S T-AR 'Friday, September 22, 1972

There is a saying in the STAR office (and probably in the other
newspaper offices as well) that "it always rains on Friday". This seems
true usually, for when I dash in there on Friday evening for my early
copy, the little newsboys are draped around both inside and outside
that very small space like wet birds, waiting for a dry spell so that
they can make their rounds and sell.
Never on Sunday however applies to Radio Dominica, which was
referred to as "Radio Leblanc" at an unusual Freedom Party meeting in
Roseau this week, when debarrment of the Opposition from freedom of the
air was bitterly attacked by Mr. Star S. Lestrade, in the best speech
I have ever heard him make. ,My complaint is a simpler one, but none-
the-less justifiable: why should the Dominica Radio controllers assume
that nothing ever happens on Sunday? As far as I am aware, in the
fourth commandment no prediction was made that "no broadcasting of the
events of this our .temporal life shall take place on the Sabbath". In'
fact the omission givesa great feeling of uneasiness to the listening
public, which may well imagine that something of vital or fatal import-
ance could be happening either at home or abroad, and that they are.be-
ing kept in ignorance. I cannot accept the excuse of economy or lack
of staff; money is being misspent in this State (in my view and that of
many others) -and some Of it would be better diverted to keeping the
people informed at least in the normal manner, every day of the week.
And while on the subject of radio, how many people agree with me
that it is undignified to have our top broadcasting man emitting puerile
advertisements with the same breathless enthusiasm which he gives to
big sports'events or a national occasion? The kind of sales-dialogue'
with Mrs. Trinee, for example, is surely better left to junior staff?
Only a couple of members of Radio Dominica staff would pass a real
pronunciation test, although most have mellow local accents, especially
Roosie Mills,* Incidentally, looking northwards, Christine Carty who
went away on a course seems to have.returned not only sotto voce but
hardly improved in the pronounciation line (Radio Antilles). Surely
newsreading in particular should be rehearsed beforehand with a quali-
ed listener or a pronouncing dictionary: Polysyllabic words always
seem to cause difficulty, nore so even than foreign names... 'but to pro-
nounce 'had' 'hard' and hard' as 'had', always putting in the 'r' when
it isn't there and leaving it out when it is, is somewhat absurd and a
bad example for semiliterate people, who (in every country) copy the
announcers, and even do so in writing, spelling phonetically. The BBC
newscasters have to practise their news over beforehand, so why not ours?
All newspapers can be petty and misleading at times but some more
so and more often than others. I-find the article about Roseau side-
walks in the 'Educator' particularly bad journalism. Surely there
are enough ex-town councillors on the staff of that paper to inform the
editor that the Roseau Town Council has always perforce to pave side-
walks in front of houses if the owner supplies a third or over of the
materials. Most Roseau (not C.H.P.A.) householders know that, and can
only laugh at the ignorance of the newspaper to try and make a political
issue out of this. The nominated, non-elected, unrepresentative Central
Housing and Uanning Authority (which should, by its own rules, have long
ago handed over Goodwill to the R.T.C.) is much more open to criticism.
Federation Drive a "Class 1" road, is hardly fit for jeeps; it is
dangerous for two cars to pass each other on the upper portion; it is
dangerous all along the route for pedestrians; the wear and tear on ve-
hicles and on the nerves of drivers is inestimable. A government or
statutory body can be sued for negligence in the repair of a road; I am
told that the Central Water Authority has already handed over.'make-good'
money and that the road is well settled and more than ready for repair.

