C COMMENTS ON TH E PREMI EI'S S P E Ei C H
We mean, of course, the speech before last the cno at Fort-mouth and not the
address given at this week's Local Government Seminar ope iiBg, which -eo were unable to
attend. We played back that earlier speech twice to see rhother we had been unjust in
calling it 'peevish'. But no, the c(nemmnt was fair: he sounded peevish ard vexed.
We have never cared for the attitude "Government has mate iail at its disposal which
is not available to other people", and recall slain a Jtritish Labour M.P. during
wartime for saying much the same thing, as a cover-up for some little ineptitude in
local affairs: we were strongly supported by a democratic crowd. Tle M,i. was Dr.Bd: ,tt
Summerskill, who took it in good part. So telling us thtit owing to. these unknown

A lATER FRUM MR. N.C. LOBLACK

--ar Madam,
Our Lord says it is more blessed to|
;ive than to receive. Now Madam there are two
tpes of Labour in this world. One is to get
ind give, the other one is to get and not to
,tive. Thus, the employers (the rich) such as
,3'antero, merchants etc., labour to get, and
afterr they get they employ people and give.
The othor type is like a Premier and Miaisters
who do not give (as far as I know).
M adam, Mr. LeBlanc and his Ministers are
t-ling the people of Dominica that they are
t .c only ones who are making those same people
ge t roads throughout the Island. Pernmi, me a
little space in your columns t. inform the
aelt-r public how Dominica is getting aid for
Il kinds of projects.
In 1945, after the war, the British
Gt wernment gave out 125 million for divel-
opsent of the colonies, 1 million and fB0
million through C.D. & W., C. D, C8. t rd
O. t. C. Dominica, as a member of the Irit-
i4b %Ci-mionwealth, had her quota from this sum
of ,moey. You also may remember, Madam, that
i. I'8 when I met you in England what
har yned between you, myself and the lae Mr.
Dasvid Jones M.P. (TUC). At that time LeoJ!anc


and his Ministers were unheard- of;-'yet
more questions were asked in the House
of Commons about Dominica and her needs
then than about any other (and larger)
Commonwealth country. Incidentally,
this kind of aid which we so strongly
recommended is still continuing.
So when LeBlanc gets this money he
must-fix the roads etc., otherwise ques-
tions can still be asked by the British
Government.
In conclusion, I would like to say
that it is better for LeBlanc and his
Ministers to go down on their knees and
- thank God that you, Madam, and myself
formed that Labour Party which caused
them to get their unexpected good for-
tune, coming even today through the one
hour 10 min. that you, Mr. D. Jones MP
and I spent at the then Colonial Office
pointing out the whole condition of our
country Dominica, and leaving with the
full assurance that Dominica. would be
looked after. Better they give thanks
to God for what they now enjoy than to
make a Seditious Bill to hush our mouths
and suppress our liberty. Yours truly,
Z.C. LOBIACK, Roseau.

