"L E S T WE FO0 R G E T" a Candid Comment by ...W S. STEVENS
Elxctly fifty-five yeats ago at the 11th hour on the Llth day of
the 11th month (November) 1918, the Armistice was signed by the then
Allies France, Great Britain, Belgium, Russia, Italy, |a an, the
United States of America, China etc., and the then Centrq (enemy)Powers
--Germany, Austria, Hungary, Turkey and Bulgaria.
I was a schoolboy at Marigot when on that occasion I heard an address
bythe Methodist Minister, Re v. Edgar Calvert, on "LEST W% FORGET".
Two points were made: 1, the Victors must never squeeze the conquered.
Victors should be honourable concilliatory and merciful. 2, the Allies
must not forget.
The survivors of World War I were generous, but they forgot... and
World War II broke upon the world in 19359. It goes without saying that
nations and individuals need never pretend that all is w01l. The price of
freedom is eternal watchfulness. Rights and privileges cpn be maintained
only by cherishing them always, Taking them for granted ip dangerous.
There are political leaders who spend a good deal of their time stud-
ying just how people take their most precious possessions, and scheming
out how, for their own most selfish ambitions, the politicians might de-
prive those whom they lead of the things vital to life ar4 happiness.
Recently Dominicans have seen their rights and privileges seriously
erQded although these are embedded in a written constition not ten years
Perhaps our e d-oational system has not been emphasizsTRg sufficiently
the supreme importance to our citizens of our freedoms, rights and privi-
leges. Somewhere and sometime we Dominicans have slept and forgotten.
Then we suddenly .awoke to find that instead of building'~grselves into
a nation, the very foundations upon which we should build,'iave been so-
shattered and undermined that it is now very difficult for us to rise
and Cbuild. There is, however, still something in the best of us (despite
,shaken faith and despondent hearts) to cause us to rise an build a new
Dominica upon the present ruins.
A week ago at the National Day Rally at the BotanicaT gardens there
were a lot of empty chairs and seats. Even the children wee not quite
sure what they were celebrating.
The Civil Service Association ally and procession through Roseau,
supported by Unions inside and outside Dominica as well a by citizens
convinced the population that our little growing nation is seriously ill.
Premier LeBlanc made a National Day address that set every man and
woman in Dominica thinking. The tone of his, speech was pathetic. The
Premier did not come through with his accustomed fire. He fiort of appealed
for an armistice, a truce. He had every right and reason tp do so.
Mr. LeBlanc had, all things considered, started well. 't some stage
he either lost his head or he may have -thought that the t^-me had come
for him to carry all before him --forgetting that it was- ,he people, we
Dominicans., who invested him with power not just to' rule oi govern but to
serve. Nobody is going to say that Mr. LeBlanc did noth ng. He did show
political promise supported by his old colleagues. No Government is .per-
fect. No Government can do everything or do it in a perfect way. After
all, Government concerns human beings whose characteristic is to err. But
apart from the contemptuous, .s. to the many suggestions, motions and res-
olutions by the Opposition and other other organizations qgloulated to
help make Dominica a better place, Dominicans have been confronted with a
series of'policies and laws which have antagonized even Mr. LeBlane's
staunchest supporters. n
Uo mention a few horrifying moves, backed by unconscionable laws, one
remembers the so-called "Seditious Act" from which an iron opposition
sprang; the Act to do away with the Roseau Town Council; (contd. pgge .)...

LEST WE PFGET...W.Stevens (fr.p.2)
The Grenada Declaration which by this
time would have had us all steeped
in Burnharp' s Obeahisms; the Bank Act
which in these hard days would make
it difficult or impossible for peo-
p1e to draw on their savings, and'
expose their accounts to snoopers;
the State of Emergency which damaged
the image of Dominicaun abroad with
its cruel putting two Civil Servants
under house arrest when no-one strude
a blow or broke a glass window;the
almost doubling of constituencies

Furthermore there is the heartless pol-
icy of preventing a-poor man from sell-

while the ails of Jericho are propped

And one must not forget the holding

Claudette Copla-LartiGue.*. contains some
usetfulJ fact which we may publish later.

Elma Napier, born and educated in
Scotland, has been one of the out-
standing personalities in Dominica
for over 40 years. She was the first
woman in the West Indies to be a mem-
ber of a Legislative Council, serving
for eight years as the elected member
for the North Eastern district and
four years as a Nominated member,fol-
lowing the retirement of her husband
,Lennox Napier.
Overseas Mrs. Niapier was better
known as a novelist. Under her mot-
her's name of Elizabeth Garner she
wrote two novels with Dominican set-
tings: "A Flying Fish Whispered"and
"Duet in Discord". Under her own name,
she wrote three more serious auto-
biographical books: "Youth is a Blun-
der", "Winter4n July"and "Nothing so
Blue" the two last on her life and
travels in Australia,Asiaa & the Paci-
fic. *.. During her years on the-Leg.,
Council she strove for formation of
Village Boards, improvement in primary
school education and was a leading
force in the struggle for the ce;n-
struction of Dominic a' Transinsular
Road linking the Northern District
to the South. In 1954 she represented
the Windward Is. at the Commonwealth
Parliamentary Asan.Conf. in Kenya.
After Mrs. iNapier's retirement from
the Council she continued her work for
the area,making private contributions
towards feeder roads and social ser-
vices especially in the village of
Calibishie near which she lived.
Elma Napier' was the daughter of Sir
William Gordon-Cumming of Gordonstoun,
Scotland. She leaves two daughters in
Dominica Mrs. D.Agar and Mrs. Pat
Honychurch and a son,Michael,in
England, as well as grandchildren and
This good citizen was noted not on-
ly for her intellect and wit but for
friendly loyalty and charity of heart.

