Cocaine use'on increase' in Bahamas


THE INCREASING indication of
the use of cocaine in the Bahamas is
'very disturbing", Dr. Henry
Podlesvski, head of Sandilands
Rehabilitation Centre, told the
international drug abuse conference
this week.
Giving a position paper on "drug
abuse in the Bahamas", Dr. Podlewski
said that indications are that the use of
cocaine here is on the increase. "In
recent months, histories obtained from
patients revealed frequently the use of
cocaine. This was not so one year
ago," he said.
And lie referred to newspaper

Bahamian girl found with a quantity
of cocaine, and a Bahamian charged in
the United States in an alleged $1
million cocaine conspiracy.
He added that while there was no
evidence that heroin was a problem in
the Bahamas at present marijuana
appeared to be widely used.
Citing the police report of 1972, Dr.
Podlewski said the bulk of drugs
confiscated from offenders was
marijuana with 3,669 pounds, also 19
pounds of cocaine, three-quarters of a
pound of hashish, five LSD tablets and


recommended that government

He also said that the report bore out
that there was a "striking correlation"
between the incidence of drug
offences and robbery.
The doctor also quoted statistics
from a recent survey conducted by the
Ministry of Education which indicated
that 70 percent of high school
students questioned (736) believed
that drug taking was a problem in the
community, while 45% said it was a
problem in the schools.
Fortythree percent also said that
marijuana was taken by many
students.

Alcohol abuse



the greatest



drug problem


ALCOHOI. misuse is by tar
the greatest drug problem in
North America. that abuse is
growing fast than all efforts
contain it. and the way that
alcohol is used has very direct
effects upon the way all other
drugs are used in our societies.
These were the shattering
comments of 11 David
Archibald, executive director
of the Addiction Research
Foundation of 'oronto,
Canada in his keynote address
Sunday on "The Prevention of
-\ alcohol is im" to the1
international drug abuse
conference at the Sonesta
Beach Hotel sponsored by tile
World Federation for Mental
l calth. in association with the
International Council on
Alcohol and Addiction and the
(overnnient of the Bahamas.
l)r Archibald said that in
('anada 30 percent inore
alcohol ,,s drunk than 25
years ago. "In th Province of
Ontario which is generally
quite representative of the rest
of C(anada 86 percent oi

Wliji did this mean in terms,

--Pound up sharply as

uncertainty ends
LONDON The pound today rose sharply against the
U.S. dollar after the appointment of Harold Wilson as Prime
Minister and his announcement of the first of his key
Cabinet ministers.
The London Stock Market also surged ahead as optimism
returned to businessmen with the ending of Britain's
political deadlock that followed last Thursday's national
election results.
The price of gold fell but dealers said this was due to an
absence of buyers and not to any political cause.
The pound opened at 2.2887 dollars, up from Monday's
close of 2.2802 dollars. It then rose to 2.3267 dollars
before easing to 2.3217 dollars, its highest level in three
months. The British currency was also strong against key
European moneys.
Dealers said the pound's rise was helped by better
prosepcts of ending Britain's nationwide coal strike under
the new Labour government. They said the fact a
government was in power had ended the uncertainty of the
past three weeks electioneering.
David Lambert, financial editor of the Evening Standard,
said London's financial district could not have responded


more happily if Conservative
in power. (AP)


BRITAIN'S new Prime
Minister Mr. Harold Wilson
today announced members
of his Cabinet, an
experienced team whose
names became well-known
in the last Labour
Government.
The key posts went to:
Edward Short. leader of
the House of Commons:
Dinis Healey, Chancellor
of the Exchequer;
Roy Jenkins. Home
Secretary;
James Callaghan. Foreign
Secretary.
The big surprise was
Michael Foot. 60, as
Employment Secretary. The
former journalist and
prominent leftwinger is
perhaps the most passionate
orator on the Labour side of
the House of Commons.
Foot comes from a Welsh
steel and mining constituency
and knows the problems of
miners first hand. He would be
instrumental in resolving the
miners' strke that threatens to
choke off Britain's coal-fueled
electricity supplies later this
month and halt industry.
The post, however, had been
expected to go to Reg Prentice,
who held it in Wilson's
"Shadow Cabinet" Prentice
was one of the best known
representatives of the party's
moderate right wing in the
leadership but he clearly
proved too moderate for
militant trade union chiefs who
control the party's left wing.
The choice of Foot
over Prentice for the key
employment portfolio could be
a concession to the trade union
wing which provides the bulk
of Labour party funds.
Foot has long been the
darling of the trade union left.


