CHURCH AND STATE by Androcles -
Last week it was disclosed that the Roman Catholic Church au ooities
had under consideration the erection of a new archdiocese in an-.hipving
jurisdiction over the area covered by what is roughly the Associated
States and the Crown colonies of Montserrat and t-he BritishVirgin Islands.
The erection of an archdiocese is always an interesting event, but
doubly so in this case when it relates: to thegeographical grouping to
which we belong. Generally speaking, it is a sign that Rome has recogised
growth and stability in the Church in the area. Often, too, the object of
the erection of an archdiocese from among hitherto existing dioceses is to
bring the administration of the Church in line with what appears to be
national 'advance and development. It is then more of a prestige-confer-
ring act than anything else, since, canonically speaking, the status of
a diocese and that of an archdiocese is.not different. But large cities
generally have archbishops' (e;.g. New York, Paris, Westminster, Milan,
Brussels, etc.) rather than bishops and the really large and important
ones traditionally have their archbishops appointed Cardinals. Every arch-
diocese must have at least two dioceses under its jurisdiction overlooking,
which relationship does not in any significant way limit the powers of
the bishop over his diocese.
Since 1850, the Diocese of Roseau has had this sort of relationship
with the Archdiocese of Port-of-Spain and, in fact, this Diocese was a:ectd
on the same day that Port-of-Spain was elevated to the status of an arch-
diocese so that on 30th April, 1850, Port-of-Spain got its first arch-
bishop (Richard Patrick Smith) and the Diocese of Roseau its first bishop
(Michael Monaghan). At that time the jurisdiction of the Bishop of Roseau
extended over Dominica, the British Leeward Islands an4 the then Danish
Virgin Islands of St. Thomas St. Croix etc. The Archadiocese of Port-of-
Spain then comprised Trihidad/Tobago and all the British islands south-
"wards to St. Lucia, but excluding Barbados. So that what today we call the
Eastern 'Caribbean, if we exclude Barbados which was under the Bishop of-
Dem;erara, had only two bishops in Port-of-Spain and in Roseau, So it
remained for 107 years until 1957 when St. Lucia was erected into a sep-
arate diocese. Somewhat later, Grenada with its c.opendencies was erected
into another diocese and very recently indeed Barbados and St. Vincent
were formed into yet another diocese. In February of this very year, the
Leeward Islands were. detached from the Diocese of Roseau and erected into
the Diocese: of St. John's Antigua, and the. Dominica-born Bishop Bowers
was translated from Accra, Ghana, to become the first bishop of this new
diocese, taking possession of it. this very month of July.
Thus ecclesiastically speaking, the Diocese of Roseau has enjoyed for
nearly a century and a quarter a status which is new to all the other
Associated States. Dominica had had a resident bishop for 107 years when
St. Lucia, the first of the others to have one, got. its own bishop 14 years
ago. So that we have a long pontifical tradition not remotely approached
by any of the other, British islands of the Eastern Caribbean.
It is therefore with something of a national shock that we learn that
the name of St. Lucia is being mentioned in the context of the seat of
the contemplated new archdiocese. It is hard to believe that a venerable
institution like the Roman Catholic Church could so bypass history and'"
tradition and for no superior reason that we can think of to deprive Dom-
inica of an honour which is clearly hers. Since, it appears, that the
whole thing is still a proposal, the competent authorities are invited to
reconsider the proposed seat of the contemplated new archdiocese. Let not
the.matter of comparatively better air communications in St. Lucia be
brought into consideration archbishops and bishops do not travel every
week. The most venerable diocese in the area under discussion and the
diocese containing the living remnants of that people who gave the Uarib-
bean its name. deserves to receive the honour. Moreover, it is by exper-
ience: equipped to-give the service implicit in the proposal to erect a
new archdiocese for the archipelago from Grenada in the south to the
British Virgin Islands in the. north.

