More police transfers to come


By SIDNEY DORSETF
POLICE TRANSFERS
currently underway in several
New Providence and Freeport
departments of the force are
expected to be followed by
others with the resignation of
Asst. Commissioner of Crime,
Mr. John Crawley, who leaves
in September.
Reports that "a shake-up"
among top officers of the
force is presently being
carried out were termed
incorrect today by Police
Commissioner Salathiel H.
Thompson.
However, some changes
have been affected tem-


porarily due to the absence of
several officers, he said.
He also said that Ast.
Comm. Crawley's retirement
after 34 years with the police
force will bring a change
eventually but withheld
comment on who is likely to
be replacing the senior
officer.
His resignation is the only
one that he knows of he said,
as a counter to reports that
there were other resignations
pending.
Unconfirmed reports say,
however, that Asst. Comm.
Paul Thompson presently
commanding officer at
Freeport, Grand Bahama is


the person most likely to
assume the vacancy that will
be left with Mr. Crawley's
resignation.
Over the past three weeks,
several officers have been
transferred to other
departments to fill vacancies
caused by department heads
who have gone on leave.
Police Supt. Avery
Ferguson, who formerly
headed the Police Traffic
Branch, is the only officer
transferred who has actually
been, confirmed in his post,
Police Comm. Thompson
said.
Mr. Ferguson took over as
head of the Criminal


Gun law bid


to


beat


crime wave
SPURRDl) by the overwhelming increase in crimes ot violence, the Government is
to introduce Igi'klation in the House tomorrow to tighten up the country's gun laws.
But before they ~' into effect an amnesty period of at least one month will be allowed for the
surrender of illegal -Larnis after which prison sentences of up to 10 years may be meted out to
offenders under the amended Firearms Act.


The Bill seeks to amend the
1969 Act "so as to bringabout
firmer control over the
importation, possession and
use of all types of firearms,"
says the Bill in its appended
'Objects and Reasons,"
section:
Under the et*Ptini Act. no
one is permitted a revolver
without a special licence,
renewable annually at the
discretion of the Licensing
Authority. Henceforth
application to renew such a
licence must be made within
14 days after expiration of the
licence on December 31.
Any person bringing a
revolver into the Bahamas or
found in possession of an
unlicensed revolver is liable on
conviction of up to four years
imprisonment rather than the
two previously specified.
Exception will be made if
the court is satisfied that such
a person held a special licence
but did not renew it during the
two-week period or during the
ensuing six months period or
if there are "exceptional
mitigating circumstances."
In this case the court may,
in lieu of imprisonment,
impose a $ 1,000 fine.
If anyone purchases,
acquires or has in his
possession any firearm or
ammunition without a licence,
he faces a year's imprisonment
or $300 fine or both, instead
of six months or a $150 fine.
Air guns, air rifles and air
pistols (otherwise known as
B.B. guns), previously
exempted, will henceforth have
to meet the same qualifications
as firearms.
Also categorized as guns are
smooth bore single or double
barrelled guns not less than 20
inches long.
Any person acquiring,
purchasing or having in his
possession one of these guns
without licence will face a
year's imprisonment or a $300
fine or both double the
penalty previously prescribed.
Anyone found to be
trespassing in a building while
armed may be sentenced to six
years imprisonment, rather
than one year or a $600 fine.
A person found to have in
his possession a shortened
smooth bore gun or a
converted firearm of any type
is liable to 10 years
imprisonment Previously the
penalty was 18 months or
$300 fine o0 both.

Gunman in



record



shop raid


By ELLISTON RAHMING
A GUNMAN escaped with
about $160 from Dudley's
Record Shop yesterday after
holding up store employee
William Knowles.
The same gunman is believe
to have robbed Miss Deborah
Bethel, a secretary at Quality
House Upholstery, just minutes
after the first robbery.
At about 2 p.m. yesterday,
an armed man walked into
Dudley's Record Shop on the
corners of Mount Royal
Avenue and Rosetta St. He
asked Mr. Knowles for a pack
of guitar strings. While Mr.
Knowles looked for the strings,
the unmasked gunman walked
around in the store looking at
-the appli"nges.
When Mr. Knowles returned
to the counter where the man
was standing, a gun was
pointed at him. Mr. Knowles
attempted to pass the strings to
the "customer" only to hear "I
don't want any strings, I want
all the money in the register or
else Iwill shoot."
Mr. Knowles said he took
the gunman's threat as a joke
and therefore paid no
attention. "The gunman then
convinced me that he was
serious by pointing the gun in
my face and demanding that I
give him all the money in the
register."
While the store employee
hesitated to open the register,
the gunman went behind the
counter and opened the
register for himself. He took all
the money and began to make
his exit walking backwards.
Before he reached the door
he said, "I know that you will


call the police; well, when you
call them tell them that the
escaped prisoner, Victor Storr
did the robbery. Also let them
know that I have enough
money now to buy a revolver."
At about 2:15 p.m. a man,
believed to be the same
gunman, walked into Quality
Upholstery on Montrose Ave.
and demanded of Deborah
Bethel, the secretary, all the
cash that was in her drawer.
Miss Bethel told The
Tribune that she became
frightened and as a result,
threw the money that was in
the drawer to the "shirtless
man." He then asked her if she
had given him all the money;
her reply was yes. In disbelief,
9W I.gnman went to the drawer
and searched for himself. He
found the drawer empty.
Mr. Perry Bethel, brother of
Miss Bethel, seeing the gunman
going out of the store asked,
"Where are you going with my
money?" The robber's reply
was "Keep cool brother, keep
cool or else I will shoot."
Taking the robber's gun to
be "unreal" Mr. Bethel
followed him out of the store.
The gunman then fired a shot
that was not aimed at Mr.
Bethel but caused nearby
residents to come to the store
saying, "we heard a shot, we
heard a shot."
The gunman left the scene
driving car number NPD 103.
On Sunday an armed man
robbed Malone's Drug Store on
Shirley St. and it has been
speculated that it may very
well be the same robber.
Police are investigating the
robberies.


