Fiction A T IT 1 E by CYNTHIA WATT
Christmas and New Year were over, and. the poor abused city.slowly...:"
settled back to work. Their wind y. weather blew harshly, and. although the -
sun .was shining, there was 'a nip of cold through it' all, just as in
No-rtherh lands, from which so ..iany home-loving, visitors had. come,.for a
". holiday.
M a -Titine -awoke very-' e ly' on the fourth .,day of -the New.Year., -She
had certainly enjoyed'hierself-'. Garge and Eurilla had come over from St.
Thomas for- the seasonal -week-end; -never before had such a, spread been ,
laid on"her'-table,; and all -.the neighbours had done full justice td the
eats. Now her beloved family had breezed off. again; yesterday she had
-taken-a whole-day's relaxation, and now she was ready to.go back'to her
chores. Before .preparing a solitary breakfast, she slipped out into the
yard just in time to see Baby advancing up the road.
"Hey Titine, you early dis morning"
"Way papa! de wedder cool an' nice, so I come out an enjoy it.
Way you going yo'" self?"
"Well,. it only half pas' seven. I did feel jus' like you; I.enjoyin'
de. cool -wedder." (But there was more in. their minds than weather-talk).
So Titine invited Baby inside, and they had breakfast and followed'
that.up with shots of rum aid ginger.-ale for a chaser.
"Titine, you know what .Iheah? Dey goin' have a emergency session of
de. House- of .Assembly. dis. mont'1 Wha' you say for dat!"
Titine, whodi oyh.d the beoufs and daybahs of politics more than the
theory, said.,, ."D.e year start and.dey already starting' wid,dere fool-
ishness, .
"Eh heinz I heah dat dbee Minister have anodder coule shalviway
e.mpng dem again' Ebben, way ppap Ca pout fai' 6pi yoh?"
Titine took, a heavy swig from her glass, spluttered "Dey can all go
to-hell, I have nosin' to say..." Baby slapped her on the back, and con-
tinued:, -
"You don' heah all yet. Dey goin' charge about a dozen people for
what happen at de Court House before Chris'mas, but up to now I don' know
de.nhame of dem all, Eh eh, mi yon. bagaii"
Titine filled .their glasses and said, pushing Baby's drink towards
her, "Look Baby, drink yo' rum, dose; people don' care about me an'you,
you know. Dey only looking foh ..daselve. Les' look foh ourselves "
"But Titine, de way tings going' you don' thinkk here can have a revol-
ution? Wha' happen.las' mont' is jus .-a sample, I tink. De people not
satisfy. We goin' have plenty trouble if tings don' settle between de..
Government, de Opposition an''de people." .
Just at that moment the postman rapped at the door. He had a late
Christmas card for Ma Titine from a cousin in England. "Scobie get his
summons, frens he said with a wily grin.
"Way papa!" both women cried in unison.
"But he pass me on he way to de airport. Nobody going' stop him," said
the postman.
"Thanks God(.," said Baby. "An' what about my Queen?"
"What Qusea you mean?" asked the postman,
"It have Queen an' Queen," remarked Titine mysteriously. "It have
Queen Elizabeth. It have Golda Mare. It have India Gandle. ..It have one
woman put he in an' anodder goin'.put he out. An' de las' of de-lot is;
Baby Queen."
"But is not Scobie she put out?"'asked the postman, puzzled.
"No, is Pree-mier self," said Titine.
"I not in politics," said the postman, retiring as Baby called after
him: "Tete Solomon roulez 1'annbe -sala."
When he had gone, Baby turned to:Titine. "You tink dey summons my
Queen too)? If at all, is I sell going' bear witness I stamp. de table. I
boun' to be in de Court. Who don' in de Court not in society."
"Swear to God an' I yo' witness" exclaimed Titine in a burst of

Now the Burnham-Leblanc/Armour
plan is clear. All the benefits of.-'
economic association witi th-e' Com-
mon Market will'not be available to
the larger, fully independent Com-
monwealth Caribbean States. And so,
with Dominica joined to Guyana, we
shall be cut off from the market,
from the money and from our kith,
kin and prototypes in Guadeloupe
and Martinique.
Whanshould we draw closer to --
the islands on each side of us, .no
more than 30 miles away, who speak
patois and where many people have
relatives, or Guyana -- a thousand
I:i-es to the south of us in South
ericaa -- where half the people are
East Indian? Let's start nearer home
This union with Guyana could not
come at a worse time in the destiny
oft Dominica. If we remain as an
Associated State for.just two more
years, then we get all the benefits
of Common Market Association. This
will not just mean getting hand-outs
either. It is all organised under a
special treaty with the states of
black Africa, a partnership called
the Yaound6 Convention. Like them,
we'd have-an equal say in arrange-
ments with the Europeans.
And once we are in,...then, if
we become fully independent in some
combination with other West Indian
Associated States, we can still con-
tinue to be full members of the EEC
Association, like the independent
states of black Africa, who started-
that way too. We have-prbsperity
waiting for us -- and Leblanc and
Armour and their supporters are de-
ciding to throw it away. But they

-I think our drivers could be a
'bit more courteous, especially when
they have to stop on.a line.Usually
there are passer-bys, including
school children of course, who must
stop and await the movement of a ve.-
hicle. The driver, knowing more of
his movement, should quickly make
signs to those waiting to cross (and
he should disregard the impatient
drivers behind who try to hoot him on.
A jeep, truck or car is a very
fast machine and can always.make up
time (with care).
I notice also that when our gar-
bage' trucks are being loaded, some
drivers with short patience keep blow-
ing their horns, and some even keep
.cursing when they are briefly delayed

Lastly, drivers should wait a bit
whenever Mass is over at the Cathedra3J.,
especially when the crowd is heavy.
They should only move when the crowd
is lessened. Many old or weak-kneed
worshippers would be so happy and
grateful for this fine gesture. HL

League cricket faded out from
lack of interest after the Goodwill
Tournament convincingly won by St.
Vincent with wins over Dominica and
Grenada and a draw with St. Lucia,
Some new talent popped up during the
season providing 5 new caps on the
State Team, including young Sebastiar
of DGS. League cricket was abandoned
without any champion team, so DASA
decided to call Saints and Celtics
joint champs. Two first class matdaes
were played in the Gardens -- Com-
bined Islands v. Guyana (Shell Shied)
and Windwards v. India.
In the EHE-sponsored village cric
ket league at Mero, Beach Rovers of
St.Joseph emerged champions whenthlr
defeated Rosalie in the is
Rosalie United's second time in fnals
- in 1970, Emeralds were champs.
FOOTBALL:The past season collapsed a
month before the Popham Tournament
which Dominica won over defending
champions Grenada in the final match
of the tournament 3-0,Dec.4. This
dayismemorable to football enthusiasts
as the 1st time in history Dominica

never took place,leaving Celtic Unred

Yes, this is the Happy New Year 1972
for the State of Dominica. Whether the
storm will be weathered with no vildemnz
remains to be seen. It would be well
for some persons who in their official
Christmas messages tried to play the

the straw that broke the camel's back.
