A Bitter-Sweet Reality
Poem by Garfield Giraud
Another child is born
To an unwed teenage mother
Living in a rented room
In a rat infested Roseau slum.
One more mouth to feed
After a joy-fi!led christening
With plenty of -rum
And the latest calypso music.
But life goes on
Time makes that child an unwed mother
Or another bastard's father
Poverty becomes slum landlord
Crying baby, rats and rum,
: Christening in a rented room
With the latest calypso music:
A bitter sweet reality.

A D.V I C E by John Spector
I think it was Lord Chesterfield who wrote to his son: "Advice is
seldom welcome; and those who want it most always like it the least".
This applies very much to Westindian Governments, even from way back
in 1952. That was the time when the Burra Land Usage Report was pre-
sented -- before ministerial government even. Now with independence
for all practical purposes (other than making complete international
idiots of ourselves) and full ministerial government, advice is even
less welcome and more likely to be ignored, With the youngest Minister
the only one with a higher education, three with some secondary school-
ing, tailing off with ministers (acting or otherwise) practically
illiterate, it is all important, that vicee be sought and acted upon.
The Editor has an enormous number of reports on different subjects
relating to Dominica but there has seldom been a report that has been
acted upon. As an example, I have seen a 1955 report by vulcanologist
Robson on the potentialities of the hot springs and Boiling Lake in
terms of thermal power. & release about two years ago informed the
,public that an UN team wepere to investigate the same possibilities -
mn report of their findings was ever published. With the exhaustion
of fossils fuels likely, through technological luxury and war, within
the next century, even the U.S.A. is investigating the use of geothermal
power in Yellowstone Park and other fumerole districts, Dominica's
hydro plants are vulnerable to landslides, flash-flooding and drought,
and diesel plants have to use imported fossil fuels as standby and on
line "temporary" expansion units. Our vaunted 365 rivers, are really
only some ten rivers, 100 dry beds and 255 streams few, if any, of
. these latter could produce as much as one kilowatt of power. That" Is
a personal observation. Doubtless, buried in the archives, is a report
which could confirm this with all the technical data --perhaps C.D.C.
has made, such a survey in the past.
Incidentally it is rumoured that Minister Leslie is tired of sign-
ing things he doesn't, understand and might retire back to Portsmouth,
giving Minister John a chance to be Home Affairs (which means that he
can be judge and jury on Labour affairs, as an active Trade Unionist)
-- and then Parl. Sec, John Ro-yer can have a short spell at Communication
and Works in order to get'a higher pension on retirement from his consti-
tuency (in favour of Finance Minister Armour for the next election),
Waye, Waye, it may be legal, but is it boat in the interest of Dominica
and her citizen taxpayers?
The same query applies to the childish provocation of the Layou
River Hotel incident. Does it benefit Dominica to try and give one of
our few hotels a bad name (one with all-Dominican staff, including the
best cook on the island andy I believe, all-Dominican investment) simply
for reasons which hint at a vendetta? Presumably the poor taxpayer
will have to pay for most of the food contracted for --pelshd lbes for
550 guests, bought, prepared and nearly ready for the buffet?

Government Releases are a subject one could go oA about for a long
time. I have collected quite a series from the Editor. Many of the
releases are of no news value whatsoever, such as "Two Ministers"
(having presumably nothing better to do) "visited/inspected a section
of the Dublanc-Bioche Road" or "the Blenheim-Moore Park feeder road
system.' Just self-aggrandisement, keeping their names before the public.
Another vague one says that the C.T.O. Mr. Lawrence went to Barbados for
three days earlier about a steel beam for the new packing plant. It
stops there, and one does not find out if he has come back, or if he has
got the beam, or if he is. still haggling with the British Development
Division. In other words no follow-up to the story. Another one tells
that the Chief Medicos of the Caribbean met here to discuss, smoking and
mental health PERIOD (although it goes on for over 150 words to say it).
So, what did they decide?

