"Watkins


MARSH HARBOUR
representative Errington
Watkins said today he is
sure his Abaco
constituents will agree
with his decision to now
support Prime Minister
Lynden Pindling's
Progressive Liberal Party
government.
The former Free National
Movement member does not
consider his new stand as a
turnabout, although he was
expelled from the FNM for
trying to split Abaco from an
independent Bahamas.
As leader of th. re, .co
Council, Mr. Watkins took his
fight to the British Parliament,
and at the same time
engendered world-wide press
support for the island's efforts
to remain a British Crown
colony.
The Council's attempts
proved unsuccessful.
Commented Mr. Watkins
today: "When I walked out of
the House of Lords I accepted
defeat. I then told my
constituents on my return that
it was all over so far as I was
concerned.
"We had fozlA, legally and
constitutionally against
Bahamian independence. Now,
sink or swim, we were all in it
together."
An outspoken member of
the House since his election in
September 1972, Mr. Watkins
announced his most recent
decision in similar fashion.
Yesterday, after attending
his brother's funeral at Long
Island, he flew in to Nassau
and called the news media to
state that he would henceforth
be giving his "full support" to
the government to assist both
the development of Abaco and
the Bahamas.
This morning Mr. Watkins
followed up his initial
announcement with a news
conference in the Opposition
room at the House of
Assembly.
Answering questions on his

Backing PLP

present sta'it'r with regard to
tlh, LP, ,,d it was possible
he would join the party, but
had not as yet given the matter
any consideration.
Nor had he made up his
mind whether he would
contest, the next general
election in 1977. "Should I
decide to join the PLP and to
run again then I would be
doing so on a PLP ticket," he
said.
He denied allegations that he
was an opportunist and was
just jumping on the
bandwagon. "I have never been
an opportunistt du-ing my
career and I have no intention
of being one now.
"All I am saying is that I am
supporting the government.
Every person who voted PLP
was not necessarily a member,"
he pointed out.
Mr. Watkins said he had
spoken to most of his
"generals" in all the
settlements in his Marsh
Harbour constituency, and he
intended to hold future
meetings. Indications were that
he would have his constituents'
support, he said.
For the present, the House
member is interested only in
"getting down to work."
"I would like to see the
roads in Abaco completed and
some development started.
This can be achieved if
everybody puts his shoulders
to the wheel and stops petty
politicking.


"Government at this stage is
endeavouring to do everything
to build the economy and all
concerned and responsible
citizens should pitch in and
help."
Asked 'o be more specific,
Mr. Watkins said only that it
was evident from the
government's actions since
independence that the trend
was towards revitalizing the
economy.
He had not been given any
indication he said, that the
government proposed to finish
the controversial Abaco
highway, but felt sure it would
do what was necessary to help
development in the area.
"The development potential
in Abaco is very good and
under the circumstances I feel
the government will see that
the roads are fixed.
Asked for his views of the
Abaco Independence
Movement (AIM), he said the
movement carried no weight at
all except with a few die-hard
members.
He could see no future for
AIM and said Abaconians felt
the same way. "I predict that
ie the very near future it wii!
disappear."
Mr. Watkins said he has not
officially communicated to the
Prime Minister his intention to
support the government. "I
made a press release and I
imagine he has seen it like
everybody else."
He intends however to
communicate his position to
the House when it meets again.
on March 20.
In his press statement
yesterday Mr. Watkins said he
proposed supporting the
government because, as an
Independent he was unable to
make a "definite" contribution
to building Ab:'co and the
Bahamas.
The Opposition, he felt, had
no sense of direction and was
ineffective. He therefore could
not support them and he had
no intention of remaining a
"lone voice in the wilderness."


THE BAHAMAS Christian
Council today put its
opposition to casino gambling
on record for the second time
in ten years and has officially
advised the Prime Minister of
the fact.
In a somewhat belated
statement, the Council has
declared its opposition to the
continued existence of casino
gambling in the Bahamas as
well as to government
ownership and operation of the
casinos.
The four-paragraph release
was signed by the Rev. Dr. R.
E. Cooper, president of the
Council.
It says: "The Bahamas
Christian Council's stand with
regard to casinos in 1965
remains unchanged in 1974.
"In this year of our Lord,
1974, the Bahamas has casinos
both in New Providence and in
Grand Bahama in spite of the
written objections of this
Council.
"This Council is now
declaring in this statement that
it is opposed to government

owning and operating casinos.
"Further, the Bahamas
Christian Council, in keeping
with its stand in 1965, goes on
record as being opposed to the
continued existence of casino
gambling in the Bahamas."
The issue of casino
gambling, after lying dormant
for ten years, flared up last
November when the
government announced it
would assume the ownership
and management of the casinos
when the last licence expired at
the end of 1977.
The decision, made
apparently without con-
sultation, resulted in the
Cabinet resignation of former
Development Minister Carlton
Francis.
A prominent Baptist, Mr.
Francis said that as a matter of
principle he could not support
the perpetuation of casino
gambling in the Bahamas.
His stand was supported by
two other PLP members Mr.
George Mackey. representative
for St. Michael's, and Mr Phdip
Bethel, representative for
Governor's Harbour.
Since then the Baptist
hierarchy has stated
unequivocally that it is against
gambling in all forms, and
although a supporter of the
government was prepared to
take ar stand against it in any
future election should the


administration persist in its
percent policy.
In a somewhat milder
statement last month, the
Roman Catholic Bishop of
Nassau stated that the Catholic
church is opposed to the
expansion of casino gambling
in the Bahamas. but did not
view it as an evil in itself.

