hotels


By MIKE LOTHIAN
THREE HUNDRED AND
SEVENTY-FOUR hotel
employees voted over-
whelmingly last !night in
favour of shutting down the
island's hotels by strike action,
if necessary, to back union
demands in the contract
dispute with the Hotel
Employers Association.
The srike vote 6b> members
of the Hotel and Cateinng
Workers Uinion, conducted

supe'risiton, c,.it'0 as W inCmore
in a series of union moves
challenging Labut i Minister
Cliftord L. Da ling's right to
determine what i legal ow

relations.
If union officials do call for
a walk-out, its legality is licl,
to be determined in the final
analysis by the law courts.
The strike, if it conims, will
hit the tourism industry)
without warning at any titnle.
Uf the 374 votes cast at tlhe
ITaxico Union Ilall on Wi. ilt
Road. 365 authorized union
officers to call fot a
work- ,.l'|.,',i seven ballots
were spoiled ando only two
opposedd a strike.
Under t he Industrial
Relations Act three things
must happen before workers
can legally strike.
The Minister of Labour must

a dispute so that, if necessary,
S the Ministry' s conciliation
i machinery can be brought into
play
Three statutory periods
totalling 53 lki s tnitst elapse
between the notice ind t he
actual strike.
A majority of the workers
concerned must vote in ta\our
of strike action.
In the current trouble, the
union gave written notice that
a dispute existed on November
7 last year and again oni
January 23 this year. In both
cases the minister has,
according to the union.
rejected the notices on grounds
that in his view the union and
the association had not
exhausted their own bilateral
powers of negotiation. The
union is challenging the
Minister's authority to decide
whether a dispute in tact
exists- in their view. that
question can be answered onill
by the parties concerned.
As far as the unitu is
concerned the 53-dla
S "cooling-off" period in the
present case expired on lDec.
30. The Minister, by rejecting
the original notice of the
dispute, obviously disagrees.
STRIKE VOTE
The strike vote called for by
the Act was taken last night,
but its legality is almost
certainly going to bhe
questioned. The relevant
section of thie Industrial
Relations Act states that
whenever a union proposes to
take a vote, at least two days'
written notice must be given to

A spokesman for New
Providence Development
Company, initiator of the
project, said that response to
the first group of houses had
been "very good." with title
already taken to ten and the
remaining six in various stages
of mortgage approval.
This month work will
begin on 106 more of the
th r e e-bedroom-one-bath
homes, all of which will be
priced under S20,000.
The low cost has been
made possible through use of
a new building system which
produces houses and other
structures for substantially
less than those constructed
by traditional methods.

'ARBITRATION AGREEMENT'


YET another legal question in the Hotel
Union's moves toward strike action was raised
today when informed sources revealed that the
union on December 6 agreed that if no
contract settlement was in sight by January31
Labour Minister Clifford L. Darling would
refer the whole matter to the Industrial
Relations Board for arbitration.
The Hotel Employers Association today
declined comment on the union's strike vote
last night, but industry sources disclosed the
contents of a Dec. 6 agreement signed by the
Minister, the union and the Association.
That agreement, the sources said, delcared
that if by the end of January there was no
agreement and there were "no prospects of an
agreement in sight," the matter would be sent
to the Board.
The suggestion was that by striking, the
union would be breaking the legally-binding


the Ministry, and "the ballot
shall be taken under the
supervision of all officer of the
Ministry, who shall attend" the
meeting.
The section adds that
"unless the ballot is so taken
and is certified by that officer
to have been properly taken,
the union concerned shall not
be deemed to have determined
upon strike action in
accordance with the provisions
of this section."'
In the current dispute, the
union in fact hand-delivered a
notice of the strike vote
meeting to Chief Industrial
Officer and Registrar of Trade
Unions, W. L. Lambert Parker,
at 3- 15 p.m. Friday well
over the required 48 hours
prior to the time set for the
vote.
But no Ministry official
showed up to supervise the
voting last night, presumably
because in the Ministry's view
the stage at which a strike vote
could be taken had not yet
been reached.
The vote was therefore not
certified as properly
conducted, and the Act does
confer upon Mr. Parker the
power to "declare the ballot to
be void and of no effect."
Whether the union would
abide by such a declaration
remains to be seen.
Union president David
Knowles told union members
last night that Mr. Darling has
already indicated that if no
agreement is reached by Friday
of this week he would refer the
matter to the Industrial
Relations Board for
arbitration.

