The
world
tonight
Reporters ind photographers
wailed in vain al Los Angeles
international airport early
today for the scheduled
arrival from London of
Marjorie Wallace, dethroned as
Miss World after a
controversial three-month
reign.
Miss Wallace reportedly
disembarked without
entering the terminal and was
driven away in a car parked
on the tarmac.
The newsmen had hoped
o interview Miss Wallace on
her dismissal as Miss World in
London because the
organizers of the contest felt
he had failed to maintain "a
first class public image."
During her brief reign. Miss
Wallace, reportedly the
steady girlfriend of
millionaire racing driver Peter
Revson, was featured in
newspaper stories that
recounted her relationships
with a number of British
personalities. including
former soccer star George
eat and singer Tom Jones.

ISR \l I is and Syrians
clashed with tanks, cannons
and missiles today on the tense
Golan Heights front amid
Israeli reports that Damascus is
gearing up for a new round of
fighting
A Syrian military com-
munique said the hostihtie-
began with a 90-minute tank
and artillery duel in the central
sector of the front.
That clash was followed by a
25-minute exchange in the
same area, the Syrians
reported.
The Syrians fired a number
of antitank missiles at an Israeli
patrol in the Tel Marai central
sector and Israeli forces
returned the fire, the Tel Aviv
military command said
The Damascus communique
claimed two Israeli artillery
batteries, an "engineering unit"
probably a crawler tractor
and Israeli military' vehicles
were hit. But neither side
reported casualites.
Algiers radio and the
semiofficial Algierian news-
paper El Moujahid said
meanwhile that Arab
oil-producing countries will
meet March 13 in Tripoli,

The Israeli newspaper Maarft
said that Washington has
warned Tel Aviv of a possible
Syrian intention to renew
hostilities along the Golan
front.
The Syrian army is in a
"high state of readiness" and
armed with many ground-
to-ground missiles, the paper
added.
The first Israeli reports of a
Syrian buildup were treated
with some scepticism in Israel
Some observers felt the
government used the scare as a
device to settle a bothersome
government crisis. But reports
from the front Thursday
indicated Israeli troops on the
line were taking the fears
seriously.
Israel's new minister of
information. Simon Peres,
was quoted telling the paper
that the "same informants that
warned us on the eve of the
Yom Kippur war" had tipped
Israel off to the new S
move.
It was not clear if Peres
meant that Washington warned
Israel on both these occasions.
"After the lesson we
learned from the Yom Kippur
war we take everything very
seriously now and all question
marks are put aside." Peres was
quoted as saying. (AP)

Meeting jelled after Vesco cash delivery, court told
NEW YORK A U.S. government
witness testified yesterday that hours
after financier Robert Vesco made a
$200,000 cash contribution to
President Nixon's re-election
campaign, then-Attorney General John
Mitchell set up a "very productive"
meeting between Vesco's lawyer and
the head of the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC).
Vesco side Harry Sears testified in
United States district court that the
meeting which Vesco had been trying
to arrange for months jelled quickly
once the cash was delivered to former
Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans,
who was then Nixon's re-election
finance chairman.
The jury of eight men and four
women and the packed courtroom
hung on Sears' every word as he
testified for a third day in the criminal
conspiracy trial of former Cabinet
members Mitchell and Stans.
In return for Vesco's contribution,
the government claims. Mitchell and
Stans sought to impede a fraud
investigation of Vesco's far-flung
corporate empire.
Despite the meeting with then-SEC
chairman William Casey and a number
of other high-level conclaves, three
months after the contribution Vesco
was discouraged over his legal battles
with the federal investigators and
ready to appeal to Stans for aid. Sears
said.
When he argued against such a
course of action, Sears testified, Vesco
exploded: "My God. I gave all that
money!"
Sears and Vesco were indicted in
the case along with Mitchell and Stans.
Vesco fled the country and Sears was
given immunity to testify for the
government.
Oil states

pro Arab
pledge
LONDON Key Arab
oil-producing states may soon
warn Prime Minister Harold
Wilson that Britain may be
listed as "an unfriendly
country" unless his new
Labour government demon-
strates a pro-Arab attitude
Ranking Labour politicians
and Mideastern diplomats,
who disclosed this Thursday,
said an informal advance
message was sent Wilson at
the weekend before the
Labour leader was installed as
Prime Minister.
And it took the form of a
letter from an ex-ministerial
colleague who wrote it in
consultation with a leading
Mideastern Ambassador here.
Since the Mideast war last
fall Arab oil-producers have
classified foreign countries as
friendly, neutral or
unfriendly according to
their stance in the
Arab-Israeli conflict for
purposes of regulating their
oil supplies.
Friendly countreis have
been able to count on stable
deliveries. Those branded
unfriendly have had their
supplies either limited or
cutoff as in the case of
Holland and the United
States.
The Wilson government has
yet to define in precise detail
its broad approach to the
problems of the Mideast.

'Egypt wants oil
embargo lifted'
CAIRO Egypt has asked
Arab oil countries meeting here
Sunday to lift their
five-month-old embargo against
the United States, an Oil
Ministry official said.
Informed sources in Kuwait
said that rich Persian Gulf oil
sheikdom also is ready to drop
the embargo.
The ministers are gathering
lure with the embargo at the
top of their agenda at
I evDt's invitation, officials
said. Their meeting originally
was scheduled for Tripoli
I ibya.
The Egyptian Oil Ministry
official said it was switched to
Cairo because of lack of hotel
space in Tripoli But there was
speculation in some quarters
that the change grew from
Libyan resistance to lifting the
embargo Iraq and the
Palestinian guerilla organiz-
ations also are known to
oppose resumption of
U.S.-bound shipments.
President Anwar Sadat
proposed lifting the embargo in
return for Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger's help in
concluding an agreement to
disengage Egyptian and Israeli
troops along the Suez Canal
front, and for Kissinger's
effort] to arrange a similar
disengagement of Syrian and
Israeli troops on the Golan
Heights
Resumption of shipments to
the United States would help
ease the gasoline shortage that
has resulted in long lines in
front of many American
service stations Authorities say
the embargo is costing the
United States about 10 per
cent of its total daily needs.
President Nixon expressed
optimism at a White House
conference Wednesday night
that U.S. diplomacy in the
Middle Fast inevitably will
influence the Arabs to lift their
embargo.
But he declined to predict
outright that the Arabs will
decide Sunday to resume oil
shipments to the United States,
observing that such a
prediction from him might
"lead them to do otherwise."
there were reports that
Saudi Arabia and several
Persian Gulf states in addition
to Kuwait endorsed the
Egyptian call for an end to the
embargo.
But Saudi Arabia, the largest
Arab oil producer, has been in
the forefront of the campaign
to wield what the Arabs call
their "oil weapon" against

