From Our Correspondent
Anti-Colonialists Arrested
FEVERISH anxiety and fear spread from Fort-de-France
through the whole ofMartinique during the carnival
season. An alleged plot to blow up Government House,
the Courts of Justice, the City Hall and Police h e a d-
quarters was discovered nearly three weeks ago, and eight
young men, members of a subversive organisation, w e r e
arrested and have been imprisoned ever since. Their mili-
tantly nationalist organisation is known as the Anti-Colon-
ialist Youth Organisation of Martinique and is said to be
essentially revolutionary. The group were first heard of in
December last year when leaflets and posters were distri-
buted throughout the island.

Contagious Grief
It was a time of contagious sor-
row. Many schoolchildren crowded
weeping around the dead man's
home beforehand in an attempt to
say goodbye, but nobody was per-
mitted to gaze on the victim's face.
The coffin was drawn on a flower-
decked hoodless jeep, and "Knights
of the Road" motor cycles. Eric's
bakery vans and Vauxhall cars

St. Lucia has stepped into the healthy
limelight of approbation this week on
two points, both concerning y o u t h.
Following the past urgings of a now de-
funct Federal Ministry, and the recom-
mendations of the Monica Green report,
they have set up a committee to promote
proper legislation on the care and treat-
ment of children and young p e o p e.
This is a splendid move, and we con-
gratulate t he children of St. Lucia on

such a combination of state, welfare and
Youth Trust activity on their behalf.
At the same time, St. Lucia was
favoured this week with a visit fr o m
President Kennedy's sister and her hus-
b a n d, Director Shriver of the U. S.
Peace Corps.
The two events are interrelated: they
signify a neighboring Territory's con-
cern for its young citizens and interna-
tional interest in the same. In the final

session of the late W. I. Federal House of Representatives
these words were spoken: "Certain territories have shown a
zeal on behalf of the children, which zeal must be highly
regarded. ."
St. Lucia is now highly regarded for exploring every
avenue to help her young, and we hope that others wi 1 1
soon follow such an example. It is later than we think.

Brockway's Bill

Perhaps the most persistent legislator in the British House of Com-
mons is Feuner Brockway M. P., who recently tried for the ninth time to
introduce a bill against racial discrimination and incitement. Ivor Richards,
barrister and Britisl. Labour Candidate, describes this bill. (Courtesy of

Racial Discrimination

By Section II of the bill it would
be enacted that:
No person shall be entitled to
exercise discrimination in pursuance
of any of the following occupations:

(a) Keeper of an hotel,
(b) Keeper of a common lodging
(c) Keeper of a restaurant, cafe or
other place kept or used for the
sale of food or drink to the
Public, including premises
licensed for the sale of intoxicat-
ing liquors.
(d) Keeper of any place kept or used
for public dancing, singing,
music or any public entertain-
ment of the Jlike kind.
By Section III it is proposed that
no lease or agreement for a lease shall
be refused on the ground of racial
From the legal point of view it
must immediately be conceded that
the above provisions would be
extreme difficult to enforce. So
long as English law recognizes the
-sanctity of contractual relations and
the complete freedom of contact it
will be very difficult to prove, for
example, that a landlord who refuses
to let a room to a coloured person
does so because he is discriminating
on grounds of rac q But even though
they might be dirticult to enforce,
Sections I, II, and [II of the bill do
provide a valuable statement of aims
and intention.


The teeth of the bill however are
in Sections IV and V which read
as follows:-
IV. Any person who incites public-
ly by speech or by writing or by
illustration contempt or hatred
of any person or persons because
of their colour, race, or religion
shall be guilty of an offence
under this Act.
V. Any person who prints, pu.
blishes, distributes or circulates
any written matter or illustration
inciting contempt or hatred of
any person or persons because
of their colour, race or religion
shall be guilty of an offence un-
der this Act.
These two Sections deal with
racial incitement either by speech or
by writing and here the b1ll goes
further than any other proposed
Incitement is the crucial problem
which has faced us recently. We
have been forced to reconsider the
existing methods of dealing with
incitement, isi particular the provi-
sions of the Public Order Act 1936.
In August, 1962, Mr, Iremonger,
Conservative Member of Parliament
sought to amend Section V of this
Act. The Act in its original form
Any person who in any public
place or at any public meeting
uses threatening, abusive or in-
sulting words or behaviour
with intent to provoke a breach
of the peace or whereby a breach
of the peace is likely to be

eign or to bring into hatred or con-
tempt the Sovereign or the govern-
ment, the laws or constitution of the
realm'. It is difficult to imagine
anything wider or more vague.

Effect Of The Common

Market On The W. I.

By J. M. G. (Tom) Adams
From The Beacon, Barbados,

RITAIN is the world's greatest importer of food. No
o t h e r country presents so voracious an appetite for
agricultural produce, and this simple fact lies at the basis of
much of the argument thus ended with the French veto on
the B r i t i s h application to join the European Common

