-Venezuela doubles price-

C ARACAS, VI ENEZUELA (AP) Venezuela, the second
largest exporter of oil to the United States, said today it
was boosting its tax reference price for crude oil and
refined products to an average of $14.08 a barrel, a record
high
The new reference price used for calculation of income
taxes and cash royalties paid by foreign oil companies,
takes effect on Jan. 1, a government announcement said.
The average price of a barrel in effect during December was
$7 74.
Six Persian Gulf Oil producers boosted their posted price
of a barrel of crude oil to S 11.65 last Sunday.
The Veneiuclan tax reference price was $3.11 last Jan. 1.
It has been boosted II times this year.
the tax reference price, set unilaterally by the
government each month, is an artificial price used for
figuring the 60 percent income tax paid by such foreign
firms as Exxon, Shell. Gulf, Mobil and Texaco. The
companies pay ta xes on either the market price or the
reference price, whichever is higher.

PAN AMERICAN World
Airways have cut back their
Bahamas staff by 30 percent
and are scheduled to cut back
their Bahamas flights by 50
percent from January. 8.
Earlier this month the
US-based international carrier
had announced a 25 percent
cut back in flights to the
Bahamas from January 8. But
it appears that the cut backs
will be more serious than
originally thought.
PanAm's airport manager
Bob Fultz confirmed today
that 19 people out of PanAm's
total of 60 employees locally
will be laid off by the company
on January 7. "We are sorry to
have to do this and it really
hurts to let out staff go," he
said.
But with PanAm's Bahamas
flights being cut back from 42
a week to 21 a week the airline
has had to put some of its staff
on "furlough." Mr. Fultz said
that the staff affected were
mainly in the passenger or
cargo section departments-
"They are non-management
people," he said, "and it has
been done by seniority and
departments."
A full announcement by Pan
American relating to the cut
backs in their world-wide
operation was expected to be
made in the United States
"sometime today", according
to Mr. Fultz.
It is also learned that two
other American carriers

Hughes faces charges


LAS VEGAS Billionaire
Howard Hughes is tinder
federal indictment for stock
manipulation in his 1970
purchase of a Western regional
airline.
Spokesmen for Hughes, who
now is believed sequestered in
a hotel in the Bahamas, said
Friday they would have no
comment on the indictment
until they receive copies of it
later Friday.
Richard Hannah, who is
based in Los Angeles, declined
to say whether lie had been in
contact with the 68-vear-old
Hughes, who faces criminal
charges for the first time in his
1much-publicized life.
A former top IHelics' :,ide
and three others were u ined in
the nine-count indictlmecnt
return i d Thursday bv .i fed. -.iAl
.. ljurt ..
In it, Hughes and three of
his co-detendants are ac-used
of conspiring to pi essure
directors of Air West Airlines
to sell out to Hughes by
depressing the value of the


airline's stock and then
threatening lawsuits against the
directors.
The indictment came one
week after Hughes secretly left
London.
He reportedly flew
immediately to the Bahamas,
and took up residence on the
top two floors of a hotel
ow ned by another
publicity-shy billionaire, Daniel
K. Ludwig.
His arrival in the Bahamas

Theatre tak
THE OWNERS of the
Carmichael Road Drive-In
Theatre has asked Theatres of
Nassau to take over and
operate the theatre "subject to
the licence being transferred,"
Mr Charles Bethell told The
Tribune today.
"We are not operating the
theatre at the moment and
won't do so until the licence is
transferred," he said.
Owners of the theatre are
Claude Shianger and Lester
Krtger. both Americans.


came only weeks after fugitive
financier Robert L. Vesco was
successful there in avoiding
extradition proceedings to the
United States to face criminal
charges.
Hughes' spokesmen
immediately denied this wek
that their boss was seeking to
avoid prosecution and said
speculation about any
upcoming indictment against
him was false and political'
motivated.

e over move
Mr. Bethel said he
understood the Carmichael
owners had already given
notice to their employees.

Theatres of Nassau, owners
arid operators of all the
sit-down movie houses in town,
have once before tried to get
a licence for a drive-in theatre
in Nassau, but have been
turned down by government.
The company has closed
down two movie houses here
recently.


Eastern and Delta are also
cutting back their flight
schedules to the Bahamas
appreciably.
It is understood that Eastern
will be cutting back from seven
to five flights a day on January
7 cancelling its 12.35 p.m.
flight and its 9.25 p.m. flight,
both DC9 flights.
It's also understood that
Delta Airlines is cutting back
its flights 50 percent, bringing
in two flights a day instead of
four.
It was on December 19 at a
political rally in the St,
Barbabas by-election that
Prime Minister Pindling warned
of a bleak winter ahead in the
tourism field. "Cancellations
have started to roll in,'
because of the oil crisis, he
warned his audience.
And with less flights
bringing in tourists to our
shores the prospects for the
new year do not look bright.
At present there seems to he
little hope of any easing up on
the oil crisis.

YOUTH FAIR
THE FIRST Annual
National Youth Council fair
will be held at Windsor Park.

will be officially opened by
Prime Minister Lynden
Pindling.


