2AGE TWO DOMINICA HERALD SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 1963
Tribute ToMother Mary Alicia
At the request of readers 1h2jo have received copies from
Trinidad, we reproduce below with due acknowledgment
an unsigned news story which appeared in the Catholic
Neiis of Port of Spain dated January 5. It was entitled
"The Valiant Woman of Dominica-A Nun's Story".
We regret that we cannot print the accompanying photo-
THE people of Dominica call her the saviour of their
island and pray that she will never die, for she offers them a
new life. Her name is Mother Mary Alicia, and she is a
missionary canoness of St. Augustine.
Mother Alicia is founder of the credit union move-
ment in Dominica. Ten years ago she formed her first
community credit union in Roseau, the capital of this West
Indies island, because "the financial needs of the families
were so great and the people knew so little about saving."
Today there are over 20 credit unions with 6,000 mem-
beis who have saved 8350,000. In past years members
have doubled their savings, and a Dominica Credit Union
League has been formed.
But more important, most of the credit union's money
is out in loans to members, improving their lives. People
who formerly slept on a pile of rags, are now enjoying beds
for the first time.
A tailor who couldn't afford to own his own sewing
machine and had been renting one for the past five years at
$z5 a month, now has his own. He took out a credit union
loan of $240 to buy it, and he paid it off in three months.
Also, the farmer can now buy a mule to help work his fields.
Many Dominican fishermen don't own their own equip-
ment and must rent nets from the storekeeper for $50 and a
boat for $25 in addition to buying their fishing gear and
bait. They might earn $9o on a' three-day fishing trip,
depending on their catch, but after paying all their expenses,
they have little left to live on.
The Credit Union gives them the n e c e s s a r y
capital so that they can become owners, instead of borrowers,
for the first time. Credit union loans are also used to buy
teeth and eye glasses, to repair and build homes and to pay
the tuition to send the children to Dominica's one high
Agriculture is one of the primary means of livelihood
there. However, most of the land is divided into large es-
tates which the people work for 75 cents to one dollar a day.
The banana industry has only recently been developed,
and it has brought some money for the people.
Mother Alicia travels from village to village setting up
small groups and then forming them into community credit
unions. To answer the increasing demands for credit
unions, an assistant, Mother Elizabeth, was assigned last
year. Also Mother Mary Adele works with school child-
ren's credit unions. Children in one primary school already
have saved $2,000
MOTHER ALICIA covers the 305 square miles of
Dominica by jeep, car, or rowboat, lent to her by friends.
She recalls several excursions through dangerous waters
where one man rowed while the other scooped out water
from the leaky bottom.
In each village she lectures to the study clubs and
shows films and other materials. This continues for six to
eight months until a study club is ready to form a credit
union. Now some of the early credit union members are
experienced enough to go with her as voluntary assistants in
this extension programme.
But there still is not eriough help or funds to answer
the demand for credit unions, according to Mother Alicia.
The people cannot get loans from banks because they do
not have sufficient security. Besides, the bank is in Roseau,

Priority For Gommier
One of the essentials required in
order to make use of our gommier
is the organisation of carrying of the
logs to the mill and that the mill be
suitably sited for shipping. This
matter was included in the terms of
reference of the Canadian survey
team when investigating the forest
potential of Dominica,
The survey team also made re-
commendation as to the siting of a
veneering mill at the mouth of the
Layou River, and all that is now
needed to bring a new and profitable
industry to Dominica is the interest of
some big firm to come down and util-
ise the raw material which grows here
in such abundance. To that end
(among others) the Min'ster of Trade
and Production, Hon. N.A. N.
Ducreay, is proceeding to the U.S
and Canada in the near future to try
and interest major plywood and ve-
neer firms in our potential.

