We love to let you know
How proud we are that you
were ours
Because we love you so.

CARROLL RIGHTER'S
HOROSCOPE
from the Carroll Riohtar Institute
GENERAL TENDENCIES: A good day for
*N\l handling whatever his to do with your home or
family matters that are of concern to you. You see romantic
activities in a more accurate light now and can do what pleases
your most intimate tie. Be happy.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Being certain that all utilities
are in fine working order is wise now. Do some light
entertaining at home and enjoy good friends.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) Get those errands done and
make sure there are enough groceries in the house. Handle
correspondence that brings you important data.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) Try to study your financial
situation more accurately so that you know how to invest
wisely. Gain the assistance of a business expert.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) Take health
treatments you need and get yourself in trim for bigger things
ahead. Evening is fine for the social.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) Coming to a far better
understanding with your closest tie is possible now. Talk over
with an expert how to become more successful
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) Ideal day to make headway
via the good auspices of friends who are interested in your
welfare. Be a more precise person.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Bringing your special
capabilities to the attention of higher-ups is one way of getting
ahead now. Improve your credit rating.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You are thinking on a lofty
plane and can solve problems wisely and make big strides in
your career. Avoid one who likes to argue.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Don't procrastinate
any longer in taking care of responsibilities. Be romantic
tonight and show that you have a sense of humor.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Try to please co-workers
more and keep promises you have made. Don't be so
indifferent with mate and show more devotion.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Delve into all that work
awaiting your attention. You can settle a situation with a
fellow worker that has long been stewing,
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) If you make plans early you
can have a delightful time at recreations you enjoy. Mate
understands and agrees with your views.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY ... he or she will be
born with a most pronounced love nature and needs to be
given the right courses in psychology so that this life can be
both happy and successful, otherwise the opposite could
occur. Much success is possible in business, in the educational
field, in law, and in medicine.
"The Stars impel, they do not compel." What you make of
your life is largely up to YOU!

robbery of the Cable Beach
Chase Manhattan Bank on
July 2 were both given long
prison sentences combined
with ten strokes of the rod
each when the October
Criminal Sessions closed
today.
And a Freeport
steel-worker found guilty of
manslaughter on a murder
charge was sentenced to three
years in jail.
Mr. Justice Maxwell
Thompson, sentencing Humes
and Thompson, ordered that
five strokes be administered
upon the beginning of their
imprisonment and five upon
its termination.
He sentenced Humes to ten
years on the armed robbery
charge and Thompson to
9/2-years. They were also
sentenced to four years each

harm, a shotgun, against a
police officer who was shot in
the leg during their capture
on July 4.
Justice Thompson
sentenced Oswald Williams,
24, to three years in prison.
Williams, accused of driving a
high-powered diesel truck

CLIFFORD DARLING
Tough broadcast




Inn


stays open,


says


manager


BUT MINISTER RAPS CLOSURE

THREAT IN RADIO BROADCAST


HOLIDAY INN general
manager Ray Martz today
denied the 614-room hotel
at Freeport, Grand
Bahama would close its
doors and 400 employees
would be out of a job.
"We're open and going to
stay open in respect to
Government. We never said we
would close. We're accepting
guests and hope to resolve all
our differences," Mr. Martz
I told The Tribu)e.
And he seemed put out by
The Tribune's questions which
were sparked by Labour
Minister Clifford Darling's
tough, hard-hitting broadcast
last night which condemned
the management and owners of
Holiday Inn.
Said the Minister over Radio
Bahamas: "Although no trade
dispute has been filed by either
side the owners of the hotel
have threatened to close the
hotel unless the wage offer
they made to the union on
Sunday, December 9 is
accepted completely and
totally on Monday, December
10."
"ILLEGAL"
Pointing out the
provisions of the Industrial
Relations Act, 1970 Mr.
Darling went on: "I can say
that the owners of this hotel
have not acted in accordance
with the requirements of the
law ... and if therefore, the
Holiday Inn Hotel in Freeport
is to close its doors without
going through the procedures
prescribed by law, then the
owners will clearly be declaring
an illegal lockout."
He also charged that they
would not just have violated
the provisions of the Industrial
Relations Act "but will also
have violated all sense of fair
play, of justice and of reason in
dealing with the workers of
their establishment."
Mr. Martz said that "normal
negotiations" were going on
with the Grand Bahama branch
of the Bahamas Hotel and
Catering Workers Union, but
he refused to make further
comment about any dispute.
"We've had no slowdowns,
no work stoppages, no
walkouts and no strikes. Our
hotel is presently 65 percent
occupied. We're open and
anticipate a very, very heavy
demand for Christmas," he
said. And he reiterated that the
management had never given
any final notice of closing the
hotel.
This latter statement was to
some extent supported by
union chairman Hurie Bodie
today when he said that Mr.
Martz had contacted him
"around 4:45 p.m. yesterday"
and told him "the hotel would

