POLIC(I, searching Little San Salvador cay a second time

Its worth is believed to be several thousands of dollars.
Officers with the Marine Police Division of the force

Sale should be set aside, says liquidator
By NICKI KELLY
rHE SALE of General Bahamian
Companies' parent, Security Capital
Corporation "may have been made
under fraudulent preferences or for
improper consideration and should be
set aside," the court appointed
liquidator for one of Mr. Norman P.
LeBlanc's numerous companies stated
in an affidavit submitted during last
week's liquidation proceedings.
Mrs. Shirley Oakes Butler petitioned
the court on February 25 to have
I'airhorn C('orporation td. liquidated
on grounds that it was insolvent,
unable to pay its debts and in breach
of a 1972 purchase agreement made
Mr. Robert N. Slatter, first
appointed provisional and then official
liquidator of Fairborn. said his
investigation of the records of the
company revealed that subsidiary
companies of Fairborn owned the
controlling block of voting shares of
Security Capital, the public Canadian
company which in turn controls
General Bahamian Companies.
According to Mr Slatter, Fairborn's
subsidiaries on or before February 1
sold their shares of Security Capital to
another subsidiary W H.O. Holdings
Ltd. which then sold the entire
holdings of Security Capital to a
Panamianian company called Moropan
(W H.O. is now the new name of
Butler's Bank, following sale of its
controlling company, Lewis Oakes
Ltd. to Fairborn).
Payment was a note from Moropan
"which does not appear to have any
other assets," Mr. Slatter said.
The Tribune reported on January
21 that Mr. LeBlanc, president of
Bahamas Commonwealth Bank and
also president of Fairborn, had agreed
to sell control of Security Capital,
which had been suspended from
trading on the Toronto Stock
Simultaneously it was disclosed that
Security Capital proposed selling
General Bahamian to a Bahamian
group comprised of liquor merchants
Percy V. Munnings, Senator Sidney
Carroll and George W. McKinney.
The sale of Security Capital was to
have been made to an American-
James V. Joyce who owns pipeline
construction companies in Canada and
But according to an affidavit by
Mrs. Shirley Oakes Butler, submitted
as the result of her application to have
Fairborn liquidated, Security Capital
was not sold to Mr. Joyce but to
Moropan instead on February 25.
In his March 5 affidavit Mr Slatter
also pointed out that a subsidiary of
WHO owned the shares of Charlotte
Street Properties Ltd., which in turn
owns valuable real estate in Charlotte
When he requested the shares and
other records of Charlotte Street
Properties from an officer of the
company he was informed that C('S1'
had been sold by WHO and was
therefore no longer an asset of the
company or its subsidiary.
The sale of CSPL by WHO was not
known to WHO's secretary and was
not recorded in WHO's minute books
or accounting records.
"I was then advised that the sale
had been by an "agreement" but a
copy was not available as the only
executed copy was in the personal file
of Mr. LeBlanc."
Mrs. Butler, in petitioning for
liquidation of Fairborn, claimed that
the company had sold a "substantial
part of its property"- that is its
holding shares in Security Capital
"in flagrant breach" of an agreement
made with her on August 17, 1972.
She had been advised by her
attorney, she said, that the transaction
might be one a liquidator should set

PFRTH, Australia Prime Minister Cough Whitlam was
pelted with debris, punched and kicked during a wild
election rally in Perth today.
He was shaken up., but not seriously hurt.
A half-full soft drink can hit him on the back of the head
and Whitlam, redfaced and visibly shaken, called back at
the crowd, "Cowards, cowards!"
Whitlam described the ralls as "vicious and ugly," the
worst in his career.
A crowd of about 7,000, most. farmers who had driven
hundreds of miles, booed, jeered and repeatedly hurled
missiles at Whitlam as he tried to address them.
Whitlam was in Perth to support the Labour party
candidates in the state election March 30. Hle spoke for
about 20 minutes hut could only be heard for short
periods. At one stage the microphone cord was cut.
State Labour Prime Minister John Tonkin was aslo
attacked when he arrived to speak at the rally. He aso was
shaken, but not badly hurt.
The farmers arrived about noon to tell Whitlam they
were tired of his policies which they claimed were not
aimed at helping them. The Whitlam Government recently
removed a S 12 per ton subsidy on phosphates.
Whitlam earlier refused to attend a mass meeting of the
farmers scheduled after the election rally. At the meeting
the farmers decided to withhold livestock from slaughter
for a week next month. (APf