-IT'S VESCO

TIME

ONCE

AGAIN
MR. ROBERT Vesco, a
favourite object of the
member for Clarence Town,
has again come under
scrutiny in questions raised in
the House.
Mr. Michael Lightbour
has asked the Home Affairs
Minister to say whether Mr.
Vesco still holds a work
permit as senior officer-
director of Bahamas
Commonwealth Bank Ltd.,
and if not, on what date he
cease to hold such permit and
under what circumstances.
In addition Mr. Lightbourn
wants to know Mr. Vesco's
present status in the country.
Other questions by Mr.
Lightbour deal with the
rental of self-drive cars by
government during the
Commonwealth Parlia-
mentary Association
conference, the proposed bus
service from the airport, the
sale of the Sonesta Beach
Hotel to Wardair and
contracts awarded Guarantee
Builders, contractors for the
Hospital Eye Wing extension.
Mr. Lightboum has asked
for the name of the company
from whom the self-drive cars
were rented, the names of the
company's beneficial owners,
the number of cars rented
and the total amount of
money paid.
With regard to the bus
service, the representative has
requested government to say
whether this will be
implemented during this year
or next in view of the recent
request by the Taxi Cab
Union to discontinue talks on
the matter.
In another series of
questions Mr. Lightbourn has
asked why the Finance
Minister did not approve or
delayed approval of the sale
'io the Sonesta to Wardair,
and the terms and conditions
of sale which directly
involved government
approvals.
Works Minister Simeon
Bowe has also been asked to
inform the House of the total
number of contracts his
Ministry has signed or is
about to sign with Guarantee
Builders Ltd.
Mr. Lightbourn wants to
know the names of the jobs
referred to, the amount of
each contract and whether or
not tenders were invited.

HURRICANE
THERE will be a meeting
for persons who have
volunteered to assist Red Cross
during hurricane or disaster, at
St. George's Hall, Montrose
Avenue on Thursday, Aug. 1,
at 7:30 p.m.


Contract talks may stall


Bahamasair progress


BAHAMASAIR may shortly
face a roadblock in its drive to
financial stability, in the form
of pending contract talks with
the Airport, Airline and Allied
Workers Union.
The national airline is
expected to sign an agreement
"very shortly" recognizing the
AAAWU as bargaining agent
for the estimated 200 ground
staff at Bahamasair.
AAAWU president Reginald
Grant told The Tribune this
morning that his union has
already prepared its proposals
for the first contract, and he
expects to submit them to
Bahamasair management "early
next week," as soon as the
recognition agreement is
signed.
He charged that
Bahamasair's salary scale "is
ten years behind the aviation
n d ustry," and declared
improvements in that area were
high on the union's priority
list.
Pay adjustments could prove
very expensive for Bahamasair,
which is expected only this
month to record its first
monthly profit since launching
operations in June last year.
Mr. Grant declined at this
time to reveal the approximate
percentage wage increases the
union will be seeking.
Bahamassir's staff actually
totals about 400 persons, but
the recognition agreement Mr.
Grant expects to be finalized


By MIKE LOTHIAN
"very shortly" does not cover
management staff, pilots,
certain supervisory posts or out
island agents. The AAAWU will
represent mostly the ground
staff in both Nassau and
Freeport.
The recognition of the
AAAWU as bargaining agent for
Bahamasair employees comes
about a year after that
recognition was applied for by
the union.
Management initially
rejected the request for
recognition, and the AAAWU
early this year asked the
Labour Ministry to determine
whether the union was entitled
to recognition under the
Industrial Relations Act, which

union that has more than 50
percent of the persons in the
bargaining unit on its
membership roles.
The Ministry's certificate
that the AAAWU was entitled
to recognition was issued on
June 14. Mr. Grant said.
The Bahamasair recognition
has been the subject of
intcr-union controversy as
well. The Engineering and
General Union, representing
the Bahamas Electricity
Corporation's workers, is
known to have also applied for
recognition.
However, the Labour
Ministry has a policy, backed
by certain sections of the Act,
to restrict any one union's
activities to one industry.

numerous articles, will be on
sale and all funds will be used
for community improvements.
NEW POST
MR Martin L Cheshes,
previously in charge of the
American Embassy's
Commercial. Affairs, division,
left Nassau at the end of June
to take up a new post in
Dahomey, West Africa.
His replacement, who is
arriving shortly, is Miss Genta
Hawkins who has already
briefly visited the Bahamas.
She will take up her position at
the end of this month.


FILMING of the "Salty"
television series is continuing at
Montagu Film Studios despite
an unresolved dispute between
the studios and one of the
trainers of the sea lion Salty,
star of the show, studio chief
Kobi Jaeger said today.
Mr. Jaeger t,!d The Tribune
camera crews are shooting
scenes in which the sea lion
does not appear. He added
that, if necessary, the studios
can use the existing "miles and
miles" of film clips of Salty in
action.
Mr. Jaeger had been in New
York but flew back to Nassau
on Saturday shortly after the
dispute developed. He has been
hesitant to discuss the details
of the disagreement.


CAPTAIN TERRY H.
Daniels, 35, accused police and
prison officials of causing him
and certain members to be
interrogated and threatened by
U.S. drug enforcement agents
at the Fox Hill Prison when he
rounded off his testimony in
the $15-million hashish trial in
the Surpeme Court today.
Daniels, who took the
witness stand to be led in
evidence by Chief defence
counsel Hon. Eugene Dupuch,
Q.C., last Friday, said that he
did not believe that local or
foreign drug enforcement
agents had ever obtained the
permission of junior counsel,
S-ith Duncoinbe to intertIagJ
-himn.
During their questioning, the
six accused were represented
by attorney Duncombe,
Daniels said.
The captain of the 150-foot
"Sea Trader" which was found
carrying a $15-n-million cargo of
hashish on April 12 at Little
Sturrup Cay, ended his
testimony just prior to the
luncheon adjournment today.
iHe is jointly charged with
guitarist-cook Eddie Edwards,
25: chief engineer, Louis
Tomiselli, 23; first engineer.
Pichard Bennett, 28; second
engineer, Arnold Zuckerman,
41, and chief mate Jack
Kubatz.
Daniels made the
accusations during
re-examination by Mr. Dupuch.
In hi- cross-examination, he
told solicitor General T.
Langton Hilton he was not
under instructions to pay legal.
fees for himself and the other
accused from his employer.
When asked if Mr. Charles
Magowitz, a New York
attorney and part owner of the
"Sea Trader" had given such
instructions, Daniels said he
was "broke." He said he was
the captain of the "Tropic
Sea" boat, before he took
command of the "Sea Trader".
He said, however, that he
did not mean to infer that he
was not paying his own legal
fees. Asked if he knew who
was, he also told the court that
he did not.
Earlier cross-examination
also showed that the accused,
Daniels and Tomiselli, Kubatz
and Zuckerman had been
travelling together in early
January along with the ship's
owners Magowitz and Richard
Wallace.
In early January, Daniels
said he left Mathew Town
where the "Tropic Sea" was
docked for Ft. Lauderdale,
Florida. Also with him were
Kubatz, Tomiselli, Zuckerman
and the boat's owner, Mr.
Magowitz.
Kubatz got off in Tampa
and he went to New York
along with Tomiselli, Magowitz
and Zuckerman. In New York,
he returned to his home on
Staten Island, he said.
The) later met in Tampa
and stayed together for about
three or four days with
Magowitz being the first of the
group to leave, he said, under
cross-examination.
He denied that Richard
Wallace, owner of the "S'e
Trader" and Edwards migth
have also been at the motel
where they stayed around this
time.


