Provocative thoughts on hanging from Miss Bahamas--


In a challenging speech before West Nassau
Rotary Thursday Miss Bahamas broke
traditional ranks and threw out some
provocative thoughts on the controversial
subject of capital punishment.
Agatha Watson, 19, who said she was old
enough to appreciate the value and dignity of
human life, asked whether legalised murder was
any less a blot on our record (books) than child
labour, prostitution, or $13 a month for old age
pensioners?
The 5ft.5ins beauty from Long Island said
the Bahamas stood at a crossroads and "the
country must decide the direction in which we
want to head." She said we had upgraded our
schools, our streets, our laws and our manners
"yet there remains on our books that statute
which says that, without fail, a man must hang
for committing the crime of murder."
"Is this what we want?" she asked.
Describing capital punishment as a "grave
and soul searching topic" Miss Watson
contended that the question really dealt more
with human living than human dying.
"If we within ourselves being of sound mind
and understanding fully and gravity of what we

"The inclusion of the sixth

examination for places in Form
1. Therefore, the Common
Entrance Examination has
been discontinued and will not
be held in 1975.
"Beginning September,
1975, students will be
admitted to Government High
School at the end of the junior
high school stage.
"In order to ensure that
students who have started their
programmes at Government
High School, including those
selected to start in September.
1974, suffer no interruption in
their programmes, special care
will be taken to continue
existing programmes until all
of these students have left the
school."
Therefore, GHS's transition
from high school to senior high
school covering grades 10, 11
and 12 only will not be
complete until 1977.
The Common Entrance
Exam has been severely
criticised for years, particularly
by the Bahamas Teachers
Union, as irrelevant to
Bahamian needs and
discriminatory.
The BIS release said the


College of the Bahamas "will
formally come into existence
in the autumn of this year. The
forthcoming academic year will
entail detailed planning to
achieve the desired integration
of administration and
instruction, to serve more
effectively the needs of
students and the national
economy."
The existing programmes of
the four separate institutions
that will form the College "will
continue without major change
from the last academic year,
with a new curriculum being
introduced in September,
1975.
"It is intended that the
College of the Bahamas will
gradually assume responsibility
for the administration of the
colleges (two teachers' and one
technical) and the sixth form
of the GHS over the next
twelve months."
Students entering GHS's
sixth form this year to prepare
for Advanced Level General
Certificates of Education "will
be able to continue with the
second year of their sixth form
studies in 1975/76 at the
College of the Bahamas," the
release said.


Health parley cars

IT COST Government
$2,552.25 to rent 13 cars from
Kiki's Rentals Limited for the
transportation of delegates to
the Sixth Caribbean Health
Ministers' Conference on
Paradise Island recently, Health
Minister A. Loftus Roker
revealed in the House
Wednesday.
He was answering a question
tabled by Clarence Town M.P.
Michael Lightbourn, who had
also asked why Dr. Michael
Jukes was transferred from
Governor's Harbour to the
Princess Margaret Hospital.
"All medical officers are
transferrable," Mr. Roker
replied, "and it was considered
in the interest of both Dr.
Jukes and the Ministry that he
be transferred to Nassau."
Cyril Fountain (FNM-North
Long Island) had asked the
Minister to disclose whatever
"concrete plans" existed for
low-cost housing
developments.
Mr. Roker said plans

or that man must hang from a gallows for some
crime we feel he has committed against society,
then I say let's do it and forget about it.
"If, on the other hand, we are not certain
about exactly how we feel concerning the
matter, if there is the slightest hesitation in our
minds and in our hearts, if we lose a single
second of sleep over the matter, then I say woe
be unto he who puts a rope around a neck."
The poised and petite beauty asked
Rotarians if they might have a "reasonable
doubt" about the matter.
She said that man had invented great marvels
and had even expanded on some of God's
creations, "but there is one thing man has not
yet been able to do he cannot create a single
human life!"
"Many of us attempt to justify our feelings
by saying that we are making this country safe
for ourselves and our families, that we are
setting an example for all those others who feel
they can commit brutal crimes and escape the
extreme punishment," she said.
But she said that the truth of the matter was

he added.
He also said that
"negotiations between the

financing low-cost housing
have been finalised."
The bank earlier promised to
make $10 million available for
the purpose.

Turtle births


recorded


The Seafloor Aq .irtnm in
Chippingham last nigilt got its
first chance to raise in captivity
turtles actually born at the
aquarium, Seafloor chief Curtis
Johnson said today.
Mr. Johnson said the
aquarium has the facilities for
raising young turtles, but the
problem has been that as soon
as the young hatch from their
shells they quickly go to the
closest body of water water
inhabited by baby turtle
hungry fish.
But last night, Mr. Johnson
told the Tribune, an aquarium
staff member found four newly


hatched young

that the one thing had nothing to do with the
other. "When we decide to hang or not to hang,
that decision is based solely on our feelings
concerning the value and dignity of human life.
"Our concern for the society, for our
families, for ourselves, is an entirely different
matter," she contended.
Holding that we had "a sacred duty" to
protect ourselves and our families and the
community, she added "but by the same token
we have an even more scared responsibility to
protect our fellow man from the brunt of our
prejudices."
And she then asked Rotarians if they would
be less inclined to hang a man who had
murdered his wife in a fit of passion.
"Would you be less inclined to hang a priest,
a politician, a lawyer, doctor, Governor
General, or even the president of this club", she
added.
She then said that if she was to ask them that
question individually, they would reply with a
resounding yes, but deep down inside their
answer would be very guarded "No!"
Referring to convicted murders Wendell
Burrows and Philip Humes, Miss Watson said,


"On death row in Foxhill
Prison at this very moment
there are two young men
awaiting the executioner I do
j not know the men. I have
never met them, and I doubt
that I ever will."
Murder, she said, is a very
unforgiveable deed which in
her opinion was the deliberate
taking of another human life.
"In former times," she
continued, "hangings used to
take place at Malcolm's Park in
the public view. Today it takes
place at the Fox Hill Prison,
very early in the morning when
most of us are enjoying that
last hour of sleep. The jailer
summons the prisoner out of
bed and serves him a good
breakfast anything he wants
to eat."
In the background is a priest
with a battered black book,
praying constantly, trying
somehow, to yank the soul of
" "gJ' the prisoner from the jaws of
Satan and into the forgiving
arms of Jesus, she said.
The entire prison at this
time has a deathly silence
>* about it because every single
prisoner is aware of the
hanging to take place. Many
refuse breakfast, and some
actually kneel and pray for the
soul of their criminal brother
soon to be offered up on a
sacramental altar which is
shaped like a gallows.

The youngsters were laid by

The female turtles are known
to have laid young in the

never been found in time to
save them from the fish.

