Hope for cancer patients

By Mark Ramotar

THE Government is cur-
rently working out an ar-
rangement with a medical
group from the United States
to have the very expensive
and not readily available Ra-
dio Therapy treatment for
cancer patients available in
Guyana for the first time,
President Bharrat Jagdeo an-
nounced yesterday.
He said the service will cost

too expensive to send everyone
"So I am very pleased with
this programme because for the
first time ever in Guyana's his-
tory we will be able to provide
these services here with State
support... so the cost of the
treatment will not be (as) pro-
hibitive as they are abroad," he

they suffer from cancer and we are

the mining town of Linden
where he is currently leading his
Cabinet on a packed two-day

about this programme because it

cancer patients.

the cost and the availability of building materials in
Guyana such as sand. cement, stone and steel due to the
huge construction boom in the public and private sectors

5 SUNDAY CHRONICLE July 17, 2005

1 i i


S OME may cynically ask why the need for
the Guyanese Head of State to reassure
the public at this time about his commitment to
"rigidly" defend the independence of this nation's
A quick answer could be that, conscious of
ongoing controversies in some CARICOM countries
involving, variously, the Judiciary, governments and
opposition parties, President Bharrat Jagdeo is anxious
to reaffirm where his own administration stands in
relation to the separation of powers and independence
of the Judiciary.
There could, of course, be more substantial
reasons since, in ie-emphasising commitment to
judicial independence, he has considered it relevant to
remind this nation why there must be NO RETURN to
that grim period in our post-independence history, when
the Judiciary also fell victim to an infamous, anti-

democratic doctrine of "party paramountcy".
One quite significant development in
between the change in governance from People's
National Congress rule that ended in October 1992, and
that of today's People's Progressive Party/Civic, is the
inauguration of the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) on
April 16 this year which, like Barbados, is now Guyana's
final Appellate Court.
Access to the CCJ to challenge judgements
from what has been our final court of appeal, since
Guyana severed ties with the Privy Council in
London, should indeed help our judges to be even
more careful in dispensing justice, knowing that there
is now a higher court for challenging their rulings. This
is good for the Judiciary and the people and a reminder
also to the political directorate.
Apart from the reaffirmation of commitment
to safeguarding the independence of the Judiciary, it is
encouraging to know that President
Jagdeo recognizes as problems to be resolved the lack
of required resources to ensure better performance
by the Judiciary. This must be addressed as a matter
of priority to give practical meaning to expressed
concerns for justice and independence of the
-It was perhaps fitting that President Jagdeo
chose the moment of last week's ceremonial opening
of the new $51 million Sub-Registry of the High Court at

Suddie in the Essequibo, to point to both the importance
of having a competent and independent Judiciary as
well as the need to provide the resources for improved
The Registrar of the Supreme Court, Sita Ramlall,
evidently quite pleased with the opening of the
Essequibo Sub-Registry to join already functioning Sub-
Registries in the two other Counties Demerara and
Berbice has hailed the event as an "historical
development" in the delegation and devolution of
authority in the (three) Counties and regions of our

doubtful if any

Particularly in view of
known sharp
differences involving the Board's
management, under current
chairman Teddy Griffith,
and CARICOM's Prime
Ministerial Committee headed
by Grenada's Prime Minister
Keith Mitchell.
Additionally, still to

seemingly out of step with

the 'jumbic' a politics that
could become involved in
the Board's administrative
functions and, worse, the
selection process of a West
Indies team.
Those now emotionally
shouting against "politics in
cricket" may be overlooking a
core factor in the current WICB/
WIPA dispute, namely the
circumstances of thd
sponsorship row that extends to
the origin of the highly divisive
issue of players rights to private
contracts. Even as they shout,
however, they offer no
EVIDENCE in support of their
expressed fears of CARICOM
leaders (who among them?)
wanting to undermine the
sovereignty of the WICB.


References, in Barbados
for example, to the banning
imposed in the 1970s by then
Guyanese President Forbes
Burnham, first against cricket's
legend Garfield Sobers, and later


Gordon Greenidge. from entering
Guyana for having played cricket
in Rhodesia under the white racist
rcgimc of lan Smith, should NOT'
be confused with a legitimate
effort to end the impasse
between WICB and WIPA.
The Community's
leaders, including those
unenthusiastic about any kind of
dialogue with the WICB and
WIPA, are mindful of the grave
implications of the existing
disputes for World Cup 2007 for
which many millions of dollars of
taxpayers' money are being
Burnham's domestic
politics had exposed many
contradictions and pain during his
heavy-handed rule. But the
record would also support the
argument that he was quite
militant and consistent
in opposing the dehumanising
politics of apartheid in South
Africa. And by extension, against
a leading apartheid
collaborator like Rhodesia's Ian

While there continues
to be expedient references
to Burnham's banning
politics against Sobers and
Greenidge, it must also be
noted that the then Prime
Ministers of Jamaica (Michael
Manley) and Trinidad and
Tobago (Eric Williams) were no
less patient with cricketers
who had demonstrated
insensitivity to
the international struggle
against apartheid however
well-intentioned they may
have been in their sporting
contacts with Ian Smith's
The late Frank
Walcott, a legend of the region's
labour movement, and, like
Sobers, one of Barbados'
National Heroes, was so


It was. after all, a
matured mixture of politics
and sports that was to result in
that historic accord at the
1977 Commonwealth Summit in
Gleneagles, Scotland, in support
of the noble struggle against
South Africa's
inhumane apartheid system.
Known as 'The
Gleneagles Agreement', and
unanimously endorsed by all the
Heads of Government, it was to
be subsequently used by
Burnham to justify banning the
English cricketer Robin Jackman
from entering Guyana during
England's 1980/81 tour of the
West Indies he having defiantly

outraged by the cricket icon's
mission to Rhodesia that he
called on him to disqualify
himself from captaining the
West Indies Team.
To his credit, the
illustrious Sobers has reflected
on the reactions to his cricket
journey to Rhodesia and the
apology offered in his
autobiography 'Garry Sobers'.
For those seemingly
bent on confusing today's move
by CARICOM leaders to
promote a resolution to the
recurring conflicts between the
WICB and the WIPA, with
their fears of "politics in
cricket" by references to what
had happened in the decades of
the 1970s and early 1980, they
should back off and give the
proposed 'Good Offices'
initiative a chance to get off the

played cricket in South Africa.
As I see it, those
separate banning of Barbados'
Sobers and Greenidge and
England's Jackman for reasons
widely publicised at the time -
cannot properly be
compared with still feeble
attempts to resolve the WICB/
WIPA dispute.
Especially amid the well-
financed and connected public
relations blitz by
Digicel, designed to obfuscate
critical elements of a deal to
replace Cable and Wireless WI
cricket sponsor for 20 years in
what basically remains in 2005
a big market share battle between
two foreign telecommunication
chairman, Prime Minister Kenny
Anthony of St. Lucia, and Prime

Minister Mitchell are expected
to meet shortly to consult on
selection of three "eminent
Caribbean persons" (read that
to mean non-politicians) to
assist in the resolution of the
disputes involving the WICB
and WIPA. The names are to


be referred to their Heads of
Government colleagues.
Given the fierce

differences that erupted
between Prime Minister
Mitchell and his Barbadian
counterpart, Owen Arthur. at
the St. Lucia Summit during
deliberations on the crisis of
West Indies cricket, it is
advisable that the greatest
possible care be taken in
choosing the trio of "eminent
Caribbean persons". Much is
at stake.
Fortunately, the
region has a reservoir of
talented and respected
nationals to enable
CARICOM's 'Good Offices'
initiative to usher in a new
dawn in relations between
the WICB and the WIPA,
neither of which is without
some blame for today's
crisis. Nor, of course, the
new foreign sponsor on the
cricket block.

What this affair. however.
raises is the absolutely crucial
question of the right of the pub-
lic to know and the duty of the
press to dig and probe to get at
and present the truth as fairly,
accurately and objectively as
they can to the public.
The apparent involvement
of the George Bush White House
in this CIA leak affair betrays
the regrettable tendency of gov-
ernments around the world to try
to package, colour and spin the
news to suit their interests which
sometimes do not coincide with
the right of the people who
elected them to office to know.
The media, in the watchdog
role they find thrust upon them
in democracies, cannot be strang-
ers to the truth if they are to be
faithful to their mandate.
If journalists lose sight of
that sacred duty, they become
nothing more than the jaggabats
that are the bogeymen of the pro-
fession. (See my column last
week for my definition of
The late President Cheddi
Jagan, shortly after taking office
in October 1992, said, "In a gen-
eral way, the democratisation of
our society must be matched by,
and mirrored in, a similar
democratisation of the media. I
do not expect to see in such a
setting a subservient media. Far
from it; the media must be vi-
brant, critical and analytical.
They must also report the views
and opinions of the ordinary
people. They must report the

struggles of the average

and to improve their quality of
The media must be open to

every strata of our people. They
must reach out beyond parties.
politics and policy-makers and
must, in a balanced way, inform,
educate and entertain."
And this was from an inter-
nationally-renowned politician
who knew up close and personal
what it was like to have been shut
out by the media in his own
country for decades. His stan-
dards were high and he has etched
lofty guidelines for those in a
profession he was always close
to in and out of government.
In carrying out their mission
on behalf of the people they
serve, journalists in democracies
rely heavily on sources they
sometimes take years to culti-
vate and develop.
Journalism schools have
special courses on developing
sources and they teach that these
are built on trust and confidenti-
Sources are an indispensable
tool in this profession of-ours
and the classic example for jour-
nalism students is the Watergate
scandal that brought down the
disgraced President Richard
Nixon in Washington.
Mr. Nixon was forced to re-
sign as President after Washing-
ton Post reporters Bob Wood-
ward and Carl Bernstein exposed
the shenanigans of the presi-
dency with the invaluable help
of 'Deep Throat', a well-placed
source whose identity was not
revealed until recently.

