Pan Am to cut out Miami-Nassau run


PAN AMERICAN AIRWAYS is to discontinue its
Miami-Nassau service from April 22 to December 15
as part of a general economy move and is asking Civil
Aeronautics Board approval to suspend the New
York-Freeport service from the same date and for the
same period.
Mr. Max Gurney, PanAm sales director in Nassau,
said the suspensions were a matter of "sheer
economics" brought about by the skyrocketing price
of fuel.
The position however will be reviewed in
December, he said.
PanAm will however continue its daily, year-round,
New York-Nassau-Rock Sound, Eleuthera 707 service.
An Associated Press story today disclosed that the
company has also asked CAB approval to suspend
service between New York and Antigua, and Chicago


and Jamaica on April 22.
PanAm, which withdrew from the
Miami-Freeport market last year, inaugurated its
Miami-Nassau service 46 years ago. It was the carrier's
second international route and its longest running.
Just over a month ago the number of daily flights
were reduced to one.
A number of other factors also played a part in the
decision to end the service, Mr. Gurney said. He
explained that the Boeing 727 which was best
adapted for this type of operation was being
withdrawn for use elsewhere.
Secondly, PanAm's route structure differs from
that of the other U.S. international carriers, because
it has no carry-through to other points in the U.S.
"Most of our traffic on Miami-Nassau is local or
going through on other carriers," Mr. Gurney


explained.
One consideration which may support restoration
of the service is CAB approval of PanAm's application
for the Los Angeles-Miami route. No decision has yet
been reached on this.
"We have told the Bahamas government that we
intend to stay in the Bahamas but are readjusting our
operating routes to make some money," the PanAm
executive said.
The company, he said, is doing a great many
charters. These have increased "at least 25 per cent
over last year in the first two-and-a-half months."
Suspension of the service to Freeport has
necessitated re-alignment of manpower at that
station. Mr. Gurney said that the company had been
successful in re-locating all redundant PanAm
employees in other jobs.


PM urges merchants:







reduce costs lOp.c.


A PACK ED) and
expectant audience at the
Chamber of commerce e
dinner last night listened
to a lengthy discussion on
"the economic facts of life
today" front the Prime
Minister who said
merchants could do much
to arrest inflation and roll
back prices.
Mr. Pindling, in a half hour
speech that ranged over the
world situation and fell short
of any policy statement,
declared that a 10 percent
auctionion -I the "over:d!l cost
of goods, clothes and furniture
could be realized" for the
benefit of Bahamian customers
"if new sources in the
Caribbean, Latin America and
Asia were exploited."
And he urged local
merchants to help break "this
vicious inflationary cycle b\
buying their goods in cheaper
areas."
INFLATION
"Merchants can do much to
arrest inflation and roll back
prices," he said. "Let's face it:
we buy our food and clothes
and furniture from the highest
priced markets in the world
the industrial countries. When
their prices go up, we must pay
more for what we buy. When
we pay more, we must also
-harge more in our stores int
harder to make a profit."

PRIME MINISTER PINDLING
... faring better than most


And he added: "When we
import their goods, we also
import their inflation to add
on top of our own."
The rise in prices provoke
demands for rist., in wages
which, when granted. *'t in
motion another ris" in prices
If the rise in wages is not
thought to meet the rise i,
prices, people are 't
dissatisfied and disgruntled he
said.
And if the rise in prices is
not thought to meet the cost
of buying the goods, more
people are left dissatisfied and


disgruntled. And so it goes on,
said the Prime Minister,
Besides aiming his remarks
at local merchants, the Prime
Minister said families that
possessed initiative could assist
their own cause "by growing
vegetables and fruits in their
baickyards instead of running
to the foodstore each time
they need some "
And, with a topical
comment on the recent
taxi driver dispute, hie said that
taxi-drivers could do
themselves and the country "a
great sen ice" b- coming iup


with a plan that would provide
cheaper transportation from
the airport to town.
OIL CRISIS
Earlier in his speech, Mr.
Pindling told how the oil crisis
"very nearly ruined" our
tourist season, "and if that had
happened, we would have been
in severe balance of payments
difficulties,because our
earnings of foreign exchange
would have fallen sharply."
He reported that last
November, as a result of the
energy crisis, there were
"extensive cancellations of
bookings to all our hotels:
some hotels reported
cancellations as high as 40
percent." There were also
cancellations of flights by the
airlines by nearly 33 percent.
But the Prime Minister was
happy to report last night that
the latest information was that
most cancelled bookings had
been restored and airline
schedules, though still
somewhat curtailed, are more
reliable. (See story this page on
I'tan, merican).
And he said that most hotels
in Nassau, in Freeport and the
Family Island "are now very
nearly full and new business is
showing up." Prospects for a
good season were therefore
high again, he said.
lie pointed out that other
countries had fared far worse
in the energy crisis, especially
in the Caribbean, where one

charged Wednesday that police
officers at the Central Police
Station refused to carry out a
magistrate's request that he be
taken to hospital for treatment
because they said the magis-
trate "don't run this police
station."
Tyrone McKenzie, charged
in court before Chief
Stipendiary and Circuit
Magistrate Wilton Hercules
after being involved in an
incident with police ont
Thompson Lane Tuesday
night, told the judge he was
beaten by the officers.
He also said that after the
incident, he was bitten on his
outer ear and a portion of it
was left hanging. He was
holding a young infant in his
arms at the time, he said.
The incident between
McKenzie and the police
officers took place around
6:15 p.m. Tuesday. Police
officers who arrested him
brought charges of failing to
move when requested by a
policeman, using obscene
language, resisting arrest and
assault.

