waited


too


long


for decision,


By MIKE LOTHIAN
"WE HAVE waited much
too long for them to make a
decision," unionist Hurie
Bodye declared today as he
served notice that next week
the Freeport branch of the
Hotel and Catering Workers'
Union would take a strike vote
against Freeport's Holiday Inn.
Mr. Bodye, branch
chairman, made it clear that as
far as the union is concerned,
"we will go by the law," which
bans strike action in the
contract dispute until the
.,<,cond week in February.
But he warned that "it
might not be so far away as it
seems. The workers may get
tired of being pushed around
and decide to take action
themselves."
And. warning further that
workers in other Grand
Bahama hotels might
sympathize with those at the
Holiday Inn, Mr. Bodye raised
the spectre of a general hotel
strike on the northern island.
Mr. Bodye charged that pay
increases "the first in four or
five years" for the liolida.
Inn's 440 employees were
being held up because local
executives were denied
authority by the foreign-based


owners to make any
commitments on their behalf.
As a result, the unionist
claimed, "we are right back
where we started."
The union won recognition
as bargaining agent for the
hotel's employees earlier this
year, and submitted a contract
proposal in October.
The hotel submitted a
counter-proposal only under
pressure from the Labour
Ministry.
And when management's
counter-proposal was handed
over on December 9, it was
according to Mr. Bodye,
accompanied by the threat that
if the counter proposal was not
accepted, without change, the
hotel would be closed, putting
all employees out of work.
The threat drew a blast on
Dec. 10 from Labour Minister
Clifford L. Darling, who
charged that such a closure
would be in violation of the
law and of "all sense of
fairp'- y, of justice and of
areas, i.
The hoteliers denied they
had ever threatened closure,
and emnphvsi d that they were
S"going to stay open in respect
to Government."
The first negotiation
meeting was held in the office

of the Labour Ministry's
Freeport agent, industrial
relations officer C. 11.
Turnquest on Tuesday last
week.
According to Mr. Bodye.
Holiday Inn general manager
Ray Martz said at that time
that he had "limited
authority."
Mr. Bodye said in that one
day the negotiators hammered
out tentative agreement "on all
points," and a meeting was
scheduled for the following
morning to draw up the formal
contract document.
But, Mr. Bodve told The
Tribune, when Mr. Martz
arrived at the labour office on
Wednesday morning. '"he told
Turnquest he got a call from
Memphis ( lioliday Inn
headquarters) and they raised
hell and said he didn't have
authority to move from the
proposal he gave me two weeks
ago.
"He said that's where it
stands."
The union filed a dispute
with the Labour Ministry the
same day.
Under the Industrial
Relations Act no legal strike
action can be taken in the
dispute until a 53-day
"cooling-off" period expires.


Resorts offer to buy


By NICK KELLY
RESORTS INTERNA-
TIONAL, INC.. developers of
the Paradise Island resort
complex, have offered to
purchase up to 500.000 shares
of the company's C('lass A
Common Stock at $2.50 per
share net.
Shareholders, who were
circulated with the offer
December 18, have been told
manage ment considers
purchase of the shares at this
time "a prudent investment for
and in the best interests of the
company.
The opinion held is that the
market price of Resorts'
Common Stock (both ('lass A
and ('lass B) does not
adequately reflect the
underlying book value of such
stock.
The book value per share of
the Common Stock was
approximately $14.58 at
September 30, 1973, of which
$6.29 represented the
company's investment in
1 ,200,000 shares of Pan
American World Airways
capital stock valued at a cost of
$27,650.00.
The Pan American Airways
stock had a quoted market
value of $5.4 million at
December 7. 1973, based on
the closing price of such stock
on the New York Stock
Exchange at that date.
The closing price on the
American Stock Exchange of
Resorts' Class A Common
Stock was $1.375 on


December / and the closing
price on Class B Common
Stock was $1.875 on
December 6.
If Resorts had purchased the
minimum 500,000 shares
referred to in its present offer
at September 30, 1973 the
book value of the Common
Stock would have been
increased to approximately
$16.14 per share.
It was pointed out that the
500,000 share offer is not
being made to officers and
directors of Resorts and their
wives and children as these
persons own significant
amounts of the Company's
C('lass A and Class B Common
Stock.
Accordingly, upon any
acceptance of this offer, such
persons would benefit from the
increases in book value per
share which would result
therefrom.
The Resorts circular notes
that as leisure time activities,
the company's Bahamian
operations are sensitive to
economic trends in the United
States, the Bahamas and
elsewhere.
Additionally, the company's
operations are also subject to
increasing competition and the
changing interest of tourists.
Resorts' earnings (losses)
have fluctuated significantly
during the past three years.
It was stated that Resorts'
land sales in the Bahamas,
which made important
contributions t to the
profitability of the company