Bishop Michael Eldon of the
Anglican Church has cautioned
however against getting rid of
casino gambling until an
alternative revenue earner can
be found.
Expressing his personal
opinion, the Bishop said that
gambling was not evil so long
as it was done for amusement
rather than out of greed.

HOBBY HORSE
LICENCE
CLARENCE TOWN
representative Michael
Lightbourr, proposes asking the
government to consider not
renewing the existing licence
on Hobby Horse race track.
Mr. Lightbourn, a House
Independent, served notice
today that he will ask for
House support of a resolution
that would seek to ban
horseracing throughout the
Bahamas when the present
lease with the operators of
Hobby Horse Hall expires.


LONDON Britain faced political
deadlock today after a dramatic
election crumbled Prime Minister
Heath's power and saw Harold
Wilson's Laborites inching .toward a
hairline margin in parliament.
Through the long and agonized
hours of waiting for a clearcut
outcome Heath, first alone and then
with colleagues, pondered the most
fateful decision of his career: Should
he fight or quit?
Constitutionally, he can carry on
until defeated in Parliament or he
could make the short journey to


The Rev

Richard

Barrett

is dead


THE REV. Richard Samuel
Barrett, 79, (pictured) a former
Senator in the United
Bahamian Party government,
died at the Princess Margaret
Hospital at 8:30 this morning
after a month's illness.
Funeral services will be
conducted at 4 p.m. Monday at
St. John's Baptist Church, of
which Mr. Barrett was a deacon
for many years. Interment will
be made in the church
cemetery. The Rev. 0. A. Pratt
will conduct the service.
Mr. Barret is survived by his
wife, the former Hilda Grace
Donaldson of Nassau, and four
children: Timothy, Brock-
hoist, Juliette, and De'anne.
De'anne.
Mr. Barrett. who was born at
St. Anne's Parish, Jamaica on
July 28, 1894, came to Nassau
at the age of 18. Three years
later he joined the Criminal
Investigation Department of
the Royal Bahamas Police
Force.
He founded the Ebony
Musical Association about 40
years ago and his wife was the
group's pianist from the age of
12 years until it was disbanded
about eight years ago.
After leaving the police
force he started the Monte
Carlo Club, a dinner club, on
the site that later became the
JL1ngc ItIU U ncai tim. viu.jita6.
Beach Hotel.
Mr. Barrett gave up the club
to become a deacon in St'
John's Baptist Cathedral of
which he was later acting
General Superintendent and
general secretary. lie was also
secretary of the Bahamas
Baptist Missionary and
Educational Convention. He
was a deacon in the church
until 1963 when he was
ordained a Baptist Minister.


Buckingham Palace to tell Queen
Elizabeth he was resigning.
The nation's voters had left neither
the ruling Conservatives nor the
challenging Laborites with a majority
in the 635-member House of
Commons. This meant Heath or
Wilson could lead a minority
government as in Canada that
would require the support of smaller
groups in parliament.
It would have to be supported
either in a formal coalition pact or
informal arrangements to cooperate in
defined situations.


CAB DRIVERS


EXPECT REPLY


ON MONDAY

By Mike Lothian
THE ISLAND'S taxi-cab drivers, hard hit by increases in every
cost area of their business since their own rates last went up more
than four years ago, expect Government to reply Monday to
proposals to raise the cost of various cab services an average of


more than 50 percent.
This was confirmed today
by Taxi-Cab Co-operative
Union president Richard Moss,
who yesterday morning had to
try to calm drivers at the
airport angered by the 12-cent
rise in gasoline prices,
Spurred by demands from
the drivers, Mr. Moss told The
Tribune, he yesterday went to
see Transport Minister George
Smith, but was told by deputy
permanent secretary Conrad
Knowles that Mr. Smith was
not in. However, Mr. Knowles,
Mr. Moss reported, told the
union leader he could assure
his members that the Minister
would reply to the union's
proposals by Monday.
Mr. Moss said the union's
proposals for new rates, first
submitted in September last
year, took into account the
union's anticipation that
before long 100 octane fuel
would rise to about 90 cents.
(The union was correct: 100
octane from yesterday costs 90
cents a gallon).
Current taxi-rates are 60
cents for the first quarter mile
and ten cents each additional
mile for one or two passengers.
The union is asking for $1
for the first one-fifth of a mile,
and ten cents for each
additional fifth-mile.
The present rates call for a


With the results of 10 electoral
districts still to be declared late this
afternoon Labour had 300,
Conservative 295, Liberals 11 and
Others 19.
Computers operated by the British
Press Association predicted Labour
would wind up as the strongest single
party with 301 seats, Conservatives
297, Liberals 14 and Others 23.
Such an outcome would be a
nightmare. It would seem to rule out
chances of decisive action at a time
when the nation seems to need it
most.

Wilson consulted members
of his Shadow Cabinet at
Labour Party headquarters
within a few hundred yards
of 10 Downing Street
although he did tell
newsmen: "It is imperative a
government must be quickly
formed to deal with the
present economic problems.
A minority government may
not be the happiest outcome
but there might be no
alternative."
The usually talkative
Thorpe also was being wary
when he said there is no
question "so far" of trading-
terms with other parties for
Liberal support. "Quite
clearly the Queen will send
for someone to form a new
administration," he said. The
electors have shown they
want greater cooperation
among all parties.

Conservative Party has not
received the mandate from
the public he asked for, his
party has won the popular
vote by nearly one percent
over Labour.

Minister's request to grant
him audience at 7.45 p.m. so
that he can report on the
current political situation."

