The incident happened to Mr.

WELL OVER 200 hotel
workers have already lost
or are about to lose their
jobs and hundreds more
might soon join the
unemployed as more
hotels gear down for slow
summer tourism.
Hotel Union president David
Knowlcs today enumerated the
layoffs that have been the
subject of frantic negotiations
for the past week with six New
Providence hotels, two of
which arc closing completely
for several irm ilhs
itc charges those hotels that
are cutting staff while
remaining open with
deliberately abandoning the
traditional method of dealing
with slow periods the staff
rotation system in a
concerted effort to bring
pressure on Government to
quickly approve both a
convention centre and a
gambling casino for the Cable
Beach area.
The Union's executive board
is to discuss the fast-deterior-
ating situation shortly, he said,
and he warned that the Union
will have to "take some
action" in a bid to force the
hotels back to the rotation
system.
lie said the Hyatt Emerald
Beach on the Cable Beach
strip, which The Tribune
confirmed last week was
shutting 100 of its 375 rooms
for the summer "for
renovations", has informed the
Union of plans to not just lay
off for the duration of the


sawn off shotgun.
It was around midnight when he
drove his car into the yard at the
Village and was walking around
waiting for his wife to return from the
drive-in movies with his children when
two masked men jumped him. He
couldn't get into his apartment
because his wife had the key -- she was
expected to return home earlier.
Both bandits wore white
handkerchief masks and tall floppy
hats, said Mr. Thompson. One was
short, about S ft. 6 ins. and the other a
big 6-footer. The smaller one held the
shotgun, he said. Both wore blue


denim jeans and jackets.
While the smaller man held the gun
about three inches from Mr.
Thompson's head, the bigger man
grabbed him round the throat from
behind and covered his mouth with his
hand to stop him from crying for help.
"What infuriated them, I think,"
said Mr. Thompson, "was that I had
no money on me. I'd left my tie and
jacket in the car, which I'd locked, and
I don't think they knew which was my
car."
However, the bandits tried to get
Mr. Thompson's ring and watch from
him, and when he told them he could

working man suffers.
"There is still that feeling
that there should be a
conventional hall and a casino
in the Cable Beach area, and
our feeling is that if
Government said tomorrow
'alright, you can have it,' then
there would be no lay-offs."
He said the union based its
suspicion of a conspiracy on
the fact that all past summers
have been had periods for the
tourist trade, and the hotels
have always been able to deal
with the need to economise by
rotating the staff, a method by
which overall payroll and
individual pay-packets are cut,
the union claim, but no one
loses his job.
But this summer when
business appears to be no
worse than in the past and
when staff numbers are the
same or even lower, the hotels
"are forgetting about rotation,
the traditional and customary
method, and laying off he
charged.
tHe did not miss an
opportunity to hit out at the
Labour Ministry. le said the
I emerald Beach management
told the Union that both the
Labour and Tourism Ministry's
were informed last week of the
plans to cut hack, but Mr.
Knowles said, neither Ministry
passed the information on to
the Union.
Further, he added, the
Labour Ministry "for obvious"
reasons "made the suggestion
that management should wait
until after Labour Day" before
announcing the staff cut.
Of Labour Day itself, Mr.
Knowles said:
"I think on Friday you are
going to see complete
unification of the working
masses in the country, for
positive action during the
remainder of the year for the
betterment of the conditions
of the working people."
lie declined to expand on
that statement other than to
say: "The union leaders are
going to he forced by their
membership to take steps to
relieve the burden, and the
leaders are going to accept that
the only way it can be done is
through solidarity."
Hotels on New Providence,
and particularly those in the
western section of the island,
have been lobbying for several
years for a gambling casino in
the (able Beach area to make
the mainland more competitive
with Paradise Island, whose
wide range of amenities is
topped by the Paradise Island
Casino.
They also are known to
want a full-size convention
centre so the island can
accommodate large conven-
tion groups.
Tourism Minister Clement T.
Maynard announced in the
House earlier this year that
Government accepted the
Dayton-Keenan Hotel Industry
Report's recommendation that
a convention centre be built at
Cable Beach. Mr. Maynard said
Government was already
considering the feasibility of
the plan.
The Dayton-Keenan report
did not recommend a casino
for Cable Beach.
The Hotel Fmployers'
Association could not be
contacted for comment today.

Two programmes are being filmed here for airing in

not get into his apartment because his
wife had the key, they tried to force
him into a dark alleyway between the
apartments to lay in wait for her.
"I certainly wasn't going to have
that," he said, "and started resisting.
Nothing like slugging it out with them,
you understand .... I'm not that brave.
They had a gun. But at least I
wasn't going to make it easy for
them."
Incensed by Mr. Thompson's
attitude it was then that he received a
blow to his riaht temple full force with
the shotgun. "I apparently didn't pass
out, but the blow knocked me to the
ground breaking my glasses."

it was while Mr. Thompson
was making his statement to
CID officers that he stopped
talking and just passed out.
He came to in the Princess
Margaret Hospital and doesn't
remember anything that
happened to him during the
past two days. He only
remembers the police coming
to see him.
He was kept in the hospital
for observation for 48 hours
and returned home this
morning.
A Canadian, who is a
regular visitor to the island,
witnessed the whole episode
from his apartment window.
"We saw the whole thing, but
what could we do?" he said
today. "All we could do to
help was call the police, and I
must say they were here very
fast."
The witness said the
attackers also threiterned "to

Thompson didn't get them

He also said that Mr.
Thompson later went into
convulsions and passed out as
a result of the concussion
received from the shot gun

SICK TIME
The two-year agreement
recently signed between the
Grand Bahama Telephone
Company and the Grand
Bahama Telephone and
Communication Workers
Union has been modified to
include a sick time policy.
The new benefit provides for
up to 12 days sick leave per
year at full pay, the company's
general manager has
announced.
The Telephone Company
and union agreement covers
about 67 employees in all
departments of the company.
It is considered one of the first
in the Bahamas where union
officials are also company
employees.

