Crusader For A New Social Order

By Vishnu Maya
(Cont. fiom our last issue)

True Internationalist

Nehru has always been touched by the poverty t h a t
has been India's cross. The amplitude of his socialistic
thought is vast, but be has never built fences round it, the
true internationalist that he is. He has stood all along for
a new so c ety, where the freedom of the individual is
supreme and there are no inequalities. In this crusade, he
has countenanced no ifs, or buts.
"The struggle for Indian
freedom is essentially a part
of the world struggle for the ....
emancipation of the exploit- '
ed everywhere and for the
establishment of a new social. ": ,
order," he had said earlier. ,
Narrow nationalism he '
abhors. 'e-:

A believer in the widest
international co-operation,
Nehru considers the "either
you are with us or you arc
against us" approach to o
parochial. 'The future of
humanity, he believes, i e s

in the success of internationalism.
And he is no theoretical internationalist, either. First
came the Five Principles- the recognition of the right of

Bandung. The quintessence of this
s o p h y is the insistence on peaceful
and the concept of non-interference.

new political philo-
settlement of disputes

A Global Vote

As a corollary to his internationalism comes his philoso-
phy of non-alignment. It is a positive, not a negative creed,
implying friendliness to all nations but aloofness fr o m
power jockeyings bestriding the world. Nehru has s e e n
enough of history for his mood of non-alignment to be a
mere reflex.
Despite the forebodings voiced by detractors, Nehru's
p o lic y of non-alignment has helped India to stem the
Chinese aggression. Though non-aligned, India has re-
ceived aid from both East and West, the two main camps,
with no misgivings from either. Some 70 countries out
of the 1oo represented in the United Nations have offered
sympathy and support to non-aligned India in her struggle
a g a i n s t Chinese expansionism. This endorsement of
sympathy and support is a global vote for non-alignment
and democracy.

Main Stake Peace

Nehru's main stake has been peace world peace.
He believes that without peace all progress is bound to be
crucified. "Surely, if you demand peace," he says, "you
must work for it peacefully." His is a positive approach
to peace, to the lessening of tension and for enlarging the
area of peace. But he would not betray tomorrow for an
uncertain today, not Nehru.
"Where freedom is menaced or justice threatened, or
where aggression takes place, we cannot be and shall not
be neutral," Nehru says. Avoidance and prevention of
war, yes, but no capitulation to aggression.

Accent On Planning

It is in that mood that he dials the destinies of India today. An in-
grate China is paying him and his country back in border aggression.
Anld is call to his countrymen is to stand four-square, aid or no aid, to

meet that threat.
But it is not a mere call to mobilise resources to repel the Chinese
invader back to where he belongs It has connotation of far-reaching states-
manship rarely seen in leadership elsewhere.
His utterances since ihe Chinese aggression m rror his basic convictions.
Th s conflict, wh ch China has forced on India. must perforce be taken as
a struggle for a better life, according to Nehrn, a struggle to sustain the free-
dom of the individual. Not only that, he recognizes thit planned develop-
is as much a pic-requisite for peace as for war, an no less urgent.
Resistance to Chinese aggression should ino blur th focus on Socialism,
National planning, Nehru says, is not something apart from our national life;
it is of the warp and woof it
Few leaders in world history have had the vision to plan for social
reconstruction beyond the flotsam and jetsam that a military conflict leaves
behind. Nehru is a rare exception,

around Government House. At
one stage in the morning pol ce
stopped the demonstration by
seizing banners, but after Home
Affairs Minister Christian had
intervened. Minister of Agricul-
ture, Brindley Bean himself
led the picketers back. The de-
monstration which began at day-
break continued until dusk. It was
supposedly ni'iated to force Op-

the People's National Congress
to say that unemployment was
not Government's fault but that
of "Cap tali3m" and "Imperia-

Honorary U.S.
Citizenship Far

- -The U.S. House of Representa-
tive voted overwhelmingly on March
14 to make Sir Winston Churchill
an honorary citizen of the United
States. The Bill now goes to the
Senate for a vote.
Sir Winston is already an hono-
rary citizen of several states of the
United States, and also of Io cities.
Honorary citizenship in the
United States would not give him
the right t o vote, nor would
he be liable to any U.S. taxes.
No foreigner nai ever been gran-
ted honorary citizenship of
the United States.