PATRONESS OF MUSIC by .May hristian
All lovers and performers of music
may remember that Thursday coming,
S22.nd November, is their own- great day,
being the Yeast-day of St.Cecilia. Wa
learn from early history that this
pious lady of noble birth in Rome,
started from youth to play and s1g
sacred music. Does our public Jok
forwacd to recitals'from organ, piano,
guitar, drum, steelband, accordion,
triangle and ahac-chac? A.l have the
right to a festival on that. day or .
weekend,.. There are so maiy Chirch and
school-halls -- so many parks. 'I1e might
even use St.Gecilia's Day as a fund-
raising opportunity-for charity*
o. let ua; help spread the wonderful
art called MUSIC.

The Dominica Civil Service has urged
Government by exchange of correspondence
that the remaining weeks of 1973 be used
in negotiating a.detailed grade by grade
review of salaries in the public ser-
vice with a-view to its implementation
in early 1974.

Football. The Dominica team lies at the
po f 6the'Bopham Tournament table with
two home wins against Grenada (4-2) and
St. Lucia (1-0). For the first time,
evory team will meet twice in one home
and one away match with neutral (other
island) referees. On Wednesday 7th the,
State Team convincingly defeated Grenada
who netted first early in the second
half~. renewed efforts by our boys saw
goals come in quick succession to lead
4-1. Grenadats second goal was the last
in the match and for them some aonsola-
tion. Goal scores for Dominica:.
Io Benoit (2) and W.Dontfraid. *Sundayls
pouring rain prevented the players of
oth the St.Lucia and Dominica teams
giving their best in the mud. The game
ho- er was a tough one with St.Lucia
(1 ,S) enjoying the better of the ex-
c^ .3es, for the greater part of the'
ma. a. Our boys. however were always
keen, and looking for the opening, and
when Herminus Emmanuel about five min-
utes before the end found the nets with
a. beautifully placed right-footer, it
w.s' for us the match.
'Our triumph so far we owe mainly to
the skilful forwards, Emmanuel, Dowhurst,
.-unoit and Dontfraid who are always all
,vex the place., and yet always around

-LULTXGS, COn Sunday 1ovenber 4th the
1aEon"'1 Sports Council staged a .fairly
successful Athletic Meet at the Windsor
Park where a large crowd turned out to
see rather average performances. The DGS
not unsurprisingly dominated the Meet.
The school's possession of its own
grounds and the keen, very highly organ-
ized Annual Inter-house Athletio meet
accounts for this. At the Meet,'DGS's
J.C.Lawrence, a natural athletic, was
the champion senior athlete ama A.Shil-

oOr 30. modals, including 13 golds. Gir3s

Everybody in the Bahasam today knows Robert Vesco. The
whole world knows about him.
In this column recently I wrote an article bout what had
aBedly happened to the overmment and certain business
dements in Costa Rica after he moved a lare chunk of money
htro that state.
Now he is in Nassau where it is reported. be controls a large
bamking and business empire.
Like in Costa Rica, Mr. Vesco is inea to government. Mr.
rhadini hinsdf has admitted that Mr. Veaco helped to finance
de PL?'s last election campaign and I am told that he put. a
mountain of money into the recent independence celebrations in
the Bahamas.
When questioned by the foreign press on the Vesco
contributions to his election fund, Mr. Pindling took the attitude
that this was not anybody's business.
It is dear that the Bahamas government and others in Nassau
welcome Mr. Vesco to the Bahamas.
Now. one of his alleged enterprises is reaching out to the
people. The Commonweakh Bank has advertised in the press that
it is giving beach parties at night for all comers.
In addition the bank has sent out invitations to certain people
in the island asking them to come out and help them to entertain
thea people.
The common people!
And so art effort is now being made to put a price tag on
everything in the Bahamas and, in the process, the Bahamian
people will lose a character that had attracted "quality" people
the world over to our shores in former years.
My prayer today is that God may preserve what is left of the
charactr pf the Bahamian people. EE E

spokesman for Robert Vesco,
accused of "looting" a mutual
fund, Friday pledged
"partnership" with the
Bahamuin government, Vesco's
metue so far from U.S.
Canadian financier Norman
Leslnc promised an infusion
of capital in the newly
independent island nation that
he said relies "upon investment
from abroad."
In return LeBlanc said,
Vesco's expanding finawvial
empire in the Bahamas sougHt
ccntinmtion of the Bahamas'
liberal tax and banking laws
wad the vital work permits for
foCrign specialists.
LeBlanc's 19-minute speech
before a Nassau Rotary club
was described as the.. first
public address by a Vesco
spokesman since the New
Jersey expatriate established a
flasncial base here
