; EPILOGUE !TO THE GREQADA DECLARATION by ANDROCLES
When. your Preiemei', unmindfuli of the aphorism "litera scripta manet",
takes to print as he does in 'a pamphlet on the 'Gren a Declaration, he
opened himself to the iul'-blaat of the criticism of those with the.abil-
ity and the strength of character .to',criticize. Let me add that it is an
act of false pretence to use Government. material and auspices to produce.
publication so evidently un-Government in its partisan and personal
approach, as the following, excerpt indicates:
(page 5) "We hear mor, payers being offered for our freedom from
lips controlled by minds which are ..more concerned with personal,
: i'aterial benefits .than the: salvation of souls, io wonder prayers
from certain lips create a hollow sound." Whatever all this means
and: to "whomsoever it refers, it is certainly not what one expects
in a Government publication. Moreover, this man should keep his
religious (?) philosophy to himself. Incidentally, a civil servant
is guite. mwong to "commend to the public for the minute scrutiny
that it deserves" a publication containing statements andj reflect-
ions of which the foregoing ,is merely one. This is what the Public
Relations Officer has done in a kind of Foreword.,
As I was saying, your Premier has left the safety and success of his
platfo6ra~ to' om-';i-nt- J-pr'fat. m-th-a kind of epilogue to the Grenada De-
claration. He must take what he. gets.
Thea thing which most struck me about his epilogue was his reference
toa.certain books. He has named four, of which I have read only one: "The
Godfathe'". This is; a book which deals with the. activities of the Mafia,
*He names -another, "Syndicate. abroad", I have not read this book, but
judging o.. dm the title, I asi sure it also deals with some similar gang.
SThi-s is~omst interesting. We have the Premier giving away -'uncoiseiou,.-
.sly -- a .favourite topic. 'The sharp of mind will read much into this. '
i"The-Godfather", the only one I have read of those listed, has nothing
whatever to do"in fact or in spirit with political unidn or association.
,It may, be-a case of atavism.
From the historical facts which the Premier has adduced to show the
repeated-failure: of political federations of all kinds in tlhe: history, of
these Caribbean territories, he: fails to draw the obvious conclusion,
vizi that they are not yet ready for this step. Not even the withdrawal
of his cronies from the. secretly hatched. conspiracy -- Messrs. Gairy,
'Compton, Cato -- an make him see the folly of contemplating political
federation at this time. Here one may ask him bluntly whether he thinks
he is a better man in any respect than the three just mentioned. Most
people dc not think so,
Mr Leblanc cannot even discern the excuses given by the withdrawers
andi the; keep-outs for what 'they are. The refrain of being unable "at this
stage", "for the time being", to take part in a federation given by so
many Caribbean territories clean eludes him as expressions of unconcern,
lack ofi iinterest.'-What 'indicates to him sympathy for the cause are TrinU-
.idad:'s "ble:ss.ing-by offering- fifteenn thousand dollars 'and the services of
a technicrat"; Barbados.asking for and obtaining Observer Status; Belize
"giving, it their blessing". What a deluded man to think that himself and
Bradshaw (who, however, knows what he really wants, viz. Anguilla) -- two
short-haired prophets -- are. the politicians in the whole area who see
the cleares.t into the future, Burnham himself mowing what he wants by
way of negro votes. So who -is the sot? What monumental conceit, presump-
tion and arrogance Well has it been observed that these qualities Vary
in inverse ratiio to the physical size, of those in. wmhom- they are embodied,
Now we know why Mr Leblanc does not pursue the obvious form of polit-
ical union, that between the Associated States. He says that "inter-islhad
di-iferencles make- it virtually impossible for the. Associated States to.
get together politically"' If similarly-placed and similarly-developed
units eannoto unite, is. it likely that one with a vast difference a
Preponderance: of people- of. a different race will associate political
on a'basis of epoalitE_. (concluded on page four)

With iower patterns sparkiibg on the greea,

To share a drink and break a crust of, bread;
Their lives in cities being burdensome,
They seek they know not what a dream perchance.
There are no seantres n the grassy drive,

It's afternoon and good to be alive
Ambng the torrents, trees and beasts and birds
In an enclave too beautiful for words.

