Bahamian's complaint brings govt. harassment


By NICKI KELLY
A PUBLIC-SPIRITED BAHAMIAN who
chose to express his views has now become the
object of government harassment.
Two weeks ago Mr. Oswald Bernard came to
The Tribune to make a statement following the
night-time attack on an elderly American
couple while they were walking between the
Sonesta and Nassau Beach Hotels on Cable
Beach.
As a result of the incident, Mr. Morris
Stirman, a visitor for 26 years, bought space in
both dailies to offer a $1,000 reward for
information leading to the arrest of his
attackers, and to prominently warn of the

FAWKES MAY

RETURN

TO POLITICS
MR. RANDOL FAWKES,
(pictured) who for 16 years
represented Labour in the
House, today ..nnoiici d that
he is once' again considering a
return to politics and giving
serious thought to contesting
the St. Barnabas by-election.
Defeated in the district by
Mr. Outten has since
November 1 obtained
Bahamian citizenship and will
be re-contesting the election,
again as the PLP's nominee.
"The Commonwealth
Labour Party is having a
meeting at the House of
Labour Sunday at which time
I will seek the party's
endorsement of my
candidature," Mr. Fawkes
said.
At the same time the CLP's
platform for the by-election
will be presented.
"I am interested in
contesting the election as a
result of the many requests
made to me by responsible
citizens of St. Barnabas for
the restoration of decency in
the public's affairs," Mr.
Fawkes declared.
The ex-representative
maintained that MR. CLYDE
GARDINER, also a candidate
in the election, must share
the blame for the Outten
situation.
He said Mr. Gardiner, a
PLP, sponsored Mr. Outten in
the 1972 election as a person
worthy of support, "well
knowing that he wasn't."
Mr. Gardiner decided to
run in the by-election as an
Independent when his
candidature was turned down
by the PLP in favour of Mr.
Outten whom Mr. Gardiner
has since described as "a
paper Bahamian."
Another disappointed PLP
hopeful, MR. WENFRED
"Sife" HEASTIE, is also
contesting the election, as is
MR.DUDLEY WILLIAMS, the
choice of the labour unions,
and MR. ARTHUR
FOULKES the Free National
Movement candidate.
Mr. Fawkes, 49, was the
deciding force in bringing the
PLP to power in 1967 when
his support gave the PLP the
one-man majority it needed
to form a government
In recognition of this fact
Mr. Fawkes was named
Minister of Labour

dangers to hotel guests walking in the area.
Mr. Stirman pointed out that the pathway
between the two hotels was overgrown with
bushes and the lighting inadequate.
A few days after the Stirman story appeared
in print, Mr. Oswald Bernard, a former
bell-captain at the Sonesta, spoke to a reporter
at The Tribune.
WARNED, BUT-
He said that early this year he had warned
Tourism Minister Clement Maynard personally
of the potential danger to visitors of the stretch
of road between the Sonesta and Nassau Beach.
"I literally begged him to have the bushes
cut down and the path lighted," Mr. Bernard
said. He told The Tribune he had gone to the


Minister because of the number of purse
snatchings and attacks made on visitors walking
between the two hotels.
Mr. Bernard said it was his impression when
he left that Mr. Maynard had neither listened
nor understood a word he had said.
"How much would it have cost to do as I
begged, against Mr. Stirman's advertisement?"
he asked.
Yesterday Mr. Bernard again came to see The
Tribune. He was visibly disturbed.
He said he had been approached on his
job by men he assumed to be immigration
officers, challenged to prove he was a
Bahamian, and required to drive home
there and then to produce his passport


names Outten


Islander


FORMER ST. BARNABAS representative
Randol Fawkes today produced the tape of a
radio braodcast he made on September 18,
1972 which clearly names Mr. Sinclair Outten
as a Turks Islander.
The broadcast, made according to Mr.
Fawkes on the eve of last year's general
election, was the last of the political radio
addresses by candidates.
After detailing a number of allegations
against the various PLP nominees, Mr. Fawkes
then referred to Mr. Outten, who was
subsequently disqualified from holding his seat
as the representative for St. Barnabas.
"And then there is Sinclair Outten who is
from Turks Island and fears for his own future
and the future of his fellow countrymen," Mr.
Fawkes said in his radio address.
Mr. Outten beat out Mr. Fawkes in the
election but had to vacate the St. Barnabas
seat after learning and disclosing that he was
born at Turks Island and not in the Bahams as
he had previously tho'ht.,
Today Mr. Fawkea mid he proposes
Monday to make a formal request to
the Attorney General to institute
proceedings against Mr. Outten for
recovery of all the money which he
alleges has been wrongfully paid him
since September 19, 1972 to the
present.
A similar letter is to go to Finance Minister
Arthur Hanna "as keeper of the people's
money."
Mr. Outten obtained Bahamian citizenship
on November I and will be contesting the
January 18 by-election.
Mr. Fawkes claimed this morning that in the
early part of 1972 he heard Nurse Selver of
Fort Fincastle tell Mr. Outten: "Boy. why


don't you leave Bahamian politics alone. You
know when you came here you were about
nine years old, holding your father's hand and
wearing short pants."
According to Mr. Fawkes he went to Nurse
Selver and asked if the story was true and she
confirmed that it was. He later visited Mr.
Sinclair Outten's office on the corner of
Andros Avenue and Crooked Island Street, and
found out that it was true.
Despite his September 18 broadcast Mr.
Outten went ahead and ran for office, Mr.
Fawkes charged. One day after the election he
continued, "Mr. Outten came up to the House
of Labour and asked me if I intended to unseat
him.
"I told him 'no'. That is a matter between
yourself and your conscience, and that as far
as I am concerned, I bear no malice."
Asked why he had kept his information on
Mr. Outten a secret for so long Mr. Fawkes
replied:
"If I had pushed it too vehemently, it is a
foregone conclusion that government would
have granted him belongership status
immediately and the issue would have been
illegally antedated. In that way the issue would
have been lost forever."

