THE Bahamianisation
process spurred by
Government% purchase of
three hotels "must go a bit
further" through the sale
of shares in the operations
to Bahamians,
Development Corporation
chairman Carlton E.
Francis as:;erted yesterday.
He saw the "economic
package" represented by
Government's $20 million loan
resolution as "not rounded"
because it "neglected" to hold
out any hope for immediate
Government aid to the many
segments of society in need of
help.
The former Finance Minister
abstained from the House vote
on the loan resolution because
the $20 million was earmarked
for the purchase of hotels that
S'wo uld be the "nu ies" of a
resort complex that would
include a gambling casino. Mr.
Francis' opposition to casino
gambling for religious reasons
is well-known.
The South Beach M.P. noted
that in Wednesday's
-ommunication to the House
Prime Minister Pindling had
seen the hotel purchases as an
example of Government
"setting the pace" in increasing
Bahamian ownership of and
participation in business
activities.
"I cannot argue," Mr.
Francis declared, "that because
Government has purchased the
hotels it means that we have
reached the ultimate in
Bahamiansation.
"To me, the ultimate is
when the little man over the
hill has some of those shares in
his pocket."
The Government, he said,
must merely hold those hotels
"in trust" for the Bahamian
people.
The ultimate in
Bahamianisation will be
achieved, he said, only "when
they (Government) are certain
that the enterprises are making
profits, they will make sure
that through public offerings
or otherwise the supervisor in
housekeeping has shares in her
pocket, and the waiter at the
table in the dining room has
some shares in his pocket.
Then we will have
Bahamianisation," he declared.
The DevCo chairman said he
was "extremely disappointed
that our first incisive thrust
into the economy is not a more
rounded package. I would have
imagined that the economic
package would have included
other factors besides hotels."


He conceded that the
Government was "not
unmindful" of the other
sectors of the economy,
because the Prime Minister's
communication had made it
clear it was intended that
profits from Government
owned casinos would be used
to "further the economic

THE DECISION by
government to purchase three
hotel properties on Cable
Beach was taken in order to
retain the reputation of the
Bahamas as a first class resort.
Tourism Minister element t
Maynard said yesterday.
The Minister pointed out
that it cost the same to bring in
first class visitors as it did the
package traveller. The
government had for years been
paying out substantial bonuses
to travel agents and wholesalers
who brought in over $2 million
in business to the Bahamas.
"Since we and the hotels are
paying we should strive to
encourage them to bring in
better business." he said.
Since the owners were not
prepared to upgrade the
Emerald Beach Hotel the
government had to do
something.
"We know work will have to


development in other parts of
the coufitry."
However, "1 speak of the
Neglect to say anything to
',Ac* B nak n .A n .r1' family
islands who have consistently
since 1967 given considerable
support to the Government."
He interpreted the
communication as telling the
people "that if and when our
casinos earn money we may be
able to do something for you."
"Suppose they don't make
money?" Mr. Francis asked.
"Is the implication then that
the family islands will be
neglected? I would have
thought that some carrot
would have been held out to
them.
"What has it (the
communication) said to those
whose existence has to be eked
out in agriculture and fisheries?
There are so many elements
that have been waiting for
months and months to hear
something that was going to
affect their livelihood."
He hammered on:

"Are we saying to the
hundreds of young people.
'when our casinos make some
money we will be able to take
care of you?' Is that what
we're saying to the
construction industry?
"Are we saying to the
investment programme


which I
head
casinos
will be
you?''

Mr.
member
true th


debate dealt solely with the
purchase of the three hotels.
"you cannot see the resolution
in isolation from other matters
because the hotels will be the
'nucleus' of other things to
come. When I look at this
resolution I see the nucleus of
what I call casino
constellation, and since it is
that I will be abstaining from
the vote My views on the
matter are well-known and I
don't have to repeat them
now."
But another issue was raised
"If we are to stimulate
development in one area of the
Commonwealth with a casino
constellation, what is going to
be our reply when other areas
ask for a casino constellation
to stimulate development?.
Governor's Harbour M.P'.
Phillip Bethel. a part-time
minister of religion, declared
he would not hesitate to
support the resolution
"because I cannot see too
much in the resolution about
casinos."
Mr Francis remarked, "you
can't see too good."
government t speakers who
followed Mr. Francis to the
floor yesterday hinted broadly
that the hotels move was only
the first in a series of moves
that together would make up a
more rounded economic
package.


I have the misfortune to There was no specific reply
that 'if and when the to Mr. Francis' urging for the

Bahamians, although Home
Affairs Minister Darrel E. Rolle
Francis told House did concede that the hotels
rs that although it was were being "held in trust for
at the resolution under the Bahamian people."


We want hotels to r


be done at the Emerald Beach
but there is no doubt that we
will set the tone and stance
from now on and that the first
class standards in the Cable
Beach area will be
maintained," the Minister
declared.
Mr. Maynard found nothing
unusual in government's
participation in this quarter of
the private sector.
When the government
wanted to start tourism in the
islands it did so by putting
money into it by financing the
construction of hotels.
Today throughout the
Caribbean there was a new
philosophy where governments
guaranteed loans.
"For the first time," Mr.
Maynard declared, "we are
looking at a programme that
will give Bahamians a real
feeling of participation in the
principal industry."

And as it was mainly the
white people who held most of
the money "all we would be
doing is making some white
people dead rich."
Mr. Wilson asserted that if
there was anything that would
involve both black and white,
government would have to be a
participant. The same thing
also applied to agriculture, he
added.
If, as had been alleged by
the Opposition, the three
hotels were "chronic losers, we
would be fooling ourselves to
wait for the investor to absorb
those losses," he said
The member thought it was
better to act now when a
sensible and rational approach
could be taken than to act later
in desperation when the
situation became far more
grave.
Mr. Wilson suggested that if
the Sonesta was such a
money-losing proposition,
negotiations with another
buyer (Wardair) would not
have proceeded to the point
where the hotel's owners
would have sought government
approval to sell.
He dismissed the Opposition
argument that government
involvement would discourage
private investment.
"No one has given
consideration to the fact that
the government envisages
construction of a convention
complex." As he understood it,
the hotels were having trouble
keeping their guests on Cable
Beach in the evening and as a
result their food and beverage
sales were suffering.
The complex would keep
people on the premises for a
longer part of the day and
improve the food and beverage
aspect which would further
improve the viability of the
hotels, thus triggering further
inveslnent by other investors.
As for the assertion that
government was abandoning it:
iole as mediator inindustrial
disputes. Mr. Wilson observed
that government was already
the largest employer in the
country, if one were to include
the corporations.
-"If it doesn't affect that,
how will it affect the workers
in the case of the hotels?" he
asked.
A chartered accountant. Mr.
Wilson said he was satisfied
that the three hotels were
being purchased at good prices
and that purchase of the
emeraldd Beach in particular,
would have a "most positive
impact on unemployment."
The government would be
maintaining them as first class
hotels which would open up
jobs which would otherwise
have been lost.
"Once these hotels are
properly managed, the attitude
of our people will improve
because they will know that
they will be working for
themselves," he said.


