.WHY CS.A. SUPPORTS IIfDiPENDENT CANDIDATE JOSEPH
The' C.S.A. has decided to endorse the candidacy of INEPENDE1T CANDI-
DATE A. Erederidk Joseph not because of any hostility to the two political
parties contesting the Goodwill Constituency but because the Association
is satisfied that Mr. Joseph as a man and as a trade unionist stands for
"fair play-and justice for all*."
It is because of this-.strong belief in these principles that. the
Association in 1971 submitted Mr. Joseph's name along with three others to
His Excellency the Governor' for selection to fill one of the six places on
the Public, Service Commission as provided for under. the Dominica Consti-
tution Order, 1967.
Mr. Joseph has served on the Public Service Commission with distinqt-
ion,"6particularly .n a situation' where the other members of the PS.. .
iweare all party stooges.
Any .Civil Servant who has had to seek C.S.A. representation on matters
of appointments and acting appointments must be grateful for Mr. Joseph's
insistence that the claims of all eligible officers must be examined before
an appointment is made,
On the question, of dideiplinary control Mr. Joseph has recorded hi-s
objections to P.S.C. decisions which were obviously biased and motivated
by. party political consideration. He therefore objected to the actions
Stake by the P. S,;. in. the Radio.' Dominica Affair and had his vote against

following the strike, WThe records Will show that the civil servant has no
better chappion outside the CPS.A than Anthony Frederick Joseph.
As a trade unionist, .when he pledges his support- he does not withdraw

.The Q.,SA. .is therefree satisfied that Mr. Joseph would provide C.S.A.
General Secretary Charles Savarin with the type of support in the House
which would-enable him to represent both his Portsmouth Constituency and.
the interest of Civil Servants effectively .
(1). Mr. Joseph believes in- dialogues between employer and the union.
H2) He objects strongly to the Civil Service Act and will do all in his
power to have it rescinded.
(3) H e'ti dleves that the wholesale. restrictions on civil servants should
be lifted and that some should be allowed. to take part in local
Government and National politics.
(4) He'belieVes in the Agency Shep.
(5) There must be prior consult stion with the union on staff matters,
Jvte says. e
(6) Party stooges have no.place on P.S.C. lHe has said this several times.
(7) If Ministers attack civil servants on the public platform, civil
servants must have the right to reply. That's his position.
MEMBER HsE VOTE and Dot STRIKE ACTION is the mosatpowerful
weapon which the civil 'servant possess.
We have been. pushed around but now we have our chance: $f we don't
take itwae may never have another chance,

