back staff & hours

By MIKE LOTHIAN
THE TEXACO OIL COMPANY'S announced 30 percent cut-back in gasoline supplies in the Bahamas has in
practice become as, high as 50 percent, resulting in shortened hours and, in at least one case, staff cut-backs at the


retail service stations.
This was revealed today in a
Tribune survey intended
to determine whether there is
any real gasoline shortage being
encountered by New
Providence motorists.
The survey revealed that
only the island's Texaco retail
dealers are unable to get the
gas they need to meet
customers' demands and that
the oil company's allotment
system is at best eratic, with
the result that some dealers
have little or no problem
getting enough gas to go
around while others have had
their supplies cut far more than
the official 30 per cent.
Curiously, one Texaco
dealer said he was all right
where high-test gasoline is
concerned but has problems
getting 100 octane, while all
others reported a directly


opposite situation: they can
get 100 octane but not
high-test.
A sampling of Esso and Shell
stations indicated that those
dealers can get almost all the
gas they need, but have
nevertheless been given
monthly limits over which they
cannot go.
NO OCTANE
Walter Gray, assistant
manager of the ABC Texaco
station on Collins Avenue, said
this morning that he has had
no 100 octane fuel since last
Saturday.
lie said on that day the
station ordered 3,000 gallons
of high-test and '500 gallons of
100 octane
On Monday "they gave us
1,000 gallons of high test and
no octane," Mr. Gray reported.
Yesterday, he said, 2,000


gallons of high-test and 500
gallons of 100 octane were
ordered. No octane was
delivered and only 1,000
gallons of high test were
pumped into the station's
tanks.
RATIONED
At Malcolm's Tyre Service, a
Bay Street Texaco outlet, a
spokesman said the station had
been rationed to 12,500
gallons of high-test a month,
against its normal volume of
over 20,000 gallons.
The station had used up its
December allotment by a
"couple of days before
Christmas." and no more was
forthcoming until Thursday.
the spokesman said.
She said "octane is not
rationed," and they have not
run short.

By NICKI KELLY
THE LOWLY BICYCLE, almost an anachronism in Bahamian
society, is making a big comeback in the wake of fuel shortages


and rising automotive costs.
"I don't quite know yet
whether it's because people are
more health conscious or
whether it's the result of the
fuel crisis," says Nassau Bicycle
Company owner Alfred
Dupuch.
One thing Mr. Dupuch is
certain about however is that
sales of bicycles, and to a lesser
extent motorbikes, have
increased some 25 per cent in
the past six weeks.
And surprisingly, the best
customers for the peddle bikes
are businessmen. Other less
adventuresome types are
turning in their second cars for
a motorcycle, which is a lot
less expensive all around.
But even in this new mode
of transportation there are
likely to be shortages, again
because of the overall fuel
situation.
NBC's bicycles come
principally from the United
Kingdom which has gone on a
three-day work week. Others
come from Japan, as do all of
the company's motorbikes.
Japan has probably been
hardest hit by the fuel
shortage. This has already been
manifested in the availability
of cycles to dealers.
Mr. Dupuch told The
Tribune that prices are going
"absolutely crazy," and there
will definitely be a problem
obtaining sufficient supplies to
cover demand.
TAXIS & JITNEYS
Yesterday's announcement
of yet another increase in gas
prices will certainly be
reflected in the cost of a
taxi-ride. Taxi-Cab Union
president Richard Moss said
today.
The union's executive
committee is expected to meet
over the weekend to determine
to what extent fares will have
to be increased.

"There will definitely have

to be an increase, and we are
hoping that it can be put into
effect between now and the
first week in January," Mr.
Moss said.
The union's recommen-
dations however, will first have
to be submitted to the Ministry
of Transport for approval.
Mr. Leon Rahming, owner
of Economy Jitney, pointed
out that after ten years he has
no alternative but to raise fares
in the light of increased
insurance costs, the rising price
of replacement parts and
higher licence charges.
From December 31
Economy's prices will go up 5
cents. "We have tried to absorb
the increases for as long as we
could because the jitney, is,
after all, the main
transportation for the mass of
people," Mr. Rahming said.
But with gasoline costs
adding to the other burdens,
Economy has no choice.
DELIVERY CHARGES
The gas hike may also lead
to business firms having to
charge for deliveries.
While it is still too soon to
know what the increases will
add to overhead, local
companies are keeping a close
watch on the situation.
"For the time being we are
going to absorb the extra cost,
but with all the charges (gas
and electricity) coming at one
time, operating costs are up,"
says Mr. Sidney Sweeting, a
director of John S. George.
"The question we will have
to consider is just how much
the merchant can absorb
before he is forced to do
something," Mr. Sweeting
added.
Package Delivery Service.
like all the other customs
brokerage firms whose business
is transportation, is also hoping
to hold the line on charges.
"At the moment we are
trying to figure out how much
gas we use and how far the
higher costs will eat into our
profits," said Mr. Chris
Heseltine, vie-president of
Package Delivery.
One way of conserving fuel,
Mr. Heseltine observed, is to
see that the trucks are at
capacity when going out to
make deliveries. "It may be a
little bit slower, but it will help
keep costs down," he said.


the gas prices went up
yesterday the station has sold
"only a couple of gallons" of
100 octane.
Mr. Wells said his station in
fact ran out of high-test over
the Christmas holidays,
ordered 3,000 gallons, and on
Thursday got only 1,000
gallons.
Hie said he is not rationing
his gas. "When we run out we
run out," he commented.
"January is going to be
worse," he predicted.
RUNS OUT
The operator of Lockhart's
Texaco on West Street told
The Tribune that the station
has run out of fuel several
times "for a day or so," and
has had to turn away some
customers.
But Vivien Lochart,
operator of Texaco's
Chippingham outlet, said "I
don't see any shortage. I get all
the gas I order with no
difficulty at all."
He offered the explanation
that his is a "slow" area and his
volume is low compared to
other stations anyway.
George Gabriel, manager of
the Windsor Field Texaco
station, said he used to sell up
to 30,000 gallons of high-test
and 100 octane a month, and
"now they are only able to give
me 16,000."
As a result, he has brought
his daily closing time up from
nine o'clock at night to 6 p.m.
On both Christmas Day and
Boxing Day he had no
high-test, he said.
THEFT ATTEMPT
In addition, he said, several
unsuccessful attempts have
been made to steal gas from his
pumps.
He said on the night of
December 20 someone broke
into his station and turned on
the switch feeding power to
the pumps. But apparently
they were unable to operate
the pumps, because no fuel was
missing. Mr. Gabriel now locks
his pumps.
Earl Rahming, operator of
the Texaco station at Blue Hill
Road and Independence Drive,
said that because of the
shortage he has had to lay off
five of his eight employees and
cut his hours of opening.
LAY-OFFS
He said he used to stay open
until midnight, but he now%
closes at 7 p.m. He has laid off
his night staff of four and one
of his day-time employees. He
has also stopped operating on