PDP charge PLP



with years



of empty rule'


By Sidney Dorsett
THE PEOPLES' Democratic
Party today accused
Government with failing to
provide sufficient employment
opportunities for Bahamians
and further charged, in a press
statement issued today, that
events lead to the belief that
Government has deliberately
calculated a plan "to bring
utmost poverty on our
people."
The political group also
claimed that the Bahamian
constitutional system "is
designed to oppress rather than
liberate" as it was inherited
from the colonialist era.
It is a system that legalises
lawlessness but has not been
replaced by a more democratic
systeri as our present
Government leaders are men
who have themselves been
trained in the British system of
Government.
"Any future government led
by British trained lawyers will
and can only further
perpetuate colonialism," the
PDP asserted.
The P.D.P. statement, calling
for a more democratic system
than the present which has
"legalised official lawlessness
and created situations allowing
government to become
detached from the people,"
also claimed that the Bahamas
is being taken "down lanes of
uncertainty and misguided
decisions."
"Many untruths are being
told" leaving the average
Bahamian just as ignorant to
the intentions of Government
as he was in the days of the
former government.
The P.D.P. release also
struck out against "the plight
of senior citizens" which they
charged has not been bettered
with the increased cost of
living and the narrowing of the
rights of the individual.
It said that the people must
not permit themselves to
become satisfied with the
promised plans and
programmes which seem to "be
coming after all the empty


years of P.D.P. rule. The senior
citizens "are in a worse 'way
than before," it stated.
The P.D.P. a carry-over from
the Peoples Positive Action
Committee which protested
the enactment of the
Emergency Powers Act during
its debate in the House of
Assembly last month, also
asserted that the right of the
individual is being narrowed.
"The rights of the individual
... that should be an operative
part of our constitution is
being narrowed by the
action of selfish and
vindictive politicians, the
people of this country should
demand a change," the P.D.P.
said.
The release also said that too
many people are without
adequate homes and jobs, "two
of the root elements promised
after independence."
And a large percentage of
our people are living in
substandard and dilapidated
homes it said, declaring that
"in the Family Islands the
conditions today are as
deplorable, if not worse than in
the days of the U.B.P.
The P.D.P. suggested that
positions such as Family Island
Corn missioners, Senators,
Police Commissioner and other
leading executive (posts)
should be made "elective and
not selective."
"The election process can
make the positions more in
keeping with the democratic
principles and reduce the
power of the few over the
many," the release stated.
It also charged Government
with being non-productive and
said that economic and social
conditions can only become
worse under the P.L.P.
"The government have failed
to afford the opportunity for
men to provide for themselves,
to support their families, to
contribute to their
communities and this
has become in a sense the
cruelest problem -
unemployment," the P.D.P.
release concluded.


Terms asked for $20m. loan
OPPOSITION M.P. Norman Solomon this week asked
Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Arthur D.
Hanna for a "comprehensive statement showing all the
terms and conditions of the loan which was approved for
the recent purchase by Government of three Cable Beach
hotel properties."
He has also asked whether the loan is being supplied
entirely by the Bank of Nova Scotia and, if not, what other
individuals or corporate entities are involved, and to what
extent.

Govt. refuse to give reason

Darrell E. Rolle has bluntly
refused to say why Dr. John
Hospers, an American, was
refused permission to land at
Treasure Cay, Abaco in May.
Dr. Hospers has been

No reciprocal

THE Bahamas Government
did not negotiate for a
reciprocal route for a
Bahamian airline when the
Brussels-Nassau route was
awarded to Sabena, the Belgian
national airline, Tourism, and
Aviation Minister Clement T.
Maynard revealed in the House
Wednesday.
The disclosure, coming in
response to questions by
Crooked Island M.P. Cyril
Tynes, was a surprise for two
reasons:
(1) The Government's
ability to negotiate reciprocity
in international air transport
was a decided advantage of
becoming Independent that the
pro-independence PLP referred
to often during the 1972
general elections;
(2) The Air Transport
Licensing Authority has in fact
this week gra.ited Bahamas
World Airlines a licence to fly
three times a week between
Nassau and Brussels. It was not
known whether Belgian
authorities ihad issued the
appropriate licerce there.

conference organised by the
Abaco separatists. But when
he arrived at Treasure Cay
Immigration Officials denied
permission for him to
disembark from the aircraft.
The incident sparked
questions from Clarence
Town M. P. Michael Light-
bourn, who wanted to know
why Dr. Hospers was barred
and on whose instructions.
The Clarence Town
Independent also wanted to
know whether Dr. Hospers
was on the Immigration Stop
List, and, if not, what
classification he came under
that resulted in denial of
permission to enter the
country.
Mr. Rolle replied: "No,
sir," he would not my why
Dr. Hospers was barred, and
that the question of who
ordered the barring "does not
arise," that Dr. Hospers was
not on the Stop List, and that
the question of whether he
came under some similar
classification alho "does not
arise."

ATROCITIES
CLAIM BY
RHODESIAN

CHURCHMEN
SALISBURY, Rhodesia A
group of Rhodesian church
leaders have charged that local
security forces committed
recent atrocities that resulted
in three deaths and two
suicides.
The Ministry of Law and
Order said the allegations
would be investigated if those
concerned were properly
identified. But the churchmen
said they have withheld dates,
names and places of the
incidents because they fear
reprisals.
The Ministry spokesman said
that from an initial
examination of the report,
three cases could be positively
identified and that
investigations showed the
"allegations of ill treatment
have not been substantiated."
A letter accompanying the
churchmen's document was
signed by three Anglican and
three Roman Catholic bishops,
the Roman Catholic
Ai .'-bishop of Salisbury and
two leaders of the Methodist
church.
Among the atrocities cited
was the case of a 56-year-old
man who "was beaten across
his body and on his limbs with
sticks and boots ... hung by the
feet and beaten ... burned on
his abdomen with what was
probably an electric probe."
In another case, the
churchman said, a 32-year-old
man with six children was
quoted as saying he had been
tied up and tortured with
electrical shocks six times.
Another man, about 45
years old, died from internal
injuries after being beaten with
sticks and kicked in the chest
and abdomen, according to the
allegations.
FOOT DRAG
BRII ISH doctors have
diagnosed a condition known
as foot drag caused by the
prolonged crossing of the legs
which is common among
guitar players. A weak leg
muscle can result, causing the
drag, says the nedicdal
magazine "Pulse".


Syria goes on war alert


Move follows Israeli

'military exercises'

BEIRUT, Lebanon Syria was reported oday to
have placed its armed forces ,'n or: t, counter Israeli
military moves.
The pro-Palestinian Guerrilla newspaper Al Moharrer said the
Syrian move followed recent Israeli official statements that


reservists would be called up
Israeli "military exercises."
The paper gave no source for
its report and officials in
Damascus had no immediate
comment.
The paper said the reported
Syrian alert order reflected the
seriousness with which the
Syrian government view Israeli
intentions.
The Damascus Press has
recently been warning Syrian
citizens that Israel is preparing
for a new military venture
against neighboring Arab
countries.
Premier Mahmoud Ayoubi
told a Palestinian workers
congress in Damascus Thursday
that Israel had begun
mobilizing its forces and had
increased "provacations"
through official statements.
He said Israel was trying to
hide its "real intentions of
launching new aggression"
against Syria.
U. S. Secretary of state
Henry Kissinger intends to
make a new tour of the Middle
East in October to try to speed
along a peace settlement
between the Arabs and Israel,
the semi-official newspaper Al
Ahram said today.
It quoted diplomatic sources
in Washington as saying
Kissinger would begin the trip
after concluding his current
round of talks with
representatives of both sides.
Kissinger was conferring
today with Syrian foreign
Minister Abdel Halim
Khaddam. Earlier this month,
he saw King Hussein of Jordan
and Egyptian Foreign Minister
Ismail Fahmy.
Al Ahram said Kissinger
would hold talks in Washington
next month with Israeli
Premier Yitzak Rabin "despite
the uproar Israel raised about
Kissinger's alleged premature
announcement of the trip."
Fahmy returned to Cairo
last night where he was
welcomed at the airport by
Egyptian officials and U.S.
Ambassador Hermann Eilts.
Fanhmy will report to President
Anwar Sadat on his talks in
Washington Algeria and
France, Al Ahram said.

