DEMOCRAT WITH A DIFFERENCE
Crusader For A New Social Order
By Vishnu Maya
Jawaharlal Nehru, today, epitomises modern India,-
and vice versa.
The newness of India, of which he is the mainspring,
t a k e s many forms. Fascinating new events have been
added to the Indian calendar since Independence.
New areas of economic development have been opened
up. Bhakra, Hirakud, Nagarjunasagar, Koyna--are but
examples of a purposive society as he visualises it. India's
"new temples," Nehru calls them. There is more t h an
what meets the eye in that neat phrase...
Aristotle did not draw a line between the spheres of the statesman
and the moralist. Gandhi made democracy a metaphysical concept,
extolling service and sacrifice, with moralism as the guiding beacon.
Nehru took democracyin its historical stride, and leavened it with
humanitarianism to give it economic content.
No democracy, Nehru has said, can exist for long in the midst of
want and poverty, and, above all, inequality. The solution of India's
problems, as chose of the world, he is convinced, lies in Socialism. He
uses the word in its scientific and economic sense, connoting a philosophy of
life, not a mere political dogma,

"SO THEY SAY--"
BY BOB & RAY
Dominicans can rejoice that there is one man among them who com-
bin:s th.t rare quality of friendliness with an equally scarce talent called
"hard work". Th: phrase "to know him is to love him" can well ap-
plied to this Dominican. Nearly everyone in Dominica has seen his quick
and ready smile and hundreds of us get thatwarm glow comes from looking
at his sincere face You know where you stand with this man right away
because he tells you! No beating around the bush for him. No "Er, ah, um,
um. . let me see ... um, er, ah!" Hesketh Shiliingford is to the point.
Having worked for years in Grenada operating the lime juice p'ant
there, "Heskiff" (as most Dominicans call him) returned to his native
Dominica bout a yar ago and became the mnn ige, ofone ofthe island's -lrg-
est meichanu se marts The Phoenix. Steadily building friends day by day
tits a hobby of his), he tackled the task of building customers while at the
same time he streamlined the old store and made it into a brighter, more
efficient place to sh'p. No sale is too small to be ignored by "Heskiff"
and he spends hours of each day listening to his customers problems so that
he can be more helpful to them. Send a truck across town to get an item
he is temporarily out of? Sure! Glad to do it. Those potatoes you
bought had a few rotten ones in the box? Well, how many pounds do you
think are bad we'll give you a credit! Cheerful, helpful, always on
duty . never too busy to be pleasant. "Heskiff' is one in a million.
With years of experience operating the large and lavish "Aquatic Club"
at St George in Grenada, Heskiff" brings these talents to Dominica
(along with three highly trained personnel that worked with him there) and
already Rockaway takes on new lfe. Fresh water showers have been install-
ed for the bather who wants to wash off the salt after a dip in the sea.
Delicious food, from a snack to a full meal, prepared on the spot, is offered
in pleasantly clean surroundings. An outdoor pool is planned and best of
all, a Casino will be opened saoi in the ground floor area of the Rock-
away club house. Those who are not interested in dancing upstairs can

