PM warns disloyal ZNS staff of 'immediate'


action against them


By Nicki Kelly
RADIO STATION
EMPLOYEES who choose to
violate Corporation regulations
can expect "immediate"
action, Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling warned Wednesday.
Addressing the House, Mr.
Pindling referred to copies of
Radio Bahamas accounts which
had come into the possession
of Marsh Harbour
representative Errington
Watkins.
"Either he got them himself
or he suborned the loyalty of
staff of the station."
Referring to apparent leaks
from the station, the Prime
Minister said he was aware of
what had been happening in
the past four to six weeks and
intended to put a stop to it.
"Where there are violations
of Corporation regulations
procedures will take place
immediately."
Ile claimed that funds said



MPs WANT


NEW 'DRESS'


FOR HOUSE

By Nicki Kelly
SO LONG as th tv were not
required to wear "hippy or
holly gully pants," members of
the house agreed Wednesday it
was perhaps time they were,
tashionably, mole "with
it."
No one however, seemed
particularly enthusiastic at
representative Edmund
Moxey's suggestion that the
whole thinH be put out to

Fven so, members
considered the subject of their
dress of sufficient national
importance to have a
committee appointed with
power to send for persons and
papers and with leave to sit
from place to place.
Mr. Moxey's motion to
consider "relevant" House
dress for members provided the
principal light relief of the day,
Wednesday, in an otherwise
drearily long agenda.
"Since we are now
independent we should get into
something relevant," Mr.
Moxey insisted. Barbados and
many African nations had
changed into something they
could relate to, and he thought
the tHouse would be doing the
nation and the dressmakers and
tailors of the country a favour
if they were to get them
involved in introducing a dress
for the chamberr .
"Our climate dictates that
we should more or less be
dressed in something that
wouldn't make us feel that we
were in the barrens in
summer," he said.
TWO OUTFITS
Arguing the need for
self-reliance and determination
as a nation, Mr. Moxey
recommended two outfits, one
for summer and the other for
winter
On the strength of that he
foreshadowed moving an
amendment to his own motion,
until Speaker Arlington Butler
brought him up short.
Noting that such a
procedure was slightly out of
order. Mr. Butler suggested he
get someone else to do the
moving.
Forthwith Mr. George Smith
(PLP-Rolleville) foreshadowed
the amendment that would call
for persons and papers.
Shirlea representative Sir
Roland Symonette, who
appeared unsure of what Mr.
Moxey wanted precisely,
praised him for his motion and
then said he thought the


present striped pants, dark coat
and vest in keeping with, and
suited to, the dignity of the
House.

STAFF CAUTIONED
While cautioning Radio
Bahamas staff not to
contravene Corporation
regulations the Prime Minister
assured station employees that
each member could be assured
of fair treatment on any matter
affecting his wages, working
conditions, promotion and
training etc.


& unions


LABOUR MINISTER Clifford Darling warned hotel workers and their union leaders last night that in staging a
three hour wildcat strike at eight major hotels yesterday "the law has been broken" and the legal authorities would


determine "the remedies to
In a hard-hitting speech over
Radio Bahamas the Labour
Minister warned there is a right
and a wrong way of going
about things and hinted that
hotel workers should realise
the dire consequences of
walking off their jobs.
"Do these workers realise
that by walking off their jobs
!hey Ihai e actuallyy giver, up
their jobs? Legally, they have
terminated their employment
and when or if they return to
their hotels it is entirely up to
the discretion of management
as tu whether-o not they will
be rehired," the Minister said.
And he went on: "When a
worker walks off his job on
one of these wildcat strikes he
gives up his job, his seniority
and' prilhr t ~'r : tv."
And he slammed: "I want to
take this opportunity to ask
the workers to make sure that
any action they take is within
the framework of our labour
laws. I say this for their
protection."
CAUTION
The former union leader laid
it down squarely to the hotel
union leaders. "I would also
caution trade union officials to
operate within the law and not
to make foolish moves which
can only destroy themselves,
their workers, their industries
and cause intolerable burdens
for those other citizens who
are in no way involved."
The reaction from the union
was sharp and pointed (o See'
separate story).
Union secretary Bobby
Glinton wondered if the voice
he had heard on the radio was
that of the lion. Clifford
Darling, Minister of Labour
and National Insurance. "It
can't be because if memory
serves me right, he along with
his trade union colleagues,
called a General Strike that
crippled the nation for 19 days
in 1958. Tens of thousands of
workers went out simply
because somewhere between
200 and 300 taximen had a
problem," scoffed Mr. Glinton.
howeverr, that was
yesterday," he said. "Today he
is a part of government and his
views have changed and
changed quite a bit, I may add.
CARDINAL SIN?
It seems as if a cardinal sin
was committed by the
Bahamas Hotel and Catering
Workers Union on Thursday
because we demonstrated for a
mere three hours in eight
hotels in our effort to secure
betterment in the way of
working conditions and
increases in salaries for
approximately 7,000 fellow
Bahamians," charged Mr.
Glinton.
The following is the full text
of the Minister's statement
given over the radio.
SMy fellow
Bahamians, I was
advised this morning
of a strike in progress in the
hotel industry in Nassau and
Paradise Island. The hotels
affected were The Emerald
Beach. The Nassau Beach. The
Sonesta Beach, The Sheraton
B ritish Colonial, Lowes'
Paradise. The Britannia Beach,
The Holiday Inn, and The Blue
Vista.
I must confess that this
action came as a surprise not
only to the Management of the
hotels concerned but to the
entire Nation as well. What is


be applied."
particularly surprising is that
such an action could take place
before one meeting could be
held between The Bahamas
Hotel and Catering Workers
Union and The Bahamas Hotel
Employers Association to
negotiate a new contract.
Further, the union has a legally
binding contract with these
hotels which runs for another
two months until the sixth
(tth) January 1974.
COMPLICATION
lo further complicate
matters, the hotel industry in
The Bahatfs, as in many other
tourist resorts, has been
affected by the decline in the
U.S. dollar, the competition of
other resorts, the cutback in air
services and the latest threat
from the fuel crisis. Through
the efforts of the Ministry of
Tourism and the Hote!
Association. however, there is
every indication that a good
winter season is just around the
corner. A:, a matter of fact
when this work stoppage
occurred this morning, many
of the hotels had important
and influential groups in them.
I need not remind you of the
impression they must now have
of the treatment we give our
visitors.
Disputes will always take
place whether it is the hotel
industry or any other industry.
That is not important. What is
important, however, is the
methods that we use to solve
our difficulties. In matters of
industrial disputes we have
very clearly detailed
procedures laid down in our
Industrial Relations Act, 1970.
The point of all this quite
naturally, is to ensure order

DARLING: MY

REQUESTS

IGNORED
LABOUR Minister Clifford
Darling claimed in the House
this week that management
and labour have ignored his
repeated requests for proposed
amendments to the 1970
Industrial Relations Act.
The Minister said he had
called the employers and the
unions and told them that he
proposed to amend the Act
and that they should therefore
present their proposals.
"They did not respond," the
Minister said. "I met with them
later and again asked for
proposed amendments. Up to
now they have presented
none.
Ile had done the same in
Freeport. Two weeks ago he
called officers of the
Employers Confederation and
various unions and told them it
was their final chance to bring
their proposals to the Ministry
and put them in writing.
"The ball is in their court
now, not mine."
Mr. Darling reiterated the
fact that the government was
not lighting the workers, of
whom man\ government
members had once been a part
But. he declared, "nowhere
where I have travelled is any
union allowed to form a
blanket union."

