'Remarkable wisdom' of
THE PARLIAMENTS of the
Commonwealth countries have
a "remarkable store of
wisdom" in today's
fast-moving world scene, said
Britain's Secretary of State for
Trade and Industry, Mr. Peter
Walker, Monday in a speech of
welcome to delegates to the
19th annual conference of the
The conference is being held
in London for the first time
since Britain's entry into the
European Community and the
effect of British membership
on the Commonwealth will be
one of the prime talking
points. The first session on
Thursday will be on the subject
of the enlarged community and

parliamentarians and respect
for parliamentary institutions.
Speaking in the royal gallery
of Westminster Hall, London,
to the 212 delegates, and
observers from Commonwealth
national, state and provincial
parliaments, Mr. Walker gave
four major reasons why Britain
would be a stronger trading
partner of the Commonwealth
in the years immediately
First, British entry into
Europe had coincided with
Britain enjoying a rate of
industrial expansion better
than any other member of the
European community apart
from France. Britain had also
influenced the community to
be outward looking and the
community would begin
negotiations on the general
agreement on tariffs and trade
(GATT) with a view to
extending Furope's trade with
b oth developed and developing
Second, said Mr. Walker, was
that the massive increase in raw
material prices during the past
year, the biggest in history,
would transform the prospects
of the economies of a range of
primary producers. These
nations would now be able to
achieve faster economic
growth. They would need the
machinery and markets that
Britain could provide.
Third was the discovery of
North Sea oil, which,
"combined with the proper use
of our coal resources and the
faster development of nuclear
energy, puts Britain in a unique
position as far as the provision
of energy is concerned at the
commencement of a phase in
history where the energy
supplies will have a fast
The fourth reason, he went
on, was that Britain had started
an investment revival
illustrated by a round of
announcements from major
industries. The steel industry
was embarking on a three
thousand million pound
investment programme; the
biggest motor manufacturer
had announced the biggest
expansion in the history of the
British motor industry;
shipbuilding and aviation and
engineering industries too were
all bringing forward plans for
Mr. Walker went on:
"Added to this as important
spheres for the future are
supersonic flight, nuclear
energy and environmental
engineering. British technology
in these fields is developing
perhaps faster than any other
nation in the world."
The licences of G.'. Sichel

In the case of the previous
seven, the Monetary Authority
and the Ministry of Finance
acted only after depositors
discovered they could not
withdraw funds on demand.
In the present instance, it is
understood, the Monetary
Authority stepped in before
such a situation could arise.
An informed source said the
liquidity of the three banks
was found to be unsatisfactory
prompting the decision to
revoke their licences.
The procedure now would
be for the managers of the
banks to apply to the courts
for appointment of a

their business in the Bahamas.

ARMED FORCES STRIKE
in Chile today
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina, Sept. 11 (AP)- The Chilean
armed forces said today they have toppled Marxist President
Salvador Allende and were preparing to remove him forcibly from
his palace, radio reports said.
The announcement, in
communique number five read
over a hastily assembled
official national network.
followed others that asked the
public to remain calm and stay
It came only hours after the
top military leaders formed a
junta and demanded that
Allende voluntarily resign the
post to which he was elected in
Chile closed its airports and
borders and cut off exterior
communications during the
fast-paced developments in
Santiago. Meanwhile a
segment of sailors and marines
who mutined in Valparaiso
early today apparently held
that vital central port.
Allende, in an early response
to the officers, said, "I am here
and I will remain here
defending the government
elected by the workers... I will
not resign. I won't do it."
Later, however, an air force
plane attacked and silenced
one radio station loyal tc
Allende, and troops destroyed
another, radio reports said.
The network broadcasting
from Chile played lively
martial music as the military's
noon deadline approached.