GOVERNMENT'S
purchase of three Cable
Beach Hotels was a
"progressive, courageous and
imaginative" move, and the
alternative was to allow the
area to deteriorate into a
second-class tourist
destination, Prime Minister L.
O. Pindling declared
Thursday.
He aruged, too, that
Government ownership of
hotels could not be an issue
because for years taxpayers
have had an indirect
investment in most hotels in
the country.
And he revealed that in
buying at least one of the
hotels Government has not
also acquired its millions of
dollars of indebtedness.
In the House debate on
Government's $20 million
loan resolution to provide
money to buy the Sonesta
Beach Hotel, the Emerald
Beach Hotel and the Balmoral
Hotel, the Prime Minister
declared that "we are not
now debating the principle of
whether public money out of
the Public Treasury should be
put into hotels.
"The question is whether,
when the Government puts
money into a hotel. the
Government gets an equitable
return on its investment."
Mr. Pindling pointed out
that most hotels have been
built under the Hotels;
EnLouragement Act. In many
cases Crown Land was given
to investors as hotel sites, and
materials and supplies tor
hotels have been imported
under the tax breaks the Act
provides.
He said import duties
would initially be paid by the
hotels, but was refunded by
the Treasury on submission
of an exemption claim.
Therefore. he argued,
money has already come out
of the Treasury and been paid
to the hotels, but neither the
Government nor the
taxpayers have derived direct
dividends from their
investments in those hotels.
He went on to say that the
only alternative to
Government's decision to buy
the three hotels and build a
complete resort complex
around them was "to let the
whole (Cable Beach) area, in


which the public hasso much
of an investment, deteriorate
into a second class area."
He pointed out that the
company that had been
negotiating to buy the
Sonesta before Government
stepped in had intended to
make the hotel an inclusive
tour charter (ITC)
destination. Tourism Minister
Clement T. Maynard had
earlier in the debate asserted
that, because of the initially
high capital investment in
building the hotel, the
operators could not possibly
have made a profit at the
cut-rate room rentals offered
package tourists.
The Emerald Beach had
been heading in the same
direction, Mr. Pindling went
on. He pointed out that
under the original Crown
vrant of the Emerald Beach
property, the operators
agreed to build and maintain
a "first class. deluxe resort
hotel."
"It wouldn't have been
necessary to close half of the
I emerald Beach (in June this
sear) or to terminate the jobs
ot half the employees if it
had been maintained as a
Srst class, deluxe resort
hotel," Mr. Pindling said.
And. up to the time of the
.Ale agreement with
(,osernment. lie added, "the
remaining half of the Emerald
Beach was not being
Operated, in Government's
'iew. as a first-class, deluxe
eisort hotel."
The Balmoral Hotel, he
wxent on, was in danger of
shutting completely, at the
loss of 200 jobs. because the
British owners. Court Lines,
had in the last month had
trading in its stock on the
London Stock Exchange
suspendedd and was "on the
serge of financial collapse."
Meanwhile, he said, the
Nassau Beach Hotel, the only
hotel on Cable Beach that
had been trying to maintain
high standards, was
wondering how it could
continue to operate with
room rates that were
necessarily higher than those
offered by the Sonesta and
the Emerald Beach, which
flank it on the Cable Beach

NEW GAMING


ACT PASSED


BY SENATORS


By ELLISTON RAHMING
DESPITE strong opposition
from Free National Mo,'ement
Senators, Government Senators
yesterday approved an Act that
amends the Lotteries and
Gaming Act 1969 and gives
magistrates power to impose a
fine of up to $1,000 or hand
down a jail sentence of up to
one year to anyone who is
convicted of buying a
"number."
F.N.M. Leader in the Senate
Orville Turnquest made it clear
that his party agrees with the
Act 'in principle," but was
bitterly opposed to section 4A
of the Act.
Section 4A states: "Any
person who pays or deposits
any money or money's worth
to or with any person for the
purposes of participating in a
lottery shall be guilty of an
offence and liable on summary
conviction for such offence to
a fine not exceeding twelve
months or to both such fine
and imprisonment and in the
case of a second or subsequent
conviction for such offence
shall be liable to a fine not
exceeding $ ,000 and SHALL
be sentenced to imprisonment
for a term not exceeding
twelve months."
(It is assumed that these
provisions to do not apply
where the operator of the
lottery has got a licence from
the Government).
Senator Henry Bostwick
(F.N.M.) said that although the
"number racket is an evil,
harsh laws will not produce
just results." He also
admonished Senators to bear in
mind that the new legislation
will not stop the number house
racket ,but -will cause it to go
further unuergrotnd because
the operators are too
entrenched in the
business." Senator' Bostwick
contended that the punishment
for buying a number and being
convicted is out of proportion
to the illegality of the crime.
"Bear in mind that we are
making laws for the poor
people over the hill not for
professionals or semi-profess-
ionals. Ninety five percent of
the people who will be affected
by this new law are people
from the black belt of this
country and from the lowest
economic conditions."
He then queried, "Are we
helping them by bringing down
a heavy hand for a petty
wrong?"
Government Leader in the


Senate Paul Adderley said that
because of the "serious social
ills connected with the
numbers racket, if a person is
convicted of buying a number
the first time, he is on
notice. But if they are
convicted the second time,
they will go to jail."
He contended further that
there is no excuse for a person
who is convicted for buying
numbers a second time.
Senator Turnquest then
moved for an amendment to
section 4A of the Act that
would bring the maximum fine
down to $500 and the longest
jail sentence possible to six
months.
Speaking on the F.N.M.'s
amendment, Senator
Alexander Maillis asked: "If
the convict cannot afford to
pay $1,000, how will he afford
to pay $500?" He also asserted
that a person who is convicted
of buying a number "should be
sent to jail the first time."
Senator Arthur Foulkes who
was described by Senator
Adderley as a political
philosopher, was by far the
most vocal Senator taking part
in the debate.
He pointed out to Senators
present that there is a
fundamental difference
between a person who buys a
number and is convicted and a
person who steals, rapes or
commits murder.
"Do you mean to tell me
that you are willing to pass a
piece of legislation that will
force a magistrate to send a
person to jail if he is convicted
a second time of buying a ten
cent number?" he asked
Government Senators.
According to Sen. Foulkes,
maPy people buy numbers not
because they "want'*to, but
because they are out of a job
and if they don't invest their
ten cents to the number house
operator and win their children
will go hungry.
"I am against the numbers
racket. But I cannot, for the
life of me, agree to an Act that
enables a magistrate to fine a
poor old lady or a weak old
man up to $1,000 or send

SNAPPER SALE
ABOUT 3,500 pounds of
deep water snapper, mainly
red, will be sold at the Potters
Cay dockside of the U.N.
Fishing vessel Fregata from 9
a.m. tomorrow. The fish is
being sold at 80 cents per
pound.


