Sharp

drop

in air

tourists

goes on

VISITOR ARRIVALS in the
Bahamas last month were up
almost six percent over
November last year, despite a
continuing sharp drop in air
arrivals, particularly in Nassau,
where the decline last month
was well over seven percent.
On the cumulative count,
too, air arrivals for the first 11
months of the year are well
below the figure for the same
period in 1972, but strong
advances in the sea arrivals
category have put the
all-Bahamas visitor arrivals
total up almost one percent
over 1972.
The out islands are
continuing to take a greater
share of the all-Bahamas total.
According to figures released
by the Department of
Statistics, visitor arrivals in the
Bahamas last month totalled
117,626 up 5.47 percent
over November. 1972's
110,996.
November's contribution
brought the cumulative total
for the first 11 months of 1973
up to 1,397,448 a 0.88
percent increase over the
1,385,309 recorded for the
same period in 1972.
The total increase is due
largely to the fact that sea
arrivals last month numbered
38,021 compared with the
31,015 recorded in November
last year. Last month's rise put
the cumulative sea arrivals up
to 464,102, a full nine percent
over 1972's 11-month total of
425,797.
DARK SPOT
The dark spot in the picture
i..-n-ti eto bo1 .air ).'...
All-Bahamas air arrivals last
month were-down 0.47percent
from the 79,911 recorded in
November, 1972 to the 79,605
noted last month.
The November fall put the
cumulative air arrivals for 1973
at 2.73 percent behind the
1972 figure. Up to the end of
November last year air arrivals
had totalled 959,512,
compared with 1973's
933,346.
Air visitors, by virtue of
their longer stay in the
Bahamas, contribute far more
money to the tourist economy
than sea arrivals.
An area break-down of the
total figures showed that
Nassau's visitor arrivals last
month were 77,856, a ten
percent increase over
November. 1972.
But again it was sea arrivals
which caused the rise. They
were up a whopping 61.35
percent over November last
year, from 22,383 to 36,115.
AIR DIP
Air arrivals, on the other
hand, dropped to 41,750 last
month, 13.76 percent behind
the November, 1972 figure.
On the cumulative account,
Nassau air arrivals in the first
11 months of this year are
down 7.39 percent from last
year, sea arrivals are up 28.17,
balancing out to an overall rise
of 5.27 percent.
In Freeport last month the
sea arrivals-air arrivals trend
was reversed. Air arrivals were
up 17.66 percent, and sea
arrivals plummetted 9.46
percent.
Freeport's cumulative figure
at the end of November this
year stood at 339,442 12.45
percent below the 1972 total.
Cumulative totals for both sea
and air arrivals are down, 49.89
percent and 1.5 percent
respectively.
Tourist business in the out
islands, however, is picking up.


Although November reports
were not in from Walker's Cay
and San Salvador in time for
inclusion in the Department's
release, air arrivals in
November showed a 25.66 per
cent increase over the same
month last year, and sea
arrivals were up 9.38 percent

RESIGN, FOULKES





URGES PINDLING


By Nicki Kelly
ST. BARNABAS candidate Arthur
Foulkes today called on Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling and his Cabinet to
resign so that a new government capable
of running the country can be formed.
"In the 1972 general election it was not
apparent to the majority of Bahamians that
the PLP was incapable of governing the
country," the Free National Movement
nominee declared.
Although his party had warned the PLP
could not govern or take the country into
independence without serious hardship to the


people, a "blaze of emotionalism" and a
"massive propaganda campaign" had returned
them to power, Mr. Foulkes said.
"From September 1972 up to the present
time the facts of life have been catching up
with the PLP. It is obvious that the
government in their desperate fear of losing
power are becoming more intolerant and
dictatorial every day. They are afraid of
opposition and they resent criticism."
Mr. Foulkes pointed to the case of Mr
Oswald Bernard, who. The Tribune reported,
was harassed by Immigration for his public
statement on the Cable Beach attack made on
an elderly American couple,


Moxey wants apology-



for Hanna remarks


by Nicki Kelly
COCONUT GROVE
representative Edmund Moxey
(PLP) has accused Deputy
Prime Minister Arthur Hanna
of making remarks in the
House "maliciously designed"
to discredit him in the eyes of
the public. And Mr Moxey
wants an apology.
Yesterday's letter from the
M.P. to Mr. Hanna resulted
from last week's allegation by
the Deputy Prime Minister that
Mr. Moxey had transported
slot machines from the
Paradise Island casino and tried
to install them in Nassau until
he (Mr. Hanna) put a stop to it.
Mr H-ina's statement was
made during the heated debate
on casino gambling, and after
Mr. Moxey said he regarded
gambling as a betrayal of PLP
philosophy and unsuited to an
emerging nation.
Mr. Hanna said he was
particularly confused about the
Coconut Grove representative's


remarks in view of his own slot
machine association.
"Firstly I would like to say
that I have at no time in my
life transported slot machines
from Paradise Island," Mr.
Moxey observed in his letter to
the Deputy Prime Minister.
"Secondly, I can remember
at no time in my life your
having to stop me in any such
affair." he said. He did
however remember that on
July 7, 1970 permission was
sought from Mr. Hanna's
Ministry (then Home Affairs).
by Mr. Herbert Stewart,
vice-president of the Nassau
Junior Chamber, on behalf of
the Chamber to operate Black
Jack, Pocanno, Hoop Ring,
Coco Cola, slot machine,
money ring treasure hunt and
bottle ring, with proceeds
going to the Coconut grove
Community Centre.
That permission was granted
in a letter dated July 28, 1970,
Mr. Moxey said. Enclosed in


Thompson to set-


up consulting firm


MR. ANTHONY A.
Thompson (pictured), acting
manager of the Bahamas
Monetary Authority,
announced today he is to
establish a financial consulting
firm following his resignation
from the Authority.
Mr. Thompson confirmed
earlier this month that this
resignation from the Authority
would become effective
December 31, and that he
proposed to enter the private
financial sector.
"In January the firm of
Anthony A. Thompson &
Associates, financial
consultants, will be
established," Mr. Thompson
told The Tribune today.
tHe said it would be a sole
proprietorship type of
organisation whose associates
initially will be financial
consulting firms in the United
States and Canada.
"I anticipate that some of
the firm's activities would
require that I work very closely
with the government and its
various agencies," he added.
In this regard he had already
indicated his willingness to
cooperate and assist wherever
possible in being of service to
the new Bahamian nation.
Mr. Thompson observed that
there had been speculation
regarding his resignation from
the Monetary Authority and he
thought that at this stage it
might be useful to provide
further details.
He said his resignation as
acting manager was submitted
to the chairman Mr. T.
Baswell Donaldson, on
November 14.
"I made reference to the
harmonious working
relationship I enjoyed with him
and the other managers in the
Authority, and slated that
there was no doubt in my mind
that under his able direction
and with their cooperation and
assistance, the Central Bank
would be an institution of
which all Bahamians could be
proud."
Mr. Thompson pointed out
that his resignation came some


six weeks after it was learned
that he had successfully passed
Part 1 final examination for a
University of London External
Law degree.
He said he hoped to
complete the degree course
next June. "The combination
of a knowledge of legal
principles coupled with a
financial background seems
appropriate for anyone who
wishes to provide business and
financial services in this
financial centre," Mr.
Thompson stated.
The 33-year-old financial
expert has had a varied
background in the public and
private sector.
An Honours graduate of
Dalhousie University, he held
positions with Outboard
Marine International, the
Bacardi Company and the
Ministry of Finance before
joining the Monetary
Authority in 1968 as senior
assistant.
He was promoted to acting
manager in 1972.
Mr. Thompson has held
directorships with the Bahamas
Electricity Corporation,
Benguet Consoldiate Inc., the
Caribbean Development Bank
and the Rotary Club of Nassau.

