The majority of our:readers will regard
this evident crack in iho Party hierarchy
with considerable satif&action and expectation.

Only two< cheeks
WE ARE enjoined by the Lord Himself that if we are smitten
on one cheek by an assailant, we should turn the other cheek for
another blow.
A father, pointing out to hil son the rules of life to be
followed, urged him to observe this practice in his human
relations.
"But, remember, son," the father emphasized, "You have only
two cheeks."
By the time a man has been smitten twice from the same
direction he is supposed to have sense enough to guard against a
third blow.
I don't think God ever intended that Christian charity should
extend to the point where a maI is expected to lie down and
allow his enemies to walk all over him.
SThis kind of behaviour is bad for the man who is attacked and
also for his attacker who is thereby encouraged to abuse the
rights of others and establish dictatorial control over his
surroundings.
'i is because people are afraid and they crawl on their bellies in
the .presence of an aggressor that national dictatorships can be
established and maintained.

NEXT TUESDAY Mr. Justice Ronvick will de-
liver his verdict on the case testing the
validity of the Emergency Powers Act and
rules and regulations under it. The 9-day
hearing, with Mr. Koith Alloyno QC, Mr.
Brian Alleyno and Miss Eugonia Charles ap-
pearing for the applicants (three C.S.A.
officials under a form of house arrest)
drew auny tons listonors to the hearings.

ST4TE OF EMEIRGENC


When this mis announced, Miss Charles
told tho House that Dominica was already
"tho laughing stock of the Cdaribboan and
the World" and that such extension would .
only increase this impression. The State
of Emergency was quite unnecessary, she
declared, and was not only killing the
economy of the country but would have fart
roaehiing roporcussions taking sevoral
years to got over. (Concludod on page 10)

MAN HOW THEY CHANGE

Man, how they change
the leopard, fierce and feral,
becomes a sleek and sated cat,
domesticated;
the muscles and reflexes atrophied.
Man how they change
the slave,defiant and unbowed,
becomes a majordomo
exuding propriety and pomp;
the mind obesued with protocol.


The reams of history are replete
with this recurrence
man, fervent and indignant,
is dulled by time, duped by power
and seduced by adulation and advantage;
the radical turns financier
the people's champion their overseer.

becomes a wary recluse,
paranoid and reckless;

AN OPEN LETTER FROM AN EX-MINISTER

Dear Publisher and Editor, Let me congratulate you on being courageous
and democratic enough to publish somethioin these evil and crucial~ days.
I warrant your editions of recent weeks will go down in the history of
this country as a mark of qualities which many did not aee in you*
VWhat a resa we are in. A by-election in the offing ~d no public
meetings permitted' Yet the Govt. Part candidate (EQ I d Henry, the
Premier's brother-in-law) official Labour; Lionel LaviiU and Stanley
Prevsct (unofficial) keep public meetings at midnight a4d the Police do
nothing about it! Pat (Stevens) reported the matter ,o the Governor
through his Secretary. Thinking people conclude thaj the extension of
our restrictions aimsat hamstringing the by. election canaaign, I would
add the House of Assembly Meeting too. It has become fashionable to have
a Parliament during such a crisis.
Electoral lists are not published. The enumerators did not go to
the homes, and there is no mention of a by-election. Yet Village Council
affairss take precedence:
The BANANA BUSINESS has a new mess. Boxed bananas from Northern Box-
ing Plants (I am reliably informed) are taken to Portsmouth and dumped
instead of being exported: This treatment, if true, will create further
debt, get the British Government (which is doing gll it can to revive
the Industry) disgusted, and may also give Geest Industries the excuse to
collect bananas from foreign sources,. glut the market and bring the green
boat prices down. An old pupil of mine is head of the Banana Management
Committee.
Of course, a ban on public meetings will cover-up shortcomings
in high places.
At present I am President of the ?armer Union. Mr. Norrie Vidal
(Salisbury) is Vice-President, Mr. Hobbes St. John (Westley) is Secretary,
and Mr. Austin Stephenson of Castle Brtce is Treasurer. There are four
other:mnembers of committee. This was the result of the Annnual General'
Me-s:,eting of the Farmers Union held at Wesley on 20th lray last. ***-Many'
Banana-growers don t know of all this. So please publish.
Do keep up your censored STAR. Let it shine in the darkness which
has enveloped this fair land of ours. I think you also have done more
than your share.
I was trying to get Mr.Oliver Green over the telephone to thank him
for his fine contribution during the crisis. Paa. the Wp pie~i
You may not be aware that the British Govt. has sent out a gentleman
to supervise the rehabilitation of the Banana Industry, especially in the
North. Xis office is at Wesley. He goes to Roseau every day. Can he be
happy to see the exaggerated reports given by the Agricultural Division
of progress in the rehabilitation scheme?. I am satisfied that I have
successfully persuaded the British Government to send someone to see what
is happening to their money. People plant bananas through price incen-
tive, not through the hard and dictatorial conditions laid down by the
Agricultural Department.
My daughter Helen, with. her. husband and Nigerian-born daughter, is
a. at month-end,
Yours faithfully,
W.S. STEVFANS,
"Strathil", M A R I G 0 T.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Mr. Stevens son, Pat Stevens, is contesting the North-
Eastern by-election as an Independents Mr. Elford Henry, 6aptr*d by
the Banana Association, is said to be Labour's chosen candidate; Mr.
Stanley Prevost is said to be Independent but sponsored by Labour;
Veteran election candidate Lionel Laville is trying at the Polls aaain
as an Independent; but the OFFICIAL FREEDOM CANDIDATE is Mr. DANIE.L
DUB.AN, farmer, who has the full backing of his Party. ************

