UNFAIR TO BOYS
Boys in the Senior Forms of the new
Roseau Boys' Schoob are much dismayed
to'learn that they are to be put out of the /
school to make room, for girls and their
parent-are- eWen' more angry:. Imagine af- :
ter settling down to all day studies in a new
building, these boys (who are working to-
wards secondary school places) are to be
S., .put out and reduced to i 5 p.m. school
In Goodwii to make ro6m for girls.
Now the STAR Editor'i s a strong-
defender of women's rights and favours co-
education. B u t it is definitely unfair to
raise the boys' hopes and dash them down.;
Moreover, t h e provision of girls toilets
shows that Govt. planned to do this all a-
long, and never informed the public.

that doctors are selfish; greedy money--

I N CO ME TA X R'E LI F
A Personal Viewpoint .- Dr.John Royc
(fr.-.1) Here are some facts which
were the basis for our demands.
Some recent articles in the. 'New
Chronicle' show that there is real
and increasing concern over the lack
of-doctors in the State and the fact
-tht. many Dominicans (who previously
had the record in the West Indies for-
returning home) may not. return to
practise, in. Dominica and in fact some
have Jeef. The present doctors there-
fore felt that some Iincentives were
necessary to keep doctors here and to
maintain a decent standard -of living
(after 10 'or more years of arduous
study!). We, mentioned a number :'of
such possibilities to the Premier in-
cluding tax-exemptions, house allow-
ance, upgraded salaries, mileage revi-
sion, country practice allowance etc
etc. The fact that the same may apply
to other professionals is totally'
irrelevant since we were not seeing
the Hon. Premier on behalf of teachers,
-policemen, lawyers, farmers, civil
servants etc. Surely they can fight ,
for themselves
Further, the government of Dominica
cannot pay doctors, full time satisfao-
tory salaries, so the doctors need a-
supplemental form af earning -.-.. henc6
private practice.' Dominica is very
poor, so that even with the five to
ten dollars now. be ing. charged .per
patient in 'off-icels,many people cannot
and 'do not pay the fees (sometimes as.
'high as 10 -to 15 per cent of all,
patients. seen), although this fee"' for
service is considerably lower tha "
what is charged in most of the other,
West Indian islands. Moreover,,with
office rent of over $100 monthly, pro-
fessional fees of $100 yPa., telephone
and Light Bill of some $180 annually,
office equipment... there are not -the
fanta tic sums of money made as some .
might, assume. -In, fact some doctors are:
finding-it very difficult t6 exist,muc..
.a 'to 1ve in Dominica and from per-
sonal experience owe more in taxes-than
their saved earnings even after a
period of nearly 10 years of practice
in Dominica
T- he sad fact of the matter is that-
unless and until many such ,concessions
as -we demand are ..met many doctors will
leave Dominica. It iS important to
'note that our requests are not unique
to Dominican doctors or without prece-
dence. In many territories of the-
Caribbean, house' allowance;, .tax exemp-
tionsi(such as Farmers' of Dominica are
enjoying this year and forever?) and
even grocery allowance, for interns


FO R C0 CT 0 R S?

The o0L ervat ions made by Rupert
Sorhaindo in the- !iday September.
13, 1974 edition of the tar. on'
'Tax Relief' for doctors will ln"ad
support in many quarters and
hopefully among the doctors them-s
selves. Our doctors are*.a privi-
leged minority even among.profess-
ionals. To seek any kind of exempt
tion from ,taxes od personal incomel-
is the most-,unfair request that
our otherwise responsible medical
practitioners could associate them-
selves with.,
It is widely held. that a. doctor'|
earning from private practise is
more than his civil service salary
.Land allowances combined, -It is
therefore difficult to see what
arguments the doctors could advance
to0support.their request for tax
exemptions. It is my considered
opinion that the doctors, are already
enjoying a measure of tax relief
as they do not- issue stamped 2?e*
.ceipts for fees. Perhaps, the. doc-
tors would( wish to consider om- ,
plying with this provision of the
;law- and then submitting their num.-
bered receipt books, or, an audited
, .statement of same, to the Inland
Revenue Department when making
their annual returns,.
Premier John, on -the other hand,.:
must stop this nonsense.of telling
everybody- "we will look into that."
Promises, the Premier must under-
stand,. are debts. When collection-
time comes around Premier John is
going to be in & lot of hot water
if he has not kept his 101 promises.

