TRIBUTE TO JEFF CHARLES
(who left to take up a job with the
B.B.C. this week)


S T AR !,riday',1ebiuary 22, 1974


In June of nineteen hundred seventy three
A conflict broke out between oppressors and froe,
And in that conflict was a fearless marshal
In `the person of well-loved Jefferson Charles.
Rules were soon issued to Radio Dominica
SWhich would have disgraced. Vor-tor of South Africa;
We all knew that Jeff would never give way,
Althoughwe wished him evermore to stay.
Come February second of nineteen seventy-four,
The shocking news was READ by the rich and the poor
That "Daddy Jeff" would be leaving for England,
Mournfully,forced to leave his own beloved land.,
Now Jeff, it is sad that you had to go,
But in our hearts you will always be here,. you knLow.
0 gosh man we are really going to miss you -
ALL, I mean all our listeners .- not just a few.
Good luck and good-bye to you, dear Daddy Jeff*
I speak and write on behalf of the dumb and blind and
For another like you will be impossible to gett
o--one- day- "THEY" are bound to feel regret.
0 you worthy sporta-loving son of our soil,
How frank and firm you were amidst great turmoil!
Remember, we'll be waiting with an open door
To welcome you back home on our island's shore:
I close these gripping pensive lines of mine
(Unable to speak, I must swallow my saline)...
Hopeful am I-that when we hear of you
We'll have one-consolation c'est Jeff tout doux.
And now, although we hate to see you go,
We lift voices and hats for a well-done BRATVO
Our democratic rights and freedom you did defend,
So ... adios and au revoir to you, Jeff iT friend.
M 0- U R N E R, Petite Savanne.

Mr. Patrick John, Dep.Premier and Minister of Finance warned the Water-

also the language Gairy has been using against his opponents, particul-
arly of the New Jewel Movement; so Dominicans please take warning really,
Mr. John., a one-time student at St. Mary s Academy (but we do not know
at what Form he left the School) added, according to REUTER: "We find
not only in Dominica but thr oughout the Caribbean, groups of pseudo-int-
ellectuals who believe and give -the impression that they have the answers
and/or solutions for all problems."
We of the STAR do not recognize pseudo-intellectuals. We just kndw
intellectuals and morons in our daily lives.
