OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM CLOSES
$8 BILLION DEAL WITH RUSSIA
MOSCOW (AP) Armand
Hammer parlayed an
acquaintance with Lenin, the
gift of a Goya and dogged
persistence into an $8 billion
fertilizer deal with Lcnnin's
hens Thursday the biggest
transaction of its kind the
Russians have ever concluded
with a Western firm.
The septuagenarian
president of Occidental
Petroleum, who announced to
a skeptical business world last
September that his proposals
had the approval of Premier
Alexel N. Kosygin, signed the
deal with Kikolai Komarov. a
deputj loreign trade minister.

In an optimistic frame of
mind last September, Hammer
told the Associated Press "It
they take everything we are
offering them, the deal will be
worth $6 billion."
His aides indicated at the
time that would be the upper
limit
The deal Thursday exceeded
Hammer's expectations.
"The agreement," TASS
said, "is signed for a term of 20
veus and provides for mutual
goods deliveries worth about
eight billion American dollars."
The figure was confirmed by
the U.S. embassy.
The American, who boasted
of a good business relationship
with V. I. Lenin, has been a
frequent visitor to Moscow in
the past year, never taking
"Nyet" for an answer.
He has wooed the Soviet
leadership with letters from

with in the early 1920s when
he set up a pencil factory in

v, LSHINGTON (API ihe
Democratic chairman of a
House subcommittee
investigating government
secrecy testified Thursday that
the Nixon administration has
arrogantly asserted "The divine
right of the Presidency" to
withhold information from
Congress
"I submit that this is a
doctrine of monarchial origin
at best, or at worst, a
totalitarian dogma espoused by
' b a n a n a r e p u b I i i '
dictatorships," said Rep
Williams S. Moorhead of
Pennsylvania.
His comments at a joint
hearing of three Senate
subcommittees were directed
at the testimony two days ago
of Atty. Gen. Richard G
Kleindienst
"I never thought the day
would come," Moorhead said,
"when any Attorney General
of the United States could have
the audacity to proclaim that,
in effect, Congress had no
power to order any employee
of the executive branch to
appear and testify if the
Presldenl in his almighty
wisdom barred such
testimony."
The White House said
Wednesday that Kleindienst \
testimony was an expression of
administration policy. He
asserted that under the
constitutional separation of
powers, the President may use
executive privilege to prevent
any subordinate from giving
information to Congress.
ARROGANT
While Moorhead called
Kleindienst's testimony an
"amazingly arrogant
performance," Ralph Nader
testified "the major problem
with executive privilege is that
the Congress has not in any
meaningful way challenged" its
use by Nixon and other
Presidents.
"The Congress has totally
failed in asserting its right to
executive information," Nader
said. "It has growled, but it has
never grappled."
He said Congress must serve
subpoenas and force court
tests
"All of the executive
privilege crises of the past,"
Nader said. "have been
resolved by settlement that
almost without exception has
confirmed the very dubious
power of the executive to
claim it."
Harvard Law School
professor Raoul Berger, who
claimed executive privilege "a
constitutional myth," also
urged a court test through
contempt proceedings against
an executive branch witness
refusing to respond to a
Congressional subpoena.
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy,
(l)-Mass.) who presided at the
hearing, proposed Congress
consider legislation
empowering it
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy,
(I)-Mass.) who presided at the
hearing, proposed Congress
consider legislation
empowering its committees to
bring court suits to compel
testimony and production of
records by executive branch
employees.
This would be a way, he
said, lo make the judiciary the
arbiter of disputes between
Congress and the President
over access to information.
"Mr. Nixon has suggested a
court test of his assertion of
privilege, and so do I."
Kennedy said.

Picasso's collection of . WU hold 2
other artists donated
to Louvre Museum
By Michael Goldsmith
PARIS (AP) Pablo Picasso's widow and son announced
Thursday they ire donating to the French people the whole of
Picasso's priceless collection of works by other artists.
A statement issued by
Picasso's Paris attorney.
Roland Dumas, said the
multimillion dollar gift to the
state-owned Louvre Museum
was made in accordance with
Ihe artist's own wishes
Picasso died in Mougins. on
the French Riviera, on April 8,
at the age of 91, leaving his
widow, Jacqueline, 46, and a
son by his first marriage, Paulo,
52
Only one condition was
attached to the donation: That
the pictures should not be split
up but exhibited permanently
as the Picasso Collection in a
single room of the Louvre.
As well as the collection
given to the Louvre, there are
hundreds, perhaps thousands
of paintings, drawings,
sketches, sculptures and other
works of art from the prolific-
hands of Picasso in the
Mougins villa.
In recent years he had been
reported working with feverish
intensity in the huge studio
there.
The works of Mougins are of
intestimable value. Art dealers
have been concerned that the
family may be forced to release
a flood onto the market to pay
death duties, possibly
provoking a collapse in the
Picasso market.
The French government
could claim death duties up to
50 per cent from his estimate
up to 20 per cent from the
widow and offspring, but more
for "indirect" heirs. French
museums are exempt.
The first sale of Picasso
works since his death, held in
London on Thursday, showed
no spectacular change in values
either way. A world record
offer of $250,000 for a
complete suite of 100 etchings
made for his dealer. Ambrose
Vollard. between 1912 and
1914. was rejected at
Sotheby's as it failed to reach
the reserve price. A similar
Vollard Suite sold in London
last November for $236,250, a
record figure.
Jean Catelain, director of
France's state-owned museums,
expressed delight at the
unprecedented donation,
ranging from the 17th century
French master Louis le Nain to
the colourful abstracts of
Picasso's Spanish compatriot
and friend, Joan Miro.
Picasso obtained many of
the older pictures in his
collection in barter
arrangements with Vollard.
The modern pictures came
largely from exchange deals
with friends.
Foremost among them was
the great French artist Henri
Matisse who died in 1954.
Picasso and Matisse shared a
special friendship and
admiration for each other's
works and often traded
paintings.
There was no precise
listing of Picasso's
"Non-Picasso" collection, but
it is known to include at least
10 paintings by Matisse,
including one of his major
works, "Greenery with
oranges."
The older pictures include a
group of peasants by Le Nain,
landscapes by Corot, Vlaminck
and Courbet and numerous
works by impressionists Van
Gogh, Degas, Renoir and
Cezanne. Pictures by Picasso's
friends or contemporaries also
include such high-priced
signatures as Modigliam.
Braque, Derain, Max Lrnst,
Henri Rousseau, Raoul Dufy.
Fernand Leger and Miro
Picasso had a valuable
collection of African masks
and sculptures and medieval
Spanish art objects. These
presumably will be part of the
donation to the Louvre
Much of his unique art
collection was kept in the
Mougins villa where he spent
the last I 2 years of his life and
where he died Picasso alone
had the key to the room
containing Ihe most precious
pictures He ironically called it
his '"junk room"
The announcement was
made on behalf of Jacqueline
and Paulo, who were described
as Picasso's 'beneficiaries"
implying that there were no
other claimants to the estate
In fact, Picasso's three
illegitimate children, his
nephew and his grandchildren
may subsequently claim a share
of the accumulated fortune
represented by Picasso's own
pictures.
The illegitimate children are