To Get Fertiliser
The Fertiliser Credit Sheme for
the Dominica Banana Growers As-
sociation has at last been approved.
More than nine months ago the Bana-
na Association requested Government
to ask the permission of the Secretaiy
of State to use 200ooooo from the
U.K. Price Ass stance Stabilisation
Fund for the operauon of a Fertiliser
Credit Scheme, On June 30, 1962
the Association again referred t o
Government and were told that no
action had been taken but that a
telegraphic request would be made.
The approval of the Secretary of
State was first announced by the
Minister of Trade and Production
at the meeting on Monday, February
4, 1963, ofthe newly formed Agri-
The urgent need to supply
large quantities of fertii s e r
increase productive i t y has long
been recognized, but the average
smallholder has not sufficient funds to
purchase the amounts of high fotash
manures required; this scheme will
allow such persons to obtain their
supplies on credit and pay when the
crop comes in.
Some time may elapse before the
scheme can be put into operation
since the necessary field staff, clerks
and accounting procedure : must first
be organised. Applications for fertili-
z:rs on credit wdll be accepted in the
meanwhile and dealt with in strict

and for many people this means several days travel. If they
go to a private lendet for a 85 loan, they must pay back
$Io (an added $5 in interest).
"They don't borrow mnch, they just live in misery,"
she says. Mother Alicia hopes that soon every village will
have its own credit union.
SHE BELIEVES the credit union is uplifting the
people socially, as well as economically. By putting their
money in their own credit union. They will also help
their own community, she explains.
Mother Alicia also started the credit union movement
in Antigua and Montserratt, two other West Indies islands,
and they too are enjoying a good growth.
A native of Belgium, Mother Alicia entered the con-
vent there in 1941 and received a degree as a social welfare
worker. Dominica, where she went in 1950, was her first
SHE FIRST LEARNED about credit unions from-
Rev. John Sullivan, S. J., managing director of the Jamaica
Credit Union League. He sent her the address of the Cre-
dit Union National Association (CUNA) which furnished
her with educational material.
In 1953 she received a United Nations Technical
Assistance Fellowship to study credit unions and co-ops in
the U. S., and she visited CUNA in Madison, Wis., U.
S. A. for the first time.
Mother Alicia was also instrumental in getting started
in the English archdiocese of Westminster a special Family
Day for the island of Dominica, observed for the past three
years on the Ember Friday in Lent. Dunng those days Ca-
tholics were urged voluntarily to fast and give up luxuries and
donate the money saved to the Dominica Fund.

ALL GOVERNMENTS have a certain
amount of unfinished business con-
stantly on hand. This is understandable.
But there are some matters which have
received publicity and even attention, in
the immediate past, and of which nothing
further has been heard. We would place
at the top of the list Dominica's possible
membership in the Caribbean Organisa-
tion. Only this week two Senior Civil
Servants have returned from a Seminar
on Planning Techniques and Methods,
and declared themselves impressed by this
rewarding exercise. Yet we still do not
know for sure whether the Government
of Dominica intends to subscribe and
become a member of this vitally impor-
tant body. CARIBO cuts across language
and national barriers; it is a great meeting-
point for regional thinkers and politicians.
The useful projects in which it is involved
are manifold; they include agriculture,
tourism and culture. Government might
take a hint frm the interest shown by
local people in Spanish and French clubs.
The intligent population of this island
wishes to reach out twarids its friendly
neighbours, and CARIBO' s the best
means of so doing. Some' of the small ,
West Indian islands ate still hesitating over
joining the Caribbean Organisation.
Barbados is being similarly criticized in,
the Press for hesitancy. We hope the
Dominica Government will come to a
beneficial decision soon.
Next, let us consider the Peace Corps.
Since the visit of Dr. Comitas and his
wife last year, when offers -were made of
Peace Corps participation in helpful
schemes, nothing positive has been heard,
save a hint that Government's advisers
"are not too keen" on the Peace Corps,
one of President Kennedy's favourite pro-
jects. Well, the Latin-American coun-
tries are keen, and our indifference will be
their gain. Labour Governments are
usually criticised by their Oppositions for

The Heavy Eater
This pathetic tale warns of the
perils ofgluttony, Several days ago
when Charles Steinmetz of Florida
weighed 670 pounds, he said: "I
haven't mnch time left. I crave food
like an alcoholic craves alcohol."
The 38-year-old Steinmetz died
on February 3 in a hospital. Doctors
said he weighed 740 pounds at
death- gain of 70 pounds in two
weeks. It took 16 men to load him
into the rear of a delivery truck for
the tripto othe hospital.
Announcement of the exact cause
of death awaited the outcome of an
Steinmetz, who was 6 feet 2 inch-
es tall and 76 inches around, said
that each pound he gained brought
him nearer to death, but he could
not stop. "Other people smoke or
drink when they worry. I find my-
self a chicken."
At the age of 8, Steinmetz was
underweight. He started gaining
rapidly in his late teens. He worked
16 years as a typist, retiring on a
medical pension in 1959.
He said doctors told him there
was nothing originally wrong. "1
have no health problems, no diabetic
trouble-just overeating" he said.
He added that health authorities
told him he should be in a hospital
but said he couldn't afford it ant