Cutlass charge

charged before Magistrate
Emmanuel Osadebay with the
Saturday night cutlass attack
on a Nassau Beach Hotel
security officer.


his letter to the Deputy Prime
Minister were copies of the
pertinent correspondence
relating to the request.
The first letter from Mr.
Stewart, dated June 30, 1970,
was addressed to the
Commissioner of Police. It
asked for permission to operate
spinning wheels, bingo,
roulette and "other games of
chance" in the Coconut Grove
area on August 1, 2 and 3 of
that year, in aid of the
proposed community centre.
A July 1, 1970 letter from
Senior Assistant Commissioner
Stan Moir to Mr. Stewart
pointed out that under the
provisions of the Lotteries and4
Gambling Act permission must
be first obtained from the
Minister of Home Affairs. His
letter therefore, should be
addressed to the Permanent
secretary of that Ministry.
On July 9, 1970 a letter was
received by Mr. Stewart from
the Ministry of Home Affairs
stating that before his
application could be
considered he would have to
forward specific information
on the "other games of
chance" mentioned in his
letter.
On July 21, 1970, Mr.
Stewart wrote the permanent
secretary, Home Affairs,
detailing the other games
mentioned in his previous
letter.
On July 28, 1970, Mr.
Stewart received a letter from
the Home Affairs Ministry
stating that the permission to
operate the games of chance
for the three-day period had
been granted.
Writing to Mr. Hanna
yesterday Mr. Moxey said he
would like to remind him that
it was not the Deputy Prime
Minister but Mr. Greg
Bently(secretary of the Gaming
Board) and the Hon. Loftus
Roker (then gaming Board
chairman) who pointed out
that government might have
been setting an unusual
precedent.
Mr. Stewart and the Junior
Chamber were asked to remove
the slot machines which they
did, Mr. Moxey said.
Rapping Mr. Hanna for his
comments in the louse, Mr.
Moxey said he believed that
they were maliciously designed
to discredit him in the eyes of
the public, and he "hereby"
requested an apology.
Furthermore, he said, "I
want to make clear to you my
position on organized gambling
in the Bahamas.
."I believe that my
government is making a serious
mistake in becoming directly
involved in organized gambling.
I am not against gambling as
such, but I am against its evil
influences.
"A Bahamian economy
based on organized gambling
must destroy what should be
our motto in our emerging
nation, and that is self-reliance
and self-sufficiency," Mr.
Moxey declared
An economy) based on
organized gambling must
destroy our cultural heritage,
he felt.
Mr. Moxey has been publicly
critical of the manner in which
the government has handled
the whole casino issue


Mr. Bernard's case, he said.
-is but one :nandrlf"'.i.ii,:, of
the dangerous attitude which
has grown in the PLP over the
last few years.
"They have become selfish
and arrogant and they openly
persecute those who do not
bow their will and even those.
like Mr. Bernard who would
like to help the government
and the country succeed by
offering constructive
criticism."
Mr. Foulkes said he had
known Mr. Bernard personally
for many years as a dedicated
supporter of the PLP. "He is
civic-minded and he is a
gentleman, the sort of person
any political party should he
happy to number among its
members and the soit of
person who is a credit to any
community." Mr. Foulkes said.
GESTAPO TACTIC
That he had been subjected
to "'Ge.tar .r .il.," harassment
by the PLP government and
humiliated merely for
expressing his point of view
and his feelings was a
"shameful reflection on the
government and the nation as a
whole.
"If Bahanmians do not
stand up now against such
despicable behavior on the
part of the government then
we all stand in serious danger
of losing our most precious
rights as Bahamians and as
free people," Mr. Foulkes
declared.
He said he was con ix.i':
that the dictorial attitude ,,
the PLP was due directly to the
realization that they had failed
the country and that there was
no way out for the Bahamtas
under their administration.
"The more their failures
multiply and are seen by the
public, the more arrogant "I .
become "
For those who still doubted
the PLP's admission of failure.
Mr. Foulkes referred to P'rmi
Minister Pindling's Ortober
convention statement that
independence had diverted the
government's attention a.iwa
from the pressingg social and
economic problems" )I
unemployment, housing, the
cost of living alcoholism.
illegitimacy and law and order
CALLOUS NFGIL.FC
Compounding this "'callous
neglect" was the "well-timed'
announcement of new housing
loan at a time when those who
need to benefit from the
availability of low cost housing
funds are in no position to take
on any kind of mortgage
payments at this time.
Furthermore. Mr. Foulkes
observed, it was obvious to
the Bahamas and to the world
that the Prime Minister's
government was beset by
internal quarreling,
back-biting and
back-stabbing, and was in no
position to manage the affairs
of the nation and to restore
confidence at home or
abroad.
"Four more years of this
confusion will reduce us to
such a level that it would take
a herculean effort to restore
any semblance of our former
prosperity." Mr Foulkes
asserted.
Mr Pindling should
therefore du the nation a
favour He should admit that
he and his government had
failed, that they knew in 1972
they had failed and that they
could not otow possibly
succeed.
"I therefore call on the
Prime Minister and his
government to resign so that
the people can mount a new
government before it is too
late," Mr Foulkes challenged

ENTERPRISING thieves
made off with $54,997 worth
of watches, rings and other
jewellery during a weekend
break-in at the Freeport
Jewellers Limited store in the
International Bazaar.
The break-in occurred
sometime between 5:45 p.m.
on Saturday and early
Monday morning, the day of
the discovery.
Freeport police have
opened investigations into the
jewel theft, the second in
Freeport within two weeks.
A break-in at the
International Bazaar's Ginza
store resulted in four
Americans being charged and
convicted after Nassau police
arrested them at Paradise
Island in connection with the
theft.
Freeport Jewellers Ltd.
manager Carl Ippolito
described the break-in as "a
real professional job."
"They were real pro's
evidently," he said. His store,

compound has an alley

1 ,il',.; HIS BRIEF
ti I RF on the Bench, Chief
Justice Leonard J. Knowles
has become convinced that it is
i:np soi;bie for an accused
person or a civil litigant to
obtain a satisfactory hearing
unless represented by counsel.
The Chief Justice's
observation was made during a
recent address to the East
Montagu Kiwanis on Human
Rights.
"What we need," he said, "is
a comprehensive Legal Aid Act
which will ensure that all
parties who have to go to
court both in criminal and
civil proceedings, will have the
advantage of being advised and
represented by a qualified
lawyer."
Although recognizing the
differences among various
members of the legal
profession, the Chief Justice
nevertheless felt that "the most
incompetent of counsel is
better than none at all ."
NO SUBSTII UTI
le noted that evn though.
where a party is unrepresented
by counsel, the Judge
invariably leans over backward
to help him, this was no
substitute for representation
by counsel, who had an
opportunity to interview his
client in his chambers before
the case began, and prepare the
case thoroughly befoiuehanid
"The fact that often parties
appear in Court without
counsel is due to lack of legal
provision for this," His
Lordship said. The funds, he
added, simplev do not exist."
"What we need is a
comprehensive Legal Aid Act
which will ensure that all
parties who have to go to
Court. both in criminal and
civil proceedings, will have the
advantage of being advised and
represented by a qualified
lawyer."


