lFawkes complaint


RANDOL FAWKES


Nat. Insurance

will increase

unemployment,

says Foulkes

IMPL-MENTATION of the
National Insurance scheme at
this time will have the effect of
further increasing living costs
and acceler a ting
unem ployment in the
Bahamas, Free National
Movement candidate Arthur
Foulkes declared today.
Mr. Foulkes, who is
.1'rit t.,ling tomorrow's St.
Barnabas by-election, said that
Bahamian workers "cannot
stand the deductions from
their paypackets and many
businesses will not bh able t
absorb the deductions in this
depressed economy without
cutbacks.
"The total result," he
as'serted, "will be an even
higher cost of living and more
unemployment."
"There was a time, and it
was not too long ago, when a
buoyant economy, a thriving
construction trade, a confident
investor cori:'.aiuy e'nd :
assured future growth and
prosperity would have made
such a scheme relatively easy
to sustain.
"Bahamians are not
skinflints," lie said. "If they
have money they do not mind
spending it and they would not
mind contributing to National
Insurance or paying more
money into the Treasury when
their income is at a reasonable
level.
"But the r idliit is that most
Bahamians just do not have the
money to eW able to maintain
an acceptable standard of
living, much less to meet the
increased burdens being
imposed on them by the
government.",
The Prime Minister's claim
that there were 10,000 jobs
available now which Bahamians
refused to take was "a fairy
tale with little resemblance to
reality." The rate oft
u n e in p loy me n t and
underemplo yment in the
Bahamas today is at a "disaster
level," Mr. Foulkes charged.
lie blamed the situation on
PLP mismanagement which
had destroyed confidence andi
reduced the economic growth
rate of the country to the stage
where "we are beginning to
compare ourselves with
chronically depressed areas of
the Caribbean."
And he added, there was no
hope in sight. "Prime Minister
Pindling talks of programmes
but we have heard of them
before. The people cannot eat
programmes."

against Outten


By NICKI KELLY
MR. RANDOL FAWKES, Labour contestant in the St.
Barnabas by-election, has filed a complaint with the Criminal
Investigation Department against Mr. Sinclair Outten for making
an allegedly false declaration concerning his place of birth.


The complaint. lodged
yesterday, calls for police
action to bring Mr. Out ten to
justice
Mr Outten revealed in
September last year that lih
had learned from his father he
was a furks Islander and not
Bahainian-born as he had
thought
As a result of the disclosure
Mr. Outten was disqualified
from sitting in the House as the
representative for cF Barnabas
after being elected in the
1972 general electio..
Since then Mr Fawkes has
levelled a number of damaging
charges against thi Progressive
liberal Party member tlaiuing
that Mr. Outten had
foreknowledge oft his place of
1birih but those nevertheless to,
testt an election open onlb
to Bahamians
I n mid-December Mr%
Fawkes publicly stated lie h ld
.orrobor'itive evidence from
Nurse Nina Selver, also a Turks
Islander, that Mr. Outten knew
h I rn 'at t 'urk- Islt, i
Further, he claimed, his
radio broadcast on the eve of
the general election had named
Mr. Outten as a Turks Islander
M'r Outten has denied an'.
acquaintance with Nurse Selverc
or ever having spoken with her
Mr. Fawkes has written the
Attorney General asking that
he take legal action to recover
the money paid Mr Outten
during his tenure in the House
and as a parliamentary
secretaIy.
The controversy surrounding
Mr Outten has been further
aggravated by the
unseemly haste wilh which lie
was granted citizenship two
months after his disclosure of
non-status.
Besides Mrs Arthur Hlana
and Mrs. Zoe Maynaird. wives
of Cabinet Ministers. Mr.
Outten is the onlt male to have
been granted citizenship thus
far. it is believed.
Immediately atter being
granted citizenship Mi Out ten
was re-nominated bI the PIP''s
National ;General (ouncli to
contest the St. Ba rinahas
by-clectio'n he decision h.i-
reacted adtersel\ on thci pc .
two of whose inmembe's broke
ranks to run as Indcpendents,
In an election where the
national state of the counritr
should have mattered most,.
Mr Outten's credibility has
become the most important
point at issue.
By-and-large PI.P campaign
meetings have been devoted 1to
defending the party's decision
to renominate Mr Outten in


