PUBLIC MISCHIEF CARNIVAL CASE


Ena Joseph For High Court
N THE TINY Magistrate's Court which once displayed
stuffed birds and Carib implements during its museum
days, another scene in the carnival fire drama was enacted.
Main character Ena Joseph, in her wellworn white two,
piece and familiar offwhite hat with pink ribbon perched
backwards, occupied the dock, while a stream of 15 wit/
nesses, during a today session, recounted her random
words.


Eddie's Mcther
.. Among these was the
mourning mother of fire,
victim Eddie Martin, to
whose home Ena came on
carnival Tuesday, saying:
"I saw who did it a tall
redskin man whose name I
do no't know. He was
dessed like'a Mexican, I
would be able to identify
him if I see him again". Mr.
J .B. Yankey heard this re/.
mark Mrs. Martin b ore
witless that Ena haddeclar-
ed, "I saw the person hold,
ing onto the back of Eddie's
costume..." describing how
she had been "shoved twice"
and how she fell. Several
others who overheard Ena's
reiterations at one time or
another came forward to
make statements.
"I Know Who Did It"
Mrs. Noreen Shillingford,
Doctor's wife, was at her
mother's home (Ideline John,
son's) between 3 and 4 p.m.
on carnival Monday. The
accused cried out: "The boys
were innocent. They should
not have done that. I know
who and I will say." Ena
was then hysterical. Edward
Green, Edward La Bassiere
and later Maria Vidal corro,
borated that Ena had spoken
similar words. Nurse Cyn,
thia Casimir, who was in the
casualty ward of Princess
Margaret Hospital, heard Ena
say she saw the person who
burnt Eddie and that she
would tell. Mrs, Casimir
met Ena the following day
at Mr. Deverill Lawrence's
house, and clearly heard her
speak of a man with a ciga,
rette lighter in his hand. "He
is a tall fellow, and if I see
him I could point him out.'
Clayton Shillingford was
among those listening.

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1963


"SO THEY SA Y"--
BY BOB & RAY
Recently we described how the lifting of the price ceiling law Oil
fresh fish would result in a greater supply of the desired food, A IHE ALD
reader wrote a letter (published last Saturday) saying, im effect, that we
were all wrong: that enforcement of the price ceiling law would bring the
desired result .. more fresh fish!
Lest other readers are under this same misconception, let us explain
the age old law of Supply & Demand. To begin, the ceiling price on
fresh fish is 40o per pound. It is not clear whether this means 400 per
pound of red fish, jacks or mackr.rel but supposedly its on "all fish". a-g-
ain, it is not clear whether this 400 ceiling price means a '-pound of edible
fish flesh" or whether it includes the head, tail and entrails of the fish. but
suffice it to say, we have heard the police (in Portsmouth) warn a fish,
peddler to stop selling fish at 5o0 a pound "or go to gaol". The chaF was
selling all types of fish at the time, whole, uncleaned, ''guts and all" .
and doing a very brisk business at it too.
So the law, one might say, is enforced now. At least, it is well-known
enough by the purveyors of fish so that if you ofer a price of 400 per
pound, you will not get the fish (if they have any in the first place) and
most fish are sold at "so-much per fish, depending on the size" of course,
jacks are-sold in multiples of: ''6 for 25"' depending, again, on the size
of the jacks". But have you ever seen the seller actually weigh out the
fi s h Only in the government fish store . which is "pah nee
posson" most of the time.
Therefore "enforcement'' of the price ceiiing law is not going to pro-
duce more fish. In fact, stricter enforcement of the law will scare the fish
we do get right off the market entirely! No, dear reader, the way for you
and all of us to be able to enjoy good, nutricious, tasty fresh fish is for our
"protective" government, to stop trying to protect us and to eradicate the
ceiling price law entirely. Overnight we would have an abundance of fish.
And do you know what that means? Well, we'll tell you, it means:
lower prices! Yes, Sir and Yes, Madame. With no price law on fish, pco-
pie would go out and catch fish hoping to make
big c a t c h and sell at high prices. But (and we've seen this
happen dozens of times elsewheer) so many people go out with this idea
to make a lot of money, quick, and they flood ti:e market. We wonld
then, as consumers, have a wide selection of fish offered to uis ard
at attractive prices. Then, do you know what would happen next?
Well, some of the more enterprising fishermen would start to clean their
fish, scale them, cut them in "steaks" and to keep them on ice (so they
retain their delicate flavor) and we would soop have other places called fish
stores" where people cain go and shop and buy good, clean, fresh fish, of
'i varineneu', anidatilov0.,',conpetlve prices. _
Thatsi'what will happen if aid when tHe' Legco ever wakes up
long enough to remove the ceiling-price law on fresh fish. And, further,
more, while Legco is about'the long-over-due task, they had better re,
move the ceiling-price law governing the sale of fresh pork. Otherwise
we will have some of our children born, live and die on Dominica with,
out ever having tasted either beef or pork!
This column has devoted much time and space to the subject of
the ceiling-price on these fresh meats but seldom has anyone ever advanced
the economic side of the problem: that is, can anyone raise beef or pork
and sell it under the ceiling price and come out at a profit We saw
something about raising pigs on green bananas and coconut mash once
but the distinguished author didn't bother to mention the cost of the ori,
ginal stock. If you feed pigs on thrse two things, he said, you could do
so at a profit. We are inclined to agree with him provided (a) someone
gave you the pigs to start off with and (b) someone built you the cement
pig houses for you for nothing! And, oh, yes, there is a third point: if
someone will tend the pigs, night and morning, for you at no charge!
In other words, an animal doesn't cost only what it eats. There ar,'
many other expenses that must be counted in. For example: what if half
your p.gs die. Does Government take pity on you and allow you to sell
the remainder at double the ceiling price? No! So to be quite honest
about it, Dominicans like to make a profit.-- hence no pigs, no beef, no
fish! So they say.

