"BIG FOUR" CONFERENCE IN TRINIDAD


Jamaica, Trinidad, B.G. & Barbados Nuclear Test Ban
Agree Customs Union Accord


HEADS OF STATE of the four economically-strongest
British West Indian Territories -- Trinidad and To-
bago, Jamaica, British Guiana and Barbados met in
Trinidad this week and agreed on the thorny problem
which, above all, bedevilled the Federation- Customs


and Barbados but British Guiana
refused to accept the offer of paruci-
pation in joint ownership.
Tuesday's discussions centered on
Economic and Technical Aid and,
in keeping with Dr Williams'
declared preference for United
Nations Aid without political
strings, the representative of UNTAB
(United Nations Technical Assis-
tance Board) was present during the
seminar. Noticeable absentees from
the Conference were observer
representatives from the Caribbean
Organisation (CARIBO), from Gren-
ada (which is still waiting to be in.
corporated into a unitary
state\ with Trinidad and
Tobago) a nd the remain.
A 4 1.1


Jn:o.i. I agreement with
:he statement made before the
:he conference by Sir Alex-
ander Bustamaute, Prime
Minister of Jamaica, it was
clearly stated that no political
union such as the old Fed-
eration was contemplated.
Agreement was reached on
many of the Common Ser-
vices and a date in January
set for further talks.

Well Planned Conference
SThe four-day Conference of
Heads of West Indian G.Qvern
Hints WWilcI toor piA cuur-'in-
day till Thursday in Port-of-Spain
this week was notable for the a
declarations of attitudes by the four
governments concerned.'
Prime Minister Eric Williams
had. from his previous single meet-
ings earlier in the year with Premiers
Barrow of Barbados and Jagan of
British Guaina and Prime Minister
Bustamante of Jamaica, prepared a
well-planned Aeenda in which each
Government produced a paper on a
specific subject a true teacher's
seminar: the real interest came in
the discussions afterwards.

Federal Shipping Services
Monday was given over to sub-
jects relating to Trade and Com-
munications and was marked by a
wrangle over the Canadian gift ships
Federal Maple and Federal
Palm The suggestion that the
ships be sold and replaced by more
economical vessels was rejected (the
service is heavily subsidized) and the
question of costs was referred back
to the West Indian Shipping Conm-
pany for further examination. Pre-
mier Jagan, whose government
hitherto refused to join in the shipp-
ing services, raised the question of
Cuban shipping to be brought into
any joint arrangements, BritLh
Guiana is at present involved in
two-way trading arrangements with
Cuba, but Trinidad and Tobago
have resisted Cuban overtures along
these lines, and the suggestion horri-
fied Jamaica.

B. W. I. A, Accepted By Three
The Trinidad-owned British
West Indian Airways was agreed on
as the common carrier by Jamaica

tigua, Mr. Vere Bird,' had remarked
caus.ically "that the smaller
territories were better out of it".

Quickest Three-Power
Conference
After only eleven day' of talks a
Nuclear Test Ban agrc:ni-nt h is
been reached by the three nuclear
powers, Great B:itain, the United
States of America and the Soviet
Union. Lord Hailsham, Britain's
Minister of Science, America's
Averill HArriman, Undersecretary of
State and Mr. Gromyko conferred
in a spirit of amity from the start,
with Mr. Krushchev setting the
tone with an opening remark: "why
do we not just sign it straight
away".
France will Press On
In the course of the next few days
Britain's Foreign Secretary Lord
Home and U. S. Secretary of State
Dean Rusk will be flying to Moscow

par nations will be invited
d edia.el, However,
Fr: ..isigent General de
GC .-nas already intimated his
determination that his country will:
carry on with the proposed
manufacturing of their own nuclear
deterrent" and it is not expected
that Communist China will file
eagerly up to the table to append a
signature. It is, in fact, believed by
many political commentators that
the exacerbation of the ideo:ogical
split between the two great Com-
munist countries had smoothed the
path for the agreement.
Only A Start
At the conclusion of the confe-
rence, Mr. Krushchev is reported to
have said that this was only a
beginning of a series of treaties
which he hoped could be signed to
relieve world tension and provide a
basis for "co-existence." These
sentiments will surely be echoed by
all the people of the world.