time to peacefully evacuate the
palace before they attacked,

EDITORIAL I Asks leaders to change attitude I FPTFMIIFRFyi SAf I
By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(IFour days ago I quoted passages from a speech on business
and economic growth made by Anthony Thompson, manager of
the Bahamas .Monetary Authority, at the ninth conference of the
Caribbean Federation of Mental Health. Yesterday I told you two
stories of business development in New York and London. Today
I will tell rou how The Tribune grew from a small business into
what it is today.)
In writing a story about anything it is always most effective
when a writer can record his own experiences. And so today I will
tell you the story of how The Tribune grew from a small business
into a major operation.
It was never intended that The Tribune should become a big
business Indeed, for over half a century it was regarded as a
mission, not a business. Now it is both a mission and a business.
When my father launched this enterprise in 1903 he took as his
motto an old Latin quotation which, translated into English,
reads: "Being bound to swear to the dogmas of no master "
It would seem impossible to relate such a bold and challenging
motto to cold-blooded business where the only concern is to turn
a profit, the bigger the better.
The whole purpose of The Tribune was to serve a cause...and,
within thie framework of the then social structure of the islands,
it would be impossible to maintain the standards set by this
motto and make money too. But 70 years lrter we have shuwn
that it could be done ... and it has been done
My father faced his first challenge soon after The Tribune was
launched with a tiny tread!.C press and a case of type. Nothing
could be smaller. But, despite the sma!lncss of the operation, he
had actually accumulated 80 pounds sterling in the bank when an
issue came up that concerned the coloured people of the islands.
l ighty pounds in those days was considered a great pile of
It would be a mistake to regard this newspaper as representing
any race, creed o: colour in the Bahamas. Throughout its life it
has stood for what it considered right and honest and fair. This is
shown by the fact that we are now fighting "prejudice in
In this case "right" was on the side of the coloured people and
mi father went to bat for them.
One night the leader of the Old Guard power bloc sent for him.
I his man had been his friend and had helped him to make his
small operation profitable.
"Leon," lie said to my father, "you have to make up your
mind where you belong. You are either with us or against us. You
know w lhat that meanss"
My father knew what that meant and so he went back home to
tmy mother with this ultimatum. He felt he could not make a
stand without her full support.
"Leon." she told hinm, "we must always stand for what is right
and fair in The Tribune We will fail the whole purpose of our
eftfot if we start bargaining with anyone on any question."
My father was greatly influenced by my mother who was a
strong woman. They made a perfect team. He was a strong man
but a man with a mission can only survive with the support and
inspir.ition of a strong woman.
On that day the die was cast.
And from that day The Tribune had a struggle to survive.
My mother died in 1909 without compromising her faith in
truth and justice. She was only 36.
And when my father died in 1914 The Tribune had made very
little physical progress...and it was in debt. He was only 44.
Both their hearts, with other complications, had cracked under
I was then 15 years of age and my older brother Gilbert headed
the family but my father had made me promise him on his
deathbed tha: I would carry on the work he started. He seemed
to sense that I would have the strength to follow in his footsteps.
I promised him but I didn't want this job. I was afraid of it. I
hlad seen what my father and mother had endured in their battle
fi, just causes...receiving only ingratitude and an exhibition of
cow ardice frotmi the people for whom they made sacrifices.
At the age of 17 I volunteered for service in the British army
overseas and went to the battle line on the Eastern and Western
trionts. I was away three years.
When I returned to Nassau at the age of 20 The Tribune was
hare\s breathing. My brother Gilbert a gentle and kind man
had carried it on but he was an artist and he didn't have the
stomach for this kind of work...and so I took over the editorial.
All our concern was fixeti on maintaining a strong editorial
policy. No consideration was given to business. We ignored
imoniey even to the point of being contemptuous of it.
And then in 1o29 I met my future wife in Pennsylvania on my
wa\ to Minnesota. We got married on my way back to Nassau.
I warned her of thIe hard life that lay ahead' of her in the
Bahama, if she became my wife. She accepted the challenge.
I lThe town was growing fast. It was leaving us behind. We had to
dio something about our antiquated machinery or drop out of the
We decided to install a high speed flat-bed press with rolls. This
was something new for Nassau.
Thie factory sent a man to Nassau to instal it. We provided
labour to do the heavy work.
It wasn't until the installation had been completed that I
realized that we didn't have an operator. I talked with the man
florm thie factory. Hie said he couldn't help but that one of the
labourers who had worked with him on the installation seemed a
This was a six shilling a day man. I hired him. But from the
very start tins press gave so much trouble that it was the first
Ind oml\ time in my life that I felt defeated.
One night I walked out of the office, a broken man, on the
verge of a nervous breakdown.
I told my wife I wa.s through...l just couldn't go through
another day with that machine. I was quitting. My wife went
back to the office and saw the day's work through.
That night she talked with me.
"You need a qualified mechanic for that press." she said;
"Where are we going to find such a person and what'are we
going to pay him with?". I asked.
The next day I talked with a qualified man who was a friend of
mine. lie agreed to come oil the staff at 20 pounds sterling a
At that time the highest paid man on my staff was receiving
only three pounds a week. That was also all I gave my wife to run
our household with six young children. And so I hesitated. Three
pounds at that time was worth less than $9.00.
"I don't see how we can do it." I told my wife, "we'll go

