Election Date October 26
IEWS that the House of Assembly has been disolved
and that there will be a General Election on Monday,
October 26th. was received throughout the State with
rejoicing, not only by Freedom Party supporters, but by all
those whowant to see this vexed situation settled and
done with before Christmas, not to mention the jump-up
on National Day.
There are eleven seats to be fought over, and two
Parties In the struggle: Dominica Labour Party, which
has been in office for ten years; and the Dominica Freedom
Party, born out of the fight for freedom of the Press and
of Expression, and consequently of the four freedoms of
the United Nations, in the latter months of 1968. Those
who name the Freedom Party as the old D. U. P. P. are
falsifying the issue: naturally Freedom has attracted former
opponents of a dictatorial Government calling itself
'Labour', but they are by no means the left-overs of an
earlier contest. Indeed, they are a truly Popular Front
group with a goodly representation of youth, brains and the
worklng-class which Is backing Freedom with zest.
"IT IS A BITTER BLOW"
That Is what the outgoing Premier said when he related
on Thursday the coup which Mr. Ducreay, Mr. Stevens and
Mrs. Mable James faced him with by demanding an emer-
gency meeting to choose a new political leader. He also
made the strange statement this is a normal circumstance
which some people would like to make Into a national
crisis." And he sacked the 3 Ministers.
Man. It certainly is a biter blow for you: the sort of
blow you yourself have ruthlessly Imposed on others; and

taars for Ducrosy. Stevens and Ma James either. As they
perembulate the place seeking sympathy, all eyes are dry.

REQUIRED: A HISTORY OF DOMINICA
When the House of Assembly met on the 10th September, lHon. Anthony
Moise, Lead6r of the Opposition, posed this simple Parliamentary Ques-
tion to the Government:
"What steps has Government taken during the past two years to arrest
the continuous increase in the cost of living in this State?"
It took the Government nearly 3 sheets of typed foolscap paper to
give the Reply, which, in effect, amounted in sense to one word: "None."
But to get to this, one had to wade through an unnecessary academic
dissertation on what are the elements of "landed cost" -- a concept
quite familiar even to small shopkeepers. Such an approach makes non-
sense of a Parliamentary Question. It is quite clear that the Ministers
are entirely in the hands of civil servants, otherwise, as in this case,
they would have perceived that nothing was contained in the Reply to
dull the sting of the Question. The Ministers should really have taken
a hand in such Replies for the sake of their own skins.
We were told that in March, 1968, some 80 essential items were
brought under price control, but that Officers to effect such control
were appointed only in June, 1969 -- 15 months later,
-Nothing is said about the adverse effects of CARIFTA on the cost of
living; no mention is made of the increased price of electricity
authorized by the Government some months ago, although the dissertation
lists "Refrigeration" as one of the elements of landed cost for some
commodities in general use. A very poor attempt is made to defend the
indefensible repeal of controls of local fish and meat prices 4 years
ago and the Government knows very well that the hardships caused by
these decontrols is out of all proportion to the "limited extent" to
which supplies may have increased.
There are so many things that Government could have dohe to arrest
the cost of living and I consider a few of them, even though I realise
the copy-catting risk involved.
As a general proposition with which all will agree, let me say this :
that watching the wicked waste of Government money taking place all
over the State (e.g. road repairs which require to be re-done 6 weeks
later), the welfare of citizens would have been increased if a portion
of Government revenue had not been collected but left in the hands of
taxpayers to meet the increased cost of living. Waste in any form can
never be condoned. Thus, had the Government abolished the import du-
ties on animal feeds, particularly poultry and pig feed, and retained
price control on poultry and pork at levels appropriate to such cheaper
feed, the cost of production and consequent selling prices could have
been set at lower levels and these-are foods in widespread use. Such
loss of revenue wasted in inefficiently conducted and politically moti-
vated schemes would be more than counterbalanced by the welfare of the
wage-earner in cheaper food. The Government should by now have learned
to use fiscal manipulations as a promoter of public welfare. The
Opposition Party, for example, has pledged to abolish or'considerably
reduce the import duty on the more expensive drugs.
Another approach is to use legislation to bring about the economies
of large-scale purchase of essential items. This Government was noto-
rious for promoting legislation for bad purposes: it is now too late
to do so for a good purpose. One can enact that to get the benefit of
lower prices, importers must bulk purchase essential commodities, the
various agents of such type of commodity getting the privilege of
supply in rotation when quotations are equal or else to the cheaper
Another step worthy of consideration is the reduction of the ad
valre profit margin of essential commodities in a proportion as the
C.I.F. values increase. (Conclu4p. on Pe, -oo~)

