MONTAGU HOTEL TAKES TOURIST OVER-SPILL


EVERY one of the 5,000
hotel rooms in New Providence
and Paradise Island have been
filled since Boxing Day, aind
the Montagu Beach Hlotci had
to be re-opened to help handle
the overflow of tourists.
Bahamas H!otel Associatio'm
president Anders Wiherg said
Montagu manager Tom Wright
"deserves a great deal of
credit"' for i- r the
Montagu's doors "strictly to
help out other hotels."'
The hotels suffering most
from the problem of having
more guests than beds were the


Sonesta Beach Hotel and the
Emerald Beach Hotel, Mr.
Wiberg said,
The problem really began,
he said, on Christmas Day,
when 180 tourists walked into
t h1 Sonesta without
reservations. The group had
booked rooms at the Sonesta
through the Sonesta group in
New York. but the New York
agents failed to consult the
local hotel before confirming
the reservations, and failed
even to tell the hotel the guests
were coming, T he Tribune was
told.


Mr. Wiberg said those 180
extra people, coming on top of
already full bookings,
"snow-balled all down the
line."
NO SPACF
Some of the 180 had to be
accommodated outside the
Sonesta, and as a result the
hotels that took them in had
no space left for later-arriving
guests with confirmed
reservations.
With the co-operation of the
Ministry of Tourism, Mr.
Wiberg said, the Montagu, shut


down on De. 18, re-opened 67
of its rooms on Dec. 27, and
the number went up each day,
hitting a peak of 134 rooms
on Saturday.
The Montagu re-opened on
condition it would close again
as soon as the unexpected
guests either ended their
vacations or were
accommodated in some other
hotel.
Mr. Wiberg said that from
Dec. 27 to today "we have lot
had a single bed available," and
that situation is likely to
continue for a few days.


"By January 2 the rush
should be over." he said.
Mr. Wiberg said that while
the shortage of rooms was
acute, it was not as bad as it
was two years ago, when the
Nassau Beach Hotel had to
send 87 people bacK to Miamni,
and when guests were sleeping
in lobbies and eating in
corridors.
Mr. Wiberg said there are
close to 10,000 visitors packed
into Nassau's hotels.
The Montagu closed almost
two weeks ago because of
continued operating losses and
lack of bookings.

ci'etingi with lluric Bodve,
chlinrnnot of the tran!d Bahama
branch of the Hotel and
Gilti ie \\ in ..r'.' Union and
with Ray Mart/, general
manager of Freeport's Holiday
Inn. The brief meeting Friday
was held to make arrangements
for today's session.


Meeting at the Labour
Ministry's Freeport offices at
11 a.m. today were to be Mr.
Darling, Mr. Parker and
Industrial Relations Officer C.
IH. Turnquest for the Ministry.
Among those representing the
union will be Mr. Boyde,
branch secretary Leo Douglas
and the union's chief organizer
Thomas Bastian. Leading the
Holiday Inn's delegation will
be senior vice president Larry
Cohen and Mr. Martz.
The union earlier this year
won recognition from
management as sole bargaining
agent for the hotel's 440
employees.
The union submitted its


proposal for the first work
contract on October 25.
Management made its
counter-proposal on December
9 and it was, according to the
Minister in a nation-wide radio
broadcast on the following
day, accompanied by the
threat if management's
proposal was not accepted in
full the hotel would be closed
on Dec 10.
A THREAT
Mr. Bodye confirmed that
there was a closure threat, but
said no ,pe, ifi date was given.

Resorts, developers of the

In its initial circular to
shareholders, the ni. iir.tr'rneri
of Resorts said it considered
purchase of the shares at this
time "a prudent investment for

BULLARD
course A former officer at the
Road Traffic Authority, Sgt
Bullard joined the C I D in
November 1971.
NEW TECHNIQUFS
His course is expected to
include newest techniques in
police administration, drug
detection teclniquies and
armed and unarmed combat
The 14-year police veteran
joined the force in 1959 and
also underwent special training


remain open "in respect to
Government."
The first and only
negotiation meeting held to
date was on Tuesday, Dec. 1 8.
In that one meeting, according
to Mr. Bodye, negotiators came
to tentative agreement for
compromise on virtually every
point in the contract, and the
two sides were to meet again
that Wednesday to draw up the
formal contract.
But on Wednesday, Dec. 19,
Mr. Bodye said, Mr. Martz
revealed he had been in contact
with Holiday Inn headquarters
in Memphis, Tennessee, and
had been told that he had no
authonrt to negotiate any
charngeb in management's Dec.
9 proposal.
"We are right back where we
started." Mr Bodye reported.
Also on Dec. 19 the union,
tired of the delays, registered a
dispute with the Ministry
Mr. Bodye said this morning
that Mr. Cohen, who flew into
Freeport for this morning's
meeting, "presumably has
authority to negotiate."
Union members are to meet
sometime this week to take a
strike vote to decide whether,
when the cooling-oft period
expires in the second week of
February, they will take
advantage of the legal sanction
to strike against the Hloliday
Inn.


36th. traffic

death for'73

MR. I N 'WORIlI A.
Roberts, 43, of Wulff Road.
became Nassau's 36th tratfic
fatality when his bus collided
with a wall on the Eastern
Road near Dick's Point
Saturday at about 5.30 p.m.
A tour car driver for many
years, Mr. Roberts was
employed by Howard Johnson
Tours at the time of his death.
He is survived by his wife,
the former Patsy Letricia
Hudson, five children
Anthony, Dale, Leslie,
Wentworth Jr. and Lisa; his
mother Doris Distan; one
brother Thomas Roberts and
three sisters, Merita Sturrup,
Noella Miller and Lavinia Bain.


The dlii. .tii of opinion
between the Imipki,. rand the
workers on how much
minimum wage rates should be
increased is so great that.
despite several weeks or
amicable progress in other-
areas of the new contract, a
breakdown in the talks at this
late stage is not unlikely.
And if the negotiators fail to
finalize the new contract
before the existing one expires
on January 6, the question of
when the new contract
provisiumns particularly those
relating to pay take effect is
likely to he another cause of
tiouble in the 'hii i ln iiti-oil
dispute.
After several false starts
marked by repeated deadlocks
and one three-hour wild-cat
strike ait eieht New Providence
and Paradise Island hotels on
November 15, the two sides
have made progress only in the
last three weeks, largely due to
conciliatory efforts of Labour
Minister Clifford L. Darling.
But all their time so far has
been spent on negotiating
conditions of work and other
relatively non-controversial
provisions of the new contract.
A union spokesman said this
this morning that they expect
to move into the wages section
later this week.

