SA U R E OL. i by ANDROCLES
Au revoir. Not mope than this, much to the disappointment of his
political opponents, is what I wish to say today to Edward Scobie who
leaves us next wee k for a temporary lecture and teaching assignment
with one of the leading universities of the United States of America.
Mr. Scobie will head the Department of Black Studies, a sub-Faculty daily
growing in importance and relevance on American campuses. He is very-
qualified to teach this'-sb-jec-t and it is also of interest to mention
that in the next month or two, his book "Black Britannia" will be pub-
lished, the subject., of this book also deals with a topic of interest to
the black man. It will be a history of Negro immigration into England in
the past centuries.
Mr. Scobie, who is the Mayor of Eoseau, has been, by his2.office,
the foremost figure: in the unnecessary controversy which the Governmeni
has thrust upon the Roseau 'pbwn Council, From the moment that Mr.Scobie
became the Mayor, he has accepted the challenge to maintain and protect
thh.ancient -rights of the city of Roseau, capital of Dominica, against
the incursions of the Leblanc Government. This,-as readers w.Ll know,
reached a high point on Thhraday, 16th Decembery, when the aroused citi-
sens of Roseau and, indeedi.-, of Dominica, gave a never-to-be-forgotten
sample of their determination to have an ancient institution reesected
when Government came up with a Bill to abolish the Roseau Town Council,
If the Government has not got the message, it is beyond hope and redemption
Scobie is and remains one of the main pillars of the opposition
Dominica Freedom Party. In some ways he is popularly regarded as the em-
bodiment of the Party and in this respect is often the whipping-boy, a
role which he accepts with equanimity. For he is no mearwarrior as thq
ruling Party knows to its cost. And because the history of the Opposition
Party is the history of the maintenance of freedom in Dominica against
the persistent efforts to .erode and undermine it, Mrs Scobie's contrib-
ution to the political we Ifare of his country has been outstanding. qWen
historians come to assess the significance of the events commencingwith
5th July, 1968, the name Edwaad Scobie is bound to find an honoured place
along with those of many of his colleagues and collaborators. So it is
not. -,strange that even .t.iayl while history is in the making, the rest
of the West Indies is looking with fascination and admiration at Dominica
as the bastion of freedom in these parts. Mr. Scobie shares a great deal
of this honour with his other colleagues.
No doubt, Mr. Scobie must find it hard to have to leave at this
particular moment when, as, it appears, important things are about to
happen in the political life of Dominica. He is aware, however, that all
those who remain will continue to press for the things for Which they and
he have stood, and that they are strong brave people So his very tempor-
ary absence will not affect the -edifice which together they have erec#,..
And should any crisis arise in which his presence is required, Scobie hac
promised to return immediately to resume the battle or to enjoy the fruiLt.
It is therefore in this spirit of self-assurance that we bid "au
revoir'l -to Ed Scobie today, letting him know what a great pillar of
support- for national regeneration we regard him. In his role of pilgr.r
towards: a better and happier Dominica .we are very much reminded of that
other Pilgrim: "Who would true valour see,
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be,,
Come wind, come weather.
There's no discouragemelnt-
Shall make hhim once relent
His first avow'd intent
To be a pilgrim.
Then fancies fleece away!
I'll fear not what men say,
I'll labour night and day
To be .a pilgrim. (Bunyan: "Pilgrim's Progress")

THE 'DEPORTATION' OF..ROSIE DOUGLA
On Wadda..Dec.8th at 8 pm,Roose-
velt Douglas of Dominica, out on
$14,000 bail pending an appeal 'in
the Sir Georg6 Williams tUiversity
case in Montrealzwas arrested in
Toronto, handcuffed and taken to
jail. No reason was given for the
arrest (says Douglas in a letter
to friends which was read at a re-
cent Black Power meeting at Good-
will Parish Ha2l) save an -order to
hold him and another man (Warren
Hart) from .the Minister of Immigra-
tion. Hart was deported to the U.So
and a deportation order issued ag-
ainst Douglas, who says in his let-
ter: "it is unheard of to deport a
non-citizen with no..previous crim-
inal conviction who is a landed
immigrant while he or she has an
appeal pending before the court."
Douglas contends that "they would
.force me to commit a crime by not
appearing at my appeal and by im-
-pl'ication .the reliable black people
'-who put up ~14,000 bail on iny be-
half would lose this-money."' (He
had promised his brothers and sis-
oters that on no account would he
engage in any activity,-which would
result in having-the bail money con-
fiscated. )Meanwhile other studentss
so far convicted in the S.G.W.Univ-.
case have been issued with deport-
ation orders. These.orders have
been appealed-i Bail for Douglas
'was.categorically refused in this
matter, upon directions from the -
Canadian Immigration Minister to
Mr.. Norman Chalmers, Director of
the Dept. of Justice, for Ontario.
Both provincial Govt. and Federal
Govt. are involved! Douglas's let-
ter is long, it attaaks'.' .Canadian
Imperialists' and racism as we may
expect under such tense circumstarxes
It also hits "the control of puppet
governments, in'the (WI) area such
as Gairy,CatoComptong,. Leblanc,
Shearer, Burnham, Barrow..and Willjam
-". And t:ends up by saying that nc
intimidation can defeat a people
