The Jaycees have launched a fund for the vic-
tims of the K'eontedy Avenue Fire after carrying
tout a rsrvey of the 31 people who -lo posseSaio7'
when the four buildings were destroyed in July.
Los$ is estimated by Police at $45,ooo e:c
clusive cf the buildings, The Jaycecs hope a
raise a target figure of $20,0oo and hsvi
opened,, a Fire Vactums Fund at all banks as
placed collection tns in stores. All good ciut

The People's Enemy

'The Labour Party have for quire some
time been parading under the convenient la-
bels of "socialism", "te poor man's parry"-
" democracy? etc.
Their recent irresponsible actions,
however, have biatant'y refuted :he a.ove.
We can no longer cast a bhlnd eye and dea
ear to this government's wrorgful doin.s,, fo
after all it affects every one of us.
There has been and still is a break-
down of Democracy 'if this form of govern-
ment ever existed in this State) and we are
faced w i t r Papadocracy Dictatorship
whether we like II or not.
Are we going to stand by and allow the
feeble few 'the government, to implement
their sesivry motivated ideology in this
state? -'* ', e. 5P

Another storm is brewing In me Caribbean is-
land of Domminca. The decistcn cy the Civil
Service Associaton, the bargain ng body for
Civil Servants here, to walk our again from their
tobs if need be, to dramause ius displeasure over
the sacking of two members of its executive, is
further proof that there was more behind the
gene strike ia June w hic h crippled the
Dominican ecuoomv and ei to a deciara:iao of
a state cf emeriencG\
Was ':t Must a row v-rr the transfer of a popular



program asmsstan. from a radj station? or was it
frastratton brought on by the iotahitanan d fiance
and arrogance by a Government which has en-
trenched itself solidly for the past thirteen years?
Caribbean politicians should do well to ponder the
answer for the Caribbean miru-states have become
ripe for violent change overs. It would be naive
for us to say that there is still the democratic pro
ces of the ballot box, for we know too well asd
from recent experience that Caribbean govern-
meats have become adept at "fixing the vote",

The Editor has passed to me a few documents or papers "for your
comments". The first is a letter from Harvard U.S.A., the signatory
being a conservationist of extreme distinction. There is no indication
that he would like his words suppressed or kept secret, and in-view of
the hazardous position of conservation in this land, and of the career
of our foremost conservationist here, I venture to ask the STAR to re-
produce it:-
"I follow events in Dominica with sadness, particularly those in-
volving Christopher Maximea. He was such an excellent ambassador for
Dominica when he attended the Second World Conference on National Parks
in the .United States last September. He did an outstanding .job.
-it was hoped that lie would also be abif to attend and participate in
the Eighth Annual Seminar on the Administration of national Parks and
Equivalent Reserves which began a few days ago in Seattle, Washington.He
was invited to participate along with the'representatives of 21 other
nations. Funds had been arranged for the six-week study tour of Canadian,
American and Mexican National Parks and obviously he could not accept
the invitation under the present situation. He would have gained a great
deal from the experience and he would have contributed a great deal to all
the participants."
The writer, who is a constant subscriber to the STAR, continues:
"I am no longer with the Conservation Foundation but have recently
started my own-corporation called Environmental Concern International.
There is so much work to be done but obviously it can only occur where
governments are hospitable to the concepts involved. I would like to,
think that Domltica will turn a corner in its internal troubles and be
able to focus some effort on the preservation of its resources. At the
moment we all seem td bd faced with the destructive effects of the polit-
ical process." "William H. Ed y" Jr.
Now in noting the, above I am not exonerating the Freedom Party-from
criticism. The great Civil Rights lawyer Roger Baldwin (also of the USA)
noted the omission in Freedom propaganda of a stand in favour Of the found-
ation of a great national park in this "virgin island" ; an immense
national park of world-wide celebrity. But I -qote the letter above,with
the publisher and editor's permission, to show that although (as a female
civil servant -unconsciously quoting Lenin-said 'no man is indispensable'
no g od3s.m -anr.-e cast on the rubbish-heap of politics with his wife and
child perhaps to starve while we in Dominica are cut off from the
greatest opportunity of our lives.
Now I turn briefly to Vol 1 No.0 of the MIND publication "Travail" or
TWAVAY. It contains an article CIVIL SERVANTS STAND STRONG reporting how
500 divil servants..expressed total condemnation of the action of Dominica
Government in retiring Messrs. F.O.Symes and Maximea. And on the subject
of Symes I shall haveamething to say next week' The bulletin said:' "By
resolution the Meeting"(last Sun. at Goodwill Parish Hall)"expressed their
total condemnation of the action of the Government of Dominica in retiring
Messrs. F.0. Symes and C.C.Maximea 'in the public interest'." By resol-
ution the Meeting agreed to bring the issue and their decision to stand
by the two executive members to all sections of the Dominica civil Service.
It is good to know that MND supports the public workers of this State in
their just struggle "against the reprosive actions of the Leblanc Govt. "
The pamphlet exposes the handouts Leblanc has made to himself and 'ex-
jokers', Defence Force etc... money which could "transform the miserable
life of the mass of the Dominican people." ..
It's a very interesting paper the only things I find peculiar are
the fake names of young supporters (maladroitly translated into Africanese-.
and .the description of Mrs. Allfrey ('Phy-lis Al-frey) as "a socialist at
the time (when the Premier developed politically). As far as I am aware,
Mis. Allfrey is today exactly the same sort of socialist she was when she
founded the then Dominica Labour Party, and she has joined the Popular
Front of the Freedom Party because it contains every point of view.

