Vehicle scam





suspects flee


By" Chamanilall Naipaul
COMMISSIONER General
of the Guyana Revenue Au-
thority (GRA) Kurshid
Sattaur says most of those
fingered in the re-migrants
vehiclee scam have fled the
country and have been black-
listed. while some of the ve-
hicles have been seized.
He explained that most of
the persons involved in the
keam were not actually granted
duty-free concessions to bring in
vehicles, but they could be
charged for issuing a false docu-
ment %, which they obtained from
the Mnin. tr :.I Foreign Affairs.
Sauaur reported that since
(he unearthiric of the scam in

rangements and weaknesses"

concessions granted for
vehicles.
However, the Commis-
sioner General said another
worrisome problem has devel-
oped with an influx of vehicles
entering Guyana illegally from
Suriname and to a lesser extent
from Cayenne.
This problem has
increased with the advent of
the Guyana/Suriname ferry
service, he observed, adding
that one of the deceptive
methods being used is
replacing Surinamese licence
plates with local licences.
However, he said the police
have been doing a commendable
job in tracking down the illegal
vehicles.
Several public officers, in-
cluding Secretary to the Trea-
sury Nirmal Rekha, are still on
leave pending investigations into
the scam.
A two-pronged approach
to the probe into the racket was

terms and conditions for
granting duty free conces-
sions are clearly spelt out in
the laws of the country.
Prior to the Fiscal Amend-
ment Act of 2003, duty-free
concessions to re-migrants were
granted by the Ministry of Fi-
nance in accordance with Section

Consumpiion Ta.. Act, Chapter

Lnder the nie Act which
came into being in Septem-
ber 2003, the GRA is tasked
with the granting of duty-free
letters.
The Ministry of Finance is
now responsible for issuing an
advisory letter to the GRA stat-
ing that the applicant for duty-
free concession is qualified.
In addition, the ministry
issues six original advisory
letters signed by the Secretary
to the Treasury, one each of
which is sent to the
Commissioner General of the
GRA, the Auditor General, and
the Licence Revenue
-Department.
One is retained by the
ministry for its records.

there %as discrimination in the design of the Day Care

strucuon of the Day Care Centre that was done under the Poor

Mr Nedd ;aid the resident claimed that a similar Da. Care

GUYANA Oil Company ser-
vice stations will have a full
supply of fuel by tomorrow,
with the arrival of a new ship-
ment according to head of the
Guyana Energy Agency Jo-
seph O'Lall.
Most GUYOIL service sta-
tions have been forced to cease
operations after increased de-
mand for cheaper fuel caused
supplies to run out, the Govern-
ment Information Agency
(GINA) said yesterday.
The company has been
providing a cheaper alternative
for consumers, selling at the
lowest possible price (about
$100 a gallon below prices at
other companies.)
Yesterday, drivers continued
to queue up at the Kitty gas sta-
tion in Georgetown, the only
GUYOIL outlet that was sell-
ing fuel.
Since Friday the GUYOIL
service stations at Sheriff Street,
Georgetown, Victoria, East
Coast Demerara, and Provi-
dence, East Bank Demerara
were without fuel.
Many drivers were forced to
turn back from those stations as
attendants erected 'no entry'
barriers when the fuel ran out.
This was a repeat of the
shortage earlier this month
when the state-owned company
had to close its services stations
after fuel stocks ran out.
Meanwhile. Minister of
-Tourism. Indusut1 and Com-
mnerce Manzoor Nadir is urging
Gu-i\nece to begui to conserve
on fuel because of continually
rising luel prices on the'world
nmatket
'I du not see world fuel
prices corning back down for
the next six months," the min-
ister told GINA.
He added that Guyanese
must face the reality of high fuel
prices and adjust their lifestyles
and means of production to
minimise on fuel consumption.
The minister noted that

over the past 36 months, fuel
prices have moved from $480 to
almost $640 a gallon.
The Government of Guyana
reduced the consumption tax on
gasoline by 20 per cent after the
recent world fuel price hike.
Trawler owners have been
calling on the government to
similarly reduce the tax on die-
sel.
However, Nadir said that
the C-tax on diesel is only 20
per cent and the only alterna-
tive would be to remove the tax.
On the issue of fare in-
creases by mini-bus owners and
taxi drivers, he contended that
there is still no justification for
higher fares.
Crude oil futures rose Fri-
day, ending the biggest rally
week in three months, as trad-
ers worried about gasoline sup-
plies in the summer.
On the New York Mer-
cantile Exchange, oil futures
for June delivery rose 1.19
dollars to end at 55.39 dollars
a barrel. Meanwhile, on
London's International Pe-
troleum Exchange the June
Brent crude-oil futures con-
tract added 96 cents to settle at
54.97dollars per barrel, Xinhua
news agency reported.
Anumberof Aiiieric an larg-
est refineries reported shut-
downs after maintenance, This
development threatened to curb
gasoline supplies, the agency
said.
The U.S. gasoline inen.co-
ries had declined by 5.7 per cent
since the end of February, more
than double the five-year aver-
age, boosting deimind for crude
oil, Xinhua said.
"Gasoline demand is strong
and that's bullish for crude,"
said an American oil manager. ."I
have not yet seen people stop
driving here in the U.S. because
of higher prices."
A New York-based oil bro-
ker added that prices would
head for a record of 59 dollars a
barrel if the futures rose above
56.45 dollars a barrel. "If we
close above 56.45 dollars,
you're talking about new highs."
More analysts expected
the rally in oil prices will
continue this week.

GRANT CHEQUE: Tajwattie Balkisson of Annandale, East Coast Demerara, receives her cheque from head of the

More East Coast residents

get flood relief cheques


RESIDENTS of several
East Coast Demerara
villages yesterday received
their $10,000 flood relief
cheques from officials of
the Recovery Planning &
Implementation
Secretariat (RP&IS), the
Government Information
Agency (GINA) reported.
It said those receiving were
from Better Hope,
Beterverwagting, Bare Root,
Bachelor's Adventure, Ann's
Grove and Bee Hive.
Some said they will use the
money to buy household uten-
sils while others said they will


bank it, GINA reported.
Additionally, it said, some
residents plan to buy baby
chicks to restart their poultry
businesses damaged during the
January floods.
It noted that President
Bharrat Jagdeo had committed
to giving persons involved in ag-
riculture $10,000 each to help
them get back into businesses
following their losses in the
floods.
RP&IS head Robeson
Benn told the agency that
some persons are not pre-
senting proof of identifica-
tion and residence and this is


resulting in complications
relating to verification for the
flood relief grant.
He stressed that people
claiming benefits must produce
their national identification (ID)
cards or passports for identifi-
cation.
For proof of residence, per-
sons should present bills either
from Guyana Power & Light
(GPL) or the Guyana Tele=
phone and Telegraph Company
(GT&T). A rent receipt can also
be used, GINA said.
It said Mr Benn pointed
out that persons who were
unable to register claims for


damage or loss during the
floods are asked to register at
the centre at which the
cheques are being issued in
their respective
communities.
Persons are also required to
have proof of identity and resi-
dence when filling the required
information on a green form that
will be provided by officials of
the RP&IS and cheques will be
issued as soon as they are avail-
able, GINA said.
Benn told the agency that
more than 3,000 cheques
were sent to the villages yes-
terday.

'CRISIS IN BELIZE

I, T1 to be hoped that the Caribbean
Community Secretariat is monitoring
L' developments in Belize, a member state',
of the Community, whose constitutionally
elected government is under serious threat
;of destabilisation, according to credible
reports.
All advocates of human lights and democratic
governance should appreciate that. the turmoil in one
CARICOM state must be the concern of all family
members of the Community.
This is true of Haiti as it must now be for Belize
wheree the Prime Minister, Said Musa, in a nation-wide
broadcast on Thursday night catalogued incidents of
arson, sabotage of electricity and telecommunications
services and a range of illegal activities designed, he


claimed, to force his government out of office..
SAccording to reports out of the capital, Belmopan,
what started a week ago as an industrial relations
dispute over workers acquisition of shares in 'Belize
Telecommunications Li'ilted (BLT), has degenerated
into an open confrontation, with trade unions lining up-
behind the main opposition United Demqcratic Party '
(UDP) against the FIeople's United, Party (PUP)
administration. '
Whatever the true nature of the dispute, and the
levelof grievance of the BTL workers, it is simply not
right to learn of trade-union representatives openly
declaring thal they would' "foice.the Prime Minister
and his government to resign", rather than engage in
peacelLil dialogue. '
There nave been too many instances and reasons within
CARICOM why this kind of politics must be strongly opposed
- unless we are going to make a fai ce of electoral democracy
and endanger the rule of law.
Right now, Haiti continues to be mired in political
crisis that threatens the conduct of new and free and
fair elections.
The Organisation of American States IOAS) has
been'forced to send a fact-finding mission to Ecuador
in the wake of the political crisis that last week resulted

What is of relevance now is
the difference between the
reassuring statement of
Ambassador Bullen and the
actual disbursement of already
committed U.S. aid.
Friendly donor countries to
the Caribbean do have a right to
express their concerns/
disagreements with


governments of the region on
issues they feel impact on their
own relations.
But I maintain that there is
a qualitative difference in
expressing such concerns in a
sophisticated manner than
resorting to arrogant, "big
stick" politics without any
prior attempt at
engagement.
Stating his
government's disapproval
over "serious procedural
irregularities", Boucher
warned of "possible
reduction in the range of
assistance we provide the
government".
He may have
expediently forgotten the
row among U.S.
lawmakers and media
exposures that preceded
endorsement of President
Bush's choice of
Ambassador John Negroponte
to head America's vastly new
intelligence infrastructure in
view of his controversial past
of alleged involvement in gross
human rights violations,
including torture, while he
served as a diplomat in Latin
' A e'ich.' '' \. .


