Teachers in revolt


over


By NICKI KELLY
ALTHOUGH the government fully intends to
implement its National Insurance Scheme on October 7,
the Bahamas Union of Teachers is equally determined
not to cooperate until some decision is reached on the
fIture of the Widows and Orphans Pension Fund.
"We are fully aware that deductions from salary can take place
without our cpnsent, but we will not go through the motions of
cooperating until there is some clarification," Teachers Union
president Leonard Archer said today.
The union instructed its 1300 members in May not to
complete th, registration forms for National Insurance as a means
of pressuring the government into negotiating on the Widows and
Orphans Fund.
The Fund, to which all male civil servants have compulsorily
contributed since 1964, provides the retirement benefits for
officers leaving the service at the age of 65.
"Our position continues to be the same as it was in May. This
is the only way we can register our protest," Mr. Archer said.
Hie told The Tribune that the union has written to Finance
Minister Arthur lianna to ask for a meeting "because the feeling
is that no one should be made to contribute to both National
Insurance and the Pension Fund."
The union president said that the two schemes were separate
entities and it did not necessarily follow that because National
Insurance was introduced, the Pension Fund would automatically
discontinue.
"National Insurance is being administered under the Ministry
of Labour, while the Pension Fund has been under the Ministry
of Finance," he said.


CKREUL

SCHEME

FOR

ELDERLY
WHEN THE National
Insurance scheme comes into
effect on October 7 this year
government have worked out
a "credit" scheme for the
', older meminerb of ,t,-
community to give them
minimum insurance
qualifications for retirement
and invalidity benefits,
Director-designate Byron
Pinder told The Tribune that
to be eligible for retirement
or invalidity benefits a person
must have three years paid
contributions (150).
"But a person could be 62
when the scheme opens and
in order for these persons and
others to be able to get a
minimum pension which'is
30 percent of their insurable
wage government has
decided that those who are
35 years or over will be given
special age credits of 25
credits for each year over 35
years of age up to a total of
600 credits." he said,
And this together with the
150 paid up contributions-
a total of 750 with the credits
will give such persons a
minimum of 30 percent of
their insurable wage, he
added.
When the scheme comes
into effect it will provide for
the following:
Temporary sickness:

Maternity of women
workers:
Retirement from
work on account oi age;
Loss of support
through the death of a
breadwinner:

Loss of work wholly or
partially as a result of
employment injury or loss of
support owing to the death of
a breadwinner, and
The need for medical
care for a person suffering
from employment injury.
It will NOT include
benefits for: general family
allowances; unemployment
benefits: or insurance for the
cost of medical care for the
population as a whole.
The full benefits of the
scheme were outlined by Mr.
Pinder in a speech to the East
Nassau Rotary on Friday,
the full text of which iL
found on page 8 today.

SIDEWALK CONFERENCE: Bahamas Hotel and Catering Workers' Union
president David Knowles, (centre) and secretary, Bobby Glinton, (second from right)
speak with union members during early morning adjournment outside the Chief
Magistrate's court. Fourteen union members face trespassing charges, including union
officers Glinton and Robert Gardiner, resulting from the June 12 demonstration at the
Emerald Beach Hotel. The group, summoned to court this morning, had their case
adjourned until later in the afternoon by Chief Magistrate Wilton Hercules. They are
represented by attorney Jeanne Thompson.

Miami, wife tells court


Mr. Archer acknowledged
that there were technical
difficulties to liquidating the
Fund. the bulk of which has
been sunk into interest-bearing
investments in the United
Kingdom.
The 1971 audited Treasury
accounts s show a cash balance
in the fund of $886,000 plus
$1,491,000 in investments. By
1972 the net worth of the
Fund was estimated at $2.5
nutition .. v'ih additional
contributions and increased
interest on the investments, the
Fund is now very likely past
the $3 million mark.
The executive of the
Teachers Union has scheduled
a special meeting tomorrow
night at which it intends to go
fully into the imminent
implementation of national
insurance.
Mr. Archer pointed out that
under regulations governing the
Pension Fund, the Cabinet can,
in all probability, take the
initiative in halting further
payments to the Fund.
The lUnion's recommenda-
tion is that contributions
should cease immediately and
that an actuary study be made
to ascertain those to whom
pension payments will have to
be made until the first national
insurance benefits become
applicable.
Once this amount has been
determined, says the union, it
should be kept in a special
fund and the remaining sums in
the general Widows and
Orphans Fund redistributed
according to the contribution
made.
Mr. Archer acknowledged
that some union members had
already completed and
submitted their National
Insurance forms before the
union's official "hold back"
edict was issued.
Generally, however,
members have backed the
position of the executive.
Labour and National
Insurance Minister ('lifford
Darling last week tabled the
regulations requisite to
implementing the scheme.
These are due for debate when
hlle House meets again on
September 11.I
Mr. Darhling told The
Tribune later that he
anticipated the long-delayed
national scheme would come
into effect October 7. 'hei
regulations, which first had to
be given Cabinet approval,
were subjected to further
redrafting after an initial
presentation to Cabinet.
Because of the nature of the
legislation, the National
Insurance regulations, unlike
the regulations made under
nost Acts, must be approved
by both Hlouses of the
legislature before becoming
law.

BAlIAMIAN-BORN Basil
Miller, apprehended by
Jamaican authorities in early
June was forcibly taken from
jail and flown to Miami after
being turned over to two
American surety company
agents, without being deported
or extradited his wife,
Nathalie, charged today.
Mrs. Miller, mother of
Miller's two children, aged 9
and 10 years, said her husband
had "to fight before he was
taken off an Air Jamaica
aircraft" by a Jamaican
policeman and Immnigration
officer who accompanied
Miami bail bondsman Fd
Stanton and a Mr. Faibischl
back to Florida with Miller.
"No deportation order was
made and above all no
ext radiation order or
proceedings to surrender him
to the United States courts as a
fugitive" took place to her
knowledge, she said.
Mrs. Miller said she went to
Kingston with her two children
on Saturday, June t6. after her
husband had called her and
asked her to join himi oil
holiday there.
She went "with the two
children to Sutton Place Hotel.
Ruthven Road. St. Andrew's,
and on arrival I was formed
that my husband had been
arrested by Sergeant Grant and
other police officers who were
accompanied by some people
front the United States of
America for possession of
narcotics."
On enquiry, she said she
discovered police tilleers had
searched her husband's hotel
room in his absence and
claimed the\ had I tund
cocaine and ganja (Indian
Ilemip).
"On his return along \\itIt
one Miss Hamilton, a Jamaican
national, they were both
arrested there and then before
they even reached his roonm"i
she charged.
She said the two werec
charged with possessionot o
ganja and cocaine" and "he was
then taken to his room where
his belongings were packed
before being taken off to jail."
She said the police never