Central Africa
"The noise from Central Africa"
said "The Times", in commenting
upon Mr. Butler's tour there,
"has been not of construction but of
demolition." It is now an accepted
fact of political life that the Federa
tion is due to collapse, and the
British Government will try no
longer to shore it up in its present
form. Mr. Butler and his\ C ntral
Africa Office would like to see
economic links remain a central
bank, common currency, common
tariff, common economic codes of
practice, perhaps even shared defence
or foreign policy. But, as "The
Times" has also said 'it it hard to
see co-operation on any significant
level between Dr, Banda's Nyasa-
land, Mr. Kaunda's Northern Rho-
desia, and Mr. Field's Southe:n
Rhodesia, because of the racial con-
lict.'" It is hoped to hold a confe-
rence in London in March to
discuss these matters. Sir Roy
Welensky, knowing that his Federa-
tion and his own political future are
twin coconuts, doomed to fall
together when the British Govern-
ment applies the axe, is being as
obstructive as possible, But by
making it as difficult as possible for
the British Government to come to
arrangements which the people of
the three territories (or at least their
governments) want, he is losing the
support of those sections of public
opinion and those politicians whom
he and his agents had won over in
recent years. The British govern-

Cocoa production shows an increase, but stocks are still on hand awaiting
buyers, and waiting is not good for cocoa. Incidentally we have heard no
more about legislation for Quality Control of cocoa exports as suggested by
the Agricultural Advisory Committee last month. Orange juice to Bar-
bados, also copra (which is also being bought by Trin dad, whose own
coconut plantations are still ravaged by red-ring nematodes), and considera-
ble quantities of lime oil to East Africa and Australia are the main exports
reported, other than bananas.

Green Lime Trade Again
We have a chance, again, to build up our trade in fresh green limes
if only we pay the necessary attention to quality, uniformity and packing.
Prior to World War I, this was a booming trade with New York, despite
lack of refrigerated shipping, and St. Aroment limes were in special demand
by name from New York wholesalers. The recent visit of Mr. Michael
Hughes of Thomson Hankey and Co. Ltd, offers opportunity for restarting
this trade, this time with the U.K. Inter-island trade is still slow, largely
due to the diminution of the number of schooners offering facilities to huck-
sters. Barclays Bulletin says "With the slowing down of emigration to
England, it is reported from several estates that the supply of labour for the
estates is noticeably improved".

WINBAN Optimistic
Improvement in both the quality and quantity of bananas from Dom-
inica is envisaged for 1963. With the fertilizer credit scheme getting under
way and the wider dissemination of knowledge, some improvement should
take place. It was apparent from the release on the recent WINBAN meeting
in St. Vincent that the Association is pleased and satisfied with the progres-
sive work done by Geest Industries and will recommend to the Islands'
Boards that they re-negotiate for the fresh contract due to come up next year
with Geests, obtaining the best terms possible under present day marketing
Mr. John Van Geest, who was present at the meeting, assured de-
legates that his organisation was already geared to handle twelve million
stems a year--the target set for these islands by Winban. Summer shipments
would be 6,600,ooo and winter 5,400,000ooo. There will be an increase be-
tween the summer months (April-September) of a quarter cent per tl until
the present contract ends in July 1964 Action by WINBAN has already
been taken to negotiate with the U.K government for protection of the U.K.
market for Commonwealth bananas owing to the breakdown of E.C.M.
talks, the necessity may be merely academic.
Jamaica, who has been losing ground to the Windwards, received
a scare lst summer when Geests showed their strength by refusing to drop A

ik A MiA TER


OC)VINTG from the scg e:ti.ni: b.ticid i~n : United
St States to the Biitain oti W:h West !aiiins is a conitus
ing change. The two clo r prob'.m; oi.lg': to b: rel.edJ,
and indcied most Americans think th-y cjrc-l each other
out: mention segregation and they will mention the Notting
Hill liot (they setm to think it occurs every weekend), ds
if our problem matched theirs. Yet except for the b a s i c
evil of classing people by their appearance the two racial
situations have little in common.