Commonwealth countries to increase
their preferential tariffs in gratitude
that the Common Market is no longer
a threat.
Finally, an interesting point to
look for will be the effects on British
migration policy. Tliere seems little
doubt that one of the reasons behind
the Cormonweilth Immierants Act
was the swing away from the Com-
monwealth and towards the Contin-
ent. Now that there will be no
question of European labour being
allowed to move freely in and out of

who knew him so well, than the unpredictable death of our very dear

all those who came in contact with him day in day out. His willing
mind, helpfulness, friendliness and generous feeling can be matched by
exceptionally few young men of his age.
Eric attended the Dominica Grammar School where he obtained
the Cambridge School Certificae before proceeding to England in 1955
to study automobile engineering. At school Eric was always the life of
any form that he passed through. He was exceptionally popular with
his schoolmates.
I recall very much the activities of the school group to which both
Eric and myself belonged. These were the days of very youthful under-
takings such as hiking, mountain climbing and social entertainments.
His main extra curriculum activity however remained in the field of
mechanics and motor cycling. Mechanics was always his greatest interest
and hobby during his school days. This he pursued till his end. Eric
graduated as a qualified automobile engineer holding the A. M. I. M. I.,
and assumed the management of Vauxhall Motor Garage in 1956-57.
From then on he continued to be the man who always supported a
good cause and was well prepared to render service at all times when
called upon to do so. This nature of his brought him into a movement
which he joined from the very stait. He was a foundation member of
the Dominica Junior Chamber of Commerce, and in 1962 was elected a
member of the Executive Council of the Chamber and further appointed
Commission Chairman of Community Service Commission. To the
attr part of that year, Eric organized three projects, two completed sue
cestflly, and one still operating. The Road Safety Week and Xmas
Treat 1962 were both demonstrations of his alilhty to organize succ ss-

Eric was not dear only to this moment, but was 'rose' of his family.
He was well-thought of and well-spoken of at all times by his whole
family circle, and we can understand what a sad and bitter loss they have
experienced. May they find comfort in the strength of love. I remem-

This simple and moving obituary was written for the Herald by
Eddie's young brother.
Eddie was born on the 7th of October 1944, right here in Roseau
His first experience of fire came only a year afterwards, when his home
was destroyed. He began his education at the age of five at Miss Eileen
Burton's school, and a few years later entered the Roseau Boys School.
The Wesley High School opposite his home was his next Alma Mater,
rom which school he entered the Saint Mary's Academy, remaining in
this last school for eight years, and bringing his secondary education to a
peak by sitting the Higher School Examination in November-December
of 1962.
As regards music, Eddie's brief but brilliant career has very humble
eginnins--he learned his first chord (g) from his father on a small
guitar--later named aptly "the Pioneer". From that first chord Eddie
started the climb which was regrettably cut short as he began to show the
makings of a real "maestro."
The most amazing thing about Eddie and his guitar is that about
950 of what he knew and played was self-taught. This was the re-
ward of hours of daily practice which grew longer as time went on.
Jim Garraway was Eddie's constant companion, both in and out of
music, and it was because of this friendship that Dominica knew the
"Jewels" which grew in size to the "Swinging Teens", unt:l recently
when the "Swinging Stars" was born and helped bring music in Dom-
inica to new heights,
With the dea.h of Eddie, however, Dominica has been robbed of
he brightest of its "Jewels" and the star of the "Swinging Stars"-two
great musical groups.

Nearly everyone "in the know" is

an excuse. The decision to get rid
of you was made before theC M

They did not want you back here

wanted you poor and powerless.
Now you may be poor but you are

The Recurring Letter
28th February, 1962.
Dear Secretary,
It has come to my knowledge through the kindness of Mr.
J. M,. D. Bousquet, M. P,, that the Labour Party of Dominica sent protest
cables or,messages to the Governor General and to the Prime Minister, re-
girding the disengagement allowances for Federal Alnister and severance
pay for Federal h, Ps. It is my ~,ew thar as President ol'the Party I was
entitled to receive an immediate copy of these protests. Moreover :it has
u^ d tjl 'A-ir 5I ihvli^IF4c'wL ep'.i ^ aJl_.;xcc4Jm .n cermaiCr -nLsue~ mt i-
of the Labour Party, and this decision wis doubtless taken at such a meet-
ing. Keeping the President of a Party ignorant of such action in which
she is directly concerned is wrong and discourteous To a certain degree
this remark applies equally in respect of Federal Member of Pirliament Mr.
The Federal House of Representatives democratically voted that these
Payments should be made after intensive debate in which there was only one
dissenting voice-that of Ken Hill, M. P. who spoke' against the measure.
. . . .. Even Florence Daysh, who is not in favour of extravag-
ance, agreed that it would be wrong for Ministers and M. Ps to have pos-
sibly to beg their bread or be thrown on the world defenceless.
Instead of agitating against your own colleagues for getting a break,
the Labour Party of Dominica should be glad that the money will be spent
in Dominica and should be considering what advice they might give to
their colleagues as to the best ways of helping the people. The breaking
up of a nation is a unique event and cannot con tiittc a precedent. It is
different than a bye-election, than an end of term election, or dismissal for
any cause. Everybody is agreed to that. There is not a single member of
the Dominica Labour Party Executive who has not benefited through my
assistance politically or financially in the past, and do not forget that the
Party was founded on my little money with the help of the then Trade
Union President E. C. Loblack.
I suffered many privations for this Party and it would be rankly un-
grateful if my comrades who have attained power and salaries through
Party organisation should behave in any mean or jealous manner. It has
always been a socialist principle that a politician should be properly paid
for work properly done, and labour politicians were the first to suggest pen-
sions for Ministers' families if a Minister died while in office. They also
support pensions for Prime Min.sters. Of course the tearing apart of a
nation is something that no other country in the world has had to undergo.
I am placing these words on record because I am disturbed that all
kind of publicity has been given to this unusual stand of a Socialist Party
while the President of the Party has been kept in ignorance of this type of
censure. The matter will be discussed in executive on my next return to
Domin ca.
Yours faithfully,
