By IVAN JOHNSON
UNSEEDED Randi Fox, 19, of Florida came close to causing
the first major upset of the $12,500 Bahamas International Open
when she narrowly lost to the No. 1 seed Maria Guzman, of
South America, 4-6, 6-4, 4-6 in yesterday's quarter finals at the
Ocean Club courts. Paradise Island.
Fox Broke serve in the 7th game to go 4-3 ahead and then
served strongly in the 8th game to 40-30.
Miss Guzman kept cool, won the next point and then fought
gallantly for the next 20 minutes before clinching the game and
pulling back to 4-4.
Playing with more confidence in the 9th game Miss Guzman
hammered a backhand drive and a cross court forehand
powerback past Fox at the net to lead 5-4.
Miss Fox failed to hold her serve in the last game as she
double-faulted at 0-30 and Miss Guzman finished off proceedings
with a superb backhand drive.
In the other ladies quarter final, Dona Ganz (1973 Orange
Bowl Champion) ranked No. 1 in Florida and No. 3 in the
tourney had little trouble in beating Mary McGean of Texas, 6-2,
6-4 and meets Miss Guzman in the semi-finals today.
Miss McClean seemed to be staging a come back in the second
set when she pulled up to 3-3 after trailing 1-3.
Miss McClean then went 4-3 ahead but the 'busy' little
Floridian broke serve in the 8th game and the 10th to win the set
6-4.
In the other half of the draw the No. 2 seed Janet has trounced
the 1972 Florida Junior Champion, Rana Epstein who had beaten
Nassau's Vicki Knowles the day before 6-3, 6-0.
Florida's Citrus Bowl Champion. Betsy Butler the No. 4 seed,
defeated Jan Weinberg the last of the Bahamian ladies left in
the tourney 6-2, 6-2 and will battle with Haas for a place in the
final today.
Leo Rolle, Nassau's No. 1 player had a disappointing match
when he lost to Norman Holmes 6-4, 6-3 in the second round.
However, young John Antonas kept Bahamian hopes alive
when he defeated veteran Ben Bogsch 6-2, 6-2 to pass safely
through to the second round.
The final of the Ladies event will be played on Sunday.
The men's singles seeds, Brian Gottfried, Clark Graebner, Ove

Obed

quick
BAHAMAS welterweight
champ Elisha Obed in a two
minute and twenty-two
seconds encounter last night
easily eliminated Puerto
Rican middleweight Saulo
Hernandez via a first round
technical knockout
successfully defending his
undefeated record in 41
fights.
Presently ranked fourth in
the British Commonwealth
and tenth in the World
ratings. Obed utilized a series
of short combination punches
to floor Hernandez within the
first minute of the first
round.
Though the 158 pound
Puerto Rican recovered
enough to punch it out with
Obed for a little over a
minute, he made the mistake
of walking into one of Obed's
stiff rights which sent him
down again.
Referee Nelson Chipman
decided Hernandez was much
too hurt and was unable to
further defend himself.
"We are going to keep on
fighting as long as Obed
wants too until we get the
title,'' commented Obed's
manager Mike Dundee.
Following the Yuletide break.
Dundee announced that Obed
will make another appearance

Dale drives on
with big lead
By GLADSTONE THURSTON
A CONSISTENT Dale
Welker controlled the reigns
again yesterday and
commanded an easy-going
three-under-par 69. taking a
three stroke lead into today's
final round of the South Ocean
International Pro-Am
tournament.
Having set the pace
Wednesday with a heavy
five-under-par 67 that smashed
South Ocean's course record,
Welker relaxed on a 72
Thursday gathering momentum
for today's finale. He yesterday
controlled the par 36 front
nine with a two under and held
the back nine to one.
And yet he is not alone.
Carrying a hot pace just three
strokes behind, Bahamas'
Donald "Nine" Rolle snatched
second place when his 71
yesterday brought him home
one stroke ahead of Lee Elder.
Making his presence felt
Wednesday with a course tying
69, Rolle yesterday put
together scores of 35 and 36
bringing his third round to
211. Thursday fc tnd him
one-under-par 71.
Though deserted by putting.
Elder Kept well contained
turning in scores of 74, 68 and
70 for a third round total of
212. Going 32 on the front and
36 on the back sixth to second
before giving way to Rolle.
Rolle however, is not
worried in the least about
Welker's command. "I made
some very good plays and I feel
very proud of myself," said the
Bahamian touring pro. "I'm
not under pressure and I'm in
good condition. It's now
Welker has to pay to win."
South Ocean's Audnel
Clarke, teaming up with
13-year-old junior Eric Gibson
Jr. headed scores of 57, 54 and
57 leading their foursome to
sole possession of first place in
the net best ball race.
In the reshuffle, Welker's
first round leading squad was
thrown into fourth place while
the foursome of Rolle's moved
up to second one stroke
behind.
Rolle's team which consists
of Bahamas' Hoerman Cup
player Basil Smith, Freeport's
Preston Stuart and another
junior Michael Rolle turned in
scores of 25 and 30 yesterday
for their second place total of
169.
Each pro headed a team of
three amateurs.
Sonesta Beach's Charles
Saunders along with Pepi
Terilli, W Palmer and H.
Bratwaith hang tightly in third
place three strokes out of first,
with a total of 171. Saunder's
74 yesterday gave him a 220
total for fourth place in the
gross division.
Yesterday was the best of all
three days for Welker. His
putts were dropping which
kept him in there. "This is a
thinking man's golf course and
I didn't make any mental
mistakes." said the Florida

-FAWKES ENTERS BATTLE-
MR RANDOI. FAWKES today became the sixth person
to announce his candidature in the St. Barnabas January 18
by-election.
He said he had received the "unanimous endorsement"
of the Cormnonwealth Labour Party yesterday, and had
been encouraged iy the tremendous support and
encouragement he has received.
Mr. Fawkes. who served in the Hlouse for 16 years, was
ousted last year by the PLP's Sinclair Outten.
Mr. Outten's life in the House was short-lived however,
when the discovery was made he was not Bahamian-born.
The resulting furor may well have an upsetting effect on
the PLP position in St. Barnabas. Mr. Outten's
re-nomination has not sat well with at least two of the
'.,~ y'..-alwaits, wlh'-"-iave deci&,1 to it. independently.
Both Mr. Wenfred "Sife" Heastie and Mr. Clyde Gardiner
have been highly critical of the PLP's decision to run Mr.
Outten again over a native son.
Although Mr. Fawkes is offering himself as the
Commonwealth Labour Party's candidate, and has stood
for labour throughout his political career, it is Mr. Dudley
Williams who has been publicly endorsed as the unions'
choice to carry the labour banner in St. Barnabas.
The sixth candidate is Sen. Arthur Foulkes, who is the
standard-bearer for the Opposition Free National
Movement
The entry of so many contestants, all of whom have
more than a fighting chance, holds a significance for the
government and tor the country far beyond the confines of
St. Barnabas.
Should the PLP lose the election, it would be a
demoralizing blow heralding the possible disintegration of
the government.
As it now stands, it would appear that Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling is having a difficult time keeping his
backbenchers in line. Loss of St. Banabas may make it even
more difficult to control an already restless legislature.


