Evidence Shows
More Design Than Accident

N a model report, Mr. Justice E. L. St. Bernard lucidly
sets for:h the essential evidence which he obtained as
Commissioner to investigate the Carnival Fire in which
three promising young men lost their lives. The Com-
missioner states clearly that he is unable to come to any
definite conclusion and this is best s t a t e d in his own
"I have not ruled out the possibility or even proba-
bility of an accidental fire but, in my opinion, until some
explanation could be given which reasonably accounts for
the 'black spots burns' and the streak of flame above the
heads of the people, even assuming most of the victims,
other than the deceased, were injured by radiant heat, the
evidence leans more on the side of design than accident.
I do not know the true explanation, but if the only ex-
planation for the streak of flame is that there were vapours
in the atmosphere caused by some volatile substance then
rI would rule out accident completely."
The report makes fascinating reading and should
issipate many ill-tounded rumours, even i the mystery
remains unsolved.

The President of Tanganyika, Dr. Julius Nyerere, talking with the
British Prime Minister. Mr. Harold Macmillan, when he called on him
at Admiralty House, London.
Dr. Nyerere stated recently: "The independent African countries
would like the present problems on the African continent to be resolved
peacefully. But, if Portugal continues to allege that Angola and Moz-
ambique are Portuguese territories, and if the South African minority
continues to dominate the majority in the republic, then the independent
African countries will be forced to fight. There is no choice between
shame and death. ... "

Conference Of Commonwealth
Caribbean Countries
'Continued from last week)
The following statement was made on the next item:-
12. General Question of Economic and Technical Aid
Dealing with the question of Economic and Techi-
cal Aid for the r e g i o n, the participating Governments
first considered the general problems of aid and w e r e
agreed that-
(a) insufficient funds were available for development-
a fact to which the United Nations had repeatedly
drawn attention;
(b) much of the aid dispensed had been military and
political and to countries not distinguished for their
orthodox financial measures or political stability;
(c) there was a strong case for multilateral aid ar-
rangements but there was at present a lack of ade-
quate resources for such aid. In this connection
the Conference share the conviction that the early
and effective restoration of international harmony
and a cessation of the Arms race would r e n d e r
possible a world-wide release, for the assistance of
developing countries such as those represented at
the Conference, of valuable resources now devoted
to the production of destructive weapons. Turn-
ing to the special problems of the Caribbean, the
Conference agreed -
(a) there was a widening gap between the total c o s, t,
6f-development programmes and sums r e a d il y
ivilable' for their execution;
(b) ididequate attention had been paid to the Carib-
b.ain rea as compared with other areas;
(c) thipri was a false conception of the wealth of the
Caribbean 'area based on the face that per capital
incomes in the area are higher than in, some other
trn er eveioped counities--anT an- untoimtnate ten-
dency to dispense aid on a population basis; the Caribbean had
suffered as a result of this tendency and it was -increasingly'diffi-
cult'to maintain the rate ofeconomic growth in relation to the
growth of population;
(d) ,the.application of aid had been tied to unnecessary and cumber-
smine procedures, sometimes involving a total variation of the
emphasis determined by countries fully self-governing in their
internal affairs; this is further aggravated by the refusal of the
developed countries to grant aid to a development programme
and to their insistence on aiding only such projects as they select
without regard to the priorities attached to those projects in the
countries' development programme;
(c) there were differences in the treatment enjoyed by different groups
of countries within the Caribbean area and different countries
within the same group.
In this situation, the praticipating Governments called for -
(i) increased United States assistance for all participating and other


