WATKINS 'HURT'

AT BEING

LEFT OUT
MARSH HARBOUR
representative Errington
Watkins has expressed his
"hurt" at not being included in
a resolution opening the way
for expelled representatives Sir
Roland Symonette. Cleophas
Adderley and Michael
Lightbourn.
This was disclosed to the
convention this morning by
Mr. John Morley when he
sought to clarify a statement in
last night's Tribune.
The paper reported that
when it was proposed Mr.
Watkins be included in Mr.
Morley's amendment to the
resolution Mr. Morley
"indicated he did not want Mr.
Watkins in his amendment."
"This morning Mr. Watkins
woke me up at 7 a.m. and said
how hurt he was because he
was not included. What I did
say," Mr. Morley explained,
"was that at that time I
couldn't include Mr. Watkins
because I had not spoken to
him."
The convention never
referred back to Mr. Watkins in
it debate on the resdhrtion.
It was support of Mr.
Watkins' Abaco separatist
resolution in the House of
Assembly that culminated in
the expulsion of Sir Roland,
Mr. Adderley and Mr.
Lightbourn.

FNM CONDEMNS

VICTIMIZATION
THE FNM convention
Wednesday afternoon
overwhelmingly endorsed a
resolution by secretary general
Clifford Cooper condemning
the government for its
victim ization policies and
vowing to explore every legal
means to "expose and
eradicate this evil practice."
Mr Cooper moved his
resolution following his report
to the convention when he
foreshadowed the motion.
It said that: "Whereas the
PLP government has
perpetrated and encouraged
cruel victimization of
Bahamians and residents of the
Bahamas out of political spite,
and whereas victimization is
contrary to the spirit and letter
of the Constitution and
contrary to democratic and
Christian principles,
Resolved therefore, that this
Convention condemns and
abhors the practice of
victimization.
Resolved further that the
executive and parliamentary
members of this party be
instructed to explore every
legislative and. legal means
possible to expose and
eradicate this evil practice."
"God knows that never
before in the history of our
country has there been such a
great need to fight the darkness
of untruth, despair and
tyranny," Mr. Cooper said in
his convention report.
Those who lived in New
Providence were aware of the
difficulties facing them daily,
"but I can tell them that those
problems weigh even heavier
on our brothers and sisters in
the Family Islands," he told
delegates.
Even on his brief visits, h(
said, he had been able to see
the results of "deprivation, o1
vanished opportunity and crue
victimization."


By Nicki Kelly
THE FREE NATIONAL MOVEMENT CONVENTION, with the publicly stated
support of leader Kendal Isaacs, today overwhelmingly endorsed a resolution that
would leave the door open for the return of three of its expelled members.


And at the instigation of Mr.
Isaacs, Senator Henry Bostwick
withdrew an amendment that
threatened at the last minute
to irrevocably divide the party.
Mr. Isaacs' gesture, in the
face of repeated, personal
criticism by representatives Sir
Roland Symonette (Shirlea);
Cleophas Adderley (Nassau)
and Michael Lightbourn
(Clarence Town) was the
deciding factor in bringing
about a reconciliation of the
two factions within the party.
Interrupting Mr. Peter
Christie as he was winding up
debate on his resolution, Mr.
Isaacs told the convention that
he had spoken to Mr.
Bostwick.
"I can appreciate that he
feels strongly about the way
these men hays acted and
would like to see certain
safeguards w!tten into the
resolution," Mr. Isaacs said.
FOR NITY
"But for the sake of party
unity he is prepared to resile
from the position he has taken,
and we will therefore be voting
on Mr. Christie's motion."
That resolution, as
endorsed by-the jwvention
resolves that: the delegates of
the convention, in the
interests of reunifying our
great party, would welcome
move by Sir Roland
Symonette, Mr. Cleophas
Adderley and Mr. Michael
Lightbourn to rejoin th"
FNM by first apologizing for
breaking the party line on the
issue of Abaco and declaring
to abide by the party's
constitution and regulations
in word and spirit, and
resolved that a copy of this
resolution be delivered
forthwith to these
gentlemen."
In his amendment Mr.
Bostwick had sought to have
any approach by the three
directed to the Council of the
FNM.
Although this in effect
would be the position on any
application to rejoin, a
significant number of delegates
appeared to balk at the
wording of the amended
resolution.
Chairman Noel Roberts,
who made it clear at the start
of the debate yesterday
morning that he would allow
all who wished to speak, had
just closed the debate today,
when party chairman Orville
Turnquest indicated he wished
-to address the convention.
As chairman, Mr. Turnquest
felt he should state his
position. "There is no doubt in
my mind that the council took


