Our Premier Mr. Pk:ik John, said
that Lennox Honneychurch was a white
man and all his relatives and friCrds are
white. He mentioned about Mrs. Napier
who was a whitewoman of Pointe Bap-

nothing for Dominica. Mr, Patrick John
mentioned about Mrs. Narodney and
them who are all white people and mem

good points about these white people

from Topic for Today
Merely to rant against mua-
pected malpractice cut very
little ice in fn;, and would
serve no greater purpose In
197 or 1976. The people, re-
grettably. sem to have accept
ed corrupuon-as the Inevitable
concomitant of politics and are
not greatly impressed by the
Sreams for this apparent
uncoonern stem from several.
causes: they are not at all con-
vinced that other available
candidates offer sounder in-
tegrity; the level of corruption
is not considered an unbearabl
burden .- and is even thought
to be a cheap price for good
government (as defined by
them); ad few believe that a
deelgration of assets, to be
followed by frequent checks,
will really achieve anything.
This is not to say that any of
these contentions are tenable.
In fact, there is another, equally
powerful if equally untenable
- to be added. This Is that most
of the electorate may well sup-
port corruption because they
believe that they are enjoying
a share in it proceeds.
They may well believe that
corruption extends beyond the
mere feathering oa politician's
nest to feathering of the
nests of me undeserving, them-
selves. .
It may be as well for us to
examine ourselves to see which,
Sany, of these. submissions
keeps u voting the way we do.
The discovery may not cause us
to switch our loyalties, but at
least t will prevent us from
foog ourselves as to motive.
Our failure to be convinced of
the greater honesty of others
offering to carry on the burden
of government is surely not any
big surprise.' As far as I remem-
ber, no voices of protest were
heard in the legislative chamber
when last parliamentary sala-
ries were raised.
Such Increases have been
given more than once since 1060,
and on each occasion I have
been a nely voice cryidn in the
. wilderness against the principle
of paliamentarian raisin their
own ay.. "Not onef the, as
far as mymemor serve, pu;b
lcly expressed dlsagreemen
with the system of
throughout the year of his as-.
As to.the level of corruption,
undoubtedly this grows in the
telling. T is not to discount
completely its existence. The
signs are too obvious. When,
however, it is noted that some
who should be beneficiaries are
not as free from financial
worries as one would expect,
then there is room for hope.
Certainly, it is dangerous to
draw comparisons from other

As to whether Nyerere's

tance. One thing, I still read of
complaints from Dar-e -Salaam
about government paying for its
officers to stay at expensive
hotels, and, o the reluctance of
the young to participate in the
ftttnm experience when the
bright lights of the city beckon.
Other complaints are at the

promptly recognisable.
Corruption, let me say, is not
solely confined to the taking of
bribes, or the use of fore-know.
ledge to gain business advan-
tage, or the pedllnf of influ.
ence. It is equally the passing
of laws which are themselves
corrupt, lie the four per cent
tax on hotel gross receipts;, and
the selective implementation of
regulations, whereby 'one busi-
nessman or citizen is favoured ,
over another without justifiea-
tion other than political favour-
Itism. -

There is no evidence in any of the
State's newspapers indicating that
there were more than four polling
stations. in the La Plaine Constituency.
However, the result of the-first count
as given over Radio Dominica is as
follows: Poll. Stn. No.l La Plaine
Village Council Office Lab. Free.
Pol.Stt.. 66 110
NM.2-M.Bruney's Res.
Plaisance 68 100
No.3-Boetica Govt.School 55 42
No.4-Delices 62 5
No.5- ? 99 9
N0 ? 73 25
Total. 425 3 292
One .is unable to tell whether the
extra two. polling stations wer.o at
Mr. Dog's or at Mrs. Cat's. home. One
also wonders whether they were :thought,
necessary at the last minute; and if
so why did the Chief Electoral Offi-
Scer did not tell us so among all the,
little nothing he broadcast at the
eleventh hour.
Surely Mr. Joseph must wanv some
one to accuse him of fraud, but ,we
know that he could never be guilty 9f
such an offence.' Moreover, such an
occurence could not be practised so
openly. For all we know there could
be .a subsdqtion under the section pf
the laws governing the selection of
.polling stations making this irregu-
larity perfectly proper and valid.
"The least the citizens of this
country deserves Mr. S.V. Joseph, is

STREAK- A Review / by M. D* Pierre
If we have not got a. touch of
jealousy,-then we remain unambitious,
but what we must guard against is the
yellow eye of jealousy pere we covet
what is not ours and go so far as
even to destroy the other man either
by burning or using other foul means,
Hatred is one of our strongest pass-
ions, ,wo must hate hut only that
which is" ugly a-dnimmoral in the -pex-
son, not the person himself, for if
we hate the person we will not be
able to bestow that christian charity
that is so important to living and
building a society. Again, go s;siping
is part of the culture of a small
society, it cannot be eradicated;
this' is. what helps us to build up our
ego and our image and not be;e t col_
Mq-'gt^ coxjly

STREAK -(concled.)...introverts. One,
will not be convinced of this. until
one goes to a strange country and
feels oneself just a walking mechani-
cal Jane,on the streets,-with no one
bothering. That is why so many
frustrated people go about doing the
most farfetched things simply to get
into the limelight. What should be
rooted out of us is the destructive
form of gossiping where one enjoys
.or brings about the downfall of ano-
ther instead of stretching out a
hand to help him discover himself
again. In the case of selfishnesst,
it is only by loving oneself that
one can love others. But what we
must guard against is the selfish-
ness which makes us that monster
where we trample over the human
rights of others because we want to
have things our way, and when it
does: not suit us, blame others. The
play has put life in a. nutshell as
it exists today and it is left for
us to realise'that it is the sum
total of these digressions that east
their shadows over our society and
retard our progress. The question
that remains-unanswered is what is
each one of us going to do about it.
Mr. Bully must certainly be con-
gratulated for training such a large
cast and getting such excellent per-
formances from them. M.D.P. -

Well, Election is come and gone,
Again Labour Party has won. Congra-
tulations from Government personnel
abroad were numberless, but I don!t,
think we heard so many from our local
bodies. If you ask me, the contest-
ants themselves should have "been the
first to extend 'Good Luck' wishes
to their opponents, the Shoe Party
now wearing the laurels,
I once witnessed an Election issue
celebration in the sister island of
Guadeloupe when Dr. Elene won a land-
slide, victory over Dr, Jazore as
Mayor re-elected. 't the Mairie,
candidates and friends gathere,!,where
handshakes and even kisses from the
enemies (opposing campaigners) took
place. Erom the balcony, the success-
ful Dr. Elene advised the public, (who
after the votes of thanks danced up
and down the streets), that he did
not'want any funeral or other mock-
ery, but that both'losera and winners
must enjoy the evening alike.
