QUESTIONS have been
raised in the House concerning
the Ministry of Development's
possible association with a
separate advertising iirm when
government already has such
contractual arrangements.
Addressing the queries to
Finance and Development
Minister Carlton Francis. I \M
Leader Kendal Isaacs asked if
the Ministry had entered into a
separate contract with an
American advertising firm foi
the purpose of promoting
industry in the Bahamas.
Secondly, he wants to know
why this separate advertising
contract was thought necessary
since the government ahead)
has a contract for advertising
and public relations with
competent firms.
Mr. Isaacs also asked foi the
name of the firm with whom
the new contract had been
entered into, and tin-
anticipated expenditure
involved.
NEWSLETTER
First disclosure ol the
alleged contract came in the
February 2 issue ol the
Darragh Newsletter.
The publication claimed that
the agreement had been signed
with Lando-Bishopric, Inc.
"Miami's largest advertising
agency" to handle industrial
development promotion for
the Bahamas.
/Wording to the Darragh,
letter the agency has been
gearing up for about a month
and the promotion should be
launched before long "
Darragh pointed out In s
brief summary of industrial
development here, that in 1968
the government hired the firm
of Clapp and Mayne, Inc., as its
economic advisers
I he Puerto-Rico-baaed firm
was credited with setting up
that island's Operation
Bootstrap.
The company completed
a "Manpower Utilization
Survey" which was published
in March 1969. It revealed that
31 per cent oi all employed
workers in the Bahamas were
expatriates and that growth
projected for the Bahamian
economy would require 15.400
more foreign workers to be
brought in by 1973.
Darragh then quoted a
Statement made in the Senate
in December by former PLP
Cabinet Minister Arthur
Toulkes, who claimed thai as a
direct result of the ( lapp and
Mayne report the government
decided to "slow down
development."
The government presently
retains the Interpublic Group
of Companies to handle its
advertising and public relations
requirements.

into negotiations with Nassau
Towing with a view to
establishing reliable tug service
m Nassau Harbour.
"During the course of the
negotiations government was
assim-d that each tug would
have a capacity of 1,500 h.p.
plus 30 per cent and that each
of such tugs would be able to
handle the largest vessels which
can enter Nassau harbour."
Continued the Minister:
"The government then
contracted with Nassau Towing
to provide reliable tug service
in Nassau harbour. It was later
discovered that contrary to the
representations made by
Nassau Towing, the tugs did
not have the power specified in
the contract and in particular
that several and not one tug are
required to handle large ships
in Nassau Harbour, thus
increasing the cost of towing."
Mr Rolle said the
government then decided to
renegotiate the contract
"This remains the
government's position and
every effort will continue to be
made to ensure that a
satisfactory settlement is
reached as soon as possible."
Yesterday's statement by
Minister Rolle appeared
considerably at variance with
one made by Finance Minister
Carlton Francis two years ago
when other questions were put
to him in the House concerning
the losses being incurred by the
! In id re and Marguerite.
On December 18, 1970 Mr
Francis attributed the decline
in tug earnings to the fact that
Nassau Towing did not have a
monopoly on harbour
shipping.
"Although we gave the
contract to them we didn't give
them a monopoly because of
the other tug company
( Bahamas Towing).
If we had given Nassau
Towing the monopoly, it
would be earning nearly all the
revenue."
ALL BAHAMIANS
Since, however, the
government insisted it would
work "in the interest of all
Bahamians" and Bahamas
lowing was a Bahamian
company, it had ruled out the
idea of a monopoly.
In addition the shipping
agents who were responsible
for getting the tugs were more
in sympathy with the old
company "and that's the way
the jobs go," said Mr. Francis
I he Tribune disclosed on
October 4, 1969 that the
government was at that time
trying to renegotiate the tug
contract.
On December 19 of that
year former PLP Transport
Minister Warren Levanty, fired
three months earlier by the
Prime Minister, claimed in the
House that he had "forced"
Nassau Towing to renegotiate
the contract with government
lie did not know, however,
whether his successor, Dr.
Dons Johnson was continuing
the negotiations.
A year later, during the
December Budget debate, Mr
Levanty called on Dr Johnson
to resign because of the
"complete incompetence and
improper procedure" she
displayed in her handling of
the contract between
government and the tug boat
owners
He told the House that when
he had been dismissed the
government was in a position
to negotiate the purchase of
the tugs But Dr. Johnson's
action after taking over the
Ministry, he said, had
destroyed their bargaining
position and committed the
country to the expenditure of
millions of dollars

Hotel Employers reject 5.8p.c. union
wages demand to match cost of living
By MIKE LOTHIAN
- THE BAHAMAS HOTEL EMPLOYERS ASSOCIATION today rejected a union demand for a
5.8 percent wage rise to match the 1972 cost of living increase, claiming that the existing two-year
work contract cannot be amended
A letter signed by
Association executive director
Trevelyan Cooper was
delivered today to Mr. Bobby
Glinton, general secretary of
the Bahamas Hotel and
Catering Workers' Union
"Your letter dated February
9, 1973, in which you
demand' an increase of 5.8
percent in wages 'across the
board' was submitted to my
executive committee at their
meeting yesterday," Mr.
Cooper wrote.
"I am asked to remind you
that the agreement which was
freely entered into and signed
on behalf of this Association
and your Union on January 6,
1972 clearly provided that it
would remain in force for a
period of two years from the
date of the signing of the
agreement, which means that it
continues in operation
without alteration until Jan.
6, 1974, except for those
sections which will be affected
by the introduction of the
National Insurance scheme
later this year.
"My executive furthermore
wish to draw your attention to

