The United, Kngdom has now carried itt f amous spirit oT compromi e to the
absurd length of brin$ng its paep propqsa .to Anguilla to the acoempanment

shaw ,of 'tf" .Kittsl It was only the refusea Jaimaica to take part' 4n this
expedition 4hic' called it -off, Now, I understand,, the'Prime.Mijnist4r of
Trizi'ad and Tobago ha. change heart and ha' denrounded the use of force )by
Great Britain,' but I have reservations about his boma fides in thismmatter,
The first conclusion I draw from what has recently happened in Anguilla
is that the present Heads 6Pf Gopernmpets have developed among,.thepaselves g
kin4 of pathological 'scatc h-my, bag~ -satch-yours" philosophy tq the ex-
tent that they are found willing to support-each other no matter what the
morality of the situation 'may be; .Herein lies the explanation of the proposal
made by one of them some time ago, namely, itpat island Defence Forces should
be available for use i4 a y part of the area at the request of the Government
needing their services. It is likely, too, that CARIFTA is the price which the
smaller islands are willing to pay to th' larger and more industrialized ones
in order to ka sure of the support of Burnham., Williams:, Barrow, in their
efforts at political selfperpetuation.
The sickening aspect of the whole thing is that at the recent Heads of
Governmennts get-togo;ther at Port-of-Spain,' not one Government was found will-
ing. to teke a dissenting stand against the Vonference request to Great Britain
that force, if necessary, bb used against the Anguillans; It is noteworthy
that after the invasion of Anguil1a, Compton of St Lucia openly expressed'
approval'. He was, no dougt, sappkng also, on behalf of the others, Our own
Premier refused to comment, thus once again iAdioating.that .silece means'
cons.ente i
In the interest of the safety of West Indians, it is.now more than ever
vrgept .that at,least so>ie of Jthe area Governments be changed at the earliest
possible opportunity in erder to begih to 'demolish this monolithh of personal
power-seeking which now dominates the Caribbean area..
To Prevent "further disintegration.' of the aremindeed? Has "i-'1tegrition"
te laost its original meaning that Guyana, many hundred of miles from. the
saenbe, can feel it hap the right to decide on the fate of the people of Anguilla
, jt because, and only because, both territories have:in the past had a common
ister? To disintegrate, there,must already have been'?integration. Thus apart
from the historical fact of our all having hadqa common master, there is no
Other factor which confers Upon Guyana, Trinidad or any of the others a greater
right to interfere in Anguila'P internal affairs than can be claimed by, say,
Bt, Martin or Haiti. This is indeed a morally flimsy ,basis of action.
The contrast in treatment for the same sin of U.D,I. between Anguilla and
Rhodesia is too obvious foi comment and any Caribbean child can see the
explanation-.