Here comes Cuba..


CUBA, whose collapse as a
tourist destination has been
credited with development of
the Bahamas tourism industry,
is going to resume competing
for the international tourist
dollar "in the foreseeable
future," Prime Minister
Pindlng warned in the House
Thursday..
Mr. Pindling, stressing the
importance of the Bahamas
"being competitive and staying
competitive," told House
members that the Government
has learned of an agreement
between Cuba and Spain under
which Spain will provide
technical assistance, mac-
hinery and materials to


etain first-class reputation, says Maynard


If the hotels were operated
on a business-like basis with
the support of the Bahamian
people they had a good chance
of success, the Minister said.
He anticipated that
Bahamians. realizing that they
had a stake in the economy for
the first time, would do their
part in bringing about the
success of the hotels.
An indication of the
confidence of Bahamians in the
Bahamas was the statement by
the president of the Real
Estate Association that brokers
had sold more property in the
first six months of this year
than they had done for the
past two years.
Mr. Simeon Bowe, Minister
of Works, noted that without
income, corporate or estate
tax, the government could
only provide the goods and
services demanded by
participating in some area from


which revenue could be
derived.
"What better than the
backbone of the economy
tourism," he declared.
Mr Bowe said he didn't
believe any of the three hotels
were losing money. "If they
were losing they wouldn't have
stayed in the hotel business
that long."
Evei since 1967 the
government had been asking
the hotels to produce their
books but they had refused.
He claimed that when Sir
Roland Symonette referred to
the high incidence of stealing
he was in fact suggesting the
stealing was being done by
black Bahamians taking things
out the back door.
The Minister asserted that
most of what was stolen was
carried out the front door by
expatriate employees and
guests.


Alluding to the involvement
by previous Bahamian
governments in ownership of
or financial support for hotels,
Mr. Bowe remarked that there
didn't seem to be anything
wrong with it in Jamaica,
Barbados, Trinidad, Puerto
Rico or Guyana, so why was it
wrong here.
"I am proud to say that I am
a socialist because I would do
the greatest good for the
greatest number," he declared.
Mr. Oscar Johnson (PLP-Cat
Island) said he was prepared to
support the resolution
approving the loan of $20
million for the hotel purchase,
but warned the government
that "what is good enough for
Cable Beach is good enough for
Cat Island."
Mr. Johnson noted that the
future viability of the hotels
would depend on certain
facilities. Although the


member did not say so, he was
pointedly referring to
establishment of a casino as
part of the convention
complex being proposed.
A similar casino proposal for
Cat Island is being very vocally
supported by Mr. Johnson as a
means of revitalising the island.

FIREARMS ACT

The proposed amendments
to the Firearms Act were
deferred by the House
Wednesday when Home Affairs
Minister Darrell Rolle
explained that the Bill had
only been circulated to
members that morning.
The Bill, which seeks to
tighten up the country's gun
laws through harsher penalties,
will be dealt with by the House
when It meets again on August


refurbish existing Cuban hotels
and to build about 40 new
ones.
In addition, Cuba and
Switzerland have signed a
reciprocal air traffic agreement
that will give Cuba a pipe-line
into the fast-growing European
market.
The principal targets of
Cuban tourism marketing
efforts, he said, would be
Canada, France and
Scandinavia, all of which are
contributing significantly to
the growth of the Bahamian
tourist economy in the face of
declining American travel.
"Cuba is going to be back in
the tourist business in the
for-seeable future," the Prime
Minister declared.
Cuba had a booming tourism
industry backed by gambling
facilities until the 1958
revolution that brought Fidel
Castro to power and ushered in
15 years of isolationism.
Many experts have
attributed the development of
the Bahamian tourism industry
to the collapse of Cuba's
industry.
In recent years, however,
Cuba has been emerging from
its shell with trade agreements
and cultural exchanges with
several Caribbean and Latin
American countries.

Massive Nazi

bomb defused
LONDON Army
explosives experts today
defused a huge bomb
dropped by the German
Luftwaffe in World War II air
raid.
The 2,500-pound bomb
had been unearthed on a
building site at Plaistow in
East London.
About 2,500 residents of
the area were evacuated from
their homes as the experts
drilled through the casing and
melted out the explosive.
"This was one of the
biggest German bombs
dropped on Lndo in the
Second World War," said Maj.
Arthur Hogben, leader of the
army team. 'We're lucky it
didn't explode. The blast
would have been enormous."
Later, an explosion rocked
east London.
Hogben said he believed
the detonator blast probably
set off another buried World
War II bomb or part of the
same bomb which may have
broken off and embedded
itself some yards away. (AP)

BATTLE


Turks take abandoned villages


NICOSIA The biggest
outburst of fighting since the
Cyprus ceasefire agreement was
signed three days ago, erupted
across the western Kyrenia
mountains today.
Turkish forces advanced into
four Greek Cypriot villages
that were abanoned after heavy
Turkish artillery barrages in the
past 48 hours.
Turkish thanks launched a
major assault against the sole
Greek strongpoint still on the
mountains an artillery
defended outpost at the top of
Mt. Kyparissouvouno.
A. U.N. armoured patrol
attempting to go up the
mountain was fired at and
turned back without suffering
any casualties.
A car full of reporters
travelling behind the U.N.
armoured car was also fired at
by Turkish soldiers. But there
were no hits.
The fighting was centered at
the village of Agridaki on the
Nicosia side of the Kyrenia

-The poker hostages


HUNTSVILLE Fred
Gomez Carrasco, an armed
convict who took over the
Texas state prison library on
July 24, has chided authorities
for "playing a game of poker"
with the lives of the 13
hostages he holds.
W. J. Estelle, director of the
State Department of
Corrections, agreed on
Thursday to provide an
armoured vehicle demanded by
Carrasco, but only after


Carrasco and two fellow rebels
release all hostages.
Carrasco said that he would
release nine hostages after they
form a "human shield" behind
which he, two fellow inmates
and four other hostages would
board the armoured vehicle.
Carrasco said that Estelle's
proposal would amount to
"suicide."
The 34-year-old Caribco, an
underworld narcotics chief
serving a life sentence for
assault to murder, had
demanded that an armoured
truck with a telephone and a
shortwave radio be placed in
the prison courtyard outside
the education building.
Carrasco said: "I have made
it very plain that the hostages,
all except four of them, will be
released after boarding the
armoured truck. The safety of
the hostages is the reason for
the telephone. The hostages
will be in constant contact
with you.


