BLA, BLK, BLA by Androcles
This week I use the report in the "Dominica Chronicle" of the Labour Party's
public meeting in Roseau oh the night of July 14th, as the subject of my comments.
The "Chronicle" is not likely to misreport Labour Party proceedings. There are
some interesting points .
If the "Chronicle's figure of the amount of the United Nations grant for improv-
ing Hominica's water supply--$42),000 over a three-year period--is correctly
stated, the Minister who announced the grant might have refrained from publicly
mentioning it, since it is so ridiculously small in relation to the amount, millions
of dollars, required to'provide a potable water supply for the island. But I, at
leas recognizee in this one of the much-used tactics of the Labour Party: for
the benefit of the mass of unthinking persons, to show that the Party is aware of
the existence of a problem, and in mentioning it to lead the dull-witted to believe
that something is being done about it. These followers are thus lulled into
believing that the problem in hand is being tackled realistically. Thereafter, .
the Labour Party supporters forget all about it. I have seen this trick pateiszo
on the people time after time.
One Minister stated that funds would soon be forthcAming to start the Canefield
Housing Scheme4 Incidentally, it would be interesting if Government made a public
statement of the price it paid for he lands for this housing project showing
price per acre paid (a.) to Check Hall Estate and (b) to Canefield Estate for lands
lying side by side on these two estates. Could the Government satisfactorily
explain the vast disparity in prices paid?. Would the Labour Phrty be good enough
.to supply the information at its next public meeting in Roseau?
Yes, as regards the so-called Housing Project at Canefield, this, I am given to
understand, again does not cater for the poorest-- ;he main supporters of the
Iabour Party--in that if one does not have a few thousand dollars ( or the pros-
pect of owning such a sum) he is out. No provision is made for renting improved
housing. All that this "housing" project is concerned with is providing lots.for
sale to those who can afford to buy them, as in Goodwill. The poor man able to-
pay only one or two dollars house rent per week is still out. Vote for Labour!
In the course of that meeting, as reported, the Premier, defending the level
of his and the other. Ministers' salaries, stated: "Honest Labour Deserves Pay,"
It is true that the majority of those who attend these meetings are persons incapable
of thinking clearly and correctly. Still, this is no reason to take advantage of
them by making wrong and silly statements. WT--- the Premier says amounts to this:
you pay people salaries or wages not for how well and skillfully they can do a job,
but on the basis of whether thay are clean; of heart as seen by the Party. It is
therefore seearly acting on this reasoning that Labour chooses the type of represent-
atives of the people that it does. From the Party's point of view, such people
give honest labour and deserve the pay of members of the House of Assembly.
WtevcOr carried on a business or built a huise on the basis of paying wages, not
for work done, but for honesty of purpose ?
The Premier, in defending his personal decision to build a complex of adminis-
trative buildings rather than anything else for the welfare and progress of the
island, informed his few hearers that the huge building (costing $3,000,000) would
be equipped with elevators, (also surrounded by slums 1) and would house two
Magistrate Courts and a museum. I am sure that the rumour which went round that
this building is being put up by the Premier as his personal monument, is correct.
-I:have already written at length on this matter and put up twelve schemes which,
by any sane reckoning, would more greatly and permanently benefit the island rather
than this monument. I do not say any more except to add that I have every proof
that this question of alternative uses for three million dollars has sunk into the
consciousness of the people of Dominica.
Finally, we come to the more interesting point made at the meeting. Solemnly,
the Ministers avowed that a local rebellion, Anguilla-style, is at the planning
stage. Whoever heard such nonsense? I wonder whether the idea is a subconscious
commentary of what the.Labour Government deserves or is it the old trick of trying
to divert a'population's attention from its. woes and miseries by giving it some-
thing dramatic and far-fetched to think abqut? This happens in dictators.s.3 all

BRITAIN: Lord Shepherd, new Minister of
State for Commonwealth Relations, accom-
panied by his P.S. Mr. Gordon & Legal Ad-
viser de Winton, joined the. talks on St.
Kitts-Anguilla problems which were still
going on 'satisfactorily' in Barbados on
Friday. Lord Shepherdwill visit St.Kitts
and Anguilla; he has taken over from Mrs.
Judith Hart, now replacing Eiss Margaret
Herbison (who resigned as Minister for
Social Security because she was not in-
formed of changes in provisions by the
Cabinet.)These changes include raising of
children's allowances to 15/- for each
2nd child and 18/- for any child there-
after; higher cost of school meals, etc.