Solomon urges
ST. G E ORGE'S
representative Norman
Solomon last night challenged
labour leaders to "get off the
fence" and take a stand.
"Stand with the government
if you will; stand with the
opposition if you prefer; or
stand alone if that seems to
you the way you can best serve
your followers ... but for God's
sake stand somewhere where
you can be politically
identified."
Labour, he said, had a grave
responsibility to discharge.
"We of the Free National
Movement would not wish the
Bahamian people to be let
down by their labour leaders as
they have been totally deserted
by their government leaders."
Speaking before more than
500 FNM convention
supporters, Mr. Solomon
hammered repeatedly at the
government for its economic
failures.
Labour leaders, he said,
should have the courage to tell
their people the truth. "Let
them know precisely who is


the right and proper course,"
he said. "The gentlemen
concerned have caused a harm
to this party that is almost
irreparable, and it will take a
long time to repair the great
damage that they have done."
It was because of this, he
felt, that so many had spoken
against the resolution. What
was at stake was not so much
the issue of Abaco, which the
three had supported, but the
leadership of the party.
And that, Mr. Turnquest
pointed out, was an
"intolerable position for any
parliamentarian or adherent to
the party."
The actions of the three, he
said, were "deliberately
designed to disrupt and to
remove the leadership," and he
had no doubt about that at all.
PRIDE ASIDE
But from the tenor of the
debate it was evident that the
issue could result in a split of
the FNM. Mr. Turnquest said it
was his desire that the party be
reunified. If that meant putting
aside pride and trying to
accommodate the wishes of all
the members of the party,
then, notwithstanding what the
three had done, the party
should not be seen to take a
position that overtly did not
open the door.
It would be, the chairman
said, a "noble and gracious
step" in deference to the
party's thousands of voters and
supporters.
"We must be seen, when the
next convention comes around,
whether they take up the offer
or not ... we must be able to
say to the convention that we
have taken the unusual step of
allowing them to come back.
"Then their supporters will
have no justification for feeling
they have been done badly."
As a reciprocal show of good
faith on the part of the three,
Mr. Turnquest called on them
to cancel the meeting they
have scheduled for this
evening.
He then appealed to Mr.
Bostwick to withdraw his
amendment and to those
delegates who could not
tolerate the harm done the
party to support the
resolution.
Mr. Bostwick refused
however. His amendment, he
said, spelled out precisely what
the three representatives had to
do in order to be reinstated.
"The convention has the
right and the duty to be
assured of their sincerity and
their promise that the same
thing will not happen again."
The Council was the


labour to 'get


off the fence'
responsible for leading them
into the midst of a stagnating
economic whirlpool from
which there may yet prove to
be no escape.
"Every labour leader in this
country knows that the
government of the day has
destroyed the delicate fabric of
the Bahamian economy and
the standard of living of the
labouring classes with it.
"Every labour leader knows
that Lynden Oscar Pindling
sets the policies which guide
this nation. Every labour leader
knows that the Progressive
Liberal Party is alone
responsible for the economic
disaster with which their
followers are faced ... and all
we say to them now is to have
the guts to take a stand."
La bour also had an
obligation to remember that if
it were to prosper it must make
sure that capital made a profit,
for without capitalists there
could be no labour.


supreme authority in the
absence of the convention, and
it was for them to determine
whether or not the declaration
of the three was made "from
their hearts and souls."
While agreeing with Mr.
Turnquest on the need for
unity, Mr. Bostwick
emphasized that Sir Roland,
Mr. Adderley and Mr.
Lightbourn had done
"irreparable damage" to the
party.
"I will not accept their
paper apology or spoken
declaration until I am
personally convinced that they
are sincere," he declared.
The marathon debate on the
issue of the three expelled
members began yesterday
morning when Governor's
Harbour delegate George
Thompson introduced an
initial resolution proposing the
reinstatement of Sir Roland as
a member in good standing.
He subsequently agreed to
withdraw in favour of Mr.
Christie's compromise, when it
became patently clear that the
motion threatened to split the
FNM.
His withdrawal
automatically cancelled out an
amendment by Nassau
constituency delegate John
Morley that Mr. Adderley and
Mr. Lightbourn also be
reinstated.
DISTASTEFUL
In the ensuing debate some
delegates made it clear the
alternate resolution was
equally distasteful. "It is
nothing more than technical
begging," declared South
Beach delegate Livingstone
Pinder.
So that there should be no
date on the position, attorney
Henry Bostwick moved an
amendment to Mr. Christie's
resolution that would require
the three expelled members to
make their approach to the
Council, should they wish
reinstatement.
'This is so that it is clear the
Council will hear their
application because it was the
Council's decision to charge
them and expel them," Mr.
Bostwick told the convention.
The resolution, he said, was
a fair compromise so that the
wishes of the convention could
be acted on. But "this in no
way assures that they will be
readmitted into the party
should they see fit to make
application. This is not an
invitation that will be
automatic on application being
made," he declared.
If, when the matter was
again aired in Council, that
body was not satisfied that the
three men qualified, "then you
can be assured that the Council
will take an honest and just
decision," Mr. Bostwick said.
In substance Mr.
Thompson's resolution was
inviting the FNM to beg the
three members to rejoin the
party, he continued, and there
was no way he could have
supported such a motion.
Mr. Christie's resolution
however, did not beg them to
return. 'This is no more than
information from this
convention going out to the
public at large and these three
men in particular, that if they
are serious about adhering to
the principles of the party, we
in this convention will lay
down the terms whereby we
would be prepared to consid r
their application.
PLAIN & OPEN
I see this as plain, open
honesty," Mr. Bostwick said.
"It puts the burden on them to
come to us and then the
responsibility is on us to give
them a fair hearing."
How anzious the two
factions were to patch up their
differences was indicated by

