The good u m o ur e d

and Head of the Technical

They would riot be mere "carbon

be presented at the new College of
Arts and Sciences in B a r b a dos
which was an integral p a r t of the
U.W.I. and had received ple ges of
support from all save one territory.
He mentioned the fierce population
pressure and scholastic problems of
Barbados, where 60,000 children are
being educated and where there are
ten grammar schools, tuition being
free -n all Barbadian government se,
condary schools. After referring to
the '4 million dollar contribution
made by his home island to U.W.I.,
h,: desc-iied the new College as a
"iew venture in higher education"
and said that students from Domini-
ca would be welcomed. Another
compulsory course would be one in
the History of Civilisation. The
Minister referred to the breakdown of
intellectual snobbery which would
result from such enhanced
education, and said that the people of
Dominica had "staked their claim"
through the new grammar school
three weeks before a regional Uni-
versity College opens in Barbados.
He ended by delivering the warm
greetings of the Premier and people

Policy Not Fully Decided
Since the study being made was
only a tentative one. Mr. Athans
was unable to give authoritative de-
tails of the scope of the proposed
Development Bank, but it seemed
to him that funds would be main-
ly made available for the private (in-
dustrial) sector of the economy with
the possibility of investment at rates
s'ig itly below current bank rates in
basic "infra-structural developments"
such developments are normally
in the public sector and include
services such as roads, port and har-
bour facilities, airports and com-
munications. The chances for the
Development Bank financing house
building or agricultural loans were
slim, owing to the vast sums requir-
ed usually on long term. It would
be necessary for a large proportion
of the loans (at any rate at first) to
be on short term so that the prelim-

A brief biography of the Famous Indian Leader whose birth
anniversary falls on October 2.
We people living in the West Indies who have such
a veneration of worldly success and of physical appeal, and
who sometimes forget that time is (I quote)
'indifferent in a week
to a beautiful physique'
may find it hard to understand why a small, thin, plain,
little man as Gandhi appears .in his later photograph,
without a blade of hair on his head, and hardly a tooth,
wearing a common pair of glasses, and not dressed, in any
style of sartorial elegance, in fact, hardly dressed at all ac,
cording to West Indian standards, should have become so
famous, so esteemed aid so venerated. But we are begin/
ing to realise that time is on Bapuji's side, since he is what
may be termed a modern saint.
Mohandas Gandhi was a Hindu horn at Porbandar,
and he descrides himself quite frankly as an experimenter;
in fact, his autobiography from which I have drawn a great
deal of my knowledge ol his life bears the subtitle: "My
Experirrents with Truth." Sometimes in this book he
tells of matters which he describes as 'bitter draughts, nima,
ters painful to relate.' One of these painful records iis his
marriage at the age of 13 child marriage being a tradi-
tional pattern in the region of his birth. Mahatma congra/
tulates youngsters of that age who have escaped his early
fate, adding: "I can see no moral argument in favour of
such a preposterous early marriage." He says, "Little did
I dream then that I should severely criticise my father for
having married me as a child. Everything on that day
seemed to me right and proper and pleasing. Two inno/
cent.children allunwittinelv hurled themselves into the
ocanf of life."
After a while this young married pair, Gandhi and
Kasturba the child wife, were at odds with' each other.
She went her own way although he tried to impose restrict/
t ion on her. Meanwhile the poor boy was going to school,
but his wife was illiterate. Gandhi also admits that he
was passionately fond of her from. the first despite their
palpable differences. Speaking of his school days, he de,
clares that he was not regarded as a. dunce at the high
school. He never took any exercise because he disliked
sports, but afterwards admits that this was probably a
wrong attitude. Another admission Bapuji made in his
autobiography was that he neglected his handwriting, and
he truly declared that 'good handwriting is a necessary part
of education' adding that children should first be taught
the art of drawing before knowing how to write.
An Indian boy of his generation and epoch had alko
to struggle with several languages or dialects in the course of
education, and Gandhi w ites in his book "He who
would leirn good Urdu must learn Persian and Arabic,
as one who would learn good Gujarati, Hindi, Bengali, or
Marathi must learn Sanskrit. "It may be of passing interest
to note that Gandhi was able to write with both hands.
In another 16 years the world will be celebrating the
iooth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. He
had hoped to live to the great age of 125 years. But I
never even had a glimpse of this great man whose life came
to a tragic close in 1948. The nearest human approach I
ever made to him was indirect. On a certain day in 1958
a disciple and friend of Gandhiji, Shri Kaka Kalelka
Saheb, called upon me in my temporary Federal Office
soon after .he Federal inauguration. He was accompanied
by his Secretary, Miss Nanavati. I found myself in imme,
diate sympathy with these gentle new friends. From this
close associate of Gandhi's I learned the following delight-
ful fact Shri Kaka Kalelka Saheb says: "Just as Bapuji
had to deal with public problems of national importance,
so also did he have to deal with the private and domestic
problems of his countless friends. I should not be sur-
prised if he was ever more successful in solving such deli/
cate private problems than he was in solving public ones,
and to my mind, the national service that he was able tc
perform though such delicate work was even more impor-
than his public activities."
I spoke ofthc.influ'nce which Candhi has had upon world society.
a;:d ot course the greatest power he has manifested in his advocacy of
AHIMSA or Non-Violence. You may not be surprised to learn that he had
hardly written one sheet of his autobiography when riots broke out in
Bombay and the work remained at a standstill; then followed a series of
events which culminated in his imprisonment. All through these hateful
and violent happenings Mahatmi Gandhi firmly declared, "India can
save the world by AIIMSA." He was afterwards a State guest of the
Br:tish Government in one prison or another.
And what exactly is this doctrine of Ahimsa with which the world
reputation ofGanhiji will always be associated? It has been described as
nonviolence, nonhurting, non-injnry, nonkilling of all forms of life;
and sometimes in short as love.
The lessons of Gandhi's teaching for the West Indies are many. There
are those in this territory who piy lip-se'vice to gentleness but commit
acts of violence, chopping and cutting: each other; and others who are
total strangers to his doc rine of sacrifice, austerity and public service.
The question asked by most people today is : "What's in it for me?"
Speaking of woman, Mahatma Gandhi who called Purdah 'barbarian,'
said once "I have regarded woman as an incarnation of tolerance." IHe
also wrote in his autobiography, "I realized that the wife is not the bus,
band's bondslave, but his companion and his helpmate, and an equal
partner in all his joys and sorrows as free as the husband to choose
her own path." "Iam uncompromising in the matter of women's rights'
he said later. "Women must have votes and equal status."
Early in his litfestory Ga n d h i a d mi t s with painful
frankness of stealing, and of how he nearly committed suicide during
youth, of his struggles with the flesh before he arrived in middle life, at
the practice f Brahmacharya, about which h one: write: "it is certain
that the mind is the principal thing," He proved to the restless selfish
world that a modern Indian could sacrifice virtually all comforts and live
with austere simplicity for the sake of a cause.