By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE IMPETUOSITY of a
youth who "borrowed" his
mother's car for a quick drive
brought tragedy to a
Bahamian-American woman
whose annual Christmas visit
with relatives here has become
three months of painful
invalidity.
Dorothy Ford of Manhattan,
New York, in her mid-forties,
planned to spend Christmas '73
in a happy reunion with her
family in Nassau, just as she
has done in each of the 24
years she has lived in the U.S.
Instead, she spent much of
Christmas Eve in the operating
theatre at the Princess Margaret
Hospital. Christmas Day and
Boxing Day were passed in a
PMHI recovery room.
She will be confined to the
hospital for at least ten more


days. She will have to rely on
crutches for her limited
movement for eight weeks
after that. In all, her doctors
expect it to be at least three
months before she can walk
properly, unaided.
Miss Ford arrived in Nassau
last Thursday to spend
Christmas with her mother,
Lilian Ford of Tenwich Street,
and to see her brothers, Inagua
M.P. and BaTelco chairman
Joseph Ford, Tribune staffer
Percy Ford and Bob Ford, who
has lived in the States for over
30 years not to mention
Percy's well-known sportsmen
sons, Wenty and Eddie.
She was supposed to return
to Manhattan in the second
week of January. She was
going to complete a secretary
course and return to Nassau -
this time for good in May.


That is all changed now.
She will not be able to leave
Nassau before late March, her
secretarial classes will be
delayed accordingly, and she
does not expect to be able to
finally return home until late
next year, November or
December.
The cause: a 16-year-old boy
who does not drive very well,
but apparently thought he
could.
Miss Ford was on her way to
post a letter at the Post Office
Building on East Hill Street
about 1:30 p.m. Monday,
Christmas Eve.
The policeman on point
duty at the intersection of
Parliament and Shirley Streets
stopped all traffic on both
roads to let pedestrians cross.
Miss Ford started to cross
Shirley, but the youngster

Dismay over Nixon's hush-hus


Oil round-up
THE NATIONAL Iraniah
Oil Cimpany today doubled
the price of jet fuel to 14
cents per litre at its
international airports, a
company spokesman said.
Effective from today,
passenger planes passing
through Tehran or Abadan
international airports will
have to pay double for their
fuel.
MALAYSIA, the biggest
producer of tin in the world,
has begun to prospect for
offshore tin for the first time
in an effort to boost
depleting stocks ashore.
The government-backed
National Trading Corporation
began prospecting for tin off
the shores of Lumut, about
100 miles northwest of Kuala
Lumpur in the straits of
Malacca, the corporation said.
FRENCH Finance Minister
Giscard d'Estaing has
predicted growing speculation
on foreign exchange markets
as a result of the oil crisis,
and especially because of the
sharp increase in the crude oil
price.
In an interview with La Vie
Francaise, an economic
weekly, he said the
unprecedented increase in
revenues of oil producing
countries was bound to
increase volatile capital and
seriously disrupt money
markets.
THE FUEL shortage has
rendered big cars in America
unpopular in dealers'
showrooms. But the gas
guzzlers apparently still are
popular in the midnight
market.
A special agent for the
National Auto Theft Bureau
in Detroit says there has been
no significant change in the
pattern of car thieves. Big
cars are still the favourites.

PREMIER Robert
Bradshaw of St. Kitts says his
government may seek special
power over the production
capacity of.St. Kitts.
Bradshaw says the step
may be necessary because of
an apparent economic turn
down not only in St. Kitts,
but in England.
THE GOVERNMENT of
Venezuela has announced
that the Venezuela oil tax
reference values used to
calculate taxes paid by
foreign oil companies will
increase substantially next
Tuesday.

PUERTO RICO has been
excluded from the U.S.
mainland mandatory fuel
regulation programme until at
least next month, according
to Juan Rigau, director of the
island government petroleum
office.
He points out that Puerto
Rico was scheduled to come
under the programme today.
The new date is January I 1.

Egypt threatens




talks walkout


BEIRUT Egypt warned today it would
walk out from the Arab-Israeli peace talks in
Geneva if military negotiations failed to
produce an Israeli withdrawal on the west
bank of the Suez canal.
Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmy said in an
interview published by the Beirut newspaper
Al Anwar, the resumption of the Geneva
conference hinged on the outcome of current
military disengagement negotiations.
"The resumption of peace talks under
United Nations auspices in Geneva is
conditional on the realization of a military
disengagement and then an Israeli withdrawal
to the Oct. 22 cease-firelines on the west bank
of the Suez Canal," Fahmy said.

What if Egyptian and Israeli generals failed
to reach agreement on these two points in
their Geneva meetings, Fahmy was asked.
Then we won't return to political
negotiations," he answered.
His warning came hard at the heels of a
statement by Egypt's War Minister, Gen.
Ahmed Ismail that his forces were "tightening
their lock" around Israeli forces on the west
bank of the canal.
Ismail described the position of Israel's
estimated 20,000 troops on the west bank as
"precarious" and said "our forces are fully
prepared to give Israel a second and third blow
if it refuses to withdraw from all occupied
Arab territories."