Mr. Fawkes said also that had he opposed
Mr. Outten's election earlier in an Elections
Court, he would have won the case but lost the
seat to Mr. I. G. Stubbs, the FNM candidate
who polled the second largest number of votes.
"'The situation is," said Mr. Fawkes, "I want
Mr. Outten to know that he knew long before
election time where he was born, and if he
persists in misleading Bahamians further, I will
have no other choice but to place the
documentary evidence that I have in the hands
of the proper authorities."


Outten: Allegations



malicious, ridiculous


By NICKI KELLY
MR. SINCLAIR OUTTEN
today labelled as "malicious
and ridiculous" certain
allegations by attorney
Randol Fawkes concerning his
position as a candidate in the
1972 general election.
This morning Mr. Fawkes
referred to a Nurse Selver of
Fort Fincastle whom he said
had warned Mr. Outten in
September 1972 not to run in
that year's election because he
was not a Bahamian.
"I categorically state that I
don't know Nurse Selver. I
never met her and Mr. Fawkes
has never seen the two of us
discussing anything of this
nature. Therefore I don't
understand how he can make
such a comment."
Mr. Outten said that on the
day following the election, he
went to Mr. Fawkes's office at
the House of Labour,
expressed his sympathy at Mr.
Fawkes' loss of the election
and said he had to admit that
the Labour leader had made a
contribution to labour.
"I told him however that I
felt he had been rejected as a
result of his antics in the House
and because he had not made
any real meaningful
contribution to St. Barnabas,"
Mr. Outten told The Tribune
today.
"His reply was that as far as
he was concerned, the Labour
party was dead. I asked him
whether he intended to
continue in politics and he said
he wasn't sure, bea',ase he
wanted to contribute his time
to writing.
"He asked if he would ,*
accepted to serve in ai


capacity in government," Mr.
Outten said.
"I told him that this would
have to be referred to my
leader. Mr. Fawkes then sat
down and typed out a letter to
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling and gave it to me to
deliver.
"He said in the letter that he
was prepared to serve in any
capacity."
Mr. Outten did not recall
however he handed the letter
to Mr. Pindling personally or
whether he gave it to someone
else to give to him.
Either the same day or the
day after, Mr. Outten said, he
went to visit the FNM's
candidate Mr. 1. G. Stubbs,
with whom he had gone to
school. The late George Sands
accompanied him to Mr.
Stubbs' house on Soldier Road.
"I said 'I.G. you went
through the battle and lost, but
in the future you may be
successful,' I told him I bore no
malice and he replied in the
same. vein. We chatted for a
while and then Mr. Sands and I
left," Mr. Outten said.
His visits to Mr. Fawkes and
Mr. Stubbs were done in good
faith, he maintained. As far as
he knew, Mr. Outten said. Mr.
Fawkes had never come to his
headquarters during the 1972
campaign as he was now
claiming.
"Therefore I don't know
how he can say he confirmed
anything from such a visit.
"His allegations are
malicious and ridiculous, and I
am very, very disappointed in
Mr. Fawkes.


"He says he has documentary
evidence. I say if he has any
such evidence then he should
come forward and make it
public. Anyone can put
anything on tape. The Nixon
administration has proven
that."
Mr. Outten questioned why
Mr. Fawkes had not chosen to
make a fuss before. "If he had
authentic information that
would have put him in a
position to win the St.
Barnabas seat I feel he would
have presented it before."

He spoke to newsmen before

Amin said his economic war

Amin told one questioner:
"If you go to Britain now
you'll find Asians are buying

Tanzania, Kenya and so on.
They buy mansions to the
extent that England is

The irony of the situation is that Mr.
Bernard, for 20 years a stalwart supporter of
the Progressive Liberal Party, is known
personally to Mr. Maynard, Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling and Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna from the days when as a taxi
driver in the '50s and '60s- he ferried PLP
voters to and from the polls at his own expense.
Mr. Bernard found it difficult to keep the
emotion from his voice as he told his story.
"In 1953 1 was a waiter at Cat Cay. I had
been there two years, but the owner, a big man,
had never addressed me by name. When he

of the Bahamas from 1957 to
1960, who was injured in a
hunting accident in England
about a fortnight ago, died
earlier this week at the age of
68.
Memorial services will be
kold for him tomorrow at his
home in Burwash, East
Sussex.
A keen huntsman Sir

Nassau Operatic Society and
the Bahamas Music Festival;
and a son and a daughter.
Sir Raynor entered the
Nigerian Political Service in
1928; was transferred to
Cyprus as administrative
officer in 1937, became
Commissioner, in 1947 and
Chief Commissioner in 1948.
He was Colonial Secretary of
Bermuda in 1951 and
Governor and Command-
er-in-Chief of the Falkland
Islands in 1954. He was
Justice of the Peace for East
Sussex.
His recreations were tennis
and hunting and he was a

Sports Club.