He said today he was hoping
for a settlement no later than
the end of this week, possibly
as early as tomorrow.
He added that the dispute
probably would have been
settled earlier than this if it had
occurred at a film centre
overseas where labour-manage-
ment conciliation machinery is
embodied in existing guilds and
unions.
He expected "that kind of
machinery" to develop at
Montagu Film Studios as it
moves towards becoming what
he hopes will be the
"Hollywood of the East."'
The studios are scheduled to
complete 26 Salty episodes for
Twentieth Century Fox, for
screening over the net work
beginning in September.


He said that he was
interrogated by Federal Agents
at the C.I.D. office and they
indicated that they wanted him
to return to the U.S. to testify.
One of the men questioning
him was Charles Walker who
said he had "very good
connections" with the
Bahamas Government and
could get him released easily if
he was prepared to testify in
the U.S. about his "presumed
implications" in the hasish
deal.
Under re-examination that
followed by Mr. Duguch,
Daniels AccusId police, prison
authorities and. U S. f d *
gents with interrogating him
without obtaining the consent
of his attorney.
He said his attorney, Mr.
Duncombe was informed of
the incident and he wrote a
letter to government
authorities complaining of the
matter.
He also told the court that he
thought it improper to have
been questioned by the U.S.
federal agents on Bahamian
soil.
Acting Chief Justice James
Smith, however, stated that
there was no evidence led of
the accused being interrogated
and that the matter is one to
be taken up elsewhere.

No date for granting
independence has been set, but
political observers here predict
it will come soon.
Spinola said decolonization
will proceed differently in each
territory. "Each territory is a
specific case," Spinola said.
"They each have to be
treated separately. Therefore.
it is hard to establish general

MAKARIOS CALL TO U.S.
WASHINGTON- Archbishop Makarios, the ousted
President of Cyprus, Monday urged the United States to act
More decisively in bringing about a settlement on the
Mediterranean island republic.
He said the situation on Cyprus is getting worse because
Turkish forces are reinforcing their positions and widening
their hold on the island.
"If the United states is following a policy of

Makarios made his remarks upon arriving in Washington

He told newsmen: "The United States attitude towards
the Turkish invasion should be more clear and decisive.
"If the United States fails to do so, there will be a
possibility of serious disturbances."

-MAMA CASS-

DEATH

RIDDLE

REMAINS
LONDON Britain's top
pathologist said after an
autopsy today that further
tests would be needed to
determine how "Mama" Cass
Elliot, the sweet-voiced
238-pound pop singer, died.
Prof. Keith Simpson
gave no details of his
examin:'ion, but said she did
no appear to have died from
natural causes. He did not
elaborate.
Police said an inquest will
be held at Westminster
Coroner's court tomorrow.
Simpson's statement came
only hours after the singer's
doctor, Anthony Greenburg,
told newsmen: "I think the
post mortem will probably
show that she died as a result
of choking on a sandwich
while lying in bed and
inhaling her own vomit.
"She was a very big lady
and I could not rule out the
possibility of a heart
attack."(AP)

Killer

floods

hit

millions
DACCA Floods are bring-
ing destruction and death
across more than half of
Bangladesh, with 41 persons
reported dead, more than 10
million people affected and
about 100,000 houses
damaged.
Official sources estimate
90 percent of this season's
crops in 11 of the country's 19
districts has been damaged
beyond recovery. Epidemics
are threatening health
conditions in the affected
areas.
In Netrokona every inch of
land is it, under water in what
is described as "the century's
worst flood."
In all, 10,000 square miles
are under water and major
rivers continue to rise. Most
rivers were flowing several feet
above danger level, officials
said.
Onrushing water from the
adjoining Indian states of
Assam, Tripura and Meghalaya
is causing havoc in Sylhet and
adjoining areas in three
districts.
Prime Minister Sheikh
Mujibur Rahman on Monday
flew over the flooded areas and
is now staying in Natre to
supervise evacuation and relief
work in northern districts
where the flooding is the worst
for several decades.
A Government Minister who
visited affected areas in
Mymenisngh Monday later told
newsmen the flooding was the
worst he has seen since 1954
when three-quarters of the
country went under water,
causing massive damage and
loss of life. (AP)
FISHING CHARGE
GALVESTON, Tex. A
Cuban shrimp trawler master
has been. arraigned in federal
court here on charges of fishing
inside United States territorial
waters.


WASHINGTON President
Nixon's top aides, casting aside
the rose-tinted classes with
which they had publicly
viewed the impeachment scene,
now seem reconciled to the
uncertainties that lie ahead for
their boss.
After weeks of issuing
optimistic statements that
many observers felt were
tinged with unreality, they
Acknowledged the seriousness
of the President's plight after
the judiciary committee of the
House of Representatives
approved its first article of
impeachment.
Alexander M. Haig jr., the
White House staff chief,
signaled the change in telling
newsmen Sunday night that
"very severe losses" in the past
week make Nixon's chances of


avoiding impeachment by the
house "more uncertain."
While Haig continued to
express confidence the House
would vote against
impeachment, he qualified his
assessment with words of
caution. If a vote were taken
now, for example, he said the
outcome would be "very
close."
Although Nixon's press
spokesmen, at formal news
briefings, continue to express
unqualified confidence in the
final outcome, deputy press
secretary Gerald L. Warren
acknowledged Monday that the
President faces "a very serious
and volatile situation" in the
house words he would not
have used a week ago.
Haig seemed positively eager
to give five reporters aboard


VOTES BRING THREATS

public reaction generally is
favourable.

Maine, said his office receive I a
threat Monday morning that he

for extra protection at

I'll fight charges,

says Connally


WASHINGTON John B.
Connally, indicted for bribery,
perjury and conspiracy, denies
any guilt and says he will fight
the charges.
The former Treasury
Secretary was indicted Monday
by a Watergate Grand Jury,
accused of taking two $5,000
bribes from milk producers and
then conspiring to cover up the
payment with perjured
testimony.
"1 deny again that I am
guilty of any wrongdoing and I
am confident that I will be
completely vindicated of these
charges, "Connally said in a
statement issued through his
Houston law office.
Connally is the fourth
former member of President
Nixon's Cabinet to be charged
with a crime. He has hired
noted criminal lawyer Edward
Bennett Williams to run his
defence.
The grand jury accused
Connally of two counts of
bribery, one count of
conspiracy to obstruct justice
and two counts of perjury. He
faces a maximum of 19 years
in jail and $50,000 in fines if
covtcted on all counts.
The grand jury accused
Connally of taking two $5,000
payments from his friend, Jake
Jacobsen, a Texas lawyer
working for Associated Milk


Producers, Inc., the nation's
largest diary-farmer co-
operative.
The money allegedly was
paid for Connally's help in
getting President Nixon to raise
federal milk price supports in
March i971.
Jacobsen also was indicted
on a single bribery count,
carrying ,a maximum penalty of
Iwo years in jaul and a $10,000
fine.


threatening telephone warning
that the congressman had
better check his mail carefully.
Cohen Railsback and the
other four 'Republicans on the
committee all said they
received sometimes angry
criticism after their vote
Saturday night to recommend
the President's impeachment.
Several said much of the ire
came from persons who
accused them of turning their
backs on Nixon, rather than
being based on contentions
that the evidence did not
warrant impeachment.
Over all, they said,
agreement with their votes
outweighed opposition in,
letters, telegrams and tel-
phone calls.