"As you felt obliged to
publish your letter of Feb. 9 in
the press, I am sending a copy
of this reply to the Nassau
Guardian and The Tribune,"
Mr. Cooper concluded
A copy of the letter was sent
also to Labour Minister
Clifford Darling.
The work contract referred
to by Mr. Cooper contains only
one section relating to
amendment
"Either party to this
agreement desiring to amend or
terminate the same shall, not
later than 90 days prior to the
expiration date of the said
contract, give notice of their
purpose and intent in writing
and at the same time shall
submit all necessary details of
the new proposals they desire
to be considered."
On Feb. 9 Mr. Glinton wrote
to the Association to make "a
formal demand for a 5.8
percent increase across the
board." because "Government
figures show a 5.8 percent
increase over the past
12-month period" in the cost
of living.
URGENT. Ml I MNt,
The letter said "an urgent
meeting with the Association
would be greatly appreciated
to further discuss this very
important matter."
Union spokesmen cont.u ted
The Tribune today after
receiving Mr Cooper's letter,
and said "we aren't trying to
amend the structure of the
contract. The salaries In tin-
contract are the minimum
wages, and actual salaries can
be increased by the employer

agreement or the Industrial
Relations Act prohibits this
"We are going to write bat I
to the Association and we are
hoping we will finally get this
5.8 per cent increase." the
spokesmen said
They added that "another
angle" to their demand is that
they anticipate further
increases in the cost of living
for the worker with the
introduction of National
Insurance, and "other things"
such as revised tariffs on
imports, after Independence
Day. July 10.
The spokesman said the
union is calling an "emergency
meeting of all workers" at 8
p.m. next Thursday at Taxico

Mr. Donaldson said that
following the 10 per cent
devaluation of the U.S. dollar
on Tuesday, February 13, the
government, following
isultation with the
Monetary Authority, decided
to realign its currency so that
the Bahamian dollar would be
on a one-for-one basis with the
U.S. dollar
"In making the decision to
return to parity with the
United States dollar, the
government made a careful
review of the position of the
Bahamian dollar in the
international monetary system,
and its economic and financial
relationship to the United
States.
"Its decision was taken with
particular reference to the cost
of living, the balance of
payments and overall economic
growth of the country," the
Authority chairman said.
In practical terms, Mr.
Donaldson added, "this
decision should have a
hvotmbte effect on national
income and the flow of capital
into the country. The earners
of U.i. dollars will now find
that they will receive one
Bahamian dollar for each U.S.
dollar."
Hie Tribune understands
that the Monetary Authority
reached its decision Wednesday
morning and made its
recommendation to Finance
Minister Carlton Francis who
then took it to Cabinet

HANOI HILTON' DESCRIBED
Commission visitor
viewsPOWprison as
pretty grim'hell hole'
By Edilh Lederer
SAIGON (AP) The "Hnoi Hilton" where American wir
prisoners are beginning lo check out is shabby cily jail
nicknamed "hell hole" by Ihe Vietnamese themselves
A member of the
International Commission for
Control and Supervision who
was in Hanoi 15 years ago and
loured the facility Monday
described the prison conditions
as "pretty grim."
It is. he said Wednesday, a
hlock-square city jail in the
heart of Hanoi that was
constructed by the F.ench
sometime after World War II
during the days when Vietnam
was their colony.
The jail has generated wide
interest among Americans who
wondered where and in what
their loved ones were
imprisoned. U.S. pilots, some
of whom ended up there,
baptised it the Hanoi Hilton.
The returning Control
Commission member outlined
what he saw during his tour on
condition neither his name nor
his nationality be disclosed.
He said the prison is called
"lloa Lo," slang that translates
to the "hell hole." But even
Hanoi Radio picked up the
name Hanoi Hilton and used it
in its broadcasts on the
prisoners and U.S. bombing.
"To an American arriving
from the States it would be a
hell of a place," he added. "So
I think you would have to say
that the conditions were pretty
grim for those men. But on the
other hand, they were no
worse than the conditions
under which most Vietnamese
live, except the confinement."
Touring Commission
members, in Hanoi for the first
prisoner release, walked
through a gate in high walls
into an area with two
courtyards. Off one were three
large sleeping rooms, each
about 30 by 55 feet, he said.
"One of the questions, that
was asked was why all the
plaster was out of the ceiling in
one of the big rooms," he
added. "They said a bomb had
fallen about 150 yards away
trom us and that's why the
plaster fell out of the ceiling."
KISSINGER MEETS
CHOU EN LAI
WASHINGTON (AP)
Presidential envoy
Henry A. Kissinger launched
his latest Peking mission
Thursday with a three and a
half hour meeting with Premier
C'hou en Lai.
The White House announced
the session after receiving a
brief teletype report from
Kissinger who is Nixon's
assistant for national security
affairs.
The session began shortly
after Kissinger and his party
arrived in Peking. Because of
time zone changes, the
conference actually took place
late Thursday night, Peking
time.
Among other Chinese
officials participating were
Foreign Minister Chi P'eng-Fei
and vice foreign minister Chiao
Kuan Hua.
Accompanying Kissinger
were Alfred Jenkins, a state
department Asian specialist,
and John Holdridge of the
National Security Council
staff.