Gardiner:

PLP

has no

democracy

"There is no democracy left
in the Progressive Liberal Party
... it has become the unwilling
instrument to promote
dictatorial powers,"
independent St. Barnabas
election candidate Clyde
Gardiner has declared in a press
release.
Mr. Gardiner, a PLP
stalwart, abandoned the party
and announced his
independent candidacy after
Sinclair Outten was named the
party's official nominee even
though the January 18
by-election was necessitated
by Mr. Outten's resignation as
a result of the discovery that
he was non-Bahamian when he
took the seat during the
September general elections
last year. He has since been
granted Bahamian citizenship.
Said Mr. Gardiner: "In
recent times we have witnessed
a cancerous sore slowly but
surely gnaw away the strong
foundations of democracy and
fairplay that once made the
PLP the pride of every black
Bahamaian.
"We see the evil tentacles of
despotism and greed reach out
to choke the last remnants of
abundant life from the PLP".
He said the cancer has
reached into St. Barnabas.
"We have been misled (Mr.
Outten's non-Bahamian status)
and slighted (the party's choice
of Mr. Outten to again be its
standard bearer) to put it very
mildly.
"Our wishes and desires have
not mattered in the least to the
now untouchables who direct
the PLP.
"It is with these
sentiments," Mr. Gardiner
declared, "that I have
committed myself to the
undesired task of fighting at all
costs my once-beloved party in
the St. Barnabas by-election."
Also breaking ranks to
contest the seat against the
party's choice is PLP National
General Council member and
party stalwart WENFRED
"SIFE" HEASTIE.

TELEVISION


INTERFERON CE


ISLE TELEVIDEO
INTERNATIONAL this week
became the second enterprise
to announce a proposal to
apply' technological advances
to the improvement of
television reception within the
Bahamian archipelago.
ITI in a press release frankly
conceded that it was because
of the publicity already given
Westinghouse Corporation's
S' T-Com" (Tethered
Commonucation) system that
ITI was revealing its own
proposals.
The two systems propose
different means to achieve the
same end providing clearer
reception of electronic signals
for the far-flung Bahamian
islands.
ITI yesterday filed with the
Registrar General an
application to patent its
system.
The patent application is
related to "the invention of a
synthetic radiation belt that
can carry up to seven channels
of colour television in a
line-of-sight propogation
circuit, half a mile high, around
a long curved surface of ocean
water abounding in
archipelagos and can reach as
far as Trinidad."
The "propogation circuit"
would consist of a series of
tethered balloons, one for each
island served by the system.
The low-level radiation belt
system based on the same
principles applying to the
22,300-mile-high Telstar
system is called
"FORBSAT," according to the
ITI statement.
FORBSAT would pick up
the very high frequency (VHF)
television signals, convert them
to ultra high frequency (UHF)
for transmission along the
proposed radiation belt. The
signals would then be
transferred to rebroadcasting
antennas on each island for
direct transmission to local
viewers.
Each viewer on the system
would need an ITI-supplied
small bow-tie antenna and a

allocation it won't be possible
for the other two major oil
suppliers Esso and Shell to
"take up the slack" caused by
the Texaco cutback.
Esso and Shell customers are
likely to get preference at the
local gas stations, a spokesman
said, although no "rationing"
measures have yet been put
into effect.

Texaco chief Burnes
described the oil supply
pattern for the whole world
today as "chaotic". He said the
whole supply pattern had been
disrupted and indications were
that is would likely worsen.

On November 28 two
days after Texaco's shock
announcement Prime
Minister Pindling asked
Bahamians to join in a
"voluntary" 15 percent
cutback to help in the
worsening fuel crisis.

So far Esso has not suffered
any oil cutback from Its'
suppliers. Shell has suffered an
eight percent cutback, buot have
been able. according to mneral


manager David Pownall, to
"maintain existing levels of
supplies to existing
customers."

Mr. Pownall said that his
company was not in a position
to service any new customers,
but said they had been able to
maintain existing levels of
supplies locally thanks to the
"considerable co-operation"
they had received from some
of their major customers.

THE EFFECTS of Texaco's
30 percent cutback in the
Bahamas announced in late
November by general manager
C. A. Burnes Jr., are beginning
to be felt in Nassau this week.
Some motorists are finding
themselves being limited at the
gas pumps on their purchases.
"Some of our dealers are
definitely going to run out and
there's nothing we car: do
about it," Mr. Burnes said
Friday.
After Texaco's November 26
statement that "as a result of
worldwide crude oil shortages"
the company had been forced
to reduce Bahamas sales of all
fuels by 30 percent "some
dealers just continued on as if
nothing was happening," he
said.
Once they use up their
allocations for December there
is nothing Texaco can do for
them, Mr. Burnes said. And it
may be that there could be
some sort of rationing of gas to
conserve supplies for the rest
of this month.

MEMPHIS Thirty-nine
Memphis policemen have been
disciplined following an
investigation of sexual
involvement between officers
and a teenaged woman, police
director Jay Hubbard said.
Hubbard issued a final
report on the involvement
between personnel in the
1,100-man department and
Charlotte Tyler, 19, of Paris,
Arkansas, who told in
November of having sexual
relations with policemen.
"A total of 39 officers have
been disciplined either for
participation or failure to
exercise the judgment and
control expected of
supervisory rank," Hubbard
said.
Discipline ranged from
verbal reprimands to 45-day
suspensions with out pay.
"The evidence supports a
finding that 24 officers
actually had relationships with
the woman," Hubbard said.
"Of those, two can be
confirmed as having occurred
on duty and in a police
vehicle."
He said: "There is no
evidence to show that police
response to calls for service
was degraded
Some of those suspended
were put on probation which
means further misconduct
could lead to demotion or
dismissal. Those on probation
are also ineligible to compete
for promotions for up to 18
months.
Mrs. Tyler was. arrested in
October on a charge on
soliciting for prostitution. A
physical examination, required
by law, found she had a general
disease.
Mrs. Tyler told vice squad
officers that if she had the

officers did, too. (AP)

