The Fatherly
Priest

GROSSETO, Italy, March 2
W H E N a middle-agec
Roman Catholic priest, Dot
Zeno Saltini, went to Lon
don 14 years ago, he spok
about one thing: Nomadel
p h i a, his struggling comr
munity of i,oco crphans a
Fossoli, near Modena, Ita!)
It was their, and is now
one of the m o s t militant
Communist zones in Italy.

Neglected Children

In 1949, Nomadelphia wa
on the verge of collapse. Dot
Zeno had founder it there
years previously on the sit
of an abandoned Germar
concentration camp where
5oo Jews and many Britisi
soldiers died.
After escaping frorr
Fascism, with a price on his
head, and living with
escaped war prisoners, Il
turned up one day with a
crowd of orphans and a
small band, piled on top o:
a truck full of bedding
Against Government orders
he led the children intoctht
camp, took it over, begge7
money, and began the tirs
Nomadelphia.
People called him "the
mad priest of Nomadelphia,"
but by 1949 there were ovei
,000o children there, under
the care of young volunteer
"m other s," 17 assiscani
priests, with 3,000 more
uncared-for children waiting
to be admitted. Don Zenc
was heavily in debt.
He went into voluntary
liquidation. "Creditors can
w a i t," he said, "children
can't."

The Helpful Architect
He dispersed the children, among
friends, sought and received permis-
sion to become a la y m a n (thus
renouncing further help fr o m his
priests, who were recalled) a nd,
together with a young architect,
Danilo Dolci, moved too mi le s
south to the countryside surrounding
Grosseto.
Here Dolci, then Don Z e n o's
most ardent disciple, c o e c t e d
orphans and unemployed men, and
designed and began building a new
Nomadelphia. This t oo was
doomed. When credit r a n o u t
again, Nomadelphia II was le ft
half-finished, Dolci left for Sicily,
to begin his own individualistic
social reforms, and Don Zeno started
again from scratch.
Friends gave him 400 a c r e s of
Tuscan valley scrub, directly under-
lying Dolci's half-finished city: and
it is here, five milesfrom the Grosseto
coast, that the anew Nomadelphia
now flourishes.


Ayear ago Don Z e no was
reordained, ind said his se c o n d
"first Mass," Orphans he had helped
since 1931, when he spent the whole
of the inheritance it had taken his
father 24 years to acquire, on an
orphans' I ome, c.me fiom all over
Europe to receive his blessing.
Nomadelphia his 30 family
groups whose "mothers" are bring-
ing up over 20 children, society's
unwantedds' They have built the
place themselves by mass manual
labour, from the bush and with
the help of some p ivate and some
diocesan conat:ons they have built
roads, prefabs, a cattle and poultry
farm, a church, a school, carpentry
and photographic studios, and two
small factories. Next month they
start on an irrigation dam.
Everything is self-supporting
Money is rarely used Apart from
two hours' daily schooling for the
children and aU hour's :lllura,
with the fiery 62-year-old Don
Zeno in the chair, n-thing is corn
pulsory.
Brotherhood
The name Nomadelphi. miLi,
"where fratern ty is law."
The indications are that o.d e
villages may seek to follow Moneo'r-
saio's lead. "Nomadelphia isn't an
end in itself,' Don Zeno say. ',Thert
are still some 2oo,ooo uncared lor
children in Italy. I want the sprit
of Nomadelphia to spread and spread
and go on spreading. And it will."

"SO THEY SAY--"