Seven stages of life
H\ I riENNE DUPIH II
In King Lear Shakespeare left us this thought: When we are
horn ween thai mm are come to this peat stage offools.
And in his As You Like It the great bard traces the stages of
growth and development and the final decay of a man from the
cradle of the grave.
All the world's a stage.
And all the men and women merely actors..
They have their entrances and their exits.
A nd each man in his rime plays many parts.
Hts acts being seven ttt
The story opens with a "mewling and puking infant" ... then
the 'whining school boy" ... then the lover, "sighing like a
furnace" ... then a soldier, "full of Strange oaths" ... then the
justice, "in fair round belly lull of wise saws and modern
instances" and "with eyes severe" ... the sixth stage shifts into
"the lean and slipper'd pantaloon", ... and. finally, second
childhood, "sans teeth. sans ej es, sans laste, sans everything ",
It has been truly said "once a man. twice a child".
These ire inescapable stages of life which humble and great
dike, must experience in their steady passage from the cradle to
the grave.
s\s wife and I are now both well advanced in age. We are
fortunate that we are still vigorous in mind and body. But
whenevei I see a man or woman on the street struggling with all
the will and physical power left to them to take one step alter
another... and with bowed head and dimmed eyes... I remind my
wife that one day perhaps soon we will reach that stage of
physical deca)
We both wish to be spared tins last painful experience but we
accept the fact that this is a decision that is beyond our power.
And when we look Into the laces of our grandchildren, their
eyes sparkling with the confidence and the vigour of youth. I
think how kind I v pressed in nature .. is for the easy
i slip from one level of life to
the change.
Sometimes I sil md alone and try to recapture the
memories of im youth, [he memories are full and cleat but the
sense of feeling is gone, nevei to he recaptured. And that is why I
like to see young prop: ring themselves ... with
responsibility o' ause it happens only once.
"The damp of autumn." wrote W. S. Landor. "sink into the
leaves and prepare them for the necessity of their fall; and thus
j insensibly are we. as years close around us. detached from our
5 tenacity of life b) the gentle pressure led sorrow."
Vnd again Shakespeare
VtUSt endure.
Their going hence, even .is their ,, lining hither;
Ripeness is all.
I don't suppose many readers of this column are familiar with
the writing of Joseph Addison (1672-1719).
And. pleas'd th' Almighty S orders tii perform.
Rides in the whirl-wind, and directs the storm.
Addison wrote two essays on life that I read over a half
century ago. They stick in my memory. I will record them both
briefly because they are worth remembering even though I will
deal with only one in ilus discussion.
In his first picture of life he sees the human family groaning
under the burdens and miseries of daily experience.
Addison tells how God in His pity sent an angel to earth with a
great mirror He then had all mankind pass in review before this
mirror which emphasized each man's secret fears and burdens.
The angel then instructed all those who had seen their fears
and faults magnified to cast them aside. They all did ... and it
made a great pile
The angel then instructed each person to take from the pile the
burden he would prelci to Ins own ... and each man went away
with a new burden of Ins own choosing.
A week later the angel returned to earth with his mirroi and
went through the same procedure as on Ins fust visit.
He then told the people to once again cast their burdens aside
... and then to take from the pile again the one thing they felt
suited them most.
They all did ...and when the) went happily awl) 'hoy were all
carrying their Original burden ... having learned thai God gives to
each man only the burden he is mosl suited to bear.
Addison's other story was I he Vision ol Mir/a". In this story
the highway of life is pictured as a great bridge, narrow at its
approaches, wide in the middle and tapered off to a single
pathway on the farther shore.
I his bridge links the beginning ot life with the final scene. A
roaring stream of Watei boils up tindei the bridge and sweeps into
eternity ... the bridge is spotted with ti ip doors which open on to
the rushing waters below
ITw approach to the bridge is crowded with young men and
women eager to get their feet planted on the highway of life that
leads hopefully to the farthei shore where a single star shines on a
land ol fulfilment.
As the crowd of men and women step on the bridge trap doors
open and many disappear quick]) from sight as they fall into the
surging waters below and are swept away to oblivion.
The line thins in the broad middle of the bridge where there
are fewer trap doots but three quarters of the way across the line
becomes tlunnei still. And it tapers off sharply as men continue
to fall through the trap doors, even as happened to Moses
within sight of the Promised I
Finally a single wear) Iravellei reaches the path that leads to
the high goal on the far shore
Then he. in his turn, is finally overtaken by lather Time ... and
'ie dies hopeful!) leaving behind footprints in the sands of time
that might help I" light the was foi I later weary traveller who
seeks the high coal ol life
In this connection Longfellow wrote
/ n es ol great men all remmd us
We can make our toes sublime
And. departing, leave behind us
Footprints in the tends \l time.
Footprints, that perhaps another
Sating O'er life's solemn mam
i rtorn and shipwreck'd brother,
Seeing shall lake heart again
Some gteat men art more fortunate than men in their final
passing. It has been well said that "nature is prodigal of her gifts".
Winston Churchill was the greatest man of this century and one
of the greats of all time but he had a tragic passing. In the end he
decayed into a mere vegetable, illustrating Shakespeare's most
tragic line ... "sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything".
In his book "Winston Churchill, the struggle for survival
1940-65", Churchill's doctor Lord Moran, traced his meteoric rise
to power and fame. ... and his final decay. The decay started with
a slight stroke to the brain which Churchill himself noticed. The
debility spread until, in the end. he was reduced almost to a mere
vegetable.
His friends and admirers were heartbroken. They wished he
could have died on the field of battle with a smoking pistol in his
hand or in one of his most cherished memories when, as a young
man. he wielded a sabre in the last great cavalry charge in history.
Here was a man of stout heart and great mental capacity ... but
in the end his brain went into decay and he became no more than
a shuffling mountain of flesh.
My friend Lord Beaverbrook had a more fortunate passing. He
went as I would like to go.
The last time 1 saw him was in his flat in London. He was
confined to a wheel chair and his face was ashen. He didn't
complain but my wife and I could see that he was in great pain.
We knew when we left him that day that this would be our last
meeting on earth.
His last words to me were a lament ... almost a reprimand ...
when he chided me once again for not seizing power when the
chance came to me after my success in breaking down racial
discrimination in the colony in 1956, at a time when the coloured
people wanted a leader who would take revenge on their former
masters.
I could never make him understand that this was not my role
in life. I neither desired power nor the task of meeting the
demands of an embittered people.
The Beaver lived until the following summer. He retained his
faculties up to the end. He was dictating instructions almost with
his last breath. A letter to me must have been one of his last
efforts.
It was sent to me in Nassau. It finally reached me in Turkey
where 1 was attending an IPI conference.
It was a brief note signed Max in which he said how
fortunate I was to be travelling around the world. He was now an
old man, confined to a wheel chair, attended by a devoted wife.
That letter came to me in the evening mail. When I went to the
book shop in the hotel the following morning newspaper
headlines stared at me from the rack: "Beaverbrook Is Dead". He
was 85.
Later I heard from friends in London the glorious manner of
his exit from this scene.
On the Beaver's 85th birthday Lord Thomson of Fleet gave a
dinner in his honour at the Dorchester Hotel. As the time
approached the Beaver was critically ill. He was a dying man and
it was feared he would be unable to attend the dinner.
A few days before the function he had a machine brought to
his bedside. He would record a speech that could be played back
from his vacant seat at the table. But he was too ill to record a
speech.
He told the nurses to take the dictaphone away ... he said he
had decided to attend the dinner and make the speech there.
On the morning of the day for the dinner he had himself
moved to a room at the Dorchester He sat in a wheel chair in a
room adjoining the dining room.
When the time for the dinner arrived he called to his son. Max,
to take his arm. Summoning all the will power at his command he
rose slowly from the chair and, resting on his son's arm, he
walked the whole length of the large dining room to the place of
honour at the table.
He had his dinner and then rose to make one of the most
brilliant speeches of his career. It was to be his last public-
appearance and he knew it.
In his speech he emphasized that he had served an
apprenticeship here on earth during which he hoped he had
learned lessons that would serve him well in the life beyond the
grave.
At the end of the dinner he took his son's ami and made a
grand exit from the banqueting hall.
He then went back home where the curtain quickly came down
on the life of a remarkable man.
God, what a glorious way for a man to take his exit from this
scene. How I envy him!
Now ... why did I write all this about the lives of individuals'
When I started this article I intended to write about the decay
ot nations as seen in events now taking place in England. But my
mind took its own course and I simply recorded thoughts as they
flowed across my memory.
The same principle that applies to individuals is also true of
families and of nations.
In the case of a family a man or a woman sets a pattern
for his children to follow.
The great misfortune for the children of wealthy or famous
parents is that unless their parents take time to impress on
them that all they inherit is a good name but that each human
being in his or her own time must walk the bridge alone ...
they never get a firm grip on life
In the Vision of Mirza only individuals not families
crossed to the far shore. But a good name gives a young person
entering on life an advantageous start. That's all.
It is impossible to bequeath fame to anyone. More than one
great man has been destroyed because he fell himself capable of
"creating greatness '.Mr. Pindling please note
This caused the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. He thought
that every Bonaparte was a Napoleon. And so he made members
of his family rulers of lands he conquered. But there was only one
Napoleon in the Bonaparte family His brothers and sisters were
people of mediocre calibre ... and so his greal achievements
crumbled about his cars
Some of the greatest Marshals of France during the Napoleonic
era were men who had risen from the ranks.
A Marshal Ney had caught my father's imagination. As a child I
often heard him speak of the dashing courage of this great French
military leader.
But of all the dynasties established by Napoleon only one has
survived.
He made one of his Marshals, who had been a Sergeant in the
French army, the king of Sweden. I've forgotten his family name
hut I do remember that he married a charming French girl.
daughter of a silk merchant. The present King of Sweden is
descended from this line started by a man who had been a
Sergeant in the French army but who had the capacity for great
achievement.
Tomorrow I will do the article about the decay of Britain
which we sec daily unfolding before our eyes.
In one of my articles recently I referred to the earthquake that
swallowed up most of Port Royal, capital of Jamaica, that had
the reputation of being the wickedest city in this hemisphere.
I think I spoke of it as having taken place early in the last
century. For purposes of accuracy ... the date was 1692.
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Flower in the crannied wall.
I pluck you out of the crannies.
I hold you here, root and all. in my hand.
Little flower but if I could understand.
What you are. root and all, and all in all.
I should know what God and man is. ROBERT LOUIS
STEVENSON.

