CIVIL SERVICE NEUTRALITY
Few contributions to the local press can rival, surely none can sur-
pass, in timely importance the article reproduced from the Civil Service
Association Newsletter which appeared in the issue of "The Star" of 15th
March. lt4.iis a cri de copur, an anguished groan from a writer who, despite
wliat he s&es around him, has the moral courage publicly to bewail the
descent of' sections of the Civil Service from their high standards of
evert political neutrality which a long tradition had built up. A top
Civil Servant, as things now stand, would not write it: one from the lower
echelons could not. As in any case of displayed manliness and strength of
character, I wish to express my great admiration of the writer.
The gist of the article may be summed up in one quote from it: "...
the present tendency for Civil Servants to 'play up' 0o Ministers should
No one is more disappointed than this columnist at the decline in Civil
Service morale which has occuzod in recent times* It i.s true, as the writer
states, that under present conditions it is dangerous for Civil Servants
to remain neutral to the politicking of thei. ministerial masters. It is
vory true that the present Ministers of Government seek to make Civil Ser-
vants declare their political allegiance to them "in order to secure favours
or get promotion or increments." But I would have expected that at pre-
cisely the high points in the Civil Service hierarchy where such dangled
carrots have had their greatest effect, it would have been felt and re-
dognised that by training and tradition, the Civil Servant was so infi-
nitely superior in attitude to the newcome politicians, that for the sake
of increments and other favours he would never have allowed himself to
be overcome and his principles subverted. Alas! as the article bewails$
there have been great and obvious disappointments.
I cannot agree, however, that smallness of our society can explain the
recent failure in Civil Service integrity jn this direction, particularly
at the higher levels where injury is more difficult to inflicts Our society.
is small, not only for the Civil Servant but also for the Minijters* It is
well known that small societies are often those where adherence to prin-
ciples counts most* The fact that everybody y 4nows everybody else" in a
mall society is, I submit, a reason for the maintenance among Civil Serv-
anta of an attitude of overt 'political neutrality against the day when the
"outls" become the 'in's". Not to be constantly aware of this contingency
seems to me to be taking a very short-term view of things. Thus I do not
accept the explanation offered, though I accept as facts the symptoms of
the malady described. Again, I do not agree with the statement that "the
honest Civil Servant finds himself in a dilemma" in the circumstances out-
lined. An honest Civil Servant knows what is the proper course of conduct
even though in following it he fails to secure special favours or secure
Bsecial promotions or sypeial increments. It is never so easy to deprive
a Civil Servant of his regular entitlements. In any case, as the writer
says elsewhere, "the honest Civil Servant, who dares remain neutral, may
have in4 himself a greater sense of loyalty and integrity than the avowed
supporter of a party in power", More Civil Servants should learn to regard
Civil Service virtues as,their own reward. I cannot agree more with the
writer than when he says that "it is a very' unhealthy Service that must
forever grovel before Minister- and await scraps of favour' and that "pat-
r6nage only leads to corruption".
All this is not to say that this columnist cannot appreciate the hard-
ships and difficulties which the policy bemoaned by the writer inflicts
upon the Civil Servant or the heroism called for in maintaining correct
Civil Service standards in the circumstances which have been created in
this matter by the present Government in using fear as an instrument of

'ANDROCLES (Continued from Page FTwo)
Past Governments, colonialist and popular, were content that Civil Servants
maintained overt political neutrality. Their allegiance, unless proved to be
otherwise, was assumed. No open manifestation of allegiance to the Government
was sought, neither were Civil Servants required to "play up" to Ministers or
their equivalents, except such as freely embraced this low posture" It is
true that the vague concept of "suitability" was imposed by colonialist ad-
ministrationd in evaluating Civil Servants and that many deserving Civil Serv-
ants suffered thereby. But at least their soul and manliness remained their
own while they regarded "suitability" with the contempt this concept deserved.
No effort was made to make Civil Servants "display political partisanship" or
make them "declare allegiance whether one is sincere or not".
Today, under the present Government, all this is changed. In fact things
have gone so far that top Civil Servants will no longer consort with and hardly
recognizee a person who is-openly critical of the Government even though such
person be "an erstwhile friend. They fear. to be accused by their masters of
'being on friendly terms with the masters political opponents.
.' The writer of, the article adds Ether symptoms of the malady: "in his speech
.. (-the Civil Servant) must be very, guarded lest even an academic or intellectual
discussion be misconstrued to indicate criticism of or support for one side or
another". Or else he is surroundedd by suspicion and even hostility'.,. Again,
the CivilVServant "finds himself so restricted and at such a disadvantage that
he sometimes has recourse to open defiance or crass hypocrisy" or else becomes
suspect "in the minds of some Ministers".
S In 1 .this there is a grave national loss occasioned by the action of the
Ministers. It is a loss of self-respect on the part of those Civil Servants
induced by ministerial activity to prostrate themselves before the golden calf
even as inwardly they know that' they are doing something derogatory. And the
sum total of such individual.lots of self-respect is a national loss, this
taking place precisely at the moment thatwe are.,trying to develop those atti-
tudes and qualities of self-respect and self-determination which must buttress
the edifice of nation-building. If Civil Servants, their families, their, friends,
can envision with equanimity the imposed -conditions which hpve led.to the state
of affairs so lucidly and competently outlined in the Civil Service Association
Newsletter, all I can say is that it is later than we thi nk.
"BLOOD IS .EXPENSIVE"
I have been reading quite a lot of Collins Y-.O'Neill's short stories in
your newspaper. I must need confess that. I enjoy every line of his stories
since they seem to give one the urge always to read on. For sometime now, each
paper that I buy1, the first thing I look for are O'Neill's stories. They tend
to keep me always alive and, at the end, my anxiety is always to kno~ what
he'll be coming out with next.
On the other hand, am I to assume that dther of our local writer d- not
possess that instinct so as to cope With 0'Neill's? Ftom a glance one ch .
., that O'Neill writes from a natural creative instinct which at his present rate
can indeed lead hith to sudden heights. And I suggest to attain any heights he
should study some more writing techniques.
-O'Neill's recent story, "'My Blood. is expensive", was a great treat o many
readers whom I chatted with; the only thing puzzling me for a moment was the
first stated sum of $2,000, which I finally realized was a typographical error
and should have been $200 instead. -
I should certainly like to see our local would-be writers coming down from
the shelves where they are being hidden. ROBERT ANTHONY.