Sunday.
In addition, he will sell no
more than seven dollars worth
of high-test gas to any single
customer. "If they want 100
octane they can get it."
The reason: "We have been
cut more than 50 per cent. I
can only get less than half what
1 was originally getting."
Mr. Ferguson, manager of
the Oakes Field Texaco
station, said he has reduced his
hours twice and is considering
closing on Sundays and
reducing staff because of the
difficulty in getting gasoline.
HALF SUPPLY
Mr. Ferguson said he can
now get up to only 11,500
gallons of high-test a month,
although he used 21.500
gallons in October and, with
the Christmas rush, could have
sold as much as 26,000 in
December.
lie said he ran out of
high-test last Sunday, and only
at 11 a.m Monday did he
receive 1,000 gallons of 100
octane and 500 gallons of
high-test. lie immediately
asked that 1,000 gallons of
each be delivered on Friday,
and he was told he would get
it. What he got was 500 gallons
of each.
Mr. Ferguson said he used to
stay open until 10.30 at night,
but he had to cut that back to
7.30. and yesterday he had to
close at 5.30.
lie has already told his staff
that if the situation does not
improve there will have to be
lay-offs soon. In addition, if he
cannot get the gas he needs
next week he will not open on
Sunday anymore, even though
area residents depend on him
to get their Sunday Miami
llcHerald.
"1 don't know what to do or
which way to run," Mr.
IFerguson said. "I am much
disturbed."
RENTAL IIIKE
On top of their other
problems, it is understood,
Texaco dealers face a $200
increase in their rents
beginning next month.
Although Esso Standard Oil
has made no announcement of
any cut-back in its local
supplies, Ronnie Roberts of
Esso East Bay Street station
reported that "I am not getting
the gas I should get. They cut
me 4,000-5,000 gallons" a
month. Despite the cut.
though, "I haven't had to turn
anyone away.
A spokesman for Esso's East
Street outlet said he is being
limited to his monthly average
over the past year. so that if
there is any increase in demand
there can be no corresponding
increase in his supply.
A spokesman for another
Esso station said he is not
being rationed yet, but he
understood that "in early
January we might go into
rationing which would limit us
to 12.000 gallons a month,"
much less than half his current
supply.
Just in case there is a sudden
shortage, he is keeping a
2.000-gallon reserve at his
station.
A spokesman for Esso's
Nassau Street station said he is
presently getting all the gas he
orders, but he added that he
has been told that there would
soon be "problems" getting
100 octane.
"I've got octane now, but
when it's gone I don't know
when it'll be replaced," the
spokesman said
Several Shell station
reported they have had limits
imposed on the quantisu of gas
they can get. but no hardship
or shortage has resulted so far


FOR PRIVATE FLYERS
AVIATION FUEL for private pilots flying in the
Bahamas is now unavailable unless pilots give Civil Aviation
authorities 21 days' notice in writing of their needs.
The "no fuel" notice to flyers was posted at the Nassau
International Airport this week, The Tribune understands,
and has been brought about by the worsening fuel crisis
world-wide.
It is believed that there is less than 8.000 gallons of
aviation fuel for general and private aircraft available at
present in Nassau. And the situation is just as bad in
Freeport.
A source told The Tribune that there was no indication
what the situation would be like in January, although it was
not expected that there would be any improvement.
The Tribune reported yesterday that Pan American
World Airways was cutting back its flight schedules to the
Bahamas by 50 percent as from January 8, as was Delta,
while Eastern Airlines was cutting its services by 35
percent.
Prime Minister Pindling has painted a bleak winter in
tourism for the country, and the non-availability of fuel for
private flyers is likely to further curtail tourism here next
year.
Over 25,000 private flyers fly to the Bahamas every year
and account for a good percentage of tourist dollars to the
economy.



Britain begins 3-day


work week on Monday

LONDON (AP) Leaders of two labour unions Saturday
began preparing for fresh talks aimed at resolving disputes which
the Conservative government says are causing Britain's gravest
economic crisis since World War 11.


But even if the talks next
Wednesday are successful,
Prime Minister Edward Heath
was thought likely to persist in
his plan to cut industry to a
three-day work week to
conserve dwindling fuel stocks.
The three-day week, which
begins Monday, will probably
run throughout January. It was
ordered to counter the effects
of industrial action by coal
miners and train drivers.
Coal production has been
cut by a third in the six weeks
since the miners began refusing
to work overtime, preventing
most essential weekend
maintenance at the collieries.
The miners are demanding a
pay raise which the
government says would breach
its legislation designed to curb
inflation. They have rejected
an offer which, according to the
state management, would
increase average weekly
earnings from 41 pounds or
about $98 to 47 pounds -
about $112.
The miners want increases of
between seven pounds $16 -
and 12 pounds $28 depending
on grade. Lawrence Daly,
general secretary of the
Miners' Union, said Saturday:
"The men are not seeking a
great deal."
Wednesday's talks will try to
find a formula by which miners
will be paid for the time they
spend getting to and from the
coal face. At present they get
nothing for this "waiting time"
which also covers washing and
changing before and after
work.
The other dispute involves
train drivers who are operating
a ban on Sunday working and a
weekday go-slow in support of
demands for a bigger pay
differential over other rail
workers. As well as crippling
commuter services, the dispute
has hampered transport of coal
Ray Buckton. general
secretary of the Drivers' Union,
said Saturday: "I do not think


it has been made clear how
bitter the drivers are. Nobody
has listened to the men in the
past. They are very tired of
being ignored."
But he added lie will
approach Wednesday's talks
with the state railways board
"in a spirit of really wanting to
bring the dispute to an end."
The probable consequences
of the three-day week are
causing dismay among both
unions and industrialists.
Although precise results are
uncertain, production will be
severely hit and hundreds of
thousands, perhaps millions, of
workers will be laid off.