Russia calls for


talks on Cyprus


MOSCOW The Soviet
Government called Thursday
for the convening of an
international conference to
solve the Cyprus problem.
The Soviets said their
proposed conference should be
attended by the five permanent
members of the U.N. Security
Council as tell as Greece,
Turkey and Cyprus.
The Soviet government
statement, distributed by Tass.
stressed that the big five on the
security council including
Russia had "special
responsibilities."
Today, the Soviet Union
hotly condemned what it
called Nato's 'open aggression'
against Cyprus and repeated its
call for the withdrawal of all
foreign troops from the island.
From the columns of
l'ravda a senior foreign affairs
commentator belittled the
1960 agreement by Britain.
Greece and Turkey to
guarantee the independence
and sovereignty of Cyprus.
Cominmentator Viktor
Mayevsky said this accord 'was
used only as a smokescreen for
direct Nato interference in the
internal ailairs of the sovereign
0 -m


republic of Cyprus.'
"Life has once again shown
the aggressive character of the
Nato military bloc, which in an
attempt to consolidate its
positions in the Mediterranean
has launched open aggression
against the Cypriot people," he
said.
"The Soviet Union
resolutely condemns the
interference of Nato in the
internal affairs of Cyprus and
holds that the decisions of the
U.N. Security Council on
Cyprus must be implemented
without delay.
"It is necessary that all
foreign troops be withdrawn
from the island," Mayevsky
added.

Airports'

security

'grossly

inadequate'
WASHINGTON U.S.
Government investigators have
found "grossly inadequate"
security at eight foreign
airports, syndicated columnist
Jack Anderson reports.
Anderson said results of the
secret survey, conducted from
June until early this month,
were obtained from New York
Congressman John Murphy,
sponsor of a new anti-hijacking
law.
Anderson said undercover
investigators from the Federal
Aviation Administration found
security against potential air
terrorists most lax at Beirut,
Bangkok, Brussels, Buenos
Aires, Copenhagen, London,
Rome and New Delhi.
The columnist quoted
these excerpts from the report:
Beirut: "Arab terrorists
continue to use Lebanon as a
haven for murderers, hijackers
and terrorists ... the Lebanese
government affords them
freedom of movement (and)
diplomatic immunity ... there
is no appreciation by security
personnel at the airport of the
dimensions of the security
threat posed by potential
terrorists."
London-Heathrow: "The
English are very bullheaded
and have refused to institute
proper security measures."
New Delhi: "Very poor
screening. No officers around
parked aircraft ... the low pace
of the Indian police (means) a
resolution of these problems
will not take place for some
time."
Bangkok: "Security is poor
to non-existent ... there are
unscreened passengers in the
ramp areas when ... flights are
boarding."
Brussels: "Security is very
poor and spotty. This is
dangerous in view of the fact
the Brussels airport has been
the focal point of terrorist
movement of weapons ...
weapons, bombs, etc., could
easily be transferred to
passengers ..."
Rome: "After the Dec. 17,
1973, commando-style
firebombing of a Pan Am flight
in which 32 persons were killed
the Rome airport security
improved ... improvement was
only temporary ... very poor
search procedures ... the metal
detectors were obviously
inoperative..."
Copenhagen: "Security is
almost non-existent."

Nixon 'directed


Watergate


cover-up


WASHINGTON The U.S.
House of Representatives
Judiciary Committee, in the
final report on its
impeachment inquiry, found
former President Richard
Nixon in violation of criminal
laws, his oath of office and the
constitution.
The report, made public
Thursday, concludes that
Nixon directed the Watergate
cover-up, abused his powers by
authorizing illegal wiretaps and
interfering with executive
agencies, and attempted to
undermine the impeachment
process by defying subpoenas
for evidence.
In addition, it states that on
22 occasions, Nixon made false
and misleading statements on
Watergate "as part of a
deliberate, contrived,
continued deception of the
American people."
The report was intended to
be the centrepriece of an


historical House debate on
three articles of impeachment
approved last month by the
judiciary committee.
But on Aug. 9 Nixon
resigned, advised by
Republican Congressional
leaders that impeachment by
the House and conviction and
removal. from office by the
Senate were inevitable. His
resignation left the report as
the final statement of the
impeachment drama.
The 523-page document
contains a description of the
Watergate break-in and
cover up with specific acts
pointing to Nixon's
involvement, which forms the
basis for the first article of
impeachment.
The document also contains
arguments and evidence in
support of the other two
articles, and separate and
dissenting views by committee
members. (AP)


Court of

WASHINGTON The U.S.
court of Appeal Thursday
suggested, but did not order,
that the Watergate cover-up
trial involving several top
lieutenants of former President
Richard Nixon be delayed at
least three weeks.
The trial is scheduled to
begin September 9 before U.S.
district Judge John J. Sirica.
Sirica had refused on
Monday to grant a delay
requested by defence lawyers
and the Watergate special
prosecutor's office.
Defendants in the case
include White House Domestic
Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman;
former White House Domestic
Counselor John D. Ehrlichman
and former Attorney General
John Mitchell.
While the Circuit Court
ruling does not order Sirica to
postpone the trial, it was a
strong hint- that any*verdict
which might come out of the
case might be reversed on post
trial appeal if he does not.
Attorneys for the six
defendants in the case had
asked for a delay at least until
the first of the year because of
the widespread publicity


Appeals
surrounding impeachment
proceedings against Nixon and
his ultimate resignation from
office.
The defendants also said
they needed more time to
prepare their cases, because of
a huge volume of White House
tapes which have been
subpoenaed for the trial.
The tapes, which the
Supreme Court ordered Nixon
to release to the special pro-
secutor, are still being
processed and delivered to the
various lawyers after screening
by Sirica, with only two weeks
left before the scheduled start
of the trial.
The Court of Appeals
appeared to agree with Sirica
that the publicity situation did
not warrant a lengthy delay.
But it indicated some
sympathy for the difficulty
faced by the lawyers in
prepari#gor trail.
"We suggest to the district
judge that a continuance for
further trial preparation by all
parties of perhaps three to four
weeks would be appropriate in
the case," the Appeals court
said in its unsigned opinion.

EDITORIAL


How history is mode

By LTIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the sLvth article in a series I am writing on world
figure' iwho hare passed across my horizon, some of whom have
played an important role in shaping the history of the Bahamas.)
GRANI) CAYMAN, July 25. The U.B.P. feared the next
generall election. That was in 1962. We went into this campaign
together. And they won handsomely.
I was not a candidate. I had withdrawn completely from active
politics. After this contest Sir Stafford Sands and other
mebenhcrs of the party told me that they could not have done it
without T77e Tribune. Indeed, some of them were generous
enough to say that The Tribune had won the election for them.

I hlie .B.I',. then decided that they might have greater control
over the country if they moved up from a Representative form of
governmentt that, for over two centuries, had given them almost
complete control over the country's affairs but also shared some
iiuthorit with ler Majesty's governor ... to Responsible Cabinet
goveeinientl in which they would exercise absolute control
without any guidance or restraint from the highly experienced
"itn ont the hill".
Bt, then Sitr IRayin Arthur had appointed me to the Legislative
Council (Senate). I advised against changing the constitution. I
said then ... and repeat today ... that the old constitution was
pe I I(, or colony the site of the Bahamas. Under it the people
citjy.(! ;alm',iost absolute power. But there was a point at which
th hi rotdetr e\lpiience of Britain came into the picture. And it
wajs ;i this point that their affairs of the colony were kept on :mn
cvit kueel
thy tn I licy wanted more power and they thought that
Cabinet g-ovtenlinent was what they required to get a firmer grip
on tle ctumtry ind turn back the threat of the P.L.P. which
ieptrsceu'd Black 'Power in its worst form.
A delegation was nominated to go to England to draft a new
t'onstitutitoi. I w,.,s not included. The Hon. Leonard Knowles,
now 'hicf lJisticc aiid a Knight, was included in the group from
the Legislativ, ('ouCo41.l
Ihis disturbed U.B'P. leaders. They wanted me. They were
Iflaid ol the Il .1P. bringing back false reports from the
oillteiieCCe arid thev wanted me there because they knew I would
expose in 77)c Tribune any false reports that might be spread.
I heir lear was juslfied. Once before the P.L.P. had done this
'to Sir Raiynor Arlhtir in connection with a delegation that went
to loI don and I had exposed them. This was one of the things
ill.,i had made Ij.B.P. leaders realize that I was a reformist and
.ii ot i revolutionary, concerned only with the truth and fairplay
"fo all.
It was finally arranged that I should go as a delegate to
London and that Leonard Knowles should act as Legal Adviser
S(,or the legislative Council. My brother Eugene was also a
Sdelegate', so that we constituted one-tenth of this important
Smision to ontidjt.