Gambling
IHE EXECUTIVE of the
Bahamas Christian Council met
today with Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling to make clear
its position on the issue of
casino gambling.
The Council expects to
make a public statement
shortly, Council president Dr.
R.E. Cooper said today.
The question of the casinos
erupted two weeks ago when
the government revealed that
"as a mater of policy," it
proposed to assume ownership
and management of the casinos
when the present licences
expired.
The ensuing debate in the
House led to the resignation of


Cocaine in Nassau


LARGE AMOUNTS of the
illegal drug cocaine have been
passing through Nassau on the
way to a Miami man who
Miami police have described as
"Florida's major black drug
supplier."
The alleged drug supplier,
James Dowling, 45, was
arrested in Miami on December
2, the Miami Herald reported.
Miami police told the Herald
that Dowling "operated by
buying 80 percent pure cocaine
for $18,000 a kilogram (2.2
pounds) in Nassau, and then
paying another $1,000 to a
'mule' ( a woman who flies to


IMPORTED
MIRRORS


liY IANN Fi11UI
NASSAU-FREEPORT


Miami with the cocaine
secreted on her body)."
Police told the Herald they
had traced the cocaine from its
South American source
through Kingston, Jamaica
and Nassau. Bahamas to Miami.
The Herald reported that
Dowling had been under
surveillance since September,
and was arrested on December
2 "even though he was
awaiting a new shipment,
because other arrests had been
made by federal agents in
South America and the
Bahamas."
American authorities have
no power of arrest in the
Bahamas, and Assistant
Commissioner of Police
(Crime) John Crawley told The
Tribune he knew nothing of
the reported arrests.
A number of other persons
involved in Dowling's alleged
Florida drug ring was arrested
in Miami on Dec 2 the Herald


E)Ut


on Friday, January 18.
Saturday Mr. Fawkes
produced a tape of his
September 18, 1972 election
broadcast which clearly names
Mr. Outten as a Turks Islander.
The broadcast, made
according to Mr. Fawkes on
the eve of the general election,
was the last of the political
radio addresses by candidates.
He announced Saturday that
he would make a formal
request to the Attorney
General today to have
proceedings instituted for the
recovery of all the money
which he alleges has been
wrongfully paid Mr. Outten
since September 19, 1972.
"Earlier this year I wrote
you and the Solicitor General
concerning Mr. Sinclair
Outten's nationality," Mr.
Fawkes' letter today said "I
also informed you of a taped
recording of a speech I made
over Station Z.N S on the 18th
September, 1972,
challenging Mr. Outten's
qualifications to stand as a
candidate in last year's
elections."
Mr. Fawkes' letter points
out that Mr. Outten has, since
then, resigned his seat in the
House. He alleges however that
the former representative failed
to repay the money he received
as a Member of Parliament and
as a parliamentary secretary.
"As the people have a clear
claim of right to this I am
asking you to institute
proceedings against Mr. Outten
immediately for the recovery
of the full amount," Mr.
Fawkes states.
And in an obvious reference
to Mr. Outten's status, he has
asked the Attorney General to
"please write and say that the
same law that governs
Bahamians applies to Mr.
Outten."
The letter is signed by Mr.
Fawkes as Leader of the
Commonwealth Labour Party
and was hand delivered to the
Attorney General's office.


Development Minister Carlton
Francis who opposed the
continuation of gambling not
only as a matter of
"conscience" but as unsuited
to a developing nation.
There are also indications
that other PLP members who
spoke out against gambling
may be threatened with
discipline for breaking the
party line.
The intensity of last week's
House debate was strongly
indicative of the disagreements
that now exist among the
various government factions.
The Tribune understands
that since his resignation Mr.
Francis has met with various


Baptist ministers individually.
They have endorsed the stand
he took in the House and
praised him for his "moral
courage" in speaking out as he
did.
It was ten years ago that
casino gambling first emerged
as a major political issue. At
that time the United Bahamian
Party government granted the
first Certificate of Exemption
as an experimentnt"
Four years after its
introduction, the heat of
public sentiment had toppled
government, brought
villification on the heads of
some of the country's leading
citizens, prompted an
unprecedented flow of
journalistic writing about
conditions in these islands and
produced a Commission of
Inquiry.
Since early 1966 the then
Opposition PLP, and before
that the Bahamas Christian
Council, had repeatedly
warned of the infiltration of
underworld elements into the
casino operations at Freeport.
The agitation of the
Opposition, aided by dozens of
articles in the foreign press,
eventually made gambling an
issue which the UBP
government, politically, could
no longer afford to ignore.
In 1967 casion gambling
cost the UBP the government.
It would be ironic if the PLP
government should fall on the
same issue.

GOVERNMENT has no
intention of completing either
of the extensions to the
Princess Margaret Hospital
during 1974, if the C'apital
Development estimates are to
be taken at face value.
Many of the figures shown
in the 1974 budget's
development estimates under
the Ministry of Health head
can best be described as
"curious."

Of principal interest,
however, are the allocations
shown in the development
estimates for the main
extension, on the western side
of the hospital compound, and
the Eye Wing extension, on the
opposite side of the grounds.


Williams

reveals

election

platform
THE CONSTITUTION
should be changed to
eliminate executive control of
the law-making process,
unionist Dudley Williams
advocates.
Mr. Williams on Saturday
revealed his platform for the
January 18 St. Barnabas
by-election.
A major plank was
constitutional amendment to
reflect "anti-totalitarian
positions, buttressed by a
strengthening of the
democratic process.'"
Mr. Williams, contesting
the by-election under the
.patronage ,of several major
trade unions, said he would
like to see senators elected,
rather than appointed, and
given considerably more
power to review laws passed
by the House of Assembly.
Further, he would like to
have the Cabinet "taken out
of the House." He charged
that under the existing
system, the executive branch
of Govern ment as represented
by the Cabinet exercised too
much influence over the
actions of the legislature.
He said Cabinet Ministers
should be drawn not from the
House membership, but from
whatever sources provided
the best executive material.
Mr. Williams also wants a
"full-employment, high-wage
economy," equitable price
control, and a strong policy
of friendship with the U.S.
(including the promotion of
good relations with the black
minority in the U.S.)
The unionist said he also
advocates Bahamianisation,
but tempered with
acceptance of the need for
expatriates in certain areas

According to the budget, $3
million is to be spent on the
main extension next year but,
also according to the budget,
Government expects to have
$3.8 million worth of work
still to be done on the project
When the year is ended.
.1 CURIOSITIES

The budget shows no
allocation whatever during
1974 for the Eye Wing
extension, although when the
cOnstruction contract was
signed with Guarantee Builders
in October, Works Minister
Simeon Bowe said completion
was scheduled for September,
1974.
Other curiosities under the
Ministry of Health head in the
development estimates:


When Health Minister A.
Loftus Roker announced the
main extension in 1972 he gave
the estimated cost as $6.45
million. The 1973 budget,
however, set the figure at $7
million, and the 1974 budget
shows another revision, to $7.5
million.
e The 1973 budget reported
that at the end of 1972 an
estimated $700,000 had
already been spent on the main
PMH extension, and that a
further $ 1.6 million was to be
spent during 1973. But the
1974 budget discloses that at
the end of 1973 only an
estimated $649,456 will have
been spent on the project.

