LeBlanc's arguments as to why IOS funds


By NICKI KELLY
THUE I)DI[ISIO) by the
successors of IOS founder
Bernard Cornfeld to invest
funds in Central and South
America was prompted by a
desire to re-invest in the
countries from which most of
the IOS money had come.
The background surrounding
the involvement of financier
Robert Vesco in the Cornfeld
mutual fund empire, and
subsequent efforts to keep the
investment scheme from
floundering, are outlined in an
affidavit by Mr. Norman P.
LeBlanc, president and director
of The lOS Investment
Program Ltd.
Mr. LeBlanc's affidavit is
part of the voluminous
documentary evidence
submitted by Program in its
efforts to have the Bahamian
courts continue an
interlocutor y injunction
freezing sonic $344 million in
IOS funds held by 26
defendant banks and other
financial companies here and in
other countries.
The injunction expired on
January 31 and was followed
by six days ol hearings which
concluded Thursday before Mr.
Justice James Smith.
Judgment was reserved until
February 13 at 3.30 p.m.
IOS Investment Program is
claiming that it must be
responsible for any monetary,
distribution, since it was the
medium through which
investment in the IOS funds
was made.
WHY FIGHTING
Efforts are being made by
the host governments of
countries in which IOS Funds
are held to have the holdings
liquidated. Program is fighting
this on grounds that it would
infringe the rights of Program
Certilicatc holders and of
Program, and could result in
part of the assets of the Funds
becoming irrevocably forfeited
to State authorities claiming to
have control over or title to
such assets.
Mr. LeBlanc says in his
affidavit that following the

collapse in 1970 of the IOS
empire, control of the iOS
companies had passed by the
autumn of 1971 to two
non -UI.S. subsidiaries of
Interniat ional Controls
Corporation (I1CC) a U.S,
corporation, whose chairman,
chief executive officer and
substantial shareholder rwas
Robert Vesco.
The ICC subsidiaries which
gained control in lOS ltd.
through the purchase of shares
were: ICC Investments Ltd,
III L and Hemisphere Financial
Services Ltd. (IHFS).
Mr. LeBlanc said that some
years previously the Securities
E change CoTinmnus:on had
been concerned about certain
activities of IOS, but in 1967
the dill ,r II between tihe
two parties were the subject of
a formal settlement.
Although ICC( and its
subsidiaries were not parties to
the 1967 settlement and had
no connection whatsoever with
IOS at that time, the SIt
suggested that the acquisition
of control of lOS constituted a
breach of the 1967 settlement.
SUBSIDIARIES
Although ICC was advised
this was not so, it nevertheless
decided that it was in its best
interests to dispose of its
subsidiaries.
On March 31, 1972, it
disposed of its shares in IlL
and HFS to Kilmorey
Investments Ltd., a company
then 'controlled by Mr.
Ulrich Strickler and Stanler
Graze.
All the men, except for Mr
Graze, were already directors
of IOS Ltd, Mr. Graze was
investment advsier to all the
funds.
In -ffect therefore, Mr.
LeBlanc said, "control of lOS
Ltd. passed to its own
management ."
Mr. Vesco resigned from the
positions of chairman and
director of IOS Ltd., but
continued to act as a
consultant to that company
until the end of 1972.
Shortly before the sale of
HIL and HFS to Kilmorey.
these two companies
transferred their investments in
Value Capital and International
Bancorp Ltd. to International
Controls Corporation.
(Value Capital represented
the insurance, real estate and


natural resources holdings of
1OS. Bancorp represented the
Banking interests ,,of 1()S.

control of Value Capital was

LeBlanrc says he has no
conl nec tion.
(It has been reported that
Value Capital was sold to
Bahamian businessmen S dine
Carroll. Percy V. Munniegs and
George W, McKinnes. who are
also invohed in the purchase ot
General Batui ntan Companies,
which Mr. LeBlanc controlled

that Iaino has the right

be exercised.
STILL (ONTRO LS
The IeBlanc affidavit stated
that Bancorp remained a
subsidiary of Global Financial
and the parent company of
Bahamas Commonwealth Bank
until earlier this month.
(It is understood that the
same Bahamian group was also
interested in the purchase of
International Bancorp .
Value Capital is the parent
company of Program, which
has brought the injunction
action.
According to Mr. LeBlanc.
he remains president and a
director of Program in order to
effect, if possible, the aims of
the company, but he has no
financial interest in Program.

