Water cut


more


EMERGENCY WORK
that shut down the Blue
Hills desalination plant last
Monday was not
completed Friday as
scheduled and two more
hours have been chopped
from consumers' daily
water supply as a result.
Consumer supplies are now
been curtailed between 6 p.m.
and 5 a.m. daily, a Works
Ministry spokesman confirmed
today.
The Tribune learned of the
new shutdown from a
distraught Shirlea housewife
who 'phoned this newspaper
,ate yesterday to find out if
we had been informed of any
scheduled cuts in the water
supply.
"How do they expect us to
cu.ok, %ash and baki` ,o,'
children when they don't everf
tell us they're going to do
this," she cried into the
'phone. "What's happening to
this country today."
The spokesman for the
Water Department was unable
to give any fresh prognosis on
when the two-million-
gallons-per-day plant will
return to operation, as the
Ministry's top water engineers
were at the plant site and not
immediately available for
consultation.
The spokesman said
discussion with the engineers
yesterday morning raised hopes
that the plant might have been
switched back on yesterday
afternoon and might have
begun actual water production
sometime during the night.
That in fact. has not happened,
the spokesman conceded.
The spokesman has declined
to be any more specific about
the plant's problem than to say
that "certain emergency work"
had to be carried out.
When the plant was shut
down 11 days ago supplies
were being cut from 8 p.m. to
5 a.m., but for several days
most consumers noticed no
significant difference because
of the Ministry's increased
storage capacity, achieved with
completion of a new high-level
storage tank earlier this year.
"We are now drawing on our
reserves," the spokesman said
today in explaining the
additional two-hour cut, begun
yesterday.
The public has been
incensed as much by the lack
of any Ministry notice of the
cuts as by the cuts themselves.
The first the public knew of
the plant's shutdown and the
resultant planned cuts was a
Tribune report August 12
three days after the shutdown.
The Ministry spokesman said
the engineers had not expected
any difference in supplies to be
noticed before the plant's
scheduled return to operation
LIst li day. because of the
higher storage capacity.
The Aug. 9 shutdown of the
desalnation plant came only
two and a halfl months after
five weeks of extensive annual
maintenance work was
completed.

THANK YOU... 300


pay tribute to two Sisters


TWO SISTERS of the
Benedictine Community of the
Catholic Diocese of Nassau,
Mary Patricia Russell O.S.B.
and Mary Benedict Pratt
O.S.B., were showered with
praise and tributes last night at
an appreciation banquet at the
Sheraton British Colonial Hotel
in their honour.
About 300 persons filled the
Governor's Hall to honour and
show appreciation to Sister
Russell for the services she has
rendered to Bahamians for the
past 15 years but particularly
to "thank her" for her seven
years of leadership at St.
Martin's Convent on Nassau
Street.
They also came to endorse
the decision of 22 Benedictine
Sisters who elected Sister Pratt
to succeed Sister Russell as
regional superior.
The principal speaker at last
night's function was M.P. for
Fort Charlotte, Earl
Thompson, in whose
constituency St. Martin's
Convent is situated.
Mr. Thompson said Sister
Russell had received her early
education at Eight Mile Rock
Public School and furthered
her high school training at
Aquinas College in Nassau. "It
was at this time that she began
to make up her mind that she
was receiving a call from God
to go and do his will." he said.
He said further that she
never hesitated to heed that
call but moved firmly in the
direction of the Convent,
which she entered in 1954. She
then entered the College of St.
Benedict in St. Joseph's.
Minnesota and received a
degree in Primary Education at
that school.

Dawada Jawara was in Nassau
today accompanied by Lady
Jawara, Consul General Horst
Sommers and Mrs. Sommers
and a personal assistant, ADC
Assistant Commander Ome

"Having embarked on her
chosen field, she returned to
this country and opened the
Holy Redeemer School on Cat
Island," Mr. Thompson said.
According to the National
Insurance Chairman, Sister
Russell was active from her
youth "and to a certain extent,
can be looked upon as a
self-made person."
"Despite her activeness and
envolvements," he continued,
"she is basically a very shy and
bashful person. She commands
the respect however, of all her
fellow members in the Convent
and a great deal of respect in
the community outside the
Convent."
He said further that the
Convent, under her leadership,
had made great strides "and I
am sure that the pace and
standards she has set will keep
the Convent in the focus of the
community at large."
The decision to elect a
regional superior this year was
made at a meeting in December
last year when Mother Evin
Rademacher, prioress of St.
Benedict's Convent, discussed
this with the whole community
of the Bahamas Benedictine
sisters.
Before the election in April
Sister Russell declined
nomination and asked that
other leaders be called forth. In
September, she will assume
duties as Headmistress of the
Catholic School in Hunter's,
Grand Bahama.
Speaking of Sister Pratt, Mr.
Thompson said that she
attended" public school in
Clarence Town, Long Island
and was always the centre of


scholastic success. "Her father
at one time thought that she
would be a doctor or a lawyer
but little Mary Benedict had
her own ideas and always knew
she wanted to become a Nun.
Like Sister Russell, Sister
Pratt also attended the College
of St. Benedict in Minnesota
where she received a degree in
Primary Education. In 1969
she went to Barry College in
Miami and one year later.
received her Masters Degree in
Reading.
Mr. Thompson sail that
Sister Pratt taught at St. Bede's
School and later become head
of St. Joseph's School.
"Sister Benedict comes into
the job (as head of St. Martin's
Convent) highly qualified and
equally experienced. She
knows her sister nuns and the
Convent." Hie charged further
that she is eager to cooperate
and receive cooperation.
He then asserted that with
determination and a strong
will, every girl in the Bahamas
could become as successful as
Sisters Pratt and Russell. "It is
not our success that matters
with God, but rather our will.
our effort, and our resolve to
make His cause, ours."
In a short address Monsignor
John Finger said that the
influence the two Sisters have
made on the lives of Bahamians
"can never be measured." lHe
added that it was not an easy
task to bring the message of
God to people as the
"dedicated" Sisters did, "the
life one lives has to pla\ a great
part."
The Appreciation Banquet
was organized by a group of
ladies from St. Joseph's Church
headed by Mrs. Doris Bullard.