jewel raided
by security officers.
The thieves took the latch
off and then knocked the
lock off the door to make
entry to the outside rear of
the store. He said they must
have used a very heavy
instrument to damage the
lock to the door because the
locks were very durable.
By breaking the lock to the
back exit they then got inside
the building.
The time spent breaking
the locks on the doors would
have taken the thieves at least
half an hour, Mr. Ippolito
said.
He was convinced that the
thieves were professionals
because of the type of
jewellery they removed from
the store's showcases after
jimmying the locks on those.
those.
"They only took valuable
stuff. They almost wiped us
out of our stock of watches,"
he said, adding that he carried
top brand watches such as
Bulova and Tissot, among
others.
Mr. Ippolito, who
discovered the break-in


A similar point was made in
the House earlier this month
by Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna.

Sir Roland Symonette
(Ind. Shirlea) had asked
for a committee to
consider whether government
should be advised to provide
legal assistance on the civil side
of those unable financially to
interest members of the Bar
Association.
LONG OVERDUE
In giving his support to
appointment of such a
committee, Mr. Hanna said he
felt such a move was long
overdue. Unfortunately
however, the legal profession
was not public-spirited enough,
he felt.
"Their time is taken up by
their own paid work, but the
legal profession owes
something to the legal system
in this country," Mr. Hanna
observed.
He pointed out that the
costs to government of legal
fees was "fantastic" "A
number of young lawyers are
coming back. and this would
be a scheme to give them a
great deal of experience. If
they were wise they would
subscribe to it," he told the
House.
Opposition Leader Kendal
Isaacs pointed out, however,
that under the Legal Aid
system in Great Britain defence
attorneys are paid by the state.

Sir Roland, Mr. Isaacs, Mr.
Oscar Johnson, Mr. Hanna and
Mr. Joseph Ford were named
by the Speaker to consider the
proposal for leial assistance.

Under the appropriations
bill in the 1974 Budget the
salary of the Chief Justice has
been increased from $19,000
to $30,000 a year.


Health Ministry earnings to rise


GOVERNMENT either
expects the nation's health to
deteriorate drastically next
year, or intends to raise the
cost of Health Ministry services
io iie public.
lIeal'h Mminiter A Loftus
Roker ha<. it is agreed,
improved the MNlinistry's
revenue-collection system, but
it is thought unlikely that the
greater efficiency accounts for
the fact that the Ministry's
earnings during 1974 are
e,.pected to be almost 40
percent over the income for
this year
Final figures for 1973
obviously are not yet in. but


the 1974 budget estimates that
by year's end the Ministry will
have collected a total of
$662,890.
The 1974 revenue estimate
for Health is $1,001,820.
By far the largest increase is
going to come from fees at the
Princess Margaret Hospital. The
1973 estimate is $249,700,
compared with next year's
anticipated $525,000.
Freeport's Rand Memorial
Hospital is expected to
contribute $450,000 in fees
during 1974, compared with
1973's estimated S397,050.
The fees for Public Health
Services such as garbage
collection are expected to


rise from 1973's $16,140 to
$19,820 in 1974.
Sandilands Rehabilitat ion
Centre and the Public Analyst's
office, neither of which have
ever before shown revenue, are
expected to contribute $5,000
and $2,000 respectively next
year.

yesterday morning said that a
good amount of "first class
jade" items were also
removed from the show-cases
as well as other stones,
diamonds and emeralds.
The thief was not confused
by costume jewellery items
the store carried because he
left them untouched. All of
the charms and pendants
taken were in the 14, 15, and
18 kt. gold range, he said.
But, in their haste, the
thieves left behind a slender

It was the first break-in

FLIGHT control experts are
becoming increasingly
concerned that an ailing
Control gyroscope on the
Skylab space station will fail
and lead to an early end of the
Skylab's mission.
Skylab 3 astronauts Gerald
U. Carr, William R. Pogue and
Edward G. Gibson were in the
31st day of their 84-day
mission Sunday and a failure of
the gyro, experts believe, could
force them to come home long
before their planned Feb. 8
splashdown.
Flight Director Charles
Lewis said the faltering gyro
has forced fewer
instrument-pointing
manoeuvres and a decrease in
scientific studies.
One Skylab gyroscope failed
early in the mission. Should
the second gyro fail, officials
said, Skylab's stability and
manoeuvres could be
controlled only by the use of
gas thrusters on the space
station and rocket thrusters on
the Apollo command ship
docked to the station.
At minimum use, these
thrusters could extend the
mission for several weeks, but
many scientific studies,
including observations of the
comet Kohoutek, would be
curtained.
"There's more concern and
it's being looked at 24 hours a
day," Lewis said.
AN AMERICAN pale-
ontologist has discovered bone
fossils in north central

linkups of two manned
satellites in space.
The initial Tass announce-
ment, however, made no
mention of a second planned
launch.
Tass said Soyuz 13 was
launched at 1455 Moscow
time.
The launch indicated a step
up in the Soviet manned space
programme, perhaps in an
effort to land a man on the
moon.
A planned link up in space, a
key step in the Soviet moon
programme. ended in disaster
in June 1971 when a three-man
crew was killed returning to
earth.
The Soviet waited until
September 1973 before
launching another improved
version of the manned satellite
Soyuz 12.
The Tass announcement
gave few details of the flight
programme.
It said this includes
astro-physical observation of
stars, spectrozonal survey of
the earth's surface and
S c continuation of
comprehensive verification and
check up of the systems on
board."
The latter could indicate
preparations for the joint U.
S.-Soviet launch planned for
1975.
Tass said a stable and
television contact is being
maintained with Soyuz 13

BOMB BLOWS OFF QUEEN'S AIDE'S HAND


LONDON One of Queen Elizabeth's
aides, Brig. Michael O'Cock, lost a hand
when a letter bomb exploded as he
opened it, Scotland Yard said.
It was the second letter bomb reported
in London yesterday.
The blast that wounded O'Cock,
54-year-old army chief of staff for the
London military district, came a few
hours after the Yard warned a new terror
wave may have been unleashed.


The letter bomb, believed to be a
hollowed-out paperback book containing
explosives, was addressed to O'Cock's
home in the fashionable Chelsea district.
The brigadier holds the Military Cross,
Britain's third highest military medal for
gallantry.
Scotland Yard issued its warning after
the first letter bomb, also planted in a
paperback book, was intercepted at a
major department store chain's
headquarters in North London.


