CONCERN VOICED BY PUBLIC SERVANTS & TEACHERS


proposal to make 55


A PROPOSAL BY GOVERNMENT to change the
civil service retirement age from 60 to 55 is causing
widespread concern among public servants who feel the
scheme would in effect be "putting them out to
pasture" at the peak of their careers.
The recommendation,
although still in the discussion Cei
stage, seems to have little
likelihood of success in view of Sv c
the opposition being
encountered from the Public
Service Union and the Bahamas
Teachers Union. i ,
"We feel that a teacher or a "- .
civil servant does not mature
until he is 45 or 50 at which
time he is at the peak of his
career," Teachers Union


president C. N. Curling told
The Tribune.
He said his union, which met
Wednesday night to discuss the
matter, expects to rhake.
representations to government
in conjunction with the Public
Service Union.
The move by government to
reduce the civil service
retirement age to 55 for men
and women has been prompted
by a number of considerations.
Chief of these is the need to
make room for young
returning graduates, several
hundred of whom are bonded
to government.
MANDATORY
From an informed source
The Tribune was told that in
most of the Caribbean
countries retirement is
mandatory at 55. Reduction of
the retirement age here would
not affect pension rights, The
Tribune was told.
At present a public servant is
eligible for a maximum pension
of two-thirds of his retiring
salary, providing he has
completed 40 years at the age
of 60.
In other places where
retirement is mandatory at 55,
the length of service for
two-thirds pension works out
to about 33 years, it was
explained.
Female public servants, who
until now could be retired at
50, would go to 55 under the
proposed plan.
"The change, however, is
not likely to affect women, as
they are never put out at 50
unless they wish to go," the
source said.
He explained that many
such women stayed on in the
service until 55 and even 60.
The present civil service
establishment has stood steady
at between 7 to 8,000 for the
past two years following an
almost complete "freeze" on
employment two years ago.
The Tribune's informant
said that a number of
government departments was
at present overstaffed.
The official view seems to be
that with more qualified
Bahamians becoming available,
greater efficiency can be
instituted with a
commensurate cut-back in
manpower.
In March 1970 The Tribune
reported that civil service rolls
had expanded from 4,318
employees in 1966 to 7,938 in
1970 an 84 per cent increase
within the space of four years.

$10m., five year US grant for Andros



agricultural research project
By MIKE LOTHIAN
A $10 MILLION GRANT to the Bahamas Government from the U.S. Agency for International
Development (AID) is to finance a five-year research programme on Andros to determine how the
Bahamas can best develop its agricultural potential.


A general agreement for
technical assistance was signed
at the (abinet Office
Thursday afternoon by
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling and U.S. Consul
General to the Bahamas
Moncreif J. Spear, and an
agreement for the Andros
project was signed this morning
by Agriculture Minister
Anthony Roberts and Dr.
Erven Long, associate assistant
director of AID's Technical
Assistance Bureau.
Preliminary plans call for the
development of at least 2,000
acres in the area between
Nichol's Town and Lowe
Sound, North Andros. The
complex will include a research
centre and 16 family-sized
farms, to be operated by
Bahamian families who,
according to a Government
press release, "will be selected
for their ability to relate to and
their interest in agriculture and
livestock fanning."
The research centre will be
comprised of administrative
bu ildings, laboratories,
classrooms, dormitories, homes
for the staff, storage areas and
machinery repair shops.
Sixteen farm houses also will
be built and equipped.
The research centre will also
serve as training facilities, which
will be developed "to prepare
people without an agricultural
background to become
livestock and agricultural
producers.
"The programme calls for
the training of Bahamians at
technical and professional
levels who will carry on the
management, research and
development responsibility at
the termination of the AID


project agreement in five years.
These candidates will probably
study in the United States, but
will work in various positions
at the project prior to their
selection as participants in the
training programme."
During the five years of the
agreement the centre will be
staffed by American specialists
in economics, sociology,
animal husbandry, agronomy,
soil science, horticulture and
agricultural engineering.
On the research side, steps
will be taken "to determine the
most suitable type of grass and
legumes for the local situation,
to identify the most
appropriate fruit and vegetable
crops and the nost suitable
breed of cattle for the
Bahamas, and to learn the best
and most economical means of
bringing land into production
under Andros conditions."
As tests at the research
centre produce probable
solutions to the various
problems. the methods, type of
crops and livestock. and types
of machinery thought more
likely to succeed will be
introduced on the 16 pilot
farms for testing under actual
farming conditions.
MEAT
Special attention is to be
given to finding the right
agricultural ingredients so that
the farms can operate primarily
as livestock producers to u'lt
down on meat imports, with
suitable fruit and vegetable
crops integrated into the
system on each farm.
Studies also will be launch:'d
into marketing the produce
and to determine costs and
optimum farm size for the
Bahamian situation.