POTASH

THREAT T

LED TO

BLAZE,

COURT

TOLD
DET. CHARLES
Miller told the Supreme
Court murder trial today that
Joseph B. Mather said he
burned his sweetheart to
death after she threatened to
throw potash in his eye on
the morning of March 2.
Miller, who said he wrote a
statement volunteered by the
accused, Mather, on March
10, gave his testimony
following a short trial within
a tr;al as the defence
contested the admissability of
the purported confession.
Mather. represented by
attorney J. Henry Bostwick,
went on trial yesterday
accused of murdering his
sweetheart, Doreen Strachan,
and setting fire to the home
of Mrs. Mildred Archer.
Miller, called to testify by
Solicitor General Langton
Hilton, said he saw Mather on
March 10 at the C.I.D. office.
He was given a voluntary
statement by the accused
after he had questioned him.
Miller said he told Mather
he was suspected of' killing
Strachan, a 43-year-old
Mason's Addition woman
employed by Archer. Her
partly charred body was
found on the floor of the
badly burned bedroom by
firemen.
In the statement, read by
Miller, Mather recorded that
he walked Strachan to work
around 9 a.m. on March 2.
They had an argument and
she accused him of having
another girl-friend. ,
She claimed her rival was
his"'mployer because he was
not charging her anything for
his work.
The statement said she hit
him with a bottle and he
slapped her. She then
threatened to throw potash
on him as she had done
sometime before, injuring his
left eye.
She went inside the house
and he left the yard tor a bar
where he had a few drinks.
He returned to the house
after leaving the bar.
He found a bottle of
kerosene oil in the kitchen
and he sprinkled it on the
floor where she slept and lit
it. He then left the house.
The statement also
recorded that he went to the
St. Joseph's Parish priest (Fr.
John Sullivan) after he
"could not sleep" and made a
confession. The priest told
him he was unable to turn
him over to police unless he
wanted, the statement said.
He decided to go to the
police and tell them and
eventually took them to the
house and showed them the
door he entered, the
statement said.
Defence attorney Bostwick
yesterday applied for the
court to subpoena the parish
priest, whom he found
difficult to approach on the
matter.

FNM DRAWS UP CONVENTION PLANS


THE FNM'S Central Council is to meet at
party headquarters in the Dewgard Plaza on
Sunday to make final arrangements for the
organisation's convention this year, tentatively
scheduled for early November, chairman
Senator Orville Turnquest confirmed today.
He also confirmed that he has named Sen.
Garnet Levarity, Dr. Paul Albury and former
FNM leader Cecil V. Wallace Whitfield as
members of the FNM Candidates Committee,
the body that screens potential candidates and
decides who will carry the party's banner into


elections.
It is Mr. Whitfield's first active role in
politics since he lost both the FNM leadership
and his St. Agnes House of Assembly seat in
the 1972 general elections.
Sen. Turnquest said the three appointees
join himself, FNM Leader Kendal Isaacs and
secretary general Clifford Cooper on the
Candidates Committee.
The three top officers of the FNM are ex
officio members of the Candidates Committee.


Liat airline 'looks promising'


BRIDGETOWN, BAR-
BADOS With the collapse
of the British holiday
firm Court Line, the Barbados
Advocate -News said Monday it
saw the future of the Court
subsidiary airline, LIAT,
"looking even more promising
within a West Indian context."
LIAT, which is based in
Antigua, serves 22 destinations
in the eastern Caribbean and is
the only scheduled carrier
between many of the
Windward and Leeward
Islands. Its future is now being
discussed in London between a
committee appointed by
Windward and Leeward Islands
governments, the British
government and Court Line
representatives.
The Advocate-News noted
that Prime Minister Errol
Barrow has indicated Barbados
would back a takeover of the
airline by regional
governments.
The governments of the
other territories which now
rely on LIAT as their chief air
link can be expected to feel as
strongly about retaining its
services, the paper added.
The timing of the situation
makes the possibility of a joint
enterprise between the more


developed and the less
developed governments of the
Commonwealth Caribbean
"most promising," the
Advocate-News said.
"With this type of spirit now
emanating throughout the area
and with the known
importance of the airline in the
communications system of a


large number of CARICOM
territories the way ahead
should be clear," the paper
declared. "It should not be
fraught with the type of
pettiness that has from time to
time handicapped a proper
understanding between the
territories." (AP)


Vesco probe go-ahead


SAN JOSEC ('OSTA RICE
The Costa Rican Government
will go ahead with an
investigation of fugitive
financier Robert L. Vesco
despite his denial weapons
were smuggled for him from
the United States, the Public
Security ministry said.
"i'm not persecuting
anyone, I'm simply
investigating in order to avoid
injustices," Public Security
Minister Mario Charpentier
told the Associated Press in an
interview.
"Mr. Vesco is a foreigner
living in Costa Rica and he
must respect the laws of this
country," Charpentier said.
Earlier he had said that if
Vesco had any guns he should
turn them over to the
government immediately.

Vesco sent a letter to
Charpentier denying the
smuggling charges as
"ridiculous and absurd."
In the letter, Vesco claimed
that the aricraft allegedly used
to transport the weapons was
not his and added, "for a
number of years I have not
lived in the U.S. and wish to
continue living in Costa Rica,
which has more peace and
harmony than anywhere else in
the world. I support the laws
of this country and deny the
false allegations."
According to one source, the
weapons were used to arm
Vesco's bodyguards in his
Costa Rican hideaway, and call
girls were said to have been
procured by a Los Angeles
madam named Betty
Alexander.
Vesco and Charpentier have
not mentioned the prostitutes.

