P TTE STAR, a d Nvb 1 i6


CONTRASTS by Androcles
By the time this appears, debate will already have taken place on a most
interesting Motion being presented by the Parliamentary Opposition at a meet-
ing of the House of Assembly called for 13th November. The subject-matter of
the Motion relates to the Sunday Island Port Authority (SIPA) scheme. At the
same meeting Government will move the adoption of a Bill to repeal the legis-
lation which created SIPA and so in effect boidgnas thit trojeCt' ti oblivion.
The Motion being offered by the Opposition refers to the letter from solicitors,
interested in SIPA's future, Messrs. Coburn & Coburn of U.S.A., which was pub-
lished in another section of the local press and which threatens civil action
against the Dominica Government for what it alleges is a breach of the Agreement
entered into between SIPA and the Government of Dominica. The Motion resolves
that in order to avert any such civil action which may be costly to Dominica,
but more particularly since SIPA has passed to new management, the Government
should re-enter into negotiation with a view to salvaging the scheme which has
so much importance for Portsmouth in particular and the economy of Dominica in
general. The Motion adds and implies that since so much ineptness was demonstrated
by Government in negotiating the original Agreement, the Leader of the Opposition
should be invited to nominate for appointment on the team to undertake the re-
negotiation a person who in his opinion would strengthen such team. An implied.
additional reason for this particular requirement is recognition of the fact
that in any long-term national step involving valuable national resources, the
Dominica approach should be bi-partisan and representative of all Dominica.,
That one more bgrutiny by a stbhenganegotiatihgteat should bea-ndneratake
ih: matter which once promised so much for the local economy is not a step to
be lightly dismissed. And yet, writing this on 7th November, I am prophesying
that the Government will use its big majority to kill the Notion. It will be of
particular interest to see how the Member for Portsmouth votes in this matter.
The irony of the whole thing, however, is that the Government has in the
past suggested that Opposition was opposed to the successful emergence of SIPA,
and this was played up to the people of Portsmouth. Today it is the Opposition
asking the Government to stay its hands and make one more try for the benefit
of Portsmouth. Belatedly the people of Portsmouth will know who's who.


In the course of a very able, and frank, sermon delivered at the Roseau Cathe-
dral by Father Alexander on the occasion of the National Day celebrations, he
made a remark which sent me further enquiring and which I am now able to pass
on to readers.
Father Alexander was expressing the hope that the State authorities would
accept in the spirit in which it was made the offers of co-operation from the
Church in the material welfare of the people of Dominica. This remark sounded
a bit strange to me. I could not imagine the State turning down any offer of
assistance in the material sphere, least of all from the Church to which the
overwhelming majority of the people of Dominica belongs.
Yet, upon enquiry, I gather that Fr. Alexander was alluding to offers made
by the Church authorities for co-operating in providing increased educational
facilities for the children of Dominica, One such offer was to set up a primar:r
school in Roseau for boys, particularly those who do not at the moment attend
any school and are in imminent danger of becoming delinquents. The proposal wes
for the Christian Brothers who now run St. Mary s Academy to undertake the
management of this boys primary school much in the same spirit and after th;.
pattern of Sister Borgia s famous St. Martin school for girl. This offer wa's
turned down by the Government authorities some time ago.
One must consider this a most unfortunate step by the authorities of Govern-
ment. It puzzles me when I try to imagine on what grounds such an offer can be
refused when I see the hordes of boys of school age roaming the streets anui
open spaces of the city during school hours. Nho would not grasp at any ofier to
try and solve this problem? Yet, as in so many other(thiu-ps, ruth apuns:&BLIIranger
than fiction. (Continued on Page Four)

Prince Philip certainly started a
lot of talk when he gave a televis-
ion interview in NBC's 'Meet the
Press',. recorded when he was in
Washington last week to meet Pres-
ident Nixon.
According to BBC news, the Duke said
that the Royal Family is sorely
pressed financially, and "we may
have to move into smaller premises -
who knows," He declared that royal
allowances had not changed for 18
years and expenses were very high.
The idea of abdication was denied
by the Duke, but one report said
he talked around it, saying: "it
has its attractions I am not sure
-that the advantages outweigh its
disadvantages.

