He had his little hammock
He grew melons in his plot
He went to see his family

And burnt down all his tools.

In every land, when t h e Premier
makes a speech at a Party A.G.M., the
text is broadcast and published immedi-
ately, so that the people can know his
views and intentions. Heath does it.
Wilson did it. Dr. Williams does it. Mi.
chad Manley does it par excellence; and

But after Wesley's AGM total sil-
ence engulfed Premier Leblano's
speech, which got a 'standing ov-

gave no quotes from it, though
Party speakers described the poss-
ible future CSA strike action as
being for "transparent political
motives" and illegal, claiming
that the 'retired men were fair-
ly treated. Yet on the front page
of the Govt. organ there is a clue.
Leblano's address, called 'electri-
fying' contained a tirade on
"treachery in the ranks of theParty".

Ma Titine was bustling ag usual about".ei kitchen in a cheery and
happy mood. Eurilla had returned trom BarbVOos with little Sonny and her
recently-we& husband Steve.
The newly-weds were all agog with the latest Dominican news.
"You mean nothing isu settled yet?" Steve enquired in his Southern
American voice.
"De way tings going, I doan see when anything going to settle," replied
Ma Titine from the kitchen.
"Anyway," Garge joined in, "dat was a real good show on Friday night.
Titine, I sorry you wooden go beco of dat bad cold, but Steve," he. chuck-
led, "dat was one good show boy You should see how de Guvnor enter sitting

"I was surely glad we came ov4r in time to attend the show and see
lovely Lorna and all of them," Eurilla- said. "Ma, the Arawak was packed to
the full...all tickets were sold out. We were lucky to get any at all.
Even STAR printers, couldn't get in"
Ma Titine brought in the scrambled eggs and coffee,
"Come on allyou, brekfusaa ready."
Garge was about to take a helping, when he suddenly laughed aloud.
"Wat de joke?" demanded Titine.
"Dat oonvenshun I"
"En henh, wat about it?"
aarge sniffed an wiped his eyes, .
"Titine, you mean to tell me you doan lessen to de radio news?".
"Well," Titine replied, "I does heah so much nonsense, it~ mikin ny

"An de Freedom one de have' tousansla"Ma Titine replied.
The coming by-election was discussed, and Garge became very heated in
Mis language when he spoke of the unfairness such as putt ng a little vil-
lage Council election just before, to confuse the people. And worse than
that, trouble over the Voters' Lists !
"all dey -doin is making monkeys out of people !" he declared.
Steve said he hoped that Dominicans would not always be led like sheep
and show the outside world that they also had the guts to ,'fight injustice.
Later that evening, Ma Titine's happiness was ahatter2ed, for Garge
announced that it was time he returned to St Thomas. He had more than over-
stayed his. leave, he: said; Steve s presence (as the boas's son) reminded
him that the employer had been considerate when he had written to explain
the reason of his long absence, but return to wori was now overdue.
Ma Titine wept.
"Jus when I so heppy," she sobbed, "all my family arong me an now you

Instead of portraying the attractive sophistication of the intelligentsia..of
Dominicans "first families"r who carry the mantle of Frhehc culture bequeathed to
their ancestors before English rule, Waugh chooses to.denigrate the denizens with
incidents of ambivalent sexuality and subconscious paternalism which has resulted
in a resentment of all 'lins threatening their economic life. Like Switzerlandi ,
in its scenery only, it'has attracted an unusual number of eccentrics and indivi-
duals. and Waugh explains why, in part. .. .
Seduced by an aunt imitating Etonian flagellations', the hero finds the path'
of least resistance in spite of a series of love affairs roaiilting in loneliness,
rather attractive, The story is admirably adapted to a movio "Island in the' Rain"
to match his "Island.in thie Sun" describing Farley hill in Barbados, and I expect.
little of his conversational script need be changed.'

by Leo Narodny .(from p.7)
Mr. N'arodny gives a spirited account of
personal experiences in Dominica-related
to this novel- which we'wish We had
room to reproduce here, and adds He
includes his friends without flavoring
their-biographies with the bitter bits
of reality that Somerset Maugham couldn't
omit in his 'stories: of the Far Eastqne-
of which Was surely the story'of his
host.tIolley Knapp in Dominica." He 'ges
on i Toreaders who have never lived
in .Dominica, the characters' seem unreal,(
but the compensation of traditional Eng-
lish-life and'patterns, of living.will
make it real enough for a good ZV ser*
ial. It is a good sequel'to the' fiction-
al "Duet in-Discord'. by Elma Napier and
'the ,"Run 1Iasked" of Robb White. It is
time for a'"Gone with the. Wina" about
Dominica today,' Waugh's hero' gies
a party in London which he explains
'..Dominica needs publicity.
IEvery place needs publicity; every-
thing'needs .publicity. Surely you as an
author a~ .ee' that.'