Dec. 6 agreement.
Asked to comment on the disclosure this
morning, a union spokesman, speaking in
confident terms, suggested that the wording of
the agreement should be read very carefully,
He laid heavy emphasis on the interpretation
of the phrase "no prospects of an agreement i
sight."
Other sources raised the further point that
in fact the Jan. 31 deadline has passed, and the
Minister has not yet exercised his power under
the Dec. 6 agreement. Instead, a further
agreement was arrived at whereby the parties
would negotiate at least another week.
The union has said that Mr. Darling has
indicated that if there is no significant progress
by Friday then he would send it to the Board
Whether the Minister's decision to send the
dispute to the Board after Friday was
unilateral or by agreement is not known.,

Pompidou may pick


new premier


PARIS L'Express said
Sunday that President Georges
Pompidou will appoint Finance
Minister Valery Giscard
d'Estaing premier before the
end of February because the
present premier, Pierre
Messmer, has been unable to
gain the confidence of the
French people.
French officials refused to
comment on the report in the
weekly magazine. Under the
French constitution, the
president appoints the premier,
but Pompidou so far has
remained silent on any plans to
replace Messmer.
L'Express said Pompidou
believes that "circumstances
demand a premier who can


master the economy and make
himself heard by Frenchmen."
L'Express said the president
has no quarrel with the way
Messmer has run the
government since he became
premier in June 1973, "but he
believes the French people
have no trust because Messmer
has not been able to establish
communications."
Giscard d'Estaing, 48, has
been much in the public eye
recently. He addressed the
nation on television to explain
last month's decision to float
the franc, and subsequently led
the government's defense of
this action during an
extraordinary session of the
National Assembly.


L'Fxpress said that, in
contrast, Messmer's
performance before the
Assembly was dull and he
received practically no public
acclaim during a visit to the
Lyon region last week.
If Giscard d'Estaing is
named premier, it would be a
major stepping stone to
president when Pompidou's
term expires in 1976. French
political pundits for years have
placed the finance minister
among frontrunners to succeed
Pompidou.
But L'Express said Giscard
d'Estaing recently told two of
his colleagues in the Cabinet he
would not run for president if
Pompidou does not specifically
select him as successor.


round and certainly deserve a
holiday," Oliver said. "What
we'll do is probably take it
closer to home than usual."
He said that despite the
restriction to a three-day
workweek at his shop, "we're
squeezing in a couple of extra
hours of production a day" in
making lamp standards and
other fittings.
Oliver says the
government's request for
families to cut use of
electricity at home by 25 per
cent doesn't make sense.
"We can't," he said. "The
British public simply is not
wasteful. At home we never
have lights burning in rooms
not being used. There's not
25 per cent to cut down on."


Murdoch's

new paper
NEW YORK -
Australian-British publisher
Rupert Murdoch introduced a
new national weekly
newspaper, the National Star,
at a news conference.
The 25-cent tabloid, with
an initial press run of 1.5
million, will sell at retail
outlets, chain stores and
newstands starting Feb. 5.
Murdoch said the National
Star "will refuse to be dull"
and will appeal primarily to
the young.
He said there are "many
great newspapers in the
United States today, but they
are aimed at the rich and the
intellectual."
He said distribution would
begin in the northeast and
"we expect it will take four
months to achieve full
national distribution."
The weekly newspaper
represents the biggest and
most daring U.S. venture of
the man who built a British
publishing empire that grosses
$300 million a year. (AP)

TRUCKERS


VIOLENCE


MOUNTS


NEW YORK Gunfire,
rock throwing and tyre slashing
added today to the troubles
stemming from a strike by
independent truck drivers that
is crippling food deliveries and
causing job layoffs.
An estimated 20,000
workers whose jobs depend on
truck shipments were reported
idled by the strike.
Violence was reported in
more than a dozen states, and
in some areas national guard
troops were helping keep the
peace.
Two drivers suffered
shoulder wounds from bullets
that struck their trucks Sunday
night. Authorities said there
had been 14 shootings at
trucks and up to 100 other
violent incidents in the state of
Pennsylvania since last
Wednesday.
One trucker died in violence
related to the shutdown last
Thursday.
About 3,400 national
guardsmen stood watch on
Ohio and Pennsylvania
highways. Federal and state
officials recessed a Washington
meeting early Monday without
settling the growing shutdown
that has touched at least 30
states.
Thousands of trucks are not
operating and hundreds of
truck stop stations-cafes have
closed since Thursday.
What are the striking
independent truckers
demanding? It depends on
which one of them is speaking.
Lower fuel prices. Higher
freight rates. Higher speed
limits. HIigher weight limits.
Adequate fuel supplies at truck
stops. Guarantees that
increased costs can be passed
to the consumer.
That is a consensus of the
various demands over which
thousands of independent
truckers have idled their rigs in
at least 30 states.
Until the recent energy crisis
began pinching their
pocketbooks, the estimated
100,000 independent drivers
had no organization through
which to voice their
complaints. Many made
$20,000 a year or more by
owning their rigs and hiring out
their services.
Now that's changed, and at
least a dozen organizations
have sprung up overnight to
represent the drivers Their
demands are not the same in all
cases. But here is a compilation
of what they want:
Fuel prices they say diesel
fuel has risen from just over 25
cents a gallon to nearly 50
cents in the past year. They
want the price rolled back to
the low 30s, and a ceiling
placed there. Energy chief
William Simon and others are
reluctant to favour such a
move. Since fuel prices reflect
the cost of oil, a rollback in
diesel presumably would mean
a rollback in crude oil prices.
Freight rates some
organizations want a 14 per


