Medical Association approve


Medical Bill amendments

THE AMENDMENTS TO THE MEDICAL BILL proposed by
Health Minister Loftus Roker this week have met with the
approval of the Medical Association of the Bahamas.


Dr. Kirkland Culmer President
of the Association, today issued a
statement congratulating Mr.
Roker on his "wise decision"
to delay passage of the Medical
Bill until "vitally important.
reasonable, and acceptable
amendments have been made."
Dr. Culmer said committees
from the Medical Association
of the Bahamas had been
communicating with the
Ministry of Health on this
matter for several years, and
its views, which did not differ
from those adopted by other
modern countries, are well
known to that Ministry.
"It is therefore very
refreshing and reassuring to
witness a definite effort by Mr.
Roker to produce a Bill which
will be, from its initial
enactment, beneficial and
acceptable to the people of this
country, the government and
the medical profession," Dr.
Culmer said.
The amendments were
foreshadowed by Mr. Roker in
the House Wednesday when
the Bill came up for debate. At
his request members agreed to
defer the final reading until the
pertinent amendments could
be suitably drafted.
The Bill as originally tabled,
empowered the Minister to
select three members of a
seven-man Medical Council. In
addition the Ministry of
Health's Chief Medical Officer


S DO'S & DON'T FOR
f ,tB IIR lAA1 rAfRDA


was to be ex-officio a member
of the council.
The remaining three
members were to be nominated
by a medical association.
The composition of the
Council had been a point of
dispute between the Health
Minister and the Medical
Association from the time a
draft of the Bill was forwarded
to the doctors for their
consideration.
Their recommendations
were apparently ignored
because when printed, the Bill
still contained the offending
clauses.
This was pointed out in a
Tribune story published
Tuesday, on the eve of the
House meeting.
Earlier that morning the
MAB Council was scheduled to
meet with Mr. Roker but the
Minister was out of town and
the meeting was therefore
cancelled. The doctors later
met with Mr. Roker
Wednesday morning when they
lodged their complaints.
The Minister was reportedly
non-commital at that time but
later informed the Council that
he proposed making
amendments to the Bill.
These amendments will
propose that two members be
appointed by the Minister
acting in his discretion, two
appointed on the advice of a
medical association and two
appointed by agreement
between the Minister and the
association. The CMO would
be the seventh member.

MINISTER

TRIES TO

KEEP HOTEL

TALKS GOING
REPEATED DEADLOCKS
in the off-again, on-again hotel
contract negotiations have kept
Labour Minister Clifford L.
Darling busy as a conciliator,
and be had to step in again this
week to keep the talks going.
Negotiators for the Hotel
and Catering Workers Union
and the Hotel Employers
Association hit a blank wall
last Friday when they tried to
make provision for the
effective date of the new
contract if as is expected in
some quarters the talks go
beyond the January 6
expiration of the existing
two-year agreement.
The unionists walked out of
the meeting, and Tribune
enquiries confirmed that
neither side saw any avenue of
escape from the dilemma, and
that neither side saw any point
in further meetings unless the
other modified its position.
That deadlock was ended by
personal contact between
Hotel Union president David
Knowles and Hotel Employers
Association executive
committee member George
Myers. The two met
accidentally at the Nassau
Beach Hotel Monday evening,
and as a result a meeting was
set for Tuesday morning.
DEADLOCK
However, the meeting again
ended in deadlock, and Mr.
Darling was advised.
The Minister then called a
meeting for Wednesday, with
himself in the chair. A second
Darling-chaired meeting was
held Thursday.
Whether the deadlock on the
effective date of the new
contract was ended by
compromise, or whether the
issue was set aside entirely for
the time being, is not known.
But as a result the union and
management negotiators met
Friday without the benefit of
the Minister's presence, and
negotiations were continuing
today.
The contract dispute has
already sparked on three-hour
wild-cat strike against eight
major hotels, and Mr. Knowles
has warned his members that
further strikes "cannot be
avoided."
And following a broadcast
warning by the Minister that
employers would be authorised
to fire wild-cat strikers, Mr.
Knowles told unionists to be
prepared to protect their jobs
"by force, if necessary."
FEDERICO AGROUND
THE cruise ship Federico C
en route from Port Everglades
to Nassau with 600 passengers
was reported aground this
afternoon two miles off the
coast of Florida. It was
expected to be refloated at
high tide.


