Work Starts On Padu River Scheme

REGIONAL Engineer George Rodham gave details last
week of the n-cw million dollar hydro-electlic power
station to be built by the Commonwealth Development
Corporation 450 ft. below the existing Trafaigar Station.

In the words of the
Engineer-in-Charge in Dcm'
inica, Mr. H. B. Eniwistle,
the site is a "natural". Water
is taken just below the con/
fluence of the twin Trafalgar
Falls and led by an open
channel to pick up the tail/
race discharge from the exist,
ing power station from
whence it is p'ped parallel to
the road for a mile down to
the confluenee of the Padu
and Roseau Rivers; there the
new power station will be
built with two 800 kilowatt
Island Capacity Doubled
When the new station
comes into operation in
about two years' time the
generating capacity of the
island will have been
doubled. At the present
time the expansion of the
Dominica Electricity Services
has been so rapid that even
the capacity of the two new
260 kw. diesel units installed
last year at Trafalgar has been
nearly taken up.
Work has started at the
foot of the Falls where there
is a small island in the mid,
dle of the Roseau River:
dams are being built either
side of this island to divert
the water to below the Trafal,
gar Station. From then on
the water will be taken by a
wood stave pipeline 40 inches
in diameter to a forebay (on
land owned by Mr. Ayoub
Karam) from whence it will
be taken to the power station
at the bottom of the hill in
two steel pipes penstockss).
All Local Labour
In our interview with Mr.
Rodham, he stressed that all
local labour will being used
on the job and that all pro,
fits from C. D. C. operation
in Dominica have been
ploughed back into the
island. The new installation

has been designed by the
consulting engineers to the
C. D.C., Messrs. Ewbank
and Partners Ltd. ofJamaica,
Londor, Trinidad and
Toronto and fresh capital
investment is being used.

recent throne speech and the budget speech

WE came across an amazing list of African nations the
other day and wondered if ethers would be as sur,
priced as we were to learn of such new places as Burundi,
Mali ani Upper Vclta, Some of the newer nations have
made news as they were made an "independent state" like
Kenya, Zanzibar and Tanganyika b t others like Cameroun,
Chad, Niger and Ruanda have been rather quiet. Some
folks tell us there are now over thirty separate governments
in Africa but we can only count 28.
Starting with the ten nan ed above, we can list Alge,
ria, Moroco, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana. Republic of So'lth
Africa, Madagascar, Maur;tania, Dahomey, Gabon, Ivory
Coast, Congo (Brazzaville), Congo (Leopoldville,) Sene,
gal, Liberia, Somalia, Central African Republic and
Tunisia. What ones have we left out; *
Taking the entire world, think of the new nations
that have added their vo-ce in the United Nations General
Assembly: Jamaica and Trinidad are closest to home but
there are a score of new ones in the Far East. Africa
leads as the continent with the most separate governments.,
And all thesz "new emergent nations" come at a time
when the bigger powers are making plans to "colonize"
outerspace. In the next ten years the world will have
"new nations" on the moon and perhaps one or two other
planets. There will have to be a larger UN building to
seat them all, including our nearest neighbour, Barbados.
What about Antigua:
All these new nations make good customers for the
people who print postage stamps, currency, letterheads and
who-make "official" rubber stamps for clerks to use (bang!
barn!)... It will become increasingly difficult for flag com,
panics to dream up different colour combinations to pre/
vent one nation's flag from copying another's. But it
should be good for business for the folks who make

of the Ambassadors each country feels they must billet in
the other's land!
Whether the people are better off for all this
"independence" remains to be seen. From what we read
in the foreign press now, we'd say the word "independence"
'was the signal for internal bands of discontented mobs to
rise up and lop off the head of his longhated fellow citizen!
Russia loves all this tumult and unrest in the "rew emer-
gent ration" as it gives her an excuse to offer "free military
aid" to the side she wants to win the internal mess. It also
takes the eyes of the Russian people off things at home
which are not going so well. After all their 5, o1 and
20-year-plans and boasting and bluster, the Commies still
cannot raise enough food at home to feed their own people
S... too busy making sophisticated missiles and launching
Cosmonauts into the wild-blue-yonder to bother about
bread for little Ivan or shoes for little Volga.
The cold war seems to thaw out in places like Cuba
and Panama and the sparks we see in those places are dis,
quieting but things are rather confused all over: America
and Canada selling wheat to Russia; England selling
buses and trucks to Cuba; France recognizing Red China;
Switzerland passing laws to keep out any more foreign
workers, etc.
Here on Dominica there is all good news. The Fort
Young Hotel is taking shape, Nassief's new warehouse in
Goodwill is nearly finished (is it true that it has more floor
space than any building on the island ?), the promise ot
another cinema to be built on the fringes of Pottersville,
and repair work has finally started on Imperial Road!
And let's not forget some other recent benefits: thanks to
Norman Rolle we can keep safe tyres on our vehicles with,
out it costing us an arm and a leg; Julien's place where
more and more people are going for auto parts and ser/
vice too; Royer's tidy little superette serve-yourself grocery;
Mandyn's Tropicana Tavern in Portsmouth; Mike and
Gwen Bells place up in Goodwill,... so they say.