-DOMNICA NATIOAL4 YOUTH COUNCIL, disgusted"by the brutal jounalistic
attack on a prominent woman of our community, wrote to the local 8ec.
of the International Women's Year Committee as follows on March 18:-.
"It is with deep concern and disgust wb read the front page article
of the "Educator' of Wednesday, 12th March, 1975 entitled "Danger Lady,"
a brutal attack on the personality of Mary Eugenia Charles, a prominent
woman not only ;ii ar State but' in the region and in international cir-
cles as well."'
Stating that they are not politically-motivated and that "the stan-
dard of politics in our State -needs drastically to move up from the
gutter?." The letter continues:
"In this 1975 Internaional Woman's Year, a year when, according to
the Labour Party's Manifesto, Article #2 IN WOMEN'S RIGHT, they SEEK
further to improve the conditions of women..,", we cannot imagine that a
,candidate from the party can publicly flout his manifesto and contradict
his party's policy in the space of a few days.
"Therefore, the National Youth Council. calls upon this general body,
on behalf of all women of.this State, to ask the writer of this article,
Hon. Eustace Francis: to publicly apologise to the lady concerned,
M.Eugenia Charles before March 24, 1975 and/or opt out the forthcoming
general' elections on principle, not because she belongs to any party,
(1) It belittles the dignity and morals of .ll the women of our State
and husilates the entire society whose mothers are women;
(f The personal attack was unwarranted and uncalled for;
(iii It is No politics as far as Dominica and development is concerned;
,(iv) We expect a higher code of conduct from the people who sea. to.-.'-.
represent us at national, regional and international levelsls"
Signing ?In the-spirit of youth," are
Charmaine R,Dominique and EuVilla Lewif for the N.Y.C.
PACE FACTS .. Keep Red Herrings out .f the Trac
Against.the self-expressed declaration that the Labour Shoe Party has
neglected the People for 15 years, the Shea Party embarrassed candidates
are putting out insinuations that the other election candidates may be
inclined to be easy with the tieads.
We deem this to be a wicked and malicious insinuation deliberately
fabricated by the Labour Shoe Party, for the sole purpose of pulling a red
herring along the track, and to blackail and besmear other people with
their own creation. That belated cunning manoeuvre is designed with in-
telt to create mischief and confuse the. absent-minded Electorate.
We all People of the State can well remember that it was at a Labour
Shoe Party Convention held at Castle Bruce, that the late Premier of the
State proclaimed publicly that he, the Shoe Party Premier, was the first
Black Power.. It has long been agreed and accepted by all and sundry, that
it was from this abominable egg that the Dreads were subsequently hatched
and developed. When the; Labour Party took over the Government of this
country -fifteen years ago, there were no Dreads in Dominica. It has there-
fore been the bounden duty and obligation of the Labour Shoe .Party to
clean their own mess and pass over the country as they met it. It is
nothing short of low political cunning, that any individual or Party should
attempt to Trade on the suppression of the Dreads.
We are all confident that the Dreads have outlived themselves.
A SENIOR VOTER, Northern District,
S TO PI1 L ISTEN: '(words from Vieille Case area) -", -
It appears that the ex-Premier of Dominica has resigned his post just
for the sake of canvassing.- I came to Vieille Case on Sunday 16th March
and to my great surprise I met Mr. Edward .liver LeBlanc presented on a
platform as chairman of Mr. Eden Bowers. o

CAN D I COMMENT S by. W.S. Stevens
Banana Rape on Eve of General Election
These notes are addressed to banana growers throughout Dominica.
Premier Patrick John and his DBGA- for the Management Committee with
Mr. Joffre Robinson at its head is the appointed tool and scourge& of the
Bananaa people's. bread and butter- John has decreed that regardless of the
rise in the G.M.P., banana. growers must accept 7,5 a: Ib -for bananas from
March-September 1975, said to be a British condition.
Before this release or decree the G.M.P* rose to 165.00 per ton
which upon calculation should bring banana growers in Dominica approximate-
ly 100 per lb.
Does "the Patrick John Govt, begrudge this for the hard-worked banana
producer although cost of living is fabulously high and banana cultiva-
tion is expensive and demands constant attention And physical strength
from prepariiF.t 6a- organised market at the boxing. plant...?
Last month Premier Patrick on his; return frorh England promised growers
at Marigot that he would appoint an inquiry into Ihe industry. This month
he and his high-handed Banana Comitteea have given the grower a deadly blow,
which stunned the poor banana farmer.
The excuse, if it can be so called, is the banana authority will bank
the extra 820 or whatever it is and use it in the interest of'the banana
The banana industry stands in need of full-scale inquiry. Growers
groan under paying over and over for fertilizer and foam pads. Every day
people ae complaining at the office in Hanover Street.-
The burden of the baana debt caused mainly by the construction of
luxurious boxing sheds when an Armour was President or Chairman of the
DBGGA wAs laid firmly and squarely on the shoulders' of the grower by Ex--'
PRenpien LeBlanc, Nobody kaows or sees these secret accounts. Salary in-
creases with car allowances are also a secret.
And' when recently a lone protest is made against what is obviously
.plain'piece of nepotism in the selection of a site' of a rnew boxing shed at
Vaun'Haxll, the thing goes through even with nominees of gove r~nmnt,
We are on the eve of a 4Tial General Election, and thi.b in the