McKenzie, after making his
pleas made a report to the
magistrate that police officer
818 Sweeting had bitten him
and also beaten him during the
incident.
At the time, he said he had a
baby in his hand. McKenzie
also showed the court his car
which was lacerated and told
the court that after the
incident, a piece of his car had
been left hanging.
The man, in his twenties.
also showed the court marks
resembling fingernail scratches


on his bodl and asked that he
be sent to receive medical
treatment.
He told the court that
during detainment, the police
had refused to carrm him to the
hospital.
Magistrate Hercules then
asked that McKenzie be taken
to the Central Police Station
with a request that he be taken
to the Princess Margaret
Hospital for a medical
examination byN a doctor.
The defendant then left the
court and some minutes later,
returned and in open court


5 committed on mugging


FIVE NEW Providence
youths, charged last October
with the mugging of two
British envoys here for talks
with the Bahamas Government
and the British High
Commissioner, were yesterday
committed to the Supreme
Court for trial.
The group, a former H. M.
Prisons warden, Terrence
Brown, 22, Tom M. Jones, 21,
Mark Bowe, 18, Kirk
Thompson, 17 and David
Munnings, 16 are accused of
robbing and beating British
diplomats Cecil Shipp and


Christopher Bird along East
Bay Street.
Mr. Shipp, a counsellor at
the British Embassy in
Washington and Mr. Bird, first
secretary to the British High
Commission in Jamaica,
reportedly lost their diplomatic
identity cards along with other
items of considerable value.
Altogether, th-ir goods are
valued at about $250. Their
committal yesterday ends a
preliminary hearing into the
charge, which opened before
lower court judge Emmanuel
Osadebay late last year.


told the magistrate that he had
been to the Central Police
Station and that a "Corporal
Filis and a bald-headed
policeman" had both told him
"Hercules don't run this police
station.
"lie does only run the court
and we are not taking you to
the doctor," McKenzie
reported the officers as saying.

The magistrate at this point
then ordered the prosecuting
inspector, Mr. Hugh Burke, to

duty in the court to the

travel allowances, besides the
importation of potatoes

put in very strict currency
controls.
These nations, unable to
earn enough foreign exchange
to buy all the oil they need,
had imposed "almost wartime
economic restrictions to
conserve foreign exchange and
to ward off national bank-
ruptcy."
NO PROBLEM
Continued Mr. Pindling:
"My Government has so far
fared bettered than most in
endeavouring to cope with the
economic crisis of the day. We
do not have a balance of
payments problem. The
Ministry of Finance reports
instead a healthy surplus," he
said.
But he warned that while
Government would listen to all
representations made and take
them fully into consideration.
"my Government will not
allow itself to be bullied or
blackmailed by any person or
group or island."
He concluded by saying that
the government's efforts to
diversify the economic aret
proceeding as planned and "we
are working full speed on plans
to reverse the present trend in
employment," although he did
not disclose what these plans
were.

He further ordered that a
report be taken from the
defendant as to what he was
told at the Central Police
Station and that a report also
be taken from persons in the
court who had heard "this
officious message which was
sent" back to him.
The reports were requested
by the magistrate so that he
could "take the matter up with
the Commissioner of Police."
The case has been adjourned
for hearing on May 15.

-Extraditon-


change will


help Vesco

S.\\ JO)SF Congress has
approved a controversial
reform to the extradition law
despite critics saying it favors
fugitive U.S. financier Robert
L. Vesco, who maintains a
home here, a Congressional
spokesman said Thursday.
"Now Vesco will be able to
remain here without any
wo"ries." one opposition
deputy ,,who had voted against
it commented after the bill was
approve d.
The new law says that no
foreigner will be extradited
from Costa Rica on a simple
request from abroad. Any
petition will have to be
accompanied by a series of
prerequisites which still have
not been outlined. The bill was
proposed by President Jose
Figures, a close friend and
business associate of Vesco.
Opposition to the bill also
has been voiced by a former
President, students, news-
papers, legislators, businessmen
and industrialists who say
Vesco's presence damages the
image of the country.
Vesco is sought on fraud
charges stemming from the sale
of mutual funds around the
world. lie is also a
co-defendant in a trial in New
York along with former
Attorney General John N.
Mitchell and ex-Commerce
Secretary Maurice Stans. They
are accused of trying to help
Vesco in the fraud charge
investigation in exchange. For
a 5200,000 donation to the
197 2 Nixon re-election
campaign.
Last year (Costa Rican courts
rejected two U.S. government
requests to extradite Vesco
despite an extradition treaty
between both nations.
The spokesman said the bill
was passed in a mandatory
third call vote in a Legislative
Assembly's closed-door session.
The Assembly is ('osta Rica's
unicameral Congress. He added
that all ruling party deputies
anld most of the opposition
legislators voted in favour of it
but did not give the number of
votes. In two other required
votes last week. the assembly
had approved the bill.
Vesco lihas investments in
Costa Rica valued at over 25
million dollars. I1',

APOLOGY ON

DRUG STORY
IN THE magistrate's court
hearing on March 13 against
Jamaican Anthony
Montgomery Cooke. who
pleaded guilty to importing
and possessing marijuana and
was sentenced to one year in
prison, Inspector Hugh
Burke, prosecuting, told the
magistrate that the police
obtained Cooke's cash sales
book recording points of
distribution ot tihe drug.
It was stated in court that
one of the points listed was
"'Grand Central". Mr. George
Constantakis, owner of Grand
Central Hotel. Charlotte
Street, has objected that the
public might understand this
to be a reference to his hotel.
Upon further investigation
by The Tribune it was
discovered that what was
actually listed in Cooke's
sales book was "Central" -
not "Grand Central" as
inadvertently stated in court.
There was no clarification as
to where "Central" was
located.
Listed in Cooke's book
were the following:
"E. St. & $500
Central 1 $500
Winston @ $600
Freeport --. "


We apologise to Mr.
Constantakis for any
embarrassment that this
inadvertent reference, "Grand
Central," might have caused
him and his hotel.

