possible to necgotiate loans for
an appropriate terin of years
rather than by borrowing on a
short term basis
ife said the country's
outstanding short-term loans
amount to some f6.5 million
and t here are also
m ed ium- term loans of
approximately $21 5 million
which maturre before 1975.
LARGELY BURDE)~N
"Although, therefore, our
public debt as a whole may be
considered modest, the amount
maturing in the next few years
Is unduly high and will put an
unduly large burden on the
budget for the years
immediately ahead "
According to Mr. Hanna.
former Finance Minister
Carlton F-rancis was well aware
of this situation and of the
need to remedy 1t. He

government's bankers last
summer with a view to floating
a refinancing loan of some $30
million to deal with these short

of' the Hlouse to such a loan
shortly.

o~n boats and on certain
consumer durable goods which
together "may produce nearly
$ 1 million,"' he said.
Announced Mr. Hlanna:
"The total yield from
additional import duties in
19)73 is $6 million which, with
the car licences, makes rather
more than $7 million.
"All of this taxation is in
respect of goods which may be
broadly classified as
non-essential although I am
well aware that not everyone
might agree with my
interpretation of what is
non-essential."
In the matter of emergency
tax, this is presently charged
on imports at the rate of 7Vz2
per cent.
thTh government is pro osin
raised to 12V/2 per cent which
was expected to produce $5
million in the current year.
EXEMPT
Under the law, Mr. Hanna
said, a number of goods were
exempted from tax,
particularly basic foodstuffs
like flour, lard, rice, sugar,
grits, salted meats, bacon etc.,
footwear, certain goods
approved for industrial and
agricultural development.
petrol and alcohol.
Regarding Stamp Duty on
land transfers, this is presently
charged at the rate of 3/4 per
cent
In place of this a sliding
scale will be introduced
starting at 3/4 per cent below
$6,000 and increasing to 4/2
per cent on values exceeding
$100,000
This, said Mr. Ifanna, should
yield 50.5 million in 19)73

Arthur Hanna introduced a Budget for 1973 that will levy an additional $13.5 million
service requirements and capital development.


in addition to floating a $30
million refinancing loan to pay
o~ff its existing short and
medium term liabilities. the
government proposes to
increase import duties on cars,
spirits and beer "broadly
classified" by the Minister as
S"non-essential' : Introduce
Increases in the Emergency Tax
and Stamp Duty on land
transfers and bring in a
business licence fee.
Alluding to the "tax haven"
status of the Bahamas, Mr.
Hanna told the Hlouse he did
not propose any change in this
Spoliev This indirect taxation
system was however,
"regressive" in that the


taxation burden was niot
apportioned according to the
ability to pay.
T~o eliminate this disparity,
and in view of the taxation
advantage enjoyed by the
Bahamian businessman in not
having to pay tax on his
profits. the Minister said he
thought he had the right to ask
that as far as possible the
burden of anly increased import
duties be absorbed by business
profits and not passed on -
"plus the usual additional
percentage" to the
consumer.
"In this connection I would
add that I have asked the P'rices
Control C'ommnission to be
particularly vigilant in
reporting to me any undue

:.:,-d advie riosno rble
members that I shall not
hesitate to invoke my powers
under the law to impose
statutory control of prices
should I consider this necessary
to protect the Public," Mr.
flanna declared-
IMMEDIATE
Tfhe Minister earlier tabled
two orders effective
immediately. The first order
imposes controls on the prices
of certain breadbasket items
namely butter, cheese, cooking
oil, tinned corned beef, eggs,
evaporated milk, flour, grits,
ham burger, margarine,
mayonnaise, onions, potatoes,
rice, sugar and tomato paste.
lie said the Order would be
reviewed from time to time in
the light of experience and it
might becomeL necessary to
extend this list of items for the
same reason.
The second Order imposes
controls on the prices of motor
cars so that part of the
increased customs duties and
emergency tax will be borne by
the importer.
Dealing specifically with tle
Budget for the year Mr. Hianna
said the estimate of recurrent
expenditure for 19)73 was just
over $104.25 million. Capital
expendliture was estimated at
nearly $131.5 million of which
about1 $4.5 mlillionn would be
paid for out of the loars
atpprovedl by the Amnericun
E'xpo~rt-import Bank, leaving
$9) million to be found out of
general revenues.
The total amount, therefore,
needed to cover the
aeg irelnnls stof the recu rnt
estimnates was $113.25 million.
According to the Finance
Minister. revenues estimated to
be forthcoming from existing
taxation is approximately
$100.5 million, so he would
therefore be seeking louse
approval, he said, "for new
taxes amounting to $13.5
million so that the total
revenues would then be $1 14
million, thius leaving a surplus
of some $3/4 million on the
year s account."