ANDRQCLES (CONTINUED fhcn Pae Two)
How naive some people can bel One writer in the -local press in an apparent
reference to the Policy Statements issued by the Opposition Party considers them
"disjointed and ainnxplete" because they do not, in regard to the items of
economic development,'spell out the input/output relationships of the factors
of production involved; do not set out projections of future supply and demand;
do not outline the relative proportions of carrot and stick to be used in pro-
moting economic development. Mind you, in a Policy Statement!
My dear chap, a.Policy Statement means exactly what the two words connote -
as Humpty Dumpty would say, neither more nor less and a policy statement is
not a programme or a model. Is nt it strange that your amateurish parade of
economic terms and concepts (clearly taken straight from textbooks and publications
of the economically more sophisticated societies) is not made to relate to your
favourite Government's Economic Development Plan which, it must be presumed,
exists after its 9 years in office, rather than expect it of the short and
sudcinct Policy Statements issued by the Opposition Party? The writer is typical
of that breed which will not see the wood for the trees and is--morei.concernsd!ith
semantics than with getting things done.


. .


I was much interested to hear the Governor in his address at the National Day
rally stress the need for national unity. In a more negative way this idea
featured in the Premier's address.
One must be glad for this accent, belated though it be. But exhortation, like
charity, begins at home and because of this we invite the speakers to recall who
has been stressing in recent years: (a) North vs. South; (b) rich vs. poor;
(c) town-born-and-bred vs. country-born-and-bred; (d) black vs. white vs. brown
vs. Carib?
It is the Governor's duty to appeal for unity, but we should have preferred
someone other than the Premier to second the notion.

Dear Madam Editor,. ..-
BRING BOXING BACK
Reflecting way back to the past on
sporting activities here in Dominica,
I.could recall the time when Boxing
was very much in the linclight.. It
was very much encouraging at the tine
to see our local boys in the boxing
arena and I think (as rany will agree
with mn) that if such boxing had con-
tinued, our boys would have nuch to
offer by now.
I an of the opinion that many a box-
ing fan would be thrilled to see our
boys back on the scene to display
their colours; also to soc nany young
bloods stopping forward,
Where is Promoter PIjI with his
toan bearing such names as Kid Flito,
Rockey'Marcolus, Sugar Boy Ross,. Young
D-orsot, Easy Boy Francis, Kid Moore
naid Cuty-Pie Derrick? Pleaso bring
bO= Boxing back to life

(This letter was received on Monday
morning, before the broadcast by Mr.
Eric Scaloy was hoard. It shows how
sporting minds think alike.)

'bout a nonth ago? Well, sonmone has

,1 Th6 fastest runner in history, he

2. Adan was born at noon. INo.
The bible: Adan was born just before
Eve (evening).
3. Chancer: Camels took the' nost and
least into Noah's Ark. No.
The Bible: The elephant took most
because he carried a trunk. The fox
and cock took least because they had
only a comb and brush between them.
4. Chancer: The greatest actor in the
Bible was Christ. Not quite.
The Bible says: Sanson; he brought
down the house.
5. The difference between a scoring ma-
chine and a kiss, vwritos the Chancer,
is this: There's nore work in a sewing
machine, though both are love No.

and a sowing nachino sews scans nice.

The 1st Prize Winning Poem of National Day Contest:
OUR DEAREST LOVS by Annie M.J. Emmanuel

