only lasted for three weeks. When.
one sees the danger and health ha-
zards which exist at the. cemetery
and ~teSo our grave-diggers it
is expedient that the authorities,,
concerned take the appropriate steps
to alleviate an unwarranted problem.
In the 1960s a man s grave would be
unearthed after nine years; today
it qnly takes 3-5 years. Hairy
skulls are being dug up due to the
spaceless problem and as a result:

is costly to operate. Barbados'
tried cremation and. had to give it
up due to operation costs. The on3y

to go ahead with the proposed .and- 1

CANDID COMMENTS by W,S.Stevens
In a letter of 3rd April, 1974,
addressed to me as President of the
Dominica Farmers Union, Mr.Joffre-
J.Robinson, .Executive. Chairman of
the Banana Management Committee
wrote as follows: "The Management '
Committee has always and will con-
tinue to pay the maximum price pos-'
sible to the grower depending on
the'Green Market Price prevailing
in the United Kingdom Market at the
time, -i -d the -current cost of pur-
chasing and processing bananas for
SIn the- face of such -a statement
what right has; the Government and
its Banana Management Committe to
reverse their policy and keep back-
part of the price to the- grower on.
the big-stick grounds that the part
kept back is for improvement of the

THE CDC AND TEM LAW
The outside world is now asking
whether Dominica still has people
alive. Because, Anguilla,a handful
of people, only 6000, stood on their
feet and. broke the yoke of St.Kitts'
oppressive measures. I understand
little .Nevis may do the same thing,
; Dominica is the third largest
island in the British West Indies;'
yet we Dominicans make ourselves like
jelly-fish, as if we have no bones
in our spine, From the. time Lebl.nc
took the reins of Government, we
have been.oppressed, depressed and
suppressed, yet we enjoy all this
by saying: "God" iS good! God is
Every day you go to the CDC off-
ice, you find people crying about
the. amounts they have to pay for
.electricity. They complain to me
and I went to find,out the reason
for that', I was -informed that then
CDC bills leave their office, -you
must pay that very day. You have
not received the bill, you do not
know the amount, thereforeyou can't
pay; yet when you do-get the bill
many days after it has left the
office you are charged with arrears.
But the Laws of Dominica provides
the provision which reads as fol-
lows: -Cap 257 No1l Electricity
Rules --Vol. VI p. :1509.
Rule 5. A' Acounts when payable
The consumer shall ,pay for electri-
city supplied within seven days
'after the day on which he has re-
ceived the account therefore.
I hope that the Attorney General
will use his good-office to see to
it that CDC complies with the' law.,
STurning now to the recent legis-
lation on house rates, people who
will not omply with- the law will'
have to pay 750 or three months
in prison or both fine, and confine,:
The law -annot be applied to only
one set of people,, Perhaps accord-
ing to the house rates,--owners of.
houses may hayve to go and live on
the. sea, and those who cannot swia
will perish miserably. That' is how
the. Leblanc Labour Party loves the
people of Dominica who put them
in power. -- .C. LOBLACK
