STORIES AND SPORT
We are lucky with Ss. Starsports and the
short story appear to be the most.popular
features in the STAR. So first we will
give 'World Cup Willie', mascot of the big
international football contest opened by
H.MM the Queen last Monday, a corner of our
front page, remembering also how Roseau's
footballing Mayor spoke at a literary
function for the young on Thursday night.


SIt is now no secret that a. literary
movement is abroad in Dominida which
c t springs mainly from the youngest writers
Sof all -- some of them still at school.
SWe often find space for their work in our
'I.,-, .pages. because they have talent and the
movement is important: writers, Whatever
5. u.' their age, want to be read. Moreover these
t 'fledgling authors are already setting an
.-.-' vi: example for lands outside, and Martinique
in particular.
There are West Indian islands which excel in certain forms of art:
let us 'admit that Jamaica has been in the avant garde of painting,
sculpture and creative writing, that Trinidad is renowned for its visual
arts and-for the dance and the calypso; that Barbados has nurtured many
men of letters and one outstanding sculptor, while St. Lucia's potential
reached a summit in Derek Walcott's poetry. But no special island is as
yet celebrated for the plural creation of that most difficult form of
art -- the short story. For one story does not make a school, any more
than one swallow makes a summer. Wouldn't it be good if Dominica could
set the pace, the style, and the diversified pattern for a whole field of
short stories,, as vivid and fresh as a whole field of tropical wild-
flowers? The signs are that she may be on her way towards doing so.
A young lady was. giving us an account of her efforts to obtain a
'ping pong' this week. For the uniniated, a ping pong is a set of
passport photographs. As she told us the tale, so animatedly, with a
delightful turn of phrase and so much feeling for the old photographer's
mishaps, we felt we were listening .to a little story by someone like
Chekhov when young, set in a Dominica 'context. "Rush home and write
it all. downm we cried; and we hope the ping pong 'seeker took our advice.
Priests can write witty sporting short stories, too. If you don't
believe this, turn to our supplement' And for those writers who may
become a little conceited after their initial success., here is a true
anecdote. An author known as 'England'p greatest short story writer'
once told us that in all his long life he was always longing to meet by
accident some strang4r- reading one of his books (friends, he said, were
;pr.:-judiced'); he would ask the reader casually what his opinion was of
the tales. Time went on, and our friend was about 70 before he saw a
fellow in a Green Line bus concentrating deeply on a Penguin edition
of the stories. Our friend got into the seat near the other man as soon
as he could, and after a decent pause, asked: "Why do you find those
stories so interesting?" ..,o "Because they're SHORT'" replied the
reader in a ferocious tone, turning away from the author,

CO iiOfi WEALTH TODAY
We are indebted to the P.R.O.'s
Office of Government for those
copies of 'Commonwealth Today' with
the striking colour pictures of the
Queen and the Duke sitting in the
cricket pavilion. Her Majesty is
looking outwards at the crowd with an
intent seriousness, as if she has some
vision of Dominica's past and future,
The Duke of Edinburgh said last
Monday in Sheffield: "Before.the
/Commonwealth ceases to exist, its
critics will be long dead (pushing up
the daisies) Whatever may happen in
the future, no one should underesti-
mate what ;the Commonwealth has done
for the --world."
In Malawi, a new Commonwealth
Republic, Dr. Hastings Banda declared
last week: "Only Britain can solve
Rhodesia's crisis." He roundly
criticised African leaders who
thought the crisis could be resolved
by force.
-------------
Review of Commonwealth Committee
An eight-man committee which has been
reviewing Commonwealth organizations
with an eye to efficiency since
.--'.pril hopes to have the report ready
for the next Prime Ministers' Confer-
ence committee. Chairman Lord Shef-
field said. The Committee( was auth-
orized by the Conference of Common-
wealth Prime Ministers in Lagos,
Nigeria last June. The Prime Mihis-
ters, when establishing their Common-.
wealth Secretariat under Danadian
Diplomat, Arnold anith, wanted to fini
out whethbr some other bodies could
be integrated with the new secretar-
iat hence the review. A couple of
prime Ministera have lost either
lives or their positions since the
Nigeria meeting.

