TO TALK OF MANY THINGS By Androcles

The Nigerian civil war is one of the saddest, events of our tine. M-fy own
synpathies-are entirely with Biafra, foe I an firinly of opinion that any te-
rritory has the right to. slf-determination and that no other power has the&.
moral right to hold any considerable number of people in any kind of federa-
tion against their will. Most of the wars of rocont tines have been fought
to establish this very principle of self-dctormination.
In the Biafran war, 'all military. apsistance has boon given to the Federal.
Government. Andl- strange enough, the principal suppliers have been those improb-
able conbinatio'.of Great-Britain and the Soviet Union; the former no doubt
wishing to maintain the territorial integrity of the Nigotia of its making;
tho latter, as usual, fishing in troubled waters. No one, however, has the
right to believe that the territorial creation of Nigeria brought about by
Groat Britain at the height of its colonialist activities has any God-givon
pornanence not challengeable by the millionss of that area known historically
as Biafra. To the credit of France, be it said that it has in a small way
tried to even out matters by supplying arns to Biafra even. while the other two
Great Powers have provided the Foderal authorities with arms. on a large scale,
Had the Biafrans boon supplied arms on a similar soale, I have no doub- that
they would have boon able successfully to defend thdo'Alves. As it is, with
the odds so much against thonm the Biafrans have given a superb account of
thiisalvos. One reason for their tenacity of purpose is the fact that the Fed-
oeal authorities are undoubtedly practising' against Diafra a forn of genocide
in their desiro to keep that territory under its control. It is known that
Biafra contains the bulk of the nincral resources of the erstwhile Federation
and this explains the detor:ination of the Fedoral authorities to hold on to
Biafra at all costs.
A Qivil war is always a sad spectacle, but the moro fact of its exig.tpaco
indicates that the secessionist side is not happy in its association with thb
rest of the federal'territory. Since the days, of the Ancrican Civil War thoro
has' boon much now thinking on those justice and desirability of holding large..
areas in a federation against the will of these people and I believe the irod-
orn view is that it is wrong to enforce the creation of a federation or the
maintenance of an existing one in stch circumstances.
I believe that theor is much Binfran blood in the veins of Dominicans and
other Wost Indians. There is also much of the blood of those other tribes
which now make up the ronaining part of VNigeria, but I 'hili.c that Biafra
provided a larger proportion of the slaves who 6anao to the ITest Indies and
historical nanes like Bonin, Bonny, QLd Galabar, figure prominently in the
history, of the Atlantic slave trade.


When the new school year opened. parents wore astounded at the change in
school hours in someno at least, of the secondary schools. 'To account seems to
have been taken of the convenience of the hones front which -;he pupils. .comnoe,
TEius school starts much o:arlior and ends before J o'clock. l.But today's- parents
arem mostly working poopT0 who do not leave work before 4 o clock. Hence pup-,
Sil a4e unsupervised for a longer period -- the time between: school dismissal
'and tho rethun of parents. Another unhappy feature is that in the case of
hbmos outside of Roseau ('eodwill and the villaigbs) the children cannot even
got to then bu, have over an hou, to tranp all over the town while waiting for
their parents or the country buses which also cator for taking the workers
home after 4 o'clock.
It would be interesting to kvow in whose interest this knschedulod change
was made and why thort was no prior discussion with those ?rinari)ly concerned.
Until the benefits of the change can be more cpnvincingly 'nhown, it sones that
0yovea1siob to the fornmr 'hours should take place.. The now ours do net soon to
rako sense -- certainly., not convenience, .

All Ministers & the Mayor of Roseau were

The Premier dismissed the deputation soon,
to answer "certain statements made in the
street outside" from a loudspeaker rigged
up beforehand on the balcony. lie spoke then
complimenting Miss Eigenia. Charles, a chief
organiser of the Freedom Front, on the ord-
erly march and her address" then declared
his Govt. was elected for two more years to
rule, "and in 2 years you will have a chance
to let us go" applause. Miss Charles re-
plied that the public was grateful for the
promise of a free election. On Sunday
night a lrge grave crowd in O.Mary St.
heard 5 speakers chaired by Mrs. Allfrey
describe the harmful clauses of the Act
which IA'A had criticised. Elkin Henry said
Govt. had asked hin to delete words'from his
resolution on the Act and when he refused
they deleted it from the ag:oenda. ********

