ork stoppage



A THREE-HOUR WALKOUT by hotel union staff hit eight major hotels in
Nassau and Paradise Island this morning causing inconvenience to guests while an
emergency hotel employers meeting was hurriedly called.


Reasons for the work
stoppage at the Sheraton-Brit-
ish Colonial Hotel, Sonesta
Beach, Nassau Beach. Emerald
Beach, Blue Vista, Holiday Inn,
Britannia Beach and Loews
Paradise Island hotels are still
not known, although most
hotels reported workers back
on the job by 11 o'clock.
Coming at a time when some
large convention groups are
presently in Nassau the work
stoppage was seen by observers
as a hardening of the Bahamas
Hotel and Catering Workers
Union's demands for a new
wage settlement with the Hotel
Employers Association.
Officers of the union were
closetted in meetings most of
the day and made no statement
to the press on the situation.
EMERGENCY ME LTING
Most of the hotel
management staff refused
comment to the press jih-..ugLh
some admitted they had
"absolutely no idea" what had
sparked the stoppage.


FNM leadeL faces, punishing PLP


The Employers Associ-
ation met in a hurriedly
called "emergency executive
committee meeting" shortly
after it was determined that
the work stoppage was
widespread.
The Association's executive
director Trevelyan Cooper was
called to the Sonesta Beach
shortly after 7 o'clock this
morning and at first thought
the work stoppage to be an
isolated incident. "I soon
found out that it wasn't," he
told The Tribune.
The eight hotels that were
hit were taken by surprise and
some. like the Sonesta, had to
improvise a buffet breakfast
for guests without any kitchen
staff.
The wildcat strike was
reported to be "not wholly
effective." In some hotels
about 45 percent of the staff
staN ed off the job, but in
others, like those at Paradise
Island, it was reported that 75
perVent of the staff took part.
Management hurriedly did
what they could to provide
breakfast for guests and most
reported that "guests were very
little inconvenienced on the


attack on his 'no violence' statement Insurance briefings


By NICK KELLY
FNM LEADER KENDAL ISAACS was last night subjected to the most punishing attack of his
political career when he was accused of attempting to clear himself and his party of any
involvement in the murder of 25-year-old FNM supporter Barry Major.


Major, whose killers were
convicted last week, was shown
to have been murdered in
gangland fashion by FNM
supporters during last year's
general election campaign. The
murder, according to court
witnesses, was said to have
been planned in the office for
former FNM Leader Cecil
Wallace Whitfield.
Yesterday Mr. Isaacs, as
Leader, issued a statement to
the press abhoring the use of
violence and calling on all
political leaders to "disavow
and eradicate" such actions
[9 See story page 71
That Mr. Isaacs should have
chosen this moment to issue
such an appeal, unleashed a
flow of castigation from Marsh
Harbour representative
Errington Watkins. A former
FNM, Mr. Watkins now
expends most of his energy
attacking Mr. Isaacs.
Government members cane
to the House also obviously
well-prepared for a scathing
attack on the Opposition that
lasted for three hours.
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling and Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur Hanna both
repeatedly referred to
newspaper clips from last
year's papers. But the pivot for
the attack were the remarks of
Mr. Watkins, made on the
motion for adjournment.
CONFESSION?
"I was disturbed all morning
after reading the Leader's
statement," he declared. "Is
this a confession of guilt? What
is he trying to say? Is he saying
'forgive us for we knew not
what we did' or is he trying to
throw the blame somewhere
else? "
Vehemently asserting that
Mr. Isaacs owed the country an
explanation, Mr. Watkins said
he could not envision that the
political situation in the
country today could be of such
magnitude or of such a nature

that political leaders would
condone their voters
supporting, preaching or
desiring violence.
"Politics is a dirty game they
say, but it can only be as dirty
as the people who play it," he
slammed. "When you find the
Leader of the Opposition
coming out with a statement
like this, where does this leave
ius'.'"
Taking up the debate, the
Prime Minister described the
matter as the "most serious
this Ilouse has had occasion to
discuss."
compounding g the problem
were the statements made by
[NM representative Norman
Solomon in his column "As I
See It," published the same
morning.
"[he whole context of his
article appeared damnable
because it appeared to be
attempting to spread the blame
to the people of the Bahamas,"
Mr. Pindling declared.
"He claims that everyone in
the country had a drop of
Major's blood on his hands. I
don't know how he could have
come to that conclusion. If he
had said the FNM shared in it,
then one would be able to
understand."
HYPOCRITICAL
lie described the article as
hypocritical, because Mr.
Solomon himself "supported
and advocated a policy of
violence based on the
philosophy of 'you slam my
back I slap your belly.' "
"Now, said Mr. Pindling, "he
is decrying the end result of
that policy carried out by his
party."
He claimed Mr. Solomon's
article appeared to be putting
forth every possible excuse and
justification for the crime, but
what possible excuse could
there be?
"The Leader (Mr. lIsaacs) has
emphasized that it is past time
that leaders of political parties
disavow violence. I agree with
that statement, but again the
burden of responsibility rests.
with the members of this
House to set the example for
the citizens of this country to
follow."
And in an obvious reference


to election remarks by former
FNM Leader Cecil Wallace
Whitfield, Mr. Pindling asked
who it was who had threatened
to "prosecute them straight to
jail."
Who, he added, had shown
himself to be the most
"biggety" of them all. and who
had the capacity to be a
dictator?
Questioning Mr. Whitfield's
sincerity in visiting Major's
widow and family, the Prime
Minister found it curious that a
Tribune photographer should
be at the scene at the same
time.
He also wondered how

whole."
What settlement was made
with the union to get the
workers back to work is not
known. No spokesman for the
union was available for
comment.
The Association also refused
comment. It was understood
that the Labour Minister might
be making some statement on
the matter later today and the
Association said they "would
like to see what he has to say
first" before commenting.
Last week the union gave
Labour Minister Clifford
Darling notice that they would
not negotiate with the hotel
Association until their
proposals for wage increases
were dealt with. The
Association has said it will only
deal with the salary review
after the working conditions
package offered by the
Association has been
considered.
On Monday the Chief
Industrial Officer replied to the
union's Nov. 7 letter to Mr.
Darling that reported a trade
dispute between the union and
the Association.
MINISTRY LETTER
In it Mr. Lambert Parker
said, while "you have indicated
ttiat there are two issues
involved in the dispute viz: (1)
failure on the part of the
Association to submit a wage
proposal, and (2) failure to
reach agreement on the
effective date for salary/wage
increase: you have not
indicated whether or not your
own negotiating machinery .has
been fully utilized."
The letter urged the union
to "meet with the Association
in an effort to settle your
differences" and added,
"should you fail to reach a
settlement you should then
notify my Minister of such
failure after which my Ministry
will endeavour to secure a
settlement by means of
conciliation."
It is believed that the receipt
of this letter by the union may
well have been the cause for
today's hotel stoppage.

of Barry Majoi
OPPOSITION LEADER
Kendal Isaacs last night
disclaimed any knowledge of
the murder of Barry Major or
of any crimes committed by
the FNM during last year's
election campaign.
Answering accusations, and
innuendos hurled at him for
three hours, Mr. Isaacs told
members of the House that "if
I am to accept any blame as a
member of the FNM, then
every person who was then a
member of the FNM must
accept blame."
He said he was prepared to
stand on the "non-violence"
statement he had made
publicly that morning to the
press. "I made no attempt to
excuse or justify the murder of
Mr. Major.
"There is no question in my
mind that the killing was
connected with politics, but
what I am saying is that certain
members are a little guilty of
hypocrisy to suggest that only
the FNM indulged in violence.
"I am not saying that th,"
PLP or the member for Marsh
Harboul (Errington Watkins)
or anybody zele is guilty of
murder or inciting to murder.
What I am saying is that we


's murder
were plagued with violence
during the 1972 election
campaign that did ,not begin
with that campaign but went
further back."
Mr. Isaacs contended that
there was violence on the part
of both PLP and FNM.
Therefore "the PLP must not
.be heard to say that they and
their supporters were not
guilty of certain serious acts of
violence."
NOT VIOLENT
He was not a violent man, he
said. Ile had been accused of
being weak. but he didn't
mind. "There are certain things
I believe in and I intend to act
in accordance with my beliefs,
regardless of what pressures are
brought on me," Mr. Isaacs
declared.
The facts surrounding
Major's death had come as a
great shock to him, he said,
and to many of his colleagues.
He was aware that certain
intelligence was available to the
police, and if they had
information that he had been
implicated in the murder he
would have been questioned.
"If members prefer to
believe I was implicated they

LA JOLLA- Actress
Elizabe-th Taylor is

what hospital officials
describe as "a routine annual

Miss Taylor entered the
hospital last Friday and is
expected to remain for
several more days.