"The final success of the
pilot project will be judged on
the basis of the economic
viability of the farms which are
established."
The Government statement
cautions against the public
expecting any dramatic results
from the five-year programme.
"The nature of the
programme is such that only
preliminary results can be
obtained during the years
covered by the project
agreement," the statement
said. "Ministry of Agriculture
resources will therefore be
developed to continue and
carry out the necessary
research activities started under
this project."
However. a more positive
attitude was expressed by the
Agriculture Minister at this
morning's signing ceremony.
"It is anticipated that at the
end of the five-year period,"
Mr. Roberts said, "the farms
will have reached a point where
they will be self-sufficient."
Mr. Roberts. in a question
and answer session with the
press after the signing of the
agreement, confirmed that the
whole five-year programme is
being financed by a $10
million grant from AID to the
Bahamas. Crown Lands on
Andros are being made
available for the project.
Also present this morning
were Finance and Development
Minister Carlton Francis and
Ilealth Minister Loftus Roker
Mr. Roker said that before
he entered the Cabinet "this
idea was conceived, and
although others are now
handling it I believe in some
way I was responsible for its
beginning."

AGAINST HOTEL, posture as 'biggest sellout'

BUT UNION SEEK i a isto
BUT UNIOTT N SEEKT in Bahamian history

UTTI FMFMT


L l ii LIUVLIm I
EMPLOYEES of the King's
Inn, Freeport, last night voted
unanimously to authorise their
union leaders to call a strike
against the hotel anytime after
January 26, the day the legal
"cooling-off" period in the
two-month-old dispute over
pay procedures expires.
However, the possibility that
strike action would paralyse
the 800-room hotel complex:
diminished this morning when
a spokesman for the Bahamas
Hotel and Catering Workers'
Union expressed confidence
that there would be an early
settlement of the dispute.
Union officials today
refused to disclose the result of
last night's strike vote, held at
the Jones Town Primary
School in Eight Mile Rock, for
fear the publicity might
jeopardize the chances of a
negotiated settlement.
But reliable sources told The
Tribune that the workers voted
unanimously in favour of a
work-stoppage if their leaders
felt the action became
necessary.
The strike vote was
conducted by Labour Ministry
officials John T. Roker and Mr.
Turnquest.
Union organizer and negoti-.
ator Thomas Bastian told
The Tribune this morning that
he was in an all-night
negotiating session last night
with King's Inn controller
Booklam.
HOPEFUL
Following that meeting, Mr.
Bastian said, "We have hopes
of reaching a settlement either
today or tomorrow. I don't
think it will take longer than
tomorrow."
The dispute began in
mid-November last year when
the hotel bought a computer
and began paying employees
every 21 days instead of every
week, as had been done in the
past.
The workers, backed by
Grand Bahamas' M. P. Kendal
Nottage and M.P. for West End
and Bimini Henry Bowen, say
they cannot meet weekly
payments for rent and food if
they are paid every third week.
The Labour Ministry was
called in, and Labour Minister
Clifford Darling ruled in favour
of the workers, but King's Inn
managing partner Charles
Schlakman has allegedly
refused to comply with the
Ministry decision.
The lack of progress in
negotiations led to a brief
work-stoppage by hotel dining
room workers on the night of
December 30. About a dozen
waiters are reported to have
gone on a rampage, overturning
furniture, smashing crockery
and frightening guests.
The dispute and threats of
strike come at a time when
Freeport, already suffering
from declining numbers of
tourists, is trying to take
advart:ag' of the usually
prosperous winter season.

THE ONLY THING CONSISTENT about FNM
parliamentarians is that "they were and still are working
hand-in-glove with the PLP to ram down the throats of the
Bahamian people an independent status to which most Bahamians
are opposed," Marsh Harbour M.P. Errington Watkins declared


today.
Mr. Watkins issued a press
release today to counter an
FNM statement Wednesday
defending the party's position
on independence and its
actions at the London
constitutional talks last month.
The FNM release said the
party had been consistent in its
independence stand, and had
participated in the London
conference to ensure the
inclusion in the constitution of
entrenched provisions to
protect the rights of the
people.
Mr. Watkins said today that
the entrenched provisions
"amount to nothing but a few
meaningless words written on a
few sheets of paper.
"What they (other FNM
parliamentarians) fail to realize
is that come July 11, 1973,
regardless of the constitution
with its entrenched clauses, the
PLP will do exactly as they
wish, whether it be on the
matter of freedom of
movement, the monopoly of
ZNS or the introduction of
income tax.
NO MATTER
"No matter how strongly
worded a constitution might
be, or whether it is the best
ever written for a new
independent territory," Mr.
Watkins continued, "it is only


A BLACK EYE

FOR ZNS'