E When the contract for the
Eye Wing extension was signed
earlier this year, Mr. Bowe said


-Four tie for

FOUR persons have tied for a trip to any
one of 21 European cities served by Pan
American Airways. This trip was offered as a

Contest.
The four entrants got a perfect score of 30
correct answers, with 31 entrants making 29
points.
The name of the four persons will be
announced on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 22,
and a run-off to break the tie will be held at
The Tribune office early in the New Year.
During the run-off no reference books or
aids of any kind will be permitted and the
decision of the judges will be final.
When the contest opened on August 25 Pan
American Airways offered a prize of a


its estimated cost was
$378,000. But the 1974
budget places the cost at
$458,00, and only $35,000 is
expected to have been spent on
the project by the end of 1973.
As reported above, no funds
have been ear-marked for the
project during 1974.
Development projects
appearing under the Health
head for the first time in the
1974 budget are a transport
vehicle shed ($15,000), clinics
at Sweetings Cay, Grand
Bahama ($15,000), Cargill
Creek and Behring Point,
Andros ($20,000) and
Delectable Bay, Acklins
($25,000), and renovation of
the Cafe Royal in the grounds
of the Royal Victoria Hotel
($20,000). But the only one of
those projects showing a
budget allocation for 1974 is


dream trip-1

round-trip for two to any one of 26 European
cities. Since,then, however, Pan Am has had to
eliminate or curtail many of its services
because of the international fuel crisis, which
has severely reduced its allotment of aviation
fuel.
If Pan Am gets Civil Aeronautics Board
approval five cities originally offered in the
competition will be affected. They are
Belgrade, Glasgow, Oslo, Shannon and
Stockholm.
The remaining cities in the competition are:
Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels,
Copenhagen, Dusseldorf, Frankfort, Hamburg,
Hanover, Lisbon, London, Madrid, Munich,
Nice, Nuremberg, Paris, Prague, Rome,
Stuttgart, Vienna and Warsaw.


YOUNG MOTHER ACCUSED


OF ABANDONING CHILD


*A 20-YEAR-OLD Deveaux
Street mother, accused of
abandoning an 18-month-old
child between July 1 and
November 13 was cautioned
when she pleaded guilty to
charges in a lower court
Monday.
Linda Roberts, who police
say had left Nassau for over
five months before being
located at Freeport, was
ordered to pay $10 weekly to
the Ministry of Labour and
National Insurance for
maintaining the child.
Failure to do so would result
in her being imprisoned,
Magistrate Emmanuel
Osadebay told the young
mother.


Chief Insp. Okell Cartwright
told the court this morning
that the matter had been
referred to the Family Child
Care Department by the
Sandilands Rehabilitation
Centre, where the child's
grandmother was being treated.

After the grandmother had
been admitted to hospital,
efforts were made to contact
Roberts, but there was no
response the officer said.
The child was later placed in
custody of the Ministry of
Labour and the matter
reported to police who located
Roberts, Insp. Cartwright said.
Roberts had left the child
with her mother whom she


knew to be ill, mentally, ptoce
said.
A Ministry of Labour officer
told the court this morning
that the grandmother "is not
well, she has no stable means
of support. Although the child
has aunts none came forward
to inquire about him. He is
presently in a temporary foster
home," she said.
Roberts, who had earlier
pleaded not guilty to charges,
changed her plea during her
appearance this morning.
Magistrate Osadebay told
the mother that her caution
was given only in the interests
of the child. He ordered her to
make the payments each week
with a $40 installment to be
paid by 4 p.m. today.

Sides meet in hotel dispute


THE GRAND BAHAMA
branch of the Hotel and
Catering Workers' Union and
management of Freeport's
Holiday Inn were meeting for
the first time today in an effort
to resolve the contract dispute
which last week sparked a
management threat to close the
614-room establishment.
The negotiation session
began at 10 am, at the Labour
Ministry's Freeport offices.
The branch union, headed
by chairman Hurie Bodie, won
recognition as bargaining agent
for the hotel's 400 employees
earlier this year.

The union submitted its
proposals for a work contract
to management on October 25,
and management handed over
its counter-proposals, with no
reference to proposed wage
scales, on November 14.
It was not until December 9,
under pressure from Labour
Minister Clifford L. Darling,


wage proposals, and according
to the Minister, the proposal
was accompanied by a demand
that it be accepted
"completely and totally" by
December 10, or "they would
close the hotel," the same day.
The hotel's closure threat
drew a vitriolic attack from the
Minister in a nation-wide radio
broadcast on the night of Dec.
10.
The Minister alleged that the
closure would violate both the
Industrial Relations Act and
"all sense of fairplay, of justice
and of reason."
Holiday Inn general manager
Ray Martz subsequently denied
there had been any threat to
close the hotel.

Mr. Bodie suppo-ted Mr.
Martz statement to the extent
that he said the hotel set no
date for closing, but the
unionist declared that he was
told the union must accept the


changes, or
closed.


the hotel would be


GOOD PROGRESS
DESPITE the troublesome
beginnings, negotiators for the
Hotel and Catering Workers'
Union and the Hotel
Employers' Association are
apparently making good
progress in their talks on a new
contract to replace the one
that expires on January 6.
The negotiators met five
days last week, and five days of
talks, beginning tomorrow, are
scheduled again this week,
sources said.
The negotiations got off to a
bad start in November with the
workers staging one three-hour
strike against eight major
hotels over a dispute which
arose through correspondence,
without a single meeting.

The two sides got to the
nam it isfi tabli nnill aftmi the


the Delectable Bay clinic,
which apparently is to be built
before the end of 1974.
Work on the main extension
at the hospital was long
delayed in getting underway,
and the project has, from the
start been an on-again,
off-again affair.
Several months ago
workmen completed the steel
skeleton of the three-storey,
96,000-square-foot building.
and virtually nothing has been
done on the site since. The
Ministry has given no
explanation of the delay.
Work on the Eye Wing
extension began shortly after
the contract was signed in late
October, and the steel skeleton
is now almost complete and
if the budget is any indication
that is where work will be
halted.


It's only

a paper

deficit,

says

Ministry
THE $15.2 MILLION deficit
which the budget indicates will
exist at the end of 1974 is iilyv
a "paper deficit" Finance
Ministry Officials said.
In an interview arranged
earlier to answer questions,, t
the Government's finaitial
expectations for next N.:ai,
Financial Secretary Reginald
Wood and an Internatinal
Monetary Fund advisui. ,liin
Bates, agreed that the budget
reflected a deficit. hut theic
said it was a result it
accounting procedures and
stressed that Governmen' Ic,,s
not now and is not expected :n
the end of 1974 to owe :r.\
money for its operating c ts.
They said the only trinc
deficit recorded in recent i .:rs
was one of over $7 million in
1971, and that, they said, \a',
wiped out by the surpluses it
earlier years.
The apparent deficits ii
1970 and '72, and also the
apparently increasing deficits
of 1973 and 1974. they said.
were the result of funds bi. g
diverted from the Recurrent
Account to Capital Account
They said the money froin
the Recurrent Account that
has and is being spent on
capital development result in
"paper deficit" in Recurrent
Account only because there is
no means of reflecting Capit',!
income such as Ireasiury
Bills in the Recurrent section
of the Budget.
The officials said the
apparent deficit carry-ovcr
from previous years would
have been deleted from the
1974 Budget, but it \vas
thought that the sudden
disappearance would have
made a number of perstios
extremely suspicious.
In all of the years 1970-74
except '71 the spokesman
said, Government income ii:
fact exceeded necessary
expenditure on recurrent
operating costs, but nmuich ot
the surplus has been
transferred to help finance
capital development, resulting
in apparent deficits on the
recurrent accounts for each
year. _

LONDON Britons went
on a buyint',pree at the
weekend an all-out splurge
before facing up to the labour
unrest and energy crisis that
threaten to make this
Christmas the gloomiest since
World War II.
"We're short of oil, short of
electricity, short of coal and
short of trains. But I can assure
you that the public is not short
of money," said an executive
at one of London's busiest
department stores in Oxford
Street.
Liberty's, a high-class store
in Regent Street, was jammed,


like most other establishments
in the West End.
"People are buying the
expensive things," a spokesman
said. "It's quite amazing. They
say they're afraid that the
pound will devalue so they're
shedding sterling like confetti.
Someone just came in and
bought an oriental carpet for
$12,000.