ith lace of internal frkition.
The PLP candidate's
inceetings have been
conspicuous for the number of
Cabinet Ministers who have'
comnne to his defend'.
I earlier this month Prinme
Minister Lynden Pindling
declared frankly that the
motivation for keeping Mr,
Outten on was n.othini. lies
than loyalty towaids a man
who had served his party well.
"If Mr. Outten were to lose
the e!ction ow tit ji utint, I
would feel I had done my share
and it wasn't rne that let him
down," Mr Pindling sadi
For his part Mr. ()u tlien has
argued that -hc wi-I
democratically slecited by a
majority of the National
iteneral Countit n-';ihbers to
re-offer for St. Barnuhas, and
those party suipporiers who
refused to abide by their
decision were in flagrant
disregard of the principles of
democracy.
Despite the support however
of the Prune Minister and his
Ministers. Mr Outten in recent
days has been faced with a
much more damaging
allegation relating to his
nomination on December I1
for the by-election.
A report widely in
circulation alleges that two
days before the nonnmiations
Nurse Seiver was called into
Prime M\inister Lynden
Pindling's office where, in the
presence of Mr Outten, stihe
repeated a conversation she
reportedly had with \lr.
Outten ptiior to the I1)72'
election.
A letter to the editor today
asserts that Mr. Outten did not
deny Nurse Sever's statements
and the writer. Mr. Arnold
Minns, a registered voter of St
Barnabas challenges Mr.
Outten, out of obligation to
the district and to the country.

are true or not. (Miore election

SF BARNABAS voters were
urged last night to "break the
nike of PILP conformity that
nmovet s the administration
hastily in the direction of a
dictatorship." because "you
have suffered too much already
in the name of party
solidarity ."
Otfering himself as the
instrument for breaking the
"soke" was one-time PLP
stalwart Clyde K. Gardiner,
one ot three independent
candidates in tomorrow's St
Barnabas b\h-election. Mr.
t;ardiner swas making hiii

Radio Bahamas.
"I say to you tonight, the
PLP has failed you and there
seems little hope in the
opposition. Gather around me.

district in which I have placed
mIy entire future," Mr.
Gardiner said. lie operates the
'hrifty Jitney Service and the
thrifty Hlardware, both
headquartered within St
Barnabas.
The independent recalled
the "many sacrifices" made by
PIP supporters before the
party won power in 1967. His
radio address centred around
"the rank betrayal that we
have received in return for our
efforts."
He wondered whether the
PLP was any improvement on
the previous UBP Government.
"Circumstances and events
tend to indicate that our PLP
rulers are endeavouring to live
to the letter that biblical line,
'my Father chastised you with
whips, but I will chastise you

(This is the third and final article in a series I am writing on the
changes that have come about in the social structure and habits of
the Bahamian people under the impact of prosperity during the
last halfcentury).
Today the economy of the nation is in a bad way. People are
beginning to realize what I have meant when I warned that we
were up in the clouds ... riding on a bubble. And that the result
would be disastrous if the bubble were ever pricked and we came
tumbling back to the earth.
At the moment every strike is against the Bahamian people.
They are to blame for most of the misfortune that is now
overtaking them because they placed their destiny in the hands of
inexperienced, incompetent, heartless, greedy men.
And in spite of the open abuses committed by these men ... a
majority of ministers of the gospel and of the people have
continued to support them.
Everything is happening at the same time. World problems
that in the past brought us fortune, have now conspired to create
a serious situation that is beyond our control.
These problems have come at a time when the government had
already knocked all the props from under the economy.
Labour unions are also inflicting body blows on the hotel
industry that alone stands between our people and the prospect
of starvation.
And the government wants to get its "fat" hand on the
gambling casinos!

