WATERGATE EXPOSURE by John Spector
Although American politics (other
than spectacular assassinations) gener-
ally leave Dominicans apathetiocnotice
has been taken of the Uatergate Scandal
This is because those here who listen
and read news critically feel that it
may have some relevance to our scene.
I have 'heard friends say 'this week -
"what we want is a Wa-tergate Exposure""
followed by a sigh -' "Ibut ie may never
get it,, they love their jobs andmoney
Stood much.." Ours is a little world com-
Nto the hugeness-of 'Washifnton machin-
ations in the United'States. But the
shady attempt of U,.S."Presidential ad-
visers to spy on and smear their Demo-
cratic rivals and then to cover up and
lie makes people here reflect on the
attempts to turn the heroic 16th of
December into a crimih'al lobt, of'the
waste of local and overseas money.sand
many other things which'will come out
in the course of time.,. perhaps* One
of the reasons why"Ministers and rul-
ing members hold on to office so inten-
sely is that they don't want their suc-
cessors to know all that went on during
their tenure .. .
So although'I did not go into mourn-
ing oniMay Day, like I1rA., Frederick
Joseph, Gen.Sec. of the Dominica.Amal-
gamated Workers Union,. I certainly went
into retreat in a mok, of gloom caused.
by the condition of drought-struck
Dominica. To sweeten the week there
was information on more monetary aid
to this State# but"t'hat did not bring
comfort to the.average Dominican(save
those on the new feeder road routes)
for the average man knows and is grate-
ful for Commonwealth and bank- aid and
loans, but he wants to know also that
the hand-outs are properly spent, but
feels increasingly that they are NOT.
What really runs up the cost of liv-
ing is the quiet way the Government in-
creases our expenses by 'th6 use of SRO
(Statutory Rules & Orders), which can
be made by a Minister or by the Govern-
or without reference or debate in the
House of Assembly.' For a start look
at SRO I for 1973' which lets the Cen-
tral Water Authority collect Water
rates from everyone. o"the supply sys-
tem six months in advance '(and the -
rates will seem pretty" teep to those
used to getting their water free).
SRO 2 jacks up the'dtities on gasoline
and beer (the country people know how
fares'or the trucks have gone up);
SRO 4, 3 weeks later, reduces the gas-
oline duty again, but. gets'the revenue
back on sweet drinks (JU-C, Coke etc.)

4EM iRGE NCY ACTION



SAFE DRIVING TIPS:


(1) Your Brakes Fail--
Pump brakes. Coast in low gear, then use hand brake. On a
sideswipe the bank or head for a 'shallow ditch, if available,


hill-


(2) You Go Into a Skid-
Take foot off accelerator. Never hit brakes-, but pump them i-apidly. Turn
wheels into-jiot away from--the direction of a rear-end skid.
(3) Your Accelerator Sticks-
Try to pull the ptdal up with your toe-not your hand. If unsuccessful.
turn off ignition and apply brakes.
(4) Yotir Headlights Go Out-
Hold a straight steering course and brake hard. Ea.e off road. lTse flash-
light to warn on-coming traffic.
(5) You Have a Blowout--
*Keep a firm and steady grip on steering wheel since car will pull to one
side (front tyre out) or weave (bmck tyre out). Don't slam on brakes--
brake .xsmothly.

(6) Your Hood Flies Up--
Brake smoothly, sensee off road. Use side windows for steering reference.

(7) You Must Stop on a Highway-
Signal slow down; pull off the road; leave fromit, rear, interior, and emer-
g eeney lights on in dusk, darkness. or had weather.

(8) Your Car Catches Fire-
Get jack handle, from trunk and rip loose burning ivires--don't touch !
Smother wires with clothing. If fire is spreading, get away quick-gag
tank will explode.

(9) You Are On A Collision Course-
Your blood chills-a head-on erash looms. This is the, worst road disaster.
Keep your wits. Brake hard. Heal for the left (or right) shoulder-give
up the. entire road. Go off road entirely-into a ditch if necessary-
even a roll-over is better than the deadly head-on collision .


Protect Your Car:
Try not to park on dark or deserted streets.
Take your keys out of the ignition and make sure the doors are
locked when you leave your car.
Lock any packages in the trunk or take them with you,
Protect Yourself from Pickpockets;
Do not display large sums of money in public.
Men-in large crowds it is best for you not to keep your wallet in
a hip pocket, even if it is buttoned. If you are jostled while
in a crowd, make sure your wallet is yet in place.
Women--do not lay your handbag on a counter or floor or in a
shopping cart while making purchases. Do not leave your purse on
a seat in 'a public place of assembly. When carrying a load of
packages, keep your purse next to your body.
Beware particularly of strangers who try to put their. hands on
you. Some may claim that they want to assist you in some way;
others may describe their own ailments by touching your body.
Such- persons may be pickpockets cleverly trying to remove your
money.
