Bleak


By MIKE LOTHIAN

PRIME MINISTER Lynden
Pindling said last night that
despite Government efforts to
minimise the effects, the
world-wide fuel shortage might
cause this winter's tourist
season to be bleak indeed.
The warning came as a
sideline to Mr. Pindling's main
theme squarely taking on the
issues of unemployment,
violence, corruption, casino
gambling and loyalty as he
backed the candidacy of PLP
nominee Sinclair Outten in the
up-coming St. Barnabas
by-election. He dealt also with
Mr. Outten's nomination,
which has itself become an
issue.
The Prime Minister was in
good speaking form last night
at the Actklins, Crooked Island
and Long Cay Association hall
on East Street and Cordeaux
Avenue, the southeastern
corner of the St. Barnabas
constituency. The nominations
had only just been returned by
noon yesterday.

not start his address until after
11 p.m., because the meeting
started long after the scheduled

PLP supporters who turned up
for the meeting were willing to

A GRADING SYSTEM for
hotels has been recommended
by 'Free National Movement
Leader Kendal Isaacs as a
means of attracting quality
tourists back to the Bahamas.
In making the Opposition's
principal address on the Budget
yesterday, Mr. Isaacs outlined
his party's economic policy
should it become the
government of the day.
He placed particular
emphasis on tourism, which he
saw as the continuing mainstay
of the economy for some time,
but argued that the Ministry of
Tourism should revise its
present advertising thrust to
appeal to the monied market.
One way of doing this, he
said, was by grading hotels.
"We feel that by grading hotels
a visitor will know when he
goes into a luxury hotel that he
can demand and expect certain
amenities and service.
"If these standards are
maintained, then we predict
that we would recapture the
quality tourist market that we
once had years ago."
Mr. Isaacs pointed out that
the tourist was a prize being
sought after by every country
in the western world, and now
also by eastern countries.
BETTER PACKAGE
"In order to succeed we
must offer a better package
not necessarily a cheaper
package at a fair price. We
must also strive to seek quality
in the tourists we attract. By
this we mean tourists with
more money who intend to
stay in the Bahamas longer,"
he said.

Mr. Isaacs recommended
that the government launch a
two-pronged attack in its
advertising to revive the quality
business while continuing to
retain sufficient cheaper traffic
to provide a foundation.
Although government
anticipated that the energy
crisis would affect the tourist
business as well as the whole
economy, the Opposition
Leader noted that the Bahamas
had always succeeded in
turning past crises to its
advantage.
He wondered if the fact of
the fuel shortage would not
bring more tourists to the
sunshine, and urged the
Minister of Tourism to look
into this aspect.
At the same time he
speculated that with industry
in colder climates being
affected more investment
money might be attracted to
the Bahamas.
Three factors would have to
be evaluated however in
attracting the longer-stay
visitor.
Mr. Isaacs listed these as the
attitude of the average


Nassau and Bahama IslanIs Leadinir Newananer


- - -- -a- a~


Bahamian, the availability of
activities and the preservation
of what remains and the
restoration of what there was
"of our unique Bahamian
scene."
The Bahamian, he said, had
to be educated to the
importance of the tourist
dollar. It was necessary that all
of us recognize this and work
together to see that the right
attitude existed towards the
industry.
It was important to
recognize that service was not
degrading, he added.
Mr. Isaacs recommended as
some possible tourist
amenities, art galleries where
old prints could be displayed, a
museum, restoration of Fort
Charlotte, verbal and financial
support of the aquarium and a
more attractive Bay
Street. By including visitors
to return government could cut
down on the cost per head of
bringing tourists to our shores.
Emphasizing revitalization
of the economy as top priority,
Mr. Isaacs said this could only
be achieved by the
re-establishment of confidence


DOMESTIC


In order to make the moa
effective use of locally
available fuel supplies, a policy
for aviation fuel allocation
within the Bahamas has been
prepared by government after
consultation with airlines and
fuel suppliers.
This policy was outlined in
the House yesterday by
Tourism and Aviation Minister
Clement Maynard.

for


in the government.

Allied with tourism he
envisioned large-scale
construction associated with
the building of new resorts,
particularly in the Out Islands.
But such construction was
only possible in a thriving
economy, and the
government's taxation
measures only served to
strangle the economy even
more.
"While the economy is in a
slump we need to give the
people relief to encourage
investment. Only then will we
move towards revitalization.

JOHN C. DAVIS DIES
JOHN C. DAVIS, 72, died at
his home on George Street this
morning.
A former member of the
Eisenhower administration he
was an acknowledged expert
on the economics of
agriculture and came to the
Bahamas following a bad auto
accident in 1940.


SERVICES TO GET


Jet fuel priority will go first
to the scheduled domestic
services, which would include
Bahamasair's internal services
as well as Flamingo's
Nassau/Mayaguana and Inagua
service.
Second priority will go to
Bahamasair and other
scheduled international
carriers' services.

CANCELLED BOOKINGS HAVE

STARTED ROLLING IN, HE SAYS


times for the whole world. He
noted that just this week
British Prime Minister Edward
Heath predicted that this
winter in Britain will be the
worst since 1942, at the height
of the Second World War. He
said England was being hit by
the fuel shortage and by strikes
by coal miners and dock
workers.
He said Eastern Airlines in
the U.S. is laying off 3,000
employees.
Continuing, he referred to
the recent three-hour wild-cat
strike by workers in eight
major hotels on New
Providence and Paradise Island.
"If I was still advising the
unions," Mr. Pindling declared,
"I would say this is a bad time
for a move. There's no telling
what's going to happen in
1974."
He re erred to tourism as the
"life-blod" of the nation.
"Up t4 November bookings
for the i973/74 winter season
were e ellent, but by the
middle of December the
cancellations started rolling in,
because people don't know if
they can get here. And, if they
could get here, they don't
know whether they can get
back home."
He pointed out that federal
fuel allocations for aviation in


the U.S. gave priority first to
scheduled carriers, and second
to charter operations.
HALF OUR TRADE
And he asserted that "half
our business" comes by
charter.
"This is no situation the PLP
created, but this is what we
face," he said.
If charters are very seriously
affected then hotels would be
half-empty and employers
would need fewer staff as a
result.
"That is where we are. We
are going to try to do everything
we can to preserve the
situation as best we could. We
have got some plans.
"We took some decisions on
Monday and on Tuesday."
Referring to local aviation
fuel allocations announced in
the House Wednesday morning,
Mr. Pindling added that "the
Minister of Tourism has his
directions.
"We don't know what will
happen, but we couldn't sit
back and do nothing; we have
got to act."
Opening on the issue of
election violence the Prime
Minister went on: "What is the
FNM's position on violence?
Bamm, bamm, that's their
position.
"Any man woman or child