73 cents for 100 octane a.. 64
cents for diesel.
Because of the
transportation problems
involved, Government sets a
maximum retail price, but
allows distributors and dealers
to add on the shipping costs.
The retail prices in the out
islands have gone up the same
number of cents in each
category as they have in New
Providence, but because of the
previous higher prices in the
out islands, the percentage
increases are slightly smaller.
Regular gasoline in the out
islands is up 21 percent from
56 cents to 68 cents a gallon.
High test has risen 13.8
percent from 65 cents a gallon
to 74 cents.
High octane fuel has
increased from 70 cents a
gallon to 81 cents, a 15.7
percent rise.
Diesel oil's retail price in the
out islands is up 35 percent
from 48 cents a gallon to 65
cents.
It will be noted that out
island retail prices, before
freight costs are added, are one
cent higher than in New
Providence in all categories.
The Regulations also put a
ceiling on the prices oil
suppliers can charge to retail
dealers and, in the out islands,
limit the prices charged by the
so-called "middle-men" who
operate as distributors between
the suppliers and retail outlets.
Further increases in retail
prices are virtually certain in
the early part of 1974.
Venezuela, source of much
of the gas burned in the
Bahamas, is to increase the tax
on the crude oil mined there
from $7.74 a barrel (about 44
gallons) to $14.08 a barrel in
January.
Persian Gulf oil producing
countries have already
announced that as of
December 16 their tax on oil
was increased from $5.09 to
$11.65 a barrel.
Adding further gloom to the
already dismal fuel picture in
the Bahamas are reliable
reports the three importers
Esso. Texaco and Shell have
tentatively agreed to stop
bringing 100 octane gas here
early in the new year.
The one bright spot only
dimly seen so far are reports
that the importers are actively
negotiating with the Bahamas
Oil Refining Company
(BORCO) in Freeport, with a
veiw to obtaining their supplies
from the local refinery.
BORCO presently imports
crude oil and exports almost all
of the refined petroleum
products, mainly to the U.S.
mainland.
The gasoline suppliers are
hoping, it is understood, to
persuade BORCO to instead
sell its products to them for
local consumption. Sources
said BORCO may also consider
supplying local cooking gas.
BORCO is believed to have
the capacity to meet the full
demand for fuel in the
Bahamas.
The Bahamas had, until
today, for the most part
escaped the effects of the
international energy crisis
springing partly from limited
world oil resources and partly
from the Arab nations' use of
their oil as a political weapon
in the Arab-Israeli dispute.
Recently, however, Texaco
officially cut back its imports
into the Bahamas 30 percent.
And even though the other two
importers have made no
official announcement,
retailers for all three companies
appear to be experiencing
shortages, particularly on high
test and 100 octane gasolines.
Some service stations lack
one or other of the fuels
entirely, reports indicate, and
several have apparently
instituted voluntary rationing,
Ulimiting saes to three gallons a
.car, in one reported case.


GOVERNMENT leader Paul
Adderley's appeal to have the
Senate rise above partisan
politics fell on deaf ears today
as both government and
Opposition continued their
well-entrenched sniping tactics.
The occasion was the debate
of the $127.4 Budget
appropriation for 1974. And in
what must be a record, the
Upper Chamber managed to
'dispense with the motion in
about two hours.
government obviously
anticipated the Budget would
take slightly longer than
ordinary legislation, and
today's sitting was therefore
scheduled for 10 a.m.
But by 12.45 p.m. without
any debate in the committee
stage, the Budget and several
other matters had been dealt
with and the Senate stood
adjourned sine die.
Only two members of the
Opposition Free National
Movement were present
Leader Orville Turnquest and
Senator Garnett Levarity.
Senator Henry Bostwick was in
court with a case and Senator
Arthur Foulkes tendered his
resignation last week to contest
the St. Barnabas by-election.
The tenor of Senator
Turnquest's introductory
remarks was that the size of
the government's Budget did
not necessarily reflect a
corresponding expansion in the
country's economy, as
suggested by Senator Adderley.
He argued for what he called
a "bread and butter" Budget
whose principal aim would be
he encouragement of tourism,
construction and agriculture,
so as to put more money into
the pockets of those now on
the unemployment rolls.


His suggestion, however,
that Tourism should have been
given the largest appropriation
at what government members
interpreted to be the expense
of Education and the Social
Services, drew sharp attack.
Senators Mizpah Tertullien,
Alexander Maillis and Leander
Minnis chided Senator
Turnquest for wishing to
de-emphasize these two areas.
and then proceeded to sing the
government's praises.
Senator Turnquest also came
in for criticism from Senator
Adderley for suggesting that
the government was
encouraging the numbers
racket.
"When members accuse a
government of criminal action
that is the worst kind of
irresponsibility in which a
member might engage," the
affronted Leader declared.
In addition, he continued, it
was dishonest to call national
insurance taxation. "That,"
said Senator Adderley, "is the
kind of irresponsibility that
causes people to take a
jaundiced view of what
politicians say," and the
purpose was calculated to
mislead.
At the start of the morning


Senator Addeiley suggested
that this might be an
appropriate time for the Senate
to re-think its role in !nT
independent Bahamas.
While the nature of this
bod\ virtually guaran teed
concurrence, the Senator felt
the Chamber should establish a
less partisan atmosphere in
dealing with such matters as
the Budget.
This was so that the public's
image of politics should not be
that of a permanent division
existing in the country.
Launching into the main
part of his debate, Senator
Addeiley noted that there had
been a steady growth in the
entire economy of the
Bahamas as demonstrated by
the various Budgets over the
past eight years.
In 1967 the Budget was one
third of what the total revenue
and capital account would be
in 1974 "and this is the
perspective in which I would
like members of the Senate and
the country to see the steady
growth of the Bahamas."
Senator Adderley said.
The growth during that time
had been "unrelenting and in
one direction," with a 300 per
cent increase in public


expenditure in the Bahamas, he'
said
"It is no overstatement t'
say that the economy of the
Bahamias has progressed
steadily in an upward direction
over the last eight years and
the state of the Treasurn is in
excellent shape and the
Treasury is solvent and sound."
declared the government
Leader.
This. he maintained.
reflected the increasing
confidence being exhibited in
the Bahamas by Bahamians
and non-Bahamians and faith
in the future of the Bahamas.
It was also indicative Qf a
return to normalcy in the
country, now that it had put
behind it the divisive politics of
a general election and
independence.
Senator Adderley argued
that these two factors were
bound to have had an effect on
investors. But notwithstanding
this, there had been steady
growth in the public economy
of the Bahamas.
In response Senator
Turnquest asserted that the
government had been more
concerned with establishing
new accounting procedures
than with attending to the ills