cent hike in the imone
truckers get for their cargo.
Others are asking that freight
rates rise on a dollar-for-dollir
basis as costs of running a
truck rise. The interstate
commerce commission ias
granted a four per cent increased
for midwestern and eastern
steel and iron haulers, and
officials have promised other
increases. One driver said the
four per cent jump would
mean $20 more on ,
Phi ladelphia to ('hn.-,.Z
run.
Speed limits All tLIckr,
have protested the s
ni.p.h. speed limit which
soon to be nationwide. Ihe'.
claim, although a number ,+
experts say it isn't so, that
their big rigs are more IlI, 1i. I r
at higher speeds. They want a
65 m.p.h. limit. Mot
government officials seei;
inclined not to budge on thi,
demand.
Weight limits current laws
generally limit truckers to ,m
80.000-pound load. But the
truckers, who get more mrone
if they haul more cargo, sa,
this must be raised if they're
forced to go slower. Some state
officials say higher weight
limits will tear up highways.
Fuel supplies Truckers sa.
they have to stop at ever,
other truck stop to keep rolling
because most dealers have
limited diesel supplies and are
limiting purchases. Simon ha,
pledged to increase diesel ftu
supplies to alleviate ttin
problem.

By ETIENNE DUPUCill
IMNTSI RR \T, NOVEMBIR 28 When we toured islands in
thlie Caribbean for a second time some years ago I remembered a
tine chap from Montserrat who had served with me in the British
West Indies Regiment in tihe first world war over a half century
ago. I decided that I would try to find him.
This would not be easy for two reasons. First, I didn't
remember his name. All I remembered was that I knew him and I
liked him. Secondly, because Montserrat is off the beaten track
and is more difficult to reach than the larger islands that are ont
the inamn route covered by scheduled flights of the major airlines.
It is very near to Antigua ... even nearer than Andros is to
Nassau ... but it has its own government which has no alliance
with the government of Antigua.
A small plane makes a daily flight front Antigua to Montserrat
and then connects with other islands int the area. Another plane
,of the same local airline makes a flight from Montserrat to
Antii'ua. in the afternoon. And so it is possible to spend a day at
Moniserrat and return to Antigua in tie afternoon.
Since I was searching for someone whose name I didn't even
ememinber on my first visit to Montserrat. I set aside three days
tfr Ithe journey.
It didn't take me long to find my army friend because he was
well kno\in and very popular in the island and so a name was
promptly given to a description of the man I sought.
I found him. We had a pleasant reunion, and, after I returned to
Nassau, we corresponded fairly regularly. Then there was silence
and I wondered what had happened to him.
My wilfe alk o rmet Jeffers on our visit to Montserrat ... and liked
him. And so we decided, to.lake a day on this trip and go to the
island again. This we did today. And it did not take long to find
out the reason for his silence. He was dead.
And so we spent the day meeting and talking with people.
Our first visit, of course, was to my friend's widow who was
badly shaken by the loss of her husband. She said she did not
.write to tell mce about her loss because she had been ill and went
to live for a time with friends on another island in the area.

Ilhere s cause tot concern in this island which depends very
heavily( on tourism to Live a base to its economy.
None of these islands are nearly as well developed as Nassau
but they have all cultivated an insecure economy by depending
very heavily on tourist traffic for the butter and jam on their
bread. Without the tourist revenue the harder for these people
would be pretty bare.
The people are concerned because there has been a falling off
ofi investment and tourism in the island.
Different reasons are given for this loss of business. A woman
told tme lthiat this was tlie result of crime in the island, especially a
wave of ltapexs that had struck even the tourist colony.
1 his island doesn't have large hotels. Its tourist development
has taken the form of home builders which is concentrated in two
sections of the island ... one being principally American, the other
Canadian with English families distributed among the two groups.
An attempt had been made by a rapist on the woman with
wshon I talked and, of course, she was emotionally upset,
especially\ by the fact that the principal offender was still at large.
later I talked with one of the leading men in the island. He
contained the fact that their tourist business had been adversely
affected but he thought it was because of the major crimes that
had been committed in other islands which had caused many
people to stay away from the entire Caribbean.
Ile agreed that a rapist was still at large and that the police had
not been able to locate him.
"This is a small island with a population of only about
20,000", he explained. "Everybody is related to everybody else
and so the police do not have an easy time locating a criminal if
he is popular and his family and friends decide to hide him."
This used to be true of Nassau. I remember some years ago ...
when I had two men living on my farm at Cainperdown ... a
Iu ricane was approaching.
One of the iimen was from Exumta. the other lived in East Street
neai McCullough (Corner. lie wanted to go home to see how his
aunt was faring before the hurricane struck. I offered to drive himn
to his house and return ant hour later and pick him up.
When we arrived at his house a woman was rocking peacefully
in a chat, on the front porch. She seemed completely
unconcerned about lthe approach of the hurricane.
The young man walked by the woman and went into the
house The\ didn't seen to exchange a greeting.
When I tcurncied an hour later the woman was still rocking oni
thlie potch. I asked her Ifor the man. She said that no tman lived in
that house. I told her his name. She said she had never heard the
ntm.iire belooe.
"You mussi make a big mistake," she told mte, not missing a
rhythm in hio rocking exercise. She was convincingly calmn.
"But I iist left him here an hour ago, he walked by you and
went in that doori," I insisted pointing to a door only a few feet
tmom where she was sitting.
"Well misterr" she insisted calmly, "I ain't blind, I ain't drunk,
1 ain't dumb, I bin sitting' here all morning' an' I ain't see no man
pass me. You muissy tak' a big mistake. I tink you shud try
artl iider hIouse down de road."
At that moment my man came out the door I had seen him go
in an hour earlier.
"Dis mu boss nmo a. Auntme," he told the woman rocking in the
chair.
"O1h dis ver boss nun, he, ." the woman in the rocking chair
echoed amiably. "Good morning boss man, glad ter meet yer."
And she went right on rocking as though she was seeing me for
the first time.
I dn'tm know how much this condition exists in crime
detection in Nassau today but I understood what the man was
talking about when he said that families and friends of a criminal
do not always cooperate with the police.