A DOMINICAN woman has
been convicted in federal
court of smuggling aliens into
the United States.
The woman, Mrs.
Altagracia Perez Caraballo,
was found guilty of altering
passports to smuggle non-U.S.
residents into the Virgin
Islands, an American
territory. According to
authorities, she charged
$400 for each passport
change.

SENATE and House of
representatives conferees
agreed on a $2.39-billion
foreign aid authorization.
The total is nearly 500
million, under President
Nixon's request for the 12
months ending next June 30.

THE JOINT conference
committee of the U.S. Senate
and House of Representatives
removed congressional strings
holding up the cancellation of
$2 billion of the $3 billion in
Indian rupees held by the
United States in payment for
sales of wheat and other food
grains to India.
A provision requiring
congress to vote its specific
approval of any settlement
for less than the full amount
of the sales of surplus foods
was struck out of the $2.39
billion dollar foreign aid bill.

FOR THE second
consecutive day a major
Soviet newspaper has
expressed concern that
Russian-American detente
may be derailed by
"reactionary circles" in the
United States.
Pravda asserted that a
majority of Americans favour
detente but "reactionary
circles..have tried to use the
recent events in the Middle
East to whip up a military
psychosis, to inflate the
Pentagon's budget and to
expand military aid to the
Israeli extremists."

Space walk to a comet
CAPE CANAVERAL Space Agency officials report
everything is "go" for launching the Skylab 3 astronauts
tomorrow on man's longest space voyage.
The countdown for the 85-day mission progressed smoothly
toward a liftoff at 09:01 a.m. est Friday. The weather forecast is
for partly cloudy skies and light winds.
Astronauts Gerald Carr, William Pogue and Eward Gibson will
be thrust, together with their Apollo ferry ship to a link-up with
the 85-ton Skylab space station, which is orbiting unmanned 270
miles above the earth.
If they remain aboard 85 days, they will break by nearly a
month the present space endurance mark of 59!/2 days held by the
Skylab 2 crew.
During man's third and final visit to the laboratory,
Commander Carr and his crew are to conduct earth resources,
medical solar astronomy and other experiments.
They also are carrying up special instruments to take a look at
the comet Kohoutek as it streaks in from deep space and loops
around the sun in late December.
From their vantage point above earth's obscuring atmosphere
they may help answer questions that have puzzled astronomers
for centuries: What is a comet? What is it made of? Where does it
come from?
Two space walks are planned specifically to observe
Kohoutek. One walk is on Christmas Day, the other on Dec. 26.

bombers

jailed

for life
WINCHESTER Eight
members of an Irish
Republican Army bomb squad,
convicted of launching a terror
Blitz on London last
March, were jailed for life
today.
A Winchester Crown Court
hearing was constantly
interrupted during the
sentencing by shouts and jeers
from sympathizers in the
public gallery and from the
dock. At one stage the public
gallery was partially cleared.
The eight, including two
young sisters who led the-
bombing expedition, were
found guilty yesterday of
exploding two car bombs
which killed one man and
injured 216 people.
They had pleaded innocent,
though admitting membership
in the IRA, the guerilla group
fighting to oust the British
from Northern Ireland.
A ninth member of the
group, who admitted the
charges, got 15 years.
The hearing took place
against a tense background of
possible IRA reprisals.
Scotland Yard said it was
tipped off that the IRA
planned to grab hostages in a
bid to free the eight.
Those found guilty were
Dolours Price, 22, leader of the
London bombers, and her
sister Marian, 19, both student
teachers at St. Mary's College,
Belfast; Robert Walsh; Gerald
Kelly; Martin Brady; William
Armstrong; Hugh Feeney, and
Paul Holmes. All are from

GOLD STEADIES,


DOLLAR UP


LONDON The price of
gold steadied today after
yesterday's sharp plunge in
European bullion markets. The
U.S. dollar was stronger in
foreign exchanges.
Gold dropped more than
five dollars an ounce yesterday
on fears that governments
would soon dump their massive
holdings of the precious metal
on the open market.
The fears were raised by
U.S. federal reserve chairman
Arthur Burns announcement
that seven governments had
abandoned the two-tier market
system and taken the right of
selling gold freely.
The price of the metal was
$1.25 an ounce higher at
$91.25 in London but a dollar
lower at $90 in Zurich. It
improved slightly in Frankfurt.
Trading was described as
moderate.
The Times of London,
meanwhile, suggested that the
ending of the two-tier gold
system may have been meant
to persuade the Arab countries
"to keep up the oil flow."
The Times said the United
States as well as European
countries were alarmed by the
huge accumulation of dollars
by the Arab producers in oil
revenues.
By taking the right to sell
gold freely, the western
consumer nations acquired
greater flexibility and the
possibility of offering the
Arabs the gold they prefer if
oil is kept flowing.


The dollar reached 2.60
marks in Frankfurt, up slightly
from Wednesday's 2.597S. In
Paris, the dollar moved up to
4.43 francs In Zurich, though,
the dollar eased from 3.1925
Swiss francs to 3.1795. The
British pound declined in
London slightly to $2.39075
from 2.3975.(AP).

JACK PAAR


NEW YORK Jack Paar, the
man who made late-hour
laughter, outrage and insomnia
a national habit, tonight makes
what he says probably will be
his last appearance on
television.
"I've been in this business
since I was 16 years old and
I've worked awfully hard....and
now I'm leaving with no regrets
and no excuses," said the
55-year-old performer.
His "Jack Paar Tonite" on
ABC, begun last January, is
ending tonight, both at Paar's
request and because it failed to
dent the high ratings of NBC's
'Tonight" show ratings he
first .established as the
outspoken, unpredictable star
of that program from 1957 to
1962.
He said he won't make a big
deal tonight about goodbyes.
"No," he laughed.
slipping into a stage whisper,
"the quieter we go the better.
Just sneak away."
He was in a cheerful
philosophical mood and didn't
blame his show's failure on
ratings. He blamed it on station
numbers, noting that
"Tonight" ; on 220 stations
and his shob' on only 162.
"It doesn't matter what you
do, ABC cannot make it
against that kind of lineup," he
said. He said he has no plans to
return to TV, but it isn't
because his show didn't work
out.
"1 have absolutely no desire
to be in television, and I didn't,
foet the last year, want to be in

Fuel rationing: threat grows


WASHINGTON Energy
planners intend to send the
president proposals within two
or three weeks for immediate
rationing of home heating oil, a
key official said.
He said proposals for
rationing gasoline may be
submitted in about one month.
The administration has been
developing a gasoline rationing
plan using ration coupons
managed through some 6,000
local boards.
Gasoline ration levels have
not been determined, but
government officials have been
thinking, so far, in terms of
about 10 to 15 gallons per
week, per motorist, a range-
which may change drastically
once all the calculations are
finished.
At a press briefing yesterday
the White House repeated that
President Nixon and Treasury
Secretary George Shultz view
gasoline rationing only as a last
resort.
An official who declined to
be identified also said President
Nixon "would like us to avoid

