In recent week, three significant and encouraging events have
occurred in Dominica. A Dominican Conservation Society was established,
proposals for a National Museum were circulated for scrutiny, and one of
the most fascinating finds in the history of Dominican .archaeology came
to light!
'The need for a Conservation Society here in Dominica has long been
suggested by'the author, and by John Spector of the STAR. The new Society
launched last month should have its hands fUll, judging from the many
-problems that have emerged as a result of our neglect of our environment.
Much has been written in this paper on the need for a Dominican
Conservation Society or Association. It may suffice to note here that
the new Society will undoubtedly have enough material to keep it active
for a long, long time.
The long-awaited recommendations of a National Museum Committee un-
der the chairmanship of Mrs. Rita Riviere have been distributed for
scrutiny. Again, the need for such an institution has long been recog-
nized. Let us only hope that adequate planning will precede construction
of the physical and'0organizational structures,
What has been described by leading historian of Dominica Father
Prpesmans as "a very significant finding" was unearth by an amateur
archaeologist some-weeks ago at O'Park Bay. The item, a clay modelled
head, is believed. to be a Carib artifact, and is apparently the first
such recorded discovery in Dominica. The piece of sculpture is about
four inches long by two-andt-a-half inches wide, and displays two promin-
ent 'owl-like' eyes (painted red) with an unusually-shaped nose! It
might have served as a stopper for a clay jar, or as a staff-head.
O'Park has long been identified as a former Carib settlement, and
amateur collectors can literally scoop up bits of pottery from the, site.
The savannah which once sloped gently towards the Atlantic Ocean has now
been; so badly eroded that/ten to fifteen foot wall of easily weathered
soil is constantly being battered by the Atlantic surf. In fact, this
fragment of Carib artifapt was picked out of the face of the cliff some
eight feet from the surface.
It is hoped that an archaeologist now in Antigua (Dr. B. Rouse)will.
.be able to visit Dominica soon, so as to make recommendations for the.
systematic excavation of the site.
Meanwhile the Dominican Conservation Society met at the Dominica
Grammar School on Thursday evening, and among other projects formed
appropriate committees to deal with various aspects of conservation and
historical matters -- welcome and long overdue moves.
Now for the bad news: The Vieille Case Village Council, under the
chairmanship of Mr. John Royer (the Silent One) is currently making plans
for the bulldozing of the site referred to above. Mr. X.0. Leblano's new
house is located a few yards away from O'Park Bay and it is quite likely
that he is considering putting his fish-raising scheme into operation
at the probable expense of the taxpayer. For if, in fact, a swimming-
pool is being constructed, then why-isn't it being erected in the Village?
Thus from information obtained, it would see m that Mr. Leblanc, who
boasts of being so interested in preserving the culture of our land, is
apparently prepared to bring the bulldozers in to destroy invaluable
Garib treasures.

This is how our correspondents describe the Dupigny Technical College,
in an increasing flood of letters, too long to reproduce here even if
we wanted to do so, which is improbable. One states "it definitely pears
there is something unusual going on at the College as a casual radio.
talk between Radio Dominica and Staff and Students was stopped by Govt.
Surely the whole of Dominica is entitled to news of the College about
which nothing hardly is known?" Another states "Dominica's Watergate is
yet a further attempt by the Shoe Spenders to squander money under the-
veil of education... After 18 months, the people (from peasant "-see .3

Carnauba And Their 38 Children

Here's The Carnauba family -,m .d d auddhe 38 chlden,.

When Raisoundo Carnauba
and his wife decide to take
the family shopping, they
have to rent a bus.
That's because, according
to the Guinness Book of Re-
cords, Mrs. Carnauba is the
mother of the largest family
on earth.
The Carnaubas, who live in
Belent, Brazil, take a philosophical
outlook on the size of their family.
"If any more come along," said
the 58-year-old Raimundo, "and I
hope they do, we'll be delighted."
Added the 54-year-old Mrs,
Carnauba: "We both love children
and God has been good to us. They
have given us a lot of work and
worry, but they are worth it."
The Carnaubas have 24 girls and 14
boys. The most recent arrival is 3-
month-old Maria. The oldest is,
appropriately, 38.
The Carnaubas contend they enjoy
* every moment of their family life.

of world record the Oarnaubas have
established is that neither the man

nor the wife were involved in
another marriage, there are no
twins, and they have survived in-
Friends of the family, though,
have asked the Brazilian govern-
ment to grant the Carnaubas help in
coping with the giant food and
clothing expenses the. family has.
So far, the government hasn't
"Quite honestly, I don't know why
people make such a fuss about us,"
Mr. Carnauba said modestly. "After
all, we're just a normal, ordinary
That may be. But getting the
bathroom in the morning can't be all
that easy.
Despite the huge responsibilities
that go along with the huge family,
Mr. Carnauba said: "I love it. The
children are like any other kids.
They cry, fight, they get into
As time wears on, however, the
life at the Carnaubas' household has
become less hectic.
"Things are much easier now, as
the older ones look after thefr little
brothers and sisters," Mr, Carnauba