*HOME SEURETARY Roy Jenkins has now
ordered (Friday) that Black Power man
Stokely Carmichael is not to be allowed
to re-enter Britain, since his presence
there would not be in the interest of
citizens' wellbeing. Michael X (de
Freitas, a Trinidadian like Carmichael)
is now being investigated. In an inflam-
matory speech at Reading he tried to stir
up race hatred against the entire white
population of Britain, whom he described
as 'vicious, nasty people', boasting (say
official reports) that he had killed, and
would encourage others to do likewise.

'ANDROCLES (contd.fr.p.3) reactionary
elements are trying to overthrow the
"popular" government. It is a quite
stale trick. I suggest to the Ministers
that the whole thing is a figment of
their collective imagination, perhaps
induced by events in Anguilla. They know
as well as all of us that Dominicans are
not made of the same stuff as the people
of Anguilla. If they cannot put up a
decent opposition party to the Labour
Government, is it likely th-t they can be
planning rebellion? Balls !

Poets and Patois:
Does. it not seem a little strange that
our aspiring young poets of today couldn't
care less about trying to use a little
rhyme in their lines. I notice a complete
disregard for it. I know that times change
and we are becoming more modern, people
try to be original and not merely to copy
others and all that.- But I find a certain
beauty in lines: like:
Off Dominica's leeward coast in
The valiant Rodney fought a fight
that Frenchmen ever rue
and perhaps if I were a literature student,
I could name many other examples. Even the
calypsonians make a supreme effort to get
their lines to rhyme. Couldn't our poets
try too? I mean, it sounds so nice on the
ears ~AApity 1 But, as I said, times change
May I suggest that the authorities de-
clare patois the "Language of the Day" for
November 3rd every year. I am conscious;
of a "Ban the Patois" campaign among our
"intellectuals,. I would hate to see the
day when my grandson would say:- "Grand-

Y OU'RE going to hear a lot about Jimmy
Tranton in the very near future, if I'm
any judge of lighters. I've been training
and managing scrappers from the year dot, and
there's nobody who knows more about the fight
game than yours truly, even if I do say so my-
self. And I'm telling you that Jimmy has the
makings of a world beater. Mind you, if you
had come to me a couple of months ago and
asked my opinion as to his chances in that
respect 1 would have told you that he was a
very useful scrapper, but his possibilities of a
championship bout were very, very remote---so
remote, in fact, that they didn't exist.
The trouble with Jimmy was that he lacked
sparkle. He had absolutely no fire at all. He
boxed well; he looked good. Upstairs he was
built like a heavyweight with the kind of chest
and shoulders you see in a health magazine,
but he was as light on his feet as a ballet
dancer. When I first saw him get into the ring
for a try-out with Len Roper I said to myself,

smack at the light-heavyweight title-but none
of them looked half as good to me as Jimmy
did that day when he ducked under the ropes
and squared up to Len Roper, who is con-
sidered one of the best cruiser-weights in the