Now then, to understand the danger facing our people we must
look back and see from whence we came ... we must recreate the
image of what is commonly known as the "good old days".
At the turn of the century the total revenue of the colony
fluctuated between 75,000 and 100,000 pounds a year ... a
maximum of $500,000 at the then exchange rate of $5 to the
pound sterling.
There was one Resident Doctor at the hospital and a Colonial
Surgeon who did part time. There were no trained nurses as we
know them today. Babies were delivered by old midwives.
There was no medical or nursing service for the Out Islands.
When a person got sick in an Out Island he just laid down and
died ... and his family accepted this as the will of God.
There were very few schools ... and practically no roads ... in
the Out Islands. Many of the schools were Grant-in-Aid, taught
by a local person who could just barely read and write. Many
settlements didn't even have a Grant-in-Aid school.
Communications with the islands were poor. The monthly mail
service to Inagua, for example, often took longer to sail from
Nassau to that island than it took Columbus to discover the New
World.
Some islands notably Mayaguana -- had no mail service at
all. At Mayaguana one was as much cut off from the world as if
he were in the heart of Africa with Dr. Livingstone. As a result ...
no one visited that island. Even the settlements on the island were
cut off from each other by impenetrable bush.
Most of the people, both in New Providence and the Out
Islands, went barefooted. And whole settlements still lived in
thatched huts that their forefathers had occupied as slaves. This
was also the case in many parts of New Providence.
Even in New Providence roads were limited. East beyond Fort
Montagu and west beyond Fort Charlotte were only dirt tracks.
Roads Over-the-llill were not much better. The people
Over-the-Hill didn't begin to get good roads until they came up to
the city and asked Sir Kenneth Solomon to represent them in the
House. He was then chairman of the Board of Works and took
good care of the district.
The government had practically no money for maintaining
roads even in the city ... and so, when I was a child, prison gangs.
were used on these roads. When the government had any
mechanical work to do a drunk who had any skill was picked up
and sent back to prison.
A labourer's pay was a shilling a day for men ... 6d to 9d a day
for women. A skilled workman was fortunate if he earned I
pound ($5) a week. To earn this wage he had to be a first class
workman.

There is no doubt about it ... th pople were poor. But, since
they knew no better way of life, they were contented ... and I
would say they were happy.

There was very little money. The little money in circulation
came from industries such as sponging, sisal, pineapples, citrus
tomatoes and other exports to the U.S. before Florida was
developed.
There was also salt, hardwood and stevedore labour at Inagua.
With the exception of salt ... all these industries have
disappeared. The only new industry is lobster tails and the
lobster beds are now being overfished. Now that the Bahamas is
* independent the Cubans may take over our fishing grounds.'
But there was never fear of starvation because the ground
yielded food,fish and conch were plentiful in the sea. Today the
sea has been denuded of fish and conch in waters near
settlements in the islands and many of our people have sold their
fanning lands to real estate speculators.
SThis is a picture of where we came from in the good old days
and the grim fact is that there is nothing for our people to turn
to if and when the bubble bursts.

- I will now give you the other side of the coin in just a few
paragraphs.
The government is head over heels in debt and this year it
needs at least $150 million to meet its conmnitmnents!
Thousands of our people are now unemployed.
SToday there are about 180,000 people in all the islands. Mim'
Than half of this total are children of school age who will short'
.be looking for jobs that do not exist largely because of a
government that .. through ignorance, greed and blind spite ...
has dwarfed an expanding economy that is now further
threatened by world conditions over which no one has any
control.


This frightens you, does it'?
SYou would be a double-damn-fool if it didn't.


So much for all the unrest, uncertainty and fear that is

The good old days?

By ETIENNE DUPUCH


I


creeping over our people today.
In spite of all this the people still believe their Moses when lie
tries to shift the blame for these conditions on the energy crisis.
Our people must be really stupid if they can swallow this
biggest of all the lies the government has told.
Equally big a lie is the effort the Prime Minister is now making
to blame the rising rate of violent crime on the Opposition.
I hold no brief foi the Opposition. As I told you in this column
last week, I have stopped dabbling in elections. The people arc
free to elect to the House of Assembly whom they wish
They wished to place their destiny in the hands of the P.L.P.
and so they should not complain when they realize that they are
now like the story of the fox and the goat in the well. They are
the stupid goat.
The simple truth is that the P.L.P. introduced the "goon
squads" to politics in the Bahamas. In a general election not
many years ago the U.B.P. were unable to hold public meetings
because their meetings were not only broken up by "goons" but
many of their supporters were injured.
Whether the police were unable to handle the situation or the(
deliberately condoned it I am not in a position to say but there is
no denying the fact that the "goon squads" were the violent arm
of the P.L.P. and they dominated the situation at election time.
The time came when candidates of other parties had to
surround themselves with tough bodyguards. In view of the
history of the "goon squads", I maintain that the unhappy
incident that the Prime Minister now tries to emphasi/c in an
effort to blind the people to the truth was the direct result of an
element introduced into Bahamian politics by the "goon squads".
As I have said ... I hold no brief for the Opposition. The people
can elect whom they wish and it's just too bad for them if the\
continue to elect the wrong people to Parliament.
But I do hold a brief for the truth ... and the truth that G(od
Almighty likes is that the P.L.P is entirely responsible tot the
dark future in which they are leading the Bahamian people todiJ,i
The irony of the situation is that when the bluw strikes tihe "'tat
cats" will be able to take shelter in their well stocked ivonr
towers.
What solution do I sut est?
I don't suggest anything. My job is to bring you the tiiih. I lie
rest is your business.

