UNMANNER LY C 0 N DUCT . . . John Spector *
I was: interested in Parry Bellot's article in last week's Chronicle,
which highlighted the lack of talent in the ranks of Lebland' s Party. To
this I would add that it is doubtless due to the unattractive personalities
of the better educated members of the hierarchy of Labour, (the back-bench-
ers have no personalities to be unattractive). The crude rh6puis on the
platform, parallelled by the personal remarks in the House of Assembly dir-
ected against the Opposition (nd unchecked by the Speaker) 8"r symptomatic
of the degraded human material at the disposal of the Labour party. The
Speaker in an ~9~here for a two-fold purpose firstly to see that debate
is maintained on a level consonant with the dignity which should, by tradi-
tion, be inherent in a legislative body; secondly to keep the debate within
the bounds of the formulated rules (Standing Orders) and prevent members
straying from the point at issue and wasting the time of the louse. The
present incumbent here of that high position appears to consider that his
duty is to harass the Opposition and curtail their speeches, ii any way he
likes regardless of "order".
The mgpuis from street platforms: has the effect of alienating for ever
the person who is being 'mal-parlayed'l No person with any, pride could ever
again consort with a person who stands up and publicly makes vile, vicious
and untruthful personal statements about them purely for political advantage;
attack the other man's policies or political beliefs as much as, can be, but
the sheer bad taste of character assassination merely boomerangs against the
speaker and eventually rots any integrity that person ever h44. As. is
proven over and over again the law of slander is no protectjdp for the v4c-
-tim, and a slander case often merely compounds the wrong against the com-
plainant. Our poor Dominica has been-brought to an all time low by the
resulting lack 'of normal good manners, arrogance and ignorancP together, and
complete lack of political principle or administrative ability.
This is exemplified by the "findings" of the Boundaries Commission, which
would have a seat in-the House of Assembly for every thousand voters. With
the over-18's, when'enumerated, Dominica should have some 36,000 voters.
In a recent by-election in Britain.Liberals took the seat of Berwick-on-'
Tweed by 57 votes, out of 39.000 cast. One member to 39,OOQ Voters. The
Boundaries Commission consisted of the Speaker as Chairman, two' Government
Party members and two Opposition Party members (S.Lestrade a6d M.Sorhaindo)*.
Contrary to a. statement in Twavay the Opposition opposed th@ increase of
members from 11 to 21 (in a minority report) on the grounds of expense and
over-representation. The Boundaries Report was slapped on the table of the
House but not debated. Trinidad and Tobago's lower House ha a represent-
ation of around 80.000 per member: the radical organisation' fTapia" this
week came out with a. strong plea to increase representation t0 one member
for every 10.000 voters (doubling the size of the lower chamber). It makes
one wonder'. And, as the New Chronicle points out, with the peor human
material at the disposal of .the present ruling party, how are they going to
assemble any more candidates of better calibre than the existing 'zombies'-?

Comment by W.SS tbvns,. -
This is last we*6i.eiid's n6wss Prem-
ier LoBlanp,IMinisteo 'Etetnne, Att.Gon.
Austin and Porm.gec.Arlington Riviere
took off lpst week-end for Paris, re-
portedly tp discuss trade, obtain aid,
exchange cultural relations etc.
When Lord Moyne vidit6edthe Carib-
bean regioti for the 1938-39 Royal
Commission, he sailed from Dominica to
the two Frpnch Colonies to see why Dom-
inica (lying between'then) was so back-
ward in all respects. The Royal Commis-
sion Report set out clearly recommend-
ations to put Dominica 6n its feet ec-
onomically .and socially.
I hope that the Freich. authorities
who will treat with N1r.LeBlanc and his
delegation will question the latter
seriously pn present economic condit-
ions in Dopinica. Those authoritiesmay
not be told that up till how .(with a
banana industry over 25 years old)
Dohminica ip hopelessly without feeder
roads; that our social services are on
the decline; that nothing is done to
cope with increasing"unemplo yment,and.
that bad spiteful laws Khd measures to
make Dominicans miserable depriving
them of their freedoms, rights and
Privileges '- are too radny- and frequent,
In short, will the U.K, Government
stop making grants to the local Domin-
ica Goverrment just to discriminate
against Dominicans? It is easy to ham
a Commissioner residing here not only
to vet requests for grants, but to see
that the grants are'distributed fairly
and justly instead of being used to
placate and facilitate 'Mr.LeBlancs
unprincipled supporters and to. depress
and spite the many who cannot share
his views, Feeder roads, water services
schools, hospitals etc. are instances.
Taxpayers may have to. send a delegation
to Britain and to the United- 'Nations
on the iniquitous practices of the
LeBlanc regime.
BA7A= MEDLEY: Farmiors just don't
know what's happening in the Banana
Industry.,A gentleman like Mr. van
Geest visited Dominica last week-end
and Radio Dominica said not a word on
his visit. True, no conscientious ba-
nana farmer wants to discuss any mat-
ter affecting bananas with Mr van
Goest. ; .. .

