S 0 L O'D A 'R I T Y (fr.pl)
See what is happening now: the
islands are' breaking their financial
promises to TTI, and the medical fac-
ulty is breaking, down through lack Cf
support, while Dr.Eric Williams talks
of creating Trinidad's own faculty of
medical studies at Sti AugustinegAnd
this after all the fine work done in
far-flung campuses (Mona$ St.Augus-.
tine and Cave Hill) and the various
Extra Mural Departments.Once all the
fragments were part of a: solid whole.
Now they are splitting off like atoms
This week there has been a serious
meeting on the future of CARICOM.As
staunch Federalists we put political
unity before trade affiliations, but.
The Star never spoke up against' CAR-
ICOM, feeling as we did .(though dab.ib
fu'). that- since 'the great early at-
tempt at unity failed through solo-
darity selfishness, a new approach
should be given a chance, with all
its t- ade fairs, beauty queens, con-
ferences, 'muddles and so forth.
And it is no good to blame the
cracks oAi big-island greed alone*All
',he islands suffer from the craving
to go it alone scamper off in search
o'fforeign funds, have independence
at any price and without reference to'
the will of. the people regarding the
timing of this event,
-The. Federal ships are almost a mem-
ory already. The zeal of CADDRIt,has
been quenched in the regional, unions,
which have (with the possible excep-
tion of DA1U) 'adopted the solo little:
kingdom faith, fawning on the rulers,
But perhaps the time's are entirely
out of joint., How can we blame West-
indians for wanting .to be soloists
rather than choristers when after-
hundreds bof years of association,Wales
and Scotland opt to reject unity
'with England? .How ridiculous

'Paul Kaye'of New York (doubtless a

The Caribbean Federation for mental
Health is scheduled to meet in Dom-
inica, July 1976. Plans for this
important get-together will be dis-
cussed' at D.A.M.H,.s annual general -
meeting (8 p.m. on Thursday April 29)
at the Social 'Centre. irs. Elaine
Pringle, President, will open the
session, and there will be a feature
talk by Dr. Royer or M rs. Goode.All
interested persons are welcome,

SIR HAROLD WILSON, K,.9
H.M. the Queen has bestowed/on, the
retired British Prime Minister Hac-
old Wilson the signal decoration of
Knight of the Garter:" there are on3y
24 holders of the order at p-ny time.
Sir Winston Churchill was one in his
day., The Queen and the Duke of 'Ed-
inburgh will pay a State visit to
Finland at the end of May.


A'BIBLICAL MESSAGE ON SOLIDARITY
Mr, E.C.Loblack writes: The Almighty
has sent us a message by Prophet
Isaiah which I consider good for our
Solidarity Year. It is contained in
the Book of the Prophet Isaiah,Chap-
ter I, verses 12 20. Verse 12 be-
gins the quotations: "When ye come to
appear before me, who hath required
this at your hand, to tread -my certs?
13. Bring me no more vain oblations'
incense is an abomination unto me;the
new moons and sabbaths, the ca'lingk
of assemblies, -I cannot away with; it
is -iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14. Your new moons and your appointed
feasts my soul hatethl; they are a
trouble unto me; I am weary to he hlem.
.15 And when ye 'spread forth your
'hands I will hide mine eyes from you4
yesj when ye make many prayers,I will
not hear; your hands are full of 1ad."
Verses 16-20 are equally relevant,
and Mr. Loblack advises our readers
to study .them caie'fully. He adds:'
"Now how many of "us will hearken
and comply with this message for the
future welfare of Dominica?"

THAT NOLLE PROSEQUI
Since the 'Camella Francis affidav-
it nothing seems to have caused our
readers more. indignation than the
