Mrs. Harold Wilson
By P. S. A.
Yes, Harold Wilson has a wife, even if you may never
have heard of her before. She looks like her strong and
simple name: M a r y Wilson. She is the m her of two
s o n s, one a student at Oxford University (Balliol), the
other a schoolboy of 14.
Let us have a glimpse of the woman who m a y one
day be the wife of a Prime Minister and hostess at No. to
Downing S t r e t. She lives with her family quietly in
Hampstead Garden Suburb; she was the daughter of a
devout Congregational Minister f r o m Lancashire. The
whole family attends the Free Church in their neighbour-
hood; Mrs. Wilson helps to distribute the church magazine.
People who know her well say she is strong and serene,
capable of meeting whatever demands life or high office may
make upon her.
Tell me what you read, and I will tell you what you
are. .. What books does Mary Wilson read: She reads
the Brontes and Jane Austen, in particular; and she is also
a poet whose woiks will shortly appear in a volume to be
sold for charity.
When Mary Wilson was a little girl, she m o v e d
around the various counties of England with her preacher
father quite a lot. She met Harold Wilson when t h e y
were both young: he was just going up to Oxford. After
three weeks of acquaintance he decided that he was going
io marry her; they did not, however, get married until after
the last "great War" started, "I thought I was marrying
an Oxford Don," says Mrs. Wilson. But by the time she
was 31 she was a Cabinet Minister's wife.
She does not.care to be a public fi g u r e, preferring
home life; but that is not due to lack of interest in politics.
She is interested in ideas rather than in day-to day combats.
"I just don't like people shouting at each o t h e r," is her

BERNARD A. SEVERIN
The sad news of the death of Mr. Bernard A. Severin
was announced on Saturday last week. Mr. Severin died
at the P. M. Hospital in his 73rd year.
"Bob" Scverin, as he was known to his many friends,
was for many years a dispenser (pharmacist) at both the
Roseau and Portsmouth Hospitals and also at Grandbay.
He was a good churchman, a keen footballer and cricketer
(he represented the island at soccer) and Scoutmaster of the
Portsmouth Scout Troop.
The fune al took place at St. A'phonsus Church and

"A sense of urgency and impend-

part of the smaller countries of the
Caribbean were reflected in the dis-
cussioni and conclusions recorded
by the participants at the end of the
Caribbean Ori:,nization's 8 day

Echoing this sentiment, Dr. C.

of the final session, stated "A unity

mic development of the countries of

he call for a voluntary chain of na-

Dr. Lastra declared that if the
momentum achieved at the Seminar
was not translated into action by
1964, there was a risk of loss of
faith in the future by the people and
governments of the smaller countries.
The need were repeatedly stressed,

A Message Of Sympathy
To The Citizens Of Roseau On The
Occasion Of The Calamitous Incid-
ent Of Carnival Monday
My dear Citizens;-On behalf of the Roscau Town
Council, and on behalf of my wife and myself, I wish to.
extend to the numerous relatives and friends of all those
who suffered fr o m the calamitous incident of Carnival
Monday, the deepest sympathy and Christian condolence
of the City Fathers.
Doubtless, you all know only too well, that s u ch
incidents are entirely be y o n d our control; but we feel
bound in both sentiment and duty, to apologise for such a
shocking national disaster which has taken place in ourl
city at a time when it was opened to the peaceful revelling
of our citizens in what is truly, our most pompous and
demonstrative National Festival.
We cannot help mourning deeply, the loss of young
talented Eddie Martin and the serious illness of Eric
Shillingford and George James, three young men, outstand-
ing in their respective fields, and whom we all in t is com-
munity need so very much. And it is with the deepest
regret that I must mention here, that it will be a long time
yet when our society will be replenished with the contribu-
tions that these men were capable of and disposed to.
This message would not be complete if I did not i-
clude our deep thanks to Mr. John Presnund, an Amen
can Citizen of Campbell who, in his humane and heroic
:fforc to save the lives of our then endangered young man,
suffered serious burns himself and has been hospitalized.