M 0 RE 0 N INQ UIRIES -- b M.G. White
Madam,
.1 refer to your piece on the "Inquiry on Dominica Marketing
Board" which appeared in your Sept. 13 issue under the influential name
of E. C. Loblack.
Assuming that these are the respected gentleman's genuine independent
and considered thoughts and not the usual attempt at-.mischief by a devious
monster using poor old Loblack for her (his) personal ends, I would like
to confirm my total endorsement of his idea of such an inquiry.
An inquiry into the workings of the Marketing Board in all its aspects
is long overdue and before I even seriously considered resigning from that
institution, I strongly urged the responsible Minister, on more than one
occasion in his office (once, I think, in the presence of the Chairman)
that it would be good if he commissioned such an inquiry. For some reason
this idea was not implemented and I hope the new mood of inquiry will
allow it to blossom.
There is one thing which is, however, a bit curious (apart from the
fact that we know what sentences Mr. Loblack is and is not capable of con-
structing) and it is the fact that the writer found it necessary to make
the point that the Manager (presumably myself) would have to be called in
"to give an account of his stewardship". Certainly, an inquiry is an
inquiry, and in relation to the Marketing Board, would necessarily have to
encompass all its activities, and all its relationships, and all its per-
sonnel, past and present. How else could it be meaningful? An intelligent
board of inquiry could not be satisfied with less. Have we so soon for-
gotten Watergate? 0
.Regarding the suggested composition of the Board I agree with the pro-
posal of an independent qualified accountant, and perhaps a knowledgeable
farmer could prove useful. But where does an independent barrister come
in? (or did the writer have one in mind, one perhaps who has sat success-
fully on a number of boards, institutions, companies and individuals?)
If the important purposesof an inquiry are to be served, I would think that
the contribution of someone with a solid background in the subject of the
inquiry, Marketing, would be more relevant, more effective and more logical,
than'that of a barrister, however "independent". (Surely the days when a
particular 'barrister was seen as the inevitable adviser on all matters,
moral, legal, political, religious and economic, are over?).
Finally may I assure the Board, when it is set up, of my complete co-
operation. A subpoena will not be necessary. M.G.W
G 0 MMENTS : by Rupert Sorhaindo
Resignation of Chairman of the Dominica Cricket Association.. .A Radio
Dominica news item of a. fortnight or so ago informed the public of the
5esigation and subsequent replacement of the Hon. Arnold Active, Parlia-
mentary Secretary and former Home Affairs Minister in the Labour Govern-
ment, as Chairman of the Dominica Cricket Association.
However, not a word was said about the circumstances which led to that
resignation. I have been reliably informed by sources close to the Execu-
tive of the Association, who prefer to remain anonymous, that the decision
stemmed from an irregular 3s tu;ati OA
I do not consider it my responsibility to disclose the details; I think
that it is the responsibility of the Cricket Absociation to give the rele-
vant information to the Dominican sporting circle.
The Secretary of the. Cricket Association, Mr. Royston Ellis, has used
his "Commentary Box" column in the .Educator to point out the dangers- of
overpopulation, to praise Radio Dominica for its morning programming, and
to examine the "unfair" wage structure of a leading commercial house. He
Eas, too, insinuated in one of his articles (albeit mistakeitly) that Domi-
nicans go to the House of Assembly for the same reasons that the Ancient
Romans went to the Coliseum (to see "a good" fight). I wonder whether Mr.
Ellis will have tie' couragee to use his "Commentary Box" to state and com-
ment on the circumstances surrounding the resignation of Mr. Active on the
Cricket Association Executive. Dominican .cricket supporters (financial and
otherwise). have a right to know. The Dominican publQ has a right to know.
Andit. is important that the Dominican be told the full story" (See p.6-

