(GINA), the two areas will re-

GINA said that in keeping
with Government's commitment
to the development of various
communities countrywide, the
UAEP is being carried out si-
multaneously with massive road
The Prime Minister told
the electrical contractors to
work in tandem with the road
works contractors to avert pos-.
sible clashes since in some cases
holes have been dug to plant
electrical poles when the road
was already done.

The primary phase of the
work includes the planting df
poles and connection of pri-
mary cables and, following pay-
ment and certification, individual
connection will begin. Some 6
000 households will benefit.
Residents noted that the
infrastructural works are appre-
ciated and will significantly im-
pact their livelihood.
One grocery store propri-
etor noted that he would "now
be able to sell cold-drinks" since
he would have access to elec-

Others said that with the road
works on stream, bad weather will
no longer prevent their children
from going to school.
The UAEP targets thou-
sands of residents across the

preference because they are
among the largest and oldest

Despite the negative effects
of natural disasters on the
Caribbean economy, the lat-
est Economic Survey from
the Economic Commission
for Latin America and the
Caribbean (ECLAC) projects
a growth rate of four per cent
for 2005, which is slightly
above the rate recorded in
Among CARICOM coun-
tries, Trinidad and Tobago
stands out with a projected eco-
nomic growth rate of 6.3 per
cent, mainly thanks to the per-
formance of the energy and tour-
ism sectors.
The combined region of
Latin America and the Caribbean
(LAC) will grow 4.3 per cent
this year and as much as four
per cent is likely in 2006.
Should forecasts from ECLAC
prove accurate, the region
should complete four straight
years of growth and achieve a
total rise in per capital GDP of
about 10 per cent, for 2003-
2006. In 2004, economies grew-
almost 6 percent, up from two
per cent the previous year.
"There is room for some
optimism," states ECLAC, since
the LAC region "is better pre-
pared to face the challenges," at
the same time as it notes the
need to grow more quickly to
deal with serious problems in
the labour market.
In 2005, South America is
expected to grow 4.7 per cent,
Mexico and Central America 3.6
per cent, and the Caribbean four
per cent, according to projec-
tions published in the Economic
Survey of Latin America and
the Caribbean, 2004-2005. Ar-
gentina led growth (7.3 per
cent), followed by Venezuela (7
per cent), Uruguay (6.2 per
cent), Chile (6 per cent), Peru
(5.5 per cent) and Panama (4.5
per cent).
Despite the slowdown ex-
pected in the world economy, in

2005 the region has continued to
benefit from a very favourable
external scenario, featuring
growth in world GDP and inter-
national trade, rising commodity
prices and low interest rates.
The recovery in domestic
demand has been bolstered by
interest rates that are still his-
torically low and currency ap-
preciation in several countries
during the early months of
2005, which have made imports
cheaper. Thus, although
ECLAC expects a strong per-
formance from the export sec

Despite constraints.

Significant strides made in safety,

security Civil Aviation Authority

THE Guyana Civil Aviation
Authority (GCAA) says it has
been making significant
strides in its capacity to ex-
ecute safety and security
oversight over the air trans-
port industry despite con-
Director General of the
GCCA, Chabeenanan Ramphul,
in a statement said: "Progress is
ongoing all the time despite the
fact that many constraints have
to be overcome. As a young or-
ganization, the constraints are
many and diverse ranging from
the availability of competent

human resources to training of
new staff, development of hand-
books and guidance material for
the staff in pursuit of their
functions. The authority is
bringing about a paradigm shift
and new work ethos for carry-
ing out its functions of safety
The Director General issued
the statement in response to a
release issued by the Aircraft
Owners Association of Guyana
(AOAG) in which several con-
cerns pertaining to the capacity
of GCAA to carry out its man-
date were raised.

cumbed at 04:15 h yesterday.
Yougnauth is in custody
and his vehicle lodged.
In another road accident at

He added that the oversight
capabilities of the GCAA are
constantly being audited by
bodies such as the International
Civil Aviation Organisation
(ICAO) and the Federal Avia-
tion Authority (FAA). The
GCAA is currently preparing for
an audit by the ICAO.
Ramphul said the FAA has
indicated its intention of execut-
ing an audit jointly with the Re-
gional Aviation Safety Oversight
System (RASOS) of
CARICOM next month.
"The GCAA is preparing
itself for this audit, and as such
it is not in the best interest of
this Authority not to fulfill its
oversight obligations;" Ramphul -
Rejecting the contention by
the AOAG that Flight Opera-
tions Inspector of the GCAA is
not competent, the Director
General asserted that the person
has met the essential require-
ments and has received exten-
sive training over the last two
years in the US by the FAA and
Transport Canada, which was
confirmed- by the FAA during
the recently held RASOS meet-
ing here.
Ramphul further pointed
out that a pilot can only be del-
egated as a Flight Inspections
Inspector at the GCAA if the
person has been properly

trained in the duties of an in-
"The AOAG has thus
closed all avenues of allowing its
members, the aircraft operators,
to being under safety surveil-
lance by the Authority. It must
be pointed out that two opera-
tors are working with the In-
spector without any problem.
Besides, our Inspector also
deals with foreign carriers for
ramp inspections," Ramphul
He also pointed out that
conscious of the need for an ad-
ditional Flight Operations In-
spector the GCAA advertised
the vacancy but received only
four applicants and of the two
who were found to be suitable
both declined to take up the of-
"The Authority cannot re-
linquish its responsibility for
the surveillance of the air-
craft operations. Were it not
for the negative stance taken
by the AOAG, the Authority
would be proactive to fulfill
its mandate for safety over-
sight. The Authority is dis-
tressed that the regulatory
issues between the Authority
as the regulator and the regu-
lated entity has come to such
a pass that this statement has
to be issued," Ramphul re-

6 SUNDAY CHRONICLE August 7, 2005



WHATEVER the nature of their quiet diplomatic initiatives
to cool tempers in their respective jurisdictions on the
freedom of Guyanese to travel to Barbados
without being frequently humiliated, or worse, denied
entry, the governments in Georgetown and Bridgetown
should consider it appropriate to issue a joint statement,
as soon as possible, for public edification.
This would be quite in accordance with the spirit and-
letter of the 2002 Guyana-Barbados bilateral agreement
that covers a range of issues for cooperation, including
fisheries and marine affairs, immigration, trade, invest-
ment and agriculture and cultural developments.
If at the time of the signing of that agreement between
the Foreign Ministers of Guyana and Barbados

during the CARICOM Summit of that year in
Georgetown, the problem of Guyanese visitors or migra-
tion to Barbados was not a vexed issue, and,
consequently, not properly identified, it is now certainly
a highly emotional and controversial affair.
The controversy reached a new level last month
when approximately 30 Guyanese, including four chil-
dren, were denied entry at Barbados' Grantley Adams
International Airport. This provoked howls of protest not
only from the affected: Guyanese but their relatives and
friends in Barbados, as well as here at home.
For their part, Barbadian nationals have been taking
to the airwaves on radio talk shows to make some very
unpleasant allegations against Guyanese arrivals and
also those legally residing in that CARICOM state.
Since sections of the region's media have been re-
porting critically on what is perceived to be an escalat-
ing anti-Guyanese sentiment, thankfully still identified
with a vocal minority in Barbados, it is incumbent on the
part of both the administrations of President Bharrat
Jagdeo and Prime Minister Owen Arthur to meet, or have
their Foreign Ministers do so, as speedily as possible.
As President Jagdeo and Prime Minister Arthur would
be aware, things have a habit of getting out of control
when not addressed appropriately and on time, particu-
larly when emotionalism is substituted for rational, ma-
tured responses.
We also share the view of some senior regional tech-
nocrats that now may be the moment when CARICOM
should have a special encounter on intra-regional mi-
gration and, more specifically, freedom of movement of

Community nationals beyond the current phased imple-
mentation of skilled nationals.
Haiti, whose population is bigger than the combined
national populations of the entire Community of English-
speaking members, plus.Suriname, has to, be taken into
consideration when such an encounter takes place on
planned migration.
This is where regional organisations'like the Carib-
bean Congress of Labour (CCL) and the Caribbean As-.
sociation of Industry and Commerce (CAfC) should dem-
onstrate active interest for a practical, holistic approach
to what remains an unresolved socio-economic/cultural
issue in our march towards the creation of a common
economic .space with freedom of capital, labour and
goods and services as essential factors.

Signalling changes in

Haiti ahead of elections

E-Mamongpolticl.pisoersto e released-

By Rickey Singh

and Presidential elections in
Haiti on the horizon, possibly
in November, there are indi-
cations of significant shifts in
policies and programmes,
both in Washington and Port-
au-Prince, to improve the hu-
man rights climate in that
Caribbean nation. This
includes ending the policy of
long imprisonment without
charges and court trials of
presumed political prisoners
and advocates of violence.
Since September last year,
there have been more than 900


reported killings by armed po-
litical gangs and criminals, de-
spite the presence of a 7,000
plus UN Peace-Keeping force.
Former Haitian Prime Min-
ister, Yvon Neptune, is ex-
pected to be one of the imme-
diate beneficiaries of this un-
folding policy, with a new
United States ambassador as-
signed to Port-au-Prince, and
with increasing pressures also on
the interim regime of Prime

Minister Gerard Latortue from
the United Nations.
Arrested since last year for
alleged murder, Neptune, who
was Prime Minister under the
administration of deposed Presi-
dent Jean Bertrand Aristide,
was only charged after months
of protests at home, in the
region and internationally for
him to be placed before the
courts or be set free.
Expected to have been re-
leased at least one month ago
but still facing murder charges
for trial later, this develop-
ment is now imminent, accord-
ing to human rights and diplo-
matic sources.
A recent signifi-
cant voice for the
immediate release of
Neptune was that
-of UN special en-
voy to Haiti. Juan
Gabriel Valdes, who
last week said the
former Haitian Prime
Minister's continuing
imprisonment was a
Source of deep con-
cern for Secretary
General Kofi Annan
and the UN Security
Council itself, ac-
cording to a Reuters
Latest political
developments sug-
gests a deal that involved key
American and Haitian players
for the release of some high
profile political prisoners who
have been associated with kill-
ings and political violence under
the administrations of Aristide
as well as following the down-
fall of his government in Febru-
ary 2004 with the support of
the USA.
One of the best known of
such prisoners, recently.re-.

leased, is a frontline leader of
the notorious former CIA-
funded anti-Aristide
organisation, FRAPH, Louis
Jodel Chamblain, who had fled
to the USA after Aristide was

returned to power under the Bill
Clinton administration.
Critics of US policy on
Haiti and the interim regime in
Port-au-Prince, argue that it is
simply untenable to have

Leading human rights
organizations like Amnesty In-
ternational! and Human Rights
Watch continue to point to the
threats to Haiti's future by
armed groups, both supporters
and opponents of Aristidc's
Lavalas Family Party.

Like another controversial,
violent anti-Aristide trouble
shooter and beneficiary of US
intelligence support, Guy
Philippe, Chamblain is not
without ambitions for high po-

litical office and there would be
close monitoring by the UN
peace-keeping forces in Haiti to
prevent influential elements like
them disrupting arrangements
for the coming elections.
While the Electoral Council
is pressing ahead, amid continu-
ing political tension and spo-
radic killings and violence, to
complete an electoral roll for the
parliamentary and presidential
elections, those who remain
pessimistic about such elections
this year, have reminded that the
local government elections origi-
nally scheduled for October,
have already been postponed.
By last week, the Electoral
Council was still below fifty
per cent of its targeted four
million eligible voters for the
elections. But the
Latortue administra-
tion is. hopefully, to
have at least more
than two million

parliamentary and
presidential elec-
At the close of
nominations last week, there
were some 63 parties registered
to contest the elections, among
them that of Aristide's Lavalas,
which is still reputed to be the
most popular mass-based of the
leading contenders for state
But Aristide, who remains
in exile in South Africa, will not
be in Haiti to assist Lavalas
which could face an
internal leadership problem of
its own in the choice of a presi-
dential candidate.
The moreso, according to
some Haitian human rights ac-

tivists, since the arrest on a
charge of murder of the priest
and political activist friend of
Aristide, Fr Gerard Jean-Juste.
He is accused of the kidnap
and.murder last month of the
popular Haitian journalist and
poet, Jacques Roche, a crime he
firmly denies amid conflicting
reports that he was in Miami at
the time of Roche's death.

Kidnappings for ransom
have been on the increase, a
concern for the UN peace-keep-

and the US government which
has allocated some US$2. 5M to
assist the administration in Port-

cess of arbitrary detention and

ferers of Gousse's concept of

for the Haitian masses remains
quite grim as the poverty-
stricken nation lurch from cri-
sis to crisis.
Indeed, the prevailing
mood, based on various
reports, point to serious
doubts that the coming elec-
tions would indeed herald a
new beginning for demo-

brake on political violence,
corruption, fear
and grinding poverty.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE August 14, 2005


WOLF Blitzer of CNN tried to

trap former United States Presi-

dent Bill Clinton during an inter-

view last week and failed.