In modern journalism, the
resignation of a disgraced presi-
dent triggered by two dedicated .
journalists with the indefati-
gable support of their bosses
has set the standard for profes-
sionals everywhere.
The apparent exposed
dirty linen coming from the
Bush White House last week
evoked memories of the stead-
fast refusal by the Washington
Post to pressure Woodward and
Bernstein to disclose their
sources without whom they
would have been hard put to nail
It was painstaking work for
Woodward, Bernstein and the
Washington Post but it paid off
in the end with the inipeachmen:
of Nixon and a lesson to those
entrusted with power every-
where to watch their behaviour
in high office.
Journalists here too have to
watch closely over their sources,
like I have to watch mine.
There is a vast difference
between the 'Deep Throat' of the
Nixon era who proved his im-
mense worth down through the
years and the suspicious 'source'
of the 'leak' on the CIA agent
that is now emerging from the
Bush White House.
'Deep Throat' was clearly
acting in the interest of the pub-
lic good, determined, at great risk,
to expose criminal wrongdoing
in high places while the other leak
man, it seems, was more intent
on spinning a yam, colouring the
news in the interest of his bosses.
Being a-watchdog isn't easy
and what makes the task even
more difficult for journalists are
those little bones thrown at them

* ,:

by those far more interested in
having toothless poodles than
dedicated bulldogs keeping guard
in the interest of the public. -
In this business, you've got
to have keen noses to sniff out
the truth and a dogged determi-
nation to go after it. Sniff, sniff.
My'sources tell me some
people here have got their
muzzles waiting for the bulldogs
and the little bones for the tooth-
less poodles. (They've got to
have really soft bones for tooth-
less poodles!)
Who are my sources?
You think I'm a jaggabat

IT IS all well and good to
talk about a plan to combat
crime and violence in our so-
ciety. But this is meaningless
if there isn't tangible support
for the agencies responsible.
The PPP/C administration
has always taken the firm
view that there must be a na-
tional response to crime and
security in our country.
But in some sections of the
opposition the necessary co-
operation has not been forth-
coming. In a recent television
programme, a representative
from the main Opposition
PNCR was reluctant to categori-
cally declare that his party will
not be associated with any agent
of crime and violence. While this
hesitation might be due to the
nature of the exchange, we must
never be ambivalent about being
on the moral side on any mat-
ter, particularly against crime
and violence.
When the President of
Guyana launched the National
Drug Strategy Master Plan
and announced an enhanced
anti-crime plan, it provided a

huge window of opportunity
for national participation and
involvement in the response
to overall crime and violence
in our society. An established
mechanism the National
Commission on Law and Or-
der will see all stakeholders
being able to contribute in a
more coordinated way in the

Some three years ago,
Guyana felt the heavy blow of
the changing nature of crime in
the Caribbean. The unprec-
edented violent nature of crime
and the pervasive evidence of an
organised network with sus-
pected political influence
showed that what we and the
region were experiencing and to
an extent still confronting, de-
mand that the entire society
fight back.
The administration has
taken a holistic approach to this

situation: provide nhe appropri-
ate legislative framework,
implement the right policy for
the Law Enforcement Agencies,
allocate huge sums for fighting
crime, and address social weak-
nesses which can contribute to
a fertile crime and violence en-
The security challenges
Guyana face are not unique. But
this should not be used as per-
petual excuses for not getting
the job done. The safety of in-
dividuals and their property can
never be negotiated. The new
and innovative measures pro-
posed here and elsewhere must
be effected with speed and con-
The changing nature of
crime demands that the mode
and method of the response
must be adjusted and upgraded
where necessary. And we
must always heed the warning
signs and go aggressively after
small crimes as there is no dif-
ference between a small or a
big crime; crime is crime. We
must also salute and encourage
the brave men and women

who confront the criminal ele-
ments and strive to make our
communities safe.
There is little use for empty
political rhetoric. More comical
is the suggestion that an oppo-
sition party can have its own
'crime plan' but at the same
time hesitates to play any posi-
tive role in the national re-

in a better position than some

island of Jamaica has been
plagued by an unprecedented

past few years. In 2004, 1,417
Jamaicans were murdered and

By Citizen Kampta Karran

(Continued from last week)

CLASSICAL Marxism advo-
cates that the history of soci-
ety is a history of class
struggle, that is, the contest
between the owners and con-
trollers of the means of pro-
duction and the non-owners
and non-controllers of same.
The ruling classes seek to
maintain the status quo
while the working classes
seek to burst it asunder. The
diametrically opposed inter-
ests of the two major classes
result in antagonistic con-
flicts that will only be re-
solved when the ruling
classes are replaced, often by
violent means, by their major
adversaries. In this tradition,
racial conflicts are seen as
skin deep and as a part of
false consciousness. The sa-
lience and persistence of ra-
cial conflicts are not
recognized but are reduced to
one aspect of class conflict.
Thus Boyd concludes: 'the
operation of racial groups

should be seen as a special
case of the functioning of the
more general concept of class
in social and economic rela-
tions' [1987: 192].
Walter Rodney [1981] ap-
plied class, in the Marxist sense,
in his analysis of the history of
the Guianese working people
for the period 1881 to 1905.
However, he recognized that
race was enough of a contradic-
tion in nineteenth-century
Guiana to be treated indepen-
dently. He was following in the
path of another independent
Caribbean Marxist, C. L. R.
James, who reasoned that:
'The race question is sub-
sidiary to the class question in
politics and to think of imperi-
alism in terms of race is disas-
trous. But to reflect the racial
factor as merely incidental is an
error, no less grave than to make
it fundamental' [see Thomas
2000: 21].
Perhaps, scholars like
Rodney and James were willing
to shift from the orthodox Marx-
ist position followed by Boyd
because they recognized the his-
torical coincidences of race and

class in Caribbean societies. In
the Caribbean during slavery the
class that owned the means of
production was white and the
slaves were not. With the abo-
lition of slavery, this trend was
continued. The owners of the
plantations were white; those
who controlled the state ma-
chinery were white while those
who worked on the plantations
were mainly non-whites of In-
dian and African extractions.
During the period of
indentureship, the working
classes were composed mainly
of African and Indian workers.
They formed the base of the
plantation hierarchy. However,
they seldom recognized their
common working class interests
and very often they found
themselves in opposition to each
other. It appeared that one
group always supported the
ruling class when it was con-
fronted by the other group. In-
stead of conceding this reality
as an inability of the Marxist
class analysis, orthodox Marx-
ists like Callinicos turned to
Karl Marx's letter of 9th April
1870 to Meyer and Vogt. In this

letter, Karl Marx showed that
the ranks of British working
class were divided into two hos-
tile camps, the English proletar-
ians and the Irish proletarians.
Karl Marx argued that this di-
vision '...is the secret by which
the capitalist class maintains its
power. And that class is fully
aware of it' [Callinicos 1998:
35]. Applied to the Caribbean,
this would imply that the divi-
sions between the African and
Indian working classes were
caused by the conspiracy of the
white ruling classes and their
practice of divide and rule.
One of the principle tenets
of Marxism is the argument that
the ruling ideas of any period
are the ideas of the ruling class.
One component of the ruling
ideas in the West Indies during
the period under consideration
was that the white race was su-
perior to the non-white races. In

- 1905

the West Indies, this idea took
hold in the oral tradition of sev-
enteenth-century Barbados and
was crystallised in print in eigh-
teenth-century Britain '... as
the ideology of the plantocracy,
the class of sugar planters and
slave merchants that dominated
England's Caribbean colonies'
[Fryer 1984: 134]. In keeping
with this worldview, David
Hume, the eighteenth-century
enlightenment philosopher, de-
clared 'I am apt to suspect the
Negroes, and in general all other
species of men (for there are
four or five different kinds), to
be naturally inferior to the
whites' [1985: 629-301. During
the period under examination,
this racist ideology not only sur-
vived, but was supported by the
pseudo-scientific biology of
races drawn from a distorted
version of Darwin's theory of
natural selection. When
stripped of all its finery, this
idea would have us believe that
the white races were equipped
to govern the Asians and the Af-

ricans, and that in so doing the
Europeans were operating in the
best interest of these two racial
groups. The white man was thus
burdened with the mission of
civilising the rest of humanity.
Rudyard Kipling's poem 'The
White Man's Burden' captures
this orientation perfectly.
Take up the White Man's
burden -
Send forth the best ye breed

Go bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives'
To wait in heavy harness
On fluttered folk and wild

servants and ex-slaves, toiling
under inhumane plantation con-
ditions in Guiana, did not sub-
scribe to the view that the

white ruling classes had their in-
terest at heart. Their many acts
of protest bear ample testimony-
to their disbelief. However, es-
pecially the Africans and the
Mulattoes recognized the neces-
sity to adopt as much as pos-"
sible the culture of the dominant
group. One contemporary of the
period observed that after eman-
cipation 'the Negroes once as-
sumed as much as was possible.
the manners of the white man'.
[Brumell 1852: 64]. Similarly,'
the Portuguese and the Chinese,
did likewise and later so did the
East Indians.
Based on this observation
and making use of the Weberiahn
class notion of wealth, status
and power, scholars like R. T.
Smith took issue with the plu-

ral thesis. He claimed that the
Guianese society began to inte-
grate by sharing aspects of Eu-
ropean culture which were up-
held to be superior to their own.
Everything in the society was
judged in comparison with Eu-
ropean values. This process, re-
ferred to as creolisation, in-
volved the acculturation of the
subordinated groups to the
dominant culture, it also served
to call attention to differences
among the various racial groups.
Braithwaite [1960] introduced
the; concept of incomplete
creolisation which meant that
the rate of creolisation varied
among the various groups. In
the case of Guiana, the Africans
were more creolised than the In-
By adopting and participat-
ing in the various aspects of the
dominant culture, members of

the African, Mulatto, Portu-
guese, Chinese and Indian races
were able to acquire the skills,
education, language, religion,
property and other resources
that enabled them to climb the
social ladder. During slavery and
the immediate post-emancipa-
tion period, race .and class con-
verged. The upper and middle
classes were white and the
lower classes were non-white.
However, the processes de-
scribed above led to the modifi-
cation of this rigid race/class
structure. For example, through
their domination of the retail
trade, the former indentured
Portuguese joined the middle
class. The ex-slaves became law-
yers, doctors, postmasters, po-
licemen and teachers and, hence,
elevated themselves from the
lower classes. By the dawn of
the 20th Century, East Indians

began to join the ranks of the
propertied, professional and
small business classes.
While classical Marxism in-
sists that one's class position is
determined by one's location in
the production process and by
extension one's relationship to
the means of production, the
Weberian concept of class fo-
cuses on market relations and
on issues dealing with wealth,
status and power. The position
adopted by R. T. Smith and
Braithwaite would be more
closely aligned to the Weberian
perspective than that of Marx-
ist. It is in this former sense that
the present study would use
It is important to note that
while a person could alter his/
her class position through social
mobility it is extremely difficult,
if not impossible, to change his/
her race. In nineteenth-century
Guiana, individuals and groups
would be constantly reminded
of their race not only because it
was ingrained in the social
structure of the society but be-
cause of its physicality and its
'recognisability'. Members of a
racial group carry with them the
physical print of the racial cat-
egory to which they were as-
signed wherever they go and
however high they may climb.
There are certain other fea-
tures that are common to the
plantation society and during
the period under consideration
British Guiana displayed these
features also. Wolf and Mintz
[1957] presented the conditions
that were necessary to initiate
the plantation system and those
that were necessary for its con-
tinuity. The "initiating condi-
tions" include:
sufficient liquid capital to
secure the other factors of pro-
duction (e.g. land, labour, fixed
capital, etc.),
a large and fertile acreage
of land that would facilitate
large scale production and allow
for possible expansion,
a large supply of cheap
labour to allow for the
maximisation of profit,
appropriate technological
sophistication that is suitable
for large-scale exploitation and