SNorinally the Secretary of State for the Colonies would have
: presided over this conference. But he was then somewhere in the
F* ast at ainothie troubled spot. I think it was in Africa. And so the
discussions were opened by Nigel Fisher (now Sir Nigel),
hParliamentary I sndersecietary of State for the Colonies. With him
was ti' Pe rmanient I 'ndersecretarvy i:. the Colonial Office. He was
i knight bIt hie hIad a French name and I have forgotten it.
The dayv can' lor speeches. The U.B.P. majority party in the
HI house, tlic P.I.P. minority party and the Legislative Council,
each had a tliiiu at presenting their views to the meeting. Our
group noiuiniated Sir George Roberts, President, and the Hon.
Guodirey Higgs, Vice President of Leg. Co., to speak on our
behalf.
As the iceetinr,, progressed I could hold myself no longer. I
.isked leave to speak. Nigel Fisher granted me leave and I spoke
extemiporaneouslly on my concept of sound government for the
'ailhaulias.
When I sat down Roberts. Higgs and my brother leaned across
thie table and congratulated me. "1 don't know how you did it,
I tiurene," Sir George remarked.
didn't know how I did it myself because I don't like public
speaking. I have to do a lot of it but I avoid it whenever I can.
S'citainly I had held tlie attention of the meeting. especially Nigel
I ishce and olthei representatives from the Colonial Office.

Lip to Ihat tinle I was only one in a number at the conference.
Immediately after the nmecting Nigel Fisher came up and talked
with me. This started a warm and enduring friendship. Hie told me
that lih agreed with what I had said but he could never get my
proposal through the House of Commons which was then
supporting any movement for greater control by Colonial
peoples.
IhMat evening I had a call from Sir Alan Burns. Hie said the
Permanent Undersecretary wanted to meet me. And so he had us
toi lunch at his club the next day. We had a good talk at this
luncheon ... the first and the last with this secretary ... but Nigel
Fisher often talked with me after that.

\t that ttie the Conservative government of Harold MacMillan
was in trouble. They were in the midst of the Profumo scandal
witlta general election coming up.
A few days before the election I received a note from Nigel
SIisher. I IHe told me that the last thing he did before leaving the
Colonial Office was to put my name up for a knighthood. He
added that, even if the Conservatives lost the election, it would go
through because by then it would be too far advanced for any
changes to be made.
The Conservatives lost.
******* *
One day the late Margaret de Gregory came to my office. She
%was the wife of Dr., Ricardo de Gregory, a charming English
o woman. She met me in the reception hall and I invited her to
S come into my office.
"No, i can't," she said, "I'm in a hurry but the Governor
-wanted me to put this letter right into your hands. It's good
news."



-SMEARED


Editor, The Tribune,
Kindly allocate me space in
your reputable newspaper to
express my political views on a
subject that is of special
concern to me.
One of the most outstanding
commands in the divine
decalogue admonishes us to
have no gods before the God of
Heaven and Earth. What that
command is saying in effect is
that we should not place any
event, organisation or earthly
being above the divine laws of
the all-wise God.
This writer believes it to be
within the realms of reality to
assert that the P.L.P. Ihas
become a religious element in
many households. It has
reached such unthinkable
magnitude that many fractions
of the nation's populace
bestow reverential sanctity to
the leader of the said party.
it is unfortunate that
supposedly sane individuals
will allow their love and
dedication to a political party
to smother their ability to


reason, their constitutional
rights to "call a spade a spade."
and their minds to become
blanketed to such an extent,
their consciences are drowned
with nothing but sheer fantasy
and empty promises.
On numerous occasions, I
have heard persons mingling
God's name with vulgar and
profane language. To some
supporters of the incumbent
governing party, such practices
are apparently not as
deplorable as a citizen of the
Bahamas calling Pindling a
political scoundrel.
I am of the irrevocable
opinion that a person's
conscience should supersede
elements of emotionalism,
undue sensation and any such
thing:
If P.L.P. supporters, after
careful consideration, feel that
the country is being properly
governed, they should embrace
every opportunity to let the
people of the country hear
their reasons. On the other
hand, if supporters are


LITTLE TIN GODS


EDITOR The Tribune,
I have just put down the
latest edition of the "Time"
magazine where I was reading
an article on the political
tragedy of former President
Richard M. Nixon entitled:
"The Downfall from the
Highes. Mountaintop". It is so
strange how seemingly
intelligent individuals fail to
learn from the study of history
and admonition of the Holy
Bible that those who disregard
the Truth and persistently
ignore the virtues of honesty
finally destroy themselves in
the hop-scot pursuit of driving
ambitions to satisfy the vanity
of inflating their own ego.
The present condition of our
co untry today aptly
demonstrates the performances
of little tin gods w\ho are in this
same category of destroying
themselves due to their failure
of persistently ignoring the


ancient virtues of honesty and
the indestructible force, Truth.
Time is the caring process for
all 'cover-up' and the Bahamian
Watergate will burst its
seemingly secured flood gates
in the near future, drowning,
.sweeping into public disgrace
and finally obscurity many of
today's little tin gods from
their mountain tops.
Sir Etienne, continue to
speak the Truth clearly and
firmly via the valuable pages of
The Tribune ... it is an
inspiration to the children of
honesty and lovers of Truth.
The efforts of our
determination has never gone
unrewarded from the dawn of
human history ... because what
we seek in our humble way is
to speak the truth and expose
the nakedness of its opponents.

This is to thank you for
your efforts in getting The

The papers are arriving in

late. To show what I mean, the
latest arrivals were on Friday
last, August 16Ith. and the most
recent issue of The Tribune to
be included in that lot was
August 2nd or 3rd., as I
remember glancing through
them that day.
This is of no use to me and
probably absorbs other time
which you could more usefully
employ. The latest at which it

If, drunk with sight of power, we loose
Wild tongues that have not Thee in awe,
Such boastings as the Gentiles use,
Or lesser breeds with one the law. KIPLING.


convinced that Pindling and his
crew are doing a poor job, they
should regard it as their solemn
duty and obligation to muster
sufficient maturity to admit
that most promises made by
the government are bottomless
and that the way ahead seems
grim indeed.
I maintain that no
intentional wrong-doing should
be left unchallenged.
Therefore, if the most ardent
P.L.P. supporter senses the
infidelity and incompetence in
his party, it would be to the
country's advantage that he
openly condemns the
government.
Who can deny the fact that
the P.L.P. has placed
nationality above ability;
personal greed above empathy;
intolerence above patience:
spite above pardon; petty
politics above dignity; Square


Deal Clubbers above the masses
of people and dominance
above requests? If honesty
abounds within each heart, no
one will deny that the
government is guilty of all thl.
aforementioned.
God, in his goodness and
kindness has given to all men
an inner voice that tells us
what to do and what not to do.
A ny tine we allow
e motionalism or cheap
popularity to stifle that voice,
something is terribly wrong.
Whereas the advent (to
power) of the P.L.P. served as a
,saviour to many Bahamians.

s people be people.
At Settlers you can relax
and be yourself. Chippie is too
much at home with the rich,
successful and famous to
t regard them as anything else
than just people.
Here the rich and famous
and just ordinary every day
people who also have
pressures can let their hair
down, let off steam and be
themselves without any
concern about keeping up a
front.
Chippie who describes
himself as "high on life"
projects the joy of life and
energy of a simpler and more
rambunctious age.
An integral part of the good
life to be pursued at Chippie's
is food.
The Settlers' serve fresh
seafoods, steaks and chops
with peas 'n. rice and salad
from nine until four in the
morning. The kitchen is
presided over by
Eleutheran-born Chef George
Sands. Of food and his inn
Chippie says "I dreamed of a
place like this as a boy where I
could express all the lovely
dishes I had as a boy in
Grants Town"
So why not step out of the
rat race of today and go and
buy a slice of life at Settlers?

