GENERAL ELECTION POST MORTEM N~, 3
By Androcles
In considering some unusual features of the recent Election, we have
already identified some of the more startling ones as follows:
(X) The consistent direction given by the successful Party to the
0lectorate that they should not allow "rich" people in public life;
(s) Despite this, however, the affluent element in the LeBlanc Party,
hitherto hidden, was forced under the pressure of events to surface in
the days preceding the Election;
(3) The political partisanship of the Police as a boay was made
manifest.
Today I deal with what I consider the most startling of all the fea-
tures. It is quite possible that there are persons here, under whose
Jsee events have occurred, but who have not been aware of what I now
proceed to state.
A very definite attempt was made in the Election campaign, to make
people believe that LeBlanc, the leader of the successful Party, par-
took of the nature of a god. This is not an exaggeration. Certain
policemen and civil servants have been identified as persons insinuat-
ing this blasphemous idea in the minds of illiterates. It was noticed
most forcibly at the final public meeting of the LeBlanc Party held
from the balcony of Mr. George Kaeam in Cork Street on the night of
Sunday, 25th October, when it was feared that things were going badly
for that Party. In the crowd were persons sent to take note of happen-
ings. It was on that occasion, too, that the political partisanship of
'the Police was most publicly demonstrated.
.The attempt to divinize LeBlanc began with the posting of large pic-
tures of him at strategic points all over Dominica. I did not myself
see it, but I have been reliably informed that even some Government
vehicles carried the portrait. Thus was created the intended "Big
Brother" feeling almost everywhere one went. This effect being created,
satellites took over from there and in a variety of ways hinted that
Lelanc was no ordinary mortal and that he was something of a god.
Consequently it would be impious not to vote for him.
I want to repeat that the ones who hinted, suggested and insinuated
this horrible idea to their more ignorant brethren were persons who
knew better, but whose knavish propensities led them to this terrible
act.
Somewhat allied to this, since we are dealing with a perversion of
religion, was the attitude of persons who would wish to consider them-
selves religious. I have never been more ashamed of Catholics thai in
this Election campaign. For the leader of the LeBlanc Party has made
it abundantly clear what was that Party's, i.e. his, attitude and in-
tended future policy to the Catholic Church. So, too, had his chief
lieutenant, Armour. Thus I am not in the least surprised when I read
the banner headline in the "Dominica Herald" of 7th November.
LeBlane had publicly insulted the Catholic clergy by referring to
them who had done so much for the community (education, primary and
secondary; housing; creches:; Credit Union; free food for the island's
poor; devoted work for the old at the Infirmary; setting up a high-
class handcrafts industry; initiating a land settlement scheme on the
Belvedmb Estate; now setting up a garments production farery, etc.
etc. etc.) as "bloodsuckers." There is no one in Dominica who can
honestly say that he did not know about this -- the Freedom Party had
ensured that. It was also well known -- and I imagine that Mr. Stevens,
then Minister of Education, would substantiate it -- that after it had
been proved beyond any doubt thot unless an increase in Government
subvention were forthcoming, the Convent High School would be forced
'to close down, LeBlanc still refused as Minister of Finance to release
the required funds until he realized that this would become an Election
issue and so was bound to relent. (Concluded on Page Pour)

ANTROCOLES (Qontnue1d fror page two)
All the local world .also knows that LeBlanc has been itching to deport
priests, and to satisfy an old-grudge a an oldrge ainan old priest with whom he
once crossed swords and many people know of the hint which he drops
occasionally about what he will do to the Church if he gets a chance.
And yet, despite all this, Catholics have been among those most devoted
to ensuring his success at the polls. I shall indicate some of them:
holders of some of the highest offices in the land; cantors in Church
choirs; sacristans;; Officers and leading members of the Holy Nane
Society together with their wives and other relatives; people frequently
seen receiving Holy Communion and -carrying "le dais." What is the
meaning of this? Surely, in a normal society, :ffa less than this is
enough to ensure that a Party based on principles so opposed to those
professed by the people get nowhere. Can it be that there is much less
in the people of Dominica than is; usually thought to be the cs e? A
gloomy thought indeed.
As I was saying: efforts have been made to cause ignorant people to
believe that Edward LeBlanc partakes of the nature of divinity and has
certain god-like qualities and attributes. Those responsible for this
are not exactly ignorant. They are worse than that. I was enumerating.
earlier the types who, surprisingly, have been found promoting the
cult. I have also mentioned the types who would wish to be, catalogued
as Catholic but who give themselves to supporting a regime avowedly
anti-Catholic. I go as far as to sa that even the Church's own news-
paper has been, to say the least, very ambiguous in its attitude in
this matter. So where do we go from here?
I believe that it is later than we think. A certain kind of
materialism has so taken hold here that people are willing to pros-
titute themselves, their early training, their education, their Faith,
upon LeBlancs altar just so that they nryget what they do not deserve
and could not :honestly earn in the normal course of things. Thus the
taxes that we 'pgy become, under the existing regime, the instrument of
our own torture. Only this explains much of what we see around us.




