The outbreak of violence over t h e
Cwanival Weekend was discussed and the
Minister accepted the idea of a National
CoAncil at which all shades of opinion
comld be represented in an attempt to era-
dicate the attitude which is so detrimental
to the State.
The Minister undertook to represent
the matter to his colleagues and to keep the
Opposition informed o f future plans o f
Seion to be taken.
The Honourable Minister thanked the
members ot the Opposition for indicating
so clearly that they were pledging their
uAited support in these circumstances.

1ODEK MTWTBS &. LEGEnDS OF DOIIITICA an adult collec- ion by 2im-Tim (1) Val-ha-la.
VAL-Iia-LA;- is not to be confused with Valhalla which according to heathen Scandi-
navians was the abode iilie'e the souls of those fallen in battle (Old Norsel: Valholl:
"hall of their slain") are received by the god Odin, and fight and Zeast in his oer-

VAL-IH-LA. is described as ferocious, rapacious: creature with several heads; it is
said tobe given to extraordinary powers whenooanered, and can subdue forces vastly
superior in number thrdough-its ability to adopt exceptional camouflage, evasive
tactics and other diversions..
It was first sighted in LTovember 1973 by the intrepid expeditionary unit of
Messrs. A*******, P-: i A.A****** and Miss 4* D,::***. Authenticated reports
since then establish repeated sighting of this unique .bea pt, particularly in the
northern region of' Dominica. However, .official expeditions--sponsored by the Smith-
sonian Institute, the British"M-useum and the University of WForida have failed to
locate the. habitat of Yal-ha-la, and so no positive Verification exists of it.
existence. There is no ph6tbtrhphio evidence, neither has the creature left spoor.
By all accounts "the 'Beast is. -till at large, despite "several daring attempts."*
by indefatigable hunters', -assisted .by expert baiters a.d- trappers to capture it
alive. Already, the existence' of Val-ha-la has asshmeda apocryphal dimensions, and
the countless; variations of its appearances has entered' the mythology of Dominica.
Countering the sceptical note of scientists, Do6minican sources point to the
soars worn by several persohs" who claim to have been savagely attacked and mauled
by Val-ha-la. These include several native mnagerie keepers, amateur zoologists and
at least facr foreign adienturers lured to Dominica by prospects of big game, of
Safari. None of these persons has been able to give ahnacciurai report of their
ordeal. several of their reported impressions are incohsistoinT with their obvious:
wounds, and at least one person appears to have suffered amnesia.
The best reports suggest Val-ha-la is a hybrid -- te result of the nating of
a Dominia Laatain bird known"as the La-bird**,-.-ad hhnother' creature of uncertain
habit, circumstance and form knowhoolloquially as "'al cabrity. The latter-originato;
from the- S Virgin Islands of St. Croix/St. Thomas,, mig ini4gg to Dominica where it
mates and breeds before returning to its origin. This" -Aliant creature has been
described as an amorphous slow-moving mass with at.leas two heads and many tentacleso
It is said, to change form iind hue when excited. Despite extensive research; no con-
nection has been established generically with the migatory"bird of passage,' CoITotra
native to Sicily and. the United States. Despite obvious tsuerficial similarities',
authoritative sources discount any relationship with .-lie prolifico American species
of Watergator. Linkds'have also been suggested with" Guyana, but these, are at best
tenuous. That the creatu-e .is still evolving howveor-is cohfirmed by recentiit reports.
that in its. latest appearance the creature had developed a newly-grown sturdy shell
for self-protection. When alrl ed it withdraws into tlhi carapace and remains-.
immobile for long periods', It is also reported to haE changed form as ic its one
recognizable characteristic..
One sharp-eyad hlinte& .**C"af firms that while Valhala had changed three of its
heads totally, one. remained familiar because of .its-.benigh but cunning smile."
Several eminent prof essrs and legal exports on~. Dominichn legend contend
Val-.ha-la is a. figment"bf the imagination; others-admit .its existence but' day it will
not reappear having risen" from Underground caverns and co6isumod its powers in the
rarifiod atmosphere of the surface. Still others maintain the creature is related
to the Loch Ness Monsto-r and- resides in the far recessed of the Freshwater Lake from
where it makes its forays on a confused public,. This matter report has triggered a
new search for the creature, and at least two recobinaisanc;eparties have ventured