TV Godfather

THE NBC television net-
work said it has purchased
rights to "The Godfather," the
1973 box-office smash starring
Marion Brando, and will air it
in November this year.


Air Force One his revised
assessment of Nixon's position
during the President's flight
here from California. And he
did so immediately after having -
a lengthy session with Nixon
aboard the plane.
During the same flight, press
secretary Ronald L. Ziegler
acknowledged "this is a tough
time" but said: "Nobody is
giving up."
Ziegler's restraint seemed
uncharacteristic. He appeared
friendlier and more relaxed
than during much of Nixon's
16-day California stay.
Barely a week earlier, Ziegler
had produced presidential
counselor Dean Burch for a
news conference at which
Burch declared that he would
not be surprised if all
Republican members of the
house judiciarycommittee
voted against recommending
impeachment.
Six Republicans took an
opposite position when the
first committee vote on an
impeachment article was


recorded Saturday night.
Burch's statement, and
others in a like vein from
Nixon aides, had some
onlookers shaking their heads
and wondering if Nixon and his
associates had lost tough with
reality.
Haig's temperate reappraisal,
and Ziegler's acknowledgement
that times are tough,
presumably were calculated
with some care.
The deputy press secretary,
asked if the White House had
taken a head liount of
impeachment sentiment in the
house, said: "There may be
some people who are mentally
counting votes" but that t
would not make sense t
conduct a formal head count
before the judiciary committee
completed its work. (AP

N.S. oil firms up sterling


By ETIENNEDUPUCH
LONDON, May 22 From time to time I hand on free of
charge information to my readers that may be useful to some
of them.
Some time before the fuel crisis developed I told you that my
financial adviser in London had told me that sterling was a good
bet for the future. Because of the uncertainty of the major
currencies I told you that I handed this information on for what
it might be worth. I didn't feel too sure that he was right.
It now looks as though he was right because, in spite of the
fuel crisis that threatens economic collapse for some of the major
industrial nations ... especially Italy which is now virtually
bankrupt ... sterling is holding up'surprisingly well.
Figures in The Financial Times of April 22nd. show that all the
major nations, with the exception of Germany and the U.S., are
dangerously in the red. These figures predict that Germany will
be slightly in the back, the U.S. will break even in its balance of
payments figures. lis feared that France's reserves might be
wiped out in 15 months.
Germany is an amazing country. Although she has to import
the bulk of her raw material still she is able to maintain such a
high exportbusiness that she will come out in the black. The
probable reason is that her products are of such high standard
that they, will sell even at a high price. And the German people
work hand. Seldom one reads of strikesin that country.
I think I told you some time ago that Germany's Lufthansa is
one of the finest air services if not the finest in the world. I
must say that 1 was disappointed in Air France by which we
travelled from Tokyo to Paris a few days ago.
British manufacture used to be supreme. This is no longer so.
Labour unionism has brought down the standard. British
workmen no longer take the pride in their workmanship for
which British manufacture was noted in pre-second world war
days.
What then keeps sterling afloat?
The simple explanation is that discovery of oil and gas in the
North Sea has put Britain in a strong economic position for the
future. She will be the only nation in Europe that will be
completely independent of foreign fuel supplies.
The official estimate of the fuel to be taken from the North
Sea is about 2,500 million pounds sterling. The oil companies
place double this value on this great deposit of fuel.
Britain's balance of payments is in a very bad way at the
preserit time but it is expected that oil supplies from the North
Sea vwll start to come in by the end of this year and that Britain
will be completely independent of foreign supplies by 1980.
Because of this fact Britain can borrow enough money to tide her
over the present emergency. By contrast, the banks have closed
their doors on Italy. Hence the strength of sterling today.

I told you recently that there will be a great drain of young
people from Britain this year ... and I also forecast that if Labour
won the election many of the substantial families would move
out.
A friend of mine in England who had a house valued at nearly
300,000 pounds sterling has sold it for 181 thousand and is
getting out of England.
Another friend has asked me to give him a report on the
Algarve in Portugal because he feels that he must move too. He
had always declared that he would never leave England but now
he feels he must. This kind of thing happens. I never thought I
would leave the Bahamas. For years I turned down all kinds of
attractive offers by Lord Beaverbrook to join him in London
because I felt that my duty was to the Bahamas.

Another interesting bit in The Daily Telegraph of May 24th
reports that more than seven million pounds sterling of public
money has been spent on improving and staffing President
Nixon's private homes. This information is contained in the
report of a committee of the House of Representatives. "Among
the expenditure noted is an outlay of 73,000 pounds sterling on
the Bahamas estate of Mr. Nixon's friend, Mr. Robert Abplanalp,
which the President occasionally visits," the report states.

We have arrived in London just in time for the great furore
aroused by Mr. Harold Wilson's action in including his secretary
Mrs. Marcia Williams in a new list of fifteen Life Peerages.
Mrs. Williams' name ... and that of members of her family ...
was recently involved in a lands deal scandal. Mr. Wilson was also
dragged into this affair because his name was forged on a letter in
connection with this transaction.
Mr. Wilson not only vigorously defended the conduct of his
secretary in this affair but now he has made her a Baroness!
An extraordinary fact is that, when it was rumoured.some
months ago that Mr. Wilson had recommended his devoted
secretary to the Queen for this honour, the report was denied by
the Government's Information Services.
Most of the criticism for this strange decision by the Prime
Minister has come from members of his own Parliamentary group,
especially from extremists who feel that the House of Lords and
the Honours system should be abolished.


This appointment has come as a shock to a large section of the
nation who felt that some disciplinary action should have been
taken over the lands deal scandal.
This was a bold action for Mr. Wilson to take but it is clear that
he feels that his position is strong with the grass roots so much so
that it is believed that he will call an election some time soon.
Present forecasts are that Labour will win with a substantial
increase in its majority. (This was the position in May when this
editorial was written. However up-to-date polls show Labour and
Conservatives running neck and neck with the Liberals having
increased from 13 to 22% of the poll).
This is why people, who do not approve of the change of
standards in Britain, are getting out of the country because
they feel that there isn't anything they can do to check the rot.