Chilean

graduates


refused

LONDON Britain has
declined political asylum for
seven Chilean university
graduates who wanted to study
here.
A Home Office
announcement said they would
have to leave Britain within the
next few days.
The seven five men and
two girls arrived here from
France Dec. 7. They said their
lives would be in danger if they
returned to Chile.
The Home Office said Home
Secretary Robert Carr decided
their claim to asylum "was not
well founded."
It added: "all aspects of
their case have been
thoroughly investigated and
they must leave the country in
the next few days either to
France or whatever other
destination they may arrange."
They had been due for
deportation to France Friday
but action was postponed
while leftist peer Lord
Brockway argued their case
with the Home Office.
Brockway said he was
"surprised and shocked" at the
Home Office decision.
He said he expected them to
try to go to Holland and
added: "They had some
affection for this country
because of its liberalism. They
will be a little disillusioned."
The seven asked that their
names be withheld, saying they
feared reprisals.

could find no grounds for
believing that refusal of
permission to .enter Britain
would expose the Chileans to
persecution. (AP).

ELECTRIC EN GINEERS

END WORK GO-SLOW


LONDON Electric power
engineers have ended a work
slowdown. Coal miners' leaders
met unexpectedly with state
officials but with no sign of
ending their slowdown which
has crippled Britain's industry.
The developments came
amid forecasts that nearly a
million Britons will be out of
jobs next week because of the
spreading effects of the energy
crisis and the work slowdown.
The engineers ended their
two-month ban on working
outside of regular hours and on
standing by for emergencies
while off duty.
Under a new agreement,
they will receive new higher
wages for working on an
off-duty emergency and for
standing by on Sundays.
The National Coal Board
which runs the state-owned
mines met unexpectedly with
miners' leaders. The four-hour
meeting ended with no
agreement, but both sides
arranged to talk again next
Wednesday.
The miners' refusal to work
overtime and on weekends has
cut coal stocks nad forced
millions into shorter working
hours and pay cuts.


The Department of
Employment announced that
400,000 workers have been
laid off in England and Wales
as a direct result of the fuel
crisis.
The British Steel Corp. said
shortly afterward that the coal
shortage may force it to
suspend 100,000 employees,
about half its work force, at
the start of the year.
Unemployment at the start
of the crisis was 490,000 of the
24-million-member work force.

Meanwhile, in Madrid the
Court of Public Order today
convicted and sentenced nine
workers and a Catholic priest
accused of illegal association to
terms of 12-20 years as asked
by the prosecution.
Marcelino Camacho was
given the maximum of 20 years
imprisonment and Father
Francisco Garcia Salve, who
staged a hunger protest strike
in prison, was sentenced to 19
years.
The trial of the defendants,
knowni as 'The Carabanchel


10" began the day Spanish
Premier Luis Carrero Blanco
was assassinated in Madrid.
There was no immediate
work if defense lawyers would
appeal the trial, held under
tight police security. The case
could be taken to the Spanish
Supreme Court which can rule
on sentences but not substance
of the trial.
Defense lawyers argued the
prosecution never proved there
was a meeting of the
defendants when they were
arrested June 24 at a convent

fight crime


VIRGIN ISLANDS Horses
are being pressed into service in
the Virgin Islands police force
in an effort to stem growing
crime in the rural and beach
sections.
Capt Raymond
Chesterfield, head of the police
stations in St. Thomas and St.
John, two of the major islands
in the U.S. Virgin Islands
group, said five horses had
been donated to the force.
Chesterfield said the
mounted patrols will be used
mainly in rural areas in an
effort to check thefts of
television sets, radios,
appliances and other household
items and along beaches where
drug abuse among youngsters is
a growing problem.

The veteran policeman said
he wanted to "use every means
possible to control criminal
elements in the islands."

WASHINGCTONIC --J 1c


W37 1IN" U.b.
district judge John J. Sirica has
been ordered to reconsider a
ruling that denied that Senate
Watergate Committee access to
five White House tape
recordings and other
documents.
Sirica said Oct. 17 that he
lacked jurisdiction to enforce
the committee's subpoenas for
the tapes and documents. But
since then congress voted him
the power.

The U.S. Court of appeals
ordered Sirica to consider the
case in light of the new law. It
acted on an appeal by the
Senate committee.
The taped conversations
were between the President
and former counsel John W.
Dean III on Sept. 15, 1972,
Feb. 28, March 13 and March
21, 1973 sometimes with
others present. The subpoena
asked for tapes of two
conversations on March 21.
The special Watergate
prosecutor already has all but
the Feb. 28 tape. Sirica had
backed the prosecutor's
subpoenas and recently ruled
the tapes could be played for
the Watergate grand jury with
the exception of certain
portions that the president
asked to have withheld.
President Nixon allowed the
new jurisdictional powers to
Sirica to pass into law without
his signature Dec. 17.
Two days later the
committee exercised its new
authority and subpoenaed
nearly 500 tape recordings and
hundreds of other items from
the White House.
Deputy Press Secretary
Gerald L. Warren called the
request incredible but gave no
word on whether the White
House would comply.
The Washington Post,
quoting White House officials,
said Friday that Nixon and his
advisers decided to resist the
Senate request at all cost "and
will either ignore it or try to
stave off its demands by
engaging in a protracted court
battle." (AP)

The Mounted Police Unit
which Chesterfield said had so
far not cost the Virgin Islands a

operation in the near future
hut Chesterfield declined to set
a specific date.

"We do not expect to

noticeable," said Chesterfield

rumours

rife
LONDON Rumours of
royal romance were rife
today.
Word leaked out that
Prince Charles has invited
pretty Lady Jane Wellesley to
join his family for new year's
celebrations in the English
countryside at Sandringham.
Lady Jane's father, the
Duke of Wellington,
immediately threw cold water
over the rumours,
He told newsmen he had
"nothing more to add" to his
previous denial of an
imminent royal engagement
between his 22-year-old
daughter and the 25-year-old
hier to the throne.
Queen Elizabeth, Prince
Philip and other members of
the Royal family are spending
the New Year's holiday at
Sandringham House in
Norfolk county, 100 miles
northeast of London.
Prince Charles and Lady
Jane, travelling: separately,
were expected to join the
house party.
The Prince has been seen
frequently this year in her
company.
She was a guest of the
Queen at a house party in
Windsor during royal Ascot
week in the summer. More
recently, Charles spent a week
in Spain as guest of her
father.
On her return from Spain,

Lady Jane denied rumours of
romance as "utter nonsense."
The Prince flies to

From distant places


By ETII \\ DUPUCIl
A iFW MONITHS ago a young woman, who originally came
from Lone Island. asked me for a recommendation. She told me
that she was leaving the Bahamas and planned to make a new
home in Australia.
I was pleased to give her a recommendation because she has
excellent qualifications but I doubted that a single woman could
break through in Australia, which is a hard man's country.
But apparently she has "made it". I received a card from her in
which she wote: "I do hope that you are as happy in your new
ountvr as I am in mine. Such lovely country, kind, courteous,
liclpful people. One can't look for more. I begin to work Monday
July 9th and am very happy."

