APOLOGY TO OUR
"First Freedom" Denied To Aliens
AST WEEK we assured our readers, after certain enquir-
ies, that "No s u c h legislation'' (to suppress
freedom of speech and expression) "is in
the course of preparation by the Government bf Dominica."
The quotation came from the Chief Minister's Permanenc
Secretary. He was ironically right. Such regulations, we
now understand from a reliable source with access to Gov,
eminent information, had already been prepared and enacted
many months ago, and are in process of being implemented.

Portsmouth Fire Volunteers
With joy the people of Portsmouth are now seeing
their fine Fire Volunteers in real fire uniforms, which
reminds us that good things come to those that wait.
Some time ago His Honour the Administrator visited
Portsmouth and saw the volunteers at fire practice, which
impressed him. If he is responsible for having our volun,
teers so well fitted out, I ne'w say on behalf of those gallant
firefighters a hearty "thank you" for those uniforms which
brought relief and recognition to those men, who really
deserve what they have long waited for.
To their Deputy Chief Fire Officer, Portsmouth says
"the same to you a hearty thank you": we hope it will
not be long from now when some of those volunteers will
be made regulars.
Our town is getting more modern, and a survey to
consider the building of a proper station for the safety of
lives and property in Portsmouth is well needed, for at pre-
sent strangers are coming to visit our shores and one of their
questions is "have you get firefighters in case of a major
outcry, and where are they and their equipment being
housed?" So please let us help those that want to help
themselves. Perhaps the volunteers' wishes will soon come
true: keep it up!

Conclusion Of His New York Talk -
(Reported in the Trinidad Guardian and Barbados Beacon)
"I should not be surprised if the British Government make an appeal
to the U. N. to be granted Independence ftom the Windward and Leeward A ..
Two WEEKS AGO, we reproduced part of a talk given
by Sir Arthur Lewis, noted West Indian Ecunomist, g
to an audience in New York on the break up of the old
Federation and the prospects of a new Federation of the aJF
Eastern Caribbean. According to Dr. Lewis, delay in the ..
Federal talks is very unfortunate. '*
Sir Arthur said Mr. Gairy's position was always "one
of vacillation." He committed himself on two sides. He 6
signed a "secret agreement" with Dr. Williams to bring '
Grenada into Trinidad as a unitary state and then he turned
around and made an agreement with the Windward and -i
Leeward Group. Gairy's main problem, according to Sir 72*1
Arthur, was that he was unable to find suitable terms-
"for Gairy, not Grenada.' .'
PNM Shocked J I
PNM, he said, had been shocked by the election re, -
suits of 1961. The party was formed along nonracial lines.
He was sure that Dr. Eric Williams was 'non-racialist'.
But it became clear in the 196I elections that politics in
Trinidad "bad crystallised along racial lines".

they merely chattels and appendages? If
they are people, they should be given
consideration in their own right. We
are shocked to learn that up to the time of
writing this editorial, the Social League
of Catholic women have received no
definitive reply to their petition requesting
separate assessments for the working wives
of male taxpayers. In lieu of this separate
tax assessment, the women asked for a
bigger tax allowance, so that their hus,
bands' total earnings would not be unfairly
penalized by being brought into a higher
income tax bracket. What has been the
fate of this petition, submitted to Govern,

a stepchild or legally adopted child aind
an illegitimate child being with and
maintained by the person charged".
All of us know that in the past certain
persons in Dominica would say they had
'adopted children' who were, in effect, no
better treated than little slaves. Those
juvenile unfortunates, coming from poverty
into relative plenty, seldom got educated;
they did odd jobs and their position was
subsidiary to that of the family. But in
cases where children are recognized as
children of the family, and given every
advantage including higher education, and
where (as in a unique case of which we
have personal knowledge) they have been
considered as adopted children under
federal law and internationally, being
totally dependent upon their adoptive
parents, why should they not be considered
at adopted children just as a common
law wife is considered in civilised coun,
tries as a wife?
I am a Loyal supporter
of our Labour Governmet.t and
always find it funny when you write
things about them and they do not
reply to put these facts right. Take
the question of peasants and crown
lands raised in an editorial you prin-
ted. i feel certain that Govern-
ment would be only too glad to
publish the names of all those whom
they have sold crown lands to since
they came into power, and that this
would definitely show that the most
of these land buyers are peasants and
not civil servants, friends and so
fotth buying big lots. Let them
please print the list and give the
amounts of land, the position of the
plots and the amount of land sold.
That would satisfy cash and all. I
understand all this was gazetted in
the old days.
(,Devizes and Winchester in the

don evening papers proclaimed a
"Tory tonic" in the result-, and Sir
Alec, before going off to Scotland
fot the Whitsun holiday, said how
encouraging he found the result.
For a defeat and three reduced ma,
joritnues to be found encouraging

that the Conservatives expected to
lose Devizes and were pleasantly sur-
prised when they won. The pleasure

