GRIF an T 1;
This weekend a new pictorial
Dominica magazine named The Dominica
Link is appearing; started by Parry.
Bellot (whose Canadian college mag.
was also a-'Link') and edited bylbet
Sylvester, we understand.
Meanwhile we have received from
a friend (anonymous) in the French
Antilles a publication several
copies printed-in Guadeloupe on
fine white paper, and entirely de-
voted to Kreyol Franse (French
creole patois). It is an intellect-
ual exorcise to read GRIF an TE;for
one thing the writing is serious,
blacl; nationalist, does not neglect
the arts you find poetry and
Mizik (music) therein, comments on
the social condition of the people
of Matnik and Gwadloup. Moreover,
you are given lessons in the proper
writing of the French creole lang-
uage. I found that to read the
whole of this newspaper, I had to
read aloud a good West Indian ha- '
bit. In Limero (number) 3, you
have your first lesson in Kreyol-la:
Pou Li ek Ekri Kreyol-la
(to read & write creole)
Chaque Let Toujours ka fe an sel Djob
(Each letter always does only aE job)
Ch pa ka jin pran plas K,kon an mo

Kreyol nou ka ekri "nasion", "atan-
sion". NOTE it is pure phnertic
The people running GCrif an T- are
not just reviving a peasant language.
They are trying to elevate it into
cultural written communication. A
hard task, and one wonders whether
it is worth it- think of that word
djobl But it is symbolic of a de-
sire to separate from France, men-
tally if not actually.

FERDINAND FRAMPTON: T-.e Question that i-.ver was A:ked
A- ong r~ago as J-l.y 256th, R' ert-X A.Sorha-ndo wrote to M'.
FP-,nroton as P-*.oducer of Indopendence Forum DBS, offering congratulations
for bringing a debate on Independence to the Dominican people, Mr. Framp-
ton erroneously claimed, when Opposition charged him with BIAS in the
selection of letters read in the Forum, that Mr. Sorhaindots letter had
asked a question pertaining to a debate between the Premier and the
Leader of the Opposition, saying that d~rea s that question had been asked
and answered on,the Programme; also claiming that carbon copies Of the
letter had been addressed to the Premier and the Leader of the' Opposition,
and he interpreted the Premierts silence on it as meaning that Mr.
John did not want to answer the same question twiceL Mr. Framp'ton has
been challenged to read Mr.Sorhaindots letter in its entirety on the
programme; he has not done so. Here therefore the public can read it:-
"... have long advocated a more dynamic role for the radio in the
education of Dominicans on vital issues.
I hope that DBS-TV will (as soon as it has overcome its technical
problems) continue the debate with panel discussions. In fact, I would
like to suggest that you consider varying your "Forum" format, such (so)
that the public could be more actively involved. For instance, a panel
of spokesmen on the Independence issue, 'cow-prising of Govornrment repres-
entatives, Opposition, CSA, Youth Groups, Trade Unions, DAIC (to mention
a few) could meet in the DBS Studio to answer questions posed by listen-
ers over the telephone, I would like to suggest -further that the pro-
gra1ime be aired at.a time more convenient to most Dominicans, .7015 a..m
on a Sunday morning can hardly be considered prime time in Dominica? J b .
Please permit me to ask both the Prei.-er and the Leader'of other Op-
position to comment on the following observationst
1I find it rather interesting that the proposals 'for.a Constitution
for an Independent Dominica now receiving wide publicity contain prov-
isions to ensure that the PEOPLE have a direct say (by means of a
referendum) in the decision to alter practically every clause in the
Constitution; and yet, now that the present Constitution is being dras-
tically revised, the Government does not see it fit to involve the People
to the same extent, I would like to pose the queqtioi:
How can we ensure that the final Independence Constitution will be a
reflection of the wishes of the PEOPLE of Dominica, as opposed to the
wishes of the political overlords (on both sides of,the political fence)
Thanking you in anticipation of a response,
I am Sincerely yours

STARSPORTS (iont. from p.7) There has
been worrd from the Football Associat-
ion that the Trinidad Defence Force.
(which hosted our boys in Trinidad
last, year) may make a trip during the
month: but judging by the performance
of other teams and the fact that the
Christmas season is on us, its bets
off.
BASKETBALL: A sure bet, however, is
that the Martinique team is arriving
December 9 to, play that night against
a combined team of League Champions
Caroni and L.O.Champs Flames. On Sat-
urday night at 8.0 there will be hot

season league meanwhile carries on at
