Letter from London
by Lennox Honychurch

"What is the Freedom of the Press ?"
So much has been written, said and
screamed in the past few years about press
freedom that anyone would think we were
e"pents on the subject. From newspaper
columns, political platforms and in the
House ot Assembly we hAve been bom-
barded with emotion o a d e d statements
about our loss of Freedom and democracy.
But what is all the fuss about? What is
meant by freedom of the press? Why is it so
important to us? How. is it used ?And how
is 1i threatened ?
After a little research, I would say quite
simply that Freedom of the Press m e a n
that the Press must be aflowed to say what
it likes about anything or anybody without
fear of the Govero meat or a n y o n e else
penalising it in some way. It must, however,
observe a few laws Jke the rest of us, pir-
ictliariy the law of hbeL There are f o u r
kinds of I i b.e 1; defamatory, blasphemous,

Awe. a= mo

While convalescing from a mild form of 'London flu' (a variant of
JHonkong flu, aad-not present in epidemic proportions in Dominica, I'm
glad to hear,), I listened to the so-called news of the imminent end of
*the- Viet Namn war. So after years of carnage, death, maiming, destruction
of families and homes as well as brave serving men, the whole bloody busi-
ness is to be terminated --not with a bang but with a whimper. And not
with a victory .either. One cannot help feeling an exhausted thankfulness
at the prospectof the ceasefire. Millions of ViLetaaee and 45,,000 U.S.
serve iiceen have. died; 7the President has praised the dead, the maimed and
the returning. It is 'the partial conclusion of the longest and worst war
in America s history, its cost stAll unestimated. And.I reflect that the
STAR was the only nw0organ, in DBminica which declared from the' very fiirst
th-t it wasd a bad war ot' 'through yrmtpathy with the Communists, :but
'because it 'was'-glaringly wasteful, brutalizing *-and. doomed romn its begin-
I have heard over the air and 'have had a brief chance to examine "A
Chance for a Change`",, project manifesto of ,the Castle. Bruce Co>-operative
group, leader Atherton Martin.. It is a long, interesting, idealistic
document which may 'in'parts be unintelligible to the peasants, although
its aims are clear.- What .As 'nvisaged is in my vieW a .collective farm

patterns).. ,-Obviously it is' designed as. a pilot scheme new' to this land,
which will take a lot of faith in human nature to get going. What will
be difficult is the attitude of descendants ..of the, original pioneers, who

gearedto do so. 'However nmy conclusion is that if these courageous

-encouraged to 'do it and see what they cah make of it fox the good of the
local- -people---and perhaps a precedent for our small tropical farmers,
: .I1 have now been asked to give placc to what appears to be the STAR's
topic of.the month -- "Such "Changes" in Church Services,

Madam, The letter ih your issue of 12th January, signed by Lundi, did not
accurately represent tho facts when the writer stated that the creche over
the entrance of the Goodwill Church last Christmas depicted a black baby
Je'tss. The writer-might have recalled (but regretably failed to mention)
that ,the two Angels were represented as black -or shall we say brown -
,persons. Angels in Catholic theology are pure spirits and have no body.
An artist is therefore free to represent angels in any form. In our
case, they-were depicted as coloured persons because the artist was a
coloured person. No one, we thought, could have any valid objection to
this. On the other hand, we. recognized Jesus as a person historically of
Jewish origin. No attempt was made to suggest that he Was black. On the
contrary, the artist took pains to represent the baby Jesus with a realis-
tic pinkish complexion, which a healthy new-born baby normally has. We
will concede that the colouring of the baby was a little on the reddish
side but definitely not brown or black.
On the question of the "masqueradec" and "dancing" in the church we
can only say that it is unfortunate that Lundi was unable to appreciate
music which, although admittedly not of the same rhythm as he was perhaps
accustomed to hearing in England, nonetheless reflected the African ele-
ment of the culture of the vast majority of the parishoners, Or would
Lundi have us believe that the renditions were vulgar or anathema because
they were in Patois?, This we must inform Lundi, is not the attitude of
the Church. The Church is a living and changing organism and especially
since Vatican X1, is anxious to be "with it".
Lundi was guilty of a bit of exaggeration when he stated that the Siff-
leur Montagne Chaine were "dancing"in Church. (Concluded on oage eight)