On his new 'The Situation
Room' programme, Blitzer
baited Mr Clinton for a while
on President George W. Bush's
war in Iraq and then tried to
hook him into saying that the
war was a mistake.
Mr Clinton is, however, too
savvy a politician to be caught
napping like that and skirted the
issue. And when Blitzer point-
edly asked him whether he felt
the Bush war in Iraq was a mis-
take, the former President
bluntly told his interviewer that
he was trying to get him to
make news.
With the death toll rising
among American troops de-
ployed in Iraq and with Bush
coming under mounting pres-
sure at home to pull U.S. sol-
diers from that country, Blitzer
was clearly fishing for a good
news angle by trying to get
Clinton to denounce the war.
But Clinton was having
none of it and told Blitzer so.
Not to be outdone, Blitzer re-
sponded that he is a newsman and
it is his job to try to get the news.
Can't blame you for trying,
Wolf. Everybody else but Bush
and his sidekick British Prime
Minister Tony Blair seem to
realise that Bush declared war on
Iraq and sent troops there un-
der false pretence and getting
Clinton to come out against the
incursion would have been a
good news scoop.
That's the nature of news
people always going after a
good story and Clinton, al-
though he is no longer Presi-
dent, carries a lot of weight and
is what we in the profession call
'good copy'. Wolf sniffed a
good story when he had Clinton
on the line in the exclusive in-
terview and went after it but
the crafty Bill eluded him.
That sixth sense that's so
endemic in good journalists and
which was driving Blitzer when
he was interviewing Clinton on
the Bush war in Iraq is what
separates the men from the
boys, the pros from the
I smiled as I watched Wolf
trying to hook Clinton on a slip-
pery issue a member of the
brotherhood at work, trying to
dig and probe deeper to get be-
yond the fluff and waffle, to
peel away the husk from the
coconut and get at the cool, re-
freshing water and jelly inside.
It's a trait that's so sadly
lacking among many in the pro-
fession here Who: so',otei' sit

back and are simply prepared to
take the spin that's tossed their
way. Or are so caught up in their
own devious little fishing expe-
ditions that they cannot sepa-
rate the moss from the catch.
All's not lost, though and I
take comfort from a recent ini-
tiative that deserves much ap-
f commend the Centre for
Communication Studies of the
University of Guyana, which in
collaboration with the U.S.
Agency for International
Development's Guyana Demo-
cratic Consolidation and Con-
flict Resolution Project,
organised a two-week interna-
tional media training programme
for reporters here.
Twenty-seven reporters
graduated from the July 25-Au-
gust 5 course at which they
came face to face with crucial is-
sues of the trade, some perhaps
for the first time.
Co-ordinator of the Centre
for Communication Studies, Ms
Wanda Chesney, zeroed in on
some basics at the closing cer-
emony. .
The Guyana Chronicle on
Tuesday reported her as saying,
"In all the sessions focus was

on accuracy, balance, clarity,
standards and
professionalism.. .Forthe media

o here we go again
with another episode
of the opposition
PNCR complaining about
having no access to the
State media. For a start, that
Party is yet to define what it
means by "access." I don't
think the opposition is
speaking about coverage of
its events and positions by
the Guyana Chronicle and
NCN. Because they know
that this line would not hold.
However. I suspect that
what the PNCR Opposition
means by access is that all of its
television programmes including
Nation Watch must be aired
unedited. And also it must de-
termine what goes on NCN and
into the Guyana Chronicle.
These media entities have spo-
ken about their policies recently
and need no further elaboration.
I would just add that the pro-
fessional staff of these media
houses decide on content and
select events and issues for cov-
erage. And I make no apology
for the fact that State and Gov-
ernment-related issues and
events are given much coverage
and attention by the state me-
I hope the opposition

PNCR would noi expect any re-
sponsible editor to publish or
air libel and slander and misrep-
resentation of the facts. In man\

But there are certain myths,

sue, and these must be de-

also extensive coverage of the
PNCR's contributions in the

PNCR representatives are in-
vited to participate in panel dis-
cussions and make comments on

REALITY 2: The PPP does
not receive special coverage and
only gets normal coverage of
statements and events. Like any
other party and organization it
has to buy airtime and space in
the state media as was recently
done for the PPP's 28th Con-
gress. The PNCR is free to pur-
chase airtime and this was done
recently on NCN for coverage
of a special event to mark the
late Forbes Bumham's death an-
niversary. Also, special broad-
casts by the PNCR Leader are
aired. In fact, the PNCR since
1999 owes NCN about $2M in
outstanding payments for adver-
tisements and other broadcast
time purchased. Any private
business would have demanded
that the client clears it backlog
before doing new business, this
was not invoked by the state
media entities. Also, the Guyana
Chronicle press prints the
PNCR news organ New Na-
MYTH 3: There was an
agreement by the Government
to give equal airtime to the
REALITY 3: The May 2

2003 joint communique signed
by President Jagdco and Mr.
Corbin is clear: "'Equitable ac-
cess (based on Parliamenltary
representation) to the state-
owned media by all Parliamen-
tary Parties (as distinct from
government) would be instituted
without undue delay." This
means that the PNCR cannot
demand the same type and
amount of coverage as the Gov-
ernment. The time it gets is in
relation to the PPP, GAP-WPA
and ROAR, the other parlia-
mentary parties. That was
agreed to and signed by Mr.
Corbin. The PNCR terminated
the constructive engagement
process before an agreement was
reached on time and space-allo-
cation in the state media for po-
litical parties. Even in the ab-
sence of an agreement, the state
media do give news coverage to
opposition issues based on the
judgment of the editor-ship. It
is important to note that the
state media giving due promi-
nence to government projects
and positions is a form of pub-
lic accountability i.e. to inform
the population on how govern-
ment is spending taxpayers
MYTH 4: The Govern-
ment dominates the media
REALITY 4: There are 21
television stations in Guyana.
Only one is state-owned. There
are three daily newspapers and
two weekend newspapers.
Again, only one is state-owned.
There is a radio monopoly but

this will end once the Broadca
Bill is tahled and passed in ti
National Assembiy. (Th
PNCR objected to the draft Bi
and withdrew from talks to ac
dress its concerns.) Signifi
cantly, the vast majority of th
television stations and public
tions are either outright oppo
nents of the Administration o
do not treat the government
fairly in its programming an(
reportage. The Government, ii
some instances, does not enjo:
the right to reply at some o
these media houses, and in oth
ers, has to pay to broadcast it'
public service-typi
programmes. If there is ahy en
tity that should be screaming,
inequitable access to the medi;
it is the Government. Any ob
jective viewer or reader will con
firm this.
The media today is free
Gone are the days when thi
state controlled the news ant
information flow. Not only i:
there a proliferation of private
media houses; the introduction
of the Internet has redefined th
national media landscape.
The PNCR is stuck i
that bygone era when i
government it issued edict'
shutting out total coverage o
the opposition and civi
society groups. It is time th
opposition PNCR stole
making baseless claims foi
political reasons or t
intimidate anyone. No oni
will take it seriously witl
this type of outdated an
futile 'cry-wolf' antics.

NDAY CHRONICLE August 14, 2005



- 1905

By Citizen Kampta Karran

(continued from last week)

white planters
who defended
ndentureship on the
rounds of labour
shortage, the Africans
ountered that the is-
ue was not so much
he shortage of a suit-
ble work force as it
as the need for sur-
lus labour so that the
lanters could continue
o depress wages and
ubvert the African
truggles for a living
The African opposition to
e immigrants, which eventu-
ly came to mean Indian, led to
very early contradiction be-
"een these two races. At times,
s Rodney [1981] informs us,
e African position against the
ndian became distorted. On
uch occasions the African
would adopt the white stereo-
pe of the Indian and argue that
heir group deserved more be-
ause they were more 'civilised'
han the Indian the yardsticks
f civilisationn' being the out-
vard trappings of European
clothing, language and general
eportment. At other times,
ey claimed that because they
ere here before the Indians and
because they were more cruelly
xploited their right to land and
their resources should be given
priority over that of the Indians
ho were more committed to
ndia than to Guiana. It should
e noted that by the 1880s
here was enough evidence to
demonstrate that many Indians
ad decided to make Guiana
heir homeland.

Indentureship not only al-
lowed the white planters to
have a surplus of cheap and re-
liable labour but because the
labouring population belonged
to different races an opportu-
nity was presented for them to
use the two principal races to
negate the efforts of the other
when it sought to challenge the
plantation order. Robert Moore
[1970] tells us that the Europe-
ans subscribed to the belief that
"the competing races ensured
social stability" of the plantation
system. We have seen how the
Amerindians and the Indians
were used against the Africans.
The Africans, in 1869, were
used in a similar manner. They
were recruited to quell the In-
dian protest for better wages
and working conditions. The
plantocracy refused to give in to
the Indian demands but decided
to give the African labourers the
price the Indians were asking
The editor of the pro-
planter newspaper the Colonist
rationalised the use of Africans
to suppress the legitimate aspi-
rations of the Indian labour force
and also for a permanent Afri-
can police body to engage in this
type of practice. We are told:
The necessity which existed
for the formation of a protective
force exists and will continue to
exist while the constitution of
our society remains as it is, and
while large bodies of Asiatic,
suspicious, excitable, revengeful
and of impulsive temperament
are located on our estates [see
R. Moore 1970: 242].
A new and permanent em-
ployment category was opened
up to the Africans who were re-
cruited to function at the lower
levels of the police force. This
employment gave them access
to the coercive apparatus of the
state. Thus began an institution
that was to cause much insecu-
rity among the other races that

lived in Guiana.
The Africans and some sec-
tions of the Christian church
saw indentureship as injurious
to the Africans. From the 1860s
there were those who
emphasised the relationship be-
tween Indian indentureship and
the depression in African com-
munities. Robert Moore reveals
that the Ministers of the Lon-
don Missionary Society used
their pulpits, meetings and
newspapers like Emery's Jour-
nal and the Congregational
Record to attack the monstrous
immigration scheme and '...
dwelt on the injustice of taxing
the Negroes to bring in com-
petitors to force their wages
down' ibidd.: 134].
The Indians were used not
only to depress wages but they
were also used as a replacement
labour force. Old African women
were replaced by Indian women
as cleaners of the mills ibidd.:
179]. Many planters were also
attempting to make their estates
independent of African labour
because of its seeming
unreliability. For instance the
'Negro weeding gangs had al-
most been completely replaced
by East Indian ones' ibidd.:
The defenders of African
interest sought to have In-
dian indentureship sus-
pended and in 1880 presented
a petition to the Court of
Policy to realise this end.
This petition presented the
Indians as "pampered coo-
lies", "burden to the commu-
nity", "costing more than
they gave in return" and as
"weakly East Indians" [ibid.].
However, there were those
who, by 1850, saw the Indians
as the backbone of the sugar in-
dustry and the colony. Reflect-
ing this view, Anthony Trollope
quoted a planter as saying "give
me my heart's desire in coolies
and I will make you a million

hogshead in sugar" [see
Trollope 1860: 172].
Many planters, like William
Russell, argued that the
pauperisation of the Africans
was caused by their indolence,
lack of ambition, hedonism and
poor management of property
[R. Moore op. cit.: 177]. Fur-
ther, others like Henry Mulligan
believed that the increase in
mechanisation of the sugar in-
dustry diminished the demand
for skilled artisans who were
usually Africans.
Marxist scholars like
Alexander [2000] and Jagan
[1997] advocate that economic
competition was at the heart of
racial conflict. Alexander ex-
"With the abolition of sla-
very and the importation of im-
migrant labour, it was the reali-
ties of competition between Af-
rican and Indian labourers; the
stabilising of wages by alleviat-
ing the labour shortage through
immigration; and the eventual
displacement of African labour
that led to the initial antagonism
between the Africans and the
Indians" [2000: 67].