SIt bears emphasis to state
that within CARICOM Cabinet
ministers have long been
involved in influencing the
issuing of gun licencess and
intelligence gathering,
But this is not a-culture that
should be encouraged, .or
rationalised by small .states
claiming to be committed .to
democracy and good governance,
because the hands of the rich and
powerful are unclean while they
point accusing fingers at the poor
and weak.


However, last week
Ambassador Bullen did more
than speak optimistically of
sustained U.S. aid for Guyana's
social sector. He signalled
increased financial assistance for


Mr Roland Bullen


the tremendous challenge to
effectively battle the HIV/AIDS
pandemic.
In alluding to Boucher's hint
that the U.S. may have to review
its pledged aid of approximately
US$4 million to Guyana,
' especially as this relates to law


enforcement. Bullen hinted hh
on inessago for the Guyana
Government to ponder: i
As .reported in the
'Guyania Chronicle' of Friday.
April" 22, Bullen said that
they .(the U.S.) ha e
expressed their opinion (on!
the Gajraj affair) and it is up
to the government of Guyana
to decide how it would react,
since it has the power to
appoint ministers, and not the
diplomatic community.
A significant coincidence is
that a day after Bullen's
assessment of Guyana-U.S.
relations, Head of the
Georgetown-based European
Delegation of the European
Commission, Ambassador Per
Eklund, was disclosing an
allocation by the EU of some
13.4 million Euros for Guyana
to have a new digital weather
radar early warning station as
part of a larger EU-funded
programme for the Caribbean
region.
The EU had also earlier

"disappointment and
disquiet" as distinct from
any threat over aspects of
the Chang Commission's
report on alleged improper
conduct by Gairaj.
For its part Canada,
which like the U.S.A. had
hastily revoked prior to
the establishment of the
probe commission the
visas they had respectively
issued to Gajraj. had
already expressed its own
concerns over ministerial
"procedural irregularities"
but reaffirmed "it remains
committed to Guyana's
long-term development".
In the circumstances,
the next move may be for

HAITI VISITED BY PEACE


Ruben Sili6

WE HAVE all been awaiting
the end of the last Haitian
conflict, which began with
the departure of President
Aristide, compelled to
relinquish power by U.S.
forces that were accompanied
almost simultaneously by
other governments of the
Region, until a United


Nations force was created and
mandated to apply a
peacekeeping plan in the
neighboring Caribbean
nation.
It seems as though the fact
that the foreign forces did not
enter that country with prior
agreement among the major
actors involved in Haitian
politics, has led to a wave of
unceasing violence, constantly


changing its forms. That came
after seeking to implement
several plans to disarm the civil'
population and the former
members of the Duvalier army.
In addition, included in the
programme for political
normalisation was the holding of
elections to appoint a new
government to replace the
provisional one. This task began
with the appointment of the


electoral authorities, who
started their work immediately,
not only through the internal
organisation of the process, but
also by acquiring international
assistance to observe other
electoral processes, all with a
view to ensuring the smooth
running of that process.
However, the most
encouraging factor for this
impoverished country was the


promise of assistance received
from the international
community, which, together
with military intervention,
provided the capital necessary
for Haiti to begin the long-
awaited journey toward
development. Although,
economic aid has certainly been
the worse kept promise, since
the scarce resources received
have arrived little by little and
in quantities far below those
initially provided.
Being optimistic, as one
must be regarding the Haitian
situation, it would appear as
though something positive

PUSH


FOR


PROGRESS


I HAVE always taken the
firm view that those who
impede progress do not
have the welfare of this
nation at heart. Guyana is a
country emerging from a
difficult past characterized by
neglect and under-
development. Too much time
was lost. Many opportunities
squandered. Hence, one can
understand our people's
impatience about road,
drainage, electricity, health,
housing and other public goods
which were denied them for
decades. And the passionate
expression of their need is a
good sign: Guyanese have
stronger hope in the future.
Also, it demonstrates that
people are very serious about
attaining a better standard of
living.
And in response to this
caimouring for more
development, the Government
has been increasing its allocation
of resources annually, to fund the
required additional projects in
nearly all aspects and areas of
the country. Just examine the
constant increase in the size of
the National Budget. This may
have to continue for some time
to come in order for the country


to attain the desired level of
comfort.
The administration's acute
responsiveness is borne out in
the fact that it engages the public
directly through outreaches,
community meetings and the
pursuit of an open-door policy
by many ministries and state
agencies. Also, the recent
introduction of the regional
Accountability Framework will
ensure that local government
systems are more responsive as
they too are critical in pushing
ahead with progress at the village
level.
The President of Guyana,
Ministers and yes, ordinary
residents, have time and time
again commented unfavourably
about the functioning of certain
NDCs, Town Councils and
Regional Administrations. The
criticisms are more vocal when
it is found that these bodies
deliberately stall and frustrate
development. An example has
been the Region Four
administration which is
controlled by the main
opposition party. The recent
Greenfield koker fiasco is a stark
reminder of the neglect and mal-
administration by that entity
which is more interested in


playing politics than advancing
progress in the region. It must
be noted that the administration
of the Georgetown Town Council
is no different. On innumerable
occasions, Central Government
has had to intervene to rescue
residents from the neglect and
uncaring attitude of these
entities.
I wish to illustrate two
examples where there have been
attempts to deliberately frustrate
progress reaching various
communities.
The first concerns the
President's announcement
that Minister Collymore
would be embarking on city-
wide consultations with the
citizenry of Georgetown to
solicit their views on an
Interim Management
Committee. The ineptitude of
the current city
administration bothers every
citizen each passing day. The
President was net required to
consult and to be so
democratic. There are
provisions where this could
have been done by an Act of
Parliament as happened in
1994 or embark on an Inquiry
as happened recently with the
Rose Hall Town Council.

The main oppo',ition part)
instantly rejects anN form of
consultation with the tax payers
and embarks on an aggressive
campaign to misrepresent this
genuine attempt to arrest the
decline of Georgetown the once
famed Garden City. Handbills
were circulated and whole page
ads taken out by minions of the
main opposition party describing
the President as a 'dictator' and
seeking to control Georgetown
for political reasons. This ploy
is not amusing and would not
interfere with the consultations
due to start in days. But sadly
here we have an opposition
grouping which wants to prevent
people expressing their opinions
by politicising an issue such as
citizens' welfare.
The second is the sad
episode where gunmen in the
Buxton/Friendship communities
stopped drainage and road works
being carried out by the
Government. The administration
views very strongly the action
by gunmen to prevent this road
and drainage project from being
implemented in the Buxton/
Friendship community. The law
enforcement agency will no


doubt address this matter in a
firm way as it is its responsibility.
But what is even more
disappointing is the response of
the Leader of the Opposition
Robert Corbin to this outrageous
and criminal action. Instead of
condemning the gunmen for
chasing away the contractor and
slowing development in the
Buxton/Friendship community,
he seeks to blame the
Government for the gunmen's
action. The people of Buxton/
Friendship are entitled to their
fair share of progress and criminal
elements must not be allowed to
prevent development projects.
Mr. Corbin as the leader of a
major political party must
always ensure that he stands on
the side of national development
and law and order.
It is known that Mr.
Corbin's party exercises
political influence in that
community and if he is truly
concerned about the welfare
of its residents, then one
should expect that he would
volunteer support for the
smooth implementation of
this project. This is not the
time to score political points.


I














This project is particularly
important in the context of
the upcoming May/June rainy
season. Also, if the project
cannot be completed, then I
hope Mr. Corbin and others
would not scream
discrimination or neglect by
the Government.
No society is free from
politicking. Competition of
ideas is healthy and must be
encouraged. But when this
spills over into deliberate
frustration of the country's
progress and projects such
as the one halted in Buxton/
Friendship, we must all
speak out and take a clear
stance.

The South AmericanCommunity grows as OAS weakens


By Odeen Ishmael

THE current stalemate in the
election of a new Secretary
General of the OAS has
strengthened prospects for
the advancement of the
South American Community
of Nations (SACN). This
Community, in developing its


organisational strength at
the expense of a weakened
OAS, can clearly be seen as
a strategic "South" alliance
which is redrawing the geo-
political map and
counterbalancing the global
dominance of the United
States.
The OAS election has


ruptured the 34-member body
along what some political
observers regard as sharp
ideological lines. Even if one of
the two present candidates from
Mexico and Chile or as
currently speculated a new
candidate from somewhere else
- is eventually elected on May
2. the divisions will remain as

sharp as ever since the new
Secretary General will assume a
position with less political clout
and with even lower political
respect in many of the member
states of the hemispheric
organisation.
In this scenario, the SACN,
formally established in
December 2Q004, now has a
strong advantage of taking the
leadership role in the
'hemisphere. Although the
Community has only 12
members all members of the
OAS as well their economic
and demographic strength can
set the pace for enhanced
development and expanded
trade, and economic and
political cooperation with
Central America, the Caribbean
and North America. In this
respect the SACN, by driving
the economic and development
agenda in the hemisphere, can
even help to resurrect the
waning influence of the OAS.
The Community received a
boost of confidence on March
30 at the meeting between the
Presidents of Brazil, Colombia
and Venezuela and the Prime
Minister of Spain in the
"Venezuelan city of Puerto
Ordaz. Arising out of their
deliberations, the four leaders
agreed that the SACN would be
an important mechanism to
promote political coordination
and economic, social and
cultural integration while
promoting South American
interests into the-international
scene.
. Already there is active
movement in working out the
Community's organisational
mechanism through its first
formal meeting of Foreign
Ministers in Brasilia on April
18. This Ministerial developed
ideas for an organisational
structure and discussed themes
for the first Heads of State
meeting to be also hosted by
Brazil four months from now.
Much has already been
stated about the Community's
trade and economic strength. It
;occupies an area of 17 million
square kiloinetres and has more