He said the North
Vietnamese told them each
room would accommodate
about 30 men. One room had a
raised platform in the middle
"Which was wide enough for
two men to sleep sort of end to
end so that the men slept in
two rows along this raised
platform."
A second room of the same
size had a similar cement floor
but a different arrangement
"Sleeping platforms were
along the two walls and the
sort of depression, alleyway,
was in the middle," the
commission member reported
On the raised platforms
there were "wooden pallets
which were three or four feet
wide, and there was a thin
straw mat on top of each one."
Toilet facilities, he said,
were "just sort of a hole in the
floor that you squat over and
some of them had just a
honeybucket underneath
which had to be emptied by
hand the original toilet
facilities of 1920 and old
France."
"There was a sort of shower
arrangement where there were
three sort of brackets coming
out of the wall and they said
they simply brought hoses in
and hung them over these
brackets and that's where the
showers were."
"The kitchen was in the
main courtyard," he said. "It
had a roof on it and there were
sort of sides around it, but it
was sort of open in between
and there were cooking pots
and cauldrons and we saw
mugs and enameled bowls.
"In the countryards they
were sort of primitive there
were volleyball nets and
basketball hoops and checkers
and sets of chess and cards and
things."
There also was a 35-bed
infirmary, he said.
During Monday's tour, the
Commission member said he
and his companions did not see
any Americans, "but we were
told by the North Vietnamese
that there were others there ....
we were just shown the part of
the prison from which the
prisoners had been released,
which is required under the
protocol."
The tour was made by
representatives of all four
members of the International
Commission the Poles,
Hungarians, Indonesians and
Canadians.
The cease-fire protocol
requires that Commission
members be allowed to see the
place of the released prisoners'
last confinement. The
Commission member said no
one disputed that the
Americans had been there, but
added there was no way to tell
how long they had spent in the
toured area.

The ministers were also said to

S NOT AS GOOD AS GOLD
LONDON (AP) Prime Minister
Kdward Heath warned American
businessmen Monday that the IS.
dollar is no longer as good as gold
or able to finance world trade
adequately as a reserve currency.
Heath told an American chamber
of commerce meeting here: "I do
not believe that any one country
can now carry the risks and burdens
of having its currency used as a
major international reserve asset."
The Bretton Woods system
which has defined world monetary
and trade relations since World War
II "predicated a dollar which was as
good as gold". Heath said.
Today, he went on, "the strength
of the American economy, though
still very great, is no longer willing
to hold dollars without question
and in unlimited amounts. Some
may regret that this is to, But ii is
useless to pine forthe past."
Heath said the dollar devaluation
Monday underscored the urgency
for reforming the wfeoU
international monetary system.
YEN WILL FLOAT
UNTIL APRIL I
TOKYO (AP) The Japanese
government and the Bank of Japan
plan to reestablish a fixed exchange
rate for the yen in April, Kyodo
news service said Thursday, quoting
informed sources.
Kyodo quoted the sources as
saying this was partly because
Prime Minister Kakuei Tanaka's
government must secure Parliament
approval of the budget for the new
fiscal year which begins April I.
The government, sources said,
also expects the imbalance in
Japan's foreign trade to be
corrected to a "certain extent" by
then due to a seasonal increase in
imports in iebruary and March.
Sources also said the government
believes expansion of imports will
lead to an increase in dollar
purchases on the Tokyo foreign
exchange market.
Kyodo said the sources believe
the government wants to revalue
the yen less than 15 per cent so
that the new rate can be maintained
at a level of 267 yen to one dollar.
But, they noted, the United
States and Kuropean countries .ir.
demanding a 20 per cent yen
revaluation.
Moreover. Kyodo quoted the
sources as saying, the exchange rate
of the dollar on the foreign
exchange market is falling, giving
little hope of correcting Japan's
foreign trade imbalance in the near
future.
Under such circumstances, (hey

WORSENING iDUSTRIAL TURMOIL IN U.K.
Heath meets TTJC, but may
call a snap general election
By ARTHUR L. Gavshon
LONDON (AP)-Prime Minister Edward Healh Wednesday thrust the possibility of a sudden
election before Britain after failing to rally militant libour unions behind his programme for
curbing pay. prices and strikes.

his Conservative government
"will lake all Ihe actions that

emergency powers if a

As 47.000 gasworkers began

stoppages to back up pay
claims tli.it WOllM breach the
government's counter-inflation
strategy Heath made two
surprise moves:
He Munitioned the
general council of the giant
Iriil,, Union Congress (TUC)
representing ten million
workers to discuss the nation's
economic plight. After the
two-hour meeting he and TUC
general escretary Vk Peathei
traded thinly-veiled accusations
of inflexibility.
He arranged a news
filler, nu- at short notice that
gave him the chance of
addressing Ihe nation directly
with his government*! side of
the story. And the tones in
which he spoke left most of his
listeners with the impression
that he has scented a national
election in the air. At one
point he sidestepped the
chance to repeat his own
month-old forecast that there
will be no national ballot in
1973.
Heath's Conservatives were
elected June 1970 for a
five-year term ousting the

DISSATISFACTION
In a House of Commons of
630 members the Conservatives
have an overall margin of 27
but some of Heath's own
followers have displayed
dissatisfaction with aspects of
Ins poHciea including the
counter-inflation programmes.
In carefully-chosen terms
Heath told Britons:
- Any exceptions to the
state's pay-curb policy would
bring about 'its total
disintegration.'
If there is widespread
industrial action. meaning
strikes it "can do nothing but
damage" to the workers,
industry. Ihe whole nation.
Already his governemnt
has sought to meet the TUC's
key damands for economic
expansion, social welfare
benefits, less tax. Feather told
newsmen after meeting Heath
the Prime Minister had made
no new proposal and had not
sought TUC help to resolve the
gas dispute.

called a special delegate

the second emergency congress

union negotiating rights.'
Heath's government right
now is in the midst of Melting
parliamentary sanction for its
counter-inflation programme.
Thus the stage seems set for
a head-on confrontation
between the Conservatives and
the Labour unions with the
likelihood that if the encounter
becomes too turbulent Heath
will seek a new mandate in a
swift national election.