Conflict also existed be-
tween the white planters and
the Indians labourers. On
November 15th, 1870, the pro-
planter newspaper, the Colo-
nist, carried a letter which
pointed out that "Love for the
buckra (White) does not
seem inherent in the East In-
dian". The Indian workers
were known to attack white
personnel and also to protest
against the plantocracy. On
occasions, members of the Af-
rican, Chinese and Portu-
guese communities would
rush to the rescue of the
white plantation personnel
when the representatives of
the plantocracy were at-
tacked by Indian plantation
labourers. For instance, in
1870 the Indians workers
threw the manager of Planta-
tion Vergenoegen into a
trench. Immediately, the Af-
ricans responded by beating
up the Indians.
In 1870, Governor Scott in
a dispatch reported that "the
Negroes and Chinese were vol-
untarily suppressing East Indi-
ans Riots throughout the coun-

try" ibidd.: 247]. Occasionally,
in the newspapers of latter half
of the nineteenth century, the
Africans and to a lesser extent
the Portuguese and Chinese
were presented as the defenders
of order.
On the other hand, the In-
dians and the Chinese were also
used to police the Africans.
Robert Moore related one such
occasion that occurred on the
Christmas day of 1875. The
manager of Plantation Toevlugt
summoned a band of hakia stick
bearing Indians to control a
group of African workers with
whom the manager had a wage
dispute. The Indians drove
away the African workers but
seized their leader and locked
him up. The bodyguard was a
Chinese man armed with knives.
Throughout the
nineteenth century, race
relations in British Guiana
were conflictual. In 1869, the
Royal Gazette reported that-
African drivers were known
to assault and cheat Indian
workers. To emphasise their

On ocaso of. 60hAni ersr o9ared.w rmmbrthi cnnato

By Norman Faria

ASKED if their efforts of intel-
ligence networks (the
"spies") had been instrumen-
tal in the Allied victory over
German forces in World War
II, the great Soviet master
spy in Europe, Leiba Domb
(aka Leopoli Trepper) re-
plied: "No battles and no wars
have ever been won by an in-
telligence network. They are
won by men !dying in battle.
The people who ;saved
Stalin grad (for
example) were the troops will-
ing to die among its ruins."
This month, we mark the
significant 60lh anniversary of
the end of World War II in
1945. We remember the valiant
contribution of the millions of
officers and rank and file sol-
diers from many countries who
fought or assisted in some way
to defeat German and Italian
fascism and Japanese militarism.
As detailed in the book
'Lest We Fo get: The Experi-
ences of World War II West In-

dian Ex-Service Personnel',
among these service men and
women were over 6000 volun-
teers from the then British colo-
nies in the Caribbean, in British
Guiana and British Honduras
(now Belize). Dozens gave the
ultimate sacrifice. Their names
are on war memorials in capitals
such as Georgetown.
They joined with men and
women from the Allied coun-
tries led by Britain (and other
Commonwealth countries such
as India and Canada), the then
Soviet Union and the U.S.
Militarily, these sons and
daughters of Guyana, Belize
and the English-speaking Carib-
bean islands helped smash the
fascists and militarists. They
met force with force and a dis-
ciplined organisational network..
Politically, they were defending
the basic democratic rights,
though limited, already won by
ordinary working people's
These men and
women served mainly as ground
crew with the Royal Air Force

in Britain, though some were
pilots and air crew. Some also
joined the Canadian and British
armies. The women joined the
ATS or the WAAF auxiliary
units. They came late in the war.
The book, written by
Guyana-born veteran Robert
Murray and\ published by
Hansib Publishing in the UK in
association with the
Nottingham West Indian Com-
bined Ex-Serviiemen's Associa-
tion, represent the reminis-
cences from a Selection of the
surviving veterans. That in itself

One of them is Ulric
Cross, whom Guyanese may
know as being apart of the
CARICOM team which con-
firmed the free and fair na-
ture of the 1992 Guyana elec-
tions. Cross, a Jamaican who
later became a lawyer, had
trained as a navigator.
Another Jamaican in the
RAF was Billy Straughan. He
would later play an active role

in the anti-colonial struggles in
the Caribbean and BG. He was
a Flying Officer and flew com-
bat missions over Europe.
There is a shortcoming
of Murray's book
which needs.looking at. It is the
way the inevitable racial ten-
sions, from the presence of
Afro-Caribbean service, people
(and those from the US forces)
in a majority white UK society,
are interpreted.
Murray quite rightly cites
examples of overt acts of racism
and racial discrimination against
the Black soldiers. But why not
give a wider view andi cite the
good things as well? !
The racial incidents oc-
curred mainly at social events,
at dances. Caribbqan and
Guyanese Black men, like their
white male comrades, went there
to seek female companionship
and sex. The women were
White. The women openly
fraternised with Black men, in
addition to the Whites, as pho-
tos at the dances readily show.
The British government
at the time didn't like it. An
advisory document to the
troops solemnly cautioned:
"White women should not as-
sociate with them".
True, sections of the
British White populace in the
early 1940s when the men
were stationed there may
have been influenced by the
ignorance and stereotyping
in the popular press.
Right wing political parties,
such as Mosley's openly fas-
cist party which had to be
banned and its leaders jailed
because of their treason, con-
tributed to tensions between
people of colour from the
colonies, including India, and

the majority White popula-
But there was also a wel-
come and understanding. The
Black servicemen were working
class folk and so were the White
women. Their interests and de-
sires were the same. Noted a
feature article in the'
relatively serious 'Sunday Tele-
graph' newspaper in the UK
(December 3, 1995 edition)
about the period: "Men of the
professional class...did not
want their wives and daughters
involved with Black men. But
the racial tolerance, openness
and decency of the common
people during the War eclipses
the prejudices of their (sic) bet-
Murray as" a historian is
also weak in another
area. Unaccountably, no White
Caribbean or Guyanese volun-
teers are portrayed or inter-
viewed. Hundreds of them, in-
cluding some East Indians,
from the Commonwealth
Caribbean and BG served in
Allied forces during the War.
Some gave their lives. This is
in addition to the sterling
contribution of troops from
India and Africa. The highest
percentage of bravery medals
in terms of nationalities were
in fact from India with the
Gurkas predominating. In fair-
ness to Murray, he may have
excluded the contribution of
White and Indian service people
in his emphasis on ground crew
personnel where the minimally
The book also lacks a gen-
eral overview, or framework, to
situate the contribution of Car-
ibbean and BG service people. It
does not portray how the
volunteers fitted in with the

wider offensive and ultimate de-
feat of fascism and militarism.
Virtually nothing is mentioned
of the mighty, contribution of
the then Soviet government and
people. As mdst serious histo-
rians write, the Red Army of
the then socialist Soviet Union
turned back Hitler's armies at
the Soviet city of Stalingrad on
the Eastern front. The Red
Army, defending the right of all
races to live in peace and pros-
perity, then drove the Germans
westwards bac~ to Berlin. With-
out such victories from the
East, it is probable that Europe
and Britain would be under Ger-
man dictatorship and puppet
regimes for many years after
World War II. All people of
colour, including Black and In-
dian people therein, would cer-
tainly have sAffered the fate of
Jews, socialists/Communists,
progressive Christians, Gypsies
(who were of East Indian de-
scent), homosexuals, and others
who did not measure up to the
fascist ideal 'f the "blond, blue
eyed Aryan!'. They were all
put into ovens or otherwise
summarily executed.
On Sunday, .August 21, it
will be great honour for me to

Dr. Bacchus pointed out
that with respect to the recent
Guyana Watch visit, a team of
doctors came here and went to
Regions Two, Three, Four and
Six without any documentation
reaching the.MCG within ad-
equate time.
"The documents were sub-
mitted to the Council a mere
two days prior to their arrival
and it was discovered that they
were not notarised. The
organisation was accordingly in-
formed. By telephone conversa-
tion, it was agreed that if the

doctors were in possession of
their original, practice licences,
the Council would register them.
Upon arrival, this condition
could not have been met. In-
stead, we were again presented
with faxed copies of ihecreden-
tials for the doctors which were
stamped with the seal of a local
Justice of the Peace and Com-
missioner of Oaths to Affidavits
and which did not state that
they were a true copy of the
original," Dr. Bacchus stated.
He added that the team pro-
ceeded to hold clinics and treat
patients in violation of the
statutory requirements, and the
MCG views this action by the
organisation as contemptuous
and disrespectful.
"We will bring this matter
to the attention of the licensing

tor in 2005, domestic demand
will probably make a significant
contribution to growth this year.
New investment opportunities
have started to appear in many
countries amidst ongoing growth
and "in a context of high external
competitiveness, current account
surplus and a primary fiscal sur-
plus," states the report.
The slow but sustained re-
covery in the wage bill, as em-
ployment and wages have both
risen, has boosted private con-
sumption. A substantial current
account surplus has also helped,
supporting a rise in domestic
demand without producing ten-
sions in the external sector, at
least in the short term.

In 2004, the regional balance
of payments current account
posted a surplus for the second.
year running, this time of
US$17.9 billion, or 0.9 per cent
of regional GDP.
Exports rose (22.8 per cent)
much more than in 2003 (8.8 per
cent), while imports did likewise
(21.7 per cent), completing the
recovery that began the previ-
ous year, after the decline in
2002. Current transfers (work-
ers' remittances) rose by US$6.4
billion (18.3 per cent).
Net foreign direct invest-
ment (FDI) rose 38.4 per cent
over low amounts posted in
2003, to reach US$43.9 billion,
while financial capital outflows
reached US$45.2 billion.
External debt accounts for 37.5
per cent of GDP for the 19 coun-
tries, an improvement over last
December's rate of 43 per cent The
region will probably post another

balance of payments current ac-
count surplus of around 0.7 per
cent of GDP in 2005, according to
trends in the early months.
The positive macroeconomic
performance posted in 2004 will al-
low a significant improvement in
countries' fiscal accounts. As 2004
closed, central governments had
achieved primary surpluses that,
using a weighted average, had
reached 2.2 per cent of GDP, up
from 1.6 per cent in 2003.
During the first five months
of 2005, the real extra-regional
exchange rate fell by 4.2 per
cent (representing appreciation
for regional currencies) over De-
cember 2004. Real appreciation
against extra-regional currencies
occurred across the board, af-
fecting South America, Central
America, the Caribbean and
In 2004, ongoing low inter-
est rates, a significant rise in the
region's national income thanks
to improved terms of trade (5.3
per cent) and the gradual in-
crease in the wage bill favoured
investment and consumption
decisions. As a result, domestic
demand rose 6.3 per cent, driven
by a rise in total consumption
(4.9 per cent), with private con-
sumption rising 5.6 per cent and
public consumption up 1.2 per
cent, and significant investment
growth. This last was the stron-
gest performer in domestic de-
mand, rising 12.2 per cent, while
gross fixed investment increased
12.7 per cent, a recovery after
several years during which this
aggregate was declining.
In Latin America and the
Caribbean, inflation in 2004
slowed and by December had
accumulated an annual rise of
7.3 per cent, down from 8.5 per

cent in December 2003. In the
first five months of 2005, the
main trends from the second se-
mester of 2004 continued.
In 2004, the region's unem-
ployment rate fell from 10.7 per
cent to 10.0 per cent. This decline
favoured 800,000 people, since ur-
ban unemployment fell from 19.4
million to 18.6 million. The decline
in unemployment reflected the rise
in regional employment rates, from
52.2 per cent to 52.8 per cent of
the working age population. Most
new jobs were in the wage-paying
sector and in many countries for-
mal employment rose.

Evaluating Economic
Conditions in the Region
According to ECLAC, the cur-
rent rising phase reveals some char-
acteristics that point to differences
from the past and that could influ-
ence future trends in the economies
of LatinAmerica and the Caribbean.
Reasons for some optimism in-
clude long-term trends in interna-
tional trade, which are favourably
influencing the terms of trade, the
accumulation of international re-
serves, improvements in external
debt indicators, and stronger fiscal
Nonetheless, some risks
persist, including the possibility
of a traumatic correction to some
existing imbalances in the inter-
national economy and the dan-
ger of.a protectionist backlash,
the costs of simultaneously
monitoring foreign exchange
and monetary targets, and the
high income elasticity of im-
ports. As a result and to main-
tain and increase growth rates
and thereby improve labour and
social indicators, the region
must improve signals for stimu-
lating saving and investment.

vate entities.
In October, 2004, the TCL
Group launched its partnership
with the non governmental
organisation, Habitat for Hu-
manity Guyana.
An agreement was made for
the cement company to supply
more than 2 000 bags of TCL
cement for the construction of
17 homes throughout Habitat's
self-help housing centres during
the 2004/2005 Habitat year.
Thursday's ceremony
marked the "manifestation of
our investment" Mr. Nobie told
the gathering.
He said that the Group is
excited by the creative concept
and long term benefits of the

project since it not only deliv-
ers tangible structures but gives
participants a greater apprecia-
tion of self and community.
According to Nobie, the re-
lationship with Habitat gives
the inner satisfaction of know-
ing that they are making a mean-
ingful contribution towards the
eradication of homelessness in
the region.
He further added that the
TCL Group is very committed
to the philosophy 'One Carib-
bean... One Company'.
"We believe that as a Car-
ibbean company, it is our re-
sponsibility to foster and en-
hance the real wealth of our re-
gion to be found in the devel-
opment of our people", Nobie

The TCL Group has been
supplying cement for construc-
tion in Guyana for some 1'6
years and is currently in the
process of establishing a
US$6M bagging facility.
He said that the investment
in Guyana fits perfectly with
its mission to help regional na-
tions prosper and grow stron-
ger through the partnership be-
tween government and private
Also present at the cer-
emony were Mr. Shaik
Baksh, Minister of Housing
and Water, Mrs. Sheila
George, Chairperson of Habi-
tat For Humanity Guyana
and Mrs. Jennifer Massiah,
National Coordinator of
Habitat for Humanity.

