Dialogue at the Vatican
On December 4, the Vatican Ecumenical Council
went into recess after deliberating on matters of fir/reaching
importance to the fcrm and function of the Roman Catholic
Church and the outlook for Christian unity. No hard
and fast decisions have resulted from the deliberation so far
-- the Council will be meeting gain next September --
but there has already err.erged a new image of the Roman
Catholic Church and a new meaning to the talk of its
S Nether Christian unity nor Church renewal are new
concepts, but the lat Pope John XXIII, by his words and
deeds, had given these concepts a certain urgency by relating
them to the realities of our own time. Aware of the necessity
of change, Pope John boldly began a measure of self/search-
ing and reform within the Roman Catholic Church which
was to result: n the establishment of a 'dialogue' with other
Churches and faiths and the summoning of the Ecumenical
Council, the general body of the Roman Catholic prelates
from all over the world, to meet in Rome.
The first session of the Ecumenical Council began in
October 1962 and was sadly interrupted by Pope John's
illness and death. But the good work was quickly resumed
by the new Pope, Paul VI, who called a second session of
the Council in September this year. In his inaugural
address, Pope Paul defined the task of the Ecumirenical
Council in terms as clear and passionate as those used by
Pope John. He called for a renewal -of the Church,' not
through a rupture with tradition but rather by divesting
tradition ofaall that and decadent in order' to
d the true "auth fecundity" of -the r'.lhrch.
rie also lIaidgreat stress ,niting Christians and asked
those "other Christians whom we might have offended"
for indulgence,, adding that in its turn Rome was anxious
to forgive anrdTorget. Finally, he urged the Council to
build a bridge towards the modern world and establish a
dialogue with it.
The world applauded these bold and beautiful words;
,but it was no easy task for the two thousand odd Church
'dignitaries meeting in the St. Peter's Basilica at Rome t,
translate these words into decisions on such concrete 'and
controversial matters as revision of the Schema and the
powers of the Roman Curia. Both these matters key
factors in the Catholic Church's inner struggle for reform-
dominated the meeting in Rome. The issue was essentially
a 'de-Romanisation' or internationalisation of the authority
of the Church, and observers discerned a lively behindthe-
scene battle between the progressive elements, who wanted
a larger share of authority for national groups of bishops in
directing the affairs of the Church, and the conservative
elements who were opposed to any diminution in the tradi,
tional and longunchallenged authority of the Roman Curia,
No decision could be reached, and' the issue was referred to
the Pope. The Pope's own views seem to favour interna-
tionalisation of the Curia, and there is therefore good ground
for hope that this important and basic reform in the organ-
isation of the Roman Catholic Church will not take long
to materialise.
The second major issue to dominate the deliberations
in Rome was the revision of the Schema. The debate on
this issue yielded interesting results. One was the moder,
nisation and simplification of the Catholic form ofworship.
An important change on which decision was reached is the
replacement of Latin by modern languages in at least some
parts of the Mass.

Another welcome development was a move by some
SAmerican bishops to include a condemnation of racial
discrimination in the draft declaration on the role of the
'laity which formed part of the Schema. The bishops
argued before the Vatican Council that a condemnation of'

racial discrimination would "console and reasure those who 'Grispholm'
had been humiliated, deprived of their liberty, or oppressed M
because of their colour." Month
A chapter of the Schema that a-oused a great deal of
interest referred to the attitude of the Roman Catholic The M V. GRISI
Church towards the Jews. The move to p'it on record a the SWEDISH A

THESE have been anxious days for
President Julius Nyerere of Tanganyika,
whom we are glad to call a friend as well
as a great and gentle African leader. It
was with relief that the HERALD learned-
after puzzling radio news that he and
his wife Mary were safe in Dar-es-Salaam.
Here we have a ruler who is not afraid to
say that his country's turmoil caused him
"great shame", and condemned the dis/
order unequivocally. This second "army
revolt"-- the earlier one turned Zanzibar
into a republic is still surrounded by
mysterious rumours, which the President
Nyerere, whom we first met years ago
in the Fabian Society office tn London,
remains today what he was then: a slend,
er modest and calm personality. Behind

his gentleness lies a great strength, and
great kindness. Always proud of being
an African, he never forgot that he was
also a citizen of the many-peopled world;
indeed, on meeting him in Nigeria in
1960, he seemed as much aware of this as
ever; and shortly afterwards, when he was
asked provocatively whether he would
clear all "foreigners" out of his country
on independence, he replied publicly that
if he behaved so, he would be false to all
his previous principles and pronounce/
That Nyerere is safe so far to continue
his wise and humane influence among the
other leaders in the creation of an East
African Federation is a matter for thank,
fulness to the people of Tanganyika,
Africa and the world.

