DISPUTE OVER WHEN NEW CONTRACT FOR

HOTEL WORKERS WILL TAKE EFFECT


After only


hotel


3


union


negotiations break down


By Mike Lothian
THE HOTEL CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS have stalled after only three days of meetings, and the attitudes of
both sides make it clear that it will take action by the Labour Ministry to avoid work-stoppages and reopen the


talks.
The break-down came on
Friday. The issue in dispute
was when the provisions of the
new contract will take effect.
The current two-year
agreement expires on January
6.
The Hotel and Catering
Workers Union wanted a
commitment that wage
increases would be retroactive
to November 1, and that the
rest of the contract's provisions
would be effective January 7,
regardless of when negotiations
are completed and the new
contract signed, president
David Knowles told The
Tribune.
Association executive
director Trevelyan Cooper said
his side "generously" offered
to make the entire contract
effective January 7, provided
the new agreement was
completed and signed by the
end of January. That
arrangement would allow nine
weeks to complete thE
negotiations, a period Mr.
Cooper termed "ample."
The Union rejected the
compromise and "withdrew"
from the meeting, Mr. Cooper
said.
WAIT TO HEAR
Mr. Knowles said this
morning that Tuesday and
Wednesday last week were
spent on fruitless discussion of
proposed amendments to the
recognition agreement. The
Association wants to have 13
categories of workers removed
from the bargaining unit. but
the Union wants to retain all
current categories and add one,
security workers.
When it became obvious that
early agreement on that point
was impossible, discussion of it
was temporarily abandoned,
and when the talks resumed on
Friday after a one-day break,
the Union made its
unsuccessful bid for a
commitment from manage-
ment on the effective
dates of the new contract's
provisions.
Mr. Knowles said this


But, he added, "we said we
would try to make Price
Control work and I think we
have made it work."
The cost of living, and
price controls, became an issue
in the House when Opposition
Leader Kendal Isaacs sought a
committee to consider all
matters pertaining to rising
living costs.
Marsh Harbour
representative Errington
Watkins succeeded however in
broadening the committee's
scope to also consider the
effects of price control.
"I am happy that someone
would want to look at the
effects of price control,
because the merchants want to
make as much as they can."


CERAMIC

FRUIT PYRAMIDS



SNASSAU ONLY


DAVID KNOWLES
'waiting to hear'

irmonrini u hat the Union is
"waiting to hear" whether
management might have
changed its mind.
He said the workers would
wait for "a couple of days"
and "if we don't hear from
them we will do what we have
to do. We are going to wait a
couple days to hear from them
and after that we will have to
deal with the situation in the
h'3i vav we cn "
NOTHINt TO SAY
Mr. Cooper told The
Tribune that as far as the
Association is concerned "we
made our proposal and they
rejected it and with that they
got up and left. They didn't
ask us to do anything further
and we didn't promise to do
anything. That's where the
matter was left. We've nothing
more to say. We have given
them our offer and they have
rejected it."
The Union wants the
negotiated pay rises to be
retroactive to last month
because the current contract
made its wage provisions
retroactive to November, 1971.
The Workers want to ensure
that the new contract's
provisions relating to working
conditions take effect as soon
as the current contract expires.
Mr. Knowles said, because "for
six years we have always gone
over the expiry date of the old
contract before getting a new
one, and the people lose."
lie pointed out that the last
contract expired on August 7.

2 file appeal in


FNM murder case


WENDELL "RED"
BURROWS. 25, and Phillip
"Polka" Humes, 20, convicted
in the Supreme Court on
November 10 for the Perpall
Tract shooting death of Free
National Movement supporter
Raymond Barry Major. 25,
have filed appeals against their
conviction and sentence.
Both men, found guilty by
an all male jury, were
sentenced to be hanged by Mr.
Justice James Smith. Humes,
charged with abetment of
murder was told during the
sentencing that "the law
provides that a person who
abets an offence shall suffer
the same penalty as the person
who commits the offence."
Humes' attorney, Mr. David
C. Bethell has listed as his


ground of appeal that the
verdict and conviction cannot
be supported, being "against
weight of evidence adduced."
It has also been included in
the list of grounds of appeal
filed on behalf of Burrows by
counsel Lawrence P. J.
Trenchard with the Supreme
Court Registry Friday.
He also contends that the
judge erred in ruling Burrows'
statement admissible and
misdirected the jury by
withdrawing from them the
defense of duress or coercion.
And he states that there was
further misdirection to the jury
with the judge "failing to
direct them to consider
whether the prosecution
provided an answer to that of
the defence."

