When the news broke that Mrs. Jackie Kennedy had flown into Dominica in
a private plane for a lightning visit last Wednesday morning, everybody
in the State was pleased -- never mind their personal views on Viet Nam,
President Johnson, the mighty dollar and all that. Jackie had .her twob
children John, and Qaroline (pictured right above) with her. The party
drove by car to the Carib Reserve and Concord, unmet by Premier, Govern-
or or officials (who had not been alerted.). Mrs. Kennedy was much taken
by our green island, and hopes to pay Dominica another visit soon. The
Kennedys swam in our waters, refrshed themselves with good juicy coco-
nuts, enjoyed our sylvan scenes, and flew off again to return some day.
We congratulate HE.the Governora, Sir Louis Cools-Lartigue, on his
Knighthood, and Lady Cools-Lartigue with him.Also the A.G. on his O.B,.E.

NEW YEAR I3SINGS by Androcles

I do not think that sufficient has been made locally of the superb per-
formance of one of our young compatriots, Gerald Grell, in the recent final
.B.,, B.S. examination of the University of the West Indies. Dr. Grell topped
the list with the further remarkable performance of gaining distinction in
both Surgery and Miedicine, plus one other subject. This is a most creditable
and impressive achievement by any standard, anywhere, and such an occurrence
must not be glossed over in our community in which shoddiness and mediocrity
sit enthroned attended by their deacons and sub-deacons. It is such perform-
ances as Dr. Grell's, I hope, which will capture the i!.-i's.tion of our young
people and inspire them to rise above the nonsense, written and spoken, so
common in the life of Dominica at this time. Heartiest congratulations, there-
fore, to Dr. Grell and to his mother and other relatives:

I hope that I do not live to'see the day, envisaged in the "Dominica
Chronicle" of 30th December last, when the various fruit of Dominica will be
Shipped to Martinique for canning. To me, this will be the ultimate confirm-
ation of the breakdown in community morale and pride. For it will highlight
the stark deficiendes of the island if we must then become purveyors of raw
material to a neighbouring foreign island when we can so easily ourselves do
the same canning. It is to me inconceivable that our Government would allow
this reflection upon the national character, seeing that a'cannery is so ob-
viously the first step in a programme of industrialisation.' When we consider
that at least two-thirds of the island's not so small orange crop falls to
waste from the trees; that the grapefruit crop will likely double within two
years; that we have so many adds and ends of various fruit (guava, soursop etc.)
S plus those so easily produced like Passion Fruit; that there is a market in
Enila:. for canned West Indian foods, e.g. cooked or roasted breadfruit, native
soupy etc., it is obvious that favourable scope exists in Dominica for the
establishment of a cannery.
The more far-seeing persons have already discussed the matter and efforts
have been made, so far without success, to secure financial partnership in
the venture from abroad. In other words, the cost of establishment of a cannery
is beyond local available resources (in the sense of able and willing) but it
is known that a fair portion of the required funds could be raised locally.
It i0 here that there would have been fine scope for a joint effort by private
enterprise and Government if the latter had had a more realistic approach to
the problems of the local economy and invested in the project only one-quarter
of the funds it is converting into the building of offices.
However, it seems to me that the forthcoming Regional Development Bank
should be a source for the provision of the additional funds required by Dom-
inica for the establishment of a cannery. Would my critics think it unreaso'n-
able :f I call upon (the "humble petition" stuff, so favoured by a section of
the local press, is foreign to my make-up) the Government to take steps to get
this project in to the authorities of the Development Bank as soon as business

A friend, well-versed in the indicators of West Indian political life,
has recently drawn to my attention what I consider a very eye-opening trend.
He points out that the first flush of uncritical satisfaction with the political
leadership of quite noisy, class-orientated but utterly incompetent persons is
going off and that there is a reappraisal taking place. The give-the-son-of-'
the-village-a-Chance attitude is giving place, through sheer disillusionment,
to the more rational philosophy that problems are more likely to be better
analysed and solutions to them more likely to be forthcoming from knowledge-
able persons. He points out that the change has already taken place in Trini-
dad, St. Vincent, St. Lucia and that the strong PAH opposition party in St.
Kitts is just that. (Continued on pafe___4.)