Edward Heath had remained


government.
A terse Buckingham Palace
statement announced Wilson's
appointment as Prime Minister.
Hie previously headed the
British government from 1964
until Heath's Conservatives
defeated Labour in the 1970
general elections.
The change of government
became effective from tihe
moment Wilson kissed Queen
Elizabeth's hand in the private
audience room on the first
floor of the palace. His wife
Mary waited in a room nearby.
The Wilsons drove from the
audience directly to 10
Downing Street, the residence
of Britain's prime ministers.
Only two hours earlier Heath
had left to tender his
resignation to the Queen.


"We've got a job to do," the
pipe-smoking Wilson told a
crowd of well-wishers. "We can
only do that job as one people.
I'm going to do that job now."

NOW MINERS WILL RESUME PAY TALKS


LONDON Joe Gormley, leader of
Britain's striking coal miners, said today
he hoped to resume pay negotiations with
the state-run National Coal Board
tomorrow morning.
Neogtiations broke off Feb. 10 when
the miners began their nationwide strike
that now threatens to choke off
coal-fueled electricity supplies later this
month and halt industry.


Former Prime Minister Edward Heath's
outgoing Conservative government had
refused miners' pay demands, but Harold
Wilson's Labour Party supported them.
Labour won the most parliamentary
seats in last Thursday's general election
and Wilson formed a Government. His
first task was to settle the miners strike.
Joe Gormley, president of the National
Union of Mineworkers, met with Wilson's


new Employment Secretary Michael Foot
and then told newsmen lie hoped to
restart pay talks.

Resumption of the pay talks could
let the miners return to work while a new
pay deal is worked out. This would
permit an end of tihe three dav work
week Heath imposed on industry to saie
fuel. (AP)

Secret report: meeting called


WASHINGTON At White
House request. U1 S district
judge John J Sirica will hold a
hearing tomorrow to determine
disposition of a secret grand
jury report said to deal with
President Nixon's role in
Watergate.
"All interested counsel may
state their views regarding the
disposition of the report and
recommendation filed last
Friday by the June 1972 grand
jury," Sirica said after meeting
with lawyers for the president
and the special Watergate
prosecutor.
Earlier, deputy press
secretary Gerald L. Warren had
said "there is no present
intention" on the part of the
White House to ask that the
report be withheld from the
House impeachment inquiry.
Sirica's office said the
hearing was requested by
James D. St. Clair, Nixon's
lawyer in Watergate-related
matters.
The reference to the
"recommendation" was the


first public confirmation that
the grand jury had
accompanied its report with a
suggestion of what should be
done with it.
There had been published
reports that the jury asked it
be forwarded to the house
judiciary committee
Sirica did not spell out the
subject matter of the report in
his brief statement.
The report, said to be in 50
paragraphs, was handed to the
judge along with the Watergate

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
A LARGE SECTION of the people of Abaco feel that they
have been betrayed by Britain. Some of them are bitter about it.
1 believe that it is safe to say that a majority of the people of
that island share that feeling because a majority of the votes
polled in the September 1972 election were cast for candidates
who were opposed to independence for the Bahamas. These
people wanted to retain their link with the Union Jack.
A large percentage of the people at Abaco ... maybe a half,
maybe even more ... are descendants of Loyalists who left
America during the War for Independence rather than take up
arms against the king. They feel that th- loyalty to Britain
displayed by their forefathers should have entitled them to some
consideration by the Mother Country.
These people have not only lost their direct tie with the
Union Jack as a result of independence. They have also lost the
right to resettle in Britain, as that right is extended only to the
children or grandchildren of men from the British Isles.
I would say that these people have had a raw deal from Britain
and their disappointment and anger are justified.

From the beginning these people have not been happy with the
Pindling government. It is unfortunate that some of this feeling
has a racial overtone but they are on solid ground when they say
that the P.L.P. has fallen far below the standards maintained
under a British administration.
I need not go into detail to justify this statement. The
Bahamians are not yet prepared to face the grim truth, with the
result that everyone living in the islands must accept the harsh
injustices inflicted on many of them by this government.