can say what they like about
the PLP, but we never sat in no
upstairs room and planned to
burn or shoot anybody.
"Even the FNM say that
happened, but they say 'that
was not us'. But the names
were. Up to the middle of
September it was 'us.' Next
morning it was 'them.' And the
only thing that happened in
between was the sunset.
CORRUPTION
"What is more corrupt," Mr.
Pindling asked, "than when you
eat with a fella, sleep with him,
work with him, give him
employment, and then you
send for him, bring him
upstairs, have a preliminary
investigation, put him in some
transportation, take him to a
quiet spot and hold a formal
trial and then execute him -
then play like nothing
happened, give the widow a
cheque and send for the TV
cameras for the funeral?
"We are talking about
corruption now," he
continued.
He said people accuse the
Government of corruption, but
they never come up with
specific charges.
Taking on the gambling
issue, Mr. Pindling made it
clear that his Government did
not, as some believe, intend to


take over the premises of
existing casinos.
"We are not talking about
the places," he said we are
talking about the licence.
He said casinos were in
effect operating on a lease and
when the licences expire theni
the lease is over."
He said there was no
intention of taking the
licensee's premises tables and
equipment.
"If we want them we are
going to have to pay for
them," he said.
He warned the party
supporters not to be under the
impression that the FNM is
opposed to gambling.
He said the only difference
between PLP and FNM policy
on the issue was that the FNM
wanted the casinos to remain
in private hands.
"You have to decide
whether you should own it or
the foreign fella should own
it."
Taking another swipe at the
opposition, the Prime Minister
asked "what is the FNM
position on marijuana?
"All I know is that when in
1971 the Government
introduced the bill (increasing
penalties for marijuana
possession) several members of
the FNM advocated legalising
marijuana.
"Anytime you see any
candidate whose eyes turned
red and he talk loud, watch
out. It may be just a little shot
of scotch, or it could be Mary

Tuesday.
A report of a sunken car in
about 15 to 20 feet of water
at the artificial island by a
35-year-old fishing enthusiast,
Mrs. Merle Teresa Bullard of
Dean Street, led to the
discovery.


In ternational charter
carriers, including Bahamas
World Airlines will be given
third priority, and general
aviation, including corporate or
private jets or turbine aircraft
will be considered fourth.

All grades of aviation
gasoline will be distributed in
the following order:
Bahamasair (scheduled
domestic charter operations);
scheduled international
carriers; domestic charter


operators: foreign charter
operators and general aviation.
PRIORITIES

"Fuel should be allocated by
each supplier in accordance
with the priorities given," Mr.
Maynard said. In effect this
would mean that after the
requirements for scheduled
domestic services are met, the
balance of fuel available will be
allocated by each supplier to
its various contracted
customers in accordance with


its contractual obligations.
Any balance after such
allocations have been made will
be made available by each
supplier to meet the
requirement of its contracted
customers over and above the
contractual levels, or of its
other customers, always in
accordance with the priorities
given.
Mr. Maynard said that
special note should be taken of
fuel supplies required for
air/sea rescue services as those
performed by BASRA.


More 'no shows' on airlines,


DESPITE the drastic
curtailment of airline flights,
the psychological impact of the
energy crisis has been to
increase the percentage of no
shows on many of the world's
airlines in the past few days.
The surprise disclosure was
made Wednesday by Tourism
Minister Clement Maynard in a
Communication to the House
on this government's allocation
of aviation fuel.
Pointing to the possible
repercussions on the country's
tourism industry, the Minister
said that in addition to the
cut-back in flights, the
psychological impact of the
crisis upon potential travellers
was also acting as a deterrent.
Many people, he said, were
reluctant to make plans in view
of the uncertainty of airline
schedules and the possibility of
over-crowded flights.
IRONIC
"Ironically this fear has led
to an increasing percentage of
no shows on many of the
world's airlines in the past few
days and even though
schedules have been drastically
curtailed, load factors have not
gone up, as the total number of
passengers has declined," Mr.
Maynard pointed out.
This obviously would affect
hotel occupancy. His Ministry,
he said, would make every
effort to minimize adverse
effects of this type by


says Maynard


maintaining close contact with
the travel industry abroad
through its overseas offices to
notify them of the true
conditions of travel and space
availability in the Bahamas.
While the Bahamas, as a
non-manufacturing nation
would no doubt be spared
some of the trials of its
neighbours, it would not
escape entirely from the
adverse effects of the fuel
crisis, Mr. Maynard said.
With specific regard to the
tourism industry Mr. Maynard
advised the House that during
the past two weeks he had held
discussions with representatives
of a number of the country's
major and charter airlines as
well as with officials of various
aviation fuel suppliers.
"The extent of the shortage
and its ultimate impact on
flights to and from and within
the country cannot even now
be fully determined," the
Minister cautioned.
CUT BACKS

He said his Ministry was
endeavouring to remain in
close contact with fuel
suppliers and airlines alike in
order to monitor the situation


and be in a position to forecast
the ultimate effects on the
Bahamas' tourist flow.
"Already some adverse
effects have been
experienced; BOAC has
cancelled nearly 25 percent
of its flights to the the
Bahamas this month and
substantial reductions of
service from Pan American,
Eastern Airlines an,'
International Air Bahama are
scheduled for January and
beyond."
Some charter services had
also been affected, he
continued. The situation was
not fully dependent upon the
level of fuel available within
the Bahamas.
In some cases, carriers were
unable to obtain sufficient fuel
for their outbound flights from
their points of origin.

"The bulk of the aviation
fuel utilised by BASRA would
be aviation gasoline rather than
jet fuel, and it is suggested that
fuel be made freely av:ilablt to
all aircraft when required to
conduct BASRA services
whether they be commercial or
pricate aircraft," the Minister
said.


'Fierce' tussle for tourists


THE BAHAMAS must
contend not only with the
effects of the fuel crisis on
travel but also with
"increasingly fierce"
competition for the tourist
dollar, Tourism Minister
Clement Maynard told the
House yesterday.
He pointed out that Mexico,
Venezuela and Brazil were
making massive efforts to be
felt in tourism, and both
Mexico and Venezuela were
now developing resorts on the
Caribbean Sea.
Haiti "a very attractive
island," was also being felt as
were some of the other
Caribbean islands.
Mr. Maynard said he now
understood that Cuba was once
again hoping to take its place
in the tourism field.
The fact was that the energy
crisis was affecting the


Bahamas' principal markets,
i.e. the U.S. and Canada and
also the growing European
market.
He reminded members that
90,000 visitors arrvied either
by private aircraft or yacht.
These would now find it
difficult to obtain fuel, which
would be a great loss to the
Family Island resorts in 1974.
SETBACKS
A fairly large percentage of
the country's visitors came by
charters and ITCs. These flights
would probably now be
cancelled because of the low
priority on fuel.
Meantime the car fuel
allotment for U.S. travellers
was going to be reduced by 50
per cent which would affect
those driving to Florida and
then flying to the Bahamas.
While there might be some


pluses, in that the Bahamas was
close and warm for those with
the money to travel, the
Minister nevertheless felt that
the minus factors outweighed
these.
He observed that tourism
employed nearly 50 per cent of
the Bahamian labour force and
was a real source of foreign
revenue. Mr. Maynard pledged
that he would do everything to
minimize the effects on the
industry of the present crisis.
Replying to Opposition
Leader Kendal Isaacs on the
cost per head of bringing visitors
here, Mr. Maynard said it cost
his Ministry $5.75 in 1968 and
$5.55 in 1973.
"Compared with other
countries in the Caribbean this
is not an inordinately high
figure," he said. The cost to
Jamaica in 1971 was $12.92
and $16.20 in 1972.