members agreed unanimously
in a meeting last night to file
dispute over the stalled
contract negotiations.
The Association won
recognition from management
as sole bargaining agents for
Bahamasair's pilots shortly
after the airline was established
by Government in June.
"A contract has been under
negotiation for the past 90
days, with repeated refusal of
Bahamasair to discuss any wage
increase or financial benefits,"
today's release said.
RENEGED
"It was also decided," it
continued, "that the case of
Capt. Perry Knowles will have
to be referred back to the
Labour Board for an impartial
decision. Bahamasair had
originally agreed to Capt.
Knowles' having a (ground)
position in the company, and
have now reneged on this and
offer no employment, as a
direct order from the' general
manager, Mr. Max Healey."
"It is obvious that the
general manager of Bahamasair
is not about to negotiate
anything that would be an
advantage to the Bahama
Islands Airline Pilots
Association."
An Association spokesman
added that Mr. Healey was
obviously unwilling to
anything wages or improved
hours or working conditions
which would increase the
airline's operating expenses.
He said after three months
of talks there is no agreement
yet on any section of the
proposed work contract.
Capt. Knowles ditched a
Bahamasair Aero-Commander
in the sea about 15 miles off
Andros while on an earl)
morning test flight.
The pilot was rescued
uninjured.
OUT OF FUEL
A company investigation of
the incident revealed evidence
that fuel may have been
removed from the aircraft's
tanks the night before the test
flight, but it was considered
Capt. Knowles' responsibility
to check the fuel gauges before
take-off.
The pilot has maintained the
tanks were full when he left
Nassau International Airport,
and that both engines
inexplicably quit while the
plane was over water.
The 23-year-old pilot was
dismissed on October 8, and
two days later the Association
registered the dispute.
Tourism and Aviation
Minister Clement T. Maynard
has been severely criticised by
unionists for his remark at the
PLP convention in Freeport on
October 18 that Knowles was
fired "for very good reasons."
The Minister described the
pilot's attitude as being that "I
am Bahamian and I am a pilot
and I deserve a job whether 1
meet your standards or
not. '
'IMPOSSIBLE'
Commented the Minister:
"I will not proceed any
further except to say that
Bahamians will have to
remember that there is still
such a word in the English
language as 'discipline."
Reg Grant, president of the
Airport, Airline and Allied
Workers Union, although his
union does not represent
pilots, complained that Mr.
Maynard's comment made it
"impossible" for any Labour
Ministry official to make any
ruling which would make it
appear Mr. Maynard was
wrong.


Monetary Authority


Asst. Manager resigns

By Nicki Kelly
MR. ANTHONY A. THOMPSON, (pictured) assistant manager
of the Bahamas Monetary Authority and manager in charge of
Exchange Control, has resigned from the Monetary Authority
effective December 31.
Mr. Thompson's resignation was confirmed today by Mr. T.
Baswell Donaldson, chairman of the Authority.
"I don't want to comment further at this time. I will, however,
be better able to discuss my future plans early in January," Mr.
Thompson told The Tribune this morning.
He said he still expected to be involved in the financial
community but in the private sector.
Mr. Thompson has been with the Monetary Authority since its
inception in 1968.
An honours graduate of Dalhousie University with a B. Comm.
degree, he worked as assistant secretary with the Ministry of
Finance from 1967 to 1968 before being attached to the
Monetary Authority.


Vesco could face extradition


should he flee
ARGENTINA, Dec. 7 (AP)
American financier Robert L.
Vesco could be liable for
extradition in Argentina
despite a court ruling in his
favour, qualified sources said
Friday.
Vesco came to Argentina in
October prepare a safe haven
in case he found it necessary,
officials said. He was granted
an immigrant visa which now
may or may not now be valid.
He also obtained a ruling
from federal judge Luis Maria
Rodriguez that there would be
no grounds to extradite him
should any case arise.
"Rodriguez ruled only on
political charges," said a
well-informed source close to
the case. "Vesco could still be
liable to extradition on charges
of the fraud case in New
Jersey."
Vesco is wanted for
allegedly defrauding a New
Jersey company he headed of
$50,000. He is also named in a
civil indictment on an illegal
contribution to President
Nixon's re-election campaign.
"If Vesco came here, the
United States would
immediately ask for his
extradition on criminal
grounds and, according to the
treaty, it looks like they would
be successful," said the
unofficial source.


to Argentina
The visa confusion was
because Vesco's permission was
given by the immigration
department. under the interior
ministry. After reporters
discovered the secret visit had
been made, the foreign
ministry instructed its
consulates not to issue any
documents to allow Vesco to
return.
It was not known which
passports Vesco had available,
so it could not be determined
whether his visa remained
valid.
Rodriguez' October 22 ruling
was finally published this
week, including the court's
reference to his visa, but
officials said it was a routine
matter of record that signified
no new development in the
case.
Vesco won his extradition
fight in Nassau yesterday and
had his Costa Rican passport
returned to him.

LOS ANGELES Bob Hope (pictured)
is staying home this Christmas. For the
first time in 20 years he will not make his
annual Christmas tour to entertain
servicemen overseas.
"They'll have to strap me down about
Dec. 15,"I'll be in a crouch ready to take
off."
Hope began his Christmas tours in
1948. Since 1954 he has gone overseas
every Christmas.
Hope's annual Christmas television
specials, assembled from films of his
overseas shows, became a tradition.
During the height of the Vietnam war the


th


specials were usually the highest-rated
show of the year.
How will he spend this first Christmas
at home in years?
"We're just going to get together," he
said.
"But the war is over," he said. "It gets
to be a thing where you get into a regular
routine of going, going, going. It came to
a climax finally. Everything seemed
anticlimactic after a while. We made nine
trips to southeast Asia.
"After you've done it for so long, even
though it serves a purpose, we thought it
was time to lay off. Maybe stay home and


meet the family for Christmas."
He said he will entertain at the Long
Beach Veterans Hospital Dec. 17, but he
was not certain if he would visit any
hospitals on Christmas Day.
Hope said it would be tough not to
make his annual trip, however.
"I'm certainly. going to miss
everybody," he said. "it's been the most
emotional part of my life. I've been
entertaining servicemen since 1941.
During World War II we never did a radio
show from the studio. Every week we
were someplace around the world." (AP)