When I asked my nun for an explanation of his aunt's
behaviour hlie replied cahnly that she "mussy taut you wuzL a


One week to go for 1973 l



Golden Heart nominations


NOMINATIONS for the
annual Golden Heart Award
sponsored by The Sir Victor
Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart
Foundation and presented at
the annual Heart Ball have one
more week to go with the
deadline being February
9. Instituted by the Heart
Foundation five years ago the
much coveted award gives
public recognition to a person
who has labourd unpublicized
for his or her deeds: gives
recognition so that the person
honoured' may receive a
moment of public awareness
and everlasting gratitude; gives
recognition to the need for
such unselfish promoters of
human welfare and dignity to
continue with their much
needed and dedicated work;
gives recogn ition and
encouragement to unknown
and unassuming practitioners
of the golden rule ... "I will
help him for he is my brother."
The Foundation again
stresses that is a recognition of
performance and not
popularity. The Foundation,
through the Golden Heart
Award, hopes that one annual


award of recognition spiritually
gives satisfaction to the many
others who also serve, and
deserve recognition. There are
many people in this
community who fit the
description for nominations:
"to that person who has given
of himself unselfishly to
promote human welfare and
dignity while making life better
for his fellowman."
Winner of the 1972 Golden
Heart Award was Dr. Leonard
('. Huggins, a member of the
Bahamian medical profession
for the past 47 years. He was
honoured "for the great deeds
and sacrifices he made for the
people of this country. It
seems that he has continuously
forgotten the limitations of his
body while responding to the
dictates of his heart. It is
difficult even for his colleagues
to understand how he was able
to perform as well in so many
capacities. HIe was always
ready, willing and able to
alleviate pain and suffering,
irrespective of the personal
sacrifices that such assistance
entailed, in the primitive
communities of the Out


p'lecemnan."
I wondered why the aunt was concerned to cover tp for this
man. Ile was my favourite worker on the farm. There had been
some stealing from the place and he was helping me to try to find
out who was doing the stealing. Hle had secretly suggested that it
must be the man from F xuma. He said he looked like a "teef" to
him.
Knowing how much these people believed in obeah I worked
out a plan with this man whereby I would put the I xulma man to
an obeah test that would point the finger at him.
"Yes boss man." my man agreed when I outlined my plan to
him. "Dat shud fix him up strait."
And so we had the test. As I arranged it, the obeah test pointed
an accusing finger at the other man who protested his innocence.
lie left after that ... and so did my favourite man.
Some time later my favourite man's name appeared in the
court news. lie had been sent to prison for ... stealing.
This made mle curious. I dug deeper into the losses from my
farm and found that this man was the culprit. lie had been selling
iy stuff in Fox Hill!
Years later this man turned up in my office one day. Hlie was
very pleasant and appeared to be normal. I did not realize until
ilie days later that he had escaped from the mental hospital at
Sandilands.
Boy, I'm telling you, the police must have a hard job probing
the minds of criminals. These people can be the most convincing
liars God almighty ever created.

Going back to Montserrat. The people on that island have
added cause for concern. They are being hard hit by the fuel
crisis. A taxi driver told me about it and he was scared.
I later checked with a business man and he said that hlie had
heard that the ration was to be two gallons a month.
I finally checked with a man nearer the heart of things in the
island. He said that the rationing had to be severe but even five
gallons a month would be far too little. Some discretion, he said,
would have to be used in the rationing procedure. Some people
would have to have a more liberal ration than others. And, of
course, taxi drivers would have to be given prime consideration.
Fortunately, only small cars are used by private owners on
the island but, even so, it is feared that the tourist settlements
will be severely affected because they are a great distance from
the centre of town and still further away from tile airport.