July 1972 Mr. Graze disposed

First there was the need to

that a large part ot ttf I unds

Third, there was an urgent
need to prune drastically the

LeBlanc said.
It was felt that, if pt!icies on

con trol.
"It is clearly intended to be.
and is, implicit in this part of
the defendants' affidavit that
,,'r. Vesco and I have been
engaged in misappropriating
the assets of lOS Funds, and
are using these proceedings for
the purpose of musappropri-
atiig further assets from these
funds.
"In plain words we are
accused of having looted these
Funds and on an intention to
go on doing so," Mr. LeBlanc
de cleared.
1\\O1'- \T
"I wish to state, in the
clearest possible terms, that
these extravagant and
damaging accusations are
wholly without foundation,
and that I and Mr. Vesco are
wholly innocent of the charge
so laid against us," he said in
his affidavit.
He noted that as the result
oh a preliminary hearing in


New York last year, the SEC
had dropped its charge of
"looting" monies which were
"spirited" away.
In other words, Mr. LeBlanc
contended, "the evidence of
the SEC itself forced the SEC
to abandon the allegation of
"looting or "spiriting away"
which was scarcely surprising
since all the assets which the
defendants were accused of
looting are there for all to see,
and held to the account of the
Funds "
Furthermore. Mr. LeBlanc
said. the presiding judge
subsequent made it plain that
he would make no preliminary
finding that the defendants had
looted the assets oi the Funds.
Mr. LeBlanc also thought to
the court's attention that an
examination of the structure of
the IOS companies would show
that neither he nor Mr. Vesco
was in control of the Venture
Fund or in control of the lOS
complex as alleged.
He said that when the
present case came to trial, it
the accusations had not been
abandoned by then. he would
be able to call evidence "and to
refute completely these
accusations which are without
foundation."

Prison, Fox Hill, brings to two
the number of prisoners now at

A Home Affairs spokesman
reported yesterday that
Livingstone Sands, in prison on
an 18-months stealing and
housebreaking sentence,
escaped on Monday.
But police have failed to
capture him and another
escapee, at large since August
last year.
Informed sources have
reported that 20-year-old Errol
Dean, five feet seven inches in
height and of medium build
with small scars on both sides
of his face, is still at large.
The hunt for Dean began on
August 30, last year when he
walked outside of the Central
Police Station building after
discovering that the door to his
cell had been left unlocked.
At the time, officers were
reportedly making a transfer of
prisoners. Dean had been
arrested on a shopbreaking and
stealing charge at the time.

ST. GEORGES


The tiny spice


island of Grenada remained in the grip
of a mounting political and economic
crisis today, two days after it'
independence from Great Britain.
Prime Minister Eric Gairy scheduled
a Cabinet meeting Monday to "deal
fully" with the crisis, which has
virtually paralyzed the island. But
Gairy stopped short of saying he
would declare a state of emergency.
At a news conference, Gairy
claimed that his police had uncovered
a plot by the New Jewel Movement, a


democratic socialist opposition group,
to assassinate him in the washroom of
a nightclub.
A leader of the movement, Maurice
Bishop, was released from jail Friday
on $125. Bishop was arrested
Wednesday night, minutes before
independence celebrations began, on
charges of illegal possession of a
weapon and ammunition.
The Jewel Movement has been
cooperating with other anti-Gairy
groups, including the united front of
business, labour and religious leaders


in an effort to topple the Gairy
government.
In a courthouse interview, Bishop
denounced conditions at Fort George,
a historic fort overlooking the capitol
building, where he was held in a small
cell.
The 29-year-old London-trained
lawyer said conditions at the fort were
"terrible. The only sleeping is on th.,
bare floor," he said.
But he said police did not beat him
during his two-day confinement.

TEL AVIV Israeli Premier
Golda Meir says her country
will not withdraw from Syrian
territory on the Golan Heights
held before the October war.
Mrs. Meir on Friday told
Israeli settlers in the area that
the heights are an "inseparable
part of Israel," according to
the Israeli state radio.
The settlers have expressed
concern that some of the
Heights would be returned to
the Arabs as part of a troop
disengagement pact with Syria.
Newspaper reports said that
Israel would consider
withdrawing one to three miles
behind the lines set after the
1967 war.
Israel has expressed
willingness to return 300
square miles of Syrian territory
captured %when Isreali
armouired units drove beyond
the heights to within 22 miles
of Damascus last October
Meanwhile, Israeli Foreign
Minister Abba Fban said that
no progress has been made on
troop disengagement on the
Sy rian front. Syria has
demanded that Israel agree on
a withdrawal plan from all
Arab lands before tal'.ing
about the disengagement issue.
A Cairo newspaper reported
today that Arab leaders were
considering a summit meeting
in a few days on "the
probabilities of disengaging
Syrian and Israeli troops on the
Golan Heights."
The newspaper Akhbar h1i