Trad 3 Unions And Development
By Tom Mboya

(Tom Mboya is Minister of Justice and Constitutional
Affairs in Kenya and was formerly Minister of Labour and General
Secretary of the Kenya Federation of Labour.)
What is to be the role cf the trade union movement
in Independent Africa? Just as the continent is evolving its
own form of political orgariza.ion and constitutional struc,
ture, so must the workers' leaders also develop ,. suitable
pattern of behaviour and organization
It has been repeatedly stated that the people of Afrca
should not slavishly imitate methods and attuudts which
have been found appropriate for other areas and in other
historical circumstances. Just as the one/party system may
prove in Africa to be mo:e democratic than ny negativ-
obstructive multiparty system, so may trade union cc-
operation with nationalist governments bcst serve the
workers' interests.
We in East Africa are working out the form of
African Socialism to which President Nyercre of Tangan,
yika has given the Swahili name Ujamaa, fnilyhood,
We aim to unite those attitudes of co-operation and com/
munity effort derived from our traditional socieues to build
our new nations and the new Africa.
Trade unions must always remember that they are
part of the Lrger family vwhicn is the nation and continent,
wide fraternity. This does not m.,n that the po:itlcians
are looking for excuses to suppress the workers. The
political leaders of Africa appreciate the role played by the
workers in the vanguard of the struggle against colonialism.
They look for the cooperation of the unions in the new
task of nation-building. Adjustments have to be made if
theniaity of the earlier struggle is to be preserved. In the
battle for Independence, actsof-obstructiveness, e.g. goeslow,
and even industrial sabotage were' sometimes found to be
proper mens-inhdie battle to free our countries from impe,
rialism. After ll, we: were not unaware that similar
methods had been used by trade unionists elsewhere in their
struggle for economic, social and political justice.
'I do not believe that such tactics are appropriate to
the circumstances of free Africa today. Trade -uion lead,,
ers have the difficult task of re/educating their follower. to
change their attitudes towards employers and towards the
government. We appreciate the difficult problem they face
i persuading their members that the businessman who yes,
rerday was the arch-suppoiter of the colonialist regime,
today becomes the colleague of their nationalist government.
I believe that one of the greatest tasks trade unions can per/
form in Africa is to bring about changes of attitude among
their members. They must persuade the workers that if
we are to progress, they must put great :r effort into their
Too often--and this is true anywhere in the world -
people tend to tlink only of strikes and the negative side
of the labour movement when trade unions are mentioned.
I believe more attention should be given to the positive side
of the labour movement and to the great asset it represents.
Even in the approach to fundamental questions, such as the
right to strike, freedom of association, the right of collective
bargaining, some African countries have departed from the
models of the West. Those who rush in and criticize
should first consider the conditions of Africa. We are in
a continuing state of emergency. The majority of our peo,
pie never reach a peaceful old age because of sickness.
Few can follow a truly enlightened existence because they
do not have the educational opportunities. Most live
under such a condition of poverty that they must eke out
miserable and narrow lives.
Under such conditions there is an imperative need for
labour- and capital as well, for that matter-to .o-operate
fully with the government. I would not be happy to see
the curtailment of trade union rights in my own country.
But the guarantee for the continuance of those rights will
rest upon the recognition by the unions of the responsible
role they must play in building property. In the West,
the unions can rightly, concentrate upon gaining for their

