I Commonwealth Parliamentary
Conference Ends
s C. M. Returns
as THE ninth annual Commonwealth Parliamentary
o Association Conference ended at Kuala Lumpur on
g Saturday, (Nov. 16) with a firm assurance to the people of
Malayasia by Senator M. C. Cormack, of Australia.


He said that, speaking on
behalf of Britain, Australia,
New Zealand and other
members of the Common,
wealth, the Malaysian people
could be assured that, if they
were menaced to an even
greater degree than at present,
these Commonwealth coun/
tries would support them to
the limit of their capacity.
Dominica's representative,
Hon. E.O. LeBlanc, rt* "r-ed
home en Mtc
S:ormer Prime Minister of
New Zealand, Mr. Walter
Nash, gave a general review
of the world situation with
special reference to the vari,
ous trouble spots,
Apartheid Discussed
Discussion ranged over a
variety of subjects, and Mr.
James Griffiths of Britain
brought up the question of
apartheid. Opinion w a s
unanimous in condemning
apartheid, and many dele,
gates from newly independ-
ent African countries spoke
on this topic.
By general consent, with
the ruling of the chair, the
problem of Kashmir was not
discussed.
Summing up, the Chair/
man of the Conference, Dr.
Lim Swee Aun of Malaysia,
agreed many of the nations in
the Commonwealth were
eager and full of action. "If
only all members of the
Commonwea!th can work
together as a family, the
vigour of the younger ones
can be guided by the older
members", he said. This
was providing there was a
will to solve problems, frank,
ness of discussion, and read/
ness to share the burden of
solving problems, added Dr.
Lim.
Next year's conference will
be held in Jamaica. (BIS)

Some other crop-producing tiees

principal export, was severely hit.
Cocoa, Tobago's principal export
crop, reportedly :s a complete loss.
Ihe main crop is harvested from
October to December with a small-
er harvest in April.
Both ripe and immatu-e cocoa-

Trinidad and the Dominican

was suffered by the banana producers
and the coffee crop damage is estim,

Severe Damage
Approximately half of Cuba's
sugarcane crop is produced in the
battered Eastern section of the island
and preliminary and fragmentary re-

with some-effects likely to extend to

ACTION
I- has, n fact, been said by states,
men and philosophers that in the re v
world wh.ch is coming into existence
application of the Golden Rule is not
only a moral duty but an indispens,
able condition of survival. "As ye
wcu'd that men should do to you, d)
ye also to them likewise."
The only way to prevent misun-
dersiandings and thus to avoid rrany
of the bad things that occur is by
POSITIVE ACTION. We need vision
to see the best courage to face the
worst, adaptability to change, rsis-
tance to hatred and jealcusy, and we
n-ed the Golden Rule.
To seek understanding is nobility's
true badge. Instead of weighing in
grudging scales the good and the bid
we ;ee in those around us, we need
to keep in mind that they, like us,
have difficulties, sorrows, and wants,
and that they are fellow-actors with
us on the stage of life.
We often hear people talk about
the "imperatives" of life. What
was the categorical imperative, the
conditional command of, nature,
formulated by Immanuel Kant, the
German-Scottish philosopher? It
'might well have been designed as a
means toward ending our misunder-
standings: ACT so that the principle
of your action could be made a uni-

We print on this page all that news w
lengthy Balson Trial Story.

Empire Club Holds Sportlight
Successful By Eddie Robinson
Festival -Second Trial Match
Disappoints-