selves justified in intervening
and uniting them compul/
sorily.
A new example of Christ,
ian tactics in Aftica has oc,
curred in Nigeria. The In,,
ternational Federation of
Christian Trade Unions has
for years had a representative
in Nigeria, N. Anunobi
General Secretary of many
small unions in Lagos. Up
to 1962 these unions how,
ever belonged to our affiliated
organisation i n Nigeria
which was then the Trade
Union Congress (Nigeria).
During the unity negotiations
in 1962 between the TUC(N)
and the Nigerians Trade
Union Congress (ATUC) led
by M. Imoudu, Anunobi
came .nto opposition to the
Tuc(N) leadership and made
contacts with the group
round Imoudu favourable
to the communists.
Anunobi was isolated but later
managed to obtain ILO subsidies and
organized a Seminar under the flag
of th' Pan African Workers Con-
gress irom a-21t D:ecemoer 19oz.
lIn the invitation which went toa',l
trade union centres in English;
speaking Africa, thle impression was
given that the Seminar was a neutral
undertaking arranged by the Inter-
national Labour Organisation.
However from the trade union side
the lecturers were top officer: of the
Christian In ernational from Europe.
Leading members of our affiliated
organizations from the whole cfA-
frica took part in response to the
invitation which in part were dis-


tributed through the various nation,
al ministries of Labour. Our region-
al organisation informed us in good
time about this manoeuvre and the
secretariat made an oral protest to
the permanent section of the Inter,
nanonal Labour organisation in
Geneva against this misuse of the
name of the ILO. This protest was
accepted as well-founded.
The seminar was clearly the point
of departure for the foundation of a
new trade uuion centre in Nigeria,
the Nigerian Workers Council.
This was actually founded on 22
December 1962, The new organisa-
tion is affiliated to the Pan African
Workers Congress and the Christian
International. Some e elements
which were discredited by their
opportunist attitude in 1962 (among
others N, Chikwura, formerly
TUCN Assistant General Secretary)
took part in the foundation. The
latter was appointed President of the
new organisation E.N. Ikongwu,
also a former member of the
TUC(N) became General Secret,
ary.
This new organisation which
meanwhile has set up an office also
in the Northern region of Nigeria
only adds to the confusion of Nige,
rian labor. Neither political not
trade union grounds justify this new


organisation whose origin is due to
the personal ambitions of a few
Nigerian trade union leaders, Just as
as in the case of Germany the
Christian International intervened
from cutside in order to engineer a
split at a time when the democratic
trade union movement has to face
a'tacks from the pro-communist
movement in Nigeria.
According to the Bulletin of the
Christian International one of its staff
members recently undertook a mis-
s on to Africa making contacts with
trade union kladers in Nigeria, Nort-
hern and Southern Rhodesi., Nyasa-
land, Uganda and Tanganiyka am,
ong others. It is reported that "in
spite of the difficulties which the 'be-
lieving' trade union movement en-
counters in the various countries of
Africa the prospects for our move-
ment are quite favourable."