Pindling said the government

Union's swift reaction



to Minister's remarks

HOTEL UNION REACTION to the Labour Minister's warning
last night came swiftly from union secretary Bobby Glinton who
countered that failure by the Hotel Employers Association to
make any wage proposals had angered hotel workers.


"We were given a clear
mandate by our workers
following a meeting on Sunday
at Taxico Union Hall to act in
any way we saw fit." said Mr.
Glinton. And as a result several
thousand workers yesterday
staged a three-hour work
stoppage at eight leading
Nassau hotels.
The Hotel Employers
Association made no comment
on the situation today beyond
saying that the Minister had
"said it ail. He has certainly
spelt out the provisions of the
law and we have always said we
are ready to sit down and
negotiate."
MONDAY MEETING
The Minister has called on
both sides to meet with him in
his offices at 10 a.m. Monday
morning.
The union told The Tribune
today that everythingd will
depend on the reaction of the
LImployers Association and the
Ministry of Labour" at this
meeting.
Mr. Glinton said in a
statement the main grievance
of the union was that the hotel
employers had made no
proposals on wage' to the
workers despite repeated
efforts to do so.
NO WAGE SECTION
Mr. Glinton said: "The
Minister of Labour in his
speech to the nation said that
hotel managers in the eight
hotels that experienced
demonstrations Thursday were
surprised. I must hasten to add
that upon receipt of the Hotel
Employers' Association
counter-proposals the union
was also surprised to find that
it contained no wage section.
Several important factors must
be taken into consideration, he
added:
(1) Unlike other
industries, workers in hotels
are not assured of six-day woik
weeks.
(2) It should be noted
that somewhere between 4,600
and 5.500 workers in the
industry earn in the areas of
$49 for dish-washers and
laundry workers, $42 for maids
and $38 and $36 for food and
beverage waiters and waitresses
only if they are allowed to
work full weeks.
(3) We cannot
o.er-emphasize the hardship
experienced by the workers in
the prime industry of the
country especially when taey
are rostered to work two,
three, and four day work
weeks, reducing their earning
ability."
PROBLEMS
Their problems are even
more magnified, he
continued, when one takes into
consideration the spiralling
cost of living and the imminent
introduction and cost of
National Insurance.
"Referring to the expiry
date of our current agreement,
Jan. 6. 1974, the Ministry
should not lose sight of the
fact that the wage section was
made retroactive to the first


pay week in November, 1970
and expired the first pay week
of November, 1973, ending a
period of two years on that
section.
"The entire nation should
be aware of the fact that the
Catering Workers Union
registered a dispute with the
Ministry of Labour on Nov. 7,
1973. Talking about surprises,
the union was surprised again
Thursday when officers of the
union were informed that our
dispute was not acceptable to
the Ministry on the grounds
that the Ministry felt that we
had not exhausted the
machinery provided under the
law.
"I personally approached
Trevelyan Cooper, executive
secretary of the Bahamas Hotel
Employers Association on
several occasions, asking him
for the wage section of their
counter-proposal, but to no
avail.
"As a result of similar
strokes used by the association
during the negotiations of
1970 that lasted some 28
weeks beyond the expiry date
of the previous contract, poor
Bahamian people working in
this industry lost some 20
weeks in that difference
between the old rates and the
current rates in salaries. It is
the feeling of the union that
this should not be allowed to
happen again."

CORRECTION
Through a typographical
error in last night house report,
it was stated that the murder
of Barry Major "was planned in
the office for former FNM
leader Cecil Wallace Whitfield "
This should have read "in the
office of."


Radio Bahamas was brought
up in the House when Mr.
Watkins asked for a committee
to investigate its ad-
ministration. The member
was quick to disavow any
political motive. "I am only
concerned to improve the
service," he said.
Replying as the Minister
responsible for Broadcasting,
Mr. Pindling said both Mr.


Watkins and his seconder, Mr.
Michael Lightbourn
(FNM-Clarence Town) had
made no specific reference to
the administration in their
remarks.
Points raised had instead
related to equal time, the rules
governing political broadcast,
television, former manager
Jack Dodge and "personal
problems."


Minister warns


IS EXTRADITION TREATY VALID

BY U.S. CONSTITUTION?


THE UNITED STATES may
not have fulfilled its own
constitution's requirements for
ratification of treaties, so there
may be no U.S.-Bahamas
treaty in force under which
financier Robert L Vesco can
be extradited to face a $50.000
fraud charge in a New York
Federal court.
Vesco's leading defence
attorney Eugene Dupuch's
arguments on whether there is
a binding treaty in existence
crystallised yesterday as he
again explained to Magistrate


Osadebay why he wants
External Affairs Minister Paul
L. Adderley to submit all
relevant documents to the
court.
Mr Dupuch, a Q C. raised
the treaty question at the
Tuesday afternoon start of the
Vesco extradition hearing,
pointing out that prior to
Bahamas' independence, U.S.
extradition cases here were
governed by a 1931 U.S.-
United Kingdon treaty which
was extended to 'elude the
Page 5, Col. I


Speaking first about the
matter of equal time, the Prime
Minister said it was a "false
theory" to think that the
Opposition was entitled to
equal time.
"The Opposition is not
entitled to equal time but it is
entitled to time," he said.
What was agreed at the
Constitutional conference was
that the rules would be


amended to afford the
Opposition time to make
political broadcasts at other
than election time.
"In a few weeks these will
be before the House and they
will be an improvement on the
existing rules," Mr. Pindling
promised.
Concerning Mr. Lightbourn's
question as to why no

ICC CHIEF'S


AFFIDAVIT


BADLY CUT
LARGE SECTIONS of an
affidavit buttressing the U.S.
Government's fraud charge
against New Jersey financier
Robert L. Vesco were ruled
inadmissible and deleted by
Magistrate Emmanuel
Osadebay this morning.
Attorneys in the
four-day-old extradition
hearing spent most of
Thursday afternoon and much
of this morning in legal
arguments over defence
allegations that six of the
affidavit's 13 paragraphs were
wholly or partly inadmissible
as they were hearsay.
Under fire from the defence
was the affidavit of Laurence
B. Richardson, former
president and director of
International Controls
Corporation, the company the
U.S. alleges Vesco defrauded of
$50,000.
Magistrate Osadebay ruled
three sections of the affidavit
inadmissible this morning.
What was left of the material
portions of the document -
several paragraphs were
devoted merely to
identification and other formal
matters suffered from a loss
of continuity.
In the affidavit as finally
admitted Mr. Richardson
testified that in October, 1972,
as a result of a report he
received from a company
officer, "I met with Vesco in
his office at ICC and asked him
tor an explanation of the
$50,000 payment to Buhl.
Vesco initially told me to write
it off as an expense and forget
it. Vesco refused to give me a
reason for the expense despite
repeated requests from me
for an explanation during the
remainder of November."
(Here a section was ruled
inadmissible).
The affidavit continued: "I
again met with Vesco in his
office at ICC and asked him
whether the $50,000 payment
to Buhl had been a partial
payment for the stock
transaction. Vesco denied that
the payment to Buhl by ICC
was a partial payment for
Buhl's IOS Limited stock.
"ICC never made any
purchase of IOS Limited stock
from Buhl. This was confirmed
by a complete review of the
books and records of ICC."
The affidavit went on to
describe a November 17, 1972
ICC board meeting, when
Vesco stated that "the $50,000
was advance compensation" to
Buhl, whom Vesco intended to
hire as an employee of ICC.
A few days after the board
meeting, Richardson said, he
again met Vesco in his office
and "Vesco told mie that the
$50,000 payment to Buhl
represented a finder's fee."
(Again there were deletions,
this time from two succeeding
paragraphs.)

