AT ALL' TO SAY
B ROA DCA STING
Corporation chairman Senator
Milo B. Butler today declined
comment on news reports of a
press conference staged on
Sunday by 20 dissatisfied
employees of Radio Bahamas.
Contacted yesterday morning,
Sen. Butler told The Tribune
le has not yet seen the
morning paper. It was agreed
that The Tribune would
telephone again this morning,
when the senator had had an
opportunity to see the reports
in both newspapers.
, Contacted this morning,
however, Mr. Butler said he
had "nothing at all" to say on
S tie reports.
The Radio Bahamas staff
revealed last week that on
August 13 they had submitted
a list of 24 demands to
management. Among other
things, they wanted higher
The initial reports brought
from Sen. Butler the statement
that as far as he was aware
there were no staff problems.
On Sunday the staff met
with the press to refute the
GET FORMS FOR
CLOSE to a thousand
people are believed to have
visited the Publications Office
yesterday to obtain citizenship
a p p location forms made
available for the first time.
An informed source
described the public response
as "something of a small
panic" on the first day the
forms became available. "We
had to open three packets
before the end of the day,"
The Tribune was told.
The queue to obtain forms
circled the Publications Office
which is located in the eastern
part of the old post office
building on Rawson Square.
Applicants waited in line as
long as an hour in some cases.

superficial injuries to his face

There were indications that
work-to-rule, "sick-ins," or full
strikes would be planned to
hit Bahamasair, Radio
Bahamas, the Bahamas

firms and others
The resolution, which was
adopted by a unanimous vote
of over 150 unionists meeting
in the Taxico Union Hall on
Wulff Road, was to the effect
that the demands be made,
and, in the event of negative
responses, the executive
committee and the shop
stewards would devise a plan of
action to "cut away the
While "a plan of action has
been devised," Mr. Williams did
not want to divulge it because
it would give the employers the
opportunity to prepare.
However, "you don't just
strike," Mr. Williams told the
union members. "You escalate
the warfare slowly. You start
small and end big.
"The go-slow is the most
effective method workers have
devised. A job that usually
takes an hour will take two
hours, three hours, four hours
or six hours.

Throughout last night's
two-hour meeting, called to
acquaint each section of the
union with the problems of the
others, the importance of unity
and combined action was

the formation of what he
called a union "defensive

justice should take its course.
Retribution should set in.
"When you lose at the table

and you know you're right,

the offender and crush him.

their windows open in the
Bahamas, but they know better
than to do it in Jamaica, or the
U.S. or anywhere else.
"We have a defensive unit in
BEC," Mr. Williams said, "but
we need it union-wide. If you
cannot get something peaceful
you have to fight."
Stressing unity among the
union's various sections, Mr.
Williams said "we shouldn't let
ZNS stand alone. We
shouldn't let Bahamasair
stand alone. If we do, they'll
crush us all one by one. We
should act together."
He said Deputy Prime
Minister Arthur Hanna's recent
remark that the government
could not encourage merchants
to increase wages "made our
tight three times as hard"
"But there is no power on
earth stronger than the

Bahamasair, ZNS, BEC, say
'what they raising hell about?'
It is an unfair question,
because some people in this
town have it good, they are
fixed for life, they can eat with
silver spoons, ride around in
Rolls-Royces and live in
million-dollar homes. But they
are the minority. A lot of

If Mr. X is living in a $20,000

"The cost of living keeps
going up," Mr. Williams
continued, "and yet Mr. Hanna
says he wouldn't encourage
merchants to increase wages.
"We have reached a position
where we have to decide which
direction we are going in:
forward or backward.
"We are members of an
organisation. If they touch

their assistance. If they touch
BEC, or Bahamasair. or Shell,
or Freeport we must all come
to their defence.
"This must be our motto: 'If
you touch my brother I'll kill
you. If you touch my sister I'll
bury you.' Give us money and
we won't trouble you."
He said in the interest of
being "fair-minded," he had to
call for more productivity on
the part of the workers.
"If we ask for more money
you have got to stop being late,
and we have got to put out our
best effort. Some people are
laying back and saying the
union will get you out of
anything. But when we send
you on the man's job we
expect you to put out your
best workmanship so you don't
let the union down."
Former professional boxer
Cassius "Muhammed Ali"
Moss, although not a union
member, was present and was
invited to speak.
Mr. Moss said in every
country he knew of "the

know of where the

and the laws of your country.
"The Government must be

who have a million-dollar
home, but the average guy,
only God knows what he has.
We live in fear. We must fight.

The Government must respond

Mr. Moss declared.

