that time the Catholic Church played a strong part in poli-
tics and was bitterly opposed to the continental European
socialist parties, by the side of Christian po icical parties

on a united basis and joined
the ICFTU in its entirety, as
did the whole Italian non-

movement; in both these the
substantial wing of Christian

is with the ICFTU. Thus
the Christian International
lost the support of its two
major pre-war affiliates. It
was hoped that the reman-
ing Christian national centres
would come into the ICTFU
when it was founded but
they were not prepared to
disband their separate inter-
national organisation.
The mainstays of the post-war
Christian International have been
French, Belgian and Netherlands or'
ganisations. After the Saar was trans-
ferred from France to Germany, the
nucleus of Christian trade unionists
there was used, with strong backing
from the Christian International, to
create a new Christian trade union
centre in Germany in 1956. In this
case the Christian International with
little consideration for the views
of the vast majority of German Ca-
tholics and Protestant trade unionists,
tried from outside to split the trade
union movement, not heeding the
danger that such action might revive
the disastrous pre-war antagonisms

Mr. James that only the English and

In recent history, Mr. James gives
the background, the inside and the
very stomach to see Frank Worrell
made captain of the West Indies.
There are admirable studies of Geor-
ge Headley and Learie Constantine
and a carefully drawn picture of
Trinidad social life in the early yetrs
of this century. The book, in other
words, in an important work for a
West Indian interested in his own
country, and not only in its cricket.

James, are all better as exercises of the:
cricket writer's art than "Beyond a
Boundary". But in fact Mr. James
has a purpose connected, not with the
cricket writer's art, but with cricket
as an Art, and a means of social
and cultural expression.
Cricket is important to West
Indians but to none so important as
it is to Mr. James. Referring to two
of the best known social histories
of England in the 19th century,
Mr. James comments "I can no
longer accept the system of values
which could not find in these books
a place for W.G. Grace", for as he
points out, Dr. William Gilbert
Grace, 'the Champion', 'the great
cricketer', was the best known Eng-
lishman of his time and his time
ran for 50 years.
Mr. James' essay 'on "W.G."
is the finest that I have ever read,
and the English critic who said that
he was bored by eulogies of Grace
and by this one, again ought to be
made to read the essay before he
criticises it.
Mr. James' thesis is that "cricket
is an art akin to those of ancient
Greece, which reached the heights
with Grace and may yet, with its
skill, its elegances and its high
ethical code, form the basis of new
moral and educational structures."
I think we can agree with most of
what Mr. James says about the
structural perfection of cricket as a
game, and the particular fundament,
al relat onships and "One and many,
the Individual and the Group"
necessarily involved, as a batsman,
carrying all the hopes of his side and
perhaps of his country, stands up to
face a hostile bowler and field (and,
who knows, umpires as well!) and
do battle on his own before 50,ooo
faceless voices. But I think that

IN THE CABINET
By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter X
A hot dry breeze from the great savannah blew up
the skirts of the most fashionable girls in the West Indies
and fluttered the modish black hair off their brows. It
was the season of bush fires, a rich season for them that
year in Trinidad. To someone standing on the balcony
of a house in Federation Park, three fires were visible at
one time the largest one licking its way t h r o u g h
scrubland to the porch of the American Consul. Flow,
ering shrubs and even trees in its path were scorched to
death. Elsewhere the fizz and crackle of an exploding
clump of bamboos was a fantastic sight and sound.
The local population seemed to take such matters
quite coolly. In Dominica a cry of "fire!" or the lick
of flames would draw a thrilled and anxious crowd; but
here near Port of Spain where the sides of the little hills
were often untenanted and certainly unforested (in our rich
sense of the word,) and where water was scarce few peo,
ple got excited and the firemen went about their routine
business.
At night it was a wonderful sight to see a bush fire; once at sunset
my husband painted a realistic lively vista flames beating up to a tiny
Hindu house with its prayer-flags, one white and red, stiff in the Sirocco
breeze; and the family rushing to drag out the bedstead. It hangs on
our wall today like a scene from an adventure story.
A few years ago I was conducted by a great English writer on a
tour of the Lake District in England. It did not stir the poetry in me
halfas much as was expected, because the mountains were so bare and
craggy. In our little land we have the highest proportion of forest in the
West Indies, a royally magnificent sight. The highest mountains of all
are tipped with what is called even by geographers "elfin woodland '.
Among the clouds of those strange heights, a dense and stunted trte popu,
lation grows in twisted shapes of gnomes, dwarfs, humpbacks and pixies;
they ar: eerily contorted and seem to join hands with each other, huddling
like- ghosts in the damp mist. .Their legs and arms are draped with moss
and lichens. And then what a wonde;--out of the 'moss-brocade

