THE GQSPEL -,by "An E.vangelist- (p.1).'
Past happenings in Dominiba,,such
as the burning and destruction of .
New Testaments and other Christian
literature, and the many young people
who have been asked to leave their
homes after professing the evangeli-
cal faith, could also be mentioned,.
but .this article is probably long
enough already. Of course, no-one is
perfect and all of us .make mistakes'
and sometimes have wrong attitudes
which are to be regretted. But `I do
not believe that anyone who stands
in succession to, such mei of ,history
as Martin Luther, John Calvin, John
.Knox, Thomas Cranmer,George Whitfield
John .Wesley and D.L.Moody (all of
whom were evangelical Christians and1
upheld the principles of the Refprm-
atioh) has anything ,to be ashamed
about. Rather, with#the apostle Paul,
we may say "I am not ashamed of the
gospel of Christ,' for it is the power
of God unto salvation to everyone wIn
believes,. But all of us would do
w6ll to remember also Paults teach-
ing that unless s all that we do is
done in a' spirit of charity and love
to all, we -ill .not accomplish any-
th.iAg .for the Lord. ..


HAN1SARD OF THE HOUSE by W. S, Stevens
.(f Lromvp) I have seen the Hansard
of the last House of Assembly meeting.
It clearly indicates that the pro-,
ceedings of the House leave much to-
be desired,
In the first place, the Speakor
(by his frequent butting in when Mem- .
bers of the Opposition are speaking)
pulls down his dignity. .It is the
duty, of a Speaker to interfere only
when it is absolutely necessary But
Speaker Franciis is trueto form; he
makes unbecoming remarks; and iiter-
pretations e-*eg. "the enezly is the
Freedom Party", It is his business
to be patient and tolerant and not
to say "we will not waste any more
time", 'Even if the Member is talking
nonsense, or. saying, anything with,
which he and his Shoe: Party do not
agree, as a Speaker, he should bear
it without showing aby displaesure.
But he.,. the Speaker!, is an elected
member, Editor of the Educator and
holder of a Government.' job besides

LATE views: Minister attacks Go-op BBak
-In a radio speech this-:Friday,,p.m.,
Hon.Vic Riviere, addressing his list-
eners as comrades and saying he was
aiming to protect their interests,cas-
tigated the Dominica Co-operative Bank
We asked for an explanation from Hon.
M.,.Charles. Here it is in'brief:
"The Minister of Finance does not
understand figures, His- statements.
-regarding liquidity are completely
erroneous, as experts-have.proved in
their repor-t -on the Bank. Either he'
does not. understand figure-s, or he
is purposely misleading' -.*
.; The only request made by the
Dominica Co'-operative. Bank. to .the.
Ministry of-Finance was for a 12-
month peiried in which to raise the
necessary, $500,000 capital required '
