V3 ThOUGIHT the Third World was a group,-
ing of neutral, non-aligned,pacific
nations who might form a tolerant
blood for progress and peace in tha
split world. From their conference
in Guyana tney seem very msch aligned
against the U.S.A. and the West, and
extremely belligerent in some of their-
declamations4 Bult even tlhe NonAligned
lands split over seating the Viet Cong..
and the 'Left' Gambodians. Six Par East
and Asian countries in all walked out
on inclusion of one or other newcomer.
We should like a definition of what
they all mean by liberation Movements.

So St. Kitts is to host the Caribbean Conservation Conference on
September 1st; the main topic of the conference-will be the develop-
ment of National Parks, particularly in the smaller islands. We under-
stand that members of the Washington Conservation Foundation will be
present. Back in 1967, Dr. Dasmann of the Foundation visited Dominica
and introduced the subject of a National Park for Dominica (partly
to offset the effects of indiscriminate lumbering by Domcan Timbers -
now defunct);, a planning team from the Foundation was sent to Dominica
in September 1969 and they produced the splendidly illustrated plan
"Chance for a Choice" in 1970 (May). The Government throughout was
stated to have shown interest, but at that time they were also showing
interest in Domcan 'Timbers and Sunday Island. Meanwhile the STAR
(through this writer especially) was warning of the dangers of unplan-
ned development, the profitlessness of allowing others to upset the
ecology of the island, and the importance of preserving any local his-
torical monuments and our natur al assets.
Subsequently, without any public acknowledgment of the importance
of these matters, Government called in (at considerable expense) the
tourist consultants Shankland and Cox and Associates. What did they
produce? A fine, detailed report "A Tourist Development Strategy".
(covering 20 years) which bases its whole tourist appeal for Dominica
on the National Park idea, conservation of natural and historical
assets and the other ideas earlier put forward. .Portions of this
overall scheme were scheduled to be started in 1971, including the
formation of a Statutory.Development and Planning Corporation.
On August 17th 1972, members of the House of Assembly will have
their first opportunity to discuss the whole question of the Develop-
ment Strategy, when they debate the Development & Planning Corporation
,Bill and the Hotels Aid (Amendment) Bill which adds to the touristic
duty-free schedule practically everything from curtains and mirrors
to office equipment and electrical generators. Though not expected'to
agree slavishly with Government on every point in those Bills, the
'Opposition will, I believe, support the whole idea of the National
Park, but not with certain extravagances (such as were suggested once
by Mr. Bruce Robinson) of a four-lane, fluorescent-lighted highway from
one end of the island to another: for instance the roads to beauty spts
like the Freshwater and Boiling lakes require nothing larger than a 15'
road, with passing points, parking bays and look-out spots. All the
American and European countries are now regretting their myriads of
motorcars on the roads with attendant pollution and motorways which
gobble up more and more good and beautiful land (along with the plants,
trees, birds, animals and insects which had their habitat there).
Let Dominica be one treasured and cared-for place on this bewild-
ered planet where the victims of and refugees from their own pollution
can come and reward the Dominican for his forethought by staying awhile
in pure uncontaminated air, with nature's gentleness and bounty around
them! They will come, and spend their money here, provided all Domin-
icans are prepared to welcome them civilly on equal terms, not just as
servitors; with dignity, not as beggars. In this connection, we are
glad the Strategy does not push the idea of a gambling resort at the
Cabrits or elsewhere in this land. Such a thing could bring a lot of
greed and misery in its train. sea
Liberation: the Guyana. newspaper 'Mirror' shut down on June 19th this year be-
cause the Burnham Government refused since Feb. 24.th to grant its Editor (Mrs.
Jagan) an import licence for newsprint. On opening the ITon-Aligned Conference
recently, Mr. Burnham called for finances arms and training for the 'liberation
movements1 of the- world... a strangely wide sot of associates which presumably
includes the East Indian..majority in Guyana as well as the p rsecuted Jewa.oz
the Soviet Union and the Palestinian LMberaton Movement who tran and arm
crazy Japanese to gun down innocent passengers in an Israeli airport lounge.
What kind of people are the islands of the iEatern Caribbean preparing to
support? _

THE DRAUGHTSMAN'S ART (I.) by AL AKONG: Still Life Drawing,-
In my last article I tried to make interested readers conscious
of the need of a disciplined mind and hand in order to become a good
draughtsman. In this installment I shall go a bit deeper.
When I started attending evening classes at the Camberwell art
school in London one of the teachers there gave me the most fundamental
and important lesson in draughtsmanship, in such a simple, comprehen-
sive and practical way that 1 quickly grasped it and never missed a
single night in his class after that; and today, in the same words of
that teacher (plus some of my own) I always explain to interested
persons why some people seem to have little difficulty in drawing.
It goes like this:
'In drawing, each line that you put down on your paper is like
a statement made about what you are drawing somewhat like the evid-
ence that one gives, in Court hence each of those lines that you
fail to put down accurately, or each mistake that you make, is like
an untruth, or a little lie; and the more 'liest you set down on your
paper, the more inaccurate your statements, or the more inaccurate
your drawing..* consequently the less chance of it ever coming out good,
Again, like going before a magistrate and giving inaccurate statements
in your evidence, or telling lies --you will either have your case
dismissed, or be charged with perjury if you happen to be the plain-
tiff, or found guilty, and have to pay a fine or go to jail if you
are unfortunately the defendant: you would have made a 'bad case'
with your inaccurate statements or your little lies.'
It was in the still life or object drawing class that I got that
valuable lesson in draughtsmanship. Object drawing had hitherto never
,interested me much, and worse again that teacher pointed- ut to me so
many glaring 'lies that I was telling in my drawing that I wondered
whether-I really ever had any flair for drawing. What he was in fact
pointing out to me was that I had not as yet acquired the discipline
required for serious draughtsmanship.
Still life or object drawing is the most excellent subject for
acquiring the disciplined hand of the draughtsman. In a way it is
easier than drawing figures., landscapes or faces, because the objects,
are static and usually there are no changing shadows or lighting to
complicate matters, but still life drawing can be very difficult if
you choose objects that have no special appeal to you; already dead,
these objects will never seem to have the soul' that stimulates your
emotions into wanting to share their 'feelings'; you find then nothing
but hard, rigid facts and tend to treat them thus: but this is the
approach you need towards drawing when you want to discipline your mind
and hand. Each statement made about the object must be a rigid fact,
no 'lies' and when you have armed yourself with that big lesson that.
the teacher from the Camberwell art school gave to me, and use still
life drawing to put it into practice, you will surely discover things
that you never suspected could happen in drawing, and your skill as a
draughteman will increase beyond belief.
Next installment we shall be more practical still, with still life!