Egypt claims Israel seized
big areas of the west bank to
encircle Egypt's Third Army in
Sinai after both countries
agreed to observe a cease-fire
ordered by the U.N. Security
Council October 22 to stop the
fourth Middle East war.
Fahmy told Al Anwar Egypt
insists on Israel's withdrawal to
the Oct. 22 lines as an
"essential prelude for
negotiations on an overall
settlement."
He admitted the United
States and the Soviet Union,
co-sponsors of the Geneva
conference had made no
advance guarantees that Israel
would withdraw from all Arab
territories occupied in the
1967 war.
"But the presence of U.S.
and Soviet observers in the
United Nations emergency
force that supervises the
Middle East ceasefire is an
indication of the superpowers
interest in a Middle East
peace," Fahmy added.
Asked what would Egypt do
if Israel eventually refused to
abandon war-conquered Arab
territories of 1967, Fahmy
said:
"We return to war. Our
military fronts in Egypt and
Syria are ready to resume
fighting any moment. Military
readiness will not be affected
by diplomacy that proves
unproductive."
Fahmy said the presence of
the U.N. emergency forces has
a "tremendous political
but its presence cannot prevent
an outbreak of a new war."

AS TERRORISTS


GO ON TRIAL


ATHENS Security
precautions were tightened at
Greece's airports in view of the
trial of two Palestinian
terrorists, police sources said
today.
The precautions were taken
as a result of threats from
Arabs to strike again at
European capitals holding Arab
guerrillas.
Two Jordan-born Palestinian
terrorists have been held here
since Aug. 5 after killing four
and injuring 55 in a shooting
spree at Athens airport. Their
trial has been set for January
24.
Last week five Arab
guerrillas failed to pressure
Greek authorities to release the
two imprisoned Palestinians,
after killing 31 at Rome and
arriving at Athens airport with
12 hostages aboard a Lufthansa
hijacked jet. In conversation
between the hijackers and the.
control tower the Arabs had
threatened: "We will return to
get our brothers."
Asked to comment, the
Greek police source said: "We
can never ignore threats,
whatever their origin."
Measures taken at Athens
airport included a thorough
search of passengers boarding
and a disembarking from
aircraft.
Machine-gun bearing police
patrolled the area. Police
patrols have also been
increased.
In addition highly-trained
"anti-hijack combat units" set
up at each of the country's
airports, were on alert.

Press freedom 'being eroded'


ZURICH Press freedom
and "the peoples right to
know" is being eroded both in
the east and the west, the


International Press Institute
(IPI) reported today.
But no particular type of
government is to blame. "The
fragility of democracies" and
"the practices of totalitarian
and authoritarian regimes" are
both responsible for "the
endemic erosion" of press
freedom, wrote Ernest Meyer,
director of the Zurich-based
IPI which encompasses 1.800
editors and publishers of the
noo-communist world.
"In the developing
countries," he wrote in his
annual report on press
freedom, the "justification
for press restrictions relies
on a stony declaration that one
cannot afford the luxury of
democracy in the western
sense.."
Meyer found faint rays of
light in two Communist powers
- the Soviet Union, and China.
In the Soviet Union, he said:
"The welcome event of the
year" was the readiness of
internationally known
dissenters like author
Alexander Solzhenitsyn to
speak out.
China, he noted with
satisfaction, had opened its
doors to foreign journalists


following detente, and this
"raises hopes of a more liberal
evolution in the general
information policy."
In the United States, he said,
the role of the media in
uncovering the Watergaet affair
is to be commended, but there
is concern over some 30 court
subpoenas to newsmen to
reveal their sources in criminal
cases, and jailing of reporters
who refused.
In Britain "a free press has
the most chance of
flourishing... the liveliness of
the controversies about Great
Britain joining the Common
Market European Economic
Community (EEC), the
aggressive character of the
different groups in the game of
competitions," the fight
between printers' and
publishers and the increase in
advertising, "suggest that the
British press knows how to
defend its freedom..."
In South Africa the
government is threatening
action against English-language
newspapers for publishing
reports on racial inequality,
with the claim that these
hamper Black-White harmony
in the country. (AP).

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
I AM going to write about an hour in time today. It concerns
people I met ... talked with briefly ... and who left a thought with
me.
It started in Publix Market, a food shop in Coral Gables when
my wife and I were making some purchases.
The time was just before Christmas and the place was crowded
with busy shoppers.
As I pushed the food cart down a corridor for my wife
and crossed to the fruit and vegetable section I noticed a man
standing alone. He was not shopping. lie was just standing ...
watching the world go by.
He could have been waiting for someone ... or he could have
been a floor :,"alker whose job it was to catch people who slip
small items into their pockets or bags.
As I passed him I was conscious of the fact that he was
following my movements with his eyes.
"Are you Mr. Dupuch from The Tribune in Nassau?", he asked
when I was passing him for a second time.
"Yes." I said. He looked friendly and.so I extended my hand in
greeting.
Hie told me he had spent some happy years in the Bahamas,
principally in Nassau and at Freeport where he was in business. In
Nassau. he told me.he had an office over the Carib Shop.
I gathered from his conversation that he was now living in
Florida. Hie gave no reason for leaving the Bahamas.
"'The islands are so beautiful," he reminisced, "they will come
back in popularity again."
lie must have noticed a big question mark in my eyes
because he added: "I never give up hope. There is still a chance."
As we parted he gave me his card which revealed that he is in
the real estate business in Miami.