EDITORIAL
Discrimination in reverse?
By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN THIS column on Monday, January 29th I wrote an article
in which I gloried in the rapid strides the Negro was making in the
U.S.
This article brought me two brickbats in the form of letters to
the Editor strongly disagreeing with my observations.
One of these letters was written by "An American in the
Bahamas" and appeared under the heading "Black American
Resents Comments of Editor".
The other letter appeared under the heading "Psychologist
Writes on Race Relations" and was signed by Philip Carey, Social
Psychologist, and Vernon E. Jordan, Jr. Both Carey and Jordan
are Bahamian names and so I presume these two men are
Bahamians.
These letters were published on February 9th along with
another article by me emphasizing the great strides made by
Negroes in the U.S. in recent years and the steady lowering of
racial barriers all over the nation.
We arc painfully aware in the Bahamas that discrimination has
gone into reverse in the islands.
This is true of the entire Caribbean, Africa and wherever the
Negro is in the majority today. In Africa the European and the
Indian are being unceremoniously pitch-forked out of the Dark
Continent.
In the Bahamas and certain other areas the same result is being
achieved by the use of more subtle methods.-
But no one who has not had the experience would suspect
that, in certain areas, discrimination has gone into reverse in the
U.S. where, in some cases, white people feel that they are being
discriminated against to make openings for Negroes with lesser
qualifications.
A Los Angeles Times Service article by Philip Hager appeared
in The Miami Herald on February 10th under the caption:
"Qualified Student Files Suit .... Says Law School Prefers
Minorities".
Datelined Seattle, the article reads in part:
"From all appearances, Marco Dc Funis had it made.
"Born, raised and educated in Washington, hardworking and
aggressive, a Phi Beta Kappa, magna cum laudc university
graduate with high aptitude scores, he seemed assured of
admission when he applied three years ago to the University of
Washington Law School.
"But he was rejected then and in I97l when lie applied again.
"To find out why and to gain admission, De Funis consulted
an attorney and then brought a lawsuit that since has drawn
nationwide interest among law-school official and civil rights
organizations.
"De Funis, a white, contended he had been denied admission
that some 38 students of minority races, less academically
qualified than he was, had been admitted.
"The lawsuit raised a sensitive issue. Are white students bei
discriminated against in favour of less-qualified minorities?"
What minorities are being given preferential consideration over
white students in the U.S.?
Certainly Negroes are high up on the list.
"The university denied discrimination." Hager reports in his
article. "It defended its special minority admissions programme
and cited a need for minority lawyers, pointing to a 1968 study
that 30.000 black lawyers were needed then to serve the black
community."
Further in his article he states that "surveys show that 5,195
minority students black, Mexican-American, Indian. Asian and
others were enrolled in U.S. law schools last year, making up
about seven percent of the full-time enrolment of accredited
schools. The number was nearly double the figure of two years
ago."
9900000000
This is the kind of preferential treatment being given to
Negroes and other minorities in almost every department of life
in the nation today.
But despite this fact the "American Woman in the Bihamis"
declared in her letter in The Tribune that "we black Americans
don't want white people to love us. marry us or be brothers to us.
All we want is to be respected as fellow human beings and
GIVEN equal everything! If and when that ever comes to pass,
perhaps in another 300 years from then, we black folks can begin
to think about forgiving and forgetting."
It is difficult to understand how anyone reared in a Christian
society .... and with evidence of goodwill being displayed on all
sides .... can continue to embitter her own life with such
deep-seated hatreds.
It is unfortunate that her sister should have had an unpleasant
experience when she moved into a white neighbourhood. But the
very fact that she could move into a white neighbourhood is
evidence of progress. Not so very long ago this would have been
impossible. Now that she is "in" she can be a missionary for the
cause by showing her white neighbours how to live decently. In a
great many cases of this kind white people learn through a
contact of this kind that there arc black families who follow a
higher moral code than they do. And then they are ashamed of
themselves and try to do better.
I think I found an explanation for the narrow, bitter view
taken by the letter writer to Tlte Tribune in an interview I heard
on TV Channel 4 this morning.
I am writing this article on a Sunday morning. Just before my
wife and I left the hotel to attend Mass I turned on the TV. We
were waiting for a taxi and this was a good way to pass ten
minutes.
We got into the middle of the interview and had to leave before
it was finished. And so we did not know ihe name of the
programme nor the names of the man conducting the interview or

the man who was being interviewed
I Ins was not necessary. What they said in the lew minutes I
listened was important.
The interview was being conducted by a coloured man. This
meant he was on the stall of the station.
Tlte man being interviewed was black. I gathered from the
conversation that he had been successful in his field of enterprise
Asked whether it was difficult for black people to get certain
jobs today, the black man replied that it was now fashionable lo
have black people around
lie spoke of having been in a certain skyscraper in New York
where he found that blacks were "very visible" on certain floors
in the building.
Then he added that if he had not travelled he would not have
discovered that everybody wants something. Ever) group feels
that it is being held back.
"But the man who gels elected." he observed, "is the man who
offends the least number of people."
He might have put llus last observation another way.
It would have been equally true had lie said that the man who
is elected is very often the one who is able lo fool the largest
number of people most of the time.
I Ins is certainly the case in the Bahamas today.