Control of Trumps
THE PLAYER who is not too the next thing to do is to draw
r out of the beginner stage trumps. He might be
as little difficulty with those comforted by the knowledge
hands where the obvious that the world champions
mediate need is to draw would do exactly the same. Ile
rumps. Such a player also has eventually to give up a
nows enough to suspend the Spade trick, and makes the
drawing of trumps where one contract. It never occurs to
r more of dummy's trumps him to play some Diamonds
ave to be used first. But there first, and if it did occur to him,
Sa third category of hands he would be well advised to
usually 2-suiters where all take up sculpture instead.
iems misty and hard to cope Now let's take a look at the
th. second category of hands:

to hold the trick. West knows
without much doubt that the
King of Diamonds is on his
right, and he guesses also that
the 10 was a singleton.
Our near beginner is not
likely to go wrong here. He will
see that if he attacks trumps
straight away, he might well
get his Ace of Diamonds
ruffed, and also that he has no
obvious way to dispose of his
Spade losers. Again, his likely
sequence of plays is that which
would be chosen be the nature
expert.
He plays the Ace of Spades,
ruffs a Spade in dummy, gets
back to his own hand, via the
King of Clubs, and ruffs
another Spade with dummy's
last trump. Now he plays the
Ace of Clubs and is able to
discard his last Spade. So far,
so good. He now needs just a
little luck to land his contract.
If he Can ruff himself back to
his own hand with a club
without being over-ruffed and
bash out his top Heart, he
stands a very good chance of
getting home, even though he
may lose his Ace of Diamonds
in the process.
So the immediate drawing of
trumps when necessary, and
the deliberate delay is drawing
them when obligatory, present
no special problems to most
newly-fledged players. But the
third category is troublesome,
and needs extra careful
planning. Here is a case where
quite experienced players are
apt to go wrong:

On Foods


By LELORD KORDEL
Number 21 of a Series
Could this be you? Are you
tired when you wake up in the
morning, exhausted by the time
you get to work, wondering by
noon how you'll ever make it
through the day?
Is your fatigue of such dura-
tion that you're beginning to
wonder if you were literally
born tired?
How did you get this way?
What happened to your zest for
living, your drive, your dreams
of accomplishment? What hap-
pened to you?
Chronic fatigue is not nor-
mal. Neither is disease. But
your low N.Q., or nutrition quo-
tient, can make them so.
Roland H. Berg, in discussing
the socio-economic factors
affecting medical care,
deplored the state of our health.
"We have been winning the
battle against acute diseases," he
said, "but losing the war against
chronic killers."
The mortality rate for the
largely preventable chronic dis-
eases continues to mount. We
have the scientific knowledge
to ward off many of the crippl-
ing chronic diseases and the sud-
den deaths from heart attacks,
but we don't use it.


Hidden Hunger
You've heard of hidden hun-
ger. "Sure," you say, "but I eat
three good meals a day, not to
mention the coffee breaks. That
couldn't apply to me."
Couldn't it? How much do
your meals contribute in the
way of protein, vitamins, and
minerals?
Do you know what your body
actually needs to withstand the
stress and strain of everyday liv-
ing, to build up tissues, and to
avoid nutritional deficiencies?
The costs of high mortality
have become too great for insur-
ance companies. Consequently
they are preaching health
consciousness.
Dr. Tom Spies believed that
"The use of nutrients to replen-
ish the tissues and to prevent dis-
ease is the physician's primary
problem.
"Ile knows that the nutrients
nimust be supplied to the body
from the outside.
"No statistics can determine

Pregnant gals ?
MIAMI BEACH. FLORIDA
An expert on nutrition and
obstetrics says the current
pregnancy diet fad may be one
reason why the infant morality
rate is higher in the United
States than in several European
countries.
Dr. Howard N. Jacobson
said the average woman should
gain about 24 pounds during
pregnancy.

You Eat Today

Robert Cummings enjoys his
F IOR MUL AFOULI life, his work, and his accom- i
plishments, which are many and I
0IH varied. His excellent care of I
OTEIN himself has paid off in the good
ODS health which makes all this
. possible.
rAMINS A Few Simple Rules
D .'..


the loss, and no words can de-
scribe the waste, when phy-
sicians do not ineet this
challenge, head on."
Why Be Half-Alive?
Why should you settle for a
second-rate self? Why be only
half-alive, low in energy and
spirits, losing confidence in
yourself and your future?
Trade neglect for know-how,
and come over to the
nutritionally safe side of life.
A famous doctor of the Holly-
wood stars said recently: "Mo-
tion picture stars are the health-
iest people in the world. Even
the old ones are vigorous, firm
and pink-cheeked. They eat the
best food-and less of itl-than
anyone else."
They also take vitamin-and-
mineral supplements.
Formula For Youth
Robert Cummings, the
motion picture and television
star, shares with us his formula
for youth, energy, and vitality.
Mr. Cummings, well over 65. is
young, handsome, and vigor-
ous. Hie says: "I take good care
of myself."
Among other things, includ-
ing exercise, concentrated vita-
min-and-mineral supplements,
and a high-protein diet-Mr.
Cummings takes lecithin gran-
ules three times a day.
"The amount of food eaten
has nothing to do with good
nutrition," insists Mr. Cuin-
mings. "It is the kinds of food
that matter. Nutritional de-
ficiencies are apt to increase as
we grow older. They can be a
primary source of the health
problems many experience in
later years."

Then don't diet
Even that allows "only a
slight margin for safety" if the
baby weighs about 7/2 pounds,
Jacobson told the western
hemisphere nutrition congress.
Most obstetricians
recommend limiting weight
gain during pregnancy to 18 to
20 pounds.
That is less than the weight
represented by the fetus,
placenta, increased blood
volume, and breast tissue,
Jacobson said.
If a -woman gains less than
20!/ pounds, she's
"cannibalizing" herself during
pregnancy and exposing the
baby to a variety of
unnecessary risks, he said.
He said European women
expect to put on weight when
a baby is due, and only half as
many low-weight babies (about
five pounds) are born in
Sweden, for example, as in the
United States.
Jacobson said the weight
gain during pregnancy should
be gradual, reaching five
pounds by the 1 2th week and
15 pounds at the end of the
24th week.
"This is a period when a
woman needs expert dietary
counseling and that can be
hard to get from an
obstetrician who sees her for
only a couple of minutes at a
time," Jacobson said. (AP)

8 _________ _____THE TRIBUNE - Friday, August 23,1974


James Peterson.........most
consistent on tour.


SOUTHERNERS Cricket Club's
young wicketkeeper James Peterson
was named the most consistent player
on the recently ended Commonwealth
Wanderers tour of Canada and New
York.
Playing and integral part in the
Wanderers' four wins and two draws
from eight matches played, Peterson,
besides holding his own in his usual
spot totalled 235 runs that included a
match high of 78.
'Peterson was really the star of the
tour," commented skipper Horace


Kingston. "He performed like a true
veteran."
George Ferguson, another of the
Southerners' productions captured the
bowling honours. He took a total of
18 wickets at the cost of 7.88 runs
each. He was especially outstanding in
"the Wanderers' draw with the
American Cricket League all-stars. He
took eight for 42 in 10.3 overs.
Backing him up in fine style was lrv
Armstrong who gave up 8.72 runs for
each of his 11 wickets, and Francis
Scott and Kingston who got 10 each.