Latin America and the Carib-

gions that are said to be close
to universal primary school
enrolment, with a 96 per cent
net enrolment for the joint
region in 2001/2002 as com-
pared to 86 per cent in 1990/
This is according to the most

The Millennium Develop-

of Goal 2 of the MDGs
(Achieve universal primary edu-

progress in primary school

Latin America and the Caribbean
and South-East Asia, where
over 90 percent of children reach

to remain in school. In second-
ary enrollment the LAC region
also went against the norm for
the rest of the world, with more
girls than boys being enrolled.
Women in the LAC region also
compare favourably to those in
the developed world, with 44
per cent having access to non-
agricultural wage employment,
as compared to 46 per cent in
the developed world.
While there is no region of
the world where women have
achieved parity in terms of their
share of parliamentary seats,
Latin America and the Caribbean
still outpaces most other regions
with a 19 per cent representation
as compared to 21 per cent for
the developed world and 16 per
cent for the world as a whole.
In the ared of Goal No.1
(Eradicate extreme poverty and
hunger), statistics for 2001 sug-
gest that 9.5 per cent of the
population of the region is liv-
ing on less than US$1 per day,
as compared to 11.3 percent in
1990, while 10 per cent suffer
from chronic hunger and seven
per cent of children under age
five are underweight (suffering
from malnutrition, infectious
diseases or lack of care). With
poverty and child mortality be-
ing closely linked, the statistics
show that for Goal 4 (Reduce
child mortality), in LAC in 2003
there were 32 deaths per 1000
live births in children under five.

U NITED Nations Secretary General, Mr. Kofi Annan, has called on
youths to make their voices heard in the fight against poverty, and
work together to achieve the UN Millennium Developments Goals.
In a message to mark World Youth Day observed Friday, Mr. Annan pointed to the millions of
young people living in poverty.
"I know you will not accept a world where others die of hunger, remain illiterate and lack human
dignity," Annan said.

The full text of the message reads:
"Today, there are almost three billion people in the world under the age of 25. More than half a
billion of them live on less than two dollars a day. More than 100 million school-aged children are
not in school. Every day, almost 30,000 children die of poverty. And 7,000 young people become
infected with HIV/AIDS.
All that can be changed, if we work together to meet the Millennium Development Goals.
The Goals were adopted five years ago by all the world's Governments as a blueprint for build-
ing a better world in the 21st century. They represent a partnership.
Poor countries have pledged to govern better, and invest in their own people through health care
and education.
Rich countries have pledged to support them, through aid, debt relief, and fairer trade.
Next month, Heads of State and Government will meet at the United Nations for the 2005 World
Summit expected to be one of the largest gatherings of leaders ever. I believe we will have a once-
in-a-generation opportunity to address some of the most pressing challenges of our era.
Leaders need to be reminded of their promise to translate the Millennium Development Goals
into reality. That is where young people like you come in. Your voices can hold leaders to those
pledges- at the 2005 Summit and beyond.
I know you will not accept a world where others die of hunger, remain illiterate and lack human
So please make sure your voices are heard. Make sure your generation is the one to
defeat poverty."

'The crowds in the street
comprised dock workers,

who were generally referred to
as 'centipedes'. The street
demonstrators even included
some respectable middle class
citizens' ibidd.: 201].
Pawnbrokery, jewellery and
other businesses were looted
and members .of the ruling
classes were beaten and/or
terrorised. For instance the
Governor, the Hon. Hodgson,
was terrorised in his office.

need to criticise their violence
against other working class
women who were struggling to
make a living in a hostile eco-
nomic environment. Further, it
would appear that he condoned

their violence against the Portu-
guese. Perhaps, working within
the Marxist framework, he saw
these actions as revolutionary
but this does not diminish their
inhumane nature.
The middle class African
and Mulatto men who were re-
cruited in the Militia refused the
call to arms to defend the city
and to restore law and order.
Many joined the African work-
ing classes in the streets, repre-
sented them in the courts, spoke
on their behalf to the governor
and championed their cause in
the local newspapers especially
in the Creole which was run by
the Hon. Patrick Dargan who

European parentage.

classes sought to distance
themselves from the violence
and disorder. For example, A.
A. Thorne denounced the
looting, stoning and other
forms of violence as the work
of the 'Rabble' and the 'Cen-

this form of disassociation
was due to 'the stilted moral-

competitive football, and

as early as the 6th minute,
thanks to John Marcus, but
Carlyle levelled the score for
Rangers 14 minutes later.
Seven minutes into the sec-

tackle on Uprising's captain
Prince Wharton which left him
with a broken shin bone, was

Wayne Joseph for unsportsmanlike behaviour.
The game, which started forty minutes late due to the late
arrival of United's players, was also poor in quality. Beacon's
.oal hungry forward Nigel Denny, who missed no fewer than
ihree clear-cut opportunities in the opening fifteen minutes, can-
celed out Unitd's lead in the 36th minute

GOING down: Trinidad & Tobago about to lose possession as a swarm of Guyana's play-
ers close in.

Guyana beat T&T

after 20

years to cop second place

By Isaiah Chappelle
AFTER more than two de-
cades, Guyana inflicted a
championship defeat over
Trinidad & Tobago, yesterday,
at the National Park.
Playing as a well-coordi-'
nated unit; the local team beat
the Twin Island Republic 29-21
to place second in the Southern
Caribbean Rugby Champion-
ship and Rugby World Cup
qualifying series, while Barbados
expectedly hammered St Lucia
81-0, to claim the crown.
Winger Claudius Butts and
Kevin McKenzie scored two
tries each of the five Guyana
tries, with Richard Staglon reg-
istering the other. Captain
Theodore Henry and Ryan.
George had one conversion each.
Brendon O'Farrell- was ac-
curate, kicking two drop goals
for Trinidad & Tobago and a
penalty, while Graeme Alkins
and Filicien Guerra had one try
each, and Alkins a conversion.
Guyana were all over
Trinidad & Tobago forcing a pen-
alty within two minutes of play '
but it was not scored. However,
the team opened, with seven
points through McKenzie's try
and a good conversion by Henry.
McKenzie received a nice pass
from the centre, faked the de-
fence then slipped through be-
tween two players and raced ten
metres for the try.
Trinidad & Tobago settled

and no more points materialised
for Guyana before O'Farrell
kicked to goal on the run from
about centre of the 22-metre
line, scoring the drop goal in the
31st minute.
The visitors crept closer to
Guyana's score, cutting it to one
point after getting a penalty from
about 15 metres at the left, six
minutes later, taken by O'Farrell.
Three minutes into in-
jury time Butts who had a
very good game collected the
ball, kicked forward by Henry
from a Guyana scrum, and
dashed home for the try. They
took halftime leading 12-6.
.Within two minutes of the
second half, McKenzie com-
pleted'his double try, racing to
the line to down the ball, kicked
forward by Henry. Ryan
Hinckson, however, was not ac-
curate with the conversion.
Again Trinidad & Tobago
cut the lead with another drop-
goal by O'Farrell from 15 metres
out five minutes later.
By 14 minutes in. Gu\ ana''
game was one of team pla.,
highlighted when Henry pa--.ed,
the ball to McKenzie, who
found Staglon and he raced the
five metres to the try line:
George was good with the con-
version and the lead went to 24-
Trinidad & Tobago were still
dominating in the maul and two
minutes later, they pushed five
metres to the try line for Alkins

... Barbados claim crown

to.get the try, moving to 14.
Guyana still controlled the
run of play and .37 minutes in,
Butts finished a fine piece of
passing play, which started
with fly half Christopher Singh
at centre. He collected the ball
at the left wing and raced 22
metres to the southern try line
STrinidad & Tobago regi.s-

THE Guyana Defence Force
(GDF) became the last team
to advance to the quarter-fi-
nal stage of the replayed
President's Cup football tour-
nament after a one-nil win
over Victoria Kings on Friday

night at the GFC ground.
Played before a sprinkling
of spectators the Army out-
muscled their opponents in an-
other scrappy affair that lacked
imagination and will now meet
Pele in the quarter-final. The
game's winning goal came off the
right boot of Royston Morrison

in the 30th minute of play when
he fired from just inside the area
on the attacking right, to beat an
out-of-position goalkeeper at
the. far post.
Meanwhile, the first
match of the GFL's Premier
League which preceded the
GDF/Kings clash ended in-a

i--] w

1-1 stalemate to give both
Thomas United and Beacon a
point each. United took the
lead in the 25th minute when
veteran Chris Barnwell
converted from the penalty
spot after Shawn Morris was

WE REACH OUR RIVER CAMP for the night, a fresh. -thatched beban or open
shelter strung with hammocks. Judy. 26. has appeared out of the woods with provi-
sions for supper in the event we don't catch any fish with our hand-lines. A good
thing, too. Evemung descends and a full moon backlights the trees along the river, but
Gary has only managed to hook two small piranha. He appears jaded by the usual
tra eller's commotion over his notonous catch.
"Really. the piranha that eat people are rare. We don't have them here. Of course,
Sif you are bleeding when you go swimming in the river..."
It's not something we plan to do soon. We listen as the daybirds retire before the
advance of their nocturnal relatives, a series of battle-whoops and melancholy ca-
dences at the treble end of the avian register. The dark forest is quickemng to unseen
life. even the giant trees seem to be talking among themselves. A leonine roar begins,
and grows louder, like the brass furnaces of the Apocalypse rumbling to life.
Howler monkeys.
"Those are red howlers," Gary notes. "the black ones sound different"
We gratefully dig into Judy's "rainforest chop suey" noodles with chicken and
local vegetables, a handful of raw hot bird peppers and sip fresh lemonade as the
full moon makes Its ascent o er the treeline and bathes the nverbed in cold silver. We
can see every rock and its shadow. Of the two. the shadows seem more real. The
heroic giant boulders recall an age when this terrain was the estuary of a mighty
river, long before the Andes rose in the west. Now a familiar bird sounds its nostal-
gic cry from deep within the forest:
Whip-poor-will, whip-poor-will.
"This bird is from our country," we proudly inform Gary, who nods doubtfully.
In fact the singer is a tropical nightjar, a cousin of our native species
and to the non-birdwatcher, identical in its mottled coat of brown and
grey. But what is native about any migratory creature? We lie awake
for hours in our hammocks, each of us draped in an illusory gauze of
mosquito netting, half-dreaming. The Burro- Burro gurgles its way

Brown Pelicans:
The Brown Pelican is a large bird that lives along the coast of the Atlantic Ocean that has a long, straight bill -
with an enormous pouch attached to it. This pouch holds three times as much as its stomach can. The pelican
uses the pouch to catch fish, feed its young, and cool itself. The Brown Pelican is about 4 feet (1.2 m) long,
weighs roughly nine pounds (4 kg), and has a 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 foot (2 to 2.3 m) wingspan. These birds are
carnivores and hunt during the day eating mostly fish.


Sunday Chronicle Auigust 14,2005

Well guys. This is the final week of Lessons for
Life. I have thoroughly enjoyed writing them over
the past four weeks and from my worldwide
emails, so have many of you. Hopefully, you have
been saving the pages and will keep these lessons
as inspiration whenever things get ruff.


As we rush around spinning all our plates and trying to find
time to relax it is easy to start to take life ultra-seriously. When
This happens, our irritation levels shoot sky high and before we
know it we are feeling annoyed and upset at the slightest incident.
When you next find yourself getting wound up over something, just
stop and ask yourself this question: Does it really matter? If it re-
all) does, then get to grips with what must be done (appropriate
action is a fine antidote to stress).
However, very often we allow ourselves to become worked up
about something that really doesn't matter, and then our irritation
can quickly lead us into negativity and feelings of low self-esteem.
Your daughter dropped chocolate on her dress; the house isn't
perfectly tidy; a work colleague didn't do the task you asked her
exactly the way you would have preferred it to be done. Is it worth
making a point? Is it worth getting upset?
When we are feeling good about ourselves, these minor details
are unimportant. When we are feeling low, the small things really
seem to matter. The next time you feel your stress levels rising:
Ask yourself, Does it really matter? If the answer is no, then re-
mind yourself that this isn't important and that it's not worth get-
ting upset over.
Let it go and move on.