Esso rations British customers


LONDON THE
American-owned Esso
oil company announced
it was rationing its
customers in Britain,
starting immediately,
because of supply
shortages.

An Esso spokesman
said more than 50,000
customers, including
more than 7,500
garages and filling
stations will be
affected.


WASHINGTON The
12.-i -aold son of Senator
Exlwatr .Kennedy reportedly
is suffering from bone cancer
.and -will hve to have his right
leg amputated.
The son, Edward, was to
be told today of the diagnosis
and the necessity of the
amputation.
The Kennedy family
declined to confirm the
report but was expected to
issue a statement later in the
day.
The Kennedy boy has been
undergoing tests since
Tuesday at Georgetown
Hospital.
According to Claude
Hooton, a family friend and
classmate of the Senator, the
family apparently told the
child of his medical condition
shortly before noon.
Several of the Kennedy's
and their friends spent the
late morning hours with
Teddy Jr.
The boy, with tousled
blond hair and wearing
yellow pajamas, was in a
wheel chair.
Hooton said among those
present were Joe Kennedy,
the eldest son of the late Sen.
Robert Kennedy; Eunice
Shriver and Pat Lawford, two
of Kennedy's sisters; and Mrs.
Joan Kennedy, the Senator's
wife.
Bone cancer is a relatively
rare form of cancer.
But it is one of the most
common types of cancer in
young people 10 to 20 years
old and, the fourth-ranking
cause of death from cancer
among boys under age 15.
Like any form of cancer, it
can endanger life. But many
cases are considered curable
through surgery, radiation or
radiation combined with
drugs.


The company which
is owned by Exxon said
it has not yet worked
out details of how large
the cut in its supplies to
customers will be.

A spokesman for the
Petroleum Retailers
Association which
represents the smaller
independents, however,
said supplies to its
2,000 customers may
have to be cut off
entirely because of
shortages.
He added: "It could
be disaster for some
small companies which


may never survive."
Esso notified its
customers in a letter

Watergate 'has


shaped U

ANCHORAGE The
Watergate scandal has neither
shaped American foreign
policy nor the stance taken by
China, the Soviet Union and
other nations toward the
United States, a senior U.S.
official said today.
The official made his
comments as U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger returned
to the United States on the last
leg of a 10-nation tour. The
official, who is in the Kissinger
party, declined use of his
name.
He said he could not think
of one move by Kissinger in
the foreign policy area that was
designed "to take attention
away from Watergate."
He said the American
domestic situation was not
discussed once by top U.S.
officials in the planning of the
worldwide alert as well as other
responses to Soviet moves in
the Middle East during the
latest Arab-Israeli war.
For another example, the
official pointed to Kissinger's
12-day trip to Egypt, China
and Japan and seven other
countries. The events that
triggered the journey, the
Middle East War, the desire for
closer relations with Peking,
and the Arab oil squeeze, "all
have their own reality," he
said.
It is understood Kissinger
also believes the chances of a
North Vietnamese offensive
have declined over the last
month to the point where they
are less than 50-50.


'BACK NIXON'


TEAM PICKED
WASHINGTON The White House has set up a special
"surrogates programme" to defend President Nixon. The purpose is
to counter what it views as unbalanced media coverage and an
organized effort to promote impeachment. As in the 1972
re-election campaign, Nixon's personal appearances are being
supplemented by members of his personal and official families.
The surrogates make speeches, give interviews and appear on
television talk shows.
Directing the effort is
Kenneth Clawson, the w w w w W

EMERGENCY

MEASURES

TO SA VE OIL
BONN. Chancellort Willy
Brandt said today his
Government will decree on
Monday its first emergency
measures to conserve oil,
adding he believes it will be
necessary to ban Sunday
driving as of Nov. 25.
Brandt made the statement
in a news conference at which
he also called for greater
progress towards West
European unity and reaffirmed
his government's desire to
strengthen the Atlantic
alliance.
Speaking after his Cabinet
discussed the Arab oil squeeze,
European unity and
U.S.-European relations in an
all-day secret session on
Thursday, Brandt said the
worsening fuel supply situation
forced his Government to
consider using emergency oil
conservation powers granted
by Parliament last Friday.
Using these powers, the
Cabinet will issue its first
decree on Monday, said
Brandt. Mentioning a Sunday
driving ban from Nov. 25
onwards as one probable
measure, he indicated that
some pre-Christmas weekends
may be exempted from the ban
so as not to interfere with
Christmas shopping.
Asked whether the Arab oil
squeeze is likely to make oil
rationing necessary by early
next year, Brandt said: "I hold
this to be very unlikely."
Brandt announced in an
opening statement that his
cabinet approved proposals he
made earlier this week to the
European parliament in
Strasbourg on swifter progress
towards West European
unification.
Brandt said West Germany
wants "essential progress" by
early next year towards
creating a European economic
and monetary union (AP),

