impending exposure in April,
last, when Graham Norton
gave some of the facts in his
London Letter.
Earlier this year there was
a shooting incident in Lon-
don. Show girl Christine
Keeler ran to a West Indian
friend's fat and was pur-
sued there by her ex-lover,
Jamaican John Edgecombe,
who fired a revolver through
the locked door and shot her
protector. Edgecombe was
sentenced to seven y e a r s
imprisonment. Mr. Profu-
mo's name was later linked
with Christine's in heated
de b a t e s in the House of
Commons, but he denied
improper association, saying
he would not hesitate to
i s s u e writs for libel and
slander if allegations w e r e
repeated outside the House.
The rumour-mongers were
silenced, especially w h en
Mr. Macmillan himself sup-
ported his Minister. But
t o d a y the whole squalid
story has been admitted.

Dubious Liaison

The earlier row over Mr.
Profumo was closely con-
nected with the British Gov-
ernment's struggle with the
press, which led Mr. Harold
Wilson to siy in the House,

Loan' Bill

At the meeting of the Legislative
Council last Tuesday, the first item
on the agenda was the swearing-in
of the Acting Clerk, Mrs. P. A.
Frampton. Shortly before t h i s,
news of the death of the Pope had
b e e n received and the Council
stood in silence as a mark of respect
and reverence for the loss of a great
religious leader.
An absentee at the meeting was
the "oldest member," Hon. Howell
Shillingford, who had been hospi-
tahzed: the C, M. moved a motion
to wish Mr. Howella speedy
le over, The special business of
the Councl was then proceeded to,
consisting of a revised ordinance to

Securities to be issued, should the
Government wish at any time to
foat a loan on the London Market.
Since the Ordinance was prepared
at the suggestion of the Colonial
Office, it was passed without
comment. The meeting lasted less
than quarter of an hour

Premier Cheddi Jagan
No agreement has yet been
finalised over the provisions of the
Labour Relations Bill (the Govern-
ment still wishes to retain ult mate
control of any interunion agreement)
and so the strike goes on, with water
rationed as well as fuel and food.
Latest trouble is the refusal of
the Supreme Court to lift the
suspension imposed by the Speaker
of the Legislative Assembly on
Prime Minister Jagan and three of
his supporters after alleged rudeness
in the corridor of the Chamber the
previous week. The Speaker is
willing to lift th e suspension
if the members will apolog ze, but
this they refuse to do. The
occasion was the renewal of the
Emergency Bill, in which the
Speaker allowed the Opposition
to move an amendment and then
"talk out" the bill. With four
Government members missing and
one minister dead, Jagan's majority
in the Assembly has disappeared.


The World Mourns
Shortly after three o'clock on Whit Monday after the
hushed anxiety of Pentecost Sunday, His Holiness Pope
John XXIII, who had for some days been gradually losing
his hold on mortal life, breathed his last. On Wednesday
and Thursday the Pontifi's body lay in state at St. Peter's
Basilica and was visited not only by many notables but also

him so well and wished to pay their
last respects.
Earlier, members of the Pope's
family had visited him to say good-
bye. These included his three brothers
and his sister.
Humble Birth
Born Angelo Guiseppe Roncalli,
the son ofa farmer, on Nov. 25, 1881,
in Fot:o il Monte, near Bergamo
Pope John became at the age of 78
the most memorable and beloved
Papal Head of modern times. He
had a special message to give the
world, and five ,penultimate years,
at the Vatican in which to deliver
Tii: ,>-'.. -i'can-- spoKein; it was
many umei repeated, and
was received with. under
standing all over the globe..
It was a message oflove, brother-
hood and unity, but expressed in
practical and workable terms suitable
to the century, rather than in the va-
gue terminology to which we are all
too accustomed. Moreover, along
with the message steps ofpositive action
were taken, Last year the Ecumenical
Council was opened by Pope John's
benediction, and he had worked
hard.to make this immense religious
gathering the most cordial, thoughtful
and broadminded c o n c la v e of
churchmen possible. The effect of
his words and actions will gather
momentum lone after the interment
of his body, which was laid to rest
in the Basilica of St Peter's quietly
and privately at his own request on

Tributes From World Leaders
All religious denominations paid
t r i b u te Protestant, Jew and
Moslem -- to a reli .,us leader who
had preached tolerance. Cables were
received from world rulers includ-
ing Queen Elizabeth iI and Presi-
dent Kennedy and condolences were
sent from Cuba and Moscow.
The Herald, a free and indep-
endent newspaper, wishes to add its
humble words of respect and sorrow
at the passing of this noble Prelate
of our time, and to sympathise with
all clerical and lay members of the
Church who have suffered such an
irreparable loss.