Do you remember our first encounter?
I rather felt than saw you then.
My eyes were tightly shut
as I felt your breath
against my tiny shrivelled body.
I tightened my fists and yelled.
Oh? how I almost burst my lungs.
That was the welcome you gave me, Dominicab
After the warmth of a womb
you greeted me with coldness,
But that coldness was the heralding
of the love which would blossom between us.
A love which would make me
swear to you a loyalty beyond bounds.
I remember those early days
when in my cradle
you never ceased to awaken me
with the kiss of a sunbeam.
The unforgotten pleasure of my tiny fingers
burrowing into your soil.
I would rather be united with you
than lay clean and spotless
in a wooden cradle.
My elders failed to comprehend our strange attraction.
But how would they know
that when I was lonely
you sent
A choir of birds to delight my ears and
lovely butterflies to pantomime
gaily around me,
Growing up with you was wonderful.
That nostalgic memory of my lean body
plunging nude and brown into your waters.
The springs of your bosom refreshed me -
and I was contented.
I lay within your cool waters
look up at your great green mountain curtains
and say: "This is my inheritance".
But then, my dearest love
came the greatest shock of my life:-
Going to school and finding
that you had other loves........
You had betrayed me.
How could you deal me such a terrible blow.
I looked at the faces around me and
They all were happy.
They all loved you.
All had had the same wonderful experiences with you
Oh! I was desolate'.
But in that desolation came a new revelation:-
You are vast and dense and beautiful.
Alone, I was helpless to protect you
Alone, I could not embrace the whole of you
Alone, I could not love you enough.
So, your other loves and I joined forces.
Neither jealous of the other
Each seeing in the other
a reflection of beauty and love.
In great numbers we detoured
from school and restricted learning
To lose ourselves within your famous botanical gardens.
Those meetings with you were enchanting.
There, in the quietness of your colourful richness
we learnt to love each other






- i \,
to share the discoveries of your fauna and flora.
Empire Days and Federation Days
All found us: singing praises to you
But who would know that we
The young ones, had more reason to sing loudly
Rain or shine of our loyalty to you.
A loyalty which you had
stealthily donned upon us
During the days you harboured us
within your bosom.
Are we jealous of your many alien admirers?
NO'. We take pleasure
in seeing them marvel at your grandeur
Lips. apart and eyes agog,
they stare bewitched
Oh Dominica! what strange powers do you possess.
Why do all who gaze upon you become ensnared
by your beauty.
Today, we do not meet
as bodies eager to seek pleasures from you,
But instead, we gather to discuss your welfare.
Your past we ponder upon
Your future we hopefully plan and await.
Of Government and parties we are unconcerned.
Our differences are dimmed
By the knowledge that we all
Regardless of religious, social, political or cultural belief
have at some time or other
been with you stood nude before you and enjoyed
Your music, sunshine, rain and volcanic splendour
We are the proudest and most honourable people
of the world.
For ohL so many of us take pride in saying
"I am from Dominica in the West Indies".
To mention a few of your qualifications you are:-
"The Gem of the Antilles"
"Cinderallla of the Caribbean"
"The Sleeping Giant"
"Land of sparkling rivers and lofty mountains"
Oh Land where the palm trees sway,
words cannot embrace your beauty.
For only eyes can see and hearts can feel
Your natural splendour.
You are unique.
You are magnificent.
Dominica:...magic word that make old folks reminisce with
Young ones treasure wonderful memories. nostalgia
Should Columbus return today
he would fall in love with you a second time around.
He would see in you a mature beauty
richer than that which he saw on Sunday November 3rd, 1493.
How right were the lips which uttered
(in patois):-
"Those who say they do not love Dominica
Do not know how sweet syrup is."
Four hundred and seventy-six years
after you were discovered,
We pledge l.o move forward for your welfare.
For, whene-er therefore we are assembled together
We shall guard against being divided in spirit
There shall. be no disputes:
Because we are a proud nation
A nation whose people are in love with each other
And you are our Dearest Love
You' beautiful, rugged and mighty fortress D 0 M I N I C A

