THE DOMBEL PRI Z E by JOHN SPECTOR
So now I. know what the Premier has been doing during his three
months' vacation: writing a patois poem. This first came to light or
to the ear on Monday evening when Mr. Arlington Riviere, in tones of
awed respect, asked listeners to guess who the author was, revealing
the name at the end of a session and telling it over to patois list-
eners throughout the State again subsequently.
I guessed him as the author during the first stanza, not because
of the voice, which had a more frenchified cultural to4e than that of
the Premier's polit-ical village speeches.; perhaps Mr. Leblanc has been
taking refresher courses from Dr. MWller in private or from. some noted
Guadeloupean confrere. What bugged me was the classicist form of the
ode, so that at one time I thought it was a patois translation from
Dr. Thaly read by Mr. Randall Lockhart' Then I thought no, it's too
chauvinistic for Dr. T. and Mr. L. would not do that sort of thing.
It was quite long, too, and will doubtless appear in pamphlet form.
I must congratulate the Premier on its infinite superiority to his
English verses.
In my honest opinion this poem qualifies for what should be named
the Dombel, not the Nobel, prize of this island; prizegiving is in
the air and lots of people whose criteria are rather feeble are sit-
ting in judgment on other people. No-one will ever ask me to be a
judge, because I am too cantankerous and too critical. Still, it
would appear that this Dombel prize was awarded in advance, since (if
the supposition in my first sentence above is correct) the creation
of this patois poem cost the people of Dominica $36,000 i.e. three
months of the Premier's salary, allowances not included. A noble and
well-rewarded effort.
We don't need a poet laureate here, because the Premier has al-
ready crowned himself in the vernacular.
*
Subduing his usual hilarity, Jeff Charies recorded an appeal for
listeners viemvon the anniversary of Radio Dominica's inauguration,
November 1stb Were you at that sparsely attended function for inu.
vited guests? Well I was (perhaps) but I don't want anyone to check
the guest-.st, for the function's main point was rebroadcast lavishly
and with intention. It had to do, not with the formation of a national
broadcasting station for Dominica (that received brief references) but
with the GRENADA DECLARATION. It came during a year when the Premier
was alleged to have made a declaration that he did not associate with
failures. Well, the Grenada Declaration was a failure from the word
GO and the word GO was the inauguration of Radio Dominica. The
people of Dominica -- and let us admit that they were ably inspired
and supported by the Freedom Party vociferously rejected that mis-
guided plan to tie us up with Grenada, St. Kitts and Guyana and a
couple of other States who soon saw the red light and opted out. THAT
was the big event and statement of November 1st 1971, and today it is
a failure, as dead as a doornail, and Mr. Gairy is in London negotiat-
ing insular independence. The Dominica people are genuinely happy-
go-lucky, forgiving types, bless them all. In most democratic countries
any leader who made such a complete flop of a plan and of himself would
have been on the way out long ago.
What I think Radio Dominica ought to do on Nov. 1 1972 is to re-
play the whole recording of that inaugural function (even at the risk
of boring thousands of listeners again), including the pious Ecumenical
prayers, the preamble by a civil servant, the visitors' remarks (inter-
esting at times, particularly about Marconi) and above all the full
text 'of the Premier's speech. Then people would really get the event in
perspective. And may I add that Radio Dominica has done better than
I expected, even with all its faults -after such a start. (Contd. v.4)

