There is a crisis no the affairs of men but in
Dominica the crisis is worse compounded by
the abysmal ignorance of the Leblanc Govero.

and driving essenna!. commodities off the mar-

TRAVAIL AND 'TWAVAY' ... JOHNSPECTOR
Dominica is in travail, :.and the younger obstetrician' standing by
for the ultimate delivery is the Movement for a New Domifica. The sen-
ior is, of course, the Freedom Party: and make no mistake" that Party
still has a strong hold on the loyalty of a big section oi the community,
spread far and wide. But today I am not discussing the forceps of Free-
dom (kept surgically clean) but the latest bulletin tTWAVAY' of the MND.
This 'organ' as they call it is now 15 cents, like the NEW CHROiAICLE.
And the November issue is worth every cent of it. Although Radio D/ea
featured the article on Christianity which, although containing any re-
statements, is thoughtful and non-vituperative and ends o, a note of ,
reason ..."MND states her willingness to dialogue with the local churches"
...the really important material in this number is the front page article ..
entitled "ARMOUR WANTS 'DICTATOR' AND VIOLENCE".
By quoting from platform speeches at a recent Labour Partye--tnagy-,-
the article, which takes up the whole of p.2, cites chapter ad verse of
the ex-Deputy Premier and present Deputy Premier's horrible and warning
exhortations to the listening public, such as (Armour): "I/believe, to
be in politics 'in a developing country now, you need to/be a small
Dictator... And if we- are going to rule we will have to rule with an
iron hand ... I an no longer a Minister but I am sure that what I am
saying all the Ministers agree with me but they probably cannot move
forward as fast as they want to move forward because you, the public,
do not understand and until you understand and back them up when
Savarin comes in the street with 200 fellas you have to put 400 fellas
and Adrive them off the damn str e ets. ... Labour Party Oipporters are
not militant enough'..You need to support stronger political action on
behalf of the Labour Party and we will come to you and tell you h we
mean political action..."
TWAVAY eonnments: 'The message is clear. Hon R.O.P. Armour in clear,
frank, simple,straightforward and unambiguous language istalling on the
Labour Party Government to establish a dictatorship in Dom nica -- a
fascist government.' And 1, John Spector entirely agree iw"th that comment.
TWAVAY then quotes Mr. Patrick John (while acting PreiSer during Mr.
LeBlanc's visit to France), who referred to non-supporter9 of the Govern-
ment in these words: "Such people who damage the image of Dominica they
have no use and such people should be burnt like in the 91d days when
they burnt the witches, because they are living witches when they try to
condemn our Country..." And the MND organ asks: 'Who, therefore, is
preaching, advocating and planning VIOLENCE in this county? Is it a
Third Force? Is it not Ronald Armour and Patrick John? ,Who is calling
for the destruction of all opposition? Who therefore is planning a ONE-
PARTY STATE?' ... Writing ironically, the commentator ePpects the Hon. ..-
Premier to move another resolution similar to the one P.R.John spent :over
an hour on (Thurs.July 19, 1973) quoting outdated textbooks on communistig
violence -- but this time condemning John and Armour for inciting their
supporters to resort to violence.
Finally 'TWAWAY' presses the Freedom Party to move a resolution at
the next sitting of the House (Dec.18th, to my knowledge), condemning
the Dominica Labour Party politicians, R.Armour and P.John, for planning
to unleash bloody violence --- burning & street-fighting -- in Dominica.
I have seen a draft resolution by Freedom deploring this fantastic
use of language by leading members of the Government, but whether the
Speaker (who has already rejected Freedom members' resolutions out of
hand, such as the one on Customs Officers), will ever let this one reach
the Order Paper, is another question. So while I appreciate MND's strong
.stand on the alarming proclivites of Government Ministers, I hope they
will not go around shouting "Zor tout s6 meme'". It would be most unfair.

