T H E Q U A L I T Y 0 F L I F E .... JOHNi SPECTOR..'
The publication of Governor Hickel's article on Conserv4tion ,ast
week was most timely in that it coincided with the formation o, the
Dominica Conservation Society (which presumably takes over where the
Waikitibouli Group leaves, off). One .o~the more important functions of
the Society could well be the, enlightenment of the public and especially
the 'higher echelons' of the civil service as to exactly what a National
Park means in the philosophical terms, in economics, in. it value to the
inhabitants of a country, and to nature.
Since the National Park idea came firstly from America; I cite the
American conception "an area of exceptional beauty and inspiring :
scenery". . "designated sometimes; for the conservation of features or
exhibits of scientific, historic, Or prehistoric irmortance". The
original Act passed by President Grant 101 years ago "provided foai the
preservation, from injury or spoliation, of all timber, mineral deposits,
natural curiosities or wonders within said park-and their retention in
their natural condition" and also prohibited the "fwa nton destruction of
the fish and game found within said park, ,nd against their capture or
destruction for the purposes of merchandise or profit" (now hunting and
fishing are completely banned in National Parksa).
Most of the U.S. National Parks are a lot bigger than the whole -of
Dominica, some even ten times the size, but Dominica' has its .own uniqueness as
a tropical island with luoh tropical verdure and mountains rearing their h ads,
through the rain-belt; undisturbed for the most part, forming an isolated 'nd;
complete 'ecosystem' in which the "balance of nature" is undisturbed,; Fcotogy,
or the study of the-ihter-rolating of the living environment (plants, an jiLis1,
fish, insects, weather, rivers, Geology --the whole Creation) is a comp actively
now discipline. It is, however, becoming increasingly important as man
discovers what an unholy-moss he has made of largo'portions of this plant .
His activities are responsible for deserts, floods, the extinction of many
living things, from Diablbtin Gulls. to whales, great auka to dodos. Hi' mqssaivo
rosovoirs are causing earthquakes, and now. Central American republics have
formally protested against the "seeding" bf Caribbean hurricanes which has boon
(they say) the cause of tile prolonged droughts of the past fow years in: th6se
countries I .
It is- now accepted that if man o'6ntinuos to pollute his environment w4th
lethal'gase from exhausts and factory chimneys, poibonous'offluents in the
rivers, cumulatiKe poisons in the soils from woeedicides and insecticides, and
unconbrollod procreation ho will exterminate himself and probably all 1,fo in
the world leaving a legacy of concrete monoliths, plastic containers and
rusting brokon machinok.'
Luckily for. Dominica, only one half of her 190,000 acres. have been used
missed about with by techniol6gical mania the Other half being 'uneconomic' aid
unprofitable because too weti too high, too troublesome -- except, of course,
for its gomm~er trees and its punice. These havo'boon seized on by the: Govern-
nont as sources 6f odploynmnt and revenue raisers. Asn far as the latto is
concerned the reader only-'has to look at the pitiful results in the budget
estimates for the. last few years ; some 30 or 40 Dominicans have had (for a.
while) staoedy jobs from Dohinioa Mining and Doncan Timbers. On the other side
Dominica has lost thoiiunds of cubic yards of land between the hospital and: the
Stock Farm, and has received a slashing blow in the high rain-forest of D'leau
Gommier,.where "selective felling" of .timber wad o6o Idifficult' and, clear-
cutting was the order of the day. Anyway, a firm which thinks it can transfer
one whole technical operation ftrM, a sub-artic climate to t. marine tropical
climate (as did Dom6on) without proper study by intelligent and qualified
engineers deserves what it i-ould have got (bankruptcy) if Government had. hot hold
it up in the hopes of getting the revenue due from it, Timber does not..seasonI
quicker because the temperature is 85deg.F. instead of 15dog. because &5dog. in
Dominica. means a, relative humidity of over 60% most of the tine. It took them
three years to discovor' -this elementary fact, and then -too late they built a
nmall kiln drier. The old obsolete head-saw and planer, banned by law in Canada
for use on a public. electricity service, should never have been introduced here
(to cause such frequency and voltage fluctuations as to moss up every bit of
electronic equipment on the island and wear out the voltage regulator/governor
. --~... E S. turbo and diesel generators). (Concluded on _.. )