Our Sad Moment
ON Thursday May 7, the sad news arrived that our good school-
master would be transferred on the Friday. Therefore a farewell party was
given by the assistant teacher Mrs, Desabaye -'n Friday evening.
This parting with Mr. D. Nicholas, who for nine years had been a
good headmaster o" Pichelin Governm:nt School, was one of the unhap,
priest days in our village. Both the children and grown-ups were sad at
this parting. There was as much tryingg as if some great man had passed
For the farewell, the people and children gathered at the schoolroom
with Mr. Selwyn Nelson as chairman. There, many -ddresses were given
by the teachers. Afterwards, the school-children sang songs such as
"Auld Lang Syne", then messages from absent pupils were read as well
I as verses composed by schoolgirls. Finally refreshments were served.
When Mr. Nicholas was ready to step out, he once more said "Fare
you well!" and went out of the school sobbing, amid shouts of "Promise
to return to see us once more!" On his way, he was given presents and
bouquets of flowers. Even the front of his car was decorated with lilies,
ferns and roses. But where will he continue his good wormc We don't
know yet! -ExPupil Pichelin.

Film Review -- by P. S. A.
My Struggle (Mein Kampf) -- of Adolf Hitler.
This astounding documentary film should be se-e by all Adults,
save those who experienced the horrors of National Socialism and world
war and hardly require a stark reminder.
As a work of ait the film is imperfect; there are far too many
goosestepping and mass-rally shots; same revealing Nazi utteraces arc
passed over; there is not enough contrast omitted, for example, are
scenes of beauty of the German landscape and the extraordinary docility
of German women who lived near the confines of Xuschwitz and Buch-
enwald and kept their home interiors spotlessly clean and their consciences
curiously unsullied. Such shots might have broken the shocking tension
of tramping feet, tanks, tumbling bricks, flames, bombs and scientific
murder of thousands.
Nine million people is a lot of people: close on three times the
population of the old W.I. Federation: that was the number of civilian lives
destroyed in cold- blood when one :mall man (and his adoring nation)
struggled to impose powez-lust and a terrible racial doctrine on the world.
Of those people who were murdered, over five million were Jews.
It sounds incredible today. You may see it in motion-pictures; you
see the actual corpses shovtlled into limepits and incinerators, divested of
their clothes and even their gold tooth-fillings; tiny children and their
parents, with bodies like stick insects due to starvation, pass like a miasma
on the screen. . and always, behind barbed wire and bars, you see those
huge haunted painfilled eyes. You know it happened, and yet (even if
you experienced some of it yourself), you ask: can it have been possible?
You see in this film the faces of crime perpetrators. How respectable
some of them seem! You watch Hitler change from an undersized tramp
with an inferiority complex into a burly well-fed Dictator, You note his
unidelitgs and hear their peremptory or doting voices. It is all a vast

Goodwill Series Success,.ul
Dominica Victorious by
In the final match of the 1964
Goodwill series, Domir ica defeated
St. Vinc-nt by 85 runs before a mam-
moth crowd of over 7,000, by far
the largest crowd ever to attend a
cricket match at this venue.
Skipper Einstein Shillingford,
who is very lucky with the coin,
won the toss again, giving D-ca the
privilege of first strike. That only
227 was realized, was not so mt.ch
the faulty turf as lack of concentra-
tion on the part of the batsmen.
The wicket took an unusual amount
of turn on the first day, even before
lunch and one or two nipped dis-
concertingly off the fast men. Des-
pite the odd-, however, Irving
Shillingford played a heroic innings
of ito, more than half the sides
His innings ,was filled with all the
ingredients of calm repose and good
judgewent, tinted with spels of
venomous aggression. His concen-
tration was tremendous, and for his
side it was a magnificent effort. For

for 75 and deserved mcre wickets.

capriciousness towards St. Vincent.
Williams, who cut down on his
pace, bowled intelligently and well
and used the seam with guile and
precision. He had so far accounted
for all the 5 wickets to fall.
Gregoire & Shillingford
Save The Day
Had another wicket fallen, D-ca
could have found themselves in a
losing position. Irving Shilling-
ford, who batted with understand-
able restraint under the circumstan-
ces survived a confident appeal for a
catch at short leg, and thereafter got
into his stride, finding a perfect foil
in Gregoire. Those two swung
things around for D-ca and thanks
to their partnership and later Gre,
goire's splendid work with the tail-
endcrs, D-ca totalled 194.