Quick and easy agreement
on salaries is unlikely. The
union's proposals for a new
two-year agreement included
increasing the minimum \% ,i'e
payable to various categories of
hotel workers by as much as
100 percent.
L'\PRIN I'ABLE
When the Association
submitted its counter-proposal
on wages on Nov. 23, under
pressure from the Minister,
union president David
Knowles' only reaction was
unprintable.
The employers suggested
increases, for the most part, of
two or three dollars.
Further complicating the
wages issue is the union's
demand that the increases be
made retroactive to Nov. 1,
because the last increases,
agreed in January of 1972,
were made retroactive to
November, 1971.
Casting a shadow over the
whole situation is the fact that
today is the expiration of the
53-day "cooling-off" period in
the official dispute registered
with the Labour Ministry by
the Union on Nov. 7.
A letter written to the
Union by Chief Industrial
Officer W. L. Lambert Parker
on Nov. 12, although vague,
was interpreted by both the

CABINET RE-SHUFFLE


EXPECTED SHORTLY

A RE-SHUFFLED CABINET is expected to take over
the government from January 1 although the Prime
Minister has yet to make an official announcement.
The Tribune understands that the announcement is being
delayed until the Ministers have been formally informed of
their appointments by Governor General Sir Milo Butler.
With the split-up of the Ministry of Development and the
establishment of Agriculture and Fisheries as a separate
Ministry, the number of Ministers will be increased from 11
to 12.
It is generally known that MR. ALFRED MAYCOCK is
to replace Mr. Carlton Francis as Minister of
Development. with Mr. Francis, who resigned his Ministry,
replacing Mr. Maycock as chairman of the Development
Corporation.
Taking over as Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries will
be MR. ANTHONY ROBERTS. presently Minister of Home
Affairs.
Transport Minister DARRELL ROLLE is being shifted
to Home Affairs, but, reportedly, with added responsibility
for Immigration and the Police, now in Prime MINISTER
Lynden Pindling's Portfolio.
It is understood that Mr. Rolle is being groomed by Mr.
Pindling for higher office.
Mr. Rolle is to be replaced at Transport by MR.
GEORGE SMITH. formerly parliamentary secretary to Mr.
Pindling.

It was his view that no proof
had been produced by the
prosecution to show that the
harm which was caused was a
result of terror.
"The totality of the
evidence supports the
proposition that there is room
for more than one view as to
the intent of the appellants and
bearause of this fact it was
incr.imbent on the prosecution

for the Magistrate to set out

to the conclusion that the
special intent is proved," he
added.

Maxwell J. Thompson has

The four men were each
sentenced by the Magistrate to
three months imprisonment.
The four were accused of
causing a fight at the Fox Hill
campaign headquarters of PLP
representative Lionel Davis on
August 25, 1972, resulting in
$ IS damage to a louvered
window.
Mr. Justice Thompson ruled
that from the record of the
case there was no proof that
the appellants were in
PLP headquarters unlawfully,
inasmuch as it was not clear
where these headquarters were
located. Further, no evidence
was provided to show whether
They were tresspassers on the
property.
The Supreme Court justice
also found no evidence to
support the claim that the
assaults were wantonly carried
out or were done with intent
to cause terror.
"It is obvious from the
evidence adduced before the

planned their course of action

possibility'

-- Lennon
JOHN LENNON.
(pictured), altering his
long-held opposition to a
reunion of the Beatles.
says he is now open to the
possibility of getting
together with Paul. George
and Ringo for one album.
"Well. it's possible,"
Lennon said in anll
interview published
Sunday. "If you had asked
me last year, I would have
said. 'No. No. way. I'm
not going back one step'..
but I just think anything is
possible now."
Lennon was interviewed
by Robert Hilburn. rock
music critic of the Los
Angeles Times.
Lennon, 33, made clear
he is not pushing the
reunion idea and said there
are at present no plans for
such a gathering.
"It's not like it's in the
offing or anything, but I'mn

The 36-year-old director of the

work from his suburban Buenos Aires
home Friday morning. Apparently, he
was driving alone in the last car of a small

the Arab states in return for peace.
The labourites, wo have ave held power without a break since
Israel was born in 1948, have lost part of their popularity through
military failures at the start of the October war, and are prepared
to return at least some war-won Arab land at the Geneva peace
conference.
The right-wing parties denounce territorial compromise as a
"surrender" that could put Israel back "within range of enemy
fire." Led by former terrorist Menahaem Begin and dominated by
Israel's traditional hawks, the anti-socialist Likud bloc hopes to
gain votes through public dissent at the government's failure to
forecast the October mideast war.
Israeli forces on the Suez and Syrian fronts were poised on
high alert after sporadic fighting with the Egyptians wounded an
Israeli soldier, and a guerrilla bomb ripped through an Arab bus in
the occupied Jordanian west bank, the military command said
Sunday.
The soldier was wounded in a clash near Qantara on the eastern
bank of the Suez ('anal, an army spokesman said. Israeli and
1g.gyptian forces duelled sporadically from dawn to sundown with
mortars, bazookas and small arms along the entire length of the
Suez front, lie said.
ihe Syrian front was reported quiet, but the Israelis have
claimed the Syrians recently have concentrated tanks, artillery
antid troops along the cease-fire line.
The Oct. 24 cease-fire has not completely cooled off the front
and daily shooting flare-ups have killed and wounded more than
20 Israelis. Egyptian missiles shot down two unmanned Israeli
reconnaissance planes over the Suez front and Israel claimed it
has captured 694 Fgyptians since the truce.
Meaniwhile, military authorities in the occupied west bank said
a small explosive charge went off in a parked bus in the town of
Naiblus. No one was injured in the blast and security forces
rounded tip several Arab suspects for questioning, the authorities
said.
A short time later. Israeli security forces blew up three Arab
houses in lthe village of Jamin on the outskirts of Nablus and
detained the owners on suspicion of Arab guerrilla complicity.