Asian Girls During Freedom From Hunger Campaign
When he was sixteen his father
died. At that tune his child wife
was expecting a baby. Heavy and
grave events for a teen-ager! After
passing his matriculation he received
his mother's blessing to go to Eng-
land and study law, This began a
new and bewildering chapter of
existence; the simple Hindu boy
became a regular dandy and had a
lot of trouble adapting himself to the
E.,glish diet, which he conquered by
his insistence on vegetarianism, reject-
ing wine and meat on religious
grounds. He studied keenly. Pho-
tographs of Mahatma Gandhi at
this time reveal a slender dandy
wearing ieegant suits and a wing
collar with well-tied cravat. His
clothing, unlike his eating habits,
underwent several radical changes
during his lifetime, becoming reduc-
ed at lastzto the perfect minimum.
After he had obtained his legal
qualification, Gandhi returned home
to India, but not fo: long. He had
read Roman law in Latin, inciden-
tally. His attempts in his own
locality were abortive, and how he
started hfe as a Barrister in Bombay
is told by him with a touch of
humour, in his autobiography. He
says there 'I found the barrister's
profession a bad job much show
and little knowledge." Shortly after-
wards we learn of how he courted
an insult from a British Officer in
an attempt to help his brother, and
bow as he said, "this shock changed
the course, 6f my life.": Most of his
work would have been in the arro-
gant Officer's court, so Gandhi
regarded his professional future in
that atmosphere as hopeless, and left
for South Africa, of which he said:
"I found myself in South Africa."
He had been engaged by a firm at
a salary of0o3 a year with expen-
ses paid. He was now father of
two children, and it grieved him to
part from them and from his wife
temporarily. After a hazardous
journey he arrived in! Natiil, where,
he was know by the ignorant popu-
lation as a "coolie barrister". He
insisted upon wearing his turbanin
court for patriotic reasons, and this
caused considerable correspondence
in the newspapers.
In South Africa he had trouble
.o find lodgings, but very soon he
had made his first public speech.
The hardships of the Indian Set-
tlers in Souih Afiica preoccupied
him greatly. He advised all his
listeners, by the way, to learn Eng-
lish. Chapter 13 of Gandhiji's
autobiography is called "What it is
to be a Cooic."
During a harmless walk in South
Africa Gandhi was pushed and
kicked from the sidewalk into the
street. He commented mildly,
"Why should I unnecessarily court
another kick? 1 therefore selected a
I should mention here Gandhiji's
respect and love for the peerless poet
Rabindranath Tagore, who he cal-
led Girudev (Guide), drawing
sustained inspiration from his poems.
It may seen strange -to rfect that
one time Gandhi was a successful
barrister. He says in 'his joking
way, "I was confirmed in my coan
viction that it was not impossible

of the United States, most of whom were

Rev. Martin Luther King, Baptist Minis/

God and the rights of man. Suddenly a
murderous bombexplosion ripped the
building apart, tearing to pieces the life
which pulsed through the dark bodies of
four little girls. The innocents of Ala,
bama were murdered as they played.
Chunks of concrete and rocks flew