Kidnap: it's appalling

says airline official


BUENOS AIRES Police
have reported no leads in the
search for guerillas who
kidnapped Esso oil refinery
manager Victor Samuelson.
Sources close to Fsso
Argentina said no ransom
demands were made during the
kidnapping Thursday.
"If only they'd catch
someone, sometime," said the
head of an American minerals
corporation, reflecting the
alarm among the foreign
community.
"It's appalling." said an
airline official, also an
American.
Samuelson, 36, of Cleveland,
Ohio. was the target of the
People's Revolutionary Army.
He was having lunch at the
I-Isso club in its refinery at
Campana, 160 miles north of
here. Eight well-armed
terrorists disguised with beards
and make-up, with inside help
from several women, held
Samuelson, other executives
and Esso employees on the
floor while they harangued
their captives.

The Harvard-educated
executive was forced outside.
The guerillas escaped, stealing


the Campana mayor's car after
spraying the club's walls with
slogans.
One read: "'The fight against
imperialism will not cease."
Samuelson reportedly had
several full-time bodyguards,
but none was with him when
the kidnapping occurred.

termed 'Police aides',. had not
been disbanded nor disarmed,
he claimed.
Instead. Gairy had
transferred several of them to
the regular police force,
increasing the number to 750.
Gairy armed the police aides
three years ago, openly
admitting to charges that men
with criminal records, had been
recruited, according to Bishop.
Since then, Bishop said their
numbers have grown to an
estimated 1.500.
In the face of mounting
opposition from labour unions,
Gairy agreed to disband the


police aides and establish an
independent judicial inquiry
into the general state of affairs
on the 133-square-mile island.
The protesters backed
demands that leading members
of the secret police be brought
to justice with a three-day
general strike which brought

WASHINGTON Gerald R.
Ford embarked on his term as
vice president with a firm
defense of President Nixon and
a rejection of suggestions
Nixon has become a political
liability for Republicans.
He spent part of yesterday
fulfilling his constitutional
duty of presiding over the
senate, part on his new
responsibilities and part in
seeking to dispel speculation he
might soon have to take over
from the Watergate-weakened
president.
"I don't think there is any
possible prospect of that,"
Ford told reporters during a
photo session outside the
Senate. "I just took this job
today and I don't think I ought
to talk about another."
Several hours later, after a
45-minute White House


meeting with Nixon, he told a
news conference: "The
President has no intention
whatsoever of resigning."
As for the impeachment
proceedings already under way
in the house, Ford said these
would continue. "I see no
evidence whatever," he added,
"that would justify a
favourable vote in the House of
Representatives" on an
impeachment resolution.
He said he expects Nixon to
release full details of his
personal finances and his role
in the International Telephone
& Telegraph Co. and milk fund
cases by the end of December.
"When all of the facts are
out," Ford said. "he did assure
me he will be completely

CARACAS Thousands of

here to find out where to vote
in tomorrow's presidential and
legislative elections.
Election officials in
Venezuela blamed postal
slipups and computer troubles
for widespread voter
registration errors. But they
denied rumours that the
problems might force
postponement of the election.
Reports said as many as half
of the country's voters never
received registration cards, or
were assigned to a distant
polling place, or were unlisted
at their assigned voting booth,
or encountered some other
problem.
But officials said everyone
will be able to vote by showing
their national identification
cards at the polls. Voting is
mandatory for the 4.6 million
Venezuelans between the ages
of 18 and 70, but the rule is
not strictly enforced.
Venezuelans will be

Dayan declined to promise an

He made the comment after
the first of two sessions with

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THERE are things I don't understand.
I'm sure that there have been occasions when every reader of
this column has found it difficult to understand things that have
happened in their lives.
There have been events in history that have puzzled the minds
of the greatest thinkers of the ages.
Even the new science of human psychology cannot probe the
forces that cause mass hysteria....a form of hysteria that
sometimes turns ordinarily rational human beings into savage
beasts.

Who will ever be able to explain the power Adolph Hitler
exercised over the minds of the German people?
The Prussians were a proud, autocratic people. It is said that
when a Prussian officer walked on a sidewalk in Germany
everyone was expected to clear a way for him unless they wanted
to risk a swift kick in the pants.
The German people were among the cleverest in the world.
rhey were supposed to be a Christian people. Certainly they were
a people who were proud of their achievements....and with
justification because they were a great nation.
And yet they became as putty in the hands of an uncouth,
unlettered Austrian house painter who had served as a corporal in
the Austrian army in the first world war.
This megalomaniac not only launched a world war but lie
ordered the cold-blooded murder of six million Jews.... men,
women and children. And this supposedly highly civilized nation
gladly did his bidding....knowing that, had he won the war he
would have exterminated the Jewish race and sent the African
races back into slavery.
No one can explain the behaviour of the German people during
this period of mass hysteria in their history.

