GOVT. MINIST.


"That Cursed Paoer" --
Hon. W. S. Stevens

THE Minister of Labour and Social Affairs, Mr. W. S.
Stevens, described the DOMINICA HERALD in bitter
tones as "that curse of a newspaper" at the Labour Party
meeting in Pottersville last Monday. This is not the first
occasion on w h i c h Mr. Stevens has irrupted against a
w ee k 1 y publication with which at one time he had a
hbhindr-rhe-scenes association.


Although Mr. Stevens
described the Chief Minis-
ter's pedestrian oratory as
a "soul stirring speech" (and
a contemporary newspaper
appears to some extent to a-
;,igree with this critique), to
the H ERA LD reporters,
utterances by all three Minis-
ters were of the usual bromi-
dic repetitious phraseology,
_loyful news, however, for
which the Governwmenlr7-o
Dominica may be applaud-
ed, is that Mr. LeBlane has
done something for his con-
stituency (Newtown). Ros-
eau Boys School will be
moved into more spacious
premises in the old Gram-
mar School, and the tiny
tots will take over the stone
barn now used by Roseau
boys. Other refreshing i;.for-
mation was that Dominica's
Nurses may expect more fay
and better quarters and
that the T.B. Ward will
soon be ready for patients.
The Secretary o' Stl'e for the
Colonies was blam-d for the
hold-up of WHO Integrated
Health programme for the
island d. Mr. Stevens
deprecated "those men who
do not appreciate what we
are doing."
Thin clapping greeting
Mr. Ducreay s eulogy of free
enterprise, and his mention
of the production of Irish
potatoes, oils and fats, pum-
ice investors and the Wotton
Waven hotel. He was
speaking in his own consti-
tuency. Government, said
Mr. Ducreay, did not want
anybody to come to Domin-
ica and "injure her econ-
omy," he stood for private
enterprise in a free society,
ind not for nationalisation,


"although we are socialists.'
These combined remarks
would surely puzzle Mr,
Harold Wilson.
The Hon, Chief Minister gol
slieh'ly more acclaim ifrer his re-
sume of the points already made ir
a market-place meeting. He said
that "the onus was on Britain" to
make financial provision for the
small islands for ten years, gave the
three well known alternatives of
Crown Colony, Unitary Statehood
,--ad.Ecderation,_ and his opinion
that the next Little 7 meeting should
be held in the West Indies to save
expenses. After that he rambled
through cocoa prices of the past,
civil rights and responsibilities, his
anti-Communist attitude, the debt
of $400,000 left over from the
former regime (of which Britain had
excused $200,000), the $120,000
which the Town Council should
spend for cleaning and maintaining
Roseau streets, and the $3oo,ooo
spent on the new Grammar School
("others may say they planned it").
After sug ,stinc that those who
paid too highly for fish should act as
informers to Government and not
encourage a "shoo-shoo" attitude,
and giving out the interesting news
that there are between 1o,ooo and
14,ooo Dominicans now in Guade-
loupe, the C, M, confined himself
to minor matters such as Baron's car
tyres, and taxis vs, limousines in
London. The two best statements
made by him were "a gentleman's
word is his bond" and that "every
man in Dominica would be given
an opportunity regardless of his
colour, class or creed."

As to what truth thoughts like these contain I am dubious. I am
positive however that signs, beliefs' and omens fill the minds of far too, MARIGOT
many in our community. The following paints bear evidence.
