MINISTER CHARGES THREE
"Insubordination" -- Then
THREE youthful lomal-born teachers on the staff of the
Dominica Grammar School were recently charged
with 'insubordination in an official communication directed to
their Head Master by H. H. the Administrator. They
appeared this Friday. before a one-man Commission (Mr.
J.J. Copland, Magistrate); but meanwhile che indictment,
which was evidently not serious enough to warrant either
dismissal or the defence services of counsel, had been altered
to "grave discourtesy to a Minister of Government."

It Falls Into Place
By Philip Warner
Cont. from pace 3
In one of those old colonial-style buildings not E.r
from the cricket pitch there lived an English lady: Lady
Chanterel, of whom Mrs. Vaudime had spoken. When
this tall, paper-white relic of past days surprised me by
opening her own front door, I saw that there w.re hundr' ds
of books in her house, ,nd was heartened to ask if I could
come in, since a relative of mine had lived there in the
"But of course", she said. She looked lonely. I
expect I looked hot. "I will ring for some iced orange-
juice". So it came about that we sat facing each other in
the quick-falling dusk, sipping and smoking, and I tro.d
her of my mission.
"You have seen Mrs. Vaudime ." she asked.
"Yes. I nave heard all about the poet's miserable
end. And I've been out to hit estate. BUt I can't some,
how understand it all.",
"I expect I may have something to add," she said.
"For he used to come here two or three times a week, right
up to the end. As you see, I live very simply. I do not
dine at the fashionable hour. But our friend Chrysostome
would never take account of that. He started coming
here, jutt as you have done tonight simply announced
himself and walked in. He wore a panama hat just like
I blushed and squeezed my bat in embarrassment.
"He always went straight to a certain chair and sat
there, staring at me. At first I was confused, if not alarm,
ed, and used to postpone my evening meal; for he would
nevtr accept my invitation to dine. But after a while I
just carried on as if he was not present. I hadcom_ to
realize that he wasn't looking at me at all."
"Mrs. Vaudime said that he was always missing
"Precisely. ,The thing that he was missing was love."
I cannot describe the shock that English lady gave me
when she said this so gently.
Lady Chanterel got. up and led the way io a silvcrydark garden.
All at once I knew myself to be on familiar ground. I was a little boy
again and I beard the softness of a young woman's voice in brief tropical
twilight, a voice speaking lightly to someone further in the shadows.
"He saw me, but he did no) see me you understand? He may have
seen a white dress and heard an English accent; but he was really looking
at someone from his past."
"He was looking at my Cousin Caroline," I said, "Her hammock
svwung there, between those two trees. She used to read out bits of a
novel... her hair was red lke a flamboyant, and she was as wilful as
Diana of the Crossways and maybe as virtuous..."
"You are a romantic" said Lady Chanterel. smiling.
"Which is what a poets biographer should be."
"You are probably right," she said. "It falls into place."
"It fails into place," I repeated. Yes. now I could imagine Cousitn
Caroline on horseback, a woman at the height of her young maturity,
her russet mop waving upwards; I could see her touch the poet's check
playfully with her ridingswitch as she spurred her pony and called out
between the orange lanes of that teeming jungle: "When are you going
to put me into a poem, Chrysostome?" At last I understood the long
strain of Chrysceto.-;'s nostalgia for Europe and his friends and the com-
pulsion which kept him away from them, as well as his dramatic at-
tempts to restrain nature.
"She was probably the only adult orson he ever cared for," Lady
Ghanterel mused aloud. "Certainly the first." A procession of picturesque
young persons with large dark eyes dropped from poems like orchid pet-
als on the grass, merging into one exquisite prototype.
Taking my leave like an old-fashioned romantic, I raised the strange
lady's hand to my lips to show her that grace and courtesy had not passed
with the poet Chrysostom, but I was thinking: I salute you, Cousin Caro,
line. You didn't seem like a romantic character, but because my poet was in love
with you, perhaps to the very end, I am putting you into a story.
Outside Lady Chanterel's walled garden I met up with the last of
the cricket-pitch crowd. Some of my one-ttme childhood friends recog-
nised me and started chiding me for moping around seriously when such
a great match was being played.
But what did I care? Long after the cricket score was forgotten,
Chrysostome's beautiful melancholy poems, loaded with the nostalgia
of the north and for the south, woeild be read by a few people, somewhere
in the world, and the mystery of his sorrows would be talked of at sunset
between friends. I muttered loudly enouel- portsgoers to hear:
"Never mind cricket. Never mind whether he was a Frenchman cr a
Britisher, a coloured man or a white man. ..he was a great poet who-n
we did not appreciate, and he will always be ore of us."

Invincibles Earn Victory
IVINCIBLES had to fight every inch
of the way against supposedly
nlowly Dazzlers when these two met
last Friday. Dazzlers, showing i n-
proved form and tremendous fighting
spirit held the girls in flaming red at
Bay for a very loig while, Invin,
cables were playing below normnil
form and perhaps too., the opposition
too much for granted. Despite this,
however, Jean Dixon shot very well,
though she missed more goals than
usual. She found the basket 2z6 times
as compared to James' 7 and
K. Laronde 13 to Moea Lewis' 4
Rockets Another Win
ON a very wet court and generally
cold weather conditions Rockets
registered yet another win to main-
tain their unbeaten record at the top
of the championship table, when they
defeated Hummingbirds by 26 goals
to 12. The birds played more pur-
posefully than in their previous
encoLnter, their defence were parti-
cularly alert. Rockets, handicapped
by Didier who was ill but still played
the match, showing nothing of her
trua form,r found goal getting harder
,than usual, but Johnson and Jules,
still showed adept mid court play.

SDmiersq have continued to show
improved play to the tune that they
were rewarded with their first win of
the. season when they brought down
Red Jets by 23 goals to 16. It was
an impressive victory and a very
evenly fought contest. Red. Jets
didn't show their normal quickness
of foot and sure catching and pass-

on this showing sounder technique.
