No underdeveloped country could afford to jeer at the idea of
$60,000,000 being spent on its land and population over a period of
five years. This does not mean that such a big project should not
be looked at very closely and more important still -- followed up
critically to see whether the performances have lived up to the prom-
ises. The sum involved is not too little .(I. hope there-w41.-1 -not- -..-.,-
need to be the usual supplementaries), and of course non-Government
observers must have different ideas of priorities. But I. will come to
that in time. 9n this occasion I wtite of the plan in general and
of the early chapters in particular.
.The five-year period is 1971-1975, so it will be seen that al-
,though not little, it isialready rather late; we are now three-quarters
of the way through 1972, and this is the first occasion when the pub-
lic, through the Press and accessible copies, has a look at the big
scheme. Obviously the 206-page book with 4 pages of maps has many
contributing authors, like a Speech from the Throne. The foreword
is by the Premier, now in temporary retirement, and his style can
be recognized by the following: "The encouragement of the develop-
ment of this agricultural scenario is one of the basic objectives of
the plan, designed as it is to transfer elan from the white collared
worker to the agricultural entrepreneur where it belongs in this
community," The transference of elan is a singularly subtle oper-
ation even between one individual and another; and what is interesting
in the phraseology.of this plan is how unpopular words like entrepreneur
and exploitation are given a sort of respectability.
In his paragraph 8, the Premier goes on to say "That the object-
ives of the Plan must be fulfilled will be accepted by all who from
-day to day have expressed their concern about opportunities for the
gainful and satisfying employment of our youth." (My italics). Now
while (in my view) it is a fact that some of the better points in this
plan were pinched from early manifestoes of the Freedom Party, in par-
ticular the concern for youth training and employment, and others from
articles in the Opposition Press (not forgetting the late-great
Androcles), even Premiers of Associate States should be careful not to
use the word MUST or to state that something WILL BE ACCEPTED. Do you
all remember the Town Council Act and 16th December? Any spirited
Opposition which had not beaefully consulted beforehand and suddenly
finds such a vital promotional concept slipped on the table of the House
(p. 6 of the Order Paper) as a Motion by the Honourable Premier -Will
query the rapidity of this transference of l6an and ask for a full de-
bate on another occasion, as Mr. Moise did. But the "ayes", in the
Premier's absence, had it.
A grateful tribute to the four sources from which good financial
aid has come already and who may be expected to contribute to the $60 m.
Development Plan -i.e. H,M. Government in the United Kingdom, the
Canadian Government, the United Nations Agencies and the Caribbean Dev-
elopment Bank, precedes the final paragraph of this preface, which ends
with the words "the realization of this Plan". But, readers, the Plan
is not yet realized. It is still a prospect.
Then comes an Introduction, probably written by a Civil Servant. He
used the curious expression 'fiscal incentives' in para. 5 (p.vii); but
he probably meant fiscal incentives. Here it is stated that the Plan
is essentially a public sector programme with indicators for the private
sector. In para. 6 of this section, I rather like the phrase "the plan
assumes the usual gamut*of democratic pre-conditions -the observance
of the rule of law; the protection of the fundamental rights and free-
doms enshrined in the constitution; fair industrial relations practices;
and impartial administration." my italics-J.S.

"Man's Days are as Grass" a reply
by Gerard Shillingford Mason, Grand
ond. I read the article on p.4 of
THE STAR, Fri. Aug.18 1972, caption-
ed as above (by Hugh Lawrence), and
it left' me very much in doubt as to
what the writer really meant to con-
vey. The article sounds like a trib-
ute to the late Loftus Roberts- it
made mention of his academic achiev-
ement; but the writer was very care-
ful to say how long Mr. Roberts took
to get his degree. Perhaps I should
allow this to go unchallenged.
But when it comes to the sentence
which reads: "I must say it is sad

