Pae Two THE STAR Spturday, October 25, 196,


Much has been written in the West Indian press about the case, ahd kindred
cases, of Dr. Thomas, Lecturer in Economics at the Mona Campus of the University
of the West Indies, and of his expulsion or exclusion from Jamaica by the Govern-i
ment of that country for reasons which have not been divulged. The similar case
of Dr. Rodney is also being cited by some critics to show that the political
atmosphere in Jamaica is inhibitory of academic freedom. Incidentally, it is
as; well to note from the outset that both Dr. Rodney and Dr. Thomas are Guyanese
and Mr early reflection is: why does the dice fall on both occasions on Guyanese?
Is it mere co-incidence?
Since we have no information about the reasons which led the Jamaica Govern-
ment to declare these two Guyanese non grata, the best we can say is that the
Government of Jamaica may or may not be justified in their action. I do not
think we can with reason say any more. For there are circumstances in which the
action may be justified and there are those in which it is an incursion upon
individual freedom. Those of us who live in Dominica know that within the past
few years we have experienced both kinds justified and unjustified acts of
expulsion of non-Dominicans.
To my mind the Bobby Clarke expulsion was perfectly justified. The fact that
it was done later than it should have been, due to unworthy considerations, does
not affect the justification of the act. For had Bobby Clarke's activities been
allowed to continueL violence and perhaps wcz' would have in due course been
the result of his secret preachments to our unsophisticated "submerged tenth".,
This is, of course, not to say that every effort should not be made to raise
the levels of this unfortunate section of the population, but one cannot admit
that every means towards that end is proper. On the other hand, the Cadenas
expulsion was quite improper and was an attack upon freedom. Decent people have
never been satisfied that this was a case for expulsion. In a small country
leakage is inevitable and the true reasons always come to be known. That the
one was British and the other not, mgkes not the slightest difference to the
strength of the argument.
If, therefore, in small Dominica we have in the space of two years encountered
both justified and unjustified expulsions (both British and non-British), it is
not difficult to imagine that much larger Jamaica must also be experiencing both
types. That is why I say that we cannot make a reasoned cape for or against the
Jamaica expulsions since the facts have been carefully withheld. Once again I
stress that the power of expulsion can be grossly abused. In this connection
I agree that British Caribbean Governments should, save in the most exceptional
circumstances, give their reasons for expulsion when this occurs. They are, how-
ever, constitutionally under no obligation to justify their acts of expulsion.
So it is quite possible that the Jamaica Government was justified in the expulsion
of Drs. Rodney and Thomas, non-Jamaicans, but it is equally possible that these
expulsions were not justified.
But among those who feel that the action taken was not justified, certain
arguments are advanced which I find it impossible to accept.
There is first the argument or at least the implication that an academic
is entitled-to enjoy, in the holy name of academic freedom, more immunity from
the application of a law than the rest of us mortals. We must reject the view
with the contempt it deserves. No one not even the first citizen of the land -
is entitled to greater legal privileges than any other, even the most humble.
That such an argument can come from circles which it is usual to label"intellectuaL--
is the more surprising. There cannot be two norms of freedom one for intellectuals
and another for non-intellectuals. In fact one must consider the mere idea pre-
sumptions in the extreme.
Academic freedom is not curtailed by as I suspect is the Jamaica reason,
for what it is worth preventing an academic from propagating social and
economic doctrines which all other persons are prohibited from propagating.

