bedecked open jeep showed the
musician's bandsman-cap and belt
placed in honour on his coffin, the
handle of which was tightly gripped
by his Nurse-Fiancee, Miss Stella

until the last breath. Two floral
saxophones made of blossoms sym-

this huge concourse of mourners,
including some ioo cars, reached the

as if Roseau was empty of vitality,
no traffic stirred.
Mingling with the funeral crowds
was Commandant Slater, famous
Detective who is here to unravel the
dreadful mystery of the triple deaths,
and his aides, Mr, Slater told our
reporter on Friday that there was
nothing startling to report so far,
but the investigation is continuing.
Fire Victims Slow
To Heal
Several Carnival fire victims
are still in he Princess Magaret
Hospital and some concern is
felt at the slowness of recovery
of some of the burns. Sev-
eral victims of these "burns"
state that the their clothes were
never on fire nor even appear
scorched, yet the flesh underneath
is burned and healing very slow-
ly. The hospital staff asks all
those who have friends and re-
latives still in the wards to visit
them and encourage them aoz their
painful road back to bealth.


Mr. Speaker's Daughter Weds

The delightful bridal pair above are Mr. Ronald
Bakarat and his young wife Marie, daughter of the Hon.
and Mrs. Louis Cools-Lartigue, who attended the wed-
ding ceremony. Mr. Louis Cools-Lartigue is Speaker of
the Dominica Legislative Council. The young couple
were married last month at the Church of S S Peter
and Paul, in Jamaica; her wedding gown is of Swiss
organza and Chantilly lace, with side panels and a
chapel train attached at the waistline with a large bow.
She wore a coronet of seed pearls and carried a bouquet
of orchids. Mr. & Mrs. Bakarat spent their honeymoon
on the North Coast of Jamaica.

Something About Government -- I

From the Royal Bank of Canada's Monthly Letter (March)

THE STATE is a community of people whose member
ship requires them to live under the same code of behav-
iour. To make this possible, they choose the kind, quality
and quanity of government that best serves their n e e d s
today and gives them hope for tomorrow.
There should be no mistake about this dual function
of government: it must provide what is immediately necess-
ary and at the same time make plans designed to give every
citizen the best opportunity to realize in future the things
he believes to be most worthwhile.
We live in an age when shabby ideologies promise
short cuts. They take the undramatic realities of society
and sculpture them into images, t h en fervently stir up
followers. T he y marry selfishness and ignorance, and
breed conflict between races, creeds, individuals and coun-
Those who live under VWestern democracy must not
be complacent about their present felicity. They can re-
tain it only if they are alive to the spirit behind the facade,
as much aware of the moral depths as of the material sur-
face fcatuics of accmocracy.
This may be brushed aside by some people as being a
too idealistic view of government. But a government is
expected to have ideals -as do business, science, .education
and all the oihcr social facets of.life or it is not living up
to its responsibilities.
History is, in the main, the story of man's efforts to
attain the best he can imagine life to hold for him, and to
maintain order so that enrichment of living may proceed
generation after:generation.' It is the purpose of govern-
ment-to provide .the environment in which this advance-
jnent will be possible.
EVen i th-TCe~W- iiee io ga -goet niT-ent m u-Tsn a v
government. "The Pilgrims aboard the Mayflower formed
themselves intb "a, civil body ,politick" before their little
ship reached the shores of America. There is no evidence
within human history to support the idea that a group of
people can exist without government. For an ex,.mple of
anarchy all we need do is stand at a busy street corner when
the traffic constable has left it for a minutes. Automobiles
become tangled as drivers manoeuvre to get through a n d
their horns snarl angrily.
Canadians do not look upon the State as a s o r t of
overlord, but a creature of their own hands a servant.
The government of the state is placed in the hands of men
Sand women believed by citizens to be capable of discharg-
ing the duties of care, foresight and protection. The best
form of government, they agree, is government by g o o d
men, qualified to.carry out these obligations.
Democracy is not an e a s y system to maintain and
develop. It must. bring together under one roof two differ
ent ideas: the idea that the state should provide scope and
opportunity for individual enterprise and the idea that the
s t a t e should be a collection of public services, satisfying
people's needs by subsidies, subventions and the like.
It is not possible for a government to ru 1 e without
curtailing some individual freedoms, but it is contrary to
the canons of good.administration that it should s ee k to
compensate for restrictions by providing circuses as well as