remain open."
WHY NECESSARY?
If that was the case, it is still
unclear as to why it was
necessary for the Minister to
make his tough broadcast
statement at 7:30 p.m.
charging the owners of the
hotel with "an illegal course of
action."
Mr. Bodie also confirmed
that the Labour Ministry in
Freeport must have known of
the hotel's decision. .
But Mr. Bodie said there was
no mistake about the
management's threat to close
the hotel.
"I was called on Friday
night at home and told that if I
didn't agree the hotel's
proposals 'as it is and not one
word changed' then they'd
close the hotel," said Mr.
Bodie.
"1 said if that was their
approach then they'd have to
close."
A meeting was held on
Saturday between all parties


including the Labour Minister,
said Mr. Bodie, and at 2 p.m.
Sunday 'final proposals" were
given to him by the hotel's
general manager in front of the
Minister at Holiday Inn.
Mr. Bodie said he had talked
with the management
yesterday and expected to hear
from Mr. Martz "sometime
today" about continuing
negotiations "later this week."
Mr. Bodie still felt that some
agreement could be worked
out suitable to both sides and
he thanked the Minister for
putting the matter to the
public. "To put 400 out of
work at this time would have
been a disaster," he said.
The union leader also
praised his workers "for
keeping the faith."
Last night on the radio the
Minister said the country faced
"a serious problem" when an
employer was not willing to
work within the framework of
our industrial relations
regulations and procedures.
And he went on: "To be
specific we now face a critical
situation in negotiations

Sir John gets new post


SIR JOHN Paul (pictured), last British Governor of the
Bahamas, has got himself another governorship. He has been
appointed the new Lieutenant Governor of the Isle of Man and
will take up his post in January, according to the British Home
Office.
Sir John, who served in the Bahamas for 18 months, handed
over as Governor General to Sir Milo Butler on the granting of
Independence in July. Sir Milo took up his appointment on
August 1. Sir John, 57, succeeds Sir Peter Stallard.
Sir Hugh Norman-Walker was appointed Governor of the Isle
of Man some time ago but withdrew last month after a "storm of
controversy" caused by his wife's refusal to live on the island.
Manx legislators condemned her refusal and asked for the
withdrawal of Sir Hugh's appointment.


Commuters face fares hike


PUBLIC transport
commuters might be faced
with an increase in jitney fares
prompted by the new gas
prices combined with recently
introduced bus licensing fees
and expected wage demands by
drivers.
At least one bus operator
has expressed intention to
apply to the Licensing Authority
for permission to hike fares. It
is understood that others are
considering doing the same.
One operator, Leon
Rahming, of Economy Jitney
Services. said today that his
line has not increased its fares
but "if we see where we cannot
make it, we would probably
have to consider" a hike in
transportation fees.
He said his line is already
charging below the prices of
other jitney buses but he also
saw a problem for operators
apart from the gas increase.
"We are dependent upon the
working class and in some cases
where people are hotel
workers, the hotels operate
their own buses," he said.
Mr. Rahming also said that
the present jitney fee with his
operation is 35-cents "straight
through."


From Kemp Road to Cable
Beach. however, passengers are
asked to pay an additional ten
cents he said, but if they are
riding from any point to town,
they pay the set rate.
Swan Jitney operator Mr.
Thomas Saunders disclosed
that his business intends to
submit application to the
Licensing Authority tomorrow
for a hike from the present
40-cents to 50-cents.
He added that his service
also uses a ticket system. For
one dollar, a passenger now
gets three tickets. If the
increase is allowed, there
would be two tickets for one
dollar.
He said the hike was the first
for a long time. From 1963
"there was never an increase.
The price then was 2/6 and
during the change to
decimalisation we worked it
out to 334t-cents for tickets, if
bought in threes, or 40-cents
per ride without the tickets."
He also stated that his bus
line has one of the longest
routes from the city to the
eastern end of New Providence.
Mr. Saunders described the
cause of the hike as being
brought on "by gas increases


and the licensing fee for buses.
Usually, a bus costs $90 but
today it works out to S126."
This was the result of increases
in bus licensing fees which
were raised last year, he said.
raised last year, he said.

And, he said, drivers'
demands for higher wages were
also taken into consideration
for the new fare increase.
Several other jitney bus
operators said to be
considering a hike in fares were
not available for comment.

RACING SECRETARY
VETERAN horse trainer Mr.
David Strachan was today
confirmed as racing secretary
and handicapper for the 1974
race season, at Hobby Horse
Race Track.
Mr. Garth Kemp, general
manager of Hobby Horse Race
Track said that Mr.
Strachan brings to this post a
wide range of experience.
Mr. Strachan, 43, has been
associated with horseracing
since 1947. He is married and
is the father of six children.


