GISCARD WAS RIGHT
There is now a lot of contention
about whether France "interfered"
in the rescue of some 2*000 Whites
and hundreds of Africans in Shaba
Province, Zaire. We think the
French President was right to save
those lives. Hundreds of murdered
people were left behind.

BRADSHAW'S Fl TERAL: GRAND, FANTASTIC and DIGNIFIfED
yes, the last rites and send off of the Chieftain of St.'Kitts
were all those things and more besides. It was the grandest funeral
ever remembered in the West Indies, planned in advance by the man who
died and carried out without a hitch by his lieutenants. Now Robert
Llewellyn Bradshaw lies in a flower-crammed vault alongside St.Kitts'
first locally-born Administrator Wigley, in the Garden of Springfield.
The Democrat tells of the touching goodbyes he said to his wife .and
relatives on departing from Golden Rock for London for two majbr oper-
ations. "The patient survived the surgical knife but the operations
left him very seriously incapacitated. In fact he was dying of cancer
against which he had long struggled in pain. On returning home he was
carried into his home. The constant vigilante of Doctors and a stream
of nurses kept him. alive but he suffered greatly. Although it was
said that he would attend a sitting of the House, nobody believed that.
He was now falling into comas. On Tuesday morning there was a rumour
that the Premier had died; but it was only'another coma. He returned to
life, called for his younger daughter, and drank coffee. However it was
clear that the battle was ending. The gallant fight reached a peaceful
conclusion on Tuesday 23rd May at 11.30 p.m.
Eobert lewellyn Bradshaw was born in the village of St.Pauls in 1916;
the only son of Mary Jane Francis, 4 domestic servant, who survives him.
His history in the Labour Movement is too 4ell known for us to recount
here, as also are the events of the Federal build-up and downfall. After
the latter crisis, he served as Minister without portfolio under Chief
Minister Southwell until he was elected first Premier of St. .itts.
On May 31st, his body (so pitifully reduced in size as to make "even
his enemies weep") was laid in State on the same floor of the Hoase of
Assembly. A very moving tribute was paid to Mr. Bradshaw by his wife,
Mildred, who spoke of his goodness, as a husband and father: "He was our
hero". At 2.45 n( the 31st 10,000 people found their way into Warner
Park, where the body of the late Premier lay like a Bishop, feet towards
the congregation. Anglican Bishop Orland Liddsay and Archdeacon Walker
assisted at the service, also Methodist Rev. Lloyd. All along the route
people were crying or cven screaming Mr. Southwell rave a fine eulogy,
speaking of how Bradshaw resisted defeat; had a'passion for learning,
a love of people and love of children; "his parish was the world", and
he longed to see the Caribbean integrated and united.'""During his last
moments he suffered considerable agony; at no time did his courage dimi-
nish". He said to Southwell then: "Hold strain." Southwell said: "The
work of Robert Bradshaw will be carried on by the team he left behind him ".
Bradshaw's n li.tary regaiia lay on his catafalque. The first singing
was. "The Battle Hymn of the Republic". All the Opposition'P.A.M.leaders
were present. Nine Ca7..jbean heads of State; from Britain,Lord Yorthville
(Don Chapman MP), Mr. Arthur (B~dos Chief) and Ted Rowlands. H.M. the
Queen had sent a personal able to Mrs. Bradshaw,expressing her grief.
A volley of shots and the last post relieved the tension; thousands
of people had crammed into the cemetery. The flowers overflowed into other
parts of the tombs' And so, as the poet Thomas Gray wrote:
"The paths ,rf glory lead but to the grave". (Elegy)

A 'DIVORCED PRESIDENT AFTER IN-DE-
PEt TNCE? by Hugh Lawrence
Dominica is already plagued or in-
fested with divorced leaders and
other divorcees otherwise. Accord-
to rumour, how can anyone expect
us to vote for a divorced man to
become our President after Indep-
endence, if it ever comes?
is there anywhere else in this
wide world we could ever hear of
such a regrettable thing? Unless
marriage is respected and upheld,
a country degenerates.
Our top leaders should be men
of high morals, and not men who
seep to live sweetly in the state
ef adultery (Mark X-Xl).
Let us always try to raise our
heads high, so that in the sight
of OGd, He shall be only teo
pleased with us.

to know who will have charge of
the ordering of materials, who will

made; and whether cur good seam-
stresses, dressmakers and designers

CORPUS CHRTSTI AT PORTPW'OTTH
On Sunday May 28th the community
of Portsmouth witnessed the cele-
bration of the Feast of Corpus
Christi, which had been suspended
for quite a while in this town.
The Ceremony was held for the first
time at Granvillia Village at the
Banana Shed, which was gaily and
beautifully adorned with a profus-
ion of flowers and the grounds and
surroundings, so spotlessly clean,
enhanced the beauty for a lovely
and vast crowd in attendance.
The Mass was officiated by Revd,
Father Chauvet, the Parish Priest,
who with his powerful voice filled
the splendid atmosphere with a
most impressive sermon; the weather
was exceedingly favourable. Towards
the end of the ceremony, the con-
gregation proceeded in a mass crowd
from Granvillia to the Church in
Portsmouth, accompanied by-. he
Minister driven in the center? of
the thick mass of people in s
draped taxi, standing and carrying
the Monstrance with the Blessed
Sacrament, to the joy and sais fac-
tion of the Catholics of Por`is coth.
The ceremony ended with the Bsne-
diction of the Blessed Sacrament.