EDITORIAL
The painful truth
By ETIF.NNF DUPUCH
IN TWO articles on days immediately following the Hon.
Arthur Hanna's maiden budget speech as Minister of Finance, I
cleared up in this column two situitions that arose as a result of
his comments.
1 said at the time that I would discuss the details of this speech
at a later date.
I was in no hurry because there is no cure for the pain and
anxiety the taxes levied in this speech have caused our people ....
especially our poor working people.
A fact people like Mr. Hanna dont realize is that it is not easy
to hurt wealthy people. They have a good reserve of fat on which
they can continue to live well. And if they feel the need to
retrench it is the people they employ who are hurt.
All along the line it is the poor mar who must always live near
the knuckle. It is the poor man who feels the pinch of new taxes.
Now let us look back to the time the PLP took over the
country.
At that time everything was booming. Taxes were small. House
property tax had not touched many people, especially in the poor
areas of New Providence. There was no thought or talk of new
taxation. There was no need for new taxes because the colony's
finances were in the hands of experienced business men who
knew that the first element of sound business is not to spend
more than you earn.
As soon as the PLP took over they started to fatten their own
goose.
Whereas in the past people had given their services to the
colony free, these new men wanted money for themselves .... not
a little bit of money .... they wanted plenty.
Who has paid for their new prosperity?
YOU have, Mr. John Q. Public.
In the early days of their control they kept on feeding the
public with propaganda about what the Bay Street politicians had
done to them. Anything that went wrong they blamed on the
previous Government but by now that excuse has worn thin.
Two years ago the Government had exhausted all the avenues
for borrowing money and so they were obliged to impose new
taxes to meet the demands of all the new fixed expenditures they
had created.
For the first time the Over-the-Hill people .... Mr. Pindling's
"grass roots" element .... were called on to pay house property
tax.
In addition, taxes were increased on postage, stamp duties on
documents, gas and diesel oil, casino winnings, departure tax,
potted plants, boat licences, beer, hotel rooms, films, cigarettes,
electricity, water, radios, banks and trusts and the telephone
reconnection fees.
In some small cases the rate went up nearly 300 percent. In a
few big cases the increase was 100 percent. For example, the
owner of a car is now paying nearly 100 percent more for the
licence on his car.
A direct result of these taxes was a general rise in the cost of
living. Prices of goods in the shops went up.
In an effort to pull a red herring across the trail the
Government started a propaganda campaign claiming that "the
Bay Street boys" were gouging the eyes out of the people. And so
they appointed a Prices Control Committee under the
chairmanship of the Minister of Finance.
They promised to control prices. But this has failed because a
cold blooded fact of business that no government can alter is that
a reasonable profit must be made by any operation if a standard
is to be maintained.
And, of course, prices continued to rise. And business people
started reducing staff to cut down their overhead operating costs.
You see what happened the other day when the Prices Control
people tried to hold down the price of chicken meat. The owner
of the biggest chicken farm in the island closed down his
operation because he claimed that he was losing money at the
price level demanded by Government.
This produced a shortage of chicken meat in the island that
could not be replaced with imported chicken because the price
level was too low.
And so the Prices Control people had to back down. The
chicken farmer got the price at which he said he could operate
profitably and he then reopened his operation.
It is just as simple as that.
You know ... the men in the present Government have strange
minds. In everything they do they reveal a shocking lack of
experience in every field of human endeavour.
Now that the Treasury is dry again the new Finance Minister
has come out with a new bag of taxes which he claims will not
affect the working man ... the former Finance Minister even
claimed that a motor car is a luxury.
And so, having already raised the taxes on fuel, car licences,
drivers licences, he has now slapped an outrageous import tax on
motor car parts and the motor car itself.
No one can hope to convince the public that a motor car is a
luxury today.
In the absence of an efficient public transport system, the
motor car is one of the most essential items for the working man.
The rich man will pay this tax without feeling it. It is the poor
man who must come to town from great distances in the island
today who will feel the blow.
There was a time long ago when 95 percent of our people lived
within reasonable walking distance of the town. As a result of the
motor car, more than half the people now live in new
developments all over New Providence.
The situation is still more acute in the Out Islands where roads
have been opened up and settlements that had no communication
now have a great many activities in common. The motor car is the
link that has made this new relationship possible.
Living in these settlements are mostly poor people .... and so