Stephen Haweis'

day of the well-known artist and

International Unions In Struggle
By A. Frederick Joseph
Gen. Sec. T. C. C. & W Union.
On July 20, under the above headline, the Dominica
HERALD trontpaged an accusation by ORIT (Inter-
Am.rican Regional Organization of Workers) to the effect
that the International Federation of Christian Trade
Unions (IFCTLJ) was "c.tau'ng cofiiiion ii the rt.ks of
Latin American and West Indian trade unionism, not
only by the sim larity of i:s initials to these of the great
world-wide ICFTU, but (it is suggested) by accepting
Communist aid in their struggle to dominate the T. U.
field in the Latin American countries."
Without prejudice to what the IFCTU has to say on
the matter, the Technical, Clerical and Commercial
Workers' Uuion offers the following the other side of
the coin -- that readers may judge for themselves:
If similarity of initials cause confusion, surely ORIT
should know who caused it. In 1920, 43 years ago, ihe
constitutive Congress of the IFCTU was held at the Ha-
gue, Protestant unions forming the majority of delegates
present. The ICFTU had its constitutive Congress in
London in 1949 after the break-away from the influence of
the World Federation of Trade Unions WFTU which
was and still is, communist-dominated. The Christian
International is therefore 43 years in existence while the
ICFTU is only 14. Who caused and is causing confu-
sion in initials?

Against Communism
The IFCT,U declared in its "Economic World
Programme of 1922" that it "is based on Christian princi-
ples and ethic, which are the foundation on which the
whole economic and social organization should rest," and
- -- imacliately ofi'" t-",the -' rxT Wrorld< Wir wmyg fnr-mnrp
than once wise enough to say no, when it was invited to
join the WFTU at a time when it promised to elicit a
"wave" of solidarity all over the world. The WFTU
lured the members of the International Federation of Trade
Unions but not the IFCTU.
Can that be interpreted as accepting anything that
has to do with Communism? It would be interesting,
however, if ORIT could say who assisted communist-
dominated unions in Chile sometime last year with
Alliance For Progress Funds. The State Department
knows.
Accepting Communist aid indeed! In South Viet-
nam today, the Christian International's affiliate, the CVTC
led by its President Tran Quoc Buu, is a veritable bul-
wark against the communists; in 1956 the IFCTU turned
town an invitation from the WFTU to start a common
action in favour of the 40-hour week, thereby being true
to its General Council Vienna Conference Resolution
(r19p) stating reasons why the Christian International
could not co operate with the Communist International
'WFTU): "there arc just no common principles wherever
between both organizations, between Christian social con-
cepts and materialistic Communism." The position was
further stated in these words "because of the misery of the
workers in the Communist countries, because of the blood
which was shed in repressing their discontent although all
they did was to claim those very rights solemnly pledged
them by the WFTU itself, there can be no question-
now less than ever -- of co-operation between the IFCTU
and the WFTU". (Labor, December 1956)
The ICFTU responded to that attitude when in its
Information Bulletin of January 1957 it took the Chris-
tian International's Secretary General to task for refusing to
take part in any action (re the Hungarian Revolt) with
which the WFTU might be associated, while neglecting to
say that there was a suggestion calling for "a common
statement by the Secretaries General of the ICFTU and the
[FCTU, saying that they were willing to go to Budapest."
In June 1961, Emilio Maspero, Executive Secretary
of the (CLASC), the Latin American Confederation of
Christian Trade Unionists (IFCTU), made the following