It was addressed to the manager and
was spotted by a girl clerk as she opened
it.
Police chiefs said the device was similar
to those mailed by urban guerrillas earlier
this year. The book, by Hugh Burnett, was
one of a consignment stolen from a
bookshop, some of which were used in
the summer letter-bomb wave.
Those devices, the Yard said, were
powerful enough "to blow a man in
half." (AP)

The ambulance driver said
that as he drove up to the jet,
he saw a solitary figure

PHNOM PENH A
government task force
attempting to open Highway 4
to the seaport of Kompong
Som killed 60 Khmer Rouge
insurgents and advanced
another mile, the Cambodian
military command said today.
The force is trying to clear
the Khmer Rouge in an area
about 38 miles west of Phnom
Pe Tu but taxi drivers reported
that the insurgents have cut the
road near Thnal Totung, 21
miles from the capital.
In Phnom Penh, two
passersby were killed when
terrorists threw a grenade at
Thappanau Ngin, the assistant
defense minister, as he was
leaving for his office.
In South Vietnam, the
United States delegation to the
joint military team walked out
of a plenary session today in
protest against the killing last
Saturday of an unarmed U.S.
officer in a Vietcong ambush.


Col. Tombaugh, chief of the
U. S. delegation, waved the
dead man's bloodstained jacket
before the Vietcong and North
Vietnamese delegations and
declared: "The outrage of this
premeditated atrocity is
beyond redemption." (AP)

Libyan plane over Sinai, killing

The wound appeared to be
superficial and he was taken
back to the plane within 20
minutes.
Syrian Air Force Chief Maj.
Gen. Naji Jamil appealed to the
terrorists from the airport
control tower to free their
hostages.
He pointed out that the
Syrian government had met all
their requests for food, fuel
and first aid, and promised
them they would not be
imprisoned if they surrendered.
They refused all his appeals.
Damascus state radio reported
that the hijackers said they
were "sorry we cannot respond
fovourably to the general's
appeal, but promised they will
give the hostages the best
possible treatment and they
will be released within a few
hours."
The radio report quoted the
hijackers as saying all the
hostages were "safe." At least
12 hostages, including the
plane's German crew, were
believed to be aboard the
aircraft with the three
hijackers.
Twenty portions of food
were taken aboard.
In Tel Aviv, Foreign Minister
Abba Eban conveyed Israel's
condolences to the
governments of Italy, West
Germany and the United States
today on the deaths of victims
of the attack.
In a cable to the West
German and Italian foreign
ministers and U.S. Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger, Eban
said:
"Our nation, whose citizens
have often been the targets of
those murderous assaults by
Arab terrorists, feels deep
sympathy and solidarity with
all its innocent victims

Survivors tell of the horror


ROME "I went back inside the plane but
I couldn't find my sister. And then, at Ahe
morgue well, you couldn't tell at all who
was who," said Randall Kirby, of the United
States today.
The day before, he had escaped alive from
the flaming wreckage of a Pan American jet
firebombed by Arab terrorists at Rome's
international airport. His sister, Jan, 19, was
missing and presumed dead,
'"I was praying that she had got out by some
other door, but I didn't see her," said Kirby,
his voice firm despite the tragedy.
He and his sister were part of a 35-member
tour group organized by the Arab American Oil
company as a Christmas visit trip for relatives
of Americans working for the company in
Saudi Arabi.
The Kirbys were on their way to see their


parents.
"I guess we'll just want to get Jan back
home and give her a funeral in the states," said
the young man, a senior at Harding College,
Searcy, Arkansas.
"My husband's back was all on fire,"
recalled Dorothy Fraser, a vivacious brunette
of about 40.
"I just don't know how we ever got out
alive," she added.
"But we are alive and thankful for it."
Barbara Marnock, attractive, 31-year-old
stewardess, said: "It was so sudden we didn't
know where to turn.
Everyone was fairly calm there was no
screaming panic. I couldn't see anything in the
smoke and had to find the emergency exit by
feeling along the wall. Once we got it open I
just started pulling people out onto the wing."


streaming to work at the time
of the explosion had no
advance warning of the car
bomb, parked at a traffic meter
outside a Home Office
building, although Scotland
Yard had received word 30
minutes in advance. The
Home Office is responsible for
police and intelligence work.
A Yard spokesman said it
received an emergency call
from the London Evening
News around 0830GMT,
passing on a telephone message
from an anonymous woman
speaking with an Irish accent.
"Listen carefully," she
reportedly said. "There's a
bomb going off in Horseferry
Road and the street must be
cleared."
Mrs. Susan Grinter, a
pregnant office cleaner treated
for shock after the blast, said
the scene in the street was
"like a battlefield. There was
blood everywhere."
She said the force of the
explosion threw her on top of
another woman, "But I didn't
know what happened. What
will become of the baby?"
The injured were rushed to
the nearby Westminster
Hospital, where two received
surgery for lacerations.
It was the first car bomb
attack in the British capital
since last March.
Seven IRA members were
sentenced to life imprisonment
in the March attacks, which
killed one person and injured
nearly 200.


TERROR

GIRLS

FORCE

FED

IN JAIL
LONDON Dolours and
Marian Price, the two Northern
Ireland sisters serving life
sentences for their part in a
guerilla bombing campaign of
London, are being force fed in
jail, their attorney said.
The Home Office declined
to comment on the report but
prison officials said the two,
aged 22 and 19 respectively,
are being fed through a tube
forced down their throats.
Their solicitor, Bernie
Simons, told the liberal
Guardian newspaper that the
sisters had been granted
permission to appeal against
their treatment, the first such
legal move in more than 60
years.
Simons said the appeal will
be lodged against the Home
Office and the Governor of
Brixton Prison and would be
based on the claim that the
authorities have no right to
force feed prisoners on hunger
strike.
The sisters began a hunger
strike Nov. 16, the day they
were sentenced at Winchester
Crown Court. Five other
members of the nationalist
provisional faction of the Irish
Republiacn Army jailed with
them also gave up eating but
only one of them is still going
without food.
The Price sisters are
demanding treatment as
political prisoners requiring
segregation trom common
criminals and insist on being
transferred to Northern Ireland
to serve their sentences.
Home Secretary Robert Carr
has already refused in
application they sent to
Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, the British Army
claims its soldiers hit two IRA
gunmen today in a shootout in
north Belfast. The British said
a third man was hit, apparently
by stray bullets in another
shooting incident. (AP).


Syria

DAMASCUS Syria
announced today it will not
attend the Middle East peace
conference which will open in
Geneva later this week.
A government statement
said the decision was taken "in
the light f various facts which
indicate a combination of
manoeuvers intended to serve
Israeli interests,"
The statement said tho
decision followed.- th
consultations the Syria4
government had both with U.S3
Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger during his recent
Middle East tour and with
Egyptian Foreign Minister
Ismail Fahmy who was in
Damascus yesterday.
Meanwhile, Kissinger took a
brief respite from diplomatic
negotiations today for a quick
look at the many hills of
Lisbon.
His swift motorcade tour of
some of the capital's beauty
spots overlooking the Tagus
estuary came midway in his
second day of talks with
Portuguese leaders on African
problems and the current
energy crisis.
Flanked by aides and
advisors, Kissinger examined a
possible extension of the
airbase agreement which gives
the U.S. access to Lajes field
on the island of Terceira in the
Azores.
This base played a vital role
in the American airlift to
Israel.