CHURCH AND STATE by Androcles (continued from page two)
We must protest against the underhand manner in which the Government
is approaching the constitutional future of this State.
At a meeting of heads of Governments of the smaller states of the re-
gion held in Grenada and obviously masterminded by the Guyana Prime Min-
ister, a draft Constitution prepared by the Attorney General of Guyana
(why are we so plagued by Guyanese Attorneys General?) was produced for
Why this stealth and secrecy? Why no hint to the population that such
a thing of so far-reaching importance is under consideration? Why no in-
vitation to the people to discuss in general terms at this stage the merits,
if any, of the proposal?
This Government is treating the people in a rather contemptuous manner.
As far as the Government is concerned, the people of the State do not ap-
pear to matter. They hand down to them judgements, decrees and decisions
and no attempt is made to establish a consensus with the people who put
them in office,.
For myself, I have the greatest reservations about a Burnham-inspired
Political move of this kind. I have never been happy about Burnham's con-
soriings with Communist and far-leftist countries. His latest interest is
in Allende's Chile and much of his internal arrangements seems to be
*- ... moe"g-in..a direction which we do not recognize as democratic. Indeed,
those who know say that there is nothing to chose between Burnham and
Cheddi Jagan from this point of view.
Another thing in connection with the bla-bla surrounding this secret
move, the details of which have not been vouchsafed to us, is the discouLn-
ting of the human rights of the people of Anguilla. It appears to me that.
the urgency with which this political get-together is being manoeuvid
is so that Anguilla can be kept in thrall to St.Kitts against the clear
expressed will of her people:. One must never forget that these same heads
of Caribbean Governments were prepared to use force to keep Anguilla under
the heels of Bradshaw but. for Jamaica's refusal (and later, also Barbc
adoos) to go along with them. They have had no constructive plan to solve
the four-year-old crisis, but the, moment the people of Anguilla succeed
in getting their wish to be freed of St. Kitts (and wh&t greater or more
compelling reason can there: be than the considered wishes of the people) ,
then they tmne up with all kinds of nonsense about fragmentation and dis-
integration of the. region (as though there is an;r preexisting integration).
The welfare of Anguillans, their lives, their liberty and their happiness
-- all these are completely overlooked.
A o * A 0 0 *
There. is one aspect of the struggle to enfranchise youth which must
never be: lost sight of. The Opposition has had a helluva job pressuring
the Government into giving youth the vote. It took three Resolutions in
the House of Assembly consecutively brought forward at the earliest intep-
vals consistent with the Standing Orders before the Government relented.
But even after this, it is still fighting a rearcguard action by holding
back as long as possible the privilege thus gained for the youth.
The latest such rearguard action was seen at the House of Assembly
Sme-ting o-f'8th July when the Bill giving youth the vote at all elections
was finally passed. The first such election to come up is that of the,
Roseau Town Council in October -- UNLESS, AS THE GOVERNMENT NOW PROPOSES,
MANAGING THE AFFAIRS OF THEIR CITY -- when the youth would have had the
opportunity of voting. There 'is every opportunity of completing arrange-
ments to enable Roseau youth to vote in that election. The Roseau Town
Council is the one in chArge of such arrangements and that body is quite
sure that there, would be adequate time for 18-year-olds to get their
names down on the. voters' list to be able to vote in October. This was
pointed out at the meeting of the House. But to thwart the political asp-
irations of the youth, Government decreed that the law enfranchising
youth to vote at the. Town Council elections will not come into operation
before January, 1-972, thus: effectively depriving them of being able to
vote at the; coming Town Council General Election, (concluded on p[,)

Short Story DRAMA MOVES FAST by G.W.M. Williams

Alberto climbed up the stairs. casually and rapped at the doar.
No answer! The room was in complete darkness:. He heard the sound of
a sweet mournful piece of waltz music somewhere in the bedroom. He
rapped again; this time, so forcefully that hisknucklea ached.
Flic! Light from a cylindrical inflorescent bulb flood the entire
apartment. The music ceased immediately. Dead silence, So silent
that Alberto, standing on the verandah, could even hear the lilies
growing in the flower-pot,
"Suzan." he yelled, "what the hell do you think it is' Open the
"Oh, it's you' One moment honey, I'm coming-g-g."
"One kiss before I leave you" whispered a voice from within,
Two minutes after, Alberto heard the soft romantic footsteps of his
wife approaching the door. She wore a blue nylon negligee. Her hair,
very uncustomary, was in a dilapidated condition. Her eyes looked
dreamy and romantic. Her negligee was saturated with perspiration.
Alberto, as usual, pulled her diligently into his arms and kissed her.
Her lips had a strong taste of cigar.
Alberto closed the door and walked straight into the bedroom. The
fact that his wife had just been unfaithful to him never dawned on
his mind. They had been married only seven months and he loved her
too dearly to suspect.
He undressed, took a warm bath and slid into his sleeping apparel.
When he returned to ti.e room, Suzan was wearing another negligee.
She looked radiantly beautiful., This time she smelt like a fresh
morning rose. Her smile portrayed expectancy. Her body trembled
under the thin nylon and goose bumps covered the entire surface of
her body.
Alberto pulled open a drawer, took out a bottle of Gordon's Dry Gin,
drank about four gulps and cruised into the bed beside his wife. A
beautiful piece of drama too dazzling and exciting for the eyes to
behold had just began.
The scene lasted for exactly one hour and twenty-five minutes.
Alberto fell asleep immediately after. Suzan waited for five minutes,
got slowly out of bed, bent down and whispered, "He is fast asleep."
The Young man, Jerome, crawled out from under the bed, stretched out,
took a deep breath and kissed Suzan. To prevent the slightest noise,
he took off his shoes and tiptoed to the door to kiss Suzan goodnight
and congratulate her for a well performed feat. It was a long, deep
Suddenly, Alberto turned and began to snore. Suzan froze. Silence!
Neither of them dared to move' "Please go, Jerome," Suzan half sobbed.
"PleaseI" she begged him, and opened the door.
Alberto opened his eyes! Jerome disappeared in a flash "The bas-
tard." he screamed. "Who was that man Suzan?"
He stared at his wife: his eyes bulging with abomination and hatred,
saliva draining down the two corners of his mouth. With hands out-
stretched in the most ghastly manner that one can imagine, he advanced
towards her. She was paralized with fear. She dared not scream. Her
eyelids dropped. Darkness! He continued towards her in a moon-walk
A loud scratching at the door disturbed the stillness of the night.
He altered direction briskly and opened the door. It was only their
cat. When he returned to the room Suzan was lying on the bed in a
most affectionate and apologetic manner. "One funny move and I'll
blow yo r head off tr. Big Stuff,"' coamanded a deep masculine voice
from boe in the cuitai.n uzan smiled.

