REGIONAL ECONOMIC POLICIES by Androcles

One of the great weaknesses of the outgoing Labour Government of
Dominica has been its failure to assert abroad such strong points
and achievements for which we can make a national claim. As a matter
of fact, it has been sinning in the opposite direction: an anxiety
to thrust upon us the attitudes and philosophies and theories develop-
ed in other parts of the Caribbean which our Ministers, in the course
of their several jaunts, have come across. Not once do we find any of
them setting out with force, conviction and in historical perspective,
the findings and experiences of Dominica in any matter. Because of
this attitude or lack of it, many of us are heartily sick and tired
of this second-fiddle national posture in which we are placed and I,
for one, will be happy when way is made to enable the authentic voice
of Dominica to be heard,
Many of us, of course, are well aware of the national weaknesses,
but we are also familiar with the national strengths and these latter
need to be proclaimed in the councils of the Caribbean whenever the
opportunity presents itself.
I am thinking of this call for co-operative organization going out
from the so-called more developed British Caribbean countries largely,
it is said, under pressure from their Black Power Movements. These
countries are actually implying that the smaller Windward and Leeward
islands are quite unfamiliar with the notion of co-operative organi-
zation. It is as though in those bigger territories scales have fallen
from the national eyes as regards the merits of co-operative organiza-
tion and so they must bring the good news to us,
We are being told, again, that it is most desirable to have nation-
al co-operative banks in which financial assistance to the smaller
people will enable them to acquire and develop property. I gather
that in some of the territories this type of financial institution
-' has not previously existed and is only now being discovered. In Domin-
ica we have had a co-operative bank for nearly thirty years and it has
been formed from the grass-roots of the people. Let us say such things
loudly, for our lacks and shortcomings are not played in low key in
other territories.
Now as far as truly co-operative organization is concerned, it is
now a quarter century since the notion and a variety of co-operative
projects made their appearance in Dominica. I cannot say how flourish-
ing they are or indeed whether they still exist, but I do know that
the idea of co-operative purchase, processing, marketing, agricultural
labour, savings and loan (Credit Unions) has been known in Dominica
for a long time and that their utility has been undoubted. In the case
of some of:them, the lack of adequate skilled supervision, which in
those years was not provided, may account for the failure of their
adequate development. But certain it is that we are not for the first
time hearing about co-operatives, nor is it with us a by-product of
the Black Power Movement. So that there are persons in Dominica, some
in Government employ, who know a great deal about the Co-operative
Movement and do not have to get their inspiration from Trinidad
or Guyana. If our Government really wished to develop the Co-opera-
tive Movement here in addition to the development which the Credit
Unions have so methodically carried out, it could easily be done for
a reasonable expenditure of Government money. And in fairness I would
say that this is one direction in which the present Government has
evinced some interest.
In Trinidad, the Black Power Movement has, with Government assist-
ance and blessing, started a project of co-operative farming. For
many years there have been experiments in this, notably in Jamaica,
but without great results so far. Let us hope that the Trinidad scheme
will be more successful. In Dominica we have never gone the whole hog
in this line, but we have known the system of the exchange of free
labour by a group of small landowners on their individual holdings.