COUNCIL TO

MEET ON

CASINO ISSUE

WHILE Dr. H. W. Brown
fired a scathing broadside at
government's unilateral
declaration on casino gambling
last week, the Bahamas
Christian Council is to hold an
executive council meeting
before commenting on the
matter.
Finance Minister A. D.
Hanna announced in the House
of Assembly last Wednesday
that government would take
over complete ownership and
control of the country's three
casinos after 1976. On
Thursday, the Minister
"clarified" his initial statement
saying the Paradise Island
casino licence would operate
until December 1977.
The outspoken Dr. Brown,
once an ardent supporter of the
Progressive Liberal Party
g,,'.. rnm.ii nt, lashed out on
Thursday and accused the
politicians of "taking this
country straight to hell."
l)r. Brown was angered that
the Deputy Prime Minister
should have made the casino
announcement without first
*..-'iriCL the people and
o inpletelh ignoring the
Bahamas Christian Council
(The Council is on record as far
back as 1965 as being opposed
to gambling.)
Fr. Joseph Perna. secretary
to the Council, told The
Tribune today that the
Bahamas Christian Council.
which meets monthly, had just
met last Tuesday "and all this
I casino) matter has blown up
since then."
lHe said the executive
council members would meet,
probably today, and formulate
their thoughts on the question,
but would still have to report
back to the member body, who
would then determine whether
they agreed with the
executive's decision or not.
"And as the Council is
comprised of various member
churches it will be up to
individual churches to decide if
they want to go along'with the
council," said Fr. Perna.
Dr. Brown, in his statement,
challenged the Bishops and
laity to rise up and call a
solemn Assembly "and thus
avert the judgment that will
soon fall on us."
Late this afternoon the
Council made the following
press release signed by Dr. R.
E. Cooper, Council president:
"The Executive of t he
Bahamas Christian Council
wishes to state for public
information that the Council
has not yet been able to discuss
the implications of
government's recent policy
statement on casino gambling
nor the proposal to legalise the
numbers racket.
"The Council will be doing
so in the course of its business
as it continues to be concerned
with whatever is happening in
Bahamian Society."

COMET NOW


VISIBLE TO


NAKED EYE
By Warren E. Leary
AP science writer
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) -
Comet Kohoutek finally has
become visible to the naked
eye. But you have to get up
pretty early in the morning to
see it.
Kohoutek became visible
without the aid of telescopes
or binoculars late last week,
appearing in the southeast sky
about an hour before sunrise.
The comet looks like a big,
tailless star about 20 degrees
above the horizon. Only those
with a clear, unobstructed view
can see it.
Scientists once billed
Kohoutek as the "Comet of
the Century," but have
tempered their earlier
predictions about its size and
brightness.
However, scientists at the
Smithsonian Astrophysical
Observatory here, the clearing
house for comet data, say
Kohoutek still will be quite a
sight.
Kohoutek will swing around
the Sun in late December and
disappear from sight for a few
days. Until that time, it can be
seen right before sunrise, but
each day a little lower on the
horizon. By Dec. 10, it will
appear only 10 degrees above
the horizon and by Dec. 20,
almost on the line between sky
and Earth
Scientists warn viewers not
to look into the rising Sun
because the rays can cause
permanent eye damage.
Observers using telescopes
should exercise added caution,
they say, because the
instrument can damage the eye
more quickly.
After Kohoutek circles the
sun and starts back on its
journey out of the solar
system, it will become visible
in the early evening at the
beginning of the new
year.
The best viewing of
Kohoutek from all parts of the
United States should be from
Jan. 10 to Jan. 20, just after
sunset. At that time, the comet
will appear 20 to 40 degrees
above the horizon in the
southwest, each night
appearing higher in the sky.
Kohoutek should look like a
white feather against a black
velvet background. If the
comet fulfills expectations, its
head should look like a very
large ctar with a tail streaming
out across a sixth of the
distance of the sky.
Those wishing to
photograph Kohoutek will
need a camera with a fast
lens, preferably F2.8 or better,
which can make time
exposures with fast film, such
as ASA 400, Tri-X Pan for
black and white or high speed
Ektachrome for colour.
Photo experts say mount the
camera on a tripod, focus on
infinity, leave the lens wide
open and do a series of
exposures from 60 seconds to
160th of a second long, cutting
the time in half with each
exposure.
This range of exposure
should give the photographer
several good prints of
Kohoutek.

