sales of heating oil cut by a fourth and curbed the use of electricity to a point that spells the
darkest Christmas since World War 11. Germany banned Sunday driving.
The Danish oil-saving measures, approved unanimously by a special parliamentary committee,
came on top of 10-day-old speed limits of 50 m.p.h. on highways and 37 m.p.h. on urban streets.
Denmark's tough cutbacks reflected the severe energy shortage created in Western Europe by
Arab oil delivery reduction.
The Netherlands and
Belgium already have banned
Sunday driving and other
countries are weighing that
possibility along with a string
of other energy-saving decrees
such as speed limits.
Minister of Trade Erling
Jensen said the new measures
were necessary despite the
slight one-month suspension of
the Arab oil embargo schedule
announced yesterday in
About 90 per cent of
consumption is based on oil.
Stocks cover just two months
of normal consumption, he
The economy measures
included a ban on all outdoor
illumination, which means
Christmas street lights will be
out this year.
Private driving will be
permitted on the Sunday
before Christmas and during
the two Christmas holidays.
Anyone violating the new
measures risk heavy fines and
in case of repeated, intentional
offense the penalty may go up
to two years in jail.
The ban of Sunday driving is
expected to save more than a
million gallons of gasoline a
week. The speed limits are
estimated to save a similar
amount of gasoline every week.
West German Economics
Minister Hans Friderichs said
today he has decided to decree
a Sunday driving ban for the
next four weeks to save fuel
during the Arab oil squeeze.
Eriderichs told a news
conference he also had decided
to impose speed limits of 63
m.p.h. on superhighway
autobahns and 50 m.p.h. on
lie said the decisions were
subject to approval by other
Cabinet members, which he
expected later today.(AP).
Europe gets Arab
VIENNA Ten Arab oil
nations decided yesterday to
give most of Europe a
one-nionth reprieve in
petroleum cutbacks in
recognition of a Common
Market political stand generally
interpreted as pro-Arab.
The United States, Japan
and the Netherlands were
excluded from the pause in the
Arab oil cutback, imposed in
conjunction with the October
Middle East war as a means of
pressure against Israel and its

The United States gets only
about 10 per cent of its
petroleum from the Middle
East. But with the general
energy crisis, that margin has
become increasingly important.
Europe and Japan depend
heavily on the Arabs for oil,
however, and the cutback has
raised fears of a serious fuel
shortage this winter.
The 10 Arab oil-producing
nations announced after a
surprise meeting here that the
additional five per cent
reduction in production that
had been planned for
December will not be carried
out with regard to sales to the
The decision means that
supplies of oil to Europe, with
the exception of the
Netherlands, should be the
same in December as in

were sharply reduced.

MIAMI Brian and Ellen
Munn of Glasgow, Scotland,
won a second honeymoon in
the sun because he couldn't
remember the first one. In
fact, he cannot even
remember the wedding.
The Munns were married
two years ago, but he was

days later on their first
honeymoon and suffered

remember a thing," said
Munn, 26. "When my wife
showed me the wedding

I almost fainted."
Munn said it took about
eight months before much of
his store of memories
returned. "And then I still
had trouble remembering
things and recognizing faces.
When the Sunday Post
newspaper of Dundee,
Scotland, ran a contest asking
readers to tell why they
wanted a second honeymoon,
the Munns figured they had a
pretty good reason.
They won and last week
were the newspaper's guests
at the wedding of Princess

