RETAIL GASOLINE DEALERS "are getting
restless" as their sixth week of waiting for a change
in the gas price structure draws to a close.
ALGIE DARVILLE, secretary ofl the Petroleum
Dealers Association, today noted that Deputy Prime
Minister and Minister of Finance Arthur D. Hanna has
had the recommendations of the Prices Commission
in his possession for "at least ten days."
The PDA spokesman wondered: "How long does it
take the man to make a decision?"
The Government has been aware at least since
January 7. when the Association met with Mr. Hanna,
that the dealers view "with great concern" what
they consider the retailers' losing position under the
existing price structure. And at least since January

16 Government has been aware that the dealers'
complaints were valid.
NO EFFORT
But, Mr. Darville noted, there has been no effort
by authorities to let the retailers know what is
happening since February 1, when Prices Commission
chairman Neville Adderley told the Association that
new gasoline prices would probably be in effect
within two or three weeks that is, between Feb. 15
and 22.
Mr. Darville said today, however, that he was

He said the dealers are still constantly calling him

"They are getting restless," he commented.

The festival, which made its
debut during the summer of

June and will continue until
the end of August.
Mr. Maynard, in making the
announcement, said the year

of the popular festival.

complaints centre around the
fact that the wholesale price
was allowed to rise 11 cents,
cutting retail mark-ups from
32 percent to 22 percent on
retailers' investment.
HELD VALID
After a series of meetings
the Prices Commission on
Jan. 16 told a PDA delegation
that their complaints were
considered valid, and that the
Commission would
recommend to the Finance
Minister a restructuring of
prices to allow retailers a
higher mark-up.
It was pointed out,
however, that the oil
companies had applied for an
increase in wholesale prices
because of rising prices on the
international oil market. As
Government would prefer to
make just one price revision
covering both retailers' and
wholesalers' requirements,
the Commission said, there
would be some delav in the
reusion taking eff-ct. It was
explained that the
wholesalers' would not need
their increase until the first
shipment of oil arrived in
early or mid-February.


MRS. MARGUERITE
PINDLING, wife of Prime
Minister Lynden 0. Pindling,
made a courtesy call on the
Girls Industrial School
Wednesday morning and was
entertained by songs and
dance by the young girls. A
highlight of the visit was a
straw plaiting session at
which time Mrs. Pindling gave
a quick lesson in the stripping


and plaiting of straw from
coconut fronds. It was an
interesting session for the
girls and Mrs. Pindling offered
a prize to the one who plaits
the longest length of straw by
her next visit. Looking on

LOS ANGELES Singer Bob Dylan,
whose lyrics became both the backdrop
and an impetus to the 1960s protest
movement, has ended his first concert
tour in eight years.
During last night's concert, the son of a
Hibbing, Minnesota, hardware dealer,
remained as much an enigma as ever,
relying on his sometimes cryptic lyrics -
and not the spoken word to
communicate.
Except for introducing his tour
director, Bill Graham, Dylan spoke only
two sentences to the audience of 19.500.
When he came on stage to thunderous
applause, he remarked: "Sure glad to be
here."
At the end of the first set of songs, he
said: "We'll be right back."


members of the 30-man
expedition were airlifted by
helicopter to the top of
Sarisarinama, a 5,500-foot
plateau.
The whole atop
Sarisarinama was first
spotted from the air in
1964. About 600 aerial
photographs taken last
year indicated that trees at
the bottom were more
thickly leaved a deeper
green and about twice the
height of the 50-foot trees
found on the plateau
surface.
Poor weather has plagued
the expedition since it left
Caracas for its base camp at
Erebato, deep in the jungle
about 500 miles to the
south. Saturday was the
first time a low cloud cover
cleared away long enough
for helicopters to ferry men
and equipment to the
plateau.
The Brewer-Carias
brothers and Nott planned
to spend several days at the
bottom of the hole and
exploring about 14 acres of
jungle.
The botanists, zoologists
and ecologists on the
expedition said conditions

Election 'may not help'
NEW YORK The British elections this month "may
not settle anything at all" the New York Journal of
Commerce says.
The business daily said in an editorial: "Even Edward
Heath, who has been extremely inflexible in his approach
to the miners, will have to make major concessions if he
wins the election.
Mr. Wilson will cave in completely. In the meantime,
however, industrial confidence will have fallen further,
many small firms will have gone out of business and profits
for many large companies will be wiped out.
If industry will be investing at all. it will be overseas.
"Industrial strife will continue, and it will be hard enough
to govern Britain at all until the working man is convinced
that the government any government at all is following
policies in his interest.
"The failure of British society to create a bond ot
interest between labour and industry has been responsible
in very large part, for the showing that the U.K. has made
in the industrial world's economic stakes."
The British government announced today a 12 percent
rise in the cost of living last year, the biggest annual
increase since 1947. Food prices jumped 20 per cent, the
sharpest hike since the Korean War.
The announcement by the Department of Employment
is bound to be used by the opposition's campaign for the

EDITORIAL Sorry folks!