During those years of service (and

this officer performed his duties.

classed as management, as also is the
Premier. The' 1Ministers of this Govern-
ment doubtless consider themselves as
Management. However it is not the bMsi-
ness of Management (whether "Ministers,
Permanent Secretaries or the P.S,C.)
to decide whether Department Eeads are
workers or management -- are.they to be
judge, jury, prosecutors, lower 6ib:
magistrates .and executioners? The mere
fact of"the enforced "retirement" of
these two officers (officers: of both"
the Service and the Union) indicates
that they are not management'by any form
of logic.;. and'-%th Government, Public
Service CommiJsion and Minister of Home
Affairs have"dug a deep pit of illogical
persecution for themselves. If any two
persons needed the full and solid sup-
port of a' trade: union it is:'1essrs

At the corners of some of our streets
in town, and maybe in the country as well,
there are some idlers watching purposely
when our young women are walking up or
down the streets. Some of them make
the girls'feel embarrassed'by directing
unpleasant remains. at them, causing them'
to feel that they are not free to'appear,
talk, laugh and walk, on our streets.
Some girls iay enjoy a funny joke and
laugh it our, but' cannot feel happy when
their character is impeached. Perhaps
our various unions and associations can
lecture our inhabitants from time to
time, as how to conduct themselves on the
streets, in any function or anywhere else.
Our police can only act when complaints
are brought in H.L.

That formidable Unionist Charles
Savarin is never at a loss when
the Civil Service Association gets
letters from Home Affairs, the
latest of which "informs" that
"there is no legal or constitution-
al provision which would allow him*
effectively to interfere with de-
,isions of the -Public Service Com-
mission by referring such decision
to a Board as you have requested,
and therefore he"(*the Minister)
cannot lawfully comply with any
such request." John Spector has
dealt with the second part of this,
letter which underlines that!'Messrs
Symes and Maximea not being workers'
within the meaning of the Trades
Disputes Ordinance..." any strike
calculated to ensure their rein-
statement will be an illegal strike.
Savarin hits back: "Your letters
of. the 22nd and 28th August 1973
reveal a complete misunderstanding
both of the Association's case and
the role of your Ministry" (Home
Affairs) "under the Trades Disputes
Act, After relating events follow-
ing the CSA decision to return to
work on June 22, and the subse-
quent request to refer the dispute
to a Board of Inquiry or Arbitration,
Savarin goes on: "Not only has the
Ministry failed to take any action
to refer the matters in dispute to
a Board... but the Ministry has
participated in the general victim-
ization of public officers and has
condoned the action of the Adminis-
tration in retiring Symes and Maxi-
mea. Obviously neither your Ministry
nor Government can have their act-
ions examined by an impartial Board,
and your threats are simply an
attempt at frightening those public
officers who are determined to stand
by the C.S.A. to see to it that
justice is. done." Savarin described.
Govt.'s reference to constitutional
provisions as "cynical,.as the very
composition of the Public Service
Commission is questionable because
of the obvious one-sided party pol-
itical bias .of the five members ap-
pointed on the advice of the Premien'
After denying that the Association
wished Home Affairs or anyone else
to interfere with the Commission's
decisions, 'but pointing out the wid-
er fields of conciliation and arbitral
procedures, the Gen.Sec.CSA turns to

C.S.A. NEWS ('from column one)
the Ministry's interpretation of the
word 'worker', pointing out also that
the CSA is the only body in Dominica
which can legally claim the right to
represent public officers other than
Police Officers on all matters...
"the right to belong to a Union is,
as you know, constitutionally en-
trenched." Then there is a final
tough paragraph. We think CSA is
holding its own all right. Ed.
PITAL INCIDENT. This relates to an
incident at Stronach Maternity Ward
on July 21, and CSA feels that the
basis for such a request is not prop-
erly understood by the Ministry (of
Education & Health). Upon receiving
a letter (Aug.9) from the CSA.,
the Minister replied at once stating
that "long before you got wind of the
incident...prompt and appropriate
action was taken on this matter by
my Ministry." The Incident concerned
the appearance of a man with a gun
in thp ward, and Was considered by
CSA serious enough to warrant inves-
tigation. Queries as to the nature
of the action taken by the Ministry
of Health were stone-walled. Hence
this affair will be a major topic
at the C.S.A. meeting announced on
page 10 of this newspaper,
