Anybody who imagined that the Reverend Atherton Didier, returning
to his homeland as Superintendent of the Methodist Church, would be a
mere aging figurehead, must have had a few shocks lately -provided of
course that such a person was a churchgoer or even a radio listener.
In the morning Harvest Festival of his church (which was broadcast
over Radio Dominica during the evening), Rev* Didier attacked in true
evangelical manner the immorality and vulgarity prevalent in our midst
on a national scale, while there are those who lack the bread of life.
Earlier he had shown his concern for the physically and spiritually,
hungry as ,a guest speaker in the .pulpit of St. George's Anglican Churc.
-This is only one of the things, but perhaps the most important, which.
marks the return of Mrs. Eva Didier s much-respected son and ,his family
(not forgetting Mrs. Joan (Didier) Mallalieu whose paintings and work' on
the Arts Council have won public recognition and plaudits). It is a
gratifying thing to"welcome back talented and outspoken members of a-
community; one .day we hope.- but I imagine that day is far away --
to welcome back Rev. Philip Potter, General S.ecretary of the World
Council of Churches, to. his own native shores'. ,
Dr. Potter had a hard time before BBC television the other day,when
he had to defend the'World Churches'on several points; he was a worthy
opponent of several sharp interrogators, but I must mention two matters
on which I myself have, never been entirely satisfied. That Was the de-
cision of the W.C.C. to aid the African Freedom movements by giving
money which could be used for arms. Money fore arms .has never seemed
to me a particularly Christian form of action, however worthy the cause.
.And when. a Negro or African questioner asked "'why not then give-money
to the Black Panthers in America,as well as those fighting the South
African segregationists", I felt a point had been made, and was not
entirely happy about .the reply. Another thing which unsettled me was a
question hinting that the WCG.C. did,not engage itself overmuch in the,
horrible religious-national war in-Ireland. I seem to know the answer-
to that one it is of course that; -Roman Catholics are not members of
the W.C.C., which makes it.idifficult for that body to intervene with any
effectiveness (and by< intervene' I do not mean armed intervention)
in that virulent internecine 'strife. It would be like the United nations
trying to solve a globally imminent war without the cooperation of
Russia or America,.
I write these lines on the Tuesday after the national holidays which
begann last Friday," Discovery Day,, anddragged on through Saturday carni-
val and Sunday hangover," Unlike almost every one-of my friends I did
not absent myself entirely from t'he"proceedings. Out of curiosity I had
a look at the. crowds, listened to >some `Of the many speeches;, saw the
attempts at protest, :and. :demonstration, .noticed the non-involvement of
'the Opposition ik. ;any of the events (save for a few jump-up addicts),
and made a note of the NATIONAL POVERTY DAY banner which the Police
removed from the hands of a trade unionist.
The Government which had turned the occasion into the celebration of ..
five years of statehood may well %'at its- own bulky back on the achieve-
ment of a fairly successful national fete. Expensive, of course, and
'many people who had no bread' drank rum instead; the distinguished visi-
tors from far places of the 'earth were based in relatively nearby spots
like Barbados (U.S.A.) St. Lucia (British Representative) Lesotho (Wash-
ington) and so forth. Those who were invited sent polite messages in
some cases *.. Edward Heath, Trudeau (standing on one foot in Canada at
present) and the like ... people who could not possibly have come anyhow.
Those who spoke at the Gardens harped on the unity theme -probably they
had a tip-off, and Miss Donovan of USA cut hers very short it' was
just before the motorcycle boys revved up and the banners were taken down.
But all in all it was successful, especially for Ministers and Civil Ser-
vants from the Governor down who had worked so hard to make it so.