"Now you are the one that
seems to be playing a game of
poker with the lives of these
people. And if you are a poker
player at all you realize I have
the four aces and the joker,"
Carrasco. said.
Meanwhile, Estclle's
department imposed what
amounts to a news blackout.
Asked if it would continue,
prison spokesman Ron Taylor
said on Thursday night: "Let's
take one day at a time."
Carrasco took over the
library with a gun apparently
smuggled in by his wife, Rosa.
Authorities are seeking her on
a charge of facilitating an
escape.
At one point, Carrasco held
as many as 15 hostages, gaining
and losing them as the ordeal
wore on. Eight of the hostages
now being held are teaci:hrs
and librarians employed at the
prison. The others include
Father O'Brien, a guard and
three convicts. (AP)


Kidnap dentist

shot dead


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.
Police searched today for two
men who abducted a
prominent dentist at gunpoint
18 hours before he was found
shot to death.
The body of Dr. Robert
Illiott, 38, was found
Thursday afternoon in the
trunk of his car parked on an
abandoned mine road about 15
miles from his ranch style
house in Chattanooga.
Elliott was shot in the back
of the head and in one arm
Chattanooga police chief Jerry
Pitts said. The bullets were
fired from a .38-caliber pistol,
officials said.
Elliott, 38, who specialized
in children's dentistry, was
forced into his own car by two
masked men armed with a
shotgun and a revolver as his
wife and three sons watched
helplessly.
The masked pair had been
waiting in the Elliott home
when the family returned from
Seventh Day Adventist Church
services Wednesday night.
Elliott's wife, Barbara, 35,
told detectives his abductors
forced a pillowcase over his
head, put him in the trunk and
drove away after warning her
not to contact police for an
hour and a quarter.
Neither Mrs. Elliott nor any
of her three sons was harmed.
Police said Mrs. Elliott
heeded the kidnappers'
warning and delayed reporting
the adbuction. Detectives said
the telephone lines to the
house had been cut. It was not
revealed how police were
notified.
The family sedan was found
early Thursday afternoon in a
wooded area, parked along the
old dirt road near U.S. 27.


Police said the doctor's
abductors had ransacked the
house before the family\
returned home from church.
About $200 in cash was
missing alone with some furs

BEFORD. England A
young couple caught twice

pounds ($48) by a court
here.
A policewoman saw the
passionate pair making love
in full view of passers-by.
'Stop it!" she ordered
them. They didn't.
The policewoman
grabbed the man's arm and
tried to pull him away, but
with little success.
Finally reinforcements
were called in. The lovers
were parted, dressed and
taken to a police precinct
and charged with breaking
city laws.
An hour later another
policewoman found them
picking up where they had

She too pleaded with
them to break it up.
Back came their
anguished reply: "Oh, no!
Not again! Give us a break."
The couple was hauled
off to the police station

Both pleaded guilty in

West lies the Indies!


By ETIENNE DUPUCH

LAGOS, The Algarve, May 25: Fifty-eight years ago I saw
the light atop the cliffs at Cape St. Vincent. This light is at the tip
of Portugal which is the southwesterly point of Europe.
Until Columbus made his landfall in the Bahamas on his first
voyage of discovery, St. Vincent was considered the end of the
earth. As I told you in an earlier article, a 13th century Portuguese
writer, declared that, "this is the place at which land ends and sea
begins."
But it was from this very spot that Prince Henry, better known
as the Navigator (1394-1460), sent ships on long voyages of
discovery that took them along the coast nf Africa, to parts of
India and half way towards America.
Because of the activities of Prince Henry, Portugal was
perhaps the first European nation to fully explore the African
coast and penetrate into its interior. And so it is interesting that
Portugal will be the last European nation to relinquish its hold on
African territory acquired during this period. At that time
Portugal was recognized as a leader of thought in Europe.
*******
It is small wonder that this point In Portugal was regarded as
the end of the earth because this coast is marked by high rugged
cliffs that seem to be designed by nature to resist the invasion of
the ocean.
The light that I saw from the open sea when I was a
17-year-old soldier on a transport in the first world war, is
perched atop a 400-ft. cliff and its light sends its rays across 58
miles of ocean.

I found our visit to this area most interesting for more than
one reason.
A long, low building near the lighthouse is supposed to be the
place where Prince Henry established a school of navigation.
Nearby is a tiny building in which the Prince is supposed to have
iwmd and died. The navigation school building is now used as a
- youth hostel.
There can be no doubt about the great contribution Prince
Henry made to navigation and exploration during his lifetime.
The Portuguese claim that he invented the compass and also
built a carrack that could be sailed in any kind ot sea and wind
direction. It is claimed that, until Henry invented his own ship,
sailing boats could go only in the direction in which the wind was
blowing and so oars had to be used when the wind was not
favourable.
This fact also lends credence to the claim that ships were
sometimes blown off their course and taken into uncharted seas ...
and so it is possible that ships from Europe and Egypt made the
one-way trip to the Americas long before they were officially
discovered by Columbus on October 12, 1492.
There are, of course, many legends about this remarkable
Prince which are not supported in the historical record but there
can bo no question about the large place he earned for himself in
history.
Before he became involved in navigation he was also a great
soldier but we won't go into this part of his career. Space will
permit me to give only a short biographical sketch of this pioneer
in navigation.

Henry was the third son of John 1 of Portugal (1357-1433).
John is listed as the "Natural" son of Pedro I. I might explain
that "natural" in this case means illegitimate. A child born in
wedlock is recorded as "legitimate".
Henry's mother was Philippa, a daughter of John of Gaunt, an
English prince and father of kings. He is made a colourful figure
by Shakespeare in his Richard II.
According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, his father, John,
was "the founder of the Aviz dynasty under whom Portugal,
victorious against Castile and the Moors of Morocco, began to
take a prominent place among European nations."
As an illustration of the close relationship that existed between
Portugal and Africa from Henry's time, the town in which we are
staying in the Algarve is named Lagos and the principal hotel here
is the Hotel Lagos.
As you know, Lagos is also the capital city of Nigeria, the
largest state in Africa today, I have no doubt that this name was
given to Nigeria by early Portuguese explorers.
********


I was particularly interested to find that Henry's mother was a
daughter of John of Gaunt. I have tried unsuccessfully to trace
Gaunt's racial background because a portrait of Henry shows him
as a man of a deep brown complexion and with facial
characteristics that would suggest "that some Moorish blood
coursed through his veins.
If Philippa was blondish, then his father John must have been
very dark complexioned. In this portrait Henry also wears a
head-dress that suggests a Moorish influence.
I discussed this fact with a friend of mine and he told me that
the Moors left a deep imprint on all the royal houses in parts of
Europe which they ruled for five centuries after the fall of the
Roman Empire.
This probably explains some of the physical characteristics of
King Victor Emmanuel of Italy who was driven from his throne
by Benito Mussolini in 1925 to establish a republic in the nation
and end the rule of the House of Savoy.