There is-for the home-
coming Eriton--this wony-
ing difference. In the Deep
South as much as the North
e v e r y o n e recognizes the
Negroes as fellow Ameri-
cans, however inferior thtei
class, but very few Britons
accept the West Indians as
anything but out s i d e rs.
V h e r ea s the American
Negro can feel the dignity of
a c i t i ze n fighting for his
rights the West Indian is
thrust i n t o the degrading
r o e of a visitor unsure of
his reception: we cannot yet
accept our relationship.
You find this difference
disturbingly reflected in the
fears of the two groups at
present. American Negro
leaders closest to the fr o n t
" Ilire now SCnsC among [nelr
supporters a dangerous im-
patience with the rate of pro-
gress and fear that one racial
riot might set off a chain
reaction through the country.
They point gloomily to the
steady rise of the B 1 a c k
Muslim Movement whose
aim quite simply is to segre-
gate the white man. The
West Indians in Britain fear
violence not from their own
groups but from us.
The most experienced
immigrants I know t h i n k
that if the present high rate
of unemployment lasts much
longer the frustration of the
unemployed whites will
force them to find a scape-
goat. The politicians are too
remote at least until the
next election; so is official-
d o in. But the West In-
dians are within easy reach -
those who still have j o b s.

and a budding novelist, to

Iledgement with grateful thanks.

ly with a circulation of over
to,ooo, h a s proved to be
one of the hardiest of the
West Indian papers started
here since: the first wave ot
immigration. Most of th:
paper-s have lasted o n 1 y a
year or two, but the "Gaz-
ette," founded in 1958, is
still going strong and-with
magazine "Flamingo" is
considered to be one of the
leading voices of the West
Indians here. This is im-
portant because the W e s i
Indians, have so few public
voices of their own.
TJr J. - -, -- -
t h e i r own Government
representatives or the odd
British MP or organisation
to speak for them. What
these voices say to us is often
far from the West Indians'
own thoughts--- as far as
the world of officialdom and
do-goodism from the frank-
ness of a private home.
Brixton, where the "Gazette" has
its office above a record shop, is one
of the main West Indian areas in
London but so far one of the least
troubled. It has had its share of
Fascist scrawls on walls and of
discrimination over housing, but the
West Indians accept these: insults
philosophically after learning to
distinguish between the real Britain
and the Britain of their dreams
And there are fewer dreams now.
This is the biggest chance since
the first wave of immigration. The
West Indians now know far more
about what to expect before they
arrive and yet- such is the power
of Britain in their imaginations-they
all seem to come still very much pre-
disposed in our favour. For they
feel the relationship still even if we
don't-the relationship based on liv-
ing for so long under British rule,
with British institutions, British
books British teachers:acquiring the
same kind of brainwashing as we do
They came to Britain after the
Second World War not only to
escape unemployment at home, to
finds jobs, but to see the alma mater
that always lay beyond their horizons.
They arrived in those early days
as wide-eyed and as idealistic about
Britain as British people used to be
about the Empire. If we did not
live up to these ideals it was not our

tsult: nc M l''- y c( L'd ,!\ I r. But

refusil to acieit that tihey had 'le
r gii to cotIe to bhe disiilix'ioncd.
Wve wo. c::tily nr caring 1nu the
West Indians but ourselves: our own
NEARLY all of us took this
attitude. Even the people who got
such a masochistic tihrll from beat-
ing their breasts about our Empire
sins no more responded to this West
Indian idealism than the rest of us.
You can see the result today. In
Brixton now- -as I found, too, on a
recent v.sit to Notting Hill and
Birnnghanm and Manchester-there
is a scse of a missed opportunity.
If we could have recognized our
relationship then, what agonies of
introspection over the state of Britain
might, we have saved ourselves now!
For recognition would have im-
plied we had come to terms with
the past- -and with ourselves--which
we haven't yet done. It might
have helped if we had appreciated
our good luck tha tne West Indians
came over here with an extraordinary
lack of bitterness. Friendship was
made easy. What bitterness they
have now they have acquired here-
from us.
It must be hard to come so far to
justify your illusions only to have
them shattered; it must be equally
hard to Lome so far to escape unem-
ployment and to till into it hire.