terminate between 130 and
150 of its staff.
Mr. Knowles said he
expected information later
today on the names and the
exact number.
The terminiations are
scheduled to take effect on
Tuesday next week, he said.
He referred to the closure on
June 1 also confirmed earlier
by The Tribune of all of the
Nassau Harbour Club's 50
.... r r, ,.s, on East Bay
Street. Management attributed
the shut-down to lack of
business, and declined to give
any reopening date. Eight
persons have lost their jobs as a
result, Mr. Knowles said.
The Tribune also confirmed
earlier that the South Ocean
Beach Hotel near the western
end'of the island, open only a
year, is to shortly shut down
80 of its 120 rooms for the
summer. There, 56 jobs are at
stake and, Mr. Knowles said
while management clearly
prefers to lay the workers off,
the union is still negotiating in
hopes of having them put on
rotation instead.
The Anchorage Hotel on
West Bay wants to lay off six
of its staff members
indefinitely, Mr. Knowles went
on.
The Canadian group that is
now negotiating to buy the
General Bahamian
Companies-owned Sonesta
Beach Hotel on Cable Beach.
he continued, has already


indicated that it intends to fire
100 employees as soon as it
takes over. The sale could go
through and the (anadians
take over at any time, Mr.
Knowles said.
As Mr. Knowles was
completing his summary of the
situation. another unionist came
into the Union's Wulff Road
offices to announce that he
had just been told by
management that the
114-room Blue Vista Hotel on
Cable Beach was closing
completely this Saturday and
"hoped" to reopen in
November.
Blue Vista manager Peter
Horan confirmed that report to
The Tribune, and said 60-65
staff members would be laid
off for the duration of the
closure.
Mr. Knowles told The
Tribune that one l'aradise
Island Hotel recently informed
the Union that it wanted to lay
off ten workers, but
negotiation has resulted in
their rotation instead.
There were also rumours. he
added, that another Paraside
Island hotel was planning
large-scale lay-offs.
"We arc aware that a
number of other hotels have
something in mind," he said.
"but they have so far given us
no indication just what it is.
"Our view." he continued,
"is that this is an organised
plan of the employers to apply
pressure on Government, the

A $250,000 PRICE
difference on PVC pipe
purchased by the Ministry of
Works has been questioned by
FNM representative Norman
Solomon (St. George's) in a
series of queries put to Works

Mr. Solomon has asked Mr.
Bowe to inform the House
whether his Ministry did at any
time during this year order a
quantity of four-inch PVC pipe
at an approximate cost of
$350,000 or $2.71 per foot.
The member wants to know
from whom the pipe was
ordered and who the local

Ministry had an offer for the
supply of the same type and
approximate quantity of pipe
at an approximate cost of
$100,000 or 80 cents per foot.
If in fact the more expensive
pipe was ordered by the
Ministry, Mr. Solomon wants

Experts

stick

by tape

decision


WASHINGTON A panel
of tape experts, in a highly
technical report stuck by its
earlier conclusions that an 18
'1z-minute gap in a White House
ltap' was caused by at least five
,1 ate erasures.
The report said the tape
recorder used by President
Nixon's secretary, Rose Mary
Woods, "probably produced
the entire buzz section" that
replaced a portion of a
S!iversation Nixon had with
then Chief of Staff H. R.
:ialdeman on June 20. 1972.
An expert hired by the
Wh.te House, Dr. Michael H. L.
liecker of the Stanford
Research Institute, agreed with
the six-man panel's conclusion
in every respect except one.
Hciktv, said the six-man
panci. "finally and irrevocably
dilsi;,red the possibility that a
"machine was involved in
producing the erasure ... we
believe that the tape recorder
... was electronically faulty at
the time when the erasure was
produced."
Hecker said he believed "it is
still possible that some internal
malfunction of the machine"
w, party responsible for the
lbu/zi:ig sound.
Before the inch-thick report
released, Miss Woods'
lawyer. Charles S. Rhyne, filed
a paper with U.S.District Judge
John J. Sirica objecting to his
receiving the report as
evidence.
Rhyne said that the panel's
conclusions "are based on
disputed assumptions and
disputed probabilities" and
that the data is inconsistent
with the testimony Miss Woods
gave last November.
Miss Woods had said that she
accidentally pushed the
record-erase button while she
was transcribing the tape for
President Nixon and at the
same time kept her foot on a
pedal used to advance the tape.
But she said she was sure that
lasted onl\ four to five
minutes.
The panel's conclusion
consisted mostly of a detailed
technical elaboration of a
report submitted to Sirica last
Jan. 15.
As they did before, the
panel members said that the
erasure "required hand
operation of keyboard
controls" and that it could
have happened through use of
a foot pedal. (AP)

Rebels



coup bid



crushed
LA PAZ A coup led by two army Lt. Colonels
against the government of President Hugo Banzer
was smothered early today without a single shot
being fired, the government reported.
The coup leaders were identified by the government as
Lt. Colonels Gary Prado Salmon and Rene Lopez Leyton.
The rebellion had started some time before midnight
Tuesday, the government said. Less than three hours later
the rebels gave up after a quick troop mobilization by the
government.
A news blackout dictated by La Paz authorities during
the short-lived attempt against Banzer was lifted only this
morning.
The government said both rebel leaders had sought
asylum in unidentified foreign embassies.
Official sources said the rebellion began to develop late
Tuesday night when Colonels Prado and Loper both
former commanders of important army garrisons took
over the Tarapaca Regiment, considered to be the country's
strongest army unit.
The regiment's headquarters is in El Alto, 12 miles from
La Paz.
From El Alto, the rebels led a tank column to La Paz and
encircled the government palace while at the same time
another unit tried to take over the city's international
airport.