By ETIENNE DUPUCH
IN THEIL House of Assembly on Wednesday, February 6th
Prime Minister Pindling faced the frightening truth for the first
time when he admitted that the four tiny boats in the Bahamas
navy are unable to protect the fishing grounds of the Bahamas
from intrusion by Cuban and American fishermen.
lie admitted that, even while he was speaking, the government
was aware of the fact that poachers were operating in Bahamian
waters.
According to a report of his speech in The Tribune he
revealed that "at this precise moment in time" foreign fishing
vessels were known to be within the three-mile territorial limit at
Great lsaacs Cay and within the 12-mile zone off Southern
Andros.
The excuse lie gave for the delay of the million dollar navy in
reaching Long Island to seize eight Cuban boats reported fishing
off that island was that the Bahamas navy was too puny to breast
heavy seas running in the passage around Ragged Island which
they would have to cross to reach the place where the Cuban
boats were located.
The Cuban boats were big enough to reach the fishing grounds,
Florida T.V. and news men were able to reach the spot but the
Bahamas navy had to stay in port because of heavy seas ... so the
Prime Minister said anyway.
There might also have been another ... and more valid ...
excuse, of course.
I lie Prime Minister claimed that the reason for the interest by
Channel IV a Miami T.V. station was the allegation that a
Cuban naval vessel was in Bahamian waters.
The Tribune report stated that Mr. Pindling then outlined the
steps taken by the police to maintain a surveillance of the Cuban
boats until such time as the police vessels could be despatched.
lie said that daily aerial patrols were flown over Long Island
and photographs were taken twice each day. From these
photographs police were able to say how many boats were in the
area and what type they were.
At the time it was ascertained that no Cuban naval vessels were
in the area.

In view of all these precautions taken by the Bahamas navy
before proceeding to the area, would it be more correct to say
that the Bahamas navy hesitated about tackling this situation
until it felt that they were a match for the intruders at Long
Island,.
Light vessels were reported in the area. They were open and
bold in their action ... and the men were having a glorious time.
They even fraternised with Long Island men who visited them on
their boats By the time our navy reached the area ... some oni
rolling seas ... only three vessels were left.
It the government would openly admit that this was the reason
for the navy not reaching the spot in time to seize all eight of the
vessels the public could understand that this was a wise
precaution for our navy to take ... even though it could have been
a humiliating admission for the P.M. to make after all the rosy
promises he made to the people of glorious tunes ahead for them
after independence.
lie may not be ready yet to make this admission but time ...
and coming events ... will force the startling truth on the gullible
Bahamian people.
Just let us face the cold-blooded truth now.
Some time last year one of our naval ships was almost sunk
when it was rammed by a fishing boat out of Miami that was
manned by Cuban crew.
Again last year the Bahamas navy was in a difficult spot when
it found itself greatly outnumbered by Cuban intruders out of
Miami.
A sloop of the Royal Navy arrived on the scene just in time to
do a job the total Bahamas navy might have found it impossible
to do.
Now . eht me remind you of a fact that I warned you about
bhc/ re independence. Theic Royal .Va\my is no longer responsible for
our de'ence, and you may judge from Britain's callous treatment
of the people of Grenada that Britain does not intend to get
involved ini anybody's quarrels but her own in the future.
While this is an awful fact for me to accept ... I can understand
the cleason for this attitude. Britain has reached the point where
shIe has taken all the ingratitude she can absorb from the people
of her forimeri territories. Now, by their own decision, they are on
their own.
And America would be stupid to become involved because
most of the intruders come out of Florida. Nor does she want to
provoke any conflict with the Cuban government.
So now we aie on our own ... and we are unable to adequately
protect out interests from foreignI intrusion.

None of this surprises me. I told you that this would happen ...
now it is here and the government is unable to handle the
situation without support of the Royal navy ... a source of
strength which was scornfully cast aside by a lot of cocky little
men who had no conception of the gravity of the steps they were
taking.
And for what'"

The Prime Minister and especially his little Deputy Arthur
Hianna painted a glorious picture of what independence would


mean to the Bahamian people ... and they swallowed the bait,
"hook, line and sinker "
The Prime Minister declared that from where he sat he could
see a paradise for the Bahamian people in independence.
Now then ... we have independence and what advantages has it
brought us?
Well ... I'll tell you what it has brought us.
We have a little peacock in London. They call him His
Excellency the High Commissioner. This is costing the Bahamian
people money. This is one reason why you are being taxed
heavily today.
We have another peacock in Washington. He occupies a
glorious seat in the U.N. He is little more than a number in this
vast organization.
We have another peacock in Government House. Our own
Governor-General ... the nation's first Governor-General!
And finally we have our puny navy ... and the Prime Minister


