The Old Age
Dear Madam Editor,
Quite a furore
has bena, going on in the press of
late with the question of policemen
an4 their salaries,
And perhaps after reading the
various comments and sifting the
real from the unreal, the chaff from
the wheat, it may not be ont of
place if I add my own.
Down the ages it is a well
known saying "that man is never
satisfied with his lot". The desire to
have abundance and the good things
of this world is innate in the prince
as well as the pauper: except of
course there are few princes yet many
paupers. Th' wisdom of life there'
fore is that while ost of us would
like to have cars, houses, fridges,
and all the usefu' thi-ngs that go
with modern living we should yet re-
tain ourselves to what we may afford
and so live within our means and
enjoy comfort and peace of mind.
But the trouble with mo.t of us
today, no matter how much our
salaries are increased, we soon have
new needs and desires and so the
circle goes round and round and
the cry goes on ad infinitum.
Should we ask ourselves the
question "what do we want in
money paid as salaries or wages to
live?' and ifon this basis we were
to add up all we need, then we may
well find it adds up to the earnings
of a Rockefeller, a Ford or an
Indian Prince. Go gently with the
rise in living which the Labour
Government to its credit has tackled
As toon as there is a rise in the
wages of a section this must of
necessity be counterbalanced by a
rise in the cost of consumer goods
and then overnight the increase
which yoa receive not only disap-
ears, but worse, heavy inroads are
made in the basic pattern as we
knew it upsetting ie spiral curve
which tends to, w' a the fight be-
tween prices and 's.

A fkw last points about
serving wines. White wines should
be served chilled: table wines cant
take two hours in your fridge, sher-
ries not more than half-an-hour.
Red wines in Dominica can stand
twenty minutes ia the fridge before
serving without killing the flavour;
it is always best to uncork a red wine
an hour before serving to let it breathe.
