IT Is weli known, even to Secondary schoolboys (whose
sisters choose for their escorts tough guys capable of
sending Peeping Toms flying) that In the vicinity of the
Morne-Kings Hill there !trks a man with a celebrated nick-
name who likes to molest females of every age. This man
is perhaps a sexual exhibitionist; he his appeared I0 the
nude in several gardens or verandahs of the Morne vicInity
and scares or tries to handle ladies walking alone,
This in itself gives cause for alarm. But some night
ago an unidentified man broke Into the Kings Hill home of
a solitary lady and pummelled her wIth his fists when she
asked 'who are you?' and told him to go away. Thk
lady is old, true, but the man did not know that she is a
veteran of, world war I and ull of courage. She almost
gouged out one of his eyes and chased him to the front
verandah, locking the open door against him, imagine her
horror when half an hour later, lying trrpmblihg in the dark
(for the man had defused her electric fights she saw a
large shape appear before her bed, He had come back to
perascute her. When she screamed, the man put a pillow
over her head, and heaven knows what the end might have
been had not ihe dawn, enemy of the murky-minidei, sud-
denly brought eight. Into the room. The montrer ran away.
He had never uttered a word.
The police are iawre of th and other.dire Incidents.
That brave elderly lady was taken to hospital; but the one
who should be in a mentalal) hospital is the man who
inflicts Injuries on the heipless. We hope. that under
Dominica's new Superintendent Philbert of the R. D. PF.
the fellow responsible for such an outrage will be found.
watched, apprehended, and~iven treatment. Quick acston

Not long ago, a Resolution was introduced in the House of Assemby b'y the
Opposition asking Government to consider extending the Grand Bay HoeitsfJ from
its present capacity of housing 4 in-patients to a larger number. It was argued
that in so doing, accommodation at the main Princess Margaret Hospital would be
made available for the residents of other parts of the island to the extent
that persons in the populous Grand Bay area could be treated in their local
In turning down the Resolution, the Premier stated that the proposer, Hon.
Anthony Moise, was the representative for Soufriere-Pointe Michel, etc. not
Grand Bay, and therefore had no business making suggestions for improving con-
ditions in the Grand Bay area which should be done by the representative for
that area, Hon. R.P. St. Luce. The logic of this statement clearly is that if
the representative of an area does not press for improvements in his/her con-
stituency, nothing should be done for that area.
Undeterred by such a naive view of the mechanics of popular representation,
Mr. Moise at the last meeting of the House introduced a Resolution which draws
attention to the grave danger to which pedestrians are daily exposed in crossing
the Old Roseau bridge in competition with numerous vehicles and asking that
sidewalks outside of the rails of that bridge be constructed for pedestrian
According to the Premier's formula, Mr. Moise had no business drawing the
attention of the Government to this hazard to the people of Goodwill, Potters-
ville and Roseau in particular, since this bridge connects two constituencies
represented, as it happens, by two Ministers of Government Trade .and Industry,
and Communications and Works. Now it is certain that if this situation on the
Old bridge were allowed to continue much longer, a serious or even fatal accident
would be sure to occur on account of the rapidly increasing volume of wheeled
traffic. If action to avert this is now taken, the pedestrian population must
thank the representative of the South-Western Electoral District. In one of its
rare moods of reasonableness, Government accepted the Resolution. One would
certainly haye expected these two Minister-representatives to have brought this
matter to notice before Mr- Moise was given the opportunity to do so.
Not so lucky was another Resolution presented by the Opposition at the same
meeting of the House which read as follows:
"Whereas the need for a Deep Water Harbour to improve the economy of Dominica
is apparent, particularly as.regards the development of the Tourist industry
and agricultural export industries; and
Whereas successive Governments have for long recognized this need but.because
of lack of the necessary funds have not been able to cause this project to
materialize; and
Whereas the forthcoming institution of a Regional Development Bank would
appear to provide the necessary finance;
BE IT RESOLVED that Government consider obtaining the necessary loan funds
from this or any other agency and proceed at the earliest possible time to
construct a Deep Water Harbour."
Although powerfully supported by the Opposition Nominated Member, this Reso-
lution was rejected by the Government. On the ground that Government was already
giving consideration to this project, it was turned down. A deep water harbour
is a project which has been discussed by successive Governments since the 'fifties
when, because of the total absence of sources of finance, nothing could be done.
Now that it is known that a Caribbean Development Bank, largely financed by the
United Kingdom, the United States of America and Canada, is about to be established
with emphasis on the development of the infrastructures of the smaller islands,
it appeared a reasonable step to bring up this long discussed project for fresh