In. Britain and other free-press
countries there is great respect
for newspapers because of the power
which they hold. It is this power
which politicians either use to
their own benefit oa attempt to
destroy. I was interested to read
the following in a book ona journa-
When a dictator takes control
of a country, soonae or later he
stamps on the freedom of those who
oppose his ideas. He may prevent.
his opponents from holding meetings
to discuss the situation, and he
may prevent them raom holding res-
ponsible ati influential jobs. He
can destroy their freedom in many
ways underthe threat of the army.
But the first thing he does is to
tenzso or top the publication of
newspapers and periodicals which
might, criticise him and influence
their readers against him. This
has happen dd in communist countries,
inl parts oa South America, Turkey,
'Spain, Portugal, and in. South .' .
Africa."- Xt was with a certain
sen e of Shame that I realised I
could Vit-iplly add Dominica to

44j yet 'w simple it would be
to emrn that opposition! It
has been tried for centuries by,
English kings, African chiefs and.
Chinese emperors but time. tad
hmnaaity have proved them wrong,. In
a democratic society it is an im-
portant principle that people who
accept public office must also be
prepared to. accept the..often. harsh
criticism of. how they perform it.
Criticism oQ a Cabinet Minister is
a rather spcOtacular case of this
kind. There are many abuses of .
power lower down the scale, among
officials of all; kinds, afoong busi-
ness mIen, among various elected
bodies such as town councils, and
among members of the general public.
Newspapers pshuld warn their readers
oi~ what is going on in such. cases
and then spP]ak out strongly against
it. .

Fiction MA TITINE by Cynthia Watt * * * *
Garge woke up tb see the brilliant sunshine streaming -into the
room. Titinel's place was empty and the smell of bacon and. eggs
per..ded the house. The banging of pots and pans blended with the
noise of Titine' s vociferous singing told him all too well that it was
time to be -up.
After washing and dressing hurriedly, Garge joined Titine in the
dining room where the table was laid in decorative welcome to honour
bIer family. -
Garge's hair was carefully pomaded ("I aian t in dis Afro bisniss,"
he had told them last night), and he 'exuded a fairly strong scent of
socne perfumed after-shave and eau-de-cologne. As he was about to en-
quire for Eurilla, she. came in and took her- place at the table.
"'Morning everybody she. greeted themm. "My, what a fine morning
Hope the weather keeps up like this. I just came in from walking-out
Sonny," she told Garge. "Hei's fast asleep, naow "
"I so oppose you goin gallivant as soon as you. Teenisheat Garge,"
Titina stated matter-of-faotly.
"Who? Me? Garge asked. "Aftah all Titine, is you I come to see;
I will have. enoff time to see my frons. Even so, I bet Baby tell every-
body I healh, an bet. befoh de day over..."
Garge was out short- b: a loud:, "Haie 1 Garge garcon, we coming. "
and before anyone, could reply, Garge's two best pals had entered and
were shaking hands and thumping him on the back.
"Way, way Titine l I bet you glad. Garge you looking fine, an Erilla
too. Euriilla, I heah you have a nice baby I "
"Yes Pat3, but he's sleeping, now."
And all day long, friends kept pouring .in at Titine's home Around
four b'clock a breathing space was reached and only the family, with
Gen.elia, Baby and. Reuben remained.c .-
Baby was watching Reuben. and Garge amusedly. She was wondering if
they were thinking the same thing as she was now. Titine caught her
glance and smiled slightly. Reuben was watching Garge warily, and
Garge, also was on his guard, but none of them betrayed by any expression
what' they really felt.
"Whar say we. go to de Manicou tonight?" Titine broke in conversation-
ally. "You not too tyad Garge?"
"Tyad. Ho-ho-ho, a puhson like me dat feting roun de clock in
St. Thomas 1"
"lDas jus it! exclaimed Titine, forgetting for the moment that it was
she who had introduced the. idea. "Das jus wat.I: was tinkin. .You wood
too tyad to go anywhere.' Always' fetin ovahb deor C You an..," she
stopped suddenly.
S. "Go head." Garge said softly, too softly' "Me an. .?"'
:But Titine had realized her mistake.'and quickly cove ed it. ."Yyou an
&d'se frens of yose nah" -' '
Garge said, "Is. not dat you was. going to"s'ay. ." '
"HcW. you know wat. I was going t-o sy?" -
".De. way you..i" But Genelia oame to6the rescue, "Eh-eh' wat is
dati"now Garge, only jus come, ta- youall starti- to quarrel : Pas
play sotte garcon is not. dat we he.ah foh.-" Raising her glass of
vodka, "Garge, we heah foh a good time, notrue! You come ovah fah a
good time,notrue? So wat. de hell allyou. begeenin to look for noise foht
Baby full up, Garge an Titine glass." She began to sing, then jumping
up caught Reuben. by the waist and began dancing, across the floor to the
radio, tuned it. on to dance, music,. and with her gaiety and vivacity
finally they all were dancing away to the tune of a Spanish rhaiba,
Reuben exclaipmd^: "Look-out, allyou 1 my pardner takin all de room."
An she' can dance enh. Boy Titine can really dance well' Garge, see
how Titine roomba-in wo11, We dee always was praotisin." And so
Baby had saved the tense situation which had cr-ept between them.