found elsewhere.
To escape by descent from such preposterous tree-creatures is to drop
down steep tracks into the arms of a tropical rain forest, huge statuesque
trees rising to well over a hundred feet in height with leaves the size of
tea-trays; but between the dwarfs and the giants are the montane belts, with
host trees nourishing bromeliads, wild pines and less exotic orchids. It
is not unusual to see a kind host tree supporting one or two bromeliads
which have become larger than itself and seem to be strangling it to
death. Just after I ceased to be a Federal Minister I had occasion to
reflect upon the political symbolim ofthis thing.
One of my unfinished books contains a character who was an unor-
thodox Christian preacher obsessed by the mystical beauty of trees. His
favourite references were to the Tree of Life and he set out for the West
Indian islands on a mission, like so many adventurous missionaries before
him, from Pere Labat onwards. "Be kind to trees, "this Pastor was al,
ways saying, "for they are God's symbols." I never finished the book,
and may well'reveal that the tree-loving preacher was doomed to suffer.

PAG.T FOUR DOMINICA HERALD A


IT is more difficult, but certainly neces/
sary, for t h o s e in authority to be
impartial in a small restricted territory
than in a widespread metropolitan comrn
munity. Foremost among those of whom
absolute impartiality is demanded are
members of the judiciary Judges of
the Bench, Magistrates and those who
administer and enforce the law (including
Police authorities).
When we come to the Colonial Civil
Service, which derives authority f r o m
the state whose head is the Queen, it is
a maxim that the Civil Servant, although
he or she has the vote, must not behave
in a politically-biassed manner. Neither
may. the highest Civil Service author,
ties takes sides socially and give prefer,
ential treatment to those w h o m they
e i t h e r like or trust more than other
acquaintances in any region to which
they maybe assigned. We believe such
persons to be precIdefdy' protocol from
acting tipon gossip or hearsay.
In' Barbados, an argument still pro,
ceeds as to the desirability of a distin-
guished member of the Judicial Comr
mission becoming a Minister without port-
folio politicians are not expected to be
impartial. In England, a Labour M.P.
is raising the question of the political ap-
pointment of the nation's Attorney Gen-
eral, who is nevertheless an advocate and
not a judge or an administrator.
In the past, two special attributes were
anticipated of those who administered H.
M. Government in these islands: AT
LEAST A HIGH STANDARD OF MEDIO/
CRITY ANE AN ABSOLUTE STANDARD
OF IMPARTIALITY. While we are glad that
the former has generally been attained,
and sometimes even surpassed, it is in
regard to the matter of impartiality that
Colonial Administrators have to be
scrupulously careful. And it is in rela,
tion to the same matter that the public,
and its guardian the press, must be parti-
cularly attentive.