Taxi union silent on new cab rates and airport bus
Sa


BUT


NOTHING


HAS


CHANGED,


WARNS


MOSS


THE TAXI CAB UNION was not
prepared to comment today on the new
cab rates announced by government or its
decision to institute a public bus service
between Nassau International Airport and
the central downtown area.
"I will say this much however,'
commented union president Richard
Moss. "Nothing has changed since last
April when we made an official statement
on the question of bus service at the
airport."
At that time the Taxi Cab Union made
it patently clear that it would not tolerate
such a service. Drivers have stated
publicly they will blockade the airport
approaches if any attempt was made to
introduce buses.


Following the rise in fuel prices, the
taxi union last September submitted
proposals to government for an average
50 per cent increase in the cost of the
various cab services.
Today's official statement froin
Transport Minister George A. Smith ga e
approval to a 30 per cent increase over
the present fare to become effective
Monday. March 11.
At the same time the Minister said that
"in giving consideration to the new rates.
the government has decided that it will
institute or cause to be instituted at the
earliest opportunity, a public bus service
between the Nassau International Airport
and the central downtown area."

Simeon Bowe hits back at generator complain

"unjustly accused." Works
Minister Simeon Bowe today
hit back at teacher union
complaints about lack of
service of teacher generators
in the out islands
And he extended a
"sincere promise" to union
president Leonard Archer to
enforce General Orders 104
which permits government to
withhold teachers' salaries to
pay "surcharge" fees for
damage or loss to government
property through fault or
neglect

Wednesday slammed the
Ministry of Works for failing
to mainta1 1 in teachers'
generators in the Out Islands.
saying it takes anywhere up
to six months. and in many
cases longer, for a Ministry of
Works unit to investigate the
coriplaint.


Charged the Minister:
"This Ministry is doing and is
being made to do more than
it should to keep (260)
generators operating. This job
could very easily be done if
there would be some
co-operation from teachers in
the family islands."
And he complained: "I
would like to point out at
this time. without calling
names (but will do so if
necessary), some of the things
that are done to cause some
of the trouble."
Among his list of
complaints were: teachers
allowing generators to run
dry of oil resulting in the
bearing, shaft and piston
being burned out: teachers
putting in oil in some cases
paint oil that they have
been instructed not to use;
some teachers, taking down
the machines and lacking the
knowledge to put them back


MR SIMEON BOWE
together again, and some
parts thereby getting lost; and
some teachers, he claimed,
using a piece of wood to hold
down the cut-off switch
thereby running down the
generator without oil and
causing malfunction.
"The union should try and
get these headteachers to
learn how to carry out simple
instructions, so that they may
get students to do the same,"
said Mr. Bowe.
And he charged that a
headteacher was expected to
be responsible and to show


some interest in Governmenet
property.
He also outlined sonie of
his department's difficulties.
"This Ministry is doing and
is being made to do more
than it should, to keep
generators operating. This job
could very easily be done if
there would be some
cooperation from teachers in
the islands.
"With the large number of
machines, 260, we only have
two people working on the
major repairs of them. One

At a news conference this

were to raise 5100,000 by June

school 'will house about 150
students with an ultimate goal

agriculture, having regard to
the development of Andros as
a prime agricultural area." Mr.
Rolle said.
"I believe we will have more
success in that field with the
youngsters from the family
islands because they have not
been exposed to the same
influences that militate against
the Nassau youngster, the
Minister observed.
iHe said young people in
Nassau were more reluctant to
accept farming as a worthwhile
way of earning a living.
Mr. Rolle was hopeful that
given the necessary funds, the
school would he able to open
its doors before December
1975.
The site has not yet been
decided, but the facility will be
operated by the Ministry of
Education and will offer
science and arts subjects, in
addition to agricultural
training.
Mr. Rolle emphasized that
the school was the project of
the people of Andros, assisted
by other Bahamians sympa-
Ihetic to the scheme.


"For many years now,. and
even today, the majority of our
fellow countrynlen have
believed that the government
must provide everything that
government has an endless
supply of money anl that.
therefore government nii.' lhe
the provider of everything at
any time in every place.
"Indeed," he added, "This
attitude has become so
prevalent that it has to a large
extent dictated even the
attitudes of members of
Parliament seeking to get
projects started in their
constituenciess"
He was happy however that
a recent trend had developed
whereby members of
Parliament are becoming
involved in constituency
projects that could be acheived
with the cooperation of the
constituents and the
representative.
"It is our view that
although this traditional
approach is a natural process of
dependence on government
nevertheless we feel that it
tends to militate against


successful community pro lects
which can be achieved through
the cooperation and drivc of
the Inember of PIarliamentl and
his constituents."
Mr. Rolle also felt that this
approach would inspire a sense
of achievement and encourage
a sense of reliance on the part
of every member of the
conimmunity.
"It is also with this spirit
and drive that we can make a
better contribution in building
a better Andros and better
Bahamas for all of us," he said.
It was in this spirit that he
and his constituents fornmu-
lated and instituted a self-help
scheme for the constituency.
The first part of the scheme
had already been achieved with
the introduction of a school
bus with capacity for 24
children.
The bus was commissioned
last Sunday in Fresh Creek and
has been completely financed
by funds raised at events held
in the constituency and with
the help of the Minister and
other Androsians living in