Foday I am going to bring you a few bits from distant places.
As you know. Forbes Burnham won a sweeping victory at the
polls, thereby securing his place of power in Guyana.
The outcome of this election did not come as a surprise to
anyone. Nor was it important to democratic states which way it
went
Dr. Cheddi Jagan, leader of the opposition, is a declared
Marxist. But Forbes Burnham's far left Socialist doctrine is
certainly border line.
China is godmother to this former British colony. And it has
tired strong links with Cuba.
Russia has long been established in Cuba.

One of the West Indian speakers at the Mental Health
Conference held in Nassau this summer declared that
uncniploinent is the growing problem in the Caribbean. There is
no sign ot improvement in the situation and there is an
undercurrent of unrest in some of the Islands, especially Trinidad
iand Jamaica, with massive unemployment rolls.
Unemployment is growing in the Bahamas too. But, it has not
yet reached crisis level. I hope it doesn't.
The Government in Washington looks on this deteriorating
situation in the Bahamas with great concern because everywhere
today the Russians and the Chinese are sitting on the sidelines
lust watching and waiting, eager to fill the gaps created by the
handing over of power by Britain to island governments.
For the moment at least the Watergate scandal in Washington
has rendered Uncle Sam impotent in world affairs.

_If Britain withdraws her support from banana, sugar and runi
-foducing islands in the Caribbean when she enters the European
common Market. the economies of some if not all of these
lands may collapse completely.
When people are in trouble they will turn to anyone.
Should this happen the people of the Caribbean may have
Fason to regret the day they severed ties with Britain.
This much is certain ... as time passes after Britain enters the
uropean Common Market she will gradually become less and less
interested in safeguarding the delicate thread that binds the
British Commonwealth of Nations today.

Sphere is evidence of this active movement by the Communist
glotts everywhere.
The Swiss Press Review and News Report of July 9th printed a
sty revealing that "The Chinese Embassy in Cyprus is to be
considerably expanded. It is soon to become one of the largest in
Sirope. This follows increased Chinese interests in Malta and
several other South European countries.
'Cyprus in particular, in the Chinese view, is ideally situated
fn Europe, the Middle East and Africa; and it is becoming clear
ttSt the Chinese are unwilling to leave any important strategic
a4a to the tender mercies of the Soviet Union. Interest in the
Ngditerranean is a kind of compensation for Soviet agitation in
f~Bour of our Asian security pact a Russian invasion into an
armia that Chinese consider' that should be left to them."

3n an article on Malta the Swiss Review & News Report reveals
as"a striking example of thie new type of aid now flowing into
t!S island is that resulting from the establishment of diplomatic
relations with the Peoples Republic of China in 1972.
2'Undct the terms of an agreement signed in 1972, providing


(4t an interest-free loan of 16,930 million Maltese pounds, the
Clfinese have become one of Malta's most assiduous benefactors.
Ti&t loan will be used to build a dry-dock to accommodate
shIs of up to 300.000 tons deadweight, as well as to construct a
glswork and a chocolate factory. The dry-dock facility, one of
th0 largest in the Mediterranean, will, it is hoped, benefit from
thl proximity of the Libyan oil fields."
The reference to the dry-dock: for Malta recalls the
announcement recently made by the Bahamas Development
C(iporation, a "subsidiary of the Bahamas Government, that it
ha before it a proposal for building a dock in the Bahamas
cable of handling super-tankers.

Another bit from the Swiss Report reveals that the Soviet
Uiron has been making a special effort lately to extend its
influence in India in the cultural field. This follows the signing of
th Treaty of Peace. Friendship and Cooperation between th,
twI. countries nearly two years ago.

More cheerful news comes in a fortnightly bulletin published
by jNESCO for the use of press, radio and television.
in three articles in a recent publication it reports:
SA revolutionary process for the desalination of sea water has
ben demonstrated by its inventor, Professor Abraham Kogan. of
thefaculty of Aeronautical Engineering at the Technion,srael
Institute of Technology.
The new process is expected to enable fresh waler to be

1973 was not a total loss


FOR A YEAR outside of a world war, 1973 was one of
the worst in the last few decades.
The great democracy of the United States was shaken to
its very foundations by the Watergate affair, perhaps the
greatest political scandal ever to take place in modern times
in a democracy. Arrogant and ruthless men whose attitude
was chillingly reminiscent of the Nazi mentality managed to
rise to the centre of power and proceeded to subvert the
very ideals upon which the Republic was built.
For the first time in many years politicians, the news
media and the average citizen were openly talking about -
indeed, demanding the impeachment of an American
President, the same President who, only months before was
re-elected by one of the biggest landslides in American
history!

In the Middle East those ancient enemies, the sons of
Shem, were at it again, this time bringing the world
dangerously near to another big war. The Arab-Israeli
conflict severely strained the Western Alliance and the
effects of oil diplomacy is bound to be felt for many
months to come, perhaps years.

Further east, Russia and China, the mighty giants of
Communism glared at each other across their frontier and
made ominous noises. The possibility of open war between
these two nations and the consequences of that for the rest
of mankind is something that hovers like a grim shadow
across the consciousness of the world.

And so it went in 1973. But the year was not a total loss.

The detente between East and West seemed to have
moved towards an encouraging degree of permanency.
Peace is catching on, however slowly, in Indo-China. Even
the Irish appear to be getting into the spirit of conciliation.
And man continued his dramatic and fruitful exploration of
space in 1973.

At home a new flag was hoisted over the Independent
Commonwealth of the Bahamas. But even as the
celebrations took place there was worried talk of the
possibility of violent dismemberment of the nation.
Fortunately, the worst did not happen but the whole effort
for the separation of Abaco left some scars which can only
be healed with the passage of time and the exercise of
patience and goodwill.