Immigration to destroy the

We quickly made more money, we paid better salaries, and we
got better staff.
When a friend of mine saw the strides we were making he
suggested that I needed a good accounting department.
At that time we didn't have even an ordinary bookkeeper on
the staff. We had a girl who sent out bills and I was perfectly
satisfied as long as more money was coming in than was going
out. And so I laughed at the suggestion.
But every time this friend met me he pressed the suggestion.
"Why don't you have an auditor in to advise you on what you
need?", he urged.
When I inquired and found that an auditor's services would
cost six hundred pounds I decided that this was ridiculous.
But my friend kept pressing and finally I agreed.
I was shocked by the auditor's report which showed how I was
losing thousands of pounds a year through waste, incompetence
I immediately commissioned him to set up an accounting
department at The Tribune. He installed a very high priced
chartered accountant at our office. This man proceeded to save
the firm thousands of pounds a year. This made it possible for us
to engage more qualified staff.
When my daughter, Mrs. Carron, came home 12 years ago
with a degree in philosophy, a degree in journalism and a degree
in law, people were impressed.
Many people said that she must surely be the most highly
educated Bahamian. She probably was at that time because, in
addition to her university work, she had spent a summer in Paris
learning French, a summer in New York on the staff of The New
York Times, she had travelled through the Far East with some of
the world's leading Editors, and she had met many of my
important friends in many parts of the world.
She had indeed a very broad education but when she joined
The Tribune staff I was shocked to find that she had no idea of
business...not a single clue.
But she learned from our expatriate staff, especially from an
English Financial Comptroller we had with us five years ago. This
man had been Financial Comptroller of the African State of
Zambia handling hundreds of millions of pounds a year and so he
also had a grasp of international business and finance.
By the time the government refused to renew his work permit
two years ago he had set uip an efficient department for us...and
my daughter had become a fully qualified business woman. I
realized then that she was more capable of managing the Tribune
than I and so I handed over complete control to her. Today I
write this column for her...that's all. This is why my prese :e in
Nassau is no longer required.
Two ycung Bahamians one black, one white who were in
England taking accountancy, spent their summer holidays on our
staff and had the great advantage of working under this man who
taught them things no university can impart to a student.
With the foundation training one of the young women in his
department received from him, she will enter a university in the
U.S. in September to take an Executive Secretarial course.
I tell this story to show that the government over emplia-
sizes the importance of a university degree.
A university degree is only a preparation for life. At this point
a student only starts to learn how to apply the principles he was
taught at university. This is a testing period because many of
them never learn the practical ways of life...and so they fail

go through hell and high water with me...and we later produced a

the owner of a business needs to gather around him men and
women who are capable of carrying out plans and stimulating
A business will stagnate...and ultimately die...under conditions
where a government lays down a rule forcing business men to

And so vir. Thompson was absolutely right when hIe said in hiis

the chief cause of business failures in the Bahamas."

Also, he never lets his wife go anywhere alone. He has

he starts accusing her of seeing other men. In other words,
they get jealous because they can't perform as well them-
Men retire, but we middle-class wives continue to do
our regular housework because of our limited income,
which has been worsened by inflation.

TRAPPED IN FORT MEYERS
DEAR ABBY: Yes, I have a problem. How does a
senior citizen find a place to live? Had my name in for one
project for two years, and the building started to sink.
Applied to get into another and was told they were filled,
and had a waiting list of 500, Something should be done
about housing for us. I'm not ready for a nursing home yet.
DEAR ABBY: I'm 75, and a widower. I made my first
trip to a foreign country at age 70. At 71, I started making
my own sourdough bread, and now I can't stand bakery
bread. At 73, I started making my own jellies and jams. I
enjoy life because I keep active.
I've sent for a copy of the LIVING WILL, thanks to
you I wish to live, but I am not interested in existing.
F. E. W., KENT, WASH.
DEAR ABBY: I'm a widow in my sixties, nice figure,
and I'm told I'm attractive. Ly problem is finding a GOOD
man. They either drink too much and want sex, or they're
too old. One older man wanted to marry me. He said:
"You buy the house, Honey. and I'll cut the grass." He
could hardly walk two blocks, so I'm wondering how he
could cut the grass. WINTER PARK, FLORIDA
DEAR ABBY: We are both 77 years old, and have been
married 53 years. First we liked each other, then we loved
each other, and now we adore each other. Our problem?
We would like to die together.

