Blackness pnd cries in the silence (noi
telephones) enveloped Grenada on Mon-
day when corpmunication and electricity
workers jomed citizens in "Gairy. must go"
protests. Rupert Bishop, businessman fa-
rher of New Jewels Maurice Bishop LL.B,
was shot dead& 1y injured, o n Tuesday
during a mass denionstration.
Police aides (Gairy's Goons) are said
*, have marched past aot- Govt. protesters
around T.U.'s Otway House, then turned'
back and attacked them. Regular Police,
we are told, protected children near the
building. Mrs. Sybil La Grenade, House-
wives leader, wif of a n ex-Perm. Sec.,
suffered bad iqjufies when she leapt from
a second floor of the invaded house then
hid in a sewer; helped by friends, she fled
to Barbados. Alister Hughes is said to have
been hit aunl dragged across the street du-
ring the attack. Dame Hilda Bynoe return-
ed to her husband's birthplace Trinidad,
says she is still Governor of Grenada; but
Gairy has sworn in an acting Governor.

They call Parliament in Wettminster the M.P.s club; I suppose alL
parliaments tend to become debating societies where members take time
off for refreshments, gad sniping verbally is the order of the day. BUt
I have become increasingly bored with the Dominica House of Assembly,
more so sipce it insulated itself claustrophobically from the popular
audience tprpugh apprehension (sinoe the 16th of December 1971). The
only lively events in this debate on the budget were the Premier telling
off the Sppaker for (and I support this) contravening Speakership rules;
and Pat Stevens, as a result, walking out of the House. Pat was entirely
within his rights. There is no law against raising your voice in the
heat of emptioa and debate, as long as you are not insulting; and there
is absolutely -ho regulation limiting the nature of budget ieferences,nor
is there p limitation on the length of member's speeches. One cannot
.say "!I intend to clear Tj th debate" in a couple of days..." as if it
were a petrol station with rationed petrol. What do the members and
officials get paid for anyway? To air and settle the just grievances
and demands of the people, and the promises they have made regardless
of the time taken. Pat Stevens made some good points before he got
mown down, anyhow and when he left he cleared away half the House with
him, those remaining being mainly Labour supporters. It was really far-
cical, and if the Speaker does not like his role he should consider re-
Hon.Eugenia Charles apoke of her disappointment in the 20-page speech
on the budget, which reminded her of our aimless local insect, the La-
belle..."nQ direction, no planned movement, no desire for progress, no
underlying motives or reasons, just an aimless wandering from position
to position..." But I must record ny_ disappointment at the wIheol--the-
-debate. Why?' Because while cataclysmic events and bloodshed went on
in Grenada, nobody said anything about the sufferings of a State which
has been associated with us, a West Indian so-called sister-state, toe
which we were nearly forcibly joined in an even closer association.
Yet thousands of the Dominican people hang about near radios listening
with rapt attention to the agonies imposed on our poor neighbours, for
sometimes, simple non-members have a better sense of the relativity of
regional events than those who have been elected to steer and rule them,
"After -2 years of being in charge of the country in a period when
more money- and more power is in the hands of Government than ever before
...we have to listen to the old and continuous chorus 'it' (our dire
situation Ed.) tis the fault of other people'," said Miss Charles, cit-
ing failures iln deep sea fishing, preservation of forest resources, ex-
tension of P.M.H., family planning, road development, "the perennial Deep
Water Harbqur and agro-industries, among other objectives. Schools un-
built though "this is a budget of buildings and more buildings and no
provision Made at all for the life of the people who must endure another
hard year (n 1974" the "hidden taxes" with which Government burdens; the.
taxpayer, 4sd the trick of removing income tax from agricultural pur-
suits and from savings on Bank Accounts...from a Govt. which boasts thatit
is the Government of the little man,...and the apparent fact that Govtiis
proud of the hardships that they have brought to Dominica in the name of
CARIPTA (without looking for any safeguards such as Montserrat proposed)
these were among Miss Charles' tough .penetrating words. And she is
perf ectly right when she derides the way in which Government still keeps
the Valhalq.deal "still shrouded in mystery". I myself read the answerSie
this Hon.Mqmiber's questions: 21 foolscap pages of devious claptrap, cal-
culated to destroy further any illusions doubting and probing minds may
have about concerns whose dates of incorporation are unknown or vague,
whose director-shareholders remain unnamed; one being a subsidiary of the
other, and a complete vagueness about banking records maintained,

