OTCT: Because they were told that
their Principal (now in England)
had been dismissed and replaced,
the students of WHS staged a walk-
out. The Head Girl says she has
heard to this effect from the al-
leged dismissed Headmistress.
Mr. D. Jamieson,Canadian External
Affairs Minister, told Canadians
today that 15 Soviet officials who
were caught spying (trapped by
RCMP members to whom they paid
$30,500 for "information of non-
importance" on one occasior,were
put oat of the country. Soviet re-
actions not yet forthcoming.

It was good, despite or perhaps be4-0
cause of the obstructionist attit-
ude of DBS and Government towards
favourite Calypsonians and the re-
saltant lack of air-publicity.
We consider this year's Carnival
as extremely free, mild and individ-
ualist. The weather was fine, the
hats (much admired by foreign visi-
tors for their exuberance and ingen-
uity) sparkled like constellations
when viewed from balconies; the
modest and charming queens bore up
well in their difficult progress
through the town of Roseau; there
was much flourishing of the banned
calypsoes and of course Kitchener's
Sugar Bum-Bum was heard repeated ad
nauseum; a wit told us that DBS hi-3
just put on a long rota of Trinidad
stale calypsoes and locked up the
A little sadness was caused: one
person was stabbed; and alarm was
caused by the disappearance of a
young girl (16), a witness in a re-
cent murder case, while out with her
parents on Tuesday. On Thursday,how-
ever, she was discovered...where do
you think? In the Bath Estate hous-
ing section.
SThose calrpsoes: Spider's Sen-
chai Ferdinand won the Road March
Prize of $300; Zeye's win as Calyp-
so King (his calypso, Gravedigger)
won him $800. Robin was in the top 3.
A'Labour' legislator flashed a gun at*
the splendid CSA gowned academics of
Goodwill Parish University. CHS band
was delightful, and Black Sam really
l7v-ly anl musiWcl. So all in all we
must say obra-v to Iominica's c arrival


We do not claim carnival maaiise
for this very small Star. Our
younger adopted Carib son has been
seriously ill with a mysterious
fever all this week, that is the
reason.Robbie is slightly better
today, Priday.

CARNIVAL 1978 -Hugh Lawrence
We can really boast that
Carnival '78 was a great suc-
cess, I wish to congratulate
all the organizers with no ex-
ception, who had the courage at
such a short space of time to
see that this festivity took
place at its usual time.
It was rumoured (like in St.
Lucia) that it would have to be
postponed until May.
We must admit that Carnival
here is part of us. Even nature
gave its help, for
was at its best.
I say to one and all, hearty

As one who was once a non-suc-
cessful Beauty Queen contestant,
I want to applaud-.those -young
ladies for coming forward at short
notice, and playing their parts
so bravely. They were not rich
girls heavily subsidized. And they
went through.the hot sunny streets
of Roseau most gracefully and
bravely (and: slowly.). My favour-
ite was Miss.Cuffy who only placed
2th; But I..congratulate them one
and all.
And by the way, what about their
prizes? I haven't heard anything
about tha.t... do hope the winner
and her runners-up get SOMETHING.
S.W. Dominica.

Asked by CAYA representative dur-
ing the visit of a British Official
(on Constitutional matters)whether
she .thought that positions between
Got.. and. Opposition could be eas-
ily bridRWed,Hon.Eugenia Charles
said: "TIdon't think so. We are
very far Pnart."