The question must be asked how
far such intervention helps the wor,
kers in these countries. While they
are busy strugglirg to set up viable
trade unions which can act as their
voice on the manifold problems
confronting them, are they to be inv-
ited to build two sets of trade unions
instead of one, so that these can en-
gage in "pluralistic" competition
with each other? Or is the aim to
have ornly Christian trade unions in
these countries?
Whatever the aim the fact is :hat
the conception of Christian trade
unionism is quite foreign to these
countries. At the most the Christian
International may collect a few diss-
dents onto its side but this will be
of no help to the democratic trade
union cause in these countries nor
even to the Christian International
in the long run.

Cricket In West Indian Culture
By C. L. R. James
(From The "New Society")
Reprinted Fror The Barbados Beacon
All the inhabitants of the British West Ind;an territories are expat-
riates; the islands are so small that it was not difficult for the early in,
vaders to exterminate the native Amerindian populations. Thus language,
labour and economic processes, arts and sciences are moulded on the
European pattern. Cricket has proved itself one of the most easily assimi-
lated, most penetrating and most enduring. By now everybody plays;.even
women's clubs flourish.
Curious Approach
West Indian immigrants are today probably the a:ti6 active cricket,
teis in the United States at d thely ef'.!: inLr ie teans of the most fimns_ _
West Indian, players to play games in New York. Cricket clubs
are proving one of hc most ferti!k means of.integrati'g the West Indians
into British society. The West Indian of all types takes his cricket seri-
ously and plays it that axy, That.is not pritrrarily a question of tem-
perament., Cricket has been a permanent source of serioni matters, social
growth and differentiation, national unny and social awareness.
L. N. Constantine, the famous West Indian player and now High
Commissioner for Trinidad in London, has recently told us that though
his father and an uncle were international cricketers and coached him, he
and h's brothers as childe:n often played with bats made of coconut bran-
ches and balls ofadaptab e fruit. Things are not nearly so rural now.
But it is evidence of the deep roots which cricket has sunk in the West
Indies that it has never been seriously challenged by a game so relatively
inexpensive and simple to organise as soccer.
Its Origin
Cricket in the West Indies seems to owe its origin to the garrisons
there. In The Pickwick Papers (1836) Dickens refers easily to a cricket
match played in the West Indies by two Brkish officers. Trinidad be-
came British only in 1797. yet in 1842, not ten years after the abolition of
slavery, there was a well established Trinidad CC. By 1891 there was an
intercolonial tournament between Barbados, Jamaica and what has now
become British Guiana. In 1894 95 the first Engl sh team, visited
the West Indies.
Social Relations
From its beginning to this day cricket in the West Indies has ex-
pressed with astonishing fidelity the relations uf the Islands. The early
island teams consisted for the most part of Englishmen in the colonies
associated with local whites; and black plebeians who were dignified by
the title of professional bowlers. These bowlers were more ground atten-
dants than professionals in the accepted modern sense. Some of them
had come to the nots where their betters practised, picked up the ball and
bowled sometimes without shors,

THE O'LOUGH


R.CARLEEN O'LOUGHLIN is a brillant
statistician who was seconded for a
while from ucwi (as it then was) to the
late Federal Government of the West In,
dies, until a resounding departmental row
caused her to relinquish that position.
She has therefore had experience of feder,
alism at work, and also performed separ,
ate assignments in individual islands. Al,
though we are not among those who re,
gard every paper issued from Her Majesty's
Stationery Office as sacrosant, (take for ex.
ample the White Paper or: the "Little
Federation") we regard this onewoman
report with the respect due to it and have
given it serious attention.

