CANDID COMMJENTS..-,'- A National Certificate of Education by W.S.Ste;vens
"Education,," said the lct Canadian Premier Lester Pearson at the
Commonwealth Education Conferene 'f 1964 in Ottawa, "is the most import-
-nt subject of our time". So it Is good to see here a move to.bring
education up -to date.
But since Education is, everybody's, business, people are uneasy and
alarmed-when an important piece of 'education improvementt is declared
and set up without the community beingtold what was afoot. .
Even if the Government of Dominica contains a few educated persons
of the State, the supposed uneducated many in the community ought to be
given an opportunity to participate on what virtually concerns them.
The subjects which this National Certificate will include are:
English, Mathematics, Domestic Econormy, French etc. It is to be a Nation-
sa Certificate. What subject is on the certificate that will make it
truly national? English and Maths are tooZsa. The child must speak and
write" every 'day. QOqmonnication is ,a must. The child must reckon. Hun-
dreds of people "are'being exploited 'and robbed every day because they
lack literacy and "numeracy".
On any national curriculum on certificate there must be CIVI08, the
subject which teaches: true citizenship -- something absolTtely necessary
in our discordant, andisiordered Third Worldl Civics teaches, the citizen
of tomorrow how they are governed. In our supposed democracy the youth
must know the three very essential parts of our national set-up, The
Legislature which~makes the laws; the Executive which carries, them out
and-administers; and the Judiciary or ,the Courts which are independent of
either the Legislature o 3 the ,Executive.
Tefe youth must be .fully acquainted with the functions of each Minis-
ter of the Executive; that being the case, he must understand the proper
working of the Constitution. The method of voting is his particular
busine-ss. He certainly cannot be left to the whims and fancies Of any
unscrupulous party election officer-when an election is mounted. hurther,-
the pupila must learn at school how anL. where the nation gets its money
and how it..spends it. He should be made capable of deciding the nation's-
priorities. He- must be able to judge and' express; his view as to whether
-frequent promiscuous travelling abroad by Ministers is more invortant
than looking after bad latrines in schools, .medicines and 'drugs or-roads
for peasants.
The school, to cut the matter short, must concentrate on producing
a CITIEN as fully educated as possible, As a Minis:ter of'Education, I
directed that a copy o'f the Estimates approved be sent to each school to
assist in the teaching of Civics. The main use made of it was'to see
who had a bigger salary than somebody else: -
The -exclusion'of Civics from a National Certificate of Education
will give ride to suspicion that the authorities do not wish ,the nation
to be able to scrutinize the things which make. for the Nation's Peace,
Progress and Prosperity. .

IERM COMES NORTHI SEA OIL a great boon to the .British
SNorth Sea oil production has started to flow for Britain. The histor-
-ict moment was when oilmen more than S00 miles east of Scotland opened a
valve and the first oil flowed into a 35,000 ton tanker. It takes about
six days to fill the tanker, This first North Sea Oil- load was landed at
British Petroleum's Refinery near .London on June 18. The field was dis-
covered in August 1971 and is the most southerly commercial oil deposit
found in the British sector. Total North Sea Oil production this year
is expected to between one and two million tons; production will equal
Britain's consumption by 1980. (Hamilton Bros. Argyll, Production Rig),

-T H T P.1. It IXS Q U I-R Y
.Recently the. CSA newsorgan VILVPOINT printed an article which con-
tained the following paragraphs:-
"Even without the recent arrests which were made in connections with
mis-appropriation of funds at the Public Works Division there would still
be a need for a thorough :inquiry into all aspects of thA operations of
the Public Works Division...
The connotation Public Waste Department is not a mere witticis, but
a graphic reflection on the gegeaally held opinion -about the operations
of that Division. As the union representing the vast majority of public
servants in the State, public criticism and lack of trust in the opera-
tions of any Government department is a matter of concern. to the".C.S.A.
.It is. as'a reflection of its interest in seeing the civil service func-
tion as an efficient organisation, above public suspicion, that the:
-CS.A. has asked the Minister for Copnunication & Works Mr, Oliver
Seraphine to institute a public inquiy_ into all aspects of the operations
of the Public Works Division over the last -two, decades.
he, Minister, 'however, did not. tai- the Association's initiative too
kindly., and in a reply to the Association, launched a personal attack on ,
C-,.S.A. General Secretary Charles Savarin aond the Editorial Staff of, the'
EiMe h Chronicle...
The Minister d.idconicede his concern with the. situation, but gave. do
indication that a public inquiry would be held. Unlss the Minister can

supporters, at public works', 'deals involving -eighty? five thousand dollars.
worth of,tyres etc., the whole question of arrests at the P*W.D. will
look like a smoke -screen to cover up bigger, malpractices involving bigger,
people than those presently being questioned. Itt can be said that the
Minister himself, is on trial before the Court of Public Opinion.",

The need& for the Inquiry is still, urgeit. Rumours. of a cement deal,
a tyre deal, chauffeur deals, and "dead souls" etc. are rampant The.
worst rumour is that the.:whole matter is being secretly dropped: this
'Will leave the Dominica. public with a Qynical attitude towards calls IFr_
reform and efficiency put forward, by Ministers of Government. 'No doubt
the British Development Division, which, has invested so .much money, in
various Public Works projects, would -be glad. to assist in. this inquiry.

I read 'in the STAR of June. 26 a response by Joey Vanterpool, Reuters
Correspondeit, to my article captionedi, "The' Danger'-.of Badi News'" which
appeared in'the STAR of the' previous .week.,
Mr. Vanterpobl has failed to 3ealise that all articles which bear
my, name. in ,the STAR and elsewhere are. written by mE and whenever I repre-
sent any person or persdas it will be stated. *
Talking about patriotic worth, Mr. Vanterpool will agree that some
of -our patriotic citizens-are. not individuals who have. toiled and toiled
to keep the island up -to a. certain standard nor those: who returnid-to-
the country out of their goodness, to make a contribution; but sometimess
th6se who came back for other reasons, including their annoyance at
events in a White Country, The most genuine, recent example of- patriotic
worth is the late Raphael Registe.
When anyone does not say I"Burn the Dreadsi Yill them: Beat-them
: to death", or remain silently.bowed when Jirasek was murdered, when white
tourists were spat on, when lMcen.ez almost lost his head and when the '
CanadiaT; flag was burnt, the,.wickOd followers-of the. Oppressor,and the
Pharoah himself try to twist what was said or not said into some form of
malice,, (concluded on page six)