THE SEDITIOUS AID UJIDESISRABLE PUBLICATIONS ACT 1.968 COMMENTARY No,5.
By Androclos .
I an rearing to cone to the rather impertinent Government Press Release of
4h11 July attempting to justify the Act, but there still eoniains to be discussed
a Section of the Act which- the Government will, no doubt, try to exploit as
indicating that reasonable freedom of expression has boon provided for in that
1law.
Ytt is, however, essential to state immediately that this provision was not
originally intended by Government. It was not in the draft Bill but was, in
fact, incorporated at the instance of that group of organizations which made
representations to Governlnet as soon as the existence of the draft Bill had
bconoe known. Thus it was, not part of the proposals as conceived by Government
but a concession made under spur of public pressure. This point must be well
noted as you read that Section of the law.
In this connection it is appropriate to make reference to a line of defence
which the Governnent is taking up. This is ,to the effect that it had already
accopted at the tine of the passage .of the Bill all the reasonable suggestions
which the citizens' group had put forward and therefore there was no point in
withholding passage of the law on 5th July,
It is quite true that sone of the suggestions had at that tine boon accepted.
But it is equally true that others, on which there is still strong feeling, had
not been accepted* That elusive and indefinable "motives and intentions" of
Government, the non-correspondence with which in cormnenting lays one open to a
chargM of sedition, has. not boon accepted for deletion and still remains part
of the law.
But the nain argument why the representative group led objection to the
Government's rushing of the Bill into law in utter Cusregard of the personal
representation of thousands of citizens was because, apart from the obvious
laokh and dangers of the draft Bill, it was felt that no6e time. was needed to
discover other less apparent, though not less dangerous., provisions in the
draft'law. If so much had been discovered in the short period of study of the
draft, it was felt that much more would be found u'der conditions of more
leisurely examination. It was argued that two dQys public notice did not allow
tine for nature consideration of a. law which, it is known, had been for months
under discussion and study by the Governmant. Forty-eight hours notice was not
fair to a public not organized for such an exercise. As it is, the hasty
organization and coning together in defense of froodom which took place within
this short tine reflects much credit on all those concerned. -
One speaker at a recent public meeting asked the rhetorical question: how is
it that a'law, deferment of the passage o. which was asked for one week but
refused, has been in existence now for si-: weeks and no stops have been. taken
against anyone under its .provisions, while denunciatory public content ina
speech and writing continues Inabated, in !act, intensified? It would b' nost
interesting to know the answer to this. I an tempted to ref6r here to the
historical precedent of "singeingthe King of Spain's board", but our literal-
mindod--Premoier would no doubt conclude that I have hirsutal designs against hi13n
person -
So the Section to which attention is drawn today roads as follows:'
"3.--(2). But an act, speech, or publication is not seditious ty reason
only that it intends to show that Her Majesty, or this or'any Govern-
nent has been nisled or mistaken i;n her or their measures, or to poilzb
out errors or defccts'in the Governnent or Constitution of the State
as by law established, or in legi.slation'or in the administration of.
justice with a view to their reformation, or to persuade Her Majesty" s
subjects to attempt by lawful means the alteration of any mnattc't in .
the State as by law established, or to point out, with a view to the i-
renoval by lawful nmans, matters which are producing, or hae a
tendency to produce, feelings of hatred and ill-will between dif'fer_-a~
classes or races of Her Majesty't subjects."
-Note in passing the word "speech". Thf.s gives the lio to. the ass.etion of'
tho originators of the law that it is neat for the "big mno". writing against
tho Government, those whon the Government Release refers to as skilfu-l

(Readers must be reminded that the names of persons used in this story are
wholly fictitious and do not pertain to anyone dead or living.)
There was a pause as if Murphy had been working up a plan, then he said,
"Now listen Brownie; can you hear me well?"
"Very well, Sir. Over."
"Good. Stick to your post. You are the only reserve out on this shift. Keep
your eyes open and your car entirely out of sight. The patient that the ambu-
lance took there is Lulu. She's quite well. $he'll soon be back out. Did you
recognize any of the men?"
"No, sir. The area here is in utter darkness", said the reserve and as he
paused to adjust his gun there was a further interruption, "Hold on a minute
please.....the front door has just opened.....somebody has come out......It's
a woman.....,I cannot see her well, but she'll soon pass near the park light
of the ambulance.......There she is, sir. It's really Lulu.....she hopped in
behind.....the ambulance is now turning ....... It took off for Roseau. Over."
Murphy quickly replied. "Tail it. I,11 join you at the New Filling Station
at Newtown. Over."
The ambulance came down the street at normal speed, then turned right onto
South Chiltern Road, thus puzzling the reserve to an extent that he had to
contact Murphy again, quickly.
"Come in, please Murphy. Come in please. Over."
"Go on, Brownie. I'm still in contact with you. Over."
"The ambulance has turned across to the South Chiltern Road. Over."
"Okay, Brownie. I might not be able to catch up with you right away, so get
ahead of them and stall your engine in the middle of the road. Turn the ignit-
ion switch off and try pretending to start. Just keep it like that giving me
sufficient time to catch up."
The reserve soon passed the ambulance and pulled up in the middle of the
road. A couple of minutes afterwards the ambulance stopped about twenty feet
behind, and the driver pushed his head through.the window shouting, "You re
blocking traffic, mister. I'm in a tearing hurry." He sounded somewhat rather
excited.
"One second, friend", the reserve replied. He got out of the car apd lifted
the bonnet, "It might be some wire disconnection just a second please."
There was a pause and after that the reserve said, "Okay, I think I got it
now." He went back into the car, repeated the same starting tricks and soon t1,
lights of a moving vehicle were seen approaching. It was Murphy. He pulled up
behind the ambulance, sounded his horn and yelled, "Why the hell you fellows
don't get out the damn road. You can push the car out the road."
Brownie paid no attention to his insults. Then Murphy switched off his
lights and came out with a lighted torch in his hand, "I'm a diesel mechanic.
I might be able to help you quickly..... where are you going?"
Brownie quickly replied, "Not too far again -. going to collect a stranded
road gang."
"Okay. Lift your bonnet please and get back inside and kick your starter."
Brownie went in and kicked once but it did not make contact. There was
a pause. Murphy fingers down into the engine. rhe S.R. kicked again then
the engine blasted.
"What was the trouble?" shouted Brownie.
"Distributioa failure.' Murphy replied loud enough for the occupants of
the ambulance t3 hear. Then he said confidently, "Your points need changing.
Anyway carry on out let the ambulance go first. Someone might be gravely ill."
The route to south Chiltern was a narrow, pretty one but desolate looking
at night. In sons areas the low bushes which partly hang across the rocky
road formed a s>"t of black darknessenthe grassy verges,which eventually
worsened after "ie first three miles. On the right was a narrow track which

