DRESIDENT Kennedy's pre-election promise: "We must
S wipe out all traces of discrimination and prejudice
against Negroes at home... we cannot be the champion of
democracy abroad unless we practice it at home" is being
firmly implemented by the U. S. Federal Government.
Latest forthright statement on the subject comes from
Vice-President Lyndon Johnson, Southern Democrat and
Protestant, who risked future support from Southern white
voters in an all-oL t attack this week on the segregationists
and "states fighters" who wou!d defy the rule of the Feder-
al Government. His brave words are timed to influence
the enactment by House and Senate of an extension law for
the C i v i Rights Commission, now being discussed in
sub-committee. This Commission is the spearhead of all
Federal action in matters of racial equality.

Kenyatta Kenya's first P. M.
KANU Wins Eiections
Led by Prime Minister Jomo Kenyatta, Kenya's New
National Assembly met in Nairobi informally on Thursday
for the first time, after the pre-independence election, com-
pleted last week. Today the new Constitution officially
comes into being with full internal self government for the
strange mixture of tribalism and modern politics which is
present-dav Kenya.

On Thursday Kenyatta, after being asked to form a government by
Governor Macdonald, appealed to all races to "build together in unity" and
forget past racial hatred. Jomo's Party, the Kenya African National Un-
ion (KANU), has a majority of over 20 seats in the Assembly but of only
one seat in the Senate, after an election marred by violence (an attempt by
African People's Party supporters to ambush Kenyatta was abortive, since
Jomo was abssnt from the scheduled trip).
Independence Next Year
Leader of the Opposition will be Ronald Ngala President of KADU
(Kenya African Democratic Union a more tribally conscious party
which favours strong regional groupings as against a powerful central
government). There is likely to be a fierce legislative battle against KANU s
determination to change the constitution in order to concentrate power at
the centre, since they consider the present regional groupings expensive
duplication of administrative effort. KANU expects to lead Kenya into
Independence next year to become a Republic within the Commonwealth.

Miss Kramer And Mr. Dunn

(condensed and quoted from "Toronto Globe" Magazine
of 30,3.63)
(Concluded from last week)

Sankey also stated he believed the following statement by Miss Kramer
"I felt it I didn't sign, Mr. Dunn would take $5,ooo. Mr. Dunn said
he would gave me ,8,ooo if 1 signed a r-z,ooo settlement and all my
bills would be paid. Bills paid by myself were not expressly mentioned,
but 1 understood they would be included".
Commenting on Miss Kramer's refusal to sign the document sanction-
ing payment of her solicitor's free, Sankey said: "Considering Mr. Dunn,
QC's slurs on her lack of education, it is to her credit that Miss Kramer had
the strenita of mind to stand up to him and to refuse to sign."
The upshot of the taxation proceedings was that Dunn had his bill of
cost slashed to $s,o6o. He was ordered to repay to Miss Kramer the balance
of the settlement, less certain other disbursements, In all, she was to receive
The next move of consequence came from the Law Society. On
Dec. I4f 1962, Norman M. Dunn ceased to exist as a barrister and solicitor
struck from the rolls and disbarred for unprofessional conduct in the
hanlling ontrust funds.
A ftw weeks agc., the nmpty handed Miss Kramer was notified by her
solicitor that the Law Socicty had made her a grant of $6,000 froti the
soc.ity's compensation fund. Thy gives her a grosi rotal of S9,633. (At
one sta";r b: ,spute with Dunn, funds amounting to $3,683 became
wrongfully, that accept,... ..... jeopardize her case. JnJrLor Dunn
placed the money in his trust account pending over-all settlement.)
A slow-speaking, 'rather' inarticulate woman, Katherine Kramer looks
with sore hshlniy on the world around her. She is lonely and embittered,
with no close friends.
S Facing her is a hernia operation and extensive dental work. She
feels no bitterness toward the motorist who ran her down. But her lips
tighten when Norman Dunn's name is mentioned. The final chapter in
the story may well be a suit for professional negligence against the absent
"It is with great regret that I have had so strongly to criticize members
of my profession," wrote Sankey on the final page uf his judgment. "I
could see no other way to deal with the case. I could well have said
stronger things."

