We announce with regret the death of Mrs. Veronica Ducreay, of Weirs,
Marigot, on August 23 after a ten-month illness (cancer) at the age of 41.
Of a friendly and quiet disposition, she joined the Reformed Methodist
Church (now the Christian Union Mission) when she married Mr. Jarvis
Though in great pain she gave a ,religious testimony to her loved ones
and friends around her, just before she died, z-citing the following verses:
Strangers and pilgrims here below
This earth, we know, is not our place:
But hasten through the vale of woe,
And, restless to behold Thy face,
Swift to our heavenly country move,
Our everlastng borne above.
We bave 'no abiding city here,
But seek a city out of sight
Thither our steady course we steer
Aspiring to the plains of light,
Jerusalem the saints' abode,
Whose founder is the living God.
Patient the appointed race to run,
This weary world we cast behind;
From strength to strength we travel en,
The new Jerusalem to find:
Our labour this, our only aim,
To find the new Jerusalem.
She then appeared to have lost consciousness, but rallied and said:
"I've Canaan goodly land in view, and realms of endless day there is no
sickness. there .... no pain there .... no night there.... and then
she died.
SThe funeral service was conducted by Rev. Lindsey at the C.U.M.
Church in .Marigot. The large crowds attending gave evidence of the res,
pect in which Mrs. Ducreay was held in the community.
She:lJeves to mourn her departure her husband and two children -
one Francis William being in England, the other, Kareen, attending the
Convent High School--two sisters and a niece.

Cricket In West Indian Culture
By C, L. R. James
(From The "New Society")
Reprinted From The Barbados Beacon
(Concluded from last week)/

Cricket will remain good
when Worrell is using his
own time and his own petrol
to run students to a sports
field that, in his young days,
he'd have walked to without
a thought. But will it ever
be so good again?
No appointment in the
West Indies was ever so
universally and warmly ap,
proved as that of Frank
Worrell as Captain.'
West Indians crowding

whole past history and future
hopes of the islands. In

SAt these schools for many.
years there were some two
hundred boys, children of

Englishmen and local whites,
many sons of the brown
skinned middle c 1 a s s,
Chinese, Indians, and black
boys, often poor, who had
won some of the very few
scholarships to these schools,
and others, not too many,
whose parents could afford
it. These Oxford and Cam/
bridge men taught us Latin
and Greek, mathematics and
English literature. But they
also taught, rather diffused,
what I can only call the Bri,
tish public school code.
The Code
The success of this code
inside the class room was
uncertain. In the playing.
fields, especially the cricket
field, it triumphed. Very
rapidly we learned to "play
with the team" which meant
subordinating your, personal

inclinations and even interests
to the good of the whole.
We kept a "stiff upper lip"
in that we did not complain
about ill fortune. We did
not denounce failures but
"well tried" or "hard luck"
came easily to our lips. We
were generous to opponents
and congratulated them on
victories, even when we knew
they did not deserve them.
We absorbed the same disci,
pline through the innuraera,
ble boys' books.
Generation after generation
of boys of the middle class
went through this training
and experience and took it
into the West Indian world
with them, the world of the
games they continued to play
and the world outside. The
masses of the people paid
little attention to this code
but they knew of it, and one
condition ofrisingato a higher
status in life was obedience
or at least obeisance to it,
Social Passions Expressed
To the degree that cricket
embodied a national consoli,
dation so much needed by
the islands, it could not fail
to express the growing con/
sciou-necss ofsoeinl different,
tiation. Though for a long
time in the West Indies the
value of the services and the
authority in cricket of men
like H. B. G. Austin was
unquestioned, cricket was a
field where the social passions
of the colonials, suppressed
politically, found vigorous if
diluted expression. On the
cricket field all men whatever
their colour or status were
theoretically equal. Clubs
of the lower middle class or
black men who achieved
international status were pas/
s:onately supported by the
mass of the population, and
in return this section seemed
to play with an energy and
fire which indicated that they
were moved by the sense of
being representative which
circumstances h a d thrust
upon them. Members of
various classes gave a normal
support to teams and players
of their own class, though
my personal experience is
that this sharp racial compe,
titiveness very rarely caused
any departure from the high
principles of cricket sports/
manship, and sharpened up
the game.