What has already happened to the Press in the US. ... and is
now happening to the Press in Britain ... is an example of how
labour unionism is destroying industry in these two great


EDITOR, The Iribune,
I am a German, who, at the
end of a four-week vacation in
the Uhited States, brought my
girlfriend to your lovely town,
Nassau for the last ten days of
my holiday..
On Thursday we will leave
your beautiful island,_ but
before going I want to let
Bahamians know something,
which, in my opinion, is
extremely important for the
future of your city and all your
other islands.
You know, when a German
such as I (age 35) is planning
his summer vacation he has a
fantastic choice of where to go.
Because our German D-Mark is
now, I think, one of the
strongest currencies in the
world, Germans can go
anywhere not only to
Europe, but anywhere in the
world. For example, I have
travelled all over the world
(except Australia) and,
therefore, in the springtime it
is always a big thing to make
up our minds where to go.
If we are planning a real
swimming fortnight, we are
naturally looking for
everything a swimmer needs -
blue skies, warm and clear
Waters and beautiful beaches.
All these things you have in the
Bahamas. And so, after passing
through the Bahamas three
times on the way to the U.S.
we decided that this time we
would stay here for what we
hoped would be a fantastic
swimming holiday.
And now, I am finally
coming to the point. What
nature has given to the
Bahamians is great, but please,


please, please KEEP IT
CLEAN. Each day we were
deeply shocked when we went
through your city to the
beach: cans, cans, cans, bottles,
bottles, bottles.
At the public beach to the
left side of the Sheraton British
Colonial everybody throws
away his can or bottle when it
is empty: not only on the
beach, but in the water.
Perhaps some people have
seen me in the past few days at
this beach, because I made it
my business while here to clean
YOUR beaches. Yesterday I
bought a swimming mask to
see better under the water. I
now wish I hadn't done this,
because I have now seen the
whole drama hundreds and
hundreds of cans and bottles.
Perhaps some of you who
have read my letter up to this
point think that empty cans
and bottles on the beach and in
the water is not the main
problem of the Bahamas today.
Please believe me: the fortune
of your islands and the reason
why we, the money spending
tourist come here, is for your
nature your CLEAN nature.
We, for our part were so
shocked that we nearly
considered never coming back
here for a swimming vacation,
because until now only my


democracies.
The number of daily newspapers in New York has been
reduced to three ... and even these three are now under heavy
pressure.
In Britain daily newspapers are now folding up fast. The
Beaverbrook press has recently discontinued publication of all its
newspapers in Scotland.
In a recent debate in the House of Commons Conservative
Opposition Leader Edward Heath said that the British Press was
overmanned by 10,000 workers ... he added that this
overmanning meant an additional wages bill of about 40 million
pounds sterling a year. Some people believed, he said, that three
or four of the nine national daily newspapers would disappear in
the coming year.
Winding up the debate, Prime Minister Harold Wilson said there
was widespread agreement that changes in the law in matters
affecting the press were necessary.
The law of contempt was undoubtedly too wide and had in the
past inhibited "very necessary press comments."
Mr. Wilson declared: "Our aim is to give the press as much
freedom as possible on matters of public interest, while leaving
the individual better protected from harmful intrusions into his
privacy which can do no public good."
Earlier, Mr. Heath said there was general agreement that the
national press was overmanned by almost 25 per cent and many
would argue between 30 and 40 per cent.
One national newspaper in London employed 4,000 people
when it could operate efficiently with 3000.
This unhealthy state of affairs, which will cause many
newspapers to close down, is the result of what is known as
"feather-bedding" by the unions.
Union men are now trying to negotiate the purchase of the
Beaverbrook newspapers that have ceased publication in
Scotland. They feel they can make a success of the operation
because they can do it with a staff of 600. Under the
Beaverbrook management unions had forced them to employ a
staff of nearly 2000.
**ee****e*
Recently I told you about the valuable publication of a
complete set of Churchill's works which was being prepared
mostly for libraries and educational institutions. The number was
very limited and so only a few copies were available for individual
subscribers.
Now another work of historical importance is being
undertaken by the Rt. Hon. Lord Mountbatten of Burma. It is an
issue of medals which will record the glorious history of Great
Britain and the Sea.
Subscriptions to this issue closed on May 31st. Delivery of the
medals will be at the rate of one a month starting in June.
According to the announcement, "the vast panorama of British
history is memorably presented in a magnificent collection of 100
solid sterling silver medals. Each medal will be a scene sculptured
in the fine detail that is the mark of a master sculptor. Each will
measure 44 mm in diameter and will be hall-marked at the
London Assay Office.
'The Mountbatten Medallic History of Great Britain and the
Sea will be'struck by John Pinches, minters of fine medals and
coins for over a century. Each medal will be struck from specially
engraved dies that impart an incredible precision of detail."
At the rate of one medal a month it will take 8 years and 4
months to complete the series. Profits from the undertaking will
go to establish the Mountbatten Fund in support of the United
World Colleges of which His Lordship is the President.
****)*t
Today I phoned the office of the Commonwealth Press Union
to check on plans for the conference which opens in Hong Kong
on October 2nd.
Delegates from all over the British Commonwealth of Nations
will assemble in London about mid-September for 'a flight to
Malaysia. The group will tour Malaysia and Singapore before
arriving in Hong Kong for the meeting on October 2nd.
An addition to the original plan is that, after the Hong Kong
meeting, the group hopes to go to mainland China.
The I.P.I. had hoped to visit mainland China after its recent
meeting in Japan but arrangements could not be completed with
the government in Peking in time to include China in the
post-conference tour.
The C.P.U. office feels that they will be able to complete the
arrangements in time and so, if we take in this tour, it may not be
possible for us to get to St. Lucia for the Caribbean Press meeting
and to Caracas for the Inter American Press Association meeting.
We cin always go to St. Lucia and Caracas which we have
already visited several times but we can't afford to miss a chance
to go to mainland China to which it has not been easy for groups
of pressmen to gain access.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
To travel hopefully s a better thing than to arrive, and the true
success is to labour. STEVENSON.


heart hurt when I saw all this -
I don't want to get my feet
hurt too!
So, dear Bahamians, perhaps
there IS a relationship between
hotels closing down and clean
beaches and waters. I love my
German Becks Beer, but never
as an empty can on the beach
or in the water!
Finally let me say this. I
have written this letter to you,
the Bahamian people, because I
love your islands and I don't
want to think that in the near
future everything here will be
dirty covered with cans,
bottles, rubbish and litter.
I could have written this
letter to the editor in my
hometown, Berlin. Our largest
newspaper is read by 250,000
Berliners, and this could cost
you some hundred visitors.
This I don't want.
Please, dear Bahamians,
please don't throw another can
or bottle in your beautiful
waters because this is your
fortune- now, tomorrow and
in the future.

