EDITORIAL
Socrates' method of teaching ac-
cording to Plato's "Menno", was one
of interrogation. He maintained that
in applying said method man would be
stimulated to think for himself and
in consequence would acquire the
necessary knowledge to be virtuous.
Allow us to use this method for
moment, please:
There is a certain school in St.
Maarten where according to reliable
source the Sub-principal is acting
as Principal whilst the Principal
proper is present at same school. In
our opinion this situation is the
consequence of a highly peculiar par-
liamentary procedure.
We have not been able to find out
the motive behind this singular act-,
ion.
Why is this the case? Why is not
the Principal the Principal when
Principal? Cute questions, are not
they? But is not the matter cute, to
say. the least?
According to the same source, cer-
tain teachers at the same school,
make it a habit f frequently leav-
ing their class-rooms during school
hours to stroll the school'e veran-
da or have a friendly chat with a-
nother teacher.
What can be the quality of the e-
ducation received by children whose
teachers are frequently away from
the class-room during school hours?
No doubt there are reasons V/e
mean solid rasons for such conditions*
don't you think so? FineJ You are
thinking?.'

"An goin1 write a deeply racial book",
Chinchiri said to ne. And aa goin'
name it Darker than myself."
"Why," I asked. "DOn't you believe ,
there is sufficient racial stuff being
printed Uan, there are too many super-
fluous volumes on that theme already
on the market."
"Naw." Chinchiri, schuffed. "You wrong
there you wrona there nan. They aint
sayin1 too much bout thw theme, 'tis
the way you tref ; the autnal, you know.
Man ," he was saying when Crow an old
bartender at Sea-View came up to us.
"Coke" I said "Lie too" Chinchiri join-
ed ne "but kick it an' break a iceberg
in it." Crow laughed and
said "You always with you
fallutin' language. So
Run and Coke for you,
then."
"Hightl" Chinchiri con,-
fim*d and his laughter
sprawled carelessly **11
over the place. A fev
persons were scattered
about the bar. Two men
drooped at the bar liky
mosquitoes who had byen
flit but with not enough
to kill then. An Aeg-
ean tourist passed us on
his way out and siad "Hi".
"Hello" Chinchirf greet-
ed and took a sharp Jwig
of his drink.
"Darker thar myself"
he mused as if tasting the virtue of
the words in his mind.
"You know why 1 picked that title"
he continued, "I nane it ao.because
the rage that follow up the conse-
quences offft more or lesser pigmenta-
tion of the' skin is yet more destruc-
tive to the bearer than the shade of
the colour'itself." he started to com-
ment on his imaginary book now.
"Now, of course you got those psy-
chological crap-shooters who always
ready to group people Hell, man.
That aint fair faint fair at all.
Let's get back to 'Darker than myself.
I'll be treatin' the fallacies of the
Black man in he own environent. Take
for example; the question of black
men and women straightenin1 the hair.
Take again the lighter complexion
superiority lunacy. All that is for
the moon, man. 'Tis luneyii"
"But," I said "our men are at fault.
Because they believe that a woman just
is not right unless her hair is
like a peel. And she's just got to
have that tomato finish, know what I
mean?" fei
"Sbcactiy? Chinchiri, blurted out.
"That what-uu gettin' at. Man am try-
in* to get^at the root of things. I
say the black man is still behind
and I don't'mean socially economically
and culturally neither. He's lost his
masculinity his manhood. Can't see
the man looking at his vwn women
through hi*, taster's" eyes. And this
myopic conditioning is darker than
myself TJis the original sin of ny
darker brother,"

TTTTTTTTTTTTTT EDITORIAL Socrates' method of teaching according to Plato's "Menno", was one of interrogation. He maintained that in applying said method man would be stimulated to think for himself and in consequence would acquire the necessary knowledge to be virtuous. Allow us to use this method for moment, please: There is a certain school in St. Maarten where according to reliable source the Sub-principal is acting as Principal whilst the Principal proper is present at same school. In our opinion this situation is the consequence of a highly peculiar parliamentary procedure. We have not been able to find out the motive behind this singular act-, ion. Why is this the case? Why is not the Principal the Principal when Principal? Cute questions, are not they? But is not the matter cute, to say. the least? According to the same source, certain teachers at the same school, make it a habit f frequently leaving their class-rooms during school hours to stroll the school'e veranda or have a friendly chat with another teacher. What can be the quality of the education received by children whose teachers are frequently away from the class-room during school hours? No doubt there are reasons V/e mean solid rasons for such conditions* don't you think so? FineJ You are thinking?.' +++++-H-+++++++++++ LITTLE BAY H0T3L CASINO 2nd.