and arigonite industries in the Bahamas were underscored by
Opposition Senator Arthur Foulkes Monday when he warned that
they could destroy the country's major breadwinner tourism
Senator Foulkes. an and by extension humans. In
REPORT FROM PARLIAMENT
outspoken champion of
environmental protection,
pointed to the sulphur fallout
from the existing Freeport
refinery and the crude oil
wash-up on the beaches of
Harbour Island as only a
preview of what could happen
should the government persist
in encouraging the
establishment here of
ecologically harmful industries.
The damage from the big oil
spill off the California coast
two years ago still remained to
be corrected and would cost
millions, he declared.
The Bahamas, whose hidden
shoals once made wrecking a
thnving business, was a high
risk area. For this reason alone
the government should keep
tankers as far away from the
Bahamas as possible.
Senator Foulkes said that
people both in Florida and
Grand Bahama were
complaining about the sulphur
fallout which affected
people and plants "and
everything that crawls and
creeps."
He reminded members that
when he was in the House he
had tried to get the
government to set up an
Evironmental Department.
"What we need is a proper
department staffed with
experts, and not rely on the oil
people who will mislead us,"
he declared.
SANITARY ENGINEER
Referring to Health Minister
Loftus Roker's announcement
that his Ministry was seeking a
santiary engineer to head its
Environmental Services
Department, Senator Foulkes
questioned whether such a
person would be capable of
dealing with the problem.
He also mentioned the
by-product pollution from
mercury pumped into the sea
and hazardous to marine life
addition the mercury tended to
upset the temperature oi the
water, creating yet another
danger
"We have to protect whal
we have .it .Hi cost," Senatoi
Foulkes insisted.
Contrary to what the
Development Minister might
say about (ailing hack mi
fisheries it tourism failed, there
would be no tish if the oil
people were allowed to pollute
out waters
Senator Foulkes drew
particular attention to Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling's
published comment thai the
Bahamas was able to solve the
United States' energy crisis,
This, he noted, was at a time
when Americans themselves
were challenging the laying of
an oU pipe line across Alaska
because it might upset the
ecology
As for aragonite, "the
revenue we get from this, when
compared with the chances we
are taking is not worth It."
This yeai's estimate was
SI55.000, Senator foulkes
said.
He then referred to attempts
made to establish the Industry
in Australia in the 1960s and
the reasons why the
Australians had rejected the
idea.
EARTH All I (III)
They had found that the
crust of the earth might be
affected this had been
supported by the tact that
areas in the U.S. which had
never before experienced
earthquake tremors were now
subject to them following
heavy drilling and the creation
of artificial lakes.
Secondly, there was an
"unlimited universe of living
creatures" in aragonite I hoir
removal could damage the
ecological balance and
poor people have been hard hit from all directions by a
Government that made them believe that they would bring them
a new level of freedom.
And, remember folks, this is just the beginning. After July
10th you will have the high cost of independence to meet. And so
you must be further taxed to meet this bill. This is something a
majority of you people have been made to believe that you want
.... and so now YOU will have to pay for it.
Don't ask me what can be done to stop this trend now.
Nothing can be done. It's too late. You already arc stuck in the
bog and you will continue to go lower and lower in sinking sands
until you have been smothered to death by taxes.
Oh no, the boys in Government will not be hurt. They are in a
position where they can fatten on the carcasses of you poor
trusting people who voted them into office and continue to
maintain them there.
Nor could any change in Government alter this downward
march because there is no one in sight who would have the
strength or the ability to check the rot.
Not only the economy has been destroyed, the minds of our
people have been poisoned and their whole character has been
changed.
The people in Government arc so short sighted and impractical
that they don't realize that figures don't mean anything unless
you can see around a situation and measure its consequences
There was a time when tourists came here to buy a wide range
of English and European goods because they were cheap.
The prices have changed on these items so much that tourists
have found that they can buy many of them just as cheap or
cheaper in their own home towns. And so this large piece of
tourist business has been lost.
Liquor continued to be one of the items that Americans took
away with them when they left the island.
Now a heavy tax has been placed on this commodity. It is
possible that this piece of foreign business will also disappear,
thereby not only seriously damaging some of out liquor
merchants but also reducing the (low of hard currency in the
market.
What is more .... tourists will not be prepared to pa) the
increased price for liquor at hotel bars, thus further damaging the
already crippled hotel business.
But here is a fact these men have overlooked.
Back in 1970 the beer consumption in the colon) was 2 5
million cases a year.
Then the Government put a heavy tax on beer.
In 1971 the beer consumption dropped to 2.2 million cases
and last year the figure was 1.8 million.
And so, there you are ... taxes go up, consumption drops, and
the Government finds the Treasury just as dry as before the taxes
were imposed.
This means more and more taxation .... less and less
consumption of over-taxed goods. And misery and insecurity all
round.

In a speech at the opening of the Legislature on Februat) 21,
1968 the Governor pledged, on behalf of the PLP Government,
that there would be no income tax and no independence.
Well .... independence is here. It will come on July 10th and
the people have been drugged into believing that it will be a great
thing by propaganda being broadcast over ZNS.
But the day of reality will come .... and I am sorry fi
people who will have to carry the burdens of this new fixed
expenditure.
And when income tax comes .... as come it now must .... that
will be the end.
All I have to say is that it is now too bad, too sad. too late
Small wonder Mr. Pindling says he must build up a strong
police force to maintain order in the colony after Indepei .
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Remember folks .... a people get the kind of Government they
deserve.

