attitude towards women, the
Prime Minister recalled that

to say that "as time went by I

"I see it as part and parcel of
our attitude towards our

Speaking about Bahamian
attitudes towards work, Mr.
Pindling noted that
"Bahamians like slackness.
"We like to comment on
how 'lucky' this one or that
one is, but we very often fail to
realize that what appears to be
great luck is really a little more
elbow grease, a little extra

secretary Lionel Carey,
psychologist Dr. Tim
McCartney, attorney Jeanne
Thompson, student Leslie
Pinder and ICYA member
Mary Ellen Nairn. Alfred Sears
moderated the discussion.
Mr. Carey dealt more with
existing attitudes and
institutions that he felt must
be changed, rather than with
new attitudes to be developed.
He said that as the
population was mainly black
and had for 300 years been
"brainwashed" into living with
the white man's values and
institutions, a whole new set of
values and institutions must be
Dr. McCartney pointed out
that all human beings,
regardless of nationality, race,
religion or social standing, have
basic physical, social,
psychological and spiritual
needs and our energies should
be directed to encouraging
attitudes which would give rise
to a system capable of meeting
those basic, common needs.
Drawing attention to the
varied national, racial, social
and religious backgrounds of
the Bahamian population, Dr.
McCartney asked, "What really
is a Bahamian, what type of
person is he?"
He said that because of the
varied elements in the
Bahamian population "we are
in an excellent position to
create a new way of life, a new
society, new culture.
"What is important is for
Bahamians to develop a
closeness between what they
express and what they really
He added that "Bahamians
have a consuming mistrust for
each other, which projects very
deep insecurity. We have got to
be true to ourselves. We have
got to be honest with
ourselves. We have got to be
Miss Thompson, like Mr.
Carey, dealt with certain
attitudes which she felt
"should be eradicated."
One attitude to be
eradicated is many Bahamians'
feelings toward independence.
"Some people think
independence will bring
everything, but independence
is not the key that opens the
door on everything.
"Then there is the attitude
that independence will ruin
everything. Both of these
should be eradicated," Miss
She criticised political, social
and religious leaders who
"don't understand the meaning
of the word 'leadership'. To
lead is to guide by persuasion,
and to lead is to be the servant
of the people, not the other
way around. This is an attitude
that must be changed if this
country is to be anything at
all," she said.
Finally, Miss Thompson
called for a change in the
"patronage" system, under
which persons who do political
favours are repaid by getting a
regardless of their
suffering under it
Miss Thompson also pointed
out that besides discussing
which attitudes should be
discouraged and which
encouraged, someone is also
going to have to discover how
the Bahamas can go about
changing those attitudes.
Mr. Pindling made an
attempt at answering the
question when he pointed out
that civilisations and cultures
"are not built in five years,
they take generations.
"If it takes us a generation
to develop an education system
relevant to the Bahamian
experience, then thank God for
the next generation we will
be doing well."
Mr. Isaacs opened his
remarks by saying that "at the
risk of making myself even
more unpopular, the first
attitude we should develop is
that independence must
"Once the people voted in
favour of going independent it
is incumbent on all of us to see
that independence for the
"First, we must have and
feel an identity with the
Bahamas and with other
Bahamians. And the job of our
leaders in politics, in
Government, in civics, in
religion is to see that we in the
Bahamas are united in so far as
the basic and fundamental
goals are concerned."
He said that among those
basic goals was the
development of a "basic
honesty and integrity," and of
Miss Nairn stressed the point
that "we can no longer enjoy
the bliss of ignorance." She
said Bahamians must learn to
appreciate the need for
education, both academic and
Miss Pinder listed as
desirable attitudes loyalty,
tolerance, concern, courtesy,
respect and an appreciation of
duty and obligation.