Next Wednesday I will return to the travel series that I interrupted
to bring you three articles arising out of the protest of Baptist
ministers against the proposal of government to take orei
gambling casinos in Freeport and Paradise Island .. and the
slanted interview on local conditions given The Mfiami Herald hb
the Prime Minister. Tomorrow I will discuss the visit to London
of Jamaica's Prime Minister Manley who is seeking help for his
financially stricken nation.


The St. Barnabas by-election will he held on Friday.
I have mentioned the danger of the mass floating hallol.
Nothing can beat this system ... so watch it. boys.


PL
EDIT,,&i, t'he Tribune,
Please give me some space in
your most valuable newspaper
for the following comments,
Now it has been a long time
I have kept the peace and
silence as the majority of the
foreign community, as well as
Bahamians, have done in the
face of fear, harassment,
hopelessness.
But how on earth could you
have eyes to see and pretend to
be blind, have ears and pretend
to be deaf, have a tongue and
pretend to be dumb when you
see how a blind people are
being conducted by
treacherous, blind masters on
the brink of Doomsday, when
you see the intelligence of a
once friendly people daily
degraded and insulted by
hypocrites, wolves disguised
under high priests clothing?
During the last general
election I wrote that the last
choice was up to the Bahamian
people. The muddy gutters or
the blue skies. They chose
unwisely $he muddy gutters in
which they are sinking deeper
and deeper without any hope
of returning while their Moses
and saviourss" from outside
are living lavishly and telling
them that the cuase of all this
tragedy and the worsening of it
in the future is not the fault of
the P.L.P. but the present oil
energy crisis.
Oh vipers of all vipers,
mentors of all mentors, how
mean and childish you are to
blame the outside world for all
your shortcomings and mad
logic. your hypocrisy, envy,
greed, inhumanity and racial
hatred towards all those who
gave you the great chance to be
free from all the miseries of
your yesterday life.
Before you blamed the local
and the International Press,
radio and television, just the
ones who gave you -the fullest
support to gain the political
power in 1967; the recession of
1969-70 in the United States;
the world monetary crisis; Sir
Etienne Dupuch who has been
giving you incessantly free his
sound advice and wise
warnings: now for all your in-
excusable and miserable
failures for the present and the
past seven years you are
blaming the oil energy crisis
Yes. all the worldwide
political or economic problems
could have brought us some
inconveniences but had the
P.L.P. government not
implemented the most ruthless
policies and philosophies we
could have easily weathered
any political or financial
outside storm, bearing in mind
that we are away a few dozen
miles from the richest nations
in the world; the United States
and Canada. No, no, Mr. L.O.
Pindling, those are not the
reasons why your people will
sink back as you all
promised them to the life style
of a village economy. You and
all of us know the truth.

(Sir Etienne Dupuch would
like to have a talk with
Freeport when he is in
Freeport later this
month. ED.)


As a Freeporter, I saw the
birth of this once magic city at
every sunrise of a new day
coming out of the wilderness
of an inhospitable barren land.
The dream of visionary men
miraculouly seemed to become
true. Freeport, a cosmopolitan
city and thte Bahamas tht
financial centres as show places
in the eyes of a disturbed
world. But that should not be
the case because, tor the
warped mind of the P L P
leaders, that dream was too
much to understand And ,o in
a 'scii CnTe of abnormal
reasoning came the abrogation
of vital parts ot the Ilaw. ,I !
Creek Agreement, the "bend or
be broken speech." the
application of racial
immigration policies ttie
imposed crash-programninme in
order to train people without
any solid background or
schooling, the Bahamian racial
philosophy by which investors
are forced to hire black
Bahamians for jobs and
managerial positions that nml\
can be filled b, skilled people
with decades of experience.
yes, everyone wants to be Ion
top of anything as president.
executive director, manager.
assistant and so on. while
10,000 jobs Mr .'indling sais,
are available to those i. iii to
work.
In order to keep a skilled
foreign m lta antid so operaltc as
fate wants his own bustines.
the investor is 1. .. 1 to
create new titles aid positions
for a swarm o! sk\ larking
people. And woe to 11tltn whIo
dares to dismiss thtsec