FNM WILL

CONTEST

ST. BARNABAS
THE FREE NATIONAL
Movement convention is to be
asked to ratify the nomination
of a candidate to contest the
St. Barnabas by-election,
secretary general Clifford
Cooper revealed in his report
Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Cooper said the FNM is
still committed to contesting
every future election as it did
in the Bains Town bv-election
earlier this year. lie was the
party's standard-bearer at that
time.
This, he added, was part of
the party's commitment to the
Bahamian people "to provide
them with an alternative in
every election whenever at all
feasible."
The St. Branabas vacancy
was created by the disclosure
that the winning candidate
PLP member Sinclair Outten
was not Bahamian-born and
therefore not entitled to
contest the election.

3 MEN ARE

ASSISTING


POLICE IN

BANK ROBBERY
AT LEAST THREE masked
robbers were involved in the
armed holdup early Thursday
afternoon of both the hotel
cashier and the Royal Bank of
Canada branch in the Lucayan
Beach Hotel in Freeport. A
total of about $20,500 was
taken.
No one was hit by the "two
or three" shots fired, a police
spokesman said. but a bank
customer was reportedly struck
by one of the bandits, and a
window near the hotel's main
doors was shattered by a
shotgun blast fired to discourage
pursue it.
Three men are "assisting"
police in their continuing
investigation of the crime.
The police spokesman said
this morning that detailed
information on the robbery
was not yet available, as
reports were not yet in from
officers investigating at the
scene.
The car used in the robbery
which may or may not have
been driven by a fourth bandit
was stolen from the
Williams Town beach last
Friday and was recovered by
police, back at the same beach.
little 'ore than an hour after
the hold-up.
According to reports, the
robbers drove up to the imain
entrance of the hotel shortly
before one o'clock. They were
in a dark green Ford Maverick,
and entered the property
through the "exit" driveway.
Three men wearing stocking
masks, two of them armed
with handguns and the third
brandishing a shotgun, got out
of the car and forced doorman
Wellington Morris into the
hotel in front of them.
The shotgun-wielding robber
held up hotel cashier Theo
Clark and took $499.85, while
the other two held an unknown
number of employees and
customers at gunpoint inside
the bank and took about
$20,000. The police said the
bank had not yet given an
exact figure.
The three bandits then


dashed out of the hotel, firing
as they went, jumped into the
Maverick and left the scene.

Property tax notices to



be collected by Nov.29

INDIVIDUAL Notices of Real Property Tax assessments for
1974 are now ready and may be collected at the Real Property
Tax Office on the second floor of the Government building on
Arawak Cay, off West Bay Street, it was announced today.


Deadline for collection is 29
November, six working days
after a notice to this effect was
published in the Official
Gazeette. The Gazette is
available at the Government

Publications Office in the
Public Square. Information on
Real Property Tax appeared in
the Government notices
section of the Guardian on
Wednesday, November 2 1.
Under an enabling Act
assented to by the
Governor-General on
November 19, the method of
service of the assessed amount
has been changed. Whereas in
the past the notice-demand
note had to be served on the
property owner personally or
by pre-paid registered post, the
law now requires that notice of
assessments be served by
publication in the Gazette.
However, the Chief Valuation
Officer, at his discretion, may
now send assessment notices to
persons whose postal addresses
are known.
The Real Property Tax
Office said that failure of
residents to collect their
notices by 29 November would
cause a surcharge to be added
to the assessed amounts,
cancellation of any exemptions
to which they might otherwise
have been entitled, and court
action for the recovery of the
full amount.
Persons who occupy their
homes are now exempted from
payment on the first $20,000
of the combined value of
buildings and land. The original


C; gr;


figure was $10,000. They are
assessed one per cent on the
first $30,000 thereafter, and
one and a half per cent on any
amount exceeding this. In the
case of rented premises, the
assessment is a half per cent on
the first $20,000, one per cent
on the next $30,000 and one
and a half per cent thereafter.
A resident has 30 days after
receipt of his notice in which
to file objections with the Real
Property Tax Office. If there is
no objection the notice should
be taken to the Treasury where
payment can be made either in
whole or in part. If the resident
chooses to pay quarterly he
will receive a reminder at the
beginning of each three-month
period. In either case the first
payment must be made by
January of each year.
Assessment lists of
properties are available for
inspection by the public in the
Real Property Tax Office
between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
In order to expedite the
service of notices, previously
assessed persons are asked to
take along, during their visit to
the Real Property Tax
Department, copies of previous

