THE 1 9 7 2 B U D: G E T1 ADDRESS by ANDROCLES
In the Government's 1972 Budget .- "the biggest Budget ever" we
see that out of a total of $25 millions, the goodness and generosity of
the British and Canadian Governments account for over $8 millions. How
childish, therefore, appears the boast of "biggest Budget ever" when it
is thanks to friendly Governments the Governments of countries often
lambasted by our Ministers and all manner of epithets attached to them,
e .g. "stooges", referring to British Government officials, by the Pre-
mier in his erudite volume on the Grenada Declaration. However, it now
seems that our perennial donors are getting a bit tired of this and of
the way in which their grants are spent and they are now tightening up
on the procedures and methods of spending the monies given. They are very
late and remiss in this. Let it be stated here that our Government dep-
ends entirely on the generosity of such countries for all new develop-
ments in this State, e.g. roads.
I agree 100% with the remarks made by Hon. W.S. Stevens in the House
of Assembly about the presentation of the Budget. Monkey-like, the Gov-
ernment must needs adopt a format so irrelevant to us but used, I suppose,
in other more sophisticated communities:. Just fancy a section on the
"World Economy" (alternative manoatary systems, refugees of Bangladesh,
etc,) and another on the "European Economic Community" ... and to show
the irrelevance of all this, no further reference is made to them in the
main parts of the Budget Address; which interest us -those on the Domestic
Economy.
It is good to read an open confession of the Government: "More care-
ful study will be made in future, not only of the performances promised,
but of the planning, management and financial resources of foreign in-
vestors". Do readers recollect how in this column in in the pages of one
of our contemporary newspapers (certainly not the other), the Government
has been consistently taken to task for its naivety in offering concess-
ions to unknown and fly-by -night investors? For example, the S I P A
bubble where the Government had in fact agreed to hatch off the Cabrits
from the mainland of Dominica? Or as regards Dom-Can, in allowing it to
cut down our forests without the precaution of in~mediate planting of new
trees to prevent erosion -much to the horror of conservationists? It ib
a characteristic of this Government that their concessions' are reserved
only for foreigners or for friends. They refuse the Citrus Growers of
Dominica the concession of exemption to their lenders from income tax on
the interest of a loan to enable a large modern citrus packing house to
be set up, but the same concession was; given to Dom-Can (R.I.P.): Item:
they.prefer to allow Peebles Park to remain an eyesore and eess-pit of
Roseau rather than sell at a realistic price to the adjoining hotel.
Incidentally, I am surprised that those who thought the Government was
right in holding on to Peebles Park are taking no steps to insist that
something be done about it to make it usable as a public ground. Well
indeed does the Government need to undertake "more careful study", and
this not only as regards foreign investment!
The public of Dominica is now warned to take note of this remark on
page 9 of the Budget Address : "Members are aware of Government's inten-
tion to pursue the passage of Banking... Legislation during this session
of Parliament". In other words, Government is saying that it is,pro-
ceeding with its infamous Banking Act soon and the savings public is..
hereby alerted. It is irrelevant for the Government to say that it has
received the comments of bankers;, Bankers operate within the law of the
land and if Government says that the banks must hand over for "safekeep-
ing" Of% of their deposits, the banks need not be unduly worried since
their deposits are not their own money but that of the citizens. So
this statement by Government is no consolation or guarantee of safety,
One would have thought that the fuss made by the public when the Banking
Act was brought forward would have made the Government think again. Not
so. I therefore expect that those who know better will proceed to safe-
guard themselves. (Continued on Page Four)

STORM WARNINGS IN THE CARIBBEAN
(from page 1): The Readers Digest
'tells how th&t 'sunny playground' I
the Caribbean is now being affected
-by 'the harsh winds of discontent L
and unrest mentioning first politi-
cal tensions in Trinidad, -tear gas;
in Grenada and UWI students' talk '
of reclaiming resources from foreigzi
ers, restructuring, society and(at
times) of revolution. The Digest
thinks the label for such discontent
"black power i' Caribbean style" is
misleading, as the struggle is not
the samr as in the U.S.A. Current
Caribbean unrest, thinks this pop-
ular compreawed magazine, is a 6
question of HaveNots vs. Haves- (
"a fusion of labor, youth and racialJ
protest that emphasizes social jus-
tice and economic nationalism". The,
writers (Rowan and Mazie ) do not
see any CastrQ-ish plot to terroriae
tourists, seize property etc. They
say no powerful pan-Caribbean leader
has emerged; the movement represents
the cry of frustrated people for a
better life, self-respect and dig-
nity denied during colonial days.
"They are discovering that a black
man in the prime minister's office
doesn't necessarily guarantee. pros-
perity or tQtal independence," say
the.authors in the section. on econ-
omics, quoting from Prof.GordonLewis

