AS I SEE IT by Androcles
There is one great (and it could be fatal) weakness in us Dominicans.
Very few are prepared to sustain a fight, sacrifice for a cause or
suffer for our views. It has been noted by outsiders who have-resided
in our midst for some time that we are, despite some other charming
characteristics, a rather fickle and light-headed people, without
strong commitment to ideals and ever ready to take the line of least
This state of mind will now have to come to an end. We must each
of us be prepared from henceforth tb stand up and be counted. Because
the times are rapidly becoming evil and those desiring to subvert, as
distinct from wishing to modify, the social order are growing bolder,
we shall have to drop our spiritual and moral lethargy if we wish to
escape the horrors which persons, even in this geographical region,
have had to endure in recent times.
One indication of what I am alluding to is to be found in the new
attitude of Government towards private enterprise. It is known that
consideration has been given to a plan for Government, in certain cir-
cumstances not involving an unprovoked crisis, to enter mercantile
trading. It is beyond doubt that from the same source of inspiration
(Beware of the Greeks even when they bring gifts!) Government is being
urged to take over from existing bodies and individuals the marketing
of produce and entrusting it to the Marketing Board, whose performance
in this field, in relation to even minor products, has been most unin-
spiring as the comparative activities of "Baba" Butler, now of the Cit-
rus Unlimited organization, so amply illustrate. Again I say: let
Government beware of a Trojan horse.
Perhaps this is as good an opportunity as any to comment in greater
detail on what is a looming crisis being brought upon us by the ideo-
logical enterprise to which I have been alluding. I predict that this
crisis will be the first open confrontation between opposing ideologies
and readers must see it in this light.
The record and performance of the Agricultural Marketing Board is a
sad stray of rank incompetence and persistent mismanagement since Mr
Clarence ("Baba") Butler severed connexion with that organization.
The market which Mr Butler had developed in items like ground provi-
sions, pumpkins, dry coconuts, plantains etc. have been lost by the
Marketing Board and been secured by Mr Butler himself in his new cap-
acity and by others like Dr Blatcher. As a matter of fact, I know of
one instance in which one of these exporters bought out all the produce
of a certain type held by the Marketing Board because he could pay them
a higher price than the Board could get ifthe shipped. As has al-
ready been mentioned in another section of the local press, the Market-
ing Board some time last year accepted an order from Curacao for oranges,
bought the fruit from growers and then discovered that it had no ship-
ping opportunity to Curacao, so that some readers may remember a day
in 1967 in which a group of young ladies paraded the town of Roseau in
a truck throwing oranges to passers-by and advising people to consume
oranges for health benefits. This was the result of that particular
Now it is this same organization which is recommending to Government
that the power of the law be invoked to allow it to take over the mar-
keting of citrus and limes from all producers and exporters. This
means that the itrus Growers Association, a co-operative organization
of citrus producers, and which has brought the grapefruit industry from
nothing to a point where its sales this year are. estimated, according
to another section of the local press, at $700,000, is proposed to be
destroyed by the takeover. count on page

Continuing our mystery serial-
LULU by Collins F., O'Neill iii
BOLAND turned on his heel and was about to leave as a dark,
slim figure entered the ward. He was tall and about 40. He looked Bo-
land over slowly from head to feet, then said, "I understand, Boland,
that you're sticking your nose into what doesn't concern you. What a
thing! That girl, Lulu, is innocent better lay off her." He spoke
in soft subdued tones so that no-one else could hear, "You're leaving
now, Boland," he continued, "Very safely, but it would not be safe for
you to return."
Boland decided that this was a most formidable situation and after a
quick thought decided to play it safe. Whatever had beer, the trick,
Boland was not afraid, since he knew that plain-clothes police were
posted outside the ward. Yet Boland was not playing it that way. His
one objective was to find Herman Russell's killer, and running into a
hostile attitude would serve no useful purpose, but only lessen the
possibility of an early arrest.
"You spoke in soft tones," Boland told the man, "you puzzle me. How
should I take this as a warning or a threat?"
"It's no threat," the man replied, "and what if it was want to do
something about At?"
Boland smiled. "No, I don't want to be lynched," he said, "I'm glad you
warned me. Thanks."
Dete.ctive-Spperinteneent Boland had beqn aiming at just one thing,
to question Lulu before she was dischargecL from the hospital. He knew
that otherwise her friends outside, whoever they migh' be, would then
be able to cajole her and that would give his case a very different
Dr Braithwaite entered the ward with his stethoscope round his neck.
He glanced at all his patients and soonwalked over to Lulu's bed where
both the detective and the strange man stood watching his approach.
"Good morning, Superintendent," Dr B-aithwaite greeted. Boland bowed.
"'morning doctor."
Braithwaite also glanced at the slim dark .man, sai_ "Hello MIack."
The man. with a gesture of his right hand replied casually, "Hi, doc."
Then Braithwaite with another glance nt his patient said quietly, "The
patient looks very hysterical. I gave orders that she should remain
quiet in bed for five days. Has she beer out?" turning to speak to a
nurse who was preparing an injection a little way off, "Where's Nurse
James?" Dr Braithwaite was for some reason attempting to shield his
patient, and intended to do so no matter what or how much it cost him.
"Nur'se," he repeated, "Nurse, has Miss Webb been' out of her bed at any
"No, doctor," she replied quCickkly.
"I have just been examining her,"-;,.the doctor continued, "and found
that' her condition doesn't seem of the best this morning. She is in
an intense state of hysteria at the moment. That shouldn't have been,"
he continued, pretending to be utterly disappointed; then immediately
turned to Boland, "Err-r.." he drawled, "Superintendent, if you will
excuse me I take it you were about to begin your interrogations of
this patient," he was tactful, "but she definitely is not in a state
this morning to be questioned."
"I did notice something strange about her,' the detectivee replied,
"but I wasn't sure. I thought she was pretending."
Braithwaite said quickly "No,.she was not pretending. If you have
been questioning her," he said firmly, "I can tell you that you have
thrown her into an intense state of hysteria a state that can often
result in either sudden death or accite mental derangement."
"But sir," the detective said, "Dr Brown who attended to her last
night said only this morning that she was fit,"'

