tlut the Board could not go
back on its decision, but
wanted to give parents the
choice ot sending their children
to St Ilcle's school in Kenmp
Road or to other government
schools Said tHarold M.
Longley,. chairman of the
hoaird, "the linal decision has

Asked by a parent if the
board could not reconsider its
decision, Mr. Longley replied:
"I'm afraid I don't see how the
board could reverse its decision
on the matter."
At the end of the three hour
meeting it was decided that
next week the 133 children
attending the school will be
given a transfer form for
parents to fill out and return
indicating whether they intend
to send their child to St. Bede's
or to a Ministry of Education
school.
In opening the meeting Mr.
Longley said that "tonight is a

By NICKI KELLY
TAXI UNION MEMBERS,
told they cannot expect further
fare raises, are particularly angry
because much of their present
hardship, they claim, is the
result of additional government
fees.
"Just the increases caused by
government alone warranted
more than a 30 per cent
increase," union president
Richard Moss said today.
After two lengthy meetings
this week with Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling and Transport
Minister George A. Smith, union
representatives were optimistic
the government would
understand their need for a 50
per cent fare increase, rather
than the 30 per cent announced
by Transport Minister Smith
Monday.
Instead, a letter
hand-delivered from Mr. Smith


has decided to discontinue
classes here at St. Anselm's".
He reminded them that it
was back in 1969 that Fr. John
)arby (then Superintendent of
Catholic Schools) first pointed
out to parents the financial
drain of keeping the school
open.
"In an effort to keep the
doors open." he said, "parents
Iwre asked to contribute, but
either by choice or lack of
financial means, this caused
sonic parents to discontinue
sending their children to the
school. As a direct result of
this student loss, the school has
been on the decline."
lie said that of the 130 to
133 students at the school,
"there are only about 14 or 15
students in the sixth grade."
And this cost, he said, in
relation to the number of
children being taught is high
and increasingly hard to bear.
(Catholic School
Superintendent, Sister
Maedene Russell, later in the
meeting called classes of 13 or
14 "a luxury" and "nowhere
else in the Bahamas do they
have such small numbers of
pupils.")
Said Mr. Longley: "We
recognize that many of you
parents were trying to make
the payments $12 per term
Sbut the fees raised in 1973
amounted to approximately
$5,000 whereas the cost of
operating the school is in
excess of $25,000. We have
here a situation of increasing
costs of operating and lower
intake."
And he went on: "I know
that some of you are prepared
to take the higher fees rather
than see the school close, but
when the board recognized the
make-up of the parents, we felt
that this would not be
possible."
"1 don't see that we have
any other choice," he said.
The school board had met


to the union president at his
Taxico Union office shortly
after 7 p.m. last night made it
clear that there was to be no
change.
The contents of the Minister's
letter were communicated to
about 100 union members who
met to hear the outcome of this
week's discussions with
government.
Mr. Moss declared today that
the men were "shocked." He
said they felt the government
should have discussed its 30 per
cent proposed increase with the
union before announcing it.
"The drivers thought that if
both parties had got around the
table again there would have
been agreement when the
announcement was made,
instead of their having to
propose amendments after-
wards."

\ (',miihiia.iil Road resident,


in the bank making deposits,
said that the raider was also
wearing a straw hat.
"When he got inside the
bank, he began pulling up the
scarf. fumbling with it until it
was up over his nose. Then he
walked over by where tellers
were and jumped onto the
Souintr saying "fifl 'er up," she
said.
The bag he carried appeared
to be a pillow case, she said
and after the tellers had put a
considerable amount of money
into it, he walked quickly out
and sped off in his car.


"It didn't appear as if he had
anybody y else with him inside
the car, he seemed to be
alone," she said.
Police, were shortly on the
scene but unavailable for
comment. And, for a while
after the incident, the doors of
the bank remained locked to
the public.
Bank manager Phil Chalmers
also declined comment.
The bank robbery comes
just three weeks after the
hold-up of the Royal Bank of
Canada at Lyford Cay in which
police arrested and charged


two Coconut Grove nen.
Over $38,000 was taken in
that hold-up and recovered by
police during the arrests.
The Palmdale branch of the
Bank of Nova Scotia is housed
in a two-storey building at
Madiera and Patton Streets.
Customers and workers in
the "Wee Care" children's
clothing store inside the same
building were unaware of the
bank robbery until police
arrived on the scene, they said.
The bank was opened in
October 1972 and had never
before been hit by robbers.


