British

Airways

takes off
THE BIGGEST airline
merger in history becomes
legally effective next week.
On April 1, BOAC (British
Overseas Airways Corp.) and
BEA (British European
Airways) will become simply
British Airways.
The UK's two major
national carriers have been
using "British Airways' as a
trading name alongside the
familiar BOAC and BEA
names since it was adopted
14 months ago following the
decision to merge.
Now, on the 50th
anniversary of the formation
of the original parent
company Imperial Airways,
the name change becomes
official and the former BOAC
and BEA are legally dissolved.
British civil aviation began
in 1919 and a series of
mergers in 1924 produced
Imperial Airways. Another
series of mergers led to BOAC
being formed in 1940 and
after the second world war
BEA was formed to run UK
domestic and European
operations.
The merger to create a
single British Airways makes
the UK airline one of the
world's largest, with a fleet of
220 aircraft serving nearly
200 destinations in almost 90
countries over a route
network of half a million
miles.
British Airways with
58,000 employees worldwide,
has assets worth one and a
quarter billion dollars and last
year flew more than 16
million passengers.
The airline serves the
Bahamas with 5 non-stop 707
flights each week from
London to Nassau, two VC10
flights each week connect
Freeport with London,
Bermuda and Panama City.
British Airways also serves
Jamaica with five flights a
week.


complicated by demands from
the Airline Pilots Association
for wage increases.
Following five months of
negotiations, the pilots filed
notice of a dispute with
Bahamasair on March 18. On
March 20 they met with
Labour Minister Clifford
Darling to appraise him of the
position.
Yesterday the pilots again
me t with Bahainasair
management, but reportedly
got nowhere in the talks.
Acting general manager Eddie
Albury and Mr. Murray Law,
formerly Air C('anada general
manager in Nassau, were
negotiating for management.
The pilots will meet with
Labour Minister tDarling 10.30
amn tomr'orros .' which time
they expect to tell him that no
progress has been made.
S We are being told by
management that the company
is just about broke and so we
cannot expect any increases," a
source said.

BaTelCo to cut links with Public Services Union


f o r e f r o n t o f P S U
confrontations with the
Governinment.
In the most recent Labour
problems involving the PSI'
the BaTelCo wage dispute last
summer, the Bael('o branch
of the PSIU in several
demonstrations display I a
degree of solidarity and unity
of purpose seldom seen in
Bahamian industrial relations.
And in PSU elections last
year, the BaTe('o branches
challenge of the existing PSU
leadership was backed by a
number of civil servants from
other departments, indicating,
that dissatisfaction, while
greatest among BaTeICo
workers, was widespread
throughout the public service.
The name of the BaTelCo
branch's proposed new union,
the Communications and
Public Officers Union, is itself
a statement of intent to invite
the membership of public
officials as well as


telecommunications workers.
Sources have told The
Tribune that attorneys for the
BaTelCo unionists on January
31 filed an application with the
Labour Ministry for
registration of the CPOU under
the Industrial Relations Act.
The unionists were recently
growing concerned over the
failure of the Ministry to
respond to the application. But
on Thursday last week, The
Tribune was reliably informed,
the attorneys received from the
Ministry a letter which was
"favourable," requesting minor
amendments and additions to
the union's draft constitution.
The unionists now. it is
understood feel they have
good reason to believe that the
CPOU will be registered as
soon as the constitutional
changes are made.
One reliable source
expressed the hope that
registration could come within
two weeks.


T he beginnings oit
antagonisms between Balcl(o
workers and the cl\il isce i
generally can probamibl\ be
traced to 1%o. hcn thlie
Tele c o m in 11 i c a I tits
Department o the
Government became BalCo.
a public corporation I I hci has
been increasing doubt o\er
whether employees of a public
corporation should be
members of a union of cuiil
servants.
But the recent definite steps
to break BaTelCo away from
the PSU are more directly
attributable to friction
between the leaders of the
branch and the PSL'
administration of president
Thaddeus L. Darling.
Mr. Darling the BaTelCo
workers felt, was, aside from
allegations of inefficiency,
indifferent to the problems of
BaTelCo.
That feeling gained strength
last summer when, the


HileCo w I Irkeis allege; Mr.
)iuing's attitude and lack oft
support weakened the
branch's bargaining position ill

