One of the most significant pieces ever to appear in the local press
must surely be Rupert Sorhaindo's contribution "Reflections II" in the
Herald of 16th January. The thing is a minor classic. Rupert is a very
young man, but he exhibits a maturity of mind and felicity of expression
which should be the envy of very many of his seniors. Would to God that
there were more similar young minds to which, with confidence, we could
commit the future!
Rupert Sorhaindo was the Freedom Party candidate for the Vieille
case constituency in the October 26th General Election. Except for the
village of Vieille Case proper, his Labour opponent, Hon.John Royer,beat
him convincingly at all the other polling stations of the constituency,
especially in the remote and isolated areas like Bense, Dos d'Ane and
Paix Bouche. The significance of Rupert's win in Vieille Case should
not be overlooked.
Never was there greater dissimilarity between candidates. Rupert
Sorhaindo is, by any assessment, a brain. He is genuinely interested in
uplifting the mass of the people; is of impeccable public behaviour and
does all he can to raise the prestige of his birthplace, Vieille Case,in
particular and of Dominica in general. Nevertheless, the voters of the
constituency were subjected to what he describes as a "dehumanizing brain-
washing"' to choose by a very substantial majority the Labour candidate.
Manfully, Rupert Sorhaindo has pointed out two persons who, he sys,
were largely instrumental in playing upon the minds of the helpless -people
of the area to mislead them into regarding John Royer as a more adequate
and desirable representative than Rupert Sorhaindo, both of whom are
SVieille Casians. Those two persons are: Mr. Jenner Armour, LL.M., Barris-
ter-at-Law and Solicitor; part-owner of the neighbouring Blenheim Estate,
and Mr. Michael Douglas of Portsmouth, whose father is still held in
esteem by the residents of this constituency.
I was; not aware before Rupert Sorhaindo's disclosure that these two
men had played so prominent a part in the election affair,though I knew-
in general terms that highly capitalist though they be, they conceived
their interest to lie in a (LeBlanc) Labour victory. This is an example
pf something I have stressed in my series "General Election Post Mortem'",
namely, that an hitherto hidden element in the Labour Party -- its
affluent arm -- was forced by circumstances to surface from its depths
when it appearedthat the LeBlanc..Party, and with it, their interests
were in danger.
Rupert Sorhaindo tells us how at John Royer's first public meeting,
the candidate himself spoke for about 3ne minute while Mr. Jenner Armour
occupied the platform for t.wq hours, warning the people that a vote for
Borhaindo would'be vote f6. "8obiE;ageiajgur and Roberts. He did
not, of course, tell them that a-vote for Royer was a vote for Armour and
Armour, for a certain huge firm for well-heeled heirs, for parasitic job-
holders, for favoured Government contractors. Nor that a vote for a
successful John Royer implied a continued stranglehold on the banana in-
dustry by a certain family. Nor that the success of Royer would brin~
nearer to realization the overweening ani barely-concealed sib passion
for power of which, however, this community is keenly aware.
Mr. Michael Douglas, to judge by Sorhaindo's account, is: a. range
personality. Prominent in the LeBlanc Labour Party's campaign (he was
the main speaker in ,their Roseau election eve public meeting), together
with Mr. Jenner Armour,hewas he mainspring of the LeBlanc Party propaganda
machine in the Vieille Case constituency. Admitting publicly that the
candidate of his Party was not remotely to be compared with Rupert Sor-
haindo, he nevertheless spoke on the platform agaijist the 'rich' and the
learned. (Continued on page four)

Mr. Douglas, by the way, is son of Mr. Robert Douglas, nabob of Ports-
mouth, who .has.for some time retired from political life. Of all the con-
temptible propaganda of tjhe JIeBlanc Party, there is none more so than the
attempt to; create ..the belief tat such a Party is the poor man's party.
Noblese. oblige: and wh:ile..we can make some effort to understand
.the mentality of some of the propagandists of the victorious party- 'e-
cause of their several lacks and deprivations, one cannot take such .an.
indulgent view of Messrs. Armour and Douglas in misleading the people
into voting for Royer rather- than SorhaindoJt: should have been their
business to try and discuss issues with the masses in a truthful and
objective way so that gradually the people's minds would be educated.
They could have, if it is possible, justified the condition of the roads
of Dominica; the lack of health facilities and of avenues of employment;
even the very conditions in the constituency to which Rupert Sorhaindo
draws attention. But to have said that Rupert Sorhaindo is D.U.P.P. in
disguise -; that he was the tool of other persons -- to have conveyed
the impression that Rupert said in Roseau that the people of Vieille
%ase are fools because he stated that the LeBlanc Party brainwashes many
of its supporters -- that is twisting the truth, and I would have thought
this unworthy of persons like Mr. Armour and Mr. Douglas because, let us
never forget: it, tol-whom much is' given, much is' expected.

I wrote briefly last week on the banana industry in Dominica and I
return to the subject todayJ'-
There is now a widespread feeling among growers that things are not
What they should be in the industry .and many are turning away from it.
What worries them is that their share of the proceeds of the industry
constitutes a diminishing proportion, and they see frivolous and extrav-
agant use of part proceeds of their sweat and toil in tax and cess; their
prices not-rising but their costs always upwards, mainly through Govern-
ment action; uncertainty of the future, despite assurances from Britain
who will never give up ier ambition to become a member of the European
Economic Community -- her principal national objective at this time --
if she cannot secure special arrangements: for former colonies.
The Dominica peasant is a strange fellow. Without fuss and only
after long suffering, he decides on .& course of action. It appears from
numerous accounts all over Dominica that many growers are in this rebel-
lious and pessimistic frame of mind. One of their 'greatest frustrations
is finding themselves without rehabilitation funds after the many winc-
blows we have experienced during the past twelve months, thanks, to the
policy adopted by the Labour Government inspired Boards of the past sev-
eral, the banana industry is too valuable to-be allowed to pasa
away without a determined effort to put things right. I showed last week~
for example, how the grower is exploited for the benefit of members oa
the Board who, for the most part, are so incompetent that real direction
of the inriustry is through remote control. Growers, especially those of
the South and East, have no one but themselves to blame for this state of
affairs if .they continue to show lack of interest even in membership of
the Banana Association while a small determined group has been allowed to
run -- or run down -- things all this time. When will.the people of
Dominica learn?
"I don 't often enjoy old-fashioned religious articles. However "T=E STATUTORY
CIfISTIAN" '(Dec.24) was a wonderful exception. There was an honesty, an openness,
an exceediggly, non-hypocritical aura about it. The author seemed to understand
why change were being nmdde in traditional Church' rituals, even though he
didn't quite care for them. That is understandable, natural. People don't norm-
ally like .change (there is a fear, an uncertainty involved..)but they should
always be willing to concede it when the majority r oquets it, when the New Age
demons it. If rorQ pQple were like Statutory Christian, there might really bo
much -?cace and uoodwil.. in our world.

When he woke up, completely

saw a terrific sight. Lo! There

crawling in front of an anthill
flourishing its sprawling hood.
The farmer looked at the cobra

One day the farmer, having
some urgent business, instruct-

SDue to the rising costs .of operation of our business, -h- high bank interest rates, Nationrs
Provident Fund, increased salaries etc., and the expenses incurred in collecting credit accounts
S coupled to the general dilatoriness of debtors in paying their acccounts, the Directors of this
Company have decided to change the basis of our operations to CASH ON DELIVERY only,
and we shall not operate any personal credit accounts as from ist February 1971.

This policy will not apply to Commercial houses, banks, Government departments and