A national memorial to Mr. Hugh Gaitskell, former leader of the British La,

you know I have walked all

sympathy with you from the
sole of my feet to the crown
of my head; yet I will not
tolerate any misstatement of
fact. A statement appeared
on your last issue which
reads, "Our Reporter was
under the impression that the

we stand on sinking

stands corrected by Loblack
himself, who denies that he
ever uttered such words.
Now Editor, if your re-

you are not the one to be

have taken the. vote yourself,
therefore, yon cannot make it
appear as if it were reported

We were shocked badly in the intellect.department
the other da,, when we learned that the average adult has a
vocabulary only one and onehalf times that of a child of
ten! Furthermore, we were informed that we know only
one fourth as many words as the average college sopho-
more! But that was the least of it what is infinitely
more significant is that we are now increasing our vocabu,
lary at no more than one hundredth the rate when we
were in the lower grades of elementary school!
According to the professors, the average child of ten
knows the meanings of 34,300 different terms, and since
his sixth year has been learning new words at the rate of
5,000 a year. The average college sophomore is believed to
have a vocabulary of approximately two hundred thousand
words. The average adult vocabulary is 50,'oo words -
one fourth the size of the vocabulary of a college sophomore,
only oneand-one half times as large as the vocabulary of
a tenyear-old.
This report stated that the constant rate of increase
among adults is in the neighbourhood of fifty words a year
- one nehundredth the rate of children between six and
ten. This wide discrepancy is something to think about,
isn't it?
But wait, perhaps you are not the average adult.
Perhaps your vocabulary it not comparatively anaemic, per,
haps you have come a lot further, since you were ten, than
most people. Shall we put it to a test?

his book Word Power Made Easy We will list the sixty

to you to check the closest definition of each such word.

"The Story Of
The Hopkins

King's Lane,
16th Jan. 1964.
The Editor,
Dominica Herald,
In view of the fact that
you have claimed in The HERALD
of the ilth instant that you had an
eyewitness Account of the Hopkins
Affair which Is incorrect, please pu,
blish the true facts as follows:-
On the 13th December, 1963
Sherwin Goddard was walking

along the corridor of the Grammar
School from assembly to his class
room Form 3B. In walking past
class room 3A one of the members
of the class called out to ask him if
he had a pen to loan him. He
replied he had none and continued
on, to his class room.
On his return from the class room
where he had been collecting his per-
sonal belongings from his locker,
there were other boys on the gallery
outside class room 3A. Mr. Hopkins
called out from the class room to the
boys to move on. As he cme
abreast the doorto class room 3A,
Mr. Hopkins called out to Goddard,
to either go to his class room or go
downstairs. Goddard replied that he
had nothing more to do in his class
room (being school breaking up day)
Hopkins came out to the door of the
class room and told him "get going".
As he turned away to'move on along
the corridor to go downstairs, Hop,
kins kicked him in his seat. The

shce of Hopkins left a airk oi the
boy's pants arid Goddad 'said to
Hopkins "you are kicking me and
dirtying my pants". Hopkins replied.
"You have dirtied my shoe."

supervision laughed in derision at
Goddard and Hopkins took no steps
to silence them,
Goddard went to the headmaster
and complained and he promised to
investigate. He sent for Hopkins
and apparently investigated. When
Goddard inquired from the Head,
master, he was told by the headmas,
ter that Hopkins had admitted kick-
ing him as he wanted him to go
down the stairs faster. The head-
master went on to tell Goddard that
he hoped he would not make any-
thing big of it. It was just a joke.
Goddard replied that the way in
which the master kicked him, had
been no joke, because he had felt it.
For those readers who do not
know rhe parties, it should be ex,
plained that the boy Goddard is
taller than Hopkins and for Hopkins
to reach the seat of Goddard's pants
it was necessary for him to reach to a
height above the level of his own hip.
I, the guardian of Goddard went
to the Headmaster the same day and
the headmaster into6rmcd me that
Hopkins had admitted kicking the
boy, and that it was a very unfortun-
ate incident for the school.
When I left te headmaster's off-
ice, I met the Minister of Social Ser/
vices outside the headmaster's office
and on leaving the headmaster's off-
ice, the Minister told me that the
headmastr had vTerfisd- tht Hop-
kins had kicked the boy and it was
up to me to make what complaints
I wanted.
The same day I went to a solci-
tor to file a writ for damages and I
was advised to bring Goddard and
two eyewitnessess to give signed
statements. I did so, later that day
and was again advised that it was
best to write a letter first before go-
ing to court, since the matter would
probably be best settled outside of
A letter was written that day
merely referring to the incident and
asking that Hopkins come in to dis-
cuss the terms of a settlement on my
statement bf claim.
On 3Ist December at rI.oo p.m.
three members of the staff called on
me and asked me to drop the pro,
ceedings against Hopkins. They in-
formed me that if the Government
persists in their action in dismissing
Hopkins, the other members of the
staff would go on strike, and might
even resign. They informed me that
I should drop the proceedings for
the Government to reverse their de-
cision. I told them that the Gov-
ernment has taken a decision. They
assured me that none of the staff saw
the incident; they further told me,
that they had not been presea'. I
asked them why they had come so
late, and why they had not made
Hopkins do something about it earl,
ier. They could not answer. It
seems apparent that they do not
think it wrong that a teacher should
kick a pupil. They must have
since learned the lesson and fortunate-
ly will not be able to imitate Hop,

