There is absolutely no doubt that de-
spiUt the vwiunmed. penalties for electoral
misdeeds, a shocking lot of trickery went
on duringg Dominica's recent general dec
tion. At Mahaur we hear that the polls
opened half an bhor late and an evident
go-alow was practised, so that at- p.m.
cldoiag time 80ovore:s were shut out.
Can't everybody guess for whom te ma
jority of these would bave voted? At
Cochrane, a minor was rroimpted by his
mother to vote; we are told that free
abickens were used as bribes in the north
by Labour adherents, in addition to the
usual rum o.er most of the State. he ,
number of spoiled ballots was unprecc&I
dented-it seemed that the polling attend
'ants were all set,in many cases, NOT'
to help the poor voter do his or her duty
correctly. The' oare some of the more or
less open tricks, but there were also co-
.yrednsip ones which are now coming to
jight, Te names of many .young Domi
ricans were lefr out from the final voters'
lists. Many o:f the registering officers arid-
polling clerks were obviously strong La-
bourites .., hey went out of their way
to frustrate T'reedomires and to accomo
date Labourites.
And nobody can ignore Miss Charles'
words spoken in a post election broadcast:

.Half of our Dominican voters
have in no uncertain terms told the
world that they were perfectly sat-

Continue to squeeze the life .out

its hard works.
Continue to establish marketing

when profits do not materialize and
the funds evaporate,
Continue to fritter away local
and foreign taxpayers' moneys which
are also used to-win resounding elec-
