A note of thanks is ex-
pressed to Mr. PIWI arid
the other organizers.
PETER & JOHN, Roseau

We will not stop complain,
ing until we are satisfied with the
leadership of our own Island; those
who suffer must groan, "and whom
the Lord loveth, he chastiseth."
We must again consider the idea
of an ex-Minister of Social Services
who has suggested the Nuns would
be more suitable for the Hospital.
We are not looking on the religious
side, but on better service and care
for the sick.
In one goes to visit the Nurses'
yard at nights, and even scm: wards
when some of them may be on so-
called duty, you might find these are
somewhat flirtatious places instead
of places to care for the sick.
I, (although of Negro descent) am
indeed proud of one Carib Nurse for
her interest in her job and in the
sick, although Caribs are considered
to be the least of humans, but this
one is first in service to those who
do not claim her to be a people.
I wonder who is responsible for
all this spending on wat is called
the training of Nurses? What kind
of training?'

Some thirty-two parents braved
the inclement weather on Monday,
Sept. 21 to form a ParentTeachers'
Association at Tete Morne. Being
hvld at the Tete Morne School, the
meeting commenced at 7 p.m. with
Asst. Teacher V. Jos. St- Luce tak,
ing the chair.
How quickly he arrested the
attention of the parents; confronting
them with the uphill struggle faced
by teachers in educating their child,
ren, and consequently the reason for
the formation of such an association
as the sole raedium through whicn
education can obtain the necessary
drive it so vitally needs in an un-
developed Dominica.
The next speaker Mr. Law-

desired unizy between parents and

And the chance of Gold,

'hand, is still the :stronger
hand at home and economic
affairs. This is the ground
on which he hopes to beat
Sir Alec.
The Conservatives know
that tneir leader is vulnerable
on this front, and have so far
successfully avoided any tele,
vision encounter between the
Prime Minister and Mr.
Wilson, in which the Leader
of the Oppos.tion can show
off his phenomenal memory
for facts and figures and his
theoretical command of econ,
omics. But Sir Alec's air
of crisp authority carries con/
viction away from the dom/
estic front.
The election therefore is
far from being a walk-over
for either side. The public
opinion polls are now show,
ing this. Indeed, at the mom,
ent polls are confusing, as one
shows Labour ahead, the
other predicts a Conservative
victory. We are in for an
exciting three weeks, and all
we can be sure of at the
moment is that the lucky
winner, whoever he may be,
will echo the Duke of Wel,
lington after Waterloo: "It
was a damn'd near thing".

SAT .A!JAY, OCTOBER 3, i-194

I wonder whether it would be worth the while to take up (be challenge to
reply to Mr. Stu-rt Wil'iams' brilliant but futile attempt to ty to criti-
cise -'hat he did not clearly understand. Again another has found him,'
selfin a fine labyrinth or in other words an embarrassing situation. It is
very unfortunate that a more prJlific or outstanding member
of the D. U. P. P., for example, the leader of the Opposition or the poli,
tical leader did not censure (sic) this article before allowing such an un-
becoming thesis to appear in the press.
The tone of language and the manner of inscriptions used justify
previous attacks on the inability of the u. U. P. P. members to think. I
never for once mentioned in my ar=cle that what was completed was not
started by the previous government but was merely intent cn showing the
nation that some progress has been trade since the Labour Government
took office; Mr. Williams' personal attacks on Mr. Stevens in reference to
"your father'sgovernme!'' so regularly used in his article only shows the
amount of malice and hate which he and his colleagues cherish, and the
base level at which their type of politics can aspire politically, intellectually,
or otherwise, to the stand-rd set by W. S. Stevens and his courageous son
Pat Stevens. Take this not as a threat for I scorn to threaten any but my
equals. A man who failed miserably to achieve one per cent of the votes
in his constituency in the last general elections should refrain from trying to
convince a developing people.
If the D. U. P. P. is Lent on making a come-back and is intent on
convincing the electorate they cannot do this on the groundwork ofignor-
_.nd illiteracy. Mr. Williams spoke of homes for delinquent children but
he should have read Mrs. Harris' address concerning delinquent children
before making himself a scapegoat of his party, for Mrs. Harris is a memberr
of the same party. But perhaps Mr. Williams does not read, or if he does,
he cannot understand what he reads.
It is not necessary for me to continue to use valuable space over' one
who may be clinging to his party for society sake -and who miay be piep-
ared at any time to sell the birthright of his country for a mess of ponage.
Finally, we must avoid being personal in the press and be more fac'
tual especially when we are delir.g with civil servants as far as mentioning
their names is concerned. We must deal with the policy andr.ot the indi-
vidual. We must raise our standards of writing in the press to suit mo-
dern civilisation.
We Stevens will not back down even if we realise that assassination
is the answer to truth for righteousness exalteth a nation and sin is a reproach
to any people.