for the transportation of labour,
machinery, raw materials and
produce and finished consumer
political and legal power
that would allow for: the distri-
bution of profit and also for the
maintenance of a disciplined
work force.
However, the success of the
enterprise depended on certain
conditions that would make
"continued operation" feasible.
These include:
a sustainable supply of
capital which the plantation
must be able to utilise for the
enhancement of its production
and productivity capabilities, ,
an industrial market that
is large enough to buy the
plantation's produce at a
favourable price,
the availability of appro-
priate space to allow for physi-
cal expansion,
the utilisation of improved
technology to facilitate more ef-
ficient resource exploitation and
also to allow for the realisation
of higher levels of profitability,
an oversupply of labour
that would allow for the regula-
tion of wages to the advantage
of the plantocracy,
a rigid control of the
labour force which includes the
use of state and military power
to repress/even the legitimate
claims and aspirations of the
working classes.
Lloyd Best [1968] observed
that the plantation is structur-
ally part of an "overseas
economy." It is on the periph-
ery of the emerging capitalist
world system and one of its
primary functions is to service
the needs of the metropolitan
mother country which provides
initiative, capital, technical and
managerial skills, markets and
other services. The nineteenth-
century British economist, John
Stuart Mill, described the West
Indies as a place '... where En-
gland finds it convenient to
carry on the production of
sugar, coffee and a few other
tropical cbmmodities'\[see
Greaves 1959: 16]. Much of the
wealth generated from the plan-
tation did not remain there but
served to promote.

plantations lived on their plan-
tations in Guiana but by the
1830s the owners returned to
Britain whence they employed
attorneys, managers and over-
seers to administer the affairs of
the plantation on their behalf.

lords" used the wealth gained
from the plantations to pur-
chase estates and to acquire
peerages in Britain. They also
began to invest in shipping,
procurement of supplies and
other enterprises directly or in-
directly linked to sugar. This ac-
tion contributed to Britain's
capitalistic designs and at the
same time deepened the depen-
dency of the plantation system
on the metropolitan centre. It
also favourably positioned the
absentee planter class now liv-
ing in Britain to lobby, politi-
cally, commercially and other-
wise, in the interest of their plan-
tations in Guiana and other parts
of the British West Indies.
Not withstanding this de-
pendence on and asymmetri-
cal relationship with the
metropolitan centre, R. T.
Smith [1967] and later
George Beckford [1972] em-
ployed Erving Goffman's
[1961] "total institution" in
an effort to place the planta-
tion society in another theo-
retical framework. In this re-
gard, R. T. Smith saw the
plantation as well-defined in
terms of social and physical
boundaries and a hierarchical
structure that circumscribed
the relationship of the vari-
ous groups of which it was
composed. The workers were
seen as inmates who were
managed by a small supervi-
sory staff. The power rela-
tions, roles, expectations, etc.
were clearly defined. Fur-
ther, those who were brought
into the plantation arrived as
socially formed human be-
ings. However, they were
forced to re-socialise and in
the process, the old self had
to die so that a new identity
could be imposed. Beckford
added that the plantation is a
total economic and social in-
stitution "because it is om-
nipotent and omnipresent in
the lives of those living
within its confines" [1972:
55]. (to be continued next

SE E reS a S e'



By Jeffrey D. Sachs

WE HAVE the opportunity in
the coming decade to cut
world poverty by half.
Billions more people
could enjoy the fruits of the
global economy, and tens of
millions of lives could be saved.
The practical solutions
exist. The political framework
is established. And for the first
time, the cost is utterly
affordable. Whatever one's
motivation for combating
extreme poverty -human
rights, religious values, security,
fiscal prudence, ideology -
the solutions are the same. All
that is needed is action.
The United Nations
Millennium Project is an
independent advisory body
commissioned by Secretary-
General Kofi Annan to develop
a global plan for achieving the
Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs) by 2015. If the
world achieves these Goals,
more than 500 million people
will be lifted out of poverty
and 250 million will no longer
suffer from hunger, while 30
million children and two million
mothers who might reasonably
have been expected to die will
be saved.
; The U.N. Millennium
Project presented its report,
Investing in Development: A
Practical Plan to Achieve the
Millennium Development
Goals, to the Secretary-General
in January 2005. Based on the
work. of a blue-ribbon team of
265 of the world's leading
development experts, their

findings present the most
comprehensive strategy ever
put forward for combating
global poverty, hunger and
The release of the
report is the first in a series of
major global initiatives on the
MDGs in 2005, culminating in
a high-level summit of the
General Assembly in
September, representing an
historic chance for making the
global policy breakthrough
needed to help the poorest
countries achieve the Goals. The
report also provides a detailed
blueprint for making this

enough to meet the MDG
targets by 2015. To meet this
deadline, we recommend that all

place by 2006, and where

Papers (PRSPs) already exist
They should be aligned with the
The MDG-based
Poverty Reduction Strategies
should anchor the scaling up of
public investments, capacity-
building, domestic resource
mobilisation and official
development assistance (ODA).
They should also provide a

framework for strengthening
governance, promoting human
rights, engaging civil society and
promoting the private sector.
They should be based on an
assessment of investments and
policies needed to reach the
MDGs by 2015. These
strategies should spell out the
detailed national investments,
policies and budgets for the fiext
three to five years, with
investments focusing on rural
and urban productivity,
education, gender equality, water
and sanitation, environmental
sustainability, science and
technology, innovation and
Policies that focus on women's
and girls' health, including
reproductive health, as well as
on education outcomes, access
to economic and political
opportunities, right to control
assets and freedom from

In order for these
strategies to be effective,
countries must. promote
mechanisms for transparent and
decentralised governance; include
operational strategies for scale-
up, such as training and retaining
skilled workers; involve civil
society organizations in decision-
making and service delivery;
provide resources for monitoring
and evaluation; outline private-
sector promotion and income-
generation strategies for poor
people; and tailor these
strategies, as appropriate, to the
special needs of landlocked,
small island developing, least

developed and fragile States.
Strategies should aim
to understand the resource
implications of their
implementation, including
mobilisation of increased
domestic resources by up to
four percentage points of the
gross national product (GNP)
by 2015, calculations of ODA
needed, and description of an
"exit strategy" to end aid
dependency that is appropriate
to the country's situation.
These strategies should be
devised in transparent and
inclusive processes, working
closely with civil society
organizations, the private sector
and international partners.
Civil society
organizations should contribute
actively to designing policies,
delivering .services and
monitoring progress, while the
private-sector firms and
organizations should contribute
actively to policy design,
transparency initiatives and,
where appropriate, public-
private partnerships.
International donors should
identify at least a dozen MDG-
"fast-track" countries for a
rapid scale-up of ODA in 2005,
Srecognising that many countries
are already in a position for a
massive scale-up on the basis
of good governance and
absorptive capacity.
Developed and developing
countries should jointly

THE Guyana Community Based Rehabilita-
tion Programme (GCBRP) yesterday opened
its 13th annual National Conference with a
focus on the vision and objectives of their
five-year Draft Strategic Plan.

The two-day conference be-
ing held under the theme 'Dis-
ability: A New Vision, A New
Era', at the Critchlow Labour
College, Woolford Avenue, will
conclude today.
The organisation seeks to be
a strong, dynamic, innovative
and well recognized one that in-
volves and enables persons with
disabilities, their family and com-
munities to realise their full po-
tential and include them in the
social, economic, political and
cultural aspects of Guyanese so-
The organisation intends to
mobilise action in communities
through a network of capable
and committed volunteers and
supporters to work with the rel-
evant agencies of society to posi-
tively influence perceptions, at-
titudes and policies to create an
enabling environment for mean-
ingful participation of persons
with disabilities.
One of their strategic objec-
tives is for children to have ac-
cess to education at all levels. To
achieve this, the organisation
hopes to influence government
policy regarding education for
children with disabilities.

Secondly, they intend to
work with mainstream and spe-
cial needs educational institutions
to enable children with disabili-
ties to have equal access to all
levels. of education.
The organisation's other im-
portant objective is to increase
awareness and positively influ-
ence members of society to fa-
cilitate the integration of persons
with disabilities into the main-
stream of Guyanese society.
It intends to achieve this by
positively influencing govern-
ment and other policy decision-
makers to secure equal rights,
opportunities and services for
disabled persons.
In addition, it will seek to
empower persons with disabili-
ties to further improve their con-
fidence and enable them to be-
come their own advocates.
Delivering the feature ad-
dress and declaring the confer-
ence open was Secretary General
of the Guyana Commission for
United Nations Educational, Sci-
entific and Cultiral Organisation
(UNESCO) Ms. Dawn
According to her, disabled
persons are also entitled to a

When the Sunday Chronicle
-visited the market yesterday,
many of the business operators
were on the lookout for suspi-
cious activity, saying that they
have to effect their own meth-
ods of safeguarding their liveli-
hood, since the additional pro-
tection promised by the Mayor
and City Council early last
week, has not yet been realized..
The owner of Dhanpaul's
Jewellery one'of the vandalised
stores says he has not received
any indication as to whether he will
be reimbursed for his losses. Like
so many others in the market, he
emphasised that the security mea-
sures in place there are not enough
to prevent a second burglary.
The young man, who claims
to have lost about $40M in the
robbery, added that he is not sat-
isfied with the Police response

eral members of the public. He
says that although these clues
seem vital, they appear to be ig-
nored or dismissed by the law
enforcement authorities.
Roopnaraine, the owner of a
clothing stall located a stone's
throw from the jewellery estab-
lishment, also expressed his ap-
prehension towards returning to
business in the market with a
noticeable presence of increased

He says that although there
seems to be a few more mem-
bers of the City Constabulary
on patrol in the shopping area,
the promised beefing-up of the
security detail is still to be seen.
SAccording to Roopnaraine,
the inferior locks on the market
gates, which he says adds to the
vulnerability of the enclosed
businesses, have not been re-
One stall owner even attrib-
uted a decrease in sales to the re-
cent exposure of the market's
security failures.
"People are not coming like
before. On Saturday, this place
is usually packed," she said.
The Mayor and City Coun-
cil (M&CC) of Georgetown had
earlier promised to provide the
market with additional security,
including officers from a private
firm. However, the vendors say
they have only seen a slight im-
provement in the level of secu-
Superintendent of the Con-
stabulary, Mr. Andrew Foo had
said that 22 constables would be
posted at the location. He had
made that announcement during
a meeting with some of the stall
holders last week.

dors had complained that the
constables only added'to their

The Last Time
If I knew it would be 1he, last time that I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more t'lq ii, and pray the Lord your soul to keep.
If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for just one more.
If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would videotape each action and word So I could play it back each.day
If I knew it would be the last time I could spare an extra minute or two,
To stop and say "I love you" Instead of assuming you KNOW I do.
If I knew it would be the last time I would be I'.: to share your day...
Nell, I'm sure _u'ii have so many more, so I can just let this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight,
and we ai,; get a second chance to make everything right.
There will always be another day to-say our "I love you's".
And certainly -neie'.sanother chance To say' ".n.Ilhinn I can do?"
But just in case I nii'ght be wrong, and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget....
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike.
and today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved ones tight.
So, if you're waiting for tomorrow, Why not do it today?.
For if tomorrow never comes,
[you'll surely regret the day. That you didn't -. ii- il extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss. And you were too busy to grant someone,
.hat turned dut to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close toda,
and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them
nid ilat you'll -i..i ~i hold them dear. Take :Irni- to say, I ri sorry," "Please forgive m.,
"Thank you," or "It's ok." And ii i:,in r.:.. never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.You've gone away,
but in our hearts... You're here to stay.
And in our heart we find peace nrio,'. In you're in a better place.