reply to the question "Is the ICFTU capable of preventing
Marxist infiltration by a neutral ideology?': "The ICFTU,
through its regional organization the ORIT, is a neutral
organization without ideology or mysticism in a continent
where Commn unism has deeply and definitely planted the
ideological struggle with an extra-ordinary hope and mys-
ticism which is ready to conquer all Latin America. The
ORIT is too confident in the United States policy which
has none nothing but corrupt officials and the healthy trade
union movements all over Latin America. .. due to lack
of positive ideology, foiled in their action by the efficiency
of communism, the IFCTU and the ORIT were obliged
on more than one occasion, to be a party or to practise ap-
peasement towards such dictators as Btista in Cuba or
Stroesner in Paraguay. .. (they) are incapable of control-
ling Communist penetration and up to a certain point
have encouraged it by their negative anti-communist policy
which has finally played into me hands of capitalist react-
ion and of Communism itself. . (they) do not believe
in a third trade union forcc. For them, the alternative is
either capitalism or communism! The Chrisran trade
unionists believe in a new democratic revolutionary alterna-
tive, distinct from Capitalism and communism. This
means a new ideology, determined adherents; a mystic and
more efficient organization, must be thrown into the struggle
against Communism."
No one can deny the pos tive force that the CLASC has become
in Latin America today. While it has succeeded in organizing peasants'
and farmers' Federations (a form of co-operative) it has also succeeded,
in some areas, in having governmen-s introduce Land Reform programmes,
A perfect example is Venezuela where hitherto, the peasants sheltered
the communist guerrillas, Today, thanks to the Christian orientation of
CLASC action, they are no more the friends of the so-called "Army
of Liberation" - the communist rebels.
The records show up the Democratic Socialists when they allowed
the Christain International to be conspicuous in its opposition to the "peo-
ples' -nts" which today under Communist domintion are called'
pop -"acies" (si'. Proof can be found in the case of the Bela
oi mince S 9,-Y hoWever, the- s Democratic Socia ss wsfho
fornh ICFTU, have changed but as A. Vanisiendael of
the ( ...an International aked in 1962, "the question is whether to
rej., Communism is enough and whether to propagate freedom and
democracy is a strong enough antidote against communist penetration "
Another question is why are certain stooges of the Batista regime still used
(up to 1962 for certain) as p r p a g a t i n g agents of the free trade
union movement and why ORI F had nothing to say when in February
the Dominican Republic tried to impose a Central Trade Union Move-
ment by force of law (it will be recalled that the TCCWU sent cables of
protest to the President of the Stare and Legislature, the U.N. and I.L,O.).
Vanistendael admits that "it is not pleasant to recall all this", but feels
that the public is entitled to know all the facts, past and present, so that
it should be able to decide what exactly is the position, and which are its
alliances in the fight for freedom, democracy and human dignity.
To be concluded next week

QUOTE OF THE
WEEK

The business of Government in a
modern world is to prescribe and en-
force the law and not to act as censors
of morals or guardians of :he public
tasie,
The responsibility is thus thrown
back on the individual. But the
individual can act collectively by vo-
luntary effort as well as individually.
He should use whatever position he
holds as an editor, as a teacher,
as a judge, as a Member of Parlia-
ment, as a writer, as a parent, as a
member ofa Church, to upheld ad-
equate standards. -

Of course the shopkeeper has been
looking for the Inspector of Weights and

no doubt everything is in order. There
is absolutely no element of surprise in the
official visitation.
How different is the procedure in Great
Britain and other Commonwealth coun-

lands, one reads of cases of defective mea-

because this is often the expression

there was no justified reason.

By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter VIII


People who fall in love with other human beings
sometimes become disenchanted or indifferent. This can-
not be said of people who fall in love with islands: their
obsession is usually life long. N-ver in all my days have
known of an island which inspires such strong feelings of
infatuation and partisanship as the island of Dominica, al-
though some of the other West Indian Islands are close
rivals and I understand this passion well, as in my case it
of the was prenatal. Those who love Dominica may be called
e" two true lovers, as they recognize and expect the faults and fail-
ltinke ing of their beloved. Some of these people are natural-
hepeople born Dominican; others come from outside and fall under
a single the spell. All are victims of possessive and obsessive pass-
a single ion, and even the outside-born soon talk as if the island
of fixed belong:to them personally, which is a source of both prile