1 have written all this to introduce a little known story about
Columbus into the picture and to show that the influence of
Henry mi stimulating interest in navigation largely shaped the life
of Columbus.
In this connection I will auote the opening passage in Leland
Dewitt Baldwin's "The Story of The Americas", Simon Schuster.
New Yotk. 1943.
Under the heading "West Lies The Indies". Baldwin wrote that
"when the Phoenicians, the forerunners of all those who go down
to the sea in ships, thrust their painted bows between the Pillars
of Hercules and stole cautiously into the Open Sea they found
the Rock of Sagrez, the answer to their search for the western
confines of Europe.

"The debts belong to the
guy who sells," he said. "We

He did not say whether
this applies also to the
Emerald Beach, which has
operated at a loss for three or


four years.
Regarding employment,
the Prime Minister said the
project "will not provide
immediate jobs for anyone,
but it does hold out promise
for substantial jobs in the
future and has prevented the
dismissal of employees from a
large number of jobs in the
present."
The statement indicated
there were no immediate
plans to re-open the closed
half of the Emerald Beach or
to re-hire the 164 employees
who were fired.


"The Sacred Promontory they named it, the westernmost altar
of the familiar gods, guarding the blessed land against the
unknown terrors that lay behind the veil of azure gray that joined
sky and sea beyond the setting of the sun.
"A millennium rolled by. Cartha-inmins. Romans and Visigoths
came and went but still the Rock of Sagrez remained the westem
bastion of the known world. Another millennium drew to its
close.
"The spiderlike galleys of the Saracens and the clumsy
carracks of the Genoese now plowed the green waves at the foot
of the Rock which had come to be known as (ape St. Vincent,
but the hard-bitten corsairs and mercihant adventurers who strode
their decks were as ignorant as the first pioneers of what lay
beyond the desert of waters."
(Incidentally, the Rock of Sagre/ was renamed Cape St.
Vincent because the body of St. Vincent wais found at this spot.
It now rests in the Cathedral in Lisbon).
Continuing Baldwin's record: "But the appointed time was
drawing swiftly on when the veil of azure grey that obscured the
Green Sea of Darkness should be rent asunder and a New World
revealed to the wondering gaze ot the men ot l.urope.
"In a spiritual sense the discovery of the New World began
towards sunset on the thirteenth day of August. 1476. On this
day the steeps of the Sacred Promontory witnessed a battle
between Genoa's Flanders fleet and the caravels of the French
admiral, Guillaume de Casenova, kinowln as Colombo or Coullon,
sailing in alliance with the King of Portugal.
"All day the battle rages with uncertain results, until towards
evening Colombo in desperation sets fire o the great carrack with
which his own is locked in combat. The fire spreads quickly
though the fleet and soon several of the ships are wrapped in
flames.
"One man succeeds in reaching a fioatiir o:ir and with this to
support him strikes out for the shore, abowhl r o. leagues away.
"Somewhere at the base of the cliffs lining the 2oast his feet
touch bottom; no sooner has he gairnd t he beach lh;a he falls
upon his knees and gw'es tanks 1',, 'hk :iints itF i p'eservation.
"Now, as he looks out to sea, where the horii'to: : red with the
mingled glow of the burning ships and the setti':g :un. it can be
seen that he is a young man, no more perhaps than twenty-five,
tall, with a long grave face. reddish hair. aquiline nose and full
lips; the face of one of those rare men who is both a dreamer and
a doer.
"And even now as he looks toward the lambelnt west his
deep-blue eyes glow with an answering flame. For this man
believes almost fanatically that he has a mission to perform.
"What is better calculated to confirii, thiJ idea than the mirracle
that has brought him safely to slhoic~
"Now is the time to recall "I.. lines flro ll the edea of
Seneca, lines which we find sel down in ai copybook that this
young man of destiny called his Book iof P'ophecies:
'There will come a time when the cwean sea will disclose its
secret and a sailor shall diiccr;er a new worl ', and then shall Tiale
be no longer the last of lantm '
"This is his destiny. and Providcii ha.is pointed the way by
casting him ashore in lthe sun-bleak south of Portugal. the one
Christian land that takes an interest in rnew discoveries. There
beyond the cape lies the village of Sagrc. arnd above it the castle
from which Prince Hlenry ilthe .ibl...iir had watched for the
returning sails of hlie caravels that he haI d sc down the African
coast to search out the x:wa to lie Indles where lay that
half-legendary Christian kingdom rof Prester John.
"Year after year these caravels had come back with a little gold
in their lockers, a few score slaves ititheir stinking holds, and a
little more knowledge to add to the closely guarded store.
"Yes, perhaps sonic day the Portuguese caravels will find the
Indies and Prester John if the coast of Africa falls away before it
reaches the Antarctic Pole.
"All that is possible. And yet lhowv simple, if men would but see
it, is the route to their goal. Not to thle south nor even to the east.
but in another direction, so logical thai most men thin.< it
inconceivable.
"West lie the indies!"
"'The voting man whose life had been spared to a great destiny
was Christoforo Colombo Christopher Colurmbhs. as we write
it, or, in Spanish. Chistobal Colon."
**

A briefer and less colorful report on this turning point in the
life of Christopher Columbus is found in Samuel lliot Morison's
book Christopherr Columbuts. .riner.
Morison writes that "in May 1470. in Ins 25th year. c-nue the
adventure that changed the course of Christopher's life.
"Genoa organized aln armed con vo\ to carry a valuable cargo
to Northern Furope, and in this convoy Christopher sailed as
seaman in a Flemish vessel named l echalla
On August 13, when it had passed the St rait of Gibraltar and
was off the Southern coast of Portugal. the fleet was attacked by
a French task force.
"The battle raged all day. and by nightfall thice ucnoese ships
and four of the enemy's had gone down. Bechalla was one of the
casualties.
"Christopher, though wounded, managed to grasp a floating
sweep and, by alternately kicking it ahead and resting on it.
reached the shore six miles distant. The people of l.agos. near
which he landed, treated him kind, and on learning that Ilis
younger brother Ba. .tolometiv was living in Lisbon. sent him
thither as coon as lie could travel.
"This was one of the best things that could have happened to
Christopher.

It is here that my wife and I and grandson Graham spent a
most interesting week in rounding out another journey around
the world.
We liked thie area enough to plan a longer stay when we make
another round-the-world trip in September-October this year with
members of the Commonwealth Press Union who will tou
Malaysia and Singapore, hold a conference in long Kong, and
then hopefully proceed in a body to mainland China.