Govt. may allow



Bahamian agents



for Haitian goo&-.


By NICKI KELLY
GOVERNMENT is considering the establishment o( Baoih.i: a!,
agencies to handle cargo brought here by laitian boat. ra ,.
Minister Darrel Rolle disclosed in the House vesicidlai


In a hard-hitting address, Mr.
Rolle emphasized the need to
curb the illicit trade that
Hlaitians engage in here, and
the attendant problems of
pollution and disease.
He could not therefore
support the proposal by
Mr. Cleophas Adderley,
(Nassau-Ind.) that some place
be provided for these boats
where they could dock and
off-load without being
"harassed" by the Port
Authority.
Mr. Adderley's motion for a
committee "to inquire into all
matters relating to the docking,
*off-loading and loading of
Haitian boats trading between
Haiti and New Providence was
subsequently defeated.
The issue had been a
national problem for a
considerable period of time,
and both the former and the
present governments had made
some attempt to deal with it,
Mr Rolle said.
DISTINCTION
It was important however,
to draw a clear distinction
between the two categories of
Haitians with which his
Ministry and the Bahamas as a
whole were concerned.
The first were those who
had been granted permits to
work in the Bahamas and the
second was the 30-40,000
illegal Haitians now present in
the Bahamas. "And this is a
reduced figure," Mr Rolle
pointed out.
These Haitians, he said, were
continuing to come non-stop
by the only means available to
them, and that was by boat.
The government was
concerned therefore with these
boats and the illegal entry into
the country of passengers and
cargo.
The most recent effort to
deal with the situation was the
establishment of Inagua as a
port of entry for Haitians to
clear their produce before
proceeding to Nassau to unload
and leave within 72 hours.
"Unfortunately, to achieve
the satisfactory objective that
the government had in mind, a
certain degree of cooperation
was expected trom the Hlaitian
government, and today I am
not in a position to confirm
that we have achieved our
objectives in that regard," the
Minister declared
Not only were the Haitian
boats overstaying their time,
but they had become a
permanent selling establishment
at the dock, which from time
immemorial had been reserved
for Bahamians.
ILLtII1GAL
Stressing that these Haitians
were here illegally. Mr. Rolle
said that both police and
immigration had displayed all
courtesies that would be
extended to anyone in breach
of the law
The dock was reserved
exclusively for Bahamians, and
no boats, legally or illegally,
should come there and
compete with Bahamians.
"I will keep them (the
Haitians) in the harbour and
there will be no change in that
at all," he said in reply to Mr.
Adderley's plea for dock space.
It was not a matter of
humanitarianism to allow
illegal immigrants in the
country to deprive Bahamians
of their livelihood, he asserted.
"They will be taken to court
and they will be prosecuted for
violating our laws," he added.
What was needed, he said,
was a situation whereby the
matter could be controlled by
controlling the size and
number of Haitian boats
departing for the Bahamas.
CONDITIONS
Such control would also see
that the goods on board were
those allowed for importation
into the Bahamas and that the
vessels met certain sanitary

lONDON lan Ball, a 20-year-old
unemployed Englishman, was brought
into court today and charged with
attempted murder during a bid to kidnap
Princess Anne from her car in the heart of
London last nhit.
Ball, leann -ced and bearded, stood
stiffly in the dock at the Bow Street
Magistrate's Court, handcuffed to two
detectives
lie spoke only once during his
lO-second appearance. saying in a
London accent "1 want to apply for legal
aid "
The court ordered him held lfo
another hearing on March 28 on the
charge of attempting to murder Princess
Anne's person-i bodyguard, Inspector
James Beaton
Beaton was one of tour persons
wounded as the would-be kidnapper
fired :7, 1 1..i at the royal limousine.
The others were Anne's chauffeur and a
policeman and a passing journalist who
tried to intervene. Beaton and the
policeman were reported in serious
cond ition
The 23-year-old Princess and her
husband of five months, ( .ipt. Mark

But police experts said the holes left

charged


Police from Buckingham Palace, 150
sards away, overpowered the gunman and
police sources said they found a long
ransom letter nearby addressed to Anne's
mother. Queen Elizabeth.
The Daily Telegraph said the letter
asked for a ransom of a million pounds
(S2.3 million). The Daily Mail said it was
tull of wild ravings about alleged
injustices.
The Queen and her husband, Prince
Philip, who are on an official visit to
Indonesia, were immediately informed of
the attack by cable.
Prime Minister Harold Wilson ordered
an immediate inquiry and Home
Secretary Roy Jenkins was expected to
make a statement in the House of
Commons.
After the attack, the shaken Princess
and her husband were bundled into a
backup police car that had been following
them and were whisked into Buckingham
Palace.
According to police sources, the
compact white Ford swerved in front of
the royal car and forced it to halt, its
brakes screaming.
,\ man jumped out, shouted something
to a bystander and fired a shot at him.
Then he raced to the limousine and fired
six The uniformed police on duty in The
Mall rushed to investigate and was then
shot in the stomach.


