almost one might say a crusade. LA mini o f
genius, the Irish poet W.B. Yeat#, pinned
Ssuh a conjunction down in his great poem
about the &ire resistance fighters. In that
poem he starts off:

Our staff artist Al Akong has

first of t,r encouraging articles for

"I have met them at close: of day
Coming with vivid faces

and he goes on to describe the absorption
and trivialities of their everoW4 lives,
how they nod the head, exchange 'polite
meaningless words', crack a few jokes to
please a companion at the 4oub; how -
"That woman's days zere spent
In ignorant good-will
Her nights in argument
Until her voice grew still...
This man had kept a school...
This other man I had dreamed
A drunken, vainglorious lout.
He had done most bitter wrong
To some who are near my heart,
Yet I number him in the song...
He too has been changed in his turn,
Transformed utterly:
A terrible beauty is born."

THE -STAR. Saturday, July 27th, 1968


Sby Androcles
(I wish to ask readers kindly to explain and communicate. to others the
ideas contained in this and later commentaries on the useful principle
of "Each One Teach One")

The Press Release dated 4th July issued by'Government is a most re-
vealing document. 'Read, in conjunction with the draft Bill as origin-
ally appearing, the discerning will find and-deduce the whole philos-
ophy of the present regards its motives and intentions
even though this is incapable of proof in bringing forward the
undesirable Seditious and Undesirable Publications Act, It will be my
business in the course of my next few articles- to subject to close.
scrutiny and powder-fine analysis what this legislation is calculated
(the most used -term in the Press Release) to effect. I am afraid -the
Government will not like this and therefore I say to it, as Christ said
to Judas, "What thou hast in mind td do, do quickly".
LITERA SCRIPTA MANET ("The written word' stands"). The Government
must be regretting deeply that it ever allowed Section 3 (g) of the
draft Bill to appear in print.' This section reads that among seditious
intentions, one is "to advocate, teach or defend disbelief in ar oppo-
sitio4 to organised government". Had'this.. clause been allowed to go
through, any form of opposition to the Government the' formation of
a rival political party or even the advocacy of it would have been-
a crime. Any -criticism of Government by word of mouth, in a letter,
in a publication would have been unlawful. It is doubtful whether
the:Parliamentary Opposition ("Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition") cold
have continued. to be possible, since its essential role is to offer
opposition to the Government, -which, as it happens, is an organised
one. That this clause was hastily withdrawn offers no explanation to
the fundamental question: how did it ever get into the mind and heart
of the Government, how did it ever conceive the idea of introducing a
clause so damaging to. democratic freedom.? This point is so important
that I cannot risk its not being fully understood by every..literate
person and so I give a homely example to illustrate what I mean,
Suppose your-best friend wrote to you and in part of the letter which
he crossed out after writing but which, held up to the light, you could
still make .out the words: "I consider you a rascal and a fool". The fact
that having written this sentence, even though he crossed it out later,-
is enough to ,shake your faith in this friend.- You ask yourself: "How
did my friend ever come to hold, even for a second, such an opinion
about me? Surely,: his friendship is not genuine". And you would- be
right. Almost certainly this would be the beginning of the end of what,
up to then, was a beautiful friendship. Similarly with the case in
OF THIS. It is not enough to reply to the organised protest that its
recommended deletion of this clause has been effected. One still must
ask: what inspired, what was behind this provision as originally app-
Closely related to.,this is the other question: why, in a matter so
frightfully important to the. freedoms of the people and, as subsequent.
.events have abundantly shown, so controversial in nature, was it so
suddenly sprung upon the populace? The draft Bill is dated 6th June
in the Attorney General's Chambers, it reaches the public as an enclo-
sure to the Official Gazette on .or about 3rd July and it is set down
for -passage into law on' 5th July. What time was therefore allowed for
public discussion of the proposed all-important law?

