More than one hundred year have

The important thing at the moment is
to keep Arab strategy in perspective.
The real motivation of the oil-producing
nations of the Persian Gulf is less rooted
in a holy war to wipe out the State of
Israel than in an effort to maximize profits.


A counter-boycott, according to most
experts, might prove mildly annoying to
some Arab states, but would lack the
economic punch to be really effective.
That, .therefore, offers no soluton---al-

Clearly, Yamani and other Arab pol-

Western World, even if dnven into a
serious depression, would not risk mili-

one can tell where that would end. Be-
sides, Yamani has said, the Saudis would
immediately blow up their oil fields if
there were to be military retaliation.
What, then, is the answer? In the
longer-run, of course, the world must
make itself independent of Arab oil by
producing adequate energy from other
sources. But that may take up to 10
years, and is not the solution to the im-
mediate problem.

KAPELWA MLUSOIlDA p is a briliant
Zambian writer famod'for his comic-ser-
ious satirical articles. Zambia had a
general election the other day., and al-
though a one-party asate, four Cabinet
Ministers lost thei posts and seats. -*

The broadcasters 'pre not to blame.
The blame falls fairly zad squarely on
the Premier a'd his immediatee officers
who advise on selec#.on of staff. Chil-
dren acquire speech habits early' in l 1
.*.for heaven's sake, parents, teachers,
social workers and people of calibre and
good taste -- rise up and save our chil-
dren from the barbarous and atrocious
stuff served up to them by Radio 590. A
speech therapist foz the benefit of
teachers, youth and the Radio would be
an investment.' I hopp that this appeal
for cultured and sta4.dard speech over
Radio Dominica will receive deserved
support fr-om all concerned. W.S.S..
NEXT WEEK: The Banana Industry.
GOVERPENT EXACTS APYALTY (from p.1)
The CSA. also said'that advance warn-
ing should have been given to allow for
discussion and consLtation with the gen-
eral membership. WTo' are against the
seeking out of pockets of Public officer
and attempting to ppos.ure them, and poss-
ibly create division in the Association's
membership." (All Piic Officers under-
Cabinet Secretary Soignoret had to sub-
scribe to the new rp ulation. The Cab-Sec
said he "was onl- i3lementing routine
regulations and so, hd no reason to ad-
vise the 'd )bf hias actions. )

G A S CRISIS -' from p.1l. The CSA
expressed apprbhons`@ n over the increas-
ing danger to which.-he community is be-
in exposed by the iharding of gasoline
in private homos, and the loss in man-
hours'resulting fro- queuing at. gas sta-
tions, voting that nothing short of cat-
astropho would befa4 the Banana Industry
and the life of th6 Qommunity if Govt.did
not act decisively, while urging citizens
to do more walking nd loss driving.Among
CSA suggestions are; an agreed quota to
be released on a weo61y basis to all Gas
Stations", whole would then sell to motor-
ists registered with; them at specified