Eyewitnesses said a passing taxicab
braked hard. The driver jumped out and
helped police overpower the assailant.
Within minutes more than 20 police
and military police vehicles swarmed into
the area which was quickly cordoned off
by troops and police.
The entire Mall, a broad tree-lined
avenue three-quarters of a mile long from
Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace,
was blocked to traffic.
Policemen could be seen on their hands
and knees, apparently searching for
revolver shells.
The Princess is fourth in line of
succession to the throne, following
behind her elder brother, Prince Charles
who is serving aboard the Frigate Jupiter
now visiting San Diego, California, and
her younger brothers, Princes Andrew,
14, and Edward 10.
Both Andrew and Edward are at school
in Britain. Princess Margaret, the Queen's
sister, is at present visiting the Caribbean
island of Mustique.
The attack on the Princess thus came
with most of the Royal Family outside
the country.
Inspector James Beaton, injured in the
shooting affray, took over as Anne's
personal bodyguard on Nov. 14. her
wedding day. The 30-year-old Scot was
classified by Scotland Yard as a crack
shot and keen sportsman. He is married
and has two young children.


The tall, lean man in the pin- striped suit


LONDON Police
tightly guarded Bow
Street Magistrates'
court today as Ian Ball.
a 26-year-old unem-
ployed Englishman, was
charged with the
attempted murder of a
detective during a bid
to kidnap Pr' ,ess
Anne.

Scores of uniformed
and plainclothes police
ringed the court
building amid the
hubbub and chaos of
London's central fruit
and vegetable market at
C o v e n t Ga r den
Everyone entering was
thoroughly searched


and questioned before
being admitted.
Ball's case was heard
in the oak-panelled
Number One court.
The small chamber
was soon filled to
bursting with members
of the public and
associates or relatives of
the various accused due
to appear before
magistrate Kenneth
Barraclough.
For more than half
an hour. a string of
routine cases was dealt
with.
A surly, heavily built
youth, handcuffed to a
police officer, was
brought in to be told he


would be held for a
further week pending
more investigation of a
charge of violence
brought against him.
There followed a
pretty blonde on a
drugs offence and a
French youth on a
theft charge.
The court then
became more crowded
as a dozen young men
and women went into
the dock.
They were Welsh
nationalists charged
with obstructing the
highway during a

with bullets last night.
But the lighthearted
atmosphere vanished
when Ball. tall, lean and
athletic-looking, was
hustled into the dock.
His wrists were
handcuffed to plain
clothes policemen one

POLICE

STORY

OF THE

ATTACK

Police gave this account of
the attack:
The Queen's daughter and
her husband were returning
from a showing of a
documentary film about 8
p.m. when a white Ford
forced the limousine to a stop
on The Mall, the ceremonial
avenue leading to the palace.
A man got out of the Ford
and began shooting, hitting
Alex Callender, the royal
chauffeur, and Inspector
Beaton and shattering the
front and rear windows of the
limousine. Beaton tried to
fire hack, but his gun
jammed.
The man also shot
constable Michael Hills and a
journalist.
Iills managed to get off a
warning on his walkie-talkie
hejore he collapsed.
Anne, her lady-in-waiting,
Rowena Brassey, and Capt.
P'hillips, stayed in the back of'
the limousine until more
police arrived to rescue them.
One eicewitness said the
gunman shook the door in a
rain attempt to get in.
"They were very calmhn, said
eyewitness Sandv Scott."
Mark had his arm around her
in a very protective sort of
way. "

The Princess telephoned
the news of her escape to her
parents, who are on a state
visit to Indonesia, and to her
elder brother, Prince Charles,
who is ser-ing with the frigate
Jupiter on the west coast of
thl i'nitcid States.


Are you all right, love?

THERE WERE conflicting reports from eyewitnesses
that a second man was involved in the affray but this could
not be confirmed.
One eyewitness, Miss Sandy Scott, said her car was
forced off the road by the white Ford which then forced
the royal limousine to halt.
She said she saw Capt. Phillips in the back of the car with
his arms around Anne while the assailant was trying to
wrestle open the door of the limousine.
Then when Anne and Phillips tried to scramble out the
opposite side, the man ran around and they beat a hasty
retreat inside.
After the man had been arrested, Miss Scott said she
leaned in the car and asked the Princess, "Are you all right,
love?" She said Anne answered: "Yes, I'm fine, thank
you."
The attack occurred at 1900gmt, Scotland Yard said.
The Princess immediately telephoned her father, Prince
Philip, in Jakarta and her brother Prince Charles.
Palace sources said she told them both she was
thankful to be in one piece, although deeply disturbed by
the incident. (AP)


I'll keep trying,


says Hearst


H IL LSBOROUGH
Randolph A. Hearst promised
to press for a national
television appearance for two
members of the Symbionese
Liberation Army who claim
their statement might help
free his kidnapped daughter
Patricia.
"I am still going to try to see
if there isn't some way they

Hearst, editor of the San

IRA offers



ceasefire



package


DUBLIN -- The Irish Republican Army today offered a
cease-fire on its own conditions in its bomb-and-bullet
campaign on British-ruled Northern Ireland and withdrawal of
British troops was a key demand.
In a statement issued through the Republican bureau in Dublin
the guerillas put down three main requirements:


Britain must declare an
intention to withdraw troops
from Northern Ireland in a
phased and orderly way.
Allow the "Irish people"
to determine their own lasting
political solution without
interference.
Free all prisoners and
guarantee amnesty for those
wanted by Northern Ireland
security forces.
The IRA has made similar
demands before and both
Conservative and Labour
British governments have
rejected them.
However, the latest offer
comes when the newly elected
Labour government is assuming
responsibility for the Northern
Ireland strife which has raged
since 1969 and brought a death
toll of 979.

EDITORIAL

Out of the past



By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(To. understand this article you must read the beginning of this
story in yesterday's Tribune when I broke off in the middle of
reminiscing on events that took place in the Bahamas a half
century' ago.)

