TOURIST BOARD WRITES
TO MINISTER
We reprint below an Important letter directed by the
Demitcas Tourist Board to the Minister of Trade & Indagl t
Dear Sir,
At its last meeting the Board discussed in detail So -
the question of a Dominica National Park p
cular noe was aken of the publication by
National Conseriition Foundation, "Dominica a
Chance for a Choice". i'


Members of the Board were in unasnimous
agreement in their resolution, to support and: stro-
ngly urge Government to take action on the re-
commendations in the publication without delay
Application for assistance can then be made' to
the various organizations which all appear willing
to assist Dominica in the formation and adminis-
tratiqn of his Park.

The Board feds very strongly that the eta.
blishment of a Dominica National Park would: .

i) Guarantee, by proper and permanent legisla-
tioa, that the prime tourist attractions of the is-
- land, that is to say the forests and rivers, will be
Protected for years to come,
a) Ensure that by the formation of such a Park,
the "commercialization" found on other is-
lands will be kept to a minimum
3) Attract the type of tourist who is extremely
appreciative of the island and its people,
4) Attract a great deal of publicity from writers,
scientists,, naturalists, botanists, ect by en-
Shancing the island's "different" status.

But, most important, it would be of great
benefit to the people of Dominica, especially for
future generations, in that the legislation would
provide recreational areas for Domiinicaas, en-
courage interest in natural studies of the island,
protect water supplies and electric power sources,
and, through an increased tourist industry, cre-
ate many new employment opp3rtuanities.

The ]Board urges Government to seriously con-
sider these recommendations, and to take the ne-
cessazy action as soon as possible.
Yours truly,

F. A. Baron,'
Chairman.

FISH ING TRAGEDY


Two fishermen from Bat:

As ; result of its growing unpopularity, the/
Governic has become afraid of the electorate
and has refused to announce i date of the
sections which everybody is anxiously waiting to
hear. It has further created a situation where

seems ready to intimidate those Wiho attempt to

by Ian Tickle (SiAn Proan News)

People are 'always asking what is. the' real difference
between right-wing and left-wing dictatorships. Anrd the correct answer
seems to' be: not much. It seems as though this is not the right scrt
of distinction to make when talking about dictatorships. The right sort
of distinction can only be one connected with the gocd of the peopi.;
and it will invariably be found that the sort of dictatorship which is
generally accepted outside a country as being for the temporary good
of the people of that country is one which cannot be rigidly classi-
fied as right-wing or left-wing. The ,ones which can be so labelled are
usually ,aggressive in their intent in- -:imost left-wing dictatorships
aggressive both inside and outside the country, and in most right-wing
dictatorships st inside the country.


Furthermore, because there is not inherently much difference
between these two kinds of dictatorships, it. is relatively easy for
them to align themselves with death other. And because they do not
depend on the popular, wil.1 they can do this at a moment's notice with-
out asking for anyone's permission through t.he performance zf free
elections.