The Poor Man And His Dog

Translation by ilss Marian Peters
A poor man. lonely and destitute, who possessed nothing in the world
but a spaniel, sole companion of his miserable state, was addressed with
th(se words by someone; "What are you doing with this dog- You who
do not possess even the mere necessaries of life? It would be better to get
rid ofit." At these words, the poor and destitute man breathed a deep
sigh and said he, "If I no longer have this dog with me, who in the
world do you thirk will give me their love?"

The Meaning Of Philosophy

Be rzey Gives Da w biney Talk

By Herald Literary Club Reporter.

"Philosophy concerns itself with
such matters as the nature of the
Universe the existence of God, the
purpose of life and whether such
things as beauty and ugliness, right
and wrong are principles which
exist independently outside ourselves
or whether they are mere names with
which we seek to dignify our human
preferences and aversions." stated
Dawb.ney Literary Club Treasurer
J.A Barzey speaking on "The
Meaning and Purpose of Philoso-
phy," the first topic of the Club's
Tetn's Theme: A look at Philoso-
phy and Religion.
He painted out that all thinking
persons can be classified according
to their views in answer to such
questions, as Idealist. Naturalists,
Hedon.sts or Paragmatists. He
quoted Aristotle as saying whether
we wish to philosophize or not, we
must philosophize to point out the
inevitability of Philosophy.
"Philosophy is the only field of
human enquiry which did not limit
itself and subject matter and is in-
terested in anything simply because it
exists. Philosophy means and in-

cludes fine fields of study and divi-
sion viz. Metaphysics, Logic, Aes-
thetics, Ethics and Politics which
deals with the study of ideal social
organization and not as is so ofien
supposed the art and science of cap-
turing and keeping office!"
Broadly he said Philosophy is
divided into two main great thought
currents or schools Idealism and
Naturalism. The former is a Philo-
sophical system which holds the
view of the world in which mind,
thought or spirit is the fundamental
reality; it is the system in which
Religion has fonnd its closest Philo-
sophical affiliate. The latter has the
metaphysical view that the universe
is self sufficient without supernatural,
causes or control and is capable of
explanation in purely natural terms.
Naturalism argues that we gain no.
thing talking of a Higher Law,
Divine Justice, Heaven in the Al-
mighty, and the like.
Concluding he said Philosophy
is a difficult subject because most
Philosophers are unintelligible to us,
because they write in very abstract
terms: however philosophy has a
special value because it helps us to

