KEN McLEAN -- "Champion's Champion"
New World's Champion Bronc Rider

A lean, hard rancher named Ken McLean recently became, at 2,
the new world's champion saddle bronc rider at a meet held in Los An-
geles. California. Now in his second year on ,he rodeo circuit, McLean
was last year's "Rookie ofthE year." He won $14,000, making 'him
fourth high in that department. Evidence of the respect with which he
is held in rodeo circles is the opinion voiced by Casey Tibbs, six times
saddle bronc champion, now retired: "That boy McLean rides a bucking
horse like it oughta be rode."

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26 1963


New British
Cabinet

Lord Home's Struggle Without
Modern Precedent
Lord Home, in his first official
statement after the formation of a
Cabinet (which took many hours)
said that he felt 'full co-operation'
with the Communists would be
possible since they had decided to
relinquish the use of force in pursuit
of their aims, (B. B. C. news).
Referring to Mr. Harold Wilson's
scathing remarks about his ineligibi-
lity for the prime ministership be-
cause he was the Fourteenth Earl,
Lord Home declared that prc-
sumab'y Mr. Wilson was the I. t,
Mr. Wilson, and asked "are we to
say that all men are equal except
Peers, and that only they are exclud-
ed from becoming Prime Ministers:"
Attlee-" Why Not Butler?"
Meanwhile Lord Attlee had
earlier stated "I cannot understand
how the Conservatives could turn
down an able man like Butler in
favour of a complete stranger. It is
a shocking admission of weakness."
George Brown, deputy Labour
leader, declared that Lord Home
'would not stand up to the tough
members of the House of
Commons."
McLeod And Powell Refuse
SThe ne" P. M. saw Mr. Butler
ore he was able to
including this popu-
I* Mr. Maudling
ro Dowmnng
ually Mr. laian
to join the Cabinet
'-"ed his position
as Co-Chairn... .. 'he Conserva-
tive Party. Mr. Eno~,. Powell also
refused to serve under Lord Home.
Press & Radio Unfavourable
B. B. C. Commentator Ronald
Butt said it was the first time in
history that a new P. M. could not
form a Government right away.
(England was without, a Cabinet for
two days). It was the first time the
expression "trying to form a Govern-
ment" was used of a new Prime
Minister. He estimated the choice
efLord Home to be a victory for
the right-wing upper class over the
men of the new class in Conserva-
tism, due to Mr. Macmiilan's deter.
mination to keep Mr. Butler out.
The British press, he said, was


doubtful of the process of selection,
and although it was felt that Con-
servatives would rally around the
new P. M,, the struggle must have
penetrated very d'ep that the country
could be without a Prime Minister
for 24 hours.
The New Cabinet
Lord Home's cabinet will have
22 members and the average age
will be 5r. Mr. R. A Butler takes
the post of Foreign Secretary and
Mr. Reginald Maudling retains his
post as Chancellor of the Exche-
quer. Lord Hailsham (soon to
revert to his old name of Quentin
Hogg) remains as Minister of Sci-
ecce and Selwyn Lloyd (dropped
by Macmillan in his reshuffle last
May) becomes Lord Privy Seal and
Leader of the House. Lord Home
(and be will become Sir Alexander
Douglds Home, when he fights his
safe Tory bye-election seat of West
Perthshire) has stolen some thunder
from the Labour Party election pro-
gramme by appointing Mr. Heath
(ofCommon Market effort) Secre,
tary of State of Industry, Trade and
Regional Development as well as
President of the Board of Trade.
Thorneycroft rcma:ns as Minister of
Defence; Duncan Sandos retains
his Min'stry of Commonwealth Re-
lations and Colonial Affairs and
adds Mr. Butler's old post of Cen-
tral African Affairs.
Brooke Still Home Secretary
Surprisingly, Mr. Brooke remains
as Home Secretary. Marples re-
mains in Transport and Mr. Hare
is elevated to the Peerage and goes
to the Lords as Chancellor of the
Dlnchs- orF Lancaster.