It has been the experience of
Canada in general to have political
parties with high principles. They
have been made up of men and
'women of convici' on who seek to
explain the:r belief; in order to w'in
support. They hive not descended
to huckstering; they have not aban-
doned their honesty for the sake of
partisan expediency. Our great
political figures have looked upon
government as an art and science to
be learned, not merely an office to
be won.
In a democratic state the men
forming the government are con-
cerned with representing the citizens.
They believe in the sovereignty of
the people, universal suffrage in
which every man and woman counts
as a person, and the right of the
majority to rule. The future of
democracy, said a nineteenth century
writer, mainly depends on the will-
ingness of the omnipotent people to
be led by highly trained ancd' can-
scientious statesmen, and on the
willingness of those statesmen to
serve the people upon such terms as
democracy will accept.

The Athenian system of "di-
rect democracy" would be im-

Qies s CoPrne

"We must be willing to learn the lesson that co-operation may imply
compromise; but if it brings a world advance it is a gain for each indivi-
dual nation. There will be those who doubt their ability to rime to these
new heights, but the alternative is not possible to contemplate. We must
build faith in the heart of those who doubt, we mnst rekindle faith in our-
selves when it grovs dim, and find some kind of divine courage within us
to keep on till on earth we have peace and good will among men."
-Anna Eleanor Roosevelt

And what Adlai Stevenson said about Mrs. Roosvelt:
"She wculd rather light candles than curse the darkness, and her glow
has warmed the world."

Aims and principles
If it is to be effective, a govern.
anent must have a'ms that are spec-
fic, concrete, and definite. These
differ from country to country accord-
ing to circumstances and environ-
ment, but the ultimate criterion is
this: are the people preserved and
One essential quality in govern-
ment is integrity. The strength of
a government lies in the belief of'the
people it rules that it is inflexibly
open and truthful. There is a say-
ing in the law of equity which

might be paraphrased: "He who
comes to govern must come with
clean hands."
Ideally, once a representative is
elected by the people he becomes
part of government, not politics.
The purpose of a political party is
to bring together people who believe
alike about certain things so that
they may carry their principles into
practice. When a member is elected
to parliament it is his duty to form
his opinion after hearing all sides in
a debate, and to lend his influence
toward governing in the interests of
all the peo"'

Miss Africa-
Beauty, Brains And Business
"Miss Africa" came to Chicago recently and in her brief visit created a
very favorable impression for African womanhood with her charm, wit,
intelligence and intense desire to serve her country economically.
She is Miss Abby Ekwonna, a 24-year-old beauty from Lagos, Ni-
geria, who gained international prominence by winning the "Miss Africa"
title in competition with 15 other beauties from I5 African nations in a con-
test held in New York City to commemorate the emergence of the new
African states. She was crowned by Mrs. Catherine Basic, wife of famed
American Negro band leader Count Basie.
A former United Nations secretary, "Miss Africa" arrived in Chicago
to visit the Fuller Products Cosmetics Co., as part of a business tour of the
United States. She surveyed the fashion field, establishing contacts and
buying merchandise for a fashion salon she is establish in Lagos. "I will
be offering our young women all the things they desire in modern fashion,"
she remarked about her business venture.
"Miss Africa" is very modern herself, She was an eyeful to spectators
upon her arrival at O'Hare Airport The 5-foot 3-inch, 1I5-pound
Niverian wore a dashing Akwa gown topped by a stole made of African
kente cloth. The Akwa gown is the national costume of her country.
For Miss Ekwonna, it served to accentuate her shapely figure. She wore
black pumps, silver earrings and bracelets and her hair was done up in the
latest style. With her winsome smile, the shocolate-colored Miss Ekwonna
was the personification of grace and poise.
Her talents are not restricted to the beauty field. A fine singer. mostly
in the folk music category, she has appeared in several documentary films
on Africa. The films include, "The U. S. and the Congo", and "Ni-
geria 'nd Democracy." She also knows all the latest American and La-
tin dances.
"'vMiss Africa" comes by htr business talent naturally. Her father is
in the import-export business. Miss Ekwonna believes that economic
growth is one of the major factors in Africa's growth. She says:
"There is a strong movement among young Africans to bring the conti-
nent live. We know that it can be done through education, economics
and politics."