"Whether we like it or not we
(West Indians) do have a culture"
was the clincher sentence of an art-
icle written in our contempory News-
paper by "Dominican" a few weeks
.go. Those who were present at the
EMPI'XE CLUB'S M u s i c and
Song Festival on Sunday evening at
the St. Gerard's Hall will undoub,
tedly agree that there is 'something'
whicl we West Indians can lay claim
to, 'some thing' in the line of music
.nd songs by which we are able to
be identified.
VARIETY
The predominant characteristic of
the items on the evening's programme
was its multifariousness, beginning
with a hot number by the Jewels,
attaining its zenith with D G. S.'s
Errll Walker's Combo playing
"Donna Immobile" and "Steer away
to tle Sea" (the latter was tumul,
tu-usly applauded), and climaxing
with Sam Cooke's "Saturday Night"
(encored) rendered by the ever pop-
ular Idol, Ulric Jackson, accompa-
nied by Benjamin Challenger (one-
time Elvis Prestley imitator).
ITEMS & APPLAUSE
There were over twenty items on
the Programme of the Festival which
was under the distinguished Patron-
a. e r--sheL-Ton. Minister.of Labour
& Social Services and Ms;Stevens.
Loid Explorer, Joseph Lewis, sing,
ing his self-composed "My Boys'
days at School" provoked intermit-
tent peals of laughter fiom the large
audience'(over 50o persons); Ru-
dolph Richards (Satchmo) imitat-
ing Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Arm-
strong had a similar effect on the
audience; Miss Marie Davis Pierre's
choir singing "Get me to the Church
on Time" and 'Just a Little Bit of
Luck", had a particularly good effect
on the audience; Clarinetist Norman
Letang, Connie Francis, imitator
Alma John, Soprano Joan Pember-
ton ("Grenada"), Sybil Joseph-
"Tonight- a n d Avondald Ren6
imitatig Bobby Darin with "Eight-
een Yellow Roses" received factional
applause; but it was the 1963 Steel-
band Champions, the Whitchurch
Sound Channel Symphonettes, play-
ing "Stranger on the Shore" a n d
"Love in the Cemetery" which re-
ceived prolonged universal applause.
Calypsonians Embert Stowe and
Sherman James were as good as ever.
All in all everyoneleft the twohour-
long Festival contented.

this custom has been discontinued in

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 23, 1963


IN THE CABINET
By Phyllis Shand Allfrey
From Chapter III
THE first essential for a poliician-apprentice (I would
submit) is the capacity to suffer and remain unshaken.
One must be prepared for the financial squeeze, the shock-
ing insult, the startling treachery. I used to think of that
even when I dashed through the Underground approach to
the British House of Commons which was used by Mem-
bers and by the staff of my favourite London institution.
At one time I had a permit enabling me to enter the House
through a sort of catacombs arch; I did a parttime job for a
Labour M. P. there. It was a privilege to cut through
that tunnel with the great roar of traffic above, studying the
gait and expressions of M. P.s who went about the nation's
business. Twice I walked solemnly along in imitation of
Lord Atrlee, who was a few yards ahead and had a news,
paper in his overcoat and his hands clasped behind his
back. The Policemen then in the House knew me well
by sight and one (who was a stamp collector) used invaria,
bly to ask: "how's that island?"
One reason why my early detractors among the very
officers of the Labour Party of Domini :a found it impossi-
ble to make headway with mischievous charges that I was a
Communist was because of my powerful friends and
guarantors in that austere Chamber. Those old frienJs
knew very well that the rambling broadminded structure of
the British Labour Party was the maximum discipline to
which an individualist nature like mine could submit,
just as the tolerant old Anglican Church, with its ritualis-
tic variations and exquisite poetic liturgy remained my neg,
elected Mater Religiosa. The big joke was that in those
early founding days of the Dominica Labour Party, the
accusers and mischiefmakers were types who would easily
(in my view) have fallen victims to authoritarian ideology
which I would have resisted to the end. For one thing,


