"I've been feeling so much tension, such sha eaid. "It's a definite signal. I'll work through the year be- cause I've got commitments. Then I'll quit show business. At least for a year. Maybe forever." Now Ann-Margret may be forced to end her career.

Already, actual dynamite blasts have occurred .at cam- paign meetings in these tran- quil islands and fire bomb at- tacks have bacYy damaged four party headquarters. Two of the headquarters be long to Prime Minister Lynden Pindling's ruling Progressive Liberal Party CPLP) which aims to lead the colony Into in dependence fror.i Britain early next year.

A 21-year-old Bahamian armed with a loaded revolver tried to force his way into the leader's office saying he would kill Pindling. Pindling, 42, a black, London- trained lawyer, led the PLP to victory over the all-white United Bahamian Party gov- ernment in 1967. After five years in office, Pindling still commands the de- votion of a large section of the 170.000 inhabitants, but results of his black nationalist policies have disappointed some of his followers and given ammuni- tion to his political opponents. Stringent immigration pol- icies aimed at ensuring that black Bahamians are not ex- cluded from posts traditionally held by whites were followed by a sharp decline in business and investment, particularly in the tourist industry on which Bahamians rely heavily. Premier Pindling blames a local recession on financial problems in the United States, from which most Bahamian business stems. Political oppo- nents blame it on his policies. dieted complete recovery, but he said he didn't know how long it will take. Ann-Margret's hard-driving ambition stems from her childhood. Born April -28, 1S41, in Stockholm, she lived most of her early years alone with her mother. When tho girl was eight, they joined her father near Chicago, where he had been working as an undertaker. She has said she still has nightmares from sleeping in the same room with dead bodies awaiting burial. At 16, she failed to win as a singer on Ted Mack's Ama- teur Hour. Then; after year at Northwestern University, she went on tour with a small band. It had little success, but people were impressed by the voluptuous, red-haired. Nordic beauty with tha straightforward singing style. Among them was comedian George Burns. BURNS IMPRESSED He was impressed and took her to Las Vegas, "where she was a riot." But something went sour. That changed with Carnal Knowledge. Mike Nichols directed her as a somewhat overripe sex- pot, and she stole the film, Tho performance won an Os- car nomination. Her career, carefully guided by husband Roger Smith, formerly of 77 Sunset Strip, boomed higher than ever. Remarked George Burns: "I know she will pull through. She's a gutty girl with lot of spunk. She deserves the best." ANN-MARGHET likely lo recove Nuclear arm agreement approv ed LABOR GLUB Corner 13th St. and 2nd Ave.' N.