ANDROCLES (Continued from Page Two)
There may be some bit of reasoning in the argument that no one should be pro-
hibited from propagating any social, economic or political doctrine, however
harmful to community peace or however potentially productive of violence. But
that University Lecturers anly should be able to do so with impunity is a view
which cannot be accepted in this democratic age. If it were otherwise, subversion
would only have to don the academic gown (and there are many qualified to do so)
to carry on its activities with impunity.
Another argument advanced by those who feel that the University Lecturers
have been wrongly-treated is that such action against the nationals of other
British Caribbean States does not make for regional integration. I find it
difficult to take this reasoning seriously. If an existing law is broken, parti-
cularly by one well aware of the prescribed penalties, what has the nationality
of the offender to do with the matter? After all, Jamaica like Guyana, is a
sovereign State and .if it considers, let us say, subversion a serious thing,
it cannot allow persons whose home is in another State to freely practise sub-
version. The consequences feared, if they do come to pass, must be at the cost
and expense of, in this case, Jamaica. In all.the Caribbean countries, if a
citizen of any other so persistently misbehaves himself or becomes a charge on
the host country, such a person is deported to his country of origin. Why not
in the case of what the host country considers subversion?
It is also attempted to ague that since there exists great disparity of r.
wealth in Jamaica, the "anti-intellectual" attitude is an attempt to keep
things as they are. This, too, is an unworthy argument. From all over the
British Caribbean, it is to Jamaica that welfare workers go to learn how to try
and raise levels among the-more depressed classes. It is true that the social
situation in Jamaica is as stated, but there are more positive ways of trying
to correct the imbalance than by subversion. And patriots like Manley and Busta-
mante have devoted their lives to doing just that. Again, it cannot in truth be
said that Jamaicans, especially of the ruling class, are anti-intellectual.
There is no West Indian State where intellectualism is more vigorously cultivated
.than in Jamaica. This, of course, is not saying that education is more widespread
in Jamaica than in any other British Caribbean State. This would not be true.
Is it, therefore, only mere co-incidence that both expelled Lecturers are
Guyanese? It is hardly likely that Guyana for her population produces many more
University Lecturers per unit of population than some other States of the area.
My aon view is that in the common nationality of both Lecturers lies the expla-
nation of the problem. For, let us not forget it, Guyana is the only British
Caribbean State with a political party affiliated to the Comintern. This is
presently unthinkable for other States in the area.

uasnmaiian M.P. Visita: Hon.Lloyd.
Carins, Leg.-Go. Member from the
Australian island province of Tas-
mania (26 thousand square miles),
came up to Dominica from the C.P.A.
meeting in Trinidad. He said he was
"most surprised. there was no dele-
gate from this area there" and ans-
wered a question on the WHY of his
visit: "I 14ke going to country
places where other people don't go."
During a CPA meeting called at short
notice, with the usual welcome and
thank-you speeches followed by re-
freshments, discussion revealed that
Carins MP was an Independent -there
are several in Tasmania, and the
whole Upper House, with one except-
ion, is Independent. There is one
woman M.P., Labour (anti-Viet Nam

war); the Liberals ruling Party -
sUpport the war; independents vote
like individualists. Mr. Carins said
that Assoc.Members of Tasmania's CPA
had no vote in the set-up, but he
could not recall that they paid any
dues. Govt. & Opposition CPA members
took turns in going to Britain on
courses each year, and his Govt. set
aside between $1-2 m. in the estimates
for CPA use. CONSERVATION was one ca
the major topics. There are several
National Parks in Tasmania, and great
argument occurred over a hydro-electric
plant usurping some of that land. He
reckoned it took over 90 years to
grow back trees there chopped for tim-
ber. He reckoned the CPA T/dad meet-
ing proved that groupings in the Com-
monwealth were on regional-economic

Polycarp the Magnificent
There's been a lot of discussion
about Dom Can Timbers lately, Perso4-
ally I don't care if they cut down
every tree in Dominica, if they flutter
our electricity supply, or if they go
broke. BUT what I do object to is the
fact that they can straddle our main
highway, partly block it with wood
planks and machinery, and reduce what
remains to a sea of mud and potholes'.
Just why are they allowed to get away
with it? When Whitchurch's attempt a
few girders slightly on the footpath,
the result is lawsuits, and removal of
the girders. It seems a great pity tha
Dom Can is not under the jurisdiction
of at least somebody.
The news of the last few weeks has
set me thinking; there's one group who
want to make a huge national park here,
there's another group for black power;
my idea is to combine the two and make
Dominica one big National Park, we all
wear Afro dress and build some big war
canoes with which to go out and greet
tourists. We can let loose a few im-
ported lions, tigers, and monkeys up
in the high country and spread rumours
of strange voodoo rites etc. etc.
Naturally all the tourists will be
bursting to come and see, and we all
get rich and don't work any more.
If this idea doesn't work, my other
inspiration is to declare war on the
U.S.A. This way we get lots of attent-
ion, and lots and lots of foreign aid!
It needn't be a very big war, we could
just shoot a few Peace Corps or kidnap
some rich tourists...the fine points
could be easily worked out, they
couldn't attack us with Atomic missiles
because we being in-between Guadeloupe
and Martinique, a near-miss would mean
reducing France s outre mere depart-
Lastly I would like to tell of the
miracle I just personally witnessed...
a gang of men were actually repairing
the holes in the road in Cork street
just by Karam's garage; believe or not.
I hope it doesn t damage his repair