"New Statesman"
Just fifty years ago what
has become Britain's most
famous political weekly was
first published. The "New
Statesman" was yet another
of t h o s e Fabian creations
destined to become institu-
t i o n s like the London
School of Economics and,
even, the Labour Party,
1913 was perhaps the hey-
day of the weekly, the journ-
al of opinion published in
London, read and discuss-
ed there, and also going out
to provincial town and coun-
try' parsonage, Since then
the tempo of life has become
less leisurely. The radio,
and finally television, has
become the focal point for
the airing of views, and the
gathering of news in busy
-an's lives. A result of

li 1931. Yet itselfit sur-
vived, is a flourishing suc-
'cess, even indeed on capita-
list terms The Statesman
and N a t i on Publishing
Company pays an average
dividend of 15%.
In terms of influence too
it is probably only approach-
ed (and often surpassed) by
"T h e Economist." And
like the latter it has a strong
overseas readership. It is
said that the White House
has a standing order for 63
c o p i e s for the American
Executive Branch of the
Government alone. (A
famous photograph exists of
President Kennedy's room in
the White House w i t h
an easily identified copy of
the "New Statesman")
In terms of circulation it
too is top of the table.
Weekly sales are about
87,000 by far the highest
of all the political weeklies.
What is the paper really
like? The editorial offices are
situated, as any reader knows
who troubles to read the small
print on trleAck cover (under those
intr gu.ng s'iall advertisements
where Socialism rubs should-
ers with birth control and
yoga), in Great Turnstile.

Not mu.y of us remem-

stream will cause the salient
features and the historic
even s to be washed into the
background, and recede into
the limbo of the dead for-
gotten past. We shall in
ti me forget the faces and
speeches of those who tried
to fashion a whole out of
scattered islands. We shall
remember, through the his-
torian, the facts, even though
they may not make a logical

But you may ask why

heard Mr. Bradshaw talk a-

When the names of the
thirteen players to represent Domin-
ica in the 1963 Goodwill Tourna-
ment were announced the selector
came in for severe criticism.
Two articles appearing in the
Dominica Chronicle and the
DOMINICA HERALD respectively on
Saturday 4th May by players who

were not considered for selection,
and if asked to be reproduced by
these writers I am sure they would
prefer to append their nom-de
plume instead of their names.
It would be wise for the benefit
of readers for me to reproduce
without the consent of the writers a
few lines from each of these articles.
A caption of the article appearing
in the HERALD by the sports
reporter reads "The year 1963 will
be remembered by Cricket fans as
the one in which the selectors made
the worst blunder inthe history of

our cricket." The other appearing
in the Chrontcle states "I would
like to ask what must one do to
earn a pick on the Island team.
Must one await the migration of
players who are less in form or
must one await their death?" He
continues, "Imagine the selectors
include a Fast Bowler who is yet to
take a wicket in trial'".
The fast bowler in question was
Jerome P:erre the man who captured
twenty wickets in four innings much
to the disbelief of his critics. Be-
fore the team left Dominica it was
rumoured that Skipper Shillingford
might well play William instead of
Pierre, who it was said would make
the trip as a tourist. It seems incredi-
ble that anyone who knew anything
about cricket cou'd hold such a
view. Actually it did not happen

American Women
In Politics

By Samuel Grafton

(Courtesy of USIS)

(ConT. from our last issue)

"It all starts very simply, with the
first littlejob of work," say Mrs.
Ruth Watson, vice chairman of the
Republican central committee of
Californa. Ten years ago Mrs.
Watson, wa ked into the commia.ee
office and offered to help during a
national election. Immediteiy alter
the campaign ended, she was asked
to run the headquarters. Elglt years
later she was placed on the platform
committee at the Rpubhrcan nanonal
convention. This comm ttee is res-
ponsible for deciding the issues and
policy matters in a nat onal election,
and to be made a member is a high
post for any political worker
Mrs. Watson has made a po nt
of never asking for any of the posts
she has held. Like Betty Digon, she
accepts no pay for her work or
reimourseureut tor travel.
Counterpart to Mrs. Wtson is
Democratic party worker Ann Al-
-on, attractive young mother in
Francisco, Caltiornia. Mrs.
Wn is remembered for having
to her job in the mornings

L7_c__i tpJesoday as
'cne unpaid coordinator ot etery-
:hing,' Mis. Alanson did not stay
long at the the headquarters house-
keeping level To help finance the
1960 presidential campaign, hers
was the guiding hand behind thou-
sands of women volunteers who
raised almost $200,000 in one-dollar
contributions in a mammoth door-to
-door drive.
This type of money raising, which
is spreading among the women of
both parties, tends to reduce depen-
dence on the old style of fund raising,
and demonstrates how women are
actually changing the forms of poli-
tical practices in America
Specially gifted women have
moved fast in climbing out of
routine precinct chores to the level
of policy making For example, in
many states women serve as country
chairmen and are the acknowledged
leaders in their areas.
While there are only two women
Senators and Ii Representatives in
the U. S. Congress out of a total
membership of 535 in both houses,
it must be remembered that it takes
time to climb to these augi st levels,
and the major push of women into
politics is still quite recent, Some
political observers believe that women
are still in the process of acquiring the
necessary experience for the top jobs.
As more women advance to the
top posts on the national level, hun-
dreds of others are taking over the
small jobs on the local level, For
example, two years ago Mrs Norma
Gibbs of Seal Beach, California, a
small community that borders the
Pacific Ocean, decided there was a
dearth of good people running for
town mayor.
'It didn't have to be a woman,''
she says, but since she had been
complaining about the lack of good
candidates, she came to believe she