made a personal search oft her
husband or the car in which lie
was travelling, to her
knowledge.
Mrs. Miller said she "then
went to Hall Way Tree I'olice
Station and when I did not
find hilm there, went to C(entral
Police Station where he was
held in custody.
"1I was refused permission to
see my husband by the police
who said that Deputy
Commissioner liernande/ said
that no one was allowed to
speak" with him, "neither wife
nor attorney ."
"I asked if some one would
tell him that his wife andi
children were here and thal
was flatly refused," slihe said. "I
left Jamaica on August 13.
From June 6 to August 13
when I left Jaimaica, I could
not see mly husband c\ccpt
when he was in court and xwas
not even then allowed to speak
to himn," she said.
Mrs. Miller said her husbaIlnd
was represented in court by 421
Duke Street Kingston attornc' ,
Ileslop A. Harris, who told her
that lie did not believe police
lound anything on her husband
although tlie\ said their'
discovered hcill in possession ol
ganja and cocaine.
She said Harris was paid a
retainer's tee of S1.500 and
failed to secure bail Ior l iI
husband as she expc-led.
Ilowever, she sad. l, police
waihdrew the charges but ldid

TRANSIT npfif.inn rpfi 1 S 1


CARACAS, VENEZUELA
The United States insists
that a global sea treaty must
guarantee unobstructed transit
through and over international
traits and also provide for
coastal state control in the high
seas over such migratory fish
like the salmon.
In reply to a questionnaire
regarding the third United
Nations Law of the Sea
Conference, John Norton
Moore, deputy chief of the
U.S. delegation listed both
issues among five areas of vital
importance for his country.
The United States and
Canada have complained
recently that stocks of salmon
which spawn in their rivers
and streams and migrate to the
sea have been adversely
affected by Japanese fishing.
Japan, one of the leading
fishing countries of the world,
maintains large-scale
distant-water fishing fleets
some of which catch salmon
off the coasts of the United
States, Canada and the Soviet
Union.
Therefore, members of both
U.S. and Canadian delegations
want to see concrete provisions
in a sea treaty giving coastal
states full control over fishing
for such migratory species both
in nearby territorial waters as
well as in economic /ones and
on the high seas.
The U.S. delegation
considers that there is
"excellent potential" to
achieve a universally accepted
treaty next year governing the
use and protection of the
oceans.
The sea conference, which
got underway June 20, enters
its final week Monday with
narrower differences among
the 148 participating nations
and much optimism for hard
negotiations next year. (AP)

that regard were the same. Mr.
Bethell went on to refer to the
1`fi8 case involving the death
sentence meted out to Rupert
I /ra Nairn for murder.
Mr. Bethell said after the
then Governor acceded to the
advice of the Prerogative
Committee and refused to
change Nairn's sentence, the
convict sent a clemency
petition to the Governor for
forwarding to the Queen, and
petitioned the Governor
himself to issue a stay of
execution until the Queen
mad Ie a decision oil tilhe
clemency petition.
Up to that point the cases of
Nairn and Ilumes/Burnows
were virtually idential.
But in a major divergence
from the parallel, the Governor
in 1968 forwarded the
clemency petition to the
Queen lor consideration, even
though hie, too, refused to stay
the execution

FDITOR, The Tribune.
Please allow me some
valuable space in 0our1
newspaper to express mi\
opinion about something o\er
which I ami greatly. concerned.
For many \weeks one living
in South Beach I'state would
hase thought that a "tank
battle" \as in progress just east
of the Istate with the sound of
battle getting closer and closer
a,; the weeks go by.
Well, actually, as the notice
boards in the vicinity show.
there is a blasting operation in
progress and one wonders
whether or not these are
primarily intended for the
passing motorists or for the
residents of South Beach
State.
As a resident of this Estate, I
amn particularly concerned
about the effects this operation
is having on buildings and
young babies in the immediate
area.
Every blast is accompanied
by the violent shaking of
houses and ceiling fixtures: and


stIuctural T.Ira kin; is ai ieadI
appearing in a numther ol
houses I til' sel lt' \ I 01 hills
blasting is contain edl. the result
would be untold daiimage to
houses ini tits I state.
Like in\sell. other residents
of this usually\ quiet I state are
gravel\ conci ned about this
operation on their door-sleps.
about which h there was no prior
notice, otihe' tian the signs
pasted on the side of the road.
I don't know which
(Government Department is
responsible f',r giving
permission for this operation
to proceed, but it would
appear that the effects of this
blasting was not properly
assessed or anticipated.
I strongly believe that the
human element must always he
given top priority when a
project of this nature is being
considered for official
approval.
1, therefore, trust that these


observations will serve as an
e\ e-opcner to the proper
autihoties lof the unpleasant
reflects this blasting is having in
the South Beach I'state.
I call upon the many
residents oel this I state, who
are concerned about the
damaging effects this operation
could have, to bring pressure to
bear on the proper authorities
and the contractor responsible
for the blasting, to stop this-
work until the effects on
structures and persons in this
I st at e is satisfactorily
investigated.

