A DBS (Radio) announcement re-

give m: tf my spelling. is. inaccuraiai
has joined its staff as a Disc
Jockey newscaster. This immediate-
ly brings to mind the, LIAT govern.-
menrtdispute' of a few months ago.
We will recall, that on that occas-
ion the Dominican Goverhment was
insisting that the Antigua-born
Manager of LIAT here in Dominica be
.replaced by a DOMINICAN. How could
that same government tolerate the
appointment .of a non-Dominican as
a Df-J at the "National" Radio
Station? Could it be, that the LIML
experience has led, to some. serious
rethinking in Government quarters,
on the implications of regional
Integration? or .could- it be, that
it is "safer" to employ noh-naition-
als in such a sensitive area as .
broadcasting -- Govt's record on
deportation of "foreigners" who go
"'too far" is well known.

"Well de rain on us," as a shower

Ma Titine looked out the window.
"Seem we're in for a spell...anyway,

"...Reuben deepen wase no' time.

Dominica, Electricity Services
DOMINICA ELECTEICITY SERVICES hereby informs the public that in
accordance with Section 13(1) of the Public Utility Act, Nbo28 of 1972,
it has given notice t' the Public Utility Commission that it proposes
to introduce a fuel surcharge -as from October 28th 1975.
Itie cost of diesel fuel to Dominica Electricity Services has in-
creased.by 150% since the present tariffs were introduced on lst April.
1973; because the price is not known. until the fuel is delivered, it is
impossible to predict .future prices.
The proposed fuel .surcharge will enable Dominica Electricity Serv-QBe
ices, which is not currently c receiin sufficient revenue to cover ex-
penses, to recover the increased cost-ofi the diesel fuel it consumes,
The effect of the increase at the present fuel cost and consumption
on a dorestio consumer would be:-.