THE DOMBEL PRI Z E by JOHN SPECTOR from page two
Now listen to what the Educator in its 19th issue (of Nov.3, 1971)
had to say on that lamentable matter, under the heading "A iEW STAR IS
BORN" (p.10, 3rd para. rt.hand col.) "The Day, however, waa climaxed by
the moving ceremony of the opening of Radio Dominica and the momentous
f announcement of the Premier, E.O.LeBlanc of the Declaration made
as a- result of a meeting of Heads of Governments in Grenada' which an-
nounced the decision to form a West 1ndian Nation of Guyana, The Wind-
wards and St. Kitts presaged the formation of a constitutent assembly
charged with responsibility of drafting a constitution WITHIN SIMREEiN
MONTHS."(My caps.)"... Amidst applause the wife of the Premier, Mrs.
Edward LeBlanc, cut the tape and drinks were served..." But not to me,
Subsequently a grey pamphlet, as dismal as the outlook it envisaged,
with an introduction by Mr. Arlington J. Riviere, and paid for at the
taxpayers-l expense, -set-forth in some 20 pages the whole Tandangle of
the plot of the Grenada Declaration. It confirmed how firmly the reput-
-ation of the Premier was tied to the success or failure of this scheme.
So -- the Dombel Prize for Poetry, and the Dumbell Prize for the
Grenada Declaration. And I have mentioned the latter historic flop in
detail for the benefit of the young, who may never even have -heard of
it, so suddenly was it dropped, in the hope that it would be forgotten.
My dear young friends, it was dropped because the people of Dominica
would have nothing to do with it.
*E *
On the subject of a different and heftier printed booklet, one
can get considerable amusement out of the new Tariff Act and its
schedules. It contains some wonderful legal gobbledygook like this in
the Birst Schedule; "iAy reference in a heading to an article shall be
taken to include a reference to that article incomplete or unfinished,
provided that, as imported the incomplete: or unfinished article has the
essential -character of the complete or finished article."
As they say over a current spot-the-tune commercial,'Did you get it?'
Our readers will be amazed to hear that Ice and Snow are subject
to a General Duty of 30% and a Preferential Duty of 20% (and are precip-
itated by the gallon!). Among other curious anomalies, Communion Wafers
are dutiable (Gen. 30%, Pref. 20%); this would seem to be discriminating
against Anglicans who use wafers in favour of other denominations
who use ordinary bread.
The most irritating part of the whole, of -this Brussels Nomenclature
is the lack of any kind of index, or even some sort of guiding rule'
which would allow you to get within a page or two of the species of goods.
being checked ona- for -instance-I should. have- thought that fire-exting-
uishers were an important life-and-property-saving factor in an island
with so many wooden houses; I find refills for fire-extinguishers dutiable
Gen. 10% Pref. 5%, -but nowhere can I find fire extinguishers themselves!
And I trust that the .customs men will find time to count the number of
matches in each imported box, because the General Duty is 50% for up to
30 matches in a box and 60% from 31 to 70 matches in a box: why not
give them a real job to do and call the duty 1% per match in each box:
Mechanical devices for spraying liquids or powders, such as "Spray Guns
and the like" carry 22% Gen., 15% pref. but- "Others" are Free; why not
state Agricultural Spraying machines (Free) 0o that' there is no amlguity.
Those who are in the habit of .putting on "good smell foh cover up
bad smell" as a shrewd villager once described her cherished bottle
of perfume to me will find the device increasingly expensive. Scent
and perfumes are among the single. luxuries of life which are bound to
rocket in price.
,. ,h, and by the way, the next time, you want to import any "Bombs,
grenades, guided weapons and. missiles" you must pay 70% duty.-

Dear Editor: WINNING GOES BY FAVOUR

There is an old saying that
kisses go by favour, but it must
now be established thst Winning goes
by Favour tpo. I was in audience at
the Wesley Government schoolroom on
the evening of Mon.16th Oct. when
the three singing competitors of
the North Eastern Division viz:Mar-
igot, Webley and C alibis ie pres-
.ented what they had come to offer.
On the termination of the com-
petition, I concluded that the Cal-
ibishie Group was the winner; but
when one of- the two Judges went to
the microphone to disclose his de-
cision, he was observed to be very
reluctant tp do so,
His declaration of the Marigot
Group having won the competition
raised great suspicion among the,
audience. Tpe ppular opinion (even
of the people who had no technical
knowledge of music) was that the
Calibishie Group was the winner,
Among other faults, the conductor
of the Mari:ot Group turned to the
audience an1 sang one verse of the
"Alto Solo" part of the contested
piece. .Thergfore I fail to see how
the gouqp bOuld have scored points
against Cal.bishie when they should
have lost ppints.for that glariihg
breach. Thore was also a tbtal
absence of Stage presentation,
I was interested enough to wish
'to hear the number of points scored
by the individual groups under the
five different headings; unfortuno-
ately that was not disclosed,
-Members of.the Marigot Group
themselves should admit without hes-
itation that they failed and even
lost.,to Wesley.
I 'think that there was an over-
sight on the part of the two Judges,
or rather there may have'bee. a.spec-
ial reason why the Marigot Group was
given'the win.
Let the truth be the truth be-
cause, it is manly and right and
let Justice prevail for God's sake.

Dear Editor: RENDER UMb CAESAR...
When I was born (in Barbados)
the Anglican Church there was7 still
a sort of State Church, part of the
British Establishment. I felt glad
later that I belonged to a minority
Church of that land (Roman Catholic)
for I did not believe that State &
Church should mix,
Now I see that through CADEC
the various churches in the Carib-
bean are welding themselves into
a-sort of arm of the authorities,
meddling in development and doing
more about practical welfare than
about spiritual things. I cannot
help feeling that this is wrong and
may lead to the churches rendering
unto Caesar the things which are
God's. I do hot know whether I have
invented that expression or not,but"
it certainly.troubles me,
Let me admit with the priests &
ministers-that poverty and under-
development are among the curses of
our times. But are the churches
tackling them in Christ's way? Are
they not -rather doubling up with
the State or states and tackling
them.4n Caesar'b way, to the great
advantage of Caesar?