with the Ministry ot
Education, he said. and they
recognized their obligation of
educating all of the children of
the Bahamas. And so they were
prepared to absorb the
students of St. Anselmn's into
the public school system, he
said.
But he told his audience that
St. Bede's School had
accommodation for more
students as their present
enrollment was only 147.
Members of the Catholic
School board present to answer
parents' questions were Bishop
Leonard Hagarty. Catholic
Supt. of Schools Sister
Maedene Russell, headmaster
of St. Anselm's Anthony
Carey, a trustee Nigel Jones
and the priest in charge of the
parish, Fr. Benjamin Collins.
When the meeting was
thrown open to parents, one
asked why had the board
decided to close this school
instead of transferring the
overflow in other schools to St.
Anselm's. And she didn't want
to send her children such great
distances to school.
Another irate parent said
"these children were born in
Fox Hill. I got my education in
the Catholic school system.
The government is supposed to
be giving us 65 percent grant in
aid. The government is also
asking us to pay national
insurance and what not. Now,
the govt. is paying this 65%,
but you did not say anything
of this in your talk. It seems
though that all you want is
money."
Sister Maedene said that the
55% grant from govt. only
took care of teachers' salaries.
"but the incidentals involved in
the day to day operations
amount to over this ... And it's
not true to say we are closing
the doors on the children, but
what we are saying is that
children are able to be properly
educated in other schools,"


It was stated that the cost to
the diocese of St. Anselm's in
the past four years amlounmtcld
to well over $80,000. And
since the month started, it was
said, the board had to get
$2,747 from the bishop's
office to pay for teachers'
salaries at the school. "This is
because the parish parents are
not paying the $12 mininium
fee," said Sister Maedene.
But one parent asked: "llow
do we know that next Marclh.
when we have transferred otur
children, we won't be sitting in
St. Bede's school and being
told we will have :o transfer
our children to Our Ladv's'
however, a parent blasted
the board for not consulting'
the parents "at any time"
before reaching their decision
and slammed: "Did you have
any representatives from the
group of parents in on the
board's meeting before you
decided to close the doors and
slam your decision down our
throats?"
But it was the headmaster,
Mr. Carey, who had the last
word.
"There are lots of people in
here tonight making noise who
have not been co-operating
with the school. I know this
and can call names but it's not
my intention to embarrass
anyone."
He went on: "A half of the
school fees for last year still
remains unpaid. A situation
arose where I sent a few
children home. When this took
place, I hate to say it, but
many parents came to the
school and openly abused me.
"The situation is that we
just don't have sufficient
parents who care. The parents
in this school are to blame."
and he added: "If you worked,
if you stopped sitting around
on your fannies, we'd get
somewhere."


membership, the government's
action was "dictatorial."
Mr. Moss pointed out that
since 1969, when the last taxi
fare increase was approved, the
customs duty on cars has been
increase 60 per cent. Taxi
licences have gone up nearly 100
per cent; gasoline has- risen 72
per cent from 49 cents to 80
cents and twice yearly
inspections cost $10.
Further, Mr. Moss noted, the
government receives in excess of
26 cents on every gallon of gas.
These increases, he added, did
not include the general cost of
living which had gone up
"tremendously" in four years.
"On the basis of the
government's own increases, the
men felt they should have been
given at least a 40 per cent raise
on tares," the union president
said.
The union feels it has no


alternative but to accept the
government imposed rates which
are now law. "What else can we
do at this stage?" Mr. Moss
asked.
In his letter last night Mr.
Smith discussed the three
outstanding points at issue.
These were: the initial rate for
two people for the first fifth of a
mile; charges for extra
passengers and the new rates as
they applied to Freeport.
The union had sought to have
the starting rate increased from
60 cents for the first !4 of a mile
to $1 for the first 1/5 of a mile.
The government ruled it should
be 90 cents.
"It is felt that 90 cents for the
first 1/5 of a mile is both fair
and reasonable," Mr. Smith
wrote the union. "It represents
an increase of 10 cents per year
since the last fare increase was
made and is the same as if the


-Telephone union-



threatens



strike vote


THll GRAND Bahama
Telephone communications
Workers Union today
threatened to take a strike vote
against the Grand Bahama
Telephone Company following
the breakdown in negotiations
for a wage contract.
Union president James
Thompson said today that the
union has still not been able to
obtain a recognition agreement
from the company, although it
is registered with the Ministr\
of Labour.
"We started contract
negotiations in January. hut \iw
are not getting anywhere," Mr.
Thompson said.
He told The Tribune that
the union had filed notice of a
dispute with the deputy Chief
industrial Officer on March 7
and expected to take an early
strike vote unless sonic
progress was made in the talks
with management.
The two parties were slated
to meet again lTueslda at the
request of the Ministry of
Labour, but Mr. Thompson
said there was no indication
the telephone company had
changed its position.
Points in dispute among
others are: wage scales,
vacations and severance pay.
Mr. Thompson said
management was offering
$2.40 per week in some
categories ''which is