DOMIEICA & HISTORY E.C.Loblack
On Friday, Srpt.13, I met in pass-
in about a0 young boys having a big
debate. They said they had listened
to Mr. Honychurch giving the past
history of Dominica. This history
seems to show that Dominica under the
Leblanc Shoe Party (so-called Labour
Party)has lost more of her prestige.
They said that for Dominica today to
breathe the breath of life, all
Dominicans, young and old, rich and
poor must join together and kick out
the Leblanc Shoe Party once and for
all. They said they believe, that
Leblanc has bankrupted the country
and run away and put Patrick John as
Premier of Dominica. They said there
is no difference between Patrick and
Leblanc except that Patrick is keep-
ing the Church close, which Leblanc
hadn't done.
These young men said if they had
the power, after seeing the Grand Bay
School which was built by a Canadian
expert, they would inform the Bri-
tish Govt., Canadian Govt. and Ameri-
can Govt. that whatever aid they in-
tend to give Dominica, for God's
sake let them send their own experts
to manouevre all the difficult pro-
jects which they sponsor. They their
asked me what I thought of that and
I told them I agreed with them 10026
and I feel all Dominicans will agree
with them including you, Madam Edi-
tor. They said next before Patrick
John,' Premier, passes a law to deal
with Dreads, it would be better for
him to call back Leblanc to give an
account of his stewardship. -E.C.L
14th Sept. 1974
GRACE AND FAVOUR
An entire section of Standard V
of Roseau Boys School, before that
school moved to new premises, failed
to get places in secondary schools,
evidently because the children had
never studied the subject matter
used in the questions. But, one boy
was lucky. His mother made represen-
tations to a Sec. School Headmaster,
and he was accepted: his. Mum is a
worker on the premises.
MORE PAPER SHORTAGE Another ma-
jor British newspaper shrank to Tabloi
loid size today in hopes of repeat-
ing the magic formula that has lately
spelt success in a difficult market
Latest deserter from the loftier
broadsheet ranks was the London Even-
ing News,, a paper now selling just
under a million copies daily.
The 1News thus joined its stable
mate, the Daily Mail, which went
Tabloid in 1971, and has since steadi-
ly gained strength.

COSTLY MARKET DEFECTS
Because there were "basic de-
fects" in the original installa-
tions of the new Roseau Market,
these will have to be corrected
from a 11,600 grant from the
British Government, Chillroom and
freezer units, are to be modified;
the drainage in the uncovered sec-
tion also has to be improved.
SOCIAL CEiNTRE xqOW IiCORPORATED
An -infusion of $400,000 from,
an American Foundation came as the
Social Centre moved to become a
corporate body. Sister Evelina
John Phillip is its first President,
with Sister Alicia who founded the
Centre at the request of the Bishop
of Roseau in 1950, as its Managing'
Director and Mr. Charles Maynard
and other Dominicans on the Board.
Hopes for increased productive de-
velopment are thus-given an impetus,
MIi4IKG COMPANY LICENCE
Since the signing of the: Deep-
water Contract, Dominica Mining
Co. has been officially notified
that they will not be granted any
further licence to undertake mining
operations here. They will be limi-
ted to the mining of pumice, Some-
one evidently awarded the contract
without consulting the Premier.
READER S VIEW Not So Unhygenic.
On Aug. 15, a correspondent sign-
ing "Dominican" wrote complaining
of unhygenic conditions in the air-
port washroom and restaurant kitchen
or she may have meant the main
lavatories but surely not the res-
taurant toilets, which are always
carefully cleaned. As to the kit-
chen, it would be fairer if this
room (as also the toilets) could be
observed between flights, and not
just when visitors are rushing in
and out or when food is actually
being prepared. Every kitchen
shows some untidiness during the
preparation of meals. And visitors
are sometimes careless in washrooms.

such officials will be lacking.
And the consequences could be
disastrous*' R.S.