S is the headline of a lead story from
the Barbados Advocate on the last Regi,
onal' Council of Ministers meeting in
We would refer our readers to a state,
meant by the Liberal Party of Great Bri,
tain reported on page 3. May we also point
out that the Regional Council of Minis,
tets is not a constitutional council with
federal governmental powers, nor has it
any mandate from its unit electorates,
since the elections of the various members
of this secretive body took place during the
lifetime of the Old Federation, without
any reference to an Eastern Caribbean

We have'seen little evidence that any
delegates to this seventh Regional Council
of Seven have taken into account any
representations other than those of their own
ruling Parties. They have not kept the
public informed, and at each successive
meeting they have given out less and less
information, and that always in arrears.
The people MUST KNOW what decis/
ions are being made in their name, in de,
tail and quickly; moreover, they should
be given an immediate opportunity to
express (through public meetings and
local organizations) either confirmation,
amendment or disapproval. It is theit

When Lord Hailes was' Governor,
General of the Federal West Indies, he
and his wife (two of the most hospitable
people alive) were made lavishly, welcome
wherever they passed in these islands;
indeed, some of those who surrounded
them behaved in a sycophantic manner.
When Sir Grantley and Lady Adams
came to Dominica for the first time, they
were cordoned off by possessive proud
characters. Nowadays, some of the very
people who crowded around those per,
sonalities appear to have forgotten their
earlier emotions and behaviour, and even
deny past manifestations of friendship.
For some months before her departure,
Lady Hailes gave exhaustive and loving
attention to a plan for helping the more
unfortunate young of the West Indies.
She founded a Youth Trust Fund and
attracted offers of support not only from
England but from Canada and the Com,
mbnwealth. Broad in its scope and vision,
the West Indies Youth Trust Fund was
intended to help not only infants and very
small children (such as those who have
been the subject of last week's health and
nutrition conference here) but school,
children and teenagers who desperately
need nourishment nnjt only for the body
but for the mind.
It was hardly to be expected that Jama,
ica and Trinidad would have stood by the
Youth Trust Fund ardently after their
Government moved out of the Federation,
although some generous-hearted Trinida-
dians remained firm; but there was some
hope that the small islands would see in
the principles of Lady Hailes' great idea
something to build upon for the future-
something to be clung to at all costs.
Are we so sometimeish after all, we
West Indians? From the start, the

Youth Trust Fund in Dominica was little
favoured by the very people who could
have helped it most. Dominica's Local
Charities Committee preferred its ancient
autonomy and interests. A local Youth
Trust Committee was belatedly set up-
after Lady Hailes had gone back to Britain
- but the work and the impetus were
left to a few already overworked persons.
Probably the lack of a firm project for
Dominica was one source of dwindling
interest in this excellent cause, which had
the advantage of being nonsectarian and
non-sectional. Be that as it may, aside
from a successful though thinly attended
Youth Trust ball, a concert provided by
gallant Martiniquans and the individual
contributions of some good-hearted sup,
porters, the Youth Trust campaign in
Dominica has come up against too many
obstacles of apathy or even obstruction to
be healthy. Meanwhile it is recognized
that a serious predicament faces hundreds
of neglected or disadvantaged adolescents.
The row over "Sparrow village" only
served to underline this: but what alterna,
tive has been suggested? We would pro,
pose co,/odinating the activities of all who
are prepared to serve and to rescue neglected
It should no longer be a secret that the
overhead cost of maintaining Youth
Trust headquarters in Port of Spain was
too heavy to be supported after the richer
islands became uninterested. Everything
is now run on a voluntary basis. Indeed,
the fate of the W. I. Youth Trust Fund as
an organised overall project hangs in the
balance. This is depressing; but the fact
should spur those in Dominica who care
for the citizens of the future to some kind
of concerted effort. Everybody who is