AT THAT TIME there was a lot of stealing from boats in the
harbour. Baron Bliss' letter to the Chief Justice was all the Chief
needed to set him off.
At the opening of the next Supreme Court session he
condemned the Bahamian people for their light-fingered activities
and declared that anyone who came before him in the future for
stealing from boats in the harbour would get the maximum
punishment.

Before I go on with the story about Baron Bliss' complaint I
must tell you of a brush I had had with the Chief a short time
before.
As you may well judge ... in my early days as Editor of The
Tribune, I made some pretty bad mistakes because I trusted
people and believed almost any story that was brought to me. I
was too young and too inexperienced to know the evil side of life
... and so I fell into pitfalls almost every day.
At the end of my first six months in the job I had so many
shocks with the mental dishonesty of many people ... even
prominent men ... who didn't hesitate to feed me false
information to serve their own ends that I became ill and my
family packed me off to Jamaica to give me a chance to recover
from the shock.
Effic McLaughlin was living in Kingston with her Caymanian
husband Captain Dick McLaughlin at the time and her sister Aline
Barbes was with her. They are Inaguans and old friends of mine
and so we had a good time together.
Somehow my family got the foolish idea that if they didn't get
me away from the island for awhile I might, in my despondency.
jump out of the second floor window of my bedroom ... a
thought that never crossed my mind but I was really glad to get
away from the island so that I could reorientate my
understanding of life and people.
It was while I was in Jamaica that I made resolutions that
formed the foundation for my future career on The Tribune.
Believe me, folks, I learned this job the hard way and it is
only because I resolved while I was in Jamaica to be "tough" that
I survived the ordeal. I made up my mind ....come hell or hig1
water ... I was going to ride on the crest of the wave.


Anywav, one Saturday morning an old woman came to me
crying. She said her daughter was pregnant ... the father of the
child had gone to the Registry for a marriage licence and he had
been turned away.
This was a ridiculous story, of course. But I was young and
inexperienced and I believed her.
The Registry was closed on Saturday. Instead of waiting until
Monday to check the facts I rushed into print with a blistering
attack on the Registry.
The weeping mother who came to me was an innocent old
soul. She had been fooled by the young man who had made her
daughter pregnant.
This was just a story he had told her. He had not been near the
Registry and he had no intention of marrying the girl.
Early Monday morning the Chief Justice sent for me. And boy
S ... he put hell on me that day.
"But it was a mistake, sir," I pleaded.
S "Men in responsible positions don't make mistakes," he
declared sternly.
He ended up by requiring me to print an apology he wrote for
; me on the front page of The Tribune for eight consecutive issues
... that meant a whole month because at that time both The
Tribune and The Guardian were published only twice a week on
; Wednesday and Saturdays.
Needless to say, I smarted under this humiliation ... because
the whole thing made me look so stupid.

Now then ... let's get back to Baron Bliss' letter to the Chief.
Captain Stephen Dillet was a seasoned mariner, one of the few
Bahamians up to that time who had earned a Board of Trade
Certificate from England as a qualified captain.
For many yeais he was the Second Officer on the Imperial
Lighthouse Tender Carnarvon. At that time the Captain and the
First Officer had to be retired officers from the Royal Navy.


The Captain was named Lobb. I think the First Officer's name
was Strombom. He had married a Bahamian girl with an obvious
touch of the tar brush. I am not too sure of Strombom but I
remember the family. Definitely one of the officers on this ship
was named Strombom. Perhaps Mr. Herbert McKinney can set me
right if I'm wrong on this name.
Anyway Captain Dillet and my father were close friends. He
and my father crusaded together for reforms to help the coloured
people. They organized the first Flag Day in the Bahamas to raise
funds for some public cause. In their inexperience they made the
mistake of giving the sellers open plates, so most of the money
was never turned in. Since then collection cans are sealed with a
slit in the top.
A school has been named after Captain Dillet by the P.L.P.
government.
When he retired from the Lighthouse Service Capt. Dillet
worked for my father on The Tribune for a salary of four pounds
sterling a month ... really a handsome salary for a job on a
newspaper at that time.
He worked for me for a time after my father's death. Finally
he became too old and he retired. But he lived up Shirley Street,
only a short distance from The Tribune and I spent some time
every Sunday with him. He was a crusader in his day and so we
had a lot in common.
When I went to see him the Sunday after the blast by the Chief
Justice appeared in The Tribune he told me that no one had
stolen the Baron's moorings.
Capt. Dillet said that there was a strong current at the western
end of Potters Cay. He had made calculations. He told me exactly
the spot where to find the moorings which he said would be silted

over by sand.
He was right. The moorings were found.
I then went to the Chief Justice. I told him that the
moorings had been found and that he had committed a serious
libel on the good name of the Bahamian people. I demanded that
he make an apology in open court.
"It was a mistake," he pleaded.
"Remember sir," I pointed out, "men in responsible positions
don't make mistakes. You will apologise or I will be obliged to
expose you in The Tribune. "
The next day he made a statement from the bench reporting
that the moorings had been found. He apologised handsomely for
the "mistake" he had made.
When I think of the things that I experienced in my 53 years as
Editor of The Tribune ... I can tell you they were rough years but
they are rich with rewarding memories. I have had crowds of fun
getting in and out of trouble. It wasn't always funny-at the
time though. It was a grim struggle for survival.