They say a country (or an island) hasn't really won prosperity until
they have a pile of old junked cars and trucks. Really poor places never throw
away anything, much less iron steel and scrap. But Dominica has finally emer
ged and now has its growing heap of rusted and bent vehicles. We are to
be congratulated that we are now arriving at the world's level of a mound
of obsolete transport. Things do wear out, finally, and must be discarded.
But we only quarrel with the site of such a dump-heap . right along the
very scenic and beautiful coast road between Fond Cole and Rockaway.
This is the route most of our tourists take; in fact, one must pass the grave-
yard of worn-out wrecks going to and coming from the airport.
Couldn't we find a deep ravine somewhere else to throw our old vehi-
cles? Must we make an eyesore of the seashore? It seems a pity Public
Works and whoever else is marring the landscape couldn't be told to remove
these pieces of old motors and lorries now, while they are st 11 able to do so
In a few months or years the entangled mess will be costly to clean up but
now it would be comra actively easy to wrap a chain around them and carry
them off to a secluded spot Or perhaps a hurricane later on this year will
drag the twisted mess out into the water where it will be virtually impossible
to ever remove them again.
While on the subject of civic pride, we chanced to talk to a represent
tative of a large fire insurance company the other day He told us Roseau is
a firetrap! Now this may not be news to some but this chap definitely
doesn't want any customers in Roseau as he fears a costly conflagration is
coming at any t me. Piles of dry rubbish alongside of and in back of many
of Roseau's wooden houses just invite trouble and constitute a grave fire
hazard He told us that fire prevention laws in most towns prohibit these
piles of old boards, boxes, broken buildings, etc. Especially, he says
around shops that stock iflarnmable liquids such as kerosene, paint and
cooking cil.
And yet it is just a matter of civic pride if not one of safety itself to
clean up the town There'are many benefits to cleanliness such as tl-c cutting
down ofdisease, eliminating a hiding and breeding place for rates, the thrift of
a lower insurance rate, the increased value of real estate- to name only a
few. But sometimes people do not respond to these altruistic reasons and
legal means must be resorted to. All that fuss last December about the
C,D.C. wires so close to a certain galvanized roof as to a menace to life
and property: remove them at once, or go to Court! But leave the pile of
rotting boar is and old boxes slay!
There is much comment lately on linking Dominica with the outside
world wnh better Cable & Wireless setup. Our Miister in chargeof
L moinfianicalons, lisie~-gat~l.-day session in Barbados here the modern
communications of a world going at a faster pace were discussed. But how
can our Minisrer think of spending money on a better overseas service when
at home we still must use "smoke signals" to communicate with most
places- n the island. Have you, ever tried to telephone Roseau from the
airport. . or vice versa? Have you ever tried to talk with anyone in
Marigot or Calibishte? We spent a large sum of money on a good airfield
and terminal building and we sank about $1oo,ooo into a sub-treasury,
police department office in Marigot but we defy anyone to telephone either
of those places from Roseau. Dcesn't it make more sense to spend the
time and money on a decent communications set-up around our island
than to improve the service to distant places?
We wonder what must transpire in the progress of a country that
shrinks the number of holidays? We are told that so far this yeac Domin-
icans have enjoyed not less than fifteen official holidays. .... and the year is
not even half over. America has eigLt for the entire year. Canada has
nine. France twelve. Brazil on the other hand has forty-two (the birthday
of most of its Presidents are legal holidays). But a land staggering under
great poverty, ignorance and illiteracy can afford 42 non-work days! 4
Might anyone suggest that Brazil give up half of those holidays and thereby
increase its productively by three solid-weeks of work . ,perhaps there
wouldn't be so much "terrible hardsh p, starvation, etc." How can the
working world bear much sympathy for the poor people of the world when
they, the so called poor, have one fete or holiday after anotl er? At the
United Nations meeting on Economic Development last month the delegate
from Mexico stated that his country has sent the number of holidays from
thirty (in 1950) to 81 in 1960 and now to 14. Most of the remaining
holidays are religious, he said, and there is a strong effort on the part of the
Church to shift these dates so that they will always fall on a Sunday! And
have you seen the Mexican standard of living rise? In the last five years
alone they have electrified all but 1o% of the homes, have swel ed school
attendance from 432,000 to 2,8o00.oo. ,.. five years!

It is not implied that by merely eliminating holidays the economy ofa
country will rise, However, it is a curious fact that the psychological effect
of removing holiday from the calendar can inspire a population to greater
efforts of self-improvement. It is the shift from play to serious work that
accomplishes the uplift,

Hardworking members of the Dominica Chamber of Commerce be-
lieve that when a holiday falls on a Friday, the shops and stores should re-
main open all day Thursday As competition gets more aggressive the
shop-owner will feel the Thursday-afternoon loss of business more keenly.
His fixed expenses like insurance, refrigeration, rent, etc. do not "take a
half.day Thursday." Can Dominica imagine the loss to the island if
Geest Industries decide to stop work, throughout the world, at one o'clock
on Thursday: The same half-holiday every week, is costing Dominica a
higher standard of living. So they say.