AJTDROCLES (Continued from Page 2) I greatly enjoyed the historical t4lk given
by the Parish Priest of Pointe Michel at the High Hass on the feast day of Our
Lady of La Salctto on the origin of this devoti n 'in Doeinic.* A historical
talk on any aspect of our affairs is always intor6sting : when it is given by
the local expert on the subject, Father Proesmans, it is doubly so.
This feast is trithout any doubt the most popular of all in Doninica,
Every September 19th you will find large numbers of iporsons from every single
parish of Dominimca-taking part in the celebrations at Pointe Michol. And this
has boon so for generations.
However, as Fr. Proosnms explained, the reason for the historical talk this
year instead of the-usual homily was to prepare the people of Dominica for the
centenary of this celebration at Pointe Michel which will occur in 1970.
I was particularly intrigued by one of the proposals made, Father Proosnans
pointed out that in many countries there is a National Shrine whither the na-
tion resorts in prayer at tines of national calamity and Qn occasions of 'aa
tional rejoicing. The designation of one place abovo others as a National
Shrine requires the approval and consent of the civil authorities. To my =ind
there i4 no place in DOcinica more clearly indicated as a National Shrine than
the shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, hallowed by close on a hundred years'by
the devotion of the foroboars of the majority of Do-xiniceans. Ij therefore,
strongly support the suggestion and hope that early stops will be taken to
include it in the contonnial celebrations in 1970.


If anyone harbourod any lingering reservations againstt the impropriety of
the Seditious and Undesirable Publications Act, 1968, 'this residue. of doubt
uitst have been dispollod by the telegram dated 2nd August sent to the Govoernor
of 'Dominica by the Inter American Press Association and the text of which was
carried by last week's pcpors.-.
Government, of course, made quite a secret of the receipt; of this not Vory
laudatory telegroI1 but the text was later made avLilablo to the locql papers
by the senders. ...
The interesting thing, about the telegram is that it highlights the'eYory
points that this column made in its series of com.ricntaries on the law,$ as also
did the Freedom Fighters make in their expltmation of it to the people of
Doninica.
The telegram contains this striking sentence N: '106 find this Act shockingly
contrary to the letter and spirit of press freedomm.. it strikes a blow to
froodon of thought and o-xpression and goes far'boeyond the normal sedition and
libol laws that democratic countries recognisq.."
Was it necessary to have brought such unwholesono promi.'on-ce upon Doninica?
1What can the Governnont now say in defence? And what can ibs most ardent
upp'ortcrs urge in oxtonuation of such abuse of poorr"

TANZANIA and the CZECHS i
From the REPORTER, Nairobi: W
It must have been a new exper- c
ience for Russian diplomats in Dar t
es Salaam to face a seething col- B
umn of demonstrating Tanzanians i
flaunting hastily improvised slo- c
gans such as: 'To hell with Russ- i
ian fascists'. s
The rape of Czechoslovakia c
sparked. off a massive TANU-Youth I
demonstration which gave point to
the fact that the 'Nationalist'
leading article rapping Communist- W
block interference meant what it
said. ]
Tanzania was very angry indeed ,
with the Soviet Union. Riot po-
lice on duty to avert any accidents
found themselves scuffling through
masses of torn-up Soviet propaganda
shredded to pieces by the chanting
demonstrators,
Main disillusionment, of course,
was the bitter realisation that
major Communist-bloc countries
'could be just as guilty of colon-
ialism and imperialism as the much-*
criticised West. To the man-in-
the-street it was a bitter example
of the utter cynicism of power
politics. SPRO.

Book Review: THE POWER HOUSE
by WmrHaggard
(at your public library)
Almost all the characters in this
book, not excepting the heroic ones,
are rather nasty people. Those who
think politics is a dirty game will
find their opinion confirmed. The
narrative begins slowly, but bright-
ens and heightens towards a final
climax. Easy it is to see that this
novel was written by a Conservative
and that the Prime Minister is a
thinly disguised version of a pre*
sent-day British Labour personality.
What is interesting is the dist-
aste with which Security Executives
regard the Prime Minister's manoev-
res; and how, when the P.R. betrays,
a personal friend who helped him to
power, the Security Branch steps in
to save the man. The book shows up
the evils of organised gambling too,
but we consider its weak part the
description of Victor Demuth and his
fate (having a clue as to the proto-
type).
Haggard writes like this of the
Po.M.: "A scandal could be fatal,
not perhaps to the party which might
very well survive it against an Opp-
osition so unconvincing, but fatal
to Harry Fletcher. His sensitive
antennae had been waving in the po-
litical winds. He had enemies and
realized it, for he'd put on a show,
a one-man band, and there were coll-
eagues who resented it...."
This is a tale of perfidy and of
a man who put simple friendship ab-
ove loyalty to a Prime Minister.
It is interesting enough to dip in-
to anyhow' ...

