de Gaulle Visit Now Sunday

FORT-DE/FRANCE. Martinique, March 19: It was announced yesterday
that President de Gaulle's visit to Martinique scheduled for today has now
been put off untfl Sunday--Monsieur le General is to visit Guadeloupe first.
Meanwhile I have received most courteous treatment from the Prefect of
Martinique, Monsier Raphael Petit, who has arranged a press seat for me

statue of Empress Josephine, I am vIso invited to the Mayoral reception in
honour of the President, the same Sunday evening.
Last night there was a spectacular demonstration with flambeaux to
celebrate the re-election of Aime Cesaire to the Council for the consti-

This afternoon, I am taking a trip to the one-time cultural capital of
the French Antilles, St. Pierre, which was totally destroyed with the loss of
3,000 lives sixty years ago by the eruption of Mont Pe!6.

In an endearing and humourous onehour speech

said, "is a wide programme of character training for boys
and girls which builds body, mind and soul. It is not

Gentlemen, if you have never

tht you will never do so.
It was a very hot day in summer,
and after a hard day's work done
by poor William, he decided to go
to bed quite early in the almost
dilapidated house which he rented
at a most reasonable rice because
cf its shabbiness.
On this poor man's bed (by that
I mean his crocus bags and worn'
out clothes which he spreads on ihe
floor) he retired to rest for the night.
The first hour he slept as sound-
ly as if then he were in Wonder,
land. Later on, he was awakened
because of the incessant antount of
bi:es which he received. When he
looked into his bed, he saw a regi-
ment of bugs running madly about
the place. He looked for their
weapons; but they were far too
small to be seen. He killed as
many as he could, yet many bugs
escaped through the fissures of the
floor. Then he looked at his hands
as if h- had just committed homi,
cide. "Is it the blood of a human
being". he asked himself. Yes, for
it was his own blood stolen by
these wretched parasites.
He tried to sleep once more, but
again and ?gain he was awakened
by these pests which caused him to
scratch his tender itching skin. Not
able to stand the burden, he there,
fore got up and sought comfort on
a chair. But once agiin he met
with a regiment of these brutes.

He got restless with his own sell;
grumbled, sighed and curse. I

The more he asked for the morning
to break the longer it took: on that
particular right the world was re,

its axis t oan on the other days

U. S. Psychiatrist Assures
Desegregation can be a
source of emotional and
ethical growth, a prominent
U. S. psychiatrist says.
Dr. Robert Coles, research
psychiatrist for Howard Uni,
versity Health Services, told
some 1,500 parents and pro,
fessional workers here yester,
day that the experience of
white and Negro children
undergoing desegregation in
Southern schools shows few
psychiatric problems.
"On the contrary," he
said, "they mostly manage to
cope with it successfully and
continue with their study and
plan. Even youths from
deeply convinced segregation,
ist homes manage an adjust,
ment to their Negro class,
mates, and in many cases
begin, with increasing comr
passion and respect, to see
them as individuals."

tactics used with shouting pickets

Opinion is also divided as to who

Nurses Of The World

At Home In London
A short distance from London's major air terminal in a solid grey
house (173 Cromwell Rd.) there is home for overseas nurses who are stu,
dying in Britain. The home is an International memorial to Florence
Nightingale; the Red Cross and St. John's Ambulance Brigade, have
greatly contributed to its foundation and upkeep. The original building
in Manchester Square was wiped out by a bomb during World War 11.
During the past 15 years nurses from 40 countries have stayed at this
pleasant a'-d comfortable hostel. It is more like a club than a hostel, for
all the nurses have their own front door key, rules and regulations are few,
and each nnrse has her own bed-sitting room with hot and cold running
water as well as the use of a communal laundry. The public rooms are
elegant. Exchange of ideas is one of the most valuable things the home
has to offer.

hemisphere (Cuba).
The Government of the People's Republic of China
has only itself to blame for the fact that, more than 14 years
after the establishment of the Republic, it has not yet been
recognized by more than half of the family of nations.
India was among the earliest to accord recognition to the
PRC, and was the first non/communist country to do
so ... Recognition of a government is not tantamount to
approval of its policies and actions. The recognition of
the PRC by Tunisia and France, the latest countries to
take this action, therefore does not imply approval of the
present Chinese regime, any more than India's continued
recognition of the PRC does.