Queen's

plane

'buzzed'
LONDON-A plane carrying
Queen Elizabeth was involved
in an incident with U.S. jet
fighters over West Germany
last March British Airways said
today.
A spokesman for the state
airline said German air traffic
control ordered an inquiry, but
its findings have not been made
known in Britain.
Earlier the London Evening
News reported four Phantoms
buzzed the Queen's aircraft, a
British Airways VC10, at
33,000 feet over Karlsruhe on
March 13. It said one theory
was the U.S. jets were using the
plane as a dummy target.
British Airways said:
"American Phantoms were
sighted by the captain of our
aircraft, but not close enough
to warrant a near miss report.
But he reported the incident to
air traffic control. We were
obeying all the rules at the
time."
The Phantoms came from
the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization's base at
Wuertsberg. The Queen was
flying to Bali for a state visit to
Indonesia. (AP)


I'm not cut out

to be a no. 2 guy'


ALBANY, New York -
"The Vice President is
standby equipment,"
Nelson Rockefeller used to
say. "I don't think I'm cut
out to be a No.2 type of a
guy."
But that was when
Rockefeller was a live
candidate for the
presidency, back in 1964
and 1968.
Now, the Vice Presidency
offered him by President
Ford is probably
Rockefeller's last chance for
national office.
Still, nobody who
watched the multimillion-
aire's career as Governor of
New York could deny that
he does not appear to be
"cut out to be a No. 2 type
of a guy," and that might
make his tenure in the vice
presidency an interesting
one.
For 15 eventful years,
Rockefeller dominated the

DUBLIN Nineteen Irish
Republican Army members
blasted through two walls of
the maximum security Port-
laoise prison Sunday and
escaped in hijacked cars.
Prison officials called it the
most daring jailbreak in Irish
history.
Among the 19 was Kevin
Mallon, a leader of the IRA
Provisional wing officials said.
Other sources said Martin
McGuinness, former chief of
the provisionals in
Londonderry, also broke out
but this was not confirmed
officially.

state's politics and
government like a titan. He
obviously relished the
power he acquired and took
a zestful pride in the things
he accomplished with it.
When he resigned as
Governor last December, he
did so under a carefully
contrived plan to put
himself in position for
power in the White House in
1976.
He was 65 at the time. He
is 66 now and would be 68
in 1976 older than any man
ever elected president but
he was as ambitious and
vigorous as ever.
Much of the debate
leading up to the selection
of a Vice President focused
on conservatives' allegations
that Rockefeller is too
liberal for a Republican(
administration, and on his
defenders' assertions that
he had become more
conservative in recent years.

OUT OF IR
50 miles southwest of Dublin,
originally said only eight had
escaped but' a count of
prisoners raised the number to
19.
"We've got roadblocks all
over the country, tracker dogs
out, helicopters and help from
the army," Irish police said.
Police leave throughout the
country was canceled and
troops were ordered on alert.
The prison had housed
convicted members of the IRA
since three members -
including Mallon escaped by
helicopter from Dublin's
Mountjoy Prison in 1973.
Mallon later was recaptured.


WASHINGTON
President Ford today
nominated Nelson A.
Rockefeller to be Vice
President, calling the
former New York
Governor "a good partner
for me and I think a good
partner for our country
and the world."
The choice is subject to
Congressional confirmation,
which is a virtual certainty.
Rockefeller, at Ford's side in
the Oval Office of the
President, said he came to the
job in "very serious times,"
requiring the closest
cooperation between Congress
and the White House.
"They also require the
dedication of every American
to our common national
interest," Rockefeller said. He
said Ford's dedication and
openness already have
"reawakened faith and hope"
in America.
Rockefeller said Americans
have the will, determination
and ability "to overcome the
hard realities of our times."
"I'm optimistic about the
long term future," Rockefeller
said.
With that, Congressional
leaders and the Cabinet,
assembled for the nationally
televised announcement,
applauded the new Vice
President-designate.
Ford said he made the
choice "after a great deal of
soul searching," after
considering the advice of
members of Congress and
Republican leaders around the
country.
"It was a tough call for a
tough job," Ford said.
Ford said Rockefeller was "a
person whose long *record of
accomplishments in the
government and outside is well
known."
Rockefeller, 66, served 15
years as Governor of New
York, resigning last November
to head his own commission on
the problems facing America.
Rockefeller had twice run
for the White House. His
resignation was widely
regarded as a move to position

The cool, gentle


murdered envoy


WASHINGTON Rodger
Paul Davies, the murdered
American Ambassador to
Cyprus, was known by state
department inmates as a
quiet, bright diplomat and one
of the rising stars of the foreign
service.
The 53-year-old Californian
is the third American
ambassador murdered s.nce
1968 while serving abroad.
Nine other American Embassy
officials were killed in the last
decade.
Davies was in his first post as
Ambassador. He was sent to
Nicosia three months ago after
12 years in other department
jobs.
A close friend said Davies
Shad been kept in Washington
an unusually long time because
of the illness of his wife, who
died last year.
Their two children, Ann, 20,
and John, 15, were evacuated
with other American
dependents from Cyprus about
two weeks ago as tensions
mounted on the island.
"I don't think there was
anything we could have done,"
John Gatch, a department
specialist in combatting
terrorism, said about the attack
on the embassy. "It had the
normal protection and they
were certainly highly alert to


any danger that could have
come."
But Gatch said Davies was
apparently struck by a
high-powered rifle. "It looks
like this demonstration just
blew up. like these things do,"
he said.
Last week, Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger sent
Davies a telegram
complimenting him on his
handling of the Cyprus
situation.
"He was one of our real
stars, one of the best guys in
the foreign service, in a
position of high responsibility
early in his career," said Gatch,
who served with Davies in
Libya and Iraq.
Other department officials
described Davies as cool, gentle
and very human. He was tall
and grey-haired and invariably
wore dark blue suits. (AP)

