CABBAGES% APND KINGS by Androcles
While. we must wish every success to tha Commonwealth Caribbean'team trying to
med-ate in the dispute about ascession between the Centra-. Governments of the State
of St. Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla and the last-naned territory, I cannot but note with
disapproval the composition of the team.
Made up of representatives of the officialdom of Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad and
Tobago and' Barbadom, the team contains- no representative of the sister Associate
States. One would have thought that a representative of the Associated States
would probably more easily establish a rapport with hc .parties to the Jicpute
since these States- are closer nethbours- to St.Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla, have the same
constitutional status and are bedevilled by basic problems rather similar' in
context.
I should hate to think that the independent Commonwealth Caribbean countries are
displaying a superiority feeling of being first-class states vis-a-vis second-rate
Associated States. -presumably incapable of making any wdrthile contribution to the
exercise. I UshtIll be even more disappointed if the requined organization of the
Associated States, ,ias in fact invited to nominate a representative and failed to do
o Fbr, someone, somewhere in the Assotiated States can surely be found, competent
and acceptable to play the role of mediator in this dispute.
The idea.of the mediating team is good, but I think its composition, because of
the exclusion of the closer neighbours of St.Kitts-Nevis-Anguilla, most unfortunate.

We have had a large number of road azeidents issuing in' fatalities and very
serious injuries in recent times. Almost every month there is some big road acci-
dent involving motor vehicles. And yet how often do we hear the sequel of driving
licences: being suspended? -Police investigations- are carried out and, surely in
some cases, one or other of the parties is- found to be at fault through negligence
or bad driving. How is it we hear practically nothing after this outside th@ very
occasional criminal prosecution?
In many counttio the suspension of a drivers licence for periods of years has:
--- been fpund to be the greatest deterrent to negligence in driving.
I should also like to suggest that the Police stop up on their vigilance as re-
gards- bad and dangerous driving by patrolling incognito, both as- to cars- and as to
uniform, gone of the roasd- and areas where such bad driving is particularly common.
Suggested are certain parts of the Trans-insular Road, the Fond Cole-Canefield
area.(particularly at nights) and Federation Drive. A haul of offenders cct'Z do
much to re-establish a measure of safety 'on our roads.
Whilst on the subject, one cannot help'noticing, as the Police certainly does,
the number of vehicles on the road at night which cannot be identified from the
rear ( aome from the front, too) on account of the licence plate not being illuminate
ed. "I6 this not an obvious escape for .ny driver effecting a get-away? Illuminat -
ion of plates should be enforced, particularly if the patrolling suggested above is-
to be carried out. It is'also necessary in the'detection of other crime. In any
case, the law requires it.
*. *

Two irtitutions working however in opposite directions seem very popular nowa-
days in the West Indies. They are (1) de-federation and other forms of political
disintegration and (2) organization of CGmmon hMrkets,' which is- one form of
economic integration. Wt have seen the first in the demise of the 1 -st Indies
Federation, the failures of the subsequent attempts to form smaller federations
and, now, the wish of secession by.Ahguilla from the unitary state of St. Kitts-
Nevis-Ahguilla. Lately We have been hearing about the foundation of a Common Market
by the West Indies Associated States, exb-uding Antigua, and with the addition of
Montserrat.
Incidentally, I first knew of this prospect from jIading the "Barbados Advocate".
I hope that I missed hearing or reading an official announcement locally made. If,
however, the first intimation the Dominigp public gets of this matter of such
importance to us, is through reading the newspaper of another and a non-partici-
pating state then we must take a dim view of the attitude of Government in pro-
viding information to the public, a point which has often been well taken by the

I am no economist, but I fal to
see how any significant economic ad-

my mind 'will stand to gain substantial-
-Jy is St. Kitt.a, which can then become
the sugar- supplier to some of the
other units, she being the only serious
sugar producer in the group. .All the
others produce much the same type of

tion of their food requirements. On
the'basis of such agricultural product-
ion, I do not see much scope for the
operation of a Common Market.