I amsr came right l and asked her if she was a virgin
became from her action I was sure she was. I was so glad
she had "saved herself" for marriage because that was the
one thing I wanted in a wife. .
Well, after ie were married I found out that she lied to
me. She refuses to talk about It, and I feel that I have been
tricked. I think she withheld the truth from me because she
knew I'd never marry her if I knew. I was really crazy
about this girl, and she seemed to care for me, too, but
now everything is ruined.
We aren't getting along -at all, and t's all because she
deceived me about her virginity. It's gotten to the point
where I feel divorce is the only answer. Please help me.
CHEATED
DEAR CHEATED: She didn't le to you, you jumped to a
conclusion. Too bad you place such a high priority at
virginity because there is no way she can get hers back.
However, "never have loved before" Isn't the most impor-
tant thing a woman can bring to a marriage.
Her past is her business, and she owes you no explana-
tlens, so f you want to save your marriage, get some
counseling.

Problems? Youll feel better if you get it off your chest.

DEAR ABBY: Recently I met a guy who sys he loves
me. When I ask him why, he says it's because I lawe a pair
of pro basketball season tickets and can pilot an arpiane to
take us to out-of-town games. He says it's also because I
give fabulous backrabs.
I care for him very much; but am wondering if this
relationship can last. Strange as this seems, It' true.
UP IN THE AIR
DEAR UPi You sound easy to love. The elationshg
should last as long as you emn et thee pro baskethell
tickets, can fly him to out-oftown game, and provide him
with backruba.
DEAR ABBY: I have a 22-year-old sister who has been
married a year and has a small baby. Her husband is a
professional shoplifter. He sas he's been in the business for
20 years. He rips off everything from a package of cigarettes
to an $8,000 houseboat. He braL about it. She has a
two-carat diamond and a housau of furniture which he
has obtained through shoplifting. It's inbelieveable what
this man can pick up.
I am worried about my sister. She lives in another state.
When I saw her last I told her she was oolsh to live with a
man who might be sent to prison. heut laughed and said
he is too smart to get caught, and besides dl he could get is
a $100 fine.
Is she mentally sick? I am 28, married to a good man and
have a fine family, and I am worried. Is there anything I can
do? BIG SISTER
DEAR SIS: Tell your sister that she is mistaken if she
thinks all he can get is a $100 fine for grand larceny. And if
she just "laughs" when you try to set her straight, she
could be mentally sick.
DEAR ABBY: My fiance is a divorced man. His "ex"
calls him once a week without fal "to talk." They have no
children, so I don't know what they have to talk about. (She
is still unmarried.)
My fiance says he doesn't mind her calling him because
he appreciates knowing that she is okay.
He is very good to me, but these alls from his "ex" every
week irritate me. I would like your opinion. "R"
DEAR' 'R": In my opinion, your fiance appears to be a
very kind and considerate man. He's not married yet. If his
"ex" continues to call him, and he continues to "not mind"
after he's married to you, write agaln, and I may have a
different opinion.

THE TRIBUNE-. Tuesday, July 30, 1974


By Nigel Cumberbatch


CARACAS, VENEZUELA Nine countries from widely
separated geographic regions presented the third United
Nations Law Of The Sea Conference Monday with a
broad-range working paper containing general concepts for
a future treaty on the oceans.
The working paper, presented at a plenary session, was
not meant to "present final solutions," but to reflect a
"broad conceptual approach to the fundamental problems"
facing the conference and to create "a framework for
discussion," a spokesman for the nine nations said.
The sponsors of the paper are Canada, Chile, Iceland,
India, Indonesia, Mauritius, Mexico, New Zealand and
Norway.


Some 5,000 official delegates and observers representing
148 nations began the ten-week meeting here on June 20 to
work out a global treaty on the use and protection of the
seas.
"We are at the half-way point of this session of the Law
of The Sea Conference and we have yet to agree on a single
draft article.' said J. Alan Beesley, head of the Canadian
delegation, at Monday's plenary session.
"It is for this reason more than any other that this paper
is being put forward at this time as a possible basis for
negotiation," Beesley said.
"This document is not intended as a substitution for any
of the proposals by one or more of the co-sponsors and is
being put forth without prejudice to their declared national


position," he said.
"It is the firm conviction of the f
that the law of the future mudt belt .
imaginative concepts, stck a th
patrimonial sea and the cowomn llspi
the same time retaining thlo
relevant Monday as they wer as t '
devised,"he aid.
"The paper is based oa the ,f-
territorial sea linked organicay mu H '$ib
patrimonial sea extending 200 ndmU fsoe t
the territorial sea," aid the chief CanUadan tFiN
while the traditional concept of idL.
territorial sea is retained, it is viab oia d.ly
extension of coastal state jIateiolul as

GOLD SOARS
The price of gold soared on
Europe's main bullion mar-
ket Monday and dealers said
the main factor was the
recommendation by a U.S.
Congressional panel to impeach
President Nixon
The U.S. dollar steadied,
however, after weakness earlier
in the day.
In London gold closed at
158 dollars an ounce, up 8.50
dollars from Friday's close. In
Zurich late dealings in gold
soared matching 57 dollars an
ounce compared with 149
dollars Friday.
Dealers said the im-
peachment issue had prompted
speculation that the dollar
might weaken and that gold
would be a better investment.

8 THB TRIBUNE TuMdy,Jea 3, ,174


NEW YORK The U.S. oil
companies, emerging from
their most profitable six
months in history, will find it
hard to continue the financial
growth during the last half of
the year, analysts predict.
The reasons for the earning
gains in .the first half are
wearing off, they say, and signs
indicate greater price
competition in the industry.
A substantial slowing in the
growth of the petroleum
market, plus the sizable
earnings gains in the last half of
1973 should cut into the rate
of gain in profits during the
last half of this year, argues
Charles Maxwell, a stock
analyst for C. J. Lawrence.
During 1975 some
companies should continue to
register gains and others
declines from their 1974 net
income levels, other analysts
say.
For just over a week the oil
companies have been reporting
sharply higher earnings for the
second quarter and first half. a
continuation of the increased
profits that started in the third
quarter of last year and have
continued to build since.
Exxon ('orp tor example,
the world's leading oil
company and the nation's
second largest industrial firm
behind General Motors.
reported first half earnings
alter taxes of $1.56 billion. up
53 per cent from the
year-earlier period
Ixxcin's earnings, like those
of some ol the other firms.
exceeded any lull-year earnings
for any year prior to 1973.


