WORLD NEW S BRIEFS
"Violence leads to revolution and Revolution to the loss of Liberty,"
said Pope Paul VI in his New Year's message. "Be men and not wolves."
He spoke out strongly against abortion and said he hoped for- a peace
"which would protect life in every way". ,. In-the year 1977, the
American people have grown fatter because of their dietary habits;
and the French have grown taller... 1977 was a year with several
bad earthquakes and a lot of hijacking. In 6ur view the best things -
of the year were England's improved prosperity and the get-together
of Egypt's President Sadat with President Begin of Israel.
Charlie Chaplin "Charlot the Great", born in London April 1889, died
at Christmastime and was quietly buried in Switzerland. "He was
,universal", said a great French newspaper simply. After a
long struggle and Court actions, Britain and France won their fight
for the huge Concorte airplane to land in New Yoik. The
Queen took the first ride in the new underground train connecting
Heathrow Airport with the heart of London. These trains will run
every four minutes and be of much help to travellers. A dozen million
passengers are expected to travel by them per ye&r.

The Methodist Church, bedecked by Mrs. Rhona Fingal with golden an-

down to add its own West Indian benison. The organist, Mrs.: Josephine

touch while we awaited the bride, who, of course, was twenty minutes
late, as was her right. (Everything was done according to tradition).
The bride wore heavy wnite lace and was given away by her father,

The reception was held at the FadelleS residence in Rose Street:
an open-air lunIheon party on the lawns of the rear garden in the shade
of a large awning. The groom's family had flown in from England en

and hospitality accorded- to them wherever they went. (Concluded on .4.)

THE PERFECT WEDDING from pages 1 & 3
The decorations at the home were ar-
ranged by Mrs. Eileen Shillingford.
Among the guests were Sir Louis Cools,
Lartigue, wfth his wife and daughters,
and many we.l-known members of Domin-
ica society a good contingent from
Marigot, Stpwe, the North..,visitors
from Guadeloupe and Surinam. Mrs.
Rosalind Volney and Mrs. Lorna Robin-
son helped the bride's mother; the
service, like all else, was immaculate!
Champagne flowed freely, and so
did speeches: the bride's father spoke
and so did her sister-in-law, young
Mrs. Mary Jonnings, to whom the guests
listened closely. And what laughter
and conversation' "Happy the bride
the sun shines on"
P8. ThO best man, Mr. Andrew
Spiere-(cousin of the groom) said his
only disappointment war having to re-
turn, t London and leave the beautiful
bridesmaids behind; so who knows,
there may be ANOTHER wedJing soon
-But thee would not be another
like this one. NEVER HAPPEN:

OUR fREMISR IS LATE -Hugh Lawrence
Some 6 or 7 years past when the
ex-Premier Leblanc was leader,I hap-
pened to.be watching the river near
to the old T.B. and observed some
people crossing from Goodwill to and.
from ROs'eau. At the same time I re-
membered the schoolchildren who had
to cross the old bridge perhaps four
times a day. I lost no time, but
wrote to one of the papers'suggesting
that a spring bridge should be erec-
ted there. At that time one would,
have cost aiout $7,000, but now the
cost will be about $12/$18 thousand
dollars.
On the 20th December 1977 Premier
Patrick John promised the people of
Gutter Village a spring bridge,which
we hope will not end only in a prom-
ise.pe

MASTER PETER CRIES AT HIS
C H R IS T N IN G
He was 38 days old, and he'lit-
erally bawled for twenty minutes
while the Archbishop of Canter-
bury was baptising him.
Prineess*.Anne's son, the Queen's;
first grandchild, wept tears on-
to the historic Honiton lace
chris -ening robe.
It was a modern party; modern
language version 6f the service,
and two Nursing Sisters (Delphine
Stephens and Zohra Ahrou) were,
with Mr. George Pinker (Gynaecol-
ogist) among the guests, who num-
bered 70 and drank champagne to let-
are health.-and happiness. Thirty
stayed to luncheon in Buckingham,
Palace then the baby, his par-
ents, and other members of the
Royal Family drove out to spend
Christmas at Windsor Qastle.
We are glad that Princess Alice
who did so much for the Uniy' .rsity
of the West Indies, had a front-
row seat. She is now 9A., and is
the infant's great-great-great-
aunt.

OUR TWO BOOK GIFTS
We have received with much joy a
copy of John Hammond's autobiography
from his sister, our close friend
Adele Emery, John Henry Hammond,had
the greatest ear for talent in
American musical history. Among his
discoveries: Billie Holiday,Count
Basie,Bob DylanjArttha Franklint
JHH, a descendant of Commodore
Vanderbilt,.had absolutely no prej-
udices and covered the Scottsboro
trials for The Nation. The book is
so fascinating that it nearly held
up publication of STAR this week.
More about it later.
The other book is, in weight and
content, slim. At last we now nave
a copy of When I Awake by Mark
Sylvester. (Concluded on page 6)