Cautioned the Senator "We

Senator Alexander Maillis
(PLP) argued that contrary to
Senator foulkes' allegations,
the building of Kelly Island
had produced an explosion ol

lie attributed this to the tact
thai in the muddy waters the

Senator L. B. Johnson (Ind )
noted that the Bahamas by its
very nature and historical
accident, was positioned within
the shipping lanes where
trans-Atlantic tankers must

I he country was already
exposed to dumping in the
Atlanl ic. The question
therefore was whether we were
going to go forward and take
advantage of this industry or
try to stop shipping from using

He thought consideration
should be given to what was
good for the country.
"It is worthwhile taking the
risk to bring about an industry
in the country over which we
can have some control." Mr.
lohnson argued. He felt that
by having it within its
'jurisdiction government could
exercise control over the
industry
Answering Senator Maillis.

Led by the first black prime
minister in the country's
history, the independent
Commonwealth of the
Bahamas has a couple of items
to attend to with the United
States and Cuba before
making its final break from
Britain on July 10.
At a conference in Nassau
with U.S. and British officials
this spring, Prime Minister
Lynden O. Pindling and his
foreign secretary, Paul

PINDLING and Adderley
also expect to meet with
Cuba's Fidel Castro "in the
near future" to talk about sea
boundaries and fishing rights.
Pindling calls the establishment

of internationally recognized
territorial limits for the
widespread series of islands,

out rop ingla ie dfther kos:
important items of business for
his government.
It could turn out to be one
of the most controversial, since
Britain and the United States
have objected to his
"archipelago principle" of
determining marine rights and
national fountiers.
Pindling and Adderley
d is pute c ha rges that
Commnunist elements are at
work in the islands, attempting
to influence government
policy.
"We don't have any plans to
talk to Cuba on anything other
than sea boundaries and f'ishing
rightss" Adderley says. "We
have a common interest with
them on this."
Foreign and diplomatic
sources agree that the threat of
internal communism appears
negligible.
THE FUTURE of' the
Amerrican bases in the
Bahamias. until now miaintained
through agreements with the
British, is to be workers out
be fore indepen den ce,
according to Adderley. T'he
United States now maintains
three active mi iIilta ry
installations in the Bahameis.
Working quietly. PI'ndling
Adderley and other 1Uban~llian I
officials appear moderate and
pragmatic men, drawing on Ithe
experiences of other newly


independent Commonwealth
countries.
"We don't intend to make
the mistakes made by others."
says Adderley.
Perh ps the count y's
biggestapasset is the short
stocky Pindling, a 43-year-old
British-educated dynamo of
energy. And perhaps his
government's biggest problem
is a recently acquired image of
black power and racism. So~e
ascribe that to unfounded fears
and political charges.
More than rr5 per cent of' the
population of 180,000
scattered over some 30
inhabitated islands is black.

THE QUESTION of image is
a serious one to the sensitive,
tourist-based economy.
Pindling acknowledges there
has been surge of nationalism'
since his black government
took over in 1967 "some have
called it black nationalism or

Senator for greater control
over the illegal importation of
firearms was heartily endorsed
by government Senate Leader
Paul Adderley Wednesday.
The appeal by the FNiM's
Henry Bostwick came as the
Senate debated increases in
customs duties on certain
nonessentialal' items.
Senator Bostwick said he
was not so much concerned
atbout the tax on revolvers or
firearms, because he felt no
guns should be available to
anyone.
Ilowever he wished to miake
the point that the Opposition
was concerned that steps he
taken to curb the availability
of such arms to young people.
As a lawyer, he told
rnembers, he had become
painfully aware tha~t there were
hands of young men who, were
willing and able to commit
crimes with firearms.
At the same time since these
firearms were easily available
to those who) wouldI uIse them 1
illegally andf if the authorities
were unable to curb their
"clnmpantt and unlawful use,"
then perhaps consideration
shouldl be given to seeing that
citizens were protected in their
private lives.
"(ProperL conItro)ls ow~St be


put on1 the illegal imporrtatcion
of ;rmls." Senator Bostwick
emlphasized.
C'onmmnding the member,
Senatior A\dderley said he
agreed 100 per cent with what
he hald salid.
"T~he problem is not one
that is native to this so~ciety
but to the great society to
which we are so closely
connlccted. Were it not that tle
gunl lobby in the U.S. has
prevented more .widespread
licensing of guns we would not
hiave this problem ." he
declared.
This, he added, was one (f
the more undesirable exports
from that country. Basic~ally
the arms came from the Ui.S.
and were smuggledl through
Customs in one formi ~r
another.
Senator Adderley said he
would not suggest niior<.
rigorous Customs inspection as
this would place undue b~urden
on that department.
But what he would agree to
is strengthening of the penal
consequences ihat woubl l
follow for those found in
u nla wf ul possession of
firearms.