annoyance or d( trnkenness.
And just to give you a pale idea
how bad the situation in this
field is I will brng yom two
examples.
Because the Flamingo Inn of
Lucaya has been unable to
dismiss a violent black
Bahamian, the hotel has closed
it doors. Not long ago the Port
Authority ran an advertisement
saying; "Wanted a porter
willing to work and accept
orders And sot when the new
law comes Mr \lasnard is
going to classify the hotels ofi
Freeport and the Bahamias as
lodging ale-houses.
Now I am seeing the slow
death of Freeport. I he
of roads and waterways.
engineering masterpieces criss-
crossing mysteriously the
island: spectral unfinished
buildings; multi-million dollar
hotels standing against the blue
skies empty: villas, houses,
pools and landscapes being
vandali/zed arid in shambles:
quarters of the city becoming
.slums despite the high.
commendable efforts of the
foreign community.
What does not hear the
desperate outcry of the big
and especially the small
investors who lost overnight

COST OF NEWSPRINT UP AGAIN
MILLINOVKET, MAINE (AP) The Great Northern Paper
Co.. citing a 300 per cent increase in the cost of oil during the
past four months, announced Wednesday that it will increase the
cost of newsprint by $17 per ton.
Effective Feb. 4, Great Northern will charge $225 per ton. It
had raised the price per ton from $195 to $208 on Jan. 1.
"Within the last four months, our average cost of oil delivered
to the mills has increased from $4 per barrel to $12 per barrie,"
said Brian H. Staples. vice president for sales.
Staples said the papermaking process requires the consumption
of almost three barrels of oil to produce one ton of newsprint.
"This means that our production cost of paper has increased by
more than $20 per ton in the same (four-month) period," he said.

They announced their

weeks after settling in the nes\

but perfect for Harris and his
fiancee. It's secluded and
private and the only noise one
hears is the sound of happs
birds chirping among the thick
foliage.
"It's exactly the was I like
it. that's whs I thought it."
Harris said. "Anne and I are
going to spend a lIt il time
here."
Hlarris and Miss ITurkel
arrived here Dcr. 2-, and were
joined by Harris' three children

His theatrical voice tilled the
air as he talked about his new
Bahamian home.
"I congratulate you on your

What does he do when lie's

Sawes said i timnK the
attempt to establish price
control was a genuine desire to
help the people. What has
happened is that not enough
intelligent acumen is there to
administer it."
Mr. Fawkes was challenged
to explain why, after
representing St. Barnabas for
16 years up to September,
1972, no park was ever
provided for his constituents.
The CLP leader pointed out
that during his first 13 years in
the House there was a UBP

BAHAMIAN INDUSTRIAL
development should have as its
goal Bahamian self-sufficiency,
not competition with the
industrial powers, said Arthur
Foulkes, (pictured) FNM
candidate in the St. Barnabas
by-election.
In a "rap session" sponsored
by the Interdenominational
Christian Youth Asspciation at
the Stephen Dillet Primary
School on Wulff Road, ICYA
chairman Alfred Sears asked
the FNM standard-bearer:
"What local industries do
you envisage to supplement
our economy?"
Said Mr. Foulkes:
"There are a number of
industries we could have, but I
want to warn that it is my own
belief that the Bahamas
cannot compete with the
industrial powers of the world.
"I say that Tourism can
remain for a long time yet a
solid foundation for a thriving
economy, and that we can
build clothing, farming and
fishing industries to supply our
own needs and to sell to the
tourist small manufacturing
to make ourselves
self-sufficient."
He said the basic philosophy
of the FNM was to "enrich the


took over I was the first to
advocate a park and a
community centre, but St.
Barnabas was so congested we
had to make a compromise
with Edmund Moxey. So a
community centre was built on
the boundary between St.
Barnabas and Coconut Grove."
Mr. Fawkes was also asked
to say what he thought an
independent House member
could accomplish in a
two-party system of politics.
In reply, he referred to the
fact that it was his House vote
which in 1967 made it possible
for the PLP to form the
Government.
"What can one man do? One
man can lift you out of slavery
and onto the road to
freedom," he declared.

quality of life" for Bahamians,
but "I believe also that
whatever we try to do it is
basically an economic problem.
We have to seek economic
salvation and the people who
say that isn't important are
lying to you."
He went on: "I will not
stand and say I will do this and
that if elected, because I know
that certain things cannot be
done until that Government is
changed. None of the things we


