THE witch-hunt is now over, and the
talkative American is on his way
out. That leaves us with a number of
unanswered questions, including the one
to be put in the House of Commons.
Omissions are, however, most revealing,
and remind us of the famous lines:

Since it is subject to dictates.
One of the questions remaining in the
forefront of our minds is, what does the
Dominica Labour Party stand for? We
know what it was designed to stand for,

that the name PLa4bour is used to cover a

We d.clare that the Governmeit
Party in this island is not a true Labour
Party at all in the British sense. Let us
give some reasons. The Ministers and
th e i r group are supposed to secure for
workers by hand or by brain the full
fruits of their industry, and they are not do-
ing so. We should like to have actual un-
employment and underemployment figures.
They favour monopoly rather than the "best


Our sympathy goes out to the people
of British Guiana who are racked by
internal dissensions almost amounting to
civil war. What began as an industrial
dispute has now become a national poli-
tical struggle. The saddest thing of all
is that two groups of people, m o s t of
them very poor, who had survived as
fellow citizens the days of slavery and in-
dentured labour, are engaged in fratrici-
dal strife. Once again it has taken Bri-
tish troops to restore order.
How different is this situation from the
great 1. L. O. sessions in Geneva, when
delegates of African and of Indian des-
cent join hands as friends and brothers to
oppose industrial and racial injustices!
We know what the root cause of the

By Phyllis Shand Allfrey

From Chapter II

On the evening a ft e r my elevation to Ministerial
status I came down in the hotel lift (those were the days
before Sese and her sewing machine arrived.) In the
outer lobby I met the Prime Minister. Straightaway I
noticed that he was wearing a new pair of shoes --- an
easy observation, since we had in common a tendency to
look shabby.
"Are you considering walking?" asked the Prime
"Yes, Sir I am considering it."
"Then take a walk with me round the Savannah."
It was an affectionate command. We fell into step down
the stone steps. At night the savannah looked as big as
my natal island. I had on light black sandals. The
Prime Minister's new shoes squeaked.
All around the savannah people loitered, leaning
against trees, sitting in couples on benches eating fruit and
nuts. Now and then someone stood to attention and
called out to Sir Grantley. "Good night, my Lord."
"They begin to recognize us," he said modestly.
In any country his features, Etruscan or country gen-
tletnan, would have been recognisable, whatever the colour
of the skin stretched over the excellent lines. But it was
when he spoke that the indifferent bystanders came to life
with salutations. His accent was West Indian Wessex
We talked of how the gentle people of the world

skin, had never been a British schoolgirl) of cricket, "And

"a Minister At,-1 ut my'eIlectorate ensured that, Sir."
Then he came to the coconut vendors with their carts
loaded with immense green nuts, We stopped, and an
Indian citizen of our new land hacked off the tip of the
coconut so that I might drink straight from the large green
nut, not quite adroitly pouring the juice from a height into
my month. "Not at this time of night, for me," said the
Prim: Minister.
The route was long, circular, fascinating. Contain-
ed within its green acres was the race course and it grand-
stand, the gamblers' paradise, immense source of revenue
to government and lucky citizens. It was only as we
approached the bright lights of the Hotel thbt I noticed
how the Prime Minister lagged, almost limping. I did not
then realise how my leader had literal feet of clay, real clay,
human flesh, liable to pain and trouble. We crossed to
the vestibule. He took my hand at the lift.
"Goodnight, my child."
"Goodnight, Sir."
He held the lift with a gesture to the attendant.
"Don't call me Sir again."
"I can't help it. You are the only man I've really
enjoyed calling Sir."
He smiled his wily foxy smile and lifted a brown
hand in a deprecatory gesture. The' lift doors squeezed
together. There were some American and Canadian
tourists in the hotel lobby. They had turned away their
eyes as we came up the steps, when we approached the
lift I heard a middle-aged lady murmur "disgusting".
She looked disappointed when the lift swallowed up a
solitary bowed figure.