"LIFE IS A FRAGMENT," wrote William Ellery Channing, "a
moment between two eternities, influenced by all that has
preceded, and to influence all that follows. The only way to
illumine it is by extent of view."
And Shakespeare describes the world as a stage on which we
have our entrances and our exits and ... from the cradle to the
grave ... a man plays many parts.
Shakespeare also wrote:
Their going hence, even as their coming hither.
Ripeness is all
We are born ... the physical side of an aged man lives through
the stages described so vividly by Shakespeare ... and then he dies.
There is a finality to death that is shattering.
I remember the funeral of the Hon. Thaddeus Augustus Toote.
After the ceremony of interment in St. Matthew's cemetery was
completed his friends started to file away from the graveside.
Already the thoughts of most of them were elsewhere. Some of
them had attended the funeral out of a sense of duty. This is true
of the funeral of every prominent person. They were in a hurry to
get away. Subconsciously they felt that they had already wasted
too much time on the dead. They wanted to get on with the job
One man in that crowd found it difficult to accept the finality
of death for his friend. As the group started to disperse Dionisio
deGregory upbraided them.
"Look at you going there," he said. "You ate the man's food,
you drank his wine, you laughed and had fun with him while he
was alive. He helped some of you when you needed a friend. Now
he is dead ... you leave him here alone in a grave. I'm spending
this evening with him."
He walked across to a wall near the grave and sat down .on it.
No one joined him.
Thaddeus Augustus Toote had one faithful friend ... even in
Now Dionisio deGregory is dead. Mr. Toote's remarkable wife
is also dead. Except for a stone that marks the spot where they
lay ... they are barely a memory for those ... still among the living
... who shared the stage with them.
This isn't what I started to write when I sat down to do this
article but this incident welled up from the deep recesses of
memory and it is a fitting introduction to the thought I will try
I will try to lift this discussion above the sordid affairs of
everyday human experience and place it on the hieh lane of the
imperishable spirit but at this stage I cannot refrain from pointing
out the irony ... yes, even the injustice of human behaviour ...
when it is realized that the P.L.P. government has not seen fit to
perpetuate the memory of Thaddeus and Rita Toote in any form.
Thaddeus Toote made a great contribution to the development
of coloured people in the Bahamas, especially in the field of
education and sports.
Rita Toote was one of the most unselfish and dedicated human
beings I have ever known. She gave her life to the service of
humanity and in death she left the bulk of her estate to the
Anglican Church and St. John's College so that ... although
unseen ... her glorious spirit still marches on.
I am writing this article at 4.30 a.m. on February 20th. This
means she has been dead exactly 15 months today. And yet I
never hear her name mentioned any more and I wonder how
many of the thousands of people she helped during her life time
pause for just a second to bless her niemory.
The tide of time flows inexorably from the cradle to the grave
and there is no power on earth that can divert its course or
postpone for one second the final moment in human experience
when "the grim reaper" comes to gather his own.
We often speak of a man or a woman being in a dying
condition. These are the occasions when we see the dark shadow
of death slowly closing in on a human life. But a fact that too
many of us overlook in our human relations is that, from the
moment a person draws his or her first breath ... in that
moment the infant begins to die. You remember the lines, of
course: "We are dying day by day ... soon from earth to pass
In our own daily experience we watch the hands of the clock
tick out the seconds of life and we are often impatient because it
seems to move so slowly ... but, in our impatience, we are only
trying to speed our passage to the grave.
But Father Time takes his own time ... no power can delay
him, nor can any power hasten his footsteps. He is never too
early, nor is he ever too late. He always arrives precisely on time.
But death of the flesh is not final. For the Christian physical
death is a triumph in which the eternal spirit is released from its
prison of human flesh and reaches its final destiny in a glorious ...
or inglorious, as the case may be ... new life beyond the grave.
And yet there are men who. in the words of Longfellow, plant
footsteps in the sands of time ... that perform the function of the
beams of a lighthouse that help to guide the footsteps of later
travellers across "this vale of tears".
Life is real, life is earnest,
And the grave is not its goal
Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
Was not spoken of the soul.
Such a man was Moses who led God's own chosen people out
of the bondage of Egyptian slavery.

