Saturday, May 23, 1970


I recently saw a photograph in the Barbados "Advocate-News" of the formal
opening of a fair sponsored by the Senior Choir for the Animation of the Sick
and Incapacitated. This body is well-known in Dominica, having toured this
country-on more than one occasion. Its leader, Mr. Harold Rock, is also a
familiar figure in Dominica.
The really interesting thing about this fair is that the formal opening was
done, not by the Governor-General or his lady; not by the Prime Minister or any
Cabinet Minister, but by the Matron of the Mental Hospital of Barbados.
This is an attitude and outlook which this column has for some time, but
without success, been trying to inculculate into the minds of those promoting
similar activities seeking public support, but there still persists that
colonialist outlook that it j4 only politicians (in power!) and rulers who
must do the honours at such functions.
I judge this, for example, from public notice of a week of activities to
raise funds for a project for the blind. I consider it a most disappointing
performance that the Minister for this and the Minister for that are considered
the only suitable persons to preside over such functions, And lest any im-
proper motives he ascribed to my saying this, I affirm that I hold to this
view irrespective of whatever Government may be in power. Speaking frankly,
I am sure it would have made more sense to have had recently retired Matron
Dorival, for example, 1o the honours at the tea party in the week's activities
rather than the overworked Minister for Home Affairs. It would then have been
a case of giving honour where honour is due. Do the sponsors really feel that
grace, charm and keenness in the welfare of the unfortunates of Dominica reside
only with political persons?

Everwhere you pass you see it. So that it was not even necessary to gazette"
the appointment of a Supervisor of Elections to be aware that a General Election
is in the offing. In every district and area, however remote, but which has a
certain number of voters, the Government is busy. It is oiling a short piece
of road here; building there; bringing a supply of water pipes at
the other place; hastily negotiating for land for a playground in some other
village. And widely pervasive is road repair work and Government building
This ploy had been accurately foretold and, consequently, well expected.
Because of this, the ploy has lost its sting and the prevailing attitude among
recipients is: we take it, but this will in no way affect our election conduct.
For they well remember how for the first few years after the Labour Government's
assumption of office, there was no road work for months preceding Christmas,
a situation far different from what they had been accustomed to. The people
are now experiencing the fat year which succeeded four lean years and they
do not at this stage require to be given the explanation. The situation too
closely resembles that of the year 1965.

The following extracts from a recent editorial in the Barbados "Advocate-
News" are reproduced without any comment:
".....the quality of a government does not depend on the constitution. It
depends on the quality and calibre of the men who make up the government.
The ability to shout on a political platform and the courage to make pro-
mises do not automatically ensure or encourage good government.
......the calibre of many people who have offered themselves to the people
to decide their future destiny, leaves much to be desired in the Caribbean
area. As a result....many problems of the people remain unsolved, to en-
courage frustration, depression, and, as was the case in Trinidad, near

ANDROCLES,(Continued from Page Two)
.....We must never beguile ourselves into thinking that all party faithfuls
serve because they want to do something for their country. Their first call
might not necessarily be "national service" but rather "self service".
When we consider the trend of West Indian politics, it is not surpris-
ing the type of people who have been hold enough recently to offer their
services as leaders of the nation. We tend to make one big joke of it all.
.....But it has become necessary now for us to realise that we must pay
a lot more attention to the calibre of men into whose hands we place the
destiny of the nations.
We might not be able to attract the most honourable, or those with the
highest calibre into our politics, but this does not mean that we have to
settle for the worst."

When the ruling Labour Party held a public meeting at Federation Drive on
the night of Thursday, 14th May, there were some strange and unusual features.
First of all, billed to appear and speak on the platform according to the
WIBS announcement were the Premier and all the Ministers. The former, consistent-
ly conspicuous by his absence from the Party's public meetings for so long,
was expected to be a drawing card. In the event it was not, since the Premier
did not turn up. Neither did Mrs. James, Minister for Home Affairs, who was
seen sitting some distance away listening to the meeting. Mr. Stevens did not
put in an appearance. So only Minister Armour and Ducreay were on hand to greet
the relatively few persons attending the meeting.
This incident is an eye-opener as indicating the true state of affairs
existing among the Ministers. That they come together once in a while,
particularly at public functions, is no denial of the fact that binding links
are or have been for some time very tenuous. It takes a great act of wills for
these Ministers to come together. Despite the previous advertisement on that
occasion, the wills were unwilling.
Looking at the incident in retrospect, the reason can be discerned. The
Ministers were not willing to identify themselves with the Black Power stand
which Mr. Armour adopted personally on that occasion. They were at least trying
to appear consistent in the week following their banning of the visit of
Stokeley Carmichael, High Priest of Black Power, to Dominica. This, I think,
was certainly the case with Home Affairs Minister Mrs. James. Mr. Stevens
almost certainly shared her views. But it seems irrelevant to Mr. Armour that
he joins in banning the visit of Carmichael, but asks Black Power supporters
to believe that he is with them. So out of this welter of confusion and double-
dealing, the best and fairest interpretation is that Mr. Armour, personally,
may be trying to appear to be pro-Black Power, but the Government of which he
is part is not. And one swallow does not make summer.

VISITING DOMINICAN BOWLERS distinguished themselves: in Guadeloupe on
Sunday when five players from local village cricket teams joined with
Dominicans and St Lucians resident in Guadeloupe for an exhibition
match at Le Raizet.
Playing for Team "A" of the Cricket Glub Guadeloupeen, Vincent Shilling-
ford of Macoucherie took 5 wickets for 10 runs against Team "B" whose
highest scorer was Creyton Shillingf6rd of Dublanc with 10. Bowling for
Team "B", Augustus Charles of Layou took 7 wickets for 14 runs. With a
combined 2 innings score of 63, Team "A" beat Team "B" by 6 wickets.
The visit to Guadeloupe was sponsored by the Emerald Hillside Estates
Cricket Club who were represented by Milton Philbert and Verette Jno
Baptiste and by Royston Ellis, manager. The match was; filmed by an
RTF camera crew for showing on television in Guadeloupe and Martinique
in a special programme introducing cricket to the French Islands.