A few minutes later I was pushing the food cart along another
corridor when I saw a short junky man coming in my direction.
He had his eyes fixed on me and I knew at least he intended to
speak in passing.
He didn't pass ... he came straight up to me.
"You Mr. Dupuch from Nassau?"., he asked.
"Yes," I said.
lie spoke broken English and I got the impression he was a
Greek.
"You no remember me," he said, "but I remember you.
"About ten years ago I come to your office. Me and my brudder.
We in plenty trouble with one my countrymen in Nassau. We
work for him and he treat us bad.
"We had nowhere to go ... we didn't know anybody in Nassau ...
and we didn't know what to do or where to go. So we come to
S-ou."
In the course of a day in Nassau I used to see many
people. The receptionist at The Tribune had instructions never to
turn anyone away who wanted to see me. I always took the view
that if they didn't need me they wouldn't come. And so many of
tmy contacts were like ships that pass in the night ... they hail ...
and disappear in the forgetfulness of time. This was one of those
occasions because I neither remembered the man nor the incident
he talked about.
This is really why I gave a lot of time to seeing people. The
problems of most of the men and women in lowly positions in
life may seem small to a successful man occupying a high position
in a community, but their problems are very real to them and
they need help because they don't know what to do.
Often when people came to me with a problem that had been
troubling them for a long time I could clear it up with a single
telephone call.
"I never forget one thing you say to us that day," this man
continued. "You say to us ... don't worry, just keep on trying and
one day you be governor of some place. When I leave your office
I feel good."
"I'm glad," I said, trying unsuccessfully to piece this case
together in my mind.
"I keep say to myself," he continued, "if I ever go back to
Nassau, I go see the nice man and tell him I no governor yet but
me and my brudder got successful restaurant here in Coral
Gables. You help us that day not to give up. You come eat my
restaurant ... it just round the corner here. I feed you good.'
I mention this to show how we may all help each other as we
pass on the highway of life. It's the little things in life that
matter. you know.

When we left the food shop we went across the street to a
pharmacy where I have made a "friend" of all the staff through
exchanging a few pleasantries when I first started to patronize
this store.
My first contact was with a pretty little Jewish girl who one
day told me about her studies at the university and the kind of
work she would like to do when she graduates.
Since then she has left this shop and got into the kind of work
.for which she was studying. I hear she is doing well.
Gradually other members of the staff thawed out when they
Realized that I wasn't trying to make advances to the girl and now
T- know them all. Every time I go to this shop there is
conversation during the times they are not attending to
.customers.
Both my wife and I have found a middle aged woman in this
shop charming. I also think she is good looking. It's a man's
privilege to see beauty in a woman.
This woman has visited the Bahamas. Years ago she stayed with
the Rupert Walkins family in Rock Sound. They have now died
out.
Recently she spent a vacation at Abaco and was tempted to
buy a place there ... but she is afraid to make the investment
because of the uncertainty of life in the islands today.
SI found out that she had a daughter who was interested in
stamps and so, from time to time, I sent her stamps that I
ought might interest her daughter.
Z While my wife and I were in England in November I sent her
stamps of the Royal wedding issue (Princess Anne).


1 "I wanted to write and thank you for the lovely stamps you


Sme from nLgland for my daughter." she said in a subdued

Obviously this fine woman was undergoing an emotional upset
because her eyelids drooped heavily over ordinarily bright and
sparkling eyes.
"I am so sorry," she said, "my daughter ncver saw those
stamps. She would have loved them."
"She was in the hospital when they came," she added after a
pause, "and died."
"So young," was all I could say.
This woman looked so vibrantly youthful .. and the way she
had talked about her daughter ... I had always pictured her as a
young girl.
"Too young," she echoed. "Just past 30. She had a fine brain
a::d was successful in her own business. She had so much to live
for. She had a fine collection of stamps. Now her son says they
are his."
I would never have thought this woman was the grandmother
of a sizeable boy.
"I feel a little better today," she said. "I was alone last night
and for the first time I had a real good cry that seemed to release
some of my pent up emotions."
You know something ... that is the wonderful thing about time.
It is the great healer. One day ... years from now ... this woman
may hopefully look back on this ordeal and realize that, through
sorrow, she had developed a greater understanding and
appreciation for joy.
You know ... there could never be any joy in life without
having first experienced sorrow.
The most joyless people in life are those who, to the casual
observer, appear to have everything but who, in fact, have
nothing because life has been made too easy for them.

