By ETIENNE DUPUCH
(This is the third article in a series I am writing on the
all-important question: What is Enough? Where lies wealth?
Where is happiness to be found? They tell about life with my
mother and are a continuation of three stories I wrote on this
subject last September.)
I don't have before me the stories I wrote about my mother in
September but I remember saying that life for me up to the night
of her death was like that of a bird flitting from limb to limb of a
tree in warm sunshine and singing praises to the beauty of all
I also said it was as though a light had been turned off in my
heart that night. Other lights had come into my life ... some of
them equal ... but none of them the same.
My mother had everything that made happiness for herself and
anyone who came into contact with her.
She had the ability to communicate and radiate love to her
surroundings ... art ... music ... and a silent and unswerving
devotion to the needs of her husband and children.
She seemed to have everything ... at least all the things I prize
most in my storehouse of memories.
I'm sure there were times when my father and mother had
misunderstandings but I cannot remember any occasion on which
either raised a voice in anger.
Just once I remember what seemed to be a sudden flare-up at
our dinner table. My father and mother were talking quietly when
suddenly my mother grabbed a loaf of bread and threw it at his
head. My father dodged. My mother hung her head in remorse.
My father went to her side and took her in his arms. She cried on
his shoulder. I had no idea of what this was all about but it was a
beautiful scene, reminding us that, never matter how
well-adjusted a person might appear to be, there is always a bit of
temper lurking in the background that might easily be triggered.
The important thing is that man and wife should never allow
anger to be more than a momentary flash ... to be controlled and
buried again as soon as it ap ears.,
Am I my brother's keeper?
This is a question raised in the Bible.
My mother certainly felt that she was a sister or mother to all
When anyone in the neighbourhood was sick, she would help in
the nursing. There were no trained nurses in the island in those
days. She had soothing hands. She could rub ... or should I say
caress? ... a pain away.
If an animal was sick .. she cared for it.
Plants knew and loved her. Anything grew for her. People are
said to have "green fingers". It is now being demonstrated that
there is communication between plant life and human beings. It is
now claimed that plants grow well and they seem happy for some
people because they know the people who genuinely love them.
Now you may understand what I meant when I wrote that a
light had gone out in my life the night my mother died.
My father could not live in the house after that and so we
move to the big house on Bay Street that had been built by my
great-grandfather. It was then owned by Sir Walter Moore. My
father rented it from him.
There we had no garden ... no art ... no music ... my father
never sang again after my mother died. .. and there were no more
nightly gatherings of story-telling friends. My mother seemed to
have been the magnet that drew people to our house.
During the early years of The Tribune the children in our
family didn't have time to go to school. We all had to work in the
office to keep The ;ibune alive-
Before she got married my mother had been a Board of
1Education school teacher at the Victoria School on East Bay
S street which until recently was used as the offices of the Ministry
She conducted a school at night for us. But she also tootk in ...
free of charge ... all the boys in The RI~bune office as well as any
boys in the neighbourhood who wanted to attend her classes.
My father always said that the boys and girls on his staff were
like his own family. We have tried to keep this relationship alive
with our staff.
In the offlee we were all treated alike ... no favouritism for his
;;own children. And so, they all accepted discipline when they Rot
Iout of line and he laid the strap on their bottoms.
When anything went really wrong among the young people in
the office he would tell my brother Gilbert to fetch the stool and
the strap. We knew what that meant. We were all going to get it.
Always his own children headed the line.
As each of us camne up in the line he said three words: "Turn it
up". That meant lay across the stool and turn your bottom up to
There was never any resentment at these sessions because he
t~was like a father to his boys ... they loved and respected him.
This is the false idea about child rearing today. I am satisfied
That a child respects and loves a parent who administers just

Sthe generation gap today is nothing more than a breakdown of
I have told you that my mother was the essence of kindness.
Ilut she was also a no-nonsense person who didn't hesitate to
Administer the strap whenever it was considered necessary. I was a
rambunctious boy ... I got it every day, sometimes several thpes a
day. I needed it and it was good for me. This is the only kind of
language some children understand.
My mother regarded the boys at The Tribune as her special
care. Every Saturday she walked from our house on Shirley Street
to the office in Frederick Street with a large basket over her arm
filled with Johnnywcake, hot homemade bread, coconut cnrams
and chocolate fudge for the boys.
On my father's birthday and on The Tribune s birthday she
always gave a big picnic for the staff. On one occasion she
chartered a vessel ... made my father shut down The 'Iibune for a $6
week ... and she took the family and staff on a visit to Governor's th;
It was on this trip that my father met the girl who years later T
was to become his second wife. It was then that she met my
mother for the first time.
We spent a day at her parents' house and when we sailed that 5
night my mother brought this young girl and a sister to Nassau
for a vacation. The girl was struck down with typhoid fever and
almost died. My mother nursed her back to health.
My father never saw these people again until after my mother's
death. They heard how distressed he was and so they asked him
to come to Governor's Harbour for a vacation. This girl provided
just the thing my father needed at that time ... a quality of
gentleness that was soothing. He was old enough to be her father
and up to the time of her death she always spoke of him as
The relationship between this young girl and my father was
resistance and treated him with the respect due to a father.
It's an extraordinary thing but years earlier, when this girl was
'wearing pig-tails in a classroom at the public school at Governor's
Harbour, my father visited the settlement and addressed the
school. Afterwards he singled out this little girl for a moment of
special attention. At the time he didn't know this family.
was uns evraence of a natural attinity?'
I don't know what it might have been but I can say that both
my father's marriages were made in heaven.
But to get back to my mother.
As I told you, she regarded all the boys at The Ribune as her
Back in those days there were only a couple of doctors in the
island. There was only one doctor at the hospital and no trained
nurses ... only midwives and practical nurses.
And so most people learned the use of bush medicines. My
mother knew a great deal about these medicines.
She had a medicine for each season of the year. At one season
she claimed the blood needed cooling. At another it needed
warming. At another a good clean-out was necessary. There was