NICOSIA United Nations
Se cretary-General Kurt
Waldheim brought together the
leaders of the Greek and
Turkish communities on
Cyprus today for their first
talks since the guns of Cyprus
were silenced.
After the 20-minute
meeting, Waldheim announced
that only "humanitarian
problems" were discussed.
Waidheim was expected in
Turkey later today in his
continuing effort to get serious
peace negotiations underway.
Turkey will accept no less
than 28 per cent of Cyprus for
an autonomous Turkish
Cypriot zone, a top Turkish
aide said Sanday, as Waldheim
flew to the island.
In Nicosia, the Cyprus
government appealed to several
organizations to help save
ancient monuments, museums,
archeological sites, movable
antiquities and other cultural
properties in Turkish-occupied
Cyprus. It said there was a risk
of their being "looted and
destroyed."
T ,irkey's 40,000-man

per cent of the island, two key
ports and two-thirds of the
island's industrial and
agricultural resources.
Haluk Ulman, who holds no
official position, but is
considered the closest foreign
policy adviser to Turkish
Premier Bulent Ecevit, told a
newsman in Ankara that
Turkey will insist on a
permanent zone. to guarantee
the economic security of the
120,000 Turkish Cypriots and
that it "must not be smaller
than 28 per cent ... the rest can
be debated."
Meanwhile, the Turkish
news magazine Echo qtuted
Gen. Semih Sancar chief of the
Turkish general staff, as saying
he awaited "with great
confidence" the return of
Greek troops to the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization.
But he said if they stay out,
"Turkey can fill the gap."

Love jail gets the


sexes together


FRAMINGHAM. Mas-
sachiusetts "Sehxual
intercourse is prohibited, but
that's not to say it's not
engaged in. We'd be pretty
naive if we said that. But it's
discreet," says Peter Bishop.
He is the acting
superintendent of the first
prison for both men and
women in the U.S.
"When the prison became
mixed (in March 1973). some
people saw the institution
turning into a 24-hour orgy.
But they were lay metn's
fantasies." Bishop .s-id.
He added that the mingling
of the sexes has brought some
problems to the prison. "But
they are much more healthy
kinds of problems, problem,- of
interrelationships, between men
.and woinen."
The Massachusetts
correctional institution at
Framingham resembles a
college campus. Four brick
dormitory buildings, two for
men and two for women are
grouped around a quadrangle.

Inmates, called residents,
have private rooms, which they
are free to decorate. A chain
link fence is the only barrier to
freedom, and prison guards,
mostly unarmed and wearing
civilian clothes, mingle with
the 60 mien and 60 women
inmates.


Most of the male inmates
are only a few months away
from parole and go each day to
work or education release
programmes. Women are
incarcerated at Frainighainl
for all types of violent crimes.
especially drug related
offenses.
Murdoch Macdonald. A
48 year old who has served
22 years of a life sentence for a
double murder, said his
transfer to Framingham fromii
the maxium security state
prison at Walpole "was about
the best thing that ever
happened to me. It is such a
learning experience, relating to
women again. It's a
decompression chamber."
Diane Dixon, 23, sewing a
life term for murder, said the
mixed situation was "inore
open and the men and women
get along fairl. well."
"'We have a tight
relationship," said Eli Lizolte,
23, who said she was sent to
F r a l i n g h a m for a
drug related crime. She said
the men "are not here to play

How history is made

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the eighth article in a series I am writing qn 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 31. A few days ago I wrote seven
articles about the Duke of Windsor and threw in a few bits about
George Bernard Shaw, Sir Alan Burns, Sir Harry Oakes, Sir Nigel
Fisher and other men who have helped to make history during
this period.
The Windsor articles arose out of a book written by Ralph G.
Martin about the Duchess of Windsor, titled "The Woman He
Loved".
I told you in one of these articles how I happened to know
about this book and why I bought it. The only reason for buying
it was that it was brought to my attention by the manager of a
shop in Coral Gables who said that I had received honourable
mention in several places.
I was curious to know what was written about me and so I
bought a copy. I read the sections in which I appeared and laid
the book aside. I considered the Duke's life such a tragedy that I
have studiously avoided reading anything about him since his
abdication. I just didn't want to know all the details of the life of
a man who never seemed able to make a right decision, especially
after he allowed himself to become a slave to the wishes of "the
woman I love".
I understand love. This is an emotion that has played an
important part in my life. But I have always considered a man's
duty of first importance, transcending every other consideration.
This was especially so in the case of a king-emperor during a
critical period in his country's history.
If love alone is the standard by which human responsibility in
organized society is to be measured then no man should be
required to leave a family he loves to bear firms in defence of his
country.
And so I have always considered the Duke's behaviour the
conduct of a weakling. I don't want to be harsh in my decisions
of anyone but I despise weakness ... and selfishness ... especially
in anyone occupying a place of importance and responsibility in
life.
The Duke was weak, vain, extravagant and self-indulgent. Had
he gone out in life and made a career for himself ... any kind of
career, which would have been easy for him to do ... he would
have won the respect and admiration of the world.
At the time of the abdication I said in this column that he
should have gone to a ranch he owned in Canada and become a
gentleman farmer. Better still if he had made a success of the
undertaking. The British people might have even clamoured for
his return to them with Wallis as his queen.
Instead, he spent the rest of his life looking to a country he
had failed for the hand "f "the woman I love" to give him a job
to fit his "talents" ... and fretting over the fact that the British
government refused to elevate his twice-divorced wife to the
dignity of royalty by conferring on her the title of "Her Royal
Highness".
The British government must have realized from his complete
lack of judgment in Europe when he went to see Hitler and in his
administration of the Bahamas that this man, trained to be king
where he was surrounded by seasoned advisers, was like a "babe
in the woods" when set adrift in the world on his own. His
deep-rooted prejudices, his wilful nature, and complete lack of
discretion would have made him a liability in any major
diplomatic position.
: The Duchess. on the other hand, was cold, calculating and
selfish. I would go so far as to say that she was heartless in
*. pursuing her ambitions and satisfying her desires.
She had everything to gain and nothing to lose by finally
sticking with the man who loved her with such a passion that he
gave up the greatest human heritage in existence at the time in
order to possess her. It was clear to any observer that, while he
truly loved her, she merely accepted him as the best thing that
had come her way in her long string of romances.
I feel perfectly justified in making these observations because I
have shown my willingness to work, fight and even die, if
necessary, for king and country. 1 believe that God preserved the
British monarchy by giving the nation the late King George VI
and the present Queen Elizabeth II to whom I am completely
devoted.
********
My experiences with the Duke would have embittered many
people against the Royal Family. They would have judged them
all on the same level.