theyha no sense bf numour; !or another, I could not
imagine them suffering in the cause of liberty.
It may be said without hesitation that the man who
did the most for the newly made Labour Party both before
and after foundation was the then President of the Domin,
ica Trade Union, E. C. Loblack. Like myself he saw
the necessity not just for a "Labour Union" or a "Labour
Party" but for a Labour Movement, such as the relationship
between the British Labour Party and the T. U. C. had
made possible. He was a cofounder of the Trade Union
with my well-remembered Uncle, R. E. A. Nicholls, and
a few others.
But in the West Indies, Unions had taken upon
themselves to be Parties as well, not just to affiliate by
choice and contribution to the Party most likely to raise the
workers' standards. We run into some ferocious oppose,
tion because some of the personnel of the Union did not
understand the voluntary and tolerant nature of such a
relationship; moreover, there were those who wished to use
the Union for other ends, and some of my founder-collea,
gue's fiercer utterances rent the gap wider. I soon found
myself involved in an internecine struggle, and there were
incidents like the padlocking of the Union Hall and the
young "General Secretary" of large proportions who de/
cleared I had attacked him at his desk with an umbrella.
The big fight for control eventually ended in the Courts of
Law: as a result, the Trade Union was gravely weakened,
financially and otherwise.
One of two of my Federal colleagues had undergone
parallel experiences. In Barbados, the Union had broken
with the Prime Minister's party. In Jamaica there were
two trends in trade unionism due to conflict of loyalties
between one political party and another. In Antigua and
St. Kitts, however, the Union was the Party. St. Lucia
was gradually working her way through a "dominant
Labour group" position to the British democratic pattern.
Evidently, trade unions were regarded by Caribbean politi,
cians as the machinery of power, particularly when they
had no proper organisation of their own. It was all most
interesting, especially to one who afterwards became a Min,
isterof Labour, albeit with extremely limited advisory


powers and no technical Labour Adviser at her elbcw.
Those early apprenticeship days! They were days of
struggle and shortage. If anyone asks me upon what
funds the Labour Pary of Dominica was founded, I can
truthfully answer "on my small housekeeping allowance
and the pennies of the poor", and :t is a fact that no mem,
bers of the wealthier classes came forward wiLh even a
single donation. They seemed genuinely afraid of the new
thinking posed by the growing Labour Party and were
further scared off by malicious rumours.
Nearly two years after the founding of the Party, a
general election loomed up- that was in 1957. Several
new people came forward to join the Party, which had
withstood severe attacks, was able to maintain an office,
and had caught the affectionate imagination of the labour,
ing folks. Among these newcomers were two young men,
one large and one smnl!, who were (though I did not
know it at the time) cousins. Their method of approach
was' modestly deferential. Both w-re family men one
married shortly after he was accepted as a candidate, the
other was happily married in tne North. I trusted they
would be prototypes of the new kind of politicians in
which the West Indies was relatively deficient. . politi-
cians whose nationalism would not fall within the narrow
confines of race or littlekingdom pride but would be based
on those United Nations principles which had been written
into our Party constitution. Perhaps my hopes were pre,
mature. It was a lot to expect of any candidate!
Those two fairly welleducated young men assured me
that they were not entering politics for mere personal ambi,
tion nor to become Mimsters, but because they wanted to
"serve the people". There wis no reason to disbelieve
them; they were among our few acceptable candidates,
although inexperienced. Their names were Alexander
Ducreay and Edward O. LeBlanc.

So They Say
By Bob & Ray
We had a long, leisurely talk
with a Canadian business man the
other day and we wre haid press-
ed to defend ,ome of the glarmnt
unexplainable injustices and social
paras.dxes btat this man brought up
for discussion. For example: he
asked us if we knew why Dominica
has such a !igh income tax rate
with virtually no benefits, exemptions
or deductions for the farmers. "The
island is dependent upon agriculture,
you know, and if your people do
nothing to stimulate investment by
local people in this b; sic industry.
well, then, how can you tolerate
such inequities"' He was plainly
irritated by such irrational behavior.
And before we could even venture
a guess as to "why" our tax, rate is
so high, higher than the other West
Indies, we are told.. and we are so
poor, poorer than the other West
Indies, we are also informed, before
we could advance our ideas on the
subject, ;he Canadian was off again
on another subject! Still not having
relaxed with his rum and coke, sit-'
ing on T1c edge of his chair, he
fairly spat out the words: "This
island is a joke., a joke, a mon-
strous joke!"
Wondering whether to dispute
him and perhaps tell him Montserrat
is a bigger joke, or to inquire why
Dominica is a joke, we spped our
drink and waited.
"Look here", he puffed, "I rq-
present several laree bus ness inves
tois in Canada. I've been ,heir man-