hts and ing in the beauty has been called by various names, such

out and exterminate. There is a tale that a tourist-lady,

Africa On Road To RomeP
Comment by Cecil Northcott-
From "British Weekly"
Papal policy in Africa during the last forty years has
paid off in handsome dividends. The famous missionary
encyclicals of Pope John's predecessors, Pius XI and XII,
directed the attention of the faithful to Africa. Men, wo-
men and money have poured into the continent in order to
ensure that, ,ith North America, the Roman Church
should have secured foundations in the two key continents
of the world.
The instruments of this Papal policy in Africa are the
great missionary orders, and in particular the White Fathers
who have been ab c t, dr..w on devout Caiho'i' communi-
ties such as the Irish for massive and continuous replenish-
ments of their ranks. The main target areas are the East
and Central African countries, and in the West a special
drive on Eastern Nigeria. The total result of this policy is
that, South of the Sahara, out of some 52 million Christ-
ians a good 30 millions are Roman Catholic.
Pope John's reign was, of course, too short to make
any changes in the Africa policy but the Vatican Coun-
cilwas probably under greater pressure fiom Africa thanks
usually recognized. There is only one African Cardinal,
Laurian Ruganbwa, of Tanganyika, but his presence was
a reminder of the immense, potential significance of Africa.
This appeared in the discussions on the liturgy and the de-
mand for it it to be expressed with other languages than
Latin.
Pope Paul will have to reckon with the surge of ex-
pectancy that Africa will be allowed to be African in its
worship.
.'Accompanying this hope is the eagerness of Catholic
Africa to be in the /'lay apostolate" movement of the
church which (iives the'livnian his acknowledged place


in the chuch affairs. The Ror.ian Church has been ise
Enough in Africa to encourage this movement, and also to
see to. it that its young priests are inttouch with the rising
side of Africa's nationalistic intelligensia., They have been
taught to "think back" and to avoid being caught, like
other European directed churches, with the stigma of "white
man's religion."
The Roman Church has many clear advantages in
the new Africa, which a new Pope may well and legiti-
mately, deploy. The first of them is its universality. It
could march with the Addis Ababa front of a united
Africa, and offer its mantle of catholicity to a movement
which must have religion at its heart if it is to make a gen-
uine appeal to Africa.


Secondly it offers the most massive Christian front
to the advance of Islam by reasons of its virtues and also
its vices. The Roman Church manages somehow to be
"colour blind" and is fir less inhibited about race and
racism than churches within the Protestant traditions. It
has also has the advantage, in former British colonial
Africa, of never being officially associated with the govern-
ing colonial power.
Rome may well appear to be "cstabli'hed" in the
ecclesiastical and catholic sense but never in the seculara"
and "state" pattern- an immense asset in the new Africa.
As a church she has not to live down her imperial past.
There are those who see Afiica's Christian future as a
Roman one. The style and pageantry of her worship, her
capacity to br aware of the "African presence," her readi-
ness to exalt quite ordinary men to the hierarchy and her
belief in the coming empire of the black man, all suggest
that the way of Africa will lead towards Rome. If it hap-
pened once in the eight century, and again in the sixteenth
why not in the twenty-first century of the Christian era.
That must be the long view of the in-coming Pope
and his advisers.

The Morals Of
Public Life
by Norman St. John-Stevas
(Jfom "The Obs'rver")
Sympathy with Mr. Profumo's
personal p ight should not be allowed
to obscure the fact that is raises in
acute and fascinating form the
question of what exactly are the
moral standards which the British
people can expect fiom their leaders
in public life, The question is
particularly difficult t o answer
because the British people themselves
have no one standard of morality:
some follow Christian standards,
others are guided by convention,
others rely on instinct.
When it comes to public moral
standards the country is forced to
fall back on Christian standards
since no others have an equivalent
prestige and clarity. But by no
means all of Christian standards are
imposed by the community: only
certain of the more basic ones.
One is that Ministers and Members
are expected to tell the truth: espe-
cially on occasions when official
Ministerial statements lend a certain
solemnity and significance to the
proceedings.

Expected to be honest
There is universal agreement ..hat
by lying on such an occasion Mrn
Profumo committed a grave m .. -

TRADE'UNION NE9WS

Confusion In
Latin America
The history of Trade Un-
ionism in Lain America is
a chequered one and rejects
very much the political ui-
certaintics in the area during
the last 50 years. Before the
splitting in two of the World
Trade Union movement,
which prior to World War
II had only one central or-
ganisation, the World Feder-
ation of Trade U n i o n s
(WFTU), things wcre sim-
plified int that Latin Ameri
can unions, it they were
affiliated to any world or-
ganisation at all, could belong
only to the one.
With the secession of
large parts ot Europe to Com-
munism and the fact that
the WFTO was thus dom-
inated by trade unions which
were de facro Communist.