Now I am getting near to the story about Baron Bliss in
Hamshere's book.
But before I do this I must give you the background to the
event he records.
It must have been some time in 1919 or 1920 that Baron Bliss
first came to the island because it was during my early association
with Father Chrysostom which started soon after I came home in
1919 from overseas service in the first world war.
In the years that followed Baron Bliss succeeded in annoying
just about everybody holding any public office in the Bahamas by
his letters of complaints which were sent out almost daily
I suppose we should have been sorry for the Baron. He was
suffering from a serious affliction which made him constantly
irritable and this was the only way he had of giving vent to his
frustration. He also wanted attention and recognition badly.
Early in 1926 he sent a proposal to the government which waos
sent to the House in a message from the (Governor
In this proposal he offered lo bmild a lighthouse, provided ai
plaque bearing his name as the donor was; placed on the base ,I
the structure. I don't renembc now whether he was offering t,)
build a lighthouse on a new location or whether he wanted to
build a more modern lighthouse in place of one that was already
established.
By that time I was a member of the House but I am not too
clear on the details after nearly a half century.
Some of those boys in those boys in the House in those days could be rough.
especially Capt. Eric Solomon. liHe was tough.
That was a hot debate that night. The fellows told the Baron in
plain language what he could do with his money and where he
could stick his lighthouse.

This was the end of Bar,,n Bliss in the Bahamas. Soon after thi,
crushing humiliation he weighed anchor and sailed away to
British Honduras where the people apparently received hiltt
kindly.
Soon after he was there ... before the people had time to know
him well ... he was suddenly stricken with a disease that worked
fast because of his paralysed condition. He died in a few days. It
was said at the time that it was from fish poisoning.

His Baroness was a big ... horsey type ... but, nevertheless, a
rather handsome woman who must have had a hell of a time with
the Baron.
I remember that he gave his yacht and most of his fortune to
the people of British Honduras. leaving his wife the comparatively
small income of 1000 pounds sterling a year.

At least one man got a joy ride out of the yacht. Some time
after his death the Colonial Secretary of British Honduras
steamed into Nassau harbour in the Sea King. He was on a
glorious cruise in an effort to sell the yacht for the British
Honduras government!
I don't know what finally happened to the Sea King.

In his book on the British Caribbean colonies Hamshere
records that the Baron Bliss Trust yielded the government of
British Honduras an income of 10,000 pounds sterling a year
"that has provided a number of useful amenities in the form of a
museum, an art gallery, an industrial school, water supplies, the
Burdon canal linking Belize to the Sibun river and prizes for an
annual regatta. In his memory March 9th is celebrated as a
holiday as Baron Bliss Day."

CORRECTION: Two mistakes appeared in this column last
night. The word "heed" was used instead of "breed" in the first
line at the top of the second column. It should have read. "A new

And the Governor to whom I referred was Sir William
Grey-Wilson, NOT Gibson.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
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." HELEN KELLER

Fuel problem

handled wrong

EDITOR, The Tribune.
Recently Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur D. Hanna
authorized price hikes at the
gas pumps averaging to 1 2c per
gallon, this increased the cost
of living for the Bahamian and
also the operating cost for all
public transportation.
The Taxi Cab Union, one of
the hardest working groups
that helped to put the PLP in
power, has been told in more
ways than one that not only
will they make less money to
take home to their families,
but a bus service will be
implemented to share the small
profits that they may make.
A few months ago it was
reported that the Bahamas
Government was charging gas
importers 30c per gallon to
bring in a gallon of gas that
only cost 15c per gallon, now
all the Government had to do
Swas go down 50'" on their
charge to the importers, who
could then sell it to the outlets
for that much less, and the
outlets would then sell their
gas to the public for the same
price they were selling before
and still make a good profit for
a time to come, as a result
there would have been no
trouble with the Petroleum
Dealers Association,the
Bahamian families, or the hard
working men of the Taxi Cab
Union.
This move would of course
put less money in the Public
Treasury, but it seems as
though there is too much in
there that they are playing
with now, so let's share some
S with the people.

CORRECTION
EDITOR, The Tribune.
re MISQUOTE IN YOUR
I SSU'E TU ESI)DAY, 5
FEBRUARY 1974
Your article of the 5th
Sultimo captioned
"Suggestion box brings results
from Customs," states "M
Hepburn said that it was as a
result of the Tribune bringing
the matter to the attention of
Government that the matter
was corrected." Please be
advised that this is a misquote
I do recall confirming to you
prior to February 5. 1974. that
the rate of the British pound is
now officially S2.30 as has
been recently received from
the Treasury.
When you enquired as to
the time of the change, you
were told that I did not recall
the exact date at the time, but
it was give or take three days
to a week on either side of our
last conversation relative to the
value, of the British pound; that
issue appeared on January 14,
1974.
1 was and still am not in a
position to say that it was as a
result of The Tribune bringing
the matter to the attention of
the Government that the
matter was corrected.
As a matter of fact, during
our discussion in January on
the question of the pound, it
was stated that the pound had
been pegged at the insistence
of the Chamber of Commerce
and that it is under review
from time to time.
A correction of this
misquote would be
appreciated. I regret the delay
in requesting the same.

