A TORNADO hit Kortberaad

north of New Amsterdam,
Berbice, on Friday, destroying
several houses and leaving a
number of families home-

water tank flying over utility
poles in the village, residents said.
Shocked villagers said they
had never experienced anything
like the tornado before.
Thirteen-year-old Jermaine
Bishop, who was cleaning a
trench, said he had to hold on for
dear life to a cherry tree as the
strong winds attempted to blow
him away.
No one was seriously in-
jured during the 30-minute or-
deal but Shenella Henry and
Elizabeth Baljit received minor
injuries on the forehead and left
knee, respectively, as they at-
tempted to escape from the
swirling winds.
Ulric Grumble, 62, said he
had just returned from the back
lands where he had left his cattle
to graze when it began to rain.
The rain sent him scamper-
ing for shelter under the lone bus
shed in the village and then he
saw "circular winds" coming
from the east.

in swirls, the tornado ripped
zinc sheets from the roof of the
O'Brien family house and then
lifted the bus shed from its foun-

landed on its roof.

old boy, Julius Fraser, was with
him. "I held on to his hands as
he panicked and had wanted to
As fear gripped villagers, he
said he saw the roof being torn
off from the house of the Hen-
rys before the building fell off
its pillars.
Grumble told the Guyana
Chronicle that the high raging
winds then plucked a huge black
water tank which was on a
seven-foot trestle, lifting it over
the utility poles before dropping
it about 50 feet away.
The twisting funnel shaped
whirlwind then swept to the
western side of the village where
it removed 14 zinc sheets from
the Nicholson home and up-
rooted a mango tree before com-

renovated home of Jagat Narine

family lost all they had in
their collapsed house but are
grateful to be alive. The
mother of three said that for-

Henry said it was a habit of
hers to do her laundry under the
house around the same time the
tornado struck and wondered
what would have happened if
she was there then.
Her daughter Shenella, a
mother of one, was at home
cooking, with her son and
nephew, both three-year-olds.
She said she saw trees shaking
violently outside and then felt
the house suddenly rocking.
The terrified children
grabbed on to her as the house
fell off its pillars and collapsed
some 13 feet to the ground. Al-
though she received minor inju-
ries, the household articles were
destroyed. The Henry house-
hold also include Tricia and
Balgit said he was having

breakfast with his wile Eliza-

"I quickly turned off the
stove and removed the main
switch from the fuse box before

recalled. However, on returning
to the building an hour later, he
observed that his television set
had been destroyed.

he saw a 'gamma cherry' (a fruit

She said she tried to close her

where she found that 14 zinc

Thanks to Ras Allan La

a member of the Guyana

who have openly welcomed me
as an honorary member of the

asked me to take my pick.
Ras Santa Allan was early

from his sack, I picked my cala-

So why is Harold Pinter so
hostile to America? Because he
has been a contrarian almost
from birth. As a teenager he
loudly opposed Britain's war
against Hitler even though he
was Jewish, and fifty-five years
later he was equally opposed to
the Kosovo war because it was
the United States that led the
attempt to prevent a genocide
against the Kosovo Muslims.
It's pure reflex by now; Pinter
even sits on the International
Committee to Defend Slobodan

It was clear that a lot of
work has been done since the
January floods to get the pri-
mary canals and other vital in-
frastructure in better shape and
that some villages, like Hope and
Foulis which were under several
feet of water for weeks earlier
this year, were faring much bet-
ter now.
But somebody somewhere
also clearly nodded off during
the long dry season and the
trenches and canals in many
places, also crucial in quickly
getting flood waters off after
rains, are still blocked.

and nobody had any clear an-

in 1973 for bringing "peace" to
Vietnam. (Kissinger even ac-

co-winner Le Dui cTho had the
dignity and common-sense to
refuse it.)
And why are rants like
Pinter's about to go out of
style? Because what fuels
them is the sense of helpless-

and America's power has gone
into irreversible decline. It is
only dwindling relative to the
rapidly growing economies of
the rising new Asian great
powers, China and India, but
economic power is the founda-

Climate change a major problem

By Sir Ronald Sanders

Caribbean diplomat

NE of the most

conferences for the
future of mankind was held
in Montreal, Canada last
week the United Nations
Conference on Climate
And for a change, it recorded
some success despite the
position of the United States.
The countries, represented
at the conference, agreed to
extend a climate pact, called the
Kyoto Protocol, beyond 2012
when it was due to expire.
This is good news for the
Caribbean even though many
governments in the region were
not represented at a high level at
the meeting.
It is good news because
climate change is linked to the
violent hurricanes and other
disturbing weather that the
region has been experiencing in
recent years with dreadful
Now, if the Caribbean is to
capitalise on this movement in
Montreal, climate change must
become a priority of policy
development and a key part of

- Caribbean should act now

the work of foreign ministries.
The breakthrough in
Montreal occurred largely
because the governments of the
European Union (EU), Japan
and Canada support the
protocol and the lowering of gas
emissions that hurt: the
It was their active work,
supported by developing
countries that resulted in
ministers agreeing to launch
new, open-ended discussions on
ways to fight global warming
despite objections from the
The Kyoto Protocol sets
out limits by which
industrialized countries must
reduce greenhouse gas emissions
and five other gases by 2012.
The U.S. is not a signatory to
the protocol since the
administration of President
George W Bush withdrew the
U.S. after the ; former
government of President Bill
Clinton had signed it.
Now, with the d cision in
Montreal, the protocol will not.
expire and countries, which have:
signed it, will be held to'
lowering these emissions.
However, this will not include
the U.S.
Therefore, before the
world starts cheering Ot what
happened in Montreal,'it has to
be recalled that the United
States alone accounts for about
25 per cent of gas emissions
that are linked to climate change.
So, while a decision has
been made by the signatories to

.the protocol to extend it and to
seek new commitments beyond:
2012 as early as possible, major
polluters are still in business with
no internationally binding
Among those countries with
no restriction are China and India
who have no targets under Kyoto
and who say that rich industrial
states, such as the United States,
have to take the lead in cutting
emissions because they have
already developed their
economies with coal, oil and gas.
Now, they argue, it is the turn of'
the large developing :countries.
On the other hand, both
President Bush and a significant
membership of the U.S. Congress
contend that China and India
ought to be included among the
countries that are restricted since
their industries would be
competing against U.S.
companies n an uneven playing
There is merit in both

arguments, but the perceived
short-term national interests of
countries should not be
paramount over the long-term
interest of the world as a
Further, when climate
change is evidently adversely
affecting countries in the
Caribbean and the Pacific and
I even coastal communities in
Canada, Europe and Asia, the
issue should not be one for

In this regard, the
governments of the United
States, Australia, China, India
and Brazil, who are major
emitters of harmful gases, need
to be engaged by the rest of
the global community -
including the Caribbean to
persuade them to compromise
in the wider global interest.