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: On Saturday I told you that the
members of the press had been invited to a cocktail party to meet
the Premier of Antigua at the Blue Waters Hotel on the northern
side of the island.
At first the invitation was by word of mouth but later in the
afternoon it was confirmed by a formal writtilt invitation to each
member of the press to a party being given by the Premier and
Mrs. Walters at Blue Waters that evening.
There was a good turn out of members for the party because.
like me, most of the men wanted to meet this man and form their
own impression of him.
Blue Waters turned out to be a really beautiful spot. The partly
was being held in an enchanting tropical garden on the edge ot a
swimming pool with the waters of the ocean making ithythn by
lapping the sands of a beach a short distance away.
Everything was perfect for a party but, alas ... the Premier and
Mrs. Walters never turned up!
This is typical behaviour of some of the new rulers in these
islands. This is a way they have of trying to impress on others a
feeling of superiority they have cultivated in their new seat of
power. But I think that a psychologist would analyse it as a foi in
of inferiority complex. Big men don't behave this way because
they don't have to use artificial means of making themselves
appear to be important.

I must say a word for "Josey", a taxi driver in Antigua who
drove us from the airport to the hotel on our arrival at Antigua.
He has taken care of us since we have been here.
I was concerned the morning we were going to Montserrat. We
had to get up at 4 o'clock to make this trip. The plane was
scheduled to leave at 6 a.m. This meant arriving at the airport not
later than 5:30.
I asked Josey if he would pick us up at 5 a.m. HIe agreed. If he
failed uts we would not have been able to make the ntip as there
was no other transportation available.
He did not fail us. He was there waiting when we went to the
lobby of the hotel at 5 a.m. He said he lived a great many miles
away. And so he had left his home early because hie wanted to be
sure not to fail us. He said he had been there since 4 a.in
He had earlier told me that the taxi drivers were having a hard
time in making two ends meet these days and so he wasn't
missing a chance to lake an extra dollar.
I think it was more than the need to make a dollar in Josev's
case. Hlie struck me as being by nature a responsible man. He is a
good driver to have if you ever visit Ant igua.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY
An ancient ruler was concerned that he should not become a
tyrant. And so he had a ring made on which was engraved an
insecription.
Whenever he felt an urge to abuse his power he consulted the
ring and read the inscription ... which reminded him that ... even
this shall pass away."

'Grip on youth' 4


when protein d

By LELORD KORDEL
-iumber Three of a Series
Several years ago I set out to answer to my own satis-
faction the question of "how much protein is enough?"
Using myself as a guinea pig, for eight months I gradu-
ally and d'-.i., i.,',_i. cut the amount of protein in my
daily meals to a point which I knew to be inadequate.
Every 24 hours I would consume only one medium-
7'zed portion of either cheese, O:.-. meat, fish or poultry.
And I about once a week I would skip protein entirely.

T t te had now arrived toh.
T1' sic- ITIVlha ndxw arrived to


discover whether or not, after
deliberately sending my youth
on its way, I could coax it to re-
turn by building up the amount
of protein in my daily meals.
Within a month after starting
to eat three high-protein meals
a day. I could sense a marked
change for the better in my dis-
position And not only was my
zest for life definitely on the in-
crease, but my face had lost its
strained. w e a r y expression,
while the same daily routines no

chair-bound at night.
I hope that you. too, may ex-
perience that inexpressible joy
of once more feeling like your
,old self.
This is what my experiment
proi'd t. me- "Some" protein

that not-exactly-sick,. et not-ex-

.',ilh.._ib I had eaten three
'ih Ir.-i, in meals each day for
years, during the experiment my
body could not fall back indefi-
nitely on the protein reserves for
the reason that the body cannot
store protein as heavily as it
can fats, sugars, some minerals
and certain ,vitamins. When not
, ii-1,,h protein is supplied in the
diet. your body turns into a
heartless cannibal and begins to
feed upon itself.
PROTEIN (. ANNIBAI.SM
When a protein deficiency ex-
ists, certain body cells are con-
siumed in order to feed the more
necessary ones. Not that the de-
stryvecd cells arc unimportant.

portant to the living body must
feed on those that can be spared,

is this continued form of protein
cannibalism that is the real
cause of disease, of premature
aging.
The food portions mentioned
below will provide a daily mini-
mum of 75 grams of protein.
These minimum portions of
protein foods are listed merely
that you may judge approxi-
mately how to double, even tre-
ble this minimum protein intake
to meet your own bodily needs,
By no means am I recom-
mending the following portions
as adequate protein for three
meals. These quantities are giv-
en for the sole purpose of allow-
ing you to compare your own
daily protein consumption with
the absolute minimum for good
health, so you may decide for
yourself how far above or below.
this minimum standard Vour
meals will average:
I average serving of meat
(fish, poultry included)
1 egg
3 slices of whole grain bread
1 pint of non-fat milk or its
equivalent as powdered skim
milk. buttermilk, sour milk.
-t?.,r or other cheeses
1 serving of d r i e d lentils,
whole grain or seed cereal
1 serving of cooked g re en
vegetables
I green salad
1 serving of 'gg custard
1 serving of fresh or cooked
fruit
There is no protein in air, in
water, in a cigaret. in a cup of
coffee or in an alcoholic or car-
bonated drink.
The one and only place where
you can obtain this imlj ratively
needed repair material ,,: your
body cells is from the food you
eat each day.
\Iih.... h it s easily possible
for ever man, woman and child
in this country to get 'nou h
protein for an optimum diet, re-
cent surveys have disclosed the
alarming fact that the diets of
from 50 to 60 percent are dan-
gerously lacking in protein.
Next: How too much starch in
your diet can cause heart ail-


at least for the time being, It ments, other degenerative ills.