than 361 million inhabitants. In
terms of its economic clout, its
annual exports amount to over
180 billion dollars and its GDP
currently 'climbs to about 975
billion dollars.
But while these statistics
are impressive, there exist only
a few trade and economic
"giants" in Brazil, Chile,
Argentina and Venezuela. At the
same time, there are also
countries with wide disparities
in development, with Bolivia,
Guyana, and Suriname clinging
to the bottom of the ladder.
During the FTAA
negotiations, which have halted
indefinitely, the smaller
economies continuously asked
for special and differential
treatment to help move them
out from their depressed'
economic circumstances. It is
obvious that as the SACN
develops into a wider organised
economic entity, the smaller
economies in this Community
stand stronger chance to
obtain the assistance they have
been pleading for under the yet
unborn FTAA.
The two large economic
blocs in South America -
Mercosur and the Andean
Community are expected to
enhance their cooperation since
both bodies will be incorporated
in the overall organisational
structure of the SACN.
Significantly, some Andean
nations Peru, Venezuela and
Bolivia as well as Chile
already have associate status in
Mercosur, and Venezuela is
already thinking about
upgrading their status to full
membership. Guyana and
Suriname, rapidly expanding
trade links with Brazil, are also
considering accessing associate
status in the southern trading
bloc as well.
With the growing
cooperation between Mercosur
and the Andean Community,
there are signs that an
agreement between these two
sub-regional groupings can
materialise into a free trade area
for South America. Some
economic observers feel that


this process can come about
faster if the member countries
actively integrate their energy
infrastructure.
Currently, there is serious
thinking on this matter, and
Venezuela has been moving to
render some assistance. Its
leaders have constantly stated
that the struggle against the
poverty in South America and
elsewhere in the Western
hemisphere finds an ally in the
Venezuelan oil industry. Over
the past year, Venezuela has
signed energy agreements with
a few South American countries
and these are already being
touted as part of the energy
integration of the continent.
But other forms of:
continental integration are
already moving forward. In
2002, the South American
Presidents at a summit held in'
Ecuador, established the;
initiative for the Integration ofi
the Regional Infrastructure in:
South America (IISRA). This
body, now an integral part of.
the SACN, has already started.
to identify and implement
projects on the integration of
transport and other
communication networks in
South America.
Moves are also being made.
in the area of information
dissemination. In May,.
Televisora del Sur (Television of
the South), a Spanish-language
television news network
broadcasting information from
various South American
countries, will begin
transmission all over the
continent from its headquarters
in Caracas. This network,
jointly owned by Venezuela,,,
Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay,
will compete with CNN
Espafiol for the South American
television news audience.
In addition, initiatives are
being taken to expand
cooperation between the
continent and other extra-
regional political blocs. One of
these is the convening of a

Suriname concludes

mine-clearing operations,

with OAS support


-


"Copyrighted Material

Available from Commercial News Providers"


AFTER nearly three months
working on the ground, the
Organisation of American
States has now concluded its
mine-clearing operations in
Stolkersjiver, Suriname's
last known landmine-affected
area.
The operations, which be-
gan in the area last February and
ran non-stop through late April,
included destroying the deadly
explosive devices.
The OAS said the defining
project covered an area of more
than 1,565 square meters, and
involved a team of Honduran
minesweepers working under a
Brazilian supervisor. They
trained and supervised a group
of local soldiers to rid the area
of the dangerous devices.
Along with Costa Rica
(2002) and Honduras (2004),
Suriname will become the
hemisphere's third country to
declare "land mine-free" status,
thanks to assistance from the
OAS' Comprehensive Mine Ac-
tion Programme (AICMA).
The OAS said this also
marks the second time it has


provided assistance to
Suriname in this field. The
first was in the early 1990s,
involving peace accords that
included mine-clearing op-
erations coordinated by the
OAS.
Landmines unearthed in
Suriname were remnants of the
country's civil war of the
1980s. The U.S. and Canadian
governments also provided as-
sistance for Suriname's de-min-
ing programme.
AICMA has been engaged
in this field for 13 years and has
assisted Central and South
American countries in removing
and destroying the explosive


devices.
The programme receives
funding support from 16 donor
countries, the OAS said.
Suriname is a signatory to
the Ottawa Convention, the in-
ternational landmine treaty of-
ficially known as the 1997 Con-
vention on the Prohibition of
the Use, Stockpiling, Produc-
tion and Transfer or Anti-Per-
sonnel Mines and on Their De-
struction.
The OAS said that
Suriname in February last
year destroyed its last re-
maining 146 landmines that
had been stockpiled at the
Bos Bivak military base.

16 SUNDAY CHRONICLE April


SCR


By Mark Ramotar

THERE'S a rush on for scrap
metals and the heaps that
have long dulled roadsides
and scrap yards here are fast
disappearing as packed con-
tainers head to feed hungry
mills in China and India.
It's cheaper to melt than
smelt that's what they say -
- and buying and selling scrap
metal/iron is believed to be a be-
hind-the-scenes, big bucks, quick
bucks business venture.
Dealers here say they are
scrambling to fill 20 and 40-foot
containers with scrap iron/metal
to be shipped to India and China
where they are recycled into
steel to supply the virtually in-
satiable demand for the massive
building boom in those coun-
tries.
It is understood that there is
a ferocious and competitive bid-
ding process among the dealers
who are paying between
G$10,000 and G$15,000 a tonne
for scrap metal.


And in the wake of the di-
sastrous January floods and the
need to get rid of garbage that
had blocked drains, people are
paying others to remove all the
derelict vehicles and iron and


metal debris they had long ig-
nored in their yards and on road-
sides
The Chronicle last week
caught up with the virtual CEOs
(Chief Executive Officers) of the
scrap metal business in Guyana
- Englishmen Kenneth Short and
his son, Martin who own and
operate South Carib Metals to
find out what is the lure driving
the business.
In their scrap yard at a
Georgetown wharf Thursday af-
ternoon, amid the large stockpile
of rusting metal of all sizes and
shapes, were the fuselages of
two DC3 aircraft formerly
owned by the now defunct
Guyana Airways Corporation.
Kenneth said the fuselage
will be cut into several pieces,
packed into a containers) and
shipped to England.
He was at the time giving di-
rections to workers who were
busily packing another container,
while a constant stream of
trucks and horse-drawn carts
loaded with scrap metal was


flowing into the scrap yard.
The workload was so heavy
at that peak hour that he asked
the Chronicle to reschedule the
interview.
At his Ogle, East Coast


BLE FOR SCR


Demerara home yesterday after-
noon, his son Martin recalled
that his dad decided to settle in
Guyana in 1982, a number of
years after he first arrived here
in the late 1960s trying to sell
agricultural equipment and ma-
chinery.
Martin said his father used
to bring in the agricultural equip-
ment and machinery and he even-
tually began exporting the scrap
metal.
However, it soon became
a mostly one-way street with
exports of scrap metal far
greater than the import of ag-
ricultural machinery and
equipment.
In its 20 years of existence,
Martin said South Carib Metals
Inc has exported between 30,000
to 40,000 tonnes of scrap metal
from Guyana in about 30 con-
tainers monthly.
He feels the company
should get an award for helping
to 'clean up Guyana', referring
to the removal of scrap metal/
iron that probably would have


still been littering the country
had it not been for the establish-
ment of South Carib Metals.
"We're trying to clean up
Guyana. It's a shi..y job but
somebody's got to do it," he

for scrap metal in Guyana: Englishman, Kenneth Short (left) an


posited.
Martin apparently, or con-
veniently, forgot to mention the
word 'lucrative'.
He said his company
bought about 300 tonnes of
scrap metal for last week
alone. These come from as far
as Corentyne in Berbice and
Supenaam in Essequibo, he
said.
He, however, said that the
cost of trucking the scrap metal/
iron to the city from these far-
flung areas has become virtually
prohibitive.
Noting that the buying and
selling of scrap metal is hard
work, Martin said one of the big-
gest challenges now is finding
containers to stockpile the stuff
for export.
Another is the dwindling
availability of scrap metal in
Guyana. He noted that although
scrap metal is in abundance in
Guyana, it is fast becoming a
scarce 'item'.
He believes that with the
rate of accumulation and export
of scrap metal out of this coun-
try, this scarcity should begin as
early as next year.
"Actually, it is one of the
major exports out of Guyana and
follows closely on the heels of


sugar," Martin asserted with a
wry smile.
And alluding to the
wobbling prices for scrap metal
in the world market, he ex-
plained that the market is de-
pendent on the world's stock
market, where prices vary day
to day.
He also indicated that one of
the major shipping lines trans-
porting scrap metal around the
world has recently upped its
freight rate by almost 100%, cit-
ing damage to its ships while
transporting the heavy contain-
ers, among other issues.
The Englishman also dis-
missed threats from competi-
tion, noting that honesty and
fair play have been the hall-
mark of the operations con-
ducted by South Carib Metals
over the years.
Referring to the abandoned
ships and vessels in several of


Guyana's many rivers, Martin
said he and his father have al-
ready inspected these with a
view to cutting them up and
bringing them to the city and
then shipping them out.
He, however, indicated that
logistically, it is really not fea-
sible to do so without govern-
mental assistance.
Another large dealer who
operates in Georgetown com-
plained that although the scrap
business is attractive and lucra-
tive, he might leave the business
due to security reasons.
He said he is regularly tar-
geted by bandits.
The dealer indicated that
his 'scrap outlet', which has
been in operation for almost
two years, is shipping on av-
erage six to seven 20-foot con-
tainers of scrap metal/iron per
week to markets in Asia, es-
pecially India and China.

K T" knowing of his deep involvement with the
Church as a devout Catholic, we sought a
comment from former City Mayor and
businessman, Mr. Compton Young on the
recent passing of His Eminence, Pope John Paul II.
What we got instead was a riveting account of
how a string of strange coincidences would have
significant bearing on the lives of the internationally
renowned pontiff and a lesser-known but equally
important member of the Holy See, the telling of which
would serve as a poignant reminder of the tenuous
nature of life.


By Linda Rutherford

AS HE stood there, looking
down at the remains of a
young man he had come to
love like a brother, a wave of
emotions washed over him.