THIE BEAST AND THE WALL OF FIRE1


by Cynthia Wat


There were once two friends living in the interior of Dominica, in two
noighbouring villages. Jamsie lived at Anse-Soldat and Harry lived at Anso-
do-Gai. Being very good friends they visited each other quite often, spend-
ing long hours over their glass of rum and their cigarettes, meanwhile ox-
changing hilarious taleso
They both dealt in the Black Arts and both claimed to be superior to each
other.
"Bravo old man," Jamsie said one night. "I will see who is stronger, you
or me."
"Boy," replied Harry, H'I tell you I don't jokel If you knew the things I
could do .... well *.. you wouldn't even stay hero speaking to me right now."
"Bahl L tell you, there's nothing in the books I cannot do."
"O.K1 O.K! we will soe."
Jamsie returned home that night planning to test out Harry, whose turn it
was to visit him the noxt night.
Harry and Jamsio spent one of their most hilarious times that evening, No
mention was made of the Black Arts. Their talk was mostly of the coming
National Day celebrations, and betting on who woukd be the National Day queen,
and who would win the title of Calypso King.
Their talk wont on until (looking at his watch) Iarry suddenly jumped up.
"My God Jamsio look at the time and I have to get up at two o'clock to go
to Roseau. Special business. My woman will kill'me tonight."
"You walk fast enough, It is only one o'clock. You will reach in time to
catch the bus."
Harry gave a woeful smile. "But how XIll be tired I.y God."
They said their good-nights and Harry departed. Af'ter about walking for
half anm. hour he came to the bridge which showed that he was a mile and a half'
away from home.
What was his surprise on coming a few yards from the bridge to see an ani-
mal the size of a hugo bull lying across his path. Being a dealer in the
Black Arts, he knew instinctively that this was no animal but a human being in
the form of one.
"Excuse me please" Harry said succintly and boldly,, "but I like to pass."
In response, the animal grew to the size of an olophaht.
Harry knew what to do: so retreating quite a few yards, he hid behind the
trunk of a huge tree and practised his own necromancy,
Suddenly a huge wall of fire (which was Harry) was soon approaching the
animal on the bridge (which was Jamsie). The animal disappeared.
A couple of days later when it was Jamsio's turn to visit Harry, a special
bottle of rum was laid on the table and an extra packet of cigarettes.
After.recounting that night's event, Jamsio said laughingly:
"I was testing you, boy,, but you really beat me hollow. I didn't mean to
be roasted aliveo" Anid he showed his burnt eyelashes as he winked.

Saturday, November 1'5,1969 THE STAR Page Thirteen
SOLYCARP
I would like this wook to examine some of the economic aspects of Dominica,'
the basis of my information coming from a passing visitor with no axe to grind,
some of this may shock or surprise you, but it's not so easy to refute.
DOMINICA IS UNDERPOPULATED
Dominica is one of the" largest islands of the chain, but yet has the small-
ast population.
70,000 people is too small a population for an independent community with a
land mass as big as ours. Many businesses cannot operate properly and make a
profit if their potential market is less than 100,000 customers at least.
70,000 people cannot afford to have the specialists and experts in various
fields that can be reasonably carried by larger populations.
Our roads and other facilities must be the poorest if we have fewer people -
but larger land mass than other islands4.*where can the money for road taxes
come from?
There are many specialised businesses that we need here for our woll-boings
but don't have. (Uhat compounds this problem is that if a now business opens,
another four copiers appear in short order). -
Other areas affected by under-population are:
I/ Lack of funds derived from taxes for govt. spending
2/ Lack of customers for commercial institutions
3/ Lack of employment opportunities
A larger population would automatically mean more electricity, more roads,
more of everything, work, building and trade.
How is this larger population to be achieved?
I know of certain males in Dominica who seem to work at the problem by day and
by nightI But seriously, unrestricted sex habits as presently practiced are no
answer to the problem. This kind of population increase only increases the
poor and undor-oducAted masses.
Birth control (not just for the middle class) is still nooded in Dominica
as it is almost everywhere.
Looking at the problem frbm a world viewpoint we see that the population
explosion is a problem, so that the logical answer is to increase our popula-
tion by immigration and encouraging a selective influx of outsiders, just as
Canada does.
Does it shock you? Yet its perfectly logical. .We. nead new ideas, talentsA,
and competition. Any man who believes in himself can thrive on competition.
The idea that it takes broad from Dominicans is just not valid by logical
economic theory,.
GEOGRAPHY OF DOMINICA
Although on one hand nature has been kind to Dominioa by making her one of
the most beautiful of islands, she has made it difficult for us in other ways;
at present the positions of our airport, harbour, abd capital leave a lot to
be desired. 'Logically,, looking over a long term policy, Portsmouth should be
the capital of Dominica so that the airport, harbour, and capital could all be
together in one area.
EDUCATION
On Dominicat education should have the highest priority; without it we are
nothing (I an constantly aware of my own limitations due to lack of proper
education and having to work when I should have boon at school), Yet we have
a situation where education is split between the Roman Catholic church and the
State.
Naturally,-as the largest and most powerful institution on the island the
Roman Catholic church seeks to perpetuate itself by-control of the schools.
Iovertheless, education should be in the hands of one competent and secular
authority, and any religion being taught at schoolsebo oabfined to comparative
religion so that young persons can make up their own mind about their beliefs.
(This spirit of learning to think for one's self is till painfully lacking
from our schools system).