It was just this kind of thing that speeded up the dissolution of
the British Empire. The behaviour of small reactionary groups in
each of Britain's possessions in their hard-line resistance even to
moderate change in the social structure ... combined with what
appeared to be indifference at Westminster ... served to turn
many ordinarily loyal subjects against Britain and opened the way
for revolutionary elements to move into the footlights.
In both cases it had the opposite effect on me. I realized that
both the Royal Family and Britain were sound at the core and
were not to be blamed for the total blindness of individuals and
small groups who could be removed from the seat of power
without lessening our loyalty and affection for the crown or
causing us to appreciate any less the importance of our
association with Britain.
I particularly admired the strength Qpeen Mother Mary showed
in this national crisis that struck at the roots of the monarchy.
And of her second son who, although not trained for the job and
who also feared it because of an impediment in his speech,
stepped courageously into the breach and performed
magnificently during a period when the British people were
fighting for their survival and the preservation of freedom in the
human family.
The only thing that concerned the Duke during this critical
period was the fact that dear Wallis had been denied the right to
assume titles reserved for members of the Royal Family. He
fretted over this trifle like a spoiled child!
By contrast Lord Mountbatten of Burma did as much as
anyone ... and more than most ... to add glorious laurels to the
royal escutcheon.
Before the Duke met Mrs. Simpson he had had many exciting


love affairs, some more serious than others. She had also had her
fling in the U.S. and China.
In one case, reported by Martin in his book, the Duke
proposed to an English woman who had a husband. She had
accommodated him in many ways. But this was the limit. She
told him NO. And when he protested she simply said it was
impossible because he had a destiny to fulfil. At this point she
broke off her relationship with him.
It was extraordinary how this young man, as Prince of Wales,
got involved with other men's wives. More extraordinary still is
the fact that their husbands tolerated it because they wanted to
be in the "in" set.
His was the story of his grandfather Edward VII all over again.
Edward, as Prince of Wales and King, had a weakness for other
men's beds.
I suppose I must be a puritan because I react badly to these
situations. King or Prince of Wales, I think I would have punched
him in the nose.
After the Duke left the Bahamas the Daily Express feature
department cabled to offer The Tribune a feature story on the
Duke of Windsor. They took it for granted that we would snap it
up. They were surprised when I cabled declining the offer. This
made news in the American and British press.
I had no intention of reading Martin's book all through. But I
had just completed a remarkable book on the life of a game
warden in the annual reserves in Kenya and I turned to a heavy
work on Russia which I must read, even though it is as dry as
dust.
In my work there are things I must read whether I enjoy them
or not because it is my job in life to be informed on what's going.
'n in the world; both now and in the past. This kind of
knowledge throws light on the possible future.
It may take me months but I will do the Russian book in small
instalments.
I turned to the Windsor book because I felt that, although it
would almost certainly annoy me, it might provide a form of
diversion.
I have now finished the book. I am glad I read it because; apart
from picking up some interesting historical facts about this
period, it is extremely well written. Judging from the numerous
source references to which Martin gives credit for his
information, he must have done an enormous amount of research.
***********e
Very often you are impressed by a book because it sounds
authentic. This may be so because you are not familiar with the
area in which the story is based.
I can cite a case. Some years ago Thornton Wilder wrote
"Winds Over The Carolinas". The story was about Loyalists who
left their homes in the Carolinas during the American War for
Independence and settled in the Bahamas. The principal figure in
the story was located in the Bahamas. It was a fascinating book.
It was so well done that it sounded like gospel truth ... but, in
fact, it was mostly fiction.
Wilder then wrote a second book "An Affair of Honour". This
story was also based in the Bahamas. It was about a period
through which many of us had lived.
I want to make it clear that 1 am not complaining
personally about this second Wilder's book because I am one of
the characters in it ... and he treats me handsomely.
But most of his references were entirely wrong. It is well
written and anyone not familiar with the period of which he
wrote would be impressed.
I mention this fact to point out that, with one minor
exception, Martin's section on the Bahamas is surprisingly
accurate. There are 43 chapters in this book, five of which are
devoted to the Windsors life in the Bahamas.
As far as I can see, the only mistake he made was to say that
the Government House in which the Windsors lived in Nassau was
built in 1801, adding that it had been repaired after a hurricane.
The building he had in mind was completely destroyed in the
destructive 1929 hurricane when termite-eaten casement windows
were blown out and the governor and his wife, Sir Charles and
Lady Dundas, were almost killed. The building now on this site
was erected around 1930 by Capt. John Holmes, a Board of
Works engineer, who died in England a few years ago. I believe his
wife Molly is still alive in a home in England.
It is to Martin's credit that he could cover the Windsor stay in
the Bahamas with just this one minor mistake. And so I conclude
that the other chapters in the book are equally accurate.
I can tell you from my experience of writing that it is not easy
to get all the details in a story absolutely correct, especially when
the information is picked up second hand.
In his section on the Bahamas Martin studiously avoided calling
names. He wrote about situations in a purely impersonal way.
The only two people mentioned by name are Sir Harold
Christie and myself. I appear in several places. I suppose I merited
this attention because I was the only person who ever faced the
Duke and objected to things he and the Duchess did.
The Sir Harry Oakes murder is featured in the story and, of
course, Sir Harold Christie had to come into this. In this
connection Martin also mentioned that Sir Harold had made a
great deal of money in the bootlegging adventure, a fact that he
later regretted. In later life he wished that he had never been
connected with rum-running to the U.S.
Actually I am writing this story because of a reference in
Martin's book to the Oakes murder and in defence of the honour
of our own Royal Bahamas Police Force.
You will remember that the Duke made several fatal blunders
in this case. He had no business interfering but he did. His biggest
blunder was when he took the case out of the hands of the local
force and called in two hick police officers from Miami who had
been assigned to take care of him during a visit to Florida and
who had impressed him because of their fawning attention.
Don't make any mistake about it ... the Duke wanted to be
king and he fell for anyone who treated him like a king ...
especially anyone who how.-d d scraped to the Duchess.