on the soft side?" I asked him afterwards.
"No, I don't think so," he said, looking at
his hands aa if seeing them for the first time.
"Then why didn't you lay into Len when
you had the chance?"
"I didn't see the point. After all, we were
only supposed to be sparring."
"Yes, that's true," I was compelled to admit.
He had his first professional fight at the
Stadium. lHe won it on a comfortable margin
of points, hut i can't say that the decision was
a popular one. The crowd accused him of back-
pedalling, among other things, and for once
they were right.
I took him to task immediately after the
"Arc you scared of getting hurt or some-
thing.?" I asked him.
He stared at me. "No, I don't think so," he
brought out slowly.
"Ba'ck-pcdalling is all'very well in its way,
but it'!i never get you anywhere. You've got to
take the iniiativc once in a while."
aaturda~vs J :u:y 29 Pt)&$
I might just as well have been talking to the
punch-bag. You could almost see it going in
one ear and coming out the other.
He had me worried in many other respects,
too. He used to come into the gym most days
arm in arm with his old man. Maybe I'm preju-
diced, but I couldn't help feeling it was a bit
sissyish on his part. It seemed so unnatural for
a fellow his age to trot around with his father
in that fashion. Not that the old boy was any
trouble. Jimmy would deposit him in a seat
somewhere at the back of the gym and he'd
just sit there smiling to himself over some secret
joke. I don't think he exchanged more than
two words with anybody during the many
hundreds of times he visited the gym. As soon
as he had finished training for ;th day, Jimmy
would link his arm through that of the old boy
and they'd stroll out looking more like a pair
of Continentals than father and son.
During the fifteen months that followed
Jimmy had twelve fights. He won all twelve of
'em-on points, needless to say. But in spite
of his wins he wasn't at all popular with the
crowd. They like a fellow to have a go in the
ring. Unless there's buckets of blood slopping
around they feel they're not getting their
money's worth. Personally, I haven't got much
time for crowds of any sort. I think you always
see humanity at its worst when it forms into
a mob. Unfortunately, in boxing, like so many
other sports, you've got to piay to the crowd if
you want to get to the top. Talent alone isn't
I kept drilling it into Jimmy that he would
have to prove to the critics that he had a punch;
that he could dish it out as well as take it. He'd
promise faithfully to do something about it the
next time he got into the ring, but he never did.
He just continued to give the same polished
but uninspired performance every time he
donned a pair of gloves.
And then his old man died. He didn't tell
me about it. 1 had to drag it out of him. He
came in the next morning looking like death
"Wlhat'; the matter? Arc you feeling off
colour?" 1 asked him.
"No, I'm all right," he said.
Anyhow, to cut a long story short, he finally
told me what had happened.
"You'd better go home," I told him. "You
won't feel like boxing today. I'll find a substi-
tute for tonight's fight."
"Oh, no you won't," he said obstinately. "I'm
lighting Tony Massatti tonight as arranged."
Tony Massatti was a really tough proposition
in every sense of the word, and I could see
Jimmy getting himself hurt real bad, going
into the ring feeling the way he did. I tried to
talk him out of it.
"You're in no shape to box," I argued.
"Oh, yes I am," he said stubbornly.
The fight fans had nicknamed Massatti "The
Bull". It fitted him to a "T". He was as broad
as an ox, and his style of fighting was like that
of an angry bull. The moment the bell rang for
the start of round one he lowered his head and
came charging baldly at Jimmy across the ring.
"You'll never catch up with him, Bull!"
yelled some wag in the crowd. "He's due to
start back-pedalling any minute now!"
Well, for once the crowd was wrong. Jimmy
stood his ground and, as Massatti came boring
in, he unleashed an upper-cut that was a thing
of beauty and a joy to behold. Massatti's teeth
rattled like castanets but, like I said before, he
was tough and he came straight back for more.
I'm not exaggerating when I say that Jimmy
had the crowd yelling their heads off as the
fight progressed. He was a changed man. He
didn't back-pedal once, and he fought like a
real champion. He had Massatti down for a
count of six in the third round and a count of
eight in the fifth. He made Massatti look like a
rank amateur. Like the sports writers said
afterwards, Jimmy gave him the kind of boxing
lesson he wouldn't forget in a hurry. I don't
usually get excited during a scrap-I've seen
too many fights to get carried away, so to speak
--but much to my surprise 1 found myself
yelling with the rest.
I don't think Massatti laid a single glove on
Jimmy throughout the entire bout. Jimmy posi-
tively made him look silly. He hit him exactly
where and when he pleased, so that by the time
the ninth round came up Massatti looked as if
he'd been through the mincing machine. But
he was still as game as they make 'em. Any-
how, Jimmy decided that the slaughter had
gone on long enough. As the bell went for the
tenth round he adopted Massatti's tactics and
came tearing across the ring. I honestly don't
think Massatti knew what hit him; he went
down and stayed down.
"What came over you?" I asked Jimmy after
"I didn't see any point in telling you before,"
he said, "but my father was blind. Tonight was
the first time he ever saw me fight!"