When we read any official document
the first things we look for are its omis-
sions. For one who admits that in three
months or so she visited 16 islands, Dr.
O'Loug hlin has not missed a great deal.
Although it may not be considered to fall

the writer of this survey had seen fit to
remark on the role of that greatest money,
spender of all Government departments,
through which $41,000,000 o f the
$5i,ooo,ooo she has recommended might
pass -. the Public Works Department.
It is a fact that from the days of the Nor-
way scandal in Dominica onwards more
money has gone down the drain or the
landslide or into the labour payroll through
this department than any other in this is-
land. And as a distinguished member of
a Commission of Inquiry said bluntly to
this editor, it is the easiest of all depart,
ments in which to perpetrate fraud. We
still await publication of that PWD Inquiry
report which the Labour Goverment on
the threshold of office definitely promised
the people of this island at public meet,
ings.

It is one thing, and a very comforting
thing for a theoretician to recommend
large sums of money to be spent on a ter-
ritory: but it is another thing to wonder
whether they will be spent to the best ad,
vantage. Roads and communications,
said the economist author of the survey,
are by far the most pressing needs is this
island: harbour development is essential:
all of these are public works matters -we
hope that the last named specialised work
at least will be put out to contract.

of the economy an omission for an ec,
onomist! Surely any improvement in the
Gross Domestic Product depends to a
great extent on CAPITAL EXPANSION in
this sector. An important inducement
(besides the unmentioned Pioneer Indust.is
Act) would be an incometax allowance
(say 50o%) on expansion re-investment of
income. Another facet which is largely
ignored is the provision of loan capital at
reasonable rates, something that our over-
seas-controlled banks frown upon.

It is not however sufficient to take the
section on Dominica on its own; some of
the most pithy observations come in
Chapter I (Regional Notes), such as "...
the lack of incentive outlets for expendi,
ture is very evident and the choice of lei-
sure rather than work follows limited op,
portunities for spending money". Com-
parisons between the islands are most eff-
ectively made by means of the Statistical
Appendices and, if these reduce humans
to a set of figures, an unusual humanity
for an economist shows through in the
first chapter. Dr. O'Loughlin is to be
congratulated upon producing such a
lucid and stimulating report.

Dissatisfied

Dear Madam, A couple weeks
ago you published a letter condem-
ning any form of federation or ind-
ependence. Our legislators wish to
make believe that we will be further
advanced if we were to form with
them in seeking another pile of dirt
over our grave to show where we are
buried. Ever since the British Go-
vernment started this crazy idea of
getting aid of their colonies I had
foreseen that things were taking a
turn. The date of our Emancipation
passed almost unnoticed, whilst we
are being offered the promised land:
and there we who have not yet been
stripped to the bone will then real-
ise how badly we are being mislead.
(f most of us are descendant of
Africans, why doesn't the British
Government send us back to our
homeland rather than drive us into
this disagreeable thing because the
United Nations wishes everyone to
be freer If we are colonies of Britain
they should be doing what most of


us expect, leading us into freedom
rather than to drive us into another
form of slavery. The people at Bio-
che have something to say but many
in Roseau are whispering, and ifyou
don't believe me, hold a referendum
and you will know!
Yours Truly,
DOMINICAN, New Town.

ion, in its unrelenting effort to foster
and promote interest in better Agri-
cultural techniques and greater pro,
duction, held a successful Agricul-
tural Field Day for the Eastern
District at La Plaine on August 27.
This drew a crowd estimated at
about 300 from the peasant and
farming communities of Calibishie,
Atkinson, the Carib Reserve,
Marigot, Morne Jaune, Riviere
Cyriqtie, and St. Joseph, and esta-

of Demonstrations and tours got
underway as soon as the Honourable
Minister for Trade and Production,
Mr. Ducreay, himself a very keen
farmer, had delivered an address on
the subject of the present-day
emphasis on Agricultural production
in underdeveloped countries. Wel-
coming those who had come long
distances in uncertain weather, he
pleaded for more production
to raise their standard of living and
reduce to a minimum our depen-
dence on imported supplies, which,
he said, served only to raise the
standard of living of the people of
the supplying countries. He cited

