Fr;Iday.. Nover1iber LL.. 1977


This has been a dull and gloomy
week for nearly everyone. Worst of
all were the interminable Govern-
ment speeches:- and these will con-
tinue as from Monday. Some list-
eners are hanging on waiting to
hear the Leader of the Opposition's
reply in the House. For ourselves
we could not bear staring at those
glum faces and listening to their
seldom informative repetitions.
National Day was cancelled out.

'The national state is no longer

Friay Novmbe 2, 197TH TR ae he

Please allow me space in your
column tp first congratulate our
"Little White Boy" by name Lennox
Honychiurh forhis short, to the
point anl superb talk. After hear-
Christian talking so much nonsense
for so long, I felt so ashamed of
so much stupidity coming from a
Minister of Education. The only
highlight of his nonsense was
when someone -told him that the
St,Mary's Academy was a Private
School. Poor old Christian was
gofig on like a very old grama-
phone record.
I am a 1iack woman and not too
titelligent, but can you please
tell me when is the Government
going tostart to tell us in this
debate why there should be no
Vote of No Confidence.
.How right Seraphin was when
he said I quote "They asked and
we gave, and they asked and we
gave". We are glad to know how
frightened they were of that mam-
moth display of Solidarity against
this Nonsense Government. Most
Dominicans no longer have any'
confidence in it, whatever the
result in the House. (Next col)

TAKSN E.C.Loblack
The voters of Dominica did not
heed my warning last election.
('r. Loblack had passed around a
5-point leaflet which included a
statement that Labour was repister-
ing voters after registration was
supposedly closed, and other mis-
demeanours). He goes on:-
They allowed the dirty shoe
Party to fool them with lies. How-
ever, I am willing to forgive
their mistake.
The next forthcoming election
will allow the voters to prove
themselves, for it is now clear
that only those who.have lost
their humanity will dare put an
X for the Labour Party Govt.
Oh, many people are asking
whether the wife of the Premier
has received or will receive the
$25.00 contribution (maternity)
which this Government promised
to 5ive to all mothers of children?
THE INTED NATIONST voted this week
against sale of arms to South Africa.
There are more timtims to come,
!but Dominicans are awake and they
are fed up. To Hon.Y.E.Charles,you
are the light burning in Dominica.
We pray for you. BLACKIE

- in 1976 1758 babies were born
in Dominica, the largest number
having been delivered to mothers
between 15- 29 (504! to mothers

born to mothers under 15. During