Yesterday Mr. Smith met with Mr.
Moss and a union delegation to inform
them of the new rates and government's
intention to permit operation of a public
bus service between the airport and
downtown Nassau.
The bus service proposal was first
mentioned in the months prior to
independence when then Transport
Minister Darrell Rolle met with members
of the Taxi Union and outlined some of
the transportation problems facing the
country.
He also made certain proposals, one of
them allegedly being a bus service. Cab
unionists, already angry over the manner
in which the Emerald Green Bus Company
is being administered by
certain union officials, are
threatening to take action
similar to that in 1958 when
they clashed with tour
company operators.
At that time the taxi men
successfully closed down the
airport. totally wiping out
anticipated profits from the
year's winter season.
MORE DIFFICULT
T he taxi men claim that
with tour cars. livery cars,
Emerald Green, hacks and
private individuals hiring out
their private cars, it is
sister of becoming more and more
three difficult to earn a living.
mpblic's Complicating the picture is
the rising cost of fuel, the
r cllglne increased price of a cab
\ S500 licence and high cost ot
r engine repairs. The union had
aImily sought an increase from 60

University of the West Indies as
onei of the most reactionary
institutions to be devised in the
post war years, Prime Minister
Flrrol Barrow charged here it
swas turningg out a lot of
initsits "
He was speaking in
Parliament on a resolution
which provides for a reduction
of the time to be spent abroad
by officers enjoying leave
passages.
The resolution, which was
passed, reduces the various
periods granted by two weeks.
Voting that the University
staff had been demanding
pre-requisities yearly and
turning out misfits, Barrow
said this form of academia was
fata! to clear thinking. The
trouble is that we in the
Caribbean are suffering from
the residual effects of
colonialism." Barrow added.
A government back-bencher,
Evely Greaves suggested that if
leave passages were to be
granted the recipients should be
offered the equivalent in
government bonds or those
who did go should be on
attachment to learn "what's
going in their countries.

Reporters and photographers
Waited in vain at Los Angeles
international airport early
today for the scheduled
arrival from London of
SMarjorie Wallace, dethroned as
Miss World after a
controversial three-month
reign.
Miss Wallace reportedly
disembarked without
entering the terminal and was
driven away in a car parked
on the tarmac.
The newsmen had hoped
to interview Miss Wallace on
her dismissal as Miss World in
London because the
organizers of the contest felt
she had failed to maintain "a
first-class public image."
During her brief reign, Miss
Wallace, reportedly the
steady girlfriend of
millionaire racing driver Peter
Revaon, was featured in
newspaper stories that
recounted her relationships
with a number of British
personalities, including
former soccer star George
Best and singer Tom Jones.

CLASH


ISRAELIS and Syrians
clashed with tanks, cannons
and missiles today on the tense
Golan Heights front amid
Israeli reports that Damascus is
gearing up for a new round of
fighting.
A Syrian military com-
munique said the hostilities
began with a 90-minute tank
and artillery duel in the central
sector of the front
That clash was followed by a
25-minute exchange in the
same area, the Syrians
reported.
rhe Syrians fired a number
of antitank missiles at an Israeli
patrol in the Tel Marai central
sector and Israeli forces
returned the fire. the Tel Aviv
military command said.
The Damascus communique
claimed two Israeli artillery
batteries, an "engineering unit"
probably a crawler tractor
and Israeli military vehicles
were hit But neither side
reported casualites.

oil embargo against the United

An official of the Egyptian
Oil Ministry in Cairo said
Thursday night, however, that
the ministers have yet to reach
agreement on when and where


to hold their meeting.
The Israeli newspaper Maariv
said that Washington has
warned Tel Aviv of a possible
Syrian intention to renew
hostilities along the Golan
front.
The Syrian army is in a
"high state of readiness" and
armed with many ground-
to-ground missiles, the paper
added.
The first Israeli reports of a
Syrian buildup were treated
with some scepticism in Israel.
Some observers felt the
government used the scare as a
device to settle a bothersome
government crisis. But reports
from the front Thursday
indicated Israeli troops on the
line were taking the fears
seriously.
Israel's new minister of
information, Simon Peres.
was quoted telling the paper
that the "same informants that
warned us on the eve of the
Yom Kippur war" had tipped
Israel off to the new Syrian
move.
It was not clear if Peres
meant that Washington warned
Israel on both these occasions.
"After the lesson we
learned from the Yom Kippur
war we take everything very
seriously now and all question
marks are put aside." Peres was
quoted as saying. (AP)

NEW YORK A U.S. government

after financier Robert Vesco made a
$200,000 cash contribution to
President Nixon's re-election

Mitchell set up a "very productive"
meeting between Vesco's lawyer and

Exchange Commission (SEC).
Vesco aide Harry Sears testified in

- Arab


pledge

LONDON Key Arab
oil-producing states may soon
warn Prime Minister Harold
Wilson that Britain may be
listed as "an unfriendly
country" unless his new
Labour government demon-
strates a pro-Arab attitude.
Ranking Labour politicians
and Mideastern diplomats,
who disclosed this Thursday,
said an informal advance
message was sent Wilson at
the weekend before the
Labour leader was installed as
Prime Minister.
And it took the form of a
letter from an ex-ministerial
colleague who wrote it in
consultation with a leading
Mideastern Ambassador here.
Since the Mideast war last
fall Arab oil-producers have
classified foreign countries as
friendly, neutral or
unfriendly according to
their stance in the
Arab-Israeli conflict for
purposes of regulating their
oil supplies.
Friendly countreis have
been able to count on stable
deliveries. Those branded
unfriendly have had their
supplies either limited or
cutoff as in the case of
Holland and the United
States.
The Wilson government has
yet to define in precise detail
its broad approach to the
problems of the Mideast.
In general, it seems
the Wilson administration will
pursue a p 'i'y of
even-handedness


meeting which Vesco had been trying
to arrange for months jelled quickly
once the cash was delivered to former
Commerce Secretary Maurice Stans,
who was then Nixon's re-election
finance chairman.
The jury of eight men and four
women and the packed courtroom
hung on Sears' every word as he
testified for a third day in the criminal
conspiracy trial of former Cabinet
members Mitchell and Stans.

'Egypt wants oil



embargo lifted'


CAIRO Egypt has asked
Arab oil countries meeting here
Sunday to lift their
five-month-old embargo against
the United States, an Oil
Ministry official said.
Informed sources in Kuwait
said that rich Persian Gulf oil
sheikdom also is ready to drop
the embargo.
The ministers are gathering
here with the embargo at the
top of their agenda at
evotDt's invitation, officials
said. Their meeting originally
was scheduled for Tripoli
Libya.
The Egyptian Oil Ministry
official said it was switched to
Cairo because of lack of hotel
space in Tripoli. But there was
speculation in some quarters
that the change grew from
Libyan resistance to lifting the
embargo. Iraq and the
Palestinian guerilla organiz-
ations also are known to
oppose resumption of
U.S.-bound shipments.
President Anwar Sadat
proposed lifting the embargo in
return for Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger's help in


concluding an agreement to
disengage Egyptian and Israeli
troops along the Suez Canal
front, and for Kissinger's
efforts to arrange a similar
disengagement of Syrian and
Israeli troops on the Golan
Heights.
Resumption of shipments to
the United States would help
ease the gasoline shortage that
has resulted in long lines in
front of many American
service stations. Authorities say
the embargo is costing the
United States about 10 per
cent of its total daily needs.
President Nixon expressed
optimism at a White House
conference Wednesday night
that U.S. diplomacy in the
Middle East inevitably will
influence the Arabs to lift their
embargo.
But he declined to predict
outright that the Arabs will
decide Sunday to resume oil
shipments to the United States,
observing that such a
prediction from him might
"lead them to do otherwise."
There were reports that

placed inside.
Members of the service searched not only

Saudi Arabia and several
Persian Gulf states in addition
to Kuwait endorsed the
Egyptian call for an end to the
embargo.
But Saudi Arabia, the largest
Arab oil producer, has been in
the forefront of the campaign
to wield what the Arabs call
their "oil weapon" against
Israel. The devoutly Moslem
Saudi ruler, King Faisal, has in
past statements insisted that
Israel must pull out of all Arab
land captured in October and
in the 1967 war, particularly
Arab Jerusalem.
The embargo was imposed
after the October Middle East
war as a way to pressure
Washington away from support
of Israel.
The Arab oil countries also
cut off shipments to the
Netherlands, regarded along
with the United States as
particularly pro-Israeli.
They reduced over-all
production by about 15 per
cent in addition to the two
embargoes, spreading an oil
pinch across most of the world.