More on "Such O9bage.s"
Dear- Madame, 'White-Washea
I was quite mad when I read the
article entitled 'Such Changes' by
Lundi. We must admit that Dominica
is backward and primitive, but it,
is so' and will remain so as long as
we have people like Lundi who oppose
changes and are still superstitious.
The writer says that there are a
lot of dirty people in Roseau, but
what about :the hippies in London?
Now, if we have to compare the hip-
pies of England and the dirty people
of Roseau, we. will find that the.
hippies are mostly young people who
have run away from their parents'
home and from society and are living
their own type; of life. Now, most
of the dairt- people in Roseau are
uneducated,/ poor and are. parents of
many children, Some of these people
are, drunJkerds, why? I leave you to
think of an. answer or answers.
Some do jobs now and again for the
'Big, Man. who finds it- hard to pay
what, they ask for. If Lundi would
just stay in, Dominica for awhile and
do some social and economic research
he would siirely shut his. mouth. I
agree when he says that our people
talk loud bad language, but I find
nothing wrqng if' a man plaits his
hair,. Looi Lundi, this is done in
England so "don't be surprised if you
see it here too, Man, it's a free
world, so if you feel like plaiting
your hair, you do it and that's no-
bod~y's busiieass; and no crime. People
like you Lup.i, go to England and
copy the Enplish people s customs
(example: wearing a coat in the
tropics on top. of a cardigan, waist
coat, shirt and vast and you still
weaa a neck-tie). I am not. saying
that you cannot wear what you want,
but man don't stew yourself (and
it's unhealthy in the, heat with so
nuch clothing on. Do you do it. to
show off? )


I write in support of the letter
under the heading ."Such Changes" in
your issue of 12th January.
On the point of the, masquerade
show at. Midnight Mass at Potters-
ville I would like to add that
instead of trying to raise man to
God at worship, they have sought
rather to lower God to the level
' of man.
We would do well to reflect on
the following words by Archbishop
Dwyer of England which should be
taken as a warning by us all:
"There is a powerful movement
afoot in the conten gpary Ohuvooh
to destroy the very concept ofthe
sacred, to invade the sanctuary
with Billingsgate, with songs
borrowed from the night-clubs, to
act with a complete absence of
hieratic dignity or decorum, with-
out the difference of vesture or
the dignity of gesture. It simply-
will not wash.
The pitiable little folksingers
in their miniskirts huddled around
the hairy celebrant at the altar
strummimg. their "Michael, Row ycur
Boat" for Communion or their
"Lazybones" for a Requiem may be
bursting with good intention% but
they have not been taught the
first, thing about the sacredness
of worship* Perhaps there is none
to,.teach them' But their resent-
ment will darken in time. When the
sanctuary is made a place- of cheap
entertainment, the day is not far
off when it will be empty, its
window sockets vacant, its vaulting
shattered, the dwelling place -of
tae hoot-owlo"