In my own experience I don't understand:
How supposedly Christian people remained quiet when the
P'..P1. government hunted Haitians in the bush with dogs. This
was a case of a black government brutalizing their black skin
brothers.
How supposedly Christian people remained quiet while,
under Minister of Education Arthur Hanna, brutal treatment was
handed out to a crippled teacher because he was a friend of a
U.B.P. candidate.
How a supposedly Christian people have remained quiet
when Turks Islanders with Bahamian families were chased out of
the Bahamas because the wives of these men supported the
F.N.M.
Most of all I don't understand how Bahamian ministers of
the gospel in a supposedly Christian society have remained silent
while these un-Christian outrages have been carried out by the
government.
I'm sure readers of this column know that I could list a
hundred and one outrages by this government that I cannot
understand. But I will skip them this time.

What I really don't understand is how the John Chaplin
oat.age could be perpetrated by a supposedly intelligent section
of this community. I won't bring Christianity into a discussion of
this group because I am no longer sure how deep the Christian
influence has sunk into the hearts of our people.
I was puzzled when my daughter, Mrs. Carron, phoned me in
Coral Gables to tell me that the Board of Directors of St
Andrew's School had dismissed John Chaplin. She was satisfied
that this action was completely unjustifiable.
There were so many contradictions in this situation that
wouldn't take her word for it. I wanted to find out for myself
And so I immediately flew to Nassau to investigate the facts fo
myself.
The thing that puzzled me was the fact that John Chaplin and
his wife had snatched this school from complete failure and, in
over 19 years of devoted service, had made it one of the leading
if not the leading college in the islands.
The couple had done a great deal for children of members o
the Board....and some of them were supposed to be their close
personal friends. I found out that at least one member of th
Board had eaten at the Chaplins' table only a few days before th
axe fell!
Because this couple are our neighbours I knew how hard the
had worked for this school. Sunday, holidays, night and day....a
the time....this school was their life.
1 found out that the row started over two teachers who clearly
had a grudge against Mr. Chaplin.
Why did these two women dislike this man when the rest o
the staff were devoted to him and were even prepared to ris
their jobs in defending him?
From all I can gather they disliked Mr. Chaplin because he ha
dealt with them in the discharge of his duties to the school
Evidence pointed to the fact that he had incurred the
displeasure by actions he had taken in what he believed to be th
best interests of the school.

Surely if I an outsider -- could ferret out these facts
members of the Board could have discovered the truth if they
went in search of it. Was this a case of people blindly following
the lead of a person or persons who wanted to gain personal
control of the school?
I believe that psychologists will say that this is the way mass
hysteria is generated....one strong man or woman with a lot of
weak people blindly following his or her lead.
* *
We see this situation in the P.L.P. government today. Recently
Mr. Edmund Moxey (MP for Coconut Grove) revealed that for
nearly seven years P.L.P. backbenches in the House have been a
lot of voiceless puppets jumping to the beck and call of a few
men at the top.
They have not been consulted on anything. All they have done
has been to give the few men at the top the support they needed
to serve their personal ends. In the process they have destroyed
tne economy of the Bahamas.

I was present at one of the open St. Andrews
meetings ... attended by .the Board ... when the situation was
publicly discussed. On that occasion the Board made it clear that
they had made a decision....and they were not 'prepared to
entertain any other view. The matter was closed. They stressed
that their decision was "irrevocable."


It was clear that....whether at that point all the members of the
Board were satisfied that they were justified in the action they
had taken ....they felt that they were hooked and had gone too far
to turn back. Only one member of the Board had the courage to
acknowledge that a grave mistake had been made. He resigned.

By this time the Board must have felt that they had to justify
their position with the shareholders. And so they prepared a
15-page document in which they levelled all kinds of charges
against Mr. Chaplin.
Throughout this whole affair Mr. Chaplin exercised great
restraint. On two occasions when the entire teaching staff with
the exception of two women wanted to take drastic action Mr.
Chaplin urged them not to do any thing that would damage the

would say that the Chaplins have behaved magnificently
throughout this ordeal.
The night the final vote was taken by the shareholders the
parents committee were silenced by the manoeuvring of the
Board. They were not given an opportunity to present the facts
of the case in a public place.
The Board handled this whole affair like a lot of cold-blooded
politicians. The Chaplins were crushed.
They had no choice left to them then but to negotiate a
settlement with the Board.


A procedure had been laid down under which they were
entitled to a certain amount of money in lieu of a pension.
All this was done in cloak-and-dagger fashion and the Board
apparently felt that the matter was permanently settled.
Certainly the Chaplins could take no further action. But the
teaching staff....the entire teaching staff who had worked with
the Chaplins....with the exception of the two disgruntled
women....felt outraged. They examined the document
presented to the shareholders by the Board.
They have now issued their, own statement. In this statement
they have branded each and every charge brought against this man
either as an out and out untruth,a misrepresentation of the facts
or a veiled innuendo that would mislead the shareholders and
others concerned.
They also exposed one more fact. They say the Board did not
pay the Chaplins....I say Chaplins because although Mrs. Chaplin
was never notified by the Board that her services were no longer
required, she too was considered dismissed...l repeat, the Board
did not pay the Chaplins the amount it was felt that they were
entitled to. And, in making the payment to this couple, they
required them to sign a document designed, not only to free the
Board from any further financial responsibility but also to seal
the lips of the Chaplins forever.
It would seem to me that if the Board really believed that they
had been justified in their action against 'this couple they would
not have needed to have them sign such a drastic document.
This was clearly the action of frightened men and women. I
would suggest that people who act justly have no reason for fear.