Papal Ruling Soon on Birth Ccntrol?
(excerpts from an article in the
Guardian, Britain).
It looks as if Roman Catholics may
not have to wait much longer for; a
new definition of their Church's.
teaching on birth control.
In his pastoral letter for Trinity
Sunday Cardinal Heenan of Westminster


dropped what sounds like a hint that
a papal decision is fairly imminent.
The Cardinal recently left for
Rome to preside over a section of
the Pope's Commission on Population
(popularly known as the birth con-
trol commission).
So many rumours. in the past have
said that a decision was coming soon
that Roman Catholics may prefer not.
to believe that their suspense is to
end until it is actually over. It is
now two years; since a commission of
55 experts was established by the
Pope to consider the subject of birth
control, among others. One rumour
has it that they reached a conclu-
sion several months ago, but that:
this was unacceptable'to the. Ppe.
There has certainly been anxiety
about the outcome.- among those who
want to see. the.,Church'si teaching.
drastically changed.....
500 notable Catholic laymen from
18 different countries the other day
petitioned the Pope and his bishops
in particularly strong terms to '
change the Church's teaching,. and
gave warning of the consequences to
its moral authority if this were not
done. The document said in:part:'
"No considerations can eliminate
the fact that for a humber"'of' nat--
ions, as for- innumerable well-inten-
tioned married couples, an effective
and practical regulation of fecun-
dity is not only a necessity but an
immediate duty. The Church cannot
take the responsibility before his-
tory of minimising one of the main
problems which humanity must face,
let alone of constituting an ob-
stacle to general research into real
rlutions: humanity expects a posi-
ive moral contribution from one of
the great. spiritual forces of the
world, "
The signatories may soonz know
whether their boldness has paid'off.

Gas for Britain


After several years drilling for
oil and gas in the North Sea several
big strikes have been made off the
coast of Britain. It is estimated
that to date over 4,000 million cu.
ft. of gas a day are available, suf-
ficient for Britain's needs for 45.
years. Many big industrial concerns
are already planning to change over
from oil-firing to gas for-processing.

BRIEF ENCOUNTER
The mood of the spectators was summed Vp by one little girl addressing
another: "If you don't support the Fathers, you better goo" The reaction
of one lay player after the match: "Now, Father Charles boy, he looked at
the left, then shot at right, .and voommmn.."
Pandemonium broke out when the men of the cloth arrived at Windsor Park.
One could see a Father of the post-conciliar Church in a clerical suit,
but with boots and shorts, my foot
There had been some toying with ideas to raise funds for the completion
of Fatima Church. One in particular, soon to be abandoned, was to create a
kind df "Singing Father", but the subject chosen, after singing the first
notes of "Sound of Music", came close to being arrested for disturbing the
peace. In all humility he asked not to be mentioned.
Then we thought of -ssembling some sort of "Beatific Beatles", but here
again, problems galore. We could not find four Fathers so favoured by
nature as to compete with the original cast in abundance of hairdo.
Why not a football match? No less a spirit than Satan himself must have
inspired the wicked Reverend who suggested this one. Many of us had played
at the college., but this was centuries ago...A walk to the pulpit, yes. A
drive to Morne Prosper, yes, Even the Boiling Lake. But football, never'
Yet, here they came, deeply convinced that the whole thing would be one
big joke. One had ordered a chair to be put close to the lines, One thought
of smoking his pipe in a quiet corner. But, lo and behold, these Customs
chaps were serious. Should never have chosen customs people anyhow. Did you
lever pass the customs without serious misgivings?
.. When that blasted whstle of His Worship the Mayor called us to orderJ,
"all former illusions were lost. "Morituri te salutant", like the gladia-
tors of old, and the old clergy lined up in battle array. Happily for us,
the general public never got to know how, secretly, we had sent an acolyte
to sprinkle that gaol with holy water.
One heated skirmish in front of Jacob Dib's sanctuary resulted in penal-
ty. Our captain was ready. Looking left, running straight and aiming right.
And...goalil This deserved a drink at least, but no respite, and back we
went. The first half seemed eternity. But no eternal bliss in that one.
When the end came, it was like Ezechiel's vision. An assortment of dry
bones trying to assemble, longing for the well-deserved grapefruit.
When that alarm clock of the Mayor woke us once more, no one could be-
lieve it. These were no longer clergy men walking proudly to the battle-
field. These were ghosts, forced to carry a heavy body, bruised and chasten-
ed by the ordeal. Customs were open now to any suggestions. "Father"
McIntyre, adopted member of the clergy, had to -call on all his resources.
To no avail. They scored. But there came an angel, all the way from Ports-
mouth, bless him. Call him Father Chauvet, and swallow away a happy tear.
He ran through the mud. Did he ever practice skiing, we do not know. But
what we know is that he arrived in front of that gaol. and spooned one over

How could we end this match with a draw? How were we going to face our
Bishop? What was the punishment in store if ever the Sacred Synod came to