Bol is back
SAN FRA.NCISC'0 -- Concert halls were reserved
anonymously. Arrage-ments were worked out clandestinely. But
one of the best-kept secrets in rock music is out- Bob Dylan is
making his first nrnoir-ide tour in eighth years.
In the casual siylmee that has become his trademark, Dylan's
comeback was annoiu-inced in newspaper advertisements in 2 1
cities which said simp ly Dylan-The-Band" and gave details about
buying concert tickets.
B. t that was enouaghfor Dylan fans who have been waiting for
years for the recluie legend of the rock-folk world to return to
the concert scene.
The master plire- r of Dylan's comeback is promoter Bill
Graham, who manage-d to reserve nearly two dozen top concert
halls across the count rry without telling their owners the name of
the show's star.
To discourage scalpers, tickets are being sold only bv mail with
a maximum of four per customer. But Graham said he has

The bearded entrepreneur predicted a sellout crowd of

14.
"You"ll have the l5-year--olds who've listened to Dylan records
and heard about him front their older brothers and sisters and
you'll have the adults who were Bobby Dylan fans 10 years ago
and are still fans today ,"he said. (AP).


vice presidential papers to the
The documents show he
paid $38,646 in federal taxes
soon after he took office on his
1968 income as a lawyer. And
they disclose that $30,916 was
withheld from his paycheck in
the first five months of this
year for his 1973 taxes.
Nixon's salary as president is
$200,000 a year. He also
receives a tax-free $50.000
annual expense allowance, and
records disclose he has made
substantial profits on real
estate transactions since taking
office.
The information is
contained in a series of
statements and documents
scheduled to be sent to
members of Congress this week
and then released publicly as
part of the White House effort
to disprove allegations about
the President's personal
finances.
Some information on
Nixon's income tax payments
had surfaced earlier such as
the small amounts for 1970
and 1971 disclosed in October
by the Providence
Journal-Bulletin.
At the heart of the
controversy is the estimated

EUROPE shivered its way
through a stay-at-home Sunday
as the energy crisis began to
bite deeper and temperatures
dropped below freezing.
Even the Pope didn't escape
his St. Peter's Square
congregation fell to a sparse
1,200, instead of the expected

Italy banned Sunday driving,

Germany.
And in Britian a motor
organization likened finding an
open gas station to "finding an

Britain had it worst of all -
on top of the oil crisis it was
hit by overtime bans in coal
mines and electricity power
stations. A nationwide six
percent voltage reduction was
imposed and road traffic
dropped to one quarter of
normal as motorists heeded a
government appeal for
economy.
The motoring organizations
reported 95 per cent of gas

the remainder imposing their
own form of rationing.
In Germany, there was just
the faintest shadow of the cold