calling for steps to 'be taken for- constructing, a deep water ha'rbiur, what in-

out and at the same time a aapplic~i~jon .forP financing such a project is made.
, A unanimous passage. of the Resolution would -have -been- a str ondger indic'atioh.-that
all Dominica is desirous of. a deep' water: harbour than is. an application coming"
from the ruling Party.

I understand that a certain large concern operating in Dominica has made it
a condition of..employment at the middle and.higher levels that employees do not
belong to any political party. This, I consider, an outrage in'this day and age.
The prohibit-on-directly .violates the right- of association guaranteed'by
.'the. Cons'i'tution. ...
I can well understand a firm requiring. ;hat its .employees do not take an
open part in party political activities lest it suffer in business from clients
-and customers belonging to a political party, in opposition to that or those
overtly espoused by its employees. But to-deny employees, the right to enrol in
the political party of their choice is to deprive them of the fundamental right
of association. The same would apply to a prohibition against 'joining trade
unions. The Government should look into this...

Dear Mrs. Editor,..
An "Agridcultural Bxnk in the 1-niteod
States'has it s basic rule "Lend no money
to a man who's never had nud on his face
and manure on his shoes" that's the
only way one can qualify for a loan,,
This rule should also apply to our dlec-
tions in Dominica and electing our
political region.
I an a little worried & concerned
about electing a man to a position of
leadership after he has "just come out of
his gather's house.'"

It secrs to me tbat'such a leader would be unformed or uninfornmd, no deep
convictions of his own, except those inherited front his parents.
We should first give hin some time to develop his own reasoning and learning,
and that should not be at the expense of the poor people of Dorinioa.
Another oxample of the useless folly of a Governnont in p-wor; .rite to no,
Agree or Disagree.

A Short Story in Two Parts CASE OF THE MISSING GIRL By Collins F. O'Ncill
EMIMA BROKELY, agod 14, of Rancho Quenado, rcturned'to her home front the
ovehing nass at the Anglican Church at exactly 8.15 p<. She was with her
mother'and 5-year old brother, Carl. According to ,Mrs. Elvira Brokely,, her
nothor, Epma had a glass of milk at 8.30 p,.I She played with her brother for
a while and retired to bed at about 9 o-clock, At daybreak on Monday morning,
Mrs. Brokely noticed that RWna was missing. She checked the lavatory and
-other possible places in the house where Enna could have been, Though Emma
did not usually sneak out of bed that early even to-visit relatives or friends,
Mrs. Brokely decided to nake her final check with sono of her closest relatives.
StiLl Eiima was not -found, She then telephoned Emmals father (working at
Portsmouth) and enquiredd whether she was there. Without a word, he hung up
the receiver and in an hour's time was in Rancho,. He aIrived in time to wipe
the tears that had just began to flow down Mrs, Br6kelyls oheeks.
"Don't worry too nuch, honey," Brokely told hor, "I donrt feel Erma's in any
danger." He was courageous."' "When did you niss hoe?"
'We wont to bed together," replied Mrs. Brokdly, "but when I awoke this
morning she was not in bed,"
"You checked with your relatives?"
"Yes, dear. I checked every possible place whore I thought she 'night have
"About the doors and doorknobs, have you touched up anything?"
"I searched the lavatory and the bathroom; t-hose doorknobs I did turn,".
"But did you open the door to the living roon?"
"No,, Dave," she replied thoughtfully.
"How about the windows?" Brokely continued.
"No, Dave. I did'hot touch anywhere else.' And as you know the door to the
living roon is never kept closed, except the external doors,"
"Good, Elvira," Brokely addressed his wife, "keep the whole place closed up
still." Brokely then walked over to the telephone and dialled 'zero, zero, ono,
neo, please....Ill like to make a person to person call to private detective
Jack Thornhill in Portspnuth....*......" Within a 'ouple of minutes the
private detective was on the line.
Brokely relaxed as .ho heard the voice on the other end roplying "Thornhill
"Look, Thornhill, this is David Brokely of Rancho QuLnado. I want to
retain you in a very oitical matter in which my daughter is involved"
Brokely said excitedly, "You'll be doing me a favour in rushing in to 2ancho
right away, I'll pay you every cent you ask."
The private detective explained that he was deeply engaged in a very impor-
tant matter-in Portsmouth and wab unable to represent hima suggesting that he
contact other local representatives, But after Brokoly had offered to pay him
twice his day's earnings at Portsmouth, he finally decided to rush in to
Racho to interview him.
Detective Jack Thorn'iill showered all sorts of pertinent questions on the'
couple and got just the oeact preliminary answers that he needed. Moanwhiloe