There have been rumours of plans for riots and revolutions at
Ahaco but there have not been any disturbances.
llarsh things have been said, of course. This is to be expected
when people are deeply aroused but so far they have approached
their problems by peaceful means.
****** *****
Their first move was a petition to the Crown to separate them
from the Bahamas and accept them as a colony under the Union
Jack.
The argument was advanced that the Bahama Islands could not
he fragmented ... they had to go into independence as a solid
block.
This argument suited Britain. It has since been clearly
demonstrated in the case of Antigua that Britain no longer feels
any loyalty to or responsibility for loyal subjects in her
forinci Empire.
The time has come when she is determined to be rid of all
colonial ties ... and so she is not concerned about the
consequences for people who are affected by this cold-blooded
policy.
I think it is fair to say that the whole character of the British
people has changed. The government in Britain has lost all feeling
for people who formerly came under their benevolent rule.
And a large section of the people in Britain at least this is
true of the powerful labour unions in the country feel no
loyalty to their government. They are concerned only for their
personal interests.., and to hell with Britain and the rest of the
world.

Opposition to any fonn of "fragmentation" was, of course,
pushed by the P.L.P. government. I have a feeling that there were
some racial overtones to this sentiment.
You will recall in the Bible story of Moses. He told Pharoah:
'Let my people go". But Pharoah was too proud to bend until he
was forced to his knees by the hand of God.
I suppose it is fair to say that the Pindling government feel that
it would be an affront to their pride and dignity if land occupied
by the descendants of Loyalist slave owners were to be carved
out of their kingdom.
It is unfortunate that the leaders of the F.N.M. opposition
apparently shared that feeling. This has lost them some support.
Whether they will be able to recover the lost ground remains to
be seen.
I must say that the behaviour of the F.N.M. during this period
was both surprising and disappointing.

After the failure of their petition to Britain some of the leaders
of the "Free Abaco" movement faded into the background. Even
Mr. Watkins debunked! But the movement is not dead. Others
have reformed their ranks and now they have launched a
movement for self-determination within a Federal government of
the Bahamias.

That the argument against fragmenting the territory was
fallacious is shown by the fact that Anguilla succeeded in
breaking its ties with the government centered in St. Kitts.
Stronger stiil is the fact that early last year there was a
movement in the island of Tobago to break away from the parent
government in Trinidad. Dr. Eric Williams, Prime Minister of
Trinidad and Tobago, recognized their right to independence and
stated publicly that they could break away from his government
whenever they were ready to go.
Since then a small island that comes under the government of
Antigua expressed a desire to go on its own. Prime Minister Gairy.
who has ruled with an iron hand in Grenada. said that this island
could go whenever the people wanted independence.
Under the new concept of independence for all people it is
unfair and inconsistent to say that any separate island is not
entitled to independence.
There is a justifiable argument, of course, against
fragmentation of an island like Cyprus where the Greeks occupy
one section and the Turks another with a U.N. force established
in the centre of the island to maintain peace and good order.
But it is nonsence to talk about fragmentation for islands
separated by a large body of water.

I don't know how the plan now advanced by the leaders of the
Abaco movement would work ... or whether it would work at all.


That is not my concern.
My concern is to repeat my conviction that no small territory
can stand on its own without some form of alliance with a major
power.
It has been demonstrated by the weakness of the Bahamas
navy ... which is really the joke of the century ... that no force

Could the following letter of
appreciation, please be printed
in "Letters".
My husband and 1 won the
prize of an evening's
entertainment at The
Drumbeat Club on the night of
the Red Cross Ball. We booked
to go on Saturday, March 2.
Both my husband and i would
like to say a very big "thank
you" to Mr. "Peanuts" Taylor,
his floor manager, the waiter,
and the doorman.
They all were so kind and
attentive to us, made us very
welcome, and really all
contributed towards giving a
very delightful and happy


evening. The very best evening
out that we have had in
Nassau, and not just because
we were there for free.
Everybody was most
concerned to make sure that
we had a good time, and we
really did.
For hospitality, and
friendliness, we say, that the
'Drumbeat' will be hard to
beat.