More recent a.iccusat ions
allege that 14 outlstanlding
contract points slated for
renegotiation have not been
discussed because such talks
have to be initiated by the PSU
parent bod\,. and that Mr.
Darling's administration has
failed to act
Commenting on that charge,
Mr. Darling has frankly
conceded that although he has
had no official word he is
aware that the BaTelCo people
are "trying to do their own
thing." iHe told The Tribune he
has not moved for further
negotiations because he feels
the new BaTelCo union would
want to do that itself, when it
is formed and organized.
The decisive factor in the
breakaway move. however, was
probably the conduct of PSU


elections last year.
In the first place, the
elections were held in late
August and September. despite
a PSI constitutional provision
that the\ must be held during
the month of July
The elections, when they
finally occurred came after an
abortive attempt by Mr.
Darling to have the PSU's
constitution amended to
increase officials' tenure of
office from one to three years.
Secondly, it was common
knowledge that BaTelCo
branch chairman Mrs.
Williamae Bridgewater was
considering challenging Mr.
Darling for the presidency of
the PSU, and she was
suspended from the union for a
year on July 26.
She was accused of conduct
"not conducive and in keeping
with the Public Services
Union," and with conduct
"suggesting and confirming
that you regard yourself as


leader of an independent and
autonomous organisation."
A petition for a special
general meeting to hear an
appeal against the suspension
was ignored by PSU officials,
and a directive from Labour
Minister Clifford Darling that
the meeting be held in
compliance with the PSU
constitution was also, in effect,
ignored.
The BaTelCo branch of the
PSU has almost 800 members,
out of the total staff of about
1,100.

Only Bermuda is higher

But while its per capital

the Bahamas also recorded

The average per capital

One factor in the minds of
Labour Government leaders is
that their stance over the rugby
tour could have the effect of
emphasizing to white South
Africans their sense of isolation
in sport.
With a national election due
next month, this might in
the Labour government's view
- induce South Africa's
nationalist rulers to ease up on
their strict policy of enforcing
aparthied. (AP)


BUDGET:

SMOKES

DRINKS

GAS UP

LONDON Britain's new
Labour government announced
a massive foreign loan today to
help pay for a record trade
deficit, and a controversial plan
for a "wealth tax" to
redistribute national income.
Chancellor of the Exchequer
Denis Healey announced the
measures in his first budget
since Labour won office in
elections last month.
Healey said he believed the
foreign currency loan of $2.5
billion, to be repaid over 10
years, is the biggest ever raised
in the international money
markets.
It will be used to help cover
the country's worst trade
deficit ever, nearly $1 billion in
February alone.
The annual wealth tax, a pet
Labour plan to resolve Britain's
economic problems, will be
levied against the rich. Details
will be announced by summer,
IHealey said, and the tax will be
backdated to today.
The Chancellor also
announced a broad series of
sales tax increases on whisky,
cigarettes, gasoline and other
items, plus higher income
taxes. These funds will pay for
government handouts including
higher pensions, more food
subsidies, and a freeze on rent
increases. (AP)

a row


over


a street


EASTWOOD, England -
The town council in D. H.
Lawrence's birthplace is
having a row over a proposal
to name a new street after
Lady Chatterley.
Councillor John Finch
wanted the street in the
Nottinghamshire town called
Chatterley Mews after the
heroine of one of Lawrence's
best-known books, "Lady
Chatterley's Lover."
But the chairman of East-
wood's housing committee,
Margaret Coe. said: "I am not
standing for a name like that.
"Why must the people of
Eastwood always be classed
with this type of filthy
literature? Lawrence was a
great author, but as far as
"Lady Chatterley's Lover" is
concerned, he was a dirty old
man and a peeping Tom."
Miss Coe demands that the
people who will live on the
street a redevelopment area
a few yards from the Lawrence
cottage be given a chance
to choose their own name.
"Lawrence Court would be
far more suitable." she said.
But Finch, chairman of the
development committee.
which will make the final
decision, replied:
"1I would be most happy
with the name Chatterley
Mews because most people
associate Lawrence with Lady
C. But the views of the
residents will be taken into
account." (AP)