The question still remains unanswered why ... if he felt the
need to call in outside help ... he didn't call in Scotland Yard or
the F.B.I.
In his book Martin repeats the excuse the Duke gave for calling
in the Miami policemen.
Sir Harry was such an important man that he felt experts
should conduct the investigation. The Duke said later that he
called in these men because he felt that the local police were
inadequate to handle the case, especially the fingerprint section.
As it turned out, it was the dishonest handling of the
fingerprint evidence by one of these Miami men that completely
destroyed the Crown's case when Count Alfred deMarigny was
brought to trial for the murder of his father-in-law. The Crown
had an airtight case on circumstantial evidence against deMarigny
but when the Hon. Godfrey Higgs, able defence lawyer for
deMarigny. with Mr. Ernest Callender as his junior, proved
conclusively that the fingerprint produced by the Miami expert as
that of deMarginy had been dishonestly obtained, the whole case
fell arpart ... and deMarigny. who i noew a big social figure in
Tampa. was acquitted by the jury.
The Attorney General at that time was Eric Hallinan, a very
fine man. The Commissioner of Police was Colonel
Erskine-Lindop, also a fine man. Not many Roman Catholics
came to the Bahamas as senior officials but it happened that both
Hallinan and Lindop were Catholics. Lindop was a daily
commhunictmi and Hallinam, for whom I had the highest
admiration, was the soul of honour. But they disagreed on this
case.

For the past year tourist
arrivals at the population
centres at Nassau and
Freeport have been either
making very small gains or
showing declines.
Continuing problems in'
Nassau and Freeport have, for
example, pushed the all
Bahamas arrivals count for
the first seven months of this
year down 7.8 percent below
the total for the same period
in 1973

Citibank scholarship winner off to Miami


TWENTY-ONE-YEAR-OLD
Susan Pinder (pictured) is
presently going through
enrollment and orientation
exercises at the University of
Miami.
She has become the first
Bahamian ever to benefit from
a Citibank Scholarship for full
university training, a plan
inaugurated over one year ago
as an independence gesture
toward the people of the
Bahamas.
Bahamian high school
graduates were requested to
submit applications for a
four-year scholarship tenable
generally at the University of
Miami, but also indicating
whether their choice of an
institution might be otherwise.
A committee of prominent
Bahamians and bank personnel
then scanned the various
applications and carefully read
the special essay the applicant
was also required to submit.
High on the list of those
priorities which would incline
the committee toward a
particular applicant were:
Academic proficiency.
e Demonstrable need.
Acceptance by the
University.

Director-designate tells Rotarians about


THE WORKMEN'S Compensation Act will be repealed on
October 7 when the National Insurance Act comes into force in
the Bahamas.
This was told to members of the East Nassau Rotary Club by
the national insurance scheme's director-designate Byron Pinder
at their luncheon meeting at the Flagler Inn on Friday.
The insurance scheme is to be administered by a tripartite
Board consisting of representatives of Government, employers
and insured persons. Board chairman is Earl V. Thompson, M.P.
and there are 10 other members.
The Board is to be under the direction of the Minister and the
Director will be the principal officer of the Board.
The following is the full text of Mr. Pinder's address to the
Rotarians:

representatives of employers'
and workers' organizations and
other interested individuals. I
had the pleasure and privilege
of working with him during his
mission.
In March 1971 his report
was received by our
Government and it was on the
basis of Mr. Higuchi's report
and recommendations that our
national insurance scheme has
been based, but with special
care to see that it was tailored
to suit the needs in our
country.
In October 1971 the
I. L.O. furnished our
government with an expert
adviser, Mr. F. B. Matthews,
who set about immediately to
draft the Act and the
Regulations after the
completion of which, and until
his mission ended in December,
1973, he concentrated on
administration.
A successor. Mr. James
Grieve, is with us carrying on
where Mr. Matthews left off.
Government established a
tripartite Joint Advisory
Committee, consisting of
representatives of Government,
employers and trade unions.
The major task of this
Committee was to study the
I.L.O. Report and to
recommend the most
acceptable ;orm of a scheme
having regard to the desires and
resources of this
Commonwealth.
In mid 1972 an expert
Actuary arrived from the
I.L.O. and the rates of
contributions and benefits
were recommended as a result
of his study of geographic.
demographic and economic
data available to him. At the
same time a financial advisor
came from the I.L.O. and he
was responsible for drafting the
financial regulations. From all


of this you will readily
appreciate the immeasurable
kindness of the I.L.O. in
helping to put this scheme
together.
OBJECTIVES
Now what does our national
insurance scheme involve? The
basic objectives were to
provide income security during
the contingencies of:-
(a) temporary sickness:
(b) pei;manent invalidity:
(c) maternity of women
workers:
(d) retirement from work on
account of age:
(e) loss of support through
the death of a
breadwinner:
(f) loss of work. wholly or
partially, as a result of
employment injury or loss
of support owing to the
death of a breadwinner:
and
(g) the need for medical care
for a person suffering
from employment injury.
Please note that the I.L.O.'s
Report did not recommend the
following provisions and they
are not included in our
scheme:
(1) general family allowances
(2) unemployment benefits;
or
(3) insurance for the cost of
medical care for the
population as a whole.
Contributions to the scheme
and the benefits paid out will
be related to wages (or
earnings). There will be six
wage (or earnings) groups for
each of which there will be an
insurable wage or insurable
earnings. This insurable wage in
each group will be used for the
calculation of contributions or
benefits of the insured persons
in that group. The tables of
rates of contributions by
employers and insured persons
have been published in the
press, they have not been
altered since.
The benefits and
qualifications for receiving
them are as follows:

GENERAL BENEFITS:
(1) INVALIDITY BENEFIT:
This benefit will be payable
to insured persons under 65
years of age after being
certified by a medical
authority that he is unable
to undertake further
employment.
The insured person must
have paid at least 150
contributions and credits
(including special age
credits) in order to qualify
for invalidity benefit of 30q
of the insurable wage
(earnings) of the wage group
in which he has paid and has
credited (other than age
credits) the greater or
greatest number of
contributions.
For each additional
contributions and credits
above 750 the rate of this
benefit will be increased by
1% of the insurable wage
(earnings). The maximum
will be 60% of the insurable
wage (earnings).
Reduced benefits will be
paid to those whose paid
contributions amount to not
less than 150 and whose
total contributions are less
than 750.
(2) RETIREMENT BENEFIT:
A person must have attained
the age of 65 years before
they will become entitled to
a retirement pension subject,
of course, to certain qualifying
conditions which
incidentally will be the same
as those already given for
invalidity benefit. At least
150 contributions paid and
so on.
(3) SURVIVOR'S BENEFIT:
A surviving dependent
(widow or widower) or the
orphan children of a
deceased insured person will
be entitled to this benefit
provided the insured person
at the time of his death -
(1) was in receipt of
retirement benefit or
invalidity benefit.
(2) would have been
entitled to invalidity
benefit had he been
deemed to be an
invalid at the time of
his death; or
(3) was 65 years of age or
over and would have
been entitled to
retirement benefit had
he made a claim for it.
The rate of survivor's benefit
will depend on the rate of
retirement or invalidity
benefit that the deceased
was receiving at the time of
his death or to which he
would have been entitled
but for his death. The
rate will depend also on the
relationship of the surviving
dependents to the deceased
and the number of them.
(4) SICKNESS BENEFIT:
This benefit will be paid to
insured persons who have
been medically certified as
incapable of work, otherwise
than as a result of
employment injury, and
who were actually in
employment immediately
prior to the day they


became ill. There will be
certain contribution
qualifications necessary
before one can receive this
benefit. First of all, of
course, he must be an
insured person with not less
than 50 contributions having
been actually paid, to his
credit. He must have paid
and credited in the
immediately previous
contribution year a total of
at least 40 contributions. In
the first year of operation of
the scheme, however, these
conditions will be reduced
to 26 contributions paid.
Sickness benefit can be paid
for a period of 26 weeks
after which and according to
medical certification he will
graduate to invalidity
benefit.
(5) MATERNITY BENEFIT:
Maternity benefit will be paid
to be insured woman for a
period of 13 weeks (6-1-6).
Qualifying conditions for
receipt of benefit will be not
less than 50 contributions
paid and have paid and
credited not less than 40
contributions in the previous
contribution year or not less
than 30 contributions in the
40 weeks before the week in
which benefit is due to
commence.
This benefit will be paid in the
wage (earnings) group in
which she has paid and been
credited with the greater or
greatest number of
contributions in the
immediately preceding
contribution year.
FUNERAL BENEFIT:
An amount of $200 will be
payable on the death of a
person who is or has
been an insured person and
who had paid not less than
50 contributions at the time
of his death.
Similarly a funeral benefit
of S200 will be payable on
the death of the spouse of
such a person.
INDUSTRIAL BENEFIT:
A special consideration in
this scheme is the provision
for benefits for employment
injury. The benefits will take
the place of benefits now
provided under the
Workmen's Compensation
Act which will be repealed
on the declared day when
these benefits become
payable, except that the
rights of those who may still
have claims and those who
are receiving benefit will be
respected by the W.C.A.
after it has been repealed.
Payment of benefits under
the Scheme will begin in
approximately 3 months
after the first appointed day.
INJURY BENEFIT:
An employed person will be
entitled to injury benefit in
respect of being
incapacitated temporarily; it
is very similar to sickness
benefit aforementioned


OLD AGE NON-CONTRIBUTORY
PENSION
As of the first appointed
day, October 7th, all persons
receiving an old age
non-contributory pension will
come under the wing of the
Scheme and their pensions will
increase form $13 to $26 per
month. The same will apply to
those who were in receipt of
pecuniary assistance from the


except that there are no
qualifying condiiosls apart
from injury on the job or as
a result of such
employment.
DISABLEMENT BENEFIT:
This benefit will be paid to a
person (after assessment by
a medical referee or a
medical appeal board) who
is a victim of an industrial
accident and suffers loss of
faculty, i.e. the loss of the
use of a member or organ of
his body. The rate of
payment will be calculated
in relation to the degree of
disablement and will be a
lump sum in case of
assessment at less than 25%
and periodical payments for
25% or more.
This benefit will be paid
whether or not the injured
person is able to Work.
DEATH BENEFIT:
Surviving dependents of a
person fatally injured as a
result of employed injury
will be the recipients of this
benefit. Actually, it is
similar in nature to a
survivor's benefit except
that the rate will be related
to the rate of injury benefit.
In case death is due to
employment injury a funeral
benefit of $200 will be
payable.
MEDICAL CARE FOR EM-
PLOYMENT INJURY:
Employed persons who
require medical care as a
result of employment injury
will be provided with such
care free of charge under
special Medical Care
Regulations which have yet
to be considered.
ASSISTANCE:
A special feature of our
Scheme, and a new element in
schemes of this nature, is that
of "Assistance". The scheme
provides for this element to be
granted to insured persons who
do not qualify for general
benefits. Persons applying fot
assistance will be subject to a
test of resources.
The forms of assistance
are: -
(I) invalidity assistance
(2) survivor's assistance
(3) sickness assistance.

KEP AEAST OF t



rNaocaacs


Regulations, it near culminated
four years of planning and hard
work in producing and
introducing a scheme of
national insurance.
What now remains to
complete and put the scheme
into operation is for these
regulations to receive
affirmative resolution of both
branches of the Legislature. as
required under The National
Insurance Act, and for the
Minister to appoint by notice
in the Gazette the coming into
operation of the Act on such
day or days as he deems fits, and
different days may be so
appointed in respect of
different classes of insured
persons. As you are all aware
the 7th October, 1974. has
bcen set as D-day. Employed
persons will come intu the
scheme as of that day and
self-employed some eighteen
months later.
National Insurance is not
new to this planet of ours:
known as social security in
many countries, it gained
substance back in the last
century in Europe and today it
is practically universal.
In keeping pace with the
times and realising the needs of
the times our Government in
June 1970 requested the
International Labour
Organisation (I.L.O.) in
Geneva, Switzerland, to
provide, under the United
Nations Development
Programme, the services of an
expert in social security to
make a survey on the
possibility of introducing a
comprehensive social security
scheme. As a result Mr. T.
tliguchi of the Social Security
Branch (Conditions of Work
and Life Department of the
I.L.O.) came to the Bahamas in
October of 1970 and remained
here until December, a period
of two months.
While in Nassau, and
Freeport, this expert conferred
extensively with Cabinet
Ministers, officials of
government departments,