Possibly what the architects of the
Common Market have in mind is the
provision of a rather larger protect-
ed market for industrial products,
manufactured by "the Six." Since there
is currently little industrial product-
ion in the group, the idea may be to
provide or fill up an incentive to
such industrial production. However,
if it is to succeed in this object-
ive, the group will almost certainly
have to control the localisation of
industries and this will involve ac-
cepted decisions as to where such and
such an industry will be established,
to the exclusion of other areas of the
group.
Such an exceroise pre-supposes a
good deal of mutual understanding.,
givd-and-take, and self denial in
incipient nationalism attitudes and
qualities which have not been very
prominent in intra-territorial. ddal-
ings in the past.

Dear Madam EditorIs it Love or Hate?

Not very long ago I had this short

al. Can you do meafavour once more?

preachers or prophets roaming out streets-

ing what do they really preach, Love or
Hate?
When I Yfbar and read what happened in

d Those Crusaders
What I want to know is this, whose
healing is better?
The Dutch Crusade or Deliverance
Crusade?. You see, madam, sometime ago
the Dutch crusade of power came to this
Island and the agent of Deliverance
/ crusade told his followers not to go to
listen to the Dutch it seems because
he was afraid the Dutch would pull his
members and the Dutch did not present
themselves to him.
Now the Deliverance crusade says the
same thing "get healed from your sick-
ness." Is it wrong to attend one and
right to attend the other, when they say
the same thing?
It is time for religious men to be
straight-forward. Why do they not go to
the hospital and heal the sick there?
Yes, we know God can do plenty, but
we want men to do things right.

Dear E.tor, Government Receipts

Two weeks ago I received a letter
signed by Mr. lacAtoaey as controller
of Inland Revenue, asking me to pay
income tax due to the Government for the
year of assessment 1966.
When I went to the office this good
gentleman was absent. On inquiring from
the officer in charge why this letter was
sent, the reply was that I did not pay my
income ta:. On apprising this man of my


receipt dated 30th August 1966, his only
defence was that it was a genuine error.
Mr. Editor, I would like to ask if we
are paying people to sit down in office
and make genuine errors at the expense
of the public. Or are some officials
try ing to prove themselves so efficient
to Government that they are trying to
collect moEey by wrong means? If this
is so, thewong victim was chosen, for
it only went to show the inefficiency of
a certain office
The onus, I was told is on me to prove
that I paid. But I was not asked to do
so. I was asked to pay within 30 days,
and mark you, a penalty was attached. I
Is this courtesy on the part of those
who should know better?
What would have happened if my receipt
was burnt in a house fire? The people
would most probably say I did not pay.
Although I paid they were not prudent
enough to verify their records and satis-
fy themselves that I did: on the contrary
they took the easier way out.
Why is Government keeping receipt
duplicates? What is the use of having
ledgers if thef cannot present a replica
of Government business without resorting
to such impractical and inaccurate
methods at the convenience of the officers
This is by no means just work for
money received. This, Mr Editor, is
one of the many atrocoties and irregular-
ities occurring and recurring in Govern-
ment Departments, Those concerned
should take heed.

they sang them just a copy of the English

has talented youngsters in this type of
music, but if they wish to go on in their
art, they must be original. Even the
Gaylords themselves, after singing some
excellent numbers, then went into a ,
medley of songs, a replica of the Merry-
men style. The whole show was held to-
gether by the Jewels (the rythm section
of the Swinging Stars) who played expert-
ly throughout, but at times I felt that
they should have tuned down their ampli-
fiers and given the soloists more of a
chance. Much success to this group in -