"Deep inside of me...I
felt....I really wanted to bawl...I1
never bawl for a long time ..."
The young man lying in the
coffin, dressed in all his ecclesi-
astical finery, was Father Floyd
Grace, a young man who gave up
a promising career in banking,
both here in his native Guyana
and the United States to which
he and his family emigrated some
years ago, to enter the priest-
hood. He was ordained on May
20, 2000.
The last time the two had
spoken, Young said, was on the
morning of Thursday March 10.
Ii t....-. a habit they indulged
i,, ice a week; on Tuesdays and
on Thursday. On this particu-
l:ir Thursday, Father Floyd, as
lie \-. as known to all and sundry,
had complained of feeling a pain
in his stomach. He would jok-
inrly dismiss it, however, say-
iri he suspected it might be just
'.ind, and the two had a good
laugh -ver it.
During the course of their
con' ersation, the subject of Fa-
ther Harold Wong's poor health
came up and Father Floyd prom-
sled that he would remember him
in his prayers since he was of-
fering a mass at 09:00h that
morning for the Pope.
Two days later, Young
would receive a call saying that
Father Floyd had collapsed in
the presbytery that afternoon
and was in hospital. Later that
evening he learnt that his condi-
tion had worsened and that he
was in intensive care. He died on
Monday, March 14, at the White
Plains Hospital in up-state New
York In another few months, on


unusual, since, from the little he
had learnt from talking to people
in the medical field, he should
hase shown some sign of being
diabeuc.
"But he never shared that
with me at all that he was a
diabetic. As a matter of fact. he
was ne\er sick either. I was sers
close to Father Floyd he grewt
up with me in the Catholic Char-
ismatic Renewal. We did practi-
cally everything together... we
went to Jerusalem .. He's even
my son's godfather "
Pope John Paul 11, mean-
while, would, as we all know.
rally out until Saturday April 2.
when he finally passed away al-
ter suffering a series of debilitat-
ing illnesses. What was uncanny,
however, was that the same Ed-
ward Cardinal Egan who offici-
ated at Father Floyd's funeral
service would, according to
Young, also officiate at the
Pope's.
It is a well-documented fact
that Cardinal Egan, who is Arch-
bishop of the archdiocese of
New York, was one of the 117
cardinals deemed eligible to elect
a successor to the late Pope
John Paul II.
Among qualities he was
looking for in the yet-to-be-
elected pontiff, he told reporters
upon arrival in Rome for the fu-
neral, was the same boundless
energy as did Pope John Paul II
and his mastery of languages.
"It would be a wonderful
thing," he said, "if he has a lot of
energy. It would be very fine if he
speaks a number of languages, un-
derstands a number of languages. It
would be well if he has done a cer-
tain amount of travelling. It would
be most important that he's a man
of prayer and that he focuses on the
congregations, the communities of
faith, the parishes and the dioceses."

IT IS FINE
But, to return to the saga of
Father Floyd's passing and the
utter sense of loss he felt at see-
ing his friend lying there, forever
silenced, Young, who was privi-
leged to have been granted a pri-
vate viewing, said:
"When the people drove me
to the funeral home, like my legs
couldn't move. I had not seen
him in a year. And I went into
the room... and there was Fa-
ther, lying down there; my
friend; my brother...my real
brother...and I felt... You try to
explain this to people and they
won't understand... but I know
it's the Holy Spirit saying to me:
'It is fine; it is fine.'
"And as I got closer to the
coffin, I felt there was a calm
coming over me...and Floyd ly-
ing down there... with his cha-
suble and his street
clothing... his glasses and his
shoes... and his stole... with his
rosary in his hands... and his
university ring...and I know that
,lie,'i "sa. Sain ItT,know thait!T


his four short years as a priest
was evident, Young said, judging
from the outpouring at his fu-
neral service.
Cardinal Egan, who had the
privilege of ordaining Father
Floyd, referred to him as a
'gentle priest', while Monsignor
Wallace A Harris, vicar of Cen-


trial Harlem. who did the hom-
ilI. unimmed up what he called
"his priesitl identity" in four
%..ords. namely Character' con-
,cience. -acrifice and fidelity
He uould later describe him
as "a man of high character who
alh. a.i ga\e of his time-: was un-
failingly faithful to his respon-
.ibilitie-. promises and friends;
and one of those pnests who are
constantly working and doing
things for other people "
Father Edwim H Cipot. who
was a classmate of Father Floyd's
while at St Joseph's Seminary in
Dunwoodie said that not only was
he a good friend but a good man as
well "He %was a good and gentle
man swho would take time with
anyone. He just didn't know how
to sa\ no.
the two had met under
rather unusual circumstances be-
fore either had thought of join-
ing the sentinary ..for the an-
nual Chrism Mass held at St
Patrick's Cathedral back in 1993.
As Father lames Jackson wrote
in hit obituary. both happened
to be standing together near the
altar of Our Lads of Guadalupe.
He quotes Father Cipot as
recalling that at the time of their
meeting, he %was an out-of-work
actor "schlepping around Man-
hattan looking for new roles",
and Father Floyd an up-an-com-
ing briefcase-toting businessman
who was into banking. Six
months later they would meet
again at the St John Neumann
Residence which is reserved for
men thinking of joining the
priesthood.
They were both ordained on
the same day by Cardinal Egan,
and have since been in the habit,
whenever they happen to meet
for Chrism Mass, of going off
by themselves to the corner
where they first met to offer a
prayer together and share a quiet
joke. Chrism mass is the tradi-


tional gathering every year of
priests and bishops to real'firr
the vows they made at the time
of ordmation.
The funeral service was held
on Fnda) March 18 at the Hol%
Name of Jesus Church. a pre-
dominantly While parish in up-
state New York where Father
Floyd served for nine months as
parochial vicar. A graduate of
Fordham University. he was
transferred there in May 2004
from St Frances de Chantal Par-
ish in the Bronx to which he w as
assigned as parochial vicar fol-
lowing his ordination.
The day before the funeral a
service, called the Mass of the Holy
Eucharist, was also held at "Holy
Name' in honour of Father Floyd,
with chief cdebrant being Bishop
William J McCormack, former di-
rector of the Society for the Propa-
gaion of the Faith.
Some 60-odd priests from all
across the US were said to hase
attended the funeral. According
to Young. the body lay in state
there at the church from March
17, which is also the Feast-day
of St Patrick, until it was buried
the following day.
Father Floyd was interred at
the Gate of Heaven Catholic
Cemetery in Hawthorne. New
York, in a section reputedly re-
served for the creme de la creme
of New York. Among those with
whom he rubs 'caskets' are ac-
tors JametsCagney and Sal
Minco; baseball great, 'Babe
Ruth'; and comedian, Fred Allen.
He is survived by his mom,
Ms Millicent Grace; sisters
Viveca, Elna and Yvonne, and
brothers Gilbert and Marion.
A memorial website where
one can offer tributes, condo-
lences or light a memorial
candle, has been set up in his
memory by the members of
the St Frances de Chantal
parish.

Ms. Arjoon with pieces from the photographic exhibition (Picture by Mike Norville)
VICE Chairman of the Guyana Marine Turtle Conservation Society (GMTCS), Mrs. Annette
Arjoon earlier this month launched a photographic exhibition at Le Meridien Pegasus Poolside.
On display at the exhibition were photographs of various scenes from Region One (Barima/Waini)
along with photos of exotic animals in their native habitats.
With the compliments of Le Meridien Manager Mr. Mongeau Pascal, the six photographs are on
display on a large wall at the hotel.
The pieces were framed with material from the liana vine free of cost by Ms. Joycelyn Dow and
will be replaced every three months with several photographs of different parts of Guyana, Aijoon
said.
She said that the GMTCS is involved in ongoing habitat protection in the region and the
photographs were taken during several field exercises there. In addition, similar pieces can be
purchased at Liana Canes and a fraction of the proceeds from each sale goes to the GMTCS.

Guyana Prize entries fall


By Shauna Jemmott

DESPITE the notable recent
decrease in participation of
Guyanese writers in the
Guyana Prize For Literature,
the coordinating committee
plans to offer the award to the
wider Caribbean, making it a
regional event in a few years
from now.
This is the Prize's ninth
competition, and organizers say
a special prize for the best of the
winning books in the various
categories ever since it started
here will soon be offered.
Committee member Al
Creighton expressed
disappointment that this year's
entries submitted for
competition in the various
categories only added up to 38.
He said 18 of these fell under the
'fiction' category, 17 were
'poetry' and three 'drama'.
There were more than 40 entries
submitted in the last
competition.
He highlighted the fact
that more books have been
launched over recent years,
than in the 1990's, which
either means more writers
have been producing, or the
few that have been producing
have been releasing more
work.


"Quite a few of these are
non-fiction books, so they don't
qualify for the Guyana Prize,"
he said, adding that most of the
recently launched fiction books
have been entered in the
competition. But none of the
first books of fiction has the
quality for a place on the
shortlist.
Creighton also stated that
books that have been released
within the past year do not
qualify for the prize this year,
but can enter next year
instead.
Creighton recalled that in
the mid to late 90s, entries
always numbered more than
60, with the highest ever
recorded in 1996, with 92
submissions. Participation
barely decreased in 1998, but
was still a bit high up to the
2000 prize.
"In the middle of the nineties
and the late nineties we used to
get very high numbers," he told
this newspaper. He believes that
some writers have stopped
participating because their books
have never really won a prize in
times they have submitted
works.
This year, 12 books were
short-listed for three levels of


competition, and another
automatically won the Drama
category after it was found by
the judges to be the only book
to fit the competition criteria.
The name of that book and its
author remain a secret until
the award ceremony billed
May 20 at the National
Cultural Centre.
First-timers Elly Niland
and Berkley Semple have
been short-listed in both the
'general poetry' and 'first
book of poetry' categories this
year. Niland's book titled 'In
Retrospect' and Semple's
'Lamplight Teller' is
competing with Ian
McDonald's 'Between Silence
and Silence' in the general
poetry category, while James
Bond's 'Moods: Pages in the
Light', Julie Hinds' 'Insight'
and Cecil Roopnarine's
'Upriver' are the other short-
listed books in the first book
of poetry category.
Niland's 'In Retrospect',
published by Dido Press, is
described as "an impressive first
volume of measured poems that
evoke strong but controlled
feelings as they strive to come
to grips with death and loss.
Here is finely wrought poetry


12 books short-listed


The South American ...


