SHOWDOWN,
FATEFU CSA ETHING
AT a Civil Service Asaoi ation mooting,
Goodwill Parish Hall, 'Tprsday night,
CSA members decided to continue their
walk-out until the Radio Dominica issue
was settled satisfactoily. The CSA
demanded of Govornmentthat Daniel
Caudoeron be formally charged', so that
he might present his oao to the Pub-
lic Service Commission4 Theo CSA roasser-
ted that it had tried 'vory -hard to have
the matter settled amicably, and blamed
Government for the osealktion in indue-'.
trial action taken thns far.
The mood of the meeting was one of
doeianbe in the,face of 'Mr.. Loblanc's
order to the Civil Sorva;ts to go. back
to work by 8 a.m. on Friday (today), and
throats from certain Hon4s of Depart-.
monts of legal action;.impmbors wore askei
to refrain from doing'a.hthing which may
be interpreted the Police as acts of
provocation.
The sutcossful meeting ended with mome
bors joining.onthusiast*cally in the
singing of "TIhe Dominica Workers Song"

MR. LBBLANC made three radio speeooches ..
addition to his lengthy dialogue with
a CSA. delegation which was long kept wait-
ing, ie also spoke with DAIC members at
his Morno home. In the third speech, on
'fateful F'iday', prefaced by Oh what a
friend we have in Josus, the Promier kept
up a Defender of the Faith and of Democ-
racy stand. Earlier he had said "Order is
Hoeven's first law". In his latest oration
he said wro ask young Dominicans who have
not been granted the luxury of employment
to stand by us. In speech I, he harked back
to 16th Dec.1971, warning not to expect
such leniency now."Nrce may be met with
force" and so on; trying to paint $he
protoators against injuatico avitolent
sinister revolutionarios, which in- our
view they are not.- And as this is being

A ." U E. R ~L E AC .T, IO N . John Spector
Having passed by Radio Dominica on Saturday morning and seen Police
posted at the doors, having heard rumours of Ministerial displeasure at
trends away from Labour Party 'guidelines', having realized the almost
gross popularity of the programmer-disc jockey among the yout, opf Dom-
in lca, I was not in. the least surprised when his summary transfer to
that simmering cauldron of discontent, the Clifton Dupigny Technical
College, caused an immediate explosion
Nor, I am sure, were the Government in the-least surprised, least
of all Leblanc. As a pe t,t y empire builder, he re c ognised n. Daniel
Caudeiron of Radio Dominica another who displayed the charisma which
can lead to a position of power -- a position of power which (in the
arsenal'of the paranoid) must be challenged immediately. The: storm
was bound to break, and Leblanc doubtless hoped to ride over .the storm
and over all forms of Opposition6 Carefully planning, the 'master pol-
itician' (description courtesy the Educator) operated his newly elected
puppet Civil Service Commission (with its puppet Appeals: Board) to in-
form Daniel Caudeiron of his secondment at the last working hour on
Friday (his connection With Radio 590 was td cease as from that moment
Thus, he no doubt opined (I'm sure the Premier opines a lot), that
nothing could happen until Tuesday owing to the Whitsun holiday weekend.
So he went off to relax in Vleilip Case.
Unfortunately for him, Radio Dominica hida plans, schedules and under-
staffing to be coped with even over hbliday week-ends. And the CSA
was not sleeping either; and the trade unions pnd other associations
were very willing to take up cudgels against .what looked like a case of
shocking social injustice -- and ty worked.on the case over the week-,
end: and Radio Dominica staff walked out on Manager Jeff Charles on
Saturday morning, leaving him no option but to bhut down.
Investigation showed that Caudeiron was 'ngt subject to diSciplin-
ary action' and was going from a technical post of Programme Assistant
D22-15 ($5,100 $7,320 p.a.) to that of Senior Cle rkcD27-23 ($5,,780,-
*#4,800). Thus his salary on Friday was at 45,700 p.a. (two increments)
but could not, on.. the following Tuesday, be more than the top Estimates
figape of. 44,800,;Mr. Lebla can J rad t1he ..f*ts for himself in Estimate a
I would say myself, at this stage, that Daniel was placed, as are all
radio personalities, in a position of incre a.sing potential .ower. On
the top of this he was overloaded running specialist panel programmes
for youth, newscaster and disc jockey. Vast opportunities for both overt
and covert promulgation of views good or bad -- which?, is a matter
of opinion among ,adult minds. This talented man, who has tried several
professions tentatively, had at last found his metier. He lives broad-
castiag, sleeps:. it breathes it. Unfortunately (as!!Leblanc was told
before 0590 started) commercial broadcasting has many hazards. Personal- -
izatipn.of the p-performers is one that is extremely. necessary to spread
the listening figures --the larger the-public, the greater the.advertis-
ing revenue. Soundly, in a weak economy like ours, advertising needs
some control or the import of.hard currency goods by middle and upper
income groups videoe the large number of cars crowding our little rough
roads!) upsets the:balance of payments. As I repeated ad mauseam before
Radio Dominica opened, the policy of a broadcasting system should be con-
trolled on certain,broad lines (laid down by debate in an intelligent
educated Parliament) by a Statutory Body such as the British Broadcasting
Corporation; and that Statutory Body should be non-political and sten
to be non-political in its overall assembly of members. Such Board of
Control would have insisted on more anonymity (scripts written by one
person to be delivered by another), Disc Jockeys given rules reducing
the amount of egoism punched out. These factors, plus balancing the
musical ego of the "jazz acene"'with an English-speaking voice more
appealing to the public than a heavily accented .foreign one 'voicing'
"Classical Choice" (Dr. Muller should certainly criL.t this programme.
which, edited for Caribbean ears, could then be delivered by a part- *
.'time knowledgeable Dominican volunteer.) (=QOiluidd in 'sa eQg.n),