et A"'t'" Tr:E NETHERLl


Caribbean Territories, as this area had a special claim on such
(ii) the early development of a Colombo-type Plan for the Caribbean
area involving the United Kingdom, United States and Canada;
(iii) a survey of resources of the area to be undertaken by local
experts and, if necessary, with the collaboration of appropriate
experts from outside of the region.
The following decisions were arrived at with regard to the balance
ofthe agenda.
RELATIONS: Conference agreed that coordination
of efforts in the field of External Relations was
eminently desirable and should be pursued within
the limits permitted by diplomatic practice and
TOURIST PROMOTION: Conference agreed that it
was important to the promotion of tourism that a
proper image of the Caribbean should be presented
and that joint consultation was desirable.
CITY GENERALLY: The participating Governments
will cooperate in the field of publicity both within
the area and in the international field in presenting
a true picture of events and of Government policies
and agree that for the achievement of this objective
there should be regular preparation of information
for dissemination by existing information agencies,
by the exchange of films, literature and other publi-
city and cultural material and by cooperation in
the field of trade promotion by participation in trade
fairs and exhibitions.
16 WORLD FAIR: Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago
will jointly explore the practicability of participation
in the proposed Caribbean Pavilion at the World
Fair in New York in 1964. Barbados and British
Guiana will consider the question of participation.
in this venture if Jamaica and Trinidad and Toba-
go agree to participate,
agreed that there should be consultation at the level
of Heads of Firance Ministries.
Conference noted the British Guiana paper in
respect of its boundary dispute with Surinam and
Venezuela and also British Guiana's request for
moral and diplomatic support for its cause.
Conference noted the intention of the Government of British
Guiana to seek revision of the 1941 Anglo-American Agree-
ment as Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago had already done.
Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago agreed to make available to
British Guiana information dealing with their own re-negotia-
tions in respect of their respective countries.

There ate virtues in both pur-

ourselves in books of our choice;
we may read for information, to
stimulate thought, to help our per-

enjoy reading.
No purpose requires us to ana-
lyze and parse the prose and poetry
and tear it to pieces in search of
hidden meanings. We profit most
when we read with enjoyment, just

Our approach to books can be
influenced by this undoubted truth:
books are the sole means of com-
municat:on with great minds of the
past, and the only means most of
us have to commune with the first-
rate minds of our own day. In
our books are r e c o r d e. d all the
thoughts, feelings, passions, vis-

the human mind.
Books are not inanimate masses
of wood pulp with black marks
on them; they are dynamic,,vital
things, capable of, informing and
enlivening our minds.

'60 THEY SAY"--

One of the surest ways to cut production of a com-
modity is to place a government ceiling price on it. When
the item is reduced by edict, then people cease to be inter-
ested in producing it. In fact, by making a low-price
ruling, the arithmetic of the economic process does not
make the business profitable- and without profit incentives
the product disappears from the market-place.
Local beef, local pork and locally-caught fish are the
three outstanding products that have proven beyond doubt
that when these items are restricted on the pricing, people
will produce them. Free enterprise means free choice
This is choice of price and choice of enterprise. Unless
government is willing to take over the production of beef,
pork and fish- or, by law, compel others to do it, there
will be a dearth of these products on Dominica for ever
and a day!
Usually a price ceiling is put into effect by those peo-
ple who have no economic sense. Under a misguided
attempt to "protect the people" they ram through legisla-
tion that sets a legal price limit. Then they sit back, com-
placent and smug that they have "helped the people"
without a further glance at what their handiwork has act-
ually done to and for the people. Sometimes this type of
legislation is enacted simple because someone else is doing
it and they think it is "just being smart" to copy the other
country- without regard to the facts that the two coun-
tries are dissimilar in productivity and consumption habits.
Government can operate another way: They can
forbid the sale of say, fish, for less than 6o0 per pound. ..
and create a glut of the product!
Instead of a ceiling price, a law is passed putting a
floor under the commodity below which the product can-
not be offered or sale. This is done, usually, when the