PM celebrates 44th birthday
with big ball in Freeport *
Special to The Tribune
THE PRIME Minister had 44
reasons for celebrating his
birthday on Saturday night but
the decision to have his
Birthday Ball in Freeport was a
rewarding one as Freeporters
turned on the warmth and
welcome for Mr. Pindling and
his family to make the event a
More than 1,000 persons
converged on the Camelot
Room of the King's Inn to join
in an entertaining evening to
help the nation's chief
executive launch into his 45th
year. The proceeds of the Ball
are to help the South Andros
High School Fund, Mr.
Pindling's political constitu-
Although the Ball was billed
as a joint Freeport-Nassau
celebration it was obvious that

number. Cabinet officials and
other high-ranking Government
dignitaries dutifully showed up
to demonstrate their support.
The Pindling party included
Mrs. Pindling, their four
children and his mother and
Mr. Dudley Capron acted as
Master of Ceremonies and his
orchestra was the first of many
musical groups to entertain
during the long evening.
Following the official arrival
of the Prime Minister and Mrs.
Pindling the Invocation was
delivered by the Rev. Allen

provided some good dinner

because I was deeply stirred last night by Cecil B. de Mille's
classic film on the story of the man who walked and talked with
God. I am unable to sleep until I get the emotion it aroused
worked out of my system.
Like other great men, Moses was created by God to fill a
special purpose in helping to shape the affairs of human
experience down through the ages.
My wife and I saw this lengthy film in a theatre somewhere
several years ago. I don't remember when or where.
It was too long for a single TV programme and so it was shown
for two evenings and took five hours of TV time. We enjoyed
every second of it and, should it be shown at any time in the
future, we will enjoy it a third time because it is the kind of story
that has refreshed the spirit and strengthened the will of people
down through the ages. It is an immortal story that will live to
the end of endless time.
I am writing this story because it fits into a pattern we see
unfolding around us in many parts of the world today where
lesser men try to don the mantle and wear the sandals of this
great instrument of God.
It is a great ambition for any man to desire to follow in the
footsteps of Moses because he was a man who gave up the
possibility of sitting on the throne of Pharoah ... the most
powerful kingdom on earth "for a season" ... in order to serve
God and lead his people out of bondage.
There were great moments in this film:
When Ramesees, whose power as a Pharoah was undisputed
in the world of men, finally was obliged to admit in an audible
whisper that his gods were false and that ... in deed and in fact ...
the God of Moses IS GOD.
When Moses came down out of the holy mountain and
declared that the Ten Commandments, carved in two tablets of
stone, were written by the finger of God.
When Moses came down from the mountain bearing the ten
laws ... written by the finger of God ... that have continued to be
the basis for all laws governing human behaviour since that time
he found that, during his absence, the people had turned away
from the God of Israel and, under the influence of Nathan, had
built a golden calf and were worshipping it instead of the God of
spirit ... and "they were as children who had lost their faith."
You have committed a great sin, Moses chastised the people:
there is no freedom without the law, he said; and then showed
them that those who failed to live by the law shall die by it.
For this great sin the people who participated in this outrage
were condemned by God to wander in the wilderness for 40 years
until all of them had died.
God then took Moses up on to a great elevation and, with his
(Moses) aged eyes, allowed him to see the Promised Land from
afar off. Then he placed Joshua ... the man who had gone part
way up in the holy mountain with Moses when he received the
Ten Commandments ... at the head of a new generation of His
people and guided their footsteps into the land He had promised
Throughout this story one great fact is emphasized. It is that
Moses sacrificed the greatest of all earthly prizes to lead his
people. He gave them his ALL. ie took nothing from them.
One character ... Nathan ... dogged his footsteps. Like Moses,
Nathan was a Jew but the difference between these two men was
Moses was reared as the son of Pharoah's sister. He was
recognized as a great Prince in the house of Pharoah. The Pharoah
of his youth and early manhood loved him so deeply that he had
chosen him over his own son Ramesees to fill the throne of Egypt
after his death.
But when Moses learned that he. was in fact the son of Jewish
slaves he gave it all up to lead his people.
Nathan, on the other hand, was a slave in the pits of Rome but
he betrayed Moses ... exactly as Judas would later betray Christ ...
for the love of gold and power.
Look around you in the world today and ask yourself whether
those who would have the people believe that they are a Moses
are in fact more akin to a Nathan parading under false colours.
*** **** ** *
And yet, there is no reason for despair, even though God may
punish those who follow false leaders, because, as Helen Keller so
aptly puts it:
"The very fact that we are still here carrying on the contest
against the hosts of annihilation proves that on the whole the
battle has gone for humanity.
"The world's great heart has proved equal to the prodigious
undertaking which God set it. Rebuffed but always persevering:
self-reproached but ever gaining faith: undaunted, tenacious, the
heart of man labours towards immeasurably distant goals.
"Discouraged not by difficulties without, or the anguish of
ages within, the heart listens to a secret voice that whispers: "Be
not dismayed; in the future lies the Promised Land."
THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
Success lies, not in achieving what you aim at, but in aiming at
what you ought to achieve, and pressing forward, sure of
achievement here, or if not here, hereafter.- R. F. HORTON
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I
may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them, and try to follow where they lead. L. M.

