They shall not vote they must not vote because
They're unacquainted with their country's laws,
And even if they were, are still too young
To know unvarnished Truth, from gilded Wrong;
Also at Eighteen, they are giddy headed.
Which means their Lilliputian minds are wedded
To thoughtless acts, and great frivolities,
So they're unfit to vote now, if you please.
But they can move in predetermined courses;.
Be policemen join military forces;
Wrongdoers trace, and felons apprehend,
And if it comes to war, the State defend
By giving up their young and brainless live,
So that their threatened native land survives,
Although they never really had a say
In how things went, before they went their vray,
And now I ask you this: if youth must die
When blood begins to flow and bullets fly;
If youth must first be sent up on the road
To No Man's Land, where screaming bomnbse pelode;
Why can't they also put in Ballot Boxes
Their Crosses? Strangest of all paradoxes:
That those thought by Democracy unfit
To vote, should now be called io fight for it.

LACK OF CONSIDERATION .By Androcles
The people of Pottersville and Goodwill are continually being subjected to
Uraiecessary hardship in the matter of their water supply and this does not
seem to be disturbing to the authorities in the least for they have taken a
supine-public attitude for granted.
Ever so often, the Goodwill-Pottersville water supply goes or is closed
without notice. In addition, whenever the power supply to these areas is af-
feotod, the water also goes. Please note that I ami not now referring to the
disorganization caused by the passage of the recent hurricane.
The nost frequent cause of the interruption of the water supply has, it is
said, to do with a notor for pumping the water from the dam at Copt Hall. On
several occasions this single motor becomes in need of repairs and then thou-
sands of persons as well as several industries are left without water. In
one case it became necessary to send the motor to Barbados for repairs which
could not be done locally'and it took weeks, during which time there was no
water in'the area, Again, last week, and just before the effects of hurricane
"Dorothy," the Pottersville-Goodwill area was plunged into waterlessness, a
process which was completed soon after with the passage of the storm.
Why has it not been considered necessary to have a standby notor or punp or
whatever it is to take over when there is a breakdown in the main one? Is
there no consideration for the thousands of inhabitants of Goodwill and
Pottersville who are so often distressed by lack of water? Is there no thought
for the urgent requirements of Princess Margaret hospital and of the several
industries in the industrial area which arst have: water for their operations?
Or the danger of fire in the area during the periods whon the water is off?
Does a second machine cost such a fortune that the Governnont cannot afford
it ("Dorinicans have never had it so good" -- Mr. Ducroay) or is this just
plain incompetence and inability to plan? The second nost senior member of
the Government, Mr. Ducreay, should be ashamed at such treatment of the con-
stitucncy which he reprQsents.
There is a looseness,- a slackness and a general purposelossness in the Gen-
cral drift of the Governant which it is difficult to take and no wonder that
people are fed up to thq throat.
As a further example, take the matter of repairs to the streets. It is
clear to all but the authorities that there is something urong in the method
being adopted. Repairs carried out now need repairso'in about six weeks tine
and even the dullest note this. Yet, the Government, ;who have undertaken to
do the work for the Town Council at the Town Council's cxpcnse, seen bliss-
fully unconcerned with the o:ponsive childish ness which in now street repairs
and no one seems able to improve the system, even 'liile the nan in the street
clearly observes that there is something wrong in the whole business. How
much longer can such states of affairs in the various lines of Government
activity go on without our lapsing into barbarism?
I was recently privileged to have a peep of the Opposition Party's Econ-
omic Development Plan front which I quote this rather inteoroesin section:
"The Party regards a canning factory as a high priority on the list of econ-
ohic developnmet needs and sinco'private enterprise has not been willing or
able to establish such a factory, this will be regarded as infrastructure for
agriculture and undertaken by a Freedom Party Govcrnnont."
A dynamically novel approach, I must say, compared with the penny-pinching
and self-balancing att-itide adopted by some people, particularly a certain
section of the local press.
I think I can see the point. Infrastructure is not a C-roction of the na-
tional outlay in which it is easy to make any kind of cost-bonofit analysis
in monetary torms. It is taken for granted, and oxperionce supports the vie:w,
that an appropriate infrastructure stimulates the relevant ccononic activity,
giving rise over a period of time to greater benefits than the original cost.

This is the justification for certain types 6f infrastructure and one can
woll envisage increased agricultural production, saving of produce hitherto'
allowed to waste, and consequent increased private and Govern~mnt inconms as
a result of a canning factory. One of the great drawbacks of Governnent po-
licy in the past has been that no effort has been made to give a stimulus to
agricultural production. Uays and means of so doing must now be sought and
conceived by a new Governoint which, unlike the present one that pins its
hopes on industrialization and nineral exploitation, believes that for a long
time to come agriculture will be the principal activity of the people of this
State, supplemented by tourism and placed on a rational basis by diversifica-

I was horrified to read in another section of the local press that our Pro-
nior sees no harm in local butchers selling their beef at $2 per lb. -It is
setange, to say the least, to find support for an increase in the cost of liv-
ing coming front such high places. Moreover, the line of reasoning seers to me
extremely fallacioud. That neat from Australia, thousands of miles away, with
the wages of season, cost ofinsurnace payment of import duties and charges,
all added to the prince cost should retail in the shops' at $1..50 per lb. is no
justification for the meat of the few animals locally reared to be sold at
even higher prices because it is "fresh" neat.
"But the nore important question still remains: How'can-the mass of people
with the present level of wages be expected to be able to buy beef at $2 per
lb.? Or is it being assumed that such people have no right to be would-be con-
sunors of neat? I don't think any Government spoklcsan should be putting such
ideas as to the priceo-of local meat in the heads of the few persons here own-
ing an animal or t-wo. I ca sure, however, that the explanation must be that
the Premier expected what he said in this natter to be kept in the village
where he said it. (There are two or throe aninal-owning voters-there). But in
the Dominica of today information moves more rapidly than namny believe.