1976.
Before striding from the
Oval Office, Rockefeller
walked down the line of
Congressional leaders and
Cabinet officers who were
present for Ford's
announcement, shaking hands
.and accepting smiling
congratulations.
The ceremony was brief but
carefully orchestrated, Ford
entering from a side door to
the Oval Office desk he
assumed 11 days ago upon the
resignation of Richard Nixon.
It was only last October that
Ford himself was nominated
for the Vice Presidency by
Nixon, under the then-untested
procedures of the 25th
amendment to the
constitution.
Before he uttered
Rockefeller's name, Ford
traced the record of the former
governor: service in the State
Department under two
presidents, in the Department
of Health, Education and
Welfare, as Governor of New
York longer than any other
man.
"He is known across the
land as a person dedicated to
the free enterprise system, a
person who is recognized
abroad for his talents, for his
dedication to making this a
peaceful world," Ford said.
"After a long and very
thoughtful process, I have
made the choice and that
choice is Nelson Rockefeller of
New York state," he said. (AP)


Greek army

chiefs

ousted
ATHENS The
commander-in-chief of the
Greek armed forces and other
top members of the army
command were ousted
Monday, the government
announced.
General Gregory Bonanos
was removed as armed forces
chief as well as nine other
generals, including army chief
Andreas Galatsanos.
The purge appeared to be a
move to further strengthen
the civilian government hold
over the armed forces by
Premier Constantive
Caramanlis.
Appointed as armed forces
head was General Dionysios
Arbouzis who had been
dismissed from the army in
Dec. 1967 for taking part in
King Constantine's abortive
attempt to oust the military
junta.
General loannis Davos
became army chief. Davos
was known for his opposition
to the military junta and
favoured Caramanlis's return
from self exile in Paris to
lead a civilian government
after the junta decided to
return to their barracks on
July 24.


29 US

ideas

at sea

talks
CARACAS, Venezuela
The United States has
presented to the world sea
conference 29 proposal
concerning economic zones at
sea and the use of continental
shelves off national coastlines.
The nrooosals. introduced
b:' chief U.S. delegate John R.
Steenson, included i
reiteration of U.S. support for
the right of nations to control
economic activities within 200
miles of their shores. Such
activities would include oil
drilling, construction and use
of artificial islands and
installations.
The principle of a 200-mile
zone has already won wide
acceptance at the 148-nation
meeting, known as the Third
United Nations Law of the Sea
Conference. The United States
announced its backing for such
zones July 11.
The U.S. proposals also said
coastal countries should
"ensure the full utitilization ,t
renewable resources" within
their ecomonic zones, such as
fish species that multiply when
properly managed.
In addition, they would give
coastal states exclusive rights
over their continental shelves.
T.iere is no precise definition il
present of where continental
shelves end, but this is
expected to be worked out in
the future.

NEW YORK Police say a
27-year-old officer was shot
and killed in Queens last night
during what started out as a
routine driver's licence check.
The dead policeman, the
third to be killed in the city
this year, was identified as
Tomas Pegoes, a one-year
member of the force who lived
in the Long Island city section
of Queens.
Police say he died at Mary
Immaculate Hospital of two
bullet wounds in the upper
back shortly after the shooting,
which occurred in a high-crime
neighbourhood.
Police said Pegues was shot
after he had frisked and
handcuffed the driver of the
car, while the car's only
passenger was still seated inside
a vehicle.
Hours later, police said they
had not recovered the murder
weapon and were still
investigating to determine who
had fired the fatal shots.
Seized at the scene were
27-year-old Hylton Steward,
the driver of the car, and the
passenger, 19-vcar-old John

How history is made

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(T77is is the third article in a series I am writing on world
figures who have passed across my horizon, some of whom have
played an important role in shaping the history of the Bahamas.)
GRAND CAYMAN, July 25. We have many friends in
England but on our visits there we have made sure to see three
men who served in the Bahamas and a fourth who has had a
connection with these islands as an undersecretary of state for the
colonies.
They are Major General Sir Robert Neville, Sir Raynor Arthur,
governors, Sir Alan Burns. Colonial Secretary, and Sir Nigel
Fisher, Undersecretary.
I have written a great deal about Sir Robert and Sir Raynor in
this column and so my readers know a great deal about them.
Unfortunately Sir Raynor was killed earlier this year in a hunting
accident when he was thrown from his horse. Sir Nigel presided
over the constitutional conference in London in 1963 when the
Bahamas received its first written constitution. The following
year he represented Her Majesty the Queen at a ceremony on
Clifford Park when the new constitution was brought into effect.
Sir Alan belongs to a much earlier period. He served in the
Bahamas as Colonial Secretary from 1924 to 1929 and ended his
colonial career as Governor General of the Gold Coast (Ghana).
Later lie served as Britain's Permanent Representative at the U.N.
and, because of his wide experience in colonial affairs, he was
often called into the Colonial Office in London for consultation.
Born and raised in St. Kitts, West Indies, the son of English
parents, Sir Alan was one of the oldest men to serve in the
Bahamas and today at 87 years of age he is still physically fit and
his mind is as sharp as a steel trap.
Sir Alan was the last British colonial official to be elected to
the House of Assembly in the Bahamas. He represented the
Western District. Under the constitution drafted in 1963 public
servants are no longer allowed to serve in the Legislature.
Under the Representative form of Government in the islands
until the new constitution was established in 1964, the Governor
was the Chief Executive officer in the colony. The Colonial
Secretary ranked second.
Except on the few rare occasions when a Colonial Secretary or
an Attorney General, or a Receiver General and Treasurer
secured a seat in the House, the senior Bahamian member of the
Executive Council in the House filled the position of Leader of
the Government, a post similar to that of Prime Minister in the
1964 constitution when the Bahamas moved up to Responsible
Government in a colony of Britain. In July one year ago, the
islands became an independent state.
When Sir Alan entered the House he outranked the local man
and so he became spokesman for the government.
Leader of the Govdrnment in the House was considered a great
plum by Bah.amians as it was a stepping stone to Presidency of
the Legislative Council (now Senate) and a knighthood.