BAHAMASAIR 'DOING BETTER'


BAHAMASAIR, the
national flag-carrier, "is doing a
better job today than it was
doing some months ago,"
Tourism and Aviation Minister
Clement T. Maynard told
House members during the
budget debate Wednesday
afternoon.
At the PLP convention in
Freeport in October the
Minister bluntly termed the
airline's operation "appalling."


PMH eye wing ready and in use by


By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE THREE-STOREY
EXTENSION to the eye wing
at the Princess Margaret
Hospital will be completed and
in use by the time the Bahamas
celebrates the first anniversary
of independence on July 10
next year, Health Minister A.
Loftus Roker revealed
yesterday.
In statements during the
House debate on budget
appropriations for capital
development in 1974 and in a
subsequent discussion with The
Tribune Mr. Roker fully
explained the apparent lack of
any budget allocation for the
Eye Wing next year, and
several other points raised in a
Tribune story on Monday.


The Tribune reported that
according to the budget, the
Eye Wing, located on the
eastern boundary of the
hospital property, was
expected to cost a total of
$458,000 while the contract
let for its construction was for
only $378,000. Further, it was
pointed out, the budget
indicated that $35,000 would
have been spent on the project
by the end of this year and
that there was no allocation for
the project at all for 1974.
The report also stated that
only the steel skeleton was
complete and that "if the
budget is any indication that is
where the work will be
halted. It was also noted that
the budget indicated $3 million


would be spent on the main
extension to the hospital which
includes a new Out Patients
department on the western side
of the compound, and that
Government, according to the
budget anticipated having $3.8
million worth of work still to
be done on the project when
1974 is ended.
'FALSE'
On the floor of the House
Wednesday afternoon the
Health Minister termed the
report "false".
He said that, contrary to the
report that only the skeleton
was complete, construction
crews "are now working on the
second floor and by early next
year that extension will have
been completed, and it will be


in service by July, long ahead
of schedule."
Apparently by oversight, Mr.
Roker failed on the floor of
the House to explain how the
project would be paid for when
the item in the budget showed
no 1974 allocation.
The Tribune sent a message
to the Minister asking for
clarification of that point, and
in a subsequent discussion the
Minister said the cost of work
on the Eye Wing extension is
included in the $3 million
1974 allocation for the main
extension.
He said when he first
detailed his Ministry's plans to
expand the PMH facilities, on
April 26, 1972, the Eye Wing
extension was included in the


plans. (Tribune files confirm
that assertion.)
But since the original
statement, and up to October
this year, all further
Government statements have
dealt exclusively with the main
extension.
NEW PROJECT
So, the Minister said, when
in October the Government
signed a contract with
Guarantee Builders for the
construction of the Eye Wing
extension, everyone -
including the budget section of
the Finance Ministry -
thought it was a new project.
As a result, a new item was
included in the capital
estimates under the Health
Ministry. Mr. Roker said by the


The Minister said on
Wednesday:
"If we want a first-class
airline, it will take some time
to do it. But that is what we
are aiming for."
Many of the flag-carrier's
failings, he said, are
attributable to the fact that
"we have a small operation
doing a big job."
Other items mentioned by
the Minister included:


The length of stay of
tourists in the Bahamas "has
risen in the last one-year
period." He did not reveal the
current average length of stay,
but said it had risen from a low
of about four days.

"Something is afoot in
connection with the
establishment of a
centrally-located museum."
The Minister gave no details.


July 10,says Roker


time he noticed the error and
drew it to the attention of
Finance Ministry officials,
preparation of the budget
document was too far
advanced for change.
He said the item would
"disappear" in the 1975
budget.
Mr. Roker in a further
amplification made it clear that
in fact workmen have not only
poured the concrete floors on
the first two storeys of the new
building, but have also put in
partitions, walls and rough
plumbing.
REASONABLE
He conceded, however, that
the extension is difficult to see
because of surrounding trees
and other buildings, and that a


quick look, which could take
in only the top storey, would
leave the impression that
nothing was there but the steel
framework.
"The next phase of
construction is being held up
principally because we are not
satisfied that the contract price
is within the figure we had
estimated for that phase."

MADRID Assassins today killed
Adm. Luis Carrero Blanco, Spain's
premier and Gen. Francisco Franco's
closest associate. An explosion blew
Blanco's car 30 feet into the air.
A high-ranking police source said
the 70-year-old premier was
assassinated, but five hours after the
explosion the official police report did
not give the cause of the blast. The
premier's chauffeur and a bodyguard
also were reported killed.
A spokesman said there had been
an odor of natural gas at the scene of
the explosion, outside Carrero
Blanco's apartment house.
The spokesman said city engineers
were probing the rubble in the street
to determine the cause of the blast.

Hand over hijackers


to me, says Arafat


BEIRUT Palestinian
guerilla leader Yasir Arafat is
asking Kuwait to hand over the
five Arab gunmen who killed
32 people at the Rome and
Athens airports Monday so
they can "stand trial before a
Palestinian revolutionary
court," the pro-guerilla
newspaper Al Moharrer
reported today.
The paper said Arafat has


instructed the Kuwait office of
his Palestine Liberation
Organization to ask for the
extradition of the gunmen,
who flew to the Persian gulf
sheikdom in a hijacked West
German airliner and
surrendered Tuesday.
The Palestinian news agency

Bobby Darin is dead

LOS ANGELES Singer Bobby Darin died in Los
Angeles today after open heart surgery yesterday. He was
37.
A spokesman said yesterday's operation was necessary
because tests revealed the malfunctioning of an artificial
heart valve.
Darin's career was in the middle of a comeback after
falling from the height of the pop music world in the early
1960's.
He is best remembered for his recordings of Mack the
Knife, which sold two million copies, and Splish Splash
which he said he wrote in 12 minutes. (AP)



US call on gasoline


WASHINGTON U.S.
energy chief William Simon
today asked the driving public
to limit itself voluntarily to 20
gallons of gasoline per week.

But Simon avoided imposing
any mandatory gasoline
restriction

Hie said full public
co-operation with a 10-gallon
limit would make gasoline
rationing unnecessary. But he
will not have time to find out
how well it is working before
he and President Yx on make

the interrogation of the five
terrorists.
"PLO will also demand that
the gunmen be turned over to
the guerilla leadership after the
interrogation is over so that a
proper punishment be meted

The gunmen killed 30
people in a fire bomb attack on
a Pan American jetliner at the
Rome airport and shot an
Italian policeman to death
there. After the hijacked
Lufthansa plane landed in
Athens, they killed an Italian
hostage aboard the airliner.
Arafat apparently decided to
take action against the
terrorists because their victims
aboard the Pan American plane
included four Moroccan
government officials.
The Moroccan news agency
said the guerilla chieftain
telephoned King Hassan
Tuesday to express his regret.
"Arafta reaffirmed the
Palestine people's indignation
at this criminal act and
condemned an odious outrage
which hurts the just Palestinian
cause," the agency said.