ing from the market entirely. A law likethis also protects
the people.
We are told that Dominicans do not eat enough pro-
tein, that their diet is dangerously low in protein. Beef,
pork and fish abound in protein. Can we say therefore,
that government is encouraging this low-protein diet:
Can we believe that instead of "protecting the people"
with a price ceiling on these three products that govern-
ment is the cause of a semi-starved population? We know
that these are harsh thoughts and yet, even though the law
was passed placing a ceiling price on these items, no one
ever gave it a second thought what effect this would have
on the people.
Most pork products are imported; over 90% of the
beef is imported and Dominicans buy thousands of tons
of salt fish and other fish products produced abroad. The
prices on these items are NOT effected by the ceiling-price
law. If you ponder on this for a moment it will soon
become apparent to you that government is forcing the
people (the very ones it is trying to protect) to buy beef,
pork and fish from another country, at a much higher price!
Silly. Yes, very sad, too. As if the production of beef,
pork and fish were encouraged here, not only would the
people have a higher protein-diet but it would be cheaper
or them to buy, and, lets not forget, it would create jobs.
Think about it a little longer: ifDominica slaughtered
1oo swine, zo cattle and marketed Io tons of fresh fish
every week, (i) there would be hundreds of new jobs
created to raise and slaughter the animals and to catch and
market the fish (2) Dominicans would enjoy their own
fresh meat and fish thereby cutting down on the sale of
imported beef, pork and fish keeping this money at
home (3) every man, woman and child on Dominica
would benefit from a healthier high-protein diet. And by
the way, those Dominicans employed in the business of
producing this food would also have an income whereby
they would be able to purchase other goods in fact, they
might even pay an income tax!
So the next time YOU buy steak at a dollar a
pound, ask yourself if it wouldn't be better if the whole

dollar remained on Dominica. And wouldn't you rather
eat fresh fish rather than salt fish? Most say they would,

The High Cost Of Living

Under this heading, the Barbados Sunday News in a Supplement de-
voted to women's interests published on July 28, compared the prices of
Barbadian foodstuffs with those of Trinidad. Lamenting "the terrific
cost of living today" (cabbages in Barbados are 40-66 cents per ft., while
in Trinidad they sell at 4-16 cents per It) the writer, Larel Browne, com-
"Surely there could be some stable prices fixed according to season
or at least weekly, and prices displayed on markboards, placed in fill
view of customers." Anothrr good suggestion made by Miss Browne is:
enquiree the prices at several stalls before purchasing."

It is hereby published for gen-
eral information that the formula for
arriving at the value of owner-oc-
cupied building for taxation pur-
poses shall be as follows:-
Building up to five years old
$1.oo per cubic foot; Building
from five to ten years at 8So per
cubic foot; from ten to twenty years
at 6o0 per cubic foot; Building
from twenty years and upwards at
400 per cubic foot; Open sheds
and warehouses at 400 per cubic
These values shall be subject to
a reduction of 400 thus making
the taxable value of these proper-
ties 60o% of their estimated real
It must be observed that this
formula is not merely intended to
be more realistic than the hitherto
arbitrary system of assessing owner-
occupied buildings, but in fact has
been made to relate very clearly to
the figures now existing against these
The principal advantage of the
new formula being that it provides
a basis on which not only values
will be arrived at, but also one on
which objections may be calculated.
In the case of rented properties, the
basis of rent shall continue to apply.

Since Old Testament days and indeed
the long dim pre-biblical ages, scapegoats
have been found necessary by the human
race. This has been particularly so in
times of confusion and adjustment: re-
venge against one person motivated by the
uneasy murmurings of many is a matter
of historical repetition. The greatest of
all these scapegoats was, of course, utterly
guiltless of the'charges laid against Him.
Others (being mortal) have been at fault
in one way or another, though seldom to
the full extent charged by their howling
accusers, who too often despite revenge at
any cost.
We were interested to' listen on Wed-
n e s d a y evening to a radio broadcast
quoting from the British "Guardian" on
the subject o f the interplay of justice
and politics. The commentator was dis-
cussing the aftermath of the Profumo
case, whose scapegoat was not the ex-
War Minister of Britain, Mr. Profumo,

but the wretched Dr. Stephen Ward,
who slipped out of life through suicide
in time to avoid dismal punishment; and
a number of high-up citizens (it is sug-
gested) thus avoided having their names
mentioned in the Court. It was really a
queasy victory for the reputation of the
Establishment; Ward, a guilty man,
was the prime scapegoat for the immoral
conduct of several distinguished persons.
In the meanwhile, a West Indian who
had been convicted of assaulting M i s s
Christine Keeler has had his conviction
quashed without explanation.
It was the expression "without explan-,
ation" which disturbed our commenta-
tor, who sounded relieved that the West
Indian had been released: the fact t h a t
the three appeal Judges had said "it is not
in the public interest to disclose the facts."
The British people are celebrated for
wanting to know the reasons for everything.
Their persistent demands for