Government of Trinidad and Tobago

What Local
Minister Said

To Dominiea Trade
Union

At the request of the General
Secretary of the D.T.U. we print
below the written message sent to
the Union on its eighteen anniver-
sary (March 31, 1963) by the Hon.
W.S. Stevens, Minister of Labour
and Social Servicee.
"I thank the Dominica Trade
Union for inviting me to address its
members on the occasion of its
Eigthteenth Annual Convention.
I deeply regret my inability to attend
but welcome the opportunity to send
all a Message.
Eighteen (18) years is a long time
in human life today, and eighteen
solid construction work in Trade
Unionism should be a lot to look
back upon.
Unionism in Dominica, and in
fact the whole of the West Indies,
has not been altogether happy. This
is not surprising. British Trade Un-
ionism is hardly 140 years old and
its history throughout the nineteenth
century has been a turbulent one.
Trade Unionism aims at putting
the worker's point of view and se-
curing for him through negotiation
better conditions of service from his
employer. That is putting is as
briefly possible


Trade Unionism and the employ-
er should then have as their solid
objective the Golden Rule. Gov-
ernment worker a nd employer
should put themselves in the place
of the other. A sweet reasonab'e-
ness should pervade the atmosphere
of occasions for bargaining in dis-
putes.
It would be an excellent thing if
the worker in presenting his case
should say "Let me first of all put
myself in the place of the employer,"
Of course, to do this the employer
should possess enough industrial
honesty to put all hs cards on the
table. The worker must acknow-
ledge that the employer must operate
at a reasonable profit.
On the other side the employer
should forget for a while that he is
an employer and pretend that he is
a worker. He is in a better posi-
to.i dispassionately. He might ask
himself: "How much can the busi-t
ness or industry pay without jeopar-
dising the concern. What Letter
conditions can be given to workers:"
If both worker and employer
approach the situation in the spiite
described above, there is always a
50 50 chance that Trade Union-
ism will obtain its objectives. Trade
Unionists and employers after all are
human beings, and wi:h une'ffish-
nesv and goodwill there is no need
for the tussles and upheavals which


bedevil good relations on the hand
between Business and Industry.and
Trade Unionism on the other in
the Caribbean area.
One last point: Trade Unions
have nevzr been divorced from poli-
tics. But to-day throughout the
democratic world regardless of the
political party to which you belong
the stage has been reach where all
political parties operate in the WeCl
fare State.
This is as it should be, because
in a Trade Union you can choose
the Paity for which you vote. There
is no need for sharp political divi-
sions as hitherto existed. More and
more Trade Unions are frIed from
th: sanctions and sl ackles that bind
them. In the circumstances they
should not regard themselves as a
race apart. They should should see
life as a two way street: as giving
and taking: as getting a fair days
wage for a fair days work with the
readiness and willingness to iron
out difficulties with employers in a
manner wh ch dces credit and ho-
nour to both sides.
Let me close by congratulating
the Dominica Trade Union on
reaching its eighteen:h anniversary and
hope that the future will see two
things: one, the elimination of bitter-
ness in its own ranks and two, the
improvement in Union press i;e of
industrial and trade relations at all
levels in Dominica."

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1963


We publish below an open letter
from the Political Leader of the
D,U.P.P.

