NOT only is no man an island
unto himself but no island is
an island in the global scee.
What happens in the big island.
Britain'sis bound to affect the
mall island of Dominica The
quarrel between the docker
trade uniaoists of Britain and
,their Conservative Goverammeit
(whom they accus hackling
them) has resulted in the waste
of millions of tons of food-
stuffs and export, loss of
working hours, hardship to the
weak aan young and general in-
convenience in the home coun-
try'; it also means here that
Dominica banana growers canot
ship their fruit this week,be-
cause there is a big risk in-

many difficulties). IPr example
Geest uIdustries have invoked
the suspension clause in their
banana buying contract which
exempts them from buying ban-~
anas during certain emergemies.
St. Lucia has taken the
risk and shipped bananas this
week, but we evidently cannot
do so. The bananas we sent out
last week, like over 7,000
tons from Jamaica, are probab-
ly lying in the holds of ships
caught in the dock strike,
The State of Emergency in
Britain is given 28 days to run
we earnestly hope it will be
resolved before then.
Prime Minister Heath has set
up a committee to as E s how
mlany ships & cargoes are caught
iu the standstill.
How about a committee hereI
to discuss immediately the dire
effects of this stadstill on
our production and our people?
Government and D.B.G.A. are
not the only factors involved.
The Dominican, like the British
people are directly affected.

E MOi'TIBUS PARUIT RIDICULUS MUS by John Spector
My title is alleged to be a quotation from the Latin poet Horace -
65-8 B.C.. and was inscribed by dome undergraduate humorist above the
lavatories of a famous English college.' The student probably consid-
eed himself well-educated and his classical scatalogical joke evidence
of his erudition. In fact .the Latin is incorrect and should read:
"Parturiunt montes, nascetur ridiculous mus:",.meaning "The mountains
are in labour; there will be born a ridiculous mouse".
This story illustrates two points about education in Dominica, First
of course is the use of Latin tags, which were supposed to indicate the
wisdom and high education of the speaker -- very popular for many years
among Westindian politicians. The second point illustrates the futility
of most of the written and spoken discussion on education now going on.
Most of the thinking is"based on false premises about the human capacity
to learn to read, write, assimilate facts amd reason logically and
economically. Without basic definitions about education, childhood,
adolescence, intelligence and all the other factors in the development
of a full human being, any argument on "the educational system" in Dom-
inica is a waste of time, and the result will be "a ridiculous mouse".
Basically, at birth, all homo sapiens have, within quite a small
genetic range, similar potentialities and aptitudes for learning -- be
they Dominicans; Europeans, Eskimos, Chinese or aboriginal Australians.
As adults they will be as individually diverse as different customs,
environment and economic circumstances have formed them but the range
of difference from' dullard to average to genius will be the same regard-
less of ethnic origin. In other words the principles of education are.
universal and the "system" of education. now practised in Daminica .is
.not automatically "bad" because it comes from Europe and liorth America,
anymore than it is automatically"good". None- will deny that textbooks
ppylated cheaply in their millions from the English-speaking countries
in temperate zones need alterations-in detail for the Westindian pupil,
but any textbook is better than nohe at all. Don't throw out the baby
with the bathwater. The same applies to the G.C.E. examinations. So far
examinations are considered the best method of judging a person's cap-
ability, but even in England there are many parents and educational
experts who rave against the G.C.E. Why? Because it is an examination
for which the student can "cram" i.e. study intensively for a short
period, and pass subject by subject. Employers! (and Institutes of
Higher learning) are often disappointed after stipulating for a certain
number of 'O' or 'A' levels to find that 75% of the people interviewed
(with the required levels:) have little intelligence and have forgotten
the subjects they crammed for two or three years earlier. Thus the
Universities in England have a high proportion of "drop-outs" and the
firms a high labour turnover. And ... England has around one million
unemployed, a high proportion of whom have good paper qualifications
Curriculum: already the curriculum of our secondary schools has
undergone a vast change in the last 15 years. The Classics, Latin and
Greek, have disappeared completely; Chemistry and Physics are taught in
the higher forms and, thanks to representations made to the Examination
Authorities in England, West Indian History and Geography are included
subjects.
Intelligence: in many of the 'advanced' countries of the world, in-
telligence is something which can be measured at various ages by Intel-
ligence Quota Tests, These show the ratio of the child's reasoning and
learning capacity to its age (roughly to the intelligence of the average
child of that age). I.Q. tests must be devised for the general environ-
ment, geographical and.familial, of the child* So far no attempts have
been made- to the writer's knowledge, to formulate an I.Q. basis for
the English-speaking Caribbean (although I believe a start has been made
in Jamaica at one time). The nearest to an I.Q. test is the Common Entr;*
ance "Comprehension" paper in use in Dominica. (concluded on 4)