THE TRIBUNE - Friday, August 2, 1974


IF YOU'RE on Bay Street
or Shirley Street at five o'clock
any weekday evening youll see
hundreds of pretty,
well-dressed women emerging
from Nassau's banks and
business houses, that could
compare favourably with the
women of any metropolitan
city in the world.
There are heaps of clothing
stores in Nassau that have
completely removed the
necessity for shopping away.
However, for the Women
who Dresses (with a capital
"D"), her choice in designer
clothes, up 'til a week or so
ago, was limited. For the
clothes she sees between the
covers of Vogue or Harper's
Bazaar she would have to go to
Saks Fifth Avenue or Bonwit
Teller in New York or to Bal
Harbour in Florida.
Now she can shop
comfortably right here at
home. Instead of spending her
vacation fitting clothes she can
sightsee by day and theatre at
night. Besides a waste of a
vacation there are all sorts of


pitfalls in shopping away. That
outfit that looked perfect
under the grey skies of New
York might not just be right
under the bright tropical skies
of the Bahamas. And you have
to rely on memory of your'
wordrobe at home. You can't
just pop back to Nassau to see
if that dress is right with your
existing accessories.
Then who of us can
anticipate our wardrobe needs
for the next year? On top of
this there is the problem of
packing one's purchases, the
expense of sales tax, excess
baggage and customs duty.
Tedd' 's of Nassau, recently


opened in the Beaumont
Arcade, is fulfilling perhaps the
last clothing needs hitherto
unfulfilled in the Bahamas.
Although a small uncluttered
shop, Teddy's have the widest
variety of designer clothes to
offer in Nassau Cardin,
Geoffrey Beene, Chester
Weinberg, Jayna, Maria Scotto,
Pat Sandler, Shrader, Victor
Jones, Mollie Parnis, Gunter,
Pisanti of Paris, Howard
Lawrence. Kimberlee and
many others.
The principle behind
Teddy's is that in a small
community such as Nassau
their clientelle don't want to

meet themselves at a social
function no matter'how much
they pay for their clothes.
Teddy's merchandise, which is
hand-picked, has practically no
duplicates.
And, it appears that designer
clothes are not just for the
wealthy. The working girl
often prefers a designer outfit
to two, three or four off the
peg that everyone else is
wearing.
Teddy's project good taste.
The window which is changed
twice a week is carpetted. in
soft green with white wicker
furniture which decor is
duplicated in the store itself.
Displays, in the tradition of
professional window dressing,
are limited to two colours.
Scared to go into an
exclusive store? Well, Teddy's
is not a snobbish store. No
superior sales clerk looks you
up and down as if assessing
your income by your dress and
manner and treating you with
disdain if you don't appear to
ooze money. Teddy's is aware
that in to-day's day and age the

important for the larger
sister.
For the moneyed women of
Nassau accustomed to dressing
in designer clothes Teddy's has
relieved them of the chore of
going away to buy. For the
women of the Bahamas on a
more modest budget Teddy's
has provided them with a
hithertofore non-existent
choice. The average Bahamian
woman, well known for her
interest in fashion, is now in a
position to cut down her
wardrobe in half and fill it

designer clothes


working woman can offord to
dress. She can hold a dress by
putting down a deposit and
paying the balance next pay
day. And, on the same clothes
budget, she can exchange
quantity for quality.
Prices are about the same as
New York with none of those
additions such as tax, freight
and customs duty and, of
course, you don't need a taxi
to get to Teddy's.
Do you have a very special
function to go to and you look
through Vogue and Harper's
Bazaar and find the exact right
outfit both for you and the
function? You go to Teddy's
and they don't have it. There is
no need to buy the fabric and
attempt to have it duplicated.
Teddy's will order it personally
for you.
The fashion books tell you
that when allocating your
funds for your wardrobe you
should not spend excessively
on dress wear if you go to few
formal occasions. The bulk of
your funds should be spent on
the kind of clothes you wear
most.
And sports clothes are now
being worn for business and
most social occasions except
the grandest.
Teddy's sports clothes are
absolutely fabulous, including
quite a large selection of
Geoffrey Beene from the
Beene Bag, Gunter project 2
and many other designers. So
why only look high couture on
those rare big dress occasions
when you can look high
couture all the time?
Are you a woman with a
fuller than model's girl figure
and have resigned yourself to
looking a little on the dowdy
side?
There is no need. Teddy's
carry designer clothes that can
ensure that the larger woman
can look just as stunning as her
sylph-like sister. Especially
flattering for this woman are
Kimberlee's soft knit day
dresses and pant suits.
In fact the woman with a
slip of a girl figure can more
easily get away with
inexpensive off the peg clothes.
The cut and finish of designer
clothes are especially

A HOUSE eaunittee was
appointed WedniNW y to
comder all matters relating to
the supply, purchase,
nltuiance and repak of
electric generators at public
school and other government
buildings in the Family
Islands.
Named were: Mr. Cyril
Tynee (FNM-Crooked Island)
who moved for appointment of
the committee:; Errington
Watkins (lad.-Marsh
Harbour); Preston Albury
(PLP-Rock Sound); Oscar
Johson (PLP-Cat Island) and
Joaeph Ford (PLP-nagua).
Mr. Tynes said he became
aware of the very poor
maintenance condition of
generators in the Family
Islandsin 1972 and notwlPtat
five of the 10 to 12 geferators
at his island were out of order.
One in particular at the
Lovely Bay school had been
inoperative since 1972. The
school teacher there, he said,
had been without a generator
for the whole of that time. As


d-u!i h had asked to be
traflaemd.
S"During 1973 there was
other embetramsing situation
ti that district when an
ex-colonial Governor visited
that district and asked to use
the Commissioner's bath-
room," Mr. Tynes said.
That generator had been out
of service for over a year and
nothing had been done to
repair It.
'VE4PY VOCAL'
Alluding o he r"very vocal
complaints," of the Teachers'
Union, Mt. Tynes said that the
Minister responsible for
maintenance did in fact defend
his Ministry at that time.
"My intention is not to try
and fix blame, but the time is
long past when some corrective
action should be taken with
regard to these generators."
Representatives connected
with the Family Islands knew
nd guilty
it charge
14-year-old maintenance
worker, Alexander Gibson, on
May 11 during a week-end
brawl and assaulting Eustace
Gibson and instilling fear in
Det. Cpl. Cordell Delancey.
The jury returned a
finding of 10-2 guilty on the
first count and 8-4 guilty on
the second and a 9-3 guilty
finding on the third count. The
jury also recommended mercy
as they felt the incident was
"one of those Saturday night
affairs."