In another store, a well
dressed lady purchased two
dozen flashlights, explaining
she wanted them for guests
who might be caught in a
power blackout after attending


her dinner party.
Roads into shopping centres
in other cities around the
country were flooded with
automobiles.
"There are queues of cars
going round in ever-decreasing
circles with nowhere to park,"

30 die in


airport


shoot-out

ROME Palestinian
commandos shot their way
through a passenger-packed
transit lounge at Rome airport
today, threw two incendiary
bombs into a Pan American
jetliner and then hijacked a
German plane with hostages.
Police said 30 people or
more may have been killed.
Dozens were injured.
Thousands ran in panic as
the terrorists sprayed bullets
around them. People fell to the
ground.
"I saw a man sprayed
with bullets crawling on the
floor" said Giorgio Fernetti,
an airport employee.
The Lufthansa jetliner
carrying four commandos and
11 hostages later landed at
Athens airport, police
reported.
The attack began about
1240 (1140gmt). The
departure wing of Rome's
Leonardo Da Vinci airport was
jammed with passengers
awaiting to board flights.
The Palestinians walked
through the lounge to the
baggage control point where
they were asked to open their
luggage for a routine security
check.
They did and took out
submachine guns, pistols and
hand grenades. They then
grabbed seven policemen at the
security point, sprayed the area
around them with their
submachine guns and went
down a ramp to the tarmac.
Thousands fled in and out of
planes and around the airport
as police ordered all evacuated.
"I was about to board a jet
to return home when we saw
people running," Robert A.
Suits, travel editor of the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat, said.
"Someone said there must

BIG JET


be a big movie star coming.
Then, two young ladies
shouted "it's a bomb, it's a
bomb" and we all ran for
shelter."
"I saw the guerrillas
shooting all around," said
Spartaco Cimedia, an airport
worker. He helped injured men
who came out of the PanAm
plane. He told me a terrorist
had fired at him virtually point
blank."
Police at Rome's Saint
Eugenio Hospital said six of
the injured, including four
Americans and an Arab
woman, were taken there.
They said one of the injured
died shortly after arrival.
In Athens, the hija,-kers
demanded the release of two
Palestinians held by the
Greek-Government.
The two Arabs held in Greek
prisons are El Arid Shafik, 22,
and Khantouran Palaal, 21,
both Palestinians born in
Jordan. They were arrested
Aug. 5 after they killed four
and injured 55 in a gun and
bomb attack at Athens airport.
A hijacking plan which they
had prepared had misfired.
The two men were officially
charged with premediated
manslaughter by an Athens
court August 7, while crowds
outside had chanted "Lynch
them, lynch them." The two
have not yet been tried.
On previous occasions the


Greek government has refused
to bow to the demands of Arab
terrorists. This is the fourth
time in two years that
incidents with Arab
commandos have taken place
on Greek soil.
The latest incident came
only two days after a decree
provided for ten months extra
pay be given to any police
officer involved in the effort to
put down hijacking incidents.
Before the jet landed it
requested "urgent preparations
for an emergency landing," at
Beirut international airport,
airport sources said.
The informants said the
pilot of the Boeing 737
reported the plane had a
"damaged door" which forced
him to fly at an altitude of
13,000 feet over the
Mediterranean. (AP)

says

Getty

ROME J. Paul Getty III
told his mother kidnappers
tried to knock him out before
cutting off his ear but he
remained conscious and felt
the whole operation.
Doctors said the mother
has suffered a "nervous
collapse."
"They hit me on the head
to knock me out but I felt
everything. It was terrible.
But I will not get a plastic ear
made. I don't want to forget
this moment of my life," II
Messaggero, a Rome paper,
quoted him as saying.
Getty's mother, former
actress Gail Harris, had
remained constantly at her
son's side in a Rome clinic
since he was found Saturday
in a remote corner of
southern Italy. ,
The family reportedly paid
$2.7 million ransom to
kidnappers.
Getty, 17, grandson of the
American oil magnate J. Paul
Getty, disappeared five
months ago from the Rome
hippie hangouts he
frequented.
Doctors said Paul, whose
right ear had been reported
cut off during his captivity
and sent to a Rome
newspaper as proof the
abduction was authentic, was
in good health but very weak.
Hospital officials allowed
only Miss Harris to visit him
except for three friends
whom he asked to see.
Not even the police have
been able to question the
boy. After his recovery
Saturday they found him too
upset and weak to say
anything.
"Every time we started
talking of the kidnapping he
would burst into tears," said
Fernando Masone, head of
Rome's mobile squad. (AP)


Kissinger in the rain


JERUSALEM U.S. Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger renewed his talks with Israeli
leaders today after a midnight meeting of the
Israeli government to discuss his visit.
After an early morning meeting with
Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, Kissinger
drove from his hotel through a chilling rain to
Premier Golda Meir's five-storey office
building for another session with Mrs. Meir.
Deputy Premier Yipil Allon accompanied
Kissinger in the secretary's limousine.
Kissinger said late yesterday that his initial
6%'-hour meetings with top Israeli officials
"were very friendly, very warm, very
constructive," and added he was optimistic
about clearing the way for a Mideast peace
I


conference in Geneva.
Shortly after Kissinger arrived at Mrs. Meir's
office today, a half dozen mothers of Israeli
war prisoners held in Syria gathered outside
the building. They were denied entrance.
"It's as difficult to see Golda as it is to get
our sons back," one woman told a reporter.
Reports from Damascus and from
Kissinger's aides say the secretary returned
from the Syrian capital without a hoped-for
list of an estimated 120 Israeli POWS. Israel
says the list is a prerequiste for an
Israeli-Syrian meeting at Geneva.
Israel's rabbis declared a day of prayer
today for Jews throughout the world to pray
for the success of the Geneva conference.

Energy chief


praises U.S.


WASHINGTON Federal
energy chief William E. Simon
praised the public's response to
the administration's energy
programmes but said that
Americans must change their
wasteful ways,-
Simon, head of the Federal
Energy Office, said the energy
shortage would not end with a
resumption of oil shipments
from Arab nations. The
shipments were cut off to
protest United States support
for Israel.
He said his biggest job is
convincing the public that the
crisis was real not an
exaggeration manufactured by
the government and oil
companies and that it would
continue.
"We have been on a collision
course in energy requirements
and demands for many years,"
he said. "In 1970 production
peaked but ... energy needs will


double between 1973 and
1990."
Praising cooperation
throughout the United States,
Simon said:
"I have found a response on
the part of the American
people to the problems that we
have that has really in my mind
been predictable. The
American people meet
problems in a typically
patriotic way. 1 think they
have been doing a great deal.,
"We can continue with a
lifestyle we are accustomed to,
but we will have to change our
wasteful ways," he said on the
CBS television and radio
programme "Face the Nation."
He said self-sufficiency,
based on expanded power
supplies from coal and nuclear
resources, among other fuels,
could be achieved in the next
decade.