ANDROCLES (Continued from Page Two)
The higher the wage of agricultural labour rises, the more feasible
should be attempts at the revival of this excellent form of co-opera-
tion.
If we had advertised our wares enough, the new proponents of co-
operative organization would have sought the views of Dominica and
drawn upon its experience instead of presuming to advise us on a
matter with which we are more acquainted than they. That, for example,
Barbados with its pluto-capitalistic structures should be bringing
co-operative organization to our notice is almost the ultimate in re-
proach, So before blaring the trumpets of co-operative activity, the
experience of Dominica, among others like Jamaica, could have been
looked at. For there are snags and pitfalls in the context of our
stage of evolution which enthusiasm and high pressure salesmanship
by themselves cannot overcome. In other words, we are not to be carried
away by those latter day prophets who think co-operative organization
by itself will produce a new heaven and a new earth. Incidentally, the
strengths of insistence from official sources in some of those count-
ries would seem to indicate that the next phase may be compulsory co-
operation, admittedly a contradiction in terms.
From perhaps the same sources is coming a call for a West Indian
version of State Capitalism. Using a phrase which will soon be widely
adopted by those always wishing to appear to be with it "controlling
the commanding heights of the economy it is being urged that the
various Governments should, as far as possible, become shareholders
in businesses having strategic importance in the local economy and in
the case of those involving foreign capital and management, the State
should own not less than 51% of the shares. There is also the -suggest-
ion that we should not be so anxious to secure foreign capital parti-
cipation in local ventures since, it is claimed, there exists a fair.
fund of domestic savings which only awaits proper channelling. And
more recently, emanating from the same source, we are being given ad-
vice on a Caribbean basis of how we should deal with our land re-
sources vis-a-vis foreigners.
Together, these ideas form a corpus of proposals for the economic
development of the region in an integrated way. But the weakness of
these proposals is that they are expected to apply in an area having
such diversity of conditions that uniformity of action cannot work.
Let me explain what I mean.
It is suggested, inter alia, that we should not in the future sell
lands to non-nationals, but only lease to them. This is understand-
able in a place like Barbados but I do not think it makes sense or
for progress in Dominica where shortage of land is not envisaged for
many generations if the soil is conserved but where the acute short-
age is in capital. The selling of some lands at good prices to foreign-
ers will increase the capital supply without diminishing the land
available and use of which can always be controlled by legislation
if necessary. In an area where capital is not so scarce, it is under-
standable that attention be focused on land, but where land is re-
latively abundant as compared with capital, the emphasis must be other-
wise, To create the appropriate infrastructure to develop the lands
of Dominica will require capital of an order which staggers the
imagination. This is not the case with areas, particularly those
which have developed on King sugar, whose infrastructure is relative-
ly, as compared with ours, well advanced.
I also find it difficult to believe that in a place like Dominica
we can in the foreseeable future have the amount of domestic savings
needed to build a modern national economic structure. I am therefore
not in favour of discouraging foreign capital, though I favour control
when necessary.

craft used on the river Nile back in
time of the Pharaohs. But wh: did
erdahl choose such a strange ,ark?
t would he accomplish by his pr. )ect?

Puzzle of Central America
s aim was to thrbw some ligh. on a
h-debated question, namely, Is t -a re a
section between the civilization c : the
ant Mediterranean lands and the civi-
ion found by the Spaniards when they
hed Central America four or fiw hun-
years ago? The subject has occupied
y scholars.

friends also.


The Spanish conquerors or "conquis-
tadores" who crossed the ocean in the
wake of Columbus encountered something
more than primitive nomads. They met
capable scribes, architects, artists, astrono-
mers and surgeons in well-organized cit-
ies, ruled by sun-worshiping king-priests.
These had a calendar system more accu-
rate than that used in Europe. Their sur-
geons could patch up fractures, they could
embalm the dead, they could perform
brain operations. There were roads paved
with stones, enormous aqueducts and im-
pressive suspension bridges. There were
monuments, beautifully carved, pyramids
and other .magnificent structuree.
Seagoing Vessels of Reed
Vessels constructed out of reeds were
in use by American Indians along the Pa-
cific coast from California to Chile at the
time the Spaniards arrived. Such boats
were in use on several Mexican lakes too.
Similar types were common "from Iraq to
Ethiopia, across North an; Central Afric-:
to Chad, Niger and Morocco, and even in
Sardinia. -Hjemmet, December 2, 1969,
p. 7.
When the Spanish reached the Peru-
vian coast they saw many boats made of
thin reeds, bound in bundles, with elegant-
ly curved prow and stern, somewhat after
the fashion of the ancient Viking ships.
Some were large enough to take a crew
of -tw,:nty-feur, and thoy ~Th'-'d easily
through the surf along the coast of the
Inca Empire.
It was evident that papyrus vessels were
seawirtiny and could withstand a great
deal of pounding by the wind and the
waves. If such a craft could float :for m:i.
than two weeks on the waves of the Atlan-
tic, Heyerdahl believed, then the experi-
ment would also demonstrate the possi-
bility that Mediterranean mariners had
reached and influenced the cultural devel-
opments in America long before Column-
bus arrived.

BIG MIGRATION CONFERENCE TIN MARTINIQUE.