The Liberals have won
nearly six million votes but it
has only mustered a few more
than the seven seats it had in
the previous Parliament.
As a result, Mr. Thorpe has
railed against what he has
described as the "iniquitous
electoral system."

had an effect on the West

Tories lost 11 seats to Labour

his parliamentary majority.

history of the London Stock

Rolle speaks out on political influence


THE EXERTION OF
political influence on members
of the police force occurred
"almost overwhelmingly"
during the previous United
Bahamian Party adminis-
tration, Home Affairs Minister
Dr.rrel Rolle charged in the
Housa Wednesday.
Mr. Rolle, who now has
responsibility for the police,
was commenting on a motion
by Mr. Errington Watkins
(Ind.-Marsh Harbour) to have
his committee report on the
administration and existing
conditions in the force adopted
by the House
Although members appeared
to support the committee's
findings, the report was
referred back to the committee
when Finance Minister Arthur
Hanna pointed out that it dealt
with financial matters which
could not be considered
without his recommendation.
"The House is being asked
to approve a matter involving
the expense of money. My


suggestion is that it be referred
back to the committee to put
it in the correct order." he
said.
Congratulating Mr. Watkins
on the objective manner with
which the report had been
handled, Mr. Rolle commented
on that portion dealing with
attempts by junior and senior
officers to enlist the assistance
of politicians.
LEGACY
He claimed that this was a
legacy of the "previous
regime," and that one of the
most serious incursions into
the independence of the force
was when a former government
member went to the United
Kingdom and brought back a
police Commissioner "at an
inflated salary "
(Mr. Rolle was referring to
the engagement by Mr Roy
Solomon of former police
commissioner Nigel Morris)
It was this type of legacy,
Mr. Rolle said, which led to the
committee's second complaint


about unqualified personnel in
the force. These individuals
had been appointed without
regard to their qualifications or
the welfare of the force, and
unfortunately, "we are saddled
with them," he declared.
The Minister wanted to
clarify and establish "once and
for all" that the government
intended to abide by the
Constitution and maintain the
independence of the police
force as a whole.
"Government, by involving
the Prime Minister, the Leader
cf the Opposition and the
Governor General in the
appointment of the Police
Commissioner has sought the
impartiality of the force." he
declared.
It was the government's
position that the day to day
operation of the force should
fall. within the domain of the
Police Commissioner
exclusively, free of mny
political influence from the
government side.


Furthermore, he added, it
was "absolutely useless and
pointless" for House members
to appeal to the Minister
responsible or the
Commissioner to waive the
requirements for admission to
the force, because this was an
area where political influence
could not be brought to bear.
Dealing then with some of
the other recommendations of
the committee's report, Mr.
Rolle said it was government's
position that the present
location of police headquarters
and fire headquarters was not
necessarily conducive to the
efficiency of the force
Both of these headquarters
should be established in a
non-congested area so that the
present quarters could be
converted into a centralised
downtown police headquarters
- providing at the same time
for a striking force of police
In this respect govern-
ment had already started a
programme of decentralization,


witn the building of a new
police station on Blue Hill and
a fire depot in Fox 'Hill. .
It was the intention to
establish police and fire depots
in other districts. Then it
would only be necessary to
establish the nucleus.
Regarding Arthur's House,
now used as a police
dormitory, Mr. Rolle pointed
out that while it was unsuitable
as housing for the men, the
building itself was safe.
"The age is such that the
plumbing and other necessary
alterations needed to
modernize it would not be

Sn d e c i d e d it was

any party to win the 318 seats
needed for an absolute
majority in the new 635-seat
House of Commons.
A BBC computer projection
predicted a final result of 301
Labour seats, 296 Conser-
vatives, 14 Liberals and 24
others.
Such a result could give
either Heath's Conservatives or
Wilson's Labourites a chance to
form the next government.
As Prime Minister, Heath has
the option of trying to stay on
with a minority Conservative
government until he is defeated
m the House of Commons and
new elections are forced.
Or he could try to govern
with Liberal support
understood, or in a formal
coalition with the Liberals.
Alternatively, Heath could
resign and let Wilson try and
form a minority or coalition
government.


Heath, Wilson, and Liberal
party leader Jeremy Thorpe
were all believed to have held
strategy sessions by telephone
with senior colleagues in their
own parties.
There was no immediate
announcement of consultations
between the parties.
Heath, who called the
election in a gamble for an
increased mandate, went to
bed at 0300 gmt with his
Conservatives badly trailing
Wilson's Labour Party.
Heath awoke at 0830, and
consulted Cabinet colleagues
by telephone. Government
sources said Heath would
probably remain at his official
residence, No. 10 Downing
Street, until after lunch
without commenting on
election returns. The sources
said Heath thought it improper
to take any government action
before the election results
become clearer.
Wilson returned from
Liverpool and told newsmen:
"In the situation the country is
facing, it is of paramount
importance that a government
be quickly formed to get the
country back to full-time
work."
Queen Elizabeth returned
from Australia to receive the
leader of the party which gets
most seats in the Commons
and ask him to form the next
government.
No one was likely to go to
the Palace before inid-
afternoon. Wilson scheduled a
meeting with his opposition
shadow Cabinet at 1430 gmt to
discuss strategy.
Wilson has ruled out a

Odds on a new election

LADBROKE'S one of Britain's biggest betting chains
that has a fortune riding on the country's cliffhanger
parliamentary election, opened a new book today on the
next election.
It started taking bets on who would win it while results
were still pouring in on the current election.
Political pundits predicted that if neither party won an
overall parliamentary majority, Britons may have to vote
again.
Ladbroke's kicked off betting on a possible second ballot

on Labour to win six.

