--To visit Dominica by royal yacht Brit
22nd, while on a convalescence cruise fel
operation for appendicitis. Welcome !

It has been suggested to
the HERALD by small retail,
ers who have no surplus
stores that stocks of brown
sugar are being "held up"
by some merchants in the
expectation that the control,
ed price will be upgraded
soon. We are unable to
verify these suggestions before
going to press, but it is clear
that some shops have insti-
tuted an informal rationing
s a1cimc sucn as "one or z :.-.
of brown sugar only to a
customer". We also know
that those who cannot pay
thirty cents or more per lb.
for white sugar cannot
sweeten their coffee or !e2,
having been unable to get
sufficient brown sugar.
Meanwhile the p e n iiN
bread, a national "filler" ftor
over a century, is threaten-d
because of rising costs ot
flour, etc. The follow. ing
release signed by bakers
James O. Paul, Alva A.
Lafond, James Burton, John
LaRonde and Addison
Anthony tells the tale:-
"We Bakers of Dominica,
members of the steering comr
mittee of the proposed Bakers
Union (discussed in Maich
1963) have decided that due
to the mounting cost of a bag
of flour, the penny bread
should be replaced by a 32
oz. dough bread for 5 cents.
There is now no way a baker
can make even a small profit
otherwise, with $12.50 or
$12.90 for a bag of flour.
Imagine a town baker's ex,
penses! He who rents an
oven at $1.oo per day also
pays out: Head Baker $2.00
per bag of flour; Roller, 75
cents, Busher 50 cents (and
that "bush system" should be
abolished by town penny-

$2.00 yearly
it is impos
profit on t
therefore we
agreed to ba
for 5 cents
a living."

Five Bakers Make Statement A Prince is Born

TWO items of the people's staple diet in Dominica have
either temporarily vanished or are about to vanish from
the shelves ani trays of small retailers. Ever since an offi-
cial reminder that the price of brown sugar is controlled at
17 cents a lb. (the astronomical rise in world sugar prices
having brought the imported white-sugar price to nearly
double that of brown) -- brown sugar is seldom to be

bread bakers); wood $2.00
at least; kerosene 12 cents,
bush 50 cents, electric light
25 cents, yeast 30 cents, salt
15 cents, transport 25 cents
and Bread Carrier 75 cents.
All these expenses amount to
$8.57 plus $12.90 flour cost
per bag.
"Any baker in the town
of Roseau who does not
reach $22.00 after selling the
baked products of a bag of
flour suffers a total loss.
Other expenses which are
not included are: commis,
sfon of 60 cents on every
$5.oo bread sold; bakery
maintenance 50 cents daily
(cleaners etc.); licence $4.80
yearly and medical certificate

As forecast by the HERALD, Peter
Bellot has b:en awarded the 1964
Government Scholarship.

Commonwealth In CrisisP
(Continued prom page 3)
In some instances Britain has been directly responsible
for creating the conditions a one-party state is designed to
cure. If nation/building seems to most African leaders a
dominant priority this is because Britain failed :o create
nations in the colonies she administered. Tribalism was
perpetuated and the tribes simply linked by authoritarian
government at ihe centre. This tradition has been perpe-
tuated even in Kenya. And if the one party state is a pest/
colonial development, preventive detention measures are
not they were a common instrument of colonial govern,
In the process of decolonisation more stress has been
laid on the trappings of democracy than on its essence.
In particular the last phase of British decolonisation has
been marked by a preoccupation with elaborate constitu,
tional structures designed !to contain temporary political
divisions or allay minority fears rather than to tackle long
term social and economic problems. A baffling system of
checks and balances like that presented to Northern Rho,
desia in 51961 is not likely to encourage respect frr parlia,
mentary democracy. Nor is it strange to find Zznzibaris
little attached to a system which allows the party which
democratically secured 54 per cent of the votes at the pre,
independence election to remain in opposition with only
13 seas out of an assembly of 31
Under colonialism education development was neg,
elected until very late and economic development geared to
the needs of the colonial power. Now rapid educational
advance creates new problems. Zanzibar is ususial in
having a large number of secondary school leavers with no
jobs and no prospects. But the problem of unemployment
among primary school leavers is universal in Afiica.
Zanzibar's economy is dependent on a precarious market
for two products, cloves and coconut produce which
together account for 95 per cent of her total exports. These