DOMINICA: The B.B.C. may film

with Senator McGovern that the row
over his past mental treatment nnd
his.failure to disclose it earlier

arrested several times for drunken

* FROM OUR READERS **
Some of the letters arrived
too late and were too long but
readers made three points (often
repeated):
1. (Mainly from Portsmouth and
points North and East) Hearty
congratulations to new Carib Chief
Mas Clem Frederick and best wishes
for his term of office in the
guidance of the Carib people.
2. More Jacko Please' The bird
portrayed in our issue of July 21
took the fancy of many readers,
some .of them calling him Star
Sisserou and others Jacko. They
want us to make a regular feature
of this wise bird and his cutting
remarks on current affairs heard
over radio etc. We shall certain-
ly do so from time to time. Jacko
is the creation of a famous car-
toonist from the Bahamas, who is
invited to send us in a bill for
the use of his cunning bird.
3. A reader sent in a detailed
question on "why do columnists
drop out". She referred with deep
respect to Androcles, who never
let anybody down, then asked "why
do other columnists just as they
are becoming popular suddenly van-
ish from the newspaper scene?"
Well Madami there are several
reasons for such non-continuance.
One is that some contributors are
not really dedicated journalists'
but just use:the columns of local
newspapers to get in a few digs
.or air current grievances; you must
remember toothat small island news-
papers pay little or nothing to
their contributors (they can't af-
ford to); thus a certain.degree of
local prestige is the only prize.
On the other hand, someone making
a start in a little newspaper' can
jump off from there to higher
pastures. But often the real cause
is apathy, lack of inspiration or.
material, lack of time, and dis-
c.ouragement by the writer'., employ-
er, .be it Government or private
enterprise. However now'and then
columnists come back' into the field
after an interval which may be..
due to absence or other causes,.
We shall pass on the writer's com-
pliments to Cynthia Watt for her
perserarance and the pleasure she
gives. -- Editor.

STo ge6t-ibaek to the public discussion onEducation .ndw under way, I
offer'. a- few "guidelines to would-be reformers of -the educatid6ial system,
especially the younger ones;. In the brain cells, of a-new-born baby .are
certain potentials to reasoning, fact. absorption, memory -and otheF .ad-
aptations to enable it, when a fully grown .and adult human being, t o
surmount its environment, live'!with neighbours in peace and harmony,
create new ideas, new forms, new juxtapositions of colours, new outlines
of freedom and justice, and. to take on responsibility. The human brain
.first learns: to do-ordinate bodily movements to obtain simple nie(.daa;.
later. with the aid of its-parents, ita-family or some other e'vir.nment
it learns to live :in a community and, give and take- the knocks, and also
receive the kindnesses of other..humans, animals and nature. Pre-school,
.if-the- hild is lucky and the school properly equipped, makes the first
start ,towards training to- reason. Primary school teaches the three s

This ca.rrie~- a child up to age 9 :or 1.0, by .which time. -a certain. amount
,of- reasoning- power -will have germinated in the brain, yet -the child:

development of the individual, since adolescence.- aided by:-the ductless
glands- can move at very different speeds, even when pubescence isi, delayed
V: Rc om this threshold, the education of the child may '(often by-,ohano)
proceed .in. secondary school or darry on..to age 15 or'so 'a..primasyr-----

of 'the Academies,. High Schools, Grammar Schools or whatever-they may 1
be termed.. The most successful students of the,more abstract diScip lies
should -go, on, to. Universities to extend their..knowledge of the sub jets

may forsake the eiMct form of their degree qualification, but use.the .