-mt i e totr nearly twenty years,
travel a hundred thousand mils a
year koking over various investment
possibilities and then writing a re,
port on what I find, My principals
urged me to come to Dominica. Up
to now I had always avoided the
place as it was too difficult to reach.
We have several properties in
Jamaica, and three new ventures in
Barbados, one in Trinidad to keep
us busy but I finally agreed to come
here. Your local Government have
also been asking us to visit the island.
But what do I find, upon arrival?
Would you believe it, the blasted
taxi driver wanted to charge ne $5o
to drive me to Roseau!"
We thought it time to interrupt
our busy businessman and reminded
him of the lack of taxi passengers
and therefore a higher charge must
be made to operate the service. We
reminded him of the steep hills, the
sharp turns that wear out the set of
the tyres in one quarter the mileage of
taxis in, say, Montreal. And then
we reminded him he could have
taken the airport bus for only $5.oo.
The latter he said he had missed as
he had taken time to stroll about
looking over the new airport termin-
al and the airport bus had departed
for Roseau without him.
"And when this preposterous fellow
asked the price of $o5, I tried to
telephone some of these Government
chaps who had been asking me to
visit Dominica. Would you believe
it," he spat at me. "the bloody tele-
phone was a joke. It's dead. No
body answered it. I never saw this
in all my traves. Here Dominicans

everything-no telephone, no trans-
portation. What happened? Ran out

NO HANGING!


FULLY one-third of the Western world
(all the Scandinavian and several
European countries, ten of the United
States of America and some Provinces of
Canada) have abolished capital punish,
ment for a sufficiently long time that
present statistics compared with earlier
figures, show hanging or execution to be
no deterrent to the crime of murder.
In the olden days, it was considered a
deterrent to hang people for all felonies,
hut in England, in 1826, that procedure
was estimated to be barbaric and abolish,
cd (except for murder); it obviously was
no "cure" for such comparatively minor
offences.
It would therefore appear that the con/
tinuatioh of capital punishment is enforced
chiefly to satisfy man's sadistic primeval
instinct for revenge. Some persons have

VOTES FOR YOUTH


THE HERALD is in favour of reducing
the voting age from 21 years to 18.
We have always been sympathetic to
the young conscripts abroad whose cry
has been: "old enough to die in battle--
too young to vote!" Dominica has no
army conscripts; instead she has a growing
battalion of well/informed young people
prepared, we believe, to live for their coun/
try. According to statistics there are more
young people than adults reading books in
Roseau. In general, this means that local
youth is more literate and on the whole
better informed than its elders (though this
is rot invariably the case, of course).
What youth chiefly lacks is experience and
responsibility. Time will give them the
former; giving them the vote is one mode
of presenting them with a great civic
responsibility, which we have faith the
majority of them will not abuse.
After all, there are many girls in this
island who are already mothers at the age
of- 8; Are we to say that the exercise of
the vote isa graver responsibility than the.

It is clearly understood that the British Government
would have to be consulted on this proposal for votes at
18, as we are not an independent territory and could at
best only be a fragment of such. One island in a possi/
ble new federation (Barbados) has taken steps to secure the
vote for the under-2is. Whatever Barbados' motive may
be for doing so at this time, we think the other islands
might do a lot worse than fall into line. Let us face the
fact that children are growing up faster than they did; they
.are learning more and learning quickly; let us give them
the right of choice at 18 of their elected representatives.
In the opinion of the HERALD, such a concession to
modern thinking would do more good than harm, and the

Expensive Birds

Sir,-A couple Saturdays ago I
went into Messrs. Charles Self Ser-
vice to purchase a Sylvania Fresh
whole chicken.
The one w h i c h I selected was
priced by a tag on the inside of the
plastic wrapper $4.Io-This price I
am told by Mr. Charles is put on by
Messrs. Sylvania Poultry Farms
themselves.
Just then, as a matter of interest I
called upon one of the clerks to have
this particular bird weighed-it scaled
3-tlbs.-which obviously meant that
the price paid for Sylvania fresh chick-
en works out at the very high figure
f $1.17 per pound.
Nevertheless, in view of the high
price, I immediately took off towards
Mr. T. A. Boyd's Poultry Mart-
where I obtainedthe exact FRESH bird
wrapped all in plastic as well for the
very reasonaole ;price of $r.oo per
pound. There 'and then I at once

Save The
Children!