"Well if she was then," said Dr Braithwaite, "she's not now. You
may leave, sir" he ordered.
Boland took one step, then facedthe doctor again, "Could you advise
me, doctor," he said, "as to when I may return to continue my investi-
"Miss Webb, sir, may have to remain in hospital for a much longer
period. And I am just as anxious for her to make an early recovery as
you are to carry out your investigation." Braithwaite in conclusion
lifted his hand to the detective's shoulder and led him aside. "Boland,"
he said, "let's have a little private talk together. Boland, profess-
ional men like you and me have something in common."
"What's that, doctor?" replied Boland.
"What do you want to find out, doctor, an(" why?"
"A doctor always has his patient's case at heart; I need to know
what trouble my patient is in."
Boland chuckled, sgi, "Well, there s io immediate trouble that I
foresee; I'm simply collecting evidence. There; was an accident in
which a man- was killed, you know that. And., doctor, confidentially,
you seem to be shielding this particular pa-tiet. What is'your reason~, ?'"':
This sudden attack made the doctor somewhat perturbed and angry
and his one alternative now was to get rid of Boland as fast as he could.
"Macki" the doctor yelled, and Mack (who was now lying in pyjamas, un-
seen by the detective) hurried from a bed about six yards behind the
detective's back, with his bed-sheet around him. "Mack, get this fellow
on to the empty bed."
Mgck quickly pulled back the sheet a bit and there the detective
was facing-a pistol which was: being levelled direct at his chest. "Take
no chances, ack, get him quickly to the bed I shall return in an hour."
Dr. Brathwaite headed for the winged screen, but did not go out. He had
quickly passed a nearby folding blind so as to be hidden by it, then
suddenly he side-stepped and dealt the detective a blow that sent him
unconscious to the floor, the folding blind obscuring the views of all
patients in the ward. Only the nurse who possibly had been deliberate-
ly looking in that direction was; able to' see what had happened.', She
hurried over and assisted them to get Boland onto the vacant bed.
"Nurse," said the doctor, '"now quickly fix'me a Klopobenedine
injection." And immediately'she complied, the doctor whispered, "Nurse
James, remember what T told you last night when Lulu entered the ward?"
'Yes,'doctor," the nurse replied. :
"Good," the doctor said, "even'this and everything else here must
be kept in perfect confidence, you understand?" '
The nurse bowed her head, said: "can trust me, doc ..ways."
"Very well," Brathwaite replied. "Well, well keep this man here
for a while. The Klopobenedi&.. injection will keep him unconscious for
as long as we require; meanwhile investigations o Lulu's case would:
slow up a bit. Meanwhile too the body in, the trunk of the Pontiac can
now be taken out and disposed of." He was speaking very low.
Lulu who was straining to hear the conversation, said: to the

Bradshaw's utterances in the Hous;e of Assem-
bly on Wednesday, May 29, during the debate
that followed a resolution moved by himself
extending the State of Emtergency in Anguilla
to 31 December,. 1968.

Let me repeat here, Mr. Speaker, that the-
lifting of the State of Emergency gives the
criminalss who were ill-advised an opportunity to
show wh-heer they have reformed or whether
they intend to pursue their criminal and sub-
versive activities. If they choose to do the latter
- and I believe (and I use the word advisely) that
they still intend to pursue their subversive and
criminal activities they are quite frec: to do it
but they must also understand that they will be
free to accept the consequence.

To suggest in lthO 20th century that we should adopt
African customs is to deny the existence of a West Indian
culture. For we have. over !he centuries, developeil a
culture which le inot be said to be wholly European nor
wholly African, even though there is perhaps more of the
former than of the latter.
We have travelled far'from Africa ton far Perhaps.
but we cannot turn back now. What is important, how-
ever, is that fromu here on we should be less hamstrung
by European traditions than we were in the past. We
should not for example fivt'i ourselves encouraging ballet
for its snob value and discouraging limbo for its earthiness.
In the matter of dress too our desire to be cotmfortable
should be paramounti and we should ,dress to suit the West
Indian and not the European climate.
ft is, however, as facetious to suggest that our women
should wear ririgs in ilheir noses and dung in their hair as
to suggest that Bajanl men should revert to the loin cloth.
And if our women think they look more beautiful by
using artificial aids, like lipstc.k, then by all means let
them, Our women must never become so befuddled by
Theology that they cease to be women.