Also reporting strong gains
were Texaco Inc., whose first
half net rose 98 per cent over
the 1973 level; Mobil Oil corp.,
up 84 per cent; Gulf, ahead 50
per cent: Standard Oil Co. of
Indiana, up 106 per cent, and
Atlantic Richfield Co., up 97
per cent from the 1973 period.
The large percentage gains
over 1973, in some cases do
not reflect historical
performance. Arco's 1973
first-half net for example, was
only 14 per cent above that
reported in the like period of
1971.
Despite domestic price
controls, which limited gains
from refining and marketing
operations, the oil companies
were able to earn sizably more
from higher crride oil prices,
both here and abroad.
In the past year foreign
crude prices have quadrupled
as a result of shortages and
action by the producing
countries, while average
domestic prices more than
doubled.
In addition strong chemical
sales and so-called inventory
profits helped boost many
companies' net. Inventory
profits measure the higher
value of goods still in storage in
a time of rising prices.
Now there is some evidence
that higher prices have
prompted increased production
and less demand, the classic
signpost of a lower prices and
lower profits.
Petroleum demand in the
United States is down 3P. per
cent from last year, says the
chief economist for the
Conti;i;entll Oil Co., Sam
Schwart/. In Iuropc it's off 8
per ir.nt, he says.
Though Schwartz expects
demand to pick up the rest of
the year, it still will lag behind
1973. But domestic gasoline
:onr, gumptionn may only
increase 2 per cent a year
through 1980, he adds.
Schwart/' boss, Conoco
chairman Howard Blauvelt,
sees this dampening in demand,
plus production increases,
causing a drop in world crude
oil prices "not exceeding one
or two dollars a barrel."
Any weakening in profits
during the second half is bound
to help the industry shrug off
its biggest worry, congressional
tax reform.
Already there is feeling
among some security analysts
and oil executives that the
representatives concerns with
impeachment will delay if not
kill passage of "punitive" tax
mneaslres introduced during the
heal and passion of the energy
crisis.

"The high profits came into
the news last winter almost
violently, and there was quite
naturally a reaction to them."
says John Winger, an oil
economist with New York's
Chase Manhattan Bank. "But
now people have had a chance
to cool off. They've become
conditioned to these earnings."

The United States and
several other countries have
said they ire studying the
exact amount and nature of
the contributions they expect
to make. The Soviet union,
its Warsaw Pact allies and
several Arab oil-producing
countries have not replied.
More than S1 billion has
been pledged so far. with
most potential donors
declaring the actual amount
of their contributions would
depend on how much the rest
of the world gives through
U.N. channels.
The largest pledges so far
to the U.N. special fund or to
U.N. assistance agencies are
from Iran, the nine European
Economic Community
countries, the United Arab
Emirates. Canada, Japan and
Venezuela.
The latest announced
contribution is from an Arab


oil and gas-producing country,
Algeria, which took the
initiative in calling the special
General Assembly session.

ANGUILLA PROBLEM
CASTRIES Prime Minister
Michael Manley of Jamaica and
Foreign Affairs Minister Sonny
Ramphal of Guyana have been
asked to attempt to resolve the
Anguilla problem.
Manley says they will ask on

attempt to find a solution.

about the political relationship

aked as he opened the panel's

state of the American
economy.
Rush, who mid he has
spoken almost daily since his
appointment last May, replied
that many Presidents, including
Nixon, have been able to
conduct the business of their
office while under "serious
siege" from their critics.
'In my opinion the
American people are so deeply
concerned about the economy
that they are anxious to
cooperate with the President
and respond to leadership," he
said.


UNITED NATIONS, N.Y.
- Kuwait, one of the
wealthiest oil-producing
nations, has declined to
contribute to a U.N.-sponsor-
ed emergency aid programme
for countries hardest hit by
swollen fuel prices.
"Kuwait, being dependent
on a depletable source .of
income, has to endeavor to
achieve development and
growth ... Accordingly,
Kuwait finds herself in a
position that does not allow
her to contribute to the
special fund," declared a
Kuwait note to Secretary-
General Kurt Wald-heim
released over the weekend.
It was the bluntest
rejection so far made public
of Waldheim's May 9 appeal
in behalf of the emergency
programmes set up by a
special session of the General
Assembly.

began as a protege of Lyndon
P. Johnson in the late 1930s
when LBJ was struggling to
convince the voters of central
Texas to send him to Congress.
The son of an impoverished
Texas farmer, Connally
managed Johnson's early
campaigns, including the
controversial 87-vote Senate
victory in 1948. He nominated
LBJ for President at the 1956,
1960 and 1964 National
Democratic Conventions and,
in January 1973. eulogized the
former President at his funeral.

private life apparently bored
him, and he responded quickly
to President Nixon's offer to
become Treasury Secretary,
holding the job for 18 months.
His decision to head the
"Democrats for Nixon"
campaign in 1972 and his 1973
announcement that he was
abandoning the Democrats to
become a full-fledged member
of the Republican Party were
generally considered steps
toward a 1976 run for ihe
presidency. Connally main-
tained, however, that he sought
no elective office.
Married and the father of
three, Connally joined up with
the Republicans at a time when
the tide of Watergate was
beginning to run high.
Observers saw typical
shrewdness in the timing of
Connally's conversion. iHe
would thus gain later support
from Nixon stalwarts, the
reasoning went, and would
appear less of a political
opportunist by signing on
when the going was rough.
On Monday, Connally said
he was innocent and declared,
"I will be completely
vindicated of these charges."
He is the fourth Cabinet
member from the Nixon
administration to be indicted
by a federal grand jury. (AP)

AN A.P.N|WS ANALTIU


By R. Gregory Nokes
JIDDA, SAUDI ARABIA -
Whether Americans like it or
not, oil producing nations
expect to invest their vast oil
wealth where they want and in
the amounts they want.
If that means buying
General Motors stock to gain
control of the auto firm, then
oil producing nations like
Saudi Arabia expect to be free
to do it.
The Saudis who may have
up to 20 billion dollars to
invest in foreign markets this
year are genuinely puzzled
by fears in the United States
that they minht obtain control
of major U.S. corporations by
purchasing a majority of
shares.
"I don't know why you have
that fear," said Sheik Ahmed
Zaki Yamani, the Saudi oil
minister.
"You should be extremely
happy if we decide to do this
because there are so many
countries on earth who have
been extremely enthusiastic to
get Saudi Arabia to come and
invest in their equity market,"
he added. The equity market is
another term for the stock
market.
Yamani's view was echoed
by other Saudi officials in
interviews here. They were
noticeably irritated at sug-
gestions there would be
something objectionable in
Saudi control of U.S.
corporations.
As one American banker
here said: "For years, I have
been trying to justify American
ownership of foreign
enterprises. And suddenly
Americans are saying it would
be wrong to have foreign
ownership of American
corporations. It's madness."


by oil producing nations are
staggering. They range as high
as 70 billion dollars this year,
200 billion dollars in two years
and over one trillion dollars by
1985.
Since the bulk of this money
will come from the big oil
consuming nations, such as the
United States, Japan and
European countries, it will
represent a net outflow of
wealth from the developed
world.
It is essential to the
economies of the developed
world that the money be
reinvested so it can be used
again.
So far, the oil producing
nations have not invested
heavily in the U.S. stock
market because the market has
not been an attractive
investment.
Most Saudi investments -- an
estimated 8 billion to 9 billion
dollars so far are in
short-term investments offering


a high return in the'United
States, Saudi banking officials.
indicated.
udis also are expected
to invest several billion dollars
soon in special U.S.
government securities. An
announcement probably will
be made this week. But these
securities would only absorb a
fraction of what the Saudis have
available.
When and if the U.S.
stock market becomes an
attractive investment then the
Saudis, Kuwaitis and others
probably will shift a portion of
their oil money into U.S.
corporate issues.
Even if oil-producing nations
do buy control of General
Motors, or some other major
U.S. corporation, they won't
shut it down or move it to
Saudi Arabia, assert American
and Saudi officials here.
They will be just as
interested in turning a profit as
U.S. stockholders, say the
officials. (AP)

