duced bills and motions amounting to one mountain
(approval of the White Paper on Federation) and a number

It gave us much pleasure to publish
a letter from the Carib Chief last Satur-
day, urging all Caribs to j o i n a new
"literary club" which would m e e t in
Roseau. This is the first time in which
a leader of the Carib community h a s
made a public declaration encouraging
his people to expand their education. It
,is an inspiring and praiseworthy rallying-

objects of the U. N. are set out in t"h e
Chatter and c a n be briefly stated (we'
,quote from a U. N. release) as "to main-
t a i n peace in the world, to bring about
greater individual freedom and to r ai s e
the standards of living for all men."
In the General Assembly every mem-
ber nation regardless of size has an equal
vote. In the Security Council (the Exe-
cutive for maintenance of peace) e a c h
member has the power of veto. Of its
eleven members, five are permanent and
six are elected annually by the General
Assembly. The "v e t o" complicates
matters and is probably the reason behind
our correspondent's query.
Regarding the second question s u b-
mitted, Britain, France and Belgium have
"special interests" in the Belgian Congo
and have not therefore been asked to sup-
ply troops. The U. N. now consists of
iio member countries of which m o r e
t h a n 50 have supplied military or civil
personnel to assist in the Katanga opera-
tion. A majority of the nations h a v e
contributed financially to s u p p o r t the
phased "Plan of National Reconciliation"

Thant, and agreed to in principle b u t
not implemented by Moise Tshombe.
Question 3: the writer compares Sov-
iet "suppression" in Hungary with U. N.

in Hungary was unilateral; we see no

Even if the club had been named a
literacy club rather than a literary club,
that would not have diminished its impoit-
ance. The Caribs, like other enquiring
minds in the confines of Dominica, a r e
mentally on the alert now, and we hope
that their club, once established, wi 1 1
flourish and bring a new stimulus to the
interesting times in which we live. More-
over, we admire the rousing tone of the

Question 4? The Fourth (Trusteeship)
passed to the General Assembly several
resolutions relating to the education and
protection 1 of Africans in Angola a n d
self determination for the territory. The
principles have b e e n accepted by the
General Assembly and w ill be further
debated at the next session.
Question 5: the difference is in t h e
point of view of the enquirer. We re-
mind readers of the old saying "It all
depends upon whose ox is gored." The
three examples given would be regarded,
according to the viewpoint, as e i t h e r
"preventative aggression," "unwarranted
aggression" or "an attempt to contain and
r e s ol v e the conflict." One national
leader's opinion is printed on p. 3-
"Nkrumah and Tshombe."

Question 6 asks "who am I to recog-
nise as the 'United Nations' ". U. N.
is the majority opinion of the World As
sembly of Nations: like any other demo-
cratic assembly agreement is not neces-
sarily unanimous.

Our correspondent and others will
have gathered by now that we support the
principle of a United Nations Assembly
taking decisions on world security. Like
all man-made institutions such an organ
i s a t i o n has certain imperfections, but
surely half a loaf is better than no bread.

When the harbour was built at Das in 1957, it
was planned as a temporary facility, sin e it was not

production is under way it is necessary to make the

there was a willingness and desire to
federate and on the economic side
he said that the British Government
was still willing to give financial aid
to those of the colonies needing help,
in accordance with the White Paper
statement. Mr. Sandys was satisfied
that in time the proposed federation
would become economically viable.
After detailed explanations the
Secretary of State left behind a
greater atmosphere ofconfidence than
had hitherto existed. (CP)
Government Asks Interim
According to a rekase from the
Dominica Government Information
Service, in the short interview that
the Secretary of State had with the
Government delegation prior to his
departure for Barbados, the Chief
Minister submitted the case for interim
financial assistance for roads, agricul
tural credit and schools; this will be
needed to bridge the gap between
the last C. D. & W. grant (now
exhausted) and the date when the
next grant will become available.
Roads, it was pointed out, were
very necessary to encourage, the
large numbers of Dominicans return-
ing from the U. K. to go on the
land. The point was well taken
by the S. o. S. but he felt that
people in these parts depended on
Government to wait upon them
rather than helping themselves:
moreover, he pointed out, the U. K.
Government was spending over
2M on Commonwealth couptris,
of all which money had to be earned
on the export market.

In giving their views on the pro-
posed federation, the Government
was of the opinion that this should
be formed on the basis of the White
Paper decisions. Mr. Sandys was
given a memorandum on the detailed
requirements for interim financial
assistance and promised to give them
sympathetic consideration after study.

Responsibility Undermined

In the concluding section Mr. Batten describes in detail his training
course at the University of London Institute of Education. He and his
wife have worked out a method of discussion which they believe
to represent the only valid relationship of teachers and student. The class
determines its own problems, selecting examples from their experience, and
work through them under the Batten's discreet guidance. The teacher is no
-authority, but simply a fellow-student more experienced in his approach to
problems. If a full-time course from October to June at London Univer-
sity for twenty students seems too expensive a training to provide a general
pattern, Mr. Batten demonstrates an a postscript how he applied the same
techniques very successfully in three five-day refresher courses in British
Yet there still seem to be a fundamental flaw in the conception of com-
munity development, which no training can overcome The Development
Officer is a servant of government in its executive, not its representative func-
tion. But his role is to stimulate local democracy, to lead communities to
concerted action for their own benefit. This, surely, should not be the funct-
ion of a public servant, but of political leadership.
The essence of democracy is that people elect leaders who will guide
and encourage them, not merely maintain in power the majority faction.
Community development suited paternal colonial rule, when the initiative
for progress- such as it was- depended upon an authoritarian bureau.
cracy. But in an independent nation, it implies distrust of representative
government. The distrust may be understandable, but by displacing one of
the fundamental responsibilities of democratic leaders on to public servants,
it undermines the growth of that responsibility.
How can a community development officer be truly the servant of his
community when it neither appoints him nor pays him? How can he be
an authoritative advocate of progress without usurping the role of elected
leaders? A civil servant can only campaign for a policy which has already
been in principle agreed by the institutions of a democracy, which alone
possesses the right and duty to make policy, Democratic institutions can,
of course, delegate their authority, but they should not expect any public
servant to work to so vague a brief as community development implies. A
community development officer can only interpret the needs of a locality,

It's silence when your words would hurt
It's Patience when your neighour's curt
It's deafness when the scandal flows
It's thoughtfulness for other's woes
it's promptness when stern duty calls
It's courage when misfortune falls.

It seemed as if a few unofficial
boycotts were in operation. Only
one Government Minister was pre-
snt- --Hon. L. C. Didier; the Jay-
cees were enjoying a rtwal party of
their own, and due to certain mix-
ups some invitations were not dc-
li ered. To compensate for these
deficiencies, the dance music by The
Stars was excellent and the foxtrots,
waltzes etc. were danced with charm
and zest. A Paul Jones caused a
cheerful mix-up, His Honour and
Mrs. Lovelace demonstrated the Gay
Gordons which was promptly learnt
by many dancers, Mr. Chambers
and Yola Shtllingford put on a
neat, effective but restrained jive and
htughes Shillingford and Mrs, Grif-
fin shared the honours with Mr.
Chambers for the Twist.
Among those present was newly-
decorated O.B.E. Charlie Winston
and his wire Mina, who lookedra-
diant in a long classical ball-dress
with floating turquoise overdrapes.
Long and short evening dresses were
in about equal proportion, and a 11
but a few of the escorts were in din-
ner jackets. A handsome sum was
collected for the deprived youth of