ARTHUIR HANNA
... debut as Finance Minister


By NICKI KELLY
CONTRARY TO THE CONSIDERABLEE AND UNINFORMED DEBATE in the press and elsewhere," the
565 million at the end of December 1972, Finance Minister Arthur Hanna revealed for the first time today.


public debt stood at


Int r duIc inIIg t he
government's Budget for 1973,
Mr. Ilanna diverted tol deal
with the national debt to
"clear up the confusion which
has resulted and which I
believe still exists." he said.
f~he 565 million, he pointed
out, included 59.5 miillion in
Ireasury Bills and was about
50 per cent of the annual
revenue.
Mtr. Haunna said he had been
assured by "independent
inrternational advisers" that this
was not excessive.
M1ODEST' FI(;URE
"Indeed. for an economy '
sucht as ours it is a modest
figure and coulld be increased
without danger should the
fiscal and monetary policies of
the government so requiree" ie
declared.
Secondly the Minister stated
mosc~t emphatically" that it
wvas in no way dishonourable
f or the government to borrow
money for development works
provided this was done within
the bounds of the fiscal and
mnonetary policies to which he
had referred earlier.
"Inde~ed, the contrary is the
case." he said. "It is only by a
c on I strolled poliCY ,f
go~veriinment borrowing that
funds available for investment
mn thec moinetary system can be
u sedt to promote the
develo runner at tot" own


that1 ofi another country.
Shortly before Mr. Hlanna
nocted that at present mioney
neededc for government
decvelopmentn projects was
pro~vide~d froml a number
ol'"pspeial funds" established
byv law and which derived their
Incomeic fromn "cerrtain specified

IFurthermnore its existence had

ini J rattional mlanner.
Hie said it had mealnt that
cecrtaini revenues had to be used
for th~e financing of spe~cified
capital works, regardless of
wvhether they were too mutch
cir too little for those purposes


or whether they would not be
better emiployed for
other things.
Furthermore, he continued,
"the fragmentation of capital
expenditure between a variety
of separate funds mnade it
practically impossible to record
in simple form what have been
the sources of the funds used
for capital works.
As had been agreed at the
London Constitutional
Conference, it was proposed
that the new Constitution omit
the reference to the Crown
Lands Fund and legislation to
abolish this and other special
Funds would be brought to the
liouse shortly, Mr. Hanna said.
A CAPITAL FUND
At the same time the
Minister said he proposed to
bring for consideration of' the
11 house a F:inanclal
Administration Bill whose
purpose would be to regulate
transact ions on the
Consolidated F~und and to also
establish a Capital F-und,
The Capital F~und would
obtain its resources from such
loans as Parliament may
approve to be raised, together
with annual appropriations
from the Consolidated fund
'The effect of these measures
would be that all revenues
would be paid to the
Consolidated F~und In the first
insh nerecurrent costs att the
administration would be paidl
out of' the Counsolidatei f~unid
and the balance would be
available for development l
works or for re~serves

Happy landing, folksr!