The path to dictatorship


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
LAST WEEK was even.. ul in the life of the Bahamian people.
Most of the events that made top news sprang from the
government ... which is the heart of the people.
I need hardly go into details. Events centred around Prime
Minister Pindling. Deputy Prime Minister Hanna, Development
Minister Francis, Backbenchers Mackey, Moxey and a few other
confused souls in the P.L.P. parliamentary structure.
The result of all this is that Mi. Francis has resigned as
Development Minister and Mr. Moxey has been relieved of the
little political plum given him by the Prime Minister at an earlier
period when "plums" were handed out during a time of serious
unrest in the party and eight members walked out of the
government.
It was believed at the time that these "plums" served to check
a rout that threatened to topple the Prime Minister and Mr.
Hanna.
Details of these events are well known to Tribune readers and
so I don't feel I should take space to go over the ground again.
Today I am going to tell you a st,rv about human behaviour.

For years Carlton Francis was pushed around by the FdIjation
Department under the U.B.P.
After he had qualified for a senior post in the department he
was shifted from pillar to post and the issue was avoided.
He received his worst buffeting during the period when Alvin
Braynen was chairman ot the Board. He finally found himself on
the outside, the headmaster of a small Baptist School.
I wonder if Mr. Francis ever checked the Minutes of the
Board of Education for this period. I have reason to believe that
he would have found some juicy ... and I am talking about bitter
juice ... comments about himself in these records.
During that period his only public voice in the country was this
newspaper.
The time came when it suited Mr. Braynen's politics to jump
on the P.L.P. bandwagon.
Today Mr. Francis is out of favour with the political Siamese
twins Pindling and Hanna and Mr. Braynen is one of the
pirty's favourite sons.......

George Mackey worked for The Tribune as a Linotype
operator for over 19 years. I liked him and, because I was aware
of his honesty and sincere moral principles. I named him "Honest
George".
I knew that he was an ardent P.L.P. but that didn't make any
difference. I respected him because I believed he was honest at
heart.
And then he left The Tribune and became actively involved in
P.L.P. politics. Now he is a member of the House ... the recipient
of one of the Prime Minister's little plums...and I was often
teased by my friends for having named him "Honest George".
I met his brother a couple of ii ni..i ago and asked how
George was getting on. lie told tie that George had been on the
edge of a nervous breakdown. They had to force him to rest.
I wasn't surprised because I just didn't understand how the
George Mackey I thought I knew could become active in a group
of men who had been so harsh and unfair in just about everything
they had done since they won power.
Now everyone knows the reason sicLe the gambling issue
caused a deep split in the party last week. Honest George found
himself associating with men who would deny him the right to be
honest with himself on questions of morality.
Under the P.L.P. there can be no morality except that laid
down by the party line. As Mr. Pindling once declared in a public
speech: "Fish or cut bait ... or get to hell out of the boat."

For a long time George Moxcy wrote a music column for The
Tribune. We were close friends.
The time came when his son, Ediund Moxey, became active in
politics and wrote a calypso that became the party song for a
P.L.P. general election.
At the time two of my sons Berniard and Pierre were
candidates for seats in the House. I asked George Moxey the
father to write something for them to use in their campaign.
Suffice it to say ... he didn't do it.
You know the rest of the story. The small plum that was
handed out to Edmund Moxey when his loyalty was needed to
held the party together has been taken away from him.


Now let us look back over the years and remember the men
who have been either ruined politically or badly hurt by
association with the two dominant figures in the P.L.P.
The first was A. Leon McKinney. When Mr. McKinney decided
to join the P.L.P. he came to me for advice. We were very close
friends at the time. He told me he felt that by joining these men
he could raise the standard of the party and guide them away
from the destructive policies they were following.
4 gave him an opinion based on years of experience with
people. I told him that, in my opinion, the P.L.P. was an evil
thing. I reminded him that no one ever cured evil by joining it. In
the end it always dragged good men down to its level.


He said he would try and lie \'..'ild let inc know h' \ hlie tlred.
Six months later he wa.i bick in inN nfticc. Ilk. nid I was right.
He had quit them.
J don't know whatever induced himi to go ba Ik I'o a second Ir\
but a couple of years later he was back with them.
I will not go over the unfloitinate events of that period but
suffice it to say that this association ruined him politically ... and
nW, I am told he is no longer manager of the bank that his ability
hal made a unique success.
A faithful P.L.P. stalwart nuw occupies his chair .. and also a
seat in the Senate!

Randol Fawkes has done nime tor labhmi than an% man or
woman in the country iodas lie is the father of the labour
movement in these islands.

when his single vote was needed in I 67 to give the party a


Most dishonest, govt.


EDITOR, The Tribune,
It is my personal opinion
that the P.L.P. government is
the most dishonest thing this
country has ever been saddled
with. When one thinks back
and considers all the
things they have accused the
U.B.P. government of which
they were supposed to have
bettered, one can only come to
the painful conclusion that the
biggest hoax of the 20th
century has been perpetrated
against the Bahamian people.
They were supposed to lower
the cost of living, reduce our
taxes, upgrade our educational
system, make us first class
citizens, and naturally share
the wealth of our country.
There's nothing the P.L.P.
can do about the high cost of
living, because they are the
reason it is so high. When the
U.B.P. were the government,
Win-Dixie and other American
food chain giants were not
allowed to operate here. The
reason behind this was quite
obvious being merchants
themselves, they, the U.B.P.
were protecting their own
interest and in so doing they
protected the small merchants
over the hill. Naturally there
will be disagreement to this
statement but I have never
heard the small businessmen
over the hill scream so loudly
as when this country was taken
over by the present
government.
The P.L.P. seemed possessed
with one obsession and that
was to be rid of everything that
was U.B.P. orientated and this
meant changing the
complexion of Bay Street. To
accomplish this, they
permitted American business
to compete with local business,
and being the astute
businessmen that they are our
local folks, realising that the
decks were stacked, sold out
for fabulous sums and are
probably still receiving
royalties without any
headaches.
The P.L.P. promised to
relieve the tax burden on the
Bahamian people. I'll give two
personal examples. When the
present government took office
in 1967 I was then paying
approximately $16 a year for
property tax. The P.L.P.
government reduced this in
1973 to $130.50! 1 was paying
in the neighbourhood of $58
r electricity in 1967, the
S..P. government in 1973
reduced this to $118. This has
been the story of all the
commodities that are necessary
for the survival of the average
Bahamian. And because
government has been able to
reduce our taxes they thought
it unwise for the private sector
of business to raise wages.
Government has repeatedly
said there would be no income
tax and in their seven years in
office this is the only promise
they have kept, they changed
the name to National
Insurance. Who is going to be
hurt? Why the Bahamian
people of course. Who is
government going to compete
with? The Bahamas business
community naturally. My
reason for saying that
Bahamians will suffer because