explanation have helped them to preserve their democratic
rights. Some Dominicans are of a similar frame of mind.
They are still waiting to learn why a foreign scapegoat was
deported. They want to know who are the alleged scape-
goats in the various probes, and why, and what influential
persons have escaped scot-free; as the British radio com-
mentator in his distant, impartial voice said, "at this stage
the politicians take over". He added that some time the
public may hope to be fully informed on the whole affair.
-Alas, poor Dominica! We have our investigations,
--. our secret decisions, our politicians who take-over and our
couple of scapegoats who atone for the sins of the many,
but can we say that we hope to be fully informed. We
have not even an impartial radio voice which dare tell us
that it is our right to be so informed.

Dear Madam, As .a Mother,
So u will understand my worry.
Now is hoi day time and the child-
ren who lodge in Roseau for high
school and grammar school are back
at home. We parents hear what
has passed in term-time, how some
of our children are in homes in town
which are not worthy, They come
home thin and weak only having
coffee and bread for breakfast. Some
do not even get a good hot food per
day. I speak not only of my child but
also of friends children in the coun,
try. Good m o n e y is paid to these
boarding homes. Some are not homes
at all. I know of girls lodging with
women who have several children by
different men. Is this a fit example?
These conditions should be changed.
We are far from our children and
find things out too late.
Please publish me as
"MAMA,", Near Portsmouth.

Admiration f o r
Madam,-Admitted I am not
brave like.those people who signed
their names to a letter in last

my duty to express my admiration
for their action supporting HERALD,
that I agree with every word de,

What makes me happy is those
signers came from different parts of
Dominica, showing the big feeling
on behalf of your newspaper in the

though I am too coward to print
my name I will be in it too.

The Busiest Men
In Britain
John Selby
One of the most active
figures in British civil life is
the Mayor (in Scotland the
Provost) With his bright
robes and chain of office
he keeps alive a tradition that
dates back several centuries
and brings a dash of colour
to many municipal occasions.
In England, until the IIth
century, the chief officers of
the boroughs were the Reeves.
The Mayor appeared in the
12th century when municipal
life began to develop. He
did not come over with
William the Conqueror, as
some people suppose, al-
though the word is derived
from the French, maire.
The sizes of boroughs in
England and Wales vary a
great deal. Some have pop-
ulations of less than 2,000 -
other claim nearly I,ooo,ooo
citizens. But all have their
Mayors, and, in some cases,
their Lord Mayors. The ori-
gins of some boroughs date
back to the Middle Ages,
while a few are only just
enjoying heir official status.

Head Of legal Government, Lo

In the old days the Mayor
was a magistrate and held
wide legal powers. He was
in charge of the local prison
and even controlled such
things as weights and meas
ures and the size of.loaves of
bread. The mayor today is
still a magistrate.
He is the head of the local
government but delegates



some of his duties and is
guided by an expert the
Town Clerk. He is essen-
tially an independent chair-
man and, no matter what his
politics, he must remain
independent an import-
ant factor in some councils
where there is a constant
struggle among the different
political parties.
Just lately, the question
has been asked: "Are Mayors
really necessary?" One critic
has gone so far as to call them
little more than figure-heads

