In general it is rather foolish forbone newspaper to publicize
another even by means of attack. ;.But tan editorial appeared in tle .
Educator,...organ of the Leblanc LabodF.?arty, .on October..11 which .
really calls for a retort on several points.
The 'paper attempts to give the. impression that the strongest
opposition party in the Associate States -. the Dominica Freedom Party' -
is 'disunited' and.on the decline. *The faicts do not support thi .'
fabrication. One thousand new membership cards for new', members are
being rushed into print for the Freedom Party this week -I learn this
through the Editor of the Star, which is doing the-printing. A great
number of people, throughout the country are coming forward eager to
join. This -betokens resurgence and not decline.
Next, the L.P. organ refers to 'the indignity of the final retreat
of December 16th'. But there was no retreat^ at least not by" the" 7".
Freedomiteo, on or after Dec. 16. The people of Dominica won their
battle and a detested bill was never passed. That day is regarded as
a landmark-in social and political history,-and no amount of'hired
whitewash can obliterate that.
Members of the local Labour Party claim that they are socialist,
when it suits them to do so, and discard the tag or conveniently.
shelve it when a really ideological issue arises such as the Castle
Bruce affair. I regard the policy-makers of the Leblanc Labour Party
.as socialists but their followers as nothing at all, for the poor fel-
lows do not-;know where they are being led. And I qualify that by
adding that the ruling party here is NATIONAL 'SOCIALIST. There are
as we most of us know several kinds of socialism. Everything this
LLP has done proclaims it to be a national socialist party. The short-
form of ..national socialist was invented by the Germans: it is iNAZI.
It puts the State before the People and, *starting perhaps from a bene-
volent socialist concept, works itself through to a dictatorship. The'
Dominica Labour Party with all its early good intentions degenerated
into a national socialist party in the 1960s, It seems rather funny
that they style themselves as Social Democrats.
The interesting thing is that I am aware of several genuine
socialists of the social democratic brand who are leading members of
the broad-based Freedom Party and who see in it the only hope of social
justice for Dominica.,This does away with the insistence of the rulers
that Freedom is a capitalist oppressor, for such people would never
associate with oppressors, either of the right or of the left. In an
early speech when the Freedom Party wads inaugurated,.it was described
by one enthusiastic speaker as "a many-splendoured thing" and 80, as
far as my observation and experience has proven, it remains
*The impression given by that editorial which has called for my
retorts is that of apprehension. Coming from a party which hangs on to
and embellishes colointlist legislation, it. speaks of the people facing
"the nervous apprehension of the unrealities of< opportunist and irres-
ponsible radical opposition". Man, how twisted can you be? Of course
it is not only Freedom of which they are afraid, but of splinter groups
probably within their own ranks. At one moment they are worrying about
"splintering groups of radical socialist'.emerging, pursuing policies of
extremism", and the next second about "senseless reactionary politics".
I know that the object of the exercise is to- hold on to power through
belittling any form of opposition. But this time it will not work.
In the same issue there is an article by that fine West Indian
journalist Alister Hughes. And this is, how Hughes ends his piece on
'Put the People before the Party' which supports liberty of action
within the Assembly. West Indian Electors are becoming increasingly.
sensitive to the antics of fly-by-night politicians." (Contd. on. 4)

A TWISTED VIEW .,. "by John Spector (from -Dae ty.o)
"It hy- take time, but- eventually, politicians will be controlled by
those Who, fo 1b-iettter -r fP r worse, must be the final authority -
the epbple -1 "Its is roaic a to see this article appearing in the
same issue that editorial. "
,Theaiesat slogan of the Freedomf Party in 1968 was
c .. People before power
... People before politicians
S-. . ..People before privilege and things --
to which list :zHughes has added for us all: "People before Party".
S . *
I think the people of Dominica should know that while Asians are
being expelled from Uganda (and it's still going on)),a British electron-
ics engineer was ordered to leave 'this island.
He came here to work for Cable & Wireless, later leaving them to
take a job with a local firmm After. his contract with that firm
was earlier terminated, he did not have the work permit recently leg-
islated for. as: essential, and one was not granted to him. A C.I.D.
Inspector interviewed him and he was given orders to leave.
These. ae. the facts as. told to me by reliable friends, since I
do not know 'the gentleman personally. I am also told that he had given
shelter to a few underprivileged youngsters who were extremely upset
- by the- sudden removal of their benefactor. They are of course Domiiicans.
..A forced expulsion always has a sinister \ring, and because no
case is ever publicly made out at the time for its justification, it
always starts a.host of rumours. Supposing, for example, this man had
resisted the.-expulsion order and been arrested, he would have had to
appear before a magistrate.and have a charge laid against him, and in
the ensuing .examination some of the true facts might have come to light.
Dohe' in secrecy like that, it is just one of those national socialist
actions against which the spirit of any free man or woman revolts.