From this shop we came back to our hotel. I phoned a friend
in Freeport.
"No better than in Nassau," he replied when I asked him how
"things" were in Grand Bahama, "but we are still hoping...
And I thought of the conversation I had with the man in the
food shop who said that the islands were so beautiful he still had
hope for their future.
With this kind of spirit there is a chance. There is always a
chance for people who can live ... and work ... with a hopeful eye
on the future.

When I hung up from my Freeport friend my wife phoned our
daughter Bette in Canada. And then handed the phone on to me.
Bette is always concerned about how we are managing in
Nassau and the possibility of our coming to stay with her family
in Toronto. She is the one member of our family who is most
anxious for us either to sell The Tribune or just shut it up and
leave the place. She feels that the people don't deserve a paper
like The Tribune.
"Are conditions in Nassau really improving?", she asked, and
then she proceeded: "A couple of years ago my friends who
visited Nassau had such unpleasant experiences they declared
they would never go back. Now my friends who go there say it is
fine, the people are nice to them."
When she said this my thoughts strayed to a memorial service
for Ann Munroe at Christ Church Cathedral in Nassau twenty
four hours earlier. My wife and I attended this service and then
flew to Miami the following morning.
Canon Granger, Dean of the Cathedral, preached a sermon in
which he spoke in glowing terms of this charming and lovable
member of the resident tourist colony who had a house at Cable
Beach.
"Who will take the place of Ann Munroe?", he asied. And I
thought "no one" because she had a quality all her own that
could not be duplicated.
"We need people like Ann Munroe to help bring joy and
quality to our islands," Canon Granger continued. He indicated a
hope that we might return to the good old days when people of
wealth and quality found a happy refuge from the world's
troubles in little old Nassau and the islands that form the
Bahamas archipelago.
After the service a few close friends went to Munroe House at
Cable Beach to meet the two sons of Ann and their families. This
would be the last gathering of friends at this house because the
sons will not use this place.
"I don't know what's really going to happen," a wealthy friend
in the group said to me. "I wanted my wife to sell our property
five years ago when we could have got a fabulous price for it but
she said no, she loved the Bahamas and she was going to stick it
out. Even if she agreed to sell now there are no buyers and I
suppose we stand to lose a great deal of money."
"How important is money beyond a reasonable amount?", I
asked him because I believe they have plenty money apart from
their beautiful home and other substantial interests in Nassau.
"When we started to make up the list for our Christmas party,"
he continued, ignoring the question, "we only realized then how
few of our friends were still on the island. So many of them have
either died or gone away and no one is coming to take their
place."

You will recall the story I wrote about Arnold Bain, the taxi
driver about whom a couple we met recently in Grand Cayman
talked so enthusiastically. They said this taxi driver had made
their visit to Nassau a memorable experience.
And now my daughter Bette tells me that her friends had
noticed a happy change in the people in Nassau.
"Does this really mark a new trend for the Bahamas?"
I hope so but it needs to go deeper than this if confidence in
the islands is to be restored.
I am now taking up golf as a form of recreation. I was having a
drink in the bar at Coral Harbour golf club in Nassau one day last
week after a game with a friend.
This place had been so full of promise for the island ... and as I
looked around I could see that this development still has great


EDITOR, The Tribune,
If the FNM were dead as
declared by its political
enemies, inscribed on its
tombstone would be the
proclamation: Risen and gone!
Thus, in an electrifying address
to the recent FNM convention,
Arthur A. Foulkes eloquently
and convincingly bore witness
to the fact that the FNM is
indeed alive and kicking.
History attests to the fact
that there is divine intervention
in the affairs of men whenever
the salvation of a people seems
to be in doubt. In biblical
times, a pathway to freedom
was miraculously made for the
Children of Israel when their
flight from oppression was
threatened by Pharoah's army,
on the one hand, and the Red
Sea, on the other. That the
FNM has obviously been
successful in surviving a year of
crisis and controversies
resulting from the outcome of
the general election of last
year, must be regarded as a
miracle of such magnitude.
Rejected by the electorate,
deserted by some of its leaders,
ridiculed by its opponents.
Notwithstanding these and
other assaults on its viability
from expected and unexpected
sources, the evidence for all to
see is that the FNM has
weathered the storm of
adversity, and its torch has
been rekindled as a bt'acon of
hope for a misused and an
abused people. From its trials,
troubles and tribulations, the
party has emerged imbued with
the necessary strength of
character and determination of
purpose to offer itself to the
nation as a bridge over
troubled water, the only
realistic alternative to the
status quo of insensitivity,
incompetence and corruption
in high places.
An important indication ,


the fact that the FNM is
recognized as a force to be
reckoned with is the fact that
the Irade Union Congress
saw fit to ignore tradition by
accepting an invitation to have
one of its leaders address the
party's recent convention.
While the leadership of both
the I NNM and the TUC are to
be conmmnended for making
possible s u c h an
unprecedented, history, -making
event, it may be said that the
FNM convention could have
been of even more service to all
concerned if it had officially
gone on record by resolution
in support -f the L.abour
Movement's legitimate
objectives as regards the
present 't.'te of industrial
relations.