Suspected terrorists freed


BELFAST The British
government announced today
the immediate release of 65
people interned as suspected
terrorists, but the move was
attacked by both Catholics and
Protestants.
The release was in line with
a promise made by Britain last
month at the time of the
establishment of a new
administration for the province
with both Catholics and
Protestants sharing power.
The government said an


unspecified number would be
freed from the Maze prison if
security conditions permitted.
It was announced that 63
Catholics and two Protestants
were being freed from among
the 455 interns in the Maze.
The Catholic-based Social
Democratic and Labour Party
said the number was "quite
inadequate." A spokesman for
the militant Protestant Ulster
Defense Association said: "It is
a diabolical disgrace an insult
for the loyalist people.'


Lawyer plays tape at party


WASHINGTON A lawyer
admitted in court that he
played a part of a White House
tape recording to six guests at a
cocktail party and said: "I
made a very foolish mistake."
William Dobrovir, a lawyer
for Ralph Nader in the milk


fund case, said he stood
in court "as a very embarrassed
man."
He said he had a cassette
copy of the tape in his pocket
when he went to a cocktail
party. He said he announced:
"I've got in my pocket the


hottest news item in town."
Then played about five
minutes of the tape "that's
about all."
One of the guests at that
party was a director for ABC
News, Kevin Delaney.
The news director told
network reporter David
Schoumacher about it on
Tuesday. The newsman said he
called Dobrovir.
Schoumacher said he
reminded Dobrovir that he had
played it at the party and said
the lawyer replied, "that was
just for fun."
U.S. District Judge William
Jones, hearing of the incident
through news stories, called
Dobrovir and Justice
Department lawyers in the
court for an explanation.
Irwin Goldbloom, an
attorney in the Justice
Department's Civil Division,
told the judge he had been told
guests came to the party
thinking in advance that the
tape would be played.
He asked Judge Jones for a
protective order on such
material and the judge said he
would sign such a decree.
But Jones said that if there
had been a violation of
professional responsibilities
"this court has an effective
way of proceeding" via the
committee on admissions and
grievances and that it would be
up to the Justice Department
to bring such action if it
chooses. (AP).

Franco's side during the 1936-39 civil
war and in the government since. He
had been vice-president since 1967.
He was born in a fishing village

-Kissinger

meets


Tho again

PARIS Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger met today
with Hanoi's Le Duc Tho to
discuss the failure of the
ceasefire agreement they
negotiated last winter to bring
peace to Vietnam.

American officials expected
Tho to renew North Vietnam's
demand for economic aid from
the United States.

U.S. officials indicated they
did not expect spectacular
results from the meeting.

Kissinger and Tho last met
June 11-13. That meeting, did
nothing to improve the
Vietnam situation.

Kissinger's schedule today
also included meetings with
French President Georges
Pompidou to discuss the
strained relations between the
United States and its European
allies, and with Finance
Minister Valery Giscard
d'Estaing to exchange views on
the economic effects of the oil
crisis and on world monetary
reform.


The Secretary of State also
was to meet with Algerian
Foreign Minister Abdelaziz
Bouteflika, and they are
expected soon to announce
resumption of diplomatic
relations between their
governments. Algeria broke
relations during the 1967
Arab-Israeli war.

Scores of ambulances and
fire engines raced to the crash
scene through streets dimmed
to save electricity in Britain's
energy crisis last night.
All rail routes westward
out of London were blocked
by the twisted wreckage.
Scotland Yard said nine
people were certified dead at
hospitals in London's western
outskirts. Another five bodies
were trapped in the wreckage.
The cause of the
derailment was not
immediately known. It came
as the capital was on the alert


after a series of bomb blasts
blamed on Irish extremists.
Officials of the state-run
British Rail system said they
understood the engine and
three coaches careened off
the line and overturned,

the fire engulfed their
apartment on the second floor

A man of courage

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
NEWS of the death in England of Sir Raynor Arthur as a result
of an accident while hunting, when he was thrown from his horse,
came as a shock to the Bahamian people who will remember him
as the governor during whose administration long overdue
reforms were achieved.
The news was especially painful to those amongst us who got
near enough to him to enjoy the pleasure of his warm friendship.
I don't think very many people got very close to this man
because he was a classical scholar ... and few Bahamians can lay
claim to great scholarship.
I enjoyed his friendship ... not on the basis of scholarship
because I am not a scholar ... but because of other rare qualities
be found in human relations.
He was a man of great courage ... and he also had the capacity
for warm and enduring friendship. When he gave anyone his
friendship it was not a casual thing ... not a matter of official
expediency ... but something that sank deep and transcended the
passage of time and separation.
He was the kind of man a friend knew ... whatever distances
may have divided them and whether they ever saw each other
again ... he carried him in his memory and his affections.

Sir Raynor inherited all the mistakes made by some of his
predecessors in office ... as well as the indifference of the Colonial
Office to the festering needs of a small colonial territory.
He came here at a time when the seeds of unrest were
germinating in the hearts of a people who had reached the point
in their development when they wanted their government to
secure for them a larger share in the good things of the island's
life ... or they would be pushed to seize these benefits by force.
During his administration of the colony, Sir Robert Neville
(1950-53) made a valiant effort to repair the damage of centuries
but he got no backing from the Colonial Office. Indeed, the
Colonial Office was annoyed that perhaps he had stirred the pot
just a little too much. But Sir Robert and Lady Neville carried
away with them the affection of a people who recognized in them
perhaps the first evidence of interest in Government House on
their behalf.
Sir Robert was followed by Lord Ranfurly (1953-56) who
tried to push the reform movement started by Sir Robert and
there is no doubt that Lady Ranfurly did a major job -for our
people in the Ranfurly Homes for Children and her Out Island-
Circulating Library which is still being carried on by General Sir
Dudley and Lady Russell. On her return to England Lady
Ranfurly established a Circulating Library that now covers the
entire British Commonwealth of Nations. The importance of this
work cannot be measured.
It was during the Ranfurly Administration that I succeeded in
breaking down the barriers of racial discrimination in the colony
with a resolution I succeeded in getting through two turbulent
meetings of the House.
At the time I headed the Bahamas Democratic League and
presented a number of petitions to the House for long overdue
reforms. Speaker Asa H. Pritchard referred all of them to a
catch-all committee of which I wasn't even a member. There they
were allowed to die a quiet death.
It was because of the waythese petition
It was because of the way these petitions were pigeonholed by
the reactionary ruling group in the House that I brought the
.anti-discrimination movement to the floor of the House in the
"form of a Resolution which forced an open debate on the
question. I
One of the last measures sent to the House by Lord
Ranfurly was a Labour Bill to replace the antiquated labour
legislation then on the Statute Books of the colony.
Lord Ranfurly talked with me about this Bill. He said that if
the reactionary elements in the House failed to pass this Bill ...
that would be the beginning of their end.
They rejected the Bill ... and if you look around the Bahamas
today you will see how correct Lord Ranfurly was in his estimate
of the situation.