And harping on oe o0 O 1
favourite subjects, Mr. Johnson
charted that in this day of
spoken iahamntisti0on we
have an expatfitte in chae
firmly of the maintenance of
generators in the Out islands."
One of these, he continued,
claimed he wa in charge of the
"Bahamian commando unit."
This individual, an employee of
the Ministry of Works, had also
told Commissioners that they
were too stupid to touch a
generator, Mr. Johnson
asserted.


the importance of. thp
enerators to the people there.
Without them they could not
refrigerate food or obtain
water.
Mr. Tynes said he wanted to
bring to the attention of the
House that until recently Lister
generators were used but these
had been replaced by the
Petters machines "an
unknown quantity as far as
Bahamians are concerned."
One of these, installed only
in February, had already
broken down.
DISCRIMINATION
The Crooked Island
representative felt that
qualified people could be
found in the island to do the
routine maintenance. He said
he knew of two such people in
his constituency who had in
late 1972 or early 1973 offered
to assist, but the Commissioner
had informed them he could
not give them the job because
they were FNM.
"This state cannot be
allowed to continue. We must
use qualified Bahamians
regardless of political
pursuasion if we are to build
the better Bahamas that we
talk about,"he said.
Mr. Tynes then referred to
the "island hopping engineer"
which he said was an expensive
form of transportation and a
drain on the country's
resources.
Countering the member's
allegations, Works Minister
Simeon Bowe said that while
the Lister engine had
performed satisfactorily, it had
been changed because parts
could never be obtained when
the generators broke down. "It
takes three to six months to
get a bearing," he said.
As for the generator at
Lovely Bay, Mr. Bowe said his
Ministry had only now found
out that it was out of order.
When the mechanic was sent to
inspect it he found the
generator outside.
It had been worked on by
someone that no one could
identify and as a result of
exposure had seized up and
was no longer any good.

enoIeers and ehanicis who
am property trasd. Why is it
neceaaary have expatriates
to go into the Family Islands
to maintain a Imrantor and, to
add insult to injury, have these
Englishmen tell the Com-.
missioner he is stupid."
If Bahamianaiation was to
mean anything, Mr. Johnson
said, then qualified Bahamians
should be given the job. Mr.
Johnson alleged there were
four to five qualified engineers
at Cat Island who were
unemployed.


Another generator was now on
order to replace it.
As the result of remakrs
made earlier by him, the
Minister said, the Ministry of
Education had introduced a
preventive maintenance course
for .teachers this summer, and a
similar course was bemig
offered to Family Island
Commissioners.
As far as the "island hopping
engineer" was concerned, the
Ministry of Works had no
contract with anyone. "When
we find a competent person in
the area we let him do the job.
Where there are no regular
daily flights we use Graham
Martin because he has his own
plane."
What the Ministry was trying
to do was find competent
people on the islands and place
the maintenance of these
machines in their care. Mr.
Bowe pointed out however
that by competent he did not
mean someone who had
worked around cars or oiled a
boat engine.
Mr. Preston Albury
(PLP-Rock Sound) followed
the Minister with a technical
discourse on the intricacies of
diesel and gas engines, which
boiled down to the fact that in
preventive maintenance it was
important to check the fuel
level and water supply before
switching on the engine.
Mr. Cyril Fountain
(FNM-Long Island) agreed to
the importance of the
generators for Family Islanders
but said he could not
understand why a school had
to close down just because the
generator was not working.
Nevertheless it was incumbent
on the Minister or the Ministry
to know if the schools were
operating and if the generators
were operating in all public
places.
Mr. Oscar Johnson (PLP-Cat
Island) supported appointment
of the committee, and noted
that the clinic opened at
Smith's Bay, Cat Island in June
1972 had still not received its
generator although this had
been promised for Christmas
1972.

INDICTED

I. S VE(;GS. NEVADA
Howard Hughes and three
associates have been charged
Swith conspiracy. stock
manipulation and fraud by a
grand jury after the US
Justice Department dropped its
ohjetlions to indicting the
reclusive billionaire
I he grand jur. accused the
lour men Tuesdao of trying to
force down the salue of Air
'Wet stock in order to make it
easier for Hughes to gain
financial control of the airline
in 1968
The charges are a
streamlined version of an
indictment returned last Dec.
27 but thrown out by a federal
judge three days later. The
panel had been given until
Tuesday to return a new
indictment.
The grand jury, the same
one that handed down the
original charges, balked
Monday when it was asked to
return indictments only against
the three Hughes associates.
Tuesday's indictments
represented an overnight
reversal by the Justice
Department, which returned
control of the grand jury
presentation to V. Devoe
Heaton, the U.S. attorney in
Nevada.
Heaton had been forced to
withdraw from the case last
week under pressure from top
Justice Department officials
who insisted that Hughes not
be included in any new
indictment.

West deals and opens 2NT.
Your partner passes and East
says 3 Clubs, identified as
Stayman. Instead of making a
meek pass, there is quite a
good case for doubling at this
point. Of 'ou,,c, they are
never going to play in 3 Clubs
doubled, and will as likely as
not ignore your double, but
North won't ignore it, and if he
finds himself on lead both he
and you know that a Club lead
is the one calculated to give the
least away.

The really significant bid is
East's double of North's
cue-hid of 5 Clubs. Notice that
it did not in any way deter
North and South from
climbing to the Grand Slam.
and in fact only that piece of
monumentally stupid
'cleverness' enabled South to
make his contract. For, of
course. West led a Club, and of
course. South knew that he
could forget about trying the
finesse.
Without that double, West
would undoubtedly have led a
Diamond. South would count
as far as 12 tricks anywhere he
looked, and would eventually
try the Club finesse as a last
resort. Result, 1 down, and
victory for the defence. Plus
100. instead of minus 2,210.
Forced to make an early
decision in Clubs, and faced
with the prospect of going
down at Trick 1. South put up
dummy's Ace, and cast about
for a viable alternative to the
obvious lines of attack. lie
found one.
After the Ace of Clubs.

King of Diamonds, then ruffed
a Diamond in his own hand. A
Spade was led to dummy's

Miller, who was declarer, went
up with dummy's A and took
the losing club finesse. The heart
return went to the VK and a
trump revealed the 4-0 break.
Going up with the 4A, Miller
cashed the 4A, ruffed a club,
and coming back with the OA,
ruffed his last club. A diamond
ruff left him with 4J85, 5 J;
and west with 4K 107, 07.
A low trump settled the issue.
If West went up with his 4K.
Miller would score two trump
tricks. If West ducked, a dia-
mond ruff would yield him his
tenth trick.
Miller's opposite number went
two down in the same contract.

BOXERS

LOSE

ALL 5

FIGHTS
THE AMATEUR Boxing
Association of the Bahamas in
preparation for the World
Championship slated for
Cuba later this month, lost all
five bouts Wednesday night
during their return match with
Florida.
National coach Bert Perry,
in spite of their losses,
commented that he was
satisfied with the performance
of the local boxers. "We had
some real good boys to fight
against," he said.
Heavyweight Wellington
Miller who fought Charles
Cornett was one of two who
were stopped within the three
round distance. Cornett who is
Florida State's champ
connected Miller with a series
of combinations. The referee
stopped the bout with 28
seconds left in round three.