READERS VIEWS Mr.Mason's letter
that he did not leave a son to re-
place him," I must ask for an ex-
planation. First of all, since
Loftus Roberts' activities in the
academic field were not restricted
to his personal gain, but rather
for the benefit of the State as a
whole, was it his responsibility to
see that he was replaced? (In any
case he personally has no use or
need for replacement).
Secondly, was it within the pow-
er of Loftus Roberts or any man for
that matter to have a son to re-
place him? How can one be sure that
a son will be an exact duplicate of
his father? Mr. Roberts has.three
daughters, he eldest of whom has
done well academically so far. This
is an age of sex equality.
Then after lamenting over the
fact that he did not leave a son to
replace him, the writer went on to
'quote'from the Holy Book,"Man's days.."
Does the writer mean to say that
if Loftus Roberts had left a son to
replace him his days would not have
been as grass?
Therefore Mde.Editor I cannot ac-
cept the article in question as only
intended to praise: but that it was
written with suchghraseological dip-
lomacy which would elude the thinking
of the busy reader.
In the same issue, we printed
a tribute to Androcles by onetime
Governor Guy. Many plaudits have
come in about those few words.Here
is one: As a youngish Civil Ser-
vant who worked under and not over
the late Mr. Loftus Roberts, I en-
tirely endorse what ex-Governor Guy
had to say about him, and further
I like to see an Englishman at last
being manly enough to pay tribute
where it is due, so many expatriates
are afraid to look the lion in the
face, even when they retire. C."
After spending a few years in the
U.S.A. and learning much about the
struggles ofthe coloured (black)
people there (of whom I am one), I
am of the opinion that the people
in the West Indies have got the
wrong impression of the Black Power
or Black Liberation Movement -which-
ever you. may careto call it.
In the U.S. the Blacks predominate
i4 the Southern States, mainly
Georgia, na pa Virginia.

THE $60,000,000 PLAN by John Spector continued from pl 2
In documents of this kind one must expect pages of preparatory
preaching in a selective historical context. This one is no exception.
We are reminded that the Queen's Representative is relieved of any
political or legal responsibility for the actual business of Government.
The issuing of proclamations which may or may not antagonize the public,
the dissolution of village councils (which are becoming increasingly
politically-steered), the removal of the surtax on bananas, and the
naming of street., (remember the renaming of Freedom Street, Roseau?)
are all part of his ritualistic office as a symbol of national unity.
He can also order the Commnandant "to embody the Defence Force" and
prohibit public meetings -under advice, of course, from the Premier
and his Cabinet. However, he can "in some cases' act in his own delib-
erate judgment e.g. in the conduct of elections," We are reminded that
Dominica is free to terminate her association with the United Kingdom
at any time by a two-thirds majority vote of the elected members in the
House and two-thirds of the votes cast in referendum -such referendum
being required for a severance, save for the purpose of joining with
any Commonwealth Country in the Caribbean. But Britain may terminate
the association unilaterally, subject to six months' notice and "a
conference with the island would be held to discuss the political and
economic implications of such a step".
I now come to the parts headed EDUCATION, HEALTH, HOUSING, WATER
and SOCIAL SECURITY, which tel: me hardly anything I did not know al-
ready. Then i arrive at the ECONOMIC section (page 18). Subhead AGRIC-
ULTURE naturally stars bananas, those ill-starred fruits of local labour
and hope. The piece on the timber industry is interesting because it
talks of establishing a market for the produce of our magnificent forests
"in the South Eastern United States eventually". Mining, the coconut oil
industry... then skip to TOURISM. The number of tourists increased at
an annual average rate of 21.0% between 1960-1968. 1 shall be interested
to see comparative figures for the following five years. Referring to
the timber market hinted at above, I read that "sufficient groundwork
has been laid by now to accelerate the pace of exploitation of the forest
potential of the country." At 30 cents per board foot, this ia expected
"to move from $0.8m E.C. in 1970 to $1.61 E.C. in 1975."Conservators,
please note: What are Government's holdings in Dominica Timber Industry?
One can glean quite a lot of useful information or reminders from
this Plan book:, viz., that the population of Dominica is predominantly
young, and that 37% of the population in 1960 bore the burden of provid-
ing a livelihood for the whole.
On arriving at DEVELOPMEiT STRATEGY, I came across a perfect ex-
ample of bureaucratese jargon: "In manufacturing and tourism, entre-
preneurship and investment, local as well as foreign, can only operate
vigorously within an infrastructural and institutional framework that
is appropriately oriented to promote expansion." In para. 108 on
national- awareness-and ethnic self-consciousness, the "constructive
exploitation of the latent energies which those forces nurture'"brings
in our old familiar..the exploiter again. Much of this section refers
to "the unfolding of the national personality"."The greatness of an age
lies in its genius to develop-its own ethos" comes into this.para. 112,
which is quite a gem. But forget not, noble Greek, that the West Indian
is sharply an individual, firmly an individualist, -and tends to reject
collectivization, whether of ethos or property.
If I have treated the first several pages of this work somewhat like
a reviewer of Parkinson's Law or The Peter Principle, it is because I can-
not do other than treat them lightheartedly, since (as Mr. Loblack says)
"Matter fix, and it fix before I met it." Next time I shall be more ser-
ious, since I shall deal with figures as well as written facts. I also
wish to' express myself cheerfully on the subject of the national park.