By ETIENNE DUPUCH
THE WESTERN WORLD is faced with a serious problem since
British influence has been withdrawn from the oil-bearing areas of
the Middle East.
It all started some years ago when Mussadiq, Prime Minister of
Iran (Persia) assailed the Anglo-Iranian Oil Co. which controlled
the oil wells in that country. Mussadiq was broken politically but
he started a movement that received the sympathetic support of
American oil companies who, presumably, wanted a piece of the
Western influence in the Middle East plummeted to the depths
after the Suez crisis in 1956 when American interference again
upset British and French control in that area.
And when Britain decided to withdraw the Royal Navy ... and
all British forces ... from areas "East of Suez", that ended all
Western influence in the Middle East.
Immature American foreign policy has been responsible for
this serious decay of western influence in an area that is vital to
the survival of major industrial nations.
I suppose the U.S. thought it could step in when Britain
stepped out of these areas but this was a vain hope.
Everybody is on the outside now and the oil countries are
holding the rest of the world up for ransom. As a result the U.S.
is experiencing a serious power crisis today that may end in the
rationing of fuel ... a condition that has never before been
experienced in peacetime.
This is a serious situation. It is possible to adjust to restrictions
in peacetime but, in case of war ... the Arab states could cripple
any side by cutting off its fuel supplies.
The Western Allies were secure on this score in the past wars
because British influence in the Middle East guaranteed all the
fuel supplies needed by our side.
This was the objective of General Rommel in the war on the
African desert in the second world war. This most outstanding of
all German military leaders led his Panzer divisions to within
striking distance of the gates of Cairo when Field Marshal
Montgomery turned him back with his hard-hitting Eighth Army.
Had Ronmmel broken through to Cairo and seized the oil wells
of the Middle East ... this could have spelled victory for Hitler ...
and return to slavery for the dark races.
Today the Western powers and especially the U.S. are
exploring every possible avenue in the search for oil in this
hemisphere ... and, with the ever-increasing knowledge they are
compiling on the subject, it is possible that they will find oil
somewhere. even maybe in the Bahamas..'
IUnder the caption "University of Miami Undersea Exploration
Discovers New Concepts Of Coral Reef Geology". Jean Yehle
writes that "because marine geologists have found a coral reef
hardening into rock 600 feet underwater, new possibilities for oil
prospecting on land may have opened up.
Their discovery made by use of a two-man submersible and
confirmed by Carbon 14 dating provides greater understanding
of the structure of ancient reefs found on land. It is in these
ancient reefs that much of the world's oil is found.
"The observations were made by a scientific team headed by
Drs. Robert N. Ginsburg and Noel P. James of the University of
Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, in
a project sponsored by the Commerce Department's National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the National
Science Foundation. The scientific team made 86 dives in 14 dive
days during October 1972, sampling areas of the Barrier Reef and
Glover's Reef, British Honduras.
"We have found that, in British Honduras at least, the
ocean-facing reefs are hardening and becoming nonporous very
rapidly. but reefs in the lagoon remain porous and permeable, Dr.
Ginsburg said. 'This is counter to generally accepted notions of
ancient limestone reefs found on land, where it was believed that
the hardening occurred long after the reefs were buried and was
not selective '."
"About 50 percent of all petroleum found on land is found in
porous limestones. Only reefs that are porous are capable of
retaining commercial amounts of petroleum.
"The new findings by the Miami team mean that the discovery
of nonporous reefs or even nonporous zones in a single reef need
not rule out the existence of porous reefs nearby. Further oil
prospecting may therefore be warranted on some previously
abandoned sites, and, in addition, this knowledge will help
geologists planning exploration of new sites.
"Knowledge of the structure of fore reefs and reef platform
margins to date has been derived largely from geological study of
ancient deposits in Texas, the Alps, and other areas of the world.
To know more about these ancient reefs the team undertook
explorations of living reefs reefs that, they discovered, are
presently in the process of forming and hardening.
"The Barrier Reef off British Honduras is the largest reef in the
Western Hemisphere and second in size only to the Great Barrier
Reef off Australia."'
It is because of all the new knowledge that is being compiled
on the possible whereabouts of oil that companies keep coming
back to the Bahamas and spending large sums of money on
sinking wells in this area.
Andros is believed the most likely spot where oil may be found
in this area. The reason for this is that it is geologically different
from all the other islands. It is believed that many thousands of
years ago Andros was a part of the American mainland, having
been broken away from the Florida coast by the erosion of the
Gulf Stream and anchored out in the ocean as the outpost of a
group of islands that thousands of years later were pushed up out
of the ocean by volcanic eruption.
It is said that there is a spot on the Florida coast where Andros
S could fit like a segment in a jig-saw puzzle.
Andros is not only geologically different from the other
islands but it has other physical characteristics that make it
singular in the Bahamas archipelago.
On the side facing the Florida coast it is approached by shallow
sand banks running for a distance of many miles. The banks are
so shallow that fish swimming in the crystal clear water can be
seen from planes flying thousands of feet up in the air.
The other side of the island faces on deep ocean with a great