THE ATIONAL PARK IDEA A vehicle for Ecology-Education in Dominica.
Sadly enough, the 'crapand' is not the only species threatened with ex-
tinction. The sisserou parrot, unquestionably the most colourful representative
of our rich 4avian fauna,"haslong been listed as ai 'endangered species'.
The disastrous effects of indiscriminate use.6f DDT on bird populations
has been auply documented in scientific literature, and'should provide enough
of an incentive! for pertinent biological surveys to -be conducted so .as to assess
the impact of DpT use on systems other than the mosquito.
PART III: From the preceding observations it would seem clear that there is a
crying need for. a broad-based ecology-education campaign in Dominica. Econo-
mists, politicians, planners, agriculturists, students, farmers, housewives;
in fact every Dominican should be made aware of the susceptibility of the del-
icate balances bf nature to the insults inflicted'by modernn, 'technological'
man,, bent on increasing production and employment.
There is an urgent need to add a new dimension to the thinking of Dominicans
so that we see ourselves NOT as separate, antagonistic, exc3s ive exploiters"of
the earth, but as stewards and wise managers of"precious and limited 'exhaust-
ible resources. It is only THAT ecological awakening which.will spare Dominioa
the rape of'the environment" that has accompanied the practice of development-"
at any cost, an approach that is urged by ecologically-naive and myopic planes.
In 1969 the Conservation Foundation undertook a survey of the island's .re-
sources, and in the report that followed (DOMIINICA: -,AChance for a Choice)..
proposed the establishment of a National Park, as one of the many means of"en-
suring the protection and preservation of our island'- vital Water and Forest
Resources. My own understanding of the National Park concept leads me to
view the Conservation Fouhndation's proposal as a focal-point for the creation
of the sorely needed awakening referred to above. Apart from its intended role
in conservation.s a Dominica National Park could serve" simultaneously in the
capacity of ap educational and scientific research institution.
Assunptiopf Qf this-feature ie. that of an educational institution would
in no way usurp 'the function of our educational system as currently operated.
In fact the ,ned is particularly acute and essential, in. view of the very defi-
nite deficienCy of'the D6minican (i.e. the General Certificate of Education)
science curriculum, iii ecology. In addition, the approach to the teaching of
the biological sciences is almost wholly classical;_ and furthermore it tends'
to ignore the wealth of biological material available for .study in the-.island.
(This was painfully illustrated recently, when I discovered that earthworms
for a biol ogy dssection exercise at one school were ordered from' ga;;ndT
There almost appears 'td be a discouragement of "field bolo-gy", with the fre-
quent result that acquiring scientific knowledge becomes a rather sterile "ext-
book-regurgitatipn",process. In this context, it is'sad indeed when the
Dominican biology student's concept of a biology"laboratory is a room enclosed
by four walls, a oeiliin and floor, housing a few' ihiisrumehts and jars of
preserved specimens (most of which may not be representative of the local flora
or fauna.

DOMINICA CHAMBER. O COMMERCE: on Sept.19 at a joint meeting, the merger
with Dominica Manufacturers' Association received members' unanimous con-
sent. DCC 'Pres. Maynard reported on various important developments includ-
ing CAIC"'talks on LDMs and the European Common Market. Dr. Carmona of Ven-
ezuela reviewed progress he had made on the possible use of Dominican lije -
stone deposits. CAIC will meet here 18-21 Oct. Major amendments to CAR-.
IFTA Agreement were discussed, inc. benefits to smaller territories. The
meeting welcomed replies received from Black Power Group and N.Y.Council,

.NEVER ON SUNDAY by John Spector Continued from page two

If some fifty oavowners were to sue the C.H.P.A. or Government (which-
ever is the responsible body) all at one time for negligence -- what-
ever the legal outcome it might make this mentally and materially
insolvent Government stir itself and do what is known in polite parlia-
mentary language as "seek a-fresh mandate from the country", like Willi
Brandt is doing because of East-West negotiations and the Israeli murders.
Or more bluntly they could RESIGN.
The same criticisms about road repairs could be made of the Valley
road from the Police-Fortress to the Bridge and then the almost impass-
able road where the Fatima shrine used to be. Wotton Waven people say
that the Copt Hall bridge (makeshift due to hurricane damage) has to be
repaired every four to six months because the flimsy boards split. So
why doesn't Government put up the new bridge?. Wasn't it announced that
the money and the bridge parts had arrived from England nearly a year
Some day a truck may crash into the Roseau river at this point,
causing deaths or injuries. But never, I hope, on Sunday.