Skylab astronauts do


better on work load


iT'II SKYLAB 3 astronauts
and Mission Control have
reached basic agreement on
lihow to increase the flight's
scientific output, which is
behind schedule.
(Gerild P. C('arr,. William R.
Pogiue and I dward G(. (Gibson
agreed in a radio discussion
Sunday night that controllers
could schedule experiments in
periods the astronauts
previously had put off limits.
These include the daily
90-minute physical training
exercises and the hour-long
periods before and after sleep
when the astronauts relax and
discuss plans.
Commander ('arr also
promised to tr tto cut back the
preparation time for medical
tests and lFartli resources
passes.
"We can promise you some
relief in the physical-training
area and in the medical and
Farth resources prep." Carr
said. "And we can work some
modifications in the post
and pre-sleep areas. I'll promise
you some definite proposals
within 24 hours."
But Carr asked that Mission
Control not load them too
heavily, something the
astronauts complained about
several weeks ago That
complaint led to reducing the
daily experiments and naming
the off-limits areas.
"We were surprised when we
started out at a firehouse pace
and we made mistakes," Carr
said. "We do need our rest
periods to operate at the
fastest and most efficient pace.
We're doing that now and have
been for the last 10 days when
you took the pressure off.
"A guy needs quiet time to
stay healthy up here," he
added. "If he stays healthy, he
can be effective."
Capsule communicator
Richard Truly agreed that they
have kept up with, or been
ahead of. the daily schedule
the last 10 days a time when


they were heavily involved
with observing Comet
Kohoutek.
Farlier Sunday at Carr's
request. the control centre
messaged details of flight
acc o p li sh m e n t s. T[he
spacemen are in the 46th day
if a planned 84-day mission.
"Accomplishments to date
in the mission are less than
planned for Earth resources,
medical and corollary
experiments," the message
read.
It said that resulted from the
crew's request for a lighter
work load. its insistence on the
off-linits periods and failure of
a gyroscope that increased the
time needed to manoeuvre the
vehicle.
The message said the
astronauts had accomplished
14 of 24 planned Farth
resources runs. 196 of 228
hours of medical experiments
and 140 of 235 hours of
corollary experiments.
Corollary ex periments
i include engineering,
manufacturing and scientific
tasks.
lThe only area in which the
astronauts were listed ahead
was work with the solar
telescopes, where 153 hours
have been completed. That's
30 more than planned. (AP)

More bodies

likely to

be found
NASA scientists studied a
second batch of infra-red
photographs Sunday in an
attempt to determine whether
more bodies are hidden in a
wooded area where the remains
of four women were
discovered.
A plane from Kennedy
Space Centre, about 30 miles
from Titusville, Florida, took
the aerial photographs using an
infra-red sensor which is
sensitive to temperature
changes and can detect the
heat given off by decomposing
bodies.
The first batch of
photographs taken last
Thursday showed eight "hot
spots" possibly generated by
decaying bodies.
But a spokesman for the
Brevard County sheriff's
department said checks had
shown that no bodies were
hidden in the eight areas.
"They flew over the area
again Saturday and are now
checking the latest
photographs," the spokesman
added.
Meanwhile 20 deputies
trudged through the heavily
wooded mile long area where
the four bodies were found.
"We, are still searching for
bodies," the spokesman said.
Police said about a dozen
young women had been
reported missing in the
Titusville area in recent months
and speculated that some of
them may have fallen victim to
the same killer. (AP).

ISRAEL'S armed froces declared full alert along the
battlefronts Monday as the Jewish state voted on the future ot
Premier Golda Meir's government. The election outcome could
set Israel's course in peace talks with the Arabs after 25 years of
crisis in tlie Middle Fast.
Ballot boxes were opened -- some of them in rucksacks oni
soldiers* backs -- throughout Israel and in the occupied zones of
I gvpt and Syria. where troops watched for a possible Arab
surprise attack.
The first of 2.040.000 eligible voters crowded the polls after
dawn. amid last-miunute charges from the right-wing opposition
that Mrs. Meir's own labour alignment planned to oust the
75-year-old Premier and De)fense Minister Moshe l)ayan following
the election.
Twenty-one parties, from Co('nnunists to religious /ealots,
were competing for places in the 120-seat Kncesset or Parliament.
But voting centred on two massive blocs, Mrs. Meir's alignment
and the opposition Likud, and one major issue what to offer

The other ex-Beatles
have acknowledged the
possibility of a one-time

Asked about it in a 1970
interview, he said, "there

no point at all. There was

reason to do it anymore."
"If it happens, i'm sure

'Liberate


Jerusalem'

Faisal urges
KING; FAISAL of Saudli
Arabia launched the world's
largest religious festival today
with two million Moslem
pilgrims chanting "Liberale
Jerusalem." The 69-year-old
monarch walked barefooted
into Mecca's grand mosque and
washed ihe Kaaba, thile 50-foot
cube-shaped black stone that
stands as Islam's holiest shrine.
I he roaring chants were
clearly heard on Mecca Radio
as the nian \sho led the Arab
oil embargo against the United
States performed the two-hour
washing ceremony in seamless
white garments.
Sixteen Arab alnd African
radio stations hooked into the
Saudi network for a live
description of the annual event
that started the week-long
rituals of Ilaj. or Moslemi
pilgrim.
As "Prince of the Believers-"
and "(Guardian of the Holy
Places of Islanm." a religion
that clainis tno0e than 50
million adherents., it is tihe
Saudi nionaich's exclusive
privilege to wash Al Kaabha.
Moslems throughout the
world kneel and turn their
faces in the direction of the
Kaaba. when they perform
their daily prayers.
Prophet Mohanimed's tomb
in Medina, 200 iiles from
Mecca, is classified ,tis Islam's
second holiest shrine.
IIn his tria itional address to
pilgritns from i3 countries
Sunday night,. Faisal urged
Moslem nations to loIn forces
in a coinmmon struggle to
recover Jerusalem.
"We need to bolster our
solidarity, our faith in (;od to
stand strong and united against
the Zionists. the enemies of
Allah," Faisal said.
"Jews have no religious or
historic right to Jerusalem ...
their only shrine, the Iemple
of Solomion, was removed by
the Romans when they
occupied Jerusalem ... so Israel
has no right to remain in the
Hloly City."
Since the Arabs began
exerting oil pressure against
Israel's friends in the west,
Faisal has insisted on total
Israeli withdrawal from all
occupied lands, including the
Arab sector of Jerusalem, as
pre-requisite for a peaceful
settlement of the Middle Fast
conflict and ian end to oil
restrictions.
Israel occupied the Arab
part of the city in the 1967
Middle l-ast war.


Royal romance fires Britons
THOUSANDS of romance-hungry Britons ignored gasoline
shortages Sunday and drove tc this Norfolk county village of
Sandrmingham for a glimpse of Prince Charles and his friend Lady
Jane Wellesley.
Lady Jane, 22-year-old daughter of the Duke of Wellington,
has denied widely-published rumours of a love affair with the heir
to the throne.
But an invitation to spend new year's with the royal family at
their Sandringham estate revived the gossip and brought out the
biggest crowds seen in the village on a Sunday for years. Cars
were parked along country lanes in every direction.
Police estimated at least 8,000 visitors watched the 25-year-old
Prince and Lady Jane arrive for morning service at the village
church.
They travelled separately Lady Jane in a royal minibus along
with Queen Elizabeth II, and Charles walking with his father,
Prince Philip.