Clues pointing to Andros as the possible depository of large
areas of oil are found in Florida and Cuba. In both these places a
trickle of a highly refined oil has been found. It is believed that a
large deposit may be located between these two points. And
because of its geological characteristics which make Andros a
possible splinter of the American mainland, this island was first
explored in the search for oil in these islands.
Because of new knowledge about the possible location of oil
deposits, last year a company spent a large sum of money on
drilling off the coast of Long Island but with no results.
It would be wonderfttl if oil could be found in the Bahamas.
But the most important consideration at the present time is that
oil be found in this part of the world in sufficient quantities to
free the west from the stranglehold now exercised by Middle Last
monarchies and Sheikdoms.

MR.and MRS. LARRY TRECO
By Abigail Van Buren
V 1973 by Chicgo Tribune.N. Y. News Synd., Inc.
DEAR ABBY: I have been a faithful Abby fan ever
since you started writing your column in 1956.
Whenever I would leave the city, I'd ask my housekeep-
er to save the newspapers, because I didn't want to miss
even one of your articles.
To my mind, the best thing you ever wrote was "The
Ten Commandments for Wives." Then a few months later,
you topped yourself with a companion piece titled, "The
Ten Commandments for Husbands."
Today we desperately need to be reminded of some old-
fashioned rules for making a marriage work. Will you
please publish those articles again?
DEAR SAN FRANCISCAN: I still receive requests for
copies of the items you mention. A surprising number of
readers have asked for permission to reprint them in their
church bulletins. In all humility and with no intended irrev-
erence to Moses, here are my TEN COMMANDMENTS
1. Defile not thy body neither with excessive foods,
tobacco, nor alcohol, that thy days may be long in the
house which thy husband provideth for thee.
2. Putteth thy husband before thy mother, thy father,
thy daughter, and thy son, for he is thy lifelong companion.
3. Thou shalt not nag.
4. Permit no one to tell thee that thou art having a
hard time of it; neither thy mother, thy sister, nor thy
neighbor, for the Judge will not hold her guiltless who
letteth another disparage her husband.
5. Thou shalt not withhold affection from thy husband,
for every man loveth to be loved.
6. Forget not the virtue of cleanliness and modest
7. Forgive with grace, for who among us does not need
8. Remember that the frank approval of thy husband is
worth more to thee than the admiring glances of a hundred
9. Keep thy home in good order, for out of it cometh
the joys of thy old age.
10. Honor the Lord thy God all the days of thy life, and
thy children will rise up and call thee blessed.
I Next weekend, "The Ten Commandments for Hus-
DEAR ABBY: Am I normal? Or am I ready for the
funny farm? I look for bugs and insects in my house,
garden, furniture, rugs, and even on my kids. If I should
spot an insect in the house [say an ant or a spider], I
immediately start a thoro search for more, and I go ber-
serk cleaning, scrubbing, and spraying wherever I think
they might be coming from.
If I find an insect I'm not familiar with, I get out my
encyclopedia and look up everything I can find on it. I then
become even more interested in bugs, and start on another
crusade to get rid of bugs I'm not even sure I have.
I take beds apart and inspect the box springs and
mattresses. I even examine the pile in my carpet with a
magnifying glass. I'm constantly checking our dog for
fleas, and my kids' hair for lice! [I never found any.]
Do normal people behave this way? Or am I ...
LOSING MY MARBLES?
DEAR LOSING: Since you question your stability, I'd
say you have a problem. Ask your doctor to recommend a
therapist who can give you a psychological de-bugging.
CONFIDENTIAL TO E. L.: Forget It, forget! "Hating
people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a
rat." [Harry E. Fosdick]

associate, be sure you are holding up your fair share of the
responsibilities A public affair could be worrisome but by
evening all clears up nicely Don't argue

co-worker for some apparent error, since you could be
wrong and it would later be embarrassing Keep busy at
regular routines so you have no time to pick on others.

with others, or there could be disappointment Make certain

others since they are busy now and worried about their own
affairs Become a more independent person You can