EDITORIAL


An exercise in memory


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the third article in a series I am writing on the late
George Murphy an Irish-American who became a British subject
and was one of the pioneers in the development of Nassau.)
NOW ... where do we go from here?
Oh yes, I know.
Perhaps Mr. Murphy's most useful service to the Colony was
his activity in the hotel business. He transformed the Montagu
Hotel from a white elephant into a most successful enterprise.
He built the Jungle Club in a comer of this property on the
banks of Waterloo Lake with the house of Sir Stafford Sands on
the opposite bank. The Jungle Club became the most popular
rendezvous for tourists and gay young Bahamian socialites in the
island. Remnants of this building are now a glorified junk pile.
As I told you, Mr. Murphy was in the show business before he
came to Nassau. I could easily picture him as a "barker" selling
..;.; shows at a circus. He was good at promotion.
*q earlier years Waterloo Lake was a natural phenomenon. It
was there in the bush. No one was interested in it because it had
no value. The water was saturated in phosphorous. Any hard
object thrown into the water would cause it to blaze with light. It
was commonly known as the Lake of Fire.
This was the only fresh water lake in the island. It was because
of lack of fresh water that the Bahamas whichunder Governor Sir
Ambrose Shea, a Canadian, pioneered in the sisal industry, lost
this business to other places, mostly Africa.
The Bahamas sisal leaf was rhetted in brackish water and
produced an inferior brownish brine-coated fibre. This product
was finally pushed off the market with a grade of sisal known as
"Africa White."
Because the water in Waterloo Lake was fresh women took
their sisal leaves to this spot to clean (rhet) them. As a result the
water in the lake became stagnant. Instead of cleaning it out, the
government opened a channel to the sea and let salt water in. This
permanently destroyed the phosphorous elements in the lake ...
and it no longer blazed like a sheet of gold when the water was
disturbed.
It was only after the tourist business developed that the
government realized that they had destroyed a valuable asset.
George Murphy spent a great deal of money in an effort to
repair the damage but to no avail. He nevertheless kept the story
alive and promoted the Jungle Club with the Lake of Fire theme.
The fire was gone out of the lake but George Murphy fired the
whole Montagu enterprise with his boundless energy ... and the
place boomed.
It is interesting to recall how and why the Montagu was built.
H. M. Flagler introduced racism to Nassau at the turn of the
century when he built the first Colonial Hotel and launched the
island on the tourist business. Up to that time there was easy
mingling among top black and white families in the island. But
this was destroyed ... and the white Bahamian accepted this
change in the name of good business. Coloured people were shut
out from the hotel. When this hotel was destroyed by fire in the
1920's Frank C. Munson, President of the Munson Line. entered
into a contract with the government to replace it with the
structure that now stands on the site, and to provide a weekly
passenger service out of New York with the s.s Afunargo, then
considered a luxury liner, which was sometimes replaced by the
lesser s.s. Mirimar.
Mr. Munson, handsome, a self-made man,. had married a
Mallory whose family were wealthy and operated the Mallory
Steamship Line. She was not beautiful but she had money behind
her.
Mr. Munson was a confirmed racist. lHe hardened the lines on
racism, both in the hotel and on his steamship. Hie was so racist
that in his New York office building jobs, such as elevator
operators and messengers, then given mostly to coloured men in
that city, were filled by white men.
Mr. Munson embraced Jews in his prejudice.
Prior to the bootleg era Albert Cohen, a New York Jewish
exporter, and a Mr. Macdonough, who I think was also a Jew. tied
up the trade in Nassau.
Just about all the merchants on Bay Street ordered their goods
through these two firms because they extended them credit.
I never saw Mr. Macdonough but I knew Mr. Cohen well
because my father got newsprint for The Tribune through him ...
never more than five pounds ($15) worth at a time.
It was said that whenever Cohen landed in Nassau Bay Street
trembled. I can well believe this because I can remember how
hard my father had to scrape to find five pounds to cover his
credit one time. My mother often received Mr. Cohen with
savings from the three shillings a day my father gave her to run
the house and feed the family!
Mr. Cohen was barred from the new Colonial hotel. By this
time Bay Street was crawling with bootleg millionaires whom he
had financed when they were poor merchants. Not only the
liquor men got rich ... but others had prospered as well.

I forgot to tell you a detail about the liquor business in an
earlier instalment. I will degrees to insert it here. At the .ime
America went dry there was a strong temperance movement in
Nassau that threatened to outlaw liquor and close the bar rooms.
The two strongest men in this movement were the late Hon. W. C.
B. Johnson, Speaker of the House and father of the present J. S.
Johnson, and Captain Stephen A. Dillet, head of the temperance
Rechobite Lodge. Both of these men claimed that never a drop of
alcoholic beverage had wet their lips.
When the liquor money started rolling, Mr. Johnson and Capt.
Dillet stood firm on their temperance pledges ... but they stood
alone. Just about everyone else jumped on the liquor gravy train.
Storage was needed for large imports of Scotch and Irish whiskies
.. and houses and old warehouses formerly used for storing sisal
.. and owned by many formerly staunch temperance men ... were
rented in this trade. Almost overnight rum became king in
Nassau!


Now let us get back to Albert Cohen.
lie went around among his Bay Street friends and promoted
the building of the Montagu Hoel He also brought in money
from New York on the deal.
The hotel was completed but it was failure from the start
bec.aise they couldn't find a manager to give the place life until
George Murphy leased it and used the story of Fort Montagu
and the Lake of Fire in his promotion. During that time I wrote
articles tI' foreign newspapers to help him with his promotion.

Lip to that iine hotels opened only during a short winter
season and all the staff was brought from New York.
The I Ion. Charles Dundas came to Nassau as Colonial Secretary
and made himself very unpopular by declaring that the money
spent on tourist promotion could not be justified until it reached
more of the working people.
Instead of promoting tourism he placed himself at the head of
the Board of Agriculture and asked me to serve with him. He ,'elt
that Bahamian farmers should be encouraged -- and helped to
produce the food served on the tables of the hotels.
His American wife, a daughter of a famous New York
protestant Minister, launched a fund to collect money to establish
a school for training domestic staff for the hotels. This proposal
" was opposed by both white and black men in the Legislature but
it was supported by American resident tourists who wanted to

Products Board, he chartered a motor vessel at his own expense
and moved among the Out islands trying to stimulate interest in
agriculture.

wa) because it is done in other counties and the present
government,. who are now experimenting with farming, should
make another effort in this direction. They should try to break
into the foreign market, even if it became necessary to subsidize
the industry.
Later Mr. Murphy was moved up to the Legislative Council.
The Duke of Windsor was governor of the Bahamas when
America entered the second world war. The tourist business
collapsed and the islands were threatened with a serious econonuc
crisis. It was feared at the time that we would be eating each
other in six months time. Nothing was in sight to save the
economy. The only course open was to scale the economy down
to an agricultural level.
The Duke appointed a committee to revise the economy iHe
selected men who either had political power or practical
knowledge for the job. I was then conducting a successful farm at
Camperdown and so I was included.
Sir Kenneth Solomon was appointed because of his political
power, Mr. Murphy becmise of his practical knowledge and


