Pindling's Negro government "to curb press freedom in the Indicated- Contulr Local Forocait "Under this bill," said Sir Etienne Dupuch, 60-year-old publisher of the Nassau Tribune, "I face. two possibilities to sell and get out, or accept the threat of prison at the whim of a colored House of A-ssembly." The bill, called the Powers K!J33IjB r w w i Figure Show High Temperatures Expected For Daytime Thursday isolated Precipitation Not Optimism Surrounds United Fund Goal (APlrpko) PRICES EFFECTIVE NOV. 14th THRU 23th FODGE- ries will occur in the Southern and Northern Rocky Mountain States. Rain is scheduled for the Pacific Northwest. BAND OF RAIN Rain will extend through the Mississippi Valley into the Southern Plains today with snow flurries in the Upper Great Lakes area. Showers and snow flur Weather Table ICLES 6 PK. and Privileges Act, provides that newspapermen publishing "false or misleading" reports on proceedings in the House of Assembly or the Senate may be found guilty of contempt of either House, without recourse to any court. Dupuch, a Negro whose newspaper celebrates its 65th anniversary next week, said the bill would "crush the very freedom which made It possible for a colored government to rise to power." An attempt to launch debate on the bill Wednesday was blocked by Sir Roland Symo-nette, leader of the minority United Bahamian Party. The House was adjourned until Nov. 20 after Symonette argued that the opposition needed time to study the bill. Pindling, who solidified control of the islands by his black-controlled Progressive Labor Party in a landslide election victory last April 10, has been sensitive to press criticism, especially from the Tribune, which fought his bid for power. Speaker Alvin Braynen once barred a Nassau Guardian reporter from the press table because he disliked the handling of a story. House members have made frequent attacks on the press from the floor. Dupuch, who represented the UBP in the Senate, resigned last Saturday in protest of what he said was the way proceedings now are conducted. The Tribune said that no official record is kept of House or Senate debates and "it would be our word against theirs" if a newspaper's account were challenged. "Who would be the arbiter?" the Tribune asked. 38l By The Associated Press HI Lo Albany 36 29 Albuquerque 62 40 Ailania 51 25 Bismarck 47 22 Boise 44 .33 Boston 44 3" Buffalo 35 30 Chicago 43 ,13 Cincinnati ,.45 26 Cleveland 40 31 Denver 47 30 Des Moines 39 2(1 Detroit 42 23 Fairbanks 3 14 Fort Worth 76 46 Helena 41 30 Indianapolis 43 22 Juneau 35 31 Kansas City 56 .33 Los Angeles 72 54 Louisville 48 26 Memphis 58 25 Milwaukee 43 .33 Mpls.