She hopes pregnancy



will solve all problems


By Abigail Van Buren
t 1974 by Chicago TrIbunv-N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I am 14 years old. My mother has a
health problem so she and my Dad go south from Novem-
ber until April. That means I have to change schools, leave
all my friends, and go to Arizona with them. I went last
year and hated it! I told them I wouldn't go again, but here
I am in Arizona and I despise it. I have a boy friend up
north and we are extra close.
I told my parents if they don't send me home to stay
with a friend [relatives are out, they are like prison
guards!] I will kill myself, but they don't believe me.
Abby, if I run away, will they lock me up? I would
rather be in an orphanage than live like this. Can't some-
body help me? When I see my boy friend I am going to get
pregnant right away so they'll have to let me get married.
Please don't tell me to listen to my parents. They hate me.
And I hate them. I wish I was dead. Tell me what to do. I
trust you. TORN APART
DEAR TORN: You have a lot of bitterness and resent-
ment to unload. Tell your parents you want to get your
head together and would like to express your feelings to an
objective, qualified third party. A psychiatrist or psychri
ogist can help you and your parents develop a better rela-
tionship. Running away or getting pregnant will only make
a bad situation worse. Talk to your parents today and
make a deal! Good luck And let me hear from you again.
I care.

DEAR ABBY: Something happened again last night
which practically ruined my evening, and I'd like to know
how to handle it if it should happen again, which I'm sure
it will.
There is an extremely overbearing, obnoxious woman
in town who insists that she is related to me, and every
time she sees me, she greets me loudly with, HELLO,
COUSIN!"
In the first place, she is NOT my cousin. Is there some
way I can get this loud-mouthed woman to quit calling me
"Cousin" without coming right out and insulting her?
My first cousin, once removed, was briefly married to
this woman's second cousin, twice removed.
NO COUSIN
DEAR COUSIN: People who insist on claiming you as a
relative will do so, no matter how many times you "re-
move" them. There is nothing you can do about it, so grin
and bear it.

DEAR ABBY: I can usually handle my own problems,
but this requires advice that only you can give.
I am a single fellow and find myself very much at-
tracted to Jane, and I think Jane is also attracted to me.
About a week ago Jane and her husband separated. I
don't want to hurt my chances with this very special lady
so here's where you come in. When would it be proper for
me to ask Jane out? WAITING WITH BAITED BREATH
DEAR WAITING: Wait a little longer. Couples usually
separate in order to think things over. If your hunch is
right and Jane is interested in starting up with you she'll
get the message to you somehow.

Know," send $1 to Abigail Van Buren, 132 Lasky Dr., Bev.

FREEPORT Rotary Club President Sonny Waugh
presents the Certificate and Medal identifying Rotarian Bert
Sinden as a Paul Harris Fellow.


Rotary club birthday


FREEIPORT. G.B. The
Freeport Rotary Club
celebrated its I12th birthday at
its weekly meeting on January
24.
Founded on January 25,
1962, the Freeport Rotary
Club is a member of District
699. and is one of six Rotary
Clubs in the Bahamas. Rotary
Clubs throughout the world
have a common bond in their
motto: "Service above self"
and "lie profits most who
serves the best."
During its 12 years the
Freeport Rotary Club has
accomplished much in the
Grand Bahama community.
The Club members have
been responsible for the
development of the Seagrape
Playground; collection of
books for school libraries in
outlying areas: development of
the Rotary playing field which
was subsequently donated to
the YMCA and is part of the
Y's present site: establishment
of a scholarship fund to give
worthy students the
opportunity to further their
education, donation to the
Grand Bahama YMCA to


provide games room and
building equipment. aid to
earthquake victims in
Nicaragua; and donation to the
Rotary Foundation enabling
the Freeport Rotary Club to
name a Paul Harris Fellow.

Highlighting the club's
celebration was the cutting of
the birthday cake by President
Sonny Waugh and past
president Reg Curtis, Albert
Antoni. Mike Barrell. Joel
Smith, and Bert Sinden. %
The programme for the day
was a surprise to all present,
and especially for Rotarian
Bert Sinden who was named a
Paul Harris Fellow. The
presentation of the Paul Harris
Medal and Certificate, was
prefaced by tributes offered by
many of Mr. Sinden's friends
attesting to his character and
the qualities that gained him
the high honour of becoming a
Paul Harris Fellow. Attending
the celebration were a number
of visiting Rotarians, and Dr.
Ron Bourne, who is the
District Governor Elect for
District 699, and a former
President of the Lucaya Rotary
Club.