This is a terrible affair.
In the case of the followers of the P.L.P. you can put their
behaviour down to ignorance.
Certainly no such excuse could be found for the behaviour of
the Board in the Chaplin case.
The argument used by most people in supporting the Board is
that they are ten good citizens of the Bahamas. They can't be
wrong.
This is the fact that disturbed me when my daughter phoned
me to give me the news of the action taken by the Board.
f I knew all these people. I knew them much longer than I have
known the Chaplins. Some of them were close friends of mine. I
couldn't see how they could go wrong. But all the facts that I
have been able to gather in this case show clearly that they have
been wrong in their dealings with these two people.
I now say that a great injustice has been done....and it has been
done by a section of the community from which -ne might hope
to expect more rational behaviour, especially at a time when
many of us thought that the masters in the P.L.P. were
unreasonable, vicious people.
With the members of the St. Andrews Board behaving in such a
shocking manner....who is left in this place that anyone can trust'?
God save us!
f All I can say is that I am mighty glad of the decision I made on
September 19th last year when I left the islands and made myself
a citizen of the world.


This affair has created a situation that now threatens. to
destroy the school.
I am reliably informed that 19 teachers have signed a
document declaring that they will not renew their contracts in
June if the school continues under the present Board.
I am also told that the government has given only short-term
work permits to four of the new teachers. These permits, I am
told, expire in February.
In view of this fact the government may hesitate to issue work
permits for new teachers if the 19 teachers who served under Mr.
Chaplin leave the Bahamas in June.
This would result in closing down the school.
It would seem to me that this situation calls for the early
resignation of the entire Board.
**


FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: There was a time when I regarded
with contempt the Bahamian people who were responsible for
placing their destiny in the hands of the P.L.P. government.
Now I look on these people with pity.
It's a sad sight when you see a free people throw their freedom
to the wolves.
When I come to Nassau now they ask me questions but what
can I say to a people who, through stupidity, have become
enmeshed in a net of their own weaving?
Since I came here this week I am being asked on all sides what
I think of the National Insurance scheme.
All I can say is that the government is desperate to get their
hands on the people's money which they themselves say they
plan to invest in local enterprises to stimulate employment. I can
only hope that some money will be there to meet the obligations
that will arise from time to time.


I am asked what I think of the new house property tax
measure.
It is bad, of course. Shocking. But it is now clear that they are
trying to gouge all they can get out of the resident tourist colony.
All I can say is that this is a good way of causing these people
to leave the island. There is no reason for them to stay here. The
world is still full of pleasant places to live. I have found a few
spots for myself.
1 am asked what I think of the Bill that gives the Minister of
Health full power over the medical profession in the colony. God
Almighty ....of all people in the world ....Loftus Roker!
This is just one more step towards totalitarian government.
I'll tell you in a few words what I think of the whole situation.
I think you folks are in hell ... and the devils of your own
choosing are oniy now beginning to stoke the tire under your tail.
If this will give you any satisfaction....it's a fire that will
consume them too.


'A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the
blind, both shall fall into the ditch:-


Lynden Pindling and the
people are beginning to
understand that he is in fact
the man most responsible, as
Prime Minister, for the
atrocious blunders of the PLP
Government and for the misery
those blunders have brought to
thousands of Bahamians.
In 1970 Prime Minister
Pindling wrote his One Man's


ONCE AGAIN, the question
is, "Why?" Why has the PLP
Government chosen to drive
yet another nail into the coffin
of the country?
Why have they decided to
take an action which is bound
to worsen the already sad state
of the country's
economy?
And, "Who?" That is
another question which is
being asked more so this time
than ever.
The country knows by now
that the majority of the PLP's
Parliamentary Group was not
consulted before the
Government announced their
intention to take
over ownership and operation
of the casinos in Paradise
Island and Freeport. And what
kind of consultation took place
among the Cabinet Ministers?
Perhaps no one will ever know.
But there is one certainty
which emerges in this affair,
and that is that Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling can no longer
hide behind the myth that he
himself is a reasonable and
responsible leader; and that the
woes of the country are due to
the inco mpetent and
irresponsible men around him.
PLP supporters and, indeed,
many others have been taken
in by this myth. They shake
their heads and sadly proclaim
that Mr. Pindling should not be
blamed for all the terrible
things which happen. They say
he is far too intelligent and
responsible to be a party to
such goings-on. They much
prefer to excuse the Prime
Minister and to make a
scapegoat of Deputy Prime
Minister A. D. Hanna.
Mr. Hanna takes the rap
because everybody knows
exactly how he feels about all
foreign investment in this
country, and about the free
enterprise system. lie has made
his objectives clear, and anyone
who has been close to him
knows that he has never
deviated in the pursuit of those
objectives.
SWEET REASON
But Mr. Pindling was never
known to be a doctrinaire
leftist, neither was he thought
to harbour very strong
anti-foreign attitudes. The
foreign press, many local
observers and certainly the vast
majority of PLP supporters saw
in him sweet reason and
moderation.
This myth is hard to die, but
it is dying. Piece by piece the
mask is being stripped from


prepared to lay the blame
exclusively at the feet of A. D.
Hanna. This policy is clearly
and unmistakably the policy of
Lynden Oscar Pindling. It is
Mr. Pindling who as Prime
Minister was primarily
responsible for the Benguet
fiasco, for the abrogation of
the Hawksbill Creek agreement
and for the breaking of the