Pennants slung across the main
streets of Roseau give a festive im-
pression of the C.U. week which is
now being celebrated. After Services
on Sunday, a radio address by the
President on Monday and on that day
an official opening at Goodwill Par-
ish Hall attended by Ministers(plus
-a floor show), events moved through
school talks and further radio ad-
dresses, at Thursday' s grand birth-
day function certificates of. merit
were given out to faithful workers
and the 21-candle cake was cut.VIPs
were invited. On Friday there Jg
a panel discussion over the air at
9.30 pm, preceded by a cocktail party
for invited guests. On Sat.21st, a
dance at the Parish Hall .- entrance
$2.00, and lastly a Sunday picnic
at Macoucherie: transportation is
to be provided, but'members will
bring along their own food and drink,
A successful and well-planned week
to mark many years of splendid effcTt.
******** ****E************* <& il

Next week it will be the Dominica
Nurses' turn to observe their spec-
ial week, as they do yearly. The
opening ceremony will take place at
that most useful and capacious venue
Goodwill Parish Hall, on Sunday Oct.
22nd. The Nurses recently had a
3-day Seminar on the introduction
to Family Planning Methods at PMH
Nursing School Pan American Health
Organization provided personnel %o
assist with the lectures.

A release from the Poultry Pro-
ducers Co-operative Society Ltd.says
that recent "slight increases in the
wholesale & retail prices of eggs &
chicken" are due to rising costs of
feed because of increased freight
rates. With restrictions on imports,
and if Government implements the
development of a feed mill using
local ingredients,if a broiler pro-
cessing plant & hatchers are installed,
expansion will result. ***********