Bahamas has symptoms of



the great Jamaican sickness


A RECENT ARTICLE on
Jamaica appearing in the
November 26 issue of U.S.
News & World Report
describes conditions in the
country which appear
remarkably similar to those
now developing in the
Bahamas.
Unemployment, a rising
crime rate and spiralling
inflation are some of the
problems afflicting the former
British colony 11 years after
independence.
Says U.S. News:
Unemployment and crime have
risen to the point where the
roots of what was once a stable
society are fast eroding.
Inflation is rampant, while
wages remain stagnant.
Emigration is escalating
prompted by fears of economic
or physical disaster.
The American publication
said Jamaica appeared to many
observers to be a classic
example of a new nation
unable to handle its problems,
even with outside assistance.
U.S. aid since independence
has averaged 13 million dollars
year. It has now risen to a level
of 20.million.
Jamaicans in increasing
numbers are being permitted to
emigrate to the U.S. as an
escape valve. This year about
13,000 are expected to enter as
immigrants. Another 10,000
will leave Jamaica tor the U.S.
under work contracts.
FALLING APART
A leading Jamaican labour
leader, among others, asserts:
"The entire country seems to
he falling apart."
Latest official figures show
that 23 percent of the work
force was unemployed.
Government sources
estimated that when the
number of underemployed is
added the total rises to 35
percent.

An ugly reputation

THE BAHAMAS is earning an increasingly ugly
reputation abroad because of the number of crimes being
perpetrated against visitors.
The November 21 issue of The Montreal Gaz ette carried
a headline story: "Ugly incidents beset white tourists in the
Bahamas" over the byline of Bruce Taylor.
Mr. Taylor writes that: "Ugly incidents continue to beset
white tourists in the Bahamas, particularly in the area of
Freeport.
"An Ottawa man just back from there reports he and his
wife and child were on the beach at Williamsport when four
black men in masks drove up. Two got out of their car
carrying guns, walked among the people on the beach
intimidating them, finally approached the Ottawa man,
demanded the keys to his car (he'd borrowed it from a
relative living in Freeport who, by the way is preparing to
leave) and drove off with it.
"He tried to get the local newspaper to publish the
incident. It said it couldn't."
Mr. Taylor said Florida hotel operators had told him
they were expecting their biggest winter season ever
because of the increasingly anti-white sentiment throughout
the Bahamas and the Caribbean.


over $500 a year. but in the
countryside it drops to about
$100.
Local and foreign
economists estimate that 95
percent of all property on the
island is owned by whites and
other people with light skins,
even though the nation's
dominant skin colour is black.
The article claims that
Kingston. where many flock in
search of jobs, is filled with
slums, overcrowded streets and
groups of young people who,
because of lack of jobs, spend
their days in idleness and their
nights in crime.
(ANG CRIME
The kind of crime now
taking place in Jamaica is said
to be particularly alarming
because it is gang crime, nor
the actions of individuals.
Robbery is usually
accompanied by beatings. The
homicide rate is high.
Black Jamaicans complain
that the crime wave is directed
at them as well as whites.


Evening entertainment has
dropped off. Foreign residents
are moving from private
homes, which may be
semi-isolated, into apartment
buildings which offer greater
security.
Robbery and violence are
not limited to Kingston.
Incidents are reported
throughout the island. Hotels
have been held up by armed
men in the Montego Bay area.
Jamaica's major tourist resort.
An American businessman
who until recently was one of
Jamaica's biggest boosters, is

home has been robbed and his
wife raped.

island's "indigenous Chinese
and other minority-group

-ARGENTINE ORDERS NEW-


BUENOS AIRES The
Argentine Government has
ordered an investigation why
permission to live in this
country was granted last
September to American
Financier Robert L. Vesco,
government sources disclosed
today.

The newspaper La Opinion
reported that Interior Minister
Benito Llambi ordered a
"thorough investigation," to be
conducted by Esteban Rey,
one of his legal advisers.

N\ Ministry source confirmed
that the investigation will be
made but said: "We are not in
a position to confirm it
officially."

Vesco is wanted by the
United States on an indictment
charging fraud against one of
his companies and also in
connection with cash
contribution to President
Nixon's re-election campaign.
Vesco last week won a
fight against extradition from
the Bahamas. The decision is
still being reviewed by U.S.


And he wants
NEW YORK (AP) -
Financier Robert Vesco's
effort to retrieve his
elaborately equipped 707
flying "palace" was taken
under advisement Monday
by the U.S. Circuit Court
of Appeals.
"I was intrigued by that
sauna bath and master
bedroom and dance
floor," Chief Judge Irving
Kaufman told lawyers in
the case.
Vesco is said to have
spent $600,000 in
corporate funds to refit his
SO-seat jet with a dance
floor, p) chedelic
lighting, sauna bath, wine
rack and movie facilities,
making it in the words
of the Securities and
Exchange Commission -
"a personally designed
flying pleaare palace."

officials for the possibility of
further action or appeal.
The Argentine Bureau of
Migrations last September
granted Vesco the status of a
"permanent resident" in
Argentina, an action which
only recently became publicly
known. It would enable him to
enter and leave this country at
will and to obtain Argentine
identity papers.