BY BOB &RAY

Have you ev:r heard people say: "We want o u t s i d e investors to
come to Dominica but we don't want any charge.'? Usually r l ec s e
people who say such things are the "old-line' famdiies who a r e lo ng-time
gov, rmeni servants or ret:red civil servants. Most of them are comfortably
fixed financially and have estates that produc- a certain income for t h e m.
They never were in trade or industry and never really had to use their own
brain power to tarn a living They like Dominica just the way it is: great
poverty among most of the people, shockingly nigh illiteracy ., part cularly
amongst our agricultural workers, the backbone of our economy; s i m p 1 e
pleasures, almost no entertainment facilities; miserable sanitation; the old
carry-your-water-:home-in-a-bucket way of life.
In the first place, it would take King Solomon to determine w h i c h
coins first: enlightened people or large investments. And either o f these
two social forces are going to bring about change. M o n e y is invested,
usua.ly, where there are resources "natural resources''. And people
are resources. When the catalyst of investment funds are added to "'natural
resources", tii-:e is bound toi be change. Cnange in the 1 u o o o t n e
countryside when they drill for oil, mine for bauxite, cut timber for plywood,
yes. scrape off the pumice Dominica has in such abundance. And t h e
people, now, do they change. A living wage, full employment A re
you kidding, man . that will change everything. But the thing it will
change the most will be the very fellows who don't want change. Gone
wil be their smug little existence. They won't bL able to hire some poor
family to gather in the coconuts for a dollar a day, That cczy, secure feel-
log tney have wil be in jeopardy as they watch their once poor, ignorant
ne ghoou.s install inside plumbing, decently clothe their children a n d
educate every one. Ee-ause witr the investment that means jobs, steady
pay, decent pay, for hundreds of Dominicans will lifi these downtrodden
folk up to and beyond the level of the self-satisfied bigot who says: "We
would like to see foreigners come in and invest their money b ut w e
don't want any change . !"
Aristocrats or would-be aristocrats die out very slowly in the Wet
Indies. They are a big fiog in a small puddle and they like it that way
-- and they are going to keep it that way -- if they possibly caii. So
vhenipeople tell you they would like to see outside investors ,come to
Domibca, don't believe them! They don't really mean this. They are
frightened of th: thought of losing their status in a rising tide of prosperity.
As it is now, they are the ones with the comfortable homes, the big cars,
r -iiterr u e d. ilaway Lic" ly CiarngLurii 'A old fit -ind nUul
expansion ever reached Dominica, these people would be threatened and
their present high-by-comparison standard of living would topple as more
and more Dominicans reached their standard.
So, dear hard-working reader, beware the g vernment pensioner who
tells you in a very patronizing way: "I would like to see someone come
to Dominica and build a large coconut oil factory.. make soap and mar-
garine, and give dozens of people good jobs." He doesn't mean this at all.
Or he might say; "Yes, a nice modern canning plant for pineapple and
concentrated orange juice is what we need!" Lip service!
Such a canning plant would cost at least $1oo,ooo (Martinique has
one that cost U-S. investors over one million dollars) and when this kind
of money is spent there is one thing certain: there is going to be a change,
It's impossible to erect a modern factory in an old-fashioned, backward
place and have that place remain old-fashioned and backward! But in our
case, those Aristocrats who want Dominica to remain as it is will do their
level best to keep out modern investors. In their own subtle ways they
will discourage the would-be investors with slow, time-worn methods that
defy the true axiom "Time Is Money.' The dragging out of months
into years for the new investor to obtain the much-talked-about-seldom-
granted Pioneer Status; the dragging out of weeks into months, months
nto years for our "foreign investor" to obtain his "Alien's Landholders'
License." The delays and 'pass backs' at Customs to import the simple
necess.nes prior to making an investment in Dominica would discourage
the hard est investor and send him screaming from our shores!
And the legal counsel available in Dominica for our would-be in-
vestor! In the first place the laws are hopelessly out-of-date so that what
a barrister in London or Toronto might tell his client would be worthless
advice when applied to the laws in force here. Take the Real Estate law
as one example: England changed their real estate laws drastically from
the 1912 law to the 1925 law. Dominica still has the 1912 law which
has cute little snags in it to trap the modern businessman!
Now, dear friend our Aristocratic land owning families in high places
will see to it that NO new investments are made in Dominica- by outsiders!
The status quo MUST be preserved and the large mass of the population
MUST be kept in ignorance and poverty so long as our Aristocrats live.
When they die, now, you can look for a change. In fifteen or twenty
years most of those people holding Dominica in a vice-grip will have pass-
ed away. Changes will come, then slowly. ... So they say!
We cannot agree with some of the views or expressions printed
above and are sure they will irritate many readers. We invite comments.

ming country -- the Unted King-
dom recently ratified the Inter-
national Coffee Agreement. The
U n i t e d Kingdom ratification,
received by the Secretary General of
UN on 25 April, brought to 27 the
total of exporting and importing
countries that have ratified the
Agreement or expressed their inten-
ion to do so.
So far, z2 exporting countries,
representing 80.5 per cent o f total
exports, have ratified it or signified
their intention to ratify. This meets
the stipulation that the Agreement
will come into force when ratifications
are received from 20 exForters repre-
senting 80 per cent of total world
exports of coffee.
The Agreement needs, in addition,
ratifications from io consumer count-
ries account ng for 80 per cent of
world imports of coffee and so far
six importing countries with zo per
cent of the total has done so.