never forgets the children: there'll be swings for them in a special play-yard
at Rockaway soon.
So here's a man who works hard all day long at The Phoenix and
then when everybody goes home to take it easy, he puts on "his other hat"
and drives to Rockaway and puts in another eight to ten hours to make
sure the customers all enjoy themselves. Yes, Dominicans are might glad
"Heskiff" came home from Grenada.
We may as well trot out our own views on Carnival: a Carnival
means a crowd and a crowd means trouble! There are inexpensive chemi-
cals on the market now that make a garment (or drapes, decorations, etc.
in a dance hall) fire-resistant if not actually fire-proof. Some places have
passed laws that this chemical be used on fabrics in all theaters, custumes,
etc. so a careless person cannot burn people alive. But whether a Carnival
accident is a fire or a shooting, knifing or just plain loud talk, its the crowd
that makes it all possible. Men join crowds .o escape the restriction.of
life and the sense of isolation from others; a crowd provides a shortlived but
deeply felt equality and companionship. Ellas Canetti, writes brilliantly
about "Crowds and Power", his new book, and concludes that man is
power-mad, and never more so than in a crowd. "Stepping out of every-
thing which binds, encloses and burdens them is the real reason for the
elation whi;h people feel in a crowd" he writes "Nowhere does the indi-
vidual feel more free and if he tries to remain part of a crowd, it is because
he knows what awaits him afterwards. When he returns to his house, to
himself he finds again, boundaries, burdens and strings."
All crowds in the raw behave much the same, Canetti argues, whether
they form for feasts, funerals, rebellions or lynchings. Crowds that form
for the most exalted reasons, Canetti says, can become the most murderous.
He cites as a typical case, an Easter service in Jerusalem in 1834. The
faithful flocked to the church by the thousands to see the descent of the Holy
Fire. When the "miraculous" fire appeared, people were in a frenzy to get
to it. In the turmoil, two crowds squared off and started senselessly
slaughtering each other until the church floor was littered with corpses.
Canetti's book shows how man has "domesticated" crowds. Politi-
cal parties, are "closed crowds" and the best crowd domesticators, he says,
are the world's great religions. But when a "closed crowd" is forced to
disband (like when the Treaty of Versailles abolished the German army-
then Germany's "most essential closed crowd"), the Nazi mob sprang up
in its place,
A Carnival means a crowd of people in whose milling depths lurks
the madmen who have a lust for power, and in some, a desire to kill.
Feeling "safe and free" in such a carefree crowd is the trigger for the
trouble that generally follows. How many assassins of great men have hid-
den in a crowd to cloak their actions? Yes a crowd is one thing a good
policeman fears most and when he sees one forming his first words are:
"Break it up, folks, move along .. But a carnival is an "organized
crowd" and legally allowed to assemble; but its still a crowd and the gaiety
is the best disguise of all to power mad, mentally warped individuals who,
part of all society, are "buried" somewhere in that crowd.

The catalogue of accidents occurring
to trucks (in last week's news) highlights
the irresponsibility of drivers who are in
charge of vehicles they do not own. The
terrible accident at Pond Cassee was due
to driving by a man who was not the
regular chauffeur; but it was also irrespon-
sible of somebody to authorise him to
take the road-gang to Pond Cassee. We
understand that the Public Works De-
partment usually attempts to ensure that
its trucks, bought with public money, are
properly maintained and carefully driven.
We also know that they have difficulty
in getting responsible drivers who conform
to regulations and report defects. But
we submit that they should be scrupu-
A sense of responsibility is something
that is only gained by inculcation at an
early age -and it is somewhat lacking in
Dominica. On another page we print a
letter from the Mayor of Roseau referring
to damage by bulldozers to the roads of
Roseau. Every bulldozer is supplied with
road-pads by means of which a tracked
vehicle can proceed along a road without
causing damage, but orders to the drivers
to fit these pads are aften ignored since extra work is involv-
ed in taking them on and off.
But irresponsibility is not confined to daily or weekly-
paid workers. Look higher, citizen, look higher! We
refer to Government's relations with the Town Council.
Agreement in principle has been arrived at that the Central
Government should take over one road t h r o u g h
Roseau as a highway and be responsible for its maintenance.
Along that road-whether Bath Road and River Street or
Queen Mary Street and River Street-every bulldozer or
o t h e r tracked vehicle going to work in the South of the
i sla n d (and returning) would have to pass. But our
Central and Town Governments cannot agree on w h e r e
these vehicles should pass, and the Central Government (it
seems) wishes to reduce the allocation for road maintenance
in Roseau to a point where the Council would not be able
to maintain the rest of the roads adequately.
Where then does the responsibility lier The answer is
perfectly clear. It is a joint one with emphasis on Central
Government, and no vote-catching distractions should
be allowed to deceive the public. An immediate agree-
ment must be reached and maintained.