Ex-cabbie raps taxi drivers


EDITOR, The Tribune,
Please allow me a little space
in your valuable column, that I
may express my views.
Now Sir, speaking about the
bus at the Airport; I thought
that was the best thing the
Government could have
thought of to help the poor
people.
I have been driving a taxi for
the past eight years, and many
times I have noticed the people
from the family islands come
to Nassau by way of the
airport and are unable to get a
taxi to town bec.ausc they do
not have five dollars tor cab
fare.
Another point I would like
to touch is that many times the
poor black Bahamian would
stand tip at the airport tor an
hour and a half trying to get a
taxi to town and have been
turned down bi drivers
Eventually they would have a
meter taxi called from town.
This is a shame. I was hoping
that some day the Governmlenti
would look into this.
On many occasions I have
heard Taxi drivers telling
people from the family islands
that they do not carry cane.
conch and fish in their cars. I
also heard them sa\ that you
did not split the plane tare .,
why split the taxi farc
I know then all. I have
worked among them for years'
Somare arc very dishonest to the
public, especially the p'or
black Bahamian. I am very giid
I do not drive a taxi anymore
because seventy-five percent of
taxi drivers are silly men.
I would like for the
Government to inform these

Swing Into line with this new Dodge


THE NEW 1974 Dodge Dart
Swinger is one of the show pieces at
Central Garage these days. This sleek
member of the Dodge line has an
excellent blend of styling,
economy manoeuvreability. It is also
roomy and comfortable.
Economy comes from the 198 CID
Slant Six engine or the 318 CID V8
engine. The wheelbase of only Ill
inches makes parking a breeze. It also
takes the horrors out of downtown
traffic because of the case of
handling.

money with such engineering features
as the electronic ignition system that
eliminates points and the condenser. It
is virtually maintenance free and gives
faster starts in all kinds of weather.
This is because the system delivers 35
percent more starting voltage.
The Swinger also has unibody
construction. The entire body is a
solid, welded unit that resists rattles
and squeaks. Seven stage rustproofing
helps make sure the Swinger keeps
looking new over the years. The
torison bar suspension gives a smooth
ride with great road stability:
Inside the doors are protective steel
beams. Under the hood, there is a new
coolant recovery system that helps
eliminate the possibility of coolant
loss. This means that the chance of the


engine overheating is reduced.
The Swinger, like all the Dodge
models, has impact-absorbing bumpers
- a front and rear hydraulic bumper
mounting system with built-in shock
absorbers. On minor impacts, the'
'bumper slides in, then bounces back to
its original position.
Dodge offers a long list of optional
for the man who wants his car
practically custom built. Some of
these are standard features a wide,
clean, functional instrument panel,
"door-ajar" warning lights, a handy
compartment in the driver's door for
maps, vent windows, a digital clock, a
large glove box with coin retainer, a
wide variety of sporty wheel covers
and wheels, air conditioning, lots of
radios to choose from, a sun roof,


power door locks, automatic spu
control, power windows, power sea-,
In the safety line. Dodge off-'
many features to take the worry (o:i
of driving such as anti-theft steermn
column lock, backup lights, dnid
braking system, energy-absorbing front'
seat backs and armrests. Flanie
fitardant interior material. hazard
warning light system, high-%r-. nf.'
windshield, keyless door locking, an d
many others.
Dodge offers for 1974 many model
to fit any purse and any garage from
the luxurious Monaco Brougham t(,
the Monaco Custom, Monaco, the
Charger, the Coronet and Coroetm
station wagon, the Challenger and the
Sportsman bus.

Garage in Oakes Field.

SHEENA AND Paulette
Johnson, teenage winners of
the 1974 Pontiac Firebird
Sport Coupe in the "Raffle for
Heart" drawn at the Drumbeat
Club last Friday night, had
mixed emotions as they took
possession of the car on
Tuesday afternoon. They were
happy to be the winners but
they expressed deep
disappointment that they will
not be able to keep the car.
The decision to sell the car
was made by their parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Paul Johnson of
7-Hills Estate, South Beach.
The money will be put towards
furthering their education after
they graduate from St. Ann's
school.
The car is presently on
display at the Nassau Motor
Company on East Shirley
Street which is assisting the
Johnsons in finding a buyer for
the sleek sport coupe.
Presentation of the car was
made by Lady Sassoon,
chairman of the Sir Victor
Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart

Foundation and Mrs. Julian
Maynard, chairman of the
raffle committee, at Potters
Cay. It was at this location that
Mrs. Johnson bought the
winning ticket when the car
was on display there the last
day of the raffle in February.
The Johnsons had a total of
three tickets on the car.
Ever since Friday night's
announcement over ZNS the
Johnsons have been over-
whelmed with congratulations
on their good fortune.
Calssmates at St. Ann's all
indicated a desire for a ride in
the "heart" car as the Johnson
girls became the centre of
attention at classes on Monday.
The "Raffle for Heart" to
raise funds for The Sir Victor
Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart
Foundation had three other
prizes on the tickets.
Second prize of the RCA
Colour TV was won by Mrs.
Elizabeth Bronkie of Nassau.
third prize of two round-trip
tickets to Luxembourg was
won by G.S. Golemis of Miami:
and fourth prize of the
heavy-duty vacuum cleaner was
won by Donald Johnson of
Nassau.
A final auditing of figures is
now being done but the
committee has indicated that
the total amount would top
last year's figures by a slight
margin.
Co-chairman for "Raffle for
Heart" along with Mrs.
Maynard as chairman were:
Mrs Cleophas Adderley, Mrs.
R. Ernest Barnes, Mrs. David
Clarke and Mrs. Edwin Deal.
The raffle tickets, sold
during the month of February
was one of the major
fund-raising projects for the Sir
Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation. The other
major fund-raising event was
the annual Heart Ball which
was held on Feburuary 16 at
the Paradise Island Hotel.
Friday night's drawing took
place at the annual "Drumbeat

