All Dominicans, Including those abroad, should be interested in some
figures recently extracted from Government.
In reply to two searching questions in the House of Assembly put by
Eon.,E,B Henry, that doughty champion of the welfare ahd freedom of
Dominica, regarding royalties paid to the State by (a) Dominica Mining
Co, (pumice) and Dom-Can Timbers Co. for timber concessions, the Gov-
ernment supplied the following information:
(a) DomniciaY Minini Co.
1965/6 1966/67 1967/68
$5,239 9,204 $15,345
(b) Dom--Cgu Timbers C...
May November, 1968 $14,11i5
As far as I am aware, both these: companies enjoy special tax conces-
sions as regards income tax and customs duties on their plant and equip-
ment, Consequently, these receipts are the direct revenues which the,
State has enjoyed during the periods indicated to be. set, off against the
concessions granted.
It is important to bear in mind that both industries are what are
known as extractivee" industries. This means that they do not produce
the materials of their activities as, for example, in agriculture, but
:extract from a fixed accumulation or reservoir, not of their creation,
the raw material in which they deal. This aspect of the.:matte is
clearer in the case of pumice, but even forestry partakes of the same
nature, since 20O-year-old forest trees may be regarded, 'fr a few
generations at any rgte, as fixed. In other words, both-these industries
draw upon fixed natural assets of the' State.
The question is : are we satisfied with the returns we are getting
from parting with these fixed national resources? This is a question
rather different in kind froV that of asking whether certain individuals
in direct relationship with these companies benefit from their opera-
tions. In the case of the pumice, the State has received $29,788 over
Years or less than $10,000 per annum. Many individuals and companies
pay to Goverrnment more than $10,000, per annum as income tax and with no
=id r2 gro. The Timber Company paid 014,115 over six months operations
during which time it extracted over one million board feet and this sum
is the nation's share of the value of each million feet of boards
extracted from our forests. As regards the activities of this company,
there is widespread and persistent complaint that re-afforestation is
not following the deforestation and that large-scale soil erosion under
the conditions of Dominica's rainfall gnd terrain remains a threat.
I am content for the moment merely to state the facts m-d figures and
allow every intelligent person to draw his own conclusion, I would
merely add this: I pray God no valuable. mineral, deposits, if we have any,
are discovered in Dominica during the reminder if the term of office of
the present Government,

I was greatly surprised at a statement which, according to press
reports, the Headmaster of the Dominica Grammua School made on the occa-
sion of the School's Founder's Day, 1969. He is reported to have said
that "it is in the Dominica Grammar School that the future of this State
I do not know whether Headmuasters enjoy a counterpart of poets'
licence, but this statement seems= to me. to be: one not only unsupported by
facts, but also offensive to some. After the havoc which has been
wrought on the ama mat. of many Dominicans by the present' Government, I
cannot see on what grounds the Headmaster's prophecy is based
Regrettably, facts appear to be against him, (Continued on Page Four)

As this paper has editorially asked : how does he: account for the.
fact that the island's girls, despite the Government's budgetary
prejudice against female secondary education, has run away with the
Island Scholarships so preponderantly 'during the past decade? In the
same line and during the s*me period, how has the Grammar School fared
in competition with St. Mary's, Academy? With the best will. in the
world, how could the Gtammar School be expected to develop and maintain
its potential in the face of the frequent unwarranted ministerial
usurpations of the functions of the Headmaster which has been such an
unfortunate feature of the past few years? No, Mr. Headmaster,
unfortunately this is not a case of "all our past proclaims our future"
and most people see the future of this State as lying in all the
schools of Dominica --- primary as well as secondary --.and
particularly, although not yet developed, in the vocational sections,
which is the type of education it seems this State most badly needs at
this time: for the more effective realization of its potential. In this
democratic age, I am sure the future of Dominica does not lie in any
one single educational institution.

