DOMINICA HERALD


"60 THImY SA Y"--
BY BOB& RAY

The day after Hurricane Edith raked Dominica was a Thursday.
Debtis filled the streets, powers was cut off and people had been deprived
ct one full day of work because of the storm the day before, However,
when one p. m. came otn thursday, September 26th, shops and stores
banged shutters and doors shut like on any other Thursday, not to open NO.
for business again until Friday morning. There were extenuating cir-
ctmnstances: people needed food, fuel, clothing since they had lost some of 1
each or cise the power failure was creating a serious food crisis. But 2
NOTHING seems big enough, important enough, earth-shaking enough to 3
bring Dominica up short so that Dominicans ask each other: "Why 5
.ire ve operating our economy in such an old-fashioned way? Why 6
mnst we continue to live as our great-grand fathers did?" 7
Work on Sunday? Oh, No, terrible thought! But Martinique is 8
alive with activities on Sunday as the people go about clearing away the 9
terrible debris and destruction wrought by the same hurricane that hit us 10
a glancing blow. A tnaveller reports that construction gangs are working 11
'round the clock' rcbuildi.g homes, factories shops and stores in Fort de 12
France. Working neath dazzling flood-lights, the rebuilding continues 13
and when Sunday comes, they go right ahead, working, rebuilding. 15
Yes, they take an hour or so for church, our informant told us, but to 16
spend the whole day of Sunday in idleness when there is so much work 17
to do is unthinkable. 18
Can Dominica afford its leisure and slow-pace? Will Federation, 19
much less independence, ever come to people devoted to the time-con, 20
suming (and therefore costly) procedures that are on all sides of both 21
business and pleasure, yes, and in education While many other lands 22
ate doing their utmost to speed up the education process, on Dominica its 23
still "six weeks off at Christmas" and 'another 6 weeks off at Easter" and 25
oh, yes, another long holiday in July and August. Can Dominica live 26
on the same planet with countries whose y o u n g boys and girls are in 27
school, learning, studying 46, 48 to 50 weeks per year? 28

"SO THIY SAY"--
BY BOB & RAY


(Cont. from page 2)
On Monday next a large and luxurious cruise-ship will drop anchor
off our shores. Its passengers will want to come ashore aid see what Do-
minica is like. We could make a lasting impression on these once-in-a-
lifetime visitors if we do but on_ simple thing: eliminate begging. It the
police will spend a few extra minute, warning children and "professional
beggars" not to be caught begging f0om the tourists, this and this alone
will set Dominica apart from omcer Wett Indian ishnds. In Antigua its
embarrassing to watch the little urcnins put upon a strolling tourist in
St. John's In St. Th(.mas i' an older class of beggar who sticks out his
hand and mumbles "... haven't had a thing to e-it all
uay, sir .. ." Barbados has curbed the begging in the
business district of Bridgetown but in other parts of the
island it's the small children again who are allowed by
their parents to beg from tourists.
All Dominica has to do to be different is to com-
pletely remove the beggars from the streets while that part,
cular cruiseship is in harbour. The pas engers will notice
the absence of this annoying nuisance, remark about it to
each other and will tell theiz friends (and the press)
about it when they reach home: "Didn't see one beggar
the whole time we were on Dominic,!" Or, "You know
Jack, every island we visited in the Caribbean was swarm,
ing with beggars, adult beggars, child beggars, all sizes,
and shapes . except in Dominica. We didn't see one
beggar on the streets. Must be a very prosperous island.
Proud and polite people must live there. Next year my
wife and I plan to take the kids there for our entire two
week holiday. When I told my Dad about Dominica,
he said he wants to go there to retire . beautiful scenery,
ideal climate. . yes, Daminica is very different from those
other poor, rundown West Indian islands . ."
Several of the larger planters have told us they plan to
,devote more of their land to grapefruit, cocoa and coconuts.
The howling hurricane winds did much to convince them
ttat toirely on a one crop tor income is folly and if 's
wind this year that hurts you, next year it may be disease,
or more likely the competition of other places producing
bananas cheaper than it can be done on Dominica. The
spectre of the failure that can engulf the economy when
most of the income hangs on one crop, one fruit, one sup-
port is causing the thinking people on Dominica to replant,
yes, with several crops, different crops. So it's "an ill
wind that blows no one any good .." So They Say!