Tourists And
Taxis

Dear Madam,
I must tell you a story which you
must pass on to the public and the
Dominica taxi drivers. A girl who
works in the office with me took a
trip up to Jamaica by Federal ship
earlier this year. Going north, she
landed in Roseau and took a taxi
with others from the ship for a trip
which she was told would cost
$8.00. When near the place, the taxi
driver said he had made a mistake
and it was $8.00 American money,
but she kept her head on and refused
to pay more that $8.oo BW!. On
el urnong to oseaul sne went. to (he
Tourist Bureau and was told she was
quite right but it spoilt the island
for her and on her return, she
would not even land there. As you
can imagine her experience will be
told to many other people and the
island may suffer as a consequence.
So do tell the taxi drivers that they
can damage their island quite lot
by doing such things.
It would be a good idea if the
Tourist Bureau made out a list of
the places of interest and sent it to
the ships. In all the islands the
taxi drivers try to overcharge when
ever they think have a chance to do
So.
Yours sincerely,
M.G., SAN FERNANDO,

Manley Wins
"Slander" Suit
Shearer Setles for $16,000


By Wilbert E, Hemming (ANP)
The "lander" suit instituted by
ex premier Norman W Manley,
currently leader of the parliamentary
opposition, against Senator Hugh
L. Shearer, Jamaica Labour Party
member and Leader of Government
Business in the Senate, ended re-
.. j cently in an out-of-court settlement
by Sen. Shearer.
The settlement agreed upon by
SNelson by both sides provided for the pay-
trantferred to ment $16,ooo to Manley, a public
in New York apology through all communication
assistant to the media, and the payment of court
t in charge of costs by the defendant.
The suit had its beginings last
October, when Manley, in his capa-
city as president of the opposition
Peoples National Party, sent out
FOr 1,ooo circular letters soliciting finan,
cial support to carry on'the proper
ce and legitimate work" of the party.
Shortly thereafter, a paid advertise- j,
District 'E" & ment appeared in a Daily Gleaner,
Police leading newspaper in Jamaica, an,
Sons residing noticing a joint meeting of the
fSt. George do Jamaica Labor party (JLP) and the
ice that it our Bustamante Industrial Trade Union
he Magistrate's (BITU) at which some startling dis-
sesu, on Wed- closures of espionage and sabotage
ber 1963 en- would be presented. At the meeting,
iquor Licence, the defendant, Sen. Shearer produced
mises, situated two documents, on which he was
Parish of St. charged with having "sought to place
some sinister interpretation." One of
ly of August, the documents was the circular letter'
and the other was purported to have


been written by a PNP official on
behalf of Manley to a highly placed
civil servant. The latter document,
later publ.shec in the Daily Gleaner,
claimed to affirm the existence of
an elaborate system of espionage and
sabotage involving the Jamaica civil
service and tl-e PNP. In short, the
letter accused Manley of being a
party to the plot and guilty of criminal
conduct under the Official Secrets
Law.
Banister Vivian O. Blake, (who
as a disciple of Manley, has emerged
as the most outstanding lawyer since
Manley's retirement from the Bar)
told the court during pre-trial'hear-
ings that "the plaintiff has been held
in high esteem, both in Jamaica
and abroad, even as far as the newly
iudependei.t nations of Africa."
Manley, he declared, "was many
years the senior of the defendant
Shearer, not alone in terms of age
but, in terms of service to the coun,
try. The defendant is not alone
leader of Government business in the
Senate but, also an officer of the
Bustamante Industrial Trade Union,
and should exercise a sen-c of
responsibility in all matters."
At this stage the Court permitted
Manley to make an address:
"As far as my good name is
concerned and the name of the


officer of the PNP who is implicated
in this fraud, I do not desire to add
anything to what my counsel has
said. I do not believe that any
sensible person not affected with
malice ever believed that I was party
to this wicked allegation . . I
believe the defending: m ade the
statement with the fillest knowledge
that it was false and with a total
disregard to its implications so far as
I am concerned and my Party."


The suit, scheduled to be heard
before Justice Eccleston dnd a spec,
ial jury, did no; go to trial since
Lawyer, Ramon Alberga, represent
ing the defendant, disclosed that Sen.
Shearer did not propose to defend
himself against the action. At this
juncture, a 20-minute adjournment
was ordered upon the application of
the plaintiff's counsel, and the
settlement was arrived at to com-
pensate Manley "for any injury he
had suffered by reason of the action."