Father walking up to you, as if to shake hands, and then deposit a nasty one
on your nose. That's exactly what he did to poor Dib. I believe they call
it a deposit. It certainly was. It came like a snake in the grass, a
"couresse". It definitely hypnotized Dib. He saw the ball, but that's about
all he remembered.

not have played better, if, to preserve his dignity, he had not been

Father Guery claim that the war in Algiers was a joke compared to this
massacre? Why has Father Bijloos aged so considerably in one day? Who
would have thought that Father Michelbrink, after being accustomed to see
* him taking strides of three feet, could develop into a real. "Flying Dutch-
man"? And what of Father Thomas, a true son of the soil, who did not de-
ceive us? As for the late vocation in the person of Mr. Williams who gal-
lently came to our reeeue. We do not even want to suggest what would have
happened, had Father Kelvin made part of the scenery!
The worst lot that ever could befall us, would be to repeat the stunt.

Martinque Prize Essay MY EIGHTEENTH. YEAR by Sonia T, Matthew
Well to begin with My Eighteenth Year was. a rather pleasant and yet a
sad one. At that time I lived next door to where, we now reside, and it
was during that time my father and brother went for a trip to Britain.
During that time we had many visitors with different ideas in politics,
different races and different tenets because my adopted parents are some
of the few people who really tolerate racial, political and creed differ-
ences. That's; why right now I am in the country with a lovely Canadian
nurse and feel quite at home with her. It is just the training I have had.
Therefore, I am looking back at things while travelling about, and writing
this ,,story.
The day my father and brother went over to England we left them after
the-plane had taken its flight and it was as though someone had died in
the family. We twe ladies going back home without our big and little gen-
tlemen felt at a great loss, bec:-u3e a house without a father is really
a divided' household. During that time my Mum and I missed them so much
that we decided to go to another country house which we rented at a place
called Belle-vue Rawle. The place lpas lovely, what with the birds singing,
the beautiful trees, lovely green grass and the coolness, It was really
gorgeous ? living there.
Then of course there was the house were olodiss K was, that one had to
be cared for, so we had two lovely Canadian teachers living there and our
servant Celeste. Celeste always had Sundays off, so I would usually have
to.go across the Old Ravine to have lunch with the teachers while Mum
stayed at home because she liked being alone at times, being a writer and
a poetL In thhi evenings she would come for me. It was during that time
that one day a group, of my school-friends: came up to meet us. across the
rgvines for mn g oes., then the next Sunday we went on a picnic and oh my'
. did it rain We got soaked to the full. Anyway we, did enjoy ourselves
There was of course the usual car trouble. Dad;was an engineer, but we
two were not, Mum knowing how to drive and I not even knowing how to drive,
So things' were rather difficult. We were not mechanically minded. So with-
out Dad the car gave much trouble. I can remember once when Mum and I went
down for me to go to church. We stopped to pick up the caretaker, after
dropping him, the car stalled and Ithere was Mum in a raging and peppery
mood_. We-used to call the Fiat car Old Mi fi and Oh God.! we used to give
children with large baskets of mangoes lifts. One afternoon the car stop-
ped on the hill and we had to put stones underneath the wheels. I can
remember: a gentleman testing to see if there was enough gas and wqter.
August holidays came and the Canadian teachers departed. We then had a
conservative visitor living at home he got on amply well with old 'Miss
M a conservative herself.
If was during ;that time I went t o my first ball with some Erench
people, a squadron leader and the conservative gentleman and it was rather
lovely. I :even got a prize. The only snag was that Mum had a broken hand
and couldn't come. I can remember it happened when she sent me up.to the
country district to spend some holidayswith my other set of relatives, On
my return to town, I heard the sad news, of how Mum had broken her hand and
'felt very badly about it. I waited and Mum arrived at the newspaper office
where she used t o work as editor. Well, to top it off, after the Canadian
girls departed we had to go back to live with Miss M6
The great, day came when Dad and Dave arrived back. Dave could talk like,
an English boy. He was fat and rosy. Dad looked much better after his re-st
and we were all happy to be together again. Dad brought many presents for
us. Ani he brought a wartime Jeep, which we' call Old Jeepo,. We were very
happy indeed'to see the two gentlemen. At that time an American boy who,
fell in love with Dominica and with me, came down to do some volunteer
work in thh newspaper which the proprietor was very glad of, being a man
of the olden times who believes people should work for nothing or next to
nothing.
One important thing was during that year of my life I really did some-
thing towards my career. It was at that time my friend Joy and I were