Chin inflicts major upset over Fernandes

... Shuffler, King to clash in Ladies' final

By Isaiah Chappelle

THE script for the Ladies' final remains the same as last year
but that of the Men's final changed dramatically when Julian
Chin inflicted a major upset in Friday night's semifinals in
the GT&T's National senior squash championship at
Georgetown Club.
Chin ousted runner-up for the past three years, Robert
Fernandes, in a gruelling four-game match that required Ferandes
to change a racquet and Chin eventually advanced to his first final
9-2, 7-9, 9-6, 9-6.
In the other Men's semifinal, reigning champion Shawn
Badrinath easily turned back a lively challenge from National Un-
der-17 and Under-19 champion Kristian Jeffrey 9-2, 9-1, 9-1, the
score lines belying the efforts of the 16-year-old.
On the distaff side, reigning champion Kathy Shuffler held off a strong

challenge from 17-year-old Chantelle Fernandes, eventually reaching the
final 9-3, 7-9, 9-4, 3-9, 9-6 to again clash with her niece Andrea King who
disposed of Tiffany Solomon 9-5, 9-5, 4-9, 9-5.
But all the action was in the match with Chin and Fernandes as
a seemingly fitter Chin triumphed in the first game, racing to 6-1,
after a 1-1 tie after six side-outs before the first points were regis-
Before the Fernandes could muster his second point, there were
five side-outs then Chin wrapped up the game.
The second game was one of strokes and counter-strokes, at-
tacks and counter-attacks, with long rallies, one going as many as
48 strokes. Fernandes registered the first point, Chin equalising and
going ahead. Fernandes equalised and reached 4-2, briefly losing the
serve at 2-2.
Chin broke the serve, lost it, regained it and raced to 5-4.
Fernandes equalised, but Chin won back the serve and reached 7-6.

Fernandes eventually wrapped up the game, losingthe serve twice
before levelling the match.
Fernandes used his first serve in the following match to regis-

First drag-racing meet revs

off at South Dakota

THE first drag-racing meet revs
off at the South Dakota Circuit,
with varying categories of races
scheduled for the day's
programme from 12:00 h.
Some the seasoned racers
will be matching machines
against enthusiastic new drivers,
in straight runs.
Racing ace Mark Vieira will
be in action, along with cham-
pions from the last Dexterity
meet at the National Park.
There will be races for stan-
dard cars, minibuses, 4x4s, rac-
ing cars and motor cycles, with
special events for ladies.

The race starts before the
meet because the first 40 per-
sons to register will be in the
races, thus competitors will
have to be at the circuit from
10:00 h to enter. Registration
closes at noon.
Meet coordinator Ray
Rahaman told Chronicle Sport
that many entries were expected
because persons now had a
chance to show off the power
and acceleration of their ma-
chines in straight runs.
The activity is the Guyana
Motor Racing & Sports Club
(GMR&SC) attempt to take

drag racing-from the streets, an
illegal and dangerous pastime,
and put those very persons in
organised match-ups.
Competitors will be in_safe
racing conditions, because rules
will be enforced.like wearing
seat belts and helmets.
Racers, therefore, just
have to concentrate on pow-
ering their vehicles to the
finish line, to eliminate their
opponent and advance to the
next round. Races will be
done by the elimination pro-
cess, leading to a final show-

A RE you trying to get your life together on the
run? Last week, I gave you the first part of bril
liant ways to be your best. This week, I want
to give more of my favourite tips and hopefully a shot
of inspiration on how to get motivated, be happy, feel

inspired and take control.

One of the easiest ways to
get things done efficiently and
enjoyable is to start to think dif-
ferently about any task that
you are doing. Think of a job
that needs doing now how do
you feel? Are you delighted and
energised by the prospect or do
you feel pressurised and
stressed? Can you feel your en-
ergy levels going up or going
It's not hard to see that the
more delighted you feel to do

your goals. Get passionate
about them, keep thinking how
wonderful, they are, adore the
prospect of achieving them, and
the rest is easy.

Lesson to learn: Love
your goals and enliven
your energy.

Significant changes always
involve risk-taking and if you
are looking for a major change
in lifestyle, then you must be
prepared to take a leap in faith.
This is how you do it:
You must be committed;
there can be no half-measures.
If you think you might like a

you will be able to accomplish
it in a relaxed, focused and effi-
cient way. Notice what hap-
pens when you say to yourself,
'I've got td do this' or 'I should
do that' or 'I must do the other'.
Your energy drops through the
floor and you feel reluctant and
unwilling to get going. This is
when you can come up with all
those reasons not to do some-
thing (too.busy, too tired, no
Now, if you turn your atti-
tude around and say to yourself,

business and it is fear of taking
risks that has held you back un-

you will look a fool, or that oth-
ers might reject you, or that
you are bound to fail. You need

IR4d// k.s

to know that everyone who has
ever done anything meaningful
in their lives has had to face and
overcome their own inhibiting
demons. The most amazing
things happen when you decide
to believe in yourself. Others
start to demonstrate their belief
in you. As soon as you are pre-
pared to move that one step
forward, invisible forces will
give you the strength to make a
quantum leap. Try it!

Lesson to learn: Be-
lieve in yourself and
take that leap.

You are unique. There is no
such thing as a normal or aver-
age size or type of person. Ev-
eryone is absolutely special and
individual. When we recognize
our uniqueness, we also
recognize our aloneness. Some-
times our aloneness can be very
scary. We may feel lonely be-
cause no one can ever really un-
derstand how we feel and al-
ways be there for us. It is true
that no one will ever know the
inner you. You are the only per-
son who can know yourself.
No one else can be inside you.
And would you really want
anyone to know everything
about you?
The idea of our aloneness
carries a wonderful quality of
freedom. We can release our ex-
pectations of other people to
know all about us and we can

stop feeling guilt abour
not always being there
for others.
Frightening or freeing
- your alonene's can be
either of those thing'.
Choose freedom, choose
to celebrate your
aloneness. Repeat the fol-
lowing affirmation. \ which
will help you to accept
and enjoy the ine,. itabil-
ity of feeling alone

Affirmation: I am
sitting on top of
the world and I
belong to
nobody and
nobody belongs
to me.

As you say this
affirmation, use our
imagination to
visualise yourself at
the top of the world,
feeling free. Feel the
freedom that cones
with these words

Lesson to learn:
When we are
truly free to be
ourselves all our
improve and we
feel wonderful.

ing at an inter-secuon and one

Plaintiff applied for continuation of

injunctive order until end of action

Juge- r efus ed apl cation* C C -fudntig ocos etwenpatis

ALLOWING a five-
day hearing in
Chambers in 1953
of an application for
the continuation of an in-
junctive ex parte order until
a land dispute was deter-
mined, Justice Kenneth
Stoby rejected the applica-
tion after-finding that there
was nothing to choose be-
tween the applicant
Carvalhal and the defendant
At the hearing, Mr. B.O.
Adams, S.C.. appeared for the
plaintiff while Mr. H.C.
Humphrys,, Q.C., represented
the defendant.
The facts disclosed that the
plaintiff obtained an interim in-
junction ex parte and applied, by
way of summons, to continue
the injunction until the determi-
nation of the action.
It was contended for the de-
fendant that the'interim order
should not continue as he was
the holder of the legal title to
the land.
The Judge noted that in the
affidavits there was so much
doubt as to who had the legal

right to the land in dispute that
the application must be refused.
The principles on which in-
terlocutory injunctions were
made were discussed.
In his judgment, Justice
Stoby said that the matter be-
fore the Court, was an applica-
tion by way of summons for an
interlocutory injunction to con-
tinue the interim order by way
of an injunction granted on the
26th day of February, 1953.
Plaintiff's case on the affi-
davits was that she was one of
the owners of a piece of land
held under lease in 1927 and she
became the sole owner in 1933;
that in 1933 she borrowed some
money from C. R. Jacob and the
land was transferred to him to
be held in trust for her until the
money was repaid: that in 1935.
her husband was called upon to
repay the money due to Mr.
Jacob and that as he was unable
to do so, a loan was obtained
from the defendant. Mr. Jacob
repaid and the land was trans-
ferred to the defendant until the
money borrowed had been re-
The defendant's case on the
affidavit is that he purchased the
land from Mr. Jacob, that he

was in occupation since 1935;
that he was grazing his cattle on
the land and that the only asso-
ciation which the plaintiff had
with the land is that her hus-
band was employed to look af-
ter his cattle.
Mr. Humphrys' submission
was that the defendant was the
holder of a legal title and that
there was no evidence to show
that the defendant is a trustee
other than the affidavits of
plaintiff, her relatives and one
Gobind admittedly her agent,
and that if an injunction was
not granted, there would be no

trespass and that all that is nec-
essary for her to show is that
she is entitled to an injunction.
If an injunction was not granted
there would be irreparable dam-
Justice Stoby said that he
did not understand Mr.
Humphrys' submission to
mean that the Court cannot
grant an interlocutory in-
junction against a person
who holds the legal title. If
that was his submission, it
certainly is not the law. "His
argument as I understand it
is that since one of the func-
tions of the Court in its eq-
uitable jurisdiction is to pro-
tect legal rights to property

rge Barclay
from irreparable damage or
at least from serious damage
pending litigation, the Court
must first determine who
prima facie has the legal
right to the property." the
Judge said.
By legal right is not meant
only legal title but includes a
trustee who is in possession of
the trust property. For if it is
clear that the defendant is a
trustee then it is the cestuis que
trust who has the legal right al-
though not the title.
Justice Stoby said that he
must turn therefore to the affi-
davits to see whether the plain-

tiff was able to show a fair
prima facie case in support of
the title she asserts always
bearing in mind that all that is
necessary was for her to show
that she had a fair question to
raise in support of the legal
right she asserts.
The documentary evidence,
Justice Stoby said, discloses no
trust and since normally by the
provisions of the Civil Law of
British Guiana Ordinance,
Chapter 7, the trust must be in
writing, one has to consider
without deciding the issue
whether the affidavits disclose
enough to bring this trust within
the exceptions with regard to
writing, e.g..fraud or creation of
trust by the operation of law or
as sometimes called a resulting
Continuing his judgment,
Justice Stoby had added: "At
the moment, but- without decid-
ing the point. I am inclined to
think that if it is satisfactorily
proved that the defendant
agreed to hold the property in
trust, it would be a fraud to
permit him to keep the prop-
erty merely because there is no
writing but the difficulty is.that
it is by no means clear from the
affidavits that she has a fair
prima facie case.
"She says she was in pos-
session since 1927, yet she ad-
mits defendant's cattle grazed
on the land since 1935.
"She says she planted rice

regularly since 1927 and yet she
admits his possession in the
sense that his cattle were on the
land. She says her machinery