New terror

Ireland
RAMPAGING Protestants
were followed by new terror
in Ireland Sunday as
thousands of troops and
police searched vainly for
kidnapped West German
industrialist Thomas
Niedermeyer.
Mob violence by Protestant
extremists erupted after vwo
men, one a police officer,
were shot to death within 24
hours in Protestant districts
of this bomb-scarred capital.
Authorities said the mobs
attacked Donegall Pass
police station, bombed and
damaged a convent it
Rathmore, smashed a milk
depot near a major highway.
burned buses at Lisburn and
fired at a British army patrol
in Belfast's northern suburbs.
A 12-year-old boy was hurt
in one of the buses, but there
were no other injuries. The
demonstrations lasted until
Sunday's early hours.
The Roman Catholic-based
Irish Republicmi Army also
was reported active. Police
blamed IRA guerillas for
exploding a 120-pound land
mine at the border village of
Forkhill and exchanging fire
with British troops at
Donaghmore in County
Tyrone. Again, no casualties
were listed.
''W we've bd e c o inie
accustomed to the IRA but if
the Prods (Protestants) are on
the march a grave new
situation could be building
up," one official source
commented.
Police superintendent
William Edgar meanwhile
reported "growing fears for
the safety" of Niedermneyer,
44-year-old businessman and
diplomat who was abducted
from his Belfast home

MOST OF US will see the
new year in on January 1. The
Chinese all 900,000,000 -
must wait until January 23
before celebrating.
It's then that their new year
begins. This time it's the Year
of the Tiger which for the
animal itself must be a sick
joke.
There are only 4,500 tigers
left according to the World
Wildlife Fund the
international conservation
body. Two thousand live in
India where their jungle
homeland is being rapidly
eroded by leapfrogging
population. Next year there
will be another fourteen
million people needing to be
housed and fed.
The Indian Government is
trying to preserve their most
famous wild creature with
Operation Tiger. They are
clamping down on poaching
and all sales of the animal's
skin.
The tiger is just one of more
than 300 birds and 300 animals
in danger of extinction all over
the world.
1974 could see the last of
the kouprey -- a wild ox native
to Cambodia and Vietnam. At
the last count only fifty were
still alive. Their future is bleak
because they have little of their
natural habitat left -- it has
been burned and chemically
blighted by the non-stop South
East Asian War.
Other creatures facing the
fate of the dodo are the Java
rhino there are only 42 left;
the cheetah, too, is in drastic
decline with only about 4,000
remaining in Africa. According
to a World Wildlife Fund
spokesman: "It is still
decreasing and in many cases
we can't discover why. It is still
hunted and poached but it has


By Harrison Humphries
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Congress exerted new muscle
in foreign affairs policy in its
1973 session.
It passed over President
Nixon's veto a resolution
limiting the power of the
President to make war without
congressional consent.
It forced an end to U. S.
bombing in Cambodia and five
times cut off funds for any
further U. S. combat
operations in Indochina
without specific approval by
congress.
It remodeled the foreign aid
programme to emphasize
humanitarian programmes.
It cut funds generally for
military foreign assistance.
The exception was special
military aid to Israel to replace
losses of aircraft and other
equipment in the October
Arab-Israeli War. Congress
approved the administration's
request for 2.2 billion dollars.
Carried over to another year
was a move supported by a
Senate majority to force a
substantial reduction in U.S.
troop deployment overseas.
Starting with proposal by
Senate majority leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana to cut
the 500,000 U. S. ground
forces overseas in half within
three years, the Senate voted
48 to 36 in September to
require a 110,000 reduction by
Dec. 31, 1975.
Opposed by the Nixon
administration, the 110,000
cut was added to the defense
procurement bill on an
amendment by Sen. Hubert H.
Humphrey of Minnesota. It
failed to attain majority
support in the House and was
deleted in a House-Senate
conference.
State and Defense
Department officials argued
that a sizable overseas troop
cut would impact heaviest on
Europe, where the 'Jnited
States has 300,000 militur\
personnel, and jeopardize the
outcome of negotiations
between NATO and Warsaw
Pact nations for mutual force
reductions.
"We cannot negotiate from a
posture of weakess and
retreat," Deputy secretaryy of
State Kqnneth u Ai told a
Senate oommitte...
Mansfield said at session-end
that another effort to legislate
overseas troop reductions is
"very likely"Anxt year.
Enactment *f the War
Powers Bill, first Introduced in
1970 as a p~e4uct of the


a biological problem too. It has
much less resistance than say
the leopard. It is a nervous and
secretive animal."
A sea creature being
plundered to extinction is the
hawksbill turtle. Five years ago
there were 100,000 females -
now there are only 50,000 and
according to the WWF
spokesman the Japanese are
chiefly to blame because of
their insatiable demand for
tortoise shell products.

If Far East fashion still
demands animal deaths in the
ecology-conscious West the
trends are away from furs,
skins, shells.
According to Mary Quant,
international tycoon of the
fashion industry, 1974 will see
one distinct trend make-up
for men. "It will all be fairly
restrained but men are taking
more notice of their
complexion. There will be
more use of eye make-up, but
it won't be too elaborate. They
won't want to look camp or
false.
She predicts a product that
will give men a fake tan -
"everybody likes to look
tanned," and she has also
developed a transparent gell for
the face. "It's clear and it gives
the face colour but doesn't
hide blemishes.'
So far she reports a "very
big reaction overseas for male
cosmetics." As for women's
fashion it will continue in its
free-wheeling way. They will
wear what they feel happy in.

