POtITICIANS IN A ,HURRY .
No doubt some Dominicans sympath-
ise with Ministers of the Interim
Government who want 4Britain to hand
over the promised 10 million (inde-
pendence) sum promised, so that their
constituents may benefit before the
general election. But this money
was always promised in stages to be
approved by ooth the local Govern-
Sment and the British Government. 1o
small country can undertake too many
projects at one. We are confident
that the money will be forthcoming.

Because the Dominica Labour Party is
used- to manipulating its eleotorai -
machinery, it has complained that
the Dominica Freedom Party is doing
the same thing.

A SOCIAL-DEMOCRATIC VIEW by Carl

The Frenchman J-E Revel, has descri-
bed social democracy as "a political
-economic system that has rather ef-
fectively -reconciled a~cialism, free-
dom, and self-government; that has
substantial achievements in both tihe
economy and social justice to its
credit; a system that.offers the
added advantage of existing."
the social-dembcratic system des-
cribed... is not totalitbatian. It is
anti-totalitarian. And it is not
capitalist, though it includes cap-

MARRIAGE IS NOT A PLAYTHING

LA RONDE DES CUISIN.I ER
A Wonderful Fete: by May Christian
Anyone who has lived in Guadeloupe
would know about "La Ronde des Cuis-
inierea". Say it in English?- The
Cooks' Circle. This respected fete,
already in its sixtieth yIc;, in-
cludes bakers, and is celebJ ted on
August 10th, anniversary of the Peast
of Saint' Laurent, their lPtron, (Our
readers may remember the guossome
history of this Roman'Martyr who died
for the Ch istian faith, being roast-
ed alive on a gridiron by the pagans.)
Every year the Society in Guadel-
oupe, which is both vibrant and is-
land wide, goes on parade. Over
1,000 members attend a High Maas at
the Po -ite-A-Pitre Cathedral at
Basse-Terre, dressed in colourful
douillettes or native costumes, car-
rying roasted meats, cakes. and pud-
dings plus miniature pots and pans
and other kitchen utensils as symbols
of their work.
On marching round town with music,
they end up at the Palais de Mutualitb
building, there to drink the vin
d&honneur with special guests, and
listen to speeches; afterwards din-

MARRIAGE ... by Hugh Lawrence (col.1)
The men especially think that when they
take an oath of marriage, they obtain
a licence to beat up their wives and
take up a life of concubinage. Some
wives (thoughrmuch fewer) get very
slack, and go enjoying a free and
worldly life.
Marriage is a sacred thing, and not
a.playboy thing, for St.Paul says, it
is better to be'married than to be
burnt. Let us all hope and pray that
with so many changes taking place in
this wide world, married couples will
give to this great sacrament t moral
and serious thought. This change of
mind and '.h~ta would also help a
.great deal to remove some of the
main c ases which our indepenaenc~
has brought us.