Friday July 13 1973

Is there a new type


of 'flu virus ?


Many people could well
think so, from getting ailments
and miseries they never had
before. Like a virus that likes
to play around just in your
chest. Or one specializing in
intestinal agonies, or mostly
making muscles hurt, or seeing
what degree of headache it can
produce. And, of course,
there's the super all-body
influenza virus. Are they new?
Some are or may be, in the
sense of being new strains or
"cousins" of already known
kinds of viruses. Thus the
London Flu virus is" a new
strain related to the Hong
Kong flu virus. The new strain
was first isolated in England in
January 1972, hence the name
"London."
But there's some debate
among experts whether an
entirely new virus has or will
come along that our ancestors
had never experienced
somewhere along the line.
If a truly new virus did
appear, it could escape notice
for a long time if it caused only
very mild illness. There could
be little inclination to run tests
to get the identification or
licence number of a virus
involved in very brief hit-run
attacks.
DANGEROUS
A truly new virus might very
well kill thousands of people,
perhaps millions, because
humans had no immunity to it.
The situation is analogous to
primitive peoples being
decimated by viruses, like
smallpox, introduced by
visitors or hunters who did
have immunity.
But there's no question the
virus-cold and flu season is.
here. Flu may have influenced
the outcome of last Sunday's
pro football championship
games by having hit and
weakened some players,
The new London flu is one
concern. It's an A-type of
influenza like Hong Kong flu,
which was blamed for killing
27,900 Americans in 1968-69
and making hundreds of
thousands memorably sick.
It cannot yet be predicted
how widespread London flu
will be this year, says a
spokesman for the centre for
disease control in Atlanta, Ga.
Possibly, he adds, a major part
of the population already has
some immunity from prior flu


viruses. The currently available
fju vaccine should offer some
protection against the new
rain, he thinks.
S MANY MYSTERIES
The flu virus presents many
i~ysteries, including
puzzlement over exactly how
new strains appear. When a
yery different one comes along,
previous vaccines usually don't
work against it.
Some new Chinese-American
co-operation is exploring some
4f the problems. Dr. Robert
lobster of St. Jude's
Children's Research Hospital in
Memphis, Tenm., visited China
last fall, and returned with
sampless of virus that caused flu
outbreaks in 1957 and 1971.
ie now is growing those
viruses in his laboratory.
: There are two theories as to
how a new strain or mutant.
Spears, Webster explains. One
is that it is simply a change in
on existing form of the virus.
The other is that it results from
a recombination or genetic
interchange between a human
type of virus and one that
affects animals or birds.
A new strain can be lethal. A
worldwide flu epidemic in
1918 is estimated to have
killed some 21 million people,
including 500,000 Americans.
Asian flu in 1957 was wicked
and deadly. So was Hong Kong
flu some 10 years later.
FROM CHINA
Both the Asian and Hong
Kong strains are known to have.
originated in China, Webster
said in an interview, But
neither was entirely new; each
had been around in the world
before, he adds.
Understanding how the new
strains originate might increase
the chances of preparing.
vaccines, in advance, for
defense when a deadly new
strain did appear. The viruses
he obtained from China will be
useful in this study, Webster
said. He gave Chinese scientists
serums that make it possible to
type or identify strains of flu
virus more accurately than
with older methods.
Webster said the Chinese
virus laboratory he visited in
Peking "is right up to date,'.
They know their stuff. For
example, they knew of work I
had published only a few
months before."