A local federal judge, Luis
Maria Rodriguez, ruled
favourable on a Vesco request
for a court statement that
there were no legal grounds for
his extradition to the United
States, under the terms of the
present Argentine-U.S. tready
of extradition.
Vesco, through an Argentine
lawyer, claimed that he was
wanted by U.S. countries for
"political reasons" and
enclosed a full record of the
Watergate case to back his
request. The judge ruled in
favour of Vesco's applications


his jet back
Charles Stewart Jr. last
July 3 enjoined Vesco
from disposing of the 707
or removing his yacht
Patricia III, which is being
held in Miami. He also was
forbidden to dispose of
846,380 shares of
In ter national Controls
Corp., which he once
headed.
Surveying the covey of
lawyers who converged on
his courtroom to argue
various facets of the
appeal from Stewart's
decision, Kaufman
observed with a chuckle:
"I must say, Mr. Vesco
created a boon for the
legal profession, didn't
he?"
"Yes, he did, your
honour," agreed C.
Leonard Gordon, one of
three ICC lawyers.


despite the fact that at the
time there was no formal
extradition request by the U.S.
government.
But Vesco's efforts were
then marred by the Foreign
Ministry, which instructed all
Argentine consulates not to
grant Vesco a visa to enter the
country.

Government sources said
that President Juan Peron was
annoyed by the transfer of the
"Vesco affair" to Argentine
and ordered an investigation.

Judge RodrigueZ, who
retired last month, turned
down a second request by
Vesco for guarantees that he
would not he arrested here,
should the U.S. government
seek detention.

The judge said that since
there was no request for arrest
at that moment, there was no
ground for such a resolution.

Russell of Hope Town, Abaco,

after a long illness.

Since Jamaica imports much
of what is eats and uses, rising
prices abroad encourage

difficulties of an already

A government economist
predicts an average price
increase of 16 percent for this

GROWING DESPERATION
With wages in many
factories in Kingston under
$30 a week, even employed
workers are having difficulties
feeding their families. An
increase in pilferage and petty
theft is considered a sign of the
growing desperation.
While agitation appears to be
increasing among the workers,
the farmers are conservative.

They form the backbone of
support for Prime Minister
Michael Manley.
"If the farmers ever lose

one foreign diplomat, "mass
banditry could become the
way of life of Jamaica."

again

BOGOTA Capt. Mark
Phillips made a jubilant
reappearance with Princess
Anne after a more than
36-hour retreat caused by a
viral infection.
The royal couple attended a
garden party given at the
British Embassy residence by
the local Commonwealth
Society.
Capt. Phillips made no
comments on his illness,
described by Colombian
doctors as an inflammation in
the stomach and intestines
apparently caused by a virus
contracted while visiting Quito,
Eucador.
Princess Anne wore an
embroidered cream-coloured
dress with matching wide hat.
For the first time in Bogota,
Capt. Phillips wore a formal
striped grey suit instead of the
dress military uniform he wore
upon arriving on Saturday.
"They make a great couple,"
said an elderly British lady at
the party. About 350
Commonwealth residents
greeted the Princess and her
husband in the Embassy's
ample gardens.
Princess Anne looked
radiant. With Captain Phillips
in good health again, the royal
couple set out for their
remaining engagements.
Capt. Phillip's reappearance
came as a surprise, as was his
retreat to his bed only two
hours after arriving in Bogota.
E earlier Monday, British
Embassy officials had
announced he was still feeling
ill and had cancelled his
engagements for the date.
Today, Princess Anne and
Captain Phillips were in the
four-century-old Caribbean
City of Cartagena where traces
of former combative British
visitors are visible everywhere.
They were to arrive from
Bogota at the end of their
four-day official visit to
Colombia. They will proceed
to Kin gston. Jamaica,
tomorrow. (AP).

One of Britain's top industrialists,
Sir Frederick Catherwood, former

continuance of the coal dispute would
throw more than a million workers out
of work "in a couple of months."
He said in a radio interview that the

He appealed to the government to

A MASSIVE security alert was launched
today after a reported threat to kill U.S.
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
London's Heathrow airport was under
tight guard when Kissinger flew in today.
He is to give a major speech on U.S.

The unusually tight security protection in
Europe came after a warning that an
unnamed group was plotting to assassinate
Kissinger.
United States officials were quoted as
saying the warning came from either a
foreign intelligence or police agency.
A State Department spokesman contacted

The foreign ministers of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization today end the
semiannual meeting marked by another
sharp encounter between France and the
United States.
The ministers were to sign the usual
conference communique. It is expected to
close ranks on paper but to leave unresolved
differences among the allies in the wake of
Soviet-American detente and the October
Middle East war.