(From page 10)

Presidential summit in Brasilia
on May 8-11. The objective of
this meeting involving 12 South
American and 22 Arab countries
is to establish South-South
cooperation areas in combating
hunger and poverty, and also in
developing trade and
investment.
It is obvious, too, that
sooner rather than later, the
SACN leaders will have to also
meet with those of the
European Union and the U.S.A.
to work out cooperation
agreements since these entities
are the Community's main trade
and investment partners.
But despite the positive


advances, the continent is,
plagued with political unrest,
stifling poverty, crises in
governance, and sharp
economic and political
divisions. Guerrilla warfare
continues to create
instability in Colombia. And
almost daily, political
demonstrations erupt against
the democratically elected
governments in Bolivia and
Ecuador. (In Ecuador itself,
the President, accused by the
populace of packing the
Supreme Court with his
supporters, was ousted by the
Congress on April 20). In
addition, political-diplomatic
relations between a few of
the countries are not at their


best. These are all situations
that the OAS has faced, but
has not earned much success
in helping to find solutions to
such pressing problems. A
more close-knit SACN, with
its concentration directed
immediately on South
American issues, may be
able to apply better preventive
diplomacy to address these
troubles in their infancy and,
through "community"
efforts, work to develop better
understanding and find
solutions to at least most of
them.

that is weighed down but at the
same time enlivened by
memories of family.",
A brief note describing
Semple's 'Lamplight Teller'
states, "Another first
publication that impressed the
judges enough for them to rank
it as a legitimate contender for
the general poetry prize. These
are engagingly strong poems
about the Caribbean diaspora
that interrogates the meaning of
home and the challenges of living
abroad."
Mc Donald's 'Between
Silence and Silence' is described
by the judges as "a skillfully
conceived and executed
collection of poems, profound in
their astute poetic and
philosophical analyses of
individuals confronting the
process of change and need for
adaptation in personal and public
situations."
Of the collections of
poems short-listed in the first


book category, Cecil
Roopnarine's 'Upriver' was
highlighted as "a substantial
collection of moving and
passionate, often
philosophical, at times
playful poems that
interrogate issues of
nationality, identity, and
personal relationships."
'Insight', by Julie Hinds is
"a collection of poems that
offers strongly female
perspectives and a variety of
social and moral issues, using
language with an arresting
versatility in its better poems."
'Moods: Pages in the Light',
a WD Books publication, written
by James Bond, is described as a
collection of poems "employing
startling imagery and a range of
subtle voices and tones... In its
better poems this collection
offers fresh perspectives on
personal relationships and on
contemporary social issues often
with revealing historical
references."
Although four books were
short-listed in the general fiction
category this year, none of the

wunce 15 games respectively, to see
them into the second round.
rm 1st Christopher Ram of
Stabroek News 'A' and Mateo

President's Cup football .


Black Pearl and Pele



advance to semis


-By Allan La Rose

ANOTHER Georgetown
Football League Premier
team has been booted out of
the President's Cup
competition when quarter-
final action took place at the
Wales Community Centre
ground, West Bank
Demerara, Friday night.
Giant killers Black Pearl
continued their upsetting trend
in the tournament with a one-
nil win over CariAir Western
Tigers to add to their list of
casualties.
The first division side also


accounted for the ousting of
Georgetown Football Club
(GFC) with a 2-nil victory in
their first round encounter.
In a game played under
heavy conditions, neither team
adapted adequately and the
small crowd on hand had to put
up with a very pedestrian-
paced match complimented by
poor execution of skills.
The Tigers without a
number of key players, for
various reasons, looked a mere
shadow of the usual challenge
they often present to most
opposition.
The game's solitary


conversion caine seven
minutes from the end when
Devon Smith's perfectly
measured left-footed cross
from deep on the left, midway
into the Tigers' half, found the
unmarked head of Jason
Clarke. His timely header at
the far post beat goalkeeper
Rolex Scott to his left and
silenced the Tigers' fans.
It was a similar score line in
the feature game of the double
header as Pele advanced to the
last four at the expense of BV/
Triumph.
A fine solo run down the
left by the experienced and

Youth cyclist to enter


T&T meet on new ride


By Isaiah Chappelle

FAST-RISING youth cyclist
Geron Williams received a
spanking new racing cycle for
the West Indies versus the
Rest of the World meet, billed
for Trinidad & Tobago over
the next week.
DeSinco Trading presented
the cycle to Williams, yester-
day, in a special presentation re-
ception at the company's Sher-
iff Street complex.
Businessman Frank De
Abreu said the gesture
materialised from a belief that
cycling, boxing or track & field
would give Guyana the
country's first Olympic gold
medal.
"It is our best hope for a
gold medal at the Olympics," De
Abreu declared.
De. Abreu, however,
pointed out that he must not be
thanked for the gesture, but the
consumers who support the
brand of the company.
"They made this happen."


* . "
l Kir


Director of Sport Neil
Kumar said he appreciated the
gesture from De Abreu, point-
ing out the businessman did not
only put money but he follows
sport.
Kumar pointed out that the
young rider was outstanding be-
cause of the support he got
. from his parents.
He said the sport was now
important because it was now
being taught in school and be-
ing offered at the CXC.
President of the Guyana
Olympic Association (GOA)
K. Juman-Yassin described
the gesture as "kind".
"Frank has been making an
invaluable contribution to
sport."
Juman-Yassin said he hoped
to see cycling being represented
at all the prestigious interna-
tional Games, such as the Pan
American, onwards.
"You must have a mindset
that this is where I want to go."
He said that the GOA,
through Olympic Solidarity,

carried out several courses, but
a lot of coaches had gone astray
and called on them to return and
adopt a school to work with.
Juman-Yassin also called on
the government to provide a
plot of land to build the GOA
headquarters.
The GOA boss
complimented National cycling
coach Hassan Mohamed under
whom Williams started his
riding career in the National
Park Programme.
Mohamed said he was for-
tunate to have the first encoun-
ter with young Williams and
when he started he could not
complete a lap around the Na-
tional Park circuit. He now
competes in the 12-14 years age
group and is promoted to the
juveniles so that he could de-
velop.
"But soon he will have to
move up because he is domi-
nating both," Mohamed de-
clared.
He added: "With his disci-
pline and dedication and with
support like the one from
DeSinco he has a far way to go."

Skindul ence



(Facelift the non-surgical way


A local salon is offer
ing a new beauty
treatment that of
fersa face lift in 30
minutes without surgical in-
tervention.
"Skaidlgence', marketed in
NthAmerica,Europe, Austra-
lia and Asia and other countries
by Texas-based Lexxus Interna-
tional, is a three-part beauty
emulsion providing similar ef-
fects of putting one's face under
the sugicalblade. It is being of-
feedbyModfinSal on Church

International network dis-
tributlr of Lexxus International
products, Mr. Dennis Telford,
who is campaigning to have
Lexxus products adopted by
Guyanese, says that
Skindidlgence has evolved out of
a wcddwide competitive youth
drivenculture.
When Lexxus International
was launched January, 2001 it
was with an intimacy cream
called Alura, which enhances
sen alimimacy forwome Later
that year the company intro-
duced La Vie, a healthy energy
drink, which blends red grapes,
gimsEggre, n tea,miana, gin-
ger oot, and hawthorn.
Skindulgence, described
asamewaluionaryproduct, was
landed in 2002.
Lexxus products, which
have cometoincludea Spa Col-


election for hands and feet, Spa
Silk Lotion, Lexlips enriching
cream, Premium Noni Juice and
Valura, an intimacy spray for
men, are now widely marketed
in the USA, Canada, Australia,
New Zealand, Taiwan, Korea,
Philippines, Singapore, India,
Hong Kong, Barbados, Brazil,
Japan, China, Mongolia,
Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Russia,
Belams, Estonia, Trinidad and
Tobago, and other parts of East-
ern Europe.
But within this combination
of products, to make one look
and feel good, Skindulgence has
become prominent, perhaps be-
cause it is a facial beautifier. And
the face is undoubtedly one's
most impacting physical feature.
Thus it was with much
anticipation that I accepted
Marcia's invitation for my
Skindulgence facelift. She
was similarly eager to provide
me the beautifying experience
and also to utilise the Spa for
Hands, Spa for Feet, and Spa
Silk Lotion.
Lexxus says that there are
visible results after the first use
of Skindulgence and continued
use helps to diminish the ap-
pearance of fine lines and
wrinkles, improve skin tone and
colour, give a more youthful ra-
diance, and develop the feel of
firmer facial muscles.
Surgeon and author of The


Forever Factor, Dr. James Bar-
ber, one of the world's foremost
authorities on longevity and anti-
aging medicine, and international
supermodel KimAlexis have cor-_
roborated theLexxs declaration.
According to Dr. Barber the
ingredients of Skindulgence acti-
vate nerve endings beneath the
skin that tighten voluntary and
involuntary muscles, giving the
face an isometric exercise.
Kim, who has graced the
covers of more than 500 maga-
zines, says that Skindulgence
makes one look younger in min-
utes.
Dr. Barber gives
assurance that anyone can
use Skindulgence regardless
of skin type or age and that it
also works to improve the
appearance of the neck,
cleavage area and back of
hands.
The difference with Lexxus
products is that they are all from
natural ingredients, not utilising
artificial additives or colouring.
Dr. Barber said that chemi-
cal-based beauty products, over
time, cause irritation, redness,
and damage to fibres of the skin
by hydrating, dehydrating, re-
hydrating and plumping the skin,
but Skindulgence increases
muscle tone, stimulates the
muscles and gives longevity to
the process.
Managing beautician at


Modfin, Marcia Trotz, invited
me to try the product At the
salon, she cleansed my face and
applied the mask, which I kept
on for 30 minutes. She removed
the mask then applied the
moisturiser. With all my usage
of beauty products,
Skindulgence is thetightestmask
that I have ever used.
Indeed, my face looked dif-
ferent after 30 minutes.
As a network distributor,
Mr. Telford is looking to open
up the markets for
Skindulgence and other
Lexxus products, in the Car-
ibbean and South America.