where the local cinema is now called
the "Unemployment Cinema" by
the West Indians. After they check
at the Labour Lxchange that no jobs
have turned up they frequently escape
into the cinema for the day. You
can get in for a shilling for the early
show and it is often full: one cinema
at least booming in hard times.
All the men Italked with there
were philosophical about their situa-
tion: all intended to return home
when they could save the money and
so they had an aim to sustain them.
They hoped to take home enough
to buy a few acres and 'hbe some-
body," but to be home would really
be enough-- home with the sun, the
relatives, the sense of belonging.
Their illusions now related to the
West Indies, not to Britain: they had
forgotten the bad things at home or
didn't talk about them.
In their spontaneity, their enthu-
siasm, their witty slang that refreshes
our tired language, they also put fresh
life into aspects of Briush life that
our weary sophistication no longer
allows us to enjoy. Their comments
about British habits are as amusing
as the shafts of the homegrown sati-
rists and far less depressing. As they
talk about the discriminating em-
ployers or the antagonism of some
of the British workers they are bitter
and yet never essentially destructive,
for the WestIndians-and this had
better be said quickly, for such words
are no longer used-have a great
sense of happiness and love: they do
not understand the puritan urge to-
wards self-destruction. This leads
them into all kinds of errors in try-
ing to get into our closed society,
but whatever they do, it does not
make oir failure any less of a lost

and we are now merely another coun-
try where work might be available,
but with fewer opportunities than the
United .States,
This is probably too bitter an io-
terpretation because it seems to me
that the ghost of Britain still haunts
West Indian dreams. The main
effect of our attitude, as I have seen
it over ten years of knowing West In-
dians here, has been to make them
more conscious of being West Indians
instead ofJamaicans, Trinid.adians,
or natives of whatever island they
come from. Being classed together
here as West Indians has made them
forget many of their differences and
the wish for federation is now very
strong among them.
But what effect has their being
here had on us i Ifvou speak sym-
pathetically of them many people still
respond as if you were being dislo-
yal and were praising foreigners at
the expense of ourselves. They men-
tion the West Indians who have been
goaled, who have kept brothels or
taken drugs, as, ifthey.were represen-
tative figures, and"yet they would t-
think Britain fairly represented by
our d.lInquents ,and hipsters.

men' spell began.
Yet if ine West Indies fears of
more riots come true we will be
the 1' sets. More than they will.
People tended to ignore the
Notttng Hill riot and the other
similar riots by saying they were
the work of toughs and teddy
boys. nothing to do witn hetri.
But if the conntrv hann't created
the climate the rins would never
ltave happened. The West In-
dians because: ne,, had been put
inio a low naio,.al class, were re-
garded as fair g-in e They still are.

dien and doing well, past the

(few--as anywhere else-but real)
past the courtingc uples, an opti-
mist would still hope that here
we may face our past: live with
it here on day-to day terms,
accept it and by so doing, use it
to find ourselves in the present.
For the final impression is
this-and I still find it incredi-
ble, however true: the West
Indians really rate our country
higher, take it more seriously
(though not solemnly), than
most of us do now. and they get
more fun out of it. This faith we
could learn from them, this and
much more, for above all they
are good for the extremes of our
puritanism which drive us to
suppression instead of express.
sion; to hatred instead of love.

He took it as a compliment and shook hands warmly. But
in the case of the carnival fire mystery, that courageous
person or persons who may clear up our grave doubts
would deserve more than the considerable sum of $1,ooo.
He or she would deserve the approbation and protection

into the normal channels of trust and good will.


WHILE we sit here in Dom ii c a
waiting for a crumb of news, the
Chief Ministers of six West Indian is-
lands and the Premier of Barbados are
gathered around a council table with their
advisers making another round of pre-
paratory decisions which will affect our
joint destinies. They may consider that
they have a mandate from their electo-
rates to play such roles, but the manner
in which they conduct their deliberations
and inform their electorates is the business
of the people, and we are all anxious to
know what is going on.
These men do not now represent only
their Party members but the Govern-
ments of their territories, which include
opposition. In Antigua and St Kitts,
where the opposition is weak and the ruling
Party also controls the trade union move-
ment, (as in, effect it does to a large
extent in St. Lucia), they can be said
to speak for organised Labour. That

But there ar. degrees of opposition
throughout the islands which must be
taken seriously. In Dominica and St.
Vincent, the votes in the capital towns
during recent local elections went against
the Government. In St. Lucia, five
out of twelve Legislative Council mem-
bers came out against the White Paper.
Montserrat has demand to have "li g h t
thrown on the issues of the moment, if
the future of the people of the West In-
dies is not to be further darkened." In
St. Kitts there are voices c a lli n g for
"mature organisation along the Ii n e s
which have been tested and tried in other
countries." Grenada is still in limbo.
Let us make it quite clear that t h i s
newspaper is strongly pro-federalist. We