Dear Madam,--In the DOMINICA
HERALD cfNovember 2 1 was glad to
sHeon page 4 the names for the child
care training of the Commonwealth
Save the Children Fund in St. Vin-
c:nt. The members cf h!e local Y. T.
Committee are well chosen indivi-
duals so far as their abilities in deal-
ing with local and social activities are
concerned. During the past few
months, it was looking as if the
Youth Trust Fund was not surviv-
ing; but from the time of its incep-
tion of the organisation t h e wide
patronage wh:ch tias Leen given by
many people of the various islands
of the entire West Indies, including
our Dominica, gave me the firm
conviction that such a worthy effort
could not be completely ext;ng'iished
in the midst of all the tther beneficial
enterprises for the good of suffering
humanity.
His past Excellency a n d Lady
Hailes who are the pioneers of the
efforts of this fund will be glad to
know that we in Dominica are dc:
termined to carry on with saving the
children. There is more ned for such

Women's Employ-

Emancipation
What is a woman when
she is completely emanci-

the argument that emanci.

way to gainful employment.
Should she compete with

without f c ar or lavour.
Should her sex be a private
diftreiiation to b e dis-

Should she be considered the
"same as man" or as "diffe,
rent but equal": Should we
believe that women are
potentially as com p e t e n t
as men in every
walk cf life, so that their
failure to achieve the same

Women's
Employment
(Cont. from page 10)
Even the return of mother back
to work after the child has attained
school age is likely to have adverse
effect on the quality of the human
race. Lack of parental care has al-
ways been responsible for delin-
quency among children. Judging
from the cases before juvenile
courts it can be siferred that delin-
queficy is the most usual result when
children are left to themselves be-
cause both the parents are away.
Bereft of benign, healthy, parental
influence it will be no wonder if
children grow up as abnormal,
lopsided human beings. Thus it
appears that if at all there is a pro-
blem, it is that of devising ways and
means of enabling the women to
use their leisure in a healthy, con,
structive manner, without sacrificing
any of our basic social institutions.

Answer To Last
Week's Factual Test
i. The "Aedes Aegypti" or
Stegomyia Mosquito carries both
dengue and yel'oav fever.
2, The Aedes Aegypti has white
bands across its legs and abdomen
and stands with a "hunched back".
3. To prevent this mosquito from
multiplying, never let water collect'
around the house in old tins, metor
tyres, or tr:e-trunks. Change the
water, ir iwer vases daily. Put
iusquioc-pytul ihicrlg uover waier
.iank&.and tleir outlets. Pour oil over
any stagnant pools of wated. These
are their breeding places.


Famous Cleric
Returns
The Rev. Philip Potter
and his wife Doreen are
revisiting Dominica for eight
'days. This cel e brate d
Methodist Minister, who was
Director of the Youth Dept.
of the World Council of
Churches (based in Geneva)
until 1961, is here specifically
to see his mother. The
Potters ar staying at the
Methodist Manse with Rev.
and Mrs. Roberts.
Rev. Potter, descendant of
the respected Dominican
family which gave its name
to "Pottersville", was ap-
pointed in 1961 to the staff
of the Methodist Missionary
Society as one of its General
Secretaries. His work (from
London headquarters, until
1967) includes responsibility
for West Africa and the
West Indies.
A radio interview with
Rev. Potter has already been
broadcast twice recently, and
the Minister will preach at
Methodist Church services
tomorrow (9 a.m. and .7.15
p.m.)


Unrequited, Love

Since I made an acquaintance I desired to make
The peace of my mind and my heart are at stake
For she treads not the path that I tread every day,
Of me she thinks not, as she goes on her way;
She remains uninformed of the words thit arise
To my lips -- one lone phrase that springs forth and
then dies.
Perhaps she has prayed to the Spirit above
To bring her allied to the one she may love;
Perhaps burning passions are lighting her soul?
More glowing and dazzling are they in my own!
Yet not long ago not a man would have thought,
That some airborne human to space would resort -
So nothing can quench sparks of hope in my soul.
One sweet day, I dare hope, I may call her my own!