Short Story HORROR IN LIVING COLOUR: by Verieux Mourillon *
Blaize and Irving were sitting at the back of a little rumshop in
the country playing dominoes, for there was nothing else to do since
most of the other members of their group, Schleu-Schleu, had gone up to
town for school. They had been playing for quite a long time; the game
began to get boring, so Blaize (who was known as 'Arrow') suddenly came
up with an idea. He suggested that they go hunting manicou. The two
friends rounded up George (known as Caco), a member of the group: and
they set out with two dogs and a flambeau.
There was hardly any light from the moon yet, and as they left
the inhabited section and plunged upwards and outwards, it became quieter
The only sounds were those of their footsteps and voices -the latter
almost drowning the former. Arrow was saying "Boy, if you see we ketch..
manicou we making a mess tonight self." As soon as he said so he noticed
that a big black sow with about thirteen piglings was crossing the palth
before them, seemingly in no hurry. The dogs were powerless to chase
them; they just stood staring. Irving also saw the pigs and he and Arrow
began making motions in order to shoo away the creatures, but all in
vain. The pigs did not speed up. Arrow got angry and he began picking up
stones., Oaco suddenly shouted: "What is wrong with you guys? You all
gone craw?"
Arrow shouted back: "You want to say you not seeing all those pigs-
in the way?"
"What pigs?" asked Caco, and Arrow came to realize that the pigs
were not natural, for Caco could not see them! So he stepped back a bit
and mashed Caco's big toe. Only then were the pigs visible to Caco.
"Those pigs not natural fellow, I cutting out," Caco said.
"You better has," Arrow told him. "You know how you coward already."
But in his heart of hearts he knew he was slightly afraid. He had to be.
Each of the three had his fears.The silence was pressing. There were all
sorts of ghastly shadows. An ideal place for the D.... to be. Caco shiv-
ered, but in order not to be branded a coward he hung on. "After half an
hour the pigs cleared off from the track, and the boys continued. Again
there was complete silence.
In a shaky voice Caco whispered: "Fellas, we not going to catch
manicou tonight; let us go back." But the others did not answer they
kept going on. Suddenly, shattering the solemn serenity, came- the sound
of a horse rearing through the bushes, and a man dressed in white mounted
on a white horse appeared Pight before them, and he allowed the horse to
prance up and down in front of the boys. Again the dogs were powerless.
Irving had a cutlass, but he couldn't do a thing. Without a lot of guts
the boys could not stand the horror. It was not really 'guts' but the
fear of being called cowards which kept them hanging on. The man's eyes
began to glqw, and every now and then he spat some fire from his mouth.
The boys were trembling violently. But in a few moments the man on the
horse was gqne. When Caco recovered he muttered hoarsely: "That does it,
pardners. I cutting out for self this.time," One of the dogs was his,
so it followed him back home.
Arrow said to Irving: "'Boy, I never- see a boy coward like Caco. He
always cutting out on us like that. If he think a blinking guitar is a
damn flute, he will see when we go back." The two boys proceeded on the
hunt, but with every step they expected something. They could not turn
back -now. Suppose it was someone playing a joke?
They heard voices behind them, then a rumbling. They looked backfor
a moment. In that same moment they heard VLADDAMT'' But when they turn-
ed their heads again to gaze in front, there lay a coffin and a half-
dressed skeleton. Arrow gasped and Irving nearly screamed on beholding
the horrible sight. The skull was grinning in a vicious manner. This
finally made Irving scream, but the scream did not sound. He couldn't,
He stole a glance at Arrow, but the only thing that could be deduoed
from his expression was sheer curiosity. Arrow bent down to touch the
coffin but his hand went right through it. (Cocluded on page six)