UPROAR IN THE HOUSE (from page 1) *****
In the muddle of parliamentary pro-
oedure, the Speaker is reported to have
asked that Henry be'named, and this was
o4ione. After a pause, Premier LeBlanosec
onded by'Minister Ducreay of Trade and
Industry, moved that the Member be sus-
pended for the rest of the sitting:this
was passed by Govt.'s large majority. *
The Speaker then said that Henry, who
still remained in his place, should be
removed by force if necessary, and the
Serjeant-at-Arms and another Police Off-
icer -walked him out of the Chamber in a
dignified manner (cries of shamee) from
onlookers, who followed the-ejected
Member out of the Court House. School-
children who were present to increase
their civic 1howledge also left. Other
sympathizers along the road took up the
exclamation, which was echoed by the
public at the emergency Freedom Party
meeting that evening.
Thus Mr. Henry's motion on the agenda
asking Government to renegotiate with
new parties on Sunday Island for the sake
of Portsmouth and Dominica people, and
to include on the negotiating team one
person nominated by the Opposition,
lapsed for lack of a mover. The House
at that session passed an Act repealing
the Enabling Act on SIPA (the one in
which the rushed-throUgh Govt.- Bruce
Robinson Agreement was ratified). *****
Government then passed everything else -
the Genocide Act, the Agreement for the
Establishment & Operation of Caribbean
Development Bank, the Portsmouth Town
Council Act, as well as Special Warrants
totalling $100s286 and Supp.Estimates
totalling $276,526. Various papers were
presented, and in QUESTIONS it'was elic-
ited that $54,586 out of a $60,000 loan
had been spent on the Glaxvillia Scheme;
no further loans from Geosts are being
requested because of outstanding arrears
of $16,053. Maiitcnance of the area and
surfacing of roads are provided for. *
Henry's question on a secondary school
for the North depends upon "a relatively:
large amount of capital which is not
readily available."Strong possibility oJ
a start by 1971 through international Ed
Same type of reply on secondary educat-
ion for girls: the Northern school
"should be co-educational). Government
told Henry (on SIPA) "there are no vali
claims accruing to the parties who pub-
lished letters in the Press"; it will
deal with them as with all non-valid
claims, On CONSERVATION, Govt. awaits
the report of the Washington gentlemen
who held discussions with the Minister
of 2. & I,.; it will then be studied.

THE RELEASE OF ANTHOITY GREY
This man has been treated in complete defiance of the norms of civilized
behaviour between nations. The Chinese Communists ha7- shown that the ideals
of justice and freedom for individual human beings mean nothing to them and
this is undoubtedly something which ought to be recognized by those in the
developing countries who are tempted by Chinese Communist overtures of friend-
ship to think that only the Chinese Communists represent the real forces of
freedom in the world today.
The fact that Grey has been released may owe something to the constant re-
ferences to his plight in the world press. His family and friends in England
have seen to it that he has not been forgotten,, and the press has been ready
to take his part. In spite of their denials the Chinese Communists have shown
that they are to some extent sensitive to what people think. And this shows
that the press is always justified in taking up the cause of people illegally
arrested in totalitarian countries, although it so often seems that publicity
can obtain little.
The cynics will also say that because Grey is a pressman himself his case
only goes to show that the press looks after its own. 'But this would be u.n
fair. His first words on arriving in London were a plea for the other men, 24
Japanese and 11 British,. who were still detained in China and who are being
forced to suffer in silence,

WHAT DO THESE WORDS IlEAIT?
SPR. J. A draft resolution has recently been submitted to the United Nations
Special Commission. It concerns self-determination for all nations and
equality of rights for all nations. Here is the full toet:
"-11 nations have the right to self-determination,, to. complete liberty, to
sovereignty, and to the inviolability of their frontiers. Each nation can thus'
choose freely its own .political system and dispose as it wishes of its economic
social and cultural dcvelomnt; each nation has tlhe'rit to dispose freely
,of j-Js natural wealth..,"
-Or..e last detail:
The draft resolution is presented jointly by the Soviet Union, Poland,
Rumania and Czechoslovakia. Good old Newspeak... SWISS PRESS NEWS,