Under the presidency of Monsieur
Aime Cesaire, a tremendous conference
took place on 18-19th July in Martinique
Town Hall on the subject of migration to
France and the treatment of migrants
there. Our correspondent says the confer-
ence was boycotted by the Government and
that "a large display of police lined
the streets". The groups attending the
conference were the R.E.M. ( association
of Martinique migrants ), the Progressive
Party of M. Cesaire, the P.S.U., the
Communist Party, and the Unions. Two
Prominent journalists M. Jean Lacouture
of LE MONDE and M. Gerard Pons of COMBAT
were there, as well as several disting-
uished Barristers. There were also
delegates from Guadeloupe and one from
French Guyana, Dr. Hohachouk, who was
en route to France. A young Priest,
Father Permal, made a moving speech that
"Man, the image of Our Lord, should be
better considered and treated..."
The following main points were stated:
That the emigration policy of the
French Antilles had been deliberately
decided by the French Govt., not to solve
problems of overpopulation in an under-
developed country, but to help the French
economy which needed labour at a low cost.
Some speakers said the Antilleans died in
France after doing the worst jobs for the
lowest pay. 2500 people leave Martinique
every year, and there are said to be
60&,000 migrants in France.
At the same time, the speakers com-
plained, French people are coming to the
islands and they get much better condit-
ions than those meted out to Martiniquans
at the same level of qualification,
"Although we are a French department,
our workers going to the mainland are
treated like emigrants coming"from Spain
Jugoslavia, etc. We are French .'" said
one of the orators.
Another contention was that while in
France the regional French are encour-
aged to preserve their peculiar styles
of living, thinking and folklore, why
should the French Govt. expect Martin-
iquans to forget their identity and folk-
lore ? "TIe want the right to be French-
but with our own personality ." said the
speaker, and others declared that they
would "cut the ties and be themselves in
Liberty" if better conditions and atti-
tudes were not forthcoming. At the final
session on July 20th, in Lamentin Football
Ground, Mayor Gratiant made the concluding
speech and a group of fine actors gave a


TWITTERTALK by May.

So, this is the long-awaited holidays.
Surely only the teachers and pupils of our
community can look forward to them ? Much

Oh, the happy days when I waved them off

Maybe it's just the weather that's getting
me down, and along with the rain, the muddy
footprints on the floor, the leak in the
bathroom and the one bed the cat uses in
the morning. I stood and watched him do
it. He silently appeared at the window
and with a quiet plonk landed on the bbd
and proceeded to wash himself all over: the-
end result being one clean cat ready to be
greeted lovingly by HIM, one filthy bed-
cover and angry little me.
It must just be my imagination, but I
keep getting the impression that all the
children roundabout seem to prefer my house
to their own, and they always seem to be
hungry, or do the little angels plague all
the Mums in rota for nourishment ?
Rain, rain go away, and at least let us
start living our out-door life again, you
can come back when the schools go in 1

EJGIIOJAL ECONOMIC POL7CIES- by_ Androclcs (fron P.. 4)
Coring back to the land question, it is a fact of our history that on noro
thai one occasion foreign landowners have abandoned and dcscrtod their hold-
ings which have then gone cheaply to local persons, This is Dominica
o::oerionc .
I therefore think that we are in process of nakling another of our regional
errors in regarding as one community what is in effect a number of different
communities and att~p'ting to produce a uniformity of action aot dictated by
the facts of the situation. It is only this wook that Scnator Hector WVJntor
of Jzaxaica in opening a conference of British Caribbean delegates in that
country advised that we should got to know better one another's culture I
agrco with this view and draw attention to the connotation of -the word
"oQCr.turQ .."
As I was saying at the beginning of this pioo, i- is in' contexts such as
tholso that we need a Governnent which is able and killingg in the councils of
tho nations of the region to point out our different noeed, adnit with accu-
racy our lacls and shortconings and blow our trunpetm when the blowing is
indicated.