VER S E S, by ROSE 0


DON' T WAKE DADDY



Don't wake Daddy he is having a rest.

After all. his labours north south east and west -

Look-it, he has taken off his dirty tennis shoes,

Loosened up his belt and finished read the news.



Underneath his photo burns the altar lamp

All the treeless backyard is a police camp.

"God" is in his armchair; all is for the best;


Don't wake Daddy he is having a rest.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE OF THINGS
By The Ghost of Si and G
Yesterday I heard my first Christmas carol. Already? They don't
even give us time to recover from one thing and there we are slam bang
into another! No time to recuperate! Hibernate! That's the answer: Get
way out from it all and hibernate .... In a nice cosy Cave .. *
Like theLione on lower Kennedy Avenue' Then you're REALLY way out:

Walk through those cowboy-style doors and there you are, starting
your adventure to the bottom of the sidewalk. Take a drink at the bar,
relax, and you are on your way. As you get bolder you will want to
journey further. You pay, and receive the secret seal stamped on the
palm of your hand. Now you can enter the second room, music is all
around you. There are walls, there's a floor, stools and tables are
scattered around the room. In the centre there is a large gaping hole.
Music surges upwards and you look down *g... lights flash .....
suddenly it's dark ... they flash agan

"Let's go dowh"
"Me! You Mad.'
"Come man Giri~ don't be foolish:"
"How you know they don't have
nothing down there? You don't
remember that Dracula picture
week before last when th4 woman
with the big mouth .... "
"Tch' Don't be stupid" and Aown we go1 Down a spiral staircase
dotted with little footprints. The AiMA$ The Cave ... Lights flash
and you realize they are in time with the music. One wall is black
and white and moves to and fro before you, but you touch it and it's
only painted. Your eyes'nmove, your feet move and the music beats;
Louda It's all around you tries to get inside you and you dance, you
have to, there are no seats" You feel as if you're not on Kennedy,
Avenue *.... not on Dominica ..... not on the World *... just way out
*... just in The Cave.


SEA &iANTY

Oh lower your standards, Davey me boy,
Ando.loer your sights to zeros
'-or the order of the day is full back pay
.. And the Pundit is visiting Mero.

Oh what a marvellous charlatan crowd
Is crammed on the upper deck!
But some are nervous, because a cloud
Foreshadowed Christena's wreck.


The Admiral acts like a cabin boy
And the cabin boy does the steering;
Oh lower your standardcL Rocks ahoy!
And the day of judgment is near ing.


Yes, lower your standards, Davey pal -
For they can't sink very much lower;
But if worse befall, try a backward crawl
And become a banana grower.