CALSEY JOHNSON?
RADIO BAHAMAS News
Director Calsey Johnson, a
regular visitor to Hobby Horse
Hall, was involved in an
argument with restaurant
concessionnaire Nelson
Chipman last Saturday and
suffered an injured left eye as a
result.
Mr. Johnson returned to his
duties at Radio Bahamas
Monday, well shaded by a pair
of dark glasses.
There have been varying
reports as to the reason for the
argument, but Mr. Johnson was
said to be out-of-town today
and could not be contacted for
comment.
One informant said that Mr.
Chipman was involved in a
dispute with a Bahamian
customer when Mr. Johnson
intervened and a fight broke
out.
The second version is that
Mr. Johnson was angered by
the slow service he was
accorded at the restaurant bar
in view of his position. Mr.
Chipman was brought into the
argument at which time he was
reportedly told by Mr. Johnson
that the Prime Minister would
be informed of what had
happened. A fight then ensued.
The third report is that Mr.
Johnson ordered a steak
dinner, but some question
arose over his payment for the
meal. This, it was said, led to
an argument and the fight.
The quarrel between the two
men reportedly took place at
the end of the last race for the
day and there were only a few
persons present in the
restaurant.
The Tribune was also unable
to contact Mr. Chipman for
comment.

that will be responsible for its
implementation.
"Facts speak for themselves.
More than enough facts have
been produced during the past
six years on the incompetence,
blunderings and ineptness of
the PLP to make the devil
himself cringe with fear and
apprehension."
The Marsh arbour M.I'.
said his "colleagues" in the
FNM parliamentary group
know only too well that their
supporters opposed
independence.
''The unconditional
surrender of the FNM is
regarded by most as the biggest
sell-out in Bahamian history.
Elected on an
anti-independence ticket, Mr.
Watkins' colleagues, in his
opinion, "became the biggest
political hypocrites ever to
appear on the Bahamian
political scene.
"With more than 40 percent
of the voting public supporting
them at the polls, they lie
down at the feet of the PLP
and beg to be trampled into
the dust.
"This I cannot and will not
agree with. Such actions in my
opinion are spineless and our
supporters deserve much
better," Mr. Watkins said.

Printers blamed

for 'no Hansard'
THE "non-existence" of
verbatim reports of House of
Assembly proceedings is due
"entirely to the printers,"
House Speaker Arlington
Butler informed members at
Wednesday's meeting.
Mr. Butler apologized for
the absence of the Hansard,
but made certain to mention
that his reference was in no
way intended as an attack on
the press.
At the close of the meeting
Opposition FNM representative
Cleophas Adderley drew
attention to the date of the
agenda and facetiously asked
the Speaker if it was the
House's intention to work a
year in arrears.
The date on the agenda was
January 17, 1972.

GEORGE BETHELL

DIES, AGED 89
GEORGE BETHEL, 89, the
organist of St. Patrick's
Anglican Church, Governor's
Harbour, for 76 years, died
shortly before 1 p.m. today at
his home "Belmont",
Governor's Harbour.
Mr. Bethel, a leading citizen
at the island, suffered a stroke
several months ago and had
been in failing health ever
since. He drove his car and
operated his small grocery shop
up until about October last
year.
He had been the catechist at
St. Patrick's for a number of
years.
He is survived by his
daughter, Miss Enid Bethel,
who is the representative at
Governor's Harbour for the
Nassau real estate firm of H.G.
Christie, and two sisters, Flora
and Emma Bethel.

in the heart of downtown
Managua. It was extensively
damaged, but t is possible the
building is still structurally
sound, it might be repairable."
Mr. Buchanan said.
DEVASTATION
"On the morning of Jan. 3
we went to the main office and
from the roof we could sec a
scene of tremendous
devastation. There were just a
few large buildings remaining
standing, all damaged. There
was still smoke, everything was
blackened and gutted."
BOLAM's main office in
Managua, a four-storey
building also housing the
British Embassy. is right in the
heart of the 600 city blocks
that have been cordoned off by
"high barbed-wire fencing" to
keep unauthorised people out.
It is feared some of the
buildings, which are still
standing, could collapse.
One of BOLAM's
domestic service branches in
Managua was located in a
downtown hotel which
collapsed in the earthquake
and was then gutted by fire.
"When we got there," said
Mr. Buchanan, "the top storeys
were on top of our branch, and
our branch must have been
underground. It was a total
loss.
BOLAM's second
domestic outlet in the city,
located in the industrial sector,
was "very slightly damaged,
and as of the eleventh (of
January) was back in service.'
Of BOLAM's 70-odd
employees in the city, none
were among the estimated
10,000 dead. "We had some
minor injuries, but no
fatalities." Mr. Buchanan said.
The homes of all but one of
BOLAM's five top executives
were totally destroyed. The
wives of all senior executives
had been evacuated from the
city shortly after the disaster,
and the five top men were
living together in the one
house, along with a senior staff
member of another company
whose home had also been
wrecked.
The two Nassau bankers told
The Tribune that during their
stay they were struck by the
fact that the "atmosphere was
one of tremendous work being
done by everyone to get things
working again. By the time we
left electricity had been
restored, water service had
been restored and telephones
were more or less working.
Everyone has pitched in. There
was a lot of activity."
While the two bankers have
now returned to Nassau,
Managua is still struggling to
feed the tens of thousands of
homeless, help the 20,000
injured and to find and either
burn or bury the thousands of
dead.