Seven stages of life



By I Ill Nt \ )DUPUCHt
In King .Lear Shakespeare left us this thought: When we are
born we cn' that wc are come to this great stage of fools.
And in his As }ou Like It the great hard traces the stages of
growth and development and the final decay of a man from the
cradle of the grave.
All the world's a stage.
And all the men and women merehl actors.,
They have their entrances and their exits,,
And each man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven stages.

The story opens with a mewlingg and puking infant" ... then
the "whining school boy" ... then the lover, "sighing like a
furnace" ... then a soldier, "full of strange oaths" ... then the
justice, "in fair round belly, full of wise saws and modern
instances" and "with eyes severe" ... the sixth stage shifts into
"the lean and slipper'd pantaloon", ... and, finally, second
childhood, "sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything "

It has been truly said "'once a man, twice a child".
These ate inescapable stages of life which humble and great
like, must expciience in their steady passage from the cradle to
the grave.

vMy wife mnd I are now both well advanced in age. We are
fortunate that we are still vigorous in mind and body. But
whenever I see a man or w oman on the street struggling with all
the will and physical power left to them to take one step after
another ... and with bowed head and dimmed eyes ... I remind my
wife that one day perhaps soon we will reach that stage of
physical decay.
We both wish to he spared this last painful experience but we
accept the fact that itis is a decision that is beyond our power.
And when w\e look into the laces of our grandchildren, their
eyes sparkling with the confidence and the vigour of youth, I
think how kind (:oa,! s expressed in nature .. is for the easy
stre, '1.; '. : 1 ... us to slip from one level of life to
I i !! being p uioitlls ci!scious of the change.
Sometimes I ,t quiei 3 and alone and try to recapture the
memories of In\ youth rlhe memories are full and clear but the
sense of feeling is gone, never to he recaptured. And that is why I
like to seeV oung people enjoying themselves ... with
responsibility, ofcourse ... because it happens only once.

"The dalip of an tsiin l." wrote W. S. Landor. "sink into the
leaves and prepare their for the necessity of their fall: and thus
Sinsensibly are we, as years close around us, detached from our
Stenacity of life by the gentle pressure of recorded sorrow."
And again Shakespeare:
.llust endure.
Their going Ihncce. even as their coming hither:
Ripeness is all.

I don't suppose many readers of this column are familiar with
the writing of Joseph Addison (172.'-17 10).
A nd. pleased th' A lmigh t' 's owners to perJi,rm.
Riles in the whirl-winl. and dloec-ts the storm.
Addison wrote twoi essays on life that I read over a half
century ago. They stick in ny n memory. I will record them both
briefly because they are worth remembering even though I will
deal with only o'. in this discussion.
In his first picture of life he sees the human family groaning
under the burdens and miseries of daily experience.
Addison tells how God in Ilis pity, sent an angel to earth with a
great mirror. lie then had all mankind pass in review before this
mirror which emphasized each man's secret fears and burdens.
The angel then instructed all those who had seen their fears
and faults magnified to cast them aside. They all did ... and it
made a great pile.
The angei their instructed each person to take from the pile the
burden lie would prefer to his own ... and each man went away
with a new burden of his own choosing.
A week later the angel returned to earth with his mirror and
went through the same procedure as on his first visit.
He then told the people to once again cast their burdens aside
... and then o, take front the pile again the one thing they felt
suited them most
They all did ... and when they went happily away they were all
carrying their original burden ... having learned that God gives to
each man only the burden lie is most suited to bear.
Addison's other story was "lihe Vision of Mirza". In this story
the highway of life is pictured as a great bridge, narrow at its
approaches, iwidc in the nuiddle and tapered off to a single
pathway onl thie farther shore.
This bridge links the beginiiiig of life with the final scene. A
roaring stream of water boils up under the bridge and sweeps into
eternity ... the bridge is spotted with trap doors which open on to
the rushing waters below.
The approach to the bridge is crowded with young men and


women eager to get their feet planted on the highway of life that
leads hopefully to the farther shore where a single star shines on a
land of fulfilhent.
As the crowd of teni and women step on the bridge trap doors
open and many disappear quickly from sight as they fall into the
surging waters below and are swept away to oblivion.
The line tiins in the broad middle of the bridge where there
are fewer trap doors but three equal ters of die way across the line
becomes thinner still. And it tapers off sharply as men continue
to fall through the trap doors, even as happened to Moses
within sight of the Promised Land.
Finally a single weary traveller reaches the path that leads to
the high goal on the far shore.
Then he, in his turn, is finally overtaken by Father Time ... and
he dies ... hopefully leaving behind footprints in the sands of time
that might help to light the way for a later weary traveller who
seeks the high goal of life.
In this connection Longfellow wrote:
Lires of great men all remind us
We cani make our lives sublime
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints in the sands of time.

Footprints, that perhaps another
Sailing 'er life s solemn main
A firlorn and shipwreck 'd brother.
Seeing shall take heart again.

Some great men are more fortunate than men in their final


passing. It has been well said that "nature is prodigal of her gifts".
Winston Churchill was the greatest man of this century and one
of the greats of all time but he had a tragic passing. In the end he
decayed into a mere vegetable, illustrating Shakespeare's most
tragic line ... "sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything".
In his book "Winston Churchill, the struggle for survival
1940-65", Churchill's doctor Lord Moran, traced his meteoric rise
to power and fame,... and his final decay. The decay started with
a slight stroke to the brain which Churchill himself noticed. The
debility spread until, in the end, he was reduced almost to a mere
vegetable.
His friends and admirers were heartbroken. They wished he
could have died on the field of battle with a smoking pistol in his
hand or in one of his most cherished memories when, as a young
man, he wielded a sabre in the last great cavalry charge in history.
Here was a man of stout heart and great mental capacity ... but
in the end his brain went into decay and he became no more than
a shuffling mountain of flesh.

My friend Lord Beaverbrook had a more fortunate passing. He
went as I would like to go.
The last time I saw him was in his flat in London. He was
confined to a wheel chair and his face was ashen. He didn't
complain but my wife and I could see that he was in great pain.
We knew when we left him that day that this would be our last
meeting on earth.
His last words to me were a lament ... almost a reprimand ...
when he chided me once again for not seizing power when the
chance came to me after my success in breaking down racial
discrimination in the colony in 1956, at a time when the coloured
people wanted a leader who would take revenge on their former
masters.
I could never make him understand that this was not my role
in life. I neither desired power nor the task of meeting the
demands of an embittered people.
The Beaver lived until the following summer. He retained his
faculties up to the end. He was dictating instructions almost with
his last breath. A letter to me must have been one of his last
efforts.
It was sent to me in Nassau. It finally reached me in Turkey
where I was attending an IPI conference.
It was a brief note signed Max in which he said how
fortunate 1 was to be travelling around the world. He was now an
old man, confined to a wheel chair, attended by a devoted wife.
That letter came to me in the evening mail. When I went to the
book shop in the hotel the following morning newspaper
headlines stared at me from the rack: "Beaverbrook Is Dead". He
was 85.