EDITOR, The Tribune,
In the last election you
came to the people of St.
Barnabas and offered yourself
as a candidate. Everybody
knew that your parents were
from Turks Island but that
did not matter. Some people
said you were not a Bahamian
but you declared yourself as a
Bahamian when you
nominated. The people
believed you.
Now, Mr. Outten, it does
not really matter where you
were descended from but
what matters very much is
the truth. After the election
and independence we were
told by you that you were
born in Turks Island, not the
Bahamas, and therefore were
not a Bahamian and were not
qualified to sit in the House
of Assembly.
You told us that you did
not know this fact when you
nominated and that you just
found it out from your
father.
Well, Mr. Outten. I hear
another story which is going
the rounds and I think it is
only fair under the
circumstances that you


talk about can be done unless
we have a vibrant economy."
Mr. Foulkes had to defend
his party's pro-foreign
investment policy in the fact of
the assertion by one questioner
that foreigners were taking
over Bahamian land.
Mr. Foulkes stressed that the
FNM was talking about foreign
development of Bahamian land
on a partnership basis under
which the foreigner would
provide the finance, thec
Bahamas would provide the
land, and the land would
re main under Baihamrian
ownership.
Mr. Foulkes also rapped
certain elements, particularly
young people, who "suggest
that this and that is irrelevant
in the education system. Ms
view is that the people of the
nation should be educated not
only to make a living, but that
they should be able to get the
best out of their living."
He said he was referring to
cultural aspects. lie said the
system should be such that
even the holders of the lowliest
jobs could appreciate various
kinds of music.
"What kind of life does a
streetsweeper have if his life
consists of sweeping the


should tell us before we vote
whether there is anv truth in
it.
The story is this:
Nurse Selver, an old Turks
Island lady, told you in 1972
at a social function that you
were a Turks Islander and as
such should not get involved
in Bahamian politics You
replied to her that son knew

to run any way..
After you left the House of
Assembly Nurse Selver met
Mr. Clement Maynard and
told him the story. Mr.
Maynard told the Prime
Minister and the Prime
Minister called in Nurse
Selver. Nurse Selver repeated
the same story to him in your
presence and you did not
deny it. That was before vou
nominated for the St.
Barnabas by-election.
Now. Mr. Outten., that is
the story which is going
around. I think you owe it to
the voters of St. Barnabas and
the country to say if it is true
or not.

Knowles: Plight of the working man


THE BAHAMIAN labour
movement is seeking a voice in
the House of Assembly, by
contesting the St. Barnasbas
by-election, in order to bring
home to the nation "the plight
of the working man in this
country today," a spokesman
said last Friday.
Hotel Union president
David Knowles was
representing organised labour's
candidate Dudley Williams at a
"rap session" sponsored by the
Interdenominational Christian
Youth Association.
Mr. Knowles said the unions
had devised no specific
platform "showing all kinds of


bright objectives" like the
political parties have, "because
the people of St. Barnabas
simply need a better way of
life and that covers all the
objectives the political parties
have put forward."
Mr. Knowles anticipated
questions as to the
effectiveness of a single,
non-aligned House member.
"We are trying to get one
single voice inside so we can
agitate the situation with that
one voice inside the House in
order to get the plight of the
working man recognized.
"We have decided to at least
establish our identity as a


separate, thinking body. We
appeal to the workers of St.
Barnabas to recognize that the
unions have been here since
1958 and we haven't turned
our backs on them as the 'l PI
have done."
Mr. Knowles' presence.
authorized by the ICYA after
Mr. Williams notified the
organizers two weeks in
advance that he could not
make it, brought loud protests
from CLP candidate Randol
Fawkes.
Mr. Knowles took the first
opportunity to hit back:
"I think all who are present
have seen a perfect display by


the master, who decided tl.
performI before you. hi.
performance should indicate t
you that I, still! lf i. that saunmt
kinu o1 orp;er:itiijn.
"It is our feeling in the1
labour movement that we
cannot afford to have such :i
person representing the people
of St. Barnabas because the
time for this sort of thing i
long gone
t is better for us jll to
keep that kind of perfonirane
out of the House where we get
it for free. instead of in tlhe
House where you hake to pay
hard-earned dollars for it

Mr. Foulkes was asked for
his opinion of former

that post because of his

Darling: I'll deal

TIlE ST. BARNABAS
constituency needs "true
representation" of its people,
not campaign promises for
"things" already provided,
independent candidate in the
Friday by-election Ruby Ann
Cooper-Darling said last
week.