illguided youth should rise to the defence of a worthwhile
youth project, be it local or regional.
We are glad that the British "Save the Children
Fund" is interested in the plight of our malnourished
children. But we mu3t do something on another level
for ourselves. And as we reflect on this, let us pay due
tribute to Lady Hailes, whose hope, trust and expectations
have received so many dashing setbacks, but whose
loving/kindness is still a great example.

I think I know who Bob and
Ray (So They Say) are. I admire
them for their courage. I would
like to say that if we had about
twenty people like Bob and Ray
here, sooner or later Uncle Sam
would be in Dominica to protect
American investment here.
If one looks carefully one will see
that the few prosperous people
here all go in for shops: nobody
goes in for animal rearing or fishing
-too much work and too little pro,

all that trouble. Buying f:ed at
$13.00ooand $5.50o a bag, taking
care of the animal and then to sell
it at the same price as a pound of
codfish is NO JOKE. I used to buy

Sir, After several weeks of holi-
days the Primary Schools have re-
opened with some having new teac-
ers fresh from training. I hope they
will give to the children the best of
what the Universities gave unto them
in the field of Education.
Dominica today is not left out by
not having her teachers trained;
thanks to the Minister of Education
and the British Government which
has consented to enter those men
and women to be trained and return
home to work among us to make
education what it should be: thus
the Universities will always welcome
Dominicans, I wonder if the Edu-
cation Department have made the
right transfers with some of the
teachers? If not please do so, be-
cause it is not wise to send most of
them to remote places where they
will get despondent. If they get
discouraged what is going to hap-
pent Please send them to the right
places ifyou want them to do what
we expect of them.
Today the children need careful
handling, especially in some of the
places where there is more than one
school, and in Portsmouth I am
looking forward to seeing one of the
male teachers at work for the bene-
fit four children.

Re-"Boarded Out

Dear Madam, With reference to
a short letter in the issue of yaur pa'
per for Saturday the 17th August.
Re-"Boarded Out Pupils" by MAMA,
Near Poctsmouth: As a mtner (like
yourself) in one of tne country villag-
es I fed compel to say a f:w words
about the grievances expressed by
ner. I have two girls attending one
of the High Schools in Roseau who
are treated in the same manner and
the environments in the homes they
are staying in are similar. It is not
'because every mother in the country
who has children iS the Grammar
School, the Convent and the We le/
High School in Roseau is nch nin
money; but we are ambitious and
i st trying to help a few of our boys
and girls who are anxious to learn so
that in future they may use their ed-
ucation to serve the Colony and the
world during their day and their ge-
neration. We are bearing some fin-
ancial pressure with the small days
pay we ate getting.whenever we work
on the Estates and on the Govern-
ment roads, and from the sale of our
few bunches of bananas forwhich
by this ime we were hoping to get
60 per tb. It is these fortnightly and
weekly.cash we are receiving which
is so inadequate and embarrassing in
our hands maKes it burdensome for
us to meet with our financial dem,
ands.ard to fulfill our obligations to
uiAty'boys-and-giris m i.osean.
MAMA, Near Portsmouth, I am in
agreement with you in saying that the
conditions with some of our children
existmg at present must be changed;
and, as a Mother who has been giving
your letter my serious consid.radion,
I suggest (I) that toe children who
are in homes where they are getting
the best protection morally and other,
wise should not be removed. (2) Re-
move our girls from the homes where
they are beset with immoral exam-
ples and immoral contact. (3) To
put them in an hostel where they
shall be under the supervision of a
serious mistress who has experience
in: managing the affairs of the hostel
in every way. Our girls should be
encouraged to study their lessons for
school the following day; the head,
of the hostel is to know when our
girls are going for games and what
hour they shall be returning In the
hostel no boys to be allowed to enter
and to gossip with our gir.s etc.
I have herd and many mothers
too, that Miss Inez Emmanuel has
renovated a large building in Roseau
and has equipped it for a hostel
which is good news indeed. A few
of us intends to contact Miss Eman'
uel in Roseau as soon as we can, so
that we can know of all her general
arrangements of her hostel. Thank
you Dear Editor, for the space allow-
ed to me.

