Wearing Only A Beard
U. S. citizen John Piesmont, who was deported from
Dominica in July 1963, was arrested early this month after
a raid on a Greenwich Villkge apartment by the New
York City narcotics squad. Presmont, dressed only in his
beatnik beard, was charged along with 17 associates with
indecent exposure, impairing the morals of minors and
loitering for the purpose of using narcotics.
It will be recalled that the Dominican Government
was strongly pressed by the HERALD to state the real reason
for Presmono's deportation. No offical explanation was
ever given, although many rumours circulated.

I just cannot understand modern
youth, they seem to know nothing of
honesty and dependability. You know
it is so hard when yaJ do not know
how much to believe. A friend of
mine says they have no use for people
of middle age except for what they
can get out of us!! Orcourse I know
they have their good points but their
attitude towards their elders makes it
very difficult for both ages.
How do people in Dominica work,
I mean the daily paid people? When
I see how slowly people on the road
work, I wonder how they ever find
money (theGov't:) to do even the
smallest bit of road work.

Where Rough
Play Started
Permit mr space in your
valuable columns to refute a state-
ment made by your Sports Reporter
on the match played between
Blackburns and Thunderbirds at
Windsor Park on Thursday 22nd
October, 1964.
Under his article captioned
"Exciting match ends in Fasco",
there was a deliberate attempt to
impress upon the minds of your
readers the idea that the members of
the Thunderbirds team were the
only ones engaged in rough play.
His natural bias was particularly
obvious whenhen said that "The
Birds defence resorting to rough tac-
tics which have become so custom-
ary, found themselves on the wrong
side of things, harassing Lartigue of
Blackburns unfairly". He was not
harassed unfairly, but merely paid
back in his own coin.
Any unbiased spectator who
witnessed the match can verify that
it was Lartigue's play that provoked
the incident which ensued. It was

early in the second half when the
1iirds began to enjoy the better part
I',' th game, that he found himself
angered, thereby bulldozing and
harassing the smaller Birds.
* His behaviour became more
shocking when he tried to "stamp"
an opponent who is supposed to be
his colleague.
I have con Jemned the attitude of
Thunderbirds defender, Gage, (an
unwarranted show of extremism,) as
unsprtmanlike and dangerous, be-
cause he aucopted the eye for an eye,
tooth for a tooth doctrine, but, never,
theless, it was Lartigue's and hence
Blackburns' attitude which generated
the ill-feeling.
Had the referee been more rigid,
and had he cautioned the offending
players, this sort cf think would not
have happened; but laxity prevailed,
and the Birds, by dint of their physi-
cal superiority found themselves be,
ing given the greater measure of
blame for rough play when the game
This I believe Madam Editor. is
a much fairer report of the match,
Inasmuch as two wrongs don't make

blame, but a greater measure should

burne Lestrade's article on
Education in Martinique, the
second of a series f articles
entitled "Martinique through
S. M. A. Eyes" appearing in
the Dominica Chronicle in
It is quite obvious that Mr.
S t e v e ns misunderstood
and misinterpreted Mr. Les,
trade's statements concerning
the office of the Dominica
Minister of Education as
compared with that of' his
Martinique counterpart. In
his comparison of the two
educational s y s t e s, Mr.
Lestrade made statements of
no particular reference to the
q qalificatons of any indivi-
Sual Minister of Education,
past, present or future. If
Mr. Stevens, as he does, looks
upon these statements as a
personal criticism of h i s
father, the Hon. W. S.
Stevens, present Minister of
Labour and Social Services
(and hence, of Education) in
Dominica, we would like
him to say whether he thinks
that his father has been and
will be the only Minister of
Education in Dominica.

We have been asked by Mayor Lestrade to publish the following:-
Office of the Roseau Town Council,
14th October, 1964.
Chief Minister Prevaricates

THE following constitutes Issue No.r of a series of statements of fact on
the Relationship of the Central Government and the Roseau Town
Council, an undertaking which has been triggered off by the irresponsible
and inarcurate statements made by the Chief Minister on his Party's plat-
form at the Dawbiney Market on the night of Friday the 9th October, 1964.
We believe that "THE TRUTH WILL MAKE US FREE".

I am further advised to say, that whereas the Council by necessity,
looks forward to the cooperation of Government in such aspects of Street
Maintenance as technical advice and assistance, as also the use of Road
Building Equipment and the stockpiling of gravel and sand as already
agreed to at the said discussions, the Council can in no way ascede to the
proposal whereby Government maintains any street in RoseLa at the Coun-
c:'s expense.
Hoping that the reasonableness and business-like attitude of the
Council will be accordingly appreciated and that the necessary cooperation
by Government as indicated above will not in any way be impeded".
Finally, I also quote the text of para. (e) of the said report which
further illustrates the Chief Minister's misstalements:-