Dear Pat,--You have
been repeatedly contempt-
u o us y ignored i n
your writings which reveal
that the hand is that of Esau
whi e the phraseology is
that of Isaac (not Jacob).
Your attack on two De-
partments in which you
allege that there is ineffici-
ency belies the statements of
your colleagues who boast
of the activity done in these
two Departments.
B e for e you attempt to
criticise individuals why not
o btai n a true statement
which would allow you to
make comparisons o ve r a
period of years. But you
must admit that you do not
consult the Heads concern-
ed, hence your information
is one-sided and biased.
Consider the following
statements and then d e n y
them openly. Do no tbring up
fresh material until you have
accepted this challenge:-
I. A certain Head is sup-
posed to prevent a very
important person from
getting the job he now
holds. This exalted
personage has borne a
S.._erudi' all r.'i "ears 'rin-
now th i nk s he can
avenge his disappoint-
/ ment.
2. A responsible person
who wants to claim
glory for all that is done
undermines the confi-
dence reposed in
3. Several attempts, includ-
ing blatant lies, have
been made against a
certain Head, but they
have not succeeded in
dismissing the victim.
4. The efficiency of a cer-
tain Head is acknow- i
ledged by persons who
are not bloodthirsty.
Evidence is available.
5. There is the relentless
persecution of a certain
Hea d, and this is
known more widely
than you may imagine.
5. A certain leader makes
much noise to distract
the attention of some
persons from his un-
worthy life.
7. Those who are with a
certain Head outnum-
ber those who are
8. Conditions are so intol-
arable in a certain
Ministry that no decent
person can work there,
no matter how effici-
ent he be.

Now Pat, efficiency does not
mean gullibility to the point where
an individual abandons ruth and
the highest opinion. Expediency
must not be mistaken for righteous-
ness. No one must expect an
individual to sell his soul just for
"Fear not them which kill the
body, but are not able to kill the
soul; but rather fear Him who is able
to destroy both soul and body in
heh' .
When Nebuchadnezzar set up
his image and called on the three
Hebrews to worship or face the
fiery furnace, they replied, "Our
God is able to deliver us out of
thine hand, but, if not, we will
not bow down and worship the
golden image that thou hast set
What you call inefficiency is a
battle between righteousness and
evil, love and hatred, peace and
fear, revenge and forgiveness. You
had better analyse the situation
You said, "Righteousness exalteth
a nation, but sin is a reproach to
any people". Well quoted, but
th:s applies to each individual who
makes up the nation.
When some of us look around
our homes and see undeniable

evidence of uncontrolled passions,
this should be an eternal reproach to
us urging us to cry ''Woe is me, for
I am undone".
The voice of the people is not
al/ ways the voice of God; only the
voice of righteous people may be
described as the voice of God.
Preach well, or your words will not
be accep-ed.

Yours truly,

ON Tuesday evening we heard a broad-
cast appeal by the Senior Medical
O ffi c e r for public subscription to an
anti-tuberculosis fund, in which he thank-
ed an named friend for a gift of 5oo.
At the beginning of May an announce-
ment was made of the start of an anti-
tuberculosis campaign "to eliminate the
dread disease from Dominica" and asking
for the full co-operation of the public.
These praiseworthy efforts only scratch
the surface of the problem. The tubercle
bacilli skin tests will give a rough esti-
mate of the endemic. proportion of the
disease among children in other words
the scale of the problem (for comparison
we give the morbidity rates for all forms
of tuberculosis in 1961 in Venezuela:
208.2 per 100,000, 8,658 cases; and in
Mexico: 32.7 per oo0,00o and 11,803
c as e s). What we are here concerned
a b ou t is co-nneration by the Govern-
ment not the public.
,Firsly let us take a look at the 1963
Estimates, Head I5, Item 31 "B. C. G.
Campaign $Nil". B. C. G. is the
only known effective vaccine to give any
immunity. Next, it is now nearly a year
since the completion of the T. B. ward
at the Princess Margaret Hospital and
what is it used fore
But in our view the most depressing
fact is that, almost simultaneously with
the announcement of the anti T.B. cam-
paign, it became known that Govern-