Unprintable


reaction to



hotel wage


proposals

By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE ONLY COMMENT an
irate Hotel Union president
David Knowles could come up
with today to describe the
union' reaction to the Hotel
Employers' Association
counter-proposal on wages is
unprintable.
Mr. Knowles told The
Tribune this morning that
union secretary Bobby Glinton
received the two-page
counter-proposal at three
o'clock Thursday. But he
declined to disclose its
contents as the union has not
yet fully examined it.
The Association agreed to
tender its counter-proposal by
Thursday at a Monday morning
meeting between the
Association, the Union and
Labour Minister Clifford L.
Darling.
Prior to the meeting the
Association had steadfastly
refused to submit its wage
proposal until improved
working conditions had been
negotiated and the additional
cost assessed.
The union had just as
strongly maintained it would
discuss no part ot the work
contract until it had the
employers' wage suggestions.
The deadlock in the
negotiations, to hammer out a
new contract to replace a
two-year agreement that
expires on January 6, led to
the union's filing a dispute, and
resulted in a three-hour wildcat
strike at eight major Nassau
and Paradise Island hotels last
Thursday morning.
It was as a result of that
work-stoppage that the
Minister stepped in and called
Monday's meeting.
The Association agreed to
submit its wage proposals by
Thursday, and the union is to
study it before the two sides sit
down to begin negotiations on
Tuesday morning.
The deadlock had arisen
through the exchange of
correspondence. Not a single
negotiation meeting has so far
been held.

The Arab oil producers
have stopped oil shipments to
the United States and the
Netherlands and reduced
overall production by 25 per
cent, with another five per
cent reduction planned each
month until Israel withdraws
from Arab territory captured
since 1967.
'amani also said that if the
United States attempted to
take military action against
Arab oil producers, Saudi
Arabia was prepared to blow
up its oil fields. No such
military action has been

War is just



beginning,



says Dayan

TEL AVIV Defence Minister Moshe Dayan warned today
that the'October Middle East war had not ended but was just
beginning.
He urged his fellow Israelis to have steady nerves in the face
of renewed hostilities.
Dayan, speaking to an Israeli Bar Association meeting, said the
Soviet Union had resupplied Syrian and Egyptian arsenals since
the October fighting and that Israel now faced a combined air
force of 920 Arab warplanes and 4,400 tanks on both fronts.
"But despite the Soviet aid to the Arabs on the military
level, the tight is between Israel and the Arabs," Dayan said.
"We are stronger than the Arabs, but we have to have the
nerves. We are now 20 kilometers near to Damascus and 70
kilometers from Cairo. This puts us in a much stronger position
for negotiations.
"We are facing not the end of the war, but the beginning with
the Syrians and the Egyptians and I don't know about the other
fronts."
Meanwhile, some progress towards an agreement on
disengagement of forces utinder the Middle East ceasefire was
reported today as Egyptian and Israeli negotiators met again at a
desert highway checkpoint.