Back came the reply for
which I was least prepared:
"Till you get that someone
you were talking of yester-
day." I knew I was caught
and there was no way out.
T h a t whole day in the
factory I was lost in thought.
There must be some way of
getting an expert to s h o w
the wife"how to cook an egg."
I checked on the grievance

"Ah! so you wish to

I stopped him quick. His
powers of deduction had
taken the wrong track.


"Subbu, it has nothing to
do with babies. It is some-
thing to do with eggs....."
"About Xi Ah, so i: is a
mystery? Tell me who on
earth is this Xe"
"Eggs, Subl!u, Eggs, Eggs! You
know the white rounii things that

Subbu was a little hurt. "Of
course eggs I know eggs - But
what has your wife to do with lay-
ing eggs?"
Subbu's thinking was so fast that
he always shot well ahead of the pro-
blem and missed it, But he was
the only help I could get in this
wife-wicked world. So w.th great
patience and ignoring his frequent
interruptions, I related the whole
story. How, djy afte: day, I had
to wait for my wife to cook the two
eggs, how she always served them
after the factory hooter went and
how fast I was approaching the day
when the wrath of the foreman
would descend on me far breaking
clause 4 (a) ii of the Standing Or-
ders.
As Subbu stood there with eyes
halfc'osed and deep in thought, I
knew that he was at last seized of
the problem then he pronounced the
judgement. "W h at you need,
brother is a work-study right in
your home, in your kitchen! And


I am the man who will do it."
Workstudy wa. fixed for Sunday
morning. Sunday used to be holi-
days, remember? On the stroke of
eight there was a knock on the
door and before I opened it, I knew
who it wa Subbu was a picture of
efficiency. He had a cardboard
holder with a paper clipped on, a
stop warch that he had borrowed
from somewhere in one hand and he
even had a key chain dangling from
the waist like a real Chief Industrial
Engineer.
I briefly introduced 3ubbu to my
wife. I said this was the chap I was
talk ng about and who would put
an end to the growing rift between
us, She took one good look at
Subbu and asked him if he was a
cook.
Subbu was outraged. He pull-
ed himself to his full height of five
feet four and spoke from the side of
his mouth "Madam, I am no cook
-- I am iromr In.lustria! Engineer
ing. My line is work. Yo show
me how you do a job and I'll show
you how to do it better. And be
fore I am through, your productivity
will be up by 40 per cent "
With these great words, Subbu
got down to his job. He made a
sketch of the living room and the
kitchen. He asked my wife how
she cooked eggs and took elaborate
notes. He saw the raw materials

and the tools - and then he got
down to the Great Demonstration.
He explained t, my wife that all
the needed things should be close at
hind. This was no trouble because
from any point in the kitchen all
the four wall were within reach.
Then Subbu enui c aced Principle
No. 2. The work path of opera-
tors should not cross This was
not difficult either because there was
only one operator and as for me I
was en'y a consumer.
The first operationn was lighting
the stove. Here Subbu enunciated
Principle No 3. Cut waiting time.
He put the pan on the stove, lit the
burner and before it could even get
warm started the most vigorous
pumping I had never seen. I was
keeping the stop watch. I do not
know how long Subou would have
kept up the pressure, but at 54 se-
conds, an enormous spout of burn-
ing kerosene shot out as from a
flame thrower.
My wife screamed and the effi-
ciency expert shot out of the house
like greased lightening.
It took me fully five minutes to
battle the fire, at the end of which
the place smelt like an oil refinery
and everything in sight was covered
by a film of protective paraffin. On

W E have been reading the report of the
Fiscal Commissioner, Mrs. Ursula
K. Hicks, on economic outlook and
planning for the new Federation of East
Caribbean Territories. It is full of inte-
resting passages, and will be reviewed in a
future issue of this newspaper. We shall
deal here with one of her specific recom-
,mendations (No. o1 ii the Summary):-
"That steps should quickly be taken to
introduce effective taxes on real property
in the islands." (Paragraph so8.)
Dominica has no tax on real estate,
other than in her two major towns: in
other words, we are a West Indian island
devoid of land tax. Even St. Lucia,
still in the grip of the Code Napoleon,
instituted a graded land tax a few years
back. What is it that has made our
politicians, legislators and administrative
people so afraid of land tax? They
a... avs raise the excuse: it is loo difficult.
The fact is that they are afraid of losing
support by instituting this normal, world-
wide and essential method of raising funds
for the upkeep of the country. Moreover,
the question oftitles and family division
of property is in a shocking muddle in
Dominica, enough to put off potential
reforms on grounds of time, trouble and
surveys involved. Yet it will have to be
done some day. The other islands in the
new Federation will not be content to
carry Dominica on their backs, land-
taxless, while they play a proper part in
raising revenue.
Why are the politicians so nervous.
They are afraid of alienating the little man,
and of the propaganda of their opponents.
Yet if they would absolve the small land-
owner who has only five acres or under
from paying land tax, or charge only a
token fee such as that inaugurated by a
Labour Government in St. Lucia -- say
25 cents an acre up to ftve acres the
majority of the people of this island would
not suffer at all; and the upgrading could

