POINTS TO PONDER by Androcles:
1- IC was saddened and disappointed that on the day of the funeral of the late.
I Dr'. I'rtin Luther King so few of the flagstaffs in Rosocu cTdoonstrated respect,
hohiour and' sympathy in flying a flag at half-nast. I ropoet that I was most
disappointed; Government House flew its flag at half-nst; 'the Treasury Building
also did; so, too, the Belgian Consul. While I may have. issued one or two, ny
general. statement stands-. I am quite sure of this despite information to the.
-co.ntrary given by our newspapers.
Al ia. people we must learn to af. maturely. Are flagpoles erected only so that-
fZags may bo hoisted at half-nast when ..some foreign potentate or marginal nomnber
of, the Royal Family dies or when our little Ministers" indicate their wish that
citizens honour some occasion? Surely, if there is one person of our generation
and of'the. race. of the majority of our citizens who deserved to be so honoured it
was. Dr. Martin Luther KingSand I xpectcd to see all the flagpoles of Roseau flying
Sflags -at half-mast on Tucs.day, 9th. April, the day of the funeral. Particularly--
was it' appropriate to do so in view of the manner in which Dr. King met his death
rnr-dcr most foul. I cannot reconcile the attainment of Statohood with its attend-
ant bla-bla and such :imiaturity in international affairs as displayed by our
people on that occasion,.. I. assure readers that I was not impressed that day.*
Dr. Martin Luther King devoted the whole of his comparctivoly short life to
praaching reconciliation between races based on non-violence and while extremists:
did' not approve his attitude to the problem, there can bn no doubt that his was- the
Christian approach.
This leads no to shako my head in amazonent and disrolief at the antics and.
tamority of one of our island newspapers on this subject of violence. The news-
paper in question is the one in which we should Icast have expected to find vio-
lance crtolled as a solution to the social question and attonpts made to justify it
by thaologicol. argument. What a sorry pass Christianity has cone to when in a
supps-edly Christian journal, murder, rapine,and violence are offered as one method
of resolving the vexed questions of distribution and of social justice; One
S"f.oaturc letter writer" even had the audacity to quote, out of context, the Fathxrs
of the Church and recent papal oncyclibals in support of the methods of violonc.,
refraninng, however, from quoting the Master's clear--adjudication in the attecr',
so appropriate at this particular season of the year: "Put up again thy sword into
its placo; for all'that talke the sword shall .perish with the sword". The distin-
.guishod theologian, Hans Kung, in his very recent book "IThe Church" has this to
say and which nay well be talcn as a guide-line by so-called.Christian journals:
"The Church is .heado-d in the right direction rhen',. whatever the ago in
which it lives, Lthe Gospol of Jesus Christ is its criterion, the Gospel
which Christ proclaimed and to which the Church of the Apostles wit-
nessed." *
In the "Barbados Advocate"' of Sunday, 7th.. April, the Priac Minister of that
country is quoted as reprovini the St.Lucia Chamiber of Connorco for its having' said,
as I ,too, have always said, that CARIFTA would not benefit "the Six" which wouldI
then become a. dumpingg ground" for the industrial-products of the more developedd
British Caribbean territories.
Mr. Errol Barrow, ocononist as he is, has taken refuge behind the technical
connotation of the tern "dumping", which is the selling pf produce in a market at
loss than the cost of production, the wherewithal enabling this to be done being
derived fromnanother (often, protected) market in which mnro-than-adequato prices
havea-boeen obtained for the greater part of the output. 'In this technical sense,
Mr. Bhrrowts argument that "dumping" is often beneficial to a country, particularly
a' non-industrial one, nay be Oorroct. But St.Lucia Chanber used the phrase, dump-
ing ground" in a. looser sons, noaning that "the Six", if and when they become
ommbers of CARIFTA., will provide sure and protected narkots for the comparatively-
inefficient production of the more industrialized territirios. The implication is,
that citizcn- of "lho Six"- will have to purchase industrial goods originating from
"the Four" ai prices, rather Iighoer that they could have got--thon from a more
afficieni ; producing country, for example, Japan. Q(ounld.y. Ij )

