'Page. Two THE STAR Friday, June 25. 1971

Organized youth in 'Trinidad has given a. rebuke to Dr. Williams, the
Premier, which reflects considerable credit on the young people of that
country. It is based on logic and commonsense and I have no doubt that in
his heart of hearts, Dr.Williams' resye-t for them, has soared. I wonder
how, under similar circumstances., the yotu ~ -t Dominica would react. I
cannot be sure, but as regards their elders --- 'o judge by local perfpmn-
ance I am convinced that they would have taken the Government's bait -
hoofi lin and sinker.
It may be recalled that, exactly as was done in Dominica on three sep-
arate and reasonably proximate' occasions, the Government of Trinidad re-
fused to enfranchise the 18-year-olds in time for the recent General
Election. I :do not know what reason, if any, the Government of Trinidad
gave for its refusal. In Dominica, the Government stated that youth was
not sufficiently-well developed mentally to exercise the franchise and
that to give the vote to 18-year-olds would be disastrous.and cause div-
ision in the schools, based on Party politics,
In both Trinidad and Dominica, however, the Governments having, won the.
General Election, immediately turned back on their tracks and by their
actions showed- and proved that they were acting in the worst possible bad
faith when they refused the franchise to: the young people, In the case of
Dohiinica. and even on the eve of the Election when no longer possible to
S--en-franchise the 18-year-olds, the Government announced that if returned
i4 jul-d do so in time for the vote to be exercised 5 years from that date.
S^i neeting of the House soon after, the Government affected to intro-
duce legislation towards that end. But in Trinidad the Government found
itself on a limb whuen, completely sweeping the polls, there was as a con-
sequenee: no Leader of the Opposition to nominate (as required by the Con-
stitution) 4 Opposition Senators for appointment. In his predicament, Dr.
Williams, after a round of refusals elsewhere, turned to the federation
of youth organizations and offered it to nominate from among its members
2 of the Opposition Senator's. In reply, the federation's executive said
that. if the youth had not been found by the: Government a short while
earlier worthy and capable of exercising the franchise to elect represent-
atives, how could they now be considered fit and suitable not to elect
but .to- be representatives? Against such logic, there. can. be no comeback
and thus "the whirligig of time.bqings in his revenges".

Despite the considerable inerigae in the numbers of the local Police
Force, the maintenance of law and order is patently on the decline in Dom-
inicai. At a time when salaries and conditions of service of the Police
Force have been' vastly improved, the public sees lawbreakers having the
freedom of the city. Why is this? Not long ago'I wrote in this column
that when the history of these. times comes to be written, it will be re-
corded. that the worst thing which ever happened was the calculated deflect-
ion of.,the impartial loyalty of the Police Force to partisanship towards
the Leblaae Labour Party. This has had repercussions of a far-reaching
kind whichIT' is likely to shake the local structure to its foundations.
It is an obvious and well-known fact that the streets of Roseau, even
by day, are' made unpleasant for young girls and white people by groups of
men positioned at various points. Nothing is done by the Police authorit-
i6,Q.ev, put an end to..this nuisance. Drivers of cars speed and roar as they
"like on the streets of Roseau despite the laws which exist, and the main
road of Goodwill is one of the worst in this danger to other persons,
drivers and'pedestrians alike. Private citizens see all this: not the Police.
The latter is more concerned with whether) a. car is parked below the regul-
ation distance.from the corner of some remote side-street.
Language of the vilest and filthiest kind is commonplace on all streets
and public roads, certainly in the town of Roseau, but the Police is more '
concerned with reporting and covering meetings of the Opposition Party so
that their political masters may know- what is the criticism of them.

pRPFORMANjE AT GIRAUDEL by Addrocles (Continued from Page Two)
Owners of stolen;goods-find it more economical of time to let things
be than to-seek help from the Police. Ror, to begin with, they must file
Sleisurely-'cmposed report before any immediate or emergency action is
taken. On '.,op of all. this, we now hear widespread rumblings of charges of
Police, brutality. I am not in a position to confirm or deny these alleg-
ations, but it is disturbing, that they should be made at all.
The popular explanation of this state of affairs is that the Police
must not interfere unduly, lest in so doing they cause support to be. lost
to the.ruling Party. This explanation is not as ftar-fetched as it sounds
because there is now definite proof that one Minister (no longer one) in
the last tabbur Government issued verbal instructions to Town Constables
not to enforce Regulations lest that affect the Party politically at the
then forthcoming General Election. I am not suggesting that the Police
have such instructions, but it is .qite possible that 'Party-political'
as so many policemen have openly become, they know the minds of the bosses
and are. playing as more royal than the Queen. There are many persons of
the opinion that before the thing, goeq any further, a competent and impart-
ial Commission of Enquiry should be appointed to allay the fears of citi-
zens and weed out such delinquents as may be discovered in these unaWol'.-
esome practices,
The cool upland village of Giraudel last week held an Achievement Day.
This occasion is one intended to display the accomplishments and improve-
ments in the village and in the individual villager's ways of doing things.
So the village is "at home." to friends and well-wishers.
Among those present on this occasion were the elected representative
bf the area in the House. of Assembly, Hon.Anthpny Moise, who is also the
Leader of the: Opposition; also a number of government Ministers, includ-
ing Mr.Armour, Minister of Finance. At speech-time Mr. Moise did his stuff
in the approved way, naturally referring to the achievements of the vSllage
and offering encouragement and congratulations. Mr. Armour, however, and
not unexpectedly for him, preferred political controversy and so, called
upon, to address the gathering, he launched into a tirade against the Op-
position for bringing the recent Government "refund" of $10,000 to light.
He read from a prepared text and one wonders whether this is new tactics*
Normally in such situations, Mr. Armour would have taken to the air on
WIBS in an attempt at refutation, but bitter experience in coming off
second best in the ensuing newspaper analyses has perhaps made a wiser
man of him. In any case, the main point he made in his defence was that
Government had also done the same thing as regards the Fort Young Hotel.
Is this a new game im confining refutation to small rural gatherings where,
perhaps, his bubbles may not be so easily pricked? For Mr. Armour to refer
to incentive legislation applied to an hotel as a. justification for sim-
ilar treatment to a cinema is worse than disingenuous. It is a comparison
of dissimilarsFor there is a law passed in 1958 relieving hotelg all
hotels -- of paying import duty on materials of constructionpetc. This is
a specific measure to encourage the development of the hotel industry and
all hotels art entitled to this; concession. There is no such law as regards
cinemas. Not even the general Pioneer Industries law applies since, as the
title implies, this aw may be applied only to original ventures,hitherto
non-extbtent here. This cannot apply to the cinema industry of Dominica,
otherwise the concession would have been extended to the "Arawak" Cinema
opened only in 1969. And -even to apply the general discretional power
which the Government has, in remitting (for good reasons) import duty applied
to one concern and not to another of the same kind, raises the same suspic-
ions. I can well remember an occasion onlt a few years ago when the same
Government refused to remit the import duty on a truck which OXFAM had given
to the Social Centre for transporting the free foods given to the poor in
all the villages of Dominica. How can you refuse it for such a purpose and
then grant it for a commercial venture which, by all accounts and bearing
in min. the business acumen of the proprietor, is algtag. s success? ( In
fairness, I must add that the refund on the truck was granted when OXPAM
threatened to stop all grants to Dominica). (F ial paragrgah on nage 12..)
