Ten people went to Britain at dif-
ferent times this week. We may.
consider, the Freedom three as pil-
grims, for they have gone to pre-
sent the case for:a referendum', so
that al1. the people of Dominica
Smay have an opportunity of voting
for or against Independence.' We
, say it is useless the Premier call-
Sing their mission'useless: in the
S past few days the. ne-time French
territory of Djibouti in _the impor-
tant area between Ethiopia and
Somalia was given the chance of a
referendum, and voted solidly for
Independence. What then is the Gov-
ernment of Dominica afraid of.,
Even as we go to press, that con-
troversial Prime Minister of Pakisa-
.:tan has;declared .that he will acc-
ept a referendum to decide-his fate.
(Ali Bhutto). 'In fact, referendum,
is the democratic way out.
But that is not' all. Our Freedom
representatives are not satisfied,
with the constitution' even as so
called 'amended' by Government.They,
are arguing on our beh..lf to.make
any potential independent government
a truly democratic one, Otherwise we
)may find that 1.984,has"' crept up on
us in 1977.

in Dominica who called at Office

,flowers and other tokens of sym-
pathy when Phe sudden death-of'
their .daughter Phina was disclosed..
We also especially'thank
those loving people.who telephoned
from Africa, America, Australia,
England,, France and the West Indian
Islands, and all those who have
written to us so far from overseas
The date and time of her
Memorial Service 111 be announCed

We have received an audited. ac,
count of this fund, which now shows
$35,000 invested in Barfincor; reg-
u'lar monthly .payments of $7,285 and
Christmas payments of $225. The
graves 'of the victims in the R.C,
cemetery have been 'enclosed, and
a memorial bearing their names, will
(eventually be erected, Children's .
tuition fees have been paid, and
medical expenses met. The Committee
should really be congratulated on
the care taken over the survivors.
The Committee thanks all helpers.

A' row broke rout in the House of
Commons when it was announced that
Mr. Peter Jay, son-in-law of the
British Prime-Minister, was appointed

Washington. Sir A. Ramsbothamr the
retiring Ambassador, is now to be
Governor of Bermuda.