Former Deputy Premier aui Minister of
Finafce'tRO.P.Armoar, in making his bid to
reempture his" position as mccensor to' Pro
ier Lctaaue advocated a policy of militant
political %etiea by pri-L4Abr Party fae-
tions iv a means of 'mbiaimniag party con-
trol over all Mapeet"a'f life in Doaiaiiea.
Mr. Armour was speaking at a Labour Park
meeting in Resea in early November 1973,
against the backrOawai' of the Massive C.S.A.
R.lly of November 3rd 1973, which had the
effect of deflating tm official National
Day ebsorvanebs which were held at the B1t-
anit Gardens in Roseam. ?te entire .Shee
Party platform concentrated their attention
in Savaria wad the CSA instead of dealing
with the birming issme of the day like Urn-
epioymenit,- Gas, Val-A0ai the effect of
the Stafte of Emergenacy on the Economy, Pol-
ice iAspiosag. and so ea. In hia tirade
ainst ,.wvaria, Mr. Armour had this to any:
"When (Charles) Savarin (General secretary
of the. Civil Service Association) comes in
the street with 200 fell&. you have to pat
400 fellas and drive tem off the dame moaetl
ins is ihat.ve have.te do in Doeminica today
..Labour Party supporters are mot uiIlitaan
eacugb ... you nojndforppirt.

man po1 iti cal... ( T VAT).
Judging.by their utteracaes, are not Armour
FatriLck Joh~, Active, Leslie, Etienne,Chria-
tifn and Francia much of the same thinking
is Grena-i.s ric Gairy? LoBlanu has seemed
.vt times more Gairy than Gairy and, but for
for the level-headednes of the CSA leaders,s
..Maximea, Symses -and avarin, we would have
pAsed through worse times than those vhich
_-a-roe now unfolding in Grenada.
sy saying *drive.those fellas off the dumw
streets" was not Armour preaching mwr and
bloodshedd? ona. tro. carnival bands meet head
on, -a fight immediately breaks out; what if
a bn"i of Shoe Party supportersa try to break
.up a demonstration of 3,000 people?
.Luckily we in, Dominica did not witness it
hprpen, but Mr.Armzurt* exhortation to Dom--
inicans is now taking place in Grenadna. You
L1ll know ..ow Gairy's etpporters backed by
police and police aiesi (Gairy's Defence
ForeB0, chased peaceful demonstrators off the

handa on, asmst ti a break. up is atteu~-?
Rasal t dead 'a&' wunAted on both sides.

The polician-provokers of violence do not
expect to be among the dead. They are coy-
ards and while they large the people to
make, war on each other they gnin time and
either strengthen their positions or es-
Cepe, as the case may be. They never jo
themselves to drive anybody off the stmets.
When they learn that violence from their
agent will be repaid not only to those
agents but to themselves, peace might re-
turn. Thuas police and political agents
in disturbed VWrt Indianjiislands should
wait for the Gairy types to come in per-
son and load them, when next they are
asked to shoot down their brothers in
the streets. A

I am a keen listed er to Dr.Mullerb
classical concert every Sunday. But
I think it is horrible for them to
follow it with some W-nferior music
which is neither West Indian,jazz or
anything particular. Surely such a
fine broadcast as the concert should
be followed by drama' or prose or any-
thing else. And furthermore I do not
like to hear a movement from Beethoven
or some great composer cut off un-
finished. Please consider remedying
this, poor old Radio Dominica.

reveiation'at the existence of such a
:ook. It is. apparently a part of the
literary testament he called "the
main part of my works" in an
interview Aug. 23 with the
As,.ociated Press and Le Monde of
The novelist said in the Interview
that the KGB had threatened hit
rife, but added that "my death will
not make happy those people who
count on my death to stop my
lterary activities.
"Immediately after my death, or
immediately after 1 have
disappeared or have been deprived
of my liberty," the novelist said,
"my literary last will and testament
will Irrevocably come into force ...
and then the main body of my
works- will start being published.

