The 'New Plan' for Education
Everybody heard Minister Christian
on Education at the Easter Rally of
Teachers. He emphasis zed the well-
worn cliches; "bread and -butteer'
"agriculture in schools", technical
education" etc. etc.
But he never declared that the
Governxment would, see to i-t that by
1980 people.,would not have to vote
by symbols'and that most of them
would have to be literate so that
they would know why they vote for a.
candidate or a government. Nor did
he mention civis in the schools or
the tse of Radio .Dominica to inform
the public of what.takes place in
the House of Assembly."
The policy is: Keep the people:
igno:'-nt by all mea.s and they Will
'return an incoTpetent and callous
govrniment for another ten decades.
The Banana 'Price
The banana-grower for' the past
four years since Geest Industries
got the D.B.G.A. to break the 1964
contract ,by demanding has .suffered
cruely' in many ways. ; ..
But the most cruel blow is the
decision by Patrick John's Gavern-
ment to pay the grower 7,50 per -b
no matter how high the G.M.P. goes
from Mirch to September 1975 in the
U.K. market.
At present the G.M.P..is 170.00
-per ton which oaould work out at
approximately ll-120 per lb. The
hard-worked grower, however, must
be satisfied with 7.50 and let the
huge difference io into a special
fund at Barclays Bank to be used for
the improvement of the Baaana.
If the' Patrick John Govt. was not
so terribly hard-up, an ordinary
grower might accept this, and if cost
of living owing to the oil crisis and
Lon-.sugiar crisis were not soaring
madly, a grower might have endured
the deprivation,.
But 'the grower is himself to. blame,
He was told by PatrickJohn
before the election at Weirs Aarigot
that not a cent more could be paid.
Yet most banana. farmers in high glee
disregarded the welfare of themselves
and their families and returned a
dictatorial G'vernment to power for
another five long years.
w.s, .

I am what is called an ageable
Methodist, that is one who was called
a WeaiLeyan as a child, when our Church
was always named Chapel. As far as I
know neither the -Methodisjts; nor the
Roman Catholics were involved in this
Battle of.Religions which took plawe
just before election time.
It is a fact that some pf what I
will call the mushroom sects, the small
newer churches which have so-many dif-
ferent names, and some of them have
benefits to give out such as books,
clothes, training abroad and'so on,
directed their members to vote Labour
because they had been told by Labo~d
Party leaders that if Freedom got in7
they (the foreign-born pastors) would
be deported "since Freedom is against
you, and Preedomites are all Roman
Catholic and Would rule the island.,
I know that this took place at
Portsmouth because I was a witness, to
it ,while, Visiting there, And it also
took place in Roseau where I live..
The argument used was that Patrick
John is now a Protestant ,Anglican)
and is ,sympathetic to all the new
socts from Baptist to Apostolic, and
will suppDrt them to prove that he does
,not discriminate against foreigners
Never were listeners told that Free-
dom was the strongest in favour of
freedom of worship and. that it was the,
only Party where the white.people
played anx0outward and visible part.
Mr* John was lucky that "he be ame a
convert to the Anglican Religion which
made it possible for him to marry again
in church after a divorce and to go
around with a religious label tied on
him. .But nowadays I do not think that
the Anglicans regard themselves as
Protestants as the Northern Ireland
people do. The Ecumenical movement -
put paidto all that nonsense. I don't
even hear us Methodists calling our-
selves Protestants, However I am pro-
testing against the use of religion as
a-political device.
The biggest winner in thd election
bVattle was Obeah. We had no Pundit
this year but we had obeah women, a
mother said to be invoked from the
grave, -and other horrible tricks such.