Time won't change in Bahamas


THE BAHAMAS is not to go onto Daylight
Savings Time with the United States on
January 6, the Cabinet Office announced
today.
Many people expected that the Bahamas
would follow the lead of the United States in
adopting a year round Daylight Savings Time
to help conserve fuel and electricity. But
instead the Cabinet have decided that the
Bahamas will remain on Eastern Standarc
If


of the country.
At a time when the nation
was plagued with "collosal
economic problems" that
tended to stifle growth, he
would have thought the
government would have been
seeking the means to achieve a
better way of life for the
people, and a means whereby
money from honest hard work
would flow into people's
pockets.
Senator Turnquest argued
that there was nothing being
proposed in the Budget to
attract new industry or
development. "If we are to
believe the government that all
the problems are not of our
own choosing, then it is the
government's bounden duty to
take steps to promote the
economy by themselves
producing paying projects."
Senator Turnquest said he
wanted to know where in the
Budget were there any new
construction projects that the
government intended to
embark on.
It was his view that by
stimulating tourism,
construction and agriculture
the entire economy would
grow.
The Minister of Tourism
had himself acknowledged that

New energy




clampdown




calls for




heating cut

WASHINGTON Energy chief William Simon ordered new
energy regulations late last night, barely beating a midnight
deadline.
The rules will be fully applied by January 15. They call for a
six-degree cut in home heating levels and a low priority for
gasoline service stations.
Major airlines will receive 95 per cent of the fuel they used
laslast year. But the Defense Department has lost a proposed
guarantee for all the fuel it needs.
Un:er the new rules, energy producers and emergency services
will get all the gasoline, heating oil and diesel fuel they need.
Agriculture and public transportation facilities also are high on
the gasoline priority list.


CANCELLED

CUTBACKS

MAKE LITTLE

DIFFERENCE
LONDON The Arab
decision to restore oil cutbacks
made little immediate
difference to Europe's
contingency plans for gasoline
rationing, speed limits and
power-saving measures.
This was the situation as
Europeans returned from their
Christmas holidays, two days
after the Arab oil ministers
announced in Kuwait that the
5 per cent monthly production
cutbacks were cancelled and
that production would rise 10
per cent from December levels
to guarantee Europe gets the
oil it needs.
BRITAIN The
government said the 50 m.p.h.
speed limit will stay. It
continued issuing coupons in
case gasoline rationing becomes
necessary.

ITALY Experts predicted
restrictions on gasoline and
electricity will last for more
months together with speed
limits and the ban on Sunday
driving.

SWEDEN Gasoline and oil
rationing will begin as planned
Jan. 7. Each driver will receive
26 gallons over a seven-week
period. Electricity for homes
will be cut 25 per cent.
Officials said they see no relief
before March.
NORWAY The
government still is issuing
gasoline coupons but no date
has been fixed for rationing.
Trade ministers of the Nordic
countries were meeting to
discuss possible relaxations of
restrictions such as speed
limits.

SWITZERLAND officials
said the Kuwait decision was
unlikely to have an effect until
the end of February, since it
takes two months for supplies
to get through.

WEST GERMANY The
government expects no easing
of fuel restrictions because of
the lag between the decision
and the time when oil supplies
reach West Germany. (AP)

But energy chief William
Simon yesterday ordered the

March 1 is the earliest the

It would involve issuing
monthly ration coupons to

older.
The number of coupons will
depend on the area. A Los

today urged consumers to
make thrifty use of oil and
switch to other sources of
energy to avoid early

He charged that western
postwar industrialization
flourished largely at the
expense of oil exporting
countries.
Shah Mohammed Reza
Pahlevi said during a private
visit that while his country did
not regard oil as a political
weapon, the steep increase in
crude oil prices he announced
on Dec. 23 at a meeting in
Tehran of Persian gulf
productions had a twin
purpose for Iran:
To re-establish a correct

-Britain faces a million unemployed


LONDON Nearly a million
unemployed are forecast for Britain
next week because of the spreading
effect of the country's energy
shortage.
The Department of Employment
announced today that 400,000
workers have been laid off in England
and Wales as a direct result of the fuel
crisis.
A few hours later the British Steel
Corp. announced that the coal
shortage may force it to suspend
100,000 employees almost half its

horror
GUAYAQUIL. Ecuador
Four days after the capsizing
of the ferryboat "Jambeli"
in the Guayas river estuary
here the known total of
victims is 191.
But many other bodies are
thought to be trapped inside
the vessel, which rests upside
down on the gulf floor.

The number of dead, plus that
of survivors, shows that the
ferry authorized to transport
a maximum of 150 people,
was in fact carrying over
400. A cargo of 600 drums
of butter was also on board.
The authorities have ordered
the immediate burial of
corpses recovered from the
waters of the estuary which
are not immediately
identified by relatives or
friends.
lcuadorean navy frogmen are
trying to recover more
bodies from the sunken
craft, but can only work a
few hours a day when there
is no tidal movement. The
"Jambeli" is sunk in an area
full of whirlpools and
-undertows.
In Guayaquil, long lines of
people parade through the
morgue trying to find
missing relatives or friends.
Some of the bodies
recovered from the waters
are mutilated, apparently
partly devoured by fish.

Bar shoot-out
SHOOTINGS which started
with efforts to eject a

and brought police into action
left two men dead and two
others wounded today, officers
said in El Paso, Texas.
They listed the dead as
Fermin Aguirre, 18. son of the
wour.ded bar owner, and a
man whose identity had not
been determined.
Four patrolmen dashed to
the scene at the sound of
gunfire and pursued the
gun-toting bar patron into an
alley where several shots were
exchanged before the man
dropped dead, officers
reported. (AP).


year.
Unemployment at the start of the
crisis totalled 490,000 out of a work
force of 24 million. Newspapers have
predicted 10 million jobless if the
crisis drags on.
Leaders of 18,000 electrical
power engineers who have been
refusing to work overtime met today
to consider a new pay offer, and
power industry sources said they were
expected to accept it. But their
slowdown had been a minor factor in
the electricity shortage, resulting in
only one day of blackouts.