A Hindi Short Story T H E T H I E F by Vishnu Prabhakar

H was on his way back from his office when his friend met him and complimented
him profusely for his story published in the monthly 1I'Tav Bharatt. "What a grip
you have over day-to-day matters,'"
Nishikant felt exhilarated. But his exhilaration was only shortlived. As he
reached home, winding his way up the stairs, he sensed commotion and voices charged
with excitement and anger,' is mood changed into that of.irritation, "These
hellish ones I he mumbled, "As if this is a fish market i ... They-are always at
the top of their voices..... This is so when they are all educated I "
What he saw when entering his house completely took him aback. His little
daughter was surrounded by people who were probing into something, all at a time.
The girl was standing still, motionless, like a statue. Her eyes were moist, betray-
ing fright.
"What is this all about?" he hurled a question, too severely. The question had
a.disintegrating effect on that crowd. It was his mother, however, who met him
first. "She has stolen something," she said haltingly.
"Whose.-was it?"
1fW don't mean that, son. -Yesterday, I got a rupee cashed. Milk for four annas,

"Yes, I am coming to it. Three annas were left with me as balance. The same

.....Oh, you have misplaced it, they would have said. But it was bahu, the daughter-
in-law, you wife, amd she, right in my presence..."
Nishikant could not contain himself. "You always tell tales, mother", he said in
Sexasparation. "After all, what do you mean? How much did she steal?"
S"One anna,"
"Did you see her stealing?"
"I'Ta it was not me. It was Sarita."
"Where is Sarita?"
Sarita was there, of course. She, too, stood frightened. She inched forward
when her name was mentioned. Nishikant softened his voicw as far as he could.
"Yes Sarita, did you see her?" he asked.
Sarita only a'nod of her head, frightened as she was. His daughter now
slowly moved her eyes, first towards mother and then towards him, her father. 'But
this liod was enough for Nishikant to make his eyes go bloodshot instan~acously, and
anger grew deeper on his face. He gav pul:'. at the..child's hand so strongly that-
she cried in pain. Now his mother was on the childts side. "No son, this wouldn't

his voice was sharp and piercing.
No motion,
"Speak up, I say."
The child stood motionless, as before.
'"You won't speak up? I'll kill you, eh."
But the child stood speechless.
ITishikant gave her a strong shake-up and then slapped her in the face. The child
gave an agonising cry. Blood seemed to be bozing out on hot cheek. Her breath
remained stuck for a few seconds. Then she cried profuseolYI;"o much so that even
sishikant felt moved. Outwardly, he maintained his strnneoss.
"!To crying," he said warningly.
But the child kept crying. Hishikant made a show of giving her another slap.

The.child felt. cowed, but could not suppress her soba.
"ITo, no sign of it," he yelled again.
The child made another effort.
"Did you steal?"
The child could not make any reply. Only her hand cowered the side of her face
where she was struck. She was sobbing as before and her eyes fetill betrayed fear.
isz'hi.,:nt was getting severer. "Don't you hear me?...Look towards me."
The child was still feeling cowed. She looked up. Their eyes met. As if
there was a flash of-lightning." As if there were tremors of earthquake. Hishikant
was shaken up. Uhat's this? he asked to himself. He tried again, still again.
Yes, it was the same red face, the same tearful, frightened eyes, the same vacant.
look, the same trembling body... As if somebody gave him a hamn--ier-blow on his head.'
He only gazed. It was his own face before him. He looked like her, just like her,
twenty-five years ago. One day, he was also trembling the same way as his daughter'
was doing now4 His eyes were also full of tears and his face glowing red. He too,
had stolen. Yes, he too had done a thieving, Iishikant mumbled to himself. The
thought made his hand'go down drooping. He had a full look at his daughter. Like
fast gal'-oping horses, the train of his recollections rushed past throu-:ht events
buried deep in his memory. He was then only six years old. He had stolen money
from his grandmother's little box and purchased a good many things to his hearts
content; new books, slate, pen, pencil, playing cards, whistle and sweetmeats. He
was not alone in this venture. Many of his class-fellows had been with him. He .gav'
a start. Yes, his school-teacher too, had had his share in it. As a matter of fact,
the thieving was done only to appease his teacher, though of course he could still
keep ack four rupees for himself even after purchasing a small child's gift for him"'W
But he could not hide his act. When the fact was found out, he was given a thrashing'
His mother had whimpered in excitement; "You have sullied the milk of my breast.
I feel like wringing your neck."
"You have brought dishonour to the entire family," his father raised a blow,
bantering his eyes and grinding his teeth, "if you could do this at this age..."
But his uncle beat him blue. "You have thieved..I.why?...7Tould you do it again?
...And mind you, don't you count on anyone...I'll break-your bones..."
An old neighbour woman had intervened, with sarcas--'f course; "Why are you
out'to butcher him? His father, too, had done auc.;a .L heving 1 And his uncle?
Yes, he too, had a flash of lightning when. he recalled the day when he was given the
beating for a similar act. IT the evening,his uncle had appeared and said laughing-
"'Then I was young I pilfered two paise from the grocers shop i "
Then his mother had joined. "You talk of two paise, you would have proverbially
dug out many wells'?"
ITishikant jerked his neck. Dark lines were descending on his face. "I father
thieved, my uncle thieved, I thieved and my daughter today too,-has thieved. My
father got a beating,. I got beating and my ,daughter today-, too got it..."
Nishikant set his daughter free. He now remembered-a piece which he had read .7f
"A. father went to a saryasin with his newly-born'son and placed him reverently
at his feet. "Bless my son," he prayed, "that he grows into a good man."
The.samyasin smiled. "Be yourself a good man," he said, "and your son would
follow you,"
Nishikant was filled with self-pity. "If my daughter has done thieving, the fault
is mine. I should be punished for it and not she,"
His anger had disappeared now. In its place, there were love and affection, love
without a twin!;e of malice, love full of forgiveness. He drew his daughter
close to him. He was greatly moved. He took out his purse and emptied it on the
bed nearby, "Tell me how much do you want."
The child looked towards her father. Her eyes were full of disbelief. She
looked at him constantly. "Yes, yes. my little darling," Ilishikant ureged her with
his welling affection. (contd.on page 11).