French Foreign Minister Michel Jobert
charged at yesterday's meeting that the
agreement last June between President Nixon
and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev to lessen
the risk of nuclear war subordinated Nato's
role and cast doubt on America's
commitment to defend Western Europe.
Kissinger told the other ministers he could
not "stand idly by" and let certain allies
persist with such misinterpretations.

He said the Nixon-Brezhnev agreement to
consult in times of crisis to avert nuclear war
did not negate U.S. nuclear protection of
Europe, but in fact enhanced it.

Conference sources said Kissinger also
told Jobert that if misinterpretations
continue, he would be forced to conclude
that they are not inadvertent.

This was a diplomatic way of saying that
it looked as if Jobert might be deliberately
trying to make trouble in the alliance.

WHY MAN

WAS

SUCKED

FROM

PLANE
MIAMI The pilot of a
DC10 jetliner says "this
tremendous explosion" was his
first indication of an accident
that resulted in a passenger
being sucked out of the craft at
40,000 feet.
"It was obvious we needed
to descend as quickly as
possible," Captain William R.
Broocke, 54, of Miami testified
at a hearing of the National
Transportation Safety Board.
It was a full-time job to keep
the airliner under control
because of the tremendous
buffeting, he added.
The mishap occurred Nov. 3
as a National Airlines flight
from Miami to San Francisco
was flying over desert country
in New Mexico.
Peices of the disintegrating
right engine punctured a
window of the aircraft, causing
abrupt depressurization of the
cabin. The rush of air escaping
through the broken window
pulled G. F. Gardner, of
Beaumont, Tex., out. His body
has not been found.
Broocke told the board that
flying pieces of metal from the
right wing engine also
punctured the left wing engine
generator, causing partial loss
of power in that engine.
"I was down to one good
engine and one that was
deteriorating fairly rapidly,"
Broocke said.
He added that he made an
emergency landing in
Albuquerque with only the tail
engine working at full
capability. Broocke testified
that, immediately before the
engine explosion, he had been
varying engine speeds to test
what activated the plane's
automatic throttle.
Broocke said it was "merely
curiosity" that had prompted
him to make the experiment.
None of the other 127
people aboard the craft was
killed, hut 20 were treated for
minor injuries and smoke
inhalation. The disintegration
of the engine was blamed on an
apparent failure of the cowl
ring encircling it. (AP).

hopeless stupidity


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
CASINO gambling is again a major issue in Bahamian politics.
It was the introduction of gambling to the Bahamas that
destroyed the U.B.P. government and brought the hopelessly
inefficient, irresponsible and greedy P.L.P. to power.
After nearly eight years of major casino operations in this
island this issue now threatens to speed up the demise of the
P.L.P. government.
This is also happening at a time when the social and economic
structure of our society has been so seriously undermined that it
cannot survive any further disruptive shocks.
********
The whole argument started when Minister of Finance Arthur
Hanna announced the government's intention to take over the
casinos at Freeport and Paradise Island in 1976.
Immediately a cry of nationalization was raised, especially in
the case of Paradise Island because its contract with the
government doesn't run out until 1978.
Mr. Hanna speedily corrected what he said was a mistake. And
then gave the correct date for the expiry of the Paradise Island
agreement.

You may or may not believe that this was a mistake.
Personally, I don't believe it was a mistake.
Even the ordinary man in the street must be aware of the fact
that the Paradise Island casino was not established until two years
after the casino was opened at Freeport. And so the expiry dates
could not possibly be the same.
My opinion is that, having pulled off the Hawksbill Creek
SAgreement, outrage, Mr. Hanna believed the government could
repeat this exercise with the casinos.
But the reaction to his announcement was so prompt and
vociferous that I feel that he knew he had to retreat ... and so he
tried to cover up by telling the public that he had made a
mistake.
I repeat ... I don't think it was a mistake. I believe it was a
deliberate decision that backfired on him.
But if it were a mistake it is just another example of how
hopelessly incompetent and irresponsible are the men who
control the destiny of the Bahamian people.
Can you wonder that, after nearly seven years of P.L.P.
government, the Bahamian people now face a blank wall that
offers no hope ... only disaster for the future?
*********

The reaction, both at home and abroad, to Mr. Hanna's
announcement is interesting.
First in the trenches was the Rev. H. W. Brown of the
Bahamas Christian Council. He reminded the government of a
resolution passed by the Council in 1965 placing on record their
condemnation of gambling in any form.
Once again Dr. Brown raised his voice against gambling in the
islands.
The Tribune. contacted other members of the Council but it
has been demonstrated on other major issues that Dr. Brown is
the only Bahamian member of this body who is fixed in his
convictions and forthright in declaring them from the housetops.
I am sorry to have to say this but I now feel that whatever
decisions that body of holy rollers may take is determined
entirely by expediency.
Sorry fellows that I feel this way about you but it is not
enough to wear your collars in reverse to earn the respect and
confidence of a people. Today, when the Bahamian people have
reached the crossroads in life, they need the help of men of
strong convictions who are not afraid to stand up and be counted
in the halls of Christian manhood.