As fashion advances
film-making stagnates.
Although India and Hong Kong
still produce record numbers of
movies each year, no attempt is
being made to break away
from the success formula of
violent adventure without sex.
For the future John


'73


Vietnam War, climaxed three
years of increasing
congressional efforts to reassert
the constitutional power of
Congress to declare war.
The resolution allows the
President to commit U. S.
troops to combat without the
approval of Congress for only
60 days plus 30 days upon
written certification that more
time is needed for the
protection of withdrawing
troops. Congress could require
disengagement sooner by
adopting in both Houses a
concurrent resolution not
subject to presidential veto.
President Nixon vetoed the
bill Oct. 24 as an
unconstitutional infringement
on the power of the President
as commander- in-chief of the
armed forces.
In the only successful
override of a presidential veto
in nine tries this year, the
House voted 284 to 135 four
more than the necessary
two-thirds and the Senate 75
to 18 13 more than needed
to force the resolution into
law as of Nov. 7.
The House mustered
majorities for the first time
during the year for ending U.S.
military involvement in
Indochina, but not enough to
override a veto.
With American troops
having been withdrawn from
Vietnam under a peace
agreement effective Jan. 29,
the issue became the continued
U.S. bombing in Cambodia as
President Nixon tried to force
a cease-fire there.
The House voted 224 to 172
on May 10 to bar the use of
any money' in a 3.4-billion
dollar supplemental
appropriation bill to continue
the bombing. The Senate voted
63 to 19 to extend the ban to
money > pre iousl
appropriated, and also to both
Cambodia and Laos.
Congress also added the ban
on funding any further combat
operations by U.S. forces in or
over Vietnam. Cambodia and
Laos to a stopgap continuing
appropriation resolution, and
to the State Department,
military procurement and
foreign aid authorization bill.
Reflecting a growing
congressional coolness to the
25-year-old foreign aid
programme, the final bill
continuing economic aid fop
two years and military aid for
one passed by narrow margins,
210 to 193 in the House and
44 to 41 in the Senate.


Trevelyan, one time British
film consor and lifelong film
devotee, sees only gloom. "I
see a further reduction in
audiences and a further
reduction in cinemas to my
regret. There will be more sex
and violence because that's the
only thing that seems to pay. I
don't think there will be any
more of a backlash than there
is now."
The greatest flaw, in the
international industry, he says,
is the lack of originality in film
studios all over the world.
From Hollywood to Rome the
approach is the same: If a
movie has worked once keep
banging away at the same
theme.
"There's such a limited
amount of money available
that many companies that are
prepared to put money up are
not going to take risks on
original material or new ideas.
They will merely find a film
like "The Godfather" and copy
it.
"There is a startling lack
of originality in the seventies
nothing like that of the fifities
or sixties."

In international affairs 1973
was proclaimed "The Year of
Europe" by President Nidon
and Henry Kissinger, his chief
foreign affairs adviser. It was to
be the year when the United
States and her European allies
got to know each other better.
The President's problems with
Watergate and the Middle-East
war diverted the presidential
effort.
Now 1974 will see Europe at
the centre of world political
stage. According to an expert
in international affairs, there
are many seeds of dispute
between the Atlantic partners:
American troop levels in
Europe, the future of NATO,
the energy crisis and the rival
claims on the dwindling
supplies of oil.
"We will see not just conflict
between producer and
consumer countries but
bet ween rival consumer
countries. I think we are going
to see twelve months to five
years of very, very tricky and
delicate Atlantic negotiations.
The countries of Europe and
America will be fighting each
other. But it will be economic
animosity. The weapons will be
dollars, yens and deutschmarks


- not guns."
He sees too that the
increasing world demand for
grain could lead to violence in
the years ahead. Food riots
could be a feature of life in
countries other than India and
the developing world.

In 1974 two of the world's
eldest elder statesmen General
Franco of Spain and Marshal
Tito of Yugoslavia both
celebrate their 82nd birthdays,
each seeking the title :i
Europe's oldest leader.
Another military leader --
lacking the fame of these two
octagenarians will notch up
twenty years of uninterrupted
rule. He is General Alfredo
Stroessner, the dictator of
Paraguay, the landlocked and
impoverished South American
state featured in Graham
Greene's best selling novel
"Travels with my Aunt." His
grasp on power seems to have
set an example for the rest of
South America most of which
is now firmly under military
rule.

And for those who enjoy
anniversaries 1974 has a good
crop. It is the centenary of the
birth of Winston Churchill, W.
Somerset Maugham, poet
Robert Frost, G. K. Chesterton
and composer Gustav Hoist
(The Planets). And fifty years
ago Lenin died, aged 54.
1974 is also the centenary of
the founding in New York of
the Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to children by E. T.
Gerry, and of the first
Impressionist exhibition in
Paris which included works by
Cezanne, Degas, Sisley,
Pissarro.
100 years ago Wagner
completed his massive work
Gotterdammerung.
Also 1974 marks the fiftieth


anniversary of the discovery of
insecticide.

In medicine 1974 should see
important trends in the
prevention and treatment of a
number of crippling and lethal
diseases including heart disease,
liver disease and strokes.
Heart disease the biggest
killer in the affluent West is
thought to be linked with a
particular type of water
supply. A hard water supply
seems to protect against heart
disease, while heart disease
rates are higher in soft water
areas. Scientists are searching
for the factor in hard water
which causes this apparent
protective effect. Once they
discover what it is, it is possible
that protection may be given
to the hundreds of thousands
who live in soft water areas,
Heart surgery is constantly
developing and heart
transplants which made a
shaky comeback in 1973 will
probably start again in earnest
in 1974 in London, and
elsewhere.
The artificial liver machine
work at London's King's
College Hospital is likely to
have a worldwide impact.
Patients with acute liver failure

HOUSTON (AP) The

told the Skylab 3 astronauts
Friday that their findings could
give mankind new clues to the
origin of the solar system.
"It very probably is a new
comet (one which has never
been around the sun before),"
said Dr. Lubos Kohoutek. "If
it is a new comet, it could give
us osme information not only
about comets, but, also about
the origin of the solar system."
Kohoutek, a Hamburg
Observatory astronomer in
Germany, found the comet last
March.
"Your observations are very

the "first human beings to

Kohoutek talked to
astronauts Gerald P. Carr,
William R. Pogue and Edward
G. Gibson from Mission
Control here. He was able to
look at the spacemen on a
closed circuit television view
beamed from the orbiting
space station.
The historic conversation
took place only a few hours
after the astronauts completed
the first half of their 84-day,
30-million-mile space voyage
and as the comet was moving
away from the sun.
Kohoutek, who occasionally
consulted an interpreter, asked
the astronauts a series of
technical questions on
their observations' of the
comet, showing particular
interest in how the comet's tail
appeared.
tail "was fanning out" away
from the speeding comet.
Kohoutek asked the
astronauts to carefully observe
the comet as it streaks away
from the sun, looking for a
possible break-up of the
deep-space visitor.
Space experts say all comets
passing close to the sun face
the prospect of disintegration.