beginning in July of this year
and probably continuing on to
1976, it is essential tha there

between all involved-namely
government, employers and
workers," the Minister
He pointed out that much of
the success of the scheme
would be left to the individual.
"Each must do his part. This
three-way partnership of
government, employer and
worker is best designed to
illustrate the fairness and the
equity of this scheme."
Continued Mr. Darling: "No
man will be asked to do more
than the other; no man is
expected to do less than the
other. But this is a joint
responsibility for us all to work
towards achieving the success
of this programme."
Dealing specifically with the
benefits to be derived by the
people of Abaco, Mr. Darling
said it was important to note
that this community, with a
population of over 7,000
people, was among the largest

and replace the Old Age

Declared the Minister:
"There is a National Insurance
Scheme because government is
concerned for the welfare of
the peoples in this age bracket.
"It is upon the shoulders of
the young and working people
that the future of this nation is
to be built, and it is the
commitment of this
government to insure that the
welfare of the Bahamian
people remain a top priority."
Mr. Darling said the
government wanted to be sure
that every worker and every
member of his family would

was employed but also when
he retired or should a

In A baco and the
surrounding areas this number
was quite sizeable. Abaco
employed some 36 per-cent
of its total population and it
was this class of people that
were highly vital to the good
working of the National

terms of contributions made
by this class of people and in

AGNEW VISITS S. VIET & SIX OTHER ASIAN COUNTRIES
WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Spiro T. Agnew will leave Sunday
for South Vietnam and for visits to six other Asian countries, the White
House announced Friday.
The purpose of the trip, said Press Secretary Ronald L. Ziegler, is "to
discuss postwar relations" and to "explain the continuing American role in
Asia." Agnew will also stress the United State' interest in "peace and
self-determination for all the nations in Southeast Asia."
DOES SIGNING MEAN CEASE-FIRE IN LAOS & CAMBODIA?
WASHINGTON (AP) The Pentagon today left open the possibility
that U.S. warplanes will bomb the Ho Chi Minh trail and other military
targets in Laos and Cambodia after the cease-fire goes into effect Saturday.
Defense Department spokesman Jerry W. Friedheim declined to give a
direct answer when asked about this, referring only to Dr. Henry A.
Kissinger's prediction of a formal cease-fire in Laos soon and a halt in
fighting in Cambodia as well.
Under repeated questioning, Friedheim said, "I can't go beyond Dr.
Kissinger's words on those two countries."
The agreement negotiated by Kisinger with the North Vietnamese, says
all U.S. military action in South Vietnam and against North Vietnam will
end at 7 p.m. EST Saturday. South Vietnamese government forces and the
Viet Cong and North Vietnamese troops in the south also will cease firing
and remain in place at that time.
Friedheim told reporters at a Pentagon briefing the all U.S.. military
action ainst North Vietnam, including reconnaissance flights, will halt
when the cease-fire goes into effect.
AMMUNITION SHIPS DIVERTED FROM S. VIETNAM
WASHINGTON (AP) Eleven U.S. cargo ships carrying ammunition

the South Vietnamese forces only on a limited basis, carefully controlled
under international supervision.

