Aussie apathy
IF AUSTRALIANS had to
vote on it there is a strong
chance many would choose
against voting in the May 18
general election.
While both Prime Minister
Cough Whitlam and
Opposition leader Bill Sncddcn
are urging electors to "spend
five, minutes for Australia"
thinking about their vole,
many Australians believe the
voting is cumbersome.
In New South Wales state,
for example, one of the ballot
papers is 27 inches wide, 8
inches long and lists 73
candidates Electors must
number each candidate in
order of preference.
A mistake, a duplication or a
blank space makes the vote
void.
The jumbo-size voting paper
is for the Upper House Senate.
A second voting paper is for
the House of Representatives

THE WATERGATE TAPES TRANSCR PTS
The
PRESIDENT Nixon's anger
and contempt flashes out from
the Watergate transcripts.
He displays too compassion
and loyalty toward beleaguered
staff members and such former
close friends as John Mitchell
Here, from the vast volume
are some of the areas covered
DEAN CONFLICTS
Dean told the Watergate
committee that on Sept. 15,
Nixon congratulated him on
doing a good job, "and the
president was pleased that the
case had stopped with l(i
Gordon) Liddy."
The transcript shows Nixon
telling Dean, "the way you
have handled all this seems to
me has been very skillful,
putting your fingers in the
leaks that have sprung here and
sprung there."
Nixon's lawyers said the
congratulations were offered
"in the context not of a
criminal plot to obstruct
justice as Dean alleges," but
rather "in the context of the
politics of the matter, such as
civil suits, counter-suits,
democratic efforts to exploit
Watergate as a political issue
and the like."
Nixon said it was on March
21, 1973, that Dean first told
him of the cover-up, including
the payments of hush money.
Dean testified that after two
meetings with the president on
that date" ,., it was quite clear
that the cover-up as far as the
White House was concerned
was going to continue."
According to the transcript,
Dean told the president early
in the conversation. "I have the
impression that you don't
know everything I know and it
makes it very difficult for you
to make judgements..."
At one point, the President
expressed puzzlement over
why officials of his re-election
committee would become
involved in a burglary to get
information from the
Democrats:
"Why at that point in time I
wonder? I am just trying to
think. We had just finished the
Moscow trip. The Democrats
had just nominated McGovern.
I mean (expletive deleted),
what in hell were these people
doing? I can see their doing it
earlier. I can see the pressures,
but I don't see why all the
pressure was on then."
And, later, after Haldeman
had joined the meeting, this
exchange took place:
Nixon: "... Let's say,
frankly, on the assumption
that, if we continue to cut our
losses, we are not going to win.
But in the end we are going to
be bled to death. And in the
end, it's all going to come out
anyway. Then you get the
worst of both worlds. We are
going to lose and people are
going to ..."
Haldeman: "And look like
dopes."
Nixon: "and in effect, look
like a cover-up. So that we
can't do."
When it was suggested that
some lower-level aides might be
hurt by the Watergate
investigation, Nixon said- "We
don't want to harm the people
either, that is my concern. We
can't harm these young people
(inaudible) They were doing
things for the best interests of
their country that is all."
NIXON ITT
Nixon secretly intervened to
block a Justice Department
antitrust case against Inter-
national Telephone Telegraph
Corp. then forgot his
explanation for it
Telegraph Corp then forgot
his explanation for it
According to the edited
transcript of a meeting
between Nixon and Domestic
adviser John D. Ehrlichman on
April 15 1973 the president
was preparing for a Watergate
discussion with Atty. Gen.
Richard G. Kleindiensi
A year before. Nixon had
abruptly ordered Kleindienst
not to appeal an adverse1 ruling
in a Justice Department
antitrust suit against an ITT
subsidiary.

the compassion
Guttural gurglings
ARCHIVISTS unearthing the Watergate tape transcripis
a few thousand years hence may think 20th century affairs
of state were conducted in broken sentences and guttural
gurglings.
Throughout the 1,308 pages of double-spaced, edited
conversations, the combined effect of persons speaking in
an offhand manner and the limitations of the recording
equipment resulted in exchanges like this:
President Nixon: (inaudible)
John Dean: (inaudible)
Nixon: (inaudible)
Ehrlichman: My thought is ...
Nixon: In other words ...
And this:
Haldeman: He probably didn't to the grand jury,
Ehrlichman: That's right. As far as the quality of the
evidence is concerned ...
(Material deleted) Ehrlichman: well, go back to the ...
Nixon: All right. I only mentioned (unintelligible!
because, let me ... go ahead with your ...
Ehrlichman: Well, all I was going to say is that ...
Nixon: All right, 1 now have evidence that ...
Nixon: I'm not convinced he's guilty but I am convinced
he ought to go before a grand jury.
And this
Nixon: (expletive deleted) (unintelligible)
President Nixon comes across as a man whose favourite
word is "yeah." For variety's sake, he sometimes says
"yep."
And among him and his top associates there was an easy
familiarity that seems to have virtually excluded the use of
"Mr. President."
And despite the advance reports of salty language used
by the president in private conversations, the transcripts
proved to be something of a letdown for aficionados of the
coarse and scatalogical. Nixon favours remarks like "gosh"
and "I'll be darned" along with "My God," "damn" and
"hell."
Stronger profanity by some of the lesser figures was left
alone, but the exorcisms performed by White House editors
on Nixon's speech leaves unsolved the mustery of just how
rough his language is in private.
A PRESIDENT SPLUTTERS
NIXON greeted discovery of the break-in at the office of
Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist with a hail of unintelligibles
and a deleted expletive.
"What in the world-what in the name of God was
Ehrlichman having something (unintelligible) in the Ellsberg
(unintelligible)," the president sputtered.
Meeting with him March 17. 1973. in the oval office,
former White House counsel John W. Dean III tried to '
explain.
"They were trying to this was part of an operation
that in connection with the Pentagon papers. They were
the whole thing they wanted to get Ellsberg's
psychiatric records for some reason. I don't know."
Nixon: This is the first I ever heard of this. 1, I
(unintelligible) care about Ellsberg was not our problem.
Dean: That's right.
Nixon: (expletive deleted).
Ehrlichman: Well.
Nixon: I am sure it was a
good reason
Ehrlichman: Yeah. We had a
run
Nixon: (unintelligible) we
had a runaway antitrust
division at that point.
Nixon Yeah, and I had been
raising hell with McLaren.
Ehrlichman: That's right.
Nixon: On all this and I said
now this-is a violation of my
policy
Ehrlichman: Not on
Nixon (Unintelligible) A
violation of rules that I had
laid down with McLaren.
Ehrlichman: And I will
testify to my dying day that
our approach to antitrust cases
has (unintelligible) virtually
without variation, on policy
rather than the merits of the
individual case.
Nixon: Wasn't that the case
(unintelligble)''
Ehrlichman: There was one
exception to that, and that was
that Granite City Steel case
where we criticized their
analysis the Council of
Economic Advisers did.
Nixon: Yeah
Ehrlichman: And we went
back on them on the specific
Cate rather than just the
general policy. That was as on
a factual issue.
The special Watergate
prosecutor is investigating
allegations that the White-
House intervened to help ITT
in the antitrust suit because
ITT had agreed to help San
Diego finance the 1972
Re publican national
convention. The White House
has denied the charge.

LONDON The U.S.
dollar moved up stongly in

Labour moves to repeal unions law
LONDON The
Government has embarked on
legislative action to repeal a
controversial industrial
relations law adopted by the
Conservative government to
curb wildcat strikes.
The move came as part of
the recently elected minority
Labour government's pledge to
create a climate in labour
relations that would enable the
labour unions voluntarily to
cooperate in fighting inflation.
Employment Secretary
Michael Foot set May Day,
traditionally celebrated as
labour day throughout the
world, as the deadline for
starting to dismantle the law
Foot plans to complete the
repeal by the end of July and
political observers said it was
most unlikely the government
would call a surprise election
before then in a bid to secure
an absolute majority in the
House of Commons.
The industrial relations act
was passed in the teeth of
furious opposition from
Britain's 10 million labour
union members. The law
imposed compulsory secret
ballots on would-be strikers
and a cooling of period before
strikes could start.
Its most controversial
provision was the industrial
relations court. It has the
power to fine labour unions
and even jail their leaders for
ignoring its rulings The bulk of
Britain's labour unions have
ignored the court and defied its
authority.
The draft law will restore
the labour unions to their
pre-19 71 position. The
compulsory ballot, the
cooling-off period and the
industrial court will all be
abolished. The bill recieved its
first reading in the House of
Commons Tuesday.
The new law, however, will
come too late to intervene in a
long-running fucd between one
of Britain's biggest labour
unions the Engineering
Workers and the Industrial
Court.
The court ordered the union
to pay a 47.000-pound -
$112,800 fine to an
engineering company in
compensation for business lost
during an unauthorized strike.
The labour union had until
Monday midnight to pay the
fine and now faces
sequestration of all its funds.
The union's defiance comes in
spue of an appeal from Foot
for the union to recognize th-
court since the tribunal is
about to be abolished.
However, Foot added, while
it is still in existence it has the
force of law behind it.
The government's plans
came under immediate lire
from the Confederation of
British Industry (CBI) which
said some form of government
control over labour unions was
still needed.
CBI chief Campbell
Adamson said unlimited power
by the unions could bring
damage and harm to the rest of
society.
"They need some control "

