Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta PREMIER PINDLING Bahamas makes final break By IKE FLORES NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) This chain of 70s) islands ar- ching between Florida and Haiti is about to become an inde- pendent country. Led by its first black prime minister, the Independent Com- monwealth of the Bahamas has a couple of items to attend to with the United States and Cu- ba before making its final break from Britain July 10. At a conference in Nassau with U.S. and British officials this spring, Prime Maiister Lynden 0. Pindling and his for- eign secretary, Paul Adderley, will seek preliminary agree- ment on a new treaty for exist- ing U.S. defence installations on the islands. "We don't visualize any prob- lems on the resolution of these says Adderley. Pindling and Adderley also expect to meet Fidel Castro of Cuba "in the near future" to talk about sea boundaries and fishing rights. Pindling calls the establishment of territorial lim- its one of the most important items of business for bis gov- ernment. STAY IN COMMONWEALTH The Bahamas has had inter- nal self-government since 1964. Full independence means it will assume control of its defence and foreign affairs. However, the Bahamas will remain a member of the British Com- monwealth. The country's leaders are banking heavily on its becoming a major terminal point for oil from Africa, the-Middle East and Venezuela. The present oil refinery In Freeport is expanding its ca- pacity to barrels a day. There are plans to establish a Wednesday, April 4, 1973 THE lETHBRIDQE HERALD 25 Canada, U.S. legislators tackle problems WASHINGTON (CP) Cana- dian and United States legisla- tors will discuss trade, mone- tary, energy, environmental and security affairs common to both countries when they meet here this week. The occasion is the 13th an- nual Canada U.S. parliamentary interchange in which members of the Canadian House of Com- mons and the Senate discuss the top issues of the day in an informal atmosphere with their U.S. counterparts The interchange alternates annually between Ottawa and Washington. This year's closed meetings are set for Thursday and Fri- day, with a report expected to be to reporters late Monday. A source close to the U.S. del- egation said the conference will be broken up into two com- mittees. "Under one, the issues are the multilateral trade issues, in- ternational monetary reform, industrial policies and inter- national trade and foreign own- ership he said. "The second committee will review Great Lakes water lev- els and pollution, air pollution, national energy policies which will include pipelines for gas and oil, and securing peace in Indochina." The first official interchange came in 1961, following explor- atory talks between the two countries. Deputy Speaker Robert McCleave will lead the IB Cans dian House members here, with Senate Speaker Muriel Fergus- son beading a group of seven Canadian senators. Two Democrats will act as chairmen for the committees- Representative Thomas E. Mor- gan of Pennsylvania and Sena- tor Gale McGee of Wyoming. Names of the full U.S. delega- tion were not immediately available. The Canadian delegates will be drawn from four political parties. The Liberal members of Par- liament will be Herbert Breau, Marcel Roy, Ross Whicher, Jac- ques Trudel, Barnie Danson, J. J. Blais and Alexandra Cyr. The Progressive Conservatives are McCleave Walter Baker, Alvin Hamilton, David MacDo- nald, J. Patrick Nowlan, Frank Oberle, Paul Hellyer and James Gillies.

Beaubien, AUister Grosart, Grattan O'Leary, Arthur Laing and Maunce ROBERT MCCLEAVE Values effective 'til closing, Saturday, April 7 We reserve the right to limit quantities to normal family purchases deep-water oil terminal for heavy tankers in Freeport. Bahamian refining capacity could be expanded to more than a million barrels a day, Pindl- ing says. Pindling's Progressive Lib- eral party won election last September on the independence issue. x Its opponent last year was the Free National Movement, a coalition of the white-oriented United parry and a number of dissident blacks from Pindling's party. The ebullient Pindling is given most of the credit for winning 29 of 38 seats in the House of affir- mation that majority govern- ment by blacks is here to stay. More than 85 per cent of the population of scattered over about 30 inhabitated islands is black. BIAGE IS WORRY The question of image is serious U> the tourist-based economy. Pindling acknowledges there has been a surge of nationalism since his black government took over in 1967. "Some have called it black nationalism or black power, not really understanding what they saw in (be he says. Critics contend the govern- ment's policy means "blacks but PindJing says it means only that Bahamians should be employed in jobs they ere qualified to do. His govern- ment bars the importation of foreign woriters lo perform jobs that Bahamians can do just as well, he adds. Pindling says thai after the 1968 election, some of the "black nationalism" spilled over into what be calls "the hospitality causing bad service in botefc, shops and resort areas.