lomist to


quit Britain


LONDON Prof. Harry G.
Johnson, one of the world's
leading experts on the British
economy, said today he was
leaving the country because of
the Labour government's tax
policies.
Johnson, a 51-year-ola
Canadian, submitted his
resignation to the London
School of Economics. He said
he would take up full time
duties at the University of
Chicago, where he is now a
professor of economics on a
part time basis.
An authority on monetary
policy and trade, Johnson is
one of the best known
economists working in Britain.
In a letter of resignation,
Johnson was critical of
government spending cuts
which have caused universities
to cut back expansion
programmes. He also stressed
problems from the tax policies
of the Labour government
elected in February.
Among these are higher
income taxes on foreigners
resident in Britain, in effect
removing previous loopholes
and taxing them evenutally on
the same basis as British
subjects.
Johnson said the tax changes
mean that "if I were to devote


the same effort to earning
income in the United States or
elsewhere as I have been doing
in Britain, I would he earning
about twice as much for that
effort."
The professor said that if he
stayed, his savings might
eventually be reduced by the
new government's proposed
wealth tax. (AP)

police

chase

gunmen
LONDON Three men
blasted a display window in a
jewelry shop in New Bond
Street with a shotgun today,
grabbed $120,000 worth of
gems and fled through some of
central London's most famous
shopping streets as police
pursued them.
The police said they believed
they had the gunmen cornered
in an underground parking lot
near Hyde Park.
"There could be a
shootout," one officer at the
scene said.
One raider hit a doorman
over the head with a shotgun
barrel as the trio burst into the
firm of S. J. Phillips.
Employees said the gunmen
fired a shot into the ceiling and
three more into a display
window snatched three trays
of jewels and fled by car. The
men tried to shake the police
by switching cars, but a police
helicopter hovering above the
traffic kept up with them.
The streets were cordoned
off and the police, in a rare
move for London, were issued
arms for the chase.
"It seems like they bungled
it. panicked in the shop, and
made a mess of the whole
thing." a police spokesman
said. (AP)


>ears ot investigating human
rights violations. Tuesday
charged that President Idi
Ami' has set up a regime of
terror in Uganda with torture,
murder and racial
d discrimination.
The study, sent to the
United Nations Secretary-Gen-
eral Kurt Waldheim, said that
:here has been a "total
breakdown of rule of law"
since "Big Daddy" Amin seized
power in 1971 and that even
minimum judicial safeguards
are not respected.
Points listed in the 63-page
study included:
All political activity has
been suspended. All basic
freedoms are in abeyance.
The independence of the
judiciary has been undermined.
Specifically since the "arrest
and subsequent murder" of the
Republic's Chief Justice,
Benedicto Kiwanuka, in
September 1972.
The armed forces have
been put beyond the law and
have been given almost
unlimited powers of arrest and
search ..." these powers have
been "largely used to arrest,
detain, torture, and kill
thousands of civilians from all
walks of life, who for one
reason or another have been
suspected of opposition to the
present regime." Only a very
few ever are put on trial.
The expulsion of Asian
non-citi/ens was an act based
on an explicit policy of racial
discrimination. The banish-
ment of all Asians
recognized as Uganda citizens
to a remote and unfamiliar
rural life was an act of racial
discrimination which had the -
no doubt intended effect of
driving almost all of them out
of the country.
Summing up, the study said:
"The effect of these massive
and continuing violations of
human rights has been to
create a reign of terror from
which thousands of people
from all walks of life,
Africans as well as Asians,
have sought refuge in voluntary
exile. Those remaining are in a
constant state of insecurity."

Hangover?

Beware

the

aspirin
WASHINGTON Two
medical experts say drinkers
trying to cope with a
hangover may be making
those morning-after blaahs
even worse if they reach for
the aspirin bottle.

Adding the insult of aspirin
on top of the insult of
overindulgence in alcohol is
unsafe," Prof. Stewart C.
Harvey told the Senate
Monopoly Subcommittee
yesterday.
Harvey, a pharmacology
professor at the University of
Utah College of Medicine,
said that after heavy alcohol
intake, aspirin tends to break
down membrane barriers
which normally prevent
stomach acid from damaging
the stomach itself.

Harvey recommended that
the term "antacid" be
removed from the label of
any aspirin-containing
product. That would include
popular combination
products such as Alka-Seltzer
and Bromo-Seltzer.

Dr. Howard Spiro, chief of
the gastrointestinal unit at
the Yale University School of
Medicine, testified that
"alcohol adds tot the harmful
effect of aspirin in promoting
erosion in the stomach."

MIAMI Sen. Edward
Kennedy today told an
enthusiastic audience that the
Nixon administration "has its
foot in its mouth, its hand in
your pockets" through
incompetent economic
policies.
In a speech to the
International Ladies Garment
Workers Union, the Mass-
achussetts Democrat drew
his greatest ovation when he
said he had dreamed of
"standing in a vast hall here in
Miami addressing a great
national convention."
When he added, "even
though this is the wrong year
and the wrong convention,"
the delegates roared their
approval and banged on tables
to show support for what they
interpreted as an allusion to a
try for his party's Presidential
nomination.
Kennedy, apparently feeling
he had gone too far in alluding
to his political aspirations,
grinned and said: "That wasn't
supposed to come out quite
that way." (AP)

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
YESTERDAY I told you that stories about love and war never
fail to catch the imagination and wring the heart especially of
youth.
This is one of the strange contradictions of human emotions
because war is a story of blood and death while love is dll
tenderness and the very germ of life itself.
As a boy I loved stories about war and love ... I still do. And
so. in many ways. a youthful heart still beats in my old body.
I think my favourite story was Alexander Dumas' Three
lMusketeer. I believe most of you must have read this book. If
you haven't ... then do.
It is the story of three friends who were the best swordsmen in
France. They fought as a team and had many thrilling adventures
together. I used to dream of myself in the role of d'Artagnan
His companions were named Porthos and Aramis ... they were
all equally good swordsmen ... but d'Artagnan had a certain flair
that made him stand out from the rest.
My love stories were all about knights in shining armour
rescuing fair damsels in distress. Thisis probably why I still have a
tender feeling towards the gentler sex. I have always felt that
women are the most beautiful detail of all God's creation.
This is why I find it difficult to accept the role women are
trying to carve out for themselves today in which they would like
to displace men under the label of Women's Lib.
As long as I live I will retain my feeling towards women ... that
they are something precious, a jewel to be loved, cherished and
iicraled with special consideration.
Ard so I went to war in search of love and adventure. I found
tlihei both. They were not exactly what I had dreamed about but
I did bring back home with me a few experiences that still live
with me as pleasant memories ... although sometimes with a big
question mark behind them.