THE CHAIN OF COMMAND


The passage up the islands of M.V,
Federal Maple, carrying members of the
Interim Shipping Commission charged
by the' Regional Council of Ministers
with investigating the subsidized operation
of the two Canadian gifts ships, and in-
cidentally seeking for economies, brings to
our attention the dependence of Islands
on the power to communicate, This is


important since democratic government
depends on the communication of power,
and federations founder as much on hu,
man relations as we have often stated --
as on the hard rock of economics.
In our view no proposed Eastern Car-
ibbean Federation could afford NOT to
have such a minimal shipping service,
since (apart from passenger- and freight


statistics for the past years nowhere
will we find among the causes of
death that death was due to being
overclothed.
If we just for a few moments
examine man's dress fashions worn
all over the West Indian islands, we
will find that in Barbados and
Trinidad where the climate is hot,
test, the men are well dressed
throughout the day. These islands
have realized that the English pattern
of dress is the most economical and
practical in that it never changes


ersona)ly. When a Minister

a "top boss" in private indus-

and when one is dressed in a good
summer tweed, he is not only con-
sidered wIll dressed but nobody
knows whether it is the only suit he
possesses, especially when a little dry
cleaning makes it as fresh as any
new suit. The Panel expressed the
view that' the present day dress
makes serious inroads into the
economy of the people. Am I to
understand, if there is some truth in
that statement, that the apparel sug-
gested will be worn at all functions

the Panel examined all aspects of
this attire, take for instance the
appearance of a man with hairy legs
and chest or a man with gawky
legs a If on certain occasions we
aie still expected to conform to the
English fashion don't you think that
we ill then be increasing our war,
drobe by having two sets of apparel ?
If man took a true perspective of
himself he will find that the inroads
in his economy lie not in the
English fash on but in himself who
will not emancipate himself from
the slavery of his deadliest enemies
wine and women,
I noted that nothing was said of
the ladies' fashion, but I was quite
amused when I read that the West
Indian islands had the ideal climate
for a Nudist colony. Women's
clothing are designed to attract the
opposite sex, and if we are to use
the fashion approved for the man by
the Panel as the basis for fashioning
West Indian Women's dress, I am
afraid we will have to go a little
further up in the length of .he
woman's skirt in proportion to the
exposed portion of the man's legs
and we will arrive at nothing short
of the French "bikini". So I do
believe that the idea of a Nudist
Colony will in that way be achieved,
giving rise, I fear, to greater im-
morality.
The Panel raised the point that in
psesent day society man is considered