Part, I I of RUPERT SORHAINDO'S SPEE AE T FREEDOM CONVENTION
June 3rd, 1973
N( Y INGQ UNI-~-EDD Some years ago, I suggested in an article which
appeared in the Dominica Herald, that "Dominicans are at the fateful
crossroads of their history". I stated then,, that "we are teetering on
the brink of totalitarianism and economic bankruptcy"o It would seem
thac. during the years that have elapsed since ,that article was written,
we have found ourselves "i4 the fire"; because we live in a virtual
dictatorship, directionless and "moneyless'" This may be expressed more
emphaitically:Dominica msy be described as a plantation owned by a Premier,
mis-managed by his Deputy, overseen by a bunch of greedy politicians,
and worked by thousands of black, Twentieth Century Dominican slaves.
SATION.AL BANIKRUPTCY We have been plunged into economic, political and
moral bankruptcy by the reckless abuse of.power by a small clique. of
incompetent and naive politicians; gided by a number of-heartless, para-
adtia businessmen and professionals seeking fat contracts and generous
favours that they may not qualify for; abetted by a handful of insecure.
and ambitious civil servants seeking to hold posts and big salaries that
they do not deserve; serviced by a grateful Governor; an- tolerated by a
complacent electorate
:ERTI We look abound us and see people, things, and organizations
rumbling.,. Our youth are driven into a state of inertia by the repressive
poliies of a power-hungry government Our roads do not seem A0 be cap-
able of being repaired. Our Churches seem ineffective in solving the
myriad. social anid economic. ills of the State, their potential being
'frozen by the *unwritten law of Church non-intervention in "politics".
HANA- .0An arrogant and selfish Government has managed to play
enough politics with. the most important local industry -.the banana in-
t~stry' -to .crpple it. The situation got so bad recently, 'that an
Q.Oposition member's .advice was taken, and the Board was dissolved and
replacedd by civil servants. The growers themselves were and still are
ignored And'when. a General Meeting of the Banana Growers'Association
was called recently, it was scheduled on a banana cutting day, a=d growers
were told that only delegates would be allowed to attend; and that even
they would not be permitted to vote for a new management board, since
Government had extended the Old Board's term of office, A&A we are told
that we live .. a democracy .
..AtI D1 I We have a Radio station called Radio Dominica, but which
should be more appropriately named Radio Leblanc; because in spite of the
large sums. derived from public funds spent on that institution, the rights
of acce.es~ to the air waves of Radio Dominica are not even acknowledged,
much less. respected. But there is a fresh breeze 'blowing from that Radio,
station. We hear with increasing regularity, the voices of frank, arti-
culate, young Dominicans; and occasionally, we hear a probing interview,
or an objective analysis. Let us hope that these are but signs of a more
welcome future ... an independent-Board-controlled Radioostatin (Spnkon bc-

COMVMOI1\WAJLTFH PARLIA IETARY ASSOCIATION
by viarie Davis Pierre
One often hears quite a lot about the Commonwealth Parliamentary
Association, especially with regard to Conferences being held in various
countries, but may not. kiow the real meaning and value of the Association.
As an Honorary Secretary of the Association, I thought I would take this
opportunity (since a delegation from Dominica will be attending a Con-
ference in Jamaica. shortly) to wrpi. briefly on the aims and objectives of
the Association.
The Association, which is an independent Association of the Common-
wealth, has its headquarters. in London and its management is vested in.
the Genrsal Council. On its formation in 1911, the Association adopted
a Constitution, which has been revised from time to time, and this out-
lines in.,detaail the aims, compa~itionr of the Branches, Membership,
Activities Privdleges etc.
The Association is composed of many branches, the status of which
accord more closely with the constitutional position of the countries of
the Commonwealth. The countries which are not completely alf-governin g
have been given the status of Auxiliary Branches. Dominica has theatage
of Auxiliary Branch.
Each Branch makes a contribution to the funds of the Associationl .
The amount is: determined by the General Council and is on a sliding
scale. Each Branch is encouraged to have its ovw local Branch and to
make its own Rules; for the guidance of its members, but these Rules must
conform with the Constitution. Every member of Parliament is entitled ,
to be an Ordinary Member of the local branch and any person who wa,., at
any time, a member of Parliament is eligible on application to be a~
Associate Member. Membersare also entitled to certain Parliamentary
Priveleges and to receive- Parliamentary Publications.
The general purpose of the Association is to promote knotledge and
education in the social, economic* cultural, constitutional and legisla-
tive systems within a parliamentary democratic framework. This aim is
pursued through the holding of Gonferences, Seminars and Exchange Visits
by Parliamentarians..
A Plenary Conference is held annually and this takes place in such
countries of the Commonwealth as the General'Council from time to time
determine, subject to the approval of the country hosting the Conference.
Branches are invited to send a delegate or delegates or an observer to
these Conferences.
Apart from Plenary Conferences, Regional Conferences are arranged
annually and these are held within the e.gion. The Tenth Caribbean
Regional Conference is. being held in Jaumaica, thUs month. At both the
Plenary and Regional Conferences, the host branch is responsible for all
internal expenses except passages which are met by the delegates' local
branches.
At these Regional Conferences, Parliamentarians representing varied
interests and points of view exchange opinions in a friendly, informal
and intimate atmosphere. !The purpose of the discussions is. not to concert
a common policy or to plan joint- action but rather- to ensure that all
Caribbema Governments have, a common understanding of what may be at stake
and that they appreciate the motives and purposes underlying the policies
which each is separately pursuing. The members are not bound to expound
the policies of their Ministers; they are free to express their indivi-
dual opinions, which are not binding on the: GoVerar3ient. At these
Conferences resolutions are not passed neither are decisions taken