Department of Social Services
of' the Ministry of Labour and
National Insurance either as
invalids permanently incapable
of work or as a survivor of
deceased persons.
The welfare of aged persons
will always remain uppermost
in mind when schemes of social
improvement are considered.
The scheme of course will be
administered by a tripartite
Board consisting of
representatives of Government,
employers and insured persons:
Mr. Earl V. Thompson, M.P.
for the Fort Charlotte
constituency is its Chairman
and there are ten other
-members. The Board shall be a
body corporate appointed by
and under the direction of the
Minister. The Director will be
the principal officer of the
Board:
We are located in the
McAlpine Building on
Farrington Road and our P. 0.
Box is N-7508.
On a scheme of this
enormity and complexity I
could stand here and talk to
you for days on end, but I
trust that I have during the
period of time allotted to me,
given you an idea of the
framework of the Scheme.
I would at this time plead
for the cooperation of all
employers who have not
registered as employers and
who have not registered their
employees to please do so at
the earliest opportunity and
thus avoid a crushing rush at
the last minute. The staff of
National Insurance are eager
and willing to help you in any
and every way we can.
Thank you. 4

From Page 3
Normally, Colonel Erskine-Lindop would have been called as a
principal Crown witness in the case but shortly before it came to
trial he was appointed Deputy Commissioner of Police in
Trinidad and he left the island hurriedly. This was clearly another
cam of interference at the top.
I was very friendly with both Colonel Lindop and Mr. Hallinan.
In fact, Colonel Lindop is godfather for my son Pierre, the baby
of the family, and although Pierre has never seen him since he
held him as an infant at the baptismal font, the Colonel never
falls to send him a Christmas card.
In 1951 I overnighted at Port of Spain, Trinidad on my way to
a press conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. The Lindops had me
in for dinner and I talked about the case with the Colonel.
"If the Duke had only given us a couple more days on the case
I think we would have cracked it," he said. "In examining a
witness he let one word slip and I felt sure I was on the right trail
but the case was taken out of my hands and 1 was sent to
Trinidad."
I have seen him several times since then in England. On more
than one occasion he and his wife have come up to London from
Wimbledon to have lunch with my wife and me. But no further
reference has been made to the case..
A few years later my wife and I were making a tour of the
Caribbean. Britain's Caribbean Colonies had been linked in a
Federation with headquarters in Trinidad. I felt that the
Federation would not succeed and so I made this tour to collect
information in the various islands. At the end of the tour I was
certain the Federation would collapse ... and I said so in this
column. It did collapse.
Eric Hallinan had been appointed Chief Justice of the
Federation and had been knighted. We met Sir Eric in Barbados
where he had gone to hear an appeal. We had dinner together and
the Oakes case came up.
Raymond Schindler, a well-known American detective who
had cracked the Lindbergh kidnapping case and sent the German
kidnapper to the electric chair, wrote to the government after the
deMarigny acquittal saying that he believed that he had evidence
that might throw new light on the murder. He offered to come to
Nassau to conduct an investigation but the government turned
down the offer.
I asked Sir Eric why the government had not taken up
Schindler's offer. He was so convinced that the Crown had
presented a sound case at the deMarigny trial that there was
nothing more to investigate.
Sir Eric wrote a brilliant piece on British legal practice and
British justice for Hout's book King's X. It is really the only
decent thing in this blatantly dishonest book on the Oakes case.
Sir Eric has retired and is now living in Spain.
The Oakes case is now a closed book. This is unfortunate
because suspicion fell on several people who have had to live for
years in an atmosphere of unfair rumours, but somehow I feel
that Colonel Erskine-Lindop is the only person ... apart from
the murderer himself ... who may have a clear idea of the criminal
in this case.
He will carry the clue he believed he had in this case to the
grave with him.

The Lindop name is still identified with the Bahamas. The
Colonel's son, also Erskine Lindop, is now Permanent Secretary
to tha.Ministry of Works. He grew up in Nassau during the years
his father was Commissioner of Police. He served with a
Commission which embraced all the Caribbean islands, both
British and otherwise, with headquarters in Trinidad before
ac epting an appointment in the Bahamas and so he has brought
invaluable experience on Caribbean affairs to his job with the
government.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
For heathen heart that puts her trust
In necking tube and iron shard,
Are valiant dust that builds on dust,
And, guarding, calls not Thee to guard.
For frantic boast and foolish word -
Thy mercy on Thy People, Lord! KIPLING


$A CATRAN IN FRONT OFMEP!


DEAR ABBY: Indeed the letter from the girls in the coed
dorm who protested the presence of men in their bathing
and' toilet facilities was no put on.
I am a psychotherapist who has counseled college
students since 1942, and the bizarre situation they describe
is common.
Coed living is creating severe emotional problems for
college men and women. Impotence in college men is now a
common symptom-the result of a culture that pushes
sexual performance. Some girls panic because of sexual
pressure; others become overly aggressive.

It is totally unfair to pay for a double ro

roommate's sexual activities is to find some
sleep.

IN LOVING ME RY of our

CARLTON BENEBY.
The shock was sudden the
blow severe
To part with one we loved so
dear,
Time takes away the edge of
grief
But memory turns back every
leaf.
Whatever else we fail to do
We will never fail to think of
you.
Sadly missed by: Parents,
grandparents, one sister, two
brothers and a host of relatives
and friends, both here and

THE TRIBUNE ... Monday, August 26, 1974


Twenty-three-year-old James Peterson plays a defensive stroke during his unbeaten 67 yesterday. Pict



