On my return from Martinique on
Tuesday August 25 I read in the
August 22 issue of the Dominica
Herald a letter written by a certain
Charles purpcrt.n3 t- reexamine
the issue of expulsion with me, who
had in a letter appearing in the
Dominica Chronicle on Augus I and
in the Dominica Herald on August
8, attempted to defend S.M.A. on
the question of expulsion. Without
a doubt, Charles failed to achieve
his purpose, either deliberately or
inadvertently. He only touched up-
on the question of expulsion, while
the greater part of his letter was
devoted to a feeble and spineless
invective against my personality.
He stated that I "with much
emphasis condone expulsion without
regard for the human element or
Christian background which the
said school claims." Human beings
have their weakn-sses. God knows
this and forgives them their sins up
to a certain point. That is why we
-t S.M.A. give boys a chance, such
as I described in my previous letter.
But ifCharles thinks that in order to
be Christ:an one must not expel
people from anything or must allow
peoi le to do what they want, does
he not indicate that he believes
(when it is convenient, ofcourse!)
that Christ, whom the Bible reports
to have driven sellers and buyers out
of the temple for turning the
"House of Prayer" into a "den of
thieves", is the most unChristian of
all Or is it that he is ignorant of
the principles and tenets of the
Christian way of life? Perhaps, too,
J=S 16tL Du SIcIuuut i 'a ui an
good taste.- But unless he is imita-
ting the Latin writer Cicero, who
in his writings often uses the majes-
tic plural ("we") to designate him-
self, does Charles or any of his
accomphces realise that it is foolish,
dishonourable and in bad taste to be
so sly, so deceitful?
Permit me to dwell upon
another point. Every p e r s o n in
Dominica has at least two names -
a first name and a surname. Charles
signed nis letter with only one name,
and so did not reveal his full identity,
although he was writing against
someone whose identity was well
known. Is this not an unmistakable
sign of cowardice, which c'n easily
be covered up with the word "pru-
dence" or "discretion'?
St. Thomas Aquinas, world re,
owned Catholic philosopher and
theologian, wrote in his Summa
Theologica: "Operatio se,'uitu- ess:."
(As a being acts, so it is.) Perhaps
I should call Charles an educated
fool, a sardonic snob, or even a
monkey's un-le; but I refrain.
Thank you very much, madami
for your space.

Birth Pill And Poverty
The Vatican's observer to the United Nations Food
and Agriculture Organisation says that he was misquoted
last week by a speaker at the Methodist Church's annual
"I had been correctly quoted in the "Guardian" inter,
view (ofJuly 4) but nowhere in that interview did I say
that there is no connection between population and poverty.
Also, the speaker, Mr. Rogers (the Rev. Edward Rogers, a
past president of the Methodist Church), has failed to see the
difference betweenra concomitant and a cause.
I never said the plain nor.sense which he has attribute i
to me. I have said, however, again and again, that even
away with poverty."
Monsigror Luigi Ligutti, an American and the Vati-
can's observer to FAO since 1946, has long been a student
of the population problems in Latin America and rejects
the notion that the Roman Catholic Church has been
responsible for poverty there.
"The Church in that area is itself very poor," he said.
"All the income property in Latin America, from the
Texas border to Patgorta, does not equal the income
property owned by one (Anglican) parish, Trinity of Wall
Street. It is just as wrong to blame the Catholic Church
for the social injustices in South America as it would be to
blame the Protestants, the Baptists, and others for the social
injustices in the Southern states of the US."
Monsignor Ligutti thinks that much of the planned
parenthood movement is now being financed by some of
the pharmaceutical companies who are makers of the birth

devote their time and funds to a plan for the redistribution
of the population and the world's food supply. Some

"It is international social injustice to keep people on

The Best Answers
Mgr Ligutti is not convinced by the "economic pie"
theory that fewer mouths would mean more food. In
fact, he sees as dangerous any "miracle or disaster" which
would reduce the world's population. "This would have
the effect of sanctifying the status quo, and particularly
in places where now there is already social injustice."