PATRICK JOHN .CAMPAIGNS WITH POLIC], GUNS, and TEAR: GAS : by MAGNUS
Premier Patrick John, described in Portsmouth as the Chef (i.e. Chief..
Cook of the Labour Party visited Portsmouth on Saturday March 15,1975 as
part of the Labour Party'e programme of giving a boost to their local party
candidates in the forthcoming General Elections.
Mr. John arrived in Portsmouth driving his own: ar with loudspeakers
blaring Calypso Rose s 'Jam dem Backt. This car was closely followed by a
number of private cars overflow ng .with uniformed police, a volkswagon
police van 'filled With police and defence force personnel '-in plain clothes,
and a police' truck .similarly loaded.
Thus equipped, Premier John and Party camr to Portsmouth to 'Jam Back'
the people of Portsmouth. The Labour Party platform was made up of medic-
ally boarded off Isaiah Thomas, Vic Riviere, Oliver, Seraphin, Eustace
Francis, Michael Douglas and. Chief Cook Patrick Johni. The master of cere-
monies was a guy from Mar igot referred to as'Super Dude, because he adopts
,a Yankee accent, broad brimmed.hat and block heels. -
After saying Yea. and Yeao the M.C. called on the speakers one by one
to address a crowd most of whom were-,raving Charles Savarin posters and ,
shouting 'No' to the Labour Shoe Party gang,. The show did go on, with each

LITTLE MAN LIMTE MIND
The leader of the Labour Party has (I
understand) promised that if we vote Shoe
Party he will get us an Oil Refinery, and
this will mean 4,000 jobs for Dominicans.
I do not know how the Premier arrived at 1
this figure, but I am inclined to thiAkwe
must swallow it with a couple grainsafsalt
Shell Curacoa is the 4th or 5th lanpst
refinery in the world; including wharves,
piers & tank parks, but excluding living
quarters for staff and workers, it is lar-
ger than New Town, Roseau and Goodwill
combined, yet it intends employing only
half that number. Of course, it all de-
pends on what the Premier means or under-
stands by an Oil Refinery. We can only
hope that this is not another case or
worse of Sunday Island or Val Halla.
One of our ex-Premier's favourite
themes is that his Govt. gave us roads,
schools and many other things. What are
the facts? On Schools, simply this: Cana-
dian and British taxpayers' money; for
roads and practically everything else,
British taxpayers'money. A few exampless-

cation ) 344, 000
OXFAM towards Health Cents 48, 000
Space does not permit me to give a
full list of the aid that the British
Government has given us, but at least
you now know who gave us Schools, Roads,
Clinics etc., and whom we should be
thankful to. Bear this in mind
NOW: can you believe the following?
The Labour shoe Party claim that their
political interest is in promoting the
welfare of the poor and underprivileged
in our society e.g. the 'little people'

IS SUCCESS NOW A BAD WORIL ?
A long and intelligent article on this
subject cannot be printed in full here.
We can only quote. "The recent attempt
by the Educator and other Labour sources
fat the degradation of the Roseau Central
candidate (M.E.Charles)during the forth-
coming:.election, is a perfect example of
what could be 'Success Now a Bad Word'.
The editor of the Educator has stooped
below the level of the worms in his am-
bition to defeat a woman candidate and to
besmirch a woman who is much above his
head. He has shown that in his greed for
power he will stop at nothing. Should such
a man gain a seat at the pells, heaven
knows with what connivance (in view of
what is said to have taken place during
the last election) would he not certainly
be another discredit to the word success?
Success can only be worth as much as the
man who carries the attribute, and the
mean successful man, having trodden on so
many to reqch his goal, faces the embar-
rassment of "what can I give to others who
myself have nothing at all?"
Those.responsible for bestowing success
on candidates should be sober & selective
BUT if you consider their salaries and
perks, note that the leaders of the Shoe
Party, the NEW BOURGEOIS, are doing very
well indeed for themselves: their enter-
tainment allowance ($300 a month Whisky
money) alone is more than any underprivi-
leged or poor can earn to feed a family.
Is the recent increase of consumption duties
even on essential commodities in the in-
terest of the real little man?
Sad, but trues people are very forget-
ful and easily fooled. Imagine the
Labour Party has been in powep for over
15 years; they demand another 5 years to
implement policies that should have been
implemented 5-10 years ago. It's fantastic,
it's immoral, and taking advantage of the
gullibility of the truly little people -
the poor and underprivileged in our midst.
WE REGRET that the author of the above
article, like the author of "Fame Facts"
did not sign his name for publication.
