.'e publishing in three parts, through the courtesy of the Royal
Canada, a series on "The Volunteer in Our Society" which appear-
'e of their recent newsletters.

'he Volunteer In Our Society

rilizat!on and the Nature of Society
lization apparently is of such a nature that the further we progr ss
.... more difficult we find it to live together.
We are beginning to think about how poor a place earth would be if
the. ..e.anization.ofliving were to deprive us of the contacts we gain in
voluntary association with our neighbours. The Governor General of
Canada, said early, in 1962: "as our society grows ever more and more
complicated and more personal, the need for voluntary work becomes
greater, for it is essential that there be a preserved a balance between com-
plexity and conscience."
One does nor need to have a romantically heightened view of giving
oneself away, but only to remember that the contribution m'de by ind vi-
duals and groups voluntarily is the real foundation of democratic society, and
that it is one of the ways in which, in spite of mechanization and automa-
tion, we remain human.
Society is the kind of life we live in organized communities, where
interests and purpose are common to all. A "social" person does not
mean one who enjoys parties, but, as Dr. Samuel Johnson defined "social"
in his dictionary of 1752: a person "fit for soc ery."
Besides sdcia there are personal values in. voluntary service. The
volunteer realizes the quality of experience that can be his through sharing
viewpo nts and working with others ir pursuit of both individual and
co- on goals.
The "why" of working with others is not greatly important. The
Talmudic principle is: "A man should,perform a righteous deed, even if he
ioes so only for ulterior motives, because he will thus learn to do the right
)r its own sake,"
You may wish for a sense of accomplishment, for the adventure of
something new, for a change of pace from the workaday world, for self-
:xpression, or only to belong. There is no better way to banish the blues
or to counteract the poison of world crises than by engaging in thoughful
work with and for others. The end result is se f-fulfilment, which is on a
higher plane than self interest.
Thete is no stereotyped wAy of being altruistic. Every man in a free
society can help in his ind;vidaal way to shape it; that is what sets him
apart from those in a slave society. He has ideas, opinions, interests and
abilities to contribute.
Giving service, and not putting on a, show, is the distinguishing fea-
the good member of society. Charles Dickens gave'us a portrait
in Little Dorrit: Mr. Casby,.the bold expanse of whose pa-
"I ,e:was so valuable to himselfiand so di
-seemtd bumfil of benevolence if only

a tuiough action that we become part of the setting around us and
participate in the transaction of living. If we wish to develop into fully
participating human beings we can do so by locating a social need and
offering the help it is in our power to give. "According to one's power"
was a favourite say ng of Socrates, and it is a saying of great substance.
Longfollow put it this way: "Give what you have. To someone, it may
be better than you dare to think."

The Nature of Society
Students of anthropology and archaeology have reason for amazement
when they consider the br-ef interval, scarcely a moment of the time this
earth has been in existence, in whiLh humanity has built up its present
society and civilization.
Social service, iil. broad sense as genuine interest in the welfare of
-others, is as uldas the beginning of that civilization, but perhaps it is time
for a restatement of our purpose.
In days when nations are so concerned with defence, we need to ask
ourselves whit we are defending. It is not enough to be satisfied with ex-
pansive theories of universal peace. They may be proclaimed and paraded
without any sacrifice of time or effort. What we must have is concrete
illustration of our interest in survival of our society, both what we receive
from it and the privilege of contributing to it. As was written in tae Re-
port of the Royal Commission oh National Development in the Arts, Letters
and Sciences: "It would be paradoxical to defend something which we are
unwilling to strengthen and which we even allow to decline.",
This is not a matter merely of broad interest: the interest is that of
everyone individually. In the long run and in the last resort self-interest
cannot be separated from the interests of the rest of the community.
By helping a class of need, whether it be in the field of destitution or
culture, of delinquency or health the voluntary worker is promoting and
protecting the welfare of all the community.
The self sufficing ingrown man has no validity in modem civilization
It is fundamental in democracy that citizens do not have to agree, but they
must take part. No one is solitary in his origm or solitary in his existence
Just what sort of groups and social institution will serve as the vehicle
for our participation depends ipon the cultural conditions involved in ou
life history and upon the opportunities we seize upon in our life envirnoment
He is wise who tries to act in a number of different capacities. Then mei

Castro Regime

The Internation Commission of

Geneva recently that the Castro
regime in Cuba is as guilty ofv'olat-

Batista dictatorship.
The Commission is a non-govern-

about 40 00ooo members of the legal
profession in 50 countries, including

and adds: "The criminal lei
of the Castro regime has aim

The Commission says it is not
able to verify or contradict allegations
that the number of people executed
under the Castro regime has exceeded
6,ooo and that 15o,000 are in pri-
son. It adds, however, that the
evidence submitted shows "the
cruelty with which the victorious
Cuban Revolution proceeds to de-