NEW DELHI Prime-
Minister Indira Gandhi's
government, in a major
confrontation with the nation's
labour movement, today
arrested .11 least .10 top leaders
of railway unions threatening
to go on strike next week.
The arrests came as the
government warned that a
railway strike, due to begin
May 8, would cripple the
nation as much "as a defeat in
war."

leader died soon after being
taken into custody and some
railwaymcn in the city walked
off lheir jobs in protest.
The government did not
immedfatel) disclose reasons
for the arrests, but it accused
one of the leaders of failing to
negotiate seriously.
The accusation was knelled
against George Fernandes. a
former Socialist member of
Parliament who is heading a
national coordination
commit lee composed of trade
unions that are not associated!:
with the ruling Congress Party3
It appeared that those-
arrested were only from unions
supporting Fernandes. who was
detained in the northern ejij
of Lucknow,
The arrests touched off'ah
uproar in parliament, and
opposition members begin
debating a motion to censure
and bring down Mrs.
Gandhi's government.
There was little chance thai
the motion would pass, since

labour could still hurt the

But he has had to postpone

EDITORIAL
Producing a newspaper
By ETIENNt DUPUCH
IN HIS COLUMN "To the Point" on Saturday, April 20th,
Arthur Foulkes wrote an article which he captioned "!;i A Fool's
Paradise ",
"Newspaper people," Mr. Foulkes wrote, "work under
tremendous pressure. They have to get the facts ... and,
depending on circumstances, check and re-check to make sure ...
write it ... read it ... cut it ... add to it ... put it into type ... read it
again ... compose it in pages... check it again ... then print it.
"All of this is done with the tick lock of the clock sounding
more like clashing symbols relentlessly marking the headlong rush
to that inevitable, immovable, almost Godlike tiling called the
deadline. As this happens day after day and hour after hour it is
little wonder that some journalists get old before their time and
some never see chronological old age.
"No wonder too that, in spite of the precautions, strange
things still happen in a newspaper office. A type-setter omits a
single letter to produce an embarrassing obscenity which nobody
picks up until thousands of papers are off the press.
"A headline gets stuck over an article to which it bears no
relationship.
"A type-setter sticks an V in front of the word xenophobic
since he is almost certain he knows all the words which begin
with "X" and that is not one of them.
"And a tired proof-reader impatiently strikes out the word
'experiential' and writes in 'experimental1,
"Sometimes a whole succession of paragraphs get dropped and
that is exactly what happened to this column last week.
Fortunately the point was not entirely lost and it was to imply
that people are likely to lose some of their cherished rights and
protections unless they are on guard against the first attempts to
erode and diminish them."
In this introduction to his article Mr. Foulkes covered most of
the mistakes that confront the people who are engaged daily in
producing this newspaper for your information ... and, I hope,
guidance and edification.
He overlooked one of the most dangerous and serious mistakes
that sometimes occurs when the News Editor asks the
photographic department for the picture of a person in the day's
news.
ss the News Editor knows the person personally he has to
depend on the intelligence and responsibility of the person in the
photographic department to check his records to make sure he
has the correct picture, especially in a foreign news story when
the news desk is not likely to know the face of the person
concerned.
it has happened that we have published the picture of a
criminal in place of a U.S. Cabinet Minister. And we didn't
discover the mistake until the next day when an American who
knew the faces of the criminal and the Cabinet Minister phoned
to tell us we had made a terrible mistake.
This was a terrible and a frightening mistake, too, which we
hastened to correct.
I am glad Mr. Foulkes has pointed out the problems the
editorial department in a newspaper faces daily.
Hit may help people in the government and some people in
up community who back the government, right or wrong to
imJcistand how irresponsible former Home Affairs Minister
\rihir llanna was in the policy he pursued for years when he
lepcitedly told us to hire a Bahamian, regardless of the fact that
no Bahamian was available who possessed the training and natural
aptitude required by members of staff, right down the line, in the
production of a newspaper.
-A person filling any position of responsibility in a newspaper
office must not only have a fair education ... the person should
iIsd be well read ... should have a sixth sense ... and, most
important of all, a highly developed sense of responsibility which
comes only after years of experience in which the person learns
of the many pitfalls in this business.
You get this paper every day but you have no idea of how it is
produced.
li is like building a house ... with the difference that a building
contractor knows before he lays the comer stone of his building
i civ nail and every oilier piece of material that is to go into the
jot
One of the most exacting jobs in a newspaper is that of the
News Editor. He has to build that "house" every day without
knowing when he goes to his desk in the morning what the day's
n<&s will bring forth.
When he goes to the office he finds hundreds of feet of news
n-ports that have come in on the Teletype machine during the
nighi from the far corners of the earth. A sub-editor quickly
wljisks through this great variety of news with expert eyes. He
may end up without finding anything that he feels Tribune
reajders want or need to know. He may find a few lines. A
paragraph. Or even a column or two.
"foreign news rolls in throughout the night and day. By the
nopn deadline he must have the material he has selected reduced
i > the limited space that is at his disposal.
Throughout the day a battery of telephones are going in the
oftcc and by noon the reporters out on the road ... in the
Legislature, the Courts, on the Police beat ... or just nosing
around looking in odd comers for bits and pieces that might be of
uiltrer.l ... must have their copy in shape.
Jdl this material finally flows across the News Editor's desk.
Ani lie must cut and change it here and there so as to fit into the
spaae available. He doesn't use one half of one per cent of the
material that comes to the office every day.
By I o'clock he sits back in his chair and feels that he can sec
ilij shape of his "house" for the day.
And then the telephone rings. Something big or extraordinary
has happened on the local scene. Or the sub-editor rushes to his
desk with a world shattering story, such as the assassination of
die-President of the U.S.
{ti the space of a few minutes he must pull his "house" down
... ^construct the whole thing ... and still get the paper lo press
on time
Then someone must also check letters for publication which
araloftcn packed with false information, and libellous statements.
| don't think there is any more exacting job in the world than
that of an editor on a newspaper.

?As this happens day after day and hour after hour," wrote
Ml Foulkes. "it is little wonder that some journalists get old
belbre their time and some never see chronological old age."
buring a visit to Australia in I055 I felt that the pressure of
producing a newspaper in that country must be unusually great.
Everywhere, as I travelled across that country with a CPU group.
I met young widows of newspaper editors. One of these young
-
men in particular ahd died at his desk without any previous
warning ol a coronary condition.
You may remember the story I told you some months ago of
what happened to nic when I took over control of this newspaper
at the age of 20 without any qualifications lo fit me for the job.
I made so many mistakes and was fooled so many times by
oeople I trusted that I was on the verge of a nervous
breakdown. My family packed me off to Jamaica for a rest. It was
while I was in Jamaica that I resolved that I must toughen my
mind to the job ... and go through, come hell or high water.
That's why I am still alive at 75, more sure of myself than ever.
I don't know of any journalist certainly not in the Bahamas
- who has had a tougher row tolioe than I.
First of all, I had to learn this job with little help. I learned it
through the process of trial and error. And because we have had a
crusading policy there were always people around who wanted to
destroy us ... and who would deliberatley set pitfalls in our path
to trap us into serious situations.
This is what I meant when I said a journalist must be endowed
with a "sixth sense". He must be able to "smell" trouble when it
presents itself concealed in a carefully cropped "package "
These problems don't apply only to the news and editorial
departments. They apply also to the advertising department
where the Advertising Manager must be a man of solid training
and mature judgment.
More than once as I walked through the Advertising
Department I would hear a clerk at the desk taking an
announcement from a customer.
My trained ears would pick up a word in the conversation. I
would stop and listen. I would then walk over to the clerk and
tell her not to accept the advertisement ... that it was libellous.
The Advertising Department also works under heavy pressure
... and there libel can also occur.
I have written this article to deal with another matter.
There is one section of this newspaper that requires more than
ordinary attention ... and it is this column which is charged with
dynamite almost every day.
This column is not produced under the pressure experienced
on the news desk. An article may not be published for four or
five weeks after I have written it. But still mistakes occur.
Sometimes I pick up an old newspaper a year or two after it
was published and am shocked to find that a silly mistake had
slipped through in spite of all the efforts to make this column not
only fact-perfect but also grammatically correct and word
perfect. My daughter often says the best way to find a mistake is
to wait until after the paper is primed and distributed. Then it
will jump up at you out of the page.
A newspaper man has to be a special kind of animal. He must
be tough in body and in mind ... and he must be surrounded by
tough people.
As a young man I was very fond of a girl. I might have married
her but after seeing how I worked she named me "Cock Sparrow"
and told me I had better look for somebody else. She couldn't
live my kind of life. We are still friends and she tells me that I was
fortunate in my marriage. She never married.
I was actually engaged to another Bahamian girl. She was one
of the gentlest people I have ever known. In this respect, she was
too good for me. But I broke that off because she agreed with
everything I did. That was no good to me in my work. I needed a
woman who was physically strong and tough minded ... and God
finally gave me that woman. She is small, but she is a mighty
battle-axe, my watchdog.
Now I will tell you the reason l am writing this article.
Under the heading "Any Thoughts To Contribute" I wrote an
article in this column on April 16th urging readers of this
newspaper to write letters to its columns. I emphasized how
important it was for the public to express themselves freely in a
newspaper. This. I told them, was the greatest safeguard against
the loss of freedoms in a democracy.
I also urged my readers to criticize nic ... to correct any
mistake I might make. What I meant was mistakes in fact, not
typographical errors and small faults in grammar or construction
because I have learned that these will slip through, however
careful my staff may be
But my friend and old newspaper rival Edwin Brownrigg took
me literally. He went through that article with a fine toolheomb
and discovered three mistakes. He then kindly wrote me a
personal letter not for publication in which he pointed out
dicse mistakes.
"Forgive me please." he wrote. "You are such a fluent writer
in fact. I am envious of your style it's a shame to mar it with
this grammatical error the one referred to in the eighth
paragraph.
"At least you know I am eadingyour editorials."
As a P.S. he added: "I had intended lo make this anonymous,
but on second thoughts I knew that you liked people to sign their
letters."
Thanks Edwin, old boy, I appreciate your frankness and
honesty of purpose.
But it might interest you to know that after receiving your
letter I re-read that article carefully and found six minor mistakes
that did not affect the sense of the article. And that is really all
that matters to me ... that I succeed in getting a point across to
my leaders ... a point thai Mr Foulkes emphasized in his article.
In a marriage ceremony a man and wife are supposed to
become one in body and mind. This is highly important if a
marriage is to endure.
This has certainly happened in the case of my wife and me. In
my work I need a watchdog ... a critic who is well informed and is
interested in my welfare.
And so I decided that my wife must share fully in my life. She
must know everything about me past and present. She must
know how I think. She must know every thing. In short, she must
be my constant shadow. She must be my most vigorous critic.
My wife was a school teacher ... and so she is a qualified
person. But she needed more than that ... she' must know
everything that I know, she must share my thoughts. We must
become one person.
And now I will tell you how this article is produced ... and
then you will wonder, as I often do. how a mistake could
possibly get into print.
As you may gathei. I write very rapidly. I have often filled the
space under the masthead in the first double column in 20
minutes.
I am a completely uninhibited person ... entirely free from
the fears that haunt many people ... and so my thoughts How
freely.
After I have completed an article I throw it aside for an hour
or two, maybe a day. Then I go over it again to pick up any
mistakes in spelling, grammar, construction or fact I may have
made.
But mostly I look for words with the right sound. You know ...
there is as much rhythm in a newspaper article as there is in a
piano composition.
People tell me that my articles are easy to read. This is so
because I use small words that everybody can understand and also
because I use words that give thythni to my construction.
When I have done that I pass the article on to my wife. She
goes over it for spelling, grammar, construction, and especially
any possible errors in fact.
I produce so much copy out of my head every day that I need
a responsible person lo check me out. Mostly she is concerned
with libel and policy.
If you were in a nearby room and listened to my wife and me