Short Story THE BOY by..'Cynthia Watt
A cool breeze blow through the Gardens, and the stands being erected for
the cricket tournanont were fairly advanced.
There was the sound of hannmlc on wood; the chirping of birds; a stray kid-
goat wandered aimlessly around; the voices of school-children near by drifted
on the breeze. A few co.7s rolled along, and on the turf of the cricket-Ground
a man was carefully sprinkling the green with a water-hose, whistling cheerily
all the while.
The sun poured its slanting rays through the leafy branches, casting the
Gardens into shad'eand shine.
In the distance, the church-tower suddenly tolled, and the sound--adsal.l d
that in the nidst of life we are in death.
"Writing something again?"
I looked over ny shoulder and there stood the boy. I had not h0ord his
barefoot tread on the grass. He carried sandals in one thin hand.
"Yes," I answered.
He cane nearer, looking with interest at my open manuscript.
"What about?"
"Oh," I replied,, "I'm just collecting my thoughts."
"Like you collect butterflies?"
"Yes." I sAiled. -
"But you were wr:itingJ" he insisted.
I smiled again. "Just jotting down' a few notes."
He squatted down beside ne, and began to whistle softly.
The sound of the hammer had now ceased and the school children had gone to
thoir class-toors. The chirping birds and the whistling boy were the only
sounds heard,s along with the rustling leaves and the sighing of the wind in
the trees.
Suddenly; "Why don't you write about me for a change?"
I must have looked very nuch surprised, for he stopped his whistling and
looked at ne defiantly.
"What's wrong with no that you can't write about 'n?" he questioned
childishly. "Aron't I good enough to write about? Must I have a clean shirt
and pants, socks and shiny shoes, and well-conbod hair to be a good-enough
My laughter cane impulsively, for he had'started whistling and again
stopped* Yes, my laughter cane impulsively, for I HAD been scribbling a few
lines about hip. He was an impish-looking boy; his clothes was a nodern-day
counterpart of Huckleberry Finn's. He always appeared in the Gardens whenever
I wds writing in'my chosen retreat a smooth grassy ar3a surrounded by four
hugo leafy trees, several shrubs, and a young bamboo grove. I had with no ny
writing paraphernalia, a bag of sandwiches and a big flask filled with hot
rdlk or Ovaltine or tea.
It was a pleasant spot ... always cool, thanks to the four great trees
whose.branches sheltered ne from the direct rays of tho sun. I would settle
down on the smooth grass with a deep sigh of relief-and content, for it'was
good to get away front the ceaosless chattering of' m sister Claire, who, though
a thzrougS"2 'cordon blo6 cook, and a wonderful housokoeper, could act the par-
rot with her'constant p:attling e Here I could sotle6 down with content, relec
for a 'spell, enjoy ny solitude, then begin to write. I was only a snall-time
author, but somehow my-books brought in a regular income on which I could live
at ease. I had a colf5rtable hone, a second-hand car and six good acres of
land out in the countryside, where I had a four-roooed shack near a rippling
stroan. There I spent ny week-ends: hunting, fishing, reading, then relaxing
- for two whole days.
During the week I spent nost of my time in my nook scribbling away accord-
ing to th, nood; and suddenly, as if from nowhere, the boy would appear. He
second to me to be ry "writing guardian angel," for all the stories, .articles;
and poens which I wrote when he was around inevitably turned out to be the
best. It was almost a yoar since I had first cone -across him in the GardLons
he would suddenly appear, squat besdie nom asking questions, pointing out this
and that around the Gardens, giving his own decided viows about then.