The lessons of experience
By ETIENNE DUPUCH
FOR MANY years I saw Andros as the one island in the
Bahamas with great agricultural potential.
It has the two elements that are essential to a successful
agricultural enterprise ... fresh water and plowable soil.
I held this view during my early inexperienced years in public
But I later realized that I had overlooked a third most
important factor ... that is, a market for the products that are
raised by the farmer.
My memory goes back nearly seventy years to the early years
of The Tribune when people in the Out Islands came to my father
and complained that there was no outlet for their products.
My earliest recollection is of a fine looking Out Island
Commissioner coming to my father and complaining that he had
been told by Government to encourage the people of his district
to grow produce for the Nassau market but when it was grown
most of it rotted in the fields. He brought some fine specimens to
show my father.
I think this man's name was Adderley. He was the
Commissioner at Grand Bahama. Some of my older readers may
remember him when I recall that one of his arms was dried up
from birth. He had a stub for an arm and fins for fingers.
In later years Mr. McKinney, father of present-day Howard
McKinney, had the same complaint about the produce. It was
while Mr. McKinney was Commissioner at Harbour Island that he
organized a company at the island to buy the m.v. Endlon to
provide the first power mail service in the Out Islands.
Many other Commissioners tried and some progress was made
but always they were hampered in fulfilling their hopes by the
natural limitations of the Bahamas.
I shall always remember a bit of advice given me by the Hon.
T. C. Lofthouse, a member of4the Legislative Council, owner
of a.t. hl tSir
St rd Sands when I was a sma apeIr nearly 70 years ago.
"Remember always," he advised me, "the Bahamas is a place
for small things."
Still I had great faith in Andros as a possible centre for great
In the light of experience let us cast our eyes back over the
After the first world war Britain and the U.S. came together
and formed an organization designed to promote and develop
enterprises in the West Indies.
I have forgotten the name of this organization but it had its
headquarters in Trinidad.
The plan embraced all the islands in this hemisphere ... British,
American, French, Dutch and Independent. Represented at the
headquarters office was staff drawn from all the groups. It was in
this organization that Erskine Lindop received his training.
I visited this organization during my first visit to Trinidad in
1951. It was because of the great experience that I knew he had
gained in this operation that I recommended Mr. Lindop to Mr.
Donald d'Albenas when he was Minister of Out Island Affairs in
the U.B.P. Government. Another factor in his favour was that his
father had served as Commissioner of Police in the Bahamas and
that he had grown up in the islands and was well known here.
I worked closely with representatives of the British and
American Governments when they came to Nassau to study
possible projects for the islands.
I may have helped to influence them in selecting Andros for
A great deal of British money was poured into Andros. But the
Since then wealthy Americans have gone to Andros and
launched major agricultural enterprises. They all failed for want
of a market.
Many years earlier the fortune of the Joseph Chamberlain
family in England was wrecked by the failure of a large sisal
venture at Andros.
Let us look generally at major agricultural enterprises in the
B Pineapples were a major industry centred largely at
Eleathera. The Bahamas was run out of this business by Hawaii.
Sisal was a major industry. Bahamian sisal was run out of the
market by a product known as "Africa White".
It got to the point where you couldn't give away Bahamian
sisal. I hoped to help in the revival of this industry when my War
Materials Committee sent a free gift of five tons of sisal to the
Ministry of Supplies in London with the suggestion that the
Bahamas could supply this fibre if it were needed.
Bahamas sisal began to fade out just before the first world war.
But it staged a great come-back during the war when Sir Walter
Moore made a fortune out of stocks he had bought cheap and
stored away for just such an opportunity.
It died slowly after this war and was completely dead when the
second world war came. I hoped to give it another boost during
this war. But the effort failed. Bahamas sisal was dead in the
But the Ministry of Supply was interested. It granted one
hundred thousand pounds to the Bahamas Government for an
experiment in the cultivation of sanseviera. This plant, often used
In gardens for decorative purposes, grows easily in the Bahamas.
It produces a finer fibre than the sisal plant and is much easier
This effort failed.

crippled the enterprise.
The industry was then scaled down to the requirements of the
much smaller Canadian market.
Bahamian tomatoes had the advantage of maturing about six
weeks ahead of the American product. But the day came when
Florida farmers scarified land similar to that used for tomato
cultivation in the Bahamas and brought out an early crop too.
And so another Bahamian industry was killed.
Sugar cane was grown successfully at Abaco by a wealthy
American company but the venture failed for want of an
In the early days of Freeport a wealthy American cultivated
tomatoes for the U.S. market. He gambled on the possibility of a
freeze that would destroy the tomato crop of Florida from time
to time. The freeze never came. He abandoned the project after

never amounted to anything much.
During the second world war Dr. Axel Wenner-Gren
established a factory at Grand Bahama to preserve the great
poundage of tuna fish that was caught ... and wasted ... by sports
fishermen at Bimini and Cat Cay. This seemed like a sound
enterprise. But it failed for want of a market.
The joint British-American post-war enterprise, with
headquarters at Trinidad, was finally closed down. That was when
Erskine Lindop joined the Bahamas Civil Service.
I observed during a visit to the Caribbean a few years ago what
was probably the only result of that effort.
A subsidized British ship called at ports in the West Indies once
a week to take on a cargo of bananas for the English market
where British products enjoy a preferential tariff.
Bananas grow well in many of these islands but they cannot
compete in the open market with bananas grown in the more lush
lands of Central and South America. I don't know what will
happen to these islands if Britain is obliged to withdraw this
support now that she is in the Common Market.
Years ago ... while I was a member of the Agricultural and
Marine Products Board ... the Bahamas Produce Exchange was
established in the hopes of absorbing Out Island produce. I used
to go around peddling Out Island produce at the big shops to help
The exchange has been a great help but still many, many
thousands of dollars worth of citrus, bananas, okras, pumpkins,
watermelons and other ground produce rot at the Exchange
because of the limited market in Nassau.
One problem, of course, is price. It has been found that pigeon
peas can be imported from Africa and, even after paying customs
duty, cheaper than farmers ask for peas grown in Nassau!
What is the answer to this problem?
There is an economy of "saving" and there is an economy of
If a man needs $100 a week to maintain his family reasonably
well and he can produce $50 worth of food by his own efforts in
his own backyard then he needs only $50 a week to be secure.