LETTER
LET US
GROW UP
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Recently there have been a
lot of people saying, The
Government should buy or the
Government should build; let
us remember in a country where
the Government owns the
business and provides for the
people what they can provide
for themselves the country
becomes a Socialist State or a
more common name for it is
COMMUNISM. It is hoped that
such a state will never exist
here in the Bahamas.
In "The Nassau Guardian"
the headlines on one of their
articles was "Government Has
Used Us" Says Veteran Taxi
Driver. What makes them think
they should have a monopoly
on transportation? In their
closed group they decide how
much fare to charge and the
public must pay their
demanded fare or walk. Of
course the citizens of this
island go to and from the
airport as well as the tourists,
so what gives them or the
Government the right to say
we must use their service. We
should have a choice in the
matter.
On the subject of trans-
portation. Many Bahamians
feel their employer should
have to provide them
with transportation to and
from work. To this writer, as
long as the salary is fair, riding
on a company bus would be a
personal insult! The papers say
we are one of the richest
nations in the Western
Hemisphere and yet many
people want to be treated like
a house maid or gardener with a
tree lunch and a ride to and
from work. Don't you think it
is time that Bahamians got
some personal pride?
Besides there arc people in
the transportation industry
trying to make a living and
how much business do you
suppose they are loosing
because employers are buying
their own vehicles to transport
their employees
We have been independent
for nine months. Let us start

The bank, .,fd t st

some $4,000, closed to the
public after the incident.

source said.

motivation for cc:nributing
$200,000 to President Nixon's
campaign was simply because
he wished to see Mr. Nixon
re-elected.
This was the explanation
offered in a press statement
from the former IOS chairman
whose contribution became the
focus of the John
Mitchell-Maurice Stans criminal
conspiracy trial.
The two men, who were
actively involved in Mr.
Nixon's campaign, were
acquitted of the charges
Friday. Included was the
allegation that they conspired
to block a federal investigation
of Mr. Vesco's business affairs
in exchange for his $200,000
contribution to the President's
campaign fund.
"There was no conspiracy
between Mr. Mitchell, Mr.
Stans and myself for the
straightforward reason that
there was never any need for
one," Mr. Vesco said.

"My motivation in

Nixon re-elected to the
presidency of my former
homeland."
Mr. Vesco's statement
concluded: "The jury in the
Mitchell-Stans trial recognized
that the government had no
reliable evidence to support its
allegations of conspiracy and I
am elated and reassured by the
jurors' intelligence and
honesty.
"If there has been any
conspiracy at all it has been on
the part of those individuals
and groups who seek to
undermine the public's
confidence in the president by
any means, and I, for one,
decline to be a part of such an
insidiously damaging under-
taking."


Canadians fined $950


TWO VISITING Canadians,

change.

Police prosecutor, Insp.
Hugh Burke told the magistrate
yesterday that the men were

material believed to be
marijuana under the seat of the
car and another envelope in
Price's jacket pocket, the Insp.
told the court.

JUDGE MAKES LANDMARK RULING






Assault






conviction






quashed


PERSONS ARRESTED on suspicion of drunken driving cannot be taken to the
hospital for medical examination against their will, Mr. Justice James A. Smith ruled
Friday in what is considered a landmark civil rights case.
Architect Ian Allen, 45, had his October 19 convictions by Chief Magistrate Wilton Hercules for
assaulting a police officer and resisting overturned by Mr. Justice Smith, on grounds that Allen
"was entitled to resist being detained to be medically examined against his will and to offer such
force as may have been necessary to prevent that happening."


Allen's appeal against a
coviction for using obscene
language to the annoyance of
the policemen concerned was
rejected, on grounds that such
language "was not necessary to
resist unlawful detention (and)
on the contrary it aggravated
the situation".
Mr. Justice Smith in his
summary of the case Friday
before delivering his judgment
observed that the appeal
"raised important issues as to
the liberty of the subject, the
powers of the police to arrest
without warrant and what
power, if any, the police have
to require a person arrested to
be taken to hospital for
medical examination.
Eugene Dupuch, Q.C.,
appearing for Allen, sumbitted
that Allen's arrest in the first
instance was unlawful, because
the arresting officer failed to
tell Alen what he was being
arrested for.
Crown Counsel Pericles
Maillis argued that under the
circumstances of the case Allen
knew what he was being
arrested for and therefore,
under law, the arresting officer
was not obliged to give the
cause for the arrest.
Mr. Justice Smith ruled on
that point that "it seems to me
... that the appellant (Allen)
was aware of the nature of the
alleged offence for which he
was being detained ... and on
that basis the arrest of the
appellant was lawful."
He agreed with several
precedents cited, however, that
as a general principle to
which there arc a few
exceptions an officer making
an arrest without a warrant
must inform the person
arrested of the offence he is
suspected of having
committed.
Another argument in the
appeal was Mr. Dupuch's
submission that "even if the
actual arrest was lawful the
appellant had the citizen's


By MIKE LOTHIAN
._ __ ____________ _7% +' f ^ ____


inalienable right not to be
medically examined and the
conduct of the police officers
in compelling the appellant to
go to the hospital made the
subsequent detention unlawful
and consequently the appellant
could exercise his common law


IAN ALLEN
Medical examination
right to resist."
Mr. Maillis argued that
taking Allen to the hospital
was analogous to an officer
taking a suspect to the
suspect's home or place of
work to investigate the
suspect's alleged offence.
Mr. Justice Smith, however,
found that "there is an
important difference between
the case cited and the present
appeal.
"In the circumstances
described (by Mr. Maillis)
measures taken were
reasonable for the purpose of
the investigation, whereas in
the present case the police
were exercising restraint to
compel the appealant to
submit to a medical
examination against his will,
which the police had no power
to do and the detention of the
appellant for that purpose was
unlawful.
"It would have been
reasonable to take the


appellant to the hospital," he
added, "if he had been asked
to consent to a medical
examination at the hospital
and had consented.
"While the initial arrest in
the present case was lawful,"
he continued, "the police
officers concerned had no
power to compel the appellant
to submit to a medical
examination against his will,
and thus the continuance of
the custody during the period
when the appellant was being
taken to the hospital and kept
there against his will to await
the doctor was not justified
but tortious."
There is no evidence that the
doctor asked Allen permission
to examine him, said the judge.
He was under restraint at the
time and still in the custody of
police officers, he said.
Allen was arrested on the
night of July 20 last year
following a traffic accident.
Officers suspected he was
drunk, arrested him and took
him to the hospital for a
medical examination. While
waiting for the doctor,
evidence at the trial showed.
Allen was involved in a fight
with the policemen. The
doctor determined that Allen
was not drunk.