IS ON

ITS WAY
WASHINGTON The
House of Representatives has
passed and sent to the Senate
legislation that could put the
nation on year-round daylight
saving time by the second week
in January.
The bill would require
clocks be set ahead one hour
on the fourth Sunday after it is
signed into law. Year-round
daylight saving time was one of
the measures requested by
President Nixon to help save
fuel during the energy crisis.
The nation would remain on
advanced time through
October 1975 under the bill.
States split by two time
zones would be allowed to
exempt one zone so that the
entire state could remain on
the same time. The bill
contains provisions
automatically exempting
Indiana and Hawaii.
The White House has said
that shifting an hour of
daylight from the morning to
the evening hours could cut

per cent, particularly in the
northern regions of the
country.
American consumers will
pay more for electricity as
utility companies seek higher
rates to offset sharply rising
fuel costs and energy-saving
cutbacks.
In recent weeks, at least 12
major power companies have
applied for rate increases
totaling $495 million, and an
industry spokesman said that
this was only the beginning.
But officials travelling with
U.S. Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger say the Arabs may
resume limited oil shipments to
the United States next month
if the Geneva peace talks show
some progress.


AIR FAME FOR HUGHES

DAYTON Billionaire Howard Hughes and three other
aviation pioneers were enshrined in the aviation hall of fame
today.
Hughes, a recluse who has not appeared in public for years, did
not attend the ceremonies but sent a telegram expressing his
appreciation for the honour.
His award was accepted by Ed Lund, the navigator who
accompained Hughes on his record-setting round-the-world flight
in 1938.
There had been reports that Hughes might make an appearance
at the ceremonies. But the rumours were squelched Friday by a
close friend of Hughes, retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Ira Eaker, who
said Hughes would not be present.

rPAUL GETTY IS FREED

LOOK, THEY CUT OFF AN EAR, HE TOLD POLICE


ROME J. Paul Getty III
arrived in Rome this afternoon,
several hours after he was
found standing in a rainstorm
near a southern town.
The 17-year-old grandson of
the American oil billionaire
had been missing for five
months.


-Marilyn and J.F.K.

NEW YORK Gossip columnist Earl Wilson says
Marilyn Monroe had a clandestine companionship with the
late President John F. Kennedy for the last year of her life.
"Marilyn Monroe was his happy collaborator in this
distinctly nonpolitical area of his life," Wilson wrote in his
new book "Show Business Laid Bare" which G. P.
Putnam's Sons will publish Jan. 18.
Wilson said he knew Miss Monroe well himself and also
got other information from Hollywood columnist Sidney
Skolsky and New'York dress designer Henry Rosenfeld.
Miss Monroe died of an overdose of sleeping pills on Aug.
5, 1962 at age 36.
He quotes Peter Lawford, the actor and former husband
of Kennedy's sister Patricia, as saying Lawford was on the
phone with Marilyn when she lost consciousness and her
last words were, "Say goodbye Pat, say goodbye to the
President and say goodbye to yourself because you're a nice
guy."
Lawford, Skolsky and Rosenfeld were not immediately
available for comment. (AP)


Peace talks


may be delayed


DAMASCUS U.S. officials
have admitted for the first time
that the opening of the
Arab-Israeli peace conference
in Geneva may be delayed "a
day or so."
Flying here with Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger for a
talk with President Hafez
Assad of Syria, they said the
"technical" details for getting
the conference under way
probably will be completed
while Kissinger is in Israel.
But the U.S. officials who
have expected the talks to
begin Tuesday now say there
may be delay, without
detailing why.
They continue to express
strong confidence, however,
that the conference will be
held.
Kissinger, the first American'
of State to visit Syria since
John Foster Dulles in 1953,
wanted to talk to Assad about
some 120 Israeli war prisoners
captured in the October war or
the 1967 war. The prisoners
may be behind the fears of
delay.
A Syrian official had
warned in advance that Assad
is interested primarily in
hearing about an Israeli
withdrawal from occupied
Arab land and that the trip
would be a waste of time if
Kissinger brought up issues
such as the prisoner question.
Abba Eban, the Israeli
Foreign Minister, has said Israel
will attend the Geneva talks
but will not deal with Syria
unless the Syrians first turn
over a list of the Israeli
prisoners.
Syria has refused to release
the prisoners except as part of
a deal including Israeli


withdrawal from occupied
Syrian territory.
A conference in which the
Israelis snubbed Syria, which
with Egypt was a major Arab
combatant in the October war,
would be undermined from the
beginning. Kissinger is
expected to exercise his
negotiating talents in Damascus
and Tel Aviv in an effort to
resolve the standoff before the
talks convene.
Abdel Halim Khaddam, the
Syrian Foreign Minister, was at
Damascus' International
airport to meet Kissinger.

reported in Paris today.


He was driven to Rome
police headquarters together
with his mother, former actress
Gail Harris, for questioning by
a magistrate on his kidnapping.
The boy appeared in good
health despite his lengthy
captivity and the loss of his
right ear.
The youth told police who
found him on a highway that
the ear was cut off by the men
who kidnapped him in Rome
five months ago.
The Getty family reportedly


paid a ransom of 1.7 billion.
lire, or 2.7 million dollars, for
his freedom.
"I'm Paul. Getty, captain,

first words to the police patrol
which found him.
Drenched from a rainstorm
and shivering in the cold, the
17-year-old youth was found
standing under the shelter of'a'
gas station on a, remote
highway about 100 kilometers
south of Salerno.