Bahamian economy.
It isp Nr. Pindling who, more
than any other person, must
nows take the blame for this
latest shattering of whatever
confidence still exists in the
country, All of the Ministers
and all of the representatives
who still support him and his

Government must, of course,
also share in the blame.
WHY? O0, WHY?
Now, the question "Why?"
seems to be a bigger mystery
than the question, "Who?"
Why is it that a
Government of supposedly
intelligent men who love their
country and their people, why
is it that they would set about
time after time, almost
deliberately it seems, to do
those things which are bound
to work against the interest of
the country and the people?
As with most of the
blunders of the PLP, no real
reasons are ever given only
attempts to blame others for
the inevitable results of their
own foolish policies.
Today, there is a state of
despair and unrest in this
country which should cause
the most serious concern on
the part of any thinking
citizen, much less those who
are responsible for the
administration of the country's
affairs. Unemployment is
mounting, the cost of living is
skyrocketing, wages are static
or down, and there are no
solutions in sight.
Just recently it was
announced that negotiations
which would have resulted in
the sale and renovation of the
Fort Montagu Beach Hotel
had fallen apart; and that hotel
will close soon if those
negotiations are not revived
and successfully concluded.
If the state of the economy
was healthy and if the country
still enjoyed a reasonable level
of confidence, the chances are
that that particular transaction
would have been successfully

CONDEMN 'ATROCIOUS' TAX
EDITOR, The Tribune
We would appreciate your publishing this letter in the
newspaper for us.
"We feel that Government members of Parliament are
doing an injustice to the people of this country by only
speaking out on the atrocious increase in cooking gas.
Why is it they do not speak out about the atrocious
increases of real property tax, i.e. from a figure of $300.00
and $250.00 per annum in 1973 to a colossal figure of
$860.00 and $554.00 per annum in 1974.
Is there no atrocity in these figures?
Who then should the natural gas dealers look to, to
absorb their increase in real property tax?

have been called in to begin the

SYMPTOMATIC
This particular case is
symptomatic of general
conditions. But it is at this very
time that the Government
chooses to make an
announcement which is bound
to have even more disastrous
consequences; and once again,
no real reasons are given.
It would be ridiculous for
the Government to claim that
they can operate the casinos
better than the present owners.
It would be equally ridiculous

for the Government to claim
that their nationalisation
policy would bring greater
benefits to the people.
The truth is that the
Government cannot'
successfully operate the
casinos, and if they should
attempt to do so, the sure
result will be either total
collapse of the operation or a
.substantial reduction in
profitability.
That will mean that the
Treasury, which now benefits
considerably from casino taxes,
will benefit less; and perhaps
even worse, a major incentive
for further hotel construction
will be wiped away, is already
wiped away, in fact, by the
mere announcement of the
Government's intention.
Just a few years ago, diehard
supporters of the PLP were
laughing because the
Opposition seemed to be so
terribly concerned about the
Fishing Village statement made
by one of Mr. Pindling's
Ministers. It was all a big joke,
they thought, and critics of the
Government were really
working themselves into a
frenzy over nothing, so the
thinking went.
Today, however, many of
those diehards are beginning to
laugh on the other side of their
faces. What they are beginning
to see is worse than a tranquil
little fishing village.
They are beginning to see a
once progressive and growing
country struck down into the
dust and wallowing in
unemployment, deprivation,
scandals, lies and threats of
unrest.
Yes, indeed, the country is
going straight to hell! And
those who used to take solace
in the smooth words of
reassurance from Prime
Minister Pindling are beginning
to realize that Mr. Pindling has
no miracle to offer. They can
expect only more blunders and
more rapid destruction at the
hands of a Government and of
a Prime Minister who, it must
now be clear to all, are nothing
more than abject and miserable
failures.

Arawak Cay

'premature'
WORKING plans for the
development of Arawak Cay
have not yet been completed,
Development Minister Carlton
Francis admitted in the House
Wednesday.
Answering questions put by
Mr. Noel Roberts (FNM-St.
Johns), Mr. Francis said
however that preliminary work
on the project had begun.
But, "arrangement of full
financing is, at this stage,
premature," he added.