-Mystery-

blackout

hits

island
By MIKE LOTHIAN
A FAULT on a
high-voltage line on
Carmichael Road near
Adelaide village has been
blamed for yesterday's two
and a half hour island-wide
blackout.
But "it is a bit of a
mystery" just what caused
the fault.
Bahamas Electricity
Corporation executives are
less concerned about the fault
itself a relatively common
occurrence than about the
apparent failure of a
"protective system" intended
to isolate fault areas while
allowing supplies to
unaffected areas to continue
uninterrupted.
BEC deputy general
manager Peter Bethel told
The Tribune that if the
protective system had
functioned properly only
Coral Harbour, feeding off
the damaged line, would have
been without power.
As it happened, though,
the entire generation system
overloaded and automatically
tripped out to prevent
damage to machinery. At
about 6:10 p.m. all electricity
supplies on the island ceased,
and it was 8:20 before
engineers were able to sort
the situation out and begin
switching areas back on.
It is believed that the
entire island was restored to
power by about 8:40.
Mr. Bethel said the trouble
started on the high-voltage
line on Carmichael feeding
power from the Clifton Pier
generating station to the
Coral Harbour area. The line
.fell from a utility pole, he
said.
Just how that happened "is
a bit of a mystery," he said.
"There is no indication that
any vehicle hit any poles or
anything. The only theory we
have is that the insulators on
the pole may have cracked,
causing a short-circuit."
He explained that the
high-voltage line rests on
insulators, which in turn are
connected to a metal
cross-tree at the top of the
pole. If the insulators
cracked, he said, the
conductors (the actual lines)
would have come in contact
with the cross-tree, causing a
short-circuit.
The insulators could crack
for any one of a number of
reasons, including weather
conditions, he said.
"It is something of a
mystery to us," he admitted.
"We cannot give any
explanation yet that we
would be willing to back 100
percent."
But faults in lines are to be
expected.
"We are mainly concerned
about why the protective
system didn't work in this
case. That's what we're
concentrating on in our
investigation," Mr. Bethel
said.
He explained that when a
fault occurs the appropriate
switches should trip
automatically to prevent an
overload, isolating the
affected area and maintaining
supplies to other areas. In this
case the switch for some
reason failed to trip, with the
result that the island's entire
generation system was
overloaded, and safety
devices shut down the
generators to prevent damage.

Bahamas again major centre for unit trusts


DESPITE LOSS of
Scheduled Territories status,
the Bahamas has succeeded in
re-asserting itself as a major
centre for unit trusts, The
Bahamas Financial Digest
reports in its first edition..
The view is that of Donald
R. Kester, deputy chairman
and managing director of Trust
Corporation of Bahamas Ltd.,
largest and oldest trust
company in the Bahamas.
From a dominant reliance
on U.K. clients, TGB has
explored new markets in the
U.S., Canada and South
America and designed new


services to fulfil the needs of
these new areas, Mr. Kester was
quoted.
A discussion of trust
companies and unit trusts in
the Bahamas is only one of a
number of topics discussed in
the May issue of BFD. Others
are: the Central Bank, real
estate and land development,
immigration, business and
industrial development,
insurance, banking and the
Bahamian economy.
The Digest is a publication
of Michael A. 'Symonette &
Associates. Mr. Symonette is
also managing director of


Management Communication
Services, an advertising and
public relations firm.
According to Mr. Kester the
Bahamas, with its sophisticated
individual tax planning .,stem,
will continue to dominate tax
havens in this hemisphere.
"It would take another
tax-free country many years to
build up the advantageous'
fiduciary legal precedents
necessary for the security of
trust company clients as well as
to build up the necessary
infrastructure to support such
a sophisticated financial
institution," Mr. Kester said.


For the first quarter of 1974
TCB registered 109 new
business inquiries compared
with only 44 in the last quarter
of 1973. In March this year
there were 42 business
inquiries with 14 of them (30
per cent) being completed as
opposed to five new business
inquiries in May last year,
The loss of Scheduled
Territories status was "keenly
felt," Mr. Kester told the
Digest. Indicative of the shift
in client emphasis was the
increased number of inquiries
from the U.S., Canada and
South America.


In the last quarter of 1973
there were eight new business
inquiries from the U.S. In the
first quarter of this year there
were 25. Canadian requests
jumped from 10 to 17 and
South American from four to
19.
The Digest also reports that
the European market for
Bahamian real estate is
growing; that the immigration
situation has "considerably
improved" for business here;
that there is room for more
insurance companies na the
Bahamas and. that the economy
is on the upswing.

PRESIDENT Nixon's anger
and contempt flashes out from
the Watergate transcripts.
He displays too compassion
and loyalty toward beleaguered
staff members and such former
close friends as John Mitchell.
Here, from the vast volume
are some of the areas covered:
DEAN CONFLICTS
Dean told the Watergate
committee that on Sept. 15,
Nixon congratulated him on
doing a good job, "and the
president was pleased that the
case had stopped with (G.
Gordon) Liddy."
The transcript shows Nixon
telling Dean, "the way you
have handled all this seems to
me has been very skillful,
putting your fingers in the
leaks that have sprung here and
sprung there."
Nixon's lawyers said the
congratulations were offered
"in the context not of a
criminal plot to obstruct
justice as Dean alleges," but
rather "in the context of the
politics of the matter, such as
civil suits, counter-suits,
democratic efforts to exploit
Watergate as a political issue
and the like."
Nixon said it was on March
21, 1973, that Dean first told
him of the cover-up, including
the payments of hush money.
Dean testified that after two
meetings with the president on
that date" ... it was quite clear
that the cover-up as far as the
White House was concerned
was going to continue."
According to the transcript,
Dean told the president early
in the conversation, "I have the
impression that you don't
know everything I know and it
makes it very difficult for you
to make judgements..."
At one point, the President
expressed puzzlement over
why officials of his re-election
committee would become
involved in a burglary to get
information from the
Democrats:
"Why at that point in time I
wonder? I am just trying to
think. We had just finished the
Moscow trip. The Democrats
had just nominated McGovern.
I mean (expletive deleted),
what in hell were these people
doing? I can see their doing it
earlier. I can see the pressures,
but I don't see why all the
pressure was on then."
And, later, after Haldeman
had joined the meeting, this
exchange took place:
Nixon: "... Let's say,
frankly, on the assumption
that, if we continue to cut our
losses, we are not going to win.
But in the end we are going to
be bled to death. And in the
end, it's all going to come out
anyway. Then you get the
worst of both worlds. We are
going to lose and people are
going to ..."
Haldeman: "And look like
dopes."
Nixon: "and in effect, look
like a cover-up. So that we
can't do."
When it was suggested that
some lower-level aides might be
hurt by the Watergate
investigation, Nixon said: "We
don't want to harm the people
either, that is my concern. We



their country that is all."

NIXON-ITT
Nixon secretly intervened to
block a Justice Department
antitrust case against Inter-
national Telephone Telegraph
Corp. then forgot his
explanation for it.
Telegraph Corp.- then forgot
his explanation for it.
According to the edited
transcript of a meeting
between Nixon and Domestic
adviser John D. Ehrlichman on
April 15. 1973 the president
was preparing for a Watergate
discussion with Atty. Gen.
Richard G. Kleindienst.
A year before, Nixon had
abruptly ordered Kleindienst


not to appeal an adverse ruling
in a Justice Department
antitrust suit against an ITT
subsidiary.


the


compassion


-Guttural gurglings -


ARCHIVISTS unearthing the Watergate tape transcripts
a few thousand years hence may think 20th century affairs
of state were conducted in broken sentences and guttural
gurglings.
Throughout the 1,308 pages of double-spaced, edited
conversations, the combined effect of persons speaking in
an offhand manner and the limitations of the recording
equipment resulted in exchanges like this:
President Nixon: (inaudible)
John Dean: (inaudible)
Nixon: (inaudible)
Ehrlichman: My thought is ...
Nixon: In other words ...
And this:
Haldeman: He probably didn't to the grand jury,
Ehrlichman: That's right. As far as the quality of the
evidence is concerned ...
(Material deleted) Ehrlichman: well, go back to the ...
Nixon: All right. I only mentioned (unintelligible)
because, let me ... go ahead with your ...
Ehrlichman: Well, all I was going to say is that ...
Nixon: All right, I now have evidence that ...
Nixon: I'm not convinced he's guilty but I am convinced
he ought to go before a grand jury.
And this:
Nixon: (expletive deleted) (unintelligible)
President Nixon comes across as a man whose favourite
word is "yeah." For variety's sake, he sometimes says
"yep."
And among him and his top associates there was an easy
familiarity that seems to have virtually excluded the use of
"Mr. President."
And despite the advance reports of salty language used
by the president in private conversations, the transcripts
proved to be something of a letdown for aficionados of the
coarse and scatalogical. Nixon favours remarks like "gosh"
and "I'll be darned" along with "My God," "damn" and
"hell."
Stronger profanity by some of the lesser figures was left
alone, but the exorcisms performed by White House editors
on Nixon's speech leaves unsolved the mustery of just how
rough his language is in private.

A PRESIDENT SPLUTTERS

NIXON greeted discovery of the break-in at the office of
Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrist with a hail of unintelligibles
and a deleted expletive.
"What in the world--what in the name of God was
Ehrlichman having something (unintelligible) in the Ellsberg
(unintelligible)," the president sputtered.
Meeting with him March 17, 1973, in the oval office,
former White House counsel John W. Dean III tried to
explain.
"They were trying to this was part of an operation
that in connection with the Pentagon papers. They were
- the whole thing they wanted to get Ellsberg's
psychiatric records for some reason. I don't know."
Nixon: This is the first I ever heard of this. 1, I
(unintelligible) care about Ellsberg was not our problem.
Dean: That's right.
Nixon: (expletive deleted).