E X P A N D'-1 N:G H 0 RI Z. N 5 by ANDROCLES
There are a ffew items which-I wish to get off my columnist chest in
order too make way for the big events which IL csee developing in the
near future.
I. Has it occurred to Dominicans that their public life is bound to
be stultified since their human resources, in this line are not being
utilized? This aspect of things came forcibly to mind recently when I
read the composition of the Government's Agricultural and Industrial Loans
Committee. The-majority of the appointees, excluding Civil Servants,got
.their positions, clearly, by virtue of political adherence to the Party
in power. What is happening is. that .half the population and, I darei-
say, the more competent half--,which could be in, the public life of
Dominica has been -eliminated from service because it is known or believed -
that they do not belong to the political camp of the ruling Party. It is
my belief:- that this country cannot afford such an-unnecessary-waste of
this type of resource the.highest in any country: living human beings,
Such a- state of affairs has bean%; entirely brought on by those in power
for, the pa.st, Cdecade, -who are not big enough to realise that Dominica is
greate-'- t 'any political party.
,.his policy of confining opportunities of public service to party hacks
hash had- some strange.. and unhappy consequences. Thb~Jame names keep on re-
curring on' Boards or Committees of Government in a way which would suggest
omnic6mpetence... There.-is one particular hack who seems to make them all,
including the right to take part in the deliberations of a certain type of
institution all over the island. When, some time ago, there was a bit. of.
a public outcry against the personnel of the Banana Board and attempts
were made to introduce new blood-into its composition for the sake ,of
trying to. save the industry, the Government re-nominated the same political
adherents who, together with the continuously re-elected ones, had been
regarded as obstacles to a fresh look and 'outlook in the administration of
this vital industry. Thus the efforts of producers were stultified, while
the banana industry appears to be gaily careenitg.to its doom.
Such is the price which a community pays: for putting small-mindedneis
in its high places. And this is just one example.
II, Last September, the Government gave a display of its armed might
when the population contemplated demonstrating against certain undesirable
legislation about to be passed. One careless step on the part of the pro-
testers, and lives of citizens could easily have been lost. Such armed
might was, of course, provided by the Police and Defence Forces:.
I often wonder in what light the members of the Forces saw the protest-
ers on that day. Did they see them as a bunch of subversives bent on public
mischief and wanting to deliver Dominica into the hands of some semi-Com-
munist State? Or did they see the would-be c..demonstrators as the more
morally-sensitive section of the population, desirous of preserving freedom
and democracy for the population, which included the members of the Forces
and their families? Did they feel, for example, that Messrs. Leblanc and
Armour were more likely to be' preserving and conserving the long-
term interests of Dominica than the leaders of the Freedom Party who were
striving to maintain our ancient institutions like the Roseau Town Council
and to ensure that the sacrificial savings efforts of the people of Dominica
did not come within the greedy grasp of a notoriously wasteful Government?
Should the Police ever forget which Party it was that, a few years ago,
brought their grievances to public notice and consequent remedy?
But what do members of these Forces say now that they have seen where
the Government leaders, except for the intervention of the same Opposition
leaders of 23rd September, would take this country? Do they now realise
who was.acting democratically and whoQwas not?- Are their souls so dead that
they cannot to themselves say: "This is my.,own, my native land" as the
Premier attempts to trade them and us to unhappy Guyana in the holy name of
political integration? ,. (Concluded on Page Four)

Expanding Horizons by Androcle:s (from p.2).. Are they aware that if the
declaration of Grenada were permitted to be consummated as far as Danmica
is concerned, a distinct possibility is their use as cannon fodder when
Venezuela and Surinam proceed to enforce their territorial claims on Guy-
ana ? Are. they desirous of extending the influence of Communist Russia
or Red China to Dominica ? As they look at the events bn and just before
September 25rd in .retrospect, who., was right and who was wrong. ? And if
the Premier attempts to impose his point of view in this matter against
the clearly and forcefully expressed wishes of the people, as citizens of
Dominica who will be right and who will be wrong ? Would their attitude
in this matter still be: Theirs not to- reason why ?
III. I am not one to allow dust to be thrown in eyes when I am around.
Caught in the network of their untruths, the writers of the "Educator'
had stated -- against the evidence of thousands present -- that Mr.Moise,
Leader of the. Opposition, was not present at the huge public meeting of
13th November when the Opposition Leaders from the various islands add-
ressed the people- on Freedom Street. Now aware. of this outrage to public
sense which this patent. untruth occasioned, the Editor in a lame way now
says in his issue of 24th November that it was not public meeting he meant,
but press meeting. Which would still. be a lie because Mr. Moise was clearly
and visibly present when the Press Conference, which amounted to nothing
more than the formal handing of a copy of the Opposition Leaders' State-
ment to representatives. of the Press, took place. "Oh, what a tangled
web we weave, when first we, practise to deceive"' The reading public is
furious over this yet further attempt at deception.
This spirit of deceit., so characteristic of the Leblanc Shoe Party,
was continued on that Party's political platform on Freedom Street o'n the
night of 22nd November. Times, however,, have changed and this meeting fell
flat amid the jeers of those present.
Speakers attempted to convey that it was not correct to say that local
public opinion had not. been consulted in the sell-out to Guyana, since
provision has been made in the Grenada Declaration to do so. Now quite
apart from my asseveration in a previous piece that I saw and heard the
Premier on television assert that Dominica will enter the contemplated
union despite what others' do (and I believe that the public will believe
me rather than Armour and Francis), the whole tenor of the Grenada Dec-
laration makes it. abundantly clear that the thing, was a fait accompli in
the minds and intents of the authors. "The new Constitution will be prom-
ulgated on April 22, 1973, and elections will be held throughout the (nhe)
State by June, 30, 1973". (Section (i)). Is this an act contingent upon
public acceptance of the scheme? And, more simply, if it were intended to
consult public opinion in advance, why not before the expensive and elab-
orate. step- of formal conferences, complete with batteries of experts?
Why not a sounding of the views of the Parliamentary Oppositions before?
"A Preparatory Commission will be set up by November 30S, 1971, to prepare
for the establishment of the new State". (Section(a)). Does the Premier
first decide upon Dominica becoming part of a new State and then proceed
to consult the people? Neither should we forget that the Premier has stated
thaet.he has no intention of holding 'aReferendum, the most accurate means
of determining public opinion, but is, prepared to use the. constitutionally-
required two-thirds of the elected votes in the House which he controls
to bulldoze Dominica into union with wretched Guyana -- if the people per-
mit this to be done. Would this, be consulting public opinion? One of the
greatest among the many lies to come out of the recent Roseau public meet-
ing of the desperate Leblanc Shoe Party is that negotiations leading to
the ill-fated 1958 Federation were done in similar secrecy. This is absol-
utely untrue and such an untruth we would expect fQom a baxd.of adventurers.
here were numerous conferences& and meetingsat ch Dominica sent a
varied umber of representatives (like, the late Clifton Dugny and Austin
Winston) and discussion covered the: period from.. 1947 the ate of the Mon-
tego Bay Conference. It was pitiable, I understand to see the strange
osturings wich took place on the oblanc Party platform last Monay night.