completely unacceptable," and
had refused to make any
counter proposals to those
submitted by the union.
The GBTCWU, with 60
workers, represents 80 per cent
of the telephone company
staff. he said.
"We've got another Holiday
Inin situation here where the
general manager, Mr. Lowell
Brown, says he doesn't have
authority to conclude an
agreement."
According to the union
head, Continental Telephone
Company, the U.S. corporation
which controls the Freeport
company, plans to send one of
its chief executives to Grand
Bahama for the Tuesday talks.
Another area of
disagreement is the dismissal in
October of two employees
before the union was
registered.
Mr Thompson said that the
Ministry of Labour and Labour
Minister Clifford Darling had
ruled the dismissals were cases
of victimization and ordered
the workers reinstated and
compensated.
Thus far the company has
refused to comply with the
order, although the Minister
has made two trips to Freeport
with regard to the matter.
"The case may end up in
court," Mr. Thompson said.


'Stay away from


Vesco' order


NEW YORK A volunteer
fund-raiser for President
Nixon's re-election campaign,
who said he got the first word
that financier Robert L. Vesco
wanted to be a big contributor,
told a jury today former
Attorney General John N.
Mitchell later told him to stay
away from Vesco.
Daniel Hofgren, who
became a deputy assistant to
the president after the 1968
campaign, testified at the
federal court conspiracy trial
of Mitchell and former
Commerce Secretary Maurice
Stans.
The two former Cabinet
members are accused of
impeding a fraud investigation
of Vesco in return for his
secret $200,000 campaign
contribution.
Hofgren said he heard of
Vesco in a chance meeting on a
London-to-New York flight


Feb. 13, 1972, from a
seatmate, Gilbert Straub, a
Vesco associate.
He said they were having
lunch on the plane and when
he mentioned his work with
the Nixon campaign Straub
volunteered that Vesco was
interested in making a large
contribution.
Hofgren said that after
arrival in New York he
mentioned the incident to
Stans. who was finance
chairman of the campaign.
About three weeks later, a
meeting was arranged between
Vesco and Stans with Hofgren
present.
Hofgren said Stans told
Vesco he was hoping to raise
$40 million and hoped to find
20 to 25 individuals to
contribute $200,000 or more.
He said Vesco said he wanted
to be "in the forefront a
major contributor." (AP)


fare were $1 for the first 1/4 of
a mile."
Mr. Moss said he did not
understand the reasoning
involved here.
Regarding the union's rtequ st
for $1.50 for each additional
passenger over two, Mr. Smith
said: "On careful analysis it
would be found that SI extra
for the conveyance of each
additional passenger over two is
a substantial increase over what
was previously the case."
Mr. Moss explained that
where the fare was $6.50 or les~,
the union had asked for $1 extra
to be paid on every additional
passenger and S1.50 where the
fare was in excess of $6.50.
Government however, had
submitted SI for the entire
journey.
In his letter Mr. Smith said
the $I "will allow the taxi driver
to greatly improve his earnings

Oter journeys of 10 mil"' or less
and afford him a reasonable
increase over what was
previously the case for the
journey in excess of ten miles
say to Paradise Island."
"We were getting Sl before so
I don't understand what this
means," Mr. Moss observed.
lHe said the union would have
been satisfied if the government
had at least granted them the
.extra 50 cents, even if it was not
prepared to make the starting
rate S1.
Previously the union drivers
charged nothing for a child
under three and half fare if the
youngster was between 3 and 10
years.
The new rates specify only
that a child under 3 will not be
charged, but said nothing about
a child between 3 and 10. The
union had asked that the
half-fare proviso be put in,
otherwise the assumption was
that any child over 3 would be
charged full fare.
This, apparently was the
government's intention. "'The
fact that children over 3 years
are eligible to pay full fare
rather than half further
improves the situation," Mr.
Smith wrote.
Mr. Moss pointed out that
the effect of the new fares in
Freeport was to actually
reduce the earnings of drivers
from what they were tinder the
1969 price structure.
Before, on : 20 to. 30 mile
journey with two people, a
freeport driver would make
S 1.70. With eight people in
the car, he could, by law,.
collect an extra S12 for the
six- $2 a head making a
total of S23.70.
Now the cost for 8 people
over tile same route is $20.80.
"In effect the drivers would
be losing money. The
g- 'ern r.,eit saw i:;,is but chos>d
to overlook it," the union
president said.
Wrote Mr. Smith: "In the
special circumstances of Grand
Bahama my analysis has shown
that on a Freeport to West End
journey, some 27 miles
with two passengers, the drive
will earn over 25 per cent more
than previously with two
passengers: that with four he
will earn approximately S1
more than previously and only
with six passengers will it be
slightly less.
"'Iow often," asked the
Minister. "'will tlhe driver have
six passengers on such a
journey'"
Mr. Moss pointed out that
eight passenger Cadillacs are
used on the Freeport-West End
run to handle the large visitor
groups making the journey.
Il.h effect of the new fares
\voiliid in fact discourage a
driver from carrying more than
four passengers. "With four
passengers he will make $1
more out of which must come
an additional 24 cents to cover
lthe latest gas increase," he said.
In view ot the government's
attitude on the fares, the union
does not know what to expect
on tile government's proposal
to establish a bus service
between Nassau International
Airport and downtown Nassau.
"We told the government
that the taxis could provide a
cheaper, more effective and
more convenient service,
because it is easier for a visitor
to go straight to his destination
by taxi than to come
downtown by bus and theci
have to take a cab back to his
hotel," Mr. Moss said.

