We seem to be developing -in Doiifiica a new science, art or philosophy
-- call it what you will -- i.n.which economic activity is being inex-
tricably intertwined-with politics. .We-are well aware, -of course, that
in the m oern'dtate the politics 4of the Government in power, as it were,
surrounds the arena in which economic forces nave their play and. .this
is -generally a. cepted. 'W 'What is strange,n new and. dangerous isa' the state
of affairs in which it is sought to have day-to-day and hour-to-hour
economic activities conditioned by and shot through with political con-
siderations. Until a better term is forthcoming, I dub this new social
phenomenon "politiconomics".
The latest manifestation we have of this makes -its, appearance in the
valuable 'banana industry. That an industry upon which the bulk of the
national income depends should be used as a stepping stone to political
power is as dangerous a game as was.ever played with a country s daily
bread. Yet this is precisely-what is happening today in the.organiaat-
ion of the barana industry. Those.'.who -attended the very recent Annual"'
General Meeting saw to their horrqi how election to the Board hagr..been
Rigged to the advantage of an incipient political, group, largely based
in" the NorthernDistrli ct-. It is clear, therefore, that when politics,
actual oi prospective, enters- into the--coiposition of the Board of Di-
rectors of the Banana "Association, the island is Aot getting the best
possible group of. persons.acapable: of directing this basic industry. Not
having the best available. is always'a source of weakness.' I dbn't know
why people cannot; awake& -to- what- is' happening around them.
Another recent clear instance of politiconomics was the appointments
to the Dominica Agricuiltual' Marketing Board,- A Board- which is -spposed
to see after the marketing of agricultural produce is made up of persons
who for the most part have no knowledge -of what the whole about
Sand yet, presumptuous enough to -re-quest that it be given monopoly pow-
ers of control over the marketing of the .island's citrus and limes.
The only common qualification that the majority of the appointees have
is membership or support of.:the ruling Labour Party. Surely, adherence
to that Party is not what enables a.person to judge and assess marketing
potentials and suitabilities-. Here again, therefore, our next most im-
Sportant industry could be placed in grave danger because the direction
Sand organization of its. most. vital aspect falls into, incompetent but'
political hands.
From the two instances given, it will be seen that politiconomies is
being practised both by Government and noh-Government groupings. The
producer is thus being regarded as a fool to'be- used- for the political.
aims, ends- and aspirations of persons -unscrupulous enough to- insinuate.
themselves irno spheres of industry while their carefully concealed mo- "'
S.ives are chiefly political and well knowing that large numbers of pro-
ducers in their usual carefree-, superficial manner, will :go along.- How

ANDROCLES (cont,) Yet, it is: not so long ago that the drains.of .thf e
area were regularly scrubbed and one saw supervisors ensuring the work
was properly done. Why this present state of affairs?
Next, the large.number of drunks along the route on that Sunday
afternoon was most depressiing. Men and women in a'state of stupor,
dirty and bedraggled, emerging from the bordering slums. Then hordes
of-unwashed, undressed,-unkempt children swarming about.
I thought to myself: the problem of Dominica is much greater than
most of us realise. Itocc~rred to me, too,. that rather than decreas-
ing, our slums are increasing. -And then I fell to thinking of all the
promises that have been made to the poor and labouring classes these
past several years and two General Elections ago and how these. undiscer-
ning unfortuhates swallowed alt the-bait. I also wondered whether*they
are truly aware of their situation ayd: concluded that if they are, -there
are dangerous days ahead for Dominick.
It is of no use pretending,.as soie superficial observers do, that
this is a prodbem which, if each person does his bit, is capable of sol-
ution. :To hold this view is to ignore :reality. 'Other persons are too:
busy with their own'pressing problems: to be able to do justice to such
a situation. It is a matter which the princ:.pal community organ, the
State, must .solve with.the resources which the citizens must put at its
disposal., Some do-gooders may go around as they have always done, but
their efforts will be insignificant in the face of this problem.
To my mind, there'are-two.elements in the s-tuation. The first, as
can easily be imagined, is economic'development. This-must enable work-
to be much more available so that incomes of all spr-ts, including Gov-
ernment incomes, are generated. Part, but only fpart*,of the solution
to the problem we are',discussing, is the re'ilf of poverty. This is w'hy
one must be so impatient' and intolerant of.pubIlic measures,. or the lack
of them, which are inimical toi economic growtT.o Need, one recapitulate
them? Acts which keep foreign, capital away;, hostility towards segment s
of the population which are the normal initi.a:;ors of economic acttivity,
e.g. the Chamber of Commerce.,and the so-caJle<. richht; the outlook
which regards taxation policy-only as a means of redistribution and not
as a stimulant to economic :development; r.ppo:.ntment' to public bodies of
persons unable to make a contribution; the institution of petty irrit-
ating measures against those directing segments of the economic life of
the community, e.g. proposals to remove the nuarketing of citrus from
producers.' Such things inhibit economic growth, which is an essential
precondition to solving such.soeial problems like the one we have been
discussing. .
SThe other element in the:, solutior- of the problem is that greatly in-
.tensified social work must be carried on amo-ig this submerged section
of the population. Efforts in child, care, environmental sanitation,
Housing, home economics,health, etc. will have to be on a much larger
dt scale than what, if any, is being. attempted. BVt here agair we. shall
,i need money to pay such social workers, to ciear slums, etc. Thus we &ri..
back to the view that basic to a solution of such striking social prob--
lems is economic development. Hence all measures conducive to this ena
must receive the. highest. priority. That i;z why, I am convinced that tl-
million dollar office complex being put up by the Government was mo01cY
badly spent. It would be useful, it seem to me, if Trade Unions woul
use their influence to see t this mater of the priority of spenmdi,
on economic development project's receives the recognition is Gover we
circles that it has for long failed to sure. Unless this is done., w
must continue to wallow in the mir-e of inhuman social collditions.