Short Story MISSION FOR AGENT T11 by Rommel Lawrence

Most people prefer to solve a problem by tackling it directly but my training
ae a-Secret Service Agent taught me to get involved as a part of the problem it-
self. This was exactly what I did when the U.S. Secret Service Agencj sent me to
the little Pacifia: Island of Taongi to capture a Russian spy. It eas suspected
that the Soviet spy occasionally left Taongi for the island of Hawaii where he
got his briefing from the Soviet Consulate.
I left Loss Angeles, Galifornia, as-Secret Service T11. ,My mission: to capture
a Soviet spy-- docd or live. The Trans-Pacific jet was well on its way to
Hbnolulu Airport.
It was 10.00 when it touched down at the said airport that cool Tuesday morn-
ing. There, waiting, was the police car, the one which was to take me to a little
harbour where a submarine lay in wait. Plans were working out on schedule and
when I arrived at the harbour, I found the:sub already gurgling.
The swift subh sliced it way 400 fathoms beneathI the Pacific waters on its way
to Taongi, About sidx hours later, it slowed to a cushioning halt and I felt it
rising from the depths. When the hatch was opened'I saw the small police launch
heading towards the sub. As the lau-ch coasted by, I bade the sub folk good-bye.
and boarded it. With four miles before reaching the shore, I spoke to the F.B.I.
S" chief and he gave me some briefings as to my rounds at Taongi. We arrived along-
side the wooden Taongian jetty and from thence I was taken to a small hotel.
I immediately went to bed On arrival at.the hotel.
When I awoke mext morning I searched -a secret drawer in the-floor of my room
for instruction cards. But as I glanced over the cards, one read: "The Soviet
spy, it has been suspected, frequents this hotel. K6ep a look-out. It is also
believed that the Russian uses a girl as a cover-spy. She may be dangerous.
Watch your moves," I placed the cards back into the drawer and prepared for
breakfast.
Two days passed and I could find no clue. But on the night of the third day,
when I entered the hotel lounge, I found myself sitting next to one of the
S prettiest girls I had yet set my eyes upon. The thirty-odd people in the room
looked American to me. The girl was attractive.
S My business was to remain indifferent; my job, to capture a spy. But the girl^*s
graceful shape and speechless plea was overwhelmingly seductive. I moved closer
to her and with the most that charm has'to offer, she whispered: "But why did you
S take so long? Please tell me about you, handsome."
The thought that the spy used a girl as.a 'shadow' bothered me. If he did use
a shadow, it could not have been this pretty 'brunette. "Oh," I replied, after a
small pause, "I was sent here on business."
"Secret Police, eh?" She inquired further, but I kept my mind on the ball.
"No," I said. I am a salesman and I've been sent to these parts to make a
survey of the business around here."
I had lied. And as if to acknowledge the fact, she gave a wry smile. She did
S not let up, but was soon nestling my neck. Her palms were soft and warm; her eyes
S enticingly so. I could not have refused when she asked that we take a walk
S through the flower garden.
The night was cool; the air, invigorating as I took her into my arms. Her
eyes in mute appeal, roused my passions-. Her warmth was welcoming. But as I bbnt
4[ over to kiss her, something cold touched my right ear. Still skeptical about the
coolness of the touch and in dire-want of a kiss, I ignored the sensation. This-
i time as- my lips were nearing hers, the impact of a swinging butt against my head
told me the sory. I pitched backwards in a flower-crushing dive. There, standing
over me was a burly six-footer. The man did not speak to me, but when he did, it
was- in Russian. The girl understood, and acted on his commands. It was only now
as.-I lay there slightly dazed by the blow, did I realize my error -- something for
which I had but myself to blame. I had been cautioned; yet, for the beauty and
admiration of a girl, I, a special Secret Service agent, T11 to be certain, was
S trapped by a Russian spy,
The Russian spoke hurriedly, commandingly to the girl. "Get up fast," she
ordered me. I was inching to my feet, when the Russian sent a flying kick to my

