It seems glear that 1978's
Carnival, with such short time
for preparation, will be pleasant,
individualistic and unprovocative:
it is not linked either to nat-
ionalism or independence. Every-
one will do his or her own thing'
Perhaps it may approximate with
the old-time carnivals when people
did as they pleased.- within lim-
its, and when things were happier
and more free. We hope so.

Everything President Carter, says-,
indirectly affects the whole world
- he is definitely not a "stand-
aside" President. His announcement
of $25 billion US rebate of taxes
in America, and big schemes to
give employment to youth,particul-
arly Black youth, did not however
arouse response among the moneymen
- the dollar dropped a bit.Con-
Press felt that he had failed to
suggest programmes to cope with
economic-social problems.

This week British Frigate Eskimo,
which has already visited Dominica,
was in port from 17th-18th Jan.acc.
T'by tanker PFA Tidereach.
All members are reminded of the
regular monthly meeting on 2Lth
January,4.30 pm at Miss Charles'
office. Plans for 1978 will be
discussed: a dance and an inde-
pendence stminar, & other matters.

iIn the Supreme Court this week,
two murderers have been relatively
fortunate: they .will .not have to
pay the Death penalty. One was
declared "guilty but insane" and
the other "unfit to plead".
The man who brutally murdered
TT.S. citizen Ivan Morch-and (one
Merrifield Nicholas), prosecuted
by Mr. David Roland, was adjudged
after a lengthy summing-up by
Judge W.Bruno as guilty but incrae.
Psychiatrist Dr. John Royer had
refused to examine him during the
proceedings.. The public 'was in
cbnflict over the ver'dict.-
Ivan Fontaine, of whom Dr:Rover
testified that "the prisoner is a
psychotic pchitzophrenic" was ad-
judged "unfit to plead". Aged 27,
he had murdered his brother David.

An Ecuador plane was hijacked to
Cuba; all passengers & crew safe.
An internal-flight Pakistani air-
plane, hijacked and
Karachi, had $100,000 demanded by
the terrorists.

A settlement not far from Soweto and
Johannesburg was bulldozed by South
African troops and its "squatters:'
ordered back to their homeland.C00
women accepted train fates back.
Homes were broken down "because of
bad and insanitary conditions".
Women are not allowed to live there

There will be a general election
in France in March 1978. The coun-'
try is cut into four electoral
camps. The dominant party appears
to be the RPR Gaulliste (Rassemble-
ment Pour la Republicqe) led by
one-time P.M. Jacques Chirac, now
Mayor of Paris. Runner-up seems to
be RP (Parti Republicain) of which
the French-President, M.Valery Gis-
card d'Estaing is the leader; the
CDS (Centre des Democrates Sociaux)
led by M.Jean Lacanuet; and the
Left M. Francois Mitterand's
Socialist Party (he hopes to win
160 seats this time) and the Com-
munists, led by M.Georges Marchais
(P.C.F). The Socialists P- Communists
are divided on several issues.
There are )91 Deputes in the
French National Assembly, two eadh
from Martinique and Guadeloupe.
In a recent popularity poll,
55 per cent of French people de-
clared themselves in favour of
President Giscard and only 42 per
cent in favour of Prime Minister
Raymond Barre.

Canada is to provide St. Lucia with
just under $2,125,000 for the set-
ting up of a fisheries project.
Four French officials of Guadeloupe
Equipment came to Dominica recently
to see how the work on the French
endowed stadium was petting on.
With them came a representative of
the contractual firm. Discussions
were held with the Dep.Premier and
Communications officials, the Chief
Agricultural Officer and the Exec.
Sec. of the National Sports Council.
The stadium is being constructed by
France, Dominica being responsible
for site,grading,landscaping, access
roads, electricity and water.

We learn from "France Antilles"
that an American guitar player
who is paralysed in both legs has
made a fortune by inventing a
sound which makes rats and crawling
vermin such as Qockroaches flee.
Quite by chance Bob Brown made
the"discovery. He was building up
an electric guitar in his garage
when he let fly certain chords
which produced a strident sound,
spreading terror among the rats
in his neighbourhood.
Since then, Yr. Brown has com-
mercialised his discovery. The sale
of a little electrical box repro-
ducing the strident sound has
brought him in $80,0,000 S last