Seventy per cent of Britain's
electricity is generated from coal, and
the crisis crippling the country stems
from the go-slow by coal miners which
has cut coal production 30 per cent.
A slowdown by 29,000
locomotive engineers is delaying coal
shipments to generating stations.
Both the miners and the
railwaymen want pay rises in excess of
Prime Minister Edward Heath's
anti-inflation guidelines. Talks
between the miners and the state Coal
Board broke up without agreement,


EGYPT AND ISRAEL


AGREE ON PULLBACK


GENEVA Israeli and
Egyptian officers negotiating
troop pullbacks around the
Suez Canal reached partial
agreement today, but were in
apparent discord on some
issues.
A meeting of two hours and
10 minutes produced
"consensus on some of
the principles of
disengagement," said a
statement by the United
Nations, which is chairing the
talks.
"There was a further frank
exchange of views on other
principles," it added. As usual,


no hint was given on what
these principles might be.
The talks between Israel's
Maj. Gen Mordechai Gur and
Egyptian Brig. Taha El
Magoob, which entered their
second session today are
crucial to the future of the
Mideast peace conference that
opened in Geneva a week ago.
The U.N communique
indicated that for the first time
the negotiators ventured into
specifics about how to
"separate and disengage"
Egyptian and Israeli troops
facing each other along an
awkward ceasefire line around


the Suez waterway.
"Clarifications were sought
by both sides regarding details
of these principles" of
disengagement, the
communique said.
The next meeting was set for
Jan. 2. The decision not to
pursue the talks until after
Israel's Dec. 31 election was a
sign to some observers that the
officers may have reached a
major stage in their parley.
Israel has pledged to make
no significant moves on the
territorial issues involved in the
Middle East until after it goes
to the polls. (AP)

DEATH COMES TO ALL OF US


Editor, The Tribune,
I was pleased to see Sir
Etienne and Lady Dupuch at
the funeral service for my
friend F. N. Russell. I wasn't
surprised to see them at this
service on Sunday. This is the
kind of thing some of us have
grown to expect of them.
I must say I was surprised to
see Deputy Prime Minister
Arthur Hanna, Cadwell
Armbrister and Lionel Davis,
three P.L.P. politicians, among
the mourners.
My friend suffered mental
and physical agonies because
he was determined to be
honest with himself and the
public.
He told me that after one of
I his letters appeared in The
Tribune he lay in bed and


heard one of the Ministers in
the Cabinet speaking over a
loud speaker at a campaign
meeting held in the district. He
heard the man tell the audience
what they should do to him.
Because F. N. chose to be an
honest man with the people
the politicians seemed to forget
the sacrifices he had made
for the party. These men are
dictators at heart. No one is
supposed to have a free
thought without being
considered an enemy of the
people.
In his column on Monday
Sir Etienne was very kind. I'm
sure it wasn't an oversight


Ii-


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
HONEST TO GOD ... the government of the Bahamas is
ignorant of the elementary facts of life ... and they seem to be
incapable of learning.
They are so full of their own conceit that they feel that they
can even reverse the laws of nature to accommodate their
infantile policies.

When they first got control of the government they took two
steps that seemed to augur well for the future.
They engaged a firm of economic experts to advise them on
the structure of the nation's work force.
These experts advised them that, with the highly technical
nature of the island's economy, they would have to employ a
percentage of foreign staff for a long time to come. They could
justifiably have said forever, but they didn't.
The foreign staff would be a small percentage of the total
population but even so it wouldn't matter because one of the first
things this government did was to strip all British Commonwealth
citizens of public rights, such as voting and holding office in
labour unions. And so they would be powerless to affect the
structure of government.
Under the new constitution that gave independence to these
islands in July the Belonger status was eliminated and provision
has been made for certain classes of residents to apply for
citizenship. This change has been applied even to wives of
Bahamians, something that, as far as I know, has not been done
by any really civilized country in the world.
Hundreds of expatriates of long residence in the islands have
applied for citizenship but the government is dragging its feet on
this one, clearly because there is a streak of Uganda's Aminism in
their wretched nature. Whatever they might say ... every action
they take suggests that they want to be rid of white people in the
community.
The other wise step taken by the government was to appoint
an Economic Advisory Committee composed of men of
outstanding financial ability, headed by E. P. Taylor, the
Canadian industrial tycoon.
But the government ignored the advice of both these groups
and the results of their shortsightedness and unhealthy ingrained
prejudices are to be seen on every side in the island today.

They thought that education would provide the human
material they needed to carry out their revolutionary policies.
But now even Mr. Pindling is beginning to grudgingly admit that
they have missed the boat somewhere along the line.
For seven years I have been pointing out to them that a
fundamental law of nature says it can't be done.
I reminded them that it has long since been scientifically
established that only three percent of any race of people are
capable of training for executive positions.
aou see this fact of nature working out in families where one
or two people succeed while the others drag their feet despite the
faat that they have all been exposed to the same environment.
I think three percent may be a little low and so I usually base
my calculations on five percent.
Now then ... we have a population of approximately 180,000
people scattered over many islands in the archipelago.
The government has told us that more than half of this number
are, children of school age. This gives us nearly 90,000 people.
Five percent of 90,000 is 4,500. And the government feels that
this small handful of people can control and direct a multi-billion
dollar economy!
Another complication is that the nation's economy is not
concentrated in any one direction, such as oil or mining. It is
vaired and complex, calling for men and women who are highly.
trained in many fields of enterprise.
I have repeatedly warned the government that there are far too
fe* capable Bahamians to meet the demands of the nation's
vaied enterprises. I have pointed out this fact to them in our own
experience in The Tribune.
Is a result of their policy it is the small Bahamian business that
is handicapped by not being able to employ capable staff because
all the best people are absorbed by the big foreign-owned
companies with which the local business man cannot hope to
cothpete in recruiting staff. This means that, whatever the
government may try to do to alter this condition, foreign
interests will continue to control the commercial life of the
country in a steadily increasing measure.
*** *** *n* *
the facts I have been trying to drill into their thick skulls were
recently demonstrated by the report of the headmaster of the
government's Teachers Training College.
this report Mr. Patrick Bethel showed that the percentage of
Teachers College entrants possessing five "0" levels has declined
fromn 90 percent in 1961 to 6 percent in 1973.
Ilr. Bethel said that something must be done to overcome this
startling 84 percent drop in academic standards over the 12-year
period. He offered some suggestions. But I can tell him that the
one problem he is facing is lack of human material with which to
build the structure his government has designed.
This government is like the rich woman who went to see the
headmaster of the school at which her daughter was a student
because the child's marks were poor
"I am sorry, madam." the headmaster said, trying to break the
news gently, "but your daughter lacks aptitude."
"Why didn't you let us know this before," the mother said,.
"her father will buy her one."'
Now ... aptitude is a gift of God that no money can buy ..
and no government can legislate it into existence. A child either
has it at birth or he hasn't got it. It is a gift that is conferred on
only a very small percentage of the world's population.
I is a gift that is not reserved for any one class or colour .... it
is spread sparingly among rich and pour alike.
It 1. for this reason that newspaper files in Nassau show that
just about every 25 years the names of successaflful men on Bay
Street change. Some of the names of firms may remain constant
but the people in control of managment carry different names
and are of a different breed.