You can fool all the people some of the time, and some ol the

THE TRIBUNE MOTORING PAGE
The Jaguar XJ6--speed
with style and safety
THE FINEST VEHICLE IN NASSAU MOTORS' STABLE of fine cars is the Jaguar XJ6, a car
which took four years to design and develop, a car which is proving to be a very popular item in
Vlss.UI


.
Throughout the
doL'Iopment of the X16,
Jaguar had one concept in
mind "To design a saloon car
soiling new standards of
comfort and luxyry.
road-holding and ride, steering
and braking, performance and
safely all in one car with a
level of outstanding value that
Jjjiiur traditionally made their
own".
This wjs d lall order but
with the XJ6. Jaguar has filled
it
The XJ6 is obviously a Jag.
The lines still curve. They are
slill clean and uncluttered. The
rtu door slill makes its
"butterfy wing." The family
resemblance is obvious, but
equally obvious is the fact that
H is new Jaguar
The profile is lower by
several inches than its
predccessors from end to end.
The boot slides away in a very
shallow curve to a sharp, clean
Cttt-back. The track is wide, the
tirei ire wide and the centre of
gravity is low which combine
to give the XJ6 the sure
footcdness of a racing car.
The car's grille, which was
once oval and always taller
than wide, is now wider than
tall I he window pillars can be
slim and graceful because they
don't need to take much strain,
so strong is the car's
foundation. This gives more
light in the interior making the
car look as spacious as it is.
SMOOTH RID1
The XJ6 gives a smooth ride
and excellent road-holding
because of many factors
including the wide track and
the low profile tires. The
suspension is "suspended". It is
independent on all four wheels
and the assemblies have rubber
mountings which give an
exactly calculated degree of
movement. These mountings
minimixe road noises and
vibration before they have a
chance to reach the passenger
compartment
The Jaguar engine had been
described by Motor magazine
as "probably the most famous
engine ever produced by the
British motor industry". It is a
development of Jaguar's
race-proven twin overhead
camshaft engine of which over
250,000 have been built and
which is renowned for its
consistency of performance,
smoothness and quietness.
The 2.8 is an in-line, six
cylinder power unit with a
compression ratio of 8.5 to I.
The 4.2 litre engine is also an
in-line six with a compression
ratio of 8 to I.
Along with all the luxury
and power. Jaguar's XJ(> is the
safest car the firm has ever
produced. It is also one of the
safest cars in the world With
Jaguar's extensive racing
'iind, it stands to reason
that safety has always been a
by-word.
The XJ6 has servo-assisted
disc brakes on all four wheels
with separate hydraulic
circuists to the front and rear
wheels. The rack and pinion
steering gives the utmost
precision. The fuel lines are
located in the car in such a way
as to reduce rupture. Itie door
locks are burst-proof on all
four doors and the rear doors
have child-proof safely catcher
II. VIIIRI S
The finish on metal treat
likely to cause dazzle by
reflection is matt. Those are
just a few of the 30 or so
safety features which put the
XJ6 at the lop of the class.
The car's instrument panel
contains a full set of switches
and instruments all of which
are clearly marked. The
switches are grouped together
in a related sequence and their
functions are picked out at
night by an illuminated
indicator strip.
Under the panel is a map
tray, and stretching below is a
console containing the controls
for the heating and ventilating
system. The radio, which is
optional, is mounted just above
these controls.
The Jaguar XJ6 is not an
ordinary car It doesn't attract
ordinary people. It is the car
for the discerning motorist. See
it at Nassau Motors on Shirley
Street

AS EXTRA COST OPTION
DETROIT MotOfl "tiiiJ this week it will offer
air bag safely system* as an extra

GM disclosed it* intentions at a
seminar for newsmen at which it
showed some of its new ideas in the
field of emissions and OlbM
automotive related fields.
It KJve no indication of the cost
of the new system.
A federal safety standard
originally called for mandatory tir
bag systems in 1976 model*, hut
the timetable was delayed a year by
a federal appeals court after the
auto industry said it could not meet
it for all cars.
GM suul, "just this past week, we
produced the last of our 1.000
Chevrolet* equipped with air
CIMhiOM for public and private fleet
testing on everyday roads and
driving conditions."
Going on to explain that the air
bag system would be an option on
some of its '74 lines, GM said,
"assuming that our combined
development and experience is
favourable, in order to gain
production experience, GM is
planning to offer the air bag as an
Mtfl cost option" in 1974.
It added, "also, there will be a
lap belt option available for those
who would like to use both types
of restraints,"
GM's disclosure apparently
meant it will be the first U.S. .into
firm to offer the air bags
commercially. All the auto firms
nave been experimenting with
them, but none of the air bag
systems has been sold to the public
yet.
The air bag system contains
equipment which would expand
automatically in event of crash
conditions, wrapping a protective
coat around the driver and front
yjf passengers to minimize injury.