Let's co-operate


with our police


EDITOR, The Tribune,
I want to congratulate the
Commissioner of Police and his
staff for the excellent job they
are doing in solving crime. I
think this letter is long
overdue, especially during the
last few months when the
police force came under severe
criticism from the public
some of which is genuine
criticism
However, I wonder if we,
the public, realize that we solve
the majority of crime by giving
information to the police and
when we fail to do so then the
criminal is left free to commit
other crimes. How many of us
with a conscience after seeing a
per-( commit a crime says to
her -If or himself: "I am not
gel.ing involved", or "that's
none of my business", until
that same criminal does
something to a relative of ours?
Later on the caller on
examining his or her
conscience would realize that if
Then the police are contacted
right away with the caller
demanding that something he
done right away!


they had given the police
information to the first crime
that they saw the criminal
committed, he or she may have
been in prison or paid a fine,
which would cause the criminal
to think twice before
committing another crime.
Get with it and let 1974's
slogan be: "Cooperation with
the police will keep crime otf
our streets."
Mr. Commissioner, I endorse
the Press stand that the police
should cooperate with them at
all times. Also since there is a
shortage of men on the police
force don't you think, Mr.
Commissioner, that a public
relations officer should be
appointed to the force to let
the schools and the public
know that this officer or other
officers give lectures
concerning the police force. In
this way a lot of suspicion may
be erased from the minds of
the public and we may get a lot
of response from our yount
people in joining the police
force.


EX-POLICEMAN


DENIES GANDHI ATE EGGS


EDITOR, The Tribune,
In your Tribune of the 9th
February 1974, I read an
article on "Eat and grow
Younger Low Protein diet
unwise and can be dangerous
to health" by Lelord Kordel. It
has been stated in that that
George Bernard Shaw and
Mahatma Gandhi both ate
liberally eggs, milk and cheese.
The statement that Mahatma
Gandhi ate eggs is wholly
incorrect. I am from India and


know it for certain. You might
like to publish the correction
and also bring it to the notice
of the author.

P O( Box N-4596,

Feb. 12, 1974


has indicated that the nation needs a bigger and better force to
protect our waters from intrusion. This will mean a great deal
more taxation.
Has this man any idea what it would cost to build and maintain
a force that would be more than a pop-gun in this highly
explosive area?
Nothing we could build could be equal to the one small Royal
Navy sloop because behind that sloop stood the whole British
Navy.
The Bahamian people would now like the Prime Minister to tell
them of one benefit they have derived from independence. We are
only asking him to give us one example.

The government held out all kinds of visionary hopes to thfe
Bahamian people ... come independence. Nothing definite. ()nl\
visions the Prime Minister saw from wheie lie "sat".
But there was one definite promise. Hie advanced the archipelagic
principle by which the territorial waters and fishing grounds
of the Bahamas would be greatly extended.
The Bahamas has not been able to secure any international
agreement on this point. Nor has the government been able to
negotiate a defence agreement with the U.S. and Britain which
they seemed to think would be easy and simple to arrange.

The Prime Minister gave a weak excuse for the leniency with
which the bold Cubans were treated by the courts in comparisoi
with punishment handed out to Cubans fishing in Americai,
vessels.
Hie seemed to forget that this is the second time that Cuban
vessels out of Cuba have been handled with kid gloves.

Just face the facts, folks, you are in a hell of a spot. I told you
what to expect but, as usual, you chose to ignore my honest
warnings and chose instead to heed the siren calls of your
precious Moses.
Too bad, too sad, too late.

Now I wdl tell you something more. You know that the[
tourist business is in trouble and it is being further threatened b\
the possibility of a strike.
Soon to be revealed if not before this article is published i
the grim fact that Washington has worked out a plan that will
make it possible for banks to carry on the same type of trade inii
the U.S. that forced the off-shore companies to seek a place
outside the jurisdiction of the U.S.
This could be a serious blow to foreign investment activities in
the Bahamas.
Do you realize what that would mean to the shaky prosperity
of the Bahamas?

FOOTNOTE TO HISTORY: The sad and sudden death of Mi.
J. S. Johnson is a great loss to this community. I am sorry I could
not be in Nassau for his funeral but I had a commitment in Coral
Gables that I had to keep.
At this time I feel I should recall the fact that lie was one of
thdie very few white men in the community who backed me when I
organized the Bahamas Democratic League nearly 20 years ago
and white and black men sat down as equals in a political party
for the first time in the history of the colony.
I believe that people today alas, too late now realize that
the B.D.L. could have been the only salvation for the Bahamian
people during this important period of transition in the affairs of
the islands.
On one side a unit in the Old Guard the small political group
charged me with going too far. And their people foolishly
followed their lead. While a small unit among the black people
the P.L.P. accused me of not going far enough.
The result of this combination of shortsightedness on the one
hand, and selfishness, greed and hatred on the other, is what you
see all around you in the Bahamas today.
Too bad. too sad, too late.