This was one of only two occasions that I had a serious falling out
with my friend A. F. Adderley. He wanted money for a high
school. So did I. But I argued that it was first important to
provide jobs for the mass of people so that they could afford to
send their children to a high school whenever we succeeded in
getting a vote for this purpose. We broke friendship for a time on
this issue.
And so it all came about in good time when I later served on a
committee that reported a Bill to the House providing for the
establishment of the Government High School.
George Murphy was also enthusiastic about Mrs. Dundas'
proposal because he wanted to employ Bahamian staff at the
Montagu. I was finally able to get an item inserted in the
Appropriations Act providing a small annual grant for this
technical school. Mrs. Dundas wrote me a letter of thanks in
which she said that this had saved the school. She was just on the
point of giving up when I got this grant for the school.
The Dundas Civic Centre was launched and this school trained
thousands of our people for service in the hotel industry and in
the homes of resident tourists. George Murphy was the first
employer to staff his hotel with Bahamians.
The success of this venture didn't lessen the hatred for this
couple among an element in the town.
When Mr. Dundas left the colony to take up an appointment as
Chief Secretary in an African Colony, The Guardian published an
editorial suggesting that the name of the Dundas Civic Centre be
changed. It said that the name of Dundas should be expunged
from every public place in the Colony!
1,. of course, shot down this evil suggestion in this column and
no more was heard about it.
And then the Colonial Office did an unusual thing. They sent
Mr. Dundas back to the Colony as governor and he was knighted.
Then all the social butterflies, who had made the Dundases'
former stay in the Colony so unhappy, flocked around them, as
Government House was still the centre of social activity in the
Colony.
Finally Sir Charles resented the action of the Colonial Office in
sending him back again to Africa as a Governor. He didn't want
to leave the Bahamas. He came to my house to give me the news
and he was bitter about it because he was being moved to make
place for the Duke of Windsor who was being sent into exile from
the European area when it was reported that Hitler was anxious
to capture him and make him king in exile.
And now, before I get too far away from Albert Cohen, let us
bring him again into the picture.
The Cohen firm was later wiped out with hundreds of-
thousands of other businesses all over the world in the post-war
depression.
I remember the last time Mr. Cohen visited Nassau. He had
always worn immaculatly white linen suits. On this occasion his
suit was soiled ... and it was a sorry sight to see him on Bay
Street where for years he had been king. Because he was now
poor ... no one needed or wanted him. He was then spoken of
only as "that little Jew!"
Such is the pattern of life, dear readers, in which there seems
to be no compassion, even among "friends" for failure through
misfortune.
Now back to George Murphy and his numerous enterprises.
By this time a powerful group in town became purse proud.
The all-white Savoy Theatre did not satisfy the demands of their
new status. And so George Murphy was persuaded to establish a
theatre in the first section of the Eastern building of the Bahama
Islands Import & Export Co. I think this was called the Caribe
Club. And attendance was restricted by invitation only.
This didn't last long because there were not enough "blue"
money bloods to support such an effort.
Now, I forgot to tell you about a problem that arose in
connection with the Jungle Club.
Mr. Murphy had a general hotel liquor licence for this place but
he ran it like a Members Club. When this illegal operation was
questioned he had to find a solution.
Stafford Sands was then a bright young lawyer and an
up-and-coming member of Parliament. He came up with the idea
of the Proprietory Club.
The only difference between the Members Club and the
Proprietory Club.was that a Members Club is operated for the use
of its members only while a Proprietory Club was owned by a
person who had the right to register anyone as a member on the
spot. This gave the Proprietor the right to admit or reject
anyone at will. This was a design to preserve discrimination with
an easy hand.
At the time I warned that the Proprietory Club would be a
dangerous innovation in the Bahamian society because it would
quickly spread. Stafford Sands said no ... this was being done
only to legalize the position of the Jungle Club. Mr. Murphy
carried out the letter of the law. He sat at a table every night at
the Jungle Club and registered tourists as members as they
entered the place.
Up to that time all bar rooms closed at 9 p.m. After that hour
it was difficult for the working man to get a drink and so most of
them went home with their money.
The Proprietory Club spread fast ... all over this island and in
the Out Islands. These places remained open 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, some of them became gambling dens ... and
many men seldom went home.
The situation became so bad that the House was obliged to
pass legislation requiring the clubs to close during the hour on
Sunday morning when churches usually held their services. This
facility has contributed greatly to the present condition among
our people, many of whom now crowd the hospital, mental
asylum and prisons. They are the products of alcoholism.
The time came when George Murphy entered politics. He was
elected for one of the seats at Exuma, displacing Arnold Kemp, a
black man who had defeated Edwin Moseley in a former election.
He was very active in the House and did a great deal for


THE ROYAL Police Force
has become the newest
member of the International
Criminal Police Organization,
better known as INTERPOL.
Prior to the advent of
independence on July 10,
1973, as the Bahamas was not
a sovereign state, all contact
with the Secretariat General, in
France, was channelled
through the British
representative in London.
The acceptance of the
Bahamas into the famous
international body of Police
Forces came at the 50th
Annual General Assembly
which met in Vienna, Austria
from October 2-9, 1973.
H leading our National
Central Bureau is the
Commissioner of Police, Mr.
Salathiel H. Thompson, a
veteran of 36 years of police
service.
A senior police officer said
that although the Bahamas had
only recently been accepted as
a member of INTERPOL, there
had been a number of enquiries
from affiliated countries
concerning international
criminal matters.
The same police source
pointed out that the
significance of the Bahamas
being a member of INTERPOL
lies in speeding up the
transmission of requests for
information from member
countries, whereas previously
all such matters had to be
forwarded to the National
Central Bureau in London.
"From a law enforcement
viewpoint, where speed is often
essential, direct contact with
INTERPOL members is a
tremendous advantage. There
are some 114 affiliated
members of INTERPOL, and

that Mr. Murphy should be the chairman but he couldn't
overlook the Solomons' feeling that they should dominate
everything in the Colony at that time. And so he appointed the
committee and told them to select a chairman.
No one on the committee would take the responsibility of
making a move and so the Duke himself took on .the
chairmanship. This is how the governor of the colony became
chairman of a committee, the first time such a thing had occurred
in many years. I believe there was a time when the governor
headed the Board of Education.
Soon after this Mr. Murphy resigned in disgust. He felt there
was too much talk and too little action.
The fears of the government proved to be unfounded because
Nassau became a great air and military centre during the war and
also a refuge for wealthy evacuees from England to escape air
raids over Britain. As a result Nassau enjoyed a great war-time
boom.
The committee continued to function, however, and I finally
resigned because it eventually became a meaningless political grab-
bag for its members.
Some time later Mr. Murphy. apparently disillusioned by the
power politics of the day, resigned from the Legislative Council
and all other public activities.
I will write two further installments on life of that period in the
colony but I will round off this instalment with a story that
showed another side of this man.
Although he worked closely with the power clique and
appeared to endorse all its policies, he was more liberal-minded
than the power group with which he was involved.
At that time I was battling for more recognition for the
coloured people of the Bahamas. I was urging that A. F. Adderley
should be given a seat on the Executive Council and Sidney Eldon
should be appointed the head of a Public Department.Mr. Eldon
finally became Comptroller of Customs with an I.S.O. and M.B.E.
and member of the Legislative Councilalso father of Bishop
Michael Eldon, the first Bahamian Bishop of the Anglican
Church.
Even though Mr. Adderley's ability was recognized by the
power group and he had "friends" in their ranks, the Executive
Council was considered a closed door to coloured people.
Because of my efforts to help coloured people I was considered
a threat to the social structure ... and so I had to be eliminated.
Several efforts were made to crush The Tribune.
As practically all my business was drawn from the city the
power group held meetings from time to time to plan ways of
pressuring advertisers in The Tribune to cancel their business with
us.
This was a hard period for us but we managed to survive
without surrendering to pressure, thanks to a few friends in the
city who stuck with me, especially Sir George Roberts. Joe
Garfunkel of The Home Furniture Co. and Bert Kelly of the Ford
Motor Co. also refused to cancel their business, but Sir George
fought actively on my side.

MR. SALATHIEL H.

of Police, heads the Bahamas
National Central Bureau of
INTERPOL.

to one with international
interest befitting an
independent nation," he said.
The average citizen may not
be aware of the immense
importance of INTERPOL as
an international crime fighting
organization, but in these days
of rapid travel and instant
communication, criminals
move from country to country
and it is essential that
international police forces are
kept aware of their movements
and activities. INTFRPOL is
not an organization of
super-sleuths but simply a
affiliation of international
police forces all engaged in a
common effort to combat
crime.
The Secretariat which is
located in St. Cloud, France,
serves as the nerve centre and a
repository for information
compiled on international
criminals, and now that the
Bahamas has been accepted as
a member of INTERPOL the
fund of information and police
assistance available to the
Royal Bahamas Police Force is
incalculable and provides a new
dimension in international
cooperation.