these with the British T.U.C.
and. the French CGT, be-
came the leading groups in
the ICFTU.
Enter GLASC
Several of the unions in
the British West Indies held
back for some time, before
transferring their allegiance to
the ICFTU, and most of the
Latin American Unions, not
helped by the Peronista set-
up in the Argentine, found
themselves in a confused
state, and neither joined the
ICFTU nor kept up their
membership in the WFTU.
Into the confusion stepped a
minor "International" the
IFCTU (the International
Federation of Christian Trade
Unions) with its regional
counterpart CLASC to
complicate the issue.
ORIT & CGL
The regional organization for
theAmericas of the ICFTU has its
headquarters in Mexico and is
known as ORIT. The affiliated sub-
organisation for the Caribbean Area
is the Caribbean Congress of La-
bour, with its offices, in Port-of-
Spain Trinidad. CLASC has re-
cetly been attacking ORIT, and
the tenor of some of these attacks
can be measured by the tone of some


DOMINICA HERALD ,


resolutions passed by the CLASC
Congress held recently in Caracas,
Venezela. One starts off:
"WHEREAS: the Dominica
Republic hIs farmed a pseudo-con-
gress provoked by mercenary agents
ar the service of oligairchlis, plutoc-
racies and impe-ialism which oppress
our people, and said pseudo-congress
sponsored ly ORI I."
Iiarxist Terminology
The resolution thetl proceeds to d. n-
ounce ORIT in further verbiage more
suitable to Moscow or Pciping. At
the same conference there was a
resolution on the Alliance for Pro-
gress "deploring the formaton of
an advisory Labor Committee".
One way or another it appears
that CLASC is playing the Com-
munisi game, whether intentionally
or not It has purported to cooperate
wlth ORIT, promised support for
certain lines of action etc, and then
done the opposite.

have been much too loose in'~their
financial arrangements with the
Coney Island,,in that no arrange-
ment',were made for Inland Rev-
enue Inspectos or what have you
to witness ihe checking of nightly
takes.
All that this government hopes
to collect is Income Tax and for
that purpose they will be bound to
accept whatever figures the Coney
Islanders" give.
Rather than the Minister of Fin
ance wanting to throw his weight
around by climbing the Bingo Stand
to 'protect the peoples' money'
as he said, just to be turned down
in shame and humiliation before a
big crowd, he had better be more
ingenious in securing the territory's
just share of revenue from the Coney
Island sweep.
All-in-all I think they should
now be asked to show cause why
they should not leave Dominica
immediately. For cannot history be
repeated?
STAR LESTRADE,
18:7:63: Goodwill
Dear Sir,
As Sponsors of Bartley
Bros. Coney Island in Dominica,
I would like to comment on an
article by Sisserou and a letter each
by Star S. Lestrade and A. Freder-
ick Joseph in the local press.
SISSEROU : has perched on the
wrong tree and his or her allegation
of expulsion of Bartley Bros. Coney
Island from St. Vincent is incorrect
as this group has never been to St.
Vincenrt
Bartley Bros. Coney Island has
been in the Cairbbean for the past
three years and has never experienced
any trouble with any Government
or its Tax Department, They have
played in Curagoa, Aruba, Trini-
dad (three times in seven different
locations,) Tobago, Barbados, Gren-


Mr. Joseph seems to be unaware
that. Bartley Bros. Coney Island
was sposord in Barbados by the
Jaycees with the same shows which
e are now enjoying in Dominica.
In summing up I would like to
say that in addition to the obvious
advertising advantages Coney Island
has meant to Dominica Bottling
Plant, there are three reasons why I
was instrumental in getting them in
Dominica:-


(I) The Jaycees would bene-
fit financially.
(2) The Dominica Cadet
Corps which was sorely in
need of funds all ot which
,Government could not
contribute for it. trip to
camp in Barbados would
benefit over and above
the amount required. It
is estimated that they
will enrich their funds
by well over $1,5oo.oo.
(3) Bartley Bros. committed
themselves to me before
they came to Dominica
for a FREE ENTERTAIN-
MENT SHow for under.
priviledged children
which will be financed
jointly between them and
Domin:ca Bottling Plant.
Since Bartley Bros, Coney Island
has been in this Island, the manage-
ment has never ceased to express their
feelings of the wonderful reception
they are receiving here and it is
unfortunate that a few discontented
and misinformed people should try
to create unpleasantness for all during
their stay.
Thanking you for space,

faction with B.rtley Bros. shows

LFSTRADE: It is .shameful that from
a small and unimportant incident
that occurred in the Bingo and in
the end was satisfactorily settled by a I
concerned to no one's embarrassment
that this writer should try to use it
as a pretext for his own personal
political end.
The Chief Minister was never
turned down n shame and humili-
ation, as stated by Mr. Lestrade. In
fact Dominicans should feel proud
that a responsible member of the
Government as the C.M. during a
period of rest and relaxation should