EPILOGUE TO THE GRENADA DECLARATION : by ANDROCLES from page two
These are big subjects, Mr. Leblanc! Your genius lies in brainwashing
uneducated minds. But now you will not even get success in that familiar
line.
I now want to quote some of the more obvious stupidities of the epi-
logue (which appears as a prologue in this pamphlet). He says that in
the past "Colonial Office stooges co-ordinated their efforts to ensure
that there was minimum intercourse, political and social, between the
peoples of the area". From which one would have concluded that when West
Indian bosses succeeded to the thrones, inteoisland passport require-
ments would have been abolished immediately, deportation of Bobby Clarkes
ceased and Jagan visits welcomed. But have they?
Then we have this classic: "Dominicans., thank God, have gained
freedom under the Labour Government". Shades of the Seditious Act, the
Banking Act, the Roseau Town Council emasculation and attempted dissolu-
tion; the Grenada Declaration; the proposed law to compel banana growers
to cut and offer their bananas at any price offered and for workers to
be obliged to load such bananas on the ships!
And now this ultimate in dictatorship: "It must be appreciated that
Government would not.be _act ag.Jn a responsible man.ae3..if we, were to geo- -
to... our public to tell them that we think the West Indies -or the East-
ern Caribbean should seek political unity without being able to set
guidelines as to what should be done towards this end", 0 Yeah.! not even
to seek their acquiescence in principle as to whether they want it at all?
What did Dr. Williams say on behalf of Trinidad as regards the very in-
itial stage? He said: "The Government of Trinidad and Tobago cannot
contemplate any such commitment....without fullest possible consultation
with"the people". He did not say, as Leblanc would interpret it, that
Trinidad and Tobago agrees to look into the matter, after which the people
will be consulted. No. From the st'rt the people must be consulted as*
to whether they would contemplate such a union. If they did not, then
obviously there would be no point in entering into discussion at all.
Moreover, does the search for such guidelines prescribe that the date
of promulgation and of elections in the proposed new State should have
been determined and stated? It is therefore plain lying for the Premier
to write: "We have not decided whether a union will take place at all"
unless he thinks that the decision only takes place when John Royer puts
on his long coat and Leslie his short shirtjac to say "Aye" in the House
of Assembly, If it is now not decided whether or not there will be a new
State, it is only because the people of. Dominica arose in wrath to say
there will not and must not be. And here lies the Premier's dilemma and
the necessity to write this pamphlet. Pursuing the same thought, one
might ask why this resistance to a referendum? Can one imagine Leblanc
refusing it if, as used to be the case in the past, he felt sure of
coming out on top?
I still have a very interesting quote. Referring to the Opposition,
he says: "They are still living in the 1940s when few people in the coun-
try knew-Roseau and-vice-VersE, when radio was unknhvne, when 'he percent-
age of illiteracy was so high that only a handful of people went to the
Library, when the order of the day Was for everybody to learn by rote the
latin (sic) on one side of the mass book without understanding the Eng-
lish translation on the other side. "(I would dearly love a well-qualified
psychologist to examine this man to determine the source of his-inverted
preoccupation with the other world.) I cannot understand the object of
this interjection here apart from the fact of his describing the condit-
ions of his own formation. Again, is this commended by the P.R.O.?
Leblanc asks this question: "Why was the Guyana Opposition so con-
spicuous by their absence from the Conference convened by the Opposition
Parties?" (The same conference of which his lying mouthpiece said the
cost of passages and hotel accommodation in Dominica were paid for visit-
ing delegates by the Dominica Opposition). The answer-was: given by Mr. Le-
blanc clearly and unequivocally last month when he banned the landing of
Dr. Jagan in Dominica. The Opposition is smart enough to have anticipated
what Guyana's young people dubbed "a despicable act" by Dominica's Govern-
ment. ... I stop here for the time being, but may come back to it.

ON THE SCENE by R A M A*** (p?7)
Quite reQently :about four workmen
came by and sprinkled the area with
chips. By the end of the same day
spe eding drivers had scattered the
whole b----y mess. It takes money to
pay those workmen. It takes money to
buy and haul those chips. It is YOUR
money.
When I see what power has done to
certain individuals, I shudder at the
metamorphoses they have undergone. I
delight in the rags-to-riches theme,
but I detest the god-almighty import-
ance attached to certain ministerial
posts. A word of caut4= to such asp-

Jamaica, where Michael Manley swept
the polls this week, and don't be com-

is a peaceful change. Sometimes thh
oppressor ends up dismally. In his hey-

Fiction MA T I T I N E
by Cynthia Watt
On Tuesday Garge met an old com-
pere, Seaford, and they decided to
make a day of it.
"Garge, it good to see you boy.

school dirty, without books, without
socks and without ties? Are those
parents trouble-shooters?