New assistant manager


for Chase Manhattan


Music while you ride in the


Matador


ANDRE MITCHELL, 28,
(pictured) has become the
assistant manager (credit &
marketing) for Chase
Manhattan Bank.
Prior to this, Mr. Mitchell
had gained excellent ratings as
a two year management trainee
and had acted as manager of
both Chase Manhattan Bank's
Cable Beach and Georgetown
(- xuma) branches.
His present responsibilities
cover both the bank's lending
policies and its business
promotion.
"Chase is a big concern, with
seven branches in the
Bahamas," said Mr. Mitchell,"
and it's an exciting challenge
for me to be part of an
international banking
association which has such a
suncere commitment to the
Bahamas and its people.
A 1964 St. John's College
graduate, Mr. Mitchell became
i,.tiated into the banking
vni ld during a three year stint
at The Royal Bank of Canada.
Then he decided to re-enter
the academic sphere at Howard
University, Washington, D.C.,
where he did a degree course in
Business Administration
( Major) and Economics
(Minor).
Because of his many


academic achievements and
School of Business club
affiliations at Howard, Mr.
Mitchell was listed as an
outstanding student in the
journal "Who's Who Among
Students in American Colleges
and Universities" (1970-1971).
Since that time. Chase
Manhattan Bank has given him
and other talented Bahamian
employees the opportunity to
pursue a special development
programme (Marketing and
Credit Analysis) at the branch
at San Juan, Puerto Rico.


HIGHLIGHITS in history today:
1)72 1The United States and Cuba agree
'o negotiate an agreement to curb airliner
hijackings.
1t71 Border clashes continue between
india and Pakistan.
1970 Tens of thousands are reported
killed in typhoon and tidal wave in East
Pakistan.
196- United States agrees to begin talks
with Japan to arrange for return of some of
the Pacific islands caputed by American forces
during World War Two.
19()2 Greek freighter carrying explosives
catches fire in the Atlantic, and 18 crewmen

195(1 U.N. emergency force arrives in
Fgvpt: Russia makes loan to India.
194( The Netherlands recognized the
Indonesian Republic.
1942 U.S. fleet smashed Japanese


Now after a two year
"labour of love" with Chase
Manhattan, Mr. Mitchell can
assert positively. "within the
past two years the Bank's
Bahamian officers have
increased from 3 to 8, which is
a definite indication of Chase's
commitment towards
recognition and advancement
of Bahamians to official
positions."
An all-round sports fan, Mr.
Mitchell enjoys meeting
people. He is married to the
former Everesta Thompson.
The couple have two children.

new look striking, dramatic,
with long, gently curved lines
and a whole bag of year-ahead
styling -- all at Nassau Motors
on Shirely Street.
The sleek four passenger
coupe has a 114-inch
wheelbase. Styling features
include frameless door glass, a
hood that flows back to the
windshield base and a fast
sloping rear deck
There are three versions of
the Matador coupe which have
variations in the exterior
ornamentation, interior trim,
upholstery and appointments.
Depending on the variations,
you have the basic Matador.
the sporty "X" and the
premium Brougham.
Famous designer Oleg
Cassini has created an elegant
interior for the Brougham. Its
black and copper colour
scheme is exclusive to
American Motors and adds that
extra which makes the
Brougham a truly spectacular
car.
The Matador four-door
sedan and four-door wagon are
smooth riding vehicles with a
1 18-inch wheelbase, the
longest in the intermediate
class. Coil spring seats are
standard on all the Matadors to
further increase the riding
comfort.
There are energy-absorbing


tront and rear bumpers which
protect against body damage
up to five miles per hour.
Styling refinements include a
restyled hood, new grille and
taillights.
Handsome bucket seats in
tru-knit vinyl and a
floor-mounted automatic
transmission with console are
available on all the Matador
coupes.
The Matador models and
body styles have been designed
to suit virtually every family's
requirements. Options range
from individually adjustable
reclining seats to a new flexible
"soft-feel" rubber steering
wheel. There are also tape and
AM/FM stereo systems with
four speakers and a four-way
balance control.
Styling has not eliminated
trunk space in the Matador
coupe. You get 17.3 cubic feet
of room and even more with
the optional Space Saver spare
tire.
Standard on the Matador
four-door sedan is the
attractive and durable
"Regatta" fabric on full-back
bench seats.
American Motors offers a
wide range of engines for the
Matador
The Matadors have been
planned and built for
outstanding value and comfort
and they are available at
Nassau Motors on Shirley

...... -- ...-







By Abigail Van Buren
c 173 ih ChiSta Tribee-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I write a syndicated newspaper column
titled "Bernstein on Words." Recently I received the follow-
ing letter:
**Dear Mr. Bernstein:
While celebrating my 45th wedding anniversary, I
recalled that 40 years ago my wife had an affair with an-


The difference


between


a cuckold and old kook
other man My question: Was I. or am I a cuckold?"
Abby, all that came to my mind was that juvenile
jingle, "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a
woodchuck could chuck wood with a variation something
like, "Just how old is an olden cluck when an olden cuck-
old's he?""
However, since this question seems much more up your
alley than mine, how would you answer it?
TED BERNSTEIN:
CONSI-LTING EDITOR, NEW YORK TIMES
DEAR TED: If the wife had only one affair-even
briefly-her mate was a cuckold briefly. If she had another
one, he's a cuckold for sure. If she's had them off and on
over the years, he's not a cuckold-quite the reverse. He's
an old kook!
DEAR ABBY: My problem is nothing new. It's my
mother in law. My husband and I are the proud parents of
a new baby, and I have returned to work part-time. Since
we didn't know a reliable sitter, I asked my mother in law
if she would babysit while I worked half days, and I offered
to pay her. To my surprise, she accepted!
Abby, most grandmothers would be insulted if they
were offered money to stay with their grandchildren. This
is her first grandchild.
My husband and I have been fighting about this ever
since it came up, and he says I am wrong-and if I don't
feel right handing his mother money, I should just stick it
in her purse and not make a big deal out of it.
Abby, do you think I'm wrong? I wonder just how
many grandmothers accept money for taking care of their
grandchildren? WORKING MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: You failed to mention an important
factor. How well off is your mother in law? If she must
work in order to support herself, obviously she can't afford
to sit gratis. In any case, you'd have to pay another sitter.
so whv gripe?
DEAR ABBY: My husband is a chaser. I knew it when
I married him, but nobody's perfect, and besides he has a
lot going for him. For instance, he's a good provider and
he's not stingy with his money. And he's also a wonderful
father to our seven children, he's devout in his religion, and
hasn't missed mass in 13 years, no matter how hung over
he was.
His last fling was with a girl who used to call here and
try to disguise her voice, but I always knew it was her.
She'd say it was a "business call."
Once this girl called and talked to ME. She said she
was in love with my husband and he was in love with her,
and she asked me why I didn't give him up. I told her I'd
give him up, but she'd have to take our seven kids, their
ages are 2, 3. 5, 7, 8, 10, and 12. She hung up. [I think she
must have fainted.] That's the last time she called here.
Just thought this might be helpful to other wives with
my kind of problem. MARY SUNSHINE
DEAR MARY: Thanks, but it's risky to make an offer
you'd never honor.
CONFIDENTIAL TO "TIGHT LIPPED AND EXAS-
PERATED IN DETROIT": Whether you sell your kisses for
a dollar apiece Or a hundred dollars is beside the point. The
principle is the same. Kiss that Lochinvar goodby, with a
handshake.

the airport and placed on an
airplane.
Out of every stamp sold for
postal purposes for overseas
mail, a substantial amount, in
most car-s the majority of the
postage, is paid to air and sea
companies for carrying the
mail, other post offices for
forwarding the mail on their
service, and the delivering
country if they distribute the
mail by air in their country.
This is nothing new. In a
Statute of the British Post
Office of 1710, it is stated that
letters may be brought from
abroad by private ship, but
must be handed over at once at
the respective ports of arrival
to the Deputy Postmaster who
will pay the master one penny
for every letter delivered.
FIRST STAMP
Stamps were first used in the


Bahamas 1858. These were
British stamps and were used
until 1860, when the Bahamas
Government assumed
responsibility for its own
postal affairs as a result of a
report by novelist and post
office surveyor, Anthony
Trollope, in 1858. The first
stamp of the Bahamas, one
penny, was introudced in the
latter part of 1859 and was
known as the one-penny
Inter-Insular. It was used only
for domestic mail.
Today, the overseas services
operated by the Post Office in
Nassau and Freeport are similar
to those operated by all other
countries of the Universal
Postal UNion, whose rules for
the transaction of postal
business are binding on all
members.
The Post Office in Nassau is


mainly s tffed by Bahainians.
and has had Bahamian.
controlling its altlairs as far
back as the 19th century. An
interesting fact is the family
connection with the Post
Office since 1846 when Mr.
Stephen Dillet was appointed
Postmaster. The wife of the
present Acting Postmaster
General, Mr. Charles Harris.
and Mr. Anthony Dillet,
Supervisor, are related to Mr.
Stephen Dillet. In his day a
Postmaster was paid an annual
salary of 200 pounds.
Bahamian stamps for
philatelists abroad may be
purchased from the
Intergovernmental Philatelic
Corporation, official agents for
Bahamian stamps in New York.
Local philatelists are dealt with
by a special section of the
Nassau Post Office.