ANDROCLES (Continued from Page' Two)
Apart from~ its 'compromise 'in displaying fore- in. Anguilla to satisfy West
Indian .Heads of Governments, Great Britain"-':ee~q -to have got corectly at the
heart.,of he .matter nd ..this should.give no jdy, t.'.Bradshaw's:.cronies. Despite
what .Burnham & C0' think, the 'British"Government, has made it abundantly' clear
that it is not. going to force the Anguillans back into association with what..
they consider the detested administration bas,6sdptSt.. Kitts. In-the essetial:'-
sense, therefore,. Anguilla has won her battl,,.ithough the clumsines, .with which
Britain has gone about' solving .the problem appears to.be going to' cause a great
deal of complieat'on .. 'Several Afro-Asian states., ,the Soviet-Union (as ever) .
and perhaps--in due course: many' o.f the'non-aligned countries will hold up 'Great
Britain s recent action in Anguilla to world contempt and obloquy. The method
f. going aboutthe 4ffajr'on the part of Great Britain may. in time produce the
strange.spectacle of distant niatioas taking up the cudgel of Anguilla while.-.
her very close Associated States neighbours utter not'even, a'word'.of-protest~i.-':.
Itt 'Anguillans. know' that,, despite-the silence of our Government and despite .
Compton s "tbravo" to Great Britain 'spoken on-behalf of the present Governments
of the Associated States., the majority of the people.of Dominica are .with them
in thdir struggle.
-. One cannot help-that lump-in-the-thro.at feeling' nd which has heen- -expressed -
Sby the leading English.dailies upon .contemplating the -Anguilla populace, wildly
waving the .Union Jack and enthusiastically singing "The Queen" upon the arrival
of Mr., Whitlock,' the junior Minister entrusted with making contact with the
Anguillans and their leaders, and being within a week surrounded. by warships
and troops-of Her.Majesty. Clearly, someone had blundered. .
The charge, first originating fromSt. Kitts, that Anguilla is currently
in the grip of Mafia-type gangsters,, does not materially affect the' picture.
'Apart from the fact that gangsters may also be found in some c'onstitutioially
proper places, no one will be inclined to believe that it required- paratroops,-
helicopters, marines and warships to deal with a few (at the most) dozen
gangsters, assuming the charge to be true.
The incident of the warm welcome .iven Mr. Whitlock upon landing in.Anguilla
&a8d -his, enforced- flight-from the island-a few hours later, remains perhaps the
greatest enigma'in the whole of the- recent happenings. It has been suggested
that the eminently reasonable nature of the solution Mr. Whitlock .brought to
the Anguillans notwithstanding., the fact that it was a solution -to- which the
Anguillans had not .been invited to contribute and which%:(,they believed) had
been discussed with the ,Bradshaw.Government based in St.. Kitts,. upset the
leaders of the. people. Even that, I admit, is not. a satisfactory explanation
.of the incident. .
What does the whole of this Anguilla' affair amount to in essence? It-is
once again a manifedtatibn of the. spirit of freedom'which, in all ages and
among most 'people, is an unquenchable; fire. While it 'is true that great crimes
are committi'd.-i.n the name of liberty, great deeds'and heroic sacrifices are
also willingly made. In Anguilla, 'I think, despite small errors (and I feel
that proclaiming itself a' republic, is -one), "we are witnessing a manifestation
of that eternal spirit of the chainlest mind. I say that in spite of mistakes
which 'the~'Anrgui~lan leaders in th-'eir quest for'liberty have made, this people
continues to co. mmnd'the admiration. of'free peoples everywhere who subscribe
to the view that 6nd one :is truly free who does' ot work for the freedom of,
-others. Meanwhile," little Ai1guilla .cdhtinues to be widely regarded as a home
of the brave ad'-the 'free. '1- 'salute 'these people.

Short Story 4 BLOOD IS XPENISIVE (Duel at a Water-Pipe)
By Collins F. O'Neill
I hitched up my skirt and started fetching water early so that. by 9
- clockk I would be ahead of the crowd. Bgt by 9 o 'clock my water drum
at'home was just about half full and the crowd at the pipe was like. a
.1sma1tiof bees. People who for years had never frequented our pipe were,
on that Sunday morning, like they were off their chump as if the pipe
had been theirs. You see, one of the pipes in the vicinity was running
slow and another had completely stopped running, so they crowded to my
usual pipe. I did not mind the overcrowding anyway, because of my
patience. Yet I remembered my father's last words before he died five
years ago, "Be brave girlie Seek your full rights."
As most of us know and as is the custom everywhere, water carrying
almost everywhere is done: by turns first come first served. But Lucy
had planned to do it her own way. After she had carried away several
buckets for the morning she decided that she would push away anything
she met below the pipe. I didn't mind the treacherous way she said that
but was determined to cease the water business. I sat on the front step
for a while then I remembered my father's last words as I pondered over
Luay's threats. But I had to return to the pipe since the water I
collected was not yet sufficient to complete the day's chores at home.
I discarded the pair of heavy shoes I was wearing; this enabled me
to move along faster with my water ;and decided on wearing something just
in case of any emergency. And I had a hunch therer'was going, to be an
emergency somehow, some time that morning. Lucy was about 17 and I was
a couple of months younger.
I returned to the pipe with my bucket and felt good to see that the
big crowd was there and no Lucy. Almost everybody was saying "Lucy's
afraid she ain't coming back."
But strangely, as it was about my turn'to get to the pipe, Lucy came
running with her bucket in her hand1 She walked slowly to the pipe and
stood there watching another person s bucket fill up. My turn came next
and I anticipated that because of my gentility and patience she would
take advantage of me. It did happen. She pushed away my bucket. Then
I snapped.
"That isn't a safe thing to dot Lucy," She didn't reply so I
continued, cautiously, "Why don't you grow up for a change rather than
look for trouble."