Nixon

rapped
WASHINGTON President
Ni,..n's reaction to the lifting
of the Arab oil embargo has
been dangerous, inrealistic and
irresponsible. U.S. Sen. Henry
M. Jackson said today.
Jackson, chairman of the
Senate Interior Committee,
said in a speech prepared for
Senate delivery that Nixon's
statements "destroy public
incentives to cooperate with
conservation measures and
encourage increased con-
sumption.
"Euphoric descriptions of an
increasingly favourable supply
outlook undermine public
compliance with voluntary
conservation programmes," the
Washington State Democrat
added.
The Senator said it is
dangerous to assume the
Middle Eastern nations will not
reimpose the embargo or that
they will produce all the oil the
United States need and can
afford.
"While the lifting of the
Arab embargo promises to ease
the acute petroleum shortages
which the nation has exper-
ienced in recent months,
chronic shortages will persist,"
Jackson said.


Amin killing officers-sources


KAMPALA Reliable
Ugandan sources said that Gen.
Idi Amin's military government
has begun systematic killings of
army officers believed involved
in the abortive weekend
uprising.
The capital was back to
normal after the fighting.
Businesses were open and
troops were back in their
barracks. The government
radio ignored the revolt.
The sources said they did
not know how many officers
were being killed and that none

of the executions had been
personally witnessed.
But they said contacts with
Ugandans close to Amin's
regime convinced them that
reports of the deaths
circulating in Kampala were
true.
Western and African
observers say tribal massacres
and secret assassinations have
taken the lives of up to 90,000
possible opponents of Amin
during the last three years.
The Ugandan sources said
those being killed were
Lugbaras members of a tribe
that had formerly been among
Amin's strongest supporters
and Christians.
Amin, a Moslem, has
gradually removed Christians
from high civilianan and military
posts and has cultivated
economic and military ties
with Arab states.
Recent estimates put the
proportion of Moslems among
the 100 million Ugandans at
less than 10 per cent.
Christians numbered more than


50 per cent.
The Ugandan sources also
said Amin may have known in
advance that tank and
machine-gun fighting was going
to occur in military units
around Kampala over the
weekend. They suggested that
he may eveii have provoked the
outbreak among dissident
troops as an opportunity to
eliminate them.
Sources offered this scenario:
Lugbaras, West Nile
neighbours of Amin's Kakwa
tribe in northwestern Uganda,
played a big role in helping him
stay in power after he ousted
former President Milton Obote
in January 1971. Amin
rewarded Lugbaras by placing
2.000 in his 15,000-man army
and giving them other key
positions.
Eventually, young, Christian
Lugbara officers became
restive, and the general
suspected they were plotting
against him. (AP)


LONDON Britain has
formally applied to the
Br zilian government for the
extradition of train robber
Ronald Biggs, the Foreign
Office announced today.
A spokesman said the
British authorities were still
awaiting the Brazilians reply.
Biggs, the last of the gang
that held up and robbed a
British mail train in 1963, is
in Brazilian custody.
He is being held
prisoner at a two-storey
prison building in Brazilia.
The Brazilian Government
offered England 90 days to
request the extradition of
Biggs on the basis of
"reciprocity" because there is
no extradition treaty between
London and Brazilia.
England does not appear
inclined to accept the
reciprocity principle to
obtain Biggs.
Reciprocity means England
would be obliged to give
Brazil similar treatment in the
case of a fugitive from
Brazilian justice located in
England. This could the
'oretically affect eventual
political refugees.
But London -whose
handling of the case angered
Brazilian officials at the start

Biggs is writing his lite

I AM sure readers of this column realize that I aim a great
admirer of the writings of Ilelen Keller. 1 particularly like the
thought behind her line: "Be not dismayed: in the future lies the
Promised Land" often use it ais "A Thought For Today" in this
column.
This remarkable woman died about two years ago. I knew that
she was recognized is une of the most brilliant minds of the
Lenturv. But I knew ::. i0 1,. more.
And so I was thrilled when 1 saw that the story of her life was
being staged in Ia fV piogranmme last night under the title "The

I did nut know what to expect and what I saw wasn't what I
expected.
I knew, of course, tit h lelen Keller suffered an illness as an
infant in the .. ii. When shte recovered her mother discovered to
her lontro thl'I she wa.is deaf and blind ... and, of course, this
meant that she would also be dumb.
As the child started lo, grow up she became completely
uncontrollable Heri parents employed a young governess to look
after her
But she became so violently uncontrollable that her parents
first considered scnsdndi her to a home for defective children.
And, as time passed ind her behaviour became worse, they even