Mrs. Darling was one of the
few candidates who
part icipated in the
I nt erdeno binational
Christian Youth Association's
"rap session' at the Stepheni
Dillei Primary School on
Wultf Road Friday niaht

Mrs Dailinog included b.,isi
amenities like tirn intgi svs ie.
paved roads and street light
in the catch-all term "things".
which she said hase been
provided in the constituents
ever since she became a
resident there, in 1959.

"St. Barnabas has an
international situation." she
said. "What is needed is not
things, its getting at the
people

"St Barnabas needs true
representation, someone who
would think about their
bodies, their spirits and their
souls. If I am elected I intend
to deal with the welfare of St.
Barnabas. and I don't intend
to represent St. Barnabas


S t r e ss i n g her

VOTER IS TIRED OF PINDLING'S SWEET TALK


EDITOR The Tribune,
According to The Tribune
dated Jan. 4th Mr. Pindling
stated that sinclair Outten was
loyal. Knowing Mr. Outten one
can't dispute this, (so were
Spurg, Orville & Paul). Mr.
Pindling you can't say Fawkes
was not loyal. Man in the
summer of 1956 he
campaigned for you telling the
voters "if you all are not going
to vote for Pindling don't vote
for me."
Sir, do you remember, it
seems like only yesterday?
He helped you form your
first government. He didn't
have to but he did. This was
loyalty. This is the same
Fawkes who, while talking on
the floor of the House of
Assembly, you chanted
"Donkey Bray a Ha". Enough
about loyalty.
It was all right for you as
Opposition Leader to throw
the mace out of the window.
Right? -
But it's not fair for Moxey
to bear placards in the House
of Assembly. Holy cow, man,
what's happening. Are we in a
democratic country?
It's all right for the chicken
man to go up on his chicken
(boy that would have been
something for him to kill all of


them and eat them). It was all
right for the milk man to go up
on his milk. It was all right for
the merchant to say he was not
going to sell his flour, but its
not all right for the gas station
operators to close their gas
stations.
We better take stock and
examine our heads. Something
is wrong.
It's all right for cement and
walcrete made in the Bahamas
to cost as much or more than
the American and English
product. It's all right for you,
Mr. Pindling, to promise us a
construction boom over two
years ago. Your crystal ball was
bleaky.
Is it fair for you, Mr.
Pindling, to tell us that there
are 10,000 jobs available?
Like I told a friend of mine,
the 10,000 jobs you spoke
about can only be if we have
Junkanoos on Bay Street every
day and pay the spectators to
watch it.
How long will you evade the
issue of survival for the poor
man, Mr. Pindling? Will you
night after night just sweet talk
us? Nero fiddled while Rome
burned. Are you going to
sweet-talk us while we drift
further and further from the


LETERTOTH E 0O


shores of safety?
Your theme song was
Edoxus. Sir. don't you
remember, not too long ago,
saying five to six years ago how
well off this country was?
Construction was booming.
everything was swinging. No
robbery in broad daylight or
anything like that. Would you,
Mr. Pindling, walk over the hill
with $200 to $300 in bills and
flash them in front of people
who are willing to work but
can't find jobs9?
I have seen hungry dogs eat
raw corn. That's all I will say.
Mr. Moxey said that the
backbenchers don't know
what's carrying on. I don't see
why they don't come to the
people and let them know the
whole story because you and
your Cabinet don't do
anything. I guess you all voted
for yourselves. I guess you all
beleive that the P.L.P. belongs
to you and a selected few. If
it's so, it's wishful thinking,
The construction man is
worrying if he will ever work
again. The maid, the bus boy,
the waiter, they are all
wondering when they will


work full time again. And .o'ni
are talking about who the
F-N.M is going to make a
Senator Why didn't you ask
"how much of fyou all are
working? IHow much had a
square meal (not deal) today .
Honestly,. the way things are
going don't you think you all-
should cut your salaries. say in
half. and then you all in my
opinion will still be ovrci paid.
When a baseball team is
going bad the owners fire the
manager.
When a cricket team is going
bad it's the captain and right
down the line. You are the
head of the team, so the blame
must fall on you.
You are in the Cabinet, all
the decisions which are passed
you are a part of it. You are
the leader so why should the
blame go elsewhere?
You said a few years ago "it
you can't fish or cut bait get
out of the boat."