Rockefeller: I don't

have the facts


NEW YORK Gov. Nelson
A. Rockefeller said Sunday it
was up to Congress to
determine whether the
Watergate disclosures make
President Nixon unfit to hold
office.
He declined to give any
personal opinion, saying "I
don't have the facts."
'The degree to which this
man should be judged is a
delicate thing," he said on
NBC's Meet the Press
monitored here..
"Congress has got to
determine whether the things
you've been talking about
(Watergate) unfit him."
At another point in the
questioning, Rockefeller, who
retires as Governor of New
York tomorrow in what many
political observers consider a
start towards campaigning for
the 1976 Republican
presidential nomination, said:
"They've got to decide
whether he should be
impeached."
The question Congress must
answer, Rockefeller said, is
"was he responsible or was he
not and if he was, was he
responsible in such a way as to
be disqualified from office?"
The governor, who opposed
Nixon for the Republican
nomination in 1968, criticized
the president for not telling a


meeting of Republican
governors Nov. 20 that 18
minutes of a key White House
tape had been erased.
Instead, Nixon told (he,
governors not to expect any!
sensational new disclosures just
a few days before news of the
erasure became public.
"He was on a mission of
candor however it's called."
Rockefeller said. '"That would
have been a convenient thing
to have included."
The governor commented
"the tragedy for me and the
rest of the country is we don't
know if all the disclosures have
'been made."

Friends in many places


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
1 HAVE friends in many places. An extraordinary fact is that
some of my most ardent friends are people I have never seen.
They have grown to know me through reading this column in The
Tribune. As you know, I have received many honours and
international recognition in some of the most important fields of
human enterprise. ALL of this has come from abroad ... in many
cases from people I have never met. They have judged me entirely
on the thoughts I express in this column.

Early last year I received a letter from a man in Jacksonville
whose name I will not reveal at this time. Suffice it to say that he
is the chairman of the Board of one of the largest food store
chains in the U.S.
** ** * * .
"I'm still reading your very thoughtful editorials and I have a
little grits for your mill," he wrote in a letter dated October 4,
1973.
"Back in 1967, I attended a cocktail party in Washington and
met two brothers who told me they were writing a book about
the food business. I came home and ordered the book, and when
it came later that year, I started reading it. I gave up about one
third of the way through it. feeling that it was impossible.
"On my last visit to the Bahamas, I took the book with me and
read it in the light of the disappearance of grain surpluses in the
United States, Canada and Australia. I found that the men's
projections were on schedule except that the surplus disappeared
in 1973 instead of 1974.
"You will see that their premise calls for the United States to
decide which countries will starve to death in 1975.
"I have sent copies of this book to the Prime Minister and also
to Carlton Francis because out of the almost 80 scholarships
which the Bahamas Supermarkets Foundation has granted the
Bahamas, not one student is taking agriculture.
"The fact that the Bahamas imports almost all its food
requirements is a very dangerous situation.
"You can draw conclusions much better than I can, so I am
mailing a copy of the book to you which I believe will stimulate
much thinking.
"A strange thought hits me. The Montfort Packing Company in
Greeley, Colorado, has a steer feed lot continuously feeding
200,000 steers. They have a mountain of unwanted cow manure.
Wouldn't it be great in a five or six-inch layer on Abaco or
Eleuthera?*,
This friend is an ardent reader of my column. He says in his
letter that he visits Nassau but I can't recall having met him.


"I believe I wrote you a few months ago and told you that I
enjoyed reading your editorials which I continue to do," he wrote
in another letter dated April 4, 1973. "I am astonished at the
amount of good material that you can develop on a daily basis.
"I recently made a talk at the Pre-Alumni gathering in Miami
of the United Negro College Fund. I altered the talk somewhat
and made it again at the Student Assembly of the Annual Meeting
of the Board of Trustees at Bethune-Cookman College.
"I am attaching a copy of the talk I made at Daytona Beach
and the principal reason for sending it to you is that I mentioned
your philosophy in this talk.
"I have been reading your editorials long enough to feel you
will agree with most of the statements I made here ... I hope you
will enjoy reading my talk."
I thought it was an excellent speech.
I publish both these letters to show that, although two people
may never meet, there is a meeting of minds across great
distances that makes friends of "strangers".

Getting back to his letter on the danger of famine overtaking a
large portion of the world ... and especially the Bahamas ... in
1975 or earlier.
It is already here. Not only are serious shortages already being
experienced in the world but prices are out of the reach of the
poor man's pocket. In the Bahamas this condition has been
gravely aggravated by a serious unemployment situation caused
by destructive policies of the P.L.P. government.
I was in one of the big food shops in Nassau with my wife on
Thursday.
"Pick your choice," I told her when she was ready to check
out.
Every cashier was idle. She was the only person in the shop
checking out.
I questioned one of the cashiers. She said that it had been that
way all day. "Business has just disappeared," she said. "We hope
it will pick up for Christmas."
It is really strange how things happen in my life.
The book predicting world famine in 1975 came a day before
my wife and I started to travel and so I have only been able to
skim over it so far.
The important fact is that the people of the Bahamas need to
get back to their farms as socn as possible.
A friend of mine in Long Island visited me in Coral Gables a
few months ago. She told me then that there was no work at
Long Island and the people had already gone back to their farms
because they realized that the days of prosperity for the Bahamas
were finished and that the people face the seven years famine as
recorded in the Old Testament.
Just about the time I received this book my daughter. Mrs.
Carron, told me on the phone one day of a letter she had received
from a man for whom she knows I entertain a high regard.
This man is an Out Island farmer who made his home in Nassau
some years ago. He was a man of foresight who made provision
for his old age ... at least he thought so.
But this man crossed the P.L.P. government. As a result he has
been so completely crushed that what he felt would take care of
hm in his old age has been wiped away.
He wrote to ask my daughter whether there was any place ...
anything he said ... he could fill in The Tribune. He asked her to
tell me about his request.

Until a few years ago we set aside each year a substantial su'im
of money for charities. This money was used to help students
during the summer, for scholarships and to take care of
emergency cases of this kind.
But we too have come under government pressure ... plus new
taxes ... plus a great Increase in the cost of materials. And so this
item has not only been completely wiped out but my daughter is
now looking around for further economies to cover the
government's insurance scheme and the sixteen percent added to
the cost of electricity supplies.
Under these conditions ... thanks to a harsh and inefficient
government ... The Tribune must now be just cold-blooded
business.
"I know you would want me to help this man," Mrs. Carron
said, "but there isn't a thing I can do for him in The Tribune at a
time when we may be obliged to further reduce staff. The only
thing I can think of is our farm at Camperdown. I think we
should reactivate It."
I then told her about the letter and book I had received from
my friend in Jacksonville.
"I think it's a wonderful idea," I said. "Have a talk with my
friend while your mother and I are in England. Instead of waiting
until Christmas to come home I will come as soon as the press
conference ends in Antigua. I will try to set it up before I return


At our farm at Camperdown during the last war we produced
all the food for our family ... and a lot for our friends. We
produced beef, veal, mutton, pork, poultry, rabbit, game, fruit,
vegetables, milk, butter, cottage cheese, honey ... and we caught
fish on a reef off our waterfront property. We didn't need to buy
anything from the shops. In addition, we supplied shops with the
surplus from our farm. This carried our costs.
I tried to interest other people in doing this form of domestic
farming but the late Stanley Lowe was then publishing The
Herald and he told the people that I wanted to tie them to the
land. He made them feel that farming was a degrading
occupation. My wife and I and all our children put in all our
spare time working in the farm and so I wasn't urging the people
to do anything we were not ourselves doing.
But the people were making a lot of money out of the war ...
and food was plentiful. So they cou!d afford to be foolish.
Today the situation is different. Prices are sky high, money is
scarce, and already there are serious shortages in supply. Very
soon many articles of food will not be obtainable at any price.
And so this is an important and an urgent matter in which I
would like to help the country.