Haiti on the march


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
1 HAVE always been fascinated by the history of Haiti. It is a
sad but interesting story.
My wife and I visited Haiti for the first time about 15 years
ago. I liked it because it was different ... something new ... in my
experience of foreign countries. It wasn't until I visited Africa a
few years ago that I saw anything like it.
There was poverty and dirt on all sides but I found the Haitian
people friendly. They had charming manners.
And, in spite of all the lurid stories of obeah one hears about
the island, they seem on the whole to be a law-abiding people.
A friend of mine, who had lived in Haiti for a number of years
told me that he felt safer in Haiti than in Nassau.
"For one thing ," he said, "women are not molested on the
streets in Haiti: Women are not raped in their homes and there is
little violence among the people themselves."
Apparently you are perfectly safe from harm in Haiti ...
provided you keep out of politics. Fool with politics and you are
likely to get your throat cut around the next corer.

During the last war I acted as Honorary Consul in Nassau for
Haiti. This brought me in close contact with the Haitian people. I
really liked them.
And I think everyone in Nassau today will tell you that the
Haitian labourer is a good workman ... that is, as long as you are
around to see that he is on the job. If you go away on a trip he is
likely to take another job and you go on paying him for doing
nothing.
In spite of this fault ... I still like the Haitian people.

Most of the governments of Haiti ... from the very beginning of
their independence ... have been produced by revolution or
military coup. That is why it is not safe to dabble in politics in
that island.
Because of this situation the men who hold office are not
always very efficient.
I found it impossible to carry on correspondence with the
Foreign Office while I was the Honorary Consul for the island.
They never answered a letter.
All this changed when Paul Eugene Magloire took over the
government in a military coup and he headed a military junta that
ruled the country until he was established as President of the
republic.
Magloire ran an efficient administration For the tirst time I was
able to exchange correspondence with the Foreign Office. He
soon became the subject of favourable comment in the American
and British press because his foreign policy was sound and was
efficiently conducted.
I was happy about this change because it seemed a shame that
the only black republic in this hemisphere should be still bogged
down in inefficiency after nearly two centuries of independence.
But unfortunately politicians in Haiti ... and most Central and
South American countries ... have one weakness. They seem to
think that a man in public office has a right to take care of his
own interests while he has a chance ... because no man is
expected to stay in office too long.
Curiously enough, people in these countries apparently expect
public men to be dishonest ... as long as he doesn't take too much
for himself.
I was emphasizing the importance of honesty in government in
a conversation with a South American newspaper editor some
years ago when he broke into the middle of my argument with
the comment: "Eh, eh, Dupuch. If you tie a horse to a post in a
grass field ain't you expect him to graze?"
And so it wasn't surprising ... but very disappointing for me ...
when Magloire suddenly bailed out of the country with a large
chunk of the public treasury.
The people ot Haiti hated him for this action ... not because he
had bailed out and taken money from the Treasury because that
is what has been expected of public men in the republic. Their
only complaint was that he had taken too much!
An interesting article on Haiti by Alphonse Max appeared in
the January 28th. news despatches of The Swiss Press Review and
News Report under the caption "Haiti Emerges From The Middle
Ages".
"Haiti is a country of apparent contradictions," Alphonse Max
wrote. "Ninety percent of the population are illiterates who live
in huts which lack sanitation and other basic essentials of modern
life. At least a third are jobless, and the average income of $80 a
year is the lowest in the Western Hemisphere. The minimum daily
wage of $1 is enough to lure hundreds of Haitians to the capital
of Port-au-Prince each month."

I will break into Alphouse Max's story to tell you that during
my visit to Haiti about 15 years ago I was told by a business man
there that he had a personal servant for every member.of his
family. He fed them ... and the wage was $1 a month!

"Despite the hardships, Alphon;se Max's story continued, "the
mostly black population sings and laughs in the streets of the


capital and in the villages. Art is flourishing, both modern street
sculpture and primitive African painting, moulded into a
'distinctive form of Haitian expression. The latter speaks of the
-talent and imagination carried across the ocean centuries ago
when the people were brought from West Africa as slaves."