.Short Story G R I M A WAK ENING Cynthia Watt
G*rampie was scared....scared. bad. Something had awoken him in the
middle of the night. He could see the time by the light of the.
illuminated clock which Marona had sent him from St.Croix. The cold
sweat trickled down his black, bare back. This was frightening. His
crimpy hair stood on end. The heat was stifling these days and he slept
with only an old trousers on...yet in spite 6f the heat he was cold, cold,
cold.. What was 'wrong? What could have awoken him?
He shook his head and stared into the pitch darkness of the room.
Oh yes, now he remembered. He had seen Boboy standing near the bed with
blood. streaming down his shoulders, and dripping onto the floor...blob...
blob. .blob,..
Then Boboy had turned around and there, at the base of his neck, was
a gaping hole., oozing blood!
Grampie stared harder still in the darkness. There was no Boboy there
now...maybe it was just a bad dream. Maybe the red beans he had eaten
for supper had given him acute indigestion, though he felt no discomfort
except this strange fear. He lay back on the trash mattress, calling
himself a stupid, fool, when suddenly, he was sitting bolt upright. There
was Boboy again '
"Boboy." he called out loudly, bata there was- no reply, and to his
astonishment, Boboy was no longer to be seen.
"S sa ye', 'non?" he muttered, groping under the old sacking that
served him as a pillow, and having found it, he lit the bouzaille resting
dn the rough, wooden, home-made table near his bed.. No one was in the
one-room shack.- He got up, scratching his head.
"Sa dawoll, !' he said, and picked up the clock, looking at the time
again. "Yone e I He sat down on the bed., thinking, thinking.
It was three weeks: since Boboy had left their village of Gomipr to
se'ke work in the more progressive village of Bamboo, and he had not
returned home even for a weekend. Grampie knew that the boy was a born
trouble maker...
"Is bettah. I go to Banfbooo an fine out how tings is. I feel it have
trouble wid Boboy," aind going over to the corner near his bed took his
be stclothes off a nail. Hea slipped into a pail of faded blue jeans,
pulled a brilliant multi-coloured shirt over his head., and pushed his
feet into a pair of brown tennis shoes.. Putting a leaf of bread and a raw,
red herring into a paper bag, he started .odf on his way. He arrived at
Bamboo just as dawn was breaking, and turning into a narrow street,
knocked at the door of one of the houses, which was opened after a while
by a sleepy-eyed woman, and soon he was telling the household of his
mystifying experience. He had just finished his last word, when a com-
motion was heard outside.
"Bondie6 Janjan.. allyou...woyoyoee Janjan...o-o-oh-ee-ee,...
Opening the door, they saw- a crowd coming up to the house with a few
of them wailing and wringing their hands, and in the midst Boboy, with
blood streaming down his shoulders.
"...an he have a beo-eeg hole in his neck," someone said. "Bettah
get de doktah quee-eekl"
Grampie screeched., "Jus Iaik ah see heemi Jus lak ah jell allyou
Sondie', Moddah t Poltece' Poleecel Alyou call de poleece." And
rushing from the door he went pell-mell to the police station where he
.made a report.
"But," sai4 the policeman, "you don't even know what happen. How
can you come an'make a report?
Grampie raised his head higher. "Well, you come queek an see foh
yohself. We sen foh de doktah."
Just then, one of those who had witnessed the incident, came in and
made his report. "Boboy is my good fren and we was togedder when it
happen, private; is dat Zingay boy I suttin dat do it. He always troub-
ling Boboy."
Later that evening after the doctor and the police had gone, Grampie
said to Boboy: Yoh speereet come an show me wat happen to you las night.
Yoh doan tink is bes you come back to Gomier?!I Bamboo doan agree wid you.
Only tree week since yoh dere an look at wat happen to yo3.

At Portsmouth a most unique Confirm-
ation Service took place at the Catholic
Church last week-eid, with well-nigh 130
candidates presented*
What was mpst outstanding was the great'
part the candidates played in the Mass,
which was officiated by His Lordship the
Bishop himself, A welcome address; was
delivered by a candidate, the Epistle was
also read by one, and something unique --
four girls and four boys walked in process-
ion to the Altar, each carrying a symbol
of one's career in life ... a book, a play
ball, a bat, a'cutlass, a flower, money,
a loaf and a receptacle of wine ... whilst
the meaning of each symbol was being des-
cribed by a young teacher. This was very
impressive, and the Church was filled to
capacity.
Our correspondent adds: "I enjoyed
DOM-CAi. TIMBERS verses immensely. And, in
regard to the murder of Eric Rawle, what
.another sad death! Portsmouth, like Roseau,
cannot help being affected by it."

Dear Editor
Our Housinaate Scandal
We have been listening ove*
Radio, Dominica and hearing of
the "Watergate Scandal". in
the United States of America.
I am now asking through this
medium that a similar treat-
ment over Radio Dominica
would be greatly appreciated
by the .Taxpayers of Dominica -
this time on the DOMINICA
HOUSINGATE SCANDAL..
Angry Taxpayer,
Virgin Lane.
THIS WEEK'S QUITE :
(from Walter J. Hickel, who
wrote the splendid extracts
on Conservation printed in
the STAR last week). Mr.Hickel
was U.S.Sec/State for the
Interior up to 1969.
"There are very few purely
private decisions any more.
Increasingly, every private
decision related to our
society must also be con-
sidered a public decision,
one that cannot be under-
taken without regard for its
effect upon other individ-
uals. Continued indifference
to the public today can only
burden more severely the
public of tomorrow."

LETTER OM TECHlMICAL COLLEGEE
An anonymous letter severely
criticising this College can-
not be published because the
writer did not give his name
in confiddeca. It appears to
be the work of an educated-
person pretending to be il-
literate. Please clarify.PSA.