Because of the fact that Sir Alan had displaced a popular
Bahamian as Leader of the Government he functioned under a
handicap, both in the Executive Council and the House of
Assembly, but this man was so clever that he outsmarted his
opposition on almost every issue.
Sir Charles Orr was governor of the colony during this period
but Sir Alan so completely dominated the government and the
Legislature that his time in the islands was labelled "tie Burns
regime".

Two amusing things happened during his regime.
The office of Chief Justice became vacant. Sii Alan brought a
message from the Governor informing the House that a suitable
replacement could not be found unless the salary was increased.
The House was overwhelmingly opposed to this proposal. !h
didn't seem to have a chance of getting through the Legislature.
At that time Hector Josephs was the only black Attorney
General in the British Colonial Empire. Hlie was stationed in
Jamaica. I think he was a native of the island.
Black Jamaicans were very pleased to have him there. It is said
that whenever a big social function was taking place large crowds
would gather around to see whether "Massa Hector" had been
invited. When he arrived it was whispered through the crowd
"Massa Hector come" and the crowd would then disperse.
This is something Old Guard leaders in the Bahamas did not
understand. All the coloured people wanted at that time was
reasonable representation. And when it was denied them they
decided that white leadership had to be destroyed. This has
happened only because the Old Guard throughout all Britain's
empire did not voluntarily yield enough, early enough. The
results have been disastrous.
This has been a century of awakening for the dark races all
over the world. They have pushed their European overlords out
of the driver's seat because, all along the line, they yielded loo
little, too late.
But now let me tell you about Hector Josephs.
I don't know who did it but someone started two rumours
among members of the House.


The white members were told that if the salary wasn't
increased the only person the Colonial Office could send to the
Bahamas as Chief Justice was this black Attorney General.
The black members of the House were told that if the salary
were increased it would be attractive enough for Hector Josephs
to be selected for the post.
I am told that on the day before the House met Sir Alan had
two visitors ... at different times.
The leader of the white group in the House went to see him to
ask him whether it was true that Hector Josephs would be sent to
the colony if the salary were not increased.
"It is possible." I am told was Sir Alan's noncommittal reply.
Then the coloured member went to see him. He wanted to
know if the salary were increased they would get Hector
Josephs.
"-It is possible," Sir Alan replied.
me When the motion was put to the House thie next night every
member ... except mie ... voted for it. I had not been influenced
'by the rumours because I have never been concerned about a
man's colour.
The government gotl the salary> increase tor tile office of Chief
Justice ... but Hector Josephs was not given the appointment
Later events proved that Sir Alan was right in pressing for an
increase in the salai\ of the Chief Jusiice because, even with the
increase, at a late peliod the Colonial Office could 101 fill the
position of Chief Justice because the salary was still! inadequate.
On that occasion the colony was obliged to accept a man who
did not possess all the qualifications for the post stipulated under
-the Act. This was Sir Richard Tute. a mature man who had been
an ongaeer and took law late in life. He had not served at the Bar

Speaking as


a Christian


EDITOR, The Tribune,
If I may, I would like to
make a few points about two
paragraphs that were published
in a letter in last, Monday
evening's paper.
I will begin by saying that I
am not speaking for any
religious group, but am
speaking personally, as a
Christian.
There are many points to
which I would like to refer, but
I will just speak on two special
ones.
Firstly, the writer said that
she does not pretend or profess
to be a Christian.
How then, may I ask, can
someone tell you about New
York if he or she has never
been there? I think they would
have to say only what they
heard about the place.
One can dress half-naked,
and walk down Bay Street,
dance and carouse ,all night
long, and someone would say:
"Oh my! that's a lot-of fun." It
would draw the crowds, and
that's great. But if a few sisters
or brothers were to stand in
Rawson Square, or even on


By The Associated Press
Today is Tuesday, August
20th, the 232nd day of 1974.
There are 133 days left in the
year.
HIGHLIGHTS in history on
this date:
1974 U.S. President
Richard Nixon says his order
for secret bombing in
Cambodia in 1969 had been
"absolutely necessary" to save
American lives.
1972 Worst floods in
nearly half a century in South
Korea take toll of about 400
lives.
1970 United States and
Mexico agree that centre line
meandering Rio Grande River
will serve as border. between
the two countries; French and
South African submarines are
involved in surface collision in
Mediterranean off Toulon,
France, killing five French
sailors.
1969 Death toll from
hurricane climbs to 283 in
disaster areas of state of
Mississippi.
1968 Soviet Union and
other Warsaw Pact nations
invade Czechoslovakia to crush
Alexander Dubcek's liberal
regime.
1962 Malta requests
independence within British
Commonwealth after
breakdown of talks for
financial aid.
1955 Anti-French riots
break out in Morocco.
1953 Doctor Mussadiq,
Premier of Persia, ig. arrested;
demonstrations are staged

by Nyasaland Africa Congress;
France deposes Sultan of

saying one should repent of his
sins, we would say: 'There
goes. a bunch of crazy lieople."
No one would stop to listen.
But this is what being a
Christian is all about. Letting
others know that the same way
they had to repent of their sins
and accept the gospel of Jesus
Christ, every person who is a
sinner must do the same thing.
Secondly, the writer also
went on to say that it frightens
her to hear religious leaders so
silent. In Proverbs 14th
chapter, 34th verse, it says:
"Righteousness exalteth a
nation, but sin is a reproach to,
any people." Isaiah 58th
chapter Ist verse says,"Cry
aloud, spare not, lift up thy
voice like a trumpet, and shew
my people their transgressing,
and the house of Jacob their
sins.
When we stand on the street
corners, saying thus saith the
Lord, we are crying aloud,
letting men and women, boys
and girls know that the word
of God says in St. James Ist.