Because Arthur Hanna refused to allow us to have even one
Haitian to maintain our farm we were obliged to let it go to ruin.
More than half the fruit trees have died from neglect.
"You know, daddy," my daughter reminded me, "it will cost a
lot to restore the fannrm."
"I know," I told her, "but it is important and we must try to
do it for the good of the country, whatever the cost."
But when I came home she told me that our friend is too ill to
undertake such an operation. And so all our good intentions have
gone for naught.
Although Mr. Pindling himself says that Bahamians will no
longer do farm labour it would be a waste of time and effort for
me to approach government with a view to obtaining the kind of
labour we need for this work ...
So ... to hell with it!


As I have so often said ... a people get the kind of government
they deserve.
But I have a tiny bit of advice to give labour unions.
Be careful lest, in your search for power, you don't destroy the
little bit that the government hasn't already destroyed.

Another long range friend I made through this column is Earl
E. T. Smith, Mayor of Palm Beach and an active member of the
New York Stock Exchange.
Mr. Smith was American Ambassador to Cuba at the time of
the Castro take over in that island. Hlie warned Washington of the
danger of this man but they ignored his advice. The American
government helped to press Baptista out of the Presidency.
Everything that Mr. Smith predicted about Castro has come to
pass.
Mr. Smith's father was a successful banker. And he has been
most successful as a Stock Exchange broker.
After reading my column for a long time he wrote to say he
wanted to meet me. Later he cabled to say he was flying to
Nassau fuor a day to meet me. We had lunch at the East Hill Club.
Soon after this he sent me a copy of Harry Browne's book,
published in New York in 1970.
"Hlow You Can Profit From The Coming Devaluation" is the
name of the book. Mr. Browne anticipated the devaluation of the
American dollar and advised how to profit from this financial
development. lie recognized that a great many people would be
wiped out by the devaluation' of the dollar.
"Those who believe that a devaluation of the dollar in terms of
gold," an introduction of the book stated, "have been seriously
misled. In spite of soothing words of Keynesian economists, most
people will suffer crippling losses while others will enjoy great
gains.
"Those who lose from devaluation will be those who accept
conventional investment advice. Those few who come out ahead
will be those who are not afraid to stand apart from the crowd
and who understand why devaluation makes investment 'a
whole new ball game'. "
My financial adviser in England was in Nassau at the time. I
handed the book to him to read. tHe followed Browne's advice ...
and made money by acting before the dollar was devalued.
I drew this book to the attention of other friends, both here
and abroad, who are engaged in big business. They didn't pay any
attention to Browne's advice. So opportunity knocked on their
door once ... and passed them by.

And now I must mention another book ... this time from a
lifelong friend right here on the rock.
The day before my wife :mnd I left on our jaunt in Europe and
the We,: Indies last month my daughter sent me a copy of
"Bahamian Jottings ... Poems and Prose ... with photographs and
Reminiscences of Old Nassau" with a charming personal note
from its author .. Wilhelmina Kemp Johnstone.
Mrs. Johnstone and I are in the same age bracket ... I am her
senior by about a year ... and so we grew up in Nassau together.
Boy ... she was a beauty. I don't have to tell you that because
... she still is. And a Canadian banker came here and snatched the
prize.. le deserved to have her because he was one of the finest
men to come to Nassau and make himself one of us. And of
course this couple gave the country some fine children.
I was in the middle of reading a half dozen books when this
book came to me. So many people send me books that I can't get
through them all. Before I get through one another comes along. 1
havr to do a lot of reading in connection with my work.
But I knew that I would enjoy Mrs. Johnstone's reminiscences
because she would be writing about a period in the life of the
Bahamas that was also a part of my experience.
The Tribune has already published a full review of this book.
There i little I can add beyond recalling an article I wrote
recently .n which I said that when beauty and brain were blended
in a woman ... this was God's masterpiece.
Well ... do I have to say it any more clearly
Mrs. Johnstone has been able to preserve her youthful charm
because she has learned to live in the future ... defying age to lay
his crummy hands on her spirit. And she jas transmitted this
spirit to the stories in her book.
One of the bright spots in her book are her own pen sketches
with which she illustrates some of her poems and stories.
Believe it or not. when an art class was opened at Queen's
College two years ago Mrs. Johnstone ... a great grandmother ...
enrolled as a student, and attended night classes for four terms
when the course was discontinued. She was then 71 years young.
Her friends laughed at the thought of an "old woman" taking up
art.
But they were wrong. They had allowed time to sit astride
their purpose for living. But not Mrs. Johnstone. Hers is the kind
of spirit that defies time because she knows that the human spirit
is eternal.
One regret. She has a wonderful ... a valuable ... collection of
old pictures in her book. It is unfortunate that the printers didn't
do justice to the subject.
"Bahamian Jottings" is a valuable contribution to the record of
an interesting period in the Bahamian story that has now passed
into history. It deserves a place in your library.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: I wrote this article last week.
Before I started travelling a few months ago I received an
advance draft copy of a book written Jby a man in


Switzerland with the request that I write a Preface Tor it. This
man has written several books.
I had a few minutes to look at it for the fiust time yesterday
morning.
In the record of his various activities it is stated that he is now
retired and lives between Switzerland and the Bahamas. He is an
avid reader of The Tribune.
In acknowledging sources that inspired him to write this book
he mentions such well known authors as Bertrand Russell, Robert
Ardrey, Desmond Morris, Anthony Burgess, Maxwell Maltz. Dale
Carnegie and "the writings of Sir Etienne Dupuch, O.B.E., the
owner of The Nassau Tribune. I believe Sir Etienne is one of the
wise men of the decade and I feel his outpourings of wisdom and
advice may be listened to only when it is too late," he wrote.
I don't know whether I will be able to write a Preface for this
book as I am now collecting material for several speeches in
Florida and the Cayman Islands. Nothing political.
Some time ago Sir Alan Burns, retired governor of the Gold
Coast (Ghana) and for years the Permanent Representative of
Britain at the U.N., told me he had written another book in
which he has given my work honourable mention. Every time I
see him he expresses amazement at the volume and quality of my
production.
Sir Alan has written several important books on Constitutional
Government and Colonial Administration.
For personal reasons this book will not be published until after
his death.
Some years ago I criticized a statement George Bernard Shaw
made about the Bible when he sold the Bible among other
belongings of his wife after her death.
Someone sent my comments to him. Infuriated, he made a
defensive statement to the press which was featured in a
broadcast by the famous news commentator Lowell Thomas.
I answered Mr. Shaw's defence and sent a copy to Lowell
Thomas.
A few weeks later Mr. Thomas sent my envelope with its
contents back to me with a note informing me that my letter was
in a plane crash and it had been singed by the flames and
blackened by the smoke of the burning plane.
Lowell Thomas thought this was significant.
My criticism of Mr. Shaw's atheistic attitude must have really
struck home because I am told that the incident is mentioned in a
book he wrote a short time before his death.
And so it would seem that ... for good or ill ... my work will
find a place in the history of this period far beyond the shores of
the Bahamas.

Ambrosine celebrates its 25th anniversary


By Daphne Wallace Whitfield
TODAY AMBROSINE.
Nassau's first boutique,
celebrates its 25th Anniversary.
Ambrosine was opened on
the 17th December. 1948 in a
tiny area in the Peek building
on George Street (where to
-day it is still housed) by
Rosemary Ambrosine Kelly,
(thus the boutique's name)
daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Newell Kelly.
A boutique was a pioneering
project in those days and the
hand made English shoes,
doeskin and leather gloves and
handbags were purchased by
the Winter residents and
visitors.