Now there's a new Maxi on the road you may

Well, after a lot of thought and hard work, we found
we really couldn't improve on it.
Apart from a few little things. Like a new grille, new

clean up the lines a lot.
And that's all we could do.
Because if we'd changed the shape we'd have made

And that would have made it less of a Maxi.

SALUTE TO-DANISH WEEK SUPPLEMENT
Message of Welcome from Danish Consul
Greta Lady Oakes
ON BEHALF OF THE
PEOPLE of The Bahamas it is
a pleasure to extend a warm
welcome to Captain Hansen.
his officers anil cadets aboard
the training ship Danmark.
We know they will find
their visit to Nassau one of the
highlights of their trip and
fond memories of the
hospitality of the Bahamian
people will go with them back
to Denmark.
I would like to extend an
invitation to all Bahamians to
participate in this salute to
Danish Week in the Bahamas
by experiencing the taste of
good Danish food and share in
our enthusiasm for eating by
"eat Danish, eat well".
IT'S DANISH WEEK
FEBRUARY 15-21, the accent will be on
Denmark as the Bahamas observes Danish Week
again. Focal point of the week-long celebration will
be the visit to Nassau by the Danish training ship
Danmark which will be docked at the Prince
George Wharf from February 16th to 20th.
Sponsored by the Consulate General of
Denmark, New York and the Danish Agricultural
Marketing Board in Puerto Rico, Danish Week will
see festive displays in supermarkets and Bay Street
stores as well as activities related to and around the
training ship Danmark. Open house on the
Danmark will be Sunday afternoon from 2 p.m. to
4:30 and the public is invited.
Danish Week points up the fact that the
Bahamas has for many years been a very big
customer for Danish agricultural products. Eight
years ago the Danish Agricultural Marketing Board
opened its office for the Caribbean in San Juan.
Puerto Rico, to promote the sales of Danish
products and stimulate the general interest for
Danish food in the area.
The total Danish export to the Bahamas has
increased in recent years, with a total of
approximately $2.1 million in 1971 from which
$1.7 million was agricultural products.
Leading wholesalers of Danish food here in
the Bahamas are: Ronald A. Albury, Island
Wholesale, Asa H. Pritchard, Super Value
Foodstore, Bahamas Blenders, d'Albenas Agency,
Quality Markets. Stanley V. S. Albury, Abco,
Carroll's Liquor Store, New Standard Grocery,
Nassau Hotel & Restaurant Supplies.

BAHAMAS
DANISH AGRICULTURE IS WORLD RENOWNED
ALTHOUGH DENMARK is
only a small country, less than
S million population, it is the
world's largest exporter of
pork, the second largest
exporter of butter, the third
largest exporter of cheese. It is
also a large exporter of canned
meats, oven-ready poultry,
beef and other farm products.
Only 8% of Denmark's
working population are in
farming, but they produce
animal food products sufficient
to meet the needs of
15,000,000 people the
population of New York and
Tokyo combined. Two-thirds
of what Danish farmers
produce are exported to 140
countries in every part of the
world. This is possible because
the products are of the highest
quality, and only foodstuffs
that are sound, hygienically
and in'every other way, are
able to meet the requirements
of the controls that apply to
Danish processing units.
The ever-increasing supplies
of corn in the world market in
the second half of the last
century caused Denmark to
move out of corn exporting
and move into the processing
of animal products, such as
butter, milk, cheese, bacon,
etc. This production is largely
concerned with exports and,
because of the uniformity and
the high quality of the
products, Danish farmers
achieve a higher price on
export products than their
fellow farmers in the majority

of other countries. 90% of the
Danish farmers' total income is
from animal products.
The direct sale of corn and
other plant crops amounts only
to 10% of the total income.
The rest of the very
considerable production of
arable crops is fed to the
animals to produce the raw
material for export products.
CATTLE have a very
important place in the Danish
agricultural economy.
Denmark is known all over the
world for its dairy products,
and there are today about
1,100,000 milking cows in
Denmark. The Red Danish
Dairy breed (RDM) and the
Black and White Dairy breed
(SDM) make respectively 40%
and 34% of the whole. Both
these breeds are dual-purpose,
markedly suitable both for
milk and meat production. The
third most important breed is
the Jersey (18%).
In recent years some beef
breeds Herefords and
Charolais have been
introduced, but they account
for no more than one per cent
of the total cattle. Crossbred
stock and a few other breeds
are about 7% of the whole.
MILK is collected by special
'milk tankers' which take it to
the new and large dairies to be
processed into butter, cheese
or other special dairy products.
Denmark is the world's second
largest exporter of butter, with
the United Kingdom as the
biggest customer, and the third
largest exporter of cheese, with
West Germany as the biggest
customer.
PIGS have been in recent
years the section with the
highest production in Danish
agriculture. They are fed
chiefly on barley which is, of
course, home produced. Today
there are between 8,000,000
and 9,000,000 pigs in
Denmark. All are the standard
breed, Danish Landrace, which
have been bred particularly to
produce only first class bacon
Denmark is the biggest
exporter of pigs in the world
with the United Kingdom
the biggest customer as the
world's great bacon-eating
country
BACON is exported to the
U.K. in refrigerated containers,
direct from the bacon factory
in Denmark to the first-hand
buyer in the U.K., untouched
by anyone. The high quality of
Danish bacon realises a highei
price than any other bacon on
the international market.
Denmark produces about
3,500,000 mink pelts a year
from some 5,500 mink
breeders. It is among the three
largest mink producing
countries in the world. There
are also chinchilla and blue fox
producers. Five times a year
the world's most distinguished
fur auction is held in
Copenhagen Between 90 and
95% of Denmark's production
of furs are exported.