In one of my recent stories I told you how a beautiful coloured
girl rescued me from a difficult predicament on a sidewalk in the
city of Marseilles, France.
That day she was for me a vision of joy ... an agel of purity
and perfection. But my dream was shattered a few days later
when I had reason to believe that she was not what she had
represented herself to be. Whatever she may have been, I still
think of her kindly ... because she was kind to me.
Today I will tell you another story of "puppy love" that came
into my life ... also in France.

Shortly after our arrival in France from the desert in Egypt we
were taken in lorries to a point within the sound of the heavy
guns.
There we were discharged from the lorries and made to march.
It was:; happy moment for me when the whole world seemed to
erupi and in the distance the horizon was illuminated with the
blaze uc gunfire and the explosion of Verey lights that turned
night into day.
At last d'Artagnan meaning me was going to engage with
the enemy. I had no trusted sword at my side but we had been
given vigorous training in bayonet fighting ... and I was prepared
to accept this less glorious weapon as a substitute.

But this was not to be THE DAY. It soon became clear that
this exercise was intended merely as an introduction to fire
because we were taken back to the village of Bruay where we
spent the first night on the cement floor of the Town Hall.
Somehow the events of that night are not very clear to me. I
remember being taken a certain distance in lorries ... and then the
march in the night ... but I can't remember how we got to Bruay.
I think we must have been picked up by lorries and taken back
to this small town ... because it was far removed from the sound
of war.
The next day we were billeted in horse stables and cow barns
in the area and bedded down in straw.
From what I gathered while there ... Bruay was a farming and
coal mining area.

i don't remember how long we were at Bruay but it was long
enough to give my impressionable heart a flip.
As I have told you, I was so small that everywhere I went in
Fiance girls spoke of me as "the petit garcon"(little boy:
You will probably remember the story I told you about the
Eleutheran who got into trouble by refusing to obey an order ...
was court-martialled ... sent to prison for a long time ... and
ended up in a padded cell on the Crazy Hill in Nassau.
This man and I were friends. By contrast with me. he was tall
and robust. A member of Parliament in Nassau today reminds me
of him with the one difference that my friend was taller and more
erect.
I sometimes wonder if they could be distantly related.

We had nothing to do in Bruay. As I recall it, there were no
restrictions on our time or movements, and so my friend and I
used to go for long walks, across hills, to nearby villages.
On one ot these walks we dropped into a small shop. I can't
remember the kind of shop but it must have been a book store of
some kind because there was a rack of sentimental postcards
standing in one corner.
When we entered the shop a beautiful young girl was standing
at the counter talking with a middle-aged woman who was the
sole clerk in the place.
My smallness was emphasized by my companion who, by
contrast, was a giant.
In an audible whisper the beautiful young girl said "petit
garcol to the woman behind the counter. She looked at me and
smiled.

I needed no introduction. This was enough. I went straight up
to her. I felt I had to prove to her that I might be small in size but
I had the heart of a man.
She seemed intrigued by my advance but we were stumped ...
she didn't speak English, I didn't speak French.
I always travelled with a French-English dictionary in my tunic
pocket. I look it out of my pocket and thumbed the pages to a


combination of words in which I told her how beautiful she was.
She took my hand and led me to a table that stood by the card
rack. We spein the rest of the afternoon saying sweet nothings to
each other through the means of those cards and my
French-English dictionary.
I forgot about Carey ... he discreetly disappeared.
When the time came to part I asked. her whether I might visit
her at her home.
Oh no, she said. And then she told me a story.
She aid that her father was a big coal mine owner in the
district. Her brother had been a doctor in the French army. and
was taken prisoner. When he went away he was very, very fat. He
escaped from captivity. When he came back he was very, very
thin, like a skeleton. Her family was in the officer class. They
would not approve of her associating with a private soldier.
She said something to the woman of the shop who bowed
agreement with whatever she said.
She then told me that. we could meet at the shop every
afternoon ... but nothing more.
And so we met ... and we talked through the medium of the
sentimental cards.
I was young and stupid, of course. I just thought this happy
adventure could go on forever. It just never occurred to me to get
this girl's name and address.
One night I returned to my billet and found the men busy
packing. Orders had come through that we were marching out of
Bruay the next morning. No one was to leave their billets.
I was heart broken that I would have no opportunity of saying
good bye to my dream girl. It was only then th.t I realized that I
didn't know her name ... nor did she know mine.
Would I ever see her again?
I did. When we marched out of Bruay the next morning it was
raining heavily. We passed the shop of my love adventure but
the glass window was all fogged over with mist.
As we were passing a hand was passed quickly over the fogged
interior of the glass. A spot was cleared revealing the face of my
dream girl.
She waved ... and I like to think there was a tear drop in her
eyes.
I waved ... but there was a big question mark in my heart.
You see, we always met in the afternoons. This was morning ...
not our time for meeting.
This time she was holding a baby in her arms.
Whose baby?
Thus ended a pleasant interlude that I still think of kindly.
Some day I would like to go back to Bruay to see whether any of
the spots I knew are still there.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: My wife and 1 returned to Nassau
Monday night after attending an International Press Institute
Conference in Japan and making my fourth trip around the
world. We were accompanied by our 11-year-old grandson,
Graham Dupuch.
I will relieve Mr. and Mrs. Roger Carron at The Tribune so that
they can take their first vacation in five years. After that I will
leave the island again to continue my pursuits abroad.
I wrote a great many articles on this trip but I find that there
are still seven articles left to complete the lot i left here before I
went to Japan. These articles will be published before I start the!
new series.
And then I will write about the bleak situation that has
developed here during this last short month. There is no hurry
because events are following an inevitable downward course and
so I can pick up the threads at any point in the plunge.
I told you what was going to happen to you and the country
under the P.L.P. government. Now it is happening, far faster than
I had thought possible. All I can say is that I am sorry but, lest
you forget, let me remind you that a free people get the kind of
government they deserve.

