The second half of Mr. Pat Stevens motion
which called on Government to tender its resignar
don: after a vote of NO CONFIDENCE, was re-
moved from the Order Paper. The Motion received
late radio publicity.
In the Rouse, the Mover's rights were
- eroded when the Speaker stopped the debate
during a supporting speech by R.S.adoello.e
gugenia Charles never got a chnmee to hafre.

"I'd like my paycheck early because I won't be in
the rest of the week. We employees are forming a
cricket team tomorrow.

Because his recent behaviour was causing a
breakdown in Police morale, Mr. Arnold Active
(who held the post of Home Affairs Minister since
July 1973), was dismissed from the job this week.
Mr. Active had instructed the Police to allow bail
for a young Labour Party Supporter when he was
brought in after an incident involving a Spacial
Constable, also a Labour partisan. All the Special
Constables threatened to resign unless the matter
was cleared
Succeeding Mr. Active in the vital post at
Home Affairs is Mr. John Royer, a cousin of the

thet pleasant days of a banana boom
beggars (visible on our streets in the dim
ptsi)-h4ad most vanished troaite r1
scene. Now that poverty is general save in
top- bracket and ministerial circles, and
now that there are shortages of certain
foodstuffs, the beggars are becoming viYsi
ble again, and they are of all ages,
In the Beans (Trmrs.)an Act was passed
to penalise idle or disorderly persons
from loitering (fine #26).Whilo we regret
that idleness in a tropical island is now
a crime, especially whon involuntary, it
ta one way of rounding up the wayward
young. Why not cash in on beggars too by
charging then poreentago license fees?
A lot of time, money and expertise have been
spent on Village Councils this week, and indeed
for the past few years. This is always presented as
a democratic exercise and is close to Cabinet's
heart, as through many of these V.Cs. they main-
tain their grip. This week U.N. lent their voices
to instruct V.C. Clerks at the Dominica Grammar
School, while students loafed. We hope the adult
education was well learnt,
In the house, Ii papers (Order and By Laws)
were presented by the Deputy Premier all to do
with Village Councils,

We ar surrmanded by it. Law abiding citizens feel the need to
take extraordinary precautions to protect their property and

A. -onstitutional Affront.
It is bad enough to delay a meeting
of Parliament when *ilangE' go wrong in
the State to avoid exposure and blame.
It is doubly bad to rush a meeting of
the House of Assembly without telling
the taxpayer what you are going to
discuss. 4
Even if the ruling government is
'aware that the Opposition cannot pre-
vent the. passage of any BAll'whether
good or bad, the GQover4ment should. an-
nounce its intentions "
But Mr.LeBlano is a desperate man,
and..no one must be .surprised at any
undemocratic, unconstitutional or un-
becoming happening in outr o--caXled.

Dear Madam, Do ca' IDma 4
I send you these low lines, 'hoping
they will- be published in your cqlumns
because my heart bleeds to see Hon.
Premier Leblanc seems to be .destroying
the great, image of Dominica '
When I consider' the great brains
that Dominica has produced'(even you
Madam), like Bishop Bo-trs.. Reyorend
Potter, Dr.McIntyre, 'Mr. Q.C.A4eyne,
the Sorha~ndos, etc.~ etc....and to
see that Mr.Leblanc, as the people say,
tooklout arat and put in a mouse as
a. Minister,, one who can-'t even read
his own name properly, I can ohiyfome
to the conclusion, it is because or. :
Leblanc has seen the writing.-_. the
wall and because too he hasn't 'got
the education like those mentioned
above.. Is he doing, thi purpqsely
for Dominica to becoe"a laughing:-
stock in the eyes of the world ? But
thak. God,, what "Mr.Lebltanc dbe4 not
know or realise, the world know the
great names that Doiihica has 1poduced
IJ Madam, I have a lot more to pay
about this man because --1 to61ol him

P.S. Madam# I also heard that the man

his country seat. 'He had come; he )3A

for 1974 is -55,000 tons. But many bananas
stay here, and-the "unprofitable, senseless"
and profligate Shoe Government loses much-
needed revenue.
But the Chairman did not see one thing:
he did not' see the. inhuman deal which was
meted out to the women of Dominica: .
(i) washing bananas in cold water; stadifhng
for three days hid three half nights on end.
(ii) the carrying of-heavy bunches of-bahan-