ribs. I got up a littlI quicker this time and was forced towards a black car
twenty yards away. Tpe girl took the wheel, while the Russian kept me company
at gun-point in the back seat.
We reached a small log cabin ten minutes later. The girl searched my pockets
and found my identification cards and secret camera. ShA grinned broadly. Ar.d as
though understanding the situation; the Russian bellote.d-.- Nxt moment he was forcing
me to drink'a shot of doped liquid. He left the room, locked'the door, and made
for the car. They both took off with a scream of tyre rubber.
My senses were being shattered. But I remembered the V pills. I had vonitting
pills-in my secret collar pocket. I swallowed them; then went blank.
The drug was sure in effect.
Fifteen minutes later, I found myself sticky with vonit. I puked and coughed
out the drug which would have otherwise put me out cold. I got'up and faced a win-
dow, which gave way easily. Immediately made for the main road.
Two minutes passed and I found a taxi going towards 'THotel de Flora". I bopped
in and three minutes later I arrived there. I told the chauffeur that I would pay
him later. He cursed and kicked but I wag soon out of sight.
The lights in the lounge were still on. I felt almost c-ertain that the Russian
and the girl were there. The Black car confirmed my belief. I slipped up to my
room, changed my shirt and put on my detective coat. As I left the room with a gun
well-pocketed, I slid on my tinted glasses.
The lounge was warm with cigarette fumes. The Russian was there and so was the
girl. As I was ordering a drink at he far side of the room, the Russian turned in
my direction. Although I was not looking at him directly, my trained eyes could
tell ne so. The spy turned towards the girl and whispered something in her ear.
Next moment, they were leaving @he hotel. I followed in pursuit after they turned
left at the door.
They were hurrying across the garden, when the girl tripped, spinning in my dir-
ection as she did do. As she met the ground with a thud, she called to the Russian
to take action. I understood Russian too well myself, and before the burly spy-*
could get his hands into his pockets, my gun was on him.
"Get up, you filthy woman, I barked. I marched them both into the hotel, where
I a-led a messenger to dial 777 -- F.B.I. headquarters. In less than a minute a
sirened car screeched to a halt, I harassed the spy and cover-spy into the car.
I received my thirteenth medal for successful missions. And as the award was
being presented to mw, the Secret Service chief asked: "Well, what about another
mission Tll?"'
"Yessir," I replied, "but not until I have learned how to keep out of a
problem."

Invisible Masters, will you tell me
were I belong?
I understand
That a woman
Gave birth to me
On a tiny Island
Called Montserrat.
1o I belong
To that bit of land?
No, I choose
Not to believe it
When the second world war
Was at it's height
I, as a baby, travelled
By a sailing boat
-To the native Land
of my mother.
There I grew up
To be a man.
Does it- t.e. fellow
That I belong
To that enchanting isle
To which I am attached
By an emotional cord?
Way back in Dominica
My mysterious mind
Dreamt of the oriental scene.
And like a magnet
The East drew me.
Can it be that
'In a previous- life
My place of birth
Was there I find myself
Right now?
If this be so, do I
Then belong to the East? Tell me .

But man, I was'-most disappointed the
crowd was dull though I did see a bit of
the Navy having a ball, but the crafts
were few. I took myself off to where
there was a wonderful small of food, got
a big, big, big plate of Chinee, Indian,

plate; those kind ladies who-pipepared it
all needed a bunch of flowers each for all
that work. I hope Father gives those folkn

those, but no one told me I was anything
so special. I drove out to Clarke Hall,
winding down a muddy path, got my car
bashed about a bit, but I reached to findc
the Layou River clear and flowing sweetly.
There were all sorts of people gathered
together, the barbecue was getting hot,
on the tables were bottles and bottles of
punch, man, I've never seen so many shades
of punch,; there was barbadine punch,
grenadine pun ch, grapefruit punch, pine-
apple punch, and many strengths of fine
ordinary punch. I set out to try them all
pne by one, cooling off every few minutes
with a jump into the river. Then the food
came up, we had chicken cooked on the
barbecue, salads, macaroni, chines foods.