I met a friend in the airport in Miami on Monday. He was
worried about the situation here but he is still clinging to the vain
hope that "Pindling and Paul will find some way to pull us out of
this mess."
Let us be serious. On their record of extraordinary political
gymnastics, what do they have to offer the country today?
Certainly they are not men who are likely to inspire
confidence.
And supposing they were able to inspire confidence ... how,
with what and with whom could they hope to repair the damage,
especially at this time when the whole world is concerned about
the economies of the major nations.
Carlton Francis has been stripped; Ministers Maynard, Roker,
Coakley and Dowe are now under fire. They should go. But with
whom would-Mr. Pindling replace them?
Already Mr. Pindling has hit the dregs of the material in his
party.
There will be a change. This is inevitable. But the next move
will be another downward step in the folly of a nation sick unto
death.
I am sorry all this is happening but it is your own choice. And
there isn't anything anyone can do about it.
Most to blame for this situation are all the people both white
and black who ran for their holes like a bunch of frightened
rabbits to cover their own miserable skins at a time when this
country needed men who had the courage to stand up and fight
for honesty, fair dealing and the brotherhood of man in public
places.
I have just glanced through copies of The Tribune since my
return. I see that Mr. Cadwell Armbrister says income tax is
inevitable, Carlton Francis wants a republic, and Finance Minister
Arthur Hanna is trying to do a Pontius Pilate on his colleagues in
the government. He may not have been involved in the graft of
which certain members of the government have been openly
accused.
What was the justification in the way his extra entertainment
allowance was handled in the Cabinet without reference to the


Legislature or the manner in which he has handed out contracts
without calling for public tenders, or the way in which Home
Affairs was packed with Hannas and their relations when other
young people in the island needed and deserved jobs?
Let him wash his hands clean of his associates in government
... thereby indirectly acknowledging that this is a tainted
administration ... but there's one thing certain and it is that his
harsh Immigration policies as Minister of Home Affairs did as
much to destroy the economy of the Bahamas as did Mr.
Pindling's "bend or break" attitude towards Freeport.
No Arthur Hanna, you are all in the same boat and the people
are now beginning to realize alas too late that the whole lot
of you banded together are not worth a tinker's damn.
But who is to take the place of these men?
That's a question today that no man can answer because -
based on the situation that's developing in the world today and
the damage done by the stupidity and viciousness of the P.L.P.
government only a miracle from heaven can savethe Bahamian
people from falling into a pit they have dug for themselves.
But miracles still do happen. Let's hope and pray that magic of
the old U.B.P. belief that the harder you bounce the Bahamian
ball the higher it will bound is still capable of exercising its charm
on what appears to be an impossible position.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
I don't think much of a man who is not wiser today than he
was yesterday. LINCOLN.


EDITOR. The Tribune.
Please give rei. a little space
in your valuable paper to let
Mr. Hanna know people are
not as stupid as he might like
to think. He took the last
phrase of Mr. Kendal Isaacs'
speech he said, which I was
unable to hear due to technical
difficulties so Z.N.S. claims.
It seems so funny to me that
all the speeches came on loud
and clear including Mr. lianna's
which came over after Mr.
Isaacs. "Technical difficulties"
had to happen when Mr. Isaacs'
speech came on as this
difficulty always seems to
happen when one or more of
the opposition make a speech
over Z.N.S.
Anyway I strayed from what
I intended to say to Mr. Hanna.
He said that Mr. Isaacs said
that his party is ready and able
to take over the country and.
he, Mr. Hanna. feels that the
people will not vote for the
U.B P I thought the U.B.P.
was finished but I feel that
many people wish they were in
the position today that they
were in during the tI.B.P. reign
because. Mr. Hanna, during the
U.B.P. time there were lots of
jobs enough for people who
wanted two and three could
have found them.
I know you will say maybe
but what kind of jobs were
there to be found. I will list a
few in order to refresh your
memory the waiters and
waitresses were holding down
two jobs a day. The maids were
fully employed, the chauffeurs
could have found jobs also
the school children could have
found part-time jobs during the
summer holidays. The
construction field was booming
and the masons and carpenters
were able to do extra jobs on
the weekends along with the
steady weekly jobs. Gardners
were able to find jobs also but
the Bahamian people did not


have to do this type of job
because as I have stated above
there were other jobs.
But I know. and you know,
if a notice appears in the
papers today for somebody to
weed a yard the Bahamians will
flock for that job and you
know why. It is because you
and your Government brought
us, the Bahamian people, to
that. While the people
including myself put you there
because we had such high
hopes for better things which
we thought you and your
Government would have done
for us and our children. But
the only thing you and your
Government did which I can
see is to better your own
conditions like paying
yourselves exorbitant salaries
and entertainment allowances
while we the people are now
jobless, hungry and losing the
little which we had.
You also said that you and
your Government put us. the
Bahamian people on our feet
but you have that all wrong.
WE the people put YOU on
your feet meaning the
Government and a few of the
Bahamian people who happen
to be in the Square Deal and
close friends of the Ministers.
I think your memory is
short but it should not be
because today is the 30th of
the month and you just got
your pay cheque from us the
people.
You also talk about the
Water situation in the country
when you said that your
Government put water as far as
Acklins right to the people
door step which the former
Government did not do. You
might be right I will give you
the benefit of the doubt, but
Mr. Hanna what good is there


to have the taucet or pump at
your door-step and no water
coming out' I repeat NO
WATER. I feel the people
would rather go back to the
pump two miles away with
buckets on our heads and
know water would be there
You better stand up and take
note because you and your
Government will soon see no
cheque on the 30th ot the
months to come