The other important reaction came from a P.L.P. backbencher
in the House.
Mr. Edmund Moxey, M.P. for the Coconut Grove constituency,
registered a protest. He revealed that at no time has the
government consulted the backbenchers on any major issue. He
now realized that the backbenchers have been no more than
spineless puppets who have been expected to jump at the pull of
every string by their masters. Mr. Oscar Johnson, P.L.P. member
for Cat Island, echoed this protest.
*********


and really ours?


Is this I
EDITOR, The Tribune,
I would be very thankful if
you could allow me some space
in your valuable newspaper to
express my ideas to those who
are really blind in fact to
acknowledge the game that the
leaders of this country are
playing.
After reading The Tribune
story where Clyde Gardiner is
disgusted over the nomination
of Sinclair Outten: It is totally
disgraceful to see how the
leaders of this country are
saying that this land is ours
when all the time they are
giving us someone who is not a
Bahamian to represent us. Isn't
this a shame? When we have in
these 700 islands men who are
suitable to represent us in
every which way possible.
People, we must all come to
our senses to know that the
present Government doesn't
regard us as Bahamians. When
the by-election is over let's
show the P.L.P. that the people
in St. Barnabas are not being
fooled by irresponsible
statements they have been
making and showing because
action speaks for itself.
For instance take Mr.
Williams who is contesting the
seat for the Labour people, just
look at the way he is trying to
struggle for the workers and is
also trying to combat the
decrease of employment and
low wages his fellow Brothers
are receiving now isn't he a
hard working spokesman for
the people? If he or the other
candidates happen to be
elected this will show that the
foolishness that the present


HOLIDAY INN DISPUTE

between the owners of the
Holiday Inn hotel in Freeport
and the Freeport local branch
of the Bahamas Hotel and
Catering Workers Union.
"Although no trade dispute
has been filed by either side
the owners of that hotel have
threatened to close the hotel
unless the wage offer they
made to the union on Sunday

Mr. Darling charged that the
owners of the hotel had "not
acted in accordance with the
requirements of the law. No
dispute had been filed by the
hotel with my Ministry and
certainly it follows that
management has not observed
the required time.
"If, therefore, the Holiday

close its doors without going
through the procedures
prescribed by law, then the
owners will clearly be declaring

Bahamian people with their racist propaganda.
The world press hailed the advent of the P.L.P. government in
1967. By the time of Independence in July this year the world
press had turned against the Bahamas because of outrages
perpetrated by the P.L.P. government.
But for a short period news writers and columnists in the U.S.
caught the spirit of the independence movement. Glowing articles
were written about the celebrations ... and about the Bahamian
people. I wondered how long this would last.
Jack Kofoed, whose column appears daily in The Miami
Herald, made a special trip to Nassau after the independence
celebrations and wrote a glowing story about what he saw and did
here. He said that the Bahamian people had lost none of their old
charm.
But it is now clear that his suspicions of the P.L.P. government
had not been removed.
This has come out clearly in comments in his column on
December 1st on Mr. Hanna's announcement on the casinos.
"When the Bahamas became an independent nation," Kofoed*
wrote, "the government, seeking American investors, solemnly
promised there would never be nationalization of business in the
islands. Now, it's announced that gambling casinos at Freeport
and Nassau will be taken over in January 1976. Nationalized,
brothers and sisters, nationalized! If Bahamians can do that to
dice tables and roulette wheels, why not to any business?"
No matter what Mr. Hanna may say ..no one trusts this
government today. And with good reason.

In this article I am not going to discuss the rights or wrongs of
gambling casinos. That's the business of the Bahamas Christian
Council.
I feel today that the people who control the affairs of the
Bahamas have no sense of right or wrong. It's a waste of time to
talk to them about Christian values ... even ministers of the gospel
themselves seem to have lost touch with Christian responsibilities.
In a few short paragraphs I will tell you why the government
could not successfully operate a casino.
The first reason is that, if there were no limit on the bets...
as is now the case ... the government could be made bankrupt
overnight by a couple of big gamblers who had a winning streak.
The second reason is that the government could not risk high
stakes for the reason that they would have no way of collecting
debts from heavy losers.
The professionals who run casinos know the credit rating of
the big gamblers. They take them to the limit of their credit and
they have their own way of collecting debts from losers. They
have their "connections" on "the other side" who are able to
collect debts for them.
The government would be unable to collect debts from foreign
gamblers because thev would be outside the jurisdiction of the