"You seo, Dave, ny. opinion is that in some way or other your child was kid-
ntappa' Som your hone during sleeping hours. She might also have been crimin-
ally assaulted; that, we do not know but have to find out and the sooner the

Brokely turned awayf.,frowned as'if a'sorpent had left its sting in his heart,
then suddenly declared, '"Thornhill, this may sound dacm nasty You don't assume
that Enna was pregnant and the i.ller realizing thero was::no way out .after -

kidnapping and getting rid of her. At least Enna was 14. Though that is.too
much of an early age to get started at, you must reneboer that it is the age of
"I appreciate your ingenuity, Dave," Thornhill said,,,but it is not a detective%
business to assume anything. One thing that baffles no'is that I have examined
all the windows and doors and they are well closed. I give exception to the door
you used* I have chocked the doorknobs for fingerprints but there is no
indication."'The detective then pounced down on a chair where he Sat pensively
for a nonent. He stood up again, said, "I'm moving into' the village now; nean-
wlilo should there be anything startling just keep it quiet and play it safeo,
I'll be back in half an hour."
Thornhill took his first trip into the village, driving in an old Chevrolet
car.. There he gathered thattMrs. Brokely had spoken to a'certain man about some
noney business about the sae' day Enna was killed, Later, he received informa-
tion front a certain woman that Mrs. Brokely had asked her to accompany her to a
village called Soufriere but that she was unable to do so. Thornhi4l in conso-
quonce drove down to Soufriero where he was convinced that Mrs. Brokoly really
did pay a courtesy call on an old friend of the family naoed Pa Fredc But this
piece of information did not actually get him any place, and he regarded all teo
information he had up to the moment as 'trash l He returned to Rancho, where he
obmbed the seaside for clues. About fifty yards from the Brokely's along tbh '
boach he picked up a child's dress which was ripped right down the front-.of it,
near to which was a dirty handkerchief with the embroidered initials D.W* Being
sonowhat confident that the information he now needed was rightly there in the
village, he decided to dig for relevant clues, buit first question the cinema fans
who night have returned late front the movies on Sunday night. One young man said
he was in company with his fiancee when (some fifty yards away) he heard scream-.
ing sounds coming from the direction of the beach not too far frqm the
house. It was near midnight,s he said.
"Did you not think it oxpedient to contact the police inmediately?" asked the;
"I'could not." the young man said, "I thought'soom parent was spanking a
child,, so it was not necessary to raise an alarm." .
Detective Thornhill before returning to the house for his lunch drove in to the
city. He presented his Identification Badge to a Banik Manager who (after chatting
with him for a whild) assured him that Mrse Brokcly-had opened a'now account some
hours ago and lodged a cheque for an unusually large. sum .of ,poney. With this bit
of evidence he returned for his lunch at the Brokboy's. Hle sat before the table
but could not eat, since what he'had up his sleeve aas bothering him to such an
extent that he threw on his coat, telling Mr. Brokely that he was going to
organise a party to drag the soa where the dress and the handkerchief were found.
Tho sea there was finally dragged, but not even tho murder weapon was found. Ho
was convinced though that if Enna was not alive her body, was not in the sea at
that point.
"Dave," said Thornhill, "you would not expect.:ho'body of a human being to
ronain at the bottom of the sea'if the sea was rough, would you?"
"You have a good point there," replied Brokely, "if the sea was rough I expect
the body would float'to some other shore. But we have hoon having calm waters
for several days now."
Still dissatisfied with his progress, Thornhill'drove back to Portsmouth and
returned later in the ovohing with his trained dog-, Pappit. Pappit first smelled
its way into the bath room which indicated that the culprit or culprits had been
into the bath zoon, naybe with or without the .girl.

