Scene: A street in London. Enter Mary and Agarh.i, two sisters
from Crandbay, Dominica, arriving in Lendon, EnglanJ.
MARY (carrying a heavy suitcase, drops her case and sits on it).
AGATHA (just behind her; stands beside her. Boih are tired).
MARY I wish I had Papa's donkey here!
AGATHA A suitcase is just as heavy in London as in Grandbay, isn't it.
MARY, (picking up suitcase) Well come, we can't stand here all day.
AGATHA (stubbornly) I am not going to move till I get my breath
back. I am all vorn out.
MARY Funny.. At home you carried banana bunches twice as
heavy as thit suitcase, and y-t you never complained.
AGATHA And back home I wasn't tramping on hard cement either!
MARY Oh, you make me tired, and I'm tired already.
AGATHA I am beginning to wish we had stayed at home and worked
with Mam in our little gard-n instead of trying to get work
MARY Where do you expect to see a poor man's prosperous estate?
I'd like to know! Nothing but work it, :he hot surn and
can't see a thing.
AGATHA Back home, you do see things.. I miss my pet cow and
her calf and mny little stripey cat, Kitty.
MARY Your'e a real country breed! All you know is cows and
cats. You can have your old country, but give me the .town
any day. I like this great big city.
AGATHA But God made the country and .nan made tht town.
MARY Oh, you're stupid! That is just stale!
AGATHA I know I am;... if I wasn't stupid I would not have lis-
tered to you when you wanted to drag me to England.
MARY Let's go we must find a plac- to stay in.
AGATHA pointingg) I here is somewhere on that street, I believe,
where they take in West Indians.(She stops and begins to sing).
MARY Stop that! Stop that! You are liable to be put in goal.
AGATHA 7'-hen I was in Grandbay, I could sing where I wanted,
MARY In London you must go to sing in the Singers Building.
AGATHA I suppose they go for bamboos and fence posts in a Post
MARY Hush! People here don't, use any fence posts.
AGATHA Then how do they get them?

MARY YOu can't take aff your shoes in the street. Remember you
are not in Grandbay any more.
AGATHA C h, my foot it hurrig me (put; on shoe again and rises)
MARY Come, let's find the hotel so we can buy a big cup of tea
to drink. People are always drinking tea in .ngland.
.AGATHA O.K. But how much do they charge?
MARY Six dollari a day, I think.
AGATHA That's not bad, fthey give a big plate 'of food with fig and
crab and yampiin ..,
MARY I don't think we will get all that; for you pay six dollars
when you eat yourself, and you have to pay more if they
AGATHA What! Me! I am really going home now! I am not eating
myself nor will I let anybody eat me so thar's definite.
MARY Come on, Agatha, before you wear your mouth out with
AGATHA Don't tell me anything, because I ati: sittit g on my suitcase

If he is kind-and some of the English are kind-he will
give me a big cup of tea and something to eat, too. All for
no charge. And tomorrow I am going homie-to Grandbay.
MARY Well, Agatha, I believe I'll go back with you... for Eng-

BOTH Yes, that's right.
MARY I am Mary, from Dominica. This is my sister Agatha,
STRANGER I am Jane, and I come from St. Lucia. Hlow long have
you been here?
MARY Only since yesterday, but my sister has already become fedup
and I don't want to stay any longer, because of that.
AGATHA I am really tired of London, lady. I am not accustomed to
this foolish place. It hasn't enough trees and grass ,nd ani-
JANE I won't blame you, for when I first came here I stayed two
days and then I started packing to go back to my home at
Reduit. But I am an English woman now...
JANE I found out England has plenty of nice country-places out-
side the city...
AGATHA Is that so. But I want to go to a place that looks like Grand-
bay, Dominica. That's all.
MARY She is such a foolish girl. I am really disgusted with her.
JANE You can come home and live with me. Poor girls! I will
make a place for you. When you have rested you can look
AGATHA I have made up my mind. I will not stay. A boat will be
passing just now, and I will be going back. Little K'thy, my
stripey cat, and Papa's cow and calf, and everybody at home
will be waiting.
MARY Well, I have changed my mind. I am going to remain in
London with Jane and settle down. When you go bfck to
Grandbay, I'm sure you will regret it. I won't go bome until
I have some cash in my hand.
AGATHA Not me! It is you who will freeze to death az Christma:-timc.