Lessons to learn: Let go of minor irritations and keep your stress
levels down.

order to dJo : othiing and to b6 sething. Even if youi cn orily man-

age ten minutes a day this will be enough.
Dedicate this time to being. Sit quietly and alone, turn off all
electronic distractions and close you eyes in silence. Expect noth-
ing, just experience yourself. If you have never done this before it
can be quite a shock: noise, feelings, thoughts (especially thoughts)
are calling for your attention and ten minutes can feel like hours.

Sherry Bollers-Dixon

Stick to this, learn to ignore you internal chatter (it never stops so
just let it go). These ten minutes a day are dedicated to being. Do
this for a week and make a note of what happens and how you
Get used to time alone just doing nothing and you will find
yourself feeling more relaxed and at ease.

Lessons to Learn: We are called human beings for a reason.


Have you ever tormented yourself with such unanswerable ques-
tions as:
Why doI always get the bad luck?
How comeI'm such a loser?
Why can't someone give me a break?
When will my life start to take off?
Why do I always have such lousy relationships?

Such questions lead to the pain of helplessness and frustration
and low self-esteem. Is there a question like this that you keep ask-
ing yourself over and over again, which tortures you endlessly and
doesn't seem to have an answer? Think of such a question as a
wrong door for you to go through.

Exercise My wrong doors
Make a list of any negative and critical questions that you ask
yourself when you are in the low self-esteem loop. Reflect this list
and the feelings that you have when you question yourself in this
Now consider this: how many times do you need to ask your-

self a self defeating and unproductive question before you can stop
and realise that this is a wrong door for you?
When you next find yourself looking low self-esteem in the eye,
just stop and remember that you can always change your responses;
you don't have to go down that well-worn path of negativity. Our
habitual patterns have been learned and they can be unlearned. Get
out of the self-blame game and stop punishing yourself. Let your-
self off these self-defeating hooks and nurture your positive self-
belief. You can do this: you only need to think you can!

Lesson To learn: Give yourself a break, and another one and
another one

A lot of people often say that they never seem to get what
they want: life treats them badly and people treat them badly, so
how can they feel good about themselves?
Well, we can only get what we want if we ask for what we
want. This may seem obvious and yet we often don't ask for what
we want because we don't always say what we mean. Have you
ever had a conversation like this?

YOU: (wanting to go out to an Indian restaurant) Let's eat out

YOU: Where do you want to go?

PARTNER: I don't care.

YOU: Well let's decide on somewhere.

PARTNER: I don't care, wherever you want.

YOU: No, you decide.

PARTNER: OK, let's go for a pizza.

YOU: OK. (As usual, I never get my own way.)

Next time you don't get what you want, check that you asked
for it clearly. Did you say what you meant or did you hold back
for some reason? Start saying exactly what you mean and asking
for what you want. Your feelings of self-respect v ill increase, and
you will have much more chance of getting what you want.

Lesson to learn: Say what you mean and mean %hat you say
and your life will become much simpler.

My husband and
I have been
married 18
years. We had a won-
derful life together and
raised an extraordinary
daughter, who just
turned 17. About a year
ago.I began feeling we
simply coexisted.
I must say I greatly admire
and respect my husband he's
been an honest and upstanding
person...no abuse or neglect is-
sues. But when we spoke
awhile back about our just plod-
ding along, my husband said he
didn't think he could change if
we saw a counsellor.
Within a month I resolved
if he wouldn't change or seek
counselling, what, then, was the
-point our marriage was over..I
asked for a divorce. Shortly
thereafter my husband moved
out. We both expressed how
much we love each other and
how painful this is. We've
cried, embraced, and supported

each other.
My problem is this: as soon
as he moved out I realized I
made a horrible mistake. There
are days I feel I simply can't ex-
ist without my husband, and
I'm having difficulty dealing
with the profound grief of los-
ing my life partner. I believe if
pride could be set aside, we
could work this out.
The other problem is:
within two weeks of moving out
(and two days after he said, "I'll
always love you") my husband
began an affair with a friend he's
known for years. He is deeply
religious and vehemently op-
posed to adultery. I am com-
pletely floored. We are not even
legally separated.
When I confronted him, he
easily admitted his infidelity
saying how lonely he was. I feel
he may have been-so hurt he
struck out in the one way he
knew would hurt me most. I can
overcome his infidelity because
I love him so dearly, and I want
us to. see a counsellor together.

I've been with my boyfriend three years. Within six months
we moved in together. I thought he was the man I would
spend the rest of my life with. A year into our relationship
he said he wanted to marry me. Needless to say I was
A couple of days later he said he didn't have the money to
give me the ring I deserved, but within a year we would be at
least engaged. So I dropped the subject, assuming he was being
truthful and thinking he was so sweet to want that for me. Now
I can't even bring up the subject without him getting angry. I
am doubting everything about myself now.
Angel, he made a proposal of a proposal. What did it get
him? Everything. You spent a year, expecting at any moment,
the proposal he proposed. What were you doing? Acting like

S OME time ago, I
was Head of\the
Department ; of
Oral and Maxillo aCial
Surgery at the Public
Hospital Georgetown. I
did a statistical
research on the: cases
presented there. With
trauma accounting to
92 per cent of the
patients attending the
clinic, damage to the
mandible or lower jaw
was and still is the most
common injury seen at
the clinic.
The mandible is one of the
strongest bones of the human
body and requires a frontal blow
of 425 pounds force to be frac-
tured at its weakest point. It
however, has a very prominent
position on the face and due to
its anatomical position it is fre-

quently traumatised.
Anatomically, the mandible
comprises the following areas:
the condylar process (conneat-
ing it to the skull), coronoid
process (which holds ligh-
ments), the angle, body,
parasymphsis area (side), the
symphysis (mid line) and dento'
alveolar component (where the'
teeth are located).
Some of these areas are
weaker and are hence injured
more frequently when compared
to the others. The area involved
in the injury also depends upon
the type and velocity of the im-
pact that causes the trauma.
The information used from pa-
tients is as follows: personal de-
tails (age and sex), etiology
(cause) of the injury, pattern of
the injury (unilateral, bilateral,
or involving more than one area)
and site of mandible fractured.
The majority of the pa-
tients who sustained the in-



: >
juries were in the age group
2t-,9 years. The mean age of
the patients was 31years with
standard deviation of 14.07
Meairs and a standard error of
1.44 years. The cause of the
fractures has been
categorised as assaults, falls,
Sporting injuries and motor
vehicularr accidents.
SThe age of the patients pre-
Snted with mandibular frac-
tures ranged from a six-year-old
boy to an 88-year-old female.
*However, the majority of the
patients were young males. In
this study, the most common
causative factors leading to the
disturbance of the mandibular
skeleton were assaults followed
by falls, vehicular accidents and
sporting injuries. Eighty three
per cent of all fractures result-
ing from personal violence were
facial. The trauma sustained due
to interpersonal assault is the
result of low velocity impact

ing it one side. The angle of the
mandible thus comes in the path
of the blow and as the jaw
changes its contours in this re-
gion and since it is relatively thin
from the side it breaks easily.

Reading and You

When you read with ease so that words, phrases,
clauses and sentences soon get connected and
allow you scope to query what the writer is say-
ing, you are on your way to successful and reward-
ing reading.

You can then probe the writing for hidden meaning. Hid-
den meaning is deeper meaning most often found in
specially written phrases. To find deeper meaning you
need to apply deeper thinking. Do you know that read-
ing is a thinking process? Yes, it is.

You may even want to disagree with what you are
told by the writer (because you have additional in-
formation, maybe), but doing that is going beyond
the boundaries of the passage.

Let us look at a kind of reading called "reading be-
tween the lines."

When an author writes a story he does not want
to fool you or confuse you. He wants you to un-
derstand everything he writes. He also wants to
earn your interest and let you have an opinion about
,~what you read. In doing so he tries to make you
rrnm pictures in your mind.

But an author can have different ways of writing.
An author can choose to be straightforward at
times. At another time he can write to encourage
you to use your higher order reading skills.

The two sentences below express the same
thought. Read them aloud.

1. "Don't be so stubborn, Jennifer," said Mrs. Davis.
"You're always very unwilling to comply with in-

2. "Don't be such a mule, Jennifer," said Mrs.
You 're always making a fuss."

In the first sentence the writer said exactly what he
meant. The words were very clear and the mean-
ing was plain.

In the second statement however, the meaning
was not so simply put. In this statement the writer
used words that he did not mean. Jennifer was
not really a mule; nor did she resemble one. She
was just an ordinary girl that had her own opinion.
She was not making stubborn movements like a
mule. She was just being self-opinioned.
Just why did the writer make these statements?
He knew that his readers would not misunder-
stand. That's why.

Maybe he wanted his readers to think up pictures
of a girl that was stubborn. Such pictures make
reading very interesting. As you learn more and
.more about reading between the lines, you will find
yourself receiving more from your
iral reading.

Itos Exercise
oes By reading between the lines, decide
Ila what is really meant by each of the
words or phrases in italics. Several
)es meanings are listed after each sen-
les tence. Choose the best one.

1. You can never trust him. He's a
aes wolf in sheep's clothing.
He howls like a wolf.
He wears woolen clothes.
He looks like a wolf, but he dresses well.
He is mean and cunning, but he pretends to be
meek and innocent, like a sheep.
He eats like a wolf, but doesn't get any spots on
his clothing

2. "We'// stand by you whenever you need us."
We'll serve you.
We'll wait alongside you.
We'll be ready to help.
We'll be near you.
We'll hide by you.


Use your dictionary for this exercise.
For each numbered sentence, use context clues
to determine the meaning of the word in bold print.
Then from the list of synonyms at the bottom,
choose the synonym that could replace the bold
printed word. Write the synonym in brackets after
the sentence.

1. The police arrested a group of people involved
in a conspiracy to overthrow the government.
( .,-- *, i *. .
2. MN4 dyl '~)(e Votop dancers will vie for the
.. .. .. .. . . .. .

3. The villain's influence is insidious: He creeps
into your confidence before you realize it.
( )

4. The shampoo makes dull hair more lustrous.
( )

5. Eva's hair is not really auburn; it is more of a
copper colour. ( )

6. Sandra's habit is to leave home fifteen minutes
later than she should, so she is invariably late to
class. ( )
7. Yvonne does not care one whit about the feel-
ings of others. ( )

8. Mayor Wilkins viewed the garbage dump with
repugnance. ( )

9. Will the deep blue of the shirt complement or
clash with the lighter blue of the jacket?
( )

10. Once a politician's reputation is tarnished; he
or she will find it hard to get re-elected.
( )

The list of synonyms: always, reddish, stained,
shiny, plot, compete, subtle, concerned, jot, suit.
(Use words from the list with the sentences above.)

in drawing a conclusion you are- behaving very
much like a detective who"examines clues to find
the solution to a mystery. In drawing a conclusion
you consider your life experiences as well as the
actual details or facts with which you are provided.
Try the following excerpts:

I breakfasted this morning at nine, and after
glancing through the morning paper, I proceeded
to let my mind wander in the hope that I might
chance upon some subject for my pencil.
The room, though door and windows were
open, was oppressively hot, and I had just
made up my mind that the coolest and most
comfortable place in the neighbourhood would
be the deep end of the public swimming pool
when the idea came.
I began to draw. So intent was I on my work
that I lefty my lunch untouched, only stopping
work when the clock struck four.

Based on this paragraph, what conclusion can you
draw about the narrator's subject from the pas-
sage? How did you come to this conclusion?

It was the man I had been drawing whose por-
trait lay in my pocket.
He sat there, huge, the sweat pouring from his
scalp, which he wiped with a red silk handkerchief.
But though the face was the same, the expression
was absolutely different.
He greeted me smiling, as if we were friends,
and shook my hand.
I apologised for my intrusion.
"Everything is hot and glary outside," I said.
"This seems an oasis in the wilderness.
"I don't know about the oasis," he replied, "but it
certainly is hot. Take a seat, sir!"
Based on this paragraph, what conclusions can
you draw about the huge man? How.did-yQuy come
to this conclusion?

Perimeter, regular polygon
How many metres of fencing would you need to go
around the horse corral at the bottom?

48 m

30 m

The perimeter of a shape is the distance around it.
You find the perimeter of the corral by adding the
lengths of the sides.
30 m + 48 m + 30 m + 48 m = 156 m
You need 156 m of fencing.

What is the perimeter of each picture?
24 cm

30 cm

19 cm

Look about the room you are in right now and mea-
sure the perimeter of straight sided objects such
as books, set squares, tiles & polygons.
Something to note: A regular polygon is one
whose sides are equal and whose angles are equal.
We can add to find the perimeter. We can also
multiply the number of sides by the length of one
side to find the perimeter.