Cricket England won the three test
-latch series against Now Zealand by
beating them 2-nil. When the final
test match resumed on Monday morning
with England batting at 526/6,. a drawn
match was predicted unless one of the
teams collapsed in their second innings.
Much to the surprise of the keen follow-
ors of the garei. iow Zealahndit was who
failed to get their heads down and were
so1ittled for the meagre total of 142
with Glen rner who failed miserably
in his first innings after getting 1000
runs in May11 was lact man out' for-81.
Final. score were NITw Zealand 276 and
142r Mark EBurgous 87" and Vic Pollard '.62,
Turner 81. For -,_"ngland, Arnold 5/27,
Show 3/34 and. Old2/41. "Enland 419,
Gooff Bcy-.tt i15, Fletcher 81 anjd
Ilin&gworth '62. For Now Zealand:
Collin-go ,/''
Pollard ~. .ed the batting average
with over C100 fc.ll.owied by Congdon in
eho 70:; and cycott and Antis in the
60s. Chris Old led the'bowling aver-
ages followed by Arnold.'
The West Indies touring toan are en-
joying a successful tour tbodate having:
won three of their six' first class
matches played, most recently, Glanorgan
who lost by an innin and 11 runs,
drawn two; matchaoe tthe test star
studded Derrick Robins X1'.
The West Indies batsmen are in form
but nohe so much as the lefthandod
Alvin Kallichran who in his last four
first class matches has got 3 centuries
and.a 60.
The West Indies start their first
tost match on July 26 at th" Oval.
Meanwhile, on Saturday they will start
another three-day, natch against Sussex
at Hov*e 'Connentaries' nay'be heard on
21.47 MHz,-.17.79 'MHz and15.07 Mhz.
.England's convincing win in the third
teot against Now Zealand muct have done
them a world of good since the first 2
matches were rather closo things-for
then. They boat Now Zealand ift that
last test by an innings and one run.
SCORES: N.Z.276 & 142; England 419. *
New Zealand's performance was disappoint
ing .after their superb cricket of the
first t'o Tests. Boycott topped Englandb
batting,, Amis coming next. For IT.Z.,Pol-
lard topped the average & Condon (who
scored most runs) cane next. -Toet match
averages), *** WEST IiDIES, with a con-
vincing vi-tory over Gla:iorgan, look set
to withstand anything England'can throw
at then wh.en the Tests start.Glanorgan

HOUSE ADJOURTS -(fron page one)
Miss Charles referred pointedly to the
by-election in Torth Eastern District-
It was halfway through the Premier's
cnotion-chakgod tirade. about the (alleged)
Police State and the (rebellious) Civil
Service that the Opposition walked out.
Many'persons desiring to attend the
Session, including Ir. 'E.C. Loblack, a
famous past-legislator, wore denied'
admittance. A strict search of all those
admitted wras:mposod by Police personnel.
A wonma E1adLUe officer pulled this Ed-
itor's reading glasses out of their c 6c,
looking for a lethal weapon presumably.
The 'ITols is. tabled to sit again on
July 19th. (Much unfinished business)

THLT FREITCH NUCLEAR TEST
Globalanxiety has boon caused by the
insistence of France on exploding a
nuclear borb in the pacific on July
14t, Bastillee Day. We think the French
are dead wrong, and admire the brave
N.Z. navy who are prepared to face ex-
termination by entering the danger zone.