The argument that the U.S.
economy would be harmed if
the U.S. cut back on its
greenhouse gas emissions is
not a position supported by
former U.S. President Clinton.
Indeed, Mr Clinton turned
up at the Montreal Conference
at the invitation of a Canadian
;group to declare Mr Bush's
position to be "flat wrong".
He also said: "There's no
longer any serious doubt that
climate change is real,
accelerating and caused by
human activities".
Mr Clinton is not the
only senior and serious U.S.


citizen to believe this. So, too,
does a leading U.S. climate
scientist, Dr James Hansen, who
has warned that the world has
just 10 years to act on climate
Dr Hansen says that a rise
of just one degree Celsius in
temperature would take the
Earth into climate patterns it has
not seen for at least 500,000
Well, what does all that
mean? Simply, that if the entire
world but especially the
United States and oth4r large
countries does riot do
something fast and together
about greenhouse gas emissions,
climate change will destroy
many countries, and ki0l many
more hundreds of thousands of
people over the next few years.
At the Montreal
Conference, the World Wildlife
Fund (WWF) confirmed in a
report what we all instinctively
felt: 2005 was the wdrst year
for extreme weather with the
hottest temperatures, most
Arctic melting, worst Atlantic
hurricane season and the
warmest Caribbean waters.
And, increasingly the
scientific community Is saying
that if the present trend
continues, the world will not
avoid an : irreversible
environmental catastrophe.
This is bad news for
everyone, but especially bad for
the Caribbean which has been
battered by' hi rricanes
continuously :now for 10
agonising years, with a
prediction of a further 20 years
to come.
It is timefor Caribbean
governments to riatchet up the

For climate change will

of course, the lives and

State media in our Democracy (1)

The following are excerpts of a presentation
titled the role of the State media in our
democracy made to the GPA 60th
anniversary observance on December 9,


media in Guyana consisted of
?the print the Guyana
,Chronicle (after its merger
with the Graphic in 1976);
radio the Guyana
Broadcasting Corporation
(with the merger of the
Guyana Broadcasting Service
and Radio Demerara) and

In about a decade after
Independence, the pendulum
had swung from total private
ownership of the media to near
complete domination of the
print media and complete
control of the electromagnetic
spectrum by the State. Not that
there was and is any thing
wrong with a viable State
media, but this must not be an
issue of either the State or
private media. Or the
domination of one over the


Our post-Independence

history has shown that the State
media were used as instrument of
repression and to subjugate the
people to the wishes of the
erstwhile dictatorship. The State
media of that time were a strategic
weapon in the arsenal used to
prevent our people from enjoying
The State media were
used to filter information and
disseminate that which was

palatable to the public at large.
Under the days of the PNC regime,
the State media were totally under
the control of the Party in power
with no access by opposition
political parties or other groups
who had views different or
opposed to that of the ruling
Agents of the regime
exercised repressive measures
against the Mirror newspaper
denying it licences for importation
of newsprint, or printing
machinery or parts, often forcing
them to curtail publication. The
Mirror was a frequent recipient
of libel suits. These were efforts
to suppress the Mirror, which

was the main Opposition Press
and a vanguard in the fight
against the violation of human
and political rights, in the denial
of freedom of the Press, an
integral component in any
Let me cite an example:
After one of its closures because
of a lack of newsprint, the
Mirror received an offer of a gift
of twelve rolls of newsprint
from the Caribbean Pulblishing
and Broadcasting Association.
Government refused to grant a
licence for it. At a Press
Conference called to explain the
refusal. Deputy Prime Minister
Ptolemy Reid explained that the

Government would not allow
"those foreign newspapers to
present gifts here" and interfere
with Government's policy
towards the Mirror.
Also. licence
applications from the Catholic
Standard and Mirror for the
importation of bond paper in
1981 were denied on the ground
of insufficient foreign exchange.
The media workers
who reported unfavourable
stories were harassed and
sometimes subjected to
violence. Those employed in the
State media who had views
opposed to the State either lost
their jobs or were threatened
with such loss.
The murder of Catholic
Standard photographer Father
Bernard Darke showed that even

a newspaper affiliated to the
Church could not be spared the
brutality of the then regime. The
Catholic Standard was a fort-
nightly paper up to January
1962 when it became a weekly.
In 1978 the then Government
forced the Standard to reduce the
number of pages by denying it
newsprint. At the time of the
famous Referendum of 1978, the
GNNL ceased printing the
Catholic Standard and its format
and content had to be changed.
Day Clean of the WPA also
underwent harassment.
Later, and after much
international pressure and
changes to the geo-political

configurations, another private
newspaper was allowed to
operate. The Stabroek News was
founded in 1986 and had to be
printed in Trinidad and Tobago
and be transported by aircraft on
a weekly basis. This newspaper
exposed the wrongdoings and
mal-administration of the day,
including human rights
violations, especially the right to
press freedom and free and fair
elections. For this, the paper's
staff were often harassed and
subjected to virulent attacks in
the State media.


The return of democracy and
the ascension of the PPP/C

administration saw the State
Media being converted from a
tool of oppression to vehicles to
promote democracy, social
cohesion, progress and
prosperity. It was a new era too,
not only for the State media, but
the entire media landscape. The
former editor of the Catholic
Standard, Fr. Andrew Morrison
wrote in his book Justice that
"not only that the (PPP/C)
government was less generous in
dishing out libel suits but also
there was for the first time in the
history of Guyana an open door
policy towards the Press,
especially as it related to access
to public officials."
The critical role of the
State media in nurturing
Guyana's infant democracy was
spelt out by the late President
Cheddi Jagan in 1992: "In a
general way, the democratisation
of our society must be matched

by, and mirrored in, a similar
democratisation of the media. I
do not expect to see in.such a
setting a subservient media. Far
from it: the media must be
vibrant, critical and analytical.
They (media) must also report
the views and conditions of the
ordinary people...."
The State media were
now oriented to play their role
of a national support entity to
promote unity, development and
prosperity through the free flow
of news and information, opening
access to the masses and
providing material which was
used to get Guyana back on the
road of progress.
The State policy of
Party Paramountcy was
consigned to the dustbin of
history. The changed role of the
State media was evident. It was
no longer the mouthpiece of the

minder of the devastating
January floods yesterday as
many sections of the housing

People getting in and out of

As a result of the heavy
flooding, President Bharrat

dents that the government is
very concerned about the diffi-

problem is due to the indisci-

have been dumping garbage in
the internal drainage canals,

some of which are already

In addition, a few persons
have built shacks and shops over

Residents concurred and ex-
pressed their unconditional sup-
port to the government to have
these obstacles removed.
The government has con-
tracted H. Nauth & Sons for
emergency excavation of drain-
age canals in the community.
When the Sunday Chronicle vis-
ited yesterday, excavators were

continuing work but were ham-
pered at some points where
shacks have been erected over
the canals.
Residents said a few law-
less persons should not cause
an entire community to suffer
and urged the government and
the City Council to take a firm
stand against those who are
dumping garbage into the drain-
age system and constructing il-
legal structures over the drain-
age canals.