My life is but a weaving
Between my God and me;
I may not chose the colors,
He knows what they should be;
For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
While I can see it only
On this, the under side.
Sometimes He weaveth sorrow,
Which seemeth strange to me;
But I will trust His judgment,
And work on faithfully;
'Tis He who fills the shuttle,
He knows just what is best;
So I shall weave in earnest
And leave with Him the res..
At last, when life is ended,
With Him I shall abide,
Then I may view the pattern
Upon the upper side;
Then I shall know the reason
Why pain with joy entwined
Was woven in the fabric
Of life that God designed.

The New Attitude
By Our Canadian Correspondent
While visiting the lovely island of Barbados, I feel impelled to send
you news of Canada's, nev attitude towards coloured people in general and
particularly towards coloured migrants. You will have read that our Par-
bamentary assistant to the Immigration Ministry (Home Affairs and Immi-
gration) has declared recently his department's "abandonment of the pattern
r nu an rxlicri -, rAirriminarinn". This is uera.onnrA nra r F.1 -
years). The first domestic worker
he interviewed (a Jamaican) replied
to his query: "It's comfortable,
but lonely." This efficient woman,
who got a good salary, awakes at
7 a. rn. and assumes the role of
mother, maid and friend. The
children take their meals with her in
the kitchen; she herself has a two-
room apartment on the top floor, to
which she retires after work. It has
television, radio and sewing-machine;
but she is alone. She meets other
West Indians at Church (where the
Pastor is a Negro), and the Church
hall on Thursday "afternoons off"
is a substitute for club and home:
it is like Federation there. At
dances, W. I. women greatly out-
number men of similar origin, and
one migrant male student remarked
"Women are like mangoes here."
Vacation time is a source of trial to
such students. They complain that
others find it easier to get holiday
work. Some of these students look
down on the domestics, who do not,
however, always remain in servants'
Of course the girls try hard to
bring in their husbands or filncis,
and some of them succeed-after a
struggle with authority. In Canada,
it is the West Indian girls who
import husbands-while the opposite
used to be the case in Britain!
Nevertheless, the fact is that things
are improving along this race frontier
in Canada; if not quickly enough
for the direct migrants of taday, cer-
tainly for the youngsters of the next
generation.) And may I say that,
during my visit to Barbados I was
criticised for my open racial attitude
at the Yacht Club and at the
Marine Hotel. Narrow-mindedness

As you know, I am concerned in
Ontario with Public Welfare. An
excellent article appeared in the
Toronto Daily Star lately which
exemplifies the new warm-hearted
outlook. It concerns adoptions of
coloured children by several Toronto
families. One family adopted an
Indian girl and a Negro boy; they
were previously childless, and now
not only the parents but the neigh-
bourhood feel that this integration-
in-practice is a wonderful success
The Star says: "The integra-
tion movement isn't confined to
Toronto-it's sweeping across Onta-
rio and Quebec-a massive break-
through the age-old wall of racial
douLt, distrust and discrimination."
Professor Oliver of McGil, Uni-
versity and his wife Joan have
adopted a beautiful little coloured girl
to bring up with their three small
boys and one girl.
On the other hand, famous
West Indian Novelist George
Lamming paints the other side of
the picture, to which we must face
up. Writing in MacLeans Ma-
gazine, he tells under the heading
"The West Indians: Our Loneliest
Immigrants" how he went in search
of 38 Barbadian domestic servants
who entered Canada, to find out
how they were doing. (There are
1,320 such W. I. domestics scattered
over the country during the past six

On November 21 Jacques Vas-
seur, 42, was arrested at his mother's
home in a suburb of Lille, France
and was taken into custody by the

he had been hiding out there since the
end of the World War II rather than
face charges of collaboration with