dealing with the workers of
their establishment."
The Minister said he met
with the owners "or their
agents" on Saturday, Dec. 8
and Sunday, Dec. 9 "in an
eTfort to persuade
them from following what
would be an illegal course of
action" and then pointed out
the five stages the dispute had
taken.
the union gave them their
proposals on Oct. 25.
the hotel proposed to give
their counter proposals on
Nov. 10, but this was not done
as promised.
the hotel did give a
proposal on Nov. 14, but this
did not include wages
it was not until Saturday,
Dec. 8 "at my insistence" that
Holiday Inn agreed to give the
union their wage proposals;
and
Holiday Inn gave the wage
proposals to the union on
Sunday, Dec. 9 and demanded
that the union accept
everything "or they would
close the hotel on Monday,
Dec. 10.
"It should be made clear that
all of these threats to close the
hotel have come from the
owners or their agents out of
Memphis, Tennessee," the
Minister said.
"These threats and tactics
are clearly irresponsible. I find
it difficult to believe, in this
day and age, that people can be
so callous to their workers or
can adopt an attitude which
shows that they have no
concern for the community on
or for this growing young
nation.
The Minister ended by
saying "we feel that this is a
serious matter and that this is
no time for wild threats or
unreasonable actions.
And he sounded the
warning: "I would strongly
urge the owners of the
Freeport Holiday Inn to bear
in mind that the rule of law
applies equally to them as to
their wnrk-er- "

SI Tuesday, December 11, 1973


By Abigail Van Buren
S19nm i Cica Tr tm.e-N. Y. News Sa., iec.
DEAR ABBY: Our son is a college senior at the state
university. He makes no secret of the fact that he and his
irl friend [also 21] are shacking up near campus.
We disapprove of this sort of arrangement, and he
knows it, but he is 21 and we have nothing to say about his
lifestyle. Now for the problem: He asked if he could bring
his girl home for Christmas vacation. We know they sleep
together at school, but should we let them sleep together in
our home?
My sister says, "Don't be a hypocrite. Even if you put
them up in separate bedrooms, you know they'll manage to
get together some time during the night anyway."
Maybe she's right, but I still don't feel that we should
put them up together like a married couple in our guest
room.
So, what should I do? OLD FASHIONED MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: In your home, you make the rules,
so if you disapprove of your son's lifestyle at school, and he
knows it, simply tell him there will be no shacking up
auder your roof. And if he doesn't like it, he can abide by
the house rules, or stay in a motel.

DEAR ABBY: To make a long story short, I am in love
with my first cousin and he's in love with me. We have
been told that first cousins cannot marry because their
children will not be normal. Is that right? And if it is, if
my cousin has a vasectomy and produces the doctor's
certificate stating he has had one, it will make him unable
to have any children, right?
So if he can't have any children, that eliminates the
problem of whether they will be normal or not, doesn't it?
Please answer this in the newspaper because neither
one of us can get mail at home without somebody snooping
to see what it was before we get home. Thank you.
COUSIN LOVER
DEAR LOVER: First cousins CAN marry in some
states. Check with your clergyman [or justice of the peace
to find out whether your state permits it. [A lawyer will
alod be able to tell you.]

DEAR ABBY: I have a neighbor who makes a habit of
borrowing from me, but she never returns a thing. I have
to go over there and get it when I need it.
Right now she has my electric mixer, my turkey roast-
ing pan, my poker chips, my popcorn popper and my
portable record player. It's not like she isn't over here
every day. She could just as easily bring those things back,
but she doesn't.
How can I get my things back without losing her
friendship? She is a very sensitive person, and I don't want
to hurt her feelings. NO GUTS
DEAR NO: When people with ao "guts" lend things to
people with an abundance of It it's bad news.
Don't wait for her to return what she's borrowed. Go to

TRAINING

SEMINAR

THIS

WEEK
MR. PAUL H. Chaddock, of
Ohio, arrives in Nassau this
week to conduct a seminar on
the topic "Managing the
training function to meet
today's nee "'.
This seminar is being
sponsored by the Bahamas
Association for Manpower
Training and Development.
It is being held at the Public
Service Training Centre,
Arawak Cay, and will run for
three full days beginning
tomorrow.
"Only a few participants
have enrolled from the private
sector, although it has been
this sector from which the hue
and cry have come that
Bahamians were not qualified
to fill top positions in private
industry. BAMTAD has always
been concerned about this, and
accordingly, took steps to
bring a professional of Mr.
Chaddock's calibre to Nassau
in the hope that a start could
be made at home to meet a
very pressing need," a
spokesman said.
The response from the
public sector has been very
good, in that about 50 per cent
of the registrants, to date,
come from the public service.
There is still time to solicit
support from the private sector
and to promote what we know
will be a very worthwhile
exercise. On the other hand,
we wish this to be a viable
proposition.
If you wish to attend or to
have a member of your staff
attend, call Miss Albertha
Ferguson at telephone 5-5468
or Mr. T. V. Arnett at telephone
24471.


Stock up now buy twice what
you think you'll need and you'll
never get caught short during the
merriest picture-taking season of
the year.