IN THE CABINET (from Chapter Nine)
Extract from a work in progress by Phyllis Shand Allfrey. Printed in
tribute to SIR GRANTLEY ADAMS.
It was Tuesday, Council of State day. Normally on Tuesdays, instead
of going to the Ministry, I would telephone to find out if there were any
urgent matters for me to deal with, and if not, Nicholas (my Dominican
driver) would take me straight to the Governor General's house. On this
day I summoned Nicholas early and we drove to the Ministerial Buildings,
then known as Federal House. He deposited me and my portfolio, which al-
ready felt like a sack of stones, in the narrow alleyway which served as
a parking-place. Two Members of the Federal Parliament were standing in
the sunshine beside a car, their backs turned; as I moved into the shadow
of a doorway I heard the Prime Minister's name spoken low,and something
in the tone of the speaker, some note of derision, held me there. I heard
the M.P, say: "Yes, he recovered. It would have been sordid to die of a
bad foot."
The other M.P. said: "Next time it might be a proper thrombosis."
"Oh come, come," said the first Member. "You must nt wish sudden death
even to a Colonial Office stooge."
The other parried, "All I want is to see this tomfool weakling Gov-
ernment crack up. As it will, soon. I don't care how."
"With their ,majority, one vote of no confidence in the House..."
said the original speaker.
"Or the defection of one or two Feds or better still, of a Minister-"
They came around the corner, and there was something in the tenseness
of my bearing which warned them. They fell silent, mumbled good morning
and entered the lift. I went up the stairs, dragging my leather case.
What I had heard had filled me with wild indignation; why had,these, men
got themselves elected to a Federal Parliament if so early in the day they
wanted to see it die or its 'leader die? I tried to be detached and
indifferent. This was impossible. I knew it was more important to be a
human being than to be a Minister of State.
The Governor-General's house was a noble grey-stone mansion set amid
spacious lawns and dominated by a marvellous ancient saman tree. The coun-
cil chamber there, in which we held our earliest meetings (until we became
an independent Cabinet) was like a large dining-room, frigidly air-condit.
ioned. The Governor General suffered intensely from our tropical heat.
His bearing was handsome, debonair and formal, and he disliked the casual
unpunctuality of many West Indians, not excluding some of the Ministers.
On this day the Prime Minister was-alarmingly late. We all began to
feel embarrassed. After a wait of nearly three-quarters of an hour he came
in, walking very slowly, unabashed looking. He apologised in his courteous
deprecatory voice.
"I'm sorry, Your Excellency. I had to go to a funeral."
"I'm sorry, too," said Lord Hailes, his features hardly relenting.
"You see, I suddenly heard...There was an old white man -must have
been over eighty if a day. He died yesterday. Used to be my schoolmaster.
Died very poor. I heard of the burial late, and felt I ought to go. So I
followed the coffin."
I had forgotten to take off my dark glasses, and now removed them to
turn my already melancholy gaze full on the Prime Minister, who was stretch-
ing his poor sick foot and picking up his pen. He wasi smiling, just the
way Sese from La Plaine smiled when she was deeply sad. I heard him mutter
in an aside: "One of the best teachers I ever knew." His voice was full
of authentic affection.
I hastily put my glasses on again... The President was saying:"Arising
out of the minutes, I understand there is a correction --"
There it was, the implication of 'universal love' which overshot lim-
itations of race, social status, and personal discomfort. The Prime Minis-
ter of our uneasy little near-nation, a sick man, had risen early to attend
the funeral of a poor old white man who had been a teacher; trudging after
the bier to incur the displeasure of his colleague the Governor General,
another white man. I realized then more clearly than ever what the P.M.stood