Lord Carrington leaves the Ad,
miralty to become a member 'of the
Cabinet as Minister without Port,
folio, so that he may report back to
the Lords.
Opening of Parliament Deferred
The new session of Parliament
has been postponed until November
12 to enable the Prime Minister to
take his seat in the House of Com-
mons after his bye-election on Nov-
ember 5. It is understood that Mr.
Harold Wilson, Labour Opposi,
tion Leader, has objected strongly to
this unusual procedure.
At the time of going to press
it is not known whether Sir John
Hobson will be appointed Attorney
General, since he is appearing be-
fore the judicial committee of the
Inns of Court for alleged breach
of professional conduct in that he


assured the House of Commons
that t'ie charges against Chief Eina-
horo did not carry the death penal-
ty in Nigeria and that the maxi-
mum sentence possible was seven
years. Chief Enahoro, when he
did stand trial after extradition, was
sentenced to fifteen years.

OBITUARY
It is with deep regret we report
the death of Miss Rosa John Bap-
tist. of 32 HIew Street, Roseau, aged
63, who fell dead on her way to the
hospital at I1 a.m. on Wednesday
October 16. Since undergoing an
operation last May she has had to
report at the hospital every week.
It was seen by many that shcr;ly
before her death she was suffering,
though always active and exact at
her duties. Aftet her Mother's
death, she has been taking care of a
sick sister (Mrs. Theresa Clarke), for
whom many felt most sympathetic
on hearing of Miss John Baptiste's
death, and woo accepts "that it is
the will of God."
The deceased was a female warder
for years at the Prison, responsible
sometimes for taking patients ovec to
the mental home in An:igua, Her
family has al."ays been well respected
by people of all classes. They are
active members of the Church tak-
ing active parts in Church Societies
as MN.urt Carmel Society. Legion
of Mary and the Social League of
Catholic Women. She left t o
mourn her loss an only daughter,
Mrs.iVeronne Bryan, (nee Peters)
who worked for years at the Bulletin
Office and, now resides in Curacoa
with her husband and five children,
also two in Dominica, Chriitabqle
I lemaque wno ihves witr e a. i.T
Mrs. Jeffre Robinson, and Landnr
Laveniere, seven grand children, one
sister Mrs. Clarke, one brother (Mr.
Wilfred Smith) who lives and works
at Norway and his son Gerald
Smith who live, at home and works
at the Treasury as a clerk, two
nieces, Gwendollne Cyrille (nee
Carbon) and Alfredua James (ne
Carbon) living in Trinidad, also
other members here and abroad.
The funeral was on Thursday at
4.30 p. m. and was well attended.
She was taken from the house of
mourning well conducted by the'Rites
of the Church by Rev, Father Lonke
the spiritual Director of the Mount
Carmel Society, then to the Roman
Catholic Cemetery. She shall be
remembered by many. May her
soul rest in peace.

SIR ALEXANDER DOUGLAS HOME, the
only Btitish Prime Minister we have
so far met before his elevation, has dis-

Reminding Mr. Wilson that although he
was the Fourteenth Earl, presumably Mr.
Wilson was the fourteenth Mr. Wilson,
the controversial P. M. asked: "Are we to
say that all men are equal except Peers?"
He then proceeded to divest himself of the
major obstacle to eligibility for the House
of Commons.

PLEASE DON'T BE VEXED!

As you know, last June we ordered 600 broiler
chicks to arrive on September 24. At the time we
didn't know Hurricane Edith would be churning over
Barbados when the plane was supposed to take off. We
never received these "Christmas" chicks,
Again, on October it we were supposed to receive
8oo chicks. We were very disappointed when only
half that number came by air from Trinidad.
These two unfortunate events will result in a short-
age of SYLVANIA-FRESH Chickens in the weeks
ahead. Naturally we are doing all in our power to fill
in the gaps with stewing chickens -and SYLVANIA-
FRESH Ducklings but these too have their limit.
Please don't Vex!
And if the PHOENIX, BARON'S, CHARLES SEL:-
SERVICE and ELI'S don't have any SYLVANIA.
FRESH Chickens left... please.don't be vexed with
them either, Someday soon there will be plenty of
tender, fresh-killed birds brought down from Sylvania.
So keep asking for the best.


Thanks for your Patronage & Patience!