offices, three in Nassau and the
others in the Family Islands.
They are all controlled from
the main branch.
IN 1800
Although no definite date
can be quoted, there is little
doubt that the Bahamas had a
form of Postal Service as early
as 1800. The earliest ktown
record of a letter being sent
from here was in 1761. A copy
of the cover of this letter,
which unfortunately bears no
date on the outside, is
exhibited in the main Postal
Hall of the Nassau Post Office.
One authority suggests that a
form of Post Office was
functioning in the Bahamas in
1733, but there is no evidence
of the date sta-ps or records
of any kind to support this
view. Today, almost 23 million
pieces of mail are handled
yearly.
From the number of
complaints received, it is
apparent that there is some
misunderstanding by the public
of what is involved in the
running of a Post Office. As far
as they are concerned, there is
nothing more to mailing a
letter than placing a stamp on
it, but in fact from the time a
stamp is placed on an envelope,
to the time it reaches its
destination, the letter may be
handled by some 15 people.
The Post Office has the
responsibility for delivering
registered mail to the persons
to whom it is addressed. The
proper procedure in the
Bahamas used for delivering
registered mail is the
preparation of a special card
with the person's name and P.
0. Box number informing him
of registered mail. This card is
placed in the designated box or
general delivery address. When
the person comes to claim the
mail, the card has to be signed
and presented at the Registered
Delivery Counter with
identification from the
recipient before delivery takes
place.
BAD MAIL
A Post Office spokesman
said that it is vitally important
that mail is addressed clearly,
stamps placed in the right
position, and the right amount
of postage and stamps of the
country from where the sender
is mailing is used. It is useless
to carry around United States
stamps and self-addressed
envelopes that clearly state,
"for use in the United States
only." Although they reach
their destination, the receiver is
due to pay double deficiency
as a result of the error.
Hundreds of this type are
mailed out weekly.
Before mail leaves for its
destination, it has to be
collected in large bags, passed
through a stamp-cancelling
machine, that is, if the stamp is
placed properly in the top
right-hand corner, sorted on a
sorting frame, tied in bundles
and placed into a drop bag or
large carrying bag. A letter bill
is then prepared detailing the
contents of the bag, including
registered mail. The bag is then
sealed with a lead seal,
weighed, recorded on an
international mail form called
an AV-7, sent through a chute
to the mail trucks, driven to

What visitors think of life in the Bahamas


THIS SUMMER we made
our second voyage to the
Bahamas aboard our small
sloop, Ishmael.
A full eight-week cruise, it
was even more satisfying than
before not because we sailed
further or saw more islands,
but because we became more
involved with the people.
While we were anchored in a
cove off Little Farmer's Cay,
the children of the island
would smile and wave at us
from a distance. One morning,
when three of them were
sculling about in a small dinghy
we hailed them over and they
examined our boat and made
comments to one another and
to us.
Then they showed us the
loot from their morning's
exploration a big green sand
dollar and four little cockle
shells.
When my companion
commented on how pretty
they were I was witness to one
of the most beautiful moments
of spontaneous generosity I
have ever seen. The boy
handed her the sand dollar
with a simple: 'you can have
dat.' It was followed by the
cockles and: 'You can have
dese!' They are really only
ordinary little shells, but we
think they are beautiful.
This is the way one visitor,
Mr. Bain Lightfoot, a teacher
in the U.S. described his
experiences in the Bahamas. It
is an excerpt from a five-page,
typewritten document posted
to the Ministry of Tounsm.
The variety of com-
pliments paid to the
Bahamas by toruists is
enormous and many are
amusing. They range from
praise for individual
taxi-drivers or shopkeepers to
expressions of gratitude for
well-organi/ed conventions, to
almost poetic appreciations of
the natural beauty of the
Bahamas and the friendliness


squalls.
As Commodore of the St.
Petersburg club, he continued,
and treasurer of the Florida
Yacht Club Council, I have
recommended the Exumas as a
wonderful cruising ground as
well as the most delightful
vacation one could spend. I


would also like to commend
the excellent Bahamas Air Sea
Rescue Association."
Then there are the
compulsive letter writers. One
woman from Toronto set down
the details for her entire
vacation in the Bahamas taking
up some five pages in small
handwriting. She began her
account in the year before the
trip with a description of her
husband's operation and ended
it with a postscript noting the
name of the maid who cleaned
their room at the Pilot House
Club. Everything about her
holiday was satisfactory, she
said.
Some letters begin with all
the aplomb and dignity of a
legal document:
"Dear Sirs: I, Mrs. Gertrude
Stewart, recently spent my
vacation on your island...."
But, not surprisingly, Mrs.
Stewart's style loosened up as
she complimented the tour
company she had patronized
She concluded her letter on a
slightly mischievous note,
remarking that she had enjoyed


herself "thanks to you and
your island and the two young
men who really showed me a
good time."
Then there are those visitors,
especially Americans, who
cannot resist bestowing awards,
as did this gentleman from
Coral Gables.
"Nassau's a great place, and
I know that you are proud of
it, but did you know that in
addition to your other
attractions you have the
World's Champion Honest and
Ethical Cab Driver? His name is
Mr. Newton and he drives an
elderly Chevrolet No.
404...He's a real credit to his
country and here's hoping he
prospers.
Sometimes, non-English-
speaking visitors are so struck
by the beauty of the Bahamas
that they rush off letters to the
government in their best
broken style:
"My question," asked Mrs.
I lse Schlewitt of Mainz,
Germany, "is there a way, a
film, or any kind of film, who
show the nature, the


miraculous nature, of your
islands?' I would show the
young people and tell them
how happy the inhabitants
are."
The Visitor Relations Unit
wrote Mrs. Schlewitt that a
representative from the
Bahamas Tourist Office in
Germany would contact her
about her request.
Even show business pays its
dues to the Bahamas. After
Ivan Tors Studios completed
filming of the first segment of
their TV show "Primus" they
wrote:
"We enjoyed our stay in the
Bahamas and look forward to
future filming there. We
sincerely hope that our filming
will aid in attracting more
toursits to your beautiful
islands."
Some people prefer to
comment on the human
interest side of their stay in the
country, as with Mr. and Mrs.
Peter Carey of Marathon,
Florida, who wrote about the
Janitor at Norfolk House, Mr.
Stanley Waters:


"He was more helpful and
hospitable than anyone we met
on he island, which is
outstanding as everyone has
been especially courteous. We
hope he may receive some
commendation for his
hospitality to visitors."
There are also touching.
expressions of gratitude by


visitors who were helped out of
trouble by Bahamians.
The compliments keep
coming, as do the complaints.
But it is certain that the Visitor
Relations Unit is an important
factor in helping the Ministry
of Tourism to help upgrade the
Bahamas as a tourist
destination.