'Only serious crimes' grounds for


WASHIN(;GTON President
Nixon's lawyer said that only
criminal offences of a very
serious nature can be grounds
for impeachment of a U.S.
president.
In a 61-page analysis of the
constitutional standards for
impeachnmenrt, James D. St.
Clair and five legal associates
wrote
"The use of a predetermined
criminal standard for the
impeachment of a president is
... supported by history, logic,
legal precedent and a sound
and sensible public policy
which demands stability in our
form of government.'
The analysis clashes with a
study by the staff of the House
Judiciary Committee which
holds that the president can be
impeached for noncriminal
actions.

The St. C('lair document sais

KISSINGER

PICKS UP

PEACE

LINE

PLANS

TEL AVIV U.S. Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger today
picked up Israeli dis-
engagement proposals for
the Golan Heights patterned
after the successful
Egyptian-Israeli troop
separation in the Sinai, officials
reported.
This would mean creation of
a second United Nations buffer
force to patrol between Israeli
and Syrian soldiers.
Both sides would have to
thin out their front line troops
and fire power the limit on
the Egyptian front was 30
tanks apiece and would
negotiate for possession of
strategic posts on Biblical Mt.
Hermon, the officials said.
Kissinger. who arrived in the
Jewish state from Cairo, plans
to take the Israeli proposals to
Damascus tonight and present
them personally to President
Hafez Assad of Syria.

Syria has demanded return
of all Israeli-occupied Syrian
land the Golan Heights
captured in 1967 as well as the
380 square miles of additional
land seized in October.

The Israelis have said they
will return the land taken in
October, but not the whole
Golan Heights or the 15 Jewish
frontier settlements on land
captured in 1967.

Kissinger's mediation m.fr
are designed to soften the
conflict with an interim troop
separation accord that would
reduce the danger of fighting
during negotiations on a wider
settlement, probably at
Geneva.

By I II \N I) P D, I' I
HAS CIVILIZATION robbed us of some of our most
important primary senses?
I have been thinking on this question since I have had a dog as
a companion in my apartment in Coral Gables.
Ile is a pure-bred Miniature Pinscheir. only about eleven inches
tall.
I don't know why they call this breed a M-1., Pin" because I
believe it is a cross between the Italian Greyhound the small
Dachshund and the Manchester. in him are combined some of the
qualities of this mixed breeding. !le has tle speed of a Greyhound
it's really ama/inr how fast these tiny dogs can run: the
intelligence of tire Dachshiund' and some of the physical
characteristics of the \Manchester It is possible that they have
been associated with the PinscIheI because of their great courage.
They are tiny but they have the heart ofIa lion.
My dog is the son of gicat show champions in the U.S. le must
have the look of the Manchester because lie attracts great
attention among dog lovers heric who,s as soon as they see him. say
lie is a Manchester.
* * * * ;
I am 5,r-.ri.i]ii,. amazed by this animal's extraordinary senses.
lie is really, my wie's tdog and thie\ love each other with a
passion. lie had an aci.i'det hio i in which he broke his hip
and Dr. Soilty sent hii to a dtog hospital in Miami to have the
limb reset. It wa.si b'i.ik that tquired two operations and a
I' i : e 1ot- ice' e wlih t t, spent witlh tie when he
:h leave the II ospi, ti
My wife decided to lease himk siiii Ime because site felt that he
provided tile wllh compttaionshp whlien I ami alone in my
apartment at night
I'* *- : *
Baron is the name we ave him because- from infancy he had
the bearing and !m11ii-1r1s of what ione would expect of an
aristocrat.
In the hbegitniing lie msade friends with one of the Cuban maids
who works on miy thoor. Sihe refused to back off when he
threatened her on her "., i entry iIito my room. She talked
coddling Spanish to him aiiid tinally he accepted her as a friend.
This woman comes and goes unnoticed.
Alithoigli other residents of this hotel pass up and down the
corridor at all hours of the day and night Baron is undisturbed.
But as soon as any of the other maids, who come to the room
twice a day, approach he rushes to the door barking and
protesting.
The hallway is caipeted. I'hese women don't make a single
sound. Now, when he does this. I don't wain for them to rap ... I
go to the door and open it. Sometimes tihe are not outside ...
they are some distance down the corridor coining to my room.
There is no sound and so hoiw does this little dog know that
anyone is walking in the corridor .. lhow does he know the
difference between tlie maid that lie likes and the others ... how
does he know when they come dolwn the corridor that they are
not stopping at another room'
Oh no, there is ino set time. They ima\ come at any time before
noon or after 7 o'clock in the evening.
My wife makes frequent trips to Coral (Gables to see mne. She
has no particular day or time for arriving. She just comes. As soon
as she steps out of the elevator, about 50 feet down the corridor.
Baron goes to the door sniffing and whining.
How does he know that his great love is .r iii rt'
Is it by some sound that is inaudible o tie. seen, or thought
transmission'?
** * * * *
In his primitive state man must have had highly developed
senses to have survived the centuries lie spent in the jungle among
tfie flesh eating dinosaurs and other ian eating beasts ... even the
tiger and lion of today.
We are all credited with having five senses ... sight, sound, taste,
touch, and smell. Some people mostly women are gifted with
an uncanny intuitive perception. This is called a sixth sense. But
there must have been many other senses that we have lost
through centuries otf what is called civilization.
1 * * * *
Men who live near to nature still have some of these
extraordinary senses, especially the ability to communicate with
regions beyond lthe scope of oiiniary mien.
This condition is often found among holy men in the East. I
have stood and watched one of these men: Ile sat in a spot with
his legs crossed under him for hours without twitching a muscle
or blinking an eye. He just sat there like a statue in marble.
While in this state his spirit appears to have left his body and
travelled to regions beyond ordinary human experience.
Some of these ien have gone into the forest and
communicated with t(he wild, so that tigers would come in their
tent and lay at their feet.
These men possess a spiritual force that lies dormant in all of
us but we have lost it because we have become creatures of a
harsh materialistic society. WVe call it riime n cii