People's Post
(Cont from page 7)

I wish to place it "n record that
Hopkin's race has nothing to do with
seeking my legal rights. I think it
wrong for anyone in a position of
authority to treat a student who is
supposed to be learning behaviour
from him.
Ialso wish to point out to yur
readers that parents in more progres-
sive countries including England
have taken action against teachers
who have treated pupils with this
method of punishment whichh is not
permissable in schools. Kicking is
no; a permissable method of cornec-
tion in our schools.
I also wish to point out that the
circumstances which surrounded the
kick delivered by O'Farrel are not
similar to this incident. It must be
remembered,too, that this happened
26-years ago. Money values have
changed-since then. -
If to enable us to learn physics in
our schools, we must subject our
pupils to the lesson that kicking is
a normal and polite fonm of addres-
sing others, then let us sacrifice phy,
sics until we can get a master who
wdl know that even little school boys
are entitled to object to being humi-
hated in s u c h a manner without

P.S. (18i--64):- As egards my
letter dated 16th January, 1964. I
wish to add the following:-
I did not attend any staff meeting
of the Dominica Gram School
nor -"as I invited to .-h.W
was I invited to give Mr- .,ins a
h earning.
I was told by the Headmaster
that Mr. Hopkifms ad kicked God,
dardland' if I wished tb see Mr.Hop,
kins. I replied that it was not for
me to wish to see Mr. Hopkins it
was for Mr. Hopkins to find me and
make amends.
There are only two people who
can say confidently whether Hop-
kins kicked with malice or thought,
lessly that is Hopkins and Goddard.
Goddard says that the kick was too
forceful to be thoughtless.' .The re,
ply given by Hopkins to Goddard
when he queried Hopkin's action
will indicate to your readers whether
Hopkins was being "playful" or not.
To me the action of helpingg
Goddard on with his foot" was
unwarranted-thoughtlessly or mali,

Children's (Factual Test) Cornem

Dear Girls and Boys,
This is to wish you a Happy Scho
Year. This term is one of hard work for some of you w
have to seat examinations in June. Examinations are r
so frightening to those wh3 study regularly. The Conve
High School last "Reed/pipe" has a good article on exan
nations. How many of you wait till the last minute to ru
through your work; expecting to do well? We genera
reap wh-t we sow. If you study regularly front. the begin
ning of the school year you are bound to get through yo
syllabus and during your examination you will not pan
In other words you will be prepared for it. Last mini
cramming tends to get the br a i n all muddled up and
course the result is failure.
At the start I wish you a Happy School Year. Unli
a child is happy at home and at school, it is impossible f
him to study. A happy child lives in a happy home. I
is obedient and respectful, and is loved by his parents. U
der such conditions he gets on with his lessons. The r
rots work hard and see that he has the necessary foo
clothes, books etc. to make sure that he make:- use of i
opportunities. At school too, he is obedient, orderly, hell
ful and respectffil. His teachers love him and help him
much as possible.
The dis6bediet and badly behaved pupil is general
backward. He does not pay attention when lessons are b
ing taught; he spends a lot of his study time in He;
Teachers' offices. More often than not, he is also disob
dient at home does no home work and is generally
Such children are a hindrance to a.iy school. Besid
keeping back themselves they keep back others in th
classes; lessons must be explained over for their benefit, th
disturb the class during lessons and prevent other chil
ren from concentrating.
Sometimes too, some parents do not bother to ke
note of the progress of their children. They are only inter
tested when the report comes home. Then they blame t
school or the teacher.
Although this is not the beginning--of a school ye.
you can still take the lesson I am trying to drive home
heart. You have just started the second school term. E
study your lessons seriously. Your teachers are greatly i
terested in your progress, sometimes even more than sor
of your parents. They are grieved when they see la
children waste their talent. These should try to turn a ne
leaf. There will be time enough later in life, to see as ma
pictures in the cinema as possible.
Remember, what you sow that is what you will rea
Here's a "Thought" by H. W. Longfellow:
The heights that great men reached and kept,
Were not attained by sudden flight;
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upwards in the night.