A Scholar On
As often happens after a tra-
gedy, a school of thought prmpt
-demants harsh repressive measures,
and the reaction after Black Monday
is no exception. Nevertheless one
must look twice before action is
In the first place, Carnival, that
is Mardi Gras "Farewell to the Flesh,"
is a very old Christian celebration
having its roots deep in the old
Manicheean Heresy. T h e central
figures, not now found in many
countries which observe the Carni-
val, are Satanic devils, brutes and
especially the Mithraic bull. The
cults of Mithras and Manes were a
very real menace to Christianvty in
the first twelve centuries after Christ
and these figures were all portrayed
and symbolized as creatures of the car-
nal appetites. Dominica is one of the
few places left in the world where
the old symbols (even if the partici-
pants are unaware) still appear.
Secondly, all over Dominica, Carni-
val gives very great pleasure at small
expense to a great number of inno-
cent people in an innocent way,
Wickedness will occur anyway and
the wicked will wreak their damage
on society (often in more unobtru-
sive ways) 365 days in the year.
Carnival in its old simplicity was
the day for the pauper to be a prince
for 48 hours, the drudge to be a
beauty, the felon a judge. It is the
mainspring four indigenous culture
and a chance for the ordinary man
to shine in song, dance or parade.
Some control is necessary, yes,
even if i s a regulation insisting
on fircproofing of costumes, but any
attempt to ban the core of the Carn-
ival should be resisted. Surely one
thing above all to be avoided is the
"improvement" of the old masque-
rade in such a way that the ability
to take part is limited to those with
money to burn, causing the whole
celebration to become a commercial
enterprise and participation a "status
symbol". And keep the rum-shops
Some education in the meaning
of the Carnival from the pulpit
would not come amiss there is
surely plenty of theological informa-
should be taken is for each band to
appoint its own 'Police" who move
through the band and check trouble
before it starts.

by the Mayor of Roseau at the letter's request,
16th March, 1963
The Honourable Chief Minister,
Sir,-On the 21st of February last, I was forced to appeal
to the Honourable Minister for Works & Communications
drawing his attention, and through him that of Govern-
m e n t, to the repeated cases of destruction of the streets of
Roseau by bulldozers.
This letter was acknowledge by the Honourable Min-
ister's letter dated 5th March which reads ad extenso.
"I have the honour to acknowledge receipt of y o u r
letter dated 21st February, on the subject of damage done
by Bulldozers of the Public Works Department to the
streets of Roseau and to inform you that the contents of
your letters have been noted."
I am to p o i n t out, that the Honourable Minister's
stereotyped acknowledgement serves as evidence of Govern-
ment's unwillingness to cooperate with the Roseau T o w n
Council in maintaining proper streets in Roseau as in any
other project, for since the date of my letter bulldozers have
on two occasions caused damage (o the Streets, making a
total of three cases of such wilful mischief since the repara-
tion of the streets.
Finally I must inform you, that since there is no more
that the Council can do in this important matter, copies of
all such correspondence will be released to the Press and
I have the honour to be,
Your Obedient Servant,

Dawbiney On 'Religion And Capitalism'
By Herald Literary Club Reporter
In reply to a question, Mr, Law-
Last Thursday evening, i n a
philosophical discourse of a stand
ard that satisfied the highest tradi-
tions of the Club, Mr. Wendell
Lawrence gave a thought-provoking
talk on Religion and Capitalism.
Religion he took to mean the univer-
sal service and adoration of God, and
Capitalism the economic system con
ducted by free private enterprise and
controlled under competitive condi-
tions. The word church would also
be used, but only as reference to the
universal society of Christianity and
not to any particular Church.
Mr Lawrence commenced by trac-
ing the history of the relationship be-
tween Religion and Capitalism from
Mediaeval times prior to the I6th
Century. Then was the rise of capi-
talism and the attempt of Religion to
control every economic activity by a
tight moral framework. Later came
the 16th Century and the Reforma
tion with its spirit ofrejuvenation and
purification which saw the beginning
of change in the conception of rela-
tions between religion and secular