In Trouble

Indignation waxed high in Mont-
serrat at the end of last month, accord
ing to a correspondent, when the two
Commissioners for House and Land
Tax resigned and walked out of a
meeting. The Court of Assessment
consisted of a Chairman who is ex-
officio the Ficancial Secretary (Hon.
T.F.A. Perkins) and two appointed
members, J.C.L. Wall Esq., and
O.R. KclsiL.k Esq. Mr. Clifford
Wallis well-known in D minica,
his wife being Dominmcd-born and
he being the owner of the "Ripon".
Reason for the resignations were
given in a written statement by the
Commissioners, in which he V
accused the Government of mislead'

'ered a few days earlier to the people

Children's (Factual Test) Corner

Dear Boys and Girls,- -As Christinas approaches, our minds are turn-
ed towards making others happy. We generally send cards to those who
arefar awiy. Sometimes it is the only way that friends away keep in
toucn. The Christmas card from over the seas means that one friend re-
inembers the other. Those near and dear we think of in another way.
We show our love and appreciation to those we hold dear by giving them
gifts. The tcree Kings boug'ii gifts to the Infant Jesus at Bethlehem.
You know some good things can turn into bad and I think that is
what has happened to the question of giving gifts. Many people have come
to dread Christmas as it means spending money on gifts they can hardly
afford. That should not be. A gilt should not be valued in terms of its cost.
You children should be taught that no matter how expensive a gift may
be, it is the thought (of giving happiness) in the mind of the giver which,
should be appreciated.
Even grown-ups value a gift more if it is very expensive although they
mnay know that the giver gave no thought to the one who would receive it,
anid,' in the same way, an inexpensive gift chosen with all the love in the
world is not valued. This goes to show that we lay too much stress on
outward show and that our sense of values is poor.
In some large countries where families have the right idea, gifts for
dear friends and tur members of the family are hand-made by the giver;
Mamma can direct the making,of the present some time long before Christ-
mas. Here are :son e idt:s. A pct holder or pretty apron tor Auntie who
.kes to cook- a simple inexpen-ive fruit cake for granny who does not
bake any more--a bottle or two of your delicious sorrel for a good friend.--
a pretty pinafore for a litt'e friend. From Auntie for one of the boys a
pair of kn teed socks. Inexpensive ideas such a; hankie;, tray cloths, cro-
chetted doiLhs, home made candies, bouquets of flowers or potted plants all
make nice pr.sents. My present to a very dear relation is a potted poinsettia
-she loves poinsettias at Christmas.
We must not spoil the spirit of Christmas. Small as some of you
who read th's may be, you must learn to appreciate a loving th o u g ht
behind a gift and not its value. This, I think, will bring the spirit of
Christ back into .Christmas and we would all be happier for it.
So6 far, I think our old country folks have not lort the old Christmas
spirit., They s.iate thi good things fiom their garden with their neighbours
Well' as every one of you is..now on holiday, I..shall say cheri.a until

Fined For Cursing
His Mother
On a charge of indecent language

Dirty Work
On The Hill
Johnson St. Rose alias 'Hitler' a lab-
ourer of Morne Prosper, for assaulting
and beating Veron Semper on the 3th
August, was fined $15.00 including
compensation. Semper told the court
that she was on her way from work at
about 12.00 noon when she passed the-
accused and other of his friends going
up the hill in the same direction. St.
Rose began nicknaming her arid calling,'
'her all sorts of dirty names. As she
passed them and failed to look .round
the accused began to throw missiles after
her, one of which struck her and' tore
her skirt. A. $5-note which w as
wrapped in a bit of paper fell; accused
took it up and, called his friends' but
the complainant wisely left them there
and' hurried to her home. On the
charge of indecent language, Semper
was discharged with a, caution.
on 2nd November, Emmanuel Philip
was fined $o.0oo. The Court heard
that a policeman whilst on duty heard'
a voice outingg obscenities. The
policeman went into the yard of the
premises, and the accused ran into his
house and locked the door, continuing
with the same filthy expressions. Upon
investigation, it was discovered that the
person whom he was cursing had been
his own mother.

The C.D.C. h a v e extended their
cocoa collection and processing scheme
to cover almost the entire island. Al-
ready they have in operation a process-
ing plant at Melville Hall and they are
now converting one of the Dominica
Electricity Services buildings at Good-

gable storage space. At present their
buying and collection service operating
from the Melville Hall centre covers the
entire northern area from Capuchin to
Concord including Paix Bouche, Pen-
ville, Vieille Case. and Crapaud Hall.
They also operate a buying depot at
Castle Bruce which serves the needs of
that area. Cocoa is also bought at
Grandbay, Soufriere, La Plaine, Couli-
bistrie and the Layou Valley. The
Manager of Melville Hall estate is pre-
pared to open more buying points pro-
vided there is sufficient cocoa to justify
The cocoa is bought wet and the
prevailing price is 12 cents per It, which
is equivalent to 30 cents per 11. dry.