Boone's

wine
Separate press releases
appearing in The Tribune of
January 29 and The Nassau
Guardian of January 30 have
co nveyed the erroneous
impression that the Ministry of
Health has endorsed Boone's
Farm Apple Wine as fit for
human consumption.
A spokesman for the
Ministry of Health today
categorically denied that the
Ministry had approved the
endorsement of Boone's Farm
Apple Wine or any alcoholic
beverage, or intends in the
future to endorse any such
product.
It has never been the policy
of the Ministry of Health to
endorse as fit for human
consumption any alcoholic
product regardless of its
chemical composition. To the
contrary, the Ministry feels
that all alcoholic beverages are
a hazard to the health of the
nation as well as a social evil.
The Ministry's spokesman
said that he wanted to make it
perfectly clear that no one is
authorised to directly or
indirectly endorse any produce
in the name of the Ministry of
Health or to imply that the
Ministry of Health has given
endorsement to a particular
product.

Maximum emphasis


on training-Maynard


THE MINISTER of
Tourism, the Hon. Clement T.
Maynard, said today that his
Ministry will continue to put
maximum emphasis on staff
training. And as more middle
and top management posts
become available within the
Ministry, it is his intention to
fill them with qualified
Bahamians.
The remarks came as the
Minister addressed members of
the Tourist Advisory
Committee at its first meeting
for 1974 held at th,-
Sheraton-British Colonial
Hotel.
Mr. Maynard said the
Ministry's staff training
programme started five years
ago and during this period
several Bahamians have been
promoted to key positions in
the organization. They include
Mr. John Deleveaux and Mr.
Basil Albury who are now
assistant directors of tourism.
"Only a few years ago there
were no Bahamians employed
in the Ministry of Tourism
overseas offices," Mr Maynard


said. "Today, with the
exception of three overseas
offices. Bahamians make up a
reasonable portion of our
overseas staff."
Mr. Maynard said that the
Tourist Office in Boston, which
is an important market area for
the Bahamas, is managed by a
Bahamian, Mr. Eugene Gibbs.
Prior to being appointed to his
present position, Mr. Gibbs
worked as a representative for
the Ministry of Tourism in
Washington. Presently there are
six Bahamian sales
representatives for the Ministry
abroad: one in Canada, one in
Los Angeles, one in
Washington, one in Chicago
and two in New York.
The Minister also pointed
out that the Bahamas Tourist
News Bureau, the local public
relations arm of the Ministry of
Tourism is being managed by a
Bahamian. The News Bureau
has a staff of five experienced
journalists, four of them being
Bahamians.
He said that the Ministry
staff in Nassau included seven

"Although a great deal of
emphasis has always been
placed on advertising the
Bahamas tourist product,
-promotions, whether they be
off-shore, or on-shore, will
continue to play a very
important part in selling the
Bahamas as the number one
resort destination," Mr.
Maynard said. "With this being
the case. Ministry of Tourism
personnel at all levels will,
from time to time, be called on
to join other segments of the
tourist industry in the Bahamas
for promoting the country
overseas, I might add here that
the assistant director in charge
of promotions is a Bahamian."
During the two-hour
meeting, the Minister
welcomed new members to the
committee, adding that "the
same spirit of goodwill and
objectivity that kept us
together during the past several
years will prevail in 1974 and
in the many years to come."
WATERGATE ATTACK
WASHINGTON Former
White House speechwriter John
Andrews has accused President
Nixon and his aides of handling
the Watergate issue "behind
closed doors" and said this has
damaged the institution of the
presidency.
In d statement he read to a
newsman in a telephone
interview, Andrews, one of the
first former White House aides
to criticize the president, said
Nixon's conduct had damaged
the institution of the
presidency.
"For too long ... the
American people have been
asked to swallow their
concerns about presidential
integrity while Mr. Nixon and
his aides worked out the
Watergate matter in their own
way behind closed doors,"
Andrews said.
"The damage which this
approach is doing to the
institution of the presidency
must be stopped," he said

That was the message as the
Tlenth Common wealth Games
ended here Saturdas with the
.I',. itn i g world record of
3:32.2 for the 1,500 meters
run by Tanzania's Filbert Bayi.
It came at the end of 10
da\s in the sun at this city's
new stadium in Queen
Elizabeth II Park. Kenya. the
top track and field team at the
Games with six gold medals,
led a remarkable African
charge.

Bavi knocked nine-tenths of
a second of the seven-year-old
relirdi of tmerica's Jim Ryun.
Among the crowd of 35,000
which watched the historic
race was England's l)r Roger
Bannister, who himself made
history 20 years ago by
ru n n in g the first
sub-four-minute mile.
"Thb advance of \ frican
athletes has been the most
remarkable feature of these
games," Bannister told
new stien
"The have come forward
particularly in the women's
events. I he signs are that the
\Aricans will be a serious threat

Bannister added [hat the

Bannister sasw B\i ran the
"nietril milee" in a was he
hiitselt never attempted
leading from the start anti
setting his own pace. Bannister
always relied on someone to
pice him.
Basi explained he fo llowss
these tactics because of what
happened to him at the M\unich

"I got boxed in and was
never able to trw to take the

only Ite-tenth o! a second

Bayi and Walker stopped
Jpcho from being the first

Two other Kenyans turned
in times that promise well for
Montreal. Charles Asati won
the 400 meters in 46.0 and
John Kipkurgat won the 800

A little 20-year-old Nigerian
girl, Modupe Oshikoya, made
her mark for Africa by
winning a gold, a silver and a
bronze.
She was first in the long