A


year for comedians' he say


'a good
By BOB THOMAS
NORTH HOLLYWOOD,
Calif. (AP) It may have been
a rotten year generally, Bob
Hope observes, but 1973 was a
good year for comedians.
Why'?
"Because people laugh more
in timrne of stress," he said.
Hope had volunteered to
make a list of the 10 best jokes
he had come across during the
year. Since he didn't go
overseas this Christmas, he had
time on his hands. But before
making his choices, Hope
reflected on the reactions of
audiences in troubled times.
"'When world events are
more dramatic and people are
on edge, they seem to want the
release of laughter," he said. "I
found that my best audiences
in war zones were the soldiers
who were nearest the front.
One of the greatest
audiences I ever had was on the
Queen Mary when I was
corning home from England in
1939. War had just been
declared in Europe, and the
ship Athenia had been sunk.
The portholes were all blacked
out, and there were people
praying in the passageways.
"One night there was to be a
ship 's concert, and the captain
wanted me to go on. I said I
couldn't do it; I didn't see how
anyone could be funny under

THE ENERGY crisis
convinces me this is going to be
a long cold winter, but
friendly. Why couldn't this
have come earlier before I
had an energy crisis of my
own?
PICTURES like "Last
Tango" and "Deep Throat"
raise a question. Five years
from now, what are they going
to put in the cement in front
of Grauman's Chinese?
THE STOCK MARKET is
so bad that three of my stocks

he married her.
A MEMBER of Parliament
got a law passed which made it
unlawful for ladies of the
evening to solicit on the streets
of London. He explained: "It
won't solve the problem, but it
WILL end impulse buying."
GASLESS Sunday has a
good aspect: Sunday is a good
day to spend in the arms of a
loved one. But then it takes gas
to get home.


"I wouldn't ask for a raise, but I am out of patience
waiting for you to recognize my work as deserving of

Monday December 31, 1973


DEAR ABBY: Do you think a mother should cover up
for Father so the children won't know what a louse he is?
I've made excuses for my husband ever since I can
remember. It's "Daddy is sick." [Daddy was hung over.]
Or, "Daddy didn't come home for supper because he had to
work late." [Daddy didn't call to say he wouldn't be home.
I don't know where he was, or what he was doing.]
I've said: "We can't afford a new car-or a vacation
this year because Daddy needs the money to put back into
his business," when the truth was, "Daddy likes to gam-
ble."
I ask myself, why should I protect Daddy? When the
kids get older they'll learn the truth anyway.
So, Dear Abby, you're supposed to have all the an-
swers. Can you answer this one? PROTECTING DADDY
DEAR PROTECTING: At an age where children be-
lieve that Daddy is the greatest, what's to be gained by
being brutally factual? I don't recommend crowning him
with a halo-neither do I support your suggestion that he
deserves a noose. Like the Santa Claus myth, children'
illusions about Daddy land Mamal vanish seeoon enough.
Don't abshove.

DEAR ABBY: How would you feel if you found your 16-
year-old daughter and her 17-year-old boy friend asleep on
her bed with the door closed? ROCKPORT, MASS.
DEAR ROCK: Nervous.

DEAR ABBY: Our next door neighbors are lovely peo-
ple. They are both in their early sixties. Well, "Mister"
loves to smoke cigars, and "Mrs." will not let him smoke
cigars in the house, so he goes out in the backyard and
smokes up a blue storm every evening after supper. Their
backyard joins ours.
We have a picnic table in our backyard, and enjoy
eating outside, but the fumes from his cigar drift to our
dining area and spoil my appetite. [We live in Iowa, and
there's not much of a breeze here.]
They are such nice neighbors, always giving us flowers
and vegetables from their garden. Should we say anything?
Or just eat indoors? I can't take that cigar smoke.
NEIGHBORS
DEAR NEIGHBORS: Try diverting the cigar pollution
with an electric fan. I am no smoke-lover, but any man
who enjoys his cigar so much he lets his wife chase him
eat of the house to smoke it needs sympathy and a little
compassion.


DEAR ABBY: I recently became very much attracted
to a gentleman who proudly admits to being 73. He's a
snappy dresser and is full of fun. I am a middle-aged
woman, but this man leaves me in the dust when it comes
to dancing, tennis, golf, and any other physical exercise
you can name.
He seems very much interested in me. My question: At
his age, is he harmless?
JOYCE
DEAR JOYCE: If you mean what I think you mean, if
he's "harmless" he won't be able to do you any good. But
whether he can do you any good without doing you any
harm will depend on YOUR condition.


DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old girl, living alone.
I date a guy who is 20 and lives at home. He called and
some relatives had come in from out of town and wanted to
stay all night, but they were short of room at his house so
he told his mother he would sleep at a friend's house. Well,
the "friend" happened to be me.
When he asked if he could sleep here, I said: "Sure,"
thinking I'd put him up on the sofa. When it became appar-
ent that he thought he wasf going to share my bed, t said:
"Nothing doing."
He said I was "undersexed" and I threw him out of the
house. He hasn't called me since.
Am I undersexed? LINDA
DEAR LINDA: No. lie's over optimistic.


DEAR ABBY: Mine is a very embarrassing problem. I
am a 20-year-old college junior at a large university. For a
while I dated what seemed to be a nice guy I'll call Bill.
He attends the same "U," and is an art major.
Bill took some harmless photographs of me on the
beach in my two-piece bathing suit last summer. After that
I sort of broke off with Bill and started seeing another
fellow.
I recently learned thru friends that Bill is painting a
nude portrait of me, using as a model the picture he took
of me in the bathing suit. Of course, he's using his imagina-
tion, but I don't like the idea. He's planning to use this
"nude" portrait of me in an art exhibit. I do have a great

body, but I don't want half the world seeing me naked, in
addition to which I don't want people to think that I am the
kind of girl who would pose for a picture like that. It could
destroy my reputation.
Is there anything I can do to stop him?
NO NUDE MODEL
DEAR NO NUDE: Since It's your "great body" Bill
wants to immortalize on canvas, ask him to please use
somebody else's face. If he refuses, ask him to please leave
the suit on. or you will see a lawyer about bringing another
kind of "suit" Into the picture.


DEAR ABBY: Why would a man check up on his wife
to be sure he knows exactly where she is every minute? Do
you think he suspects that she's playing around? CURIOUS
DEAR CURIOUS: Not necessarily. Maybe he just
wants to know where SHE is while HE'S playing around.
DEAR ABBY: I am a married woman who has been
deeply involved with a married man for four years. He has
children and so have I.
I divorced my husband thinking he would divorce his
wife and marry me. I can't honestly say that he promised
to divorce his wife, but he said so many things like: "If we
were both free, I would marry you in a minute," and: "I
have never loved anyone the way I love you." I took it to
mean he would divorce his wife and marry me. I was
wrong.
My husband never suspected a thing until I made a full
confession. Now that he knows the truth he will have noth-
ing to do with me. Was I foolish? VIRGO
DEAR VIRGO: You were. Your mistake was taking
pillow talk seriously. Actually, it's nothing more than a lot
of horsefeathers.