Fiction: MA TITIXME by Cynthia Watt
That same night Genelia sat in her
drawing-room in front of a round table
vwith a candle in the middle, and she
laid out all the little sprigs of flow
er's-inrows, sorting them according to
colour. taking a lot of pleasure in
them, especially the ones which had
not wilted She came to the conclusion
that'the blossoms were of four shades:
blue, white, yellow and red, though
there were some pale ones and some
bright, She had no idea what they
were called, and every now and then
broke off a tiny leaf, crushed it and
sniffed as if that would help her to
identify them in future. It took her
a long while to count each separate
flower nearly an hour, in facts By
eliminating all the dead and faded
ones, she arrived at the figure of 726
-Divided by four,, this. meant 18; and
,the 18th-lettor of the alphabet was R.
Since the year didn't have 18 months,
"-' se figured out that starting from
Januaryy, the.month: in which she would
oaeet .her true love would be June, a
l.ogg :way off; so'jugglig'"aiound like
all obeah people,- she started from
Auguast- and reckoned it as February..,
yes,: February 18th, that was the date$
:Genelia was disappointed'in the
letter' R.* .'She knew Richaid, .Rbbert
and Riley, thre- fellows who had given
her quite a lot of attention without
reward*.Riley was the hnadsomest of
the three and had.a ca-: w-hereas Rob-
ert -'Was a. banana sprayer and Richard
pwmied only a bicycle. She,'nevr gave
'thought to the name Reubeh when she
gathered up the dying sprigs and took
*them outside to biet them with the.
candle.
SShe. couldn't resist going over to
tell Titine the result of"the-test.'
"But all dboi is men you already put
.in 0eir plate," said Titine dryly.She
was ironing, and looked hot and peev-
ish. "An doan forget you has to go to
America soon on dat Audob6n grant. If
I.was you I would stick to bird an
tree an-leave men and flowah alone."
"Dat's right,s I might -meet de very
one ovah dere -- he would'follow me
back heali to'make a'study of our bird-'
-"An of our chick," said MIa Titine
unsympathetically.
"Titine, whas bodderin you?" Gen-
elia glanced at the envelope With a
St. Thomas stamp on t.e- stool. "You
had bad news from Garge?"
"Dat.letter not from Garge and is
nuttin to do wid he," retorted Titine,
flashing a signal that it was nothing
..... (Col. 2)


THE ODD MOMENT by G.B.Giraud
It's the odd moment,
Over and over again,
Which brings reflection
On man's. stress and strain.
That's the way it is:
The odd moment again -
In between crises,
To bring a man pain.
It's the odd moment again
That keeps man well
Or drives him quite insane:
Odd moment, brief hell.
It's that odd moment* 'In vain
Any hope to avoid
The pang that is near-insane
Or the mood overjoyed.

DOMINICA THROUGH THE EYES OF YOUTH
This is the title of a booklet with
a striking cover Which contains answers
to 33 questions affecting youth today.
Chris S6raphine is responsible for the
designs, Daniel Ryan and others for
the text They are associated with the
Loubiete Progressive Movement. Two 'in-
isters; .Mr Pond and Mr. Parry Bellot,
are among those providing replies. It
is hard to detect whose opinion is what.
A lot of the stuff in this long philo-
sophical treatise" (divided into "chap-
ters")is sound ; some of it. is banal'
but it should' d more good than harm,
provided readers'have the persistence
to go through-it, sifting the grain
from the chaff*'
The printers, Hilton Services, did
a nice job on the production. The gram-
mar is weak in spdts and so is the mix-
ture of ideologies. Eikely enough this
booklet will'be a talking point for
other groups, and it has some bright
thoughts hidden in the verbiage.
Most of the problems are peculiar
to Dominica, Dut_ occasionally they..
touch on a wider dilemma. Worth 500 if
you- can spare It in these days.
to do with Geielia either.
For this is what the awful letter
said (it had put her in a-rage and
kept her. awake all night):
S"Dear Mam you don't know me but I know
you and i have your well fair at
heart i therefore writes to tell you
that your husban is keeping a girl
who thin like a hearpin and does
greedy for cash that's why he don't
send you none. these lass week. Look
out for your HOME LIEE l.
The letter was unsigned. It was probably
a lie, but Titine knew that Garge liked
girls' who were as thin as hairpins.