Better to release the



guilty than to risk



convicting the innocent


Convicted murderer freed by Court of Appeal


ROYSTON Ames, called
'Gomes' was convicted of rob-
bery/murder in 1991 by the
.jii'y on shady identification
evidence which the trial
Judge did not bring to the
jury's attention in her sum-
ming-up.
This resulted in the jury
convicting the man for murder.
But because the trial Judge
misdirected the jury on the
question of identification, the
Guyana Court of Appeal, after
being satisfied that the appellant
did not have a fair trial, allowed
Ames' appeal. The conviction
and death sentence were
quashed and set aside.
At the hearing of his appeal,
Ames was represented by At-
torney-at-law, Mr. Khemraj
Ramjattan.
The then acting Director of
Public Prosecutions, Mr. Ian
Chang, had appeared for the
State.
The Guyana Court of Ap-


peal was constituted by Chan-
cellor of the Judiciary, Mr. Ken-
neth George and Justices of Ap-
peal. Mr. C. C. Kennard (who
later became Chancellor) and
Ms. Desiree Bernard, (who be-
came Chancellor, and is a cur-
rent Judge of the Caribbean
Court of Justice.)
At the jury trial, the pros-




S'YGeo


ecution based its identification
on inadequate testimony built
on conflicting, hearsay and in-
admissible evidence of wit-
nesses. the strength of which
surrounded a cut index finger of
the appellant.
The appellant was said to

on a number of grounds, some
of which thc Appellate Court
said merited consideration.
Among other things, the
grounds were:
(1) The trial Judge had
erred in law, having regard to the
general and specific weaknesses
of Ihe identification evidence,
when she failed-to withdraw the
case from the jury at the close
of the case for the prosecution.
(ii) The trial Judge failed
in her summing up to coherently
deal with the weaknesses of the
identification evidence so that
the cumulative impact of the
said weaknesses was not fairly
placed for the jury's consider-
ation.
(iii) The learned trial
Judge failed to direct the jury
properly on evidence of a
highly prejudicial nature when
summing up to the jury.
Sharma, who was 47 years
old at the time of his death,
lived at Anna Catherina, West
Coast Demerara with his wife
Indranie and children, including
Deodat.
On the night of November
27. 1989, Deodat retired to bed
in the kitchen of the family
home at about 9 pm. His father
and mother retired to bed some-
time later in one of the bedrooms
of the said house.
At about 12.45 am, Deodat
was aroused from his sleep by
something cold being pressed
against his neck. He then
realized that someone was near
to him in the kitchen. That per-
son, according to liint, was a mania
who said "wake up". Deodat
said he observed that the per-
son, who had a gun, also wore
a handkerchief tied around his
face.
He said that he had
recognized that person as the
appellant whom he knew as
'Gomes' by what he described
as "a cut right index finger". He
went on to say how the intruder
opened the window of the
kitchen and two others, whose
faces were covered, also entered
the building. All three men pro-


ceeded to assault him. He lost
consciousness and when he re-
covered he realized that he was
then in the hall of the house and
was tied up with a bed-sheet.
His mother, Indranic
Sharma, said that sometime af-
ter midnight, that very night, she
was aroused by a gunshot. She
saw a man over her husband -
who was lying near to her on a
bed with a gun saying "don't
scream, I gon murder you. Give
me the jewellery and money".
The husband replied by saying
.that he did not have any.
According to the woman.
that man then placed the gun at
her head saying: "Don't
scream," after which he said
"On shucks man," when he ap-
parently realized that there was
no more ammunition in the gun.
He then demanded money and
jewellery. She replied saying
that she did not have any, after
which the man commenced to
cuff her about the body, includ-
ing her face, and then proceeded
to search the wardrobe in the
bedroom.
She then pretended, to be
searching and whilst so do-
ing, her hand touched the
floor and she felt something
sticky. At that stage she
realized that her husband was
injured and was bleeding.
Shortly thereafter, the man
brought her out of the bed-
room to the hall and contin-
ued his demand for money
and jewellery whereupon she
gave him one of her finger
rings. The man was not sat-
isfied with that but de-
manded her wedding ring as
well. There was then a
struggle between herself and
the man during which she
pulled down the white hand-
kerchief, which he had
placed on his face. She then
realized that it was the appel-
lant, whom she had known for
several years by the alias of
'Gomes'.
The light in the room was
on she said. The woman testi-
- fied that the appellant contin-


ued to assault her by cuffing her
and by bouncing her head on the
wall. At about the same time
she saw two other men in the
hall, one of whom removed a
video cassette recorder.
When the bandits left, she
untied her son and asked him if
he had rocognised anyone. He
replied by saying that he had
recognized 'Gomes'. Both of
them started to scream and she
opened the. front door of the
house and shouted: "Gomes
you been in me house".
According to her, later, in
company with her husband,
who was bleeding from his
nose, and Deodat, who was also
injured, they went to Leonora
Police Station where a report
was made. The son was referred
to West Demerara Hospital and
the husband to the Georgetown
Hospital where he died on No-
vember 30. 1989.
On December 4, 1989, Dr.
. Nehaul Singh performed a post
mortem examination on the
body and found that there was
a penetrating wound in the brain
.at .the base of the skull. Cause
of death was due to cerebral
haemorrhage and.a penetrating
graniae wound which in his
opinion were caused by a gun
shot.
Prior to that, however, on
November 30,. 1989, Dr.
Muchanegumbo had performed
an operation on the head of the
deceased and had found that
there was a penetrating wound
in the brain itself. He traced the
tract, and in that tract he found
a .25 bullet, which he later
handed over to the police.
The defence of the appel-
lant at the trial was an alibi that
he had slept at the home of his
girlfriend at Den Amstel, West
Coast Demerara, on the night of
the incident.
He also called one wit-
ness in his defence, Corporal
of Police Wesley Austin, who
testified that he had known
the appellant for many years,

LIAbdTERAR


Abdur-Rahman


Slade Hopkinson


1934


by Petamber Persaud

a man of many parts
New Amsterdam,
Berbice, Georgetown,
Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica,
Trinidad and North America
- parts of the world in which
he lived. Parts he played in
the world were a head
teacher, university lecturer,
journalist, poet, actor, play-
wright and painter.
And that's only part of the
story. He played a part in pro-
ducing the Caribbean's first sci-
fi writer. Nalo Hopkinson.
Hopkinson would have
played a more meaningful part
in the arts and literature of
Guyana if the country had
proper dialysis treatment to of-
fer him while he was here dur-
ing the late 1960s. But we are
mindful of his brief teaching
stint at the University of
Guyana.
During this short sojourn in


his homeland, he found himself
caught up in two informal
groups, one discussing politics
and the other literature. The lat-
ter group included Milton
Vishnu Williams, the Carter
brothers Martin and Jerome,
Ivan Van Sertima, Wilson Har-
ris and Sydney Singh sur-
veyor, writer and critic. A po-
litical creature he was, as de-
scribed by the blurb of
'Snowscape With Signature', a
'pre-eminent recorder of 20th
century Caribbean upheaval'. In
a note to the poem. 'Guyana:
Freedom Year', he wrote, "In the
year 1962, all letters sent out by
government departments in the
then colony of British Guiana
were stamped with the slogan
'Freedom Year', in anticipation
of the achievement of indepen-
dence".
Abdur-Rahman Slade
Hopkinson was born in New
Amsterdam, Berbice, in the year
1934. His father, Leonard, was
a well-known barrister and his


Perhaps, it was this reli



mother, Neibert, was a nurse
and a staunch Roman Catholic.
Perhaps, it was this. religious
leaning that accounted for Slade
Hopkinson going to St. Mary's
Roman Catholic Primary
School, Camp Street and
Brickdam, and for him being
more studious than athletic as
Jerome Carter opined.
Hopkinson later attended St.
Stanislaus College for a short
time.
After his father died,
Hopkinson moved with his
mother to Barbados in 1947.
He completed his secondary
school education at Harrison
College. In 1952, he won an
open scholarship to the
University College of the
West Indies in Jamaica where
he gained a B.A. and a Dip.
Ed. He played an active role
in the university theatre,
leaving an indelible mark on
the drama fraternity with his
remarkable performance in
'Lear'.

While in Jamaica, he met his
wife, Freda, worked as a teacher,
newspaper editor and informa-
tion officer for the government
of that country.
Hopkinson started writing
at university. According to
Mervyn Morris, Hopkinson
was "already a serious poet"
when they met in the early fif-
ties. 'The Four and other po-
ems', his first collection, was
published in Barbados in 1954.
Two years later, his poetry was
featured in Edna Manley's 'Fo-


1993


cus' which was quite an achieve-
ment in those days. His poems
found their way into other sig-
nificant outlets like 'Bim', 'Car-
ibbean Quarterly', 'Caribbean
Voices', 'The Gleaner',
'Breaklight', 'Savacou', 'Com-
monwealth Poems of Today'
and 'New Voices of the Comn-
monwealth'.
In 1962, he moved to
Trinidad with his wife and first
child. On this island, he joined
Derek Walcott's Trinidad The-
atre Workshop. As his wont',


wherever he went, he left a
greater mark on the society with
his acting. This time it was
playing the celebrated Corporal
Lestrade in Walcott's 'Dream on
Monkey Mountain'.
It was during the sixties, he
became a Muslim, reflected in
his later writing.
Wanting to do something
meaningful in drama for the re-
gion, Hopkinson founded the
Caribbean Theatre Guild in
1970 but increasing kidney fail-
ure truncated his theatrical
endeavours.
Back in Guyana, he tried
to beat the odds in order to

find friends

Hello,

I'm a Guyanese
teenager currently
living in the United
States.
The reason I'm
writing is that I'm hop-
ing that you can help
me locate some of my
friends that I went to
school with. I finished
school in 2003. I at-
tended the New
Amsterdam Multilat-
eral School. I was a
student there from
1998 -2003.
I'd be grateful if
you will publish these
few lines for me, be-
cause I would really
love to get in touch
with my old friends.