From those facts you may realize how much it means to a
ilatian to be able to work in the Bahamas and earn $10 to $15
J day. If he saves his money he can go back to Haiti after a few
years and establish himself as a small town capitalist.
* * ** *"
But things are changing in Haiti. A dollar a day minimum wage
is a first step towards building an economy that will pay still
higher wages.
After all, it is not such a long time since ... after several years
*of effort ... Percy Christie, who then represented the Western
-District in the Bahamas House of Assembly, gained an important
step up for labour when he succeeded in getting the House to pass
a Bill fixing the minimum wage in the Bahamas at $1 a day!

Now Haiti's 21-year-old "President for Life", Jean-Claude
(Baby Doc) Duvalier seems to be following the same path taken
to build a booming economy in the Bahamas.
In his article Alphonse Max tells how Baby Doc has loosened
the rigid authoritarian rule exercised by his father Francois (Papa
Doc) Duvalier who died in 1971.
"The feared Tonton Macoutes, Papa Doc's personal elite force
of gangsters, which numbered around 30,000 men, has been
greatly reduced and has lost most of its influence.
"Baby Doc is trying to bring better health and education as
well as some comforts to his five million countrymen. One of his

HAVE THE


BRITISH





DOWN AN


ANCESTRAL TREASURE?


By ALLAN HALL
MUCH WAS MADE about Sir
Alec Douglas-Home being
the 14th Earl of Home:
much was thrown back
about the 14th Mr. Wilson:
but according to a family
pedigree that goes back to
King Henry VIII, British
assuredly found in the Prime
Minister a 14th Mr. Heath.
Had Edward Heath's
background become known
before the recent General
Election, who knows what
effect it might have had on
the fortunes of the
Conservative party.
This hitherto unsuspected
pedigree has been
painstakingly traced by one
of Britain's leading
genealogists, Hugh Peskett.
He lives in Exeter and may
be regarded as the West
Country expert. It delighted
him that the Heath family
turned out to derive from
the West Country. His initial
inquiries were only
light-hearted. He just
wondered if there might by
any chance, be a 14th Mr.
Heath.
"They turned out to be an
awfully dreary family,
really," he said, "but I
enjoyed tracing them back."
Peskett used to be a farmer and
said of his changed
occupation: "Farming's a
matter of breeding. Cows
and Prime Ministers both
need pedigree."
Peskett, who has traced his
own family back to the reign
of_ Edward IIl, has
identified certain Heaths in
Blackawton, South Devon,
in the 14th century. The
first Heath to appear as a
tenant was newly arrived in
1524 and is almost certainly
the father (although he is
not entirely established) of
the John Heath with whom
the definite ancestry starts
(piquantly 14 Heaths back).
FARMERS
Not much is known about the
family, but their farm had
about 32 acres of arable


land, and when John Heath's
grandson Richard was
assessed for rates in 1597, he
had to pay two bushels of
oats, one bushel of wheat,
and half a bushel of barley:
or in the unlikely event of
his having ready cash, $1.75.
In addition to the court rolls
preserved by the monks and
the lay landlords who
followed them our
knowledge of the Heaths
comes from the parish
registers, which start in
1538. This is the date where.
all parish registers are
supposed to start, but acci-
dent and neglect over the
years have resulted in many
being lost. In fact the
Blackawton registers,
although they start in 1538,
have been partly eaten by
rats, but luckily they ate the
back pages of the register, all
burials, rather than the
front. It means that the
pedigree lacks some dates of
death, but if the rats had
eaten the front pages
instead, two or three
generations of the pedigree
would have been unknown.
The length of a pedigree often
hangs upon hazards like this,
more than upon wealth or
status.
The Heath family sometimes
produced between eight and
ten children per generation,
meaning more mouths than
a small farm could support,
and younger sons had to
leave home. Some were no
more than labourers in the
locality; others took farms
in nearby parishes, or found
work in the wool industry.
With Dartmouth nearby,
then a major port of Europe,
it is not surprising that
branches of the family
turned up there. The full
pedigree (with 143 names)
shows two brothers who
prospered as sailmakers
there, although another
brother died a poor
labourer.
Others were sailors, ships'


first moves was to encourage foreign investment which is now
pouring into Haiti at the rate of $80 million to $100 million a
year, attracted in part by recent tax exemptions and by the low
cost of labour. Many factories import all raw materials and export
the finished product."
One of th, most interesting exports of Haiti, Alphonse Max
reports, "are baseballs hand-swen by Haitian workmen who boast
that they are the only people who still practise this art. In one
plant 3.7 million baseballs are stitched every year for export to
the U.S."
The article goes on to tell how the republic's tourist business is
growing under Baby Doc's liberal regime ... and the remarkable
feat he has performed by surviving more than two years by
weathering all political storms.
'Simply surviving the intrigues within the Duvalier clan itself
has been an accomplishment of note. Political stability, of course,
is the basis for economic growth," the article points out.