But this time it was a West

In Berlin itself there was
little of the high-spirted

MURDERER

CORONA

STABBED

30 TIMES
VACAVILLE Juan
Corona, convicted of
murdering 25 farm workers.
was stabbed about 30 times in
an attack at the prison
hospital, police said.
Corona was reported ini
critical condition after surgery
during which his left eye had
to be removed.
Officials at the California.
Medical Facility at Vacaville
said they did not know what
prompted the stabbing which
occurred Saturday night.
They were questioning four
men but would not identify
them.
A small knife with a
two-inch blade was found near
Corona's cell, they said.
Phillip Guthrie, assistant to
the director of California's
Department of Corrections,
said Corona was in surgery for
three hours Saturday night. He
said that in addition to losing
his left eye, Corona also
suffered extensive wounds in
the right eye and received
serious chest and abdominal
wounds.
It was not known
immediately whether Corona
was blinded by the attack.
Corona. 40, farm labour
contractor, was convicted last
January of murdering 25 farm
workers and drifters whose
hacked bodies were unearthed
from shallow graves in
northern California in 1971.
He was sentenced to 25
consecutive life terms but is
eligible for parole after seven
years.
The prosecution won its
conviction on circumstantial
evidence, telling the jury of 10
men and two women that a
search of Corona's home and
garage in Yuba City Calif..
turned up a machete with an
18-inch blade, a meat-cleaver, a
double-bladed axe and a
wooden club with stains. No
explanation of motive
developed in the six-month
trial.
Corona has repeatedly
proclaimed his innocence and
had been hoping to win a new
trial on grounds that his
attorney failed to present a
proper defense. No defense
witnesses were called.
In an interview last August,
he said he was. studying
English, mathematics and
typing for three hours every
day so he could get a better job
if he is released.
The stabbing of Corona
came less than a week after the
stabbing death in a
Massachusetts prison of Albert
De Salvo, who once claimed he
was the Boston Strangler.
De Salvo was found dead of
stab wounds in his cell in
Walpole State Prison's hospital
section last Monday.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
During our last visit to Grand Cayman my wife and I
exchanged greetings with an American couple every day when we
met them in the lobby of the hotel or on -the beach. They were
from Florida and had a strong southern accent.
When they heard I was from Nassau they became enthusiastic.
They said they had spent a memorable vacation at a hotel on
Paradise Island. They talked mostly about a taxi driver ... I think
they said his name was Bain ... who apparently was the main
factor in making their stay there pleasant.
At the time I didn't feel there was enough to this passing
comment for a story. Now I am sorry I didn't take the name of
the taxi driver because this incident illustrates how important
human contact and behaviour is in the development of a
tourist business which is based entirely on the cultivation of
confidence and goodwill.

This conversation came to mind last night when I was having
dinner with a doctor who has recently retired from practice.
No ... it was not one of the Crippled Children's doctors who
served the Bahamian people on a voluntary basis for
nearly 20 years and in the end got a swift kick in the pants from
Health Minister Loftus Roker.
He was a friend of mine who was responsible on my
recommendation for bringing a medical convention to Nassau
some years ago.
We were talking about how much the doctors had enjoyed
their visit on that occasion.
I asked him whether they were thinking of going back to the
island. He said that at a recent meeting of the association the
Secretary read a letter from the manager of the hotel at which
they held the convention inviting them to return for a second
meeting.
"What was the decision?" I asked.
"There was no formal decision," he laughed. "Nearly all the
members exploded with the same exclamation 'Do they think we
are crazy!' There was no need for a vote after that explosion," he
said.
Later in the evening he commented that "there is so much
emphasis on blackness in the Bahamas today that my friends no
longer feel welcome or secure in the islands. I certainly have no
desire to go back to Nassau."
This doctor, who had many important patients from Nassau up
to the time he retired, had been a frequent visitor to the island.
lie has many friends in the Bahamas but he will not go there any
more. So he says anyway.

There are two interesting cases of study in contrast.
On the one hand, the government has built an image for the
islands that turns people away.
The image the government has created has been reflected in the
hostile attitude of many of our people who come in contact with
visitors to the islands.
On the other hand, a single taxicab driver ... by his courtesy,
kindness and intelligence ... impressed a couple so much that they
took away with them happy memories of their stay at Paradise
Island.

The Cayman Islands are today using a very effective piece of
advertising. They flash on the TV screen a picture of the English
governor of the Colony inspecting a guard of honour of the police
force with the Union Jack flying from a flagstaff.
Their message is that the picture represents all that is strong,
stable, friendly and responsible in the eyes of the TV viewer.;
Britain has grown weak in the councils of the world but the
British emblem still conveys a message of stability, law and order
... and justice to the people of the world.