ended in disagreement was
expressed by t he British
Minister of State for Foreign

last week.
Mr. Thomas, who led the
delegation of British and
Kenyan Ministers, said in a
radio interview: "I am sorry
that the discussions in Rome
have ended without agree/
ment being reached.
"I made it clear that the
British Government would
not arbitrarily alter the fron,
tiers of Kenya just before its
independence against the
wishes of the Kenya Govern,
"I said that this was pri/
marily an African problem
and could only be settled
satisfactorily and permanently
by the African countries.
"The Somali delegation
refused to accept the offer of
the Kenyan members in my
delegation to resume discuS,
sion at which any matter
affectin- the area could be
rdusc.d .
"We all agreed that a
solution could only be found
through peaceful means and

vernment will agree that the
most hopeful prospect lies

Report On The International Feder-
ation Of Christian Trade Unions
IGFTU Statement
(Cont. from page 5)
At the 4th Congress of CLASC held in Caracas in
November 1962, CLASC tried to give a picture of itself as
the most dynamic and representative trade union force in
Latin America. ORIT was repeatedly attacked in violent
terms. The Congress resolved "to warn and alert all
workers of the continent not to be deceived by ORIT and its
mercenaries". It accused ORIT of obtaining funds from the
Alliance for Progress and repudiated the Alliance for
favouringg only a sector of the workers which is not the
most genuinely representative, that of ORIT." As fir as
contacts with other Latin American trade unions were
concerned, the Congiess resolved that in the case of organ/
isations which do riot meet the requirements outlined,
especially ORIT and CTAL (the WFTU Latin American
organisation, now disbanded), and their national or pro/
fessional bodies these relations should be restricted to a
minimum avoiding all permanent commitments with them.
On the other hand CLASC was committed to calling within
the first six months of 1963, "a trade union conference of
revolutionary and democratic workers of Latin America".
The general Secretary of the Christian International,
A. V. Vanistendael, was present at the Congress and on
his return to Brussels gave a press conference in which,
according to newspaper reports which were not denied, he
made a thorough denunciation of ORIT on the lines of the
resolutions, even going further than these.
The ORIT Executive committee (January 1963) dis-
cussed these attacks and issued a restrained statement rcgrett/
ing the CLAsc anbd Intetnational attacks and exposing the
exploitation by the Christian trade unions of people's rclil
gious feelings. We conveyed this resolution to the
Chri:.::; ernaional. ...

Activities in Asia


"On the cisc side part of the
resistance to chance stems from tihe
long time de factor existence of the or-
ganisation and all the histcr.cal and
emotional loyalties which such an or-
ga lisation develops in the mind f is
adherents and part -erhaps stems from
the inertia ofall organizations and the
natural disinclination of the officials
to put themselves out'of a job. A.
real and I think valid source of ir-
ritation to the ICFTU has been the
efforts of the cisC in Germany to
split the u nity of the trade
union mo v e m e n t and to set
up a separate Christian
Labour Movement, and in countries
such as Italy and Colombia either
to wean away the existing; Christian
oriented union from the ICFTU or
to set up Christian organisarions.
In these countries the cisc seem to
have been guided in part by a sim,
ple bureaucratic desire for expansion.
With regard to Germany the cisc
appeals to have decided from the
beginning that the unified move-
inent w,..uld not and should not
work and in this and in other coun,
triei appears to rush ahead with
slight concern for the attitudes of
Catholic workers in those countries.
On the other hand the failure of the
cisc to secure significant affiliation
in post-war Germany and Italy is
an important sign that neutral trad&
unconism may at last be possible on
the European continent and that the
cisc's own prospect of additional
expansion in the area are dim".
After a summary of the matters
on which ICFTU and the Christian
International have achieved coopear,
tion the author concludes:

"In short, my prognosis
is that political necessities and plain
common sense will dictate ever in-
creasing operationn If same salve
can be fund for cisc pride and the
desire of cIsc affihares to maintain
certain minimum contacts among
themselves, I believe that the ICFTU
will incorporate the cisc within the
next deCade or two."