SI..ITH IN DEEP WATER----
What do Smith of Rhodesia and Wil-
son of England have in common? Not
much, certainly. But one. thing is
that since they came to office both
of them have been doing a quite re-
markable job in holding together in
one party groups with entirely diff-
erent views on the main political
points at issue.
It has always seemed, of course,
that Wilson would come unstuck first;
and indeed he is going to have a
rough go of it again at the approa-
ching Labour Party Conference. But
so far he has stuck it out against
all hazards, and at present there
are signs that his popularity is
risingonce more.
For Smith, things have been diff -
erent. He has had the advantage
of what some white Rhodesians des-
cribe as a Dunkirk spirit the sort
of advantage that Churchill had dur-
ing.the Second World War when many
Englishmen who hated his political
ideas suppressed criticism because
it would have been unpatriotic. For
Churchill of course, this only last-
ed. the duration of the war; imm-
ediately afterwards he was thrown
out of office.
Something like this may now be
happening for Smith in Rhodesia.
The emergency which resulted from
UDI has now lasted too long for
people to suppress their criticism.
There have been rumours of crises
in the ruling Rhodes-en Front be-
fore; but until now the fervour of
independence has been enough to keep
opposing factions together.
But those opposing actions are
really very far apart they ex-
tend, in fact, from people who would
accept multi-racial development
provided it were very slow to out
and out supporters of apartheid.
These are greater distinctions than
anything Wilsonmhas to cope with in
the British Labour Party.
Recently the Rhodesian National
Party has been founded, and there
has been a slow but i;nareasing drift
towards this by members of Smith's
Rhodesian Front. Two .leading Cab-
inet ministers have resiiged,
There could be election. defeats in
the offing. The creat:.'on of the
Centre Party seems to reflect more
erosion on Smith's left;. Politic-
ally, he is to be pitid at the
moment. (Con'd on paEe7 )

Short Story 002 UNIVERSAL MALE by A,L. Winston
Jim went to the Education Department to inquire into the G.C.E. res-
ults which were published generally recently. ..He wanted his.
Good day, sir. Have results come?
What results, ma boy?
G.C.E. Cambridge.
Oh yes. Just wait a minute. Your name again?
tim Jenson.
The man disappeared into another section of the office and he could
be heard as papers made their flipping' familiar noise. He returned.
Boy.
Yes, sir,
You sat four subjects. You passed History (West Indiqn), Commerce
and Economics. But you FAILED ENGLISH.
That's three out of four. I'll sit English with London in January4
You're ambitious, boy, That's how I like to hear boys talk.
Thank you, sir until another time.
Jim departed from the Department and on his way home he met Jackson,
an old school mate.
How's it, Jack?
Real cool an' breezy, man.
What's cooking' in the pot?
Failed English. G.C.Eo results are out..
You talk too much and write too little.
You're a preacher or something.
Knock it off, buddy.
Fine.
They walked in silence until they met Jane in 'Cork StrePt.: Jane, an
old pal of theirs, called them. Jane, started off or should I say,
sparked off a. conversation.
Anything new?
Jackson was first to remark that he liked her skirt,
So what?
These are my favourite colours, Ohite and pale lavender, They get
py temperature on the up, have my heart beating' like thunder. And you
make mD crumble with wonderful rapture with one burnin' spark from your
eye.
You're a literature student.
Just fancy the subject, You should know that,
You crammed the. piece somewhere.
How you irk my lonesome self, girl,
Don't 'girl' me.
O.K. honey.
Jane is my name, Jim was always my favourite of you two. I wish you'd
listen to him.
If wishes were horses, beggars would ride,
You callin' me a beggar?
No love, just a wisher.
I'm no Sancho Panza, you're the male.,
Yes. I'm ~ Universal Male. Sancho Panza wap the laughing stock in
Don Quixote. Sleepy guy. Like Jim.
You nutty thing, you ...
There and then Jannette passed, as they feared the gate of the Bota-
nie Gardens, in her Kapitan. She stopped, too-1 them to the. Sulphur
Springs by way of the valley road. She took an immediate liking for -
Jim as the rather extrovertish Jackson always tried to monopolize: the
conversation. Jackson became a kind of hush to the more. eloquent Jann-
ette. Jannette dropped them home and promised them another outing.