School. He has already published another 'supernatural' tale in th

.NATIONAL POVERTY A1iD PROSPERITY by John Spector (from p.2)
The national lottery may also be considered a success for the
Government or rather for the Leblanc Labour Party, since most of the
tickets were promoted and sold by members of that organization, its
Women's Auxilliary having won two prizes of $300 & $200 for selling the
most tickets etc. And doubtless the prizewinners (not excluding Miss
Sablon of Mero who has eight children --so we are told and who won
the top $5,000 prize will vote Labour next time or eved, if the LLP
still conscripts paying members, join the ruling party. This lottery
or sweepstake, on which the Cabinet Becretary at one time expressed
doubt as to whether the $15,000 worth of prizes would be covered, net-
ted $84,000, which represents 48,000 tickets at 50 cents each. If one
could think that all the losers would vote Freedom, that would be some-
thing! But all the world seems to love not a lover but a gamble, and
there's always the thought "it might be me next time". t've never been
a national lottery lover myself, and was always glad that Britain, un-
like France, despises so far that form of popular charlatanry. It is
tepid comfort to know that the 'excess over expenditure' will go to
a National Arts fund. And speaking of funds, it would be healthy to
see what the whole cost of this national stir-up really sa: I mean
the whole thing entertainment and hospitality (VIP guests) and all
the little odd things mixed up in the gala affair.
The cost in car crashes on this memorable occasion has been high;
I extend sympathy to the victims --it's part of the festival price.
Luckily I cleared out of town before the reported clash between two
rival road gangs at jump-up time; one from River Street and the other
from Loubiere, I understand. The nasty part of this confrontation, I
"learn, is that one of the wounded men was set upon again after he had
been treated in Emergency at PMH. Something new in our social behaviour.
A posse of young boys who invaded Goveriment House grounds asking for
food were declared by one of their number to have been brushed off by
the Police. The youngsters understood that G.H.'belonged to the people'*
So it was pleasant to escape to the cool dripping countryside. Along
the coastal road little pockets of frustrated celebrants beat tins and
"reeled along amiably. They looked poor. They were poor. But they had
been told that it was a time of national rejoicing, so they attempted
to rejoice.
I had with me, besides my transistor radio and a bag of foodstuffs,
two publications: one was the paperback by Nancy Mitford on the life
and times of Louis XIV of France- "The Sun King". My bookmark was at
chapter VII 'A City of the Rich', and it began: "While the terrible
events described in the last chter were happening, the King, outwardly
calm and unruffled, was settling into his new home." But I never read
another line on Saturday and Sunday. I preferred, like Walt Whitman,to
live with the animals .., and spent a lot of time bird-watching and
trying to prevent little village boys from killing off the same birds
with their catapults. I had read the second publication beforehand,
anyhow a good dollar's worth indeed: the new DIES DOMIAICA. It has a
fine cover picture by Alwyn Bully, but i won't give you a long line of
talk on it now, since someone else will no doubt review it for the STAR.
I cannot however resist repeating a joke told me by the publisher, Whose
adopted Carib son said at home, "Mum, you must serve a husband notice
on Dad, he has been writing articles in Leblanc's propaganda magazine,"
Incidentally, the articles by R.E.Allfrey were first published in the
Dominica Herald in 1962, I am informed.
As a postscript to my remarks above on national lotteries, I am re-
minded that one of Michael Manley's first acts on becoming Prime Minister
of Jamaica was to abolish his country's national lottery. As a socialist
he did not feel that a national sweepstake was in accordance with his
Party's policies since it discourages thrift, encourages gambling, is
economically unsound, takes the poor man's money and concentrates it in
a few pockets.

While Arrow bent over he heard
whispered words coming from the
skeleton: "These-a is-a yoh lass-s
waning, Blaize go back home!"
When the last word was said, the
coffin vanished. Two incentives now
prompted the boys on: to be proved'
brave, and the satisfaction of their
curiosity. So they continued follow-
ing the paths, but Blaize-Arrow had
no peace. He kept asking himself,
"How did that Thing know my name?
What it mean by 'this is your last
wgrning?"'2he questions troubled him
over and over.
All of a sudden a large ball of
flames appeared before them and be-
gan rolling away, ahead. They felt
compelled to follow it, walking quids-
ly and then at a steady jog: the
Jack o' Lantern had power over them
It kept rolling away faster and fas-
ter and they ran after it, increas-
ing their speed, for half an hour-
-right through the bush. Theni it van-
ished and they found themselves face
to face with a horrible creature that
was half human being and half goat.
It had long rugged teeth and long
fingernails. From stories they had
heard before, they realized that this
was the Devil. Strangely enough he
was not black, but a ghostly white
ii colour. Did I say colour? Well,
not really, for you could not des-
cribe it as colour.It was a foggy-
like substance.
The boys remembered the various
prayers they had learned, but on try-
ing to say them they found that their
tongues had become heavy and no words
came. They tried the Sign of the
Cross but their hands could not move
...nor could their feet. They were
stuck to the spot. Master D began
advancing. Their bellies froze.

Next morning the corpses of Blaize
(Arrow) and Irving were found wedged
between the trunks of two trees.Cer-
tain organs from their body were mis-
sing and a look of great fear mixed
with great pain was their last facial
When George was informed of this
all he said, in a very solemn manner,
was: "Boy, I always hear, when you
fight today and run away you live to
fight another day. I sorry but I
couldn't helr. If they had listen to

Review: A RT Talent in Dominic a
by Robert B.Allfrey
The Art Exhibition at the new
Police Station suggests that the
Government should beQ inspired to
make this building into an Arts Cen-
tre, and sink Mr. Leblanc's quasi-,
military fears at the bottom of the
Freshwater Lake.
Dominica's Fine Art has made tre-
mendous progress in the last five
years, thanks to people lite Jim
Murray, Mr. Milota, other outside
teachers and our own Gilda Nassief,
whose wide technical experience,var-
iety of styles and media made her
the obvious queen of the exhibition
and confirmed her in the top rank of
Caribbean artists. Augustina Edmund
(whose work is much admired), some-
times fuzzes her composition in de-
tail;perhaps she lacks aerial per-
spective in landscaping; however her
work pleases many. I myself was pleased
by "Dominica Awakening" but would
have titled it "Women's Lib"I Still
among the 'professionals', I found I
liked best of Alwyn Bully's consid-
erable work "Country Girl", for its
effective high key in primary dolours
by pallette knife so simple in ef-
fect, so difficult in execution.Very'
good also was his Degas-like Quadnmei
The uneven quality of Dominica-born
Joan Mallalieu surprised me with some
obvious faultse..then came the brill-
iantly executed "Down in the Clearing"
effective study of soft woodlandlt