L'p to the time of her death she frequently wrote me little

She wrtec e me such a letter on February 11, 1969 .. five days

EDITOR, The Tribune,
Please allow me space in
your valuable column to
express some of my views. For
too long Bahamians have been
content to sit around
complacently and let the world
go by. Much has been said
about Nationhood and Nation
Building in the last few
months, but what are the
benefits for the average man. I
say none. as far as I am
concerned, since we. the
Bahamas, have attained
independence economically we


have regressed. I think that it is
high time for the newly rich
Bahamians to invest and
diversify the economy. For
unless Bahamians get in the
mainstream of the economy,
the foreign investor will
continue his monopolistic and
exploitative trends.
Figuratively speaking I
would say that about ninety
percent of all the businesses in


the Bahamas are foreign owned
in terms of the dollar value.
Yet Bahamians that are truly
concerned and want to
contribute to the development
of the Bahamas and his fellow
Bahamians in this democratic
society will find himself stifled.
I find this attitude not only
m.irn .p, li-ti and exploitative
but also repressive. Now is the
time for all men who are truly


concerned about this new
nation to speak iup on th.'se
injustices and endeavour to
correct these wrong doings.
Furthermore. I feel that it is
imperative for Governnment to
assist Bahamians in an\ sound
business venture o that we call
truly say Forward. Onward,
Upward together.

EDITOR, The Tribune,
Kindly allow me a little
space in your valuable
newspaper to bring to the
attention of the proper
authorities the deplorable
service and conditions at Cat
Island airport.
I was travelling from CAt
Island to Nassau on March
16th. When I purchased my
ticket the agent informed me
to be at the airport at 10 a.m.
Having arrived at the


airport 1 discovered that there
was no water for drinking and
also the toilets were not
working.
This resulted in much
hardship not only for myself
but for the mother and
children travelling on the
same flight.
The airport attendant
displayed a very callous
attitude toward the
passengers which added to
the hardships. Finally at


man..


Here is her letter:
Nassau. Bahanias
February 11, 1969
My dear Etienne,
On New Year's Eve a friend gave me a copy of "Not Growing
Old" to read. I asked her if I could have it as I found it so
comforting.
Later on I telephoned and asked if she could spare me two
more copies of it as I wanted one for you and one to send to
Evelyn.
Now that you are bordering on your three-score-and-ten years,
I am hoping that you will find the same inspiration in the verses
that I did.
I took them in my bag to hospital with nme. Before I went in
for the operation I wrote your names on them to make sure they
would be delivered anyway.
I hope you and Marie may be spared man\ more happy and
healthy years together.
Yours lovingly.
Naomi
(On the front of the cops she sent me was written: "'For
Etienne ....N.")

Here is John L. Roberts' poem "Not Growing Old":
"They say that I am growing old,"
I've heard them tell it times untold,
In language plain and bold
But I'm not growing old.
This frail old shell in which I dwell
Is growing old, I know full well
But I am not the shell.


What if my hair is turning grey'?
Grey hairs are honourable, they say,
What if my eyesight's growing dim?
I still can see to follow Him
Who sacrificed His life for me.
Upon the Cross of Calvary.

What should I care if Time's old plough
Has left its furrows on my brow'
Another house, not made with hand,
Awaits me in the Glory Land.

What though I falter in my walk'?
What though my tongue refuses to talk?
I still can tread the Narrow Way.
I still can watch, and praise and pray.

My hearing may not be as keen
As in the past it may have been
Still I can hear my Saviour say
In whispers soft. "This is the way".

The outward man, do what I can
To lengthen out this life's short span,
Shall perish, and return to dust,
As czery thing in nature must.
The inward man, the scriptures say.
Is growing stronger every day.

Then how can I be growing old
When safe within my Saviour's fold?
We're long my soul shall fly away,
And leave this tenement of clay,
This robe of flesh I'll drop and rise
To seize the "everlasting prize".
I'll meet you on the Streets of Gold,
And prove that I'm not growing old.


Death has no fear for anyone with this kind of faith. Nor can
life produce any problems to disturb the even tenor of his ways.