SMthbag intemsting happened to me during my visit to
Nassa for the V itmna Mason.


Back in the old days, when the U.B.P. were in control of the
political and business machinery of the nation, I used to tell these
men that the day they lost control of the government they would
fade into the background and quickly become unknown except
among their own small circle of friends.
At a party I was talking to one of the leading bankers in Nassau
today. He is really a big fellow, even outside the banking business.
We were talking about old Nassau and I mentioned the names
of three men who had not only been in the former government
but.who are still among the wealthiest men in the island. Two of
these men were in the U.B.P. Cabinet.
The conversation flowed smoothly for awhile but I got the
feeling that he was "losing" me.
"You know whom I am talking about, don't you?", I asked to
make sure we were on the same wavelength.
"Yes, of course," he said, calling the first name of one of the
men.
And I discovered that he was thinking about coloured men by
the same name who have suddenly shot up from nowhere in the
social and economic structure. He couldn't follow my
conversation because he realized that these men did not have the
capacity for doing the things we were talking about.
I was shocked to find that he had never heard of some of the
white leaders of the nation who were riding high in these islands
only seven years ago.

This principle of national selectivity applies to other forms of
life, particularly in standards of social behaviour. A man may not
have any great ability but, brought up in the right environment,
he may conform to a high standard of conduct.
I saw this principle apply in the British West Indies Regiment
during the first world war when British islands in this hemisphere
sent about fourteen battalions to the theatre o war.
The first two battalions were composed of the cream of the
islands. They were taken to the Easi: where they maintained a
high standard and earned a repute ir for themselves. They
marched with Field Marshal Allenby e capture of Jerusalem.
The third and fourth battalions v s trained on the Sahara
desert but they were sent to the v .. front in France. Their
standard was not as high as the first ana second.
lwas only 15 years old and small for my age when the war
broke out. I tried to get into the early contingents sent from the
Bahamas but I was too young and too small. The first contingent
known as the Gallant Thirty has always stood out as the
finest group of men to leave the island for war service.
I finally got in on the 5th contingent. By then I was 17. The
age for enlistment was 18 but I had pestered the recruiting
officers so much that they allowed me to get by at 17.
By that time the dregs were filtering into the contingents. Jeff
Hunter, for example, was with us.
Jeff was a giant of a man who spent most of his life in prison.
He was in prison at the time Susan Tate was sentenced to be
hanged for the stabbing murder of a woman in a sponge clipping
shed. The murdered woman left a blind daughter who lived for
many years after this tragedy. Jeff took the hangman's job and
was let out of prison as a reward.
As far as I know, Susan Tate was the only woman hanged in
Nassau during this century. This was somewhere between 1910
and 1912. After that people were afraid of him. They tagged him
with the name "Jack-Catch" and shied away from him.
(H. C. Christie, father of Sir Harold Christie, wrote a romantic
story about a woman who was hanged some time in the 1800's).
Ordinarily Jeff was quiet and easy-going but when he got a few
drinks under his belt he became dangerous. He terrorized all the
men in the barracks in Jamaica. He used to walk around with a
short iron rod in his hand which he often used on a man even
without any provocation.
The battalion we joined in Jamaica went to Egypt as the Fifth
Reserve. We were used to fill the casualty gaps in the first four
battalions. I was sent to the fourth battalion in France.
Then the rest of the battalions started to come to France.
Towards the end men were being taken out of prisons to make up
numbers.
By the end of the war the regiment had such a bad
reputation in France that I tried to get a transfer to some other
regiment. Several of the men had got transfers in the early days
but by the time I applied the regiment had such a bad name that
there was no chance.
I have always felt that the West Indies should have sent no
more than six battalions and that some kind of standard apart
from physical fitness should have been set for accepting
volunteers for overseas service.
I saw the same thing apply when I travelled with a group of
West Indian journalists in Britain in 1951. The behaviour of a
couple of these men was shocking. More than once I had to
remind them that we were representing our countries and that the
West Indies would be judged by the way we conducted ourselves
during our stay in Britain. But this didn't mean a thing to them

Whether anyone likes it or not, there are certain things in life
that cannot be forced or changed ... not even by the P.L.P.
government ... without lowering standards to a distasteful level

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: For several days last week ZNS
was announcing "Christmas programmes in an independent
Bahamas".
I can well believe that under the Bahamianization programme
of the government, they would like to introduce a new Christ to
the islands.
Certainly there is little evidence of the Christ of Calvary left in
the hearts of many of our people today. It would appear that
even some ministers of the Christian churches in the islands have
. changed sides.
A young girl told me on Wednesday that there are very few
Christians among young people in the Bahamas today because so
many of the ministers have failed to give them the leadership that
should be expected from them.
The government and their followers may have their new Christ
but, thank God; Ihere is no chance of changing the real Christ to
their way of thinking and living.