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the fourth 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.)
YESTERDAY I told you that the Duke of Windsor realized
that George Murphy should have headed the war-time Economic
Committee but he couldn't overlook Sir Kenneth Solomon's
claim to recognition.
At that time no governor could afford to ignore power blocs in
the House ... and the Solomons had that power.
First we must find out where the Solomons came from.
At some time during the last century a Jew made his home at
Harbour Island where he married a local girl. He became the
Resident Justice of the island, the equivalent of Commissioner
today.
They had a large family ... as ffr as I can remember five sons
and four daughters.
The salary for this job was picayune and so when this family
moved into Nassau they were poor and they all had a career to
make ... and they succeeded.
Neville Solomon went into the Public Service and later got a
good appointment in Africa. When he retired he returned to
Nassau where he became the Treasurer and a member of the
Executive Council.
Percy Solomon was said to be the cleverest. He became
manager of the shipping firms of R. H. Sawyer, predecessor of R.
H. Curry & Co. as the top company in this line. There was a
romance going with Miss Mary Moseley, editor of The Nassau
Guardian who had a great deal of influence in the power bloc. It
was felt that he had a brilliant career ahead of him. But he died a
young man in a barber's chair on Bay Street next to the General
Hardware Co. while getting a shave. Miss Moseley never married.
Eric Solomon held an executive position with the R. H. Curry
Co. shipping firm. He represented Exuma in the House of
Assembly. He served with British forces in India in the first world
war and came home with the rank of Captain which he continued
to use.
Eric Solomon married an English lady who came to Nassau on
the yacht Sea King as the Secretary of Baron Bliss. They had two
sons, Roy, a member of the House and a Minister in the last
U.B.P. government, and Norman, a present member of the
Opposition in the House.
Ns a young man Eric Solomon left the Curry firm and joined
with another brother, Cyril ("Pot") to establish the Pipe of Peace.
"Pot" was the only member of the family who never took part in
politics and he fathered Fane who like his father, has shied from
politics. "Pot" married a Maclure whose niece married Philip
Bethel. The Maclure name died out. The Solomon's daughter
married Peter Bethell.
Kenneth Solomon was articled to the Hon. Harcourt Malcolm,
Barrister-at-Law and Speaker of the House. The Malcolms were
the most distinguished family in the island, his father Sir Ormond
Drimmie Malcolm having been the only Bahamian Chief Justice
of the Colony until the recent appointment to this high post of
the Hon. Leonard Knowles by the newly independent nation.
Harcourt Malcolm was affectionately spoken of by the town's
people as "our prince" and he bore himself with the dignity of a
patrician. He married into the Adderley family, another
distinguished family of an earlier time. There was no issue by the
union. It is interesting to recall that the first Adderley was an
Englishman whc came to Nassau at the time of the boom created
by the American Civil War. Most of them left when the war
ended, but Mr. Adderley and John S. George, who founded the
oldest business in the colony today, stayed.
Kenneth Solomon finally passed the local examination and was
called to the Bahamas Bar aq an Attorney. He never went to
England for training but he became a leading legal practitioner
rivalling the Malcolm position.
This became an interesting rivalry. Harcourt Malcolm wanted
to follow his father on the bench with a knighthood. When he
was appointed to act as Chief Justice for a short period all his
friends in the city turned out to see their prince occupying a seat
he so deeply desired. But he was to learn that it was against
Colonial Office policy to appoint another native a Chief Justice in
any small community. He was a disappointed man when he died
from a cerebral haemorrhage just before Christmas one year
without a knighthood. This was a pity because he was a man who
would have given dignity to this honour.
Although not a Barrister-at-Law, Kenneth Solomon also had
his eye on the Chief Justice's bench. He thought he could rise
through the ranks. He took the job as Magistrate and acted as
;Attorney General but when he applied for the permanent
appointment he was told that it was against Colonial Office
policy to fill this post with a local man ... and so he knew that the
Chief Justiceship was beyond his reach.
He resigned from the Service ... was elected to the House ...
and made himself such a nuisance to the government in the
SOpposition that the Governor appointed him to the Executive
Council, a lifelong appointment. He later became leader of the
Government, a position similar to that of Prime Minister but
without executive authority. He held this influential spot when
the Duke of Windsor came to the colony as governor. He
exercised a great deal of influence on the Duke and was blamed
for some of the racially reactionary attitudes of the Duke.
But finally the Duke tried to break this power by having the
Colonial Office reform the structure of the Executive Council by
reducing membership from a life term to eight years, thereby
throwing Mr. Solomon out of Ex. Co. He was boiling mad over
this loss of power but the House compensated for this reverse by
giving him the Speaker's chair and later he was appointed
President of the Legislative Council and created a knight, a
dignity which his tutor, Mr. Malcolm had failed to achieve.
Sir Kenneth married a daughter of the Hon. T. H. C.
Lofthouse, a member of the Legislative Council and one of the
Island's most important merchants. There was no issue by this
Union. But a brother of Lady Solomon was a member of the
House. He was the father of presentday Alexander Loflhouse.


* One of the most significant things in Sir Kenneth's career was


that one day leaders in the Southern District invited him to
represent the district in the House. This district had long sent a
black man to the House but the people felt that, with his power,
Sir Kenneth could help their district as no representative had
been able to do. He accepted the invitation ... and he didn't fail
them. He used all his influence to promote the welfare of the
district. Socially it was known that he was a racial reactionary
but, in the discharge of his public duties, he was scrupulously fair.
The Solomons had four sisters ... one Minette never married,
Vera married a Mr. Patterson, an Englishman, and they had a son,
but Mr. Patterson returned to England and his wife carried on a
novelty business bearing the name of "Vera" ... she was the last
member of her generation of the family to die a few years ago.
Two other sisters married Duncombes. I'm not sure if they were
related but this name is also passing into history as there is no
male issue to carry on the line.
One of the Duncombes was he son of an Anglican church
Priest, who was, I think Dean of the Cathedral. One son was a
member of the House for the city. There were two children by
this union, a son and a daughter. The son Gurth also became a
member of the House and his sister was a confidential secretary
of the Governor until she married an Englishman, Trevor Marshal,
and they now have a hilltop house in Grenada.
Another link in this power structure was no less a person than
Stafford Sands, a nephew of Sir Kenneth by marriage. Stafford's
mother was a sister of Lady Solomon and he was their only child.
Stafford was articled to his Uncle Kenneth and finally called to,
the Bahamas Bar as an Attorney. He never went to England for
training but he developed into probably the most brilliant
Bahamian of the century, which probably means the most
brilliant of all time. He was not only a brilliant lawyer, he
was a genius in business and a master politician. But he was not a
wise man in his human attitudes for the time in which he lived.
Stafford Sands also had deep-seated racial prejudices and
discovered too late that the time had come for a change. He was
smart enough to change and he did his best to repair the damage
... but too late ... and his power was finally destroyed by the
victory of the P.L.P. party in 1967, thus destroying forever the
age of privilege and white surpremacy in the Bahamas. Stafford
Sands, who became a multi-millionaire, went into exile and died
in England. He willed never to return to the Bahamas and so even
his ashes rest in foreign soil.
Before Uncle Ken died Stafford had outstripped him and
became a rival for the top position. He was also knighted.
But, whatever the in-fighting in this group, the Solomon clan
became the most powerful individual force in the public life of
the Colony. They illustrated what might be achieved by any
united family.
And so you can see how difficult it would have been for the
Duke of Windsor to appoint George Murphy chairman of the
Economic Committee over the head of the Solomon clan.
Incidentally Eric Solomon had one grievance. He could not get
a seat in Ex. Co. because he had two brothers there. The governor
tried to vaseline his pride by appointing him to a seat in the
Legislative Council but he refused.

You can't imagine the ramifications of politics.
I organized the War Materials Committee at the outbreak of
the second world war and it soon developed into what may still
be considered the most important public effort of all time in the
colony. It attracted attention in Washington, Ottawa and
London. During this period I received letters of thanks from
members of Britain's War Cabinet and Washington sent an
observer to Nassau to see what we were doing because we also
made shipments of material to the U.S.
Up to the time I organized this committee the government had
done nothing to help in the war effort. The governor seemed to
be paralysed by the tragedy of Dunkirk.
This became such a success that I didn't realize that it created
envy in the power bloc.
Sir Charles Dundas was still governor. He appointed a
committee to collect funds to buy fighter planes for England.
Kenneth Solomon was made the chairman and I was a member.
It was then suggested that my committee should merge with
the Solomon committee with him as chairman. The Hon. Godfrey
Higgs was a member of my committee. He told me that I had
built up this organization and I should not hand it over to
anyone.
When the Duke of Windsor became governor of the Colony he
also thought this job was too big for me. He sent for Godfrey
Higgs and told him he wanted him to be chairman of the War
Materials Committee ... he would not recognize me as such.
Godfrey Higgs told me about this and advised me not to
surrender it to anyone. It was something I had built up ... and I
should keep it. I did.
And then the general election of 1942 came along and I was
doing such a big job for the Allies that no one in the city or
anywhere else expected me to have opposition ... except, as it
turned out, the small power bloc.
And so I was surprised one day when my friend Fred Moultrie
came to my office to tell me that he had overheard Kenneth
Solomon telling members of the Electrical Board, of which he
(Solomon) was chairman, that my war work was making me too
popular. 1 had to be stopped. He said that they were sending
Peter Bethell into the Inagua district to oppose me.
Peter Bethell had married his niece, a daughter of "Pot"
Solomon. This gave Kenneth Solomon an "in" with Charles
Bethell, a member of the House and of the Executive Council,
and Philip Bethell, also a member of the House. With Peter in the
House his power structure would be further strengthened by
three.
At the same time I found myself trapped into a ruinous action
for libel by three leading merchants in the city. There was no
doubt about it ... I was down for destruction. Frank Christie, a
member of the House and the Executive Council, did not bite his
words when I asked him what they were trying to do. I told him I
thought they were my friends. He said bluntly that they now had
me where they wanted me ... I was a nuisance with my crusades