The U.S. Peace Corps recently an-
nounced that if its programme is ap-
proved by the Congress, it plans to
send more of its volunteers to Latin
America than to any other area of
the needs of the Caribbean with its twin pillars of Discipline
and Religion. Never before in the history of these territories
has there been more pressing need for dedicated Christian
men-a splendid challenge for the Boys Brigade, a challenge
which gives the heart urgency and passion for the spiritual
welfare of our young boys.
B. B. Week enables you to play a part in serving the
Youth of your territory. Last year the response was magni-
ficent, but we are not resting on our laurels, we have fresh

also parents and friends to give generously and help the
Brigade to further its work of advancing Christ's Kingdom

A Biographical Appraisal
By R. E.A.
Harold Wilsun's father was a works chemist ii. Huddersfield, York-
shire; the boy attended grammar school at Wirral and got a scholarship
to Jesus College, Oxford. There he took a first in politics, philosophy
and economics, won several prizes, and became a Don o f Economics.
The magic word economics has played its part in his brilliant career:
he was Director of Economics an d Statistics in the Ministry of Fuel
and Power at age 26. Nobody can catch him out o n this subject in
At age 28, in 1945. Harold Wilson entered Parliament. Two
years later he became President of the Board of Trade and kept the post
until 1951. In that year a sharp disagreLment arose between Mr. Attlee's
Government and himself, over the rearmament programme and also the
imposition of Health Service charges. Mr. Wilson sided with his great
friend Aneurin Bevan, and both were out. Three years later, when Bevan
resigned from the Shadow Cabinet, Mr. Wilson replaced him. He
made a statement at the time: "What matters is the strength and unity
of the party."
When he was voted in again and remained the youngest mem-
ber of this Shadow Cabinet, (in 1956), he came top of the poll. But at
the Party's A. G. Me in 1960 he challenged Gaitskell for the party leader-
ship and was defeated, only obtaining one-third of the votes. He then
fell from first to ninth place in the Shadow Cabinet elections, but shot
up to the top in 1961. Last year he stood against Mr. Erown for
the deputy leadership, and lost by 133 votes to o103
A resilient man, capable of accepting both defeat or triumph
with good grace, Wilson's main disagreement with Gaitskell was over
nuclear weapons policy, but once he gave his loyal word of support, he
kept it, saying, "The basis of unity is trust." His attitude has consis-
tently been that policy matters should be settled first, then decisive ac-
tion taken. Wilson has always been in favour of criticising his own
Party for its shortcomings. In 196o at a Party Conference he declared,
"It is a terrible reflection on us that in 1945 four out of five scientists
voted Labour, whereas I do not think last October one out of five
voted Labour." To those who advocated using a n economic crisis
in Britain for the defeat of the Tories, he said: "that is not the main
case for socialism: we do not want to be swept to power on misery
and mass unemployment."
Harold Wilson, now 46, is a strenuous worker with Cabinet ex-
perience, adept at international negotiations- He is regarded, as "'Left
of Centre" but not as one who acs rashly. A great ad serious
future now lies before hie.