Leaving New Providence on July 31,
the Wanderers travelled to Ontario
where they beat the host side in three
matches to win the Bank of Nova
Scotia trophy.
In the first match against the
Commonwealth of Windsor, the
Wanderers led by Horace Stuart's 34
and Ralph Kellman's 23 took a inning
and six run victory. The visitors in
reply to Windsor's 57 all out put up
150 runs for six declared. Windsor in
the second inning were 87 for nine.
Ferguson and vice skipper Edmund
Lewis shared the bowling honours

Johnson got into real trouble.
He walked Batelco's first three
batters Catcher Winston

Keith Archer and third sacker
Sonny Haven.
However, Johnson struck
out first baseman Anthony
Weech for the first out.
Left fielder Lester Gardiner
collected an rbi on a fielders
choice play, as he scored
Sherman all the way from third
on a force out attempt that got
Haven. Charlie Mortimer was
the third out of the inning as
he flied out to right field.
The business men did not let
this botherthem. They jumped
on Mortimer for four hits
including two triples from
catcher Crestwall Pratt and
first baseman Rodney Johnson
to plate three runs and jumped
ahead 3-1. Johnson and short
stop Herbert Johnson both
collected rbi's in the inning.
BaTelCo failed to score in
their half of the second inning.
Johnson struck out two in that
inning, while catcher Crestwell
Pratt cut down speedy base
runner Freddie Gibson for the
third out Gibson was hit by a
pitch.
IBM was held scoreless for
five complete innings, and
limited to just two. These two
hits came from first baseman
Rodney Johnson in the third
and Stephen Coakley in the
fourth.
BaTelCo scored one run on
two hits in the third, two runs
on one hit in the fourth
including Charlie Mortimer's"
solo blast and one run on one
hit in the fifth before icing
their victory on two runs on
one hit in the last inning.
IBM tried for the last time in
their half of the seventh. They
sent five batters to the plate
thus scoring one run on two
hits.
IBM out hit BaTel(' 8-0.


Winning pitcher Charlie Mortimer is greeted by IBM's third base coach Alfred Maycock and
teammates after his 7-4 victory over International Business Machine last night.


England attack caned


LONDON Zahtcr Abbas
made a brilliant 118 not out
and Majid Khan missed a
century by two runs as
Pakistan flogged the English
attack in the third cricket test
match at the Oval yesterday.
At the end of a day of
unbroken sunshine, perfect for
batting, Pakistan had made 317
for 2. It was the best start
made so far by either team in
the series, the first two games
of which were drawn.
Mushtaq Mohammad was 67
not out at close of play. lie
and Zaheer have added 151
runs for the third wicket.
Intikhab Alam won the toss
for Pakistan, and it was an
important first stroke. For the
first time the Pakistanis batted
on a firm wicket anJ in the hot
conditions they are used to.
And they have three leg
spinners in the team to take
advantage of a dry, dusty
wicket in the later stages of the
five-day match.
I'ngland's pace bowlers
could get no pace from the


wicket, and Pakistan attacked
from the start. Majid and Sadiq
Mohammed hit 64 runs in the
first hour.
Two balls later, a bad ball
from Bob Willis broke the
partnership. He sent down a
long hop and Sadiq, who had
made 21, hooked him high
to the leg boundary and was
caught by Chris Old.
Summarized Scores:
At Scarborough. Kent 279 for 8
closed and 83 for 2. Yorkshire 257

Division 2

gets the

glamour
LONDON Watch out for
the big boys down in the
Second Division of the English
soccer league. The spotlight is
on Manchester United and
Southampton.
The fans will be paying more
attention than usual to the
Second Division, with these
two teams in contention.
Manchester United is one of
the world's most famous clubs,
which won the European Cup
of Champions six years ago.
Southampton has two of
England's finest strikers, Peter
Osgood and Mike Channon, in
its attack.
Last year soccer
administrators tried to brighten
the game by having three teams
go up to the First Division and
three drop to the second,
instead of two as in the past.
Southampton finished four
points ahead of Manchester
United and seven points ahead
of Norwich, but had to go
down with them under the new
rule.
Manchester United started the
season with a 2-0 away
victory over Orient Saturday.
Southampton drew 3-3 at
home to Hull City, and Osgood
scored one goal.
Only one man goalkeeper
Alex Stepney is left at
Manchester United from the
team that won the European
Cup six years ago.
But United is still a great
name wherever it goes. It has
Scottish internationals Jim
Holton, Martin Buchan and
Willie Morgan in its ranks.
Manchester United is playing
in the Second Division for the
first time for 36 years.


EX-PROS BARRED


FROM 'OLYMPIC'


FORMER professionals who
will be reinstated during the
upcoming Bahamas Amateur
Basketball association's series,
will not be allowed to compete
in games sanctioned by the
Olympic Committee.
"Former professional players
under special circumstances
may play, but they cannot play
in any international game on
the Olympic level or games
sponsored by any branch of
the Olympic Committee -
regional games," B.A.B.A.
president Vince Ferguson
affirmed.
They may play locally for
a club and if that club travels
abroad, they may play also
against some other club, but
not in any tournament of game
sanctioned by the 0. C."
During their National
Convention earlier this year,
the B.A.B.A, decided to adopt
totally the reinstatement rules
and provisions of the
International Federation of
Amateur basketball. These Mr.
Ferguson said, were not as
stringent as those of the 0. C.
Speaking last night on Kirk
Smith's "Sportline," the
president later admitted
though that the process
involves the athlete having to.


GAMES
meet several criteria.
Athletes eligible are those
who j(a) signed for and played
with a professional club for no
less than one year prior to their
reaching the age of 23 years.
(b) having withdrawn from
professional ball, were engaged
in a recognisable profession for
a year (c) those who have been
married, (d) those who have
suffered from a severe disease.
or having been the victim of
some incapacitating accident.
However, there has been no
final decision on the fate of
suspended ball players or
those who competed in the

JUDITH MILLER
"Girl Friday"


AS PRETTY as a picture, as busy as a
bee, feminine, competent any of these
could be used to describe the Manager of
the Head Banking Office, Mrs. Beryl
Adams.
While FinCo celebrates its twenty-first
birthday Mrs. Adams celebrates twelve
years with the company. She started
work with the corporation as secretary to
Mr. Richardson FinCo was small then
just six women and three men
comprised the staff.
After six or seven years Mrs. Adams
moved to a new post within the
corporation working closely with the
Government Housing project of Yellow
Elder.
The next step up the ladder was as
Assistant Manager at the newly opened
Robinson Road Branch.
When an opportunity for promotion
came up a year later, the experience
gained as Assistant Manager- together
with her efforts to continuously improve
customer service paid off handsomely,
and Mrs. Adams was appointed as Head
Office Banking Manager.
In accordance with FinCo's policy to
encourage further professional training,
Management secured for Mrs. Adams a
secondment at one of the leading building
societies in England. Recalling the three
month period spent with the Leek and
Westbourne Building Society Mrs. Adams
says, "working in various departments


expands ones outlook and knowledge,
and is extremely interesting.
The English weather, however, is
something else," she adds with a smile.
During her stay she also attended classes
at Farnan Hall, the well known
Building Society Institute College, before
returning to Nassau.
A few months later it was off again to
Puerto Rico this time to spend a week on
a management course, sponsored by the
Royal Bank of Canada.
Working, studying, running a house ...
while such a hectic life might not be for
everyone Mrs. Adams is no stranger to
hard work and responsibility.
Brought up in an environment of hard
work in Clarence Town, Long Island by
her grandmother, Isabella Dean, Mrs.
Adams always took her grandmother as
an example. (Mrs. Dean, by the way, is
still working at eighty-three years of age).
With a scarcity of jobs, during her
young years Beryl says the men went off
on projects while the women, left behind,
had to do all the heavy work on the farms
as well as rearing the children.
Often the men would return after years
of absence to find their children grown,
and that their wives had independently
built homes with the percentage of the
men's earnings which were deducted and
paid through the Post Office savings
accounts. (since there was no FinCo in
those days!!).