on behalf of coloured people ... and they intended to chop me
down.
But the motive went deeper than that. Godfrey Higgs had
agreed to defend me in the libel action. At this point he was
approached and told that if I would resign as chairman of the War
Materials Committee they would call off the heat. Godfrey Higgs
told me he would stand by me to the end and advised me not to
do it. I took his advice. I was later to find that I was in the way of
the powerful liquor interests because I refused to be their
creature on the Licensing Authority.
When I arrived at Inagua and Mayaguana for the election I
found, that, while I was devoting all my efforts to my war work,
they had a strong team of propagandists in the islands spreading
false reports about me. I was almost murdered in the bush during
this campaign ... and almost murdered again on the morning of
the election. The pressure was too great and I lost.
But months later I took my own defence in the Supreme
Court. Godfrey Higgs advised me that I had no defence. He
thought my appearance in court alone against two
Barristers-at-Law, one a K.C., would have a great psychological
effect on the jury. But he stuck with me throughout this severe
test.
I surprised the whole town even myself by winning that
case. This case was an example of the fact that power groups in
politics do not necessarily represent the feeling of the people
whom they are ordinarily able td hoodwink.
The 12 men on my jury were not only white but most of them
were friends of the plaintiffs. And supposedly followers of the
power line. I did not only have a poor case but the structure of

DOG OWNER COMPLAINS


EDITOR, The Tribune,
Is your dog safe at a social
dog function or not! On
Saturday, November 10th, at
11 a.m. my dog was attacked
by a Bull mastiff. She had to
be rushed to the Vet's, Dr.
Learn kindly left the Dog Show
in order to give proper
treatment to my dog.
I returned to the show and
tried to have the attacker
disqualified from being shown,
because I had been told that
this dog had attacked a Collie
last year. My main interest is
this: What could happen if this
dog decided his prey was to
have been a small dog in the
arms of a child?
I returned to the Show to
lodge a complaint with the
officials but I was branded as
"not a gentleman" and told by
a committee member to stop
"attacking her", and by an
official I was accused of being
"a trouble-maker and a
nuisance."
Naturally, my dog had to be
taken out of the Show and
returned home, while this dog
was permitted to continue. My
dog later had to receive several
stitches for her injuries.
I am not writing to upset the
Humane Society. They do such
a beautiful job. But I do
protest the action of a
member and the lack of
consideration, not even to have
inquired as to my dog's health
or condition.
How many more Shows will
this dog be allowed to
participate in? If the Show
Committee is not interested in
the harm to other dogs, will
they care about injury of a
human being?

From Page 3
the jury seemed to make my position hopeless and in the end the
Chief summed up mildly against me.
But I put up a type of defence that baffled the lawyers for the
plaintiffs and surprised everyone. The jury gave me a 10-2 verdict
for acquittal. The two votes I lost were connected with Miss Mary
Moseley of The Guardian one an employee and the other some
kind of relative by marriage who came under her influence. Miss
Moseley was a great public figure ... she was a great patriot ... but
I was her one blind spot. She resented the success of The Tribune

paper being established in the colony.
There were many other ramifications to this power play at that
time ... things that are difficult to understand and explain in
human relations ... but they are long stories ... and so I will skip
them.
In this struggle I had lost a seat in the House but I had won a
great victory without bending to pressure. And this greatly
strengthened the position of The Tribune.

All these things make it difficult for the masses to understand
why I refused to destroy these people when I had the
opportunity in the wave of popularity that embraced me after I
broke down the racial barriers in 1956.
\My. reasons were simple. I have never allowed hate to enter my
1.c. I late destroys only the person who hates. And so I could rise
above this temptation and see clearly that ... to destroy these men
at one sweep ... would also destroy the economic structure that
had brought prosperity to our people. The change would have to
come but by a gradual evolutionary process for it to be a healthy
transition.
The Pindling government has done what I refused to do ... and
now you can see how right I was in putting the welfare of the
colony ahead oft m y personal interests.
Just look around you today ... see the stark and complete ruin
that faces the Bahamian people ... and then you might be able to
understand what I am talking about .
On the other hand ... I am still communicating daily with the
Bahamian people through this column and I ask you ... where are
all the power boys today'?


One last bit about the Solomons
Captain Quaire was an iEnglishman and a bit of a snob. He
came to Nassau soon after thie first world war and took care of a
property in the western part of the island for a wealthy friend.
One day he sent a letter to Captain Eric Solomon and
addressed it.
'ric Solomion
7 ,hacconist
('apt. Solomon replied to this letter and addressed it:
Captain Queer
Caretaker
Eric Solomon liked to tell this story. But shortly after this a
hurricane struck the island ... I think it was 1929 ... and Captain
Quaire behaved courageously in endangering his life to help poor
villagers in the area
It is also interesting to recall that, in this same hurricane, Boy
Scouts Gordon O'Brien and the late Edison Russell were awarded
life saving m medals foi allantry in this crisis.

PM WARNS ZNS STAFF

OF 'IMMEDIATE' ACTION


From Page I
Bahamian was available to take
over as manager, the Prime
Minister pointed out that "no
training of any consequence"
had been done at the station
prior to 1967.
Up to the time former
general manager Jack Dodge
left, there was no management
training and no one with the
necessary experience able to
take over the directorship.
Working through the
Caribbean Broadcasting Union
and the commonwealth h
Broadcasting Association of
which Radio Bahamas was a
member, the station had tried
to find an experiencedd
broadcaster who could provide
the necessary training so that a
Bahamian could be appointed
to the post.
"We did not want a person
who wished to remain in the
Bahamas for the rest of his
life," Mr. Pindling explained.
'SPECIAL ADVISOR'
Through the Commonwealth
Association, the Canadian
Broadcasting Corporation had
seconded a director of
Broadcasting from Ontario
Province as "special advisor" in
broadcasting.
While on this assignment the
director was also performing
the duties of manager. lie was,
however, still a staff member
of the C.B.C., and was being
paid by them, Mr. Pindling
emphasized.
lie said that a salary
commensurate with what the
Corporation would pay a
manager was remitted to
Canada.
On television, Mr. Pindling
said it was the policy of Radio
Bahamas that TV was off "for
a couple of years." We are
going to concentrate on
upgrading the present system,
he said.
"This is considered an
essential service ... an absolute
must, and the communication
link must be preserved at all
times."
WAGES LOW
On wages for staff, he said
that two sets of questions had
already been answered on this.
Salary scales were below those
paid in other Corporations a
fact not brought to the
attention of the Corporation
by the union.
''The Corporation
recognized this some time ago
and is acting," Mr. Pindling
said.
One of the first duties of the
advisor, he continued, was to
do a complete review of scales
and establish job descriptions
and posts that were likely over
a three-year period.
"This has now been


' ,


completed and I have the
report," he said. In line with
increases made to the Public
Service, his Ministry was now
pursuing the report with the
department of Public Personnel,
and the Corporation expected
to make an announcement "in
the very near future."
STATION EXPANSION
The Corporation also knew
that working conditions at the
station were overcrowded.
Because of the original plan for
combining radio and TV, plans
to improve the Third Terrace
property had not been
proceeded with.
As a result, management had
been located across the street
which hindered supervision.
Plans had now been drawn and
approved and tenders would be
invited in a week or two for an
extension to Third Terrace.
According to the Prime
Minister this would double the
space available and eliminate
the present overcrowded
conditions.
Whenever a combined radio
and TV facility was built at the
station's West Bay Street site,
the old location would be put
to government use.
Mr. Watkins' motion for a
committee was defeated after
the Prime Minister pointed out
no case had been established
for such a committee.
The Opposition, official and
unofficial, voted in favour of
the committee.