completing the text of an
agreement."
The North Vietnamese
delegation in Paris said the top
negotiators for each side
would resume their talks "to
complete the agreement on
ending the war and
re-establishing peace in
Vietnam."
Hanoi's announcement
differed from the U.S.
statement in referring to "the
agreement' rather than "an
agreement." The North
Vietnamese have demanded
that the United States sign
without major revisions the
agreement drafted in October.
Major parts of the October
draft were unacceptable to the
Saigon government, and
Ziegler's reference to "an
agreement" appeared to
indicate a break with the
October text could be
expected.
Asked later about the
difference in language, Ziegler
said: "The intention of both is
the same. There is no
substantive difference."
Communist officials in Paris
could not be reached for
comment.
Comments by President
Nixon's spokesman appeared
to rule out a cease-fire until
negotiations are complete.
Earlier reports from Saigon
forecast a unilateral cease-fire
by the United States and South
Vietnam on Friday, the eve of
Nixon's inauguration.
Ziegler said he would not set
a timetable or elaborate on the
joint statement, citing an
agreement by both sides not to
publicly discuss the substance
of the Kissinger negotiations.
But in an indication that the
accord is still tentative -
Ziegler later said he could not
comment "until a final
agreement is reached."
Kissinger, Nixon's chief
foreign affairs adviser and
Vietnam negotiator for four
years, is expected to leave for
Paris on Monday for "the
purpose of substantive
negotiations," Ziegler said.
INDICATION
Later, Ziegler said
"President Nixon's objective is
to end the fighting and restore
the peace in Vietnam as soon as
possible by means of a
negotiated settlement."
His use of the words "end
the fighting" was seen as an
indication that Nixon had
decided not to declare a
unilateral cease-fire until final
agreement is reached. South
Vietnamese sources had said
Tuesday that Nixon would
make such a move to pave the
way for a final pact. On
Monday, Nixon halted all U.S.
bombing, shelling and mining
of South Vietnam.
As the joint announcement
sent peace hopes soaring even
higher, Gen. Alexander M. Haig
Jr. hurried through a series of
meetings with Southeast Asian
leaders at Nixon's behest,
apparently to brief them on
details of the tentative accord.
South Vietnamese President
Nguyen van Thieu was
reported to still have some
reservations about the
protocols, or technical
instruments to implement the
peace agreement. But a
statement by his foreign
minister, Tran Van Lam, that
"peace is near" seemed to
indicate the remaining issues
could be resolved quickly.


By Jim Adams
Washington (AP)-Three days of
festivity, ceremony and protest
marking President Nixon's second
inauguration were to begin
Thursday with a gala reception for
Vice President and Mrs. Spiro T.
Agnew.
Scene of the Vice President's
reception was a Smithsonian
Museum hall, beneath the huge,
tattered Old Glory that Inspired
"The Star Spangled Banner."
Scheduled to follow the
reception was a "Salute to the
States" the first of a series of
shows, concerts and balls both to
celebrate the SSth inauguration of a
President and to rise money to pay
the estimated $4 million cost of
this one.
The theme throughout the three
days of festivities and a worship
service Sunday is "Spirit of '76,"
recalling the formative years of the
nation and looking forward to the
celebration of its 200th anniversary
in 1976.
The capital is dressed up for
President Nixon's swearingn
Saturday with red, white and blue
bunting and bleachers up and down
the Pennsylvania Avenue parade
route.
At each end of the Avenue are
elaborate stands, one at the Capitol
where the President will take the
35-word oath of office at noon, and
the other in front of the White
House where he will review the
parade that will follow him down
the street.
But the inaugural committee's
executive director. Job S. Magruder,
Thursday reiterated his concern
that antiwar demonstrations
Saturday may trigger violence to
mar the festivities.
Magruder, interviewed on the
CBS morning news, said "hardcore
radicals" will be among the
demonstrators and previously have
"promulgated violence" during
protests in Washington and at the
Republican National Convention in
Miami Beach last August.
The Pentagon announced that
about 2,000 marines, army
paratroopers and military
policemen from Ft. Bragg, N.C.,
and Ft. Meade, Md., were being
brought to Washington Thursday to
stand by in case of trouble.
Undettered by the joint
U.S.-North Vietnamese
announcement Thursday that secret
peace talks would resume in Pari
next week, sponsors of the antiwar
march predicted tens of thousands
would participate. Magruder called
on four members of Congress
supporting the demonstrations to
urge that they be peaceful.
One of the four, Rep. Bells S.
4bzug, (D-N.Y.) termed ironic
that the peace call came from an
administration that "dropped
millions of tons of bombs on
civilians."
500,000 EXPECTED
More than 500,000 people
including some 200
medal-of-honour winners ae
expected for the parade,
ceremonies and galas.
President Nixon was expected
back from Key Biscayne too late to
attend the reception for the Vice
President and the "Salute to the
States" Thursday. Mrs. Nixon
accepted invitations to go In his
place.
The "Salute to the States," with
tickets priced from $25 to $100,
featured comedian Bob Hope, the
Pat Boone family, Hank Williams
and Les Brown's band.
Officials were counting on
Agnew's $10-a-ticket reception and
the "Salute to the States" to raise
more than $600,000.
Five Inaugural balls Saturday
night, including two in Smithsonian
Museum buildings and one in the
historic Pension building that
hosted its first inaugural ball in
1885, are supposed to raise $1
million.
The inaugural committee says $1
million from the sale of souvenir
medals, $500,000 from parade
tickets, $500,000 from tickets for
five Inaugural concerts Friday night
revenue should help pay the bill.
Inaugural officials say the only
cost to the taxpayer is the
$410,000 inaugural stand at the
Capitol and $90,000 set aside for
police, administration and snow
removal if necessary.
The inaugural stand includes a
huge press platform with television
studios for live coverage of
President Nixon's and Vice
President Agnew's swearing-in
ceremony starting at 11:30 a.m.
EST Saturday.
Nixon, Agnew and their wives
will lunch at the Capitol, and the
inaugural parade with 35 floats and
55 bands including one with
1,976 members starts down
Pennsylvania Avenue at 1:15 p.m.
EST.
After the three days of festivity
ending with the balls Saturday
night, worship service will be held
in the White House Sunday
morning to conclude the inaugural
events.

