DEATH OF J.M.D. BOUSQUET
An exFederpl MP died in his home island St.
Lucia this week, az.d 60. "Evans" Bousqiuet was
a keen politician and held ministerial posts in St
Lucia after the only W.I. Government failed. He.
had been a Merchant seaman .fighting for Britain
during World War 2 and nearly threw away his'me..
dais when the Federation was let down by Reginald
Maudling and his then UK Govt.
SA redoubtub!e mat in earlier times, memorable
for bulk and brain as well as a generous heart, this
big fighter only got a "semi-state funeral".
Meanwhile this week St. Lucia has
e decided %to "go it alone' to small
island independence. H61as .Bousquet

MY CHRISTMAS MESSAGE
I was somewhat puzzled, like King
David (a mian of God's own heart)
about the death of Dominica: whether
it will ever be resurrected-again.
It then came to my mind that as soon
as Adam fell the promise was made
that the seed. of the woman shall
bruise the serpent's head. The seed
wts made flesh and dwelled among us
as Jesus Christ; He.was then cruci-
fied., He was buried, but He conquer-
ed the grave. He ascended on high
and all' power, was given unto Him. He
then bruised the serpent's head. He
went and led captivity captive.
So,I am comforted to think thatthe
year is coming to an end and it will
not be Ve long before all serpentst
heads .will. be bruised. and Dominica
will be resurrected. Thus. it will
,be peace: on earth and good -will to-
wards men. E.C. LOBLACK

CRICKET WEST INDIES LEVELS SERIES
Australia. suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the West Indies in
the second test match of the 6-match series when they were beaten by an
innings and 87 runs at Perth. This was Australia's worst beating by the
West Indies in 37 matches between the two teams.
Australia's troubles really began when they were dismissed for 529
runs, having lost their remaining three. wickets for the addition of only
12 runs, all to the pace of young Hoijaxi who took all three wickets in
his second over of the morning,anJ the third for the day. First he bowled
Ian Chappell for 156 runs, bowled J.Thompson next ball and after a strong
appeal for leg before for his hattrickywas disallowed, three balls later
he bowled the same batsman, A.Mallet, for no score. Holding finished
with 4/88. *** Skipper Clive Lloyd sprung a surprise against the Austra-
lians when he partnered Fredericks with Bernard Julien to open the innings
and when Julien was dropped in the first over of the West Indies innings,
after having faced only two balls, the Australians paid dearly for that
miss. The pair put on 91 in 8 overs before Julien went for 25. Roy
Fredericks batted at his brilliant best in scoring a chanceless century.
He was eventually dismissed for 169 scored in 212 minutes and included 27
fours and one 6. Clive Lloyd continued from where Fredericks left off and
pounded the Australians for 149 runs including 22 fours and one 6. With
Deryck Murray (63), the pair put on 164 runs for the 5th wicket. Alvin
Kallicharan, who had to retire after a ball struck him in the face, scored
57 and when the end came, West Indies 585 scored in 425 minutes, Keith
Boyce was-not out 49. All the Australian bowlers suffered heavily. Thomp-
son 3/128, M.Walker 2/99, G.Gilmore. 2/103, Lillee 2/125 and Mallet 0/103.
Australia in their second innings were unable to cope with the pace of
Andy Roberts (7/54 and match figures of 9/119) and crumbled for a meagre
169. .Bernard Julien got -the. other 5 wickets for 32 runs.

that the British Government is scrutinising how money for road maintenance