Fiction MA TITINE ...Cynthia Watt
Rain, rain and rain] Whenever water drip-
pe fromi above for too long, I-a Titine
got low-spirited. She cheeoupsed and
humnnphod. Gargeemerging front the bed-
room, asked: "Titino, what's wrongg"
"Dat rain nunhi I want-' to go an see
Rose-0 and de blirldhi rain koepin me
back." But just then the sun shone
'"Well, I goin. Reuben have do car takin
touris from de airport, dat's why I mus'
walk. Soe youl" She stepped off smartly.
"ocll, Titine,"noso-O greeted her.
"I was just deciding to comet over to see
you... Lat night I celebrated my lib-
erty in old Freedom Street, and what
about you?"
"Oh I was dere but do crowd was so
beog I nevah saw you, Hergency feenish,
now you can move free!"I
"I despised the stupid law," said
Roso-O."I never stayed home at night.
I did as I pleased. I was prepared to
go to prison."
Ma Titine accepted a glass of Coo
d'Or and; a cup cake. She said "Dere was
plenty ypung people lissonin, and Say-
say an' 4ndrew ax to speak, an de crowd
cheer dom. ."
"'e need all kinds," said Rose-O re-
flectively. "And what about gas? And
what about wator?."
"Dat ;as situashion is one hell of a
ting... only one pussoh making all de
money. Soon it cost as much to drink
watah as to drink gas.. .an doeo light
bill BpndidJ EveryVihere is one talkJ
As for watah) Imagine, de people at Ro-
get has to pay de same watah rate as
dose in Tongi An is de oie pipe ting
Nistah Rock bill so lonj: ago dat dey
usinJ Dey not even cleaning de place.
Is a-fren I know dat clean it out de
oddor day,an is dat fair?"
"Have you brought it to the notice
of Government?" asked Rose-0 in her
mocking voice like a whip of stinging
Bring it to doir notice? Eh-oh,wat
dey care? Go to Peter, he son you to
Paul; Paul will son you to IIchael an
Michael will son you bacd; to Peter, an
de place will still stay so, and de
people will cry blood but pay de watah
Rose-O asked: "You haven't heard any-
thing about a petition? I think Loblack'
has one circulating..."
"I sign my name to dat long time,"
said.Ma Titine. She sighed.
"You can always pray," said Rose-0
"I agree wid Zaboca, not going to
Church to pray for no Preemiah an Guv-
ernah," declared Titine stoutly,'

West Indian literature, social con-
flicts and history were topics discussed
during a meeting between visiting W.I.
writer Jan Carew and young Dominicans
on Tuesday" evening at the U.W.I, Extra
Mural Centre. After reading extracts
from his' own work Carew embarked on a
meandering but at'times extremely Ani-
mated "rap session" with the group,cov-
ering many viewpoints on 'the id .Indi
Alfred Leovy, .arloworth Carter and
Lenno:x Honychurclh reading their short
stories and poems was another highlight
of the evening. .
The Caribbean peoples should ask then-
selves some questions: what has happened
to the leaders they voted in? Whberceis
the integrity and honesty which goes with
good politics? They should have those
answers very soon, because it would ap-
pear from the present trend that soon
they may not even be able to ask those
SThe Civil Sertioe Association here has
stated that it will exhaust all avenues'
before instituting strike action. The
Trade Unions ahd the Employers Union have
place themselves squarely behind the CSA.
Will Government want to negotiate an
issue that it maintains is done and fin-
ished? It SHOULD, at least to salvage
what's worth salvaging here. The Radio
Dominica isdue has done morb to create
deep division between Dominicahs than
any other issue.
Government should well make efforts
to become friends with the Press, It
would not be unfair to saythat 'officials
in the State' haVo alienated themselves
from the Press, both local and regional.
A case in point was when the former Dop.
Premier ir. Ronald Armour haughtily told
a foreign correspondent who was seeking
clarification on a Government position,
"I have nothin~j to discuss with you," -
and slammed down his telephone.
Thc--Caribbean peoples must ask them-
selves: whatt conditions, what situations
have brought about the almost complete
reversal of the People's Mandate?"

The Management of the Dominica Herald
wish to apologize to its readers for
technical difficulties which prevented
publication during the past few weeks,
and to say that the HERALD will be out
again next week.

It seems to be a great sport now in
this parish for peole..-- some say young
men to go' to-others' property and.
steal their animals. 'At one time we
heard of fowl-thievbs, but now people are
looking for bigger prey. and the favour-
ite is now goats. Some pigs have dis-
appeared too. Some time ago a gentleman
in St.Joseph actually ran after two
young men who were carrying away one of-
his pigs. They dropped it qnly after one