NOTICE




The public is advised that Mr. Wedley Butler
is no longer in the employ of Bethell
Robertson & Co. Ltd. and effective November
1st, 1973 is not authorized to do business on
behalf of the company.


of its people.
There are complaints too, of
course, and both types of
correspondence are handled by
the Ministry of Tourism's
Visitor Relations Unit,
presided over by Mrs. Keva
Hanna-Lawrence.
Formed only a year ago, the
unit has already processed
hundreds of letters and sorted
out scores of complaints. With
the aid of an assistant, Mrs.
Lawrence acknowledges all
correspondence received by, or
forwarded to, her office. If it is
a compliment paid to a
particular person or
establishment, she immediately
passes it on. If it is a reasonable
complaint, she investigates and
tries to resolve the situation
then replies to the
complainant. Writers are also
thanked for constructive
criticism or suggestions.
Grievances arising from
specific incidents or purchases
are usually easily settled, the
hotels and other establishments
are notified about criticism of
their service. However, there
are some complaints that
cannot be so easily resolved.
For instance, the case of the
man who represented a
conservation group in Florida
and decided not to come to the
Bahamas after he saw a
brochure showing the Police
Band drummers wearing
leopard skins. Leopards are an
endangered species, but the
skins were presented to the
band as a gift from the
Government ot Guyana. Or the
case of the woman who was
bitten by a dog while in Nassau
and who mailed Mrs. Lawrence
a photograph of her behind
showing the result.
The range of compliments is
just as great. One man from
New York wrote that in the
space of a week in Nassau he
had used 13 taxis and noted
that the drivers were simply
wonderful....every time they
spoke it was always: 'We are
happy you have come', or: 'Is
there anything we can do to
make your stay more
enjoyable.' There are no words
to describe these ambassadors
of goodwill. Needless to say,
we will return.
Mr. Theron A. Luckie,
Grandmaster of a Free and
Accepted Masons l.odge in Los
Angeles, wrote Minister of
Toruism, the lion. Clement T.
Maynard, about the Masonic
convention which was held in
Nassau last July:
"We do so much appreciate
everything you did to make
our visit an enjoyable one...We
want to send a contribution to
some children's home in the
Bahamas and would appreciate
a recommendation."
A local institution was
named the beneficiary, and the
Visitor Relations Unit
instructed the Lodge on how
to donate the money.
Several people sent
congratulations when the
Bahamas became independent
including Mr. Will Arey,
Ixeuctive-Director of the
Travel Section of the U.S.
Commerce Department, and
Mr. Hollis Lynch, Director of
the Institute of African Studies
at Columbia University.
In a concerned note, Mr.
Earl Fox, Commodore of the
St. Petersburg Yacht Club,
proposed the dredging of a
channel into Rolleville, Exuma,
hto provide refuge for

Lovely Hedda's


dream comes true


HOW MANY youg ladies dream of
winning a beauty contest and as a result get
a chance to travel throughout the United
States, and finally to London, England for
two weeks to compete in the Miss World
pageant?
For Hedda Garcia Cleare, a freshman at
Bethune-Cookman College from Nassau,
Bahamas, it was a dream come true.
The 18 year old, soft spoken beauty got
her chance after competing in a local beauty
pageant. Later she was crowned Miss
Commonwealth 73-74.
As a result she got a chance to visit
various cities throughout the United States
and finally got to London, for two weeks to
compete in the Miss World pageant.
"It was really an experience," she said
".even though I didn't place, it was a lot of
fun meeting and sharing experiences with
the other 62 contestants from almost every
part of the world and them visiting some of
the places that you read about in books.
Hedda, majoring in business
administration, is now getting down to the
business of getting an education, but
popularity seems to follow her.
She is very popular with the student body
and also is a member of the cheering squad.

She was asked if she would like to go
through the experience again. "One time is
enough, even though it was quite an
experience, I would like for some other
young lady to share the experiences I had."

Colombia, Jamaica and
Montserrat, before returning to
London.
Perhaps the most romantic
of all the places they will visit
are the palm-fringed Galapagos
Islands. a coral reef paradise
off the coast of Ecuador.
Britannia's launches will
take the Princess and her
husband to picnic spots on the
white sandy beaches where
they will see and almost
certainly film the beautiful rare
birds and other wild life that
haunt the Galapagos.
NAVAL ESCORT
Britannia o.j.ionajil serves
Britain's royal family as a
holiday ship, and during Cowes
Week Britain's international
yachting festival in August is
the headquarters of the bride's
father, Prince Philip, Duke of
Edinburgh. But the vessel is
almost wholly used for official
travels in the Commonwealth
and other parts of the world,
most of the time.
When the Princess and
Captain Phillips disembark at
Galapagos on December 4 the
ship will continue on its latest
world voyage from England to
New Zealand. It will arrive
there in good time to meet the
Princess' mother, Queen
Elizabeth II, and the Duke of
Edinburgh, who will be
attending the 1974
Commonwealth Games at
Christchurch early in the New
Year
The royal yacht already ha,
plenty of happy memories for
Princess Anne. Each summer
since her early childhood she
has been aboard with her
family for the cruise around
Britain's coasts to Scotland
where they spend their
holidays. She has also made
many voyages overseas.
Britannia had only just been
commissioned for service
when, in April 1954 just a
year after its launching by the
Queen the three-year-old
Princess made her first long sea
voyage. With her brother,
Prince Charles, now Prince of
Wales, she travelled from
England to Tobruk. in North
Africa, to meet their parents
on the way home after a long
Commonwealth tour.
This beautiful modern ship
is the latest of a long line of
royal yachts which have served
Britain's kings and queens for
more their 300 years, ever since
Charles 11 made yachting a
popular sport and pastime.
LONG SERVICE'
All the early royal yachts
were used mostly for pleasure
sailing or racing off the coasts
of England and Scotland. Byx
Queen Victoria's reign.
however, they had become-
much larger and grander They
took the Queen and her '.,.
on official visits to the maritime
cities of Europe. and on
holiday cruises to the
Mediterranean and the islands
of Madeira.
The last of the three famous
royal yachts, all named
Victoria and Albert, had
completed more than half a
century of service through siX
reigns when it was tia.lly


towed to the breaker's yard
and replaced by Britannia.
By far the most widely
travelled of them all, Britannia
has already covered more than
500.000 miles (800,000km) in
the past 20 years. She has
circumnavigated the world four
times, dropping anchor in the
harbours of every continent
and at islands large and small in
all the oceans.
REGAL 'HIP
Built at a cost of over 2
million pounds, the 5,769 ton
vessel looks every inch a regal
ship. Wherever she puts into
port around the world, she
attracts interest and
admiration.
Hler shapely hull, more than
400 feet (122 m) long, is
painted royal blue above and
red below, decorated With a
gold band running below the
upper deck. ter upper-works
are brilliant white, set off by
.the buff-coloured funnel and
masts.
Britannia is a fast ship too.
Powered by oil fuel, she can
travel for 2,000 miles (3200
km) at a continuous seagoing
speed of 20 knots.
This royal yacht was
designed so that she might be
easily converted into a
medium-sized hospital ship in
any war emergency. So she :;
equipped with stabilisers and
other facilities not necessarily
essential to her normal
purpose.
STATE ROOMS
The private apartments of
the royal family occupy the
upper deck. Here, too, are two
large rooms, the drawing room
and dining room, where, during
their overseas; tours, the Quen
and the Duke of ldinburgh can
entertain their important
guesty- in he customary royal
style. Small dinner parties, or
informal cocktail parties for up
to 200 guests, are usually given
aboard at each official port of
call.
Rear Admiral Richard
Trowbridge, Britannia's present
commander, has the official
title of Flag Officer Royal
Yachts. He is also the only
admiral in the British Navy
who captains a seagoing ship.
The ship's company of 21
officers and about 250 men are
all volunteers from the Navy.
Royal yachtsmen wear
distinctive blue uniforms with
white badges instead of the red
badges usually worn by British
naval personnel. A sartorial
curiosity is a black silk bow
sewn into the back of each
man's trousers.
Ihe black trouser bow was
first worn more than a century
ago by the crew of the second
Victoria and Albert, as a mark
of mourning after the death of
Queen Victoria's husband.
Prince Albert. It has remained
part of the royal yachtsmen's
uniform ever since.
IN SILENCE
Another custom surviving
from those days is the silent
carrying out of orders by crew
members on the upper deck
So far as is possible this is
always done without any
spoken words of command.
Staff from the Royal
Itousehold at Buckingham
Palace always accompany the
Queen and the Duke of
Edinburgh when they go

FOOD PRICE SURVEY


Students in economics at
Bethune-Cookman College are
involved in a cost of living
project in the Daytona Beach
area.
In their investigation of blood
prices at ten retail food stores.
they found that an average
family that had a monthly
food budget of $100.00 in
September of 1972. inow lhI a,.


