Proclaiming the rights of children does: not provide for their needs.

He goas on to say that the right to adequate. medical care is basic
- if a child is deprived of that right he is not likely to be able
to enjoy the others, which include special protection, facilities
for living in freedom and dignity, free education and recreation,
equal scope to develop individual talents; adequate nutrition,ho&s-
ing and medical care,. The first and last requirement ,
Many people who say they love children only really love their
own. That's a simple egoistic or biological emotion.Just try loving
and caring for another person's child, one of these days. Or if
you cannot go so far, help the fine organizations which bring hope
and life to sad, ill, neglected children such as the Save the
Children uAnd. By doing this, you are investing in the future. *

POINTS TO PONDER by Androcles

Have the students and young people of Dominica no interests? It is
impossible these days to open a newspaper without reading accounts of
student demonstrations, protests and other activities in all parts of
the world. No one in his right senses will advocate student riots as
-has happened in some places, but one would wish to see our students
making themselves felt in a sensible way. We are forever being told
that this is the day of youth, but what is our youth doing -- I mean
something positive and creative?
I want to give them an idea. I suggest that our students and young
people mount and press a campaign for reducing the voting age from 21
years to 18 years. Everyone knows that the young person of 18 today
is sufficiently mentally developed to be able to make a sensible pol-
itical choice: certainly far more sensible than the heavy mass of ill-
iterates which now dominates our electoral polls. I consider one stu-
dent of 18 years today to be worth a hundred of the illiterates as far
as being able to discriminate in measures for the advancement of Dom-
inica. I would sooner entrust the fortunes and future of Dominica to
the 18-year-olds than to this mass of undiscriminating voters. And in
this view all intelligent persons will concur.
I remember a few years ago the Opposition Party brought forward a
Resolution in the House (or Legislative Council as it was then called)
to amend the existing law to permit persons to vote at elections to
the House from the age of 18 instead of the present 21. The Government,
killed the Resolution, thus depriving that very intelligent and enlight-
ened section of the population of a say in the affairs of their country.
I suggest that 18-year-olds should not take this as a final answer and
I strongly urge them to re-open this matter without delay, after first
discussing it in their various schools, clubs and other organizations.
We are looking to you, the youth of Dominica, to take up this challenge.
Wouldn+ some of you like to initiate correspondence on this suggestion
in the local press?
+++ +++ +++ +++ +++ +++
Many are the reasons being suggested as the cause of the Government
expulsion of Mr Cadenas from Dominica. There is, however, one element
common to all the guesses of intelligent persons, viz. that the depor-
tation was not on account of security. The compelling logic in this
view is that if Mr Cadenas had been a security risk, the Government
would not have waited until his permit of residence had expired before
taking deporting action. This, I think, is incontrovertible proof.
What, then, were the motivating factors in this deportation? Having
heard the various .possible alternative reasons, my mind has fixed on
two: (1) that Mr Cadenas, by virtue of his painful experience in see-
ing Communism delelop in Cuba (from whence he was forced to flee), is
S quick to note the early warning signs of Communism (or "Socialism",
under which term it is often disguised) and to point them out. 1r
Cadenas' presence was therefore embarrassing and uncomfortable to those
bent on introducing this ideology into Dominica and who have the nec-
essary influence to bring about deportation. (Please also see next
section). I understand that Mr Cadenas had expressed fear '.nd worry
in what he saw around him as the typical ecrly signs. Hence: he; had
better be out of the way.
The other view I hold is that Mr Cadenas' head was offered to the
Trade Unions who had openly last Holy Thursday parac.ed the streets
of Roseau carrying placards demanding Cadenas' expulsion.

Well folks, the tournament drew its curtain
to a close with a big "bing-BAIG" for Dominica.
'Heartfelt congrats to our boys, especially
of course, Irving- Shillingford for his magnif-
icent display in scoring a century in both
innings of the fin&l match. He certainly do-
serves every one of his 16 prizes. And it is
sure grand to know that seven of' our boys
iave been chosen for the Windwards team. Well
lone, boys!
And here now is "TH3 CASs OF THE BRsLDMRUIT
'.TE". This tree is near the rear kitchen of
a house in River Street, and is making life
'almost unbearable' for the lady residing-
there. Travelling huckster, Miss Evelyn Irish,
has reopcrtely during the past two years been-
notifying the Town Council that this bread-
fruit tree is a menace to the house, yet no-
thing has been done by the Council, last.
Moonday a breadfruit (in the process of' being
picked) hurtled through a window-pane in her
living room, leaving a trail of broken glass
on the floor. The breadfruitb-picker was con-
fronted but as yet nothing has been done to
repair or settle for the damage.
Says Miss Irish "I have written to the
Town Council; but as usual, I don't expect
much from them." Isn't it time that this
department shook off its 'possum~ slumber?