I I' L



by Petamber Persaud
ERIC Walrond was the first
Guyanese to publish a collec-
tion of short stories. That
book, 'Tropic Death', 1926,
was, however, published in
the USA where the author
had settled for a short while.
And the Harlem Renaissance
comprising writers and artists
like Marcus Garvey, Claude
McKay, Langston Hughes,
Arna Bontemps, Zora Neale
Hurston, W.E. B. Du Bois and
others assimilated the book
and its author, catapulting
both to fame. Both the book
and its author were and still
are the focus of numerous
studies of which is the highly
regarded, 'Winds Can Wake
up the Dead: An Eric Walrond
Reader' by Louis J.
'Tropic Death' was valued
alongside 'The Quest of the Sil-
ver Fleece' by W. E. B. Du
Bois, 'The Autobiography of an
Ex-Colored Man' by James W.
Johnson and 'Harlem Shadow'
by Claude McKay.
Walrond attained the dis-
tinction of the first Guyanese to
publish a substantial book of
-short fiction because his no-
madic lifestyle severed him
from a British literary tradition
which, at the time, privileged
the novel over the short fiction;
the American literary conven-
tion had no such hang-ups.
Walrond entered the USA
on June 30, 1918, part of a mass
migration movement that was
attracting thousands of West In-
dians. Here he lived for ten
years; studied at Columbia Uni-
versity and The City College of
New York, played a major role

in the Harlem Renaissance, en-
countering the vilest forms of
class and racial prejudice, trig-
gering his most productive lit-
erary years.
Due to unfair employment
practices, it took a long while to
get his pen moving, but when it
fell into the rut, Walrond was
able to influence schools of
thoughts and bodies of move-
ments against the inhumanity to
man. He wrote numerous stories
and essays to periodicals like
the 'Opportunity', 'Smart Set',
'Vanity', 'Independent' and
His short stories like 'On
Being Black', 'On Being Do-
mestic' and 'The Stone Re-
bounds' were like fodder to
Black consciousness at the time.
Later, he was entrusted a
greater role in fashioning and
changing public attitude when
he was made editor to Marcus
Garvey's 'Negro World'.
Walrond also edited Charles S.
Johnson's 'Opportunity' and
'The Brooklyn and Long Island
Walrond's life was one of
paradoxes engendered by his
writings. He gravitated to the
editorship of 'New World' af-
ter he won a fiction contest
sponsored by Marcus
Garvey's Universal Negro Im-
provement Association (U. N.
I. A.) for his piece, 'A
Senator's Memoirs'. Later,
he fell from grace when he
penned, 'Imperator
Africanus, Marcus Garvey:
Menace or Promise?'
But for all of this,
Walrond's death in 1966 on a
.London street from a heart at-
tack attracted little attention in
the USA, Barbados, Panama, or

in Guyana.
Eric Derwent Walrond was
bornon December 18, 1898 in
Georgetown, capital city of
Guyana, where he spent his
first eight years. His father was
Guyanese and his mother, Ruth,
A year after the devastating
1905 fire of Georgetown, and
with his father gone to work on
the Panama Canal, the remain-
der of the family moved to Bar-
bados. Here, young Walrond at-
tended the St. Stephen's Boy's
School in Black Rock, 'a dinky
backward village' outside
Bridgetown. But the island was
just an oasis to this family in an
economically troubled Carib-
After no contact from the
father and with employment
opportunities aplenty digging
the canal, the family moved to
Panama in 1911. Failing to find
the head of the family, they
settled in Colon where Eric
Walrond completed his public
schooling and went on to be
trained as a secretary and a ste-
nographer. His first job was as
a clerk at the Health Department
of the Canal Commission. From
1916 to 1918, he pursued a ca-
reer in journalism, working as a
general reporter, court reporter
and sport journalist on the
prestigious on the Panama Star
- Herald. Around this time, sto-
ries of a better life in America
fascinated him, influencing yet
another migration.
All of these movements and
experiences came out in his first

this landmark collection was the
themes of migration, discrimina-
tion and prejudices, alienation
and identity, poverty and suf-
fering are still current in
Guyanese and Caribbean litera-
Walrond was a one-book
wonder. Although he gained a
Guggenheim fellowship to pro-
duce certain work, although the
expectation was high for him to
write the 'Great Negro Book',
it is still a mystery why he
failed to deliver any substantial
body of work in the. remainder
of his days, amounting to some
forty years.
And it was not from lack of

trying. Marvel Cooke, a female
admirer of Walrond,. disclosed
how their friendship suffered
when he went to Jamaica for six
months to concentrate on his
book; she said he extended his
stay for another six months
within which time he disap-
peared from the public's eye
ending up in Britain.

More a mystery was in
that final period of his life he
reconciled with Marcus
Garvey, was in contact with
Paul Robeson, re-established
ties with his British roots
(novel writing tradition) and
dwelled in the capital of
books, yet nothing came from
his pen.

"Day na clean yet and the
blasted place gets hot already".
The fireside was already lit
with sun-dried cruda wood from
the mangrove swamp along the
Corentyne River. The white rice
from Lalbeharry's one-plot rice
field was boiling and the cut
string beans prepared from the
night before were sizzling.
Drupatie added the curry masala
and the entire neighbourhood
immediately smelled like South
India. "Let me see who curry
will smell best". She mixed the
curry masala with the wooden
spoon and she noticed from her
stilted one bedroom house
through the space in the walls
directly above the fireside that
other housewives were also
cooking. This wasn't new or
surprising because each house-
wife got up about the same time
as Drupatie.
"Dem get up kind a late and
dem must have drink and dance
heavy last night," Drupatie con-
Some men were also up
sharpening their machetes. They
were preparing to go to work to
cut the sugar cane in the back
dam. But Lalbeharry was still
sleeping. He had gone out the
night before with Franklin and
Jaikarran to drink "bush rum"
underneath Poltoo's house.
Drupatie would quarrel that the
police someday "gonna bangle
he and he would go jail for six
months." A couple of weeks ago,
Lalbeharry drank so much "bush
rum" that he did not get up in
time to catch the truck to go to
work. Drupatie was so mad at

Lalbeharry that she packed her
clothes and went to live with
her parents for three weeks. Af-
ter a week had passed and
Drupatie did not return,
Lalbeharry decided to go and
bring Drupatie home. On his
way to Drupatie's parents,
Lalbeharry stopped at the rum
shop to have a few drinks to
build up his courage, but
Lalbeharry drank .ajlittle too
much. He staggered put of the
rum shop at twilight and under
the tamarind tree near
Drupatie's parents' house began
to sing:
0 my darlin' Drupatie,
roses are red,
violets are blue,
I miss you.
Lalbeharry repeated this
song for hours until he fell
asleep under the tamarind tree.
He had to eventually take the
village peacemaker, Labie, to
Drupatie's parents and beg for
her to come home.
Suddenly, Drupatie heard
a voice coming from the room
of her house. "Ah wa a go on
in dey." Drupatie continued
to feed the fire, her eyes were
half opened and her head
slanted over her right
shoulder away from the
direct smoke coming out
from under the pots. She
lifted a couple of grains of

spoon and ground them
between her thumb and index

murmured. Again, there was

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to you all. Have an interest at all
times in what you have to study for your
examination ahead. One way to master
your study is to take a lively interest in the
subject areas outside of your study hours.
Keep the study groups intact!

a) If the top number of a fraction is less than its
bottom number, the fraction is called a proper
fraction. Thus, 5/8; 2/7; 4/9 are all proper fractions.
A proper fraction has a value less than 1.
The whole in each case is 8/8; 7/7; 9/9.

b) If the top number of a fraction is greater than
its bottom number, then the fraction is called an
improper fraction. Thus 3/2; 7/4; 9/5 are all im-
proper fractions.
The improper fraction is called the top heavy
fraction. It is always carrying a higher number
as its upper number.
Every top heavy fraction can be written or ex-
pressed as a whole number and a proper frac-
tion. These are sometimes called mixed num-
bers. Thus 1 ;2 1 %; and 1 4/5 are all mixed

c) In order to change or convert a top heavy frac-
tion to a mixed number what is usually done is
to divide the top number by the bottom number.
When you divide the top number by the bottom
number in a vulgar fraction, you will see how they
carry a value of more than 1.
The remainder becomes the top number in the
fractional part of the mixed number.
d) To change a mixed number into an improper
fraction (or top heavy fraction), you need to mul-
tiply the whole number by the bottom number of
the fractional part and then add the numerator
of the fraction fractional part. This sum then be-
comes the top number of the improper fraction.
Its bottom number is the same as the bottom
number of the fractional part of the mixed num-

Solution: Improper fractions as mixed num-
1. 9/7 = 1 2/7
2. 9/4 = 2 %
3. 37/12 = 3 1/12
4. 72/11 = 66/11
5. 86/9 = 9 5/9

Solution: Mixed numbers as improper frac-
1.2 6/7 = 20/7
2. 5 7/9 = 52/9
3.8%= 35/4
4.7 2/11 = 79/11
5.4 7/12 = 55/12


Adding Fractions, Different Denominators

We have decided to do more on fractions be-
fore going on to decimals. So, here we are.

Sandra has a paper route. She delivers 1/5 of
her newspaper on Sophie Drive and 2/3 of her
papers on Sonja's Drive. What part of her pa-

pers is that altogether?

Adding the fractions will give you the total.

Sophie's Drive
Sonja's Drive

Look at the denominators. Are they the same?

1/5 + 2/3

Write equivalent fractions with common denomi-

1/5 = 3/15
+ 2/3 = + 10/15

Now add the fractions.