The Rich And The Poor

Many of the emergent
countries- for instance in
Africa and the Caribbein-
face overwhelming economic
problems through no fault of
their own people. Some are
simply poor in natural re-
sources.- Il all of them,
including those that are richer,
the development of their
economies has been dictated
by, and geared towards, the
metropolitan countries who
stared them on the road to
the modern world. Nation,-
alist governments are inherit/
ing institutions and systems
of government, education
and economics, evolved in
and appropriate to Europe--
but of varying relevance to
their problems.... Refusing
independence to countries
conscious of their new na-
tionhood is politically unten,
able as well as morally inde,
sensible. But it is equally
indefensible, having imposed
our sort of world upon these
countries, not to help their
development with money
and skills and with resources
and trade in the context
of their own societies. What
is wanted is a Declaration of
Interpendence.

This new cargo vessel will sal for the Booker line between Liverpool, England, and Georgetown in British Guiana.


I am worried by a growing im,
pression of disengagements in Britain
towards the emergent c o u n tries;
"there are more kicks than ha'pence
in helping them". Apart from all
else, this is wretchedly shortsighted.
In 1845 Disraeli wrote in Sybil that
there were two nations in England
-the rich and the poor. The great
modern problem is th'. gap between
the rich and the poor nations. When
Disraeli was writing, and for long
after, the general attitude of the dich
was that the poor were feckless, in-
competent and irresponsible; it was
throwing good monvy after bad
to help them, and dangerous to ed-
ucate them. But the whole British
economy has been stimulated to the
benefit of all by raising everybody's
standards of living and education. I
am convinced that broad and lasting
prosperity can only flow from nar,-
rowing the gap between the rich
and poor countries. But in fact


the gap is stll widening. I wish
that even some part of the resources
of minds and money that are now
devoted to means of destroying man-
kind could be devoted in solving
this problem.
The daunting weight of their
economic problems makes it inevit,
able that many of the new regimes
will be dirigiste; there will be much
State control, planning and partici
pation in industrial enterprise.
Nevertheless, there remains plenty of
work to be done, and plenty of
room for profitable investment, by
private enterprise in underdeveloped
countries. But this requires the
directors of private investment to
understand the problems and realities
of the countries in which they- re
operating, and to adapt themselves
to their societies and economies as
they evolve, not as they would ex,
pect them to be in London and the
Home Countries. For the new


governments, it demands that, in
making new rules. They recognize
problems of investors and their need
for a sufficient return; and having
made the rules, they must fairly and
stick to them. Uncertainity about
the intentions of governments is the
worst deterrent to investment.
What the Government
can afford
The British Government should
do far more than they are doing at
present .- especially for the new
nations who show that they are ready
to make sacrifices to help themselves.
And before anybody tells me that
this country can't afford it, let them
look at the figures in perspective.
Direct aid from the British Govern-
ment to Commonwealth countries
during 1961, including Exchequer
loans, totalled about C140 million.
In the same year the deficit in British
Railways was more than this; and


British agricultural subsidies were
about two and a halftime as much.
Moreover, for all those countries
whose economies depend upon the
export of primary production, the
aid they receive can be virtually set
at nought--to the benefit of the
donor countries-by falls in com-
modity prices. Taking British
Guiana alone, total aid including
Exchequer loans, is running at the
rate of about 3 million a year.
Yet in 1961 the British Exchequer
collected over 8 million in duty on
rum from British Guiana !
In this general context, I hope
that, in the Common Market
negotiations, the British Government
will steadfastly refuse to inhibit their
freedom to help the underdeveloped
countries ofthe Commonwealth, and
that whatever the outcome of the
negotiations the European Economic
Community as a whole will increase
their overseas aid.