conference would he held. It
indicated that Egypt's

Freeport is impressive


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
FREEPORT, January 28th:- I am visiting Freeport briefly for
the first time in several years.
A few days ago a Bahamian businessman, who is located in
Freeport, visited me at my hotel in Coral Gables. He told me that
he had been in Nassau a few days earlier and "got out as quickly
as possible."
This young man was born and grew up in New Providence and
so I asked him why he felt that way about Nassau.
"It is dirty, he said.
When I go back to Nassau these days I find myself feeling the
same way.
Bay Street looks like a honky-tonk town and almost every day
someone seems to start a new garbage dump on the roadside on
country highways and lanes in the island.
I understood what my Nassau friend was talking about when
he said he wanted to get back to Freeport because it was so clean.
This place is clean and beautifully landscaped. It is evident that
the people of Freeport take pride in their town.
** 4*******
Just as I was leaving the hotel for the airport this afternoon I
received a copy of The Tribune through the mail.
It is. dated January 23rd. In it were two stories from which I
will quote briefly.
Page ten of this issue was devoted to "Hot Seat", a panel on
which eight men and women took their turns to be questioned by
a young audience on issues of the day.
The Hon. Dr. Doris Johnson, President of the Senate, was first
on the Hot Seat.
"When posed a question as to how to stem the rising crime
rate," the report stated, "the Senator denied that there was
necessarily a rise in the crime rate, drug abuse, etc. which she lay
in the lap of the press."
The report then quoted her as saying: "There is a way of staging
situations to get information in to the press."
4*4***** *
On page one of the same issue of The Tribune appeared a
report of answers given to questions in the House of Assembly by
Minister of Home Affairs Darrell Rolle.
The news report appeared under the heading: "Jail Over Full,
House Told" and read. "Fox Hill prison is seriously overcrowded
and at present houses more than a third the number of prisoners
than it should.
"In answer to questions put by Clarence Town representative
Michael Lightboum (Ind.), Mr. Rolle said that the normal
capacity of the prison was 548, but as of January 14th this year,
the number of prisoners was 736."
Three hundred and fifty nine of this total were Haitians
awaiting deportation, the report stated.
The Haitian population of the prison has been very large for
many years now and so this figure must not be taken as easing the
crime situation in the Bahamas today.

Incidentally, there were only five murders....three Americans
and two Bahamians...and other crimes of violence in Nassau
during the last month.
There were three bank robberies at Freeport during the past
two weeks. And there were several cases of rape in Nassau and
Freeport during this period.
But apparently Senator Johnson does not consider these events
of any great importance and that they should not give us any
cause for concern.

This comment by the Senator was extraordinary because "Hot
Seat" was a feature of Mental Health Week in which an effort was
being made to find means of checking the growth of alcoholism,
drug abuse and the resultant increase in the crime rate in the
islands.
Maybe the learned Senator would now like to say that her
remarks were misquoted by the Press.
Amusing....what?

I am sorry to have to do this but in the interests of the
historical record I must correct a statement made in a news story
.In this issue of The Tribune.
- Reporting the lease of the Montagu Hotel by a film group the
Writer of the story stated that "the Montagu was built by
Britain's Sir Billy Butlin in 1925."
I have no way of checking on the date the Montagu was built
but it sounds right. But this hotel was not built by Billy Butlin.
It was built by a Bahamian company organized by Albert
Cohen, a New York exporter who was the agent for most of the
business men in Nassau.
Mr. Cohen promoted the construction of the hotel because
Frank Munson, who built the British Colonial Hotel after the old
wooden Colonial built by H.M. Flagler at the turn of the century,
was destroyed by fire. He barred Jews from this hotel.
Frank Munson was a rank racist. He barred Jews from all his
organizations. Coloured people were, of course, excluded but in
his offices in New York he had an all white staff. He refused to
hire coloured men even in jobs such as elevator operators that
were then being given to coloured men in the U.S.
Billy Butlin did not come on the scene until after the second
world war when he sunk two million pounds of English investors
money in a Billy Butlin Camp at West End, Grand Bahama. Butlin
had these camps in many places and they were all spectacularly
successful.
For many reasons, which I will not discuss in this article, this
camp was a complete failure....the first and only Billy Butlin
Camp to fail.
I will tell you an amusing story about this camp to give you an
idea of how badly this whole affair was managed from the start.
The day it opened hundreds of people were flown in from
Nassau and the U.S. for the ceremony. It was a terrible day
because the whole water system failed to function and the guests'


were parched for thirst.
At the time the late Herman Pyfrom was Commissioner at the
island. He told me the reason for the failure of the plumbing.
He said that some time after this incident took place the
engineer in charge of plumbing installations at the hotel was
brought before his court on a summons from a court in England.
This man had left his wife. She had taken him to a court in
England and the Magistrate had ordered him to pay her a certain
amount of money every week. Then he disappeared without
making any payments. They finally traced him to Grand Bahama
and the court here was asked to collect this money from him.
On the summons from England the occupation of this mani,
who had bluffed his way into a job as chief plumber on this major
operation, was listed as COOK!
A terrible lot of crookedness went on in connection with this
undertaking. That is why it cost so much and that is why it failed
before it got properly started.
The Billy Butlin Camp was finally bought by another company
and formed the basis for the present-day Grand Bahama Hotel at
West End.
It was a long time after this fiasco that Billy Butlin bought-the
Montagu.
I think this hotel passed through several hands during the panic
after the second world war when it was feared that the pound
might collapse before Butlin took it over.

