GOVERNMENT DELAY AFFECTING BAY
OIL SALES
Because of the delay in calling
a meeting of producers and export-
ers of Bay Oil,villagers from Petite
Savanne, Fond St.Jean and other
neighboring village's are bding
deprived of revenue for their Bay
Oil production. A meeting with
Government to discuss the position
has been continually pQstponed for
a variety of reasons, including
the absence of the Minister of
Agriculture.
Investigation by DAIC has con-
firmed that according to a letter
issued by the Min, of Agriculture,
the Petite Savanne Bay Oil Co-op
was to be "the sole exporting ag-
ency for Bay Oil, provided that
the Cooperative will purchase oil
from all producers of Bay Oil in
the State". The Cooperative has
been unable to meet this provision
and since December last year has
not been buying any Oil.Government
was informed of this, agreed to
aall a meeting to make other ai.-
angements in the interest of the
producers & exporters, but as sta-
ted the meeting is yet to take place.
In the meantime, some $58,000
of sales (according to a New Chron-
icle report) is being held up be-
cause of no action by Government*
Several peasant producers in the
Fond St.Jean area have petitioned
for an early end to the present
restriction on exports.

POOR PATRICK JOH -E.C.Loblack
Jdst a few lines to ask this
questions who is Patrick John to
declare that ke is going to take
Dominica into Independence on the
2nd day of Foovember 1977, without.
getting the views of the masses?
Does Patrick know that the
blood of the Englishman has bre-,
shed for Dominica'. nd .some. Domin t-
ban blood' has been shed for Eng-
land which causes Her-Majesty tr
havq national interest in Domtnicae
Does Patrick know why Britain
made an American General in Com,
maid of World War II? Why- is not
:Patrick John interested in any of
the Commonwealth nations, but just.
:in Cuba and Guyana?
Madam I must say that the dream
Patrick John has 'that.he will bring
Dominica into Independence on 2nd
Ncvembbr is the same sprt of dream
Napcleon's mother had when he was
in the womb."Poor Patric,k John'.

CRIPPLED BY TRANSPORT PROBLEMS
O.r Portsmouth Correspondent.
ItIs a pity-Portsmouth was not
able to be present i1h the mass at
the splendid Freedomt (draft oCnsit,
meeting) on Feb,6th, And what a
fine report came out of it But
transport is a great-drawback to
us,.causing a gap ptweon us and
Roseau In.these hard days. By bus,
the vutry early departure hour is
unpleasant, the initial fare iq
$7.00 and a charteris $60 or $0..
Then you have expenses for the day
in Roseau; all this combines ta,
keep our people apart, Roseau mlst
sympathize with Portsmouth in: harn
difficulties