(Cont. from page 3)
"Many people are keen on having decent fly-proof and water-proof
latrines. But the general health of the community is impaired if the re-
maining householders believe "weil, my parents did without latrines and
they lived to a good old age. So I am not going to bother when there
are other things to worry about". Soon not only a member of that fam-
ily is terribly sick and in pain, but someone in another family becomes a
victim of dysentery through the carelessness of the former household "
One of the sad things that was commented upon was the fact that
so many children who had been in the hospital or Infant Jesus Clinic for
malnutrition returned again in the same condi ion after a lapse of a few
months. To obviate this a follow-up system (using voluntary aid) was
suggested and also better cooperation between the various nursing groups
on the island. Nurses in rural areas complained of inadequate transport
facilities and the conference.urged that every possible effort be made to
provide transport (and quarters) for these nurses. It was also voted that,
subject to financial considerations, such a staff conference be held every
The conference also supported the training of a nurse in pediatrics
at the UCH Jamaica, the provision of UNICEF milk for hospitals and
children on- discharge, the publicising of the value of skimmed milk and
the insistence to all mothers that "BREAST IS BEST."
This latter co-incides with the views of our medical correspondent
who not only has written in the HERALD on the latter subject but also
states that many unnecessary deaths in infants from acute diarrhoea occur
due to dehydration since in their ignorance poor mothers deprive the ailing
child of water instead of giving it a copious supply of clean boiled water.
"SO THEY SAY"--
BY BOB & RAY
Today is Equinox Day when the sun is directly over the Equator at
noon and the day and the night ard of equal length all over the globe. It
is also the time of the year when West Indian Hurricanes are historically
at their worst. Most of the meanest storms occur around Equinox Day...

To those'people scoffirig at progress and saying Dominica is poorer
than ever, we refer them to the registration number of vehicles now rolling
about the island. We have passed the number 16oo! And if one will
recall but two years ago when the Castle Bruce road was opened, the
number tag on the newest vehicle was a mere 11oo. Does this mean 5oo

vehicles are included in the numbering system. But it does mean

But even as Dominica progresses with bananas, dollar income, more
vehicles, better roads, (poorer telephone service!), we are falling behind
with education for the future Dominicans. Those boys and girls who in
a matter of Io or 15 years will be the "back-bone" of Dominica, are not
getting the advantages of education in keeping with the progress and
growth of ibe island in other departments. And this is not a good thing
because ignorance makes poverty and poverty fights with progress. So
many children drop-out of school and their parents condone it: "I have
the age now," the say. They mean they are I5 and if they continue in
schoolthe teacher will not call on them by name!
These children who "have the age" are never told "but not the
brains" and they honestly believe there is no more education for them to get
once they reach 15. 'But the Caribbean Year Book says that Dominica
has law requiring children to attend school until they 16. When we
discussed this with a high-ranking government official the other day, he
said: "the children cannot learn any more from the schools we have avai-
lable for them. There is no reason to compel a boy or girl to attend
school when we ourselves cannot teach them." And in this we must
The real nut of of the problems, then seems to be in school teachers
rather than in school children or pupils. It is a slow process to build a
supply of school teachers and then the quality of these teachers is in ques-
tion since we are unable to give modern teacher-training techniques. Outv
side sources for this type of aid are UN and America's Peace Corps. It
is difficult to determine if our educational department is working on this
problem. They seem loathe to answer direct questions.
Perhaps you've noticed a rather dignified, grey-haired lady walking
about the streets of Rosean lately accompanied by a younger woman? Well,
that is Mrs. Pressler and her daughter from America. Soon her son
and her daughter-in-law will arrive on Dominica not as tourists but
as new-comers" and we will see more of them. Mrs. Pressler, the
elder, said, pointing at the view to the cast from Roseau: "Nowhere is
there such unspoiled beauty as you find on Dominica. My son, Charles,
and all of us visited every island in the West Indies and picked out
Dominica as it is the prettiest and nicest of the lot!"
This may come as news to many Dominicans who have never been
away from their island. But ask those who' have travelled abroad in the
world and they'll tell you the same thing that so impresses the Presslers:
Dominica's outstanding beauty.
Don't you think its up to each one of us, then, to try and keep
Dominica beautiful Will someone high-up in government (maybe C.M.
LeBlanc himself) please take a look at the junk pile of old cars and lorrys
on the bay front near Fond Cole?