Commonwealth Scholarship In The
United Kingdom 1964
A substantial number of scholarships (200-250) are
offered for ccmperitic'n by Commonwealth students for
tenure from October 196. at institutions of higher learning
in Britain.
The scholarships aim at providing opportunities for
Commonwealth students normally resident in other coun-
tries to pursue advanced courses or undertake research in
Britain. They are intended for persons of higher intellect-
ual promise who may be expected to make a significant
contribution to life in their own countries on their return
from study abroad. They are primarily available for post-
graduate study or research at universities and at colleges of
technology, but may be held for courses at other institu
tions, e. g. in the fields of adult, social or rural education, of
fine arts, of architecture, or of industrial design. Th e y
may be awarded in special circumstances for courses of
undergraduate study.
The attention of t h o s e seeking initial or advanced
training as teachers is called to the Commonwealth Teach-
er Training Bursary Scheme undr which awards are made
in Britain by the Commonwea'th Bursary U n i t in the
Ministry of Education.
TENURE. A Fcholarship is tenable for a programme of
study or research normally extending oDer a period of two
academic years and leading to a university degree or simi-
lar qualification. An award may however be made for
one academic year only. The letter of award will specify
the period, as well as the course, for which the scholaishio
is available. Scholars may a p p ly for an extension cf
tenure of their awards; but the number of scholarships ten-
able atany one time is limited, and it dogs not,folloy that
an application for extension will necessarily be successful.
ELIGIBILITY. Candidates must normally be Common-
w e a 't h citizens pr British' protected persons who'are or,

uates bf a university o r college in their country or holders
of ai'qiqtivalent qualification. Applications will also be
considered from such persons without a degree or similar
qualifications who wish to take a first course of study in
Britain, provided they are normally resident in a country
where no university or college offers courses in the subjects
of their choice. The Scholarships are open only to per-
sons who are normally resident in countries of the Com-
monwealth other than the United Kingdom. Applica-
tions will not be considered unless they are made through
the appropriate agency (as named below) in the country
of a candidate's normal residence.
AGE LIMITS. Scholarships are open to both men and
women who will not have reached their 35th birthday by
ist October, 1964, but preference will be given to candi-
dates who are between 22 and 28 years of age. In ex-
ceptional circumstances applications may be accepted from
candidates over 35 years of age.
Applications should reach the Education O ffi c e,
Roseau on or before 31st October, 1963. Six copies of
the application must be made on the prescribed fo r m s
which may be obtained from the Education O ffi c e,
For other particulars in connection with the above
scholarships please apply to the Education Officer, Edu-
cation Office, Roseau.

Changes In

The British Government
is to modify the basis on
which immigration vouchers
are i s s u e d to Common-

In a written reply to a
Parliamentary Q u e stio n,
Labour Minister John Hare
stated on Wednesday that in

than one-quarter of the vou-

served, subject to a limit on
the total number of vouchers
being issued.
"During the debate; on the
Commonwealth Immigrants Bill I
undertook to watch how this ar-
rangement worked out in practice,
and to adapt it if it appeared to be
working unfairly.
"It has become clear, in the light
of the very large number of applica-
tions received from India and Pakis-
tan in recent months, that some
modification of first come, first
served, is necessary in order to
maintain a reasonable distribution of
vouchers throughout the Common-
'I am, therefore, putting into
operation the following modifications
to the scheme.
"The issue of vouchers will in
future be subject to the condition
thatno Commonweal th
countryshall receive more
than one-q quarter of the
vouchers available for issue to ap-
plicants without special skills or
jobs to come to. Subject to this
limit it will continue to be on the
basis of first come, first served. The
arrangements for priority for those
with Forces service will continue.

"We have informed all Com-
monwealth governments of our in-
tention to introduce this modifica-
tion and the reasons for it. Vouch-
ers will continue to be issued with-
out delay to applicants who can
show they have special skill or jobs
to come to.
"I shall continue to keep the
arrangements for issue of vouchers .'n

view." (BIS)

Pointe Mulatre

According to a Stock-
holm, Sweden, newspaper,
"the Swedes will get their
own vacation paradise in
Dominica, an island in the
West In d i e s." Our
correspondent states that
lots, some of them with
houses, are being offered for
sale by Mr. Blomquist. In
such case Pointe Mulare
would became a real estate
development area.