When Sir Raynor took over the Administration of the colony
Randol Fawkes was stirring the flames of labour unrest on one
side ... and on the other the PLP was stimulating the political
consciousness of the coloured people by arousing deep rooted
feelings of racial oppression by the minority group who had
ruled the islands for generations.
Alter the racial barriers came down healthy progress was being
made towards developing a united Bahamian people but this was
riot good enough for the P.L.P. They wanted revenge.
The Old Guard rulers were sitting on dynamite and ... like all
entrenched privileged groups down through the centuries ... they
laughed to scorn any warnings that may have been sounded in the
hope that they might have the wisdom to lead reform and not
wait for its fury to seeep over them and consign them to the
region of forgotten things where all unwise people end up.
This is the condition Sir Raynor inherited when he took over
the reins of government in 1957 for a period of three years.
From the night the Labour Bill was rejected in the House the
undercurrent of unrest grew stronger and the situation steadily
deteriorated.
SEarly in 1958 I felt that the storm would break over a protest
raised by taxi drivers against government approval of a proposal
N allow the hotels to operate buses at the airport in
competition with the taxis.
SMy brother Eugene was then the Legal Adviser of the Taxi
onion. He ... and I in The Tribune ... did our best to help the taxi
m1en, but the political group that then controlled the government
were adamant. They closed their ears to all appeals to reason.
The taxi men struck their blow the day the new International
Airport ... still in use ... was opened. They blocked all avenues of
approach to and exit from the airport with
their cars. They closed the airportt for nearly two days ... and a


l hr Cribune


iminediatel\.
When Lennox Boyd landed at the airport he saw Arthur
F-oulkes taking pictures. Foulkes was then the News Editor of
7he Tribune. IHe asked Foulkes if he worked for me. Foulkes said
he did but when he told hin he wanted to get a message to me
Foulkes pointed to my son Bernard who was some distance away
at the airport. Lennox Boyd drove to where Bernard was standing
and told him he wanted to see me as soon as p .. ilee
I worked very closely with Lennox Boyd and Sir Raynor
during this period.

I have given you all this background material to record what 1
think may have been the high spot in Sir Raynor's public career. I
was present when Sir Raynor told Lennox Boyd that he would
not stand by and see this situation compromised. This mess, he
said. had to be cleaned up, once and for all. And if there was any
attempt at weak compromise, he would resign as Governor of the
Bahamas and tell the whole world the reason for his action.
These were the words of a nan of courage. No ordinary mani
would take such a bold stand when his whole life's career was on
the line.
Mr. Lennox Boyd pressured a frightened House of Assembly
into accepting modern labour legislation and all the reforms that
my B.D.L. had petitioned the House to do a year earlier but
which the House had seen fit to allow to die in a committee.
The only reform Lennox Boyd failed to press was woman's
sutffr.ie He told me that that was the one point on which the
U.B.P. would not yield.
At that time Mrs. Rufus Ingraham headed a movement that
demanded limited su flti _.-' for women.
I told him 1I felt he had made a mistake f'C, .lithe people,
having now found their power. would demand full woman's
w.Ii : within six months.
On his return to England Lennox Boyd wrote me to say that
his wife agreed with me,
At the opening of the next session of the I.': .;i-1 ,iire there was
a massive demonstration of women in the Public Square. They
took ,ver the Supreme Court and from the Chief Justice's bench
announced their demands for full woman's suffrage.
They got it.
* * * *
Incidentally, during the strike ... when P.L.P. leaders saw that
Randol Fawkes was grabbing all the headlines in the press ... they
joined him in the fight. But the labour movement had no
financial backing at that time and so many of the strikers wavered
when their families began to get hungry. At that point the strike
started to fizzle out ... and P.L.P. leaders beat a hasty retreat,
leaving Randol Fawkes holding the bag!

In 1960 a \ o.,untic) was conferred on Lennox Boyd and he is
now Lord Boyd of Merton. I still correspond with him.
But my relationship with Sir Raynor developed into a warm
and enduring f: iendship. Both he and Colonial Secreltar. Kenneth
Walmsley told me that without the support of The Tribune and
the success of my brother Eugene in keeping the electrical power
station fitncti.ning the government would have volla-pt-..d
** ** * * *
Sir Raynor was ALL MAN a mttan of courage with a high
sense of honour and fair play ... a man with a capacity for
friendship that was both rare and precious.
And I mighi add that in her appreciation of music and the
arts Ladv Arthur made an invaluable -,w i i ..i, to the culture
of the Bahamas with the establishment of the Bahamnas Music
Festival and the Nassau Operatic Society.

A THOUGIIT FOR TODAY
The purest treasure mortal times afford Is spotless reputation;
that away,
Men are but gilded loam-onpainted clay,
A jewel in a ten-tirmes-barr'd-up chest
Is a bold spirit in a loyal breast
Mine honour is my life: both grow in one;
Take honour from me and my life is done.

general strike was launched by Randol Fawkes who was then a
power with which to reckon.
Several months before this crisis developed I
wrote my friend Sir Alan Burns in London to advise him to warn
the Colonial Office that there would be serious trouble in Nassau
if they did not take a strong hand to relieve the pressures that
were then at the point of explosion.
, At that time Sir Alan was near to the people in the Colonial
Office. He was my contact in London. He got to the desk of the
Secretary of State any information I wanted to bring to the
attention of the authorities in the Colonial Office.
Sir Alan wrote me back to say that he had reported my
warning to the Colonial Office but they had dismissed the
information by saying that nothing was wrong in the Bahamas.
'".nly tourists happen there."
I wrote back to tell him that unless God Almighty intervened
tlere was going to be one hell of an explosion here.
Sir Allan had just received my letter when the lid blew off the
little ... and Sir Raynor Arthur found himself facing a general
strike. This was the result of the unbending attitude of the ruling
group in the House of Assembly.
I did not know Sir Raynor until this situation developed. I felt
it was the duty of The Tribune to help him weather the storm.
At the time my brother Eugene was chairman of the Bahamas
Electricity Corporation. It was realized that if the power station
failed the island would end up in a chaotic state and irresponsible
elements would get control of the government
I threw the whole force of The Tribune behind Sir Raynor and
nly brother moved to the power station for the duration of the
sge. Sir Raynor stood firm under the pressure.
Then I got a letter from Sir Alan Bums informing me that
Colonial Secretary Lennox Boyd was flying to the Bahamas to
assist Sir Raynor in settling the strike. He wanted to see me

small


with


the


Dart


IN THESE days of "think
small" as far as cars and
gasoline consumption go, the
1974 Dodge Dart is the answer
to a driver's prayer. The new
74's have arrived at Central
Garage in Oakes Field and are
available for inspection and a
test drive.
There are over a million and
a half Dart owners who have
already found the pleasures of
Dart's operating economy.
man oeuverability, interior
room and just plain value for
money. The car is small and
carries an equally small price
tag. The interior provides
plenty of room for six
passengers plus a large trunk.
The 111-inch wheelbase and
torsion-bar suspension make
Dart at home in city traffic or
on the highways. The unibody
construction and electronic
ignition which are standard
make Dart a very reliable car.
There are many models from
which to choose, from the
four-door sedan and custom
sedan to the sporty models -
the Swinger hardtop, Swinger
special hardtop, Sport coupe,
Sport rallye and the 360 Sport