Short Story MOUNTAIN DEW by Loennox Honychurch
In the heights of Babico Valley there is a small cloaring, White floating
mist constantly plays between the lofty trees that boarder the spot. Here stand
Two shingled houses, the home and working place of Sogri, No one knows his real
nanom in fact hardly anyone knew him at all. He looked as'if he had been there
fr'm the beginning of tine. For as long as I can remember, which is a very long
time, Sogri had had yollowy grey hair and thin features. His large hands still
load his ageing ox around the squeaking mill. The mill. That. was his"secret.
When as a young man he had first started to grind cano in his 'noulin', he had
had nany other companions all about the valley. A majority of then had been
caught however, others found the pressure of secrocy'too great and had given
up. Woods had taken over their valuable enterprises, the huge iron teaches had
become the hone of a million mosquitoes. The rollers rusted in the tropical
mud and the 'stills' had been plagued by rot and wood ants.
Segri was the last of'them. He believed that each nan was born with an art
of'doing something. Run,, he had decided, wts his art. Not only the making of
it, but also the transportation of it. Adnittably it was quite an art to get
the run to market without the police knowing. Every weeok for seventy years he
had got his produce sbld without being caught. This Saturday in particular was
a very special one, by working late and with the added help of his only
labourer: the old ox, he had been able to make two donijouhns of mountainn dew',
instead of one as he usually got.
Carefully he oiled the largo dark rollers that had brought him so nuch pros-
perity in recent years. Slowly he tottered through the silent shed that was
his Tstill'. There, glistening in the crisp morning light, were the two dcni-
johns of runm Lovingly he looked at them. The mellow sooent. of alcohol still
hung in the air; it was singled with that of bay oil. Sogri's eyes followed
the sent, there, bobbing up and down in a basin full of bay-oil were the two
corks for the demijohns. This was his art. For the past throe days the corks
had been soaking in the oil, now he would put then on. If he was asked any-
thing by authorities on the way he would morely tell' thori that he was taking
oil to sell, then if he was doubted he would give than the corks to smell.
That, he believed would assure then. Each weeoo he had taken a different pro-
caution and when he was questioned, which was very seldom,, he had always got
away.
Now he placed the containers on his donkey and began his long walk down the
narrow path to the main road. The path was thin and wound down the hill through
the thick and misty virgin forest. Carefully he guided his donkey through the
fields of bananas on the lower slopes. Here the track had been used nore and
it was easier going, Soon he cane to the first few houses of Blanc, the vil-
lago where he was going to menoot the truck which would take hin itto town.
Everyone smiled as the old nan placed the two denijohns onto the truck and Ait
runbled off down the pot-hbled road to town. The bu ping truck floated gaily
around the narrow hairpin bonds, depending only on luck for its survival. In
the valley bottom the truck whisked over the silver flashing rivers and was
very soon nearing the town. It was at this stage that Scgri always began to
got nervous and by the time he 'stepped off the truck he was nearly shaking all
over. Nervously looking about, Segri took the two donijohl-s off and holding
9no in each hand he made his way to the market. His eyes darteo around as he
wovo between the crowds of bargaining people* Now and again he would hide be-
hind d fat squatting lady as he saw someone suspicious paas by. Slowly he
made his way to the corner of the market where he was sure to find customers.
Suddenly Sogri stiffened. There, strolling in betwoon the babbling crowd,
was a police officer. He was in a khaki uniform dotted with sliny buttons
which glistened like sequins in the bright morning sun. Ho looked like an
Englishman and a very important one at that. The police officer paced
leisurely through the axrkot looking extremely interested at everything around
hin Segri's intorost w1a "however to get to the corner of the market where he
saw' his usual client, Enanuel, standing just as petrified as himself and won-
doring what would happen noXt. Finally Segri decided to take th risk of
walokig past, He consoled hinsolf by thinking that ovon though he did got
caurotj_-he woald be leaving the world so soon that he would not hve to serve








