"Undesirable Alien" says Govt.
OHN Peltz Presmont, the man who tried (disr:garding
personal danger) to beat out the flames from Carnival
Fire Victims with his bare hands, has just recer-el 1 letter
from Govrnement asking him to show cause by July first as
to why he should not be deported as an undesirable alien. No
charges or details are preferred against him and attempts to
obtain information from official sources provoked nothing
more concrete than veiled hints of "disturbing the peace."

Stale Rigid Law
The order under which deporta-
tions are made is an anachronistic
emergency law dating from World
War I, which enables anyone not of
Brittsh Birth to be expelled without
reason, even if he should have invest-
ed a million dollars in Dominica;
Americans contemplating the invest-

be shocked by this official behaviour,
even though they may differ in per-
sonality and attitude from Presmont
We believe this is a matter on
which questions should be asked in
the British House of Commons.

IN THE CABINET
By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter V
On the afternoon of my ministerial reception for sixty
guests, I reflected how I had never given a real party for
more than twenty people in a1l my life before, and t h e n
under great strain. Fortunately the hotel was doing all the
catering, and Dr. Moose eye did all the planning. Before
I left my office to dress, he handed me a list of surnames.
There were no Christian names or prefixes. I a s k e d
"How many of these gucs:s are ladies?"
Dr. Mooseeye looked incredibly shocked. "Lidies?
This is a party for the Regional Labour Board. A stag
party of course."
"So you mean I'm to give a stag party tonight?"
"Certainly, Minister." I could see he thought I was
being naive and difficult. He added, in a gen:le persua-

the way down she squeezed my h a n d and whispered:
"This place is as full cf spies as Li s b o n in wartime.

Dominica's not-so-good tel-phone
system had a quick look over last
week from Cable & Wircless'
Telephone Engineer, L. C. Hill
Mr. Hill who paid his three-day
visit after an informal request from
Government, went around all the
exchanges and some of the sub-
exchanges with Telephone Superin-
tendent MicNamara and had an
excellent first hand idea of the diffi-
culties, especially with regard to
overhead lines and circuitous systems
that have to be contended with.
Although (as he himself empha-
ised) the survey was too quick to
enable any proper estimate to be
made of the cost of improving our
present system (as for instance by the
installation of V. H. F. point-
to-point radio-telephony) he will
be able to report to his employers
on the chief difficulties and a more
detailed study would have to be
made later. Mr. Hill was much
impressed with the high standard of
maintenance at the Roseau exchange.
It is clear that fi n ancial
considerations rule out any possibility
of an automatic exchange for Roseau
for some time to come, but it is
hoped that some improvement will
soon be noticed in the telephone
service between Roseau and the

ter for Labour and Soc'al Services
met a large number of s c h o o 1
teachers from the Dominica Gram-
mar S c h oo 1, the Convent High
School, the St. Mary's Academy
and the Wesley High School at
C.H.S., to place before them the
importance o f inservice training
which Government ha s secured
through the services of Dr. Muller,
Extra-Mural Resident Tutor, and
Mr. A.E. Foubister, Canadian
The Minister pointed out that
results were not good in secondary
schools, and at a time when coun-
tries more advanced in education
were overhauling their educational
systems and neighboring islands
had better results, Dominica ought
to make every effort to improve its
standards. Dr. Muller supported
the need for inservice training and
for not just waiting to be given a
course or scholarship, but go ahead
by studying for an external degree
at the University of the West Indies.
Mr. Foubister in very forceful
terms emphasized the importance of
training for all teachers if they were
to improve their own status, The
question of increased pay was de-
pendent upon what teachers were
prepared to do to improve their
qualifications. All four Head mis-
tresses and Masters had at a pre-
vious meeting of Heads admitted
the need for training.
Both Dr. Muller and Mr. Foab-
ister were carrying out inspections at
Secondary Schools with a view to
assessing the potential and compet-
ence of teachers.

Why are so many pec-pls prone to label ALL Dominicans No Good?
Its like a Natv'oal Psychosi., an island wide menial illness. We wonder
if Bajans ralk about fellow bajans the same way, or Antignans aga :st
Antiguars. We have lived on both of thfse places but don't recall the
downright malicious way Domincians castigate other Dominicans. Lets
try to be on griard not to blacdguard our fellow citizens- b"cau'C while
YOU ale blackguarding him, HE is blackgurarding you, too! And even
if its true that ail Dominicans Are Not Good, lets not talk about it in front
of strangers and visitors. It will give them a bad impression of the p'acc!
Abou: a fortnight ago we had the opportun ty to view Dominica
from the air Soms friends flew he:e from the State and took us aloft to
see the island as the birds see it. Man, Look bananas! It appears that
one day soon we'll just about double our banana out put Looking down
we could see hundreds of new banana cutivations in various stages of
growth. You can tell the new plantings from the old ones and there seems
to be as many acres of new figs, four, five, six months along, than there
.: ;ire of the fields now producing. Then there were dozens of cleared acres
L non some of the most inaccessible places too where new banana plants are
just being put in From various drives around the island its quite apparent
we are planting a great many bananas but from the air, whew! you see all.
S Yes, we predict there will be nearly One Million Dollars MORE
bananas shipped fiom Dom'nica between the period of the next twelve
months as compared to the same twelve previous months... and that's a lot of
income, and its NOT all CDC or Geest either, not by a long shot! We
personally know more than twenty young Dominicas who last yeae were
cutting 7, 8. ;o stems a fortnight and who now are cutting 30, 35 or 40'
a fortnight.. and THATS progress!
V Two or three thousand years ago when a man died, they buried his
S wife with him whether she was dead or not! And they buried his servants
with him (they killed them first, of course) and all of his cattle, swine,
S sheep and goats . .this as to make certain that the poolr chapvwould not
be lonesome nor hungry! Wee have progressed a long way from that time
and we only close down business when he dies . not just the business
thedecease was operating but ALL shops close down for the day. "A
mark of respect" they say. What is respect? The dictionary says: "Esteem,
deferential regard, also honoz, act of noticing with attention, undue favour
Soor bias, partiality. . But it is actually showing respect to a merchant to.
close all shops when Ie dies? It'would have been much nicer if all shops
h.,j had close down while he was living . then he could have sold more
But to be serious about it. wouldn't a better "mark of respect" be, for
example, to get all shops to stay open and extra six hours that day, donat-
ing all clerk's time, all profit to. say, scholarship to a High School boy
or g'rl in modern merchandising abroad To ask all 'those people who
loved and honored the deceased to give something timeobrmoney (they
both mean the same, you know!) As it is now,-a man di's and we take, a

four o'clock in the afternoon If you think about it a little we chink you
will agree that we are confusing the issue so believe that to respect somebody
means we should stop work, go home, sit down and take it easy! Who
are we "respecting", the deceased or own tired back? Your are right, its
just another excuse to "quit work.'" So they say!
