Inquiry, DAWU being then involved,
Their front-page article in the

causing artificial shutdowns and.
scarcity, and querying the Water-
front &. Allied .,.:orlkers' attitude
in the matter particularly for
not informing itsa members that

NOVELISTS VIEW OF THI THIRD WORLD
"The'Third World is the all-pur-
pose journalists' tern for all those
nations neither in our sphere of in-
fJuence nor in the Communist sphere
of influence. Much of Africa, some of
Latin America, a little of Asia. The
-filler at the United Nations,"said K
"Poor ,couutries,most of them C.'
said, "Unimportant, generally." '
"I suppose you don't know this,"K.
said, but a few years ago there was
a meeting in California of one hun-
dred of the western world finest
brains, to discuss the probable fu-
ture, and their conclusion was that
the key to the future lay in the
Third World. They believed.that the
nations of the Third World would tmnd
more and more to military dictator-
ships, rule by colonel and general,
and that these 'military men would
have more in common with one another
than with any of their own people
or'anyone at all from the United
States or Russia. They suggested
that these military rulers would teid
more atd more to make short-term al-
liances with one another'
against both the
Western and Eastern blocs, forcing
them to become ever more militarily
oriented, until within a century l
there would be no nonmilitary gov-
ernment left anywhere dn Earth*"
'0A charming prospect," Gg said.
K: "The prophecy, or warning,what-
ever you.want to call' it, didn't get
that much play in the press. It's
easy to tell people they have to- wor.
ry about a big country like the So.v-
iet-Union, or China ,'but it's tough
.to -get the general public to taake
seriously the threat of Guatemala,
say, or Syria, or the-Congo."
"What it adds up to," C. said, "is
we're putting i:n burglar alarms,when
our real problem is termites."
"I've got the idea, G. said.
A SPYGLASS VIEW by '.HBinnoc
All of us- unemployed welcome the
good news about the French giving
Dominica a sports complex., I myself
limed around in Canefield area to
imagine how it would look. One thing,
the British gave $1m. for an H.Q.-
complex, but the lift which cost so
much money to put in never worked,
Hoping there's nothing that,will not
work in the sports-complex, such as
the grandstand seats or anything,
CHRISTIANITY & MARXISM -Readerb View
I have just read an essay by a
famous UK professor,Arnold Toynbee.
In short, one part deals with the
belief in life after death which is
a main point of difference between
*Marxists and Christians. Toynbee say
that since 1914 "Western civilisation
has been in manifest disarray",stress
ing the mismanagement of public af-
fairs. He says among other points tha
,this disorder is a consequence of the
distracting spiritual revolution. In
previous centuries, Western man had
believed in statements about the se-
quel to death prounced by the Chris.s
tian Church. Christian, Islamic and
.Jewish doctrines assure human beings
of immortality according to their *
spiritual potential. This gives huAmns
an innate sense of responsibility for
their earthly conduct, and helps them
.* resist temptations. Next, the belief
in immortality gives consolation to
the bereaved, who feel that parting
is only temporary. Nowadays, the
erosion of such belief causes people
to live in a spiritual vacuum. Many
no longer believe in the life everlas-
ting and live only for the" daymaking
their own rules. This, he says in a
much longer way, is what has caused
a'cri-sis in the Western World. -

In my humble opinion 'Knowledge

be more discreet by avoiding discus-

Children of such tender age should
not be compelled to know the hour

other lessons instead. It is left tD