May I take just a couple of lines to say a simple thanks to those
friends who sent me messages of sympathy and arranged to
have Masses said for the repose of the soul of my sister Evelyn
who died in New York a few weeks ago. I am now the last of my
father's family by his first marriage.
When my half-brother Eugene, the only issue from my father's
second marriage, phoned to tell me about Evelyn's death, he said
simply: "We are going one by one."
How true. There are very few of my childhood friends left.
Each of us in God's own good time will be given the opportunity
to face the great adventure.
One day my name will be called out too. There is nothing to
fear in death. It is the final triumph of life as we take the single
step into a more glorious life beyond the grave.

THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
The worst sorrows in life are not in its losses and misfortunes,
but its fears: A. C. BROWN

0 death, where is thy sting? 0 grave, where is thy victory?
The sting of death is sin: and the strength of sin is the law.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our
Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye
know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Christians and



their obligation



to offer hope


IT IS the obligation of all
those who profess the Christian
faith to offer hope to the
handicapped through service,
kindness and generosity, the
Rev. Joseph J. Perna of the
Bahamas Council for the
Handicapped said today.
The Council is holding
"Public Awarencess Week" to
promote rehabilitation of the
handicapped throughout the
Bahamas.
We who have heard the
Gospel over the years
know that the three major
virtues which stand out as the
hallmark of all christians must
be: faith, hope and charity. St.
Paul in one of his letters to the
early Christians at Corinth
wrote most beautifully a hymn
to the virtue of Charity,
pointing out that when all had
passed away that faith, hope
and charity would perdure, and
that charity was the greatest of
the three.
This article is intended to
dwell on that virtue called
hope which is sandwiched in
between our faith and charity.
And this virtue of hope is a
most important one in the
living out of the Christian life
on a daily basis. It is
important, because in our love
for our neighbour, we are in a
position of offer hope. We are
bound to give help and hope to
those around us who are trying
to make it, but who cannot
make it on their own. They
need our hands outstretched to
them in all areas of their lives,
because in one way or another,
they have some handicap. In
reaching out to them, however,
we must preserve their
self-dignity not making them
beholden to us for our offer of
living assistance.
This article then is a
reminder to all of us who
profess the Christian faith, that
it is our obligation to offer
hope to those who have not
been blessed as abundantly as
we have been. And we can
offer hope to handicapped
people in many ways.
The first and foremost way
is the way of Christ: by being
of service to them. For if
Christ can bhe described as
iii. tii : f he must always be
described as being a man for
others. We. his disciples and
followers, must of course also
see ourselves as being called to
be men for others. And in


Watch your diet


By Alton L. Blakeslee
AP Science Editor
ST. .A ( L' l11N FLA.
Changing the kinds of food
you eat might well protect you
against cancer of the stomach
and intestines and other sites, a
cancer researcher said Monday.
In general, the changes
follow the "prudent diet" recom-
mended by heart special -
ist to reduce the risk of having
heart attacks. Thus it would be
a double duty diet, to resist
caRecers as well as heart attacks.
T'he diet calls for consuming
fewer total calories from fats,
and less 'rom saturated or
"-'hard" fats, less red meat, less
whole milk and fewer eggs than
the average American usually
eats
The recommendation comes
irotm Dr. Ernest L. Wynder,
President of the American
IHealth Foundation of New
York. lie was one of the early
researchers who associated
cigarette smoking with cancer.
Dr Wonder cited animal and
laboratory studies comparing
the diets of people in different
countries with the incidences
of cancer of the stomach,


colon and rectum. About
100,000 Americans came down
with these types of cancer
annually.
Diet appears to be an
important factor in many
cancers, he said. Dr. Wynder
said as much as 50 per cent of
all kinds of cancer in women
and 30 per cent in men may be
related to food intake.
Speaking to an American
cancer society meeting of
science writers, Dr. Wynder
suggested the following diet
formula as the most promising
method of reducing the risk of
intestinal cancer:
cut total calories from fats
down to about 35 per cent or
lower as agaisnt the present
norm of 45 per cent.
of all calories coming
from fats, take half of them
from poly-unsaturated fats like
those from vegetable oils
compared to saturated fats in
meats or other products.
eat red meat, much of
which tends to be larded with
fat, only three to four times a
week.
eat more fish.
drink skim milk rather