The following statement
issued by the Ministry of
Labour and Social Services
on the 17th July, (Friday) on
a proposed new Education
Code and on the basis of
eligibility for entrance to
Secondary Schools is released
fot general infbrmation:-*
"It has become necessary
for Govern-.ent to issue a
polcy statement on certain
educational questions which
have been discussed recently
in the press an'i elsewhere.
A co Je for Education is
now in the course of prepaid
ration and is being consi/
cered and discussed by the
Board, o f E location. It
must clearly be emphasized
that the code is yet not
Since this question of an
Education Code :s a vital one
requiring as much consult,
tion as possible, it has been
decided that before this Code
is finalised and passed as a
regulation it will be published
The next important ques/
tibn is that of admission ,to
Secondary Schools. Until
the Code is finalised the
method fo r eligibility to
Secondary Schools will be as
(i) by Pupils who have-
been successful in the
Common Ent r a ncee
(ii) by pupils who have
passed the School
and who are not over
i j years;
(iii) by the Head of
Schools who are satis-
fied in their discretion
tbar Candida:-s for
admis ion have reach,
ed a satisfactory stand-
ard, provided they are
not 15 years.
It is clear then that the
Common Entrance Examina-
tion is not the only system
whereby intry may be gained
to a Secondary School. The
Pass List of the Common
Entrance Examination has
been published. It will be
clear from zhis statement that
it is not only pupils who
have passed the Common
Entrance Examination c -e
will be eligible for admission
to a Secondary School."'--

Australia Well On Top
In Fourth Test
Despite the drastic purging that
the England selec:ors employed in an
all out attempt to win this fourth
and vital test xn search of the ashes,
concurrently held by Australia, the
home team's bowling suffered a
severe blasting by the Australian
opmners Lawry and Simpson. But
before going into the details of the
first days play, let us review the
changes made by England and keep
up the lively pace so ably started by
the commentators on supplying so
much statistics on each player and
Two Greats Discarded
There are many who felt that
England's team needed re-organisa-
tion, but probably very few expected
the panic-purge which the team
received. Trueman, Cowdrey,
Flavell and Gifford were discarded
and Mike Smith, Price, Mortimore
and Rumsey were included in the
Trueman has not been in his best
form, in fact far from it, and even
in the county games holds little terror
for batsmen. But many are of the
opinion that his successors were not
all that impressive either, with the
possible exception of Cartwright.
ruemarn has played in 64 test
marches for England taken 297
wickets more than any other bowler
in the history of test cricket. He is
Cowdicy, one of the greatest bats,-
men that England has produced in
the pcst-war period did not receive
the ncd of the selectors because he
totalled 22 in 3 innings since the
injury which kept him out of the
third test at Leeds which Australia
won by 7 wickets. At present Cow.-
drey is only 71 runs short of the stupe,
dous feat of scoring 5,oo0 suns in test
matches. He has made 72 appearan,-
ces for England and has 15 test cen
turies to his credit. Only Hammond
7,249, Harvey 6,149, Hutto 16,971,
Hobbs 5410, Bradman 6996, and
Compton 5807, have surpassed the
Smith In Then Out
Mike Smith, Warwickshire's cap-
tain elect for the forthcoming M.C C.,
tour of South Africa in November
was among the twelve but was left
out of the final eleven. Smith who
has made 27 appearances for England
scoring 1,396 tuns for an average of
34.90 with two centuries has been in
fine batting form this season and was
expected to play, instead of which
the selectors gambled on the use of 3
mediumpacers, the so-called "seam,
ers" on the Old Trafford pitch.
John Price of Middlesex has played
for England abroad and collected 14
wickets at a pric,: (forgive the pun)
of 27.35 apiece. He bowled almost
innocuously today (the first day).
Fred Rumsey impressed the Aus.-
sies at Taunton earlier in May on a
green top, but conditions are not the
same in Somerset as in Manchester
and though he has ,some hostility he
got nothing from the wicket. This is
his test debut.
John Mortimore, Gloucestershire's
off-spinner and at present one of the
chief wicket takers in the county games
i87 to his credit) was called in. He
has played 8 previous tests and taken
13 w.ckets at the high cost of 47
Tom 7.artwvright, the leading wic-
ket taker of the current season, played
in his first test. He was twelth man
in the ist test against the West Indies
last ye'r and in thr third test against
the Aussies. Cartwright is one of
the Shackleton mould, impeccable
length and direction and consistent
accuracy, So un:o the match itself
Simson, Lawry Set
Simpson took advantage of elect-
ing to bat after winning the toss,
and himself and Lawry made the
Englishmen toil almost all day for
the 1st wicket. Lawry, played a
solid and workmanlike ninings of
106 before being run out (the 4th
time in 7 innings this season)
Simpson, cool and methodical pro-
ceeded to his Ist test century.
Lawry's hundred included 2 sixes
and 5 fours and took him 235
mins. It was his 3rd century against
England and the 24th of his career.
Simpson is undefeated with r109,
the 38th century of his career, and it
included 6 boundaries and 50o singles
made in 51- hours. It was his 3oth
test match for Australia, his 5znd
test innings and his fifth century on
the current tour, having hit previous'
hundreds against Somerset, Surrey,
M.C.C. and Leicestershire.
Their partnership of 201 for the
1st wicket stands as a record for
for Australia, the previous best
being 180, accomplished by Bards'
ley and Gregory in 19o09 at the