In 1948 the Bahamians who
patronised Ambiosine weie
few and tar between so that for
the first four cars ot the
boutique's life it only opened
in the Winter season. There was
just no business in the long
Summer months.
Two years later, in 1950.
Rosemary married Dr. F.
Douglas Applevard and their
only son, Anthony, was horn
in 1951.
As T1 on\ grew so did
Ambrosine. Two \ears ago
Tony married Ten Heitgen and
the couple live in New York
(itv where Tons works with
Price Waterhouse.
As Nassau grew and changed


so did Animbrosine. In those
early dai s Nassau was a much
more formal society. Ladies
wore gloves and hats to lunch
and the required evening attire
for dining at hotels, and indeed
in private homes, was black tie.
As society changed and
expanded so did Ambrosine.
UNCHANGED
But in one way Ambrosine
did lnot and has not'changed
over the years. Mrs. Appleyard
travelled abroad to buy direct
from the man:ifacttirers as she
does today. And, although
lan\ l thlie earlier items such
as shoes were dropped, and
blouses and lines of dresses
were added there was
absolutely no compromise on
quahit .
In 1973 Ambrosine still
offers its clinetelle only the
best in quality.
F or this you have to
pa' but Mrs. Appleyard
assures me that her clientelle
prefer to hbu one very good
outtlt than several shoddy
ones.
Mans new lines were added


including the most well-known
Emilio Pucci of Florence, Italy,
for which Ambrosine is
famous.
More space was added at the
back of the original shop, and
the upstairs (which had
originally been offices) was
taken over by Ambrosine.
The wealthy for example
visitors to Lyford Cay still
patronise Ambrosine but
to-day Mrs. Appleyard told me
that she has tremendous local
support- clerical and secretarial
staff from offices and banks,
who want the best, buy from
Ambrosine who now stock the
very popular mix and match
jackets, slacks and tops bought
by Mrs. Appleyard from
Europe. They are not cheap
but there is a tremendous
saving over U. S. purchased
Furopean goods.
Mrs. Appleyard is happy
over the reversed ratio between
tourist and local support. "1
never wanted just to be a
tourist shop", she told me
recently. She now works twice
as hard as she did twenty-five

just brought out a new line by

Marking the 25th
Anniversary of Ambrosine also
is Mrs. Augusta Claridge, long
time and respected employee
of the boutique, who has
worked for Ambrosine for all
of the twenty-five years.
This gracious, dignified,


Bahamian lady confirmed the
changes over the years of
which Mrs. Appleyard spoke
and referred to her employer as
"a wonderful person to work
for"
An integral part of
Ambrosine to-day is Jim
Whitehead, professional display
artist. Jim does all the
display throughout the shop,
designed and made all the
decorations to mark the 25th
Anniversary and changes the
window display (which is an
extremely important attraction
of the boutique) twice a week

DEAR ABBY: This problem is my sister's. She is a
very pretty 45-year-old widow with nine kids. She lives in
Naples, Italy. I showed her picture to a widower who lives
in Jersey, and he said he wanted to write to her. [My sister
was born in the U. S. A. and speaks both English and
Italian.] Well, to make a long story short, they correspond-
ed, and he sent her a ticket to visit him here. It was love at
first sight. The problem is, my sister told him she had only
two kids!
He is going to Naples to marry my sister, and he will
surely find out how many kids she has. What do you think
he will do when he finds out the truth?
My sister is afraid to tell him. Should I? This is a

A SISTER


DEAR SISTER: Tell your sister if she doesn't tell him
how many children she has, YOU will, because you feel
responsible for having brought them together. And If you
helped your sister "hide" seven kids, shame on you.

DEAR ABBY: What's happened to people? Nobody in
business gives anything away any more. At Christmas
time, in order to show that they appreciated your business,
the milkman used to give you a pretty kitchen calendar
with the dairy's name on it. The cleaning man would give
you a pretty note pad with a pencil to keep by your tele-
phone. [Okay, so it had their telephone number on it.] My
beauty parlor used to give me a small bottle of shampoo
or perfume, and my grocer used to give my children candy.
Now, nobody you patronize gives you anything. In fact,
THEY expect you to give them something. Why?
OLD TIMER
DEAR OLD TIMER: It's one of the penalties of "pros-
perity." Some others are poor service, inferior quality, and
shortages.

DEAR ABBY: My wife has three sisters and two broth-
ers who got together and gave their parents a Christmas
gift-a three-month vacation in sunny Florida, at OUR
home. [Without even consulting us, I might add.]
My inlaws just called from Montana to give us the
good news that the "other children" presented them with
two round trip tickets to Gainesville, good for a three-
month stay, and they said that WE would be delighted to
have them as our house guests.
Abby, her parents are not easy to get along with. We
could take them for three weeks, but NOT for three
months! They interfere when we discipline our children,
and take sides if my wife and I have a disagreement. My
wife is more upset over this than I.
If they stay here for three months, we will either end
up in the divorce court, or there will be two more cases for
the psychiatric ward. What should we do?
UPSET IN FLORIDA
DEAR UPSET: You and your wife had better quickly
set her parents straight. Tell them frankly that your time
limit for houseguests is three weeks.

CONFIDENTIAL TO D. AND T. IN HIGHLAND
PARK: When you're stuck, you're stuck. Use tact. [Tact is
the art of making your guests feel at home when you wish
they were.]
Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest.
For a personal reply, write to ABBY: Box No. 09700, L. A.,
Calif. 90069. Enclose stamped, self-addressed envelope,
please.
For Abby's new booklet, "What Teen-Agers Want to
Know," send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Bev-
erly Hills, Cal. 0212.

Attorneys for the Petitioners.


per cent less than the cost of
comparable mattresses
imported from Florida.
Mr. Garfunkel, stressing that
his products are superior in
quality to imports, attributes
the price differential to the
fact that the factory is
registered under the
government's Industries
Encouragement Act. 1970. The
Act provides for complete
exemption from all duties and
taxes of plant machinery,
tools, equipment, raw materials
and components. Under the
statute earnings are tax free for
15 years.


He thinks this is sufficient
protection, noting: "I don't
want a monopoly. I don't want
them ( the government) to
raise the duty on springs and
mattresses. We can compete. If
we can't compete we have no
right in the business.
"We will keep growing as
people realize they can buy
more cheaply from us and buy
at their convenience."
The company started
operations with a staff of
three, and has sold about 700
pieces to date. Imperial
Mattress now has seven
employees, and two have been
to Miami for training. The staff
comprises a seamstress, three
box spring workers, and three
men who put mattresses
together.
Mr. Garfunkel says: "My
people have not got the speed
yet, but every week I can see a
little improvement. I am
satisfied. They are all
Bahamians with the exception
of one, and he has Bahamian
status. We are trying to start
small and build up a nucleus of
people on whom we can
depend"
The firm produces box
springs, bunkies, and crib,
youth bed and cot mattresses.
Mr. Garfunkel has made
mattresses measuring three feet
six inches in width instead of
the usual three feet three
inches, and has made
extra-long ones as well as
mattresses of varying shapes.
There is a small extra charge
for such products. Normally,
the factory can turn out 20
box springs and 20 mattresses
per day. It can double its
output without 'increasing-its
size.
The company imports raw"
materials from the United
States and Belgium: it recently
received an order of 3,000
yards of Belgian damask, and
compressed springs arrive in
packages of 15 and 20.
The process of making a
mattress or box spring begins
with cloth-cutting, for which
there is a special tilt table for
measuring and an electrical
cutter which turns out 12 to
15 mattress covers at a time.
Wooden frames are hand- sawn
for box springs, and the coils
are fastened to the frames by
automatic air-compressed
tools. A Tufflex pad is placed
on both top and bottom of the
coil spring. Polyfoam layers
follow, and then the mattress is
covered.

