Three Things Which Divide Mankind
Firmly and gently taking away the initiative from global dip.
lamats and rulers, Pope Paul issued a Christma: message on Tues,
day. We publish below the verbatim BBC report:-
POPE PAUL, in hi; Christmas message to the world,
appealed to the rulers of the nations to find a way to
promote the process of disarmament. 'We would like to
see', he sa d 'a genero"ls amount of investigation of how
miikary expenditure could by stages be diverted to human,
tarian ends. Hunger and misery, sickness and ignorance,
still cry out for remedy.' He expressed amazement at the
building up of stockpiles of
ipoerful a r, d destructive .CH R IS
weapons at enormous cost in
money and manpower, a
process which results iry
mutual fear bedig made th
treacherous and. inhuman
basis of world peace.
The Pbpe went on toast obstacles
in the way of human brotherhood.
-'UO t,. he "le '- "' --- .. ..
divides peoples and raises barriers f
conflicting ideologies. Another is
racialism, which separates the differ-
ent branches of the human family,
resulting in pride, mimust and op-
'pression. 'There is also', he aided,
'the barrier of class, still a veiy real
source of division in human society,
and man should search for a more
humane pattern ofsocial' 1ving'.
Pope Paul said the Church must
publicly express her sorrow when a
people's right to worship is impeded
or forbidden. It will go on proclaim-
ing justice and religious liberty and
permitting respect for whatever is true
and good in every religion and in
every human opinion. ....

eight months in care of a grannie.
Remember she tnust have had

and kind and wished to see her
family all well-cared for, so she took
a lot of trouble. During my eirly
childhood I was not a healthy child
and she had a lot of worry with me,

WE publish in this Christmas issue
many messages of greeting from
organizations and persons to their friends
and to the community at large. Since
Christmas is not the time for politics, we
compliment those who have refrained, on
this special occasion commemorating the
Birth of Christ, from using their messages
as vehicles for propaganda or promotion.
In Britain, the politicians send indivi,
dual greetings to their constituents, but
leave it to the Queen to address the nation
and the Commonwealth. We shall be
interested to read all the Christmas mes/
sages put out by Regional Ministers: will
any ofthem direct their greetings to the
silnty waiting potential citizens of a new
Fedation, or just to their "own people"
Leafing through old Christmas cards,
one might imagine that the versifiers had
entered a contest for the banality prize.
Far better than some rhyming jingle are
golden quotations from the New Testa-
ment. The solution, of course, for those
who strive after originality is to write their
own greetings messages, within a discip,
lined maximum of words.
Christmas however, is net a specially
disciplined time of year -- particularly not
for children and even banal greetings
are lovable if the signature attached is a
So up go the decorated trees, and little
flags of cards covered with unknown holly
and ne-wrexperienced snow are pegged up
lke Christmas laundry above the Holy
family and the Crib, even in a tropical
island. They are souvenirs and signals.
They are visible symbols, like the Star
which appeared over Bethlehem some two
thousand years ago.

S From The Minister Of Trade & Produetion
As Christmas is drawing nigh, I wish to extend to
you my sincere wishes for a Hdppy Chritmas and a Prosperous New
Year. You have undoubtedly noticed the great economic strides the i
island has made in the direction of increased banana production which
/may well r3a"h 4,000,000 stems this year. }
I The year 1963 was a very sad year for our island because of (
the severe devastation done to the banana industry and other crops
I by Hurricane Edith, but your efforts have been redoubled and having
been assisted by Government you hVve ben able to bring about a
better economic era than existed before.

Peace On Earth Goodwill To Men1
SBy S. J. LEWIS
When one thinks ofthe rolling years which have reverberated with the
Message of the Augels, "Peace on Earth Goodwi.l to Men," and seems
to see it's non-fulfilu.ent by the Christian World, one is persuaded to
attribute the cause to SELFISHNESS which, like a cancer, afflicts the
The Nations are still warring against one another, human are
divided, Kith and Kin are at varance and the Glorious Message sent
from heaven to earth is n,t heeded.
How apt the words of the hymn:
"But with the woes of sin and srife
The world has suffered long;
Beneath the angels strain have rAlled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring,
O hush the noise, ye men of strife
And hear the angels sing"
Then and only then, shall:
Peace over all the earth
Its ancient splendours fling.

woods into the garden with her and
another girl during hurricane season,
right where we were standing a few
yards away a thunderbolt fell just
behind our backs; and we were
really afraid so we started walking as
fastas possible to get out of that dan-
gerous place. Grannic comforted us.
After that I was no longer with
her and the other children she had at
the same time. I thought she would
hove peace and a bit of freedom,
but alas! it was not so. She still
had more children to look aft:r,
whose mother had gone to England.
She dearly loved them.
In Dominica nowadays parents
disappear and their children are left
w.th grannies. When these children
grow up they have stronger liking
for )the grannies than for their
mothers, and I don't blame them
because she is the one who looked
after them when their parents left
The paint is that a lady like my
grannie had several sons and daugh-
ters to her own, and after they were
grown up, she should have been free
from children worries, butthenwas
the time Fhe had them! All her sons'
and daughters' children were as
though they were her own children.
They couldn't do without her home.
I must admit that grannies can be
troublesome at times. Old people
are said to be so, but some are worse
than others! But thanks are due to the
grannies of this island because with-
out them some of us would never
Grannies are not tobe looked
upon as old troublesome ladies.
They are to be loved and cherished
because they love and cherish us.
There ar: certainly times when I felt
that my grannie was a trial. I
would sometimes say "Oh! old
ladies, what a bore they are" but
deeo down in my heart I know she
loved and cared for me, and Iin
return did likewise and up to this
very day it is the same. So I hope
are all the other grannies and grand-
children in similar circumstances.
So this Christmas my Grannie
won't have any cooking and clean
ing to do, and she will enjoy being
a spec;.l gLest, and this time it will
be my turn to look after her.
