GUEST EDITOIUAL
H HISTORY RECORDS THAT SLAVERY
Swas abolished in 1824 Yet one wonders
whether the chains have been re.
moved. Fear and suspicion envelop# and
becidouds the atmosphere ofD'Omfiiica dividing
society into two distinct. strata- those who
dare to weather' the storm and ride atop the
cloud in quest of the air of freedom, and
those who because of their weakness and other'
failings continue to stifle their conscience un-
der this -cloud of doubt and mistrust.
In this latter group are thv now p)roverbbal
'sapplings and creeping things' who dare not
lift a finger in support of a brother fallen
from grace for fear of incurring 'the wrath of
the Boss;, those who turn their headed rather
than greet a relative, an old associate or a
schoolmate whom they suspect, of being in the
offer camp; those who rejoice for a brother
dIeprived of his means of livelihood, as his
:.m- is their immediate gain.,

But little wonder! Most of them 'hold
office at the Boss' pleasure. Allegiance and
not efficiency is their mainstay; thus they
continue to fawn ana flatter for fear of falling
out of. favourwith fortune...
Fie! Ambition should be made of sterner
stuff. Why cringe and crawl when the rights
to life, liberty. and the pursuit of happine",
are enshrined in the Constitution of Ihis Dei-
mocratic State? Aiding and abetting anyone
in the, derogation of these rights is unpar-
donable.

Know then thy rights! Live up to your
obligations! But 'hjoy your privileges, for
though discrimination ..pervades every stratum.
of this society, the dark clouds will one day
break, revealing a silver lining 'ltoo dazzling
for those whose eyes have been too long ac- I
customer to darkness. Awake therefore, and
-see the light!

QUALITY OF PERSOiiS by John Spector
Sir Hugh Springer, Secretary-General .of the Association of Common-.2
wealth Univesities, during his recent address at the graduation ceremony
at Cave Hill Campus pointed out that in a democratic society the quality
of governments reflected the quality of the people who elected them and
who had to bear the ultimate responsibility for what they (the government)
did for or to them. In effect he is merely paraphrasing the old adage
"A people gets the government it deserves". This is a really terrible
reflection on the people of Dominica! What sort of impression do
intelligent persons in other lands have of Dominica, when to all intents
and purposes there: are only two people among the elected members of the
House of Assembly (under the Shoe Emblem) who can conceivably represent
Dominica elsewhere without acting, talking anq looking like' dim, dumb fools,
However, Sir Hugh (a former Registrar of U.W.I.) had more to say than
that, and I trust he will-excuse me if I spread his gospel a little
'further than to a small group of graduates. He said that "excellence must
be our watchword; so that we ourselves will be welcomed and respected and
what we offer will be in demand." So, what can we offer? For a start
the sweetest, best-favoured grapefruit, in the world (which ripens earlier
than any other grapefruit) and a government that for years has strenuous-
ly played politics to hamper the Citrus Growers Association efforts to
get tho,r fruit washed, gassed and packed to catch the high-price early
U.K. market. Next we have (if only they were properly promoted) first
class coffee, top-quality vanilla, top-quality bay-oil. Lastly we have
many top-quality people: but the odd thing is that a lot of these people
,are just very ordinary people (not rich people, nor gwos bougs, nor minis-
ters of state) but the man and woman in the street. Despite a bit of
ignorant "honlkey go home" nonsense among a few younger dispirited
Dominicans, the average person is. very natural and friendly without being
subservient to strangers: -that is, of course, tourists. By and large
this means that Dominicans have a fine' quality mind, mostly far finer than
that of a few mediocre tourists. Add Dominican citizens to the so far
unspoilt beauty of Dominica nard We have a quality for the discerning,
,visitor that is unequalled anywhere in the world.

Afe~ting to our poor, quality government, I came across a really-
cheap bit of deceit quite by chance when looking through the S.R.Osi for
1972 (S.R.O. stands for Statutory Rules ana.Orders, which are a convenient
way of altering ordinances involving money without debate in Parliamentt
they are signed by the Governor on the advice of the cabinet). This
S.R.O. is No. 21 of 1972 cited as the "Limes Export Levy (Revocation)
Order, 1972" and states "all sums standing to the credit of the special
account .... of the Limes Export Levy Ordinance shall be paid into the
Consolidated Fund".. I was curious, especially when I found that the page
no. (1165) cited in the Revised Laws of Dominica was incorrect (it should
be "1665").
The, history that I was ablo to dig out was that in $940 an export
levy could be -placed on limes and lime products (Cap.271) by an S.R.0.
This was done in 1942 but sums collected between May 7, 1942 and October 5,
1942 were for some reason refunded to the exporters. Th.s S.R.O, was
suspended in 1949, and an amendment in 1956 disposed of the proceeds of
the levy by placing them in a "special account" from which 'the Adminis-
trator in Council may from time to time direct towards the formation and
other expenses of the West Indies Limes Association, or towards the
expenses of the Dominica Limes Association. The amount, which had been
frozen since 1949,was 414,508.74. Not perhaps a lot, not enough to build
a Minister's house in Roget or Canefiold, (or oven Vieille Case) but still
a useful sum for some good cause. I have three comments to make on this
(1) if the money had been put in a deposit account in a commercial bank
for some 23 years at 2%,'the sum would have been doubled-to $29,000 (2)
No person or firm who had originally contributed was informed or con--
suited before sinking, it into the bottomless well of the Consolidated Fund
(3) the S.R.0, was sneoked through with incorrect reference and a minimum of ox-
planation. By and largo, it was not the act' of a Government of Quality.