pressure by becoming a part of the economy of saving.
I demonstrated the practicability of the economy of saving in
two enterprises during the 2nd world war.
On ten acres of land at Camperdown I produced all the meat,
milk, butter, cottage cheese, fruit, vegetables, honey and trapped
all the fish at a shoal near my waterfront property that were
required by my family. The surplus was sold in the local market
to help supply the island with food during war-time shortages.
The other enterprise was the War Materials Committee
operation. This committee used funds donated for the war effort
to employ a large number of unemployed Bahamians in collecting
metals and other vital war materials and producing hundreds of
thousands of pounds worth of canned food as a gift for Britain.
Ever since then I have been convinced that what we need in the
Bahamas is the development of a domestic economy in which our
people will be trained and encouraged to produce much of the
ood required for their own tables and preserve with the use of
pressure cookers surpluses, as is done by farming families in
northern countries. Fr. Cornelius and the late Fr. Arnold gave the
people of Long Island this kind of training during the last war.
THOUGHTS FOR TODAY
When wilt thou save the people?
Oh God of mercy! When?
The people, Lord, the people!
Not thrones and crowns, but men!
Experience teaches slowly, and at the cost of mistakes.

number of letters I receive asking, "Shall I put my elderly

DEAR DIARY: Today, my 80-year-old father, Henry,
came to live with us. Not that it's such a big deal, it's only
that I should have known it wouldn't work out. When Moth-
er died suddenly two years ago, Dad insisted that he could
live alone in the home he and mother had built for their
retirement. He seemed to be managing nicely until one day
I found him sick in bed with the flu, alone with nothing to
My husband agreed that we should build an apartment
for Dad over our garage, adjoining our house. That way we
could look after Dad and he would have a little place of his
July 15, Im7
DEAR DIARY: I don't know how much of this I can
take! Dad comes over here at least 40 times a day asking
me what day it is, and when is Mother coming home?
Today be put his arm around me and called me "Mildred,"
-thinking I was my own mother.
He babbles constantly and sometimes he makes no
sense at all. He wets his pants and even messes in his bed
and his trousers. What a chore! Why didn't I put him in a
nursing home? It would have made life so much easier for
us. Meanwhile, my brothers and sisters keep telling me
what a "saint" I am, but they don't offer to take him off
my hands. I have my own life to live and Dad is 80. Dear
God, help me!
July 24, 197
DEAR DIARY: I am so ashamed, I can hardly write
this. Today I unpacked a trunk Dad stored in my attic after
Mother died. Among the things Mother had saved was a
packet of letters Dad had written to her over 50 years ago
when Mother left Daddy and me to return to her hometown
to help her own mother care for her ailing father.
I will quote parts of Dad's letters to Mother:
My Darling Mildred, January 19, 1920
You'll never know how much I miss you. It
seems I've done nothing but change Jane's diapers
since you left. She babbles constantly, but is com-
pletely unintelligible. Hope you'll be back soon. -
Your Loving Henry

My Darling Mildred,
Jane is progressing some, but sometimes think
she's retarded. At 19 months shouldn't she be toilet

way, where do you keep the extra diapers? Jane
soils them faster than cai launder them. Lov-

July W2, 1912
DEAR DIARY: I have a confession to make. Shake-
speare's "Cycle of Life" was right. "From the cradle to the
grave." How could I have missed the fact that the diaper
of the infant is a prelude to the diaper of senility?
Until I found Dad's letters to Mother, I regretted not
having put Dad in a nursing home. Not that that's so bad,
but what he really needs more than anything else is a
family's love and care. It's inconvenient, and extra work,
but now it's my turn to repay him at the end of his life for
what he did for me at the beginning of mine.
Someday, he may yet best fit into some nursing home,
and when [and if] that day comes, I will consider his own
best interests. Until then, his letters to Mother will haunt
my innermost soul. JANE