POETS CORNER
The Politicians
From this small hill I hear the mumblers quarr
And the knife-sharpening politician cliques;
I peer at them through the suburban sorrel
Watching the jealous flushes on their cheeks.
Word against word, they devil and defile
The prowess and attainment of the rival,
Pursuing the authoritative mile,
But falling back to grudge a friend's survival.
Steeped in the least magnanimous of arts
They even spurn its liberality,
And jettison the human in their hearts
Till their names wilt, debased by jealousy.

be done in the most humane manner, tak-
ing into account the size of the "estate"
and its production potential. In other
words, the larger the estate, the higher the
tax (within reasonable proportions); and in
our view land that is allowed to waste and
remains uncultivated should be taxed
more highly than any other acreage.
This would oblige landowners to cultivate
their lands or to let others do so.
An official report on Dominica's land
situation tells us that over 50 per cent of
privately owned land (that is to say, estates
over 1oo acres) are in the hands of 57 fam-
ilies or companies.
Let us grant that there are obstacles:
but they are not insuperable. A s t a r t
could be made by taxing land to which
the title is clear, and in cases of doubt,
urging the alleged owners to clarify their
:position. That means the Government
co u 1 d start by taxing the bigger land-
owners right away after necessary legis-
lation had been passed. If the ordinary
man and vWoman had a proper explana-
tion of how much they would gain by
supporting the principle of land tax, and
how much they would stand to lose by
living for e v e r in a higgledy-piggledy
debt-ridden grant-aided condition, we
believe they would come out strongly in
favour of land tax rather than any tax
affecting their production, or crafty indi-
rect taxes which send up the cost of
living.
Prosperous little Barbados has had land
tax for a long while and it has produced
a substantial yearly sum for her coffers;
she has long criticised those islands which
h a v e hung back from taking effective
action. We do not believe that an en-
lightened Dominica Government should
wait to do some essential legislative deed
until bombarded by reproaches or pres-
sure. We should do it soon, of our own
free will, and in the most equitable and
reasonable manner.

Thoughts By A
West Indian

Sir, Please explain to me why
we West Indians suffer so much
from inferiority complex and are
always talking about the days of
slavery which are over a hundred
years behind us? Slavery has been
suffered by many nations in the past
and indeed some nations today keep
their people in almost slave-like
conditions. We in the West Indies
have made rapid progress so why
bring up the dark past? With our
progress we seem to think that we
are self sufficient and no longer need
the help of overseas technicians or
any one from the more advanced,
countries except of course the tourist
who is willing to come and be over-
charged whenever possible for what
we have to offer him! West In-
dians have lately become very sensi-

Low Educational
Standards

Dear Editor, The purpose of
the writer is not to single out any
institution, but with the hope that
the authorities concerned will take
notice that present standards of edu-
cation are sorely lacking in all di-
rections It is known that Princi-
pals of the various schools are try-
ing their best under most adverse
circumstances, due to which, disc-
ipline and scholastic attainment is
at a low level.
I believe that it is time that the
Minister for Social Services try to
co-operate with the Education Offi-
cer and all Heads of schools in
meeting their needs. The latter are
all of high educational standard and
he should have no hesitation in sit-
ting together with them at conferences
and discussing their particular prob.
lems and needs for their respective
schools and plans for the future

Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Girls & Boys, -I hope you spent a very pleasant holiday. I sup-
pose you were too busy enjoying yourselves and had no time to spare for
me, I am still awaiting letters from you all. I want to hear from all of you.
Its a funny feeling putting forth ones ideas and not quite certain what others
think about them. That is why there are questions and discussions after a
talk.
Y,.u may have something to criticise-- I would be glad to hear about
it. I. is surprise ng when we listen to others what new ideas we find; we
had never thou ht of them before, You may have suggestions to make too,
that would be of great benefit to me and to others. One cm never be too
old to learn.
As an example not very long ago an intelligent young man made the
remark "It's a blessed thing that Trinicadand Jamaica broke up the Federa-
tion". I was horrified to hear such a remark but when he explained how
they would have forced us into independence long before we were prepared
for it, I saw his point of view and agreed with him whole-heartedly.
Now I hope I shall hear from you all. El e I shall be forced to come
to the conclusion that you are not interested and you shall not hear from
me again.
Here's wishing you best wishes for a very successful school term.
Loe from,
Auntie Fran.