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1963

SPEECH BY G.M.
The Following Broadcast Speech Was Made On Tuesday over WIBS
Roseau:--
(Conllded from last wee!)
I wish to warn you also that so far the cost of da,
mage is estimated at almost $29,000 dollars, and it is not
likely that this amount will be forthcoming in which
cause priority will be given to the most deserving cases.
You may wish to know that considerable damage
was done to Government's buildings and the estimated
cost of repairs is in the vicinity of $58,oco dollars. While
the Houses Committee was carrying out their investigations
the Ministry of Trade and Production was actively engaged in assessing
the damage done to banana cultivations and other crops. In this con-
nection I wish to thank the Dominica Banana Association and leaf spot
Personnel for their effective co-operation which made it possible for us
to fina!ise our reports on Saturday the 5th of this month"
At present the field staff in cooperation with WINBAN are checking
the percentages of bananas mats destroyed in order to make all the neces,
sary information available so that youe assurance benefits may be assessed.
For full particulars you are advised to get in touch with the Dominica
Banana Growers' Association or WINBAN Representative.
The leaf spot staff will instruct you to start rehabilitation immedi-
ately after they have checked your fields and it is necessary in your own
interest to follow their instructions.
A considerable amount of work has already been done towards
clearing slides "n our roads. The Secretary of State having given his
approval for the expenditure of $5o.ooo for this purpose, but a lot still
remains to be done. I wish to express my appreciation for the efficient
manner in which the initial work was carried out by the Public Works
Department.
Representation has been made to the Secretary of State for additional
funds to repair the damaged roads, Water Supplies, Telephonts, Govfrn,
ment Buildings, Sea Walls, Jetties, and Portsmouth Electricity Supply
being the total amount estimated at S1I,o98788.oo.
All in all the total loss to Dominica in bananas, citmu, cocoa and
coconuts is estimated at $4 080,ooo.oo The Secretary of State has been
notified of the need of the following:-
(a) Fertilizer for free distribution to growers.
(b) Assistance in respect of borer control.
(c) Interim subsistence to farmers.
(d) Assistarce to the Domintia Banana Growers' Association to
meet operation costs. The totil estimated requirement being
$2,162,636.
In addition request has also been made for r,ooa tons of fertilizer in
respect of cocoa and coconut plantations. Bearing in mind that it is not
likely that all our requirements "ill be supp i:d from one source, we have
represented Dominica's case to :
(i) The American Consul General.
(ii) The High Commissioner for Canada.
(iii) The High Commissioner for Australia.
(iv) The Dutch Ambassador.
(v) The Charge d'Affaire of the Federal Republic of Germany.
(vi) The New Zealand Trade Commissioner.
On Monday the Minister of Trade and Production, the Honourable
N. A. N. Ducreay left Dominica for Barbados and Trinidad to hold di.;
cussions with the Representatives of other countries which maintain the
diplomatic offices in those t.vo territories in an effort to obtain additional
assistance. Mr. AD. Boyd, General Manager of the Dominica Banana
Growers' Association is accompanying the Minister as adviser,
In the meantime attempts are be:ng made to send a delegation at
Ministerial level in conjunction with the Windward Islands Banana Growers'
Association to London to hold discussions with the Secretary of State. Our
intention was that the Minister would proceed to London from Trinidad
but the Secretary of State has advised that since Mr. Whitelegg from the
Colonial Office is now in the islands and will obtain first hand informa-
tion of the financial situation created by Hurricane Ed th, in the Wind-
ward Islands, he would await Mr. Whitelegg's return to London before he
received the delegation.
Mr. Whitelegg left Dominica on Saturday after having examined our
estimates for 1964 and discussing the question of our need for financial as-
sistance as a result of the recent hurricane.
I am ;ndeed happy for the calmness exhibited by all in this disaster and
the reasonable approach which all and sundry are making to restore
what we have lost I must also offer the thanks of Government to the
Manager and Staff of the Commonwealth Development Corporation for
the ablemanne, in which the electricity supply has been re tored,
We are doing everything in our power at Government level to obtain
assistance; in the meantime I ask you to keep your chins up and return to
work with redoubled vigour so that in the near future we may look back
on this unhappy occasion as a challenge which was met with faith in God
and confidence in ourselves.

return to this later in this chapter.
I recognize that the suggestion
that civil sevants should be open to

volvtionary one. The power would
certainly have to be circumscribed
and not abused. We must,
however, face the realities of the sit-
uation if Parliament is to discharge

is an obvious myth that Ministers
can be responsible for everything
that goes on in their departments. In
the old days when government was
regulatory and that only in a small
field, it was conve, i:nt to main a n
the rule that civil servants were never

their department. The Minister took
all the blane as well as the praise. His
advisers were anonymous. But now if
we are to find out more of the truth
instead of battering our heads again,
st the cliches of ministerial speeches
we must occasionally probe into the
policy-making machinery and have
a right to examine the people who
really do the business.
Democratic control could be
made much easier if we carried out
three reforms: first, reconsider what
is a proper matter for; democratic
decision at all and how democracy
should use expert advice in coming
to such a decision; secondly, shed
some of Parliament's work to ...
regional authortiies on the one hand
and perhaps one day to wider
groupings such as Europe on the
other; and thirdly, equip private
members better to deal with the
principles at least of complex legis-
latiqn.

deals with reconstitution of the Cabinet

over expenditure. with supervision of the
nationalised industries, and with electoral