his full sentence. Step by step Segri crossed the market, carefully he avoided
the hcap of dashines and tanias that lay on the ground; every so often ho
would- nake a suspicious sidelong glance in the direction of the police offinerx,
Enancul could not stand it, ho hid his head in despair behind a basket of
rather gotten oranges and waited for 'comotion. Sogri was now in line with the
officer, a few moro steps and he would be free, 'Foot by foot he crawled past,
soon he would be handing the r-un over to Enanuel, he sighed and smiled in the
direction of his client who to his surprise was still groaning behind the bas-

Segrri walked on. All of a sudden Enanuol began to fling his hands in the
air in a vain effort to contact Soegri. Then there wras the sound of iron-solod
boots- behind hin, to Segri the din of the crying vendors rose and instantly be-
gan' t:o pierce his ears. The red and yellow colours of the post office spun be-
fore 'his eyes and was nired with those of the bright' narkotto form a picture of
uzto0 confusion. The now scroaching female voices thundered in his ears and
abovq it all there was the weight of a heavy sweating hand on his shoulder
accoifpanied by the sound of a politely accented "Good morning".. To Sogri the
world had ended. Slowly he turned around to find himself staring at a s-iling
pink-faced police 'officer.
"Good morning", the officer repeated,. in case Soeri had not heard, Terrified
Sogri felt that he should find something to say. What hoe said however was both
unnecessary and almost fatal. Spluttering and mnmbling,, he uneasily -found words
to say.
"Morning officer,*...er. .Un...Morning Sir* Is only a little thing I have
hero you know, nothing much, is only Bay oil. You know Bay oil?"
"Bay oil? No I dont think so. You see I an only hero for an oxtreerly short
period so I an trying to catch up with a little West Indian geography today". 1
1he last few words he said with a splutter of subdued chuckles.1" And what nay
I ask aro in those two containers?"
"Oh" stumbled Sogri again "Dat is'de Bay oil I was talking about. But Sir.,"
again Segri broke off "Sir I beg you, look at ne, look how old I is, is only a
little, living I making'for myself".
"Wow now, caln down, I have noroly asked you to e:xplain Bay oil and you
break downn' Of course I realise that you are an old nan, but I hope that those
breakdowns are not froquont. what about seeing a specialist about jlt?"
"W-oll Sir if it is Boy oil you want ne to tell you about you talking to the
r-ight man. First of all you start off with the trees....." The geography
lesson lasted for one long foarfull half hour, Sonot3inieOs o6"ri got the process
ixead up with rum; at other stages ho had to'gently proveat the inquisitive
officer from inspecting the oil more closely, the intoxicating fragrance of
which was catching the suspicious attention of all those- surrounding the scone
0o:eMt of course the innocent officer. It was only at last;, after what sooeemed
ages that he concluded his interview with:
"Joll I must adnit that I have had a most educational morning With you. WS
all live and learn don't wel" With that and one or two 6ther last "'alutations'
the officer turned and waddled slowly out of the nark'et.
Only when Segri saw the back of the officer as he passed through markQt gate
did he fool relaxed'. Enmanuel rose both astonished and smilUng frop his hiding