GRAND CAYMAN, October 31 The people of the Cayman
Islands are aware of the good fortune that has overtaken them,
largely as a result of poli cies of the government in the Bahamas
that discouraged would-bie investors and visitors. They are also
fully conscious of the dangers that may challenge their way of life
in the future.
Most of that danger- will come from foreign intrusion,
especially from leftist elements in the United Nations that
persistently interfere inar-easwhere they are not wanted.
The United Nations is supposed primarily to be a peace-making
organization but there ar- time s when they create conflict among
people who are content with their own way of life, by trying
to press on them policies and practices that serve only to produce
discord in a peaceful comnmrnunit y.
S*** ****
On September 8th, Capt. A. A. Reid, member of the
Legislative Assembly fo r the Third Electoral District in the
Cayman Islands, took th- e bull by the homs when he addressed
the following letter tothe= United Nations:
"We in the Cay man I islands are getting quite concerned over
your interfering in ourpcr litical affairs.
"We do not think that you are capable of deciding any issues
for us. We feel that wearac fairly intelligent people ourselves and
when we want something we know how to go after it, and how to
get it.
"We have enough sense, all of us, to know what is good for us
and, as a matter of fact we wonder sometimes if most of you
new nations had the gooaid sense to know what was best for you.
"A number of new na-tions have told England that they do not
want her any more but they are always holding out their hands
and begging for grant-in-a id.
"We have never had to bea bunch of beggars, although we have
had good help frornm Eng~and voluntarily. A good many of us can
trace our ancestry back tcz England.
"Maybe we are a diffe-rent breed of people I don't know if
you know that but v-',e know Great Britain is our friend, we
know that the British F lag ineans everything to us. It makes us
stable and sensible, and iti gives other people who bring prosperity
to us confidence in our G-overn rent. That is why we have a stable
government.
"Our people are happy, we have no discontent here. Our
carpenters, builders and masons are well paid and drive to their
work in their own autorr-i0biles, and our sailors and labourers can
sit in a bar side by side with me and have a drink without any
problem so long as they are properly dressed. They can also dine
in the same dining room.
"We believe that your interference may cause us trouble and
we do not really thinkycou mean us any good. We do not see why
you should be worried about us since we are not worried about
ourselves.
"I am going to be brut-.ally frank with you. We regard all of you
as a bunch of jackals sitting down watching your prey. You
would like to get us in ti-ae Uni ted Nations because you think you
can bulldoze us into votimig the way you want us to vote.
"We have enough sea se to know that we cannot handle our
external affairs, we have no noney to pay ambassadors and make
asses of ourselves like a lot of other 'two by four' islands and
territories have done while their people at home are starving.
'I am asking you persc-anally as a Member of Parliament for the
Cayman Islands for the Third Electoral District, to keep your
nose out of our affairs. You are not welcome, and we shall be
sorry for any mission ytcu send to our islands because we shall be
rude to them.
"I was elected as one of the two members for the Third
Electoral District in the General Elections in November last, and
more than fifty people e wrote and asked me to stand for
nomination, and at the first meeting I held everyone wanted to
know whether I had an y ideas of self-government or of pulling
away from the British HEmpire because they did not want it. I
assured them that I did rot either.
"With this letter, I hc pethat next year when you bring up this
subject you will leave us st ri-tly alone. The other countries
should have enough scii-se to ask you to do the same thing, but
that is their business it is none of ours.
"We number about 1 2,000 at home and about 13,000 in the
United States, Canada, (C reat Britain and in all different parts of
the world (many of whc.-ni co me back on visits) and of all these
you could not find six people wanting to see the islands change
their flag."

FOOTNOTE TO HISTCDRY: When we registered at the Holiday
Inn on Sunday afternoc0-n we were received by Annie Dilbert, a
hostess behind the desk.
When we returned to the hotel late that night after dining out
with a charming young E=nghsht couple, she was still at her post.
"Great goodness,"l e=xclairned, "you still on duty!"
"Yes," she said cheerfully, "still on the job."
"How many hours deo you put in?" I asked, amazed by her
cheerfulness.
"Thirteen," she said, "and I enjoy every minute of my work."
This was evident fro--n the ease and charm with which she
handled a steady flow cf people coming to the desk for various
reasons.
The next morning arwother young woman was on duty. Both
these women were behind the receptionist's counter during our
stay at this hotel a few months ago. She was still there late in the
afternoon and so sheal=so put in long hours. When I asked her
her name she hesitated for a moment and then fed it to me in
small doses.
"Madre .... Mae..,.MillAer," she said.
"A monopoly of the lM's", I commented.
I wonder if she fed the information to me in small doses
because she was conscicousof the fact that the "Three M's"is one
of the largest industrial complexes in Canada. Or was it because
she wondered what in tlehell I wanted with her name ... but was


too polite to say so,

At dinner that evenir-ag I learned that this was the off-season.
Some of the hotels ha. winter rush.
The tourist business -is just developing here and so it requires
strict economy and enthusiastic cooperation of the staff for a
hotel the size of Holiday- Inn to stay open the year round.
It is easy to understand how Holiday Inn was able to do this
when it is realized that these two charming young women carry
the receptionist's desk dmyin, day out, night in, night out.

endangering the very lives of
Bahamians.
As for Tourism Minister
Clement Maynard, Senator
Foulkes said he was too much
in the clouds to realise the
trouble in his Ministry.
'BOTCHING IT UP'
"Mr. Maynard, it appears,
wants to be a super director of
Tourism. He wants to do
everything himself, although
there are qualified Bahamians
in that Ministry whose entire
careers have been geared
around getting the necessary
training to do a particular job.
Hie is, in the process, botching
it up."
The Senator suggested that
instead of occupying himself
"in the petty pursuits of
trivialities," Mr. Maynard and
the PLP government should be
using all the imagination and
talent they could muster to put
the Bahamian tourist trade on
its feet.
"It is my belief," he said,
"that when everything else
fails, tourism can still provide
bread and butter, and if it is
handled properly, cake as well,
for thousands of our people."
ZNS STINKS
Dealing with ZNS in the