NO POLICY


HUMOUR AND WIT are welcome, ingredients for relief in
the serious game of politics and the business of governing.
It is a sign of maturity when individuals can laugh at
themselves and it is also a sign of maturity when a nation
can see the humour that sometimes exists even in the most
serious situations.
But humour and wit cannot be substitutes for serious
consideration of a nation's problems and straight answers
from those who are responsible for dealing with those
problems.
Just the other day the Prime Minister was being
interviewed by a foreign news medium and when he was
asked about the rising rate of crime in the Bahamas he
attempted to avoid the issue by blaming it all on the
Opposition and on election violence. If that was intended
to be humourous then it showed that the Prime Minister is
capable of a very sick brand of humour. If he intended that
statement to be taken seriously then he was being
downright dishonest..
Mr. Pindling has been Premier or Prime Minister of this
country now for seven years and even if he did not know
certain things instinctively he should have learned by these
years of experience. One of the things Mr. Pindling has not
learned is the value of straight answers. He depends too
much on evasions, half-truths, slick replies and sometimes
even no replies at all.
It appears that in the whole question of the Cuban
fishing vessels and the broader implications of that for the
defence of our territorial integrity and our fishing grounds
Mr. Pindling is once again being less than straightforward.
In the House of Assembly this week Mr. Pindling tried to
hide behind the Constitutional provisions which happily
exist to protect the Police from undue political influence,
interference and manipulation.
The fact that those provisions exist do not exonerate the
Government from its overall responsibility for internal and
external security and the maintenance of law and order in
the country. Mr. Pindling should know the difference
between exercising that responsibility and what would in
fact constitute the kind of unhealthy interference that the
Constitution elaborately seeks to avoid.
The country is fortunate in having as its Commissioner of
Police a man who is competent, intelligent and who inspires
the confidence of the public. There is no doubt that the
Commissioner also recognizes the difference between
co-operation and communication with the Government and
what would amount to unconstitutional subversion of his
independence.
The whole question of the Cuban fishing vessels and anm
possible threat to our national interests and integrity
cannot by any stretch of the imagination be regarded as
routine day-to-day matters for the Police. It is
inconceivable that the Commissioner would not have kept
the Government fully in the picture with regard to
the recent infringements by Cuban fishing vessels at Long
Island. It is also inconceivable that he would have regarded
Government advice and assistance in this episode as undue
interference in the day-to-day operation of the Force.
The whole matter involves serious international
considerations and the Prime Minister is again fully aware
of this. The Constitution must be read with sense and if it is
read with sense it would be obvious that there is nothing
which says the Government must remain aloof from an

INDEPENDENCE
GIFTS


WHAT gifts were presented
to the Bahamas on its
Independence last year?
The question was put in the
House yesterday by Clarence
Town representative Michael
Lightbourn (Ind.), who has
asked the Prime Minister to list
all the countries presenting
gifts and the nature of these
gifts.

Mr. Lightbourn also wants
to know where the gifts are
now located.


Cuban Foreign Minister


informing him of the arrests and the seizure of the boats.
Furthermore, the Cubas were given permission to send a
delegation to Nassau to examine with Bahamian authorities
the charges brought against their nationals. All of which, of
course, is quite proper in dealing with an incident of this
nature.
One happy result of the diplomacy surrounding the
incident was the undertaking given by the Cuban
Government that it would not support Cuban nationals in
violating the sovereignty of the Bahamas by fishing in "the
exclusive fishing zone"of the Bahamas. That does not lay to
rest the question of disputed fishing grounds but it does
diminish the possibility of a dangerous confrontation
within our territorial limits.
In the light of all this it's very difficult to understand
why Mr. Pindling would continue to use evasive tactics such
as he did in the House of Assembly this week. The
public has a right to know the facts surrounding incidents
such as this and certainly the elected representatives of the
people have a right to know.
He can make all the fun he likes about members of the
Opposition but he should not rob the Bahamian people of
straight answers merely because he happens to dislike the
individuals who seek answers to important questions in the
name of the people.

Mr. Pindling has finally come around to admitting that
his million-dollar fleet is inadequate for performing their
expected functions. The Opposition has been saying this all
along. If the experienced Bahamian officers who man these
vessels do not have the confidence in these vessels to
negotiate a rough passage then that is not the fault of the
Police but of the Government which is responsible for
providing them with the equipment they need to do their
duty.
Perhaps in the months ahead Mr. Pindling will come
around to admitting what the Leader of the Opposition,
Mr. Kendal Isaacs, suspects and that is that at this
moment the Government of this independent Bahamas has
no firm policy and no concrete plans for the defence of the
country and the protection of our fishing grounds.

Eat and Grow Younger


Low-protein diet unwise, &

can be dangerous to health

By LELORD KORDEL I -47;
Number Seven of a Series /
I am not an advocate of vegetarianism. However, I M-
realize there exist strong religious convictions which re-
concile thousands of persons to a meatless diet. And I )
have no intention of attempting to convert them to a 1'
meat diet (although I shall suggest foods that can increase / ,I -
the amount of high-protein in such a diet without ma- s.- ,
terially increasing the bulk).