Joseph Garfunkel stands between two rows of mattresses at his Imperial Mattress Co.,
Mackey Street, in a top left photo. The other photos show, clockwise: an over-all view of
the factory; Louie Louis taping the edge around a mattress; Mrs. Priscilla Ferguson at her
sewing machine; Joseph Butler stapling a cover to springs; and John Williams making a

Shunning brown paper

encases each of his mattresses
in sturdy plastic so that the
customer can get a quick idea
of the quality of the product
he is buying.
Also on the premises is a
quilting machine, but it has not
yet been installed.
Asked about the possibility
of exporting mattresses, Mr.
Garfunkel says he wants to
satisfy domestic demand first.
He explains why he chose
his factory's name by pointing
to a Webster definition of
imperial: "Something of
unusual size or excellence."
The mattress factory is one
of a dozen companies
registered under the Industries
Encouragement Act of 1970,
which is part of the


government's thrust towards a
more industrialized economy.
Two other companies are now
awaiting registration.
Mr. Garfunkel, who sold his

factory) is the right thing. It is
a necessary thing. I am glad we
did it."

Nealy


By IVAN JOHNSON
UNSEEDED Armstead
Nealy, Florida's no. I player,
caused the first big upset of the
$12500 Bahamas International
Open when he defeated the no.
2 seed Clarke Graebner 7-5,
7-6, in the third round
yesterday at the Ocean Club
Courts, Paradise Island.
Graebner, who flew in for the
tourney yesterday morning from
Jamaica, where he was competing
in the Rothman's Indoor Open
struggled to adjust to the slower
S pace of the clay courts at the Ocean
Club.
Nealy appeared to be cruising to
an easy win when he streaked to a
5-2 lead in the second set but the
powerful Grabner delighted the
crowd with numerous scintillating
drives as he battled his way to S-S
for a remarkable recovery.
In the 12th game Graebner saved
4 two match points before holding
his serve but at 4-4 in the tie
breaker Graebner obligingly
H smashed a poor lob into the net to
lose the second set 6-7.
Graebner said after the match:
"Nealy played well but I found the
change from the fast surface of
indoor courts to the slower outdoor
day courts in addition to a slight
breeze, pretty difficult.
o n The afternoon's play saw two
more upsets as the unseeded Bill
Tym, former Montagu Beach Pro,
defeated the No. 4 seed Gene Scott
7-5, 2-6, 6-1 and Norman Holmes
beat the No. 8 seed Alberto
Carrero, of Puerto Rico, 6-0, 6-3.

struggle over Bob Stock, 3-6, 6-3,
7-S to move into today's quarter
finals. John Antonas. the last
Bahamian player to bow out of the
Men's Singles, played brilliantly to
take the first set off Buster
Mottram, seeded No. 7, 3-6.
Mottram trailed 2-4 in the
second set but won the next four
games to win the set 6-4 and draw
level.
Antonas broke service in the
5th game of the third set before
Mottram captured the set 6-3.
In the men's senior singles final
unseeded Bob Luxembourg, of
Westhampton Beach New York
trounced the No. 2 seed Bob Brose,
of Southfleld Michigan 6-0, 6-3.
Luxembourg had earlier toppled
the no. I seed Gardner Mulloy 6-2,

Janet Haas, United States
Collegiate champion, seeded no. 2
captured the $400 first prize when
she defeated Orange Bowl

YOUNG DALE STORMS


IN TO FIRST PLACE


FLORIDIAN Dale Welker,
22, considered by his fans as
another Jack Nicklaus, came
through with a one-over-par 73
Saturday bringing his four
round total to 281 capturing
the first prize of $750 in the
South Ocean International
$5,000 Pro-Am tournament.
Welker who led throughout the
four-day affair found the South
Ocean Saturday not as easy as it
seemed. Having picked up a stroke
on the tricky par three eleventh
hole, he double-bouged the 18th to
shoot his highest score of the
tournament.
The Florida apprentice
Professional Golf Association
champion, teaming up with
amateurs Joe Craig, Clint Barnes
and Robin Barchell in the net best
ball division, shot a
course record breaking
five-under.par 67 Wednesday at the
same time pacing his Squad in the
lead.
Welker came back with a 72 on
Thursday and a 69 on Friday taking
a two stroke lead going into the
final round. His team was unable to
put it together again and ended in
fifth place.
Having picked up two birdies
between the first four holes, Welker
shot his first bogey of the
tournament when he went on over
on the par four 396 yards fifth
hole. He made up for that with a
birdie on the following hole ending
the par 36 front nine two under.
He never recovered from his
bogey on the lIth hole. And, on
the 18th. he sliced his tee shot into
the thicket, took a penalty stroke
and was on the green in four before
putting for a double bogey six.
Still unable to find favour with
his putting, world 24th ranked
golfer Lee Elder shot a one under
par 71 for a second place total of
283. Elder donated his prize to the
Bahamas' junior golfers programme.
Getting off to a slow start in the
first round with a sixth place 74,
Elder stormed back into contention
with a 68 on Thursday that moved
him into third place. A 70 on
Friday held him one stroke behind
Bahamas' Donald "Nine" Rolle.
Rolle, shooting a consistent 69,
71, 71 over the first three rounds
was unable to fully control the
South Ocean course which was
playing at its toughest and turned
in a 77 for third place honours.
Teaming up in the foursome of
Freeport's Preston Stuart, Bahamas
Hoerman Cup player Basil Smith
and junior golfer Michael Rolle,
Rolle led his team to first place in
the net best ball with a 224.
South Ocean's pro Audnel Clarke
along with Robert McMullen, Eric
Gibson Sr. and Eric Gibson Jr. shot
a second place net 225. Clarke in
the medal play shot scores of 72,
75, 75 and 74 for a sixth place total
of 296.
Clarke's team drew a first place
tie with that of George Turnquest

A FLAMINGO, thought to
be of Bahamian origin and
weary of the Canadian cold,
recently took an Air Canada
flight back to the Bahamas.
The long-legged bird has
now settled in comfortably at
the Rand Memorial Nature
Centre in Freeport.


The flamingo's perils
began, it seems, in late October
when it was blown towards
Canada by tropical storm
Gilda, which cut a path
y I through the central Bahamas,
Heavily damaging crops in
.. Andros, Exuma and Eleuthera.
The year-old bird was
., .. captured by the Chignecto
Environment Health Services. The trucks are only 96 inches Naturalist Club of Sackville,
wide and have the facility to work in narrow streets and the New Brunswick, and turned
capacity to compress trash and garbage into the packer over to the local game warden,

there he saw a few flamingoes
living happily in captivity.
Dr. Paul H. Fluck, director
of the Rand Memorial Nature
Centre, received a call from the
warden, who requested
permission to return the bird
to the Bahamas as it could not
survive the Canadian winter.
The government agreed to the
flamingo's return, and Air
Canada offered to fly it in free
of charge.
The bird arrived in good
health, except for a small
frostbite spot on one foot.
Local naturalists theorize
that the national bird was
plucked by Gilda from a covey
which had flown from Inagua
to Andros feeding grounds.
Only two weeks ago a large
colony was spotted in Andros.
Another possibility is that it
is an escapee from a U.S. zoo,
but there have been no reports
of zoo losses.

The fares won't stop you, either. From Freeport to Miami, B$32 round trip
for a 1-day excursion and B$36 round trip for a longer stay. From Nassau to


Miami, B$38 round trip for a 1-day excursion and B$48 round trip for a longer

stewardess will serve you a complimentary Bahama Rum Punch.
Now that you're going to Miami, aren't you glad we're going there too?
For reservations, you can phone Bahamasair in Nassau at 7-8511. In Freeport,
