AFTER SEVEN YEARS
by Anne -Joolfson
Ever since-we left Dominica,
"-which had become our second home,.
I had been dreaming and planning.
for the day when we would return*
It came and once more is gone. TiMe
which is so strange, seems to
play tricks; with one, but this s4Lf-
sane element has not done too much.
to Dominica in those seven years .
True, there are imposing houses
Canefield, a large Government build-
ing, a few new shops and. apartmeAts
in Roseau, and each village is, i
boasting of a new police station,-
but with minor exception, the people,
the heart of Dominica, are as :i
friendly and hospitable as they ever
were. My husband was remembered :
with affection by his, old patients'
in all the places where he attended.
-clini6c It is gratifying to be
greeted by so many after so long .
Our stay was memorable and maLe
even more so by the kindness of .:
Deborah and Roderick Fortune at *vypse
home we stayed; a home which became
ours while- we were 'with them. They,
as C"couple," personified all our
friend in Dominica,.
There were a few' bad things w4pch
occurred which troubled me and none
more awful: than the death of Keith
Alleyie, whose name was given to Us
before we left the U.K. in 1964
the man to know and respect in
Dominica and indeed, he was amongst
th( first whom we did meet and wh6o
befriended us. Pate has so many '
strange quirks for as in 1964 he
Was the first person, we me.t and
talked to,: in 1974 We landed at Mel-
ville Hall the very time of his
burial,
Space in the STAR I know is limi-
ted,' so to conclude nmy one hope is-
that the Emerald: Isle of the _Cariby
bean will -grow as green and lush a4,
before, that the troubles that beset
her now, will' disappear, just-ice w,1i
be done and the. fear that surmount
-her people will go and once more sihe
will prosper and flourish,' and we '
hope that the next seven years will ~
be bnefs of"development. Thank youi;
all our friends in Dominica, for a!
most wonderful holiday.
(Written in Antigua en route to U.K.).

It-was a weekend of whispers, con-
jectures, raking past incidents.
Everyone had something to say, bad
or good.
The Premier had resigned!
Conjectures flew far and wide and
at Ma Titine's Baby was giving her
own version.
"Way papa, lookit! According to de
loudspeaker, now de ship sinkin is

De onlee lifeboat de ship have, de

Ma Titine snapped the suitcase
shut.
"When things hot is then I leaving;
anyway, if God spare life, I'll come
,back for the elections, if as they
presume, it may be in October."
'"Dis electionn goin toff...is a be.eg
fight dat will have garconi" Baby said
gleefully.
"So all'the Unions join:...and
they will seMnd up their candidate."
"Umhni.p. Baby stared into sp8'e

CHURCUWLLU'S 100th AALIlXi-6-kT
The Churchill year celebration
bells are already ringing: the Duke
of Marlborough has opened an exhi-
bition of Churchill's trophies. ,It
was opened by Mary, (Churchill't ~
daughter) Lady Soames. Richard
Burton rolled out the great wartime
speeches of Sir Winston's so well.
A lump-in-throat experience.
Jack le Vien is preparing with
the BBG a major Churchill film to
go out to the world on November 30O
the 100th anniversary of Churchill5
birth. It is concerned with the
years leading uto tbewar and will
be called in words used by
Churchill -A Walk With Destiny.
Richard Burton plays Churchill.
Le Vien had the bold idea of asking
Sarah Churchill, who was after all ;
a fair actress, to play the then
Mrs. Churchill. Sarah thought aboqt
it for some time and finally decide
it was 'a bit incestuous' Other
parts are as yet unallocated.
CSA STATEMENT
'The Dominica Civil Service Asso-1
ciation has called on the Minister'
of" Finance to indicate an early
date for the payment of revised sa
laries and full retroactive pay to
Dominica Public Servants. This re-
quest is contained in a letter to
the Premier and Minister of Financq
Mr.Patrick John, dated 23rd July,
1974, and signed by Charles Savari%
General Secretary of the C.S.A.
The C.SoA.request stems, the
letter says, from the impatience 6o
individual civil servants prompted'
by the continued rise in the high
cost of living which "has soared tq
a point where all public officers
without exception are finding them-o
selves out of pocket." The 0.S A.
letter reminded the Minister of
this communication. The spokesman
added that he was hopeful that a
positive reaction would be forth-
coming shortly because he felt con-,
fident that the Minister of Financq,
was not insensitive at this time td.
the awkward situation posed by a
discontented public service. Our
members are aware, the spokesman
added, that Government has. made.
statements which are on public re-
cord, (concluded page 8).


ADIEU, CAPITAINE
'by J.R.Ralph Casimir
Adiieu, Capitaine:
Beware HNow, exit the 'Head of State'
Failing to scuttle the 'Ship of State
He's a reckless, poor skipper
Who can't manage the rudder.
There's, been a lot of buffoonery,
How fares Dominique's economy?
Say, how stands your coffer?
'Tis weaker or tougher?
Don't care a damn AT the limping ship
Hence no account of your stewardship.
Forgo and akip
The "Pension Slip"
And make reparations
For untold afflictions. --
Adieu, Capitaine:
THE N*AR STREAK
Earlier in the year at Bahamasair
HQ. in Nassau, some young ladies
were laid off by the' airline; they
were told to come back and bring their
uniforms at which time they would'be
paid off. '
SOne of the ladies insisted that.
ohe was not leaving the airport with-
out her money. She was told that no,
phe would get it when she returned
with the uniform.
So she took off her uniform, depo-"
sited it on the desk, once again de-
manded her money and after being paid
left the terminal in her two pieces
of underwear shouting out appropriate
epithets at the airline...and others
QUOTE OF. THE WEEK "The higher a
monkey climbs the more he exposes