William Allen White, U.S.
writer (1868-1944).


the period required for appointment to the post. The Legislature
passed a special Sir Riihard Tute Act which enabled him to take
the post.
The other amusing incident took place while. Sir Alan was
acting Governor of the colony. He decided to visit some of the
islands in a sloop of the Royal Navy. Mayaguana, the most
southeasterly island in the Bahamas, was included in the itinerary.
Mayaguana was the Cinderella in the Bahamas. No one except
perhaps the Inspector of Schools visited this island. Although it
was under the administration of the Commissioner at liagua this
official seldom visited the island. Transportation was difficult and
so some Commissioners served out their full term at Inagua
without crossing over to Mayaguana.
About every six months the Commissioner hired a small sloop
and sent the mail to Abrahams Bay and it took another six
months to filter down to the other settlements as there were no
roads on the island.
No governor had ever set foot on Mayaguana and so this visit
by Sir Alan was to be the biggest event in the history of the
island. On the appointed day all the people in the village ... men,
women and children ... donned their best clothes and marched
down to the beach to greet him singing "Nearer My God To
Thee".
This incident caused a great deal of amusement among his
opposition in Nassau because they felt that he really considered
himself a little tin god.

I happened to be his most vigorous critic. I fought him in the
House and in The Tribune on just about every issue.
Why did I do this?
I will try to answer this question tomorrow.

L think that it might be interesting to recall the tragedy that
overtook the H.M.S. sloop after it had brought Sir Alan safely
back to Nassau.
On its way back to Bermuda. where Britain still maintained the
powerful America and West Indies naval station, the Valerian
capsized in a hurricane with heavy loss of life.
Newspapers reported that a school of hungry sharks moved in
on the men in the water and ate a lot of them.
Sharks become very excited in unsettled weather. I had an
experience with a school of sharks off the coast of JaLIilca in
1916 just before a disastrous hurricane struck the island but
that's a story for another time and another place.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
God of our fathers, known of old.
Lord of our far-flung battle-line.
Beneath whose awful hand we hold
Dominion over palm and pine -
Lord God of Hosts. be with us yet.
Lest we forget -- lest we forget! KIPLING


when it hath conceiveth, it
bringeth forth sins: and sin
when it is finished, bringeth
forth death." Also Romans 6th
chapter, 23rd. verse says: "For
the wages of sin is death, but
the gift of God is eternal life,
through Jesus Christ our
Lord." They refuse to believe
that and instead of taking heed
to the word of God, they
would mock you, and as
Jeremiah 5uh Chapter, 3rd.
verse said: "Oh Lord, are not
thine eyes on the truth? Thou
hast stricken them, but they
have not grieved: thou hast
consumed them, but they have
not received correction; they
have made their faces harder
than a rock; they have refused
to return."
Look around you, fellow
Bahamians, answer for
yourselves. Have you ever seen
people so bold and boasting in
wrong doings as they are now?
Then, when they are being
punished for some of the
wrong things they have done,
someone would say what are
the Christians doing about it ?
God himself said in Proverbs
1st. chapter, 24th verse:
"Because I have called ye and
ye refused: I have stretched
out my hand, and no man
regarded. I also will laugh at
your calamity.; I will mock
when your fear cometh."
We live in a time when
people want to do anything
that is against the law of God
and man, then the Christians
must pat them on the back and
say that it is right.
There's so much that I can
say, but in my conclusion,
whether we believe the law is
just or not, I want to say here
that the Judge of all Judges
will soon be here, not as a
Saviour pleading for mercy,
but to bring righteous
judgment upon all, regardless
of who we might be.
Jesus said, "and behold, I
come quickly and my reward is
with me to give every man
according as his work shall be"
Revelations 22nd. chapter,
12th verse.
God help us all to be ready.

EDITOR THE TRIBUNE,
As the general Bahamian
public may or may not know,
there is going to be a
month-long black arts festival
in Nigeria in November of next
year.
This is going to be an
extremely significant event for
the world as a whole and, not
only for the black world,
although it i.5 obviously going
to have special significance for
us.
It means that, contrary to
what the other ethnic groups
and cultures tell us about the
superiority of theirs and the
inferiority and barbarity of
ours, we not only disbelieve
them at last but we, in fact,
feel sufficiently proud of and
confident in our culture to put
it on display. So Christianity
has failed in its mission as a
fifth-column ideology
intending to destroy our
identity and to impose a
foreign one upon us.
When they tell us the
calypso medium is sinful, as is
our type of dance: and that
their opera and ballet are not
only superior culture but good
and christian and that they
will, no doubt, be found in
heaven, we recognize the
attempt for what it is
colonialist propaganda!
That's what I see this
fantastic project as proving.
And much more, of course.
That is why representatives of
the best of our teachers, artists,
writers, actors, thinkers
young and old ought to be
there. It will give them
excellent examples, a clear
sense of direction, pride, hope,
encouragement and th2-
Bahamas will certainly benefit
quite soon thereafter from it.
We have never appreciated
out entertainers. We were
always told those professions
were sinful and to be avoided
and as a result they only
attracted the least admirable
characters (who could not "fall
any lower anyway"); and then
they told us: '" see what we
mean: see what happens to you
when you live that kind of
life?"
Every country needs to be
entertained especially one
that depends on tourism. I
repeat: we do not respect our
entertainers and indeed, we
hive a certain suspicion of and
disrespect for them. And yet.
strangely, we have always
adored other countries'
entertainers like Frank Sinatra,

Chimps instead of kids?


George says


"no!"


By Abigail Van Buren
DEAR ABBY: An anthropologist wrote to you recently,
advocating the rearing of chimpanzees instead of children.
He stated that one can always sell a mature, healthy chimp
to a zoo when it became hard to handle (and at twice what
he paid for it), and facetiously went on to ask, what zoo
would take a human? Herein lies a serious misconception.
The zoos DO NOT want these former pets! Lately, since
exotic pets have become fashionable, zoos around the
country have been swamped with "offers" to take chimps,
ocelots, cheetahs, birds, fowl, lizards, etc. off the hands of
those who had no idea what they were getting into when
they purchased the young creatures.
These cast-offs are usually refused because former pets
make poor zoo specimens. Their health may be suspect,
their behavior neurotic, or they may be simply unable to
cope with their new environment. Then, too, zoos have better
sources of supply-their own breeding programs, for
example.
So the buyer of such a pet must acknowledge the fact that
he'll have to keep it for its lifetime. It's either that, or return
it to a wild state in which it can no longer survive, try to
find a shelter that'll accept it, or the easy way out-have it
destroyed.
Abby, please appeal to self-styled animal lovers, or status
seekers, to resist buying a wild animal unless they are
prepared to learn how to raise it and give it a good life.
Otherwise, the animal suffers, the environment suffers, and
so does the owner. They shouldn't buy it and then expect
the zoo to bail them out after the novelty has worn off.
That's not what zoos are for. Instead, suggest they write to
The Fund For Animals, 140 W. 57th St., New York, N.Y.
10019, and ask for free information on exotic pets.
GEORGE TAYLOR