Friday, November 16, 1973


By Abigail Van Buren
S1973 TO CWicaW Trilbui-N. Y. News SyiL, IC.
DEAR ABBY: I am a widow with my hands full.
Ralph, my 28-year-old son, recently divorced a no-good wife,
so now he and their 4-year-old child are living with me.
[His wife ran off with another man, but that's another
letter.]
Now Ralph is mixed up with Rosetta, his 25-year-old
first cousin who has had several affairs before. [I was told
this by Rosetta's mother, who is my sister.] Rosetta's
husband served papers on her last month, took their two
children, and put her out. He charged her with prostitution,
alcoholism, and drug addiction. Rosetta is now living with
her mother right in my neighborhood, which makes it
worse.
Abby, I can't make my son see that there is anything
wrong with Rosetta. He says he loves her and wants to
marry her. It is killing me. Help me.
TROUBLED OUT WEST
DEAR TROUBLED: Love is blind. It's also deaf and
dumb in most cases. If you put down Rosetta, your son will
only become more determined to defend her. Some people
have to learn the hard way, so quit fighting a situation
that YOU can't change.
If Ralph is ever going to see the light, he'll have to
discover it himself. Besides, not all states allow first-cousin
marriages. Also, as bad as Rosetta's record is, she could
reform.

DEAR ABBY: I play cards with a woman who is al-
ways bragging about her children. Several times lately she
has said that her 21-year-old daughter, who is a junior at
the University of Iowa, is the only virgin in her sorority. I
think this is a terrible reflection on the rest of the girls in
the sorority.
I am just dying to put this woman in her place. If she
says it again, what should I say? ANOTHER MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: Ask her how she can be sure.

DEAR ABBY: I hope you won't think I am some kind
of nut, but here I go:
Last week I called a friend on the phone who told me
she was sick in bed with a miserable cold. She said it
started with a sore throat, which developed into a head
cold, and she went into all the details, telling me how
miserable she felt.
I know this will sound ridiculous, but I no sooner hung
up the receiver when my throat started to ache. The next
thing I knew, my nose started to run, and the next morning
I was down with one of the worst colds I had ever had. I
was feeling perfectly fine until I spoke to this friend of
mine.
I am better now, but it took five days of medication
and plenty of rest to get over it. Is it possible that I got
this cold thru the power of suggestion? I've heard of men
actually having labor pains when their wives were in labor,
and wonder if my cold could have come about thru sympa-
thy to my friend? PANAMA CITY, FLA.
DEAR PAN: It's possible. The power of suggestion can
be mighty powerful.

DEAR ABBY: My mother, who is in her middle seven-
ties, has made her home with us for nearly 20 years, since
Dad died. She has her own room, and we built a private
bathroom just for her.
Grandma enjoys "helping" around the house. She can't
hear very well so she gets the phone messages all wrong.
She can't see very well so when she mops or makes a bed,




IS EXTRADITION TREATY VALID

BY U.S. CONSTITUTION?


Kissing cousins


I do it over when she's not looking.
Grandma hasn't been in a grocery store in years so she
has no idea how high groceries are. In fact, she hasn't
spent any of her own money in years, which is what I'm
getting at.
She draws around $200 a month, which she puts in the
bank. The only checks she ever writes are for Christmas
and birthday presents, and those are very modest, consid-
ering what Grandma is worth.


carry relationship too far


She keeps telling us she's leaving everything to us-but
we need some help now. Is there a way to ask Grandma to
kick in with some loot without sounding grabby?
NEEDS HELP
DEAR NEEDS: Try this: "Grandma, the est of living
has gone up skyhigh these last 10 years, aad It's still
climbing. We could use a little money every month to help
cut the mustard. Do you think you could spare it?" If she
asks how much you had In mind, tell her.


From Page I
Bahamas as a British dominion.
Mr. Dupuch said it could
very well be that the treaty
ceased to be in force here when
the Bahamas became
independent on July 10.
In oft-deferred argument on
the treaty situation running
over the last three days, Mr.
Dupuch has asked Mr.
Osadebay to write the Minister
to enquire whether the 1931
treaty was still binding, and to
ask for the documents on
which the Minister based his
conclusion.
Referring to authorities, Mr.
Osadebay expressed the
opinion that in law a Minister
of State's opinion on a treaty
matter was conclusive and he
therefore did not feel he
should ask the Minister for
relevant documents, but only
for a statement on whether a
treaty existed.
Mr. Dupuch, however, has
argued that the existence or
non-existence of the treaty, in
this case, is a matter of law
which the court must
determine. Therefore, he
argued, the court should have
the relevant documents and
information.
In another brief discussion
of the matter yesterday
afternoon, Mr. Dupuch,
ex plaining his argument
further, said the Minister may
not be aware that the U.S.
constitution provides that the
only treaty-making authorities
in the U.S. were the President
and the Senate.
He said while the U.S. may
have been bound by its treaty
with the U.K. while it was
extended to the Bahamas as a
British territory, the treaty, to
be applied to the Bahamas
after independence, had to be
ratified by a two-thirds vote of
the U.S Senate.
He said he was concerned to
know whether the U.S. was


legally bound under its own
system to the terms of the
original 1931 treaty, because it
provided that an extradited
fugitive could be tried only on
the offence for which he was
extradited.
Mr. Vesco faces a number of
other criminal indictments in
the U.S. but the U.S. has
applied for his extradition only
on the one $50,000 fraud
charge.
Mr. Osadebay decided
yesterday that he would write
the Minister but would only
ask for the Minister's opinion
on whether there was a treaty.
Any further argument on
the matter, he said, would be
deferred until the Minister's
reply was received.
Attorney Cecil V. Wallace
Whitfield, leading the U.S.
Government's extradition bid,
said as far as he was concerned
there was no question to be
resolved
He argued that the 1931
treaty was incorporated into
Britain's Extradition Acts,
which in turn were
incorporated in Bahamas law
by Order in Council.
He contended that the
treaty remains in force, even
after independence, unless and
until it is amended or revoked
by the Bahamas Parliament.

Seven die
SEVEN U.S. military
personnel were killed today
when their plane crashed into
the sea near Crete shortly after
take off, Chania police said.
Three others were rescued.
The plane was heading for
Athens from the U.S. air base
at Souda Bay or the
northwestern tip of the Island
of Crete.
It fell into the sea about
three miles off the coast. The
identities of the dead were not
immediately available.(AP)

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
"Gray hair is a sign of age, not of
wisdom" Ancient Greek proverb.