1~A&E TEN DOMINICA HERALD SATURDAY, FEBRUARY s6, 1963
By far the most flamboyant per-
sonality in the sporting world at
present is the twenty-on: year old
negro heavyweight boxer Cassius Clay
of the U.S.A. He is ranked No. 3
behind Champion Sonny Liston
and Floyd Patterson by Ring ma-
gaLine. He has developed the ha-
bit of predicting which round he
will knock out his opponents, and
so far he has been correct on every
occasion. His most recent victim
is the un-ranked Challie Powell
whom he knocked out in the 3rd
round. He also put Archie Moore
to rest in the 4th round some tine
At a luncheon to celebrate his
21st birthday recently he said, "I
have ten months to break Floyd
Patterson's record of being the
youngest heavyweight champion in
boxing history, and the only thing
that is holding me back is champion
Sonny Liston. He's afraid of me."
Champion For 10 Years
Asked about his future in boxing,
Cassius announced modestly: "I fig-
ure I'll be champ for about ten
years, then I'll let my brother Rud-
olph Valentino Clay take over-just
like the Ktnnedy's down in Wash-
ington." Cassius is also noted for
his poetic babbling. On the out-
come of a meeting between him and
Liston, he recited,
"Liston, you think you are great,
But you'll certainly fall in eight"
To the Gamblers he warns,
-uon t oe your mouey lagazic
Or you'll never have'a lucky day".
Meanwhile Sonny Liston and Floyd
Patterson will meet for their return
bout at Miami on April4th. If
Listout wins that one (and all the
"Scribes" of boxing think he will),
the way is wide open for a Clay
vs. Liston contest.
I sincerely hope that thrs con-
test will take place in the not too
distant future. 1 h a v e a funny
feeling that Liston will] "falliin
Blackburn Make It A Draw
An intelligent knock of 54 by
Ronald Osborne, a scintilating
partnership between Fergus and
Larocque, and fine seam bowling
by John Joseph, were the highlights
of last weekend's Ist Division match
between Combermere and Blackburn
at the Gardens Blackburn batted
first and found themselves facing
John Joseph at his best. He made
the ball move both in the air and
off the pitch. Wickets fell stead
ily until Osborne came in. Play-
ing every ball on its merit, he ev-
entually got on top of the bowling
and provided the only bright spark
of the innings. A most improved
batsman is young Osborne. His 54
included 3 sixes and 6 fours, Jos-
eph got 5 for 58 in Blackburn's inn-
ings of 156. Earlier on, J. Mellow
was hit on the shin by a hard re-
turn drive from ClemJohn. He
took no further part in the match.
H. Elwin and J. Lawrence gave
Combermere a good start to their Ist
innings. They had put on 5z in
even time before Nesty brought off a
good slip citch to get rid of Lawrence
for 21. At the ciose on Saturday,
Combermere were 6r for I.
Heavy showers on Sunday morning
delayed the start. Elwin was dis-
missed enrly for 28, but Fergus
(Daddei) and Larocque took charge
and flogged the bowling all over the
place. Feigus was at his best. His
late cutting and leg glancing were
most elegant while Larocque. not
yet in his best form, showed flashes
After lunch there was a collapse,
and from 183 for 3, the innings
closed at 227. The wickets were
shared by Dyer, Nesty G. Robinson
and E. Shillingford each getting two.
Blackburn were arain in trouble
in the 2nd innings and at one time
defeat stared them in the face, Tne
score then was 80 for 8. John
Joseph was again the menace. His
performance was even better than
the Ist innings, finishing with 6 for
45. It was left to Nesty (zi) and
Clem McIntyre (24 not out) to see
their team safely to a draw.
John Joseph's bowling in this
match was the best of his career.
He got II for 123.
The scores again: Blackburn
156, R. Osborne 54; J. Joseph 5
for 58: and, 125 for 9 declared, C.
John 25; J. Joseph 6 for 45. Com-
bermere228, H. Fergus 85, C.
Larocque 43, H. Elwin 28.
Vulcans Out-Play Marines
SAt first rain'threatened the one
day match between Vulcans and
Marines scheduled to begin at n1.
oo a. m. on Sunday last at Benja-
min's Park, Portsmouth. However
the rain abated and at 12.20 p. m.
Vulcanstoo the field. The first
ball of the match, which came from
S. Toussaint uprooted .he leg stump
of Colborn Panthier. With the
early loss of the opening batsmen,
the others could not measure up to
the bowling of S. Toussaint and
O. Edwards, who conc:dcd only 8
runs in taking 4 wickets. W. Sal-
way (dropped at o off Toussaint)
and H. Magloire played discreetly
to see their side reach 21 for 5.
The side fell for 28, with Salway
and Magloire each scoring 8. Tous-
saint took 3 for 8; Edwards 4 for
9 and M. Xavier 2 for o1. When
Vulcans came in to bat, runs were
still difficult to score and at one
time were 7 for 5 under pressure
from the hostile Steven Paul and
Hawkins Rabess. Tonssaint, who
came in at the fall of the 3rd wic-
ket, dug himself in, while his part-
ners were falling at regular intervals.
Valentine changed the prospect by
hitting Paul hard and high to the
overhead boundary for 4. Vulcans
were all out for 42; of which O.
Edwards scored 8 and S. Toussaint
carried his bat with 14. For Ma.
rines, S. Paul took 6 for 18 and H.
Rabess 2 for 0.
Marines, in their second innings
could not stand up to the pace of
M. Xavier (2 for 9) and the spin
bowling of R. Panthier and W.
Dupuis (who took 2 for 4 and z
for 7 respectively) and could only
score 24 for 7.