Your very own homesite...
Pinewood Gardens is a government-approved sub-division. It is the first com-
munity designed to place good homesites within the reach of every Bahamian.
That's why so many Bahamians have bought land in Pinewood Gardens. They know
a good land buy when they see it. And they know that the price of land is always going
up. They know, too, that in no other sub-division in Nassau but Pinewood Gardens
can they get a 100 X 50' lot for the low price of $3,900 cash, or on terms of $75 down and
$18.40 a week. This is why Bahamians have bought and continue to buy homesites in
Pinewood Gardens. Paved roads will be installed, electric power lines will be
overhead and waterlines underground just like it is where you may be living now !
WE INVITE YOU TO SEE THE LAND.
WE PROVIDE TRANSPORT.
WE KNOW YOU'LL BUY.
IT IS A GOOD DEAL!
If you can get a better 100 X 50' lot for $3,900 buy it!
But, first, look at Pinewood Gardens homesites.

DEAR ABBY: That woman who wrote to you about
having a mad crush on her doctor has the sme problem I
had, only I didn't have sense enough to ask anybody's
adv. I plunged right into a stupid affair with mine. All I
ca say is, if a woman has to have an affair, she should
find herself a nice salesman. Theb st man in the world to
pick is a doctor. He Just doesn't have the time to carry on
a decent affair. He has a hundred built-in excuse for not
showing up, or canling out, or running away early.
Mine never did ca me by my first name, or last

DEAR ABBY: That dentist who said the reason people
hle their teeth is because of carelessness and neglect ought
to meet my husband. He is 95 years old and he still has all
his own teeth, and never had a filing in any one of them.
He never had a toothbrush in his mouth and never even
heard of dental floss. Besides that, his teeth are so white
and pretty folks keep asking him what dentist made 'em.
He must have kept his mouth sterilized with some of the
hottMst words a man could release between his teeth.

Weekend Sports Roundup
By IVAN JOHNSON
TOMORROW, last year's Sunday Soccer League Champions,
McAlpine, will attempt once more to regain their place at the top
of the league table when they play P-oAdise at Clifford Park.
McAlpine were toppled from
the top of the table a month
ago by Tropigas who are
presently the league leaders.
Last week the Clan came
hair-raisingly close to joining
Tropigas at the top of the table
when Tropigas equalized in the
closing stages of the game and
are now sitting tight with 11
points from seven games.
McAlpine have 9 points
from six games up to date,
which means they have one
game in hand. In last week's
clash with Tropigas McAlpine
showed they are back on form
and can play good football in
spite of their captain's absence
- Dick Wilson is out for the
season with a broken leg.
On last week's display
McAlpine should emerge from
Sunday's match with two
points placing them in first
place in the league along with
Tropigas. After tomorrow's
game both teams will have
three fixtures left for the
McAlpine have the harder
task they must play Red
Lion, St. George's and
Dynamos while Tropigas will
meet, Paradise, Red Lion and
Kickoff time for Sunday's
game will be 1.30 p.m.
Following the McAlpine
Paradise encounter, Red Lion
will play Dynamos who are
firmly rooted to the bottom of
the league table.
This weekend, the first ever
Pro-Am Tennis tourney to be
held in Nassau takes place at
the Montagu Beach Hotel
Nassau's top rpofessional
and amateur tennis players will
battle for the $150 winner's
prize. There is also a prize of
$80 for the runner-up and $50
for the semi-finalists.
Amongst those taking part
in the tourney will be the
popular, former Nassau
Champion Leo Rolle. The
present holder of the Nassau
Championship title and No. I
seed for the tournament, Fred
Schunk, Bertram Knowles, Bob
Isaacs, Bradley Demeritte and
Undoubtedly Rolle will be
out to avenge his loss to
Schunk in the Nassau
Championship when Schunk
defeated him 6-2, 6-3 last
December. Unless there are
any upsets these two should
clash in the finals tomorrow
afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
Sunday, the Bahamas Golf
Association holds its second
tourney for the 1973 season at
Coral Harbour Golf Course
when top golfers from
Freeport and Nassau meet to
play in the McAlpine Classic.