Frank is going to make a tray by covering a piece of
wood with small tiles. Each tile is 1 square centi-
meter. How many tiles does he need?

We can find the area by multiplying.

Area = length X width
Area = 5 cm X 7 cm
35 square centimeters
Frank needs 35 tiles.

1. The zoo needs a new platform for the bird show.
Which would give more room, a platform 1 m by 3
m or a platform 2 m.by 2 m?
2. The zoo keeper wants to make an awning for the
ticket booth. The awning will be 3 m long by 2m
wide. How many square metres of awning mate--
rial are needed?
3. The monkey house and the ape house are side
by side. The monkey house is 8 metres long and 8
metres wide. The ape house is 9 metres long and
8 metres wide. How many square metres of roof-
ing are needed to cover both roofs/
4. The square post in the reptile house is 20 cm
wide. One snake can wrap itself around the post 2

HE better part of his first collection of
poems, 'Songs for a New Guyana', New
Dam, Canje, East Berbice, 1961, was
published in his own handwriting italic
handwriting which was very pleasing to the eye
and other senses and sensibilities. Such beautiful
penmanship developed a fluid conversation, a
peculiar intimacy between writer and reader. Cyril
Kanhai was trained in italic handwriting, lino-
cutting, pottery, stone carving, modelling and art
history on his way to obtaining a Teacher's
:Certificate from the Brighton College of Arts and
Crafts in 1956.
Ten years earlier, he gained his Primary School Teachers Cer-
tificate in Georgetown, carting off the highest award offered by the
Teachers Training College in the process.
Kanhai started his education at Albion Canadian Mission School,
the institution that produced J. W. Chinapen, another poet, potter,
painter and educator. There is a possibility that the two met at the
same. school in a teacher/student relationship.
During the period 1963 to 1964, he studied at the Inter Ameri-
can University of Puerto Rico gaining a B.A. in Art and M.A. in
Apart from being a teacher, Kanhai served the education sys-
tem of Guyana as Assistant Chief Education Officer Primary, and
Deputy Chairman Teachers' Service Commission.
Educator, painter, poet, Cyril Madray Kanhai was born in 1923
in Port Mourant, Corentyne, Berbice, going on to make all the cor-
rect choices and banding in the right associations during a short but
meaningful life;
He played significant role in the History and Culture Week of
1961, a body that was formed to bring about national cohesion by
getting peoples to know each other better through the exhibition of
their diverse literary and cultural heritages. He was a part of Inter-
national P. E. N. the Guyana Writers Group, fostering national
pride through imaginative literature. And he was also the President
of British Guiana branch of Italic Handwriting.
Kanhai was a very religious person, clad in Christian Theology
from his childhood, as was the case with many Indians at the time,
'clasped hands we kneel dear Lord this day/for the youths of Guyana
to pray/and where'er they may roving be/lead them, dear Father,
Home for Thee'.
The choices he made along the way were acknowledged
with many awards. In 1954, he won the Bain Gray Medal of
the British Guiana Teachers Association, named in honour of
the first man to make significant innovations to the local edu-
cation system.
In 1961; and again in 1962, he won the Burnham Gold Medal
for Art. Martin Carter said of Kanhai that 'some of his paintings
have attracted critical attention both in Guyana and abroad'. Ms.
Elfrieda Bissember, curator of the National Art Gallery stated that
Kanhai was 'a regular at national exhibitions'. Two of his pieces,
'Road Menders' and 'Green Land of Guyana', are presently on ex-
hibition at the National Art Gallery under the title 'Circa 1966' mark-
ing Guyana's 39th Independence Anniversary.
In 1968, the Guyana Writers Group published, 'An Anthology
of Voices of Guyana' edited by Donald Trotman in commemora-
tion of International Human Rights Year. Herein, Kanhai's poem,
'The Struggle' revealed that 'the brightest day is darkest night/for
'him whose feet are wrought in chain/...the darkest night is bright-
est day/for him whose feet are free to rove'. Significantly, this col-
lection marking such an occasion featured the poetry of five women
of 13 writers.
In 1969, he won the Jagan Gold Medal for literature with
his poem, 'So let us Serve', filled with patriotic fervour 'I will
work/though my limbs ache...to build my beloved country'.
* That same year, he released his second collection of poems,
'My New Guyana'. This was published by Sheik Sadeek who ,
had acquired a printing press and was using it effectively to.

though the gothic shadows.
Oogah-boogah says the mora
tree to the river, sharing a
dialogue that is many eons
old. The bird continues its
hypnotic chanting. We, too,
soon feel the warm green
fingers of the tropical night
stirring our imaginations,
conjuring up strange
thoughts, drawing out hidden
natures. Strange fantasies flit
by, following twisting,
riverine plots; and because we
are all suspended from the
same cross-pole, whenever
one persons' body shifts in the
night the others go bouncing
along too, like Monday's wash
strung out on a clothes-line.
Now a hoarse cry.rends the
The hammocks swing wildly
as one of us throws himself to
the ground. It's Don. Our un-
lucky photographer has forgot-
ten to scrub the hot bird pepper
from his fingers, and in his som-
nolence has inattentively rubbed
at his eyes. Now he must pay
the price.
"I can't see! Oww!"
"Don't worry," Gary says
soothingly as Don flails away,
grabbing for the water pitcher by
the kerosene lamp. "Our sha-
mans say this is a good way to
start a new life, to burn away the
old. If you want, you can also
rub the pepper into your ears."
Having found his salving wa-
ter, Don is too busy to make a
witty reply.
Gary gives him another
'Know why they call it bird
pepper, Don?"
"No, why?"
"Because birds eat it."
This bit of intelligence is met
with dumbfounded silence.
Then the hammocks begin
shaking again, as we fall into
mute, barely suppressed laugh-

HAVE LUNCH with three of
Surama's elders, Fred Allicock,
his son Sydney and the latter's
wife Veronica. Over a lunch of
fresh fish with lime and salad
(Gary's luck seems to have im-
proved) they do some informal
market research, asking us ques-
tions about their services to date.
The Surama village is
wellsituated on a grassy island of
savannah, there are few bugs and
long vistas, with the swank blue
Pakaraima Mountains skirting
the horizon far to the west. We
tell them not to worry, they
have all the infrastructure God
can give any tour operator, and
with the radiant jaguars thrown
in for good measure. Fred recalls
that water-tigers live in a lake
near our eventual destination
upriver, that they "shake the
bushes like a cyclone" and
present themselves as photo-
negatives of jaguars, only larger.
Then he says something about
wild bud' dogs, which he has
als ,never seen for himself.
Dwarf wolves, with stubby legs.

We take his account as en-
tertaining hyperbole, but it turns
out the improbable bush dog re-
ally does exist, running in packs
so discreet it is rarely seen by
Amerindian hunters. And there's
the thing with the Guyanese
rainforest: it does not stop at the
cold light of the rational. No, it
extends further; it has evolved
the power to lay down roots in
the human psyche, to thrive on
the deepest, unfurled imagina-
tion, collective and solitary.
Among other psychobiological
wonders, Gary is happy to
show us three common vines
nearby that are all potent aph-
rodisiacs. One, the monkey-lad-
der, is so risibly sexual a se-
ries of stiff woody bras, B-cups,
tied end to end that the forest
appears sentient and coy, as if
it enjoys playing these lewd
games with us.
Which is, of course, what
tropical shamans have claimed
all along. They say the local
plants have actually taught them
the effective uses to which they
may be put. When one consid-
ers that cassava, curare, quinine
and aspirin are all derived from
South American native usage and
that none are obvious commodi-
ties, this theory holds some wa-
ter. That afternoon we are shown
the elaborate process by which
the local Macushi women leach
the cassava starch of its bitter
toxins; the vanished Arawak
Taino people are generally cred-
ited with discovering this com-
plex technique. But how does
random trial-and-error explain
this precise mastery of such a
labyrinthine natural environ-
ment? Design implies higher
powers, even motive.
It's uncanny and it's liberat-
We say our goodbyes and
continue south by truck, towards
the Rupununi, the great
Guyanese savannah dominated
by the river of the same name, a
tributary of the Essequibo that
spills its banks 12 feet and more
during the rainy season in June,
flooding the flat countryside for
hundreds of miles. Now, in late
winter's aridity, the hard-tack
road grows dustier by the mile.
Wildlife collects around the nar-
row creek beds and silting ranch
ponds. A grey tapir weighing 200
pounds decides to race our truck,
then lurches off into the scrub
and stands there, panting heavily
with a pleased _expression crin-
kling his snout.
Two hours later, we pull
up to Rock View Lodge, a busy
compound established by an
enterprising Briton, Colin
Edwards, at the point where
the forest road opens up to the
continental sky and the view
is 80 miles one way and "81
the other." We are now just
four degrees north of the
equator, Colin tells us.
"Choose your sky: Orion's
this way, the Southern Cross
is that." He welcomes us to
his lodge with a frankly im-
pertinent limeade, the best
juice we have ever tasted; that
is, until he graciously offers
us a selection of wild cherry
and iced tangerine frappes,

like a satiated pasha admit-
ting foreign adventurers to his
seraglio. We tell him there re-
ally should be an annual com-
petition among the lodge op-
erators for these organic fruit
juices, and he appears to con-
sider the idea seriously.
"Now try this it's our
homemade tasso."
He holds out a length of
leathery bark for consideration.
In fact it's sun-dried beef,
like jerky but without addi-
tives except for rock salt. It
seems obvious that the richly
savoury tasso and robust lem-
onade provides all the nutri-
ents one could possibly need
in life, but Colin insists that
only several bottles of Banks
beer, served icy cold and date-
stamped last Monday, will
properly finish the job. Among
the other guests are two
young British scientists, Mat-
thew and Lisa, who are wrap-
ping up the latest phase of
their ongoing research project
into wetlands ecology. They
maintain that even 20 years of
computerized data-collecting
would barely hint at the un-
derlying complexity of the
Rupununi system. We are
growing excited by its limit-
less space; a sense of impend-
ing enthrallment rolls in
from the horizon. We're float-
ing in an vacillating oasis, the
middle of an unknown sea
that has dried out momen-
tarily, but will soon roar back
with the first flashes of May's
lightning. We spend the night
reading Victorian travellers'
accounts from Colin's library.
What's changed down through
the long years? Nothing, ex-
cept for the diesel generator,
which goes off promptly at 10
and floods the hut in inky


The next day it's another
two hours by washboard road
south through a scrubby steppe,
to Ginep Landing, a raw clay
ridge on the banks of the
Rupununi River and the jump-
ing-off point for our boat trip
into the savannah. Now the heat
of Guyana's interior beats down
on our truck; it rattles over the
dry creek beds and plunges us
into dusty, lifeless gullies. Black
smoke from three brush fires
mark a triangle that seems un-
comfortably tight, hemming us
in; but the sooty remains of old
fires show that these burn out
quickly, covering only a few
acres at a time.
More birds appear as we
near the river, an intaglio of white
egrets, grey hawks and black
vultures; the green foliage grows
hard and mineral. Bare roots hang
down from the trees like hairy
cords, waving futilely in the pal-
try breeze. They will appear
dead until the spring river over-
flows its bed, when they will se-
cure their host tree to the mov-
ing and newly-rich firmament.
We ascend the ridge and peer
down at the Rupununi.
"There's nothing here," Don
declares, waving at a coppery
sheet of sluggish water.
It's not true. A trio of
neotropical cormorants abruptly
springs into the brazen, over-
heated air; a caiman surfaces, an-
other rolls off its blindingly
white sandbar. The river is full
of coiling black reptiles, crea-
tures that proved stronger in the
end than whatever killed off the
Jurassic dinosaurs. These alliga-
tors probably still retain fond
folk-memories of that particular
feast. We gaze uneasily at each
other, the sense of being a tour-
ist faded completely miles back.
Now we are something else, and
the word victims comes to mind

..... \

but then a motorboat chugs into
view around the bend and dispels
the notion with new concerns.
"Why are they paddling if
they have a motor?" Don asks.
It's fair question, which
young Eddie McTurk, our host,
answers as he bids us aboard.
"The river's down a bit. We'll
have to get out and push occa-
We sense that this is the be-
ginning of our real trip and of
course such instincts prove right.
The two hours Edward has pro-
jected for our arrival at his late
grandfather's famous ranch, the
Karanambu Cattle Company,
have long since passed, and we
are still in the middle of the me-
andering river, hefting the alumi-
num craft over the sandbars arid
sliding it across half-submerged
deadfalls. Lots to look at, dur-
ing our exertions. The venerable
Johnson 15 putts against a tor-
pid current filled with exclama-
tory branches from which four
varieties of tropical kingfishers
launch their attacks. Herons de-
part for unknown shores as the
sun sinks low behind the sand
ridge. A green ibis reflects the
day's last rays as it skiffs west,
shimmering like raw silk. The
stars appear faintly in the sky,
outdone by Venus, and soon the
Milky Way floods its own
banks and spills across the in-
digo sky. Don recalls his summer
camp days with a few choruses
of Ninety-Nine Bottles, but
whatever boyhood sentiment he
seeks quickly vanishes with a
sweep of Eddy's flashlight
across the river's surface. Here's
a pair of fiery red eyes, and
there's another.
Six more pairs under this
shaggy, overhanging cliff. We
give up counting at 62 alligators,
and Edward, in an apparent ef-
fort to maintain our flagging en-

ergies, begins to catalogue the
river's other denizens.
"You've heard of the orifice
fish, right?"
"Right," we nod, thinking
it's a joke.
"Well, you have to watch
when you go swimming. It's a
fish that swims into your lower
orifice and pops out a single
barb and gets stuck in there."
We stare at the murky wa-
ter, wondering if this improbable
creature might slither up our
calves while we are standing
ankledeep in its element, strain-
ing at these gunwales. And how
does natural selection explain
that adaptation? We arrive at
Karanambu at eight in the
evening to a chorus of frogs as
the moonrise triumphantly lights
our way to the main ranch
house. The 22 miles upriver has
taken five hours. The staff makes
a fuss; trays of cold fruit juices
appear, each more exotic than the
last. We sleep like banshees af-
ter a night spent terrorizing the
countryside. The breezes at mid-
night blow cool and steady, and
the candle in our bungalow blows
out of its own accord.