THE STORY of McCartney
Enterprises is the story of
growth.
Not the sort of boom
growth we've often seen in the
Bahamas when an enormous
enterprise grow overnight and
then the bubble bursts but
gradual, steady, healthy growth
over the years.
McCartney Enterprises was
born about 25 years ago in a
small building at the corner of
Mount Royal Avenue and
Durham Street. The lot was 50
by 100 and held five cars!
In these early days the
business was solely a body
repair shop and later a service
station was added on.
The business gradually
expanded North over the years
and now is contained in a
whole block on the Western
side of Mount Royal Avenue
from Durham Street on the
South to Clifton Street on the
North and across the road
there is a half block
McCartney Enterprises is
owned by two Bahamian
brothers Charles A and
William A. ("Al") McCartney
and consists of five integrated
businesses
The Tyre and Auto Supplies
is under the management of
Birn Longsworth. This section
of the business boasts one of
the biggest inventory of tyres
in the Bahamas. It also has an
:ncredibly wide range of tyres
from wheel barrow size
through road-grader size.

There's tyres galore at
Mc, Cartney Enterprises


McCartney Enterprises' highly qualified and experienced
mechanics service all makes of cars.


How McCartneys grew


This operation has gown
and expanded over the last five
years at a phenomenal rate due
in part to the superior quality
of the tyres Jumbo made in
England and Remington in the
States sold at competitive
prices.
The tyre business is mainly
wholesale but is also retail.
McCartneys sell tyres to service
stations, construction and


trucking companies and
wholesale and retail buyers.
McCartne s will (and do)
ship merchandise to any of the
Family Islands.
McCartneys also stock auto
supplies and parts for all makes
of cars, batteries and Acme
automotive paints.
Al's brother. Charles, heads
up McCartney's Triple-A
Automotive Sales. This
department looks after body
repairs on all makes of cars and
paintwork.
The Mechanical Service
section does the installation of
tyres, all mechanical repairs,
grease jobs and oil changes.
This department is headed up
by William A. McCartney Jr.
Al's eldest son.
These two last sections
the body shop and the
mechanical service department
should be of special interest to
the average car owner.
The body shop has a training
shop for young men who have
come up through the ranks. In
fact many of the body repair
shops on the Island today are
owned by men who came up
through McCartneys
Service is the bain of many
car owners and Al McCartney
claims that his mechanics are
highly qualified to work on all
cars European and American
and of course the Auto supply
section can supply all the
necessary parts.
For five years McCartneys
had the Fiat dealership which
they later sold.
Thus the mechanics are used
to servicing this make of car.
And, after all. buying a car is
little problem. It is after you've
got the car and something goes
wrong that your problems
begin.
McCartneys Enterprises are
not spread thinly parts and
service is their business and not
the sale of new cars.
They have a pick up and
delivery service no matter how
far you live out of town. Free
estimates are given, if required,
and they also boast a wrecker
service.

McCartneys Texaco Services
Station the gas station
section of the Enterprises is
headed up by Bill Claridge.
This family business also
includes Commonwealth
Textiles in the Star Plaza,
Mackey Street. This is headed
up by the two McCartney
brothers' mother. Mrs. Addie
McCartney, and Cislyn Delaney
(a neice of the McCartney
brothers).
Commonwealth Textiles
specializes in I001 polyester
double knits and all fabrics.
LUke the Tyre Supplies
Commonwealth Textiles boasts
one of the best selection of
first class fabrics in the
Bahamas. The fabric arrives irtn.
Nassau direct from a mill
outlet and Al is in direct
contact with the mill outlet so
as soon as the fabric leaves the
mill it is shipped to
Commonwealth Textiles.
As McCartney Enterprises is
no fly-by-night business so is
Al McCartney no fly-by-night
himself. He has been in
mechanical engineering ever
since he left school.
Upon leaving school he
worked at the R.A.F. station at
Oakes Field and Windsor Field
during the second world war
where he was attached, for
about three years, to the U.S.
post engineers.
After the war Al worked
with civil aviation for a short
while and then opened his own
business at the comer of
Durham Street and Mount
Royal Avenue.
And this brings us to the
beginning of this story.
Al McCartney is married to
the former Eileen Culmer of
Savannah Sound, Eleuthera.
The couple have 4 boys and
one girl; William A. Jr. (22)
heads up the mechanical
service section of McCartney
Enterprises, Barrette (21) is in
medical school in U.W.I..
Lennox (17) is at St. Johns
College, Keith (16) is at
Government ligh and the baby
and only girl of the family,
Tamara (7), attends St.
Andrews School.
These children surely have a
solid inheritance of the value
of the work ethic.

get-to-know each other party. Mrs. Cockwell, chairman of


I


the fair, said that it was just a small way to say "thank
you" to some of the many hard workers who are assisting
her in making this year's fair the grandest ever. Discussing
the registration format are (left to right) Mrs. Cockwell,
Mrs. Carolyn Wardle, secretary of the fund-raising
committee; Mrs. Maude Evans of the Bier Garten stall; Mrs.
Lottie Tynes, Director of the Bahamas Red Cross; Mr.
Denis Caine of the Bier Garten Stall and Mrs. Dorothy

Mrs. Franklyn Wilson.