The article is full of interesting material that holds out great
hope for Haiti in the future.
In his summing up Alphonse Max wrote: "We can say that
after many years of oppression and economic stagnation there
appears to be hope for Haiti, though not immediate spectacular
success.
"Already the middle classes, while admittedly small, are better
off than before. Small European cars can be seen on badly paved
streets and dirt roads; the telephone network has been
modernized and expanded, a new electric plant is ensuring a
continuous supply of current to an ever increasing number of
homes.
"But with economic expansion comes rising expectation from
the masses, and one must hope that this will not mean the end of
the unspoilt, happy-go-lucky spirit of the Haitian people."

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: British islands in-this hemisphere
must realize from the experience of the people of Grenada that
Britain is now determined to shed all its colonial ties on its entry
into the European Common Market. As I have said repeatedly in
this column in recent years, the British Commonwealth of
Nations is today little more than a name.
Several islands in this hemisphere realize that their British
connection gives them an atmosphere of stability that inspires
confidence, both at home and abroad. The Union Jack still
represents "British Justice" in the eyes of the world.
But these islands must now realize that, on the slightest excuse,
Britain will launch them on their own.
The Turks and Caicos Islands recognize this fact. The people
of these islands also have enough sense to know that no small
territory can hope to survive in the present-day
upside-down-world unless it is associated with a large state with
muscle in its arms.
A recent news despatch from Ottawa, Canada reports that the
Turks and Caicos Islands are now sounding out the possibility of
becoming a part of Canada.
Liam Maguire, a member of the island's Tourist Board and part
of a delegation that visited Canada recently, is reported as saying
that they are not interested in a suggestion from Britain that the
30 to 40 islands in this group become "a parish of Jamaica or an
Out Island in the Bahamas."
They are wise in making this decision. They will be fortunate if
they are able to forge a close link with Canada which is still
British in spirit.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Live and think: SAMUEL LOVER


carpenters, and fishermen.
One intriguing item: a Robert
Heath was reported in the
press as having caught a
merman off the Devon coast
in 1938. One might have
wished instead for a
mermaid,. who would have
made an interesting addition
to the family tree.
The first of the Devonshire
Heaths to gain prominence
was from a branch who
settled in Exeter. Benjamin
Heath inherited $75,000
which his father had made in
the woollen trade in 1729.
Two sons became a unique
pair, since one was
headmaster of Eton, the
other of Harrow.
The account books kept by the
Blackawton overseers of the
noor have survived, and
show just how benovelently
the system worked. John
Heath, father of John the
Tailor. appears as receiving
his dinners until his death in
1773, when the overseers
paid for his funeral: S1 for
the coffin, 35 cents for the
minister, 12 cents for the
sexton to dig his grave, and
15 cents for beer for the
mourners an item which is
hardly in the Dickensian
image of the poor laws.

Richard, born 1797, is the one
to note. He joined the Coast
Guard service as boatman,
and was posted in 1831 to
the new Coast Guard station
at St. Nicholas near
Ramsgate in Kent, and
broadly speaking that is
where they stayed.
It is difficult to draw any
political inferences from the
Heath ancestry; it is just a
little wry that the leader of
the Labour Party, Harold
Wilson, descends from a line
of minor capitalists in
ironical contrast to the
recipients of parish relief
in the Conservative 'leader's
.pedigree.

Rules of the Road
When meeting head on
each vessel steers to the
right (starboard) and
passes port to port.

converging on a collision
course, the vessel to the
right (starboard) has the
right-of-way. The other
boat should slow down DANMER
and pass astern. ONE
When overtaking, boat in
rear assumes all
responsibility and passes
either side only when the
way is clear. If lead boat
thinks it is unsafe to pass, -'
he will give the danger 4.-
signal, 5 short blasts on
whistle or horn.
Sailing vessels under sail alone and fishing vessels have
the right-of-way under all conditions except when
passing.Last word: Don't insist on the right-of-way
if a collision is possible. It's better to avoid a collision
than to sink knowing you were right.

is sy n onymous with
photography in the Bahamas.
Mr. Stanley Toogood,
A.R.P.S.. has been plying his
art in the Bahamas since 1934
when, as a seventeen-year-old
youth, he sailed into Nassau
Harbour on an assignment for
the prestigious National
Geographic magazine
For, like all true artists the
young Stanley was a free spirit.
liaterial security played little
,r no part in his career plans.


tie wanted to travel and said
that photography and writing
seemed to be the "thing that
opened the door to travelling".
As a 17-year-old approach-
ing Nassau from the Harbour
Stanley said "This is the place
for me."
Now, forty years and a wife
and four children later, Stanley
is still sure that "this is the
place for me" in spite of the
fact that his freelance
photography has carreid him to
52 countries during the former
"off seasons" in Nassau.