SOME QUESTIONS:
1) Should we really contin-u to hang people in Dominica in the latter part of
the 20th century?
2) Who is to blame? Is it the person to go on the gallows, or Society in general?
3) Are the people who advocate hanging--that is, the people who say that "A" must
be hanged ii he kills "B", prepared to witness this monstrous and ghastly exer -

4) ~~ capital Punishment abolished in the most civilized parts of the world? Is
it abolished in the United Kingdom?
CC'IO LiT: Capital Punishment is totally abolished i- the United Kingdom since
November 1965 for a period of 5 years as an experiment. Why should
not the State of Dominica follow, anyway?
5) Is it true i hat the offence for which the-present accused is to go "home" was
committed during the same month, March 1966,. in which Fogarty A-nat6i .was hanged
for"the murder of a.Policeman in Portsmouth? Anatol was hanged on 1.3.66.
70. And if this is true, has it been found that the hanging of anyone has in any
way.prevente .the murder of anyone else?
7) Wabs hot a certain person at Portsmouth charged with the murder of a Police
Inspector, whilst the case of the present person to be hanged was before the
Appeal Court?
8) Is there any evidence that there has been a change in the attitude of the in-
habitants of Dorinica because some people have gone to the gallows?
9)' If there has been no change in the way our people are thinking, who is response"
ible to bring about the change?
Comment: Hanging, like any other social ill, is altogether bad. Let us- look at it
seriously. 1Tho is going to do the hanging? ,What effect will it'have
upon the iunediate.persons concerned the Priest, The Registrar, the
relatives of the hanged, and the sympathetic members of the public?
Someone may very well say that so-and-so has killedsomeone in cold blood,
'.and he ought to be killed in return.
I should like to say that if that someone had ever witnessed the hanging
of a citizen in cold blood, that someone would immediately change-his or
her mind. Criminal statistics have never proved that because you hang
people, the fear of hanging has:-abolished murder. In the years 190O01948.;
10$,2 persons were sentenced to death for various offences in the U.K. In
1965 it was found necessary to change the law of the U.K. and abolish
the death penalty.
Actually, in the year 1966, (August) three Policemen were shot in London
and despite repeated attempts to bring back hanging, the Home Secretary
felt that he could not do so.
10) Have we prepared the people of the State of Dominica to understand that LAW
and ORDER must be upheld at all cost.
Whose responsibility is it to do so, and by what means Must we continue
hanging indefinitely,or at what stage must we stop this ghastly, savage
ex ercise?

READERS VIEWS (contd.)
Madam, Youth Tackles Androgles

My views have occasionally been in
accordance with those of the implacable
Androcles, but I find fault with his
writing of July 1st 1967.
He maintains that in the event of
an insurrection, the local defence force
with the help of the populace, if it sup-
ports the government, would be sufficient
to quell the rising. He should remember
that a few fanatics (we have quite a few
in this island) are enough to stir up
sufficient trouble which a defence force
and the remaining level-minded people
would not be able to calm. Therefore it
is imperative that we have a Regional
Defence Force.
On the issue of opposition, he
should realise that it is through no
fault of the-government, that there is no
opposition;no their is it the public's
fault. They are simply supporting, whole-
heartedly, a government which had the
ability in its last term of office to
place the country in an auspicious posit-
ion. Would Androcles condemn the public
for that? Is it such a "senseless action"
to back the party which had done good for
you? Would it be fair if I decide to call
his voting against the government "sense-
less?" Is he of such an intellectual
standard that he can freely imply that thc
public is stupid and is unable to elect a
proper government? (Proper is defined in
Androcles' own terms.
Even an impartial person would
think it irrational to continually blame
the government for this situation (or if
he likes, predicament). If the opposition
party was in power, would it still be a
semblance of democracy" to elect an addi-
tional opposition pomber in the state of
constitutional dictatorship?

Opposition to the Govern-

Anglnilla has always bten
independent in politics, and
has .evc'e had anything to
do with the Labour Govern-
ment in St. Kilts.
At the elections last July
I was returned as PAM can-
didate. Not that the people
had any real sympathy with
PAM, but in order to secure
a stronger opposition to the
Labour _Government in the
Assembly.
There is an almost. fanati-
cal hatred of the Premier, Mr.
Bradshaw, apparently stem-
ming from a remark he made
in Anguilla at the heat of ihe
elections some ten years ago,
for which he has never been
forgiven, and to which is
attributed m i c h of the
neglect of Aiguilla in the last
few years.
