Letter From Jugoslavia
The gift of the West Indies to
the world, say the politicians and
sociologists, is the mixture of races
and cultures to be found on the
shores and islands of the Caribbean.
While there is nothing in Europe to
compare quite with the Caribbean
cocktail, Jugoslavia can claim that
within its borders there is a diversity
that no neighbouring state possesses.
She stands at the cross roads be,
tween East and West, and did so
long before her present government
took up its present political position.
Present day Jugoslavia is a federal
state, its republics containing a wide
range of ways of life, from the typi-
cally central European to the orient-
al tempo of Bosnia and Macedoma,
whose capital Skoplje, was devasta-
ted in the recent trrible earthquake.
Until modem Jugoslavia came into
being, in i*ai, its provinces had
been ruled by many conquerors,
each of whom left his work on the
country. -een traces of the Roman
provinces oflltlyna can still be found
indeed, aldng the Adriatic coast,
great amphitheatres, triumphant
arches, and much ot the Emperor
Diocletian's huge palace at Split
stll stand to remind us of past Inpe-
rial glories. Atong that same coast
too can be secn the lion of at. Mark,
carved in many a gate and castle

counies, Jugoslavia has been heavi-

Jugoslav cultures the Turkish influ-
ecce. The south of the country- Bos-
nia, Macedonia even the "heartland"
Serbia, which was the first to free it-
self from foreign donmution in the
nineteenth century-was occupied
for live centuries by the Turks. This
was a time of cruel government, of
inefficient administration, of a people
kept in check by massacre and ela-
borate and odscene tortures. Yet
every Jugoslav enjoys his coffee
in Turkish fashion, many Turkish
dishes are served in homes and re-
sturants, and the old Turkish towns
of Bosnia such as Mostar and Sarajevo
have a peculiar charm, with their
many Mosques and quaint bridges.
But the yoke of Turkish rule had to
be thrown off, and, after a hundred
years of bitter fighting, from 1804 to
1913, the Turks were finally
The northern parts of the
country had meanwhile
found refuge in the Hab,
sburg empire. The rule of
the Christian Apostolic
Emperor was a lighter one
than that of the Ottoman
Sultan. But when freedom
came to the backward south,
the Jugoslavs of the Austrian
Empire wished for their free,
dom from Vienna. It all
culminated in the shots which
were fired at Sarajevo in June

Gavrilo Princip shot the heir

Archduke Franz Ferdinand

come close to their country's
attitude particularly on peace,

Germany supported Austria.
War broke out between those
four powers and France,
which had a treaty of alliance

to crush France, the German
armies thrust through neutral
Belgium, which Great Britain
had sworn to defend. And
thus the first World War
began. The defeat of the

Bellevue Beats St. Joseph
In an exciting mitch at Bellevue
on Sunday, Bellevue beat St. Joseph
by 31 runs. Put in to bat on a live-
ly wicker, Bellevue started badly, los-
ing two wickets in the first three ov-
ers. G. Michael was t6e only bats-
man able to master the bowling.
In an intelligent knock of 46, he
square-cut and hooked anything
short. His innings included 3 sixes
and 5 fours and lasted for 55 min-
utes. Bellevue were all out for 68.
E. Laurent (4 for t9' and R. Hen-
derson (4 for 20) were St. Joseph's
St. Joseph Collapses
St. Joseph were only able to mwt.-
ter 32 runs in their first innings due
mainly to a devastating spell of me,
dium-pace bowling by E. Julius whi
got 5 wickets for 8 runs. J. Lloyd
finished with 3 fo'r 7. Batting a se-
cond time, Bellevue went for quick
runs and skipper R.Peters declared
with the score at 65 for 6, This set
St.Joseph to get o02 runs s inzo
minutes for victory, They made a
valliant attempt to get them, but
were 3 runs short when their last
wicket fell. G. Michael was again
in fine form, this time with the ball.
Hegot 7 wickets for 7 runs.
Thefinal scores:- Bellevue 68 and

A large crowd last SiurdJy saw
Shamrock play their best gim of the
season. S.M.A. went ahead in the
sixteenth minute when a good pass
by A. Colaire found W. Leblanc
unmarked. Th. rest was easy. Sham-.
rock equalized eight minutes later
when a left wing cross was headed
in by Dublin. S. M, A. agiin went
into the lead when a defensive error
allowed Leblanc to score his second
goal of the match. Shamrock had
the better of the mid-field exchanges,
but just when it seemed that S.M.A.
would hold their lead, Shamrock
scored the best goal of the match. A
powerful right wing cross by Pinard
was beautifully headed in by Wil-
kins, giving keeper Roy Williams no
A feature of this game was the fine
spirit in which it was played.
Spartan 0 Combermere 2
Spartan were a beaten side before
this game started. The decision, to
play defenders in the attack and vice
versa could lead to nothing but defeat.
Combermere put on pressure from
the first minute and w e n t ahead
through J. Laroque. Ten minutes
later they were two up when C. La-
roque scored a fine goal. Comber-
mere should have scored at least two
more goals w he n they had the
Spartans defence completely disor-
ganized, but poor finishing robbed

VERSES TO EDITH
There's scarce a cloud to tell the tale
Of yesterday's ferocious gale
That rocked the pillars of my home
And forced some poor the streets to roam.
When mammoth puffs attacked each hill
And left bananas lying still,
Edith. from seventy miles away,
Ripped with her skirts large tiles astray!
We saw roofs take-off for a whirl -
Could you. be harsher, Edith girl :
We'll be more broke from this time on,
With all the oldqyear's weeks to run.
Th&ie with short memories may forget:
Youll' haunt my thoughts for seasons yet.