SJorty Story "THE MOPPERS' CURT (Part II) by Julion Guiste

THI STOIR SO FAR: At an impromptu Holiday fete held at Bino's s home, four
moppers "mopped"' their way in. Here is the conclusion of the story:-

' dbre. mnn ( how things?t greeted Coz giving him an offusive handshake,
proceeding to greet the others in the same way, making thonm fool the 'most welcomeu
of viLitoras meanwhile managing through all this to keep his position, blocking
the. kitchens entrance.
The girls, howevcV spotted Bingo and his mother in the kitchen and shouted,
'e.ll0 i, Bingo, we sorry wio ,o late, nan. They didn't want us to leave the party
up: those road, man.' Bingo startEod to say soothing, but a glance front Coz restored
his silence..
'aLl,-i what you have here non, Coz? You leaving us thirsty then?' asked the,
fourth *moppor" attel.;tijH unsuccessfully'to wedge himself past Coz into the
kitcho.n. :Rum like bush, nan MaIh Hilson, pass me the drinlks let me serve the
gentlemen please.t Coz looked his courteaus- est at. that moment,
iThts-'.s the correct procedure, lady and gcntlomeno! chimed' in a voice, from
behhindT, Wo do things methodically hero. No unauthorized person is allowed ib
the cul.in-ary section of'this doricile
Tho. new voice was Fitterts. The "piece" having -ended, -ho had cone over to see
what was going on, and at the saae time to got a "rofill."
Sonl:body put "The Party" by-the Swinging Stars on the turntable and the "aoppori?".
eoach- .quipped with a "glass", headed back to the drawing-roon to celebrate theit
asumned. victory.
At the kitchen door, Coz said to Fitter and Bingo,- 'Thlt one drink will bo
enough for those buggers. Theyli learn not to mop the "Life-lads" fete again "


.. Encore Lt shouted one of the girls, and the shout ras takc.n up by the others.
"The Porty" was- encored twice again, and then Calypso Roao bloated out "Fire in
the Uiro"- twice. During that tine, the "moppers" began losing their steam.
Baygas had just started shifting the needle to play "Fire..."L for the third.
tio., when the loader of the "noppors" decided to make their presence officially
kno-wn and felt. He. signalled the other three, and at a wave of his hand, they'
raised their -almost emptied glass in a salute, and shouted, '.Lo cane, we. saw,
we. conquered I1 The slogan was hardly out of their youths before the youngest of
then flopped into a chair -- out like a lamp.
The' loader, in an un-loador-liko nmannor, lapsecT away before the remainder of
hia crew.. He leaned over a window, puked twice, and remainedd there -- inert.
The girl was the last to "pass out."' After the third boy had "retired hurt" on
a ench in the porch, she took off her shoes, tried ni-5ing the "Go-go" and the.
"Soul" into dne dance., finally gave it up, and sank into a conveniently placed
basket chair, with "Fire..." blasting away at top volume.
Hers was the only glas-to break' that night.
*
Poelu was.'served, and with a toast of 'Life couldn't bo more beautiful i pro-
posed by Coz, the "Lads" and lasses settled down to cat.
'Ay-ay I what happen t6O the fellers; who mop us non? asked Bullshitter, mpro.
drunk than a village sot, and spilling rico disproportionately over himself and
the floor.,
'Doy must tired already', suggostcd. Bingo.
I'Maybe they were drunk before they cane. here,' chimed in Coo-Cee, the liveliest
of the girls present.

"THE MOPPERS' CUPE"
'Ah... .hnn began Coz, looking up front his plate with an eye of disapproval;
'Eorgat- those blooming "noppoen"; -you nean all you have food in front all-you,
an' is "noppors" you all studying I "
No nore was said about the retired foursome.


