In the STAIE (March 28) I wrote an-

John, demonstrated to tho nLJuioi. 1h.at
,I meant by success being a bad word,
when Father Alexander was banned from
Radio Dominica* It is stooping below
worm level to do a thing like that.
It is obvious to see (as reported
by, the .island's two newspapers) that
no real reason was given for the ban.
But the most striking sentence in the
statement inade by Government is that
Father Alexander shouldn't assist in
any way in, the Radio Station (where
he spoke popularly on cricket and in
patois). (Turn to page four)

The recent OBU interviews with
Heads of States in the Caribbe.an
brought out ,the best as well as the
worst in those leaders. One thing.
ha&, emerged in most of them and that
is; that freedom of expression in'
press or on platform is distasteful.
to them,
Withia prelude of "Abide with me"
thinking people felt that Premier
Patrick John did not do justice to
the Dominica that had given him and
his: party confidence and trust for'
another five years.
Law and Order has been dethroned
and the Premier's handling of this
leaves too much tobe desired. His
reference to revolutionary -trends
was left unexplained. Tbe interview
with Premier Patrick John showed
very plainly, apart frot inflation
due to the oil crisis, that Dominica.
will need capable and sincere lead-
ers, to restore law and order to
stem the tide of social injustice,
to uncover 'babol' to make the: most
fertile island in the Caribbean
produce profusely not only for her
people ,out ?for others whose lands
,ase not so blessed,, '

SRemember Eurilla, Ma .Titine's. dau
gehter who married a young mhite man
rom the USA and went there to live?
Well Ma .Titine was stunned when the
mother-in-law suddenly turned-Up in
Dominica to visit her. She was ,about
Ia' Titine's size and just'as greatan
eater. Every morning the two ladies
listened to the eat local programme
on the radio, and Ti/tine told her me
relative Mrs..D. that she- (-being
"gens: 'bitation" knew a 1pt more re-
cipes, -starting with pumpkin fish ,
ca-es and lots of others not yet gver
:by the Minister's sister. "I want to
,hear her give a real good calallou
&-ish,.. anyway that programme is a
goad idea." -
However, when MA Titane and' Baby
tried to serve Mrs. D. with curried
breadfruit and sliced cucumbers for
breakfast, the usually pol-ite guest
held up her hands, fished some money
ou-t of her handbag and -begged Baby
to go :. i kly and buy her a few good
fresh Dominica eggs. "I*m not just
used to that kind of exotic start
to. 9y nutritional day," she said.

'DDREADS" AMD OTHER ACTS (fr.rpage 1).
The Opposition has confXined-itself
to- asking from Civil Servants' complaints,
Ministers' travel, land acquisition,
allegations of brutality, youth prob-
lems, security of documents, Deep
Water Harbour;) and. Govt. Acts include
the two on p.1, plus twelve others
ranging from Town & Country Planning
to Naturalisation and passport Ordi-
aA3oes. The Questions, which come
early in the agenda, and certain of
the draft Acts should cause a ripple-
of interest. 10. a.m., Thursday, -July
24th at Governmenti Headquarters,
Is. r Alexander anti-establishment
when he is heard over Radio Dominica-
as a cricket commentator? What did
Fr. Alexander say that was.anti-esta-
blishment to have upset .the Premier,
resulting in a ban? The name of
Christ, which he professes to follow?
These questions are of paramount im-
portance to the nation,
It is now evident in Dominica that
ajVnbody w ho tries to 'edicate: the
masses is dismissed by a Government
which is only interested in keeping
the masses forever backward. It is
said that- you can.take a man fro-m the
gutter but you cannot take the mud
from him. A most .recent example is
the ban on Fr. Alexander. Catholics,
wake up. Are we going to sit still
while people'take our rights (FREEDOM-
OF SPEECH) away from us? To trate o1u
.roldgious: d cripe?- if so, let us
forever hold our peace, "Quality"
will be the determining factor, the
gauge which will register whether the
Faithful are "men or mice".
Last week !I heard a hot debate in
Windsor Park! one man said, "Boy, if
ai person is sick and lying' on a hospi-
tal bed and can draw overtime, the
people who attend that individual on
his sick bed should draw- overtime. too".
Besides this, there are a lot, of
other rumours flying around, such as
people who built houses and have no
receipts for building materials etc...
I will tell you how the general public
can satisfy itself: through an investi-
gation, after which those who are
caught must be placed before the Courts
of Justice,
Nest time I will give. you a relevant
quotation from "The English Legal
System," -E.C. LOBLACK.