ft must be remembered that all, ulti-
mately, are looking after the figure of
the children of Dominica, and the
broad structure of education must be
framed bearing t h e s e needs in
min d.
At present one ofth: great bug-
beirs is a shortage of qualified teach-
er, in our secondary schools as well.
Pupil teachers are used and by rea-
sons of their lack of sufficient quali-
'ication, experience a nd maturity
contribute greatly to careless habits
ot the pupils, indiscipline and
lowering of a:tainment, and, in short,
undermine their pupils.
The employment of pupil teachers
at a low salary and saving money on
them for other purposes however
worthwhile is a retrogressive step in
tra ,y ways.
Low standards are at the rot of
the West Indian problems Mercan-
tile a nd Government institutions
later employ these same pupils and it
is not surprising that even those with
superior intelligence a re untidy,
careless and undisciplined, and hence
the work suffers as also do human
relations,
While Rome was not built in a
day I believe that these problems
have been exaggerated by interference
and lack of cohesive purpose and
co-operation by these responsible for
education in Dominia.
'In relation to all this I must bring
to memory men like Mr. Skinner
who left an indelible stamp on their
mpviil-swho-todaV. are som--of-hc-
leading men on the West Indian
scene and who have in them all those
qualities admired and respected by
the rest of the world.
Thanking you for the kind, use of

Portsmouth As
I See It

Dear Sir,
Sometime last year I saw
His Honour the Administrator in-
specting a contingent of volunteers
belonging to the Fire Brigade branch.
I said I am satisfied because
His Honour is the Head of that im-
portant Department, and most of all
he is no stranger to Portsmonth; but
up to this time I am left wondering
when will he be so kind as to give
o:ders to the Fire Chief to carry out
a survey on building a proper Fire
Station in the town of Portsmouth,
which is now covered with gasoline
stations and electricity, It is said
"Fire is a good servant, but a bad
master".
Portsmonth as I see it is making
good progress, and I am looking to-
wards His Honour's administration
in the field of safety. For it is
written, "one ounce of precaution is
better than one pound of cure".
His Honour may remember that
nearly all the houses in the town and
surrounding area are built of wood;
that in itself can prove to everybody
what can happed in case of a ma-
jor fire. As I see it "Too LATE"
would be the cry!
Yours truly,
EMANUEL MARTIN, Portsmouth

In that infamous litter
the 'writer behind the writer'
has once again tried in vain
to justify 'his' egoism as also
'his' likeness and anxiety
for revenge, by using a
number of extracts from the
report of the Commission of
Enquiry, most of which are
used 'out of context' for the
sole effect of making the
Mayor Dominica's singular
martyr of the 19th century.
The sponsor has also tr ied to
give some isolated promin-
ence and praise to Dr. Watty
for suggesting that the busi-
ness of the Roseau Town
Council be enquired into.
Whilst this is true to some
extent, I am confident that
Dr. Watty has neither
sought nor desires any such
praise for himself.
This is particularly ob-

not given a thought to the
expressed concert of effort

A recent release from the
Roseau Town Council warn-
ed residents of Rosean,
particularly in King George
V Street, Queen Mary Street
Bath Road and Virgin Lane,
that owing to the dry sea-
son, water pressure has been
considerably reduced, and it
may be impossible to use two
taps in one house at once.
Residents in Roseau are
urged to exercise the utmost
economy and consideration
for others in their daily use
of water throughout the dry
spell.
In his message, the Town
Clerk thanked W. H. O. on
behalf of the R T. C. for