Let me devote the rest of this week's column to comment on a state-
ment of "Peter Simple". Let me also begin by saying that I am
consistently unimpressed by that columnist's outpourings and I know
that this view is widely shared.
In his contribution to the "Dominica Chronicle" of 25th January
under the title "When Journalism & Politics Begin to Mix", we find this
beauty:"I must confess that I am against the fusion of politics and
journalism; the two cannot be served equally well.". Whatever this
statement may mean, it cannot deny that of all. possible fields,
journalism is most intimately concerned with politics. Politics
figures largely in all. the world's popular newspapers. Indeed, it is
only the technical., sports and, to some extent, religious periodicals
which do not'concern themselves with politics. And particularly in a
small community where specialist publication is. o impracticable
proposition, how is it possible to avoid combining journalism with
politics, especially where, as in our case,, politics seeks to impose
itself on all facets of life:? The trouble here with "Peter Simple" may
be summed up in the adage : "One. man's meat is another mant's poison".
I strongly suspect that "Peter Simple" would hold a different view if
local journalistic wrath were turned upon another group or class of
politicians. My contention- is amply borne out by the fact that in the
article under review, he can find justification -- or at least, explana-
tion -- of the Premier's refusal-to hold Press: Conferences in the
circumstance of accredited reporters to such Conferences being members
of the Party in opposition to Government. Anyone who. can argue that,

immensely within the years. And I
think band leaders should be highly
commended for their marvellous
efforts. Yet let me say this -
despite the fact that they should
be commended they should equally be
blamed for not producing Carnival
bands of an improved nature.
Speaking about Carnival bands, I
think bandleaders do not ever
consider the length of their bands.
They pay attention to the standard
of the costumes but that is
insufficient. A well adorned band
with only a few dozens of revellerse
is not as revealing as say a band
of a hundred and over. No doubt
about it, the costumes are of a
high standard but each year I think
bandleaders and organizers should
also try to extend the length of the
bands, which is just as important as
costuming and the like.
What too can worthlessly kill as
band is the absence of 'band
policemen' who could keep order and
ensure that pedestrians keep out,
What could be more messy and
jumbled than seeing a beautiful
band with ordinary civilians all in-
between! Revelliers should learn to
keep uncostumed relatives and
friends entirely out, since they
are the ones who can cause a ban- t(
lose what it should gain from good
photographs right back to prizes.
But so long as the bands are roped
round there should be no difficulty,
with friendly 'band policemen'
keeping intruders out.

A great tragedy too that Dominica
Carnival still suffers is the wil-
ful murder of jumping up on the
streets and parading and drinking
lavishly several days before Carni-
val. Usually, one has often noted,
before noon on the first day several
of the revellers are already
fatigued and harassed so that they
can go no more for the rest of the
day. This could mean that the real
flavour of Carnival Monday would be-
completely lost.
And another thing have you
noticed the flock of 'carnival babies'
that et born (often to teen-age
girls) around November or early Dec.,
according to Carnival date?