in their decision to approach Canada in an effort to become allied
to that country. Canada is not a major power but it is big enough
to carry weight in the council of the nations.
The people of the Turks and Caicos islands have rejected a
proposal that they become a dependency of Jamaica or an Out
Island in the Bahamas. They have already had this sad experience.
If they must leave the protective folds of the Union Jack, they
want to go forward with a bigger country, not backward with
Jamaica or the Bahamas.
It remains to be seen whether Canada would be prepared to
accept the responsibility of administering a group of islands in the
West Indies. With Britain's attitude today ... if Canada turns them
down .. they will find themselves "between the devil and the deep
blue sea".
My suggestion to the people of Abaco is that ... if their present
movement succeeds ... they should seek a close association either
with Canada or the U.S.
I happen to know that there is a strong body of feeling in the
U.S. against taking on responsibility for any more foreign
territory. They feel the nation has too many problems now. But
there are men in Washington who recognize the strategic
importance of islands in the Bahamas to the security of the U.S.
Early in 1972, when it was thought that there might be a
change in government, I had correspondence with men in
Washington who were sounding out the idea of the Bahamas
becoming a state of the U.S. One of them came to Nassau to see
me.
This is just a thought. I pass it on for what it may be worth.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: There is some loose talk in Nassau
today about a possible coalition government embracing the
F.N.M.
This would be a great achievement for Prime Minister Pindling
and a second betrayal by the Opposition.
It would be a step towards Minister of Tourism Clement
Maynard's clear desire to establish one party government in the
Bahamas.
It would be the beginning of another political disaster for the
Bahamian people.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Men! whose boast it is that ye
Come of fathers brave and free,
If there breathe on earth a slave.
Are ye truly free and brave?
Ifye do not feel the chain
When it works a brother's pain,
Are ye not base slaves indeed,
Slaves unworthy to be freed!

Is true freedom but to break,
Fetters for our own dear sake,
And, with leather hearts, forget,
That we owe manhood a debt?
No! True Freedom is to share,
All the chains our brothers wear,
And, with heart and hand, to be
Earnest to make others free!

They are slaves who fear to speak,
For the fallen and the weak.
They are slaves who will not choose
Hatred, scoffing and abuse.
Rather than in silence shrink,
From the truth they needs must think,
They are slaves who dare not be,
In the right with two or three.

~WA AbbI


By Abigail Van Buren
C 1974 I b Chicag TriuMef-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: My husband insists that because boys
will be boys, every boy should have his first sexual experi-
ence with a prostitute. He has several reasons: She can
teach him about sex, there are no repercussions from the
encounter, and it's preferable to learning with some Mama's
girl in the back seat of a car.
I didn't know whether to laugh or hit him but on re-
covering, I informed him that the boy could wind up with
V. D., and as for learning about sex in a house of prostitu-
tion, that was tantamount to learning about good food in the
town sewer.
I also asked him if he thought that when our daughters
reach their late teens, they should go to a male prostitute,
to learn all about sex, 'cause "girls will be girls," just as
boys will be boys. He didn't think that was funny, and said
to ask Abby. So I'm asking you. M. C.
DEAR M.C.: If prostitutes offer educational courses for
inexperienced boys, it's news to me. Perhaps your husband
knows some who do. [Is he a graduate?] And what if a
student develops such a ferocious loyalty to his "alma
mater" that he keeps going back for graduate courses?
I'm on your side. Mother: And I'll bet the prostitutes
are, too.

DEAR ABBY: I am nearly 90 years old and have a
question which I hope you can answer for me as it has
troubled me for a long time.
A relative of mine has the one and only picture of my
dear departed mother and her first child-my older sister,
who is also now dead. I know that it is possible to have
pictures copied. I imagine they simply take a picture of the
original, which should do no damage to the original.
My problem is that this relative refuses to let that

it will do the original no harm to have a picture taken of it,
but is there any place where this can be done while a
person waits" She will not hear of leaving it overnight
anywhere. She lives in Chicago. Thank you.
SIGN ME "OLD"
DEAR OLD: There ought to be a photographic studio in
Chicago that would produce a copy of the original while
you and your relative wait. Ask around.

name and address, and write, "REFUSED-RETURN TO

It costs the company money to receive this piece of

list. Of course, you must refuse the mail without opening
the envelope, but I've gotten off numerous lists this way.

first-P & O are launching two
bridge cruises this year, one to
the Mediterranean in the spring,
the other to the Caribbean in
November. Side by side with
duplicate-prizes, master points
and all-rubber bridge will be
played throughout the day.
Lectures and group lessons by
Nico Gardener and myself will
start proceedings every morn-
inhough Nico is both a Euro-

Is best known, perhaps, as the
founder of the London School

How should West play ?
The expert draws trumps-
they split 2-1 and continues
with the 4A and 4Q dis
carding the 05. If North wins
and returns a diamond, West
ruffs, crosses to the 4Q and
leads the 410, playing South for
the *J. Unless North has both
the missing club honours, all is
well.
Most of the candidates for
the British women's team found
this play. And yet, declare can
do even better. Before leading
the 410, it costs nothing to cash
the ZAK. Either defender
could have a doubleton VQ. Irs
an extra chance, and in the long
run, exploiting these extra
chances spells the difference
between success and failure.