ALCOIOLISIH by Dr.Curtis HI.Baylor
For many generations over-indulgence
in intoxicating liquors was regarded
simply as a bad habit. Anyone so af-
flicted uas criticized in a destructive
nannor by nearly everyone in the com-
nunity. This made bad matters worse,
Today alcoholism is regarded as a Mani-
festation of emotional instability, and
the rehabilitative treatment for alco-
holism is to treat the alcoholic for
his emotional instability.
The unstable person uses alcohol as
an 'escapo Aichanismn with which he
tries to obtain relief from feelings of
unhappiness, frustration, or other pro.-
blems, largo or small.
The basic unhappy'situation may be
in his domestic lifo, in the loss of a
loved one upon jhom he was too depen-
dent, in his rwrk, or in a sense of
guilt or personal failure. The batic
causes may be difficult to uncover1 but
they will usually come to light under
careful analysis.
The most unfortunate part is'the
fact that the avergac alcoholic, with-

FA'T "HE R E D W D AL D A L 'X A ND D2.R's Radio Tribute to GENERAL.DE GAb~LE
Charles de .Gaulleo :- ..I- UNI& G D GRA)D UN GRAlD. Oh .
"A-' all man, a great kan." In those words many people described the late
General Charles do Gaullo. As I listen to the broadcast of the solemn Requiem
Mass which formed part of the hMmorial Service of the late' general, I cannot
help recalling this description of him and how true it was. De Gaullo was a
tall' man, taller by far than many; in a crowd his tkepiod' head would always
be soon towering over everybody elso's as the Eiffol tow6r over the other
buildings of Paris; He was a groat man in many respects, greater than many of
his contemporaries, greater than many others who hold the came posts and per-
formed the same functions.' A groat soldier, an astute politician, he was one
of the World War Igreats, and can take his place of honour'near men like
Churchill, Eisenhower, Montgomory.'. Ae loved being a soldier, and showed this
by appearing most times in uniform. He was a Christian, a Catholic, a man who
had in him the charity of' Clrist, and who transmitted that came Christ in his
political and public life. Do Gaulloes christian life is a great denial of
the false idea of many of our Wost Indian politicians that success and groat-
ness lies in the rejection of God and his Christ and all that they stand for.
He had great faith in God, in'the Eronch people, and in his ability to do
something for the world and for his country. Without this ho could never have
succeeded in doing what he did in extremely difficult circumstances.
MI first recollection of Do Gaullo goes back to thirty years ago, when as a
boy .6f three I heard local philosophers discussing Uorld War II which was then
ragjag. Names like Churchill, Li-tler, Roosvolt, Do Gaullo wore mentioned.
There is a gentleman of -Biocho still living, an admirer of the general, who
called himself Do Gaullo; to this day he is called Do Gaulle by his friends.
After the war very little was heard of De Gaulleo he went in voluntary poli-
tical ojeil because he dislTied the proposed new constitution of'1946. He
also felt that he'was not wantedd, he stood down until his recall, for his purz
poso was to servo, to serve tlio land that was his and which he loved, Franoe,.
He was called back in 1958 when France most needed someone to remove her from
the moss of instability and insecurity. France had oo0 'through the war of
Indo-China which she lost; the wiar in Algeria was raging, and that war was
spreading to'Franco. To give France some sort of stability'and respectability
in the world, he was extremely firm and had to assume powers which gave him
the tag of dictator. He steered France through a most difficult period and
was happy to take his exit'voluntarily from the political scene when he saw
that ho'was no more wanted, in the minds of many no more nhoedod. He had done
his job, he had fought the good fight, he had run the race.
As groat asahe was. General Do Gaulle was not loved by everybody. Many of
his measures were unpopular, but he accepted criticism as a man, a man seven
foot tall. He more than seldom w6nt to the people to'ask tlhom to ratify his
measures which appeared unpopular, and it was in one of those referendums that
the people told him that his time was up. He took it like 'a man and retired.
An emptiness was felt all over France, but De Gaulle, a great statesmanpre-
pared someone to continue his work, to continue to guide France along the
right way..
In preparing this article I am listening to the Actual Ha-s of burial which
is taking place at the parish church of the general, at Colomboy los deutx
Eglisos. A man who was ofohn called proud, did not want a State funeral. iez
funeral is as that of any humble citizen of France, among humble folk, among
the parishonors and parish priest of la Colomboy.
I recall the years that I'spont in France, spent under the reign of General
Do Gaulle, and although I'never met the man personally, I fool that I have
lost a friend. We all have lost a friend, not only his fellow citizens, or peo-
plo like me who have lived in his land for some time, but the'whole world; for
he was one 6f those who laboured for the freedom of the world, the loader of
free Franco, one of those who risked his own life for ias land and for world
peace.