I was lucky o see in Pointe-

by these Euopean actors.
In the moonlit recreation park,
Place La Victoire, a huge crowd
stood together while in the enclosure

built in the park; and the many ac-

The play had begun with a duel
between two rival men a father
and a would-be son-in-law. A very
attractive opening that was. Remark-

people do indeed appreciate what is cultural and uplifting.,
Adults ranging from late teens to the near. eighties
and scores of upper former from both P r i m ar y and
Secondary Schools, began taking their seats as soon as the
doors were opened at 7.30 p.m. All eyes were glued on
the stage which, contrary to our local custom, had its
curtains drawn back; and every member ef the audience
took a deep breath of pleased anticipation, when, after the
inAt.3Wc.ry p b e c h y the Mini'ter for' I' 'lour and .
Social Services the Shakespearean e x p e r t s came on
stage and began to'demonstrate how they themselves had
set about understanding and interpreting some of the most
difficult passages of Macbeth..
Some members of the audience had suffered' some-
w h a t of a jolt on learning that they would not see the
tragedy itself performed; but that the entertainment would
take the shape of a "dramatized lecture." Mr. Harold
Lang and his colleagues were so vivid, so articulate and
so utterly witty that we were more than compensated for
that earlier feeling of disappointment.

The sixth of July will remain a
re- letter day for those who were
fortunate enough to secure tickets
for that unforgettable performance.
The audience was held spellbound
by Mr. Lang's masterful interpre-
tation of King Lear's soliloquoy,
and all over the hall could be heard
gasps of surprise and admiration
when that same gentlemen "became"
indeed and in truth Lady Macbeth
herself! The two "assistants" gave
us a clearer understanding of Mac-
beth's "inner duel", and of the
mental struggle which shook the
two protagonists in the England
icene. Last but not least, Mr. Geo-
frey Keir's performance of a stiff-
necked, hidebound professor of
English literature was a masterpiece
if charac er-acting.
Several other points left their im-
pact on the audience and one was
he visible bond between the actors
t every moment of the performance.
Four actors each with his own part
ular style, his own peculiar way of
moving, and his own special tone
if voice and mode of speech all
showed a common love of careful
fiction, precise action and above
ill, complete dictatation to their
profession. Proof of their expert
performance lies in the fact, that
while Messrs Lang, Amer and

Hallam wore modern sportwear yet
they captured the imagination of
their audience to such an extent,
that while each new portrayal and
each new rendering there came to the
mind's eye vision of those same act-
ors dressed in the rich velvet and
satin garb of the characters being
It was only fitting that we thank
the British Council for allowing us
this splendid opportunity, while
hoping this will be the first of
many similar opportunities for the
cultural advancement of our people.

Mr. Ronald Ngala Leader Of Opposition In Kenya

Mr. Ronald Ngala, president of the Kenya African Democratic
Union leads the Opposition in the Kenya Government, following the
defeat of his party in the recent elections, (BIS)


One of our more respected citizens was saying the
_the- 4rs j-th__t Donintreain arelheing held back because of
two old laws: the tax of income law and the Customs
duty law. He said people are, chiding themselves for not
planting crops as profitably as they should, not moderniz-
ing the banana cultivationis, for not having, more and bet-
ter roads, etc. etc. But these things, he say, are minor
when one compares the arbitrary old income tax law and
the stiff Customs duty laws imposed on the citizens of the
island. These two stupid laws, he claims, will continue
to hold back the island even if and when we double ban-
ana production, if and when we have broad highways all
about and if and w hen we plan cro ,s cf r d beans, Iri h po-
tatoes and other fcodsiufls that are now largely imported.
Citing as an example, he continued, that when a man
paints his shop or place of business to protect the wood
and metal surfaces from rot and rust, he is not allowed by
the silly old income tax law to charge the paint and labor
off to his cost doing business. No, this is a "capital im-
provement" and, under this out-dited la w, no capital
improvement can be listed as an expense. If a man buys
a new fridge to put in his shop, this is paid for out of his
income, but still, the cost of the fridge (an imrrovemsnt)
cannot be deducted as part of the cost of doing business.
Or let the estate owner build a new road, for say $6,000-
on his place no! this cannot be deducted from the in,
come of the estate. Letssay this same estate earns, profits
from the sale of bananas, $4,000. A nd the owner or
owners put in the road for $6,000. On the balance sheer
for his estate, then, there is a loss for the year of $2,000
But not from he standpointt of tle income tax law. It say
the estate made $4,000.
Now here's the point: if every time a man spends
hard-earned cash to better his business, make it bigger
make it pay more, make it emp'oy more pecplie..
every time be does this he cannot deduct this expense front
his overall income, well then, he cannot, will not, improve
or enlarge or expand. And THIS is what is holding
Dominica back!
If we take the case of Mr I. Will Work of Mahaut who earns
$ro,ooo a yearfrom his banana cultivation, This man pays 50% o, the
income as tax. Now he has|$5,oooremaining. Suppose the follow buys
a Bedford truck for $5 ooo (on which the government makes a coo
$1,ooo Customs duty), Mr. Work cannot deduct the cost of his trucl
from his income, although his income purchased the trucks But Mr.
Work buys the truck and is now broke, broke, broke ,., be paid