fortunes in human excreta as in tea-
leaves., These abominations should be

it's A Dog's Life by Patches
Like many another female baby in Dominica- I was bern in very poor
circumstances; .my brothers and sisters all had differ i't'ir and-.
we had -o roof over our heads. 'In fact I
first saw light dimly under a house at the
top of Federation Drive which. was" then shut
up., Some workmen discovered Us puppies and
called the' Carib boy David who lived over
the way. He was my .first and bect human friend. b
He used to come an.d see' us' pups every day,and,
eventually he picked me out frop the litter
and carried me over to show his parents.
"Look at Ragse! daughter!" he said happily.
For nearly two months he had been grieving
because his best doggy companion Rags Twotone,
a newspaper columnist was .foul ly murdered by lY LATE LAMENTED BTHER
a hit-and-run driver., was .thus immediately

it is widely accepted that there is inefficient. in the Civil Service;
what appears to be overlooked .i the fact that there is widespread dissatis.-, ,

The inefficiencies in the Service stem from twq sources; (1) political
patronage which makes supporters of the ruling party a law untot themselves,

by E.G. Lobla.ck
I listened to Premier Patrick John
on Saturday night at Pottersville at
a public meeting. That meeting, he
said, was to thank the people who
gave the Labour Party a landslide
victory. I thought Premier John would
speak on the promises he made to the,
peoi*b if they returned the Labour-
Party to power. Instead of telling
them that he had promised (i) that
every woman who gave birth to a child
in Dominica would get $25; (ii) that
all secondary schools will be free
of charge; police will get their
back-pay and civil' servants' salaries
will be revised immediately, he made
his meeting a target.at Miss Eugenia
Charles, and Messrs.Loblack, Honychurec
and Peltier (who is not connected
with the Freedom Party).
For shortage of space, I will
not go into details of-all that the
-Premier said,. I just want to comment
'on three points he made at that
meeting. He told his listeners to
think of it that Eugenia Charles
has nominated Lennox Honychurch, a.
white man, to be in the House ofr
Assembly He spent a long time on
that -sub.jct.. Some people said that
the way Mr. John spoke about white
people shows that those who have.
harrassed'the white people in Domini-
ca made Patrick and his Labour 'Party
feel-good. White people beware-of
yourselves in this country as far as
the Premier and his Party is concerned
The next point is that he said that
not over his dead body can that man
Peltier have a job in Dominicat that
he, the- Premier and Seraphine will "be
going to Barbados to see the General.
Manager of .LIAT to make Peltier lose
his job. The other point is that he
said they could have won all the '21
seats, but they just gave Miss Charles
a.seat like that; in.other words;, it
is not the people who voted willingly
for Miss Charles it is he who c6om
handed the people to jveO MissCharles
a. seat. Madam Editor, can you beat
In conclusion, I would like to cal
on the white people who are in Domini-
ca to be on their guard.as long as-
Premier Patrick John and his Labour
Party are inpower. That is something
such people all over the world must
watch evyenP er Majesty, the Queen
f ogland .CL.

At the Labour Party Thank You
meeting at Pottersville on Saturday-
the 5th April I heard Mr. P.John ac-
cusing t1e Dominica Freedom Party oJ
practising what Mr. EH. Francis
terms 'Bourgeoism-', because .r.
Honychurch was nominated by the. Free-
dom Party. 'Mr. John, who made men-
tion of the emphasis, that the Free-
dom Party had based its" election cam-
paign on youth, has failed to realise
that Lennox is a youth and much
younger even than his youngest Minis-
terS and the Party was practising
what it preached,
When Lennox wrote the'History of
Domirica' in a hundred episodes, Mr.
John wasn't conscious of the fact that
,Lennox was white. The same thing" can
be said for 'LA PLACE' and aE HIS.
written by Lenaox. At that time
colour of skin did not matter. But
because Lennox is equipped with the
intelligence of.which they are afraid,
iall sorts of bad things will "be said
about him.
I will end by asking whether Mr.
John: .Has E turned tnti-white' or
'Son-of-the-Soil?' EELVIN FRAIICIS
a Methodist I don't~ have to be re-
minded of'the days of Wm.Falconer when