You know ... it's all very sad. Ever since my first tour of the
Caribbean about 15 years ago 1 have been emphasizing the
dangerous course British islands in this hemisphere were following
in the desire of their new-found leaders for independence from
Britain and the establishment of Black Power in the islands.
In the early days I emphasized the protection afforded the
islands by patrols of the Royal Navy and the stability provided by
the link with sterling of the islands' currencies.
On a later tour of the Caribbean I got a broader picture of the
importance of Britain to the islands when I saw a British steamer
calling at the banana producing islands to take on shipments for
the London market where they were able to successfully compete
with other banana producing areas because of a preferential
tariff enjoyed by Commonwealth countries on the market in
Britain.
Some of the islands in the Caribbean are very fertile but not so
fertile as South and Central American countries where many of
them have the added advantage of "slave" labour at their service.
I listened to an interesting report on Brazil in a TV travel series
on Sunday evening when the commentator said that the
agricultural wealth of a country is measured by the depth of its
top soil.
He gave the figures for the U.S. as compared with Brazil. I have
forgotten the exact figures but Brazil's top soil is over three times
as deep as the best land areas in the U.S. The figure was
something like 21 feet for Brazil. In the Bahamas a great deal of
farming is done in soil with a depth of six inches!
The film showed the spectacular growth of cities in that South
American nation which, it is believed, will one da) rival the
strength and importance of the U.S. on the American continent.
The islands in the Caribbean cannot hope to compete with
Central and South American nations in any field of agricultural
endeavour unless they have an assured market such as Britain has
kindly provided for their products up to the present time.
But that picture is fast disappearing with the entry of Britain
into the European Conmmnon Market where she will no longer he a
free agent on questions of trade.

S Now the Caribbean Islands are shaking in their boots because.

Cost of living in Bahamas


From Page I
to the PLP government taking
over. People tended to forget
that, he reminded members.
NO RIDES?
"Everyone took government
for a ride in those days. Now
on one is taking government
for a ride."
And then shifting to the
matter of employment, Mr.
Hanna contended that the
Bahamas' employment figures
were "very low" compared to
the rest of the world... "not
that unemployment is not a
cause of concern in the
Bahamas," he added in
afterthought. (lie mentioned
no comparative figures).
Suggesting that the
country's ills were due to the
Opposition, Mr. Hanna said the
Bahamas was still one of the
best countries in the world
"despite what the Opposition
has been doing."
In moving for appointment
of his committee, Mr. Issacs
noted that the cost of living
was probably one of the most
pressing problems besetting the
Bahamas today.
"Something must be done
about it in the Bahamas and
hopefully in other parts of the
world to which our economy is
most closely tied," he said.
The important thing was not
to relax and say that it was a
problem about which. nothing
could be done. Mr. lsaacs


suggested that government,
Opposition, business and
labour recognize the problem
and cooperate to find a
number of solutions within our
control.
While it was all well and
good for the Throne Speech to
talk of increasing real
production and saving, the
government was not adhering
to its own words.
FARMERS'PLIGHT
While the government talked
of increasing real production
there were complaints about
the lack of encouragement
being given Bahamian farmers.
Mr. Isaacs claimed
government was still persisting
in importing fruit from Haiti in
direct competition with
Bahamians. "This is a slap in
the face to Bahamian farmers,"
he declared.
The Opposition Leader said
he had heard Bahamian farmers
were capable of producing a
great deal of fruit and
vegetables, but what
encouragement was being given
them with such competition.
Because of some outaateu
regulation about size,
Bahamian bananas were not
being accepted at the Produce
Exchange. "This," Mr. Isaacs
argued, "is one area where the
cost of living can be brought
down just a little.
OIL CRISIS
With regard to the oil crisis,


for the first time, they are beginning to see the handwriting on
the wall.
They got their first real jolt recently when the U.S. reduced
their annual sugar quota from 220,000 to 24,000.
They complain that Uncle Sam has taken this action because
the Big Four Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad and Guyana have
become buddy-buddy with Castro's Cuba.
Well ... why not?
In life we are all faced daily with choices. None of us are
completely free. There is a price for everything in life. When you
make a decision you have to know whether you are prepared to
pay the p'ice for your action.
I know what this means because many times in my life I have
consciously made decisions for which I have paid dearly. But
when you do this ... you have no reason to complain when the
price is exacted.
If the Big Four want to strengthen the disruptive influence of
Castro in this hemisphere then they must look to him for the
support they need.
But now they see another threat to their sugar market looming
large on the horizon.
They are concerned over the way negotiations are going for the
quantity of sugar the Commonwealth industry will be allowed to
sell in the enlarged European Common Market.
These islands are no longer dealing directly with a benevolent
Mother Britain. They are now dealing with a group of nations of
which Britain is only a unit. And most of these nations have the
interests of their own sugar beet industry to serve. They have no
sentimental links with former British colonies and they have no
reason to care whether they sink or swim.