WASIINGTON HONE
WASHINGTON (AP)- Police
said five persons were shot to death
r and three children were drowned
Thursday in the Washington
headquarters of a Muslim religious
sect.
A police spokesman said it
appeared two of the shooting
victims were children. The scene of
the slaying is a home formerly
owned by Milwaukee Bucks
professional basketball star Karem
Abdul Jabbar, at 16th and Juniper
Streets in the city's northwest
quadrant, near Walter Reed U.S.
army medical centre.
Two persons were shot and
wounded, one ritically, police said.
The bodies of three children were
found drowned in a bathtub, they
added.
A police source reported the
bodies were badly mutilated.
Jabbar, in a telephone interview
from Milwaukee, said the killing
must have been done by lunatics...
that's the only explanation."
Jabbar is a member of the
Muslim sect, known as the Hanafi
Muslims. He reportedly bought the
home in 1971 in an area of
expensive homes known as the
black gold coast where many of
Washington's wealthiest black
families live.
Newspaper reports said Jabbsr
sold the home to the Muslim sect in
1972.
A police spokesman said it was
definitelyy an execution."
Police said they were having
trouble identifying the victims.
Two women who were found shot
in the head, but alive, inside the
house were identified as Bibi
Khaalis and Almina Khaalis, both
about 20.
Bibi Khaalis was reported in
critical condition and Almina
Khaalis in fair condition. North
Carolina civil-rights leader Dr.
Reginald Hawkins, who was a
Democratic candidate for Governor
in 1964 and 1968, was quoted a
saying Bibi Khaalis was his daughter
and that the three children
originally reported found in a
bathtub were hers.
Police said they could not
confirm these identifications.
Police lieutenant Joseph O'Brien
said the killings were discovered
about 4:30 p.m. when an occupant
of the home arrived from a
shopping tour. He told police when
he got no answer at the front of the
house he went around to the back
and saw four black men running
through the back yard.
Upon entering the house, the
man, who wa not identified,
discovered the bodies.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THE BAHAMAS had the perfect constitution for any small
country prior to the 1964 change in the structure of the
Government when the colony graduated from Representative to
Responsible government.
I was indirectly reminded of this fact a few nights ago when I
listened to a discussion on TV by five leading news commentators
in the U.S. on the prospects of President Nixon's attitudes and
activities in the White House during the next four years.