.THE 1972 BUDGET ADDRESS Androcles (from page four)
On the s~nime ,'nbje&ct, the Budget Address tries to lie its way out of
the clear evidence that the proposed law. on banking embraced Credit
Unions., If."it was not the intention of the 'Government to include Credit
Unions"'(until, I suppose, it became aware of the fuss that the.Credit
Unions- with their large voting'population was making), why were they, in-
cluded within the ambit pf the proposed law -- a fact not denied by the
Government ?
A strange. attitude: .the Government looks at the depression which is
"aees yo over this country due to the- decline in bananas chiefly and, pro-
ceeds to- estimate increased. Government revenue. .Either the banana indus-
try is not, in fact, depressed or the Government intends to raise duties
and taxes in the future in order to get more revenue in 1972 than it. got
in the preceding years. It.is' time the public call a halt to this Gov-
ernment 'nonsense and, -in the interest of reducing the ever increasing,
cost -of impnlnrted goods,. require Governrent. to reduce its ad valorem
rates of import duty and consumpion tax as: the landed prices of goods
"increase. The trade unions, in particular should press' for this. Much of
the wasteful marginal expenditure of Government can be eliminated. It is
my considered opinion that the Government's. focusing of attention on
shopkeepers in the-,matter of price control is a ploy for removing atten-
ttion from its part in increasing the cost of living.
SThe Budget Address contains these.statements:
"The Lumber Industry is all but shut, down".
"Pumice-production has also decreased".
"The banana industry, is facing its greatest challenge ever".
."ProductiobL of Oils and Pats have declined slightly".
"Toilet soap production declined"o
These are all .nhappy-features and forebodings.
S On. pag~ :12 it is mentioned that the nationall Radio Station" was one
project financed. from: the. General Development Loan 1i980/1982. This brings
to mind the strictures -- fair and accurate -- of Hon. W.S..Stevens on
the particular mannerr in.which this radio station is used by Government.
He was referring in particular..to'" the Government's invitation of Sir'
Gan.et* Gordon, the area representative of Geest Iadustries, to: use the
facilities:.of- Radio .Dominica t6 "put hell" uon Mr. Stevens himself and
thode organising the Farmers' Union which intends pressurising all those
co-ncerned: so. as to...get a better deal for banana growers. Mr-.Stevens was
able "to point. out that the facilities 'of Radio Dominiea .re granted
only to those, who toe the Leblane Party lineand that even: while the
Opposition got 42.4%. of the votes at the' last General Election as com-
pared with the Government's 46.7%, not once have'.the radio facilities
ever been allowed to any member of .the Opposition to make its point of
view known to the people of this State.-Surely, if-a representative of
Geest can.be allowed to discuss the.pres-ent, crisis of the banana indus-
try, the representatives of the Farmers: Union should be given at least
equal facilities, which they are not.
S"We believe. that the. youth of this State are its richest resources"
(page 153 of the Budget Address), Does the Government..really believe this,
or is it just a phrase recordaeto get youth votes in 1975 even though,
from the. pressures and representations. of the Opposition, the youth
should have. enjoyed the opportunity at the Election of 1970? If this
Government is sincere in its statement, how is it that during the whole
of its existence from 1961, despite a. continuous series of "biggest.
Budget ever-", despite continuous public' clamour, despite- urgent pleas
by perplexed Judges and Magistrates, in .spite of the hardships and in-
convenienceCs to which the public is: subjected, dcarpite the vast number
of comaratively unneeessary institutions that the Government has been
erectingrg, continuedd on pagR ive 7

e.g. Police Stations -that no men-

Home for children in need of care
and/protection or in danger of fall-
ing into delinquency? Let me bring
to your memory how this Government
plays party politics with the lives
and future of youth -"the State's
richest resources,". Just before the
last General Election, somewhere
around September, 1970 (the Gen.E1-
ection was in Oct. 1970), the Gov-
ernment, knowing well the public
clamour for such an institution,
leased "Mount St.Mary's"for a short
period and falsely told the public
that such a Home was about to be
started to take such youth off the
streets. From-Social Services a man
(now a Minister) was sent off on a
course. Having won the General Elec-
tion in October 1970, nothing mo e
has been hear and Mount St.Mary's
is now put to quite another use. We
now realise that there was hardly
any intention at the time of start-
ina off any such institution for the