FATHER FELIX REPLIES TO "EDUCATOR"
Refuting statements in that news-
aper of Jupe 6, 1973, Rev. Fr.Felix
Principal of St. Mary's Academy)
wrote to its editor on June 153. We
print extracts designed to "clear
up the misundenstanding and ill-
feeling which the deliberate mis-
statements of your columnist" (Cecil
Amos)' "has engendered".
"Firstly1' states Fr. Felix -"I
wish to refute quite categorically
ever 'having given Government the
assurance that under my administra-
tion Sorhaidqido- would not appear on
political platform.' In the very
nature of things this is simply not
feasible and I could therefore.give
no such assurance. What I in fact
undertook to do (in the wider inr-
terests of the school as a whole )
was to counsel/advise the gentleman
in question to refrain from active
participation in politics.
"Secondly, when, Sorhaindo appean-
ed on a Freedom Party platform in'
Lagoon on two (2) occasions., I gave
no assurance to the Minister of Ed-
ucation 'that this won't occur again.'
How could I? I did however admon-
ish Sorhaindo that as a schoolmaster.
his involvement in politics was to
be deprecated and that this kind of
behaviour could be. inimical to the
school.
"Your columnist, in a style that
is not uncharacteristic, has misrep-
resented- the facts and one can only
conclude that he has an interest of
his, own to serve.
"This type of 'journalism' is in-
deed deplorable and does no one any
good. For his :own sinister motives,
Amos clearly aims at undermining my
own authority by sowing seeds of
dissension'samongst my staff and by.
contriving to bring about >a direct:
confrontation between the school and
the Ministry of Education.
"The whole play is palpably ob-
vious and I wish to make. it. clear
here and now that I have no- grouse
with either Sorhaindo or the. Govern-
ment for that matter. This spurious
and unwarranted personal attack is
as unjustified as it is offensive.
"In the wider interests of educ-
ation, I would beseech Amos and
others of his kind that for -the
very same reasons that schoolmasters
should refrain from politics so too,
schools ought to be kept out of
politics. Yours faithfully,
(Sgd) Rev. Fr. K. FELIX. '


A PUERILT ACTION ... John Spector

manageable proportions.
Yes (to use the Premier's own dbs-
cription, I think Ilr.Loblanc took a- "

"but you chn't got round the Public ..

"Oh yes we can; we will just put bour

they did.