diets.
Generally speaking, vegetari-
ans fall into three classes: The
first group includes those who
live mostly on fruits and nuts.
and regard all animal food as
physically degenerating a n d
morally debasing.
The second group objects to
eating animal flesh, either for
religious or moral reasons, but
includes all vegetable foods, in
addition to fruits and nuts. The
third group is composed of diet-
ers known as "lacto-vegetari-
ans," that is, they are permitted
all vegetable foods plus milk.
milk products and eggs. al-
though no animal flesh, either
because of sentimental reasons
or because of a false notion that
a meatless diet makes for bet-
ter health.
LARGE QUANTITIES NEEDED
In the first two groups--those
eating nothing except fruits and
nuts, and those eating these
foods together with all vege-
tables enormous quantities of
plant foods must be consumed
to provide even a minimum of
the body's daily protein require-
ment. After a time, the human
digestive tract is likely to have
trouble taking care of so much

DEAR ABBY: I am a 19-year-old girl. I don't mean to
brag, but people have told me I am very pretty and have a
good personality.
I have never had sex with anybody. I am saving myself
for marriage. Some fellows have tried to talk me out of it,
but so far I've managed to stay pure.
I recently met a fellow [241 who told me that I am the
kind of girl he would like to marry, but before he gets
serious with me I will have to have sex with him because
sex is important to him, and he wants to be sure I can
satisfy his sexual demands.
I like this fellow more than any I've ever dated, but I
don't want to give in. On the other hand, I'm afraid if I
don't, he'll drop me. What should I do?

have to be satisfied, too. One of them is your own self-
respect. Ain feeling as you do about saving yourself for
marriage, if he doesn't want to accept it, he's not for you. I
have an idea he may not drop you. But if he does, you
could be lucky.

DEAR ABBY: I own an apartment building. One of my
tenants is a retired school teacher. He is a proper gentle-
man and if anyone says "hell" in front of him, he raises
his eyebrows and says, "Please, I do not tolerate
profanity."
Well, a young newlywed couple has the apartment next
to this old gentleman, and they use a lot of four-letter
words in their conversations. Naturally, it's a source of
great annoyance to this gentleman, and he complains to me
daily about it.
I have told the newlyweds not to talk so loud, and to
cut out the four-letter words, but it hasn't done any good.
The newlyweds claim this old man must have his ear to the
wall because they talk in normal voices and do not shout.
So what should I do! LANDLORD
DEAR LANDLORD: YOU be the judge. Ask the com-
plainer if you may visit his apartment and learn for your-
self whether the neighbors are out of line--or if HE is.

DEAR ABBY: My husband died suddenly three months
ago. Last month was our 36th wedding anniversary. I didn't
receive one gift or anniversary card from any of our
friends who always used to remember us on that occasion.
I felt terribly let down and hurt.
I have been told that when your mate dies, you no
longer have a wedding anniversary. It that true?
It seems you are treated entirely different after you
lose your mate. You suddenly become a third wheel-un-
wanted and unnecessary.
What do you think? ALONE AND LONELY


DEAR ALONE: When one's mate dies, the we
anniversaries cease. Your friends probably felt that se
gifts or cards would have revived memories of past
versaries, which could conceivably sadden you, sine
are now alone.
However, instead of ignoring the occasion, it
have been a kindness for some friends to have invite
out on that day.
DEAR ABBY: Minm i a problem to end all problem
am 35, and Ira is 41. ',e'vc, been living together foi
years and three months. We had a big fight last week
I kicked him out. I told Sybil my best friendly about

married! I didn't know a thing about it. Ira came t
me and I thought he came to make up with me becau
made love. It was just like old times. I guess he co

That night Sybil came over and said she and Ira
married. I didn't believe her and called her a liar. An:
the next day Ira came over and said it was true. HI
said he was drunk when he married her, but he still
me. I know this sounds crazy, but I love him, too. W
long together. Sybil told me that Ira really loved M11
she didn't really want him, she just married him to

VATICAN CITY (All) Roman
Catholics will be questioned less
about sex and more about paying
taxes b. priests hearing confession
under a new Vatican ritual.
A document on the sacrament of
penance rejects most of the changes
proposed hy bishops and
theologians in recent years. But it
shifts the stress of the entire
confession rite from individual
aspects of sin to social ones.
It also allows for the elimination
of the boxlike confessional booth
which St. Charles Borromeo,
Arclbishop of Milan. introduced in
the church in the 16th century. The
document repealed a centuries-old
ruling that made the booth
conmpulsor\ for priests hearing
c,,nfessions from women.
I le document, dated last Dec. 2,
was released Thursday by the
Vatican. Ilowever, copies were sent
to bishops around the world, some
of whom made it public
Wednesday .
"Do you pay taxes?" This
question is likely to be asked more
and more often by confessors,
according to Msgr. (;ilberto

congregationn for D)ivine Cult, who

BEVERLY HILLS,
(alifornia Groucho Marx
responded sentimentally to
news that he would be awarded
a special Oscar at the Motion
Picture Academy Awards April
2.