Even as the Bahamian people prepared to celebrate the
birth of their new state with the promise of equality and
freedom, the yet unfurled flag was dishonoured by a
heartless and spiteful Government which set upon humble
families at Inagua because their parents dared to believe in


might all be better off if the money spent on Outer Space
Exploration had been used instead to go the other way and tap
the untold stores of energy far below the earth's surface.
This statement comes in a chapter by Christopher II.
Armstead, a British consulting engineer, who served as technical
editor for Geothermal Energy, a review of research and
development brought out in a UNESCO series on the earth's
sciences.
"The long term prospects .of geothermal energy," he writes,
"could be prodigious, for we have in the interior regions of the
earth a store of energy so vast that others, which may conceivably
lie within our grasp, pale into insignificance."
The western world certainly needs to consider any proposal
that might rescue it from the threat now posed to their very
survival by the small oil nations of the Middle East.

Going back to the first item in this article about the Bahamian
woman who has moved to Australia.
I wonder what the future holds for Australia and New Zealand,
outposts of the former British Empire. This area is increasingly
coming under the influence of Japan which they regarded with
terror when they were under the secure wing of Mother Britain.
Now they have no choice.
Interesting fact is that Japan is getting a stronghold in iEurope,
especially in Hitler's Germany'

And so we are all moving into a new wolId ... a world full of
new dangers and stark uncertainties.

As you may gather from some of the references I wrote this
article five months ago but the information is still relevant to the
news of today.

I:OOTNOTE TO HISTORY: The Catholic church in the Bahamas
must stand high in the esteem of the V:> ic: n.
Further evidence of this fact was the announcement last 'veek
that Hlis Holiness the Pope had appointed the Rev. John B. Finger
and the Rev. Preston Moss honorary prelates to His Holiness with
thle title "The Rev. Monsignor".
Two Monsignori for such a small diocese as the Bal ::is is an
unusual distinction, especially for such young Priests.
Father Finger was ordained 10 years ago, Father Moss ;tnne
years, both by His Lordship Paul Leonard Hagarty, bishop of
Nassau.
Friends of older Priests in this diocese may wonder wlhy they
were passed over. The reason is that this distinction is reserved
only for Secular Priests. The old Priests in this diocese are Monks
from St .;"hn's Abbey in Minnesota.
I used the words "further evidence" in introducing this subject
because of the fact that there are four knights in this diocese of
the Order of St. Gregory the Great, the Pope who sent St.
Augustine to England to convert the heathen English.
Samuel Johnson, Sigied Amoury and I are Knights Commander


in this Order and Ulysses Davis is a Knight.
There are only seventy Knights Commnander and two hundred
Knights in this Order in the world. I have never been able to i
understand how the Bahamas got four awards at the same time in
this very restricted Order.
This decoration is illustrated in "Orders and Decorations" b y
Vaclav Mericka with an introduction by Dermot Morrah, Arundel
Herald Extraordinary of England. Only the most important
decorations in all the nations, both ancient and modern, are
included in this book.

On December 1 lth The Tribune published a story from a
Canadian newspaper reporting that an Ottawa couple were held
up by armed men in Freeport and their car was taken from them.
The man complained to the Canadian newspaper that he gave the
story to the local newspaper and was told that it could not be
published.
In this column I identified the local paper of the area as The
Freeport News.
Yesterday's mail brought me a copy of The Freeport News of
November 23rd which carried a report of the case.
We are pleased to find that the man was not correct in the
impression he fonned of the local newspaper.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
*Our whole life is like a play. BEN JONSON


that promise of equality and freedom.
With undemocratic ruthlessness and unchristian savagery.
Turks Island-born fathers who thought they would share ii,
the new Bahamian citizenship were uprooted and deported
leaving their Bahamian children with no consolation except
their own tears.
The nation witnessed this atrocity in virtual silence not
realizing that to countenance such behaviour on die part of
the Government is to invite and to encourage further abuses
of power.
Then Mr. Oswald Bernard got his taste of it as the
Government pounced upon him because he, too, thought
he could act as a free man and a responsible citizen.
But fate has a way of demonstrating by events that
which reason sometimes fails to do. A PLP representative































who was born in Turks Island found Out thait hue was not a
citizen and had to vacate his seat. lie quickly became one
of a favoured group of three who were made citizens. The
other two were wives of Cabinet Ministers'

In a veam of exiianidinary political developments the
Bahamian people heard their Pitue\ Minister confess that hue
and his Cabinet had ignored, those vital issues which any
Government is supposed to have constantly before it.
It was because of i dependence, lie said by way of
excuse, that the time and attention and energies of th;
Government were diverted Iroin pressing social amid
economic problems such as unemployment, housing, cost
of living, alcoholism, illegitimacy and law and order.
flie history of 1973 will record that the Prime Minister's
speech was not met with demands for the resignation of his
Government nor even by sombre silence. But by cheers!

There was a tine when the Bahamas was able to turn to

however, the Bahamian people heard their (ove rnitent
blaming everything wrong with the country on' somebody
else.
Just a few yeais before the boast was that hund reds of
millions of dollars was available in the big outside world,
just waiting to come in. But the Government played the
fool and ignored the admonition to get it while the getting
was good. So 1973 found the country hardly able t o cope
with events. With rising prices wages remained mainly static
and Bahamians fought one another for jobs.
With the value of money dimini"bing every day l9 73 saw
taxes increasing every day. The poor were told ihiait they
had to learn to shoulder their responsibilities as citizens of
the new state. They had to make sacrifices. As if they had
not been making sacrifices in all the years before 1973.
During the year Government people were busy working
and propagandizing a scheme called National In&urance.
which would be a good idea if done in the light way and at
the right time. But there was a growing suspicion i n 1973
that the Government was more frantic about collecting
more dollars from the public than they were coracerned
about providing more benefits for the people.

There was no relief from waste in 1973. The $2 50,000
which was paid out in the scandalous affair of the garbage
trucks remained out of the reach of the public. No part of
it was returned to the Treasury in spite of the opinion
passed by the Commission of Inquiry which held a judicial
investigation into this matter.
Instead, more money was frittered away. Bahamanisair has
soaked up $3 million and the airline is still a liability to the
country as Bahamians are left stranded at airports and
tourists swear never to travel the national airline again.
Somewhere in the neighbourhood of S1 million was
spent on the Abaco Road and the road is as yet unfinished.
The New Year will very likely see another $1 miilli.n or so
going into this project.


