Order-in-Council Sets Sombre Note
THE Carnival Season opened on a somewhat sombre note
this week with the publication of an OrderinCouncil
under the Peace Preservation Act of 1895. It was this act
which in 1895 provoked a riot at the attempt to curb the
.excesses of Carnival and the police were overpowered !
This year's order wisely
forbids "sensay type cos,
tures" (which means those
n.ade of scraps of cloth,
banana trash, crocus bags or
rope) to prevent a repetition
of last year's tragedy and the
sad happenings occurring
during several previous mas,
querades. Fireworks and
bombs ate also banned, as
are weapons including sticks,
stones and bottles. Masks

Carnival Queen Show
The big stage event of the
season is the Carnival Queen
show which unfortunately
comes off after we have gone
to press. On Friday night
seven beauties paraded before
the judges at the Carib
Cinema. They were Lu,
cienne Caudeiron (Fruit
Juice Cordial), Lyn Robin
(Miss North Eastern District,
sponsored by the Melville
Hall Jaycees), G I e n d a

Patricia Monelle (Johnnie

(Building & Insurance),
Allison Trotter (Ford

(Cocktail Rum and Picnic
Supplies). Though t he
evening dresses were entirely
local productions, much of
the fancy dress costume
material and accessories were
ordered from Trinidad.
Following the shows on
Thursday and Friday nights
at the Carib, there Were
successful dances at the DGS

working ceastlessly with Cypriani,
Marryshow, Manley and others to
establish the Caribbean Labour

It is proper that West Indians

The Prisoner -- The Priest and the

"So you see", said the priest, you have only two more
Funny how time didn't seem alive to him now.
There was a time when every second required carefull plann,
ing. Now only the dead drifting of a world. Glimpses of
the past wiped out the words of the priest.
(Elaine! Oh Eline! O God! Why, Why, Why?)
He shook violently. In front of him the priest continued
"Two more days, my son. Two more days to make
your peace with God ..."
The priest sooke smoothly, like a valley breeze moan-
ing through the forest trees.
"What is this world, my boy, but misery and..sorrowsi

heaven! Redemption is never too far away. You must
repent now. You must repent arid confess.: Remember

Two more days!
But they took two days to catch him. All those dogs

hungry man . Oh! Ohl Oh! Go away!
(Swaying slightly, he stood on the narrow wooden
steps that distinguished all the small houses in Queen's Lane
and pushed open some shutters above the door. She
"Hello Jonas," she said cautiously, "It making two
days now I don' see you".
The filthy nigga, only money she ever thought of.
"Stop talking damn nonsense, move fast!" His heavy,
black face was seared by a scraggy beard. His eyes were
dull, hard ivory. The heat from the sun caused greasy
sweat to form between his kinky hair-hair and roll down
his fat neck. He stank of run and sweat. But that was
the least of his worries. He pushed open the plywood door,
gripped her and went inside.
Dam' you Elaine!)
The priest was still speaking.
... "You have no one now, my friend no com,
panions not even your enemies are here. Only God
and yourself. You are alone. Won't you give in a little?
Have a little faith in the power of the Almighty... ?"
O Lawd, de man talking about faith Did he not have faith
in Elaine? Oh yes! Now was the time to have faith -
in this stinking, rotten hole. 0 hell! Yes, faith in hell!
"Ha, ha, ha!" he moaned.
("Look, de boys by de river waiting' on me. Hurry

"SO THEY SAY"--
BY BOB & RAY
We had the pleasure of interviewing a famous old
newspaper man from Chicago, USA, who visited Dom'
inica on the Federal Paln last time that boat was here.
He told us of his impressions of Dominica, as he came
ashore in the launch, as he strolled about Roseau, as he
rode up the Imperial Road, down the Layou and back
Here is a man who has travelled widely in his latter
years. He has visited the so-called fabulous island of
Tahiti in the South Pacific, has seen so-called picturesque
Capti off the toe of Italy's boot, has gone across breath,
taking Swiss alps, photographed the magnificent beaty of
Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanganyika, Africa. He has seen
many of the fabled islands and of course the Virgins, the
Grenadines, the Florida Keys.
So quite naturally we were speechless when he told us
Dominica tops them all in sheer rugged, primitive beauty.
We engaged him in deep conversation trying to determine if
he was just "trying to make us feel good" or was he selling
ing us white lies about Dominica's "grandeur" as he called
it. And it seemed to come from h:s wife too as she sat
there nodding her head in emphatic approval of his remarks.
People of Dominica: you are living on the world's
most scenic speck of land on earth! That in effect is what
this man said.
We of course remarked that this scenic beauty did
little but hinder getting bread to eat here and he replied
that if the world were more civilized, they, the world's more
prosperous nations, would see to it that Dominica became
one big paik, a- huge reserve of nature. Scenic railways
should be built, he said, that would allow 'those more
wealthy citizens to come here and view nature's wonders
He became slightly irritated when we asked what to
do about the great rains we:ting the peolevewng the
mountains and gorges on Dominica. He said people by
the thousands flock to "Maid of The Mist" waterfalls on
the Canadianside of the border at Niagara Falls getting
soaked to the skin just to view this mighty spectacular
of nature. "They've built shelters for the people to stand
under", he said, 'and rent them raincoats to wear if they
wish to walk out and get a closer look."
He said the rain forests of Puerto Rico which is laced
back and forrh by wide pitch roads for the thousands of
cars bearing tourists to see these vine/draped trees are not
nearly as impressive as that mile or two piece of road be/
tween Sylvania and the Layou. The summit of Mount
Trois Pitori as seen from Pont Cassd, he said, was one of
the most beautiful sights he had ever seen and wondered if
a road could be built to the top of this mountain !
The White Mountains of New Hampshire in the US,
he told us, are more formidable to build roads ever. Gales
of icy wind blast the area io months of the year, he con,
tinted, yet a concrete highway, two/cars wide, winds up
and up for 12,000 feet, to the top of Mount Washington
in New Hampshire. And Trois Pitons is only half as
high as this, he reminded us.
Well, we have rain, we told him again. "Fiddle,
sticks" he said. "Today's engineers can build a road
anywhere if people so desire it." And that seemed to end
the talk. When "people desire it" it will be done.
So they say.

I told him that we must
believe Education w a s
among the terms of reference
of the Commission, and we
should let them see under
what condition, education is
carried on in Portsmouth.
He said "that is just what I
think". And he saw that

Commission was received
there. W hat transpired

Portsmouth is privileged to have
a solid building which is a direct
result of the Moyne's Commission

I mean when I savywe should cher,

It cannot be said that the Ports,
mouth Govt. School is not fulfilling
the role intended, that is 'Educa,

ers of race, colour and creed." Far
from being a Methodist School,
there wbs never a time when non'

there have been times when no
Protestant was to be found on the
staff; and instead of closing the St.
John's School, it is steadily employ.

This was what Mr. Robert
Douglas, Member of Council at
the time, had called a meeting to
tell thz people, and for which he
suffered rebuke and much annoy-
ance. Those obtaining employ-
ment at the school ar;d Portsmouth
generally should never be ungrate,
ful to this gentleman.
Sad to say, however, the
school's nine vear; existence shows
that neither the Government nor
the people of Portsmouth have
demonstrated their gratitude and
appreciation of such a generous
gesture coming directly fro-n the
Commission. Government has
not thought it worth its while
to give attention to rods to
the school and to beautifying the
surroundings. Moreover the num-