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
RECENTLY the Immigration Department refused to renew the
work permit for a Haitian we had employed to keep our 10-acre
property at Camperdown tidy.
1This is as much as one man could do with such a large scope of
land. The most he did was to keep the lawn around the house
mowed, the paths through the now neglected orchard open, and
feed the two horses we still keep.
The message with the rejection slip was to find a Bahamian for
the job.
The only reason that we employed a Haitian in the first place
was that fewer and fewer Bahamians today want to do this kind
of work. Their places were taken by Haitian immigrants. Indeed,
when the economy was booming and construction was a major
industry it would have been impossible to carry through many
important enterprises were it not for H~aitian labour-
This labour was important to the economy. The UBP tried to
keep the number to a reasonable level but made no serious effort
to eliminate them entirely.
As soon as the PLP took control of the G~overnment they
launched a campaign to chase the Haitians out of the island. Their
first move was to hunt these unfortunate people like animals with
police dogs.
The need for these people lessened because, at the same time,
other PLP policies resulted in the slowing down of many
enterprises ... especially construction ... in which thousands of
skilled Bahamians were employed.
* +* * *
We have solved our labour problem at CIamperdown by
arranging with one of our grandsons to mow the lawn around the
house. One of my sons will take care of the horses until he gets
aiebdeof this extra daily chore and then we will shut down the
The only reason for keeping the horses is that my wife has
always kept a horse and she likes to have them around. But soor
we will be moving anyway and so it doesn't really matter.
Even though we are leaving the island we had planned to keep
the horses and maintain the garden.
While the Haitian was employed by me he had to rent a house
... he had to be fed and clothed. And I had to buy feed for the
horses and spend money for the services of a farrier and on the
maintenance of stables.
This money will now be withdrawn from circulation. It will go
into my bank account.
* ** **
This appears to be a very small affair on the surface but it is
not.
Multiply this by the hundreds of other householders who are
experiencing the same problem and who are finding ways of
doing without labour ... who are either curtailing or abandoning
non-essential activities ... and you will find that an enormous
amount of money is being withdrawn from circulation.
The same thing has happ ned in The Tribune. We need about
three key men in our place with experience and skills that are not
available in the Bahamas.
Two of these places may be filled at some time in the near
future by Bahamians who are now being trained abroad ... One in
England and one in the U.S. As time goes on it might be possible
to find other young Bahamians to fill all the places.
But the Immigration Department tells us that we must find
Bahamians NOW.
Bahamians are not available for these jobs and so we have
simply reduced our operation. We have not lost any revenue by
this arrangement because. although we are doing less business'
we have reduced overhead to cover this loss.
You may not have noticed it, but we have gradually reduced
the size of the paper. When things were normal we were printing
a 14 to 20 page paper and also a special Grand Bahama daily.
Today it averages out at 10 pages and we have stopped the Grand

Straining programme and in helping students in various ways

going in Nassau and several abroad. This has all been cancelled.
We now have four scholarships abroad three in the U.K. and
one in the U.S. three finishing this year and the last one next
year. And then ... no more.
Since I have been in Miami I have received letters from parents
of crippled children wanting to know if I can help them in any
way. I can't. They now have to look to Minister of Health Loftus
Roket and Mrs. Shirley Oakes Butler for help.
In all these matters ... who suffers?

Desperately to protect.
Who cares? Certainly not the Government who uses this policy
Ito make the unthinking masses believe that by squeezing
SBahamian businessmen and driving foreigners out of the country
they are creating jobs for Bahamians.

You may think that The 7)ibune's experience is an isolated
:case. But it is not. Ours is probably the worst because tae
governmentt is stupid enough to believe it can hurt me but
:hundreds of other businesses are being affected. especially at
SFreeport which, I am told, is fast taking on the appearance of a

Before the war Nassau had a short winter tourist season. This Finla
business had not yet extended to the Out Islands. three
Jobs were few. Wages were small but fanuilies managed to work R,
out various domestic enterprises that kept them in good heart and attor
good humour. They seemed to be happy and contented with F-
little. Fina
The tourist business was not affected by Britain's entry into de e
the war. Americans continued to travel. With Europe closed to Merc
travel ... and with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor in girl-f
Government House as tourist attractions ... life went on smoothly Mr.
here. Strei
I organized the War Materials work. This war effort provided this
jobs for hundreds of Bahamians at the mletals dumlp. in the T1
canning factory, in a shipyard and on expeditio~ns tor the Out Uwh~
Islands to dismantle abandoned factories and bring the meltal tomo
Nassau for shipment to England. Hosy
I also started a farm which provided housing and gave of
employment to five Bahamians. This effort was an indirect mo~t
contribution to the war effort and to the local economy. Food suffer
produced on mly farml reduced the need for imports f;rom the HI
U.S., thus keeping money in circulation in Nassau and conserving as
hard currency. witn
This was a small effort, of course, but remember Jullia C'arney's she