As 1973 drew to a close the Government announced that
it was going to nationalize casinos. In the middle fone of
the worst economic situations ever to exist in recent years,
they made that announcement. In the meanti nme the people
across the way in Florida are gleefully preparing te,, launch
their own casinos.
If there are fewer and fewer Bahamians willing to sing
the praises of the Government of tlme Bahamas, tliere are
those in Miami and the Caynlan Islands who will certainly
drink champagne toasts to them as 1973 cones to an end.

With the casino announcement the rotten scans of the
Government started to come apart. The Deputy Prime
Minister hounded a brother Minister out of the Cabinet
right on the floor of the House of Assembly and the
favourite game of the PLP Government musical chairs
started all over again.

But there is always sunshine even behind the darkest
cloud. In 1973 a Consumer Association was formed.
Perhaps they will brighten 1974 by telling uswhich auto
company stocks parts for the cars they sell and which dry
cleaners will not break the lapel of your jacket below the
top button.

that some Soviet leaders,
eyeing prospective benefits
from detente, had sought to
play down the Middle East.
That policy led to Soviet
advisers being kicked out of
Egypt. But perhaps when it
seemed Egypt would go to war
no matter what, the
temptations became too strong
for Moscow to resist. It was
then the Kremlin Arab
specialists seemed to gain
influence.
Both before and after the
new explosion, Moscow
propaganda to the Arab world
had approved the idea of using
oil as a weapon. It had to be
obvious to the Russians that
Western Europe would have
fits at a threat to the energy
that fuelled its economies.
When the Americans tried to
supply Israel from NATO
bases, the allies forbade it and
the strain on the alliance
became severe. As oil
punishment exacted its toll,
the strain increased. Some
allies began turning their backs
on U.S. policy.
With or without Moscow
connivance, that oil business
now can give others ideas. The
U.S. and European appetites
for raw materials grow steadily.
What if the oil weapon
example so impressed other
producers that they began
pondering the merits of
threatening the advanced
nations with a "bauxite
weapon" or a tin or copper
weapon, or whatever?
Western Europe, caught in a
dilemma between need for U.S.
good will and life-and-death
dependence on Arab oil. is
fidgety and insecure these days.
For years the Soviet aim
palpably has been to neutralize
Western Europe, make NATO
obsolete, get the U.S. military
out. Perhaps the Russians see
new prospects, in view of
current disarray in the western
alliance, of yet more dividends
from the Middle East brouhaha
without much, if any, cost in
i terms of detente benefits.

that the search for eight
missing persons aboard the
ill-fated Sea Buoy II, which
was found wrecked about 55
miles north of New Providence,
is still continuing.
The ftarine rescue group has
not closed the case for the

Nassau from Freeport last
Friday, he said.
Last week, the U.S. Coast

made a sea search of the area
of Andros, the Berry Islands
and Eleuthera attempting to
locate the still unidentified
group.
Although the search is not as
massive as before, he said that
it continues all the same. And,
he said that vessels travelling

Panama are looking out for the
31-foot Tiny Tim, reported
missing with Captain William

European workers hard hit by oil crisis; millions out of work


By Jeff Bradley
LONDON (AP) The Arab
efl weapon has started to
squeeze European workers,
Reading to unemployment and
Otduced hours for thousands
_nd threatening the livelihoods
of millions more.
- An Italian newspaper survey
said 15,000 Italians have been

:In Britain, where the oil
shortage is coupled with an


even more crippling coal
miners' labour dispute,
400,000 were laid off
Thursday, making a total of
nearly 900,000 unemployed*
out of Britain's 25 million
work force. Experts predict 1
million may be idled by
February if the miners
slowdown continues.
One common market report
suggests unemployment in the
nine member countries could
double to four million next
year because of the oil crisis,
coupled with a predicted retail
price rise of 1 to per cent.
However, experts say
industry over-all has reacted

massive layoffs. They were
heartened by the decision of
the Persian Gulf oil producing

their oil production to all of
Europe except the
Netherlands, even though the
oil will cost much more.
Western Europe gets most of
its oil form the Arab states.
Nevertheless, the threat of
unemployment is a real one,
confirmed by the layoffs to

weeks and earnings felt by
many.

of the strain.
Most governments are still
referring to the crisis in terms
of a showdown in projected
1974 expansion from an
expected average 5 per cent
growth to perhaps 1 or 2 per
cent. They also predict
worsening inflation and
balance of payments problems.
Many governments have
asked industries to use less
electricity, reducing capacity
and, at the very least, providing
less opportunity for overtime
earnings.

It is the poorer Southern

Spain and Portugal that may

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Middlemen who process and
sell food increased their
margins sharply in November,
the third monthly gain in a
row, new market basket figures
by the Agriculture Department
showed Thursday.
The middleman increases,
averaging 3.3 per cent above
October, more than offset a
2.2 per cent drop in farm
prices and boosted grocery
costs to consumers 0.9 per
cent.
In November, a market
basket of food cost an annual
rate of $1,634 or $14 more
than in October. As computed,
the market basket includes
enough U.S. farm-produced
food to supply a hypothetical
household of 3.2 persons for
an entire year.
Farmers received an
equivalent of $707 of the


Germany alone in recent years,
most under contract, for
skilled and labouring jobs
Germans could not or would
not fill. They comprise 11 per
cent of the German work force
and counting their families,
total four million people.
A million Yugoslaves are
estimated to be working in the
more affluent nations of
Europe. France has 1.8 million
foreign workers, 8 per cent of
the work force. The
Netherlands has about 73,000
and the government has got
emergency powers to curb
further foreign labour if
necessary.
Most European countries
C(fer these immigrants the
same unemployment benefits
as native citizens. But offered
the choice of unemployment in
cold Northern Europe or
unemployment back home,
most would probably opt to
return home, officials believe.
HARDEST HIT
The industries likely to be
hardest hit by the energy
shortage are the chemical,
plastics and synthetic textile
firms which rely on oil as a raw
material.
The building industry also
expects cutbacks, linked to the
economic slowdown more than


basket last month, down $16
from October. But the share
received by middlemen in the
food industry jumped $30 to
$927 on an annual basis, the
figures showed.
The market basket statistics,
supplementing a formal report,
were provided by JSDA
officials at the request of
newsmen.
The figures also showed that
the annual market-basket retail
rate has declined $19 o. 1.2
per cent since the record high
of $1,653 last August.
But the November figures
showed that during those three
months the farm value dropped
$132 or 15.7 per cent while
the middleman share rose $113
or 13.7 percent.
Put another way, in
November it cost a household a
yearly rrte of $31.20 per week