"I only wish that Harpo and
Chico could be here to share
it," the comedian said. Then he
added reflectively: "No if
only Minnie were here."
Minnie Marx was the
legendary matriarch of the
performing family and
Groucho remarked: "None of
us would have amounted to

anything if it hadn't been for
her.
"What a woman she was!
She said that Sam, her
husband, could cough all night
and she wouldn't wake up. But
if one her sons coughed just
once, she was awake
immediately."
The Academy board of
governors this week voted
Marx the award for "his
brilliant creativity and for the
unequalled achievements of the
Marx brothers in the art of
motion picture comedy."
Will Groucho appear at the
Los Angeles music centre to
claim the Oscar?
"Certainly," he said. "Unless
they just want to shove it
under the door."
Groucho is the remaining
member of the zany trio whose
comedies of the 1930s are
cherished by each new
generation. Two other brothers
are alive: Zeppo, who played
the romantic interest in the
early films, and Gummo, who
managed the team.
At 83, Groucho has
necessarily slowed his pace.
His walk is deliberate, the
quips come less rapidly. But he
is as unregenerate as ever,
making innocently lascivious
remarks to pretty women and
continuing his long-time
warfare with inattentive
waiters.
He recently demanded faster
service at a hotel where he has
been eating for 40 years. "1
only have two hands," the
waiter sntapped.
"Did you ever see anybody
with three hands?" Groucho
replied.
The comedian spends much
of Kis time at his Beverly Hills
home. He reads a great deal
and is enjoying a new book
about his idol, Harry Truman.
He watches television,
especially "All in the Family,"
"Maude," and "Sanford and
Son," and he follows the news.
He is admittedly enjoying the
problems of Richard Nixon, a
long-time hate.
Will Groucho perform again?
"If you mean concerts like
the ones 1 did last year no.
I'll do the Merv Griffin show
and I'll appear with Johnny
Carson if he would tape in the
afternoon. My doctor doesn't
want me to stay up till 2 am."
He leads an active social life,
often going to film previews.
He went to the home of
Plamboy Hugh Hefner to watch
the'Muhammad Ali-Joe Frazier
fight ("They're both washed
up they'd get licked by
Foreman.").
Even without performing,
Groucho earns a handsome
income. His manager,
red-haired Erin Fleming, whom
Groucho describes as "the
woman love," reports that he
collected $250,000 in 1973
from endorsements, record
albums, merchandise and other
sources (AP)


evening 8.30. No one under 17
will be admitted.
Starts Wednesday, "Duel of
the Iron Fists" plus "The
House That Dripped Blood"
matinee continuous from 1:45,
evening 8.30. No one under 17
will be admitted.
"The House That Dripped
Blood" tells the stories of five
strange and gory happenings
that occur in a country house.
In the first story, "Method
for Murder," film star Paul
Henderson, played by John
Pertwee disappears and a
detective, John Bennett is
called in to investigate. He is
the first person to discover that
it has a strange record of tragic
tenancy.
ft is found out that
hortor-story writer Charles
Hillyer, played by Denhold
Elliott and his wife Alice, acted
by Joanna Dunham had rented
it yea,-s before.
There, the story writer had
created a new villian,
Dominick, an insane strangler
who roams the countryside
looking for victims.
As Charles becomes obsessed
to his writing, his character
becomes real to him.
His wife, Joanna Dunham,
persuades him to seek
psychiatric treatment and he
does so but hallucinations
continue to occur and during
one experience, he realizes he
had actually been strangling his
wife.
Then when he goes to his
psychiatrist again, he awakens
in the office to find his doctor
dead from strangulation.


Detective Ha!loway also
comes across two other cases,
aptly titled 'The Coak" and
"-Framework Story". He


eventually finds put the real
secret of the heuse and what
causes its effects on its tenants
after staying there himself.


In the second story,
"Waxworks," the detective
learns of another tenant, a
retired stock-broker, Philip
Grayson, played by Peter
Cushing.
While visiting a wax
museum, he is fascinated by
the figure of Salome bearing
the head of John the Baptist
3n a silver tray. His face
resembles an acquaintance he
once knew in and loved by him
and his best friend.
He and his friend fall under
Salome's spell. The proprietor
explains that Salome was
modelled his dead wife, after
she had paid the penalty for
murdering his best friend.
Attempting to break the
spell, he goes back to the
museum to destroy the figure
and finds that his best friend's
head is on the platter. While
passing through a door, he sees
the proprieter weilding an axe
and realises that it was the
proprieter who was the
murderer.
Then the third story,
"Sweets to the Sweet" is
discovered by the detective.
Widower John Reid, played by
Christopher Lee and his
daughter, Chloe Franks, and
her nanny. Nyree Dawn Porter
take the leads.
Reid is cruel to his daughter.
When the nurse buys her a doll,
he throws it into the fire as he
is afraid because she is too
much like his evil dead wife.
Because of her hatred for
her father, evil possesses the
eight year old girl and she reads
about black magic to find a
secret method of harming him.
Such is the case in "Sweets
to the Sweet" with only bad
happenings taking place.