Not unlike other parties whoro polau was a highlight, the serving of the
polau brought a change to the party. The rest of it was like a sort of anti-
climax. .
Tha supply of "chaser" and ice was dwindling, and sone of the girls were hinting.
that it- was time to go hone.
t'Bllshitter and Bini just took off down the road, boy', -reported one of the
girls, Gilma., who seemed disappointed, having danced with Bim nost of the. night
and liked it.
'Yes boy said Cee-Ceo, IDoy wont down there staggering and singing Breaker
calypso.
'Which one?t asked Mabol, a keen "Breaker-fan", who pridad herself. in knowing
all..his calypsos word-perfect. .
'The one about Zaboca and Jack.'
'Oh, "Dominica is a land of fete?" 1 like that one, boy,'
rAnyway, all you let's go nome, oh, Let.'s go and toll do. lady goodnight, or
good1iorning or whatever it is..
'Arready I exclaimnd Captain, O.K. papa "; he resigned himnslf.
TAyo, before all you go l' C oz was lifting up the young "nopper" from his chair,
as he spoke, tGive me a hand, we have a small cremoony to perform. My little
cpcporiaont worked well. Whhcl I. was a Boy Scout, dby used to toll no "Be prepared",
well T. was tonight; at last, those fellerst drinks were I '
At- that, everybody laugL~.d and proceeded to help hin to dunp the four bodies
unceremoniously in a nearby orpty lot of razor-grass.,
Glass still in hand, Fitter proposed another toast, "Down with those and all
"noppors!"; long live the "Lifo-lads ....
'BEppy night's rest, my Ilopping friendsa, wished. Cyril Baygas, ti thea -ecClit
figures in their grassy bed, Iand don't forget, all you awe us one glass-
tDoy ludydoy have nice weather tonight,' uttered Coz.
Once back inside, the necessary farewells with Mr-s. Hilson were made. She asked
the girls to cone again, and to Captain, who intended escorting Marie home- she
said, 'Don't-stay long oh, Mister man; you know you arroady? Mind I don't lock
you outside I I -.
Binjo proposed a "One for the road", and with that, literally poured "down the
hatch", the. gay set headed for the door.
Coz's strident tones.stopped.then in their tracks.
'Hold it I One minute, please. All you forgot soncthing I All eyes were on
hin. Fitter asked,
'Ihat?'
With a grin, C6z de mandcd,
r hon is the next feteo?

Jamaican :


Development Bank ,
As we have already pointed out editori-
ally, Jamaica's stand on the Regional
Developn-ent P,ank both as regards to
L-iation and intentions -- was well
I' ken.
Jamaica is to be the largest contrihu-
tar in the area. This, in itself, gives Ja-'
T.riaiCe cr'icial interest i;n the location ,t
th )ev'opior.c Tank and the pie.,eV
'.vric.h it i.li Follov,'. Vt1e whole niT ter.

:im of CARIFTA ar'e ; ..-, with
ihose of the other couni ries, tlre nmust
Vaturally be a divergmcni:e of opinion with
respr-ct to th' arims ot the Bank,
Jaataic is concerned in that the other
contributors to the Bank want it to act
as a tool for Caribbean integration. From
what we can see, Jamaica has more or
less been lured into CARIFTA, but has
made it more than clear that it has no-
rntention of becoming involved in an
ultimatee complete economic and political
union, perhaps long the lines of the de-
funct West Ind:es Federation.
On the other hand, we cannot see how
Sthe bank and the integration are going to
be separated. Once CARIFTA gets
started, the logical step will be the allo-
cation ot new industries to the various
countries Especially in the case of the
:.!p.'!r ijands wh"here capii:d is extreme-
scarce., te i; iting. will be for
iem to ;ppr'ai.:h the BaS.-. for fund'i.

'7our newspaper of 30th Harch brought

.Bravo I for Dorniica surely deserves
advortiseanonit abroad, through Television

Peasant life in any country is what
makos the history interesting; and so
we must not leave out the rural side'of
the place showing the peculiar dress,
language..and occupation of the. natives.
Therefore, 'I earnestly suggest for
the shooting, the loftiest village of
the Rosoaut.Valley; nanoly, Laudat; say
the 'Sop of Dominica." It abounds- in
lovely flowerzy especially the ouchait}
lily ,'daisics, narguorite and so on.
At this season the red Easter lily too,
abounds, Near to nost cottages re
senti~nls of orange, trees, with thick,
green foliage'backing clusters of ripe,
golden fruit. There you will sol-times
sec the women climbing the fruit trees
olik any man.
The Botanic Gardens in toimn is'famed
for its beautiful lawns and troos,
native as well as exotic front overseas.
But in the Lake district of Laudat you
are face to face with the cloud-capped,
towering mountains, and thus have half
the island at your foot.