m e n t had "suspended" the Integrated
Health Programme of the WHO for
which UNICEF had already allocated
the funds. Tuberculosis is not a dis-
ease like chicken-pox it is a "social
disease," that is to say it is most preva-
lent under conditions of overcrowding
and malnutrition. An effective a n t i-
tuberculosis campaign is largely one of
Public Health Education. All the faci-
lities for Health Education, all the re-
quirements for campaigns against T. B.,
malaria, yaws or any other disease come
automatically with the films, projectors,
duplicators, broadcast tapes, drugs, experts
and goodwill which the suspended In-
tegrated Health Programme offered to
Dominica. The Dominican programme
was the envy of the other islands and
nearly all of the Windward and Leeward
Islands are now trying to obtain similar

given full facts on why this chance is.
being neglected; and we are surprised that
the Opposition neither asked a single
question on the WHOUNICEF offer,
nor drew attention to the lack of provis-
ion in the budget for an anti-T. B.
It is right that the S.M.O. should ask
Dominicans for their contributions, but a
shame that Government appears to spurn
the massive WHO offer.


The HERALD welcomes a recent press
r e 1 e a s e that Dominica is joining the
Caribbean Organisation, popularly
known as CARIBO, which has its head-
quarters in Puerto Rico. In fact, as we
have long been the main prodders to-
wards membership, we should have been
exceedingly disappointed if this Territory
had not joined.
The advantages of association on an
international-Caribbean scale e are so
obvious that we need hardly underline
them here, save to point to CARIBO's
high and practical aims on regional plan-
ning, tourism, agriculture, trade, develop-
ment, foreign aid, self-help and develop-
ment in general aims wh i ch will
diminish a dog-eat-dog attitude as time
goes on, and draw the future U n i t e d

States of the Caribbean closer together.
But t h e r e is something intangible
which is of paramount importance: that
is the vital interest of CARIBO in nur-
turing the arts, history and music, and
cultivating the distinctively varied Carib-
bean flavour of regional creative endea-
yours. CARIBO has had the g o o d
sense to appoint a Secretary-General of
splendid reputation, and a poet as head
of its Development and Information De-
partment. Although neither of t h e s e
gentlemen has yet paid Dominica a visit,
we may look forward to a call from one
of them in the near future. Meanwhile
it is fine news that a representative from

ofthe D.U.PP., has launched an

NMr. Edward, who has clearly dem-
onstrated t hat irresponsibility in
criticism which has been one of the
fundamental aspects of my criticism
of the D.U P.P. He, Mr. Edward,
has something to lose, and it is a

his interest. But unfortunately for
Mr. Edward, his interest is incompa-
tible with that of the majority, which
is aligned with the labour stock and
hence the Labour Party.
Mr Edward Charles has challenged
my sincerity about my aspiration for
Dominica advancement, by playing
upon the fact that I have left the
island for the United Kingdom, in-
stead of remaining on the island to
take an active part in the develope-
ment But Mr. Edward seems to be
deeply ignorant about the limited
scope and general dormancy on the
island pre-Labour era. The island
had been in a deplorable state and
produced an environment which
compelled young Dominicans to
progressive spirit and aims to resort
to excessive drinking, because there
was no alternative avenue to encour-
age initiative. This was the reason
for the cataclysmic migration to the
U.K., even by some civil servants,
and this was caused by people hke
Mr Edward Charles who tended to
govern by instinct insteadd of reason.
Mr. Edward, for your enlighten-
ment, the majority of Dominicans
migrated in search of improvement
and this embraces a search for know-
ledge, I know many Dominicans
who had no chance of progress at
home, and who today are profession-
al men or in the process of becoming
so. These migrant Dominicans will
not only be an asset to Dominica but
the prospective recruits in the fight
for negro respectability in this rapidly