Short Story- THE BIG BELLY 1MAN by Willi Dynoo
On Ash Wodnosda Joe called no and asked nm if I know a nan called "Sab"
(the patois name for sand). "Yos," I said, "maybe I know him." "Well," said
Jooe, "on Carnival Monday he was dressed like a wonan and went about singing
songs by himself; but on Tuesday,$ something was strange about him, and whore-
over he went people laughed at hin do you know why?" Well, I scratched my
hoad for a few ninutos, and then said: "No." '~tTll," Joo said, "he was not

likeof course. This-norning I saw hin passinge." "Was his stomach still
big?" I asked. "Sure." answered Joe. "Well," I said,, he nust have eaten sono-
That same afternoon, Sab was passing at Pottersvillo and sone young nen
wore laughing at hia and pelting stones at him; ho answered then back, not
looking where he was going then suddenly he bounced into a pregnant konlman
Sho began to quarrel with him, and told hinmthat he would damage her baby, but
this just mado Sab laugh, and all the time the young non wore laughing at him;
soon he was on his way again. '
The following day, he was passing near the markett, and saw a policcnan conm
ing towards him; then he thought of bouncing the officer with his big stomach.
This mado hin laugh, and, boefrc.-ho did it, he laughed even louder. The polico-
man held him by his neck.h "Al '"' he shouted, "Don't shout in ny face," the
policeman said. "Lot m go,," the man shouted, Then-the policeman punched him
on his stomach, "WaaayJ" yelled Sab, "you will danago my childJ" and after
giving a false name and.addross, he was allowed to go on his way,
Later he was soeenbathing in the river, Joe was passing, and Sab said:
"Hey boy, cone awhilee" "Here an I," said Joe. The nan said something, but
Joo didn't hear. "Como nearer then,!' said Sab. "Speakz," said Joe* "Cone and
scrub ny belly for no," said Sab. At this, Joe laughed so nuch that he slipped
off the wet stone on ahlich he stood and fell in the -ater; this tine the nan
began to laugh at Joe, who began to shiver. Just then the current began to
drag the man down. "Help nol" he cried. His stomach bounced on every tall
stone that he passed'over.t "IJowi" he roared, "my belly hurting noe" Joe thon
took pity on the nan, and ran into the river to holp hin; so after all he had
to Bcrub the big belly.
After this funny bath, Sab wont to the Calabash Inn to have a neal; he was
enjoying himself with some chicken and rice when A young lady came up to him
and said, "Sir, I think you ought to see a doctor, because it is not wise fQi a
man to be in'this terrible states and I an sure that you cannot sleep well."
"Sure, Madan," Sab said, "you are quite right; I think I will go now; thank

plenty of wat0r. Don't stay in the rays of the sun, and take some exercise
every nornihg, such as touching your toes, jumping to reach a certain mark,1 and
what have you.."
The next morning, he drank a whisky bottle full of water, then he bent and
touched his toes ton tinosl and ran and jurpcd si: tines around his yard. He
did not notice any reduction i.n the size of his stomach until the next day; it
was not nuch, but about noon the following day it had shrunk a bit, though it
was still big. A certain while later, he began'to frownm He said softly to'
himself "I'n reducing" and rubbed his sto.nach. "Poople have laughed at net

FERTILIZER. CREDIT SCHEME 1969:RaTOqiNS
The Board of Management has decided to resuscitate the Fertilizer
Credit Scheme as from 15th April, 1969 in-modified .form.
It is recognized that with the prevailing low production efficiency
the quarterly -allocations of fertilizers to growers under the Fertilizer
Subaidisation Scheme will be insufficient to satisfy the fertilizer
requirements of the vast majority of cultivations..
Therefore it. is necessary to provide growers, within the resources of
the Association, with the means of supplementing their quarterly
On the other hand, there is the huge debt of. over #150,000 outstanding
on the previous Fertilizer Credit Scheme, the greater portion of which
was incurred when that Scheme was liberalised by the removal of the down
Thereafter, a large number of growers have resorted to various methods
of evading payment such as selling their bananas on other persons names:
or transferring portions of their holdings to relations on whose names
and Selling Cards the ban.sas are then sold.
In the light of these rampant abuses, growers will understand that the
new Scheme can be operated successfully only with the most rigid safe-
guards, and that these must be strictly and universally applied.
It will be seen that the terms of repayment have been modified so that
the rate is reduced or repayment suspended in times of low prices. Such
relief to the grower is considered necessary in view of his regular
contribution of -. per lb to the Fertilizer Subsidization Scheme.
The new Scheme will apply initially only to Ratoon Mats and, will be
operated on.a UrtArery basis as it is complementary to the Fertilizer
Subsidi~ntion Scheme which is itself run on a quarterly basis, (A fur-
ther scheme for Plant Mats not eligible for assistance under any of the