of National Insurance is due to
the fact that the timing is bad
and a great number of
Bahamians have insurances
which they have had for a
number of years and may have
to let lapse because they
cannot keep up two and this
money will go down the drain.
And of course there is a
number of persons who need
the kind of insurance that
government is issuing like they
need another head. Personally.l
have nothing against
contributing to my country
whether it's financial or
otherwise but I'll be damn if
I'll willingly contribute to
anything that will only benefit
a few people.
Government needs to do more
explaining on how this social
security will work. It is true
that they raised the old age
pension to $22. a month, but
the fact remains that since this
is a young nation, and the
people will be contributing to
this scheme for a long time
before becoming eligible for
benefits, it stands to reason
that our old folk should start
this ball rolling by getting
something worthwhile which
would give contributors
something to look forward to,
and I don't want to hear the
minister responsible for this
mess say they are not entitled
to anything because they have
made no contribution either.
What I am concerned about
is who will manage this fund.
There has been some talk
about investing this money,
but in its seven years of
existence, government has
done nothing to prove it has
the capacity to properly handle
the affairs of this country and
it is my feelings that National
Insurance will be no exception
to their performance. The facts
are there if one wants to see
that this government took over
an economic gpid mine and in
seven short years reduced it to
a hand-to-mouth operation
where they have to borrow
each month through treasury
bills to meet their
commitments.
To put this more clearly,
when a worker gets his pay on
Saturday and has to borrow
from his boss on Wednesday
things are tough, but when a
government is reduced to this
same level this is a serious
matter and how long the P.L.P.
government can continue to
function under this kind of
management remains to be
seen. People seemed shocked at
the announcement that
government will eventually
take over the operation of the
casinos. Frankly I don't know
why anyone should feel that
way. Government has
exhausted every avenue that
was available for borrowing
money and the only remaining
avenue that appears to be
glittering leads to the casinos in
Freeport and on Paradise
Island. It makes no difference
to them whether they can
operate the casinos or not, and
they don't give five hoots
whether the best interest of the
people are being served. The


majority of one with which to gain control of the country.
Mr. Pindling gained his support by giving him the Ministry of
Labour, thus divorcing him from the labour movement as a
leader.
You will recall that at the time Mr. Fawkes crowed that he was
now on the top of a mountain and I reminded him that the valley
was not far away. He soon found himself in the valley and
unwanted by the people of his constituency.

Readers of this column also know the Arthur Foulkes story.
Mr. Pindling was his political god ... but the day of .l w.kenimil'
came. And you know what happened to this young man.

The same story applies to the group led in and out of the
party by Paul Adderley and Orville Turnquest. In time they got
their dose. An extraordinary fact is ... like Leon McKinney ... Mr.
Adderley has gone back for a second dose. Maybe lie expects to
be the King Henry VIIl's bride who survived the nuptial bed.

The same fate overcame Cecil Wallace Whitfield and the group
known as "The Dissident Eight" ... and only last week in the
House of Assembly Kendal Isaacs, leader of the Opposition, was
reminded of the time when he was more PLP-ish than Mr.
Pindling himself.

In most of these cases I warned these promising young men
what would happen to them if they laboured under the false
belief that they could convert an evil thing by becoming
associated with it. In each case they were served a bitter dose of
medicine by the man that they saw as the Moses of the people.
Today the nat.. -'-onomy is on the locks. Theie i-
confusion and disillusion..ent everywhere... the people don't
know where to turn ... who to trust.
Thousands of people are unemployed.. and they see no hope

How the North Star made .


a flying piece of history


IT TOOK Christopher
Columbus a two-month voyage
to the West Indies to discover
the Bahamas in 1492.
That was maritime history.
Aviation history also occurred
in the Bahamas, back in 1948,
25 years ago and 456 years
after Columbus.
That was the year Air
Canada rediscovered the
tropical eden and included it as
the very first jewel of its new
Caribbean necklace.
This winter, Air Canada and
the Bahamas are celebrating
their Silver Jubliee.
It was on December 3. 1948,
that a 40-passenger Air Canada


aircraft made an official
landing at Oakes Field in the
Bahamas, completing the initial
leg of an inaugural run that was
to link Nassau to Kingston in
Jamaica and Port of Spain in
Trinidad. Flying time: 15
hours from Montreal via
Toronto, in Canada.
Thus was inaugurated Air
Canada's Caribbean run. The
new service was predictably
heralded by government
officials and the press as an
event of utmost touristic and
commercial importance that
would accelerate trade and
change the whole lifestyle of
Canadians.


They did not use the word
"lifestyle" back in 1948. But
then other words were
different too, such as the
islands being named British
West Indies.
And Air Canada in those
days was called Trans-Canada
Air Lines, and jet airplanes
were yet to become something
more than a dream.
A dream come' true,
however, was the opening of
the sun-drenched tropics to
snow-bound Canadians. It
meant exchanging snow for
sand, pine trees for palm trees,
ice banks for coral reefs and
fur coats for beach robes.
For Air Canada, the
dream-come-true of flying to
those islands in 1948 was
rendered possible through the
use of equipment whose
prestigious name has also
disappeared from the airline
industry's vocabulary the
North Star.
Call it the North Star or the
DC-4M2. By whatever tag it
was known, it was a
tremendous aircraft in its day,
though perhaps a little noisy
by modern standards, and
served Air Canada well from
November 1947 until its final
retirement in 1961.
The North Star, a modified
version of the Douglas DC-4,
had two special characteristics.
It was Canadian-built by
Canadair in Montreal, and it
was the first pressurized,
four-engine aircraft to go into
service with Air Canada.
A welcome addition to Air
Canada's fleet of DC-3s and
tiny Lockheed 10A Electras, it
soon entered transatlantic
service.
But now the North Star was
due for a change of climate.
After plodding over the cold
waters of the North Atlantic, it
would finally throb through
the irridescent Caribbean skies.
The inaugural flight to
Nassau was not its first contact
with the Bahamas. The North
Star had been there before,
first on a technical survey, then
on a pre-inaugural flight.
The survey flight left
Toronto October 25, 1948,
and returned November 1. It
brought a team of 40 highly
specialized people on a
working tour of the region over
which future flights would


paved the way for the next
step the pre-inaugural flight.
The pre-inaugural North Star
arrived at Nassau on November
25. It was filled with
government, officials, business
leaders, news representatives
and officers of the airline all
of whom were fully prepared
for the "hazards" awaiting
them in the unknown West
Indies. In fact, they were
over-prepared.
"Few of us had ever gone
down south before," recalls
Don McLeod, Air Canada's
director of public relations,
"and the doctors shot us full of
every type of inoculation
possible. Our arms were
swollen during the whole
six-day trip."
Among the pre-inaugural
passengers was Deputy
Postmaster-General W. J.
Turnbull, who carried letters of

By DAPHNE WALLACE WHITFIELD
OBVIOUSLY a reviewer of amatuer theatre in the Bahamas
cannot use the same measuring stick that would be used for a
professional production on Broadway.


