Dominica Freedom Party
The Party winds up its campaign for the
iRoseau Town Council Election with a huge
iPblic meeting in Freedom Street, Lagon, on
Monday night, 25th October, at 8. 30 p.m.
All the Partys big guns will operate on that
night and the right-thinking people of the whole t
muniispality of Roseau, that is, all those who wish
to see Roseau continue to be clean and to go for- !
vard, are cordially invited to listen to this meeting, t

Exactly one calendar month ago from the date of this publication,
the Leblanc Party/Government made detailed preparations for decimating
the Roseau population if the people had only turned out, as long previous-
ly arranged, to make a peaceful demonstration against proposed legislation
considered by them inimical to their interests. One month later, the same
Government/Party is inviting the same Roseau people to return it as the
governing body of the same city's Town Council.
This kind of schitzophrenic political behaviour is another example
of the long and widely held belief by the Leblanc Party that the people
of Dominica are easily manipulated, having weak minds, wills and memories.
The leader of that Party has in fact been known repeatedly to say that the
memory of Dominicans is no stronger than that of yard fowls. He appears to
have a point there, for it is doubtful whether in any other community, a
people would even countenance the representatives, overt or covert, of a
Party which, four weeks previously, had thoughts and desires of murder in
its heart towards the people among whom it exists.
This columnist can say with full knowledge and authority that the
result of next week's Roseau Town Council election will be a turning point
in the history and affairs of Dominica. This is no exaggeration and I can-
not say more, but the Leblanc Party recognizes this, to judge by their
feverish campaigning.
Not satisfied with the deployment of the most sophisticated instru-
ments of physical destruction against its citizens last 23rd September,
the ruling Party has since then outlined in its proposed Bank Act the
measures it proposes to take to bring the savings of the people all the
people under its scrutiny and control. Incidentally, for the benefit of
the few nitwits and Government stooges who would wish to convince the up-
wary that the Government does not propose to look at individual accounts'
in the banks, let me quote the relevant Section. The underlinings are mine
and indicate the operative words.
"17.(1) Every bank or credit institution shall furnish to the Authority-
or the Minister at such times and in such form as the Minister or tho
Authority may prescribe, all information and data on its operations
in the State...

(3)-The Minister or the Authority may publish in whole or in part
at such times as it may determine, any information or data furnished
under subsection (1) of this section, except that no information or
data shall be published which might disclose the affairs of a bank
or of a customer of a bank unless the consent of that bank or
customer has been obtained."

When we look back upon the performance of the Leblanc/Labour Town
Councils which immediately preceded the existing Freedom Party-ruled Town
Council, dishonesty and inefficiency in administration stand out like sore
thumbs. This was the period when the funds of the Town Council were played ;
in by some members for their own private use. What was even worse was
that the Central Government of the same Party took no steps to discourage
such improprieties. In fact, we can in all truth say that it encouraged
them when we recall that it reinstated a Mayor who had had to-resign when
financial improprieties by him were brought to light by a member of the
Council not belonging to the ruling Party.
Then we recall the mountains of rotting rubbish which decorated the
streets of Roseau in the period of the last Leblanc/Labour Town Council
which then had two Ministers as members. The unsightliness of the tovn is
still fresh in memories. Then in the midst of such nastiness, the members
of the offending Town Council deserted the body and left it to their
Freedom Party successors to bring some order and cleanliness to the capital
city. (Concluded on Page Four)

NEXT WEEK'S ELECTION" by ANDROCLES continued from page two
Everyone has noted the marked change in the appearance of Roseau after one
year of Freedom Party administration.
Next, the Leblanc Government filched the lands, bought by the Town
Council, for its own scheme the building of a Market which it proceeded
to take away from the traditional control of the Town Council and entrust
to its Marketing Board composed of its political adherents. This is the
land which the present Town Council planned on selling in order to finance
the erection of a Town Hall and to modernize Windsor Park. The calling upon
Government by the Council to pay for the lands it has illegally occupied
was the proxiijate and effective cause of the recent rape of the Constitution
of the Roseau Town Council. The Government would have preferred to use the
purchase money for rewarding its activists and stooges. Thus it is quite
certain that the main reason for the Government having the nerve and the
brass to contest the Roseau Town Council Election next Tuesday AFTER THE
win it would not pay for the lands which have been bought from the rates
and taxes of the citizens of Roseau, not from the funds of Government.
So the issue is quite clear: town neglect, dirt, mismanagement,finan-
cial improprieties, on the one hand; improved appearance, impeccable finan-
cial management, plans for future development, devotion to the interests of
the people of Roseau, on the other. The people of Roseau must regard next
week s Town Council election as something almost as important as a General
Election and- every registered voter should make it a point of duty to come
out and vote, and in so doing (1) give a vote for each of the five (5) can-
didates of the Freedom Party and (2) give a resounding'rebuff to the Leb~Hae
Party for the many crimes it has committed and planned against the people -
Sof Roseau in particular and of Dominica in general.
There has been much dissatisfaction with the award of the Dominica
Island Scholarship for 1971. I am not in a position to express a view dne
way or the other, and when I am in this situation I hold my fire. But there
is no doubt that there has been engendered feeling almost amounting to bit.-
terness over the results. One of the thinI I have been hearing is that in
recent times the Government changed th 1 C of the scholarship but then
proceeded to award this year's Scholarship on the basis of the earlier re-
quirement. I hope the Government is in a position to deny this, otherwise
an injustice has been done if different individuals topped the list under
the different bases.
This brings me to what I really wish to say about the recent award of
scholarships. I have learned on the best possible authority and with consid-
erable horror that a young girl, Alfreda Bellot, who topped the Convent High
School's list of candidates for the Dominica Scholarship but who Was beaten
by some boys -filed to get one of the many non-competitive awards though her
academic E'erformance and rating is higher in some cases, much higher -
than that of many on the list to whom Government gave or recommended schol-
arships to university. This is a shocking state of affairs and is only one
more instance of the trend that things are taking in Dominica.
Can you imagine the anguish and desolation of feeling which enters a
young heart so treated? What an introduction of youth to its Government!
Personally, I feel that depriving a young student of his/her just deserts
is of the same moral order as oppression of the poor and depriving the
labourer of his wages.
If I have been wrong in my facts, I shall gladly and humbly withdraw
what I have said, but if I am correct, what an indictment of a Government'
Two pleasing appointments on the medical side are that of Dr. Peter
Bellot, Dominica-born graduate of UWI, to Marigot Hospital & District; and
a much-needed Specialist Psychistrist, Dr. C.M.H. Nunn (from-Britain) who is
"on loan" to the State for one year to advise and develop establishment of

Druggists can expect a sharp rise
in the contraceptive business. Nat-
lonal Day is around the corner, and
the festivities that go with it; it
is a sure bet that most everyone
will want to do more than his own
thing. It is reported that during
the Carnival season, contraceptives
are at a premium and that all sup-
plies are sold out by Samedi Gras.
Let's face it, People are going to
engage in sexual relations no mat-
ter what. Maybe it's the tropic heat.
But I side with the group which
chooses the lesser of two evils" &
practises birth control instead of
experiencing'the agony and anguish
and conferring the misery whichgoes
with an unwanted pregnancy. Of course
the ethics involved are debatable.
Because of an expose in this col-
umn last week, I hear that some wives
now regularly check the odometer of
the family automobile to determine
just how far'Dad has travelled. One
enterprising young man has decided
to cash in on the infidelity situa-
,tion by going into the espionage el-
ectronics business. He plans to off-
er wives (or husbands) a tiny elec-
tronic device which emits a contin-
uous"beep beep".