"Well look. I'll just listen to
him." Nixon told Ehrlichman.
"He has come in so often. I can
say on ITT, of course, we
didn't my basic
responsibility (unintelligible)
(antitrust chief Richard)
McLaren settled this case or
something like that, and "
Ehrlichman: Yeah.
Nixon: (unintelligible)
Ehrlichman: No, that wasn't
to settle a case.
Nixon: No, not settle -
Ehrlichman: That was not to
file an action. You remember,


they were about to tile a
lawsuit and
Nixon: How did we know
about i?
Ehrlichman: (White House
aide Peter) Flanigan found out
about it.
Nixon: You came and told
me?
Ehrlichman: I came and told
you about it.
Nixon: Why?
Ehrlichman: (unintelligible)
may have forgotten the details.
Nixon: Why didn't we think
they should file an action?


Ehrlichman: Well.
Nixon: I am sure it was a
good reason.
Ehrlichman: Yeah. We had a
run -
Nixon: (unintelligible) we
had a runaway antitrust
division at that point.
Nixon: Yeah, and I had been
raising hell with McLaren.
Ehrlichman: That's right.
Nixon: On all this and I said
now this.-is a violation of my
policy -
Ehrlichman: Not on -
Nixon (Unintelligible) A
violation of rules that I had
laid down with McLaren.
Ehrlichman: And I will
testify to my dying day that
our approach to antitrust cases
has (unintelligible) virtually
without variation, on policy
rather than the merits of the
individual case.
Nixon: Wasn't that the case
(unintelligble)?
Ehrlichman: There was one
exception to that, and that was
that Granite City Steel case
where we criticized their
analysis the Council of
Economic Advisers did.
Nixon: Yeah.
Ehrlichman: And we went
back on them on the specific
case rather than just the
general policy. That was as on
a factual issue.
The special Watergate
prosecutor is investigating
allegations that the White
House intervened to help ITT
in the antitrust suit because
ITT had agreed to help San
Diego finance the 1972
Republican national
convention. The White House
has denied the charge.

The contempt and


Getty's home movies


GUILDFORD, England -
American oil billionaire J. Paul
Getty says he's too busy to go
to his California retirement
home, so he does "the next
best thing".
He views films showing
every detail of the
$19.2-million Malibu mansion,
which houses about $240
million worth of art treasures
and doubles as a free public
museum.
"I asked my staff in
California to shoot the films
and send them to me," the
81-year-old tycoon said at


Sutton Place, this Tudor
mansion in Surrey. "I have my
own projector here and I am
enjoying watching them."
When the museum opened in
January on Getty's 65-acre
ranch at Malibu, he had hoped
to be there to begin retirement.
But he has had to postpone
this final journey back to the
United States.
"Right now my mind is
consumed with North Sea oil,
and it will be a ling time. But I
really will go to California as
soon as I can," he said, adding
with a chuckle: "Not that I can
plan ahead for 20 year." (AP)


Labour moves to repeal unions law


LONDON The
Government has embarked on
legislative action to repeal a
controversial industrial
relations law adopted by the
Conservative government to
curb wildcat strikes.
The move came as part of
the recently elected minority
Labour government's pledge to
create a climate in labour
relations that would enable the
labour unions voluntarily to
cooperate in fighting inflation.
Employment Secretary
Michael Foot set May Day,
traditionally celebrated as
labour day throughout the
world, as the deadline for
starting to dismantle the law.
Foot plans to complete the
repeal by the end of July and
political observers said it was
most unlikely the government
would call a surprise election
before then in a bid to secure
an absolute majority in the
House of Commons.

TtE OMWON LFEASSURANCECOPAW


The industrial relations act
was passed in the teeth of
furious opposition from
Britain's 10 million labour
union members. The law
imposed compulsory secret
ballots on would-be strikers
and a cooling of period before
strikes could start.
Its most controversial
provision was the industrial
relations court. It has the
power to fine labour unions
and even jail their leaders for
ignoring its rulings. The bulk of
Britain's labour unions have
ignored the court and defied its
authority.
The draft law will restore
the labour unions to their
pre-1971 position. The
compulsory ballot, the
cooling-off period and the
industrial court will all be


abolished. The bill recieved its
first reading in the House of
Commons Tuesday.
The new law, however, will
come too late to intervene in a
long-running fued between one
of Britain's biggest labour
unions the Engineering
Workers and the Industrial
Court.
The court ordered the union
to pay a 47,000-pound -
$112,800 fine to an
engineering company in
compensation for business lost
during an unauthorized strike.
The labour union had until
Monday midnight to pay the
fine and now faces
sequestration of all its funds.
The union's defiance comes in
spite of an appeal from Foot
for the union to recognize thr
court since the tribunal is


about to be abolished.
However, Foot added, while
it is still in existence it has the
force of law behind it.
The government's plans
came under immediate fire
from the Confederation of
British Industry (CBI) which
said some form of government
control over labour unions was
still needed.
CBI chief Campbell
Adamson said unlimited power
by the unions could bring
damage and harm to the rest of
society.

ANDYTOWN, Fla. -
Autopsies are planned on the
bodies of three men found in
a rock pit with their arms
bound behind their backs,
their feet tied to concrete
blocks and a bullet in the
back of their heads.
Divers from the Broward
County Sheriff's Department
recovered the bodies from the
rock pit about two miles
south of here Wednesday
after a passerby spotted one
of them in the water.
All three had been shot in
the back of the head before
being pushed into the water,
a sheriff's spokesman said.
Investigators said they
found no identification or
papers on the fully clothed
bodies.
Police said the men all
appeared to have been in
their 30s and had not been
dead for more than two days.

Dollar

moves

up well
LONDON The U.S.
dollar moved up strongly in
European foreign exchanges
today, continuing an
improvement that began late
Tuesday.
The biggest jump came in
Paris where the American
currency surged up 5-1-4
centimes to 4.95 francs. The
dollar was up 1-1-2 pfennings
to 2.4670 marks in Frankfurt
and almost 1-1-2 Swiss
centimes to 2.9435 francs.
The British pound,
meanwhile, lost more than
half a U.S. cent to $2.4120.
The dollar's recovery began
late Tuesday when traders
moved to cover their dollar
positions in advance of the
May Day Holiday in Europe.
The price of gold,
meanwhile, was unsettled in
Europe's two main markets.
It moved down 50 cents in
Zurich to $169 an ounce and
rose 75 cents in London to
$170.50 an ounce. (AP)

arrested at least 30 top leaders

One of these arrested V.

EDITORIAL

Producing a newspaper

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN HIS COLUMN "To the Point" on Saturday, April 20th,
Arthur Foulkes wrote an article which he captioned "!n A Fool's
Paradise ",
"Newspaper people," Mr. Foulkes wrote, "work under
tremendous pressure. They have to get the facts ... and,
depending on circumstances, check and re-check to make sure ...
write it ... read it ... cut it ... add to it ... put it into type ... read it
again ... compose it in pages ... check it again ... then print it.
"All of this is done with the tick tock of the clock sounding
more like clashing symbols relentlessly marking the headlong rush
to that inevitable, immovable, almost Godlike thing called the
deadline. As this happens day after day and hour after hour it is
little wonder that some journalists get old before their time and
some never see chronological old age.
"No wonder too that, in spite of the precautions, strange
things still happen in a newspaper office. A type-setter omits a
single letter to produce an embarrassing obscenity which nobody
pi cks up until thousands of papers are off the press.
"A headline gets stuck over an article to which it bears no
relationship.
"A type-setter sticks an 'e' in front of the word xenophobic
since he is almost certain he knows all the words which begin
with "X" and that is not one of them.
"And a tired proof-reader impatiently strikes out the word
'experiential' and writes in 'experimentaP,
"Sometimes a whole succession of paragraphs get dropped and
that is exactly what happened to this column last week.
Fortunately the point was not entirely lost and it was to imply
that people are likely to lose some of their cherished rights and
protections unless they are on guard against the first attempts to
erode and diminish them."
In this introduction to his article Mr. Foulkes covered most of
the mistakes that confront the people who are engaged daily in
producing this newspaper for your information ... and, I hope,
guidance and edification.
He overlooked one of the most dangerous and serious mistakes
that sometimes occurs when the News Editor asks the
photographic department for the picture of a person in the day's
news.
Unless the News Editor knows the person personally he has to
depend on the intelligence and responsibility of the person in the
photographic department to check his records to make sure he
has the correct picture, especially in a foreign news story when
the news desk is not likely to know the face of the' person
concerned.
It has happened that we have published the picture of a
criminal in place of a U.S. Cabinet Minister. And we didn't
discover the mistake until the next day when an American who
kriewtihe faces of the criminal and the Cabinet Minister phoned
to tell us we had made a terrible mistake.
This was a terrible and a frightening mistake, too, which we
hastened to correct.
I am glad Mr. Foulkes has pointed out the problems the
editorial department in a newspaper faces daily.
:f may help people in the government and some people in
tife community who back the government, right or wrong -- to
uNderstand how irresponsible former Home Affairs Minister
Athur Hanna was in the policy he pursued for years when he
r peatedly told us to hire a Bahamian, regardless of the fact that
no Bahamian was available who possessed the training and natural
altitude required by members of staff, right down the line, in the
production of a newspaper.
*A person filling any position of responsibility in a newspaper
o ce must not only have a fair education ... the person should
aldie well read ... should have a sixth sense ... and, most
iir ortant of all, a highly developed sense of responsibility which
comes only after years of experience in which the person learns
of ih many pitfalls in this business.
,ou get this paper every day but you have no idea of how it is
pr 4ped.
is like building a house ... with the difference that a building
co'ctor knows before he lays the corner stone of his building
evmail and every other piece of material that is to go into the
jo ^
Ig of the most exacting jobs in a newspaper is that of the
Nd~vsEditor. He has to build that "house" every day without
knowing when he goes to his desk in the morning what the day's
nis will bring forth.
Vhen he goes to the office he finds hundreds of feet of news
rorts that have come in on the Teletype machine during the
n t from the far corners of the earth. A sub-editor quickly
w4sks through this great variety of news with expert eyes. He
end up without finding anything that he feels Tribune
rlers want or need to know. He may find a few lines. A
pagraph. Or even a column or two.
Foreign news rolls in throughout the night and day. By the
nln deadline he must have the material he has selected reduced
tothe limited space that is at his disposal.