1/5 = 3/15 + 2/3 = 10/15

3/15 +10/15= 13/15

Sandra delivers 13/15 of her papers on
Sophie's Drive and Sona's Drive.


1.2/9+ 1/3
2.1/8 + 1/16
3.2/3 + 4
4.2/8 + 1/3
5. 3/8 +1/3

Look again

Add % and 5/6.

Look at the denominators.
Are they the same?

+ 5/6

Write equivalent fractions
to find fractions with common denominators.

3 = 3X3= 9
4 4X3 12

+5= 5X2=
6 6X2


Add the fractions. Write the sum as a mixed
number in lowest terms.

3 = 9
+4 12

5 =+10
6 12


19/12 = 1 7/12


1.2/10 + 3/10
2. 1 + 3/8

3.% + 5/8

At the Fair


1. Suppose you sold 3/8 of a pitcher of orange
juice on Sunday and 5/6 of a pitcher on Mon-
day. How much juice did you sell in the two

2. Suppose you sold 3/8 of a pitcher of orange
juice on Tuesday and 5/6 of a pitcher on
Wednesday. On which day did you sell more
orange juice and by how much?

3. Suppose you sell about % of a pitcher of
cherry juice a day. How much juice would that
be in 16 days?

In the Paint Business

1. To make green paint, Dennis mixed 113 cup
of blue paint and 3/4 cup of yellow paint. How

Role of dental

nurse increasing

ON OCTOBER 11, 1993, history was made in the field of dentistry in Guyana. Seven
dental nurses graduated which resulted in their numbers surpassing for the first time that
of the dentists operating in the Public Sector. Come September, history is expected to un-
fold once again when the
first batch of dentists will A
begin training locally. It Dl St V I
seems obvious that this e Dentit
trend would be entrenched. Ill :W a
The role and supply of
dental nurses commonly called dentexes in Guyana, are of increasing interest worldwide. This is
due in large part to a growing acceptance of the importance of oral health as a part of total health,
renewed emphasis on setting and attaining health goals and recognition of dental nurses as a major
resource for accomplishing these goals.
Dental nurses constitute one of the largest growing groups of oral health service providers.
They practise primarily as clinicians and health educators in collaboration with other health pro-
fessionals. Their work involves the use of preventative and therapeutic (treatment) methods to
promote health and prevent and control oral diseases.
The 18 months of intense training at the Cheddi
Jagan Dental Centre involves 20 courses which even in-
clude ethics, administration and psychology. After gradu-
ating, a dental nurse is capable of heading a dental de-
1 .. apartment at any interior location or school although their
mandate entails treating persons 17 years and below.
.-.- The United States, where the profession originated
S-. 90 years ago, now has more than 100 000 dental nurses,
u. usually referred to as dental hygienists. In Canada, Den-
S mark, The Netherlands, and Norway, some dental nurses
Work as administrators, consultants and researchers.
SWomen comprise at least 96 per cent of the world's dental
nurse population.
The work role of dental nurses is consistent with the present service requirements and future-
oriented health planning. Such planning emphasises for example, health promotion and self care;
improved access to preventative services for high-risk population groups, and increased technical
efficiency in the use of scarce resources. Our circumstances have permitted us to adopt a training
programme that attempts to equip the students with the skills and knowledge as far as practicable,
to treat the most common dental ailments.
Regulation or governance refers to the legal method and process by which in the public
interest, a professions' scope and standards of practice are defined and controlled, that is,
what a professional'may do and under what conditions. The dental nurses in Guyana func-
tion within the official concept and are expected to work under the supervision of a dentist;
However, technically they are all practising illegally since there is no legislation, bill or
act passed by parliament which specifically accords them exclusive licence to practise. Be-
sides, almost all are not supervised by a dentist and attend to adult patients. These facts
underscore the need for the appropriate authorities to comprehensively review the status
of these health team members with the aim of increasing their effectiveness. On the other
hand, the public must be aware of their capability and purpose.

The 'feeling good' benefits exist for everyone involved in the communications. The people you

done a good job and so your own self-esteem will rise.

A male's hand may have
abetted the grooming of their tal-

women and pioneers in Guyana

the music and entertainment in-

dares to believe in their gift and
chiefly to believe in God.

Monique Mc Curdy, Orpha

ists); Juliana Walters (bass gui-
tar); Victorine Edwards (drums);
and Odessa Shako (keyboard)
are the members of 'Vision'.
Co-director of this phenom-
enal and thriving female gospel
band, Juliana Walters recently

pointed out that the group is so
called because it "embodies; the
nature of the band creation of
something out of nothing and
took vision to really put some-
thing like this into place."
Juliana shares directorship of
'Vision' with Sharon Bryan. 'Vi-
sion' evolved out their friendship
and passion for music.
Determined to synergise
their musical moods, Sharon
and Juliana in November
2002 scouted out other female
musicians in Christendom for
'Vision'. The exploration un-
earthed treasures spanning
four denominations and nine
churches. A dozen beautiful,

single, young, musically
blessed women collaborated
for their first performance at
Gospel Touchdown at the Na-
tional Cultural Centre in De-
cember 2002.

Synchronising vocals with
sound of the drum, guitar and

The ladies soon joined forces in
acquiring their own equipment
and launched their first single

2004. And they are working on
an album for release later this

Recently, Sharon bubbled
with joy as she recalled hers
and Juliana's meeting in
1995, which was on a totally
different front. Juliana had
visited Sharon's home to com-
plete an electrical job. They
spoke and realized that they
shared a fervour for music. A
friendship developed, they lost
touch with each other but des-
tiny brought them together a
few years later while the girls
studied at the University of
Guyana (UG).
Besides their taste for music
all the ladies have jobs in other
professional industries. For in-
stance, Juliana, a qualified elec-

wife had felt that all he needed tor his sight to return to normal waid
a good pair of glasses.
It wasn't until the optician who was contracted to make the glasses, Dr. Don Gomes, ran a test on him that they learnt that he had "fully-matured bilateral cataract,"
which, in layman's terms, means cataract in both eyes.
This meant he couldn't see at all. Gomes said the reason Uncle Charlie's sight deteriorated as rapidly as it did was not only because of age but because he
was also a diabetic. He was diagnosed with the medical condition eight years ago and was on medication. Within a year, he had gone blind in both eyes.
Luckily for 'Uncle Charlie', Gomes said, his older brother, Michael, who lives in Toronto, Canada, and some friends of his were doing a fund-raiser for those people here
who were affected by the February floods, so he was able to ask them to factor in the Cdn$1000 it would cost for him to have surgery to remove the cataract in one eye.
They did as asked, and the operation was done on April 7. It was performed by Dr. Pradeep Agrawal, an' ophthalmologist, at his New Market Street surgery. It was a
success. Now 'Uncle Charlie' is able to see, and to walk around on his own.
He didn't feel a thing, 'Uncle Charlie' said. Neither was he afraid of the operation. All he wanted was a chance to regain his sight. The doctor operated on the right eye.
The left is yet to be done. But according to Dr. Gomes, there's no hurry to do it; that could wait.
"Now that he has one eye done, he could wait his turn... a whole year even... no strain. The fact remains that he is seeing," he said.
According to Uncle Charlie, he started seeing the very next day after the operation, when the doctor took the bandages off his eye. Since then, his sight has been getting
progressively better.
"Ah feeling' so good... ah seeing' everything clear," he declared during a visit a few Saturdays ago to the Chronicle's Bel Air Park offices.
The doctor has, however, warned him not to do anything strenuous, so as to cause a strain on the eye. All that is needed now to complete the process is to get him a pair
of spectacles. He was due at the doctor's for a final check-up last Tuesday.
Meanwhile, he has started to do a bit of gardening again, though he is not quite up to his former old self. But, as his wife observed, he is a bit more confident these days.
He is also the toast of the community.
"Everyone in the village want to know if is'the same 'Charlie'," she said.
Mr. Charles Thomas once worked with the Regional Administration in his district as a driver for the Ministry of Health. He quit after 37 years.

trician holds a certificate in mu-
sic from UG and is currently a
teacher of music at a private
school. Sharon, with a degree in
computer science, also from UG,
tutors computer courses at a
private institution and is also a
full-time marketing executive at
a merchandising firm.
Sharon has been in music 17
years, because attending music
lessons from age 12 was a part
of her "rounded upbringing." She
grew up with musical instru-
ments such as the flute, ecorder
and guitar in her home, and with
other family members who have
a knack for music. One of her
uncles, now living in England in-
vented a steel pan played with
four sticks.
Juliana is economical with
words but lavish with her
strums on the bass guitar as
she demonstrated at one of
'Vision's recent appearances
- Gospel Fest. She considers
herself a general musician, but
says that the guitar is her
first love. In a recent inter-
view, she had to be probed
for answers to questions. She
revealed that her father played
the harmonica.
"I've never heard anyone
else play like him. He was a cun-
ning player. I think that I was the
only child who paid attention to
his music," she said of her fa-
ther, who is now deceased.
How do these 12 young
women co-exist?
"We pray a lot," Sharon
and Juliana concurred. The
girls are constantly interact-
ing in social activities and the
group has been sliced into
segments of responsibilities,
fostering effective goal
achievement. These ladies
take charge of areas such as
training, social activities,
prayer, treasury, public rela-
tions and fashion.
"Yeah, fashion had to be
given emphasis; we're all ladies
and have to look good," Sharon
said, beaming.
The purpose of Vision is to
promote the gospel through mu-
sic and song, to challenge young
women to use their gifts and to
provide entertainment, essen-
tially, for young people.
Towaids these objectives
'Vision' tours the country,
mainly, in answer to invitations
for concerts and crusades. The
group recently travelled to
Trinidad and Tobago for a wor-
ship conference. Their perfor-
mance there was "very well re-
Sharon and Juliana believe
that people should be motivated
to be all that God wants them
to be. "Go to the grave empty.
Help others to reach their full
potential. Lots of youths are idle
and they get into mischief. In-
stead they should use their gifts
and become a blessing, role
model and masterpiece," the
young women advocate.
Now that is vision!