A Carnival Short Story:
By Collins F. O'Neill
Well pappa, most of you know that in some/street corners in Dominica all
between the hours of 10 and 12 in the night you get a lot of excitement; but
when you want to see real bacchanal and any amount of excitement all you
have to do is get yourself a ticket and hurry over to Trinidad, moreso at
Carnival, First you will notice the'sizeable bands, the shortest being usual-
ly nearly a quarter mile long. But apart from the bands and even their gorgeous
costumes, on entering the biggest junctions your heart would sure skip a beat
and set aflame on seeing just one or two drummers sitting on their drums, about
the size of a huge watermelon. Both ends of the drum are usually covered with
sheepskin, the beat of which attracts crowds of people from almost everywhere.
They encircle the drummers whilst two men carray according to the rhythm of
the drums, each with a long stick in his'hand.
When Sonny de Bourg saw a whole quarter of an hour had passed and no one
threw out a stick in the ring, his mind told him that everyone around were
cowards.. He didn't know that a stickman called "the giant" was waiting for
any intruder who dared to stand up in the ring and carray for him. The giant
immediately threw out and crossed Sonny's stick with his, and there the fight
began a carnival stick fight all for fun. Yes, and that was what Sonny was
doing just playing for fun; but he did not know the giant had decided to kill
the first man who looked as a real bad before his eyes, and frankly, Sonny was
the man he.was making the dirty crack at, and if his stick was only able to
talk it woild have surely told him so before he dared to challenge such a dirty
bloodsucker. When Sonny de Bourg saw a whole quarter of an hour had passed in
vain and the giant didn't make a charge he became courageous and rolled up
his pants no sooner had the first round ended. He twisted a white handkerchief
round his head and returned to the circle. The drum beat resumed and again both
men carrayed before each other. The giant who was no more than a cool 4-footer,
and stocky in size, wore plain clothes as did his opponent, a white kerchief
round his head, and tied a red one round his neck.
"He really looks as the champ", one onlooker muttered and suddenly a heavy
blow was coming down to his head which he breaks-off with his stick. This was
real fun especially for the female onlookers whose voices could be heard echo-
ing the tunes of the drum. The giant didn't like the way the blow was dealt
him so as it was now his turn to return a charge; he bobbed, jigged, chansayed
a bit, then hammered a blow on De Bourg's head which his stick hase failed to
breaks-off, driving him in a stooping position. Though stick playing is meant
to be all fun, as De Bourg quickly got back up blood was already streaming
down his head, "Oh Gord: Oh Gord: Ah geh cut: Ah geh cut." he exclaimed, "Oh
Gord. Ah got to cut 'im back. Ah got to cut 'im back."
The drum beat more emphatically while both men danced and carrayed for a
while with their sticks. Soon another charge came and de Bourg lay on the
ground, unconscious and bleeding from his mouth. Within minutes the Red Cross
attendants put him on a stretcher and moved away. That was fun, but it did not
end just there. The news reached De Bourg's wife, known as Soonoon, a night
plub member of about 37. She rushed up to the Junction. Part of the crowd was
still there, but the giant had already disappeared. He knew for sure that if
he'd stick around there might be some plot against him. Nevertheless, the
drumming resumed before an excited crowd. No-one dared to pick up a stick and
jump in the ring. But Soonoon who had already taken possession of her husband s
stick jumped into the ring dancing and singing the words of the drumming;
"Moomah, moomah,
Moomah wen ah dead 'ury me,
Moomah wen ah dead Lury me,
S Take ah towel an' band up you belly."
Soonoon sang, then paused and shouted, "Where dem. Where deim." throwing her
stick on the ground in the middle of the ring she continued to sing, and jig:

.Moomah, moomah,
Look ah in de jail already,
Moomah look ah in de jail already,
Just don't cry too much over me.
Soonoon's stick lay on the ground unchallenged for a whole ten minutes.
She had disguised herself in a man s outfit but the only thing she couldn't
disguise .was her voice. Through noise of the excited crowd waiting to witness
the combat, one could determinewhdlher h&rs was that of a male or female.
A stick crossed the one on the ground, and that spelt trouble. The drums
beat more.....and Soonoon looked around to see that she was now challenged'
She threw the stick off hers and the owner of it rushed into the ring telling
himself that no one has a right to touch his stick whether it be i4 his hands
or on the ground. The woman did not care about what he thought but was re-
lieved to see that it was the giant who had returned. As the giant recognized
her, he attempted to shake hands with her but she refused it carrying with
her stick and shaking her head from left to right. She carrayed for several
minutes yet the giant refused to take up his stick, then tears streamed from
the woman's cheeks for a while, and as the giant failed to respond she charged
a blow towards his head but the giant quickly threw it off with his left hand.
She charged another which caught him below his ribs. There was trouble in this
one and the giant had already figured it out. He knew that she was out to
avenge the man who floored her husband. The giant could stand it no more and
picked up his stick and within a matter of minutes blood was gushing down his
forehead. He didn't even know he was wounded until voices in the crowd shouted,
"Blood! Blood! Blood!" To prove that he was the wounded victim, he glanced at
his opponent and saw no signs of blood on her. He was mad. The giant bobbed,
weaved and chansayed again professionally then came down with full force but
the woman broke off what might have ended in a fatal blow. Three other charges
followed in quick succession from the giant the woman's stick breaking in
two on the third charge. But thank heaven that Sonny de Bourg had already re-
cuperated and was in'the crowd and watching patiently. He quickly rushed up
behind the giant and as the giant attempted to charge the woman Sonny managed
to disarm him.
Soonoon, an old night club member, rushed to h5m and suddenly both she and
the giant wrestled on the ground. After some minutes when she was facing de-
feat she suddenly pulled off a side of her shoes, dealt several quick blows