As is well known to most growers all Windward Islands bananas
are shipped to the United Kingdom and sold through Geest Industries
Ltd. Gest buys our fruit on a price based on the figure at which the
green fruit is sold to the green ripener in the United Kingdom. This
Price is known as the Green Boat Price and is fixed by Elders & Fyffes
Ltd., who sell fruit from Jamaica and the Cameroons. Normally. prices
are good in the summer and weaker in the winter. This summer a
delegation of the Windward Islands Banana Growers Association was
obliged to join a Jamaica delegation in London to make a complete
investigation of marketing conditions there. Elder & Fyffes had lowered
their Green Boat Price to a point where the Windward Islands Associa-
tion might have had to pay io less per 1b. to growers. On our present
production this would cost the Windwards over a quarter of a million
dollars a month. Geest co-operated fully with the delegation and refused
to lower his price to the green ripeners and so this serious loss was averted.
The high standard of the efficiency of Geest's marketing in the United
Kingdom alone made this possible. In order to restore the Green Boat
Price, Jamaica diverted three ships containing a total of approximately
4,6oo00 tons of bananas, thus relieving the excess of fruit in the hands of
their agent. With good weather prevailing the remainder of the summer
should be normal.
Very important consultations between growers were held with
Jamaica with regard to the regulation of supplies to the United Kingdom
market so as to avoid over supply at any given time. Perhaps the most
vital function performed by the delegation was the exploration into the
possible details of a new formula for the selling of bananas from the
Windward Islands. Concrete information has been obtain-d as to the
form of a new contract which should prove more satisfactory and benefi-
cial to the growers than the present one which ends in July, 1964. A
full report will be made to the islands' boards on this and as indeed on
all other relevant aspects of the delegation's visit to London.
The Windward Islands Banana Growers Association is proposing
to enlarge and run as a separate entity a research scheme so that growers
will be in a position to compete efficiently in the world markets. Details
of this scheme were discussed with the Department of Technical Co-
operation and a further announcement will be made at a later date.

Protect Your Children
Anti-Polio Campaign
The Anti-Polio Campaign now going on irt Dominica is purely a
precautional measure, designed to help the immunity which is already
"built in" ii: many cf the children here. A mild form of polio is ende'
mic in the island and most children get it without their parents or even
the doctors bring aware of it. This gives a natural resistance which
makes Dominica safe for her children. Those children who most need
the vaccine are those no: born in the island and those of the higher,
income groups who are more sheltered. Nevertheless, not every child is
immune and if the disease strikes a child at a later age the illness may be
very severe. A new vaccine similar to the one being used here was only
recently approved in its effects against all three types of polio by the
U. S. Public Health Service. i It is an oral vaccine given in two doses
eight weeks apart and has been 90% effective on test

Gift Free To Commonwealth

This Sabin vaccine is now the
one most frequently used and Great
Britain is discarding f58,000--
worth of the older Salk vaccine
(administered by injection) and
offering it to Commonwealth coun-
tries free (since it has a limited
useful life). It is reported that
Trinidad and Jamaica have accepted
the offer.
For victims of the dead paralysis
it is hoped that a team of scientists
will bring back new life into helpless
limbs. A research team, headed by
Dr. Bruce Kinnier-Wilson at the
Institute of Oithopaedics in Lon-
don, is developing an electronic
box which can pick up the tiny
impulses sent by the brain to activate
the limbs; the signals can then be
amplified and used to work an
artificial limb or other appliance.
__ Measles Conquered
Measles. the number nnf .hi;d
hood disease in the United States
aud a killer in Latin America,
Asia and Africa, has now been
conquered by a vaccine developed
by Dr. John Enders of Harvard
University. Two types are availa-
ble, one a "weakened" live vaccine
and the other a "dead" virus vac-
cine. Large scale tests prove it to
be 98% effective. It is believed
that measles brought by the Spanish
in Colombus' ships killed more
Arawaks in Hispaniola and the
Spanish Main than did the Spaniards
Leprosy Research
A new name for leprosy and a
plan to encourage the testing of
drugs to cu.e the disease were both
agreed upon at a recent conference
of the British Leprosy Association.
The clinical name for leprosy is
"mycobacterial n e u rodermatosis"
and medical practitioners will be
encouraged to use this name.
Serious doubts have been cast by
the researchers of Dr. A.G McD,
Weddell, neurologist and reader in
human anatomy at Oxford Univers-
ity, on the old theory of contagion
in the spread of leprosy. His re,
searches conducted over the last
seven year suggest strongly th a t
many skin diseases including neuro.
dermatitis enter the body through
the stomach and lungs and not, as
previously thought, by skin-to-skin
contact. If this is the case, it is the
view of many leprologists that ''we
have been barking up the wrong
tree and our programme of preven-
tion will have to be entirely altered."