While having lost, with the
foundation of the ICFTU any reason
for its existance which it may have
had before World War it the
Christian International c-ntmued in
a truncated form and expanded into
French-speaking Africa, Latin A-
merica and one or two countries of
Asia although having few organs,
alion directly carrying out trade un-
ion activities in these areas. It con-
tinues to stress ts connections with
the Catholic Church where it finds
this expedient bnt now has non-
Christians in its :ai ks.
Its aims are basically the same as
those of the tcFcT but it does not
ye: appear to want that unity with
the cFTru which holding of comr
mon objectives would seem to jusutl
fy in a critical world situ; tion. With
its doctrine of pluralism it is in fact
seeking to compete with ICFTU in
various countries of Africa, Asia
and Latin America. As its affili-
atcs with these areas are with one or
two exceptions small or are merely
committees of trade unionists, they
have sometimes te'n able to give the
appearance of bci;;', more militant
than ICFTU affihates which are well-

established and have no doubt deve-
loped a greater senme ot responsibility,.
However the international trade
tri n movement car, take such com-
petition in its stride.
The ICru is still in favour of
avoiding any wasteful competition
among democratic tr a d e union
forces and will continue its contacts
on matters of common interest; but
only when the Christian Intetnation-
al has faced tip to the implications of
such contacts and has ceased its
written and oral propaganda activi-
ties against the ICFTU can real pro,
gress be made.


"Only a powerful and
centrally directed economic
coordination .and interde,
pendence can create the true
foundations of a .nation.
Barbados will not unify with
British Guiana, or Jamaica
with Antigua. They will.
be knit together only through
their common allegiance to a
Central Government. Any,
thing else w i l discredit
the c o n ciep tion :of a.
Federation and in the end
leave the iinds m&ire :divided

Making their debuts in the league,
Empire and Thunderbi.ds did not
make a very good impression. Em-
pire were three men short at the kick-
off and paid the penalty, They found
themselves a goal down when a free-
kick from thirty yards was aHowed to
hit the back of the net. Had Empire's
regular goalkeeper been present, this
goal would not have been scored.
The game steadily deteriorated ;nd
threatened to get worse, but for the
intervention of the referee who at one
stage had some stern words with both
teams. Thunderbirds led 3 2 at
the interval. There was much bet,
ter play in the second half with Hill,
Lartigue and Elwin outstanding for
Empire, while Gage and Leogale de,
fended stoutly for Thunderbirds.

D.C.S. looked exactly what they
were; a team that has not had' time
to practise and train. They lacked
ideas, and were on the whole too slow
for their opponents. S.M.A. were
two goals up when the game was
just 8 minutes old and never looked
back. Their quick tackling and first,
time shooting gave warning to other
sides thattdhe Saints are a team to be
reckoned with this season.

In a one-day match at Hove on
Thursday, Sussex beat the West In-
dies by 4 wickets amidst great excite,
ment. West Indies started badly, los-
ing their first 4 wickets for 9 runs. A
partnership of 104 between Sobers
(64) and Butcher (57) enabled them
to score 177 in 43 overs of the allot,
ed 65. Murray scored 29. Sussex also
made a bad start, but Suttle (40) held
the side together, while big hitting by
Dexter (41) and Parks (37) brought
them within sight of victory which
they acheived with 4 wickets in hand.
The final scores:- W.I. 177; Sussex