TOURISTS AiD OUR EIBVIR01\1EN'T by LAIDSMA ,..
Sometime agoI'.I- listened with great interest to a radio -talk
between Daniel Caudeiron anda -Herb Hiller, of the Caribbean-Travel -l
Association, and I .was very much in accord both with Mr.' Cauideiron's
.questions:and with Mr. .Hiller's suggestions, as to the direction tourism
might take.here. For, having spent four years in the Virgin IslaAds:
:and having seen the travesties that have.-been created" of-those' islands
by.uncontrolled and excessive tourism built around a stereotyped image
of what a Caribbean holiday is supposed to be, .1 became 'very sceptical
of the ultimate benefits of tourism at all, for it seemed to me an
industry which very quickly destroyed the roots of an island's culture
and life. style.
There are, however, definite benefits which we all' recognize, and
the point. I would like to make is that tourism should be, above all
things, controlled.
By .control, I. mean several things. First, sheer numbers.. While
at present the hotels can accommodate many more tourists then they do,
they ought, to make sure how much they can absorb without stress, and
try to stay as. a group) under some sort of agreement, within.these
confines. This is not to say. that new guest houses etc., 'should not be
-thought 6f," but for- the island's general welfare, some ultimate ceiling
ought to be realized. Sheer numbers, assuming that eventually this
Should, occur,...would quite easily destroy-the island's very.character,
.and leave ultimately a. wake Of debris behind, to which the tourist him-'
self would no longer return, seeking only to 'find newer and more peace-
ful spots;' .as in all .tourists there lurks (st.ill)-a latent desire to
'discover "
Perhaps a clear approach should be made to the.potential tourist
beforehand, so that he is well aware of what to .expect. and. consequently,
.nly those people who are sincerely interested in, the outdoor life, who
don't wish t&. indulge in senseless buying or' ceaseless nightlife-will
be the. people who will elect to come. Thus the wheat can be convenient-
ly separated from the chaff prior to arrival- the.-presence of those who
do come 'will not override and destroy an inherent culture b. forcing it
:,to seek false values for its own, entertainment.
These really are the points I wished to make, for it. seemed to me
that those tourists who come to a place with a .'sincere desire to. see and
:bserve, who make every effort 'to fit in" with local rulegoa.d customs,
who do not make unreasonable demands., are those one-part with regret.
These' I feel are the type of people Dominica- should try to, attract.
As, Mr. Hiller .observed, people interested in these..things so .far
have tended to come from an income bracket which has enabled, them to .
observe objectively, and work constructively against, the environmental
crises in their own home countries, &alid who consequently will .treat an.
unpolluted one with greater respect. 'It i's an axiom that .if high saan-
dards are set, they. are far easier'to maintain ..which pehaps has, been
ne. of.the tragOdies of the other, islands.
Dominicai-s .in a unique position to start off at the head-of the'
.scle. .It is unspoiled anad this is something that has become more
and more rare. "Other'islands1 fragile beauty has been trampled and
ruined past' recall for the sake-- of 'mass tourism'. This should not
happen here.. A pride .in one 's own home state should be kept- and main-
tained, and if, as Mr..Hiller suggested, .everyone felt that he -.artici-
pated -and: was,, in a sense, a host, there would be interest and concern,
and benefit on all sides behefJIting. the island generally.
It perhaps is likely that-:if Dominica 'clearly assesses from the
start the quantity and calibre of tourist it is prepared to.'receive,
there. will be. a slower but steadier increase over -the years 'as people
returnand other- people, hear. about i-t.,- (co-Qh .d .con..pags -. )

\ MOMENT OF INSPIRATION
I Read: Nehemiah 4:1-6
WORKING WITH ENTHUSIASM
. the people had a mind to work. Nehemiah 4:6
ONE of the contributing factors in Nehemiah's striking
success was the attitude of the builders. "The people
had a. mind to work." Apparently they gave them-
selves wholly to the task at hand with results which were
outstanding. Love for God and true zeal made them will-
ing to do what no tyranny could have compelled them to
accomplish. "Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do with
thy might" (Eccl. 9:10) seems to have been their com-
Spelling creed!
A young man who was "down and out" stood listlessly
on a bridge watching some anglers. He was poor and de-
jected. Seeing a basket filled with fish he sighed, "Now if
I had those I-would be happy. I could sell them at a fair
price and buy food and get a lodging place." "I'll give you
as many and Wust as good fish, if you do me a trifling
favor," said the owner who had chanced to overhear the
remark. "What is that?" asked the other. "Only tend this
line till I come back; I wish to do an errand." The pro-
posal wa, gladly accepted. The old man was gone for
quite sonmr time. Meantime the fish snapped greedily at
the baited" hook, and the youth lost all his depression in
the excitement of ,pulling them in. When the owner re-
turned, the substitute fisherman had caught a large
number. Counting out as many as had been placed in the
basket since his absence, the wise old gentleman presented
them to the young man saying, "I fulfill my promise to
you from the very fish you yourself have caught. I hope I
have taught you the lesson that whenever you see others
getting something which you desire, you must not waste
time in foolish wishing, but cast a line in for yourself!"
The right attitude toward work multiplies the achieve-
ment. Truthfully now, are you a "clock watcher" or do you
have an enthusiastic "mind to work"? HENRY G. BOSCH
The man who wants a garden fair
Small or very big,
With flowers growing here or there,
H* Must bend his back and dig.
The things are few on earth
That wishes can attain;
We've got to work to gain! --Advance

achievement AMBITION!"