ItHE BOARD of Directors
of the YMCA of Grand
Bahama has announced that
Mr John T. Kimball has
accepted the appointment of
Campaign Chairman of its
174 Capital Fund I)rive.
A long-time leader of
business and civic activities in
the Grand Bahama community,
the former president and chief
executive officer of the Grand
Bahama Port Authority will
spearhead the drive to raise
funds for a $400,000
devel opm n e n t programme.
which will include an
expansion of the 'Y's present
Freeport facilities and the
extension of 'Y services and
facilities to the scattered
communities of G(;rand Bahama
Island.
Th lie YMCA has experienced
tremendous growth during its
brief eight years of operation
on Grand Bahama, and at peak
periods during the 1973
season, its aquatics, informal
education, teen activities.
youth sports leagues,
miscellaneous and camping
services programmes involved
well ove- 2.000 participants
per week. While programme
participation was stimulating, a
lack of change rooms, shower
and locker facilities, and an
effective control centre
seriously handicapped efforts
to offer proper services to the
community.
The proposed expansion
programme will nrilde these
needed facilities, and will
include proper gymnasium
space for a full slate of indoor
recreational programmes, in
addition to club rooms for
meetings and informal
education progranmmes and
additional office space for a
growing YMCA staff. The
layout and design of the new
facilities will also provide more
effective control of the entire
1' complex.
The programme will also
enable the YMCA to physically


extend its services and
practices to such communities
as light Mile Rock and
Pinder's Point.
Accepting the appointment
of Campaign Chairman of the
'Y's Capital Fund Drive, Mr.
Kimball observed that residents
of Grand Bahama have
developed an active
'community conscience' and he
noted that the strength of this
community conscience will be
expressed in active public
support for the new
development programme being
launched by the Grand Bahama
YMCA.

French countess proves good

During my stay in Buenos Aires, I was a guest at a for-

who raised thoroughbred horses, and on whose estancia

I looked closely at her clear,
fresh skin, her sparkling gray
eyes, and her lustrous dark
brown hair. She could have been
anywhere between 30 and a
youthful 40. Her figure was well-
rounded without being lumpy,
and her carriage was remark-
ably graceful. So I waded in
with my best guess.
"Thirty-three, perhaps. And
surely not more than 35."
She gave me a searching look.
"Yes, I believe you are being
honest. Well, monsieur, last
month I celebrated-yes, that is
the right word, celebrated -
my 53rd birthday! I have a son
as old as you guessed me!"
She called her husband, who
extracted from his wallet a
small, worn photograph and
passed it to me. It was a pic-
ture of a woman, quite evident-
ly a relative of the countess, for
the features showed a marked
resemblance to hers. Yet this
was a much older woman.
"That, Monsieur Kordel," she
said, "was my face five years
ago, before we left France."
Her husband said to me: "My


The average person of middle
age-and many younger people
-exists on a diet woefully de-
ficient on almost every nutrition-
al count (proteins, minerals, vi-
tamins), unless a conscious ef-
fort is made for planned diet.
Small wonder that good looks
and charm are so rare past 40.
And small wonder that this
early loss of vitality and youth-
ful appearance is particularly
true of men, since they need
even greater amounts of the B-
vitamins (paramount factors in
helping your youth stay on the
job) than women. Yet how many
men at this critical period in life
make a conscious effort to guard
against losing the sensations
and appearances of youth in the

aved until now the full story
f the youth-bestowing B-vita-
lins because they enter so fre-
uently into any mention of
diet and good looks."
All the youth-preserving mem-
ers of the B-complex family
re found in varying degrees in
meats, fish, fowl, eggs, skim
iilk, low-fat cheese, green veg-
tables, legumes, whole grains,
berries, melons and fresh fruits.
A generous mention of these
oods belongs in any advice on
'diet and good looks," because
hey are unusually rich sources

Here's what usually happens
when your body is skimped on
riboflavin: Your elbows may be-

coarsen with a quick tendency

of skin disorders. If you sudden-
y develop an abnormally oily
complexion, more than likely
t's because you need more
riboflavin in your diet.

SCHOLARSHIP


FUND IS

LAUNCHED

T H E National Youth
Congress. operating as a
co-ordinating body for the
youth of the Bahamas has
decided to establish a
permanent tribute in honour of
the late Miss Jane Hutcheson, a
former teacher at the
Government High School who
died last year at the age of
twenit three
The project, decided to be
undertaken by the Central
Council of the National Youth
Congress has begun work on
the legal and financial aspect of
this .h.iLa rhip foundation.
Plans are presently being
made for a "grand banquet" to
be held at the Governor's Hall
of the Sheraton British
Colonial Hotel under the
patronage of Prime Minister,
the lion. Lynden 0. Pindling
and Mrs. Pindling and the
parents of Miss Hutcheson.
The event is scheduled to
take place on May 4, starting at
8 30 p.m. The function, a
preliminary phase in the
fund-raising programme, is
expected to raise ten thousand
dollars.
Tickets for this black-tie
event will be on sale shortly.
The Jane Hutcheson
Scholarship Foundation is
intended to benefit the young
worthy Bahamian, capable of
making a contribution to
society but financially
handicapped.