BAHAMAS ELECTRICITY

CORPORATION

NOTICE

FUEL SURCHARGE
A fuel surcharge haIs been added to the
Corporation's tariff to cover the additional costs
arising from tile incrcasei in Iful prices.
Effective from all hillings based upon meter
Readings scheduled to be taken after 31st January
1974 the surcharge will be 0.5 cents per unit. Ihe
surcharge will be shown on( the account as a
separate item below the standard tariff charges.
This surcharge of 0.5 cents covers- the additional
cost of fuel up to the price of S50.00( per long ton
for Automotive I)iesel (il. the Corporation's
principal fuel. The fuel surcharge clause provides
that this amount shall, with thie Minister's consent,
be increased or decreased by lhe amount of 0.046
cents per unit for each increase or decrease of
$1.00 above or beloms 50.00 per long ton.
The surcharge will be fi\ed each month and will
be based upon the fuel price in effect three months
earlier. There is however a restriction in the clause
that limits the increase in any one month to 0.25
cents.
As you are probably very much aware the price
of fuel oil has increased alarmingly over the past
four months. Whereas the fuel surcharge clause was
based upon a fuel price of S50.00, operative 1st.
November 1973, the price at Ist )December
increased to So6230 and the ('orpo)ration has just
been advised that the price from ist January is
$98.76 As a result of the 1st Dlecember increase
the Minister hlas approved surcharge increases of
0.25 cents on 1st March and a further 0.25 cents
on Ist April.
The fuel price increases arise from increases in
'host government take' increases in taxationl
imposed by tihe oil producing countries which.
under the terms of its fuel oil contract, the
Corporation has to bear. I ver since tlie oil
producing countries started increasing taxes more
than three years ago all ul fesupply contracts make
provision for passing on the increases to the
purchaser. If the Corporation did not have a long
term contract the cost of its oil could be
substantially greater and reliability of supplies
could be a problem.
The Corporation very much regrets having to
impose these additional charges on its consumers
but it must recover the additional cost from the
fuel price increases if it is to remain a vaiable
self-supporting concern. In order to minimise the
effects of the increases all consumers are advised to
reduce consumption as much as possible. In the
course of the next few weeks the Corporation will
'publish information on how best to do this.

ANSWERS TO PUZZLE
CLUES ACROSS:
EXPLANATIONS OF MORE
DIFEl( I CLUES
1. I) E TENTION not
detection. "In" a "crime
wave," with "criminals"
temporarily on the
upswing, an alarmed
public is likely to be more
concerned with the
removal "of criminals
especially" from the scene
(i.e.. their I I [ I O 10 \)
than the various
procedures by which they
are booked, merely one of
which is their detection.
6 F:EAT not fear. Whereas
the fear was a justifiable
one in the .1 nii r. .ir .
circumstances of the
"battle line" and will still
be seen to have been so in
later life, FIEAT may
"ell." with the passing of
the years, he seen to have
been pointless when
considered in the context
of life and thus, now.
laughable.
7. POISONS not prisons.
The mysterious workings
of POISONS is more apt
for "special fascination
for an imaginative buo
than the more nmundarne
prisons, so familiarly
presented on TV and in
movie thrillers.
9. RICE not nice. Something
light and .i igeil-l. I ideal]
"suits an elderly person"
and while "a RICE
croquette" falls into that
category, there is no
saying what indigestible.
albeit tasty, ingredients
might be in 'a nice
croquette" that would
make it unsuitable.
I 1 DID not hid "One
might," certainly, "he
amused" by the idea of
the "police" Jliieci.rti
spreading their net to
catch "a counterfeiter"
.whlic literally he "DIl) his
forgeries in a cellar under
a police station." The
ludicrousness of the
situation is very weak, if
the "forgeiies" were
simply hidden there and.
not distributed.
12. LETS not gets. The ease
of "LETS one into" thIem
is more suitable under the
circumstances of havingg
a title" than gets, which
suggests only with some
difficulty,
15. FAME not name. 1is
FAME (i.e., reputation)
certainly, since it applies
to him personally. Ilis
name is not such a
personal asset, since if it
were, say, John Smith, ihe
could be confused with
others of the same name
Game is too vague.
18. REWARD not regard. The
"cynic's" observation is,
in effect, a rebuttal of the
maxim 'Hlonesty is the
best policy' so far as it
concerns "politicians."
whose success is measured
by the offices they attain
(i.e.. the RIWARD of
position and power)
rather than public regard.
20 IIORSE not house.
"Expect is to be accurate"
is more apt of his IHORSI
one single item. A
house is normally made
part of its setting and in
such a landscape, an