Domestic Science
For Boys

A subject for a school essay set
in the textbooks is "A speech to be
made at a me.tig of a Debating
Society for or against the motion-
'that boys and girls should be
taught cooking and housewifery"
A number of girls which I now
teach have expressed cogent reasons
in support of the motion. One pa-
per which I examined said that a
married couple should both be able
to cook and perform other domestic
duties: the husband could then take
over when the wife was sick (parti-
cularly if no servant was employed).
Another essay gave the same reason
for the husband being able to look
after a baby.
Yet another girl pointed out the
difficulty and embarrassment expert.
enced when neither wife nor hus-
band can prepare a meal or do any
housework. As one girl said "most
young men cannot even boil an egg."
In general all the girls supported the
motion and stressed that boys should
be able to do cooking and
housework. In fairness I should
say that quite a few young men are
able to press their own trousers and
get themselves a simple meal,
Might I suggest that one of our
societies use this motion as the sub-
ject of a debate?

Political Mistakes

In July 1949 Dominica bad its
first shipment of bananas to U.
K. undat a fifteen years contract.
On the result of production from
the various areas it was decided
that reception stations should be
placed at Roseau, Portsmouth,
and Siliibury.

With the good tidings of bana-
nas rising to 61 cis. per lb. hop-
ing for a better price, soon all
the estates owners went in for
bananas, but soon found the
price going as far down as 3 3/4
cts. per Ib
In the early fifties the other
groups of the Windwards joined
in banana planting, imported
thousands of our plants and soon
out-produced us with less and
poorer soil. Why? here have
been inquiries Into Caribbee
Products fire, into Roseau fire,
into tha business of D. B. G. A.,
into Animal Slaugh'er at Stock
Farm, into Gold at LaPlaine. into
Citrus, inte R.T. C. 'n o P.W.D.,
and others. Since 1955-56 it was
published that almost 75% of
Dominica's revenue is derived
from the banana industry. Why
no' inquire into the most pro-
ductive areas and make them
motorable for the output of more
ban.inas? As a soldier I have
lived in all the Windward Islands.
As a hunter I know the heart of
Domiaica's forest. As a driver 1
have travelled to almost every
bit of motorable roads in the
Island and I know where banan-
as up to 100 lb used to grow and
can still be grown wi hout ferti-
lizer or spray. A'd that is in the
heights of Silisbury, but we have
been maliciously kept back due
to lack of roads for political
grievances though producing
over 100 000 stems per year.

nraoaed Catchesa

Sir,- This 1963 cricket season
can well be termed the season of
dropped catches, and quite frankly if
thing' continue to be so our boys
will surely fail to live up to expecta-
tions in the coming Goodwill
Tournament which is to take place
in Grenada in May.
Of the fifteen (IS) matches played
so fir this season my tallying of
dropped catches have reached the
Iso mark, and make no mistake
about it our regular island players are
the greatest offenders.
The lack of slip specialists and
close to the wicket fieldsmen can
clearly be seen by anyone with a
knowledge of the game.
The short leg position which is
so vital in the game today has been
discarded by all team captains and
are now things of the past. There
is nothing more thrilling to watch
than a good batsman going for a
glance on the leg side and the ball
smartly snapped up by a close to the
wicket fieldsman.
I can recall seeing one good catch
taken in the slips so far this season,
and it was not long before I realized
it was a fluke, for in the very sai I
over this same player dropped a sim-
ple one even before the applause
which greeted his brilliant catch had
Every cricketer, and every cricket
fan knows, batting and bowling are
not the only things in cricket.
Therefore our fielding on the
ground and in the air, will have to
be of a high standard if we are to go
through the coming series in Grenada.
A good fielding side has the con-
fidence that, whatever the size of its
score and however, lacking in pene-
tration its bowling, their opponents

When we were bowled out for 48
runs in the first innings against St.
Lucia in the 1961 Tournament
played in St. Lucia. the general
opinion was that Dominica had no
chance unless they were prepared to

rightly all the catches were held.
St. Lucia were bowled out for 42
runs, the last wicket falling to a
brilliant catch taken by P. Simon,
at short fine leg, a catch which will
long be remembered by those who
saw it. How he held on to it I do
not know. It was the type of catch
that would inspire any one.

