BOIL .YOUR -.DRMNKING WATER,
Citizens of 'Dominica.
THERE IS TYPHOID IN THIS -ISLAM)
Some of you may have heard over
Radio Big A that a Trinidad.Doctor
had stated that there.;was an out-
break, f typhoid in two Dominican
villages. We can tell you where :
Cpulibistrie and Dublanc. He said
there were 19 cases; earlier we had
heard of 25, and of two deaths.
The Government has not released
any precautionary instructions to
the populace; doubtless for fear of
worrying potential tourists. But
we say that :typhoid is a'killer and
a serious disease, and. feel it ~ -
duty to tell/what we know.
There is, to our knowledge, no
anti-typhoid vaccine in Dominica.
The outbreak started in Coulibis-
trie, We understand that there has
only been one Roseau case.
All we hear is that "public health
measures are being considered"; but
we also heard that an employe,at a
water plant was one of the afflicted.
May we suggest these simple precau-
tiens:- boil all your drinking
water.. Wash your hands, and see
that your children wash their hands,
especially after going to the toilet
or lavatory. Guard all your food
against flies. Boil all fresh milk.
Typhoid is nothing new to Domin-
ice. In fact,. there ,re said to be
' few cases every year." But now,
in the Christmas season, when people
become a littlecaerefree, it is time
to take a little more care -- for
your health's sake.

The death occurred this week of
Miss Winnie Royer :of virgin Lane,
who was. described to us'in the

a brother, Mr. Ninian Royer, and
many grieving nephews and nieces.
This lady'was kind and charit-

spiritual and practical aid. All
those who were frequent visitors

SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE R.E.A.
One of the pleasures of this Christ-
mas season was the concert at the
Convent High school auditorium in
aid of the Infirmary, Some 200 tic-
kets were sold but about 50 of the
buyers thought, better of going out
on a blustering wet Friday night --
and missed a great treat.
The major classical part of the
concert was ably carried by the
Woodwind Quintet (Leader Deborah
Dutton, flute, with Cecil Bellnt,
flute, Clay Weekes, trumpet, Eustace
Butler and Herman Daway, clarinets.
Carmel Agar's repertoire of songs
ranging from Mozar& through Godard
and a spiritual topop, received the
most applause whilst Graham Jones'
baritoneboomed out the Edwardian
lovesong "Because" and "Mary had a
I found my greatest pleasure in a
duet played by Leng Sorhaindo (piano)'
and Deberah Dutton (flute) -Handel's
Sonata No. 1. This was a true tour
de force. The Woodwind QuintetTop-
ened the concert with an arrangement
of Haydn's Andante movement from the,
"Surprise" symphony, then another
Haydn piece and, (very successful) a
Mozart Divertimento. After' the in-
termission a modern Divertimento by
Alan Hovhaness intrigued with an
esoteric prelude, a strictly executed
Canon and a charming and interesting
The concert ended with the Quintet
accompanying the audience in a terri-
fic burst of carol singing.
Education Minister Christian hum-
orously compared the concert at a
moment's notice and it seems that the
infirmary inmates should have a fine
Christmas thanks to the organising
powers of several imaginative and
dedicated ladies, one of whom appeal-
ed to the audience to visit the Infir-
mary and see how things were there.
MASSA DAY DOt? IMPOSSIBLE'.
These three words are some-
times used in the House of Assem-
bly and otherwise by our leaders
of the State.
I am not at all competent to
expound or interpret the holy
scriptures as some of them who use
the scriptures pretty often;they
seem ready at any time to lay down
their uniform and put on some kind
of priestly robe.
I would like at this stage if
you will permit me to quote two
verses from the Book of Titus:
"Exhort servants to be obedient
to their masters in all things
pleasing, not gainsaying, not de-
frauding, but in all things shew-
ing good fidelity that they may
adorn the doctrine of God our
Saviour in all things".
SWe shall never cease to be call-
ed servants, for we are bound to
serve our masters and our neigh-
bours. HUGH LAWRENTCE.
President Sadat: A SEPARATE PEACE?
President Carter has invited both
Mr. Begin and now President Sadat,
the two peacemakers, to Washington.
It is obvious that the U.S. Chief
is backing their pacific moves,
An article in Swiss Press Review by
Peter Sager tells us:-
"President Sadat of Egypt went to
Israel to try to find the basis for
a solution to the whole Arab-Israel
conflict. He stated repeatedly
that to him a fair answer to the
Palestine problem was as important,
if not more so, than the question
of Egypt's own lost territories.
This was still his point of view
when he reported to the Egyptian
Parliament and when he invited all
the confrontation states to Cairo.

President Sadat ;. A SEPARATE PEACE (from page two)
Now it transpires that the other confrontation states are reluctant to
join him. Not just one of them all of them. Sadat still looks for a
programme for a comprehensive solution to the conflict; but in the ab-
sence of his Arab partners it looks daily more impracticable. He cannot
negotiate alone on Palestinian matters, whether they are considered to
be under the-aegi's of the Palestine Liberation Organisation or of Jordan.
And he must feel that he might have expected better from the latter,
since it was King Hussein who led the way in meeting face-to-face with
Israeli leaders, albeit without fanfare.
There is a serious possibility that in the end President Sadat will
have to settle for a solution of his own piece of the Arab-Israel con-
flict. The Israelis are certainly ready to restore Sinai to him. They
have put hard conditions on this transfer in the past, but there have
been no real negotiations, and nobody knows what concessions they will
bring forward until meaningful talks start. The important thing. to
underline at this time is that if Sadat makes a separate peace, this
will be because it has been forced upon him not by Israel, but byhis
Christmas being traditionally the time of peace, millions of people
throughout the world who are neither Israelis nor Arabs, are praying and
hoping that Sadat's brave endeavouis will calm the latent hostFlity.