He blamed inadequate and

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the sixth and final instalment in a series I have written
on the late Georre Murphv an Irish-American wh became a
British subject and was one of the pioneers in the development of
SATURDAY I mentioned the Pyfrom family. This name
conjures up interesting memories.
I am not sure whether the Pvfroms came to the Bahamas with
the early settlers in 1647 or with the Loyalists who migrated
from Virginia at the time of the American War for Independence.
I came into contact with one branch of this family when my
father's second marriage was to a Pyfrom of Governor's Harbour,
Eleuthera. My brother Eugene is the result of this union.
But I came into contact with the branch of the family I am
now discussing at a much later date.
Jerome Pyfrom was one of the largest pineapple growers at
Eleuthera during the pineapple boom at the close of the last
century. He owned extensive lands at the island. And he clung to
the land long after this industry was taken from the Bahamas by
the more fertile Hawaiian islands which obtained pineapple
"slips" from the Bahamas to start their planting
Finally Mr. Pyfrom gave up and came to Nassau. I got to know
him well because his heart continued in the land. At the time I
was trying to stimulate interest in domestic farming among our
people and so I carried many interviews on farming with this
I hardly knew his wife because, as was the custom among Out
Island people in those days. she always remained quietly in the
background. Women were supposed to be seen and not heard.
They had three sons and one daughter. The sons went into
business together ... Will, Theodore and Sidney. As far as I
remember Will, who died fairly young, Sidney and the sister never
married. I have already accounted for the passing of the three
boys. I don't know whether the sister is still alive.
So much for the Pyfrom family. It is interesting to recall that
Jerome Pyfrom bought a fine two-storey house from William
Parliament Adderley in Augusta Street, two doors south of the
Mr. Adderley had lived in an old wooden building next to the
cemetery until he had made a success of his business ... and then
he built this big house.
When he suffered a reverse in business he was in serious
difficulties for a period. He sold the big house to Mr. Pyfrom and
returned to the old home where many years later he died.
The old house has since been torn down.
The Adderleys are one of the most interesting and
important families in the Bahamas with a long background of
family achievement. Dr. Francis Adderley and the Hon. Paul
Adderley, Attorney General and Minister of Foreign Affairs, are
the end product of this line today until their young families grow
I don't know exactly where and how the Adderley family
started in the Bahamas but I presume it had the same beginning as
practically all the other black families in this hemisphere.
But let us start with Adlai Adderley, the great-grandfather of
Francis and Paul Adderley.
It is said that he was a handsome black man. The record
certainly showed him to be a man of outstanding ability as he
owned very extensive acreage in the western part of New
Providence and he was one of the first black men to be elected to
the House. Some of this land now held by the Oakes estate -
has been disputed by a branch of the Adderley family.
Adlai Adderley must have been conscious of the parliamentary
destiny of his family because he named his elder son William
Parliament and his younger son Campbell Adderley.
W. P. Adderley lived up to his name. He represented Andros in
the House of Assembly for a great many years and was the first
black Bahamian to receive a decoration from his sovereign. It was
an M.B.E., considered a good decoration in Nassau at that time.
Even the great Mary Moseley was elated to receive this decoration
for war work in England during the first world war.
W. P. Adderley was in business all his life. His dry goods shop
was on the south corner opposite the entrance to Christ Church
Cathedral. Across the street on the northern side was the Hon. T.
H. C. Lofthouse's Brick Store, the finest men's shop in the island,
a miniature of what one might expect to find in London or New
York or any other great city.
I used to deliver The Tribune to Mr. Lofthouse at this shop and
he would talk with me. He had long been an invalid in a wheel
chair -locomotor ataxia He told me he had over-reached in the
Brick Store. He impressed on me that Nassau was a place for
small things and advised me never to let ambition cloud my
judgment that is, accept the fact that Nassau is small and stay
within its limitations.
Mr. Adderley, who was a large exporter of grapefruit to Florida
at that time, also had a big store but nothing as grand as The
Brick Store. But he would not be outdone. He named his shop
"The Big Store".
On one occasion he had a big advertisement in The Tribune.
We were short of letters at the time and had to pick from one
place to another to make up our copy. This day someone had
borrowed two capital "T's" from the Adderley advertisement and
it came out "He Big Sore." I was amused but the Adderley family
did not consider this funny.
This situation always reminded me of the story of the three
shoemakers on the same street in Edinburgh. One put out a sign
that read: "The West Shoemaker in Edinburgh." the second:
"The Best shoemaker in the world" The Third: '"The Best
Shoemaker on this street."
The Brick Store on one corner of George Street, The Big Store
on an opposite corner.
Talking about awful mistakes ... at one time we were carrying
an advertisement for Fines Department Store. Mr. Max Fineberg.
was featuring shirts. He had a banner headline: Shirts! Shirts!
We were short of R's. They were all borrowed for another job
... and the advertisement went to press without a single "R".
This created a sensation. By 10 o'clock the next morning Mr.
Fineberg had a rush for shirts. He offered to pay double the rate
to repeat the mistake.
But we didn't, of course.
William Parliament Adderley ran into a bad patch and had a
struggle to survive. But The Big Store kept going.
This unfortunately, happened while his only son, Alfred
Francis Adderley, was at Cambridge University and the Inns of
Court and he could no longer send him any money. This crisis left
young Adderley financially stranded.
Now let me turn briefly to Adlai Adderley's second son,
Campbell. He had a grocery shop over-the-hill. It was deep into
Farm Road on the western side of the road. He had two
daughters. I got to know them when I delivered Tribunes in that
I don't remember what happened to the elder daughter. I know
the got married but that's all. The younger daughter married
Louis Isaacs, uncle of Kendal Isaacs. Leader of the Opposition in
: Louis Isaacs was an expert boatman, greatly sought after to rig
lacing boats when yacht racing flourished with "bootleg"
But shopkeeping was in the blood of Campbell Adderley's
daughter and so they opened a fine ice cream parlour at Bay and
Christie Streets. This business flourished and was headed for big
success but Florida salesmen took advantage of their inexperience
in this line of business and oversold them with equipment and
supplies on credit. The business failed and Louis Isaacs went back
to his job of rigging racing boats.
Now back to Alfred Adderley. The first world war was at its
peak and so he took a job in a munitions factory to earn money
to finance his education which he carried on at the same time.
But this was not enough.
He told me that his landlady and others were very kind. They
carried him on credit. And when he returned home to practise: at
the Bahamas Bar he had a big debt to pay in England and he also
had to help save his father's business from bankruptcy.
We became friends soon after his call to the Bahamas Bar and I
watched with admiration his struggle to gain a footing in his
profession. Even after he was married he didn't go home to lunch.
