THE GENERATION GAP : by John Spector
A division of population into the young versus the.mature is
not a joke. I describe it thus rather than "youth versus age", be-
cause some of the young protesters or anarchists of today are as
bigoted and set in their ways as aged persons, and some of the mature
have the resilience and capacity to.. change of the young. and adaptable.
"He hath age, therefore he hath wisdom" is a Chinese saying dating
from Confucius (500 B.C.) thus it certainly antedates Mao Tse Tung.
I have never believed in il wholeheartedly. Some of the old are as
capable of foolishness and as stubborn as the very young. And their
chance of reformation is infinitesimal.
But this arbitrary division of the world into students and their
young and ignorant supporters (many of whom have barely achieved the
necessity of a full primary education, and whose knowledge in terms
of civilized behaviour is nil) against those who have arrived at
maturity, who are perhaps parents, who have carved out careers, who
have accumulated a precious vintage of experience this is an ugly
and unnatural thing, going against all the gentleness and solidarity
of that first of protective unions the family.
In Victorian days the family was so close-ranked as to be suffo-
cating. Rebellingagainst parental control seemed rare, or rather was
secret and furtive as if every family was a royal family, even when
poor. It has left its legacy in Dominica where even in tiny huts the
front or living room is still called 'the drawing room', and where
there is still a single standard demanded of virtue for most girls and
winked-at libertinism for the boys. But two world wars knocked down
the edifice of the claustrophobic family fortress, and now there is
a reaction of permissiveness which has its own triumphs and its own
The virus of 'youth against the elders' is not just a college
revolt against authority. It reminds me of a tale out of science
fiction, to which I am addicted. A kindly man and wife are walking
down a road. They come upon a group of good-looking young people and
greet them, smiling. Then they see the eyes of the youngstera,which
are like stones from a lunar planet. The youngsters cannot smile.They
don't seem to be human... And Ray Bradbury (that'U.S. master of the
science fiction form) once wrote a wonderful story of a small attract-
ive boy who was found wandering on a road by a married couple, who
gave him a home and love. After a few months with them he took off
again. Why? He was not really a child at all, but a little old man,
whom life or science had stultified in time. Whenever he was on the
point of being discovered for what he really wrs an interplanetary
monster he took off again, and got sheltered by other guileless'
childless individuals who still had what the boy had never possessed:
common warmth of human affection. Old-fashioned stuff' So the 'dear
little fellow' continued his pilgrimage of corruption,
Am I saying-that youths of today are monsters? No; but the cult
of youth revolt makes some of them near-monsters, for much of it is
not the rebellion of the young against discipline and authoritarianism
(that has always existed in various forms) but something artificial,
negative and organised. It is a sort of junior power cult with all
the attendant sterility that power cults propagate. I think that some
adults today are afraid of youth, just as in the past the young were
afraid of 'dominating'adults. It's a pity this world cult has come in
a special form to this excellent State of ours just when the elders
here are bending and conceding and trying to hand over a lot more
self-determination and liberty to the young, who"resist being con-
ditioned into trying to please.everyone, and want to be identified as
individuals". These last words in quotation marks were spoken to me
in explanation by one of the resistant young.

THE GEiNATIONi GAP by John Spector (from Page Tvio)
The form that what I have called an arbitrary division is
taking in Dominica,-is a peculiarly sad and dangerous one, for it
is blended with the Black Power struggle and cemented with a type of
class war; then odmes the big split and pushed (as it were against
their will) on the other side are the Christians, the humanists,
the maturely reasonable, the politically tested people who want to
see'change come with moderation, the whole assembly of "grown-ups",
"adults", "reactionaries" and the increasingly inapplicable names
they are called by the self-appointed avant garde.
We know that the intention of this loosely termed youth move-
ment is to persuade persons between the ages of 18 and 30 to opt out
of taking their responsibility as citizens, by refusing to vote in
the next general election. There are enough people in Dominica who
don't take enough responsibility already without adding to the civic
apathy by.encouraging a large amorphous mass of youthful and potent-
ially able people to stand aside and emit parrot cries of "Yo toute
c'est meme". We realise that the aim is an interval in which the
abstainers, growing daily a little older and.more vociferous, though
we hope not more violent, will have time to establish political bases.
But a lot may happen in any interval.
And we believe that there are enough young people between 18-30
in Dominica who will cling, not just to the faith of their fathers
or the dictates of their mothers who fathered them, but to their last
shred of good,.ordinary common sense.