SVcR T S .o r> AY BA4- 19 1

When. the sea around. the North-eastern coast of Dominica is not so rough., men with
their boats loaded with coconuts and provisions cross the ,channel over to Marie
Galante,, sell. their cargo, and return back to Do.inica with bottles of wine and other
French goods. Knowni"to thlem as "making a traffic", it idn't s9f.profitable as some
peoip-e believe, for. the hardships, .dangers and misfortunes that these brave men meet
at times make the candles cost more than the funeral.
Claude, Dominic and.'BAddy had planned to make a traffic to Marie Galante; Claude,
who spent all his itime fishing, and. never .cultivated a garden, promised to make "a
load of limes"; Dominic too lazy to gather coconuts from his lands made a deal to
sell some baskets for his cousin for half the profits, and Paddy was to obtain some
bags of provisions. '.
Now Claude was to be.-the navigator and Captain, because he (among the trio) was.
the only one who had been to Marioe Salante before. After the voyage they were to
g[ive Ma hniday four bottles of i-iie for. the use of the boat, which belonged to her
dead husband. "
Ai few day:; later, in broad daylight,, Claude was seen under a lime tree, which
did not belong to him, moving like a mouse, and filling a fertilizer bagwi.thW limes.
Paddy, visiting every frilendbiifanily he knew and drying out hoi hi's:Madame was..not
"oo well and couldn't help in the garden, collected four Ibags of.iprovisions; DIominie 'i
collected his Tian'd-wov~a baskets, and the trio was oTf with a flying start.*-: ..
The morning came for':theo expoqdition: Dominic aid Iaddy waited for Claude at
the:bay, but Claud.ra-ever' came,... so iaddy hurricd'e.ur- to Claude's home in, the-hills. -
where he found him (in his vest' in trousers) as dcoo6aas a -river-in of
Dominica, fixing a line to. go fishing-- ........ -- ..
:.".What happen now, Claude?" Paddy, asked, surprised 'hd indignant.
"I feeling sick this morning, man, Claude remarked cooLy, "I can't ga--ewhere."
-'"mSo what about.d r'ei. i:rovision, and atll iiy ime Dominic and me have all-we
load by de biy, We'' waiting on you mant."
"I tell you I s.cIL, im:an; moi ha 'ialade -- I cannot go," Claudjp argued... then he
jumped out of ti. house and fled do;n a trace towards another bay presumably to
joir sooi other fish'6ren. '.
.The truth was b.tlt tClud.o--fYid iot coiolct the amount of limes required to make

"Ils it a long distance Qall?" asked Dr Braithwaite.
"Nb. You just have to dial," said Lulu.
Braithwaite looked well to ensure that no one else was around, then
walked casually over to the telephone in the corner opposite and dialled.
A husky voice on the other end answered, ."Hello."
"Is that the Casanova Club?" Braithwaite asked.
"What yoT mean, the Casanova Club?" the voice on the phone replied.
"Come an, fellow," Braithwaite tolQ him, "Don-t be stupid. Get Jack

There was a pause and then a different voice said excitedly, "You're

was some kind of impediment in his speech.