The Australian Aborigine is classed as thIe lowest form of
human being. Hlie is sometimes described as thIe "Missing Link"
between man and monkey.
The Australian government has tried to bring them out of the
bush. Just a few of them with mixed blood are now beginning to
-win a place in society. For example, an Aborigine of mixed blood
is now a champion tennis player. She is out in the world. But
most of those who come out of the bush still huddle together in a
small village on the outskirts of Sydney and refuse to be
assimilated into their "civilized" surroundings.
SA newspaper editor I met during a tour of Australia with a
CPU delegation in 1W55 told ime some remarkable stories about
the Aborigines that still live in lhe bush
Hle said thIa if s oi are .sppriachiinmg a bush Millage with an
SAboriginee hie cani tell \ou what i being said amrd what is being
done in the village hie li s i l mlil iwo miles wawa .
At night the\ sil ,.imrnd fire ror a, prow .wtw No one is saying


anything. No one is moving. But somehow they are
communicating with each other.
If a medicine man tells a healthy Aboriginee that he is going to
Jie at a certain hour on a certain da'e ... on the hour and on the
Jay he will just lie down and die.
These men are the trackers in the bush where it is common for
a sheep farmer to have a million acres of land. Without the
services of an Aboriginee the white farmer would never be able to
locate the flock when the time comes for them to be driven in for
shearing or for marketing.

But even in civilization men who are blind possess remarkable
senses.
One of Nassau's successful real estate operators is Bill Sands.
He was born blind but he is capable of doing business and
handling money. He can tell the difference in the value of coins
by the sense of touch. But what I find it difficult to understand is
how he can tell the difference between a dollar bill and bills of
other denominations. This much is certain ... no one can fool him
with money.

Some years ago I had an opportunity to study a blind boy. His
name was John. He was known as Blind John. He made a living
by selling The Tribune.
John was a Catholic. He attended Sacred Heart School. It was
interesting to hear him tell stories about the pranks he played on
the Sisters ... of skating and even riding a bicycle. You would
really think he was just another normal boy.
John walked out boldly. You would see him striding down the
sidewalk whistling and swinging his arms. Suddenly he would
stop, then move off more cautiously. He sensed something in his
path. He approached it ... touched it ... moved around it ... and
was off again.
One day an American newspaper man, who had heard about
John, came to see him at The Tribune. He examined his eyes.
There were no eyes ... only sunken sockets where eyes should be.
He didn't believe the stories he had heard. This was impossible,
he said. lie asked me if I could arrange a test for him. lIe would
give John ten shillings to walk through town during the busy hour
of the morning.
I had a dozen copies of The Tribune wrapped and addressed to
friends in the town. I put them in order and told John where they
were to be delivered.
Hlis first drop was at Sir George Roberts in the City Lumber
Yard at the dangerous crossing at Victoria Avenue and Bay Street
... the most westerly stop was at the Priory, at West and West Hill
Streets. His last stop was at the Royal Victoria Hotel on Shirley
Street.
John set out on the job completely oblivious to the fact that
he was being followed by an American newspaper man with a
camera.
John returned safely to the office after making all the
deliveries. The newspaper man was nowhere in sight. He turned
up about half an hour later. Hle had lost John in the downtown
traffic ... he just could not keep up with him as he crossed from
side to side of Bay Street in the heavy traffic hour of the day.
This was before stop sign lights were introduced to the island.

John did some amusing things. On Sunday mornings he would
stand outside the Greek Orthodox Church at the foot of West
Street and hold his hand out for gifts from the Greeks. As soon as
all the Greeks had gone in to worship he would walk to mass at
Xavier's Roman Catholic Cathedral on top of the hill and drop
the tributes from the Greeks in the Roman collection plate!

The author of "The Last Days of Pompeii" made his heroine a
blind girl. But perhaps the most remarkable blind woman in real
life was Helen Keller who died a couple of years ago. Made blind,
deaf and dumb through illness as an infant, this woman became
one of the great intellectuals of this century.
In one of her essays she wrote about blindness and compared it
with the inner sight of human wisdom. Her studies led her to
believe that the real blind people of the world were those with
eyes who, in pursuit of worldly things, had lost touch with the
real spiritual values of life.
I have often taken a few lines from this essay and used it as a
"Thought For Today".
Today I am going to print the whole essay because I feel
that it is something that should be read and remembered by
thoughtful people who are looking for the real things in life.
Here it is:
"Step by step my investigation of blindness led me into the
industrial world. And what a world it is!
I must face unflinchingly a world of facts a world -fn misery
and degradation, of blindness, crookedness and sin, a world
struggling against the elements, against the unknown, against
itself.
How reconcile this world of fact with the bright world of my
imaginings?
My darkness had been filled with the light of intelligence, and.
behold the outer day-lit world was stumbling and groping in
social blindness. At first I was most unhappy, but deeper study
restored my confidence.
By learning the sufferings and burdens of men, 1 became aware
as never before of the life-power that has survived the forces of
darkness the power which, though never completely victorious,
is continuously conquering.
The very fact that we are still here carrying on the contest
against the hosts of annihilation proves that on the whole the
battle hlas gone for humanity.
The world's great heart has proved equal to the prodigious
undertaking which God set it. Rebuffed, but always persevering;
self-reproached, but ever regaining faith: undaunted, tenacious,
the heart of man labours towards immeasurably distant goals.
Discouraged not by difficulties without, or the anguish of ages
within, the heart listens to a secret voice that whispers: "Be not
dismayed; in the future lies the Promised Land."