throughoutt the day a battery of telephones are going in the
o ..and by noon the reporters out on the road ... in the
Legislature, the Courts, on the Police beat ... or just nosing
around looking in odd comers for bits and pieces that might be of
in t ... must have their copy in shape.
&ll this material finally flows across the News Editor's desk.
Ari he must cut and change it here and there so as to fit into the
sp~e available. He doesn't use one half of one per cent of the
m4 rial that comes to the office every day.
Wy I o'clock he sits back in his chair and feels that he can see
th(shape of his "house" for the day.
knd then the telephone rings. Something big or extraordinary
hahaappened on the local scene. Or the sub-editor rushes to his
de with a world shattering story, such as the assassination of
th resident of the U.S.
the space of a few minutes he must pull his "house" down
... struct the whole thing ... and still get the paper to press
on time.
Ohm someone must also check letters for publication which
ar< ften packed with false information, and libellous statements.
don't think there is any more exacting job in the world than
th* of an editor on a newspaper.

This happens day after day and hour after hour," wrote
M Foulkes, "it is little wonder that some journalists get old
b re their time and some never see chronological old age."
during a visit to Australia in 1955 I felt that the pressure of
p lucing a newspaper in that country must be unusually great.
E\ yt'here, as I travelled across that country with a CPU group,
I et young widows of newspaper editors. One of these young
.a-.


Now I will tell you the reason I am writing this article.
Under the heading "Any Thoughts To Contribute" I wrote an
article in this column on April 16th urging readers of this
newspaper to write letters to its columns. I emphasized how
important it was for the public to express themselves freely in a
newspaper. This, I told them, was the greatest safeguard against
the loss of freedoms in a democracy.
I also urged my readers to criticize me ... to correct any
mistake I might make. What I meant was mistakes in fact, not
typographical errors and small faults in grammar or construction
because I have learned that these will slip through, however
careful my staff may be.
But my friend and old newspaper rival Edwin Brownrigg took
me literally. He went through that article with a fine toothcomb
and discovered three mistakes. He then kindly wrote me a
personal letter not for publication in which he pointed out
these mistakes.
"Forgive me please," he wrote. "You are such a fluent writer -
in fact, I am envious of your style it's a shame to mar it with
this grammatical error the one referred to in the eighth
paragraph.
"At least you know I am reading your editorials."
As a P.S. he added: "I had intended to make this anonymous,
but on second thoughts I knew that you liked people to sign their
letters."
Thanks Edwin, old boy, I appreciate your frankness and
honesty of purpose.
But it might interest you to know that after receiving your
letter I re-read that article carefully and found six minor mistakes
that did not affect the sense of the article. And that is really all
that matters to me ... that I succeed in getting a point across to
my readers ... a point that Mr. Foulkes emphasized in his article.
In a marriage ceremony a man and wife are supposed to
become one in body and mind. This is highly important if a
marriage is to endure.
This has certainly happened in the case of my wife and me. In
my work I need a watchdog ... a critic who is we!! informed and is
interested in my welfare.
And so I decided that my wife must share fully in my life. She
must know everything about me past and present. She must
know how I think. She must know everything. In short, she must
be my constant shadow. She must be my most vigorous critic.
My wife was a school teacher ... and so she is a qualified
person. But she needed more than that ... she' must know
everything that I know, she must share my thoughts. We must
become one person.
And now I will tell you how this article is produced ... and
then you will wonder, as I often do, how a mistake could
possibly get into print.
As you may gather, I write very rapidly. I have often filled the
space under the masthead in the first double column in 20
minutes.
I am a completely uninhibited person ... entirely free from
the fears that haunt many people ... and so my thoughts flow
freely.
After I have completed an article I throw it aside for an hour
or two, maybe a day. Then I go over it again to pick up any
mistakes in spelling, grammar, construction or fact I may have
made.
But mostly 1 look for words with the right sound. You know ...
there is as much rhythm in a newspaper article as there is in a
piano composition.
People tell me that my articles are easy to read. This is so
because I use small words that everybody can understand and also
because I use words that give thythm to my construction.
When I have done that I pass the article on to my wife. She
goes over it for spelling, grammar, construction, and especially
any possible errors in fact.
I produce so much copy out of my head every day that I need
a responsible person to check me out. Mostly she is concerned
with libel and policy.
If you were in a nearby room and listened to my wife and me

men in particular ahd died at his desk without any previous
warning of a coronary condition.
You may remember the story I told you some months ago of
what happened to me when I took over control of this newspaper
at the age of 20 without any qualifications to fit me for the job.
I made so many mistakes and was fooled so many times by
people 1 trusted that I was on the verge of a nervous
breakdown. My family packed me off to Jamaica for a rest. It was
while I was in Jamaica that I resolved that I must toughen my
mind to the job ... and go through, come hell or high water.
That's why I am still alive at 75, more sure of myself than ever.
I don't know of any journalist certainly not in the Bahamas
who has had a tougher row to hoe than I.
First of all, I had to learn this job with little help. I learned it
through the process of trial and error. And because we have had a
crusading policy there were always people around who wanted to
destroy us ... and who would deliberatley set pitfalls in our path
to trap us into serious situations.
This is what I meant when I said a journalist must be endowed
with a "sixth sense". He must be able to "smell" trouble when it
presents itself concealed in a carefully cropped "package "
These problems don't apply only to the news and editorial
departments. They apply also to the advertising department
where the Advertising Manager must be a man of solid training
and mature judgment.
More than once as I walked through the Advertising
Department I would hear a clerk at the desk taking an
announcement from a customer.
My trained ears would pick up a word in the conversation. I
would stop and listen. I would then walk over to the clerk and
tell her not to accept the advertisement ... that it was libellous.
The Advertising Department also works under heavy pressure
... and there libel can also occur.
I have written this article to deal with another matter.
There is one section of this newspaper that requires more than
ordinary attention ... and it is this column which is charged with
dynamite almost every day.
This column is not produced under the pressure experienced
on the news desk. An article may not be published for four or
five weeks after I have written it. But still mistakes occur.
Sometimes I pick up an old newspaper a year or two after it
was published and am shocked to find that a silly mistake had
slipped through in spite of all the efforts to make this column not
only fact-perfect but also grammatically correct and word
perfect. My daughter often says the best way to find a mistake is
to wait until after the paper is printed and distributed. Then it
will jump up at you out of the page.
A newspaper man has to be a special kind of animal. He must
be tough in body and in mind ... and he must be surrounded by
tough people.
As a young man I was very fond of a girl. I might have married
her but after seeing how I worked she named me "Cock Sparrow"
and told me I had better look for somebody else. She couldn't
live my kind of life.We are still friends and she tells me that I was
fortunate in my marriage. She never married.
I was actually engaged to another Bahamian girl. She was one
of the gentlest people I have ever known. In this respect, she was
too good for me. But I broke that off because she agreed with
everything I did. That was no good to me in my work. I needed a
woman who was physically strong and tough minded ... and God
finally gave me that woman. She is small, but she is a mighty
battle-axe, my watchdog.