South had won six, and the

The lead was in dummy,
unfortunately for South. If he
were in his own hand, he could
have drawn trumps, crossed to
dummy with a Club, and
discarded his own Club loser
on the King of Diamonds.
There didn't seem much
point in playing out the Clubs,
so South led dummy's King of
Diamonds, which East ruffed
and South over-ruffed He then
played the King of trumps, on
which West discarded the 10 of
Diamonds and dummy a Club.

Then came the point at
which South almost as a matter
of routine, played the Jack of
Spades to extract East's last
trump, but this was also the
point at which West sat and
groaned and grunted for best
part of a minute. Here's why:

West led his singleton Heart
to dummy's 2, East's 10 and
South's Ace. A slightly
depressed South counted up
his tricks: 5 trumps, 2 top
Diamonds, the Ace of Hearts,
and the Ace and King of Clubs.
Total: 10. So he would need to
ruff a couple of Hearts in
dummy to make up his quota.
It was just as well for South
that he was not a very good
player, for the expert would
have devised a way to try to
squeeze East, but he would
have found the cards all wrong,
and would have gone 1 down.
Our South didn't even try to
look that far ahead, and simply
led back a Heart at the second
trick in order to clear the decks
for some ruffing.
West thought it would do
no harm to spend his 9 of
trumps at this stage, so he
ruffed the second Heart, and,
with the possibility in his mind
that East might be void of
Diamonds, led a small
Diamond. South won, and
according to plan, led another
Heart, which he ruffed in
dummy. In order to get back
to his hand, which he ruffed in
dummy. In order to get back
to his hand, he led a small
Diamond from dummy, and
ruffed it. Now he was able to
lead his last Heart, which he
ruffed with dummy's Queen,

DEAR ABBY: Three years ago, when my husband was
58, he had an affair with his secretary. It was no secret,
and all the tongues in this little town were wagging a mile
a minute.
Once I found a motel key in his coat pocket, and he
had the gall to tell me that he got tired driving so he
checked into this motel to take a nap. [Three miles from
home! ]
Last year he had an operation which left him practical-
ly impotent, and since then I couldn't ask for a more
devoted husband. He phones me if he knows he's going to
be half an hour late. He buys me presents, sends me
flowers, and even takes me on business trips, which he
never did before.
Of course I'm enjoying all this, but why in your opinion
has my husband suddenly turned over a new leaf?
WONDERING
DEAR WONDERING: Probably because there's not
much left under the old one.
DEAR ABBY: For years I have cherished the friend-
ship of a very fine woman. She's a lady of character,
intelligence and charm. She is very devout in her religion,
as I am in mine, tho our religions differ vastly.
Lately whenever we are together she tries to convert
me to her religion. I have told her emphatically and repeat-
edly that her efforts to convert me are futile, but she is
persistent.
How can I convince her that she is wasting her time
and trying my patience? I don't want to end our otherwise
pleasant friendship of many years.
SPIRITUALLY SATISFIED
DEAR SATISFIED: Send her this quote:
"I never told my own religion, nor scrutinized
that of another. I never attempted to make a con-
vert, nor wished to change another's creed. I have
ever judged of the religion of others, and by this
test, my dear Madame, I have been satisfied yours
must be an excellent one to have produced a life
of such exemplary virtue and correctness. For it is
in our lives and not from our words that our reli-


His new-found devotion


shouldn't surprise wife


gion must be read."
The above Is a portion of a letter written by Thomas
Jefferson to Mrs. H. Harrison Smith on Aug. 6. 1816.
If your cherished friend Is as intelligent and virtuous as
you say she is, she will get the message and act according-
ly.

Problems? You'll feel better if you get it off your chest.

By CHERRY BETHEL
THE SPONGING Industry, the lifeblood of the Bahanian
people in the late 1800's and early 1900's %'il' be featured at an
exhibition of historical documents at the public Records Office
from Feb. 18 to 22.
Organized by Bahamas Archivist MIrs. Gail Saunders. the
Exhibition will be opened by the Prime Minister, the Hon.
Lynden 0. Pindling at 4 p.m. on Feb. 18.
Included in the exhibits will be photographs 1.. i..iin: the
Sponge Industry as it was in the late 19th and early 20th
centuries, accounts of Sponge voyages and processes, a report on
the world's biggest sponge which was six feet in circumference
and two feet in diameter and weighed 90 pounds when taken
from the water, advertisements showing the people involved.
documents describing the demise of the Industry, record
relating to Sponge Planting, and a J.-iii..,ii.l.n on how the
Industry has been revived in recent venrs