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: Everything in life is relative. Let
us consider wealth for a moment.


Some years ago I attended a fashionable wedding in Christ
Church Cathedral when the guests were drawn from the titled and
wealthy section of the tourist and Bahamian community. I went
with the late Hon. Sidney Eldon, father of the Rt. Rev. Bishop
Michael Eldon.
A hymn was announced. The organ pealed out the tune but
not a voice was raised in song. There wasn't a song in the heart of
this powerful and wealthy audience.
"Let's sing," Mr. Eldon whispered to me.
"Shut your mouth man," I replied, "You want to frighten
these people?"
That evening I was driving past Zion Baptist Church whose
congregation are regarded as poor people. These supposedly poor
people were raising the roof of the building with joyous praises to
God.
Which of this group had the better part ... which had real
wealth?
What do you think?
Personally I would rather be considered poor in Zion with joy
in my heart than to be among the rich and powerful with leaden
hearts.

This is the great mistake Mr. Pindling has made in his approach
to building a nation.
In one of his early speeches some \ears ago he declared that he
would make some black millionaires. It would appear that he has
already done this ... but what has this done for the nation"

ex-St. Andrews student, do not
need to rack their brains for
ideas on the uses and
functions of these posters.
Their customers provide the
creative means of using tlem..
One customer had the idea
of decorating one of her
children's bedrooms within
blown-up posters.
Then, of course, there are all
the conventional uses that this
process can be used. Wedding
snapshots can be turned into
giant portraits. The Poster
Printers will frame, mount or
matt the portraits as desired.
And, who hasn't got a sole
and precious snapshot of a late
mother, father, grandmother or
grandfather and no negative.
The Poster Printers can
reproduce this to ensure a
lasting visual reminder of this
late beloved relative.
In fact, they will give you as
many posters as you want. The
second, third etc...only costs
$2.50 or $3.50 for permanised.
For $2.50 The Poster
Printers will make you a little
round pocket mirror with your
portrait on the back.
The only limitations on the
functions of these posters are
your imagination.
Anything that is flat and no
larger than 8 by 10 inches can
be made into a poster. So long
as the poster is not used
outside it can go anywhere.
Artists use this process for
enlarging their drawings.
Supermarkets have expressed


interest for their interior decor
and advertising of goods. Dress
shops, rather than sticking
magazine clippings on their
walls, could either have these
same clippings enlarged to
almost life-size or alternatively
could have a photo of their
own human model dress in the
outfits they're retailing in
poster size.
And what could be quicker
for the production of a poster
advertising a fair, bazaar.
theatre or concert production
than a bl own-up poster?
Family portraits need no
longer be limited to those in
small frames cluttering tup
every .r Jil it I..' surface aind
table in your living room. They
can be framed and hung right
on the walls for greater visual
impact and reduction of clutter
and dusting.
The idea has caught on
strong with the tourists many
of whom visit India Hlouse in
their souvenir hunting. India
Ilouse, by the way, is manag-
ed by Mrs. David Sumner.
Everyone on vacation wants
a permanent, visual reminder
of tihe good time they had. Not
everyone can take photographs
and what better reminder of a
fun time than a fun poster-size
portrait in a straw hat? An
unusual, ftiun and inexpensive
souvenir for the folks back
home that rolled up is easily
transportable and won't add a
whit to the baggage allowance.


Housewife fined


A WULFF ROAD housewife
and a cashier who were caught
with goods hidden on them
after a visit to the Quality
Supermarket, Wulff and Village
Roads, were both convicted in
the magistrate's court yesterday.
Mary McKenzie, 29. and
Yvonne Powell, 19, both
pleaded guilty to stealing $3.83


up to 18 x 24 inches. However,
one word of warning if your
picture is in colour there must
be contrast between the
background and the figure
otherwise the results might be
a little disappointing.
If you don't have a favourite
snapshot or photograph the
Poster Printers will take an
instant polaroid one of you on
the spot.
The process from
snapshot-size to poster-size
takes about half an hour. First
the snapshot is copied, a
negative is developed, this is
dried and then run through a
machine to produce an instant
poster.
All this costs you is $5.95.
However. Mr. David Sumner of
Nassau, who has brought this
exciting new venture into
town, warns that unless the
poster is then put through a
permanising process which will
cost you an extra dollar, the
poster may begin to fade or
discolour after a year or
eighteen months.
The permanising process
consists of the poster being
dipped in three chemicals, then
water and finally retouched for
a finished professional job.
The uses and functions of
blow-up posters are
innumerable. If the object is a
fun thing the permanising
process would only be
redundant.
What are the sort of fun
things that customers use these
posters for?
Well. for example, one lady
customer brought in a
snapshot of her husband in
tennis togs over which she had
typed "Happy Birthday,
Bobby Riggs"! The poster,
with the accompanying blown
up typed message (and typing
takes to this process hke a
duck of water), resulted in a
in o s t unus Iu a I an i d
nidividuali/ed Birthday "card".
In actual fact Mr. Sumner
and his pretty little
manageress. Sharon Cash, an


priest of the diocese of Nassau
who has served in the Bahamas
for 38 years, is being recalled
for service in Nassau. Father
Marcian has served at Mary
Star of the Sea church for the
last year and a half. Under his
direction, the Young Christian
Students (YCS) group of 65
young people has been formed.
Hie also sponsored the Cub and
Brownie packs in the parish.