coupe-
The Dart Sport is really
three cars in one. The sport is
an easy-to-handle compact
coupe but with more weight
and trunk space than the mini
cars. The optional sun roof
gives the sport the air of a
convertible. Or the Dart sport
can be turned into a cargo
carrier with the optional
fold-down rear seat. The space
allows items up to six and a
half feet in length to be stowed
easily.
The sportiest Dart of all is
teh 360 Sport which has a new
360-cc, four-barrel, dual
exhaust, V-8 engine as standard
equipment. It also has power
front disc brakes, a special
suspension and all-vinyl bucket


seats.
There are many reasons why
all Dodge cars including the
Dart are special. All the U.S.
engine factories have electronic
engine function testers to help
keep substandard engines out
of the cars before they are
sold. These testers check the
engines for correct exhaust
pressure pulses which is one of
the keys to a smooth-running,
dependable engine.


Dodge use electronics widely
in the production of the Darts.
electronic ignition, silicon
electronic voltage regulator.
optional electronic digital
clock and the factory-installed
optional electronic security
alarm system.
The electronic ignition
which is standard on every U.S.
Dodge car delivers up to 35
per cent more starting voltage
than conventional systems.
This gives a reliable start in any
kind of weather.
The Torqueflite transmission
is rugged and dependable.
There is no recommended fluid
replacement necessary or filter
replacement or band
adjustment under normal
driving conditions.
The torsion-bar suspension,
also standard on all U.S. made


Dodges, is more easily adjusted
than ecoventional coil springs.
In the unibody construction,
all body panels and structural
members are fused into one
unit by more than 4,000 tough
welds for strength and
durability.
Depending on the model,
foot-operated windshield
washers and two-speed wipers,
an outside left rearview mirror,
three-spoke steering wheel with
padded horn button.
Dodge Darts have all the
safety equipment an
anti-theft steering column lock,
backup lights, safety-rim
wheels, hazard warning light
system, head restraints,
energy-absorbing number
systems, padded instrument
panel and sun visors and many
more.
With the list of optional,
again depending on the model,
the buyer can almost build his
own car. Choose from several
1974 Dodge Dart offers as
standard, bench seats, bucket
seats, rear armrests, front and
rear ashtrays, either
colour-keyed rubber floor mats
or carpeting, cigarette lighter, a
keyless door locking system,
engines, various seat styles and
upholstering, manual or


automatic transmission, power
steering, a sliding sun roof, all
sorts of radios and stereo
systems, and many roof
treatments to mention just a
few.

THE BAHAMAS ADULT STUDY CENTRE held Graduation
Exercises on Friday December 14 at the Gleneagles Hotel. The
graduating classes the Primacel group, the Course in Human
Communication and the Dressmaking and Dress Design classes -
were out in force, despite the cool night air, and with their guests
brought the attendance up to nearly 200.


Mrs. Sylvia Crawford, wife
of principal Richard Crawford,
was emcee for the evening, and
after she had given the address
of welcome, the gathering was
addressed by the three guests
of honour. In accordance with
established custom at the
Centre, each of these speakers
was a past graduate. First, Mrs.
Deanne Fitzgerald spoke on
the increased educational
opportunities open to the
Bahamians of today, and the
importance of taking full
advantage of them.
She was followed by Mr.
Henry Francis. whose theme
was "Crisis and Challenges,"
which he dealt with at both the
personal and the national
levels. Finally, Mrs. Marge
Cargill dealt with the
satisfactions and rewards of
creative dressmaking, and the
new dimension it had added to
her life.
In his principal's address,
Mr. Crawford spoke of the need
to separate the importance of
making money from the
importance of retaining human
values. Having granted that
money was an indispensable
factor in a free enterprise
economy, he stressed the need
for our society to reinforce
those values which would
enable us to face and overcome
the twin dangers of affluence
and hardship, and to lead full
and useful lives regardless of
how much there was in the
bank.
He drew parallels between


money and sex, saying that
there was a sense of shame
about having too little, and a
sense of guilt about having too
much!
After Mrs. Fitzgerald, Mr.
Francis (both Primacel
graduates) and Mrs. Cargill had
presented certificates to the
graduating students, there was
a display of Afro-Bahamian
fashions presented by the
students of the academic
courses; these designs were
created primarily with the
larger woman in mind. The
dressmaking students of the
Final Phase class modelled the
actual gowns they had made
for themselves as part of their
course.
GRADUATES
The Primacel course, which
is rated one of the toughest of
its kind anywhere, covers
human relations, logical
reasoning, a wide range of
communication skills, and a
full grounding in English
Language, both spoken and
written. It is essentially a
personal-development course,
with the emphasis on active
participation by the student in
all phases of the work. The
following students received
certificates:

Charles Thompson, Mr.
Christopher Greene, Mrs.

Mick Bancroft, outstanding in


By Daphne W. Whitfield
MICK BANCROFT shone as
Butley in the play of the same
name produced by the Theatre
Work-shop Company at Vilia
Doyle last weekend.
When one actor is so good
mediocrity tends to reflect
(sometimes unfairly) on the
rest of the cast.
This, in my opinion, was the
case in "Butley" in which
everyone was competent but
none reached the brilliance of
Mick Bancroft.
Louis Isaacs as Joey
Keyston, lecturer, Butley's
former student and present
room and office mate, had
almost as heavy a part as Mick
Bancroft and deserves credit
for his performance.
However, he failed to get
across the essential neurotic
dependency of Joey.
This is developed by the
playwright right at the
beginning at the first Act. The
encroachment of Butley on
Joey's territory (his side of the
office) is done beautifully. The
script calls for Joey to "hastily
occupy the vacated desk chair"
when Butley moves. If I recall
correctly Louis lsaacs shows
none of the relief that this
simple action would have for
Joey, for Joey is totally unable
to handle the situation of
Butley's interference and
control.
At the end of the play he
leaves Butley for Reg Nuttall
(played by Douglas
Duncombe) not because he
loves Reg but because he has to
get away from Butley so as to
get some work done.
Translated this means that
the control of and interference
in his life which Butley exerts
and for which Joey has a
neurotic need decreases Joey's
ability to function. But, out of
the frying pan into the fire for
Joey, for Reg is even more
domineering than Butley.
Douglas Duncombe came
over well as the solid,
conventional publisher but I
did not feel the strength that
should have emanated from the
integrated homosexual over the
lonely and neurotic Butley
administering the final coup de
grace.
SUPERB DIALOGUE
One of the pleasures of
watching this production was
being a part of an intelligent,
appreciative audience, who
appeared to relish the suberb
dialogue of the play.
Actually, to me the central
theme of the play was not
homosexuality but the
neurotic interplay between
very intelligent poeple, the
tragedy of the disintegration of
Butley and loneliness. The
situation and the relationships
could have just as well applied
to heterosexuals except that
the latter at least have some
security under the law in the
marriage contract.
Any student or ex-student
would have little difficulty in
identifying with Miss Heasman
played competently by Gail
Saunders who was cruelly
downgraded by Butley for
reasons irrelevant to her
academic progress.
Eleanor Cartwright played
Anne, Butley's estranged wife,
with the weariness and
lassitude appropriate after a
year spent with Butley. Could
she have remained so wooden
in the face of his asceirbi
taunts or had she become
completely immune? Her