Fiction B 0- B..O J AC KE TMA A N.. by. Collins P. O'1eill,
eral years-, g6 a ioman named Florence gave birth to an only illegiti-
mate boychild whob. shlr'iied Boson. Young Boson di -not know his father, and
from about the age of ten his mother kept on telling him that his father was
dead. pThisti not-so. But i"- schoolmates had told him the truth of it all.
One of them claimed that his mother was an intimate friend of Boson's mother
*and that' through her he had learned one day the secret of that love affair
resulting in the birth of Boson. Boson had more thail one father, the cruder
boys alleged; but the name of'the right one he might" never' know.
When Boson was -si months old, his mother (so as to be able to go to work)
left him in the creche until he was seven. Boson grew to be a big boy,attended
'the Roseau Boys' School "where, through poverty his mother sent him to his
classes in a big" old jacket.. This. made his schoolmates whistle with cruel
glee and they soon found a name for him galling -hie "'Bo-B0 Jacketman".
Bo-Bo. 'resented this kind of fatigue, but since he could not do better his
only solution was .op 41break eeooheO or play touba' each school-day. Although
he was a bright ,by he goon:ceased 'to be a student.
Around 'the Cinemaj, B..Bo' Jacketman soon became VeAy'wel-known, and "to a
certain degree popular, since every night at the pit section, if Bo-Bo was not
around,. -his :pals did nhot dae enter without seeing him. 'One thing was though
he was 'unemployed. in- his' teens he never'missed a cinema show; 'nor even a local
talent showc... At'- east. wherever you go0 -look back and you are sure to see
Bo-Bo Jacketman p@ind you, .The local police were now keeping an, eye on'him
and intensified their vigilance in certain quarters, especially at night. But
*there came the tim'ewhh Bo-Bo, had to be apart from his. frien.s. He had vis-
ited the wrong place' one hight"- 'the rear walls of the Botanical.Gardens -
with a garden fork and a-pickake. He had already drilled a sizeable hole
through the rock and concrete' wall, skilfully stuffed' it back: with green leafy
1ines and grass and was making good his escape when a policeman driving a
joep pulled up aside' of him. The lawman shouted to him that he might be taken
into custody and asked him to hop into the jeep. 'Bo-Bo told the policeman he
was preparing for Ntional Day Celebrations at the Gardens,
"HI in, I say,' ordered the. policeman. After a show of' peluctanoe, Bo-
Bo threw his tool nAto-the back of, the jeep--and started -olimbing up when the
*officer ..t. ed i q "No It Hte shouted against "ILn here.-ACome hin front here."
As the jeep pulled out, the policeman continued, "What's your'name?"
"Bo-Bo." .... ,.'
"BoBo what?'" '
"Bo-BO Jacketman." -
"I mean"'ybur right.' name," the policeman said, toughly.
"Right name Boson," the boy replied.
"Where you live?" --
"In Newtong." ...
"In Newtown," the policeman repeated, reflecting, "and you came up hero
to steal?"
"I wasn't stealing," ..
"It's 11.30 in"the night. Why were you digging that hole in the wall, in
Government property?"
"I tolee you already*"
"Told me what?,"
"I said it was a hole for Sational Day. I'm not lying."
"I dont sundeortaid-that." ) "
"You see I'm not working. I have no money, so o drilled the hole and I
stuff it back'so I- can c6me anytime an' see the show in the Gardens. But be-
lieve me, Sir, I: wasn't stealing." .. .
"Very clever," said the policeman, after listening patiently, "You.-young
generation.donit 'want to work hard for a living Why didn't you go look for
a job with your pickaxe and fork, instead of trying to steal even a look at
a natioA3l show?"
S BoBQ.was. at a ls-s-and chuckled: "Sir."
"Whols your mother?"
Bo-Bo paused aLw-ile then said, "Sir, a lady named ILiss Florence."
"And your father?" Conclude, .on Page 20)

Dear Madam Editor, I was interest-
ed to hear "The French Invasions
of-Dominica"- over the radio spoken
in cultivated tones by a top Civil
Servant recently, but in none of
the instalments did I hear acknow-
ledgment of the author of that
-booklet 'Price .One Shilling, in- .
aid of the Dominica Infirmary',Its
author was Administrator of Domin-
ica and later.Governor of the Lee-
ward Islands -Sir Reginald.. St.
Joinston, KCMG. The mistakes in the
list of Governors of Dominica were
read as given-byt St.-Johnstoi in
his booklet; for instance Col.Tho-
mas Warner -Ja Indian Warner (half-
Carib) and General Mathieu St.
Aroment was Governor appointed in
1717 by the French.

Dear Madam Editor, Some time last
week I heard over the air that our
Marketing B4ard will be trying to
obtain some kind of contract with
the U.S.Virgin Islands to have our
reject bananas, ground provisions,
citrus and other fruits shipped and
sold there. We may even get a spec-
ial weekly boat for that purpose.
Another gooq item came over the air
that a company from Puerto Rico
will be trying to establish a can-
ning factory here. As we know,we
are having too much waste such as
bananas, breadfruits and grapefruit
in Dominica, while some of our grow
ers go begging.
We do pray that these two enter-
prises will become a reality.
Can this be true? It is mostly
on agriculture that this State cdAr

Madam,. I hope the Authorities of
the Cable & Wireless have now real-
ised the heed for a public telephone
in Mahaut. The inhabitants are many,
and telephone facilities are absol-
utely embaa ssing. The Authorities
should realise that it is some sort
of discomfort-to the public, to 'have
to ask "private subscribers to make
an urgent call,
Let's hope that they will give
a great deal of consideration to.
this appeal, and install a public
telephone at their earliest..conven-
ience. CECIL ST. JEAN, Mahaut.

Dear Editor, I wish to express my

Q on pruning: wise country folk
say-that there is no set time or
season for pruning. In general, cut
back after flowering, and do not cut

very dry season. Unlike the plant-
ing of seeds or slips, the wiseacres
don't relate pruning to the times of
the moon. Prune when it pleases you!