President Jagdeo told resi-
dents of Sophia that in another

out for infrastructure in areas D

similar to those executed in
other areas of Sophia. He also

During the tour, the President listened to several matters of con-

being given to persons from outside of Sophia.
The President explained that it has to be determined whether
several of the unoccupied lots have been issued to other persons
who have not built their houses as yet before any reallocation could .
be made. Nevertheless, he told Baksh the policy should be to give ., ',"

.unambiguous- and,, absolute. It is
binding on all States in all territories
under their jurisdiction or effective
control. It applies in all
circumstances, in times of war as
in times of peace. Nor is torture
permissible when it is called
something else: cruel and inhuman
treatment is unacceptable and
illegal, irrespective of the name we
give it.
States must honour
this prohibition and vigorously
combat the impunity of
perpetrators of torture. Those
who conceive of or authorise
any form of torture and other
cruel, inhuman or degrading
treatment, and those who
commit such acts, should not go
unpunished. Nor may any State
condone torture by a third
party. This means that
individuals must never be
rendered to another State if
there is any danger that doing so
may subject them to torture.
The international
community must speak forcefully,
and with one voice, against torture
in all its forms. Today, I call on all
States who have not done so to
ratify the Convention against
Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman
or Degrading Treatment or
Punishment, as well as the
Optional Protocol to the Torture
Convention. And I urge all States
to allow the United Nations'
Special Rapporteur on Torture
independent access to detainees
within their control. Unimpeded
access is an essential protection for
these individuals, whose isolation
makes them especially vulnerable
to abuse. Together, we must give
voice, and redress, to abused
detainees as well as to all victims
and survivors of torture.
Humanity faces grave
challenges today. The threat of
terror is real and immediate. Yet,
fear of terrorists can never justify
adopting their methods. Nor can
we be complacent about the
broader prevalence of cruel and
inhuman punishment, which in so
many of our societies
disproportionately affects the most
vulnerable people: the imprisoned,
the politically powerless and the
economically deprived. Instead, we
must respond to this evil wherever
we find it by reaffirming
humanity's most basic values.
Today, on Human
Rights Day, let us recommit
ourselves to the principles of
the Universal Declaration of
Human Rights, and let us
rededicate ourselves to wiping
the scourge of torture from the
face of the earth."

Ramdhani 14-year streak in the process

n W to so-"c.

By Faizool Deo
RAYMOND Khalil and
Deodat Etwaroo partnered
well on Thursday night at the
Cliff Anderson Sports Hall to
be crowned new champions of
the Guyana Badminton Asso-
ciation (GBA) Open doubles
The pair maintained a
steady control, and excelled in
their placement to win against
Gokarn Ramdhani and former
Caribbean champion Mark
Chang 15-13, 15-5.
The loss for Ramdhani is
significant since it breaks a 14-
year winning steak. between
1988 and 2002 (the last time the
competition was played before
this year) with his then partner
Shawn Barnwell.
In the first game of the finals,
the eventual runners-up took the
lead and were seemingly on their
way to victory at 13-8, but this
was not to be as they served
short and hit out of bounds a
number of times to bring their
opponents back into the game.
In the end Chang slammed
the shuttlecock into the net to
give the opposition victory.
Game two proved a much
easier battle for the side. with
Khalil and Eltwaroo eltting into.

ber of occasions slammed the
shuttlecock into the net. At the
other end of the court, though.
it was the same as Ramdhani
and Chang. Looking exhausted.
they returned a number of shots
out of bounds and into the nel.

Ramdhani's backhand was also
attacked, as the pair folded, set-
tling for second place.

Guyana not competing in Under-16

Caribbean netball tourney

GUYANA'S junior netball
players due to busy airline
schedules will not be
attending the 2005
Caribbean Netball
Association Under-16 girls'
tournament which was
scheduled to commence
Friday and runs until
December 17 in St Kitts.
President of the Guyana
Netball Association (GNA)
Maxine Parris-Aaron told
Chronicle Sport that Caribbean
Star, the airline of choice for the
championships, could not have
returned the team of 22 (14
players, four standbys and four
officials) before January 8 next
She said that a reduced fare
had been worked out with the
airline a while back. All

arrangements were finalised
except that of a confirmed date
for the return leg of the trip
from Barbados to Timehri.
President of the Caribbean
Netball Association Ms Kathy
Harper-Hall, who was working
with Parris-Aaron on getting all
arrangements in place, indicated
in the first week in November
that the airline agreed to bring
the team back by December 27.
Due to a large number of
people travelling for the holiday
season, it was only late last
week, according to the GNA
president that the airline
contacted her, stating that the
flight arrangements will be
subjected to further change.
Indicating that since the group
fare is a seven-day ticket and
they are already facilitating a

further three days, they can only
take 10 individuals and return
them on January 8.
Parris-Aaron stated that
some of the parents were against
the idea of the children spending
such a long time away from
home, and a decision was made
against attending the tournament.
Another factor that
contributed towards the
executives' decision to call off the
trip was that both coaches
Lavern Fraser-Thomas and
Lawrence Kellman, who are
attached to the Ministry of
Culture, Youth and Sport, failed
to get time off work.
Parris-Aaron said that an
alternative to this was using
coaches from St Lucia and
Antigua as reserves. Neither
island fielded a team for the

competition so both coaches
were willing to assist.
This, however, was a last
resort and only if approved
by the Guyanese participants
and their parents.
With Guyana not
attending the competition
and the girls noticeably
disappointed, the president
said that during the August
holidays next year or
sometime before, the 18 girls
will travel to either Barbados
or Trinidad & Tobago to take
part in a goodwill series.
She also noted that the
GNA will be putting all
funds committed by
individuals and business
entities to assist the team
in a fixed deposit account
until next year.

League (GFL) Thomas
Orderson, who was gunned
down last Sunday night on
the Georgetown Seawall.
Cries were heard by many
family members and close
friends. Standing sturdy and
strong though was Orderson's
father, James Albert Orderson,
former Permanent Secretary
of the Ministry of Agriculture
who in his address to the large
congregation said he is 'not
grieving, but angry'.
"People grief when their
loved one die from old age,
accident, diseases ... all have
explanations, but in Tommy's
case the answer is dangling
somewhere in the air."
He went on to say that his
son's murderer was not only
at fault.
"Tommy was murdered
by a culture, a system which
has come out suddenly in the
realm of Guyana. We have to
blame a set of people who do
not care ... this has to be

remembering the smile on his

wife's face when she looked at
their bouncing baby boy.
Almost venting his pain,
he told the gathering that
they have to experience this
pain of losing a loved one
before they can understand
the feelings.
"When we look at the TV
and see mothers wailing, we do
not know (what they are going
through) and cannot understand
until we ourselves feel it."
Secretary of Santos
Football Club, Lester Kellman,
also paid tribute to the late
Orderson who before his death
held the position of first vice-
president of the club.
He stated that
Orderson's demise 'has left
a void in the football
fraternity'. "No one is
indispensable," he said, "but
I feel that they are some
that the sport cannot do
Tributes were also paid to
Orderson (who was also a Citizen
Bank Manager) by members of
the banking fraternity, who
called him 'a motivator, a man
who got things done' among
other strong terms.