DEAR ABBY: After 33 years of marriage, I believe I
have discovered a cure for the common scold-sometimes
known as the nagging wife. Tho I doubt that it ever has
been tried, the best way to get a woman to shut her mouth
is to cover it with kisses. HARRY 0. LIBSON, N. Y. C.
DEAR HARRY: While year suggested cure is undoubt-
edly effective, it's extremely hazardous. It could lead to
overpopulation.


DEAR ABBY: I am a 24-year-old single girl and have
my own apartment. When I go out on a date and we wind
up the evening at a rather late hour, the fellow will start
with, "Man, am I ever tired. You're lucky you don't have
to drive clear across town to get home tonight."
I usually say something like, "I sure am," whereupon
they feel snubbed and get even less subtle and start pres-
suring me to let them sleep on my couch, etc., etc.
Abby, that kind of situation makes me feel uncomforta-
ble, but I really haven't hit upon a nice way of saying,
"Sorry, but no." Then again I wonder what harm there
would be in letting them sleep on my couch. I do feel sorry
for them because they ARE tired, and it is a long drive
across town. Can you help?
TURNING THEM OUT INTO THE COLD
DEAR TURNING: Don't let anyone get THAT tired.
Before his indicator starts pointing toward a place to sleep,
thank him for the lovely evening and turn In. Alone.



DEAR ABBY: I have been dating an attractive gentle-
man who has a very annoying habit. He keeps looking at
his watch every 15 minutes or so. What conclusions would
you draw from this annoying habit? REDH MAD
DEAR RED: I would conclude that he is eager to go
somewhere. [Possibly home.]



DEAR ABBY: Cigaret smoke makes me sick. Yet if
someone asks, "Do you mind if I smoke?" I find myself
saying, "Not at all. Go ahead." Then I could kick myself.
There must be a better way to handle this. NO GUTS
DEAR NO GUTS: There is. The next time someone
asks: "Do you mind If I smoke?" reply: "Not if you don't
mId tf I cheke!"


DEAR ABBY: Tell me if I am out of order. I have
asked our two daughters, ages 18 and 20 to kindly wear
bras when they are home. They both say they don't like to
wear them and they refuse to do so. Their 15-year-old sister
[who lives at home] has picked up the no-bra style from
the older girls and she sneaks out of the house without one
even tho I have told her time and time again that I did not
want her going to school without a bra.
This no-bra business has practically ruined our home.
All my daughters need bras, and I think they look terrible
without them. Should I insist, or drop the whole thng?
MOTHER
DEAR MOTHER: Drop the whole thag. That's what
THEY'RE d4.1g.


DEAR ABBY: I went to my minister because I have
been having marital probletas with my husband. It bed to do
with lovemaking. [He wasn't doing any.] I'm 28, and he's 2.
The minister said he really didn't know all that much
about the subject, but he suggested that I take some lessons
in belly dancing so I could entertain my husband and maybe
that would perk him up a little.
Do you know of any place in Asheville, N. C., that
teaches belly dancing? WILLING TO LEARN
DEAR WILLING: Net offhand, but leak up danee studtos
ia your Yellw Pages. and laqire. [P. 8. Ask the malabtet
where E got the M.eal


DEAR ABBY: Is there a law against what you can put
in a person's casket when you bury him?
I have a good friend who made me promise that If he
did before I did, I would get a fifth of the best bourbon


money can buy, take a real big swig, replace the cap, and
put the bottle beside him in the casket.
I told him I would gladly do this, but I need to know if
there is a law against it in Michigan.
DETROIT NEWS READER
DEAR READER: Any undertaker can tell you. And so
ean a Michigan lawyer. [I wonder what your friend has in
mind? Spirits for the spirits, maybe?]
DEAR ABBY: Maybe you can settle an argument be-
tween my husband and me. We've been married for three
years and it's the second marriage for both of us.
We have no children to tie us down. Hubby informed
me that he was going on a four-day skiing weekend with
"the boys." He also laid the law down as to what I may
and may not do while he is gone.
1. I may NOT, under any circumstances, get on a plane
and go anywhere.
2. I must be home every evening to receive his phone
calls. [He says I can't call HIM because he's not sure
exactly where this lodge is, and it's difficult to reach.]
Why should I sit home for four days twiddling my
thumbs while he is off somewhere skiing with "the boys?"
It's not as tho we were 16 when we got married. We're both
over 35 and he's had plenty of time to have fun with his
friends.
This is going to end in a showdown to see just how
obedient and well-trained he's got me. How should I handle
this! BETITY
DEAR BETTY: Tell hubby that you aren't making any
promises, but if you should decide to go somewhere you'll
be happy to call HIM if he lets you know where he can be
reached. And if he calls and you aren't home he shouldn't
think you dropped dead because there is still plenty of life
in you!



DEAR ABBY: My husband and his partner hired a very
pretty young girl to work in their office. She was there for
only 60 days when they gave her a clock-radio for her
birthday. Thirty days later they gave her $100 for Christ-
mas.
Don't you think they went overboard for the length of
time she was there? RALEIGH, NX C.
DEAR RALEIGI: Maybe she put in overtime.


DEAR ABBY: My husband is a traveling salesman, but
I never worry about him cheating on me when he's on the
road. I solved that problem years ago. Know how?
I tire him out so good when he's home, he's lucky if he
has enough energy to carry his sample cases to the car.-
SECURE IN SYRACUSE
DEAR SECURE: I hate to burst your bubble, lady, but
a man can have the finest banquet in the world, and six
hours later he's hungry again.


DEAR ABBY: What do you think of a husband who
constantly complains that he doesn't get enough loving, but
when his wife lets him know she's in the mood, he turns
her down to watch a football game.
Should I take it lying down [excuse the pun], or should
I go out and find myself another man? ON THE VERGE
DEAR VERGE: Obviously there is nothing t take-
lying down or otherwise. Next time he complains, kick bim
in the end zone!