He seemed to forget that twe stamp tax on ::il .', up 20

The Tribune's stamp bill is now about $20,00J a year. liis

The Finance Minister keeps on increasing taxes that mostly
affect business places and then he would like to blame the
business community for the steady rise in the cost of living. This
is shocking when it is remembered that it is his government lh it
promised to reduce taxes and bring ldowsn the c st of living.

"A group were here last week," a man said who had joined my
friend and me at a table. "They were interested in buying this
place. But they said they were afraid of the Pindling

All these incidents and conversations put together make a
picture. It gave me the feeling that there might still be hope for
the future of the islands ... if the people would realize that their
only chance lies in a complete change of government.
But, of course, a great deal will depend on the kind of men and
women the voters select to lead them into the future.
You'll still be in hell folks ... if you change the devil for the

I have headed this article "An Hour In Time" because I was
amazed to see by my watch that all these conversations ... and
recollections of past events ... took place in just a little more than

Vene/uela was the first

would increase oil prices. Other
p reducing countries are
expected to take similar action.
IN LINE
Oil-ind ustry sources
speculated that the boost may
bring Venezuela's tax reference
values in line with prices
announced by the Persian Grulf
countries.
The tax reference price on
Vene/uelan oil now stands at
an average on S7 74 a barrel.
The average price per barrel
was $3 1 1 last Januari and has
gone up I I Ities since tlien.
The tax rltcrencri' price is an
artificial tiguiir used to
determine taxes an'1d royalties.
When it goes lup, the taxes rise
and boost tlie ultimate price
paid by foreign companies. The
end result is nmori expensive

About 270,000 barrels a day

Based on the current tax

government estimates that
foreign oil companies will pay
income taxes totalling about
$2.2 billion this year. An
additional $1.0 billion will be

DEAR ABBY: I am 35 years old, and am being mar-
ried for the first time. My fiance is 45, and this will be his
second marriage. My fiance's father has been in a conva-
lescent home for four years and his mother doesn't want
any kind of wedding at all.
My mother is a widow and I am an only child, and we
want something we can remember. It wouldn't' be a big,
wild celebration, but I would like my relatives there, plus a
few friends, totaling about 50 or 60. My fiance's mother
said she doesn't think we should have any music at all.
Abby, her husband is still living, altho he is partially para-
lyzed from a stroke, and I don't see why music would be
objectionable. I can't imagine a wedding with no music at
all.
Also, his mother said she doesn't want to get "all
dressed up" because she is not in a celebrating mood.
Finally, she said if we really want to make her happy,
we should ask the rabbi to come to her husband's bedside
and perform the ceremony there, with only the witnesses!
Please, please, tell me how to deal with her Abby. She
is making what should be the happiest day of my life the
most miserable. IN TEARS IN L. A.
DEAR IN: I assume your fiance's father isn't at
death's door. In that case, go ahead and have the kind of
wedding you want, and afterwards, call on his ailing father
and take him a piece of wedding cake.

DEAR ABBY: Does a person have the right to punish
someone else's child? Yes or no? WANTS TO KNOW
DEAR WANTS: What do you mean by the "right"? If
you mean the legal right, that would depend upon where
you live. In some places it's against the law to lay a hand
on another person's child. Also, what do you mean by
"punish"? Do you mean rap his knuckles or belt him one?

DEAR ABBY: While sitting under the hair dryer in a
beauty parlor, a lady seated next to me lit a cigaret
I turned to her and politely said: "Please don't smoke
near me, it makes me nauseous."
She replied in a snippy tone: "This is a public place,
and I don't see any 'No Smoking' signs anywhere, so if my
smoke bothers you, why don't YOU move?"
I then said: "I think it's YOUR place to move since
you are the one who is causing the problem, but I've been
taught to respect my elders, so I will move." With that I
moved, but I noticed that she immediately went to the desk
girl and reported the incident.
When I paid my bill the desk girl told me I shouldn't
have been so insolent to that woman.

is!
As Mr. Kline states in his
preface, it has been 13 years
since the original author, J.
Linton Rigg, updated his
22-year-old volume. "In this
time. almost everything in the
Bahamas has changed,
including the geography." He
acknowledges that "hurricanes,
storms and developers are no
respecters of sounding or
charted shore lines". Because
of this, he advises yachtsmen
to use the Guide in
conjunction with his new
Bahama Islands.
While the Guide is full of
facts, figures and charts,
Bahama Islands goes a step
further and adds interesting
bits of information on local
people, customs, what to wear
and where to eat on the various
islands and cays. Mr. Kline has
also included a brief history of
the islands.
Bahama Islands begins
naturally enough with advice
on the best type of boat for
yachting in the Bahamas, how
to fit it out, the islands where
reliable fuel supplies are
available, a list of available
charts, how to plan the cruise
and clear customs in the U.S.
and in the Bahamas. Mr. Kline
goes on to tell prospective
visitors about the myths of the
Gulf Stream with its "fearful
reputation". "No sensible
person will claim that it is
anything but uncomfortable,
but it is neither impassable nor
nearly as dangerous as most
people seem to think." Taking
into account this
"uncomfortable" feature of
the Gulf Stream, Mr. Kline