$5,ooo to goyerrment for income tax and he paid $4 o00 for the truck
and $r,ooo customs ditty on it .... so he's broke! How.s he going to
feed his family for a whole year? Well, the truth is, he can't -- so he
doesn't buy the truck and government doesn't get their $',ooo0 customs :
duty ~Ior the duty on all the gasoline the truck will burn over th- next
five year: cther!) The island loses, the Dominican, Mr. Work, loses :
Maha'it loses another truck (and a lot of people don't get a free Vep to a
town!). Loss, Loss, Loss! On account of a stupid, out-dated, near- ;
sighted tax law. So sad our respec:ed friend,
We looked around at other islands, other countries that seem to I e
going ahead. What do they do about capital improvements? Well,
dear reader the governments of those prosperous places allow liberal tax !
credits for improvements for, and its very simple, when a businessman
spends money to improve his business he's going to do MORE business '
and (unless he continues to expand forever) someday he'll pay a tax on a
much larger income. Dominican tax laws are a true case of killing the
goose before she can lay the golden egg. Should we modernize our
methods ofrasing bananas? Certainly. But at the same time, we
should modernize our income tax laws-to encourage, not penalize the
man who is making capital improvements to this island . to himself
of course, but lets not be foolish e iou3h to think that a dollar spent here i
benefits only a few -- it benefits everyone, directly and indirectly.
Deprecia.ion on a building in Roseau? Plenty of it. But unless it I
"houses machine" the income tax law does not allow a depreciation
allowance. Penalty for the man who owns the building. Why must we
penalize ourselves, hold ourselves back? We fight the mountainous
terrain, we fight the weather, we fight competition for our products from
other islands so why fight each other, why hold ourselves back,
A certain employee in a certain bank said that if he lived in Gren-
ada and had the same income as he has here, he would pay 800o less
per year income tax! Our taxes are high, they are unjust, they don't
make sense, they tax the source of all income, incentive.
A hotel owner from Martinique visited Dominica a short while ago.
He said he would have to pay an income tax last year of 128,oo0 ..
think of it! Tax of S$28,oco on his income. But, the chap said, his
Government will forgive any amount of this tax that is ploughedd back
in Martinique" so he spent, yes you guessed it, $rz8,oou improvement on
his business. He put in a new modern dining ronm. a-completely new
kitchen, bought six new cars to rent to his hotel guests and added air
conditioning to all his public rooms! The result will be MOREhusiness
... on wnich he will have to pay an even greater tax next year (unless
be spends it in improvements) but you get the point. The islands to the
south of us have leapeadahead year after year and of course the people
beuefit from the expenditures and then they, the people pay more taxes.
If the hotel:manhad earned enough income in order to pay
$i apooo ina-es. oaDmini'aa souH-wav been = sa cd io pay-ihec
full $z128ooo, What then could he have done to improve his botld
Nothing. Precisely. The tax law stagnates conditions. We don't go
ahead, we go backward. But we ned an income to pay government
salaries, they say, And more and more people ask: what about a land
tax? Let a fair and just tax be placed on productive, fertile yet idle land.
This will raise the needed finds to operate government-- without hold-
ing back anyone- for if any person objects to paying a land tax, let
that person raie one stem of figs per acre and this would automatically
pay the tax! So they say.

Last Day Collapse
The West Indies Team is beyond
any doubt the most fascinating in
the cricket world, They are always
in a hurry. They hurry to victory,
they hurry to defeat When True-
man broke through the powerful
West Indies batting on Tuesday, I
couldn't help thinking of a similar
incident a few weeks ago: I am
referring to the Dominica Team's
performance in Grenada recently.
The two performances are so similar
that I am forced to conclude that all
West Indies batsmen are helpless
'against the swinging ball.
Head Down, Tail Up

I say that Dexter is not a great
batsman. A great batsman may
lose form and have a string of low
score', but he does no" consistently
pass fifty and ge out. This has be.n
evinced in the last two series that
Dexter has played. He failed to get
a century against Australia on the
last tour. In this present series, his
scores show that he is in form. but is
losing concentration jnst when he
looks in command.

There was a collapse after Dexter's