THE NATIONAL PARK IDEA -iby Rupert Sorhaindo M.Sc. continued fr,. pag.-~.
A National Park, developed along the model of an educational instit-
Sution, could well help to correct the deficiencies enumerated by me.
Programmes associated with such a Park could be designed to expose Dom-
inicans, in a more meaningful way, to their colourful but abused envir-
onment. This could be approached in such a way as to sensitize Domini-
cans to the tragedy of the despoiling of their 'paradise' of its beauty,
freshness and purity, so essential to their lives and their unborn gen-
erations. For it is essential that the people be convinced that. a regard
for'ecology would not work against their interests, but on the contrary
would enrich their lives, and ensure the preservation of plant and ani-
mal species.
'The use of 1ature Trails as a tool in the education of the public,
has been successful. Through this medium interesting and important
aspects pf p at-plant, animal-plant, or animal-animal relationships
can be vividly illustrated.
.Anothet educational'tool that could be made a feature of a 1National
Park is a. Museum of lNatural History. Such a. museum would provide the
public with glimpses into the past, illustrating for example how the
island was formed, and how it became colonized by -plant and animal
species. .
There .always seems to be an incipient. danger in the national park
idea, that:,if we preserve plants, animals and scenery within such an
area, we-need not bother elsewhere. .And.this danger is particularly real
in a place 'such as Dominica, where general ecology is not yet well known.
To avoid this, it would be essential for a- Dominica National Park to be
equipped with facilities for scientific research in such fields as
Agriculture, Public Health, Nutrition, pesticide and herbicide effects,
and control of parasites. Thus such a Park could serve as a focal point
for a reasoned, scientific approach to some of the many problems which
confront us, and at the same time serve as a valuable training ground
for local ecologists who could then.play an important role in helping to
direct the development of the island's resources along ecologically-
sound lines.
National Parks can assume different characters and can be designed
to serve different purposes. Thus some parks have been created specifi-
cally for the preservation of wildlife species. Others combine this with
a recreational or an educational function. The stress on the educational
role should, not be interpreted to mean that some of the more traditional
characters and functions of National Parks should not be incorporated
into and assumed by a Dominica National Park. As a tourist attraction,
such a park could conceivably contribute to the development of a healthy
tourist industry -.

STILL LIFE DRAWING: Another Courtroom Example by AL AKONG
Most of us, when we have a go at still life drawing, first take a
survey of all the objects before us, then make a general 'statement'
about them taken together. We do a very light,, sketchy outline of the
group as accurately as possible, and then start putting in.the details
to finish the drawing. I myself have tried this method of drawing with
still life, faces, figures and landscapes, but from the results, I al-
ways discourage anyone from starting a drawing that way,
Onceyou have made that accurate-as-possible sketch of all the objects
you should consider the drawing as finished,, and look at it as a good
exercise in perception (a group of objects in their.correct relationship
to: each other).
Now let us see why I am so strongly against this method of. approaching
a drawing. To do this,let's go back to that familiar place, the Court-.
room, and once again face our good friend, the magistrate. Let us sup-
pose that you have accused your enemy (or your erstwhile friend) of
commit ting a crime against you and you either want to put him.i. jail
or get some compensation money from him. Let us further suppose that
the accused has engaged one of the best lawyers in Dominica to defend
him, and let us suppose again that when the alleged act was committed
the accused was a certain significant distance from you and between
you and him there were first, a house, and then an automobile. Very
well: You think hard, and judge the distance between you and the ac-
cused at the time of the alleged act to be twenty feet, and you give
that statement to the Court.
The lawyer for the accused begins to questio.nyou. "How far was the
house from you?" ... You think hard 'again and give an accurate an-
swer of ten feet; this short distance was easy to assess. The lawyer
asks again, "And 'how far w.s the automobile from the house?"
As before, you think hard and give another accurate answer of twelve
feet; this short distance being also easy to verify because you compared
it with the distance between you and the house. The Lawyer asks again:
"And how'far was the automobile from the accused?"
You give another accurate answer of four feet: this was the easiest
distance to judge because you compared it with the distances between the
house and the automobile, and you and the house. But wait! Suddenly
you find'yourself in hot water: Loud and clear for the whole Court to
hear, the lawyer accuses you of coming to Court to tell a pack of fab-
rications (whatever that is)' Adding up those distances from the state-
ments you just gave could never make up the twenty feet, even.if you
were given generous allowances for your memory or your poor conception
of distances (and the lawyer stresses that failing). Now you realise
that if you had thought carefully, and taken those little distances-bit
by bit, as the lawyer made you do, before making that general statement
of twenty feet, you would have been more right than wrong in your assess-
ment of the distance between you and the accused; your evidence would
have been more convincing to the Court, you would have been spared.that
terrible experience with that lawyer and would probably have won the..case.
Something like what went on in our imaginary Courtroom usually hap-
pens when you start a still life, or any other type of drawing --using,
the method described at the start of this article. After you have made
that general outline of the objects as accurately as you can and then.
start over again to put in the smaller details, you usually find that
they never add up to make up the whole; not only that: once you have
made that 'general statement' of .those objects you will have to tell,
little 'lies' if your big statement is to hold true; so I never start
a life drawing in that way any more.
It is always best to start with the much smaller and easier to assess
details, and work outwards with great care; it is the most successful,
the surest method of getting your drawing right, and improving your skill
as a draughtsman.