for, and heard with new consciousness the voice of the enemy in the
alleyway:
"Better still the-defection of a Minister."
In the break for coffee, the supremely loyal Jamaican Minister we
all called "Teacher" spoke to me. "Why so .serious? Have you been to a
funeral too?"

ON THE SCENE ... by RAMA *
"'Tis the season to be jolly, tra-
la-la." You may not be singing that
tune and mean it, if your home or
business gets burglarized during the
next few weeks. Sleight of hand art-
ists and not so sophisticated follow-
ers of the thieving trade are on the
loose; money is short and goods; are
dearer and they are out to get YOU.
A light left on at nights if you
do have to pop out for a short while
nay work dividends. You are probably
around the corner saying hullo to a
neighbour, and all thieves are out of
their environment when there is ade-
quate lighting. Or said helpful neigh-
bour may decide to keep an eye on
things for you and call Police -22221
But whatever precautions you may take,
the chances of your being robbed are
still very high* Desperate men and
youths take unwarranted risks; desper-
ate thieves are willing to take even
greater chances. But I feel pretty *
afe. I have a varnished "manche-pillcn"
*eady for emergencies such as these.
*** Lately quite a few motorcars have
caught fire. It would appear from the
facts that the area leading out of
town (northerly direction) is the
favourite incineration point.Suspic-
ious insurance companies are sniffing
around.

Dominica or Gragada for Popham
It DOES NOT matter who wins today
match between St. Lucia & St.Vincent
because: the final winner will be de-
ciMed on Saturday when Dominica, and
Grenada clash. Each side have won
one and drawn one, whilst the 'Sairnts
eseh have, a draw.
One of the most exciting matches:
of the week was on Wednesday when
Benoit. scored against St. Lucia in
the 4th minute of play. Then the
home team really had to withstand a
furious onslaught as the St Lucians
bashed their way through to the Dome-
itican goal, firgt; the equalizer
and then ahead b# one goal and the
second half nearly over. Then came
through Dasmond Dewhurst with a fine
piece of position play which found
th e defenee. on the wrong foot and
the ball in the net for an equalizer.
The last few minutes (extra time for
injuries etc.) found our boys ham-
mering away at goal and only a
clear into' touch saving tthe goal:
believe. it or not there were 4 cor-
ners taken by Dominica in the same.
number of last minutes, some fine
defensive work with the head being
the:.'successful saver of defeat, the
ball only being cleared from the St.
Lucia penalty area as the. whistle:
blew,-time,.
The match against St. Vincent wasa
a cleancut victory with some lovely
work by Desmond Dewhurst again who
prepared every one of the three goals,
kicking .thefirest-! penalty (the
second goal was finished by Brinsley
Cha.rles after -.Dewhurst hit the
uprighttwith one of his; special
intercontinental ballistic missiles
from 30 yards out). Even St.Vincent's
gallant goalie, Soso, looked scared.
Charles got the third goal from a
Dewhurst cross, beat two men and,.
pushed-'a. low one into. the corner
Grenada started off the series
with a 5-2 victory over St. Lucia
on Saturday, but was held to, a 1-1
draw by St. Vincent on Tuesday in
a very exciting match.
If Dominica have kept up their
training, early- to bed and no fetes,
and play the kind of football they
played last Sunday they should carry
off the Cup from (Grendda, who have
held it now for four years.

home parishes, beautifully produced
as may be expected. Congratulations.