could hear the detective turn off the engine and,were satisfied that they were
experiencing a second breakdown. The two lawmen abandoned their cars and took
off for the bushes. Clearing back the low trees quietly with their hands and
moving on cautiously, they finally reached near the spot where the ambulance
had parked. They could hear a woman 's voice as she stepped down from it. The
man in pyjamas was holding the suitcase but the woman walked in front of him
empty-handed and soon entered the ranch through a back entrance. It seemed
that the ambulance had only allowed them enough time to get into the ranch for
immediately they entered it turned andpulled out, leaving her with the so-
called caterpillar operator who (it was alleged) had slit Manswell's throat
with a razor and packed his body into the trunk of a car the'day Herman Russell
was killed. This was the man whom Lulu was now facing in this sequestered for-
est with fifteen thousand dollars in cash sleeping like a doll amidst the soft
clothing in her suitcase. It was Lulu whom he had kissed over a thousand times
in a night for several years whom he had slept and wokeiup with those bare
stiff, sweet breasts he had once treated with marked civility but now had for
them only disdain.
"Let me have the key." tie demanded and stretched out his hand. The suitcase
was resting on a bench made of round-wood, his torch shining on it.
"The key?" Lulu repeated,"what for?"
"The money."
"I aint have the money."
Jack wasted no time. He pulled out a switch-blade from his side pocket and
ripped the cover of the suitcase wide enough so that both his hands could tear
it open; then he started ransacking the clothes in it and soon brought out from
the bottom the parcel of money.
"This money, dear", he said, "will be shared fifty-fifty with Dr. Brathwaite.'
The lawmen in hiding listened patiently as he went on, "but you'll be out of it.
He did not hire me in this case, but I have still to pay him to keep his mouth
shut."
But did Lulu understand this puzzle? Did she dream of what was now to befall
her? No. She could not the time for dreaming was too short, and however short
it was, it was spent only in thinking of their forthcoming marriage.
"But but but" she stammered in fear, "you signed agreement to marry me,
darling. We can be happy together with the money."
"Yes, honey", Jack replied. "I did sign an agreement to marry you, but
things have since changed there 'aint going to be nothing like that,.... Just
a while before the ambulance came up I was already counting your stars in
heaven for you." He was looking her .-traight in the eye, "You see, Lulu, I do
love you, but because of the fact that you know that I killed Manswell, one
day Lulu, that will leak out to the police, from your own lips. That s what
you get-from a woman in a home quarrel, and I know Lulu, you are the quarrel-
some type. And one day, despite your part of it, I know you certainly will
expose me. I want to be free darling. You got to set me free."
The tears Which streamed down her cheeks were an extreme way of proving
sincerity to this man; well Lulu might just as well have taken a bucket of
fresh water from the Ros'eau riverani begun pouring it on her head. Because
one thing for sure is, although Jack was of quite a cool and polite tempera-
ment, when the angry'blood got into his. head he was the most ruth-_ess speci-
men- of human being. And he had been angry from the day Brathwaite had managed
to wheedle him into the signing of the Marriage Agreement. From tiat time too
he had been planning some safe, possibly illegal method of getting out of this
marriage trap.
When Lulu had got the orders from Brathwaite to travel immediately to South
Chiltern she had thought it best first to notify her lover Jack Bernard, who
had her remain with him overnight at his Club's private room in Liing Lane.
It was from there the ambulance had picked her up the following night. He had
convinced her that he would contact the doctor so that the man in pyjamas
would be so informed' But unfortunately the mnann pyjamas had wa.i;ed in vain
that night, and whatever the doctor s plans had been it was now a total sabo-
tage. She had almost fainted at the ranch when she noticed it was Jack who had
flicked on the torch light. Lulu's sobbing ended abruptly. After a while she
said, "Jack how long does it take a man to know when someone really loves him?"