Future of Catholic Schools


system i
THE FUTURE of
the Catholic school system in
the Bahamas is in some doubt,
and the doubt appears to arise
from financial difficulties, a
press release summarising the
recent diocesan General
Assembly indicates.
The summary, dealing also
with the Assembly's discussion
of youth and religious
personnel, was somewhat
ambiguous in its treatment of
the education issue, but the
ambiguity itself helped point
to serious problems.
The press release said "it was
observed that the recent closing
of St. Anselm's Parish School
had caused concern not only to
the parishioners of St.
Anselm's but also to a great
number of people interested in
the future of the Catholic
school system" and
indication that what brought
about the St Anselm's closure
was a problem common to
most or all the other parochial
schools.
The press release quoted the
Education Committee's report
to the Assembly:
"It would be prudent to
recognize that the number of
students attending the Catholic
diocesan schools in New
Providence has been steadily
declining during the past few
years, as evidenced by the fact
that the enrolment in diocesan
schools in New Providence in
September, 1969 was 3,796
while in September, 1973 it
was only 2,742" a drop of
more than 25 percent in four
years.
According to the press
release, "the report called for a
decision on the future of the
Catholic school system
pointing out that 'if a
commitment is made that we
will have Catholic schools, it is
still necessary to determine the
form it will take ... (and that)


coincidental with this
commitment must be the
acceptance that a suitable
proportion of our income must
be set aside to meet the
necessary expense which wc
undertake'."
The sections of the report
quoted in the press release
indicate there was also a
suggestion that the Church
considers either reducing or
eliminating school fees for
parochial schools because it
was thought that parents -
even Catholic parents for
the most part preferred free
education for their children.
The financial concern was
indirectly underscored when
the press release reported that
after lengthy debate the
Assembly adopted a resolution
calling on the Catholic Board
of Education "to call on
parents and guardians to pay
school fees within two months
of their becoming due or, in
the absense of a valid reason
for non-payment, face the
suspension of the child or
children concerned."
Another resolution adopted
by the Assembly declared that
"the Catholic Church meeting
in General Assembly 1974
reiterates its conviction of the
necessity and value of Catholic
education in assisting parents
in our country and that
through all available means of
communications both on a
diocesan level and a parish level
this conviction be brought to
the attention of all the
members of the Church to
enlist their support of this
conviction."
The Assembly, convened at
St. Augustine's Monastery May
20-23 was closed to the public,
although copies of some
speeches and brief reports of
debates were released.
The wrap-up released issued
last week reported in


connection with educate ;n that
the, Assembly also passed a
resolution calling on the Board
of Education to consider
establishing a pension plan for
teachers of long-time service.
On the youth issue, the
release said "it was apparent
that there was a growing
number of young people who
were anxious to 'get involved'
but that leadership and
youth-oriented programmes
would be necessary in order to
continue to attract and,
perhaps more important, to
keep these youths in the
Church.
"Accordingly, resolutions
were passed calling for the
establishment of marriage
preparation courses, the
employment of a full-time
Diocesan Youth Director and
the establishment of a lay
apostle programme for the
recruitment of young Catholics
'in order to work principally
on behalf of the Catholic
community but also
ecumenically with
youth-oriented programmes
and projects'."
The shortage of Bahamian
religious personnel prompted
the Assembly to pass a
resolution calling for the
immediate establishment of a
Personnel Board within the
Diocesan Advisory Council.
The Assembly, unlike a
Church Synod, has no
legislative power or authority,
but can only make
recommendations which the
Bishop can approve or
disapprove as he sees fit.
The Assembly passed a
resolution recommending that
the Assembly meet annually
from now on. beginning on the
Monday of the week in which
Ascension Thursday falls on
each year.
Mr. Keith Duncombe is
chairman of Advisory Council.

DEAR ABBY: I have a son who was my whole life until
this happened. He wa: married for 18 years and had two
lovely children. Then all of a sudden he left his wife and
family to go live with a man!
He called to tell me about it. My world was shattered.
When he was younger, I sometimes wondered if he was
homosexual. I noticed a few signs, but I never would ac-
cept it. In my hysteria, I screamed at him over the phone:
"As far as I'm concerned, you just died. In fact, drop dead.
I never want to see you again!" Then I hung up.
He and his wife must have some kind of understanding
because she doesn't seem nearly as upset as I. I'm told he
spent last Christmas Eve with his family, helped with the
tree, and everything went smoothly.
Abby, dear, I am not without sin. Was I wrong to sit in
judgment and condemn him? Should I accept him for what
he is? We were always so close and really loved each
other. Should I call him and apologize? Please, Abby, tell
me what to do. BROKENHEARTED MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: When we do the right thing, we feel
good about it. When we do the wrong thing, we feel bad.
Call him.

DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been considering
beginning a family, but we aren't completely certain that
we want to, for various reasons. However, here is one
reason in particular which bothers me. I have always been
a rather possessive person, and it is important to me to be
the most important person in my husband's life.
I'm afraid if I had a child, the child might become more
important to my husband than I am and I would then
become jealous of my own child. I've seen it happen in
some families.
I have caught myself feeling jealous when my husband
shows affection for our dog. Now, wouldn't it be terrible to
feel that way about your own child? Does this sound far out
to you, or have you come across this problem before? And
what should I do about it? JEALOUS
DEAR JEALOUS: If you're jealous of a dog, forget about
a family. It shouldn't happen to a child.