LET US

GROW UP
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Recently there have been a
lot of people saying, The
Government should buy or the
Government should build; let
us remember in a country where
the Government owns the
business and provides for the
people what they can provide
for themselves the country
becomes a Socialist State or a
more common name for 1' is
COMMUNISM. It is hoped that
such a state will never exist
here in the Bahamas.
In 'The Nassau Guardian"
the headlines on one of their
articles was "Government Has
Used Us" Says Veteran Taxi
Driver. What makes them think
they should have a monopoly
on transportation? In their
closed group they decide how
much fare to charge and the
public must pay their
demanded fare or walk. Of
course the citizens of this
island go to and from the
airport as well as the tourists,
so what gives them or the
Government the right to say
we must use their service. We
should have a choice in the
matter.
On the subject of trans-
portation. Many Bahamians
feel their employer should
have to provide them
with transportation to and
from work. To this writer, as
long as the salary is fair, riding
on a company bus would be a
personal insult! The papers say
we are one of the richest
nations in the Western
Hemisphere and yet many
people want to be treated like
a house maid or gardener with a
free lunch and a ride to and
from work. Don't you think it
is time that Bahamians got
some personal pride?
Besides there are people in
the transportation industry
trying to make a living and
how much business do you
suppose they are loosing
because employers are buying
their own vehicles to transport
their employees.
We have been independent
for nine months. Let us start

The Tribune Thursday May 2 1974


IEDffORIAL
Producing a newspaper

From Page 3
arguing over something I had written you might think we were
engaged in a battle royal. But not so ... we are only working as a
team trying to bring light and truth to our readers.
After that engagement my manuscript is handed to a typist. I
write atrociously. Hers is a purely mechanical operation in which
she is bound to make mistakes.
It then comes back to me ... and once again I check it
carefully.
From there it goes to the desk of my daughter, Mrs. Carron,
who is now the Editor. She is a lawyer with three degrees behind
her name. She checks it for everything ... spelling, grammar,
construction, fact and particularly libel.
If she isn't sure on a point of libel she refers it to her husband,
who is the Managing and News Editor and also a lawyer. If they
are both not sure, then it is referred back to me and 1 rewrite the
section to eliminate any chance of libel.
Sometimes my daughter comes to my desk with an airicle.
"Daddy," she says with a mischievous twinkle in her eyes,
"you know you can't publish this. You have it out of your
system now. Forget about it."
She tears it up while I look on without any protest because I
know she is right. But, as she said, I feel better because I have
written it out of my system.
From her it goes to the typesetter who makes mistakes in
composing it. And fmally to my old friend Cyril Richardson of
Aberdeen University, who has been on my staff for about 40
years. He proof reads it.
Mr. Richardson spends the whole morning checking my article.
Occasionally he finds a spelling mistake ... a grammatical error ...
a questionable fact ... and sometimes a possible libel. He has been
with us so long that he has developed a sixth sense for smelling
out a possible libel. In such a case he checks with me or my
daughter ... and sometimes he is right.

When Arthur Foulkes was a Linotype operator on my staff he
used to set my articles on the machine. This youngster had a keen
mind. He sometimes discovered a mistake in an article and I
encouraged him to point it out to me.
As a result of this association I realized that he had great
potential. I took him off the machine and brought him to the
editorial desk where he eventually became the News Editor.
From Mr. Richardson the proof goes back to the machine for
corrections and Mr. Richardson and sometimes, Mrs. Carron
checks the corrections in the page to make sure they have been
made correctly.
In spite of all these precautions mistakes still slip through in
this column ... spelling mistakes, minor grammatical errors and,
worst of all, mistakes of fact.
On top of it all my brother, Eugene Dupuch, one of the
island's most outstanding lawyers and a Q.C., sometimes calls up
to point out that we have committed a possible libel ... and that
we had better correct it.
This is not an easy job and that is why it is so important that
we have highly trained, experienced people heading every
department in this job of daily building a "house" without plans.
Producing a responsible newspaper is as difficult as when Pharoah
required his Israelite slaves to make bricks without straw.
'OOTNOTE TO HISTORY: My lawyer brother, who was my
Assistant Editor for years before he took law,,will tell you that
f1 is probably the least clearly defined law on the Statute
Books.
"Libel is what any 12 men say is libel," is his definition of the
law.
Very few lawyers have a sense of libel.
Years ago a lawyer who now occupies a top place in the
government wrote anonymous letters to this newspaper. He used
to get annoyed when I rejected a letter because I told him it was
libellous. Because he was a lawyer he felt he should know better
than I ... but he didn't. He lacked the sixth sense of a trained
newspaper man.
Cyril Stevenson was one of the keenest news reporters the
Bahamas has ever produced. Some of my children, who were
friendly with him, urged me to take him on the staff when he was
working for The Guardian,. But I refused to offer him a job
because, while he was good at ferreting out news, he was careless
with his facts. An editor must have on his staff people he feels he
can trust absolutely.
When the Hon. Paul Adderley was writing a weekly column for
The Guardian he often made statements that I wouldn't have
passed in The Tribune because I considered them possibly
libellous. Mr. Adderley is now Attorney General and Minister of
Foreign Affairs in the government.
Eventually the Hon. Kendal Isaacs, Q.C., Legal Adviser of The
Guardian, turned down one of his articles. lie quit writing for
The Guardian in a great huff because he felt, as a seasoned lawyer
and he is really one of the best in the island his judgment
should not be questioned.
I didn't see the disputed article because it was never published
but, based on some of his articles that were published, 1 have no
doubt that Mr. Isaacs was right in his judgment.
After Mr. Adderley stopped writing for The Guardian it was
suggested to me that I should approach him about doing an
article for The Tribune.
Mi. Adderley's articles were forceful. They were extremely
good. But I never approached him.


CORRECTIONS: On Saturday I said that the contract for
building the Central Bank was given to a member of the Square
Deal Club without calling for tenders. This was a mistake.
Tenders were called for this job and the contract was awarded to
McApline's. The price was $ 1.5 million.
The contract which was awarded without calling for tenders
was for a Government building at Oakes Field at a cost of
$2,380,409 The original estimate was $1,787,672.42.

Recently I said that Buenos Aires, capital of Argentina, was the
largest city in South America. This was an impression I formed
during my first visit to the area in 1951.
Since then the Argentine has been going down, Brazil has been
coining up. Today Brazil has a fast growing city that is much
!'reer than Buenos Aires which has stagnated since the Peronista
regime of a quarter century ago. It is predicted that, at its
present rate ot g,-"'th. Brazil may one day become an active rival
of the U.S. in this hemisphere.
This correction gives point to today's article. It is an example
of how the system works because it was Cyril Richardson who
drew my attention to this mistake. He missed it when it came to
him in the proof but picked it up after the article had been
published. He was asked by Roger Carron to research the facts
because he doubted the accuracy of my statement.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
The chess-board is the world; the pieces are the phenomena of
the universe; the rules of the game are what we call the laws of
nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us.
We know that his play is always fair, just, and patient. But also
we know, to our cost, that he never overlooks a mistake, or
makes the smallest allowance for ignorance. THOMAS
HUXLEY, LAY SERMONS.


EDITOR, The Tribune.
The most commonly used
phrase today is "Building a
Nation". When the P.L.P.
government was in opposition,
one of their many solgans was
"The Bahamas for Bahamian." 1
noticed the remarks by the
Minister of Tourism the Hon.
Clement T. Maynard at the
recent seminar that he is a
positive thinker, but it
certainly won't do his
government any good if one
faction is thinking positively
while the other is acting
negatively.
Mr. Wilson MP for Grants
Town stated in the House of
Assembly that if government
didn't act soon, the complexity
of his constituency would be
changed because of the
presence of Jamaicans and
other nationalities. One of m/
criticisms of government is
usually the inconsistency of
their behaviour and action. I
don't see how government
could justify their "Bahamas
for Bahamians" and get rid of
the Jamaicans or they will soon
change the identity of Grants


Town. wnen a Bahamian was
discharged from our hospital,
and from. our library, and in
both instances they were
replaced by Jamaicans.
Now as 'far as I'm concerned
we are in the process of
building a nation, and to do a
prorer job we need the
expertise of expatriates. I don't
care where they come from or
what the pigmentation of their
skins so long as they perform
the function for which they are
employed. What I do detest is
the apparent lip service that is
the trade mark of government.
There is no disputing the fact
that the Jamaicans who
displaced Miss Pandora
McKinney at the hospital and
Mrs. Ramsey at the library
might possess the expertise we
need to build a nation, but
according to reports Miss
McKinney is quite a capable
young lady her only fault
being that she stuck a pin in
Mr. Loftus Roker's ego and let
some hot air out for which she


should have been promoted
instead of being discharged.
I don't know about Mrs.
Ramsey. I can only base my
opinion on what is reported in
the local press, and if she is
incapable of performing in the
capacity of an assistant
librarian my only question is:
Why did it take the people in
authority seven years to find
out? I know there are certain
rules that govern civil servants
and writing letters to the press
is one of them. My personal
opinion is that to stifle open
expression of the individual is
to frustrate him, and this may
be why there are so many
frustated civil servants today.
I am not condoning Miss
McKinney in any wrong doing,
she may not have known, or
she may have become so
frustrated she was prepared to
pay the consequences, but
whatever the reason she has my
sympathy. I am sure members
of government realize that not
being able to express one's


point of view is oppressive and
they should have done
something about this a long
time ago seeing as they were
busy enacting new legislation
and revising others. During the
rule of the U.B.P. government,
the Hon Carlton E. "rancis
became so frustrated by this
very same oppressive rule that
he put some 21 years service
on the line and publicly
expressed himself in a letter to
The Tribune. It was realized
from then that laws should be
made to fit the needs of people
and not for people to fit the
laws.