Soldier on, Britoi


LONDON Britons were
urged to "soldier on" today as
the full impact of the toughest
austerity programme since
World War II sank in.
There were signs of more
shock treatment coming to pull
the country back from
economic disaster.
The spirit of national unity
was set by Harold Wilson,
leader of the Oposition Labour
Party, who toned down his
criticism of Prime Minister
Edward Heath and called on
everyone to "get their coats off
and work unitedly for Britain."
One of Wilson's top party
lieutenants, Roy Jenkins,
declared: "A little wartime
spirit without the bombs or the
casualties will do none of us
any harm."
"Something should be done
about the unions," said Wendy
Smith, a secretary. 'They are
getting much too powerful
when they can affect
everybody's life like this."
Meanwhile, love in a cold
climate is good for the system,
the fuel-starved British were
told today.
Better in fact than a
fuel-consuming sauna bath,
said Dr. Eric Rimmer.
"Apart from being good
exercise, it helps to keep you
warm," he explained for the
benefit of those who might not
know.
Rimmer's advice in the
weekly "Medical News"
brought a swift response from
the ecology buffs fearful of a
baby boom.
"I should like to urge all
couples going to bed early to
make sure they take their
contraceptives with them,"
said Mrs. Dylis Cossey of the


Birth Control Association.
The Family Planning
Association was similarly
concerned.
"Of course we like people to
enjoy themselves but we do
hope they will be responsible
about it," their spokesman
said.
That was the lighter side of a
national crisis that already has
hit into thousands of homes
and soon will put its shivering
finger on virtually everyone.
Power cuts hit parts of
London and other cities late
Friday the result of
industrial disputes in the coal,
rail and electricity industries.
Out came the candles which
most households have kept in
store from previous winter
troubles.
Gasoline prices went up 7
cents a gallon at midnight, the
result of the Arab oil squeeze.
The average grade now costs 96
cents a gallon.
Worse is to come, with stiff
new taxes expected from
treasury chief Anthony Barber
on Monday.
Factories already are under
orders to work only three days
a week to spread the power
load.

Londoners seemed to bq
taking the crisis with
customary calm. Panic buying
of gasoline early in the week
soon fizzled out. Queues at'
service stations now seldom'
stretch more than a dozen or
so cars.
Even Oposition politicians
were taking the situation with
considerable restraint, urging.
the nation to buckle under and
work itself out of trouble.
Roy Jenkins, Labourite
spokesman on finance, told a-
Birmingham rally that trouble
of this kind put a premium on
equality and stability and
added: "A little of the wartime
spirit without the bombs or the
casualties will do none of us
any harm."
Labourite leader Harold
Wilson urged the Conservative
government of hand the job of
settling industrial unrest to
William Whitelaw, lately
returned from a 20-month stint
as Secretary for Northern
Ireland.
Wilson's reasoning, though
unstated, clearly was that if
Whitelaw could get feuding
Irishmen to talk together he
could surely persuade a'
settlement from British
miners.

Fat cats on parade

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
"HERE comes one of the fat cats," a friend of mine laughed.
"Where?", I asked looking out of the window of the car
expecting to see a fat cat on the side of the road.
"Don't you know what a fat cat is in Nassau today?", my
friend asked. "Look at this handsome new car just ahead of us
and you will see a fat cat behind the wheel."
"Is that what they call the newly rich politicians?", I asked.
"Yes," my friend said, "and they're so brazen about it, you'd
think that, with all the unemployment in the island today, they
would be more discreet."
"Do you know the fat cat in this car?", I asked innocently.
"No, but you can tell them by the blue lince plates on their
cars," my friend said. "They have to wear a special plate to make
sure a policeman sees their approach and doesn't fail to salute
when they pass, and so the hungry ones will know that this is still
a prosperous land."
We were driving down Dowdeswell Street at the time.
Three men were idling at Dowdeswell and Armstrong Streets.
They bore hungry, confused looks on their faces. It was clear that
these men had nothing to do, nowhere to go.
And I wondered whether they had noticed the fat cat that had
just driven by ... and, if so, whether it made any impression on
their minds.
I wondered also whether they remembered the days ... not long
ago ... when they had somewhere to go and they were not
hungry.

I was thinking about this incident the following day.
I asked a senior member of my staff whether there were really
many people unemployed and how they were managing.
I told him that I was in one of the big food stores with my wife
the day before and when the time came for her to check out a
long string of cashiers were idle.
No one was in this big shop ... and the cashier that checked us
out told us that business had just about collapsed.
I remembered when this shop was one of the busiest spots in
the island.
"That's the condition everywhere," the member of my staff
told me. "By six o'clock nowadays the bar rooms over-the-hill are
ready to close. There's no business."
"Well, that's one way of reducing alcoholism," I said. "But
what concerns me is... how do idle men feed their families?"
"I don't know how much this has cut down on alcoholism," he
laughed. "Now the fat cats are swilling the boose. One grand lady
must have champagne with her breakfast every morning."
I don't know how true this statement was but it appears that
hungry people are now painfully aware of the leeherouspresencqy
of the fat cats.

My daughter was having some work done on her house
recently.
"Daddy," she told me, "you can get good workmen these days.
A lot of first class men are available. You don't have to put up
with poor workmanship any more."
When I went to her house I immediately recognized the two
men. They had both worked on the construction of this house
about 15 years ago. One of them had been the superintendent on
the job. Now he is taking any kind of work he can get.
Later my wife had him doing a few small things at our house.
"I haven't had a real job for a long time," he told me.
"How do you manage?", I asked him.
"Live on savings," he said.
"How long will that last?", I asked.
"It's just about all gone now," he said.
"Then what will you do?", I asked.
"I don't know," he said, "I just live from day to day and hope
for the best."
"Is there really much suffering among the people?", I asked.
"Yes, there is," he said. "One of them came to my house
crying last night. I only laughed and reminded him that this was
what he wanted."
From that remark I concluded that he did not support the
present government.