DEAR GEORGE: Thanks for speaking for our furred
and feathered friends who can't speak for themselves.
DEAR ABBY: If you were ,elected President of the
United States, what is the first thing you'd do? N.Y. FAN
DEAR FAN: The same as Clare Boothe Lace. I'd ask for
a recount!
DEAR ABBY: My 55-year-old wife (in name only for the
last 10 years) and I are having a disagreement, and want
you to settle it.
My wife telephoned a local dinner and dance spot and
reserved a table for two near the orchestra on a Saturday
night. This was confirmed, but when she and her friend (a
widow) showed up, they were told there were no tables
available in the room with the orchestra. She argued that
she had reservations, but to no avail. They were seated in
another room, away from the orchestra and dance floor.
When my wife asked me why I thought she and her friend
were treated this way, I said: "If two unescorted women
dine together, it could give the place a bad name, because
the women could be (1) Lesbians, or (2) looking to pick up
men."
Do you think I was wrong in my evaluation?
THE MALE VIEW

DEAR MALE: Your "evaluation" is not necessarily
correct. But whether or not a public dining and dancing
establishment can lawfully discriminate against women
without male escorts is another matter. If two women elect
to dine toarether whom are they hurting?

A road safety campaign is
being conducted by one of
Nassau's automobile dealers,
K.C. Auto Sales Limited of 5th
Terrace Centreville.
The dealer is distributing
i umper stickers bearing slogans
such as "Walk Right: Face
Oncoming Traffic," and
"Pedestrians: Sidewalks are
Safer".
A spokesman for the
company said this idea was
= born out of the obvious
disregard for basic safety rules
h\ pedestrians.
Very often, he said,
- pedestrians are seen walking on
the roadway instead of the
sidewalks provided. Another
common fault of Bahamian
pedestrian's he added, is the
walk on the left side of the
road. They would be much
safer walking on the right side
where they would see
oncoming traffic, thus enabling
them to react more swiftly to
danger.
Because our streets are
narrow, both the problems
mentioned are heightened.
K.C. is suggesting that those
who display the slogan, "Walk
-Right: Face Oncoming Traffic"
should do so on the left side of
the rear bumper of the vehicle.


Illis way, those who walk on
the left side of the road can
more easily read them as the
car passes.
"If these bumper stickers


"save one life, or prevent one
accident, they will be
worthwhile," the spokesman
said.
The bumper stickers are


made of durable vinyl, with red
lettering on white and yellow
backgrounds. They may be
obtained from the office of
K.C. Auto Sales Ltd.


GOVERNOR-GENERAL
Sir Milo Butler and Lady
Butler made their first official
visit to Abaco August 12-15.
H is Excellency was
accompanied by Minister of
Agriculture. Fisheries and
Local Government Anthony
Roberts, and the two MPs,


Paul Cartwright, an employee of KC Auto Sales Ltd, displaying road safety bumper
stickers being distributed by that company in a special road safety campaign.

Although not gifted with musical talents,
like others in the Munnings clan, John
Munnings better known as "Uncle" to his


many friends because of his benevolence is
a perfectionist in his own right. His talent
lies in his ability to make fascinating models
of boats out of gumelemi a native soft
wood that grows profusely on many of the
Bahama Islands.
"I've always been intrigued by boats
and the sea". he said, holding one of the
smaller models in his hands and carefully
flicking a speck of dust from its recently
painted hull. "I came from an Out Island
and as a boy can remember carving boats out
of gumelemi with a kitchen knife. You see,
money was scarce in those days and if one
wanted toys, then they had to make them",
Munnings says his building process today
is much more intricate and time-consuming.
"Because these boats are built on such a
small scale, and primarily from a single piece


of wood.,

The first phases in the
building process, as outlined by
Munnings, are the felling and
stripping of the tree. Then
comes the cutting of the log to
the size required. Later the hull
is hacked out with the hatchet
and the inside scraped to a
hollow.
Munnings is quick to point
out, however, that gumelemi is
a soft wood that deteriorates
very quickly and therefore
must be protected from
breaking up.
"To do this I generally paint
the inside of the hull with
fibreglass resin", he said. "This
process causes the wood grains
to fuse together in a compact
state".
The next stage of the
building is to top the hull with
formica to form the vessel's
deck. The mast is then fitted to
the deck and the hull is
sandpapered, painted to a gloss
and streaked with a thin line of
paint that encircles the hull
just above the waui-line.
The final stage of the
building process is the
attachment of nylon sails
designed by his wife.

people. Use modern methods for best results.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Take a greater
interest in family affairs and forget personal amusements for
the time being. Take it easy tonight.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Showing affection for friends
brings you the favors you need now. Make social appointments
early via telephone. Strive for happiness.

and can accomplish almost anything you set your mind on, so
make the most of this very precious time.

creativity is high and you can do much about that.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Make sure you keep the
promises you have made to those in business and the benefits
coming to you. Be more complimentary of mate.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY... he or she will
understand what others want from the relationship, so teach
to cooperate more, especially where big projects are
concerned. Teach to protect and not to take any undue risks.
Your progeny will not care much for sports but will enjoy the
philosophical. Don't neglect ethical training.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel" What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

VINCE LEADS CUBS'