PAGE TWELVE DOMINICA HERALD
Children's (Factual Test) Corner
Dear Girls and Boys,
Welcome back to school. I suppose by next week Monday,
every-one will be back.a; work. I hope that everyone spent a pleasant
holiday. It will take a little wnile before you get into the swing of lessons
again but gradually you will scatle down.
For the first time, we start a new school year in September. We
have followed the example of other places. We had tj, to enable those
whr have finished school here and have to putru: studied
abroad, to do so immediately, instead of waiting here a whole year again.
Perhaps some of you spent your holidays away from home with
friends. Did you remember to write them a little letter thanking them
for their hospitality and kindness to you? If you have net done so, please
do so immediately. You should always show or express your gratitude
for any kindness shown you. Besides, it is a form of good manners.
The boys of the Dominica Grammar School will move into their
new building next week. The Convent h-,igh School too had new wings
added to their buildings and these are already in use. It is nice to attend
school in beautiful buildings, but the building is not always that important.
The children who occupy those buildings aie more important. It might
interest you to know that many great men attended school in very humble
buildings. I hope that those of you who attend school in such beautiful
surroundings will realize how fortunate you are, and make good use of the
wonderful opportunities which you have.
It is the first time too, in the history of education in Dominica that
schools, both secondary and primary, have so many trained teachers. Are
you girls and boys going to give these teachers a chance to help you get
an education. The first thing you have to learn is discipline. Unless there
is discipline in a school very little progress can be made. So to enable your
teachers to give you of their best, you must obey the rules of the school.
Your parents too must help the teachers -- they can help you in
your homework. Too many parents never visit the school unless there is
a complaint to,.be made or when the term's results make then aware of the
fact that Little Tommy has been wasting his time at school.
Well, here's wishing everyone a successful 1964 school year.

It is difficult to understand why the
West Indies Board continually treats
us as Cinderellas. Why should we
not be included in this annual com-
petition' It is only by competing in
the highest class that we can ever hope
to attain the best standards. If the
M.C.C had meeted out the treat-
ment after 1928 to the West Indies,
would we today, be able to bear
England in their own backyard:
The First Test Series
An extract from the 1929 Tit,
Bits Year Book reads: "The novelty
of the season was the...West
Indian team ....promoted to first-class
Test March status. From the point
of view of results their performances
did not reach the expected standard,
but they were popular wherever they
played, and probably gave us as
good an exhibition of fast bowling
as we have seen since Gregory and
Macdonald were so successful with
Armstrong's side in 1921. England
won the first Test Match at Lord's
by an innings and 58 runs; the se-
cond at Manchester by an innings
& 30 runs, and the third, at the Oval,
by an innings and 71 runs. The
Test Match averages show that, man
for man, the colonials were no match
So What About Us?
The Leeward and Windward Is,
lands are in exactly the same posi,
don in West Indies cricket to-day,
as West Indies were in internation-
al cricket in 1928. As a matter of
fact England were far superior to
them then, than any ofthe 'Big Four'
are to the smaller islands now. I de,
fy any of the "Big Four" to beat a
Windward Islands Team by an in,
nings in three consecutive matches.
Members of the Board will, of
course, say that it is a question of
expenses. This is a poor excuse. A
well organized tour of Antigua, St.
Kitts, Grenada, St. Vincent or Do-
minica can never end in financial
. failure, weather permitting. In any
event, what could the loss of a cou,
ple hundred dollars mean to the
Board, with successful tours of Aus-
tralia and England behind them?

This week we pay special tribute to EDWARD JARVIS who hasi
been the most consistent producer in the Roseau Area, and also the
man who sells 50 copies of the Herald in just about two hours.-
Good show Eddie! Newsboys; Franklyn Shillingford, Edward Olive.l
Reynald Delauney, Lennox Daily, and Edward Hill assured me that
they are planning a terrific campaign and they would be a serious
threat for that DRESS SHIRT from the RELIANCE DRESS SHOP. All1
Ithe best boys, and remember.
S ',Where willingness is great obstacles prove small" Finally, I
Lam happy to announce that the following agents, Ernest Mills, Marion
Phillip, E. V, Prosper and R. P. Joseph, according to statistics, all
deserve special congratulations -- Splendid.
I am looking forward to greater production and the building of
& a larger circulation with your assistance. Fellas, let's go all out for
3000 copies before December.
"Together we Aspire,
Together we Achieve" I know I can count on that.