The Senator said that for his
own part he would welcome a
mlore severe law fo~r persons
unlawfully in po~ssession of
firearms.
The im~nposi tion of
mandatory prison sentenices
might be one of the ways this
particular matter might he
dealt with.
Although speaking only for
himself Senator Adderley did
point out that the matter was
"exercising comie concern" and
was under govemmernnt
consideration.
"Severer penalties and
muandatory jail sences~IC' ma1y
be part of the answer to this
continued illicit traffic in
f~irearmls," he said*

Jean Catelain, director of
France's state-owned museums,
expressed delight at the
unprecedented donation,
ranging from the 17th century
French master Louis le Nain to
the colourful abstracts of
Picasso's Spanish compatriot
and friend, Joan Mire.
Picasso obtained many of
the older pictures in his
c ollec tion In bar ter
arrangements with Vollard.
The modern pictures came
largely from exchange deals
with friends.
Foremost among them was
the great French artist Henri
Matisse who died in 1954.
Picasso and Matisse shared a
special friendship and
admiration for each other's
works and often traded
paintings.
There was no precise
listing of Pic asso's
"Non-Picasso" collection, but
it is known to include at least
10 paintings by Matisse,
including one of his major
work s, "Greenery with
oranges."
The older pictures include a
Broup of peasants by Le Nain,
landscapes by Corot, Vlaminck
and Courbet and numerous
works by impressionists Van
Gogh, Degas, Renoir and
Cezanne. Pictures by Picasso's
friends or contemporaries also
include such high-priced
signatures as Modigliani,
Braque, Derain, Ma x Ernst,
Henri Rousseau, Raoul Dufy,
Fernand Leger and Miro.
Picasso had a valuable
collection of African masks

His aides indicated at the
time that would be the upper

The deal Thursday exceeded

By ETI ENNE DUPUCH
IN TWO articles on days immediately following the Hon.
Arthur Hanna's maiden budget speech as Minister of Finance, I
cleared up in this column two situations that arose as a result of
his comments.
I said at the time that I would discuss the details of this speech
at a later date.
I was in no hurry because there is no cure for the pain and
anxiety the taxes levied in this speech have caused our people ..
especially our poor working pole
A fact people like Mr. Hanna dont realize is that it is not easy
to hurt wealthy people. They have a good reserve of fat on which
they can continue to live well. And if they feel the need to
retrench it is the people they employ who are hurt.
All along the line it is the poor mar, who must always live near
the knuckle. It is the poor man who feels the pinch of new taxes.
+**********
Now let us look back to the time the PLP took over the
country
At that time everything was booming. Taxes were small. House
property tax had not touched many people, especially in the poor
areas of New Providence. There was to thought or talk of new
taxation. There was no need for new taxes because the colony's
finances were in the hands of experienced business men who
knew that the first element of sound business is not to spend
more than you earn.
*+*********
As soon as the PLP took over they started to fatten their own
goose.
Whereas in the past people had given their services to the
coony free, these new men wanted money for themselves .... not
a ltte itof ony .. thy anedpl ny
Who has paid for their new prosperity?
YOU have, Mr. John Q. Pubi

In the early days of their control they kept on feeding the
public with propaganda about what the Bay Street politicians had
done to them. Anything that went wrong they blamed on the
previous Government but by now that excuse has worn thin.
Two years ago the Government had exhausted all the avenues
for borrowing money and so they were obliged to impose new
taxes to meet the demands of all the new fixed expenditures they
had created.
For the first time the Over-the-Hill people .... Mr. Pindling's
"grass roots" element .... were called on to pay house property
tax.
In addition, taxes were increased on postage, stamp duties on

potet I ats, boatdli ecs, ec, htoel roms fpilme, at trete ,
electricity, water, radios, banks and trusts and the telephone
reconnection fees.
In some small cases the rate went up nearly 300 percent. In a
few big cases the increase was 100 percent. For example, the
owner of a car is now paying nearly 100 percent more for the
licence on his car.
A direct result of these taxes was a general rise in the cost of
living. Prices of goods in the shops went up.
In an effort to pull a red herring across the trail the
Government startedns propaganda campaign claiming that "the
Bay Street boys" were gouging the eyes out of the people. And so
they appointed a Prices Control Committee under the
chairmanship of the Minister of Finance.
They promised to control prices. But this has failed because a
cold blooded fact of business that no government can alter is that
a reasonable profit must be made by any operation if a standard
is to be maintained.
And, of course, prices continued to rise. And business people
started reducing staff to cut down their overhead operating costs.
*e*********
You see what happened the other day when the Prices Control
people tried to hold down the price of chicken meat. 'lle owner
of the biggest chicken farm in the island closed down his
operation because he claimed that he was losing money at the
price level demanded by Government.
This produced a shortage of chicken meat in the island that
could not be replaced with imported chicken because the price
level was too low
And so the Prices Control people had to back down. The
chicken farmer got the price at which he said he could operate
profitably and he then reopened his operation.
It is just as simple as tha .,4,,

You know ... the men in the present Government have strange
minds. In everything they do they reveal a shocking lack of
exp rerience in ever field of human endeavour.
Now that the Treasury is dry again the new Finance Minister
has come out with a new bag of taxes which he claims will not
affect the working man ... the former Finance Minister even
claimed that a motor car is a luxury.
And so, having already raised the taxes on fuel, car licences,
drivers licences, he has now slapped an outrageous import tax on
motor car parts and the motor car itself.