Elisha Obed KO's Puerto Rican
in impressive 8th. round victory
By GLADSTONE THURSTON
BAHAMAS WELTERWEIGHT CHAMP Elisa Obed making his second appearance in the middleweight division, won his 26th
consecutive fight last night 16 of which were knockouts when he stopped Puerto Rican middleweight Sady Trmes with a
power-pack right to the chin sending him out cold in 1:42 of the eighth round of their scheduled ten-rounder at the Nasau Stadium.
Obed handed Tores his third loss in 18 pro fights.
"I came to fight and I will
fight well," said Torres through
his manager/trainer Johnny
Moran, in the dressing room
before the fight. And Torres
proved no push over for the
local champ who was kept on
the defensive throughout the
early rounds of the fight.
Obed, who stalked the 154%
pound Puerto Rican with an
effective left, had the upper
part of both cheek bones
puffed by the end of the third
round. Concentrating on the
damaged area for about two
more rounds Torres' bruised
area began to bleed.
Trainer Moe Fleischer then
appealed to Obed to
concentrate his punches to the
body with uppercuts. "He has
to learn to go to the body first
and then to the chin," said
Fleischer after the fight. "It's
like if you take some bricks
out of a stone wall, the whole
Overcoming five rounds of
pressure by Torres, Obed got a
new surge of energy and came
out in the sixth round with
quicker moves than previously.
Continuing his effective left
jabs to the head, Obed landed a
solid left right combination to
the body of Tones who took
to the ropes where he got the
better of a right to Obed's
head. Torres retired to his
corner spitting blood.
Obed now on the offensive
stepped up the pace even more
as he moved Torres into the
ropes working on the
mid-section like Fleischer
instructed. Torres although
hurt got through a left and
right to Obed's head. "This
guy's in good shape,"
commented Fleischer as he
watched -Torres take Obed's
punches. "If he was'nt he never
would have gone this far."
"Torres is a good
middleweight and Elisha has
.proven that he can fight in the
commented Fleischer after the
fight, when asked about Obed's
performance in the eighth
Obed really turned on the
power in the eighth round
when he opened with a solid
left to Torres' head that
completely shook the Puerto
Rican. Torres hung on but
Obed's tackles to the body in
earlier rounds had taken their
toll of the Puerto Rican and
although he exchanged a left
and right with Obed, it made
little impression on the champ.
Obed now with sure victory
in sight faked a left to the
body and caught the rushing
Torres with that vicious right
to the chin sending the former
amateur lightweight champ out
cold with blood flowing from
Drs. Emi Achara and George
White, ring physicians for the
night, rushed to the ring where
they revived the fallen fighter
and stopped the bleeding from
a two and a half inch wound
over Torres' left eye. Dr.
Achara said that the wound
would probably take five to six
"He was in the best shape of
his career so far," said
Fleischer concerning Obed. "If
he was'nt in that shape he
might have lost. He has a lot to
learn and I will polish him up
as he goes along.
Although Obed had a
slightly swollen left eye, "his
wind was alright and he
worked that guy (Torres) right
down," said Fleischer. "He has
the making of a middleweight
champ but he's got a lot to
learn," he added, admitting
that this fight was Obed's
toughest so far.
TOUGHEST SO FAR
Obed recovering from his
exciting win admitted it was
his toughest fight and gave
credit to Torres a
undoubtedly being the best
fighter he has met.
In the Torres dressing room
after the fight, trainer Moran
was not too pleased with the
early rounds of the fight when
he claimed Obed was pushing
and holding Tones into the
ropes. However, Moran
admitted that Obed was a good
fighter and was in great shape.
In other bouts last night at
the Nassau Stadium, Eric
Brown scored a second round
technical knockout over
Knocking Rock; Kid Cruise
scored a six round decision
over Otis Clay; and John
Williams scored a third round
knockout over Roscoe Bell.
The semi-final previously
scheduled to be fought
between heavyweights Bob
Freeze and Sherwan Williams
had to be cancelled.
are presently working on more
important matches that will
project Obed into some
international ratings. Mr.
Coakley said that among other
opponents they were thinking
about were Roy Gross
Jamaican welterweight and
welterweight of Canada.