spend $125.00 to purchase the
same quantity and quality of
food.

fhe results obtained by
these students were similar to
the results obtained by the

the same period.


honeymoon


aboard Britannia. The numbers
taken depend on the nature
and length of the voyage. Quite
a large royal staff will be
needed on long official
overseas tours where there is
much entertaining aboard the
ship at every major port.
During her honeymoon
cruise, Princess Anne will be
accompanied by a small
personal staff.
COMFORT FOR CREW
In recent months Britannia
has undergone a refit costing
more 'han 1 million pounds.
New air conditioning has been
installed, and the ship's
mechanical and electrical
equipment has been overhauled
and modernised. In the royal
apartments a new automatic
telephone exchange has
replaced an old-fashioned
manual one.
But most of the refit was


basically to up Jate the crew's
accommodation to a standard
of comfort and equipment
similar to that found in the rest
of the fleet. Every man now
sleeps in a modern bunk
instead of the traditional naval
hammock. And new dining
halls and recreation space have
replaced the communal deck
area where the men once ate
and slept.
Princess Anne and
Captain Phillips will be the
second royal couple to spend a
honeymoon cruising in the
Britannia. For after their
London wedding in 1960,
Princess Margaret, the Queen's
sister, and Mr. Antony
Armstrong-Jones, now Lord
Snowdon, also cruised on the
yacht in the Caribbean, visiting
islands of the West Indies -
just as their niece and her
husband are about to do.

cruise of the Caribbean in this room.

The Russians are particularly
strong in the running boar
competition in which
contestants fire at a pig-shaped
target speeding between two
boxes 10 metres apart

skeet shooting.
Shooting is not a sport for
the poor. With shotgun
cartridges costing 12 .S cents

shotguns going as high as 1,500

most of the competitors are

From Page I

Dupuch, Q.C., on Tuesday
raised the point that the treaty
formerly in force was actually
arranged between the U.S. and
the United Kingdom and was
extended to the Bahamas as a
British dominion, and may
have ceased to be in force
when the Bahamas became
independent on July 10 this
year.
It was decided yesterday,
however, that Magistrate
Osadebay would write External
Affairs Minister Paul A.
Adderley for clarification of
the current situation.
Mr. Dupuch reserved the
right to argue the matter on
the basis of the Minister's reply
later during the proceedings.


Livingstone to build a new
aluminum alloy 12 to fulfill
the challenge made by the
Royal Thames Yacht Club.
Alan Warren, who won a goal
medal in the Tempest sailing
class at the 1972 Olympic
Games, has been selected
tentatively as the skipper of
the new British vacht.
On the U.S. scene,
construction on the second
new American 12-meter was
scheduled to begin today at the
Derecktor yard in
Mamaroneck, NY, under
supervision of designer Britton
Chance Jr.
He redesigned the 1967
S parkman and Stephens
wooden 12-meter, Intrepid,
and successfully defended the
21st challenge of the world's
most famous sailing trophy in
1970.
The new chance-designed 12
has been named Mariner by its
sponsor and owner, the King's
Point Foundation of the U.S.
Merchant Marine Academy,
and is managed by George
Hinman.(AP).

The demonstrators swirled
around the modernistic British
Embassy near the ancient
Roman walls at the Porta Pia

fence and put up a flag. They
waved their fists and hurled
derisive boos until police
stepped in and took down the
flag.
Then, the fans drove to via
Veneto and stormed up and
down Rome's nightlife street
causing a long traffic snarl.
The Italian press hailed the
Wembley stadium win as the
game which proved "the pupils
are now better than the
teachers," as one paper put it.
"The myth of Wembley has
been shattered the only
triumph we lacked," said a
banner headline in Rome's
Corriere Dello Sport.
Fabbio Capello scored a late
goal to give Italy's world cup
team victory in an exciting
friendly international.
The goal came in a rare
Italian raid in the 86th minute.
Capello crashed the ball
home from range after England
goalkeeper Peter Shilton had
saved but failed to hold a hard
shot from Giorgio Chinaglia.
Until that moment the eager
England team, anxious to
restore wounded pride after
being eliminated from the
World Cup preliminaries, had
pushed forward and at times
threatened to overwhelm the
Italians.
But spectacular Italian
goalkeeper Dino Zoff pulled
out a string of breathtaking
saves which blunted all
Englands's efforts.
A crowd of 88,000 ignored
continuous "heavy rain and
cheered Zoff's saves. (AP).

PLP punish FNM leader for remarks


From Page I
ceremonies.
Major's funeral he charged,
was "well staged, well-planned,
well-publicized and a command
performance as we all know."
The Leader in his statement
had mentioned security forces
being maintained by both
parties during the election.
"We had no security forces,"
Mr. Pindling declared. The
blame for this lies completely
on the doorstep and some
would say in the inner office."
(an allusion to the killers
meeting in Mr. Whitfield's
office).
DANGEROUS
The tragedy of the whole
affair, he continued, was that it
had set in train a very
dangerous trend "and it would
appear that there was
something that was giving them
aid and comfort."
Nor did he think that'Mr.
Watkins could escape all
responsibility, because what he
had been associated with in
Marsh Harbour smacked of the
same philosophy.
Declared the Prime Minister:
"The Leader of the Opposition
does owe the country an
explanation." Furthermore, a
labour leader "much in the
news these days" appeared to
be adopting the same posture.
Referrring to The Tribuae of
September 4, hlt Quoted the


unionist as saying that "if you
touch my brother I will kill
you..."
"If that is not advocating
violence I don't know what
is!"
In the Guardian of the same
date he continued, this labour
leader had referred to a
defensive unit within the
union. This, said the Prime
Minister, was no example for
any leader to set.
"What had been set in train
in Abaco has left a seed there
that will not die. What has
been set in train in Nassau by
the FNM is spreading and
germinating and has not died."
GOOD SIGN
The situation ought to be
taken in hand and checked, Mr:
Pindling said. He felt it was not
too late and thought it a good
sign that members could look
at it, dieausa it aid 49
something abott. .1
He did not blame the pesm,
he said, because the
newspapers, in their eagerness
to defeat the PLP, were
prepared to write anything and
cast all kinds of aspersions. It
was the same kind of mentality
that would forge photographs.
Alluding to the Lewis Yard
incident mentioned by Mr.
Isacs in his statement, the
Prime Minister said he
would, deny th.Me sOet i
the people in that affair weon


his friends. "But still the PLP
has something to be proud of
in that. They went before the
court and pleaded guilty and
were prepared to pay their
penalty.
"It was not planned in
anybody's office as part of a
political conspiracy."
It was his opinion Mr. Isaacs
knew nothing of Major's

are entitled to that belief but it
is completely unfounded."
Emphatically deploring the
killing, Mr. Isaacs maintained
that violence as an Instrument
of political policy "must be
put away into the past."
St. John's representative
Norman Solomon, under fire
from the Prime Minister earlier,
aiod he was "thoroughly
ahamned" to have been
amocsated with the men
involved in the murder.
"I believe I must bear a
certain responsibility for
perhaps not being more aware,
intelligent and concerned. I
cannot escape that
responsibility."
He had said before, he
continued, that people
employed by individuals in the
FNM had committed a "most

trying to wriggle out of what is


murder or had anything to do
with it, but as an executive
member of the FNM he saw
"these hoods" around all the
time.
If the FNM was going to
survive, he advised, it would
have to do something the UBP
never did.
"They will have to disavow
what their former Leaders
did," the Prime Minister
declared.


partially my own
responsibility, but such
association I had with these
people was innocent."
Mr. Solomon however, had
some sharp words for Mr.
Watkins.
"The member knows very
well that at that time he was
just as much a member of the
FNM as the Leader. His attack
therefore was a dastardly,
cheap and scurrilous thing."
The government could not
be faulted for taking political
advantage out of a situation
that offered them such
advantage. They were shrewd,
wise, professional politicians
and by and large had done a
good job in making out their
case.
Mr. Watkins' presentation
however, had been "most
disgraceful." While the
government had dealt with the
matter in a serious fashion, the
member had -chosen to make
light of a Bahamian's death.