And also note something quite interesting here. You aro allowed to plead in
defenoo that your "seditious" act was connmitted because your only Wish was to
show :tht Governomnt was mistaken in its measures. Clearly, this implied
invitation to examine the "motives and intentions" of Governnent also has the
implication that to find a Government mistaken in its measures you na'lSt assume
that it intended or desired something other than what has eventuated"' Now
supnqse that in the course of this examination and arising out of this permitted
tight rope-walking exercise you cone up with the "wrong11 motive or. intention of
Government, how can you be saved from the consequences of that Section of the
law which talks of "wilful misrepresentation of the notives and intentions of
GovolWnont" ?

it seditious to excite "dislike of or discontentment cwith...the Governnent...

consideration again nakes reference to "this or any G6vernment". Thus you see
that, in a law .which we are told is brought up to date, our- Governnment- has
deliberately set out to punish in Doninica ($2400 fin6 or six months
imprisonnent or both fine and imprisonnent) anyone who, taking note of events
like those taking place in Rhodesia against the black people of that'wretched
country, excites and advocates dislike of, discontent with and finally over-
throw of such repressive rogines.., Why does the -Government of Doninica wish' by
law to'protect a repressive regime- abroad is a question for which we are
waiting for an answer.
The sun total of all that the Press of Doninica has boon writing about the
.Governnont these past several months has had the sole object of showing that
the Governnont has boon mistaken in large numbers of its policy neaosures. This
has been done by pointing out numerous instances of SS committed and the
Press has tried to show -that such defects in Government-adninistratipi, e.a..

All the underlined words and phrases in the inaediately foregoing paragraph
are taken from the Section of the law under consideration. It is true that
Government had not intended to have such a Section in the law and it only cane
as a.result of public .representation. Still, there it is and therefore it is
gross impertinence for the draftsman of the Government Press Release of tho 4-t

LULU (Conclusion)
Jack did not, answer so his silence
caused her nore frantic sobbing, But
he couldn't stand that rnuh longer. He
got closer to her and she, still in
tears, rested her head agCinst his
chest. The knife was still in his
right hand when he brought up his loft
to her shoulder, said, "I know how you
foel baby, but naybe wo can try to noend
things up." .His hands reached round
her as if hold boon cuddling a baby
then he sigrested, "Maybe we can start
it with a kiss."
Lulu tried to got loose. of his
clinch but his strong arifs held her
Ughter whilst he begged, "Only once -
just once." ..
"No. I'can't| I canrlt4'
"Please. sweetie-pio, just once."
Being subdued by his roriantic
passion she lifted her lips to his. It
was a real long one; as if they had
never kissed befdre or as if she had
sensed it was Going to be the last one,
As the knife cane up slowly behind her
back, the resplendent lights of an
approaching vehicle reflected into the
ranch and the lawmen noticed..the
shining switch blade in Jackts hand.
They rushed out. Jack tried to hasten
the job but a shot rang out front the
car which had now pulled up a little
off the ranch. It wai Detective

to conpleto the job and seeing that he

towards his stomach. but Bolandis shot
had caught his wrist and the knife fell

.EDUCATION IN BRITAIN: A sharp rise
in the number of inni,;rant children is
reported in primary schools-180,000;
2% of Britain's school population. *


The-recent murder of four foreign
journalists by. the Viet-cong in Saigon
has concentrated public attention on
the fact that in nany crisis areas of
the world those -trade of journalist in -a
dangerous one, Journalists are often
unarmed, and yet their missions fre-
quently send then into areas where arms
are essential for personal protection.
Generalised arming of journalists
hardly seeoos to be the answer; and the
only other possibility is the old m Mid
only slightly efficacious one of the.
international convention. No doubt the
people who kill journalists on the job
are in fact the sort of people' who
bother little about international law,
in any case but in spite of this a
widely-ratified international
convention would be better protection
than nothing.
This at any rate was the conclusion
reached by the International Fedorationr
of Editors-in-Chief at their nost
recent world congress in Italy. A
Convention designed to protect
journalists on duty is to be subiitted'
to the United Nations General Asseobly
this autunn and it is hoped that it
will be fully in force within the next
two years. As with all such
initiatives, the moero publicity given
to the now Convention throughout the
world, the nore chances it will have of
being effective. In spite of assurances
to the contrary front lawyers, ignorance
is so often used'as an excuse.