The Association was
incorporated on July 18 in
Worcester. Massachusetts by
Arnold Bowe, a senior
Bahamian student working
towards a Bachelor of Science
Degree in Mechanical
Engineering at Central New
England College, and Cyrus
Alexander and Leopold
Williams, West Indians residing
in Massachusetts.
Mr. Bowe, who spent two
weeks in Nassau during
October establishing the
company here, said the idea is
to assist in lowering the cost of
living for West Indians and
Bahamians to the benefit of
both merchants and
consumers.
Consumers may become
members of C.C.A. by
purchasing a membership card
from local managers and
distributors or by contacting
C.C.A.'s representative for the
Bahamas, Mrs. Doris Bowe of
d'Elegante Fashion Designing
and Dressmaking, Shirley &
Fowler Streets. As a member,
the consumer will be eligible to
purchase goods at a discount
from participating merchants
of C.C.A. in the Bahamas as
well as other parts of the
Caribbean.
HOW IT WORKS
A merchant may become a
part of Caribbean Consumers
Assistance, Inc. by signing a
merchants agreement form. In
this way, he agrees to
participate by giving a discount
to all consumers who present
to him a valid C.C.A.
membership card and proper
identification of himself as
the card holder/owner.
Mrs Bowe said, "C.C.A.'s
plan is to have a participating
merchant in each line of goods
and services (especially the most
essential items such as:
groceries, gasoline, cosmetics,
drugs etc.) I find many
merchants very cooperative
and agreeable to the idea."
The Bahamas is unique in
that it is the first country to
obtain a participating food


merchant. There are 13 other
merchants including a Super
Market, Service Station, Car
Rental Agency, Dry Cleaning
Company, Hardware Company,
Carpet Company, Children's
Store, Men and Boy's Store,
Ladies' Shoe Store, Fashion
Designing, Dressmaking and
Fabrics Store, Cleaning
Company and Furniture
Company. There is also a
Funeral Home, if you ever
need one, which is giving the
highest discount.
There are six other
merchants. each with a
different line of merchandise,
who are to become a part of
C.C.A. by December of this
year.

FACT AND FANTASY


ON SIMILAR lines to last
week's column, we shall first
inspect a situation from real
life. then buttow into the
twilight world of constructed
curiosities.
From the same rubber as last
week's hand comes an example
of the effectiveness of an
inferential bid. At Game-All,
sitting South, I held the
following cards:
A Q J 5
A 8 6 5 3
8
K J 3
East dealt, and opened with
I Heart. thereby silencing me
for the moment to overcall,
vulnerable, with that hand,
would be irresponsible. West
responded INT. and both
North and East passed. That
was different.

Look at it as a problem:
what does South bid? A
re-opening double could be
disastrous, partner might
misunderstand and pass; or
more likely he would come in
with a desperate 2 Diamonds,
slaughtered all over the place.
Pass, then? Many players
would, and of course it would
not be a mistake, since INT
made it not going to hurt you
at rubber bridge, and there is
always the chance that you can
get them down.
However, I was in an
aggressive mood. Moreover, I
had two valuable clues from
the bidding. It was very
unlikely that East had a 4-card
Spade suit, and it was
practically impossible that
West had one. or he would
have preferred 1 Spade to I NT.
Secondly, the enemy strength
was limited: West by his INT,
East by his inability to bid
again.
The more I thought about it,
the more it looked like the
kind of hand where you can
conduct a smash-and-grab and
before the opponents know
what you hold, you have
arrived at 8 tricks. So I bid 2
Spades, and so it proved.
Everybody passed.
The real worry about
coming in with a late bid in
such a situation is not that
partner will have very little,
but that he will have too many

Cadwell Armbrister then
jumped up.
"What are you speaking
on?" the Speaker Arlington
Butler asked. "Whatever's on
the floor." replied Mr.
Armbrister.
Looking tolerantly down
from his high chair. Mr. Butler
explained that it would be
better if members dealt with
the amendment first and saved
their debate for the initial
motion.

West led a Heart to my Ace.
Back came my Diamond, West
correctly playing low. Now
dummy's last Heart went to
East. He couldn't lead a trump
without giving me a free
finesse, so he returned a
Diamond, which I ruffed.
A small Heart from my hand
saw West pop up with the 10
of trumps in front of dummy,
then send a Club back to East's
Ace. Hoping for some kind of
trump promotion, East led a
further Heart, ruffed in
dummy. Another Diamond was
ruffed with the Jack,
another Heart ruffed in
dummy, and a Club led to the
King, leaving the cards like
this:


"I am in full agreement,"
shouted Inagua representative
Joseph Ford, endorsing the
"new look."
He said that while attending
the Parliamentary Conference
in London in 1969 he saw one
of the members arrive in his
miner's suit and axe. "They let
him in but the axe had to stay
outside."
Opting for individual
freedom of choice, Marsh
Harbour representative
Errington Watkins hoped,
however, members wouldn't
turn up in African gowns or
stepladder shoes.
"Let us retain some sense of
decency....I mean dignity," he
corrected himself.
"As an old-fashioned boy"
Rock Sound M.P. Preston
Albury thought it was time
members did some things on
their own and stopped talking
about tradition.
"For one thing I would like
to see scissor tails and beavers
eliminated from the face of
this country."
And sticking his thumbs in
his belt Mr. Albury proceeded
to give forth on his own views.
Black short-tail coat and
striped trousers were
appropriate for Parliamentary
openings, he thought.
For regular sessions he
thought members should get
together and produce
something that they and all
Bahamians could be proud of.
NO HULLY GULLYS
"I wouldn't like to see what
some of them are wearing in
other parts of the Caribbean. I
see them wearing hully gully
trousers and shirts. Let's not
have any hippy or hully gully
pants."
Mr. Armbrister, who is also
government whip, said he had
written to a number of
members about their present
choice of dress for the House,
Nevertheless, they still came
dressed as they wished.
"I hope when the committee
meets there will be some
penalty for not wearing proper
dress." The week before, he
lamented, one member had
appeared in a "sky blue suit
looking like a Christmas tree."
Describing himself as a
traditionalist, St. George's M.P.
Norman Solomon urged
members to set their own
standards and not try to copy
what some other Parliament in
some other country felt was
appropriate.
Above all he urged that the
change, whatever it was, be
dignified.
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs conceded that while
certain traditions should be
adhered to, some were not
relevant at a particular time.
He advocated "comfort
coupled with dignity" as the
criterion.
After all the fuss, it was
probably Mr. Smith who had
the most "relevant" comment.
"We will attain dignity in this
House on the basis of how we
act rather than how we look,"
,he said.
To suggest that dress in itself
would guarantee dignity in the
Chamber was a disservice to
the Parliament.
Named by Speaker Butler to
the "dress" committee were:
Edmund Moxey (PLP));
Simeon Bowe, (PLP);
Clifford Darling, (PLP):
Norman Solomon (FNM); and
Sir Roland Symonette (Ind.)

I was able to get off lead


comfortably with the Jack of
Clubs, knowing that whoever
won would have to give me
that free finesse after all. There
is more fun and satisfaction in
making a modest little contract
like that when the odds are
apparently against you from
the opening bid onwards, than
in claiming 12 tricks in a
lay-down slam.

BAHAMAS MINISTER OF TOURISM, the Hon.
Clement T. Maynard shields his eyes from the sun as he
watches Eastern Airlines' giant Lockheed L/1011 taxi to
the airport terminal bringing a planeload of New Jersey State
Bar Association members to a convention on Paradise
Island. It was the first trip to Nassau for the huge 250
seater aircraft and was opened to the public shortly after its
arrival. Eastern's Bahamas director Bill Bierman said that
the Lockheed would soon be on a scheduled Miami to
Nassau run as from December 16. The huge jet would arrive
here daily at 2 p.m. and depart at 3:15 p.m. for Miami. The
flight originates daily in Hartford at 9.40 a.m., and comes
here via Miami, then returns to New York via Miami.