Dr Braithwaite was clever enough not o mention his car number on
Sthe telephone, fearing -that someone, somewhereB might 'by coincidence
be listening and this might prove very detrimental to him.
It was exactly 2.30 p.m. When the blue. sedan cruised down the street
towards Astaphan's Shopping Centre. Jack walked out casually with a
parcel and sat on the front seat near the doctor As the sedan went
down the street, Jack gazed at the doctor every now and again; thea
"You are Doctor Braithwaite?"
"I thought. it was the police."
"Expected the police?"
"No." Jack was abrupt. "What do you want me for?"
"It's about my daughter."
"I I I do not know your daughter, sir, vho's she?"
The blue sedan pulled up before the doctor's office on Old Qtree t
and both men alighted. He opened the front door and they walked in.
Jack was still'gazing at him whilst they sat down at a table opposite
to each other. Braithwaite produced a cigarette case, said ""
"Thanks, Tot," Jack,.replied.
"Yes," said Braithwaite, "I was talking about my daughter. You know
Lulu all right."
"I never knew she was. your. daughter."
"There are a lot of things you don't know, Son."
"I agree, sir," he said.
"Jack, I want you to sign a confession."
WJack was excited, "I am innocent," he exclaimed, "I am innocent'." He
c was beginning to get cold sweat. "It was your daughter, sir, it was
your own daughter."
"Take it easy son," the Aoctor said, "take it easy. you didn't let
me finish. My'-,aughter told me that you are her fiance. I found, out
that she is two months pregnant. I want you to sign a confession that
yo-t are the child's father and that you are, going to marry her,"
Jack amiled a smile of relief, then. said, "Pardo, my irritated state,
sir, but your daughter never intimated to me: that she was like that.
Your daughter, sir, never kept to one man, -.t would be difficult for
me: to prove. I am her child's father," remarked the young lover.
"My man," said the doctor, "if you cannot make up your mind I'm go-
ing to turn you oveW to the police," She. doctor *fatifgct put out
his hand to take up the telephone receiver,

"Wait, sir, what that do you want to turn me in for?"
"Murder, mister, tmrder. You murdered a man called Manswell, anA.
you packed his body in the trunk of a Pontiac car," he said. "My daqugh-
ter saW you. Signing this confession admitting the paternity of the
child and promising to marry her might be the only thing to save your
neck from the gallows!"

Jack hadZ only one alternative and that was to call for a ppn, re-
gardless of whether he kept his promise or not.
"You are. a very sensible young man," Braff told him as. he folded the
sheet of paper and put it in his shirt pocket, "The. second step, Jack,
is' to) get that Pontiae out of the police yard. And you are: to do? just
as I ordered you."
"Yes, sir," Jack said.
"Now I got to return to the hospital right away," said Dr Braithwaite.,
'~"he Hiring System of the Heavy Equipment Department closes at 4 p.m.
Go there now. Hire the biggest crane with the longest ji-b. Tell them
you don't need an operators that you will drive it Jourself. You need
it for no less than twelve hours. Tell them a car went down into; the
sea at Soufriere and you would like to get it out. Here is $800 cash,"
Braithwaite handed the money to him. "Deposit that amount,with them.
Park the crane close to' the wall at the back of the.police headquarters
on Cork street and go away. You will return at precisely 11.30 p.m.
You'll meet me there. I'll be driving the same car but the number will
"be changed. Time is important," Braithwaite said, "any difficulty -
just ring me at the hospital. When we get there at 1U.30 I will first
enter the front of the police headquarters to ensure that everything
is on the quiet; I shall have two torches. If favourable, I will flush
the clear light if not, the red one. Stand across the roac and when
you see the clear light you will start the crane an. turn the jib ex-
actly over the police yard. I shall again make a safety cheek and if
all is well I'll walk in and cobble it on, then I'll walk out through
the dark area of the Fire Brigade Station and get back quickly to the.
car, I'll drive: round again to the front and watch things while you
pull up the Pontiac. Just be careful."
V'I got the idea, sir."
"Good," said the doctor, "just take care of the money. Cheerio," he
concluded and returned to the hospitall.
There, the nurse informed him that two calls came from the C.I.D.
asking if. Superintendent Boland had been there;. But the nurse told
them that Boland had been there earlier in the morning but left after
about an hour.