The Real Thing



33.-3 FACH- iEthrl



By Isaiah Chappelle
FOR the 16th year football at
its best will kick off this af-
ternoon at the Mackenzie
Sports Club ground, home to .
the Kashif & Shanghai
Christmas football extrava-
ganza, with original sponsor
Banks DIH Limited.
A triple-header will open
this year's staging, but it is just
a preview of what the real cham-


n ; star Sport

pionship will be like because
the competition battle gets un-
der way from Friday at the
same venue.
This reflects the astronomi-
cal growth of a bet between two
football club bosses and their
quest to provide Lindeners with
good entertainment at home.
The first competition back in
1990 was a double header on
Boxing Day at the same venue,
with four teams fighting to get
into the final on New Year's
Day. Milerock, headed by Greg
Charles, Eagles United headed
by Aubrey Major, Botofago
and Central Hikers played for
$4 000, compliments of Banks
DIH Limited. That was the size
of the tournament.
But the response was tre-
mendous and that encour-
aged Greg Charles and his
friend Aubrey Major to stage
it the following year, this
time involving all the Linden
teams. Then another year,
Santos and CarmpAtwn. the
first city ?ams, were i tvLd

simply call 'WAVE' Brazilian
music would be incorrect and
deny the human benefits this
music offers to all listeners.
Jobim's home was Rio, a

Jobim's interest and gift to

capture, create and transmit

overcomes the pressures and

'The Red Blouse' is an
amazing tune, with Dom Um
Romao's percussion hard and
rhythmic, its knocking
sounds are lush and sexual,
gentle and sweet like slow
steady sex. Indeed the tune
evokes sexual pleasure by fo-
cusing on a red blouse that is
obviously taken off. We
imagine bouncing breasts
caused by love making, while
the beat ebbs and flows, clos-
ing with a sharp pouncing
flute, which blends into the
percussion like orgasmic re-

'Triste' which means sad,
shows us how Jobim con-
quers sadness by his com-

We pass through sadness and
conquer it by surrendering to
the tune's guidance.
'Mojave' is the only tune

on the CD where Jobim evokes
a place away from South
America, the Mojave Desert,
which recreates a mood captur-
ing ancient Native Indian civi-
lizations in North America. The
flute carries this tune like life
blowing in the winds of time.
This is a truly beautiful tune.
Of the other tunes, all of
which are equally brilliant
and equally memorable,
'Antigua' is for me, a
favourite. Flute, percussion,
guitar combined in harmoni-
ous Bossa Nova rhythms; a
truly great South American
tune which evokes the origi-
nality of our civilization by
showing the smooth blissful
blend by Native Indian and
European cultural qualities.
The CD's final tune is. 'Cap-
tain Bacardi', clearly this in
Jobim's raunchy, upbeat,
happy tune evoking sweet
drunkenness. This is tropical
instrumental jazz with a
dance rhythm. Nothing
harsh, just in a good mood;

ing with merriment like the
Christmas mood. Obviously
Bacardi Rum was implied
here. But even without it

for 28 years in '92, gets 13 gyars on appeal

By George Barclay

WHAT some lawyers regard
as inconsistency in sentenc-
ing policy appeared evident in
1992, when the Guyana Court
of Appeal reduced by 13 years
a 28-year prison sentence
imposed on Michael Adams
for raping his 60-year-old
mother-in-law in 1987.
At the time, Defence Coun-
sel Peter Britton, S.C., blamed
the alleged excessive sentence on
the absence of a sentencing
policy, while others saw the 28
years prison term for rapists, as
a step in the right direction.
The Court of Appeal that
reduced the 28-year prison sen-
tence that was imposed by
Criminal Assize judge, Lennox
Perry, was constituted by Jus-
tices of Appeal Cecil Kennard,
Mr. Maurice Churaman and Ms
Desiree Bernard, as she then
While the appeal by Adams
against conviction and sentence
was dismissed, the Appellate
Court, in reducing the term of
imprisonment, held that the
rape sentence was excessive.
Since then some legal pun-
dits including Justice Bovell-
Drakes and Justice Jainarayan
Singh, have been clamouring for

a sentencing policy in relation to
certain offences, so as to ensure
that a standard punishment is
meted out to offenders in simi-
lar fact cases.
It may be recalled, that
one judge (a female) told a
convicted rapist that if she
had the authority, she would
order that he be castrated. A
retrial was ordered by the ap-
pellate court for that particu-
lar accused who was freed at
his re-trial after his niece,
whom he had allegedly raped,
refused to testify against him.
In the appeal in relation to
rapist Adams who escaped with
15 years, defence lawyer Britton
had been asking for a complete
acquittal, based on, among other
things, the admission of hearsay
evidence and misdirection on the
part of the trial judge.
But the Appellate Court af-
ter hearing arguments from Mr.
Britton and counsel for the
State, Mr. Ian Chang, agreed that
although the trial judge had
erred, the error was not fatal.
The appeal was dismissed.
Despite the apparent sym-
pathetic stand by the Appellate
Court in the Adams case, that
Court. by its utterances, re-
garded the circumstances of the
case as sordid.

For in handing down his de-
cision, Justice of Appeal, Cecil
Kennard, President of the Court,
told Adams, "You have commit-
ted a despicable act on your
mother-in-law. Society is getting
very sick. You did not respect
the woman".
The Court of Appeal had
heard submissions by counsel
for the appellant Mr. Peter
Britton, S.C. and Mr. Ian Chang,
acting Director of Public Pros-
ecutions, who, represented the
Adams, of Hague, West
Coast Demerara, committed the
act on October 22, 1987, and
was convicted and sentenced on
May 8, 1992, by Justice
Lennox Perry. He was convicted
by the jury.
He appealed on the
grounds that there was no
medical evidence to prove the

the evidence of the witness,
Victor West, but failed to
render to the jury any assis-
tance whatsoever as to the
use to which they may put
such evidence, and such a
non-direction was tanta-
mount to a misdirection
which deprived the appellant
of a chance of acquittal.
Further, the trial judge
failed to assist the jury ad-
equately or at all with respect

dren spend the Diwali holidays
with her.
The woman testified that
she was in the living room when
Adams pushed her in the bed-
room where he proceeded to
have sex with her against her
She also claimed that
Veronica her grand-daughter
said: "Papa wha yeh doing to
Nani deh?" and Adams or-
dered the child to go down-