American Women
In Politics
By Samuel Grafton
(Courtesy Of USIS)
Women in politics are no
longer news in the United f
States, but what is news is the'
increasing speed with which P
more women are entering
politics, and winning a place
for themselves, not only as I
candidates but as candidate-
One reason more women
are going into politics is the
increasing interest in educa-
tion since World War I1.
They are making their voices
heard and their votes count
to get better schools for their
Another reason is their con-
cern for city improvements.
Women take pride in clean
cities, good streets, improved
lighting systems, and better
recreational and cultural
facilities. Therefore, they are
entering politics and through
this means they "determine
the fate of most bond issues,"
according to John Bailey,
chairman of, the Democratic
National Committee.
SSuburban life has tended to
sweep women into politics.
With their husbands working
in the cities women have had
to take over the political
canvassing, telephoning, and
transporting of voters to the polls on
election day or it doesn't get
done. The suburban pattern has
spread back to the cities and out
into the rural sections. The result:
women political workers today out-
number men by four or five to one
in maty areas. And as the number
of women in politics grows greater.
there is taking place what may prove
to be the most profound change in
the American social and political
structure since the vote first went to
women in 1920.
Typical of the new order is Mrs.
Betty Digon, a pretty young mother
in Royal Oak, Michigan, a Detroit
"I'm section coordinator for eight
Democratic precincts," say Mrs.
Digon. "This takes eight to o1
hours a week, the year round. I have
set up files for the the eight precincts
under precinct maps in my recrea-
tion room. I also go to Detroit two
full days a week to work in the office
of the state Democratic organization.

One or two nights a week I have
political meetings." She receives no

A Writer's Reply
Cont. from p. 3
A novel, trashy or not, is
simply a story the expres-
sion of a writer's living imta-
gination. How can anybody
consider a good writer's
work futile and the writer
himself insane?
Reading educational books
can under no circumstances,
make one cease to be back-
ward so long as you live in a
backward country. Reading
novels of any kind would
help to dimimish the back-
wardness of a poor, unlearn-
ed person I say 'poor' be-
cause this territory is not
considered a rich one; and a
poor man can hardly afford
just a return trip by even a
Federal boat to a country of
importance, where he might
be able to see theworld spin.
In is only when he goes out
into the world and returns
that he would realize the
backward state of his coun-
try. So you see how the
't r a s h y novel' helps? It
broadens the vision.

British Comment

"The Times" is worried not
only by the millions of copper
needles launched into space but
also by a Bitish White Paper
publsbed on 16 h May in which
as it says, a working party of
scientist s report that "the United
St sites has apparel tly carried out
a series af high level nuclear tests
since 1958 without consulting the
sci nttsts of other countries".
At least one of these tests, accor-
ding to "The Times" is said to
have changed the environment
of the earth for several years.
and the paper thinks this sort of
thing ought not to be done
without first consulting the scien-
tists whose work it may affect.
This "Guardian" agrees in
general witli this view but finds
it "hard to imagine that such ex-,
periments can be subject to mu-
tual ar angemnent while there is no
agree nan oa atm) pheri tests".
It adds that "wisdom is falling
dismally far behind man's tech-
nical skill".
The "Scotm in" thinks that
the menace to health is the
strongest motive for strenuously
seeking agreement to an end
to nuclear tests, for "even the
best regulated nuclear explosions
are undesirable". The "Glasgow
Herald" advises radio astrono-
mers and other space scientists
to recogn'se that their work
would not be supported on. the