ANDROCLES (continued): It is also known that for weeks in advance,
certain persons connected with Trade Unions had been assuring other
persons that Mr Cadenas would be expelled. I do not go into the ques-
tioh of whether or not he was unjustly tough with labour. Suffice it
that toughness towards Trade Unions can never oe justification for the
deportation of a person: industrial relations processes take care of
such situations. Thus this act was an appeasement to Trade Unions in
general though requested by one Union in particular and even though in
the final analysis it is the Trade Unions more than any other which
will sfTfer the full consequences of the act which at one fell blow
chased away much-needed foreign capital from Dominica. My further
thinking on this subject is as follows: desperate to regain the esteem
of the voting masses, Government makes it appear that it is well on
their side by,expelling a non-native whom the Trade Union have pointed
out as an unfriendly person. In so doing, the Government hopes to re-
capture favour with workers, at present extremely critical of it. With
what object in view does the Government do this? It fears that if
things continue on their present course, by the time General Elections
come round the situation will be beyond redemption. Thus if it makes
a sufficiently big impression on workers in general, the Government
may be emboldened to call a snap General Election, taking the country
by surprise to get a new 5-year term. As a matter of fact I see the
Price Control Order affair as another arm of this strategy, in this
case to appear over the dead body of the mercantile community as cham-
pions of the consumer. It is of course looking for immediate short-
term advantages, even though it is aware that *in the long run the ex-
pulsion of Cadenas with its surrounding circumstances must damage ir-
reparably the foreign investment prospects of Dominica, notably as re-
gards SIPA, and that in the matter of expecting merchants to sell goods
below cost, including normal profits, the Government is bound to fail.
Thus the trumpeting call to be blown to rival political parties, pro-
spective independent candidates and the general public is: BE PREPARED!

+++ ++- +++ +++ +++ +++
For some time now people have been sensing that there is something
amiss in Dominica. The "atmosphere has appeared charged. Strange
things have been happening and there has developed a psychological con-
dition akin to the feeling of oppression experienced before a storm,
A sense of unease and insecurity pervades the place and erupts occas-
ionally into such events as the desire to destroy the mercantile comm-
unity via an unrealistic price control and the chasing away of foreign
capital by Government acts such as the attack on the Archbold invest-
ment with its consequent effects on the Sunday Island Port Authority
project, now almost certainly doomed. We hear of plans to confiscate
private lands and of schemes to compel grapefruit and lime producers
to sell their crops at a lower price to a Government -established Mar-
keting Board which has failed ignominiously each time it has attempted
an enterprise. As a.r.esault of all this, local entrepreneurs have taken
fright and pulled the knot of their m-rse strings, regretting investment
which they have already Made and vowing no further development in the
existing state of what feels like impending doom.
It was against this background that a number of well-inforned pat-
riotic persons in Dominica decided to probe this abnormal state of aff-
airs and in the course of this probe unearthed this interesting fact:
That there is am underground group operating here in Dominica a.id draw-
ir. its inspiration from a certain source in Guyana. It includes o:ie Cab-
inet Minister, severalpersons in quasi-Government and Governaes-t em-
ploy. Its front is a secret youth organization ostensibly concerned
with social and economic studies.