LABOUR MINISTER WARNS


From Page I
and not chaos in the dealings
between management and
trade unions. Rules and
procedures are very necessary
for the orderly development
and protection of our citizens,
our workers, our employers
and our Nation.
RIGHT & WRONG
There is right way and a
wrong way of going about
things. For example, The
Industrial Relations Act, 1970,
spells out that before a strike
may legally take place there
must be three important
conditions. First: there must be
a report of a trade dispute to
the Minister; second: following
the date of the report, there
must have been an elapsed
period of time of 28 to 53
days; third: the members of the
union must have voted to
strike. All these conditions
must be satisfied before any
legal strike action can be taken.
With respect of this morning's
action, the union reported a
dispute on the 7th of
November, just about one
week ago. They may have
fulfilled one condition required
by law but not the other two.
Further, it may surprise you
to know that the union
reported a dispute before they
held any meetings with
management to determine
whether there were any points
over which they could
disagree! Again, without
waiting or even attempting to
follow the advice of the
Ministry to follow the
grievance procedure of their
present contract, the union
leaders pulled workers off their
jobs.
ILLEGAL
Just on the face of it, it
would appear that the strike
this morning was illegal. The
workers may not have taken all
of this into consideration but
there are usually consequences
of one kind or another for
whatever action we take.
In this situation, for
example, do these workers
realize that by walking off
their jobs they have actually


given up their jobs? Legally,
they have terminated their
employment and when or if
they return to their hotels, it is
entirely up to the discretion of
management as to whether or
not they will he rehired. When
a worker walks off his job on
one of these wildcat strikes he
gives up his job, his seniority
and similar benefits.
I have spent a great deal of
time this year talking with
trade union officials and
employers about our labour
problems here in The Bahamas.
On every occasion I have
emphasized the need for a rule
of law and not of the jungle. I
have said over and over again
that I am not against strikes
but that I am against strikes
that take place outside the
lines laid down in our
legislation. I am not against
unions or union officials. I am
very much for responsible
trade unions and responsible
trade union officials.
The consequences of this
morning's actions at these
various hotels may not be
known for a long time.
Nevertheless let no one fool
himslef that there will not be
consequences.
I want to take this
opportunity to ask the workers
to make sure that any action
they take is within the
framework of our labour laws.
I say this for their protection. I
would also caution trade union
officials to operate within the
law and not to make foolish
moves which can only destroy
themselves, their workers, their
industries and cause intolerable
burdens for those other
citizens who are in no way
involved.
The matter does not rest
here. The law has been broken
and it is now left to the legal
authorities to determine what
remedies must now be applied.
No matter what action is
taken, I would very much like
to appeal to all responsible
citizens not to be turned aside
by the behaviour of those who
are irresponsible. We have a job
to do of building this nation.
Let us get on with the job.

DON'T MISS Wihr WrtUmr SPECIAL '73 CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE


ALTHOUGH the Free
National Movement is
sympathetic to the efforts of
ZNS employees "to achieve
their legitimate objectives", an
FNM release said that some of
the radio's employees had "not
been similarly concerned with
the rights of others."
The release said the FNM
would do "all in its power to
defend the rights of the
workers of ZNS and
throughout the country."
On Monday the Engineering
and General Union announced
that it intended to file a
dispute in preparation for
strike action if the
management of Radio Bahamas
did not agree to start talks
soon on the 25 to 30 percent
salary increase demanded by
the station's employees. So far,
however, Labour Minister
Clifford Darling has failed to
rule whether the union will be
recognized as the bargaining
agent for the employees.
UNFAIR
The FNM today reminded
Radio Bahamas that ever since
the party's "inception, during
the 1972 election campaign
and even after, the FNM has
been subjected to harassment
and unfair treatment by the
Radio Station and we are not
aware that anyone, including
the professional members of
the staff, spoke out against this
abridgment of the rights of the
Opposition."
The FNM release was
prompted by the accusation of
ZNS employees this week that
the FNM made a "shallow and
shoddy" effort to enquire into
Radio Bahamas.
"The Broadcasting
Corporation of the Bahamas
workers also stated that the
FNM could not come out
strongly on the side of the
workers since, according to
them, the FNM represents big
business," the release said.
POINT MISSED
"First of all", said the
release, "it should be pointed
out that the spokesman for the
employees completely
missed the point of the
questions directed to the Prime
Minister by Mr. Kendal Isaacs,
Leader of the Opposition, in
connection with.ZNS.
"In view of the statement
made by the Deputy Prime
Minister to the effect that the
Government is spending $50
million half the National
Budget to pay salaries of
Government employees, the
FNM is attempting to
determine what are the facts in
connection with the number of
employees and the total
salaries of the Civil Service and
all Government corporations.
Since the Minister responsible
for the Civil Service
Establishment is not
responsible for public


corporations, separate sets of
questions had to be addressed
to the Ministers responsible, in
the case of BCB to the Prime
Minister.
"We are prepared to concede
that the misinterpretation put
on these questions was a result
of a misunderstanding rather
than malice.
"Concerning the allegation
that the FNM is the party of
big business, the employees of
BCB and other Bahamian
workers will one day, whether
they like it or not have to
come to the painful conclusion
that the biggest obstacle to the
achievement of their legitimate
aims today is, in fact, the PLP
Government," the release said.
"It is the PLP Government
which is more concerned about
enriching the favoured few of
the Inner Circle of the Square
Deal while attempting to
frustrate the workers in their
organizational efforts and
openly using its influence to
prevent wage increases in the
private sector.
'The FNM is not a party of
big business. It is a party which
stands for justice in the social
and economic order and in this
respect it is far more liberal
than the PLP since it
unhesitatingly gives its support
to the achievement of freedom
of association for the workers
under the Constitution.
"Furthermore, the FNM is
committed to economic revival
as the only means by which the
workers of the Bahamas can
fulfil their dreams and
aspirations.
"When the economy
deteriorates, business withers,
the workers perish and only
those few who are the
favourites of the
Administration are allowed to
take advantage of the limited
opportunities which remain.
"It is our view that many of
the employees of BCB already
appreciate those facts but even

DARLING REQUESTS

was aware of the weaknesses in
the Act, but had to see how it
worked before making changes.
Admitting the 1970
legislation was a "highly
charged political matter," Mr.
Pindling said the government
would introduce amendments
that will meet many of the
points raised by management
and employees and cover some
of the wide loopholes that left
them at each other's mercy.
"We have al'vays
acknowledged that the
Progressive Liberal Party is a
pro-Labour government, but
we will not be dictated to by
friends or foes," the Prime
Minister declared.
He said the government had
experience with bullies before
and "will not be bullied."

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
I, VERNON T.CURTIS, of
George Town, Exuma,
Bahamas, had no knowledge
until November 11, 1973, that
my name is being used in
connection with the sale of
Real Estate by a certain Nassau
Real Estate firm.
The firm had no right .to use
my name on any documents in
any manner. They were doing
so without my knowledge or
consent. I cannot condone
such actions.
I am hereby advising the public
that I am not liable for any of
their actions in regards to the
use of my name on any real
estate documents.As I do not
know entirely the extent that
my name has already been
used, I am asking anyone who
might have grievances
connected with documents
from that firm bearing my
name, to please contact me
immediately at the PIECES OF
EIGHT HOTEL, in George
Town, Exuma.

a diamond, two dubs and a
heart. He might find the VQ. of
course, but preferrift technique
to guesswork. he began by let-

the diamond continuation, he
drew trumps and led dummy's
VJ, letting it run. West won, but
since he couldn't afford to lead
a club, the defence took only one
more trick.
"What a fatuous card, that
07!" said S.K. severely. "To
lead a club through the closed

your diamond entry, you threw
it away wantonly at trick one.

misguesses the heart, as he
probably does to keep you out,
West can put you in with the