MR. JOSEPH: With reference to his
statement regarding the lot of the
workers in Dominica Bottling

Adloie to the Public on Hurricane U.WI. Students
Precautions IOn W.I. Writers


(from the Official Gazette)

BEFORE THE HURRICANE SEASON:-
Make yourself acquainted with the following system of warnings:-
The following signals will be made from Fort Young, in the case of
Roseau, and from the Police Station, in the case of Portsmonth, in the
event of the probable approach of a hurricane or severe gales: -
CAUTIONARY SIGNAL
(when news is received of an approachingg hurricane)
One gun or rocket will be tired at any time of the day or night, and
a red flag having a black centre will be hoisted on the signal staff by day
and a red lantern by night.
DANGER SIGNAL


(warning to take cover)
Two guns or rockets will be fired in succession and two red
with black centres will be hoisted by day and two red lanterns by
When the signal is given, steps should at once be taken to
premises on shore and vessels in port against impending danger.


flags
night.
secure


CANCELLING SIGNAL
On improvementiofweather conditions after either the cautionary or
danger signals have been trade, and it is considered that the hurricane
has passed Dominica, a blue flag will be hoisted.
With regard to the rural districts, the Police will be informed by
Headquartet and they in turn will promulgate the news throughout their
respective chstricts.

AFTER THE CAUTIONARY WARNING:-


''There is nothing common in
the work of West Indian Writers
except probably their backgrcu d,
they are all individualistic" stated
U.W.I. undergraduate Mr. Selwyn
Smith --- Vce-Presideut of th e
U.W.I. Literary Society addressing
a meeting of the Dawbiney LiUer-
ary Club on Thursday July i8th
"The Changing Mood of West in-
dian Literature."
West Indian Literature he said,
"includes all novels or poems writ-
teh by West Indians whether about
the W.I. or not. Before J. Lam-
ming, E Mi.telholzer. S. Selvon
and others there were writers trom
the West Indies but these were eith-
er Englishmen or men from other
nationalities whose language and
style were not West-Indian-like."
After stating that W.I. writers,
like politicians, were able to help in
the social upheavals of the time, that
the W.I. novel has two functions to
perform namely to dramatize and to
give readers an eye to evaluate them-
selves, he said that the authors write
particularly of the peasant class and
are interested in colour.
He then read extracts from "Far
Cry from Africa" (a poem) to
show the attitude language, and style
of cont-mporary poets.

gressed satisfactorily. Subjects of
discussion have been external affairs,
defence, the judiciary and a court of
appeal.
It has been agreed in Britain that
British Honduras will be granted
full internal self Government in
February 1964.


D.G.S. Present
Though it is popular opinion
that the Dominica Grammar School
is going through a crisis- staffing
problems, no books, no headmaster
and Minister Steven's more often
than not unwarranted interference in
school activities-- t was gratifying
to see that the D G.S. was the only
Secondary School represented at all
the lectures given by the U.W.I.
Students during the course of last
week.


Criticism
Some of the lectures for example R.
Chellemliam's 'Cabinet System of
Govt. James Croal's "Mea-ing
Evo'tion" and Norm;a Francis "Fi-
nancing ofEconoa.ic Development"
were quite good while others such
as, R. Harris "Social revolution
after the Revolution" & S Smith's
"Value of Literature" were not par-
ticularly impressive. However the
U.W I. students did bring the
University closer to the Dominican
public: The ten undergraduates left
Dominica on Saturday last.

The next question is whether

was followed by a successful libel
action against Paris Match on
April 4 and against Tempo Illus-
trato on April o1. The British
Press, aware of the power of the
iibel laws, played a comparatively
minor part in the affair.
Should these laws be relaxed in
order to enable the Press to act as
public watchdogs and hound delin-
quent public figures The answer
must surely be negative since it is no
part of the duty of the Press to spend
its time ferreting out the sexual