Story LULU by Collins F. O'Neill
(The writer wishes to remind readers that the names
uscc in this story are wholly fictitious and im-
aginary and, as true or real as they may seem,
do not pertain to anyone, dead or living.)
PART 2: Boland's Investigation at Hospital
,SUPERINTENDENT Boland's ear pulled up in the parking space before
the city hospital. It was raining buckets of drops. With his long,
khaki raincoat on, Boland hurried along the sidewalk leading to the
wards on the eastern side of the hospital. He walked up the middle
path to a ward with a signboard overhead marked "WARD B SURGICAL"o He
stood for a while, then a nurse came out through the winged screen.
Boland smiled furtively, said "Err-r, good morning."
"Good morning," the nurse replied, "Can I help you?" she was rather
polite. Boland dipped his right hand in the inner breast-pocket of
his coat and produced a badge. The nurse widened her eyes, said calm-
ly "Oh, police. What can I do for you?"
"I hope I would not be causing you too much trouble, but may I be
permitted to see Miss L. Webb?"
"I would certainly be happy to permit you, sir, but unfortunately
this is a female surgical ward and you do realise the morning is still
quite young. Despite the fact that it is already high day most of the
patients here are now getting up. Could you please drop in again at
ten?"
"Delighted," s-id Boland, "I shall be delighted to return. But
meanwhile, may I ask how is her condition this morning?"
"Well, at least," she replied, "she is a little improved. She was
unconscious when they brought her in last night."
"Yes, I know," Boland interrupted, "but what? is she still uncon-
Scious?"
"No. She just a while ago got out of it."
"Well, I'm pleased to know that. Anyway I shall return at ten.
Thank youj" The Officer had already turned away when the nurse bec-
ame curious. "Oh, by the way, sir," she smiled, "may I ask you a que-
stion, sir just one?"
Boland stood and turned to face her, but did not walk back to her,
said "Sure, why not? That's your privilege at least."
"Was she driving the car that made the accident?"
"Why do you want to know if Lulu is in trouble?" he replied tact-
fully, then it came quickly, "Nurse, 'what' are you?"
The nurse gnve a quick glance towards the ward and again smiled,
said, "lurse James Sheila James," and immediately she continued soft-
ly, "Is she in trouble?"
For a moment Boland felt that this nurse might be able to help him
along his trail, but decided first to answer her questions. "At the,
moment, Nurse Janos, there's no trouble that we foresee. I simply
came to investigate the accident. Why did you want to know if she was
driving the car?"
"She's my friend," the nurse replied.
"Did she tell you a man was killed in the accident?"
The nurse blushed, then stared directly into Boland's eyes. "No,"
she said, "No, I heard it over the r-dio this r.iorning.
This was certainly a piece of diplomatic encounter for Boland. He
wanted to remind her that the local radio station does not broadcast
before 10.30 a.m., but thought it even more diplomatic to let her get
by with that at least for the moment. Soon after the nurse returned
to her ward he found out that she lived at Pt Michel and that she.
was Ma Son-Son's daughter.Boland returned to the doorway and knocked

on the winged screen. Nurse James again pushed the screen and standing
between it, said, "Yes, please?"
"Pardon me, nurse," Boland apologised, "Pardon my disturbing you again.
You said I couldn't enter the ward at this time of the morning, then
please, would you be good enough to allow Lulu to come out to me -
there are a few questions I'd like to ask her. They're urgent."
"I'm sorry, sir. Doctor left strict orders that she must be kept
quiet in bed," she said, "but maybe if you can see Doctor Braithwaite
he migit be able to help you."
"When is he likely to be in?"
"He should be in any time after ten o'clock," replied the nurse, "will
you excuse me now?" She turned to leave but Boland requested, "Oh,
miss, you said Lulu is your friend, could you please do me a favour?"
"What sir?"
"Don't say anything to he-r about me, not even to the doctor"
"There's no need, sir," the nurse said quickly and disappeared into;
the ward.
Lulu sat half-way up on her bed for most of the morning reading a
True Story magazine. Despite the Superintendent's request to keep his
arrival a secret, no sooner had he left the hospital than the nurse
rushed in and had a long, secret conversation with Lulu. Lulu quickly
gave her something wrapped up in a bit of newspaper to hide away for
her. Lulu, too, had for some.reason abandoned her magazine at a couple
of minutes to ten and started groaning as if in intense pain. Even up
to the moment the detective returned she had made her condition seem
very unsatisfactory.
"How are you this morning?" Boland asked her. She shook her head
from left to right and still groaning, said "Sick.....sick....I sick
too much. I not fink I going to live." Her speech was broken and
much like that of a dying patient. It seemed too that Lulu was ex-
pecting the police from the time ,~a regained consciousness. She had
asked a night nurse earlier in the morning whether anyone came around
to her while she was unconscious. She knew for sure that the detect-
ive had now come to question her but inasmuch as there was not much
time to. fabricate a good story all she had to do for the moment was
to pretend, and in a manner that not even the doctor might realise.
"What's the matter with you?" asked Boland.
"I sick, I sick, I sick too much." Her English was awful, "You is
ve doctor, nuh?" continuing to groan.
Boland chuckled. "No, Miss Webb, I am noi the doctor. But'I under-
stand the doctor will be seeing you in a while again. Just try to be
quiet till h-. comes. I was told you were in a car that crashed into
the sea ." Boland was coming in diplomatically, but could anyone be
more diplomatic than Lulu?
Under her groans she replied "Crashed?" Boland, staring s-traight
into her eyes, replied. "Yes, crashed."
"I I I" Lulu stammered, "I can't remember ahyfing. I I I got
a lash in my head."
The detective noted that she was pretending and he started becoming
somewhat angry, said,i "So you don't remember what you did? You don't
even remember that you were driving in a Pontiac car from Pte Michel
last night after?"
Lulu gasped, "After? What what you mean,'after'?"
Then the detective,-again noting a strange reaction snapped "Seems
you really don't remember anything."
"I I remember yes. I remember we had .... we had....." she rep-
uated her groaning tricks, "we had some friends."