Until I came to live in Florida four months ago I had very little
understanding of the functioning of the American government.
All I knew was that they had too many elected officers to
produce a strong and detached government, especially in the
Judiciary and the Police.
How can any community expect to have well administered
Police and Judicial departments when some of the officers
depend on the votes of the people for whom they must hand out
equal justice when, in many cases, families of influence in their
communities may be the most deliberate law breakers?
There have been some famous Sheriffs in the story of America
but, under this elective system, they must have been the
exception rather than the rule.
Before we begin making comparisons, let us examine the
structure of Representative Government that existed in the
colony prior to 1964.
In the vast British Empire there were many forms of
government, depending on the history of the particular areas.
.They were known as Crown Colonies, meaning that, in some
.'measure, they were subject to direction or control by the
:Colonial Office in London.
There were two main standards of Crown Colonies.
One applied to conquered colonies. A.conquered colony was
'administered direct from London with almost complete power
'vested in the Governor as the representative of the Crown.
The other one applied to settled colonies: that is, colonies
settled by natives of England, Scotland, Ireland or Wales.
Britain took the view that, wherever an Englishman settled, he
jIarried his Parliament with him.
This type of constitution was established in the American and
Canadian colonies .... and in four islands in this hemisphere ....
Jamaica, Bermuda, the Bahamas and Barbados.
: When America won her independence from Britain only these
Tour islands enjoyed this advanced form of constitution.
SAfter a riot in Jamaica .... when the Treasury became almost
bankrupt .... the planters, who then controlled the colony, were
afraid of the people, and so they surrendered their constitution to
Britain and descended to the level of a full Crown Colony
administered from London.
This left only Bermuda, the Bahamas and Barbados holding
this privileged position. They came to be known in the Colonial
Office as "the three Bees". The local government in these places
was so strong that they often burnt the dignity of the Colonial
Office with the flame of their independence.
**********
Under the constitution of "the three Bees", the House of
Assembly was elected, as it is today.
Legislation was initiated in this Chamber and they had
complete control over the colony's finances.
The Legislative Council (now named Senate) was appointed by
the Queen on the recommendation of the Governor. These men
were all Elder Statesmen who were successful in their own right,
either in business or in the professions. Many of them came up
from the House as seasoned parliamentarians.
SThe President of the Council was a man who had had long
service in the House and was Leader of the House and sometimes
Speaker of the House for a long time.
I This was the case of Sir Kenneth Solomon. He served first in
the Judiciary. After leaving the Judiciary to go into private
practice he was elected to the House, later being appointed a
member of the Executive Council, then Leader of the
Government in the House, finally Speaker, before being
appointed President of the Legislative Council, an appointment
was later rewarded with a knighthood.
The Legislative Council had the same powers that were enjoyed
by the House of Lords in London before Prime Minister Lloyd
Qeorge started stripping the Lords of its powers during the first
vrorld war. This fine body of men were finally reduced to a mere
ineffective rubber stamp, such as Senators are in the Bahamas
t6day.
"But the Legislative Council retained its powers until the
constitution was changed in 1964 when its name was changed to
Senate and the Bahamas graduated from Representative
gAvemment to its present so-called Responsible government.
SThe reason for the label Responsible is because, under the
present form of Government, the majority party in the elected
House is responsible directly to the people.

When the Legislative Council had full powers it had the right to
a nend or reject all Bills and other legislative measures, except
rnoney bills. It could reject but not amend money bills.
,The Legislative Council often fussed and fumed over items in
tlt Appropriations Bill that seemed to be unnecessary and
esravagant. There were times when .... since they did not have
tl( power to amend a money Bill .... they even talked of rejecting
tlh whole Appropriations Bill .... but they never did.
(There was another safeguard for the colony's finances which
wis vested in the Governor.
;No money could be paid out of the Treasury without a warrant
frbm the Governor who was always a man of mature and broad
experience. He was backed by two other experienced officers in
the persons of the Colonial Secretary and the Receiver General
ard Treasurer.
,ihe Governor was surrounded by his Council in which the
Colonial Secretary, Receiver General and Treasuresand Attorney
General were members by virtue of their offices.
It was a policy of the Colonial Office in small colonies to draw


thr rtbune


the Governor, Chief Justice, Attorney General and, with a very
few exceptions, the Colonial Secretary and Receiver General and
Treasurer from the broad Colonial Service. Bahamians in the
Colonial Service could attain these offices, but in other colonies.
The reason for this policy was to make sure that men holding
these offices would have no local ties and would, therefore, be
completely impartial. Most of the old Chief Justices seldom went
out socially. They kept themselves aloof from all local
associations.

In addition to the officials in the Executive Council, the
Governor appointed several Bahamian members of the House to
this body.
Government policy originated in the Executive Council.
Proposed legislation was sent to the House by the Governor in the
form of Bills or Messages which were presented to the Assembly
by a member of the House who was also a member of Ex. Co.
This individual carried the name of Leader of the Government.
Legislation could also be initiated in the House in the form of
Private Bills, Resolutions or Motions for Select Committee but
practically all the important legislation came from the Executive
Council.
The House and Legco had the power to deal with Government
legislation as they saw fit. But, having passed both Houses, it
went back to the Governor and his Executive Council to be put
into execution, hence the name Executive Council.
At this point the Governor appointed Public Boards for the
various departments. Here again, these men and women were
selected by the Governor because of their background of
experience or specialized knowledge.
It was entirely the Governor's prerogative to select the
personnel of these Boards who, on the advice of highly qualified
officials in each department, administered the affairs of each
department.
*******
In addition the Governor had two more important powers.
If the Governor considered that a Bill passed by both Houses
did not measure up to standard he "reserved it for the
signification of Her Majesty's pleasure" at a Bill signing ceremony
held periodically in the Legislative Council Chamber in the
presence of both Houses of the Legislature. This meant that it
was sent to the Law Officers of the Crown in London for study.
The other important power vested in the Governor was the
right to dissolve the Legislature and send the House back to the
people in any serious conflict between the Government and the
Legislature.
This did not happen often .... only twice in my memory, once
by Sir Charles Dundas and once by Sir Bede Clifford .... but it
was a useful vehicle.
Sir Charles Dundas used it to press the Secret Ballot reform
through the House.
After several unsuccessful attempts to get this measure through
the House, Sir Charles informed the "power" group in the House
that if they didn't pass this Bill he would keep on dissolving the
House until the Bill was passed.
At this point they compromised by passing a Bill establishing
the Secret Ballot as an experiment in New Providence. Several
years later it was extended to the Out Islands.
**********
Under this system nothing serious could go wrong. No matter
how many fools were elected to the House there were checks and
balances all along the line to protect the colony from any serious
folly.
I will give you an example of how the finances of the colony
were protected so that it was impossible for the Government to
be plunged hopelessly in debt, as it is today.
**********
The Budget was prepared in draft form by the Governor's
Executive Council and sent to the House. It was then referred to
the Finance Committee which was composed of one member
from every district represented in the House.
This committee prepared the Appropriations Bill, using the
Governor's draft as a basis. The committee had the power to
remove or add any item to the Draft Estimates in framing the
Appropriations Bill.
One year a high powered politician was chairman of the
Finance Committee. He pressured members into inserting so
many new items that the Appropriations Bill called for
expenditure of about double the Estimated Revenue for the year!
I was a member of the committee that year. I protested to the
chairman that this kind of behaviour was irresponsible.
"Don't worry," he laughed, "the Governor won't spend the
money. But it looks good for the public. This is the way we get
votes. "
I went to see the Governor, who was then Sir Robert Neville.
He told me not to worry. "I won't spend the money." And he
didn't.
But by this kind of irresponsible behaviour, the House passed
its authority on to the Governor who was placed in a position to
spend money only on the items he favoured.
**********
Here we get back to the purpose of this article.
During the discussion on the TV panel on President Nixon one
of the commentators brought out the fact that in recent years
Congress had greatly reduced taxes while extravagantly increasing
expenditure.
This kind of performance contributed to serious inflation in
the U.S. and brought on the recent dollar crisis.
Now the President is placed in a position where he is forced to
slash expenditures in order to check the rot in the dollar.... and
Congress is screaming because members feel that the President is
usurping some of its powers!