WHEN YOU CARE ENOUGH, GIVE THE VERY BEST-

Death cannot dim the face we

The memory of his smile
The wonderful things he did
for us,
To make this life worth while.
But now his task is over
We love to let you know
How proud we are that you
were ours
Because we love you so.
Sadly missed by his wife Irene,

Saints turn


on all


the power


By GLADSTONE THURSTON


WHETHER it was a mistake
or not, it certainly benefited
the Container Saints when they
were moved from the highly
competitive Paradise League
into the once Becks Cougars
dominated Nassau League.
To Saints guard Reggie
Demeritte it was like moving
into a junior league. lie could
not see why they should not be
undefeated.
Though dropped twice in
tre loss column, the Saints
remain well contained and
30-point performance by
forward/guards Kermit "Par"
Rolle and Eric Rahming last
night in their 116-91 victory
over Superwash Arawaks drew
a first place tic with Becks, the
defending champs.
Both teams now having won
ten games each meet in their
second showdown tomorrow
night in a battle that will
decided who takes the Nassau
League into the Yuletide
break.
The Saints have always been
known for their offensive
power and they really turned it
on last night. Rolle scored 14
of 25 from the field and two of
two from the free throw line to
go along with his game of 20
rebounds. Rahming who went
13 for 19 from the field and
four for six from the line
contributed eight assists.
Even rookies Kevin Rolle
an'J Reubin Knowles did their
sha.e of damage. Formerly of
the championship Saints
Juniors, Kevin last night
captured 19 rebounds and
scored 13 points. Knowles
added 22 points and gave a
game high of 11 assists.
Averaging a hot league
leading 108.6 points per game,
the Saints from 12 games
played scored 607 of their
1334 from the field and 97 of
166 from the free throw line.
They lead both the free throw
and field goal categories.
Though their board strength
took quite a shaking this
season with the loss of left
hand forward Lionel "Snake"
Evans, they are still making
their presence felt with a
rebounding average of 58 per
game.
"We had a runaway system
whereby when the ball hit that
basket the three guards start
running because they knew
that if the ball was coming,"
recalled former coach Andrew
Demeritte. "Snake on the
boards really use to get that
runaway going."
Evans, leaving the Saints for
the first time in his career takes
up resident this season with
Paradise League leading
Strachan's Auto.
Rookie guard Reuhin
Mounts topped the Arawaks
with a team high of 27 points.
Charles Deveaux added 22 and
Armbristcr gave ten assists.
The Saints took no time to
start burning and beginning
with Demeritte's opening
baskets stormed to a 44-18
lead after 12 minutes of play.
Kermit topped that splurge
with 16. Rahming scored eight
of his 12 while giving lff six
assists.
Keeping the Arawaks in the
battle was a 14 point
performance by Deveaux as
they trailed 56-39 by the end
of the first half.
The Saints in that period
scored 26 of 55 from the field
and four of four from the free
throw line.
Continuing their attack in
the second half, Kermit and


Rahming together rattled off a
total of 32 points as the Saints
maintained their lead 78-63 10
minutes into that period.
Knowles came through with an
additional 14 points and five
assists.
Top performances by
Mounts who scored 23 in the
second half was the basis of the
Arawaks outscoring the Saints
52-50 in that period. Mounts
went 10 for 13 from the field
and three of five from the free
throw line.
Going into the final three
minutes of play, it was easy for
the Saints who stretched their
108-92 command onto victory.

Obed winds up best year yet


IN THl TWILIGHT of the
busiest and most productive
season of his six-year career,
Bahamas welterweight champ
:lisha Obed winds up his 1973
campaign Friday with a ten
round match against Puerto
Rican middleweight Saulo
I ernandei
Satged at the Nassau
Stadium. Obed going against
his third Puerto Rican
opponent this year seeks his
41st straight victory in an
unbeaten career.
In his contention for the
coveted British Empire and
World Welterweight titles,
Obed this year fought a total
of ten main events eight of
which ended within the
distance. The only boxers to
carry him the distance were
Roy Goss and Bunny Grant

Obed got the unanimous
decision.
The 2 1 -year-old
welterweight champ on
October 19 made a sensational
debut on the Miami Beach
scene with a decisive eighth
round technical knockout
victory over Puerto Rican
middleweight Jose Papo
Melendez. One month later, he
was matched up against Florida
middleweight champ Dennis
Riggs. Riggs, after four rounds
became Obed's 39th victory.
Fifth ranked in the North
American ratings, Washington
middleweight Mike Lankester
last week at the Miami Beach
Auditorium was courageous in
his attack but ring veteran Moe
Fleischer's teachings did not go


to waste. Obed stopped
Lankester in the eighth.
Boxing fans Friday will see
Obed climax the most
sensational year for any boxer
on the local scene. Eleven main
events in one year is a ring
record locally.
Obed in 1973 has moved
from tenth in the British
Empire ratings to fourth. He is
now tenth rated by the World
Boxing Council.
Plans are now underway for
a British Empire title fight
against Clyde Gray, of Canada,
and Charkey Ramon, of
Australia.