At the present time Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and
Trinidad have a guaranteed annual quota of 750,000 tons on the
British market under the Commonwealth Sugar Agreement. But
this agreement as do all other Commonwealth agreements die
on Britain's entry into E.C.M.
And with it will die the links that held the British
Commonwealth of Nations together. I have been saying this for a
long time but leaders in these islands have been so inflated with
the idea of Black Power that they have been blind to all other
considerations ... The Bahamas, like all the rest of them, will learn
the lesson that, in life, there is a price to pay for every decision.
Can these former British islands in the Caribbean afford to pay
the price for the stupidity and blindness of their leaders?
A news report on the sugar situation reveals that "French
opposition to the sugar quota the Caribbean islands need for the
industry to survive has caused delay in final agreement in the
E.C.M. They are under pressure from beet sugar producers at
home who see an opportunity to increase their own beet sugar
production to serve the enlarged European market."
Britain went into the E.C.M. on the understanding that the
interests of her Commonwealth family would be given prime
consideration but now P.J. Patterson, Jamaica's Minister of
Trade, is complaining that the Europeans have "failed to translate
their promises into reality."
He said that sugar is "a major factor for social and political
stability in the West Indies but it is an industry which cannot be
developed because its future is so uncertain.
"It would be disastrous if at a time when we are trying to
reorganize and revitalize the industry its future should be called
into question," lie said.

At this time it is interesting to recall that in the 1600's sugar
was such an important commodity that Britain was considering
handing over the French area of (Canada to France in exchange
for the French sugar producing islands of Martinique and
Guadeloupe in the West Indies!
There is an enormously greater demand for sugar in the world
today than existed over 300 years ago but there is also a vaster
field of production that makes this item of household food a very
competitive article in the world market.
Well ... as I said before ... by their own decision and choice ...
the Bahamas and the West Indies are now riding a train to hell on
a one-way ticket. And there isn't anything anyone can do today
to reverse the course they have chosen to take.

An extraordinary thing is that people still ask me when I plan
to return to Nassau.
These Bahamian people still don't seem to understand what is
ahead for the Bahamas.
I feel that I have been fair and perfectly honest with the
Bahamian people.
For years I told them that I would go as far as the gates of hell
with them. But when the time came that I felt that the country
had crossed the point of no return we would have to part.
I felt and still feel that on September 19th last year the
Bahamian people voted themselves across hell's gate .. and that
was the moment we parted permanently.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
When bad men collmbine, Ihe good must associate: else the\ ill
ltall, one b) one, an unptied sacrifice in a contemnptible struggle


Mr. Isaacs suggested that the
country's leaders, by their
example, could .'.... i.e .' all
Bahamians to save and
conserve electricity.
"If government is prepared
to set the right example, the
people will be prepared to
follow."

The Leader wondered
about the wisdom of putting
up Christmas lights in the
midst of an energy crisis and
at the cost of a great deal of
money to consumers.

Again on the matter of
saving. Mr. Isaacs noted that a
contributor to rising living
costs and ness taxes was the
money which went "down the
drain" on inflated contracts.
In particular he mentioned
the Abaco road when
"$300,000 was just skimmed
off the top."
"If that is the example
government is going to set then
there is little hope for keeping
down the cost of living."
Mr. Isaacs charged that if
government were to do
something about the economy
more and more money would
go into the Treasury front
traditional sources and there
would be no need for
increasing taxes.
By extension, if there was
full employment people would
be earning money to pay the
unavoidable higher costs.
And again he emphasized
the need for the country's
leaders to set the example.
Named to the committee
were: Mr. lsaacs: Mike
Lightbourn (Ind.); Norman
Solomon (FNM); George
Mackey (PLP); Carlton Francis
(PLP): Arthur Hanna (PLP)
and George Smith (PLP).