DEAR ABBY: I try not to think about it, but my

My grandchildren are no better. They send presents once in

senior citizens who wrote in by the thousands!
DEAR READERS: Last weekend, in all humility and
with no intended irreverence to Moses, I published my
"TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR WIVES." Here is the com-
panion piece, "TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR HUSBANDS."
1. Thou shalt put thy wife before thy mother, thy fa-
ther, thy daughter, and thy son, for she is thy life-
2. Abuse not thy body either with excessive food, tobac-
co, or drink, that thy days may be many and health-
ful in the presence of thy loved ones.
3. Permit neither thy business, nor thy hobby to make
of thee a stranger to thy children, for the most
precious gift a man giveth his family is his time.
4. Forget not the virtue of cleanliness.
5. Make not thy wife a beggar, but share willingly with

6. Forget not to say, "I love you." For even t thy
love be constant, thy wife doth year to hear-the
7. Remember that the approval of thy wife is rwth
more than the admiring glances of a hundred strang-
ers. Cleave unto her, and forsake all others. -
8. Keep thy home In good repair, for out of It eeett
the joys of thy old age.
9. Forgive with grace. For who among us does ut
need to be forgiven?

thy children will rise up and call thee blessed.

'In Camera'--a powerful & sensitive production
By Elizabeth Nathaniels.
Just as Voltaire is
remembered for that bagatelle
of a philosophical short story,
Candide, so probably will the
great French philosopher of our
time, Jean Paul Sartre, be
remembered for the short
one-act play called Huis Clos.
Translated as In Camera, or No
Exit or Vicious circle). So also,
I hope it will be remembered in
Nassau that the Theatre
Workshop Company made
their debut in two
performances of this
fascinating play held on Friday
and Saturday last week.
The theatre Workshop
Company directed by
Bahamian actor. Cedric Scott,
differs from other drama
groups in Nassau in its aim
towards professionalism, its
members meeting regularly to
practise their art in workshop
Their first production was
proceeded by some excellent
songs by Patrick Rahming and
Derek Burrows and dance by
Edward "Pepe" Johnson in the
somewhat incongruous but
intimate setting of the Colony
Room of the Montagu Beach
Hotel, with occasional tourist
sounds of calypso wafting
through from outside.
Here, we were treated to a
stunning performance in which
one of the four actors achieved
an almost totally professional
and satisfying character
portrayal, and an overall
performance which was only
marred by too much music at
the beginning, some
un evenness of character
portrayal, a few forgotten lines
and by the far from perfect
translation of Stuart Gilbert's.
Huis Clos is a one act play
set in hell. The classical unities
of time, place and action are
perfectly observed. The action
and dialogue flow without
break at all. Hell, in Satre's
witty and often cynical way, is
seen as a Second Empire
drawing room, designed
especially for three people who
detest Second Empire drawing
rooms. Instead of being
bothered by an "official
torturer" the three discover a
splendid and diabolical
economy "It's obvious what
they're after -" says the
intellectual Inez" ..an economy
of man power .. or devil power
if you prefer. The same idea is
in a cafeteria where customers
They are doomed, as they
gradually discover, to spend
eternity torturing each other.
Each feels a kind of hatred and
repugance for one and a kind
of yearning or lust for the
other, forming a perfect vicious
Garcin, the self doubting
woud be idealist and journalist
turns to the strong and
far-sighted lesbian lnez who, in
her turn despises Garcin and is
only interested in the pretty
Estelle, a nymphomaniac
lusts for Garcin who in his turn
Each has sinned
spectacularly, but at first the
two weaker characters try to
hide the Jruth of their death
and reasons for their
damnation with euphemism
and half-truth. "I'm wondering
if there hasn't been some
ghastly mistake" exclaims
Estelle, the social butterfly
who has murdered her baby.
The almost terrible
fascination of the play, apart
from its tight-knit structure, is
its similarity to everyday life.
The irony and bite lies in the
uncomfortable closeness to
mundave reality., everywhere
in groups such as families,
people of differing tastes and
ideals are forced to live
together, torturing each other
for life, fearing freedom even
when it is offered to them.
And, just as Candide concludes
