Page Two .. THE STAR:' Friday, March 51, 1972
CLARIFICATION by *Anerocles
This week I wish to comment -- and seek enlightenment on two
articles -hich appeared in our contemporary "The Dominica Chronicle"of
March 25.

The first relates to an item captioned "Opposition Papers to Lose
Government Adverts ?". The part of it which intrigues me is this: "This
Cabinet decision ... reportedly based on the laudable intention of try-
ing to keep down burgeoning advertisement costs, made partly7By the ia-
ereasing number of local newspapers". The phrase "to keep down costs"
has an intended economic implication which interests me and I wish
someone would expand on this.

The core of the matter is that the Government has decided that its
newly-founded Party newspaper -- the notorious' "Educator" -- will, in
future, get the bulk of Government advertising, such surplus as there
may be going to the'Dominica Chronicle". I had previously heard that the
"Chronicle" was turning down the offer and was showing solidarity with
the other papers. I am sorry I do not get confirmation of this in this
news item. Some other members of the Government and some of their sup-
prters have a pecuniary interest in the"Educator" and therefore, as in
so many other instances, they are using their offices to eirich them-
selves.

'The "Educator" is the youngest of the local newspapers. Its exist-
ence is to be reckoned in terms of weeks. Its circulation, raDdly dwin-
Sdling because of its policy, is the lowest of all. local newspapers, On
what grounds, then, can the Government deny advertising from the other
papers of wider"'circulation and longer presence in the community, i.e.
"The Star." and "The Herald", and concentrate it in the "Educator" ? Is
this not wrongly using the taxpayers' money for personal gain, direct
or indirect ?
What 'I wish to know is: what have burgeoning costs to do with the
matter and what is laudable about this; decision ? The advertisement rates
of the two favoured newspapers are not less than those of the penalized
ones; in fact I understand that \the rates of one favoured paper ape
higher than one of the penalized ones rates. Let me say at once that
there can be no objection to the "Chronicle's" inclusion. It is our
oldest newspaper. But why the exclusion of the "Herald" and the "Star"?
And why the "Educator" at all, for the: reasons already given? I the
rates of all the papers are more or less the same, to choose the one
with the least circulation in preference to ,those with with larger eir-
culations is deliberately to choose the worse in preference, for tihe
better and whosoever does such a thing is acting dishonestly.

I hope the citizens of Dominica, usually so unconcerned in matters
of national import, are realising what is happening in their land and
how we are gradually drifting towards the practices of totalitarian re-
gimes. I hope. too, that the business people, to whom I made scathing'
reference; last week, will note this new development and, if they can
muster the necessary strength, realise that it is their duty to even the
scales by. :concentratiAg, their advertisement in the rewspapers discrim-
inated against by Government for the unsaid reason that these papers
are acting as the barriers between the people and awould-be totalitarian
regime. The whole burden of my piece last week is apposite in the sit-
uation just discussed.
The other item mentioned in the. "Chronicle" of March 25 which in-
terests me- is to be found in the opening paragraph of the editorial
which dealLs with illiteracy in Dominica. The paper states that the requ-
est that something be done about illiteracy in Dominica usually falls
on deaf ears "because the concerned group or individual" (urging the
matter) "always seemingly fails to make abundantly clear"(cont. p. )

CLARIFICATION by.Androcles (from p.2) "the fact that such illiteracy is
is the major factor holding back our development".

Now this columnist claims to be:that individual (representing, as
the "Chronicle" seems to think, "the concerned group"). I have mentioned
this problem more often than any other contributor. I think Hon.W.S.
Stevens -wo'uld'be the next most frequent commentator. Once or twice I
have .tried to point out that illiteracy is a drawback to national dev-
elopment. But this to me is a reason secondary to the main one: that
literacy is good'in itself and illiteracy a great misfortune to the il-
literate, this apart from its effects on society. In other words, liter-
acy, like health, ought to be the heritage of all in recognition of
fundamental human rights and considerations. That illiteracy affects a
man adversely in his capacity of a production unit is secondary to the
consideration that it affects him as a human being, made to the likenese,
of God. I can therefore never 'rest contented while I see -so much of our
national resources wasted in marginal projects, while no attempt is made
to raise the level of those members of the human race in our midst lab-
ouring under the great misfortune of illiteracy and who, because of this
Disadvantage, remain prey to demagogues and crafty immoral politicians,
whaee devilish interest it is to keep fellow-citizens in this state,
while they mouth senseless phrases about gross bougs" and "petits bougs",
calculatingly keeping the "pe-tits bougs" in this position. For an il-
literate can never become a gross boug" and yet, those in the position
to remedy this, do nothing about it.

All this is not to say that I do not agree with the "Chronicle".
'I do. But since I appear to be the person 'referred to, I have tried to
make my position clear. Like the "Chronicle." have no doubt that an
illiterate makes; a. poor production unit, but prefer to stress his
humanity rather than his productivity..

tains, natural productions etc,
was first published in 1791. It had
particular relevance at the time: the
Island was a very recent Bntish
possession, having been a trophy of
the Seven Year's War in 1763 it had
heen recaptured by the French in the
American War, and was banded back
m 17X3.
The French would very much have
liked to--have kept Dominica. The

tion for Rodney's victor: off the

Saints bh the Brtish) was our only

Atwood did not like the French.
He saw them as his hereditary
enemies. Most of the white inhabi-
tants of substance were of French
descent a fact to make any member
of the Governor's Council uneasy.
He blames them for encouraging
slaves to run away and then. from

Sthe lines, in spite of an explicit denial.
it may well be that the French yoke
sat more gently on black shoulders
For Atwood reflectsfaithfully all the
opinions of Britons of his class at the
time on slavery -most blacks were
lazy, ignorant and idle, but were
none the less treated well and justly,
he claims.
What is df particular interest is his
account of te campaign against the
rebellious slaves. They used the terrain
with skill, having some notable chief-
tains, the most successful of whom
was called Bala. Finally, a special
tax was imposed by the legislature in
1785. which was used to provide
extra pay to volunteers from the
30th Regnment 0 Foot to hunt down
the rebels. Thl soldiers provided
what seems to have been a badly-
needed stiffening to the'colony legions
of whites, coloureds and blacks,
about 500 in all, who were put to this
work. Most of the rebels slipped away
in canoes in the end.
Only a few paragraphs are given to
the Caribs it would appear most
likely that, unlike the adventurous
Lahat, the Chief Justice never ven-
tured far to windward Indeed, from
his descriptions of the actions against
the runaways in the 'orest. Dominica
was not a place in his time for little
jaunts just to satisfy the curiosity