His lunch was a bottle of soda and a bun while he hopefully
waited for a new client to drop in.
At that time The Tribune was demanding more recognition for
coloured Bahamians. We needed a symbol. And A. F. Adderley
filled the bill completely. He had everything ... much more than
most of the young white men in Nassau at the time.
A long struggle followed in which The Tribune was constantly
under pressure from reactionary elements in the island. Some of
the battles were described in an earlier instalment in this series.
A. F. Adderley climbed slowly but steadily. He was elected to
the House, later appointed to the Legislative Council and finally
to the Executive Council. He was the first coloured man to sit in
these three bodies.
At one time I was a member of the Electrical Board. I resigned
so he could take my place and became chairman of that Board.
This was another first.
He was appointed a Commander of the Most Excellent Order
of the British Empire, the highest decoration then held by a
coloured Bahamian. If he had lived he would certainly have been
knighted and he would have also been appointed a Queen's
Counsel because he came to be recognized as the leading criminal
lawyer at the Bar.
He acted as Chief Justice. A small group of reactionaries in the
island tried to block this appointment but the governor. Major
General Sir Robert Neville, was determined to sit Mr. Adderley
on the bench, at least for a short period This was another
first. And then he was one of the men selected to represent the
colony at the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in June 1953.
Another notable first.
By this time all the barriers had been broken down and the
road had been made clear for this recognized leader of the
My wife and I travelled to England with Mr. Adderley and his
wife for the Coronation. I had been selected to represent the
Press at the ceremonies.
In my book Tribune Story is a picture taken of Mr. and Mrs.
Adderley leaving Westminster Abbey after the coronation
ceremony. They were both full of dignity and self-confidence.
Fourteen days after this picture was taken this distinguished
Bahamian was cut down in the prime of his achievements.
Leukemia had worked fast.
His family kept the news of his grave condition from him ... at
least they thought so. But I am sure he knew because one day he
did something he had never done before. As my wife and I stood
by his bedside he drew her to him and kissed her on the cheek.
He shook my hand warmly. This was goodbye.
This was a cruel stroke of fate for this truly great Bahamian ...
I mean really great and not the trash being labelled with greatness
in the Bahamas today.
Both his sons had just graduated from university ... Francis in
medicine from Edinburgh and Paul in law from Cambridge and
the Inns of Court.
It was to be the triumph of his life when he brought these two
young men back to Nassau to introduce them to the people as the
scions of the Adderley tradition. But this was not to be so.
Instead his widow and two sons brought his body back to Nassau
for burial in the Western Cemetery.
And then another first was scored ... if such a first could mean
anything. The funeral was attended by the Governor and Lady
Neville. The procedure in the past had always been for the
governor to send his ADC to represent him at the funeral of
a distinguished citizen.
When I organized the Bahamas Democratic League in 1966 in
an effort to bring the white and coloured people together as
equals in a political body for the first time, the meeting was well
attended by both groups.
At this meeting I was asked to appoint an Executive
Committee to work with me. The first man I named was Paul
I then intended to withdraw from the House and take a seat in
the Legislative Council after I had got this movement well
established. I had picked Paul Adderley as the young leader most
capable of guiding the country through a delicate period of social
and political transition which the country then had to face. Of
one thing I was sure ... he would be honest and fair should he gain
But Paul Adderley declined the invitation. And readers of this
column know the rest of the story.
Lordy me, I have written a great deal when I started on this
subject I intended to write a single article on a prediction made
by George Murphy over thirty years ago when the time came that
labour unionism was introduced to the hotel business that would
be the beginning of the end of the hotel industry.
But my thoughts went off on a tangent and I just let the
memories well up out of the past while I wrote as fast as my pen
could form the words.
And so here you are ... a picture that might help readers of this
column to understand where we have come from during this
century ... where we have arrived today ... and to visualize the
dark chasm towards which we are being pushed at full speed.
EDITOR, The Tribune,
Please allow me a space in
your paper to answer the letter
written by Van Pyfrom
Oldham in November 9th 1973
1. Are you insinuating that
there is not one student
out ot two hundred and
fifty students going to the
High School capable of
drafting a letter to the
Prime Minister and
Ministry of Education and
Culture. That Mr. Fox or
some other adult did it for
us? Well you're dead
2. As for what you said
about the demonstration,
please get your facts
straight before you have
them published in the
paper. Your source of
information is very poor.
You can ask Mr. Baltron
Bethel what he met at the
school grounds when he
arrived there. I'm sure it
won't be that the school
grounds were empty.
3. According to this
statement you know little
of the children of South
Eleuthera, what they care
about and what they
don't care about. It's
evident you don't plan to
go anywhere but the
Bahamas the way you talk
about the getting rid of
the foreigners. Has it ever
occurred to you that if
you went to another
country they might feel
the same way about you.
Furthermore you should
be the last to criticize a
foreigner because your
husband happens to be an
The Ministry of Education
asked teachers to come
into the Bahamas to teach
because they were short
of teachers, but no longer
than last week I heard
over ZNS that the
Bahamas is still short of
teachers, and yet you're in
favour of getting rid of a
4. Our mentality is high
enough to question the
firing of Mr. Fox. I didn't
know you were part of
section. You're not
allowing the Ministry to
do as they see fit. The
students and people who
live in Rock Sound are the
ones in the position to say
what Mr. Fox has done
over the years. It's here he
did the work You say he
"got too big for his
breeches?" You got it
wrong it's the other way
round. If he was "doing
his own thing" as you
said, it was "a good
thing" Leave the Ministry
to put him in his place
about following rules and
5. "A leader" he is more
than a leader, he is one of
God's gifts to Rock
Sound. As for Green
Castle, Whymss Bight,
Water Ford and
Bannerman Town, now
that is a real joke. He was
sent to Rock Sound as a
headmaster and not a
representative for the
Southern District. It's
impossible for him to be
headmaster of all five
If you had a personal
grievance with him you should
tell him and not use this
unfortunate incident to blast
him. That business about
England being over anxious to
get rid of the Bahamas I don't
see where that comes into this
incident. Since Mr. Fox is a
teacher we know he gets paid
for his work and it's not
charity. The Ministry knows
only what's on the records but
we know more in this incident.
I'm really answering your
letter, because you insulted me
and a lot of other students
when you asked the question
as to who was capable of
writing a letter to the Prime
Minister and the Ministry of
Education and Culture. I'm
one that could do it and, other
students. That letter was an
example of what Mr. Fox has
been teaching up here, how to
address a letter to any one.
Sorry you opened your mouth
and put your own foot in it.