VICTORY MARCH


By GLADSTONE THURSTON
RIGHT FIELDER Vince
Albury, making his first
appearance in this season's
New Providence Softball
Association series knocked in
two runs with a double and a
triple and scored two in
Keyboard Cubs' 10-3 victory
over Freetown Giants last
night.
Entering the game in the top
of the fourth as substitute for
Merill Rodgers, Albuy, known
for his offensive power, clipped
losing pitcher Leroy
Thompson's first delivery for a
run scoring hit deep into left
field.
He brought home short stop
Donnie Lee with Keyboard's
sixth run. Albury went on to
score on an error.
Playing an errorless position,
Albury returned in the sixth
inning and, after collecting a
two ball count scorched the
following pitch up against the
outfield fence driving in Lee
before scoring on third
baseman Albert Rodgers'
single.
"We had to put Vince in the
lineup tonight in case we get
into the playoffs," explained
ma nager Maitland
Martinborough, pleased with
Albury's performance.
Keyboard last night won their
sixth in seven played and their
fifth in a row.
"With the team we have
now, if we play together like
this we should go right
through," said Martinborough,
though not overconfident.
Keyboard loss their only game
to Heineken Stars. "We have
out hitting power back, and I
think the guys are coming
through now. They proved it
tonight."
Keyboard's 12-hit attack
dropped Freetown in a
threeway tie for fourth spot
with Heineken and Customs.
Coke (4-3) and San Sal (4-3)
hold second spot.
Right hand speedster Foster
Bethel was in his usual fiery
form. He struckout eight and
gave up nine hits. He issued no


Basketball

players

must look

at status
COMPETITORS in the
newly formed New Providence
Basketball Association have
been advised by the Bahamas
Amateur Basketball
Association to examine their
status and the status of the
new organization.
In a press release, the
B.A.B.A. pointed out that
some people are deluded into
believing that the N.P.B.A. is in
someway connected to the
B A.B.A.
"The B.A.B.A. would like to
inform the public and the
young athletes of this newly
formed association that this
impression is totally erroneous.
The B.A.B.A. is in no way
responsible for the activities of
this new body."
Since the B.AB.A. is the
governing body for amateur
basketball in the Bahamas and,
the N.P.B.A.'s method otf
organization is in
contravention to the former.
then athletes participating
therein stand liable to being
excluded from the
B.A.B.A.'s activities.
In a press release recently,
Sidney Thompson, executive
chancellor of the N.P.B.A.
asserted that every form of
government and every form of
organization and planning that
is being used today to
effectively handle sports is
failing.
In sports, he noted that
there was much of division.
Everyone, he said was
concerned about getting for


themselves. His association was
"an educational service in the
public interest."
Presently, the N.P.B.A. is
conducting an island-wide
tournament consisting of some
20 clubs.


Picture: VINCENT VA UGHAN
Winning pitcher Foster Bethel picks up his lone hit of the game -a safe bunt.


walks. At bat, he collected one
hit from three plate
appearance.
Using an effective fast ball
with some change ups, Bethel
held Frecetown scoreless during
the third through fifth inning
while Keyboard collected five
runs to break a two all second
inning tie.
Bethel's philosophy is to go
out there and win. And, he
found Freetown to be "just
another team. We expected
them to come bunting, but it
wasn't effective." Bethel is in
much better shape than last
season, so contending teams
should take heed.
Runs by catcher Pat
Demeritte and Lee in the first
inning gave Keyboard a 2-0
lead that was cut by one in the
bottom frame when left fielder
William Whymms scored on
Bill Fox' sacrifice fly.
Leroy Thompson in the
bottom of the second brought
home Danny Thompson with a
run scoring single to notch the
score at two all. Danny got on
with a single and advanced to
third on steals.
However, errors played
havoc with Freetown's defence
in the following frame assisting
Keyboard in scoring three
lead-taking runs. With that the
Giants never recovered from


that setback.
With Albury coming into the
game, they tallied five more
ending with Bernice Sands'
seventh inning rbi single that
scored Barry Carroll.
Freetown's final threat came
in the bottom of the sixth
when they collected three hits
but were able to score only
one. Lynes who led off with a
triple scored on Fox' second
rbi single.
With one down, substitute
right fielder Charles Lloyd
touched off another base hit.
However, when things really
looked like a comeback for the
Giants, pinch hitter Alfred
Butler in an attempted bunt
flied out to the catcher who
made the put out and tagged
Fox who tried to score from
second.

COURAGEOU

INTREPID

OUTSAIL

RIVALS
INTREPID and Courageou
outsailed their rivals, Marine
and Valiant, in Monday's triah
for New York Yacht Club t
select an America's Cup
defender.
It is expected that bot
Mariner and Valiant will be
eliminated from further trials
this week as the long-time
defenders of yachting's most
prestigious race select their
best 12 meter yacht by the
September 3 deadline.
Intrepid came back from a
poor start to sweep ahead of
Mariner at the third mark of
the 24.3 mile course and went
on for a 2:39 victory.
She now leads the final
eliminations with a 4-1 record.
However, at the start, the
canny tactics of Mariners's
skipper, Dennis Conner, forced
Intrepid outside the starting
line buoy, and the two-time
defender had to double back
across the line. It cost Gerry
Driscoll 55 seconds.
Intrepid was 30 seconds
behind at the first mark, cut it
to nine at the third mark and
swung it wide around the
buoy, losing little speed as she
overtook the tin-hulled Mariner
for good.
T he aluminum-hulled
Courageous beat Valiant by
6:40 in the other race.
Courageous was to take on
Mariner today while intrepid
races Valiant.
The southwest winds never
got much higher than five
knots and light air delayed the
start by three hours and
eliminated the final leg.
On Saturday Bob Bavier of
Courageous and Driscoll of
Intrepid sailed the closest
America's Cup trial race in
history. Bavier nosed out the
two-time defender by just two
seconds in a thrilling race.
The French yacht France
and the Australian yacht
Southern Cross sailed Sunday
for crew training and sail
evaluation. These two yachts
begins their best-of-seven series
to decide which of them will
challenge for the America's
Cup next month.