because nothing seems to
escape his notice. I suppose he
was just being considerate.
He mentioned that Father
Bonaby paid a brilliant tribute
to F. N. but what he didn't
say was that Father Bonaby
dwelt at some length on the
finality of physical death so far
as this world was concerned.
Death, he emphasized, must
come to all living things.
He recalled the story of
Lazarus and the rich man in
the Bible. Lazarus was poor
and he went to heaven, the rich
man went to hell, not because
he was rich but because, while
he was on this earth, his
priorities were wrong.
Father urged all those
present to remember that life is
a preparation for death and the
spiritual life that follows


Thanks all

EDITOR, The Tribune,
I would like to ask you for a
little space in your valuable
columns.
As a patient in the Male
Surgical Ward of the Princess
Margaret Hospital, I would like
to take a moment to express
my gratefulness towards the
doctors and the entire nursing
staff for the unselfish
fulfilment of their duty and for
their devotion to the patients.
I want to give special
mention to Doctors Farrington
and Ruder, for they have given
special care and attention to
their patients, have always
been present among them,
often working overtime with
their team of doctors. People
will not hesitate to find
criticism and accusations
against the conditions in the
hospital; yet, in my opinion,
thought should also be given to
the good that doctors, nurses,
and maids are doing helping
hundreds and hundreds of
people day and night.
In this Yuletide season I
wish to give thanks to the
entire staff of the Princess
Margaret Hospital.
"May the Christ Child bring
peace, joy, love and a tender
heart and healing hands."
I also wish to extend my
good wishes to all of them for
1974.
MR. AUDLEY JONES


physical death.
Since Mr. Hanna was a
distinguished member of the
congregation he singled him
out for special recognition. He
reminded him that today he
wielded great power in the
Bahamas but that he too will
die one day.
I am constantly amazed by
the fact that so many people
seem to forget that death walks
at our side every moment of
our lives.

grocery shopping? Do you find
the impersonal service at the
large supermarkets combined
with sky-rocketing prices an
intolerable combination?
There is something between
the friendly little local store
that might not always be too
clean nor stock the- variety of
items you. require, and the
giant supermarkets.
Such a store is the
Centreville Food Market, just
off Collins Avenue on Madeira

Just one year after its
opening it is still spanking

Jerome B; Major is
proprietor and manager and

the grocery and related fields

He was born at Roses, Long
Island, and came to Nassau in
1950 when he .was 17. His first
job was with Glei':Rodgers at
the Village Store. Never a
quitter the young Jerome
stayed for 11 years until the
store closed down. Then came
several bookkeeping courses.
Jerome then joined AJbury's
Food Store and stayed there
again for eight years until it
closed.
Mr. Major believes that his
compact market has an added
plus over many others. While
Centreville Food Market offer

GAS COUPONS FOR 118 MILLION DRIVERS


WASHINGTON (AP') It
rationing comes, all 118 million
-licensed drivers over 18 will get
gasoline coupons. Then the
dickering begins as some sell their
ration and others buy for whatever
the free marked will bear.
The decision to ration or not
won't be made for at least six
weeks as fuel supplies are assessed,
energy chief William E. Simon said
Thursday. But he has ordered that a
three-month nationwide supply of
coupons be printed, just in case.


Each coupon will be worth a


certain number of gallan:s of
gasoline across the country, but the
number distributed to an
individual driver will depend on
where he lives. In metropolitan
areas where mass transit is good the
number will be less than in a
sparsely populated region where
daily commuting needs are more
severe.
The coupons, distributed
monthly, will be good for 60 days.
But the number of gallons each will
buy can change month by month.


HI' average each driver would get is
estimated at 32 to 35 gallons a
month.
A driver who has more than he
needs can sell his coupons. The
government won't have any part in
that it will be strictly free
enterprise.
Anyone can act as an exchange -
a gas station, a tavern owner, the
entrepreneur on your block. But
there is a risk in buying and selling
coupons that can fluctuate in value.
And coupons unused by the end of
a particular period will be
worthless.
That free market approach is
different from World War II, when
60,000 paid employees and
270,000 volunteers decided who
would get extra gasoline. The
government expects to pay for 50
employees in each state, 500 at the
federal level, and for one S-man'
rationing board in each of 3,000
countries. When more people are
required, the state would pay.


From Page 1
was in trouble. Therefore
tourism should have been
accorded the largest
apportionment, Senator
Turnquest said.
Senator Adderley suggested
that perhaps the Opposition
was under a delusion as to
what capital expenditure
meant. "There is $24 million
worth of bread and butter to
be found in this Budget," he
said alluding to the capital
expenditure.
Capital expenditure for 1974
was equal to what the
country's revenue was ten
years ago, he noted.
While the FNM was entitled
to say the government had got
its priorities wrong, the
government should know what


the party's philosophy was.
The government Leader
called National Insurance one
of the most important pieces
of legislation ever introduced.
He said it would provide
economic security for people
at a time in their lives when
they needed it most.
As for the Bahamas losing
out to its tourist competitors,
Senator Adderley argued the
inevitability of a slower tourist
growth rate as more and more
Caribbean countries sought to
duplicate the Bahamas' success.
Spending more money on
tourism did not necessarily
guarantee greater returns, he
said.
Senator Turnquest had also
ignored the $10 million made
available by Chase Manhattan
for low-cost mortgage loans,
the government Leader pointed
out.
Therefore he could not
understand his statement that
no mortgage money was
available.