Carnival Fire (from p. 3)
Daway Testifies Againi
Tames Daway, who was recalled,
testified that at about 2,30 pm. on
Carnival Monday he was standing
near Mr. Winston's house at the
corner of Queen Mary St. and Fields
Lane and saw a band coming down
Queen Mary St. "Some of the men
forming the band went up to Edward
Shillingford's verandah, one of the
men was masked, They did not
stay long. The band soon returned
-while I was standing near to
Erics bread shop in Queen Mary
St. Inspector Johnson and Inspector
Doctrove were behind the band.
I followed the band, which turned
in to King George V St. There
were some men on Constitution
Hill. The band stopped. I was
standing near Mrs. Charles Bully's
home, the musicians were speaking
to each other, which got me suspi-
cious. I left and went over to the
other side of the street; I heard an
explosion and when I looked I saw
flames in the air and Martin on fire.
I saw the same two policemen
standing near a pipe at the corner of
King George V St. and Upper
Lane. Coporal Lawrence was then
looking out of his window, a house
just below Mr. Lartigue's home."
In answer to the Commissioner,
Daway continued: "The police
were in a position to see flames.
The same man I had ,seen on
Edward Shillingford's veranda (with
the mask) struck Ena Joseph and
she fell." Daway then went on to,
reiterate his previous statement about
EnaJoseph sayitig: '(hey should not
I.ave done lhair it s Bboy and I.
will tell."
Arnold Acrive who was,:not

summoned and Louis Delsol, who
is out of the island were not present
to give evidence.
The Inquiry adjourned sine die.

A Monstrous Untruth

When I started writing this
column, it was always my intention
to keep clear of controversy.
Last Saturday evening, the
Governing Body of D A. S. A.
released a statement to the local
Radio Station, which referred to my
report of the same day headed
"Mellow for Grenada."' The
release stated that D. A. S, A. was
not aware of the tact that Mellow
was being sent to Grenada and that
it was a suggesutin from me. My
report, the statement continued, was
not authentic. I would like our
readers to know that this is a
monstrous untruth. It was a deliber-
ate attempt to discredit me and this
newspaper. The suggestion did
come from me, but the Secretary of
D,A.S,A. acted on it. I was later
informed by him that he had
contacted the Vice President and
was instructed to te 1ephone
the Capt a in of the Dominica
team in Grenada. Soonat-.
t e r the telephone call I was told
that I could put in my report,
which I did. It information irom
the Secretary of any organization is
not considered as authentic, then I
think that this organization should
cease to exist.
The crux o- the matter is that
_DA.S.A. is now presided over by
an individual who will agree to
nothing unless it is his idea. The
Secretary and other members have
been spineless in not sticking to a
decision made 'by them in the
absence of the President.
All in all. the only one who has
suffered in this unfortunate incident
is Mellow. He was by far the most
penetrative fast bowler in the 1962
Goodwill Tournament, and most
of us felt that he deserved a chance
to represent the Windward Islands
against Trinidad. That chance could
only have come if he had taken part
in the curicit match between Dom-
inica and Grenada.

Grenada Qualifies For
Inept Batting By Both Teams
At Queens Park in Grenada
on Tuesday, the Grenada bow-
lers quickly got rid of the St.
Vincent tail to win the match by
101 runs.
Taking first strike Grenada's
batting failed against the spin
bowling ot Trimingham (7 for
36). Only Steel (33) and Huxley
Williams (31 were able to stem
the tide for short periods. Steel
batted well against the pace
attack, but was dismissed as soon
as the spinners came on.
St. Vincent found the going
even more difficult and could
only muster 81. Thistimeit was
Archer (5 for 25) who did the
damage. It beats me how
experienced players like Bramble,
Gresham, Jackson, Steel and
Renwick have been so paralyzed
on a wicket which was not
reported to be difficult. Now
don't you for one moment
mention the change from matting
to turf. The onlIy difference
between these two wickets is pace
off the pitch. The basic princi-
plee of batting remain the same

even if you are playing on the
beach. Geoffrey Siolmeyer and
Cliffrdl Roach played all their
lives on mating w kets, but never
failed to produce their best
form in England and Australii.
Grenada again failed in the 2nd
innings. Anthony (5 for 39) was
the chief architect of destruction.
They were all out for 125, thus
setting St. Vincent 172 for victory.
After a promising start, the
Vincentians' middle batting failed to
consolidate and Gresham ran through
the tail. They were all out for 70
leaving the home team victorious by
101 runs. For St. Vincent, opener
Samuels batted a sound, intelligent
innings of 32.