AN\DROCLES (cont.) While it is impossible to know what were the Gov-
ernment's motives and intentions it'so acting, it must be deemed to
intend the consequences which would naturally follow from its denial aof
reasonable time for public discussionix;of a law which deprives the pub-
lic-of qne of its cherished and accustomed fundamental freedoms. It is
therefore thanks to the vigilance of a group of citizens that the draft
Bill was quickly brought to effective public notice before it' was turned
I come now to what seems a cross between a mystery and an absurdity.
The Act makes it an offence, a 'seditious intention,' "by means ofcf3lse
statement or wilful misrepresentation. of facts or of the motives .or in-
tentions of Government ....... or Minister of Government to excite-
dislike of or discontent with ,the Government......." Apart from the
fact that to make a change. of Government in the normal democratic pro-
cess there must be discontent with and dislike of. the existing one,
there is enough confusion of thought in the few lines quoted to fill a
whole volume.
It is not.particularly difficult to establish a statement as being
false; it is much more difficult :to- prove that a misrepresentation of
facts is wilful as distinct from 'erroneous or inadvertnt.- 'but' whoever
in the world can penetrate those milli.;:ters (thicker, of course, 'in
some cases we know of') of skull to find out what are the motive. or
intentions at play in any given situation? It:-seems to me to be a turn-
ing of back upon reality to -expect anyone to be able-to represent or
misrepresent, for juridical purposes, the motives and-intentions of
another person and, more difficult still, those of an impersonal Gov-
ernment. I imagine that only under hypnosis and psychoanalysis can a
skilled specialist come anywhere near the motives and intentions of
another person and even so this can only come through words expressed
by the subject/patient. A science of being able to do the same with
a Government seems an impossibility. Yet the law as passed makes it a "
serious crime not to be able to make one'sa statements correspond with
what exists in another person's, and still worse, in a Government's
mind. In other words, criminality is being.based upon thought processes;
we are being brought into the realm of the inscrutable, the unknown,
of un-persons and un-facts. Shakespeare has something to say about this:-
"What 'a -pieace of work is man! How 'noble in reason' how infinite
in faculty" in form, in moving,- how express and admirable' in
action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god!" (Hamlet)
Yes, in apprehension how like a .god' But a court is being invited to
adjucate on the basis of whether what I'say corresponds'with what you
have in your mind. It is as simple as that. and lest the matter should
grow too simple, we can introduce the compli:dating factor that as things
are, the only way in which to find out whether what I .say corresponds
with what you have in mind is for you to say that you have in your mind.*
But what you say as 'being in your mind is subject to wilful misrepres-
entation by you, so that what I say you have in mind may have been per-
fectly correct but, from what you now aver, is also'perfectly incorrect.
To make the point clear, allow me to give an illustration. Suppose with
the approach of the next General Election, if there is another, Govern-
ment were to start putting down a number of projects and amenities -
water supply, gcod roads, improved housing etc. in say, the Pointe
Michel-Soufriere-Scott's Head area. The most impartial among us could
reflect that this was strange and come to the conclusion that the Gov-
ernment was courting the vo-;es of that area a perfectly reasonable
conclusion. If however, he said so, or wrote so, he could well find
himself in deep trouble.

Short Story THE RIVER FLOWS ON by Alwin A. Bully

No one know the source of the river, but it started conmwhore high up inU
the mountains and it wended ite way towards the east 60ast of the island pau-
sing to form three massive pools in the small Carib Reservo before finally
reaching the sea. The Caribs used the river for everything. They drank its
water and used it. for their-Gcooking, they bathed in it and above all, they
used it for washing.
Lilian for one would naror let a Monday pass without gathering all the
dirty clothes, wrapping then into tight little bundlsa and balancing the packed
basin of clothes on her head as she madq her way to the river. Sho was taller
than most'-.of2 the other Carib womeo'.although she was only nineteen, and she was
by fCAr slimmer. Her face was more long than round as was not generally the
case,, and her dead straight black hair cascaded to hoi" waist contrasting -
beautifully with her parchment coloured skin. "Ehbeh, rai un belle fille",' the
old men would say as'she passed. on her way to the river; "Cwayib belle, oui "
others would join in, and they would all nod their heads' soloLmLyand earnestly
wish thatthey wore forty years younger.
But suddenly a change had cone over Lilian. She would no longer go for
moon-light walks with the others and at the biver she would do all her washing,
alone with her thoughts, in a little corner of the pool while the other wooen
laughed and chattered noisily a few yards away.
It was not her fault. Lilian had much to think about those days. You
seeo she was'in love...asho had taken quite a long tine to convince herself
that she was, but now she was sure. B4t her real problem was who her lover
was. He was a Negro, and it was an unwritten law of her people that no Carib
wonam-could have a Negro aiin.
She had first soon hin at lMarigot, a nearby village,, while she was on her
way fc Roseatu one Saturday morning. He had come round the truck looking at
the vogotablie that the Caribs were taking tho market; suddenly, his eyes loft
a bundle of dashoeens, lodged deep into her own and he seonemeod to be dazed for a
_few minutes. She did not s0e him agtih until two weeooks later when he oane up
to the Reserve on a jeop marked, "Division of Agriculture". He seemed Cur-
priso&to see Lilian there but lost no time and quickly began to speak to hor.
It had all started that way.
She found out that his nano was Sid and that he worked for the Division -
of Agriculture in Roseau, but he was stationed in Iarigot for the next six
nontlhs, Soon, theyfwere nreet4ng regularly. She would have' dinner early and
ask hor'closest friend to come and look aftor the children for her while she
was out. Then she would run down to the smallest pool of the river, which was
close ~o the Main road, and there would be Sid waiting for her. He would use
the Government jeep to got thee and they would pond the evening together.
Now she know that she was pregnant. Oh God, how was she going to tell
thom? She listened to the uonon chattering loudly. Uhat was she going to "o?
She looked round and saw Ira's white tooth glistening against her black skin.
She was the wife of Cor, the Chiof's brother. Why could the mon have Negro
wives but the women not hmavo Negro husbands? After all Sid was not even as
dark as Ira, he was almost as fair as Lilian horsOlf; just that his hair was
rough. She would have to speak to the. Chief, She would have to tell him. Ho
ould: 'understand. She would tell him all that Sid had said, and what he plan
no to do. Everything would b alright a etere the Chi
storio. house, the bright light of his gas lamps dazzling her sensitive eyes
at first. The Chief ws just finishing his supper. An tey bgan tal
l'Qomo in, come in,% Lilian." He spoke in patois, And tiey beg-an talking
_all ot the usual topics about her family and the weather. Then she said
suddonys, "Chief, there is a boy I love."
"True?|3" ho exclaia d and broke into a fit of high pitched laughter his
oyes turning into to watery little black slitsa
She waited for him to stop laughing, rerainn as serious as a rai.n
Then she said, "lHe is a Negro."