Mr Pindling, you said these
words. Now, Sir, can you do
them? I can even spin for
pilchards, no bait is required.
One should think that on


the question of the lcaisno
takc,, enrr thcre should hasec
been a referendum, but NO,
that was. not the pubh. -- the
people who voted ,or \ou all -

GARDINER SLAMS PLP


From Page 1
would have employed many
construction workers and
"would have fed many who do
not now know where the next
meal is coming from."
Mr. Gardiner dealt only
briefly with the fact that the
PLP nominee, Sinclair Outten,
had to resign the St. Barnabas
seat after discovering he was
born in Turks Island. (Mr.
Outten had to be naturalised
as a Bahamian before winning
the PLP nomination.)
"Elections cost money," Mr.
Gardiner pointed out, "It is
indeed a pity that at this


yuletide period the needy folk
of this country are not able to
benefit from the money that
Government now has to spend
on an election.
"This is wasted money; for,
had it not been for the gross
.tKlik ene. of the PLP
Government. a T. I. could
never have purported to be a
Bahamian and for such an
unreasonable period enjoyed
the lucrative salary of an M.
P."
lie made it clear that "we in
St. Barnabas will utilise the
machinery of the law to
recover our hard-earned cash."

Lions to win


by IVAN JOHNSON
FOR TIIF FIRST time this
season Red Lions will be under
considerable pressure when
they play Dynamos in
Sunday's B.F.A. game at
Clifford Park.
With only 16 registered
players, the Lions were hit by a
spate of injuries last week.
Maples, Whitfield, Bartram.
lHenderson were injured while
Green was off the island.
leaving the lions with 11
players to battle against the
Saints.
St. Georges forced a draw
and the Lions dropped their
first point this season.
McAlpine moved top of the
League with 1 2 points.
With 1 I points, the Lions
must win on Sunday to retain
their lead at the top of the
table.
Earlier in the season a Lions
victory against cellar dwellers
Dynamos would have been a
foregone conclusion but with
Bartram and Henderson
doubtful for Sunday and
Whitfield definitely out, an
upset could be in the making.
('lub secretary Tony Walker
confirmed this morning that
skipper Don Maples is now
fully recovered from his back
injury and John Green has
returned.
However. Rick Barrett who
pulled a groin muscle in last
week's game is now very
doubtful for Sunday,
Ilenderson's leg is still in
plaster, Paul Whitfield is still
suffering from torn ankle
ligaments, and Bartram must
undergo a fitness test in
training tonight.
The absence of Whitfield's
speed and ability to beat any
defence in the air and on
the ground has taken much
'sting' out of the Lions attack
in recent games.
In addition to this, Bartramn
is the key player in defence,
Henderson plays a valuable role
in midfield and Rick Barrett
has proved himself to be one of
the best full backs in the
league.
No doubt the Lions will not
have forgotten their last
encounter with Dy namos three
weeks ago.
In that game the Lions
clinched a narrow 2 1 win in
the closing minutes through a
goal by Maples.
However, in spite of these
injuries. Walker feels the Lions
can win and move top of the
League again.


"I don't think we will have
too much trouble beating
Dynamos but we certainly
won't underestimate theinm,
particularly without our full
side," said Walker.
"Dynamos may not play
good football but they're
always trying and running
straight at you."
Defending League
champions Tropigas are also
plagued by injuries. Sunday
they meet Paradise.
SL ipp, r Randl Rodgcrs said
today: "We just don't seem to
be able to get eCveiyone fit at
the same timee'
Andy Gantine will play
Sunday but he has a bad leg.
Dennis Cole has torn blood
vessels in his left thigh and Bert
Laing is doubtful with a bad
foot
On top of this Tropigas no
longer have the services of
outside left Samnmy IHaven who
has returned to colli.ge. ILiven
was always dangerous when in
possession ot the hall.
The defending champs
desperately need a win. They
have lost their last three games.
Two to McAlpine and one to
Sunday's opponents,
Paradise.
Paradise have only one
doubtful tor Sunday.
Star midfield player Oscar
Fullone is still suffering from
torn ligaments in his right knee
but according to reports will
probably play.
Paradise, with 8 points from
six games, could make a late
bid for the championship
should the Lions or McAlpine
slip.
Strinker Hector Rossi will he
back in the Paradise lineup.
DAVID SIGNS
FOR LEICESTER
PORT OF SPAIN Steve
David, one of Trinidad's
outstanding players in the
World (Cup qualify ing finals in
Ilaiti recently, has turned
professional.
The yo uthful police
constable, who scored the most
goals s even) in the Concacat
finals., has signed for a trial