Foulkes vows


Prime Minister's portfolio -
Senator Foulkes described the
radio station as "a situation
that stinks of high heaven."
"The Bahamians employed
at the radio station now realise
that it is not enough to work
simply "for the glory of having
one's voice transmitted across
the airwaves for the
satisfaction of putting over the
PLP's propaganda.
'They realise that they have
children to feed, school fees to
meet, mortgage payments to
meet and, most of all, a
professional dignity to
uphold."
For too long, he asserted,
"the radio station has been the
private playground of Lynden
Pindling. For too long the
airwaves have been permeated
by the PLP propaganda. Now
suddenly, it all seems to be
coming apart at the seams."
WITCH-HUNT
The Prime Minister, he said,
had quibbled in the House
about how certain leaks got
out. If however the station was
being properly run in the first
place, if there was more regard
for the staff members as
human beings, and if the
station and the government


seem to be senior management staff but a great deal of the work
falls on the two women.
With this kind of staff it is not surprising that Holiday Inn is
building a large separate unit on the beach. It is nearing
completion and I am told it is fully booked for the season.
I have done this piece to remind you of the series of
reminiscing articles I wrote for this column recently based on a
prediction made by the late Hon. George Murphy, manager of the
Fort Montagu Beach Hotel, over 30 years ago.
Mr. Murphy predicted that when labour unionism became
established in the hotel business that would be the end of the
industry in the Bahamas.
Labour unionism is making its strong arm felt in almost every
department of enterprise in the islands today.
George Murphy has been proven right because the hotel
business in the islands today is in serious trouble.

We only spent a short time in this island during our first visit a
few months ago.
The people were friendly and we responded to their charm, so
that we found ourselves exchanging a greeting with almost
everyone we passed in the corridors or met in other parts of the
hotel.
This is a no-tipping hotel and so I didn't do anything for
anyone here beyond exchanging smiles and a friendly greeting.
Soon after we were installed in our room on Sunday a bell-boy
came with a bowl of choice fruit and one of the most beautiful
baskets of red roses I have seen anywhere. They were for my
wife. Compliments of the Innkeeper, Leslie More.
From the boy who took our bags to our room to the people
behind the desk, to the staff in the dining room and the boys
working around the pool in the grounds, there was a universal
welcome. "Glad to see you back, sir."
And they meant it. Their pleasure at seeing us again shone
through their eyes and was registered with broad smiles across
their friendly faces.
We are surprised when one of the maids working in the
passageway looked up from a basket of dirty linen and, after
greeting us by saying she was glad to see us back, added: "We
were talking about you only two days ago."
She didn't say who the "we" were but I suppose she must have
meant a wide section of the staff.
Later in the day there was a rap on our door. When I opened it
the maid who took care of us during our last visit came in the
room.
"They took you away from me tiis time," she said. "But when
I heard you were back I felt I had to ccmce and say how glad we
all are to see you again!"
I am sure all this show was not put on specially for us. It is
possible that we got more smiles than the average tourist for the
simple reason that we are more friendly than most tourists.
But no one can resist this kind of treatment. And so it is a very
real pleasure for us to be here again.
It doesn't take any effort in life to be pleasant. It creates an
atmosphere of happiness around you in which you also share.
I tell this story to help the Minister of Tourism in the Bahamas
in the effort he is making to impress on our people who come in
direct contact with visitors to the Bahamas that the nation's
greatest asset is a smiling people.

I just remember something I should tell you.
At lunch time in the dining room today a handsome.
well-groomed black man sat a couple of tables away from us. I
was facing him.
He smiled and I noticed that he had a complete double row of
beautiful white teeth and a friendly sparkle in his large black
eyes.
"He knows me," I thought. "I wonder where he comes from."
After he had finished his lunch he came over to our table and
introduced himself.
We had an interesting discussion.
He is a Nassauvian who worked with Mr. Carl Treco on the
construction of the new Tribune building. He is now living in
Freeport.
He told me that he is a frequent visitor to the Caymans.
"I like. these people," he told me. "And for God's sakes keep
writing your column in The Tribune. You are the only one left
who can tell us about our past and the dangers that face us in the
future if our people don't change their attitude."
I asked him about Freeport.
"Stagnant" was the one word he used to describe the condition
at that island.

After lunch I went to the desk.
"Do you get many Bahamian visitors?" I asked the young
woman with the three M's in her name.
"Yes," she said, "we had a large group of Bahamians in only
last week."
"What did they come for ... anything special?" I asked.
"I don't know," she said. She did not indicate whether they
were white or black ... just curious visitors ... or Bay Street men
here on serious business.
Since the question of colour is never heard here I didn't ask
her for details from which I might have been able to draw my
own conclusions.