Later I heard from friends in London the glorious manner of
his exit from this scene.
On the Beaver's 85th birthday Lord Thomson of Fleet gave a
dinner in his honour at the Dorchester Hotel. As the time
approached the Beaver was critically ill. He was a dying man and
it was feared he would be unable to attend the dinner.
A few days before the function he had a machine brought to
his bedside. He would record a speech that could be played back
from his vacant seat at the table. But he was too ill to record a
speech.
He told the nurses to take the dictaphone away ... he said he
had decided to attend the dinner and make the speech there.
On the morning of the day for the dinner he had himself
moved to a room at the Dorchester. He sat in a wheel chair in a'
room adjoining the dining room.
When the time for the dinner arrived he called to his son, Max,
to take his arm. Summoning all the will power at his command he
rose slowly from the chair and, resting on his son's arm, he
walked the whole length of the large dining room to the place of
honour at the table.
He had his dinner and then rose to make one of the most
brilliant speeches of his career. It was to be his last public
appearance and he knew it.
In his speech he emphasized that he had served an
apprenticeship here on earth during which he hoped he had
learned lessons that would serve him well in the life beyond the
grave.
At the end of the dinner he took his son's arm and made a
grand exit from the banqueting hall.
He then went back home where the curtain quickly came down
on the life of a remarkable man.
God, what a glorious way for a man to take his exit from this
scene. How I envy him!

Now ... why did I write all this about the lives of individuals?
When I started this article I intended to write about the decay
of nations as seen in events now taking place in England. But my
mind took its own course and I simply recorded thoughts as they
flowed across my memory.
The same principle that applies to individuals is also true of
families and of nations.
In the case of a family a man or a woman sets a pattern
for his children to follow.
The great misfortune for the children of wealthy or famous
parents is that unless their parents take time to impress on
them that all they inherit is a good name but that each human
being in his or her own time must walk the bridge alone ...
they never get a firm grip on life.
In the Vision of Mirza only individuals not families
crossed to the far shore. But a good name gives a young person
entering on life an advantageous start. That's all.
It is impossible to bequeath fame to anyone. More than one
great man has been destroyed because he felt himself capable of
"creating greatness '.Mr. Pindling please note.
This caused the downfall of Napoleon Bonaparte. He thought
that every Bonaparte was a Napoleon. And so he made members
of his family rulers of lands he conquered. But there was only one
Napoleon in the Bonaparte family. His brothers and sisters were
people of mediocre calibre ... and so his great achievements
crumbled about his ears
Some of the greatest Marshals of France during the Napoleonic
era were men who had risen from the ranks.


A Marshal Ney had caught my father's imagination. As a child I
often heard him speak of the dashing courage of this great French
military leader.
But of all the dynasties established by Napoleon only one has
survived.
He made one of his Marshals, who had been a Sergeant in the
French army, the king of Sweden. I've forgotten his family name
but I do remember that he married a charming French girl,
daughter of a silk merchant. The present King of Sweden is
descended from this line started by a man who had been a
Sergeant in the French army but who had the capacity for great
achievement.

Tomorrow I will do the article about the decay of Britain
which we see daily unfolding before our eyes.

In one of my articles recently I referred to the earthquake that
swallowed up most of Port Royal, capital of Jamaica, that had
the reputation of being the wickedest city in this hemisphere.
I think I spoke of it as having taken place early in the last
century. For purposes of accuracy ... the date was 1692.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Fower in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies.
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower but if I could understand,
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is. ROBERT LOUIS
STEVENSON.

U


wno was sent out to the
Bahamas by General Electric in
the States to service their
appliances which in those early
days were only sold by The
General Hardware Company.
In 1961 Mr. Nord retired
and Mr. Geoffrey Jones bought
out his business.
In November 1969 Geoffrey
Jones & Co. Ltd. moved to
their present location and went
into the retailing, as well as the
servicing, of General Electric
appliances.
And, if you go to the store
today it is very doubtful that
you'll find Mr. Jones there.
Instead, he'll be out on the
road with his maintenance
team servicing their ippliianci,
All the service personnel
who work under the guidance
of Mr. Jones, have been trained
bh General Electric in the
States. Mr. Jones' daughter and
store manageress, Mrs. Mike
(Joey) Lothian told me that
they "invest a lot of money in
servicing (training men). parts
and tools". Members of staff
go monthly to General Electric
service schools in the States to
keep them bang up to date ont
the latest servicing techniques
of the latest appliances.
There appears to be a
definite pattern to the success
of business in Nassau and those
with the 'Boss-on -the-spot'
appear to thrive. In the case of
Geoffrey Jones & Co. Ltd the
Boss is on the spot in the
servicing aspect of the business.
Yet back at the store
business is buzzing under the
capable sister team of Mrs.
Joey Lothian nee Jones and
Mrs. Dotty Rae nee Jones.
And, those who doubt the
combination of feminine
beauty with appliance
know-how are in for a pleasant
surprise.
Joie has been in the
business since she left
Government High School nine
years ago and knows the
appliance business inside out.
Joey might be described as the
Executive and Administrative
half of the sister partnership.
She does all the business
transactions, paper work and
ordering and cataloguing of
parts. She gives credit to the
gu\s for teaching her to
catalogue parts in the early
days but now the likelihood is
that she knows what part is
needed before they do.
Joey has worked down the
cataloguing of parts to a fine
art. She uses microfilm which
is simpler. less bulky and
therefore speedy
In fact she knows so much
about parts and servicing that
Joe' is planning to service
appliances herself.
Elder sister. Dotty, another
beauty, has a distinctive flair
for design and may be
described as the designer and
saleslady half of the team.
Actually Dotty is a trained
nurse who qualified at
Radcliffe Infirmary. Oxford,
England. She worked at the
Princess Maaret Hospital for
a year and after she married


she went in with her father.
She holds a diploma from
the G.E. Sales College in the
United States at which time
she was the only woman in the
class.
Dotty says that she finds
that in running a home herself
(she has two children
Richard aged 5 and baby
Spatchas aged 2) is "helpful for
putting together a kitchen".
In fact, Dotty has a natural
flair for designing. She tries to
find out exactly what the
customer really wants and then
makes suggestions. She has put
together several kitchens at
Lyford Cay for which her
knowledge of G.E. appliances,
her practical experience in
running a home and her inborn
knack of home designing
admirably qualify her.
It would be impossible
within the limitations of this
space to even list, no matter
describe, the merchandise for
sale at Geoffrey Jones & Co.
Ltd. They have an excellent
selection of fridges, freezers,
washing machines, dryers and
other major appliances in
lovely decorator colours or
that good old standby, white.
There are minor appliances
galore, electric toothbrushes,
water-piks, hair dryers and
other hair related appliances,
coffee percolators, mixers,
blenders, irons, toasters,
electric kettles and can openers
in decorator colours or
stainless steel.
The lovely refrigerator-freez-
er pictured on this page has a
dispenser for chilled water, ice
cubes and crushed ice. For
those who are skeptical of
"gimmicks" the service men
say that this fridge is easier to
fix than a regular one.
In any case Geoffrey Jones
& Co. Ltd. sell filters which
eliminate a lot of the problems
which we experience with our
often problematical water. This
comes ilovely decorator
colours and retails for 51,300
(but think of the electricity
you'll save that would be
consumed with the continual
opening of the conventional
freezer door for chilled water
and ice.
Lighting fixtures and lamps
are also a big thing at G.J.'s .
Joey claims that they stock
"the largest selection of
fluorescent light fixtures" in
Nassau. Besides the standard
models they also sell power
groove and high output
fixtures.
Geoffrey Jones' also carries
mercury and quartz lamps.
These are used a lot
industrially for playing fields
and parking lots they have a
longer life-hour and are
therefore more economical in
the end.
Geoffrey Jones also sells
light bulbs to hotels here at a
more economical price than
importing them themselves
certainly a good tip for hotels
in the Bahamas who have in a
recent survey and report been
advised to cut down on some
of their excessive expenditures.

hand has an interesting history.
It was dealt initially in an
other r wise long- forgotten
Camrose Irophy match many
years ago. It was the sensation
of the match, and indeed the
sensation of the year among
those people who take such


matters seriously. Then, about
twelve years afterwards, it was
brought out of retirement, and
included in a national charity
duplicate tournament, where it
again produced some startling
results.
Finally, I myself dusted it


off once more, and during a
semi-par contest, stuck it. like
a time-bomb, in thie hands of a
number of unsuspecting
players, mainly to see what
would happen. It's that kind of
a deal. Ilere is the full hand.