BUCK UP BAHAMAS


For three years I saved for
my "dream holiday" in the
Bahamas. and at the end of
October arrived in Nassau. I
have rarely been so
disappointed. My hotel I have
no complaints about. The staff
were courteous and obviously
industrious.
It was .hIA ri .. n" Nassau I
found outrageous. Here was
clearly a once gracious setting.
Now I found it full of 1. ,V ,
over run with rats and drug
pushers. Both are pests and
easily disposed of. let rid of
the rubbish choking the gutters
and you will soon be id of the
rats
Let a plainclothes policeman
walk along Bay Street and you
would soon have a court full of
"p pushers.'
You will see both rats and
pushers should you venture
along Bay Street day or


night if you do not break
your leg in the process. The
pavements must he in a worse
state of repair than a mud path
in Central Africa,


So buck up Bahamas, or you
won't have any tourists to
compalin soon!

An office memo would


clear up this problem

By Abigail Van Buren
l 1973 b Chicam Tribtne-N. Y. News Synd., Ilc.
DEAR ABBY: I would like your advice concerning a
problem I am having with a secretary who has been work-
ing for me less than six months.
At first she called me "Mr. B."--then a few weeks ago
she started calling me by my first name.
I didn't approve of this first name business, but I didn't
know how to tell her without hurting her feelings or getting
her angry with me.
How can I get her to call me "Mr. B." again without
making a federal case of it? S. C. BOSS
DEAR BOSS: First, what do YOU CALL HER? If you
are using her first name, start addressing her as "Miss" or
"Mrs." and tell her you'd like her to call you "Mr. B." If
you're already calling her "Miss" or "Mrs.," simply ask
her to please call you "Mr. B." If you're yellow about
telling her face to face-give it to her in black and white-
in an office memo.

DEAR ABBY: After I die, I want to be cremated. Then
I want my ashes to be placed in an envelope and left in a
certain man's mailbox with the following message: "How-
ard, you always said I would wind up with you. I love you.
Goodby, Annette."
I went with this man for 17 years, and then he dropped
me like a hot potato and married somebody else. How can
I arrange to get my last wish? A. D.
DEAR A. D.: There are strict laws concerning crema-
tion and the disposition of ashes which may make your last
wish impossible. You will have to get the final word from a
lawyer.

DEAR ABBY: I am a divorcee, trying to support my-

A RECORD entry of 123

He was speaking at the
awards dinner of the Ninth

Sheraton British Colonial
Iotel, on Saturday night.
Winner of the hunt and a

Tourism Minister Cleienrt
Maynard told the hundreds at
the dinner that seven ..'r, had
taken part in all the hunts.
Speaking of the independent
Bahamas, he said: "Critics say
we have no chance of success '"
But, he added, the Bahamas
would not be dismayed by
those critics.
"We are on our way and we
are going to make it "
lie said progress was
crowding in at a pace which
was almost frightening.
Education now occupied
number one spot in finances of
the Bahamas.
Mr. Maynard hoped that by
such gatherings as the treasure

international peace.

Law is more popular as


PRINCE( TON The
popularity of law as a career
has increased in the past
decade according to the Gallip
poll.
While the poll shows
medicine remains the top
choice among adults asked to
name the best profession for a
young man. the number
naming law as the leading
choice rose to 14 per cent front
6 per cent in 1962.
Among those under 30 yvar'.
old. law was chosen by 20 per
cent, compared with 8 per cent
in 1962.
The poll also shows that the
popularity of a teaching career
has declined after rising during
the 1960s. Ten per cent named
a teaching career as their
leading choice, compared to 12
per cent in 1967 and 1962 and
5 per cent in 1953 and 1950.
The 1,576 adults surveyed
across the country on Oct. 6-8
were given a list of nine
professions and asked:
"suppose a young man came to
you and asked your opinion


a career
about taking up a profession.
Assuming that he was qualified
to enter any to these
professions, which would you
first rccomment to hint?"
Twenty-eight per cent
named medicine, and the
Gallup organization noted it
has been the leading choice
since such polls were first
taken in 1950.
In the latest poll, law
displaced engineer-builder in
second place. Engineer-builder
was named as the best
profession by 13 per cent,
compared to 18 per cent in
1962.
The percentage results of the
poll, with 1962 figures in
parentheses, were: doctor 28
( 23), lawyer 14 (6),
engineer-builder 13 (18)
professor-teacher 10 (12),
business executive 10 (5),
dentist 7 (4), clergyman 7 (8),
government career 5 (7),
banker 2 (2), and other, none
or don't know 4(15). (AP).