She realizes hubby's


tattoo was kid stuff
DEAR ABBY: I have some advice for Rosemary whose
husband had "Helen" tattooed on his chest:
Don't worry. For the last three years I've been resting
my head on my husband's chest every night, and I see
"Patsy" staring me in the face. [My name is Marie.]
It was nothing serious-just a kid romance. He was 16,
and she was 14 at the time. He says he wishes he could
remove that tattoo now but it's too expensive and too
painful, so I just keep reminding myself that I had three
kids by a previous marriage when he married me so he
must have loved me a lot.
He has been a wonderful husband to me, and a terrific
father to my kids, so I'm not going to let a little thing like
"Patsy" on his chest bother me. Sign me ...
LUCKIER THAN PATSY
DEAR LUCKIER: You're luckier than you thought. I'm
informed that Dr. Gary Manchester of San Diego came up
with a new technique for removing unwanted tattoos. It's
called "salabrasion," and it's supposedly the cheapest and
easiest method, and leaves no scars. Briefly, it's done by
rubbing table salt into the tattoo. [Don't try to do it your-
self-consult a doctor!] It's approved by the California
Medical Association. Now if your husband wants to salt
Patsy away permanently, he can rub salt in the wound.
DEAR ABBY: I am having a terrible time with my
landlady. You see, I get this room for only $30 a month,
and it is big and airy and near my work, and I can't afford
to move.
The landlady likes me too much. I'm 28, and she is old
enough to be my mother. The other morning I woke up and
she was standing over me watching me sleep! [She has her
own key.]
If I clean up the yard she hugs and kisses me so much
I can hardly get away from her. [I think she drinks a
little.] When I pay the rent she always asks me to stay and
visit a while, then she gets kissy with me.
I don't want to insult her or she'll kick me out, so what
do you suggest? NERVOUS
DEAR NERVOUS: Do your best to keep her at arm's
length. And get a chain for your door to keep her out while
you are in.


DEAR ABBY: For reasons too numerous to mention I
never learned how to drive a car and I don't care to. I
have always provided my own transportation and have
never imposed upon my friends to drive me places.
My problem is having to defend myself against people
who first ask me how come I never learned how to drive,
and then give me a long lecture on how "foolish" I am for
not learning.
I feel it's really none of their business as long as I
don't ask them to chauffeur me around. DOESN'T DRIVE
DEAR DOESN'T: Tell them-exactly the way you told
me.

New price clock


GRAND BAHAMIANS will
soon be albe to know how
much and how fast the prices
of food, housing, clothing and
footwear, transportation,
health and personal care,
recreation and reading, and
other goods and services are
rising every month, it was
announced today by the
Department of Statistics.
The forthcoming Retail
Price Index for Grand Bahama,
is designed to measure the
percentage change from month
to month in the average prices
paid by lower and middle
income wage-earners in Grand
Bahama for a fixed basket of
goods and services which they
consume regularly.
Work on the Index started in
the summer of 1973, with the
formation of a committee


consisting of representatives of
the Freeport Chamber of
Commerce, the Port Authority,
the trade unions, the business
community and the
Government, to discuss and
plan details of the Index: and
the taking of a household
budgetary survey to determine
the importance or "weight"
which should be given to
various items consumed by the
average family.
The Index is expected to be
introduced in the second
quarter of 1974, and will be
published monthly. The
reliability of such an Index
depends largely on the
co-operatron of all concerned
in supplying prompt and
regular price information to
officers of the Department of
Statistics when requested.

This Committee has some very ambitious goals to achieve with regard to the upcoming Family Island Regatta and
they very much hope to raise sufficient funds from public support to offset the costs of this prominent sailing event.
Mr. Durward Knowles will be writing personal letters to many members of the business community requesting
donations; however, the committee feels that everyone should be part of this Regatta and any donation however small
would be much appreciated. Please send your contributions to Mr. Durward Knowles, Commodore, Regatta
Committee, P. O. Box N 8156 Nassau.
The Exuma people themselves who live in Nassau have formed a fund raising committee to work separately from the
Family Islands Regatta Conmmittee and they will raise funds by arranging various functions. Their next function will
be a moonlight catarmraran cruise starting at 7.00 p.m. on Saturday, 23rd March, music, dancing and good Bahamian
food will be provided, please contact Mrs. Beth Stewart at 77738 for reservations.
Mr. Durward Knowles will work as Co-Chairman on this committee to co-ordinate the work of the two committees
and bring in outside support where necessary. It would be appreciated if all Exumians living in Nassau could contact
Mrs. Stewart who spearheads the Exuma Fund Raising Committee programme, to offer their support and help in this
communal effort.

However, it is something of
a jolt to hear North overcall
with 2 No Trumps. East also
appears to be thrown out of his
stride, for he frowns, slumps
back in his seat, opens his
mouth as though to say
something, changes his mind,
consults the ceiling, and
eventually says "Three Clubs".
You pass, of course,
wondering what partner can be
up to, and wondering also
whether last's 3 Clubs is the
Stayman convention or a
rescue into the Club suit.
Whichever it is, you are not
unduly depressed, because you
have four cards in both majors.

no surprise when West opens
the bidding with I No Trump,
showing 16 to 18 points.