Whenever the controversy about
birth control flres up, it is remark,
able how seldom anyone argues
from the woman's point ofview.
People write and talk auhoritatively
about whether or not the country can
support the rapidly expanding ic,
creasein population, they discuss
the religious aspect, they quotesta-
tistics to bolster up.their par:cular
opinions. But few people takeinto
account the felingsand wishes of
the thousands of women w.ho
are mothers and who are after all,
the ones most intimately concerned
with the effects of the Froblcm.
--Tire- Wmei's ipilni0on
Now it is natural for most x'omen
towant babies but what woman
wants to have more children than
she can afford; and what woman
wants to weaken her body by bear,
ing a child every year for several
years? What woman wants another
baby when she and her husband are
finding it difficult to feed and clothe
the children they already have?
When she knows that sne may have
to keep one of the bigger children
from school to help out at homer
What woman wants another baby
before she has recovered her strength
from the one before!
I know of a young girl of 2o
who has 6 children. Two children
are still caking bottle and one is on
the breast. Do you thing she wants
another one this year Sae is a good
mother and loves her husband and
children but they live in one room
unaer somebody's house and me
man cannot find a regular job.
Sometimes they do not have enough
to eat and sometimes the children on
bottles have to be content with
sugar and water while the eldest has
to stay away from school because he
has no shoes.
If you were to ask her opinion
about birth control she would not be
able to tell you anything about the
state of the country's economy or the
moral implications of birth control.
But can you deny that she would
know what birnh control information
would mean to here Or if you
prefer, ask the women who work in
the cnefields who already have six
or seven children; or ask the woman
who is working to help her husband
build a house; and last but not
least, ask the woman who is living
with, but not married to a man who
Many people have confused ideas
and feelings about sex and as birth
control is so closely connected with
sex, they carry this confusion into
their thinking about birth control.
But all b.rth control means is trying
to regulate the size of the family and
having babies only when both
parents want them. It may be a
matter of spacing them out so that
they come every two years instead of
every year. Or it may be waiting
until a home is built or a husband
finds a job, or even when he re-
covers from an illness and can re-
urn to work. It may also mean
stopping altogether when tie nan
and his wife feel that they have had
enough and t'-e eldest children are
beginning to marry and produce
Methods Of Birth Control
Trinidad is lucky in having access
to 4ll the mo;t modern methods that
science has devised and most Doc/
tors are willing to advise on these
matters. Everyone can have a choice
of methods and even people of strong
religious convictions can choose be
tween abstinence and what is called
the "safe period" or rhythm method.
This consists of working out the
times cfthe month when a woman is
fertile and avoiding these dates. It
involves a certain amount of calcu-
lation but any Doctor can explain
how it is done and as long as the
woman keeps a careful check she
can avoid becoming pregnant.
The seco.id group of methods in,
voives the use of certain tabl,ts or
..i.-m '- h-o~.r ., ,.r .
rubber devices at the time of inter,
Course. These are obtainable at
most drug stores at reasonable prices
and are effective as long as they are
used without fail. The rubber device
for womea must be fitted by a Doc-
tor and will last for a year or two if
handled carefully, blt it should be
checked every few months in case
i: I et; its shape or the rubber dete-
riorates. Mo;u ofthese methods cost
between $r. oo and $5.oo but some
of them can work out to less than
50 per time.
The third type of method consists
of a course of 20 pillq to be taken
by mouth by the woman every
month. They must be taken regu-
larly according to the instructions
given by the Doctor who prescribes
then and if done so, they will pro-
tect the woman for the whole month
without her having to use anything
else. I these cist between $2.oo0 nd
$3.50 per month in Trinidad.
Within the past few months a
new method has been introduced in-
to Trinidad but at present only one
or two Dactors are using it. It con-
sists of a little plastic coil placed
right inside the wo-nb by a doctor
and left there until the husband and
wife want another baby when it can
be removed easily.

Site For U. W. I.
The site chosen for the College of
Arts artd Science of the University of
the West Indies in Barbados, viz.
19l acres in the Cave Hill area of
St. Michael, is to be acquired by the
Government of Barbados and made
available to the University. At
present the College is using tempor-
ary buildings at the Trade Fair Site
in Bridgetown. The cost of erect-
ing the necessary buildings on the
new site will be met by a grant from
the British Government amounting
to $i,90,0oo0 (W.I.), i.e. 64oo,ooo.
At the end of the first year of the
College's existence a short ceremony
was held at the College during

that such decentralisation will speed up and greatly facilUate'
the payment of insurance benefits after windstorms." '
Before the Association can assume the rcspm'l sii.,ty,
for recording of sales, and in order to establish an'.effeative
system, it is essential for Winban's existing register of hold'l
ings in Dominica to be completely revised and brought
The urgent necessity of a proper and comprehensive
register was only too painfully emphasized by the difficult
ties encountered by the Baard and its management -in the
allocation and distribution of assistance to growers under
the Hurricane Rehabilitation Scheme.
Therefore, Winban has authorized the Board to un'
Holdings and thereafter, to continue to act as its agent for
the registration of holdings i:n this island under the Wind-(
ward Islands Banana Insurance Ordinance 1960.
Accordingly, as from 7th September, 1964, the, re,
vision of the Register of Holdings will commence and
growers are earnestly requested to give all necessary assistance
to the District Branch Secretaries, Leaf Spot Inspectors and
other officers of the Association engaged on this project.
The revision will be undertaken in three phases as
Phase 1. Verification and amendment of the Register
as it now stands.
Phase 2. Processing of applications on hand.
Phase 3. Compulsory registration of all unregistered

At the same time, the Board will introduce a system
of Growers' Selling Cards which will be fully.'explained
in a further bulletin. It may be briefly stated here that the
Growers' Selling Card to be presented by each grower,
without fail, on every occasion he sells his bananas, will
ensure and facilitate the accurate recording of his sales.
Adverting to Phase i of the revision -- verification
and amendment of holdings already registered, the Leaf Spot
Inspector will br!ng to you and assist you to complete an
Application for Registration of Holding form in duplicate.
Please enter all the required information including particu'

which you sell your bananas, or your Dealer, for purposes
of the new Growers' Selling Card system mentioned above).
The duplicate of the form will be returned to you
duly signed and dated by the General Manager of this

THE 1964 football season sched-
uled to start tomorrow will not
commence on this appointed date.
A D.A.S.A. communique indicates
that only three clubs had registered by
Tuesday ist. This, of course, is ve-
ry unsatisfactory and possibly the
deadline .or registration was too soon
and clubs consequently were slow in
responding. 1 here should be no
excuse, however, as the date has been
put back another week, and it is rea-
sonable to assume that by Monday
most clubs will have paid their fees
and iLte;:sve training will begin.
Something is very wrong at the
moment with attitudes of players and
clubs. A general disinteret is a very
mild way of putting it. But how far
can this get us. I make another ap-
pealto footballers to live up to their
responsibilities and try to start the
season promptly and efficiently.
With an early start, one can look
forward to return matches, a feature
which enables many a club to recov-