DEAR ABBY: I finally met a man I can be serious
about, and there are only two things wrong with him.
One: When we go out to dine, he cuts all his meat into
little bite-sized pieces as though he were preparing it for a
4-year-old child, or a dog!
The other thing: When a lady comes into a room and he is
seated, he never stands up.
How can I get him to correct these two faults without
hurting his feelings? He would be perfect otherwise.
SERIOUS ABOUT HIM
DEAR SERIOUS: Tell him lovingly that if it weren't for
two minor flaws in etiquette, he woueald be perfect! Then

-We must help


ourselves,


says Coakley


THE CONCEPT of self-hel$
can be one' of the most
meaningful things for
Bahamians, Education and
Culture Minister Livingstone
Coakley said in an address at
Saturday's launching of the
Jane Hutchinson Scholarship
Fund.
"This is perhaps foreign to
our concept and our thinking,
but more and more we need to
think of what could be done of
self-help ... this can be on the
grander scale, one of the most
meaningful things for us in this
country," Mr. Coakley said.
Speaking to a large audience
consisting of local
Parliamentarians, educators,
clergymen youth leaders and
representatives of the judiciary
and business sector, he said
that the establishment of the
fund is one of the good things
to have emerged from our
independence year.
"It is an important and solid
symbol of the fact that the
members of the youth groups
and the National Youth
Congress understand one of the
basic meanings of indepen-
dence," he said.
He added that Bahamians at
times have to meet the needs
that have to be filled in our
country and by doing whatever
we can, our country and
people will become happy and
prosperous.
"We must not expect the
Government or the rich to do
everything, or most of what
needs to be done. As
individuals and as groups we
must help ourselves to help one
another and in this way, the
things that we do will be solid
and we'll have a firm basis for
our pride in ourselves."
The scholarship fund,
sponsored by the National
Youth Congress, a body
comprised of various youth
civic improvement organ-
isations, is deserving of
praise because it is being
promoted by young men and
women in memory of one of
their own, Mr. Coakley said.
Miss Hutcheson, an


instructor at the Government
High School up to the time of
her death last year, "was such a
vibrant, all-consuming
individual that she must have
made her mark in school, at
college, and then to return to
her own school as a teacher. In
that seemingly very short time
she made such an impact," he
said.
"In her very short life, she
made her contribution and
many of us will take many
more years to do the same
thing," Mr. Coakley said.
She did not just say that she
believed in people but really
did and was prepared and
involved herself with them.
From the public money that
was spent on her education and
training, she returned home
and was giving it back to the
youth of our country, he
explained.
"Jane came back. not with
question marks, not with
wanting to be the boss at the
initial step, but to make her
contribution. The cry is today,
once you have come back from
university, immediately you've
got to go to the top. We all
have got to do our period of
stewardship," Mr. Coakley
stated.
The banquet was held under
the patronage of the Prime
Minister and Mrs. Pindling and
the parents of Miss Hutcheson,
at the Governor's Hall of the
Sheraton British Colonial
Hotel. Mr. Coakley make his
address following a bonquet
presentation ceremony by Miss
Great Brown, N Y.C. Educa-
tion Committee Chair-
man, to the Minister's wife and
Jane's mother.

The banquet ended
following an impersonation act
by Mr. Joe Karatis Williams.
Terrific Talents School. and
a dance to the music of Thc
Collegians Band, comprised of
student teachers at the
Bahamas Teachers' Training
College. N.Y.C. President,
Hubert Lewis, proposed the
vote of thanks.

visitor said.
Mona de Barany, public

company in the tourism field,
was referring to the unspoilt
scenery in Nassau that she
had seen. She thought that
investors should not

She was impressed with the
"gentleness, hospitality and

people and believes her
company may well be

SCARROLL RIGHTER'S

lGHOROSlCOP
L from the Carroll Rightfr Ititute
r GENERAL TENDENCIES: Daytime, especially
early morning, is excellent for putting in
motion some special talent you have though an unusual
opportunity. Later, the good aspects gradually decrease in
force, so do everyday things then.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Plan some amusement that will
be pleasing, or do something unusual with a partner. Then get
busy on important routine work.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Keep promises made with
more speed than heretofore. Talk over practical affairs with
mate and come to a better understanding.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Partners will gladly go along
with your ideas early if you clarify there and then carry
through with whatever work is necessary.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 1l) Plan work early
and you get much done. Take co-workers into your confidence
and you can work better together. Avoid a borrower.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Try to be more willing to go
along with the ideas of good friends where recreation is
concerned. More courtesy with mate brings finer rapport.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept 22) Instead of fretting about
those home tasks, roll up your sleeves and get them done. Not
a good day or p.m. for entertaining at abode.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct 22) Keep out of any argument
between a fellow worker and an associate, or you become the
fall guy. Assist others. Don't fall for tricks of troublemakers
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Although it may be a
bother, be sure you get that money matter handled with real
care, since it is important. Revise budget.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You want to handle
personal conditions better, so get an early start on them
Avoid a grumpy group. Await a better time to get together
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan: 20) Clear the decks for more
important activities. You can solve a friend's problem easily,
so be willing to do so when asked.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Help good pals who come
to you for assistance You need some social life in p.m., so get
right into it. Be poised when others are excited.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Get into those civic matters
that are your particular cup of tea and add to present prestige
Pay bills. Use your real ability.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY .. he or she should
be given the finest courses of education since the mind will
absorb everything like a sponge. Don't be afraid to give a
heavy schedule, but make sure sports are also indulged in to
build up the body and strengthen the voice, since your
youngster is very articulate Teach early to stay on the positive
side of life and avoid the negative. Pay attention to diet.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

8 The Tribune*** Wdnlesday, June 5, 1974


By GLADSTONE THURSTON
AMBIDEXTROUS Randy
Rodgers defensed the strong
St. Michael's Dodgers to just
three hits over seven innings
while defending champs the
Ministry of Works took a 5-2
victory in last night's first game
of the New Providence Softball
Association's 1974 season.
Pitching right and batting
left, Rodgers contributed one
run from his one for three
plate appearance.
And, statistics might have
been brighter had he gone
through some diligent practice.
Most of his time went towards
keeping Schlitz his baseball
*eam in the running for
pennant.
"Normally, it's the same
thing every year, we hardly
practise," he admitted. "But
we still win. That's the type of
team we have".
Topping the Ministry's
offence was the bat of veteran
catcher Leon "Apache"
Knowles whose three hits from
three times at bat produced
two rbi's, the first of which
tied the game and the second
moved the Ministry three runs
in front.