It was the 16th June, exactly three days after the crucial incidexns.
The time, too, was 11.30 p.m. The blue sedan returned. Jack was walk-
ing towards the crane casually. He gave the doctor enoughttime to walk-.
round to the front then he hopped into the crane and waited for the
signal light. Soon it came and he quickly started the-crane and tined
it as ordered, .After two minutes there was another signal and immed-
iately the able of the crane caMo down slowly. Braithwaite quickly
and safely cobbled it on to the Pontiac and returned for his ear. as
planned. But the operator began hauling it up too excitedly and f'as:
so that it fell back with a tremendous bang on reaching no more than
thirty feet up. Braithwa:.te drove back round to Cork Street before the
policemen and firemen coulS get there, but in the light they could see.

I say to you today, my friends, that in spite of the difficulties and frustra-
tions of the moment, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the '
SAmerican. dream.
I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true
meaning of-its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all
men are created equal."
I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former
slaves and the sons of former slaveowners will be able to sit down together
at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state
sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed
into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have'a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation
where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but the content of
their character.
I have a dream today.
I have a dream that one day the state of Alabama, whose governor's lips
are presently dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, will
be transformed into a situation where little black boys and girls will be
able to join hands with little white boys and white girls and walk together
as sisters and brothers.
I have a dream toddy.
I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and
mountain shall be made low. the rough places will be made plains, and the
crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be
revealed, and all flesh ih..'l sec it together. -`-"
This is our hope. This is the faith with which, I return to the South. With
this faith we will be able to hew out of the mountains of despair a stone of
hope. With this faith we will be able to transform the jangling discords of
our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood. With this faith we
will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to
- jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free
one day.
This will be-the day when all of God's children will be able to sing with
new meaning "My country 'tis of thee, sweet land of liberty, of thee I sing.
-'Land where my fathers died, land of the Pilgrim's pride, from every moun-
-"taihside, let freedom ring."
'!* And if America is to be a great nation this must become true. So let
freedom ring from the prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire. Let freedom
ring from the mighty mountains of New York. Let freedom ring from the
heightening Alleghenies of Pennsylvania.
Let freedom ring from the snow-capped Rockies of Colorado.
Let freedom ring from the curvacious peaks of Californial
But not only that: let freedom ring from Stone Mountain of Georgia!
Let freedom ring from every hill and mole hill of Mississippi. From every
mountainside, let freedom ring.
When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and
every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to.speed up
that day when all of God's children, black men and white men, Jews and
Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, wil) he able to join hands and sing in
the words,of that old Negro spiritual, "Free at last! Free at last! Thank God
almighty,- we are free at last!"

At first Whitehall justified
itself by saying that* since 'Great
Britain was the'traditional Nigerian
arms supl-er, suddenly to cease send-
ing arms would amount in itself to
discriminating against the Federal
side. This argument never held water:,
however, and probable that the
real reasons for continued arms sup-
plies were quite different.
On the one hand, the British wan-
ted to stop the Russians and other
Cormi'nist countries getting involved
and felt that if they refused to sehd
armsn the Nigerian Federal Government
would have no difficulty in ge ting
theo from sources of thi kind.
Consequently, they were performing a
service to Africa by keeping the cold
war out of at least one area of it,
Eut,. o. the other hand, there was.
also i more selfish-argument. The
Britinh had created the Iligerian
Federation and had founded their hopes
for post-colonial stability in West
Africa upon it. They were reluctant tc
see it break up, and thought that such
a disintegration might-also herald the
end of ether colonial .territorial
achievementss" as well-as running the
chances of British oil and other
coninorcial interests.
There has beel a virtually
unanimous call to stop areas deliveries
-fron Britain to Nigeria now that the
Biafrans iave proved that no easy
Federal victory is possible and that
Federal troops are about to advance
into the Ibo heartland with all the
ugly possibilities that this.entails,
But Mrs Michael Stowart, the Bri-
tish Foreig.i Secretary, rose in the
House of Colanons recently to say that
if Britain Were to stop its arms
deliveries its power to influence the
conflict in the direction-of peace
might be lessened. (cont. page 14)