interviewed by thh Matron of d Childirens' Malnutrition Hospital which we
thought we would like to work in, of course with the strong influence of
Mum. We did two hours volunteer work there twice a week during our long
mid-summer hols, Therefore, that set a way for us to get nurse-training
work when a vacancy was at hand. It was also during that time that our
mother-cat, Mrs. Stripey, had four little kittens. And ohi how happy the
newly arrived. gentlemen were,~ntt hear that Old Mrs. Stripey had her kitt-
ens,' Before Dave did anything else, after he said his polite howdys, he
asked us to show him the kittens and chose the one he loved the best. Of
course Celeste got thl most credit because she found them deep down in the
cellar and she cared for them.
In the hurricane season of that year, a big storm missed Dominica. It
passed like a gale but did quite a lot of damage especially to our chief
crop, bananas, but instead of .really starting to work hard for Dominica's
replacements., Guadeloupe, a neighboring island, had to be looked after
first because our lucky island with all its mountains missed the worst of
it. Guadeloupe got the 'low. I can remember going to the Administrator's
house and seeing all the gift boxes being nailed up to send over to
Guadeloupe. This made me think how close we were, to the French islands.

Short Story THE FACTS AND LIFE by Parry Bellot
Up till now, he had thought the whole thing an awful nightmare. He just
could not believe it had really happened. Sitting in their drawing room
Frank's mind wandered over the happenings of the last forty-eight hours...
He had been reading "Much Ado About Nothing" (he always pictured him-
self as a great Shakespearian actor), when his brother Michael walked in.
They had .shared the house alone since their mother and father had died in
a car accident. But (he remembered with a grimace) they certainly did have
,more than their.' share of arguments which was sure to come out at the
trial. 2
"Hi, Frank," Michael greeted his slightly older brother. "Had a frus-'
trating day at the office. Damn good thing we don't have days like this
every day. How was yours?"
"Oh, nothing extra." Frank looked around for a box of matches.
"I thought you would have been having dinner by the time I came in.
But...I haven't seen Ruby. Isn't she preparing dinner tonight?"
"She didn't turn up. She phoned to say that some sister of hers was not
well. You know these old women. Anyway, I'm eating out tonight."
"With. who A&dy?"
"Who elde' Frank had answered curtly, perhaps too much so.
"And what happens to me? Am I supposed to starve tonight or does a dish
of something just drop from heaven. Why doesn't someone tell me what
happening in this house Is it "
"You can only have cheese and bread; for a change, at any rate. Anyway
I haven't seen you since you left for work this morning."
"Ever heard of the phone?"
"Even if I phoned you what difference would it make1"
"None none at all." There had been a bit of an uneasy silence. Then
the spark was kindled. "Where are you and that nut going?"
"Judith is not a nut."
"I don't care what she is' All I know is; that to go around with you,
she can't be too right upstairs...."
"Let me tell you something,.kid' Just because you didn't have a good
day at the office is no reason to bite my head off. And watch yourself
about Judy."
"Who the hell do you think she --."' The sound of Frank's palm on the
back of Michael's head had rung an echo through'the room. It was at this
point that thh latter had.made a motion that looked like he meant to grab
something and Frank spontaneously snatched the nearest instrument (an ash-
tray) and flung it at his brother. As Michae] turned his head, the ash-tray

