The present dispute centres around the U-A- W-U-'S modified wage demand for the 18 month contract which would see .the top workers at Jarnalco earning two hundred and sixty five dollars ($265) per hour .. At present, there is a top.rate of ninety five dollars per hour ($95) and a bottom rate of sixty one dollars, ($61). Those rates have been in effect since 1993. The Management has rejected that de-

mand. The Union had already issued a strike notice which was subsequently withdrawn. The Minister of Minins. Horace Clarke, has since issued a warning that any strike at this time could be lengthy and result in the plant closing indefinitely. cant ....on page 3

The WestIndies played Australia in five one-day Internationals and four test Matches, a total of nine matches. The West Indies won four of the One-day Internationals and one Test Match, a total of five matches. Australia won one One-day Internationai and two Test Matches, the other ending in a draw. Therefore the West Indies won five matches to three. Another scenario is that the West Indies won the One-day series and Australia the Test Series, so the tour ended in a draw. The non-cricket fans say, so why worry."

Sports writers and fans alike spoke of a great showdown at Sabina between two of the best teams in the On the rest day, with West In- world. A win for the West Indies having lost three wickets dies was always on their cards for less than seventy runs and but a draw would not have

changed the status quo, a loss a defmite no no. Excuse the euphemism but when one examines the Australian Tour to the West Indies from a layman's perspective, the question remains did we lose? In a worse case scenario the West Indies drew but won in a best case scenario.

The Hospitals to benefit from ing field. this are the May Pen Hospital, Mandeville Public Hospital, Spanish Town Hospital, Bustamante Hospital for Children, Cornwall Regional Hospital, Sav-vanna-Ia-rnar and the St Anns Bay Hospital. The Quality Assurance Programme was initiated in 1990 and was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, Office of Health, Bureau for Science and Technology under a co-operative This seminar is being held to agreement with the Centre for Working identify and implement plans Human Services. with the Centre for Human for the May Pen Hospital, and de vel 0 p sus t a ina b I e a p- Services on this project are the University proaches for improving the John Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public quality of health care in all needed areas.

The objectives of the project are to provide technical assistance to design and implement effective strategies for monitoring quality and correcting systematic deficiencies and to refine existing methods for ensuring optimal quality health care through an applied research programme. Mrs. Lorna Salmon-Baker, the CE.O. of May Pen Hospital told Town-Cry that project

work has already been in operation informally at the Hospital. She noted that this quality assurance will be applied to Doctors, Nurses, Medical Staff, Pharmacists, Warders, Records areas, Special Care Units,X-rays, Sterilization, Laboratories and the Maintenance Department. "It's about attitude and performance," she noted, "it's all about a vision and a mission," were her last words.

In the meantime, the situation on the ground is very tense with growing rumours of redundancy and its effects. The situation is exacerbated by administrative update of the employees files. A new union, the Union of Technical & Administrative Personnel, U-T-A-S-P, has just gained bargaining rights for another group of workers. The U.A.W.U. represents over nine hundred workers at Jamaica, two hundred of which are contractors or involve in special projects. Against the background of extensive union rivalry, the Jamaica settlement could be the benchmark for future negotiations in the bauxite industry.

How often have we say "the children are our future, and in them lies the hope of a better tomorrow," but how little we consider their well-being and livelihood. How very precious are our dreams for the future, but how little it seems we ensure that we work towards achieving these dreams. How many time have you seen naked and homeless children on the streets but offer not a second look, a kind smile or a few dollars? Instead we insist in chasing them away, saying they should go horne, get ajob or go to school.

I bel ieve that if every Jamaican would find it in their hearts to constantly give a small percentage of their earnings to charity, then eventually this would result in numerous amounts of homeless people, ineluding children being fed, clothed and sheltered each day. So where do we go from here? Do we continue to take little or no interest in the constant but silent cry for help around us, or do we try to be "Good Samaritans" and offer help where help is needed?

My problem is this, I have a girlfriend who I have known for the past two years, but I am not sure if I really love her. I never did anything to hurt her and never would, but some how I am having doubts about my feelings for her. Sometimes I feel like she means everything to me and sometimes I feel nothing for her. Another thing that is bothering me is that I've gotten friendly with this other young woman, but it is not too ·serious. I told this young woman about my girlfriend and that I don't have any plans of leaving her for anybody, but she still insists on us getting involved. My girlfriend stays in Kingston because that is where she attends school. She is a very independent person and that's one of the qualities I admire in her, she is also very understanding and she cares for me a lot, though sometime she doesn't show it.

appropriate time and place to talk with' her about your concerns without accus-. ing Or threatening her. If you don't' want to hurt either of the two girls, you will end up hurting both and yourself. The more of your mental energies you spend on this other young woman, the less feelings you will have for your girlfriend. If your girlfriend's only problem is her failure to show you her true feelings, give her time to show you rather than take one who expresses her feelings but lacks what your girlfriend has.

Dear Advisor,

I have a problem, I am a 19 year old girl who is completely in love with a 26 year old man. He says he love me and sometimes show it, but he does not trust me enough. Even though I show my true feelings for him, he still doubts my actions. When I go to work he calls to see if I'm Advisor 1 am so confused, I don't want to there, and if not, he accuses me of being hurtanyof these girls especially my girf with another man. friend, I don't know if it's because my girlfriend does not sometimes show her Advisor I don't what is to become of us.

C.M. Manchester Worried Clarendon Dear Worried. DearC.M. Your 26 year old boyfriend has a security problem. Is he insecure, or do you make him insecure? Your story tells me that be doesn't know what it means to love someone. He obviously wants to own you. You are going to end up with the man you love, but trapped in a very unhealthy relationship unless he changes. The bottom line is this, he has got to respect you as a person, and trust and respect you, unless you give him reason not to. My only fear is that you may already love him too much to see the danger. To save this relationship you will have to do everything he says, and give up your rights and freedom. You will have him, but you will be his

Your swings of feelings and no feelings could be caused by her failure to show you at times that she cares, and the attention you are getting from this other young woman.

Sherily Fenn stars as Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor in Liz: The Elizabeth Taylor Story based on an unauthorized biography of the star. Unauthorized may be an understatement for the NBC miniseries airing May 21. Taylor went to court to try to stop production of the TV movie but lost. The controversy. however, hasn't hampered Fenn, who knows what she would say to Taylor should they ever run in to each other. "I would tell (Elizabeth Taylor) that I am somebody that doesn't make choice at this point in my life lightly, I'm not somebody that wants to exploit another woman's story or life in any way." says Fenn.

She asked s.arcastically, "I could ask for some time ott" "Good ask for some to stay with the baby."

Joycelyn got out of the car as it came to a stop beside Aly>:yn, she went out to meet him as ifhe was a lon~ lost friend. She embraced him, am Ilate?"