When America entered the war panic spread through the
islands because the tourist business collapsed. Small as it was at
the time, it was the colony's most important industry.
It was feared at the time that we would he eating each other in 84
six months time.
The Duke of Windsor formed a committee to scale the
economy down to an agricultural level. The one objective at that
time was to produce food to feed the people. I served with the
Duke on this committee.
But the danger soon passed.
America built airfields in Nassau. Thousands of' airmen and
other troops were stationed in the islands. Hundreds of wealthy
evacuees flocked to the island to escape the bombing in England.
Nassau was booming again and people forgot their fears.
Thousands of Bahamnians were recruited for labour ... especially
on farms ... in the U.S., to fill the places of Americans called up
in the armed forces.
Fears were revived when the war ended. The troops were
withdrawn and no one knew how the thousands of workmen in
the U.S. would be absorbed when they can e home.

But several things happened to save the economy from
collapse.
It was feared that the pound sterling might collapse. Wealthy
English people flocked to Nassau to put their money in land. For
example the property of Jas. P. Sands Co. on the waterfront
immediately west of Rawson Square was valued at 10,000 pounds
sterling. Sir James Sands was the grandfather of Sir Stafford
Sands. The family thought they were doing well when they sold it
for 30,000 pounds. This property changed hands several times
within months. Its last reported sale price was nearly 300,000
pounds,thirty times its real value!
Asked why they were throwing their money around in this way
the reply was that if that property was worth only 10,000 pounds
... if the pound sterling collapsed as German, Japanese and French
currencies had done ... the owner of this property would have at

liquid assets because if the pound collapsed their millions might
have no value at all.
The pound did not collapse. America backed the pound at a
fixed value because the pound sterling was then the currency of a
vast Empire and if its value collapsed chaos would be produced in
the money markets of the world.
This inflationary value of land in the Bahamas started the
Bahamas on a land and building boom. So much money had been
poured into the island that the new investors started enterprises
to maintain these values.
Another bit of good fortune for the Bahamas was that when
te An rcmn boysdenwe hone hey din't wa o a o obhak tu nh

were kept in the U.S.
In 1950 Sir Stafford Sands was appointed chairman of th~e
Development Board. He moved to make Nassau a year-round
resort. Few people believed the venture would succeed. But it
did. And Nassau boomed with year-round employment for our
people.
New hotels were built, air transportation was greatly increased.
Excessive post-war taxes in America -- and especially Britain --
drove financiers to the Bahamas seeking a safe hiding place for
some of their money.
The boom extended to the Out Islands ... Eleuthera, Harbour
Island, Exuma, Andros ... and then Wallace Groves created the
Magic City of Freeport.
By 1967 the Bahamas was one of the richest and mo~st
prosperous countries per capital in the world. A brilliant future
lay ahead of the islands, especially after racial barriers were
broken down in 1956 with a resolution moved by me in the


House of Assembly. For the first time white and black Bahamians
were united in a single purpose.
The islands had become so prosperous that Bahamians camle
home from the U.S. They no longer wanted certain labour jobs ...
and thousands of hungry Haitians flocked to the islands to fill thle
gap.
As soon as the PLP took over the G;overnmnent in 1967 thev
started driving non-Bahamians ... and especially Haitians... out ct
the islands. They declared that they wanted the Bahamas fr
Bahamians.
Now the islands may be headed back to the starting point.
The PLP must know where they are headed because both
Ministers Francis and Hanna have declared that they would rather
return to a fishing village economy than suffer the presence of
foreigners in certain positions in the colony.
They want to be rid of the Union Jack. They want their ow"
flag, their own national anthem, they want freedom with Milo
Butler in G;overnment House holding a position once occupied by
the Duke of Windsor.
Well folks, thtis is all fine.
What does it matter if the time comes that you don't have a