In clinical tests on malaria by
the U.S. National Institut es of
Health, a new drug has given
protection against the disease
nearly ten times longer than con
ventional anti-malaria drugs now
in use.
Volunteers given a single injec-
tion of the drug nearly a year ago
bave not yet shown any evidence
of malaria even though they have
been bitten by heavily infected
mosquitoes at monthly intervals,
Other volunteers not given the
drug have invariably come down
with malaria after being bitten
by the same mosquitoes.
Scientists think it is possible
that "C1501" kills the parasites
before infection can take root.
Ifso, the drug will greatly aid
the world-wide programme to
eliminate malaria. The disease.
which presents a grave problem
par'ic'ilarly to mary of the emer-
ging countries, afflicts 200 mil-
lion people and causes two mil-
lion deaths each year. Scientists
have called the results of C1501's
clinical tests "Spectacular".

Portsmouth on Tuesday. the 2nd dav

In (Germany) the State]Secretaries are the civil-serviceheads of depart-
ments, and deputies of the ministers in charge of ministries or departments.
During that notorious night when the police action against "Der
Spiegel', the newsmagazine, was commenced in Bonn and Hamburg, the
Federal Governm.nt appeared to consist not of ministers but exclusively of
State Secretaries. In the Ministry of Justice only State Secretary Walter
Strauss was fully informed about the whole matter, Minister Stammberger
had been excluded carefully from knowing anything, and whatever informa-
tion had to be passed op to the Federal Chancellor was passed on to him
through State Secretary Globke,

Ministers Lose Office
It was that very night that caused the government crisis in Bonn.
The responsible ministers, Franz-Josef Strauss and Stammberger, lost their
Office, but the State Secretaries remained in office; Walter Strauss was pro.
moted to the rank of judge at the European Court of Law in Luxembourg,
and Globke, too continues in office. In Bonn this state of affairs will often
be referred to as the "Trade Union of State Secretaries", or a kind of "Se-
cond Government". What is the power and authority of these men who,
after all, are not responsible to parliaments
According to the letter of the law State Secretaries are the leading
administrative executives of the ministers. They are to head and adminis-
ter their ministry and relieve their politically active ministers of the adminis-
trative routine work. To use a military example: they can be compared to
the chiefs of a general staff. But in the military service, too, chiefs of staff
have often been more important than the commander in-chief, and practice
has been developing along lines different from what the law had wanted.
State Secretaries have jobs more permanent than those of ministers.
Mr. Walter Strauss served as a State Secretary in the Ministry of Justice
for thirteen years, he saw six ministers come and go before he went to
Luxembourg. State Secretaries know everything about their departments
and they know every officer and official personally aq they have appointed
most of them. The ministers will sometimes hardly know their way about
the ministries and the numerous personnel in their departments.
And what is more, the State Secretaries will sit at their desks and
work in the department all the time while the ministers travel in the coun-
try, fight electoral campaigns, and represent the policy of their department.
Amost all of the State Secretaries are administrative lawyers, while the
ministers are politicians. This was meant to be so. They are to look after
the legal and administrative details, while the ministers are in charge of
determining the overall political concept. But in this more complicated
world often the expertise of the expert will win over the overall concept.
This also applies to the federal government. (German Tribune)

Laville Sets Record
It is regrettable that unlike other
West Indians, Dominicans show
little interest in Athletics: it seems
to evaporate as soon as they leave
school. One notable exception is
Benoit Laville who is presently
studying in the U.S A. On March
2, he represented Cal-Poly of San
Luis Obispo and threw the javelin
223ft. 2in. This distance is a re-
cord for the Long Beach Relays,
the previous best being i65fi. It al-
so broke the Cal-poly record of
2Ioft. Sin. set up by H. Ziraman
in 1954, and is easily a West In-
dies record. The World Record
stands at z82ft. 3in., held by J.
Lusis of the U.S.S.R. Laville is
to compete against the University of
California in Los Angeles today.

Outright Victories
It was a weekend of outright
victories in the D.A.S.A. Cricket

by 6 wickets at the Botanic Gardens,
while Combermere beat D.G.S. by

In their second innings, Comber-
mere could raise only o19. They
were shattered by the pace of Celaire

H. Williams scored 26 for Comber-