In search of photographs for stamp designs, Minister C & Works

guides made a round the island tour by the U.K. Dom on July 20.Shots

-mountainside.in the shape of a snake; the steps are 4 ft. high, and
appe r to be natural (perhaps the result of erosion in that stony
area), but it is Es -art of Carib mythology. The Caribs say that
their chief Bishlen traced the snake to be of .African origin andits
impression.is raven-on the rdcks. Near St. Cyr at Tous Gemo,
the party was unable 'to get pictures of the alleged imprint of a
centipede and a couwess snake on the cliff face, because of a rising
sea..: It is claimed that at certain times the centipede shines like
gold, and.on a clear day one can see below the surface of the sea
implements and pots embedded in the rock, shining like copper. *
At Engine Hole'off Londonderry the Caribs claim that their forefathers
first lived in some six or seven caves with.arches of 'church doors'
when they first..came to Waitikubuli (Dominica of today). They have
been told that the main door of these arches required seven keys to
open it' Here again, rising seas did not permit the touring party
to get photographs.

Fiction :" MA TITINE by Cynthia Watt
People thought of Ma Titine,Baby
and Genelia as three lone women
who did good deeds and sometimes
peculiar deeds (as for example sow-
ing a forest in the town), but nev-
er thought of them as romantic.
Baby had long ago buried two hus-
bands (a sailor one who drowned and
a store-assistant who drank a rum
range at a feast); Genelia, the
slimmest and best-looking-of the
three,-iseemed to avoid men because
she declared they were treacherous
and liked too many contest. As for
Ma 'Titine, you all know how devot-
ed she was to her good rough and
generous husband Garge.
Maybe Ma Titine was over-deligh-
ted at seeing Reuben again, and he
iii turn was overjoyed at receiving
such a warm welcome; anyhow on one
blustery rainy Sunday morning when
bucketfuls fell down after inter-
vals of thunder, Reuben turned up
at her house carrying very care-
fully in his large right hand, not
a bottle of rum, not a ti-ton .,.
but a well arranged bouquet of tiny
Wild flowers tied together with
grass, which he had taken hours to
pick in the valley the day before.
He was all dressed up, too, and
seemed to have indulged in a bain
perfume, When he arrived the out-
side gutters overflowed like moun-
tain streams and the street was a
miniature lake.
Talk of surprise: Ma Titine
had never received anything like
that before. The little flowers
were so small that if she did not
have the brightest sharpest eyes in
the land she would have had'to put
on glasses .to see them. Axid ferns
too... She got out her mother's
breakfast cup with the gold scallops
and put them into it Very gently.
"Titine," said Reuben solemnly,
removing his cloth cap which he very
rarelydid. "Titania -- (don't
fall dead, that was really Titine's
baptismal name), "doan take it in
any bad fast or forward manner but
de fack of de mattah is dat when I
was sleeping cole in de ajoupa I was
dreamin of you."
"Way, way, look trouble!" cried
out Titine, alarmed. "A fat ole
married woman like me, An what aboul
Garge self?"
"To hell wid Garge," said Reuben,
"An what about Baby an Genelial"
gasped Titine. "An Eurillai"

THE STAR. Friday July 28 1972 n.6
"Titine doudou forget dem frens.
Is you an me alone important."
"No," said Titine stubbornly,
(but smiling a little just the same
for she was somewhat pleased with
the unusual situation). "I got a
good memry, I kyarnt forget nobody."
"Well Titine," said Reuben,
leaning over and giving her a big
squeeze, "you didn forget me when
I disparette, So...dem odders fah
away, Garge go about he bisness an
Eurilla has she life to live. An
is nobody bisness but we own. De
rain is a blessed rain, it goin
keep off dem female Baby an Genelia."
But hardly had he said those
words when there was an extra splash-
ing in the yard and a huge black
tent of an umbrella zoomed up with
Baby under it, and behind that a
longer thinner form in a blue trans-
parent raincoat, which was Genelia.
Reuben rolled his eyes to the ceil-
ing in resignation and the lady vis-
itors removed their shoes.Genelia
noticed the tiny bouquet. "My! Who
give you dese plant?" She complete-
ly ignored Reuben, whom she consid-
ered incapable of such refinement.
"Is a obeah man. A Pundit," said
Ma Titine.
Reuben rose to the occasion."An
he say'for her to count how many
colour in de bokay, an to count how
many flowah on de branch, an divide
de colour into de flowah and de
total make de letter of de alphabet
and de day of de mont and de year
when she true love coinn"
"Titine!" screeched Baby. "An
you pay for dat foolishness?"
"No," said Titine demurely. "I
doan pay nuttin yet."
Reuben downed the grog which was
Ma Titine's answer to a difficult
problem, put on his cap and said
"Titine," said Genelia, touch-
ing the wild flowers and sniffing
at them, "I nevah see something nice
like dat. Eef you doan like dem
gimme de little flowah."
Titine had to pretend and swal-
low her real feelings. "Why sure,
Genelia, sure. Take dem but doan
take away de cup is my dead
modder leave it foh me."
The two ladies stayed on until a
strong east wind blew the rain sea-
wards; then Genelia departed with
the wildflowers rapped. in a handker-
chief and Titine opened the letter
from 4arge which Baby had b~a 2veed.