Ted rolle who dropped a
light heavyweight contest to
United States fourth ranked
Woody Clarke was penalized
two points for a technical foul.
That made the difference.
Bahamas lightweight champ
Nathaniel Whymns who was
also penalized a point dropped
a decision to Cuban Sam
Torrier. Whymns it is
understood bobbed and
weaved below the belt which is
an infringement of the A.A.U.
rules.

Arthur Clarke making his
second ring appearance looked
promising in losing to Jerrery
Nelson in the novice division.

A.B.A.B.'s independence
most valuable player Walter
Sawyer was stopped in the third
round by Golden Glove
champion Sammy Masias.
Sawyer claimed a sprained
hand.

Gym training for the
amateurs continue at the
Nassau Stadium on Monday.

Spain
SPORTSMAN of the Year,
56-year-old captain Durward
Knowles, and his crewman
Gerry Ford are preparing
to compete in the World's
Star Class sailing race
beginning September 1 in
Lorado, Spain.
Knowles and Ford will
leave Nassau August 22. The
boat's measurements will be
taken on the 24th. and on the
same day, the first race for
the European Championship
will begin.
There will be five races in
the championship which will
end on Aug. 29. The
championship will be the trial
to decide what type of sail
will be used in the World Star
Class.
Mr. Knowles said that his
regular crewman Monty Higgs
is unable to sail with him this
year on his 22ft
American-built Star class
boat.
Knowles. an Olympic gold
medalist who has been sailing
Star class for 36 years noted
that competition will be keen
because experienced sailors
from most of the fleets in the
United States and Europe will
be participating. He feels the
strongest competition will
come from the United States,
Sweden. Russia, Germany
and Portugal.
This is the first time the
Star Class championship race
will be held in Spain and
Knowles is eager to see the
conditions under which he will
be sailing. Knowles feels as
if his age has put him at a
disadvantage but he hopes to
finish in the top ten.
He thought about retiring a
few times after a few bad
races but very soon forgot
about the idea. He added he
is happy to see the number of
youngsters who are becoming
interested in the sport.
Earlier this year Knowles
took part in the Bacardi
sailing competition where he
finished second out of 40
entries.

THE BAHAMAS Cricket
A association's Board of
Control, after considering an
application from St.

that in the interest of all
teams it would be just to
postpone all games scheduled
to be played between August
3 and 30.
Wood's request was based
on the departure of several
players from both St.


Bei ards and the Southerners

Commonwealth Wanderers
team presently touring
Canada and New York.
The Southerners and St.
Bernards are presently tied
for first place with 44 points
and one more match left to
play.

be at a complete standstill. A.

DEADLY DODGERS


BRAD WOOD hurled six beautiful
innings firing a one hitter as Saint Michael
Dodgers trounced Crossroad Gaints 12-2
in pony league action yesterday at C. I.
Gibson School grounds.
Wood struck out 9 of the first 15
batters he faced keeping ordinance on the
mound as his Dodgers made the route
easier after each innings.
Crossroad mustered two runs, one on a
miscue by short stop Michael Adderly
and the other on losing pitcher Recardo
Lees' rbi single.
Crossroad filed a protest claiming that
St. Michael catcher James Miller is too
old to play in the Pony League circuit.
In the first frame Ricardo Lees got out


lead off batter Michael Adderly but a
costly error by his centre fielder put
Herman McKenzie on Second base.
With one two out Wood singled to plate
McKenzie from second base.
Two walks later, a blistering single by
left fielder Eugene Thompson gave the
Dodgers two more runs for a 3-0 lead.
The Giants went down in order in their
half of the first.
The Dodgers repeated the first frame
score in the second and plated four more
runs in the third to hold a 10-0 lead going
into the bottom of the third innings.
Fleet-footed Terry Powell led off the
Giants third frame with a walk then,
quickly advanced to third base on steals

-SOBERS CAN'T


SAVE NOTTS


LONDON Gary Sobers,
former West Indian cricket
captain, hit a fighting 84
Thursday but narrowly failed
to save Nottinghamshire from
defeat in the Gillette Cup.
Worcestershire got home by
1 tunss and won a place in the
semi-finals.
Worcestershire made 251 for
9 in the allotted 60 overs
Wednesday, and when
Nottinghamshire began the day
on 81 for 5 they appeared to
be heading for decisive defeat.
But Sobers, who was 38
this week, batted with all his
old skill and almost won the
match. Nottinghamshire were
behind the required scoring
rate and at the end of the 60
overs had reached only 233 for
9.
Sobers and Bob White added
exactly 100 runs in the
morning before being parted.
Then White was leg before
wicket to Van Holder, the West
Indian bowler for 36. Barry
Stead joined Sobers, and
victory appeared possible while
they were together.
But Norman Gifford, former
England left-arm spinner,
dismissed both of them in the
same over. That made
Nottinghamshire 219 for 8
with two overs left, and the


-Why leave it all so late ?


EDITOR, Tribune.
Kindly allow me the space
in your newspaper to
comment on the release from
the president of the Bahamas
Baseball Association the
other night.
I am in no way trying to
discredit anyone for the job
they are doing, but it seems
rather strange that a
tournament which for the
past couple of years seemed
to have had priority over the
championship series, the
association would wait until
one week before the team is
ready to leave to try and raise
approximately $11,000.
I am sure that these
officers were busy trying to
see that the series was going
on smoothly, but from what I
know, they had a special
committee to raise funds for
this tournament since the
beginning of the. year so it
had to be that either there


was a lack ot communication
between this committee and
the officers, or this
committee was non-functio-
nal.
It also strikes me strange
that for the contacts by
sponsors, the list includes
only the Commissioner, the
president and the assistant
secretary. I do not know but
may be the treasurer and the
Secretary would have been
too busy. I do know,
however, that the secretary
has been the Commissioner's
right hand man this year and
the treasurer is working out
with this all star team, so this
may have been the reason for
not mentioning their names.
Again no implications
involved.
The most amazing thing is


that why would someone
want to spend $14,000 to
enter a tournamentt where the
top prize is only $10,000. I
would think that this amount
of money can go a long way
towards improving the
present facilities.
I know there are a lot of
players who look forward to
this annual trip, but only
eighteen players can be taken.
What about the remaining
players in the league which
totals approximately 182?
Half of these would never
even be invited to the try
outs much less make the
team. Why can't they benefit
some from this $14,000 per
year?
This letter was not meant
to hurt anyone's feelings, nor
was it meant to deprive any

worked hard to make this

up the association who seem
to overlook the fact that
there are more than just
eighteen players in the league,

as well.
GEOFFREY B. STUART
The Bahamas Baseball
Association, in their effort to
raise $11,300 so as to send a
team to the National Baseball
Congress Tournament in
Wichita, Kansas, have
collected $4,000 which is
sufficient to send only 11 of
the 22-member squad for one
week.
The team is expected to be
chosen this afternoon
following workout sessions at
the Queen Elizabeth Sports
Centre. They are scheduled to
leave on Monday.