"artist" is allowed certain
freedom or licence to add
imaginative touches to the
scene, in which case it is
not an "accurate"
duplication.
21 DEJECTED not rejected.
Certainly notice that he's
"feeling DEJECTED)," but
only a psychologist coult
tell "if" he were "feeling
rejected." since it would
not be manifest on the
conscious level
CLUES DOWN:
2 TRAINERS not trainees.
The clue is better suited
to TRAINERS who
ac q u i re' their
're put a tions as
FRAINERS." which they
remain and these are
"often hard to shake off.'
But trainees are not
trainees forever, so that
"reputations" acquired
"as trainees" are usually
"quickly" forgotten when
they have completed their
courses ind are
acknowledged ciaduates.
3. TYPE not tape. A tape
recorder can be whispered
into, if necessary and
played back through an
ear piece, but the sound
of a TYPI -writer is
very hard to muffle and it
may well "disturb light
sleepers in an adjacent
apartment." if used "at
midnight."
4 HOSTESS not hostels. A
IIOSTESS "by people
who 'v e e n o ye d
themselves": hostels more
"by people who've" been
well fed and comfortable
in them, their enjoyment
usually having been had
outside of the hostels.
5 POLITE not police.
POLITE is favoured for
the clue phrase, "when a
reply is called for." On "a
police warning," no
"reply is" actually "called
for" to the "warning"
itself.
8. FILM not firm. The FILM
itself "does poorly," but
it is the products of the
Iirnn ,s which may "do
poorly," the financial
success of the firm itself
not being in question.
14 IIHURRY not harry. "Who
continually, in fact,
"lIt'RRY him" because,
if "'dull-witted,'" he is
bound to be aggravatingly
slow W'homr he considers
to "'harr, him," though,
in fact. they are merely
"-llRRYing him."

I SAI 1 not cafe. Since
everything "on" a
"backdrop" is customarily
paint ic in a very free
stlle, "'rudely." is more
apt when applied to the
line mechanism, dials,
etc on a SAFE, relatively
speaking, when contrasted
with the exterior of a
cafe,


LeBLANC'S ARGUMENTS


From Page 1
LeBlanc, alleging violation of
U.S. Securities laws in the
matter of IOS.
LIQUIDATION
Following this, it was felt by
all those concerned with lOS
that the only course open was
to liquidate. Dr. Meissner
however, did not agree. lHe
entered into negotiations with
the Luxecimbourg Banking
(Coimiissionler with a view to
obtaining the release ot cash ito
effect redemptions already in
the pipeline and to pas accrued
management fees to enable the
ordinary cost of administration
to be met and to obtain Iis
assistance in implementing the
plan for reorganizing the
tFunds.
It was Dr. Meissner's hope
that the Luxembourg Banking
('mmissioner would use his
influence to get the S(EC to
withdraw the complaints
against the Funds.
D)r. Messner however, was
arrested on June 28. 1)72
when he went to Luxembourg
for a meeting to which he had
been invited to iron out the
final details of the
negotiations.
Immediately after his arrest
by the 1. uxembourg


authorities, an announcement
was made by the regulatory
auLthcorities that the IOS Funds
were to be liquidated, Mr.
LeBlanc said.
"Flrom then on, it was
recognized that there was no
alternative to liquidation of the
IOS complex, including the
Funds."
But when efforts were made
for the orderly liquidation of
the Funds in Ontario, Canada,
it was learned that under
Ontario law the effect of
dissolution of Transglobal
Financial Services Ltd. was
that its assets reverted to the
(rown.
concernedd that this would
deprive shareholders of their
rights. Iransglobal's directors
decided to appeal against the
cancellation of the company's
charter.
These appeals however were
uitisucIcessful.

yesterday's game were forced
into a playoff for who runs
third and fourth. In the
championship playoffs which
begin next week, the first place
Aces meet the fourth place
team and the second place St.

It would have been easy for
either team to choose a
position so that the playoffs
might have begun as scheduled
on Monday, but neither would
like to meet the Aces in the
first round of the best of three
days/games.
They figure they stand a

By IVAN JOHNSON
THE BAHAMAS Lawn
Tennis Association's 12th
national championships will be
staged this year at the Hyatt
Emerald Beach Courts.
The tournament will be
staged over three weekends,
beginning on Friday,
Feb 22 and ending with the
finals on Sunday March 10.
Fritz Schunck, present
holder of the men's singles title
and former Sonesta Beach
Hotel pro is not expected to
defend his title since he has
now taken up a new
appointment in the States.
Schunck's absence leaves the
way clear for Leo Rolle,
Nassau's No. I player to clinch
his fifth title.
Rolle's main competition
will come from Bertram
Knowles, Anthony Munnings
and possibly John Antonas
who recently advanced to the
quarter finals in the $12,500
Bahamas International
Tourney at the Ocean Club,
Paradise Island.
Antonas might be able to
leave his studies at the
University of Alabama to take
part in the tourney.
In the ladies singles Emerald
Beach pro, Vicky Knowles is
favourite to defend her title
successfully for the sixth
straight year.
Mrs. Knowles' main threat
will be Jane Wiberg, a bustling
industrious player whose
determination makes up for
her lack of natural ability.
Other events included in the
tourney are men's doubles,
ladies singles and a men's
senior event.

Sue upsets

no. 4 seed
SUE SERGEANT caused
the first upset in the Ladies
Nassau squash championship
last week when she defeated
the No.4 seed Diane Nguyen
3-2.
"Competition in the tourney
is expected to be tough this
year," said tourney organiser
and men's No.3 seed Keith
Parker.
Seeded players will be hard
to beat. Top seeds Bob
Montgomery and Tony
Lancaster will be hard pressed
by fast improving Eddie
Bostwick. No.5 seed, veteren
Ivern Davis, No.4 seed, Keith
Parker and the No.6 seed Eric
Wilkinson.