are in an almost, unassailable posi,
tion and now' strong favourites to
retain the ashes which Richie
Benaud and his men wrestled from
Peter May and Company in Aus
tralia in 1958.
The latest score before we went
to press was Australia 570 for 4,
Simpson 265 not out.
The 1964 Cricket Season came
to a quiet conclusion with the finals
of the single wicket competition and
the distribution of prizes and tro,
phies. Dublin beat Star Lestrade in
the finals to emerge champion of the
knockout competition. It was a fine
effort by the Mayor when one recalls
F that he only plays off and on for
Warwicks. Dublin of Casuals is
very keen and deserves his win.
Walker of D.G.S. did well to
reach the semi-finals. After the
event, trophies were delivered to
Combermere and D.G.S. the Div
I and II champions respectively.
Combermere has set the initiative
by naming their athletes to partici,
pate in the forthcoming Athletic
meet what of other clubs?
The visiting Athletes from
Jamaica who were intransit here for
a day expected a programme to have
been arranged for them. One offi-
cial said he wrote D.A.S.A. two
letters but got one reply and so
though that everything was settled.
They were very disappointed. Some-.
where along the way there must have
been a misunderstanding. Our stan-
da:d of athletics is terribly low it
con hardly sink further, so let us not

gang. He has got him-elf mixed
up with hoodlums and does his best
with their help to become leader of
the gang again. He fights violently
with his successor and even takes
away his girl, who is trying to persu-
ade herself that ss.e prefers the wild
living of Nick Rodg-rs to that of
Randolph White, the present gang-
leader (an easy going, serious type).

(Cont. from page 1)
Next year, it is estimated, over
850,000 children in the West Indies
will be attending school. A compre-
hensive educational programme awaits
them, although in most cases there
will be an emphasis on only four
main subjects reading, number
work, social studies and science.
For ea.h of these subjects textbooks
are needed over three million of
them even if each child were to have
no more than one book per subject
per year. The plan is to produce
workbooks, textbooks, and teaching
material for pupil of five to fifteen in
all areas of primary school work in
the West Indies. The books are
being planned, written and tested
throughout the region. The teams of
authors for each series are drawn from
different territories; they include
University staff, education officers
and teachers who have already done
successful work in an appropriate
field of teaching. The first products
will be ready for printing by the end
of the year.
THERE will be a- meeting;
of all Footballers to be held
at the R"'seau Girls' School
in Bath R-ad, on Friday, 7th