DEBATE: LOWER THAN EVER fr.p.l
reported by C.W. and D.B.A.
The keen. listeners in the House c
Monday 19th dwindled on" Tusday when
the debate became .increasingly boring
Following the Premier ts'half-hboir spec
and Miss Charles t reply, I-tr, Armour
tried to lay blame for the condition
of the banana industry on IIurricano
Dorothy (1970) and "an attempt at sab.
otage" -which nettled 1r. Stevons in.
to reprisals, the ding-dong causingstu
audience reaction that the Speaker hai
to call a halt, fl-Uiss Charles was
charged with reading her speech and s]
riposted that Ministor Etionno had dai
the same thing last session, so it mit
be in order. On. the question of l1-yr,
olds voting the Premier said they wer,
entitled to vote now but enumeration
would have to be done first. Parlia'
monetary procedure in Dominica was muc]
criticised; and IMr..Stoveni was lam-'
basted by nearly all Govt. Ministers,
with rude remarks about his ago. When
he spoke of the poor state' 6f the Mi1i
istry of Education e: Health, called
the Budget "a miserable effort" and
said (looking at the Promi6r) that
"Work should begin at the top", he go,
paaoed, but persisted ii raising point
which required replioe Vit. from John
Etionnea nd Leslie on farmers and
rOad equipment (only available for
foedor roads free); Stevens said the
reception of the Farmers Union Dole"-
gation was an insult*. Mi. Fadollo's
brief remarks oontaincd. this one ;'tho
Marketing Board has more members than
money ; he also mentioned tho emascu-
lation of R,T,C. and -. taxes and lic.
oncos, and the need for an. .operative'
woodwork section in Grand Bay School,
Britain having financed'this. Mr.Los-
li thought his function was to re-
fresh memories of the past. D3% part
of the archives had beoh lost.. He was
annioyed that the Opposition continuea:
ly criticised the Police and describe
the building:of now police stations ai
replacements statingig that some youth
had volunteered for fire service duty
and that equipment would have to be
housed in police stations where no fi:
stations existed. *.14r. Etionne said
there had been a lot' b trouble -

MOMENT OF INSPIRATION
Read: Psalm 34:11-19
A BROKEN HEART
The fAm)l is nigh unto them that are of a broken
heart . . Psalm 34:18
4 HAVE in my possession a clipping given to me by a
precious servant of God who ministers each week to
a congregation of those who cannot speak or hear. He
himself is similarly afflicted and so communicates to. his
flock through "sign language." The article he gave me is
yellowed with age and no doubt has been a real source
of strength to him. In an effort to spread his ministry of
comfort, we pass it on to you:
"What broke your heart? Unkindness? Desertion? Un-
faithfulness on the part of those you trusted? or did you
attempt to do something beyond your power, and in the
effort the heart-strings snapped? A bird with a broken
wing, a woman with a broken heart. a man with a broken
purpose in his life -. these seem to drop out of the main
current of life into the shadows. They go apart to suffer
and droop: The busy rush of life goes on without them.
But God draws nigh. The great Lover of man alwa:,
comes closer when lights burn low and dim in the house
of life. Where do we see love perfected? Not between the
father and his stalwart son who counts himself independ-
ent, or between the mother and the daughter in whom love
is awakening in its first faint flush; but where the crip-
pled rhild of eleven years, frail and wan, lies in the little
bed, unable to help herself. There the noblest fruits of
love ripen and yield refreshment. The father draws nigh
to the little sufferer as soon as he gets home at night, and
the mother is near all the time to sympathize and comfort
and minister. Such biokenness attracts God! It is dark;
you think yourself deserted; but it is not so. God is there.
lie is nigh; call on Him. A whisper will bring a response
especially if it is a sigh from a broken heart."
HENRY C. BOSCH
There. little one, don't cry;
They have broken your heart, I know;
And the rainbow gleams of your youthful dreams
.r.re things of long ago.
But Hearvn holds all for which you sina-s
There, little one, don't cry. -Anoo.

Resident Rmiantic (fr.R.4).- digging

the rest of his life in a. hopeless
battle with the earth.
Last year; in the back room of a
Loubiore rumshop' I listened to an old
man in a felt hat: and faded white jacket
as he told me about those caves. lHe
used. to work for .Ramago and still lives
on the estate. F6r"years he had been:
filling up the fira# cave with wood and
rubbish and some time ago was able to
plant some -bhanna, over the spot. He
woke. up one morning however to find the.
fullgrown plants had. aunk into the earth.
But the deepest hola is still thoreo
fringed with ferns-and luxuriant under-
growth lico' a gaping memorial to that
fascinating eccentric. L. -i.