Suoiuuons are ;hely to lead to s cial unrest and political
Recognition of these factors should not prevent
Socialist from deploring the arbitrary injustice which is
developing in Ghana. Injustice anywhere is our legitimate
concern, and its impact in this case is felt all the more
Because of personal and professional links with a fellow
Commonwealth country. Developments in Ghana make
the task of those in the West who are pressing for the end,
ing of colonialism in Southern Rhodesia and the Portu-
guese territories more difficult.
Yet Ghana's self-reliance is a model for the develop,
ing world. Her achievement in putting the vital areas of
her economic and social life under African control has
been impressive. Tanganyika's troubles underline the
danger of delaying Africanisation. Now Ghana's achieve,
ment is threatened by the bottling up to legitimate criticism
which can only encourage violence and increase the secur,
ity there t Ghana's chief strength has been the size and qual-
i-y of her administrative. elite. Civil service moral: is al/
ready low, and if the administration is weakened by further
purges, Ghana's surge forward will be checked.
Writing about the spread of authoritarian rule in
Africa Professor Bauer has suggested confining aid "to
governments willing to address themselves to Lhe essential
functions of government ... ." This, he argues implausi,
bly, would reduce political t-nsion in Africa. In fact
such action would limit the power of independent states to
plan a mixed economy along socialist lines and drive them
to rely exclusively on aid from the East. This would
hardly make for stability, nor would it achieve Bauer's
libertarian objective. America's economic boycott of
Cuba has not made for stability in Latin America, nor
has it diminished Castro's appeal. The only criterion for
the giving of aid should be whether it is being efficiently
used by the recipient government in the overall interests of
its people.
It would be disastrous if Britain and the West were
t tarn their backs on Left-wing authoritarian regimes in
Africa. If we are really concerned about Communist

p-netrat:on (whether from Moscow, Peking, or Havana)
we shall involve ourselves as we can. To isolate a corn
munisant regime in Africa when the Communist world is
no longer a monolithic bloc would be misguided. The
West must learn to adjust itself to polycentrism and accept
that the old sirrplihcations of the heyday of the Cold War
no longer apply
Th:re is grave danger in ostracis;ng developing coun/
tries which unhappily turn authoritarian. Given its own
recent past the West has no right to play ihe Pharisee. If
Socialists criticiseW let their criticism be related to the inherit,
tance of colonialism and the challenge of development.
The problem of world hunger and the gap between North
and South transcends political theory. Wes:ern social
democracy must not appear to place freedom to s:arve
among the fundamental freedoms.

"Parents Blame
by DJ. Etieine
(School Attendance
I he world as our immediate en,
vironment is presenting a challenge
to both teachers and parents alike.
The manner in which this
challenge is accepted, will largely
deter-mine the success of the child,
parents and teachers.
Parents, apart from being male
and female, may be placed into three
main groups:-Good, Bad and In,
There are times when one may
wonder whether parents are really
fit and proper persons to have the
charge and c;re of young children.
if it were possible to test the suia-,
bilitycf par e n t ho o d, there
would a surdly be an ex-
tremely high rate of failure. There
are plenty more bad parents than
good .ones.
The parents who are of most use
to us in schools are not necessarily
those who are in constant agreement
with us over details, but those that
are on our side over larger issues.
They are those who appreciate
that Education is not something
which can be placed into isolated
compartments, but something in
which home, school and child are
Good parents may grnmble to
themselves, or may even complain,
but that we know, there is mutnal
understanding between teachers and
parents: and the child's welfare
comes first.

Declaration cf Human Rights, states
that Education shall be free and
compulsory at least m the elementary
A slow decay is noticed in the
good relationship which formerly
existed between school and home.
My impression about this is that
many parents nowadays are antagon-
istic towards authority and are re-
sentful whenever it is applied and
inconveniences them,
There is no doubt that there is
too much villainy about our you:h
today, for us to be fully complacent
with their behavior.
Immorality and juvenile delin/
quency fourish despite the efforts of
la enforcing agencies.
'Ihere may. or may not be a
connection between delinquent
children and working parents, but
this problem of delinbuency in
Dominica, is caused in most cases,
by parents whose attitude is either
that of disinterestednesss' or 'neg!i,

A mother said to me that she
was far better tempered when she
was at work or when the children
were on the street.
It is easier to have a neated clash

Warwicks Upset Blackburn

BLACKBURN suffered a major up-
set on Saturday and Sunday last
when they were defeated by War-
wicks by runs. It was a fine win
for lowly Warwicks but a disappoint-
display by the Blackburn batting.
Warwicks won the toss and elected
to bat, but 2 hrs later were back in
the pavilion totalling o n ly 94 of
which Thomas made 57, and Einst-
ein Shillingford bagged 6 for 19.
Blackburn replied with an almost
unbelievable 50, as they had to ans-
wer to fastmen Thomas 5 for 19
a:d Roberts 4 for 21 on Lhe p o r
Windsor Park turf. Notwithstanding
the state of the wicket the batting
lacked purpose.
Clem John with 3 wNickts, Cools-
Larigue with 3 and E'nstein Shil-
ingford with 4 including the hat-
trick easily routed Warwicks for 52
in their second turn at the crease.
But set to score a mere 95 to Win,
Blackburn after a promising start
slumped from 75 for 4 to 83 all out
and many who saw it couldn't
believe it.

One record was broken and
another equalled, both feats being
performed by J. Timothy of Daw-