Mr. Christie, who said he had
"striven through the luncheon
adjournment to come up with
a resolution that the party can
live with and adopt."
Before putting it to the floor
he had spoken to Mr.
lhompson and Mr. Morley,
and Mr. Thompson had agreed


to withdraw his resolution.
The groundwork for the
reconciliation measure was laid
in the afternoon session by
Grand Bahama delegate
Maurice Moore, who, like Mr.
Thompson, was one of the
eight PLP dissidents who
helped found the FNM.
"In a way I am glad that


these things were said, because
it is here that members must
come to release their tensions,"
he told the convention.
But after that tension was
released, then the party's
leaders must readdress
themselves to the purpose of
the party, that is, to take over
the administration of the


ght ,mrbg u


country.
"In that spirit the party and
the convention must abide by
and set the rules and
regulations that become
necessary, and follow the
directions of our party.
"This party," Mr. Moore
conditioned, "is a great
national party." While it is
:pen and must keep itself open to
anyone who seriously wishes to
become a part of it, it must
also set the terms and
conditions that these persons
must adhere to.
NOT BEGGING
"No man." he admonished,
"is bigger than this party. This
party has a responsibility to do
what is right for all of us, not
just a few. I could not
recommend to the party that it
must even in the slightest
degree beg persons to come to
it."
He said the three expelled
men must take the positive
step by coming to the party
and first pledging to abide by
its rules and regulations before
seeking readmission.
"That is the spirit that this
party must forge ahead in. It
must bow to no man but open
its arms in the spirit of
togetherness to all men."
Perhaps the most persuasive
speech however, came from
Killarney delegate Aaron
Johnson, who had spoken
previously on Mr. Thompson's
resolution. At that time he
compared the dispute to the
parable of Solomon and the
baby.
If the three ex-members
loved, and were concerned
enough about their party, then
they would appear in person,
state that they wanted to be
re-accepted, and say that they
were prepared to follow the
party's leadership.
Speaking later, Mr. Johnson
advised that while it was easy
for anyone to break down, not
everybody could build.
"We are trying to put the
party back in perspective," he
said. "We cannot afford to lose
any members and we are
throwing out Shirlea, Nassau
and Clarence Town without
giving them a chance. I say let
the door be open.
DOOR IS OPEN
"If these men would like to


enter in, the door is open, if
they don't, we have just given
them the chance."
In his resolution Mr.
Thompson asked for Sir
Roland's reinstatement on
grounds that a misinterpreta-
tion of the facts had resulted in
his expulsion.
Mr. Morley, in offering his
amendment to include the two
other expelled members, said
he flet the sentence had been
"extremely harsh."
UBP FACTION
It was evident from the
progression of arguments pro
and con, that the question of
reinstatement was being
advocated solely by the former
UBP faction within the party.
All three representatives
were former UBPs and their
cause appeared to have
considerable support at the
convention.
Clarence Town delegate
Kenneth Knowles told the
convention openly that "no
one is at tbe Clarence Town
table because we feel Mike has
been wrongly treated. If Mike
and Sir Roland are away from
this party then I will go to and
you can cross Clarence Town
off your books."
The tone of former PLPs
and non-UBP members was
however, that the unity of the
party must come first and that
those who belonged to it must
be prepared to abide by its
laws.
Observed Killarney delegate
L. Garth Wright Sr.: "What
some of the members are
trying to do is break up our
party. We have got to realize, if
we bring these men back, how
they are going to conduct
themselves with the party's
leadership.
"Sir Roland is older than I
am. He knows parliamentary
procedure, and he knows right
from wrong. You may feel Sir
Roland has a great following in
this country, but remember, he
was the Premier when he lost
the country."
While he respected Sir
Roland, Mr. Wright said, Sir
Roland was only one member
of the party. "I want to feel I
have so much rights in this
party as he does," he declared.
WARNING GIVEN
Warning delegates that they


held the future of the FNM in
their hands, he cautioned that
if they made the wrong
decision the same thing would
happen again.
"We don't know when an
election will be called," Mr.
Wright advised. "It took 18
months to straighten ourselves
out to have a convention.
Unless we hear from Sir
Roland personally, as well as
the others, that they are
prepared to abide by the
party's constitution, then we
should throw the book at
them.
Senator Arthur Foulkes, the
last speaker before the luncheon
adjournment, described the
resolution as "the most serious
thing to be brought before this
party." He asked delegates to
weigh carefully the
consequences of making a
foolish decision.
The FNM, he said, had been
put together precisely to avoid
the destructive views in both
the UBP and PLP. Men had to
leran to give and take, and Sir
Roland had not yet learned
how to give and take.
And referring to public
statements by all three,
Senator Foulkes pointed out
that the essence of the
resolution was to make them
members of the FNM whether
they wanted to be or not.
"I made my stand with the
PLP," he declared "and I took
my licks, and Sir Roland has to
take his. If a member cannot
identify withth the philosophy of
his party then he has the right
to leave.All Sir Roland's public
statements indicate he doesn't
want to come back, and I will
not beg him to come
back."
"The trouble with us is that
we spoil our leaders into
believing they are some gods,"
he charged.
While the leadership was
spending hours trying to keep
the FNM together the three
members were out causing
problems, and if they were
re-admitted the position would
be the same.
The convention should be
grateful that it had a leader
with sufficient patience to
keep the party together in spite
of such attacks, the Senator
admonished.