effort is spared to please the
eye as well as the palate. Even
the simplest dish is artfully
adorned and served as though
il were "champagne and
caviar". The Danes create a
happy, intimate atmosphere
for their guests soft,
gleaming candle lights, shining
silverware and bowls of freshly
cut, gracefully arranged
flowers.
"First flowers, then food on
the table", is an old Danish
proverb. Denmark has as many
flower shops as there are drug
stores in the United Statei and
the Danish home is filled with
flowers in season.
The clever hostess chooses
her flowers for her table to
complement her main dish.
With a figurine or two of Royal
Copenhagen Porcelain to set
off her floral centrepiece, the
result is captivating.
SUGGESTIONS
One charming hostess I met
in Copenhagen gave me her
suggestions. With steak you
choose deep, red roses with
stems cut short, to float
gracefully in an old pewter
plate.
Fish caels for flowers as blue
as the sea. such as sweet peas
or cornflowers.
Lamb and chicken are a
reminder of Danish Spring and
inspire a floral motif of
daffodils, narcissi, muted with
budding sprigs.

topped with clusters of grapes,
with traders of red and gold
Virginia creeper between the
fruits and along the table.
The most popular form of
preparation and serving of food
is the Danish "Del kolde
Board" meaning The Cold
Table or the Smorgasbord.
In Denmark it has been
enjoyed for centuries, and as
early as the 17th century, with
tables laden with pickled
herring, meat and cheese ready
to welcome visitors to Danish
homes.
SMORGABORD
The Danish Smorgasbord, or
open face sandwich, is
Denmark's national dish and its
preparation a national art.
There arc hundreds of varieties
and each Smorgasbord is a
complete meal in itself. The
foundation for the open face
sandwiches are thin slices of
dark or white bread, lavishly
buttered. Then artistry and
imagination take ever in
arranging the slices on the
bread.
A traditional Smorgasbord
offers from ten to fifty
tempting dishes grouped in
their traditional order: herring
in up to a dozen varieties;
smoked salmon, cooked
shrimps, lobster, eel and other
fish dishes; different kinds of
tempting salads, cold cuts,
pork loin, liver paste, sausages,
the famous Danish ham, hot
dishes, and, of course, a large
assortment of cheese.
Three or four Smorgasbords
should be allowed per person -
the art being in the variety
offered. A foamy glass of
imported Danish beer such
as Carlsberg and Tuborg, and
iced Aalborg Aquavit are the
popular companions to a
Smorgasbord spread. The meal
is then completed with Danish
Pastry the real Danish one
without the concrete which
dominates so much of the
so-called Danish produced
outside Denmark and coffee,
with a glass of Cherry I leering
as the grand finale. Definitely
not a likely scene for the
diet-conscious.
The Danes help themselves
to one course at a time, and for
each selection they always use
a fresh plate. They wouldn't
dream of mixing fish and meat
on one plate, for instance.
I learned a great deal about
the Smorgasbord two years ago
when I visited the famous
Copenhagen Restaurant of
Oskar Davidsen, a specialist in
the making and serving of the
open face sandwich. The
memory of good eating and
warm hospitality lingers on and
I can't wait to return to
Copenhagen, brush up on the
culinary art of the
Smorgasbord and the
entertaining skills of the Danes.

DANISH FARMERS COOPERATE*
COOPERATIVES are a part of the way of life of Danish farmers, and practically every farmer in the land is in one way or another in
contact with the movement. An important economic and social factor, the cooperatives today control the greater part of Danish
agriculture's buying and selling.
I HE TRIBUNE DANISH WEEK SUPPLEMENT
THE VIKINGS
with delicious Da
have come to the island in ships loaded
nish food products.
The movement nad a decisive
influence on the
developments in Danish
agriculture over the last
century. In 1866 the first
Danish consumer
cooperative was opened, in
1882 came the first
cooperative dairy.
These were the first two steps
toward the establishment of
the huge sale and purchase
organization the cooperative
movement has since become.
Cooperative societies are
owned by members in the
this case the farmers and
thus the farmer sells his pigs
and milk through the
concern he owns, together
with his neighbour. He buys
his fertilizer, fodder,
machinery, etc., in the same
way.
The primary objective of the
cooperative movement is
quite simply to obtain the
best price for the product to
be sold, and to obtain the
best goods at the most
favourable price when
buying.
In the sales field there are
cooperatives for milk, pigs,
eggs, cattle and poultry, and
a characteristic for all is the
quality improvement this
has brought to meet
market demands. There are
buyer cooperatives for
fertilizer, fodder, machinery,
tractors, etc.
Another feature is the
consumer coop natives
where everyday household
goods can be bought.
The cooperatives do not have a
monopoly, although they
dominate some areas of
production 85 per cent of
Denmark's milk production
goes to cooperative dairies,
and 88 percent of prime
Danish bacon pigs are
processed at cooperative
bacon factories.
Cooperatives receive
respectively 50 and 40 per
cent of the total poultry and
egg production, and about
45 per cent of Danish

slaughter cattle reach the
market via cooperatives.
NOT MONOPOLY
Thus the cooperative
movement does not have a
monopoly, and
corresponding private firms
owned by individuals or
companies operate in all
sectors, so that farmers can
trade where they please.
But because of their size, the
cooperatives can offer
powerful, effective
competition to private
traders. Today there is
therefore no great difference

shopping paradise in the centre ot tha city, when visitors
from all over the world shop for famous Danish-made
merchandise.
WHEN MAKING gravy and it seems flat and tasteless,
peel an onion, wash well and steep in a cup of boiling water
for ten or fifteen minutes. Add the liquid to the gravy, and
it will take on a lovely brown colour and the flavour of the
onion.
IF YOUR CREAM refuses to whip, first chill it
thoroughly, then add a chilled egg white and whip again.
IF CHEESE becomes dry, try waking it in buttermilk
and it will return to normal.
COLD TEA makes an excellent house plant fertilizer
try it on your plants.