No one can hope to convince the public that a motor car is a
luxury today.
In the absence of an efficient public transport system. the
motor car is one of the most essential items for the working man.
The rich man will pay this tax without feeling it. It is the poor
man who must come to town from great distances in the island
today who will feel the blow.
There was a time long ago when 95 percent of our people lived
within reasonable walking distance of the town. As a result of the
motor car, more than half the people now live in new
developments all over New Providence.
The situation is still more acute in the Out Islands where roads
have been opened up and settlements that had no communication
now have a great many activities in common. The motor car is the
Slink that has made this new relationship possible.
Living in these settlements are mostly poor people .... and so


~~~~311R1~~1~~31~~~~I


lan


poor people have been hard hit from all directions by a
Government that made them believe that they would bring then
a new level of freedom.
And, remember folks, this is just the beginning. After July
10th you will have the high cost of independence to meet. Anld so
you must be further taxed to meet this bill. This is something a
majority of you people have been made to believe that you want
.... and so now YOU will have to pay for it.
Don't ask me what can be done to stop this trend now.
Nothing can be done. It's too late. You already are stuck in the
bog and you will continue to go lower and lower in sinking sands
until you have been smothered to death by taxes.
*+ir.**.***
Oh no, the boys in Government will not be hurt. They are int a
position where they can fatten on the carcasses of you poor
trusting people who voted them into office and continue to
maintain them there.
Nor could any change in Government alter this downward
march because there is no one in sight who would have the
strength or the ability to check the rot.
Not only the economy has been destroyed, the minds of` our
people have been poisoned and their whole character has been
changed.

The people in Govemment are so short sighted and impractical
that they don't realize that figures don't mean anything unless
you can see around a situation and measure its consequences.
There was a time when tourists came here to buy a wide range
of English and European goods because they were cheap.
The prices have changed on these items so much that tourists
have found that they can buy many of them just as cheap or
cheaper in their own home towns. And so this large piece of
tourist business has been lost.
Liquor continued to be one of the items that Americans took
away with them when they left the island.
Now a heavy tax has been placed on this commodity. It is
possible that this piece of foreign business will also disappear,
thereby not only seriously damaging some of our liqluor
merchants but also reducing the flow of hard currency in the
market.
What is more .... tourists will not be prepared to pay~ the
increased price for liquor at hotel bars, thus further damaging the
already crippled hotel business.


Butkh n 19a7 tthe bem hos lnten in nt e colony was 2.5
million cases a year.
Then the Government put a heavy tax on beer.
In 1971 the beer consumption dropped to 2.2 million cases
and last year the figure was 1.8 million.
And so, there you are ... taxes go up, consumption drops. and
the Government finds the Treasury just as dry as before the taxes
were imposed
This means more and more taxation .... less and less
consumption of over-taxed goods. And misery and insecunty1) all
round.
+**********
In a speech at the opening of the Legislature on Februtr! '1.
1968 the Govemnor pledged, on behalf of the PIP Government n
that there would be no income tax and no independence.
Well .... independence is here. It will come on July 10th1 and
the people have been drugged into believing that it will be aI great
thing by propaganda being broadcast over ZNS.
But the day of reality will come .... and I am sorry focr y.ou
people who will have to carry the burdens of this tiew f~iued
expenditure.
And when income tax comes .... as come it now must .... that
will be the end.
**+**+*+***
All I have to say is that it is now too bad, too sad, too late.
Small wonder Mr. Pindling says he must build up a strong
police force to maintain order in the colony after independonci~i

THE DANGERS INHERENT in the development of the oil
and aragonite industries in the Bahamas were underscored by
Opposition Senator Arthur Foulkes Monday when he warned that
they could destroy the country's major breadwinner tourism.

Senator Foulkes, an
outspoken champion of
environmental protection,
pointed to the sulphur fallout
from the existing Freeport
refinery and the crude oil
wash-up on the beaches of
Harbour Island as only a
preview of what could happen
should the government persist
in encouraging the
establishment here of
ecologically harmful industries,
The damage from the big oil
spill off the California coast
two years ago still remained to
be corrected and would cost
millions, he declared.
The Bahamas, whose hidden
shoals once mnade wrecking a
thriving business, was a high
risk area. For this reason alone
the government should keep
tankers as far away from the
Bahamas as possible.
Senator Foulkes said that
people both in Florida and
Grand Bahama we re
complaining about the sulphur
fallout which affected
people and plants "and
everything that crawls and
creeps."
He reminded members that
when he was in the House he
had tried to get the
government to set up an
Environmental Department.
"What we need is a proper
department staffed with
experts, and not rely on the oil
people who will mislead us,"
he declared.
SANITARY ENGINEER
Referring to Health Minister
Loftus Roker's announcement
that his Ministry was seeking a
santiary engineer to head its
Environmental Services
Department, Senator Foulkes
questioned whether such a
person would be capable of
dealing with the problem.
He also mentioned the
by-product pollution from
merchr apumpedoint ri e ea


and by extension humlans.. In
addition the mercury tended to
upset the temperature of the
water, creating yet another
danger.
"We have toi protect what
we have at all cost." Senatir
Foulkes insisted.
Contrary to, what the
Development Mlinister might
say about falling back on
fisheries if tourism failed. there
would be no fish if the oil
people were allowed to pollute
our waters
Senator F'oulke~s drew.
particular attention to Prime
Minister Lynden Pindling's
published comment that the
Bahamas was able to solve the
United States' enrg\~r crisis.
This, he noted, was at a time
when Americans themselves
were challenging the laying of
an oil pipe line across Alaska
because it might upset the
ecology.
As for aragonite. "the
revenue we get from this. when
compared with the chances we
are taking is not worth it."
This year's estimate was
$155,000, Senator Foulkes