S Alvin had a dream. And when h e awoke he told his mother
and his many brothers and sisters about it. It was about the Govern-
ment. No, it was about his family or was it the family acting like
the Government: He is still not sure but he knows it seemed real
enough: Alvin's daddy, Peter, was the Chief Minister in his dream.
And Peter was going to plant some figs and some dasheen just like
he had always done every year. Only the dasheen holes never were deep
enough and they were always too close together. The banana roots were
never soaked in a chemical to kill warms and borers and they were never
planted deep enough either. So the crop was always poor. 'And the
brother, Clarence, didn't bring the fertilizer to put around the bananas
because he couldn't get transport for the fertilizer. Clarence seemed to be
the Minister for Communications andWorks, Alvin said.
Francis, Alvin's older brother asked: "Was I in the dream '" But
Alvin was not sure whether it was Francis or the Minister for Trade & Pro-
duction. "You were supposed to get a job at Bath Estate and with the
money you earned, you were going to buy the fertilizer, or pay the transport,
or both; I forget which, But Mama had so many children to feed, the
money didn't reach."
"You mean to say," interrupted his Father, "that as the Chief Minis-
ter I didn't learn any new method of planting; that I didn't notice how
others got bigger crops; that I didn't learn a lesson from seeing other peas-
ants getting larger yield from bananas a"
"Well, yes," admitted Alvin. "You just plod along in the same old
way your Daddy did. You never heard what they told you at the DBA
and when you saw the way figs should be planted at Woodford Hill, you
ignored it. No wonder we don't have enough money to feed ourselves
properly. And as for Clarence, its just like our airport, the link with the
outside world; yet there's no telephone service to Roseau! Clarence couldn't
get the fertilizer because he had no money for transport and Francis couldn't
buy the fertilizer because the money he had went to feed all the children.
Now having children is all right but we have too many, just like there are
too many Government clerks... and by the time they all get paid, there's no
money left to repair the roads or install a decent telephone line from the
airport to Roseau!"
"You people should talk!" said Alvin. "Remember last year when I
bought that raincoat from the Statesr" They all did remember tha. Poor
Alvin had sent away for an ordinary raincoat and when it arrived it took
him a whole day to get the raincoat o't of Customs. The forms he had to
buy nd carry to the shipper; then shipper had to check anifitrs, invoices
and other documents: then back to C'usrnmi nnce mnre ehile Ao,,p ;m,

meti more to collect the Customs duty than the duty was worth, plus
Alvin's lost day! One of the sisters had written up the episode for a school
paper pointing out that if she multiplied the time lost on all imports to tha
island it equaled the entire income from all of St. Joseph! The teacher wouldn't
accept the paper. He said it was "not patriotic".
"I'd say you had a nightmare-not a dream," said Franeis.
"I'm glad he did have the dream," Peter replied, "at least now I'm
going to take stock of the way I plant from now on. Just cause 'my Dad-
dy did it that way" doesn't make it the best way. I plan to really study the
methods used by really prosperous farmers "
"Yes," said Clarence. "we all tend to think, well, its this way all over
And its not, really. Its like Alvin said: just because Trinidad has an ine-
fficient Customs system, doesn't mean we have to model our's after it. And
you, Sis, go and get at job a Astaphans instead of staying home looking
after the kinds We need the extra money 'cause this time we're going to
get both Aldrin to kill the banana borers and fertilizer to make the crop
amount to something."
"Its just like in my dream-once we got busy everything seemed to
work right,'
"Why do you keep harping on the "telephone from the airport"?"
asked his sister.
"Well its just that if we are to attract new businesses to Dominica,
we must have decent roads, and how's it going to look when people fly in
to our island and they can't even telephone our largest city to m a k e an
appointment, or, get a reservation, or ah... to see when or if the Minis-
ter for Trade and Production will talk to him'"
Mama knew what her son was tal k i n g about as she had been to
Jamaica once. "Alvin's absolutely right. We forget just how backward
we are here," she said with a sigh, "and unless we try to improve ourselves
we can't expect to get any new companies to come here. Its just an end.
less life of drudgery and near starvation We go on, year afier year, doing
the same old things while the rest of the world is progressing. And we
have to buy the products made on the outside with the tiny incomes we
Make here on the inside. How can we get industry if we don't h a v e
better roads and communications and how can we get the money for these
things if we squander what little money we earn on such a high overhead
of people in Governmenta"

Something About Government -- II St.Lucia, St.Vin-

From the Royal Bank of Canada's Monthly Letter (March)