In its debut, the hand
created something of a stir. At
one table, North and East both
passed. South bid 1 Heart, and
over West's Spade interference,
North bounced straight to 4
llearts. and that was that.
In the other room, North
not only opened the bidding,
but continued to bid like there
was no tomorrow:
N 1 S W
I C pass 1 H dble
4 1 51) dble 5 S

South failed to make his
contract by one trick, thus
bringing down the contumely
of the international critics on
his head, as well as engineering
a huge swing in the scores. It
was pointed out from many
sides that the Grand Slam is
makeable, even on the good
lead of the 6 of Hearts, which
West actually made in the
match.
I'ventually the tumult and
the shouting died, and the
hand lay dormant in the files,
until the committee who got
together a collection of
"famous hands of the past" for
their charity competition
decided to revive it. No records
were kept, because throughout
the country many hundreds of
tables were in play, and the
local results were all that
mattered. But it is a safe bet
that there were many sacrifices
of 6 Spades by West, which at
a likely cost of 500 would be a
good save against the 1,430
which North-South would gain
by bidding and making 6
llearts.
Then, finally, I brought the
hand back to life in Nassau,
where many years ago I ran a
kind of par contest at the old
Royal Victoria Hotel, as an
experiment. Points were
awarded for both bidding and
play, and on this hand the top
award for North-South was
either finishing in 6 Hearts, or


doubling East-West in 6
Spades. There was a lesser
award to North-South for
going on to 7 Hearts.
However, the playing awards
were much higher than those
for bidding, and here the South
players -- no matter what their
final contract was had to
play in the directed contract of
7 Hearts, with the directed lead
of the 6 of Hearts coming from
West, just as in the original
match. Now put yourself in the
South seat, with all 52 cards on
view, and make all thirteen
tricks. How do you go about
it?
Basically, there appear to be
two approaches: one is to ruff
your losing Spades in dummy,
while the other is to set the
Clubs suit for discards. The
former line, attempted by the
original South player in the
Camrose match, leaves you
with a losing Diamond at the
end, even though you take the
Diamond finesse during the
play. There-is no resting place
for the 2 of Diamonds, and the
contract has to fail.
The superior line, pointed
out many years ago with
righteous scorn by the critics,
is to set up dummy's Clubs.
They play goes like this: take
the opening lead with one of
dummy's top trumps, and
immediately ruff a small Club
in hand. Back to dummy with
a Spade ruff, and ruff another
small Club. Repeat one more
time, and you are then left
with:
none

A 109 8

At this stage, you are in
your own hand, so you play
your Queen of trumps to the
Ace, drawing West's last trump,
run the good Clubs, and finish
by making the Ace of
Diamonds.
And how many of the local
players do you think made
their Grand Slam out of a
maximum of 15? No fewer
than 13, most of whom
*complained to me afterwards
that the hand was too easy!
There's progress for you!

By Abigail Van Buren
0 19i4 i Cl TrikO -N. Y. NIo Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I was really surprised when Joyce asked
me to be maid of honor for her wedding. We've been
classmates for years, but go with different kids. I can't
understand why she chose me. She has many much closer
friends. I accepted because I didn't know how to refuse, but
now I'm sorry, and I'd like to get out of it.
I've already paid Joyce's mom for the dress, but it
hasn't been altered. My mom and I gave a shower for
Joyce. We invited her mom, sisters, aunts and friends, and
they all acted like they were slumming. They openly snub-
bed my mom. I had a lump in my throat the whole time.
My family says if I am in the wedding party they will
go to the church only to see me, but not to the reception.
My dad says he won't go at all. They didn't invite my


O A-A/,61f



steady boy friend to be my escort, so I won't have anybody
to talk to at the reception. At the last minute, should I say
I have an illness in the family, and can't go? Or just tell
them the truth? DILEMMA D.


Get off the hook, both of you will feel better


DEAR DILEMMA: Don't le. Tell your friend that you
have reconsidered and would like out. From what you say,
she'll be as glad to get off the hook as you will.
DEAR ABBY: I am a widow in my 70s and I need
some advice. I have four daughters, and if I asked them,
I'd get four different answers.
A few months ago I saw in the obituary column where
the wife of an old boy friend of mine died, so I waited for
what I thought was a reasonable length of time and then I
wrote him a note and gave him my phone number and said
it would be nice to talk to him some time.
He called me up and we talked for a long time. In the


conversation he said he'd like to see me again, but he
hoped I wouldn't expect any "kid stuff" in the love-making
department. I rather got the Idea that be was trying to tell
me that he was too old for that sort of thing. Well, I'm not,
and if that sl what he meant I don't want to waste my time
with him as I don't have a whole lot of time left. How can I
find out without being too blunt?
OLD BUT NOT TOO OLD
DEAR OLD: I think he was trying to tell you that as
far as he was concerned, his love-making days were behind
him. Whether they are is anybody's guess, but if he thinks
they are, they are.

AUTOMATED LIGHTHOUSE


THE AGE of automation has
reached the Light Station at
Great Isaac.
On February 14, Great Isaac


Lighthouse, 22 miles
northeast of Bimini,
exhibited for the first time a
new light which operates

entirely automatically,
replacing the oil burning
light which mariners have
observed and made use of
since 1859, when proceeding
through the Providence
Northwest Channel.
The new light automatically
switches itself on and off
through a photocell system.
With an array of 12 lamps
taking power from a special
battery complex, it requires
maintenance and attention
at six-month periods only.
The equipment, manu-
factured by A.G.A. (UK)
Ltd., is one of the most
modern navigational light
systems developed in recent
years.
Great Isaac is the first
lighthouse in the world to
have this equipment
installed.
The cost of the installation has
been borne by the U.K.
Department of Trade &
Industry, the actual
installation work being
undertaken by the senior
technical staff of the
Bahamas Lighthouse Service
under the general direction
of Mr. R. Bryenton, an
A.G.A. engineer.
This is the first of five
lighthouse stations in the
Bahamas to be automated
under agreements reached
between the U.K.
Department of Trade and
Industry and the Bahamas
Government at the time of
Independence. Work will
begin on the second station
at Cay Lobos in April, and it
is hoped to complete all five
stations by mid-1975.
Automation of these lights will
not only provide modern
equipment with, in some
cases, greater light range, but
should also show a
considerable financial saving
in the operation of the
Bahamas Lighthouse Service
in future years. The Service
is operated by the Ministry
of Transport.
Although Great Isaac
Lighthouse is automatic, the
Lightkeepers will remain on
the station for one year.
During this period, the
performance will be watched
closely and certain records
kept over that period.


Eat and Grow Younger


That youthful feeling begins


with good protein breakfast


By LELORD KORDEL
Number Twenty-Two of a Series
For years you've been assured that "life begins at
forty." And so it does-if your middle years are pro-
tected from the serious ailments that often sneak in with
the 40th birthday. But I doubt if you've given much
thought to the fact that youth begins at breakfast.