I wrote a story recently about Arnold J. Bain, a taxi driver at
Paradise Island whose courtesy and intelligence had earned high
raise from a couple of tourists in a hotel at Grand Cayman. He
ad driven them some months earlier during a visit to Paradise
Island.
He mentioned the names of four hotels where he had worked
as a waiter and bar tender before he became a taxi driver. And I
became painfully aware that three of these hotels had closed
down.
One of these hotels was the Fort Montagu Beach Hotel, one of
the island's major tourist hotels that had been a profitable
operation in former years.
The owners of the Montagu are trying to sell it.


A group of buyers were interested. They came here and serious
negotiations were in progress.
Then The Tribune announced that the negotiations had broken
off suddenly and the potential buyers had left the island without
any explanation.
I don't think you have to go far to find an explanation. The
Tribune story revealed that these were South Africans.
Either these monied visitors discovered that South Africans are
not welcomed in this island by the government ... or they were
told by the government that they were not wanted here.
Yes, of course, this is the work of the fat cats.
You know what I mean ... "full belly dunno what empty belly
feel like."
Fat cats!
You know something ... that's an apt description for these men
who have so quickly forgotten what It was to be out In the
wilderness struggling for a foothold on the ladder of life.
And I thought of the tragic case of Queen Marie Antoinette of
France who asked what the mobs of Paris were rioting about just
before the full fury of the French Revolution struck the city of
Paris ... swept across the palace ... and the neck of this proud
queen ended on the guillotine.
"They want bread Your Majesty," a courtier replied to her
question.
"If they have no bread, why not give them cake?", she asked
innocently.
This woman was so far removed from the sufferings of the
poor people of the nation that she could not understand that
they had no bread ... and, surely if they had no bread, they must
not have cake!
It's not safe to be a fat cat when people are hungry ... it is

There is a deepening despair malady which is fearfully akin

reckless behaviour to advertise the fact by ostentatious
showmanship.

A bank is making ten million dollars available for low-cost
housing.
The cost of these houses is to be $20,000, plus interest, over a
long period of time.
The government broadcasts this news as evidence of the
confidence this bank has in the future of the country.
Several attempts have been made by the government to get a
low-cost housing scheme going. The skeletons of uncompleted
houses in one development stand as a monument to the failure of
just about everything this government has attempted.
I don't know where ... in these uncertain times ... people will
be found to enter into a long term $20,000 contract for a house.
The major problem today is no longer housing ... it is food for
the people.
And, as I will point out in this column on Monday, even people
who would like to help relieve the food situation by cultivating
their properties can do nothing about it because of the
government's immigration policy.
Mr. Pindling says, of course, that there are ten thousand jobs in
the country that Bahamians won't take.
That doesn't help a man who is prepared to cultivate his land
... if the people won't take farming jobs. Then the land lies idle
and people are obliged to pay high prices for imported food.
Scarce money, food shortages, and high prices ... that's the
ghost that will haunt the lives of our people in the coming days.

The people were encouraged to look for white collar jobs ...
and they also liked to work at construction which provided well
paid jobs even for poor workmanship. Now there is no
construction. Only the best men can find an occasional job.
It's been a long time since a new hotel has been built in this
island. The last one was the Sonesta Beach on CableBeach. This
hotel has lost millions of dollars in a short time.
The other day a friend drove me out to Coral Harbour which
has closed down.
The approach to this place is through a beautiful tree-lined
driveway.
"What's that?" I asked, when the outline of a large building
suddenly appeared through the trees some distance away. "Did it
have a fire?"
The place looked gutted.
"No," he said, "that's the hotel the Carl Fisher interests were
building. It was never finished. They didn't even plaster the outer
walls to preserve the stone. Now the steel reinforcing is rusting
and the whole place is going into decay. Carl Fisher must have
lost his shirt on this one. Now the bank that owns it is being
bled."
* * * * *
I understand that Sir Harold Christie was in Germany trying to
get someone to take over Coral Harbour. He wanted to provide
employment for our people but he collapsed and died suddenly.
Sir Harold Christie worked himself into the grave trying to do
something to help save the economy and provide employment for
the people ... while the fat cats in Nassau roll around in flashy
cars, still gnawing at the remnants of the prosperous economy
that had been provided for our people through the energy,
enterprise and devotion of men like Sir Harold.

The latest blow came from Freeport.
The Holiday Inn almost closed down because of a dispute with
the labour union.
And the Monte Carlo casino in the Lucayan Beach Hotel has
closed down!
When a casino voluntarily closes down ... then you know ho"'
near disaster is for a country and its people.

I will tell you a story.
At the height of their power the U.B.P. bought The Nassau
Guardian. They made their position clear in their first editorial
after they got control of the newspaper. It was their intention to
silence and crush The Tribune which they then regarded as Public
Enemy No. 1.
Our only crime was that we were fighting for a better deal for
the people.
I must say that they tried very hard to crush The Tribune but
in the process they destroyed themselves. The Tribune still lives.
The time came when this party knew they were in trouble ...
and they came to me for help.
In spite of everything that had happened I helped them for the
good of the country. I felt that the men heading the P.L.P. did
not have the background of experience and the kind of mental
attitude needed to run the country. And it is now clear for
everyone to see that I was correct in my estimate of these men.
But even while I was helping the U.B.P. at least one of the big
bosses continued to be unfair to The Tribune.He knifed me in the
back every chance he got.
One day he came to see me at my office in the hope that he
could gloss over what he had been doing.
When he saw that he had failed his temper flared.
"You can't hurt me," he declared. "We have the power and we
can do what we like."
I was helping them at the time, despite the continued


unfairness of this man to The Tribune I don't know why he
thought I would want to hurt them. His conscience must have
hurt him.
I saw this man a few days ago. Now he is walking around like a
Zombie, hoping vainly that once more power will come his way.
I felt sorry for him.
They did the same thing to A. R. Braynen. The only difference
is that I continued to think of the welfare of the country while
Mr. Braynen allowed this clique to drag him down to their level.
I thought of this incident Tuesday night when I sat at St.
Andrew's School and saw a small power clique ... an offshoot of
the old power group ... again exercising power in an unjust
manner.
I am always concerned .',hen I see people behaving in this way
because Father Time has a frightening way of exacting retribution
for injustice.