had to take on the task. "Nobody
coa,d have had less experience," she
"Getting elected wasn't important
to me," she says. -'It was waking
people up to understand the import-
ance of loc.l government ''
The people caught her enthusiasm,
and many women gave -coffees"
(a new invention of women poltical-
wo.KCr get-togethers), usually at 10
in the morning while children were
;n school 'his gave Mrs. Gibbs
a chance to speak to more than one
woman at a time and still have the

FRIDAY, JUNE 7, 1963


Grenada Wini 19B3
Two years ago, I witnessed a
boxing match between two promis-
ing young fighters, one in white
shorts and the other in black.
The first round was fairly even.
Black shorts got on top in the
second round and looked a certain
winner by the end of the third.
Early in the fourth round, black
shorts ran into a terrific right hook
from white shorts, and took a count
of eight. Seconds later, he was
knocked out by the lightest of left
The final match in the 1963
Goodwill Tournament reminded me
of this boxing match. Black shorts
being Dominica and white shorts.
Grenada. Our boys were equal in
every department of the game to the
Grenadians, until the final day.
Irving Shillingford's dismissal by a
creeper can be compared with the
right hook which foored black
shorts for an eight count. From
then on, our batsmen simply
panicked. Instead of going on the
defensive, they all tried to hit their
way out of trouble, and looked like
school boys batting when the law
"Tip and out not good" applies.
Thispathetic display was nothing
new to me. I reported it in this
column after the third trial match
when a powerful batting side col-
lapsed from z for I to 121 all out.
I said then "If this sort of thing is
to be repeated in Grenda. D. A.
S. A. might as well leave our team
here and use the funds to send
Walter Rock ta the next Wimbledon
Championship". "This sort of
thing" has been repeated in Grenada,
and Dominica has failed to win a
Tournament abroad for over 30
years. I think it would be a good
idea if an inquiry were held to find
out why is it that our boys cannot
win away from home. Many
cricket fans have taken consolation
in the fact that six members of our
team were selected to represent the
Windward Islands against Trinidad.
I would have been more satisfied
had we beaten Grenada and got no
representative on the Windward Is-
lands team.
Pierre has been the unexpected
success on our team and Elwin has
shown that he possesses the big
match temperament. The b i g
failure has been Lewis. I am not
in possession of statistics, but zI runs
in 4 innings must be the worst per-
formance by any Dominica opening
batsman since Lafond. Lewis is a
fine batsman by our standards, but
there seems to be something lacking
in his approach to the big match.
The final scores:- Grenada 196
and o04, Dominica 145 and 59.
Grenada won by 96 runs.

Elwin Rises To The
The Windward Islands won the
toss and elected to bat on a damp
wicket at Queen's Park. Play started
an hourlate due to heavy showers
overnight. The Trinidad pace
bowlers were hampered by the wet
conditions. Steele and Elwin put on
24 before Steele was out l.bw. for

4. Irving Sh llinfford then joined
Elwin and these two proceeded to
consolidate their team's position.
Shillingford was caught behind for
an impressive 30 when the score had
reached 73 The hundred came up
for the loss of two wickets, but
Gresham was bowled for 25 soon
after. John survived thirty suffering
minutes before he was leg before to
Subash Gupte for 8, L ecoy Shilling-
ford did not last long, he was caught
behind off Gupte for 5 Meanwhile,
Elwin was going we.l as the other
end. He survived two early chances,
but executed his strokes whenever
the right ball came along. He was
caught at extra-cover for a well
played 76. This was the highest
innings by a Dominican for the
Windward Islands The honour
was previously held by Val Felix
when he scored 56 against Aus-
tralia in 1955.

Pastrano Beats Johnson
In a light-heavyweight title bout
earlier this week, Willie Pastrano
outpointed the champion Harold
Johnson over [5 rounds. There will
be a return bout inside 90 days.
Cassius Marcellus Clay will meet
Henry Cooper of England on the
S8th. of this month. Clay asi usual
has predicted that he will knock
Cooper out in the sch round, British
boxing fans, on the other hand, are
optimistic; they think that Cooper
stands an even chance of beating
Clay. This has prompted an Am-
erican journalist to make the follow-
ing statement, "The illusion that
Cooper can beat Clay is in keep.
ing with a nation that still cons d-
ers itself a world power'. Quite
naturally Engl shmen all over the
world have retaliated. I think that
it was bad taste on the part of the
American journalist, though there is
a lot of truth in the statement.