(This article concluded on page 8)

From since the opening of the New
Roseau Market I noticed that the people
who live in River Sank and Zining Lane
have to close their windows and their
doors during their lunchtime hours:,'be-
cause if they were bo oat with their win-
dows and thcir' dbors open they would end"
up eating dust, sand and their food. -.
Madam, the reason why I.say from since'
the opening of the Market is because there.
was never a continual flow of traffic in
those streets as it is today before the
opening of'the Market.
I am inviting the public to walk along
River Bank from thedhew bridge to the
market, Hanover Striot and Laing Lane on
a dry dby, excluding Sunday, with a. clean
white dross'to see how black or dirty
your dress would got ifter your walk.,
With the flow of traffic as it's today ..
in the above-mentioned streets, I compare
vehicles passing- -in Rivor Bank or Xaing
Lane with a War 'Tink passing in the Sahara
Desert full speed. I'am convinced that .
more dust and sand Would be raised in the
above-mentioned"sti'et and lane -
Inasmuch Government is unconcerned.
about the pitching-of those streets, I am
asking the Ni ister for Gommunicatidis &
Works, What are your Ministryts. plans at -
hand or in future for the betterment of
those streets? -
If nothing can 5~. said, I would like
to advise the Ministbr to rename the
streets referred .to as followst-
-....- LVIi. ERAuCIS;, Rier" St.
_' __ Roseau
I see that the-G.PU. -is building a. new
place at Palm Grove. I. hope that the .
bridge near by will hot break up visitors'
cars. It"is the worst bridge in Dominica.-
I ever sawl Governmoht can fix other
bridges but-that one "is always badly
repaired. It is a trap .

Mr & Mrs. Adolph left Dominioa over -30
years,-ago and have resiAed since in- New
York City. Mr Adolph wias in earlier 'years
organist of the Portsmouth GCatholic Church,
and his wife, Eldica, was a ch6ir member,
so they were both Portimouithians. The
wife is an immediate relative of retired
Sister Elsie Dubique, ex-Nurse of the
Princess Margaret Hospital. By the ex-
oellg.nt programme s6i3 from New York, we
observe that the ceremony was a concele-
,brated'-masassist.ed- by five Priests,.
The altar-boys. were the coupler's grand-
children, offspring of their only son and
only daughter; the Ushers iwere. likewise.

Stella Maris has been removed from the
Caribbean route this yedr and" will be
cruising instead- among the Greek islands
in the Mediterranean. The Victoria of
the Incres Lines which called on three
occasions in December 1972'will no longer
be calling here. ** The Phantom, a large "
yacht which carries.about 100 passengers,
will be making its usual fortnightly calls
here. This yacht is unscheduled and has
no local shipping agent. The three boats
of the-.Epirotiki.line which made 6 oalls
last season have increased their number
of oalls to ten this season.
The ports in the Caribbean that mostly
attract cruise ships are Nassau, Bermuda-,
St,.Thommsr St.Mnaarton-,. San Juan, Guadehup,
Martinique .Antigua, Barbados, Grenada,
Curacao Aruba, Bonaire and La Guira.
These ports%'ffer the amne basic attract-

Like other parts of the world our
Wol. islands are facing problems of
lack of food items, petrol, pro-gas
I keep thinking that the leaders of
the islands should be more concerned
over the lack of- fod items and the
high cost of impor ed food and make
plans for growing "f more provisions
and raising'of mor. livestock, I do
not mean just to appeal to people but
to do like Barbadoo Aid at the start
of the last.war when estate owners had
to plant,.a certain .percentage of their
acreage (by law) in yams. and potatoes
and keep -a certain 'aount of livestock
again according to- the acreage of the
estate. Eveh the smll landowners were
asked to keep a shee6 or goat. I know
there was a law passed to make the es-
tate owners carry Oput the order and" .
they were -Tld by the Agriculture Dept'
when to-plan and reap. It was done by
a. plan so that all' tjie yams. etc. were'
not reaped at the saie time I. a^-so
remember hearing -tha. no one could sell
a young calf tob butchered tor voal
and a cow had to'be 4 certain ago before
it was butchered. ICY, Castries.

The Exequ#4ve Committee 'of the Dominica Freedom Party met yesterday and among
matters discussed was the radio announcement that Government had signed an agree-
ment with 4 Company incorporated locally for a twenty million dollar development
of Dominicq's tourist industry,
The Exequtive Conmittee were informed by the members of the House of Assembly
who attended the meeting that except for the radio announcement they had received
no intimation of this a.reemeiet nor had they received copies of the said agreement.
It was emphasised that since Government would have to guarantee the repayment of
any money .aised for the purpose the consent of the House of Assembly would be
required i the agreement was to have legal effect,
The Exequtive Committee expressed satisfaction 'that Governiment had once again
followed the lead of the Freedom Party in that Government had at last abandoned
its position against foreign investment, and had seen that to develop, Dominica it
would, be necessary to rely on more. than the resources the island-has-to "offer.