SATURDAY OCTOBER 26, 1963 DOMINICA' HERALD


"SO THEY SAY"--
BY BOB & RAY
IF two months from today is Boxing Day, then four
months from today will be Carnival! Surely an
event as large as Carnival requires lots of advance planning
S. . not only to make it a success but also to make it safe
-and sane. Who are the people planning the 1964 Carni-
val ? Their's is a great and thankless responsibility.
Very little has been printed about the "tempest in the
teapot" scandal of the Citrus Association hearings, charges
and counter-charges. Perhaps the issue is not clear enough
for a newspaperman to grasp in order to write about it.
However, if talk means anything, there is more talk about
Citrus superintendents than there is talk about selling the
citrus crop. No doubt Eaba Butlri is sorry he ever applied
for the hct-sput job in Citrus. '-e surely could not have
known there was such a line-up opposedd to him working
there. And, after satisfying Gccst for nine years, atd mak
ing a world offrien:,s fbr both himself and Gecst during
that time, Baba Butler should be the man the authorities go
out and beg to get the citrus mess straightened out. Mr.
Butler's record is the thing to take into account. His
accomplishments, his fire, his courage ai.d his determina-
tion on doing the job right . these are attributes one
must look far and wide to find not just )n Dominica but
anywhere. Add these qualities to Mr. But er's fairness and
it is easy to see why the man has dozens and dozens oft
friends and supporters. Could you want a better peson
running the now-fouled-up citrus shed Aren't we lucky
to get such a man?
And speaking to citrus: always, at this time o0 year,
we see thousands of potential boxes of oranges ripening on
the trees. Soon they will be a golden yellow (only at
high altitude -Ed.) in colour only, not the value. And
Sne answer i:s as simple as the word sales;
takes sale;.nanship to move any crop or
at is "just as.good as" the. other fellow's.
fanges are good but they are 'competition ,fbor
rket6 Not so with grapefruit'. . Dominica's
gra^y.,, "-ridr to most other grapefruit imthe world.
They do not need a salesman. They Sell themselves.
Our.oranges need the help of a concentrated sales effort.
Hu.ricane Flora dumped 35 inches of rain on Jamaica
in three days! This makes the Jamaica banana industry
feel almost as badly as we do in Dominica. We know
that St. Lucia suffered heavy banana damage, undoubtedly
Grenada did too and Martiniquan bananas are flatter than
our's so what's going to happen with bananas in the
British market? Could the shortage force the price on
bananas higher and hi her so that those planters fortunate
enough to still have the odd them stem of figs to ship,
might realize two to three time as much on each stem as
formerly?
As in most other commodities, make them scarce and
the price rises. We fail to see how the banana is any
different than, say, sugar, coffee, cocoa or any other crop.
Look at the sugar prices surge up and up and up with the
advent of poor yields. And the day Flora hit Cuba, the
world price of sugar went up another $20 per ton. How
come our green boat price of bananas did not skyrocket
after Edith and Flora finished romping over six or eight
bananaproducing islands in the Caribbean?
Martinique used to ship a boat-load every day of
green bananas to France. The French banana buyer can-
not simply pick up the telephone and order bananas from
Cambodia or Ghana to replace the ones Martinique is not
shipping. No Sir, it will take any country 9 to Io months
to raise bananas and in that time what happens to the
price?
Let cold, freezing temperatures hit the southern United
States and the price of oranges and grapefruits climb to
$io-$15 US per box overnight. A smart, marketing
setup here on Dominica could be ready to step into this
situation but good fortune comes only to those who are
ready and prepare in advance for it. But like any other
winter, the one that is only a month or two away in the
States now, is bound to have its crazy recordbreaking


weather patterns. Are we
ready to cash in on this or
are we just going to read
about it in the papers?
We can thank the coming
of the Kungsholm cruise-ship
for our smooth main streets
in Roseau, perhaps. What
if we had a tourist boat every
week? O'ir potholes might
be a thing of the past. Or
so they say.

of Commons, but Lord Denning
reveals that, from September 24th'
1952, in a Directive issued to the
Director-General of t h e Security
Service, the Home Secretary was the
Minister concerned. Yet Mr. Broke
was not in that group of Ministers
who interviewed Mr. Profumo! He
only rather pathetically called
in the head of Security rather late in
the day, to get put in,, the picture.
Even then he did not inform the
Prime Minister of a new develop,
ment in the affair, an allegation that
the RuSsian Naval Attache had tried
to use Keeler to obtain military in,
formation.
The attack on the government will
take a predictable course in the
Commons. There will be indigna,
tion that the House has not been
told of the Home Secretary's con-
cern with security. And there will
be heavy pressure on Mr. Brooke
personally (who retains his post).
The Home Secretary has been a


heavy embarrassment to the gove-n-

for his marked illiberalitv in the ex,