LURMARK
MEANS
QUALITY
THE LURMARK, the national
trademark of the Danish
dairy industry for butter,
cheese and other products
was introduced in 1906.
The Lurmark is to protect
consumers. It means that
they can be certain of
obtaining a uniform and fine
quality. No products that
fail to satisfy the State
Quality Control
requirements can use The
Lurmark and without The
Lurmark it cannot be
exported.
Hygiene and quality must leave
nothing to be desired. The
Lurmark guarantees that all
milk used in the production
of cheese and butter for
export comes from Danish
herds that are free from
tuberculosis and other
contagious diseases.
Moreover, all Danish dairies
are required by the
Government to test the milk
supplied by each individual
farmer at least once a week.
STRICT CONTROL
The bulk of the canned meat
industry's production is
exported, and as with other
sections of the Danish pig
industry, the production of
canned products is subject
to strict quality and hygiene
control. First of all, the raw
materials must be passed by
the factory, veterinary
surgeon and by the
Government health
inspectors.
The same control applies
throughout all stages in the
processing of the raw
materials. Quality control
does not end at that.
The Danish canned meat
factories have voluntarily
established a joint
organization for control of
the quality of the
production from all factories
on a uniform and neutral
basis.

The Danish art of
proposing a toast
By MARY A. KELLY
SKAL is the Danish word for "a Votre Sante" ... "Bottoms
Up" ... "Prosit" ... "Cheers" ... "Chin Chin" .... "Salud" ... or any
other salutation in proposing a toast.
SKAL is probably the only
Danish word found in all
languages and the same word
is used in the Swedish and
PLUMR0SE FOODS
(DENMARK'S FINEST)
Serving The
Bahamas For Over
30 Years.

Norwegian languages as well.
However, the Danish SKAL
might differ from greetings
in other languages in the
respect that the word SKAL
has actually got a meaning
not known to many
foreigners.
Way back in history the word
SKAL is supposed to have
originated from skalp. The
ancient Nordic Vikings at
that stage did not have
pretty glasses to drink from
and used the skalp of the
animals they brought home
from hunting. For at least
1,000 years it has been
SKAL as Denmark at that
stage reigned over the north
of Europe including parts of
what is now the UrJied
Kingdom.
When drinking for festive and
pompous occasions you
would raise your glass, look
the partner straight into the
eyes and say, "Let us drink
to Sandhed. Kaerlighed,
Alder and Loyalitet'" In
other words, the greeting
SKAL is an abbreviation
from ancient days of the
Danish words:
Sandhed.......Truth
Kaerlighed ....Love
Alder.........Age (a long life)
Loyalitet.....Loyalty
In Denmark you still have to
look your partner straight
into the eyes when you raise
your glass and say SKAL
and many traditions and
merry ballads and songs have
for centuries been built up
around SKAL Mostly this
has been in honour of the
Danish drink Akvavit, which
in many homes is still
enjoyed over the old rituals
and traditions with much
joy and laughter.

MRS HULL
r>
DEAR ABBY: I have been dating a very wealthy mar-
ried man (or the last three years. I was married when we
started seeing each other, but I got a divorce because he
said if I were "free" he would divorce his wife and marry
me.
He told me that he had not laid a hand on his wife for
five years, now all of a sudden she's pregnant! I He ex-
plained it by saying he had to give her something for their
last anniversary! 1
I am wondering now if I am foolish to wait for him? He
has children, and so have I. I quit work to be available to
see him during the day, but there are days 1 never see
him, and I am getting bored. He takes good care of me
financially, but I am a young woman yet and need to know
the future is secure.
I have had offers of dates with other men, but have
stayed true to him. Please tell me if you think I'm being
played for a fool. Or should I wait out his wife?
TIRED AND IMPATIENT
DEAR T. AND I.: Why don't you give HIM something
for his anniversary? His walking papers. If it's security
yoa're after, you won't find It with him.
DEAR ABBY: When you go to a restaurant and order a
sandwich, and it comes with a few slices of pickle on the
edge of the plate, are you supposed to eat the pickle? Or is
It just there for decoration?
We took a survey at our school. Out of 12S students, 75
rejected the pickle, and 90 ate it (mostly with their fin-
gers] Can you just Imagine all the pickles that are wasted
In the city of New York alone? How would you vote. Abby?
IN A PICKLE
DEAR IN: With the pickle eaters.
DEAR ABBY: You have absolutely made my year! I
have had 21 years of moans and groans because of the
name I gave my youngest daughter. And then you come
.'.long and print a letter from a girl who at age 18 actually
CHOSE that very name out of all the names in the world!

Ali could never get any rhythm.