Wh'e Church?

Sir, would you be kind
enough to publish this letter
for me;
The Church is the most
powerful, highest and
respected institution in -the
world. This is the institution
that God is depending on to
evangelise the world and to put.
man back on the right track.
The Church should not be
dictated to by the state or any
other organization when it
comes in conflict with God's
law. One of the purposes of the
Church is to guide the state
and to make sure that God is
always in the centre of any
decision made that would
affect its people.

What it seems to me in our:
community today, is that
certain Church leaders have
reduced themselves to mere
puppets of the state, only,
looking out for themselves an4d
f0" what they can get; they re-
jliind me of the pharisees of
old, like to be seen.and sit in
high places doing their best to
brain wash their followers
when they should be about
their father's business
condoning what is good and
speaking out against what is
wrong like their predecessors
of old namely: St. Paul, St..
Peter, Prophet, Nathan, ,the 3
Hebrew Boys and a host- of
others; whose only objective
was to win souls for Christ's
Kingdom at any cost, even if it
leiant going into the Kilgs $
Court to tell himn he was doing

In order for the Church to
survive and be a lighthouse
for men and women, its lead-
ers need to rise above petty
politics and place themselves in
a position to speak out against
the wrong doing of the OLP.

TOURISM, combined with a more promiscuous and permisitve
Bahamian society and male homosexuality, were cited
as contributing to the rise of venereal disease in the Bahamas.

Dr. Richard E. Crawford,
addressing the West Rotary
on "Venereal Disease" said a
contributing factor was "proati-,
rution and the call-girl
He said that sex education
be made a part of a school's
He described Monday
mornings at his, and the offices
of other doctors in "private
and public practice," as being
"filled with a variety of
patients among whom is a
group who have something in
common. They are men usually
between the ages of -17 and
30 suffering from sex-related
Limiting his talk to
gon orrhoea and syphilis, the
doctor spoke on the symptoms
of the two diseases "known in.
mtie- -0aiasmas since the 15
century." '
The patients usually seek
treatment after experiencing-
some discomfort caused by the
disease, he said.
He said too that "in 1970,
the number of reported cases
was.just over 100, but in 1972
there were 673 reported cases"
of venereal disease in the
Bahamas. His opinion too, was

that the figures were inaccuIate
and based only on the cases
that were reported.
"it is the tourist industry
that is responsible for
introducing venereal disease to
our shores," the doctor said.
"Every day people arrive here
from overseas and despite the
fact that many do look grand.
they may be carriers of
venereal disease."
He said that "over the past
twenty years, promiscuity and
permissiveness has increased.
There is a great deal of sexual
freedom," which might be due
to the birth-control pill.
"Male homosexuality has
increased and as they tend to
have many male contacts, they
tend to be a reservoir of
venereal disease," Dr. Crawford
said. ___ ,
He felt that controlling the
spread of the disease depended
on sex-education compared to
"the contact-tracing method"
as used in many countries.
He felt the latter .method
had its handicaps as "usually
the relationship between the
man and the woman may be
fleeting or casual or so clouded
by alcohol that it is impossible
to find the contact again. "

not competent to deqid. what is the busi-
ness of a citizen,z d I wish to let him
know that everything is the business of a
citizen who pays .taips for services from
the Government." It.is the business of
all Dominicans who pay taxes to grumble,
to complain and to-protoest when any over-