DAUGHTER of Karanambu's
celebrated founder, Edward
"Tiny" McTurk Sr., appears for
breakfast dressed in a Thai silk
blouse and smart capri .pants
that would do justice to a chic
shopper on Sloane Square or
Greene Street. Her ranch com-
prises 125 square miles, and it
has been a centre for interna-
tional naturalists since 1927
when Tiny McTurk came out to
the Rupununi to factor rubber
latex for his employer.
The Karanambu lodge con-
sists of a series of comfortable
guest houses grouped around a
central courtyard dominated by
mango trees. There is no barn, of
course; the rangy cattle are all off
in the savannah attended to by
their vaqueros, the expert riders
in whom cowboys and Indians
meet as one. Dianne's nephew
Eddie confirms they are lucky to
raise five cattle per square mile,
and that eco-tourism is what
keeps the famous ranch going.
Well-known for her con-
servation work with giant ot-
ters, Dianne McTurk has
carved out her own niche in
this naturalist tradition; right
now she has two cub otters in
her care, which will grow to
six feet in 18 months, and she
tells us how she came to look
after them.
"We got a hysterical radio
call one night from a neighbour
woman who said her husband
found them abandoned on a
riverbank. Because his wife was
breastfeeding their own infant,
he thought she wouldn't mind
doing the same for two more.
She was quite beside herself."
We understand the poor
woman's concern when we meet
the baby otters. The cubs sport
teeth like a size-10 chainsaw,
perfect for stripping the flesh
from hard-plated river fish. They
display distinct personalities,
too, one plainly sulking when
the other gets the larger fish.

"Come here my darlings,
come here you little monsters."
Dianne feeds the two frisky sib-
lings a bowl of fish caught to or-
der by the local boys, weaning
them off their bottles of baby
formula and zoo mix, piranha by
piranha. "Ready for your swim,
my brutes, my darlings?"
The otters, Sergei and
Sappho, growl agreeably and
follow her down the trail to the
river's edge. Karanambu means
"Carib landing" in the Macushi
language. Again, the Caribs his-
torically made a military incur-
sion deep into this savannah,
too; but, according to one local
tradition, were turned by the
Great Spirit into the large,
vaguely human black stones that
mark the entrance to the ranch.
Geologists concur that these
strange rocks -are metamorphic;
the Guyana Shield is a slightly
concave disk of four-and-a-half
billion-year-old basalt upon
which rests this relatively young
sedimentary layer, dated at two-
and-a-half billion years. There
are exposed white sand pillows
in every direction along the
shore, contrasting with shoals of
red hematite, which indicate
profound and lengthy water-ac-
tion on iron-rich silt. This was a
seabed not so many ages ago,
and the water has not so much
disappeared as recycled itself up
into the atmosphere within the
continental system of the whole
Amazon Basin. We can see the
high water mark of the seasonal
floods blackening the tree trunks
above our heads.
Dianne is now swimming in
the Rupununi with the otter
cubs, chattering volubly among
themselves. They slither around
her legs and somersault and float
on their backs. The caimans keep
their distance. Giant otters are
the alpha creatures of the river's
hierarchy. Even the young ones
have no hesitation chasing an
adult alligator. And apparently
they sometimes do that, just for
sport. No wonder they under-
stand public-school English.

RIVER, cruising past lagoons
and hidden ponds, exploring up-
turned black creeks. Each bend
of the river reveals deft sur-
prises: silvery fish that leap out
of the water and go skipping
along the surface for a dozen
paces. Capuchin monkeys that
play follow the-leader across a
gap in the trees they must ex-
ecute in a single leap, or perish
in the long jaws waiting so pa-
tiently below. Gawking macaws,
ospreys, herons, anihingas, bit-
terns and sweet yellow song-
birds, they are all here, collect-
ing at the riverbanks in great
numbers like dressed-up Mid-
western farm families crowding
into the annual state fair. The
jaribou stork is the largest bird
we've seen so far, a black and
white apparition with a crimson
neckband and the most alien face
one can conceive. We watch it
through binoculars, shuddering at
its stark carnality a black ra-
pier for a beak, surmounted by
two green slits. It is, of course,
watchingus back.
This afternoon Dianne
McTurk wants us to meet
Rewa, an orphaned giant otter
she has raised from infancy and
released back into the wild. She
is concerned for its future.
"The most dangerous, most
vulnerable time for the young ot-
ter is at two years of age, when
they must leave the family group
and find themselves their own
territory. They must quietly
pass through the domain of
other otters, who'will defend
their river lands to the death."

We motor to a deserted la-
goon filled with the huge.green
cake pans of the Amazonian wa-
ter-lily. Here, fish splash with-
out cease, while their nemesis,
the keen egrets, sit crookedly on
dead branches, too glutted to flee
the intruders.
"Rewa, Rewa, Rewa!"
Dianne's voice echoes through
the empty pond. "Come here,
creature! Come here, my beauti-
ful one!"
She holds out her bucket of
fresh fish, waving itin the tropi-
cal breeze like a censor in a green
cathedral, an offering dedicated
to an unhoused God.
"I think she gone upriver,
Miss Dianne," says Theodor,
our Macushi boatman.
"Rewa! Rewa!"
A breeze ripples the pond,
the lily pads dance. But the
shoreline stays empty. Wher.
ever the young otter has gone,
she is not here.
Later, our host tells us what
it was she loved about her wild
creatures. She has raised giant
anteaters, armadillos and other
odd South American fauna no
one considers cute in the con-
ventional setse. She considered
them all as gifts.
"With any wild animal you
raise, you are its surrogate
mother, responsible for its daily
survival. You have an inexpress-
ible connection to it. It's a gift,
a joy, but only for a short time.
Eventually you must let go. So
knowing this, the intensity of
your relationship is far
greater."She is, of course,- dis-
cussing love. Not marriage.

THE RUPUNNI they take us to
see the giant anteater on the dry sa-
vannah, far from the river. The va-
queros had succeeded in locating one
of the creatures in the scrub nearthe
dwindling cattle pond, a few miles
from the main house. We drive out
into the morning sunshine; the day
is clear and you can see something
moving through the brush a great
way off. The vaqueros draw nearer,
slouching on their loping
appaloosas, taking their sweet time.
The bushes shook and there
it was, that vacillating black-
andwhite plume for a tail, and an
immense, furry ballpeen hammer
for a head. The giant anteater
prances into the plain view and
you can't get it right, its too
strange. Tilted with feverish
power. We grow uneasy and
hope the surreal spectre will take
no notice of us. That it will
saunter back into the unknown,
burning forest from which it
emerged, and leave us wondering
if we had committed a sacrilege
merely by witnessing its mo-
mentary diversion into our ordi-
nary world.

Prepared by Mr. Lennox Julian Hernandez, Senior
Lecturer, Department ofArchitecture,
University of Guyana
ODAY, we begin a series on historic Hindu
and Muslim placed of worship in Guyana.
We begin by looking at the origins of these
sacred sites in Guyana in their socio-cultural
context, and later articles will examine a selection
of the older temples and mosques built prior to
the 1940s. We are greatly indebted to Karna
Bahadur Singh for the book 'Temples and
Mosques: An Illustrated Study of East Indian
Places of Worship in Guyana' (1980), used
extensively to produce this series.
When the first Indian indentured servants arrived in British
Guiana in 1838, they would have brought with them knowledge of
the religion's structures from their homeland. However, Singh notes,
it was not untilthe late 1860s and 1870s that "the Indian immigrants



began to establish settled social
and ritual patterns" making
possible the introduction of
temples and mosques to the
colony. In fact, an 1870 report
from a commission into the
treatment of immigrants noted
that there was an "abeyance of
religious activity and a paucity
of religious buildings" among
the Indian immigrants. We may
say that the land and building
resources, as well as the social
and cultural contexts they
met here would have been
different to that which they
were accustomed. Therefore,
as with most peoples who have
had a drastic change in
environment, they may have
had t greatly adjust
themselves, especially in

their capacity as indentured
. Singh's research shows,
however, that there were other
forces that delayed the arrival of
the temple (the Hindu place of
worship) and the mosque (the
Muslim place of worship) both
of which were, at this time, well
developed in India. Singh notes
that during the early days of
Indian immigration, most of
those who came were of a
"wandering and unsettled
nature" .such as the
Dhangars, who also did
not practice orthodox Hin-
duism. A later group was "the
floating unemployed from the
metropolitan areas of
Calcutta and Madras who
were unsettled and insecure".
These two groups, Singh
says, were not the people "to
mould social and ritual struc-
tures." It was not until after
1851, with the introduction and
steady flow of more "social

types" of immigrants that a
more settled environment was
created, allowing for the estab-
lishment of places of worship.
.These earliest places of
Hindu and Muslim worship,
up to the early 1880s, would
have been quite simple and
usually temporary.
According to Singh, the
Hindus may have firstly
used temporary tents made
of bamboo poles and
coconut branches for
religious purposes, and for
housing their Gods. From
descriptions by Bronkhurst
in 1883 and 1888, Singh
surmises that later, during
this developmental stage, the
Hindus very likely built mud
huts with thatched roofs,
later called "hut-temples by
Bronkhurst. The Muslims,
meanwhile, prayed in open
areas marked off for this
purpose as was donein Arabia
in the early days of Islam.

In the last two decades of
the 19th century, permanent and
more durable structures of brick
and stone were built, says
Singh. This was the first great
period of temple and mosque
building by the Hindus and
Muslims in the country. The
surviving 19th century temples
and mosques are from this pe-

Hello boys and girls,
It's good to meet again with you today. To-
day we'll learn about The Excretory System
and The Skeletal System.

Note: Just before we go into our lesson for to-
day, let us look back at last week's work. Did
you notice in the diagram representing the res-
piratory system, that there were other parts of
the respiratory system identified? For example,
pharynx, larynx, diaphragm, and pleural
cavity, they also make up the respiratory sys-
tem. They are part of a much higher level of sci-
ence relating to the human body, but if you take
the opportunity now to do the research, when you
reach to that level you will be fully prepared and
ready to learn more about these parts.

This also goes for the digestive system. If you
have noticed there is a gallbladder, transverse
colon, descending colon, and an ascend-
ing colon included in the listing on the diagram,
these also make up the digestive system. You
would be a little challenged now but if you look
them up (research) on these parts you will un-
derstand what they are used for in the digestive

I further advise you to be smart and challenge
yourself to learn more at an early stage, so it will
be easy at a later day.

The Excretory System
Waste from the body passes through the ex-

cretory system when leaving the body. The
main organs in this system are the kidneys.
Waste products within the blood are carried
by the arteries to the kidneys to be pro-
cessed or for cleaning. Waste products are
filtered from the blood by very small (tiny)
tubes which are fond in the kidneys. These
waste products are salts and urea. The
urea and water together form urine. The urine
then passes from the kidneys to the blad-
der through two tubes called ureters. The
bladder then stores the urine until it is
passed out from the body. Name another
organ system that gets rid of waste matter?
The skin also gets rid of waste in the form of


4,4- LF F'r KID1V


Excrete: to separate (waste mater) from the
blood or tissue and eliminate from the body, as.
through the kidneys or sweat glands.