20. THE POSITION OF THE CIVIL SERVICE IN THE
AGE OF INDEPENDENCE -- OVERSEAS LEAVE:
The Conference took note of the statements made
by the various delegations and agreed to the ex-
change of information between Governments,
21. THE POSITION OF THE CIVIL SERVICE IN THE
AGE OF INDEPENDENCE TRAINING:
Conference agreed that greater us, should be made
of the facilities of the University of the West Indies
for training in Public Administration and t h a t
in-service training should b,: intensified.
22. CONTINUING ARRANGEMENTS FOR HITHERTO
UNIFIED CURRENCY ISSUE:
It was agreed that Trinidad and Tobago should
communicate its proposals for amendment of the
draft agreement to the Secretary of State for the
Colonies, who would communicate w i t h the
other interested Governments.
23. FEDERAL LOAN AND GUARANTEE FUND:
Conference agreed that negotiations for the immed-
iate reactivation of the Federal Loan and Gua,
rantee Fund should be reopened through diplo-
matic channels with the Government of the Un,
ited States.


Concluded from last issue
The Young Martiniquans
(12 pupils f r o m 10-12
years, two aged 19, and
seven adults), soon occupied
three bedrooms in a mod-
estly-priced hotel, old, cen-
tral and practical, near
Charlotte Street and Inde-
pendence (Marine) Square.
The Manageress, somewhat
astonished at this youth-in-
vasion, was a lady of Indian
descent who earned t h e i r
undying gratitude by her
motherly kindness. Lead-
ers of the party were (as one
mig h t expect) Professor
Lucette, Mile. Delphin, and
her brother. The boys
dosstd down in their sleep-
ing-bags and slept bliss-
fully, w h i I e the teachers


ncr on problems of Trinidad and
Tobago.
Fatima College Responds
After calling upon H.E. Ambas-
sador Beyle of France, the entire
group visited Fatima College, where
Father Pantem and Mr. Julien (tea-
chers) and their French class stud-
ents spoke for a long while with the
Martiniquans. 'The Father Superior
thanked thLm for their courtesy visit,
and thenceforth every evening Faci-
ma students came to the hotel to see
the boys.
Monsieur Lucette was delighted to
meet Miss Umilta Macshine, well-
known school Principal and musi-
cian, whose example had once cau-
sed him to make music his profes-
sion.
As a result of this successful tour,
it has been agreed with interested
persons in Trinidad that an ex-
change of students should take place
next year, with the assistance of the
Prefect of Martinique over transport.
At present all the boys who visi-
ted either Dominica or Trinidad are
busily engaged in writing a full log-
report of their tours. Writer of the
best report will win a free return-trip
to St. Lucia.


Geest Charters

Big changes are taking place in
the fleet of ships operated by the
firm of Geest Industries of Spalding
Lincolnshire, who operate between
the West Indies and British in the
banar.a trade.
Expansion of the trade irs recent
years has led to the company
chartering two bigger vessels, each
capable of carrying 200,000 stems of
bananas, & the set woships will make
their maiden voyages from the port
of Barry in South Wales next year.
Other chartered vessels will operate
from Preston in Lancashire where
the local corporation have obtained
Government sanction