FOR 3 in 1

TROPICAL 2-2157


Mr. Kline tells,
Samuel Cooper, a


about
former


constable, who has tended the
hurricane lamp at Cooper's
Town, Abaco, for 14 years.
Uncle Norman and Aunt Lena
have been making sails on
Man-'o-War Cay for 50 years.
"Norman is a third-generation
sailmaker whose father and
grandfather made sails for the
old Key Westers, blockade
runners and early sponging
schooners." Uncle Norman is
also the cay's story teller with
endless tales of the old days.
"When you- visit Man-'o-War
Cay," says Mr. Kline, "you feel
a world apart, a place where
people know how to live, a
place to which you will want
to return."

Bahama Islands is not the
work of a public relations man
trying to sell the islands to
yachtsmen. Mr. Kline doesn't
pull any punches. He tells the
boating set what they can
expect. Take Nassau for
example: "Nassau today is
certainly not the sleepy little
town of the Fifties, but a lively
island metropolis that
commerce and tourism forced
to grow up 'too soon.' You can
get just about anything you
want here, but you'll have to
work for it, it will not be
volunteered. Service, by
foreign standards, has always
been inefficient and still is, but
pleasant nonetheless. Clerks,
waitresses, and the telephone
system will wear down your
patience if you try to buck
them, high blood pressure
being your only reward.
However, relaxed pleasantries
will invariably bring smiles in
return, so while here, slow
down and enjoy yourself and
let Nassau grow on vou."
Mr. Kline goes on to tell the
history and facilities of all the
Nassau marinas from Hurricane
Hole to the Yacht Hlaven. He
tells which ones haul boats and
to what size. The tourist
amenities of Nassau are given
in great detail as are those of
Coral Harbour and Lyford Cay.
Harry Kline takes the
yachtsman right down to the
Turks and Caicos hitting every
possible anchorage on the way.
As in the Yachtsman's Guide,
he offers several fine fish
recipes in order to enjoy the
day's catch.
Bahama Islands a
Boatman's Guide to the Land
the Water would make an
excellent gift for practically
anyone be he a boating
enthusiast or not. It is an
excellent reference book and
makes for just plain
old-fashioned interesting
reading.

West led the V3. East took his
two trump tricks and exited with
a spade.
The Professor cashed three
more trumps, hoping for a help-
ful discard, and broached the
clubs. Finding them 4-1. he had
to concede defeat.
Instead of inveighing against
your bad luck," observed SK
coldly, "you would have done
better to take advantage of your
good luck, the 2-2 trump break.
After the 4A, at trick -three,
you go to the OK and ruff the
4J. Next you cross to the OA
and ruff a diamond. The 4A and
4K follow anvd the 4-1 break
comes to light, but you are ready
for it. You lead dummy's fourth
diamond and discard a club.
Unless the same defender, East
in this case, is long in both
minors, he must present you
with a ruff and discard, your
tenth trick."

t' Seritbutir


New coach Ray is




Marlins mastermind


THI BLUt MARLINS proved that nothing is impossible when
they defeated the BAFA league champions, the Nassau Jets 25-16
to go through to the playoff final, the Crawfish Bowl game
against The Freeport Crushers this Sunday at the QI Sports
Centre
Trailing 6-16 at the halfway stage ihe Marlins scored 1I) points
in the second half to record their third consecut ive win and inflict
the Jets' first defeat in 23 games.
In their last three outings, the Marlins have transformed trom a
shambles to an organized team of well-drilled players.
One month ago they surprised fans by beating the Hurricanes
31-0 to keep hopes of a place in the playoffs alive. Two weeks
after that win they defeated the Stingrays 18-6 to qualify for the
playoffs-and last weekend their successes culminated in a win
against the mighty Jets and a chance to become the championss of
the Bahamas in the Crawfish Bowl game.


To what or whom can this
rapid transformation of the
Marlins be attributed?
Marlins quarterback Andy
Key answered that question
this morning.
A month ago our coach
Ray Wrice left and was
replaced by Craig Weinstead
who was until recently a
College coach in New York,"
said Key.
"Craig told us that we were
disorganized and so he just
organized us."
"Besides that, Craig is up to
date on the latest drills,
stretching excercises and plays.