dislike of Joey would indicate
to me that occasionly she
should have shown some
evidence that Butley's barbs
had hit home.
Pat Caldwell, as Miss Edna
Shaft, the traditional university
lecturer who could not accept
the erosion of academic
discipline, was excellent and
the departure of one of her
anti-stablishment students
causes a temporary personality
breakdown which Pat carried
off very convincingly. The
comparative courtesy with
which she is treated by Butley
when she is in his presence
would indicate that Butley had
more in common with her than
would have appeared on the
surface. Edna had accepted her
loneliness but at the expense of
creating a hypersensitivity to
,change.
Anthony Delaney, whom I
understand has professional
aspirations, played Gardner,
representative of the new breed
of students. He lacked the
aggressiveness and assumed
over self-confidence that
Gardner should have displayed
and therefore totally
undermined the effect that
Butley's cruel coup should
have had at the end of the
play.
I heartily endorse what
Pauline Glasby has to say
about "Butley" in the
following: -
"In several recent
productions the actors moved
so little ( and I might add or so
woodenly) that they appeared
to be suffering from vertigo
and were afraid of falling off
the edge of the stage The cast
of Butley, on the whole, used
their confined space so
beautifully that one is led to
believe that the lack of a stage
was an advantage."
Pauline also made special
mention of the "apt piece of
descriptive musical writing" at
the end of the play for which
tribute must be paid to Mr.
Clement Bethel, Mrs. Angela
Scott and Mr. Ierek Burrows
and the fine quality of the
recording of F. Eugene Stuart.
Cedric Scott, professional
dramatist, accomplished his
aim in his production of
"Butley" a play whose
shrewd character development
is a lot deeper than that to
which Bahamian theatre
audiences are accustomed

Pindling warns

marijuana)."
Mr. Pindling talked about
loyalty as he hit out,
indirectly, at the two PLP
stalwarts who have broken
party ranks to contest the
election as independents.
He wondered how a man
could, when applying for a
party nomination, say "the
PLP is the greatest party in the
country" and then, when he
loses the nomination, describe
the party in entirely different
terms.
"That is one of the issues: if
you can be one thing today,
how can you be something else
tomorrow when the only thing
that happened in between was
the sunset?"
Mr. Pindling left no doubt
that he is fully behind Mr.
Outten in the St. Barnabas
race.
How come Sinclair Outten
was good enough for me to
recommend him to you in
September, 1972, and I can't
recommend him today? What
would you have thought of me
if I had turned my back on
him?
"I marched with him then
and I am not going to march
with him now? You must be
crazy! He hasn't betrayed one
principle of this party.
"If he had done something
wrong he would have had to
take his licks. But Sinclair
hasn't done anything wrong.
He was the the first man to
bring this thing up."
(Mr. Outten was elected in
St. Barnabas during the last
general elections, but resigned
the seat in October after
learning that he had been
born in Turks Island and
brought here as a baby, and
therefore was not qualified to
be a candidate. He has since

been given Bahamian
citizenship and has again won
the PLP nod to contest the
seat.)
"If he was such a rascally
fella he wouldn't have told
anybody."
Summing up, the Prime
Minister told the crowd:
"Don't fool yourself that
the PLP is perfect, that the
PLP never did anything wrong.
But the record of the PLP will


be one that no other party will
be able to match for a long
time. The main issue is that
when you make the final
comparison there is only one
choice you can come to PLP
all the way."
Mr. Pindling. finished
speaking ten minutes after
midnight, and the meeting
ended shortly after.

meeting were Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur D. Hanna,
Works Minister Simeon L.
Bowe, Senator Leander Minnis,
PLP chairman Andrew "Dud"

The crowd in the h.il
included a sprinkling of
supporters of other candidiAl s.

them indulged in intermittent
heckling, but speakers for the
most part ignored them.
However, several male PLP
supporters apparently decided
one man had said enough and a
confrontation was avoided
only when two policemen
stepped in. There were no
arrests, however.

DEAR M. L.: Good thinking! The truism, "If you don't
use it, you'll lose it," applies to the brain, too.
DEAR ABBY: May I answer that 45-year-old woman
who survived breast cancer, and inquired about the possi-
bility of having plastic surgery to replace the amputated
breast, but she didn't want to appear "vain or silly"?
I had a breast removed, and later had reconstructive
plastic surgery to make me "whole" again, and I can't tell
you how much it did for my morale.
I am 50, and believe me, I'm no sexpot, and I also had
a very understanding husband who tried to make me feel
that I was still as beautiful and desirable as ever-regard-
less, but I had the operation for myself. I would encourage
any woman who wants this type of surgery and is able to
have it. Mine was done by Dr. Shattuck Hartwell of the
Cleveland Clinic, and he was marvelous. WHOLE AGAIN
DEAR WHOLE AGAIN: I think It's important to add
that not all women who have had breast amputations are
candidates for this type of surgery, but thank you for
encouraging those who can.
DEAR ABBY: Have you ever heard of the superstition,
"Three times a bridesmaid, never a bride"?
I have been a bridesmaid twice and am now engaged to
be married next July. A girl friend of mine, who is being
married in March has asked me to be a bridesmaid at her
wedding, and I want to accept, but this superstition keeps
coming to mind.
Everyone I've mentioned it to says I am foolish to let
something like a superstition bother me, but if something
happened to prevent my being a bride, I would never
forgive myself. Frankly, being a bride is far more impor-
tant to me than being a bridesmaid for a third time. What
do you think I should do? CAUGHT TWO BOUQUETS
DEAR CAUGHT: Feeling as you do, decline the invita-
tion to be a bridesmaid.