"Npi" the Chief said louder and she thought she caw some violence appear
in his eyes- she trembled ca little, but she continued without pausing, speak-
ing quickly:
"He wants to t4rry noe Chief, and take no to live with hin in Roseau.
But I told him about nf. six little brothers and sisters and how Mana and Papy
are' dead and Itm the only one who can help then now. Then he said that he
would come and live here and he would show our people how to work the land to
na'oz it give noro food e1o said that he would organize the men into working
toeas and show thde now ways to plant. And I would be his wife."
The tears were stroaring down her face. The Chief was looking at her
intontly, his face stern and hard. There was silonco for about five minutes
as sho looked at him, waiting for him to speak, but ho. just looked at her and
thought and thought.. Then he looked away and said, "I'll have to call the
elders together to discuss it.. They will cone hero tomorrow night and I will
toe.l you -their decision, the day after."
The next night she mot Sid by the river. They woro both very quiet and
just sat on the bank listening to the river babbling nAd laughing, as if it
wero laughing at then and their dreadis. Then she said, "They discussing it
"Who?" ..

And besides, it would be a wasto if you would marry oho of those non. You are
one of the few who can road and you can speak English almost good as me. They
nust let no come, nan."
Those words comforted her a little and when thoy parted her heart was
lighter, Sid said that he would cone up the next afternoon and he would see
her land and plan where they would build a little house; he would also noot
the elders and explain further his plans for the land. But all along the way.

"Know him?" Chief Baxton asked quickly.
"NO sir, but he's wearing a black sweater and black trousers."
"Has he seen you?"
"No, Chief,."
"Good, don't get too close. He might be armed. Over."
"4119's now at the side of the house. He's moving slowly to the back
of the house."
Chief Baxton kept the key down for several minutes but nothing. mire
came over the walkie-talkie; then:
"Chief! Thompson here; we got him he now has a .Police Special
gun and wn't say anything except 'put me on to the Cnief.' Over."
"Put him on," said Baxton.
"Chief, this is 612 here; Bolard put me on late shift on the Webbu.
Tell these clots to give me back my gun. and leave me alone. Orer."
Baxton exploded with laughter into the mike, nearly breaking Thompson's
ear drums. "O.K. men, better get back on watching the house and tell
612 to come up to H.o( and start; looking for Boland; and.apologise to
612 before he leaves"

Whilst waiting for the return of 612, Chief Baxton was visited by a
man who walked into his office and told him that he xts the brother of
Herman Russell, the murdered Bank Manager, -anid that his brother was
killed nearly a week now and the police were, etill sitting down on their
backside doing nothing about it. He threatened that if the police did
not find his brother's killer within the next 48 hours he would' be forced
to rQsort to the employment of some strong believer of Black Art. Then
an S.R. man came in with an empty lady's purse he had found in the bushes
a quarter of a mile from the wrecked car.
"This purse, Mr Russell," the chief said, "speaks for itself. The
trouble is we are making an effort to keep down newspaper publicity as
much as we can because of the very unusual circumstances surrounding
your brother's murder; for that reason I have put only Special Reserve '
Investigators on the job."
The investigator said that the purse was lying open when he found it.
The Chief pointed to several labelled exhibits on a larga table and told
the stranger that those items were picked up by his men in four days.
They consisted of a pair of gent's white crepe-soled shoes, a wallet,
a cut-.throat razor, empty rum glasses. abd bottles, a.ballpoint pen,
three tightly-packed suitcases and a cheque book belonging to Herman
After the Chief had convinced him that he was leaving no stone un-
turned, Russell remarked "You better do, sir," put on his hat and said
goodbye politely, in a manner so that one would mistake him for a gov-

It was a week oince the murder and things were still a bit, obscure
to the police. Superintendent. Boland was still in a coma in the female
surgical ward after the. inject ion of klopobenedine. The sheet covered
him from head to tce exposing only his face which looked soft like a
vm'an s. The r.hart t the; foot of the, bed was headed "Joan David,. 45,

was' sitting by Lulu's bed with his. stethoscope in his hand.. They were
discussing whet to do about Boland.
