The anchor was landed near the old Treasury
at the end of the nineteenth century and put up
for sale along with a number of pieces of iron
machinery. It was bought by an Antiguan, who
asked his brother-inulaw, a leading Dominican
merchant, to get it shipped to Antigua tor him,
This caused a number of problems and though
it was eventually dragged towards the old Bel's
Jetty it never got further than the Post Office.
There it has remained until earlier this week.
The Town Council reported ,that it had not
been informed of its removal; The son of that
Dominican merchant, who is responsible for the
anchor, also knew nothing:o f its whereabouts
this week. He was disappointed, for he was hop

RETROSPECT AND PROSPECT DOMII ICA 1974-1975 by W.S. Stevens
The festivities of Christmas, the shouting and the tumAlts are over.
Tennyson the poet sang: "The year is going, let hint go".
1974 was declared Agricultural Year and the Premier has already declared
1975 as Economic Recovery Year. Most people. would have preferred to hear
what Agricultural Year has produced, seeing that Agriculture and our Economy
are inseparably bound together the former being the foundation upon which
the latter is based.
There was no dearth of greetings, best wishes, and expressions of better
times, love, unity, peace and cooperation among us all this Christmas.
So far, so good! But how many people. are prepared to work towards these
wishes and hopes for a better Dominica? If the Dominica Government itself
had worked assiduously for peace and prosperity With sincerity anid devotion,
would 1974 have been such a tragic,"dread" year with violence, crime and
There is no necessity to recall the troubles and conflicts which over
shadowed Dominica in 1974. It was worse than previous years in this decade,
and we desperately hope that 1975 will be a year of peace, blessing and'pros-
perity. But I say again a new Government and renewed people must work whole-
heart.1ily and sincerely towards the goal.
Recently the Dominica Government in a Caribbean Caricom agreement threw
away a glorious opportunity to have a big industry here. It. agreed for
L. Rose & Co. to buy Dominica's grapefruit dog-cheap 2.80 per lb. and then.
expert the finest grapefruit juice to be further processed in the U.K., while
our ure~-loyment problem increases, daily with its; attendant evils. What is
alcs strange is that the grapefruit magnates in their Citrus Association is
happy to sell the grapefruit at 2.80 per lb. to L. Rose & Co., while they are
also happy to sell the same Dominica grapefruit to local hucksters and poor
Dominican undernourished children for 505-10 each.. The three C's Conscience,
Church and Christianity obviously don't count in business.
Then the Banana Grower is in a terrible position. He has been played
out by past Chairmen of the D.B.G.A. and the day of reckoning has now.come.
Government, D.B.G.A. and the Managing Committee have at last felt-that there
is much to be ashamed of in the biggest industry in Dominica.
The Citrus-Grower, particularly the small-one has not yet received a
penny for fruit shipped on the Geest boats over three months ago. Those who
depend on bananas and shipping grapefruits to the. U.K. on the Geest boats must
now be thinking hard.
If:a general election is in the offing, Dominicans must go all out for
a brave new Government that will place the people above the wealthy firms
who have had it too good for too long, while hard-working Dominicans take
The Economic Recovery Year that Premier John announces: so glibly has not
started on the right foot, Markets for all we produce in a world of food-
shortage must be attracted here despite the bad image we have created recently.
Tourists have been scared, and the folks in the CAIC concern must be working
overtime to find out how td clear 'the industrial and commercial fog which
hangs over us.
Premier John has taken away Police from Minister of Home Affairs John'
Royer. Is the.Premier saying that the Minister of Home Affairs is cancelled
out altogether? Surely, the part can never be greater than the whole. The
Police Force had already'been undermined by an ex-Premier.
Education is in a very bad way despite countless window-dressings' Edu-
cation 1n Roseau speaks for itself. Infants. are confined to a school in
front of a big garage and in the worst slum area in Roseau. The plan'for
Education in Roseau was (i) Remove infants to the site of the Clinic and
Roseau Girls School; (ii) Clinic to go to the Pound with improvements where
necessary; (iii) old pupils in a new building on Bath Estate. Instead wve
have a school on the old D.G.S. site heavy with traffic, commerce and business;
infants still in the Pound, and yet the Minister of Education is happy about
the situation. ( conc-luded on pam.e 7)

CALL ME MASSA by
(A Plantation Story from Nevis)
Many years ago, on Dasent's Old
Manor Estate in Nevis, there lived a
slave whom everyone knew as Brother
John but whom everyone called Bo' John
Bo' John was blessed with a splen-
did physique, an attractive personal-
ity and a reasonable level of intelli-
All through his boyhood Bo' John
was loved and admired by his> fellow
Leaves and always displayed the ability
of a leader.
Bo' John did not enjoy slavery and
though he did his work well he never
made any secret of how he loathed his
condition. His fellow slaves used to
listen to him and were encouraged by
the bad things he said about the
Massa and the plantationn system. They
were inspired by the hope which he en-
visioned of the day when the Plantation
would break up and the slaves could be
free to live as dignified human beings.
When the Plantation authorities ob-
served that Bo' John might be getting
restive, the first idea of the Over-
seer was to sell him to another plant-
ation to prevent him from causing
trouble among his fellow slaves on Old
Manor, But the shrewd attorney who
thought that he knew some thing of the
working of the mind of this jagro had
the different idea that he should make
Bo'John an overlooker of the field
When his fellow slaves heard the
news that on Monday Bo' John was to be
their immediate supervisor,they were
glad because they loved him and expect-
ed that at least under him their treat-
ment would be more humane.
Jimbo was Bo' John's best friend,
They used to talk a lot of things. They
even thought once of a plan to stir
rebellion among the slaves. So Jimbo
was happy at Bo' John's promotion be-
cause he expected great things to re-
sult from it.
When the slaves came out to work on
Monday morning they found how wrong
they were. There was Bo' John standing
full height, his arm folded with a
great show of authority and aloofness.
iNext to him was at man with a whip. As
each slave came to the field and said
the usual "Mornin' Bo' John" he was
given four stripes:, with the Whip-
man's warning to "Say Massa nex' time".
When Jimbo came to work he met Bo'
John .with a broad grin and the vcual
CALL ME MAS1SA (cncld.) "Good morning
But Bo' John did not return his
grin as usual; he beckoned the Whip-
man "Gef him four."
SThunderstruck, Jimbo cried, "Laud
Bo' John, what I do?"
"Gef him four more" was the unsmiling
The unbelieving Jimbo pleaded,
"Laud Bo' John, have mercy".
"Gef it to him" but before the
Whip-man could throw, his blows, Jimbo
was struck by an inspiration; he cried
with deep feeling "Laud Massa."
That did the trick. Jimbo saw Bo'
John's eyes light up with pleasure at
the sound of the word "Massa".
"Lef him alone now" he instructed
When the attorney heard this a.o
count of Bo' John's first day of work
as overlooker, he clapped his handS,
threw back his head and laughed with--
out control. For some time to come,
his Plantation would enjoy peace under
the iron hand of Bo' Johmo