CORRECTION: In this column on Saturday in reference to His
Excellency A. R. Braynen, High Commissioner of the Bahamas at
the Court of St. James, I said that he married a Miss Curry from
Spanish Wells. This was incorrect. He married the former Giroflee
Munro, second daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Richard H.
Munro of Spanish Wells. The confusion of names came from the
fact that two of Mrs. Braynen's nieces, the Misses Curry, lived
with them as their own children for a number of years.
On December 5, 1969, after 37 years of marriage Mrs. Braynen
accompanied her husband to the airport. He had told her that he
was going to visit a member of his family in West Palm Beach and
would return home in a few days. They kissed goodby.
Four days later Mr. Braynen was back in Nassau with a new
wife ... the former Miss Ena Eldon, a school teacher, from the

Sign of Progress at
Paced by men, machines and a master
plan, road construction is moving ahead
rapidly at San Andros. Twenty-two miles
of roads are being cleared, graded and
compacted. This is the first stage toward
a network of roads linking the entire
development. By early 1974, all San
Andros subdivisions will have roads,
making EVERY homesite easily accessible
by car. Contractor: San Andros (Baha-
mas) Limited, Andros. Surveying and
Aerial Photography: LTD Surveying &
Engineering Ltd., Nassau. Traffic Circle
Renovation: Albert Whitney Construc-
tion, Nichols Town, Andros.
San Andros Hotel Being N>
Redecorated & Enlarged
The San Andros Hotel is being com-
pletely refurbished and painted in bright
island colors. The appearance will be
further enhanced by luxurious new car-
petings and an attractive pool patio. The
cocktail lounge is being extended and
will feature an open air area at pool-
side. This major improvement program
will insure that our hotel guests and
visiting property owners have a delight-
ful holiday on Andros.
General Contractor: San Andros (Ba-
hamas) Limited, Andros.