the oil shortage itself. Auto
manufacturers in Europe,
already specializing in small
economical cars, are worried.
Fiat, Italy's largest auto
manufacturer, Ford of Britain,
General Motors of Belgium,
Volvo in Sweden and Citroen
and Peugeot in France were
among those who closed for all
or most of the Christmas and
New Year holiday periods.
In Italy. according to a


survey by the Milan newspaper
Corriere Della Sera, 9,000
textile, glass and ceramics
workers have been laid off in
Tuscany. In the far south more
than 3,000 Italian farm
workers were hit by lack of
work, and spring plantings are
in danger.
Tourism, Italy's largest
industry, has been hit. Country
restaurants in resort areas are
suffering by the Sunday and


holiday driving ban.
Some estimates say about
half a million hotel, restaurant,
and other tourism oriented
workers will lose their jobs,
and another two million are
likely to see earnings sharply
reduced.
Fiat, employing 120,000
persons, announced that it was
not hiring any more people,
and not replacing retiring
workers.

DEAR ABBY: I am a widow of one year, 68 years old,
living alone in my own home.
We had a roomer for four years in our spare room to
help pay taxes and insurance on our house. After my hus-
band's death, this roomer, who is about 60, began to take a
personal interest in me, which I resented, as he is not my
type.
One night, without warning, he came into my bedroom
and awakened me, saying he was "lonesome." I was fright-
ened, and screamed at him, and he went back to his room.
He apologized and said he would not do it again, but I gave
him 30 days notice to move, which he didn't want to do, but
I insisted.
Now he keeps calling me on the phone, asking to come
back. He says he "loves" me, but I know his intentions as
he even propositioned me on the phone.
How can I get him to stop calling me? I don't want to
anger him, and I don't want to get an unlisted phone
number. SEATTLE
DEAR SEATTLE: Ask your attorney to write this
man a letter and tell him If he doesn't quit harassing you,
you will bring charges against him.


DEAR ABBY: I am a middle-aged married woman. I
was walking toward my apartment building with several
packages when a man who lives in our building [also
middle-aged and married] pulled up in his car and said:
"Get in, and I'll give you a ride home."
I knew him, so I got in and he drove down into the
basement of the apartment building where the tenants park


their cars.
Walking toward the elevator,
How much do I owe you?"

show features an outstanding
cast in the 20th Century Fox

"Vampire Circus" is the lovely
Adrienne Corri and supported
by Thorley Walters, John
Mo.ulder-Brown and Anthony
Corlan. The screenplay was

curse of a vampire on all who
cross her path. The ancient
Vampire legend gets a chilling
new twist with the world of
sawdust and greaspaint as its
backdrop. The soulless tale,
that would make Barnum and
Bailes shiver, contains nman)
inacabre horrors such as ai
vampire aerialist, a panther
that turns into a huniin
vampire, a batwoliman,
vampire loose in the inirroi
maze of the fun house and
many other chilling plot twists.
The other half of the double
bill is "Countess Dracula'" ;nd
is also a unique tale of tenor
based on a true story taken
from HI ugarian historic .
"C('ountess Dracula" stars
Ingrid Pitt. Nigel (ree' andi
Sandor Eles. The spine-cl:illwing
film was produced hby


Alexander Paal, directed by
Peter Sasdy from a screen-play
by Jeremy Paul.

and gripping tension, both
films explore new worlds of
the macabre.

to eat, ani iacreasi of 27 cents
from October. but 35 cents less
than last August.
Officials have predicted that
retail food prices over all may
run about 15 per cent above a
year earlier during the first
quarter of 1974 and then may
slow their climb the remainder
of the year as larger farm
production goes to market.
Meanwhile, Chairman
Herbert Stein of the President's
Council on economic c Advisers
said Thursday that inflation
will continue at a high rate in
the first half of 1974 but
should level off to about 4.5
per cent in the second part of
.the year.

Reminded that he had
forecast a 3 per cent rate of
inflation for 1973 while the
actual rate had been 8.4 per
cent Stein admitted
forecasters were in error.

Analysis- Declarer has no

lost two tricks already, he can-
not afford to lose more than two
trumps. The natural play is to
run dummy's 49, hoping to find
East with the 4 J. This time.

As so often happens, the key
to the play is in the bidding.
West, who passed as dealer, has
already produced the & A K and
he must surely have the ,V Q.
too, for otherwise East would
have covered dummy's r J. So
West is unlikely to have another
king, let alone an ace; though
he may well have a knave.

Kid Barr at the international crossroads

_By GLADSTONE THURSTON


BAHAMAS middleweight sensation Kid his five week training in
Barr is really looking up and moving on. With of confidence from his
top class victories and experience under his and he invited them
belt, Barr has reached the stage where he is on sessions 4:30 at the Birdl
the verge of moving into international ranks. For speed, Barr works


* "Fighting as a junior middleweight, there
are no more available Bahamian opponents,"
noted manager Marty Goldstein. Barr finished
off Cleveland Williams with a unanimous
I decision and stopped Gypsy Mike Whymns in
three rounds. "Each fight becomes a milestone
in his young career as he steps in the shadow
of Elisha Obed's footsteps."

We won't




play fancy




says Craig

"I FEEL our chances of winning are good but we're not over
confident," said Marlins head coach Craig Weincek this morning
as he spoke about tomorrow's Crawfish Bowl game for the


championship of the Bahamas
the QE Sports Centre.
Weincek, former Walt
Whitman High School.
Washington D.C. head coach
has been hailed -as the saviour
of Marlins football.
Two months ago Weincek
took over the Marlins' coaching
position in the absence of
regular coach Ray Wrice and
guided the Marlins, from the
bottom of the league table into
the playoffs with wins over the
Hurricanes and Stingrays, and
then into the Crawfish Bowl
with dramatic upset win over
the Jets in the Boilfish Bowl
game.
"The turning point came in
the performance of the team
after the 31-0 win against the
Hurricanes that win gave the
Marlins the confidence they
lacked," said Weincek.
"After that game I had two
weeks to work with the boys in
preparation for the final game
against the Stingrays to qualify
for the playoffs.
"Before coming to Nassau I
had had four years experience
in High School coaching which
is based principally or
fundamental drills.
"In a way the league dowr
here is similar to a High School
league in that the players might
be older but they have had the
same amount of experience as
High School players."
"Bearing this in mind, I usec
these basic drills and made the
Marlins play hall rather thar
just walking onto the field and
hoping that everything would
work out as the other teams ir
the league tend to do.
"You see, we didn't beat the
Jets with any fancy play we
beat them by playing a gooc
fundamental game and that':
exactly how we're going tc
play against the Crusher


against the Freeport Crushers, at

By IVAN JOHNSON
tomorrow.
"In our last clash with the
Crushers we lost 18-14 but
now we are a much better
team.
"In that particular game we
gave awaiy penalties tomorrow
we are going to avoid giving
away penalties and concentrate
on stopping the Crushers
running game with sound
fundamental tackling and
blocking, as we did against the
Jets."