However, Getz and Byrd's
attempts to reproduce the Bra-
zilian sound of Jobim/Gilberto
failed miserably. It was only af-
ter several attempts they suc-
ceeded in recording the famous
album 'Jazz Samba' in 1962. By
1963, 'Jazz Samba' had hit No.
1 on the Billboard Pop Charts,
and Bossa Nova became a world
craze. Never before, or since, has
an instrumental Jazz album done
that. The reason layin the origi-
nal Brazilian beat and mood of
the music which did not reflect
the fixed stereotype of life in
South America as a 'Third
World' hell of endless revolu-
*tions, gunplay, crimes, exploita-
tion, poverty and starvation,
which at that time began to de-
fine all life on the continent.
Indeed, Getz would help to
inspire new national and conti-
nental pride in South Americans
who wanted to better their con-,
tinent. Later, Getz would record
Bossa Nova Jazz albums with
Brazilians, one of which was the
famous 'Gezt/Gilberto', which,
in 1964 rose to No. 2 on the Bill-
board Pop Charts and stayed
there for 96 weeks.
The new Bossa Nova and
Jazz Samba introduced positive
musical developments, rather
than reflected negative social re-
alities in general
Getz's interest in this new
music also stemmed from his
realisation that American Jazz
then was in a state of anaemiaa
and confusion' and lacked
rhythms that South American
music had. But Getz also needed
this calming music personally,
since he, like most of the nest
American Jazz musicians then,
was a heroin addict. David

A South American

progression (Part One)

THE birth of South
American Jazz
was a musical
progression that
communicated both
instrumentally and
vocally, the geographic,
thoughtful, and sensual
moods of everyday life
3n the continent.
Before this music fully
merged in the 1950s
ind '60s on the
-ontinent and the
U.S.A., South American
usic was mainly Folk
Vusic, or Street Music
generally a
-ombination of Latin
guitars, Indian flutes,
whistles, African drums
nd percussion, and
"imple colloquial vocals.
From this local musical
lend emerged popular South
\merican musical styles and
lance crazes like the Tango,
Zumba, Mambo, Merengue,
'ha-Cha-Cha, Samba, and oth-
;rs. The same sort of local trends
'merged in the Caribbean islands,
vith names like Calypso, Ska,
Zock-Steady, Reggae, Soca, etc.
'his simple but infectious col-
oquial tropical music gained 'ex-
)tic' fame in the U.S.A. and Eu-
ope to such an extent that it be-
-ame a fixed style expected of
musicians from the region.
A beautiful and uplifting
changee from this fixed
grassroots' musical course oc-
urred when vocal and instru-
nental tropical Jazz began to
merge, primarily from Brazil,
'enezuela, Argentina, and Cuba
n the 1950s. Visits to South
kmerica since the 1940s by great
azz musicians like Duke
illington and Dizzy Gillespie,
vho would be the first to intro-
luce South American rhythms to
,orth American Jazz, also in-

spired the birth of South Ameri-
can Jazz.
Brazilian musicians, espe-
cially those who were not na-
tionalistic zealots, but cosmo-
politan intellectuals, understood
that the human mind shared cre-
ative similarities everywhere.
The same cool and rhythmically
inventive Jazz being pioneered
by Jazz musicians like Miles
Davis, Gerry Mulligan, Gil
Evans, and Chet Baker in North
America, shared a similar concern
with harmonic melodies which
obsessed young Brazilians com-
posers and musicians like Anto-
nio Jobim, Joao Gilberto,
Augustin Lara, Vinicius de
Moraes, Luiz Bonfa, Baden
Powell and others emerging in
Brazilian cities like Bahia and
The progressive difference
between these new South Ameri-
can musicians and those who
made South America and the Car-
ibbean famous only for 'exotic'
grassroots music, was that these
new composers of tropical Jazz
began to look. around at their
various natural, social and per-
sonal South American environ-
ments, then began to structurally
compose instrumentals and vo-
cals which imaginatively captured
and reflected the moods and
sounds aroused by foaming tides
on beaches, changing skies,
tropical lights, sun, rain, breeze
at sunrise, noon, sunset, etc.; the
colours and flight of birds trav-
elling inland, beside rivers, in
jungles, forests, etc.; and, of
course, many feelings of inti-
macy, sensuality, romance felt
and shared in such local places.
However, the typical hot,
noisy, simple rhythms of
'street music like the Samba,
Mambo, etc. would not be for-
gotten, but become a major
influence on musicians like
Joao and Astrud Gilberto,
Jobim and others, who cooled
it down, gave it structure, clar-
ity and freshness by adding
airy sensual guitars, piano

and bass to the percussion
mix. This new South Ameri-
can Jazz music was called
Bossa Nova, and remains the
cornerstone from which some
of the nest continental tropi-
cal Jazz evolves today.
In 1961, the North American
classical Jazz guitarist Charlie
Byrd introduced the cool but
swinging American tenor saxo-

phonist Stan Getz to a record of
Johim and Gilberto he had
brought back from Brazil. The
result would change the direction
of Jazz on the whole forever,
and lead to a fresh progression
in tropical South American Jazz.
Getz immediately recognized
many harmonic values he shared
with the Brazilians, and con-
vinced producer Creed Taylor to

Gelly, a Getz biographer, quotes
Getz as saying: "The best way
to create something is to get into
the 'Alpha state', what we call
'relaxed concentration.' The
Bossa Nova Jazz he had been in-
troduced to by Brazilian artists
did just that. Getz's sax would
develop a zig-zag, curving seduc-
tive sound that was at once sen-
sual and spiritually lively,
prompting the great Afro-Ameri-
can Jazz artist John Coltrane to
say upon hearing Getz play:
"We'd all sound like that if we
could", then promptly kick his
own heroin habit.
Meanwhile, in early 1960s
British Guiana, not even the
senseless racial and political
violence that was fomenting
could stop this new Bossa
Nova craze and the tropical
fashions of bright striped
shirts, skirts, dresses, jeans,
flat dancing shoes, etc., that
went with it like a familiar lo-
cal tropical style. Georgetown
was perhaps the most exciting
and fashionable city in the
Anglo-region back then, its
spacious, comfortable avenues
and streets were dotted with
packed nightclubs, overflow-
ing cinemas,showing the best
international films, and happy
safe neighborhoods. Local
instrumental bands like
'Combo 7', 'The
Rhythmaires', 'Bumble -and
the Saints', 'Chet and the
Diamonds', and others, kept
the city hopping and were on
the verge of creating local
tropical Jazz. The increasing
rural political and racial tur-
moil of the 1960s slowly
strangled that cultural evolu-
tion, and by the end of the
1970s, political and racial ide-
ologies dominated the society.
Many creative, skilled and
educated Guyanese packed up
and left to avoid adjusting to the
general decline of many areas of
national life. Despite economic
progress due to international
debt relief since the 1990s, the
rebirth of progressive music, or

tive and intelligent Guyanese,

From page VI
another sound, and
Drupatie "jumped" for the
sound was more distinct,
somewhat like a hard and
loud slap.
"Drupatie come and see wa
happen ya" Lalbeharry bawled.
She ambled slowly and care-
fully over the coarse floor ap-
proaching the bedroom. Her
ballooned shape body made the
floor sink and rise like a heavy
car passing over an old wooden
bridge. There she saw their son,
Marshall, lying with his face
buried in the pillows and his
lower body was covered with a
dark brown linen riddled with
"Wa happened Marshall"

Drupatie inquired. No answer.
Lalbeharry jumped up and
shouted, "he ah afraid about
Jumbie but he na know how to
behave he self." Ever since
Marshall was six years old, he
was afraid of Jumbies and so he
was afraid to sleep alone. This
wasn't strange. Kids like
Marshall, especially between
the age of six and twelve, were
afraid of Jumbies. After all, the
elderly village folks spoke
openly about Jumbies as mys-
terious figures appearing in the
night in varying frightening
forms. The most common was
the lady with the white wedding
dress. Drupatie, however,
would encourage Marshall to
sleep between herself and
Lalbeharry especially when the
couple fought and when

Lalbeharry was drunk. But this
night, Marshall was sleeping
and dreaming and unknowingly
grabbed on to Lalbeharry and
wouldn't let go.
"Man me think like vice
hold on to me" Lalbeharry
pointed out curiously. From
that night on Marshall wasn't
afraid of Jumbies. Lalbeharry's
slap somehow knocked the
Jumbie out of him.
The sun was coming up and
the traffic started to increase.
The stray dogs were scouring
for food and the donkeys were
braying, moving aimlessly
across the red brick road. The
villagers jokingly called the don-
keys "traffic police" because
their presence on the road indi-
rectly caused the traffic to slow
down or come to halt like the

sacred cows in Indian cities do.
"Lal go and see your sauce
pan and water bag ready fo you
to goh wok." Drupatie in-
Lalbeharry rushed down the
back step skipping a few. miss-
ing steps before making a final
jump to the-ground. He lowered
his head and grabbed his work
cloth from the line underneath
the house. The cloth was dry
but stiff from black ashes from
burned cane stalks. His machete
was already sharpened the night
before and Drupatie placed it by
his water bag.
"Drup make sure Marshall
goes to school" remarked
Lalbeharry as he ran out of the
yard to catch the truck. The
family was keen to have
Marshall receive the necessary

SDrupatie sat on the porch
facing the road fanning herself,
watching the traffic.
"How me bach-a-roo doing
dis morning", Drupatie said to
"Me na feel to go to school
today" Marshall answered.
Marshall hated school and
on the weekends he would
spend most of his time with
Deolall on the village coconut
farm riding donkeys and hunt-
ing cherry doves with his sling
shot. When Marshall was seven
years old while doing Arith-
metic on the chalk board he was
whipped by teacher Ali in front
of the class. He was whipped
so severely that he had diarrhea
on the spot, Marshall's cousin
Rena was called to help him out
and teacher Ali moved the class
to a shaded area on the ball
field. Neither Marshall nor Rena
ever mentioned anything about
this episode to Drupatie or
Lalbeharry fearing that
Lalbeharry would get drunk and
"curse out" teacher Ali.
Drupatie instructed
Marshall to take a bath and
come to the porch to get ready.
"Dis .boy would look nice,
nice today and dis boy would
become doctor one day,".
Drupatie spoke proudly as she
dabbed the coconut oil on
Marshall's body and hair to the
point where the oil was running
down the side of his face. The
neighbours would stare curi-
ously at the manner how
Drupatie would dress Marshall
especially when they believed
Marshall was old enough to
dress himself, and more curi-
ously, why she always dressed
him on the porch. The more the
neighbours stared the more
Drupatie applied the oil and
powder to Marshall's body. A
few days ago, Drupatie went to
buy a chicken from Uncle Ganga
to cook on Phagwah Day and
she made sure that the chicken's
head was out of the bag, pok-
ing the lower body now and
again not to allow the chicken

to breathe but to announce to
the neighbourhood that she
would have meat for the holi-
It was about twelve o'clock
and the sun was strikingly hot.
Children were in school and
husbands were at work. The
village was eerily quiet inter-
rupted with an occasional crow-
ing of roosters and the passing
traffic. Drupatie shook and
placed the empty rice bag on the
porch ready to take a nap when
she saw teacher Armrit passing
on the bicycle.
"How come you na dey

"I amnot feeling well... I am
going to get some pills from the
dispenser at Skeldon. But must
send Marshall to school,"
teacher Armrit advised as he
pedalled slowly past Drupatie's
"But me always send he to
The next day, Drupatie got
up early about sunrise. She held
Marshall's hand with immense
approval and confidence and
they hurriedly used the back
street to school. Teacher Armrit
was not in yet and other school
children were starting to amble
into the yard.
"Good morning Drupatie
good to see that you bring
Marshall to school", teacher
Armrit said as he leaned his bi-
cycle against the fence.
"But every morning I bade
and send dis boy to school, you
know," Drupatie insisted.
Teacher Armrit said to
Drupatie: "Come in and fol-
low me to my desk. He
brought the attendance book
and put it on the table along-
side the wild cane, gracefully
opening it. He said look here,
there are fifty-two zeroes, fifty-
two absences. Drupatie looked
at Marshall with dismay, ut-
tering not a single word.
Marshall bowed his head and
remained quiet. Drupatie
realized that Marshall's chances
of becoming some one better
than herself and Lalbeharry was
vanishing. Marshall will have to
cut sugar cane for a living.