I guossed his ago to be about seven. If he saw anyone approaching our "nook"
ho would hastily shoo them off,
"Don't you see ny friend is busy writing? It disturbs him when people are
around," he would tell thca.
"'Ohol" an intruder told hin once, "is that so? Then what are you doing around
The boy's face was scornful as he replied
"I'm his special." Thus' my selfappointed mascot kopt guard over mo. But thp
nost funny thing about our acquaintance was that neither one knew the other's
nao. To hin I was simply "fy. friend," and to me'he was simply "the boy."
After a spell of relaxation, I1d begin my writing. Then the boy would sit
quietly waiting till I was through; sometimes when I raised my head at last, it
gavo'mn quite a start to see hin sitting there, his kncos hunched under his
chin, his hands clasped around'then, eyes absorbed on 'y manuscript. hon he
saw that I had stopped 'writing, he would run to my lunch-bag and we both would
have a sandwich or two and a glass of whatever wo had in the Thermos. (I al-
ways brought a spare cup along for him after our first notingg)
There was a standpip sbone distance away,, and there he would wash our cups
meticulously and bring then to ne to put away,
"Ilve washed thonm"hold say*-
"UTmn" I'd exclaii,. "aren't they cleanly"
This Was our daily rituall.and after the cups were stowed away in my 3iather
hold-all, we would stretch out contentedly on the grass, our arrs under pur
heads, silently enjoying an hour's rest,
The falling leaves rustled crisply over us; butterflies flitted around;
'beautiful bird-chorus filled the Gardens with riotous .melo.dy; the dappled
shadow-lengths of the sun made a rainbow tapestry on the green grass that de-
fied description; the wind whistled softly through the branches of the trees,
and the leaves rippled caressingly on the breath of the wind.
Sometimes I dozed off, but the boy always lay awake (Ca I found out later).
Today, drifting back fror the depths of a restful slumber, I saw him, elbows on
grads, eyes clued in an up-side down book and smiling to himself.
Hot wanting to startle hin, I coughed discreetly. To my astonishment~, he
barely second to have heard, but turning towards me said:
"You awake ?"
"Yes," I replied, "And you?"
"Mol" he exclaimed as if the thought was too ridiculous for words.
"I don't sleep when you sleep. Who would look after your things? Think I'd
lot- omsono run off with your books and sandwiches and iilk?" Then changing his
tone, "you slept a long while; want soothing to oat now?" The way he said it
made oe -feel somehow that hoewas hungry, so I turned'to hin and said:
"O.K. nate, let's have it. You must be hungry too."
He smiled ruefully and patted his stomach, "I-ty old- inside' s rumbling."
Suddenly a thought cane to ne; who was he? Ho.didn't soon to attend'school,
Io one ever came to find out his whereabouts, ..H simply' cae and went, just
liko that. Of course,, our entire time in the Gtdons was about four hours, but.
surely, I thought, someone should be anxious about his absence during that tineJ
I was:now very curious as to his background,.
Rnhat's your nanc?" I asked him.
"Bin." The name exploded out of his mouth, and the sound inadvertently ro-
ninded ne of a gun shot. Bin/ The nano sounded familiar, but for the life of
no. I couldn't recall whore Itd heard it. Bini ... so familiar, yet elusive...
When I returned. home I found ny sister Clairo in a very ill-humour indeed.
"That Bin againJ" she said in an exasperated voice,, "I just don't know what
to doj"
Ty- eyebrowsos automatically climbed an inch higher. "Bin? which Bin?"
Claire put down the bowl of flour with a 'thunp on the kitchen table, and put
her hand to her foreheod.
"Great GodJ you don t'nman there's another Bin?" She sat down abruptly oi a
chair.. "Jumping Johosophat,. I :ean that odious ono-linbod creature of Smtan,
Oh no., if there's anotacr, I'll go stark, staring n'adJ
She rose and went o t into the kitchen garden. ..

"An Organ is a curious miXtureo
Part music and part architecture.
Its structural significance
Loads to the fugue, and not the
In describing the manipulation and
function of various musical instru-
nents, the organ is often left out al-
togoether. The reason for this omission,
is perhaps a feeling not altogether un-
justified, that the Organ is not an in-
strunent in the ordinary'sense. With
its four or so keyboards, its thousand
pipos,"its scores of tabs and knobs and
pedals, it power to stimulate a whole
orchestra as well as each individual
instrulnnt, its space-filling propen-
cities, and itas onumnntal effects -
all this weighed against the snall fi-
guro at the console one gets the ideal
that if an instrumon' is involved, nan
is the instrurnAnt, The pipe organ
plays on hin.
But in truth the organ is a wind in-i
strument, The Scottish used to nmll it
a "chest of whistles" and they wore not
far off. If it is also aniintegral
part of architecture of infurnerable
churches and concert'halls', it it can
outsound a waterfall, outweigh whole
carloads of orchestra,, and take months,
to build, it still rna1ks nusic only be-
cause some human bciig, his' hands and
foot obeying impulses of his heart, can
extract beauty front inanimiato-keys*
The Organ started with. pan's pipes a
row of hollow roods bound together
roughly to forn a scale and sounded di-
rectly by the breath, Later a wind
chest and bellows wore added, and this
continues todaOy, to be the basic prin-
ciple of the organ. Of course little
boys are no longer lured away from
their swizning holes to pump organs on
a Sunday morning, and organists don't
come down with their fists-on the key&
as they had to on the un-~ioldly instru-
nonts of the Middle Ages. Now air is
fanned into the organ's ~ungs by elec-
tric motors and the sound is released
by the ncrost touch on the keyboard,
An'organ today actually consists of
five separate organs; the groat, the
swell, the choir, the solo, and the
pedal. Each has its separate keyboard;