to the drawing of inferences re-
garding the condition and non-
production of the panties and
other clothing of the virtual
complainant. .
In his submission, Mr.
Britton had urged the Appellate
Court to suggest a range of sen-
tencing since there is no serious
sentencing policy in the coun-
He pointed out the dispar-
ity in sentencing and submitted
that the appellant's sentence
was unduly severe.
In his response Mr.
Chang conceded that he too
felt that the sentence was ex-
cessive, but added that the
questioning of sentencing
should be left to the trial
judge's discretion.
In handing down the deci-
sion, Justice Kennard referred
to the Prosecution's case stat-
ing that on the day of the inci-
dent, the woman visited
Adam's home where she re-
quested that her four grandchil-

stairs. The other grand-
daughter, Diana, arrived
shortly after and told her fa-
ther the Police were coming.
The woman testified that
when Adams heard that he rolled
off of her and put on his under-
garment before hiding in the at-
tic of the house.
A neighbour had also testi-
fied that he heard the woman
shouting, "Michael you deh wid
me daughter and now you want
to deh wid me to." He also said
that he left and reported the
matter to the Police who arrived
in time to find the accused hid-
ing in the attic.
Justice Kennard noted
that Adam's defence was that
the woman's story was a fab-
rication. The appellant had
contended that he and the
woman had an argument be-
cause she wanted the grand-
children to spend the holi-
days with her.
However, Justice of Appeal
Kennard observed that the trial

judge ought to have given spe-
cial instructions regarding what
the woman testified the children
said. He added that the trial
judge should have warned the
jury to approach the woman's
evidence with caution as she
may have wanted to embellish
her story.
The court found that a voir
dire (a trial within a trial) was
not necessary and that the en-
tire question was about the cred-
ibility of the woman.
Justice of Appeal
Kennard also noted that the
trial judge had told the jury
if they had any doubts as to
the woman's story they
should acquit the accused-
Deeming the sentence
"manifestly excessive" Justice
Kennard observed that Adams
was a first offender and that no
weapon was used.
Justice Churaman also
said he agreed with the lesser
sentence, pointing out that
the criticisms levelled at the
trial judge's summing up
were not fatal to the convic-
tion. The jury, he said, "no
doubt came to the realistic
conclusion that the
appellant's defence of fabri-
cation was a tissue of lies.
In his summing up of the
evidence to the jury, trial
judge Lennox Perry, had,
among other things, told the
jury: "The accused is saying
that she made up this story
because she wants to get the
children away from him (the
accused ) since he did not
agree for them to go to her
home. It is all a question of
fact for you to decide. Do
you think that she would
make up this terrible story
and come here and tell you
just because of that?
"It is a matter for you,
members of the jury. She gave
you a somewhat detailed story.
Did she make it up? The ac-
cused says that she fabricated it.
If you believe that she did so,
then you will have to free the
accused. If you are in doubt as
to whether she made it up or
not, then you will have no al-
ternative but to free the ac-
"Any doubts you have in
your mind with regard to this
matter must be given to the
accused," trial judge Perry
had said.

F WHAT the publishers
are saying is true, then
local history buffs are in
a for a rather rare treat
indeed should they have the
opportunity of laying their
hands on a copy of Guyanese
Basdeo Mangru's latest work,
The Elusive El Dorado, a col-
lection of some eight essays
on the Indian experience here.
According to The Univer-
sity Press of America, which
prides itself in specialising in
scholarly and academic works
in the Humanities and Social
Sciences, the book, which has
just been released, is "thor-
oughly researched, fascinat-
ing," and comprises works,
both published and unpub-
lished, that examine issues in
the indenture and post-inden-
ture periods that are relatively
unexplored in the existing lit-
erature on the Indian diaspora
in the Caribbean.
It even has a listing, in-
clusive of the date of arrival,
of all the various ships that
called here in Port
Georgetown with human
cargo from mainly Calcutta
and Madras, two of the pri-
mary areas in India from which
indentured labour was re-
cruited so as to satisfy the de-
mand for field hands in the
post-emancipation era.

Besides the failure of a
private immigration scheme,
the Bombay presidency and
the disparity in immigration
practices in Madras and
Calcutta, among other critical
issues on which the book
dwells are the fabled hook-
swinging ritual and the efforts
of Christian Missionaries and
other key officials to sup-
press it, as well as the alarm-
ing incidence of Indian wife-
murders, particularly the
causes, and the various ef-
forts to minimise the crime
and deflect criticism.
Hook-swinging, a sort
of sacrificial ritual,
it is said, is prac-
tised in parts of India at a certain
time of year, and involves the
insertion of a pair of large steel
hooks under the skin and mus-
culature of a specially-chosen
young man, called a celebrant,
whose role as the intermediary
of the Gods is to bestow his
blessings upon the children and
produce in each village he passes
The hooks are inserted on
either side of the young man's
back and then attached by strong
ropes to the top of a specially-
made cart, which is hauled from
village to village. At the highpoint
of the ceremony in each village,
the celebrant actually swings

free, supported only by the
hooks embedded in his back, so
as to be better able to dispense
his duties.
This is Mangru's fifth
publication. The former
lecturer at the University
of Guyana (UG) who hails
from Leguan one of sev-
eral islands on the
Essequibo River and has
the distinction of being the
first ever person to have
obtained a Master's degree
locally, also attempts to
evaluate the pressures ex-
erted by the sugar planters
and the Colonial Office to
abolish the return passage
entitlement which was an
indispensable part of the
immigration contract. He
also traces the historical
background of the sensitive
race issue in Guyana so as
to broaden the debate on the
subject and foster a better
understanding of its origin
and development.
ays University Press
of the last two essays
in the publication,
"one highlights the activities of
Bechu, a fearless Bengali immi-
grant who launched a vigorous
and sustained attack on the iniq-
uities of the indenture system,"
which criticism so nettled the
planters they "took unprec-



measures to silence

The other, it says, fo-

cuses on the impressions of
one CF Andrews, reput-
edly a disciple of the late
Mohandas (Mahatma)
Gandhi who paid a visit
here some time in 1929. It
is said that his subsequent
report "not only bemoaned
the pitiable plight of the
Indians, but also offered in-
valuable suggestions for im-

It was his findings and
those of others who came
here, Mangru is quoted as
saying, which spurred an In-
dian nationalist consciousness
here, thus enabling the edu-
cated among the local Indian
populace to articulate their,
concerns with much more
A graduate of the Uni-
versity of London's School
of Oriental and African
Studies, Mangru, whose
research interests are on is-
sues related to Latin
America and the Caribbean
as well as modern India, is
currently teaches History
at City University of New
York (CUNY)'s York Col-
lege and Social Studies at
John Adams High in New
York City.
He has published exten-
sively and is author of
'Benevolent Neutrality: In-
dian Government Policy
and Labour Migration to
British Guyana, 1854-
1884' (London, 1987); 'In-
denture and Abolition: Sac-

Guyanese Sugar Planta-
tions' (Toronto, 1993) and
'A History of East Indian
Resistance on the Guyana
Sugar Estates, 1869-1948'
(New York, 1996).
According to University
Press, those of Indian ex-
tract here who are inter-
ested in researching their
roots will find the informa-
tion contained in this text,
especially the bit about the
dates of arrival of the vari-
ous vessels, invaluable. "It
is also a valuable resource
for genealogists," the pub-
lishers say.