Lady Gaitskell of the United Nations
smas Britain regards IHman Rights Year
(1968), as a landmark in the history of
the United Nations.
Britain has four aims for her own cele-
bration this year of International Human
Rights: Education and publicity about
the United Nati6ns universal declaration
of human rights; Elimination of all forms
of racial discrimination; Elimination of
all forms of discrimination against.-women2
Assistance to the people of Britain's re-
maining Dependent Territories to understand
fully their human rights.
Perhaps the international conference
associated with the year, to be held at
Teheran in April and May, would "shed a
new light on all the dark corners of the
world where human beings are denied their
human rights," said Lady Gaitskell. What
was not wanted was a sterile repetition of
the more frustrated debates within the
United Nations.

The E ew Year, as .:ell as bringing a knighthood for Dorminica's
Governor and a s-prinkling of honours for sportsmen, industrialists
and other worthy persons, brought the Queen's announncemnt that the
Poet Laureate of Engl-cand had been chosen. He will receive a pittance
evcry year unm a time-honoured gift of wine: and at last an end has
come to all the jokes and predictions about the possible office-holder.
It is not the natural contender -- Join Betjicman. Indeed., although
the honour brings (nowadays) more ridicule than prestige, because of
the drcadfu.l poetry which has s rung from the pens of Poets Laureate
both before and after Alfred Lorp Toninyoonn, Qeen iliszabeC-h iI's
nomination brought surprising pleasure to mafny intellectuals, P 'he man
in question is Cecil Day Lewis, lately .Regis Professor of Poetry at
Oxford University. We will let readers sam:.le a fexz of his lines, by
favour of the Hogarth Pross, and judge oi his quality for themselves,
ie most be frank anw.6 say w;e don't know horw Good the poetry he is
writing nowadays is, but he is the eldest of the BIG iFUR of avant
garde literature of the 1930s, his friends being WvIli. iaden, Louis
l.iacieice (now dead) and Steiphen Spender, all of whom are represented
in every reputable anthology. imagine, then, that he is a patriot --
You that love England, who have an ear for her music,
The slow. movement of. clouds in benediction,
Clear arias of light thrilling over her uplands,
Over the chords of su::a.rer sustained peacefully;
Ceaseless the leaves' counterpoint in a west wind lively,
Blossom and river rippling loveliest allegro.
And the storms of ,Jood strings brass at year's finale:
Listen. Can you not hear the entrance of a new theme?

You above all dwho have come to ti'e far end, victims
Of a run-down machine, :who can bear it no longer;
Whether in easy chairs chafing at impotence
Or against ranger, bullies and spies preserving
The nerve for action, the sparo of indignation -
ieed fight in the dark no more, you Imnow your enemies.
You shall be leaders when zero hour is signalled,
Wielders of power and welders of a new world.

Day Lewis is a modern poet, and unlikely to turn into a sychophantic
old fossil ,even as P.L. lie likes expressions such as 'Today let
director forget the deficit ochoolmastcr his handicap, hostess her
false face ',and continually reminds us of two of his early passions ,
shared with his poet friends one is music. I will not tell you
.what the other is yet, for the 3BTAR is turning this news item about
the P.L. into a little competition. 'Petty officer be rapt in the
Seventh Syu.hony' writes Day Leis whose beautiful and honest poem
to his wife "DO iNOT EXPECT AGAIIi A PHOENIX HOUR' should rank high
along 20th century love poems. As also his poem celebrating the
birth of a son 'Come out in the sun, for a man is born to-day!'
i'or answer these questions: dhat in earlier daycs was Day Lewis' major
preoccupation? And ,whom did. he refer to in these words from 'It is
becoming now to declare rr Al,:legian-ce' ?: "Last the tow-haired poet,
never done ':- With cutting anCd planing some ne-w gnomic prop To jack
his all too stable universe u *,.....Siiagle mind copes with split
intelligence,* Breeding a piebald strain of truth and nonsense," ?