Page Six THE STAR Friday, August 2, 1 71
by V.A. Boyd, Island Secretary, Girl auide Council

I've been a lucky Guide Secretary, I was chosen together with
Vernice Seaman District Commissioner for the Torthern Section of
Dominica-to represent the Island on a Guide Administrative Course in
the U.K. I was particularly impressed with the meticulous planning of
the whole Course by the Overseas Training Adviser, Miss Sheila Thomson,
and her Assistants. This Course was concentrated and lasted for five
weeks (May-June). We began with the organisation of Guiding in
Scotland where the Movement is very well established, and the Scots
manage their own Guide affairs and are accountable to C.H.Q. in London.
While in Scotland, we lived at the Scottish Training Centre Netherurd
for a week where we received lectures and training and were made to
understand clearly the whole structure of the Movement including
Finance, Equipment, Training, Camping, Public Relations, International
Guiding, Guide Law Principles,- Aids to Senior Staff and Organisation
of Committees. For another week we were sent out into the Counties
to live with hostesses and to have actual contact and observe some of
what we had been discussing. From this experience I realized that
-those concerned with Guiding are very dedicated people, I was amazed
that even the husbands of the various Guiders are very much involved
in the Guiding roles that their wives undertake, and help whenever
they are called upon.
For the next three weeks we studied the English aspect which is
similar to Scotland. We resided at two other Guide Training Centres
in England, Waddow Hall and Foxlease, and also worked at C.H.Q. in
London where we were briefed in all the administrative aspects of
'Guiding as indicated above. In early 1971 C.H.Qo decided to decen-
tralize the Administration of Guiding and England has been split up
into 6 Regions which are finally responsible to Guide Headquarters in
London. Though this exercise is still being worked out, the Regions
through their Senior Guiders seem to be organising themselves
satisfactorily,as we gathered from a talk by one of the Chief Commis-
sioners in charge of a Region, It is evident that the Youth of the
U.K. have a well established organisation in the Girl Guide Movement.
They have the benefit of Trainers, Advisers, Guiders, well equipped
Training Centres and Camp Sites and a Public which gives them ready
support in all spheres.
The whole Course was very interesting and enjoyable for Vernice and
myself: we had the great opportunity to meet with our Sister Guides-
our fellow delegates from Overseas, also the Scottish Guiders, the
English Guiders at all levels of Guiding. The opportunity to stay at
three well organised Guide Training Centres and taking part in all the
programmes connected with this Administrative Course will always be
remenmbere d
The outlook for Dominica is that we are hoping and planning to use
the knowledge gained to improve our Local Guide Association and help
the Senior Branch the Guiders of our Guide- Movement here, in order
that they can reach Youth through improved organisation.
Finally we were privileged to attend the Annual General Meeting of
the English Guide Association at Mansion House, the residence of the
Lord Mayor We were also presented to Princess Margaret (who presided
at this meeting)and to Lady Baden Powell and the Lord Mayor.
The parting with the Overseas. Delegates, who were from Malaysia, Hong
Kong, Gilbert and Ellice Isles, Iran, Botswana, Tanzania, Swaziland,
Malta, Bermuda, and Grenada was somewhat sad as' we had formed a
friendly little family, and last but not least c-.- two Guider Trainers.
Miss: Sheila Thomson and Miss Gwen Knight, to we are grateful for
organising the whole'tour.

clusion): and, in fact, postponing
v~their-exercise of the privilege un-
til October, 1974', since these elec-
tions are: only held at three-yearly
intervals. It was in the same manner
that the youth were denied the vote
for the House of Assembly elections
last October and again, in this caas,
the privilege was postened to 1975,
though they could easily have ex-
ercised the right in 1970 had the
Government accepted the Resolutions
of the Opposition at that time.
From this, the youth must learn
the obvious lesson: that the present
Government does not trust them and
that lIft to the Government, youth
would never have become enfranchised.
The young people will not be fooled
by Government expenditure now belat-
edly taking place in connection with
matters of youth. This is not the
test of the Government's sincerity.
After all, the Treasury of the State
is at its disposal and it is certain
that another Government would spend
even more, and that more construct-
ively and imaginatively, in the ser-
vice of youth. The true test is:why,
under the continuous promptings of
the Opposition, did it take the Gov-
ernment so long to become convinced
of the rights of youth to take part
in the affairs of their country and
why, after enfranchising legislation
could no longer be deferred, does
the Government still persist in its
rearguard action of postponing what
it considers the evil day of actual
voting by the youth?