Saturday, May 23, 1970 THE STAR kage even
We are touched by this account from a Scout Leader of truly useful
and kind deeds performed by the Castle Bruce 11th Dominica Scout Troop.
"Mr. Raphael Alfred, Group Scout Leader, and Mr, Julien St. Louis,
Scout Leader, with the Scouts of the 11th Dominica Troop, went 5n a
hike to visit Mount Scalier in the Carib Reservecone Sunday in April.
Reaching the Reserve on their way to the Scalier they had a surprising
meeting with one Mr. & Mrs. Bacon Lgville, living in a little hut far
off from the other neighbours.
"The Scouts found Mr. Laville very ill and paralysed in his whole
body. They called in and tried to find out what they could do to help
him and his wife.
"Looking at the situation which seemed very critical indeed, the
Scouts made a collection among themselves and donated it to the couple,
bidding them be of good cheer and encouraging them. This the couple
accepted, thanking the Scouts very much for what they had done. The
Scouts promised to return another day. After leaving Scalier, the
Scouts went back to their village; when they had returned there Mr.
Alfred spread the alarm throughout Castle Brucejy and asked the everend
Father to announce that the Scouts would be going around taking up a
collection in aid of Mr. and Mrs. Laville.
"After the announcement it was a real pleasure to see how the Castle
Bruce people united with the Scouts by bringing to them clothes,
nighties, sheets etc. The Scouts were successful in collecting the sum
of $30.82 for the couple.
"On Sunday May 3rd 1970 Scouts and Guides of the district journeyed
together so as to fulfill the Scouts' promise to Mr. Bacon Laville.
Upon meeting Mr. Laville again they founa him little worse than how
they had left him. The Scouts lifted him from inside the hut and put
him outside so that the Guides could bathe him; meanwhile the Scouts
prepared his bed inside the hut and afterwards put him back inside.
They gave to him the clothes they had brought as gifts and the other
presents. All this while the Scouts, encouraging and accompanying the
guides, were washing the patient's bedding.
"The Scouts made 5,.00 worth of messages for the patient and gave to
the couple $5.00, the Group Scout Leader still having in reserve for the
patient the sum of $20.82,
"Now the Scout Group is still trying hard to see whether they can get
united with the villagers of Castle Bruce so as to build a house, that
the patient could be near by under observation and avoid going up and
down in the Reserve."

On Wednesday 13th May some schoolgirls visited the Mental Hospital.
They sang to the patients; their singing was excellent, and a vote of
thanks was given after. These young ladies were members of the Red

Saturday, May 59, iq70 THE STAR Pe Nine
British lid to Dominica reached a record level in the British finan-
cial year 1969/70. A record of about $3,850,000 was disbursed. The
aid fell into three categories: budgetary aid, of $1,2991,00; develop-
ment aid, of over $2,555,00Q; and technical assistance. *
Britain continued to aid the Government.of Dominica in its programme
for developing the State's economy. Dominica's developmental needs are
kept under continuous review by the British Development Division in the
Caribbean in consultation with the Government. Over $2,555,000 in
grants was disbursed in 1969/70 on development projects mutually agreed
withthe Government. This was over $1,380,000 more than the amount of
such aid originally allocated, or over twice as much. The additional
aid was made available following a visit to London last November by Mr.
William Bell, Head of the British Development Division who demonstrated
that Dominica had new projects, on-going programmes, works capacity and
above all needs in excess of the aid funds then available.
Of the development aid, almost $1,500,000 was spent on infra-
structure almost entirely on road construction and bridges; nearly
$530,000 on schools; over 4200,000 on natural resources; and over
$610,000 on buildings, vehicles, radio and other equipment for the Ro-
yal Dominica Police Force. Most significant was the continuation of
work on the important new road link between Roseau and Portsmouth
($700,000). Work was also continued on the East coast road programme:-
the Castle Bruce-Salybia Road ($190,000) and the Delices-Victoria Road
($106,000). In Roseau itself, Britain is part financing the new mar-
ket and $187,000 was disbursed in 1969/70. Disbursements on the Ma-
Shaut and Weirs schools were $120,000 and on a new Junior Secondary
school at Portsmouth, which will be completed in 1970/71, $173,000.
Technical assistance was also given by Britain. One major assign-
ment was the feasibility study by British engineering and economic con-
sultants into the establishment of a deep water harbour at Roseau; and
in addition Britain financed the post-school training of 121 Dominicans
during the year; 77 at University level, including 28 at U.W.I. and 22
in Britain; and 44 on other courses. A new aid year has begun. Bri-
tain hopes to be able to assist Dominica in her efforts to achieve
economic and social progress to a similar extent in the twelve months
which lie ahead.

Soon a whole generation of tourists and nature-lovers from many
parts of the world have visited the great nature reserves and national
parks of East Africa, particularly those in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda,
They have been able to admire the fact that here more than in any other
sphere of national life Africans have been doing all the work work
for which a high degree of technical training is required.
The standard of achievement in these national parks has risen since
independence. The influx of visitors has itself created problems
which have been rapidly mastered without appeals for aid from abroad.
This is, in short, a department of. life in Africa where significant
technical progress has been taking place with very few set-backs. -