Believed to have been
started by a Frenchman, M.
Gustav Renouard, who was
wrecked in the Bahamas in
1841, the sponge industry was
for many years the most
important local industry and
kept thousands of Bahamians
employed.
From 1906 to 1910, it was
the most valuable export for
the islands. The peak of the
industry was in 1917, when the
Bahamas produced about 27
percent of all the sponge
caught in the world.
Some 1,010,239 pounds,
valued at approximately
$400,578 was exported that
year.
Today, several people are
making an attempt to revive
the Industry, but on a smaller
scale. Joseph Armaly is the
only Bahamian sponge
merchant at present.
He inherited his business
from his father, W. J. Armaly
and Mr. Andrew Dworin, a
Cuban exile from Miami now
runs the Vouvalis Company
nacken and Exporters on West
Bay Street, established in
London in 1882 and probably
one of the first large firms to
establish a sponge business and
warehouse here.
Mr. Dworin presently

States. From the earliest days.
the United States was the
biggest market for sponge with
Europe a close second.
As early as 1843, some
132 bales were shipped to
Great Britain and the United
States.
There are said to be 5.000
known varieties of sponge in
the world, but only live varieties
of commercial value exist in
the Bahamas 1I .lh.ud,
Grass, Wool. Reef and Yellow.
Sponge is available Irom all
the islands, but the biggest
suppliers are Andros, long
Island, Abaco and I xuma.
When spongmng was in its
"hey des". a sponge fleet
consisted ot 600 \cesels, that is
schooners and shops built in
local shipyards and carried five
dinghies.
Sponge was ,gathered hb two
men in dinghies hy means of
iron hooks attachedd to poles
10 to 12 teet in length and a
water glass was used for finding
and determining which sponge
to hook.
An average voyage lasted
from five to eight weeks
depending on the catch.
When the dinghies were full,
the sponges were taken hack to,
the vessel., spread on deck and
left exposed to the sun for
several days to allow the black
gelatinous substance covering
the sponge to die.
Once a week the sponges
were taken to the Sponge Kra1l
in Andros, an enclosed penC
fenced in bi sticks of wood 1r 1
mangrove to allow lree
circulation of water, where
thev were left to ,'oak anid
wash for fi\e to si\ da\s h\
action of the water.
At the end of this period.
they were taken out and
beaten with sticks until the
decaved outer covering had
been entirely removed. I hey
were then scraped to remove
anys excess coral., silnl or rock
When clean. the sponge c
were ''ie,,hill to Nassau i o their
Sponge Exchange, a large, long
narrow, open building wiilh no
side walls, then located at the.
north end of Frederick Street


Mrs. Gail Saunders, Bahamas Archivist, (2nd left) make final preparations with her staff for the exhibition of
historical documents on the "Sponging Industry" which will be opened Monday by Prime Minister, Mr. Pindling at 4
p.m. With Mrs. Saunders are (left to right) David Wood, archives assistant; Alexis Cancino, archivist assistant; Nicholas
Rolle, paper keeper and Bernice Kelly, secretary to the archives section.


They were then laid out in
lots for sale by tender to the
highest bidder which were
made up of Nassau merchants
and Greeks who represented
major businesses and firms
abroad.
After the sale. the sponges
were taken to the sponge or
packing yards by means of a
dray which had specially
constructed wooden or wire
pens or large straw baskets.
They were then sorted by
quality: clipped, soaked in tubs
of lime water and spread out to
dry in the sun on burlap.
They were handed to
"sorters" who divided them
into siues, grades and placed
them in pens made of wire
where they were taken to the
press room and packed in
quandrangular sided bales
covered with burlap while
under compression in a screw
press.
The bales were sewn with a
large sail needle and heavy
string, labelled and numbered
in ink.
Although sponging in those
days was a money making
venture, the ,p,'ng. fishermen
often remained in debt, seldom
breaking even.
Very rarely did a fisherman
make even $300 a year. As a
result of this in 1905. an Act
to consolidate and amend the
law relating to the sponge and
Turtle Fisheries was passed.
Among clauses was that
pay ment for sponge or rather
to the sponge fisherman was to
he made in money only.
The reason for this was
when a fisherman applied to go
on a voyage, he was not paid
b? wages, but received a share
of the profits of the take.
However, this partnership
did not benefit the fisherman
very much, for usually his


employer kept a store from
which he invited the fisherman
to take an advance in his share
often the goods were of no use
to the fisherman who sold
them for even less than their
worth in order to leave money
with his family while on a
voyage.
Although the act served to
better the state of things, it
failed to guarantee steady
employment or specified
wages.
After three hurricanes in
1926, the sponge industry was
crippled and sponge cultivation
diminished considerably in
spite of efforts on the part of
Mr. H. C. Christie, father of the
late Sir Harold to encourage
artificial sponge culture.