said.
He then referred to attempts
made to establish the industry
in Australia in the 1960s and
the reasons why tle
Australians had rejected tle
idea.
liARTH AFFIEC'TiD
Tey ha ound that the
crust of the earth might be
affected. This had been
supported by the fact that
areas in the U1.S. which had
never before experienced
earthquake tremors were now
subject to them following
heavy drilling and the creation
of artificial lakes.
Secondly, there was an

ATLANTA, Georgia, April
11 ~The 36 members of the
Royal Bahamas Police Band
could have used some of
Nassau's sunny skies during
their two-day visit to Georgia's
capital city. A downpour of
rain delayed by 24 hours the
I 97 3 Atlanta Dogwood
Festival Parade in which the
band was scheduled to appear.
Brought to Georgia by
Walter H. Bunzi, of Bunzl
TIours Inc. to promote Georgia
tourism to the Bahamnas, the
musicians had been "won" by
Bundl at Las Vegas, Nevada,
last November. The Bahamas
Ministry of Tourism offered an

newsreel footage of the

L~oc~al newspapers covered
the event, too, the major result
being a five-column
photograph in tuesday's
Atlanta Counstitut ion
newspaper and another in the


Society of Travel Agents.
Bu vi was the winner, and
elected the Atlanta Dogwood
Festival as the ideal spot in
which to feature the Bahamian
musicians. A torrential rain
made the parade, scheduled for
Saturday, impossible. It was
rescheduled for Sunday
afternoon. The band returned
to Nassau late Sunday.
From the time of their
arrival at Atlanta's IIartsfield
International Airport, the three
dozen music men from the
Bahamas were kept busy

running between the raindrops.

of opinion had come down in
favour of the prendse that
there would be no danger to
the marine life of the Bahamas.
As far as oil pollution was
concerned, Senator Foulkes
abouldap en vvar f nt whlaj
that the Bahamas could not
escape from the energy
demands of the world.
He said the Senator should
also be aware of the
International Oil Pollution
Conference to which the major
countries of the world were

pollution. The Bahamas he

The Senator thought that
two or three oil terminals
would not fall into the

proliferation."
For the purpose of pollution
it was better to know "what
ships are doing in the Bahamas
than not."
Senator Adderley pointed
out that pollution control
would involve penalties of
those who polluted Bahamian
waters.
Continuing to argue the
point under the Tourism
appropriation, Senator Foulkes

PERSPECTIVE
"An examination of the past
gives us a unique perspective tO
evaluate the relationship and
importance, if any, of one
event to another. For example,
the big news in Nassau on the
I 6th of October 1793 was that
the cutting of the rock in
Frederick Street, thereby
giving it a gradual slope to the
Bay, was contracted for, and
the expense was to be defrayed
by the voluntary subscriptions

was a sure indication of rising

"Meanwhile, in Paris on that
date, Marie Antoinette, Queen
of France, was executed. Ile
Nassau press tells us, 'Her
hands were tied behind her
back, she looked around,
apparently without much
terror, her body being then
bent forward by the machine.
the axe was let down and at
once separated her head from
her body.' While a person
develops a great attachment for
Bahamian history, if long
exposed, it's imperative we
kee~p a sense of perspective of
whateatd fyvre wedare vis-a-vis
"The Statistical Department
probably knows that in 1731
there were 120 families in New
Providence, 40 in Harbour
Island and 40 in Eleuthera. In
17155 the population of the
Bahamas, white and black was
2522. At the same time, the
population of Cuba was


160.000. In 1844, the
Bahamian population was
25 650, that of New
Providence, 8,284.
"In 1768, HRv. George
Tirard was brought to the bar
of the House of Assembly. He
had preached a sermon
reflecting on the Legislature.
Tlhe G;overnor was asked to
reprimand him. Luckily or
unluckily, as the case may be,
Governor Fitzwilliams was no
longer there because he had
said in 1734 of the House of
Assembly: Such a set of
headstrong simple
ungovernable wretches were
never convened in legislative
capacity

was a judge of the inferior

Andrew's Kirk was remodelled

iln 1903 Mr. Henry Mostyn
imported the first car into the
Bahamas, a 1902 Oldsmobile.
By the way, the first bicycle
was imported in 1867.
SALARIES
"In 1973 Bahamian MP's
should find this item
intriguing: In a then new
country, the grand total of
salaries of the officers and
clerks employed in 1817 in
Washing ton, D.C., was
$3S 1,887 per annum.
Including the President, there
were 21 different departments
or offices. In these offices
there were employed or at least
paid, 257 persons, 45
foreigners:21 Irishmen, 12
mwds Germacos, nussan3
one from Tortula and one from
Bermuda. The Bahamian report
of the day continues, 'This
shows a friendly disposition
toward foreigners, to say the
least of it, for we very much
dou bt whether another
instance can be found where a
government employs in and


about its cabinet an equal
number of foreignrsn to the
exclusrion of its native citizens.'
"The first Governor to be
born in the Bahamas was Gov.
Chas. Cameron Lees, who was
governor in 1882. His father
Sir John Lees was a former
chief justice.
"As far back as 1791 there is
a letter on file from one
Captain Griffin askingl to be
considered as Governor for
part of the Bahama Islands as
he understands they may be
partitioned. And that in July
1788, these was a letter sent to
William Pitt from the
inhabitants of Abaco to air
their grievances.

generations (your Gr. Gr.
Grandparents) you have 16
potential ancestors. If you go
back 8 generations, you have
256 potential ancestors. And
10 generations give you 1024
ancestors. One truly needs a
computer to keep all the
family relationships correct.
Thus when one says today, I
'am a Holowerko, it is only
partly true. We are the sum
total of all1 our ancestors. When
one spends a great deal of time
pursuing the birth, death and
marriage records, it's a rather
sobering experience. One,
cannot but be moved, since in
the space of a day, from the
records, one sees a man born,
marry, have children,
grandchildren, prosper, fail die,
see the family name honoured,
disappear. One has a sense of
mo ie has passed as in a
moment. I would like to teill
you about all the secrets I haVe
come across in the public
records, but my time is
finished, and if I told you, they
would no longer be secrets!
"Allow me to say In closing
that jut a historians have to
distinguish trivia from what is
worthy, we too, upon entering
nationhood, must do the same.
Ernest Bloch, the G~erman
philosopher, sarys man i

cannot be lazy or idle or
indolent in the practice of
virtue. Again for those of youe


who think in terms of getting
your money's worth,
remember you get what you
pay for, you get what you
demand. May I ask you to
demand the truth.
"We all should be gadflies,
stinging secular institutions