The Heart.
The heart is a muscular pump; it pumps blood around
the entire body. This blood then carries oxygen and food
for the body to use.
When ever we exercise our bodies need more oxygen
and food which is used up as fuel. As we exercise the
heart pumps the blood faster to transport it around the
body more quickly. This causes our pulse rate to increase
as we work faster.
The blood is carries around the body in blood vessels.
The vessels carrying blood away from the heart is called
arteries; those carrying blood to the heart are called veins.

The Female and Male Reproduction System
The female reproductive organs are made up of the
following the egg plant, ovary, womb, vigina and viva. While
the male reproductive organs are made of the bladder,
sperm tube, urethra, epididymis, testis, penis and the
During the reproductive process the penis is placed
inside the vagina and sperms are released at the top of
the vigina. The sperm then swims up the womb to the egg
plant where it meets the egg. The sperm and the egg are
joined together and then moves sown the ovary where it
develops into a new baby.
The sperm has a long tail which helps it to swim up
the womb to meet the egg. The egg has a yolk which is
the food source for the baby when it initially begins to

The Excerpt

The house had retired for the night before Rachel
came through again.
"We're going home, mother arid me," she told
us. "Anne's turned everyone out, and she's alone
there now. Mother wanted to stay, but Anne is
beside herself and hysterical. She made.them
go. They were afraid she'd be worse if they in-
sisted on staying. She's told Mother she knows
who's responsible for Alan's death, but, she
wouldn't name anybody."
"You do think she means us? After all, it is
possible that Alan may have had some bitter
quarrel of his own that we know nothing about,"
Michael suggested.
Rachel was more than dubious. "If it were
only that, she'd surely have let me in. She
wouldn't have screamed at me to go away," she
pointed out. "I'll go over early in the morning,
and see if she's changed her mind."
With that we had to be content for the mo-
ment. We could relax a little for a few hours at
least. Rachel told us. later what happened the

Writing Compositions
Guidance is never too much in composition writ-
ing. When you write you do many things. You
can tell about something that happened, what
something was or is like, what you know about
something, how to do something, what you think
about something and what some other person
thinks about something. Just imagine that such
pieces of writing will be possible for you to do
quite easily once you are shown the way!

Of course each of the many things to write about
has its own way of organization But whatever
the organization, there are certain things that
must be looked into. These things are: how to
get started, how to stop, and how to arrange what

weeds either manually, chemi-
cally or mechanically. Where
weeds are removed either manu-
ally or mechanically it is impor-
tant to burn the dried material;
pruning and burning of branches
and/or leaves infested/infected
with pests. These practices are
necessary to eliminate the
breeding sites of several insect
pests. Around the perimeter of
the cultivated area may be
found vegetation (grass, shrub
etc.) which can serve as alternate
hosts for a number of pests.
These pests survive on the al-
ternate hosts and when the time
is right they move over to the
plant crop. The damage done to
the crop plant can be tremen-
dous. These alternate hosts
must be destroyed and the pe-
rimeter kept clean. This will de-
stroy the food source of the
pest and reduce the level of at-
tack on the plant crop.

Weeds are plants growing
where they are not wanted.
They play a very important
role in vegetable production for
they not only reduce yields due
to their competition with the
crop for water and nutrients but
also serve as havens or alternate
hosts for other pests. The
method of controlling weeds
also increase the cost of produc-
tion of the crop. A good weed
management strategy is there-
fore essential in vegetable pro-

duction. Weed management aims
at reducing the level of weed in-
festation below the level that
will interfere with the growth of
the crop. There are six main
methods of controlling weeds,
these are:-

Preventative weed control
Quarantine the prevention
of weeds from entering the area.
Physical weed control -
this includes operations such as
tillage, hand weeding, hoeing
and brush cutting.
Biological weed control -
this entails the use of the natu-
ral pest of the weed to control
the weed.
Ecological weed control -
this entails modifying the envi-
ronment making it more suitable
for the crop and less suitable for
the weed.
Chemical weed control -
this entails the use of herbicides.
In using herbicides, one should
take the following into consid-

Time of application
Pre-planting incorpo-
Mode of action
Granular (G)
Emulsifiable concen-
trate (EC)
Flowable liquid (FW)
Wettable powder

Weed management com-
mences at land preparation.
This should give a few weeks of
control and could be followed
manually, culturally mechani-
cally or chemically. This is nec-
essary within the first few
weeks of crop growth after
which time the growth of the
crop should be able to suppress
weed growth.

Manual weed control: en-
tails the use of cutlasses/ ma-
chetes and hoes, however re-
growth is possible. Hence it
may be necessary to do this
more than once before full crop
cover is established.

Cultural weed control: .in
this method mulching is highly
recommended. Mulches not
only suppress weed growth, but
it conserves soil water and, as-
is in the case of organic mulch
(grass, litter etc.) adds nutrients.
to the soil when the mulch de-
compose. Placing the mulch ma-
terial evenly over the soil sur-
face will impede the emergence/
growth of the weeds. The most
commonly used mulch material
in weed control is dried grass or
black plastic.

Mechanical: a motorized
grass cutting machine for cutting
the top of the weeds.

Chemical weed control: this
entails the use of chemicals.
Two popular types of chemi-
cals are used. These are:-
Pre-emergent: the chemical

is applied prior to the emer-
gence of crop. Germinating
weed seed are killed or sup-
pressed. This will allow a weed
free state for three to four weeks
at which time vigorous crop
growth should suppress the
weeds. For best pre-emergent
treatment a damp soil is neces-
Post-emergent: the chemical
is applied directly on the weed.
A selective herbicide could be
used. This herbicide when
sprayed over the crop will de-
stroy only the weeds.
Broad base non-selective
herbicides should be applied as
a directed spray using a protec-
tive shield to prevent the drift
of the chemical. The shield is to
avoid the harmful sprays from
reaching the crop. Post-emer-
gent spraying is most effective
when the weeds are young (two
to four leaf stage).
In using chemical weed con-
trol the following should be
bourne in mind:-
Choose chemicals carefully
to fit the circumstances
Do pre-emergent spraying
on damp soil
Do post-emergent spraying
when the weeds are as young as
Don't spray when a
breeze is blowing.

OVER the last two weeks I
spent some time dealing with
commercial pet foods the
forms in which they come and
their ingredients. Let's look
today at some other aspects of
nutrition for the old dog.
Since an older dog is less ac-
tive, he needs fewer calories
than when he was younger.
Without a reduction in number
of calories, the older dog is
likely :to gain weight which
puts an additional strain on his
limited organ reserve. This con-
tributes to a shortened life span.
Feeding "treats" between meals,
and adding table scraps are two
of the main reasons why dogs,
old or young, get too fat.
Calories (energy) require-
ments for the older dog have to
be determined on an individual
basis. You must take into con-
sideration your dog's ideal
weight (i.e. the weight at which
he is neither too fat nor too
thin), how active he is, and what
his emotional make-up may be.
Highly-strung dogs require more
food than their more sedated
In general, an elderly dog of
average size needs only about
25 to: 30 calories per pound
body weight per day. Canned
dog foods supply about 500
calorie' in a pound of ration.
fmoisi or "chunk%" dog food

about 1300 calories; and dry
kibble about 1600 calories.
Since the older dog must eat
less food, it is important that his
food be of the highest quality to
provide him with an adequate
daily supply of nutrients. An
ideal old dog diet would supply
a somewhat higher concentration
of protein than an ordinary adult
maintenance diet, and a some-
what lower concentration of fat.
In this regard, such a diet would
be qualitatively closer to the
composition of ingredients for-
mulated for the growth of pup-
pies (although proportionately
the older dog would eat much
less than a growing puppy).
While high quality protein is
important for the older dog, he
should not be fed.a diet too rich
in meat or one containing pro-
tein of poor quality. This cre-
ates an increase nitrogen.load
which must be handled by the
old dog's old liver and kidneys.
Dogs with weak kidneys can ex-
perience kidney failure by feed-
ing them more protein than they
can handle.. Energy needs are
better met by giving easily di-
gestible carbohydrates cooked
to break down starch granules.
High quality protein suitable for
the 'digestive tract of an older
dog can be supplied by adding
small amounts of cooked mince,
boiled egg, cottage cheese, or
skim rmlk to a kibble ba.e. If
.,our dog seems to be losing
weight or appears to need more

- Continued

It is desirable when feeding
the older dog to divide his daily
ration into two equal parts and
feed the first half in the morn-
ing and' the second in the
The above has been
taken largely from a book on
animal care by Drs Carlson
and Giffin.

calories, try adding small amounts
of carbohydrate (cooked cereals,
cooked rice, or farina).
While fats increase the
palatability of food, they are
difficult for the older dog to
digest and are high in calo-
ries. Some fat is required to
aid the intestinal absorption
of vitamins, and to provide for
the manufacture of essential
fatty acids, but adequate
amounts are supplied by
commercial dog foods,. Fats
supplements should not be
added to the ration.
Old dogs need more miner-
als and vitamins. B vitamins are
lost in the urine of dogs having
reduced kidney function; also,
absorption of vitamins through
the intestinal tract decreases as
the individual ages. Calcium and
phosphorus in correct balance
(1.2 to 1) helps to prevent soft-
ening of the bones. Therefore,
many old dogs probably need a
vitamin/mineral supplement.
But it should be balanced to
meet the metabolic needs. Your
veterinarian can recommend an
appropriate supplement to meet
the specific requirements of
your dog. If you use a commer-
cial pet food especially formu-
lated for older dogs, you may
not need to add vitamins and
nunerals unless there is a spe-
cific medical reason to do so.


Please implement disease preventative measures
(vaccinations, routine dewormings, monthly anti-Heartworm
medication, etc.) and adopt-a-pet from the GSPCA's Animal
Clinic and Shelter at Robb Street and Orange Walk, if you