Peterson 67 paves



way for Bahamas


THIE BAHAMAS Cricket
Association's National XI.
skippered by Police Royals'
Edmund Lewis, played superb
all around cricket in beating
the American League all-stars
by 48 runs in a too-day match
that ended yesterday at Ilaynes
Oval.
The A C(' seek revenge
tomorrow when they meet a
c combined Pr i son
Officers, Police Royals team.
Their third and final match will
be played Thursday against
another Bahamian XI.
Led by a dashing 67 not out
from youngg James Peterson,
the Bahamas' squad, having
dropped the first innings by 12
runs scored a challenging 136
for four declared in the second.
This gave the A.C.L. 125 to
make for victory with 90
minutes left.
For a while, it seemed as if
the match was headed for a
draw. But then. Lewis brought
on his spinners and that spelt
the end for the visitors. The
Bahamas won with some 15
minutes to spare.
Having won the toss, the
host team elected to bat during
the first day's play Saturday
and put up 143 runs with
veteran all-rounder Francis
Scott leading the way with 37.
Lewis scored ..23 and Peter
Bethel 22.
For a spell, it seemed that
the Bahamas was on the verge
of collapse being unable to
withstand the bowling of Murli
Montiani, Selwyn, Caesar and
Mclford Roach.
However, a fine 65-run
partnership between Bethel
and Scott both of St.
Bernard Club brought the
Bahamas from 28 for five to a
respectable score.
Starting off on the right
foot. the A CL. led by Keith
Richards' 58 and Caesar's 31
not out put up a strong 79 for
three. Lewis and Scott then
found their lengths and mowed
down the following five
wickets for a mere eight runs.
Lewis ended with three


wickets for 27 runs in 12 overs.
Scott bagged five for 32 in
11.2.
"I saw them in practice and
they had a very good bowling
side. That's why I elected to
bat hoping that our sun would
wear down their bowlers a
bit." Lewis poTnted out. "Their
first performance wasn't
impressive. That's why I took
the gamble." He was referring
to his second innings
declaration.
lie added that the Bahamas'
fielding during the first innings
wasn't up to par "and from
then I realized that their
(A.C.L.) batting was poor."
Prison Officers' Ralph
Kellman and Southerners'
Harry Dean opened for the
Bahamas and put up 31 runs
before the latter drove a shot
to Melford Roach at mid on
and, in attempting a run was
put out by wicketkeeper
Richards.
Peterson then joined
Kelli I n and batted
confidently throughout.
Peterson was named the most
consistent player during the
Co mmonwealth Wanderers'
recent tour of Canada and New
York.
Kellman left when the score
reached 41, Jerruth Thompson
carried it to 66 when Scott
joined Peterson in a
partnership that ended with
Scott being stumped from a
Noel Smith delivery. Lewis
declared at that.
Pacers Tyrone Thompson
and Bethel opened for the
Bahamas and in the first half
hour had the A.C.L. down 23
for four.
Scott and Horace Kingston
with baffling spins later took
over and soon, their opponents
were down seven for 41 with a
half hour to go.
Kellman was the final
bowler used and he brought
victory in sight. iHe had the
eighth and ninth batsmen for
eight runs, and took a diving
catch at slips for the final put
out.


Selwyn Caesar captures another victim. Ralph Kellman is
bowled during Saturday's first day's play.


A.C.L. Skipper Fric
Padmore who going into the
second innings was confident of
victory noted after the match
that the Bahamas' side got an
early break through "and we
couldn't catch ourselves. I
think they deserve to win," he
said.

Players selected -to the
Prison Officers/Police Royals
squad: A. Grazette (capt). 1'.
Lewis (v. Cape.) IH. Stuart, J.
Thompson, 1. Taylor, C.

Imving into a two-way tic for

Baseball Association's Junior

The Stars who were tired
after beating St. Michaels
Dodgers 5-4 in a closely
contested game blamed the
officials for the bad planning
of t he games on Saturday.
"'1 think it was unfair", said
pitcher George Edgecombe
who pitched two complete

record to 14 and 5 to force a

The Stars jumped on Davis
in their half of the first inning.
Second sacker Peter Isaacs
started off the inning with a

screaming single down the left
field line.
First baseman Bill Fawkes
took first base on a throwing
error and moved to second
sending Isaacs all the way to
third. Catcher Dexter Rolle
scorched a single into right
field to plate Isaacs for their
first run. Rolle collected an rbi
on the hit.
During this Bill Fawkes
scored on the iclav throw
home to junp ahead by two
runs, Rolle moved to third and
later scored on a pass ball.
Hleineken scored two runs
on two hits in the third, and
two runs on two hits in the
seventh. They were held
scoreless in the fourth, fifth
and sixth inning.
During the second, third,
fourth, fifth, and sixth inning
Becks scored eight runs on
eight hits. They did not score
during the first and seventh
inning.
In the first game Ileineken
knocked St. Michaels into third
place by beating them 5-4.
George Idgecombe took the


win while Brad Wood took the
loss. Three runs was all
Fdgecomnbe needed to work
with as he held the l)odgers
scoreless for three complete
innings.
St. Michaels who came a

compiling a record of seven

Manager/Sponsor George
Mackey after losing a tough
game to Hleineken Stars.
Third base Coach Anthony
Bostwick filed protest against
the Stars in the seventh inning.
Mr. Bostwick said that two of
Heineken Stars players
interfered with his base runners
during a rundown play. Mr.
Bostwick lost the protest.
The series will continue on
Saturday when the Heineken
Stars tangle with Becks Bees to
decide the 1974 pennant
winners. Both teams now carry
a record of 14 and 5.

Miss Richter posted a new

The East German girls have

Big Jim




too good



for Coins
BIG STRONG Jim Duncombe sank a 20-foot birdie putt on
the twelfth hole and missed one on the 14th by less than a foot
enroute to beating Coins Poitier by one hole in yesterday's
Bahamas Golf Association's match play championship played at


the South Ocean.
Playing confidently
throughout the 18 hole series,
Duncombe, known for his
powerful drives, twice held a
hole lead during their battle
over the front nine. He
dropped it on the par three
llth hole with a bogic to
Poitier's par.
Half way through the 12th,
rain fell. This disturbed neither
golfer. Jim kept in the fairway
and was on the green in two
strokes. Poitier who had to
come out of a sandtrap
watched helplessly as
Duncombe birdied to take the
lead.
Poitier seemed unable to
stay out of the sandtraps.and it
costed him another hole on the
15th which had Duncombe
moving ahead by two. He
however got it back on the 16
only to be dormied on the
18th.
Wally Wennick erased a two
hole front nine set back and
dormied Lou Parker on the 17
hole to win the first flight
division of the B.G.A. match
play championship. In the
second flight, Andy Aitken
won by default.
Playing unsteady over the
front nine, Wennick dropped
by two over the first three
holes. He picked up one on the
fourth but gave it back on the
ninth.
Going into the back nine, his