Dominica Toils All Day

Grenada and Dominica started
their all important final match at
Queen's Park on Thursday. Both
teams decided that changes were
necessary. Grenada brought in Hood
and Constantine to replace Walker
and Gabriel, while Dominica re-
placed Simon and Jno Baptiste with
Josephs and Hasel Williams.
Grenada elected to bat on a wick-
et which proved to be lvely in the
first hour, but easy paced for the rest
of the day. With 18 runs on the
board, Pierre had Renwjck caught
and bowled for 8, and shortly after
Horace Williams was caught behind
off the same bowler Tor 4 Gresham -
did not last long, he was brilliantly
caught by John off St, Hilaire's
bowling. At this point the score
was 29 for 3 and things looked black
for Grenada. Redhead was promo-
ted in the batting order and together
with Johnnie Steele, they slowly
weathered the storm. From 29 for
3, these two Datsmen were not seper-
ated until the score was 136, a part-
ship of 107. This was probably the
best partnership by a Grenadian pair
in post war cricket. Redhead played
an innings foreign to h:m. He put
his head down and curbed his nat-
ural instinct to clout the ball. No
praise is too high for this fine crick-
eter who has served Grenada well
in the past decade. His 81 included
only 7 fours. Steele proved that he is
by far the most attacking opening
batsman in the Windward Islands.
He never missed a scoring chance
and gave his best performance against
Dominica to date.
I thought that skipper Shilling-
ford introduced Josephs into the
attack a bit late. He was not brought
on until the score had reached 130,
and he immediately broke the long
partnership when he disturbed Steele's
wicket for 68. From then on, our
boys were simply magnificent Leroy
Shillingford handled the bowling
like a veteran and Grenada were all
out for 196. Pierre has surpassed all
expectations, he again was the hero
of the side. His 5 for 44 in 30 overs
was simply superb. This gives him
a total of 18 scalps, and there is still
another innings to come. I have not
been able to lay hands on bowling
statistics, but Pierre must be pretty
close to capturing more wickets than
anyone else in a tournament. St.
Hilaire also bowled magnificently
and folks at Soufiiere can well be
proud of him. He got 3 wickets.
for 58 in 29.2 overs. Gregoire was



highly efficient behind the stumps.
At stumps on the second day, the
score was Grenada 196, Dominica
all out 145: L. Shillingford 37,
Archer 6 for 58.
Rain Ruins Interesting
Heavy rain on the last day ruined
the possibility of a fine finish between
the West Indies and Surrey at the
Oval. The final scores were -
West Indies 191 and 145 for I,
Carew 74; Surrey 195, Barrington
I I not out.

Laville Due Home Soon
Competing against the top jave-
lin throwers on the West Coast of
the United States on irth May, Ben
Laville tossed the spear 234 ft iIins
his best throw ever. But this effort
could only put him in 4th place, so
high was the standard of competi-
tion. Frank Covelli of Arizona
was first with a throw of 263ft, 9-2
inches. Watch out for this name
in the next Olymp cs. Laville's
throw puts him 15 ft. in front of any
freshman javelin thrower in the Un-
ited States and is 52ft., IIns. better
than his throw which broke the
W\st Indc' record in 1962 This
is an example of what proper coach-
ing and practice can do to any
young talented man; Lai ni' i idue
back home soon, and I am certain
that he wiil pass on his knowledge
to our young aspiring javelin throw-