I consider breakfast the most
important meal of the day. For
me it is always a high-protein
meal, with little or no pure
starch of any kind. There's a
solid nutritional basis for this.
My breakfast menu some-
times causes comment among
my fellow breakfasters when-
ever I am away from home. I
remember one morning in the
dining room of a Pittsburgh ho-
tel when I ordered sliced or-
anges, two broiled lamb chops,
and a cube of cheese for my
breakfast. The waitress repeat-
ed the order as though I had
ordered hummingbird tongues.
CANNIBAL'S BREAKFAST!
But the weary-looking couple
at the table next to mine evi-
dently didn't agree with my
choice of breakfast. For, as the
waitress placed the platter of
nicely browned chops in front of
me, I heard the woman murmur
to her husband, "Disgusting! A
regular cannibal's breakfast."
And then she and her husband
smugly downed their own all-
starch breakfast of a patented
cereal, sweet roll and coffee.
Yet I'll wager that around 11
o'clock that morning I had by
far the more energetic body,
and the best-controlled nerves
of the three. And all because I
had the foresight to supply my
mind and body with the type of
food-high-protein-that assures
the most nourishent for mus
cles, nerves and brain cells.
Although you may not have
realized it, your disposition -
your "mood" for the day is
largely determined by the kind
of breakfast you eat. A high-
starch breakfast starts you out
for the day with your appetite
temporarily appeased, yet with
your digestive tract laboring un-
der the burden of a lot of gooey


food that probably will have you
belching before you leave the
table.
A light breakfast of fruit
juice, toast and coffee is not
sufficient nourishment to carry
the hungry body (remember,
you've not eaten for nearly 12
hours when you sit down to the
breakfast table) through a
morning's work with full vigor
and efficiency. The word break-
fast means exactly that-
"break the fast."
FOODS FOR BREAKFAST
Most high-protein foods are
rich in thiamine, particularly
egg yolk, lean beef and lamb.
A splendid energy breakfast is
one consisting of fruit (whole or
sliced citrus fruits, not the juice
alone, melon, berries, pineapple
or other fresh or sun-dried
fruits), scrambled eggs to which
dry skim milk powder and
grated cheese have been added
for flavor and extra protein,
served with a small portion of
hot whole grain mush cooked in
liquid milk made from powder-
ed non-fat milk and served with
honey.

This business of skipping
breakfast entirely is an extreme-
ly foolish habit for anyone, but
more particularly so for the
person who wants to encourage
his body to remain youthful,
strong and vigorous. Many wom-
en-men, too-entertain t h e
false idea that by skipping
breakfast they will "lose
weight."
This reminds me of the near-
ing-40 wife of a friend of mine.
A devotee of the "I must diet"
cult, she religiously skips her
breakfast every morning, mo-
mentarily quieting her rumbling
stomach with several cups of
strong black coffee and a ciga-
ret or two.


But along about 10 o'clock she
is forced to succumb to those
persistent hunger pangs which
were not appeased by the black-
c o f f e e-and-cigaret breakfast.
One or two white-bread sand-
wiches are washed down, either
by a soft drink from the refrig-
erator or by more coffee, and


topped off by a wedge of pie
or a slice of cake left over from
a previous meal.
She reconciles herself to the
number of calories in this high-
starch snack with the thought
that she "saved a lot of calor-
ies" by not eating breakfast.
I need not explain that this
hap-hazard dieter does not lose
weight.
If you can afford meat only
once a day, I would be inclined
to advise you to enjoy this splen-
did high-protein food at break-
fast-a leisurely breakfast that
you've given yourself tim e
enough to eat in comfort by
arising a little earlier.
EAT FRESH FRUIT
Eat all the fresh fruit you
want at breakfast, preferably
the whole fruit. Fruit is a pleas-
ant food with which to begin
any meal, and is an excellent
way of preparing the stomach
for the other food to follow.
If you like your morning cup of
coffee or tea sweetened, for a
real energy beverage try honey
instead of white sugar.
But whatever fruit, beverage,
or high-protein dish you choose
for breakfast, no pure-starch
foods. No white-bread toast, no
sweet rolls, no devitalized cer-
eals.
Now about lunch and dinner.
My handy "Better Eating Plan"
will help in proper selection of
these meals. You may have a

ed envelope to: Lelord Kordel,

BOMB BLAST
BELFAST A huge
terrorist bomb planted in a
hijacked van blasted the
headquarters of a British army
unit in Belfast city centre.
All windows in the building.
formerly the Grand Central
Hotel, were blown out by the
explosion. Many nearby shops
and offices were also damaged
but nobody was hurt.
A Telephone caller claiming
to represent the Irish
Republican Army's provisional
wing told a local newspaper of


'S ARMY HQ
the bomb, saying it contained
1,000 pounds of explosives.
This would have made it the
largest ever set off in Northern
Ireland's four and a half years
of sectarian violence.
But the army sad
eyewitness accounts of the
damage suwnested It actually
contained fewer explosive.
Before the blast the army
evacuated the building, used as
the headquarters of the Fire'
Regiment, Royal Hoth
Artillery.

Winning

Bridge
by VICTOR MOLLO
As competitive bridge grows
daily more complicated-at least
for some players-so questions of
ethics arise with increasing
frequency. When, and for how
long, may a player hesitate or
"trance," n bridge parlance ?
The Revue Francaise de
Bridge has introduced a special
feature in which two well-known
tournament directors deal with
thorny problems. This was one
of the questions put to them :
West East
75 A AK 8 4 2
v K 10 8 6 Q 9 7 4
0 A Q 109 2
SA85 4 K 9 7
North leads the 06 against
West's 3NT. South contributes
the (3 and West's 010 wins.
The d6 is led to dummy's VQ,
and, after an appreciable hesi-
tation, South plays the V5.
Declarer continues with another
heart and assuming that South
has the VA-why else did he
hesitate ?-goes up with the QK.
North produces the VA.
Accused of hesitating im-
properly, South explained that
he was torn between two con-
flicting desires-not to play the
Q8, which might suggest interest
in spades, and the (5, in case it
indicated a preference for clubs.
He was equally averse to both
black suits.
The directors held that, since
South didn't have the VA, he
.ud nothing to think about. He
was at fault. This didn't mean
however, that West would bt
made a beneficiary willy-nilly.
His natural play would be to
play South for the OJ. If North
had VAJ(x), declarer would
still lose two hearts.
There's a moral in this story.
If people played more quickly,
they would enjoy the game a
great deal better-even if they
missed on occasion some obscure
suit signal.

Rupert and th, Jolly Holly-31


In delight and excitement Rupert first unwraps
all his gifts, then no sooner is he dressed
than there comes a knock at the front door.
The caler is Edward Trunk with a piece of
JlUy Holly pinned to his cap. "Merry
Christmas, Rupert I" he booms. "I say, do
you always leave your boots on the door-
step ?" Ha, ha I No, I put them there for a


reason," laughs Rupert. "And see, there's
no paint on them now! The Gomnies must
have cleaned it off during the night." Paint ?
Gomnies? Hey, is this a joke?" demands
Edward. So he has to be told what happened
when Rupert met the Nutwood Gnomes.

race.

First open at Hobby Horse


HISTORY will be made at
the Hobby Horse Race track
in tomorrow's fifth race when
nine top class horses will run
in the first ever "open entry'
race in the Prime Minister's
Cup race.
Racing Secretary and
handicapper David Strachan
said this morning: 'This is the
filt: year that an open entry
race has been introduced at
the track. It simply means
that any class of horse can
enter the race and there will
be no handicapping of
horses."
Strachan, who in his first
year as secretary and
handicapper has gained a
reputation for organizing
exciting races with 12 photo
finish races at the track this
season, said that the
introduction of the open
entry race was the first of
many innovations which he
hoped to introduce at the
track.
