After all the faldidah of Mon-
'day, We havereceived many enquir-
ies as to when the Freedom three
-will be returning to Dominica. The
people want to hear from them what
took place in London.
W e are glad to say that Hon.M.
E.CXhiri~ e and Fons.A.Moise and L.
Honychurch will be landing at Mel-
ville Hall Airport by the late aft-
ernoon plane on Sunday 29th. Their
message said: -ndependence .postpon-
ed next year. Meeting Dominican-
.in Britain and British M.P.s.",
So there is only a short time
to wait before they call a meeting
and give you-all their account.

The h-wse met this week; we were
Snot present, but heard 'it was more
or less a one-party affair.:weakly
Attended. P .n vens asked if. the
large scale Yi try would affect
his farmer friends; but nobody ap-
pears to have been worried about
the effect on Dominioa's ecology.
Students can under a new Act, now
get aid for their approved corres-
pondence courses abroad,

On Wednesday we received a phone
call from New York, and it was
moving to hear how deeply grieved
Ed Scobie was-about the'death of
our daughter Phina, whom he first
saw when she was -a student at Ox-
.ford University. Since we do not
have Scobie's, address, will some-
one please pass him their copy of
this paper, with heartfelt thanks.'

ple of 'any Associat6d State freely
expressed their will and desire for
independence? ...Obviously. not,and
when constitutions were prepared
for the Associated States,this sit-
uation was foreseen. Safeguards
were included'to insure that the
"will and.desire" .of the people
would' prevail."

-We deeply regret to announce,
the death of Dental Surgeon'Dr.
Bruce Stuart, which took place.
at Princess Margaret Hospital to-
day, Friday, just after 3 a.A.,
following a stroke.
Bruce Stuart was born in Pol-
and. under the 'name of. Slavonk'a;
he was one'of-the brave Poles
who got away"to Scotland., where.
he met and married his wife,Grace.
They have one son, Richard, who
is in the Mierchant Navy Seryice.
-On becqomng a British national,
Dr. changed his name and
settled in Dominica. He was 71
-when he died, but seemed much
younger. Of late he was the
"squire" of old St.Aroment House.,
..We have often.heard people
from abroad praise his skill and
efficiency as a dental surgeon and
dentist; they said it-was equal
to the best treatment in any land.
He was blunt and forthright
. in his eewS, a loyal friend, and
,.extremely kind behind his blunt
words. ,we cannot imagine how
Many people will miss him now.
that he has -gone from us.

In order to assist the Dominica
Banana Growers'. Association,Bar-
clays Bank Internation has given
this sum towards a training cotrneo
for Boxing.Plant Supervisors.
The course will be supervised
by Dominica's Management Consul-
tants Ltd, in two parts of five
days each

Our popular columnist, one-
time Dominica Minister of Health
& Education Wills Stevens,returned
to his home from P.M.H. in apain-
wracked .condition, asd .no improve-
ment has so far been, mentioned.
Welsend him,our best wishes and
our kindest thoughts.

In the article "The Cost of It::
4ll" (Star,May 20), I said that
some very strange things are happen-
ing in our Island. What actually
did the Colonel bring back on Mon-.
day? 'Last Friday morning the talk
all over town was that Independence
was in the bag; by afternoon it was
in doubt that the.delegation would
return with. Independence. By At-
urday *the news was being spread all:
over Roseau and. beyond that Monday.
May 23rd would be ALL FOOL'S DAY.
Now we know:that the"delegation
did not get exactly what they had
gone .for: that was Independence on
2rid Nov. 1977; they say they will
get it by January 1978.
What was farcical, and difficult
S to understand,was that having part-
ly failed in their-mission,Govern-
ment decided-to still go ahead with
the.plans they had made before they
left for the United Kingdomj Recep-
tion at the Airport, motorcade,tell-
ing teachers to see that children
were assembled at Windsor Park lan
Music Eovers Band and a Steel. Band
which rumour says dost $500.
I am afraid that apart from Mem-
oire Poule, Dominicans love nothing
more than Freeness and Bo6 Temps;
and if they had heard that an in-
vading force had landed at Melville
Hall Airport, that there was a for-
eign warship off the Roseeu Road-
stead and one off Goodwill, they
would have acted the same way,Jump-
,up. As we witnessed>'. at Irving's
reception, Patrick can fool them at
any time just give them a holi-
day and -jump-up. AX P Y

U.K. talks again on Dominican
Independence; the delegates, includ-
ed Mr. Patrick Jihn, Premier, and
Opposition Leader Miss Eugenia
Charles. Mr. Luard (U.K.) said
that their first task would be to
examine the Constitution as to what
changes would be necessary to conr
vert it into a Constitution for

It is widely said that in a
.few decades to come, the whole
world will suffer from a -hortagp
of water. This shortage is el-
re-ady being felt in some parts'
of the Caribbean.
Flat countries like Barbados
-and Antigua which have no forests
c'an rnly depend on distillation
of sea water.
-I always had a fear when DOM-
CAN started fellinp our huge trees
in'the forests; if this is to
recommence (and there is a Timber
Bill in the House of Assembly
this week), -and if it continues
for any length of time, we too
at some future date will surely
suffer. -
Editor's Note: We couldn't agree
with you more.

Will appear NEXT WEEK in ETSR.
Premier Patrick John put Ports-
mouth in a useless and "senseless
.gaiety on Monday; although there was
an appearance of a very big crowd,
that big crowd was comprised mostly
of school-children and Secondary
School students; there was a band-
stand with music throughout the
whole day. Members of all Village
Councils in the North seem to have
been invited to Portsmouth. John's
motorcade had-many cars, and talks
by two or three Ministers preceded
his address, The Minister of do'rks
(HI.Douglas) in his outrageous talk
of his disappointment bver 2nd Nov,
Independence was fierce, Said he:
"Independence in January for Domin-
ica is a must; If we don't get it
we will take it. .
Poor'John tried his utmost to
convince the people of his' keen in-