produce a trick. Poor innocent
you: the worst is yet to come!
Over East's 3 Clubs, West
now bids 3 Hearts. Obviously
he is taking it for Stayman, no
matter what East intended. But
now North comes to life again,
with no less a bid than 3 No
Trumps. This time, East takes
even longer to produce a bid,
but when he does, it adds
another surprise to this already
surprising auction. East bids 4
Spades.
Again you pass, feeling a bit
like Alice in Wonderland, but
glad at any rate that it is the
opponents who are going to
play the contract rather than
your headstrong partner. But
fasten your seat-belt, for
further turbulence is coming.
West now passes, and it is
now up to the wayward North
to stop his nonsense and let the
others get on with it. But
North is still full of his own
strange steam, and without
blinking an eye he says "4 No
Trumps".
This is apparently too much
for East, who gives the
impression that he has
restrained himself too long
already. "Double", says East,
sounding as though he means
it. It is now up to you. You
have half a mind to pass, and
put the whole mess back in
North's lap, but first you give
it some thought. What does his
first overcall of 2 No Trumps
mean? You have no idea, but
you feel you ought to try and
work it out. To start with, it
can scarcely be a big balanced
hand of about 21 points or so,
for he surely would have said
double instead, relying on you
to interpret that as a double
for penalties, as you certainly
would.
So he has some shape, rather
than lots of points. You know,
of course, that he is fond of
the Unusual No Trump, but
you have always played this in
the situation where the bid is
made once the opponents have
announced major-suit holdings.
and it has been recognized as a-
demand for partner's best
minor suit. Could North
conceivably have such a hand
now? East bid both majors
himself opposite a strong No
Trump. Surely that clinches it
North must have a freak
2-suited minor hand, and is
dying to know which of the
two suits to play it in. Well,
there's nothing for it but to tell
him.
A desperate thought comes
into your head as you are
about to utter the fateful
words "5 Clubs". What if your
eccentric partner should
construe this as some form of
high-level Stayman! But you
feel a little unsteady as it is,
and you put the thought aside

Eat and Grow Younger


Nerves need good diet to



fight jitters and jangles


By LELORD KORDEL
Number Twenty of a Series

Jittery nerves in a woman do not please a man, re-
gardless of what youthful charms she may possess. Al-
though a young girl, or a woman in her 20s or 30s, may
get by without much poise and with nervous gestures
that irritate the onlooker, the older she grows the more
these undesirable nervous habits detract from the charm


of a woman who wishes to
past her 40th birthday.
Healthy nerves are fully as
necessary in a man. Yet I
choose to address this chapter
directly to you women, although
what I say to you holds equally
good for the nervous system in
past-40 male bodies.
A planned diet can give you
the healthy nerves so vital to
the charm and poise of a lovely
woman. Notice, please, that I
said a planned diet, and not a
"starvation" diet. The nervous
system that is starved of pro-
tein and fat has no other choice
except to become "jittery."
An indifferent diet, or a star-
vation reducing diet that neg-
lects protein and natural fats, is
a diet designed to give you the
Miwe.omRT gift of jangled

BLOOD BUILDERS
The four foods in order, that
produce for you the most hemo-
globin are liver, kidney, apri-
cots and egg yolk.
Meat contains lots of iron, yet
not all of it is available for use
in the body. For instance, your
body can absorb no more than
50 percent of the iron contain-
ed in muscle meats such as lean
beef and lamb; 70 percent of
the iron in liver (in spite of the
fact that liver produces more
hemoglobin than any o t h e r
known food); and 80 percent
from heart.

S We also have learned that
when vitamin A is scarce enough
in the diet to cause nutritional
eye disorders, an accompanying
symptom is a nervousness and

with personal contentment and '
efficiency.
NEED RICH BLOOD
E Without blood that is kept
young-that is, rich with red
coloring matter along with
the rest of your physical and
mental organism, your efforts
)5 to remain a radiantly healthy,
young-looking person are doom-
ed to failure almost at the out-
set For the blood is your body's
S"carrier systernm In order to
dispatch renewed youthfulness
to all other parts of your body,
you first must make certain that
your .carrier system is in A-1
I working order.
It's only when the blood is
youthfully red and healthy that
it can impart to your body -
the outer you all the desir-
able appearances if a prolonged
youth; fresh complexion, natur-
I ally red lips and naturally pink
fingernails.
Iron is widely advertised as
the mineral responsible for the
redness of your blood, and this
h is true Yet iron is not the only
Sminral needed to combat ane-
mia. Copper, too, is necessary
before the iron can go to work.
Iodine is still another mineral
con cl rned with keeping blood
up t,., its normal richness. When
too little iodine is obtained
through your meals, the bone
marrow (the red blood cell fac-
tory) cannot produce enough red
Scorpuscles, even though both
iron and copper are plentiful in
the list of minerals essential for
S"feeding" the blood.
Although men can become
Sanemic the same as women for
lack of these food elements in
Their diets, women are far more
susceptible to anemia than men.
The reason for this is largely
attributable to their periodic
loss of blood without restoring
the valuable supplies of body
iron lost each month.
Again t e problem of digestion
enters the picture, especially for
I the person past 40. Since iron
E dissolves only in acid (the
S same as protein and calcium
I can only be digested by acid)
-it is important to make sure
' that the hydrochloric acid in
your stomach juices is strongI

to win the third game to stay
in the match, began in
workman-like fashion waiting
for good percentage
opportunities before trying
for winners.
His extra concentration
paid off and repeatedly
caught the number I going
the wrong way by playing a
number of reverse angle shots
and boasts.
In this fashion he stayed in
the lead whilst the score
climbed to 5-4 in his favour.
Montgomery pulled back
and took a one point lead at
7-6 when, not surprisingly
after the battering it recieved.
the ball broke.
The introduction of the
new ball,. which took the
customer five minutes to
warm tip before being fit to
play, brought Montgomery
just the pause lie needed to
break Lancaster's strong
charge. Experienced player
that he is, Montgomery seized
this welcome opportunity
and gave his opponent only
one more chance to serve in
taking the third and final
game 9-6.