History shows that the Executive Government usurps the
powers of Parliament only when its members lose their sense of
responsibility.
President Nixon may be unpopular during his next four years
in the White House .... but it is going to take a strong man to save
America from self-destruction.
*******
FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: There is an interesting side-light to
this story.
One member of this team of five American news commentators
spoke from a studio in Paris. His comments were transmitted tc
the programme by satellite.
Towards the end of the programme he commented that he was
speaking from a government-owned-operated-directed TV station
in Paris. He felt that his colleagues would be interested to know
that the type of free discussion they were holding in a TV station
in America could not possibly take place in the station in Paris.
There is no question about it .... America is perhaps the first
country in the world today .... so free that some of the activities
of its citizens sometimes seem to border on licence.
May I mention again that there can be no true freedom
without some degree of discipline.

advantage which would not be
altered by the devaluation.
aarrud, and Dr. Blackman
attended a meeting of five
Commonwealth Caribbean
finance ministers and central
bank governors in the Bahamas
over the weekend at which
Jamaica communicated its
decision to devalue. It was the
first time Caribbean
governments had consulted a
decision concerning revaluation
of currency, previously decided
by the government of the
pound sterling.
"The importance of this
event should not be
overlooked," Dr. Blackman
said.
Barrow said that Caribbean
governments were not
particularly concerned with the
devaluation in itself. They were
concerned that there should
not be a series of devaluations
with the aim of undercutting
prices leading to cut-throat


within the airline's route
structure, except for Crooked
Island and Arthur's Town, Cat
Island destinations, whose
airstrips cannot accommodate
the Electra.
These two routes are
serviced by Flamingo's Convair

Flamingo general manager
Si d ney Colebrooke said
purchase of the new Aircraft
will ensure "on time, reliable
service to the people of the
Bahamas. We realise," he
continued, "that the
turbo-prop is more solid a
guarantee of reliable and
efficient service than the piston
aircraft."
The Electra includes among
its features, spacious seating, a
large and comfortable lounge,
an overall glamorous interior
and four whisper-smooth
turbine engines.

All the pilots joined
Flamingo's flight crew shortly

Bahamas economy declined in 1972 due


THE BAHAMAS economy
has continued to decline in
1972 due to the political
uncertainties there, the U.S.
Commerce Department
publication "Commerce

The magazine said that the
lack of a clear immigration
policy was the key to
discouraging new investments
and industrial development in
the islands.
E. G. MOSS While the immigration
... acting assistant general managerpolicy limiting the number of


years and alien can work in the
islands has the legitimate goal
of bringing control of the
economy into Bahamian hands,
its inconsistency has caused
delays in issuing work permits

According to the publication

uncertainty is expected as the

WOODEN ADDITION to a building, owned by the Rev. Stanley Martin of Nassau
Village, cost him $800 in the magistrate's court yesterday for undertaking it without a
Ministry of Works building permit. The photograph was taken on October 26. According
to evidence in court yesterday the building is almost finished but without a permit.