Sponge planting, however
produced encouraging results,
but it still diminished largely to
over fishing of the beds and the
practice of hooking the
younger and not quite ready
sponges.
This abuse led to the
Agricultural and Marine
Products Board Sponge
Amendment Rules 1937,
which forbade the fishing of
sponge under a certain size,
All vessels were also required
to be licensed to fish under the
new amendment.
Another setback in the
sponge industry was the
developing of a synthetic
sponge by Dupont around this
time. In Nov. and Dec. 1938 a
major catastrophe struck the


sponge beds.
Within two months, the
disease had wiped out 99
percent of the sponge.
After numerous tests it was
found out that a disease caused
by a kind of fungus had hit the
beds.
No other form of marine life
was affected by the disease.
To revive the industry, the
Sponge Fisheries investigation
recommended sponge planting.
Recovery was expected to be
slow, so it was advised that
there be a closed season and
that fishing of the beds be
controlled to ensure
continuity. Many thousands
lost their livelihood as a result
of the disaster.

Where should declarer look
for 13 tricks? With 10 top
tricks, a dummy reversal offers
much the best chance. Dummy
having the required entries,
South ruffs three diamonds in
the closed hand. draws trumps
from dummy and cashes his
spades.
The play seems straightfor-
ward, but Rose decided to give
himself one extra chance. Alter
ruffing the OK and laying down
the 4Q, he led the QQ. He had
no thought of finessing, of
course, for a second heart trick
would be needed only if trumps
broke 4-1, but it cost nothing
to give West a chance to go
wrong.
Very injudiciously, West
covered. Rose couldn't have
made his grand slam otherwise,
for with trumps breaking 4-1,
he couldn't have afforded to ruff
three diamonds. That second
heart trick was vital.

By GL\I)D)SITONE Tilt RS10N

BAHAMAS' 2l1-ear-old welterweight champ Elisha Ohed
might find the defence of his undefeated record of 42 fights a
stift test tonight when he takes on Jamaica's number one
middleweight contender Windell Spencei in a ten rounder at the
Nassau Stadium.


Spence who in his Nassau
debut last \ear stopped
Sherwin Johnson in twu
rounds, arrived \csterday in
top slape seeking revenge for
Obed's sisvtory over his
stahlemates Ros Goss and
Bunn. Grant
The strapping 155 pound
2.- ear-old boxer sports a 25
and two record with 14
knockouts tI will not get
an easy victory My glove will
do the talking for me,"
Spencer said confidently.
A.c co mp i ranied by his
minal.Ter ereck )awk ins,
Spencer pointed out that
tonight's bout will be a warm
up for his title bout next
month Hlie meets middleweight
champ Roy Lee in Jamaica.
Obed on the other hand
prefers to talk less and fight
more. Ihis attitude reflects in
his being ranked tenth in the
world welterweight ratings He

worked out under the tutelage
of trainer Moe Fleischer.
In other bouts tonight.

This Programme Subject to Change


lI-)\h )N\ A new peace
plan for tennis was announced
yesterday, ..r ,l.linr the world's
top stars to play at Wimbledon,
Forest H[Il:, and in the Davis
Cup.
The International Lawi,
tennis Federation (lLT:) said
it had reached an agreement
with world team tennis (WTT i.
whose planned inter-cities
league in the United States had
threatened to cut across some
of the big tournaments
WTI, which at one time
planned to use an
unorthododox new scoring
system, agreed to stage all its


events t-nder !LTF rules.
In return for international
recognition WTT" will pay ILTF
$48,000 a year. Of this. 25 per
cent will go towards ILFT
management expenses and the
rest will be dedicated to the
development of tennis,
particularly in countries where
the game is not well
established.
The ILTF last month
authorized its president Allan
Hleyman, Danish-born London
lawyer, to seek an agreement
with WTT.
The new plan is the result ot
talks between Hleyman and the
American group. l AP)

LONDON An ace
goalscorer could be the decisive
figure in the world soccer cup
championships next summer in
Germany.
And many critics think it
could be Johann Cruyff of the
Netherlands.
After the draw was made at
least one expert predicted the
Dutch team will win. That
forecast came from Jock Stein.
manager of Glasgow Celtic,
who has taken his team
through nine straight European
Cup campaigns and has as
i much ex perience of
international soccer as any man
alive.
"I fancy the Dutch team.,"
Stein said.
"In any case, the World Cup
is being played in Europe, and
I am sure it will be a Eluropean
team's turn to will. I don't
think Bra/il will retain the
cup."
Fihe Netherlands were drawn
in group 3, along with
Uriruguay. Bulgaria and Sweden.
Uruguay is rated probably the
weakest of the four seeded
teams.
The other three seeds

champions Brazil and Italy

playing records than Uruguay.

In group 4, Argentina,
Poland and Haiti will be trying
to find ways of scoring a goal
against Italy. The Italians
played six games in the
qualifying tournament without
conceding a goal.
One of the fascinating
features of the World Cup will
be seeing how this super Italian
defence deals with Wlodzimierz
Lubanski. Poland's ace
goalscorer.
West Germany, Brazil.
Uruguay and Italy will be
expected to make the
quarter-finals. It will be a
surprise if any one of them
fails.
The four to go with them?
Maybe Last Germany.