Struggle for Justice
By MARTIN LUTHER KING, Jr., 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Winner
( Concnded forn last issue )
Now agape is more than aesthetical or romantic love.
Ag'pe is more than a friendship. Agape is understanding,
creative, redemptive good-will for all men. It is an over-
flowing love which seeks nothing in return. Theologians
would say that it is a love of God operating in the human
heart. When an individual rises to love on this level, be
loves every man, not because he likes him, not because his
way appeals to him, but he loves every man because God
loves him. He rises to the point of loving the person who
does the evil deed while hating the ceed that person does.
This is always a goal and it is beautiful to have a
method of struggle where it is possible to do this, for we
are coming to see now that hate is dangerous. It is as inju,
rious to the hater as it is to the bated It is a wonderful
thing to have a method of struggle where it is possible to
rise to the level of love and yet stand up with determine,
tion against the unjust and evil system. You come to the
point of hating segregation and standing up against it, with
all your might, and yt maintaining an understanding love
for the person who is misguided.
There is another poipt in non-violence and it is this:
it says that suffering may be a powerful social force, and
interestingly enough this is one of the points that violence
would bring out. The forces of war and violence will
agree with non-violence at this point. Both violence and
nonviolence ag-ee that suffering can be a' powerful social
force, but the difference is that violence says that suffering
is a powerful social force when you inflict the suffering on
anEo:her, but nonviolence says that suffringjisa aowerfuL
soci force when you al cw suffering and paiu and violence
,to be inflicted on yourself. It goes on with a conviction
that unmerited suffering is always redemptive.
And so the practitioner of nonviolence will say to
his opponent: "We will meet your cap, city to inflict
suffering, by our capacity to endure suffering. We vill
meet your physical force with soul force. Do to us what
you will, we will still lo-,' you. We cannot in all good
conscience obey your unjust laws, so throw us ik; jail and
as difficult as it is, we will go to jail and still love you.
We will love you, but be assured that we will wear you
down by our capacity to suffer and one day we will w;n
freedom for ourselves; we will so appeal to your heart and
your conscience hat we will win you in the process and
our victory will be a double victory."
This is the meaning of nonviolence in its deepest
dimensions and that is something that frustrates tne oppo-
nent. I: exposts his moral defences, it weakens his morale
and at the same: time it works on his conscience. He does,
rot knew how to handle it.
If he does not beat you, wonderful; if he does not put
you in jail, wonderful But if he does put you in jail,
you transform that cell from a dungeon of shame to a
haven of freedom and human dignity. Even if he tri.s to
kill you, you develop the inner conviction that there are
some things so precious, some things so dear, some things
so eternally true that they are worth dyirg for. And if a
man has not discovered something that he will die for, he
is not fit to live. If an individual at thirty years has not
found some great truth, some great principle, some great
ideal that he will die for, he is already dead. Tf he is chal,
lenged to take a stand but he refuses because he is afraid-
afraid that his home will be bombed, afraid that he may be
shot, afraid that he may lose his job he may live until
he is eighty, but he just as dead at thirty as he is at eighty,
and the cessation of breathing in his life is merely the bela,
ted announctmenr of an earlier death of the spirit. And so
non-violence sees this, and it sees that suffering can be a
powerful social force. There is another thing that I would
like to bring here and that is an element of optimism con^,
cerning human nature in the nonviolent philosophy.

T h Goodwill Prison
celebrated its Tenth Anniveri
sary on Oct.16 wih a function
which opened with a reli,
gious service in th' Prison
Chapel followed by a lecture
to the Prison Officers and
Prisoners by Mr. Clarke.
Later the C. M. the Hon.
E. O. LeBlanc carried out
an inspection of the Prison
The Prisoners were then
addressed by the Minister for
Labour and Social Services,
and the Probation Officer,
Mr. Wiltshire. Mr. Stevens
congratulated t h e Prison
Superintendent for the hig''
.standard of the prison and
its surroundings exhorted the,
prisoners to amend their ways
and left with them a present
of bibles to uplift their spirit.
Mr. Wiltshire also paid
high tribute to Mr. Clarke
and his staff for the very.
small percentage of recidivists
among the small number of
tody, which he attributed to
the successful methods used
by him which enabled them
to be reinstated into society
without much difficulty.
He thought that Mr.
Clarke was a very practical
exponent of the principle that
a country is judged not by
the way it takes care of its
good people but rather by tlhe
way it looks after those who
fall by the wayside.
A vote of thanks ably
moved by Mr. J. P. Cuffy, a.
Prison Officer, followed by
refreshments in Mr. Clarke's
home brought the very plea-

Thunderbirds drew nearer to win'
ning the Div I championship when
they edged out Spartans by i goal to
nil at Windsor Park on Sunday.
The lone goal came when Grge the
left winger completed a fine move
which started infield. Sparrans tried
hard for an equaliser in the closing
minutes of play but the Thunderbirds
defence would give nothing away.
Thus Thunderbirds have 12 pts.,
4 pts ahead of Blackburn their nearest
rivals. Both teams have two more
matches to play, against each other.
On Thursday D.G.S. couldn't
find the last minute thrust to equalise
and suffered defeat by 2-i at the
hands (or should it be feet) of Black-
burn. Goalscorers were Joseph and
Nesty of Blackburn, and Brinsley
Charles for D.G.S.
The D. A. S. A. has agreed to
send a team to St. Lucia in January
or thereabouts to participate in the
Quadrangular tournament to'be held
there. Thcre.will be trial matches
played during the rest of the league