members a better share of a la
problem is rather to help to
everyone. Indeed, if unions
the wage interest they may en
rlite of paid workers, as again
peasant farmers.
The kind of labour force
Africa was wasteful and milt
It w'.s highly migratory, unsk
is needed is a skilled labour fo
and with enough stability and
skills, experience and genuir
tasks to be performed.
Linked with the incaease in effi,
cichcy i, an aspect which is free,
quietly overlooked. A skilled and
stable labour force can provide a
reliable and worthwhile market for
Africa's own products. Further,
more a stable labour force can pro,
vide the basis for instituting work-
ers saving schemes, so that a cont,-
buiion is made to investment.
1 believe any Trade Union leader
would wish t- see his organization
concern itself with more than just
zhe wage interest alone. Responsible
leaders should encourage pro-
grammes of education particularly
adult, technical and vocational train-
ing. I believe that trade Union are
capable of making a real contribu-
tion in these fields, both in coop-
eratdon with the government and
with industry and also by organ-
izing their own independent pro-
grammes. Similarly in the field of
health which is closely linked with
productivity-the trade unions can
help with schemes cf health cduca-
tion ahnd even co-operate iiftheles-
tablishment of health centres and
health insurance schemes.__
I have said that we do not intend
slavishly to copy what others-have
done. This is far from saying that
we reject experience from outside.
Many countries have demonstrated
that trade unions need an economic
interest as well as a wage interest.
I a'n thinking ofworkers co-oper,
atives and social organizations in the
Scandinavia, Germany, Switzer-
land and Israel. Here trade unions
showed the way in putting forward
development programmes in the field
of retail and wholesale trade, housing
and even banking and insurance. I
am a great believer in this line of
development and support the moves
already made in these directions by
labour movements in Africa, includ-
ing those by the Kenya Federation
of Labour.
By such projects the organized
workers will become real partners in
the all-important task of building
the new Africa, They learn the
intricacies of economic planning and
take on the responsibilities that make
it possible for them to see develop,
ment from one point of view.
Equally important, the trade unions
become more stable and broader in
outlook by assuming such response'
In other countries of Africa, in
Algeria for example; the trade unions
and workers' organizations have even
entered the productive sector. Because
of the problems a n d opportunities
created by the departure of settlers from
Algeria, the workers have taken over
the running of workshops and estates.
Here again one sees the value ef work,

national development and becoming
aware of wider problems and chal,

Medical Council would ciniinue

is as follows;

Such recognition had been given
periodically since the University
College of the West Indies com-
menced clinical teaching for the de,
gres ofM.B., B.S in special relation
with the University of London.
This recognition now refers only
to students admitted to the Univer-
sity of the West Indies earlier than
9th October 1962 who had matri-
culated for the purpose of reading

the University of London under the

and in both first and second year
courses from October 1963 onwards

BilakRurn Run Spree
Blackburn handed out a sound
thrashing to Combermere last week-
end at the Botanical Gardens. The
much celebrated duel turned out to
be almost a one sided affair. A
sound start of 37 by openers Edison
Joseph and Anthony Phillips. paved
the way to a run getting spree by the
Blackburn top batsmen. Clem
John 142 not out and Phillips 120
were engaged in a sparkling 3rd
wicket partnership of 223 which
produced some of the most brilliant
stroke play for the season. This was
John's second undefeated century in
consecutive league matches for the
reason. Earlier on 39 imperious
runs flowed from the bar of Einstein
Shillingford regi-tering 9 fours in
the process. Blackburn declared
at 340 for 3.
The uphill task was too much
for Combermere and they recovered
from 37 for 6 to reach 141 which
was insufficient to save the follow
on. Nesty 5 for 44 and Clem
John 3 for 28 engineered the rout.
Following on, the batting was more
fortuitous than purposeful and this
time Combermere fell for 86. Two
useful innings of 29 and 28
not out by Johnson Isaac, 27 and
26 by John Joseph and Job i
Lawrence respectively were the only
bright feature of Combermere's uwe
of the crease. Clem John took 4 for

Shillingford 4 for 35 an d Clancy
Casimir 3 for 28.
On their turn at the crease Spar-
tan had little answer to K. Laurent
who routed them for 89, bagging 8
for 34 in the process. When later,
however, S.M.A. were shor out for
126 it was generally felt that the 186
needed for victory was not beyond
Spartan's reach. They failed by ix
runs to reach the target. A most
pleasing feature was the return to form
of top batsman Irving Shillingford
whoscoreda splen did 9I.
K. Laurent bowled particularly well,
and his 5 fot 56 gave him a match
analysis of 13 for 9o.

Clay Dethrones Liston
Cassius Marcellus Clay, better
known as the "Louisville Lip"
created one of the greatest upsets in
the last decade in the boxing pro-
fesion when he dethroned Cham-
pion Sonny Liston at Miami Beach
Florida in their much publicised
fight. Clay entered the ring a 7
to I underdog, but proved that he
can fight almost as well as he can
chat by standing up to Liston far
better than the experts predicted. A
sprained shoulder forced Liston to
retire at the start of round seven, but
up to that time Clay had given a
good account of himself. Too many
fans, however, the fight was a terrific
disappointment and there is notla
guaranteed return clause.
Clay joins the celebrated few who
have entered the ring as s to I or
more underdogs and emerged win-
ners. Others are Gene Tunney,
Jersey Joe Walcott and up to recen-
tly Ingemar Johannson.
Cooper New Empire Champion
Henry Cooper outpointed Brian
London over Is rounds to win the
British Empire and European Heavy
weight crowns on Monday last. Co,
oper who floored present Champion
Cassius Clay in round four, but was
himself decked the following round
is'reported as interested in a rematch
with Clay.