always been a freelancer.
Reason: "I had a lot more time
to do a lot more art
photography."
He soon dropped writing to
concentrate exclusively on
photography.
EXCITING
"I find photography a lot
more exciting". he tole me.
It was in the early days in
Nassau that he was awarded
the Associateship of the Royal
Photographic Society (Thus
the A.R.P S. after his name).
He was the youngest Associate
at the time.
He took photographs of old
schooners and illustrated
sponging articles. The
particular series that won him
the Associate membership was
of the locally built 40-foot
ketch Fj aJy" (Named
after a South Sea Island
Princess in Herman Melville's
"Typee".)
Another famous photograph
of Mr. Toogood's is of the
Motor Sailer "Manawanui"
owned and sailed by
''International FilmI
Productions" and used on
South Pacific motion picture
assignment from 1956 7.
This was part or a series of
travel motion pictures that
Toogoods did for Pan
American Airways. It carried
Stanley to England. Central
America, the South Pacific,
Australia and New Zealand.
Under the old Development
Board Stanley did a lot of
promotional photographs for
his beloved adopted country.
FOR QUEEN
Being an artist rather than a
promotional man Stanley
Toogood has no portfolios of
his work to offer. His
photographs of the Royal Visit
(1966) were published in a
paper back book and a number
of these photographs the
Queen ordered personally.
You might not be able to get
Cecil Beaton to take your
photograph but you can get
Stanley Toogood to.
Toogood's Studio is situated
in a 140-year-old three-storey
Bahamian building on East Bay
overlooking the Harbour and
Paradise Island.
It is painted, of course,
Bahamian pink and there are

SON ANDY
Stanley is followed both in
his love of photography and
affinity with things old and
Bahamian by his 22-year-old
son,Andy, to whom Stanlex is
gradually handing over the
business, remaining himself to
advise the help.
In fact the new Photo Fun

This opens to-morrow.
This article is actually
supposed to be about the

However, the tradition that
Andy is following is deserving.

DELIGHTFUL
Photo Fun House is a
delightful little nursery with

called Photo Fun House.
Readers will recall the recent

A RIXI HAND


ALTHOUGH opinions are
divided about who is the
greatest bridge player in the
world, there is surprising
unanimity about who is the
greatest woman player. For
nearly twenty years now, a
huge majority will have
unhesitatingly said, "Rixi
Marcus".
Mrs. Marcus was born and
learned her bridge, in Austria,
and in the 1930's there were
some very distinguished players
from whom to learn. She fled
her country to escape a
repressive regime, and during
her years in England, she
developed her game to the
point where she has become an
automatic choice for any
international women's event.
A few years back she wrote
a book, whose title embodies
the Rixi bridge philosophy, it is
called "Bid Boldly, Play
Safe." This epitomises her
approach to the game; she will


take chances in the bidding
which many men would blanch
to contemplate, and yet she
continues to vin match after
match. But in the play of the
hand, she is as conservative as
it is possible to be. She will
give long and careful thought to
even the simplest contract, just
to be sure that what she
proposes to do is the safest
way to land her contract.
In a recent rubber in Nassau
in which I took part, a hand
came up which would have
delighted Mrs. Marcus. Had she
been sitting behind the South
player, she would have nodded
at his adventurous bidding, but
when the time came to play
the hand, she would have
frowned at this one little lapse,
which in the result, threw
the contract away.
It so happened that on this
occasion I sat in the North
seat, and at Game All, I held

C 1974 y ChIlcag Triben-N. Y. News Syn,., Jic.
DEAR ABBY: My husband is a very successful and
highly respected businessman. We have two sons who are
planning to follow in their father's footsteps. The problem:
Our name.
It has been in the newspapers often over the years
because someone with the same name as ours has been
involved in some terrible scandals. In fact he was found
guilty of a crime and served time in a federal penitentiary.
Wherever we go we are asked if we are related to this
infamous character, because he has a brother who is in the
same business as my husband.
We say no, which is true, but it still bothers us. At this
stage of my husband's life, he doesn't want to change his
name. But what do you think about our sons changing
theirs? They love their father and wouldn't want to hurt
him, but their lives would be much less complicated if they
didn't have to explain that they are NOT related to "so-
and-so." [And how about people who think we are--but
never ask?] VICTIMIZED IN N.Y.
DEAR VICTIMIZED: The unfortunate coincidence of
having the same name as one who has sullied it is a widely
shared experience. However, it carries no real stigma,
because intelligent, fair-minded people judge a man by his
own performance. And those who don't, deserve to be ig-
nored.
DEAR ABBY: I am 26, not bad looking, have a college
degree, and a very good job. However, I have a serious
problem. Due to an accident, I have trouble controlling my
bladder. During the daytime I control it by going to the
restroom often, but I cannot control it at night.
Because of my bed-wetting, I probably never will mar-
ry unless I find a girl who has the same problem. It isn't
easy to find such a girl because she probably would be too
embarrassed to admit it.
How can I meet girls about my age who also wet the
bed? If they wrote to you, we could correspond. I promise
not to rush into marriage; I would be very cautious and be
sure we loved each other first. Thank you.
WANTS TO MARRY
DEAR WANTS: Instead of looking for a girl with the
same problem, look for a girl who qualifies in every other
way, then deal with the problem later. A possible solution
is the "wet alarm," which awakens you during the night
and helps you to keep dry. Another, twin beds.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 16-year-old girl who is considered
quite popular. [I am not bragging, but people tell me I am
very pretty, and I know I have a good figure.]
My problem is that I don't want to damage my reputa-
tion which is okay, but it's getting tougher to keep it that
way. You see, when a fellow takes me to a show or some
place nice and spends his hard-earned money on me, I feel
that I can't turn him down when he wants to park and
make out.
I don't go too far, Abby, but afterwards I feel so cheap.
Is this wrong when I know when to stop? CANDY
DEAR CANDY: When a fellow asks you out, all he is
entitled to is your company. And unless you want to risk
your hard-earned reputation, don't feel obligated to give a
fellow his hard-earned money's worth. YOU may know