parti;,lar others who find
themselves handicapped in one
way or another. If we reach
out to them, then they can
have hope real Christian
hope and they will answer
when we ask them how they
are: "I am trying to make it,
and I am going to make it
because your help has given me
hope."
This demands of the
Christian, real kindness, and of
all of the good works open to
us as Christians, the most
effective one is offering people
hope through our kindness and
generosity.
As for Kindness: it is one of
God's best gifts to the world,
for it drives gloom and
darkness from souls and puts
hope into fainting hearts.
Kindness sweetens sorrow and
lessens pain. Kindness discovers
unsuspected beauties of human
character, and it calls forth a
response from all that is best in
our souls.
Kindness purifies, glorifies,
ennobles all that it touches: it
opens the flood-gates of
children' laughter.
Kindness gathers the tears of
repentant love.
Kindness lightens the burden
of weariness.
Kindness stops the torrent
of angry passions, and it takes
the sting from failure.
Kindness kindles courageous
ambition in the face of being
handicapped. Kindness can lift
up those who have been less
fortunate than we in their
handicapped state.
Kindness walks in the ways
of Jesus Christ, Our Saviour.
All Christians ought to aim at
being apostles of kindness,
especially with regard to those
less fortunate than we are and
in particular the handicapped.
Kindness should be viewed by
all Christians as an exalted
apostolate, for it is sublime
and it is truly Christ-like
Be another Christ: be a man
for others! In our striving to be
another Christ and a man for
others by being of service to
the handicapped in our
community. we can be
reasonably certain that the
handicapped will always be
able to answer us when we ask
how they are doing:
"Man, I am trvime in, make
it, and I amn ukin e u. bkciseit c

Noochers provoke


crisis


By Abigail Van Buren
DEAR ABBY: I play cards with several different groups
of women. Everyone who owns a car leaves it home, and I
always seem to be the one who has to pick up three or four
women and drive them home. With the energy crisis, I feel
this is unfair.
How about a comment on transportation moochers?
CONSTANT READER
DEAR CONSTANT: Next time you have all the moochers
in your car. try this: "Girls, this is your chauffeur speak-
ing. Because of the energy crisis, we must all take turns
driving. We'll start alphabetically. Mrs. Applebaum, you're
first!."
DEAR ABBY: It's high tunime you published something in
defense of smokers.
I am a smoker and I enjoy smoking. Smoking has long
been one of life's pleasures, and to deny it is absurd.
In order to survive in the world today, one must learn
how to give and take, and for a nonsmoker to make a
smoker uncomfortable by depriving him of his smoking
pleasure is just as selfish as it is for a smoker to make" a
nonsmoker uncomfortable by smoking in his presence.
If I sense that someone really objects to my smoking, I
take myself and my cigaret into another room. I think the
nonsmoker should have the same consideration for the
smoker, and if the smoke -"t r'- him, HE should move.
There should be a 50-50 compromise. The smokers have
been made to feel guilty long enough, and it's time the
nonsmokers learned to cope with a smoke-filled society His
nonsmoking righteousness makes me just as angry as my
smoke makes him'
SICK OF NOiNSMi KER. IN CINCY
DEAR SICK: There's about as much substance to your
argument as there is in a cloud of smoke. If one deliberate-
ly elects to pollute the air because of a habit he either will
not or cannot control-let HIM move.
DEAR ABBY: My oldest two children attended public
school in West Los Angeles, and also raced home to use the
bathroom because of conditions in the restrooms at school.
"Concerned Parent's" letter, printed Jan. 15, didn't mention
off-limits restrooms in junior high schools due to kutfings,
fires in trashbaskets. and violence. My youngest son attends
a private school and there are no restroom problems, so it
is apparent that the problem can be solved if school admin-
istration wants to solve it,
I suggest that the teachers' restrooms be closed, and that
teachers use the same restrooms students use. The incon-
venience and lack of privacy for teachers would be more
than compensated for by the safer and more sanitary con-
ditions for students. The restroom conditions must be of
great concern to competent teachers
It seems to me that the only question is -are school
restrooms unsafe for teachers?" If so. where does that
leave our children?