-ON


Referring to talk in Congress
that there should be some
restrictions to the amount of
foreign ownership of a
domestic corporation, am-
bassador James E. Akins
said, "if we do that, we might
as well give up and go home."
Akins and other U.S.
officials here believe it is
imperative for the United
States to make attractive
investment opportunities
available to Saudi Arabia, Iran,
Kuwait'and other oil producing
nations.
If the oil producing nations
can't invest their vast surplus
wealth profitably now, they
almost certainly will cut back
on their production until such
a time as they can, the officials
said.
Such a move would reduce
the supply of oil, drive oil
prices higher and make a bad
world financial situation even
worse, they added.

CARROLL RIGHTER'S



0res .IO CamoM Riifr Inotuw
GENERAL. TENDENCIES: Anything tht
\ requires sped and understaning fa vored n
a.m., so be up and doing early; later you find obstacles begin
to arise and it is best during late day and evening that you
force no issues since trouble can result and most person
become grouchy, noncooperative.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Plan new activities early, then
start the work required. Get that correspondence out early,
also. Go right to the point.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to My 20) making out checks and doing
the important Work early saves time for studying into
information you need later in the day. Make collections. Write
letters after lunch.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Coming to a new agreement
with an associate is fine in a.m., but then be sure to carry
through with your share of work required.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Cooperating with
fellow workers on some plan in am. is favored, then carry
through with new appeals later in the day. Use that smile more
to gain favor.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Make the a.m. a bright and
sparkling one, then plan for the amusements that are quiet but
enjoyable. Use all that charm in right avenues.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Tackle home affairs early
since later you have much work of importance to handle. Put
new plan in operation vigorously.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Come to a good agreement
with associates about policy affairs, then start the detailed
work. Do not quibble over little things.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Get your monetary position
improved in a.m., then check papers for accuracy. Some
financial decision you have to make can be helped by
discussing with an expert.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) In a.m., go after
whatever is of a personal nature, since evening finds it
difficult. Talk over agreements with partner over the coffee
cups. Hold temper.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Get expert's okay on
your future course of action. Then get routine work out of the
way quickly. Assist one who comes to you for help.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Being more affectionate
with friends in a.m. brings more rapport and fine results now.
Give them good ideas where entertainment is concerned.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Get into any work that is of
importance where your career is concerned in a.m. and
become more successful Then go through with some plan you
have made.


IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY... he or she will
quickly understand what others have in mind and can make
plans with them for group ventures that prove successful. Give
a course of education that will take in many philosophies and
New Era ideas as well, and give an opportunity to travel while
young. The career starts early here; the latter years are then
slow and should be spent in retirement comfortably.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

By GLADSTONE THURSTON
UNLESS THE Bahamas
Baseball Association c raise
over S11,300 this week, they
will have to cancel their trip to
the National Baseball Congress
tournament in Wichita, Kansas.
Mr. Oswald Brown, pre-
sident of the B.B.A. told a
press conference at the Eagle
Rock Club yesterday that it
will cost the Association more
than $14,000 to send the
Bahamas' contingent. They
have only $2,700.
Moreover, the B.B.A. is in
debt $4,000 to Empire Airline
which they used to transport
teams to various playing sites
in the Family Islands.
"it is ominously clear to us
now that unless we are able to
get individual sponsors for the
members of our Wichita team,
the Bahamas Baseball
Association will have to reach
the very painful decision to
cancel our plans to go to
Wichita," Mr. Brown said. The
team is scheduled to leave on
Monday.
The president continued
that because the Bahamas is

tournament "to default would
mean that it would take several
years before we are again
accepted into the N.B.C.
tournament."
in recapping the recently
ended series, Mr. Brown said
that the expenses involved in
including the Bimini Marlins
and Freeport's Classic Bucks in
the series have been
astronomical.
He pointed out that at the
start of the season when the
suggestion was first made -
that these two teams be
included in the series "I had
my doubts as to whether such
a programme could succeed.
My fears were rooted in the
economics involved."
He argued that such a
programme would require a
team travelling to and from the
Family Islands every weekend.
"I could not fathom in my
mind where, or how, the
Association could generate
sufficient funds to include two
Family Islands in the series."
He suggested a compromise
whereby they would tryout the
Family Island programme by
including only one team during
the first year, and use the
experience garnered during
that year as a guideline for
extending their programme in
future years. That was turned
down.
Nevertheless, hard work and


LEEDS Rain washed out
the last day of the cricket test
match between England and
Pakistan today and wrecked
the promise of an exciting
finish.
England, with four wickets
left, needed another 44 runs
for victory. But England's
batsmen never got the chance
to make them.
The rain started just before
play was due to begin and grew
heavier. The pitch was covered,
and the umpires made periodic
inspections under umbrellas.
Pakistan, who last beat
England 20 years ago, came
honorably out of the match.
The Pakistani hero was Sarfraz
Nawaz, who hit 53 in a gallant
last wicket stand and took
seven wickets in England's two
innings.
Later, when the match was
abandoned, Pakistani manager
Omar Kureishi said the team
was not unhappy.
Two more tests are
scheduled at Lord's,
London, starting Aug. 8 and at
the Oval, London, starting
Aug. 22.
Summarized scores:
Pakistan 285 (Majid Khan
75, Sarfraz Nawaz 53) and 179
(Mushtaq Mohammad 43, Chris
Old 4 for 54); England 183
(David Lloyd 48) and 238 for
6 (John Edrich 70, Keith
Fletcher 67 not out).

dedication on the part of the
officers of the Association have
made the series a succees, Mr.
Brown asserted.
Brown who, succeeded
Anthony Curry as president of
the B.B.A. pointed out that
this year they had very little
response from their appeals for
donations. This he said was
evident by the fact that a
month ago over 200 letters
explaining their situation were
sent to prominent citizens in
the community. So far, they
have received response from
three individuals and six firms.
"Therefore, I am making
this special appeal to those
business houses, or individuals,
who hold as dearly to their
hearts, as we in baseball do, the
aspiration to see the Bahamas
succeed in Withita," he said.
Brown expressed confidence
in team manager Adrian
Rodgers. "We have high hopes
that they (the Wichita team)
will be a credit to our great
nation during their per-
formance in Wichita this year."
The B.B.A. raffle, the
proceeds of which were to help
defray expenses, was unsuc-
cessful.