DEAR ABBY: We are an elderly couple living in a thbre-
room apartment on the second floor. Our greatest pleasure
is listening to the radio and TV. My wife especially enjoys
the Saturday afternoon Metropolitan Opera broadcasts.
Our problem is the tenant directly below us. When we
have our radio or TV on, she starts knocking on her ceiling
with a broom handle as a signal for us to turn down the
sound. She knows my wife is hard of hearing because as,
wears a hearing aid, and we try to keep the sound down
because we don't want trouble with the neighbors. My wife
gets irritated when this knocking goes on while she's trying
to listen to the TV.
We asked the lady downstairs to please quit harassing
us in this manner. Her only answer was: "Don't talk to rme
about it. For years I have listened to you walking on rmy
head!"
Do you think a complaint to the landlord-or the police
-would be in order? N. Y. POST READER

DEAR ABBY: My 33-year-old son is an attractive, suc-
cessful professional man who always has a girl on the
string. He will date her exclusively for months, wining and
dining her and giving her a big rush. He even ingratiates
himself with her parents. And just when everyone expects
him to slip a ring on her finger he decides she is not the
girl for him.
The girl ends up with a broken heart, and my son the
heartbreaker starts the same routine with another girl.
I can see it happening again, and I am terribly upset.
What is wrong with a man who behaves this way?
DISTRESSED
DEAR DISTRESSED: That all depends on what goes
on between your son and the girl. If he only dates her and
makes no promises and she winds up with a broken heart,
she has taken too much for granted. But if he leads her on
with promises of marriage and then drops her, he's a heel.
Don't be distressed. He's better off than the man who
marries and has a couple of children and THEN decides
the girl is not for him.

All seems to hinge on the
position of the VA. Can declarer
give himself a chance If it's
wrong ?
Against the average player
there's no hope, but here de-
tenders were in the top class
and South devised a scheme
worthy of their mettle.
After drawing trumps, he
cashed the OA K and 4A K,
following with the 45--and 4&Q!
Having created the impression
taat he had started with double-
tons in both minors, he led a
heart to his VK.
Consider West's predicament.
If South had live spades and
four cards only in the minors,
he must have four hearts,
something like Q K Q 10 x to
explain his elimi-nation play. If
so, West was in mortal danger.
It he won the trick and returned
a heart, he would be playing into
a tenace. If he played anything
else, the ruff and discard would
be fatal. So West ducked, the
only defence to beat the con-
tract-had the illusion so artisti-
cally conjured up by South been
the truth.

-BAHAMAS--

500 SET

FOR

JUNE 7
BAHAMAS Power Boat
Association have scheduled
the Bahamas "500" race on
June 7.
With transportation of the
racing equipment a major
problem this year, it was
decided to start the event in
the international waters of
the Gulfstream off Fort
Lauderdale, Florida and race
directly to Freeport, Grand
Bahama.
A short inshore circuit will
be completed there as the
boats turn to a course
through Bimini, Gun Cay.
Chub Cay in the Berry Islands
and the finish in Nassau
harbour.
The event will retain its
title, the Bahamas "500", but
this year will be in kilometers
for a distance of
approximately 300 miles.
Entry applications will be
in the mail this month and
will cover both the Open
World Championship class
boats of over 1200
horsepower and speeds up to
90 m.p.h. and the
Manufacturer's Production
classes for the Pan American
Trophy.
A minimum purse of
S10,000 has been posted in
the Open division, while up
to $5.000.00 will be added in
the Production classes.
The Ministry of Tourisni
has announced there is no
shortage of fuel in the
Bahamas and it will be made
available to all race boats
for their return upon advance
ordering to insure proper
octane.
Racing the shorter
circuit will mean that a stop
will not be necessary to take
on added fuel and thie time
for the Race should be a new
record.
Pre-race parties and tire
mandatory Drivers' Meeting
will be held in Fort
Lauderdale through tlhe
courtesy of Le Club
International, while the
Bahamas activities will be
held at the Nassau Yacht
Haven and the Pilot House in
Nassau.
This year will mark the 8th
running

Lively and Tutton link




for Jamaica clash


THE BAHAMAS national
Rugby Squad take on Jamaica
for the Barclays Cup on
Saturday 3:30 p.m. at the Blue
Hill Golf Club.
The Barclays Cup is played
for every two years and the
two countries normally arrange
to play the game during the
Caribbean tournament.
However, this year, Jamaica
was unable to travel to the
tournament which was held in
Trinidad so the fixture was
carried over to this month.
Doug Brown, manager of the
Jamaican team is already here


in Nassau and has informed the
Bahamas Rugby Union that the
Jamaican party will consist of
20 players plus officials so it is
hoped to arrange a second
match for Sunday also at Blue
Hill.
The Bahamas have picked a
powerful side to contest the
Cup and an interesting feature
will be the combination of
captain John Lively with
newcomer Dane Tutton at
centre.
Lively captained the
Bahamas' side in Trinidad

earlier this. season, while
Tutton, a Canadian who joined
Baillou this year has made a big
impact on New Providence
Rugby. He had an
exceptionally good game
against Lively in Freeport a
few weeks ago.
Nine of the selected
Bahamas' team played together
last weekend when a New
Providence side defeated the
visiting Harvard team 16-7.
A feature of this game was
the amount of possession
gained from the set scrums by
Hooker and Dennis Young, and
if the front row can repeat
anything like this form on
Saturday then the powerful
Bahamas backs should have
plenty of running chances.
It must be expected though,
that the Jamaican side will also
have plenty of strong, runners
and the back row of Jim
Banks, Peter Bizzell and Allan
Hallgate will have their work
cut out for them especially
from the set pieces.
The Bahamas' team: I.
Dallas, R. Adderley, D. Tutton
J. Lively, B. Dyer, V. Williams,
T. Dobbins, R. Lightbourne, D.
Young, R. Fryer, H. Adderley,
R. Bease, J. Banks. P. Bizzel.
and A. Hallgate.