FACT AND FANTASY 3


TO WIND up this little series
of articles on the theme of fact
and fantasy, here are two
hands. The first is drawn from
actual play, while the second
was dreamed up by the
tortured imagination of the
expert, who has nothing better
to do than to construct bridge
nightmares.
From real life, then, here is
the first offering, a hand from
a rubber where North and
South had finally made it
game-all, but only at some cost
to themselves, because East
and West were tough
opponents, bidding with great
daring, but being equally ready
to crack down on any trace of
recklessness from North or
South.
This had, to some extent,
sent the North-South pair into
their shell, only emerging when
they had plenty of points to
bid with, while East and West
frequently sent their craft onto
the waters bearing only the
most slender of armaments.
I sat South. We had just
contributed another 200 to the
enemy for an over-ambitious
3NT, and I was then dealt this
genuine Yarborough:
832
3 2
8 7 3 2
8752
Well, I thought, as I sorted
my miserable collection of
spots into place, that's the end
of the rubber at last. And
about time, too, I added to
myself, because we've got to
the place where we can't afford
to win it any more. But it
didn't go like that. East was
the dealer, and the auction
started like this:
E S W N
1 C pass I D dble
2 D pass pass dble
3 D pass pass dble
4 D pass pass dble
pass ?
This is a familiar enough
situation to those who have
held such cards in such
situations. The picture seems
clear enough. East has a
genuine club bid, with good
diamond support. West, who
made just one bid, then passed
thereafter, had just enough for
his ID response. As South has
nothing but rubbish, that
leaves room for at least 20


points in the North hand, and
possibly more.
But seeing the picture and
deciding what to do about it
are two different things. First,
I had to examine the merits, if
any, of a pass. Could we defeat
4D doubled? I had no way of
knowing, but I knew that if
they scraped home, they would
get to Game as a result of the
double, and I wasn't prepared
to face that bitter
consequence.
So if I was going to bid,
what was available that didn't
look like outright disaster? I
could think of only three bids
of any kind, and I didn't like
any of them. I could bid 5 of a
minor suit, asking partner to
choose the final contract, so
that my hand would appear as
dummy, keeping the strength
hidden from the defence.
But it seemed that to do so
would be to raise the ievel
dangerously high. I could bid
4NT, which in his wildest
dreams partner could not
mistake for Balckwool in that
sequence, and would give him
the same options, but with the
same disadvantage.
Or I could grit my teeth, and
bid my Spade "suit" at the
4-level, on the assumption that
North was rich in both majors.
To the accompaniment of
subdued gritting noises, then,
the words "4 Spades"
stumbled out. A little to my
surprise, there was no more
bidding, not even a double
from East or West. The 10 of
clubs was led, and this was the
full deal.

I lost a Spade, a Heart and a
Club only, making 4 with ease,
as anybody would, and we
claimed the rubber with a sigh
of relief. How would you and
your partner have handled the
bidding?
From Hugh Darwen comes

Mr. Darwen doesn't explain
how South came to be playing
in 7 Diamonds when East has a
7 Spades contract which he can
bid and make in his sleep. but
he tells us that West leads a
club against South's 7D,
dummy winning. Fast
discarding a Spade, and Suth
a Heart.
North now leads the King of
Diamonds. If East should
throw a Heart, South overtakes
with the Ace. If East throws a


Spade. South plays low.
Whichever way East decides'.
South can set up a winn'r i
one of the major suits by
cross-ruffing, thereby making a
Grand Slam on the magnificent
total of 12 points.

ro the lover of squeeze play.
this is no doubt caviare; to the
hardened bridge player, this
kind of excerise has little
interest, because it is so far
removed from reality as to be
slightly insane. To me, its only
redeeming feature is that it
helps to illuminate a general
principle in this case, that of
the squeeze even though
there is an air of the bizarre
over the whole proceedings.

Sawyer showed his worth in
the first game when he picked
a total of six strikes in the
battle that was not decided
until the final frame. His final
two strikes in the tenth frame
gave Pritchard's the game.
Behind the bowling of
Bradley Friesen, Star picked tip
Pritchard's 13 handicap pins
and held a 21 points tie by the
fifth frame. Though Star had
the edge through the following
four frames, Sawyer's lifted
Pritchard's to victory.
Albert Rodgers who rolled a
160 in Pritchard's first game
joined in their attack in the
second game with a strong 189.
He had five strikes along the
way.

Sawyers, untouched in his
second game six-strike 211 was
again the key figure in
Pritchard's victory.
League leading bowler Pat
Sweeting and Friesen kept Star
in contention respectively
rolling 190 and 178. This
however was not enough to
offset the determined
Pritchard's squad who held on
to the end.
Although his remaining
team-members bowled below
the 150 half way mark, Sawyer
was still outstanding in his five
strike 200 which went a far
way in keeping Pritchard's on
top through the game.

this season with their attacking

played at the Garfunkel
Auditorium and basketball
fans are welcomed to cheer
on what could be the new
inter-school senior boys
basketball champions.
