St.Lucia must be proud of its UWI
Extra Mural Department, for it hds
performed the valuable role of pub-
lishing the work of a young poet,
Robert Lee, third in its literary
series. And despite tiny misprints,
the production is beautiful. Our
own.Alwin. Bully designed the cover,
with fine and simple symbolism and
illu-strated sensitively certain poems.
iow as to -'the poems: they are real
poems, Westindian in breadth, uni-
versal in feeling, hard, unconven-
tional in shape-, and gleaming wjth
Black Pricde One day soon I dsall
take advantage of my reviewer's
right. ,o print one or two in this
little paper The Star. Fo' I am very
grateful to this gifted St.Lucian
Robert Lee for a presentation .opy
of -"Vocatin".. You can order your
own from IOUANALOA Publications,
U.W.I., the Morne, Castries or bet-
ter still 16ok for it in our own
local bookshops, which get a discount
on six copies. Lee is Head of the
English Dept of .St.Mary's .College,
Castries, and is a short story writer
as well as poet, theatrical critic
-and actor. A collection well worth
having. *
Eddie D'Pope of Dominica also did
mine the honour and pleasure of giving
me a copy of his poems, in a 55-page
book "Beyond Dark Clouds". These
verses are full of surprises. Some-
times the author makes a, little
entle fun of his readers and.some-
times he is extremely serious. You
can choose which of his several moods
you prefer- He coul a~gll have eli-
minated most of the/ponters at the
end of the poems, in my view; but
those serve to make the collection
different. Here again, I hope
Eddie will lJlow me to-gquote in due
course from some of these personalist
poeiis which are directed straight
at the reader like appointing finger.
We think you can buy your own copy
in Roseau if you are a verse-lover.

IS SUTC=ESS VJ -A. BAJD ) WORD 0? $ Ktelvin rarois
Successis by no means a bad word. However, it might be only a matter
of time before success becomes one of the meanest words in the English
dictionary, being more and more as~soaited as it is these days with coraupt-
ion, exploitation, victimization and foul play.
Let us not forget to give honour where it la de in case of men who
have striven hard, some of them at the expense of great sacrifices, to
reach where they have.
A certain American man who had received so many praises and congra-
tulations upon receiving one of ithae highest honours in .his field of work
expressed surprise at the outburst of lavish encominimms he receive, remark-
ing that few took into account the fact that he had spent the best days of
his youth studying laboriously towards the result he eventually obtained.
This is often the case; few notice the effort, all envy the success.,
Still we cannot deny. that success today is too commonly linked with
the barbaric attitude of men and women wanting to reach'certain -heights at
whatever expense their consciences, their bodies, their souls; men climb-
ing- upon the backs and necks of their colleagues, betraying their friends
and relatives to reach their. goals .
We hear of undesirables. forging certificates and degtaqe And ~tg
voting. papers:, but even worse is, the realization: of supposedly decent men
who are said to receive bribes, to bestow diplomas and boarding-out certifi-
cates. a d-degrees upon undeserving persabagps. There is also news of a
certain other category of men who pay certain institutions to fail candi-
dates they cannot manipulate, or caxidiates that are 'inclined to be too
progressive for-their liking:.radil.ng them over and over in an attempt to-
frustrate their efforts and oripple. their ambitions. No wonder there is a.
decline in principle, professional ethics and good relations all over
the world,
We- also have the famous; manufacturers continuously maximising profit
and oppressing the poor working consumers and retailers. They too are
successful men,
We can ask ourselves, what is success? Success -can only be seen in
.contraBt vi&failure. If every man performance rated above 50% we would
still find that the pass mark would be raised to something: like 70%, so
there would still be failures,. The reason being that although all men are
born equal and should be given equal opportunities they are not born with.
equal endowment and. equal ability. The less successful man may be more
hardworking than his successful* friend. It is in the light of this trth
that some men who have attained a, sta-ndard satisfactory to themselves
voluntarily donate a percentage of their income towards some form of charity
The observation of John Pezyton as, quoted by E.L.C,. of the Barbados
.Advocate is very caustic when taken in the context of the situation of the
lesser developed countries. For -how many of our successful men, even among
the wealthiest, did not arrive there through a scholarship'or fellowship
coming from a wealthier source?
This decent attempt by th@ Educator and other labour sources at the
degradation of the Roseau Central Cabdidate (M.S.Charles) for the past
election is' a perfect example of what could be "Success now i; a bad
Those-responsible for bestowing success on candidates should have been
more sober, careful and selective lest by the turn of this century success
becomes associated with bandits, :rapists and OPPORTUNISTS of one kind o0i
"It is not the success that counts but the effort. Not the victory
but how the battle was lost or won*" "Quality" will always be.the det-j-
min1rj factorthe gauge which will register whether they are "men or mice."
A QUOTATION: Man is born free; and everywhere he is in chains* O.e
thinks himself themaster of 'others, and still remains a greater
slave than they. Jean Jac~oes Rousseau1 '~JQ ial.Xlk3rI.as"*.