Salvage firm entitled to


compenisation,judge rules


BROWNSVILLE, Tex. (AP)
An Indiana salvage firm that
recovered "priceless" relics
from a sunken Spanish galleon
is entitled to compensation for
its work despite a possession
claim by the state of Texas, a
federal judge ruled Wednesday.
U.S. District Judge
Reynaldo Garza said Texas
must pay Platoro Ltd. of Gary,
Ind. $131,248 in cash or in
relics of equivalent value.
The company began
recovering artifacts from the
sunken Spanish ship, but Texas
stopped the salvage operations,
claiming the treasure was its
own under a new antiquities
statute.
Garza's allotment to Platoro
was based on valuation of the
sunken treasure supplied by
Mendell Peterson, a former
official of the Smithsonian
Institution. Peterson said the
artifacts are worth $294,000.
Garza awarded one-half that
amount to Platoro, minus half
the $32,123 In restoration
costs paid by Texas. That
worked out to $131,248.
The galleon is believed to
have been part of a fleet of
Spanish ships that left
Veracruz, Mexico, in 1553,
laden with treasure for Spain.
But the flotilla ran into a
hurricane and the ships and
treasure sunk off the Texas
coast
Platoro began recovering the
treasure north of Port
Mansfield, Tex., in 1967. But7'
operations were halted in
December 1967. The state
insisted the work was covered
under a new law regulating
recovery of ancient artifacts.
Platoro later filed suit
seeking possession of the
artifacts. Texas said Platoro
was entitled to nothing since it
did not have a permit for the
recovery.
Platoro lawyers said an oral
agreement was reached after


1967 with former Land
Commissioner Jerry Sadler
allowing Platoro to continue
salvage efforts. The state
denied the validity of such an


agreement.
During testimony in the civil
suit earlier this year, Platoro
said it would settle for half the
value of the goods.

less complex way of describing
our holdings to our partner.
The Precision Club system is
admirably simple in most
respects, and it is catching on
worldwide. Yet despite all the
convulsions and conventions,
one basic situation still gives
rise to grave doubts, even
among leading internationals:
when is a hand worth a force?
Back in the days of
Culbertson, when hands were
evaluated according to an
honour-trick count, it was
comparatively easy, yet also
somewhat misleading. It took
some years for the more
thoughtful players to realise
that although A, K, 4, 3, 2, of a
suit was worth 7 points in their
system of evaluating, it could
take fewer tricks in a No
Trump contract than Q, J. 10,
9, 8, which was worth only 3
points. Many good slams were
missed because players were
looking for top tricks rather
than a good fit.
The otherwise excellent
Acol system which originated
in England 30 years ago is also
responsible for this heresy. The
pioneers of Acol laid down
that a minimum of 16 points

was necessary before you could
make a forcing bid once
partner had spoken ahead of
you. Although the ideas
implicit in the Acol system
were never really accepted
elsewhere, this particular
theory was, and is still widely
practised among American
players. It leads to the
following difficult situation:


WEST
A 2
K Q 10 6 3
A 54
732
The following
take place:
WEST
IH
pass
or perhaps:
WEST
1 H
2H
pass


EAST
K 74 2
AJ98 2
K Q 109
none
exchanges

EAST
4 H


EAST
IS
4 H


In neither case can West be
blamed; he has a minimim for
his opening bid, and can't
possibly visualise from the
bidding that the two hands
together are rich in tricks. A
small slam is duly made in the
play, and East says: "I only
had 13 points, partner." West
is uneasily disposed to agree,
but has the feeling that
somehow they ought to have
done much better.
This situation does not arise
anywhere nearly so often
where both hands are more
suited to No Trump contracts,
and where honour cards have
to pull their weight more
heavily:
WEST EAS'
A 109 7 3 K 3
KQ2 A1053
K J2 A84
A5 KQJ6
West opens 1 Spade; when
East makes a forcing replay of
either 3 Clubs or 3 Hearts,
West Knows that the
partnership has at least 33
points between them, and that
it only a matter of deciding in
what denomination the slam is
going to be played.
Any good pair should reach
6NT on those cards today, and
with normal luck they would
make it. But consider the
chances of landing in the same
contract today on these cards:


WEST
K5
K42
AQ 10
KJ863


EAST
842
A9 8
K8 5432
AQ


Providing West plays the
hand, and proving the
Diamonds are not 4-0 (a fairly
remote contingency), the hand
is cold for 6NT. If East plays
the hand, either at 6NT or
more likely 6 Diamonds, a
Spade lead could sink the ship
immediately. How would a
good modern pair perform
here?


WEST
IC
2 NT
4D
6 NT


EAST
2 D
3D
5C
pass


West knows that East has
produced a forcing bid in
Diamonds with only the King,
and has repeated the suit: it is a
safe deduction, therefore, that
at least 2 of the missing 3 Aces
are in the hand opposite, and
with the lead coming up to the
West hand, the Kings are
protected.
Put the same cards into the
hands of players with fixed
ideas on forcing bids. and a
sequence like this would no
doubt result:


WEST
IC
2 NT
pass


EAST
ID
3 NT


Both players would feel that
they had done as much as
could be expected of them,
and the fact that 12 tricks
came rolling in would be
regarded as just a piece of luck.
When it is generally realized
that to force on the first round
is simply to force to game and
not necessarily to slam. the
requirements for a force will be
modified.

the game of Bridgt, that this
language is in a situation of
constant change. If you
examine the records of a teams
match in the early 1930's. the
bidding sequences seem
impossibly crude: yet at that
time, the players were using
the very latest in
communication devices, and no
doubt thought themselves
rather avant garde. Jump
forward to the mid-fifties, and
look at the much-publicised
match between Britain and the
USA, and you could make
more or less the same
statement.
Today, we are not exactly in
the process of a revolution in
bidding, but we seem to be
reverting to a more natural and

I should like to be able to
force with 3 Clubs. Surely 4
Hearts must be on. The only
thing which prevents me from
putting such principles into
practice is the thought that
partner, with an above average
holding himself, will leap
incontinently into a
Blackwood 4 NT sequence, and
I will finish up by going down
in 6 Clubs, whereas 4 Hearts