Dear Madam,Poverty,Alcohol & Godlessness
I have been following with interest the
views of readers as regards capital punish-
,ment. Please permit me here 'tL express a
few ideas on the subject.
Let us consider briefly three of the
Many factors that are responsible for crir-
1. Poverty A-large percentage of the
population of Dominica live under very
poor ,conditions. Parents need to work so
hard for a meagre living that they cannot
find time to train their children. oY.c'
can therefore hardly blame tiocc children
for their conduct. When these neglected
kids grow up it is very unlikely that they
will be ambitious, rather, a majority would
tpke the downward tend, and a few of the
worst will most certainly face murder
charges. How could we then demand their
heads? If the more well-to-do families
had shown some concern for their unfortuna
ate neighbours, someone may have been saved
from the gallows. Instead, it would
occur to me that the rich close their eyes
and ears to the poor and so we have a
"survival of the fittest." (2) ALCOHOL-
This lays a large part in Doinincan soci-
ety. A person who does not drink is re-
garded as "one of those." Yet when the
less temperate person, drinks, loses his:
reason, and commits a crime, the same
society that would regard him a fool if
he didn't drink, would now demand his neck-
is that fair? (3) GODLESSIESS When a
person decides-to turn from his evil ways,
obey God's law and demonstrate practical
Godliness he is laughed at, scoffed at,
and even persecuted. This same society
that is cruel towards a. consecrated man
has no right to be unsympathetic to the
one who devintes from God's law, dterin--
4tes, and eventually finds himself before
court on a murder charge. Away with cap-
'ital punishment I Society is largely res-
ponsible for crimes that are committed.
However, preventative measures can be
taken. Social centres can find means for
Assisting very poor families. Employment
exchanges can be set up to assist the.
unemployed in finding suitable employment,
She health visitor can be alerted to spot
the family going short of food and other
necessities because of alcoholism, and the
alcoholic concerned can be assisted before
it is too late.-
Let us not seek to send men to the
gallows, but rather do what we can to im-
prove conditions for them and decrease
the crime rate.

And root out evil from the core?
Why wreck schools of learning ando rk
Behave like brutes of the stone age
Boasting ye change the world's visage
And then rebuild that which you broke.
Make no use of Science as an appliance
Merely building to wreck, destroying to

No one can usurp GOD's power
In Heaven 'bove, on Ehrth, -in Hell.
If Man bears this in mind quite well
And serves his GOD at every hour
Justice will be no mockery,
Love of neighbour.will be no sham.
Eeace will abide 'tween wolf and lamb,
Ho -law will flirt with trickery;
Science will help with worthy things

Football, Div I Last Sunday
Another victory for Combermere vs Saints
After a slow start in which both sides
had an equal share of exchanges,Comber-
mere gradually dominated play. They went
into the lead when Toussaint, capitalizhg
on a defence blunder, banged one past
Saints' custodian G.Laraque. Sonn after
the interval Gregoire increased the lead
when he finished up a beautiful Toussaint
centre-cross. One more goal from Gregoire
and one from Curtis Henry gave Combermere
their 4 goals. Saints' consolation goal
came from V.Elwin. While the Combermere
players displayed some good passing and
ball-play, especially from Pat John,Emman-
uel and Toussaint, poor passing and under-
standing was what marked the Saints'play.
Spartans 2, Blackburns 1
The day before that, Spartans scored a
2-1 victory over Blackburns in a match
that was of only mediocre standard.Apart
from an occasional spark of brilliance
from Clem John and some sensible play from
Ronald Osbourne, the match had little to
cormend it. E.Jno.Baptiste scored both
goals for Spartans and E.Joseph for Black-
S Rovers 3 Blackburns 0
On Thursday Domfruit Rovers, looking
more like themselves now with H.Gage and
Tom Webb on the field scored 3 goals in
the second half to leave Blackburns with
no points from 2 matches. Lawrence made
good use of a Leblanc centre-cross to
put Rovers in the.lead. Leblanc himself
scored with a left-booter that beat Aird,
and John Simon made it three with a header
minutes before the end. H.Gage was out-
standing for the Rovers, and Goalkeeper