This is not patronising. It is
realistic. It would be patently
ridiculous to expect the same
standards of professionals in a
population of 205 million with
tremendous theatrical facilities
with Bahamian productions
put on by amateurs with full
time jobs in a city with a
population of 110.000 and
virtually no theatrical facilities.
Despite this I think one
would be hard pressed to find
any other community of our
size with as much potential
talent as there is in Nassau.


seen and therefore I've got not
way of gauging his
development and maturity as a
playwright.
"They Raisin The Flag Now
Mama" opened Thursday night
at the Dundas Civic Centre and
played through Sunday.
EXCITING
It was a tremendously
exciting night. Beautifully
authentic old Bahamian
dialogue combinedd with
voracious, authoritative and
incisive comments on the social
scene.


REVIEW OF 'THEY RAISIN'
THE FLAG NOW MAMA'


It my reviews of theatre
productions in Nassau lack the
ascerbity for which critics are
generally renowned it is
because I find something
valiant in ex'rn the most
modest theatre efforts here.
lHowever, I am going to
subject P. Anthony White,
professional writer and author
of the play "Ihey Raisin The
Flag Now Mania", to the most
critical scrutiny of which I am
capable. For Mr. White is a
professional and to do less than
this would be an insult to him.
Although Mr. White has
written several other plays
which have been produced in
New York and in Nassau
"They Raisin The Flag Now
Mama" is the first that I've


Yet, beyond what Mr. White
refers to (in all the other
Bahamian plays that have hit
the theatre scene in recent
years) as "the unmistakable
elements of Bahamiana",
"They Raisin The Flag Now
Mama" contains elements that
supercede the Bahamian
situation in 1972. It also deals
with universal and eternal
themes of love, loyalty, the
pain of adolescence, the
generation gap, hope, despair,
innocence and cynicism.
I shall return to elaborate on
the above two paragraphs and
illustrate them with examples
of the wealth of dialogue
contained in the play later on
in this review.
Meanwhile I am going to


Little characterization in



fine,thought-provoking play


deal with what appeared to me
to be weaknesses.
I thought the
characterization was weak.
There were certain characters
in the play who purported to
be caricatures e.g., the Police
Inspector, the Politician and
these were handled beautifully,
both by the author and the
actors.
On the other hand the main
characters in the play
Hubert, the seventeen year old
grandson and beautiful,
wonderful Grandma both
purported to be real flesh and
blood individuals although
vehicles for expression of the
very stuff of life didn't quite
ring true.
Grandma was all the good
and wonderful and nobel and
pathetic Bahamian grandmas
rolled into one rather than just
being Hubert's Grandma. Also,
I had a distinct impression that
Grandma was an anachronism
that she was not a Grandma
in Nassau in 1972 but a
throwback to an earlier day.
The Grandmas that I see selling
conch fritters &c ... on all the
great holiday events in Nassau I
see dressed in their Sunday
best whereas Hubert's
Grandma was right out there at
Clifford Park on the eve of
Independence with an old scarf
wrapped round her head
(something she would very
likely have worn at home or in
her petty shop on a normal
workaday but on this
ceremonial occasion graced by
the Prince of Wales (and
Grandma was a royalist)
never!
Al THIINTIC
Grandma was brilliantly
played by Claudette Allen on
Thursday night and sIhe
handled the authentic old
Bahamian dialogue with
perfect faith to her role.
Hubert again, sensitively and
movingly played on Thursday
night by Earl Lightbourne, was
again, I believe, an
idealized picture of a
talented, deprived and sensitive
boy. Initially, 1 thought hie too
was an anarchronismi too
innocent and too self-depriving
for a seventeen year old
Government School student of
1972. On further reflection
(and to be honest the play is
deserving of more than just an


overnight reflection and a
review written under pressure
of other tasks to be
accomplished) I don't think
Hubert ever did exist either
today or yesteryear.
Hubert is able to verbalise
things no boy of seventeen ever
verbalised. But, then of course
tiis is poetic licence.
Threatened by all the powers
that be, being responsible for
his grandmother. he calls out in
anguish to his never present
father: "Daddy, Daddy. Why
can't you come'? I can't handle
this (alone).
lie is verbalising what many
other adolescent boys without
a supportive father need. But
whether any seventeen year
old, no matter how much more
endowed than his
contemporaries, would
specifically recognize this need
at the appropriate moment of
need is another matter. In the
real world this need would, I
think, be re-channelled into a
medium that only an acutely
understanding observer would
be able to interpret as the need
for his father.
NOT REALISTIC
Again, the way he met The
politician hea.l on, albeit
courteously, is not the action
of an immature boy even if
that boy happens in many
ways to be mature beyond his
years.
An encounter between a
seventeen year old boy and a
Member of Parliament, even
though the former be more
intelligent would in reality be a
sort of series of minor
skirmishes with the boy
making little tests of verbal
combat rather than a straight
confrontation.
The only time I really saw
Hubert as the seventeen ye ar
old real flesh and blood boy
that he was supposed to be was
when his cynical, sophisticated,
middle class school mate
accuses him of weeping and he
laughs and jerks round with a
realistic bravado and says:
"Cry me'?"' in a marvellously
faked tone.
Hubert's mother didn't ring
true to me either. Unless she
was an alcoholic, a fallen
woman (of probably not much
more than thirty-five) would
not be the dirty, doddery old


hag in high-topped tennis with
the rag tied round her head at
Clifford Park on the eve of
Independence in the play.
There was no indication that
she was an alcoholic and, on
the other hand if she was, it is
unlikely that she would have
the regular compulsion to go
and look at her son. I could
only see her as a believable
character in a Victorian
context certainly not in a
modern Bahamian context.
RIPFTITION
On occasions there was some
repetition of ideas and themes
that was unnecessary as they'd
originally had plenty of impact
making the elaboration
excessive and slowing down
what was potentially a fast
moving play in spite of the
waiting (from 8 p.m. 'til
midnight) context of the
play. Two further comments
about the play I am not
familiar with the writer's other
plays so I might be way out of
line.
But there are more than two
kinds of women the
grandmas, dependable, caring
and the mother and Sherry
(the mother in a more
privileged social and economic
position a generation later?-
the "hbad" women.


without losing any of its sting.
The politician, in spite of his
affair with a sixteen year old
girl, in spite of using his
authority to manipulate the
Inspector (this was superbly
subtle yet drew immediate
recognition from the audience)
was not without redeeming
qualities charm and some
sort of loyalty to an old school
friend whom he'd left far
behind.

his weight around against a boy

REVIEW
From Page 8
and an old blind lady and
know-towing to the M.P., was a
very human portrayal.
Underlying the social
commentary and the events is
the main theme of the Love of
Hubert for his grandmother.
His concern for his own
situation relieves the portrayal
of this relationship from being
surgery. In any case, there was
no danger of this with
Grandma's almost acidic
humour.
When Hubert questions his
grandmother about the love
between her and his
grandfather she tells him that
they never used to call it that in
those days. They were more
concerned with respect and
getting along. But admittingly
added "That's what the white
folks called love."
GENERATION GAP
The generation gap only
existed superficially between.
Hubert and his grandmother.
He is able to explain present
events to her in reference to
her past experiences.
When Hubert is brought face
to face with the facts of life in
today's Bahamas: "You have
to be somebody, or know
something about somebody"
(to get anything) he identifies
with his grandmother. "There's
something wrong with all that.
You're too old and I'm too
young to figure all that out".
Hubert's cynical school mate
Sherry, (played by Janet Davis)
is the verbal foil for his hope
and ideals.
The raising of the flag to
Hubert represents hope of a
new beginning. "After tonight
everything will change.
Everything will be brand new".
The raising of the flag is even
in Hubert's mind tied up with
his father's longed-for return
(illegitimacy is regularly
referred to in the play). "By
that time (the flag raising)
Daddy will be here and
everything will be alright".
Sherry of the middle-class
represents the cynical and
realistic view. And yet
expresses the desire that this
could have been a meaningful
experience. "I don't care but I
wish that I did".


