THE PRIME MINISTER TALKS:- CNS &<.DB -
It will be noted on page three that
the Committee for Irtional Salvation
(with Union spokesmen) does not con-
sider itself dead at all, but thinks
the P.M.'s statement irresponsible
and provocative. Hon. O.Seraphin
made another radio speech on the sub-
ject, saying nothing had been heard
from the CNS since Hurricane David,
but that he remained committed to
the eleven principles drawn up by
The second half of his speech was
a- longish story about the closure cf
Dominica's radio during his absence
alriod and his disagreement with tIh
Chairman of Dominica Broadcasting
Corporation. He said that radio time
would have to be cut;in order to
control expenditure, and that the
role of the Chairman required urgent
attention. The talk just showed uP
a grand muddle, in our view.
Members of the CNS are about to

ADVICE WROM A CONSERVATIONIST IN CANADA: "If large areas of forest
have been flattened by hurricane David I do hope no one will dream
up some scheme to have them cleared. The only hope of the forest
recovering will be if those fallen-trees are allowed to stay where
they are" han3~1 YQU, P.B. Editor

FOOTBALL: GOALS GALORE The rosum-
ptica of the 1979 season has seen a
harvest of goals surprising after a
six week lay-'off. Spartans, take
pride of place with a. massive 8-3
thrashing of 7up Potters,- a real
shocker of an encounter, In the early
half of the season Spartans relied
on Jeffrey Lawrence for their goal
getting, but in this, gameit was a re-
velation to. see the younger players
regularly finding the back of the .
net, Lawrence contributed two: goals,
Bernard Joseph (he. got the winner
against the Bombers)got a hat-trick,
Cecil Lockhart bagged a couple but -
the outstanding. player? in that vint -
orys was Toussaint (formerly of Wineri
gct the.8th goal -just to show that:
he can als: sore besides making them
happen. For Potters, Ralph Richards
2 and Sylvester Anthony the third.
KANGAROOS AGAI3 DEFLATE THE BOMBERS -
DCP Hfarlem Bombers (1978 K.O. champs)
winners of the Preaident's trop-hy
thia season had their guns spiked far
the 2nd time when they played the 1
1978 league champions Pepiz Kensbo-
rough United. The first time was
against the valiant Spartanites.
The Bombers went into that match
as favourites, based on the fact that
Roy Murphy of Kensborough U. left ftr
Canada 10 days before the horror of
David. This was augmented when for
the first time Saints beat Kenabor-
ough, one week after Murphy left
Dominica, Harlem Bombers looked
well on their way when Kensborough's
Alick Charles headed one past his
own custodian Clatus Popo to put iar-
lem in only during the 4th minute's
play. Cecl "Abu" Elwin evened things
with a long right-footer some eleven
minutes later. A rough tackle from
Derek Green, and Elwin had to leave
the field for a few minutes whilst
Kenaborough continued with 10 men.
When Elwin came back his might was
soon felt as he put Kensborough in
the lead on the 43rd minute.
*STARSPORTS* continued. FOOTBALL.:
At six minutes in the 2nd half A.
Charles was at fault giving Harlem
a pentaty which Irving Benoit grac-
iously oonvertdd to equalize things.
Only 12. minutes later, Kenaborough
was again ii the lead and eventually
the match gained,through Don Hdrt- '
ACS Kens improved on previous oc-
casions to take their first win 3-2
against Spurs. Renold Winston netted
twice for Spurs, who led to the in-'
terval L, *XtaErp.ura had taken the
lead. The man responsible for Kens
rallying, though he didn't even
score was Hypolite, Who fathered the
goals for A.Alleyne and M.Richards
in the 2nd half.
In the 2nd division, Green Sleeves
netted 10. times against Plantations.
_Julius Timothy led with a hattrick.