SUNDAY CHRONICLE December 11 2005

I AM writing from the UK to
thank you for the first bit of
advice that has ever made
sense to me.
I have lived for many years
with a "good" man who has pro-
vided me financial security and
the sort of life I dreamed of liv-
ing. Unfortunately, I knew that
although I cared about him and
we had similar interests and life
values, I didn't truly love him.
I spent the best part of 20 years
trying to make this marriage
work. I perfected the art of be-

ing a wife,
mother, and lover. The truth.
though, was always just be-
neath the surface.
He loves me deeply, but at
the same time has always cho-
sen to do what he wants, when
he wants, with no compromises.
I stupidly tried all sorts of
ways to make the relationship
what I wanted it to be, becom-
ing a doormat, and eventually
becoming depressed. I managed
to kick myself out of depression
and started studying and creat-

ing a new life for myself.
However, the habit of be-
ing in a relationship is hard to
kick, and I find myself trying to
repeat my original mistake by
thinking I can awaken love and
sexual interest in my husband
for the sake of the children and
everything we have built to-
gether. What I really want is to
have a life of my own and
maybe someday finding some-
one I truly know I love.
The answers you have pro-

vided to other distressed people
have helped me see what I have
been doing to myself and to him.
I've always listened to others'
advice that staying together is
best, but the truth is, it is if you
are with the right person, and
it is not, if you're not. I realise
now a relationship can be addic-
tive even if the goodies are poi-
soning you. Thank you again.
Suzanne, most people say
"thank you" many times each
week, but there is a huge dif-
ference between saying thank
you and feeling gratitude.
There is a much larger differ-
ence between doing what we
are supposed to in a relation-
ship and experiencing love.

My 5augter
I AM divorced. Visitation with my daughter has been a
nightmare. MNI e\-wil'e akes me to court t"ice a Near trn-
ing ever thing Nhe can to keep me from seeing nm child. I
Thought this would pass. \\e are both remarried, but this
behaviour of hers continues.
There is, absolutely ni legitimate reason ,why I
shouldn't be able to hate a relationship with my daughter.
To make matters worse. the judge is a female with a repu-
tation as a man-hater. It's always the same thing in the
courtroom; my e.x-wife puts on the "poor pitiful me" show
eiery time. I'm tired of wasting money on altorne'"s fees.
not to mention being ordered to pay hers.
Marc, your ex-wife is attempting to erase you from her
past. She is acting as if your child is hers m ith another man.
There are several things you can do short of paying more
to an attorney. First, maintain a consistent attempt to see your
daughter. Send cards. make calls, and show up. That accom-
plishes nrtwo things: it shows your determined mindset, and it
may wear down your ex-wife and her new husband into let-
ring you have reasonable visits.
Second, make sure your daughter knows how much you
want to be in her life. Start a scrapbook and keep it in a posi-
tive light. Record memories of your visits with her, save copies
of the cards .son send and pictures of gifts you give. Bring a
camera on visits and take pictures.
What our children most want is proof that we have never
stopped loring them and never stopped wanting to be in their
lives. WIhat your daughter will most value in the future is the
knowledge that you have been rooting for her all of her life.

BERBICIAN and mother of
two, Mrs. Pamela Vanessa
Rose persevered through
heavy financial and other
costs to complete the last two
years of her Bachelor's De-
gree at Turkeyen, Georgetown
and to win the title of the Best
Graduating Student of the
Berbice Campus at the fourth
Graduation exercise held at
Tain last Saturday.
Rose earned the honour for
being the student who had com-
pleted a Bachelor's Degree at the
University of Guyana
Berbice Campus with the high-
est grade point average.
This achievement also
earned her the right and privilege
to deliver the valedictory address
to the 169 persons who received

In her valedictory address.
the successful but "humble"
woman said that her journey
through University had been a
pleasurable one of rising levels
of awareness and widening and
deepening perceptions of the
value of education and the role
of the University in this respect.
She said that these journeys
in academic awareness had be-
come literal in her last two years
when she had to travel frequently
from Berbice to Georgetown at-
tracting quite a lot of financial
and other costs which she had to
treat with in a resolute way in
order to accomplish her objec-

"At Turkeyen, exposure to
lectures with students from all
over Guyana provided for engag-

at both UGBC and Turkeyen
proved very beneficial to me."
In her address, Rose stressed
that one thing she would like to
see in the near future is the con-
tinuous expansion of the human
and physical resources of the
UGBC so that it could become
ever more effective in fulfilling
its mandate.
She urged that the library, as
a matter of urgency, should be
expanded and equipped to facili-

A WOMAN e-mailed me and she wrote,
"My husband and I are thinking of
starting a family soon. My
gynaecologist suggested that I get a complete
physical and dental examination. I under-
stand why I should see a physician, but why
is it so important to see my dentist? "

Here is my answer to that
"Your gynaecologist sug-
gested a history and physical
examination prior to preg-
nancy in order to assess your
overall health, your nutri-
tional status, and to deter-
mine the presence of any
chronic or acute illnesses that
might affect the health of
your baby. Conditions such as
malnutrition, high blood pres-
sure, diabetes, and gum infec-
tion could increase the risk of
a pre-term birth. In addition,
during your physical, you will
be asked whether or not you
are taking any prescribed or
over-the counter medications.

Many pharmaceutical agents,
even aspirin, have been found
to be harmful to the foetus,
especially in the first trimes-
ter of pregnancy (the first
three months)."
or all of the above rea-
sons, women consid-
ering pregnancy
should receive a complete dental
check-up, as well. We tend to
think of health of the mouth and
its structures as being separate
from the health of the body. Re-
searchers are discovering more
and more connections between
oral diseases and their impact on
systemic health.
When dentists begin to
study dentistry, they are

told, "you are not study-
ing the mouth, but people
with mouths." Just as your
physician conducts a thor-
ough health evaluation,
your dentist will examine
your mouth to assess your
overall oral health and to
determine the presence of
any acute or chronic condi-
tions of the intra-oral cav-
ity that may affect the
health of your baby.
pregnancy places stress
on all aspects of a
woman's health, in-
cluding her dental health. Prelimi-
nary studies have shown that
hormones during pregnancy can
change the chemical makeup
within the mouth. This might
result in an increased risk of gum
disease if brushing and flossing
aren't performed regularly.
Tooth decay may also accelerate
more quickly if morning sickness
is severe. This is a result of stom-
ach acids lingering in the mouth
after vomiting which can be ex-