Rev. Stanley Martin fined $800 or


4 months for building without permit
THE REV. STANLEY MARTIN of Naau Village was found guilty Thursday and fined S800 or
four months in prison for erecting a wooden dwelling house at Nassau Village without having a


valid building permit.
Martin, who pleaded not
guilty to the charge on
November 24, changed his plea
to guilty yesterday.
Insp. D. B. Mason, senior
enforcement officer of
buildings for the Ministry oof
Works, told Magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay that the
Ministry issued an order on
October 19 for Martin to stop
work on the building and to
report to the Ministry within
24 hours. Insp. Mason said he
failed to do so.
On October 26 the Ministry
had a photograph taken of
Martin's building under
construction. Another
photograph, taken on
Wednesday the day before the
court hearing, showed the
building in a state of near
completion.
Magistrate Osadebay warned
Martin that he would be in
further trouble if he continued
the building and advised him to
contact the Ministry before he
did any more on it.
Under section 4 of the
Building Regulations Act,
1971, no building can be
"commenced or carried on"
without a building permit. Any
person who does "shall be
guilty of an offence and liable
upon summary conviction to a
fine not exceeding one
thousand dollars or to
imprisonment for term not
exceeding six months or to
both such fine and
imprisonment."
Under the 1971 Act
"building operation" includes
"the erection of any building;
the carrying out of any
structural alteration or
extension to any building; the

DEAR ABBY: I am a 70-year-old man and recently lost
my wife after 40 years of a happy marriage. My loss was
almost unbearable at first, but I faced reality and tried to
live again.
My problem is this: I have proposed marriage to four
widows, all near my age. They are receptive to a point, but
all say there is no need for sex at our ages.
I am a healthy man and had a good sex life with my
wife until she died, so why should I be expected to forget
about sex now?
What should I tell these ladies when they turn me down
on this important part of life? I say sex is healthy and
normal and adds to a happy marriage. Please advise me.
"I, a[F A F-4SE


Quit proposing and


DEAR NAMELESS: Perhaps these ladies have turned
you down because you appear to be preoccupied with sex.
You say you "recently" lost yeur wife. Yet you have al-
ready proposed to four widows. Cool It. Surely there must
be an eligible widow who will see things your way. But
don't rush her.
DEAR ABBY: I am a teen-aged girl who has hairy
legs. I don't see anything wrong with it because it is natu-
ral. My mother and older sisters say it looks ugly and if I
don't shave my legs I will be the butt of guys' jokes, and
besides it is not considered good grooming for a girl to go
around with hair on her legs.
I don't see why society should dictate whether I should
have hair on my legs. I think this is strictly a matter of my
own choice.
What do you think? NATURALLY HAIRY
DEAR HAIRY: It's your hair, your legs and your
choice. If you choose to keep the hair on your legs, you will
soon find out to whom it matters, and to whom it matters
not. Since you like the natural look, I suggest you keep it.

biggest. most stupid mistake of my life. I tried to steal a

Rupert and the Beanstalk-57


Rex looks so unhappy
wedged in the forked branch,
and he gasps in relief on see-
ing Rupert. However did
you manage to get fixed up
there?" asks the little bear.
"It was an accident," wails
Rex. "I was walking past
here on my stilts when I lost
my balance, and the branch


caught me as I fell. I've been
hanging here for ages."
Rupert seizes one of the stilts
and, hooking the foot-rest
over the branch, he tugs as
hard as he can, bringing Rex
low enough to step on to the
ground and free himself.
"Whew I I'm glad that's
over," he says.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Look to that intelligent
associate for cooperation on some big project you have in
mind. Getting into civic work is your cup of tea right now.
Add much to your public image
PISCES (Feb 20 to Mar. 20) You are able to get into the
duties ahead of you and get them completed in record time, so
get an early start on them. You are at the peak of your
efficiency now. Taking health treatments in p m is wise.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
one of those young people who thinks big and can get big. Be
sure to provide for a good education early so that the success
possible here can be realized more easily. There is much
personal attractiveness here which can be very helpful.
Anything connected with the public, the masses, is fine here,
since there is great scope to this mind, which literally roams
the universe. Religion is important early, too.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

BOSTON RED SOX SIGN

SLUGGER ORLANDO CEPEDA


BOSTON, Jan. 18 (AP)- The
Boston Red Sox, a prime opponent
of the American League's newly
adopted designated pinch-hitter
rule, made a move to capitalize on
the revolutionary change Thursday
by signing veteran slugger Orlando
Cepeda as a free agent.
The Red Sox said the 35-year old
Cepeda would be given a shot at
winning the regular first base job,
but it appeared obvious the club
was more intent on keeping pace
with AL rivals, such as Detroit,
with aging personnel made to order
for the new rule.
Cepeda, a star for 13 National
League seasons with the San
Francisco Giants, St. Louis
Cardinals and the Atlanta Braves,
was acquired by the Oakland
Athletics in a deal for controversial
pitcher Denny McLain last summer.
He went to bat only three times
for the A's before undergoing left
knee surgery. He was released by
the World Series champions last
fall, and his career appeared in
jeopardy until the American League
adopted the so-called DPH rule last
week.
The Red Sox, who had balked at
trying to get Cepeda when he was


available in 1972 because of his
knee problem, went after him as
soon as the rule was adopted in
major league hasehall's first
startling change in 50 years.