Choosing The Queen
by Collins O'Neill
Dazzling flashlights of cameras, sky-rockets right; down to the little
hand bombs marked the choosing of the Dominica 1963 Carnival Queen
on Carnival Friday nigh: at the gaily lit Carnival City.
Hundreds of people turned up despite the threatening weather. A
packed and appreciative audience saw some of Dominica's loveliest ladies
in their sparkling, dazzling beauty on the stage of the well-adorned Carni-
val City. When MC Couhhard took up his post and the last year's
queen was presented, the crowd roared. But whether the roaring had at
the time pointed to a seatless throne or the beauty of the first queen, one
could hardly ascertain, though it is my opinion that since a queen is a
queen whether outgoing or not special provision for her appearance should
be made, thus ridding her of the discourtesy cf standing, back against the
upstage corner, for any lengthy period. Nevertheless, to be a queen one
has to have courage, and perhaps it might have been a test.
The parade backed by part ofthe G. J. orchestra, was unusually
done, in a two-way style. First the contestants richly dressed in straight
carnival fashion, paraded the stage dancing to the roadworthy carnival hits.
This was of course a marvellous means of introducing the characters,
Then theie was the Whitchurch's Symphonettes Steel Orchestra, (winner
of the steelband competition) pouring in their masterful renditions while the
contesting queens who had returned to the robing-rooms prepared themselves
in queenly beauty.
Whilst ihe queens changed, the audience were entertained by calyp-
onians-the "Spark", winner ofthe Calypso Competition singing "Eileen"
and "Back to Africa" and giving some very excellent leg movements,
which had the audience rolling. Supporting him with their mouth-piece
music were calypsonians, The Saint, The Snatcher, the Idol and the March
MC Coulthard returned and the beauties were each called out in the
following ordLr: (r) Miss Coca-Cola (Barbara Bully) (2) Miss Agfa Films
(3) Miss Megan Wilson Store (4) Miss Astaphan Shopping Centre (5)
Miss N-E District (6) Miss Salybia (7) Miss Home Industries (8) Miss
Salisbury (9) Miss Ju-c Beverages (Avonell Shillingford) who was adjudged
the winner ofthe contest. From the time this contestant reached the stage
she moved gracefully, well-timed withthe music, and of course holding from
beginning to end a golden smile- -the only contestant possessing such queenly
quahties, although Miss Coca Cola was deservedly popular and became

right in stating that we have

Dear Girls and Boys,
We heard that preparations are being made to reach
the moon. To many of us it seems an impossible tasl. W wonder how
that can ever happen.
Sixty years ago, when men thought of flying in machines in the air
like birds, people who lived then thought it just as impossible.
Today the sight of an aeroplane in flight cease to be a wonder, To-
morrow a voyage to the moon will also ceases to be a wonder:-
Before 1903, men had flown in balloons and airships but noone had
succeeded in travelling through space in a machine that was heavier than air.
Two American brothers--- Wilbur and Orville Wright through their
vision skill, courage and perseverance made this dream came true on 7th
December 1903, when they made their historic flight at Kitty Hawk in
Early in life the boys showed a love for machines. They were very
patient, careful, and painstaking and never took a step unless they were
sure the theory was quite correct. This care was of the greatest value when
they came to construct their machine.
That December morning in 1903 was very cold and a strong icy
wind was blowing. The brothers drew it from its shed and fixed it on
a wooden rail made in such a way so as to gie the machine its first push

Wilbur then took his turn- he succeeded in remaining in the air for
59 seconds and flew.8i2 feet. Then a gust of wind oveirurned the
machine and ended tha day's vcr .
But iman had flown-- no matter how brief the flight. For the first
time in history, a power driven, heavier than-air-machine had travelled
through space, The first time in history that a machine carrying a man
had raised itself into the air by its own power, in free flight, had sailed for-
ward on a level course without reduction of speed and landed safely with-
out' being wiccked.
The world knew nothing of what was going on. Only five people
in the neighbourlhood watched history being made.
The Wnghts then set about building stronger and more powerful ma-
chines. They were very modest and retiring and never boasted of their
great achievement. They were solely concern about piefccting their machine.
In 1908, Orville remained in the States to satisfy the IU.S. Govt. with
his tests while Wilbur went to France to do the same. By th,,t time their
machine could fly for two hours at a time.
From then, governments all over the world awoke to thie value of the
acroplane. The Wrights were fertd everywhere they went.
Then they gave up flying to devote their attention to the construction
of machines and the training of men,
In 1912, Wilbur took ill and died bur Orville lived to see their
work grow to such proportions that he and his brother never dreamed of.
When you look up and see the vapour trail of a jet plane overhead,
remember it was the patients and pains taking work of two brothers that
laid the foundation of this mighty achievement. If and when we reach the
moon they gave it the first push.