tremely corrosive to vulnerable
teeth. Rinsing the mouth as soon
as can be tolerated is the best
way to prevent further damage.
Oral infections during
pregnancy not only affect
maternal health, but may also
pose a health risk to her un-
born child. Preliminary re-
search has recently shown
that women with gum disease
are seven to eight times more
likely to deliver premature
infants with low birth
weights. Scientists believe
that the presence of a low-
grade infection may influence
the body to discharge sub-
stances associated with pre-
term birth. Often antibiotics
are one of the treatments for
infections such as periodon-
titis, but like all medications,
they can cross placental bar-

riers and may affect fetal
health. Therefore, dentists
prefer to use them cautiously
when treating pregnant
For most dentists, the
approach to dental care in
pregnant women is dedi-
cated to maintaining good
oral health during preg-
nancy through preventative
measures. More extensive
treatment is generally con-
ducted only when it cannot
be safely delayed. Dentists
use the trimester as a guide
in how to proceed in the
dental care of their preg-
nant patients.
During the first trimes-
ter, prophylactic treatment
cleaning is generally per-
missible. However, dental
procedures that can wait
will generally be postponed
until the second trimester.
Your dentist may want to
examine your mouth for
hormonal changes that may
result in oral diseases. Pro-
cedures that can't wait, or
conditions requiring imme-
diate intervention may be

carried out at this time.
Again, elective procedures
should be postponed.
Dental care during the
third trimester may be car-
ried out but dental health
care professionals have to
be alert to a condition
known as supine hypoten-
sive syndrome. Lying flat
for extended periods of
time during the third tri-
mester of pregnancy can
compress the major veins
and arteries and ultimately
may result in loss of con-
Regular dental exami-
nations combined with
daily brushing and flossing
aren't just good for oral
health. They also help pre-
vent conditions that affect
the entire body. If you are
considering pregnancy or
are already pregnant, don't
forget the importance of
professional dental care
and good oral hygiene mea-
sures. This will never be
more important than during
pregnancy, when two lives
are involved.

According to the MSM

Matthew and St. Luke.

the cross on which Jesus was
Historians are somewhat
unsure exactly when Christians
first began celebrating the Nativ-
ity of Christ. Some people be-
lieve that Christmas originated
in the 4th century as a Christian
substitute for pagan celebrations.
Although the Gospel, de-
scribes Jesus' birth in detail they
have never mentioned the date,
so historians are not really sure
on what date he was born. The_..
Romnif Catholic Church chose
December 25 as the day for the

Feast of the Nativity in order to
give Christian meaning to exist-
ing pagan rituals, and have over
the years succeeded in combin-
ing them to create many long-
standing traditions of Christmas.
Some people think of Christ-
mas as a religious occasion A
time when Christians celebrate
the birth of Jesus Christ a time

Chronicle that when
Guyana Stores Limited di-

opted to provide employ-
ment for herself. She
thought about carving a
niche in the home econom-

They say that curtains
usually have two pieces -
the drapes that fall to the
floor or other desired
length, and the valance or
top treatment, which, as
the name suggests, is at-

information about curtains

can help you to decide

You can also draw on the
expertise of Jewel Halley,
who is versed in floral ar-
rangements. Hers are truly
rich and elegant. Twenty three-
year-old Jewel launched into
floral arrangements six year
ago while she was still at high
school. She is self-taught.
Four months ago, she
opened J & J Classique En-
terprise at 35 Victoria Road
in her home village Plaisance,
East Coast Demerara, from
where she trades in general
interior decorating, fabric and
clothing designing and cloth-
ing and accessories merchan-
She confirms that at this time
of year. customers are hyped up
over floral arrangements. When
we visited her shop last week,
she had a variety of varying
height, shape and colour-blends
on display.
Halley's father is an art-
ist who once specialised in ce-
ramics. Perhaps her artistic
flair is secured in her genes,
since she has learnt a lot about
art from her dad. The orienta-
tion of her knack for this type
of work is trivial in compari-
son to its substance. With flo-
ral arrangements, the Sunday
Chronicle assures you that
Jewel from Plaisance is good.
There is a certain sophisti-
cation about her pieces, which
she arranges with different types
of flowers.
Silk and dried flowers, vinyl
flowers, wooden flowers and
dried fillings such as grass, sticks,
and flowers are what she config-
ures for placement in any part
of the home or office. Their in-
tended showcase area determines
the shapes and sizes of the ar-
Halley's vases -for floral
arrangements add that dis-
tinctive touch of class and
premium to her work. Ce-
ramic, red clay and drift wood
bases for flowers are her call.
She explained that drift wood
is derived from the seashore.
They are dried and lacquered
for longevity. Flowers are
later wedged to the wood in
creation of arrangements.
Dried sea moss that is
fashioned at the top of the
vase where flower stems are
stuck create the real lustre of
flowers naturally in bloom.
Moreover, Jewel has an inge-
nious way of weaving ribbons
into some of her creations.
If you want your home
or office to glow with flow-
ers this season, arrange for

SUNDAy C L e Ix?

The Excerpt
The greatest ideas are the simplest.

Now there was something to be done. They worked
with passion. Piggy was so full of delight and expand-
ing liberty in Jack's departure, so full of pride in his con-
tribution to the good of society that he helped to fetch
wood. The wood he fetched was close at hand, a fallen
tree on the platform that they did not need for the as-
sembly; yet to the others the sanctity of the platform
had protected even what was useless there. Then the
twins realized they would have a fire near them as a
comfort in the night and this set a few littluns dancing
and clapping hands.
The wood was not so dry as the fuel they had used
on the mountain. Much of it was damply rotten and
full of insects that scurried; logs had to be lifted from
the soil with care or they crumbled into sodden pow-
der. More than this, in order to avoid going deep into
the forest the boys worked near at hand on any fallen
wood no matter how tangled with new growth. The
skirts of the forest and the scar were familiar, near the
conch and the shelters and sufficiently friendly in day-
light. What they might become in darkness nobody
cared to think. They worked: therefore with great en-
ergy and cheerfulness, though as time crept by, there
was suggestion of panic in the energy and hysteria in
the cheerfulness. They built a pyramid of leaves and
twigs, branches and logs, on the bare sand by the plat-
form. For the first time on the island, Piggy himself re-
moved his one glass, knelt down and focused the sun
on tinder. Soon there was a ceiling of smoke and a bush
of yellow flame.
The littluns who had seen few fires since the first
catastrophe became wildly excited. They danced and
sang and there was a partyish air about the gathering.


-1. Write a letter to a friend incorporating some of
the information found in the passage. Pretend that you
were on a cruise and got left behind with some other
stragglers on a small island in the Caribbean.

2. Pretend that you were the writer of the passage
and you were asked to let the littluns suggest activities
to keep them active and happy. Write down what you
would make them participate in.

Personal Note: What have you mastered well in
your writing so far? Check and come up with a fair
answer, and then resolve to add more skills to improve
reader-interest. Remember that the passage is care-
fully chosen to add to your experience.