BOAC, DELTA: MORE

FLIGHT CUT BACKS


AFTER cancelling four daily
flights to Nassau earlier this
month as a result of the fuel
crisis, BOAC/ British Airways
today announced additional
cut-backs between Christmas
and the New Year.
Bahamas manager Michael
Keemar said that BOAC would
maintain all flights as usual up
to Christmas, but after
Christmas there would be only
flights from Nassau to London
on December 25, 27 and 29th.
"There will be no flights on
Wednesday and Friday that
week, he said.
The cut-back is part of
BOAC's world-wide policy to
conserve its fuel in the
worsening oil crisis. Some 200
services are being withdrawn
by the airline world-wide up to
the end of the year.
These cancellations will be
on flights to Australia, the Far
East, India, Middle East, North
America, the Caribbean, the
Bahamas, East Central and
South Africa, the airline said.
Where services have been
withdrawn passengers are being
transferred wherever possible
to other services. "This may
become increasingly difficult.
however, as these operators
also feel the effect of the fuel
shortage," the airline said.
Special measures are also
being made by BOAC to meet
its commitment to carry
schoolchildren home to their
parents for Christmas. "British
Airways carries 6,000 children
during this period and so far
they are all making their
holiday journeys," the airline
said.
Delta Airlines have also
announced the suspension for
10 days of its non-stop 727
stretch jet service between
Nassau and Boston, as a result
of the fuel crisis.
The airline is still flying to
Nassau three times a day.
Delta AirLines have
announced that effective
immediately its passenger
pre-boarding security
procedures could include the
search of Christmas packages as
well as other carry-on articles.
Eugene Stewart, the airline's
chief security officer, urged
passengers to transport any
gift-wrapped packages as
checked baggage. He said that
even the most beautifully
wrapped hand-carried gift
could be opened for
inspection.
"We regret." Stewart said, "any
inconvenience that may he
caused our passengers as a
result of these security
precautions. But we believe
that Delta can count on their
understanding and cooperation
in the effort to safeguard
aircraft and to provide
increased security for the
travelling public.
Pan American W orld
Airways has announced it wot i.1
furlough 1,000 of its 5,000
cabin attendants, effective
Jan.. 10, because of the fuel
shortage.
The carrier became the latest
airline to announce layoffs of
employes because of flight
schedule reductions forced by
the federal government's fuel
allocation programme.
The air transport association
has estimated that at least
25,000 airline employes will be
furloughed by January because
of the programme, which calls
for airline fuel consumption to
be 15 per cent below 1972
usage levels. Before the
fuel-related furloughs began,
airhne employment in the
United States was about
300,000 persons
Pan Am. which earlier asked
government permission to10
reduce its 1974 flight schedule
by 25 per cent because of the


fuel crunch, said it has sent
notices to 1.000 cabin
attendants informing them of
their impending furloughs.
Pan Am said it plans to
announce additional furloughs
in other job categories soon.
The airline has already laid off
160 pilots because of the fuel
situation.
United Air Lines
announced today it would
eliminate a total of 198 flights
from its planned 1974
schedules because of the
federal government's
mandatory fuel allocation
programme.

By IVAN JOHNSON
BRIAN GOTTFRIED, the No. 1 seed from
Fort Lauderdale, Florida increased his total
earnings for 1973 to $89000 when he captured
the first prize of $2000 crushing Buster
Mottram, of Great Britain 6-2, 6-3, 6-2, in the
(men's singles) final of the $12500 3rd
Bahamas International Open yesterday at the
Ocean Club courts, Paradise Island.
Mottram seeded No. 7, who received $1200
win money had caused two upsets on his way
to be final beating the No. 3 seed Ove
Bengston, of Sweden, and Vitas Gerualitis,
seeded No. 5 however, he never looked like
upsetting the No. 1 seed yesterday.
Gottfried is strong in all departments of the
game with his forte lying in smashing.
After the match Gottfried said"Busterdidn't
play well. mainly because he wasn't hitting his
passing shots like he did against Gerualitis in
the semi-finals.
"I guess he realized his only chance was to
pass me at the net because of my formidable
smash and since he couldn't do that I had a
relatively easy victory."
Mottram seemed tense in the first set and
Gottfried went ahead in the 4th game 3-1 with
a break of serve.
Mottram held his serve in the 6th to pull up
to 2-4 but Gottfried volleyed brilliantly at the
net to win the 7th and then broke serve in the


8th to clinch the

THE BASKETS just did not favour the Warriors Juniors last
night. They missed a total of 67 of their 82 from the field and
nine of 16 from the free throw line.
Anyway, it did not make any difference to Budweiser Eagles
who took a 38-37 edge for a third place tie with Nassau Schlitz in


the Paradise League standings.
St. Augustine's College
forward Livingstone Bain
captured 21 rebounds and
scored 16 points to lead the
Eagles. Horace Pierre picked
off a game high of 30 rebounds
and scored ten.
Lenny Johnson was the high
man for the Warriors with a 24
rebound/ 1 8 point
performance. Austin Albury
captured 13 rebounds and
added six points.
In the closely contested
match, the Eagles took the lead
early in the second quarter and
held on throughout.
BAHAMAS national team
forward Jerome Barney scored
18 of his game high of 23 in
the second half when he
captured 21 rebounds lifting
Strachan's Auto Afrikans to a

Going into the second set
Mottram appeared to have
overcome his initial
nervousness as he took the first
two games, beating Gottfried
at the net with three passing
shots for the first time in the
match.
Gottfried gritted his teeth
and powered his way back to
2-2 but Mottram played
brilliantly in the 5th to break

The No. 1 seed drew level

next three games in rapid
succession to win the set 6-3.
In the third and final set

set 6-2.

DID YOU know that in the
event of a boxer being "down"
at the end of a round, other
than the last round, the referee
shall continue the count?
Should the referee count up to
ten, such boxer will be deemed
to have lost the bout by a
knockout.
Amateur boxing once more
is in the air and competitors
train with an aim of competing
in next year's international
meets. Talent has grown over
the year and this weekend's


matches should show that the
Bahamas has much to offer.
Ring veterans national coach
Bert Perry and reigning
heavyweight champ Boston

amateurs and agree that with
due care and attention, the

niel Knowles return match will
be featured by the Amateur
Boxing Association of the
Bahamas. The Tribune has
donated the trophies.
Monday night at the
Birdland Arena, in a Boston
Blackie presentation, more
bouts can be seen.
The following, in a two part
series are the rules and
instructions for golden glove
boxing as set out by the
A.B.A.B.:
The referee will not repeat
all the rules in the ring, but the
boxer will be expected to
know them and to compete
accordingly. Protect yourself at
all times.
During a bout, the refree
will use three commands. Thev
are "stop" when stopping-
boxing; "Box" when telling
the boxers to continue; and
"Break" when breaking a
clinch.
At the command "Break",
both competitors must take
one full step back before
continuing boxing. The referee
should not have to separate the
boxers or pull them apart.
Failure to step back at the
command "break" may result
in loss of points.
Do not hit your opponent
when he is tangled in the ropes
or when he is "down". A boxer
is considered "down" when
any part of his body except his
feet is touching the floor. In
the event of a boxer being
down, his opponent must go to
the fartherest neutral corner.
After a knockdown, there is a
minimum count of eight
before fighting is resumed.
A boxer who is "down" and
who assumes an upright
position and then goes "down"
to avoid being hit, may be
declared technically knocked
out. If however, the boxer who
is down gets up and then falls
again from the effect of the
first blow, the time keeper
shall be instructed to resume
the count at the next number
of the original count.
A competitor who does not
obey the instructions of the
referee, who violates the rules,
acts in an unsportsmanlike
manner or otherwise commits
fouls, may, at the discretion of
the referee, be warned or even
disqualified without warning.
When a mouthpiece is
knocked out of a competitor's
mouth, time shall be called, the
mouthpiece will be taken to
the boxer's corner where it will
be washed.