Friday, Septeshber I,



By popular demand, we now present the 3-STAR GRAPEVINE
Scene 1: Cabinet Room.,
JUNII : I call this meeting to order. You scums... I mean gentlemen,...
know our Chief is for all purposes dead. Some of us thank that
crash near the Leper Home for that but that's beside the point.
What I want to say is I am now in the saddle and I'll ride you,
I mean my horse as I wish. I want to hear you, Unchristian,
about your part in the Castle Bruce.affair.
UN~CHRISTIAN: Well, deputy ...
3TJR:Deputy hell, call me Chief.
UNiCHRIS: Well Chief to tell you the truth I know how you espouse the
Marxist system so when I was called upon to address the people
I tried to please you by saying how our Government wants lands
to be taken from the big folks to give to the people...
JUNIIOR: You damned fool. Everything~.e like Russia but NOT land are
you mad? You, Mr. Co-opI what's your role?
CO-QP-I: O.K. Well, -Mr.Junior.,,
JUNIOR: Call me Chief, you ass.
CO-OP-I: O.K. Well Chief, Unchristian having made a faux pas what
could I do? I had to carry on and so I wrote the letter
stating the small people's views and so . .
JUNIOR: Donkey you. I'm well surrounded by asses. Anyway my- decision
is that you two showed your stupidity, with which I will not
put up. I want a.press release immediately saying Government
will have no part of this Castle Bruce idiocy. Have you all
no regard for my' family or do you all want to undermine me?
You are jealous of my lands! You are .
'O-OP-l: But Chief I .
UNCHRISTIAN: But Chiefi we didn't know ,
JUNIOR: Know hell. Mr. secretaryy take this down and I want it read
every news. ti.e .for a week,
* * (D~otaes prepared Press Release).
Scene 2 : Home of JUNIOR. (En bae kai-l )
JUNIOR: Darling, these damnasses nearly gave away our dowry.
DARLING: How you mean de-r?
JUNIOR: Well that ass Unchristian told the Castle Bruce people we
are socialist, so they will get the land from C.D.C.!
DARLING: So what? They are foreigners.
JUNIOR: Yes darling, but don't you see, after that it's Melville
Hall, then Woodford Hill, then Eden. They won't stop.
DARLING: But we still have lower down.
JUNIOR: Lower down is our dowry but that will go too.
(Holding his head in his hands and sobbing)
Oh God! I mean Oh Castro! what have I done. I have
created a Prarnkensteii monster! Ill .deny them. I'll
destroy them. I'll I'll I'll .
Wait dear till you hearty release. Those SCAMPS!

Declaring that all British aid to Uganda would have to be re-
viewed because of their "inhuman and unjust" treatment of resident
Asians, Foreign Secretary Sir Bec Douglas Home made a statement to
the public this week. Our Uganda correspondent says: "everything but
their gold teeth was taken away from the departing Asians. It was
just like Hitler's treatment of the Jews before he melted them down
for fat and their bones for glue."

As history tell us ese people were very o4roAS dGk e-WnTe
treated as .non-Americias.* "With the, advent of the /Civil Rights Movement, and
men like Martin Luther King Jr*, the. late President Kennedy & his brother Sen.
Robert Kennedy and many dedicated Black people, the struggle for Black Recog-
nition has come a very log. iway, but still has to complete its final goals-.
Today, whereas there are Blacks in the South USA who' are still unregistered fo
vote and even to own property, their brave brothers who migrated to the North
have been able to vote a~'d'buy their own property and" to help unfortunate rel-
atives.* In the West Indies, the coloured people quickly outnumbered the Whites
after colonization,. perhaps because of the sizes of the individual islands,
the Blacks have been able' o take over from their Cf;l6nial'Ilasters rapidly.
Once the Legislatures were controlled by Whites in the W.I. voting rights were
based on wealth; key jobs were held only by the Whites and 'Upper Class. Today
in all the islands, the trend is in reverse: three States '(Jamaica,Trinidad &
Barbados) now independent, have Black (coloured) Governor-Generals and Prime
MiniSters. So what-are we in the W.I. fussing about? In the U.S.A. we are-
all known as WEST INDIANS.-' Let us therefore unite in the cause of W.I. UNITY.