Machinery of Governmiint

The Civi l Service is a most important part of the
machinery of government. Without a well-trained a n d
honest Civil Service, efficient government is impossible. It
is uton this Service that we demand to see that the govern-
ment's policies are realized in action.
The interests of the private citizen are affected to a great
extent by the actions of civil servants. Initiative, respon-
siveness, and friendly human relations are needed. The
citizen has a right to expect that his affairs will be d e a lt
with effectively and expeditiously, and also that his person-
al feelings will be sympathetically and fairly considered.
The Civil Service must be conscious of the public's
dislike for some of the manifestations of bureaucracy. It is
true that whether we live under the most liberal of demo-
cracies or the most totalitarian of despotisms, we are being
served by appointed officials. Frequen ly they are charged
w i t h making rules that govern their carrying out of the
details of broad legislation enacted by Parliament. T h a t
they do so with the humanity of citizens in mind is imper-

There is a growing and justifiable impatience of mul-
tiplying the filling up of forms, every one of which seems to
provide a new foundation upon which further a y e r s of
f o r m s are built. Some of this might be overcome if the
forms were freed of official gobbledygook -- which means
pomposity, woolliness and wordiness -- and presented with
a smile.

Tests of Government

Government is to be judged on its merit. This may be assessed by
answering three questions: What does it propose to do? How does it
intend to do it? Does it live up to its promise;
The realism of action must follow integrity of purpose if a government
is to be effective. Canadian civilization rests upon a social heritage which
many other countries have not enjoyed We have an attitude toward life
demanding greatness of our leaders and honesty in their promises; fairness
toward all citizens with undue pressure upon none; economy in administra-
tion directed toward the greater development of the good life We prefer
piecemeal change to revolution, but we do not want advancement to be
unduly put off.
It is easy to think that the best of everything cannot be attained until
the total desires of the whole human race have been met, but we have law-
making power only in Canada and cannot put off our own improvement
while waiting for world-wide perfection.
At the same time we must nut become too self-centred. The demo-
cracy of Athens lasted for a century or so at the long t. And why did it
end. Aristophanes, who knew the democratic greatness of Athens, put
these words into the mouth of one of his characters: "If two orators pro-
posed, one to build ships of war and one to increase official salaries the
salaries man would beat the ships of war man in a canter." The Athenian
democracy, whose power was based on the sea, perished within a generation
of the warning. As Lord Baldwin said in an address at the University of
Toronto in 1939: "The rhetorician, the demagogue and the sophist had
done their work." Plutarch tells us that the Athenians, from being sober,
thrifty and self-supporting people became "lovers of expense, intemperance
and license".
There are slumps when it seems that our parliamentary institutions,
like clock-work toys, have run down. There are times when, from the
bright plateaux of individual freedom and individual responsibility which
our forefathers precariously attained, there has been a steady falling back
toward the dark valleys of dependence and serfdom.
But through selecting good government a nation can arrest these trends,
and may live such a life as the passage of time cannot make ugly. To do
so, citizens must seek excellence, cultivate freedom from prejudice, develop
the capacity to recognize good government, and determine that what is
shoddy shall never be accepted as first-class.
John Stuart Mill wrote in Representative Government: ''A people
may prefer a free government, but if from indolence, or carelessness, or
cowardice, or want of public spirit they are unequal to the exertions
necessary for preserving it they are unlikely long to enjoy it."

italist reasoning and you come to re-
gard even trouser buttons as strategic
material, for they leave a soldier's
hand free to hold his gun". Citing
the row over sending German oil
pipes to Russia and American an-
novance at the sale of Viscounts to
China, "'The Times" agrees that
trade cannot be divorced entirely
from politics. It goes on: "The
main issue, however, is the nature of
the cold war, and Mr. Erroll grasp-
ed the nettle firmly when he said
(on2oth March) that more trade
with the Soviet bloc would be use-
ful politically as well as economical-
ly.'" American arguments that the
proper aim of the West should be to
put as much strain on the Com-
munist economies as possible deserve
recongition but, adds "The Tim.s,"
"they lead ultimately in the wrong
direction". The leader ends: "The
need today is to reduce antagonism
and increase contact between the two
sides. Trading helps t o achieve
both, and if it also reduces economic
imbalance so much the better .. .
Refusal to trade tends to have a
marginal effect economically and a
very damaging effect politically."