Weincek
rapid path
successive
attributed


believes the Marlins
to glory with three
victories must be
mainly to a sound


defence.
"Our defence is definitely
our forte," said Weincek.
"They've been holding off
opposing offenses while
feeding our own offense with
the ball.
"The nucleus of the defence
is formed by 'Little' Bill
Albury, Ronnie Turnquest,
Edison Butler. Steve
Thompson and Jim Low
Andy Key and Rickey
Thompson are the key men in
offense."
defence will be tested by
speedy Sharkey Martin of the
Crushers, described by many
players as the best running
back in the League.
During the regular series the
Crushers suffered only two
defeats, both inflicted by the
Jets.
On hand to kick off the
game at 12.15 p.m. will be the
Prime Minister, Mr. Pindling
and the Crawfish Bowl trophy
will be presented to the
winning team by Maury
Roberts.

service twice in the second set.
Newcombe came back in the
third set to lead 4-1 before
Case crept back to 5-5 and
then broke Newcombe's service
in the Ith game.
"I've been playing a lot of
top players and my .t'nfideiilne
is increasing." said Case. "I
went out there with nothing to
lose-and won."
Evonne -Goolagong moved
into the semifinals of the
women's singles with a 4-6,
6-3, 6-2 victory over fellow
Aussie Karen Krant/Lke.
Goolagung, sweltering under
the 102-degree heat, lound
Krantlcke a major obstaLle to
her chances of winning her first
Australian national title,
particularly when the 6-foot-2
inch Sydney girl rushed the
net.
Miss Goolagong will play
compatriot Kerry Melville in
the semifinals Monday.
Top-seeded Chris Evert of


the U.S., is slated to play
fellow American Janet
Newberry in the quarter-finals
Sunday.
Miss Evert's fiance Jimmy
Connors is scheduled to play
Crech Vladimar Fdnic in a
quarter-final match Sunday.
W-


It is true that Barr is not ready for the
welterweight king, but he is one of the most
. promising Bahamians to enter the pro ranks
since Obed. Making his debut early this year,
Barr has already fought two main events
scoring sensational technical knockouts in
:. both.
Training regularly at the Birdland Arena -
which is opened to all boxers Barr kicks off his
1974 campaign on January_4 when he takes on
one of Florida's finest middleweights, Charley
-" 'Baby' Fullard.
Fullard has a reputation of never quitting.
He is a fast shifty boxer with a variety of
combination punches. He is a stand up boxer
who is always in shape and Barr will need
everything he has learned to get past this
opponent.
Nevertheless, the young Bahamian fighter
agrees with manager Goldstein that each of
these tough fights has given him a wealth of
experience in his young career. In addition t'


Miami, Barr has a vote
many Bahamian fans
to his daily training
and Arena.
with Sugar Ray Sears,


against the attack, he works with K. I. Grant,
Muhammad Rolle or slugger Al Moss. Filling it
with all-around training is Barr's trainer, the
middleweight champ Rennie Pinder.
Heavyweight champ Boston Blackie is always
ready to give the Kid a few hard rounds.
Three weeks following the Fullard bout,
Barr will be up against yet another tough
opponent top Jamaican welterweight Roy
Goss on January 25 at the Birdland. Goss went
the distance with Obed earlier this year.
Pinder continues his vigorous training daily
at the Birdland as he prepares for his Brazilian
bout with world fifth ranked middleweight
Miguel de Olivera.
Sugar Ray Sears though fighting the flu is
still looking forward to his bout February 9 in
Paris, France when he and Freedie Major carry
the Bahamian colours in the great
Monzon/Napoles world championship fight.
Light heavyweight Bobby Lloyd, presently
living in Fort Lauderdale but fighting out of
Nassau, is keeping in top shape for his
upcoming bout with Tommy Hicks and then a
showdown with Mike Quarry.

Heavyweight champ Boston Blackie still
keeps in trim and along with Pinder carrys the
young amateurs through their paces getting
them ready for their regular Monday night
'amateur night' at Birdland.

Horse owners



want deadline



postponed


FOLLOWING a meeting of
the executive of the Bahamas
Race Horse Owners
Association with Racing
Commission chairman
Franklyn Wilson, the BHOA
has requested the racing
secretary and handicapper
David Strachan to postpone
the deadline for nominations
of horses to tomorrow,
midnight, BHOA secretary
Levarity Deveaux said today.
With the 1974 racing season
scheduled to open on Friday,
January 5 horse owners have
threatened not to nominate
their horses for the opening
meet unless the Racing
Commission increases their
share of winnings.
According to reliable sources
the owners are asking for. a
raise of 2/4 per cent which
would give them a 10 per cent
share in winnings.
The owners claim that the
cost of maintaining a horse has


risen trom $1200 per annum to
$18000 per annum.
With such a sharp rise in the
cost of living the owners say it
is impossible to maintain their
horses under the old pay
structure whereby they
received 7% per cent of
winnings.
Out of that 7 per cent the
owners must pay the jockeys
and trainers 10 per cent each
of the purse, as well as a
weekly wage throughout the
racing season.
A raise of 234 per cent would
mean that the Commission
would have to find another
$145000 to pay the horse
owners.
Under the present pay
structure the Government
receives 8 per cent of the
winnings. Five per cent
$25000)0 of this is fed into the
Public Treasury while 3 per
cent goes to the Race
Commission.


INGLEWOOD, California-
Heavyweight champion George
Foreman was offered one
million dollars to defend his
title against Jerry Quarry here
on March 25.
Promoter Don Fraser said he
made the offer in telegrams
sent to Foreman's adviser in
Oakland, California, and to a
Los Angeles area hotel where


Foreman was registered.
Quarry, 28, knocked out
Earnie Shavers Dec. 14 in New
York and ranks as the No. 4
heavyweight contender with a
47-6-4 record.
Madison Square Garden also
has offered Foreman one
million dollars to defend his
title against Quarry in March.