FinCo's Banking side handles all the
savings and fixed deposits, but as it is not
a commercial bank you cannot open a
checking account there.
The rate of interest on a Finco savings
account is, however, considerably higher
than the rates paid on an equivalent
account with one of the commercial
banks in town. So why save anywhere
else!
Savings accounts can be opened with as
little as $1.00 and at present 6% interest
per annum is paid on the daily
outstanding balances. No minimum
quarterly balance calculation for FinCo!
On a fixed deposit, interest rates are
even more attractive!! For funds between
$5,000 $50,000 placed for a period of
six months or a year a depositor can earn
interest at the rate of nine percent (9%)
per annum, or 83A% per annum on a short
three month fixed deposit account. Even
on a small fixed account ($500 $4,999)
a customer can earn 8% if he places the
deposit for a period of 3,6 or 12 months.
Children can also open a savings
account by themselves. If the child is old
enough to sign his or her name, he/she
can open up a savings account at FinCo.
This is tied up with FinCo's overall policy
of encouraging Bahamians to save and
then own their own homes. By getting
children in the habit of saving FinCo
plays an important role of helping to
cultivate a national behaviour pattern.

SPECIAL FINCO SUPPLEMENT 3


Finco's 21 years of growing with the Bahamas


Firm has provided huge funds

for Bahamian home building


TWENTY-ONE YEARS AGO in July, 1953, Finance
Corporation of Bahamas Limited was incorporated. With
Trust Corporation of Bahamas Limited as its parent
company, FinCo today is an integral party of the RoyWest
Group.
Originally started as a mortgage and hire purchase
financing firm, the company operated on a small scale in
this field through the fifties until 1958. During this year,
FinCo became an exclusive mortgage lender and consumer
loans were discontinued. By expanding and reorganizing
over the years FinCo evolved into what it is today a
genuine savings and loan company.
Mr. David B. Richardson, Vice President and Managing
Director, describes his company's basic function, "to try


PETER M. KAUTH
Secretary/Treasurer


P.O.Box N837


and generate enough local Bahamian dollar deposits to meet
the continuing demand for the financing of local housing".
All our assets, which today amount to over BS30M, he
explains, are invested in the Bahamas. Over the years FinCo
has lent B$57M for housing. In recent years, we have lent
an average of B$4M a year, Mr. Richardsoh further states.
most of which has been applied to the building of medium
and lower medium priced homes with values in the range of
B$25,000 to $40,000.
FinCo's growth is naturally closely aligned with the
Bahamian economy. During the sixties, particularly from
1966 to 1969, the company had a tremendous growth rate
and was lending out an average of BS7M a year for housing.
It is the Bahamian dollars saved by Bahamians in a FinCo
savings or fixed deposit account that provides the mortgage
money to enable Bahamians to build or purchase their own
homes, said Mr. Richardson.
"Unless we can encourage people to save, we cannot
assist them with their housing needs," Mr. Richardson said.
"The amount of money loaned to home builders or home
buyers depends entirely on the amount of Bahamian dollars
at FinCo's disposal.
"Our bread and butter client is the middle to lower
middle class Bahamian," Mr. Richardson commented
recently.
At the end of the fifties FinCo had assets of only one
million pounds (B$3M). By 1966, these had climbed to
between B$14M and B$15M and by the summer of 1969
they stood at B$29M.
During the period, 1966 to 1967, FinCo provided a large
portion of the funds provided for the financing of low cost
housing under the Government Housing Act putting out
something to the tune of B$9M. This included both the
financing of individuals and subdivision Kennedy and
Yellow Elder Gardens in Nassau and "Hawksbill" in
Freeport.
Presently, FinCo is involved with the financing of
seventeen houses in Highbury Park being built by Oriam
Limited. These homes are in the B$38,000 to B$40,000
bracket with a down payment of some B$4,000 to B$6,000
FinCo handles the difference at under B$400 per month.'
In January of this year when this project was announced,
Mr. Richardson said, "we believe that more Bahamians in
lower middle management positions should be able to
afford and want a house in this price range and we at FinCo
are encouraging the building of houses in this bracket".
Over the years, FinCo has always encouraged the
building of orthodox concrete single family homes and has
not financed wooden houses. At the time of the official
opening of the Robinson Road Branch, Mr. J. H. Gaffney,
Chairman, said that the great bulk of money loaned to
people since the opening of FinCo represents one-family
dwellings, as we believe that "home ownership contributes
to the stability and well-being of the community."

Vice President and Managing Director


Centralised

facilities add

to FinCo's

services


AS FINCO GREW, accommodation needed
expanding.
From 1953 to 1966 the Head Office and the
banking operation were located in the same building
as Trust Corporation on Frederick Street now the
site of the new Central Bank of the Bahamas. Then
both offices moved to Norfolk House which had, at
the time, just been completed.
In March of 1969, to provide more convenient
banking facilities for its clients, FinCo opened a
banking office in Trinity Place which proved a success
from the start.
A further savings branch was opened in Glasgow
House, Robinson Road, in December of 1971 a
step that was described by the then Minister of
Finance, Carlton Francis, as "taking banking to the
people". And then, of course, there is the Freeport
branch in the Churchill Building, Freeport.
Even with a branch on Robinson Road, however,
the banking office in Trinity Place gradually became
too cramped to enable the company to give a
first-class standard of service to the rapidly increasing
number of savers and borrowers.
As a result, FinCo celebrates its twenty-first
birthday by the Head Office -m
and head banking office again
coming together under the
same roof in the newly
renovated Frederick House
on Frederick Street which
r.vin, l,, hUU d lA A .iv-,


vierp ousiy nousec uarciays
Bank International.
Architects for the internal
structural renovations of
FinCo's new home were
Henry Melich and David
White. Sir Robert McAlpine
& Sons (Bahamas) Ltd. were
the main contractors.
SECURITY
Frederick House is not
only convenient and modern
in interior design, but also
boasts all the latest and
sophisticated security
gadgets, including closed
circuit television.
Both customers and staff
must surely have breathed a
sigh of relief to get out of
their cramped quarters in
Trinity Place and into their
new offices on Frederick
Street.
FinCo is the Bahamas'
leading and oldest savings and
loan association and its
solidarity and safety is
unquestioned.
"We keep adequate
liquid funds at all times to
meet all contingencies," Mr.
D. B. Richardson, managing
director, said, "and, to give
an even greater measure of
security, FinCo is part of the
RoyWest Group of companies
whose principal shareholders
are the Royal Bank of Canada
and the National Westminster
Bank".
We could very well
Bahamianise the expression,
"as solid as the Bank of
England" to "as solid as
FinCo."