An Open Letter
To Government

The ;959 C.D. & W.
grant comes to an end in
March 1964. It strikes us
of ths D.U.P.P. and we
say so in the fervent hope
that the Government will
take heed, for we believe "it
is better to light a small can,
dle than curse the darkness"
-- that already a well>pre/
pared, integrated programme
should have been submitted
to the Colonial Office for
their consideration.
We are forced to the opin,
ion that this has not
beet done. If it were so
the Government would have
told the public. Not only
that, but we think a careful
plan for the next five years
would require that Govern,
ment should consult various
organizations and groups as
well as solicit the help and
advice of the best available
technicians, say from the
United Nations or even from
the neighboring islands.
In the preparation of the
previous (Ii99-64) Deve-
lopmentr Programme, the lasi
Government, the D.U.PP
Government sent a tear
comprising local Civil Ser,
vice technicians in Agricul,
ture, Education and Housing
and Opposition member N
A.N. Ducreay around the
island, canvassing opinions
of the people of the island
In addition, we sought the
assistance of a Federal Tean
of experts and the result wa:
a sizeable grant for under
taking the many project
which this Governmen
proudly "open" in s u c I
grandiose fashion.
Let us hope that our loca
politicians will not be mo
tivated by their desire to de
corate their bailiwicks b
preparing a plan of pet pro
jects; else the whole concept
of planning and program
ing will have been defeated
A plan presumes an object
ive policy around which va
ious projects in correct sc
quence of priority will fit
It must satisfy the aspiration
of the people and pass th
scrutiny of the experts of th
Colonial Office.
If Colonial Office ca
pick holes in the plan, th
funds made available will b
small and almost certainly ir
adequate. The next Goverr
ment will find itself hamsi
rung by the errors of its pre


decessor; but most important
yet the country will stagnate.
We therefore urge and im,
Flore Government if they
have not vet done so,
to get on with the job, as
already it is late. We ask
they use the O'Loughlin re.-
port as a basis; that they seek
U.N. assistance immediately;
and that they lay down a poll
cy and leave the preparation of
a plan to those who are comr,
petent. T he greater the
standing of those who pre,
pare the plan the more comr
plete and better reasoned will
it be and t he greater the
chances of its success.
The time is not far distant
when C.D. & W. funds
will no longer be available
and we shall have to carry
on with development on our own
and with the resources which these
last few plans will have developed
and provided. The future ofthe coun-.
try may well depend on how
this government resolves it.
VERB. SAP.
Your sincerely

SD.G.S. Cadets
. Successful Camp
s Basic Test Passed By 2!
ie The public will have an oppol
tunity to see the Dominica Gram
mar School Cadets' smart turnout o
n September r9th when they parade
ie on the occasion of the official open
)e ing of the New Building of th
1, seventy-year-old Grammar School
The Cadets returned to the island
' Tuesday last week after two week
:t of Military Tra;ning at the St. Ann
, Fort Garrison in Barbados. Of the 3


Cadets who sat the Basic Test at the
end of the training twenty-three
were successful: Sgt. Ronald Chares
came first in the Test with 59 out of
a possible 80 po:nrs and consequent-
ly Lt. Earl Johnson had judged him
best Cadet; Sgt. Major. Julien
Johnson and C.Q.M.S. Errol
Walker came second with 57 points
each, The Cadets were trained in
Arms & Fort Drill, Weaponry.
Field Craft and Map Reading
Though there were fifteen failures all
the Cadets benefited from the Train-
ing.
Pte. R. Letang who dnly a month
before the selections for the tour were
made, was promoted to Platoon II
came back to Dominica as Lance
Corporal; although not feeling well
he completed a seven mile route
march, fainting immediately after-
wards. Pte K. Alleyne came back
home with a Silver C p donated by
Major Barnfield to the best shot in
the D-ca Cadet Corps. On the
other hand a Sergeant and a Corporal
were demoted.
When one knows of the fine
time which the Barbados Choir
had in Dominica it is really heart-
aching to learn that the Cadets were
largely ignored during their stay
in Barbados.


The Presmont
Case

Reply From Under Sec-
retary Of Saate
Let us admit that,.Government
Secrecy7 has trimphedso far in the
case of John Presrmont, American
deposed from Domimnca on July
lo without a definitive reason being
given, but amid a welter of dem,-
official rumours.
In a personal'letter to Mrs Allfrey,
f-om Nigel Fisher, Parliamentary Un,
derecretay of State for the Colonies,
it is slated that the mater has been
looked into, but the Undersecretary
of State cannot usefully comment
upon it for two reasons. It would
d be contrary to normal United King,
, dom practice (and as far as Mr. Fisher
knows, to the practice in any British
r Colonial Goveenments) to give rea-
Ssons for the deportation of an alien
SIn the second place, the Undersecre-
tary of State has been advised that
This case falls within the field of res.
i ponsibility of the Dominica Govern.
ment and is not therefore a matter ir
which it would be properfor th
, United Kingdom Government t
h, intervene.
The Editor of the Herald is grate
' ful for Mr. Fisher's straightforward
g statement and for his regret that h
Could nor be, more helpful. We pu
blish the information in pursuanc
of our policy to keep the population
of Dominica informed of matters a
public interest.
In the meanwhile, two brief note
Shave been received from the deported
American John Presmont, the first c
S which gave the address of a Radii
r- City broadcasting concern, and th
i- second the address of an Arts Insti
n tute in West 75th Street, New Yorl
le City. Mr. Presmont wrote briefly
i "Wonderful things have happened
ie to me as a result of my expulsion
I. Things which seem tragedy are usu.
d ally fortunate." Printed on the sta,
:s tionery of this second note are th
as words: 'I believe that man will no
8 merely endure: he willprevail'.