"$0 THEY SAY"--
BY BOB & RAY
Rumour has it that a new "ioo-room hotel" :s to be built near
Hodges between Wesley and Calibishie. The people who told us about
it describe the event as if it is really true, has happened and. in fact, as
if the place were now "open fur L-usiness"! Such wild rumours some-
times have a litle truth in them but why not make it a better :umour and
say one-thousand rooms inste d of one-hundred?
A modern tourist hotel calls for an invctmment of around $30o,ooo per
loom. Not that the actual room costs this much but when the public
rooms, the lobbies, dining rooms, kitchens, etc. art added -o the cost it
is a common way to arrive at the cost of today's hotel to be around
I0cooo per room. Therefore, if you plan a ioo-room hotel, you are
dealing with a sum of something like 3,nmllion dollars. And this muc"
investment is a lot of money on Dominica, if remotely true.
Strange things happen on Dom'nici. This hotel rumour could be a
fact. However, we mink that the story has too many rooms and that
perhaps a ten-ioom hostelery might be more to the point-- and a $300,
ooo investment is welcome too. But it seems before we build hotels for
tourists, we ought to have a great many more tourists come here first.
In other words, if and when the other hotels on Dominica are turning
away guests, then we would see the need for another hotel but until that
time, we feel genuinely sorry for hotel owners and or builders.
As one fellow said to us last week: ''If only one hotel on Dominica
got all the tourist here, he still would not be busy or show a profit i"
And another chap joined in: "We need more than hotel rooms to attract
visitors. What we need is something for tourists to cee and do once they
reach the island. All our unusual tourist attractions like Boiling Lake,
Carib Reserve and Cabrit Fort are quite inaccessible o the average tourist
who will not walk miles through the mud to view these things." We
had to laugh when a third man added: "Well, we can show the tourist
the famous ruins of Roseau's Oid Hospital -- they all must go there to
sign an income tax form, you know!"
Several people til1uding a fellow columnist, have been crusading
for a changed working day: start early, have a long siesta-type lunch
period, and work late when its cooler. We think these people overlook
the point that most of the shops and stores open simply because their
owners haven't anything better to do. They certainly aren't eager for
business and none of them work very hard when they are open for busi-
ness. They want their cool late-afternoon and early-evening hours for ret
and relaxantio. Then, also, the customer is so accustomed to both the
shop hours and the shop's dreamy business methods, it would require
another generation of Roseau.inhabitants to change this easygoing, "whats-
teitshr- system. -
Stand at the corner of King George V Street and Old Street some
afternoon at.five-minutes-to four! The bang, bang, bang of the shutters
closirig will attest to anyone that the store or shop is finished for the day.
Few places remain open for even half-a-minute after four o'clock they
might sell another item and this will cause a great deal of bother since the
cash has all been counted and put away fully fifteen minutes before that!
No, we conclude, the Roseau shops for the most part, are not open for
business. It's simply that the owners must find something to do so they
shop a few hours to releve their boredom. Go after businesses Be
open their ccmFit i ev Change srophouirs Don't be ridiculous. Business
is bad, bad, bad so why !tay upen a nunute longer.
How would it be if each shop staggered lunch-hours so that there
would be a skeleton staff on hand while others go home to eat, and then,
when the larger group returns after lunch, the others go and eat2 In this
way, the selling day would be an hour longer the shop would have
its doors open for business a full hour more each day. Oh, but this
might bring prosperity to some of the shops and it seems that this is
against their rules. Or perhaps it is true then that the owners would
rather close up. go home and eat, than to have a chance to do more
business. Ask some shop-owners about it. We did, and learned that
most would rather close at one for the whole week! So they say.

Lord Snowdon On Television Phone


Her Royal Highness Princess Margaret and her husband, Lord Snowdon,
looked into the future when they used the television telephone during a visit to a
leading British radio and electronic equipment manufacturers recently.
Here Lord Snowdon is pictured after speaking and watching Princess Mar-
garet in another office at the works ofPye Limited, Cambridge, England.
The Pye video telephone is considered the most advanced unit of its kind
in the world today.
Each unit consists of a viewing unit and a desk unit. The former houses a
viewing television screen and a small television camera. The desk unit allows
any other unit to be dialled direct. On receiving a call, the person being called
cannot be viewed until a "receive" button has been pressed. If the person being
dialled is engaged the appropriate one is heard.