development where every Civil Servant' I
would be eager and anxious to join it,
Mr.. Robin pointed out h6w sad it was,
that Civil Servants had, generally
speaklingJ not cultivated a desire for
unity in formulating progressive and
workable ideas.
Continuing., Mr. Robin sp.oko, of the
cordial relations between Government
and the Association and was .confident
that with better understanding in the
future, particularly by thoso who join
negotiations on behalf of Managoment,
the time would come when both sides
would be able to settle their dif-
ferences with the least possible delay,
bearing in mind the undesirable length
of tine now taken to process Associa-
tion matters and to arrive at deci-
sions.
Before talking his seat and calling on
nonbors to give their l1adorship the
strength that it needed, Mr. Robin re-
vealod the Association's prolixainary
plan towards procuring.a property of
its. own.
His address procedod the Exocutive
Connittoe's Report in which mention was
mado of the frustrating efforts on the
part'of the Association to settle
grievances which arise within the serv-
ic0, and the awaited response from Gov-
ornnont on their 10-nonth-old proposal
regarding retireonent after 25 years
service or upon reaching ago 45. Also
nontioned in this report was the-
nomorandum appealing for an inquiry in-
-bo the "Organisation and Functioning of
the Public Service" with a viev. to
resolving some of the persistent causes
for complaint and dissatisfaction.
The agenda for the meeting also took,
in an address by Association Secretary
C.A. Savarin. In this, he pointed out
nost forcefully that the Association ox
any other Union was a partner in
production, not an organisation set up
to interfere with the process of man-
agonent, but an assistant, anxious to
soe improvement in the efficiency of
the onployooees nand an increase in the
work output of those oeployod.. Mr,'
Savarin'added "The Union's interest$
however, does not 6top at production of
goods and services, it goes on beyond
that, to the welfare of those people,
toco human beings, who are responsible
for producing, those goods and providing
those Services".
-LMr. Savarin also spoke of the need
for training of Civil Servants for
improvement in their efficiency and


bhat with the oponing'of the now Gov-
ernmont Block- Officos; the shabby
accommodations provided as work plaeo
for nost officers would be .replaced by
an environment more conducive to '
conscientious work. He also .exprssed
the hope that officers who, by the na-
ture of their work, cannot be housed in.
the new Offices', would-be provided with,
better acconodation.
The addresses -wore followed by
discussions and queries on various, :seq.-
tions of the Treasurer s Statement their.
adoption of which was deferred l ding
certain required corrections. -
In clectiona which followed, Mr.Robin
was re-elected President, Mr.Jaoi.Royer
was elected Vico President, and,
Savarin was returned unopposed as jan-
eral Secretary. The elections brought

I road in your issue of t'he 17th A.ki,

Carty is no longer employed with the Union.
All business is to be 'conducted' with Nordil-
ern Organizer, T.F. Desbonnes of Portsmouth.
There is quite a stir in the North among
the members, especially the Portsmouth See-
tion, as to why I am no longer employed,
after working voluntarily for over six yco]
and was only recently employed in March F ,
Quite a lot of rumours are going around which
may eventually end up in a Law Suit.
Therefore I think it is BAWU's duty to
enlighten the members (if not the general
public) as to why I am no longer employed
by them. Let us get the facts: I asm quite
prepared to vindicate my cause. I also have
in my possession a few articles, to wit:
subscription cards, buttons and a few do3llrs.
property of the DAWU; but I notice that they
have discreetly kept from publishing the
date or month when I was supposed to be no
longer emplpyedi neither have they mradc any
arrangement for taking over the articles

lnoncing at 9.00 p.n. lHis ExCeloency was

POLICE EQUIPMENT RECEIVED
Statements appearing re ntly in
sections of the local pros, in con-
nection with the receipt of weapons; by
the Royal Dominica Police Force,,
tended to create the impression that
the force was being earned gor special
operations. The Ministry for Home
Affairs wishes to nake it abundantly
clear that the arms received by. the
Police are the direct results of
recommendations made by'the Deputy
Overseas Police Adviser, who visited
the Force towards the end of 1966.
The Adviser in his report obBservoi
that the Force seriously lackdng in
equipment, anong other things, had
been armed with long outdated rifles
and the shipmenont of modern arms just
received, is noeant to correct this
deficiency.
Similarly, the rifle range at El8S
Hall about which there is no secrecy,
was again part 6f the Advisor.s
reconmendationso The- range will be
used by both' tihe' Police- and the