GLITTERS


I 've been to a social
worker and a marriage
counsellor. I hope you
can offer me some new
advice.
Two years ago I was very,
very sick and beginning to be
homebound. I could no longer
get my teenage daughter up in
the morning or pick her up from
school. I would often wait for
her to come home from school
to find me on the floor, unable
to get myself onto the couch.
An MRI revealed a growth
in my brain. This disturbed my
gait and caused havoc like un-
controllable peeing. I could not
even walk around the block, and
my house fell into a state of
chaos.
I was afraid for my daugh-
ter. Her biological father wasn't.
mature enough to care for her,
and I thought he would pilfer
money intended for her. 1
needed someone to watch over
my daughter, a good-hearted

wood tree possesses "the heart"
or the central part of the log,
with the special decorative prop-
erties.
"This is because a fungus
triggers the colouration of the in-
ner part of the tree," he ex-
plained.
When the German students
returned with one of the pieces
to Germany, others expressed
interest and suggested that it
could be bought at high prices.
And so they returned to
Surama with the idea.
"If you can cut down one
tree and get the same money
or more than what you would
get by cutting down three,
well then why cut down the
other two," Ben ter Welle rea-
soned.
"Prior to now, anybody
would go and cut down the
trees. Who benefits? Not the
community, only individuals and
you have a lot of wastage,"
added Sydney.
The Pyraye project is being
funded by the non-profit foun-
dation Kanada-Amazonas Initia-
tive E.V.
A German television group
is currently in the village, film-
ing for a documentary on
Guyana's wild animals.
Their focus includes the
green Anacondas.
In Surama, just a stone's
throw away from the school, a
small area has become a zoo for
animals that are being used for
the filming.
Leon Bento, 16, is not afraid
of the giant Anacondas two,
measuring 22 feet each and was
happy to open up their cage and
show off his skill at handling the
reptiles which were caught in the
Burro Burro River.
"This is normal for me," he
chuckles, as he sees through my
fright coming that close to the
monsters.
Leon and about nine others
manage the Surama zoo, which
is home to animals including gi-
ant river tortoises, capybaras, an
ocelot, macaws, deer, and mon-
keys.
Less than a decade ago,
Sydney pointed out, these ani-
inals would have been slaugh-
tered and caten.
But with projects like
these, he said the youths are
developing a deeper love for
the animals and the tinder-
standing of the "need" to keep
them alive.
"When people come here to


Loreen Allicock, who has
been teaching at the Surama
school since 1997, is one of the
Macushi language teachers in the
village.
Her grandmother never
spoke English, only Macushi.
The Macushi teaching
classes in Surama are part of a
wider programme carried out in
the communities of the North
Rupununi.
The programme, now being
managed by the Macushi Re-
search Unit at Annai, has re-
ceived funding from the Cana-
dian Organisation for Develop-
ment and Education, and the Ca-
nadian International Develop-
ment Agency, with support from
Iwokrama.
The Macushi Language
Programme grew out of a 16-
month project in 1995-6 that
was held to catalogue Macushi
Ethnobotany using the women
from eight North Rupununi vil-
lages.
Iwokrama funded this initia-
tive, through a Global Environ-
ment Facility grant.
As a result of this initiative,
the Macushi Research Unit was
formed to especially promote
Macushi teaching programmes in
schools.
Loreen, who benefited from
her mother's knowledge of the
Macushi language, is now happy
to be passing on her knowledge
to the younger generation.


She said that the Macushi
people can be described as a

"I guess you could say I

she smiled.
At first, Jean taught classes
voluntarily, but now, with the
importance of Surama's growing
tourism drive, she is being paid
a stipend.
The children are taught to
sing like a Macushi and to dance
like a Macushi.
She tried to show me the
moves of the Parishara dance,
but I'm a terrible dancer!
For Jean, her teaching is a
means of keeping her tradition
alive to her as well.
"I love being a Macushi. I
don't want to forget my culture
and I don't want the children to
live not knowing where they
came from," Jean said.
"To be frank, the children
don't know our way of life," she
pointed out.
And so, with her Sunday af-
ternoon classes, Jean continues
her challenge of getting the chil-
dren "back to basics."

THE
ENTERPRISING
SPIRIT OF
SURAMA
Indira Anandjit, the Execu-
tive Director of the Guyana
Tourism Authority said a num-


ber of Amerindian communities
in the interior are also looking at
venturing into tourism and said
it would be useful if they could
copy Surama in going forward
with their ideas.
"We're very proud of
what Suramina is doing and we
would like to use Surama as a
model in community tour-
ism," she said.
"The mere fact that they
are such a small and young
community and are managing
their initiatives so well speaks
volumes about their spirit,"
she added.
Anandjit said what she finds
admirable is that the community
is mindful that people don't
crowd the community so that
they loose "the authenticity" of
what they have.
"Sydney has said that they
don't want visitors flocking to
the community, and this is
important if they want to keep
the product intact because what
they are doing now is absolutely
fantastic and it would be even
more so if they can maintain
this," she said.
With what they have
achieved and with their ideals
clear in mind, it doesn't seem
that Surama will change its
'green' heart.
As they say in Macushi
tongue Ko'nanni. ,

'PROTECT OUR CHILDREN



AND OUR FUTURE'


Hello Readers,


L ast week, we fo
caused on the origin
of Earth Day and
just how it came
about. This week, we will fo-
cus on how our children can
save the earth. Enjoy!
There are billions and bil-
lions of people who live on our
earth. Each person on earth
needs a place to live. We also
need materials to build our
homes and businesses. We need
power to make things work and
land to grow food and raise ani-
mals. There are several things
we should do to preserve the
land we live on. We can protect


our parks, playgrounds and
even our own backyards. We
can plant flowers and trees to
make our world a beautiful place
to live. We can learn to reuse and
recycle paper, plastics, alumi-
num, and glass.
Every living thing
needs fresh air to breathe.
Energy is used to make
many of the modern
comforts we enjoy.
However, the use of energy
whether in a factory or a
car results in air pollution.
We help to reduce air
pollution by walking more,
car pooling, and riding
buses.
Water is essential to life.
We use water to drink and to


grow plants. Our water is be-
ing polluted by sewage,
waste from factories, and oil.
We can better conserve water
by not throwing garbage in
rivers and lakes. We can also
save water by not wasting it
at home.

that you youths can do to

Better to release the


guilty than to risk...

From page IV
and as far as he was aware, the appellant attended Stewartville Primary School and not the
Anna Catherina Primary School as testified by Indranie Sharma.
Justice Kennard who delivered the judgment, narrated the guidelines which the trial Judge had
not observed in her summing up and added: "The impression was being conveyed to the jury that
Deodat Sharma's identification of one of the bandits (the appellant) by means of a "cut right index
finger" was evidence which could be used to support Indranie Sharma's identification evidence,
which was clearly wrong.
"Those directions were even more harmful when it is borne in mind that there is no evidence at
all that when the appellant was arrested, he, in fact, had 'a cut right index finger' and in dealing
with the evidence of Deodat Sharma, the trial Judge ought to have drawn the jury's attention to
that fact. She should have specifically directed the jury that the evidence of Deodat Sharma could
in no way lend support to that of his mother that the appellant was one of the persons who was
in the house that nighti and further, she should have told them that the only evidence linking the
appellant with the commission of the crime was that of Indranie Sharma, which she failed to do.
"The evidence of peodat Sharma was admissible, but because of the limited use that could
have been made of it, tle trial Judge would have been quite justified, in the exercise of her discretion,
to have excluded it. i
"But having admitted it, she was in duty bound to have advised the jury.
"In dealing with the weaknesses in Indranie Sharma's identification evidence, the trial Judge -
having admitted the evidence of what Deodat Sharma had told his mother in the absence of the
appellant, that is, he had recognized one of the men as 'Gomes', even though strictly speaking, it
was not admissible in Ovidence-in-chief should have told the jury that it was significant that she
did not call out the name 'Gomes' until her son Deodat mentioned that name and this was after she
had asked him whether he had recognized any of the bandits and he.had replied by saying that he
had recognized 'Gome'.
"Therefore, they ought to consider whether her only reason for saying it was 'Gomes'
(the appellant) was because Deodat had told her that one of the men who had entered the
house was 'Gomes' and that if they so found, then they could not properly find the appel-
lant guilty.
"As a matter of f4ct, the trial Judge merely reported what was said between mother ano son.
The trial Judge completely lost the significance of that evidence when: she told the jury: 'The pros-
ecution is asking whai is wrong with her asking her son.if e had recognized anyone. They were in
different parts of the house". I
Reacting:to that direction by the trial Judge. JusLnce Kennard declared: "In my opinion, here
was a lot wrong aboup her asking her son if he had recognized anyone, because if she had, in fact,
recognized anyone, ad more particularly 'Gomes', it would seem to me she would have tol her
son this instead of her asking him if he had recognized anyone. Her failure to tell her son that she
had recognized ;'Gomes' would certainly affect not only her Sredibility but her reliability as ,ell,"
Judge Kennard said.
In his concluding remarks, Justice Kennard cited in support of his judgment a part of the 'deci-
sion of Chancellor Haynes in the case of the State v. Baichandeen (supra) at p. 228. '
According to that decision, when a trial is not conducted according to law, the Court may be
obliged to use the de cription of Byrne J in R v. Patel; (1951) 35 CAR 62 at 66 the courtwas left
in a position of tryinto steer between the dangers of releasing to the world unpunished Mn obvi-
ously guilty man andlof upholding the conviction of a possible innocent man.
"In such a case, the Court would lean to the more merciful course, since it is letter to
.release the guilty than to run the risk of convicting the innocent," the decision read.