FINAL TEST

Charlie Does It Again

Tie 5th and final Test match be-
tween England and the West Indles
began at Kennington Oval, on
Thursday. England left out Titmus
fiom their original twelve, and Edr-
ich replaced Stewart who was suffer-
ing from influenza.
West Indies discarded McMorris
for Rodriguez. England won the
toss and batted first on what was des-
cribed as an easy-paced wicket.
Bolus and Edrich negotiated the fast
bowling of Hall ana Griffith with
little difficulty and scored 37 runs in
the first hour. England seemed set
for a big score when Hall was re,
placed by Sobers. With the score at
59, Sobers claimed the first wicket
when he had Bo!us caught behind
for 33. F,ve runs later, Edrich left
in exactly the same fashion as Bolus
and England were 64 for 2. At lunch
the score stood at 83 for 2. Dexter
and Barrington were still together
when the hundred came up, but at
103, Barrington was magnificently
caught by Sobers at legslip off Gibbs.
At 115, Dexter was caught and
bowled by riffith for 29 and Eng-
land were up against it This brought
the Yorkshiremen Close and Sharpe
together. They started slowly, but
gradually gained confidence. Hall,
Gnffith, Sobers, Gibbs and Wor-
-P1! 111-J A ..w.q ..... A- il--


kept their wicket# intact.) The part-
nership had just equalled the best by
England so far in the series, when
Griffith with the new ball shattered
Close's off stump. Close had scored
49 very valuable runs, and how well
he has batted throughout this series!
Sharpe did not last much longer. At
229, he was caught behind off Char,
lie Griffith for 63, and the gate was
wide open. Parks and Trueman put
on 28 runs before Trueman was
bowled by Griffith for 19. Lock was
dismissed in a peculiar way, He was
hit on the elbow by a short rising ball
fiom Griffith, his bat fell out of his
hands and hit the wicket. Lock had
scored 4. Statham joined Parks but
the pair had added only 6 when Parks
was neatly caught at slip off Griffith
for 19. Hall got his first scalp when
he bowled Statham for 8 and 'Eng,
land were all out for 275,
Charlie Griffith was the hero of
the day getting 6 wickets for 71 runs
He has so far taken 29 wickets in the
series. Sobers 2 for 44, Gibbs i for
50 and Hall I for 71,were the other
wicket-takers. For nine completed
innings, England have so far failed
to reach 300.
Starting their first innings on
Friday morning, the West Indies
had an early shock when Rodriguez
was out for 5, caught by Lock off
Statham. Kanhai came in and
settled into a somewhat u n e a s y
partnership with Hunte to be even-
tually bowled by Lock, who was
making the ball turn well on an
otherwise easypaced wicket; Kanhai
scored 30.
Parks, who had been hit on the
foot by a ball fr o m Griffith on
Thursday spent the morning having
a chcck<4ipin hospital but returned
after lun~h to relieve Brian Close
who had stood in for him with


considerable confidence.
At tea-time the score was 179
for 3, with So b e r s and Butcher
batting confidently, and 13 overs
to go before the new ball. Hunte
had fallen to Shackleton for So,
caught Parks, when the, score stood
at I52 for 3. Butcher was then
run-out for 53 and was rat her
quickly fEllowed by Sobers, run-
out by a magnificent piece of field,
ing by Close 197 for 5.
Worrell then fell b. Statham for
9 (214 for 6) from a ball w h i ch
moved in fast from way outside the
off stump.
At close of p!ay on Friday, the
score was: England 275, Griffith 6
for 71; West Indies 231 for 8.
Night watchmen were Solomon
and Griffith.

on Carnival Monday was speedily
sold out at Government Office, and
a second edition has been prepared.
Opinions on the value of the report
are sharply divided.

Dead Dogs
Last week-end the corpses of
some twenty dead dogs were picked
up on the streets of Roseau by RTC
refuse vans. Disturbed by this event,
the Min. of Labour & Social Services
issued a warning over radio and in
the Dominica Chronicle, suggesting
that this destruction of animals
might be due to poisoning, and
warning dog-owners. Children
were also urged not to play with
street refuse.