.- CARROLL RIGHTER'S


kvCHOROSCOPE
from the Cwrroll Rihter Institute

/ GENERAL TENDENCIES: Don't take chances
with your reputation, or seek favors, or make
credit expansion in a.m. By afternoon, you can get much of
value done and can extend activities in new, more interesting
directions.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) If you compliment those
whose experience is quite different from yours, you learn
much. Use intuition more.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Handle important matters
with wisdom, particularly governmental ones Be tactful
handling a personal friend. Show others how much you like
them.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Reach better understanding
with associates for greater mutual profits. Handle that civic
matter quickly and well, or you get into trouble.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Carry through
with promises made. Buy the new garments that will suit you
admirably. Stay within budget, though
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Try to please romantic tie more,
and add to personal happiness. Take no chances with one who
is a hypocrite.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Make home more charming,
restful. Avoid clutter. Be sure your choice of colors is right
Don't be garrulous tonight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Be direct in stating your true
position to regular contacts for right results now. Reach better
understanding. Find more modern methods.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Being most direct after
lunch with connections who have anything to do with your
property and possessions gets you fine results now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Morning is best time
to analyze what is going on and then to take the right steps
toward gaining goals Plan pleasures.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22 to Jan 20) Tap your subconscious
and find the ideal answers to personal problems. Come to a
better understanding with romantic tie.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Don't waste any time
improving relations with others and get better results in the
future. Repay social debts; show appreciation of past favors
PISCES (Feb 20 to Mar. 20) Plan early how to handle that
career matter and a most unusual solution is reached Make
your life more interesting with mate
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY. he or she can
easily handle emergencies from earliest days, and this is fine
since the whole life can be made safe and secure. Teach early
to have more patience since your child could miss out on the
big success possible by being too impulsive. Do nothing that
could make your youngster feel inadequate. Give the
encouragement needed here. Religious training early, also.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

" It' not my box, Rupert." Agy grins as he
makes ready for another spin. "I'd be silly
if I tried to carry it while I was on these skis,
wouldn't I? Cheerio I" With that he is away,
mvwiting aoro a the crisp snow. Rupert is
left to puzzle over the mysterious box. "Whose
man It be?" he wonders. And as he takes
off the fid he exclaims : Ooo, it's filled with


1pl 4-


crackers! They're rather like the ones we
have at Christmas." There is nobody around
to claim the box, so Rupert takes it with him.
" ril ask my other pals k they know anything
about it," he decides catching sight of distant
fgures beside a snowman.

RIGHT HANDER Henry Williams is out to
repeat his 20-game winning stint this season
and not even Del Jane Saints were able to stop
him last night.
Picking up his third win in as many starts,
Williams last night hurled seven strong innings
to strike out six and scattered six hits.
On offence, the bats of second baseman
Lorenzo Lockhart and first baseman Colin
Thompson each rallied for two hits and two

"It was pretty rugged tonight seeing that it
was a bit cold and I couldn't really get loose,"
Henry said savouring applause from the fans.
"Del Jane, they played good baseball and I
think they are going to be good competitors
for the rest of the season."
The Saints, with Kirk Smith on the mound,

before the brewers exploded for four winning
runs in the bottom of that phase.


Williams nevertheless was confident
throughout and overlived the crucial moments
of the game. "Definitely I'm not losing any

the reason for that is that at
the head of our school

concerned is an Englishman
(Mr. Keith Parker) who knows
absolutely nothing about
baseball and therefore would
not try and push the game.
"The only programme for
baseball in the country is that

said. Should there had been an

Mr. Butler pointed out that