TI-L AVIV Two American
astronomers Thursday
announcedd the discovery of
water in the giant Kohoutek
Comet and Israel's Tel Aviv
University said the evidence
from outer space indicated that
fiery-looking comets are really
I'i,,p- of rock coated in ice."
Dr. Susan Wycoff. who
tracked Kohoutek with her
husband Dr. Peter Wehinger
through a telescope in the
Nege\ Desert, said the
discovery "probably means
that there is water in all
c itiieis,


The husband and wife team
said that a spectrogram
photograph taken Jan. 10,
which caught the light from
the speeding Comet and
"spread it out like a
rainbow...was the first
conclusive evidence for water
in a comet."
A Tel Aviv University
spokesman said the comet
discovery and other cosmic
evidence "indicates that the
universe is composed of,
precisely the same elements as
the Earth."
News of the discovery was


delayed until the findings were
verified. Dr. Wyckoff said their
photographic evidence was
examined by Nobel laureate
Gerhard Herzberg at the
National Research Council of
Canada and checked against a
cloudy spectrogram taken by
Dr. George Herbig of the
University of California, and
these two scientists should
share the credit for the
addition to man's store of
knowledge.

CASTRIES, St. Lucia A
general election, described by
Premier John Compton as the
most crucial in the history of
this Windward Island, is being
fought.
The opposition St. Lucia
Labour Party also describes the
election as crucial, but for
different reasons. The SLP says
the progress claimed by
oomp ton declared them
The election campaign was
officially launched in October
at the annual convention of the
ruling United Workers Party
UWP).
Compton declared then
that the race was on and called
for a two-thirds majority in the
ew parliament, Since then.
politicians have been actively
canvassing the electorate.
This will be the second
general election since the
238-square-mile agricultural
island, with a population of
S110.000 became an associated
state in 1967. The first was in
1969,
There is a number of
differences between this year's
election and that of 1969 At
the last election there were 10
electoral districts this time
there are 17. The House of


assembly approved the new
constituency boundaries in
January.
This year. the United'
Workers Party has announced
its intention to contest all 17
seats, while the united front
will fight for one.
So far in the campaign, no
major issues have came up for
discussion. It appears that the
policies of both parties are
similar and the difference
seems over how those policies
should be implemented.


All SLP candidates and top
party officials move with
public address systems
permanently fixed on their
cars.
The party symbol, the star,
is also very prominent on their
cars and t-shirts with the
writing "Vote Labour" and
"Down with Comptonism"
have recently been gone on
sale. The SLP has been holding
public meetings in a" big way,
with as many as four in one
area per night.

New Boston


Whaler stolen


A NEW i3ft. Boston Whaler
and its 40 h.p. Johnson engine
were stolen from the Eastern
Road waterfront home of Mr.
Alexis Nihon after the family
had used it for only four hours.
The boat, stripped of its
engine, battery, anchor and
ropes, was found by Mr. Peter
Bethell drifting in the Fox Hill
Creek area.
Mr. Bethell took the boat's
serial number and through


checking with Maura Lumber
Co. found that Mr. Nihon was
the owner.
A few weeks ago Mr.
Godfrey Kelly, also of the
Eastern Road, had two
Evinrude motors stolen, one 50
h.p. and the other 60 h.p., as
well as his boat's battery,
anchor and ropes. About the
same time Dr. Raymond
Sawyer lost a 25 h.p. Evinrude
and Mr. Peter Christie of the
Eastern Road a 60 h.p. engine.
Mr. Edgar Mulhall, another
Eastern Road resident, had his
25 h.p. Johnson engine stolen
on Friday, March 15, and the
following night Mr. Peter
Graham lost two 25 h.p.
Johnson motors from where
his boat was anchored in Fox
Hill Creek.
Yesterday police confirmed
that at least 10 outboard
motors had been stolen from
the Eastern Road area in the
past three weeks.

Boxing Commission has stood firm on
its decision to use a local referee and
judges.
The last heavyweight title fight to
be postponed was the second
Mohammad Ali-Sonny Liston fight in
1965, when Ali underwent hernia
surgery.
Some observers speculated that an
excuse might be found to cancel
tonight's fight because of the poor
early reception for overseas closed
television.
Video Techniques has the
ancillary right to the fight
and most of the money
would be expected to come
from closed TV to the United
States and 70 other countries.
Sales have been very
disappointing.
The contract for the fight
calls for a $300,000 forfeit if
Foreman does not appear.
Norton's handler has insisted
"Ken will be in the ring
form, regardless."