Something About Government
(Continued from page 2)
must have the intellgent interest of every man and woman.
It is argued by some that people cannot vote intelligently in
a world where problems are so complicated, but they do
not have to vote on the details of such problems. T h e i r
first obvious responsibility is to choose representatives who
are qualified by intelligence and integrity. A second duty
is to keep themselves informed about the issues which face
the country and the actions of their representatives regarding
them. A third obligation is to see that their opinions are
conveyed to their representatives on every important i s s u e.
Every voter should demand the same clear statement
of policy from the man seeking his vote as he expects to get
on a package of food or a bottle of drugs: not vague and
cloudy in its terms but specific and clear and honest.

The Canadian government in action
Standing at the apex of the governmental executive power is the Prime
Minister surrounded by the members of his cabinet. Each member of the
cabinet is responsible for the administration of a department of government
staffed by civil servants presided over by a deputy minister appointed by the
The basic qualities of the cabinet are secrecy, unity of outlook, collec-
tive responsibility, and accountability to Parliament. It exercises control
over the House of Commons through its prerogative of dissolution. It is
made representative of the racial and religious and sectional interest of Cana-
da by selection of its members.
The outstanding duty of the cabinet is to furnish initiative and leader-
ship, to provide a national policy, to cope with present emergencies, and to
plan for future needs. The confidence of the people is won by a cabinet
which displays these qualities objectively and consistently. If a government
measure is defeated in Parliament, the cabinet is said to have "lost the confi-
dence" of the House, and its members will offer their resignations.
As long ago as 1912 a commission enquiring into the public service
of Canada reported that cabinet ministers bore an almost intolerable burden
of work. Since that time, parliamentary assistants, now called "parliamen-
tary secretaries" have been taking some of the load, and there has been more
delegation of technical routine and administrative tasks.
The are two chambers in the Canadian Parliament: the Senate and
the House of Commons. The duties of the Senate include the review of
all legislation passed by the Commons, but it may introduce legislation
which it considers desirable in the best interests of the country. It was not
intended to be a competitor of the House of Commons, but rather, as the
firit Canadian Prime Minister said, to be a second chamber which could
"take a sober second look" at legislation initiated in the lower house. By
its nature, it affords protection to minorities and to the established, social
system. Every Act or Statute, before it becomes law, must be passed by a

Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Girls and Boys, -- You often hear grown-ups speak of "patrio-
tism". What does that mean? It simply means love of country. How
can you show love of country? One can show love of country (I) By
Obeying it's laws, (2) By paying taxes. (3) By voting.
The other day we discussed he question of taxes. Today we shall
speak about "voting". A citizen who loves his country is sincerely inter-
ested in its welfare. He shows his interest by making use of his privilege
as a voter and going to the polls at election time. Voting is not only a
privilege but a duty.
You are all too young to vote but early in life you should be taking
an interest in political parties. You should ask questions and try to find
out how the pirty system w.rks. In countries like England, one family
will belong to a particular party for many generations. The party system
is a very new form of government here and that is why every effort should
be made by you to understand how it works.
Candidates for office such as ministers are provided by the party. The
party which succeeds in getting the most candidates returned at election
time comes into power.
In Dominica there are at present only two parties the Dominica
Labour Party which is in power and the Dominica United People's Party.
At the last election some people rtn as Independent Candidates in
any case such people are too few in numbers even if returned -to form
a Government. Eventually, if returned, they generally join the ruling party
or the Opposition.
Now one must be twentyone years of age to be able to vote, and any
one as long as he is not a criminal or lunatic can exercise that privilege.
Voting is also a duty. Unfortunately, this duty is not taken seriously here