DEAR ABBY: My husband falls into bed dead tired
without even kissing me goodnight. Then about 4 o'clock
in the morning he wakes me up and forces himself on me
without saying a word. After he has satisfied himself he
turns over and goes to sleep. All the while I am lying there
like a statue. Would you call this statutory rape?
CURIOUS IN FRISCO
DEAR CURIOUS: No. It's more like STATIONARY

six-foot-five forward Elisha McSweeney scored a total of 3-
points leading the Bahamas National Basketball squad to a 2 1
edge following three games in their return match agaimns

The .Bahamas on Saturday stopped Luxembourg Nationtil,

56-50 against T-7 1 Budelan/e and dropping the second 5-11) tol
Luxembourg's Sceinsel.
15 clutch points from Reef Basketball Club's key guard
Freddie McKay lifted the Bahamas from a 32-26 halt time defi ii
to four points behind after 13 minutes of play.
The Bahamas' big men Quant, McSweeney and Jern ci
Barney continued their consistent play giving the Bahianu
their second victory over the Luxembourg National, I I,
Bahamas' first victory came earlier this year when Luxeimbou'ii

TO THE SOUND OF TRUMPETS, cowbells,
drums and screaming fans the Blue Marlins
ended their succession of upsets with a
sensational 24-12 win over the Freeport 8 Mile
Rock Crushers to clinch the Crawfish Bowl and
the title of BAFA Champions of The Bahamas
yesterday at the QE Sports Centre.
The Marlins defence, led by Tony Treco,
Ronnie Turnquest, 'Little' Bill Albury and
Danny Albury, completely smothered the
Crushers offense throughout the first half while
the fired up Marlins offense scored 24 points in
the half.
Craig Weincek, Marlins head coach, said after
the game: "The defence did too much damage
in the first half for the Crushers to come back.
They really did a great job as a unit."
Weincek praised the Marlins leading running
back Rickey Thompson who rushed 76 yds in
18 attempts during the game.
COURAGEOUS EFFORT
Rickey dislocated his shoulder in thy first
half but he still went on to play into the second
half a truly courageous effort," said Weincek.
"I built the team up and gave them the
confidencee they needed but yesterday they
went out there and fought their own battle. I
have to say that the credit must.go to the boys
for this win," added an elated Weincek.
The Marlins took an early lead in the first
quarter when Donald Sweeting crashed over
from the I yd yard line and Godfrey Roberts
kicked for the extra point.
Minutes later Rickey Thompson gave the
Marlins a 14-0 lead as he also powered his way
over from the 1 yd line on a first down after
Crushers interference.
The Crushers tried desperately to move into
the Marlins territory during the second d quarter
but apart from one brief spell on the Marlins 20
yd line the Marlins drove the Crushers well into
their own half.
Halfway into the second quarter Godfrey
Roberts kicked a 15 yard field goal following a
fumble recovery by the Marlins to increase the
Marlins lead to 17-0.
HIGHLIGHT OF GAME
However, the highlight of the game came
minutes before the half when young Steve
Thompson intercepted a pass from Crushers
quarterback Pat Grant and galloped 60 yds for
a TD. Roberts kicked for the extra point and
the Marlins led 24-0 at half time.
In the second half the Crushers stormed back
to score early in the third quarter as the
Marlins, looking dangerously relaxed, eased off
the pressure.

HORSE

RACING

UP IN AIR

IT'S STILL up in the air as
to whether the 1974 racing
season is on or not at Hobby
Hall Race Track this
Saturday. Although the
Bahamas Horse Owners
Association were given until
Sunday to nominate their
horses for the 1974 season -
due to begin Saturday.
January S none have so far
done so.
However, it is understood a
tentative agreement with
regard to a bigger percentage
of winnings for horse owners
has been worked out with the
Racing Commission although
chairman Franklyn Wilson
declined to comment on the
terms this morning.
BHOA Secretarv. Levarity
Deveaux. said the owners
would not nominate their
horses for the '74 season
unless given a substantial raise
on the present 7/2 per cent of
winnings received by them.

1973

WHIIN C(OA(CH' Craig
Weincek and the mighty
Marlins handcuffed the Iight
Mile Rock ('rushers for the
Crawfish Bowl championship
yesterday, they clinmla\ed
perhaps the most event l tear
of sports on tihe local scene.

that dtttominated their respect i.e

Not only was 1973 a \ea.l
when tIhe IBahamas was
healthfully projected on the
international scene, but tihe
type of potential display, eld l h
various athletes points I tIo ls

It all began in inid-Februars
when Washington Redskin,.

Ingraham and Godwin Blydein.
They were both observetd
during trials and finally rin cited
to work with the Re.'dskn,
during spring treating
Although t lle were nowvi-s
in thai enviornmienrit of
football, both Ingrahaim and
Blyden made good inipwressions
And, although they did not
make the final squad, their
experience went far in not only
giving them experience for a
possible return, but also gave
those who did not get the
opportunity an insight as to
what to expect.
And yet, it was not a total
loss to football. 23-vear-old
Colorado College defensive endc
Ed Smith made tihe
breakthrough playing that
position with the lDenver

Smith, who won the 'game

Bahamas' best pitcher?


after they got past pennant
winners Pabst Pearls. They
stripped Freeport's Classic
Bucks in two straight for the
Ladies Softball Championship.
The Blazers come to think
of it, is probably the only team
that repeated a championship
this year.
One can see why they are
always in shape. They are in
reality the Bahamas Ladies
National Volleyball Team. It's
just that the Blazers play
softball in their off season.
Already back into action,
picking up where they left off
from at the break, the Ladies
National Volleyballers
continue to make their
presence felt in solid defence
of their Region IV
Championship.
They began their 1973-'74
season with victories in the
English-Speaking Caribbean
tournament.


At one time at the Plaza
Lanes, it seemed as if the ball
was going to roll the same way
again. So Madeira Leaguers
Guinness Brewers stopped the
rally taking first half
championship while dropping
defending champs Esso Tigers
in fourth spot. Mercury
Bowling Squad did the same in
the Plaza League dropping
defending champs City Market
in second.
It was the top performance
of Amoury's candidate for the
'most valuable player' award,
Rosie Saunders, that saw them
to the top again. She out
bowled all in her class and led
the league average from start to
finish.
The second half for the
three leagues begin later this
month.

Not even basketball was left
without its share of changes.


Defending pennant winners
Becks Cougars and defending
champions Kentucky Colonels
can testify to this.
Undefeated league winners
for about three seasons, both
the Cougars and the Colonels
this season took whippings
they will never forget. It was
the Classic Pros that snapped
the Colonels' streak and
Superwash Arawaks did the
same to the Cougars.
At the half way mark which
resumes January 7, neither of
these teams hold the lead.

The emergence of golden
glove light heavyweight champ
Allan Bullard on the amateur
scene is only one of many
competent boxers to make
their debut in 1973. According
to National Coach Bert Perry,
the Bahamas should be able to
hold their own in that
category.
Carrying the junior amateurs
through their paces are
heavyweight champ Boston
Blackie and middleweight
champ Rennie Pinder.

So, 1973 might really be
termed as the beginning of
something more spectacular on
the sporting scene.

Happy New Year from The
Tribune Sports Desk.