Wazte Not, Want
by "Molokoi"
"Waste net, want not" was called
a Household Word, indicating that
thrift was a virtue to be emulated.
It may astonish the younger genera,
tion which has never heard the old
adage now long superseded 50
years perhaps by a simpler phrase
regarded as almost sacred, which
justifies even amateur efforts at rascal-
ity: it is "iood for Trade." Three
words instead of four that save
time so valuable to us all. The
fact is that we are now encouraged
to throw away anything rather than
to repair it, on orders trom the holy
manufacturers on high, and shop-
keepers are their prophets! Ear Why?
Every time you buy anything the
prophets ate profitting, by compell-
ing you to pay for something they
sell and are well aware that it is
short-lived fit any normal household.
You are then pr.vleged to buy an,
other, worse if possible. Fortunes
are spent upon improving the tech-
r.que of skillful mendacity, which is
glorified under, the tsodriquei of
:'Advetizing'. A hundred years ago
loudly boasted claims were inevitably
disbelieved, but as the quality of the
customers minds deteriorated through
ignorance, they believed more in ad,
vertizing which inlictd more and

ly cheap causes him to lie awake at
mnght tigunng out some trick by
which, he ca make it expensive.
Customers are not expected to know
the difference between cotton and
linen, silk or nylon, iron or steel, the
"pairs of opposites", or to know
how to estimate the quality, of any,
thing. They simply presume the
high price represents the best, and
the small price something which can-
i6t be sold for any more. This is
called Progress. Value has ceased t
be understood. Discount for cash
deceives us into believing we are
getting something a little cheaper.
The principle of distribution of
goods has been reformed at the roots;
the shop does not sell what you
want, but what it wants you to buy.
If you find something worth what it
costs, shops don't stock it any more,
but have found something which
looks enough like it to make you
believe it is 'just as good'. Rivalry
between shops is giving way rapidly
to collusion: if you can't buy it here
you won't find it anywhere else. More

Spartans Gain First, Win
On Sunday, D. G. S. suffered at
the hands (or is it feet ?) of Spartans,
as the latter slammed in six goals to
schools three in an actioanpacked
contest. The slippery conditions did
not dampen the enthusiasm with
which the game was played. It was
partitstlay refreshing to see Spartan-
ics showing such thrust and team-
work fi they had displayed so little
ofthis intheir two earlier encounters.
Their defence was as stout as usual
but this time the forwards clicked.
Thherewas a great deal of shuffling
of the forwa~i and this turned out
advantageous to the tune of a hat-
trick by John Baptiste, a fine low
hooter by Casimir, and an opportu-
nist effort by Smith. ,;Doctrove net-
ted the first from a free kck. His pre-
sence there was most inspiring.
For D. G. S., Joseph, Elwin and
Charles (Erimsley) netted three fine
goals, the resultof good teamwork
and generally splendid to warch., Mr.
Hubert Joseph held the whistle 'and
kept the game in check.

.Ramos Defeated
The world feal~erweight"cham-
pion Sugar Ramos'was surprisingly
defeated by the then No 2 coitender
for his crown-Viceite Saldivar of
Mexico. Ramos who is only 3 years
older than the challenger faired well
in the early rounds but later received
*a severe pummelling fromiNth native
lad. He was 4leiding from both
rose and a cut over his right eye and
the referee stopped the fight as Ramos
made a feeble attempt to answer the
bell for the i2th round of the sche-
duled fifteen rounder.
Prior to this title bout Saldivar
had won 23 of his 24 professional
bouts, losing only once since 1961.
Ramos, who hails from Cuba wants
another crack at the crown and says
he'll retire after that.
European Boxing Union Acts
The E.B,U. has stripped Henry
Cooper of England of his European
Heavyweight title, after handing him
an ultimatum to fight the German
Karl Mildenberger before Oct I7th.
Cooper, who withdrew from the
fight because of an injured hand last
month, did not make comment, but
his manager declares "I stiU regard
Henry as the undefeated European
heavyweight champion".