SPECIAL FINCO SUPPLEMENT


All Bahamlans on

the stal-bartwo


EXCEPT for the Managing Director and
Vice-President, -Mr. David B. Richardson and
Secretary/Treasurer, Mr. Peter M. Kauth, all
the staff are Bahamians. There are 36
altogether and of these, seven are men and 29
women.
Of the female staff, two are in top executive
positions: Mrs Inez Barnett, Mortgge Lending
Controller and Mrs. Beryl Adams, Head
Banking Office Manager.
Mrs. Inez Barnett is a relative newcoiher to
FinCo but brings to her post a wealth of
experience.
Born in Eleuthera, the daughter of Mrs Pearl
Neilly, Inez received her education at the
Eastern Senior School, Nassau Techidcal
School and evening classes at the Extra Mural
Department of UWI. She worked as a legal
secretary for the late Hon. T. A. Toote for
about three years until his death. From there
she worked for Sir Roland Symonette .for
about eleven years doing both secretarial wurk
and selling real estate.
Mrs Barnett received her banking experience
as Loan Officer and then at the savings end, at
two other savings and loan companies.
Meanwhile, she pursued studies in oThpeny
law, law of tort and contract law at th e Extra
Mural Department of U.W.I. and was a.
graduate assistant of the Dale Carnegie course.
She also did a correspondence course on
management from La Salle University.
Thus, when she saw the ad in the paper for a
Mortgage Lending Controller male aged 25
to 35 Mrs. Barnett applied for the position. "I
didn't let the 'male' part stop me", she
recalled.
So for the last year and a half this gentle
mannered lady has been firmly ensconced as
FinCo's Mortgage Lending Controller. Last
February Inez was sent for further training in
Puerto Rico where she attended a seminar on
Advanced Lending sponsored by The Royal
Bank of Canada.
Readers will see from FinCo's mortgage
procedure that "if a borrower fails to qualify
(for a mortgage) we give sound advice as to
what should be done to enable that person to
qualify for a loan at some future date".


Mrs. Bamrnett explained that a number of
people with a limited inee apply for a loan
to build a S30,000 to S5,000 home.
Unfortunately the repayffents on a loan of
this amount are sometimes beyond the means
of the applicant.
While many of thow people have y'
demonstrated that they are good savers we are
unable to help them. Mrs Barnett, therefore,
suggests further savings to get the house up to
the roof stage, rather than belt course, at E BARNETT
which stage the riortage payments should not Mortgage lending controller
be prohibitively high.
It is really in the prospective borrower's
interest to come to us 4or advice prior to
having the plans drawn or the building started.
Our staff always has time available to assist
and advise on the extent of financial assistance
a borrower requires and, in our opinion, can
afford to comfortably service. M


At an early stage, a dream can be revived to
become a reality, once a house has advanced to
the belt course, however, changes are very
costly and a borrower may find it impossible
to obtain the required financing to complete
the project,
To help potential borrowers work out what
they can afford to borrow, is one on the many
services you get at FinCo. The golden rule is
that the monthly payment should not exceed
the combined one week's pay of both husband
and wife. A noticable trend during the past
few years is that many of the borrowers are
single women. "It seems now that more single
gilds are owning their own homes", Mrs.
Barnett udd.
There appears to be a growing tendency for
newly married couplet to move into their own
homes. In many instances, Mrs. Bamett said,
the couple has already acquired a lot and want
to start out their married life in their own
home.
Mrs. Barnett, in addition to her busy
schedule at FinCo, is also secretary of ihe
Business and Profeslonal Woman's Association
and Secretary of BAMTAD.She is married to
Mr. Ralph Barnett and they have four children.

GLASGOW HOUSE on Robinson Road, opened in December 1971, wasa new venture for FinCo. The then Minister
of Finance, Carlton Francis, praised the move and said it was a step in the right direction "taking banking to the
people". Today the branch handles over 3,000 accounts.


As



as


IF YOU DON'T work
downtown, operating an
account in the city can be
inconvenient. For those people
who would like to operate i
savings or fixed deposit
without the hassle of getting
downtown and finding parking
space, FinCo's Robinson Road
branch located in Glasgow
House istclearly the answer.
It was As far back as 1968
that management saw the need
to extend PlnCo's asevic to its
cutomes residing in the m"smth
of New Providence. Whei the
planning reached n*turity on
December 1, 1911, the date of
the official opening, the
response from the public was
* most gratifying, for that very
fit day a total of 75 new
savings accounts were opened.
Gone are the days when the

feing that one must whisper
after entering.
Gone, also is the feeling of
fer by customers to ask to see
the manager whether it be for
flmnadal aid or guidance.
FinCo, always aware of the
chans taking plate in the

challenge by providing
dtu service and
guidance to all people
Mr.J. I. Newbold, manager
R inso Road, is attuned
the new trend. Celebrating
even yeah of service with
FlnCo shortly, he is far from
the stereotype banker who sits
behind his desk and waits for
clients to come to him. He goes
out of his way to meet people
and becomes involved in their
problems.
Betides supervision of the

0 his business to develop new
teouits and advises shall
blnassmnen on better money
iliflagement.
"Make your money work for
you," he suggests to the small
merchants in the community,
particularly in the surrounding
areas adjacent to Robinson
Road. Excess funds in your
current account could be
earning interest in a FinCo
tilfAs or fixed deposit
account, he says. With the high
rates of interest we are
presently able to offer this
should be a source of income
well worth keeping in idfnd, he
adds.
His pleasant and friendly
mammnner, together with the
knowledge gained during two
periods of executive training at
Washington Federal Savings
and Loan Association, makes
Mr. Newbold well qualified for
his position.
Although the real estate
boom in the Bahamas had
slowed down by the time the
Robinson Road office was
openedd in December of 1071,
lim can boast of in excess of
3,000 accounts at his branch.


JAMES NEWBOLD, banking office manager, Robinson ftead


He notes, "That while
Bahamian families appear to be
earning less there are
encouraging signs that they are
having more of their eamings".
Both he and Mrs. Beryl
Adams, hea d banking office
manager, *aree that It is a basic


national trait that Bahamian
women save more than men. If,
after paying all his bills, a man
has twenty dollars leth he will
most likely put it In his pocket

will put it inta their savings

6 SPECIAL PINCO SUPPLEMENT


Computerised systems installed at FinCo's Fr4


THE PAST YEAR, with fewer mortgage applications
being processed in Freeport, has provided the opportunity
for a restructuring of some of the established accounting
systems with a view to providing a faster and more accurate
service to customers, and eliminating some of the more
tedious and, therefore, error-prone manual jobs.
With the relatively small staff in Freeport, it was found
that a back-up of work occurred at the end of each month
when, apart from the normal month-end returns having to
be promptly produced, each mortgage account had to be
individually scrutinised for arrears control, and individual
letters sent to borrows who had missed payments.
After carefully examining three different proposals for
streamlining the mortgage accounting, a computerised
system was selected based on standard American mortgage
accounts. However, this had to be changed substantially to
allow for FinCo's different application of interest charges,
the provision for borrowers to repay amounts that were not


IANCE

OF


necessarily an exact m )nthly payment, and for annual
insurance premiums, etc., to be charged to the accounts.
As the computer has a capacity to absorb far more
information than just the normal account movements and
arrears control, as much information as possible from each
tile was entered int.. th- '"mpuer memory.
" Although the initial set-up work involved a great deal of
extra effort by the Branch staff, the information that is
now on the computer can produce, for better management
control, a variety of statistics and monthly information that
would otherwise be a time consuming chore.
After a trial period, during which the few initial
problems were ironed out, the Freeport mortgage accounts
have now been switched over entirely to the computer for
accounting control and routine correspondence. The
monthly in-put is processed on three I.B.M. 7330
Computers in conjunction with an I.B.M. 1402 Programmer
md Sorter.
I-AL M


Individual reminders are sent to all borrowers Who are in
default, and these letters are automatically produced, ready
for signature and mailing, within four or five days after the
month end.
In addition, a monthly list of all insurance renewals
failing due during the next month is produced for the
Insurance Department, together with standard letters to all
persons who have had their monthly insurance premiums
paid by the Corporation during the previous month.
It is interesting to note that one of the major insurance
companies was so impressed with FinCo's computer print
out of their policies maturing each month that they are
now looking into the possibility of computerising all their
premium renewal and accounting controls.
An index card for each account is produced by the