When the time came to "physic" us she would make her usual

Most of the time everything went easily. Even bitter senna was
taken without much resistance. It was the castor oil at which all
of us balked. This oil was the best thing ever for cleaning out the

Today castor oil is so doctored that you hardly taste it. But
back in those days the drug stores carried a very limited range
of medicines. This meant people had to make their own
medicines from bushes that grew wild in the backyard.

The castor oil tree used to grow wild in Nassau at that time.

people made for themselves in "the good old days" ... it is now
easier to go Into a shop and buy a product that was manufactured
thousands of miles away. This is as true of furniture and clothing
as it is of the humble caster oil bean.
I described this period in my life...when almost everyone in the
island was poor ...as "the good old days". They were good days

according to Miss Onderdonk.
Mr. Doty has been responsible
for the decoration of previous
Humane Society balls. Those
who have attended in past
years will know what
spectacular decor they can
expect on March 10.
The Halcyon Balmoral chefs
have spend a great deal of time
and imagination on the menu
for the ball. Guests will enjoy
smoked Scottish salmon, beef
Wellingtdn, a very special hotel
salad, and a surprise dessert.
The Crystal Ball is the
culmination of the Humane
Society's busiest season which
started on February I with the
beginning of the street raffle.
Tickets are on sale all over New
Providence and the first prize is
the small, economical car, the
Datsun. Datsun offers more
than just transportation. It's
licensing and insurance costs
are way, way down in these
days when such items are way'
wThe raffle will be drawn on
Monday, March 5, at the C'at
and Fiddle and it will be
broadcast over ZNS at 9:30
p.m. Tickets will be on sale
during the evening at the Cat
and Fiddle right up to drawing
at the ball," she said. "We are
going to have surprise favours
for every man and woman at
their table places. Every year,
we do this sort of thing and I
have a lot of other things up
my sleeve for the guests."
One of the surprises will be
the personality who will
provide the music during the
Drawing cards for the ball
are the door prizes and the
room raffle in which only
those attending the ball can

\GENERAL TENDENCIES: The decisions you
made mn joint conversations with others can
now be put in effect, at least so far as your part of any such
arrangements are involved. Become more active and show that
you have the capacity to produce fine results.
ARIES (Mar. 21 to Apr. 19) Take time in the morning to go
over your important paprsn, accounts, taxes and see to it that
all is well. You can have a delightful time with mate tonight by
attending a civic affair.
TAURUS (Apr. 20 to May 20) See what changes should be
made in contracts you have made with others, and be willing
to compromise. Forget that resntment you feel toward
another. Avoid a troublesome situation.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 21) If you pay an associate a
compliment, you can get fine cooperation for all that work
that faces you. Use a new system for best results. Forget the
social this evening and get a good rest.
MOON CHILDREN (June 22 to July 21) A find day for
recreation and conviviality, but be sure you are with
congenials and avoid arguments. Don't forget to take a good
friend along with you. Help one in distress.
LEO (July 22 to Aug. 21) If you keep promises you have
made to kin, this can prove to be a most enjoyable day for
you. Take steps to eliminate whatever is causing friction in the
home. Show loyalty to mate.
VIRGO (Aug. 22 to Sept. 22) There are routine affairs that
need to be handled in a clever way for best results. You are
capable of analyzing things very well now and can easily
impress others. Relax tonight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Forget all that jumping around
socially and pay more attention to important financial affairs
that need handling right now. Find a new outlet that can add
to income. Show your true ability.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 Nov. 21) Use that magnetism being
generated by the planets so that you gain your finest personal
aims. It is wise to attend group affairs. Bigwigs can now be
most helpful to your interests.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Arrange a meeting
with advisers in the morning and get the ideas you need.
Forget anything of a lighter vein. The evening is particularly
fine for the romantic side of life.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Look to a dynamic
friend for the support you need to have greater success and
happiness in the future. You can benefit by joining a group
affair. Handle correspondence wisely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Get the backing you need
from an outsider and align yourself with higher-ups for a new
project that appeals to you. A civic matter can be extremely
helpful. Show that you have expertise.
PISCES (Feb. 20 to Mar. 20) Before you start on a new
project, be sure you study every factor concerning it carefully.
Make yourself easily available to others. Taking a trip will
make everything easier for you.
IF YOUR CHILD IS BORN TODAY .. .he or she will be
one of those young people with great determination and
willpower that can be felt early in life. Be sure to provide for a
good education along right lines so that this life will be a
successful and meaningful one. Anything in the field of
investigative work and laboratory research is fine here. Give
spiritual training at an early age.