with consistent criticism. Many
are unable to do this, but
people like yourslves have this
responsibility. As we prepare
to start out afresh as it were, a
an independent nation, we
must not give a greater loyalty


to some lesser interest than th.
truth. The challenge of
leadership, both political and
economic, social and religious,
is to accept the unpopular and
difficult role of speaking the
truth and demanding that our
leaders do likewise."

I recently moved out of my parents' home to assume
full responsibiity for myself and my lfe.
My problem is this: I am constantly approached by
adults who ask me why I left my parents' home. When I
reply: "Because my parents have done so meeh for me
that I decided it was time I did something for them," they
look at me ike I'm crazy.
Abby, that's the way I feeL. I think the best way for
children to repay their parents for all they have doe is to
become self-supporting and self-euttlelet as soon as possi-
blIn thisda sand agpeopble uemIsed to condemning
the youth for doing something wrong, they condema than

DEAR ABBY: I was taught that if you didn't have
something, you did without it, but we have neighbors Iwho
borrow, borrow, borrow and never return anrything, and I
am sick of it.
When they moved in next door bthey aksed if they could
borrow our phone until they got theirs. Well, it has been

They started usin our baby's stroller, sad now they
use it more than we do. It's a good one which I bought
secondhand for $7 thru an ad in the newspaper, sad Oney
could get one the same way if they trid.
I won't even mention the light bulbs, cigarets, coffee,
and other things they have borrowed and never returned.
What should we do? If we wer as crude as they were

Rudyard Kipling must have
been a Bridge player. In his
famous poem, "If he spoke
of the twin imnposters. Triumph

and lofty tones that he might
well have just emerged from a
rugged dfuphecate tournament.

is removed by confronting
opposing pairs with exactly the

the way luck functions is
neither logical nor consistent.
It can be apparently
non -existent for a whole
evening, or it can run riot in a
quite unpredictable way.
In a 12-table event, for
example, you sit down at the

you are the dealer. You pull

GENERAL TENDENCIES: This indeed can be

Friday 13, but ea usl th dlner mib ai sas bitg itsa
tendency for most all of us to be touchy, exasperated and
intolerant. But if you control these impulses and use kindness
and courtesy with others, you can have a fine day p m.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) You have many duties ahead of
you, so don't rush off on any tangents, but carry through
conscientiously. Get away from some trap from persons who
like to blame others for their misfortune. Sleep well tonight.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) You are apt to look at
yourself in a wrong light, so be kind to yourself instead. Don't
spend too much money today. Make sure you do not lose your
temper with anyone and get along better.
G;EMINI (May 21 to June 21) If you get those duties
handled at home early you can relieve the tensions there. The
evening is not good for entertaining, so put it off until a better
time. Avoid one who likes to argue.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Try not to make a
mountain out of some molehill, to use the vernacular; think
before you speak and avoid trouble. Particular care in driving
and other activities saves some possible accident.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21 ) If you improve your budget, you
get rid of that feeling of lack of funds, can have security
restored. Get your property in better condition, but stay
within your budget. Use much ingenuity in so doing.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) You have to take better care
of your health if you want to get ahead faster, have more
yodl fromt osilt drs of cove your apearance. Not a good
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) You have many small tasks to
handle so get busy early on them in a conscientious and
efficient manner. Not a good day for pleasure. Postpone fun
until you have more leisure.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Try not to tease a good
friend, or an unfortunate severance of connection could result.
Have a serious, courteous manner. Put effort into gaining your
finest aims, and they are yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) With fewer outside
activities, you can now handle home affairs and improve your
appearance, too Sttever cea Itachihde p wow ts slo kng for

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) You have a new friend
who needs careful handling if you are to deepen the friendship
instead of suddenly breaking it off. You have real tact and can
now use it wisely. Get good results with everyone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) With all that work ahead
of you, get at it early and clear it up quickly and efficiently.
Don't run off on any tangents. Take better care of your
wardrobe and make sure you do not ruin it by careless action.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) This is a good day to have a
good talk with an associate and get right results therefrom.
Plan how to get agreements worked out more efficiently A
little astuteness can be most wise now.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY .he or she will be
one of those inordinately clean young people who has to have
order around him or her, but teach early not to insult others
by pointing out their lack in such matters, otherwise your
offspring can become a recluse and not popular at all. This can
be a good chart for a nurse, whether male or female, the
teacher, or the secretary, the office worker, etc Do not force
sports on this person early. Care in diet.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

Johnson goes to Miamin on

Concerning Pinder's bout
against Slick Mitchell on
Friday night. Mr. G;oldstein
said that Rennie was not as
sharp as he should have been.
However, Mitchell is the type
of fighter that makes his
opponent look bad. "But a
manager has to feel pleased ~
when his fighter scores a
knockout," he said. Yet, two
or three warmup fights will put
Pinder in top shape, he added.
Mr. Goldstein also
announced that he is presently
negotiating a title match

MIany of the problems with
foreign investors were brought
on by what critics say was the
high-handed manner in which
the country's immigration
policies were carried out by
Arthur D. Hanna, the
controversial deputy prime
minister and former minister of
homet affairs.
"Hlanna wanted to drive out
all expatriates," says a leading
opposition member, Norman
Solomon. "I think the fact that
most of them were white
Americans, Canadians or
Europeans was immaterial."
In February, Pindling finally
stepped in. A sweeping Cabinet
reorganization wrested direct
control of immigration policies
from Hanna.