Soon she squeaked in protest, "I'm spre you heard what I said just
now,"(reminding me of her threats).

"You're looking for trouble, Lucy. I don't want to get into trouble
Uith you. You may take my turn this time, Lucy; but just be careful
next time I warned her.
Lucy smiled, put both her hands akimbo, said, "Just understand this: as
long as I continue to fetch water in this pipe this morning I don't
intend to stand here to wait on nobody."
There were many things in life that I said before and never was
serious, but it seemed that things had changed, maybe due now'to my age.
When Lucy walked into her yard with her stolen bucket of water she
stumbled and the bucket fell off her head, splashing water all over her
dress. I would have liked to hold up on the water business but could
not, in as much as it was announced earlier that water would be. locking
off at 10 a.m. and because of the crowd and the distance I had'.to go I
could not yet stop since my 45-gallon ,drum was just about half full.
Anyway in order to hasten the trips my mother accompanied me this time
with a long 5-gallon tin.







Saturday, March 29, 1969,.1 ,_THE__sT. ...- _. ... _.... _P_S
Our home was a bit close., to the pipe than Lucyta so we returned to the
pipe before her,. A couple of carriers were already the-.,but as good
maritans we waited for our turn. .It did come, and not only tht -
Lucy came too-" She had her bucket in one hand .and something about six
inches long wrapped up neatly in a bit of paper.

My mother had her five-gallon container below the pipe filling Wien
Lucy strode across to her, 'Ma Fuentas," she said-She was only a foot
away from her, ?"You join with your daughter to war against re." Lucy
spoke sternly; aad looked real mean. I walkedaup beside my mother.
"My mother and .you had nothing," I warned, "Lay "off her." Then I
told mother feverishly, "Go get your tin filled-up, mamma, let us leave
this pipe."

Mother turned off and Lucy:and I stood there face to face the
anxious crowd shouting, "Hee-gas!' ee-gas."
One thing I .knew for sure was that my mother was well known for her
quick-tempered disposition and that was what made me afraid. I was
right for suddenly my mother walked up slowly behind her with her tin
of water on her head and poured it all over Lucy's head. As Lucy wibed :
her face and eyes I pulled away the wrapped item from her hand a;d threw.
it to my mother,, who quickly opened it. It was, a pair of scissors.
Lucyj ignoring the loss of her scissors fpr the moment, hurried to the
pipe and without ... word took up the can of water and threw it back onar~r
mother and that was how the real duel began. -

"Not my mother," I saic.angrily, "nobody's going to put her stinking
hands on my mother. and get off." I swiftly threw my bucket towards her
face but she fended it off withher hands and almost at the same time I
sprang at her, It was a long nasty fight. My mother. who had stood
there motionless, braced herself up when she, sas. Lucy's brother -Clyde,
(about 24) and another sister, Jean (about 21) hastening towards the
pipe. Clyde had in his hand a sharp cutlass and Jean m hunk of wood.,
When they .were still some.way of: my mother skilfully dropped Lucy to the
ground with a blow from behind and threw herself upon her with the
scissors upraised in her right hand..Then she warned the other water
carriers.
"Get word to those two fools approaching there. Tell. them the sight
of weapons get me crazy," she said, "Tell. them to drop theIir weapons,
quickly, lest their sister take the.'fatal blow"

,Lucy- twisted and turned trying to get out of the clinch, but -m :
mother- maintained'-her -brutish hook. with the weapon'raised. The enemy ..
party drew still .nearer. And mother shouted.again, ."Get..your ,-we,apo.nsou.t .%:
your hands."' She added "that's my last ,warning. Throw away .yQur .weaponCs..
you fools, and come... We can discuss"thinags peacefully.. There s enough
bloodshed here already."
The couple now advanced slowly, yelled "Drop your, scissors and we'"l
drop our weapons., -

"I have. no choice," mother shouted, "I'm old enough to die now, andc
I'm sure your sister would be going .with me;, if you don't do as I say. I
warn, I'm not bluffing."

The couple was now very close moving in slowly with their weapons. I
could not dissuade my mother, for since my life. too now depended on her,
to run was out of the quest ion.