We in Portsmouth (writes one of

that various delegations, some even
from the ranks of the ruling Party,
have been making various complaints
to Government, which is a good thing.
In Portsmouth there has been a demon-
stration of stulazik (Thursday last

protesting against a release heard
over Radio Dominica that the school
is "complete". The 3rd former got
hot over it, as the school is far
from being completed -they need'up-

the 3rd form, apart from several other
requirements. The students also held
a meeting to a packed hall on the

from the audience as a matter of
fact, the majority was in their fav-

ON THE SCENE *** by RAMA
Almost everyone is sporting a
revolver these days and sane-think-
ing people have a right to be con-
cerned. One wonders. on what pre-
text licenses were issued. One:
chap is; supposed to delight in
brandishing his weapon -in the
Ministerial building, of all places
He is supposed to have insinuated
that a certain party allegiance
helped in securing a licence.Some
other persons have two: one for
themselves, and the other for their
concubines. So they say .....
Are you in favour of nudism?
If so, don't confine yourself to
peeping over the 'Bath Bridge'.
On the way to Island House 'mod'
tourists have a good view of grown
men who strip to the skin in order
to wash their vehicles and them-
selves. I am not niminy-piminy
about nudity, but the people who
use that ramshackle wooden bridge
(which need a driver's total con-
centration and has lost more wooden
rails this week) do not always care
to view the anatomies: of Dominican
men, no matter how virile! Nor do
we want our little daughters to
lean out and stare. The worst time
is Saturday afternoon and the dis-
play types seem to come from the
Morne Prosper and Trafalgar areas;.
As a veteran car-washer, I object.
The publisher thinks I'm fussy,but
admits he seldom washes his jeep...
Some time last year I had some
flattering things to say about the
Barclays Bank girls. The feeling
has improved somewhat since the
1972 Carnival ,Queen is on the staff.
Right on, Isabella.
The talk around town is that the
only avenue of escape for tyrants
is by taking off in a helicopter.
What's that? Well, a heliport is;
under construction.at the new Pol-
ice Headquarters building!
It has been rumoured that a cer-
tain newspaper is paying town news-
boys not to sell rival newspapers-
object, the demise of the free
Press? And that Government Ads are
being confined to partisan public-
ations. Similar objective. But
don't forget that there are a lot
of other more public-spirited ad-
vertisers in this State. This; tac-
tic, if true, should put them on
their mettle for it will be up
to them to keep a free Press alive


AN ORIGINAL


THINKER DIES


Through the death of well-known
Roseau merchant Mr. Elias George, a
Dominican citizen of Lebanese des-
dent, the populace lost an original
thinker who had, however, been ail-
ing for a long while.
His interest in education was
particularly manifest in the fine
scholastic record of his son Emil,
and the many books and articles he
studied in the past. As regards
Mental Health, Mr. Elias George was
much concerned about the welfare of
mental patients, and joined the MHA
at.an early stage.
His daughter Ramona (Mrs. Dubois)
had arrived from America and was at
his hospital bedside, and his only
son Emil a distinguished barrister -
flew over from Jamaica in time for
the funeral at the Cathedral,
We best remember Mr. Elias George
in his mid-heyday as a keen debater
in arguments on world and philosoph-
ical affairs. Our sympathy to the
family he left behind. + + +

HOW THE CARIBS OF DOMINICA BECAME
CHRISTIAN : by Faustulus Frederick
The Caribs were uncivilized and
knew nothing about God. They had no.
religion or any fixed way of worship,
for in their language they have had
no word to define the term God. They
adopted and believed in two main thtigs,
the gobd and the evil.
The evil they called Manitou and
they believed it was the cause of
their misfortunes, so they prayed that
it might not molest them. They be-
lieved that the good is always good
and does not need their prayers, for
'the good always gives them what they
want without their praying for it.
For many, many years the French
Order had maintained Missionaries who
had studied the Caribs' language and
vwho lived with them. But though the
Missionaries tried to educate them by
teaching, catechism and prayers, the
Caribs did not fail to believe in
their two principles. However, they
did not always remain like that. More
and more Missionaries came, and the
Caribs --getting acquainted with them
-imitated their ideals and deeds.
They began practising Christianity
and in so doing they became, up to
this present day, what is known as
a Christian people. (Concluded _onp2.0)