ANDROCLES (Continued from Page Two)
If a profit margin of say, 20% is allowed on a C.I.P. value of, say,
$1 (yielding 20 cents), there is no moral case why, if the C.I.F. va-
lue rises to $1.50 (yielding 30 cents), the margin should not be re-
duced to, say, 1570, raising the selling price from $1.20 to $1.72, in-
stead of to $1.80.
There are other ways in which the cost of living could have been
held in check by Government action such as this column has mentioned
from time to time, as, for example, operation of Government-owned
fishing trawlers for catching fish in our waters to sell at prices
lower than the extraordinary prices we now have to pay. Also it could
have helped by the importation of live cattle for slaughter locally,
a food policy which was such a feature of a previous government.
I do not go further with ideas, but I have tried to show that with
a little imagination the Government, which has been in office for 10
years now, could have done something to arrest the cost of living in
Dominicas Apparently, it has not bepn concerned until the matter is
brought forcibly to notice in political form. This view receives con-
firmation from another direction, namely, the callous indifference to
the sufferings of the extreme poor when a Government can pay a human
being $1 per week on the pauper roll to maintain himself at current
prices. Whys when the Ministers go abroad on conferences, say in St.
Thomas, give them $90 of our money per day as subsistence, in addition
to their salary? This $90-per day is equivalent to what Government
calculates a pauper can liVe on for nearly two years. Need more be
The first, last and only history of Dominica was published in 1791.
A period of 180 years has elapsed since Thomas Atwood wrote his "His-
tory of the Island of Dominica" and it is more than time that we come
up with something new and more comprehensive.
We have our national anthem and other symbols of nationhood, but a
knowledge of our history is indispensable at this stage and more efforts
should have been made in this direction. Fortunately for us, we have
two scholars in the history of Dominica who, between them, can produce
something of scholarship and value. Much of the research has already
been done and the time is ripe for the publication of a new history of
Dominica. The two scholars are Father Proesmans of Pointe Michel and
IMr Joseph Borome, whose parents were Dominicans, and who is presently
Professor of History at the City College of New York and who has al-
ready published several monographs on facets of our history. The ex-
pected new Government should commission a joint work by these two his-
torians and pay the cost of publication.
There is much more material for a history of Dominica than is popu-
larly believed. We have a great deal of researched material on the
Spanish, French and Carib Periods; on Slavery; Constitutional and Mili-
tary events; leading figuresvin our history; history of the Christian
denominations and a host of other topics. Nearly every part of
Dominica figures in one way or another in our history. In the interest
of the nation and while these two scholars are able to undertake it, it
is of the utmost importance that for the sake of coming generations
this work be done. I believe 1971 will see this project well on its
way if the expected happens.
It has been announced that Father Edward Alexander, native priest,
has been appointed Parish Priest of St. Joseph. Subject to correction,
I believe that this is the first time that a native Catholic priest is
taking full and canonical charge of a parish.

SOME REMARKS ADDRESSED TO
Mr. Paul lMartin, Leader of Government Business, Canadian Senate,
..."We find it necessary to inform you that we can no longer be fooled by
the myth':of friendly relations between Canada and the Test Indies. The events
surrounding the Sir George W'illiam University affair have put into blatant fo-
cus the potent anti-blackZ f6eling that has been latont in Canadian society..
Black students in Canada have in no uncertain fashion boon made to realise that
white society tolerates them only to the extent that they know and keep theit
place. That place, Mr. ilartin, implies a suffocation of black consciousness,
black pride and black expression an acquiescent subjection to the dictates
of whito society.
You may note, Mr. liartin,'that with three Dominicans before the Courts of
the Canadian power structure, Dominica is in a very real way involved in the
affair of Sir George -- and i shall not regard the proceedings in a spirit
of helplessness. For too long has our relationship with Canada been a more
acting out of the colonial game; for too long has the Oest Indies as.a whole
boon content to play colony to Canada while Canada in turn finds no diffi-
culty in turning her full night on the backs of black people on her shores..,
1o regard the trial of ;ost Indian students in Canada as a blatant act of
racism and we therefore insist that your government carry out a full-scale
national investigation into the allegations made by the students, as only an
investigation at this level can begin to satisfy 'ost Indians. DOINICA

Short-Short: THE DATE By Aynos Zuzaka ANDROCLES on Father Alexander(frP.4)
A new boy has just arrived at the
D.G.S. and is already the- centre of .
attraction. His name is Nelson, and he
is in fourth form. After only one
month at his new school, Sally (a High
School student) tries to make a date
with him. He is at the Hostel when she
phones him from her home..
ITelson "Eello, who's speaking?"
Sally "Guess who. -I am in the
same forr 'with you. "
ilelson "Well, it's certainly hard
to guess. Do I know yott very well?"
Sally "Not so well, but well
enough to remember my namee"
Nelson "Well! you are Lydia,
Sally "Do you like Lydia that much
already? I was the one who answered
your question this morning. You remem-
ber the one you asked about dating?"
Helson "Oh! Then you must be Sally.,
without doubt, I like'the way you
answered that Question, You must know
a lot about dating,"
Sally "Oh, noi because right now
-'na tyr.ing to make-a date with you and
I don't know where to start."
Ielson "Well, as you said this
morning get straight to' the point.
Furthermore, I can't even see you."
As Sally (though bold in some ways)
is rather shy, she blushes.
Sally "Well, I ..... I .... er ...
there's a good show on tonight at the
Cinena and I .... er .... I would like
us to see it together you see, it's
all about dating."
ITelson "Great. honey, Great sure,
why not. I was planning to go myself.
I'll come to your home at eight, okay?
and don't you worry about tickets
'cause I'll get them."
Sally.- "Okay. Thanks and bye for
now," (smiling into the telephone)
Nelson "Bye, honey. See you."
And the two of them return to com-
plete their homework then to prepare
for their first date, which wAs rather
a successful and exciting one, and
turned out to be the first of many..
One does not have to be in complete
accord with Father Alexander's approach
to recognize that'he is a man of con-
siderable ability, great energy and
vast potential. One of his strong
points has been his facility of relat-
ing his ministry to the local environ-
ment. He will find nuch scope for his
many talents at St. Joseph and his
friends and admirers in Roseau will
watch his management of the parish wi-th
sympathetic interest, One aspect of
his ministry which has impressed this
columnist has been his peculiar sym-
pathy and comfort of the bereaved when
he conducts a funeral. We wish him
well in his ne1i assignment.