San Andros Beach Club >P
Takes on A New Looki
In line with company policy to provide
more recreation areas as the develop-
ment progresses, facilities at the San
Andros Beach Club are being improved
to accommodate an ever-increasing
number of people visiting their property.
New thatched roofs on all structures
give the club a true island look and
an open air bar, recreational facilities
and showers are nearing completion.
Contractor, Frank Brown Construction
Company, Nichols Town, Andros.
Major Renovation at
San Andros Airport
With an expenditure of several hundred thou-
sand dollars, 5,000 feet of the San Andros airport
runway is being completely resurfaced. This mas-
sive renovation will provide vastly improved land-
ing facilities for Bahamasair on its scheduled
flights from Nassau and Miami, and for private and
chartered aircraft arriving constantly from other
points. The expansion and improvement program
will extend to the San Andros Terminal shortly,
achieving for this International Port of Entry a
prominent status in the Bahamas. Contractor:
Heavy Equipment Construction Company, Nassau,
Arnold Cargill, President.
4 New Tennis Courts Being
Readied for Play
New tennis courts that meet professional stand-
ards are nearing completion on the grounds of the
San Andros Hotel. This is just another step toward
our goal of making San Andros a total resort
community, with all recreational facilities close at
hand. Contractor: Bahama Tennis Court Construc-
tion Company, Nassau.

Paradise to win
By IVAN JOHNSON
SUBSTITUTE Tom Mixas headed a goal in
the 75th minute off a Stan Bocus corner to
give Paradise Island a 1-0 victory over Saint
Georges in highly entertaining soccer match at
Clifford Park yesterday.
Although only one goal was scored the large
crowd saw countless chances created by the
bustling Paradise forwards, particularly in the
second half when Paradise might well have had
four more goals as they surged forward in
For the last 20 minutes. Paradise played
with nine men having had two players sent off.
In the opening minutes of the second half
Oscar Forrule, who had entertained the crowd
with his neat flicks and body swerves in the
first half, was sent off following a fight.
Twenty minutes later right back Bob
McVeigh said something to the referee after
being fouled by Vethekas and was also sent
Had Paradise been at full strength for the
last 20 minutes when they really turned on the
pressure, the Saints defence would have been
The Paradise forward line of Juliano lacoppi
and newcomers Hector Rossi and Piero Conti
was devastating, while Forrole in the midfield
gave frequent demonstrations of his
international days with Argentina.
Arnesano, Cuthbertson, McVeigh, Bocus
and Holiday, backed up by the experienced
Franco Pedrini in goal, look good enough to
stop any forward line and the return of skipper
Kealing and Barrett in the backline should
make Paradise even sounder in defence.
In the fourth minute of the game Saints
fullback Roscoe Davies forced Pedrini to dive
full length with a 25 yard shot and 12 minutes

In the 20th minute Simpson
showed that he is still
extremely dangerous within a
30-yard radius of the goal

later Saints striker George Vethekas broke
through down the middle but shot wide as
Pedrini came well off his line.
Paradise settled down after these early
scares and with Forrule controlling the middle
with masterly class, Paradise began to take
In the 30th minute a lacoppi shot was
cleared off the line and in the 44th Forrulle
shot fractionally wide of the post.
In the second half, Paradise brought on
Mixas for Cuthbertson and the diminutive
striker Theo Blackie for Conti.
lacoppi nearly put Paradise ahead three
minutes into the second half when he broke
through on the left but blasted his shot wide.
For the next 15 minutes the game
became scrappy and both Forrule and
McVeigh were sent off.
A powerpack drive from Rossi in the 70th
minute signalled the Paradise onslaught.
Paul Knowles parried three successive
shots minutes later, adding to Paradise's
mounting frustration as the ball refused to find
the back of the Saints' net.
Bocus sent over a high corner kick in the
75th minute and Mixas rose above the Saints
defence to head in the goal.
Paradise then poured everything forward
and two minutes later right back Arnesano
fired over the top from 30 yards.

lacoppi all missed chances and miraculously

Kid Barr, who on Tuesday last week
convincingly disposed of tough Joe

returned to the ring just two days later
against another middleweight, Sam
Nesmith in Tampa, and was stopped in
the fourth round.
Also on the same card was Bahamas
lightweight champ Gypsy Mike Whymns
who was stopped after two rounds. Both
of these fighters are managed by Marty
Boxing notables in New Providence