Note, first, that children's books
remain international in their appeal,

second place, note that these child-

course, so easily do the stories move
along and so quietly does the pic-

was golden and the oats still green.

Tiger Retains Title
At Ibadan, Nigeria last Satuday,
Dick Tiger retained his World
Middleweight Crown when the re-
feree stopped his fight with Chal-
lenger Gene Fullmer in the seventh
round. It was a tough fight all the
way with both fighters asking for no
quarters and giving none. Tiger
was in command from the first
rouid and relentlessly pounded his
opponent into submission. Fuilmer
had sustained bad cuts over both
eyes and the referee was forced to
stop the contest. Tiger later declar-
ed that he was ready to defend his
tide against anyone in his class.
This immediately brought a chal-
lenge from the Welterweight Cham-
pion, Emile Griffith of the Virgin
Islands. If this bout materializes,
it could be a classic. Both fighters
are as thought as they come. Grif,
fith will be aiming to emulate Su,
gar Ray Robinson who won the
Middleweight Tittle when he was
Welterweight Champion. Robin-
son also had a crack at the Light-
Heavyweight Title, but lost that
one one a T.K.O.

W. Indies Crush County
Following an impressive victory
over Warwickshire last week, the
West Indies aCuhed Yorkshire by
an innipgs :aid a rIns at Sheffield
on Tuesda-This was sweet revenge
for the defeat handed out to the
touring ncaftby Yorkshire in May.
Yorkshire were ptO in to bat on
a wicket that proved less helpful
to the bowlers than Skipper Hunte
had anticipated. A fine partner-
ship between Boycott (71) and Ric-
hard Hutton (son of Len Hutton)
enabled Yorkshire to compile 260
on the opening day. Hutton scored
West Indies replied with 19 with-
out loss by close of play. Hunte left
early on the second day but Rodrig-
uez and Nurse became associated in
a second wicket partnership which
put on 123. Nurse was out for 77
and Rodriguez was only 7 runs
short of his first century when he
was dismissed. There was a minor
collapse, but Sobers and Allan
stopped the rot. Allan scored,and So,
bears was Ioo not out at close of play.
West Indies declared at 358 for 9.
The start of Yorkshire's and innings
gave no indication of what was to
come. Openers Boycott and
Hampshire put on 31 runs in even
time, but after Boycott was dismiss-
ed by Hall, the gate was open. Grif
fifth captured 5 wickets for 12 runs
in a devastating spell of fast bowling
bringing his total victims on the tour
to 99. Sobers got 3 for z21. Yorkshire
could only muster 96 runs and it was
over by teatime on the third day.
The tourists completed a match
against Northbn pfon yesterday.
Highlight of the first day was
a fine century by the young
Northampton batsman Colin
Milburo, and Griffith's hundredth
wicket of the tour. Griffith be-
came the first West Indies fast
bowler to capture a hundred
wickets since Learie Constantine
did it in 1939. Ramadin and
Valentine both got a hundred

ckets in the 1950 tour, but

Cubans Kidnap Refugees
On British Isle
On a lonely British island to the
North of Cuba. refugees from the
Castro regime waited last week for
a ship from Jamaica to pick them
up and take them to the United
States. Alas, a Cuban ship got
there first and kidnapped all but ten
under the eyes of two watching
U. S. coastguard planes, who were
powerless to help. A British des-
troyer apprised of this invasion of
British territory rushed to the scene
too late since by that time the Cu-
ban ship was outside the three
mile limit. Sharp reactions are
expected from the British Govt.