Right fielder Anthony
Bostwick from three at bats
collected two of St. Michael's
hits. He scored one. Rookie
third baseman Jackie Wright
got the Saints' other hit from
three plate appearances. He too
scored one and knocked in
one.
Fairly satisfied with his
performance, Rodgers is
confident that he can do
better. "I didn't like the way I
pitched to a few batters," he
said pondering his five strike
out/five walks stint.
"I couldn't .get the ball
where I wanted to until the
later innings when I really
started getting control of my
pitches," he said.
Two hits, a walk and two
errors in the second inning
rescued St. Michael's from a
possible shut out. They utilized
these in scoring their two runs.
Bostwick who led off that
inning with a triple was given
an easy passage home on
Wright's infield hit to tie the
game at one all. Jackie stole
second and moved to third on
Knowles' pick off.
An error on short Peter
Bethel allowed Roosevelt


YOUTH TENNIS


Turner to reach first base
safely. He was later joined by
Lloyd Bowleg cramming the
corners.
Left hand centre fielder
Eddie Ford assured the Saints
of their brief lead. His hit
drizzled out in front of the
plate and, as Rodgers made the
assist to first base, Wright
crossed the plate.
That was the end of the line
for the Saints. Of their 19
remaining at bats, only two
saw third base. Their final hit
was a sixth inning infielder
from Bostwick.
Tying up in the bottom of
the second inning on Knowles'
first rbi, the Ministry returned
in the following frame with
three winning tallies.
Third baseman Fred Taylor
put them ahead scoring on
catcher Adler Minus' throwing
error. Vianny Jacques scored
the second run of the inning
again on a throwing error from
Minus.
Jacques who was safe on a
fielder's choice stole third
successfully as Minus'
attempted pick off went wild.
Knowles later was credited
with his second rbi of the game

"ANOTHER LANDMARK
in Bahamian tennis was
achieved over the weekend
with the introduction of a
Bahamas Lawn Tennis
Association sponsored and
organized youth programme",
announced Mr. J. Barrie
Farrington, president of the
BLTA, today.
He went on to say that the

a select committee of the the

minimum of five years and
designed to develop the full
potential of young residents
ages 9 to 16, interested in
playing tennis.
There are two primary
objectives:
In the first year, to work
on the development of those
youngsters who manifest the
greatest potential, and
In subsequent years, to
sustain a much broader
programme that will make


tennis a foremost activity in
the Bahamas.
The programme for the first
year will cover three phases.
The first phase, May 31 to
June 30, which is limited to
150 youngsters, will consist of
weekend clinics scheduled by
the five participating tennis
professionals.
A BLTA appointed player
selection committee, with the
specific responsibility of
monitoring the clinics, must
select, by the end of June, 30
to 40 youngsters who have
demonstrated good potential
for development.
The youngsters so selected
will then go into Phase II,
which will cover the period
from July 1 to September 7,
1974.
There will be five groups,
with each group being attached
to a tennis professional,
During Phase II, a number of
junior tournaments, under the
management of the BLTA, will
be staged and will be open to
all youngsters, the idea being
to expose our young tennis
players to the competitive
environment.
Phase III, because of the
time of year, cannot be as
intense as Phase II, but will
consist of as many clinics as
possible.

DERBY
RPiOM Snow Knight led
all the way to win the 195th
running of the Epsom Derby
this afternoon.
Snow Knight, a 50 to 1
outsider finished two lengths
ahead of Imperial Prince, a 20
to 1 shot.
Giacometti, second fav-
ourite at 5 to 2, was third
a length behind Imperial
Prince.
With Brian Taylor up,
Snow Knight had a
half-dozen challengers when
he rounded famed Tattanham
Corer, but drew away to win
comfortably.
It was only the second
time in 12 years that the race
was won by a Britishbred
horse. The winner was sired
by Firestreak out of Snow
Blossom.
Snow Knight, owned by
Mrs. N. Philips and trained by
Peter Nelson, picked up a
first prize of $214,169.
An estimated 500,000
persons swarmed over Epsom
Downs in an effort to watch
at least part of the famous
thoroughbred race.
Security was tight because
of the presence of Queen
Elizabeth and other members
of the British Royal Family
who walked down the track
to take their place in the
royal box. (AP)

lift Test

DERBY The Indians lilt
their way to a thrilling eight
wickets victory over
Derbyshire yesterday a
perfect warm-up for the first
test match tomorrow at
Manchester.
Sudhir Naik hit 76 not out,
and Farrokh Engineer 55 not
out as the Indians raced to a
target of 197 for 2 inside 155
minutes.
The Indians took advantage
of a generous declaration by
Brian Bolus, the Derbyshire
captain. The English team
batted on in the morning to
197 for 2 before Bolus
declared.
It was a good batting wicket
and the Derbyshire attack was
weakened by an injury to fast
bowler Alan Ward.
The Indians were on top of
their task from the start. The
opening batsmen, Solkar and
Naik, hurried to 48 in 35
minutes before Solkar was leg
before wicket to Fred
Swarbrook.
The second wicket
contributed a crucial 60 in
only 37 minutes.
Meanwhile, a fighting
century by South African star
Mike Procter failed to stop
Leicestershire gaining their first
victory of the season in the
English Championship.
Leicestershire beat
Gloucestershire by five
wickets. Procter, playing
boldly on a spinners wicket hit


102 for Gloucestershire in a
brave attempt to turn the
match.
But Procter's team were all
out for 224 and Leicestershire
were left to make 219 to win.
They got the runs comfortably,
John Steele leading the way
with 74 not out.