The skeletal system


The bony framing of the body is called the skel-
etal system. The skeletal system is made up of
two hundred and six bones. It supports the body
and gives it its shape. The skeletal system also
gives protection to delicate organs with in the
body. The marrows in the bones are madefrom
red blood cells; this is what keeps it strong and
healthy, so your bones would not break easily.
The bones also store minerals for use by cells in
other parts of the body. When two or more bones
meet or come together, a joint is formed.


What does the skull protect?
What part of the skeleton protects the
heart and lungs?
How many ribs are there in the male skel-
etal system and in the female skeletal system?

Hello boys and girls,
Welcome to this week's Social Studies input. If
you want to study effectively, you must be pre-
pared to make a clean break with those habits
that are not helpful for good study. Be careful,
now! Love you.


Animals (Continued)
Swimming Animals
Facts on some swimming mammals:
Whales, dolphins and porpoises are all members
of the whale family.
These mammals:
/ Live completely in the sea.
V Have flippers for forelegs, and have fish-tails.
/ Nourish their young on mother's milk.
V The whale has to come to the water surface to
breathe and send up a fountain of water. [The fish
family does not have to come up for breathing, nor
does it send up a stream of water.]
V The whale has a 'nose' valve which closes when
it submerges or goes beneath the water surface.
This valve prevents it from getting drowned.
V The whale is the largest of all the mammals;
and can grow as long as eighty feet.
Another mammalian group that lives as much at
sea as on land is made up of the seal, sealion and
V They breed their young on the seas shore and
live on fish they catch in the sea. [Whales cannot
live on land like this group of mammals.]
V Their body reveals the-fin-shape. When at sea,

they swim just like the fish! When on the shore,
they can move quickly.

Broadening the Horizon
At this point, there are some things you need to know
about where animals in the wild live to have a com-
plete picture of why they live and look as they-do.

What is wildlife? Wildlife is about everything that
concerns non-domesticated animals and plants in
a particular area. (Of course, you do not have non-
domesticated cats and dogs at home!)
Rainforests, shell beaches, river and ocean areas,
and other naturally kept expanses harbour wildlife.
Can you think of any other naturally kept areas?
Write them down.

What is animal habitat? Animal habitat is the place
where the animal lives. The habitat includes all the
animals, plants, soil, and rocks that the animal
needs to gain food and shelter, it also includes the
-- .. ,

air and water the animal needs to live and repro-
duce. The pictures give ideas of animals and their


Something to Do
1 Discuss in your study groups about the habitat
of the ocean turtle the tiger and the wild hog and
gain a better understanding of what they depend on
in their environment Of course you may have to
get hold of a library book or talk to someone who
really knows
2 You know that turtles come to our shell beaches
on a yearly basis to lay their eggs and see after
their hatchlings How would you describe the shell

The passage

The selection below is taken from Sweet Prom-
ised Land by Robert Laxalt (1959: 62-3). You
can use the questions below it as guidelines for
a better understanding of the passage. If your
own writing can provoke such discussion, then it
has hit the mark of excellence.

Sweet Promised Land is a biography of Laxalt's
father, a Basque shepherd who went toAmerica
when he was sixteen. As Laxalt puts it, "My fa-
ther was a sheepherder, and his home was the
hills. So it began when he was a boy in the
misted Pyrenees of Nevada." Look at.the de-
scription of Laxalt's father at the age of 63. He
was in an exclusive New York restaurant, on his
way back to his homeland for the first time since
he came to America.

Functions of the Adverb

Let us now go on to the functions of the adverb.

Adverbs function usually as modifiers of verbs,
but they sometimes modify other words as well
as phrases and whole sentences. The most
common adverb functions are listed below.

a) Modifying a verb: In general, single-word
modifiers of verbs are thought of as ad-
The grass grew over.
Garden manure rot wonderfully after some

Adverbs that modify verbs shift position freely.
We seldom see each other.
We see each other seldom.

b) Modifying a linking-verb complement: An
adverb may modify an adjective used as a link-
ing-verb complement.
The dinner was deliciously prepared.
Our Ralph is unusually cross.

c) Modifying an adjective: An adverb may
modify an adjective.
Marion is an unusually brilliant pre-school child.
Mr. Watson is an extraordinarily strong bass.

d) Modifying an adverb: An adverb may
modify another adverb.
Your pot bakes tasted surprisingly well.


A. Underline the adverbs in the following sen-
tences. Then identify the function of each ad-
verb by writing one of these labels over it: vm
(verb modifier), adj. mod (adjective modifier),
adv mod (adverb modifier), or mod lvc (modi-
fier of linking-verb complement).

1. The woman is annoyingly wasteful.
2. Simon Goody fought unsuccessfully for
shingles off houses.
3. Mr. James is always happy.
4. The crew travels late Friday.
5. This booby trap has unusually large spikes.

B. Describe then function of each adjective and
adverb in the fo awing sentences.

Fertilising Fruit and

Vegetable Crops

ome soils are naturally
low in nutrients whilst
others become depleted
due to continuous cropping.
Farmers are generally aware
when this condition arises.
They usually refer to their soils
in this state as being 'run
down'. Farmers invariably use
fertilisers and manure to correct
this problem. The use of
fertilisers has become an
essential and routine part of
many crop production systems.
Farmers do not use fertilisers
just to grow big crops or to
increase the nutrient content of
their soils. They do so to make
a living. As a result, any
fertilizer practice must be
technically correct to ensure it
gives a fair economic return to

Plants need adequate sup-
plies of nutrients for good
growth and high yields. When
the soil itself-cannot supply the
quantities of nutrients needed
by the plants, best yields would
not be obtained unless applying
the missing substances as fertil-
izers makes up the shortage of
plant nutrients. A fertilizer is a
material, the main function of
which is to provide plant nutri-
Fertilisers are classified into
two categories inorganic and
organic. The inorganic (mineral)
fertilizer is a one in which the
declared nutrients are in the
form of inorganic salts obtained
by extraction and/ or by physi-
cal and / or chemical industrial
processes. Organic fertilisers are
carbonaceous materials mainly
of vegetable and / or animal ori-

gin added to the soil specifi-
cally for the nutrition of the
Inorganic fertilisers include
urea (source N), TSP (source P),
muriate of potash (source of K)
and compound fertilisers such
as 15:15:15. Inorganic fertilisers
could be granular, coated, slow
release, etc.
Organic fertilisers (manures)
are derived from the wastes of
plants and animals. Litter from
poultry, cows, sheep, etc are
commonly used for fertilisation.
Decomposed organic materials
(composts) are the most com-
mon organic fertilisers.

When fertilisers are applied,
care must be taken to ensure
That the fertilizer is placed near
enough for the roots to readily
absorb it while at the same time
the concentration is not too high
to cause injury to the root. The
soluble constituents of fertiliz-
ers diffuse through the soil ver-
tically and only slightly in a lat-
.eral direction. The method of
application, therefore, must en-
sure distribution to reach the.
plant roots.
There are three methods
generally used for fertilizer ap-
plication. These are: broadcast,
placement and foliar applica-

In this method the fertilizer
is spread uniformly over the
filed as possible. This is com-
monly referred to as 'shying'.
This method is suitable for
crops whose seeds are broadcast
after the land has been ploughed

and then mixed with the soil
ploughs or cultivators.

Placement is when the
fertilizer is put in a small area
close to the plant or seed. This
could be done in spots or as
Spot placement: the
fertilizer is put approximately 5
cm (2 inches) way from the seed
and about 5 cm below the soil.
The fertilizer should not be left
exposed on the surface of the
soils. This will lead to the loss
of fertilizer. This method is use-
ful for crops such as corn,
beans, pumpkin, squash, mel-
ons and cucumber, which have
large seeds.
Band placement: the.
fertilizer is placed in bands on
one side or both sides of the
row, about 5 cm below the seed
and 5 cm away from the seed
or plant. This method is useful
for crops, which are sensitive to
direct contact with fertilisers.
Band placement is also used for
tree crops such as citrus, coco-
nuts, avocado *and papaws. In
this case, the fertilizer is put in
a circular band around the tree.
Trees are usually treated indi-
vidually, the fertilizer being ap-
plied around each tree within
the spread of the branches, but
beginning a few meters from the
trunk. Generally, the fertilizer is
placed around the drip line of
the plant canopy. The fertilizer
must be worked into the soil as
much as possible after applica-
Foliar application: this is
the application of fertilizer di-
rectly to the foliage of the plant
as a liquid spray. The nutrients
can be absorbed directly by

plant leaves although only in
limited quantities.

Practices employed for or-
ganic fertilisation include crop
rotation, green manuring, mulch-
ing, use of animal manure,
composted materials, liquid ma-
nures and plant teas.
In Guyana, the most com-
monly used materials for organic
fertilisation are manures and

composted materials. Organic
fertilisers have muchlower nu-
trient contents than synthetic
mineral fertilisers. Thus, large
quantities (tons/ ha) are required.
However, they have some ad-
vantages such as slow nutrient
release (mineralisation), ten-
dency not to damage roots, pro-
vision of micronutrients and im-
provement of soil structure.
Organic fertilisers are
generally spread on the soil
surface and then worked into

the soil. These materials car.
also be left on the soil sur-
face, initially serving as a
mulch. This is a useful prac-
tice in vegetable production.
For tree.crops, the organic
fertilizer should be placed in
a circular band, around the
drip line. The fertilizer ma-
terials should be subse-
quently mulched.

!Sunday-Chronicle August 14 205

USUALLY the use of enemas in
canine medicine is associated
with the treatment of constipa-
tion. I should mention, in pass-
ing, that not all straining to pass
stool qualified as a reflection of
a constipation.condition. In fact,
straining to stool with no faecal
matter emerging can occur when
the animal has a diarrhoea. Simi-"
larly, straining might result from
a cystitis (bladder infection). Let
your vet first diagnose a consti-
pation/impaction of faeces in
the rectum and advise you ac-
cordingly before you begin us-
ing an enema. The vet must ad-
vise on this line of action, oth-
erwise you can do more damage
with an enema than good.
There are different types of
enemas one can use. There is,
for example, the home-made
concoction of soapy water. I
have experienced pet owners
mixing salt/baking soda with
water and then introducing this
solution into the rectum. Natu-
ral and synthetic oils have been
known to be used as enemas to
combat constipation. Let me
warn that enemas should only

be used on singular occasions to
assist in getting the compact
mass of feaces out of the rec-
tum. It is not to be used as a
continuous therapeutic interven-
tion. After all, constipation
could be caused by a myriad of
factors ranging from inappropri-
ate diets, the use of too severe
methods to house-train a pet,
physical blockage (e.g. an en-
larged prostate pressing against
the rectum), damage nerves and/
or muscles (paralysis), inflam-
mation of the anus, and so on.
Further, soapy water and other
chemicals with potentially toxic
ingredients could be absorbed
by the rectum mucosa and then
do damage to the liver, espe-
cially if the solutions/oils are
used over a long period.
It is therefore important to
ascertain the origin of the con-
stipation and then remove the
causative factorss, before intro-
ducing an enema. Actually, there
are several other ways to treat
constipation other than the use
of enema.
There are commercial
products on the market that
can be used as enemas. The

most common one ('Fleet') is
manufactured for humans,
but finds great usage as part
of a therapeutic arsenal in
veterinary medicine. Again,
administer only after your vet
has prescribed this course of
The equipment you will
need to give an enema is an en-
ema can or bag (which can be
purchased in a drug store) and
a catheter (or a piece of rubber
tube). Lubricate the catheter/
tube and insert it into the anal
canal, one to three inches, de-
pending on the size of the dog.
The recommended dose is one
ounce of fluid (six teaspoons)
per ten pounds of body weight
of the dog.

Your veterinarian may pre-
scribe a suppository to treat
constipation. Also, medications
can be given by suppository
when the oral route is not sat-
isfactory (for example, when a
dog is vomiting).
A suppository is lubricated
with Vaseline and slipped all the

way into the rectum where it
dissolves. Suppositories for
constipation contain a mild irri-
tant which draws water into the
rectum and stimulates a bowel
movement. Several commercial
products for this purpose are on
the market. You can buy it at
any drug store. For small dogs,
break the suppository in half.
Suppositories should not be
given to a dog in pain.



Please implement disease
preventative measures (vacci-
nations, routine dewormings,
monthly anti-Heartworm
medication, etc) and adopt-a-
pet from the GSPCA's Ani-
mal Clinic and Shelter at
Robb Street and Orange
Walk, if you have the where-
withal to care well for the

animals. Do not stray your
unwanted pets, take them to
the GSPCA Clinic and
Shelter instead. Also, find
out more about the Society's
free spay and neutering
programme. If you see anyone
being cruel to an animal, get in
touch with the Clinic and
Shelter by calling 226-4237.