I have written four articles on the shifting tide ot international
power. These articles will be published some time next month.

In a recent magazine article I was interested to read that
hypertension is a condition peculiar to Negroes. A medical team
is now studying the disorder to discover why it seldom affects a
white man.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Change and decay in aM around I see. LXTT


The personal prestige of
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling and the collective
moral force of the PLP have
degenerated to such a level that
the Government has no hope
of sounding a credible call for
the return of sanity in the
nation. As a matter of fact, the
PLP Government is
disintegrating right before the
sore eyes of the people and
cannot find its own direction
much less a direction for the
country.
Wednesday's display in the
House of Assembly is
symptomatic of the state of
the governing party. Only the
week before, Mr. Edmund
Moxey, the M.P. for Coconut
Grove and a Parliamentary
Secretary in the Government,
shocked the country when he
revealed in the House that
there was nQ consultation with
PLP Parliamentary Members
prior to the important policy
announcement on casino
gambling.
Now it seems that there was
little or no consultation among
Cabinet members on this
important issue. Or if there was
consultation it was in such an
atmosphere that reason had
little chance of survival.
LOW-KEY, HIGH BROW
Casino gambling has been a
fixture in this tourist resort for
iany years. Prior to the Sixties
was low-key, high-brow and
exclusive. The UBP
Government decided to allow
the expansion of casino
gambling to meet the growing
competition for the tourist
dollar and demands for
gambling facilities which were
not so exclusive.
That decision was plagued
by the scandal of consultancy
fees and the alleged
involvement of underworld
personalities in the new
operations. The whole thing
was badly handled to say the
least. Altogether it contributed
immensely to the fall of the
UBP Government in 1967.
Now the PLP Government
has taken a decision to
nationalize the casinos and a
new controversy has erupted in
the country. This is an
ill-considered policy and one
that is bound to bring further
discredit on the present
Government and on the
country. The adverse effects
will set in long before the
Government actually gets
around to taking over the
casinos, according to their
time-table in 1977.
Investor confidence, which
is already at a low level, is
bound to sink even lower.
Prospective hotel and resort


developers will take a long look
before pumping in the
hundreds of millions of dollars
which is now needed to expand
the tourist industry and to
restore the economy to


something near the growth rate
of the Sixties.
It appears that the decision
to nationalize was made
primarily by Mr. Pindling and
Deputy Prime Minister A. D.
Hanna on a take-it-or-leave-it
basis and that at least a few of
the PLP Parliamentary
Members are becoming just a
little sick of having to take it
even if they do not like it.
SLIPS FROM FAVOUR
Minister of Development
Carlton Francis, who has been
known to swing a heavy stick
has been slipping from favour
for the last few years and he
found himself without a stick
to swing in this issue.
If Mr. Francis opposed the
nationalization of the casinos
when it was discussed at
Cabinet level and if he felt so
strongly about it, then it was at
that stage he should have
resigned. Once the policy was
out, Mr. Francis was bound by
the collective responsibility of
the Cabinet.
He could not then come to
the House two weeks later on a
resolution proposed by the
Opposition and refuse to
support the Government's
position because of
unfavourable public reaction.
That would be the shabbiest
brand of opportunistic politics
and behaviour unworthy of a
Minister of any Government.
Furthermore, Mr. Hanna
suggested during the debate in
the House that Mr. Francis had
in fact agreed with the
Government's policy when it
was arrived at around the
Cabinet table! That is an
even more damning indictment


of Mr. Francis, and by a
brother Minister.
So what of the question of
conscience? The whole concept,
of the conscience vote in the
parliamentary system of
democracy deserves a separate
discussion but a brief look
would be sufficient for this
particular case.
Parliamentary democracies
depend heavily on the
discipline of their
parliamentary parties for
stability in government. The
existence of the Government
itself depends on this discipline
and a member of parliament
must have very excellent
reasons before breaking that
discipline. It must be a matter
of serious policy difference or
an acute issue of confidence.
Even so, the member who
breaks ranks is still subject to
disciplinary action and must be
prepared to pay the price
attached to such action.
CONSCIENCE VOTE
Within the context of this
system most, if not all,
parliamentary democracies,
recognize the right of each
politician, including cabinet
ministers, to vote against or to
refrain from voting on certain
measures because of deep
moral convictions. That is
described as a conscience vote
and there is no penalty
attached.
Such a vote could be taken,
for instance, on the question of
capital punishment when a
member who is opposed to
capital punishment as a matter
of principle would be allowed
to vote according to his
conscience.
The same would apply to
the question of gambling.
Those who believe that
gambling is intrinsically wrong
would be free to vote against
any proposal to establish
gambling, or for any proposal
to abolish gambling or to
abstain from voting
When a Minister of the
Government finds himself in a
position where his conscience
would be so offended he
should let that be known to his
colleagues and if there is valid
conflict his colleagues would
have no choice in fairness but
to allow him to vote or not to
vote without penalty.
Whether this happened in
the case of Mr. Francis is in
doubt. In the first place the
resolution before the House
Wednesday was not concerned
with whether casino gambling
should be established or
abolished. Both political
parties obviously believe that
casino gambling should be