AS WE seek to elucidate
what really happened last
January from a geographic
point of view, we need to re-
view the meteorological ex-
planations now available.

[1 CDERA Sitrep 24 Jan
2005 Region responds to
flooding in Guyana.
A surface level trough en-
hanced by the Inter-Tropical
Convergence Zone resulted in
heavy rainfall over Guyana dur-


ing the period December 26.
2004 to January 18. 2005. The
almost continuous rainfall pro-
duced flooding in the capital
Georgetown and most of the
country's other Regions...
Source: Caribbean Disaster
Emergency Response Agency
(CDERA) Date: 24 Jan 2005]

It is at this point we will
further outline another variable
affecting weather and climate lo-
cally.
What is the ITCZ (Inter-


tropical Convergence Zone)
On or near the equator,
where average solar radiation is
greatest, air is warmed at the
surface and rises. This creates a
band of low air pressure, centered
on the equator. This rising air
comprises one segment of a cir-
culation pattern called the
Hadley Cell. The rising air is re-
placed by the Trade Winds ap-
proaching the equator from
north and south. As the trade
winds meet near the equator.
surface convergence and uplift
take place. For this reason, the
equatorial band of low pressure
is called the Equatorial Trough,
Intertropical Convergence Zone,
or the ITCZ.
The ITCZ is a region of
light winds, which lends it the
name the doldrums. The conver-
gence of the Southeast and
Northeast Trade Winds, within
the doldrums, creates a zone of
Cumulus clouds and attendant


shower activity. Cumulus
clouds often build up to great
heights. Aircraft reports have
estimated tops of Cumulonim-
bus to be as high as 12,000 m.
The ITCZ varies from 20 miles
to as much as 300 miles in
width, and typically has an un-
dulating conformation.
We are interested in the
ITCZ because, under certain cir-
cumstances, tropical depres-
sions on the ITCZ intensify to
hurricanes. It may seem puz-
zling that the ITCZ can produce
cyclones, when the Coriolis
force is at its weakest near the
equator. The answer to this
puzzle lies in the fact that the
ITCZ is not stationary on the
equator, but migrates north and
south with the seasons. The
ITCZ moves north during the
high-sun season of the Northern
Hemisphere, and south during
the high-sun season in the
Southern Hemisphere. These


movements are not perfectly
symmetrical above and below
the equator, because of the in-
fluence of land masses, among
other factors.
When the ITCZ is near the
equator, the convergence of sur-
face winds along the ITCZ is
likely to take the form of par-,.
allel flow, with easterly wind
approaching the doldrums from
both north and south. When the.
Trade Winds converging at the.
ITCZ are weak and nearly par-
allel to it, the ITCZ tends to
narrow in width, and show
little shower activity. This con-
dition is shown below.
When the ITCZ lies south
of the Geographic Equator, as
it does in the Western Pacific
and Indian Oceans, the North-
east Trade Winds acquire a
northwesterly direction after


crossing the equator (because
the Coriolis force changes direc-
tion below the equator!) In this
situation, the convergence is
strong and favors the formation
of a Tropical Depression. (In the
diagram below, note that the di-
rection of the winds entering the
. low encourages clockwise rota-
tion, which is cyclonic in the
Southern Hemisphere).
When the ITCZ lies north
of the Geographic Equator, the
Southeast Trade Winds ac-
quire a southwesterly direc-
tion after crossing the equa-
tor and again the convergence
pattern favours the formation
of a Tropical Depression.
Tropical depressions tend to
move from east to west at a

CANCER


CONTINUED


BONE TUMOURS
AS USUAL, it must
be made clear that
not every swelling
of the bone is a
cancer. Many bones have a
thin tissue covering them. In
this tissue are nerves and
blood vessels. A good example
is the shin bone (Tibia). If
you sustain a hard knock on
your shin, it pains (lots of
nerves in the thin skin cov-
ering the bone) and it swells
(the blood vessels burst and
the blood accumulates caus-
ing a swelling).
Dogs experience both benign
and malignant tumours. The
t.pe of malignant tumour most
encountered b\ cinrnanan, in
practice is the sarcoma The


more precise term is Osteogenic
Sarcoma or Osteosarcoma).
We usually don't see ma-
lignant bone cancers develop-
ing in the early years of a
dog's life. It seems more to be
a "middle-age" disease.
Males seem to develop os-
teosarcomas much more fre-
quently than do bitches. From
my own experience, I have
encountered osteosarcomas
in Rottweilers, German
Shepherds and Dobermans.
The literature, in fact, de-
fines this bone cancer as a
"large dog" disease. The lit-
erature lists St. Bernards,
New foundlands. Great
Danes. Great P*renees, Irish
Setters ill erN larope hreedk

comas. I myself haie neter

Donna


e-


DONNA Reed was a
unique and vital
Hollywood actress
who destroyed the
idea that a beautiful woman
in face and figure should be
judged by such qualities.
Reed's beauty stops us in our
tracks, but we will be disap-
pointed if we like her mainly
for this.
The idea that similar fea-
tures of outward physical
beauty between man and
woman, or couples, should
guide our lives was rejected by
all or most of Reed's film-roles,
which emphasised qualities of
inner human character and iden-
tity as the moral foundation
upon which enduring and happy
romantic unions and family life
should be based.
Reed was a stunningly
pretty farm girl who believed
strongly in education, became a
school teacher and secretary,
even while accepting her first
minor career roles. In 1945, she
landed her first major role as a
tough nurse in the war-time
South Pacific islands in John
Ford's 'They Were Expendable',
where her uninhibited duties
clash with John Wayne's macho


a

f
r

HI
it'


that point of similarity and ac-
ceptance between dissimilar in-
dividuals.
By 1946, Reed starred in
'Faithful in my Fashion' as the
fun-loving girl falling in and out
of love. Asked about the role in
an early interview, she declared:
"There are no rules". But later,
in 1946, Reed gave the world
one of its greatest and most
cherished films: 'It's a Wonder-
ful Life', directed by Frank
Capra, Hollywood's first great
socialistic film-maker.
Capra saw Reed's
potential as a strong-spirited
actress and gave her the role
as the simple girl in James
Stewart's small town
neighbourhood. Reed's
defiance of social and
familial bias inspires
Stewart's shy love for her,
and encourages his belief in
cooperative banking. Reed
and Stewart begin their
married life in poverty, but
also in true love, in a
ramshackle house with a
leaking roof and no


electricity. Reed sticks by
Stewart through his deepest
despair, and becomes the wife
whose spirit brings joy and
contentment when it is
needed most.
'It's a Wonderful Life' is the
sort of film classic more real and
practically inspirational than
dogmatic sermons and lectures
on good morals. After Donna
Reed became a star with this
film, Hollywood studios
wanted her to repeat the role in
lesser films, simply to cash in
at the box office. In 1947, she
made 'Green Dolphin Street', a
tear-jerking story where she
plays the girl who loses the man
she loves to her sister due to
the mis-spelling of her name in
a letter of proposal! It was a role
she cherished, and would almost
repeat later in the 1950's film
'The Last Time I Saw Paris',
where she plays Liz Taylor's
caring sister in another good
film about a wonderful
unconventional family.
But there was a side to
Reed that liked the outdoor life,


with the wind, sun and dust of
the West on her face. Conse-
quently, some of Reed's most
lively and memorable roles are
in Westerns, where her pretty
face is sun-burnt, her gaze fierce
and defiant, her slim figure agile
and seductive in sleek trousers,
skirts, dr shirts. It is in
Westerns that Donna Reed's
brilliant fashion sense mixed
with domestic sensuality be-
comes subtly communicated.
In 'Hangman's Knot' of
1952, a classic Western that
thrilled film critics and the pub-
lic, Reed plays the brave mor-
ally tough Union nurse who
changes Randolph Scott's way-
ward ways. The film's final
scenes with Reed's sensual gaze
and a shawl wrapped around
her shoulders as she hugs Scott
on the small ranch they will
build together are stunningly in-
fluential.
In 1953, Reed made 'Gun
Fury', a unique and daring clas-
sic Western rarely seen today.
Reed plays Rock Hudson's
fiance kidnapped for sensual

1954, Reed is delightful as a
flirtatious, spunky woman
who visits a frontier fort and
6 befriends a U.S. Cavalry doc-
tor who gets into trouble for
trying to help native Kiowa
Indians.

St In 'Backlash' of 1956, a

great John Sturges, Reed ap-

perience woman in search of her
missing husband and hidden
treasure, but finds drifter Rich-
ard Widmark instead, and be-
comes his woman.

Hollywood's past decades.
Reed was well aware that
Hollywood's production and
distribution system would not
champion films that cast a criti-
cal viewpoint on American so-
ciety.
Since 1953, she lobbied
for roles that would exhibit
her full acting abilities, and
in that year was given one of
her most touching and tender
roles as the young nightclub
hooker in Hawaii in 'From
Here to Eternity', where she
falls in love with the caring
Montgomery Clift. Reed
would win an Oscar for her
role in this film, which con-
tinues to explore the difficult
point where dissimilar per-
sons could find their moral
similarity.
In 'The Benny Goodman
Story' of 1956, she also made
her final brilliant film 'Beyond
Mombasa' before retiring from
movies in 1958. Her role as the
wild and plain missionary's
niece in Africa who comes to re-
spect a misunderstood Cornel
Wilde, is unique in this radical
British production film rarely
seen today, which exposed
treachery and racism brought by
missionaries and white colonial-
ism to East Africa.
Off screen in real life,
Donna Reed remained simple
and very adventurous, travel-
ling in Africa, India, and Asia.
In 1960's America, she be-
came the star of 'The Donna
Reed Show' on TV, and was
outspoken against the
Nuclear Arms race and
America's War in Vietnam,
making sure our memory of
her as a Hollywood actress
went far beyond her pretty


.,face.