'riILL LIFE DRAWING: The. Impor-tnce: "of Agles : Geometric Forms- ,
-"'-.. Art .and Siple Geometry. --,. -.by AL AKONG .

I ft is om timhe sihce, I promised ybj-to approach our object draw-
:iD in the way I consider' the most -successful; first let.,us learn about
'sone'&.i-ttle things which we have to,-use when we try this method.'
.. O p them, which I was made aware. of in art school, was .noting
S-:ngl: .magde by'the straight: sides" of objects, either with the hor-n
izotal- abletop.on which they rested, or with some other ho~zont al .
reference line, or, straight portions of. other adjacent objects. I had
reache&dthe stage where I could make a fairly passable drawing from a
group of objects, but at the end. of each drawing I could always. dis-..
dover.a lot of things I- did wrong in it, yet I just couldn't see how .
I hadiallowed those things, to .happen right-before my eyes. One night,
the teacher ,went through one of those drawings with me and together we; ':.
checked every angle made by every two straight lines that met, and he -"
pointe. out to me all the flagrant 'lies' that I had.told with those, -,
angles (remember hodw I likened bad drawing..t6 telling lies int law
court?) .*.* so my-instructor showed, me how- these artist's misstatements.
had contributed 'in no small way towards all the. other rather elusive
mistakes I. made all over the drawing..
As untrained draughtsmen,,-most of. us will probably never discover
the importance of those -apparently .triVial.' angles, and how they can
decide the -success -of .a drawing, unless someone else points it all out
to us. We become so preoccupied with getting-the shapes and sizes of
the objects themselves that -it becomes hard for us to think beyond
that. Once we. start to recognize those angles as part of the-.geneaal-
plan6 then most of the mystery and .difficulty surrounding the making of
a correct drawing will disappear.
Now I have a habit of looking for the angle formed by the two most
prominent lines or straight' edges..of any two, objects when I start a
still lifee- drawing I..take a ,lot of .care t ..get this angle as accur-
ately as possible, because I.know that every other subsequent.move will
be affected by it. .
Now to copy accurately any of'those angles (seen among a goup of'
objects)1.s not always a simple..matter,.especially if they are more or
less than t.e familiar right angle'-. 'n these cases what you must do is
to take the:-.two extremes of' the lines opposite.to where they meet to
form the .'angle, and imagine a line connecting them to form a closed
triangle. Look.at. -this triangle well;' and ask yourself some questions:
Is'it anIsopceles triangle? ... a scalene. triangle? ...* an equilateral
triangle? ... Then,. is it. right-angled? ... obtused., angled .... acute
angled? Get into the-habit of forming an imaginary triangle every
time you find-two straight, or almost .straight lines, or sides of ob-
jects, meeting; once you set out-on this 'triangle hunting'- mission,
you will find more- triangles than you can cope with --but above all,
learn to recognize thdse angles by their magnitudes., .
Looking for triangles only is not. adequate enough to help us dif-
ferentiate any group. 6f objects.placed. in.front.of'us: we must look
for other geometric shapess as well, and not because we love to use our
imagination, but because those, shapes are really there. You will begin
to see (though.sometimes' distorted to a certain extent) other things-
like quadilaterals --squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapeziums, circles,
and ellipses. Sometimes shadows cast ,by the Objects will assume these
f'orms,sometimes the -objectse themselves.' -can be seen as those- geometric
forms. When you get the .true dimensions without your really having to
think of them-as -What .they-are -arriving at the. true 'proportions 'of
those figures (the db jects .in- yor- drawing).- ,*subconsciously through
the method I hate.eddscribed, you have gone a long way ....
Once you have the idea of :looking at a group,, of objects as an
'integration of simple geometric shapes',- you should not carry that an-
alogy too far. Resortto the geometrical-way..of thinking only when you
are drawing objects with which you 'arc not'too familiar, or whenever you
are.'faced with a group of extra-cdmplicated objects.
(Ne-xt Installment: Nice things to do with simple geometry).