British Opinion s
And Africa
"Britain", it has been said, ".as

has not yet found a role". Yet we
thought we had. Sails filled with A
the wind of change, Britain saw i
herself as the bringer of orderly in-
dependence. In the early stages this
seemed to be so. Ghana, a model

to their rightful place at the UN.
General de Gaulle recognized the
current of the time and placed no tr
obstacles in the path of the French- hi
speaking African states.
The states of East Africa posed a a
more difficult problem. Here many t

A Dog's Revenge

by Wilfred Sebastian
DO UNTRAINED, cadaverous looking country dogs have irte!ligencee Do
their memories serve them r-ght: The following story may help you
to answer these questions!
It was such a lovely moonlight night in mid July that my friend,
Samuel, and I decided to take a complete survey of the remotest and most
secluded parts of a village in the northeast of the island where 1 was then
holidaying. My friend never warned me that we might have had to put up
with the usual insul s of some badly-fed native dogs. However, if my friend,
who was of course a native of the village, had not get plans for his escape
from a sudden attack from one of those cunning creatures, I certainly did.
.After walking for about half an hour, we found ourselves crossing a
yard which was very dark due to surrounding trets. Naturally, we could
not have discovered any monster which might have hidden itself in some
cosy corner, just waiting for the arrival of an intruder. However, I was
the first to notice a low growling sound from a not-too-distant corner. I
immediately informed Samuel of the danger, telling him: "some dog is
lurking treacherously in our area". Samuel instantly remarked. "Man, I
know what. Is a dog dey say dat Mr. Jean have in his yard, and dey say
it bad. Nobody dozen pass dear. But let it come. I will good for it to-
night. Is me an' it".
Hardly had my friend completed his remark when the dog leapt at
my knee. Which helicopter could have taken off faster: I whistled away
from the creature's territory and found myself waiting for my friend about
one hundred yards away. My friend who had remained behind was also
attacked by the dog, and he too found it wise and expedient to flee away
from the dog's domain. But the canine monster followed us into the shin-
ing moonlight, determined to inject her pointed canines into our flsh. My
dear friend was equally prepared to take the life of this dear creature, My
chief aim was to move away from the sight of Mother Dog.
The duel that eusued between my friend and the dog, gave me the
impression that these two must of necessity have been very bitter enemies
over some long period. Oh - -- my! Stop that! The
resolute creature made several attacks, biting my friend on about two occa-
sions on his left leg, and my friend in return never stopped pelting stones at
the dog. Oh Lord! Many struck the poor creature forcefully. I was of
the opinion that the last blow struck her so painfully that she decided to
retreat and cease fire.
Then I, who had remain clear of the batdefield all the while, went
to the assistance of my poor friend who was then in deep agony, for the
animal's teeth had penetrated deep into his flesh, leaving holes through
which streams of blood spouted ceaselessly. (It is understood that my

him, he replied calmly, "'Don worry with that boy, but I know it waist
break". My friend I am glad to say did not perish from his wounds.
The next day I secretly inquired after the condition of- the dog, and
was told that it was suffering from a broken rib. I went to see the poor
creature myself and was much more in sympathy with her than witn my
dear friend. There was much guess work as to who had been so cruel to
the dog; but Mr. Jean finally admitted that Samuel struck the dog in sell
defence. However, I want to let readers know that Samuel could have
avoided the incident; instead, he actually encouraged the dog to come at
him by walking slowly.
Some days afterwards when the dog's rib had properly healed my
friend and I were walking casually down the road, not very far from Mr.
Jean's home. Look out! Ah--- What happened!
Up to now I am still doub ful. However, the very dog that Samuel had
, been merciless to, had taken its revenge. Samuel had received one of the
nastiest bites that one could ever get from a. dog, Did it bite me too?.
Oh no! Why?
I'll always be kind to dogs. Dear me!

Recently at a Labour Par-y Rally in Liverpool, Op-

Fire Disaster
"Cause Unknown"
"The cause of the fire is
unknown" was the verdict cf
the jury string at the Coro,
ne.'s Inquest on the Great
George Street fire on Samedi
Gras. Only a few witnesses
were called and most of them
could shed no light upon the
cause although Deputy Fire
Chief, Pedro Alexander Ber/
mont, stated that the fire
could have been caused by
an electrical short, since the
number of loose wires hang,
ing on both the North and
South sides, of "Zudies"
hcuse were a potential dan/
The fire apparently started
in Zudies house and he was
the first witness called. He
(full name Rudolph Du,
buisson) stated "It is a three
room house with a cellar
where I s t o r e d motorcar
spare parts and tyres. I do
not cook on the premises.
I am a mechanical repairer, a
radio engineer and a barber."
He went on to state how
Earlier he had been at his
mother's house on River St.

