Soon after the House sat today, a volley of
Opposition questions w e re fired at the
Ministers. They ranged from Miss Charles'
queries on "Planet Earth Dev.- was Govt
participating?' and on Treasury Bills and
P-icc Control what about vehicle spare-
parts? to Moise on Marketing of rejected
grapefruits, Bath Estate low cost housing.
and free secondary education; tben Casimir
on Grandbay Road repairs, unemploy-
ment and the Grandbay disturbances re-
port when would it be released? Lennox
also asked about the Dreads Report: when
A3d h', followed up a recent expose of con.
editions at the Leper Home by a blunt
query. Only one of the Independents .(Mr
Cyrus) asked questions on Village Coun-
cil Estimates and Morne Jaune School.

On Sept. 29, i974 Mr. Joey Morancie and his
wife Alica (pictured above with their daughters)
became the proud parents of triplet girl -
Dawn, Denise and Dione3
All three children are in good health, well
cared-for and intelligent; all try to talk already
and take first steps. They .visited the A Ifreys
at Copt Hall last Sunday and were charming
One sad note must be recorded: the
triplet's father,-a responsible
young foreman, is now unemployed
because his firm had to cease op-
erations for economic reasons.

----"THE: KINGDOM OF GOD -IS AT HAND by E.C. Loblack
I was very glad indeed when'I heard that the Government declared
Sunday 26th October to be a. day of National Prayer. The people were
asked to pray because the electrifying team have repented' over that oppres-
sive measure of a monthly rent tax imposed on the-people which generations
yet unborn will not be able to pay, No matter how old they are, if they
cannot pay that oppressive measure they. wil4. take. three months in prison
for %T-hat. they have laboured hard to obtain..
The Nation prays .with rejoicing hearts., believing that by the end of
November that' oppressive, taxation will be. scratched off Go'ernment statute
books. The assurance- the Nation has that their prayers will be, heard by
Him who answers prayerB, is written in the book of Isaiah Aap.,- verses
12-19; Ma.t.t25Lhchap., yerses 31-46, 2 Co.rinthians, chap.6, verses 14-18;
Hebrews Ohapolp, -verses 11-16. .
The Psalmist says "In the hands, of the Lord there is a cup, and the wmna
is red, it is. full of mixture., no iulemr-of-the nations would like to
drink the dregs thereof".
The people of the. nation will. spend their National Day with a