I have received several letters from people in Nassau thanking

DEAR 8.M.G.: I presame year "weederful Amerleas
man" was rated by an Amerircan mother win musrt haW
done something right*
DEAR ABBY: I am a 24-yearoid, college educated,
fairly good-looking woman. I am single. To get right to the
poe ,une ms a~ atee a soute y nothing we man
kisses me. But that s not the case with women. I wou
like to be the "man" to another woman. I have never done
anything with either mse. How would you define a
homosexual?
NO NAME, NO CITY
DEAR NO: A homosenaal Is one who has erete feel-
lags about members of his [er her] own rz*
DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years old, married, and am
working. We have no children and don't plan on having
any for another three years. When that thme comes, I plan
on quitting my job and staying home antil the child goes to
school. That will mean six years of being crompletly de-
pendent on my husband--tinancially.
I am very independent, and I cant see asking my bus-
band for every cent I need or want. I Ilke to spend money,
and I buy many things that aren't necessities.
I am contemplating opening my own bank account and
keeping it a secret from my husband. That way I will have
some money saved up and I won't have to beg, borrow or
steal. What is your opinion? CURIOUS
DEAR CURIOUS: I dea't know what year flamacill
agreement is with year husband, but if yeaa agreed to pool
year earalag and share it, for yrou to have a secret account
would be dishonest.
Saving is a sound idea. Why set tell yealr husband that
you'd tlke to stat saving now for the time when youll set
be a worklag wife? And by the way, where did yes get the
idea that nonworklag wives must either begl, borrow, or
steal in order to get mroney from their husbands?
DEAR ABBY: What do you do about a boss who pock-
ets the waitresses' tips from signed tabs off dining room
and bahquets?
Abby, the boss is the owner, and this is a high-class
supper club. To confront him wouki mean our jobs, and
other than this problem, it's a good place to work.
Maybe it he sees this in the paper, he'll know we are
wise to him. Sign us .. "CHEATED IN MISSOUIA"
DEAR CHEATED: Here's your letter. And I hope this
Is the last "tip" your boss takes.

MINGilAM": If yea hoesrtly waat to discearage gossips
from telling yea Utblags o'd rather not know, cut themn off

quickly change the a~b~ject. It wporks every time.

Most Amerlean men re benpecked by bossy wives who

tilagh Soace I have come to this country I can now under-
stand why so many Am~cria meln prefer to marry foreign
romen. We u aret so different from American women,
only we actually enjoy our womanhood and do not try to be
something else. We are truly liberated, and it is a lot of
sensena tha we waIl three stoep behind our husbands and
refrals from speaklag mou minds.
The boldnessr ad lack; of grace I have observed in
many Amerlean women make it quite obvious why there
an a many divorcesl in ymou country. In my country, we
say: "A storog wife and mother is the source of a strong
busband, children, and country."
Whaut could be maor complimentary to women?

"IT's an investment like buying stock." The man spoke quietly to his companion as they stood in front of a
large portrait of Miz Geta, price tag $1,200. Miz Geta's portrait would be an investment and doubtless one that will
increase in value with the years. Hers is just one of almost 30 paintings exhibited at the Sheraton-British Colonial

hMr. Lowe's paintings are not
c eap. He is selling a very
expensive talent which Is
becoming mfore expensive with
every painting he produces.
TIhe popularity of his work,
money no object, was obvious
by the tiny red "sold' stickers
which adorned nine-tenths of
the pictures o~n exhibition last
weekend.
Three years ago when Mr.
Lowe put on his first Nassau
show, it was generally felt that
although his paintings were
innoe heuiu n to e, like
they were none the less "flat"
'They lacked a certain depth of
feeilmg and maturity. This
p imnot b n saltdh toryte '
exhibition-
Mil. Geta sits serenely in her
chaiir holding her pipe and
looking out at the viewer with
movingly gentle eyes. Hler arm
rests easily on her broad
tummy. If the viewer gulps at
the price, Miz G~eta speaks out


quietly, "I'm worth every
penny". And she is!
F;ACEI OF MANY
"Beyond the H~orizon" is the
portrait of Virginus Burrows,
an old Abaconian with flying
gray hair and a face sprayed
with gray heard stubble. his
eyes intense. his forehead
c~reased by time and weather,
lie holds a pair of binoculars in
his lap. You've seen the face of
Virginus Burro~ws In the faces
of a hundrdd aging Bahamilans
who have worked hard and
well for century < e i a

photographic artist and
nowhere Is this more
prominent than In his
Ibc ad MaH urnIs ann. Ilin
painting of a street in Dunmore
Town transports the viewer
right to the spot. The houses,
the fences, the flowers are real,
'ERFIC'T
Parliament Street in New
Plymouth, Abaco, where Mr.
Lowe was born, is perfect in