READ RES V I E.T.: DISGUSTED MISAT ISTAITENNTS
Ma.^L Reading the Editorial of the Wednesday December 5th edition of the
Educator-against the background of the Radio Domihic4 I.20 p.m. newscast of the'
same day,s leaves one completely disgusted with the b.aelessness, the dishonesty,
the maliciousness of the ruling Labour Party.,
When a commentator signing "E.H.Francis" states' on the question of Salaries
Revision that "It is noteworthy that it was the Government who initiated discus-
sion on the subject or rather attempted to do so", i he really serious? Doesn't
the writer know: That as early as May 1973 the C.S.A, made a request for a
'Revision of Salaries in 1973' ?
- That after first turning down the C.S.A.'s request because of the 'economic
situation', Government, as a result of further representation from the-C.S.A.,
appointed a two-man committee consisting of the Chie f establishment Officer and
the Financial Secretary to"go into the matter? ...That the said committee failed
to meet with the CSA following a request from the CSA for..a meeting on 7th June
1973? What does Mr. Francis' mean therefore by "it is noteworthy that it was Gov-
ernment who initiated discussions"? I wish to refer the writer and those who
think like him to the Civil Service Association Viewpoint of Friday 16th ITovem-
ber 1973 for confirmation of My information.
Immediately on the heels of this untruth, the writer continues: "Well it is
now public knowledge that almost six months ago the Government requbsted propo.-
sals from the CSA seeking to have their views and recommendations on the qAestion
of Salaries Revision. To this dates. as information from Government 0eVeals, the-
CSA has failed to comply" with that request."
Even Mr. Francisrs mathematics cannot make Octpobr'2nd to December 5'hh six
months it looks more like two months and 3 days to 'e. It was on October'2nd,
1973, the very day that the Civil Service Act was rushed through the Hduse, that
the Chief Establishment'Officer invited the C.S.A. to submit proposals for a Sal-
aries Revision. October 2nd and not six months ago .
Then too Mr. Francis must know that on November 1th the CGS*A. requested a
Cost of Living Allowance for 1973 and asked that negotiations be entered into
with a view to "its early implementation in 1974", Tii C.S.A. further offered to
bargain away its claims for back pay in 1973 in favob r'f a Cost of Living Allow-
ance of $50.00 a moth for all public officers., Further, the 1..20 newscast over
590 on Weds. December 5th stated that the C.SA.' had-',1 Monday December 3rd-sub-
'mitted its proposals for a-Salaries RevieW. Sd why al' the misinformation from
the Editor of the Educator? All of this of course:iis just a build-up for the
real 'comments' which Mr.' Francis wishes to make, and 'a few paragraphs later
after criticising .the CSA for requesting a Cost' of LiiVng Allowance for 1973,he
writes; '"Very -reluctantly" therefore, I am forced to' come to the conclusion that
the motive is quite obviously POLITICS". According to' the CSA Press Statement of
Saturday 1st December, the 'Political Bogey' allover againI
Well I have looked at the GSA proposals. H6w 6 Government or any of its
henchmen can say that in asking for a Cost of Living A4lowance for 1973 the CSA'
is playing politics beats me. Since the CSA made its application in May of' 1973,
new salaries would have"to be retroactive from Janua y'1973. It means that'ac-'
cording to the CSA proposals top Civil Service posts Eill' b, entitled to $3,000.00
back pay for 1973. and those'at the very bottom $1,532p90 that is, in back pay
al6ne. The C.S.A. is shying'that instead of giving mom $3,000 public 'officers
$3,000 back pay and others $1,320, give everybody $600,00 Cost of Living -Allow-
ance for 1973 and let's pay new salaries from Januay" 1974o.
The Educator & Co'. call this playing politics. Tp~my mind the C.S.A. is try-
ing to help its membeis- aid to help Government at 'tie' same time. But perhaps
those in 'Top Management' want their $3,000.00 after all', and neither Mr.Francis
nor the Government Iinisters are clever enough to se 'a -break when they get one.

VIOLENT CONFRONTATION F 0 0 T BALL
The Popham Football Tournament came
to a premature end with.the departure
of the St.Vincent team from Dominica
back to their homeland without' going-
on to play Grenada in the final match
in Grenada especially as the champion-
ship was already decided in their fav-
our after their love-all draw in Domin-
ica which ended in catastrophe when
they should have been jubilant. This
came about because as football enthusi-
asts here claimed, rugged play against
our team on their aW'y -matches -6t1lly
climaxed with Dominicans taking things.
into their own hands. -
Ehns here were determined to have
some form of revenge, thinking our team
played- the Vineies too easy in last
Friday's match| so when the"game ended
without Dominica scoring one vital goa3
all hell broke loose.
One could never have thought thht
.Dominicans were so bloodthirsty -cheer-
ing our boys on numerous occasions for
dirty play. The Eastern section of the.
crowd would run onto the -field praising
the offending' players The Stc.:Lhcian
referee (a lone man away. from home with-
out backers) could not do"his job with-
out fear of personal injury to himself,
so failed to put off the field'the
offending players. But as soon as the
.match came to an earlier'-than -antici-
pated end due to stoppages beyond the
referee, the largg Eastern section of
the crowd came in one surging mass
directed at the Vincentians, who were
collecting their gear at-the stands on
the Western side of the playing area
seconds. later to my surprise (standing
on the North-western side' of the field
just in front of the basketball' court)
IX saw the red of the Vincies, the grey
of the police officers shirts and up-
raised chairs to protect heads,directed
in one mad rush to the main exit at the
Windsor Bark, closely followed by a
determined Dominican crowd. Stones and
bottles were thrown at the'Vincentians
and there was talk that some policemen
got struck.
One wonders what will happen to the
Popham Tournament after only its first
year of. a home and away match for every
team, which everyone looked forward to.
It nowi seems that open war has been
declared.
