EDUCATION DEPARTMENT,
DOMINICA.
25th September, 1951.
Arrangements for sending Colonial
Students for Higher Education to
United Kingdom for the 1952-53
Session.

The pressure upon Universities and
Colleges in the United Kingdomn snows
few signs of relaxing ard in the ['aculties
of Medicine, Dentistry, Science and
Engineering the difficulty of obtaining
places is still acute. Colonial candidates
seeking admission must give evidence of
a high standard of potential ability as
matriculation requirements are consider.
ably stiffer under the new regulations.
2. Government Scholars and private
students must show that they have
attempted to take advantage of local
University facilities for higher education
as now exist, before submitting applica-
tions for admission to Universities in the
United Kingdom,
3. Students proceeding to Universities,
particularly Oxford and Cambridge. are
reminded that they have to incur certain
initial expenses on the purchase of books
and household equipment for their rooms,
and are advised to provide themselves
with a small sum of money to cover such
contingencies which they may otherwise
have difficulty in meeting out of the initial
instalment of their allowance.
4. It is most undesirable that would-be
candidates for admission should go to the
United Kingdom unannounced and
unsponsored in the hope of obtaining
admission to Universities and Colleges.
Tutorial Colleges and Polytechnics, as
well as Universities, are overburdened
with long waiting lists of non-priority
candidates and it is almost impossible to
gain admission to such institutions with.
out due notice in the proper form. Stu-
dents are therefore, strongly dissuaded
from going to the United Kingdom for
higher education until they are assured









OFFICIAL GAZETTE, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 5, 1951. 231


that a place has been made available for
therm.
5. Students are advised against going
to the United Kingdom for pre-matricula-
tion studies which could be followed
locally.
6. Every effort will be made to secure
as many vacancies as possible for well-
qualified and properly sponsored colonial
students provided that there is no insis-
tence upon particular University.
7. All applications should reach the
Education Office not later than the 15th
of November, 1951 giving the following
particulars.
(1) Full name
12) Date of birth (with documentary
evidence)
(3) Nationality
(4) Religion
(5) Name and address of Parent or
Guardian
(6) Full details of previous education
record, including certificates, dip-


lomas or degrees obtained and
public examinations taken and

credits, etc., obtained in each
subject
(7) Full details of proposed course of
study, including qualifications
desired and subjects to be taken.
(8) Place of education where admission
is desired should NOT appear on
the application form. Candidates
will apply for Form B on which
this will appear.
(9) At least two testimonials as to
character (one being from the
candidates Headmaster or Head.
mistress).
(10) Two photographs.
(11) Certificate of Medical fitness
8. It will not be possible to recommend
students for which adequate financial pro.
vision is not'assured.

(Chairman),
The Honourable E.L. ST. BERNARD, Ag.Crown Attorney,
,, W. H. SWEETING, Financial Secretary,
,, C. A. H. DUPIGNY,

The Honourable G. AUSTIN WINSTON,
,, T. M. BERTRAND,
S C. J. L. DUPIGNY,

Confirmation of Minutes.
The minutes of the meeting held on the 25th July, 1951, were
read and confirmed.
(The Honourable H.D. Shillingford came in and took his seat).
Trafalgar Road.
Mr. C. A. H. Dupigny referred to the steepness of certain
parts on the Trafalgar road and asked His Honour whether he
would be good enough to arrange for members of Finance Com-
mittee to visit the road.
(Mr. C.J.L Dupigny came in and took his seat.)
Mr. Aird agreed that the road was steep in parts, but was of
the opinion that the important thing was to get the road finished
and then settle out the differences.
(Honourable T.M. Bertrand came in and took his seat).
Oils and Fats Conference.
His Honour informed members that due to considerable pres
sure from the other islands, especially Trinidad, for an increase"
in the price of copra, a meeting was to be convened in Barbados
at which the Colony would be represented by Messrs. H. D. Shil-
lingford and J.B. Charles.
Mr. J. B. Charles, on invitation from His Honour, joined the
meeting.







His Honour then read a circular minute from the Financial and
Economic Adviser, Windward Islands, setting out the main ques-
tions which were likely to arise at the Conference.
The matter was discussed at length and it was realized that it
was not possible to brief the representatives with definite instruc-
tions, but that any decisions taken would have to be subject to
ratification by Government.
The Committee was very anxious, however, over the effect
which any increase in the price of copra would have on the local
consumer.
Roseau Hospital,
The Committee approved of the submission of an application
for a grant of 31,506 from Colonial Development and Welfare
funds to provide for alterations and improvements to the Roseau
Hospital.
His Honour explained that the amount provided in the Sketch
Plan for the extension of the hospital was 22,000. An application
for the full amount of 31,506 would be put forward, but it might
be found necessary to reserve expenditure temporarily on the new
nurses' home.
revenue from Public Telephone Calls.
His Honour read a minute from the Director of Works stat-
ing the amounts collected from Public calls at Telephone Ex-
changes during January-April, 1951.
Adjournment.
The Committee then adjourned, sine die.