MA TITINE (from page seven)
She stroked the mother hen on her
wings and was moving away when one
of the two red-gold Rhode Island
chicks popped up from the hen's grey
feathers. The mother hen behaved as
if she was at La Salette and had
seen a vision. Then another little
fluffy chick popped up. They were
not used to being sat upon by a bag
of warm feathers and flesh. They
climbed on top of the hen, who
clucked and pushed them under with'
her beak. The poor incubator Chicks
rebelled. But soon the mother hen
had them under control.
Reuben stood by biting his finger.
At last he said, "Titine, ou pa mal."
"Now dey is in society," said
Titine mysteriously. "An' wait on-
til de big black an* white cock who
always chasing' concubine in my
neighbour yard see dem children."

/ DTWHITE: Boys, nowi I'm"'back I want to take things in hand. Let us prepare
for the next election.
JUNIOR: But chief that is more than two years awa y.
DEL-HITE: You'll never make a good politician. Don't you understand that from
the first day you are elected you must lay the groundwork for re-elec-
tion. You must nurse your constituency. You"must put your relatives "
and supporters in key jobs. Use public funds to keep them happy. Plan
-each day as'though election was the next day. Understand?
CO-OP-I: But chief, can't we put into effect an overall development plan -
I mean houses for the poor, loans for the farmers, hospital facilit-
ies, all thase'things the opposition are offering?
DEWHITE: You noviceJ Isn't that'why they are still i opposition? You just
give the people holidays, nice national days -- and lie like hell. Lie.
Lie., lie...
SHERIDAN: Yes chief, but my people are getting fed up with all that.
DEWITTE: Cantt you think of a good lie? Don't you read our own newspaper?
There you'll get the right idea* The people like to hear when we fail
that we. can blame the old Baron government or the bourgeois like
Eugenia Charles..
CO-OP-I But that's so negative. Can't we do something? Our economy is lagging...
JUNIOR: 'Yes, I know you are after me because I am the responsible minister.
But we are an agricultural country. You as Iinister of Agriculture are
responsible for ensuring an increased agricultural involvement,
Qb-o0Pi: How can I do it when you spend more money on things other than agri-
'UNCHRISTIAN: A..*' nd education..?
CO-QP-I: Chrissie, wait your turn. To continue, you are undermining my mini-
stry. I believe purposely.
DEWHZTE: Listen gentlemen. You all talk too much, I want action as I told my
people at Colihaut. ActionI And NOW,
CO-OP-I: But I am all for action. You see we must show where we stand. Last
week three of us told the Castle Bruce people where .we stand, we are
with them in their fight and...
DEV1ITE: Right. That's right.... I agree ...
JUNIOR: Right Hell. Chief let's face the fact. This is the age of youth, but
youth must be guided. I will guide them. Many of.you are too old. Ie
must make a solid statement against those three who spoke for the
Castle Bruce people.
LITTLEJOHN: But how can you. This will look as though we are at loggerheads.
I cannot afford to lose my seat until I have paid for my house.
JUNIOR: Thatts not the question. If they take this, my land will go sooner or
later. So either you all refute the statement-or I resign now.
DEMIHITE: Sorry Junior, the statement stays.
JUNIOR: Alright, the statement stays and I return and- tell the people-.all
about you. By the way, how is it that Irss. DeWhite is not here: I would
like a drink?
DE1HITE: O.K. O.K. You winSA Draft that statement.