United An
THE ANGLICAN MUSIC
Association and the United
Anglican Choir will present a
programme of Christmas carols
this season.
The choir will give its first
performance Sunday at The
Church of Christ the King,
beginning at 8.45 p.m.
On Sunday, December 23
they will be at Sandilands
Rehabilitation Centre at 3 p.m.
at St. Matthew's Church.
On Sunday, December 30,
the choir will perform at St.
Agnes Church starting at 8.45
p.m.
The Anglican Music
Association was formed at the
beginning of the year when the
Bishop of Nassau called a
meeting of all choir masters
and organists of Anglican
churches in New Providence.
It was at this meeting that
the Bishop introduced the idea
of forming an organization
within the Diocese for the
purpose of improving the
music of the church in general.
Because of the enthusiasm
and interest displayed by those
attending the first meeting, it
was unanimously agreed to
form an association which was
named the Anglican Music
Association.
The primary objective of the
Association was to effect an
improvement in the church's


Lglican Choir to give

concert of carols


music by encouraging and
fostering training and
development programmes for
church members with a view to
forming a united church choir,
which would embrace members
from all church parishes in
New Providence and the
Family Islands.
Selected officers of the
Association are:
Honorary President His
Lordship, Bishop, Chairman -
Mr. Percy J. Hanna,
Vice-Chairman Mr. Carl M.
Bethel, Treasurer Mr. Weston
Mortimer, Secretary Mrs.
Brenda Archer.
All rectors and
priests-in-charge of Anglican
churches were named honorary
members.
As a first step in forming the
choir, all rectors and
priests-in-charge of churches
were asked to acquaint their
congregations with the plan
and to extend invitations for
joining the choir.
The response was
encouraging and a definite
programme of activities was
formulated.
In June this year the United
Choir, assisted by Miss
Veronica Roach and the Rev F.
Fleischer, the Cathedral's

Eastern's L 1011 Whisperliner begins Nassau service on Sunda


A MILESTONE in aviation history in the Bahamas will
be achieved on Sunday, December 16, when the first
wide-bodied jetliner to enter scheduled service between the
Bahamas and the United States lands at Nassau
International Airport at 2.05 p.m., carrying Minister of
Tourism, the Honourable Clement T. Maynard and Mrs.
Maynard among its passengers.
Eastern Air Lines will introduce the Lockheed and Miami
L1011 Whisperliner on a daily basis between Nassau and
Miami beginning Sunday.
The giant $15 million aircraft is the flagship of Eastern's
modern jet fleet and can accommodate 254 passengers in its
wide cabins.
The latest of the wide-bodied aircraft, the L1011
Whisperliner features 20-foot wide cabins with recessed
overheadstorage cabinets for hand luggage and pushbutton
operated clothes closets for coats and garment bags.
The tastefully decorated cabins feature seats in rows of
eight with two extra-wide aisles so that no passenger is


more than one seat from an aisle. The extra-wide seats are
designed to allow more leg room than on most jetliners, and
can be adjusted to fit the contours of the back.
During long flights, passengers may enjoy their choice of
music from six stereophonic channels located in the arms of
their seats, with individual earphones to block out
background sounds.
Powered by three Rolls-Royce RB211 engines capable of
speeds up to 600 miles per hour, the L1011 operates with
less noise than any other jetliner in commercial service, and
because of its tremendous liftoff ability can be operated
into any types of airport.
The aircraft will leave Miami daily at 1.15pm, arriving in

wanted me it was always: 'Hey
boy!'
"One day I said to him: 'Mr
Wasey I've been here two days.
My name is Oswald.' "
In 1956, Mr. Bernard
continued, "things were tough
in this country for the black
man. I was driving a taxi then
up until five years ago.
TRIBUNE LETTER
"I wrote this newspaper
(The Tribune) condemning the
way the UBP treated the black
people and signed my name to
those letters. During that time
Mr. Pindling and Mr. Maynard
were working for the
government.
"Every time there was an
election the taxi drivers
stopped everything and carried
people to the polls. Looking
back I can say there was only
one other fellow who used to
dress up his car with more flags
and bunting than I did.
"A few months ago there
were people being robbed in
the area of the western hotels,
and as I said before, I went to
see Mr. Maynard."
Thursday evening Mr.
Bernard, who occupies a
position of responsibility with
another of these hotels, was on
the job when two men in
civilian clothes approached
him.
They never identified
themselves and he could only
surmise they were immigration
Officers from their questions
and the fact that they were
rusint a buf wiith a government
licence plate.
At the time Mr. Bernard was
about to take some packages
into the hotel. The men
wanted to know if he was a


Bahamian. When he said he was
they wanted to know if he had
a passport.
Mr. Bernard replied in the
affirmative. He then started to
take the packages inside only
to be followed.
"I told them all I was going
to do was deliver the packages
and come back out. They said
'no' and came behind me."
PROOF OF NATIONALITY
To satisfy their demand for
proof of his nationality Mr.
Bernard then had to drive to
his home on Davis Street,
Oakes Field, with the
immigration bus behind him.
"I went inside and invited
them in," he said. He then
went into the bedroom to look
for his passport and birth
certificate. He found the
passport first and sent it
outside to the living room with
his 17-year-old daughter.
As he continued looking for
his birth certificate one of the
men called out: "I am terribly
sorry Mr. Bernard, but as you
understand I am only doing a
job."
Mr. Bernard said he came
back into the living room, sat
down and told the men his life
story. They eventually left.
DON'T COME AGAIN
Mr. Bernard is Bahamian, his
wife is Bahamian and his six
children are Bahamian. He is
also resident in the Gambler
constituency represented by
Mr. Maynard.
"I would like to tell
whoever is responsible that
within a very short time I will
Shave a total of four votes in
my house, and the PLP is
never to come around my
house again.

publicity," he said, "nor am I

One night last week Clarence said he had a dream that

Clarence decided it was a message from God to get rid of
