One of the organizers of a new Nassau-based American Investment firm is Miami Mayor Steve Clark. First International Realty-Securities Fund will sell shares to foreign investors and with the proceeds buy Income-producing real estate In the United States. No American, of course, is permitted to buy shares In the fund since that would Involve It In the jurisdiction of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Chairman of an advisory company associated with the fund is Edward N. Gadsby, a understand our country, morally, socially or economically, and how dare he presume to sum up a country and a people with such ridiculous assertions after Just one day here? It's an outright Insult." Bahamians, who have within recent weeks won additional concessions from Britain toward the establishment of total self government, were In for another surprise from a non-Bahamian source. According to a report published by a subcommittee of the United Nations' Special Committee on Decolonization, the Bahamas and a dozen' or so other dependent territories "are being exploited by colonial and other big trading powers." In a country which already enjoys a large measure of control over every area of its internal affairs, in which there is a tourism-backed booming economy and not enough Ba hamians for all the jobs open, there is bound to be a feeling that the U.N. subcommittee members are totally out of touch with conditions here and just don't know what they're talking about. In contrast to Dr. King's wild allegations and the 'unreal ramblings of the U.N. anti-colonialists, visiting members of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association have expressed enthusiastic impressions of the people and the country. Before Prime Minister L.O. Pindling opened the 14th CPA conference in Nassau last Friday, the 200 delegates spent three days of leisurely sightseeing in the Out Islands.

Dr. Alfred Daniel Williams King spent 24 hours here and announced to the press that he was "shocked and appalled" by the amount of poverty he had seen. "At least half the population goes to bed hungry every night, while the other half is throwing away food," said Dr. King. Commented the Nassau Guardian In an editorial reply: "Dr. King was not among us long enough to know from personal observation whether or not he was being accurate in his estimate. In fact, he was guilty of an exaggeration which was, to borrow his own phrase, both shocking and appalling." The reaction of the average Bahamian was eloquently expressed In a letter to the same newspaper by a correspondent who was careful to identify himself as a Negro. He wrote: "Obviously Dr. King does not W.P.B. GARDEN CLUB'S 8th ANNUAL BAZAAR EXTRAORDINAIRE! We've added to our collection of fine handcrafted gifts and holiday decorations.