between $8,0o0 and $9,000.
He was not insured.
Nathalie Defoe, domestic
servant, could offer no ex/
planation of the fire: at 1245
a.m. she was awakened by
the cry of fire and found that
"Zudie's" room, in the same
house was or, fire. She es,
timated the loss of all she
owned at $600.00.
The rent collector, j.
Ralph Casimir, said that the
large house belonging to
Miss Geraldine Tavernier
was valued at about $1o,oo0
and was uninsured.
No police witnesses were
called, presumably since there
was no member of the police
force in the vicinity at the
It is the considered opinion
of many witnesses of this dis,
aster that the fire could have
been prevented from spread,

.-A'TURDAY, MARCH 21, 1964



Tomorrow the sun will be directly over the Equator
and this marks the first day of Spring. In Dominica it
will mark the true beginning of the larg,'st banana harvest
the island has ever known! And while we are thankfully
enriched by the imports of the twelve Dominicans who
spent t!me and money to journey to neigbouring Guadaloupe
io see ho v they do it .here, we must try and remember that
the Guadeloupe banana farmer is an independent planter,
not associated with other planters in the buyi:igselling
phases of the final marketing of tne fruit ... he must "go
it alone" and therefore whaz he does to make his froit more
appealing, produce faster, etc. has a larger bearing on his
returns. Competition to sell his figs keeps him on his
toes whereas in Dominica all we have to worry about is
weight and grade quality fruit doesn't bring a cent
more! Not yet, anyway!
For years, United Fru't Co. has used a senorita named
Chiquita to promote the sale of bananas. The appeal was
always institutional rather than tied to United Fruit's own
product. Now the company has decided to keep the 19-
yearold Chiquita in her own back yard. This will be
the first time a major effort to sell bananas as a branded
product instead of a commodity. Every other banana
raised and sold by UF will wear a "Chiquita Brand" seal.
Over $4 mill on (US) is being spent on the advertising
campaign: "We've put a seal on our peel." says Unied
Fruit, who, by the way, account for 53% of the U. S.
market for bananas.
Dominicans will enjoy reading Wesley EJson's new
book: "Retiring to the Caribbea.i" as the chapter on the
island is over twice as long as those describing such back,
ward places as Jamaica,; Barbados and Trinidad! The
book, a complete guide to-living conditions and costs in the
Catibbean, land values, business opportunities and taxes;
facts on, over 50 tropical islands -- with detailed maps is
-prnted btyDoOblteay 6 CompanyGaren Ciy,--44
York and -ells for $4.95 (US).
Mr. Edson's easy-going style of writing (just as he
talks),is a delight to read and we found' ourselves vitally
interested not in retiring to the Caribbean, of course, but
in what he has to say about such places as the Bahamas,
Antigua, St. Lucia (pronounced Loo/Shah) and, in fact,
all the places in that great crescent of islands from Abaco in
the Northern Bahamas to Trinidad. The book is intended
for an audience of people who have lived most of their lives
already and attempts to portray the differences these folks
will encounter should they wish to come to one of these
islands to Eve .. and die. However, there is not a word
in the book about the complete lack of morticians, import-
ing caskets or tombstones. After all, the book was written
to sell! And sell it will as it is aimed at a market that is
growing at an alarming rate.
As old demographers we are aware that by 1965 there
will be over 25 million people in the States who are over
65-years-old--and you can safely add 2 million more Can,
adians in the same boat. These folks have a problem:
where to live economically, safely and comfortably. Nine
tenths of them will stay right where they are until they die
-but there are thousands of them who are eyeing the Car/
ibbean and Mr. Edson's book will be of tremendous value
to those wanting "the sense of owing unlimited time -
the knowledge that (they) are no longer a cog in a high,
speed machine that can never stop" is the way he describes
And Dominica offers this "unlimited time", accord-
ing to Mr. Edson, like no other island anywhere! And
although he doesn't come right out and recommend Dom,
inica over all Caribbean islands, he devotes 26 pages to the
island whereas Jamaica gets 14, Barbados 12 and Trinidad
12! Antigua (pronounced AnTee/gah) gets only 8
pages! The hustle and bustle of the place definitely
doesn't interest the likes of Edson. And Americans are
only allowed to buy one acre of land there So they say.