He enjoys Christmas
thru the entire year
DEAR ABBY: For the last two years, my husband and I
and our little son have been spending the Christmas holi-
days with my family [parents, sisters, brothers, etc.].
On Christmas morning everyone gathers in the living
room and we all open our Christmas gifts under the tree.
Everyone, except my husband. He refuses to open his pres-
ents at that time. He takes them home-still gift-wrapped,
and opens one or two a week. It takes months before
they're all opened. He says if he spreads the excitement
over a long period of time he enjoys it more than opening
15 or 20 gifts in a half hour and then experiencing a big
letdown. He prefers to prolong the joys of Christmas as
long as possible.
I think it's rude to make people wait months to be
thanked for a Christmas gift. [As of today, he still hasn't
opened mine!] He says they are his gifts and he can open
them whenever he feels like it. What do you think of this
weirdo! NEW MEXICO WIFE
DEAR WIFE: His behavior Is somewhat strange, but he's
right, they're his gifts to open whenever he feels like it. By
now your family must be accustomed to this peculiarity.
But it might comfort you to know that there's at least one
mor* "weirdo" who likes to prolong the joys of Christmas.
DEAR ABBY: There is a nut who lives across the street
from us who still has his Christmas ornaments up! People
come from all over just to drive by his house and laugh!
It's not just a decorated tree out in front either. He's got
Santa and the reindeers on the roof, and his whole front
porch and lawn are decorated with every kind of Christmas
ornament you can imagine.
Wouldn't you think by this time he'd take that silly look-
ing stuff down?
When the neighbors see him, they say, "Merry Christ-
mas" [in March!] and he responds with, "And a happy
Print this, he might take the hint.
DISGUSTED IN PENNSYLVANIA
DEAR ABBY: I don't mean to carp, but I was bothered
by one of your reader's references to being "gypped," and
by the use of that word in the headline of your column.
It's a common but probably unintentional slur, for most
people are unaware that the expression "gypped" comes
from the word gypsy.
I am not a gypsy, but because of the connection between
these two words, I am offended. Can't we stop using the
word "gypped" as a synonym for cheat?
CONCERNED IN ANN ARBOR
DEAR CONCERNED: Even though [according to Ted
Bernstein, my expert on words] the expression "gypped"
probably does come from the word "gypsy." I doubt that
even a gypsy would make a connection and feel maligned.
In any case, I am not responsible for the headlines on my
column, Your local editor is.

WHY SHOULD Americans
invest in the Bahamas and visit
the Commonwealth as tourists'?
U.S. citizens found the
answers to these questions at
the recent 37th Annual
Chicago World Trade
Conference, where the
Bahamas was represented by a
delegation made up of
businessmen from the public
and private sectors.
The delegation was headed
by Carlton E. Francis, M.PI..
Chairman of the Bahamas
Development Corporation, and
included George Collymore,
Godfrey Eneas, Deputy
Director of Agriculture, John
A. Rabley of Barclays Bank
International Ltd., and Garret
Finlayson of Businsss Systems
Ltd. Mr. Francis was
accompanied by his wife.
Hle said after he returned
home, "It is expected that
favourable connections and
encouragement for influx of
investment capital and for
tourist attraction will flow
from the presence of the
Bahamas at this internationally
The primary objective of the
conference was to initiate and
strengthen trade and industrial
links between the United
States and other parts of the
Since the tnferience was ani

industry from the Midswestern

at which the Bahamas could

did this by means of a booth

The opportunities for
promotion were increased at a