A 67th MINUTE header by
Rob Stewart clinched a 1-0 win
for Red Lions over McAlpine
yesterday at Clifford Park,
giving the Lions their third
consecutive victory.
The Lions found the going
tough all the way against an
efficient and well disciplined
McAlpine side.
Overall, McAlpine looked
the better side on the day but
the Lions emerged as victors.
"I just don't know how we
lost. The Lions never really had
a shot on target throughout the
whole game but I guess that's
the way it goes," said
McAlpine coach Dick Wilson
after the game.
The Lions midfield trio of
Seville, .Stewart and Parnell
found their match in Baptiste,
Haywood and Jenner. Baptiste
did a fine job by keeping the
powerful Seville under control
in the middle.
With their midfield not
revelling in space, the Lions
forward line was not fed with
their usual quota of crosses and
through balls, while Gibbons
practically marked the elusive
Whitfield out of the game.
Crozier and Williams played
well together in the defence for
McAlpine, clearing aerial and
ground crosses with robot
efficiency.
The first 20 minutes saw
McAlpine on top and in the
4th minute Lawler nearly gave
the Clan an early lead but his
header hit the post.
Maples headed just wide in
from a Seville corner but the
the 26th minute for the Lions
Lions forwards were
continually foiled by the
McAlpine defence following
several constructive moves.
In the 53rd minute Moore,
playing his first game for
McAlpine blasted over the top
from 15 yards and seven
minutes later Simpson broke


through on his own but shot
wide.
McAlpine skipper Dave
Jenner forced a fine save from
Johnson a minute later from a
free kick but the Lions still
scored first when Knight
weaved his way down the right
wing and Stewart headed his
cross into the net to give the
Lions the lead.
Dick Wilson made his first
appearance on the field since
breaking his leg last December
in the 10th minute when he
substituted for Baptiste and
minutes later Haywood went
off suffering from cramp and
McAlpine lost their drive from
the middle.
Dale, making his debut in
the McAlpine goal, stopped the
Lions from scoring a second
goal in the 75th minute when
he saved brilliantly from a
Seville header from five yards.
Defending league
champions, Tropigas recorded
another convincing win in the
second game of the afternoon
when they hammered St.
Georges 4-0.
On yesterday's display
Tropigas appear to be regaining
their old form with Elliot and
Murray looking very sharp up
front.
However, skipper Randy
Rodgers will be absent from
the midfield for at least
another month after learning
last week that he must undergo
a cartilage operation on his
right knee.
Striker Bob Elliot opened
the scoring for Tropigas in the
24th minute.
With Tropigas dominating,
Laing made it 2-0 six minutes
later and in the second half
Elliott scored his second goal
and Brendan Grey netted the
fourth.


rushing total to an incredible
925 yards.
Earl Bostwick ran 12
times for 91 yards and caught
7 passes for an additional 152
yards while his fellow receiver
Don Huyler caught 3 TD passes
and ran four yards for another.
This was the fourth straight
loss for the Hurricanes who
won their first four games.
The irrepressible Sharkey
Martin ran 10 times for 92
yards to lead the Crushers to a
34-7 win over the league's
cellar dwellers, the Classic Pros.
The Classic Pros, playing
with only 15 players held the

points. They scored a meagre
16 of 58 -from the- field.
Woodside scored 14 and Bain

the free throw line in four
attempts.

the type of fighter who never
stops coming at his opponent
from the opening bell, Lloyd
will be going into this fight
with more confidence than

key to his combat, but word
from Lloyd's camp is that he
has in his favour not only
youth and speed but his
newest improvement of a
combination of steady
punches.