ChI~DpInq, Domin icy St.Lucia
St. Lucia suffered an innings de.
feat in the first Goodwill series'
match against Dominia. icn..uags -.
Taking advantage of a docile pace
attack, the Dominica openers (Kentish
and E1win) set about their task gal-
lantly and piled up 81 runs before
Elwin went by the run-out route for
42; Kentish we nt soon afterwards -
caught at the wicket off Reyes for t3
39. Shillingford and John continued
'grandstyle and put on 43 before John
fell to M. Francis for 16.Shilling-
-ford Was joined by Williams and they
put on 68 runs before Shillingford,
who had been batting so stylishly,
was out to a beautiful catch by Cenac
off Francis for 61, giving the 16-
year-old bowler his second wicket.
Williams was joined by Zamore and the
two batted'-splendidly Dominica acca.
ing the excellent total of 358. *
Zamore got a fine 72, Williams 35,
Norbert Phillip a hard-hitting 40
and K. Laurent 25. Felix.aas the most
successful St. Lucia bowler with 4
for 74, Reyes 3 for 67 and Francis
2 for 112.
When St. Lucia batted, Cenac and
Polius saw the score to 37 before
Polius was caught by Zamore off Phil-
lip for 17. Tis was the first of 4
brilliant catches which Zamore held
this innings Cenac was leg before- to
Phillip for '0 as:wickets began to
tumble. Joupt went for a duck, Maur-
icette for A, Alfred for 9 and Fran-
-cis for fqur, things were at a. stand
-still for a while as Quintyn made a
bold attempt to stop the rampage with
a docile knock of 29,-and Reyes (who
hit out boldly)for 31. Felix hit a
brilliant 30 which included three
sixes and three fours, and St.Lucia
were all out for 171. Laurent got
4 wickets for 68, Phillip 3 for 48
and J.G.Josephs 2 for 42.
Asked to follow-on and needing
another 188 runs to save an innings'
defect, St. Lucia again began badly
with only Cenac offering token resis-
tance to score 42. He got fine support
from Alfred (who scored 39) and from
'Qintyn (24 N.O.) St. Lucia were
all-out for 170; thus losing by an
innings and 18 runs. Laurent fin-
ished with 5 for 43 and Zamore three
for 28. (concluded next column)

Visit of Commonwealth Sec.-General:
Mr. Arnold Smith, whose father was
born in Grenada, said that rade
relations and the gap between rich
and poor nations would be the future
/major problems of the Commonwealth.
He thought- that the Commonwealth
would be 6f. increasing significance
in decades ahead: it was stronger
today because it comprised a cross-
section of mankind.(Trinidad) ****
The Council of Europe has called for
a ban on all arms to Nigeria & Biafra.
***Half the cyclists in a cross-coun-
try Iron Curtain race had their tyres
punctured by tin-tacks while crossing
Czechoslovakia. *** Bloody racial
violence between Malays mO-Chbnena
this week in Malay8jand is still going
on. The strain is reported lessening.
***Dr. Philip Blaiberg, World's long-
est surviving heart transplant pat-
ient, was taken back to hospital in
Groot Schur hospital, Capetow. ***
The St. Kitts representative to CPA
gathering in Antigua complained that
too much time was spent talking about
Anguilla, not enough time on the sit-
.ation of the Associated States. *
In London, further talks must be held
*next week on,Anguilla, since all eff-
orts by Michael Stewart-& Whitlock to
get Mr.fBradshaw to come to terms over
the Anguilla problem have so far
reached deadlock. Meanwhile in Jam-
aica, Mr. Ronald Webster continues to
demand separation from St. Kitts. *
Referring to aid from Britain, he said