Fiction THE LIVING CORPSE by. Collins F.O'Neill-
On that Sunday ii Haiti when Pappa Adoma called together about a dozen
of his closest relatives'(having had a vision the night before), he engaged
his Sunday drummer-boy to supply the kind of music he needed. The company
.had a good time together that day, but by late evening the drumbeat suddenly
changed to.an entirely different, slow tempo as they all sat admiring Petra
% io dancer gracefully weaving in and out between the curious related guests.
'Up to that time, despite repeated demands by the' guests for'an explanation
of the'purpose of the party, Pappa Adoma merely said calmly, "Enjoy your-
selves, family. Everybody, enjoy yourselves." He was standing clapping his
hands to accompany the drumbeats. "If you cannot'wait, and I should advise
you not to,.. You may Get lost in a cloud of dust. '
They wondered what he really meant, for in a moment he called to his
wife Terese to bring his long briar pipe. The drumbeat changednow to a
sophisticated rhythm and'at"the first puff of smoke, ,a complete skeleton -
evidently that of a man--' walked slowly through the'main door before them.
The guests tried to scuttle away, but Pappa Adoma shouted a powerful word'-
and the skeleton suddenly disappeared The drumming resumed and the guests
returned to near normal, showering question upon cquestiononn Pappa Adoma,
who was'becoming somewhat agitated. But he tried'to calm down the obvious
tension, particularly visible in his wife's face.
"Now," Pappa Adoma said, "Please be not disappointed." He requested his
wife to sit on a wooden bench near to him, and besought her that whatever
happened she must be ''fim, and must not cry. She was unconsoled by. this,
and was already in tears, for from that grim momehn whe' the mysterious
skelet on-intruder appear-ed, she was fast developing a state of panic,'and
soon fell into a ne6r coma from,which kindly guests, after some .effort, man-
aged..to restore her.
When she had come to,-Pappa Adoma gave her some comforting words, "Be
not afraid, my dearly! (he placed his arms around her and fondled her); "'.be
not.afraid for loJ I'll bo"with you always." It was strange to hear him
talk in almost.a biblical way.
Pappa Ad9ma then told the history of his military life during the last
w.ar. "I was a soldier in-the first battalion, The'day before the alarm was
declared, an old man gave me a book'pointing out to"me certain passages to
Smemorise, for protection; moreover, he said I should 'die in the course of
battle but within two ,days I would live again. I escaped 'death many times
'but the hour came when the cannon from a gun'emplacem6nt shattered me'to
pieces." 'He said in subdued tones: "My wife, and you, good relatives, heard
nothing of this. I did come to in exactly two days from a lake of fire -
at least that's where all of us dead soldiers' bodies were' dumped for burial.,
After'the warZ I returned.home to my dear and loving' wife as'a real human
being, she loving me much dearer than when I was first alive."
A most dreadful emotion overshadowed the party anId they knew for the -
first time that they were in the loathsome company of a'Living.Corpse. Some-
of them tried ,o steal out but felt their legs and joints too paralysed even
to make one short step backward.'
"One.of the other dead soldiers visited me last night," Adoma said,"and
that is why you are invited to this party." All the while the drummer boy,
his mouth open, kept- on drub-d-rubbing as if hypnotised.'
"And what did he tell you?" the revived but trembling wife asked.
Pappa Adoma smiled slyly. ,'There is trouble in Hell," he replied. "The
-dead soldier commanded me to return to Hell forthwith or'all the soldier-
jumbies and skeletons will be coming to take me from' here,"
Shakily the wife whispered, "Addy Addy --'"why'is this trouble in Hell?"
He seemed to forget the rest of the company. "I shouldn't teli you this:
but because of ty sincere love, for you I must answer.you truly."
"Please Addy."
"There was a woman'-disguised as a uniformed'soldier. The man n my 7 ion
said all the trouble erupted because of her.., I saw her-body splattered to
pieces And as I stooped, lamenting, over her, that was when ihe cannon shat-
tered us all unawares."
".'Who was she?".
'Let me only say she had co-cernbd me before'-we were killed. fBut then..."
I left her in Hell and now all the juibbies there re in a desperate fight over
her.-" (Concluded on page Ten)