Why there's more to basketball than winning for St. Augustine's


By GLADSTONE THURSTON

HIER- is more to sports than just winning.
So don't knock defending champs St,
Augustine's (.. leit" if they disappoint you a
bit this season.
"My first obligation to these youngsters and
they to themselves is to try to evince in them a
pursuit of excellence," said senior boys head
coach Vince Ferguson. "Whether you have
little talent or a lot of talent never be satisfied
with anything other than the best."
That, he said, is the important lesson used at
St. Augustine's in playing ball. "The primary
purpose as we see it for the medium of sports
is to build character in our youngsters."
Ihis year is the first time in three seasons





OBED FIT FOR



SPENCER CLA


BAHAMAS welterweight
champ Elisha Obed
(pictured) defends his
unbeaten career of 43 bouts
next week Friday at the
Nassau Stadium when he
takes on Jamaica's number
one middleweight contender
Windell Spencer in a ten
rounder.
Spencer who in his Nassau
debut stopped Sherwin
Johnson in two during June
last year fights for the
Jamaican title come March.
Spencer will be seeking
revenge of Obed's unanimous
decision over fellow
Jamaicans Roy Goss and
Bunny Grant.
Grant was Obed's 'acid
test? "We were trying to get
Obed for a long time now,."
said Spencer's manager.
Grant and Goss were the
only opponents of Obed's 12
bouts last year to carry him
the full distance. Spencer has
a record of 25 wins and two
losses including 14
knockouts.
In the meantime, Obed
who will be making his
second ring appearance this
year is back at the Miami
Beach Fifth Street Gym
Obed's sore elbow which
troubled him during his
victory over Tommy Von
Hatten last month has been
reportedly responding to
treatment and will not be a
factor in his upcoming match,

St. Augustine's College senior boys will lose
the inter-scholastic basketball championship.
"We'll give it up this year," he said.
Mr. Ferguson, who seconds Mr. Lou
Adderley as deputy headmaster, pointed out
that their sports programme is seen in three
dimensions viz physical education, intra mural
and inter school.
The first, he said, is for developing good
physical and healthful habits in the children.
"That's for all students and that's mandatory.
Just as the mind needs exercise through
intellectual stimulations, the body needs
exercise through physical stimulations."
It is only then. he said "can we say that we
are truly educators in moulding the whole
person as our hpilosophy states."


The second stage, Mr. Ferguson continued,
offers the opportunity for everyone to
participate in school competition. This is
broken up into house sports. "Everyone is
given the opportunity to freely choose to
participate in any sport that he wants to."
The final stage places the emphasis on
curriculum and it sifts out from the intra
mural and physical education programmes.
"Our programme tries to build true
champions. We try to build winners in the
sense of always doing your best. And, as long
as we continue to be motivated from this base,
by this spirit, you cannot keep us down."
This, Mr. Ferguson said, is the spirit they
want to maintain, that their students will


always be able to walk in the community with
their heads held high, always capable of
saying: 'I am worth something. I contribute to
the uplifting of my fellowmen and my
community. I believe in the dignity of
humanity.'




In senior girls games tomorrow, all
beginning at 4 o'clock, Aquinas College defend
their first place tie against St. John's College:
Government High play L. W. Young, St.
Augustine's College play Prince Williams High.
S A('. G.11S. and Aquinas are all tied for first
with a six and one record.

another game before deciding
whether the squad is worthy of
being sent to the games."
Undoubtedly the national
side were beginning to show
signs of playing as a team
rather than as individuals in
yesterday's game.
Rossi and Whitfield
combined well together at
times on the left flank and
Rodgers and Seville controlled
the midfield with authority for
most of the game.
However, although the build
up was good there was still a
lack of finishing power.
Besides Whitfield's goal the
national side had two other
goals disallowed by referee
Cyril Joseph.

Select Xl goalkeeper Paul Knowles is beaten by Don
Maples' shot but the goal was disallowed by referee Cyril
Joseph. Pintures [INCE.'T \ VAUGHAN


the right and Maples volleyed
the ball nllh.iill.% into the net
only to have the goal
disallowed.
In the 80th minute, Maples
was again robbed when he was
ruled offside after flicking the
ball past the advancing
Knowles into the net.
Rossi uncharacteristically
blasted the ball over the top
from 5 yards in the 52nd
minute and in the 64th minute
his tremendous drive from 15
yards s hit the post with
Knowles clearly beaten
At the other end the Select
XI came perilously close to
scoring in the 10th minute
when Black's shot hit the post
with goalkeeper Paul Johnson
sprawled on the ground.


Vethekas hit the rebound
from Black's shot but Johnson
had managed to get back into
the goalmouth and grasped the
ball. which seemed destined for
the back Iof the net. with a full
length dive across the
goalmouth.
Ihe game petered out in the
dying minutes with both sides
looking tired
Dick Wilson national coach,
said after the game: 'The boys
played very well in mv
opinion. Remember it's only
the second time they have
played together as a team.
"We were unlucky not to
score four or five goals. Maples'
goal in the first half was a
beauty. I couldn't believe it
when the retf. disallowed it."