connected hard on the side of his neck and it was all over. The brothers
had quarreled for the last time.
For a full five minutes, Frank had only watched his brother turn red to
white, then to blue and then back to white. (Even now he stared straight
across the room as he recalled it.)
Frank hadlmtaagedi to- phQnd-thb hospital and then the Police Station
still somewhat in a daze. Sometime after he had phoned and before the am-
bulance had arrived did it occur to him that his brother had had a very
delicate carotid artery, the result of a fall a couple of years, ago. But
e eyen jthen.... His mind went blank. Suddenly the whole house had become,
filled with people in white and others in black. Then those in white had
disappeared and Frank found he was surrounded by police officers.
1 Frank was taken back to the world of reality by a sound in the corridor
leading from the front door. Judith came into sight and her strides to-
wards Frank proved a notable argument to the saying that modern youth was.
lazy. She was nineteen. -
i"Darling...." Frank could only mention the one word as he hugged and
kissed the ;girl in his life. Her small shapely body in comparison to his
big overgown stature was like an alamander flower next ta; a bois flot leaf.
"Oh,' Frankl" It was awful at the store. Everyone kept staring at me
like a newly resurrected ghost. Anyone would believe that you had commit-
ted'murder Oh,.I'm sorry'. I didn't mean to say that. FrankZ,..." Judith
put her arms around him and began weeping.
'It's alright, darling....Oh, darn it. I can't seem to think,properly.
My mind keeps drifting off to yesterdays" Judith gazed at the man she loved
and suddenly noticed there were tears in his eyes..
'.What's going to happen?" Judith asked abruptly.
"I don't know, but I might have to face trial. Oh God'" The two clung
' together as one,
.When Frank had settled in for the night, after Judy had left (which was
well after ten), he found that he could not sleep, Again he thought of the
.previous day's happenings,,... .
After the police had pestered him for a full hour withwvhat they called,'
"routine qquestiohs" he was asked to accompany them to the Police Station.
There he had been put through' another gruelling questioning period that
ended with the inspector stating that he would be charged with either sec-
ond-degree murder or manslaughter. He continued, without a change in his
voice, that he would have to spend the night at the station unless he
could get someone to put up bail for him. The inspector showed him the
phone. In the space of a few minutes, Frank had succeeded in getting his
understanding boss .to put up the five thousand dollar bail for him,
He had then gone home and on reaching it he had remembered his brother's
body was at the hospital. He phoned only to be told that a post-mortem was
to be carried out and that .the bodywould not be available for burial un-
til after a few days.
He also.phoned Judy to tell her why he had not passed for her and she
promised to be round in the morning. The rest of that night was spent
smoking -and reading, He could not sleep. About seven o'clock the following
morning, his boss had phoned him to officially give him the day off.
At that point Frank fell asleep.
+ + + +++ + + + + +
For the next few days life was an agony for Frank, Not -only did he have
to see to the burial of his brother which was awful and most embarrassing
in ,the circumstances, but he also had to face the magistrates only to be
told after a half hour questioning that because of the gravity of the case'
it would have to be tried at high court. Suddenly it occurred to Frank that
"that night" was only the beginning of a series, of proceedings that were
gradually developing into a clim.ax. The lasting consequences in the result
Sof that climax only now began to make a concrete impression in his mind.

HERE AND THERE by John Spector
While I was away the long-awaited Tripartite Survey Report was publish-
ed and the Editor has handed me the Summary (which itself is 5,500 words
long with four pages of tables) to comment on, The Summary is written in
economists' language and needs translating, and I shall concentrate, on
what it says about Dominica.
Working on information about development plans supplied by governments,
the team considered details and estimates too-vague for them to examine in
much detail and therefore concentrated on "outlining a strategy for 'devel-
opment". Noting that the prospect for expanding the banana market is slim
and that industrial manufacture would require outside capital and imported
skills, it earmarks the development of the tourist industry as the most
._likely one to "generate economic development" i.e, raise our standard of
living,
*It warns that the foreign money (N. American dollars ot' Swedish kronen)
earned must not be spent all on luxury imports (whether for tourists' use,
or;television sets and expensive drinks and motorcars for Dominicans) be-
c cduse it will be needed for the purchase of essentials like roads, schQ.oj
sanitation and housing: also, of course, for financing of private enter-
prises making or growing goods either to replace imports or to earn fur-
ther foreign exchange, Above all, it emphasises that government must not
Only balance its budget, it must build-a surplus on current account. One
of the first and most obvious savings, says the Report, is in cutting down
imports of food and raising our own livestock, vegetables and other food.-
stuffs now imported and improving our fishing industry. The amount of food
crops raised on each acre of land under cultivation is very low, ineffic-
iantly cultivated and unnecessarily seasonal. Inferring that the Agricul-
tural Department has some wrong priorities, the economists say that the
Department should concentrate on efficient livestock farming and foodcrops
and that more direct action be taken over forestry in Dominica. So for
Dominica "priority expenditures are on agriculture, principally on citrus
.development and diversification, on roads for tourist and forestry devel-
opment and the completion of vital links in the road system, improvement to
Melville Hall Airport, a. samlill and tourist promotion."
Of a number of suggested projects for a five-year plan submitted to them
and slightly revised, they give first priority to a group of projects cost-
ing (including about $3M current expenditure) over 910.3, second priority
to a number of projects costing nearly 411M (recurrent under $1M) and other
lesser projects about $16.4M (recurrent ,2,2M).
The prime recommendations are for the formulating of a Regional Develop-
ment;':Policy, to include Commercial Development planning to integrate mar-
keting, fisheries, forestry and industrial .minerals, and agricultural de-
velopment and research all to be supported by regional technical services.
The Commission recommends a Regional Development Agency jointly sponsored
by the U.S.A., U.K. and Canada, to have a Development Bank and a Technical
and Commercial Services Division (which would supply operational personnel,
not just. advice --which has so ofton been ignored in the past).