their efforts to bring a sati

Rest Show's Up Islands
Weaknesses

The 3 3da y match between the
Island XI and the Rest was coln-
cluded at the Botanical Gardens on
Sunday. Reuming at 57 tor 7,
the Island XI was all out lor 177,
a deficit of 34 runs. The Islands
bowling lacked penetration when the
Kcst oatted a second time, only St.
Hllaire looked impressive. Steady
battng enabled the Rest to compile
IS6. Grell scored a sound 40.
The Island were thus set to score
221 runs for victory. The innings
was higlthghted oy a powetul
knock ot 90 by Irving Shllinglord
and a crowd pleasing 33 by Clem
John. John shovec a welcome ie-
turn to form, but his dimissal was
due to a lapse 11 concentration.
Shillingord as usual displayed an
airt of authority about his batting.
An innings by this lad gives one the
impression that it is all planned
before he even leaves the pavillion.
His timing and power ofstioke are
unsurpassed in the history ot our
cricket. I predict a big future for
this young man if g-ven the chance.
The Rest were without two key
bowlers in Ren6 and Joseph John,
but still succeeded in exposing the
weakness of the Island's middle batt-
ing. From 180 for 4, they slumped
to o2 for 8, and eventually
scrambled home by i wicket.
Celaae again troubled all and sundry,
and exacted more lhf from the
---piecn-ian tin-rs -itead- iptooni.ih.
Grell, Corrlete and Sylvester tall
bitsinen) were allowed to return
good bowling figures.
The Manager picked to go to
Grenada with the Dominica Team
for the Goodwill series is Clifford
Seven, He has h ad previous
experience and is reputed to be a
stern disciplinarian.
I am indeed sorry to learn that
St. Lucia is not sending a team to
Grenada this year due to financial
stringency, They are hoping that
the winning team this year will be
able to call n and play a match
there after the series.
Opening Fixture Drawn
In their opening first class match
the West Indies touring team was
held to a draw by Worcester in a
game of declarations. The final
scores w e r e:- Worcester Ig9.
Graveny 75 and 162 for 4 declar-
ed; West Indies 120 for 2 declared
and 55 for 3.
Gloucestershire Beaten
On Saturday, Monday and Tues-
day, West Indies beat Gloucester-
shire by 65 runs. Batting first on
a green wicket, the tourists were
hustled out for 89, David Smith got
5 for 38 for the hometeam
Gloucestershire batsmen found runs
even more difflult to get than the
visitors and were all out for 60.
The West Indies fast bowler Griffith
was at his best, getting 8 for 23.
In their 2nd innings, the visitors
showed m o r e determination and
were all for 2So. Smith again cap-
ture 5 wickets, bringing this match
analysis to o1 for 98. C h a s i n g
280 for victory Gloucestershire
never loo k e d like reaching their
target, and were dismissed for 214


of which Young scored a well played
126. Griffith this time captured
13 for 35 to return match ligur-:s of
53 for 58, the best of his career.
University Bowling Thrashed
On an easy paced Fenners w ck
et, Wea t Indies amassed the high
total of 514 against Cambridge
University on Wednesday. Leading
the way in this run getting spree
was Kanbai (119) and fast bowler
Hall (102 not out). Hunt (96)
and Butcher (83) wee also among
the tuns. Hall's century was the first
of his career.
On Thursday, t h e University
were bowed out twice for scores of
104 and 205 to give the West Indles
victory by an innings and 205 runs.

The sponsor seems unable
to reconcile himself with the
present composition of the
Roseau Town Council and
consequently blames the
Dominica United People's
Party for the trust that the
electorate has so lavishly
reposed in them; since this
seems to be the only way in
which they in chagrin over
the 'five-love' results of
the last municipal election,
which was held in the cons-
tituencies of the two leading
Ministers, of the L a b o u r
Government.
I must therefore take this opport-
unity to remind the Dominica La
bour Party that irrespective of what
they write, do, or say, the truth is
that the taxpayers no longer want
them at the head of anything; and
this is becoming more and more so.
They also need to be reminded of
all the petty practices which they
employed in their vain effort to take
over the Roseau Town Council.
First there was the high handed
manner of their amendment to the
Roseau Town Council constitution
to introduce Adult Suffrage. Then
there was their refusal to grant per-
mission to the Roseau Town Coun-
cil for running a sweepstake.
(Today Government has resolved
t o grant this permission t o private
clubs.)
There was also Government's re-
fusal to approve a suggested am-
mendment by the Roseau Town


report, endeaouting to give as
different meaning t o t h e
"Mayor's uncalled for med-
dling in staff matters"." The
very page 8 continues ". ....
There are serious defects in
the system of organization and
the mayor was quite right
when he drew attention to
them and called for their
remedy. . .
The Government of today, must
learn to accept the WILL OF THE
PEOPLE not only when it happens
to be in their favour, but also when
it is expressedly against them.

The fact is that Mabel James has