Wife poses interesting


problem for husband

By Abigail Van Buren
0 97 by CIICS0 Ttiw-N. Y. News Syd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: My husband carries a picture of me
without any clothes on in his wallet. I posed for it just for
him. He says he likes to look at it occasionally at work, but
he wouldn't show it to anybody. Yet whenever I meet one of
the guys he works with, the going over I get with his eyes
gives me the feeling that he might have seen the picture.
I am a very shy person, so maybe it's just undue
concern on my part. But on the other hand, I'd rather have
my husband looking at MY picture in the nude than a girl's
in a magazine.
What should I do? WORRIED
DEAR WORRIED: Since you obviously doubt your hus-
band's word, ask him to destroy the picture In your pres-
ence, and rely on his memory. Don't poef for another, and
you won't have to worry.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 75-year-old gentleman with a
lovely 21-year-old granddaughter who was recently mar-
ried. Her mother in law, who appears to be between 55 and
60, says: "Hello, Grandpa," everytime we meet.
I do not object to my grandchildren calling me "Grand-
pa," but I do not wish this woman to address me in that
manner.
The last time she called me "Grandpa," I called her
"Grandma," and she quickly said: "Oh, no, not yet!"
I said, "Well, you're old enough to be one."
Without making an issue of it, how can I let this wom-
an know that I do not wish for her to call me "Grandpa"?
A.K. IN CHICAGO
DEAR A. K.: Don't rely on your "Hello, Grandma"
response to get the message to her. Simply-tell her good-
humoredly that the right to call you "Grandpa" is reserved
for your grandchildren.

DEAR ABBY: I am having a small disagreement with
my mother in law. A friend of hers sent my husband and
me a wedding present. I didn't know the lady, but my
husband did. One day when my husband and I were in a
restaurant my husband spotted this lady, so we stopped and
talked to her. I mentioned several times in the conversation
how much we appreciated her wedding present and before
we said goodby I thanked her again for it, and so did my
husband.
My mother in law insists that I should write this lady a
thank-you note. She says a verbal thanks is not enough. I
think a verbal thanks is just as good as a written thanks.
What do you think? WAITING TO HEAR
DEAR WAITING: You" mother in law is right. Send
the lady a written thank-you &ote.

CONFIDENTIAL TO "D AND G IN SANTA BAR-
BARA": Incest consists of sexual Intercourse or marriage
between two persons who cannot be legally married be-
cause of blood relationship. It is a serious criminal offense
in all of the states. Yes, this includes first cousins in those
states which prohibit such marriages.

Two films on

evangelism

BAHAMAS Youth
Evangelism Fellowship will
present two public films
"Angel In Ebony" and "Heart
Cannot Run" at Government
High School Auditorium on
Saturday January 5 at 8 p.m.
Angel In Ebony is the true
story of Sammy Morris, an
African prince whose
miraculous conversion in the
jungles of Africa began a series
of events that were to alter the
course of an American
university and transform the
lives of those he met. It
expresses the need for both
salvation and dedication.
The Heart Cannot Run -
documents the ministry of a sin-
gle church that felt the heartbeat
of Chicago's "inner city." It is
the story of the ghetto rat
infested, overcrowded,
sub-standard home of the poor,
the foreign and the fatherless
children; filled with
unemployment, hunger, crime
and drug addiction.
It is also the true story of
Bill Leslie, college and
seminary graduate and
professor at Northwestern
University, who believes that
involvement is more than
pew-warming, and through a
redesigned life and ministry
makes Christ relevant to a
broken city where black and
white live side by side.

In loving memory of Mrs.

departed this life December
28th 1969.
You've been away four years
now. your life has passed ane
gone.
Nevertheless the question
lingers on: Why you?
It must be true that the good
die young and never seem to
reap their just reward
But could this really be true?
Could someone so good.
loving, and kind just passed
away and that is all?
Momma! they say that time is
the Great Healer of al;
wounds.
But can time EVER heal such a
wound as this?
Can one EVER explain the
great emptiness?
Can one EVER express how
much you are missed?

Sadly missed by the family.

His two losses, were both

George returned to the
Bahamas winning three fights
in 1955 before embarking on
an odyssey that was to keep
him fighting and living abroad
for some ten years.
The 1956 campaign,
beginning and ending in
Florida, produced four
victories in five outings. Most
notable were decisions over
"Georgia Kid" Bussev and
Andy Mayfield. The Mayfield
win squared their four bout
series at two each. The lone

loss was to flashy Jimmy
Morris who like Mayfield was a
tough competitor.
Disillusioned with the
American scene where he was
winning without making any
real progerss, Georee Knowles
suddenly left Miami,
surfacing later in Kingston,
Jamaica.
Knowles found the island to
his liking, establishing a solid
base for his fistic and business
activities. There he acquired
further proficiency in the
architectural field, a career he
planned to pursue after leaving
the ring.
The year 1957 was to be his
last year of boxing. Fighting
before appreciative Jamaican

fans, George appeared to reach
the peak of his game. He beat
highly regarded West Indians
Ozzie Nelson, Hugh Serville
and middleweight contenders
Sammy Walker and Sugar Boy
Nando champion of the
Netherland Antilles.
Leaving Kingston briefly, he
journeyed to Aruba losing in
nine rounds to Dutch light
heavyweight champ Wim
Snoek. In his last bout, George
knocked out Benjamin Lewis
in two rounds in Kingston.
It was the Bahamian
champ's 51st fight, 42nd
victory and 17th knockout. Of
his nine defeats only two by
Charlie Joseph and Wim Snoek
went unavenged. A fine record
indeed.


His sojourn in Jamaica
ended in the middle sixties
when he returned to his native
Bahamas. No longer was he the
superb physical specimen that
left years before, but a man
broken in spirit, only a shell of
his former self. He confided to
me once that it took at least
one quart of strong drink to
satisfy a daily craving.
For a time in the building
boom, he held his own but
when hard times came, lihe
drifted further into limbo.
George and I continued to
be clsoe friends, often enjoying
reminiscences of the days when
he was undisputed king of the
ring locally. "Junior," he
would say, "they all look alike,
George Knowles beat them
all."