Heart ball to beat again


THE ANNUAL Heart Ball to
raise funds for The Sir Victor
Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart
Foundation will be celebrating
its Tenth Anniversary on
February 16, a distinguished
milestone for fund raising
events in Nassau.
Trying to top previous
successful Heart Balls will
certainly challenge the
imagination and efforts of the
Women's Committee for the
Heart Ball.
Their prediction of it being
the biggest and most successful
one yet will be strengthened by
the announcement that their
'maestro with heart', Meyer
Davis, will again bring his
famous orchestra to Nassau to
play for the Heart Ball.
At a recent meeting in New
York, Meyer Davis assured
Lady Sassoon, chairman of the
Heart Foundation, that the
Heart Ball in Nassau was the
number one charity event on
his busy schedule as long as the
Women's Committee needed
his services.
Mr. Davis played for the
Inaugural Heart Ball in 1965
and he, too, will be celebrating
his tenth anniversary
appearance a the Heart Ball on
February 16.
Hosting the New York
meeting ,i. reston Robert
lisch, president of Loews
Hotels who pointed out that
the Crown Ballroom of the
Loews Paradise Island Hotel
and Villas is also setting a
record for charity events with
the Heart Ball holding their
event for the seventh
consecutive year.
At a meeting of the
Women's Committee this week


the extensive plans for the gala
social event got under way.
As this is the first Heart Ball
to be held in an Independent
Bahamas the Committee
decided to use the blue and
gold of the Bahamian flag as
their basic colour scheme.
Table Prizes, Room Raffle
Prizes, Favours and other details
were allocated to various
Committees for finalization.
Attending the meeting were
Committee members: Lady
Sassoon, Chairman, Mrs. Lloyd
Champion, Vice-Chairman,
Mrs. Cleophas Adderley, Mrs.
R. Ernest Barnes, Mrs. Gerald
Cash, Mrs. Jessie Boynton, Mrs.
David Clarke.
Mrs. Edwin Deal, Mrs.
William Diffenderffer, Mrs.
Philip Farrington, Mrs. John
Gallaway, Mrs. Maxim Gurney,
Miss Mary A. Kelly. Mrs. Clyde
Minard, Mrs. Kate Seiler, Mrs.
Ralph Seligman, Mrs. John
Smith, Mrs. Frederic
Soldwedel, Mrs. Charles
V aughan-Johnson, Mrs.
Andrew Trichak, Mrs. John
Boone, Mrs. George Smith and
Mrs. Martin Cheshes.
The annual Heart Ball is the
major fund raising event for
The Sir Victor Sassoon
(Bahamas) Heart Foundation
and brings an International
gathering of guests for the
event as well as a large turnout
of local residents.
Last year's guest included
Phyllis Diller and her husband
and Robert Mitchum and his
wife as guests of Lady Sassoon.
The Women's Committee
also announced that in
addition to the Meyer Davis
orchestra a prominent local


Bahamian group of entertainers
would be invited to participate
in the evening's entertainment.
Spotlighting a Bahamian
group will be one of many
surprises planned for the Heart
Ball.
Even the spectacular
decoration plans are being kept
as a surprise for patrons of the
Ball.
Surprises even extend to the
designs of the spectacular
gowns worn by the ladies who
use the occasion as a very
fashionable fashion show.
With the Heart Ball set for
February 16, 1974, other fund
raising events are already being
planned, as well.
A major raffle will be held
in February, and the annual
'Drumbeat For Heart' will be
held at the Drumbeat Club in
early April.
The Foundation is presently
affiliated with St. Francis
Hospital in Miami Beach and
the University of Miami in
Miami. This affiliation permits
donations by U.S. residents to
be tax deductible.

WTe Xrtbune


By Abigail Van Buren
S197I Mr CMca Tilbeae-N. Y. News SPA., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I read an article which stated: "Ninety
seven per cent of all married men cheat on their wives-
and only six per cent of all married women cheat on their
husbands."
I told my husband this, and he said he thought those
statistics were way off, that it should have been higher for
women, and lower for men.
What do you think? WONDERING
DEAR WONDERING: There is probably no other sub-
ject about which so many people lie; so where sex Is
concerned, I wouldn't accept any figure as gospel.
DEAR ABBY: I am 25, and Ken is 40. We've been
happily married for six years and have a daughter 5, and
I'm expecting again.
My problem: Ken has three sons, 14, 12, and 9, who
have been living with his ex-wife, and these boys are hard
to handle. I know because we've had them for vacations.
His ex-wife has had three husbands in the last five
years, and now she's living with a minor! Ken says it
would be easy for us to get custody of his kids now, but
Abby, I don't want theqp. They like me, and I make them
mind, but it's so difficult! The older one has run away
twice, and the 12-year-old is on probation for shoplifting.
I don't know what I'll do if I have to raise these boys,
Abby. I love my husband and don't want to lose him, but I
don't think I can handle those wild kids. CRACKING UP
DEAR CRACKING: The boys desperately need love
and acceptance. Don't reject them. Your Family Service
Child Guidance department can counsel you-and them,
too. If they make their home with you, give these problem
boys a chance to straighten out. Love creates miracles.
DEAR ABBY: Can a widow celebrate her 50th wedding
anniversary if her husband has been dead for 24 years?
My mother wants to place flowers on the church altar
and buy a page in the church bulletin to celebrate her 50th
wedding anniversary, or in some way to memorialize the
date she and my father would be celebrating if he were
alive.
Abby, I don't want people to laugh at her, but I have
never heard of anything like this. Please help me to guide
her. I agree, the day should be remembered in some way,
but how should she word the announcement without appear-
ing cuckoo? HER SON