every detail from the ferns in
the hanging baskets on the
porch to the Blarclays Bank
sign with its impressive black
eagle. These paintings capture
nor only the detail of' the
tangible objects but also the
essence of the sunlight which
strikes walls and streets with an
almost too bright, too whute
quality which again is very real.
Two young girls watch a
sloop coming towards the
shore in "Sail Hlo! `. The story
possibilities in these young
wai ngafresoen eonre ab a
the sloop? Are they hoping
some special person is aboard?
Are they waiting at all or just
watchingr and dree iing? t er
again, Mr oehscp ue
the colour of the sea, the wisps
of mauve and purple in the
sky, the gray-yellow of the
coral.
FLOWERS DE~LIG;HT
Also included in the showing
were numerous floral paintings.
Mr. Lowe is obviously fond of


Towers and delights in painting
them. While his hibiscus still
look like a collection of plastic
fakes, his other flowers project
a more Iife -like quality. Mr.
L~owe paints the Bahamas and
unfortunately the hibiscus Is a
part of the scene. It deserves
better treatment than that
given by Mr. Lowe's brush.
Mr. Lowe's annual
exhibition Is well worth
waiting for each year. He Is
recording a Bahamas which
may disappear one day In the
name hf prges ilt is his hpe
beauty of the old buildings and
settlements of the islands, they
may become more aware of the
need to preserve them. Let us
hope that by creating his very
fine paintings, his dreams will
be realized.

CARROLL RIGHTER'S

from the Carrol Riglhter Institute
GENERAL TENDENCIES: You find there is a
great deal of energy released today; unless it is
properly directed by almost everyone there can be a
considerable amount of recklessness and uncontrolled
arguments and potential accidental conditions. But the evening
finds nearly everyone interested in humanitarian projects.
ARIES (Miar. 21 to Apr. 19) Whatever is concerned with
civic or career matters is favored in a.m. Reserve the p.m. for
personal matters. Meeting with bigwigs and solving problems
wisely is good. Pals are charming in p.m
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) You have new ideas that can
fit right into your present activities for greater success. Talk
over the future with new associates and with prominent

""EnlsNI mMay 21 to June 21) There are business
responsibilities to handle during day hours, but evening is best
for personal matters. Seek advice from key persons and follow
the best of this. Mate can be very helpful, also.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Sit down with
associates and work out ideas and mode of operation for the
future; then get busy with work necessary. Come to a better
understanding with one who opposes you. Rely on a good
associate in p.m.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Cement better relations with
fellow workers and get more accomplished during day. Build
up your energy via intelligent methods in p.m. Wardrobe
should be rearranged in the evening to suit your better.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Get busy at whatever you
most like to do during the day, but take it easy tonight and
plan how to advance more quickly. Put your finest talents to
work and you can become a more successful person.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Handle home affairs most
carefully in p.m., for trouble could ensue otherwise at that
time. All of your basic affairs require attention so they are
better organized. Evening fine for entertainment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Show you can operate in a
most constructive and effective way, and don't get into any
trouble during day. Evening is best spent with kin. Don't
forget to shop and do important errands for yourself or others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Handle monetary
matters during day hours and then you can join with
congenials in p.m., once all is in order. A consultation with an
expert could be most helpful to you now. Ply that hobby you
enjoy so much tonight.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Get into the activities
you like during day and postpone the financial to the evening
hours. Then use good judgment. Make sure that someone isn't
trying to fool you. A good night's rest is important.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Delve into whatever
appeals to you the most during the day confidentially, then go
out socially in p.m. to improve your position in life. Assist one
who is having some kind of difficulty. A happy day, p.m. for
you.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Listen to what a good pal has
to suggest concerning your long-time aims, and then get busy
doing the work this necessitates. Forget the social side of life
for now and do what is of a constructive nature. Read some,
too.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY .. he or she will be
ineliof thoga nersin a on peopl awhow s we much
very successful along such lines. Later in life there will be the!
desire to help others with their plans and this can be
successful, making the whole life very constructive and
worthwhile. Send to the right schools and be sure to give
sports and cultural privileges early. Religion a must here.
'Trhe Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

hadn't ridden in a race for ten
weeks," said G;odet, "and
because of this G;ary had
considerable troub le