So often the U.B.P. have
been accused of using some
antiquated law to hamper the
progress of the Bahamian
people, but yet the P.L.P. have
been known to use these very
same laws in a much more
vicious fashion than the U.B.P.
would have ever dreamt of.
Whenever I speak to a member
of government or any
prominent member of the
party I always remind them
that they made the Bahamian
people aware of politics, and


what the U.B.P. got away with
for so long they, the P.L.P.,
won't be as fortunate.
It would appear that the
Hon. Loftus Roker, although
he is representing Bahamians,
cannot identify with them or
he certainly would not have
discharged a talented Bahamian
and on the spot replaced her
with a Jamaican national,
which he didn't have the
authority to do in the first
place and the speed in which it
was done gives one food for
thought. Or when he went to
the kitchen he would not have
told the staff as it is alleged -
that he didn't care if they went
on strike he had his food at
home, but it was the patient in
hospital who would starve.
Now this is all true, of
course, but by .reason
of Mr. Roker's political
position, the people who

12 The Tribune - Thursday May 2,1974


LONDON Wanted: Soccer expert to
manage out-of-form national squad. Salary up
to $50,000, but hopefully much less. Must
have impeccable references and guarantee to
win the World Cup every four years. Needs
iron constitution to withstand backstabbing in
event of failure after years of good service.
Most soccer fans see themselves running a
team. How about the hot seat as the successor
to Sir Alf Ramsey, 54, who was fired after 11
years as England manager?
Actually the advertisement scheduled to
appear in the situations vacant columns of the
London Times newspaper Friday reads
economically and simply: "The Football
Association England team manager.
Applications invited."
No mention is made of salary or
qualifications and experience required.


By Kerrington Wilkinson
LEAGUE leading Del Jane
Saints rallied behind the
pitching of right hander
Roscoe Hall and snapped Jet
Set's winning streak at three
games following a 6-3 victory
last night at the Queen
Elizabeth Sports Centre.
Powered by the bats of
Eddie Ford, Edmond Moxey
and John Adderly, Del Jane
captured their sixth straight
victory moving two full games
in first place.
Defending double cham-
pions Becks Bees and former
league leading Schlitz Beer are

While the ruling body of English soccer
looked for Ramsey's replacement, the British
press set up a howl of sympathy.
Newspapers, who for years have been calling
angrily for Ramsey's dismissal, seemed
shocked and somewhat saddened by his
sudden departure. The sacking pushed other
major stories down the front page in some
papers.
Tory legislator Andrew Bowden attacked
the move as "shabby, shoddy and humiliating"
and said he would complain in Parliament.
The Daily Express bannered "How Sir Alf
was toppled" across its front page and said the
manager was the victim of a behind-the-scenes
coup.
Donald Saunders Daily Telegraph
called Ramsey's sudden dismissal "shabby."
"Even if they (the Football Association)


Joe McPhee at second, single
and Bradley Johnson walked.
Eddie Ford and losing hurler
Issac Fox battled each other
for awhile until Ford
eventually won the fight when
he unhooked a slicing triple to
the left field wall plating
McPhee and Johnson for Del
Jane's 2-0 third inning lead.
Johnson led off the fifth
with a single and advanced the
second on a bunt sacrifice by
John Adderley.
Ford laid 'own a beautiful
bunt to the left side of the
mound for an-in-field hit.
Catcher Edmond Moxey
drilled a "clothes line" double
in the alley to the left
centrefield fence scoring
Johnson as Ford scored on the


relay to short stop Sidney
McKinney who did not catch
the ball giving Del Jane 4-0
margin.
Held scoreless by Roscoe
Hall two hits five innings
performance, Jet made an
effort to climb.
Jet Set bats began to sing in
the sixth as Eugene Thompson
singled and advanced to second
on a miscue by the short stop.
With two out hustling Fred
"Papa" Smith uncoiled a
screaming line drive down the
right field line for a triple
scoring Thompson and he
scored as the relay from Benny
Bain went by the third
baseman.
Singles by Lester Gardiner,
Sidney McKinney and Louis
McQuay accounted one more
tally for Jet Set to trail 4-3.
Joe McPhee singled, Sidney
Wilkinson hit by pitch and
Johnson sacrificed them up
one base
Second baseman Adderly
slapped a high fly ball to deep
center enabling McPhee to tag
up and score as Wilkinson went
home on an error by catcher
Gardiner not able to handle
Fred Smith's throw.
The Setters tried to
accomplish something in the
seventh and final inning as they
saw Dewitt Johnson and
Eugene Thompson singled with
two down.
Freg Woodside came to bat
and with third baseman Peter
Bethel playing deep he tried to
bunt his way on
but fortunately pitcher Hall
hustled off the hill and fired


ROSCOE HALL
him out at first base for the
victory.
In the first game of the
double header Becks Bees and
Carroll's Food Store game was
suspended after 4/2 innings due
to light failure at the start of
the game causing them to run
over their playing time.
On Wednesday Becks Bees
will play Del Jane at 7:00 p.m.

were in a desperate hlrr, to get rid of a
faithful servant they might at least have
allowed him the opportunity to resign,"
Saunders complained.
Sir Alf, the softly spoken manager who
ruled England's soccer destiny with an iron
hand for the last 11 years, was a
national hero when he led England to World
Cup triumph at Wembley in 1966.
His temporary replacement, who will fill
Ramsey's chair only for a few weeks, is Joe
Mercer, 60, respected general manager of
Coventry City.
The ruling English Football Association
announced it had been considering England's
soccer future since Feb. 14. The end result was
a unanimous decision that Ramsey must go.
Sometimes controversial, as when he
labelled the 1966 Argentine team "animals,"

Ministry always


ready to help


THE MINISTRY of
Education and Culture is
always to help sporting
organizations increase
membership and improve
standard of play, Mr. Roderick
Simms told last week's
Bahamas Amateur Basketball
Association's convention.
However, at the post school
level, officers of this Ministry
feel that like their counterparts
in the academic and vocational
fields, those seeking greater
development in sports and
games either for competitive or
recreational purposes will
have to bear an increasingly
greater part of the expenses
involved, Mr. Simms said.
Speaking from a prepared
text. supposed to have been
given by Minister of Education
Livingstone Coakley, Mr.
Simms continued that where
facilities are lacking or
inadequate in any particular
sports discipline, those directly
in that activity individuals,
clubs or associations will
have to exercise a greater
degree of concern.
"They will have to, not only
agitate for, but resolutely work
for the creation of the
conditions under which they
wish to participate in their
chosen activity," Mr. Simms
explained. "In some cases this
will call for a re-evaluation of
the benefits to be attained
from the sport."
Happily though, there is a
number of clubs and
associations already pulling
their weights "and in
.the foremost ranks the B.A.B.A.


stands out conspiciout
Simms cited.
Recently, officers
Ministry began work
officials of the F


Amateur Athletic Association
on a programme which it is
hoped will produce athletes
with the physical abilities and
moral character who can
represent the country with
ride and dignity.
Further development of
facilities at the Queen
Elizabeth Sports Centre, Mr.
Simms said, has had to give
priority to the provision of a
High School for the Harold
Road and Stapledon area and
the establishment of the
College of the Bahamas.
Both institutions he said will
be situated within the area
presently reserved for the
sports complex.
Recently, the B.A.B.A.
submitted suggestions for
organizing recreational
activities at the Ministry's
multi-purpose gymnasiums in
an effort to reduce the
incidence of vandalism of these
premises.
B.A.B.A.'s concern was
appreciated, "but while there
are no immediate plans for
recreational activities at the
above mentioned premises,
plans are well underway for
providing programmes at
neighboring locations," Mr.
Simms explained.
These programmes will be
similar to the pilot scheme
operated at the Uriah McPhee
Primary School on Kemp Road
during last year.

A HIT

-ON

ONE LEG


BAHAMAS' six-foot-five
forward Carl Minns (pictured)
was described as "one of the
Bahamas' finest athletes," by
Gonzaga University Sports
Director Mike McNulty. "He
is an excellent student and we
are very lucky to have such a
high calibre individual
associated with our
programme."
Having suffered a knee
injury before the season
began, Minns should not have
played. But he chose to and
had a fine season playing
on one leg.
He averaged 9.5 points and
six rebounds per game. His
high game of the year was
against Idaho when he scored
18 points and hit eight of 10
shots from the floor. In
addition, his high rebounding
game was against the same
team when he had 14.
"With the bad leg his
offensive and defensive
mobility was severely
restricted and of course his
tremendous jumping ability."
McNulty said.
Since the completion of
the season, Minns has
undergone a successful
operation and the doctor says
he should be fine next year.
A graduate of Prince
Williams High here in Nassau,
Minns attended Cochise
Junior College in Douglas
Arizona before moving to
Gonzaga. There he averaged
24 points a an was a
first team choice on the
Arizona J. C. All-Star team.
He is majoring in business
administration and like many
of the Bulldogs enjoys music
as his main hobby.
In Nassau, he holds the
high school scoring and
rebounding record with 65
and 28 respectively. He is also
a member of the national
volleyball squad.

BUCHANAN IN SIX
CAGLIARI, Sardinia Ken Buchanan of Scotland
captured the European lightweight boxing title
Wednesday by stopping champion Antonio Puddu of Italy
in the sixth round of a bout marked by the Scot's relentless
attacks.
German referee Kurt Balbach stopped the fight in the
second minute of the sixth round with the Scottish
challenger pounding away at the defenseless Puddu, a native
of Sardinia.
The 29.year-old Buchanan, a former World Boxing
Association world titlist, took command of the scheduled
15-round bout from the second round, connecting with jabs
and crosses.
After the first round an even one the 29-year-old
Puddu, European titlist since 1971, fought on the defence
despite urgings from a partisan hometown crowd at this
Sardinian capital's Sant 'Ella stadium.
The victory shot Buchanan back to the world
championship scale. It was Buchanan's 53rd triumph in 55
bouts. (AP)