DEAR SON: Your mother could place flowers on the
altar in memory of her beloved husband on the day that
would have been their 50th wedding anniversary. And she
could place such an announcement "in loving memory of
my dear departed husband" in the church bulletin.
DEAR ABBY: I have heard that if a man introduces a
woman in public as his wife, they are legally married.
If this is true, why is it necessary to obtain a marriage
license? NEEDS TO KNOW
DEAR NEEDS: There is a small germ of truth [and
then only under special circumstances] in the above statement.
Talk to a lawyer in your state about marriage-common-law
and otherwise.
DEAR ABBY: I am 21 and have an 8-month-old girl. My
husband's mother lives 90 miles from here and my husband
is the only son she has left. [She lost a 19-year-old son in
Viet Nam three years ago.] She has one daughter, 17, who
is dying of leukemia. Abby, this woman is so brave and
wonderful. With all her trouble she never complains.
Well, my husband and I decided to drive up to be with
his mother on Mother's Day, but first we stopped off at my
mother's so I could give her a Mother's Day present. We
found her sulking like a child, and you should have heard
her carry on. She said she was hurt that I chose to spend
Mother's Day with my mother in law instead of with my
own mother. Abby, my mother has three other children [all
healthy and living nearby] and she had been invited to
spend Mother's Day with them, but she stayed home in-
stead, and told them all that I gave her a migraine
headache! Now she's barely speaking to me. She says she
could have forgiven me if it had been any day besides
Mother's Day. Was I wrong?
HEARTSICK
DEAR HEARTSICK: No! Under the circumstances I
think you did the right thing, and unless your mother isn't
playing with a full deck, she knows it.
DEAR ABBY: I am 20 years old and have a 5-month-
old baby, which makes me a mother, right? Well, as a
mother I think I should be honored on Mother's Day, don't
you? My mother doesn't seem to think so. She wants all her
children to honor her, regardless.
Since this is my first Mother's Day as a mother, my
husband planned to take me out for dinner. He bought me
an orchid and everything. My neighbor said she'd watch my
baby if I brought him over. Then my mother called and
blubbered into the phone, "You mean you aren't spending
Mother's Day with ME?"
When I told her of our plans, she said, "You have the
rest of your life to spend Mother's Day with your husband.
Who knows how many years you'll have me?" [Mother is
58 and in good health.] So I went to my mother's and had a

DEAR ABBY: My mother in law is a widow, but she is
only 50 and she still likes a good time Well, she told me
that on Mother's Day she would keep my 5-month-old baby
so my husband and I could go to my mother's who was
making a big dinner, and having a houseful, and if I took
my baby with me I wouldn't be able to help her.
Well, I later found out that at the last minute some man
called my mother in law to go dancing, so she put my baby
in a basket and took him to the dance! Imagine, Abby, a 5-
month-old baby in a dirty, smoky hall with all that noise
and a bunch of strange people breathing all kinds of germs
into the air.
You don't have to answer this. I just wanted to get it off
my chest.

WHAT"S O


EDITOR, The Tribune.
Taxi driver around North
Eleuthera airport are reporting
a dramatic pick-up in business
since Bahamasair introduced its
Night Coach Special to
Governor's Harbour, bypassing-
the first airport, which remains
unlighted after six years of
getting-better-every-day.
It cannot be said that
potential passengers for the last
afternoon flight share this same
enthusiasm: especially those
who have been awaiting the
2.30 p.m. flight, which got lost
and never turned up. When
these people find they have to
face a forty-five mile drive to
Governor's Harbour, after the
long wait, and in the darkness,
they generally have a prayer
meeting, Bahamasair and its
management being the subject
of the petitions.
However, the new
experiment must be working
out fine for its originators.
considering the frequency to
which it is now resorted. This
writer does not presume to
question the wisdom behind
the planning in "the greatest
airline in the world", still,
there remains one or two
unsettled questions which
many victims of Bahamasair's
mysteries would be delighted
to have made clear. They are:
(a) Why cannot
management(?) in Nassau have
the good manners and common

sense to advise passengers at
airports over the Bahamas of
the situation existing at Nassau
airport? If no aircraft is
available or not leaving tell
the airport agents what is going
on. Let the people know what
to expect.
(b) Why must passengers
wait until darkness has
descended to make the run for
Governor's Harbour? There's
going to be a serious accident
caused by the necessary
rushing to meet the aircraft at
Governor's Harbour. Let
people know well ahead that
they may, at least, make the
drive in relative safety.
(c) When is Bahamasair
going to introduce the courtesy
and helpful attitudes implied in
its advertisements?
(d) Who is paying for these
joy rides between airports?
Somebody (I can't
remember his name) said at the
PLP convention that the record
of Bahamasair. had been
appalling. He also thought, I
believe, that improvements
were afoot. To that gentleman
I'd like to say, that it's a real
good thing Bahamasair is an
airline. If it were a sewer line,
with this strong east wind
we're having, you'd smell it on
the West Coast.
I quake to think what it's
going to be like around the
Christmas holidays, when the
visitors begin arriving.