*Those ystrious

Duti ess as G

itS functions are still vague, though it ap-
parently affects sexual development.
The parahtyroids, attached to the thy-
roids in the throat, reMguate .he calcium
and phosphotus content of i;he blood. They
seldom act up, but if not c,1' .L. hormone
is produced by these glands, the concen-
tration of calcium in the blood falls and
the amount of phosphorus rises. Then a
person may become nervous; and suffLs
fmro muscle spasms and convukdions. The
parathyroids are tiny beads of glands, usu-
ally two on each side of the windpipe.
Though .being the smallest of the endo-
crine l;ind-. they are necessary for the
life of the organism. If they are re-
moved, dea f results from telany or mus-
cle spasms unless calcium is given.
The thymus is a double gland in the
upper chest. Composed of spongy tissue,
it directs the body's defenses against
germs. After puberty it remains about the
same size, but becomes fatty in structure
and apparently nonfunctioning.
"For a child without a thymus," repbrt-
ed Newsweek magazine, i:.; situation is
grim." Although extremely rare, it is said
that a child born without one will die of
an- overwhelming infection by the age of
two. Thus the thymus evidently plays an
essential role in the development of anti-
bodies for the baby's protection against
The pancreas secretes insulin to con-
trol the use .of s.gar by the body. If it
fails, sugar accumulates in the blood and
spills over int6 the urine,. nd the patient
suffers from diabetes.

Four of Greater Sign/flance
The sex glands are important, but not
essential to life. The female ovaries, be-
sides their primary function of producing
egg cells (perhaps 50,00G in a lifetime),
manufacture two hormones,, estrogen and
progesterone. During' a woman's entire.
period of fertile years only a few milli-;
grams of estrogen aqe secreted, yet this:
is enough to transform a girl into a wom-
an, and to regulate the release of a mature
egg in the reproductive cycle approximate-..
ly once a month.
Experinenetal science h4s discovered
that female hormones help to reduce ar-
tery hardening in both sexes. Undoubtedly
the body uses 'sex hon'mones in other roles
than thosp of reproduction.

m The male testes, besides producing
om sernn, secrete the hormone testosterone,
TWA)rAt which plays a part in the body's use of
protein, in bone healing, and in blood clot-
The pituitary, situated at the base of
the brain, is the master cthmist. It se-
cretes at least eight active compounds,
One of these is related to the entire re-
productive arrangement in the female
-the maturation of the egg in the Graaf-
ian follicle in the ovaries, the manufac,
ture of estrogen, the menstrual cycle, the
secretion of prolactin to promote milk for
the newborn child,.and so on.
Another pituitary hormone regulates
growth. Another stimulates the thyroid
gland. Another the adrenal, Another regu-
lateq the transfer of fat deposits to the
liver. Another regulates skin color. An-
other regulates the volume of urine ex-
creted daily, and the body's salt balance.
What a versatile and precise chemical
master the pituitary is!
The thyroid is the body's gas pedal! It
speeds up or slows down the rate of living.
If too little thyroid activity occurs, both
physical and mental vigor decreases. There
may be dry skin, loss of hair and super-
sensitivity to cold. On the other hand, if
too much, nervousness, weight loss in
spite of increased appetite, inability to
withstand heat, and heart pounding may
result. In addition, if thyroid deficiency
in the mother. occurs during pregnancy,
the unborn child may become a cretin, re-
Starded in growth and sexual development.
The thyroid, the largest ductless gland
in the adult, makes an iodine-containing
hormone that affects the rate at which
the body transforms food into energy. If
not: enough iodine is present in the diet
to serve the thyroid's function, enlarged
thyroid or goith r often results. That is
why many salts are iodized, to prevent
such deficiency.
The adrenal glanis are crowns resting
on top of the kidneys, one above each
kidney. There are two' parts to the,adre.
nals, the adrenal medulla (inner core) and
the adrenal cortex (toter shell). The adre-
nal medulla secretes what has been called
the "emergency hormone"-epinephrine
(adrenaline)-into the blood, enabling the
"ody to adjust to sudden stresses. Healthy
adrenal glands enable the body to cope
with emergencies. If a man has to escape

crisis captain!
The adrenal cortex, which is essential
to life, apparently produces more than
three dozen hormones, all of them steroids.
These hormones serve in many ways, such
as helping to regulate sglt and sugar bal-
ances in the body and exerting an anti-
Sallergic and anti-inflammatory action.
Among the marvelous things made that
reflect the precise and intricate work of
,*master Ddsigner are those amazing duct-
es glands, which, like the chemical syn-
dicate they ar re gulate so perfectly the
functions of the human body. It is more
M lievable that a watch, complicated as it
is, made itself by chance, than that the
infinite complications of the endocrine
system should have just happened, and es-
pecially so since all the glands must func-
tion from the start, perfectly, if the body
is to live nonnally--or even live at all!