Write a story based on the picture below. Let it be
approximately 400 to 500 words in length. You must
write in Standard English.

Grammar Reminder:
1. Adjective clauses create a variety in sentence
2. An adjective clause is a subordinate clause that
modifies a noun or pronoun. For example: We have
a cat named Jennifer.
3. An adjective clause that is not needed to make
the meaning of a sentence clear is set off by commas.
4. An adjective clause usually follows the word
it modifies.
5. Adjective clauses may be introduced by the
relative pronouns (who, whom, whose, that, and
which) and by the subordinating conjunctions where
and when.
6. At times the relative pronoun is dropped at the
beginning of an adjective clause.
For Example: This is a story even science en-
thusiasts should read. [The relative pronoun that
has been omitted]
Solution to "Add an Adjective Clause"
Add an adjective clause to each sentence below,
using correct punctuation.
1. My sister, Theresa, keeps a diary which is too
big to fit under her pillow.
2. He writes a lot about children who are left on
their own and about cats that keep their company.
3. Sometimes-Leslie, whom my sister likes best,
also writes for the school paper which was aban-
doned by its past editor.
4. James, who lives in Suriname, wrote a great
recipe about how to make chocolate moose cake.
5. The school canteen chef, who has gained fifty
pounds, wants him to do a feature story about beat-
ing the bulge.
Solution to "Find the Adjective Clause"
1. Samuel Rodney Thomas wrote stories under a
pseudonym, which is another word for a pen name.
(The adjective clause modifies the word "pseud-
2. Thomas, who lived from 1902 to 1984, used
the pseudonym A. Penny. (The adjective clause modi-
fies the word "Thomas.")
3. Thomas contributed a number of articles to a
humour magazine, which he had founded in
Bridgeton in 1958. (The adjective clause modifies the
word "magazine.")
4. He wrote a daily column that was humorous
and witty. (The adjective clause modifies the word
5. As A. Penny, Thomas published many stories
that were sympathetic and touching. (The adjec-
tive clause modifies the word "stories.")
6. He created unusual plots that ended in surpris-
ing ways. (The adjective clause modifies the word ".")
7. The Six Diamonds, which is a collection of
A. Penny's short stories, was published in the year
1976. (The adjective clause modifies the name "The
Six Diamonds. ")
8. "The Power of Love" is a story that many
people enjoy. (The adjective clause modifies the word
9. Another A. Penny work that is very popular
is "The Frightened Cat." (The adjective clause modi-
fies the word "work.")

10. Readers who enjoy the unusual and the hu-
morous will delight in the short stories of A. Penny.

The verb that follows a noun of amount is plural if
the noun refers to many individual units: Almost thir-

The verb is singular if the noun refers to one single
unit: Thirteen hundred bolts is a lot.

The popularity of zoos with school parties is really
slightly queer. It is not explained simply by saying that
children like looking at animals. Children like looking
at many other things a swell, films about space travel,
for instance, or football matches, or motor races or
men digging holes in roads, but these are far less fre-
quent objects of organized visits. Nor does the plea
of educational value do more than provide a face-sav-
ing excuse for what it is in reality a holiday excursion;;
and the gayer the better. It would be difficult to in-
corporate the habits of the praying mantis into even
the most fundamental scheme of religious instruction,
and it is almost impossible to underrate the mind-im-;`
proving qualities of the monkey -house, even regarded!!
as a daring advance on birds, bees, and flowers. The
true explanation is surely that between school and zoo
there exists a likeness, plus heaven knows what dis-
likes; but even the dislikes have their origin in that ob-
servable sense of oneness with school children feel
with wild animals.

Emergency treatment of burns

LAST week, we mentioned
that there are different types
of burns with varying inten-
sities. Let's look at each type
of burn more closely and deal
with their respective treat-


The chemical burns with
which we veterinarians are most
confronted result from the pa-
tients' encounters with acids
and alkalies. Recently, more
and more, I have been seeing
burns on dogs/cats' skins which
originate from the misuse of
anti-parasite chemicals. Most
medications (baths) have to be
diluted before application to a
pet's skin. Perhaps the logic "if
a little will help, then a lot will
help more" leads pet owners to
use stronger-than-recommended
concentrations of an anti-para-
sitic chemical. This sometimes
results in "burning' of the skin.
But let's get back to the
problem of acid/alkali burns.

Believe it or not, most of these
cases are not accidents but will-
ful, malevolent, wicked, brutal
and depraved acts of cruelty
meted out to dogs and cats -
lowly domestic animals that are
in the care and custody of man-
kind. I maintain that any human
being that has the evilness of
soul to throw acid on a cat or
dog, is quite capable of disfigur-
ing a man, woman or child by
the same means.


i) Clip the hair on and
around the burnt area, if the ani-
mal will allow you
ii) Wash the site of the burn
with a lot of water
iii) Rinse the spot with a
baking soda solution. The solu-
tion is made by mixing four level
tablespoons full of baking soda
into a pint of water.
iv) You may place more ice
packs (crushed ice in a cloth) on
the wounded area in order to re-
duce swelling, inflammation and
the pain.

v) Later, especially if the
hair is falling out and the skin is
sloughing, you may have to use
a soothing ointment that is mixed
with an antibiotic (e.g. zinc ox-
ide with an antibiotic ointment)
vi) Contact your veterinar-
ian for further advice
N.B. If you have, in fact,
witnessed the dastardly act of a
person throwing an acid on an
animal, you may report this
crime to the Guyana Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals (GSPCA) to a Veteri-
narian or to the police.


The steps (i), (ii) and (vi)
advocated for acids burns above
can be followed.

However, in the case of
caustic soda (or any other alkali)
burns, one must wash the
wounded area with a weak acid
solution (Acids counteract Alka-
lies and vice versa). The solution
can be made by mixing two
tablespoons of cooking vinegar

(e.g. EHP White Vinegar) to a
pint of water.
Please note that if the skin
is bruised and you wish to take
steps to prevent a secondary
infection, you may wish to use
an antibiotic ointment (as sug-
gested in (v) above). However,
in the case of caustic soda (al-
kali) bums, I would not use the
Zinc Oxide Ointment recom-
mended above for acid burn
Lastly, perhaps I should
mention that anytime the burns
are severs and cover more than
50 per cent of the animal's sur-

face area, you may wish the
treatment of the other types of
bums (electrical, solar radiation,
hot water, etc.)
Please implement dis-
ease preventative measures
(vaccinations, routine
dewormings, monthly anti-
heartworm medication,
etc.) and adopt a pet from
the GSPCA's Animal
Clinic and Shelter at Robb
Street and Orange Walk, if

you have the wherewithal
to care well for the ani-'--
mals. Do not stray your
unwanted pets, take them
to the GSPCA Clinic and
Shelter instead. Also, find
out more about the
Society's free spay and
neutering. programme. If
you see anyone being cruel
to an animal, get in touch
with the Clinic and Shel-
ter by calling 226-4237.