I By IVAN JOHNSON
iHe made a couple ot changes
and we have played much
better ever since.
"Naturally we're all very
excited about Sunday's game
but team morale isat an all time
high and although we'll be
going into Sunday's game as
the underdogs again, we're sure
we can beat the ('rushers and
keep the Crawfish Bowl in
Nassau.' added Key
The Crushers scraped into
the playoff final when they
clinched a cliffhanger 13-12
against the Hurricanes but they


PAT KNOWLES
Man to watch
must still be favourites on
Sunday having finished second
in the regular series with 8 wins
and 2 losses.
However, according tC
reliable sources out of Freeport
the Crushers did not play well
against the Hurricanes and in


the last two weeks wet, cold
weather conditions have made
practising difficult.
This will be good news for
the Marlins whose training
programme has been
unhindered.
The Marlins narrowly lost
the regular series clash with the
('rushers 18-14, after being
0-14 down at the half.
Fhe ('rushers will be relying
heavily on the throwing arm of
Phillip (;rant (20 complts. in
I21 attempts. tor 436 yds.) and
the speedy running of halfback
Sharkce Martin who finished
second in the League's rushing
behind Bruce Russell of the
Jets.
lor the Marlins wide
receiver Pat Knowles. running
hack Rickey Thompson and
quarter back Andy Key will be
the men for the Crushers to
watch closely.
If the Marlins can produce
their recent form then the
Crawfish Bowl should remain
in Nassau.
The game will kickoff at
12.15 p.m. and will be played
under the patronage of the
Prime Minister Mr. Pindline.


George Knowles, the


perfect ringman

I Remember George Knowles- the first of tro articles by "
Bahamas boxing historian and promoter Wilfred Coakley.


On Saturday October 27,
1973, the turbulent lift of
George Knowles, one of the
all-time giants of Bahamian
sport, came to a sudden.
violent end. He was killed in
the street by a driver who
reportedly sped away from the
scene.
The former Bahamian triple
champion took the final count
far removed from the ring.
Most of today's boxing fans
have no personal knowledge of
the mighty works of this
remarkable fighter. Those
fortunate enough to have seen
him in his fighting prime are
oick to admit that the
Bahamas never produced a
better ringman than George
Knowles. George had few
equals but no superiors, in my
opinion.
To understand the greatness
of this fighter, one had to be a
product of or appreciate the
times in which he campaigned.
At one time. George held
three local boxing titles
simultaneously middle-
weight, light heavyweight and
heavyweight.
In an era when fighters
fought more and talked less,
George Knowles at a
maximum weight of about 165
pounds fought and beat every
man he faced in a Bahamian
ring. Some of his opponents
out-weighed him between 30
and 50 pounds.
Born at Tarpum Bay,
Eleuthera on May 16, 1929,
Knowles started fighting in
1947. Under the promotion of
Charlie Major. he quickly
became a headliner at the now
defunct Community Centre.
Two years later in 1949
Knowles knocked out Cliff
Marshall in four rounds to win
the middleweight crown.
Knowles then formed along
with Battling Douglas, Sam
Pratt. Sonny Boy Rahming and
a few others "the fighting
Tigers Club. Under the
guidance of Spurgeon Bethel,
the club dominated the local
boxing scene in the following
decade.
I met George for the first
time in 1949, shortly after the


"Tigers" was formed and was
immediately impressed with
the strength and toughness of
the young man. Even to my
experienced eye, George
seemed perfectly built for
taking and dishing out heavy
punishment.
Broad shoulders, muscular
arms and chest, tapered down
to a finely defined midsection.
Sturdy legs plus a bull-like
neck made him a picture of
formidability. While in battle
his expression inspired fear in
the hearts of the majority of
his foes. This was a real fighter.
They all looked alike to
George. In fact, he scored what
may have been his easiest
victory when he won the
Bahamian heavyweight title
from Qubell McCoy on March
26, 1950. This veritable David
and Goliath match came to a
sensational end in the second
round when McCoy was
counted out.
Some may recall his bruising
two bout series with
redoubtable Roy "Kid Wolf"
Armbrister another former
heavyweight king who came
out of retirement in 1951
supposedly to silence the brash
little middleweight who dared
to fight out of his class.
Although he proved
considerably tougher than
McCoy, Kid Wolf suffered the
same fate. Knowles won a
debatable decision in the first
bout but in the return go a few
months later, George knocked
out his adversary in eight
gruelling rounds.


Another time I remember
George rallying from the brink
of defeat to overcome the
seemingly unbeatable
American heavyweight Johnny
Fowler in 1952.

Despite his brilliant success
against both local and
imported opposition, George
Knowles was by no means free
from human frailties, in
contravention with the athletic
code.
George had more than just a
fondness for women. Although
he was most times congenial
and friendly, his tendency to
be headstrong in his beliefs
frequently antagonized others
of similar bent. And he
enjoyed a drink.
The fact that George
Knowles was able to reach such
a lofty height in fistic
excellence is a lasting tribute to
his tremendous reserves of
endurance and stamina.
Under his tutelage as a
fledgeling member of the
Fighting Tigers, I learnt a lot
about and from this
extraordinary boxer. Some of
his mannerisms were geared
to both help and stymie him
during his lonely quest for
international honours.