that cultivating one's own
garden is the cynical answer to
the terrible realities of the
world, so Garcin's "Hell is
other people" faces up to an
even more cynical truth.
The whole setting is behind
closed doors, hence Huis Clos,
In Camera or No Exit. (The
title was completely
misunderstood by the
incidentally who depicted a
photographic camera on the
cover of the programme!) Yet,
at one point, the door opens,
after Garcin has battered on it,
screaming to be let out and
no-one leaves. All of them have
wanted to leave the room, yet
they discover, as Pat Rahming
observed in one of his songs
earlier in the evening
"Freedom is a state of mind."
They all stay, not only because
they fear the unknown but
because they are inextricably
bound together, emotionally
and psychologically. Garcin
feels he must eventually woo
the admiration of Inez and
"save" her was well, lnez seeks
the domination of Estelle and
Estelle lusts for Garcin. With
this witty setting and device,
Jean Paul Sartre explores one
of the central problems of
What did the cast of two
Bahamians and two Britons
make of it all? They made a
great deal and studied every
meaning of every sentence,
etchinginto relief every nuance
of irony, pathos and humour.
The nearest to a perfect
professional performance was
that of Angela Scott, whose
lesbian Inez, was superb, in spite
of frequent promptings. Every
twist of her hardened mouth,
her firm voice clearly
enunciating the harsh truth, all
rang true with an inner power
and conviction. She was every
inch the part she played and
commanded the stage
As for the others, while
Dennis Manuel's performance
as the valet was suitably
laconic and down-to-earth (but
were those stutterings and
hesitations intentional or
not?), both Winston Saunders
and Sue Full would, I think tie
for second place, after Angela.
However. Winston Saunders,
powerful actor though he is,
does not really convince us
that he is a South American
journalist, tortured by self
doubt, not merely because of
the oddity of white painted
dark skin, but because his
character portrayal frequently
slips. He forgets his neurotic
twichings, for instance, in
confrontations with other
characters and on one or two
occasions becomes thoroughly
Bahamian and every inch,
Winston Saunders. ("So you
think I'm a member of the
staff, eh?" says he with pure
Bahamian accent and lilt). His
Garcin is too contrived, too
hard-work and the
tremendous efforts of the
beginning cannot be sustained.
I think that here, an
imaginative changing from the
original character would have
been in order. I would have
applauded Cedric Scott, and
so, I think, would have Sartre,
if, as a suitable vehicle for
Wintson's power and passion,
the character of G(;arcin could
have been changed into that of
say a Civil Rights leader or a
West Indian politician. Such a
man could have easily been as
torn by self doubt and as

objection, to refer the application to the Council's Committee on the Admission of New
Members for examination and report. On the following day the Council unanimously
recommended that the General Assembly admit the Bahamas. All members of the Council
made statements after the vote congratulating the Bahamas on its independence and
extending their best wishes to it. Pictured above at the July 17 meeting are: Kenneth
Jamieson (United Kingdom), president of the Council, making a statement. At centre is
Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim and at left is Viktor L. Issraelyan (Soviet Union).

"Tensions were high and
nerves were on edge," noted
Higgs as the golfers teed it up
on Wednesday morning and
after the first round. Trinidad
and Tobago had taken a
commanding lead of eight
shots over the favourites
Jamaica, and defending champs
Puerto Rico. The latter team
played without one of their
top golfers Carl James. The
Bahamas then took fifth spot
with a 324.
On the second day, Jamaica
with 617, took. a one stroke
lead over Trinidad and Tobago
while Puerto Rico fell nine
strokes behind with 627. Thle
Bahamas then still maintained
fifth place with a score of A47.
Trinidad and Tobago on the
third day were unable to
capture the one stroke lead
which Jamaica still held on to
with 926 after three rounds.
Trinidad neserthele-, were
consistent in their work and as
the pressure apparently go too
much for the host team they
shot a strong 306 taking the
victory by four strokes.
It is well known that as years go by many
men lose much of the zest and vigour
they enjoyed when young. Now there
is good news for those who are -
feeling "low" or without zip.