LULU: (cont.) "Miss Webb," address-
ed Boland, "Now listen to me care-
fully. I spoke to Dr Braithwaite
earlier this morning. He told me
you are fit for discharge today,"
said Boland. (This was not true but
Boland had determined that he must
get gold and in order to get gold
he had to dig deep very deep.)
"Miss Webb" he continued, "I have
every reason to believe that you
are adding on to your illness by.
groaning so excessively. I am in-
clined to believe too that in some
way or other you are involved to.
an extent that you are seeking a
good chance to fabricate a story so
that you would better be able to
defend yourself. You cannot con-
ceal evidence from the police. Un-
fortunately, too, I had your doc-
tor's assurance that you were fit
fit even to face any sort of cri-
minal investigation," Boland con-
cluded.
Lulu frowned. "I not know what
you mean saying I adding on, but
if you want me to drop dong dead
here on me bed," Lulu cried, "go
on 'plexing me."
Boland turned on his heel and was
about to leave as a new figure en-
tered the ward.

This?")

HELP PLEASE!
Dear Editor,
Greetings from the Cub-
Scout leaders who made a W.I. tour
last summer and spent two memorable
days in your Island Home. Then,
we were taken care of by folks in-
volved with Scouting and Girl Guid-
.ing, some of whom were Mr Jacob
Dib, Mrs L.o Robinson and Miss El-
aine Warrington.
This summer I am repeating the
tour with a group of teachers -
chiefly ladies of whose Associa-
tion I am President this year. I
alone of last year's group will
be on the tour all the others
anticipating the pleasures that the
Scouters enjoyed last summer.
To date I have written both Mrs
Roi.inson and Miss Warrington, but
not hearing from them I decided to
write to you, asking your help,
.(eon.lit, noxt columnm)


-I need to contact any Teachers'
Association that exists in your
Island Home, so as toinform them
of our plans and ask their help
whilst spending two separate days
there. Can you help please?
I will be very grateful for
anything you can do to help us as
there is so much difference to a
stranger in a strange land who
sees a welcoming hand and smile
extended ,to no welcome at all.
I would be further obliged if you
could contact the ladies mentioned
herein and find out if they did
receive my earlier letters.
We will be travelling by the
Federal Palm, leaving Jamaica on
July 19th and reaching Dominica
on Wednesday July 24th, and again
on Wednesday August 7th. We do,
wish to see the places of interest
Sin your island on one of these
days, the first day preferably,
whist we would just browze; around
on our own on the second day, -
unless you have any other advice
for us. I do hope you find it poss-
ible to help us and I do look for-
ward to hearing from you at as
early a date as possible.
Yours sincerely,

MLAHATMA GANDHI MEMORIAL
British P.M. Mr Wilson recently un-
veiled a statue of Mahatma Gandhi,
Indian patriot who campaigned for
home rule before his 148 assassin-
ation. The bronze sculpture by Po-
lish Fredda Brilliant depicts the
diminutive clhoti-clad figure. in fa-
miliar cross-legged attitude, set on
on a concave base of Portland stone,
and is located in Tavistock Square,
London. Lord Sorensen, Chairman of
Gandhi Trust responsible for erect-
ion of the statue says the 10,000
sculpture will be "a worthy tribute
to one of the world's greatest men."

Continuing WELL DONE GOVT. fr. p. 16:-
as they can remember, a Dominican living in
one of the Associated States for over 40
years had to leave that country by order of
that Government without giving any reason,
and what made it worse was leaving behind
his dear family which he loved so well.Up
to now no reason has been given for so do-
ing. Today, a Cuban was given a work
permit for two yerrs in this State, which
came to an end. He isked for another two
and was told no, he will have to leave.
What is so wrong about it? Why should Dom-
inicans with high degrees of knowledge
make advantage of others? I dare say all
this should stop if we want Dominica to
be a real member of the Associated States.
Scotland Yard and F.B.I. are sent out to
do a job. It takes them years in some cam
before they get what they really want,and
at the end of it everything proves right.
Are not these people doing a good job for
their Government? So, if our Government
here have gone to their geoads of Depart-
ment to find out certain information,and
at the end got what is needed, and told
Cadenas he must go, are not these people
doing something good to protect us?