I perceived a D. H. Lawrence
influence in'one aspect of the
play. Cynical; sophisticated
Sherry teaches good, innocent
Hubert to say the four letter
word that has been forbidden.

INSPECTOR NIXON attempts to throw his weight around at the expense of a school boy and an
old blind lady, but he is almost bested by the logical reasoning of Hubert and the blackmailing of
Grandma "who knows something about somebody" which enables her to survive in an unjust society.

and David Pratt as the Police Constable. Photo: Philip Symonette.


He hates to do it for to him it
represents all the sordid aspects
of ghetto life which Sherry has
not experienced.
TREMENDOUS
His hopelessness and disgust
as his awareness of how things
really are in society mounts to
a tremendous crescendo at the
end of the 3rd Act and all his
anger, frustration and feelings
of deprivation, are vented by
his shrieking of this word, not
in Sherry's inappropriate
context, but as a deep
emotional expression.
Inadvertently, or perhaps not
inadvertently, she has taught
him a salutary catharsis.
The play ends with Grandma
dying just before the flag
raising and the reappearance of
the abandoning mother the
Bahamian flag for the Union
Jack and the mother for
grandma. Grandma's death at
the appropriate dramatic
moment was an excellent
climax but the play sort of
petered out for the last few
minutes. The last Act lacked
the stupendous dramatic
climax of the third Act.
I only regret that the
concentration on a new play
by a Bahamian playwright has
left me little space to devote to

and director Fritz Stubbs

Thmesday, December 18,1973


By Abigail Van Buren
1973 by ChtCate Tribune-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: A husband complained because his wife
came to bed every night with her hair wrapped in toilet
paper and she covered the whole thing with a ridiculous-
looking nightcap.
Well, so do I! But I have no reason to go to bed looking
pretty. My husband has such a pot gut, I couldn't get
within a foot of him if I wanted to, which I certainly do
not. You see, he rarely bathes, and he always comes to bed
with a sour beer breath. I think you get the picture.
A few years back I found someone who could have
made my life complete, but I gave him up, hoping my
marriage could be saved. What a fool I w:is!
In the meantime, I keep my hair looking nice, and if I
ever get another chance, I won't pass it uip.

Look what this loveboat has to say on that subject:

sprays herself sweet, and puts on a fancy nightgown, but
you can bet her hair is always wrapped in toilet paper and
covered with a silly little nightcap. HitI \l c;ires'. I don't
look at her hair in bed.
The next morning she showers, puss n lipstick, whips
off the toilet paper and cap. and her hairdo is perfect.

obviously was barking up the wrong tree when I consulted
him. You seem to be well boned up on the subject. Are you
interested in fielding an occasional inquiry?

DEAR ABBY: With the cost of living up so high, and
four children to support, plus the fact that we have had
layoffs and illness in our family this last year, my husband
and I decided that we would not exchange Christmas gifts
with the relatives.
We sent letters to all our relatives explaining the situa-
tion. Since then we have had one set of grandparents and
two sisters tell us that they still intend to buy Christmas
gifts for our children.
Would it be proper for us to refuse the gifts? PUZZLED
DEAR PUZZLED: No. Accept them graciously. There
is joy in giving as well as in receiving, so why deny that
pleasure to those who want to give?

Howe, which were presented to
the governor of the Bahamas,
Sir William Murphy.
The flight was heralded in a
grand manner by Bahamas
officials and the local press: "A
hearty welcome, a full measure
of co-operation and our best
wishes to TCA," proclaimed
Harold Christie, chairman of
the Bahamas Development
board. "Welcome Canadians!
Welcome, North Star! Good
Luck, Trans-Canada!," echoed
the Nassau Guardian.
Twenty-five years have
passed since then and during
that time the number of
Canadians who have flown via
Air Canada to its original
Caribbean destinations has
increased .... 25 times.
In the first month of
scheduled operation, the North
Stars carried 118 passengers to
Nassau. The total increased to
269 passengers for the first two
months.
Last winter, the passenger
volume for the same two
months to Nassau reached
3,640. For the whole winter
season. November to April, it
totalled 1 1,665. Total Bahamas
southbound traffic, including
Freeport, reached 16,464.

a successful heart finesse will

How, then, should South play?

At trick two, they laid down

By IVAN JOHNSON


BRIAN GOTTFRIED, the
men's singles No. I seed cruised
into the semi-finals of the
S 1 2.500 Bahamas International
Tennis Open when he defeated
Norman Holmes 6-3, 6-3, in
the quarter finals yesterday at
the Ocean Club courts,
Paradise Island.
Although he had to work
hard against an industrious
Holmes. Gottfried was always
in command and his disposal of
Holmes' lobs with superb
overhead smashes was a sight
to be seen.
In the first set, Gottfried
broke serve in the 4th and 7th
games before winning the first
set with two unretrievable
smashes in the 9th.
Holmes took the lead for the
first time in the match in the
second set when he broke
Gottfried's serve in the third
game and moved into a 2-1
lead.
Holmes hung on at 3-3 until
Gottfried took the next three
games giving a magnificent
exhibition of smashes and
the set 6-3.
Vitas Gerualitis, the No. 5
seed beat Armstead Nealy, 6-2,
'AN 4-6, 6-4, to gain a place in
No. 7 today's semi-finals.


Nealy could not produce the
form he had shown on Sunday
when he beat the No. 2 seed
Clark Graebner but Gerualitis
had to fight all the way.
Playing on Nealy's weaker
backhand the fleetfooted
Gerualitis took the first set 6-2
as he displayed the best
volleying at the net seen so far
in the tourney.
After breaking serve in the
second game of the second set
Nealy took a commanding lead
at 4-2.
Gerunalitis recovered to 4-4
but Nealy held his serve in the
9th game and then broke serve
in the 10th to win the set 6-4.

0-0.
Paradise found themselves
playing against a weakened
Arawaks team and pressed
throughout the match.
Mike Thompson. Martin
Deane and Krishna Ramnardce
were very effective in their
passing and gave the Ardwaks
defence much difficulty
Keith Ford and Keith Parker
wer outstanding for Arawaks as
they constantly harassed the
Paradise forwards.
Eric Mahabir made several
good saves especially in the
second half as Deans,


Thompson and Ramnarace
slammed wa-ll-placed shots.
Sunday's game saw Paradise
"A" draw with Buccaneers,
2-2.
Paradise's fast-moving
front-line was always a con-
stant threat. The Bucs
must thank Colin Cameron for
good goal-tending, and Hugh
Hawkins for his excellent
tackling and passing
interceptions
Danny Price scored in his
own goal to give the Bucs a 1-0
lead Dwight Watkins then
equalized for Paradise