Montserrat And Y.C.W, Study
St. Kitts Week Ends


Interest In Cercle
Francais
St. Lucia-born teacher. Vernon
Weekes returned to Montserrat after
a few days holiday in Dominica,
during which he attended the
Y.C.W. final night session, carrying
with him the aims and objects of
the Cercle Francais of Dominica
and some French literature, with the
intention ofrevtalising the newly
formed French Club in Montserrat
A copy of the aims and objects
of our local French Club was also
despatched to Mrs. Mona Rigsby-
James in St. Kitts for the same
purpose.
Meanwhile the President of the
Cercle Francais of Dominica is not
satisfied with the level of of attend-
ance a; Roseau meetings, and has
circularised members with a letter
written in the French language, ask-
ing that greater interest be shown in
the activities of the Cercle. H. H.
Col. Lovelace has responded with a
letter phrased in excellent French
indicating his hope that the Cercle
will persist.

Ssiting the sick or disabled, provi-
Sding equipment such as crutches to

other ways too numerous to men-
tion.


The eighth annual Study Week of
the Dioceson Young Christian

dignity of their employees
and to show a genuine
interest in the workers pro-
blems and direct particular
attention at initiating new

trade unions to work to-
wards the speedy compila-
.ion and publication of a
com prehensive code of

Cricket In West
Indian Culture
(Cntl. fromil pae 2)
good player but there was a sharp
social gap between Englishmen and
white or light skinned members of
the upper Llasses and the plebeians
who bowled so well that they were
somctines given an opportunity to
make a precarious living by the
skill. (In Dickens' match a black
bowler, Quanko Samba, had phy-
ed a Homeric role.) The black
population of those days seemed to
accept the conditions. They wel-
comed the Englishmen uproariously
and even seemed to support them
more than the local side.
Between Igoc and 1939 the de-
velopment of West Indian society
improved the status and condition
of the coloured middle classes with
effective results; in the organisation
of cricket as a national expression,
In addition clubs exclusively white,
with perhaps a few to oured men of
wealth of or distinction the brown
skinned middle class also formed
their own clubs. So did the black
skinned middle class. In time the
black plebeians also formed their
their own.
Division Accepted
These divisions (not always in
every island iron clad) were not on-
ly understood but accepted by play-
ers, and populations alike. All
these clubs played every Saturday in
club competitions and not infreq,
uently a white member of he Le-
'islatve Council or President of


..... .' the Chamber -- F-Commerce would .
be playing amicably for his club a
against another most of whose mem-
bers were black potters, messengers Do
or other members of the lowest so-
cial classes. Cricket was therefore
a means of national consolidation. In
a society very conscious of class and
social differentiation, a heritage of
slavery, it provided a common meet- R
ing ground of all classes without P,
coerion or exhortation from above. C
The Austin Era
English expatriates and their local Exports
associates retained their dominance Total E
in cricket not merely by local press Ex. tc
tige and money but by their services.
The weather clubs of the upper



f


classes usually assumed the re;pon-
sibility of invit ng the MCC teams
and arranged for West Indian teams
to visit England in oo900 and 1906.
The black professiioal players wete
included and by 1928 the West In-
dies were granted Test matches. The
outstanding personality in tl:i
steady advancement of the gime
was a Barhados white inan-H.P.
G. Austin, a fine player and very
successful businessman whose father
had been Bishop cf the West In-
dies.
